US Supreme Court will hear Montana arsenic cleanup case

BUTTE, Mont. — The U.S. Supreme Court will decide whether residents of two Montana communities can continue their decade-long effort to get the Atlantic Richfield Co. to pay for a more thorough cleanup of arsenic left on properties after a century of copper smelting.The Montana Supreme Court ruled in December 2017 for the residents of Opportunity and Crackerville.They sued in 2008 seeking to force Arco to reduce arsenic levels to the area’s normal level, 25 parts per million.The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said cleanup was required when arsenic levels were above an “acceptable” level of 250 parts per million.Arco appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, arguing federal law prohibited state lawsuits from interfering with an ongoing cleanup.The Montana Standard reports the justices agreed Monday to hear Arco’s appeal.___This version corrects that cleanup was ordered when contamination was above 250 parts per million, not that cleanup was ordered to level of 250 parts per million.___Information from: The Montana Standard, http://www.mtstandard.comThe Associated Press read more

International Criminal Court officials meet delegation from Ugandan rebel group

10 March 2008Officials from the International Criminal Court (ICC) met today with a delegation from the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), the Ugandan rebel group whose leadership is under indictment for war crimes and crimes against humanity allegedly committed during its protracted conflict with Government forces in the African country. Officials from the International Criminal Court (ICC) met today with a delegation from the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), the Ugandan rebel group whose leadership is under indictment for war crimes and crimes against humanity allegedly committed during its protracted conflict with Government forces in the African country. The LRA delegation and the officials with the ICC registry discussed procedural issues related to the legal representation of the four men from the rebel group who face arrest warrants, according to a media statement issued by the court in The Hague, where it is based. They also discussed standards for the filing of documents and materials with the court’s registry, a neutral organ which is responsible for providing support, assistance and information to defence counsel. In October 2005 the ICC’s pre-trial chamber unsealed arrest warrants against Joseph Kony, Vincent Otti, Okot Odhiambo, Dominic Ongwen and Raska Lukwiya for alleged crimes committed since July 2002 in Uganda. Mr. Lukwiya has since been confirmed dead and the proceedings against him discontinued. Last week ICC Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo declined to meet with the same delegation of the LRA. Ugandan Government forces have been fighting the LRA in the north of the country since the mid-1980s and during that conflict the rebels have been notorious for their human rights abuses. Last month representatives of both Kampala and the LRA signed a series of agreements, including a ceasefire, that could lead to a permanent accord ending the deadly war. read more

Cyprus still requires comprehensive settlement Annan says

In a new report to the Security Council, Mr. Annan says the rejection of a settlement plan put to referenda on the island represents “another missed opportunity” to resolve the Cyprus problem.While noting that the decision of the Greek Cypriots to vote no on the plan must be respected, he calls it “a major setback.”The decision of the Turkish Cypriots, who voted yes, is to be welcomed, the Secretary-General says. “The Turkish Cypriot vote has undone any rationale for pressuring and isolating them,” he observes.Mr. Annan expresses hope that Council members can lead the effort to eliminate unnecessary barriers against Turkish Cypriots “not for the purposes of affording recognition or assisting secession, but as a positive contribution to the goal of reunification.”A lasting solution, he asserts, requires more than a comprehensive and carefully balanced peace plan. “It also needs bold and determined political leadership on both sides in the island, as well as in Greece and Turkey, all in place at the same time, ready to negotiate with determination and to convince their people of the need to compromise.”Although the plan, having been rejected by the Greek Cypriots, is legally null and void, its acceptance by the Turkish Cypriot electorate “means that the shape of any final settlement to reunify Cyprus would appear to be set,” he says.Cypriots from all walks of life who worked with courage and determination to achieve a settlement must continue their efforts, he emphasizes. “The prospects for the reunification of their country now rest primarily in their hands.”In New York today, Mr. Annan conveyed these views to Tassos Papadopoulos, the President of Cyprus, a UN spokesman said after their meeting.”The Secretary-General said that after the decisive rejection of the plan by the Greek Cypriots, it would be for that side to explain fully to the Turkish Cypriots, the UN and the rest of the world how they see the way forward,” spokesman Fred Eckhard said.Mr. Annan also appealed to Mr. Papadopoulos to seize the initiative in responding positively to his appeal for States to eliminate unnecessary barriers to the development of the Turkish Cypriots. “This will signal that the Greek Cypriots wish to reach out to their Turkish Cypriot compatriots in the north, and assist them and help facilitate the eventual goal of reunification,” Mr. Eckhard said. read more

