Coal miners urge Congress extension of black lung funding

first_imgLOUISVILLE, Ky. — Former Appalachian coal miners and supporters are in Washington this week to urge lawmakers to extend a tax that benefits miners sick with black lung disease.The excise tax paid by coal companies funds the Black Lung Disability Trust Fund, but the tax is set to decrease by half at the end of the year.Calling it a matter of life and death, supporters say the fund could be in jeopardy without the extension. Kenny Fleming had to retire early from coal mining in eastern Kentucky when he got sick. He called the fund a “lifesaver.”Rates of black lung, an incurable disease, have been on the rise in Appalachia in recent years.House Republicans inserted a one-year extension for the tax into a tax bill released this week.The Associated Presslast_img

Medical trend with female genital mutilation disturbs UN agency

5 February 2007Calling for stepped-up efforts against the traditional yet gruesome practice of female genital mutilation (FGM), the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) sounded the alarm today against a new trend – parents using health-care workers to perform cutting in the belief that any medical problems can be minimized. Calling for stepped-up efforts against the traditional yet gruesome practice of female genital mutilation (FGM), the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) sounded the alarm today against a new trend – parents using health-care workers to perform cutting in the belief that any medical problems can be minimized.In an appeal for the International Day Against FGM, which is being observed tomorrow, UNFPA Executive Director Thoraya Ahmed Obaid voiced concern about what she dubbed the “medicalization” of the practice.Some 3 million girls worldwide face the threat of undergoing FGM each year, and an estimated 120 to 140 million women have already been subject to the practice, which leaves lasting physical and psychological scars and increases the risks of problems during childbirth.A study released by the UN last June found that pregnant mothers are far more likely to experience serious complications, such as the need to have caesarean section to dangerously heavy bleeding after the birth. The death rates among babies at birth and immediately after is also much higher – in some cases by as much as 55 per cent.Ms. Obaid said increasing awareness about the physical risks posed by FGM has led more and more parents to turn to health-care professionals to carry out the cutting in clinical settings in the belief that it will be safer for the girl. Many health-care workers now come under pressure from families to agree to perform the surgery.Ms. Obaid warned that younger and younger girls are being subjected to the practice by parents to reduce complaints or the possibility that they will refuse to participate.To challenge proponents of FGM, Ms. Obaid said the Fund has learned that “laws need to be enforced, people need to be educated, and communities must be engaged… Contrary to popular belief, FGM or cutting is not required by any religion. In fact, many religious leaders and scholars and faith-based organizations from around the world have called for the practice to be banned.”UNFPA is backing initiatives in several countries, including Uganda and Kenya, which offer alternative rites of passage to usher girls into adulthood without genital mutilation. In Burkina Faso, Senegal, Ethiopia and Egypt, the Fund works with religious and local community leaders, who serve as promoters of change. It also supports human rights activists to enforce existing laws banning the practice and to introduce similar laws into other countries. read more

Are gas prices too high BMO report suggests Canadian drivers not reaping

TORONTO — A report by the Bank of Montreal suggests Canadian drivers aren’t reaping the full benefit of lower oil prices when it comes to prices at the pump.BMO senior economist Benjamin Reitzes pointed to a chart that showed when the Brent crude oil price was last at today’s levels in 2008, the average gasoline price was less than 80 cents per litre.However, the average regular gasoline price today remains around $1 per litre.How Wal-Mart stands to win big from oil below $35 a barrelNever mind $35 a barrel, Canada’s oil is selling for closer to $20 todayThe Brent crude oil price is a major trading classification of sweet light crude oil.“With last week’s plunge in oil fresh in my mind as I headed into the weekend, I couldn’t help but notice how gasoline prices had ticked higher from the previous week,” Reitzes said.“With Brent crude falling below $55, a level last seen in 2008, gasoline around $1 per litre seemed odd.”The average gasoline price in the U.S. has been around the US$2 per gallon level in recent days and broken below the key psychological barrier in some states. read more

