Chine une femme fera partie de léquipage du Shenzhou IX

first_imgChine : une femme fera partie de l’équipage du Shenzhou IXPour la première fois de son histoire, la Chine s’apprête à envoyer une femme dans l’espace. Une des deux candidates sera prochainement choisie.Le prochain vaisseau spatial chinois Shenzhou (“Vaisseau divin”) IX, partira “autour de la mi-juin” à bord d’une fusée Longue Marche. Il décollera depuis la base de Jiuquan dans le désert de Gobi et rejoindra le module de station spatiale Tiangong-1 (“Palais céleste”), actuellement en orbite autour de la Terre. Mais la nouveauté concerne ses occupants. Shenzhou IX embarquera trois astronautes qui seront sélectionnés dans une liste qui compte quatre hommes et deux femmes. Or, si les (heureux) élus ne sont pas encore connus, selon des sources concordantes citées par la presse officielle, l’équipage sera composé de deux hommes et d’une femme. La Chine sera ainsi le troisième pays, après les Etats-Unis et l’URSS, à envoyer une femme dans l’espace grâce à sa propre technologie. Les deux femmes retenues, Wang Yaping et Liu Yang, sont toutes deux des pilotes de chasse. Et même si presque personne ne les connaissait il n’y a que quelques jours, l’une d’elle entrera dans l’Histoire. En attendant, les deux femmes officiers restent enveloppées de mystère. Liu Yang “a demandé à ses parents de ne pas parler aux médias de sa mission”, a déclaré au China Daily son oncle. Elèves brillantes, ces deux pilotes présentent également des états de service irréprochables. Wang Yaping a notamment, en mai 2008, participé à l’acheminement de l’aide humanitaire dans la région du Sichuan après le tremblement du terre qui avait fait des dizaines de milliers de victimes. Puis avait, en août de la même année, réalisé des missions d’ensemencement des nuages autour de la capitale chinoise, censées provoquer des précipitations loin des sites des compétitions.Des “taïkonautes” prêtes à voler À lire aussiBoisson, météorite et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 5 septembreQuant à Liu Yang, les journaux ont largement relaté le sang froid dont elle a fait preuve un jour où elle a percuté en vol une nuée de pigeons qui ont fortement endommagé son jet, qu’elle est malgré tout parvenue à poser. Toutes deux ont été formées au centre national d’entraînement des “taïkonautes” (nom donné par les Chinois aux spationautes). “Il est classique pour les astronautes chinois de commencer comme pilote dans les forces aériennes. Tous les astronautes chinois ont en commun cette expérience”, a expliqué à l’AFP Morris Jones, un expert australien des questions spatiales.Cependant, M. Jones pense que l’entraînement des deux femmes s’est fait en accéléré pour qu’elles soient opérationnelles pour la station orbitale. “Je pense que leur entraînement a été plus intensif et qu’il a omis certaines matières non essentielles. Ces femmes sont prêtes à voler dans l’espace, mais elles n’ont pas été formées au même niveau qu’un astronaute complètement formé”, a-t-il souligné.Le 14 juin 2012 à 20:04 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Turner Gives Some Details On Plan To Consider Removal Of Confederate Monuments

first_imgListen Al OrtizHouston Mayor Sylvester Turner says the process to decide about the removal of Confederate statues and monuments from public property that the City has just started will be “thoughtful.”Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner is elaborating on his plan to consider the removal of Confederate monuments located on public property.During the customary press conference held after the City Council’s Wednesday meeting, Turner noted he is reacting to renewed demand from some Houstonians after the tragic rally held in Charlottesville.The Mayor made clear the process to decide about the removal will be “thoughtful,” but he also gave his share of advice to Houstonians.“I think it’s also very important that we not allow the national discourse, and what’s being said and how things are being handled on the national level, to flow down into the city of Houston and pull us apart,” Turner said.As of now, the Mayor only knows of two Confederate monuments on public property, which are ‘The Spirit of the Confederacy’, located in the Sam Houston Park, and the statue of Dick Dowling, located in one of the access points to Hermann Park.In addition to the information he receives from his staff about the Confederate statues and monuments that are located in property belonging to the City, the Mayor added he wants to also seek input from experts at local universities, such as the University of Houston, Texas Southern University and Rice University.“If there’s a significant population in Houston that feels offended and feels that statue reinforces a racist point of view, I think that statue should be brought down. Statues are not put in place to impose a point of view on people,” noted in that regard historian Jeremi Suri, with the University of Texas at Austin, speaking on Houston Matters.The City says the first step in the process will be an inventory of Confederate monuments.

