Batailles de boules de neige dans les anneaux de Saturne

first_imgBatailles de boules de neige dans les anneaux de SaturneDes observations réalisées par la sonde spatiale Cassini-Huygens, qui tourne autour de Saturne depuis 2004, ont permis de découvrir de drôles d’activités dans l’anneau F de la planète géante.C’est une vrai bataille de boules de neige, à l’échelle spatiale bien entendu, qui se joue autour de Saturne, et plus exactement au niveau de ses anneaux F. Bien connu des scientifiques, ceux-ci sont en effet l’objet d’une particularité due à la présence en leur sein d’un satellite de la planète, Prométhée. Régulièrement, il s’approche du bord de ces anneaux F et attire à lui des particules de glace, ce qui crée des distorsions dans cette zone, qui ont été obervées par Cassini-Huygens. Pourtant, l’équipe du Professeur Murray de l’Université Queen Mary de Londres, qui a présenté ses travaux au Congrès de l’European Geosciences Union (EGU) de Vienne, a fait une étonnante découverte.À lire aussiBoisson, météorite et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 5 septembreIl a en effet observé d’autres mouvements de distorsion de ces anneaux, sans que Prométhée ne se trouve pourtant dans la zone. Des distorsions, sous forme de jets de glaces, moins importantes que celles provoquées par le satellite mais bien obervées par la sonde spatiale. En fait, ce sont les éléments de glace soulevés par Prométhée lors de son passage qui finissent, sous l’effet de l’attraction de ce dernier, par former des boules de matière glacée. Celles-ci finissent par revenir dans les anneaux à une vitesse de rotation bien moins importante que celle des blocs qui les composent, provoquant ainsi de nouveaux jets. Une situation scrutée par les scientifiques qui voient dans le système d’anneaux de Saturne une sorte de mini-système solaire originel et qui pourraient créer un modèle prenant en compte ce type de phénomènes pour expliquer la formation du Soleil et de la Terre…Le 26 avril 2012 à 10:00 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Apple says Steve Jobs resigning as CEO

first_imgSteve Jobs, the mind behind the iPhone, iPad and other devices that turned Apple Inc. into one of the world’s most powerful companies, resigned as the company’s CEO on Wednesday, saying he can no longer handle the job.The move appears to be the result of an unspecified medical condition for which he took an indefinite leave from his post in January. Apple’s chief operating officer, Tim Cook, has been named CEO.In a letter addressed to Apple’s board and the “Apple community,” Jobs said he “always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.”Jobs’ health has long been a concern for Apple investors who see him as an industry oracle who seems to know what consumers want long before they do. After his announcement, Apple stock quickly fell 5.4 percent in after-hours trading. Earlier this month Apple became the most valuable company in America, briefly surpassing Exxon Mobil. At the market close Wednesday its market value was $349 billion, just behind Exxon Mobil’s $358 billion.last_img read more

Sacred Games 2 Nawaz Saifs series demands a complete balidan of viewers

After a long wait, the makers are back with Sacred Games season 2, but unfortunately, the web series failed to live up to the expectations, this time around.In season 1, viewers were introduced to Mumbai’s dreaded don Ganesh Gaitonde, played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who spares no one when it comes to his survival. But in season 2, the same Ganesh Gaitonde, is being controlled by many people and even his foul mouth couldn’t save him from his draining life.Apart from Nawaz, Jatin Sarna as Bunty, Saif Ali Khan as Sartaj, Pankaj Tripathi as Guruji, Kalki Koechlin, Saurabh Sachdeva as Suleiman Isa and others try to lift the series with their performances, but the screenplay becomes a drag even after watching three episodes and makes you feel lost somewhere in the chaos.You may want to finish the series just the sake of it to know how Sartaj will save Mumbai from a nuclear attack and unfold Gaitonde mysterious life. But in the end, you may feel why the makers invested so much of their time turning their favourite web series into a complete disaster.Viewers have been expressing their disappointment with Sacred Games 2 and had been flooding the social media with memes that perfectly decribes their current state of mind.Take a look at some of the reactions on Twitter.Is Sacred Games web series Completed?????

