Afghanistan UN mission launches countdown to International Peace Day

12 August 2008The top United Nations envoy to Afghanistan today joined graduating students from Kabul’s Polytechnic to launch a countdown to the annual International Peace Day intended to be marked by a global ceasefire on 21 September. “Peace is Afghanistan’s greatest need and it is the United Nations’ highest calling. Peace is the bedrock from which we can encourage development, defend human rights and support progress,” Kai Eide, the head of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), said today.Mr. Eide was addressing students at the Polytechnic, which is the first higher education institution in the country to offer courses in peacebuilding and conflict resolution.Launching the 40-day countdown, the envoy said that last year International Peace Day enabled the UN and Afghans to vaccinate thousands of children against disease, deliver hundreds of tons of life-saving food supplies, and to reach out to communities in previously insecure areas.“Let us send a message to those who are still fighting that the time for conflict must come to an end, let us give a voice to all those Afghans whose lives continue to be blighted by the shadow of fear and violence that they are not alone,” he said.“Over the next 40 days we want to work closely with grassroots communities, religious leaders, civil society organisations and Afghans from all walks of life to build a momentum for peace that reaches every corner of Afghanistan,” he added. read more

EPA test results reveal Colorado spills toxic stew as thousands of other

by Matthew Brown, Michael Biesecker And P. Solomon Banda, The Associated Press Posted Aug 12, 2015 8:35 pm MDT Last Updated Aug 13, 2015 at 6:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email EPA test results reveal Colorado spill’s toxic stew as thousands of other abandoned mines leak SILVERTON, Colo. – It will take many years and many millions of dollars simply to manage and not even remove the toxic wastewater from an abandoned mine that unleashed a 100-mile-long torrent of heavy metals into Western rivers and has likely reached Lake Powell, experts said Thursday.Plugging Colorado’s Gold King Mine could simply lead to an eventual explosion of poisonous water elsewhere, so the safest solution, they say, would be to install a treatment plant that would indefinitely clean the water from Gold King and three other nearby mines. It would cost millions of dollars, and do nothing to contain the thousands of other toxic streams that are a permanent legacy of mining across the nation.Federal authorities first suggested a treatment plant for Gold King more than a decade ago, but local officials and owners of a nearby mine were reluctant to embrace a federally-sponsored cleanup.“They have been not pursuing the obvious solution,” said Rob Robinson, a retired abandoned mines cleanup co-ordinator for the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. “My hope is this has embarrassed the hell out of them and they’re going to finally take it seriously.”The Gold King delay illustrates a problem dwarfing the 3 million-gallon waste plume accidentally released by contractors working for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency: There are about 500,000 abandoned mines nationwide, and only a fraction have been dealt with, despite decades of effort.EPA has estimated the cost of cleaning up abandoned mines nationwide, not including coal mines, at between $20 billion and $54 billion.Many of the abandoned mines — including in the Silverton area where Gold King is located — were developed after an 1872 federal mining law encouraged development and allowed people to lay claim to minerals beneath public lands.They’ve since become legacies of the industry’s boom-bust cycles, in which companies fold up operations when metals prices fall, leaving behind sources of toxic wastewater that chronically leave rivers barren and taint drinking water supplies.Of the abandoned mines in the U.S., more than 48,000 had been inventoried through the BLM’s Abandoned Mine Lands program, which began after new federal laws focused on environmental protection in the 1960s, 1970s and early 1980s.But only about one in five of the inventoried mines is being cleaned up or requires no more action. More than 38,000 await further analysis or work, according to the bureau.Under the federal Clean Water Act, the mine owner is supposed to control discharges, but Gold King’s landowner, Todd Hennis, is not considered legally responsible for the cleanup because the mine stopped operating in 1923, long before the modern era of environmental protection.