Une personne a trouvé la mort et quatre autres sont blessées, mais il n’y aurait pour l’instant aucun rejet radioactif à l’extérieur selon les autorités. Un four a explosé ce matin à 11H45 sur le site nucléaire de Marcoule dans le Gard. Plus précisément, la déflagration s’est produite dans un centre de traitement de déchets exploité par une filiale d’EDF, la société Socodei, au niveau d’un four qui servait à fondre des déchets radioactifs métalliques de faible à très faible activité, selon l’Autorité de sûreté nucléaire.  À lire aussiLa fusion nucléaire pourrait bien devenir prochainement une réalitéMais “il n’y a pas de rejets à l’extérieur, pour l’instant” a assuré un porte-parole du Commissariat à l’énergie atomique. Néanmoins, les pompiers ont annoncé la mise en place d’un périmètre de sécurité en raison des risques de fuite provoqués par l’incident qui a par ailleurs fait un mort et quatre blessés. La victime a été “retrouvé carbonisée” et l’un des blessés est dans un état grave, a ainsi affirmé le quotidien Midi Libre.  De son côté, l’exploitant a déclenché le plan d’urgence interne, d’après l’Autorité de sûreté nucléaire.

first_imgIndia’s supersonic fighter jet, Tejas will participate in the upcoming Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition (LIMA) in Malaysia.Twitter/ IAFA day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi revealed that he gave his nod to the airstrike in Balakot, Pakistan, despite bad weather in the area, a senior IAF officer has said that the presence of clouds could have affected the impact of Spice 2000 glide bombs that targetted JeM training camps. The IAF has said that bad weather could have really made a difference to the outcome of the airstrikes on February 26.Earlier, PM Modi had said that the presence of clouds on the day of the airstrikes worked in favour of IAF. He had said that bad weather made the Indian warplanes escape radar detection, something which has invited widespread criticism by defence experts as well as opposition political parties.”We were in two thoughts that day whether to go ahead with the air strikes or not because the weather wasn’t good and there were clouds. Finally, I had this raw idea that maybe if we go ahead, the clouds may hold and we could escape the detection from their radars. I am not a person of science but I gave them an idea and a go-ahead to carry out the strikes,” PM Modi had said. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is addressing an election rally in Kushinagar in Uttar Pradesh.Twitter/BJPThe statement has invited criticism as well as hilarious reactions on social media on how could PM Modi propose such an idea when the weather has no impact on the functioning of the radars. The Trinamool Congress headed by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has called out to the Election Commission saying that such a statement may have been deliberately issued to influence the voters at a time when the Lok Sabha polls are going on.The IAF officer told New India Express that the images fed on Israel-made Spice 2000 bombs that were dropped from Mirage 2000 jets could have easily missed the target if they were covered by the clouds as there could have been problems with the bomb sensors. He also said that one of the Mirage 2000 planes could not even drop the payload due to bad weather. The BJP has defended PM Modi’s assertions saying that he has not revealed vital intelligence inputs of the operation and hence it is not in violation of any rule.last_img read more

