The Earth is Our Drug Dealer

first_imgAs I was reading about a bill in the Georgia legislature (unlikely to pass) forcing utilities to stop buying coal from mountaintop removal, it occurred to me that our dependence on fossil fuels and the havoc that they are wreaking on the environment is kind of a cruel joke played on us by the Earth.Free samples mean customers for lifeIt’s like the story of drug dealers passing out free samples to kids. Then, once they are hooked, there is a built in clientele. For the first 100 years or so, coal and oil were cheap and easy; we didn’t see (or we ignored) most of the downside. Now we understand the problems, but we are as addicted as a junkie is to his regular fix. When an addict has a support network they may have an intervention or go to treatment, and many of them succeed in kicking their habit.The system steers us away from smart thinkingThe big question for the planet is this: do we have enough of a support network to kick our habit? Our dealers (coal and oil companies) do not appear to be interested in helping us out. A bad combination of strong profits and regulation in many areas (particularly the Southeast US) that encourages rather than discourages more power generation gives them little incentive to reduce fossil fuel use. In those few areas where regulations encourage energy efficiency by utilities (the Western US comes to mind), per capita energy use has declined while it continues to rise in most other areas. So we have these islands of efficiency, places that have succeeded (at least partially) in “kicking their habit”, surrounded by the rest of us, happily smoking our “crack pipes” (oil and coal) day in and day out. They must be pretty ticked off at the rest of us.Forget about the earth, save yourself!Environmentalists often speak of saving the earth. The real issue, however, is saving humanity. We are the irritating boil on the earth, causing most, if not all, of the problems. Once we are gone, the earth will, over many millennia, very likely heal itself quite well. This century-plus addiction of ours may just be a cruel joke played on us by our planet – it has plenty of time to wait out our demise, after which it can go back to business as usual.last_img read more

Milk, vegetables supply further hit in Rajasthan as farmers’ agitation continues

first_imgPrices of vegetables soared amid disruptions in supplies while procurement of milk was also hit in parts of Rajasthan as farmers’ agitation entered the fourth day on Monday.“Jaipur Dairy alone has suffered a loss of nearly ₹1 crore as ‘anti-social elements’ spilled nearly 60,000 litres of milk on roads. Twelve tankers were vandalised. Jaipur Dairy has lodged 8-9 FIRs for damaging and manhandling employees,” Jaipur Dairy chairman Om Prakash Punia told PTI. He said that problems are being witnessed in Sikar, Chomu, Kaladera and parts of Jaipur. Vegetable prices have shot up by 25-30% in Jaipur due to ongoing farmers’ agitation. The prices of vegetables have increased by 25-30% in the last three days because of restricted supply due to the farmers’ agitation, a vegetable vendor at Muhana vegetable market said. Vegetables are supplied in Muhana mandi, Lal Kothi mandi and to other retail markets in the city from areas like Sanganer and Chomu (Jaipur) but farmers are not supplying to the mandis (large wholesale markets), he added. Meanwhile, farmers’ body holding agitation in the State has blamed “anti-social elements” for spilling milk on roads and disrupting milk procurement.Protests have been peaceful and successful. Anti-social elements are behind disrupting milk procurement and spilling it on roads. We have set up milk points for consumers outside city limits for urban population, a core committee member of the Rashtriya Kisan Mahasangh said. The 10-day Gaon Bandh (rural shutdown) farmer protest was called ahead of the first anniversary of the death of several farmers in police firing in Mandsaur of Madhya Pradesh, which sections of farmers supported in Rajasthan as well. The protest started on Friday demanding loan waiver, higher prices for their produce and immediate implementation of the Swaminathan Commission report on farming.last_img read more

