River Forecast Centre says snowpacks still high across BC

first_imgVICTORIA, B.C. — Officials with the B.C. River Forecast Centre say that though the Peace Region is seeing lower than normal levels, snowpacks across the province – including those near Fort Nelson – are extremely high.David Campbell with the River Forecast Centre said that on average, the provincial snowpack levels averaged 169 percent of normal on May 1st, an increase of around 30 percent since April 1st. The snowpack level is currently at 84 percent in the Peace River watershed, though the snowpack in the Liard watershed is 144 percent of normal.Campbell said that much of the snow in the mid-elevation levels has been melting for the past 10 days, with the warm weather expected to increase melting at higher levels. He explained that the rain forecast to fall across much of the Southern Interior later this week luckily won’t be heading to the Peace Region, meaning the region won’t see as much potential flooding compared to areas in the Okanagan and the Cariboo. Campbell however did not rule out the potential for more intense runoff action in the Peace, saying that the flooding experienced in the South Peace two years ago largely occurred because of a combination of melting snowpacks and heavy rain.last_img read more

Bloomberg: Morocco a Top 22 Clean Energy Investor in 2018

Rabat – Morocco has invested $2.8 billion in renewable energy and is one of the 22 countries that have invested more than $2 billion in clean energy according, to a report by Bloomberg New Energy Finance (NEF). Bloomberg NEF, a clean energy data provider, researching and reporting on energy trends at the global level, published the report, relayed by Moroccan media, last month.According to Bloomberg NEF, Morocco’s Noor Midelt project was the largest major solar project financed worldwide last year. The cost of the project has been estimated at $2.4 billion. Clean energy slowdownGlobal investment in clean energy reached $332.1 billion last year, down 8 percent for 2017. The drop is due to an 24 percent decrease in commitments in favour of solar energy, NEF’s date showed.The investment scale allocated to solar energy fell by 24 percent in 2018 compared to 2017. Despite this decrease in investments, photovoltaic capacity reached a record high—over 100 gigawatts for the first time.Bloomberg NEF noted that there have been strong contrasts between the clean energy sectors and investment trends.Wind energy investment jumped 3 percent to $128.6 billion, whereas solar energy investment fell to $128.6 billion. The contrast, NEF noted, was due to a sharp drop in capital costs.As a result, the global benchmark for the installation costs of a megawatt of photovoltaic capacity fell by 12 percent in 2018, as manufacturers reduced their selling prices in response to the oversupply of solar panels on the global market, concludes Bloomberg NEF.Morocco’s strong potential for new energyMorocco has a strong renewable energy potential given its varied geography.In Ouarzazate, central Morocco, the annual averages of daily global horizontal irradiation vary from 3.86 to 7.85 kilowatt hours per square meter per day, or 7.9 to 11.2 hours of sunshine per day on average. In terms of wind power potential, the annual average wind speed at 10 meters in the Tangier area, north eastern Morocco, is 10 meters per second. For the Dakhla area, in the Laayoune-Sakia El Hamra region, it varies between 7 and 8.5 meters per second. read more

