Prolongation de la chasse au dauphin au Japon

first_imgProlongation de la chasse au dauphin au Japon Le port japonais de Taiji vient de prolonger d’un mois la période de chasse aux dauphins qui devait initialement prendre fin en avril.   Un responsable de la coopérative des pêches de Taiji, au Japon, a indiqué à l’AFP que l’autorisation de la chasse aux dauphins cette année avait été prolongée jusqu’à la fin du mois de mai par les autorités préfectorales. Rien que mercredi une soixantaine de dauphins ont été capturés et mis en vente aux enchères dès le lendemain.   À lire aussiVidéo – Un bébé baleine à bosse aperçu 20 minutes après sa naissanceChaque année, entre septembre et avril, les pêcheurs japonais attrapent près de 2.000 dauphins. Ils sont soit revendus à des aquariums ou à des parcs d’attraction, soit tués pour être mangés. Depuis plusieurs années, des organisations de défense des animaux cherchent à faire interdire cette pêche en dénonçant un massacre brutal et anachronique, rapporte Romandie.  Pour se défendre, les Japonais répondent que les écologistes ne tiennent pas compte de leurs traditions notamment en ce qui concerne la chasse à la baleine, perpétuée depuis des siècles.Le 8 mai 2011 à 18:01 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Les éoliennes et le pont du Mont SaintMichel préoccupent lUnesco

first_imgLes éoliennes et le pont du Mont Saint-Michel préoccupent l’UnescoL’Unesco devrait demander à la France d’augmenter son périmètre d’exclusion d’éoliennes autour du Mont Saint-Michel. L’organisme souhaite également que soit modifié le projet de passerelle qui doit remplacer l’actuelle route entre le rocher et la côte en 2015.Les 27, 28 et 29 juin prochains, l’Unesco se réunit à Saint-Petersbourg en Russie. A l’ordre du jour, sera évoqué le sort du Mont Saint-Michel, classé au patrimoine mondial, et la présence d’éoliennes autour du site. De même, sera décidé si le projet de passerelle qui doit remplacer l’actuelle route entre le rocher et la côte d’ici 2015 doit être réévalué. En effet, une mission de l’Unesco remontant à novembre 2011 “a pris note de la présence d’éoliennes qui sont visibles depuis le Mont-Saint-Michel même à plus de 20 kilomètres de distance – tel le parc éolien de Trémeheuc, situé à environ 23 kilomètres du site”, indique le document préparatoire.Or, “le mouvement des hélices des éoliennes dans la journée et les lumières la nuit ont un effet préjudiciable à ce qui est considéré comme un paysage éternel de terre et d’eau. Les éoliennes interrompent les perspectives visuelles du Mont, en particulier pour les pèlerins”, selon le rapport de mission qui conclut ainsi : “les éoliennes ont un impact négatif sur le cadre paysager du bien [ … ] qui véhicule sa valeur universelle exceptionnelle”. De son côté, l’Etat a annoncé en mars qu’il préparait un périmètre d’exclusion des éoliennes de 40 km de rayon à l’ouest et à l’est du rocher et d’environ 20 km au nord et au sud. Pour le moment, le comité de patrimoine mondial de l’Unesco accueille donc “avec satisfaction l’engagement de l’Etat partie à établir une zone d’exclusion des éoliennes” mais “prend note de la nécessité de définir une méthode, pas adoptée à ce jour, satisfaisante d’établissement d’une zone d’exclusion”, indique le projet en ligne sur le site de l’organisme.Une zone d’accès trop haute À lire aussiLa Grande Barrière de Corail de nouveau menacée par l’extraction de gaz de schisteEn ce qui concerne le projet de pont passerelle, l’Unesco envisage de demander une modification du projet de rétablissement du caractère maritime (RCM) du Mont Saint-Michel. Il s’agissait de baisser la hauteur du terre-plein sur lequel doit s’appuyer, à l’arrivée au mont, le pont passerelle qui doit remplacer l’actuelle digue-route en 2015. L’organisation “demande à l’Etat partie de garantir que la hauteur de la zone d’accès érigée aux abords immédiats du Mont (terre-plein) ne dépasse pas 6,80 mètres afin de minimiser son impact visuel”.Sur ce point toutefois, l’Etat a indiqué dans un communiqué qu’il maintenait la hauteur de ce gué à 7,30 mètres et qu’il répondait défavorablement à la demande du syndicat mixte qui gère le projet de RCM de le baisser à 6,80 mètres. Cette hauteur est jugée indispensable à l’organisation des secours au Mont Saint-Michel. Un porte-parole de l’Unesco à Paris a précisé que ce projet de décision pouvait aussi bien être “adopté tel quel” qu’être “amendé” lors de son examen fin juin.Le 13 juin 2012 à 09:41 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Due to continuing travel and environmental-exposure hazards, a winter-storm warning issued by the weather service will remain in effect for the county’s mountains until 1 a.m. Friday.The precipitation is expected to dwindle away overnight, forecasters predicted. Thereafter, dry skies and warming temperatures should prevail through the middle of next week, with another local storm possibly arriving at the beginning of March, the weather service reported.

