Louragan Beatriz fonce vers la côte Pacifique du Mexique

first_imgL’ouragan Beatriz fonce vers la côte Pacifique du MexiqueLes services météorologiques mexicain et américain ont annoncé que la tempête tropicale Beatriz, dans le Pacifique, s’était transformée hier en un ouragan de catégorie 1, menaçant la côte ouest du Mexique.Emise par les météorologues mexicains du SNM et relayée par le centre américain des ouragans (NHC) de Miami, une alerte à l’ouragan, de catégorie 1, est entrée en vigueur pour la côte ouest du Mexique, vers laquelle se dirige depuis lundi l’ouragan Beatriz, avec des vents à 120 km/h et des fortes pluies. Sont particulièrement menacés la station balnéaire de Zihuatanejo et les ports de Manzanillo et de Lazaro Cardenas.Dans le port touristique d’Acapulco (état de Guerrero), des vents violents ont provoqué des chutes d’arbres, faisant un blessé. Dans les montagnes environnantes, les pluies ont déjà inondé plusieurs routes. La pêche est d’ores et déjà interdite dans l’état de Colima, et la population côtière a été placée en état d’alerte, tandis que dans tout le centre de la côte Pacifique,  la navigation est déconseillée en raison de fortes vagues.

CES 2012 Sony Ericsson présenterait le LT28at

first_imgCES 2012 : Sony Ericsson présenterait le LT28atUn des appareils présentés au CES sera sans doute le LT28at, un 4,55 pouces HD, dont les entrailles font penser à une tablette.Une des sources d’informations sur les mobiles à venir est le Bluetooth SIG, où les appareils reçoivent leur certification Bluetooth. Problème : Excepté un identifiant, ils ne décrivent pas vraiment l’appareil concerné. Chez Sony Ericsson, le nouvel appareil s’appelle donc le LT28at. À ne pas confondre avec le LT26i, le Nozomi, dont l’internet a déjà parlé À lire aussiSony lance sa nouvelle liseuse, le PRS-T2Le LT28at offrirait selon le Bluetooth SIG : du LTE (de la presque-4G, mais seulement pour les US pour l’instant), un écran 4,55 pouces, avec un impressionnant 720p nommés « reality display », un module apn de 13 megapixels avec flash DEL. Une caméra frontale sera aussi présente, capable de filmer en 720p. Ericsson parle de faire passer sa ligne Xperia dans la catégorie « SuperPhone », un argument qui ne sonne pas du tout marketing…On en verra peut-être davantage au CES… espérons pour Ericsson que leur travail est vraiment super, car il y aura de la concurrence sur le salon.Le 25 décembre 2011 à 18:45 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

La terrible question de la seconde intercalaire fautil la supprimer

first_imgLa terrible question de la seconde intercalaire : faut-il la supprimer ?Le système de la “seconde intercalaire”, qui permet de rattraper le décalage éventuel entre l’heure atomique et l’heure solaire depuis 40 ans, va peut-être être supprimé cette semaine à Genève.Cela fait 10 ans que les états-membres de l’UIT (Union internationale des télécommunications) bataillent autour de la question : faut-il supprimer la seconde intercalaire ? Cette seconde est celle qui permet de corriger les éventuels décalages qui se créent entre l’heure atomique et l’heure solaire. Depuis la création de la seconde intercalaire en 1972, il y a eu 24 secondes additionnelles, (la dernière date du 31 décembre 2008). A chaque fois, la mise à l’heure se fait manuellement, soit le dernier jour de juin, ou le dernier jour de décembre. À lire aussiChangement d’heure d’hiver 2012 : pourquoi ce changement horaire ?”Il n’y a jamais de lancement de fusées ces jours-là, en raison d’un éventuel décalage, qui brouillerait tous les calculs”, a indiqué Vincent Meens, président d’un groupe d’études sur ce sujet à l’IUT. Parmi les pays préconisant la suppression, figurent la France, les Etats-Unis et d’autres pays européens, tandis que du côté des opposants à la suppression on trouve la Grande-Bretagne, la Chine et le Canada. “Le problème vient du fait que l’on ne peut pas prévoir longtemps à l’avance, s’il faut ajouter ou non une seconde intercalaire à l’heure atomique, car tout dépend de la rotation de la terre, qui peut être affectée par des événements comme des tremblements de terre”, a expliqué devant la presse M. Meens cité par l’AFP.Si la suppression de la seconde intercalaire simplifierait la vie des informaticiens, elle aboutirait aussi à une “distorsion” entre l’heure atomique et l’heure solaire, qui serait de “15 secondes tous les 100 ans”. D’où la difficulté de la décision que doivent prendre les pays membres de l’UIT lors de leur prochaine réunion qui se tient cette semaine. Toutefois, si les états-membres approuvaient la résolution en faveur de la suppression de seconde intercalaire, il faudrait qu’elle soit également approuvée par la Conférence mondiale de l’IUT sur les radiocommunications, un événement qui a lieu tous les 3 ou 4 ans, et dont la prochaine édition est prévue du 23 janvier au 17 février à Genève.  Le 19 janvier 2012 à 15:45 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Le profilage géographique au service de la biodiversité

