The Grand Cape Mount County Health Team (CHT) has reported 14 deaths and 75 persons quarantined for allegedly coming into direct contact with suspected Ebola patients in the area.The report says that from January 1 to 6, the CHT recorded 14 deaths, which took place in Tienii, Gbesseh, Jorjoama and Camp #3 in Tewor District, where the virus is said to be prevalent.Mr. Samuel Zayzay, Surveillance Officer for the county, gave the troubling report at the County Ebola Taskforce coordination meeting held in Robertsport last Wednesday, according to information reaching the Daily Observer.Meanwhile, Imam Mohammed A. Paasewe, County Superintendent, also disclosed that local authorities in collaboration with the CHT, national and international partners have set up Ebola awareness and prevention measures to fight the virus.In a related development, the Assistant Health Minister Tolbert Nyenswah said the government had sent a six-man technical team to the county to beef up the strength of the local Ebola Taskforce in eradicating the virus from the county.He said government’s decision to dispatch the team to the county was because of the constant outbreak of new Ebola cases there and the need for greater efforts to curb the virus.The six-man team will work with the CHT and local and international partners in fighting the further spread of the virus.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
The Women Civil Society Post-Millennium Development Goals Steering Committee has called on the Liberian Government, through the Gender Minister Julia Duncan Cassell, to take strong action at a global level to ensure that the Post-2015 Development Framework has the rights of all women and girls at heart.The Women NGOs secretariat is a national network of over nine women civil society organizations established in October 2012 with the objective of giving women a voice and advancing their issues in the ongoing discourses about framing a global agenda to replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The network has member organizations including the Liberia Women Media Action Committee (LIWOMAC) in Liberia, as well as others in Ghana, Kenya and the United Kingdom.According to a letter written to the Gender Minister, the Network recognized and welcomed the Liberian Government’s participation in the Post-2015 negotiations, as well as efforts made over the past years to achieve gender equality and women’s empowerment through the adoption and implementation of the African Union Protocol.“In this regard,” wrote Marpue M. Speare and T. Estella Nelson, Chairperson and Liaison, respectively, on behalf of the Steering Committee, “we want to urge you to continue your support for women’s rights especially as the negotiations for the Post-2015 framework enter the crucial, final year.”Specifically, they are calling on the Liberian Government to raise three cardinal issues: the need for a standalone goal on gender equality and women’s rights; targeted action to tackle violence against women and girls; and for Gender equality and women’s rights to be mainstreamed across the new framework’s goals, targets and indicators, particularly health and education.The group observed that it is widely recognized that the current MDGs failed to fully address gender inequality, for instance by omitting to include a target on violence against women and girls. “It is imperative that the international community learns from this failure and ensures the new framework comprehensively addresses women’s human rights and gender equality,” the Committee maintains. Stating that targeted action to tackle violence against women and girls should be a target to prevent and eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls; and in order to ensure the target is fully implemented, the Committee insists there should be indicators that measure: states’ capability to protect survivors and prevent and respond to violence, the objective situation regarding levels of violence as well as perceptions in society about violence.The issue of gender equality and women’s rights to be mainstreamed across the new framework’s goals, targets and indicators, particularly health and education, also failed to consider the safety of girls in school, teenage pregnancy, risk encountered by rural girls while traveling to school and quality of education (which compasses teacher quality and compensation, rural-urban disparity and income inequality). It therefore failed to address the spectrum of challenges girls face in accessing education.“Regarding MDG 4 on reducing maternal and child mortality we have seen improvements due to efforts by the government and its partners to improve the health sector,” the Committee said. “However, inadequate infrastructure and low capacity in obstetric care services remain a major threat to the safety of women giving birth in Liberia.“Diseases in our society also disproportionately affect women. For example, the vast majority of those who’ve died since the outbreak of the Ebola Virus in our society are women.”According to the Steering Committee, efforts to achieve gender equality in the new framework will only be successful if gender is mainstreamed across goals, targets and indicators – particularly those on health and education.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Armenian-American groups also cheered the news. “Senator Durbin is very committed to human rights issues,” said Bryan Ardouny, executive director of the Armenian Assembly of America. “The resolution continues to build momentum.” Armenians contend the Ottoman Empire began an orchestrated slaughter in 1915 in which about 1.5 million Armenians were killed. Turkey denies it was a genocide, saying about 300,000 were killed and noting that Armenians sided with invading Russian troops in the aftermath of World War I and took up arms against Turks. The bill’s introduction comes as the Senate Foreign Relations Committee moved to delay discussion of another measure condemning Dink’s murder as well as the Turkish penal code under which the journalist was once tried for “insulting Turkishness.” WASHINGTON – One day after a U.S. Senate committee failed to vote to condemn the murder of Turkish-Armenian journalist Hrant Dink, Illinois Democratic Sen. Richard Durbin confirmed his intention to introduce an Armenian Genocide resolution. An aide to Sen. Dianne Feinstein said she plans to co-sponsor the bill, which will mirror legislation introduced in the House by Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Pasadena. “It’s great news,” Schiff said. Calling the measure a “wonderful development,” he noted that as the assistant Democratic leader, Durbin’s sponsorship of legislation underscores the commitment of Senate leaders to recognize the Armenian Genocide. Durbin spokeswoman Sandra Abrevaya said the senator will likely introduce the bill next week.

