Drilling Vessel Chikyu to Embark on Its Inaugural Scientific Research Expedition
Scientists will begin exploring the origins of earthquakes at their source with the launch of the Nankai Trough Seismogenic Zone Experiment (NanTroSEIZE). On September 21st, the Japanese drilling vessel Chikyu will depart from Shingu Port with scientists aboard, ready to log, drill, sample, and install monitoring instrumentation in one of the most active earthquake zones on Earth. Situated off Japan's southwest coast, the Nankai Trough has generated large-scale earthquakes and tsunamis for millions of years.
The vessel's launch starts the first of a series of scientific drilling expeditions that will retrieve geological samples and provide scientific data from the Nankai Trough fault zone for the first time. One important goal is to eventually place long-term monitoring instruments in the fault zone to aid scientists in understanding what processes occur beneath the sea floor before earthquakes are generated. Such new insights could lead to early warning systems for people on land.
The current NanTroSEIZE expedition is led by Co-Chief Scientist Harold Tobin, a marine geologist on the faculty of University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Co-Chief Scientist Masa Kinoshita, a marine geophysicist at the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology. The NanTroSEIZE expeditions are supported by the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP), an international marine research program led by Japan and the United States, with additional support from a consortium of European countries, the People's Republic of China, and South Korea.
Global Sustainability Leader Ceres Joins OpenEco.org Community, Which Features First-Ever Tool For Calculating and Comparing GHG Emissions Data
Drawing on its history of building online communities, Sun Microsystems (NASDAQ: JAVA) today launched OpenEco.org, a new community to help organizations calculate, compare, and reduce green house gas (GHG) emissions. OpenEco.org is free and open to all organizations. The only cost of admission is sharing data, transparently or anonymously, with other community participants. Sun will publicly introduce OpenEco.org today at an event the company is sponsoring with the Carbon Disclosure Project featuring President Bill Clinton in New York.
In the age of social networks such as Facebook and MySpace, OpenEco.org provides a community for organizations to address climate change together. OpenEco.org fills an important need as companies, government institutions and non-governmental organizations are facing increasing pressure to set improvement goals and invest in projects to meet them. Increasingly, GHG analysis is done with home-grown or proprietary tools and often requires significant internal resources or expensive consulting services. With OpenEco.org, carbon accounting data that might ordinarily remain in a company's spreadsheet can be easily shared using the site's unique GHG emissions tool.1 The tool enables organizations of all kinds to benchmark against one another, set realistic reduction goals and share best practices to meet them.

Campaign features dynamic website that allows children to discover new ways to enjoy reading with literary and interactive games
The Advertising Council and the Library of Congress announced today the launch of a new series of public service advertisements (PSAs) developed to inspire young people to "explore new worlds" through reading and to promote literacy in all types of learning, including books, periodicals and cartoons.
The new PSAs, created pro bono by The Geppetto Group, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment and the Brigham Young University (BYU) Ad Lab, are based on classical fiction books The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and the The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, as well as stories of King Arthur and the Round Table. The Geppetto Group produced Oz, the original spot, and created the campaign tagline "Explore New Worlds," which encouraged the other two volunteer agencies to create inspirational endings from other classic works of fiction. The PSAs aim to inspire children in grades 4 to 6 to get more enjoyment out of reading and thereby inspire them to become lifelong learners.

Keri Russell Shares Personal Experience about Protecting Kids from a Deadly but Vaccine Preventable Disease
Parents of Kids with Infectious Diseases (PKIDs) today announced the launch of its national educational campaign "Silence the Sounds of Pertussis" with actress and new mom Keri Russell.
The campaign sounds the alarm about the dangers of pertussis and alerts parents to the need for everyone coming into close contact with young babies, especially family members, to be vaccinated against pertussis to prevent transmission of the disease. On the rise, pertussis is a highly contagious and potentially deadly bacterial infection that is particularly dangerous for babies.