first_imgLe profilage géographique au service de la biodiversitéPour surveiller et identifier les espèces invasives qui menacent la biodiversité, des chercheurs britanniques ont mis au point un système étonnant basé sur un outil de profilage géographique. Une technique souvent utilisée dans la recherche de… criminels.La prolifération des espèces invasives est l’une des causes principales de l’érosion de la biodiversité dans le monde. Mais identifier ces espèces pour les empêcher de nuire n’est pas chose aisée. Plusieurs techniques sont utilisées, mais les chercheurs ne parviennent pas toujours à localiser de façon précise les vecteurs d’invasion.Des scientifiques britanniques de l’université de Londres ont alors mis au point un nouveau système. Dans la revue Ecography, ils expliquent utiliser le profilage géographique, une technologie de simulation spatiale souvent utilisée par la police et les enquêteurs, notamment dans le cadre de recherches de tueurs en séries.Développé comme un outil statistique en criminologie, le profilage géographique (GP) prend en compte les emplacements spatiaux liés à des crimes pour identifier les lieux les plus susceptibles d’inclure la résidence du “criminel”. Les chercheurs de l’université de Londres affirment que cette technique peut également être utilisée pour identifier les lieux d’origine des espèces invasives, en utilisant leurs emplacements actuels comme base des mesures de lutte ciblée. Des résultats meilleurs que pour les autres approches À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Les travaux des scientifiques ont été réalisés en deux parties. Dans la première, ils ont utilisé des simulations informatiques pour comparer cette nouvelle technique à d’autres systèmes plus simples, telle que la détermination de la moyenne ou de la médiane spatiale et le calcul du centre des distances minimales, ainsi qu’à un modèle plus sophistiqué d’estimation des noyaux. Le GP a alors obtenu des résultats nettement meilleurs que n’importe laquelle de ces autres approches.Les chercheurs ont ensuite étudié 53 espèces invasives en Grande-Bretagne, allant des invertébrés marins à des arbres ligneux issus d’une grande variété d’habitats, et ont comparé leurs résultats avec les archives du Biological Records Centre (BRC). Dans 52 des 53 cas, le GP s’est montré plus efficace. Pour les auteurs de cette étude, cette technique pourrait donc permettre d’identifier plus facilement la prolifération d’une espèce étrangère et donc de mettre en place des mesures efficaces de façon plus rapide pour les éradiquer.Le 19 février 2012 à 18:28 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Le tournage de Mad Max 4 aurait ravagé une partie du désert