Japans Nikkei surges past 13000 mark after BOJ announces massive monetary easing

Japan’s Nikkei surges past 13,000 mark after BOJ announces massive monetary easing BANGKOK – Japan’s benchmark stock index surged to its highest level in more than four years Friday, its second straight day of big gains after the central bank announced aggressive action to lift the economy out of a prolonged slump. European stocks fell in early trading.The Bank of Japan unveiled plans Thursday to pump huge amounts of money into the financial system in order to spur price rises, spending and borrowing in an economy that has stagnated for years. The central bank said it wanted to double the money supply and achieve a 2 per cent inflation target within about two years.The sweeping shift in monetary policy came as a surprise to analysts, even though the BOJ’s new governor Haruhiko Kuroda had vowed to do whatever necessary to break Japan’s economy out of its deflationary malaise. Falling prices have stunted growth in the world’s No. 3 economy for the past two decades.“The size of monetary easing announced yesterday far exceeded expectations,” said analysts at DBS Bank Ltd. in Singapore in a commentary.The BOJ’s plans include buying $530 billion a year in government bonds. Kuroda described the scale of monetary stimulus as “large beyond reason,” but said the inflation target would remain out of reach if the central bank stuck to incremental steps.Mark Williams, chief Asia economist at Capital Economics, said that the BOJ’s credibility rests on the success of the new direction the bank is taking.“Markets are giving it the benefit of the doubt for now. But if the broad monetary aggregates and inflation don’t show signs of a shift, the new-found trust in the capacities of the BoJ will rapidly fade,” Williams said in a written commentary.The Nikkei 225 in Tokyo closed 1.6 per cent higher at 12,833.64, its highest finish since Sept. 1, 2008. Earlier in the day it surged more than 3 per cent, breaking the 13,000 level.The benchmark has soared 25 per cent this year, rejuvenated by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s election in December and enthusiasm for his economic and monetary program that calls for a massive expansion of the money supply to create inflation and jolt Japan out of its slump.The central bank’s announcement dragged down the yen, giving a boost to shares of Japan’s powerhouse manufacturers. A cheaper currency makes Japanese goods less costly overseas and raises the value of repatriated profits. Nissan Motor Co. jumped 6 per cent. Ricoh Co. advanced 6.1 per cent. Heavy-equipment maker Komatsu soared 7.6 per cent. Japanese banks also benefited. Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group gained 5.9 per cent.The dollar rose to 96.20 yen from 96.13 yen late Thursday. The dollar was at about 92.80 before the BOJ’s two-day policy meeting ended with its dramatic announcements Thursday and before Abe’s Dec. 16 election was trading around 80 yen.In early European trading, Britain’s FTSE 100 fell 0.8 per cent to 6,296.60. Germany’s DAX slipped 0.2 per cent to 7,804.95. France’s CAC lost 0.2 per cent to 3,719.40.Wall Street also appeared headed for a lower opening ahead of the release of the U.S. government’s employment report for March. Dow Jones industrial futures fell 0.1 per cent to 14,510. S&P 500 futures lost 0.2 per cent to 1,551.30.Stock markets in Asia outside of Japan sagged.Hong Kong’s Hang Seng tumbled 2.7 per cent to 21,726.90. Analysts said the fall reflected some nervousness about a recent outbreak of deadly bird flu in China. Six people have died and authorities have ordered the slaughter of all poultry at a Shanghai market where the virus was detected. The news hurt tourism and travel-related shares. Hong Kong-listed Air China plunged 9.8 per cent and China Southern Airlines sank 8.5 per cent.South Korea’s Kospi dropped 1.6 per cent to 1,927.23, dragged down by political jitters over the latest tensions with Pyongyang. Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 lost 0.5 per cent to 4,891.40 as investors took profits after recent rallies.Benchmark oil for May delivery was down 7 cents to $93.19 per barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract fell $1.19 to finish at $93.26 per barrel on the Nymex on Thursday.The euro fell to $1.2925 from $1.2939 late Thursday in New York.___Follow Pamela Sampson on Twitter at http://twitter.com/pamelasampson by Pamela Sampson, The Associated Press Posted Apr 5, 2013 1:29 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