(RNS) — Juana Luz Tobar Ortega spends her days at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church sewing pillow covers, sculpting clay cups and bowls and cooking papusas and tamales.But Ortega’s many homemaking skills belie the harsh reality of her life: She cannot go home.Later this month, Ortega will mark her two-year anniversary in sanctuary. The 47-year-old Guatemalan native took refuge at St. Barnabas on May 31, 2017, after receiving an ankle bracelet and an order of deportation.On Thursday (May 9), some PBS stations across the country will air a 25-minute documentary titled “Santuario” that tells Ortega’s story. The film looks at the plight of the Ortega family after Juana left  her husband, Carlos, four children and two grandchildren for sanctuary. The directors hope the film shines a light on noncriminal deportation cases like Ortega’s, which have multiplied in the wake of the Trump administration’s immigration crackdown.Ortega, who has no criminal record, has lived in the United States for 26 years, most of them in the North Carolina town of Asheboro, about 30 miles from Greensboro.Before taking sanctuary, she worked as a seamstress for a furniture company in nearby High Point. Six years ago during a raid on her employer, she was arrested for entering the country illegally and released. It was then she first realized her asylum claim was denied. Each year since, she checked in with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and received a one-year stay of deportation – until in 2017, when for no stated reason she was given 30 days to leave the country.Juana Luz Tobar Ortega with her family at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Greensboro, N.C. Photo courtesy of Santuario filmFaced with the choice of leaving her family and going back to Guatemala, or awaiting a knock at the door from an ICE officer, she sought church sanctuary.Ortega’s family visits her at the church every weekend. Her two granddaughters often stay with her during school vacations. But for all practical purposes, her life is on hold.“I came into the project excited about the idea of sanctuary as a form of protection for people facing deportation,” said Christine Delp, who co-directed the film with Pilar Timpane. “And I came through not really sure whether sanctuary is a good or bad thing. It’s like being in limbo. There’s an extreme emotional, financial, physical toll on families.”The “Santuario” documentary poster. Courtesy imageHundreds of congregations across the country have pledged to support undocumented people at imminent risk of deportation. A far smaller number have actually housed them.There are now 48 people taking sanctuary in houses of worship across the U.S., according to Church World Service, which maintains a database. Three have been in sanctuary since 2016, when the most recent sanctuary movement began, and 21 are coming up on their second anniversary.Houses of worship are considered “sensitive locations,” meaning that federal immigration enforcement officers will avoid arresting, searching or interviewing people there under most circumstances.The congregations that have people living in sanctuary have worked hard to advocate on their behalf.So far, they’ve had limited success.Some people in sanctuary have successfully won a stay of removal and have been reunited with their families. (One woman formerly in sanctuary at another Greensboro church was granted a green card last week, entitling her to permanent residency.)But the majority are still waiting.Timpane, co-director of the documentary about Ortega, which has shown at 11 film festivals and won the grand jury prize for short documentary at the New Orleans Film Festival, said she still struggles with people’s misunderstandings about the immigration system.“It continues to surprise that we get questions like ‘What did she do? Why is (she) getting a deportation sentence?’ — rather than ‘What can be done to change the system?’” Timpane said.St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Greensboro, N.C. RNS photo by Yonat ShimronSt. Barnabas, North Carolina’s first congregation in recent history to offer sanctuary to an undocumented immigrant, took in Ortega knowing her stay would be indefinite, but feeling called nonetheless to help her.To keep her safe, it instituted new rules: The church doors remain locked. A volunteer is on duty 24 hours a day. And no immigration enforcement officers are allowed on the premises without an arrest warrant signed by a judge.The church turned a vesting room and storage area into a bedroom and sitting area for Ortega. Her son-in-law, a plumber, installed a shower in one of the church bathrooms.Besides sheltering her, church members revved up their advocacy on Ortega’s behalf. They’ve written letters, made phone calls, visited Congress to push for an immigration policy that keeps undocumented families together and allows a path to citizenship. Failing that, they have raised the possibility of a private bill that might allow Ortega a stay of deportation.The church was buoyed by last year’s midterm elections when Democrats took control of the House of Representatives — including the House Judiciary Committee, and Subcommittee on Immigration and Citizenship. A church group drove to Washington to visit with Rep. Jerry Nadler, the committee chair, taking some of Ortega’s pottery as a gift. The group also visited with Sen. Thom Tillis, one of North Carolina’s two Republican senators.Juana Luz Tobar Ortega with some of her sewing machines at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Greensboro, N.C. RNS photo by Yonat ShimronBut so far, there’s been little movement on immigration.The Rev. Randall Keeney, the church vicar, said he’s become disillusioned by the nation’s politics that have failed so many undocumented people.“I used to think our representatives acted out of conscience,” he said. “I don’t believe that anymore. I think they only act out of expediency and for political reasons.”Last year, the ankle bracelet that ICE strapped around Ortega’s leg broke. The church, which has been upfront with ICE about her whereabouts, called the agency to inform officials about it. ICE offered to fit her with a new bracelet.The church said no.This weekend, Ortega’s third child, Jackeline, will graduate from a community college with a degree in animal science. Ortega won’t be there to cheer her on when she accepts her diploma.Her youngest, Carlos Jr., whom she lovingly calls Carlito, is a high school junior. Ortega tears up at the thought that she might miss his high school graduation next year.Then she wipes away the tears and reminds herself why she chose sanctuary.“It’s better for me to stay here,” she said. “Here I have my family. If I went back (to Guatemala) we’d be separated.”Jackeline, Carlos and Carlos Jr. are U.S. citizens, while Ortega’s two older daughters, born in Guatemala, have qualified for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.“It’s hard for us,” said her eldest daughter, Lesvi Molina, who stays with her one night a week. “But it’s nothing compared to what she’s dealing with. It’s very overwhelming to feel like there’s no way out.”Santuario – Trailer from Pilar Timpane on Vimeo.(“Santuario” will begin broadcast on Thursday on PBS stations around the country as part of the series Reel South and then nationally on the World Channel.

