5 more green sea turtles rescued by Costa Rican police in Caribbean

first_imgCosta Rica’s National Police rescued five more green sea turtles (Chelonia mydas) weighing up to 150 kilograms last week in Moín, Limón, on the northern Caribbean coast. The rescue was a success story for a more aggressive patrolling strategy on the coast that has seen some success in saving the endangered turtles and protecting their eggs.The five female sea turtles were found tied and on their backs near the mouth of the Moín River along the beach with the same name, according to a July 22 statement from the Public Security Ministry. Allan Obando, National Police chief for Limón, said that there were no arrests in connection with the poaching.Green sea turtles can weigh up to 320 kilograms (700 pounds). The creatures nest on Costa Rica’s Caribbean beaches from July to October and are often poached for their meat and eggs. The International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources Green listed green sea turtles as endangered.The turtles, which weighed between 120 and 150 kilograms, were sent to the Jaguar Rescue Center in Puerto Viejo for care, where two others also recently have been taken. Police have rescued at least seven of the ancient reptiles so far this year from poachers who capture them for their meat as they come ashore to lay their eggs.One of the five was released on July 22, according to social media posts from the Jaguar Rescue Center and Public Security Minister Gustavo Mata. Encar García, the center’s biologist, told The Tico Times that two more were released in good condition Monday morning. The remaining two and a third, which arrived at the rescue center on July 3, remain in serious condition, she said. These three turtles suffered harpoon wounds that punctured their lungs, an injury that keeps the animals from regulating their buoyancy. Without the ability to dive and rise, the sea turtles cannot feed themselves in the wild. Obando told The Tico Times that the rescue of the turtles last week is a direct result of a two-pronged approach from the National Police, Coast Guard and volunteer groups that patrol the beaches. The first half of the strategy is improving prevention. Better coordination with volunteers, other law enforcement agencies, like the Coast Guard, and the community have given police the information they need to take action. Judicial Investigation Police rescued a 120-kilogram green sea turtle tied up in a private home in Limón thanks to a tip from a neighbor this month, for example.“If they see boats or cars in the area they let us know. They’re our eyes on the beach,” Obando said.The police chief said that the second half of the strategy was to increase their physical resources at the beach. Four full-time police officers now patrol the beaches in Moín, where conservationist Jairo Mora was killed in an altercation with poachers on May 31, 2013. With officers on the ground, law enforcement can act more quickly to save the turtles before they are sold for meat.Obando said that the strategy is responsible for the protection of an estimated 1,000 sea turtles this season, and a hatchery program in coordination with law enforcement has released 400 baby green sea turtles. Another group of hatchlings is expected to be released next week, he said.

The most annoying inflight sound is…

first_imgA crying child or a loud child is still the number one most annoying inflight sound, according to a new study.Research conducted by Australia Travel Safe found that 67 percent of Australians think the sound of a crying or loud child is one is the most frustrating sounds to occur during a flight.Following close behind the young ones is surprisingly the sound of ears popping during take-off and touch down, with 49 percent of the votes.According to Australia Travel Safe representative Deborah Mills, ear popping sound occurs during changes in external air pressure by creating pressure in the middle ear space.“The eustacian tubes carry air from the back of your nose into your middle ear,” Ms Mills explained.Meanwhile, 45 percent of Australian travellers said people talking while they are trying to get some rest was annoying and 20 percent say it’s the noise of the engine that causes them most grief during a flight.   Also making the list of annoying inflight sounds is the opening and closing of overhead lockers, as well as the sound of people shuffling up and down the aisle.Source = ETB News: N.J.last_img read more

Le Brassus Switzerland – Reported by Elite Travel

first_imgLe Brassus, Switzerland – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine – On July 8, 2010, the eve of the traditional Swiss watch industry vacation, legendary artist, trumpeter, composer and producer Quincy Jones made a special visit to the Manufacture Audemars Piguet in Le Brassus, Switzerland to explore the watch-making workshop, talk about “Project Q,” and work on developing ideas for charity.While taking a workshop tour, Jones admired the work of the Audemars Piguet watch-making artisans, praising their ability to “impress [him] by their precision and expertise they display in shaping these timeless gems.” He declared that they are “great creative talents and passionately dedicated artists.”Jones’ admiration and respect for the Swiss manufacture, however, did not grow over night. The producer and the manufacture have had close ties for several years, even joining forces to develop “Project Q,” an organization aimed at raising political and public awareness of young people’s need for self-expression and the means that must be provided to ensure they fulfill their potential. In fact, Audemars Piguet honors prominent public figures or social organizations that have played a central role on behalf of children with an international award called the “Q Prize.”Further indicative of the strong ties between Jones and AP is the Millenary Quincy Jones watch. The striking tribute timepiece was released in January and features contemporary lines matched with a sophisticated design meant to echo the notes on the keyboard of a piano, an instrument dear to the artist’s heart. Jones will donate proceeds from this watch to raising funds for his Quincy Jones Foundation, an organization committed to helping children by improving their well-being, health and dignity.The respect Jones has for Audemars Piguet is mutual, as evidenced by CEO Philippe Merk’s reflection on the highly emotional visit by the artist, describing Quincy Jones as an “amazing artist and daring entrepreneur, but above all a man with a big heart.” Merk went on to say “one cannot help but admir[e] his career, especially considering the difficulties he encountered during his childhood. He gives us an important life lesson and naturally inspires profound respect.”A relationship based on know-how, artistic passion and empathy, Jones’ visit to Audemars Piguet helped resurface these vales and further strengthen ties between the music legend and famous Swiss watch manufacturer.Visit www.audemarspiguet.com.last_img read more

