first_imgMarée noire : la fuite ne sera pas arrêtée avant aoûtÉtats-Unis – Après l’échec de l’opération “Top Kill” et des autres manœuvres destinées à arrêter le déversement de pétrole qui sévit depuis plus d’un mois dans le golfe du Mexique, BP ainsi que la Maison Blanche ont annoncé que le pétrole pourrait continuer à couler jusqu’au mois d’août. La prochaine opération de colmatage, nécessitant des forages secondaires, est prévue pour cet été. Il s’agit selon BP de la “meilleure solution”. En attendant, le pétrole continuera à s’écouler et des opérations de contention seront menées pour retenir une partie des 2 à 3 millions de litres de brut s’échappant quotidiennement du puits. L’opération “top kill”, porteuse d’espoir et qui avait pourtant réussi au départ, a échoué le week-end dernier. Elle consistait en l’injection d’une solution faite d’eau, de matières solides et de baryte dans les deux conduits menant à la valve anti-explosion du puits, suivie du scellage du puits avec du ciment.

first_imgCholéra en Haïti : la source de l’épidémie serait un camp de Casques bleusSi l’on en croit le récent rapport de Renaud Piarroux, épidémiologiste français, le choléra aurait pour origine un camp de Casques bleus népalais, déjà au cœur d’une vive polémique.Voila plus d’un mois et demi que l’épidémie de choléra s’est déclarée en Haïti, tuant plus de 2.000 personnes et inquiétant les organisations de santé internationales comme l’OMS. Alors que la plupart des théories expliquaient la maladie par le fait que plusieurs catastrophes climatiques ont touché le pays dernièrement, dégradant les conditions sanitaires, Renaud Piarroux faisait savoir récemment que l’épidémie de choléra avait été importée dans le pays (voir notre article).À lire aussiVirus Ebola : la fuite de trois patients infectés attise les inquiétudes au CongoAujourd’hui, cette hypothèse revient sur le devant de la scène avec un rapport qui indique que le camp des Casques bleus népalais en Haïti serait le foyer infectieux de l’épidémie. Ainsi, Renaud Piarroux explique : “Il n’y a pas d’autre explication possible que ça sur le développement de l’épidémie dans un contexte où il n’y avait pas de choléra dans le pays, et compte tenu de l’intensité, de la vitesse de propagation et de la concentration de vibrion dans le delta de l’Artibonite”, l’Artibonite étant un fleuve près duquel le camp népalais est installé. Et d’ajouter : “L’explication la plus logique, c’est l’introduction massive de matière fécale dans le fleuve de l’Artibonite en une seule fois. Le seul élément manquant, c’est l’établissement formel à partir d’analyses et de prélèvements de la présence du vibrion chez les Népalais”. De son côté, l’armée népalaise a fait savoir par le biais de son porte-parole : “C’est une conclusion hypothétique et nous condamnons fermement de telles allégations sans faits ni preuves solides. Je ne pense pas qu’il y  ait jusqu’à présent de preuve concrète”. De son côté, Le Figaro rappelle que la population avait d’ores et déjà pris à partie le camp de soldats, les accusant d’être à l’origine de l’épidémie.Le 8 décembre 2010 à 15:23 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

first_imgISLAMABAD: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has declared that his government would not offer any amnesty to politicians like ex-president Asif Ali Zardari and premier Nawaz Sharif accused in corruption cases but if they returned the “looted money” under a plea bargain, they could leave the country. Khan also revealed that the incarcerated former prime minister Sharif’s sons tried to secure the release of their father with the help of “two friendly countries.” Also Read – EAM Jaishankar calls on European Parliament President David Sassoli Advertise With Us Khan did not reveal the names of the two countries but said they just conveyed him the message but did not press for Sharif’s release. “They told me that we will not interfere,” said Khan, who was accompanied by the adviser on Finance, Hafeez Sheikh, and Federal Board of Revenue Chairman, Shabbar Zaidi. Sharif, 69, has been serving a seven-year prison term at the Kot Lakhpat Jail in Lahore since December 24, 2018 when an accountability court convicted him in one of the three corruption cases filed in the wake of the apex court’s July 28, 2017 order in the Panama Papers case. Also Read – This is why Denmark, Sweden and Germany are considering a meat tax Advertise With Us Sharif and his family have denied any wrongdoing and allege that the corruption cases against them were politically motivated. In May, the apex court rejected Sharif’s review petition seeking bail on medical grounds and permission to go abroad for medical treatment. Khan said that those convicted