The White Tower Melbourne finds a new home

first_imgA multi-faceted community project was gifted to the City of Melbourne on Sunday 27 November, 2016, during the festival for the 32nd anniversary celebrations of the Sister City relationship between Melbourne and Thessaloniki at Federation Square.The replica was created thanks to an initiative of Thessaloniki Association ‘The White Tower’, established in 1961 by a handful of migrants in Melbourne.‘The White Tower Melbourne’ is a replica of the White Tower, Thessaloniki’s most famous landmark, meticulously decorated by 8,000 white laurels, the symbol of highest status and an emblem of prosperity and fame. These flowers were crocheted by ladies in Melbourne’s local community as well as ladies in Athens and Thessaloniki.As of last week, Melbourne’s flower-covered White Tower stands proudly in the foyer of the Greek Centre in Lonsdale Street. This is the first leg of the replica’s tour of honour to the various venues around Melbourne. “It was always my intention that the tower be located, for short periods, at local venues, primarily ones which hosted workshops. It will go to various schools, community halls and will ultimately be housed in a museum or gallery. Originally it was created as a community project, but in the end it has become a major work of art,” Christina Despoteris, former manager and coordinator of the project, told Neos Kosmos.“I thank Bill Papasteriadis, Costas Markos and all at the Greek Community of Melbourne who have embraced the project and have understood from the outset the importance and the significance of such a major project. The tower will remain and stand proudly during the Greek Festival on 25 and 26 February for all the community to admire,” she added.Ms Despoteris has recently been appointed to the Sister Cities Australia (SCA) board as an executive member. SCA is the national organisation responsible for the promotion of the relationship of sister cities that will be responsible for the tower’s tour, its placement and ultimately, its permanent home.

LG veut lancer la 3D mobile

first_imgLG veut lancer la 3D mobileLe fabricant coréen LG s’apprêterait à lancer un appareil mobile avec affichage en trois dimensions. D’après CNETFrance.fr, ses utilisateurs n’auraient pas besoin de lunettes spéciales pour voir les images en relief. La 3D est décidément la vedette des technologies cette année. Après les télévisions nouvelle génération présentées au Consumer Electronic Show, la première console portable 3D dévoilée hier par Nintendo, ou encore les futures chaînes annoncées en trois dimensions… cette technologie qui fait rêver veut s’emparer de tous nos écrans. LG veut ainsi proposer des écrans 3D mobiles, prochainement. Le fabricant coréen a déjà annoncé qu’il ne faudrait pas attendre 3 ans pour voir ces nouveaux appareils débarquer dans les rayons des magasins hi tech. CNETFrance.fr indique que LG a déjà présenté un prototype lors du CES de Las Vegas au début de l’année. Il s’agirait d’un écran 4,3 pouces en 3D, mais celui-ci n’était pas encore finalisé. Pour le moment, on ignore toutefois de quel appareil il s’agira au final. Une tablette ? Un smartphone ? Les technophiles vont devoir s’armer de patience pour avoir la réponse.

Moins de risques danévrisme pour les consommateurs de fruits

first_imgMoins de risques d’anévrisme pour les consommateurs de fruitsSelon une étude menée auprès de plus de 80.000 personnes par des chercheurs suédois, les consommateurs réguliers de fruits présentent moins de risque d’être victime d’un anévrisme de l’aorte abdominale et de sa rupture.Une étude publiée dans la revue Circulation par des chercheurs suédois démontre à quel point les fruits sont bénéfiques pour ceux qui en consomment régulièrement (plus de deux fruits de taille moyenne par jour). À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?La recherche, qui a été menée pendant 13 ans auprès de plus de 80.000 personnes âgées de 46 à 84 ans, montre que les fruits jouent un rôle sur la prévention de la survenue des anévrismes de l’aorte abdominale et leur rupture. Le risque serait en effet diminué de 25 % chez les grands consommateurs de fruits.De plus, les scientifiques ont relevé que plus la quantité de fruits consommée est importante, plus le risque de rupture d’anévrisme diminue. Ainsi, en mangeant trois fruits par jour, le risque chute de 44 %. Toutefois, les légumes ne semblent pas intervenir dans le cas précis de l’anévrisme.Pour les chercheurs suédois, ce sont les antioxydants que contiennent les fruits qui jouent ce rôle protecteur. Mais le Pr François Paillard, cardiologue, estime également que si “la piste des antioxydants est évidemment privilégiée, la consommation de fruits pourrait aussi avoir un impact favorable sur la cholestérolémie et la pression artérielle”, ce qui expliquerait cette diminution des risques d’anévrisme.Le 23 août 2013 à 18:30 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

