NA MWAMVUA MWINYI,CHALINZE .

HOSPITAL ya wilaya ya Chalinze ,Msoga mkoani Pwani ,inakabiliana na changamoto za uzazi ambapo baadhi ya akinamama wamekuwa wakitumia dawa za mitishamba ili kujifungua haraka hali inayosababisha wakati wa kujifungua kuwa na uchungu mkali ,mtoto kuchoka na kutokwa damu nyingi. 

Mganga mfawidhi katika hospital hiyo Patricia Kihula ,alisema wapo akinamama wajamzito wanaoshikwa uchungu kisha kunywa mizizi ama dawa za kienyeji jambo ambalo ni hatari kwa mama na mtoto. Alisema kwasasa wanaendelea kutoa elimu katika klinik . 

Patricia alisema ,hali hiyo inasababisha mama akiwa tayari kanywa mizizi mchungu unakuwa mkali kabla ya njia kufunguka na mtoto kuchoka toka akiwa tumboni . “Tunatoa elimu kwa jamii wasiwe na tabia hiyo ,”na sisi tumeanza kupambana na tabia hiyo kwa kuwapa chai kabla ya kujifungua kwani tumegundua wanapewa dawa hizo ndani ya chai “. 

” Tumetoa maagizo chai inapaswa kutolewa kituoni hapa hapa ,na chai ikitoka nyumbani tunamwelekeza aliyeleta chai aanze kuionja ili kujiridhisha isiwe na dawa za kienyeji”alifafanua Patricia. Patricia alieleza kuwa , hakuna kesi ya kifo cha mtoto ama mama na badala yake zipo kesi mbili kila mwezi, za mama kuwa na uchungu mkali ,kutokwa damu nyingi au mtoto kutokwa kachoka sana . 

“Endapo inatokea mama kutokwa damu nyingi tunawapelekea hospital ya rufaa ya Tumbi kwa ajili ya upasuaji ili kuokoa maisha ya mama na mtoto na akitokwa damu nyingi pia huwa tukimchunguza kujua chanzo na hupatiwa matibabu” Patricia aliiomba akinamama wajawazito waache kutumia vitu,ama madawa ya majani,mitishamba ,dawa za kienyeji kwa kuweka kwenye njia ya uke ama kunywa bali wakisikia uchungu wakimbilie hospital kupata matibabu ya uhakika. 


Nae mganga mkuu wa halmashauri ya Chalinze, Rahim Hangai ,alisema wamepokea kesi za aina hiyo ambapo wameanza kutoa elimu ili kupunguza tatizo hilo . Alielezea ,wakitumia dawa hizo husababisha kupata uchungu wa kasi na kupasua kizazi ama mtoto akafa kabla ya kuzaliwa . Dk.Hangai alisema, dawa za kienyeji haziongezi uchungu ,waepuke madhara ambayo yataleta athari kwao. Mamamjamzito Hamisa Kheri alisema wengi wao wanajidanganya kutumia dawa hizo ili kuzaa haraka bila ya kuwa na uchungu kwa muda mrefu.

Sebuah Mitologi Asal Usul Putri Duyung Menurut Kaca Mata Ilmuwan Serta Agama
Sebuah mitologi yang secara ilmiah masih menjadi rahasia, manusia setengah ikan ini dianggap ada dan diakui oleh para ilmuwan. Banyak Negara di dunia ini yang memiliki ceritanya masing-masing mengenai makhluk setengah ikan yang berfisik manusia ini.

Di Indonesia, makhluk ini disebut Putri Duyung. Sampai-sampai dalam dunia kartun, sosok putri duyung sangat digemari oleh anak-anak dan remaja putri khususnya. Penasaran kan dengan cerita lebih jauh tentang asal usul Putri Duyung?

Bagaimana kacamata ilmuwan dan juga pandangan Islam mengenai makhluk bernama Putri Duyung ini? Lalu, mitologi masyarakat Indonesia mengenai Putri Duyung seperti apa ya? Mari baca terus penjelasan kami di bawah ini!

Asal-Usul Putri Duyung sebagai putri yang Terkutuk

Asal-usul Putri Duyung menurut sejarah pertama kali ditemukan dalam sebuah naskah kuno, dan peninggalan-peninggalan dari kebudayaan Assyria yang diperkirakan ada sejak tahun 1000 SM. Seorang arkeolog menemukan adanya kebudayaan Assyria yang kala itu percaya dengan adanya putri duyung sebagai seorang putri Raja yang dikutuk oleh alam. Kutukan ini diperolehnya karena putri duyung membunuh suaminya sendiri, lalu ia menceburkan dirinya ke dalam laut dan berubah wujud menjadi seekor ikan yang bertubuh manusia. Hanya bagian kaki saja yang berubah menjadi ikan, bagian badannya masih tetap dalam wujud manusia.

Asal-usul Putri Duyung sebagai Pengawal Dewa dan Dewi Laut

Sebuah Mitologi Asal Usul Putri Duyung Menurut Kaca Mata Ilmuwan Serta Agama
Sebuah Mitologi Asal Usul Putri Duyung Menurut Kaca Mata Ilmuwan Serta Agama
Mitologi Assyria berbeda dengan mitologi bangsa Yunani dan Romawi yang menganggap putri duyung adalah pengawal Dewa dan Dewi yang ada di laut. Putri Duyung sengaja diciptakan untuk mengawal Dewa dan Dewi dalam laut seperti Posein, Neptune dan Triton. Pengawal kerajaan dan menemani para Dewa dan Dewi dalam perjalanan mengelilingi laut menjadi tujuan diciptakannya putri duyung.

Dalam mitologi Yunani, putri duyung tidak mengenal jenis kelamin karena menurut mereka putri duyung itu bisa laki-laki dan juga bisa perempuan. Mereka juga meyakini bahwa putri duyung memiliki kekuatan yang sangat dahsyat.

Asal-Usul Putri Duyung sebagai seorang Nelayan yang dikutuk

Mitologi Jepang menjelaskan bahwa putri duyung sebenarnya adalah seorang nelayan laut yang dikutuk. Mereka mengaitkan cerita mitologi putri duyung dengan kisah seorang nelayan yang dikutuk oleh karena dirinya yang melanggar perjanjian. Alkisah menceritakan, nelayan berjanji pada gurunya untuk tidak memakan makanan yang sumbernya dari hewan, namun nelayan itu mengingakrinya. Justru membunuh banyak hewan-hewan dan diambil dagingnya lalu ia makan. Pengingkaran ini membuat gurunya geram dan akhirnya ia dikutuk menjadi seekor ikan yang menghilang ditelan laut. Jadilah ia manusia setengah ikan di laut.
Fakta tentang Putri Duyung menurut Kajian Ilmiah

Meskipun cerita asal usul dan bukti-bukti fosil banyak ditemukan diberbagai belahan dunia, hingga kini putri duyung masih tetap menjadi misteri. Mengenai benar atau tidaknya keberadaan manusia setengah ikan ini di laut dunia, hingga sekarang masih belum dapat dibuktikan, bahkan setelah para ahli biologi yang tergabung dalam WAB (World Association Biological) melakukan penelitian panjang.

Hasil penelitian yang menghabiskan dana hingga 3,2 juta US itu hanya membuahkan penemuan-penemuan hewan laut langka yang memang secara fisik memiliki kemiripan dengan ciri fisik putri duyung dalam mitologi dunia. Ya, sedikitnya ada 3 hewan tersebut. Dugong, Manatee, dan Sea cow, itulah namanya.

Dugong adalah mamalia laut yang ditemukan di perairan dangkal pantai India hingga Australia. Warnanya coklat kelabu, tubuhnya panjang sekitar 2,7 meter, dan hidup hingga usia 70 tahun.

Mantee adalah ikan sepanjang 2 meter dengan bentuk tubuh bagian atas mirip seperti wanita. Memiliki rambut panang dan hidup di perairan karibia hingga Amerika Selatan persis sama dengan Jenglot dalam bentuk raksasa.

Sea Cow (Sapi Laut) adalah mamalia laut bertubuh besar dengan panjang 7,6 meter. Bentuknya seperti sapi hanya saja kaki belakangnya tidak ada. Bagian tubuh belakangnya sama seperti ikan pada umumnya, memiliki sirip dan bersisik.

Nah, itulah beberapa hal yang saya dapat ceritakan seputar Asal Usul Putri Duyung. Terimakasih sudah menyempatkan waktu anda membaca artikel ini, semoga bermanfaat.