DEM Solutions releases EDEM 251 software

first_imgDEM Solutions released EDEM 2.5.1 software with a new programmable interface to enable bi-directional coupling with Multibody Dynamics (MBD) simulation. The enhanced interfacing capability extends the EDEM simulation environment for customers using other computer-aided-engineering (CAE) tools, particularly those using structural mechanics simulation software such as structural finite element analysis (FEA) and MBD in the design of heavy equipment and machinery critical to industries such as mining, off-road construction, forestry and agriculture.“The Multibody Dynamics Coupling Interface is important to customers who design machinery that handles or processes bulk materials, particularly where the dynamic loading from bulk materials is important in the design of the equipment components and/or the hydraulic control system,” stated Dr John Favier, CEO of DEM Solutions. “The use of structural mechanics software such as FEA and MBD is essential for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) for effective design of their equipment. Simulation of the interaction of equipment with the material it is designed to handle in real world conditions significantly enhances the capability of these CAE tools  and enables engineers to design equipment with higher performance over the equipment service life. Employing coupled DEM-MDB simulation can also significantly reduce development costs and time-to-market by reducing reliance on field testing and use of empirical design rules when simulating transient loads from bulk materials.”EDEM already allows coupling to structural FEA software through sharing of common surface meshes, enabling simulation of the structural dynamics of equipment subject to transient loading from bulk materials. These coupled models are implemented using EDEM APIs and enable the structural response to transient surface loads to be computed using both static or dynamic FEA models.As well as enabling the development of couplings between EDEM and 3rd party MBD software, the Multibody Dynamics Coupling Interface also provides a dedicated, programmable interface that can be used to implement user-defined equipment kinematics or rigid-body dynamics models of equipment responding to dynamic loading from contacting bulk material.Favier continued to say “We see demand for this enhanced capability from OEMs designing capital intensive machinery, including Mining equipment such as long-wall shearers, continuous miners, and drag line excavators, Off-road Construction, Forestry and Agricultural equipment such as back-hoes, graders, diggers, bucket loaders and grain harvesters and comminution equipment such as crushers and HPGR mills used in Cement and Mineral Processing as well as attrition and media mills used in size reduction and processing of particulates.”“With the addition of the Multibody Dynamics Coupling Interface, EDEM now has the interfaces and functionality to couple with all of the major CAE technologies, such as Structural FEA, MBD, CFD and EMAG – enabling a more integrated and seamless multi-physics simulation capability for engineering design and analysis in equipment manufacturing. Essentially, DEM Solutions can provide EDEM software for use on its own and for co-simulation with the majority of other commonly used CAE tools,” added Favier.last_img read more

