On Tuesday 18th February 2020, at London Fashion Week, Rosh Mahtani of Alighieri, will be presented with The Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design by Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen. Mahtani will be recognised for the craftmanship of her jewellery which is produced in Hatton Garden, for using responsibly sourced materials, promoting local manufacturing and supporting employment.

The Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design was initiated in recognition of the role the fashion industry plays in society and diplomacy and the movement of young designers that are both talented and making a difference to society through either sustainable practices or community engagement. The inaugural Award was announced and presented to Richard Quinn in February 2018 when The Queen made Her Majesty’s first visit to London Fashion Week. In 2019, the prestigious Award was presented to Bethany Williams by The Duchess of Cornwall. With sustainability and ethical practice always at the heart of the design process, this year’s recipient has been chosen for her unique attention to detail and focus on craftsmanship and community.
Born in London and raised in Zambia, the founder of Alighieri, Rosh Mahtani, studied French and Italian at Oxford University. Upon graduating in 2012, Mahtani was inspired to create Modern Heirlooms, born from the literature she had studied such as Dante Alighieri’s The Divine Comedy in particular. With no formal training, and a vehement obsession with the idea of imperfect sculptures, Alighieri was officially launched in 2014.
Alighieri has become known for its hand-made gold-plated antique-style designs. Each piece of jewellery is handcrafted in Hatton Garden, London’s Jewellery Quarter. The unique pieces are made through the process of lost-wax casting at some of the oldest local suppliers. The brand is firmly rooted in literature and travel and each biannual new collection is based on a different aspect of The Divine Comedy. Just like Dante Alighieri’s subjects, each piece of jewellery is unique, battered and imperfect. People and narrative remain at the heart of the brand; Alighieri has created a community through objects, forged friendships across all cultures through this universal language and celebrated the fact that it’s acceptable to be vulnerable and imperfect.
Each year a designer is selected by the BFC, in collaboration with the Royal Household, to be recognised by this Award. The Award, designed by Angela Kelly, inspired by The Queen Elizabeth rose, has been hand-produced by Lucy Price at Bauhinia Studios and in Birmingham's famous jewellery quarter.
The Princess Royal is President of the UK Fashion & Textile Association (UKFT), a sister organisation to the BFC and lead for industry skills development, making Her Royal Highness’ role this year significant by recognising a young business supporting craft and jewellery making in London.
The generosity and commitment of our sponsors, suppliers and supporters is more vital than ever. Please help us by acknowledging their support for London Fashion Week February 2020: Official Partners: Evening Standard, JD.COM, INC., LAVAZZA, LetsBab, The Store X, Mercedes-Benz, The May Fair Hotel, TONI&GUY and Official Suppliers: Bags of Ethics, DHL, Fashion and Beauty Monitor, Getty Images, Launchmetrics and S by sloggi and our Official Supporters: The Department for International Trade, The European Regional Development Fund and The Mayor of London.

‘MEGA MACHINES’ RETURNS TO SCIENCE CHANNEL REVEALING THE HIDDEN TECHNOLOGY BEHIND THE GREATEST ENGINEERING FEATS

Premieres Wednesday, February 26 at 9 PM ET/PT on Science Channel

These machines defy belief. They master the tasks that humans cannot. Today’s mega machines – from bullet trains to cargo planes – have transformed our understanding of modern-day engineering and our daily lives. In an all-new season of MEGA MACHINES, premiering Wednesday, February 26 at 9 PM ET/PT on Science Channel, viewers will go inside these iconic machines to uncover the hidden secrets of how they work, how they were built and just how far they’ve evolved.

These aren’t your ordinary machines. Throughout the season, experts will reveal the secrets and technology that has made these machines the most advanced of their kind. How does a high-speed catamaran become the fastest passenger ship in the world? And how can it transport 1,000 passengers and 150 cars at speeds over 65 mph?

