A nine-armed octopus? Not so fast

first_imgAt first glance, the octopus that was found by scuba divers in the waters of an artisanal fishery near the coastal village of Puerto Ángel in Mexico looked like a bizarre nine-armed specimen. But a closer look revealed that it had the usual eight arms after all—only, researchers found, its second arm was bifurcated, which means that it was divided into two branches. The likely cause was a genetic mutation, according to a study published in the current issue of the American Malacological Bulletin. The investigators, who found the specimen in 2012, suspect that the bifurcation was unlikely to be from an arm injury and theorize instead that it was caused by a mutation in one of the Hox genes, which play a crucial role in the formation of limbs and organs. This octopus joins a line of others with similar arm abnormalities: In a particularly extreme case published back in 1965, researchers in Japan described an octopus with multiple branching in seven of its eight arms, which resulted in a total of 90 branches.last_img read more

World Cup 2014: Cometh the hour, cometh Neymar- the man for Brazil

first_imgInevitably, it was all about Neymar. Nobody lives up to expectations like the young Brazil forward.On the day he got his 50th cap, Neymar was once again the star of the show, scoring Brazil’s first and second goals in their 3-1 opening day win over Croatia.They were his fifth and sixth goals in his last four Brazil games and take his international total to 33. Only Pele scored 30 in so few games.Neymar began the Group A match quietly, but was never hesitant or overawed like some of his team mates. Although Brazil went a goal down, he was always probing for an equaliser.When it came, he was lucky to be on the field. In the 27th minute he elbowed Croatia midfielder Luka Modric in the throat and was fortunate only to get a yellow card.But he survived and was there to pick up a loose ball just outside the centre circle a few moments later.Neymar advanced, dragged the ball on to his left foot and his shot, while slightly mis-hit, was so perfectly placed that Croatia goalkeeper Stipe Pletikosa could not get a fingertip to it, even at full stretch.In the second half Neymar was the man Brazil turned to in the key moment of the match. Fred threw himself to the ground, won a penalty, and Neymar had no hesitation in stepping up.It was no surprise. Neymar got his first caps wearing the No. 11 shirt but asked to have the storied No. 10 jersey before last year’s Confederations Cup.advertisementIt was a significant gesture that said, ‘I am ready to take on the responsibility that once sat on the shoulders of Pele, Ronaldinho and Rivaldo.’ He is mature beyond his 22 years.Again, Pletikosa was unlucky. He got a hand to Neymar’s spot kick but there was enough power behind the shot to ensure the ball hit the net.The local hero was taken off seven minutes from time to a standing ovation from the home fans. It was a job well done. Inevitably.last_img read more

The Gold Cup, held on Thursday, is the centrepiece of the week, and no horse has dominated the race like Aidan O’Brien’s Yeats, winner four years in succession from 2006 to 2009 . Frankel, perhaps the greatest of all flat horses, won his first ever Group 1 in the Juddmonte Royal Lodge Stakes in 2010 as a two-year-old. The following year, he had to cling to victory in the St James’ Palace Stakes, but in 2012, his final season, he utterly destroyed the field in the same race. The horse Frankel was compared to most in his era was the Australian filly Black Caviar. They never raced each other, so this simulation of them racing at Ascot and over Swinley Bottom and the rest of it will have to suffice. Black Caviar ran once at Ascot and won – but only just in 2012.