first_imgLe tournage de Mad Max 4 aurait ravagé une partie du désert de NamibieLes écologistes et les professionnels du tourisme en Namibie accusent le tournage du film Mad Max 4 “La rage de la route” d’être à l’origine de la destruction, fin 2012, de zones protégées dans le désert du Namib.Ecologie et cinéma ne font décidément pas bon ménage. Après Expendables 2, c’est au tour d’un autre film hollywoodien d’être accusé de ne pas avoir respecté l’environnement. En effet, selon les écologistes et les professionnels du tourisme en Namibie, le tournage du quatrième épisode de Mad Max qui a eu lieu entre juillet et décembre derniers dans une région du désert du Namib, a endommagé des zones protégées.Le tournage du film de l’Australien George Miller a donné lieu à la création “de pistes dans des zones vierges et ils m’ont même une fois empêché de promener des visiteurs dans une aire touristique car ils filmaient”, a accusé Tommy Collard, un tour-opérateur cité par l’AFP. “Le pire est que l’équipe du film a tenté d’effacer les traces en tirant des filets par dessus [le sable] et en arrachant des plantes”, ajoute-t-il. Il précise également que de petits animaux comme les lézards, les geckos ou les caméléons avaient souffert, tout comme une variété rare de cactus. Des autorisations insuffisantes pour protéger l’environnement M. Collard explique avoir “réuni beaucoup de preuves photographiques avec d’autres tours opérateurs côtiers” et l’autorité indépendante de conservation et de gestion de la côte namibienne (Nacoma) a été saisie. Le rapport qui a été commandé et remis au ministère namibien du Tourisme confirme ainsi : “oui, des zones du désert du Namib ont été détruites”. Dans ce document, l’auteur, Joh Henschel, affirme que “dans une zone, une charrue de labour a été utilisée”. Selon le rapport “le permis et les autorisations environnementales délivrés par le ministère de l’Environnement pour le projet Mad Max n’étaient pas assez précis pour encadrer la gestion du respect de l’environnement”. D’autant qu’en 2012, la Namibie a déposé une candidature auprès de l’Unesco pour que la partie méridionale du Namib soit déclarée “patrimoine mondial de l’humanité”. En effet, cette région offre un paysage de dunes cristallisées remarquablement sculptées et transformées par le vent au fil du temps.Des dégâts niés par les autorités locales À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?La commission namibienne du film (NFC), elle, a réagi en achetant une pleine page de publicité dans le quotidien gouvernemental New Era pour “réfuter les allégations” concernant ce tournage. La production “à notre satisfaction a fait face à ses responsabilités en Namibie [ …] Nous n’avons aucun grief”, indique-t-elle. La NFC va même jusqu’à accuser les médias locaux de rapporter des “contre-vérités” et de “ternir” la réputation du pays. Une opinion, plus ou moins partagée par le ministère de l’Environnement qui a diffusé un communiqué exprimant sa satisfaction sur la façon dont l’équipe du film avait mené la remise en état de la zone de tournage.Le 5 mars 2013 à 17:24 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Centrale de Fukushima un nouvel incident signalé par Tepco

first_imgCentrale de Fukushima : un nouvel incident signalé par TepcoVendredi, l’opérateur de la centrale de Fukushima, Tepco, a annoncé que le système de refroidissement du combustible nucléaire usé stocké dans la piscine du réacteur numéro 3 s’était brutalement stoppé. La raison de cet arrêt est pour l’heure inconnue.Moins d’un mois après qu’un rat a causé une panne de courant à la centrale de Fukushima, il semblerait qu’un nouvel incident se soit produit dans l’installation. Vendredi, l’opérateur de la centrale Tepco a révélé que le système de refroidissement du combustible contenu dans la piscine du réacteur n°3 s’était arrêté brutalement. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?C’est à 14H27 heure locale qu’une alarme aurait retenti au sein de l’installation. Les techniciens auraient alors constaté que le dispositif était stoppé, pour une raison qu’ils ignorent encore. Aussi, “ils tentent actuellement de comprendre la cause de cet incident”, a précisé un porte-parole du groupe. Dans l’immédiat, la situation n’est pas jugée alarmante, la température de l’eau de la piscine étant de 15,1° Celsius, selon un communiqué du groupe relayé par l’AFP. La compagnie espère ainsi remettre le système en service dans la journée.Néanmoins, ce nouvel incident souligne la vulnérabilité des installations de la centrale touchée en mars 2011 par le tsunami qui a ravagé la côte est japonaise. D’autant plus que le réacteur 3 a déjà été affecté par le premier problème de refroidissement survenu courant mars. La piscine de ce réacteur, totalement saccagé par une explosion d’hydrogène suite à la catastrophe, contient aujourd’hui un peu plus de 500 assemblages de combustible usé.Bien que la situation à la centrale de Fukushima soit considérée comme stabilisée, le site reste très fragile et beaucoup des moyens techniques provisoires mis en place pour éviter le pire sont encore en service et sont de fait très vulnérables. Au cours du dernier incident, la compagnie Tepco avait d’ailleurs été fortement critiquée pour avoir mis trois heures avant de faire état de la grave avarie au niveau du système de refroidissement.Le 5 avril 2013 à 10:53 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