Back on land, MEGA MACHINES looks to the remote Norwegian wilderness and the TRAXX F1, considered the world’s toughest and most powerful electric freight train, responsible for hauling million-dollar lumber loads against the clock. But these aren’t the only incredible machines in existence. MEGA MACHINES also spotlights the groundbreaking Seraph flying car, a unique passenger craft based on 12 rotor drone technology that could revolutionize the way we all travel. Viewers will get an inside look at the technology behind the ‘Beluga’ mega-plane – named after the white Arctic whale due to its bulging nose. It has a massive wingspan which can hold enough fuel to fill the gas tanks of 2,500 family cars. The aviation world is also dominated by the K-Max helicopter, which can carry loads weighing more than 2 tons.

Transforming our understanding of the machines around us, MEGA MACHINES offers a never before seen look at these unbelieve feats of engineering and the people who made them possible.

MEGA MACHINES is produced for Science Channel by Windfall Films. For Windfall Films, series producer is Mark Bridge, executive producer is Carlo Massarella. For Science Channel, Gretchen Eisele is executive producer and Ted Levin is production coordinator.

#SmallScreenScenes THE LITTLE PLANET THAT COULD: NEW DISCOVERY CHANNEL SPECIAL #TEAMPLUTO SPOTLIGHTS CONTROVERSY OF THE PLANET AND 90TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS

Premieres February 18 on Discovery Channel

In 1930, Clyde Tombaugh of Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona discovered Pluto, a planet that would become the ninth and smallest in our solar system. Then in 2006, on the last day of the annual International Astronomical Union conference in Prague, everything changed. In a decision riddled with controversy, Pluto was officially reclassified as a dwarf planet.

So what led to Pluto’s abrupt reclassification? What criteria had suddenly changed for the scientific community to now classify it as a dwarf planet? And could the continued outcry from thousands around the world help reinstate Pluto’s planetary status nearly a century after its discovery?

In celebration of the 90th anniversary of Pluto’s discovery on February 18th, #TeamPluto, a new Discovery Channel special, seeks to answer these questions and more as it follows YouTube star and television host Nick Uhas alongside a team of esteemed astronomers, scientists and historians on the quest to understand this fierce fascination with Pluto’s planetary standing. Weighing both the scientific and social importance of this small but mighty force, #TeamPluto deep dives into Pluto’s strange history, from its discovery 90 years ago to the subsequent years of controversy that would besiege this little planet that could.

#TeamPluto premieres Tuesday, February 18th at 11pm ET/PT on Discovery and Discovery Go. Viewers can also catch the mini-documentary when it premieres Saturday, February 22nd at 11pm ET/PT on Science Channel and Science Go.

“Pluto’s upcoming 90th anniversary is the perfect time to dig in and tell the true story of this often mis-understood planet,” said Scott Lewers, EVP Multiplatform Programming Discovery Factual & Head of Content, Science. “At its core, Discovery’s mission is to further and better our understanding of science, exploration, and the human condition through storytelling, and in this special program, Pluto will receive our full attention.”

As a result of a unique and timely partnership with Lowell Observatory, Discovery also gives viewers unprecedented access throughout #TeamPluto to the observatory, the very place where Tombaugh first discovered Pluto nearly a century ago.

“We are honored to partner with Discovery on this special program that celebrates Pluto and its discovery at Lowell Observatory 90 years ago,” said Danielle Adams, Lowell Observatory’s Deputy Director for Marketing & Communications. “From the search for Planet X that was initiated by Percival Lowell to current research from the New Horizons spacecraft that flew by Pluto in 2015, viewers will get an inside look at the processes that lead to scientific discovery.”

People will be able to make their voice heard and cast a vote if they think Pluto is a planet. Audiences can visit the official poll on Discovery’s Facebook page and express what they think in the comments.

#TeamPluto is produced for Discovery Channel by Discovery Studios with Sandy Jarrell and Suzanne Rauscher as executive producers and Brian Leff as co-executive producer/showrunner. For Discovery Channel, executive producers are Scott Lewers, Kristen Variola, and Christina Bavetta and Joe Mazzeo is coordinating producer.

#NHLPeachy #RepêchageLNH #NHLDraft #CanadaPeachy @NHL @CanadiensMTL NHL and Montreal Canadiens Unveil 2020 NHL Draft Logo

The National Hockey League® and Montreal Canadiens® today unveiled the 2020 NHL Draft™ logo.

