World’s big­gest cof­fee morn­ing

The Oban Times - - Feature -

MSP MICHAEL Rus­sell is call­ing on peo­ple in Ar­gyll and Bute to help raise money for a can­cer char­ity - by drink­ing cof­fee and eat­ing cake.

Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port’s ‘world’s big­gest cof­fee morn­ing’ is cel­e­brat­ing its 25th birth­day this year so the char­ity hopes the 2015 event will be the big­gest ever with events tak­ing place across Scot­land on Septem­ber 25.

Mr Rus­sell said: ‘ Macmil­lan want to make sure no one has to face can­cer alone but they can’t do it with­out the amaz­ing peo­ple who take part in the cof­fee morn­ing ev­ery Septem­ber.’

Marine life on the move say ex­perts

SCI­EN­TISTS at Dun­staffnage’s Scot­tish As­so­ci­a­tion for Marine Science have mod­elled data for nearly 13,000 marine species and found that by the end of this cen­tury, coun­tries ei­ther side of the Trop­ics will have a greater va­ri­ety of marine species.

Trop­i­cal marine an­i­mals that cur­rently thrive in warm habi­tats around the equa­tor will have to spread north and south to avoid ex­tinc­tion as global sea tem­per­a­tures rise, a study has found, with the Trop­ics suf­fer­ing a nett loss.

The study, pub­lished in the jour­nal Na­ture Cli­mate Change, is based on global cli­mate mod­els and is the most com­pre­hen­sive to date on ex­pected shifts in marine an­i­mal pop­u­la­tions.