HHI Wins USD 500 Mn ASLNG Construction Deal

first_imgzoom Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) has secured a USD 500 million construction contract for a floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility dubbed At-Shore LNG (ASLNG).Under the tentative deal, HHI has been entrusted with the front-end engineering design (FEED) for the hull of the ASLNG and its subsequent construction.The concept, developed by Canadian Steelhead LNG, makes use of floating LNG production and storage units moored to marine jetties.The facility, with a length of 340 meters, a width of 60 meters and a weight of 74,000 tons, can store up to 280,000 cubic meters of liquefied natural gas in its hull.Steelhead LNG, a Canadian company based out of Vancouver, plans to use the facility for its Kwispaa LNG project, which is expected to produce 6 million tons of LNG per annum, once it becomes operational in 2024. The produced LNG will then be shipped by gas carriers to buyer countries.Steelhead LNG is expected to launch an international tender for the facility’s topside and on-shore facilities in the second quarter and proceed with their design order in the third quarter of this year, HHI said.The proposed natural gas liquefaction and export facility was given the go-ahead after a Huu-ay-aht community referendum resulted in a 70 percent vote in favor in March 2017.The Kwispaa LNG Project would be located on Huu-ay-aht owned land at Sarita Bay,  about 70 kilometres southwest of Port Alberni at the southern end of the Alberni Inlet on Vancouver Island.The National Energy Board (NEB) granted Steelhead LNG four export licenses (up to 24 million tonnes per annum) to export liquefied natural gas for 25 years.last_img read more