UN expert voices deep concern at extreme violence in Somalia

Extreme violence in Somalia, attacks and threats against the media and a lack of humanitarian access in the strife-torn country, where more than 700,000 civilians have been forced to flee their homes, remain matters of deep concern, according to an independent United Nations expert. Independent Expert on the situation of human rights in Somalia Ghanim Alnajjar, who visited the Horn of Africa country last week, said his meetings UN staff, representatives of the international community, Somali civil society, clan and tribal leaders, and senior officials of the Transitional Federal Institutions (TFI) underscored the continued deterioration in the human rights situation. Civilians faced severe violations by all parties to the conflict including of the right to life, disappearance, torture, recruitment as child combatants and sexual and gender-based violence, as well as continued obstacles to the right to food, health and education. Mr. Alnajjar discussed the humanitarian needs of the civilian population, including the more than 700,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs), and threats and attacks on aid workers, underlining once again the importance of preserving “humanitarian space.” Journalists and human rights defenders continue to live in an increasing climate of fear and intimidation, he noted. Since January, seven journalists have been killed and dozens more threatened into silence for their work. Several have fled Mogadishu, the capital, he said. Citing the lack of separation of powers in the TFI, he condemned the arrest of the President of the Supreme Court, Yusuf Ali Harun, and another judge as well as the dismissals of Attorney-General Abdullahi Dahir and his deputy, saying these steps disregarded rules and procedures and clearly violated the independence of the judiciary. Mr. Alnajjar also voiced concern at the potential negative effects of a conflict between neighbouring countries and highlighted new calls for the Security Council to establish a UN peacekeeping operation to further stabilize the country and allow for a phased withdrawal of Ethiopian forces. He was briefed about the intense violence and allegations of serious violations of human rights in Mogadishu over the past nine months since the TFI, backed by Ethiopian troops, expelled Islamist groups from the capital.The UN High Commissioner for Refugees UNHCR reported today that it had begun distributing much-needed relief supplies 24,000 people in Afgooye, 30 kilometres west of Mogadishu, many of whom had fled intensified violence over the last two weeks. Plastic sheeting, blankets and jerry cans are being distributed over a three-day period. Nearly 65,000 people have fled the volatile capital since the beginning of June, 11,000 of them in September. Although the TFI said in May insurgents had been ousted after three months of fighting which uprooted almost 400,000 civilians, ongoing violence sparked a second wave in June. Only 125,000 people have returned to Mogadishu. More than 40,000 residents of Mogadishu have been displaced in Afgooye since February, and the 22 IDP settlements are feeling the pressure of the new arrivals. “Our staff report that families are still fleeing Mogadishu every day due to an increase in violence,” UNHCR spokesperson Jennifer Pagonis told a news briefing in Geneva today, reporting a new exodus after the TFI ordered residents of three northern districts to vacate their homes, claiming that they were backing insurgents after several soldiers and their commander were killed in a fight with insurgents there. Mogadishu is now divided into two parts, she said. The northern part is becoming deserted as residents flee clashes between the Ethiopian-backed TFI forces and insurgents, whereas the southern part is calm. The streets of northern Mogadishu are so empty during the day that only a handful of people can be seen, a UNHCR staff member reported. The Bakara market, once one of the biggest in East Africa, is barely functioning as it is regularly closed to vehicles because of insecurity such as fighting, assassinations and killings linked to robbery. “People are scared to walk close to the market with only the most desperate still going, risking their lives to sell a few vegetables as they have no other way of keeping their children from starving,” the staffer said. Somalia has been riven by factional fighting and has had no functioning central government since Muhammad Siad Barre’s regime was toppled in 1991. 28 September 2007Extreme violence in Somalia, attacks and threats against the media and a lack of humanitarian access in the strife-torn country, where more than 700,000 civilians have been forced to flee their homes, remain matters of deep concern, according to an independent United Nations expert. read more

UN and SouthEast Asian bloc discuss enhanced collaboration on common priorities

28 September 2011Top United Nations officials and ministers from the South-East Asian bloc known as ASEAN have discussed how to enhance collaboration between the two bodies, as well as issues such as disaster management and the peaceful settlement of disputes. Yesterday’s meeting at UN Headquarters, held on the margins of the high-level debate of the General Assembly’s 66th session, comes less than two months before the next ASEAN-UN Summit that will be held in Bali, Indonesia, on 19 November.The meeting – attended by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, General Assembly President Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser and Surin Pitsuwan, Secretary-General of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations – discussed the UN’s global and regional priorities, as well as the priorities for the current Assembly session, according to a press release issued after the meeting. ASEAN commended the priorities outlined by them, including the theme for the current Assembly session – “The Role of Mediation in the Peaceful Settlement of Disputes” – as well as others proposed by Mr. Ban in the areas of disaster management, peaceful settlement of disputes, and enhancing common prosperity, all of which coincided with efforts already being undertaken by the group. The meeting also discussed various regional and global issues, particularly those of common concern and interest to ASEAN and the UN that are on the Assembly’s current agenda. These include climate change, disaster management, maritime security and anti-piracy, conflict resolution, global financial crisis, sustainable development and the global anti-poverty targets known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).The UN and ASEAN hold the meeting each year in conjunction with the opening of the General Assembly’s main session. read more

WatchUS lawmakers introduce bipartisan bills targeting Huawei ZTE other Chinese telecom companies

