Willenbring, now at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego, California, says she was “pleased and surprised” by the move, which she says “sends a message that this sort of thing isn’t tolerated anymore.” She calls the new name “completely appropriate.”The glacier, originally named in 1994, sits near Mata Taua Peak in the Royal Society Range. “Matataua” is a Maori word meaning “a scout before the troops,” says Louis Yost, BGN’s executive secretary. BGN made the decision in agreement with the New Zealand Geographic Board (Ngā Pou Taunaha o Aotearoa). *Correction, 19 September, 10:10 a.m.: This story has been updated to reflect BGN’s status as an interdepartmental agency. The changes sparked by the #MeToo movement have now reached Antarctic glaciers.Last week, the Marchant Glacier was renamed the Matataua Glacier in the wake of a finding of sexual harassment against its namesake, geologist David Marchant. The change was made by the U.S. Board on Geographic Names (BGN) in Reston, Virginia, an interdepartment agency of the U.S. government.“Boston University determined David Marchant violated Title IX regulations, and U.S. policy says geographic features are to be named for people who have made extraordinary or outstanding contributions to the advancement of polar science,” says Kelly Falkner, director of the Office of Polar Programs at the National Science Foundation in Alexandria, Virginia, the lead agency for the U.S. Antarctic program. “Boston University found Marchant created an environment that was hostile and harmful to fellow researchers, particularly women. That behavior is unacceptable and impedes scientific progress,” Falkner adds. Emailcenter_img Sign up for our daily newsletter Get more great content like this delivered right to you!

Samsung Explains Note7 Failure Promises to Do Better

first_imgPeter Suciu is a freelance writer who has covered consumer electronics, technology, electronic entertainment and fitness-related trends for more than a decade. His work has appeared in more than three dozen publications, and he is the co-author of Careers in the Computer Game Industry (Career in the New Economy series), a career guide aimed at high school students from Rosen Publishing. You can connect with Peter on Google+. Galaxy Delays Samsung unveiled its new “8-Point Battery Safety Check,” which is meant to address any potential problems. It encompasses a durability test, visual inspection, X-ray test, disassembling test and OCT test, as well as a charge and discharge test, TVOC test and accelerated usage test. Samsung Electronics on Monday announced that it has developed new quality assurance protocols to ensure that it won’t have a repeat of the catastrophic issues that plagued its Galaxy Note7 handsets. The company last fall issued a universal recall after several of the devices caught fire or exploded.In one incident, a Southwest Airlines flight had to be evacuated in Louisville, Kentucky, after a Samsung Galaxy Note7 caught fire and produced thick smoke on an aircraft. Samsung initially blamed the problem on an “isolated” faulty battery cell issue, before opting to issue a general recall of the device.Samsung has reaffirmed that the design and production of the batteries caused the problems — not the hardware or software — but the company has acknowledged that it should have done more to ensure that the batteries could not overheat and cause fires. It has enlisted a group of external advisors to provide clear and objective perspectives on battery safety and innovation. What is also likely to come out of Samsung’s new emphasis on battery safety is a delay of its next flagship handset, likely the Galaxy S8. It had been expected to make its debut at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, next month, but that now appears unlikely.”If they don’t make MWC, that breaks from tradition — but we can expect that the phone is still coming,” said Llamas.In fact, such a delay could be met positively, as “taken in this context, [it shows] that the company is making sure it does things right next time,” said Endpoint’s Kay.”The public is both sophisticated about understanding that technical failures occur and ADD enough to forget the past pretty quickly — so if Samsung gets the next one right, all will be forgiven,” he said.”It is a right step, but that’s all it is,” said Llamas. “Samsung will need to make multiple steps to regain consumer confidence. They’ve identified the problem, but now they need to ensure that this doesn’t happen again.” All the Right Moves Although Samsung addressed what it will do to help avoid future problems, the company did not take full blame for the issue.”There is plenty of blame to go around here,” said Ramon Llamas, IDC’s research manager for wearables and mobile phones.”When [Samsung] asks a supplier to ramp up production on batteries to meet demand, there is blame as well,” he told TechNewsWorld.”The next test will be when they unveil a new flagship phone; they will have to showcase how innovative it is in terms of features, but also address the power in the way it charges and its reliability,” said IHS Markit’s Fogg.”That will be part of the next announcement for any of its products, as the lithium ion batteries are used in so many products –from laptops to phones and even to cars,” he added. Passing the Buck? In addition, Samsung will conduct a multilayer safety measures protocol on all its devices. It will cover the overall design and materials, as well as device hardware strength. Further, it will ensure that software algorithms are in place for safer battery charging temperatures.”Samsung is doing the right thing. It took its time, but eventually it got enough instances of failed batteries in the lab to figure out what the technical issue was,” said Roger Kay, principal analyst at Endpoint Technologies Associates.”At the same time, Samsung has been relatively forthcoming about the results and taking responsibility,” he told TechNewsWorld.”The first thing Samsung had to do was make it clear that it understood the core of the Note7 fire, and it had to ensure that it won’t happen again,” noted Ian Fogg, senior director for mobile and telecoms at IHS Markit.”It had to make creditable assurances to customers, vendors and retailers that this wouldn’t happen with future models,” he told TechNewsWorld. “The announcement today addressed both of those issues.”last_img read more

New antiWolbachia drug could potentially treat onchocerciasis and lymphatic filariasis