US Women Are Stronger In The Tennis World Than US Men

American men’s tennis is at a nadir. No Grand Slam singles champion in 11 years. No Grand Slam singles semifinalist in over five years. The U.S. Open unfolding now in New York is the 12th straight Grand Slam without an American man in the quarterfinals, and the seventh of the last eight with none in the fourth round.1The only active American man to even reach a major semifinal is Robby Ginepri, who is 31 and ranked 204th in the world.American women’s tennis is led by the No. 1 player in the world, Serena Williams, who has won 17 Grand Slam titles and remains the favorite to win the U.S. Open for the third year in a row.I wondered, though: Are the American women a stronger force in world tennis than the American men are? Beyond Serena and Venus Williams — who are 32 and 34 years old, respectively — are the women any deeper and stronger than the men?To check, I downloaded the latest singles rankings from both the men’s ATP World Tour and the women’s WTA tour — every player in the world who has a professional ranking point, even just one.As of Aug. 25, the start of the U.S. Open, there are 2,232 ranked men and 1,323 ranked women. About one in 12 of the ranked women are from the U.S., more than from any other nation (Russia trails narrowly). U.S. men make up one in 16 of all ranked professional players, tied with France for most in the world.Counting ranked players is a pretty rough gauge of national tennis strength. A player outside the Top 500 will appear in few tour events, let alone Grand Slams. Getting a ranking can be a product of opportunity as much as merit. An American player who’s just as good as, say, an Algerian player lives much closer to events where he can earn points, and therefore doesn’t have to spend as much to play.So I went beyond merely counting ranked players and added up the ranking points for each nation. This is a decent proxy for how much money players have earned in the sport, because ranking points generally scale with earnings. The bigger the tournament, the more points and dollars are available; and the further a player advances, the bigger a piece of the pie she earns. By this math, Serena Williams’s 2,000 points for winning the U.S Open last year — which still counts in the latest 52-week ranking — is worth slightly more than No. 24 Sloane Stephens’s cumulative tennis accomplishments in the last year. And Serena’s annual achievements are worth about five Sloanes in national tennis strength.That feels about right. Having lots of Top 100 players is nice in the first couple of days of a Grand Slam tournament. Having one player who can consistently reach the last couple of days of a Grand Slam is much nicer.Here, the U.S. women dominate their peers, and their male counterparts. They hog 12 percent of the world’s female tennis talent — half again as much as runner-up Russia. The U.S. men have just 5 percent of global male talent. The U.S. trails four European nations — Spain, France, Serbia and Switzerland — that combined have less than one-half the population of the U.S.Just five years ago, American men and women were much closer in their global tennis standing. American men held 8 percent of tennis ranking points, compared to 10 percent for women. The women have rebounded slightly while the men have lost ground.American men’s tennis boosters can point to a few reasonable explanations. First, the men’s long-term slump is less precipitous than the women’s. I checked by downloading pre-U.S. Open rankings data from the ATP and WTA websites for prior years, with major help from my colleague, Paul Schreiber. At this stage of the season in 1999 — the first year for which WTA ranking data is available on the WTA website — American women commanded 21 percent of global tennis power. American men held 11 percent. The men have narrowed the gender gap even as they have fallen further behind the rest of the world.2Any comparison can look different depending on which dates we choose to start and end with. The