first_imgMer du Nord : une fuite de kérosène entraînée par une collision Pays-Bas – Un tanker grec transportant du kérosène est entré en collision avec un porte-conteneurs chypriote ce mardi vers 7H00, au large des Pays-Bas. Le choc a engendré une fuite d’hydrocarbures.C’est à une trentaine de kilomètres de la côte, près de Scheveningen, que cet accident s’est produit. Vingt-cinq personnes se trouvaient à bord du tanker et douze sur le porte-conteneurs, qui transportait principalement des box vides. À lire aussiLa Méditerranée est officiellement la mer la plus polluée par le plastiqueSi d’après un porte-parole des gardes-côtes néerlandais, personne n’a été blessé, “le tanker transportait du kérosène et il y a un trou au niveau de la ligne de flottaison qui provoque une fuite”. D’après l’agence ANP, il s’agirait d’un trou de cinq mètres sur six.Les secours seraient toutefois intervenus rapidement et à temps pour endiguer la fuite d’hydrocarbures. “Ils ont pompé le carburant qui s’échappait d’une cuve percée vers une autre cuve du bateau” ont assuré les gardes-côtes. Et d’ajouter que si du brut flotte encore à la surface de la mer, le kérosène devrait s’évaporer très vite.

first_imgClark County’s unemployment rate climbed to 5 percent in December, an increase over November’s 4.6 percent but matching the 5 percent reported for December 2017, according to Washington Employment Security Department data released Wednesday.Despite the rise in the unemployment rate, the county saw an unadjusted net increase of 200 jobs during December. When asked about the discrepancy, regional economist Scott Bailey stressed that the unemployment rate is an estimate.“There’s a big plus-or-minus around that unemployment rate,” he said. “It has to move at least half a (percentage) point before we can say it was significantly different.”Wholesale trade, information services, professional services, health care, food services and K-12 public education each gained approximately 100 jobs, but those gains were partially offset by a loss of 200 jobs in business services, 100 in state government and 100 in local government, resulting in a net gain of 200 jobs for the month, bringing total nonfarm employment to 170,400.When reporting the state-level jobs numbers, the employment security department posts the actual change in jobs and a “seasonally adjusted” figure, which is recalculated to exclude large changes in the workforce that reliably occur at the same point in each year, such as thousands of students seeking summer jobs in June.last_img read more


first_imgThe average advertised salary in the UK increased by 3.9% between December 2017 and December 2018, according to research by job search engine Adzuna.The UK job market report: January 2019 is based on online vacancy data from across 500 sources. It also found that the average advertised salary in the UK is £34,213 as at December 2018, an increase of 1.6% from the £33,682 average salary recorded in November 2018.Those in the teaching profession have reaped the biggest increase in rewards over the last 12 months, with the average advertised salary increasing by 14.4% to reach £30,511. This is followed by a 7.8% average salary increase for legal professionals, equating to an average advertised wage of £43,733. IT positions generate an average annual salary of £51,401, a 5% rise over the last year.At the other end of the scale, the retail sector has seen its average advertised salary in the UK decrease by 5.9% between December 2017 and December 2018, for an annual average salary of £25,385. Maintenance jobs have seen a similar fall, decreasing by 5.1% to reach an average of £28,980.Wales is the only UK region that has seen an overall fall in its average advertised salary in the last year (0.5%). In comparison, South West England has enjoyed a 8.2% hike, with an average wage of £32,552. London still offers the highest average salary throughout the UK, with £41,859; this is an increase of 5.3% since last year.Andrew Hunter, co-founder at Adzuna, said: “With salaries at their highest and vacancies at their lowest for four years, there may be room for cautious optimism at the moment. However, one sector where the picture is not so rosy is retail, where [employees] are feeling the pinch.“We recently published reports that say they are the unhappiest [employees] in the UK and it’s clear to see why: low salaries, declining vacancies and the looming threat of closures make retail a challenging place to be.”last_img read more