the process experts said Abraham Poincheval on Wednesday launched his newest performance piece in Paris called "Egg" which requires him to sit inside a glass enclosure atop a nest of 12 eggs nearly nonstop for the next month The 44-year-old artist said by showing a male figure nurturing embryos to life he "raises the question of metamorphosis and gender" according to a translation of his biography and work by the Palais de Tokyo museum which is exhibiting "Egg" But scientists say the stunt will likely doom the dozen embryos preventing them from developing into healthy and full-grown chicks Human beings have lower body temperatures than chickens and eggs that are incubated under low temperatures typically grow abnormally or die sooner according to R Michael Hulet an associate professor of animal science at Penn State University "Weve had people try incubating at very low temperatures and we had very very low incubation rates And then we usually have some abnormal developments" Hulet told TIME "Its a welfare situation You want to have ideal conditions so that those birds that hatch have the best chance at life This seems like it’s putting them in an abnormal situation" Thierry Orban—Getty Images Hulet said humans have a normal body temperature of 986 degrees Fahrenheit while a chickens body temperature is usually 104 to 105 degrees Fahrenheit Chickens also have whats known as a "brood patch" on their underside while nesting that helps them transfer body heat to their young An egg should ideally be kept at 100 degrees Fahrenheit for normal incubation which is not a task easily done by a human Researchers have previously found that embryo development is most stunted when eggs are incubated at around 98 degrees Fahrenheit compared with about 100 degrees Fahrenheit during the first week of incubation according to a 2005 study published by the US National Library of Medicine It usually takes a chicken 21 days to hatch an egg Poinchevals performance is expected to last three to four weeks according to the AFP The artist who is known for his art antics is giving himself one 30-minute break a day to get off the eggs He is also covering his body with a thick cape-like blanket as he sits on a "laying table" that has a dug-out section to prevent him from squashing the eggs It’s unclear if Poincheval has any aides to help him heat the eggs He could not be immediately reached for comment Reuters reported that he would tweak his diet to include foods that raise his body temperature The blanket he’s wrapped in is also supposed to make his body hotter The artist spoke to AFP in Paris about the visibility aspect of his latest piece “I have never been so directly exposed to the public before Usually I am inside something But every performance is a first” he said Last month the artist lived inside a block of limestone for a week in the name of art Hulet was baffled when he learned about the risky egg

The 20-year-old former junior world champion had made the final after achieving the qualifying mark in his very first throw on Friday,and he was leaps ahead of the field on Saturday with his very first throw Neeraj Chopra recorded the season’s best throw of 8647m while clinching gold in javelin throw AFP "It is a very important medal for me I wanted to touch my personal best but I missed it by a centimetre In my desperation for that I tried so hard that I tumbled over in my last two attempts But I am very happy and I have lot of competitions this year to achieve the personal best" Neeraj said after his triumph Neeraj was the favourite for gold at Gold Coastafter his 8594m throw during the Federation Cup National Championships last month and he achieved India’s first gold in athletics in this edition of the Games The CWG field had been depleted after Olympics and world silver-medallist Julius Yego of Kenya failed to qualify for final round while 2012 Olympic champion and Rio Games bronze-winner Keshorn Walcott opted out of the Games Neeraj thus became only the second javelin thrower from India to claim a CWG medal— the first being Kashinath Naik who fetched a bronze in the 2010 Delhi Games "The competition was very good here the world champion was here but he could not qualify It was still quite tough but I was very sure of myself" Neeraj said Overall Neeraj’s medal is only