JoJos Bizarre Adventures Stands All DeckedOut For The Live Action Film

first_imgStay on target The Weakest Vampires of All TimeThe Best Anime On Hulu JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, as previously announced is being adapted into a live-action film following the Diamond is Unbreakable chapter of the series. A brand new trailer has since made its way online, which shows off a bit of what you can expect to see from the story overall. The Stands characters will be using, or the unique “personas” and abilities they’re often granted the gift (or curse) of.Impeccably styled hair, familiar characters, awesome-looking effects to bring the Stands to life, and movie magic are employed to make sure this is a respectable addition to the JoJo media franchise. It also looks like it might be rife with some unintentionally comedic moments too, which is to be expected from anything JoJo if you’re familiar with the franchise.For the uninitiated, the film will follow Josuke Higashikata as he lives the life of a normal high school student. One day he’s faced with the fact that he has one of the aforementioned Stands, but so do others in town. There’s a serial killer chilling out in town taking victims one by one, so Josuke has to get to the root of the problemDiamond is Unbreakable Chapter 1 isn’t due out in Japan until August 4. It’s directed by Takashi Miike, an excellent and well-known director — you may recall his work on Audition or Ichi the Killer. The movie’s in good hands. Hopefully, it’ll be released for English-speaking audiences soon because JoJo fans are rabid when it comes to devouring any new JoJo media that comes down the pipeline. Will you be looking to check it out if it manages to come Stateside with a subtitled version?last_img read more

Check Out Star Trek Discoverys New Ship Design at SDCC

first_imgStay on target The Tick Debuts its Second Episode at SDCCMarvel Studios Debuts New Cast Members, a Thor Trailer and Infinity War “Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.”The opening lines of the Star Trek: The Next Generation (as well as The Original Series) series are telling. They establish that this show isn’t necessarily about the cast or the crew — it’s about the journey of one ship in the void. So, naturally, you want it to look like the slickest ship around, right?That’s one thing that it looks like the forthcoming Star Trek: Discovery nails. For an upcoming San Diego Comic-Con exhibit, the showrunners have prepped two delightfully retro-future posters for Discovery. One, though, clearly shows the design of the new space-boat, the eponymous Discovery.The most notable features are a delta-shaped, swept-wing body and a saucer with two major pieces, separated by a gap and connected at several points. That’s a marked step back from the original design shown last year. The first didn’t have the gap in the saucer section, and the nacelles have been pulled back a bit in the new iteration. It’s a stark look — filled with lots of sharp lines and angles — but it’s one that also really fits the apparent modern throwback aesthetic the poster and the series, in general, are looking for.Discovery’s going to have some pretty hefty expectations hoisted onto it. While the runners are pulling heavily from the setting of the Original Series, it also eschews a lot of guidelines that have driven the show for years. In particular, creator Gene Roddenberry wanted to the show to be a source of hope. So, unlike many other television shows, he didn’t want any of its main cast to have conflicts they didn’t quickly resolve. He also didn’t want to show characters being straight-up evil. These were figures to look up to. They weren’t supposed to be stuck in the same petty human crap that we’re dealing with here.In this case, though, that might be a good thing. The Discovery looks pretty aggressive and utilitarian — reflecting the series’ earlier spot in the time line. Because it predates Kirk and pals, it also shows people just haven’t figured out their shit yet. And, over time, they do.“The thing we’re taking from Roddenberry is how we solve those conflicts,” showrunner Aaron Harberts told Entertainment Weekly. “So we do have our characters in conflict, we do have them struggling with each other, but it’s about how they find a solution and work through their problems.”Optimism has been Star Trek’s MO since the beginning, and it’ll be interesting to see if Discovery can manage to feel appropriately Star Trek enough or fizzle out as a failed gritty reboot one of the few utopic settings in the genre.With Discovery slated to premiere on CBS’ All Access on September 24, we won’t have to wait long to find out. And if you’re in San Diego between Thursday and Sunday, you can stop by the Michael J. Wolf Fine Arts Gallery for an exhibit featuring props and art. You even have a chance to grab one of the posters sporting the newly designed ship. Badges aren’t required either, so even if you’re in town without a pass, you should be good.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Smart Plants May Be Able to Detect Radon and Mold in the