WASHINGTON — A bipartisan group of U.S. lawmakers introduced bills on Wednesday that would ban the sale of U.S. chips or other components to Huawei Technologies Co Ltd , ZTE Corp or other Chinese telecommunications companies that violate U.S. sanctions or export control laws.Senator Tom Cotton and Representative Mike Gallagher, both Republicans, along with Senator Chris Van Hollen and Representative Ruben Gallego, both Democrats, introduced the measures, which would require the president to ban the export of U.S. components to any Chinese telecommunications company that violates U.S. sanctions or export control laws.The bills specifically cite ZTE and Huawei, both of which are viewed with suspicion in the United States because of fears that their switches and other gear could be used to spy on Americans. Both have also been accused of failing to respect U.S. sanctions on Iran.Huawei is the world’s biggest producer of telecommunications equipment. Huawei’s founder breaks silence to deny U.S. spying claims, calls Trump ‘a great president’ Huawei pledges to do ‘whatever is required’ to meet Canada’s security standards for 5G networks Canada Goose delays Beijing store opening at last minute as Huawei protest mounts “Huawei is effectively an intelligence-gathering arm of the Chinese Communist Party whose founder and CEO was an engineer for the People’s Liberation Army,” Cotton wrote in a statement. “If Chinese telecom companies like Huawei violate our sanctions or export control laws, they should receive nothing less than the death penalty — which this denial order would provide.”Huawei’s founder, Ren Zhengfei, denied this week that his company was used by the Chinese government to spy.Canada detained Ren’s daughter, Meng Wanzhou, who is Huawei’s chief financial officer, in December at the request of U.S. authorities investigating an alleged scheme to use the global banking system to evade U.S. sanctions against Iran.For its part, ZTE agreed last year to pay a US$1-billion fine to the United States that had been imposed because the company breached a U.S. embargo on trade with Iran. As part of the agreement, the U.S. lifted a ban in place since April that prevented ZTE from buying the U.S. components it heavily relies on to make smartphones and other devices.© Thomson Reuters 2019 read more

2017 Big Ten football preview Iowa Hawkeyes

Iowa’s Josey Jewell (43) tackles Wyoming’s Avante Cox during the 2017 season opener on Sep. 2. The Hawkeyes went on to defeat the Cowboys, 24-3. Credit: Courtesy of Ben Smith | The Daily IowanLocation: Iowa City, Iowa 2016 record: 8-5 (6-3) Head coach: Kirk Ferentz Current record: 2-0 All time record vs. OSU: 14-46What has happened thus far in 2017 The Hawkeyes outlasted in-state rival Iowa State, 44-41, in overtime in Week 2. In its season opener, Iowa’s defense stymied Wyoming’s offense, led by likely first-round pick Josh Allen, and the Hawkeyes won, 24-3. Impact Player While senior linebacker Josey Jewell is a menace, the Hawkeyes’ inexperience on offense places greater importance on running back Akrum Wadley. The senior rushed for 1,081 yards, averaging 6.4 yards per carry, in 2016. Through two games, Wadley has 234 rushing yards and a touchdown. Wadley can be dynamic in space, which he showcased late against Iowa State when he turned a short catch out of the backfield into a 46-yard, game-tying touchdown, made possible by three broken tackles and a slick stutter-step.Strengths Because some things never change, Iowa’s running game will be sturdy behind an experienced offensive line and the legs of Wadley and James Butler, a graduate transfer from Nevada who owns back-to-back 1,300-plus rushing yard seasons. The O-line was dented in Week 2, with right tackle Ike Boettger lost for the year, but because the Hawkeyes often substitute linemen to keep players fresh and develop young talent, they should have enough depth to overcome Boettger’s injury. Jewell, a preseason All-American, leads a defense that returns six of last year’s front seven. The Hawkeyes should be stout against the run and put pressure on opposing offensive lines. The reason they limited Wyoming’s Allen to 174 passing yards was because Allen had little time to throw. Weaknesses The Hawkeyes are inexperienced at quarterback, receiver and defensive back. Whether Iowa is a legitimate threat to win the Big Ten West or is its usual eight-win self comes down to the performance of those units. Sophomore quarterback Nate Stanley showed promise against Iowa State, throwing for 333 yards and five scores, but it’s a small sample size.  Junior college transfer wideout Nick Easley has 11 catches so far, giving Iowa another target alongside senior receiver Matt Vandeberg, whose 2016 was cut short by a broken foot. Even so, the Hawkeyes lack a game-changing playmaker on the outside. Safety Miles Taylor, a three-year starter, is the only returner in the secondary. Other players, like sophomore Manny Rugamba, have seen the field, but not consistently. If the secondary is at least average, the Hawkeye front seven is good enough to handle the rest. read more