first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The National Guard plans to stand up 13 new cyber units across 23 states by the end of fiscal 2019 as part of the ongoing growth of cyber forces throughout DOD, officials announced last week.“Working with the Army and Air Force our cyber squadrons and teams will provide trained and ready soldiers and airmen to support requirements established by the services and U.S. Cyber Command,” Army Gen. Frank Grass, chief of the National Guard Bureau, said in a press release.Seven new Army Guard cyber protection teams will be activated across 18 states. They will join four previously announced Army Guard cyber teams spread across six other states.In partnership with the Air Force, the Air Guard will activate four new cyber operations squadrons in Idaho, Michigan, Texas and Virginia. In addition, a cyber information surveillance reconnaissance (ISR) squadron will stand up in California and a cyber ISR group in Massachusetts.The Guard’s new cyber units will establish a foundation for future cyber forces to be activated.“This is the beginning,” said Air Force Col. Kelly Hughes, chief of the Space and Cyber Warfare Operations Division at the Air National Guard Readiness Center. “This is a massive amount of force structure the Guard has laid into this mission, but this is just the first layer,” Hughes said.The latest rollout of cyber units allows the Guard to fulfill Army and Air Force cyber missions while positioning cyber protection units in each of the 10 Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) response regions, according to the bureau.“The focus is to get that presence in as many states as possible and especially making sure we have all the FEMA regions covered,” Hughes said.Ensuring each FEMA region has coverage ties into the Guard’s mission to respond to large-scale emergencies and disasters at home, said Air Force Col. Timothy Lunderman, director of joint cyber operations at the National Guard Bureau.Cyber teams and squadrons, Lunderman added, are another asset governors can use at the state level should they be needed.last_img read more

For three years, Sofi has been one of a growing number of preachers in the Kashmir Valley to sensitize the local Muslims to eco-consciousness through an appeal to their faith.“Years of violence and state surveillance have depleted our natural resources, along with climate change,” said Sofi. “Ordinary people are now turning to religion,” he said.There are more than 7,500 mosques and seminaries in the Muslim-majority Kashmir Valley, of which more than 6,000 are of the Hanafi Sunni order. Another approximately 200 are shrines of the mystical Sufi sect of Islam.Since 1947, the majority-Muslim region of Kashmir has been caught between India and Pakistan, which emerged as two sovereign states after the wrenching end of colonial rule by Britain. The nuclear-armed neighbors have fought two wars here, which both claim in full but control in part.Religious preacher Sartaj Sofi. RNS photo by Priyadarshini SenAfter years of conflict that has harmed the valley’s natural beauty, the locals here have more faith in religious preachers like Sofi to protect their heritage than they do the government, explained Farooq Ahmed, an imam from Srinagar.“Civilians are distrustful of government programs since they haven’t stopped activities such as deforestation, soil erosion and extinction of biodiversity in Kashmir,” said Ahmed.In particular, locals blame government apathy and corruption for the state of Dal Lake, an urban waterway once hailed as a jewel in the crown of Kashmir, that is now a weed-clogged swamp.Illegal encroachments and sewage disposal in the lake have imperiled the livelihoods of the owners of shikaras, colorful wooden houseboats that lodge tourists, as well as the vegetable sellers who make their living along the lakeshore.Ghulam Rasool Dar, a boatman who has spent more than 70 years around Dal Lake, says the absence of a proper anti-pollution program is due to the unstable political situation in Kashmir.Moreover, in the last two decades or so, security forces have allegedly cleared vast tracts of forestland to prevent militants from taking cover in the forests.One result of the deforestation in recent years has been the unprecedented floods that have killed more than 300 people in 2014, as hundreds of villages, bridges and roads were washed away.The Centre for Science and Environment, a research and advocacy group in Delhi, attributed the floods to “unplanned urbanization, encroachments, climate change and a lack of preparedness.”Shaheena Parveen, a government municipal committee president in Bijbehara, a town outside Srinagar, defended the local government’s efforts to reverse the effects of the conflict. “The government is working tirelessly to boost Kashmir’s economy, tourism and environment. Years of conflict have derailed the state.”Since 2015, the government has dispatched mobile vans in neighborhoods around Srinagar to spread eco-consciousness; shiny billboards and hoardings with verses from the Quran are more commonly seen in villages and towns; and street theater has gained popularity.But imams in the Bijbehara town said people’s crisis of faith has increased since the 2014 floods, and they continually blame the government for never rising above conflict.