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Jan 8 2019Researchers from LSTM and the University of Liverpool have successfully optimized a hit from a whole cell screening of a 10000-compound library to deliver the first novel fully synthetic and rationally designed anti-Wolbachia drug, AWZ1066S, which could potentially be used to treat onchocerciasis and lymphatic filariasis (LF).LSTM’s Deputy Director, Professor Steve Ward, is co-senior author on a paper (link is external) published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. He said: “The identification represents the first potential designer drug of its kind, specifically targeting Wolbachia as a curative treatment for onchocerciasis and LF. The candidate selection status of this compound represents the successful conclusion to a multidisciplinary teams efforts to generate the first synthetic drug specifically developed to target this bacteria and we are really excited to take the compound to the next stage of its development. Over 157 million people globally are affected by onchocerciasis and LF, this particular molecule has the potential to shorten that timescale of treatments from weeks to days which could significantly impact the international timetable for the elimination of these two neglected tropical diseases.”Onchocerciasis and LF are neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) caused by filarial parasites that can lead to severe disability. The inability of current drugs to kill adult parasites has highlighted the urgent need for new curative anti-filarial drugs for these debilitating diseases.In the search for new anti-filarial drugs, the team have focussed on targeting Wolbachia, a bacterial symbiont that is essential for parasite development and survival. Although the anti-filarial drug, doxycycline has proven effective clinically through the depletion of Wolbachia, the treatment regimens are protracted, and contradictions restrict its widespread implementation.The starting point for the work emerged from screening activities of the A∙WOL programme funded through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and directed by LSTM’s Professor Mark Taylor. He said: “The anti-Wolbachia strategy has proved to be a paradigm changing therapeutic approach to treatment. The repurposing of drugs already licensed and the discovery of new compounds through screening during the 10 years of A∙WOL’s initial work has been taken up as an alternative strategy where MDA is compromised. The further development of AWZ1066S represents another step forward in bringing relief to many millions of people.”Related StoriesExciting study shows how centrioles center the process of cell divisionNanoparticles used to deliver CRISPR gene editing tools into the cellAntioxidant precursor molecule could improve dopamine levels in Parkinson’s patientsAWZ1066S’s high specificity is a significant advantage resulting in minimal impact on the gut microbiota, and the selection and emergence of resistance following the administration to patients, unlike other anti-Wolbachia based broad spectrum antibiotic treatments. Furthermore, it has a faster kill rate compared to other known antibiotics tested against Wolbachia in vitro suggesting that the time-frame for treatment delivery could be fewer than 7 days.Working is close partnership with the University of Liverpool’s Department of Chemistry has continued to prove a winning combination for the team. UoL’s Professor Paul O’Neill is co-senior author on the paper, he said: “The novel synthetic molecule, AWZ1066S, was designed and developed at Liverpool from screening hits, and involved multi-parameter chemical optimization with evaluation of over 400 analogs. Our approach has provided a molecule with high potency and specificity against the target pathogen along with desired oral drug properties. A key to the success of the programme was a combination of our in-house expertise in medicinal chemistry in parallel to a close working relationship with our industrial partner Eisai Ltd with additional support from AstraZeneca. This enabled development of this drug in a very short time frame”This study presents AWZ1066S as a candidate molecule for depleting Wolbachia, warranting further study to improve treatment options, and as such this drug will now enter formal preclinical evaluation. This novel compound provides a unique opportunity to make a significant contribution to communities affected by filariasis especially if the predicted macrofilaricidal effect can be confirmed in clinical trials. These alternative strategies are needed urgently to reach the goal of onchocerciasis and LF elimination. Source: read more

Researchers show potential of biomimicry to grow prevascularized tissues for cardiac patches

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Mar 29 2019A team led by Feng Zhao, associate professor of biomedical engineering at Michigan Technological University, recently published two new papers on best practices in engineering prevascularized tissues.The team’s research paper, published in Theranostics, focuses on developing a stem cell cardiac patch made with tissue engineered with tiny blood vessels to be like real heart muscled. Their review paper published in Acta Biomaterialia, examines the pros and cons of six innovative strategies for aligning the microvessels in engineered tissues.The vascular system brings nutrients and oxygen to tissues; important ingredients for successful healing following an organ transplant, heart surgery or skin graft. Microvascular structures, which are capillary-like microvessels, are particularly important and, in order to be effective, must be highly aligned, dense and mature. Engineering biomaterials with such a robust vascular system is difficult and depends on the framework — the scaffold –to grow the cells.”The significance of microvessel organization in 3D scaffolds has largely been ignored,” Zhao explained. “Microvessels are not the same as cells; people have done a lot of work looking at the alignment of cells but this work on microvessels is still new. Understanding the mechanisms behind microvessel alignment in biomaterials will help us and other biomedical engineers to create better, more refined implants and devices.”To get there, Zhao and her team reviewed the advantages and disadvantages of six different methods used to align vessels: electromechanical stimulation, surface topography, micro-scaffolding and microfluidics, surface patterning and 3D printing.The advantages vary quite a bit and focus on the ease or controllability of a method. Electromechanical stimulation is simply stretching; micro-scaffolding and microfluidics make medical testing easier; 3D printing is customizable. However, the disadvantages center on one major challenge: Engineered microvessels tend to be too big –they’re much larger than the real capillaries in heart tissues — and often they’re not dense and mature enough to properly supply nutrients and blood.Related StoriesSmoking triples the risk of death from cardiovascular diseaseTeam approach to care increases likelihood of surviving refractory cardiogenic shockStroke should be treated 15 minutes earlier to save lives, study suggestsAligning microvessels is a bit like plumbing and mismatched sizes don’t bode well for turning the water on. For some hands-on problem solving, Zhao’s team focused in on biomimicking the microvessel alignment, density and dimension of heart muscle.To date, the engineering process to create the ideal biomaterial for a prevascularized cardiac patch has not made it to clinical trials. Zhao and her team hope to change that.”Myocardial infarction is a big problem and currently there is no good treatment for it,” she said. A cardiac patch could help following a heart attack. “The cardiac patch is completely biological, comprised of stem cells with vasculature that mimics real tissue, that could help repair a heart.”The Theranostics paper delves into the role of microvessels in that process and how an engineered tissue can follow the lead of natural ones. Lead author Zichen Qian, a doctoral graduate from Michigan Tech and now a research scientist at Merck, has worked extensively with Zhao on prevascularized tissues. The University recognized Zhao’s and Qian’s efforts last year with the Bhakta Rath award. After Qian graduated, PhD candidates Dhavan Sharma and Wenkai Jia continued this research. The team says heart muscle is one of the trickiest tissues to work with.”In the heart muscle, the cells are highly aligned for electromechanical signal transaction and the microvessels are also highly aligned and dense,” Zhao said, explaining that microvessels in the patch can connect to native vasculature, bringing nutrients and oxygen. Without this, the engineered cardiac patch might die. “But all tissues have this microstructure. It’s everywhere. This technology could be used for skeletal muscles, burn and chronic wound healing and nerve regeneration.”Zhao and her team have shown the potential of biomimicry to grow microvessels in tissues suitable for a cardiac patch. The next steps will be animal trials and refining medical technology for implants and devices. With the help of tiny, dense, neatly aligned blood vessels, engineered tissues could help hearts, skin, bones and muscles regenerate naturally. Source: read more