Garda reps say martial law was threatened Taoiseach says it was never

first_imgDetective Chief Superintendent Michael O’Sullivan sought to clarify the situation on RTÉ radio this morning, stating the first mention he heard of martial law was “in the headlines”.He stressed it had, at no stage, appeared in the garda contingency plan for today.“”It never ever appeared. There was no need to put the army on the streets. We have a perfectly good contingency plan and there was no need for it”.Though he said it was neither needed nor included in plans, he did not state whether garda management had never discussed the possibility with the GRA’s officer board.Similarly, Taoiseach Enda Kenny said martial law had never been part of the plan – though he did not have any representative at the meeting between garda management and the GRA.Speaking to reporters in Dublin earlier, he said:I met with the Minister for Justice, and the Garda Commissioner and senior garda management and the Minister for Public Expenditure on Monday and, while contingency arrangements are a matter for the Commissioner in the context of the day-to-day running of the gardaí, I can assure you and confirm to you martial law that the question of martial law, ie the army being on the streets of this country, was never contemplated and never raised.Though there are no specific provisions in Irish law covering martial law, there is nothing to stop a government from asking the Defence Forces to provide a policing service.Assistant professor at law in Trinity College David Kenny told TheJournal.ie:“There has long been a conventional arrangement where the defence forces assist with law enforcement, which is known as “aid to the civil power”. Most commonly in Ireland, this has been for guarding the transit of money, prison security, sensitive prisoners transfer, protection for state visits etc.“The courts have commented in passing that the Defence Forces providing such aid is an acceptable arrangement and to be expected. However, this has always been supplementing – not supplanting – the role of the gardaí. Using the defence forces as primary law enforcement – rather than backing and aiding civilian authorities in particular instances – would be something else.”He added that since the Constitution is silent on the question of policing, “there is some vagueness about the division between civilian and military powers”.I am not aware of any statutory provision that either enables or specifically prevents use of the defence forces as primary civilian law enforcement, and it would be difficult to say what the legal status of such an action would be. However, it would greatly exceed the long-held convention about the limits of using the defence forces for civilian law enforcement.Whatever happened at that meeting yesterday morning, it caused badly-timed tension between members of the association’s top table, which has created serious uncertainty about how their members on the ground will vote.They are expected to be balloted as soon as next week, though results are unlikely before the next planned strike day.Read: Poll: Was the GRA right to call off the Garda strike?>Read: Garda strike: Here’s the deal that’s being offered to gardaí> By Michelle Hennessy Source: TippFMNews/Twitter http://jrnl.ie/3063037 #GRA asking these units not to take part in strike pic.twitter.com/S7JgpwTWyB— Michelle Hennessy (@michellehtweet) November 3, 2016 IT CAME DOWN to the wire with the garda pay dispute last night, with the decision made late in the game by both representative associations to defer their action and ballot members.While the general executive of the Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors (AGSI) displayed a united front, the top table of the Garda Representative Association (GRA) was split in its decision with a 20-17 vote result.The split vote followed a row among the central executive committee over a request that gardaí on a number of units report for duty on the strike day today.