Les alligators nhésitent pas à se manger entre eux

first_imgLes alligators n’hésitent pas à se manger entre euxUne étude menée par des chercheurs américains en Floride estime que 6 à 7% des jeunes alligators sont victimes de cannibalisme. Un destin cruel qui aiderait leur population à rester stable.Des chercheurs de la Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission se sont penchés sur le cannibalisme chez les alligators. Après avoir constaté cette tendance, ils ont voulu savoir combien d’entre eux avaient été dévorés par leurs semblables dans le lac Orange de Floride, peu profond et marécageux. À lire aussiUlcère gastroduodénal : définition, symptômes, causes, traitements, de quoi s’agit-il ?Ainsi, entre 1981 et 1987, 267 estomacs d’alligators adultes, tués par des chasseurs, ont été examinés. Les chercheurs étaient à la recherche de marqueurs ou balises (tags), qui avaient été placés sur chaque alligator, pour savoir combien avaient fini leurs jours dans les estomacs de ces carnivores.Il se trouve que 33 des estomacs contenaient des balises, pour un total de 56 balises. Un alligator affamé en particulier avait mangé au moins 14 alligators. Les autres alligators, eux, avaient une ou deux balises tout au plus dans leur estomac.En examinant les données associées à chaque balise, il est apparu que 91% des victimes de cannibalisme avaient moins de trois ans.L’étape suivante a consisté à comprendre comment ce petit échantillon se traduirait sur toute la population d’alligators du lac Orange. Pour ce faire, les chercheurs ont eu besoin de savoir combien de temps les balises restaient fixées dans les estomacs des alligators avant d’être excrétées. Ils ont alors nourri 10 alligators avec cinq balises chacun, et pour simuler la digestion naturelle, celles-ci étaient attachées à des pieds d’alligators déjà morts.Au cours des 588 jours suivants, les 10 alligators ont été examinés aux rayons X, pour savoir si les balises étaient toujours dans leur estomac. Il s’est avéré que celles-ci étaient restées collées : à la fin de l’expérience, 76% des tags étaient toujours présents.En prenant en compte la taille de la population des alligators du lac Orange et la probabilité de trouver des preuves de cannibalisme (sous la forme de balises) dans leurs estomacs, les chercheurs ont estimé que 6 à 7% des jeunes alligators finissaient dévorés.Ce taux peut varier pour d’autres lacs et marécages, selon les chercheurs, car la prévalence de cannibalisme dépend de l’abondance d’autres aliments dans l’environnement.Avoir ces données est quelque chose d’important pour ces chercheurs, qui ont publié leur article dans la revue Herpetologica. Cela permet aux responsables de la faune de comprendre la dynamique des populations en vue de fixer des objectifs pour la protection et la chasse des alligators.Le 4 juin 2011 à 20:14 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Wilmington CARES Shawsheen Tech Rob Surette Partner To Create Ellen DeGeneres 14716Crayon Masterpiece

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Be kind.That’s the simple, yet powerful message artist Rob Surette was trying to convey with his latest project, which involved students from Wilmington Public Schools and Shawsheen Tech.“I spent three joy-filled days with over 100 super kids from grades 4-12 in Wilmington from the Shawsheen Valley Technical High School, Wilmington West CARES program, and the Wilmington Middle School,” said artist Rob Surette. “They were among my favorite kids ever…. They all has so much enthusiasm and respect for this project and they soaked up my positive messages like sponges.”Wilmington students were able to participate in Surette’s artist-in-residence program thanks to the efforts of Shawsheen Tech Guidance Counselor Angela Caira and West CARES Site Coordinator Kerin Osgood. The two formed a partnership six years ago where Shawsheen Tech Orientation Leaders help educate Wilmington’s youth on bullying prevention and mental health.“The project’s mission was to create a super eye-catching masterpiece together, which would stop people in their tracks and deliver the powerful message — “Be Kind,” which Ellen Degeneres is known for saying all the time,” explained Surette.“Ellen exemplifies the significance of being kind,” added Angela Caira. “She closes out her show every afternoon by reminding viewers to be kind to everyone… What better person to incorporate into our message of being kind?”The masterpiece, which will soon be on display at Wilmington Middle School, consists of 14,768 crayons and weights nearly 200 pounds. Surette spent more than 100 hours completing the project after students began working on it. Students were unaware of what the finish product looked like until the unveiling ceremony on Tuesday, May 28.Watch the unveiling, courtesy of Wilmington Community Television, below:——(NOTE: The cover photo is from the Wilmington CARES Facebook page.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Your Mac could be hijacked through major security flaw in Zoom conferencing

In a statement, Zoom said the local web server is a workaround for Apple’s Safari 12 web browser, introduced last September.”Zoom installs a local web server on Mac devices running the Zoom client,” the statement reads. “This is a workaround to an architecture change introduced in Safari 12 that requires a user to accept launching Zoom before every meeting. The local web server automatically accepts the peripheral access on behalf of the user to avoid this extra click before joining a meeting. We feel that this is a legitimate solution to a poor user experience, enabling our users to have seamless, one-click-to-join meetings, which is our key product differentiator.”In regard to a potential denial of service attack, Zoom says it has no record of such a weakness being exploited, and says it fixed that security flaw in May. Along with the likes of Slack, Uber and Pinterest, Zoom is one of many tech companies to go public in 2019. It raised $356 million upon its April 18 IPO, with its shares trading as high as $66 on that day. The stock has risen since, currently sitting at around $90.70.