“A lot of these are Mom and Pops, they’ve inherited the property or they bought it years ago before the environmental laws were passed, and they just don’t have the resources,” said Doug Jamison, with the hazardous materials division at Colorado’s state health department.In Colorado alone, there are hundreds, possibly thousands of abandoned mines discharging acid rock drainage, Jamison said. The potent stew of heavy metals accumulates as chemical reactions brew up sulfuric acid at concentrations high enough to dissolve steel, and leach poisons down mountainsides and into groundwater decades after mines close.The EPA announced Thursday that surface-water testing in Colorado revealed very high levels of lead, arsenic, cadmium and other heavy metals in the middle of the sickly yellow plume released on Aug. 5. These metals far exceeded government exposure limits for aquatic life and humans in the hours after the spill.The EPA said its analysis shows the heavy metals quickly returned to “pre-event levels” once the plume passed through the area it tested, on the Animas River between Silverton and the municipal water intake for Durango, a downstream city of 16,000.Utah officials said Thursday that the plume had likely reached Lake Powell, although it has been diluted on the 300-mile journey to the reservoir and lost the bright yellow colour seen closer to the site. Authorities could not immediately confirm the presence of heavy metals and other contaminants close to the lake and said tests on Utah river water suggest the spill has dissipated enough that the water is safe to drink and officials aren’t expecting to see fish dying off at the lake.The state continued to warn people not to use it for irrigation or livestock water, however, Utah Department of Environmental Quality spokeswoman Donna Spangler.EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy, who took full responsibility and promised that the agency will pay for any damage, said Thursday that these results show the river is “restoring itself.” She also announced that the EPA has released $500,000 to help supply clean water for crop irrigation and livestock in northwestern New Mexico.Absent technological breakthroughs, the EPA expects to be treating water at abandoned mines for generations.“Mine sites continually produce more waste,” said John Hillenbrand, remedial project manager with the EPA’s Superfund program in California.California’s 150-year-old Iron Mountain mine discharged six tons of toxic sludge a day before a clean-up by the EPA, which declared it a Superfund site in 1983, 20 years after it shut down. The sludge caused massive fish kills in the Sacramento River system, which supplies a fifth of the state’s water, more than 30 times. Authorities now spend $5 million a year to remove poisons, and expects to keep at it forever.At Montana’s Berkeley Pit, meanwhile, an acid lake created when Atlantic Richfield Co. turned off the pumps at its copper mine in 1982 grows by millions of gallons every day. The EPA made it a Superfund site, too, planning to keep acid spills from Butte Valley waterways. Meanwhile, the notorious pit grows in infamy: In 1995, an entire flock of migrating snow geese perished after setting down in the water.While active mines are regulated under existing law, inactive mines like Gold King are not, and viable parties are rarely available to conduct cleanup or provide the necessary resources. Non-profit groups and other so-called Good Samaritans that might try such work on their own are hobbled by federal laws that render them liable for whatever pollution comes out.Costs also are a major hurdle: Robinson, the former BLM official, said a treatment plant capable of cleaning up the stream of toxins spewing from Gold King and other nearby mines into the Animas River basin would take up to $5 million to build, and much more to operate.“We’re now 25 years down the road of trying to get the Animas cleaned up,” he said. “It’s time to stop dinking around with the problem and get on with it.”The EPA tested for 24 metals in the spill; One of the most dangerous, lead, was found below Silverton’s 14th Street bridge at more than 200 times higher than the acute exposure limit for aquatic life, and 3,580 times higher than federal standards for human drinking water. Levels of arsenic were more than 24 times the exposure limit for fish and 823 times the level for human ingestion. Cadmium was found at more than six times the aquatic limit, 33 times that for humans.The plume has since dissipated, its heavy metals settling into riverbeds, during the waste’s 300-mile journey toward Lake Powell, where the flow joins the Colorado River that supplies water to the Southwest. McCarthy promised a long-term plan to address riverbed contamination, but offered no specifics. The EPA also promised free water testing for homeowners with wells close to the river, but it’s unclear how long that offer stands.___Associated Press writers Ellen Knickmeyer in San Francisco, Ivan Moreno in Denver and Lindsay Whitehurst in Salt Lake City contributed to this story. Biesecker reported from Washington, D.C.; Brown from Billings, Montana; and Banda from Silverton, Colorado. Water flows down Cement Creek just below the site of the blowout at the Gold King mine which triggered a major spill of toxic wastewater, outside Silverton, Colo., Thursday, Aug. 13, 2015. It will take years, if not decades, and many millions of dollars to clean up and manage the toxic wastewater from a this Colorado mine that unleashed a 100-mile-long torrent of heavy metals, affecting the livelihoods of residents in three states, according to some experts.

