Forest fires have been big news in Indonesia for many years. The smoke and environmental
destruction caused by these fires has hit the headlines in newspapers and on television
throughout Asia as well. It is a huge problem that requires serious attention. BIOMA, a
local NGO based in Samarinda has been working together with villagers from 12 ethnic
groups in community-based forest management and control programs. They have been
investigating how traditional methods of fire fighting can be used to lessen the threat of
such fires in future and help cope with outbreaks of fire if they occur. They have been
successful with communities in strengthening local institutions responsible for forest fire
problems. This program also assisted with developing better cooperation between the stakeholders – the local government and the villagers. AusID and the Australian embassy are providing financial assistance to BIOMA while staff members including Pak Pajar and Pak Irawan work together with the forest communities.

Mice may be the culprits behind an epidemic of childhood allergies being seen by doctors
in the United States, research at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institution in Baltimore

The team found that 95 percent of all homes examined in two New York districts and
six other United States cities had evidence of mice in at least one room.

In Baltimore, allergy triggers in the form of mouse urine and skin flakes were found
in every single home visited. Eighteen percent of the children in these homes were allergic
to mice and these tended to have a more severe form of asthma.

The team took samples from homes in the Bronx and East Harlem, both in New York,
as well as in Washington DC, St. Louis, Baltimore, Chicago, Cleveland, and Detroit.

For a long time mice were not suspected of triggering allergies in the home. “Now we

important in inner-city asthma than cats, dogs, or dust mites,” said Dr. Robert Wood of
Johns Hopkins.