“People are therefore inclined to disengage with government programs since they are hollow promises. They are looking to faith leaders for solutions,” said imam Farooq Ahmed.“The floods were the flashpoint,” says Pir Masood-ul-Haq, an administrator at the Hazratbal shrine in Srinagar, widely considered the holiest Muslim shrine in Kashmir. “The calamity spurred us to sensitize people at shrines and mosques about conserving our environment.”Masood-ul-Haq has taken to teaching the nearly 50,000 devotees who congregate at the white marble shrine each Friday how a strict ascetic discipline can restore Kashmir’s natural diversity. He makes his case by citing Sheikh Noor-ud-Din Wali, a 14th-century Kashmiri Sufi saint who founded the Rishi movement, promoting harmony with nature in ways that seem to anticipate contemporary responses to climate change.Muslim devotees at the Aishmuqam Shrine, near Anantnag District of Kashmir Valley, India, where a sermon on environmental conservation was held on June 21, 2019. RNS photo by Priyadarshini SenThe Rishis would plant fruit-bearing trees wherever they went and espoused non-violence, based on their view that religion should primarily focus on man’s treatment of his fellow beings.Their eco-consciousness, Masood-ul-Haq said, “comes not from focusing on the afterlife as religious leaders have done, but by cultivating a strong spiritual tradition in this life like the Rishi order.”Inspired by the Rishi’s ethic, Kashmiri religious leaders are mobilizing action to prevent use of plastics, fossil fuels and pesticides.Besides the appeal to ancient philosophies, the imams’ environmental push is relying as well on the urgency felt by young Kashmiris. “There’s a spurt in religiosity among the youth who see mosques and shrines as platforms to reach a wider audience at the grassroots level,” said Fayaz Ahmed Rather, an administrator for the Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Waqf Board, a local religious charitable endowment.“Mosques have been used for socio-political ends in our conflict-ridden society,” said Asif Hussain Wani, a student at an industrial training institute near Srinagar. “But now, we see them as powerful vehicles to spread environmental consciousness.”It is no coincidence that Sufis are leading voices in the green movement here. Fayaz Rather, who also preaches at a mosque in Aishmuqam that is dedicated to a key Rishi figure, believes that the ecological crisis arises from a modern faith in science over a characteristic Sufi asceticism.In the days when “people relied on mythologies and ancient texts over scientific knowledge,” said Rather, care for the environment was a given.That sometimes abstruse connection between faith and the planet, however, has recently trickled down to NGOs and academics, who have begun collaborating with religious leaders.Since last year, the Community of Education, Research and Development, an NGO in Kashmir’s Anantnag district, has convinced more than 20 imams to start the conversation on “environmental spirituality” in cities, towns and villages.“Many anthropogenic activities and policy paralysis have destroyed Kashmir. We want to regain our paradise,” said Aabid Hussain Mir, the organization’s president.Azra Nahid Kamili, a professor of environmental science at the University of Kashmir, says scientists are also working closely with religion scholars and preachers.In 2017, the Central University of Kashmir organized an international conference on conservation of the environment and the role of religion, where theologians and religious leaders were invited from the United States, Bosnia and India.Amid all the emphasis on religion, Sartaj Sofi says that environmental consciousness is a matter primarily of the welfare of Kashmiri society.“It’s important to remember what Sufi saint Sheikh Noor-ud-Din Wali had said in the 14th century. Our food will last as long as forests last.” Share This! By: Priyadarshini Sen AP-NORC Poll: Americans rarely seek guidance from clergy Share This!