City County to Contribute Funding to Relocate Armory to MCLB Albany

first_imgThe Albany City (Ga.) and Dougherty County commissions at a rare joint meeting Tuesday approved the local share of funding needed to relocate a National Guard readiness center to Marine Corps Logistics Base (MCLB) Albany, a move designed to strengthen the active-duty installation.Albany and Dougherty County each will contribute $200,000 to the cost of building the new armory now located in Albany; Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal (R) previously included $1.1 million in the state’s supplemental fiscal 2016 budget for the project, reported the Albany Herald.“This has been a long time coming, but it will have a lasting impact on our community for years to come,” said Jeff Sinyard, a member of the Georgia Military Affairs Coordinating Committee and the Southwest Georgia Alliance. “It will strengthen the Marine base’s ties with our community, it will enhance our standing in the event of a future BRAC and it will build momentum for future opportunities on the base,” said Sinyard, who also is a former chairman of the Dougherty County Commission.Relocating the National Guard facility — in conjunction with the August 2014 move of a Veterans Affairs outpatient clinic to MCLB Albany — will improve the installation’s competitiveness in a future base closure round, said Ed Cassity, a member of the Georgia Military Affairs Coordinating Committee and the Southwest Georgia Alliance.“Being an efficient, multitasking installation is essential to competitiveness,” said Cassity, a retired major general. “Your financial support today demonstrates to the governor and to the Corps that Albany and Dougherty County are ready to step up to the plate,” he said.

Porsche buys stake in Israeli selfdriving tech startup

first_img Porsche Now playing: Watch this: 67 Photos 0 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous Share your voice TriEye’s technology could help autonomous systems “see” even better in poor conditions. Porsche Automakers are always on the lookout for startup companies with something in the pipeline that could help realize a major technological advancement. And the industry has an obvious interest in autonomous driving and self-driving cars. Porsche has seen something in Israeli startup TriEye, announcing Wednesday that it’s bought a minority stake in the startup. Specifically, Porsche detailed the company’s impressive development on a a sensor technology for short-wave infrared (SWIR). The technology allows driver-assistance and self-driving systems to “see” more clearly in poor weather conditions. Dust, fog and rain are all elements that may make it harder for an autonomous car to operate and self-driving systems generally have a difficult time operating in anything other than perfect conditions.What makes TriEye unique is further development on semi-conductor design. Porsche said the patent-pending technology will make it possible to manufacture SWIR HD cameras for far less than what they currently cost. Making technology that could be essential to tomorrow’s autonomous driving systems cheaper is always a positive for automakers. The German company hasn’t exactly taken to the driver’s seat when it comes to autonomous cars, but parent automaker Volkswagen Group has. VW has consistently worked with partners such as Aurora Innovations. However, VW dissolved that particular partnership as it announced it will work exclusively with Ford’s Argo AI on self-driving car technologies.Porsche’s investment comes during a Series A funding round for the startup. Other investors include Intel Capital and Grove Ventures.

