         Two American hunters are one big step closer to legally killing a pair of black rhinos in Namibia and bringing their body parts home as trophies. On Thursday, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced online that it was approving the hunters' request to import trophies from two upcoming hunts sanctioned by the Namibian government. After sifting through thousands of citizen comments over the past several months, the U.S. federal agency defended its decision by saying the hunts, which are slated to raise money for conservation, are part of Namibia's science-based management strategy for black rhinos. In short, the agency said the permit request meet the legal standard of allowing limited hunting of an endangered species to benefit its conservation overall. There are about 4.000 to 5.000 black rhinos left in the world, down from 70.000 in the 1960s.
          Hunter and reality TV host Corey Knowlton had applied for an import permit following his $350.000 winning bid for a hunting permit in Namibia at an auction last years held by the Dallas Safari Club.

         People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals General Counsel Delcianna Winders stated that the foundation will be filing a lawsuit over this outrageous decisio to allow two sports hunters to bring back the bodies of animals shot in cold blood to decorate their trophy walls. While according to Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of the US Humane Society, the permits are fundamentally inconsistent with the purpose of the Endangered Species Act, Which is to conserve endangered species, not to authorize their slaughter and calls the agency's decision "the worst sort of mixed message to give a green light to American trophy hunters to kill rhinos for their heads. "But the Fish and Wildlife Service argued that the money accrued from throphy hunting of black rhinos has been used to fund annual black rhino counts, improve rhino crime investigation and prosecution, and ensure the traceability of all rhino horn owned by Namibia.

         Frenchman Edouard de Laboulaye first proposed the idea of a monument for the United States in 1865. Ten years later, sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi was commissioned to design a sculpture with 1876 in mind for completion, to commemorate the centennial of the American Declaration of Independence. The Statue was named "Liberty Enlightening the World" and was a joint effort between America and France.
         It was agreed that the American people were to build the pedestal, and the French people were responsible for the Statue and its assembly in the United States. However, dearth of funds was a problem on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. In France, public fees, various forms of entertainment, and a lottery were among the methods used to raise funds. In the United States, benefit theatrical events, art exhibitions, auctions and prize fights assisted in providing needed funds. Financing for the pedestal was completed in August 1885, and pedestal construction was finished in April 1886.
         The Statue was completed in France in July 1884 and arrived in New York Harbor in June 1885 onboard the French frigate"Isere." In transit, it was reduced to 350 individual pieces and packed in 214 crates. It was reassembled on its new pedestal in four months' time. On October 28, 1886, President Grover Cleveland oversaw the dedication of the Statue of Liberty in front of thousands of spectators.
          The United States Lighthouse Board had responsibility for the operation of the Statue of Liberty until 1901, when the care and operation of the Statue was placed under the War Department. A Presidential Proclamation declared Fort Wood (and the Statue of Liberty within it) as a National Monument on October 15, 1924, and the monument's boundary was set at the outer edge of Fort Wood. In 1933, the care and administration of the National Monument was transferred to the National Park Service.
         On September 7, 1937, Jurisdiction was enlarged to encompass all of Bedloe's Island and in 1956, the island's name was changed to Liberty Island. On May 11, 1965, Ellis Island was also transffered to the National Park Service and became part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument.

         How do you stop disease-carrying mosquitoes from multiplying ? That's the question plaguing the Brazilian government, which has been sending army soldiers door to door on a mission to fight Zika-the virus suspected of causing microcephaly in infrants born to infected mothers. They are giving leaflets saying that people should have to keep your backyard clean from rubbish, said photographer Tomas Munita, who has been documenting Recife, a northeastern state capital with a population of 3,7 million. Any stray items left outside, even a bottle cap, can collect rainwater and become a breeding ground for the Aedes aegypti mosquitoes that are thought to be the main carriers of Zika.
          But in Brazil's favelas, or poor neighborhoods, Munita says it's hard to imagine that the government's information campaign will have much effect. It's almost impossible to control something like that in that kind of place he said. Many houses in the favelas are make shift shacks of cardboard and discarded sheet metal. With limited access to clean water and garbage collection, trash piles up and collects water, creating a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes.
          The mosquito scourge goes far beyond these tight-packed neighborhoods. Aedes aegypti has been incredibly hard to kill since it arrived in Latin American with the slave trade from Africa. Huge eradication programs in the 1950s stamped out the mosquito in some countries, only to have them surge back in the 1970s and '80s. Even the country's health minister, Marcelo Castro, has ben quoted as saying that Brazil is "badly losing the battle"against mosquitoes, which aren't just a threat because they could carry Zika. In Recife, Munita says that some people who aren't pregnant fear catching chikungunya and dengue from mosquitoes more than Zika, since those diseases cause more severe illness.