The white dashed lines have been plotted to help visualize the nodal lines and circles. Credit: (c) Physical Review Letters (2016). DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.116.184501 More information: Gaël Vuillermet et al. Chladni Patterns in a Liquid at Microscale, Physical Review Letters (2016). DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.116.184501ABSTRACTBy means of ultrathin silicon membranes excited in the low ultrasound range, we show for the first time that it is possible to form two-dimensional Chladni patterns of microbeads in liquid. Unlike the well-known effect in a gaseous environment at the macroscale, where gravity effects are generally dominant, leading particles towards the nodal regions of displacement, we show that the combined effects of an ultrathin plate excited at low frequency (yielding to subsonic waves) together with reduced gravity (arising from buoyancy) will enhance the importance of microstreaming in the Chladni problem. Here, we report that for micrometric beads larger than the inner streaming layer, the microscale streaming in the vicinity of the plate tends to gather particles in antinodal regions of vibrations yielding to patterns in good agreement with the predicted modes for a liquid-loaded plate. Interestingly, a symmetry breaking phenomenon together with the streaming can trigger movements of beads departing from one cluster to another. We show that, for higher modes, this movement can appear as a collective rotation of the beads in the manner of a “farandole.” © 2016 This document is subject to copyright.

Journal information: Physical Review Letters Explore furthercenter_img Several centuries ago, it was noted that covering a plate with flour and causing the plate to vibrate resulted in the flour forming into different patterns, depending on the frequency of the vibration. Later it was noted that sand poured over the back of violin demonstrated the same types of properties—such patterns have subsequently been called Chladni Patterns and they have been used in designing musical instruments and other applications over the years. In this new effort, the researchers wondered if the same types of patterns would emerge in particles that exist in a water solution.To find out, the researchers placed an amount of multi-sized microbeads into a container that had a membrane stretched across a base at the bottom, similar to a drum. They next filled the container with water and then watched (and filmed) what happened when the membrane was caused to vibrate at different frequencies.The researchers found that the beads did migrate to form patterns, very similar to those in a dry environment, and they could be changed by adjusting the vibration frequency—but they also found that there were some differences. First, the patterns were not created the same way, instead of the finer grains getting pushed to nodes, they actually moved in the opposite direction, piling up at antinodes, forming what might be described as inverse Chladni patterns—due to a phenomenon known as acoustic streaming. But perhaps, more amusing, the team also found that under the right circumstances, i.e. causing vibrations that were off the resonant frequency, the microbeads could be caused to move in clusters around an outer circle, much like, they note, dancers engaged in a farandole.The researchers note that their findings could have practical applications, like using vibrations to move particles in a fluid across a surface to a desired location in industrial applications, or more exotically, to move cells on a surface into a desired pattern before allowing them to grow. Citation: Researchers investigate Chladni patterns in a liquid at microscale (2016, May 6) retrieved 18 August 2019 from (—A team of researchers with Université Grenoble Alpes in France has discovered that there are differences in patterns created in tiny particles immersed in water over a vibrating drum head, than in dry sand particles dropped on a metal plate and vibrated.

Lawrence General Hospital in Massachusetts recently installed the first Philips Panorama High Field Open (HFO) MR scanner with Ambient Experience, which allows patients to adjust lighting and animations in order to make themselves more comfortable. Ambient Experience integrates architecture, design and technologies, such as lighting and sound, to allow patients to personalize their environment and experience a more relaxing atmosphere. Animation selections on the wall are accompanied by soft lighting and music, allowing “escapes” to areas such as the coastline or mountains. For children, a cartoon scene is also available.“We wanted to offer our patients something they couldn’t get anywhere else in the area. They are engaged from the moment they walk through the door,” saidBrian P. Murphy, M.D., medical director, Department of Radiology at Lawrence General Hospital. “The soothing environment provided by the Ambient Experience is only part of the way we are working to meet the needs of our patients, many who are claustrophobic. Patients appreciate the option of being scanned in the open MR. It’s opening up the possibility of MR to patients who would otherwise be unable to tolerate imaging in a closed-bore setting. Murphy went on to say that the new MR technology makes the process easier for the physicians as well. “Having patients more relaxed helps us drive efficiency since it often takes less time to position them and in the past some testing had to be rescheduled due to patient anxiety,” he added.