Authors war on bed bugs included a little chocolate

first_imgThe dreaded bed bug. (Drawing courtesy of Wikimedia Commons)Download Audio My bed is an island. It’s covered with books, notebooks, research, pens,paintbrushes and, often, my beloved granddaughter. Still, it’s an island. No part of my sheets or other bedding touches the floor or a wall. My pillows, mattress and box spring are each encased in squeaky bug proof covers.And there is talcum powder that I’ve spread along the edges of the room – bed bugs are somewhat intolerant of baby powder.I moved into this great apartment last fall. And was immediately assaulted by bed bugs. A pest control company came. During the first of four weekly applications I walked around with the bed bug guy, peppering him with questions, as he sprayed some concoction onto the walls, baseboards and into electrical outlets. I was enjoying his company until he said “Yeah, the weight of this chemical will take down bed bugs but I don’t think it can take down a person.”I fled to my computer to start researching.An  EPA report was full of DO NOT DO THIS statements– such as do not spray in a school classroom when occupied. The Alaska Pesticide Control program and research from Michigan State University WERE helpful and, eventually, it all boiled down to this: prolonged stress, considerable financial investment, physical and psychological harm – did I mention my 2 am trip to the ER when I was covered with red itchy bites, and my blood pressure had skyrocketed. When I finally saw an ER doctor he said… it’s not a medical problem. You can go home.Everything in the apartment had to be put in big black trash bags and moved into the middle of the living room and sealed for at least three weeks, boxes should be broken down and thrown away. Throw away as much as you can of Everything.Vaccum – vaccum, vaccum. Buy bed bug encasement protectors – well over $200 dollars to “outfit” my bed. Shower every night before bed. Wash your bedding at least once a week and dry on high, high heat for a long, long time. Do not use shared or public laundromats as you – and your bedding might spread the bed bugs.I  declared my own WAR on this invasion of rapidly multiplying, blood seeking bugs.And I was ruthless and utterly fearless with my piles of research, talcum powder, and duct tape sitting on my Island Bed as I vacuumed, washed, scrubbed, showered and bagged day after day, and night after night. Medication helped. Also, chocolate.Anchorage Writer Sumner MacLeish is the author of “Seven Words for Wind: Essays and Field Notes from Alaska’s Pribilof Islands.” She listened to our report last week on the difficulty, expense, and stress for rural residents trying to get rid of bed bugs. MacLeish has lived in rural Alaska but it was not until she got to Anchorage that she first encountered Cimex lectularius.last_img read more

Sony pulls Motorstorm from PSN to stop PS Vita hack

first_imgSony has always taken a tough stance on hackers unlocking their gaming systems, just ask George Hotz. The PS Vita is no different, and an exploit revealed this week has forced Sony to remove a game from PSN.The game in question is Motorstorm Arctic Edge, which according to the video proof above, allowed the Vita Half Byte Loader (VHBL) to work. VHBL is an updated version of HBL — a loader for the PSP that allows emulators and homebrew games to be run on Sony’s hardware.The exploit was advertised as being available in the coming days by hacker Wololo yesterday. He told everyone which game they needed to purchase, and then to wait for the VHBL files to be released. However, Sony was watching and decided to pull the game from PSN, meaning even if VHBL is released, not many people will be able to use it.It’s also worth noting that even if Sony hadn’t pulled the game, no one in the U.S. could have played it as Motorstorm is classed as not compatible with US-registered Vitas.By pulling the game before VHBL was released, Sony can’t see what exploit was used (unless Wololo releases anyway). They are sure to have someone trying to figure out what it was though, and it’s probably a similar exploit to that used on the PSP with the original HBL. As to the fate of Motorstorm Arctic Edge, I expect the game to see a re-release in patched form in the near future. While Sony may have stopped this exploit from being of much use, it does demonstrate that they can’t guarantee PS Vita will remain a closed platform. Motivated hackers will continue to try and circumvent the machine’s security, and it’s inevitable a cat & mouse game of unlocks and patches will happen at some point in the Vita’s lifetime.Read more at Wololo, via Engadgetlast_img read more

Jackson’s worst nightmare just came true, with new video of a real live snake slithering into the cabin of an Aeromexico plane.According to Huffington Post Canada, passengers on a commercial flight from Torreon to Mexico City on Sunday were given the shock of their lives when a bright green serpent came slithering out of the overhead bin. In a scene straight out of the Hollywood thriller ‘Snakes on a Plane’, the slimy reptile was caught on video emerging from the ceiling before partially dropping down into the cabin.Aeromexico said in a statement that the plane was given priority landing in Mexico City, where workers “secured the reptile.” The airline is currently investigating how the snake came to be in the cabin and is taking measures to avoid it from ever happening again. No word yet on what these measures entail, but we’re hoping it involves Samuel L.