UNESCO meeting lays groundwork for reviving protecting Iraqs cultural heritage

“This is a turning point for the Iraqi people and for the world’s understanding of the role of heritage for societies in conflict situations,” said the Director-General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Irina Bokova. Speaking at the end of a two-day meeting of the International Coordination Conference on the Safeguarding of Cultural Heritage in Liberated Areas of Iraq, Ms. Bokova added: “UNESCO is already mobilizing on the ground to support Iraq in protecting heritage and objects most at risk, and to fence off and guard sites.” The meeting also prepared the groundwork for emergency, medium and long term action plans to preserve the country’s millennial archaeological sites, museums, religious heritage, and historic cities. It also agreed to appoint a joint UNESCO-Iraqi Steering Committee to coordinate and advocate the many national and international initiatives to rehabilitate the cultural heritage of Iraq. However, according to UNESCO the damage already done has been much fear than what was anticipated and the rehabilitation process is likely to require decades of work. Noting the importance of action to safeguard Iraq’s heritage, the country’s Minister of Culture Fryad Rawandouzi highlighted: “As we reclaim our country […] We need help from UNESCO, the UN and others to rehabilitate museums, cities and sites […] We need a plan with a timeline, as well as technical and financial support.” At the same time, there are fears that antiquities taken away from heritage sites may have been sold on the Internet and the black market and the money used finance activities of the terrorist group Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL/Da’esh). “We must stop the trade in Iraqi antiquities, adhere to Security Council Resolution 2199, and dry up [ISIL]’s money flow,” underscored Mohammad Iqbal Omar, the Iraqi Minister of Education. Adopted in 2015, UN Security Council resolution 2199, among other provisions, banned all trade in looted antiquities from Iraq and Syria. It also encouraged steps to ensure such items are returned to their homelands, and called on UNESCO, Interpol, and other international organizations to assist in such efforts. “Da’esh tried, but will never erase our culture, identity, diversity, history and the pillars of civilization. I call on the world to help us,” said added the Minister of Education. read more

Backed by UN agency countries set to take on deadly livestockkilling disease

Controlling and eventually eradicating the Peste des petits ruminants (PPR) disease – which has nearly 90 per cent fatality rate among the animals it infects – will also strengthen food security and nutrition, improve resilience of pastoralists, as well as contribute to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, said the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).“Small ruminants are the primary livestock resource of about 300 million poor rural families in developing and emerging countries … Eradicating PPR is fundamental for building a safer and more sustainable world,” highlighted the agency’s Director-General, José Graziano da Silva.Organized jointly by the FAO and the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), and hosted by the European Commission in Brussels, the conference also called on the international development community to contribute to the PPR Global Eradication Programme to bridge its $340 million funding gap.The financial resources to eradicate PPR are not an expense, but an important investment that will result in future economic and social gains – FAO Director-General Graziano da Silva“The financial resources to eradicate PPR are not an expense, but an important investment that will result in future economic and social gains,” added Mr. Graziano da Silva.In spite of the very high fatality rate, PPR is easily preventable with inexpensive vaccines that can be administered at low cost.Since its initial identification in Côte d’Ivoire in 1942, PPR – also known as the ‘goat plague’ – has spread to over 70 countries in Africa, Middle East, and Asia and has reached new areas in recent years.According to the OIE, PPR is caused by the morbillivirus in the family of paramyxoviruses, that is related to rinderpest, measles and canine distemper. The virus is not known to affect humans.In December 2016 the first reported outbreak in sheep and goats with spill-over of the disease to a wild antelope species was observed in Mongolia, and later in June 2018, it reached the European Union, with a first-ever case reported in Bulgaria.African Swine Flu outbreaks ‘almost certain’ in Asian countriesMeanwhile, the outbreak of the African Swine Flu (ASF) in China, first detected last month by authorities there, is reported to be accelerating and will almost certainly emerge in other countries in Asia, an FAO regional emergency meeting heard on Friday.In response, China and FAO have been working together and have helped veterinary authorities and others respond quickly and isolate areas where ASF detections have occurred and to date, nearly 40,000 infected animals have been culled in efforts to limit the spread.Cross-border, regional collaboration is vital in responding to this very real threat to Asia’s swine sector – FAO Assistant Director-General Kadiresan“The Chinese authorities have taken this outbreak very seriously and have been very proactive in sharing information and their lessons learned with FAO and neighbouring countries about the spread of the virus and their actions so far,” said Wantanee Kalpravidh, FAO’s Asia Regional Manager of its Emergency Centre for Transboundary Animal Diseases.The emergency meeting, convened by FAO in Bangkok, saw veterinary authorities and other key stakeholders from 12 countries, ASF experts, and OIE representatives form a specialized regional network that has pledged to respond aggressively and collaboratively when new outbreaks occur anywhere in the region.“This cross-border, regional collaboration is vital in responding to this very real threat to Asia’s swine sector, because this isn’t something that Ministries or Departments of Agriculture can handle on their own,” said Kundhavi Kadiresan, FAO Assistant Director-General and Regional Representative for Asia and the Pacific.“This virus is a threat to livelihoods, to economies, to an entire industry and its associated value chains. So everyone needs to pay attention to this and step up, in a coordinated way, to take on this challenge. FAO will continue to help with that.” read more

