MADRID — A Spanish judge has sent the head of Mexico’s biggest steelmaker to jail while authorities decide on his extradition to Mexico, where he’s wanted for alleged corruption-related crimes.A Spanish police spokesman told The Associated Press that Spanish police, acting on a Mexican warrant, arrested Altos Hornos de Mexico President Alonso Ancira Elizondo late Tuesday as he was getting ready to board a Canada-bound plane from the Mediterranean island of Mallorca.A spokesman with the National Court in Madrid, which handles extradition cases, said Wednesday that Judge Santiago Pedraz ordered Ancira to be kept in custody until Mexico submits the case’s documents.Both officials spoke under customary rules of anonymity.Mexican authorities on Tuesday froze the bank accounts of Altos Hornos de Mexico and Emilio Lozoya, a former chief of Pemex, the country’s state-owned company.Aritz Parra, The Associated Press
Making a watchword of preparedness, officials from 30 countries today wrapped up a two-day United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) meeting in Paris where they reviewed responses to a potential outbreak of a new strain of influenza caused by bird flu.Avian influenza from the H5N1 virus is currently widespread among poultry and bird populations on three continents, officials were told by Dr. David Nabarro, the UN’s point man on the issue. It is known to have infected only a few hundred people to this point, but if it mutates into a strain that is rapidly transmissible among humans it could take a deadly and rapidly spreading toll.Good planning, clear arrangements for direction and staff communications, a fully prepared work force, and clear procedures for customer and workplace safety are the keys to protecting the interests of travellers, companies, and the entire tourism sector, Dr. Nabarro told the group.At any given time, there are over 2 million travellers abroad, and millions more travelling within home countries, according to Geoffrey Lipman, UNWTO Assistant Secretary-General. He underscored that there is no present threat to tourism from avian flu. The purpose of the two-day exercise in Paris, organized by the UNWTO, is to hone coordination within countries as well as across borders in the event of a regional or global crisis.“The tourism sector is committed to being fully prepared in the event of a pandemic,” Mr. Lipman said. A special portal has been launched at www.sos.travel to help travellers and the industry in case of such an emergency. 29 March 2007Making a watchword of preparedness, officials from 30 countries today wrapped up a two-day United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) meeting in Paris where they reviewed responses to a potential outbreak of a new strain of influenza caused by bird flu.
Les apéros Facebook de Lille et de Vitry-le-François interditsFrance – Les préfets du Nord et de la Marne ont interdit les apéros géants, dits “apéros Facebook”, qui devaient avoir lieu à Lille et à Vitry-le-François samedi prochain. Motif invoqué : l’absence d’organisateur. Brice Hortefeux, le ministre de l’Intérieur, avait en effet envoyé la semaine dernière aux préfets des consignes de fermeté, afin de garantir l’ordre public et la sécurité.Ont également été évoqués le nombre très important de participants à l’évènement ainsi que la consommation d’alcool. Même si aucune interdiction n’a été mise en place, les préfets doivent gérer les situations au cas par cas, et ici aucun organisateur ou “initiateur” n’a été identifié.Ces mesures ont été prises suite au décès d’un jeune homme de 21 ans lors d’un apéro géant qui avait eu lieu à Nantes il y a deux semaines.

Sporting director Rafael Alkorta confirmed Athletic Bilbao’s interest in re-signing former stars Ander Herrera and Fernando LlorenteBoth players will be out of contract at the end of the season at Manchester United and Tottenham respectively.Herrera, who’s been at United since 2014, is understood to be in talks over a new deal, while Llorente could leave Spurs in this month’s transfer window.The 33-year-old striker has previously expressed an interest in rejoining Athletic, where he spent eight years at and scored 111 goals in 327 games, after growing tired of playing second fiddle to Harry Kane at Spurs.Now Alkorta has confirmed Athletic’s interest in Herrera and Llorente along with two other stars.Zidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.“We are interested in Javi Martinez, Ibai [Gomez], Ander Herrera, Llorente…” Alkorta told Cadena Ser.“It’s obvious that any player that can play for Athletic is of interest to us.“Nothing is easy but we are interested in having all of the ones that can come. We have not made any moves yet. We will start on Tuesday and we will see what can be done.”Athletic secured their third win of La Liga this season by beating Celta Vigo 2-1 on Monday night after goals from Iker Muniain and Iñaki Williams.The Basque club are now 16th in the standings and two points above the drop zone.
