  • California sound system tries to keep whales and ships apart

    SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — Scientists have installed an underwater sound system they hope will reduce collisions between whales and ships in the Santa Barbara Channel off Southern CaliforniaThe Los Angeles Times reports Friday that a listening station on the channel floor is able to capture whale calls as far as 30 miles (48 kilometres) away. That device is connected by cable to a buoy floating above that transmits data by satellite to scientists on shore.From there, captains can be alerted to slow their ships down.It’s the latest attempt to prevent ships from running into whales in the channel, where cargo vessels in and out of the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach cross feeding grounds of endangered blue, fin and humpback whales.The system is being tested and will fully launch in early 2020.___Information from: Los Angeles Times, http://www.latimes.com/The Associated Press read more

  • Contribution of volunteers hailed at UN event

    “[Volunteers] help us carry out our work in sometimes difficult and dangerous conditions,” Mr. Annan said in a message at a UN General Assembly event marking the official close of the International Year of Volunteers. “They fight poverty and marginalization. They bring assistance to those in need and help us protect the global environment.””In these troubled times, volunteers are a shining example of the brave and caring face of our humanity,” Mr. Annan said.For her part, the head of the UN Volunteers (UNV) programme told the audience that through volunteer efforts this past year, numerous national governments, the Council of Europe, the Inter-Parliamentary Union and the United Nations have passed resolutions and enacted legislation that will support volunteering at national and international levels in the years ahead.”Now is our chance to assess our best volunteer practices and pull together our studies of national volunteerism, our best arguments for better conditions for volunteers, our proposals for pro-volunteer legislation and our strategic vision for a global volunteer network,” Executive Coordinator Sharon Capeling-Alakija said. “This will position us to be effective in encouraging governments and the UN system to take further steps in support of volunteers as time goes on.”Meanwhile, the Acting President of the General Assembly, Ambassador Dumisani Kumalo of South Africa, called for a renewed commitment to supporting the volunteer movement “because it is people’s desire to help one another which makes for the harmonious and peaceful co-existence which is at the heart of the ideals of the United Nations to which we all aspire.”After the Assembly event, Mr. Annan accepted a gift from Canada of a sculpture designed by Anthony Testa of the Royal Canadian Mint that is dedicated to the spirit of volunteerism. read more

  • UN cultural agency promotes power of youth to preserve cultural heritage

    The future of our remaining heritage will depend largely on the decisions and actions of the present generation of young people who will soon become the leaders and decision-makers of tomorrow,?h the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) said in a note about the week-long international youth forum. About 80 men and women – aged between 18 and 30 – gathered at the official opening of the forum, organized by UNESCO around the theme of “Creativity and Heritage along the Silk Road.” Today?fs event was held at the Yuelu Academy, which is now part of Hunan University but is believed to have been founded in 976. UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova was among the speakers who opened the forum, which seeks to raise awareness among youth about the need to preserve heritage and cultural locations, as well as to help to shape a scholarship and training programme aimed at young people. According to UNESCO, each participant is from a country along the Silk Road, which once stretched from China through India to the Middle East and Europe. In addition to carrying merchandise and commodities, the constant movement and mixing of populations along the Silk Route ?galso brought about the transmission of knowledge, ideas, cultures and beliefs, which had a profound impact on the history and civilizations of the Eurasian peoples,?h the Paris-based UN agency said. The youth forum will travel later this week to Quanzhou, located at the south-east coast of China. A cultural heritage site, Quanzhou is also known for linking the ?gmaritime Silk Road?h which fanned out to nearly 100 countries and regions, according to UNESCO. read more

  • Lavender Prahalis combo leads Bucks to blistering start

    Following the Preseason Women’s National Invitational Tournament Championship last weekend, Ohio State’s women’s basketball team is looking ahead to another full slate of games in the upcoming week. The Buckeyes play at home tonight against UNC Greensboro before playing in the Buckeye Classic this weekend at St. John Arena. As part of a two-game tournament, OSU will play IUPUI followed by either California or Southern. The Buckeyes have dominated their opponents early in the season, winning by an average of nearly 24 points a game. UNC Greensboro, IUPUI, California and Southern have combined for a rather pedestrian 9-7 record so far this year.If any of them expect to compete with the Buckeyes, they will have to figure out a way to slow down OSU’s offense — a daunting task considering the Buckeyes have been scoring at will early in the season.Through five games, they average 91 points a game, up from 69 per contest last season, and their 367 total points in the WNIT were the most in tournament history.Junior center Jantel Lavender, who was named WNIT co-MVP with teammate Samantha Prahalis, said that it is her team’s depth that is responsible for the scoring outburst.“[Our team] has a ton of weapons,” Lavender said. “The freshmen bring a lot of different things to the table both defensively and offensively. I love playing with a team that is so deep.”It was depth that was on display in Sunday’s tournament finale against Oklahoma State. Including Lavender’s team-high 26 points, four of the Buckeye starters scored in double figures. Oklahoma State head coach Kurt Budke expects the Buckeyes to make a deep run in the NCAA tournament come season’s end. “They can hit you from many ways,” Budke said. “That is a very good team and they could definitely be in the Final Four.”If Budke is right, OSU would make just its second Final Four appearance in the program’s 43-year history.The Buckeyes take on UNC Greensboro tonight at 7 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center. read more

