聖經金句

誰能使我們與基督的愛隔絕呢?難道是患難麼?是困苦麼?是逼迫麼?是飢餓麼?
是赤身露體麼?是危險麼?是刀劍麼?

羅馬書8:35

Black bears may improve panda release methods
3/13/2018

China's giant pandas may be getting a hand from their North American cousins as well as orangutans, tigers and elephants.

The panda population in China is "still very vulnerable", and needs help, according to U.S. researcher Ben Kilham, who will be featured in the new IMAX 3D film Pandas, scheduled for release in April.

The movie was made in cooperation with the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in Southwest China's Sichuan province and directed by Drew Fellman, a producer and writer who previously worked on the documentaries Born to Be Wild (2011) and Island of Lemurs: Madagascar (2014).

Kilham, well known for his work with black bears in his home state of New Hampshire, has been working to see if his success in introducing captive-born black bears into the wild can be applied to pandas in China.

"We have raised and released into the wild about 165 black bear cubs," Kilham said.

Kilham has been doing research on black bears for about 25 years. Giant pandas and black bears are different species of bears but have similar characteristics and behavior patterns.

"They are both large omnivores - which means they eat plants and animals," said Kilham.

One of Kilham's major success stories involves a black bear named Squirty, who came to him when she was just 7 weeks old. Now 22 years old, Squirty "recently gave birth to her 11th litter of cubs in the wild, and I still have access to her", he said.

Kilham presented his work on the introduction of captive-born black bear cubs into the wild several years ago at a conference on the effects of climate change on panda habitat. "This interested the Chinese scientists," he said.

The Chengdu panda center says its researchers were surprised that Kilham had released into the wild as many as 165 black bear cubs and wondered if his experience would be useful with pandas.

But a researcher at the Chengdu center also pointed out the differences between giant pandas and black bears.

Pandas normally do not attack and eat other live animals. There are only reports of pandas feasting on dead animals, said the researcher who asked for anonymity.

Digital photos taken in late 2011 with an infrared camera in a forest in Sichuan's Pingwu county showed a panda eating a leg of a dead adult antelope that had been trapped between rocks in a ravine. The county is near the Baishuijiang Panda Nature Reserve in neighboring Gansu province.

Pandas were meat-eating animals several million years ago. As a result of changes in the environment, they changed their diet and began to eat mainly bamboo.

Before meeting Kilham, Chinese researchers preparing to release pandas had also learned from the experience of others who had reintroduced orangutans, tigers and elephants into the wild.

Those experiences also influenced Kilham's methods with black bears, the researcher added.

朱易 : 馬鞍峰教會的增長及其深遠影響 (1) 
許多前來參加每年一次牧師研討會的牧師感到(2003年人數達到二十五萬之多),他們正經歷著一場由華理克牧師主導的改革運動,他們好像又回到了激動人心的馬丁路德改教運動的時代,不同的是他們可以與領導今天這場改革的領袖相遇和交談。

華理克牧師認為馬丁路德時代的改革是讓教會清楚教會所相信的是什麼,這也是我們今天還在傳講的資訊和教義,而今天的改革是讓教會清楚教會要做什麼


第二次宗教改革的呼聲 
新興教會的運動是教會的第二次宗教改革, 它將徹底改寫教會歷史, 並開創全新的教會時代.

朱易 : 馬鞍峰教會的增長模式和教會市場法的危機 (1) 
除了“目標導向”的增長公式,許多牧師認為華理克牧師還有增長的秘訣,但華理克牧師認為他的增長策略其實是十分簡單,歸納起來只有三條.

不少學者持懷疑的態度, 他們認為“目標導向”不過是將傳統的基督教原則作了不同的包裝。




《断背山》风头正健,价值观江河日下 (1) 
对基督徒而言,这部影片只不过是一个用艺术包装起来的同性恋合理的说教。但这一次,基督徒却无法用忽略它的存在的方式来反击它,他们必须寻找新的方法来坚守传统的战线。


朱易: 他的正面思維影響了全世界 (1) 
但是斯凱勒在教會界配受尊重,除了他在教堂的建造上獨樹一幟外,他的人品和神學上也頗為出色。他是少數幾個沒有醜聞的電視布道家之一,而讓他成為非主流教會和許多基督徒仿效的對象的原因是,他的講道著重正面信息,用正面思維看問題。