          NASA is about to 'touch' a star for the first time — here are the hellish conditions the Parker Solar Probe must survive      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

nasa parker solar probe plus sun mission illustration

  • NASA's Parker Solar Probe is scheduled to launch Saturday, August 11 around 3:33 a.m. EDT.
  • To "touch" the sun and study its weather, the $1.5-billion mission must survive hellish conditions.
  • Temperatures will reach a searing 2,500 degrees when the spacecraft zooms through the star's atmosphere at 430,000 mph.
  • Once the probe runs out of fuel, pretty much everything but its carbon heat shield will be destroyed.

Touching a star isn't easy. The sun is an enormous, searing-hot orb of plasma that generates a chaos of magnetic fields and can unleash deadly blasts of particles at a moment's notice.

But that is precisely what NASA plans to do — 24 times or more — with its car-size Parker Solar Probe (PSP). The goal of the $1.5-billion mission is to edge within 4 million miles of the sun, which is close enough to study the star's mysterious atmosphere, solar wind, and other properties.

Information gathered by the probe may help space weather forecasters better predict violent solar outbursts that can overwhelm electrical grids, harm satellites, disrupt electronics, and possibly lead to trillions of dollars' worth of damage.

The spacecraft is slated to launch from the Florida coast on Saturday at 3:33 a.m. EDT, should weather cooperate, though NASA has through August 23 to fire off its probe. PSP will reach the sun a few months after launch.

Here are some of the brutal conditions and tremendous challenges NASA's probe will have to survive to pull off its unprecedented mission.

The tricky process of touching a star

The first hurdle PSP needs to clear is Earth itself.

To make the trip, the probe will ride atop a Delta 4 Heavy rocket, which is one of the most powerful operational launch vehicles on Earth (though not quite as powerful as SpaceX's new Falcon Heavy system).

NASA chose the rocket because it's surprisingly hard to get to the sun, which is 93 million miles away.

Earth orbits the sun at a speed of 67,000 mph, and so does anything launched off of the planet. To fall toward the sun, PSP will have to slow down by 53,000 mph, NASA said in a video about its mission.

Three different rocket stages (one firing after the other runs out of fuel) in the Delta 4 Heavy will help considerably with boosting PSP toward that goal, but it's not enough to repeatedly fly the probe close to the sun.

Instead, the rocket will shoot the probe on a path toward Venus, a planet it will fly past seven times over six years. The world's strong gravitational field will help gradually absorb PSP's "sideways motion" imparted by Earth and direct it closer and closer to the sun.

The consequence of this orbital dance is that PSP will fall toward the sun faster and faster after each pass. On its first orbit of the sun in November 2018, the probe will be some 15.4 million miles from the sun. About 21 orbits later, in December 2024, it will sneak within 4 million miles of the sun, traveling at a speed of nearly 430,000 mph relative to the star.

Achieving such a velocity would make PSP the fastest a human object in space. It's nearly 120 miles per second — fast enough to fly from New York to Tokyo in less than a minute — and 3.3 times as fast as NASA's Juno spacecraft, which zips past Jupiter at speeds of 130,000 mph.

How to fly through hell and back

During its journey, PSP must withstand sunlight 3,000 times more powerful than occurs at Earth. Outside the spacecraft, in the outer fringes of the sun's corona or atmosphere, temperatures may reach 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit — hot enough to liquify steel.

The probe also must contend with a "solar wind" of charged, high-energy particles that can mess with electronics.

The key to protecting the probe, as well as its sensors for measuring the sun's magnetic fields and solar wind, is a special heat shield called the Thermal Protection System.

Made of 4.5 inches of carbon foam sandwiched between two sheets of carbon composites, the eight-feet-wide shield will absorb and deflect solar energy that might otherwise fry the probe. A water cooling system will also help prevent the spacecraft's solar panels from roasting and keep the spacecraft a cozy 85 deg F.

PSP's mission is to crack two 60-year-old mysteries: why the sun has a solar wind at all, and how the corona — the star's outer atmosphere — can heat up to millions of degrees. Both factors are key to understanding what leads to potentially devastating solar storms.

"That defies the laws of nature. It's like water rolling uphill," Nicola Fox, a solar physicist at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, said during a NASA briefing in 2017.

"Until you actually go there and touch the sun, you can't answer these questions," said Fox, who's a project scientist for the new mission.

You can watch the Parker Solar Probe launch toward the sun on Saturday, August 11, around 3 a.m. EDT via NASA TV.

The probe's mission will end many years from now, after it runs out of the propellant it needs to keep its heat shield pointed at the sun. When that happens, the star's blistering heat will burn up "90% of the spacecraft," science writer Shannon Stirone said on Twitter — but not the heat shield itself.

"The heat shield will then orbit the sun for millions of years," she said.

          NASA Satellites Assist in Estimating Abundance of Key Wildlife Species      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Climate and land-use change are shrinking natural wildlife habitats around the world. Yet despite their importance to rural economies and natural ecosystems, remarkably little is known about the geographic distribution of most wild species – especially those that migrate seasonally over large areas.

By combining NASA satellite imagery with wildlife surveys conducted by state natural resources agencies, a team of researchers at Utah State University and the University of Maryland, and the U.S. Geological Survey modeled the effects of plant productivity on populations of mule deer and mountain lions. Specifically, they mapped the abundance of both species over a climatically diverse region spanning multiple western states. The findings were published in Global Change Biology.

These models provide new insights into how differences in climate are transmitted through the food chain, from plants to herbivores and then to predators. Prey and predator abundance both increased with plant productivity, which is governed by precipitation and temperature. 

Conversely, animals responded to decreases in food availability by moving and foraging over larger areas, which could lead to increased conflict with humans.

“Climatically driven changes in primary production propagate through trophic levels,” said David Stoner, lead author of the study and researcher in Wildland Resources at USU. “We expected to see that satellite measurements of plant productivity would explain the abundance of deer. However, we were surprised to see how closely the maps of productivity also predicted the distribution of the mountain lion, their major predator.” 

The study also reveals a disruption in the way scientists study the biosphere. 

“Up until about a decade ago, we were limited to analyzing landscapes through highly simplified maps representing a single point in time,” said Joseph Sexton, chief scientist of terraPulse, Inc. and a coauthor on the study. “This just doesn’t work in regions experiencing rapid economic or environmental change—the map is irrelevant by the time it’s finished.” 

Now, given developments in machine learning, “big data” computation and the “cloud,” ecologists and other scientists are studying large, dynamic ecosystems in ever-increasing detail and resolution. 

“We’re now mining global archives of satellite imagery spanning nearly forty years, we’re updating our maps in pace with ecosystem changes and we’re getting that information out to government agencies and private land managers working in the field,” Stoner said.

The authors predict that, by enabling land managers to monitor rangeland and agricultural productivity, forest loss and regrowth, urban growth and the dynamics of wildlife habitat, the expanding stream of information will help humanity adapt to climate and other environmental changes. “State wildlife agencies are tasked with estimating animal abundance in remote and rugged habitats, which is difficult and expensive,” Stoner said. “Integration of satellite imagery can help establish baseline population estimates, monitor environmental conditions and identify populations at risk to climate and land-use change.”

Prompt Launch on Need fast crew rescue capability in LEO and across all of CisLunar Space is one of many important possible uses for the SLS and International Orion to help reduce some of the high risks of human LEO and Cislunar missions. Full launcher reusability adds mass and reduces by about 50% a launcher’s LEO payload when compared to a similar but non-reusable launcher. That mass inefficiency of a fully reusable launcher equals about twice the direct damage to the Ozone Layer when compared to a similar but lower mass non-reusable launcher doing the same mission. If Congress wants full SLS reusability, that option should be quite doable. Note also: “Previous studies have suggested that lunar soil and water ice in certain craters of the moon may be mined and converted to fuel. Assuming that such technologies are established at the time of a mission to Mars, the MIT group has found that taking a detour to the moon to refuel would reduce the mass of a mission upon launch by 68 percent.” And, “The paper shows clearly that leveraging water and other valuable in-space resources will lower the cost for human exploration of the solar system,” says Gerstenmaier, who was not involved in the research.” From: “To save on weight, a detour to the moon is the best route to Mars” At: http://news.mit.edu/2015/mars-mission-save-weight-fuel-on-moon-1015

The BFR has the financial genes of a 150 ton payload reusable LEO space bomber/fast response launcher system. SpaceX has been getting government money for Fast Response/Prompt Global Strike launch capabilities from almost since it began. Hundreds or thousands of BFR flights to haul endless amounts of energy weak and low Isp chemical rocket propellant up through the fragile Ozone Layer, and destroy some of it each time, while adding endless amounts of CO2 to our atmosphere in order to build colonies on Mars is not an environmentally, economically, and politically sustainable plan. High Isp propellants and other resources mined on the Moon and used though-out Cislunar Space would have far less negative environmental effects on the Home Planet. America's SLS launching various large and reusable space tugs and upper stages that have efficient solar electric or nuclear thermal space propulsion systems will offer cost effective high Isp transportation systems to help explore and mine the resources and high Isp propellants available on the Moon, asteroids, and Mars.