A onetime world champion Irish prodigys descent into hell and back

Kate Veale of West Waterford AC pictured competing at Irish Life Health National Senior Indoor Championships. Image: Oisin Keniry/INPHO 60,824 Views Short URL Sunday 24 Mar 2019, 10:00 AM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article He’d be getting up at 8am on a Sunday morning to go off and do 25-mile runs, it was just normal. Just going to races and all that, it was always around me I suppose. It’s gas having that in the house, it’s not like it was pushed on you, it was just what you wanted to do. You just follow on.”It soon became apparent that like her father, Veale had a passion for running. She took up cross country in her school, St Augustine’s College, and quickly excelled. “My first major race was a cross-country race in Paris in 2005 that I won,” she recalls. “It was then that I said ‘I really want to have a proper go at this and get to an Olympics.’”However, fate would take Veale in a different direction ultimately.“It was the East Munster’s or something. Someone said: ‘Can you just step in there for the walk for points with the school?’ My main event really was the 1500 on the track. I stepped in for the walk. I got a bit of flair for the technique. I started training. So I was doing both [racewalking and cross country]. At U18, I won the national cross country and I went to the European Junior Cross Country in 2011.“At the time, I was trying to do both and then I made a decision to go with walking — I had more opportunities and stuff, so I decided then to make a proper go of it.”Around the time of the 2004 Olympics, Veale was left feeling inspired after Irish racewalking star Rob Heffernan paid a visit to her club. And having crossed paths with an elite athlete, Veale then endeavoured to become one.“I was a bit of a freak,” she says of her early school days. “I was starting to get serious with running and I was kind of mature for my age. I had this mindset that I was different from the rest of the people in my class. The likes of my parents and coaches would have seen that I was different. I would have done extra training and I would have been very particular about everything.“Before my time, I was looking up stuff about the science [behind sport]. I suppose some people might have thought I was a bit of a weirdo.” Olive Loughnane trained with a young Veale. Source: Morgan Treacy/INPHOIt was fourth year of secondary school when she felt racewalking started to get really serious. By then, Veale was being coached by Jamie Costin, spending considerable time away from school and even attending a training camp in Spain with the likes of Heffernan and Olive Loughnane.“Just seeing them, I really wanted to be one of them,” Veale recalls. “I was trying to be one of them, but it was before my time. I was trying to push my body. Back then, I was naive. I was on an upward slope, I was getting PBs all the time, improving all the time. I was doing everything right, I was in my bubble and this was my life, and this was all I wanted.“Fourth year, I would have gone to Russia, to European Youths and the Youth Olympics. I was getting all the national records, 15 up to junior, same with all the school records. Every time I went out, I was beating my own records. I was improving all the time. In fifth year, I would have won the World Youths really convincingly. It was funny, I finished that race and I wanted in my age to be the best in the world and I just felt so much confidence, because it was quite easy.“I would have felt I could have taken on anyone at that stage. But people would have said it and I would have believed it — I’d be like ‘I’m going to get an Olympic medal. I’m going to do this. It’s just going to improve, it’s going to get better, I’m so excited.’”Veale also excelled academically. She can’t remember her exact results, but the talented athlete received mostly As and got close to 600 points in the Leaving Cert.I was a perfectionist and liked people being like: ‘Oh, Kate’s this and Kate’s that’ — thinking that I could do it all.”It felt as if Veale’s meteoric rise would never abate, but she was about to come cruelly crashing down to earth.“That year, things started changing. I got a bit of a hip injury. It was the first time I had anything major. I would have had niggles, but it was the first time I started not improving and not being able to do the training and that was frustrating me.“When I tried to come back, my coach, who was fantastic, was being so careful with me and I wasn’t even listening to him. I would say ‘I’m after missing training the last few days, so I’m just going to do extra training now.’ It was never getting better, it was a vicious cycle. The more training I was doing, the worse I was getting.“I went to the Youth World Cup, I finished sixth and it was kind of like: ‘Aw look, that’s just the injury, I’ll get over it and I’ll come back with World Juniors.’