first_imgNo coins, no power-ups, and no kills from the beginning of Super Mario Bros. to the end. Could you do it?There’s nothing quite as mesmerizing as a speed run for classic games. Portal, for instance, has been completed in less than nine minutes, while Skyrim has been finished in just over two hours. Reflex gamers who have played the same game over and over record themselves gliding through Super Mario Bros. like it’s nothing. Every movement is a deliberate attempt to get to the flag as quickly as possible. What if you went about it a different way, and instead played a level in an attempt to get the lowest possible score? More importantly, what if you played the whole game that way?The lowest possible score you can get in any given level of Super Mario Bros. is 100 points, which is what happens when you touch the base of the flagpole with zero seconds left on the clock. If you’re familiar with SMB, you know there are warp pipes that allow you to cut through huge sections of the game, but there are a few levels you absolutely must complete. So, in this run, you see the entire game defeated by meticulously avoiding coins, kills, and power-ups, finally ending with Bowser taking the lava bath we all know he’s going to take.Best of luck trying this with Super Mario 3D World.last_img read more


first_imgTeenagers’ natural desire to rebel against authority could be tapped to drive them to replace junk food with healthier choices, a study has found. Food marketing, designed to foster strong positive associations with junk food in kids’ minds and to drive overeating, is one of the biggest obstacles in the public fight against obesity. The study, published in the journal Nature Human Behaviour, found that a simple and brief intervention can provide lasting protection for adolescents against these harmful effects of food marketing. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe method works in part by tapping into teens’ natural desire to rebel against authority, researchers said. The team from the University of Chicago in the US went into classrooms and had one group of students read a fact-based, expose-style article on big food companies. The article framed the corporations as manipulative marketers trying to hook consumers on addictive junk food for financial gain. The stories also described deceptive product labels and advertising practices that target vulnerable populations, including very young children and the poor. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveA separate, control group of students received traditional material from existing health education programs about the benefits of healthy eating. The researchers found that the group that read the exposes chose fewer junk food snacks and selected water over sugary sodas the next day. Teens first read the marketing expose material, and then did an activity called “Make It True,” meant to reinforce the negative portrayal of food marketing. The students received images of food advertisements on iPads with instructions to write or draw on the ads – graffiti style – to transform the ads from false to true. The study found that the effects of the marketing expose intervention endured for the remainder of the school year – a full three months. The effects were particularly impressive among boys, who reduced their daily purchases of unhealthy drinks and snacks in the school cafeteria by 31 per cent in that time period, compared with the control group. Researchers found that reframing how students view food-marketing campaigns can spur adolescents, particularly boys, to make healthier daily dietary choices for an extended period of time. “Food marketing is deliberately designed to create positive emotional associations with junk food, to connect it with feelings of happiness and fun,” Christopher J Bryan, from University of Chicago. Teenage boys, a notoriously difficult group to convince when it comes to giving up junk food, started making healthier food and drink choices in their school cafeteria. “One of the most exciting things is that we got kids to have a more negative immediate gut reaction to junk food and junk food marketing, and a more positive immediate gut reaction to healthy foods,” said Bryan. This relatively simple intervention could be an early sign of a public-health game changer, researchers said.last_img read more


first_imgAkumal, Q.R. — As of Monday morning, the road used to access the beach at Club Akumal Caribe will be ordered permanently closed by the municipality mayor.A judicial order to close the road and reinstall the fence that was torn down with machinery last year was defied by the mayor until a February judgement left Tulum’s mayor with an ultimatum. To restore the property or risk contempt.Romalda Dzul Caamal, mayor of Tulum, has ordered the restoration of the property with assistance from security personnel who will see the vendors removed and the road closed as of 8:00 a.m. March 5.Staff from the General Directorate of Public Safety and Transit of Tulum, in addition to officials of the Directorate of Revenues, will arrive at the property to ensure complete compliance.The order to close the beach access road was given to the director of municipal Public Safety, Commander Gabriel González Ornelas, via a letter signed by mayor Romalda Dzul Caama.Last month, the lawyer representing Club Akumal Caribe warned Romalda Dzul Caamal that she is not in a judicial position and that by refusing to close the road used to access the beach, could put her job in jeopardy.Last year, a judge ruled that the road used to access the beach by the public was on private property belonging to Hotel Club Akumal Caribe, SA de CV and the Ukana I Akumal Center, AC.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)last_img read more

So our expectations are a little higher than most.”Keim said while the temptation is there to get Cooper more playing time in Saturday’s preseason opener against Houston, the reality is there are three more exhibition games to think about.“It’s still early in the preseason and only time will tell, but I’m pretty confident knowing Coop’s character and intangibles and the way he goes about doing his job, I feel pretty confident that he’s going to come around and sometime in the near future, be the same player we drafted.” – / 9 0 Comments   Share   Cooper, the seventh overall selection in the 2013 draft, suffered a fractured left fibula in the third preseason game that scrapped the rest of his rookie season.In playing his way back into shape, Cooper is splitting reps with second-year guard Earl Watford at the left guard spot, but general manager Steve Keim doesn’t seem all that concerned at this point.“When you look at the big picture, you realize Coop had a pretty significant injury,” Keim told Doug and Wolf Monday on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. “There’s no question he’s got to knock off some of the rust. “I really equate it to when you’re in a serious car accident, when you get behind the wheel the next several times, I think there is going to be some concern and a mental hurdle to get over. But the more you drive your car, the more comfortable you’re going to feel.”Arians admitted Saturday that Cooper is rusty after participating in only 15 practices last year. But Keim thinks there is another factor involved.“He’s been going against Calais Campbell every day, and Calais continues to grow and get better and he’s been dominating,” Keim said. “I think when you look at the fact that he’s going against Calais and he’s got to gain a little bit more trust in his leg, it’s going to take a little time. Top Stories Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians didn’t hold his tongue Saturday prior to the team’s annual Fan Fest practice when discussing second-year guard Jonathan Cooper.“I’m a little disappointed in where Coop is at right now, I hoped he would come a little faster to get back into the speed of the game,” he said.“We just need to see it.
