La grippe aviaire réapparaît à Hong KongUn cas de grippe aviaire a été confirmé par les autorités sanitaires de Hong Kong aujourd’hui, alors que la maladie ne s’était pas manifestée depuis 2003.La personne diagnostiquée comme porteuse de la grippe aviaire à Hong Kong est une femme âgée de 59 ans, qui semble revenir d’un voyage en Chine. Il s’agit du premier cas de grippe aviaire que connait Hong Kong depuis 2003. Le gouvernement du pays a décidé de prendre cela comme une alerte, faisant savoir aux habitants par la voix du porte-parole du ministère de la Santé qu’il existait un risque grave de contracter la maladie.Aujourd’hui dans un état grave, la malade a été testée positive à la grippe aviaire à travers le virus H5. Une enquête cherche à déterminer si elle a contracté le virus à Hong Kong même ou en Chine. Le virus H5 se transmettait jusque-là de l’animal vers l’homme, mais il pourrait avoir muté et se transmettre d’homme à homme, ce qui laisse présager un risque d’épidémie, explique l’AFP. Les autorités sanitaires ont également précisé que lors de son séjour en Chine, la patiente n’a semble-t-il pas été en contact avec de la volaille ou une exploitation agricole. Hong Kong avait été le berceau de la grippe aviaire en 2003.Le 18 novembre 2010 à 15:04 • Emmanuel Perrin
TCI Premier Responds To Beaches’ Letter Announcing Closure Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Beaches Resort does not owe TCI Gov’t; both sides want multi-million dollar dispute resolved Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands – February 27, 2018 – Five golden-coloured shovels adorned with turquoise ribbons and matching hard hats cemented a seven-year courtship which is touted to bring 317 rooms and villa residences in a new 12-storey hotel development to Grace Bay Beach.The project, with the help of Turks and Caicos Islands realtor, Walter Gardiner, in late 2017 finally received the nod of approval from the Physical Planning Department to go forward with the controversial construction and now, according to the country’s Premier the knot is tied.“The Turks and Caicos and #RitzCarlton and the Desarrollos Group have flirted for many years, and today on this beautiful Grace Bay Beach we are all at a destination wedding. A destination wedding of huge proportions, today before God and man we promise to come together to deliver a new experience for visitors to our shores, joining a family of strong members who are equally as excited,” said Hon Sharlene Robinson.Members of the former government administration were on hand too; then Premier Rufus Ewing with the Governor and Finance Minister announced the Memorandum of Understanding for the project, which at the time was projected at $224 million – that was in 2015.Premier Robinson commended the Planning Department team for its work in ushering the #DesarrollosGroup project to the point of a ground breaking ceremony. It was additionally a bonus morsel that the turning of the sand at the new home of the hotel came just days after the Turks and Caicos learned that it had secured the enviable top spot on a TripAdvisor list.“We are again on the World’s Best Beach and I say congratulations to you on being able to get a slice of the World’s Best Beach.”The Premier, Hon Sharlene Robinson in her remarks at the ground breaking on Monday afternoon explained that a new thrust for tourism in the Turks and Caicos will under-gird this and other industry partners. “And with my Government’s endorsement last week of a new tourism strategic direction, we are on the cusp of ensuring that we remain a well sought after destination, consistent with the strong TCI brand that many continue to work to maintain.”Mr. Gardiner, in an interview with the Turks and Caicos Weekly News explained once work begins, it will be a six day work week – Mondays to Saturdays from 7am to 5pm.Already 75 per cent of the residences at the property are sold, the total construction period is three years and there are projected to be two phases of construction.