          Por que cena de novela infantil “As Aventuras de Poliana” (SBT) está gerando sério debate?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

novela sbt 400x800
Iexandre/Twitter

A novela “As Aventuras de Poliana” gerou um grande debate depois de sua exibição no SBT na tarde da última quarta-feira (8).

Em uma das cenas, as personagens Késsya e Helô, interpretadas pelas atrizes Duda Pimenta e Eliana de Souza, respectivamente, discutiam de quem era a culpa do racismo contra a população negra com base em uma acusação recebida pela menina.

Cena de novela do SBT causa polêmica

Na novela do SBT, Kessya é acusada injustamente de roubar e vandalizar a estátua da escola. Porém, o mal entendido foi logo esclarecido e a menina foi inocentada.

Após a confusão, Kessya foi conversar com Helô, a coordenadora da escola. Neste momento, a menina afirma ter sido vítima de racismo.

Para Kessya, a desconfiança sobre o seu envolvimento no roubo da estátua surgiu pelo fato de ela ser negra, a acusação feita a ela não teria sido feita com colegas brancos. “Porque eu sou negra todo mundo fica desconfiado.”

Helô, então, rebate e diz que este tipo de diferença não acontece na escola. Quando a menina responde que um dos maiores culpados pelo racismo são os racistas, a coordenadora responde que "não, [é] a nossa cabeça" que a mudança para o cenário de preconceito racial pode ser transformado com mudanças feitas no próprio pensamento de quem sofre este tipo de violência.

“Para que as pessoas parem de ver nós negros como diferentes, nós precisamos parar de nos ver como diferentes”, diz Helô, que explica ter passado pelas mesmas questões vividas pela aluna.

Por fim, Kessya diz entender a posição de Helô sobre o assunto agradece pela conversa realizada na sala da coordenadora.

Veja grande parte da cena postada por um usuário do Twitter:

No vídeo postado no canal do YouTube da novela, a cena começa aos 8 minutos e 5 segundos:

Repercussão da cena

A cena envolvendo a conversa entre as duas personagens repercutiu nas redes sociais e movimentou discussões acerca do tema.

Muitos internautas reforçaram que a abordagem feita sobre o racismo pela novela do SBT dá a entender que o racismo é culpa dos negros, e não dos racistas, como apontou a menina durante a cena.

O que o SBT diz?

Em nota, o SBT posicionou-se sobre o assunto. Para a emissora, a novela “As Aventuras de Poliana” tem como principal objetivo discutir questões sociais como a luta contra o preconceito racial e que visou combater o estereótipo de que o negro é "culpado à primeira vista".

“A novela tem o papel de debater questões sociais como o enfrentamento ao racismo, citando vários exemplos. Prova disso, no capítulo 60, no ar nesta terça-feira, houve a cena aonde o texto exalta que o racismo é coisa de gente ignorante. E no capítulo 61 ainda no mesmo contexto que foi ao ar ontem, a coordenadora (personagem) do colégio quis convencer a menina que aquele estereótipo de que o negro é sempre culpado à primeira vista não pode prevalecer, mostrando-a uma nova perspectiva. Se instalou uma polêmica que não existe. A novela é uma obra de ficção para entreter e não polemizar.”

          I Gave Up Dairy For a Week, and These Were the Exact Results      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Dairy and I have had a very strange relationship throughout my life. I have always been a big fan of dairy since I was younger. I often ate macaroni and cheese, went out for pizza every Friday with my friends, and lived at the ice cream shop during Summer. However, dairy has not always been a big fan of me. When I was in elementary school, the doctors were convinced that there may be a possibility that I was lactose intolerant. I was having occasional stomach issues and bloating, so medical experts felt that it might have been tied to dairy. When they told me to limit my dairy consumption, my 8-year-old self was not having it. I gave up my morning chocolate milk for chocolate soy milk (I still remember the brand - 8th Continent) but drew the line there, always finding a way to get myself to the cheese and the ice cream even if I knew I was not really allowed to have it.

Fast forward a few years and I grew out of those dreaded stomach issues (therapists think it had more to do with anxiety than diet, after all). However, I had the nagging feeling that the small issues I did still experience - the bloating, the postnasal drip, the interrupted sleep cycles - may still be connected in some way to my dairy intake. So I devised a plan!

For one week, I cut dairy out of my daily routine. This meant no cheese (my biggest problem), no butter, no ice cream. Here's what happened.

I Had to Stock Up on Healthy Snacks

I'm one of those people who, when hungry, will eat anything that is immediately available to them at the moment. To help prepare myself for those hungry moments and keep myself away from the quick dairy-filled fixes, I made sure to stop at Trader Joe's at the start of the week. I picked up a bunch of different fruit and vegetables that I knew I could just grab and snack on while in between meals. If you are afraid you won't have time to go food shopping beforehand, look into convenient and affordable meal delivery such as Freshly - they have plenty of dairy-free options that arrive fully prepared to your door. I also made sure to keep an eye on my water intake each day. I noticed that staying hydrated and drinking water often helped me with my dairy cravings.

I Had to Find Good Dairy Alternatives

Thankfully, eating nondairy has become increasingly easier as time goes on. In the beginning of the week when I was craving Cheez-Its, I instead picked up the vegan version. Cheese doodles, which I eat only on occasion but love more than anyone will probably ever know, were subbed out for Hippeas, a vegan chickpea puff snack.


I Found a Way to Substitute Dairy For Something Else I Love

I am a big fan of sandwiches and would usually get a grilled chicken, brie, and apple sandwich for lunch or another version with cheddar cheese. To help satisfy my craving for certain tastes, I replaced the dairy in my takeout and home cooking with other tasty alternatives like spices and dressings. For instance, instead of having brie in my sandwich, I added in some turkey bacon, or I would replace the goat cheese in my salad for zucchini, yellow squash, and a squeeze of lemon.


My Bloating Went Away

Ever since I can remember, I've always had an issue with bloating - I wake up feeling light and energetic, but by the time evening rolls around, I feel full of air and sluggish. From cutting dairy out of my diet, I did notice that my bloating was nearly gone, which meant less pain and more comfort. Cheese, which usually contains high amounts of sodium, causes me the worst kind of bloating. By going cheese-free for a week and drinking more water in lieu, the decrease in bloating proved to be significant.

I Could Breathe Better

I have always had an issue with my sinuses. I am known to get a sinus infection at least once a year, and I can't fly without neti-potting after. I usually wake up with a stuffy nose. However, when I cut dairy out of my diet, I found that I was not getting postnasal drip anymore and my throat didn't have that annoying tickle in it that usually appears during the warmer months.

I Slept Soundly

By the middle of the week, I started noticing that I was falling asleep at a decent hour and actually staying asleep. Although dairy contains tryptophan, which is said to help people sleep, the high-fat content of dairy-filled dishes were giving me painful indigestion and stomach discomfort. By canceling them out of my meals, I was in turn making my meals lighter and easier on my body's digestive system.

My Final Thoughts

Although I don't know if I would be able to give up dairy completely (I just love my cheese too much!), I will definitely become more aware of how much dairy I eat each day. I have set a goal for myself that I will only allow myself to have dairy with one meal each day to help remedy some of the issues that I believe are linked to it - this means either cheese in a lunch sandwich or cream in a dinner pasta, but not both. You never know, maybe one day I will take the plunge and go fully dairy-free.

Russia’s retaliation to new U.S. sanctions is likely going to place American access to space at risk.

To get heavy payloads into orbit, American rockets like the Atlas V use Russia’s powerful RD-180 engine—an engine that previous rounds of U.S. sanctions have studiously exempted.

But now, following the Trump administration’s decision to retaliate for the Kremlin poisoning a former spy and his daughter, Russian officials are threatening to block sales of the RD-180 to the Americans.

          Карл Саган – вчений українського походження, який простими словами розкривав таємниці Всесвіту      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
До Карла Саргана про космос говорили складними термінами, і переважно в закритих лабораторіях або ж на наукових конференціях. А от він умів настільки легко пояснювати складні матерії, що Карла розуміли й діти. Загалом його програму "Космос: персональна подорож" переглянули майже півмільярда людей у 50 країнах світу.