Footballers can be banned for two years if they test positive for Class A drugs.UK Anti-Doping collected almost 2,000 samples from Premier League players during the 2017-18 season.Six players failed tests for recreational drugs last season but their identities have not been revealed. The Football Association has appealed for people to come forward with information after a England footballer was allegedly caught taking cocaine in a nightclub.The unnamed sportsman, who plays for a premier league side, was reportedly spotted by a teammate snorting the Class A drug in the loo at a pre-Christmas party.A club source told The Sun newspaper that the footballer had emerged looking worse for wear and had been sent home in a taxi by the team manager who thought he was drunk.Professional footballers can be subjected to random drug testing at any time during the season, but it was claimed the player had given clean samples the day before the incident.A FA spokesman said it operated one of the most comprehensive anti-doping programmes in the world that was also aimed at preventing the use of recreational drugs.The spokesman also asked anyone with any information about the case to come forward.”Although incidents of doping in English football are very rare, it remains a priority for The FA to find and sanction anyone found taking performance-enhancing or recreational drugs.”We encourage anyone with information about any anti-doping violation in football to report it to The FA,” the spokesman said. read more

  • Measles vaccination advised before travel to World Cup in Russia PAHOWHO

    The Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) has recommended that all those travelling to the 2018 FIFA World Cup ensure that they are up-to-date with all their vaccinations, including the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine (also known as MMR).The 2018 World Cup will be hosted this year by Russia between June 14 and July 15.According to PAHO/WHO, the increase in international travel and the mass movement of people during events such as the World Cup increases the risk of transmission of diseases. It also increases the likelihood of travelers returning to their countries with diseases such as measles, which is highly contagious and can have grave consequences on the health of unvaccinated populations.“We recommend that people get vaccinated at least 15 days prior to travel,” said Cuauhtémoc Ruiz Matus, Head of the Comprehensive Family Immunization Unit at PAHO. “Those travelling to Russia should make sure that their vaccines are up-to-date, particularly those that protect against measles and rubella.”Last year, the number of new cases of measles in Europe quadrupled, infecting 22,360 people and leading to 36 deaths. In the first three months of 2018, Europe reported more than 18,000 cases of measles. France, Greece, Serbia and Ukraine are the countries with the highest number of cases. Russia reported more than 600 cases.Around one million people from all over the world are expected to travel to the World Cup. Of the 32 countries that will participate in the World Cup, 28 have reported cases of measles this year.Facts from the Health Organization outlined that in 2018, as of the last Measles and Rubella Bulletin issued May 19, 11 countries reported 1,194 confirmed cases of measles in the Region of the Americas: Antigua and Barbuda (1 case), Argentina (3 cases), Brazil (173 cases), Canada (11 cases), Colombia (25 cases), Ecuador (7 cases), Guatemala (1 case), Mexico (4 cases), Peru (2 cases), United States of America (63 cases), and Venezuela (904 cases).This is higher than the four countries that registered a total of 895 cases for all of 2017: Argentina (3 cases), Canada (45 cases), United States of America (120 cases) and Venezuela (727 cases).The region was declared free from endemic rubella in 2015 and measles in 2016.This followed a 22-year effort that included the mass vaccination of 450 million children, adolescents and adults under the age of 40 from all over the continent between 2003 and 2009.However, PAHO notes that imported cases and recent outbreaks in some countries have put these achievements at risk.“Maintaining the elimination of measles, rubella and congenital rubella syndrome in the Americas requires a vaccination coverage rate of at least 95%, as well as swift action to detect imported cases and break the chain of transmission,” affirmed Ruiz Matus.WHO/PAHO has been issuing warnings about the situation since May 2017, calling on countries to maintain high levels of vaccination coverage, strengthen surveillance, and urgently put into place measures to respond to suspected cases.During Vaccination Week in the Americas in April, and within the framework of the 2018 World Cup, PAHO underscored the urgent need to protect against vaccine-preventable diseases.As part of Vaccination Week initiatives, eleven countries announced their intentions to strengthen immunization programs through the vaccination of 6 million people against measles.

