FORT NELSON, B.C. — The Fort Nelson First Nation will be getting a grant from the World Wildlife Fund Canada – which administers the Loblaw Water Fund – to help monitor water quality in the region.The grant was one of 11 announced by WWF Canada on Friday. In total, $250,000 will be going towards the 11 community projects to improve freshwater health in ecosystems across Canada. “The Loblaw Water Fund provides essential financial support to help local conservation and community groups take action to right the course of Canada’s freshwater future for people and wildlife,” said WWF Canada vice-president of freshwater conservation Elizabeth Hendriks. “The projects WWF selected will help address threats identified in WWF’s Watershed Reports and contribute to a better understanding of the health of our waters where data isn’t available. Ensuring healthy waters across Canada is an enormous task, but one we can accomplish together.”Using a mix of traditional and scientific knowledge, the Fort Nelson First Nation Lands and Resource Department will develop a community-based monitoring initiative to detect changes in the water quality of rivers downstream from major industrial sites in the Fort Nelson area watershed.“We are proud to support this year’s recipients and commend them on the important work they’re doing to preserve and protect Canada’s freshwater,” said Loblaw senior vice-president for corporate affairs, Bob Chant. “Through the Loblaw Water Fund, and our partnership with WWF, we are finding more opportunities to engage Canadians across the country in environmental protection and the Fund ensures greater support for those working to conserve our natural environment.”
Media reports say at least 25 people have been killed in the latest wave of ethnic clashes, which began on Friday in Upper Nile state.In a statement issued by his spokesperson, Mr. Ban called on “all groups to find peaceful means of settling their differences.”He also calls on the Government of South Sudan to re-double its efforts to ensure the protection of civilians and to work with UNMIS [the UN Mission in Sudan] and the United Nations Country Team in strengthening security mechanisms, resolving the root causes of the tensions and addressing the humanitarian situation.”Abatement of violence and intertribal reconciliation in the south are vital to the forthcoming elections in 2010 and the subsequent referendum in 2011.”The UN has become increasingly concern by ethnic-based violence in southern Sudan this year, with at least 100 people killed just last month in Jonglei state. 6 September 2009Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today expressed deep concern at the deadly series of attacks and counter-attacks by tribal militias in southern Sudan that have killed or displaced dozens of civilians.
Jaguar Land Rover’s ‘Young Women in the Know’ course challenges outdated perceptions of engineering to encourage more young women to consider engineering and manufacturing careers to increase the talent pool, especially through Jaguar Land Rover’s apprenticeship routes.During the ‘Young Women in the Know’, students will visit Jaguar Land Rover’s manufacturing, design and engineering sites, meet female apprentices, graduates and managers and spend a day on work experience during the programme. They will also learn about Jaguar Land Rover’s apprentice schemes and participate in workshops on job applications and interview techniques to improve their employability skills.25 females aged 16-18 will participate in the programme at each site.Places are still available to young people who live in the Midlands.

Many technology companies happily pay security researchers and general-purpose hackers cash for identifying software bugs. These so-called bug bounties have led to innumerable vulnerabilities being fixed before they can harm end users. Microsoft, however, has resisted the trend. Well, that ends now. Redmond will start paying those who find flaws in some of its products.Recent years have seen the likes of Google and Facebook ratchet up their bug bounties, which only served to make Microsoft look even more stodgy and out of touch. Microsoft’s new Security Bounty Programs includes some hefty cash prizes for what it terms “truly novel exploitation techniques” discovered in the Windows 8.1 preview.Simply identifying the bug will net the lucky tinkerer $100,000. If the bug report also includes a good method of solving the issue, Microsoft will pony up an additional $50,000. These two bounties are ongoing, so there’s no hard and fast time limit. $150,000 for working out the details of a Windows bug sounds like a good deal — there are probably plenty still to be found in preview software.A separate bug bounty is being offered for Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 8.1. Anyone that can find a critical vulnerability in that piece of software gets $11,000. Why $11,000? Probably because it’s IE 11. This one is only good for 30 days from the start date, though.All three bug bounties start on June 26, 2013, and could net one person $161,000 if they get all three. You can bet there are security experts already queuing up their bug reports for the start date. It’s a big payday. Microsoft has included some technical details on how bug reports will be judged on the Security Bounty Programs page. Happy hacking, everyone.
Un vaisseau Soyouz s’est arrimé à l’ISSAvec trois astronautes à son bord, un vaisseau Soyouz s’est arrimé hier à la Station spatiale internationale pour une mission qui doit durer six mois.C’est à 23h18 heure de Paris que le vaisseau Soyouz, parti avant-hier, s’est arrimé à la Station spatiale internationale (ISS) hier soir. A ce moment-là, cette dernière se trouvait à 350 kilomètres au-dessus de Rio de Janeiro au Brésil.Le vaisseau transportait trois astronautes : un Russe, un Américain et un Japonais. Leur arrivée porte à six le nombre d’habitants de la station spatiale.Tous doivent préparer l’arrivée ultime d’une navette américaine, Atlantis, qui doit s’amarrer à la station le 10 juillet, rappelle Reuters.