The 2020 NHL Draft logo is in red, white and blue -- the iconic colors of the Canadiens. It features a torch, which pays homage to the team motto “To you from failing hands we throw the torch; be yours to hold it high,” a verse that has adorned the Canadiens dressing room since 1952-53 and comes from “In Flanders Fields,” a World War I poem written by Canadian Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae after the death of a friend in combat. The torch also celebrates the history of the Canadiens, the Drafts the city Montreal has hosted and the bright futures of the prospects who will be selected at Bell Centre in June.


The 2020 NHL Draft will be held over two days – Friday, June 26 (Round 1) and Saturday, June 27 (Rounds 2-7). NHL club executives, scouts and coaches will be present on the NHL Draft floor while thousands of fans and hundreds of print, television and radio media are expected to attend. The 2020 event will mark the 27th time the City of Montreal will host the NHL Draft, and the first time since 2009. The NHL Draft was conducted in various Montreal hotels, the League office in Montreal, as well as the historic Montreal Forum from 1963-1984. The event was held outside Montreal for the first time at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in 1985. Montreal again hosted the Draft in 1986, 1988, 1992 and 2009.



Additional details about the 2020 NHL Draft will be announced at a later date, fans can learn more at canadiens.com/draft. For historical information and past draft selections, visit records.nhl.com. NHL Network and NHL.com will provide extensive coverage live from the event leading up to and after the 2020 NHL Draft.

La Ligue nationale de hockeyMD et les Canadiens de MontréalMD ont dévoilé aujourd'hui le logo du Repêchage de la LNHMC 2020.

Le logo du Repêchage de la LNH 2020 est bleu, blanc et rouge, soit les légendaires couleurs des Canadiens. Il met de l'avant un flambeau, qui rend hommage à la devise de l'équipe : « Nos bras meurtris vous tendent le flambeau, à vous toujours de le porter bien haut », qui est une phrase qui orne le vestiaire des Canadiens depuis 1952-1953 et qui est tirée du poème « Au champ d'honneur » (In Flanders Field), rédigé pendant la Première Guerre mondiale par John McCrae, un officier de l'armée qui était aussi médecin et poète. Le flambeau célèbre aussi l'histoire des Canadiens, les repêchages que Montréal a accueillis et l'avenir brillant des espoirs qui seront sélectionnés au mois de juin prochain au Centre Bell. 



Le repêchage de la LNH 2020 se déroulera sur deux jours, soit le vendredi 26 juin (première ronde) et le samedi 27 juin (de la deuxième à la septième ronde). Les dirigeants, dépisteurs et entraîneurs des clubs de la LNH seront sur place, sur le plancher du Repêchage de la LNH, tandis que des milliers de partisans et des centaines de représentants des médias écrits, de la télé et de la radio sont attendus. La séance de 2020 représentera la 27e fois que la Ville de Montréal accueillera le Repêchage de la LNH, et la première fois depuis 2009. Le Repêchage de la LNH a eu lieu dans différents hôtels montréalais, au bureau de la Ligue à Montréal, ainsi qu'à l'historique Forum de Montréal de 1963 à 1984. Cet événement s'est déroulé ailleurs qu'à Montréal pour la première fois en 1985, soit au Palais des congrès du Toronto métropolitain. Montréal a de nouveau accueilli le Repêchage en 1986, 1988, 1992 et 2009.



D’autres détails à propos du Repêchage 2020 de la LNH seront annoncés prochainement. Les partisans peuvent s’abonner pour recevoir les toutes dernières nouvelles à l’adresse canadiens.com/repechage.

#CulturedPeachy #LondonPeachy @NationalGallery #Sin Open to public: Wednesday 15 April 2020




15 April – 5 July 2020 

Room 1

Admission free

The first exhibition in the UK exploring sin in art will be staged at the National Gallery this spring.

Sin will bring together paintings from the National Gallery’s collection dating from the 16th to the 18th century with loans from important private and public collections including modern and contemporary works by Andy Warhol, Tracey Emin, and Ron Mueck. There will be 15 works on display.