Dhaka advocates Myanmars global engagement for Rohingya repatriation

first_imgUnited Nations ambassadors and their aides attend a U.N. Security Council meeting about the ongoing violence in Myanmar, against Rohingya Muslims on September 28, 2017 in New York City. Photo: AFPBangladesh has called for measures to ensure the safe, voluntary and sustainable return of all those displaced from Myanmar into Bangladesh territory over the years, including the recent ones, reports UNB.“Bangladesh looks forward to immediately start working with Myanmar and the international community to help implement the recommendations of the Advisory Commission on Rakhine State,” permanent representative of Bangladesh to the United Nations, New York, Masud Bin Momen told the the Security Council meeting on the ‘Situation in Myanmar’ on early Friday.He said Bangladesh continues to exercise utmost restraint in the face of repeated, unwarranted and willful provocations by Myanmar. “As a responsible and responsive State, we shall forge ahead seeking peaceful and lasting solution to this protracted situation through diplomacy, dialogue and cooperation,” he said.Accordingly, the envoy said, prime minister Sheikh Hasina made a five-point proposal last week at the General Assembly that have been largely echoed by the Secretary General and Council members this afternoon.“Pursuant to those points, the immediate priorities should be to cease all forms of violence and ensure protection and humanitarian assistance for those affected or vulnerable in Rakhine State,” he said.In this regard, Momen said, previous precedents including the 1992 arrangement through adaptation in the context of current realities, challenges and priorities can be used.For this, he said, Bangladesh prefers joint-verification in the presence of international observers.”The forcibly displaced Myanmar nationals should return to their places of original abode in safety, security and dignity,” said the ambassador.Reiterating the prime minister’s stance in the General Assembly, the envoy said, “The crisis has its root in Myanmar and its solution has to be found in Myanmar.”He said Bangladesh, however, remains committed to engaging with Myanmar and the international community for the resolution of this outstanding critical issue.”Our experience from the last three decades makes it obvious that the bilateral track loses its momentum as soon as the international community shifts its attention elsewhere,” said the Bangladesh envoy.“We, therefore, urge this Council to keep this issue alive in its agenda and make sure that we manage to arrive to the point of its logical conclusion. We also invite the Council members to conduct a field mission to Bangladesh and possibly Myanmar to gather first-hand accounts of the unfolding humanitarian crisis.”The ambassador, on behalf of the government and people of Bangladesh, conveyed sincere appreciation and gratitude to each one of the Council members for the show of support Bangladesh has seen so far.According to the UN, since 25 August, over half a million people have entered Bangladesh fleeing violence in northern Rakhine state.Despite serious constrains, Bangladesh has given shelter to these distressed Rohingyas, the majority of whom are women and children.Prime minister Sheikh Hasina has personally stood beside this most persecuted minority in the world.“We are providing these forcibly displaced Myanmar nationals with basic and emergency humanitarian assistance. The international community has come forward in the spirit of responsibility sharing, although the UN and other relevant partners are stretched beyond their capacity,” said Momen.Bangladesh authorities are also conducting biometric registration of all those that arrived in the last one month.With this fresh influx, Bangladesh is currently hosting over 900,000 forcibly displaced Rohingyasfrom Myanmar.”This is an untenable situation, to say the least,” he told the UNSC debate.The Ambassador said the indiscriminate killing and torture by the Myanmar security forces, aided by vigilante groups acting on religious and ethnic affiliation, has already been cited as a ‘textbook example of ethnic cleansing’ by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.“This has also been emphasized by our Hon’ble Prime Minister in her statement in the General Assembly,” he said.The Security Council perhaps has a responsibility to examine whether military operations and consequent developments in northern Rakhine State point to any ‘threat to peace’ and ‘breach of the peace’ and what could be done to restore peace.Under the circumstances, he said, it is of utmost importance that the remaining Rohingya civilians in northern Rakhine State are guaranteed unconditional protection by creating UN-administered ‘safe zones’ inside Myanmar.It must also be ensured that the humanitarian assistance being provided reach all affected communities, in particular to the Rohingyas. Myanmar must ensure full and unfettered humanitarian access to the UN and other humanitarian agencies, he mentioned.“There is perhaps no taker for the baseless and malicious propaganda to project Rohingyas as ‘illegal immigrants from Bangladesh’. This is not only a blatant denial of the ethnic identity of the Rohingyas, but also an affront to Bengalis all over the world. This has to stop,” he said.The Council, the Ambassador said, should also take into account that reportedly more than two divisions of armed forces had been deployed by Myanmar in areas near our border since the first week of August 2017.Troops were spotted within 200 meters of the zero line, and heavy armaments and artillery are reportedly placed in close proximity of our border, he said.There have been 19 reported incidents of Bangladesh’s air space violation by Myanmar helicopters and drones, said the ambassador.He mentioned that anti-personnel mines have reportedly been laid along the stretch of the border to prevent the return of Rohingyas to Myanmar and there have been incidents of firing on Bangladeshi fishermen resulting in death of one.last_img read more

