Expert: Images show building of first Saudi nuclear reactorExpert: Images show building of first Saudi nuclear reactor

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — A nuclear technology expert says Google satellite images show Saudi Arabia is about a year away from completing the building of its first nuclear reactor. He says the construction so far appears to be very small in size, indicating the reactor is intended for research purposes.Still, Robert Kelley says before the kingdom can insert nuclear fuel into the reactor, it would have to abide by an agreement that requires inspections by the U.N. nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency.Kelley, a veteran of the U.S. Department of Energy now based in Vienna, was first to identify the images of the reactor site in Riyadh at the King Abdulaziz City of Science and Technology.He said Thursday the Saudi reactor is being built by the Argentinian government-owned company INVAP.The Associated Press read more

Sri Lanka UN rights expert urges Government to take concrete steps toSri Lanka UN rights expert urges Government to take concrete steps to

“In order to achieve peaceful co-existence after the long devastating civil war, a comprehensive, well-planned and well-coordinated truth, reconciliation, healing and accountability process must take place, and it cannot be done overnight,” Ms. Izsák-Ndiaye said in a news release issued at the end of her trip.She also encouraged the Government to take urgent measures to demonstrate its commitment to protect “the dignity, identity, equality and right to participation in all walks of life, of Sri Lanka’s minorities.” During her visit, Ms. Izsák-Ndiaye spoke to many minorities across the country, including Muslims, Hindus, Christians, Sri Lankan and Up-Country Tamils, Malays, Veddas, and Burghers, stressing that “challenges remain,” when referring to ongoing and urgent issues within Tamil and Muslim communities, such as return of occupied land, missing persons, demilitarization, and release of security-related detainees. Among other challenges, the expert noted poverty, violence and discrimination against women, including in personal laws, and caste-based discrimination, and added that that the country lacks representative institutions in accessing public services, and an inclusive justice system.

McCourtie At the same time, she praised the National Unity Government for its crucial efforts to adopt critical laws and provide better protection for minority rights, while also noting that “efforts by the Government to implement good and inclusive governance must include guarantees that minorities become part of decision-making processes and have a place in state- and provincial administration. Consultations with minority groups on issues affecting them should be regular, institutionalized and systematized.” In Ms. Izsák-Ndiaye’s opinion, the lives of minorities could be improved by incorporating teaching about diversity as a source of strength, into Sri Lanka’s educational curriculum. The UN Special Rapporteur also stressed the importance of forming a bridge between minority communities and the state, which can be done by creating an independent minority rights body, and providing expertise on policy-making process. According to the expert, the critical moment for the rights of minorities is embodied in the Constitutional reform process, which minorities see as a path to finally obtain their rights. “Minority NGOs and communities have given their voices to the constitutional consultation process with their numerous submissions,” Ms. Izsák-Ndiaye stated. “Their views and aspirations must be taken into proper consideration.” Special Rapporteurs and Independent Experts are appointed by the UN Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a country situation or a specific human rights theme. The positions are honorary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work.A detailed report will be presented to the Council by Ms. Izsák-Ndiaye in March 2017. read more

Cecil Rhodes effect Queen Mary University removes King Leopold II plaques afterCecil Rhodes effect Queen Mary University removes King Leopold II plaques after