Inventors have their own Oscars The SciTech Awards

(Photo by Danny Moloshok/Invision/AP) 33 scientists honored by film academy with Sci-Tech Awards © 2018 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. Presented since 1931, the film academy’s Scientific and Technical Awards recognize engineering and design achievements that have had a lasting influence on the art of filmmaking, from newfangled camera rigs to advanced computer software that makes animated renderings more precise.”The academy tries to recognize cleverness and the things that change the movies,” said Doug Roble, creative director of software at Digital Domain and vice-chair of the academy’s Scientific and Technical Awards committee.Since 1977, these prizes have been awarded at a dinner ceremony ahead of the Academy Awards. The private, untelevised event is generally hosted by a celebrity or two, who often struggle to explain the inventions being honored.This year’s ceremony, set for Saturday, will be hosted by Patrick Stewart.The Sci-Tech Awards, as they are colloquially known, comprise certificates, plaques and Oscar statuettes. Unlike the Academy Awards, Sci-Tech prizes aren’t for the previous year’s work. Inventions aren’t generally considered for Sci-Tech Awards until they’ve been used in various productions, Roble said.”We take the long view,” he said. “We are awarding software or hardware or engineering that has stood the test of time… One of the things we look for is adoption of the technology beyond just the people who created it.”All kinds of game-changing inventions are eligible for consideration.”Last year we gave a mechanical horse puppet a Sci-Tech Award,” Roble said.The creation makes it easier to film scenes on “horseback,” for both the performer and director. But it’s not just a hydraulic marvel.”It had to be horsey enough that the horses around the actor will accept it,” Roble said, adding that the puppet has a tail that swishes back and forth. It was used in 2015’s “The Revenant,” among other films.Other inventions that have been recognized include a pump device that helps flip cars in action films and software (created by Roble) that digitized certain shots of food that were previously done with practical effects.This year’s awardees include an advanced camera rig mount that makes aerial shots easier and several software developments critical to modern animated movies.The Presto and Premo character animation systems allow artists to see their fully rendered characters interact with other characters in real time. The old process was far less detailed and way more time consuming, Roble said.”The technology these guys built is just beautiful, and it’s optimized to take full advantage of the latest hardware,” he said, adding that it’s been used in Pixar and DreamWorks Animation productions.Three Oscar statuettes will be presented Saturday as well, with two of them recognizing the Houdini visual effects and animation system.”It has become the de-facto standard for doing visual effects at studios,” Roble said. “It’s like a Photoshop for destruction.”Where Photoshop allows users to manipulate images, Houdini allows them to manipulate three-dimensional objects. Artists can program specific details that are then extrapolated out to entire structures or scenes.It’s this technology that created the warped buildings in Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” and galactic destruction in “Rogue One.”The program’s pioneer, Mark Elendt, and the company he works for, Side Effects Software, will each receive the Academy Award of Merit, an Oscar statuette. Visual effects artist Jonathan Erland will receive the Gordon E. Sawyer Award, an Oscar statuette for his career contributions that include pioneering effects for “Star Wars” in 1977 and “Star Trek” two years later.Roble noted that the innovations recognized with the film academy’s Sci-Tech Awards all share one thing in common: “This is all in service of art.” This document is subject to copyright.

NFLNFLPA end productive talks about new CBA early report says

first_img Browns’ Myles Garrett eager for ‘more freedom to be the player I want to be’ Jimmy Garoppolo: It was ‘invaluable’ to learn from Tom Brady Desmond Harrison charged with strangulation, released by Cardinals From the NFLPA & NFL Brian McCarthy (@NFLprguy) July 17, 2019Goodell confirmed earlier this month that the league would like to have a new CBA in place before the start of the 2019 regular season, which will kick off September 5 when the Bears host the Packers.It was reported that discussions between the NFL and NFLPA were “set to intensify” this summer, with the meetings scheduled for July 17-19 marking the first time the two sides will engage in talks for three straight days – or so they thought.The current CBA is set to expire after the 2020 season. While there’s no guarantee an agreement will be reached, both sides are optimistic they can find some middle ground to avoid a work stoppage. The report noted those in attendance included NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith, a number of owners from the NFL’s Management Council Executive Committee and a number of players from the NFLPA’s Executive Committee, including Richard Sherman, Russell Okung and Adam Vinatieri.The NFL and NFLPA bargaining session, originally scheduled for 3 days, is already over. One source described it as “productive.” Now need time to review and regroup. Plan is to resume on July 29.- Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) July 17, 2019Despite the abrupt sitdown, the NFL and NFLPA released a joint statement summarizing the meeting that took place as a “productive” one. Related News “Today’s meeting was productive, constructive and beneficial for both sides, and the meetings between the NFLPA’s Executive Committee and the NFL’s Management Council Executive Committee will continue,” the statement read. Representatives for the NFL and NFL Player’s Association met Wednesday in Chicago to discuss a new collective bargaining agreement, though the meeting didn’t last as long as initially believed.According to NFL Media, citing unidentified sources, the session initially slated to take place for three days has ended already after just one, but the two sides are scheduled to reconvene July 29.last_img read more