for corruption would not be allowed to go away until they gave back the stolen money. Advertise With Us “They need to return the country’s money first then they can go anywhere they want,” he said. “If Nawaz (Sharif) wants to go abroad for his medical treatment then he should return the looted money first and if Asif Ali Zardari has such an issue he should return the money,” Khan told ARYNewsTV on Monday. “The NRO will not be offered,” he said, referring to a deal similar to the National Reconciliation Ordinance issued by former dictator Pervez Musharraf, under which cases against a large number of politicians and political workers were dropped. “Two NROs issued by Musharraf to [PML-N’s ‘supreme leader’] Nawaz Sharif and [PPP Co-Chairman] Asif Ali Zardari destroyed the country. Later, both of them also gave NROs to each other,” Khan said. The prime miniser added, “Money launderers are being kept as VIPs. I have asked the law ministry to shift them to a jail where regular prisoners are kept.” “A plea bargain can be allowed and no foreign country can do anything. They (Sharif and Zardari) will have to pay the money,” he said. Former president Zardari is in the custody of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) for his role in three corruption cases. He has been named in a multi-million dollar money laundering case along with his sister Faryal Talpur. According to the NAB, the duo made transactions of Rs 150 million through alleged fake bank accounts. Khan also spoke about the economy and said that it would improve as the difficult time was over. Khan said his government had spent USD 10 billion on debt servicing on loans taken by the previous governments. “A comprehensive plan is being devised including new legislation to control smuggling and money laundering,” he said.last_img read more


first_imgOnline restaurant discovery guide Zomato’s valuation quadruples in a yearFacebook/ ZomatoWithin a fortnight of announcing its foray into the American and Australian markets, Zomato, the online restaurant search service, announced buying out Turkey’s Mekanist, a prominent restaurant discovery portal.The latest acquisition is Zomato’s seventh in six months and the transaction size was not divulged, though it is said to be an all-cash deal. The move would help Zomato double its restaurant coverage from about 27,500 in Istanbul and Ankara to over 50,000 restaurants across Turkey.”Mekanist has established itself as one of the heavyweights in the online restaurant search and discovery space in Turkey. We’re excited to be joining forces with them as we continue to grow in one of our most important markets. Mekanist is one of the first and most successful tech startups to emerge from the Turkish startup ecosystem,” said Zomato’s founder and chief executive Deepinder Goyal in a statement.A fortnight ago Zomato sealed the purchase of Urbanspoon, a US-based restaurant information and table-booking property, gaining a foothold to key markets of US and Australia.In November 2014, Zomato raised $60 million from existing and new investors, using the means to seal up the Urbanspoon deal. Reports indicate Zomato could source an additional $80 million from existing and new investors.Zomato entered Turkey in November 2013, with its website and apps available in Turkish and English. Mekanist has a database of 1,90,000 listed establishments with over 5 lakh reviews from its 15 lakh signed-up user base.When the acquisition is completed, Zomato will cover over 75,000 restaurants, serving almost 30 lakh customer visits, as all of Mekanist’s traffic and restaurant-related content will move to Zomato. Zomato’s hyperlocal advertising model would be made available to restaurant businesses, to effectively target customers searching for restaurants in and around a certain location.In the last few months, Zomato has established itself as a dominant restaurant search player in New Zealand, Poland, Czech Republic, Italy and Slovakia, with presence in 22 countries, listing over 10 lakh restaurants globally, read FirstPost.Zomato has raised $113 million till date, over multiple rounds of funding and is currently valued at about $660 million.last_img read more