A 17-year-boy was killed in a single-vehicle crash Wednesday evening in Ridgefield.The crash was reported to police at 7:38 p.m. in the 28800 block of Northwest Main Avenue.A pickup truck driver took a hard left turn to go south on Main Avenue and lost control of the vehicle, said Battalion Chief Tim Dawdy, spokesman for Clark County Fire & Rescue. The pickup ended up on its top.The driver was uninjured, but the passenger, a 17-year-old boy, was pronounced dead at the scene, Dawdy said.Clark County Fire & Rescue has responded to crashes in the same spot that stemmed from the hard left turn. The road does not get much traffic, Dawdy said.Police blocked off traffic to investigate. A medical examiner was dispatched to the site of the accident.The teen’s name was not released.
Whether you call it locking up land or protecting it, wilderness designation raises some profound cultural, biological and management questions.

Jessica Fox stands outside her home, which was badly damaged by the Nov. 30 earthquake. Fox said her porch was level before the earthquake hit. (Photo: Elizabeth Harball/Alaska’s Energy Desk)On a quiet side street in Anchorage’s Sand Lake neighborhood, a yellow sign appeared Wednesday on resident Chris George’s front door.“RESTRICTED USE,” it states in bold, capital letters, with a handwritten note beneath: “Not recommended to occupy until engineer evaluation of foundation and soils.”George is still living there, though, with his son and mother.“Nowhere else to go,” George said.The sign was placed there by the city. It’s the beginning of an inspection process that could take weeks, showing how Anchorage is still coming to grips with the extent of the damage to buildings and homes following the magnitude 7.0 earthquake that struck the region on Nov. 30.As of Dec. 6, the municipality had declared 33 buildings and homes unsafe to occupy, most in Eagle River, one of the hardest-hit areas. Another 149 are labeled with yellow “restricted use” signs.As the municipality continues inspecting neighborhoods and homes, those numbers are expected to climb.Anchorage resident Chris George stands next to the sign the city posted on his door following the Nov. 30 earthquake. (Photo: Elizabeth Harball/Alaska’s Energy Desk)An inspector told George the earthquake caused his house to sink about six inches. The damage to his home isn’t immediately noticeable driving by, but a closer inspection reveals that things are slightly askew. The deck is tilted, and there’s a crack between the roof of his carport and the wall.About a half-dozen other homes have yellow signs on George’s street. They indicate the homes are damaged and need inspection and repairs.That’s better than a red sign, which means a home is unfit to occupy.George said he is still figuring out next steps. He doesn’t have earthquake insurance and at this point, he has no idea how much fixing his home will cost.But, he said, “I’m pretty lucky because a lot of other people got it a lot worse…I’m not complaining, really.”George’s next-door neighbor, Jessica Fox, also got a yellow sign. She described the damage from the couch in her living room, beneath a line of wind chimes that started ringing when the ground shook a week ago.“The morning of, we realized that our house sank and actually split in half,” Fox said.The split wasn’t immediately visible from the living room, but one of the side rooms angles away from the rest of the house. Fox had been told it’s not safe to go inside. Her front porch slopes down towards her house at a more extreme angle. And Fox has a series of photos on her computer documenting even more extensive damage beneath her home, showing twisted beams and a crack in the foundation running the full length of the house.Fox said she’s looking into what it would take to make repairs, but after a conversation with a contractor, she wasn’t feeling hopeful.“Because of how the house was built and how it sank, it’s probably going to be deemed a total loss,” Fox said.Fox does have earthquake insurance. But that doesn’t mean the process is going to easy. She said she’s lived in this home for 15 years.“It was the first house that my husband and I got together,” Fox said. “Our kids have grown up here.”The municipality doesn’t yet have a good sense of how many other Anchorage homeowners are dealing with similar problems. After checking commercial buildings, hospitals and schools, the city’s building inspectors have had just a few days to look at homes, according to Don Hickel, lead structural inspector with the municipality of Anchorage.Hickel said many homes still need to be inspected and they can only work in daylight hours. Still, they are trying to at least lay eyes on every neighborhood in Anchorage.“It’s going to take some time,” Hickel said.That means in the coming days and weeks, more red, yellow and green signs will start to pop up around the Anchorage area.According Ross Noffsinger with the municipality’s Development Services Department, the signs don’t trigger anything related to insurance or government assistance. They’re posted simply for safety purposes.Still, as far as the city’s concerned, most Anchorage buildings performed well in the earthquake. Anchorage Mayor Ethan Berkowitz said it’s not surprising the city is continuing to find homes with damage.“The level of damage is something you can anticipate from an earthquake of this magnitude,” Berkowitz said. “We need to remember how fortunate we are that nobody was killed, there were very few injuries, and that whatever is a material thing that was broken can be replaced.”To request an inspection from the city, Anchorage-area homeowners can go to the website muni.org. More resources are available at the website ready.alaska.gov. Residents can also call the State Individual Disaster Assistance Hotline at 1-855-445-7131.