Net Zero Energy Building Opens at UWI

first_img Jamaica and the Caribbean’s first net zero energy building was officially opened on Wednesday (October 25) on the University of the West Indies’ (UWI) Mona Campus.The 2,300-square-foot structure, situated along Gibraltar Way, is designed as a model to encourage construction of sustainable and energy-efficient buildings throughout the region.As a prototype, it will demonstrate emerging and best practices in the built environment as it relates to energy efficiency, renewable energy and environmental design.The building will house the Centre for Advanced Research in Renewable Energy (CARRE), the first such centre in the Caribbean, promoting research in photovoltaic (solar), wind and biomass energy.A net zero building is one where the total amount of energy used by the building on an annual basis is roughly equal to the amount of renewable energy created on the site.The long-term benefits are lower environmental impact and operating and maintenance costs, better resiliency to power outages and natural disasters, and improved energy security.Minister of Science, Energy and Technology, Dr. the Hon. Andrew Wheatley, said now that the prototype building is complete and ready for use, Jamaica is looking forward to the results, in order to make the case for more energy-efficient building designs and greater use of renewable resources.“I welcome this initiative and congratulate all those who have been involved with the project. We want, now, to see more of this happening in both the public and private sectors,” he said.He noted that the adaptation and implementation of net zero energy buildings will go a far way in reducing the country’s carbon footprint by ensuring future utility cost savings and improved daylighting with less glare.“The net zero energy building becomes more significant to us when we take account of the fact that buildings account for over a third of the world’s energy use and associated greenhouse gas emissions,” Dr. Wheatley pointed out.It is estimated that more than half of the electricity produced is consumed by buildings, with 10 to 20 per cent of total life-cycle use going into manufacture and assembly of building material, construction, maintenance, refurbishing and demolition.Eighty to 90 per cent of energy consumed over the life of the building is for heating, cooling, lighting and ventilation.“In tropical and subtropical regions, the main demands are generated by air conditioning, lighting, water heating and appliances. It is, therefore, important for us to focus a lot more on making our buildings more efficient, so that they are easier and cheaper to heat, cool, light and ventilate,” Dr. Wheatley said.Principal Investigator, Low Greenhouse Gas Emissions: Promoting Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Building in Jamaica (LGGE) Project, Professor Tara Dasgupta, said that the building will save approximately 50,000 kilowatts of energy, which translates to a reduction in carbon dioxide emission of 34.5 metric tonnes per year.He informed that as soon as the building is active, an energy audit will be undertaken.He said that energy consumption and production will be monitored for one year and the results submitted to an international accreditation body for zero energy building certification.The net zero energy building project was implemented by the UWI Institute of Sustainable Development with funding from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and technical assistance from the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). Jamaica and the Caribbean’s first net zero energy building was officially opened on Wednesday (October 25) on the University of the West Indies’ (UWI) Mona Campus. The building will house the Centre for Advanced Research in Renewable Energy (CARRE), the first such centre in the Caribbean, promoting research in photovoltaic (solar), wind and biomass energy.

Algonquin chief to reject post father

first_imgBarriere Lake, Que. — The newly acclaimed chief of a small northern Algonquin community is expected to reject the position later today in protest over Indian Affairs’ decision to impose a band council under rarely used Indian Act powers, his father claims.Casey Ratt was acclaimed as chief of Barriere Lake this morning, according to the electoral officer hired by Indian Affairs to run the band election.Ratt’s father, Sever Ratt, told APTN National News this morning that his son would not accept the position. If Ratt rejects the position, it will undercut the legitimacy of the remaining band council who were also acclaimed this morning. Ratt had opposed the imposition of an Indian Act secret ballot band election imposed by the department to replace the community’s traditional mode of selecting leaders. Another community member who had worked with Ratt to stop the election of a  band council said the new chief was expected to reject the post.“He mentioned he had been nominated last week and he was supposed to decline that publicly or in writing,” said Tony Wawati.Wawati said he believed the community planned to continue fighting Indian Affairs to preserve their customary leadership selection process.“(Indian Affairs) pulled a fast one on us,” he said. Casey Ratt could not be immediately reached for comment. An attempt Thursday by Indian Affairs to set up a nomination poll was blocked by community members who turned electoral officer Bob Norton away for a second time.Norton said Friday morning that the new chief and band council had been acclaimed to their posts based on nominations handed to him over the past several weeks.Norton said Ratt was acclaimed as chief, along with councillors Anita Decoursey, Chad Thusky, Steve Wawati and Hector Jerome.Norton said all were nominated by at least two people.Norton said the results could be appealed to the deputy minister on grounds of corruption or faulty process.He also said that if two of the five quit it would force a by-election.Long plagued by internal divisions, warring factions within the community seemed to have formed a united front against the department’s attempt to abolish Barriere Lake’s traditional leadership selection process and impose an Indian Act band council.Former Indian Affairs Minister Chuck Strahl invoked rarely used powers under the Indian Act to abolish the community’s customary leadership selection code called Blazing.Strahl demanded the band use secret ballot voting to select their council in an attempt to end a power-struggle within the community.Barriere Lake’s custom code was based on the community approving or rejecting of candidates selected by an elders council.Ratt had recently signed a letter along with former chief Jean-Maurice Matchewan rejecting the imposition of an Indian Act band council.“The Algonquins of Barriere Lake are united in their fervent opposition to the minister-imposed band council elections,” sated the July 18 letter to Strahl.Barriere Lake, one of the poorest First Nations communities in Canada, sits about 300 kilometres north of Ottawa.