Tree of life

first_imgIt’s strange to think that a tragedy was the catalyst behind the dynasty that has seen four generations of George Diakomichalis’ family involved in the world of pastries. While George’s great-great-grandfather was out on a sponge fishing trip he drowned, forcing his then nine-year-old son to work in order to provide for the family. The young lad was sent to Russia in 1890 to work with a Kalymnian family of pastry chef’s. He learnt the trade, even went to France for a year to expand his knowledge and techniques, and then returned to the island of Kalymnos to open the first family patisserie in 1918. The rest is more than history, as the original tragedy has spawned family businesses in the US, in Greece and the Adelaide store Kalymnos Pastries. George initially tried to fight his fate, opting for a job at the Commonwealth Bank but after four years of number-crunching, he knew that he couldn’t deny it anymore; as he says himself “it’s in my blood”. In 1995, George travelled to Kalymnos to learn the craft: traditional methods that had been passed down from generation to generation, then later that year opened Kalymnos Pastries in Torrensville South Australia. A wide-eyed 23-year-old, this was George’s first exposure to business. “It was a shock to the system,” George recalls of the early days of Kalymnos Pastries. “The first six months were working 18 hour days and it was very tough. But luckily I had the support of my family – as there were some trying times working those hours.”In those days, it was just George and his mum, churning out quality pastries upholding age-old techniques and recipes. George said although it took its toll physically, they were lucky to be inundated with orders when they first opened “It was tough, a big commitment. At the beginning we did everything ourselves; I used to be the chef and do deliveries. Slowly, slowly we took more people on, more staff and things gradually fell into place.” The store has been up-and-running for 17 years and features all the Greek classic delicacies like kataifi, revani, baklava, floyeres, karithopita, bougatsa – the list goes on. Cheesecakes, muffins and biscuits can also be found on the premises ensuring there is something available for everyone’s sweet tooth. But if savoury’s your flavour, try the spanakopita, tiropita and vegetable and cheese triangles. Kalymnos Pastries is a reflection of George’s vision and heritage. From the homely shop front, to the friendly staff – everything here is warm and inviting. “We want everyone to experience the tradition of the food, like people are eating home cooked food from their parents and grandparents. We are very proud of the home style produce.” His strong desire to ensure his produce is a reflection and homage to his family baking traditions means that the quality control at Kalymnos Pastries is second-to-none. That passion and steadfast vision that George posses filters through to every aspect of the business. “I have a strong vision of the way I want this business to run,” George says matter-of-factly. “I handpick my staff based on character, they need to be able to follow the lead and to make sure that everything is made using traditional methods. We pride ourselves on quality and freshness and I am not scared of wastage but we know how to manage our products to make sure we don’t have too much waste. We always make sure our customer service matches our product and our cleanliness. And we don’t skimp on produce, we never use cheaper ingredients,” explains George. George admits that the business was the only path for him to take in life, and now as we talk, he says he couldn’t imagine life without it. “It’s surreal, I still remember the first day, in some ways it feels like it was yesterday, but in other ways it feels like it’s been forever. I am very, very proud of what I have achieved along with the help and support of my family, and my fantastic staff.” And the success of the business?“If you give someone something you love, the rest takes care of itself.”Kalymnos Pastries, 3/158 Henley Beach Rd, Torrensville, South Australia, (08) 8443 9333 Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Une météorite pourrait livrer des informations sur une éventuelle vie sur Mars

first_imgUne météorite pourrait livrer des informations sur une éventuelle vie sur MarsDes géologues de l’université de Hawaii ont étudié une météorite qui se serait formée sur Mars il y a un milliard d’années. Grâce à elle, ces chercheurs espèrent pouvoir déterminer si la planète rouge a un jour été en mesure d’abriter de la vie.De son petit nom MIL 03346, la météorite Miller Range 03346, de la taille d’une balle de tennis, a été découverte en 2003 en Antarctique, dans le Miller Range. Cette météorite fait ainsi partie des centaines d’autres retrouvées dans cette région. Mais elle présente une particularité non négligeable : c’est une nakhlite, autrement dit, une météorite qui provient de Mars et qui se serait détachée de la planète il y a des millions d’années de cela.Grâce à elle, les scientifiques espèrent donc en apprendre davantage sur la présence éventuelle, il y a un milliard d’années, d’une vie sur Mars. En réalité, la nouvelle étude qui a été menée sur MIL 03346 ne permet pas de donner une réponse claire à cette question. Néanmoins, elle ouvre la voie à de futures recherches qui devraient permettre d’y répondre un jour. “Le problème est que la plupart des météorites originaires de Mars sont arrivées sur Terre depuis si longtemps qu’elles ont maintenant les caractéristiques de la vie terrienne, ce qui masque les éléments qui pourraient nous éclairer sur le temps qu’elles ont passé sur Mars”, a relevé le Professeur Michael Velbel de l’Université du Michigan cité par Sci-News.Selon l’étude publiée dans la revue Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta, ces météorites possèdent indéniablement des éléments d’altérations dues à l’eau qui montrent des conditions rendant une planète habitable. En revanche, il est plus compliqué de distinguer si ces éléments proviennent du temps passé sur Terre ou s’ils existaient déjà avant son arrivée. “La Terre, est manifestement habitable. Aussi, si nous pouvions d’une manière prouver que la signature présente sur la météorite existait avant qu’elle arrive sur Terre, cela nous en dirait plus au sujet de Mars”, a expliqué le co-auteur de l’étude. Des échantillons à ramener de Mars À lire aussiBoisson, météorite et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 5 septembreAujourd’hui, l’équipe du Pr Velbel espère donc “fournir davantage de profondeur et une vue un peu plus large que ce qu’ont apporté de précédents travaux au sujet des deux types d’altérations liées à l’eau – celles qui ont eu lieu sur Terre et celles qui ont eu lieu sur Mars”. Pour l’heure, des analyses précédemment menées sur des météorites originaires de Mars ainsi que des données dévoilées par des satellites et des rovers ont suggéré que de l’eau avait bien existé un jour sur Mars.Néanmoins, “jusqu’à qu’une mission martienne ne ramène avec succès des échantillons de la planète, les études minéralogiques de processus sur Mars continueront à dépendre des données obtenues à partir de météorites”, a poursuivi le spécialiste. Mais avec la multiplication des études, les spécialistes parviendront peut-être un jour à répondre à la question fatidique : Mars a t-elle un jour abrité de la vie ?  Le 7 mai 2013 à 16:44 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Requin le Japon compte rejeter les nouvelles règles de protection