“I had access to Rob and Olive and everyone, but if things weren’t going well, I wouldn’t admit it to anyone. I was faking things: ‘It’s fine, I’ll be able to do it.’ I wouldn’t turn to anyone and was thinking it would always be okay. I did [the World Juniors] race and finished 17th, coming from first the year before, to being lapped and [getting a time] that I would have easily beaten 12 months previously.”Having started out with physical issues, Veale’s problems primarily became psychological thereafter.I didn’t want to be anything other than an athlete and when I wasn’t, I felt so [lacking in identity],” she explains. “I was known as the athlete in town. Everyone knew of me around the place. I kind of liked that and I wanted to be that. When I finished 17th, then it was more mentally [I was affected], because I knew I wasn’t improving.“The training got worse, and I kind of just hated the sport then, because I had a bad attitude to it, it was very black and white. If I can’t win and I can’t be the best, I’m not doing this.“Mentally, it was just draining, and I suppose I was kind of burnt out. I didn’t have anyone pushing me. Someone said to me, ‘you are burnt out’ and they would have asked about my training or coach or family. It was nothing to do with any of them, it was me.”Having become disillusioned, Veale stopped competing entirely. She went to Dublin City University to study Sports Science and Health in what was the beginning of a hugely difficult and challenging time in her life. The former starlet could only watch on as many of those she had competed against continued to make waves, competing in the Olympics and other illustrious events.“I felt like a failure,” she says. “So many people had invested so much effort and I felt like I’d let them down, thinking: ‘I should be that. I could be that.’” Brian Gregan, Under 23 400m, Derval O’Rourke, 100m Hurdles, European Silver Medalist and Kate Veale, World Youth 5Km Walk Champion pictured in 2011. Source: Morgan Treacy/INPHOAs she struggled to leave her sporting past behind, Veale’s mental health deteriorated.“That was the hard thing back then — it wasn’t me. People were worried about me, my family, my friends, they knew I was different. I was absolutely broken… At the time, you think you’re the only one going through it.“I can’t even count how many people and how many different therapies and treatments I’ve been through. One of them eventually has to click I suppose. I’ve been through enough.“People would think: ‘Oh, that’s it for me.’ It was such a rollercoaster. All the time, two steps forward, two steps back. It was so up and down and I was not giving up, even though there’d be days where you’re thinking: ‘My biology or genetics is just like this now, and I can’t do anything about it. This is just me and I won’t be able to be happy, I suppose.’  The funny thing is people don’t even know and they’d never think it about me. They were always like: ‘How do you do it all? I wouldn’t have the [motivation] the way you have.’ Back then, people knew me as the athlete and the person that trained all the time. They’d see me out in any type of weather and not out drinking, so I was kind of different. I wanted to be that person: ‘I’m tough, I’m strong.’ Holding up this ego or something.“So when the wheels started to come off, it was a big downward spiral. But you don’t give into it. I thought: ‘I’m mentally strong.’ My mind is my greatest advantage and my greatest disadvantage in a sense. I feel I got to the absolute top and I hit rock bottom.“It got so bad. I was still lying to people, but they knew. There had to be intervention even though I was like: ‘No, it’s fine.’ It actually got to a stage where I gave into it and I was like: ‘Yeah, I do need this and I do need help.’“It was going on for so long and I was hiding it and I was so good at hiding it. I put on this brave face — I’m just doing this and pretending to my coach, and my coach even knew.“It was funny, I never would cry ever. It was such a difficult moment — I remember being out with my coach training. He knew [something was wrong from] the way I was training. I just stopped training and started crying, and he gave me a hug. I was so embarrassed because: ‘I’m tough and I’m able to [deal with adversity].’ It was me that drove me to have this burnout. It was: ‘I can’t be feeling like this. I’m not this person, just get on with it’– that old-school mentality. ‘Stop being weak. Stop being such a sissy.’It’s actually the first time I’ve said it out properly as well, but if I can help one person [it will be worth it]. My friends at home even, if they see this, they’ll be like: ‘Really?’ Because I would have lied to them. They would have thought I was the strongest of the group or whatever.