Des tonnes de débris du tsunami japonais séchouent en Alaska

first_imgDes tonnes de débris du tsunami japonais s’échouent en AlaskaMardi, des écologistes ont indiqué que suite au tsunami survenu en mars 2011 au Japon, une grande quantité de débris avait voyagé à travers les océans pour finir par s’échouer sur les côtes de l’Alaska. Une vaste opération est ainsi prévue pour nettoyer les environs.De objets flottants non identifiés, des morceaux de polystyrène, des bouées : les débris envahissent depuis plusieurs mois les côtes d’Alaska, notamment celles de Montague Island, située à quelque 190 kilomètres au sud-est d’Anchorage. C’est ce dont ont alerté mardi des écologistes de l’organisation Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies qui ont d’ailleurs une idée bien précise de l’origine de ces débris. Selon eux, ceux-ci proviendraient directement d’Asie et plus précisément du Japon frappé en mars 2011 par un tsunami dévastateur.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?”Des objets venant d’Asie échouent depuis des années sur les côtes de l’Alaska mais la quantité enregistrée récemment est sans précédent. Nous n’avons jamais constaté un tel nombre. Avant, nous trouvions quelques dizaines de grosses bouées noires, utilisées dans l’aquaculture japonaise (…). Aujourd’hui, on en trouve par centaines”, a affirmé Patrick Chandler, responsable de l’organisation selon qui, “il n’y a pas d’autre cause possible à cette augmentation que le tsunami”.Selon les évaluations faites, le tsunami provoqué par un séisme de magnitude 9,0 aurait provoqué le rejet dans l’océan d’entre 5 et 20 millions de tonnes de débris, qui depuis dérivent vers l’Est. En mars dernier, un bateau de pêche japonais en perdition depuis la catastrophe a d’ailleurs été aperçu au large du Canada. Aujourd’hui, les écologistes entendent donc bien débarrasser les côtes d’Alaska de ces débris et ont pour cela organisé une vaste opération de nettoyage qui débutera jeudi et devrait durer 12 jours.

Report Hazard is waiting for Real Madrid move

first_imgAccording to Belgian football expert Kristof Terreur, the Chelsea forward is just waiting for Los Blancos to make a bid for him.According to Belgian football expert Kristof Terreur, Chelsea forward Eden Hazard is just waiting for Real Madrid to make a move for him.“He has rejected two contract offers so far and says that he doesn’t want to sign right now. That means he is waiting for something and that something means just one thing, Real Madrid,” Terreur was quoted by Sky Sports.“Real Madrid is still interested as far as I know, but they are still yet to make their move. They don’t have a personal agreement with him at this point, they don’t have an agreement with Chelsea and they haven’t even made the phone call like they did last summer.”Tammy Abraham, ChelseaChelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.“When they called last summer, Marina Granovskaia said that he wasn’t for sale and Real respected that,” he commented.“But they might come back in again as they need to strengthen their squad after this season and it is easier to get players with just over a year left on a contract.”“For him it is simple. It’s either staying at Chelsea or going to Real Madrid. He doesn’t think about PSG,” he added.“They have always been sniffing around the table and got the same answer – he’s already played in Ligue 1 and will only ever play for Lille if he returns.”last_img read more

SRK has a return gift for Andre Russell not happy with Kolkata

first_imgKolkata Knight Riders, after a promising start, have slipped away and despite the presence of a certain Andre Russell, they are just not able to close out games. After the blitz against the Royal Challengers Bangalore, KKR was still not able to cross the line and this now has the team stuck in the lower end of the table.Yes, the decision to keep Russell waiting in the wings will be discussed, the man himself wants a promotion, he wants KKR to be flexible and adapt to situations. His strike rate this season is hovering around 221 and yet he marches out to bat when the situation is dire. He has salvaged the side from a point of no return in a couple of matches already, but the rest of the batting order certainly need to look at themselves and provide him more support. Andre RussellIPLKKR co-owner Shah Rukh Khan, who is quite vocal about his side, took to Twitter and in a rather morose tone asked his side to win few games as a return gift for Andre Russell.  Shah Rukh Khan on Andre RussellSRK Twitter handleIn the eight innings so far, the Jamaican’s contribution with the bat has been immense, the lowest score he has managed is 45. However, he forever walks in to bat No. 5, 6 or even lower down the order when the ‘death’ overs are on. Despite all this, he has blitzed his way to bail KKR out of trouble – hence, it is no surprise that he is the leading run-scorer for KKR this season with a tally of 377. So, when he says that he wants to bat higher up the order, the management needs to sit down and give it a serious thought. And there is a method to this madness. Russell captains his side, Jamaica Tallawahs back home in CPL and hence, there is a reason why he wants to bat higher up the order. He believes that when he is in early, the opposition captain will bowl their best bowlers which will make the job far easier for other batsmen at the back end of the innings. For KKR, who have used Shubman Gill and Dinesh Karthik in the lower order will find the task easier if lesser bowlers are locked in against them. In this match against RCB, Nitish Rana and Rohin Uthappa fumbled around, they added 46 off 41 balls and despite this, KKR fell one hit away from chasing down the target. So there is merit in what the Jamaican has proposed. Perhaps, Shah Rukh Khan has made a point, perhaps Russell has tried to knock sense, perhaps KKR is listening?last_img read more