Insigne hopes Napoli seal deal for Real Madrid outcast James Rodriguez

first_imgLorenzo Insigne believes James Rodriguez would flourish at Napoli if he chooses to join the Serie A club.As reported by Goal, Napoli are locked in a two-team race with Atletico Madrid to sign the Colombia playmaker, with the Serie A side needing to offload players in order to raise funds to sign the Real Madrid midfielder. “I think we are getting stronger, but we have to start off on the right foot because we have the potential to fight at the top.”The Serie A runners-up get their pre-season preparations underway with a fixture against third-tier side Feralpisalo on July 19.They then face Cremonese on July 24 before a tougher test against Champions League winners Liverpool at Murrayfield Stadium in Scotland on July 28. Indeed, Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has already stated that Madrid’s asking price is beyond reasonable and that they are waiting for the Liga club to lower their demands.Watch Premier League beginning August 2019 | Soccer Live Streaming | DAZN CAAtletico, meanwhile, have denied being close to an agreement and Italy international Insigne remains hopeful James will consider a switch to Stadio San Paolo.”The doors are open for strong players, we welcome them all,” the Napoli captain told Radio Kiss Kiss.”James Rodriguez is a true number 10, he has quality and together with us he would be great.”Those choices, however, are up to the coach and the club.”Napoli have been quiet in the transfer market to date, acquiring only centre-half Kostas Manolas from Roma and right-back Giovanni Di Lorenzo from Empoli since the end of last season.But after two successive second-place finishes and with the defender Insigne views as the best in Europe, Kalidou Koulibaly, already on board, Carlo Ancelotti’s men are continuing to aim high.”The Scudetto is everyone’s dream,” Insigne said.”In the past few years we have come close and we have been disappointed.

US removing Turkey from F35 programme after its Russian missile defence purchase

first_imgWASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States said on Wednesday that it was removing Turkey from the F-35 fighter jet programme, a move long threatened and expected after Ankara began accepting delivery of an advanced Russian missile defence system last week. A Lockheed Martin F-35 aircraft is seen at the ILA Air Show in Berlin, Germany, April 25, 2018. REUTERS/Axel SchmidtThe first parts of the S-400 air defence system were flown to the Murted military air base northwest of Ankara on Friday, sealing NATO ally Turkey’s deal with Russia, which Washington had struggled for months to prevent. “The U.S. and other F-35 partners are aligned in this decision to suspend Turkey from the programme and initiate the process to formally remove Turkey from the programme,” Ellen Lord, the undersecretary of defence for acquisition and sustainment, told a briefing. Turkey’s foreign ministry said the move was unfair and could affect relations between the two countries. Lord said moving the supply chain for the advanced fighter jet would cost the United States between $500 million (£402 million) and $600 million (£482.51 million) in non-recurring engineering costs. Turkey makes more than 900 parts of the F-35, she said, adding the supply chain would transition from Turkish to mainly U.S. factories as Turkish suppliers are removed. “Turkey will certainly and regrettably lose jobs and future economic opportunities from this decision,” Lord said. “It will no longer receive more than $9 billion in projected work share related to the F-35 over the life of the programme.” The F-35 stealth fighter jet, the most advanced aircraft in the U.S. arsenal, is used by NATO and other U.S. allies. Washington is concerned that deploying the S-400 with the F-35 would allow Russia to gain too much inside information about the aircraft’s stealth system. “The F-35 cannot coexist with a Russian intelligence collection platform that will be used to learn about its advanced capabilities,” the White House said in a statement earlier on Wednesday. Washington had long said the acquisition of the S-400 might lead to Turkey’s expulsion from the F-35 programme. FRAYED TIES After the Pentagon announcement, Turkey’s foreign ministry said in a statement: “We invite the United States to return from this mistake which would open irreparable wounds in strategic relations.” NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, speaking at the Aspen Institute’s annual security forum in Aspen, Colorado, said he was concerned at Turkey’s expulsion from the F-35 programme. But while the S-400 could not become part of NATO’s shared air and missile defences, he said, Turkey has aircraft and radars that would remain part of the system. “The S-400, the Russian air defence system, it’s not possible to integrate into the integrated NATO air defence and missile system, which is about sharing, you know, radar picture, about joint air policing, which is about shared capabilities. And Turkey has not asked for that,” Stoltenberg said. The S-400 acquisition is one of several issues that have frayed ties between the two allies, including a dispute over strategy in Syria east of the Euphrates River, where the United States is allied with Kurdish forces that Turkey views as foes. The Pentagon had already laid out a plan to remove Turkey from the programme, which included halting training for Turkish pilots on the aircraft. Lord said all the Turkish F-35 pilots and personnel had “firm plans” to leave the United States and were scheduled to leave by July 31. Turkey will no longer be able to buy the 100 F-35s it had agreed to purchase. “These would likely have been delivered at an annual rate of 8-12 aircraft/year through the 2020s,” Byron Callan, an analyst at Capital Alpha Partners, said in a research note on Wednesday. The jet’s prime contractor, Lockheed Martin Corp (LMT.N) and the jet’s programme office at the Pentagon “should be able to re-market those delivery positions,” Callan said. Lockheed Martin spokeswoman Carolyn Nelson said: “Over the last several months we’ve been working to establish alternative sources of supply in the United States to quickly” adjust for the loss of Turkey’s contribution to the programme. The United States is considering expanding sales of the jets to five other nations, including Romania, Greece and Poland, as European allies bulk up their defences in the face of a strengthening Russia. David Trachtenberg, the deputy undersecretary of defence for policy, told reporters at the briefing that the United States still valued its relationship with Turkey. “Our strategic partnership continues, but as I said, this is a specific response to a specific action,” Trachtenberg said.

