He lived in Amsterdam until 1856, when he travelled throughout Europe lived in Brussels for a short time before settling in Schaerbeek, it was there he was influenced by François-Antoine Bossuet. He painted cities in Italy, Germany and Austria as well, he exhibited at the Third and Fourth International Exhibitions in London. In 1880, he became a Belgian citizen. In 1885, he travelled to New Zealand and Australia, where he exhibited at the Victorian Academy of Arts. After living in Melbourne for a time, he returned home in 1889.

From 1894 to 1897, he painted a series of 59 watercolors depicting the old areas of Brussels.

In 2013-14 season, Moledo started in the Champions League qualifying round against PAOK.

He had a vital role for the club in all competitions. Brazilian central defender Rodrigo Moledo, after a six months contract with his old club Internacional, will be a member of Panathinaikos until the summer of 2018; this will be the second spell of the 28-year-old former international in a European club, after his two years he spent at Metalist Kharkiv. On 19 March 2016, the Brazilian central defender scored twice against Iraklis for Super League game and expressed his happiness for his team's victory, his excellent performance during the second half of the season, attracts the interest of Fluminense FC and Peñarol in signing Panathinaikos' Brazilian central defender. However the officials of the Greek club have no intention to sell the 28-year-old former international, since manager Andrea Stramaccioni considers him to be one of the most important players in the current squad. On 28 July 2016, he scored the only goal in a UEFA Europa League game against AIK for the first leg of the third qualifying round.

He started the 2016–17 season as the indisputable leader of the Greens' defence. On 14 February 2017, Panathinaikos defender is believed to be unhappy for not having his contract renewed as ex-Panathinaikos manager Andrea Stramaccioni promised him. According to newspapers, Moledo had agreed with Stramaccioni for a new deal until 2020.

Madan-e Nakhlak

Madan-e Nakhlak is a village in Chupanan Rural District, Anarak District, Nain County, Isfahan Province, Iran. At the 2006 census, its population was 55, in 52 families. Nakhlak Lead Complex has a history of 2500 years, one of the oldest Underground mines in the country, lies on the side-line of the Central Desert in Iran; the method of extraction in this mine is accumulative. Nakhlak, in recent years, has been able to produce more than its nominal capacity, sent to the market; the amount of the sustainable Mineral is 30,000 tons annually which through processing, 3000 tons of concentrate is produced in a year. The establishment of a 6,000-ton processing plant, revival of Lead Mines in Anarak region, new exploration projects and the establishment of Iran Mining Museum are all in progress in the Complex; the Mine holds ISO9001 & OHSAS 18001 certificates. The Nakhlak mine, 55 kilometers northeast of Anarak is the largest and one of the most ancient lead ore deposits exploited in the Anarak region.

Mining history, based on dated material from the mine adits and nearby historical ruins, was traced to the earliest stages of the Sassanid Empire, even the latest stages of the Parthian Empire. The Gombad and Shaft no. 1 of the Nakhlak mine are nearby undated historical digging sites, where smelters and mining tools are still preserved. Old reports on Iranian lead ores, including Nakhlak, can be found in the articles of Vaughan and Stahl. More modern mining started in the mid-1930s, in co-operation with German and Austrian engineers and geologists like E. Fischer, E. Bohne, G. Ladame and M. Mazcek; the lead mineralization is situated in the lower part of the Late Cretaceous carbonate rocks at Nakhlak, where sandstones and conglomerates are more common. Many characteristics of the ore deposit fit well with that of the typical Iranian MVT deposits; the ore bodies occur within dolomites and dolomitized sandy limestones as steeply dipping quartz-calcite-barite veins or vein clusters of massive galena.

Their thickness extends up to 500 meters in length. Mining reserves have been estimated at ca. 7 million tons of lead, zinc and a considerable amount of silver. The lead predominates over the zinc and silver contents, suggesting a basinal brine origin or fluid release model for the deposit; the northern and southern flanks, as well as the deeper levels, offer potential supplementary mining possibilities, where new ore bodies may be found. The primary ore seems to be monomineralic, consisting of galena. Cerussite in various forms is common in the oxidized zone

Landscape planning

Landscape planning is a branch of landscape architecture. According to Erv Zube landscape planning is defined as an activity concerned with developing landscaping amongst competing land uses while protecting natural processes and significant cultural and natural resources. Park systems and greenways of the type designed by Frederick Law Olmsted are key examples of landscape planning. Landscape designers tend to work for clients. Landscape planners analyze broad issues as well as project characteristics which constrain design projects. Landscape planners may work on projects which are of broad geographical scope, concern many land uses or many clients or are implemented over a long period of time; as an example, the damage caused by unplanned mineral extraction was one of the early reasons for a public demand for landscape planning. Alberti wrote on the need for town squares for markets and specific implementations to make most use of the space. In North Europe this developed into the idea that residential squares should planned around green spaces.

The first space of this type was the Place des Vosges. Residential squares were made in Britain and their planning developed into the idea of incorporating public open space. Frederick Law Olmsted gave momentum to this idea with his proposal for a park systems in Boston - the famous Emerald Necklace. Patrick Abercrombie took up this idea and incorporated it in his great 1943-4 Open Space Plan for the County of London. In the United States, landscape architects provide landscape planning services focused on the natural environment along with urban planners. But, unlike Canada and Europe, the US does not have a national land use planning system. Frederick Law Olmsted and Ian McHarg are two influential American landscape architects that worked as planners. McHarg's work on overlay landscape planning contributed to the development of GIS and to the foundation of ESRI by Jack Dangermond; the principles of landscape planning are now incorporated in various types of legislation and policy documents. In America, the National Environmental Policy Act was influenced by the work of Ian McHarg on Environmental impact assessment.

In Germany, the Federal Nature Conservation Act requires the preparation of landscape plans. For the Europe Union as a whole, the European Landscape Convention has wide-ranging implications for the design and planning of relationships between development and the landscape. In Asia, major development projects are taking place and illustrating the need for good landscape planning; the Three Gorges Dam, for example, will have extensive impacts on the landscape. They have been planned to a degree but future monitoring of the project is to show that better landscape planning and design would have been possible; the conventional planning process is a linear progression of activities. The common steps are: Identification of opportunities. Establishment of goals. Inventory and analysis of the biophysical environment. Human community inventory and analysis. Development of concepts and the selection of options. Adoption of a plan. Community involvement and education. Detailed design. Plan implementation. Plan administration.

Landscape planning not always means an ecological planning method, for that it must be considered that "planning is a process that uses the scientific and technical information for considering and reaching consensus on a range of choices. Ecology is the study of the relationship of all living things, including people, to their biological and physical environments. Ecological planning may be defined as the use of biophysical and sociocultural information to suggest opportunities and constraints for decision making about the use of landscape".