On Monday, security researcher Jonathan Leitschuh gave Mac users another reason to fret over their webcams — there’s a security flaw in the Zoom video-conferencing app.Zoom is most notable for its click-to-join feature, through which clicking on a browser link takes you directly to a video meeting in Zoom’s app. But Leitschuh in a Medium post explained that he months ago discovered Zoom achieves this in insecure ways, allowing websites to join you to a call as well as activating your webcam without your permission.He added that this would allow any webpage to denial-of-service a Mac by repeatedly joining you to an invalid call. Uninstalling the Zoom app from your Mac isn’t enough to fix the problem, either. Zoom achieves its click-to-join function by installing a web server on your computer — which can reinstall Zoom without your permission.”If you’ve ever installed the Zoom client and then uninstalled it, you still have a localhost web server on your machine that will happily re-install the Zoom client for you,” Leitschuh writes, “without requiring any user interaction on your behalf besides visiting a webpage.

Report To Army Finds Blast From Some Weapons May Put Shooters Brain

first_img Share Sgt. Aaron Patterson/3rd Marine Division/DVIDSU.S. Marines fire the Carl Gustav rocket system during live-fire training last October. With each firing, the shooter’s brain is exposed to pulses of high pressure air emanating from the explosion that travel faster than the speed of sound.Military personnel may be endangering their own brains when they operate certain shoulder-fired weapons, according to an Army-commissioned report released Monday.The report, from the Center for a New American Security, says these bazooka-like weapons pose a hazard because they are powered by an explosion just inches from the operator’s head.“When you fire it, the pressure wave feels like getting hit in the face,” says Paul Scharre, a former Army Ranger who directs the technology and national security program at the center. Scharre is a co-author of the center’s report: Protecting Warfighters from Blast Injury.The report looks at a range of injuries caused by blast waves — pulses of high pressure air that emanate from an explosion and travel faster than the speed of sound.During the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, military officials recognized that the blast wave from a roadside bomb could damage a person’s brain without leaving any visible sign of injury. And in 2010, the Pentagon issued a memo outlining steps to improve care of troops exposed to these explosions.Since then, there’s been growing evidence that blasts from weapons like the Carl Gustav recoilless rifle and the AT4 anti-tank weapon can also affect the brain.Cpl. Devon Tindle/III Marine Expeditionary Force/DVIDSSgt. John Wagley fires an AT4 anti-tank missile during a training session at Camp Fuji in Japan. Studies find that some who fire these weapons repeatedly have short-term problems with memory and thinking. It’s still not clear, scientists say, whether those temporary changes can lead to permanent deficits.“If you’re looking at a large anti-tank rocket that a soldier would carry on his or her shoulder, that’s now a pretty large explosion — and it’s happening right next to your head,” Scharre says.Studies show that some service members who fire these weapons repeatedly have short-term problems with memory and thinking. What’s not clear is whether those temporary changes can lead to permanent deficits.“If you’re exposed to these weapons throughout the course of your military career, this might have some subtle and insidious long-term effect that doesn’t materialize until later,” Scharre says.The military is studying that possibility, and the new report is a part of that effort. But a definitive answer about the risks from firing weapons is probably many years off.The report says the military should make changes now, despite the uncertainty.One recommendation is much wider use of devices known as blast gauges, which measure the intensity of blast waves. The gauges are typically about the size of a wristwatch and service members attach them to their shoulders and helmet.“Every service member who is in a position where he or she might be exposed to blast waves should be wearing these devices,” Scharre says. “And we need to be recording that data, putting it in their record and then putting it in a database for medical studies.”Authors of the report also recommend steps to reduce service members’ exposure to blast waves during training exercises. For example, they say, the military should reduce the maximum number of times a person can fire certain weapons in a single day, and over several days.The military should also look into a new type of helmet that’s designed to protect the brain from blast waves, the report says.The findings of the analysis are no surprise to Kyle Sims, a former Special Forces medic who helped deploy blast gauges in Afghanistan.Sims realized something disturbing when he started looking into research on brain damage among football players who’d taken repeated blows to the head.“It’s not that one time that the guy got knocked unconscious,” Sims says. “It’s the 500 times that the guy got hit prior to that.”Sims is especially worried about service members involved in training others to fire heavy weapons. These people often spend entire days on a range where the weapons are being fired.One retired officer told Sims about a day of training when he’d been exposed to more than 100 blasts from anti-tank weapons.“When he got done talking, I said, ‘Well, don’t tell me — let me guess. At the end of the day you felt nauseous, you had a headache, you felt tired [and] all you wanted to do was take a Motrin, lay down and go to bed.’ He’s like, ‘Yeah.’ And I was like, ‘Well, that’s typical post-concussive symptoms there, buddy.’ “The military should start treating personnel exposed to blast waves the way it treats people who work around hazardous radiation, Sims says. In other words, set a limit to how much blast exposure a person can receive during their military career.“If there was a hazard in the civilian world for workers to be exposed to blast overpressure, we would have had a standard in place decades ago,” he says.An Army spokesperson tells NPR the military is reviewing the report and will offer a response and recommendations.Copyright 2018 NPR.