But instead of lying peacefully at the bottom of the sea, that sub, called the Komsomolets, is leaking radioactive material deep beneath the waves. Several samples collected by an underwater robot from and around the sunken sub’s ventilation duct show that it’s leaking high levels of cesium, a radioactive element, according to the Norwegian Institute of Marine Research (IMR). Some of the cesium levels are 800,000 times higher than normal levels in the Norwegian Sea, according to the institute. However, this radiation does not pose a risk to people or fish, the IMR noted.

While the Komsomolets was on patrol in April 1989, a fire broke out on board, leading to the sub’s eventual demise. As the Komsomolets sank, its two nuclear reactors and at least two torpedoes with plutonium-containing nuclear warheads fell to the bottom of the sea. Since then, the Russians and Norwegians have monitored the wreck, noting its radioactive leaks. “We took water samples from inside this particular duct because the Russians had documented leaks here both in the 1990s and more recently in 2007,” Hilde Elise Heldal, the expedition leader, said in the IMR statement. “So we weren’t surprised to find high levels here.” An analysis showed that one sample had 100 becquerels per liter, compared with the usual 0.001 becquerels per liter normally found in the Norwegian Sea. (A becquerel (Bq) is a unit of radioactivity that represents decay per second.) But Heldal said it was important to put this number into perspective. For instance, following the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, regulations were set for how much cesium would be allowed in foods. “After the Chernobyl accident in 1986, Norwegian authorities set this limit to 600 Bq/kilogram,” she said. So, even though the cesium levels from parts of the submarine “were clearly above what is normal in the oceans,” they still “weren’t alarmingly high,” Heldal said. Moreover, samples taken a few yards from the duct didn’t have any measurable levels of cesium in them. “We didn’t find any measurable levels of radioactive cesium there, unlike in the duct itself,” Justin Gwynn, a researcher at the Norwegian Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority, said in the statement. Strange cloud But the remotely operated vehicle (ROV), called the Aegir 6000, did catch a strange sight on film: an eerie cloud emanating from the submarine’s duct. After detecting the cloud, the ROV took a sample, which was later found to contain high levels of cesium. Then, the ROV took another sample from a cloud seen rising from a nearby grille. This reading also had high radioactivity levels. Now, the researchers are wondering if this “cloud” is related to the high radioactivity levels in those areas. “It looks very dramatic on video, and it’s definitely interesting, but we don’t really know what we’re seeing and why this phenomenon occurs,” Gwynn said. “It’s something we want to find out more about.” [Photos: WWI-Era German Submarine Wreck Discovered Off Scotland Coast] The researchers plan to study the many samples the ROV collected from the submarine. In the meantime, Heldal stressed that seafood eaters have little to worry about. “What we have found during our survey has very little impact on Norwegian fish and seafood,” she said. “In general, cesium levels in the Norwegian Sea are very low, and as the wreck is so deep, the pollution from Komsomolets is quickly diluted.” Even so, scientists plan to monitor the vessel for years to come, especially since it’s the only known source of radioactive pollution in Norway’s waters. “We need good documentation of pollution levels in seawater, seabed sediments and, of course, fish and seafood,” Heldal said. “So, we’ll continue monitoring both Komsomolets in particular and Norwegian waters in general.”last_img read more

Can the Ayodhya case be solved through mediation SC to pass order

first_imgTwo new observers appointed at disputed site in Ayodhya SHARE SHARE EMAIL The Supreme Court on Wednesday will have a crucial hearing on Ram Janambhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute in Ayodhya to decide whether the politically sensitive case can be adjudicated through mediation.The top court on February 26 had said it would pass an order on March 6 on whether to refer the matter to a court-appointed mediator.A five-judge Constitution Bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi had asked the contesting parties to explore the possibility of amicably settling the decades old dispute through mediation, saying it may help in “healing relations”. Even if there is “one per cent chance” of settling the dispute amicably, the parties should go for mediation, the bench, also comprising Justices S A Bobde, D Y Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and S A Nazeer, had observed.The suggestion for mediation was mooted by Justice Bobde, during the hearing when both the Hindu and the Muslim sides were sparring over the veracity of documents related to the case which were translated by the Uttar Pradesh government and filed with the apex court registry.“We are considering it (mediation) very seriously. You all (parties) have used the word that this matter is not adversarial. We would like to give a chance to mediation even if there is one per cent chance,” the bench had said. “We would like to know your (both parties) views on it. We do not want any third party to make a comment to jeopardise the entire process,” the bench had said.While some of the Muslim parties agreed to the court’s suggestion on mediation, some Hindu bodies including the Ram Lalla Virajman opposed it, saying several such attempts have failed in the past. “Do you seriously think that the entire dispute for so many years is for property? We can only decide property rights but we are considering the possibility of healing relations,” the bench had said.The bench, which posted the main matter for hearing after eight weeks and directed its registry to provide translated copies of documents to the parties within six weeks to check their veracity, said it wanted to explore the possibility of mediation to utilise the time till the next date of hearing.Fourteen appeals have been filed in the apex court against the 2010 Allahabad High Court judgment, delivered in four civil suits, that the 2.77-acre land in Ayodhya be partitioned equally among the three parties — the Sunni Waqf Board, the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla.

