WILD HORSE ROUNDUPS CAUSE DEATH

Amid growing controversy surrounding the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Wild Horse and Burro Program, helicopter roundups in California and Nevada have resulted in the deaths of 64 federally-protected wild horses and burros so far. 

According to the nation’s leading wild horse protection organization, the American Wild Horse Campaign (AWHC), the BLM is targeting 19,000 wild horses and burros for removal from western public lands this year, the most the agency has ever attempted. The agency has already captured well over 15,000 of these animals from their designated habitats. The AWHC asserts that the consequences of the agency’s actions are devastating to individual animals and to the remaining wild herds.

“This year has been deadly for wild horses and burros that live on – or rather used to live on – our western public lands,” said Grace Kuhn, Communications Director for the AWHC. “At roundups, our field representatives are documenting foals collapsing and dying, horses are breaking their necks and limbs, and senior animals are now being euthanized simply for being old.”

“The welfare of the captured wild horses and burros is in jeopardy. They are dying in government holding facilities where disease outbreaks due to BLM-non compliance have killed over 146 captive animals, and they are being sent into the slaughter pipeline through the agency’s disastrous cash incentive adoption program,” Kuhn continued.

The group claims that as the roundups ramp up, the transparency at the operations dwindles. Public observers, there to document and flag animal welfare violations by the BLM contractors, are being kept a mile or more away from the trap sites and often their view is deliberately obscured, through trailers and fencing. 

In the Twin Peaks Herd Management Area roundup outside of Susanville, California, which ended Wednesday, there were been 31 deaths including 11 vulnerable foals, five of whom died suddenly after capture.  

Prior to the start of the summer roundup season, which runs through October, AWHC underscored concerns that chasing foals in the height of the summer heat is a hazardous strategy and the BLM should not initiate roundups while mares are still pregnant and foals are being born. As has been seen in years prior, many foals die of “capture myopathy,” a cause of death that stems from inflicted stress and physical exertion that would typically occur with the prolonged pursuit of wild animals. 

At the Twin Peaks roundup, AWHC field observers documented BLM contractors Sampson Livestock improperly funneling over 100 horses into the trap pens at Twin Peaks, resulting in the collapse of the panels that surrounded the animals, killing two wild horses and endangering its employees. 

In Nevada’s Triple B Complex, 30 miles east of Ely, Nevada, a total of 20 wild horse deaths have been documented since the start of the operation that began on July 15 and is expected to continue through the month. These deaths include 4 foals and two horses who suffered broken necks. 

“It is unconscionable for the BLM to claim that roundups are safe for wild horses, attempting to convince the public these cruel operations are in the animals’ best interests,” continued Kuhn. “Wild horses are safest in the wild, and 64 federally-protected icons would still be alive if not for the BLM continuing to use this outdated and inhumane method of management.”

Kuhn pushed back on the BLM’s claim that horses are overpopulated, citing the BLM’s goal of reducing wild populations to pre-1971 levels, a time when Congress gave federal protections to the animals because they were “fast disappearing” from the American West. She noted that the National Academy of Sciences conducted a nearly two-year long review of the BLM Wild Horse and Burro Program and found that how the agency’s management levels were established, monitored and adjusted is “not transparent to stakeholders, supported by scientific information, or amenable to adaptation with new information and environmental and social change.” 

According to the AWHC, these levels lock in a system in which most of the available forage on the 12% of BLM land where wild horses and burros live is allocated to commercial livestock grazing.

STEVE MARKEL – NGLCC

Listen to Steve Markel on 360 MAG Spotify/Apple podcast HERE.

Steve Markel is the General Manager for the Austin LGBT Chamber of Commerce with 20 years of experience in the events and entertainment industry. Steve now specializes in non-profit management, events, and diversity. Supporting the queer creative economy of Austin is his passion. In his free time, Steve is usually out attending live shows, practicing guitar, or designing new elements for his fashion brand Psychic Cactus.

Before working in the Austin LGBT Chamber of Commerce, Steve worked in the South by Southwest (SXSW), the biggest conglomeration of various conferences and festivals, dedicating itself to helping creative people achieve their goals. As the Senior Account Manager of the event, Steve states that “SXSW is more than a festival. It was a dead start as a way for musicians that didn’t have representation to find either labels or managers or all those of the things that come along in the entertainment industry.” Meanwhile, it paves the way for expanding the influence and exposure of those artists on social media and everywhere. 

After spending about 20 years in the event industry, especially festivals and entertainment, when Covid hit, Steve realized that he needed to make a transition to a position for gathering people and will be able to be around the crowds for those events.Therefore, He decided to apply for the Chamber, one of his old clients, for its opening position: the General Manager.   

According to Steve, the Austin LGBT Chamber of Commerce, which is at its 25th anniversary, holds multiple events all year round for the LGBTQ community. It just produced the biggest event that the Chamber has ever held called “Pride in Local Music,” which featured seven LGBTQ bands from Austin. Besides the celebration of the global pride month in June, the Austin LGBT Chamber of Commerce will celebrate their own pride month, August, with a sing-along of an iconic queer song led by the band. Also, a gala will be held at the end of the year where the Chamber will give out a $5,000 scholarship to students all around the nation who study LGBTQ-related business. 

Steve is passionate about providing a stage for young queer artists and musicians in Austin. By helping them hold their own showcases and establish their own show games, Steve hopes that the Chamber would make those artists prosperous in their field.   