Обидвоє його батьків мали українське коріння. Мама – з містечка Сасів Львівської області, тато – з Кам'янця-Подільського. Обоє не мали вищої освіти, тож коли син почав ставити надто складні питання про кількість зірок на небі або ж чому Місяць то круглий, то у вигляді серпика, просто відвели його в бібліотеку. Ось тут він і знайде відповіді.

Коли хлопець заявив, що хоче стати астрономом, дідусь тільки здивовано перепитав: "І як ти цим збираєшся заробляти на життя?" Хіба міг той уявити, що дивакувате захоплення онука перетворить його на супер-зірку наукового світу.

Карл ніколи не боявся робити сенсаційні заяви. Доки одні запевняли, що на Венері під щільними шарами атмосфери буяє життя, як і на планеті Земля, Саган, якому ще й не виповнилося 30-ти років, насмілився заявити, що там палюча пустеля.

А коли зміни кольорів на поверхні Марса пояснювали розвитком живих організмів, він констатував – очевидно, це штормові вітри, які переносять пилюку. З роками ці теоріії підтверджували, і до астронома дедалі частіше почали звертатись із NASA. До прикладу, він був у складі комісії, яка визначала, куди саме приземлитись марсоходам "Вікінг один" та "Вікінг два". 


Карл Саган

Наш Всесвіт такий гігантський, що Саган був переконаний – ми не єдині живі істоти у ньому, тому намагався передавати сигнали в космос. У 1974 році з обсерваторії Аресибо в Пуерто-Рико відправив радіосигнал до сузір'я Геркулеса, яке розташоване за 25 тисяч світлових років. У ньому зашифрували інформацію про сонячну систему, людство та спіраль ДНК .

Передав Саган і матеріальні предмети – одразу чотири апарати серії "Піонер" та "Вояджер" понесли із собою в незвідані простори малюнки із зображенням людини, записи привітань на 55-ти мовах світу, звернення генсека ООН і президента США Джиммі Картера.

У 1990 році космічний зонд "Вояджер-1" завершив місію, зробивши детальні зображення Юпітера, Сатурна, Урана та Нептуна. Далі він мав рухатися своєю траєкторією до кордону зоряного простору Сонця. Саган натомість попросив астронавтів дати зонду команду розвернутись і сфотографувати космос. Тоді ж зробили світлину Землі на відстані 6 мільярдів кілометрів. 

Кожен герой і боягуз, кожен творець і руйнівник цивілізацій, кожен король і селянин, кожна закохана пара, кожен брехливий політик, кожна "суперзірка", кожен святий і грішник в історії нашого виду жили тут — на цій порошинці, підвішеній у сонячному промінні,
– прокоментував тоді вчений.

Його часто запрошували прочитати лекцію, але у пріоритеті завжди були телешоу – щовечора їх дивились 10 мільйонів глядачів, тож це був ідеальний спосіб надихати людей на розкриття таємниць Всесвіту. Згадуючи своїх батьків, закликав заохочувати своїх дітей до пізнання нового. Їхні питання: чому трава зелена, а небо блакитне – насправді дуже глибокі, а чомусь дорослі називають їх безглуздими.

"Набагато краще, коли ви скажете: "Це чудове питання. Я не знаю відповіді, але спробуємо пошукати разом". Або ж: "Відповіді на це питання поки що немає. Можливо, коли ти підростеш, ти знайдеш її", – говорив Саган.

Petra Kvitová prohrála v třetím kole v Montrealu 3:6, 2:6 s Nizozemkou Kiki Bertensovou. Ta tak po deváté nasazené Karolíně Plíškové vyřadila další českou tenistku. Turnajová osmička Kvitová proti ní uhrála jen o jeden game víc než její krajanka v druhém kole. Neuspěly ani dvojnásobné grandslamové vítězky ve čtyřhře Kateřina Siniaková a Barbora Krejčíková, vypadly už v druhém kole. Siniaková tak přišla o možnost stát se po kanadském turnaji světovou deblovou jedničkou.

          Space Shuttle astronaut says he thought he saw an alien in the cargo bay      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
NASA astronauts are usually pretty dismissive of conspiracy theorist claims of aliens hanging out around Earth. You see a lot of weird stuff when you're in space, and not everything is easily explained, but trained scientists are usually pretty skeptical and rarely jump to conclusions. That's what makes new claims by ex-NASA Space Shuttle astronaut Leland Melvin so incredibly intriguing. In a brief exchange with a UFO investigator on Twitter, Melvin was asked what the thinks about alien theories, and whether or not he believes that there is intelligent alien life residing in our Solar System. Most people would expect such a question to be met with a laugh from a NASA scientist, but Melvin threw a curve ball by claiming that he once thought he saw an alien creature inside the Space Shuttle itself. "I have not seen one in space or on the ground but thought I saw something organic/alien like floating out of the payload bay," Melvin explained. "[Fellow astronaut Randy Bresnik] and I called the ground to ask what it could be and it was ice that had broken off the Freon hoses. Translucent, curved, organic looking." https://twitter.com/Astro_Flow/status/1025804273647534081 That's one heck of a claim, but it does make a lot of sense. Translucent ice that formed around a hose and subsequently broke off into space would certainly look pretty odd to an astronaut peering through the shuttle window. Melvin doesn't mention anything about the object moving or exhibiting anything that would suggest it was alive, but that didn't stop the conspiracy theorist from jumping at the opportunity to suggest he was being lied to by NASA officials. When asked whether it was possible that ground control was lying "to calm [him] down and make [him] focus on the shuttle," Melvin wasn't as dismissive as you might imagine. "Hmmm," Melvin replied. "Don't think so but you never know."

          NASA Astronaut Leland Melvin Says He Saw An ‘Organic, Alien-Like’ Thing In Space      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Former NASA astronaut Leland Melvin recently confessed that he had a bizarre encounter in space during one of his Space Shuttle missions, reports the British media outlet Metro.

The story was also picked up by the Daily Mail, which states that the strange sighting happened while Melvin was orbiting Earth aboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis.

Everything transpired last week on Twitter, in a conversation between Melvin and Scott C. Waring, who runs the site UFO Sightings Daily. When asked by Waring if he had ever seen a UFO, the former astronaut admitted to having witnessed something peculiar in Earth’s orbit.

According to his description, he caught a glimpse of “something organic, alien-like” floating in space right next to the spacecraft’s payload bay.

“I have not seen one [a UFO] in space or on the ground, but thought I saw something organic/alien like floating out of the payload bay,” Melvin shared on Twitter.

          CVS Issues Massive Recall for Popular Allergy and Sinus Medication      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Summer is one of the best times of the entire year. Many people choose to enjoy the nice weather by spending their time outside and in the sunshine.

However, some people have major issues when it comes to the outdoors. Allergies can be debilitating and many people seek medicine to help them with their seasonal allergies.

Now, CVS has just issued a huge recall for a popular product for sinus relief and allergies. This could be a major recall because many people use this product.

https://twitter.com/ABC7News/status/1027634838831017989

"A CVS nasal spray is being recalled nationwide due to microbiological contamination, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration announced. Product Quest Manufacturing is voluntarily recalling Lot# 173089J of CVS Health 12 Hour Sinus Relief Nasal Mist. The FDA says the product was found to have had microbiological contamination identified as Pseudomonas aeruginosa," reported Fox.

The product in question is a nasal decongestant. It is usually sold in a white nasal spray bottle and has orange colored packaging.

Je ne parle pas du remplacement de l'appendice nasal mais certains chercheurs ont le nez creux : une entreprise située à Grenoble a finalisé des détecteurs d’odeurs.
De la bonne conservation des aliments dans le frigo à la propreté des toilettes publiques, les exploitations sont immenses.

La startup Aryballe voulait venir en aide aux personnes souffrant d’anosmie. Ce trouble de l’odorat, qui se manifeste par un défaut de sensibilité aux odeurs, affecte 2% de la population française et jusqu’à 15% des seniors.
Tour de force technique, l’entreprise grenobloise a miniaturisé un enregistreur de laboratoire d’1 m3 en un petit détecteur portable avec   écran. L'appareil pas plus gros qu’un aspirateur de table, pourra renifler les odeurs et signaler si le lait a tourné, si la soupe sent le moisi ou, plus grave, s’il y a une fuite de gaz. Sa commercialisation a débuté  fin 2017.

