  • Radioactive Materials in Grand Canyon National Park

    first_imgGrand Canyon National Park stored radioactive materials in museum building for 18 years In an interview with The Verge, Kathryn Higley, head of the School of Nuclear Science and Engineering at Oregon State University said that the radioactivity five feet away from the bucket would have been “zero.” Though park staff removed the radioactive material from the site in June, the incident didn’t become public until this month when the park’s safety manager sent an email to park employees alleging management cover-ups. This week a whistleblowing National Parks Service employee alleged that Grand Canyon National Park discovered three five-gallon buckets of radioactive uranium ore near a taxidermy display in the park’s Museum Collection building in March 2018 but failed to disclose their existence. center_img The safety manager claims the uranium ore had been in the building for 18 years. In a statement to NPR, a public affairs specialist for the park said that a recent survey of the building found radiation at standard levels but that the Occupational Health and Safety Administration would investigate. Among other things, the Grand Canyon Museum Collection hosts children’s tours that stop at the taxidermy exhibit for up to 30 minutes. The effect of the radiation on visitors is unclear. last_img read more

  • Mexican migrant caravan is a distraction

    first_imgDespite the move, very few of those migrants are likely to be granted asylum. Many or most will be detained and ultimately deported.It’s easy to lose track of the facts amid the administration’s anti-immigration rhetoric.There’s the exaggerated talk about so-called sanctuary cities (in which immigrant criminals are prosecuted and punished as they are anywhere else); catch-and-release (the policy by which some migrants are allowed to live legally in the United States as they pursue asylum claims); and, yes, the wall, the president’s crowd-pleasing panacea.Nonetheless, the fact remains that illegal entry, as measured by Border Patrol apprehensions along the southwest border, remains near its lowest point in decades, despite a recent surge.Take this March as an example.Apprehensions along the Mexican border more than doubled from a year earlier, when they plummeted following Trump’s inauguration.But they remained less than half the level of a decade ago and an even smaller fraction compared with the years before that. In court papers filed last week, a Mexican woman referred to as “Ms. G.” said her 6-year-old daughter, who is blind, and 4-year-old son had been removed from her shortly after they entered the country at the beginning of March.A Honduran mother identified as Miran said U.S. agents took away her toddler son when they entered the country in February.In both cases, mothers and their children were detained in separate facilities even after presenting birth certificates.In Miran’s case, after a preliminary finding that she faced “credible fear” of returning to her home country.The two remain separated.Tearing apart families is a despicable means of deterrence that will traumatize children and do far more to tarnish America’s image than a couple of hundred migrants waving flags at the border.More from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homes The United States has a legitimate interest in border security and in deterring Central American and Mexican migrants from making the risky trip north.It is also legally obligated, under international and U.S. laws, to accept asylum seekers fleeing upheaval and threats in their home countries.It’s fair to warn migrants of the risks they face from human traffickers and other criminals along the northward trek.It’s fair to warn them about their long odds in gaining asylum once they’ve been admitted to the United States.It’s fair to judge asylum seekers on the merits of their circumstances and to deport those whose claims don’t measure up.It’s fair to beef up border security, as successive presidents have done since Sept. 11, 2001.Increasingly, though, the Trump administration has gone further by separating migrant parents and their children.center_img Categories: Editorial, OpinionThe following editorial appeared in The Washington Post:Dramatic images of about 200 Central Americans who arrived Sunday at the Mexican frontier near San Diego after traveling north in a caravan through Mexico are fodder for President Donald Trump’s crusade to frighten Americans into thinking that borders are broken and immigration is out of control.On Tuesday, U.S. officials allowed a second group of about 14 asylum seekers across the border, where their fate will be determined by immigration officials and the courts.last_img read more

  • ‘PSI is pro-business’: Giring plans to boost economy through 2024 presidential bid

    first_imgGiring Ganesha, the acting chairman of the Indonesian Solidarity Party (PSI), who recently declared his intention to run in the 2024 presidential race, says he has plans to make the most of Indonesia’s demographic bonus to boost the economy.“PSI is pro-business. We want businesses to thrive to achieve the people’s wellbeing,” he said during a press conference on Wednesday.The 37-year-old singer-turned-politician said 2024 would be an opportunity for young people to lead the nation, including in business innovation. “Our government system needs to break out of old patterns. We need more young leaders who understand the challenges faced by youngsters, as well as aspiring entrepreneurs with a vision to change business for the better,” he said.He added that a fast-running industry needed supporting policies and infrastructure. “We must focus on expediting regulation that will help new and established businesses to flourish so that there will be more jobs and even new careers,” said Giring.The PSI bills itself as a political party for the young, with a strong social media presence. The party backed President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo’s reelection in 2019 and has declared support for his administration.Read also: Singer-turned-politician Giring Ganesha to run for president in 2024 Giring, the former vocalist of pop rock band Nidji, also mentioned Jokowi’s infrastructure achievement as his inspiration.“As I was in a band and did tours across the country, I witnessed how Indonesia has developed with more toll roads, bigger airports, malls and an increased purchasing power among the people. I have no criticism of Jokowi’s administration,” he said.He added that he would follow Jokowi’s signature blusukan (impromptu visits) to gain insights from the people, especially youngsters. “In the next three years after the pandemic is over, I’m ready to travel across Indonesia to meet the people,” he said.Giring expressed optimism that his past experience as a band, business and party leader would be enough for him to lead the nation. He also said that his early declaration as a 2024 presidential candidate was designed to give him and the PSI more time to prepare.In 2018, Giring turned from focusing on his musical career to politics. He ran in the 2019 legislative election although he did not get a seat in the House of Representatives after the party failed to meet the legislative threshold at the national level of 4 percent of the total vote.