40 Countries Agree Cars Must Have Automatic Braking Systems

first_img Forty countries led by Japan and the European Union — but not the U.S. or China — have agreed to require new cars and light commercial vehicles to be equipped with automated braking systems starting next year in an effort to reduce crashes, according to a United Nations agency.The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe said Tuesday that a draft agreement reached Feb. 1 is set to be formally adopted in June.The UN regulation require all vehicles sold to come equipped with Advanced Emergency Braking Systems (AEBS) technology that “employ sensors to monitor the proximity of the vehicle or pedestrian in front and detect situations where the relative speed and distance between the two vehicles or between the vehicle and pedestrian suggest that a collision is imminent.” In such a situation, if the driver does not react to the system’s warning alerts, emergency braking will be automatically applied to avoid the collision or at least to mitigate its effects.The Associated Press reports that the measure will apply to vehicles at “low speeds”: 60 kilometers per hour (42 mph) or less, and only affects new cars sold in the markets of signatory countries — so vehicle owners won’t be required to retrofit their cars and trucks already on the roads today.The site of a Jan. 28, 2019 accident in Brussels, Belgium that injured a grandmother and her two grandchildren.(Photo Credit: Thierry Roge / AFP / Getty Images)A study by Euro NCAP and Australasian NCAP concluded that AEBS lead to a 38 percent reduction in real-world rear-end crashes at low speeds. According to estimates by the European Commission, AEBS could save more than 1,000 lives every year within the EU.AEBS are already available for some cars in some countries, but there were no standard technical requirements guaranteeing the effective performance of such systems so far, the Commission said.The agency is hoping the regulation will significantly improve road safety, especially in cities, where in the European Union alone, over 9,500 fatalities were recorded in 2016, accounting for 38 percent of all road deaths. Inside urban areas, 50 percent of the fatalities were drivers and 40 percent were pedestrians.Th regulation would mean that over 15 million new cars in the EU (sales figures for 2017) and over 4 million new cars in Japan (sales figures for 2018) would be equipped with the AEBS technology every year.China, the United States, and India were among the countries that have not signed on to the regulations, the AP said.More on Geek.com:Ford Wants to Design Cars With Virtual Reality SketchesWatch: Tesla, EVs Were Struggling During the Polar Vortex, TooFord’s Sweaty ‘Robot Butt’ Tests Car Seat Durability Keto Turns Your Smartphone Into Your Car KeysAston Martin Will Build You Your Very Own Supervillain Lair Stay on targetlast_img read more

Vancouver mayor most councilors to get raises

first_imgThe Vancouver mayor and members of the city council, with one exception, will receive salary increases in January for the first time since 2009, the salary review commission decided Thursday.Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt’s monthly salary will increase 4.5 percent, from $2,200 to $2,300, or $27,600 a year.Councilors Jack Burkman, Anne McEnerny-Ogle, Alishia Topper, Bart Hansen and Bill Turlay will receive 1 percent increases, from $1,781 a month to $1,800, or $21,600 a year.The position of mayor pro tem, currently occupied by Larry Smith, was the biggest source of discussion on Thursday. The mayor pro tem wields the gavel at meetings in the mayor’s absence and stands in for him at ribbon-cuttings and other community events. A previous salary commission decided the extra duties were worth extra money. But this commission decided it was too much extra money and decreased the pro tem’s monthly pay 5 percent, from $2,000 to $1,900, or $22,800 a year.The vote for the 2015-16 salary schedule was 3-1, with Chairman Lyle Coblentz dissenting because he disagreed with lowering the salary for the mayor pro tem.Salary review commission members Stan Girt, Candace Jameson and Barry Hemphill voted in favor of the new salaries.Member Ben De Lozier was absent. He had to tend to a water leak at his home, he explained in an email.At earlier meetings, commission members generally agreed that raises were due because the city’s finances have improved, even if the council and mayor already earn higher salaries than their counterparts at similarly sized cities that, like Vancouver, don’t have a strong mayor form of government.Cities including Tacoma and Spokane have full-time mayors, but in Vancouver the administrative duties are overseen by City Manager Eric Holmes. The mayor and council set policy and represent the city on various boards.last_img read more