U.S. men’s slow decline over the last 15 years followed a crash, from 26 percent heading into the 1990 U.S. Open and 18 percent in 1994.Globalization also has brought more competition to the men’s game. Over the last few decades, the sport’s footprint has expanded further beyond the traditional bases in the four Grand Slam-hosting nations (the U.S., U.K., France and Australia). This is particularly so in the men’s game. That’s partly because of unequal opportunities; many countries still haven’t given girls the same chance to play sports as boys, or have done so only recently. Economic incentives have also favored the men: The Grand Slams equalized pay only seven years ago, and many other tournaments still pay men more than women. There also are more men’s professional events, which helps explain why there are more ranked male players than female players.The result is that 104 countries have ranked men, compared to just 79 countries with ranked women. That represents an increase of 14 countries from this time in 1999 for the men, but a rise of just four countries for the women.American women also are competing with fewer talent bases around the world. Russia is the only other country with at least 5 percent of the world’s ranked women. Three other countries besides the U.S. have a share that big of all ranked men.Another way to understand the men’s relative struggles is that the Williams sisters might be outliers who skew the whole comparison. Their story often has been described as one of the most remarkable in sports history, and rightly so. Their parents, Richard Williams and Oracene Price, trained them at a very young age with the goal of making each the No. 1 player in the world. Their daughters each achieved that audacious goal, and did so outside the well funded national centers. They have remained so good, past the age that most other women’s greats retired, that they account today for more than one-third of all U.S. women’s ranking points.What if the Williams family had never picked up tennis rackets? Then U.S. women would account for less than 8 percent of global talent today, much closer to their male counterparts.3Comparable earlier figures are 5 percent before the 2009 U.S. Open, 13 percent in 2004 and 17 percent in 1999. American women other than the Williams sisters have rebounded slightly after a steep decline. That group includes a number of young players who could one day enter the Top 10 but so far have performed inconsistently, including Stephens, Christina McHale and Madison Keys. None of them — nor the other three American women who rank behind the two Williams sisters but inside the Top 50 — reached the third round of the U.S. Open.4Remove John Isner and Donald Young, the top two American men, from the sport and the U.S. men’s share of global pro tennis power drops just one percentage point, to 4 percent.Here’s an even more outrageous hypothetical: What if Richard and Oracene had trained two young sons instead of daughters, and Jupiter and Steve had the same success that Venus and Serena have had? American men would hog a greater portion of global tennis talent than American women would today.While that scenario is farfetched, it is rooted in the reality of a sport usually dominated by just a few superstars. Even when American tennis was much deeper than it is today, one or two singular talents carried most of the load for winning big tournaments and contending for No. 1. Jimmy Connors and John McEnroe gave way to Pete Sampras, Jim Courier and Andre Agassi. Those men won 41 of American men’s 46 Grand Slams in the last 42 years. Maybe it’s just a fluke that another player with that kind of talent hasn’t come around since Sampras and Agassi retired — or hasn’t played tennis.As it happens, Richard Williams, who is 72, has a two-year-old son. But if Richard has his way, Dylan won’t help pick up the mantle for the American men. “He’ll never be a billionaire in tennis,” Richard Williams said earlier this year. He wants his son to buy a gold mine. read more

