UN team hails Japans remediation efforts in Fukushimaaffected areas

The expert mission by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to review remediation efforts, which concluded today, is a follow-up to the first mission carried out in October 2011 in the wake of the incident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station in March of that year. In March 2011, a 9.0-magnitude earthquake created a tsunami that in addition to killing 20,000 people, slammed into the power station, disabling cooling systems and leading to fuel meltdowns in three of the six units. The incident was reported to be the worst nuclear accident since the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.The mission recognized the “huge effort and enormous resources” that Japan is devoting to its remediation strategies and activities, with the aim of improving living conditions for people affected by the nuclear accident and enabling evacuees to return home, the IAEA said in a news release. “Japan has done an enormous amount to reduce people’s radiation exposure in the affected areas, to work towards enabling evacuees to go back to their homes and to support local communities in overcoming economic and social disruption,” said team leader Juan Carlos Lentijo, Director of the Division of Fuel Cycle and Waste Technology in the IAEA’s Department of Nuclear Energy.He added that the team was really impressed by the involvement of a wide range of ministries, agencies and local authorities in driving these crucial remediation efforts.The 14-21 October mission, which was requested by the Japanese Government, welcomed the extensive provision of individual dosimeters so that residents can monitor their own radiation dose rates, helping to boost public confidence.“Good progress has been made in the remediation of affected farmland, and comprehensive implementation of food safety measures has protected consumers and improved consumer confidence in farm produce,” the press release noted, adding that a comprehensive programme to monitor fresh water sources such as rivers, lakes and ponds is ongoing, including extensive food monitoring of both wild and cultivated freshwater fish.The mission encouraged the Government to strengthen its efforts to explain to the public that an additional individual radiation dose of 1 millisievert per year (mSv/y), which it has announced as a long-term goal, cannot be achieved in a short time by decontamination work alone. It also encouraged the relevant institutions in Japan to assess the role that the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) could play in the independent review of the remediation activities, particularly those required for the long term. In addition, the mission encouraged the relevant organizations to conduct safety assessments of the facilities and activities for the long-term management of contaminated materials, and to allow for their independent review.The 16-person team consisted of international experts and IAEA staff working in a range of disciplines, including radiation protection, remediation technologies, waste management and stakeholder involvement. It assessed comprehensive information provided by the Japanese authorities and held discussions with the relevant institutions, including national, prefectural and local institutions. It also visited the affected areas, including several sites where remediation activities were conducted and some temporary storage sites for radioactive waste and soil, as well as a survey area for an interim storage facility, and a demonstration facility for incineration of sewage sludge.The team’s preliminary report was presented to the Government today and the final report is expected in December. read more

AJ Harris is latest player to depart Ohio State mens basketball program

OSU freshman guard A.J. Harris (12) scans the court during a game against Northern Illinois on Dec. 16 at the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo EditorWhen it rains, it pours on the Ohio State men’s basketball team.For the third time in two days, a freshman has left the program after a lone year in Columbus. On Monday, it was center Daniel Giddens. Then, forward Mickey Mitchell said goodbye a day later. Now, point guard A.J. Harris announced his intentions to continue his collegiate career elsewhere.“I have given A.J. Harris permission to seek a transfer,” said OSU coach Thad Matta in a press release.Harris appeared in all 35 games for the 2015-16 Buckeyes, starting four times. The Dayton native struggled offensively through much of the season, averaging 2.8 points per game on 32.3 percent shooting. He added a rebound and 1.7 assists per contest. He only scored in double figures once, an 11-point performance against Purdue on Jan. 21.Standing just 5-foot-9, Harris became a fan favorite in large part due to his ability to dunk. He showed off his hops on two occasions, including a powerful left-handed throwdown in the final game of OSU’s season against Florida.Matta tried to harness Harris’ energy on the occasions that he got the starting nod. He stepped in for fellow freshman guard JaQuan Lyle for the four-game stretch in January when Lyle and the team were slumping.The departure of Harris likely puts an end to the unexpected mass exodus of talent from the program. While OSU came into the year with zero rotation players expected to leave due to graduation or to enter the NBA draft, it has been quite the opposite.Harris is the fourth player to seek a transfer since the season began, with the three this week joining guard Austin Grandstaff in December. Interestingly, all four of those players were part of the 2015 recruiting class. Lyle, in fact, is the only one of the five-man recruiting class still remaining in the program.“We appreciate what A.J., Daniel and Mickey did for our program as freshmen, and we wish them well,” Matta said in the release.However, Matta can likely feel safe that the recruiting class won’t be lost completely, as Lyle, the top recruit of the group, has been vocal in his desires to remain at OSU since the season ended. Lyle has even taken it upon himself to criticize his former teammates, tweeting “Grass ain’t always greener on the other side” on Tuesday in reference to Giddens and Mitchell.Another player, redshirt sophomore center Trevor Thompson, has temporarily left the team to enter the NBA draft. But due to rules in place beginning this year, a player is allowed to keep all of his NCAA eligibility as long as he doesn’t hire an agent. Therefore, it is probable that Thompson will be wearing scarlet and gray again for the 2016-17 season. read more