first_imgBy The Associated PressRICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A Virginia student who worked with the nation’s first elected African-American governor is accusing him of sexually harassing her by kissing her without consent.The Washington Post reported Thursday that Sydney Black, 22, says L. Douglas Wilder, 88, offered to take her on trips and pay for law school and suggested she live at his house in 2017.Black reported the conduct to police and Virginia Commonwealth University, where she was working as an office assistant at the school’s L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs. Wilder is a distinguished professor at the school.In this Monday, Jan. 21, 2019, file photo, L. Douglas Wilder speaks during the 34th Annual MLK Holiday Luncheon Celebration at The Lansing Center in downtown Lansing, Mich. A Virginia student who worked with Wilder, the nation’s first elected African-American governor, is accusing him of sexually harassing her by kissing her without consent. (Matthew Dae Smith/Lansing State Journal via AP, File)Citing privacy concerns, VCU declined to answer questions, but the newspaper reports the university notified Black in a January letter that its Title IX office intended to investigate. Wilder didn’t respond to the newspaper’s repeated requests for comment over several weeks.The report comes nearly two months after revelations that Virginia’s current governor and attorney general had worn Blackface in the 1980s. Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, meanwhile, has vehemently denied sexual assault allegations from two women. Wilder called for Gov. Ralph Northam’s resignation after he admitted wearing Blackface, but didn’t comment publicly about allegations against Fairfax.Black, an African-American woman, said she struggled with making a report that could tarnish Wilder’s legacy and attract negative attention.“I had to choose being a woman over being Black,” she said.In February 2017, Black said that Wilder took her to dinner on her 20th birthday, gave her alcohol and invited her back to his Richmond condo, where he kissed her. Wilder told her he could help her get accepted at the Howard University School of Law, where he is a board member, she said. When she asked what he wanted in return, he said, “As long as you stick with me, you should be fine.”They went to his condo, where he poured them both champagne, and as they talked, Black said he put his hand on her leg and then kissed her. She said she “immediately jerked away” asking why he “felt comfortable doing that” and he responded that he “shouldn’t have.”Three months later, Wilder told Black that funding for her position lapsed, Black said. She withdrew from college 2018 and re-enrolled this semester.“I was deceived,” she said. “I thought he was a different sort of person.”Black reported the alleged incident to the university in December and was directed to speak with Richmond Police Detective Eric Livengood, who confirmed he spoke to Black, but didn’t answer questions. A redacted Jan. 3 report says a 20-year-old woman reported that a Feb. 16, 2017, assault in a residence in the same block where Wilder owns a condo.After Black contacted VCU, she received a letter that said VCU’s Title IX office determined that the conduct Black reported “could possibly” meet the definitions of sexual assault or sex- or gender-based discrimination outlined in VCU policies. Last month, the deputy Title IX coordinator for students at VCU, Tammi Slovinsky, told Black in an email that an “external attorney-investigator with specialized training and experience” had been assigned to her case.Black’s mother, Margo Stokes, and grandmother, Pauline Carver of Wytheville, said Black called them independently in the days after the alleged incident and told them Wilder gave her alcohol and tried to kiss her.“He just took a lot from Sydney when he did this because she really admired him, and so did I,” Carver said.last_img read more


first_imgHasbro’s been having fun with Nerf. Besides regular Nerf N-Strike blasters, there’s the zombie-themed Zombie Strike line, the wasteland-themed Doomlands line, and the alien-themed Alien Menace line. There’s also the girl-focused (and thankfully not too pink and cloying) Nerf Rebelle and car-launching Nerf Nitro series, but let’s focus on the goofy themed Nerf blasters. They’re absurd, and Hasbro has given us an exclusive look at the newest ones that will be on display at Toy Fair later this month.Ladies and gentlemen, here comes The Judge. Specifically Nerf Doomlands The Judge, the biggest and craziest themed blaster yet (and that includes the Zombie Strike Doominator, which has four rotating six-shot cylinders and is called the Doominator). This is the most Borderlands-ass Nerf gun I’ve ever seen. It’s a giant orange barrel of a gun with a rotating cylinder that holds 10 sets of triple dart holders. It fires three darts at a time like a huge shotgun,Like all of Hasbro’s themed Nerf blasters, it has some great details. Notice the molded dynamos behind the barrel, and the faux fasteners that make the gun look like it was riveted together out of old pipes and generators.The Zombie Strike Dreadbolt crossbow is the newest zombie-themed Nerf gun, and the first