Votre hotte de cuisine pourrait vous prévenir si votre steak brûle sur la poêle. Dans l’espace public, des détecteurs placés dans les toilettes publiques sentiront quand le seuil d’odeur acceptable est dépassé et préviendront l’équipe de nettoyage pour intervention.

[...]Les "nez électroniques" font leur apparition dans les smartphones. Ces dispositifs  s'inspirent du système olfactif des animaux. Ils sont issus des recherches en nanotechnologies. Ces nouveaux capteurs identifient toutes sortes d’odeurs, les polluants, les explosifs et nous alerteront aussi en cas de maladies graves.

Depuis des années, les chercheurs en informatique travaillent à la mise au point de capteurs portatifs permettant de traiter et d’analyser les données issus de notre environnement immédiat. Des détecteurs qui complètent les 5 sens que nous possédons, c'est-à-dire voir, sentir, toucher, goûter et entendre.

Les systèmes de reconnaissance vocale sont bien aboutis, nous conversons sans problème avec nos ordinateurs ou nos smartphones qui nous comprennent parfaitement. Le toucher fonctionne à merveille sur les écrans tactiles des mobiles ou sur nos tablettes. Nos appareils sont dotés du sens de la vue grâce aux caméras et permettent aux systèmes de vidéosurveillance, avec leurs logiciels de reconnaissance des visages, de nous identifier.

Le goût aussi fait l’objet de recherche dans le domaine des interfaces homme-machine. Reste maintenant à mettre au point des détecteurs d’odeurs, qui devront reconnaître des polluants, repérer les traces aériennes d’explosifs ou de détecter la présence de gaz mortel inodore dans l’atmosphère. Les "nez électroniques ", déjà développés, sont destinés à des usages spécifiques, notamment militaires lors des opérations de déminage. Ils sont aussi utilisés par les agents de la sécurité civile dans les aéroports lors d’une alerte à la bombe.

Depuis peu, des micro-capteurs et diffuseurs d’odeurs sont intégrés à nos smartphones avec des applications comme l'oPhone, qui permettent d’envoyer des SMS agrémentés d'un parfum sélectionné par vos soins. Renifler de bons petits plats est aussi possible grâce au programme Smell-o-Vision pour recevoir sur son téléphone un aperçu olfactif des plats que propose le restaurant d’un grand chef étoilé espagnol. Dans les laboratoires, des puces capables d’analyser la composition chimique d’odeurs subtiles, aussi performantes que la truffe d’un chien, sont à l’étude. Elles présentent une sensibilité exceptionnelle, et décèlent en temps réel les changements du métabolisme de son porteur, mesurent par exemple son taux de glycémie ou d’alcoolémie. Des senseurs renifleurs universels qui permettront d’apprécier la qualité de l’air d’une ville, d’analyser la fraîcheur des aliments et de sentir votre haleine afin d’établir un diagnostic médical complet. Des nez électroniques 100% fiables bientôt dans nos smartphones qui, contrairement aux humains, n’ont aucune chance d’attraper, même au printemps, le rhume des foins."[...]  in rfi.fr © 2018 Copyright RFI

동물조직학 보고서[2]동물조직학_레포트동물조직학 - 사람의 식도, 위, 소장 및 대장을 조직학적 측면에서 정리동물조직학 레포트[6][제주대학교]동물조직학(상)[제주대학교]동물조직학(중) 좀 더 업그레이드하여 자료를 보완하여 과제물을 꼼꼼하게 정성을 들어 작성했습니다. 위 자료 요약정리 잘되어 있으니 잘 참고하시어 학업에 나날이 발전이 있기를 기원합니다 ^^ 구입자 분의 앞날에 항상 무궁한 발전과 행복과 행운이 깃들기를 홧팅 소화기계는 소화관(alimentary canal)과 부속기관(accessory organ)으로 구성된다. 위장관(GI tract)이라고도 하는 소화관은 음식을 더 작은 입자로 분해하여 소화시키며 소화된 것을 흡수한다. 소화관은 입 인두 식도 위 소장 대장으로 구성되며 대장은 항문에 연결된다. 부속기관은 치아 혀 담낭 다수의 소화선(타액선 간 췌장)이 있다. 소화관 조직을 살펴보면 식도부터 항문까지 모든 소화기관의 벽들은 4개의 층으로 이루어져 있고 점막층(mucosa) 점막하층(submucosa) 근충(muscularis) 장막층(serosa)으로 구성된다. 점막은 구강에서 항문까지 소화관강을 이루는 습한 상피막이다. 주요 기능은 소화효소와 호르몬의 분비 혈액 내로 최종 산물 흡수 감염 예방 등이다. 접막의 상피세포는 단순원주세포로서 점액을 분비하는 술잔세포(goblet cell)가 풍부하다. 점막이 생산하는 미끄러운 점액은 소화효소에 의해 소화기관 자체가 소화되는 것을 방지하며 음식이 쉽게 통과하도록 한다. 점막하층은 점막층의 바로 밑에 있으며 조밀한 결합조직 혈관 림프관 림프절 신경섬유 풍부한 탄력섬유로 구성되어 있다. 풍부한 혈관들이 소화관벽을 이루는 조직에 혈액을 공급한다. 근육층은 두 층의 평활근으로 되어 있는데 내층은 환상근(circula-r muscle)이며 외층은 종주근(longitudinal muscle)으로서 화상근이 수축하면 장의 내경이 좁아지고 종주근이 수축하면 장의 길이가 짧아진다. 소화관에 환상근층이 두껍게 발달하여 괄약근을 형서한 곳으로는 분문관약근 유문괄약근 회맹괄약근 내 외항문괄약근 등이 있다. 이들 괄약근은 역류를 방지하는 판막으로 작용한다. 장막층은 장관의 가장 밖에 있는 막으로 소화관을 보호 지지하는 역할을 한다. 2.입과 구강(oral cavity)의 구조 입술의 안쪽은 점막으로 바깥쪽은 피부로 덮여 있으며 뺨은 입술의 양쪽으로 연결되어 있다. 입천장은 오목하며 경구개(硬口蓋)와 연구개(軟口蓋)로 형성되어 있다. 연구개의 늘어진 끈은 목젖(uvula)이라고 하는데 음식을 삼킬 때 공기의 통로를 차단하고 음식물이 식도로 넘어갈 수 있도록 해준다. 그 외에 잇몸과 이가 있는데 이는 음식물을 씹는 기능을 한다. 혀는 근육기관으로 입의 바닥 부분에 위치하며 운동성이 큰 구조이다. 또한 맛을 느끼는 미각기로서 또 말하는 기능을 맡고 있는 기관으로서의 역할도 한다. 3.침샘(salivary gland) 침샘은 주로 장액성(漿液性)과 점액성(粘液性) 또는 이들이 섞인 형태의 용액을 분비한다. 점액성 분비물은 짙고 투명하며 다소 끈적거리는 특성이 있다. 장액성 분비물은 수분 단백질 및 소화효소로 구성된 유백광(乳白光)의 빛을 띠는 액체이다. 세포유형에 따라 침샘은 각기 장액성이나 점액성의 분비물을 분비하지만 이 두 분비물을 섞어 분비하기도 한다. 침샘의 활성은 자율신경계에 의해 조절되며 때로 열(熱) 탈수(脫水) 또는 불안한 심리상태에 인해 분비가 억제되기도 한다. 침의 분비는 음식물의 존재 상상(想像) 및 냄새에 의해 증가하며 열 자극에 의해 증가하기도 한다. 혀 구개 입술 뺨에 존재하는 다수의 작은 샘(腺)들 이외에도 사람의 경우 잘 발달된 관(管)을 통해 입으로 연결된 3쌍의 주요침샘을 가지고 있다. 귀밑샘(parotid salivary glands)은 3쌍의 침샘 중에서 가장 크며 귀와 아래턱 사이에 있다. 각 귀밑샘은 조직 캡슐로 덮여 있으며 지방조직과 장액성 용액을 분비하는 세포로 구성되어 있다. 귀밑샘의 주요관인 스텐센 관(Stensens duct)은 위턱의 둘째큰어금니 근처 구강의 후위(後位)로 열려 있다. 턱밑샘(submaxillary glands)은 아래턱 뼈의 측면을 따라 위치해 있다. 각 턱밑샘의 주요관인 와튼 관(Whartons duct)은 혀의 앞쪽 끝이 입바닥과 만나는 곳으로 열려 있다. 조직 캡슐이 각 턱밑샘을 둘러싸고 있으며 턱밑샘은 대부분 장액성 혼합액을 분비한다. 혀밑샘(sublingual glands)은 입바닥의 점막 아래에 위치한다. 혀밑샘은 캡슐로 덮여 있지 않기 때문에 주변 조직에 좀더 분산되어 있다. 혀밑샘은 혀와 입의 바닥이 만나는 곳으로 열려 있는 수많은 리비누스소 관(Rivinuss ducts)을 가지고 있으며 몇 개의 관이 합해져 바르톨린 관(Bartholins duct)을 이룬다. 바르톨린관은 턱밑샘이나 턱밑샘 부근으로 흐른다. 혀밑샘은 주로 점액성 혼합액을 분비한다. 4.인두(pharynx) 인두실(pharynx chamber)은 호흡기와 소화기의 양쪽 기능을 갖는다. 근육의 굵은 섬유와 결합조직에 의해 인두는 두개골의 아랫부분과 그를 둘러싸는 구조에 붙어 있다. 인두벽에는 환상근(環狀筋)과 종주근(縱走筋)이 있는데 환상근은 음식물이 식도로 들어가는 데 도움이 되도록 인두를 꽉 죄어주고 공기를 삼키지 않게 하며 종주근은 음식을 삼킬 때 인두벽을 끌어올린다. 인두는 크게 세 부분으로 나뉜다. 첫부분은 코인두 鼻咽頭 nasal pharynx 로 비강의 뒷부분이고 협부(峽部)를 통해 입인두 口咽頭 oral pharynx 라는 2번째 부위로 연결된다. 입인두는 구강의 뒷부분에서 시작되어 목의 아래쪽에 있는 후두덮개 喉頭蓋 epiglottis 까지이고 후두덮개란 폐로 가는 공기통로를 막고 음식물을 식도로 들어가도록 하는 덮개 모양의 조직이다. 입인두의 벽에 있는 3각형 모양으로 오목한 부분은 감염되기 쉬운 두 덩어리의 림프 조직인 구개편도(→ 편도)를 감싸고 있다. 입인두와 코인두를 연결하는 협부는 인간에게 매우 중요한데 코 입 어느 쪽을 통해서나 호흡할 수 있게 하고 의학적으로 필요하다면 음식물이 비후관을 통해 식도로 전달되도록 한다. 3번째 부분은 후두인두(喉頭咽頭 laryngeal pharynx)로서 후두덮개에서 시작하여 식도까지 연결되는데 공기가 폐로 또는 음식물이 식도로 넘어가는 통로를 조절하는 역할을 한다. 2개의 작은 관(유스타키오관)이 중이와 인두를 연결하여 고막 안쪽의 기압을 대기압과 맞게 조절한다. 5.식도(esophagus) [제주대학교]동물 조직학(하)동물조직학 ^^동물조직학 레포트[7]영구 조직표본 제작법 (동물조직학)[레포트] 제주대 동물조직학 레포트[레포트] 제주대이러닝 동물조직학레포트동물조직학 - 사람의 입에서 항문에 이르기까지를 조직학적으로 정리동물조직학 - 입에서 항문까지 소화기계의 조직학적인 정리[동물조직학] 입에서 항문에 이르기까지의 소화기계통을 조직학적으로 정리동물조직학 - 소화계 계통의 조직과 기능동물조직학 - 소화기관의 구조에 관해서 설명동물조직학 - 소화기관의 구조에 관해서동물조직학 레포트동물조직학 텔로미어에 대한 내용 조회수:22회
          Keuntungan Asuransi Untuk Keluarga      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Bulan kemarin adalah hari yang melelahkan bagi saya. Selama sebulan itu saya wira-wiri pulang kampung halaman untuk melihat keadaan keluarga saya yang sakit secara bergantian dan harus dirawat di rumah sakit karena sudah cukup parah, cukup parah menurut saya. Pengobatan dirumah sepertinya sudah tidak bisa diatasi lagi dan pilihan terakhir adalah harus berobat ke dokter dan harus rawat inap di rumah sakit untuk mendapat perawatan yang lebih insentif.