Student union president causes outrage after vowing to take down war memorial

She wrote: “ONE OF THE WOMEN JUST SAID ‘it’s nearly armistice day so are we covering up this tapestry??’ AND HOLY S—. F— YES. GRL PWR.” Emily Dawes, the Student Union President, said the mural was too white and male She said she wanted to remove the mural Conor Burns, MP for Bournemouth West, added: “Pathetic. She would be better going to the Hartley Library and reading some history. She could read of the sacrifice that allows such fatuous virtue signalling today.”The Southampton University Conservative Association labelled her comments “unacceptable,” tweeting: “Our union president promising to vandalise a memorial to those who served in the Great War, near the centenary of the end of the Great War. This is unacceptable.” “I never meant the disrespect to anyone past, present and future. I had no intention of the tweet being taken literally, and upon reflection have realised how inappropriate it was.”My intention was to promote strong, female leadership and not the eradication and disrespect of history. I do not believe that to make progress in future, we should look to erase the past.” Emily Dawes, the Student Union President, said the mural was too white and male She said she wanted to remove the mural A spokesman for the University of Southampton said: “The comments made by the students’ union president regarding the Rothenstein Mural are not shared by the University of Southampton and do not represent the views of the university community.”We are very proud to display the mural, painted in 1916, which serves as a memorial to all members of British universities who served in the Great War (World War I).”A spokesman for The Royal British Legion said: “We believe the unique contribution of our Armed Forces should be remembered today, tomorrow and forever, however we respect the right of others to express their opinions within the law. Our Armed Forces community, past and present, have made sacrifices in defence of the freedoms we have today, including the freedom of speech.”Ms Dawes has since apologised, and said in a statement: “Firstly, and most importantly, I would like to apologise for the offense and upset I have caused with what I have said. A Student Union President has caused outrage after she vowed to remove a mural commemorating students who died in World War One because it contains only white men. Emily Dawes, who leads the University of Southampton Student Union was widely condemned after tweeting: “Mark my words – we’re taking down the mural of white men in the uni Senate room, even if I have to paint over it myself.”The Rothenstein memorial, to which she refers, depicts an unnamed student receiving a degree from the Chancellor of the University of Cambridge, representing all the young men who lost their lives in the war and were unable to complete or collect their degrees.It was painted in 1916 by Sir William Rothenstein, former Principal of the Royal College of Art, and presented to the University of Southampton in 1959, by the artist’s son, Sir John Rothenstein.It features many key academics from the era of the Great War, including vice-chancellors and chancellors, and the then poet laureate Robert Bridges, and other panels of the mural feature young war poets who lost their lives in battle.It is unclear whether she was aware of the significance of the memorial, although she had tweeted linking it to Armistice Day.