“It was so bad that I remember my mam making me go to a counsellor. I went into them and they did an assessment with me. It was: ‘Oh, we’re sending you straight to hospital.’ I was like: ‘What? I thought it wasn’t that bad.’ And that’s how bad it got.“I lied to people at home telling them I was at college. Because it was like: ‘No one can know I’m in here.’ You’re so ashamed.“After that, I came out of there and it still wasn’t right. They wanted to admit me again. It’s not a six-week programme and you’re better. It’s something you have to work on all the time.” Kate Veale pictured in 2011 at the European Cross Country Championships. Source: Sasa Pahic SzaboVeale’s depression was at its most intense between 2012 and 2014. Having sought professional help, the youngster gradually started to feel better to the extent that she decided to return to training, but fate intervened again.“I started coming back, doing little bits in the gym and I was out running and stuff. I had only done about 5k and I was getting sick after sessions. ‘What the hell?’ I was like: ‘It must be a fever.’ Then I found out I was pregnant.“I was thinking: ‘How can I deal with this? I can’t look after myself.’“I had a baby and people would have thought: ‘Oh, sure she won’t finish college now and she won’t get back into athletics. It was like: ‘No.’”Rather than ending her sporting ambitions, the birth of Fianna in 2015 ultimately made Veale more determined to succeed.“It made me accepting and it made me better myself and it made me strong. I thought: ‘I’m actually going to be a better person.’ “It was kind of a moment that made me… People say: ‘You have a kid now, it’s different.’ Yeah, it’s different for me, but does it mean I’m not going to the Olympics?It’s funny because I see that and I want to show [my daughter] what I can do. Having an unplanned pregnancy — sometimes things are just meant to be in your life. You deal with it and you become a better person and your life is better for it.” Her early attempts at a return in 2016 were tentative.“I came back, just doing a bit of running for fun. I thought: ‘Do you know what? I’m going to do a road race. And if I do it in this time, so what?’ I trained with my dad. It was lovely. I did the Dublin Marathon with him. I got that love of sport back.“I didn’t really commit to any proper training. I was just enjoying it and doing bits and pieces. Last year, I came back and was doing a lot of my own stuff. I didn’t want coaching, because I felt really bad with someone putting work into me again when I’m not at the top. I felt ‘I’m not worthy to be getting a coach. I’m not going to be winning a medal, I’ll do my own coaching.’” Brendan Boyce helped convince Veale to link up with a coach after her return to racewalking. Source: Ian MacNicol/INPHOHowever, Veale got chatting to Irish Olympian Brendan Boyce, who convinced her to appoint a coach. So well over a decade on from that fateful first meeting in the local club in Waterford, Heffernan agreed to link up with the rejuvenated racewalker.“I just appreciate what he’s doing, because never mind the athletes not getting any money, he’s not getting anything and I know there’s a coach over in China getting nearly a million a year and there are other coaches on proper salaries. For him to put the effort in and not be getting anything back, it’s [admirable]. He has the faith in me and he actually said: ‘No, you can do this and your journey is going to be good and you are going to be great again.’“I’ve learned so much from him. When we’re not training, then we chill. It’s about recovery.“Before I’d be switched on all the time and so particular about everything. But I was freaking out about it and thinking it was a disaster.I would have been very black and white before, things had to be perfect. Now it’s like: ‘There are going to be rough days and awful times.’“The Olympic qualifications came out last week and I was freaking out and Rob says: ‘Calm down, all you can do is get out, do this session and walk today.’”And Veale has made encouraging progress since returning, winning gold at the National 20k Championships last December among other impressive feats.At the moment, she is balancing life as an athlete with primary school teaching.“I think no matter what field you’re in: work, music or art, you can learn something from everybody. The kids say stuff and you learn from it. The other day, they were asked: ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ A load of them were saying soccer players. One of them just said: ‘I just want a simple life, because that’s a happy life.’ It was like: ‘My God.’”However, Veale will soon put everything else aside and switch to full-time training. Events such as the European Cup and the World University Games are on the horizon, while the start of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics is less than 500 days away. To secure qualification, Veale will need to be ranked among the world’s top 60. I’m definitely not where I was before and where I want to be,” she says. “I still have a hip issue going on that I had before, so that’s probably my major concern at the moment, getting that right. That’s a big thing for me. When I got pregnant, it made it worse again. It’s just one of those things I have to manage.“Winning a national title, it’s brilliant, you can never take it for granted. But I want to see the bigger picture. I don’t want to just win a national title. The Olympics are the pinnacle of what we’re all aiming for next year. In the meantime, we have a lot of big races coming up before then.“Rob was 35 winning World Championships. Olive Loughnane was 31 at her best when she won in Berlin. So I am lucky that I have time on my side.”   Veale is now being coached by Olympic medallist Rob Heffernan. Source: Oisin Keniry/INPHOThe life of an elite athlete is rarely straightforward though. To pursue her dream, Veale needs to make a number of sacrifices and must also rely heavily on the support of others.“I still live with my parents. Athletics isn’t a sport where you’re going to get a lot of money unless you’re at the very top, and now that I’m climbing to the top, if I wasn’t living at home, I’d be lost. I’m just literally in from training now and my dad was out on the bike with me, so he was doing my gels, my drinks, my timing and keeping the wind off me. I got too hot then, I had to take off my jacket and my headband, so it’s doing so many different things at once. And listening to me cursing when the session gets hard and having to deal with me.“There are times after training like the other day, I came in, I had a hard session and just took off my gear. I threw everything onto the floor and literally just went to bed. I didn’t have the energy to pick up my gear, so my poor mother had to deal with that as well.”Fianna, meanwhile, is now four years old and unsurprisingly, is already looking like following in her mother’s footsteps.I’m not even asking or telling her to do anything, but I come in and she’s like: ‘I want to do my training now.’ So it’s out on the road with her and run a bit and come back. Or she’s copying me doing my stretches and exercises. It’s just [repeating] what they see obviously. It’s gas how it’s happening again [like it did with my dad and me].”Veale says her mental health remains a work in progress. The West Waterford AC athlete continues to regularly see a sports psychologist. She acknowledges her message of “it’s okay not to feel okay” may sound “cheesy” or cliched, but that should not detract from its importance.“I’m a deep thinker I suppose and now that I’ve come out the other end, I just want people to know that they can [get better]. I would have thought I’m never going to come out of this stage. Even in terms of a career, I thought I won’t even get a job, I won’t do athletics, I’ll just be this person in hospital for the rest of my life. It’s not that way at all now, it’s really not.“Rob even, I would have thought he was so hardy and never went through any shit. Now I know he did and everyone has.  “It’s okay to ask for help and it will be normal to go through the hard times. [Success] doesn’t keep going up and up. When you have the adversity and the bad days, it’s about getting over those things and simply expecting them.” Veale is hoping to represent Ireland at the 2020 Olympics.Statistics have shown that Irish people tend to drop out of their chosen sport in their late teens at an alarming rate amid the transition from school to college, and these figures relate particularly to females. For a long time, it seemed as if Veale too would succumb to this unfortunate trend.“In Ireland, the culture we have, you’re thinking you’re missing out on parties and college life. I would have used drink as a crutch. You feel alright for the night and then you’re back to the way you were feeling again the next day with depression, anxiety and stuff.“Being fit, powerful, putting your body on the line and being out there, pushing yourself to the limit, there’s no better feeling.I want to get to the next Olympics and will try as hard as I can, but I’m going to enjoy this journey and take the risk and what happens happens.“It’s exciting. It’s like there’s joy in misery and pain and suffering. It’s finding what’s worth suffering for. And we all have something — it could be music or art or whatever.“There’ll be a good few shocked friends [reading this article], but that’s good, because it’s real and it helps people in this fake [social media] world.“Someone was messing with me recently saying: ‘Wouldn’t you love to just be a simple girl who is happy with their normal life?’ They probably are the happiest and they don’t even think about these things. A lot of the time, it’s people who are striving to be successful [who are at risk of depression].