first_imgCABO BLANCO, Puntarenas – With the Pacific Ocean crashing against the beach at Cabo Blanco Absolute Nature Reserve, the Costa Rican National System of Conservation Areas and the Ministry of the Environment and Energy (MINAE) posthumously honored Jairo Mora for his dedication to marine conservation during the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the national park system on Saturday.As government leaders, park rangers and civil society celebrated Cabo Blanco’s golden anniversary, the national park system finds itself in a moment of self-reflection as dwindling budgets and rising violence threaten the parks and their protectors.Mora’s mother, Fernanda Sandoval, accepted the honors on behalf of her son.“It’s something very meaningful as a mother because he lived his life and gave his life to protect nature, biodiversity, trees, everything,” Sandoval told The Tico Times.“I know that they will never forget, he will always be in people’s thoughts,” she said.After recognizing Mora’s conservation efforts, MINAE Vice Minister Ana Lorena Guevara signed an executive decree authorizing park rangers to carry firearms in protected areas. Officials signed another executive decree that established incentive pay for rangers to perform police work.Poaching, illegal mining and drug trafficking have become a dangerous trifecta for park rangers, who increasingly are out-gunned by trespassers and criminals who use the uninhabited parks for illegal activities. Diminishing funds have exacerbated security concerns.Founded on Oct. 21, 1963, Cabo Blanco Absolute Nature Reserve was Costa Rica’s first protected piece of land, effectively establishing the national parks system. The park was the culmination of the efforts of Nicolas Wessberg and Karen Mogensen, a Swedish couple who purchased the land that is now the reserve in 1959 and began to reforest it.Cabo Blanco protects 3,351 acres of land and 4,164 acres of sea around the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula.During the 1960s and ’70s, the Costa Rican government aggressively pushed rural farmers to cut down forests and clear land for agriculture and cattle ranching, leading to some of the world’s highest rates of deforestation.The efforts of Mogensen and Wessberg, and other like-minded Ticos helped reserved this course. Today, Costa Rica has the greatest percentage of protected national territory in the world, covering 24 percent of the Central American country over 28 national parks, eight biological reserves and two nature reserves.

first_imgAs a story, “Sonrisa de Tiburón” isn’t all that complicated: An explorer flies a plane to a distant island, then scuba-dives into the surrounding waters. Fish and oysters emerge, each interacting with the explorer in a different way. Halfway through the show, we see evil anglers catching sharks and mutilating them in order to prepare shark fin soup.Translated as “Shark Smile,” the touring show is a family-friendly celebration of marine wildlife with a social message in its middle. The theater company Ex-Ánima wants its audience to think critically about commercial fishing and to embrace underwater life forms. While there is no text or dialogue to say so, the island in the piece is supposed to represent Isla del Coco, a Costa Rican territory and one of the most famous shark habitats in the world.But Ex-Ánima’s real triumph is its technical sophistication: “Shark Smile” is a “black light” show, a genre that started in Europe in the 1960s and has wowed audiences ever since. Like moving Lava Lamps, the actors and props are painted in colors sensitive to ultraviolet light. The dark room, black background, and colorless costumes make everything invisible except for deliberately glowing colors and forms. Related posts:Christmas-themed theater warms hearts this month Sea Shepherd’s Paul Watson files human rights lawsuit against Costa Rica ‘Virus’ is solo performance at its finest Valentine’s Day, lyrical boleros, and other happenings around Costa Rica While these special effects could represent anything, Ex-Ánima uses the black light to illustrate the darkest depths of the ocean. Schools of fish swim in collaborative patterns. Sharks stalk in slow circles. Sea turtles float along in formation. The actors have clearly studied the movements of marine animals, and they believably mimic that physicality. Even the explorer swims like an actual scuba diver, and it takes long minutes to guess how his entire body levitates above the dark stage.The shark-finning section is staged as shadow-puppetry, and given the long history of shadow puppets as tools of protest, this part of the show is particularly powerful. We see fisherman hooking sharks and slicing off their fins, collecting them at the docks in buckets, then selling them to restaurants.The scene isn’t exactly tactful: The soup is ultimately set before a figure in a sedge hat, who slurps up the soup with a large spoon. By using the iconic East Asian headgear, “Shark Smile” unambiguously blames such poaching on the Chinese. While demand for shark fins is highest in China, the costume could be construed as unnecessary race baiting (so to speak). Remember, this is a show for kids.Political correctness quibbles aside, “Shark Smile” is a wondrous production, and when the lights come up and the performers take their bow, it’s astonishing to realize that there are only six of them. Lasting less than an hour, “Shark Smile” packs a lot of images into a short period, making it a perfect family excursion.Then again, the show will appeal equally – and maybe more so – to adults. When I attended a special noon performance at the National Theater (this weekend’s shows will take place at the National Cultural Center or CENAC), the auditorium was packed, and the mean age was probably 40. While kids will enjoy the animals, adults will appreciate the inventive staging. It’s hard to imagine pantomiming oceanic movement and synchronizing with five other people in complete darkness. Black light theater requires a physical self-awareness and attention to rhythm that most of us couldn’t imagine. If you’ve never seen this kind of live performance before, “Shark Smile” is a worthy maiden voyage.“Sonrisa de Tiburón” plays Sept. 12-14 at CENAC, downtown San José. Fri. & Sat., 8 p.m.; Sun., 2 p.m. 2,000-4,000 ($4-8). Info: RedCultura. Facebook Commentslast_img read more