At the same time, to expand the influence of the Austin artists on the internet, the Austin LGBT Chamber of Commerce is grouping with facebook and also with Google called the “Growth Google Business Package.”

Under the immense pressure of modern society, it is easy for people to lose their sense of self-identity. For those people who are having mental health issues and do not know how to love themselves, Steve inspired them by saying, “It’s important to always try to find the light in your life and whatever that light is. You really have to give yourself grace and find something good about yourself.”

To complement Swedish House Mafia’s powerhouse performances, Encore Beach Club and XS Nightclub will enhance its audio-visual production to offer guests an immersive and captivating experience.

About Swedish House Mafia

In 2008, a trio of individual artists, DJs, and producers united to unassumingly break every rule in electronic music. Ensconced in flames, Swedish House Mafia—Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Axwell—infused house music with swaggering hip-hop beat-craft, rock ‘n’ roll attitude, and big screen-worthy grandeur brought to life on stage with one legendary live show after another. Ushering dance music culture out of the warehouses and clubs and into arenas and stadiums on an unrivaled scale, it would be nearly impossible to imagine how the genre might’ve shaken out without them. They became the first electronic act to headline (and sell out) Madison Square Garden in 2011 and the first to grace the main stage at Coachella in 2012. They garnered two consecutive GRAMMY® nominations in the category of “Best Dance Recording” for the platinum “Save the World” in 2012 and quintuple-platinum Hot 100 Top 10 hit “Don’t You Worry Child” in 2013. Rolling Stone described their meteoric rise as “redefining rave culture, and NME christened them “the rockstars of the dance music world.” The marathon record-breaking One Last Tour paved the way for a five-year break before they returned as surprise headliners of Ultra Music Festival’s 20th anniversary in 2018. Following the Save The World Reunion Tour a year later, this holy trinity of electronic music gods focused on the one thing they hadn’t done yet, making their 2022 full-length debut album Paradise Again [Republic Records]. Their return was announced with the cover of Billboard and garnered immediate press and a late-night television performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon followed with a trending hit “A Moth To A Flame” featuring The Weeknd.

What’s New at CES

By: Skyler Johnson

The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, showcased some of the world’s newest technologies, everything from medical devices to self-driving cars. These technologies and the companies behind them vary in size, from startups to massive corporations. They have displayed their newest products, unveiling prototypes for devices that may become essential in just a few years down the road. Here are just a few:

Health Products

The Fasteesh Y-brush, currently a medical device, revolutionizes teeth brushing. Because of the shape, the brush can clean teeth in ten seconds and is three times more effective than a typical toothbrush. Currently, this is being implemented in care facilities and retirement homes.

Japan’s Quantum Operations exhibited the first non-invasive glucose monitor. This changes the way in which diabetes patients measure their glucose and will reduce the repeated pains garnered by needles. The device is worn like a watch, reminiscent of an Apple Watch, and can record glucose levels in the body.

Hapbee’s device, worn like a necklace, influences mood. It uses ultra-low frequency magnetic waves to help the body in both relieving stress and gaining energy. It offers the same benefits as caffeine and melatonin without the harmful effects on the body.

Convenience

If you ever dreaded your alarm clock, Loftie has you covered. Their alarms aid in the process of sleep through implementing breathwork and soundbaths while awake, and white noises and nature sounds while asleep. The two-phase alarm system is designed to both get you out of bed and not leave you irritated through professionally crafted tones.

Ottonomy.io developed robots that allow for both indoor and outdoor deliveries to our doors. A contextual navigation system allows for the robot to safely traverse environments. Because it’s all-electric, the device is more sustainable than traditional delivery methods and is especially worth considering during ongoing supply chain issues and staff shortages.

Urban Canopee fights against the effects of climate change by creating a product that transforms plant life to act as natural umbrellas. The result is cooler urban environments, increased biodiversity, and improved air quality.

Gaming

Perfect for the metaverse, Shiftall creates technology to allow for an all-body VR experience. Not only will users be able to control virtual environments using their hands, but also their feet. The gaming potential with this expansion is limitless.

With the growth of e-sports, Glytch intends to create stadiums for the new sport. The company will open 32 e-sports venues across America and Canada in the next eight years. Each venue will be 90,000 to 120,000 square feet and the home stadium of a different team.

Vehicles

A new winter sport has arrived with the development of the Moonbike. A cross between a snowmobile and a motorcycle, they provide a unique way of traversing the show. They are also fully electric, silent, and much lighter than snowmobiles, helping to keep the mountains snowy for years to come.

CES introduced many sustainable vehicles. The Jeep Wrangler 4xe will be the first hybrid Jeep to enter the market. The Bobcat T7X is the first all-electric compact track loader. There are two new companies that are planning to launch electric vehicles: EdisonFuture and Fisker. The former will release electric solar trucks and delivery vans. The latter displayed the Fisker Karma, an all-electric SUV.

There are also innovations occurring in autonomous driving. Helm develops autonomous vehicles that allow for safer and more efficient autonomous driving for both SUVs and commercial trucks. John Deere announced the release of the first autonomous tractor to help farmers increase yield.

Conclusion

Overall, many exciting new innovations were exhibited during CES. While not all these products will reach a consumer base, it’s exciting to think of the potential benefit these technologies will deliver.