DC Leaders Gear Up For Best Summer Jobs Program Yet

first_imgAmid a budget cut and a pending legislation, D.C. leaders are gearing up to ensure that this year’s Marion S. Barry Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) is the most impactful, yet.For nearly four decades, the program has offered jobs to D.C. youth, many of whom live in neighborhoods with the city’s highest rates of poverty. On average, the program serves between 11,000 to 13,000 youth each year. Participants from the ages of 14-15 earn $5.25 per hour, participants from the ages of 16-21 receive $8.25 an hour, and those ages 22-24 bring in $12.50 an hour.Odie Donald II, director of the Department of Employment Services, said that he is seeking public comment to improve the city’s Summer Youth Employment Ptogram. (Courtesy photo)However, despite the number of youths the program serves, it is facing a financial loss this year, after the D.C. Council cut its budget by $2 million. “That was a huge hit,” Odie Donald II, director of the Department of Employment Services (DOES), told the AFRO. “But we are trying to ensure that no youth are affected.”Donald said that the department has made administrative changes, staff adjustments, partnerships with new businesses, and other improvements to account for the deficit.D.C. Council member Elissa Silverman (I-At Large), chair of the committee on labor and workforce development, is also working to enhance the program. Last summer, she visited more than 20 SYEP worksites to get “a real on-the-ground understanding of what’s going on in the program.” Combined with input from the D.C. auditor and an independent evaluator, she found that the program’s quality is not the same for all employers and participants.“What we want to do is have a consistent experience,” Silverman told the AFRO. In December, she proposed legislation that mandates DOES to focus more on life skills, age-appropriate job placements, the application process and slots for older youth who are not in school or working.“It’s a very important program and a real seminal experience for young Washingtonians,” she said. “I think we can optimize it even more.”Donald said that he is open to partnering with the D.C. council but also has reservations about the proposed legislation.“I think that [Silverman’s] enthusiasm is commendable, but it would be helpful if she partnered with the administration on these activities because we’re the subject matter experts on implementing programs,” Donald said. “But the insight from her and the community are not only valuable, they’re also something that we want, need, and desire—I think that together we can do a much better job to enhance the program instead of drastically changing something that’s working.”According to Donald, DOES is already in the process of making several changes outlined in the legislation.One of the most comprehensive upgrades is to the online registration portal, which began two years ago. “This year, we believe we perfected it so the process for people who were in the program last year will be streamlined—it’s unbelievable,” Donald said.Instead of waiting in overwhelmingly long lines at the DOES headquarters, new participants can complete registration documents online. Meanwhile, past participants will only have to provide verifications such as a picture ID and proof of residency.The online portal also offers participants an orientation and lessons in financial planning; gives them information on worksites, schedules, and compensation; and allows them to monitor SmarTrip cards for work travel and make social media posts related to work experiences.“They can literally do everything from their smartphone—so that’s just another big deal for us,” Donald continued.During her research, Silverman found that many participants had not mastered “soft skills” such as dressing in appropriate work attire, communicating effectively with employers and navigating workplace conflicts.The online portal assists with those things as well. Participants can take lessons and earn badges of completion to show that they’ve mastered these components.In the future, Silverman hopes to see the soft skills implemented not only online but as a larger component of the program throughout the entire summer.As for the legislation, she plans to host a youth roundtable, solicit more public feedback, conduct more research, and host another hearing to fine tune the bill. “It’s about enhancing SYEP to make sure that the skills that are important in life and professional development are in the program,” she said.Donald envisions further progress that builds on the success of leaders who have already matriculated through the program. “My true hope is that it increases so that most D.C. mayors have gone through SYEP, many of the doctors that are keeping us healthy have gone through SYEP, one of our future police chiefs is from SYEP, that the teachers who are investing in our students are SYEP,” he said. “I hope that those folks who go through the program are really invested in D.C. to stay here and change the face of the District, but also become national leaders.”last_img read more