Plight of children in armed conflict reaches watershed stage – UN official

During the annual Council debate on children and armed conflict, Under-Secretary-General Olara Otunnu said that while there has been significant progress on many fronts for children, too many parties go unpunished despite continuing to violate their rights.“The general situation for children remains grave and unacceptable,” Mr. Otunnu said, citing the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), the Indonesian province of Aceh, Iraq, Liberia, the occupied Palestinian territories and Uganda as areas where children have particularly suffered over the past year. Mr. Otunnu’s recommendations to redress the situation include setting up a monitoring and reporting mechanism to track violations of children’s rights during conflicts.But he said there has been some progress in recent years, including greater advocacy for children, the development of international norms for their treatment, and the increasing integration of child protection into UN peacekeeping operations.Carol Bellamy, Executive Director of the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), told the Council debate that many children suffer more because humanitarian access is often restricted or banned outright during wars.Ms. Bellamy said child soldiers were not the only victims of wars, adding that girls were especially vulnerable to sexual violence and exploitation.“Another devastating consequence of today’s wars is that they create and exacerbate conditions that lead to HIV/AIDS,” she said. “The impoverishment that accompanies conflict often leaves women and girls so destitute that trading sex for survival becomes the only option for many.”A number of the more than 40 delegates who spoke at the meeting said the most effective way to help children affected by armed conflict was to strike at the root of the problem by preventing war from breaking out in the first place.

Haver Boecker highlights training and service aspects of HydroClean

first_imgAs covered before in IM, Haver & Boecker’s Hydro-Clean™ washing system effectively cleans deleterious material from aggregates and minerals while reducing water consumption by as much as 75% and energy costs by up to 15% over traditional washing systems. However, the innovative washing system improves also productivity by bringing together one-of-a-kind washing technology with on-site training and service after the installation to ensure an operation’s entire crew can quickly and capably achieve the best results from the washing system.Haver & Boecker schedules training and a service follow-up visit with each Hydro-Clean commissioning. “This helps customers quickly achieve the full potential of the unique washing system. Service technicians train customers on basic operation, start-up and shut-down procedures and daily maintenance. Also, for customers in northern climates, critical cold-month operation dos and don’ts are reviewed. Beyond the basics, technicians train customers on how to make adjustments to achieve the desired product quality. The training concludes with a review of the technical manual and stock recommendations on wear parts. After one week technicians return to review system performance and customer satisfaction with the cleaning results, as well as address any new questions or concerns that came up after training.”“We want to ensure our customers receive the most value from both the Hydro-Clean and the materials they’re washing,” says Karen Thompson, President of Haver & Boecker Canada. “There’s no other washing system like the Hydro-Clean, which is why we work alongside our customers and provide training early on. That way, everybody gets on the same page quickly, and it helps achieve maximum efficiency.” Due to its compact size and weight, overall operating and structural costs are considerably lower with the Hydro-Clean than with traditional washing systems, which also require more equipment and a larger footprint. Taking feed material as large as 150 mm into its vertical drum, the Hydro-Clean employs high-pressure nozzles, rotating at 90 rpm, to spray as much as 90% recycled water on the material with pressures as high as 2,000 psi (140 bar). The washing system removes silt and clay particles as small as 63 microns from mineral mixtures. The washer comes in three model sizes — the HC350, HC1000 and HC2000 — that process 18 to 360 t/h, depending on the model and application.The Hydro-Clean consumes minimal resources. Water consumption ranges from 27 to 211 gpm, depending on application and model size, and energy costs are as much as 15% lower than with conventional washing systems. The Hydro-Clean also experiences less wear than washing alternatives thanks to a maintenance-friendly design that allows for easy exchange of the few standard components. “Ideal for use in clay-heavy material deposits, the Hydro-Clean is fed dirty material via a hopper into its vertical drum. Once inside, high-pressure nozzles mounted at the top rotate and spray the material with water. The turbulence in the drum creates additional scrubbing and abrasive forces that enhance the cleaning process as the material travels down the drum cylinder. High-pressure streams of water are injected into holes and cracks within the rock that are difficult to reach with traditional cleaning methods, creating a cleaner product that generates higher selling value.”In addition, many producers use this washing system to turn material that was once waste into sellable product. During the cleaning process, the washed material works its way down the drum and exits onto a discharge conveyor that leads to a wash screen. The screen removes any remaining dirt or clay still on the stone as it fractionates the material.last_img read more

