  • Interesting knowledge from your profession

    Saw this on another forum and it was a great thread: What sort of knowledge do you have that may not be commonly known to the general populace due to work duties?

    I am a forester so there isn't a lot of really shocking news to the public, but I can say I have seen first hand how one spotted owl bird has cost the public a few hundred thousand dollars to attempt to preserve. These guys get expensive fast when you start throwing out timber sales that are already marked up for removal.

    Eco activists try to "preserve" a lot of US forests... when successful they aim to designate habitat for endangered species to go sort of un-managed. Well, when the wood demand is not met with our (USA) own timber supply, we import from other countries without such strong government regulation... this often results in the removal of exotic rain forests and sensitive habitat over seas. Forestry should be left to the professionals and practiced as a crop. Think of production trees as a very large tomatoes to a farmer.

    Currently the Fish and Wildlife service are testing treatments to preserve the spotted owl's habitat by removing another competing species of owl via shotgun treatment. Read up on it here: http://earthfix.kcts9.org/flora-and-...d-owl-habitat/

    Really interesting stuff...

    Approximately 22% of the children in the US live in poverty.

    Just over 20% of households with children reported food insecurity compared to just under 12% of households without children.

              women never ever look as good in person as they do on TV or in Magazines. Make-Up, Spanx and Photoshop make a world of difference.

                Illegal income is taxable, and is required to be reported on a tax return.

                  This aint no secret but people live in forclosed homes months after they have been forclosed on. Actually kinda sad to see all the kids toys in the yard when they are technically homeless.

                          Medicare will not cover the cost of cataract surgery unless you are unable to read the top line of this eye chart...... WITH CORRECTIVE LENSES.

                              JHA is not a fool-proof system created by OSHA.

                              Furthermore, a JHA analysis is a pain in the ass!!!