Albert Einstein was Offered the Presidency of Israel – He Turned it

first_imgNobel Laureate Albert Einstein, though best known for his genius and the theory of relativity, was also an outspoken political activist throughout his life. He used his fame and influence to back causes he truly believed in, denouncing Nazism in Germany, campaigning for the State of Israel, and criticizing racism in the United States.Towards the end of his life, he was even offered the chance to become the second president of Israel but respectfully declined. The first president of Israel, Chaim Weizmann, stated that Einstein was “the greatest Jew alive” and wished him to be his successor. However Einsten, who was 73 at the time, and not even an Israeli citizen, cited old age, inexperience, and insufficient people skills as reasons why he wouldn’t be the proper choice.Einstein during his visit to the United States.Einstein’s involvement in politics and social causes had early beginnings. In 1919, after Einstein’s theory of relativity was confirmed, he became a well-known celebrity almost overnight.Rather than restricting himself to only talking about science when he was interviewed, he also aired his political views.However, The Smithsonian reports that, from the beginning, even his friends cautioned him against using his new celebrity to speak out, urging him to stop because he didn’t know what he was talking about.Einstein in 1947.Einstein was a pacifist at heart and championed many different causes. Before Hitler came to power, the physicist denounced compulsory military service in Europe as well as cautioning against anti-Semitism and the ideals of the Nazi party.He spoke out about the racism he observed on trips to the United States and protested injustices such as the Scottsboro Boys trial, where nine black teenagers were falsely accused of raping a white woman, and eight of them were sentenced to death.Photo of Albert Einstein and Charlie Chaplin at the Los Angeles premiere of the film City Lights. Einstein said Chaplin was the only person in Hollywood he wanted to meet.When Hitler came to power in January of 1933, Einstein was in the United States, safe from the repercussions of being Jewish in Germany at the time, having accepted a job in California just the previous month. As it had become clearer that the Nazi party was rapidly rising to power, Einstein’s views had evolved.Einstein with his wife Elsa.According to The Atlantic, he came to realize that pacifism was no longer an option and the most important issue facing Europe was how to defeat Hitler, no matter the means. His outspokenness and outright criticism angered the German government, who then attacked both his science and the fact that he was Jewish.This didn’t dampen Einstein’s fervor for speaking out against Hitler and the atrocities his government was committing. In 1939 and 1940, he even wrote to President Roosevelt, urging him to support the atomic bomb project despite the fact that Einstein was not a part of it.Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 1933.The scientist felt that the US needed to be able to counter Germany if they were also able to develop one.He is said, however, to have reacted with great sadness when he learned of the atomic bomb that had been dropped on Hiroshima.The job Einstein had originally held in California when he first arrived permanently in the US was only a temporary position, but he eventually found a job at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, NJ, where he worked until his death in 1955.Einstein, Flexner, John R. Hardin, and Herbert Maass at the laying of the Fuld Hall cornerstone, at the Institute for Advanced Study on May 22, 1939. Photo by Unknown photographer – Shelby White and Leon Levy Archives Center, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, NJ, USAIn Princeton at the time when Einstein moved there, churches, schools, and neighborhoods were strictly segregated.However, he frequently visited black neighborhoods, befriending black children with candy and speaking with their parents while he went on regular walks.Eventually, Einstein joined the American civil rights movement thanks to the connections he’d originally made during his walks in Princeton.Thomas Mann with Albert Einstein, Princeton 1938.He was so influential that an entire case against W.E.B. Du Bois was dropped when the judge heard that Einstein was coming to his defense.According to National Geographic, this particular strain of his activism caused the FBI to compile a 1,427 page file on him.Nehru and Indira Gandhi visit Einstein.Einstein was also a significant person when it came to the creation of the State of Israel. The Guardian recounts how Israel asked Einstein’s help in convincing India to support Israel’s statehood. One Israeli statistician at the time jokingly told Time magazine: “He might even be able to work out the mathematics of our economy and make sense out of it.”Although Einstein was unsuccessful, he corresponded with, and received a considered reply from, India’s prime minister at the time, Jawaharlal Nehru.Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s First Prime Minister.Israel did receive its statehood, and later, when the first president died in 1952, the Israeli Ambassador to the United States approached Einstein, asking if he’d be willing to serve as the president’s successor. Despite his long career of activism as a champion for social justice, Einstein declined.Einstein was quoted as saying in response to the offer: “I am deeply moved by the offer from our State of Israel, and at once saddened and ashamed that I cannot accept it.”Read another story from us: The Stolen Brain of Albert EinsteinEinstein’s political activism throughout his life allowed him to use his fame for good and to champion causes he truly believed in. However, he seems to also have known his limitations, turning down a position when he felt he was not the right person for the job despite being unquestionably great at other things.last_img read more