Lavender leads Buckeyes to Big Ten Tournament title

INDIANAPOLIS — The Ohio State women’s basketball team slogged through confetti and streamers as it cut down the nets after claiming its third consecutive Big Ten Tournament title Sunday. Following a Feb. 6 loss to Northwestern at the Schottenstein Center, the Buckeyes had a 4-6 record in Big Ten conference play, and their future seemed bleak. Fast-forward to 3:30 p.m. Sunday. OSU (22-9), the Big Ten Tournament’s No. 5-seeded team, was tipping off in the championship game against No. 2-seeded Penn State (24-9) at Conseco Fieldhouse. Fast-forward again to about 5:25 p.m. At that moment, the Buckeyes were hoisting the Big Ten Tournament championship trophy above their heads at midcourt as confetti showered over them. The title was the fourth in program history. Senior center Jantel Lavender and junior guard Samantha Prahalis propelled the Buckeyes to the victory, grabbing a game-high 23 points apiece. Lavender, Prahalis and sophomore guard Tayler Hill were named to the Big Ten All-Tournament team. Lavender was also named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player. The Buckeyes’ heroes of the quarterfinal and semifinal rounds were senior guard Brittany Johnson and Lavender, respectively, and it appeared that Prahalis assumed that role in the first half against Penn State. The Lady Lions led, 12-8, at the first media timeout, thanks to a balanced offensive attack led by junior guard Zhaque Gray. Prahalis had an early answer for Gray, scoring six points in the first half during a 13-4 run that put OSU ahead, 21-12, with just more than 11 minutes until halftime. The teams went on to match each other nearly bucket for bucket, for much of the first half. Prahalis continued to drive the Buckeyes’ offense, accumulating 14 points and three assists. Prahalis said Penn State’s defense allowed her open looks at the basket. “I had a lane,” she said. “Every night is different for me. It’s just what the game brings.” Lavender added nine points of her own as OSU took a 44-39 lead to finish the half. But eight points from Gray and 12 from Penn State sophomore guard Alex Bentley meant the Big Ten title was far from decided. But the Buckeyes were within 20 minutes of accomplishing a goal that seemed unattainable in early February. A determined Lavender opened up a personal 6-0 run to extend the Buckeyes’ lead. Then, a steal and some quick passing led to an easy layup for her, which extended the lead to 59-46 in the second half. OSU supporters cheered, and Lavender signaled to the fans for even more noise as she ran back on defense. Hill drilled a step-back jumper to increase the Buckeyes’ advantage to 63-49 with less than 13 minutes remaining. OSU was on its way. Penn State redshirt sophomore forward Mia Nickson scored 15 points, with 11 coming in the second half. But it wasn’t enough to help the Lady Lions claw back into the contest. Bentley misfired on numerous 3-point attempts as OSU extended its lead. Johnson missed a 15-foot jumper after nearly letting the shot clock expire, and Lavender hauled in the offensive rebound with 2:12 remaining. The Buckeyes retained possession for the remainder of the game, coasting to an 84-70 win. Lavender credited the win, at least in part, to OSU’s experience in prior Big Ten title games. “I definitely think our experience here has helped us win this game,” Lavender said. “I think us having that experience in the last three years (helped us to) just deal with three games in three days.” That’s exactly what the Buckeyes did. OSU had to overcome No. 4-seeded Iowa, No. 1-seeded Michigan State and No. 2-seeded Penn State before the indoor fireworks could be detonated overhead at Conseco Fieldhouse. Each opponent presented a different challenge, but the Buckeyes were up to the task. By virtue of its 10-6 regular-season record in conference play, OSU earned a bye into the tournament’s quarterfinals and began play Friday against the Hawkeyes (22-8). Lavender and Prahalis, the Buckeyes’ top two scorers, were slow to get involved on the offensive end of the court that night, but Johnson picked up the slack. Johnson scored a season-high 23 points on 8-of-16 shooting, and her 7-of-14 shooting from 3-point range was instrumental in OSU’s 71-61 win. “I was just in the zone, I guess,” Johnson said following the game. “I just wanted to step up and help my teammates out. That’s what I did.” After her team suffered elimination from the tournament, Iowa coach Lisa Bluder said Johnson is a threat on the court. “You’ve got to know where she is all the time,” Bluder said. “She is a really, really good 3-point shooter.” On day three of the tournament, OSU played Michigan State (26-5) with a berth in the championship game on the line. Lykendra Johnson, Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year, was standing between the Buckeyes and a third consecutive tournament title — literally. But Lavender made quick work of her with a historic performance. Lavender torched the Spartans for 37 points, a Big Ten Tournament single-game scoring record, en route to a 72-57 win. Lavender also tied the tournament’s single-game record with 15 field goals on 15-of-20 shooting to help the Buckeyes get to Sunday’s championship game. With his team on the doorstep of history, OSU coach Jim Foster lauded the Buckeyes’ focus after Saturday’s win. “We’re smart enough, patient enough,” Foster said. “Good teams don’t get real high and don’t get real low. We just go about our business.” Despite her record-breaking performance, Lavender did not emphasize her personal accomplishments, but focused instead on what her team did well in its three wins against the Spartans this year. “The times that we’ve played Michigan State our team has really (understood) who we are as a team,” Lavender said. “It’s not any different situation, except for the number by our team is No. 5, and I think we’re playing like the No. 1 seed right now.” Lavender said after Saturday’s win that she “likes playing at Conseco Fieldhouse.” Sunday’s championship game against the Lady Lions afforded her, along with senior teammates Johnson, guard Alison Jackson and forward Sarah Schulze, a chance to exit the arena as Big Ten champion one last time. Foster said the 2010–11 team is better than the previous two teams he coached to Big Ten titles. “I would say this was the best team of the last three,” Foster said. “I think how we won this is a reflection of that.” With the win, the Buckeyes clinched the Big Ten’s automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament. The Buckeyes now await the announcement of their seeding and opponent. With the NCAA Tournament still to come, Prahalis said her team has a good sense of where it is and where it’s been. “We’re very confident,” she said. “We don’t forget where we was a month ago. All we have is each other.” OSU will represent the Big Ten in the NCAA Tournament for the ninth consecutive year. read more