  • UN seeks Myanmar report on rapes deaths of Rohingya women

    first_img.A United Nations women’s rights panel called on Myanmar on Tuesday to report within six months on rapes and sexual violence against Rohingya women and girls by its security forces in northern Rakhine state. The U.N. Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) also asked authorities to provide details on women and girls killed in the violence since the army crackdown began in late August.The campaign, which followed attacks on police posts by Rohingya insurgents, has driven more than 600,000 Rohingya to flee to Bangladesh and left their villages burned to the ground.The rare request for an “exceptional report” from a country was only the panel’s fourth since 1982.Pope Francis met leaders of several faiths in majority-Buddhist Myanmar on Tuesday, stressing the importance of “unity in diversity” but making no mention of the minority Muslim Rohingya on his first day of a visit.He later said in a speech that civil conflict and hostilities there had “lasted all too long and created deep divisions”, but again did not refer to the Rohingya.The U.N. watchdog panel, composed of 23 independent experts, set a six-month deadline for the government to submit the report to U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.”The Committee requested information concerning cases of sexual violence, including rape, against Rohingya women and girls by State security forces; and to provide details on the number of women and girls who have been killed or have died due to other non-natural causes during the latest outbreak of violence,” it said in a statement.The experts requested information on “investigations, arrests, prosecutions, convictions and sentences or disciplinary measures imposed on perpetrators, including members of the armed forces, found guilty of such crimes.”Specifically, they sought information on the battalions that have undertaken the “clearance operations” in northern Rakhine state since August 25 “and under whose command”.They asked whether instructions have been given or are being issued to all branches of state security forces that torture, sexual violence and expulsions are banned “and that those responsible will be prosecuted and punished”.The panel said it wanted to know how many Rohingya women and girls are being detained by security forces.Reuters reported on Monday that the U.N. Human Rights Council is expected to hold a special session in Geneva on December 5 on killings, rapes and other crimes committed against Rohingya in Myanmar.The watchdog panel said it had also “requested information on investigations, arrests, prosecutions, convictions and sentences or disciplinary measures imposed on perpetrators, including members of the armed forces, found guilty of such crimes”.last_img read more

  • The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

    first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo “Some guys would go in the tank and that’s what I liked about it the most. He really came back and looked really good.”His day went on to include some pass breakups, including one on a ball that was intended for Floyd.The 23-year-old Williams no doubt looks the part of a top-flight cornerback. At 6 feet and 200 pounds he has good size, and the 4.37 40-yard dash he ran at the scouting combine shows he has plenty of speed.Of course, he is still a rookie, which means there will be bumps along the way as he learns the speed of not only the NFL game, but NFL players.“They know what they’re doing,” he said of the players he is lining up against. “They’re smarter, they’re older, so they understand the game more so they are more faster.”The sooner Williams can get up to speed, the better off the Cardinals will be. The cornerback spot opposite star Patrick Peterson is arguably the team’s biggest question mark heading into camp, and while few teams can boast a pair of top-tier cornebacks, most probably have a bit more in the way of sure things than the Cardinals.Might Williams actually earn the job?Arians praised the rookie’s work ethic, noting he is a hard worker and “was in Patricks’ hip pocket all summer” doing what he could to learn from one of the game’s best. GLENDALE, Ariz. — It was a widely accepted assumption that though the Arizona Cardinals chose Brandon Williams in the third round with the 92nd overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Texas A&M product was a bit of a project who would need some time before he was ready to make a significant contribution.Yet there he was on the first day of training camp running with the first team defense and matching up with the likes of Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, John Brown and J.J. Nelson. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Nothing like being thrown right into the fire, right?For Williams, who played just one season at cornerback in college, he wouldn’t have it any other way.“So I get the feel of the game and understand what I’m doing at a faster tempo,” he said.As for Arians, well, there’s really no other option.“He’s on the first team defense so he’s going to see the first team offense all year,” he said. “No time to waste.”In fairness, while Williams was impressive during OTAs and mini-camp, he probably would not be running with the first defense if fellow cornerback Justin Bethel was not out while recovering from offseason foot surgery.However, the why he is a starter right now is not nearly as important as the what he does with the role, and though it’s about as early in training camp as you can get, so far, so good.“Brandon had a hell of a day,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said of the rookie’s effort. “He got beat by [John Brown] but he was there, he just turned a little bit the wrong way and got off balance. But he broke up some good balls and the nice thing about it is after the touchdown he came back and competed his ass off.

(Photo by Adam Green/Arizona Sports) Friday, as Williams was talking to the media, Peterson dropped by to share some thoughts on his teammate.“The kid had a great practice today, so happy for him, I’m proud of him,” Peterson said. “He’s taking great strides. That kid’s got it. He’s got it.”That’s high praise from a player who is arguably the NFL’s best cornerback, though when told that must mean he’s arrived, Williams smiled and laughed.“Nah, nah,” he said. – / 22center_img Top Stories “He’s a more mature rookie than most,” he added.But he is still a rookie, and as Williams said, if day one of camp taught him anything it is that he has a long way to go. Getting to work with and against a group of receivers like the Cardinals have may lead to giving up more completions than he would like, but at the same time, Williams sees what could be perceived as a disadvantage as something that instead can be beneficial.“I just see opportunity, opportunity to get better,” he said. “All those guys bring different styles to the table. Larry is a big guy, Mike is too. Smoke and J.J. are more faster guys, so I get to work on different parts of my game with them.”Brown, who as Arians said beat Williams for a long touchdown, was complimentary of the cornerback.“He doesn’t look like a rookie at all,” he said. “He’s making plays — you know, he’s doing what he’s doing. He had a lot of pass breakups [Friday], so he looked real good.”Good day or not, Williams said his confidence always stays at an even level. If anything, he said making big plays only motivates him to pay even more attention to detail, because his understanding of what he was supposed to do is what allows him to succeed.