one to fire the new type of Nerf arrows. Back in the day, the Nerf Arrow was just a giant dart with fins on it (the original Nerf Bow and Arrow was actually the first Nerf product to fire projectiles). This new Nerf arrow is an actual shafted, fluted arrow. It just has a big Nerf knob on the end. This means the Dreadbolt actually fires it like a crossbow, using the tension of a bowstring instead of an air piston.Hasbro has made similar arrow-launching Nerf products before, like the Nerf Rebelle Revolution Bow, but this is the first zombie green crossbow to use the system. If you prefer darts fired by air pressure, the Zombie Strike Outbreaker Bow is already available.Finally, there’s the Alien Menace Voidcaster, which mechanically is a pretty standard dart-firing Nerf gun. It can fire four darts without reloading, but it doesn’t otherwise have a gimmick. That’s fine, because it looks like it it comes straight from Halo, or Lexx. It’s also the most affordable of the new blasters; it’s just $20, while the Dreadbolt and The Judge will retail for $50 and $60. All three new blasters will be available this fall, and will be displayed at Toy Fair along with tons and tons of other new toys Hasbro will be showing off for the coming year.last_img read more


first_img Elon Musk’s Cheeky ‘Nuke Mars!’ Post Is Taking Over TwitterTesla EV Catches Fire After Colliding With Tow Truck in Moscow Stay on target Whoa there, Elon! Why the crazy supervillain face? Oh, right! It’s because you’re well on your way to selling 20,000 flamethrowers. Fair enough!For those of you who’ve been living in a cave or repeatedly re-watching Rick and Morty episodes while you wait for the new season to arrive, Elon Musk’s Boring Company started selling flamethrowers recently. Here it is, in all its incendiary glory:Why would a company that specializes in carving multi-million-dollar tunnels under our cities sell something like this? Musk would counter that question with another question: why not? I mean… the whole thing about The Boring Company is that it’s the other kind of boring. That doesn’t mean they don’t enjoy a little good- natured tomfoolery.That, apparently, includes selling the flamethrower to their fans for a cool $500. Times the limited run of 20,000 that’s another $10 mil Musk has added to the company coffers.To clarify, this snazzy-looking little unit isn’t really a flamethrower. It’s more like a tiger torch, so you won’t be using it to cast searing arcs of flame and destruction. You could, however, use it to clear weeds from your sidewalk and driveway, apply roofing membranes, or make S’mores with unmatched swagger.Or, for those of you in management positions, you could use it to remind your employees you’re in charge. Like this: Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Musk was quick to advise, “don’t do this,” naturally.  He added “I want to be clear that a flamethrower is a super terrible idea,” just not so terrible that his company shouldn’t make and sell one.His shopping advice? “Definitely don’t buy one. Unless you like fun.” If you do, then by all means, get your butt over to The Boring Company web store and pre-order one before they’re all gone.last_img read more


first_imgIn late October 2018, the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C. removed five Dead Sea Scroll fragments from public view after testing indicated that they were fakes. The Dead Sea Scrolls are Jewish texts that date to the days of Jesus, discovered in caves at Qumran near the Dead Sea 70 years ago.The Museum of the Bible is a charitable museum. It opened in November 2017, showcasing artifacts that span 3,500 years of history.Museum of the Bible, Washington, D.C. Photo by Fuzheado CC BY-SA 4.0The $500 million museum, largely funded by the evangelical owner of Hobby Lobby, purchased a number of fragments of the Scrolls for its collection.But museum officials were forced to announce that five fragments showed “characteristics inconsistent with ancient origin.”A portion of the second discovered copy of the Isaiah scroll, 1QIsab.The museum is not disclosing who the fake fragments were purchased from.“Though we had hoped the testing would render different results, this is an opportunity to educate the public on the importance of verifying the authenticity of rare biblical artifacts, the elaborate testing process undertaken and our commitment to transparency,” said Jeffrey Kloha, Ph.D., chief curatorial officer for Museum of the Bible, in a statement. “As an educational institution entrusted with cultural heritage, the museum upholds and adheres to all museum and ethical guidelines on collection care, research and display.”Part of Dead Sea Scroll number 28a (1Q28a) from Qumran Cave 1.