The privately educated physics graduate has been labelled “the epitome of stupid” by angered commentators as the university condemned her statements.Ms Dawes attended the £5,000-a-term Northwood College for Girls, according to her LinkedIn page, and has said her favourite thing about Southampton is the “pretty dope” vegan food.Southampton Itchen MP Royston Smith, who served in the RAF for 10 years, said her comments were “disappointing.”He told the Daily Mail: “With freedom comes responsibility, and considering the President of the SU holds a position of authority she has clearly overstepped the mark.”I hope she will reflect on what she has said and realise it has been conducted in poor taste. Those who know the history of our island are fully aware and appreciate the involvement of black and Asian soldiers against tyranny.” pic.twitter.com/uyFMNjWOon— Emily, Union Pres (@SotonPres) October 25, 2018 read more

As such, the Labour Minister and other officials will try to resolve the issues in a meeting at the Labour Department’s Board Room today (Friday) at 14:00h between the Guyana Teachers’ Union and the Education Ministry.According to a press statement, the Education Ministry’s application was in keeping with the provisions of an extant Collective Labour Agreement. However, it is unclear whether or not GTU will present itself at this latest meeting, given that talks broke down at the two previous meetings. Contacted last Thursday evening, GTU President Mark Lyte indicated that the GTU might not be attending this afternoon’s meeting.“We are not going through any talks, because as far as we are concerned, conciliation has taken place already; the Ministry [of Labour’s] presence was there in the last two meetings,” he stressed.Additionally, Lyte remarked that from his standpoint, he wasn’t even formally invited to the meeting.INews understands that, under conciliation, Minister with responsibility for Labour, Keith Scott, will attempt to act as a mediator to bring resolution to the matter.Conciliation is reportedly different from arbitration in that an arbitrator would be a neutral person appointed by the minister, rather than the minister himself trying to solve the impasse.In the meanwhile, GTU has been mobilising teachers across various locations, including Georgetown, Bartica, Linden, Berbice and Essequibo. read more

The Pogo is a concept breakaway connector that could save your phone

first_imgHeadphone cables have sent many a smartphone tumbling down to its death. They’re just always in the way and incredibly easy to catch on a chair or your own fumbling hand. One Jon Patterson has an idea that could change all that, and he calls it The Pogo. It’s a simple break-away headphone plug that keeps your phone from going wherever the cable does.You would plug The Pogo into a phone, then your headphones into that. The Pogo is so named because it utilizes four pogo pins to route the audio from the phone to the headphones. The contraption is held together with a neodymium magnet, which keeps the pogo pins secure.The Pogo can spin around, and is strong enough (in theory) to hold a phone up vertically. But should is be tugged at an angle, it immediately breaks connection and falls off, leaving the phone stationary. It’s kind of like Apple’s MagSafe power cable, but for headphones. The concept device also has a connector on the side, in addition to the one at the end. This allows for it to attach more comfortably depending on how the phone is stored.You wouldn’t need anything special to make The Pogo work with your device. If it has a 3.5mm headphone jack, The Pogo works. Frankly, it’s about time pogo pins were useful for something. Seldom does a device sporting them even have the necessary accessories.This connector doesn’t exist yet, but Patterson is seeking funding to get a working prototype built. Maybe it’ll be on Kickstarter before you know it. Seems like everything else is.last_img read more

Series of Unfortunate Events gets first trailer

first_imgStay on target You probably shouldn’t be looking forward to Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, if only because the story of the three Baudelaire orphans will depress you. But if you are, you got your first look this week.Netflix released its first teaser trailer for the series, based on the popular young adult books by Daniel Handler, better known as Lemony Snicket, along with an appropriate release date.The video doesn’t show much, just a glimpse of a set and a monologue by Lemony Snicket himself (played by Patrick Warburton). Fans of the books will recognize the language and the odd intricacies of the dialogue–the anecdotes that define the meaning of words, the melancholy descriptions, the fourth wall breaking style of it all–as it’s reminiscent of Snicket’s original series.We even get a tease for Neil Patrick Harris’ Count Olaf, who will serve as the series’ villain, although he only appears offscreen.And of course, because we wouldn’t have it any other way, the release date is January 13, 2017–or Friday the 13th.The series tells the tale of Violet, Klaus, and Sunny, who are three orphans and the tragedies that befall their lives. Specifically, the children are passed around from relative to relative as the aforementioned Count Olaf will stop at nothing to gain access to their inheritance and they learn about a conspiracy in relation to their parents’ deaths.It doesn’t sound very kid-friendly, but then again, Snicket warned you what you were getting into.As fans of the books when they first came out that were disappointed with the 2004 film starring Jim Carrey, we couldn’t be more excited. Things seem harmonious, which in this case means something that is marked by agreement in feeling, attitude, or action. ‘Seinfeld’ Is Coming to Netflix in 2021What to Stream on Netflix This Weekend last_img read more