Dozens of new ultradiffuse galaxies discovered in Abell 2744

first_img Citation: Dozens of new ultra-diffuse galaxies discovered in Abell 2744 (2017, January 4) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2017-01-dozens-ultra-diffuse-galaxies-abell.html © 2017 Phys.org UDGs are extremely-low-density galaxies. The largest UDGs have sizes similar the Milky Way but have only about one percent as many stars as our home galaxy. The mystery of UDGs is still baffling scientists as they try explain why these faint but large galaxies are not ripped apart by the tidal field of their host clusters. Furthermore, it is not clear what fraction of UDGs are “failed” giant luminous galaxies, “inflated dwarfs,” or some other phenomenon.Abell 2744 is a giant galaxy cluster located nearly 4 billion light years away in the Sculptor constellation. It is one of the most massive and most disturbed galaxy clusters known to date. Its intracluster light fraction is high and its stellar population consistent with the disruption of luminous galaxies, which makes it an excellent location to search for UDGs.That is why a team of researchers led by Steven Janssens of the University of Toronto, Canada, has investigated Abell 2744 using data obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Frontier Fields (FF) program. FF is known for producing the deepest images to date of galaxy clusters and gravitational lensing. The analysis of FF data allowed the astronomers to distinguish dozens of new UDGs in this giant galaxy cluster.”We report the discovery of a large population of ultra-diffuse galaxies in the massive galaxy cluster Abell 2744 (z= 0.308) as observed by the Hubble Frontier Fields program,” the researchers wrote in the paper.As a result, the team detected 76 new UDGs—41 in the cluster field and 35 in the parallel field. They also estimated the total number of UDGs that Abell 2744 contains. According to the paper, given the fact that the analyzed data from the observations samples only a small portion of the galaxy cluster, there should be approximately 2,100 ultra-diffuse galaxies in Abell 2744. The researchers noted that this is 10 times the number of UDGs that exist in a similar cluster known as Abell 1656 (or Coma Cluster).”Abell 2744 hosts an estimated 2133±613 UDGs, 10 times the number in Coma,” the paper reads.The research also allowed the scientists to estimate the number of ultra-compact dwarf (UCD) galaxies in Abell 2744. According to their calculations, there are about 385 UCDs in the galaxy cluster.The researchers concluded that some UCDs in Abell 2744 may have once been nuclei or satellites of infalling UDGs, noting that the latter are ultimately destroyed by tidal forces. “As UDGs fall in and dissolve (and, presumably, blend into the intra-cluster light), they leave behind a residue of unbound, but long-lived UCDs,” the team wrote. (Phys.org)—Astronomers have found a total of 76 new ultra-diffuse galaxies (UDGs) in the massive galaxy cluster designated Abell 2744 (also known as Pandora’s Cluster). The discovery updates the current census of galaxies in this cluster and could help better understand the nature of UDGs in general. The findings were presented in a paper published Dec. 30 on arXiv.org. Explore further More information: Ultra-diffuse and Ultra-compact Galaxies in the Frontier Fields Cluster Abell 2744, arXiv:1701.00011 [astro-ph.GA] arxiv.org/abs/1701.00011AbstractWe report the discovery of a large population of Ultra-diffuse Galaxies (UDGs) in the massive galaxy cluster Abell 2744 (z=0.308) as observed by the Hubble Frontier Fields program. Since this cluster is ~5 times more massive than Coma, our observations allow us to extend 0.7 dex beyond the high-mass end of the relationship between UDG abundance and cluster mass reported by van der Burg et al. 2016. Using the same selection criteria as van der Burg et al. 2016, A2744 hosts an estimated 2133 +/- 613 UDGs, ten times the number in Coma. As noted by Lee & Jang 2016, A2744 contains numerous unresolved compact objects, which those authors identified predominantly as globular clusters. However, these objects have luminosities that are more consistent with ultra-compact dwarf (UCD) galaxies. The abundances of both UCDs and UDGs scale with cluster mass as a power law with a similar exponent, although UDGs and UCDs have very different radial distributions within the cluster. The radial surface density distribution of UCDs rises sharply toward the cluster centre, while the surface density distribution of the UDG population is essentially flat. Together, these observations hint at a picture where some UCDs in A2744 may have once been associated with infalling UDGs. As UDGs fall in and dissolve, they leave behind a residue of unbound ultra-compact dwarfs. Hubble Frontier Fields view of Abell 2744. Credit: NASA, ESA, and J. Lotz, M. Mountain, A.