On the same day that they revealed a 2.5-pound Ultrabook measuring just 0.39 inches thick, Acer also showed off another model that weighed 17.6 pounds and probably eats Ultrabooks to power itself.This mammoth new machine is the Predator 21X, with the 21 referring to the diagonal measurement of its curved IPS display, and the X referring to the extra everything that Acer decided to cram inside its cavernous shell. Seriously, the hardware in this thing is absolutely insane. As insane as the $5,000 price tag Acer plans to slap on it.Let’s start with the normal stuff. It’s powered by an Intel Kaby Lake processor and has 802.11ac+ WiFi, gigabit Ethernet, and several USB ports (two type-a and “at least” one type-c). The rest of the Predator 21X’s components aren’t exactly typical laptop fare.The keyboard, for example, is mechanical and uses Cherry MX switches. The Predator 21X’s numeric keypad isn’t mechanical, but it does do backflips: you can turn it over if you need a gigantic touchpad to mouse around with. It also has dual GPUs — Nvidia GTX1080s, to be specific. Sound is pumped — nay, pounded — out through four speakers and two subwoofers. Its webcam? It supports eye-tracking, so you can glare at targets in some games to lock in headshots. Even though this thing is brimming with USB ports, you won’t need to worry about external storage. You can just keep popping drives into another one of the laptop’s five internal bays until you’re satisfied with the total number of terabytes.Want to hook up an external monitor? Not a problem. In fact, why not hook up three? The Predator 21X has two DisplayPort and one HDMI output options, so you’ll never have to worry about feeling limited by its single, puny 21-inch screen.With this kind of hardware, the Predator 21X can’t be powered by an ordinary laptop brick. No, it takes a pair of AC adapters to supply enough juice to keep it running. We’ll assume you can just plug them into an ordinary wall outlet, but who knows? You might have to get an electrician to come wire in something that’s more like an EV charger. The swirling blue pattern here is actually the souls of Acer’s design team which are doomed to an eternity of servitude to the Predator 21X.<><>
A Pallas’s long-tongued bat, representing one of six species used in the new study. Bat researchers from the biology departments of the University of Western Ontario and the University of Regina (Saskatchewan, Ca) theorized that the amount of ethanol in the fermented fruit and nectars that the bats ingested was likely to induce intoxication.The researchers gave “sobriety tests” to 106 bats, representing six species of New World Leaf-nosed bats, after the bats had consumed enough ethanol to bring their blood alcohol content (BAC) up to 0.3 or higher. (The legal limit of BAC for human drivers is .08!) The bat BAC levels were attained by feeding the test bats ethanol mixed with sugar water. Their control group counterparts received just the plain sugar water.The bats took flight in a researcher-constructed obstacle course in which the bats would have to navigate according to five standard identifiable flying behaviors of phyllostomide bats. Otherwise, they would betray their drunkenness. Additionally, the biologists expected the alcohol to alter the bats’ echolation, or calling behavior, so they recorded the bats with ultrasonic condenser microphones.”We went into the study fully expecting that some of the species wouldn’t be able to hold their drink,” study co-author Brock Fenton, from the University of Western Ontario, told National Geographic News.But once the bats went through the test – some, mind you, with three times higher BAC than a drunk driver – the researchers found no measurable change in either flight or calling behaviors. A prior study conducted with Old World bats dieting on seasonal fruit and nectar reported signs that bat motor skills and echolation were clearly affected by the ethanol content in their diets. Apparently, the New World bats, exposed to high-ethanol products all year round, have developed an alcohol tolerance that has “afforded them an evolutionary edge.” Fenton and his colleagues are now trying “to find a company that sells alcoholic refreshments who will sponsor an expanded study.” (PhysOrg.com) — New World Leaf-nosed bats (Chiroptera Phyllostomidae) are thriving in the tropical forests of Central and South America, even though their diets consist of more fruits and nectars than their counterparts in the Old World. Strange thing is the phyllostomide bats are drawn to fruits and nectars even after they have fermented.