Two women were seriously injured Thursday afternoon during a head-on collision in Ridgefield. A white Toyota minivan was southbound on Northeast Delfel road near Northeast 199th Street when, firefighters believe, the driver suffered a medical emergency. The van went into the northbound traffic lane and hit a Honda sedan, said Battalion Chief Tim Dawdy, spokesman for Clark County Fire & Rescue. The sedan left the roadway, coming to rest in the brush bordering Interstate 5, while the minivan kept rolling down the wrong side of the road. Joe Ploium, the driver of an oncoming pickup truck, saw the accident occur. He slowed down, giving the minivan some time to slow down, and stopped the vehicle with the front of his truckThe minivan could have otherwise kept going and hit someone else or gone off the roadway, Dawdy said, lauding the driver’s quick-thinking actions.The drivers of the minivan and sedan, both women, were transported by ambulance to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center.
Overall advertising spending was down 1.4 percent during the first half compared to the same period last year, according to figures released today by the Nielsen Company’s Monitor-Plus service.Ad spending during the period was down 8 percent for b-to-b magazines and down 3.1 percent for national magazines. Local magazines posted a slight gain of 0.3 percent over the same period in 2007.Nielsen’s Monitor-Plus figures differ slightly from the same-periodnumbers from the Publishers Information Bureau and the BIN report.According to PIB, ad revenues for the first half were down 2.8 percent.BIN (which tracks b-to-b titles) had revenue declining more than 6percent for the first half.Among the 19 media categories tracked, cable TV posted the largest ad spending gains, up 8.1 percent over the first half last year. Spot radio was the biggest decliner, down 10.1 percent. Continuing its declines, national newspapers saw ad spending fall 8.1 percent during the period. Local newspapers were only slightly better, posting a 7.3 decline.Much of the ad declines could be due, in part, to skyrocketing gas prices. The automotive ad category accounted for $5.33 billion, down 8.01 percent from $5.79 billion during the first half of 2007. The pharmaceutical (-4.76 percent), and motion picture (-4.64 percent) ad categories also saw declines.

Hester noted that, under the Texas Clean Air Act, that is a felony.Hester said Rowe and Comardelle could be sentenced to up to five years in prison and the company could face a penalty of at least $1 million.The expert also said the defendants are asking the court to tell the Harris County District Attorney’s Office they can’t get certain information they have requested.The DA has sent subpoenas to other companies that also handle hazardous chemicals to find out what they did when Harvey occurred to provide a baseline for comparison and Hester said “the subpoenas are being fought by the defense attorneys by essentially saying that that’s not appropriate information to get.”Arkema has requested a trial date for early next year and Hester thinks the company is “trying to get the criminal matter resolved because they’re also looking at other lawsuits.” The Harris County Attorney’s Office is suing Arkema on civil charges for violations of Texas environmental laws and the company also faces other lawsuits.

Apple didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.Trump told reporters Friday that his administration was days away from imposing a new round of tariffs on imports worth $200 billion, and that it could follow up with another round of tariffs on goods worth an additional $267 billion.Apple voiced its concerns about these tariffs in a public filing Friday, arguing that tariffs could make a wide range of products the company is selling to U.S. consumers more expensive. Affected products will include Apple Watch, Homepod, Apple Pencil, Air Pods, Mac Mini, cables, adapters and other accessories, according to the filing. Popular on Variety President Trump responded to Apple’s concerns about tariffs with a tweet Saturday morning, acknowledging that Apple products could get more expensive as a result of his administration’s escalating trade war with China.However, Trump suggested that there was an “easy solution” to this issue. All Apple had to do to avoid import taxes was to rebuild all of its manufacturing in the U.S. “Start building new plants now,” he tweeted. “Exciting!” “Our concern with these tariffs is that the U.S. will be hardest hit, and that will result in lower U.S. growth and competitiveness and higher prices for U.S. consumers,” the company wrote. “Because all tariffs ultimately show up as a tax on U.S. consumers, they will increase the cost of Apple products that our customers have come to rely on in their daily lives.”The suggestion that Apple could easily move all of its manufacturing to the U.S. doesn’t quite match up with the realities of the consumer electronics industry, which depends on China’s significantly lower wages as well as the country’s massive manufacturing infrastructure.Apple doesn’t actually run its own factories in China, but uses contract manufacturers like Foxconn to build the iPhone and other products. Foxconn’s largest factory is estimated to be 1.4 square miles in size, and reportedly at one point housed up to 450,000 workers, many of which live in dorms on the factory grounds. Last year, a New York University student who worked undercover in an iPhone factory reported that he made $450 per month.At the same time, Apple is already using components sourced from U.S. manufacturers in some of its products. For instance, the iPhone’s screen is made by Corning, a New York-based manufacturer specializing in touch screens and other high-tech glass products. The company said on its website that it spent over $50 billion for goods purchased from U.S. suppliers last year. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Explore further North American beaver (Castor canadensis) Credit: Wikipedia. © 2013 Phys.org Beavers: Dam good for songbirds More information: Geophysical Research Letters DOI: 10.1002/grl.50710 Most people are aware that beavers build dams. They’re responsible for river and stream blockage across many parts of North America. What has not been known, until now, is what sort of impact beaver dams and their backed up water have on carbon sequestering.Carbon of course, exists in the wood of trees. When trees die and decompose, that carbon is released into the atmosphere. But what happens when the wood of a dead tree becomes submerged beneath the water of a dam built by a beaver? That’s what Wohl set out to learn.In a field study in Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park, Wohl took samples from areas known as beaver meadows—the land that has become submerged or wet due to dams backing up flowing rivers or streams. She collected 29 sediment samples from the wet areas around 27 streams in the park. Upon analysis, the sediment turned out to be harboring 12 percent carbon by weight. This was in stark contrast to sediment samples she and colleagues collected last year in beaver meadows where the dams had been abandoned allowing the land to dry. There the samples revealed carbon content of just 3.3 percent. Wood buried beneath water and sediment decays more slowly than wood left on dry land. Thus, by building dams, beavers cause the carbon in the wood to be sequestered—at least until they abandon the dam and allow the water behind it to dry up.Wohl’s data suggests that if all the beaver meadow land now dried due to abandoned dams were still wet, the amount of additional carbon sequestered would add up to 2.7 million metric tons. Much of that carbon was released in the years shortly after the North American continent was colonized—trappers significantly reduced the population of beavers leaving millions of dams abandoned.Carbon sequestered by beaver dams hardly registers on a global scale of course—almost ten billion tons of it is added to the atmosphere worldwide each year. Nonetheless, Wohl’s study shows that at least some of those emissions can come from some surprising places. Ellen Wohl, a geology professor at Colorado State University, has published a paper in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, describing the role beavers play in climate change. In a field study she undertook, she found that carbon is sequestered when beavers build dams and is released after the beavers abandon the dams they’ve built.