In Final Speech As Attorney General Loretta Lynch Says We Have To

first_imgBrynn Anderson/APAttorney General Loretta Lynch speaks at the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala., Sunday.Just days from the end of her tenure, Loretta Lynch took the stage Sunday at a historic Baptist church in Birmingham, Ala., to deliver her final planned speech as U.S. attorney general.“We can’t take progress for granted,” Lynch told the congregation. “We have to work. There’s no doubt that we still have a way to go — a long way to go.”In her speech, delivered on the eve of Martin Luther King Day, Lynch focused on her auspicious setting, Birmingham’s 16th Street Baptist Church. Last week, President Obama designated the church part of a new national monument commemorating the civil rights movement.It was at the church in 1963 that a Ku Klux Klan bombing left four black girls dead and 22 other people injured.“It reminds us, as few places can, that freedom is not free,” Lynch said. “And the price of freedom is constant vigilance.”She said she has seen the concerns that the progress made by King and others during the civil rights movement will be undone, “that with the turn of the electoral wheel, we will be seen as children of a lesser god.”But she countered those concerns with a call to hope, saying she has seen the hard work of her colleagues, of police officers reaching out to community members, of activists raising their voices.“We are Americans, and we have always pushed forward,” Lynch said, repeating a call to work that became something of a mantra: “Every generation has to work.”The speech comes on the heels of a 161-page Justice Department report on the Chicago Police Department, which concluded the department “engages in a pattern or practice of the use of excessive force.” That report included “numerous incidents” of shooting at fleeing suspects and observed “routinely abusive behavior” toward minority communities in the city.In an interview with NPR’s Michel Martin before her speech Sunday, Lynch called the Chicago report “emblematic of where our practice is: We try and look at the whole problem.“We’ve got to look at the causes within the police departments,” she continued. “We talk to community members who came in and told us their stories stories of pain, stories of loss — but also stories of police officers with whom they connected.”Asked about her regrets as she prepares to leave office, Lynch said again she regrets her unscheduled meeting last year with former President Bill Clinton, a conversation that raised questions about whether she could remain impartial during Hillary Clinton’s email investigation. She later said she would accept the FBI’s findings in the probe.But the Justice Department is “more than the work of more than one group of people and the work of more than one administration,” she told Michel. “The work that we do spans time, it spans generations and we build on it.”She added: “We have to admit that change is hard and policing is changing a lot in this country. That being said, I still believe that the work that we have done has been positive.”Copyright 2017 NPR. To see more, visit Sharelast_img read more

Tinkering with evolution Ecological implications of modular software networks

This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed in whole or part without the express written permission of Evolution of the modular structure of the network of dependencies between packages of the Debian GNU/Linux operating system. Packages are represented by nodes. A green arrow from package i to package j indicates that package i depends on package j, and a red arrow indicates that package i has a conflict with package j. Packages within a module (depicted by a big circle) have many dependencies between themselves and only a few with packages from other modules. During the growth of the operating system, the modular structure of the network of dependencies has increased: (I) The new packages added in successive releases depended mainly on previously existing packages within the same module, and hence, the size of the modules created in earlier releases increased over time; (ii) the number of modules also increased, although the new modules consisted only of a few new packages; and (iii) the relative number of dependencies between packages from different modules decreased. Moreover, the relative number of conflicts between packages from different modules decreased, whereas those within modules increased through the different releases of the operating system.

Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. They are also developing a dynamical model to mimic the growth of Debian over time – an effort which, if successful, might let them predict how many packages, dependencies, and conflicts will arise in the next release of the operating system. An interesting question would be,” he conjectures, “if there are limits to the number of packages that an operating system can offer to the users without jeopardizing its functionality and robustness. Following our analogy with the biological evolution, we could ask if there is a limit to biodiversity, that is, to the number of species that can coexist in our planet.”Regarding potential analogies with evolution and ecology, Fortuna points to macroevolution – that is, speciation and extinction processes – that he sees as being in some ways equivalent to the creation of new packages and the deprecation of those rendered obsolete from one release to the next. “Does the probability of a species becoming extinct depend on how long it’s been on the planet? In other words, are the most ancient species, like crocodiles, the ones with higher risk of extinction? We can formulate the question, which was already explored by Van Valen in the 1970’s, by replacing species with software packages. Why do some packages not exist after a subsequent release? Does a new software package created in one of the earliest releases have a high probability to persist over time? What does it depend on? We can calculate these probabilities following the identity of the packages of the Debian operating system through time. The data to do it are available, and we therefore might learn something from software studies that help us answer the biological question – because evolution works as a tinkerer in both cases.”In relation to the ecological processes, Fortuna illustrates, “When an oceanic island is created colonization and extinction are the main mechanisms that leads to the establishment of a stable community. This community assembly would be equivalent to the package installation process in a local computer. For example, dependencies and conflicts between packages mimic predator-prey interactions and competitive exclusion relationships, respectively. A predator can colonize the island only if the prey it feeds on is already there.”In Fortuna’s view, the same thing happens with software packages. “A package can be installed in a computer only if the packages it depends on are already installed. Ecologically similar prey species are going to compete with each other in the island for light and nutrients so that the best competitor is going to displace the others, which can then become extinct. Predators feeding on extinct prey are going to disappear as well. Conflicts between software packages have the same consequences: one package cannot be installed in the computer if it has a conflict with an already installed one, so that those packages depending on it cannot be installed either. This parallelism can help us understand the general principles operating on systems of different nature.”Reminiscent of AI-based evolutionary programming, Fortuna also says that their work might well lead to improved in silico models of evolutionary biology and population ecology. “Charles Ofria and his lab at Michigan State University are studying evolution by using self-replicating computer programs able to mutate and evolve over time.” The genome of these programs consists of a set of instructions that are executed by the central processing unit (CPU). Some of the mutations imply the insertion of random instructions into the genome. If the mutant program is able to reproduce faster than the others, its genome is going to persist through time. “It could be interesting to explore to what extent new instructions added to the genome interact with the preexisting ones – that is, whether or not there is a reuse of the genome instructions of these digital organisms and its resemblance with a modular structural pattern,” Fortuna observes. “The interplay between ecology and computer science is much more evident if we take a look at the work developed by Luis Zaman, Ofria’s graduate student, who is incorporating host-parasite interactions into these computer programs.”Looking further afield, Fortuna describes how other models or applications might be targeted using the team’s findings. “The closest study would be the comparison with the development pattern of other GNU/Linux distributions – openSuse, Fedora, Gentoo, and so on – as well as proprietary operating systems like Microsoft Windows and Apple OS X. The information needed to accomplish this task would easily be compiled for the first ones – but it will be much more difficult to get it for the last ones. The algorithms for detecting modular structures are publicly available. There are also powerful free SQL relational database management systems like PostgreSQL and MySQL to store, organize, and manage the information. So,’ he concludes, “the bottleneck is once again data availability.” More information: Evolutionof a modular software network, Publishedonline before print November 21, 2011, PNAS December 13, 2011 vol. 108 no. 50 19985-19989, doi: 10.1073/pnas.1115960108 Recognizing blood poisoning quicklycenter_img Explore further Lead researcher Miguel A. Fortuna, who worked with Juan A. Bonachela and Prof. Simon A. Levin, Director of Princeton’s Center for BioComplexity, describes the main challenges they encountered in designing and implementing the methods used to analyze OS the evolution. “The main difficulty we had was getting, organizing, and storing the data,” says Fortuna. “Notice that the network of interdependent packages of the last release analyzed was composed by more than 100,000 dependencies. “This complexity required that they use structuring query languages (SQL) for managing databases. “We were very careful when identifying software packages through different release – sometimes there could be different versions of the same package within the same release due to the improvements made by developers.”While Fortuna notes that quantifying the increase of the code’s modular structure time was the main insight of their study, he points out that reuse of code and software’s hierarchical structure were suggested by the pioneering work of Ricard V. Solé and Sergi Valverde in the early 2000s. “The interest that our paper has drawn has helped us to discover work we did not know about software systems. The idea of using the network of dependencies and conflicts of different releases of the Debian operating system as a case study has facilitated the understanding of how code development evolves over time without the need to go deeper into the details of the code itself.”Another key innovation cited by Fortuna was the team’s use of a very precise method to detect the modular structure of the operating system. “We borrowed an algorithm developed by physicists and widely used in ecology nowadays. In fact, this work has been constantly enriched by an interdisciplinary mixture of ideas from biology and physics.”The team already has its eye on ways of improving and extending the current experimental design. “The most important follow-up of our study would be the exploration of proprietary software like the Microsoft Windows operating system,” Fortuna comments. “Since Debian is the result of a volunteer effort to create a free operating system, you have the freedom to distribute copies, receive source code, modify the software or use pieces of it in new free programs. The question then becomes, what does the software development pattern looks like when the company developing code doesn’t offer this freedom to their users? A comparison of the structure of both development strategies would be more than interesting.” ( — In the 1960s, Dr. Lawrence J. Fogel introduced what would come to be known as evolutionary programming to the nascent field of Artificial Intelligence in an attempt to produce intelligent software without relying on neural networks modeled on the brain or human expert-based heuristic programming. Now, researchers in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University have shown the inverse – namely, that network theory, when applied to software systems, provides surprising insights into biology, ecology and evolution. Specifically, they explored evolutionary behavior in complex systems by analyzing how the Debian GNU/Linux operating system utilizes modular code. The researchers found that how the network becomes more modular over time in various OS installations often parallels that of ecological relationships between interacting species.