first_imgThe “Cecil Rhodes effect” is creating a chilling atmosphere around the country, experts fear, after it emerged that Queen Mary University of London quietly removed a foundation stone laid by King Leopold II amid student complaints that he was a “genocidal colonialist”.Within weeks of the launch of a petition by the university’s Pan-African Society calling for the foundation stone and commemorative plaque to be taken down, the institution’s authorities yielded to the activists’ demands.King Leopold II, who was a first cousin of Queen Victoria, ruled Belgium from 1865 to 1909. He founded the Congo Free State, now the Democratic of Congo, where he forced natives to work as labourers on rubber plantations. The petition, launched in June, said the plaques should be removed from their “uncritical” place in the Octagon Building and “relocated to a museum…dedicated to the memorialisation of the crimes of genocide, colonialism and imperialism.” King Leopold II of Belgium (1835 – 1909)Credit:Getty Images Dr Joanna Williams, whose book  Academic Freedom in an Age of Conformity was published earlier this year, said: “When universities start removing plaques and statues on the basis of student petitions, without any broader debate or discussion, where and when do they draw the line?“There are very few who have a completely untarnished record when you start looking back through history.“Roads are named after people, streets are named after people – if you start saying you have to have a completely unblemished past to have something named after you, you could argue that every single building and road would be renamed across the country.” Oxford University student campaigned to remove a statue of Cecil RhodesCredit:Eddie Mulholland “The size and prominence of these inscriptions suggested a strength of association that was never the case, and as such the decision was taken to remove both from view.” A plaque removed from Queen Mary's Oxtagonal Building earlier this year following student protests Harvard Law School replaced  its official crest, because of its links to an 18th-century slave owner, following five months of demonstrations and sit-ins by students. The Octagon Building, Queen Mary UniversityCredit:Queen Mary University The “Leopold Must Fall” campaign at Queen Mary is one of a string of student movements calling for universities to sever ties with individuals and objects associated with colonialism. Earlier this year, Oxford University refused to give into calls from the “Rhodes Must Fall” campaign to tear down a statue of Cecil Rhodes from Oriel College over his links with Britain’s colonial past. However, other universities have been quicker to give into student demands. Jesus College at Cambridge University took down a bronze cockerel statue which had been looted during a British colonial expedition to Nigeria in the 19th century, after students asked for it to be repatriated.center_img Dr Williams,  senior lecturer  in higher education at the University of Kent, said that universities were now so quick to respond to student demands that they were losing their ability to “hold the line”. The actions of Queen Mary University of London set a dangerous precedent of universities giving in to students and “whitewashing” history, she said. “It suggests a fear within the university authorities – as if they are scared of the students and pander to their demands to avoid attracting negative attention.” A plaque removed from Queen Mary’s Octagonal Building earlier this year following student protestsCredit:Jacqueline Banerjee Oxford University student campaigned to remove a statue of Cecil Rhodes Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Just a month later, the university told students that it had removed them “as part of ongoing refurbishment work” to the Octagon Library.Emma Bull, director of student services at the university, told the leaders of the student protest at the time: “Queen Mary University has no historical ties with King Leopold, other than he visited Mile End in April 1887, and then returned to lay the Foundation Stone in June 1887.

Family of World War Two Lancaster bomber reunited with his bracelet 74Family of World War Two Lancaster bomber reunited with his bracelet 74

The crematorium in the Natzweiler-Struthof concentration camp as it looks today, preserved as a warning to future generations. The crematorium in the Natzweiler-Struthof concentration camp as it looks today, preserved as a warning to future generations. A British Military Court, convened in June 1946 in the Zoological Garden at Wuppertal, found five men guilty of Sgt Habgood’s murder.One was given a term of imprisonment, the four others faced death sentences. Two sentences were later commuted to imprisonment and the remaining two men, whose names are known but do not deserve to be remembered, were hanged in October 1946.   A year later, to the day, NE 164 was shot down, and Freddie Habgood’s voice fell silent.He speaks again now, and we remember him, through a bracelet emerging from the earth. Light shining from the darkness. Sgt Habgood's silver bracelet, given to him in 1943. Sgt Freddie Habgood. Paul Habgood, the nephew of of Sgt Freddie Habgood who, after his Lancaster crashed on a raid in 1944, was executed at Natzweiler-Struthof Concentration Camp.  In the late evening of July 28, 1944, an air armada of 494 RAF Lancaster bombers took off from eastern England to attack enemy targets on the continent.One plane, tail number NE164, launched from an air base in North Killingholme near Grimsby. The target was the industrial area of Stuttgart, but the bomber never made it through.At 01:32 on the morning of July 29, NE164 was attacked by a German Messerschmitt, piloted by Oberleutnant Gottfried Hanneck of No. 1 Night Fighter Wing.With the right wing of the aircraft on fire, Flying Officer Harry Jones steered his plane past the small town of Obernai in the Alsace region and at about 01:50 the Lancaster crashed in a forest.Of the seven crew, F/O Jones died in the crash and Sergeant Idwal Williams, one of the two Gunners, did not survive his parachute jump.The Wireless Operator Sergeant Donald Hunter, Flight Engineer Sergeant James Drury and Gunner Sergeant Roy Cumberlidge were taken prisoner and survived the war in a camp in Poland.Navigator F/O William Dinney, a Canadian, hid in a nunnery and was handed over to the Resistance who helped him escape back to Britain.Sergeant Frederic Harold Habgood, the plane’s bomber, was betrayed by a local woman to the Gestapo. On July 31 he was taken to the nearby Natzweiler-Struthof concentration camp and immediately hanged. He was 21 years old. Second page of the letter from the Air Ministry confirming Freddie's death.  Freddie had been survived by his brother, Ronald, older by 13 months, and younger sister, Madelene. Ronald had two children, Marilyn and Paul, but the family had rarely discussed their loss.“Growing up, all we knew was that Freddie had been killed during the war,” says Marilyn, “it wasn’t until I was quite a bit older that I realised he had actually been executed”.“It was never really spoken about. Certainly my father didn’t want to talk about it.”The Telegraph accompanied Marilyn and Paul to France to be reunited with the bracelet. Up to that point they say the story of their uncle had been part of the family fabric, but as neither had known Freddie personally, and his death had been so little talked of, there had been no direct emotional connection.That changed in France.