Naked And Unafraid 6 Wild Facts About Naked M

first_img Gregory G Dimijian Naked And Unafraid: 6 Wild Facts About Naked Mole Rats by NPR News Pien Huang 8.21.19 2:03pm Naked mole rats don’t look like they’d be one of nature’s superstars. They’re about the size and shape of small sweet potatoes. These rodents are native to the grasslands of East Africa, and are mostly hairless, wrinkled, and blind. And yet, they’ve evolved some special behaviors and features that help them thrive in harsh environments in which other mammals (humans included) would wither.Kenton Kerns, assistant curator of small mammals at The Smithsonian’s National Zoo in Washington, DC, says visitors often scurry past their naked mole rat exhibit in disgust. “I always feel like, ‘No, come back! Let us tell you what you’re running away from,’ ” he says.When they were new to science, in the 1970’s, researchers studied them for their unusual behavior and social structure. In the past two decades or so, scientists have been looking into their super survival traits — long life spans and apparent lack of aging — for lessons on how humans can stay healthy and live longer.And for some of us — they’re just one of nature’s most delightful, weird wonders. Here’s a primer on what makes them so amazing:It’s just one big naked mole rat colony.They’re eusocial, which means they live all crowded together underground, in a colony, like bees or ants, with a queen who has babies and a bunch of workers who do everything else — tend to the nursery, dig out new tunnels, find new tubers to eat, and guard the den.”If you think about being the size of a cocktail hot dog, and everyone out there on the African plains wants a snack, it’s not an easy life,” says Stan Braude, a biologist at Washington University in St. Louis who studies naked mole rats in the wild. Living in groups, he says, allows them to divide up the labor of staying safe, finding enough food, and birthing and raising baby mole rats.Does your skin hang low? Yes, if you’re a naked mole rat.Naked mole rats have physical traits that seem uniquely suited to their environments.Their skin hangs wrinkly and loose on their bodies — it snags like a sweater, but doesn’t tear, on pebbles and other hindrances in their underground tunnels.It’s consistently hot and humid in those tunnels — generally about 90 degrees F, with up to 70% humidity. Naked mole rats are cold-blooded, which saves them the trouble (and energy) of thermoregulating.They chew like a beaver. A quarter of their muscle mass resides in their jaws, and their lips close behind their teeth, so they don’t get mouthfuls of soil while digging. They use their two front teeth to burrow underground in the East African grasslands, through hard-packed dirt. They have even been known to chew through concrete with their teeth-shovels.They’re icons of resilience.They don’t drink water, and can survive up to 18 minutes without oxygen with no apparent brain damage. They don’t feel pain from injury and inflammation.”It just seems like now, they do everything,” says Eileen Lacey, biology professor and curator of mammals at the University of California, Berkeley. Researchers are studying the biology and physiology of naked mole rats, in hopes of finding new treatments that could help humans lessen pain, prevent cancer, and live longer. They’re just gonna live forever.Or it seems like that, to other rodents. Naked mole rats are the longest-living rodents we know of. While mice and rats live for a maximum of four to five years, some naked mole rats are over 30 years old and going strong.They also don’t seem to exhibit the typical mammalian signs of aging. The queen can have babies throughout her life. And while they do slow down as they get older, they appear to be resistant to aging-related diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s (Scientists caution that we haven’t been studying them long enough to know the natural end to their lifespan). Day and night? It’s all the same.The National Zoo and the Pacific Science Center have live 24-hour feeds of their naked mole rat exhibits. They’re active around the clock, so you can catch them eating, napping, doing their business, moving piles of shavings, and generally hanging out anytime. They’re here for you, when you’re ready to give them a second look.Pien Huang is NPR’s Reflect America Fellow.

Recently released research commissioned by the Au

first_imgRecently released research, commissioned by the Australian Cruise Association (ACA), shows that cruising Australia’s spectacular coastline has never been more popular, with 1.63 million Australians estimated to have taken a cruise by the end of this financial year.A third of Australians who participated in the research indicated they will cruise sometime in the next 12 months.The research was undertaken by consulting group, The BHive, in order to understand the future demand, and needs, for cruising in Australia, so that the industry might prepare in line with the projections. As the Australian Cruise Association does not represent the interests of the cruise lines but rather those organisations involved in bringing the ships into the ports, their focus for members was about how to shape their onshore strategies.A critical and welcome finding in the report is that cruise growth stimulates new visitation to destinations rather than replacing land-based visits. The results found that three out of five travellers consider cruising a good way to sample a destination and two thirds of those who have taken a cruise to a destination have returned. A small number also reported extending their time onshore with pre- or post- cruise stays citing that land packages were an important incentive for this.Another interesting finding is the changing face of cruise passengers. While currently dominated by couples, especially empty nesters, families and under 35s are showing growing interest in cruising, suggesting a new opportunity for Aussie destinations. This market is more likely to be adventurous – reflected in their interest in expedition and small ship cruising; great news for Australia’s regional ports which can easily support visits by this style of ship.Headlining the places to visit – remote locations like Broome, Queensland’s islands or capital cities – Hobart and Darwin for small ships and expedition cruising; Sydney for luxury. australiaAustralian Cruise AssociationcruiseresearchstudyThe BHivelast_img read more

first_imgMore people are booking flights from the UK to the US because of the weak dollar, it has been revealed.A report from the US Department of Commerce showed that the number of Brits booking a trip to the US remained strong during the first half of 2008, with experts projecting further growth for the remainder of the year.The number of flights increased from four to nine per cent in the second quarter of 2008 compared to 2007, with the favourable exchange rate being cited as the primary cause for the surge in passenger numbers.According to the report: “For the second quarter of 2008, the majority (80 percent) of the trade reported that bookings had increased. Independent travel continued to grow at a faster pace than package travel, but both registered growth for the quarter.”Despite the attractive prices, aviation expert Martin Evans has said that the US won’t remain cheaper for much longer, with the rising price of oil and the cancellation of many routes likely to cause an increase in flight prices next year.