Sin has been a recurrent subject for artistic exploration over the centuries across the world. Sin in a religious context means an immoral act that is considered to be a transgression against divine law. In a secular world, it means a serious or regrettable fault, offence or omission. Sin is as universal as it is personal. Most people at some point in their life will do something they regret, although the gravity of their ‘sin’ and the way each individual or society deals with it very much depends on the country, time and socio-cultural context. While the concerns, ambiguities, perceptions and representations of sin extend across world religions and even to those of no faith, Sin will primarily explore this conception in Christianity and through the work of artists who work principally within a Christian context. 

Two early paintings in the exhibition, The Garden of Eden by Jan Brueghel the Elder, 1613 (on loan from a private collection, Hong Kong) and Adam and Eve by Lucas Cranach the Elder, 1526 (on loan from The Samuel Courtauld Trust, The Courtauld Gallery, London) feature scenes from the Old Testament which have helped define the concept of sin in our collective ‘Western’ consciousness: the moment described in the Book of Genesis when Adam and Eve eat the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge and are subsequently expelled from the Garden of Eden for committing the first sin. Both pictures are ambiguous as they tell and warn the viewer about sin and yet portray the naked body as seductive, which could possibly inspire sin. 

Many artists over the centuries have sought to depict the seven deadly sins (pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath and sloth), the group of sins defined as the worst by the sixth-century pope, Gregory I (Saint Gregory the Great). 

The 18th-century British painter William Hogarth was a master at depicting sinful behaviour. In his Marriage A-la-Mode series, and in particular in The Tête à Tête, about 1743 (the National Gallery, London), he shows a young ‘couple of convenience’, sprawled slothfully in their Palladian London townhouse. The wife has tea for one, an indication of the separate life she leads from her husband. The husband, meanwhile, does not even try to hide his mistress’s cap as it falls out of his pocket, attracting the attention of his curious dog. A large black spot on his neck denotes he has caught syphilis, presumably from his mistress.

While many paintings depict sinful behaviour, some portray people who were regarded as being without sin, notably the Virgin Mary, the mother of God’s son Jesus. Her purity is equated with her beauty in Diego Velázquez’s Immaculate Conception, 1618–19 (the National Gallery, London).

Other paintings show acts of redemption, atonement and confession: the options available to cancel out sin. Few artists have addressed repentance as directly as Andy Warhol did in some of his last paintings, based on leaflets distributed in the streets of New York Repent, and Sin No More! (Positive and Negative), 1985-–6 (Ed Freedman, Los Angeles, CA, USA). 

Some works in the exhibition shed light on the power of confession, either to free oneself from the burden of sin or to obtain forgiveness. The Mass of Saint Giles, about 1500 (the National Gallery, London) shows the Holy Roman Emperor Charlemagne kneeling in front of Saint Giles, whose prayers of intercession to God led to the absolution of the Emperor from his sins. Tracey Emin’s neon work It was just a kiss, 2010 (Exhibition Copy, Courtesy of the Artist and White Cube) could be considered an open-ended and ambiguous secular confession.

A painting entitled The Scapegoat by William Holman Hunt (1854–5, Manchester Art Gallery) explores another solution to get rid of sin: the idea of blaming someone for the faults of others. The origin of the theme is found in the Old Testament Book of Leviticus. Christians believe that Christ’s death on the cross, as the ultimate scapegoat, atoned for humankind’s sins once and for all.

Youth, 2009 (Courtesy the artist) a sculpture by Ron Mueck, invites us, on leaving the exhibition, to continue to reflect on the enduring and universal nature of sin. Youth is ostensibly a victim of a stabbing, but asks more questions than it answers. It evokes the image of Christ showing his sacrificial wound to Saint Thomas the Apostle, and prompts us to ask whether the youth has committed a sin or if instead he is a victim of someone else’s sins? Is he a scapegoat, or indeed another ‘Christ’? 

Sin will also include paintings by Jan Gossaert, Jan Steen, Bronzino, and the Gallery’s recently acquired Venus and Cupid (1529) by Lucas Cranach the Elder. 

Dr Joost Joustra, The Howard and Roberta Ahmanson Fellow in Art and Religion, said: "Sin invites visitors to reflect on a fundamental concept that pervades our lives and history, but also to marvel at the ingenious ways artists have addressed the subject across time."

