Campaigner appeals for parks dog ban

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Tireless Victorian nature advocate Steve Karakitsos has started a campaign to ban unleashed dogs from Mornington Peninsula National Park.With fewer than 600 hooded plovers left in the state, the endangered species, which inhabits sandy beaches, has come under increasing attack by dogs running amok.“The Mornington park is the only national park in Australia that didn’t enforce the dog ban even though it was declared a national park in 1988,” says Mr Karakitsos, “A dog ban throughout the Mornington Peninsula is being fought over 20 years to safeguard the future of the threatened species.”“Additional leash-free zones to accommodate the needs of dog walkers is also being sought from local government as part of an effective solution,” he adds.According to an investigation by BirdLife Australia commissioned by Parks Victoria, dogs have been identified as the principal cause of the hooded plovers’ diminishing numbers“If anything, this highlights the importance of imposing a complete dog ban within the Mornington Peninsula National Park,” stresses Karakitsos.“Given the nature and urgency of the protection of what amounts to less than 600 threatened birds, Environment Minister Lisa Neville’s swift response in her role as protector of the environment is required.”Apart from the site in Rye intended to be added to the repertoire of leash-free zones in the area, the St Andrews Beach Recreation Centre is also unofficially used by locals.last_img read more

Naissance de lunivers le LHC ouvre la voie de la nouvelle physique

first_imgNaissance de l’univers : le LHC ouvre la voie de la nouvelle physiqueSuisse – Six mois après la mise en route du plus grand accélérateur de particules du monde (LHC), les physiciens du Cern ont annoncé mardi avoir probablement découvert un phénomène encore jamais observé au cours des nombreuses recherches menées sur la formation de l’univers.Les expériences menées grâce au Grand collisionneur de hadrons (LHC) commencent à révéler “des signes de phénomènes potentiellement nouveaux et intéressants”, se réjouit sur son site Internet le Centre européen de la recherche nucléaire (Cern). Les physiciens ont découvert que “certaines particules sont intimement liées, d’une manière qui n’avait encore jamais été observée dans les collisions de protons”. Un phénomène qui s’est dévoilé dans les analyses du Cern au mois de juillet, a précisé le chercheur Guido Tonelli, lors d’une présentation des premiers résultats produits par des collisions de protons poussées à une puissance de 7 TeV.Les physiciens refusent de tirer des conclusions trop hâtives, ce lien devant encore être confirmé par de nouvelles études. “Nous avons maintenant besoin de plus de données pour analyser complètement ce qui se passe et faire nos premiers pas dans la nouvelle physique, un nouveau monde que le LHC, nous l’espérons, va nous permettre de découvrir” a expliqué M. Tonelli. Pour l’instant, les chercheurs se contenteront donc d’évoquer “des similitudes avec des phénomènes observés dans les collisions de noyaux au RHIC du Laboratoire national de Brookhaven (États-Unis), qui ont été interprétés comme pouvant être dus à la création de matière dense et chaude dans les collisions”.Le 22 septembre 2010 à 18:44 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Greffe un mécanisme de rejet compris grâce à des vidéos 3D

first_imgGreffe : un mécanisme de rejet compris grâce à des vidéos 3DGrâce à des vidéos de cellules en 3D réalisées par une équipe de chercheurs français, un mécanisme responsable des rejets de greffes a pu être observé en direct et in vivo. Une découverte qui devrait permettre aux chercheurs de mieux combattre les réactions immunitaires de l’organisme.Des chercheurs de l’Institut Pasteur et de l’Inserm ont réussi à filmer en 3D les processus responsables des rejets de greffons. Des vidéos obtenues grâce à une technique spécifique d’imagerie in vivo, la microscopie biphotonique, qui permet de filmer les interactions cellulaires dans les tissus.À lire aussiUne militaire blessée dans un accident se voit greffer une oreille cultivée… dans son brasLes chercheurs ont observé un modèle animal, une souris ayant subi une greffe de peau au niveau de l’oreille. Ils ont alors assisté à un véritable “ballet cellulaire” expliquent-ils dans leurs travaux publiés sur le site de la revue Nature Medicine. Pour la première fois, l’existence déjà soupçonnée d’un mécanisme en grande partie responsable du rejet de greffe est ainsi prouvée.Lorsqu’un organe étranger est greffé, il est considéré comme un intrus par l’organisme. Des signaux d’alerte sont alors envoyés par des cellules du système immunitaire, entraînant une réponse inflammatoire. Mais la réaction ne s’arrête pas là, ont découvert les chercheurs. Certaines cellules du receveur “sont capables d’effectuer le retour vers les ganglions lymphatiques pour y présenter aux cellules tueuses, les lymphocytes T, un fragment – ou antigène – du greffon”, explique Susanna Celli, l’un des auteurs de l’étude. “À cause de ce flux continu, l’armée de lymphocytes chargés de détruire de manière ciblée le greffon est constamment stimulée”, poursuit-elle.Ce mécanisme de relais explique pourquoi le rejet de greffe peut se manifester plusieurs mois après l’opération. Grâce à cette découverte, les chercheurs espèrent que des traitements bloquant ces allers-retours vers les ganglions lymphatiques pourront être mis au point.Le 17 mai 2011 à 14:29 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Pebble shows first glance at its new mine plans