Investigation reopened into missing street children

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A prosecutor has ordered a fresh criminal investigation into the fate of 502 children who are alleged to have gone missing from state care from 1998 to 2002. Between 1998 and 2002, the children, who were mostly Albanian Roma, were arrested by the authorities for begging and taken to the Ayia Varvara children’s home, in Nea Smyrni, Athens. They were never repatriated to Albania as planned because soon after their registration at the home, they went missing. Following renewed media interest in the case of the so-called ‘traffic light kids’, Panayiota Fakou, the chief prosecutor at Athens first instance court, ordered that the investigation be reopened into what happened to the children, all of whom were under 14. That investigation failed to identify what had happened the children. In 2005, the special rapporteur on the sale of children, child prostitution and child pornography of the UN’s Commission on Human Rights, Juan Miguel Petit, reported specifically on this case. Last year, four Greek and Albanian nongovernmental organisations published a report into the missing children, calling for the ombudsmen in both countries to coordinate their efforts into case. They also called on the Greek judicial authorities “to complete in a thorough and effective manner the pending criminal investigation for abduction of children younger than 14 years before charges become time-barred in 2013”.

Si la Terre et Vénus sont si différentes cest à cause du

first_imgSi la Terre et Vénus sont si différentes, c’est à cause du SoleilUne équipe d’astronomes japonais explique que les deux planètes qui sont souvent considérées comme jumelles dans le système solaire, la Terre et Vénus, n’ont en réalité rien à voir entre elles. Selon eux, cela s’explique par leur distance par rapport au Soleil.La Terre et Vénus ont pendant de très longues années été considérées comme des planètes jumelles. En effet, les deux planètes possèdent une taille et une masse quasiment identiques et toutes deux ne sont pas si éloignées que ça du Soleil (Vénus se situe entre Mercure, la planète la plus proche du Soleil, et la Terre). De plus, la Terre aussi bien que Vénus font partie de la classe des “planètes telluriques”. D’après les spécialistes, elles ont probablement été formées à partir de matériaux rocheux similaires au cours d’un même phénomène dit d”accrétion”, il y a quelque 4,6 milliards d’années. Enfin, comme la Terre, Vénus a probablement eu de grandes quantités d’eau. Dans ce cas, comment expliquer que Vénus soit aujourd’hui une des planètes les plus sèches du système solaire alors que la Terre possède de tels océans ? Si Vénus est sèche comme un caillou, cela est due à leur distance par rapport au Soleil, répondent des astronomes japonais. Comme l’expliquent Keiko Hamano et ses collègues de l’Université de Tokyo, les planètes rocheuses qui, comme Vénus, reçoivent de la chaleur d’une étoile proche, se refroidissent lentement. Cela permet à l’eau de s’échapper dans l’espace ce qui entraîne le dessèchement de la planète. En revanche, sur les planètes rocheuses formées au-delà d’une distance critique de leur étoile, comme la Terre, le refroidissement rapide emprisonne l’eau dans la roche et sous forme liquide à leur surface.Des planètes humides ou toutes desséchées À lire aussiBoisson, météorite et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 5 septembreAinsi, l’équipe de Keiko Hamano subdivise les planètes telluriques en deux sous-groupes selon leur évolution pendant le processus de solidification. Une planète de type I, formée au-delà d’une certaine distance critique de son étoile, se solidifie en quelques millions d’années. Dans ce cas, la majeure partie de l’eau acquise pendant sa formation est conservée et forme les premiers océans. Une planète de type II, elle, formée à l’intérieur de la zone critique, met jusqu’à 100 millions d’années à se solidifier et se dessèche au cours du processus de solidification.La Terre est classée comme type I, certes, mais le type auquel appartient Vénus n’est pas clair puisqu’elle se situe à une distance orbitale proche de la distance critique. Néanmoins, son extrême sécheresse fait que Vénus “peut être représentative des planètes de type II”. En conclusion, “l’habitabilité de la Terre et l’inhospitalité de Vénus peuvent être le résultat inévitable de la position qu’ils occupent par rapport au Soleil”, indique Linda Elkins-Tanton (Institut Carnegie pour la Science, Washington), dans un éditorial de la revue Nature. “Et si tel est le cas, des modèles similaires d’habitabilité sont susceptibles d’être trouvés dans des exoplanètes”, ajoute-t-elle. Une nouvelle preuve que l’Univers recèle encore un grand nombre de mystères insoupçonnés. Le 30 mai 2013 à 17:35 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Next few months will be an exceptional challenge – Southgate

first_imgEngland national team head coach believes the next set of international games are very crucial to the country as they find themselves in a bit of a rut.The Three Lions’ are in midst of a three-match losing streak for the first time since 1988 following the loss to Spain and World Cup defeats in the third-place play-off to Belgium and semi-final to Croatia.And are expected to make wholesale changes for the friendly against Switzerland on Tuesday, but face a doubleheader next month away to Croatia and Spain in the Nations League.Southgate says the next three months will be an “exceptional challenge” and “will tell us exactly where we stand”. The former England defender is yet to extend his contract beyond Euro 2020,“Well, first and foremost, I am 100 per cent focused on this job, nothing else,” he said, as quoted by Sky Sports.“I am under contract, I have two years.”Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“You know that leads to a European Championship, which we have games at Wembley, which is going to be a brilliant experience. That is my pure focus.”“I know absolutely what comes with the job so anything that suggests there’s a problem with what surrounds the job, and the focus and attention of it, absolutely no problem at all.”“I want to be in games that matter.”“I believe I’ve been through an experience that is as pressured as you’re ever going to face at any club or international team in getting through a World Cup, so I’m totally comfortable with that, and what’s beyond that is to be decided.”“For me, I’m under contract, I’m enjoying the role, I love the challenge of it and that’s it really.”last_img read more

First case of Zika in Texas Likely Spread By Mosquito

first_img Share Rafaelgilo | Commons Creative, https://commons.wikimedia.orgAn image of a Zika virus mosquito.The State Health department is reporting the first case of Zika likely spread by a mosquito to a person in Texas. For months now, many health experts said it was not a case of if, but when the Zika virus would be spread locally in Texas. It’s happened in Brownsville in Cameron County on the border with Mexico. The patient is a woman who is not pregnant. She felt ill and a doctor ordered a Zika test.Texas has already documented 257 cases of travel-related Zika, but this is the first case thought to be transmitted from an infected mosquito to someone who has not traveled.The state and county health departments are now going door to door in a six to eight block area around the woman’s house to educate people about the risks. They’ll be collecting voluntary urine samples to see if anyone else has been infected.Texas is working with the Centers for Disease Control and health departments in Florida that dealt with locally-transmitted Zika cases this summer. Brownsville stays warm in the winter, so mosquito protection is a year-round need in the Rio Grande Valley, where mosquito spraying is already underway. Health officials do not expect the virus will become widespread in Texas. last_img read more