Dr Gabriele Finaldi, Director of the National Gallery, says: "Sin is a deadly serious subject and artists over the centuries have treated it with imagination and inventiveness. This small exhibition packs a big punch and will, I hope, lead to much discussion and reflection on the meaning and imagery of sin.”

#ChampagneWishes #SmallScreenScenes May The Best Booze Win! New Discovery Channel Series ‘MASTER DISTILLER’ Premieres March 3

Three competitors. Three judges. One winning spirit. In an all-new Discovery Channel series, MASTER DISTILLER, America’s top legal and outlaw distillers go head to head in the ultimate booze-making competition to see who has what it takes to join the ranks of the greats and win the title of Master Distiller.

The all-new series, MASTER DISTILLER, premieres Tuesday, March 3 at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel after an all-new episode of MOONSHINERS at 9pm ET/PT.

Across the country, distillers carry on a centuries old tradition. While some operate on the legal side, others perfect their craft in the shadows and beyond the reach of the law. Now, these diverse distillers will compete to earn their place in liquor-making history.

Judged by three legendary Moonshiners – Mark, Digger and Tim of Discovery’s MOONSHINERS – three competitors will faceoff each week in a series of challenges focused on making a specific type of spirit, including American whiskey, rum, gin, mountain brandy, and mezcal among others. Beyond the necessary amount of skill required to complete the challenges, these competitors will need to prove their knowledge of the craft and demonstrate profound creativity as they convert raw local ingredients into authentic, handcrafted spirits that will impress the most seasoned of distilling experts. The champion of each episode will receive a limited release of their winning recipe through Sugarlands Distilling Co.

With bragging rights on the line and a limited run of their winning product on the shelf, who will have what it takes to be named MASTER DISTILLER?

MASTER DISTILLER is produced for Discovery Channel by Magilla Entertainment. Executive producers for Magilla Entertainment are Matthew Ostrom, Laura Palumbo Johnson, Jason Fox and Cristin Cricco-Powell. For Discovery Channel, executive producer is Bill Howard and associate producer is Paola Espinosa.

#Politics @Interior President Trump’s Budget Proposes $12.8 Billion for Department of the Interior Programs in FY 2021

Invests $1B for a Stronger Interior Wildland Fire Program

$12.8B budget also proposes strategic investments in programs for land management, bolstering conservation and recreation activities, law enforcement, energy development and public infrastructure

President Donald J. Trump proposed a $12.8 billion Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 budget for the Department of the Interior, including a new, innovative $50 million initiative that would begin to transform and build a more stable and permanent wildland firefighting workforce to better align with the challenges of prolonged periods of wildfire activity and the need to more aggressively implement active vegetation management.

Overall, $1 billion is being requested specifically for wildland fire programs to protect Americans and their communities. The President continues to prioritize the health, safety and wellbeing of Americans by investing in the federal wildland fire workforce to implement active vegetation management practices, reduce hazardous fuel loads and suppress active wildfires on public lands.

“In 2019, we treated over 1.4 million acres, but we must recognize that the length of our fire season is getting longer; fires are large; and risks are higher. Therefore, we must innovate to strengthen our wildland fire and active management capability,” said Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt. “We are also extremely appreciative of today’s proposal to once again include the creation of the Public Lands Infrastructure Fund, and we remain optimistic that Congress will finally address the tremendous backlog caused by insufficient funds to appropriately maintain our National Parks, our Indian schools and Fish and Wildlife Service and Bureau of Land Management facilities.”

In addition to these highlights, the budget strikes a balance between development and conservation; fulfills trust responsibilities for Alaska Native and Tribal communities; improves visitor experiences at our nation’s natural and historical areas; enables reliable water supplies and delivery to people in the West; and makes strategic investments to increase broadband access in rural areas, critical mineral development and law enforcement.

Fighting and Reducing Wildfire Risk by Investing in Stronger Fire and Forestry Management Programs
$1 billion for wildland fire programs.