DONEGAL DEPUTY Pearse Doherty has accused the Government of hampering business growth in the county.He was speaking in response to replies to his Parliamentary Questions to Simon Coveney, Minister for Agriculture, Food and Marine in relation to the delays in processing aquaculture and foreshore licences.The Donegal South West Deputy Pearse Doherty said today: “I am extremely disappointed to hear that there are 618 aquaculturelicence applications still awaiting determination from the Department,with the harvesting season for this year already much underway. “While the exact time taken to process the applications was notforthcoming from the Minister, reports from those in the industrysuggest that applicants are waiting up to seven years in some casesfor a decision on their applications. This is a ridiculous situation.“While I appreciate that the Department has obligations to ensure thatnational and EU legislation is complied with in full, it is extremelyfrustrating to hear that locals with the potential to start upexport-led businesses trading in shellfish and other marine products,which would create employment and enrich their local economies, areexperiencing such long delays in obtaining these licences.“For example, my office has been in contact with an individual in westDonegal, who has lined up a potential investor in an oyster farmingbusiness which would create significant local employment and provide agreat boost to his local area. Despite having held the licence for 22years previously for the same location, he cannot proceed with hisventure due to the red-tape in administering the licences.Deputy Doherty continued: “I have written to Minister Simon Coveney with regards to this mattertoday and I will continue to highlight the issue. The Department needsto establish an appropriate system which enables it to process theseapplications without undue delay.“It is simply unacceptable, in today’s economic climate, that thoseseeking to engage in local businesses and create employment should behindered in doing so.GOVERNMENT HAMPERING BUSINESS GROWTH – DOHERTY was last modified: July 24th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:GOVERNMENT HAMPERING BUSINESS GROWTH – DOHERTY
(Visited 29 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Based on the following unexpected findings, secular astronomers’ ignorance of reality has reached cosmic proportions.Plentiful water: It wasn’t supposed to exist, but “water was plentiful in the early universe,” Astrobiology Magazine says. Notice the contrast between belief and discovery:Astronomers have long held that water — two hydrogen atoms and an oxygen atom — was a relative latecomer to the universe. They believed that any element heavier than helium had to have been formed in the cores of stars and not by the Big Bang itself. Since the earliest stars would have taken some time to form, mature, and die, it was presumed that it took billions of years for oxygen atoms to disperse throughout the universe and attach to hydrogen to produce the first interstellar “water.”New research poised for publication in Astrophysical Journal Letters by Tel Aviv University and Harvard University researchers reveals that the universe’s first reservoirs of water may have formed much earlier than previously thought — less than a billion years after the Big Bang, when the universe was only 5 percent of its current age.Rare oxygen: By contrast, astronomers expected to find a lot of molecular oxygen in space. But now, Ken Croswell writes in Science Magazine, astronomers have to face the opposite reality. In “Why there is so little breathable oxygen in space,” he says that observations are forcing a new explanation for the unexpected results:Oxygen is the third most common element in the universe, after hydrogen and helium, and in the 1970s astronomers predicted that molecular oxygen would be the third most common interstellar molecule, after molecular hydrogen (H2) and carbon monoxide (CO). It obviously isn’t. In fact, astronomers have detected interstellar molecular oxygen in only two places: the Orion Nebula and the Rho Ophiuchi cloud. But even there the molecule is much rarer than theory predicts. For example, hydrogen molecules in the Orion Nebula outnumber oxygen molecules a million to one.Millions of missing galaxies found hiding in plain sight: That’s the headline of an article by Michael Slezak on New Scientist. Astronomers had thought that “compact spherical galaxies” represented an early stage of galactic evolution. Now, lo and behold, they’re found all over, even in the Milky Way. They have “exactly the same physical mass and compact size as the galaxies in the early universe,” astronomers say, and are 1000 times more prevalent in the local universe than previously thought, “roughly as many as there were in the early universe.” So much for that part of galaxy evolution theory. Did anyone predict this? Watch for the puzzled looks:Emanuele Daddi at the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission was one of the first researchers to notice the apparent excess of compact spherical galaxies in the early universe. “The idea did not occur to us that they could actually be bulges of local [disc galaxies] that had not yet grown their discs,” says Daddi. “Neither did the few hundred papers that subsequently studied the problem consider this idea.