first_imgRequin : le Japon compte rejeter les nouvelles règles de protectionLe gouvernement japonais a décidé de rejeter la nouvelle régulation de protection de cinq espèces de requin décidée en mars dernier par la Convention sur le commerce international des espèces menacées (Cites). Déjà vivement critiqué en raison de la campagne de chasse de baleines qu’il mène chaque année, le Japon est de nouveau sous le feu des critiques, cette fois-ci à cause des requins. Selon une annonce faite vendredi dernier, le gouvernement nippon a en effet décidé de rejeter la nouvelle régulation de protection de certaines espèces de requin adoptée en mars dernier par les 178 pays membres de la Convention sur le commerce international des espèces menacées (Cites).Ce renforcement des règles a été voté en séance plénière et concerne cinq espèces de requin, le requin océanique à pointe blanche (ou requin longimane), trois requins-marteaux (halicorne, grand et lisse) et le requin-taupe. Lors de la réunion à Bangkok, le Japon, ainsi que la Chine avaient tenté de bloquer le vote mais ils n’y étaient pas parvenus. Aujourd’hui, le gouvernement nippon a donc décidé de camper sur ses positions en émettant de nouvelles réserves. “Pour le gouvernement japonais, ces espèces doivent être gérées par les organisations de pêche existantes” et non par la Cites, a ainsi expliqué un diplomate nippon cité par l’AFP. Un marché florissant en Asie À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Il faut dire que la pêche aux requins représente un marché très florissant en Asie où les ailerons des squales sont revendus à prix d’or pour confectionner des plats cuisinés tels que des soupes. Ce succès a notamment conduit à la naissance d’une pratique très critiquée à travers le monde, le finning. Elle consiste à pêcher les requins avant de leur couper l’aileron et de les rejeter à l’eau ainsi amputés. Ces dernières années, cette pratique a connu une recrudescence inquiétante que les pays peinent voire rechignent à enrayer. Selon l’ONG Traffic, le commerce d’ailerons est estimé à plus de 480 millions de dollars par an. Et environ 100 millions de requins sont tués chaque année dans le monde, d’après l’organisation de l’ONU pour l’alimentation et l’agriculture (FAO). Elle estime que 90% de la population de l’animal a disparu en un siècle.

But what happens when an actual frog needs to find its soulmate?A rare Sehuencas water frog nicknamed Romeo has being living alone inside an aquarium at Cochabamba Natural History Museum in Bolivia for 10 years. It was thought Romeo might be the last Sehuencas water frog in existence, so last year Global Wildlife Conservation created an amusing dating profile for the frog hoping to raise awareness about his plight.Luckily, Romeo’s Juliet may have been found. During an expedition in a Bolivian cloud forest, scientists located and captured five Sehuencas water frogs, a mix of male and female, in a stream hoping to breed them and reintroduce the frogs back into their natural habitat.  Tags 35 Photos Teresa Camacho Badani — chief of herpetology at the Museo de Historia Natural Alcide d’Orbigny in Cochabamba City — headed up the expedition and seems optimistic for an opposites-attract kind of match between Romeo and one of the newly discovered water frogs. Her nickname? Juliet, naturally.   juliet3Enlarge ImageThe lovely Juliet awaits her Romeo.  Robin Moore/Global Wildlife Conservation “While Romeo is very shy, Juliet is not at all,” Badani said in a Q&A on the Global Wildlife Conservation site. “So we think she will make an excellent match for Romeo. She’s “very strong, and swims very fast. She looks great and is healthy.” Luckily, there’s a backup plan if the pair doesn’t make a love connection. “If the two don’t click, we have some additional pairs who can breed and help save their species from extinction,” Badani said.  0 But before any matchmaking can begin, the recently captured frogs are in quarantine at the museum’s conservation center to be treated preventatively against a deadly infectious disease called chytridiomycosis that’s threatening the lives of amphibians around the world.Then finally, Romeo and Juliet will meet in hopes they will bond and produce offspring that can be placed in the wild. last_img read more