Bureau Highlights

Bureau of Land Management (BLM)

The BLM’s budget advances Presidential priorities such as enhancing conservation stewardship commitments, improving visitor experiences and recreational activities on public lands and water, driving economic growth, spurring job creation and continuing to produce domestic energy in a safe and responsible manner. The overall proposed 2021 budget for BLM is $1.2 billion and includes these notable allocations:
$116.8 million for the wild horse & burro management program, an increase of more than $15 million, coupled with program direction that could lay the groundwork for a long-term strategy to reduce the on-range population and achieve appropriate management levels.

Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM)

The BOEM continues to play a key role in achieving the Nation’s energy strategy by promoting energy security, environmental protection and economic development through responsible management of offshore energy and mineral resources. The President’s FY 2021 budget request reflects careful analysis and focuses on the execution of BOEM’s mission, including offshore oil and gas exploration and leasing, offshore renewable energy, marine minerals management and science-based analyses.

BOEM’s budget proposal continues to support efforts that are vital to advancing the President’s Executive Order 13795, Implementing an America-First Offshore Energy Strategy, which requires BOEM to develop and implement a new National Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program (National OCS Program) in conformity with the provisions of the OCS Lands Act.

The overall proposed 2021 budget for BOEM is $188.8 million.

Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE)

The BSEE continues to ensure safe and environmentally sustainable exploration development and production of America’s offshore energy resources. The overall proposed 2021 budget for BSEE is $204 million and supports:

BSEE is the only safety regulator in the world delivering critical safety information directly to several thousand workers through text messaging.
Offshore safety and environmental programs by allocating $196.3 million to BSEE’s base operations funding (excludes a one-time cancellation of prior-year balances).
Oil spill research by allocating $12.7 million.

Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSMRE)

The OSMRE continues to deliver its core oversight mission and support State and Tribal programs to ensure effective, consistent and high-quality regulatory and enforcement programs. In 2019, OSMRE completed five mining plan decision documents, and managed $291 million in mandatory Abandoned Mine Land reclamation grants provided to the 25 coal-producing States and three Tribes with an approved AML program. OSMRE continued to promote utilization of the Forestry Reclamation Approach (FRA), with 70 percent of all trees planted on FRA prepared areas. A total number of 4,447,721 trees were planted during FY 2019 with 3,123,940 utilizing FRA on 5,635 acres.

The FY 2021 budget provides the resources required to build on past accomplishments, streamline processes, achieve management efficiencies, and provide technical assistance and training to OSMRE's State and Tribal partners. The overall proposed 2021 budget for OSMRE is $116.2 million.

Bureau of Reclamation (BOR)

The BOR manages, develops and protects water and water-related resources in the interest of the American public. The 2021 proposed budget emphasizes funding for operation, maintenance and rehabilitation activities—including an increase of $14.3 million for dam safety at Reclamation facilities. Notable allocations in the proposed budget include:
$437.3 million for construction, planning and management of water supply and reliability projects.

$60 million to develop, evaluate and directly implement Reclamation-wide policies, rules and regulations as well as other administrative functions.

U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)

The USGS supports energy security, critical mineral resource assessments, natural hazard monitoring and research to inform resources management. The overall proposed 2021 budget for USGS is $971.2 million and supports:
Monitoring the Nation's earthquakes via the Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS) and through support of several regional seismic networks operated by university partners.
Operating the ShakeAlert Earthquake Early Warning System.
Developing the Landsat 9 ground station, keeping pace with NASA satellite development to meet a fiscal year 2021 launch, and developing recommendations for follow-on Earth observation tools and systems to affordably meet the needs of future geospatial users.
Releasing USGS assessments of undiscovered, technically recoverable energy resources (including oil and gas, methane hydrates, coal, uranium, and geothermal) in priority basins in the United States and globally; continuing the fundamental geological, geophysical, and geochemical research that underpins these assessments.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS)

The FWS works with others to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats for the benefit of the American people. The overall proposed 2021 budget for FWS is $1.4 billion and includes these notable allocations:
$525.3 million for National Wildlife Refuge System operations and maintenance.
$70.2 million for habitat conservation programs, including $57.2 million to support voluntary, citizen and community-based conservation on private lands.
An increase in funding, totaling $86.8 million, for visitor services in the National Wildlife Refuge System, which offers wildlife-dependent recreation opportunities to more than 59 million people each year.
$244.1 million to conserve, protect and enhance listed and at-risk fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats, specifically $28.6 million for conservation and restoration activities, including the proactive conservation of at-risk species. These funds support real results, such as the Service’s 2019 announcement that the Kirtland’s warbler is recovered and no longer requires Endangered Species Act (ESA) protection.