Small but vocal turnout in Costa Rica for global climate march

We’re continuing with our high levels of consumption and an irrational use of resources. While it’s true we’re trying to become carbon-neutral and recycle, we’re still in diapers,” she said.Retiree Luis Hernández, 63, who has dual nationality and is a member of Democrats Abroad, said he was protesting against both Costa Rica and the United States.“Right now there are ways to eliminate carbon emissions, but the problem is big industry doesn’t want to change because they would be losing a lot money,” he said. “It’s all about money.” Alberto Font/The Tico Times Alberto Font/The Tico Times Alberto Font/The Tico Times Alberto Font/The Tico Times Alberto Font/The Tico Times See video below and photo gallery at end of story.A small group of demonstrators, mostly from the United States, gathered in front of the U.S. Embassy in San José on Sunday afternoon to join a global rally to promote action on climate change.Shouting “There’s no Planet B” and other slogans, the demonstrators urged action from governments, multinational companies and politicians worldwide to fight climate change.

Daughters of slain Honduran activist want intl commission to investigate mothers death

first_imgThe daughters of slain Honduran environmental and indigenous rights activist Berta Cáceres were in Costa Rica last week to speak at the University of Costa Rica about their mother’s fight against the Agua Zarca dam and their struggle to bring their mother’s killers to justice.Cáceres, who co-founded the Civic Council of Popular and Indigenous Organizations of Honduras (COPINH), was shot to death on March 3 at a home in the western town of La Esperanza. Just a year earlier, she had won the prestigious Goldman Environmental Prize for her work in trying to stop construction of the Agua Zarca dam, which would displace hundreds of indigenous Lenca people.She had received dozens of death threats for her work.Five people were arrested in May in connection with her death, including an employee of Desarrollos Energéticos (DESA), the company in charge of the dam project, an active duty soldier and a retired soldier.The Tico Times sat down last week with Cáceres’ daughters, Laura Zúñiga Cáceres and Berta Zúñiga Cáceres, to talk about the case. Excerpts from the interview follow:Why did you decide to come to Costa Rica?Laura — We came to Costa Rica as part of a series of international visits to continue raising awareness about my mom’s case, to demand justice, to stop hydroelectric projects on indigenous land and to continue calling for an independent international commission to investigate my mother’s death.What is the status of the investigation?Berta — The prosecutor is part of MACCIH [Support Mission Against Corruption and Impunity in Honduras, an investigative body backed by the Organization of American States], which was developed specifically to address corruption. But that’s not what we’re asking for.What we want is an independent, interdisciplinary commission of international members overseen by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights. [The IACHR] presented this proposal two months ago to the government of Honduras. We still have not gotten a response.It would be an international commission with a similar mandate to the one investigating the disappearance of the 43 students in Ayotzinapa [Mexico]. It would independently verify the objectivity of the investigation at all levels of the crime.Five suspects have been arrested for allegedly killing your mother. Are you confident that these are the people behind the crime?Laura — They’ve arrested five people connected to the act of the crime, two of them accused of perpetrating the crime. One [of those arrested] is from the armed forces, a trainer with the military police.Berta — The other was the chief environmental operations officer for the company DESA, Sergio Rodríguez, who we blamed from the beginning. Also, the former security chief of the same company.In spite of the arrests, we’ve seen a series of irregularities in the investigation, including a rush to arrest these suspects when there is insufficient evidence to convict them. They are acting like this is already resolved, that it’s all done.But there’s no looking into the masterminds behind the crime. The operations chief didn’t make this call on his own. There were other people who ordered this who are not being investigated.The fact that someone in the military was involved in this suggests that the government was complicit in the crime. We don’t think the government will investigate these people and that’s why we’re asking for an independent commission.Is there someone in particular you suspect?Laura — We believe that there are powerful economic interests behind the order [to kill my mother]. Beyond