Pertama yang sakit dari anggota keluarga saya adalah kakek saya, orang tua dari ibu saya. Tiba-tiba saya ditelpon kakak saya untuk segera pulang kampung karena keadaan kakek sudah kritis dan sekarang di rawat dirumah sakit. Tanpa babibu saya langsung meluncur pulang kampung untuk melihat keadaan kakek. Alhamdulillah... yang katanya kritis kini lumayan cukup baikan keadaannya. Masa kritis sudah lewat dan tinggal pemulihan saja. Selama seminggu kakek saya di rawat di rumah sakit dan setiap hari saya menjaga beliau secara bergantian dengan keluarga saya yang lain.

Selama kurang lebih dua minggu dirawat dan mendapat pengobatan kakek saya berangsur-angsur pulih kembali. Walaupun tidak setegar hari-hari kemarin tapi saya sudah cukup bersyukur karena kakek bisa berjalan tanpa dibopong.

Lanjut setelah kakek sehat, kemudian saya mendapat kabar ibu mertua saya sakit dan di saat itu juga saya harus pulang kampung lagi untuk melihat kondisi ibu mertua saya. Setelah sampai rumah, saya langsung membawa beliau ke dokter untuk berobat dan mendapatkan penanganan tercepat untuk mendeteksi penyakitnya. Ibu saya memang sering sakit-sakitan, tapi beliau enggan sekali jika dibawa ke dokter ataupun ke rumah sakit karena takut mahal biaya pengobatannya. Oalah... jadi selama ini ibu mertua saya nggak tahu kalau beliau sudah tercover asuransi kesehatan dan selama berobat ataupun rawat inap semuanya nggak perlu bayar lagi. Salah saya juga sih... nggak pernah cerita tentang hal ini. Hehehe...


Keuntungan asuransi bagi saya dan keluarga saya ya seperti ini. Dalam keadaan genting saya nggak perlu repot cari uang pinjaman untuk membayar biaya rumah sakit ataupun saat periksa ke dokter. Bisa dipakai hari ini, besok, ataupun nanti. Jadi... aman-aman saja untuk masalah keuangan saya. Tapi... saya tidak berharap keluarga saya sakit namun saya selalu bersiap-siap untuk selalu menjaga mereka kedepannya dengan memberikan cinta kasih walaupun tak berbentuk.

Biasanya saya memilih asuransi yang bisa diambil kapanpun dan prosesnya nggak ribet. Kalau bisa diambil kapanpun kan enak buat para nasabah, terutama saya yang memang butuh saat itu juga. Contohnya dalam kasus di atas. Benar-benar sangat membantu sekali dan bikin saya nggak pusing buat cari pinjaman uang.

Dulu... saya pernah kewalahan buat cari pinjaman sana -sini untuk membayar biaya pengobatan dan rumah sakit karena ternyata biaya rumah sakit bikin saya shock. Harganya nggak main-main. Dari kejadian itu barulah saya tahu keuntungan asuransi yang bisa dirasakan jika keluarga sudah mengalami kejadian yang memang tidak diinginkan.

Keuntungan asuransi


Mempersiapkan dari awal untuk keluarga tidak ada salahnya, demi cinta dan bentuk perhatian kita kepada mereka. Karena mereka kita bisa seperti sekarang ini, maka sepatutnya kita juga memberikan yang terbaik kepada mereka.

Sebenarnya saya capek sekali wira-wiri tapi karena mereka sangat berharga dalam hidup saya rasa capek seketika hilang dan saya ingin cepat-cepat bertemu mereka. Saya ingin memberikan cinta pada mereka, seperti mereka memberikan cinta pada saya dan keluarga saya.


Salam,

La ilegalización de la homofobia

***********
Alcances y limitaciones del Artículo 40, en las propuestas para reformar la Constitución en Cuba
***********

Por Waldo Acebo Meireles

La homofobia en Cuba en realidad no necesitaba legalizarse, estaba inscrita en el ADN de la mayor parte de los cubanos, era una de las facetas del machismo, lo cual no impedía o más bien obligaba a que los bujarrones, o bugarrones como se le dicen en Cuba, no fuesen considerados como homosexuales, eran hombres, machos, e incluso podían ser hasta abakua. Con la llegada de los muy machos barbudos, aunque entre ellos existían tanto bujarrones como algún que otro homo, mondo y lirondo, se acentuó, si es que ello era posible, el efecto homofóbico en la cultura popular y folclórica.

Además, como si fuese necesario, el dictador en jefe en más de un discurso arremetió contra esa lacra y finalmente se crearon las UMAP para reeducar a los homosexuales masculinos —con las lesbianas utilizaron un instrumental más sutil probablemente porque en las jerarquías heredades del PSP existían más de una— y sacarlos del pecado, era como si el estado que se decía revolucionario siguiese las normas de la Iglesia Católica o, peor aún, los ideales fascistas.