National Park Service (NPS)

The NPS system covers 85 million acres at 419 park units and served more than 318 million visitors in 2018. The NPS asset portfolio includes more than 5,500 miles of paved roads, 21,000 miles of trails and 25,000 buildings. In 2019, NPS leveraged $175 million in recreation fees to address priority maintenance projects to improve the visitor experience. The NPS estimates that in FY 2020 and FY 2021, $200 and $205 million in fee revenues respectively will be utilized for similar facility and infrastructure projects.

The proposed budget for the NPS prioritizes core mission capacity, increases recreational and public access and invests in critical infrastructure improvements. The 2021 proposed budget for NPS is $2.8 billion and includes these notable allocations:
$2.5 billion for operations of the National Park system with $844.2 million for facility operations and maintenance.
$366.2 million for law enforcement programs and other park protection activities to ensure the safety of park visitors.
$11 million for collaborative activities with States, gateway communities and lands adjacent to NPS units.
An increase of $3 million is proposed ($4 million in total) for infrastructure resiliency projects at the most urgent sites to mitigate wildfire risk to visitors, staff and park infrastructure.

Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA)

The BIA prioritizes operations and program assistance to American Indians, Indian Tribes and Alaska Natives. The 2021 proposed budget for BIA is $1.9 billion and includes these notable allocations:
$390.4 million to directly support 191 law enforcement programs and 96 corrections programs run either by tribes themselves or by the Office of Justice Services.
$81.7 million to support Consolidated Tribal Government programs, which also promote tribal self-determination by giving tribes the flexibility to combine and manage contracted programs and grants that are similar or compatible in order to simplify contracting.
A new allocation of $8.5 million to expand broadband access.
$25.7 million to support domestic energy abundance and economic development of energy resources on Tribal lands.

Bureau of Indian Education (BIE)

The BIE provides quality education opportunities for Indian Tribes and Alaska Natives. The BIE’s budget request began being presented separately last year in a historical action to recognize the distinct and separate responsibilities and missions of the Indian Affairs’ two bureaus. The FY2021 budget request will continue to advance BIE reforms, provide autonomy and accountability, streamline services, maximize government efficiencies and build capacity. It prioritizes direct school operations, school improvement and completion of the Bureau’s Strategic Direction and reform efforts to improve service and technical assistance for BIE-funded schools. The Bureau estimates the requested budget will support staffing of 2,894 FTEs in 2021. The overall proposed 2021 budget for BIE is $944.5 million and includes these notable allocations:
An increase of $5 million to expand broadband access at BIE-funded schools for a 21st-century learning environment, where educators and students in remote locations can access innovative resources, support online testing and collaborate with experts worldwide.
$728.7 million for Elementary and Secondary programs at 169 BIE schools and 14 dormitories.
$97.9 million for Post-Secondary Programs to operate two postsecondary institutions, administer grants to 29 Tribally operated colleges, and fund two Tribal technical colleges.
$62.8 million for BIE facility improvements.

The 2021 proposed budget for BFTA (formerly the “Office of the Special Trustee for American Indians”) is $108.4 million in support of its mission to honor America’s trust responsibilities while providing stewardship of trust assets.

Office of Insular Affairs (OIA)

The 2021 proposed budget for OIA includes $89.2 million to help strengthen economic and health capacities in the U.S. territories. A list of accomplishments and actions demonstrating the Trump Administration’s strong commitment to the U.S. insular areas in 2019 can be found online.

Commenting on this evening’s announcement, Ron Meyer, chair of the Academy Museum Board of Trustees and Vice Chairman of NBCUniversal, said, “This is a museum that only the Academy could create: exciting and illuminating; historic and contemporary.