Bob Hanning confirms Fuchse Berlin decline Veszprems offer for Petar Nenadic

German Berliner Zeitung bring the story about the intention of Hungarian Telekom Veszprem to sign Serbian playmaker Petar Nenadic from Fuchse Berlin! According to this source, Hungarians want 31-years old shooter immediately, as they need to fill the gap after a surprising decision of Icelandic Aron Palmarsson to refuse to join the team’s preparation in the last year of his contract.Manager of Füchse Berlin, Bob Hanning, said it to Berliner Zeitung:Yes, it’s true. Before the season there was a request, which we however declined. If someone still has a contract, they are not for sale. I did not want to make the problems of others mine. The Hungarians suddenly needed a playmaker because they lost Aron Palmarsson. We will talk about the topic of whether we want to continue the “Nenadic concept” with the coach in November. There will be no decision until December,” Bob Hanning stated and continued:It would be a pity if he leaves, but if Petar wants to go, he will go. It has been this way for years. Steffen Fäth, unfortunately, decided at an early stage to leave us to go to the Rhein-Neckar Löwen, I’m not sure if he would do that again at this moment. I am quite relaxed with the situation, nor are we in the decision-making phase.Negotiations between Telekom Veszprem and FC Barcelona Lassa about “buying-out” last year of Aron Palmarsson contract, are still active. The Icelandic star will join Spanish team next summer, but still, they want to see him ready and fit, without season’s break which can decrease his playing potential.

Heres why everyone should stop calling it St Pattys Day

first_imgPaddy is derived from the Irish, Pádraig, hence those mysterious, emerald double-Ds.Patty is the diminutive of Patricia, or a burger, and just not something you call a fella. SteveNakatani/FlickrHAVE YOU BEEN to America recently? Or, you know, on Twitter at all?If so, you may have heard people refer to our upcoming national celebration as “Patty’s Day”. Or even “St Patty’s Day”.Why is this?Well, some of the resistance is down to the fact that many Irish-Americans consider ‘Paddy’ a derogatory term. Like this person for instance:(Southie is an Irish area of Boston.)So they go for Patty instead – oblivious to the fact that we already have enough problems with minced meat in this country.Luckily, Marcus Campbell has been running a one-man campaign to set things right for the last three years now. At PaddyNotPatty.com, he offers this advice:The explanation? According to Marcus: He also runs an indefatigable Twitter feed, retweeting and shaming those who choose the wrong path:Obviously, we stand with all right-thinking people in fully supporting Marcus’ quest.Sadly, Marcus didn’t respond to our request for an interview – perhaps because he was too busy fighting the good fight.So we’ll just leave you with this.