Argentina announce Cesar Luis Menotti as their director

first_imgThe Argentina Football Association finally made the decision to appoint legendary Cesar Luis Menotti, to be their National Team’s Director on Monday.As the new Argentina board of directors have managed to keep the National Team a float in the last few years, they needed to make a massive point by signing someone like Cesar Luis Menotti for an important position in the federation and they just announced him this Monday.The legendary former manager reportedly declined the position as the National Team coach, he doesn’t feel like he will deliver good results given his advanced age and he is not interested on having stress problems at this point in his life.But Menotti has always been very interested in what happens to his beloved National Team, which is the reason he agreed to sign a new contract as the new National Teams’ Director and will start his new job effective immediately.The Argentina Football Association (AFA), made the announcement on Monday and posted a picture of him and chairman Claudio Tapia shaking hands while closing the deal that binds Menotti to the squad in this new position.The input that Cesar Luis can give to the younger national teams is very valuable, he will make sure that the right decisions are made in Argentina from now on.El ex entrenador de @Argentina, César Luis Menotti, será Director de Selecciones Nacionales.

Cole blasts Ozils situation at Arsenal as a comedy sketch

first_imgFormer striker Andy Cole is bewildered by Unai Emery’s “strange” decision to not play Mesut Ozil at Arsenal.The German playmaker has only started half of Arsenal’s 26 Premier League matches this season amid struggles to force his way into Emery’s plans.In fact, Ozil has only featured twice for the Gunners in 2019 due to both fitness struggles and Emery’s decision to omit from matchday squads.Despite recovering from an illness this week and returning to training, Ozil was again left out by the Spanish coach for Arsenal’s 1-0 Europa League defeat to BATE Borisov in Belarus on Thursday night.And Cole, who started out his playing career at Arsenal before going on to star for rivals Manchester United, admits he can’t understand why Emery refuses to play someone of Ozil’s calibre.“It’s becoming a bit of a comedy sketch at the moment,” Cole told Sky Sports. “We know how talented he is.“The manager has decided maybe he doesn’t want him in the team, he doesn’t work hard enough or whatever, but sometimes when you have that luxury, I think some of the boys in the team would be prepared to work a little bit harder to get him on the ball to produce that magic.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“Arsenal over the previous years, when Wenger was there, did that. You’ve got to play your best players when you need them, and Ozil is one of Arsenal’s best.“If you asked [Alexandre] Lacazette and [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang: ‘Do you want Mesut to play?’ they’d say yes all day long, all day long! It’s really, really strange.”On the other hand, former Celtic manager Neil Lennon expects there will be plenty of interest in the “divisive” Ozil should he leave Arsenal this summer.“You have a talent like that, and it might come down to man management,” said Lennon.“He has certainly been a divisive character over the last few years. He’s like Marmite, some love him, some don’t! For me, I love watching him play.“He does get criticised a lot for his work rate, or lack of work rate, but his stats are up there for distance covered with many other players. He will certainly find a place somewhere, because he’s got the game.”LONDON, ENGLAND – JANUARY 29: Mesut Ozil of Arsenal during the Premier League match between Arsenal FC and Cardiff City at Emirates Stadium on January 29, 2019 in London, United Kingdom.

New IIHS crash tests give stars for saving pedestrians

first_img More From Roadshow Roadshow 3:20 The new safety tests that start in 2020 will simulate three common pedestrian accident situations: An adult crossing the road as cars approach at both 12 and 25 mphA child popping out from between parked cars, again with cars coming at 12 and 25 mphAn adult walking along the right hand side of the road as cars come up at 25 and 37 mphNew IIHS pedestrian collision ratings arrive at a time of increased pedestrian fatalities, believed to be partly caused by the profusion of high-fronted SUVs that impact chests and heads more than just legs. IIHS Points are awarded based on how well the car detected the pedestrian and slowed, and for how well it alerted the driver — we aren’t in the fully autonomous world yet. This new battery of tests is being added now for three reasons: 1. The number of pedestrians killed by cars in the US spiked over 45% from 2009 to 2017, a much higher rate than the 10% increase in overall auto fatalities during the same period. Reasons often cited include phones distracting drivers and pedestrians, a profusion of SUVs with taller front ends that impact pedestrian heads and chests, not just legs, and pedestrians being drunk in a third of the cases.ped-fatalsPedestrian fatalities are up around 45% since 2009 and have grown from 12% of all car accident fatalities to 16%. That sounds alarm bells. NHTSA 2. Affordable, mainstream cars like the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe offer the tech to do something about pedestrian impacts, including forward sensors and automatic emergency braking systems. Forty countries have agreed to require automatic emergency braking on new cars as of 2020, though the US has not signed on to that pledge.3. Avoidance technology has been around long enough for insurance industry data to confirm that cars with it are involved in about a third fewer pedestrian collision claims. And never lose sight of the fact that IIHS star ratings, and the showroom appeal they create, are as much a way to force carmakers to build vehicles that result in fewer claims, as they are a service to help you buy a safe car. The new tests will be added to Top Safety Pick criteria in 2020, but a few vehicles have already been subjected to them, with the highest scores going to the Subaru Forester, Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4 and the Volvo XC40. eyesightTechnologies like Subaru’s highly regarded Eyesight camera system are driving collision avoidance deep into the affordable car category.