He consistently crossed the 82m mark in the final fouling two attempts in all "It makes a lot of difference when you manage to get a first throw like that It builds pressure on others As for me I was not under any pressure or nerves I was well-prepared" he said The fun-loving youngster laughed when asked how he would celebrate the momentous occasion but did speak about the importance of letting one’s hair down once in a while to escape stress "One shouldn’t be too serious in life it’s good to be disciplined but you should not overdo food restrictions A bit of enjoyment always works One

of the Congo that sets up makeshift labs in remote parts of the country will join the vaccine trial underway UCLA-DRC Research Program Research during Ebola vaccine trial: It’s complicated By Jon CohenMay 25 2018 3:00 PM During an outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus like the one underway in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) research necessarily takes a back seat to proven containment strategies including isolation of infected people identification and testing of their contacts and safe burial of the dead But the DRC has approved one vaccine trial and a second study piggy backed on it to assess immune response to the vaccine in the hope that the “experimental” intervention might help curb the outbreak and offer some insights for the future The unlicensed vaccine made by Merck performed exceptionally well in a large clinical trial held in Guinea during the 2015 outbreak but it came as that epidemic already was winding down and had little impact on bringing it to an end At last count in the DRC 52 cases were confirmed probable or suspected; 22 deaths had been reported; and the outbreak had spread to three locations in quateur province including a city of 12 million people on the heavily trafficked Congo River The new trial will mirror the strategy used in Guinea and vaccinate “rings” of people around cases: contacts (there are more than 600 already) contacts of contacts and front-line responders The study will follow vaccinated people to see whether they develop disease and to monitor for adverse events to assess safety For ethical reasons there is no control group however so the study will yield limited data about efficacy “The vaccine is just one part of the big response” explains Yap Boum a microbiologist with Doctors Without Borders who lives in Yaoundé and is helping the DRC’s Ministry of Public Health run the study (Studies of other experimental treatments like monoclonal antibodies and drugs may take place but none has yet been approved by the DRC government) The second study will try to extract more data from the vaccine trial Since 2015 a group led by epidemiologist Anne Rimoin from the University of California Los Angeles has been working with colleagues in the DRC on an Ebola study that has taken blood samples from more than 1000 health care workers as well as about 100 survivors and their contacts Now in collaboration with Boum and the vaccine team the group is expanding that work to collect samples from the new volunteers who are participating in the vaccine trial “Usually during outbreaks you’re scrambling to get these protocols in place and luckily we already have one that matches up quite nicely with the objective of the government and everyone who is wondering how well these vaccines might work” Rimoin says The blood work could clarify whether people have pre-existing immunity to Ebola in which case the vaccine would be boosting an existing response Analyses of various immune responses triggered by the vaccine in people who do and don’t develop Ebola also could help clarify why the vaccine succeeds or fails To properly collect and store blood samples Rimoin’s team travels to remote areas of the DRC with freezers that go down to –80°C which they power with their own generators and batteries They also cart in thousands of test tubes pipettes and other equipment to create their field lab “When we’re doing this work we spend a lot of time on logistics of how we keep samples cold” Rimoin says Although the Guinea trial found that the vaccine offered an astonishing 100% protection in vaccinated clusters it did not take blood from participants Rimoin points out that the Guinea population differs both genetically and immunologically from that of the DRC In particular she notes Ebola had never been seen in Guinea before that epidemic whereas this is the ninth outbreak in the DRC “It’s very important to get as much data as you can to understand how the vaccine works in different populations” Rimoin says Some investigators who worked on the Guinea study question the practicality and value of taking blood samples in the DRC “Blood draws would complicate significantly field operations in communities affected by the disease where blood is not just a fluid but is charged with symbolism” says Marie-Paule Kieny who helped run the study when she worked for the World Health Organization She is now director of research at INSERM the French biomedical research agency in Paris At the time of the Guinea study communities reacted violently to some outreach workers and there initially was much concern that many people would not even volunteer to participate in a vaccine study—but nearly 8000 people did Mark Feinberg who heads the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative in New York City and who worked for Merck during the trial in Guinea also questions the value of Rimoin’s study Merck’s vaccine was tested in many other studies and several of those did blood draws to help clarify the relationship between the vaccination and various immune responses Merck says it plans to use data from some 18000 vaccinated people in those trials to support its application for licensure next year “I am not sure that having additional data on immune responses in the current outbreak in DRC would add significantly to this data package” Feinberg says To Anthony Fauci who heads the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in Bethesda Maryland more data are always good “It’s always better to have material that you can examine than to not have any material” he says Linda Venczel an epidemiologist with international health nonprofit PATH in Seattle Washington who works in the DRC agrees The study is “fantastic” she says and Rimoin’s group has the trust of public health leaders in the country “Their serosurveys are very important” Venczel says “This is the kind of quantitative data that we need” Rimoin expects that their studies will uncover surprises Indeed in the 30 January issue of The Journal of Infectious Diseases Rimoin and colleagues describe how they found Ebola antibodies in hundreds of people in the DRC who live in areas that have never had a documented outbreak of the disease “There are more questions to answer than just licensure” she says a 59-year-old woman who had suffered a stroke in 2007 His constitutional and fundamental rights