Profits expected for aviation industry IATA

first_imgThere is cautious optimism ahead for the aviation industry as the International Air Transport Association forecast yesterday a return to profit for airlines.Speaking at the association’s annual general assembly in Berlin yesterday, IATA director general Giovanni Bisignani upgraded IATA’s global industry forecast to a full year profit of 2.5 billion dollars, representing a profit for airlines since 2007.He said global traffic was back to pre-recession levels with load factors nearing 80 percent while the bottom line was improving.“Asia-Pacific is powering the upturn with $2.2 billion in profit. North American carriers will move into the black at $1.9 billion. “Latin American airlines will return $900 million, the only region with two consecutive profitable years. Middle Eastern and African carriers will each deliver profits of $100 million.However, Bisignani noted that not all regions were recovering equally, with a $2.8 billion loss expected to keep Europe in the red.He also stressed that with a margin of 0.5 percent, the upgrade would only be reason for a “modest” celebration.There will also be risks associated with an upturn, he said.Risks will include excess capacity, unrealistic salary expectations from pilots and crew, tax increases as well as oil price volatility. “From $40 per barrel in 2009, crude almost hit $90 per barrel earlier this year. Hedging is critical for our business, but speculators are making huge profits.“Governments must protect the economy from irresponsible profiteering.” <a href=”http://www.etbtravelnews.global/click/29f06/” target=”_blank”><img src=”http://adsvr.travelads.biz/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=10&amp;cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE&amp;n=a5c63036″ border=”0″ alt=””></a> Source = e-Travel Blackboard: J.Llast_img read more

Go back to the enewsletter Following the 10th ann

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletterFollowing the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina in 2015, New Orleans is a city reinvigorated. The 300-year-old Crescent City long ago established itself as one of America’s great cities by creating its own distinctive mark in literature, art, cuisine and – of course – music. Hurricane Katrina could not halt its momentum, instead inspiring a wealth of new ideas that has kept the city’s tourism afloat.In the words of Stephen Perry, President and CEO of the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau, addressing IPW 2016’s attendees, “Please, relax and allow yourself to be immersed in our unique culture, cuisine, music and laissez-faire spirit … We think you will quickly recognise that you are in a special place, and begin to understand why New Orleans is knows as, “the city that care forgot” and the “Crescent City” among others.“There has never been a better time to experience New Orleans … Thanks to the dedication of locals and visitors alike, New Orleans is experiencing an amazing economic and cultural renaissance. As we prepare for its tricentennial celebration in 2018, our city is bustling with progress and innovation. From the opening of a new airport in 2018, a billion-dollar revitalisation project taking place along the riverfront, to small independent businesses in the historic neighbourhoods of Treme, Bywater, Magazine Street and Faubourg Marigny, business is robust and our joie de vivre has never been more passionate.”Perry likens a visit to New Orleans to a sensory reshuffle: “When you come to New Orleans, its like your molecules rearrange a little bit.”At the IPW 2015 press conference, Perry promised a variety of unique, only-in-New Orleans experiences, “If you haven’t been to New Orleans in the past few years, you’re going to be astonished … It looks different, it feels different. And the great thing about our tours and tour guides is that, instead of ‘normal tours’, in New Orleans you get to do things like take a voodoo tour at midnight, and literary tours to see where Tennessee Williams, William Faulkner, great literary artists have written.”Go back to the e-newsletterlast_img read more