007 second power outage drops worldwide NAND supplies by 75

first_img0.07 seconds. That split second of time is so minuscule that the human brain scarcely could register it, yet the power going out at a Toshiba manufacturing plant might be all that it takes to sink the world’s flash memory supply by 20% for the next year… and send the price of your next smartphone or tablet skyrocketing.The power outage happened at a Toshiba factory in Japan specializing in the production of NAND flash memory, which is the sort of chip that is used in Apple‘s iPhone and iPad, as well as most other smartphones, digicams, PMPs and tablets.NAND flash chips are fabricated on silicon wafers about the size of dinner plates and can take between eight to twelve weeks to process. If the power goes out at any point in that time frame, the entire batch can be destroyed, and even though the power outage in question was only 0.07 seconds, it still was the equivalent of yanking the cord out of the wall: there’s no way to plug it back in quick enough that the system won’t reboot.It’s a big deal. Toshiba is responsible for 35.4% of the world’s NAND flash memory, second only to Samsung. With twenty percent of their next year’s NAND inventory now going in the trash, it appears that worldwide NAND availability next year will sink by 7.5%… and with the increasing popularity of NAND-based gadgets like the iPad and the MacBook Air, it couldn’t have come at a worse time.Read more at Wall Street Journallast_img read more

X47B becomes first UAV to land on aircraft carrier

first_imgThe US Navy’s current autonomous drone baby, the X-47B, has made its first successful landing on an aircraft carrier, which happens to be the first time in autonomous drone overlord history that such an event has taken place.Back in May, the X-47B happened to complete the first successful flight of an unmanned, autonomous drone from an aircraft carrier. So, the X-47B can now take off from and land on aircraft carriers all on its own, likely marking the this recent landing test as the beginning of the enslavement of the human race by its glorious robot overlords. The drone is the first UAV that can take off, land, and refuel all on its own. Designing an aerial robot overlord cost contractor Northrop Grumman $813 million since it began work back in 2007 — perhaps less expensive than you might’ve thought a plane that could fly itself would be.Though the military does have a host of spy and attack planes situated in bases across the world, being able to launch a covert drone from a mobile carrier greatly expands the military’s remote strike ability.Thankfully, the autonomous drone does not have weapons capability as of yet — so we can all rest easy that Judgment Day isn’t exactly right around the corner. The next step for the X-47B is not installing those weapon capabilities, but to perform further refueling tests — weapons don’t mean much if the drone doesn’t have enough fuel to get them anywhere, after all. However, even though some more refueling tests are in the X-47B’s future, the US Navy feels that the UAV is ready for unmanned operations.last_img read more

By Odins Beard Viking Metal Band Amon Amarth Releases a Video Game

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Swedish Melodic Death Metal band Amon Amarth is known around the world for its songs about Norse Mythology. Not content with merely pillaging arenas and concert halls, the famed Viking Metal giants are setting sail for the land of video games.Titled after the band, Amon Amarth will let users play as the Norse deity, Thor. With his trusted hammer, Mjolnir, the god of thunder will face off against other Norse beings like Surtur, Hel, Fenrir, and Nidhogg. In addition to his hammer, Thor can use his ability to control lighting to bring further pain upon his enemies. You can see what the game has in store in the trailer below.The game features four worlds and a total of 12 different levels. Each of the four worlds is ruled by a different deity or monster that must be slain. Since this is an Amon Amarth game, it contains 13 of the band’s songs. Each song has been redone in chiptune form.AdChoices广告Amon Amarth is being developed by Ride & Crash Games, who is based out of Stockholm, Sweden. According to the press release (via MetalSucks), founder Robert Chirico Willstedt met Amon Amarth in 2015. After bonding with the band “over epic amounts of beer and a common love of video games,” they began to discuss a game based on Amon Amarth. Robert gathered a team of developers and designers to bring the digital Viking epic to life. The band continually met with the developers to ensure the game would be “an authentic Amon Amarth product.”Despite almost exclusively writing songs based on Norse myths, Amon Amarth’s moniker is actually the Sindarin name of Mount Doom from The Lord of the Rings. To date, the Viking Metal band has released ten albums. Their latest, Jomsviking, came out in the Spring of 2016.Amon Amarth is available now on iOS and Android devices for $8.99.