Post a comment Artificial intelligence (AI) Now playing: Watch this: 5:21 Sci-Tech Wellness 0 Share your voice Tags Proteins, like these shown in 3D computer models, are highly complex biological molecules. Mohammed AlQuraishi/Harvard Medical School Protein folding has been a famously difficult computing problem for decades: How do you figure out the exact structure of these massive molecules that our DNA defines? Now artificial intelligence is getting us to the answer a lot faster.Harvard Medical School biologist Mohammed AlQuraishi has used the latest machine learning technology to detect structural patterns in well-understood proteins, then apply that to other proteins.The results, while not precise enough for protein folding applications like discovering new drugs, is at least a million times faster than conventional computing techniques. And this is just a first crack at a technology that can be improved and combined with other modeling techniques.It’s an illustration that AI, though fraught with fears about effects like abetting police states or wiping out human jobs, has the potential to improve medicine, among other things.Mohammed AlQuraishi from Harvard Medical School developed an AI technique to predict how crucial biological molecules called proteins form. As his model improves, the colorful prediction gradually comes closer to the actual protein structure shown in gray. Mohammed AlQuraishi/Harvard Medical School “We now have a whole new vista from which to explore protein folding,” AlQuraishi said in a statement Wednesday. “We’ve just begun to scratch the surface.”AI today most often refers to neural network technology loosely based on human brains, and it’s revolutionized everything from voice commands and facial recognition to debugging software and turning on windshield wipers. AI models learn patterns from real-world training data, an approach that means humans don’t have to make specific instructions like trying to define what it sounds like when somebody says “Alexa, what’s the weather today?”In humans and any other form of life on Earth, DNA strands contain instructions on how to assemble amino acids into the long strings that become proteins. The laws of physics determine exactly how those strings collapse into tight bundles, with the resulting surface structures critical to protein interactions inside cells.But modeling exactly how that will happen inside a computer quickly gets difficult for bigger proteins. That means it’s hard to understand what’s going on with proteins. AlQuraishi, though, believes the AI technique could not only help this understanding but also potentially be used to engineer new proteins that perform a specific job.AlQuraishi’s results were published Wednesday in the journal Cell Systems.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korean police said Tuesday they have arrested a university design professor for forcing a former student to eat human feces and subjecting him to other cruel acts.The alleged violence and abuse began in 2013 when the ex-student was working as an employee at the professor’s non-profit organization, according to a statement from Seongnam Jungwon police station just south of Seoul.

New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Comments Share The professor and three other employees, all former students, allegedly beat the victim with a baseball bat and other weapons over what they said were professional mistakes and poor character. Two of those former students have also been arrested, police said.The defendants also placed plastic bags over the victim’s head and filled them with pepper spray and forced him to eat their feces and drink their urine from plastic bottles on 16 different occasions, police said, describing the victim as a “modern-day slave.”The victim put up with it because he hoped the professor would help him become a professor, too, according to police.Authorities did not release the names of the victim or his alleged assailants.Attempts to reach the victim were unsuccessful. Police denied an AP request to interview the professor.The professor also forced the victim to work at a restaurant and took his salary, police said.Authorities became aware of the case after getting a tip from an employee at the victim’s restaurant.The non-profit run by the professor publishes academic journals and hosts forums on topics related to design, according to police.Teachers frequently used corporal punishment to discipline South Korean students in the past, but the practice has faded dramatically in recent years.