“Big void: Watch the bang fizzle in this unexpected finding about the large-scale structure of the universe, as reported by the Royal Astronomical Observatory: “Cold Spot suggests largest structure in Universe: a supervoid 1.3 billion light years across.” Carole Mundell at The Conversation says that this supervoid may not be the only one. The finding is leaving astronomers scrambling for a theory rescue device, including possible “exotic physics”—In 2004, astronomers examining a map of the radiation left over from the Big Bang (the cosmic microwave background, or CMB) discovered the Cold Spot, a larger-than-expected unusually cold area of the sky. The physics surrounding the Big Bang theory predicts warmer and cooler spots of various sizes in the infant universe, but a spot this large and this cold was unexpected.Dark matter: Here’s a vocabulary word to know in cosmology: “upend.” It means to tip over, invert, or falsify. Watch for it in this Nature article; it’s “unorthodox.”After decades of studying dark matter scientists have repeatedly found evidence of what it cannot be but very few signs of what it is. That might have just changed. A study of four colliding galaxies for the first time suggests that the dark matter in them may be interacting with itself through some unknown force other than gravity that has no effect on ordinary matter. The finding could be a significant clue as to what comprises the invisible stuff that is thought to contribute 24 percent of the universe.“This result, if confirmed, could upend our understanding of dark matter,” says physicist Don Lincoln of the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Illinois, who was not involved in the research. So-called “self-interacting dark matter” has been suggested for some time but it has generally been considered unorthodox.Therein lies a conundrum; it’s a little hard to upend something that is not understood to begin with. Adrian Cho says for Science Magazine that this could “force a rethink of dark matter” now that the thinking has been upended.Out-of-place black hole: Science Daily notes another surprise: “Dartmouth astrophysicists and their colleagues have not only proven that a supermassive black hole exists in a place where it isn’t supposed to be, but in doing so have opened a new door to what things were like in the early universe.” This implies, though, that the way things are supposed to be (according to astronomers’ theories) is wrong. Does that provide confidence that they see clearly behind the new door? The article goes on to quote astronomers who admit they don’t know what the conditions were for galaxy formation, or where black holes come from. “‘All the associations that people have made between galaxies and black holes tell us there ought to be no black hole in this system,” says [Thomas] Whalen, but the team has proven otherwise.”A scientist will now explain dark energy: In an “Explainer” article on The Conversation, Robert Scherrer, astronomer at Vanderbilt U, comes to reassure the public that cosmologists know what they are talking about when they discuss “the mysterious dark energy that speeds the universe’s rate of expansion.” There’s the pithy illustrations for the layman, and the trust in the bruised reed of supernova standard candles, and a smorgasbord of possible explanations, including vacuum energy and the cosmological constant. His ending possibility, though, could be unsettling to the trusting student taking notes:There is one other possibility: maybe scientists have been barking up the wrong tree. Maybe there is no dark energy, and our measurements actually mean that Einstein’s theory of gravity is wrong and needs to be fixed. This would be a daunting undertaking, since Einstein’s theory works exceptionally well when we test it in the solar system. (Let’s face it, Einstein really knew what he was doing). So far, no one has produced a convincing improvement on Einstein’s theory that predicts the correct expansion for the universe and yet agrees with Einstein’s theory inside the solar system. I’ll leave that as a homework problem for the