Huawei phones can no longer preinstall Facebook Instagram or WhatsApp

first_img What is going on between Huawei and the US? 23 Photos Facebook is apparently taking action against Huawei. / Getty Images Facebook has slapped Huawei with yet another ban by no longer letting the embattled Chinese phone marker preinstall its apps.Huawei phone owners will still be able to download and update Facebook’s apps, but fresh Huawei devices can’t come with Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram apps preinstalled, as previously reported by Reuters.”We are reviewing the Commerce Department’s final rule and the more recently issued temporary general license and taking steps to ensure compliance,” a Facebook spokesperson said in an emailed statement confirming the move. 1 iPhone XS Max vs. Huawei P30 Pro sample photos Now playing: Watch this: In May, President Donald Trump signed an executive order effectively banning Huawei from US communications networks, because of national security concerns about Huawei’s close relationship with the Chinese government. Soon afterward, Google cut Huawei off from future Android updates, before temporarily resuming work.The US is also urging its allies not to do business with Huawei. The company has consistently denied that its products are used for spying, and its chairman said this week that Huawei is willing to sign a “no-spy agreement” with the US.Huawei didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.First published at 1:44 a.m. PT.Updated at 3:10 a.m. PT: Adds Facebook statement.

Physicists experimentally demonstrate oneway quantum steering

Citation: Physicists experimentally demonstrate one-way quantum steering (2012, September 17) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-09-physicists-experimentally-one-way-quantum.html Journal information: Nature Photonics To demonstrate that the answer is yes, the physicists here entangled two laser beams that they prepared using an intricate system that involved mixing the beams with two vacuum modes. One output mode was sent to Alice and one to Bob. If the beams were prepared with the vacuum contribution in a certain intermediate range, the researchers observed that Alice could make a measurement on her side that influenced Bob’s measurements on his side – but Bob’s measurements did not influence Alice’s. In other words, they observed one-way steering.However, changing the vacuum contribution could change the results. The researchers found that, for a vacuum contribution smaller than 39%, two-way steering was allowed. And for a vacuum contribution greater than 70%, no steering was allowed. In between these values, only Alice could steer.”From the very beginning in 1935, EPR and Schrödinger focused on the question of whether a single subsystem (of an entangled state) can be described by a classical model, given some measurement results on the other subsystem,” coauthor Roman Schnabel of the University of Hannover and the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics told Phys.org. “In our paper, we produce for the first time an entangled state that allows for a purely classical description of one subsystem but not of the other. Our result supports the relevance of the original question by EPR and Schrödinger since we demonstrate that the answer is more diverse than one might expect.”As he explained further, the results also provide insight into the extent to which quantum mechanics differs from classical mechanics, one of the fundamental questions in physics.”Our experiment pinpoints the effect of decoherence,” he said. “Our state is produced by discarding information from one subsystem (due to the extra vacuum contribution). The one-sided information loss results in the new situation that this subsystem can be described by a classical model whereas the other subsystem still requires a quantum model. There is a long debate on how the transition from a distinct (entangled) quantum system to a system that can be described by a classical model actually happens. Our experiment is thus a nice model system that shows how decoherence produces the transition from the quantum to the classical world.”The researchers expect that the experiment can be extended to a tripartite situation involving a third party, Charlie. In the current experiment, one output mode of the light beam was dumped, but if it had been sent to Charlie, the researchers predict that Alice could also steer Charlie simultaneously to steering Bob. Neither Bob nor Charlie could steer anyone.As the physicists explain, one-way steering is yet another counterintuitive effect of quantum mechanics. They explain that one-way steering leads to the peculiar situation in which two experimenters performing measurements on the same shared state reach different conclusions. Future research into this implication and others could have applications in areas such as quantum key distribution for secure communication and information science in general. One-way steering occurs when the second vacuum mode used to generate the steering states is between 39% and 70% (white region). When the value for one steering direction is less than 1.0 (red histogram) and the value for the other steering direction is above 1.0 (blue histogram), one-way steering occurs.