Congress dissolves its Karnataka unit as dissenting voices get louder in StateCongress

first_imgPublished on SHARE SHARE SHARE EMAIL A day after suspending senior Congressman and Shivajinagar MLA R Roshan Baig, the All-India Congress Committee (AICC) dissolved the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC). The AICC, however, retained State Party President Dinesh Gundu Rao and Working President Eshwar Khandre.A statement issued by AICC general secretary KC Venugopal said, “The AICC has decided to dissolve the present committee of (the) Karnataka Pradesh Congress. The President and Working President remain unchanged.”The sudden move by the party high command has surprised party workers and is being seen as an exercise to revamp the party’s State unit after it lost majority of the Lok Sabha seats and could secure just oneseat in the elections held in April-May. Its coalition partner Janata Dal (Secular), too, got a drubbing in the elections as it could retain just one seat. The BJP swept the State winning 25 of the 28 seats. Immediately after the Lok Sabha elections, KPCC campaign committee president HK Patil had quit the post. This move to dissolve the KPCC comes on the heels of two independent MLAs getting inducted in the Karnataka Cabinet.According to a senior party member, party’s decision comes after workers aired their views in public and voices of dissent grew. A few groups also mounted pressure on the party high command.District, block committeesAddressing reporters, Dinesh Gundu Rao said, “As part of reorganisation, we will be dissolving the district and block committees as well. “It’ll be a total reorganisation of the party at all levels in the State.”Roshan Baig, a four-time MLA representing the Shivajinagar Assembly constituency in Bengaluru, is a senior Muslim leader. His outburst had embarrassed the senior State leaders.He had said: “Siddaramaiah’s arrogance and indulgence in dividing religion and blaming particular religious leaders, and his style of functioning contributed to the party’s debacle in the Assembly elections and now in the Lok Sabha polls.”He had also demanded resignations of Siddaramaiah and Gundu Rao— Gundu Rao for owning the moral responsibility for the poor performance of the party. On Wednesday, Baig told reporters that his comments against the party leaders were the truth and also the opinion of other party workers. “I have not spoken against our AICC President Rahul Gandhi,” he said.

Caste lines drawn Muslim barbers in Moradabad refuse haircuts to Dalits

first_img Sharad Gautam MoradabadJuly 13, 2019UPDATED: July 13, 2019 15:50 IST Photo for representational purpose. (Photo: Reuters)The police and administration in Moradabad district of Uttar Pradesh are having a tough time as some Muslim barbers have refused to cut hair of Dailts from their village. In turn, the Dalits have approached police and the district magistrate alleging caste-based discrimination.Dalits in Peepalsana village under Bhojpur police station in Moradabad district have alleged that barbers in their village are refusing to entertain them at their shops. After receiving their complaints, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Moradabad, Amit Pathak formed a joint team comprising cops and local district officials to investigate the matter. The SSP said if the allegations are found true, action will be taken under relevant laws.THE CASEDalits in Peepalsana village have complained they are facing caste-based discrimination at the hands of barbers, who are Muslims. Following the complaint, all barbers have shut their shops in protest. They have been arguing that if they entertain Dalit customers at their shops, members of their own community will stop visiting them. Peepalsana is reportedly a Muslim majority village.WHAT DALITS SAYDalit elders in the village say they have suffered discrimination in their lives but they want the new generation to live freely. They say this caste-based discrimination must end. Dalits in the village said their children are discriminated when they visit saloons run by Muslims.They say their children are getting educated and in the changing world everyone must be allowed to live with dignity. Dalits said police and district administration have assured them that the matter will be resolved.Kallan, a Dalit elder, said, “They [Muslim barbers] hate us. This is why they have shut their shops. Our sons are not getting married because people look down upon us. They mock at us because we can’t take haircuts in the village saloons. No one wants to marry their daughters to our kids because of this.”Anil Kumar, a Dalit youth, said, “All our relatives humiliate us because we are refused haircuts in our own village. Police negotiated the matter and the barbers agreed that will allow us to avail services. But now they have shut their shops. We have to travel long distances to get haircuts. Our problem must be resolved.”WHAT MUSLIMS SAYSpeaking to India Today TV, Naushad, a local resident, said, “Dalits never used to visit barber shops here. They would take services from a barber shop run by a Dalit in Bhojpur. But now they want to get haircuts here. The barbers were clueless when cops took them to the police station. There they came to know that Dalits have complained against them. I am 45 years old and in my lifetime no Dalit ever took a haircut in our shops. They used to visit the shop in Bhojpur.”He said family members of the barbers are worried as these shops are their only source of income. “If Dalits take haircut and shave in these shops, the towels will become dirty. How will other Muslims take haircuts after that?” he said.Meanwhile, not just the barbers, even other Muslims are opposing the entry of Dalits in these barber shops. They said Dalits should visit the barber shop they have been using all these years.”This is Muslim-majority village with 95 per cent Muslim population. Today they [Dalits] are demanding entry in saloons, tomorrow they will start booking marriage halls. There are some people who want to create chaos here. The village has been peaceful for decades. This matter is being raised with ulterior motives,” said Ali Ahmed.Gulam Gaus, another local resident, said the village has always has been peaceful.”Hindus and Muslims here have never had any enmity. We want peace and won’t let anyone vitiate it. As far as saloon service for Dalits, people here don’t want them to visit the saloons in the village. If they [Dalits] want, they can start their own shop and avail services there,” he said, adding that this issue is being raised unnecessarily and that there are outsiders involved.ALSO READ | Dalits not allowed to touch water, tankers servicing upper caste villages in UP’s BundelkhandALSO READ | Dalit youths stripped, beaten on allegation of theft in UPALSO WATCH | BJP MLA’s daughter who married Dalit boy makes emotional appeal to dad on live TVFor the latest World Cup news, live scores and fixtures for World Cup 2019, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for World Cup news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Naxal wanted in killings of BJP MLA 4 cops gunned down in