Gordon Lightfoot on starring in a legacy documen

first_imgGordon Lightfoot on starring in a ‘legacy’ documentary about himself by David Friend, The Canadian Press Posted May 21, 2019 6:00 am PDT TORONTO — Gordon Lightfoot didn’t need much convincing when filmmakers approached him about a documentary on his prolific music career.The iconic Canadian folk singer-songwriter figured their timing probably couldn’t be any better.“I’m still walking around,” the 80-year-old performer says matter of factly, with a smirk, as he sits between the two documentarians in his Toronto living room.“So let’s just go ahead and let’s do it.”And the way Lightfoot tells it, that’s how “Gordon Lightfoot: If You Could Read My Mind” came to be — though its filmmakers Martha Kehoe and Joan Tosoni, who spent eight years trying to make the documentary happen, tell a different story.The pair were locked into sanding Lightfoot’s career down to a tight 90 minutes, leaving scant room for his childhood, rise to fame, struggles with alcohol, tabloid relationships — oh, and his colossal influence on a generation of musicians.“We struggled with it, and we knew we would,” Kehoe says.“You can’t make the definitive film about somebody like this. Someone could always come along and do a different film… and you know, we had the feeling that we’re women, we’re the age we are… we know Gord… We felt we could just make the movie that we would make.”When the documentary opens across Canada in the coming weeks, Lightfoot’s fans will certainly have strong opinions about what made the cut and what didn’t.The musician’s children are virtually left out of the picture, while the abdominal aortic aneurysm that nearly killed him in 2002 goes unmentioned. But the film uncovers other aspects of the musician that he usually keeps reserved.It opens with Lightfoot throwing criticism at his early song “For Lovin’ Me,” a philandering anthem covered by Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan and others, that he now considers tactless and unacceptable for his concert set lists.Later, a slightly agitated Lightfoot spills the beans on “The Circle is Small,” a song he acknowledges is inspired by the “apartment hopping” he participated in while having affairs with women during the 1970s in downtown Toronto.“I didn’t have to tell them everything,” Lightfoot says of the stories he shared with the filmmakers. “I mean, you’ve gotta put enough in there to at least make it interesting.”It’s those “golden nuggets” Kehoe says were difficult to pry out of Lightfoot, who saves his deepest revelations for his music. After Lightfoot leaves the room for another interview, she explains how intensely private he could be during interviews.“He would say, ‘I don’t even know why I’m doing this film.’ And I said, ‘Gord, it’s not really for you, unfortunately,’” she adds.“I had said to him, ‘We really need you to be honest with us. This is your legacy project.’”Lightfoot understandably doesn’t spend much time dwelling on the bigger questions of his legacy, possibly because in many ways he’s still building it each day. He’s in the midst of a U.S. tour that runs until late June.After that, he’ll put the finishing touches on his first album in 15 years. Much of the material was created by Lightfoot in late 2001 and early 2002 before he suffered health setbacks that complicated the release of his 2004 album “Harmony.”He largely swore off writing new material in the years that followed, though Lightfoot says rediscovering “half a dozen songs” while cleaning out his office gave him new inspiration. He’s confident the album will be released by early next year.“When I was younger, I always felt that I was really not ready for prime time,” Lightfoot says.“I felt like I was too callow, I didn’t like the way I spoke. I was in a feature movie and I didn’t like the way I acted. It took me a long time to come to terms with that.”His perspective has changed in recent years, he adds, and “everything is just up.” He’s pleased with his band’s live performances, and as he sees it, their comradery on the stage is inspiring.“We’re all sports-minded,” he said. “We’re like a team trying to improve itself more.” Canadian musician Gordon Lightfoot strums his guitar as he poses alongside co-directors of the documentary ‘Gordon Lightfoot: If You Could Read My Mind’, Martha Keho, left, and Joan Tosoni, right, in Lightfoot’s Toronto home on Thursday, April 25, 2019.

