Natural Resources Canada

The Department of Natural Resources, operating under the FIP applied title Natural Resources Canada, is the ministry of the government of Canada responsible for natural resources, energy and metals, earth sciences and remote sensing. It was created in 1995 by amalgamating the now-defunct Departments of Energy and Resources and Forestry. Natural Resources Canada works to ensure the responsible development of Canada's natural resources, including energy, forests and metals. NRCan uses its expertise in earth sciences to build and maintain an up-to-date knowledge base of our landmass and resources. To promote internal collaboration, NRCan has implemented a departmental wide wiki based on MediaWiki. Natural Resources Canada collaborates with American and Mexican government scientists, along with the Commission for Environmental Cooperation, to produce the North American Environmental Atlas, used to depict and track environmental issues for a continental perspective. Under the Canadian constitution, responsibility for natural resources belongs to the provinces, not the federal government.

However, the federal government has jurisdiction over off-shore resources and commerce in natural resources, international relations, boundaries. The current Minister of Natural Resources is Seamus O'Regan; the department is governed by the Resources and Technical Surveys Act, R. S. C. C. R-7 and the Department of Natural Resources Act, S.

Carlo Curti (1807-1872)

Carlo Curti was a Bolognese Italian cellist and composer. He studied violin under Rolla, the cello under Parisini, he was made professor at the Liceo di Musica as a young man and in May 1838 became First Cello in the Teatro Regio in Parma when it was led by Nicola De Giovanni. He retired to Bologna, his home town and birthplace, in 1871 or 1872 and died from a cardiac condition caused by pneumonia soon after; the 17 May 1838 issue of the music journal Teatri Art E Letteratura pointed to him as him an example of Italian musical excellence, a gift to the world. Curti composed and arranged works for the cello and piano: Souvenir sur La Sonnambula variato Vioncello Divertimento dell'opera'Il Trovatore' Ricordanze dell' Opera L'Africana di Meyerbeer Variate ricordanze dell'opera'Un Ballo in Maschera' La Viola del Pensiero Il Pianto d'amore Il Ferito morente per la patria Rimembranze: melodie variate sull'opera La sonnambula del celebre m.