Sensex gains 135 points Maruti Suzuki shares rise on madeinIndia Baleno launch

first_imgIndian stock markets ended the day with gains despite a weak opening tracking global cues. The BSE S&P Sensex closed at 24,794, up 135 points, or 0.55 percent, while the NSE Nifty settled at 7,532, with a gain of 47 points, or 0.62 percent.Maruti Suzuki India Ltd (MSIL) was the top Sensex gainer on a day when the company announced the launch of the made-in-India Baleno in Japan. The stock gained four percent to close at Rs 3,600. The company said that it will be launching the car in over 100 countries.Other Sensex gainers were Larsen & Toubro, Hindustan Unilever and ONGC.Stock of engineering firm Crompton Greaves soared almost nine percent after the company announced the sale of its overseas transmission and distribution business for about Rs 844 crore to First Reserve International, a U.S. private equity fund.On the NSE, Yes Bank, Maruti Suzuki and Tech Mahindra were the top gainers, while metal and oil stocks such as Vedanta, BPCL and Hindalco declined. The weak opening on Indian bourses was on expected lines, given the decline in U.S. stock markets on Tuesday and a weak opening in Asian markets on Wednesday on account of poor China trade data.”Indian markets are expected to open in the red tracking the SGX Nifty and weak Asian cues. US markets closed lower after five consecutive sessions of gains, after NYMEX crude oil prices dropped ~4%. Weak Chinese trade data also dampened sentiment as fears of an economic slowdown heightened,” brokerage Angel Broking said in a pre-opening note on Wednesday.”Chinese exports tumbled 25.4% year-over-year in February, the biggest fall since May 2009, as against economist forecasts of a drop of 15% and an 11.2% decline in January,” it added.Jindal Steel & Power Ltd (JSPL) lost more than seven percent on reports that the a group of foreign lenders were contemplating recalling loans up to $550 million after it failed to service a $25 million loan taken from a Japanese bank.