Coop receives two binding offers from investors Update 2

first_imgCyprus’s second largest lender, the state-owned Cooperative Central Bank (CCB), said on Monday that it had received proposals for the acquisition of its operations from two prospective buyers.Hellenic Bank, the third largest Cypriot bank, said that it was among the bidders.“The proposals are now under review by the bank’s senior management working closely with Citigroup Global Markets Limited as exclusive financial advisor to CCB,” the Co-op said on Monday, after the deadline for submission of binding offers expired. “We anticipate that the board of directors will meet as part of that review to consider the proposals and will provide further information at the appropriate time.”The Cyprus News Agency reported that the US-based Apollo Capital Management was the other bidder.In a laconic statement on the website of the Cyprus Stock Exchange, Hellenic said that it was participating in the tender initiated by the Co-op on March 19, and that it submitted an offer.“The company will, to the extent required by applicable laws and regulations, keep the investors informed of any developments on this matter,” Hellenic Bank added.In April, the government – which bailed out the CCB with two capital injections of €1.5bn and €175m in 2014 and 2015 and owns more than 99 per cent of its stock – issued bonds worth €2.4bn to the Co-op and deposited €2.5bn in government funds at the lender in an attempt to soothe depositor concerns over the bank’s solvency. These concerns had triggered significant cash withdrawals in previous months.In 2013 when the twin banking a fiscal crisis culminated into the loss of €8bn in deposits, depositors at Bank of Cyprus saw half of their uninsured funds converted to equity while those at the Cyprus Popular Bank lost all their deposits in excess of €100,000.The Co-op, the product of successive mergers of mostly poorly managed local cooperative saving banks, has made very slow progress towards reducing its non-performing loans stock.In September, the bank’s delinquent loan portfolio stood at €6.7bn or almost 59 per cent of the total. While the bank has not published its financial results for the whole of 2017, it said in December that it had meanwhile reduced its bad loans stock to €6.5bn.Last year, the government shelved its plans to hand over up to 25 per cent of the Co-op’s stock to its customers and depositors after the Central Bank of Cyprus intervened. The bank also scrapped its initial plan to seek a listing on the Cyprus Stock Exchange.Economist and former banker Marios Clerides who served as the Co-op’s managing director until mid-2015, said that he was encouraged, but would reserve judgement over the bank’s two bids.“It’s better to have to interested buyers,” he said in a telephone interview. “If you have only one, it is easy to be taken advantage of in negotiations.”One the other hand, he added, they are both seeking to acquire distressed assets at a low cost.You May LikeCar Insurance | Search AdsThe Cost of Car Insurance in Rowland Heights Might Surprise YouCar Insurance | Search AdsUndoWatch DistroTVWatch Flour Power on DistroTV.