Tourists may soon be fined for doing this one thing in Venice

first_imgTourists may soon be fined for doing this one thing in Venice VENICE — Come sit, and take a load off. Just not in Venice, says the city’s mayor.In a bizarre attempt to curb overtourism, Mayor Luigi Brugnaro will pitch a new proposal to the city council next month that will ban people from sitting down in undesignated parts of the city.If the vote passes, anyone caught parking their behinds in no-sitting spots could be slapped with a hefty fine that ranges from €50 and €500.That’s one expensive rest stop!Unbelievably, sitting down is already banned in several high-traffic areas of Venice, including St. Mark’s Square and on the steps of Rialto Bridge. But the new rule would extend the ban city-wide to anywhere there isn’t already a chair or a bench, reports the Mirror.If passed, the sitting ban will follow several other initiatives Venice has taken to crack down on tourist behaviour. These include preventing new takeaway outlets from opening for the next three years and banning large cruise ships from docking by 2021. The council’s #EnjoyRespectVenezia campaign, launched last year, also prohibits public picnics, jumping into canals, littering, feeding pigeons and riding bicycles.More news:  Honolulu authorities investigate arsons at 3 Waikiki hotels; no injuries reportedAlso big no-no’s in Venice? Camping, placing padlocks on bridges and wearing inappropriate clothing.Speaking to The Independent, Paola Mar, Venice’s councillor for tourism, said: “The message we have to get through is that we’re not joking.”No kidding, but you have to admit it all sounds pretty funny.

Burundi election results to be announced Friday

The head of Burundi’s electoral commission says vote counting is underway and results are expected Thursday for a controversial election in which incumbent President Pierre Nkurunziza’s bid for a third term in power has sparked widespread unrest.(AP Photo/Jerome Delay) How Arizona is preparing the leader of the next generation Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Agathon Rwasa, the main opposition figure, said his attempts to campaign had been frustrated by the government, and the U.S. and Britain said the election was not credible due to the intimidation of Nkurunziza’s opponents.The Coalition of Independence of Hope, which supports Rwasa, will reject the outcome, said Charles Nditije, who is part of the coalition.More than 100 people have died in protests since April when the ruling party announced Nkurunziza would seek a third term. The demonstrations triggered an attempted coup in May that was quickly put down by forces loyal to Nkurunziza. Earlier this month, the government said it crushed a rebellion in northern Burundi, killing 31 insurgents and arresting 171 others.Many fear that Nkurunziza’s efforts to stay in power to could bring renewed conflict in Burundi, which gained independence from Belgium in 1962. Since then, it has had four coups and a civil war that killed 250,000 people.“The attitude of the government is pushing people to create a rebellion,” said Francis Nyamoya, secretary general of opposition party Movement For Solidarity and Democracy.“If it is necessary, force will be used to push out Nkurunziza,” he said, adding that members of his party are being killed.

Melbournes observation wheel almost spinning

first_imgThe Southern Star Observation Wheel at Docklands in Melbourne is reportedly set to reopen this year, four years after the city viewing platform shut down.Originally launched in 2008, the wheel spun for only 40 days before being shut down in January 2009 after cracks were found in its frame.Since, the ride has been taken apart and rebuilt and although the wheel’s owner, ING, has been reluctant to give an estimated finish date due to persistent setbacks, the company’s representative Ken Davis said the wheel could be spinning again in the “second half of 2013”, The Sydney Morning Herald reported.He explained the ride’s reopening has been delayed by Melbourne’s weather, which will put construction on hold during wind and rain. “This makes it extremely difficult to make any announcements regarding an opening timeline,” he said. Meanwhile, local retailer, Groove Train Cafe owner John Dimos said news of its reopening was a “small light at the end of the tunnel”.Mr Dimos said delays have caused “grief and pain” among local operators, even watching several business close around him.“I’ll be damned if I’m going to shut my doors,” he said.“I’m going to keep them open and absolutely make sure that we thrive when this thing comes back.” The wheel that spun for 40 days is set to go round again.