A hidden gem on the Central Pacific Boca Barranca

first_imgPUNTARENAS – If you’re driving through Costa Rica’s Central Pacific and blink, you might miss one of the world’s best surf spots: Boca Barranca.If you’re on your way to take the ferry across the Gulf of Nicoya and make it to the city of Puntarenas, you’ve gone too far. If you hit the Double Tree Resort in El Roble right before the city, you’ve also gone too far. If you’re at Caldera, the town right before the resort, you haven’t gone far enough.When you reach the bridge over a river between Puntarenas and Caldera, stop. You’ve made it. (Well, finish crossing the bridge, of course.) As soon as you do you’ll see the Hotel Río Mar, advertising rooms for as low as ₡12,000, just over $20, on your right. On the left you’ll see a pink house with a small sign that reads “Hotel Boca Barranca.”If you follow the dirt road that pink hotel is on, you’ll reach one of the best waves in Costa Rica. Hotel Boca Barranca Alexander Villegas / The Tico Times“Boca Barranca is the second-longest wave in Costa Rica and one of the longest in the world. It’s a left-hand break over river rocks and sand banks,” said Leo Calvo, 21, a local surfer who grew up surfing in Boca Barranca. “It’s a great wave to improve your style and surfing since you have so much time to check out your body position.”Calvo is currently ranked 412th worldwide and says Boca Barranca is a lot more calm and rural compared to other surfing hotspots in Costa Rica. The town is so tiny it seems like everyone is related to Calvo. His mother, Kattya Arrieta, 49, owns and runs Hotel Boca Barranca along with her husband. Arreita’s father, Demetrio Arrieta, runs Hotel Río Mar across the street.His mother, Feliciana Reyes, opened the first hotel in town, Chanita Hotel, but it closed after she passed away.Arrieta says that back in those days there was no bridge, and local fishermen ferried residents back and forth across the river. Then the hippies showed up in the late 60s and early 70s.“One day this gringo showed up in a sailboat and started surfing this wave,” Arrieta said. “We asked him what he was doing and he told us he was surfing.” Kattya Arrieta and some of the surfboard available at Hotel Boca Barranca (Alexander Villegas / The Tico Times)The gringo on the sailboat then showed some locals how to surf. One of them was local surf legend and pioneer Roberto Miranda. From then on, surfing took over Boca Barranca. At the time, Boca Barranca had the second-longest left-hand wave in the world.But then wavebreakers were built for the commercial port in Caldera and the wave took a hit. Now a wave in Pavones holds the title of second-longest left-hand break in the world. Calvo says the surfing culture in Puntarenas has also dipped a bit in the last few years, but whenever the swell is good, surfers from all around the world pop out of the wilderness to surf in Boca Barranca.The bridge is also a popular hangout spot for locals. It provides shade from the strong coastal sun and a nice river breeze makes it a perfect place to have your lunch. Some prefer to try and catch some fish; others hang out with beers and an assortment of smokeables. The bridge provides some much-needed shade and is a popular hangout spot for locals. (Alexander Villegas / The Tico Times)If you’re passing through Boca Barranca and there’s a nice swell going but you forgot your board, Hotel Boca Barranca offers surfboards for rent for $20 a day. They offer shortboards and longboards, but Arrieta says longboards are best for the long wave. The best months to go, Arrieta and Calvo say, are from May to November.There’s also paid parking by the beach for ₡1,500 colones. It’s best to use that option if you’re just driving through. The highway has brought more business, but more petty crime as well. Both Hotel Río Mar and Hotel Boca Barranca have security guards and it’s not advisable to be on the beach late at night.Other than that, drop on by during the day to catch one of the world’s most legendary waves.What’s your favorite hidden gem in Costa Rica?

Father of copilot rescues his own son following private plane crash in

first_imgEdwin Castro said he was sitting at his desk Monday morning when he received a call every parent dreads: His son was in danger. As Edwin learned on the phone call, Mairon Castro had been the first officer on a private flight that had crashed by the Alfredo González Flores bridge, which spans the Virilla River near Tobías Bolaños International Airport. Edwin, who works as the Chief of Operations of Metropolitan Police in San José, received permission from his bosses to join rescue efforts at the scene of the accident, he said in a statement issued by the the Public Security Ministry (MSP). There, he says he personally helped remove Mairon from the wreckage — and travelled with him to the hospital, where doctors said he had escaped the crash with nothing more than cuts and bruises. Eladio Salazar, the other pilot and the flight’s only other occupant, also survived the crash, MSP said. “When I arrived, they had just removed one pilot from the plane, and my son was still in the plane,” Edwin Castro said. “We were able to rescue him — I personally helped with the rescue — and removed him from the crash site.” “We were flown to Mexico Hospital, where he was immediately taken to the trauma floor. There, they verified that all he had suffered were cuts and bruises.” The Air Surveillance Service and National Police had been dispatched in response to the Monday morning crash of a Piper PA-34-200T Seneca II owned by Prestige Wings, a company that offers charter flights in Costa Rica. Recovery efforts following Monday’s plane crash. Via MSP.Prestige Wings could not immediately be reached for comment. Edwin Castro said his son remains under observation at the hospital, but that he may be released later Monday afternoon. “Thank God it was just a scare, and that nothing more happened,” he said.

