APGO Diversity on Council — Message from Council President, Dave Hunt, P.Geo.
APGO
There's been a lot of discussion over the past few years about diversity, or the lack thereof, on the boards of directors of companies and other organizations. Many articles have been written examining why more women and minority groups are not on boards.

Some jurisdictions and organizations have recently imposed diversity quotas on corporate boards. Others, including Ontario, have issued guidelines that require public disclosure and explanation of lack of diversity on boards. Still, others have set worthy targets to be met by some future date.

Researchers found that iron can travel long distances, highlighting the vital role ocean mixing plays in determining whether deep sources of iron reach the surface-dwelling life that need it to survive.

Mining looks to First Nations for future manpower
Timmins Press
Back in the day, spring was the time of year when many Northern prospectors would take some time off and get out of the bush before the snow melted and the creeks and rivers were opened up. Soon enough, they would be heading back in, with fresh supplies, a new tent, a canoe and a packsack full of hope for a new season.

NASA satellite to measure water in Earth's soil sent into orbit
Winnipeg Sun
An unmanned Delta 2 rocket lifted off from California reently carrying a NASA satellite to measure moisture in the top layer of the Earth's soil, data to be used in weather-forecasting and tracking of global climate change. Soil moisture is a variable that binds together all of the planet's environmental systems, scientists say. More precise data will enable forecasters and policy-makers to deal more effectively with drought or flooding in specific regions.

How climate change leads to volcanoes (really)
TIME
Give climate change credit for one thing: it's endlessly versatile. There was a time we called it global warming, which meant what it said: the globe would get warmer. It was only later that we appreciated that a planet running a fever is just like a person running a fever, which is to say it has a whole lot of other symptoms: in this case, droughts, floods, wildfires, habitat disruption, sea level rise, species loss, crop death and more.