individuals, I think it has to do with the businesses and how they operate. We’re very concerned about the general manager of the company [DESA], David Castillo. He’s ex-military who was trained at West Point and has been linked to military intelligence.What role could the U.S. play to encourage the Honduran government to accept an independent commission?Berta — There has been contradictory responses to this case from the U.S. We were very surprised at the high level of interest in the case from some U.S. congressional representatives. But we believe there is support for the Honduran government’s position from the U.S. State Department.Also, the U.S. government needs to wash its hands of any responsibility it may have had in this case, including financing the military units who operate where the project is, USAID’s involvement with the company, and U.S. military policy towards Honduras, which my mother was critical of when she was still alive.We’ve had meetings with memebers of the State Department and they insist we look at other options outside of an independent commission. The U.S. has strong influence with the Honduran government and we think if they would have supported us in [forming an independent commission], it would have already happened.It leaves much to be desired by us as victims, family members and as an organization [COPINH]. We believe the U.S. could do much more.We think that the bill on military cooperation presented by U.S. Representative [Hank] Johnson is very interesting. We believe it’s obvious that the military operates with impunity.Is there an alternative you’d be open to besides this independent commission?Berta — There have also been numerous calls for an independent commission to investigate the case from groups across Europe. The Honduran government says that it’s doing everything it needs to and does not need international participation, but we believe that the commission would benefit the investigation.There are other groups that could lend support, like the United Nations, but we believe the commission would be the best. We’re going to continue fighting for it and, meanwhile, continue fighting for access to information in the investigation. It’s something very basic that is in the law that we’ve been denied.What is the status of COPINH and the movement against the Agua Zarca project?Berta — The company remains in control of the concession. We have an ongoing complaint to cancel it. However, the project continues. Neither the death of my mom nor the death of Nelson García has ended it.There has been a delay in the project but we’re concerned it will be only temporary and it’ll start up again after attention to the case has died down.There are 51 concessions for hydroelectric projects in the area and COPINH has complaints against 49 of them, including the Aguas Zarcas project, for violating laws requiring prior consultation [with affected communities] and access to information.One of the positive things that has come out of all of this is that charges have been filed against the former vice-minister of the Secretariat of Natural Resources and the Environment, Marco Jonathan Laínez, for abuse of authority for granting an environmental license [for Agua Zarca] without an environmental impact study.There’s also a case against the former mayor of Intibucá for abuse of authority for falsifying signatures from the community in support of the project.We will continue to demand the govenment definitively and permanently nullify the concession held by the company.Laura — We remain steadfast in our fight for justice for Honduras and the world. A case like this cannot end in impunity. We all deserve justice.

Shedding Light on CRA Lending Practices

first_img<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span> A recent seminar discussed the findings from an Urban Institute report, commissioned by the National Association of Affordable Housing Lenders that analyzes data on recent lending practices subject and not subject to CRA—including single and multifamily housing, community development, small business, and small farm loans. The seminar focused on the changes that have taken place in lending since the mid-1990s. However, the panel also noted that the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) regulations have lagged behind in the face of modernization. It also touched upon the revisions to the CRA regulatory framework. Panelists also discussed the importance of banks to communities, especially those in the low- and moderate-income bracket, differences in lending behaviors between banks, and nonbank lenders. The seminar also elucidated on the implications of the study’s findings for CRA policy as well as ways to enable lenders to serve community needs in a more modern, effective way. Click here for more.
