Beautiful scenery and a temperate climate make central Taiwan an important part of the islands tourism map. In March of 2001 the Tourism Bureau combined three major mountain scenic spots in this area --Lion Head Mountain, Lishan, and Mt. Bagua--into the Tri-Mountain National Scenic Area. The national scenic area covers a vast territory and is easily accessible via a convenient network of highways. Would you like to see how the Tourism Bureaus brand-new planning has developed and packaged these rich tourism resources?

Klaus Lampe, IRRI director general, International Rice Research Institute (http://irri.org) 1988-95 -- http://www.landtechnik.uni-bonn.de/foerderverein/c.-h.-dencker-ehrennadel/preistraeger-2009/dr.-klaus-j.-lampe I guessed that you might ask such a question. I recall the very first draft of a new strategic plan, developed in 1994, with the title IRRI towards 2050. It was rejected in the committee and by the board because the horizon was seen to be by far too long. Of course, nobody knew if IRRI would exist in 2050. However, in my view, there are five functions, which I stressed at that time and still valid for IRRI in 2050: (1) to house the base collection of the worlds rice germplasm and to perform the many evaluation, research, preservation, and service functions that this responsibility entails; (2) to collect, evaluate, select, and make accessible information on current rice research and development programs, rice and rice-related research, and global rice research resources—human, financial, and physical; (3) to retain a response capability, which can catalyze the use of those resources through internationally recruited teams working on topics of supra-national importance; (4) to organize and convene conferences, task forces, seminars, and meetings to facilitate the exchange of information and to focus the application of knowledge on the resolution of emerging problems; and (5) to define research needs that can be taken care of by existing research centers. worldwide, promote funding, and harmonize the implementation. What we call new frontier or man-on-the-moon projects, such as the 15-ton yield goal, N-fixation of rice, a C4 rice, or a perennial rice plant for the sloping uplands conceptualized in the early 90s, to mention only a few, will take at least 2030 years to mature. Taking those objectives into account, half a century seems to be a realistic thinking horizon for a strategic research center. Given its mandate, IRRIs future, its lifetime, will largely depend on its successful search for excellence in all aspects of its endeavors: excellence in research planning and implementation; excellence in human resource management, cooperation, and collaboration; excellence in efficiency and effectiveness at all levels; and excellence in its financial resource management and not to forget in public awareness, creating a conducive donor-, partner-, client-, target-group relationship. Our world has changed and is still changing dramatically in many aspects. The Millennium Development Goals formulated 10 years ago by the world community have been unrealistic from the very beginning. I must confess that I never believed in them. Given the obvious absence of the political will needed, reducing the present level of extreme poverty by half is closer to an illusion than a realistic goal. Rural areas have been and remain until today neglected worldwide. However, the present global financial and economic crises may serve as a welcome reason to put agriculture and rural development again on the back-burner of political priorities. The price we will have to pay if that happens will be high. Our own community cannot escape from a remarkable share of responsibility for that dilemma. The international and national research community has still to join forces and come forward loud and clear with a strong call for change: from sweet talking to hard decision making and the political will to make it happen: leading the one-third of our globes fellow-inhabitants out of poverty. One is inclined to quote the political question of the day: Yes, we can, but do we want to?

This is just west of Boulder, CO off highway 119. This is very accessible and only a few minute walk from the road. It was taken on January 21, 2009, on my way home from Brainard Lake. In keeping with the office theme I refer to my last employer, who moved me from cubicle to cubicle frequently (Have you seen my stapler?). It is unseasonably warm and had been for a few days, creating mountain runoff.

A new era has dawned for Sri Lanka Tourism! Global Campaign to increase Tourist Arrivals The defeat of terrorism and successful end of war in the country has certainly lifted the spirits of all and sundry. People are beginning to breathe fresh air of tranquility after the guns went silent in the North. The countrys private sector too has seen its confidence being regained and new optimism blossoming. Since last week the nation has seen an unprecedented wave of jubilation and patriotism. There is new hope. All Sri Lankans are eager to embrace a new dawn where Singhalese, Tamil, Muslim, Burgher and all races, religions and creeds unite as one around an undivided island. Despite the conflict, Sri Lanka has continued to remain one of the most attractive travel destinations in the world, being consistently rated by travelers and tourists from around the world as one of the most charming and fascinating places to visit. From the verdant hill country of Kandy and Nuwara Eliya, to the sacred cities of Anuradahapura and Polonnorawua; the lush jungles and rainforests of Yala and Wilpattu to the tranquil beaches of the Southern Coast, Sri Lanka with bite size experiences has something to suit every taste. With the conflict now over, Sri Lanka is looking forward to opening up the North and the East of the country, a hitherto undiscovered part of the island that is teeming with untouched beaches, idyllic villages and cultural treasures galore. The Government has already launched a 180-day rapid development plan for the North with the participation of all ministries. . With the coastlines rebuilt for travelers and plans to develop the North and East of the island, the time is right for Sri Lanka to reap the benefits of tourism. From Arugam Bay the Surfers Paradise, to Batticaloa where many cultures meet, going further up the coast to Trincomalee and Nilaveli, where one finds Sri Lankas most admired and pristine beaches, infra structure development has begun with the hope of attracting more tourists to these areas. For long only accessible only to those who dared to defy caution; today these locations are being developed with heightened interest and expectation of a revival in tourism Meanwhile a massive global communication campaign will be rolled out next month with a focus on attracting more tourists to the island during the winter season. A local island-wide campaign titled MAKING OF THE SMALL MIRACLE was launched this week to draw on the ideas of people in projecting united Sri Lankas image to the world. The campaign is intended to bring out information on special stories, people, places and objects in each of their area enabling Sri Lanka Tourism to share the same with the world. The local campaign will lead to the launch of the new tourism brand scheduled for 23rd June 2009 . Sri Lanka Tourism has come out with a brand new set of communication materials which included new TV commercial, brochures, new internet site, memorabilias and other corporate gifts . Sri Lanka Tourism is hopeful that the new Sri Lanka benefits from its renewed focus in the eyes of the world and attracts the same tourists and travelers alike who have yet to experience the enchanting island. Sri Lanka is looking forward to celebrating a new era in tourism