After 15 years of homage to the idea that more connection is always better, Facebook seems to be waking up to the reality that quality matters and humans are not designed to be hyper-connected. “Privacy gives people the freedom to be themselves and connect more naturally, which is why we build social networks,” he wrote, suggesting of course that we have been very much not-ourselves for the past 15 years. “Humans need others to survive,” says Julianne Holt-Lunstad, a professor of psychology at Brigham Young University. “Regardless of one’s sex, country, or culture of origin, or age or economic background, social connection is crucial to human development, health, and survival.” Her research found that being disconnected posed comparable danger to smoking 15 cigarettes a day, and was more predictive of early death than the effects of air pollution or physical inactivity. Read the whole story: Quartz On Wednesday (March 6) Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg published a post outlining Facebook’s latest pivot, away from the town square model of very publicly sharing videos, pictures, and status updates with everyone, to something more akin to your living room. The question is whether trying to connect people in more intimate settings can promote actual social connection, which appears to be fraying in contemporary culture. Connecting is a biological imperative, honed over millions of years to protect us from being eaten by lions, but also to help us thrive as humans. Indeed, the absence of social connection can lead to profound loneliness, which is on the rise and deemed a public health threat by some countries. Facebook has just done an about-face. After turning the world into one big, aggressive, competitive, depressing, hyper-connected community that shares tons of information nobody needs to know about their personal lives, the social network is now emphasizing privacy.

(AP Photo/Evan Agostini, File) by David Bauder, The Associated Press Posted Sep 13, 2018 10:05 am PDT Last Updated Sep 13, 2018 at 11:40 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – Political commentator Steve Schmidt says he’ll take some inspiration from former NFL players who become television analysts when he starts appearing on Showtime’s “The Circus.”The political show is returning Sunday for a series of episodes focused on the midterm elections. Schmidt, a former political strategist who helped run John McCain’s 2008 campaign for president and worked on GOP congressional campaigns, will join regular hosts John Heilemann, Alex Wagner and Mark McKinnon the next week.He appreciates former NFL players who turn broadcasters because they’re straightforward in a way that many partisan commentators aren’t.“Troy Aikman is not going to sit there and tell you the Cowboys are having a great day when they’re losing 42-6,” he said.He hopes to use his expertise for honest assessments of why campaigns are being run like they are and whether Republicans can survive what is expected to be a rough election night.Schmidt has worked as an MSNBC commentator and been sharply critical of President Donald Trump, even recently changing his voter registration from Republican to independent. But he said he makes it a point not to criticize Trump voters.“Everyone wants to be seen, everyone wants to be heard,” he said. “And you’ve got big parts of the country that doesn’t think it has been seen or heard from for a very long time, through multiple administrations, Republican and Democratic. One thing ‘The Circus’ does well is to show people and allow them to be heard.”Schmidt doesn’t know if he’ll be on the show beyond the upcoming run of episodes, which conclude Nov. 4. He also doesn’t know which campaign he’ll be covering first.“They’re very dynamic, very nimble,” he said. “I’ll wake up in Los Angeles on the 17th and be directed from there.