was us We started the buggies big white Ford F-450 trucks with equipment lockers above our heads that held our packs bins on the side of the trucks that held all our other gear and captains chairs for us to sit on during the drive to the fire line The drivers revved the engines and tore out of the stations driveway The guys were amped You could feel it It reminded me of those soldiers at Stalingrad: The fire was threatening our homes our families It was time to fight My crew mate Chris and I found a gap in the brush and he went first We began burning one eye on the flames and one on the ground ahead of us We were carving a burned-out barrier to stop the flames before they reached town The fire was moving so damn fast It was 200 yards away now and the noise was building A mountain-sized lion roaring thats what it sounded like Burning embers flew through the air lighting up spot fires ahead of the fire wall I began to hear a particular sound The sound of a freight train An out-of-control wildfire that is bearing down on you makes a sound like a freight train or really a hundred freight trains shooting out steam at high pressure Not only that but each burst of sound seems to spawn three more until theres this infinitely expanding roar ripping in your ears Hotshots believe that once you hear that sound youre nearly out of time If the wildfire caught Chris and me wed either be dead or suffer 100% body burns There were no other options We ran Chris was shouting but now his voice was sucked in by the howling of the fire Our brothers were somewhere through the wall of brush but no one could hear us I saw daylight ahead and the dark flat shape of asphalt With one last grunt Chris jerked me free of the brush The air was clean and not too hot We sucked it in greedily I felt pure animal joy surging through my gut We got out of that alive That was 12 days before Yarnell and the fire that killed 19 of my brothers while I was serving as a lookout in a

Guard troops emergency wildfire training so they can help out crews that are stretched beyond their limits I’m the first to admit I’m not an expert I was a seasonal employee who saw a lot of action during a time of drought But three seasons was enough to at least show that there was a problem in how we fight wildfires nationally The system we have isn’t working period We need innovation in how we fight wildfires The hard-working men and women who fight fires need to come home at night to the people who love them I go to the Pioneers Home Cemetery in Prescott to visit the graves of my brothers when I can Not too often to be honest Its painful still more than I can describe But I love this place in a way Ive told my family I want to be buried here That was an easy call I want to be with my brothers Thats where home has been for me ever since I met them Theres no point in remembering me without remembering Eric and Jesse and Chris and Travis and the rest of the boys because without them I would have been a different man a far less honorable person Is it strange at 23-years-old to think about my burial plot Not for me Its the continuation of what I feel now I think about the guys every day; I talk to them Theres not a day goes by that I dont encounter a situation where a lesson one of the Granite Mountain guys taught me comes to mind It could be how to treat every moment with my daughter Michaela like it could be my last Do I always live up to their memories Hell no I mess up all the time But I never even had that ideal to try to reach before Now I do Those guys are with me as much as my daughter or my mother is and so I look forward to being alongside them for good Therapy has gotten me here talking through that day at Yarnell and untangling the emotions that come with it Ill never lose the horrible memories I have but I can change the way I feel about them The memorials the faces the crinkly feel of those orange body bags theyre part of me But Ive been allowed to grieve these men now Ive accepted that I couldnt have saved them no matter what I did What happened was a wildfire that ran out of control I didnt fail my brothers and they didnt abandon me Only by learning to live with what happened at Yarnell and accepting the gift that my brothers gave me can I be with the people I love Adapted from My Lost Brothers: The Untold Story