Kolkata: Stating that the country is experiencing a state of “super emergency”, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has assured that her fight of justice for the people will continue, even if lakhs of FIRs are lodged against her and her party colleagues.While reacting on the FIR lodged against her and the arrest of her party’s MPs, MLA and minister at Silchar, the Chief Minister said: “They keep lodging FIRs against us. It is interesting that I am sitting in Bengal and an FIR has been lodged in Assam…we don’t mind even if 1 lakh FIRs are lodged against us for fighting for the rights of common people.” Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeBanerjee said that she has spoken to the Union Home minister Rajnath Singh during her visit to Delhi and the latter has assured her that there will be no harassment of common people. “My question is that then why have our MPs been harassed today?” she asked.She maintained in the same breath: “We are actually in a situation of super-emergency. There is no democracy in the country.”Condemning the arrest of her party colleagues, the Chief Minister said: “They went there for a better cause. My question is that if everything is normal and peaceful in Assam, then why has section 144 of CrPC been imposed in all the districts? Why were they (TMC MPs, MLA and minister) stopped when two of them wanted to go ahead at a time instead of marching together in a group? They just wanted to go to the convention centre and return after speaking to some people there.” “Our fight will continue for the sake of common people. We will never step back,” she added.She further added that there is no democratic right in the country. “Senior journalists are being beaten up,” she said, adding that the Army personnel from Assam, who are deployed in borders, are also worried about their family members.

Tulum, Q.R. — Taxi drivers of the Tiburones del Caribe syndicate partially block the federal highway heading toward the Tulum Hotel Zone and National Park Monday in protest of their limited access to the national park.Members of the Tiburones del Caribe union intermittently blocked the coastal road Monday morning in protest against new rules of La Comisión Nacional de Áreas Naturales Protegidas (Conanp).Dozens of taxi drivers began lining the highway on both sides around 9:30 a.m. as they placed large red traffic cones across half of the highway. The group were protesting the limited park entry being put into place for taxi drivers.Tulum taxi drivers are hoping representatives of Morena in Quintana Roo will allow them to again work within the Tulum National Park Tulum after members of the National Commission of Natural Protected Areas (Conanp) demanded that they withdraw from the area, saying the taxi drivers were affecting traffic as well as the natural environment of the area.According to a bill signed in the middle of the year, only 23 taxi drivers are permitted entry to sites assigned by the interior of the Plataforma Nacional de Transparencia.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)

Air New Zealand launches Sustainability FrameworkAir New Zealand has today launched a new Sustainability Framework as part of its commitment to helping supercharge our nation’s success.Chief Executive Officer Christopher Luxon unveiled the framework along with several sustainability initiatives at an event for business leaders in Auckland this morning (NZ time).“We see the success of our business as being inextricably linked to the success of our country – Air New Zealand needs a strong and prosperous New Zealand and in turn, New Zealand needs a successful and thriving national airline,” says Mr Luxon.“Given the significance of this business to New Zealand we have signed ourselves up to a mission and purpose bigger than ourselves – that is to supercharge New Zealand’s success – socially, environmentally and economically.”The airline’s new Sustainability Framework sets out how it will contribute to supercharging New Zealand’s success. The economic, social, and environmental pillars of the framework are supported by six key focus areas – the airline’s people; the communities it operates within; carbon, nature and science; tourism and trade and enterprise.Mr Luxon says Air New Zealand recognises that to be successful in its sustainability journey the airline requires advice from global experts. It has formed a Sustainability Advisory Panel made up of New Zealand and international experts with specialist knowledge. They are:· Sir Jonathon Porritt, Co-Founder and Director, Forum for the Future (United Kingdom)· Dame Anne Salmond, New Zealand anthropologist, writer and distinguished professor of Maori Studies, University of Auckland (New Zealand)· Rob Fenwick CNZM, entrepreneur, director and conservationist (New Zealand)· Derek Handley, social entrepreneur, Founder of Aera Foundation (New Zealand)· Suzanne Hunt, Founder and President, HuntGreen LLC and biofuels expert (United States)· Brian Pearce, Chief Economist, International Air Transport Association (Switzerland)Mr Luxon and Air New Zealand’s Chief Flight Operations and Safety Officer, Captain David Morgan, who has responsibility for sustainability at the airline, also sit on the panel.Sir Jonathon Porritt emphasised how important it is to see a large New Zealand company take sustainability seriously, both for the company itself and for the New Zealand economy as a whole.“We’ve been able to convene a group of people with enormous expertise in different areas of the sustainability agenda. What excites us is the opportunity to support Air New Zealand in its goal of becoming one of the world’s most sustainable airlines.”Mr Luxon says the actions to be delivered under the sustainability framework have been driven in part by insights gleaned from its staff and customers.“Earlier this year we conducted a significant piece of research, asking how people thought Air New Zealand should ‘supercharge New Zealand’s success’. Key themes to emerge from the research were around enabling knowledge and inspiration as well as helping young Kiwis and emerging businesses to succeed. In the coming year we’ll be launching several significant initiatives that support these themes.”Source = Air New Zealand
