Special Report: Flirting with retreat along Britain's battered shores 12.12.2014 Yahoo: Top Stories
By Alister Doyle and Ryan McNeill HAPPISBURGH, England (Reuters) - Bryony Nierop-Reading has what she calls a million-dollar view from her clifftop property in east England, looking out over North Sea swells beyond a sandy beach where gulls wheel overhead. Her bungalow was demolished by the local council after a December 2013 storm bit a 33-foot (10 meter) chunk out of the cliff, leaving her home perched over a void. “I feel bitter about it.” All the more so because she passed up a one-time local government offer to buy her out. Now she’s out of options: Current British law “does not confer ... any right to protection from flooding or coastal erosion,” as the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) puts ...

In the battle between native and invasive wetland plants, a new Duke University study finds climate change may tip the scales in favor of the invaders -- but it's going to be more a war of attrition than a frontal assault."Changing surface-water temperatures, rainfall patterns and river flows will likely give Japanese knotweed, hydrilla, honeysuckle, privet and other noxious invasive species an edge over less adaptable native species," said Neal E. Flanagan, visiting assistant professor at the Duke Wetland Center, who led the research.

You need a GPS to follow Dark & Stormy (next up: 'Hothouse' in the Grain Belt atrium) 10.12.2014 MinnPost
Courtesy of Dark & Stormy Productions/Heidi Bohnenkamp The cast of Dark & Stormy’s "The Hothouse," cockwise from left: Bill McCallum, John Catron, Mark Benninghofen, Sara Marsh, Robert Dorfman. To keep track of Dark & Stormy Productions, you’ll need a GPS. Founded just two years ago by actress Sara Marsh, D&S is nomadic theater, popping up in unexpected places with bare-bones shows featuring top-tier actors. Its first, “Outside Providence,” three one-act plays by Edward Allan Baker, took place in late summer 2012 at the Engine Room, a storefront in downtown Minneapolis. For David Mamet’s “Speed-the-Plow” in early 2013, they moved to the Miller Bag Building on East Hennepin. Adam Bock’s “The Receptionist” last December had its regional premiere in a recently vacated office at Traffic Zone Center for Visual Art. In May, “The Drunken City,” also by Bock, was presented in the party room of an apartment building in St. Paul.  Where next? The two-story atrium of the Grain Belt Bottling House, a space so big ...