UPDATE Poás Volcano eruption prompts temporary closure of national park

first_imgUPDATE: April 14. 10:34 a.m.Vulcanologists from OVSICORI and the National Seismological Network reported two strong eruptions at Poás Volcano at 7:39 a.m. and 7:57 a.m. on Friday.The new eruptions formed an ash and vapor plume of some 3 kilometers (some 9,800 feet) above the crater, visible from varios locations in the provinces of Alajuela, Heredia and San José.OVSICORI estimates that ash could reach communities in these provinces in areas including: Bajos del Toro, Zarcero, Pocosol, La Tigra, Florencia, San José de la Montaña, Naranjo, San Ramón, Palmares, Sarchí, Grecia, San Luis, Finca Inés, Alto Palomo, Altura, Fraijanes, Carrizal, San Pedro de Poás, Santa Bárbara, Pozo Azul.The National Seismological Network posted a video made of pictures sent to its social media profiles: Related posts:Gas, vapor at Poás Volcano prompts preventive measures Ash from Turrialba Volcano keeps falling on the Central Valley Turrialba Volcano again spews ash and vapor Experts document presence of lava in two Costa Rican volcanoes Original story follows:The National Emergency Commission (CNE) issued a Green (Informative) Alert on Thursday following an explosion Wednesday night at Poás Volcano.The tourist entrance to the Poás Volcano National Park is closed Thursday and Friday, as well as some of the roads near the park.The alert applies for residents of seven cantons in the province of Alajuela: Poás, Sarchí, Zarcero, Grecia, San Carlos, Río Cuarto and Central Alajuela, who should remain vigilant of the volcano’s activity, the CNE said.The explosion occurred at around 6:30 p.m. and hurled rocks, vapor, gases and water into the air and towards the southwest of the crater, the Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (OVSICORI) reported.Water and sediments fell on the Agrio, Gata and Desagüe rivers and caused a flash flood on the latter.CNE Operations Director Walter Fonseca said in a news release that there is a possibility of similar events, so officials recommend that people stay away from these rivers and nearby areas.OVSICORI and CNE  officials conducted an inspection on Thursday morning and found a large amount of sediment along the Desagüe river, mostly in the Bajos del Toro area.Geologist Blas Enríquez said, following the inspection, that the flash flood did not cause any damage to homes, bridges, roads, or any other structure. The CNE, however, recommended that local residents remain alert.Businesses in areas surrounding the volcano, located 47 kilometers northwest of San José, are open and working as usual, the agency noted.Visitors were forced to evacuate the popular national park last Sunday as a preventive measure due to an increase in the emanation of gases from the crater.

first_img Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo 0 Comments   Share   That’s why in an ESPN Insider article listing one free agent each NFL team should sign, tight end Martellus Bennett was chosen for Arizona.The 29-year-old could give the Cardinals a new weapon at the tight end position.Here’s what ESPN said about Bennett potentially going to Arizona:For a team that uses a tight end as such a crucial part of its offense, the Cardinals might want to fix the revolving door of inadequacy that they’ve managed in recent years. For Arizona, it’s a blocking-first position, and New England’s Bennett has been one of the top blocking tight ends over the course of his career. The journeyman also adds some playmaking ability after the catch, as he led the league in broken tackles in 2013 and 2014.Bennett would be a valuable signing for the Cardinals. He spent 2016 with the Patriots and helped them win Super Bowl LI with five catches for 62 yards in the OT win over the Atlanta Falcons. During the regular season he caught 55 passes for 701 yards and seven touchdowns.If Bennett does sign with Arizona, it would be his fifth team, with previous stops with the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Chicago Bears and Patriots. He would join his brother Michael Bennett, who is a defensive lineman for the Seattle Seahawks, in the NFC West. Top Stories Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Under head coach Bruce Arians, the Cardinals have been very proficient on the offensive side of the ball.But despite having one of the NFL’s best offenses, Arizona has not used tight ends as much as one might think.In 2016, the Cardinals’ leading receiver for a tight end was Jermaine Gresham, though his 391 receiving yards ranked sixth overall on the team. Gresham’s receiving yards were 28th in the league for tight ends.