for this three acre

for this three-acre farm in Upper Marlboro MarylandShe joined a growing movement of highly educated ex-urban first-time farmers who are capitalizing on booming consumer demand for local and sustainable foods and experts say could have a broad impact on the food systemFor only the second time in the last century the number of farmers under 35 years old is increasing according to the US Department of Agriculture’s latest Census of AgricultureThis new generation can’t hope to replace the numbers that farming is losing to age But it is already contributing to the growth of the local-food movement and could help preserve the place of midsize farms in the rural landscape"We’re going to see a sea change in American agriculture as the next generation gets on the land" said Kathleen Merrigan the head of the Food Institute at George Washington University and a deputy secretary at the USDA under President Barack Obama "The only question is whether they’ll get on the land given the challenges"The number of farmers age 25 to 34 grew 22 percent between 2007 and 2012according to the 2014 USDA censusa period when other groups of farmers – save the oldest – shrunk by double digits In some states such as California Nebraska and South Dakota the number of beginning farmers has grown by 20 percent or moreA survey conducted by Merrigan for the National Young Farmers Coalition an advocacy group shows that the majority of young farmers did not grow up in agricultural familiesThey are also far more likely than the general farming population to grow organically limit pesticide and fertilizer use diversify their crops or animals and be deeply involved in their local food systems via community supported agriculture (CSA) programs and farmers marketsToday’s young farmers also tend to operate small farms of less than 50 acres though that number increases with each successive year of experienceWhitehurst bought her farm Owl’s Nest from a retiring farmer in 2015The farm sits at the end of a gravel road a series of vegetable fields unfurling from a steep hill capped by her tiny white house Like the farmer who worked this land before her she leases the house and the fields from a neighboring couple in their 70s She grows organically certified peppers cabbages tomatoes and salad greens from baby kale to arugula rotating her fields to enrich the soil and planting cover crops in the off-seasonOn Tuesdays Thursdays and Fridays she and two longtime friends from Washington wake up in semi-darkness to harvest by hand kneeling in the mud to cut handfuls of greens before the sun can wilt them All three young women who also live on the farm make their living off the produce Whitehurst sells whether to restaurants through CSA shares or at a DC farmers marketFinances can be tight The women admit they’ve given up higher standards of living to farm"I wanted to have a positive impact and that just felt very distant in my other jobs out of college" Whitehurst said "In farming on the other hand you make a difference Your impact is immediate"That impact could grow as young farmers scale up and become a larger part of the commercial food system Merrigan saidAlready several national grocery chains including Walmart and SuperValu have built out local-food-buying programs according to AT Kearney a management consulting firmYoung farmers are also creating their own "food hubs" allowing them to store process and market food collectively and supply grocery and restaurant chains at a price competitive with national suppliersThat’s strengthening the local and organic food movement experts say"I get calls all the time from farmers – some of the largest farmers in the country – asking me when the local and organic fads will be over" said Eve Turow Paul a consultant who advises farms and food companies on millennial preferences "It’s my pleasure to tell them: Look at this generation Get on board or go out of business"There are also hopes that the influx of young farmers could provide some counter to the aging of American agricultureThe age of the average American farmer has crept toward 60 over several decades risking the security of midsize family farms where children aren’t interested in succeeding their parentsBetween 1992 and 2012 the country lost more than 250000 midsize and small commercial farms according to the USDA During that same period more than 35000 very large farms started up and the large farms already in existence consolidated their acreageMidsize farms are critical to rural economies generating jobs spending and tax revenue And while they’re large enough to supply mainstream markets they’re also small enough to respond to environmental changes and consumer demandIf today’s young farmers can continue to grow their operations said Shoshanah Inwood a rural sociologist at Ohio State University they could bolster these sorts of farms – and in the process prevent the land from falling into the hands of large-scale industrial operations or residential developers"Multigenerational family farms are shrinking And big farms are getting bigger" Inwood said "For the resiliency of the food system and of rural communities we need more agriculture of the middle"It’s too early to say at this point whether young farmers will effect that sort of changeThe number of young farmers entering the field is nowhere near enough to replace the number exiting according to the USDA: Between 2007 and 2012 agriculture gained 2384 farmers between ages 25 and 34 – and lost nearly 100000 between 45 and 54And young farmers face formidable challenges to starting and scaling their businesses The costs of farmland and farm equipment are prohibitive Young farmers are frequently dependent on government programs including child-care subsidies and public health insurance to cover basic needsAnd student loan debt – which 46 percent of young farmers consider a "challenge" according to the National Young Farmers Coalition – can strain already tight finances and disqualify them from receiving other forms of creditBut Lindsey Lusher Shute the executive director of the coalition said she has seen the first wave of back-to-the-landers grow up in the eight years since she co-founded the advocacy group And she suggested that new policy initiatives including student loan forgiveness and farm transition programs could further help them"Young farmers tend to start small and sell to direct markets because that’s a viable way for them to get into farming" Lusher Shute said "But many are shifting gears as they get into it – getting bigger or moving into wholesale"Just last year Whitehurst was approached by an online grocery service that wanted to buy her vegetables While Owl’s Nest produces too little to supply such a large buyer on its own the service planned to buy produce from multiple small local farmersWhitehurst ultimately turned the deal down however Among other things she feared that she could not afford to sell her vegetables at the lower price the service wanted"For now I’m focused on getting better not bigger" she said "But in a few years who knows Ask me again then"Former media aide to
