Permaculture: 9am to 10:20 am Super excited to address coffee production sustainability through a permaculture lens. Requests have come in for links to journal articles that I plan to abstract key points from. Below are various articles that I will refer to, and you are invited to delve into/dance/howl with these as much as you are able to before our week 9 Tuesday meeting. Please don’t be limited by these. Follow the suggestion of our faculty librarian liason, Paul McMillin, and use google scholar to quickly find many full text articles that suit your topical interests. You do need to read Shade coffee biodiversity global overview

Reading prompt: Ocean Acidification (OA) is a wide-reaching global phenomenon, just like sea-level rise, overfishing and ocean warming. Our current lives are impacting and impacted by all 4 problems at different intensities and different stages of each threat. Based on the information presented in the paper, (and as a current Washington state resident), how does OA rank in priority among the listed ocean concerns locally for you or your community? How do you compare that local ranking to a priority ranking (assigned by you) for the global ocean concerns? Lastly, consider the question–is there non-monetary value that calcified marine animals might have in your life?
Case Study CAL: Media staff review and peer critique of group websites/eTerm papers in preparation for week 10 presentations. By what criteria do you determine what is the best work of your three group Case Studies to present week ten? Will you present using PowerPoint, Keynote or Prezi? What will you use for audio, which must include both embedded electronic audio and live voices? What are common standards for academic presentations using images, audio and live voice in relationship to your Case Study assignment?