first_imgA visual depiction of where Pebble will file a permit for 20 year mining permit to operate. This slide is one of more than 100 that Pebble is using to present an overview of their new plans. (Credit PLP)Early Thursday morning in Anchorage Pebble CEO Tom Collier began the rollout of Pebble Mine’s new design. The company is focusing on a much smaller footprint in the Pebble West deposit only.Listen now“We set as a goal trying to get into the ballpark of what the Obama EPA would have allowed to have been built in the region, and we’ve done that,” Collier said. “So, the Bristol Bay Watershed Assessment said that something 4.7 square mile footprint could be built, and we’re at 5.4 square miles as we go forward with this project.”A footprint includes the pit, tailings facilities, and waste rock, the latter of which the company said will be used in construction of the tailings dams and not left in open piles. EPA estimated Pebble’s footprint would be at least 13.5 square miles, Collier said, more than double what the company is now planning.Including all other facilities and construction, Pebble now said the entire project footprint has been reduced to 12.7 square miles, less than half of what it used to be, and now smaller than the proposed Donlin Gold Mine on the Kuskokwim River.Collier said these and other changes are in direct response to the concerns and criticisms raised over the past decade.“We’ve decided that we’re not going to do secondary gold recovery in this project, so there’ll be no cyanide in the region,” Collier said. “Tailings facilities will be much smaller. We’ll separate out those that might generate acid if they’re not treated in a special way, and make that facility lined and even more buttressed so it’ll be safe. By making the mine smaller, we’ll only be in two drainages, the North and South Fork Koktuli, and not in the Upper Talarik drainage which was part of the original plan.”The current design of a Pebble Mine, during normal operations, will disturb or damage a “negligible, as in, not measurable” amount of sockeye salmon spawning habitat, said Collier. To measure what could happen to sockeye in the event of a catastrophic failure of a tailings facility, similar to the 2014 Mount Polley disaster in British Columbia, the company is using the Bristol Bay Watershed Assessment developed under President Obama’s EPA. That study suggested that with no remediation or clean-up, some 10 miles of the Koktuli’s salmon habitat would be damaged for 10 years.Pebble is now looking at using a large ferry to haul ore across Iliamna Lake, rather than construct northern or southern route roads from the mine site to a new port in Cook Inlet. (Credit PLP)“When we look at what that looks like in terms of sockeye production, it would literally be two one hundredths of one percent of the sockeye production in the region. That’s a risk that we don’t want to run, and we believe we’ve protected against that risk, but that’s the worst case. And those that think we would or could destroy all the salmon in Bristol Bay just don’t have the facts before them,” Collier said.To move the ore to Cook Inlet, Pebble’s new plan uses an ice-breaking ferry to cross Iliamna Lake to a shorter new road east of Kokhanok. Not building a northern or southern route road around the lake will significantly cut down Pebble’s overall impact on wetlands, Collier said. Those routes are still being explored as alternatives for an Environmental Impact Statement.Pebble is looking to form a revenue sharing corporation to pay out dividends to local residents and village corporations during the project, since the deposit is not on Bristol Bay Native Corporation lands. The individual checks may be $500, and the corporations may see $500,000 annually. Collier wants to find new ways to help local fishermen, and produce enough power to offer low cost electricity for the region. That power could come from a new natural gas plant across Cook Inlet or be generated closer to the site.The project has been scaled back from an estimated annual operating budget of $1 billion to $400 million. Pebble believes annual royalties to the Lake and Peninsula Borough will still be around $20 million, that local residents will have access to some 1,000 news jobs, and village corporations will have access to ample new contracts.Pebble does not have a new partner yet, Collier said, but he is still planning to file a permit application before the end of the year.last_img read more

