Thu 27 Jun 2019 10.30 am     Thursday Discussion Group     How can we feed 11 billion people?

Details The world’s population is set to grow from 7.7 to 11 billion by the end of this century. The challenge is to produce enough food to feed this number of people. In the 1960s the Green Revolution provided answers to similar problems – but the projected population growth of the future is on a much greater scale than before, and so new measures are required. In east Africa they’re working to reduce the amount of food that’s lost before it even gets to market – globally this stands at around 30 per cent. In the United States scientists are working to improve the natural process of photosynthesis – to make plants themselves function more efficiently. And in India they’re working to preserve genetic diversity – conserving rice varieties that can flourish in salt water or in conditions of drought.

At this meeting the group will listen to and discuss the views of :
  • Dr. Andy Jarvis - Director of the Decision and Policy Analysis Area in the International Centre for Tropical Agriculture, based in Cali, Colombia.
  • Dr. Jane Ambuko - A Senior Lecturer at the University of Nairobi, Kenya.
  • Dr. Amanda Cavanagh - A postdoctoral researcher at the University of Illinois.
  • Dr. Debal Deb – India’s “Rice Warrior”. He founded Vrihi, which is India's largest non-governmental rice seed bank.

Wed 10 Jul 2019 9.00 am     Open meeting     SS great Britain

Details A trip has been organised to visit the SS Great Britain in Bristol.
The coach will depart from the steps of the National Museum in Cathays Park at 9:00 am.
The SS Great Britain is over 170 years old and a masterpiece of engineering. The ship is beautifully restored and the maintained ship is fully accessible. You can explore from first class to steerage and from engine room to yard-arm. There are plenty of places nearby to eat and drink. The price, including coach travel and entry to the ship, is £20, but if you want to visit Bristol instead of the ship, the cost is just £10. The return departure from Bristol will be mid-afternoon.
Please book before Wednesday 19th June, by sending a cheque (payable to ‘Cardiff U3A’) for £10 or £20 per person to Frank McLean, 49 Parc y Coed, Creigiau, Cardiff CF15 9LY.

Details Blaenavon World Heritage Site This will be an earlier start and a bit later than normal finish. We will visit the Blaenavon World Heritage Center and the World Heritage Ironwork's site, which is free entry to us via the CADW education scheme. Within the site we will visit the refurbished cottages and recreated company truck shop; new cutting-edge audio post technology helps bring the story of Blaenavon Ironworks to life like never before. Over two hundred years ago, a different form of cutting-edge technology enabled the power of steam to be harnessed, making Blaenavon possible and taking Wales’s industrial might to a new height. Lunch will be at the Lion Hotel in Blaenavon.

Thu 11 Jul 2019 10.30 am     Thursday Discussion Group     Why has the Kashmir crisis lasted so long?

Details In February this year a bomb blast killed at least 40 Indian paramilitary police officers in Kashmir; the worst attack by Pakistani militants in years. Indian military jets were deployed and one was shot down. As concerns over the pilot’s fate grew, fears mounted that India and Pakistan might go to war over Kashmir – again. The countries have been at war four times since partition in 1947. And Kashmir, which both countries claim in entirety but each one controls only in part, has been a key factor in the conflicts. But even when there is no war, there is no stable peace in Kashmir. Violent protests and street fighting are commonplace and daily life is made hard in numerous other ways. Unemployment is high, communication blackouts frequent and security fears constant. At this meeting, we consider why the crisis has been so difficult to solve and what it might take for a resolution to emerge.

At each meeting it was suggested that we have a few (maybe 5) queries from members – either to identify plants (or maybe decide whether it is a weed). Email me a photograph and I’ll take the first five for this meeting.

Thu 14 Nov 2019 8.30 am     Bus Pass Thursday     Swansea DATE MAY CHANGE

Details Swansea is our destination with its famous indoor market and of course we will take coffee at the last remaining Kardoma Cafe complete with 1960 decor and waitresses wearing aprons. Lunch is likely to be at the Meridian Tower famous for its vertigo inducing views over Swansea and Swansea bay. Among the places to visit are of course the Waterfront, Swansea museum, Dylan Thomas centre, the Egypt centre and the National Waterfront Welsh Industrial museum. Plenty to do then!Lunch will be at the Meridian Tower.

Thu 12 Dec 2019 9.30 am     Bus Pass Thursday     Bristol, by train DATE MAY CHANGE

Details Our now established December train trip is to Bristol and we get a group rate for the train with reserved seats both ways.. We have of course travelled there using a bus but getting there by train gives us a lot more time to eat, drink and visit Bristol's many attractions. Numbers are likely to be strictly limited.
