In this ideal world, illegal activity would quickly be halted. Yet the reality is that many protected areas lack these resources. Updated maps of forest damage can take years to produce, making it difficult to know where to focus limited enforcement efforts. But it doesn't have to be this way, thanks to advances in technology. Rather than hoping forest managers can keep an eye on vast swaths of forest using scarce rangers or expensive high-resolution imagery, they can use GFW and FORMA to quickly highlight areas of interest that can be targeted for more intensive investigation. These systems quickly generate maps of forest loss hotspots. The Terra-i system covering Latin America aims to do the same beyond the official borders of the Brazilian Amazon. But really curbing deforestation in forests around the globe means making data like this available even more widely.

Forest Monitoring for Action FORMA uses satellite data to generate regularly updated online maps and alerts of tropical forest clearing. FORMA is now available for visualization, analysis, and download at GFW, a dynamic online forest monitoring and alert system that empowers people everywhere to better manage forests. CGD has developed the Forest Conservation Performance Rating fCPR system as a set of benchmarks that showcase global progress in reducing forest clearing and that could form the basis for such payments. Fans of tropical forests for clim. How should that money be spent? On my summer vacation in Montana this year, I made my much-anticipated first trip to Glacier National Park. Fortunately, new clearing has declined sharply since then, as the chart of FORMA's global indicator shows below. The effectiveness of forest protection may vary somewhat from quarter to quarter, but not nearly enough to explain such pronounced swings. This paper briefly summarizes how the FORMA tool and the fCPR rating system could provide provide a performance scorecard and an interim performance-based payments scheme for safeguarding forests.
Next generation products will need to provide next level personalization. Facial and image recognition provides next level engagement to users. While AI models can recognize a face, most models need training to recognize different kinds of faces. Voice-enabled applications are not just "nice to have" additions to your existing customer-facing sales channels. They are an entirely new way to engage and retain customers that will maintain profitable sales growth beyond the next wave of technological disruption. Customers are more demanding than ever. Apps that are able to provide recommendations based on a users's location and interests will have the edge over their competition. Smart recommendations achieve 'stickiness' and brand loyalty.
There is no way out, either I need to continue to sacrifice myself or get out of this relationship. Their thinking is something like this. Its always for his prior commitment that we always end up cancelling our plan of being together.