Mother of Trayvon Martin Announces Run for Local Office

first_imgBy ELLIS RUA Associated PressMIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — The mother of the unarmed Black teen who was shot dead by a neighborhood watch volunteer in Florida in 2012 has formally announced her candidacy to run for local office.Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, spoke to supporters Monday at a small event space tucked away inside of a Miami Gardens shopping plaza. She announced her plans to challenge Miami Gardens Mayor Oliver Gilbert for a Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners seat that is up for grabs in 2020 because of term limits.In this April 3, 2019 photo, Sybrina Fulton participates in a panel at the National Action Network Convention in New York. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig, File)With her 28-year-old son, Jahvaris Fulton, and several other family members and friends at her side, Fulton stood at the podium in front of an audience of locals and pleaded her case.Fulton, a self-described political outsider who is from the district, said she has been mulling a run for office for about a year. She said she had never intended to get involved in politics, and that the political world left “a sour taste” in her mouth.She added that if it was not for her son’s killing, she would have been “going on vacations every year” and planning to retire.But after being thrust into the national spotlight after her son’s death, she slowly began to realize that she “needed to become a part of the change.”Fulton, who worked as a county employee for 24 years, became a full-time activist, making appearances on national television, campaigning for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election and starting a South Florida-based organization that aims to end “senseless gun violence.”“When my son got shot down, I stood up,” said Fulton. “And I’m still standing,” she added, provoking several cheers of “Amen” from audience members.In addition to tackling gun violence, Fulton said she plans on combating growing crime in the district. She’s also concerned with issues pertaining to housing access, mental illness and the elderly.“I’m bringing fresh new energy to problems that we’ve seen for a long time,” she said.Martin’s death sparked national outrage and was the catalyst for the Black Lives Matter movement, fueling the ongoing national conversation on systemic racism.His killer, George Zimmerman, was acquitted on the grounds of Florida’s controversial Stand Your Ground law.News of Zimmerman’s acquittal outraged many and led to protests across the United States.Milton Felton sat in the crowd Monday, wearing an oversized red button barring Fulton’s name pinned to his chest. He said her ties to the community and her work following her son’s death make her a worthy candidate. The 65-year-old property inspector added that he’s in favor of an outsider entering the realm of local politics.“Fresh air is always a good change of wind,” said Milton.Lesley McSpadden, the mother of Michael Brown, a Black 18-year-old who was fatally shot by a White police officer in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014, was defeated in April after running for a seat on her local city council. Brown’s death, like Trayvon Martin’s, caused large-scale civil unrest and added to the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement.Lucy McBath, a Democrat and an African American whose 17-year-old son was fatally shot in 2012 by a White man during an argument over loud music outside a Florida convenience store, last year won a suburban Atlanta congressional seat that was previously held by a Republican.She became a gun control activist after her son was killed, and she campaigned on that issue.last_img read more

Two superEarthsized planets discovered orbiting a nearby star

The newly detected planets are orbiting a nearby sun-sized star known as HD 3167, located some 150 light years away. The results are presented in a paper published July 18 on the arXiv pre-print server. Explore further K2 light curve of HD 3167. Top: the full K2 light curve.