Después del fracaso de las UMAP en solucionar la tarea encomendada y con la repulsa de sectores de la izquierda europea y latinoamericana se decidió emprender otro camino menos conflictivo desde el punto de vista propagandístico y se comenzó el proceso de depuración en las universidades con la esperanza de que en un largo proceso de saneamiento eliminar de la intelectualidad, sino revolucionaria, nacional, esta plaga peligrosa para la santidad y pureza del ideal socialista.

El paso más efectivo fue el que se derivó de la Declaración Final del Congreso Nacional de Educación y Cultura en abril de 1971, que comenzó siendo sólo de Educación, pero debido al izquierdismo e intransigencia con que se abordaron los temas de la radio, la televisión y el cine y su papel educacional se incluyeron los factores y dirección de los órganos relacionados con esos temas. En esa declaración se decía:

“Los medios culturales no pueden servir de marco a la proliferación de falsos intelectuales que pretenden convertir el esnobismo, la extravagancia y el homosexualismo y demás aberraciones sociales, en expresión del arte revolucionario, alejados de las masas y del espíritu de nuestra Revolución.”

Con lo cual el homosexualismo quedaba definido como una aberración social más, entre otras.

Esta concepción sufrió una oculta y casi prohibida discrepancia al publicarse en 1979 en Cuba una reducida tirada el libro El hombre y la mujer en la intimidad del sexólogo alemán [de la Alemania del Este] Siegfried Schnabl, el cual aceptaba el homosexualismo como una conducta sexual humana y no lo consideraba algo enfermizo o inmoral. Este libro tuvo una difusión en extremo limitada pero no por ello dejó de ser conocido y discutido, aunque un tanto de forma clandestina, así muchos machos descubrieron la existencia del clítoris junto, y de paso, la normalidad de la conducta homosexual que los aterraba, fue un alivio para los machos, y también las hembras, bisexuales.

Pero la maquinaria estatal y partidista siguió su camino homofóbico y el ministro de Educación emitió a inicio de los años 70 la Resolución No. 10 que creaba el instrumento legal para sacar de las aulas a profesores y maestros que mostrasen algún rasgo de afeminamiento, [como siempre el tema de las lesbianas eran más complicado] era una derivación necesaria de los acuerdos no publicados del Congreso de Educación y Cultura. Las frecuente, generalmente infructuosas, apelaciones ante los llamados Consejos de Trabajo llevaron a que se formulase el Decreto-Ley No. 34 en marzo de 1980, en el mismo se establecía en su artículo 2 inciso i) que era una conducta incompatible con la función docente el:

“cometer cualquier otro acto que pueda ser constitutivo de delito intencional denigrante o tener una actitud inmoral contrarrevolucionaria, o de otro tipo, que por su entidad y trascendencia social, pueda perjudicar a la formación de la niñez o de la juventud.”

Y con ello quedaba implícito la homosexualidad como motivo para ser expulsado de las filas de los educadores[1], las víctimas fueron numerosas y los amenazados quedaron petrificados en espera que les llegara la guillotina.

Ahora resulta que el artículo 40 de la novísima Constitución establece la igualdad

“sin ninguna discriminación por razones de sexo, género, orientación sexual, identidad de género, origen étnico, color de la piel, creencia religiosa, discapacidad, origen nacional o cualquier otra distinción lesiva a la dignidad humana.”

En donde falta señalar: u opinión política, ya que este es una importante condición para ser discriminado cuando por ejemplo se dice de manera estentórea: ‘las universidades son para los revolucionarios’.

Por otra parte, la tan cacareada aceptación del matrimonio homosexual quedó en nada ya que el artículo 68 señala:

“El matrimonio es la unión voluntariamente concertada entre dos personas con aptitud legal para ello, a fin de hacer vida en común.”[2]

Quedando en el aire lo de las ‘dos personas con aptitud legal’ ya que este concepto desde el punto de vista legal significa: Idoneidad, disposición, suficiencia, falta responder si los homosexuales y transgéneros cumplen esos requisitos o tendrán que esperar por alguna ley complementaria para que se defina su situación real con relación al himeneo.

Por tanto, me queda la duda: ¿Pasados los fuegos artificiales se vaciarán los closets?

[1] Yo fui una víctima temprana de este Decreto-Ley ya que en agosto de 1980 se me aplicó el inciso e) ‘difamar o menospreciar públicamente a las instituciones de la República, a las organizaciones político-sociales y de masas del país, y a los héroes y mártires de la Patria.’ Los motivos: algunas herejías que la Seguridad del Estado consideró ‘diversionismo ideológico’ término que no por inexistente deja de ser bastante molesto para el que lo recibe como título honorario.

[2] Esto de hacer vida en común es muy problemático ya que cientos, sino miles, de parejas viven separados por razones derivadas de la falta de viviendas y el hacinamiento resultante, muchos se ven una vez a la semana en los lugares que sus bolsillos le permitan concretar y disfrutar la unión.

Nota del Bloguista de Baracutey Cubano

Fidel Castro impulsaba, participaba, estaba al tanto y aprobaba  la represión de todo tipo  contra los homosexuales y el homoexualismo; es totalmente falso que por sus ocupaciones no estuviera al tanto de  lo que estaba sucediendo respecto a esas personas y a esa conducta, aunque es bueno aclarar que cuando una persona era incondicional a sus mandatos se hacía de la vista gorda como era  con el caso de Alfredo Guevara,  director del ICAIC,  su amigo desde los tiempos de su juventud universitaria.

Veamos algunas  pruebas de lo antes planteado:

Fidel Castro tenía conocimiento  de esa Declaración Final del Congreso Nacional de Educación y Cultura en abril de 1971; en su discurso de clausura de dicho congreso  expresa:

Como saben los compañeros del Congreso, hoy llevamos ya dieciséis horas y cuarto trabajando todos sin parar un solo minuto.  Por eso nosotros no queremos abusar, ni mucho menos que algunos se vayan a dormir a esta hora, y por eso trataremos de ser breves.

No vamos a hablar de los puntos, las conclusiones, las recomendaciones, porque de eso largamente se ha hablado y se acaba de exponer en la declaración del Congreso

El personaje y militante  revolucionario de Pucho, en sus variantes de Estudio, Trabajo y Fusil que conforman el lema de la UJC, aplastan a los homosexuales. Nota y dibujo añadidas por el bloguista de Baracutey Cubano)
Mariela debe leerse el discurso de Fidel Castro del 13 de marzo de 1963 antes de hablar. El discurso completo de Fidel Castro puede leerse en:
http://www.cuba.cu/gobierno/discursos/1963/esp/f130363e.html
Unos fragmentos:
“ ¡Un momento! Es que ustedes no me han dejado completar la idea (RISAS y APLAUSOS). Muchos de esos pepillos vagos, hijos de burgueses, andan por ahí con unos pantaloncitos demasiado estrechos (RISAS); algunos de ellos con una guitarrita en actitudes “elvispreslianas”, y que han llevado su libertinaje a extremos de querer ir a algunos sitios de concurrencia pública a organizar sus shows feminoides por la libre.

Que no confundan la serenidad de la Revolución y la ecuanimidad de la Revolución con debilidades de la Revolución. Porque nuestra sociedad no puede darles cabida a esas degeneraciones (APLAUSOS). La sociedad socialista no puede permitir ese tipo de degeneraciones.

¿Jovencitos aspirantes a eso? ¡No! “Arbol que creció torcido...”, ya el remedio no es tan fácil. No voy a decir que vayamos a aplicar medidas drásticas contra esos árboles torcidos, pero jovencitos aspirantes, ¡no!

Hay unas cuantas teorías, yo no soy científico, no soy un técnico en esa materia (RISAS), pero sí observé siempre una cosa: que el campo no daba ese subproducto. Siempre observé eso, y siempre lo tengo muy presente.

Estoy seguro de que independientemente de cualquier teoría y de las investigaciones de la medicina, entiendo que hay mucho de ambiente, mucho de ambiente y de reblandecimiento en ese problema. Pero todos son parientes: el lumpencito, el vago, el elvispresliano, el “pitusa” (RISAS).

¿Y qué opinan ustedes, compañeros y compañeras? ¿Qué opina nuestra juventud fuerte, entusiasta, enérgica, optimista, que lucha por un porvenir, dispuesta a trabajar por ese porvenir y a morir por ese porvenir? ¿Qué opina de todas esas lacras? (EXCLAMACIONES.)