Letter Nationalism is anathema to Christian faith

Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email By: Yonat Shimron YonatShimron Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,(RNS) — A letter signed by nearly 30 leading theologians in the liberal Catholic journal Commonweal forcefully rejects any link between nationalism and Christianity and asserts that such a connection can “threaten the integrity of Christian faith.”The letter, published Monday (Aug. 19), is signed by leading Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox theologians and public intellectuals. They include Cornel West, Miroslav Volf, Stanley Hauerwas, the Rev. Greg Boyle, Massimo Faggioli, Anthea Butler and Eddie S. Glaude Jr.Drawing parallels with the 1930s when many serious Christian thinkers in Germany believed they could manage an alliance with nationalism that led to the emergence of Nazism, the letter rejects any attempt to co-opt American politics with the Christian faith.“Cities, states, and nations have borders; the church never does,” the letter declares. “If the church is not ethnically plural, it is not the church, which requires a diversity of tongues out of obedience to the Lord.”The letter follows a massacre in which a white supremacist, seeking to halt a “Hispanic invasion” of Texas, killed 22 people in El Paso earlier this month.The letter explicitly rejects racism as well as xenophobia related to refugees and migrants. “A true culture of life welcomes the stranger, embraces the orphan, and binds the wounds of all who are our neighbor — all who lie lifeless on the road, as the pious walk silently past.”Melody Stout, from left, Hannah Payan, Aaliyah Alba, Sherie Gramlich and Laura Barrios comfort each other during a vigil for victims of the shooting Saturday, Aug. 3, 2019, in El Paso, Texas. A young gunman opened fire in an El Paso, Texas, shopping area during the busy back-to-school season, leaving multiple people dead and more than two dozen injured. (AP Photo/John Locher)In the wake of the El Paso shooting, many conservative outlets issued condemnations of nationalism. The National Review referred to white supremacy as an “evil” ideology that must be crushed. The Washington Examiner called on Trump “to name and condemn the evil of white nationalism.”The Commonweal letter was a more direct response to a letter signed by another group of Christians in the conservative  journal First Things. The First Things letter, published in March, embraced what it called “the new nationalism” and made a case for standing with American workers over and against others. The letter denounced what it called a “soulless society of individual affluence” and said that conservatives had “bowed to a poisonous and censorious multiculturalism.”“In recent years, some have argued for immigration by saying that working-class Americans are less hard-working, less fertile, in some sense less worthy than potential immigrants,” the First Things letter read. “We oppose attempts to displace American citizens. Advancing the common good requires standing with, rather than abandoning, our countrymen. They are our fellow citizens, not interchangeable economic units. And as Americans we owe each other a distinct allegiance and must put each other first.”The First Things letter was signed by a smaller group of 15 people including conservative pundit Rod Dreher and sociologist Mark Regnerus.Anthea Butler, an associate professor of religion and Africana studies at the University of Pennsylvania, said she was happy to sign the Commonweal letter.“It’s a pushback against what was in First Things, which was basically an acquiescence to white supremacy,” she said. “It’s time to put a marker down.”The Commonweal letter was drafted by David Albertson, religion professor at the University of Southern California and Jason Blakely, a political scientist at Pepperdine University.A HuffPost/YouGov poll published last week found that more Americans now describe “white nationalism” as a serious threat to the United States. The poll found that 56% of Americans say that white nationalism poses a somewhat or very serious threat to the U.S., up from the 46% who said the same last August. President Trump condemned “racism, bigotry and white supremacy” in a public comment following the El Paso shooting, even as he has repeatedly labeled himself a “nationalist” and his administration has cracked down on immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers.

first_imgBy Abhinav Ramnarayan and Virginia FurnessFrance and Cyprus took full advantage of a market supercharged by expectations of more monetary stimulus from the European Central Bank to print syndicated bonds on Tuesday.France had garnered a maximum of €33.5 billion of demand for a €7 billion 30-year bond sale, a lead manager told Reuters, before pricing the deal at seven basis points over its outstanding 2048 bonds.Cyprus too took full advantage of the strong bid for bonds to price its longest ever issue, a €1 billion 15-year which came at 175 basis points over mid-swaps in a further sign of how far the country has come since it returned to the capital markets in 2014, International Financing Review reported.“This is a powerful indication of trust in the stability and prospects of our country,” Finance Minister Harris Georgiades said on Twitter.Recent bond sales by euro zone sovereigns have been well-subscribed, and borrowing costs have fallen.French borrowing costs for example are near the lowest levels in well over two years.“There is a lot of demand across the board: we saw Italy’s 30-year get €41 billion of orders, and the French spread is quite wide after the ‘yellow vest’ protests,” DZ Bank strategist Daniel Lenz said, referring to the protests in France against President Emmanuel Macron’s policies.The goodwill also spilled over into Spanish government bonds, the yields on which were also lower on the day, with its 30-year down three basis points at 2.443 per cent.Italian government bond yields meanwhile rose across the board on Tuesday after data showed industrial orders in the euro zone’s third-largest economy dropped 5.3 per cent in December over the same month in 2017.The data served as the latest reminder of the weak outlook for the Italian economy, ending a rally in prices sparked by expectations for a new round of cheap multi-year loans for banks by the ECB.As Italian bonds came under renewed selling pressure, safer German 10-year bond yields headed back towards their lowest levels since October 2016 touching 0.084 per cent before pulling back to 0.106 per cent.But Bouvet said the data could not be seen in isolation.“The German equivalent also declined significantly in December and this will likely trigger some ECB easing and this could have the opposite impact on markets on tightening the Italian spread,” he said.European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker was quoted as saying he does not expect additional import tariffs on European cars for the time being, yet concerns remain high as a confidential Commerce Department report was due to be sent to Donald Trump on Sunday.The report is widely expected to clear the way for the US president to threaten tariffs on imported autos and auto parts by designating the imports a national security threat.You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityReassurance for your refugeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
