Presented by Kristine Nichols, Ph.D., Soil Microbiologist, USDA Agricultural Research Service Soil as the heart of the farming ecosystem is driven by biological activities to increase soil organic matter, which represents a small percentage of the soil by weight, but controls over 90% of the soil functions. This presentation introduces viewers to the concepts of 1) rhizosphere biology, the area immediately surrounding the plant root with the highest concentration of microbiological activity; 2) soil "livestock" consisting of bacteria, fungi, nematodes, protozoa and microarthropods and representing the greatest concentration of biomass anywhere on the planet; 3) glomalin, a biological glue that holds soil together and improves soil aggregation; and 4) building soil biota to improve soil quality, increase nutrient cycling, and long term sustainability using cover crops, no-till, and other sustainable farming practices. The opinions expressed in this video are those of the presenter(s) and do not necessarily reflect the opinion of USDA.

Three stories. One University. Professor of Dance Endalyn Taylor has toured the world with the Dance Theatre of Harlem and performed on Broadway in the original cast of “The Lion King.” Raised on the south side of Chicago, Taylor left home at age 16 to become a principal dancer at the Dance Theatre of Harlem. Recently, Taylor traveled back to New York with a group of her Illinois students to perform a piece she choreographed at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. She encourages her students by telling them “never underestimate the power of you … never forget that what you have that no one else has is your unique perspective.” When the founding members of Definition Theatre Company graduated from Illinois in 2012, they wanted to change the world. Frustrated by a lack of diversity in the world of theater, they decided to form their own company. So far, the members have produced over a dozen plays in Chicago with the goal of diversity both on stage and behind the stage. The company has earned critical acclaim, and in 2017, award-winning Goodman Theatre Director Chuck Smith worked with Definition to stage Brandon Jacobs-Jenkins groundbreaking work “An Octoroon.” The play is a racial farce that challenges stereotypes from plantation America to the present day. Phil Collins, Steely Dan and Tito Puente are just a few of the artists who have been backed up by faculty members of the University of Illinois Jazz Studies Program. Their real-life experiences and their love of teaching are an important draw to students deciding to come to Illinois to study jazz. Because a big part of honing their craft is live performance, students and faculty perform several times a week at a small venue in downtown Urbana called the Iron Post, an authentic setting that has helped jazz studies at Illinois rank among the top 10 of college programs.

Sleep-Away Program for Those in Grades 3-10 For more than 80 years, Camp Michikamau has offered a highquality traditional overnight camp for youth and teens. The camp program provides a balance of structured and choice activities. During their first week, campers experience every program area at least once as well as the daily swim lessons. During the second week, campers are given the freedom to choose their activities such as rock climbing, kayaking, nature programs, dance and much more. Each camper receives daily swim lessons taught by qualified instructors. After dinner, campers enjoy an activity such as game night, a dance, scavenger hunt, gold rush, talent show or campfire. Weekends offer variety in programming. Each weekend has a different theme and the entire camp is involved in activities such as international weekend, survivor weekend and color war. Sunday mornings are a reflective time for campers where the YMCA's core values are discussed. Some of the most memorable moments happen on the out-ofcamp overnight experience. During each session, campers will plan their meal, pack their gear, hike to their destination, build a fire, and cook and sleep under the stars. Camp Michikamau prides itself on hiring well-trained, dedicated staff who return year after year and come from across America and around the world. The majority of our American counselors have all attended our camps themselves, which helps them relate to our first-time campers. The diversity of our staff enhances the experience for the campers. Each cabin has two counselors who provide a nurturing and safe environment as campers develop skills in athletics, challenge course, arts and swimming, all while having fun, making new friends, and creating lifelong memories.

The Club of Rome and the Smithsonian Institution's Consortium for Understanding and Sustaining a Biodiverse Planet hosted a symposium on March 1, 2012 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the launching of Limits to Growth, the first report to the Club of Rome published in 1972. This book was one of the earliest scholarly works to recognize that the world was fast approaching its sustainable limits. Forty years later, the planet continues to face many of the same economic, social, and environmental challenges as when the book was first published. The morning session focused on the lessons of Limits to Growth. The afternoon session addressed the difficult challenges of preserving biodiversity, adjusting to a changing climate, and solving the societal issues now facing the planet. The symposium ended with a thought-provoking panel discussion among the speakers on future steps for building a sustainable planet. W. John Kress is the Director of the Consortium for Understanding and Sustaining a Biodiverse Planet at the Smithsonian as well as curator and research scientist with the Department of Botany at the National Museum of Natural History. He was born in Illinois and received his education at Harvard University (B. A. 1975) and Duke University (Ph. D. 1981) where he studied tropical biology, ethnobotany, evolution, and plant systematics. Among his many scientific and popular papers on tropical biology are his books entitled Heliconia: An Identification Guide, Heliconias -- Las Lamaradas de la Selva Colombiana, A New Century of Biology (with Gary Barrett), A Checklist of the Trees, Shrubs, Herbs, and Climbers of Myanmar, and Plant Conservation -- A Natural History Approach (with Gary Krupnick). His book The Weeping Goldsmith (Abbeville Press) describes his experiences exploring for plants in the isolated country of Myanmar. Dr. Kress is also interested in the intersection of science and art. To this end he has published two original art projects: one called Botanica Magnifica (Abbeville Press) with photographer Jonathan Singer, and the second a book on plant evolution, entitled The Art of Plant Evolution (Kew Publications), with Dr. Shirley Sherwood using contemporary botanical art to illustrate the diversity of the plant world. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and currently Executive Director of the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation. Dr. Kress is an Adjunct Professor of Biology at the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden, Chinese Academy of Sciences in Yunnan.

Tuesday 16 October, 2018 Councils now face unprecedented legal liabilities and financial risks if they fail to address obligations arising from climate change. Those who fail to mitigate, adapt to or disclose climate risks in their governance and decision-making will expose themselves to legal liabilities – including potentially breaching fiduciary duties. With climate risks now occupying the minds of mainstream investors, those not addressing climate risks will increasingly struggle to access affordable finance and insurance. On Tuesday 16 October, Resilient South and Resilient Hills & Coasts collaborated to host a series of workshops to understand the legal and financial implications of climate change for councils in South Australia. SPEAKERS Nina Keath – Introduction (0:00 – 5:45 mins) Senior Strategic Planner, City of Onkparinga – EMCEE Sarah Barker – Legal and Financial Risks from Climate Change (5:46 – 33:48 mins) Special Counsel, Minter Ellison – internationally renowned expert on climate change governance risk. John Nairn – How our climate is changing (33:49 – 43:14) South Australian State Director of the Bureau of Meteorology – widely regarded expert on weather-related climate risks, with a focus on heatwaves.