first_imgStay on target Researchers have been looking for new ways to improve the safety of our homes. One possible approach has been to genetically engineer plants to make them able to act as “detectors” of sorts. These would be relatively cheap to make, given that they simply grow, and would be far easier to maintain than traditional radon and mold detectors.Right now, though, teams are a bit far off. A team published a new paper detailing past efforts to accomplish similar goals. Like when scientists modified to tobacco plants to produce a fluorescent orange protein when exposed to disease-causing bacteria.To pull this off, researchers have been looking for specific chemical markers that are predictors of something else. For instance, the standard smoke detector works by allowing a tiny bit of radioactive material to decay, sending energized particles to another detector. If there’s smoke, the particles won’t make it and the message gets blocked.In much the same way, scientists are looking at volatile organic compounds. These are an extremely broad category of chemicals, but they are also relatively specific. For an accurate test, you can reduce the scope of the search to a just a few compounds, then isolate the genetic sequences that control for the plant’s response to them. And that’s precisely what the team did — dialing up the reactivity of the plants. Then, with special glasses, researchers were able to see the fluorescent light and effectively test the presence of bacteria.The potential is pretty vast and could allow for us to screen all kinds of domestic pollutants. They could be built into air vents into what the scientists dubbed “living walls” that could screen for practically anything. And this technology likely wouldn’t take long. Though, for now, the plants would be limited to pigments that glow under UV. Someday researchers hope to find a protein that will be visible to the naked eye, but that’s a ways off.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

The Ultimate Super Smash Bros Character Guide Ness

first_imgStay on target Ness Swings and Hits!Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is huge. Not just in terms of hype and importance and sales potential, but just in terms of sheer stuff. The Nintendo Switch mascot fighter features over a hundred stages, nearly a thousand songs, and too many Pokemon and items and Assist Trophies to think of crammed onto a cartridge you can plan on the go or on a TV. When you have as many big franchises as Nintendo, putting them all in one game will make that game is very big boy indeed.But the biggest, most exciting thing about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is its mind-blowing, heartwarming roster of playable characters. Fighting games pride themselves not just on the strength of their mechanics but the strength of its fighters, especially in a crossover fighters like this. And Super Smash Bros. Ultimate crushes all rivals by including every single playable character from the across the four previous games in the twenty-year-old series. Include the new combatants and so far we have over 70 fighters to wrap our heads around. We’re excited, but we’re also intimidated. So to get ready for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, every day, character by character, we’re creating the ultimate guide to all of its characters. Today’s fighter: Ness. ‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ Was Final Mission From Late Nintendo President‘Undertale’s’ Sans Is Basically a Brand New ‘Sma… center_img Who Are They?Ness is the star of EarthBound, or Mother 2. He’s a psychic boy who travels across a satirical take on 1950s America in this strange yet sentimental RPG from Japanese essayist Shigesato Itoi. Not many people know about Ness. There are three Mother games but only 1 and 2 released in America and for decades it was just 2. But EarthBound fandom is one of the most intense niches of Nintendo fandom.Smash HistoryEarthBound didn’t sell so hot on the Super Nintendo in America. Maybe it’s because marketing said the game stank. So when Ness showed up as a secret character in Smash 64 it was a really great secret because I sure didn’t know who he was. Appearing in every Smash game since, Ness is exponentially more well-known because of the fighting franchise of franchises.What Looks New in Ultimate?EarthBound is a weird series, and Ness is an appropriately weird character. His moves are split between boyhood staples like baseball bats or yo-yos and his finicky mental powers like the PK Flash explosion or PK Thunder ball you must guide into yourself to rocket towards recovery. This all appears largely the same in Smash Ultimate, aside from a smattering of tweaks to numbers. However, EarthBound is also about friends and connections, so teammates Paula and Poo now appear in the Final Smash.Our Hopes?Honestly, most of our EarthBound hopes revolve around an American release for Mother 3. But for Ness in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? I don’t know, make his recovery a little easier to control. Make his baseball bat, if not home-run contest levels, a bit more impactful. Make us feel better about this game where a child gets beat up by soldiers and witches and pro-wrestler monster cats.Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases Dec. 7 for Nintendo Switch. Until we can play more for ourselves, changes we talk about here are mostly speculation.

