A real-time dive on active hydrothermal vents ArchiMer
Sarrazin, Jozee; Sarradin, Pierre-marie; Buffier, Erick; Christophe, Alain; Clodic, Guillaume; Desbruyeres, Damien; Fouquet, Yves; Gouillou, Michel; Jannez, Michel; Le Fur, Yann; Le Rest, Jacques; Lecornu, Fabrice; Lefort, Olivier; Lux, Stephanie; Millet, Brigitte; Guillemet, Pascal.
The Momareto cruise was held from August 6 to September 6, 2006 on the new French oceanographic vessel Pourquoi pas? The ROV Victor 6000 visited three vent fields, ranging from 850m to 2300m, on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. The scientific objective of the cruise was to study the spatial and temporal dynamics of hydrothermal communities colonizing these active vent sites. Aside scientific and technological objectives, one of the major goals of this cruise was to share the excitement of our science with the public. For this, the results of the project were shared through different media. The most challenging and exciting communication event remains the real-time transmission of images acquired by the ROV Victor at 1700m depth to a 250 person audience on land.

Environmental problems caused by human activities are increasing; biodiversity is disappearing at an unprecedented rate, soils are being irreversibly damaged, freshwater is increasingly in short supply, and the climate is changing. To reverse or even to reduce these trends will require a radical transformation in the relationship between humans and the natural environment. Just how this can be achieved within, at most, a few decades is unknown, but it is clear that academia must play a crucial role. Many believe, however, that academic institutions need to become more effective in helping societies move toward sustainability. We first synthesize current thinking about this crisis of research effectiveness. We argue that those involved in producing...

Financial and Risk Management Assistance: Decision Support for Agriculture AgEcon
Klose, Steven L.; Outlaw, Joe L..
The Financial and Risk Management (FARM) Assistance program created by Texas Cooperative Extension is a strategic analysis service offered to farmers and ranchers in Texas. The program serves as an example of large-scale, focused programming by extension agencies, as well as the implementation of technical stochastic simulation methods for use on the farm.

Improving Food Security in Africa: Highlights of 25 Years of Research, Capacity-Building, and Outreach. AgEcon
Food Security Group at Michigan State University.
Decades of research have led to substantially improved understanding of the nature of food insecurity. A combination of economic growth and targeted programs resulted in a steady fall (until the food crisis of 2007/08) in the percentage of the world’s population suffering from undernutrition (from 20% in 1990/92 to 16% in 2006). Yet over a billion people still face both chronic and/or transitory food insecurity due to long-standing problems of inadequate income, low-productivity in agricultural production and marketing, and related problems of poor health and absence of clean water. Assuring adequate food security for such a large share of the world’s population is increasingly challenging due to continuing resource degradation driven by a combination of...

Lessons Learned from 25 Years of Food Security Research, Capacity-Building, and Outreach. AgEcon

Decades of research have led to substantially improved understanding of the nature of food insecurity. Until the food crisis of 2007/08, a combination of economic growth and targeted programs resulted in a steady fall in the percentage of the world’s population suffering from under-nutrition (from 20% in 1990/92 to 16% in 2006). Yet over a billion people still face both chronic and/or transitory food insecurity due to long-standing problems of inadequate income, low-productivity in agricultural production and marketing, and related problems of poor health and absence of clean water. Among regions of the world, the greatest number of the food insecure lives in South Asia, while Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) has the highest proportion of population that is food...

Preference for Risk Management Information Sources: Implications for Extension and Outreach Programming AgEcon
Rejesus, Roderick M.; Knight, Thomas O.; Jaramillo, Mauricio; Coble, Keith H.; Patrick, George F.; Baquet, Alan E..
This article examines farmers’ preferences for various risk management information sources. Our results suggest that information from risk management experts, in-depth materials studied on their own, and popular press outlets tend to be preferred and are ranked highly by producers. Using a regression model to investigate farmer/farm attributes that affect preference for a particular risk management information source, we find that younger farmers with college education, higher leverage, assets greater than $1 million, risk-loving attitudes, and who have used professional services (marketing consultants) tend to prefer information from risk management experts, the Internet, and marketing clubs/other producers. On the other hand, producers who prefer...

Teaching and Learning Through Cooperative Research Ventures AgEcon
Lindsey, Patricia J..
Classroom-based learning can be enhanced for advanced agricultural economics and agribusiness undergraduate students by engaging them as partners in an applied research project. The approach described combines research, outreach and resident instruction in a single activity that produces and extends knowledge while educating students. Many of the changes suggested for agricultural, agricultural economics and agribusiness instruction are encompassed by this approach.

The Role of Media Outreach and Program Modernization in the Growth of the SNAP Caseload AgEcon
Dickert-Conlin, Stacy; Fitzpatrick, Katie; Tiehen, Laura.
This research seeks to understand the role of information, in the form of media campaigns, and changes in transaction costs, in the form of online applications and call centers, in the growth in county-level SNAP caseloads. We find that SNAP radio advertisements are associated with a small increase in the SNAP caseload, though the magnitude of the estimates are sensitive to the econometric specification. The SNAP television ads, which were run only in 2006, are negatively correlated with caseloads. We find evidence of endogeneity in the placement of the advertising campaigns, leading to a positive bias in the estimated effect of the radio ad campaigns and a negative bias in the estimated effect of the TV ad campaigns. We also find the modernization...
