The holidays are the perfect time to reconnect with loved ones and Madre Tierra. ❄️Join us in making this special season both festive and eco-conscious! ❤️

Tap into nature’s endless inspiration- get outside and let Madre Tierra ignite your creativity. By foraging items like pine cones, sticks, pebbles or even using dried fruit, we can create beautiful and earth-friendly decor. From crafting wood ornaments to assembling stick figurines, the possibilities are endless. Consider upcycling old sweaters into cozy stockings and turning pine cones into delightful wreaths or charming rose ornaments.

Embracing sustainable practices in decorating not only reduces waste but also adds a personal touch to your celebrations! Happy holidays!

MIAMI ENGLISH: An English dialect that has brewed over decades of Latino migration to Miami. New arrivals and their children have learned English through direct translations of Spanish phrases — and that has evolved into a distinct local dialect.

Thanks to a recent study, Miami — known for its beaches and politics — is finally being recognized for its unique approach to the English language.

🌳 Research shows that greater neighborhood privilege is linked to reduced firearm violence. Interestingly, this privilege correlates with more green areas. Could planting trees in disadvantaged communities help reduce gun violence?

A new study from Eugenia South examines whether neighborhoods with greater privilege and more tree cover have less firearm violence across six U.S. cities.

The Pope threw his weight behind calls for an end to fossil fuels in a message delivered here at COP28. In a wide-ranging statement, Pope Francis called for an end to coal, oil and gas as well as lifestyle changes to save the planet.
He also asked for debt forgiveness for poorer countries hit by climate change.

In a message to the summit in Dubai, the Pope urges the world to move away from coal, oil and gas.

🍃La justicia ambiental es crucial en la lucha contra el cambio climático. El compromiso de países para destinar fondos a la justicia climática es un paso positivo hacia la equidad, reconociendo que quienes menos han contribuido al problema son los más afectados. Es fundamental seguir avanzando en acciones que promuevan un futuro sostenible y justo para todos.

El acuerdo contiene el compromiso de varios países de entregar más de doscientos millones de dólares a lo que se ha venido llamando la justicia climática, el hecho de que los países que menos han contribuido al cambio climático son los que más lo están sufriendo.

Water is life 💧 but we are quickly moving away from environmental justice when it comes to this previous resource. Even as extreme heat dries up more aquifers and wells and leaves more people thirsty, luxury water has become fashionable among the world’s privileged, who uncap and taste it like fine wine.

Fine water is a growing category worldwide, even in water-stressed countries like India, where one company imports natural spring water that's bottled in sleek glass bottles in Bhutan.

Great news 🤩 Sixteen young people will launch a new program with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) administrator Michael S. Regan. Climate change harms youth communities and their future in major ways. Input from young leaders is needed to address a range of environmental issues, Regan said, after publicly announcing the plan a year prior.

A new youth council will speak to environmental issues impacting young people.

Puerto Rico Town 🇵🇷

The Illinois General Assembly in 2021 passed a law, championed by the Illinois Legislative Latino Caucus, allowing for the designation of cultural districts to promote economic development and also preserve historic traditions. That could theoretically include the Paseo Boricua and other ethnic neighborhood enclaves such as Chinatown and Little Village.

The Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity, or DCEO, in September launched the program, inviting applications for five cultural districts to be named this year and another five in 2024.

A state law could pave the way for a cultural and economic revitalization along a struggling corridor in Humboldt Park.

Let trees age: 🌲Tree planting is great but PROTECTING standing forests is still critical. In fact, by allowing existing trees to grow old in healthy ecosystems and restoring degraded areas, scientists say 226 gigatonnes of carbon could be sequestered, equivalent to nearly 50 years of US emissions for 2022.

Report says cutting emissions should still be key priority as it cautions against mass monoculture tree-planting

There is no place immune from climate change, Biden administration officials and the report’s scientists emphasized, and this summer’s extreme weather was a deadly reminder.

This summer alone, the Phoenix area baked through a record 31 consecutive days above 110 degrees, a shocking heatwave that was partly responsible for more than 500 heat-related deaths in Maricopa County in 2023 – its deadliest year for heat on record.

Some states – including California, Florida, Louisiana and Texas – are facing more significant storms and extreme swings in precipitation. Learn more:

The impacts of a rapidly warming climate are being felt in every corner of the US and will worsen over the next 10 years as planet-warming pollution continues to rise, according to a stark new report from federal agencies.

🗳️🇺🇸 GOTV TIME! The Virginia general election will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 7th. Polls close statewide at 7 p.m. ET.

What's on the ballot?

The Associated Press will provide coverage for 106 contests in Virginia, including 35 in the state Senate, 68 in the House of Delegates, two commonwealth's attorney races in Fairfax and Loudoun counties and a ballot measure in Richmond on authorizing a casino. All 40 state Senate seats and 100 state House seats are up for election this year, but several seats in both chambers are uncontested.

Control of Virginia’s legislature is up for grabs in Tuesday's off-year general election. Republicans hold a slim majority in the House of Delegates, while Democrats hold an equally narrow majority in the state Senate.