first_img Next Press Trust of India DantewadaJuly 12, 2019UPDATED: July 12, 2019 13:55 IST Hurra, the Naxal, was carrying a reward of Rs 5 lakh on his head. (File Photo)A Naxal, allegedly involved in the killings of BJP MLA Bhima Mandavi and four policemen in April, was gunned down in an encounter with security forces in Chhattisgarh’s Sukma district on Friday, police said.He was carrying a reward of Rs 5 lakh on his head, they said.The encounter broke out around 10 am in the forest of Misse Dabba in the Tongpal police station area in Sukma when a team of the District Reserve Guard (DRG) from Dantewada was carrying out an anti-Naxal operation, Dantewada Superintendent of Police Abhishek Pallava told PTI.Security forces had launched the operation two days ago along the border of Dantewada and Sukma districts.When the DRG team was cordoning off Misse Dabba, located around 450km from the state capital Raipur, an encounter broke out with Naxals, he said.After a brief exchange of fire, the Left-wing extremists escaped, Pallava added.During a search at the site, the body of an ultra, identified as Hurra, a member of the Katekalyan Area Committee of Maoists, was recovered, along with a .303 rifle, Pallava said.”Blood stains were found at the spot indicating some more ultras might have been injured or killed in the gun-battle,” he said.Further details are awaited as the search operation was still underway in the area, Pallava added.Hurra, carrying a reward of Rs 5 lakh on his head, was wanted for the killings of Mandavi and four security personnel, the SP said.All five were killed when the vehicle in which they were travelling was blown up by Naxals using an improvised explosive device near Shyamgiri village in Dantewada district on April 9 this year.ALSO READ | Jharkhand: Maoists set 16 vehicles ablaze, assault six labourersALSO WATCH | Brigadier Basant Ponwar reveals how commandos are trained to take on NaxalsFor the latest World Cup news, live scores and fixtures for World Cup 2019, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for World Cup news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

feetStatewideAbout 3 million customers were without powerParticularly in South and Central Florida torrential rain was falling with widespread totals of 6 to 10 inches and pockets up to 10 to 14 inches Numerous flash flood warnings had been issuedAs the storm’s spiral bands walloped Central and Northern Florida the potential for tornadoes arose in the swirling air and the Weather Service issued watches and scores of warningsStorm warnings in effect and predicted surge height and windsHurricane warnings cover all of Florida except the western Panhandle where a tropical storm warning was in effectA storm-surge warning was also issued for much of the Florida Peninsula (except for a small section from North Miami Beach to Jupiter Inlet) and even extended up the Georgia coast into southern South Carolina The Hurricane Center said that this would bring the risk of "dangerous" and "life-threatening" inundationBecause of the shift in the most likely storm track to the west Miami and Southeast Florida were most likely to miss the storm’s intensely destructive core known as the eyewall where winds are strongest Even so because of Irma’s enormous size the entire Florida Peninsula and even the Panhandle were likely to witness damaging winds The National Hurricane Center warned that the storm would bring "life-threatening wind impacts to much of the state"Conditions will continue to deteriorate Sunday night over Florida in the central and north part of the state as Irma chugs up the coast Conditions will slowly improve to the southThrough around very early Monday morning the corridor between Tampa and Orlando would face the storm’s bruntHere’s a guide to what is most likely and where Key West/Key LargoTime frame for worst conditions: Through Sunday afternoonHazard threats: Wind storm surge and rainWind gusts of up to 50 to 70 mph should continue into the eveningA catastrophic storm surge of 5 to 10 feet or more is expected to inundate much of the island chain Heavy rain will add to the water issues as anywhere from 5 to 10 inches of additional rain will fall before the worst of the storm is over Unfortunately the damage potential on the Keys could be landscape-altering after taking a direct hit from this stormMiami/Fort Lauderdale/West Palm BeachTime frame for worst conditions: Through Sunday nightHazard threats: Strong winds tornadoes heavy rainSustained winds of 45 to 70 mph with gusts of 80-plus mph will last well into Sunday eveningSwirling winds at all levels of the atmosphere have also increased the chances of tornadoes developing at any point on Sunday especially in locations right along the water Rainfall totals of four to eight inches or more are expected on Sunday alone which may exacerbate localized flooding With Irma’s last-minute track shift to the west the storm surge won’t be as big of a concern here as it is elsewhere with a two- to four-foot surge expected along much of Florida’s east coastNaples/Fort Myers/Tampa Bay/St PetersburgTime frame for worst conditions: Through Monday morningHazard threats: Storm surge and windIrma’s ultimate destination will be along the west coast of Florida This means the conditions will deteriorate rapidly from Naples to Tampa Bay throughout Sunday afternoon However Irma’s path will take it parallel to the west coast of Florida keeping the entire region engulfed in the dangerous northeast quadrant of the storm where winds are strongest Sustained hurricane force winds and gusts over 100 mph should arrive in Naples Sunday afternoon and up to 75-100 mph in St Petersburg/Tampa Bay between 10 pm and midnight or soThe most dangerous hazard for this region will be the extreme storm surge Nowhere in the entire state will the storm-surge levels be higher than along the gulf-facing coast with storm surge totals of eight to 12 feet and locally up to 15 feet forecast Any coastal city from Tampa Bay south to Naples is at risk with historic flooding (the likes of which haven’t been seen in this area since Hurricane Donna in 1960) threatening thousands of people and structuresOrlando/Central FloridaTime frame for worst conditions: Sunday night through Monday morningHazard threats: Wind rain and tornadoesInland areas won’t escape the effects of Irma The storm is extremely large in size with tropical-storm-force winds