New system discovered with five planets More information: Two Small Planets Transiting HD 3167, arXiv:1607.05248 [astro-ph.EP] arxiv.org/abs/1607.05248AbstractWe report the discovery of two super-Earth-sized planets transiting the bright (V = 8.94, K = 7.07) nearby late G-dwarf HD 3167, using data collected by the K2 mission. The inner planet, HD 3167 b, has a radius of 1.6 R_e and an ultra-short orbital period of only 0.96 days. The outer planet, HD 3167 c, has a radius of 2.9 R_e and orbits its host star every 29.85 days. At a distance of just 45.8 +/- 2.2 pc, HD 3167 is one of the closest and brightest stars hosting multiple transiting planets, making HD 3167 b and c well suited for follow-up observations. The star is chromospherically inactive and slowly rotating, ideal for radial velocity observations to measure the planets’ masses. The outer planet is large enough that it likely has a thick gaseous envelope which could be studied via transmission spectroscopy. Planets transiting bright, nearby stars like HD 3167 are valuable objects to study leading up to the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope. Although Kepler has lost two of its four reaction wheels and therefore cannot be precisely pointed toward stars, it is still capable of detecting new exoworlds. The spacecraft is now in its extended mission, known as K2, during which it has already found over 100 new planets. The HD 3167 system is just the latest addition to the vast collection of extrasolar worlds detected by K2.HD 3167 was observed by Kepler between January 3 and March 23, 2016 during Campaign 8 of its K2 mission. This observation campaign allowed a team of astronomers, led by Andrew Vanderburg of the Harvard–Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA), to detect two transit signals that could be planets circling around this nearby star.”We identified two planet candidates transiting HD 3167 after processing pixel-level data to produce a light curve, removing systematic effects due to Kepler’s unstable pointing, and searching for planets using a Box Least Squares periodogram search,” the researchers wrote in the paper.To confirm the planetary status of these candidates, the team conducted follow-up observations employing the Tillinghast Reflector Echelle Spectrograph (TRES) on the 1.5 m telescope at the Fred L. Whipple Observatory on Mt. Hopkins, Arizona and the Robo-AO adaptive optics system installed at the 2.1 m telescope at the Kitt Peak National Observatory, also in Arizona. They also used statistical techniques to validate the planetary nature of the transiting signals.The confirmed exoplanets received designation HD 3167 b and HD 3167 c. With a radius of about 1.6 Earth radii, HD 3167 b is the inner planet, orbiting the host star in just slightly less than one day. The outer planet is nearly three times bigger in size than Earth and has an orbital period of approximately 30 days.HD 3167 could be an excellent target for further follow-up observations as it is one of the closest and brightest stars hosting multiple transiting planets. The scientists noted that this system is highly suitable for precise radial velocity observations to measure the planets’ masses.”If HD 3167 b is rocky with a mass of about four Earth masses, it should induce radial velocity variations with a semiamplitude of about 3 ms−1. Depending on its composition, HD 3167 c could induce radial velocity variations with a semiamplitude of anywhere between 1 ms−1 and 3 ms−1. These signals should be readily detectable with modern spectrographs,” the paper reads.The team also emphasized that the outer planet is one of the best currently known small planets for atmospheric characterization with transit transmission spectroscopy. However, they also noted that the short period of HD 3167 b makes it likely that spectroscopic observations of HD 3167 c’s atmosphere might overlap with a transit of the inner planet.”This could be an efficient way to rule out a hydrogen-dominated atmosphere for HD 3167 b. Observers should be cautious, however, to ensure that a transit of HD 3167 b not interfere with out-of-transit observations necessary for calibration,” the researchers concluded.last_img read more

assigned to the agency’s Uniform Patrol Bureau Supervisors have given them marks ranging from competent to commendable in annual reviews"Cpl Drees is extremely patient and understanding with people" Drees’ review from last year said "He allows them to ‘vent’ and asks how he can help them Cpl Drees can literally talk to anyone about anything and bring comfort to them"Ruit’s latest review in 2017 said he maintained self-control in stressful situations He uses force when "reasonable and necessary" takes calculated risks and is open to constructive criticism the review said"He is able to quickly and effectively take control of a situation and restore order in an appropriate amount of time" the review saidDrees had several letters of praise in his file including ones that said he received three lifesaving awards Ruit received a medal of merit in December for aiding in the delivery of a babySome reviews for Drees cite areas where he could make improvements though they appear to be

Afghanistan’s remote Waigal ValleyChosen Company arrived in Afghanistan as a reduced company only two platoons and a headquarters unit The surge in Iraq was siphoning away military resources and had

Taliban insurgents launched an attack that breached the razor-wire perimeter of the Ranch House In a second 14 troops with the Chosen were ambushed on an exposed mountain trail after having been lured

The 40 troops were greatly outnumbered but held their ground at the cost of nine dead and 27 injured The local residents had turned over their village for use by the insurgentsThe troops had been sent to win the hearts and minds of the locals The turning point — when the men realized that goal was not to be reached — occurred Jan 26 2008Kahler and his men approached a guardhouse manned by Afghan security guards When repeated efforts to get the attention of the guards failed Kahler ordered his troops to remain in place and went forward across the wireAs he yelled "we’re Americans” three bullets were fired one fatally striking him Official reports are inconclusive as to whether the death was accidental or intentional Zoraya said "I don’t know how they came to that conclusion when the soldiers felt certain it was murder” he saidThe loss of Kahler was a "body blow” to the troops Zoroya told the West Central Tribune The 29-year-old was loved and respected by his troops Zoroya said