Photo by Osama Shukir Muhammed Amin FRCP (Glasg) CC BY-SA 4.0The research of the fragments focused on “scribal quality and technique in the penning of the texts as well as the physical composition and current state of the manuscript media.”The museum sent five fragments to the German federal material research institute, BAM, for 3D digital microscopy, scanning X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and energy-dispersive x-ray spectroscopy (EDX) material analysis of the ink, sediment layers, and chemical nature of the sediment.Museum officials declined to say how they determined the fragments were fakes, because they don’t want people who engage in fraudulent scrolls and relics to know what mistakes to avoid.Dead Sea Scroll, Pesher Isaiah, from Qumran Cave 4. The Jordan Museum, Amman. Photo by Osama Shukir Muhammed Amin FRCP(Glasg) CC BY-SA 4.0An article posted on CNN in late 2017 had challenged the authenticity of the fragments, with the headline “Mystery at the New Bible Museum: Are Its Dead Sea Scrolls Fake?”In the article, academics and religious scholars wondered if the fragments purchased by the new museum were too good to be true.The Dead Sea Scrolls, adding up to more than 800 documents, were written between 200 BC and 70 AD, and contain parts of every book of the Old Testament except for the Book of Esther.Dead Sea Scroll 175, Testimonia, from Qumran Cave 4. The Jordan Museum, Amman. Photo by Osama Shukir Muhammed Amin FRCP(Glasg) CC BY-SA 4.0“The first of the writings were discovered in 1947 in a cave near the shore of the Dead Sea and are believed to have been produced by a Jewish sect known as the Essenes,” according to The New York Times. “Only a handful of the scrolls were found intact; most are fragments that scholars have reconstructed into hundreds of different manuscripts. Nearly all are housed in Jerusalem.”However, in the last 15 years a number of private collectors say they have somehow obtained fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls.Dead Sea Scroll 109, Qohelet or Ecclesiastes, from Qumran Cave 4. The Jordan Museum, Amman. Photo by Osama Shukir Muhammed Amin FRCP(Glasg) CC BY-SA 4.0On the website of Arstein Justnes, a professor of biblical studies at the University of Agder in Norway,  scholars and scientists have identified more than 70 Dead Sea Scroll fragments that surfaced on the antiquities market since 2002. Ninety percent of those are fake, Justnes says, including the ones at the Museum of the Bible.Gary A. Rendsburg, a professor of Jewish studies at Rutgers University, said, “There were those who immediately said, ‘These have to be forgeries.’ There couldn’t possibly be — from the exploration from the 1940s and ’50s — dozens of fragments sitting around that look like they came out of the cave yesterday.”Steve Green won’t say how much his family spent on the fragments. But other evangelicals, including a Baptist seminary in Texas and an evangelical college in California, have paid millions to purchase similar pieces of the Dead Sea Scrolls, reported CNN.Read another story from us: Hobby Lobby smuggling ringHobby Lobby had been investigated by the federal government for importing ancient Mesopotamian artifacts to the U.S. In July 2017 Hobby Lobby agreed to forfeit these artifacts that, it was revealed, had been illegally imported from Iraq.last_img read more