of 70-plus mph lasting from late Sunday night through Monday morningHeavy rain will also cause problems with a general six to 12-plus inches of rain expected by the time the storm is over The threat of tornadoes will increase by Sunday night as well as the storm’s center tracks north along the west coast of FloridaJacksonville/Daytona BeachTime frame for worst conditions: Sunday evening through Monday afternoonHazard threats: Rain tornadoes windThe northeast portion of Florida will be spared the worst of Irma but won’t escape unscathed Sustained tropical-force winds of 40 to 55 mph will overspread the area from Daytona Beach to Jacksonville by Sunday evening with the worst winds (gusts up to 70 mph) occurring overnight Heavy rain will be a story line here as six to 10-plus inches of rain is expected to fall in a relatively short periodAs with other parts of the state the tornado threat will peak overnight on Sunday as Irma’s storm center tracks northwardStorm-surge values will be elevated (two to four feet) but should result in only minor to moderate coastal floodingPotential effects on Georgia and the southeastern United StatesGeorgia/Atlanta/South CarolinaTime frame for worst conditions: Monday morning through Tuesday morningHazard threats: Wind rain and at the coast storm surgeHurricane warnings extend well into Georgia covering over half of the state Parts of southern South Carolina also are under a hurricane warning with Irma poised to maintain its hurricane-force strength for several hours after landfallSustained tropical force winds of 25 to 45 mph will spread over Georgia from south to north starting late Sunday night The strongest sustained winds (40 to 50 mph) with gusts of 60-plus mph will move in on early Monday morning lasting through Monday evening This includes Atlanta which is under a tropical-storm warning where sustained winds of 25 to 40 mph with gusts up to 60 mph will occur from about 10 pm Sunday night to about 5 pm Monday afternoon This could lead to downed trees and outagesHeavy rain is also expected with storm totals of six to 10 inches forecast the bulk of which should fall MondayStorm surge along the Georgia/South Carolina coast will be a hazard as well with the Hurricane Center predicting a surge of four to six feet Of particular concern is the duration of the storm surge Persistent onshore winds will extend the surge component here with elevated water levels potentially lasting up to 36 hoursIrma’s path so farAt 3:35 pm Sunday Irma had made its second US landfall of the day over Marco Island where a wind gust of 130 mph was reportedEarlier the storm officially made its initial US landfall at Cudjoe Key at 9:10 am as a Category 4 hurricane Winds over the Keys raged gusting to at least 94 mph in Key West (before the wind instrument failed) and up to 120 mph in Big Pine Key Witness video showed the rising storm surge flooding Key West streetsBefore its encounter with the Keys Irma made landfall on the north coast of Cuba as a Category 5 hurricane just after 9 pm Friday with maximum sustained winds of 160 mph It became that country’s first Category 5 hurricane since 1924 Fueled by the extremely warm ocean temperatures Irma reintensified to the maximum hurricane classification level after weakening slightly on Friday afternoonAs it scraped Cuba’s north coast early Saturday it produced a sustained wind gust of 118 mph and a gust to 159 mph was reported at Falla Cuba in the eyewall of the hurricaneOn Friday before making landfall along Cuba’s north-central coast Irma passed north of Haiti and then between Cuba’s northeast coast and the Central BahamasThursday evening the center of the storm passed very close to the Turks and Caicos producing potentially catastrophic Category 5 winds The storm surge was of particular concern as the water had the potential to rise 16 to 20 feet above normally dry land in coastal sections north of the storm center causing extreme inundationA devastating storm surge and destructive winds had also probably battered the southeastern Bahamas near Great Inagua IslandThrough early Thursday the storm had battered islands from Puerto Rico to the northern Lesser AntillesWhile the center of Irma passed just north of Puerto Rico late Wednesday a wind gust of 63 mph was clocked in San Juan early Wednesday evening and more than 900000 people were reported to be without power In Culebra Puerto Rico a small island 17 miles east of the main island a wind gust registered 111 mph in the afternoonOn Wednesday afternoon the storm’s eye had moved over Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands and its southern eyewall raked St Thomas in the US Virgin IslandsEarly Wednesday afternoon a wind gust to 131 mph was clocked on Buck Island and 87 mph on St Thomas in the US Virgin IslandsOn Tuesday night and Wednesday morning the hurricane passed directly over Barbuda and St Martin in the northern Leeward Islands the strongest hurricane recorded in that region and tied with the 1935 Florida Keys hurricane as the strongest Atlantic storm to strike landAs Barbuda took a direct hit the weather station there clocked a wind gust to 155 mph before it went

history exceeding the likes of Katrina Andrew and Camille – whose winds peaked at 175 mphAmong the most intense storms on record it trails only Hurricane Allen in 1980 which had winds of 190 mph It is tied for second-most intense with Hurricane Wilma in 2005 Hurricane Gilbert in 1988 and the 1935 Florida Keys hurricaneThe storm maintained maximum wind speeds of at least 180 mph for 37 hours longer than any storm on Earth on record passing Super Typhoon Haiyan the previous record-holder (24 hours)Late Tuesday its pressure dropped to 914 millibars (the lower the pressure the stronger the storm)