  • Mikel Arteta pinpoints Arsenal stat that is ‘not good enough’

    first_imgAdvertisement Mikel Arteta pinpoints Arsenal stat that is ‘not good enough’ Mikel Arteta knows his Arsenal side have a lot of improving to do (Picture: Getty Images)Mikel Arteta has accepted that Arsenal’s inability to create chances is a thorn in the side of their progress and an area they must improve as soon as possible.The Gunners find themselves 16th in the Premier League in terms of chances created, even lower than their disappointing position of 10th in the actual Premier League table.The north London side have scored 53 goals in their 37 games thus far, which is perfectly respectable, but Arteta is not happy with the creativity in his side and knows that 16th place stat, one behind Sunday’s opponents Watford, is nowhere near good enough.AdvertisementAdvertisement‘They don’t lie, those stats,’ said Arteta. ‘When you relate that to Arsenal it’s not good enough and there are certain aspects of the games we don’t control as well as we should.ADVERTISEMENT‘At the same time, when you are in a process where you need immediate results … for the short-term objectives, you have to find a way to do it.

  • Suicidal teenagers ‘let down’

    first_imgHealthLifestyle Suicidal teenagers ‘let down’ by: – June 26, 2012 Tweet Share Share Sharing is caring!center_img Share 15 Views   no discussions Robbie’s family say there was no follow-up care and he was left alone Suicidal teenagers are not getting the help they need, it’s claimed.Charities, doctors and relatives say it’s because parts of the health service can’t decide if they should be treated as adults or young people.As a result some end up getting no help at all.People under the age of 16 are treated by the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) and over-18s are automatically helped by the Adult Mental Health Service (AMHS).However, in the middle are 16 and 17-year-olds who don’t automatically fit into either service.Danielle Hale’s brother Robbie was 16 when he took his own life near Portsmouth last year.She says he got practically no help because he was in a “grey area” and was forgotten about.After Robbie’s first attempt to kill himself, he had a meeting with mental health workers but Danielle says there was no follow-up care.Robbie died four months later.“It makes me really angry,” she said. “He was happy, always up for a bit of banter, a sportsman.”She says the authorities “don’t take it very seriously”.‘Scary’Suicide is the most common cause of death among young men in Britain.Figures show around 800 young people die every year but around 19,000 attempt it.Doctors are advised to treat anyone over 16 as an adult.When young people are no longer eligible for child services there is often a period of no support as they wait to access adult services.They can be put at the back of long waiting lists and for some young people that means they do not get the help they need.Adult services are different from adolescent services with different counsellors and varying treatment plans.Erin Wright from the charity YoungMinds says in CAMHS there is a focus on getting better whereas with adult services the focus is on coping with the problem.She says it can be “scary” moving from one to the other.The General Medical Council (GMC), which represent GPs, says it “would be a help to everyone” if the system was cleared up but they say it’s a difficult age group to deal with.They say some 16-year-olds can be mature and suit adult services better but some are the opposite.The Samaritans says the confusion is making life even more difficult for vulnerable teenagers. If you are having suicidal thoughts, or would like to speak to someone because you are concerned about a friend or relative you can contact the Papyrus Hopeline on 0800 068 4141 or Samaritans on 08457 90 90 90.There is also a guide to the transition between services available from YoungMinds.By Declan HarveyBBC Newsbeatlast_img read more

  • IN Family Farmers Join New Agriculture Council with HSUS

    first_imgJames Benham joined the new Indiana Agricultural Council with HSUS. Photo Courtesy of James Benham.Indiana is the seventh state to join forces with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) to form an agricultural council, designed to bring local farmers together with the Society to provide guidance and help foster better practices.James Benham, president of the Indiana Farmers Union, has been a farmer in Versailles for the past 40 years.He joined the newly formed council because he says rural family farmers have very little representation at the state level – and a lot of people who are making the rules don’t have agricultural experience.He says education is key to bridging the gaps.“Trying to convey what goes on on a farm and actually what goes on in an urban setting to both sides,” he adds. “And you know, without that communication nothing ever gets done and at the end of the day, nobody wins.“So my job, I think, is to basically just be a voice for both sides.”According to the society, its mission with the state agricultural councils is to receive assistance from local farmers and provide a place where family farmers can gain assistance with marketing opportunities – so the society can highlight farmers who are good stewards for the animals as well as the environment.Other states include Colorado, North Carolina, Iowa, Ohio, Nebraska and Missouri.Benham says there have been many changes in farming over the last few decades.With a push for cheap food, many family farmers are being priced out of business with large commercial operations taking their place.He says the general public has a very different perception of what is really going on with food in this country.He cites many commercials for big companies that show small family farmers.“Then when reality hits and they go down the interstate and you see a feed lot that’s three miles long,” he says. “What the heck’s happened to us?“So, those kind of things need to be discussed and talked about and why we’ve gotten where we’ve gotten.”The environmental impacts from feedlots have been well documented and vary from state to state.Joe Maxwell, a hog farmer and vice president of outreach for the Humane Society of the United States, says between 1997 and 2002, Indiana lost almost 10 percent of its family farmers and since 1978, the U.S. lost 1 million family farmers.He says his group hopes to expand the state councils to include ranchers and farmers in about 20 to 25 states.Indiana News Servicelast_img read more