Why Im happy not having sex if it means I can donate

first_imgWhile for many this might seem like a travesty, it means that I can achieve a life goal that I never thought I would be able to. Something that has been out of my grasp because of my sexuality and my healthy appetite for sex.Today I gave blood.I sat there at the Glasgow blood bank surrounded by fellow donors as Emma took 450ml of my fabulous blood. I felt smug, and even proud that I hadn’t had any sex for as long as I had. It felt good to be giving my blood, especially when I remembered why I wanted to do it so badly.Last week, a friend of mine posted on social media his joy at being able to make an appointment at the blood bank. My first thoughts were of complete, emphatic joy. My friend, Marc, more than most people knows why giving blood is so important. Marc’s father was very ill for a very long time. For Marc, when he would have done anything to help his dad in any way, the fact he couldn’t donate his blood broke his heart.Realizing I could finally donate bloodIt was only later, as I counted out my days, that I realised that I too could donate…by quite a margin!As of 28 November 2017, men who have had sex with men can give blood three months after having sex. Before then it was a 12-month abstinence, and before that a lifelong ban if you had ever had sex with another man.It does still hurt deeply that my blood is seen as somehow dirty and, even now, to give my blood I have to subject myself to clinical standards that make me feel as somehow ‘less than’ those who can give blood without abstaining from sex.This article, however, isn’t about the rights or wrongs of gay men giving blood. Instead, it is down to the surprising reaction I have seen from other gay men on my social media feed and on others.Their reactions break down into two groups:Disbelief and amazement that a gay man can give blood.Those who make a playful joke about not having sex for three months.Why are people uninformed?The first group alarmed me because it means that people in our community aren’t informed. Many of these people have been waiting for years to be able to give their blood but still don’t know that the rules have changed. How can this be? Davey Shields is the co-host of the MenTalk Health podcast eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) The second group is the more troublesome one.  After years of fighting for the right to give blood, why are we so quick to shame and laugh at those of us who might in fact be eligible? Not one of the comments I saw was mean or cruel, it was all said in good fun. However, it is sad that even in an emotional post for Marc about finally being able to give blood, he still felt the need to joke about his supposed nun-like state (believe me, that boy ain’t no nun!). In my own post I went on to explain, with a well-placed Romy and Michele gif, how I’d been far too busy with my work to bother with sex. Why was I so concerned about explaining why it had been so long since I had ‘known’ a man?! Why does it matter? Especially when something good is coming from it.Many of us in the LGBTI community may never be able to give blood, yet it is something we have fought for. Regardless of what many say about it being a health protection, the years of gay and bi men being unable to give blood was always a kick to the gut to us. It does breed an opinion that we, as men who sleep with men, are less. That we are dirty. It definitely adds to the unfair stigma already attached to those in our community living with HIV. Even with this change, this three-month window still has a very bitter taste.‘Let’s show that our gay blood can save lives too.’It may not be the terms that we want, but the bigger picture here is adding to the national blood bank. Let’s show that our ‘gay’ blood can save lives too. We should be embracing the opportunity whenever we can to give blood.I propose this: let’s start owning our sexual droughts, be they chosen or forced. Let’s admit that it has been a while but feel empowered enough to find our nearest blood bank and give blood!Don’t misunderstand me, I love sex. But here I am, a blood donor, and I feel great to finally be able to do it.I can give blood again in 12 weeks. I have a decision to make…Davey Shields is the co-host of the MenTalk Health podcast.

October 19 2007 The Arcosanti Community Counci

first_imgOctober 19, 2007 The Arcosanti Community Council has adopted a piece of Highway 17 in the fashion of many companies or organizations that adopt a mile or so of a local road and dedicate themselves to keeping the surrounding area clean. Loaded up in the back of a few pickups, a crew of volunteers rode out to the ramps of Cordes Junction and set to work picking the shoulders clean of trash and recyclable materials. [Photo & text: workshop participant Leo Sylvester] Decked out in day-glow orange safety vests and carrying sturdy trash bags, the crew crashed through the roadside brush and set to work. What may seem to be a chore actually turns out to be quite the entertaining adventure, once you realize that besides the usual hubcaps, bottles, and fast food cartons, some pretty odd stuff winds up on roadsides. [Photo & text: workshop participant Leo Sylvester] It’s become a bit of a tradition for the volunteers to save their most interesting find, to present to everyone at morning meeting the next day in hopes of winning a prize. Legend has it that on a past Adopt a Highway excursion from Arcosanti, someone found a hundred dollar bill! Though no one found any money on this particular day, there were a few encounters with wildlife; a baby rattlesnake hiding in the safety jacket storage closet, a walnut sized Black Widow spider, and a fairly large lizard hiding in an abandoned 22oz. cup on the roadside. All items collected are brought back to Arcosanti to be thoroughly recycled. At the morning meeting today workshop participant Leo Sylvester won the treasure hunter first prize with a little toy sword that actually lights up. First prize: three delicious cookies from the Arcosanti bakery. [Photos: Leo Sylvester and workshop participant Mic Eo & text: Leo Sylvester]last_img read more