She had expressed a wish that the bracelet be offered to a museum in Britain. “We would like to have it back here as a family. We would like it to go to a museum for everybody to see,” Marilyn and Paul agree.Freddie had written to his parents on July 29, 1943 from Canada, saying how much he had enjoyed his time with his uncle Harry and aunt Gladys, and of how they had given him his silver bracelet.‘My dearest mum and dad,’ he wrote, ‘I was able to visit aunty Gladys and uncle Harry for a few hours. They gave me a bracelet, with RAF wings and name and number engraved, for a graduation present. I was very sorry to say goodbye and hope that I shall be able to see them again after the war.’ Freddie Habgood had trained in Canada throughout 1943. He had relatives in the country, and for his graduation they had given him a gift of a silver bracelet engraved with his name, service number and RAF wings. On the reverse was one name, Jean, Freddie’s beloved cousin. His family assumed it had been stolen by the Nazis after his murder.In July this year, as she watered the flowers at the concentration camp in France, preserved as a warning to future generations, a local girl saw something glinting in the soil. Although muddy and tarnished, some lettering was still clear and two names were visible. On one side ‘Jean’, on the other, ‘Habgood’.It had not been looted by the Nazis. It had not been consumed by fire or by earth.Incongrously, incredibly, for 74 years the ground had kept the secret of Freddie’s silver bracelet, and now the soil had offered it up.

Lord of the Rings fans finally get a Hobbit trailerLord of the Rings fans finally get a Hobbit trailer

first_imgFans of Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings films have reason to cheer today as there is finally a trailer of the upcoming movie, “The Hobbit.” The first of a two-movie production, “The Hobbit” tells J.R.R. Tolkien’s prequel tale of Bilbo Baggins journeying with Gandalf (for the first time) to help reclaim Erebor for its rightful dwarven owners. The first installment will focus on the earlier part of the group’s adventures, including the finding of the One Ring by Bilbo in Gollum’s cave.The trailer shows that the film is being produced with the same look and feel as his first three LotR movies. Indeed if you didn’t know you were watching the trailer for the Hobbit you might think you were seeing clips from the trilogy. This is due in large part to Jackson being able to retain the original actors who played Gandalf and Galadriel, a welcome sight for fans who demand consistency across production.While the trailer gives the LotR fanbase something to chew over, there is still a whole year to wait before the release of the film. Slated for a December 2013 premiere, the fervor for the film is only going to ramp up as the date slowly draws closer.While I am excited for the film, I have to say that I was underwhelmed by the trailer. My expectations were too high perhaps, but I was looking forward to the events of the novel being portrayed in an exciting way. Of course this is little a teaser so the best bits are yet to come, but I would have loved to see what Smaug is going to look like or a preview of the Battle of the Five Armies. While I understand that those come in the second film, it would have mae for a more complete package.last_img read more

Un robot frétillant pour guider les poissonsUn robot frétillant pour guider les poissons

first_imgUn robot frétillant pour guider les poissonsDes chercheurs ont découvert qu’en imitant la nature les poissons étaient susceptibles de suivre un poisson robotisé comme si celui-ci faisait partie des leurs. Ce système pourrait permettre de sauver des espèces en danger.La nature est une source d’inspiration sans fin pour les ingénieurs. C’est donc en observant des bancs de poissons que Stefano Marras et Maurizio Porfiri, des scientifiques et ingénieurs mécaniques, ont mis au point un poisson biomimétique. Dans la nature, les poissons placés en pole position dans un banc agitent leur queue de façon plus importante que les autres, créant ainsi un sillage suivi par le reste des poissons. Cela permet à ces derniers d’économiser de l’énergie qui ont besoin de moins agiter leur queue. En quelque sorte, ils profitent de l’aspiration consécutive aux efforts du leader.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Mais c’est avec surprise que les deux scientifiques ont constaté que des ménés jaunes (une espèce de poissons) suivaient la trajectoire empruntée par leur robot. Dans l’article publié en ligne dans le Journal of the Royal Society Interface, les chercheurs expliquent que leur animal mécanique était conçu de manière à reproduire les mouvements de propulsion de la queue des poissons. Les expériences qu’ils ont menées visaient ainsi à tester différentes vitesses de battements de queue. Lorsque le poisson mécanique  était à l’arrêt, il attirait alors l’attention de ses “congénères”. En revanche, dès que sa queue se mettait à battre à la vitesse d’un poisson leader, les ménés jaunes le reconnaissaient comme un des leurs et le suivait en ralentissant leur battement de queue. “Ces expériences pourraient ouvrir la voie à de nouvelles possibilités concernant les interactions entre la robotique et les vies animales”, explique Maurizio Porfiri cité par Science Daily.En effet, l’idée sous-jacente serait d’aider les animaux en les guidant via des systèmes robotisés à l’image de celui-ci. Cela permettrait notamment d’influencer le comportement collectif de certaines espèces pour participer à leur conservation et à leurs efforts pour survivre. Par exemple, il serait possible de guider des poissons en dehors d’une zone potentiellement toxique à cause de marée noire ou de dangers chimiques dus aux activités humaines entre autres.Le 28 mars 2012 à 16:35 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