JK developments Trade ban will hurt Pakistani traders more than Indians

first_imgThe Attari-Wagah border is the most important land crossing between India and Pakistan. The suspension of bilateral trade between the two neighbouring countries by Islamabad will hit Pakistani traders and farmers more than Indians, reports indicate. ReutersPakistan’s decision to snap off trade ties with India over the New Delhi’s decision on Jammu and Kashmir will hurt Pakistani traders more than it will affect Indians, according to trade observers. Apart from the sizes of the two economies, the liberal trade environment that Pakistani traders enjoyed until recently by way of the most favoured nation (MFN) is also a factor that could cause more pain to business from across the border.India’s exported goods worth $452.5 million to Pakistan in the first quarter of 2019-20 financial year and the imports totalled $7.13 million, a report in the Economic Times says. In FY19, the total exports to Pakistan amounted to $2.06 billion, while imports were $495 million.India has low dependence on exports to the neighbouring countries including Pakistan, Indian officials point out, according to media reports. India’s $2.72-trillion economy is said to be in a better position to absorb regional trade shocks better than Pakistan’s economy estimated at $288 billion.Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan announced that Islamabad is breaking off trade ties with India to protest India’s action of changing the special status of Jammu and Kashmir by partly abrogating Article 370 and Article 35a of the Constitution. Pakistani exporters had been hit by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s withdrawal of the MFN status to Pakistan following the Pulwama terror attack. The stoppage of all bilateral trade will deal a fatal blow to many export houses in Pakistan that have an India-centric trade strategy.Indian traders will still have the option to access the Pakistani market indirectly through the United Arab Emirates where a lot of unaccounted trade happens through Dubai. On the other hand, India does not import much other than petroleum products from the Middle East, denying Pakistan traders an alternative route. Prime Minister Narendra Modi speaks to Pakistani counterpart Imran Khan in one of the rare one-to-one meetings. Khan’s decision to snap bilateral diplomatic and trade ties will have a symbolic effect.MEAWhile the ban on cross-border trade will hit the traders, it could also affect the people of Pakistan even more. The ban could push up the price of many essential commodities and pharmaceutical products in Pakistan.The nature of products imported by India and Pakistan also indicates a higher human cost for the latter. Imports to India from Pakistan are mostly agricultural produce that has a direct impact on the lives of the small and marginal farmers of Pakistan. Pakistan imports mostly steel, heavy machinery and pharmaceuticals products whose makers are industrial houses with more staying power and wherewithal to find alternative markets. Indian exports also include organic chemicals, cotton, plastics, and dyes.”Trade was practically closed for some time. So, there will be no impact especially on agricultural products,” the report quotes an unidentified official. “The suspension of trade relations will hit Pakistan more as our exports to them have a very limited profile because they did not give us MFN status and violated global trade rules,” the report quoted Ajay Sahai, director general, Federation of Indian Export Organisations, as saying. Sahai explained that such goods have a ready market in South Asia and the Middle East, which will enable India to divert such exports immediately without much cost.”This is a unilateral move and a unilateral loss,” Mohit Singla, Chairman, Trade Promotion Council of India, said. However, Sahai added that shipments in the pipeline will take a hit and it is not clear whether the goods in transit or lying at the ports would be recalled in such a deteriorating situation, the report added.last_img read more

