BUS

Elevated bus debuts at Beijing International High-Tech Expo
"A model of a Transit Elevated Bus (TEB) debuted at the 19th China Beijing International High-Tech Expo, which concluded on Sunday.
The TEB is a purely homegrown invention of China, with its passenger compartment sitting above other vehicles on the road below,
allowing cars to pass underneath. The TEB is designed to increase the utilization of road space.
"With a carrying capacity of 1,200 people at a time, the TEB has the same functions as the subway while its cost of construction is less than one fifth of the subway. Its construction can be finished in one year," said Bai Zhiming, the engineer in charge of the TEB project.
 Trial operations of such a bus will start in Qinhuangdao City, north China's Hebei Province, in the second half of 2016."

TUNA

4 reasons to tackle destructive fishing this World Tuna Day - 2 May 2016
"On World Tuna Day, the Greenpeace ship Esperanza is at sea stopping the destructive fishing practices of the largest tuna company
on the planet – Thai Union – which owns popular tuna brands like John West, Petit Navire, Mareblu and Chicken of the Sea,
and supplies huge companies like Walmart...
Here are four of the biggest reasons to stand up against Thai Union’s destructive practices:
1) Bycatch – marine life that is caught but that isn’t tuna – is killed as collateral damage.
2) Social injustice. Industrial fishing fleets are literally stealing sustainable fishers’ livelihoods out from under them.
 3) Overfishing. Plenty of fish in the sea, there are not.
4) Pollution. Seriously, do we really need more of it in our oceans?"