scientist says By Frankie SchembriSep 27 2018 11:30 AM Some of the deadliest mass shootings in US history including lone gunmen killing 26 people at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs Texas and 17 students and staff at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida have occurred in the past 2 years These tragedies were preventable says Garen Wintemute an emergency medicine physician at the University of California (UC) Davis Medical Center and the director of UC Davis’s Violence Prevention Research Program Wintemute has studied gun violence for more than 30 years and is one of the few researchers to approach the matter as an issue of public health He has gone undercover at gun shows to document illegal activity and worked with California lawmakers to establish gun policies Wintemute writes about his solutions to gun violence in an opinion piece published this week in The New England Journal of Medicine Science chatted with him about the unique factors behind mass shootings and which policy interventions are most effective This interview has been edited for clarity and length Q: What does it mean to approach gun violence from a public health perspective A: Firearm violence has been seen traditionally as a crime problem But gun violence is one of our leading causes of death and injury and the implications of this violence are huge in terms of the safety and health of our overall population So we treat it as we would any other major health problem We ask: Where does it come from How does it get amplified Who is at risk for developing this problem Can we learn enough to create a treatment or prevention strategy Q: How are mass shootings different from other acts of gun violence A: They are rare accounting for maybe 1% of deaths from firearm violence But they are also unique They are the one form of violence about which no one can tell a story that leaves themselves out It could happen to me It could happen to my children It could happen to my grandchildren What public mass shootings have sadly done is for the first time in history made this everyone’s problem The specific role of my article is to point out that there are some very specific things that we can do to help make these events a lot less likely to happen Garen Wintemute UC Davis Health Illustration Services Q: The first way you say we can stop mass shootings is through better background checks How do we improve them A: Twenty-two percent of all firearm transfers in the country do not involve a background check These take place over the internet at gun shows or a brokered through “friend of a friend” exchanges Some states require a background check for all transfers of firearms but most states do not and the federal government does not Comprehensive well-designed background checks as well as regular reporting by agencies of incidents that would prohibit someone from purchasing a gun would let us see the full effectiveness of this policy Q: Your second recommendation is for gun violence restraining orders What do these involve A: If a person is credibly believed to be at high and imminent risk of doing harm and has access to firearms these laws allow law enforcement or family members to go to a judge and present the evidence just as they would in any other court proceeding The judge can then issue an order that authorizes law enforcement to recover firearms from this individual for a defined period of time typically just 2 or 3 weeks These orders if properly used would not just prevent individual tragedies but could probably drop rates of violence altogether because it’s so common that a future shooter puts out unmistakable signals of intent to do harm This can mean telling hospital staff friends or family that they’re planning on hurting themselves or others It can mean unusual patterns of purchasing weapons like purchasing several firearms in a short time span Here in California I am aware of two mass shootings that did not occur because the intended shooters said things like “I’m going to shoot up a school” which came to the attention of law enforcement Q: Do you ever encounter resistance to your work because of the political debate around gun control A: There’s always controversy with this sort of work but to me the common ground far outweighs it One of the policy proposals that is widely seen as highly controversial is to require a background check for all purchases of firearms More than 90% of the population supports that measure but so do more than 80% of gun owners and more than 70% of self-identified members of the National Rifle Association A mistake that is often made—it’s made by the public it’s made by the media—is to pay attention to the extremes and ignore the fact that the country has basically made up its mind on this one We just need our leadership to represent the opinions of the people and not the opinions of the extremes Q: What are you going to study next A: We’re conducting a true randomized trial of an intervention here in California that identifies people who legally purchased firearms in the past but have just become prohibited from owning firearms They’ve just been convicted of a violent crime or they’ve just been served with a domestic violence restraining order or they’ve just been hospitalized for a psychiatric emergency related to dangerousness to self or others The intervention in California identifies those people then puts law enforcement officers at the front door to recover the firearms Intuitively it sounds like a good idea but no one knows whether that process is effective in reducing rates in violence We are collaborating with enforcement agencies on a randomized trial that involves almost the entire state This is the same process used throughout medical research to test how effective a given treatment is—only this time the treatment is a firearm policy BERLIN (Reuters) – Turkey barred at least two European lawmakers from entering the country to participate in an election observation mission prompting warnings about the transparency and fairness of presidential and parliamentary elections on Sunday President Tayyip Erdogan is widely expected to win re-election on Sunday after which the presidency will be given sweeping new executive powers Campaigning has already been marred by violence and

for Turkey when he was informed about the ban The German foreign ministry said it was seeking to have the ban lifted Sweden’s foreign ministry said Jabar Amin a lawmaker from the Greens party had also been refused entry Amin had told Swedish news agency TT that he was arrested on arrival at Istanbul’s Ataturk airport and his passport was confiscated "We have just recently been informed that Jabar Amin has been denied entry into Turkey We have raised the issue with Turkish representatives and demand an explanation" said Gunnar Vrang a spokesman for the Swedish foreign ministry Hunko had been