This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed in whole or part without the express written permission of PhysOrg.com. Because of the two different roles, physicists have wondered about the possibility of one-way steering. That is, are there any physical states that Alice could send that allow her to steer Bob, but not vice versa? (Phys.org)—When Einstein described the interaction between two distant objects as “spooky interaction at a distance,” he was referring to the quantum phenomenon called steering. Steering can occur in strongly entangled systems and implies a direction between the two parties involved, while entanglement without steering generally has no direction. In 1992, physicists experimentally demonstrated steering in both directions – that is, both parties could steer each other. Now for the first time, physicists have demonstrated steering in one direction only, a feat that gives new insight into the quantum world and that could have applications in quantum information. More information: Vitus Händchen, et al. “Observation of one-way Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen steering.” Nature Photonics. DOI: 10.1038/NPHOTON.2012.202 The physicists, from the University of Hannover’s Center for Quantum Engineering and Space-Time Research-QUEST, the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute), and the Institute for Theoretical Physics, all in Hannover, Germany, have published their study in a recent issue of Nature Photonics.As the scientists explain, steering forms the core of the famous Einstein-Podolosky-Rosen (EPR) argument put forth in 1935. As an attempt to criticize quantum mechanics, the three scientists theoretically pointed out an odd effect of two strongly correlated particles: measuring a quantity (such as the position or the momentum) of particle A will cause the related quantity of particle B to become certain, even though the Heisenberg Uncertainty Relation predicts a minimum quantum uncertainty for individual systems. This odd effect exists even if the particles do not come in contact with each other. To explain this finding, Einstein, Podolosky, and Rosen assumed that the outcome of all possible measurements must be encoded in both particles as a hidden parameter, and that quantum mechanics is incomplete because it does not account for this parameter. Otherwise, the instantaneous interaction would conflict with the theory of relativity.However, other physicists of the day saw that the interaction was actually a new quantum phenomenon. Erwin Schrödinger was the first to call the effect “entanglement” as well as describe its stronger form, steering. In steering, the two parties (Alice and Bob) have certain roles that are not interchangeable. Specifically, Alice has the role of choosing an observable to be measured, which somehow changes the states in Bob’s system. If Bob chooses the observable to be measured, then the roles would change, and he would be the one steering Alice. last_img read more

With love from China

With love from China

first_imgA sophisticated, stylised and lyrical opera, The Peony Pavilion meant for the connoisseurs rated as one of China’s best-loved classical operas was staged at the Capital’s Sirifort auditorium on December 12.  The legendary play has been brought to India by Swati Bhise, artistic director of BraviaSadir Theatre Festival Production who is an acclaimed Bharatnatyam dancer and choreographer.  Her aim is to promote art and culture between the two neighboring countries and develop friendly relations between the two nations. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The peony love attracted an audience which included corporate honchos, bureaucrats, distinguished members of Delhi society and young students from art and cultural institutions in Delhi. Swati Bhise, said, “Art is the finest way to bridge the cultural gap between two great powers. Theatre and Art give us a deep understanding of the existing political, social and economic conditions of a country. It also gives an insight into the thought process of an entire ethnic group. This is a perfect platform to go global and continue our own personal growth and get better understanding of different cultures. I am happy that it was so well received in Mumbai and Delhi. The audience is evolved and understands sophisticated art forms such as Opera”. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe Peony Pavilion showcased a complicated love story which was set in the last days of the Southern Song Dynasty, which lasted from 1127 to 1279 AD. It is hailed as the “mother” of a hundred opera forms. In its original form, the play, traditionally performed as a Kunqu opera, which is one of the oldest styles of Chinese theatre, runs for 20 hours and has 55 scenes,  has been brought down to a 90-minute performance of key scenes without compromising on its essence. The play was staged by 18 performers, all from mainland China. It was translated by Joanna Lee, an American-Chinese who has spent a lifetime on operas.last_img read more