Google has caved to the angry (online) masses, announcing early today (Sept. 26) that it will soon let you sign into a Google account without automatically signing into Chrome. Next Tip »» How to Silence Noisy Tabs in Chrome How to Use Chrome Extensions in Incognito Mode How to Clear Your Internet History in Chrome How to Change Your Default Search Engine in Chrome’s Omnibox How to Enable Do Not Track in Chrome Disable (and Enable) Notifications in Chrome How to Use Chrome’s Built-in Task Manager How to Prevent Scrollbar Jumping Hide Your Chrome Browsing From Your Boss Earlier this week, Johns Hopkins cryptography professor Matthew Green discovered that the latest version of Google Chrome automatically signed him into the browser whenever he navigated to an online Google service (such as Google Calendar, Maps, Gmail, and the like) and he was already logged into Google.This enraged him and many other users who had preferred not to sign into Chrome to keep their browsing history private, and Green explained his thoughts further in a blog post entitled “Why I’m Done with Chrome.”MORE: Best Chromebooks Available NowSigning into Chrome is a separate process from signing into Google. Signing into Chrome lets you share bookmarks and browsing history across every device you use, but until now, you didn’t need to do it even if you were already signed into Google on a PC, Mac or iOS device. (You’re always signed into Google on Android, so, as one Twitter reply to Green’s Twitter rant said, “there is no escape” there.)Green assumed that the new automatic sign-in to Chrome, which began with Chrome 69, the current version, automatically uploaded your browsing history and bookmarks to Google. After all, that’s how you can sync those items across instances of Chrome on multiple devices. However, Google security engineer Adrienne Porter-Felt responded to Green on Twitter, clarifying that the automatic login was actually a privacy feature to make sure that multiple people using the same device didn’t use each other’s accounts — and that the syncing of browsing history was a feature you now had to opt into.That didn’t quell the online firestorm, and another dodgy-sounding Chrome feature soon emerged — it turned out that in Chrome 69, deleting all cookies didn’t delete Google cookies.In a blog post today, Chrome product manager Zach Koch announced that, in response to such feedback, the company will now allow users to turn off the auto-sign in feature and let them clear all cookies.”We’ve heard — and appreciate — your feedback,” he wrote.Koch further outlined the original intent of the auto-login feature, which was to “prevent users from inadvertently performing searches or navigating to websites that could be saved to a different user’s synced account.”In other words, for family computers or other shared devices, automatic sign-in helped Chrome make sure everyone’s browsing data was correctly attributed. Still, Google probably should have realized this change would cause an uproar, especially since the change was not publicized. As for Green, he said he appreciates the outreach, but he’s still going to “start separating from Google.”To turn off auto-sign-in on the newest Chrome build, go to Settings > Privacy and Security, and toggle “Allow Chrome sign-in” to off.Credit: BigTunaOnline/Shutterstock Enable Guest Browsing in Chrome Remove Extensions from Chrome How to Make Chrome More Touch-Friendly More Tips How to Stop Pop-Ups in Chrome How to Silence Noisy Tabs in Chrome How to Change Your Default Search Engine in Chrome’s Omnibox Enable Guest Browsing in Chrome How to Use Chrome’s Built-in Task Manager How to Reduce Memory Usage in Chrome Chrome Browser Tips Chrome Browser Tips How to Prevent Scrollbar Jumping How to Put Chrome in High Contrast Mode Protect Yourself from Spoilers with the Chrome Browser How to Reduce Memory Usage in Chrome How to Change Your Default Search Engine in Chrome’s Omnibox How to Create Desktop Shortcuts for Web Pages Using Chrome How to Prevent Scrollbar Jumping Protect Yourself from Spoilers with the Chrome Browser Show Frames Per Second in Chrome How to Enable Do Not Track in Chrome How to Clear Your Internet History in Chrome How to Reduce Memory Usage in Chrome Disable (and Enable) Notifications in Chrome How to Create Desktop Shortcuts for Web Pages Using Chrome Firefox Quantum versus Chrome Hide Your Chrome Browsing From Your Bosslast_img read more

Turkish Cypriots going through hard times Akinci says

first_imgTurkish Cypriots are going through difficult times and despite the measures to shore up their economy, reforms were needed, Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci has said.Akinci, who was speaking at an event in Nicosia on Wednesday, said austerity measures were introduced but everyone had to assume their responsibility so that the crisis would not only affect the poor.The Turkish Cypriot leader said reform was needed in the public sector and corruption and money laundering must be stamped out.The use of the Turkish lira in the north has created serious problems for Turkish Cypriots.In the last six months, the value of the dollar against the Turkish lira has increased by 31 per cent, the euro by 26 per cent, and sterling by 21 per cent, accompanied by a corresponding rise in the price of nearly all imported goods.You May LikeNewsDWoman Takes Off Neck Rings After 5 Years How She Looks Now Is SurprisingNewsDUndoNewsmax5 Social Security Changes for 2019 You Must KnowNewsmaxUndoTop Journey MagThe Do’s and Don’t’s When Choosing Your Outfit For A FlightTop Journey MagUndo Two days of music to dance toUndoHeroes’ welcome for Israeli teens after woman detained for false rape claim (Update 2)UndoIran’s Revolutionary Guards publish purported exchange with British warshipUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