Birmanie le séisme a fait au moins 60 morts

first_imgBirmanie : le séisme a fait au moins 60 mortsSelon un bilan provisoire, le fort tremblement de terre qui a secoué le nord-est de la Birmanie hier a fait au moins 60 morts et plus de 90 blessés.Des dizaines de maisons effondrées, des pagodes détruites : ce matin, les autorités birmanes commençaient tout juste à mesurer l’ampleur des dégâts de la catastrophe. Hier soir, un violent séisme de magnitude 7 a secoué le nord-est du pays. Ressentie jusqu’en Thaïlande et au Vietnam, la secousse a tout particulièrement touché la petite ville de Tarlay, plus proche de l’épicentre et située dans l’État de Shan. Jusqu’à ce matin, les répliques se poursuivaient.À lire aussiLa tragique histoire de l’homme évacué d’un avion à cause de son odeurAux dernières nouvelles, le bilan provisoire faisait état d’au moins 60 morts et de plus de 90 blessés. Des chiffres qui pourraient bien augmenter en cours de journée selon les autorités locales. En effet, le séisme est survenu dans une région montagneuse difficile d’accès et a coupé de nombreuses communications. Plus d’une centaine d’habitations se sont effondrées et les équipes de secours ont commencé à dégager les décombres pour rechercher des survivants. “Il ne semble pas y avoir de dégâts d’infrastructures catastrophiques bien que beaucoup de bâtiments soient fissurés. Mais les zones rurales sont sources d’inquiétude. Il y aura d’autres mauvaises nouvelles au cours de la journée, je le crains” a confié à Ouest France, Chris Herinj, directeur en Birmanie de l’organisation humanitaire World Vision.Ressenti dans une zone très large, le séisme a provoqué des scènes de panique dans plusieurs pays, en Thaïlande, au Laos, au Vietnam et en Chine. Les immeubles élevés ont tremblé sous la secousse et plusieurs se sont fissurés sous le choc mais les dégâts matériels restent légers. En Thaïlande, les flèches de deux pagodes sont tombées et une femme a été tuée dans l’effondrement d’un des murs de sa maison. Par peur des répliques, beaucoup d’habitants ont passé la nuit dehors.Pas de risque de raz-de-marée Pour l’instant, aucune alerte au tsunami n’a été déclenchée, la secousse s’étant produite très loin des côtes à l’intérieur des terres. De plus, les sismologues ont indiqué qu’il ne semblait y avoir aucun lien avec le séisme dévastateur survenu le 11 mars dernier au Japon.

Celtic defender praises fans for clubs victory

first_imgCeltic defender Filip Benkovic has heaped praises on the club’s supporters following their 2-1 win against RB Leipzig on Thursday night.After suffering a disappointing defeat away in Germany, the Scottish champions needed a victory against the Bundesliga club to stand any chance of making it into the second round of the competition and the team duly delivered.The on-loan Leicester City defender relished the atmosphere at Celtic Park on Thursday night and revealed that manager, Brendan Rodgers urged the players not to be afraid of the pressure of what was a must-win game but to embrace it.“The manager told us before the game that if we believed in ourselves we would get the result,” said Benkovic, according to Evening Times.“He told us not to worry about the pressure but to go and play our own game. He said if we did that we could get all three points and he was right. We didn’t feel pressure. We just felt that we wanted to do our best and show how we can play.Mikey Johnston, CelticJohnston is disappointed after being injured Manuel R. Medina – September 11, 2019 Celtic winger Mikey Johnston was disappointed to miss Scotland Under 21 national team’s victories over San Marino and Croatia, and he hopes he can return to play soon.“Coming out onto the pitch it felt that the stadium was on fire.

Ports Authority tender for container scrutiny at docks delayed

first_img Related Items:containers, guns, ports authority Recommended for you Police calling on Public to stand against Guns Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 24 Jun 2015 – As some residents speculate strongly that guns may be coming in through our legal import/export docks; we look back on the move by the country’s port managers to better secure the shipping process. The Ports Authority was since January given the green light by Government to go to tender so that container scanners could be introduced at all seaports – they want to be able to check containers coming in and containers going out for security purposes. In September 2014, a proposal was made at Cabinet and based on Cabinet minutes, the idea was widely supported then and again in January at the first sitting of Ministers and the Governor for the year. The Governor’s Office explained that Cabinet welcomed the proposal and agreed that the Ports Authority should put the work out to tender. The Ports Authority is currently working toward a multi-million dollar dredging and upgrade for at least three of the country’s docks namely Grand Turk, South Caicos and South Dock in Provo. It is estimated the enhancements to the docks will take $40 to $50 million dollars with the hopes that work would begin later this year. As for the job for the containerized scanners, we could find no trace of a tender.