reader.Questionable chutzpah: “How we recreated the early universe in the laboratory” is a bold headline for a physicist from Queen’s University Belfast, but Gianluca Sarri tried it on for size in The Conversation. He’s addressing the antimatter conundrum of cosmology—the puzzle why our universe is predominantly made of matter, when big bang theory predicts an equal mix of matter and antimatter.Understanding how matter behaves in this exotic state is crucial if we want to understand how our universe has evolved and, in particular, why the universe as we know it is made up mainly of matter. This is a puzzling feature, as the theory of relativistic quantum mechanics suggests we should have equal amounts of the two. In fact, no current model of physics can explain the discrepancy.While Sarri might gain some bragging rights over the clever experiment his team performed to create the first electron-positron plasma in a laboratory, it’s hard to see how it relates to the real universe. He says the experiment “means an exciting branch of physics is opening up” that may help with “investigating the important matter-antimatter asymmetry,” but this implies that they’re only at the starting line, and a lot of work remains ahead.Update 5/14/15: A press release from the Royal Astronomical Society suggests that a left-handed helical magnetic field that pervades the universe might explain the antimatter asymmetry. New Scientist says these “giant spirals found in space could explain our existence.” The physicist who proposes this solution says, “With this new result, we have one of the first hints that we might be able to solve this mystery.” It seems to just push the problem one step back, though: why would the universe show a preference for one hand over the other… or both? It’s back to the fine-tuning of initial conditions that kept our universe from annihilating itself.Update 5/14/15: A rare quadruple quasar was reported by Science Magazine, which says this is a one-in-10-million chance. Ending comment by Daniel Clery: “So is this a cosmic fluke, or is it time to rewrite our theories of how the universe’s largest structures form?”Was there ever a better illustration of the Blind Men and the Elephant? These stories, from leading journals and reliable sources, show that the most eminent astronomers and cosmologists are clueless about major aspects of the universe. Those programs people watch on TV (like Cosmos) that wallow in scientism and false confidence are caricatures of the reality. Secular cosmologists don’t understand 94% of reality, assigning it to dark things they know nothing about; they invoke occult phenomena left and right to rescue their assumptions, and they are surprised at every turn. They were clueless 15 years ago when we first started reporting the science news (e.g., 5/30/01), and they are just as clueless now, even with dark matter detectors, WMAP, BICEP and all the other whiz-bang instruments at their disposal.Try Google-searching “big bang predictions” and you will likely find Bob Enyart’s list of failed big bang predictions at the top. The video clip about “Big Bang’s Missing Antimatter” is particularly amusing. Ask yourself; isn’t science supposed to be about things we know? People who believe God created the universe should not be afraid of these Sons of Anak in their walled cities (the universities). If they build on the wrong foundation, their house will fall.
This stunning video shows off perfectly wake vortices on an Emirates Boeing 777-300ER. Patrick Smith from Ask The Pilot explains;At the wings’ outermost extremities, the higher pressure air beneath is drawn toward the lower pressure air on top, resulting in a tight, circular flow that trails behind the aircraft like a pronged pair of sideways tornadoes. Under the right combination of temperature, pressure and humidity, moisture in the cores of these vortices condense and become visible, writhing behind the plane like gray vaporous snakes. The vortices are most pronounced when the wing is working hardest to produce lift. Thus, prime time for noticing these trails is during approach or departure.Moisture will condense around other spots too, such as the flap fairings and engine attachment pylons. You’ll witness what appears to be a stream of white smoke pouring from the top of an engine during takeoff. This is water vapor caused by invisible currents around the pylon. Other times the area just above the surface of the wing will suddenly flash into a white puff of localized cloud [as per the video below]. Again, this is condensation brought on by the right combo of moisture, temperature and pressure.Not only can you sometimes see wingtip vortices, but even cooler, you can often hear them from the ground.