Patty Murray appeared in Vancouver on Friday, rallying the party faithful at a get-out-the-vote event ahead of Tuesday’s election.Inslee told his fellow Democrats that he’s Tim Probst’s No. 1 fan. All three are on Tuesday’s ballot.Probst is locked in a tight battle with Rep. Lynda Wilson, R-Vancouver, for the 17th Legislative District Senate seat, and the outcome could decide which party holds the majority for the next two years.

Probe faults states Title IX determination

first_imgWashington failed to ensure that school districts are providing equal access to athletic activities for boys and girls under Title IX, a lengthy Department of Education investigation found after a Vancouver man’s complaints.In light of 2011 allegations by Mark Rossmiller, the federal Office of Civil Rights found the state’s Equity and Civil Rights Office incorrectly determined whether districts were providing athletic opportunities for boys and girls. The specific violation lies in a “pretty technical part” of Title IX, said Callie Sechrist, director of Equity and Civil Rights for the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction.In order to comply with Title IX, the federal law banning schools from discriminating on the basis of gender, school athletic departments must pass one of three markers under the Three-Part Test. The test determines whether or not a school is offering equal opportunities for boys and girls.Part One of that three-part test requires districts provide sports opportunities proportionate to their student body. For example, if boys make up 60 percent of a school and girls 40 percent, then 60 percent of the athletic opportunities must be available for boys and 40 percent for girls.last_img read more

Lifting up Latino culture literacy at Clark College celebration

first_imgSince the late 1920s, most countries on this planet have celebrated some version of International Children’s Day. Some do it on the first or second weekend in June, or earlier in spring when life is new; others have adopted Nov. 20 as Universal Children’s Day.The United States has never declared any official, ongoing, annual children’s day or holiday, but the American Library Association has adopted Mexico’s annual observance, El Dia del Nino (The Day of the Child, always April 30), as its special day to promote literacy among children of all backgrounds, El Dia del Libro (The Day of the Book).Clark College has adopted the same occasion, for the same reason. On Friday night, it hosts its annual family-friendly “Celebration of My People,” that is, its “Celebracion de Mi Gente: El Dia del Nino/El Dia del Libro.” Free and open to everyone, the event foregrounds Latino culture as well as the value of literacy; it will feature bilingual performances and storytelling, dancing, face painting, environmentally sustainable crafts and delicious snacks. Oswald the Penguin, Clark College’s mascot, will be on hand for photos and visits with children.last_img read more

We had a win away and they beat us at home. We know it will be a competitive and physical game and we’ll have to be at our best if we want to pick up all three points. If we can keep performing like we have then I think eventually those performances will turn into the wins that have so far eluded us.”last_img read more