House passes bill to provide benefits to family of fallen police firefightersHouse passes bill to provide benefits to family of fallen police firefighters

first_imgRep. Chuck Kopp, R-Anchorage, during a House Floor session in January. He supported a bill that would provide health insurance to survivors of police officers and firefighters who die in the line of duty. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)The state House passed a bill Monday that would provide health insurance to the families of police officers and firefighters who die in the line of duty.Listen nowHouse Bill 23 was prompted by the shooting deaths of Trooper Sgt. Patrick “Scott” Johnson and Trooper Gabe Rich in 2014. State law didn’t require that their dependents continue to receive health insurance.While Governors Sean Parnell and Bill Walker have ordered that survivors continue to receive coverage, lawmakers want to make it permanent.Anchorage Rep. Chuck Kopp, a retired police officer, said officers would appreciate it if the bill becomes law.“It’s hard to imagine what a spouse and what children go through every day when they see their father or their mom gearing up to go to work because the unknown is always there,” Kopp said. “Will this be the last time?”The House passed a similar bill last year, but the Senate didn’t pass it. Supporters are hopeful that its early progress this session will lead to it becoming law.The current bill passed after a debate over a series of amendments. Six amendments were defeated. They would have applied the benefits to a wider range of public workers or would have made them voluntary.North Pole Republican Rep. Tammie Wilson supported an amendment that would have allowed municipalities to opt out of paying for the benefits.“We’re going to make the municipalities come into it, whether or not they want to or not,” Wilson said. “I think most of them will do it in some form or another. But why are we forcing them to do it?”Bill sponsor Anchorage Democratic Rep. Andy Josephson said it’s necessary to pay the benefits.“This is about the soul of the state of Alaska,” Josephson said. “This is about saying to the dependents: ‘You have suffered the unimaginable and we’ve got your back.’ ”The Senate State Affairs Committee passed its version, Senate Bill 48, on Friday. It’s been referred to the Senate Finance Committee.last_img read more

Humble Indie Bundle adds 5 more gamesHumble Indie Bundle adds 5 more games

first_imgThe 3rd iteration of the charity-friendly Humble Indie Bundle has been doing swift business over the past few weeks. Revenue from the offer of 5 games plus access to Minecraft for a couple of weeks is about to reach $1.5 million and 277,000 bundles sold. But the team behind it have had a new idea to boost revenue yet further for the last 5 days.If you purchase the bundle any time before August 9, and spend more than the average for the day, you will receive the Humble Indie Bundle 2 games as well. That means as well as gaining access to Cogs, VVVVVV, Hammerfight, and And Yet it Moves, you will also receive Braid, Cortex Command, Machinarium, Osmos, and Revenge of the Titans.Don’t forget the bonus game Steel Storm is also thrown in for free, and the access to Minecraft on offer too. It’s is a fantastic deal that also sees Child’s Play and the EFF benefit too depending on how you to decide to split the money you are spending between them and the developers.As we reported earlier in the week, Linux users are paying the most by far for the bundle. They were averaging $11.63 per purchase compared to $6.61 for Mac gamers and $3.80 for the Windows crowd. Those averages have now increased slightly to $11.80, $7.14, and $4.45, and will probably continue to do so at a faster rate as gamers spend a little more to get the extra games.Whichever way you look at it the bundle is still a bargain, and to get the extra five games today you only have to spend more than $5.38. With the average rising though, it’s sure to be higher tomorrow making the 10+ game bundle more expensive the longer you wait to buy.More at Humble Bundlelast_img read more

Thirty percent of cancers (17/56) were better seen on 2-D mammography but none were only seen on 2-D mammography. The remaining were rated by the breast imaging specialists as being equally visible on both 2-D and 3- imaging, she said.”The majority of cancers seen better or only on tomosynthesis were predominantly infiltrating ductal carcinoma, which typically presents as a mass, focal asymmetry or architectural distortion,” said O’Connell.The majority of cancers seen better or only on 2-D mammography were ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) which presents as calcifications, she said. “This was not surprising because tomosynthesis gives us the ability to scroll through the breast tissue in 1 mm sections, which provides us with more detail, but also may separate a cluster of calcifications, making them more difficult to identify,” said O’Connell. O’Connell noted that work is being done to optimize visualization of calcifications on tomosynthesis.The benefits of tomosynthesis are especially relevant to women at increased risk of breast cancer who have increased anxiety about breast screening and have the potential for biologically aggressive cancers, said O’Connell.The study is part of the electronic exhibit program at the ARRS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.