first_img Drake performs during the “Aubrey & The Three Amigos Tour” in Toronto, Tuesday August 21, 2018. Drake has demonstrated little interest in appealing to Grammy voters since becoming a powerhouse on the music charts. Over his decade-long career he’s won only three of the golden statuettes despite a staggering 35 nominations — not counting the ones he’ll compete for this year. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Mark Blinch Follow @dfriend on Twitter.David Friend, The Canadian Press by David Friend, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 9, 2019 6:00 am PDT Drake, Mendes and other potential Canadian highlights to watch for at the Grammyscenter_img TORONTO — Drake’s tempestuous relationship with the Grammy Awards will be tested once again on Sunday as he heads into music’s biggest night with seven nominations.The Toronto rapper is this year’s most-nominated Canadian artist by far, and he’s a single accolade short of leading contender Kendrick Lamar.Still, it remains uncertain if Drake will show up to collect his potential wins, especially since he didn’t agree to perform on the broadcast, which airs Sunday at 8 p.m. on Citytv and CBS.Drake has demonstrated little interest in appealing to Grammy voters since becoming a powerhouse on the music charts. Over his decade-long career he’s won only three of the golden statuettes despite a staggering 35 nominations — not counting the ones he’ll compete for this year.He boycotted the Grammys last year by choosing not to submit his previous album “More Life,” although his 2018 double-album “Scorpion” was entered for consideration.In two categories, Drake competes with himself this year. The song “God’s Plan” is vying for best rap performance against Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode,” a track where Drake appears as a guest. He’s also nominated twice in the rap song category, where “God’s Plan” and “Sicko Mode” are among the contenders.Other Canadian musicians could grab some attention too, including best new artist winner Alessia Cara who’s slated to appear as a presenter.Shawn Mendes is booked as a performer and will compete for the first Grammys of his career. He’s up for song of the year with “In My Blood” and best pop vocal album. Songwriter Geoffrey Warburton, who hails from Mendes’ hometown of Pickering, Ont., shares the “In My Blood” nomination.Most of the awards will be handed out at the Grammys “premiere ceremony,” streamed online Sunday afternoon before the telecast.Here are some other Canadians who could grab attention:STUDIO WUNDERKIND: He’s racked up 14 Grammy nods over the past decade, but Toronto-raised producer Matthew Samuels — better known as Boi-1da — is still waiting for his first win. Already his resume screams with smash hits including Rihanna’s “Work” and Drake’s “Best I Ever Had.” He could find himself clutching some hardware on Sunday as he heads to the Grammys with six nods, three of them in the best rap song category for Drake’s “God’s Plan,” Eminem’s “Lucky You” and Jay Rock’s “Win.” He’s also up for record of the year and non-classical producer of the year, where he’s competing against Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, Linda Perry and Larry Klein.SPIRITED DEBUT: Ten members of Alberta-founded collective Young Spirit are showing up in hopes of pocketing their first Grammy. The Cree singing group is comprised of 16 people based across North America who tour pow wows and other Indigenous events. They’re nominated for the album “Mewasinsational – Cree Round Dance Songs” in the best regional roots category.REDISCOVERED VOICE: Soul singer Jackie Shane rose to prominence in the music scenes of 1960s Montreal and Toronto, but she vanished for years to live a reclusive life. York University professor Rob Bowman dug into her past for “Any Other Way,” a retrospective of Shane’s career that’s nominated for historical album. Bowman’s extensive research chronicles Shane’s colourful history as an apprentice to Little Richard and her influence as a black transgender person.KRALL SPACE: Jazz pianist Diana Krall shares two nominations with legendary 92-year-old crooner Tony Bennett for their project “Love is Here to Stay.” One of its songs, a cover of George Gershwin’s “‘S Wonderful,” is competing for best pop duo or group performance, while it’s also being considered for traditional pop vocal album.SYMPHONY OF CONTENDERS: Many of this year’s Canadian nominees are tucked in the classical categories with their international collaborators. Montreal-raised pianist Marc-Andre Hamelin is among them, nominated alongside Leif Ove Andsnes for best chamber music or small ensemble performance. Toronto-born conductor Peter Oundjian is up for his seventh Grammy nomination in the classical compendium category for the orchestral works of Vaughan Williams. Violinist Christina Day Martinson, from Saskatoon, Sask., and James Ehnes, who was raised in Brandon, Man., are nominated in the classical instrumental solo category.