Entonces, consideramos que nuestra agricultura necesita brazos (EXCLAMACIONES DE: “¡Sí!”); y que esa gusanera lumpeniana, y la otra gusanera, no confundan La Habana con Miami...¨
 ************
Fragmentos de  cartas que escribió Fidel Castro Ruz  desde su prisión en el Presidio Modelo de Isla de Pinos por los hechos ocurridos en el asalto al Cuartel Moncada el 26 de julio de 1953. Esas cartas fueron publicadas en 1959 en un libro por  su entonces muy amigo Luis Conte  Agüero; ese libro, en su nueva edición, puede comprarse en: https://www.amazon.com/Prison-Letters
Junio 19 de 1954.
A Luis Conte Agüero:
Aquí me paso la vida leyendo y practicando el autocontrol. Me siento realmente mejor cuando no leo los periódicos; la politiquería y la obsecuencia que veo por todas partes me producen ataques de ira.
Si alguien ha visto su paciencia puesta a prueba, ese soy yo. Hay ocasiones en que paso horas luchando contra el deseo de explotar, de declararme en huelga de hambre y sin probar bocado hasta que me saquen de aquí o me maten, lo cual no sería para nada imposible. Estoy convencido de que quieren provocarme a toda costa y yo ignoro sus intenciones... Luis, yo pienso que tenemos que organizar, tan pronto como sea posible, una campaña sistemática y creciente contra esta ultrajante situación en la que me encuentro... Este es el momento más favorable psicológicamente debido a una serie de eventos... El Ministro de Gobierno se ha comportado como lo que es: un perfecto afeminado; se ha plegado a todos los caprichos de los militares y se ha dedicado a enriquecerse desvergonzadamente... Recuerda a Catón, quien terminaba siempre sus discursos pidiendo la destrucción de Cartago (...)
****
Cuando salió a la luz pública que Mirta, su esposa, había aceptado en secreto que su hermano Rafael Díaz Balart –viceministro de Gobierno– le pagara un modesto estipendio a través de su oficina, Fidel Castro insistió en que Ramón Hermida –el Ministro de Gobierno– quería manchar su nombre.
A Luis Conte Agüero:
Esta es una maquinación en mi contra: la más infame, más indecente, más vil e intolerable. Mirta es demasiado ecuánime como para haber permitido que la sedujera su familia, aceptando aparecer en la nómina del gobierno, independientemente de su situación económica. Estoy seguro de que ha sido miserablemente calumniada (...)

Sólo un afeminado como Hermida, en el nivel más bajo de la degeneración sexual recurriría a semejantes métodos, cargados con tan inconcebible indecencia y falta de virilidad. Ahora ya no me cabe duda de que la declaración atribuida a mí acerca de que soy bien tratado ha sido obra suya.

No quiero convertirme en un asesino cuando salga de esta prisión. ¿No tiene honor un prisionero político? ¿Puede un prisionero político ser ofendido de este modo? ¿No tiene un prisionero retar a duelo cuando sale de prisión? ¿Tiene uno que comerse la bilis de la infamia en la impotencia y desesperación del confinamiento?

Estoy dispuesto a retar en duelo a mi cuñado en cualquier momento. Lo que está en juego es el buen nombre de mi mujer y mi propio honor de revolucionario.

The Context of White Supremacy hosts the weekly Compensatory Call-In. We encourage non-white listeners to dial in with their codified concepts, new terms, observations, research findings, workplace problems or triumphs, and/or suggestions on how best to Replace White Supremacy With Justice ASAP. We'll use these sessions to hone our use of words as tools to reveal truth, neutralize White people. We'll examine news reports from the past seven days and - hopefully - promote a constructive dialog. #ANTIBLACKNESS Mercifully, 2016 cocludes. Gus T. Renegade anticipated this would be an atrocious 12 months on the plantation. The passing of Dr. Afeni Shakur, Gwen Ifill, Natalie Cole, Muhammad Ali, Prince, George Curry, Phife Dawg, Dr. Delbert Blair, Maurice White, Dr. Frances Cress Welsing and numerous others made for a year of crushing loss. However, White Supremacists don't pause for sorrow or Christmas. In fact, a White EMT worker, Steve Sampson, used the holiday season to concoct a lie about black hoodlums looting his presents. He was eventually arrested for making a false report. And when Whites weren't lying, they put in overtime to get black people in the theaters. Denzel Washington, Taraji P. Henson, Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer confiscated the silver screen with August Wilson's Fences and Hidden Figures - based on black female geniuses who worked for NASA and helped Whites invade space. Both features explicitly address Racism. But, the constructive value of both movies is questionable. Fences delivers a hefty heap of black disfunction, while Hidden Figures glorifies helping Whitefolks - with some of the very cast from the 2011 hit,The Help. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

Thank you for your beautiful words. They paint such lovely pictures. Here where I live it is grey and cooler then the usual 100 degree heat we get in the Summer. Rain is predicted and much welcome. I love Autumn best of all the seasons. Cool and crisp but not too windy. And the sunsets are to die for. Turquoise blue skys set on fire at the western horizon with the setting Sun. It's chile harvest time and you can smell the roasting chiles everywhere you go, long green Hatch chiles. There are apples and cantaloups and different squashes too. I turned seventy years old in July and though I don't feel that different from last year a new decade does make you reflect and contemplate life. There are circumstances that are beyond me that I should ignore. And there are others that I should give more attention to. I have to learn to take more time for me. Forty seven years I have been married to the same man. I spoiled him way too much and now he might feel I am neglecting him but I must now take time to nurture myself. Again, thank you for your lovely words and your beautiful music.--- Isabel*

Perhaps someday it's it is deem to be, I would love to hear you sing and hear your stories. Perhaps if things come together as they should then this will occur.

I agree with you about The White Goddess. I wrote a work of fiction based on Graves' work where I explain the dying/resurrecting god -- To Sleep with Stones -- and set it among the Standing Stones at Kilmartin Glen. I love Graves' Wheel of the Year and his tribute to the poet/bard. It's truly an inspired book and therefore is an inspiration to others. Happy Lughnasadh:)

Lorne Cress Love returns to The Context of White Supremacy. A lifelong activist and former member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, Ms. Cress Love is also the sister of the late psychiatrist and author of The Isis Papers, Dr. Frances Cress Welsing. In addition to sharing her recollections and love for her sister, we'll also discuss her brother-in-law Robert Lawrence, who was recently recognized by NASA for his contributions to the United States's space program. Mr. Lawrence died while training a White pilot in 1967. Ms. Cress Love suspects her brother-in-law's death may not have been accidental. In addition to the racist opposition to black people being accepted in the space program, Mr. Lawrence's family was barraged with racist messages gloating over the black pilot's death. #BlackSelfRespect INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943#

Zgadzam się z przedmówcami, że drogi rowerowe w naszym mieście niestety nie ułatwiają poruszania się, są niebezpieczne i niewygodne choćby przez raptowne ich zakończenia, łączenie i przetykanie z chodnikami (np przy skrzyżowaniu ul. Piłsudskiego z ul. Siwińskiego). Kto wpadł na pomysł by poprowadzić taką wąską ścieżkę tak blisko targowiska (trzecia część, najbliżej Netto)? Warto pamiętać o jeżdżących na rolkach. Z powodu zbyt wąskich lub/i zniszczonej nawierzchni chodników na drogi rowerowe wkraczają piesi, mamy z wózkami... Można odnieść wrażenie, że osoba projektująca dawno nie wsiadała na siodełko a i chyba niezbyt często przebywa wśród zwykłych obywateli. Tak prawdę mówiąc to nie bardzo rozumiem ideę "budowania" drogi rowerowej - a nie można po prostu jej, w wielu miejscach, namalować na fragmencie ulicy zamiast ją rozkopywać i wydawać nasze pieniądze na kostkę? Czy będą kiedyś w Legionowie drogi rowerowe umożliwiające płynne poruszanie się po całym mieście?

          Ini Cara Terbaik Saksikan Hujan Meteor Perseid      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Hujan meteor Perseid disebut akan menghiasi langit Bumi pada akhir pekan ini, tepatnya 11-12 Agustus 2018. Peristiwa alam langka ini bisa disaksikan tepat pukul dua dini hari waktu setempat.

Disampaikan Badan Antariksa Amerika Serikat, NASA, cara terbaik untuk menyaksikan hujan meteor Perseid adalah dengan menghindari tempat berpolusi cahaya.

Maksudnya, tempat seperti daerah perkotaan yang dipenuhi lampu dan gedung-gedung tinggi. 

“Untuk bisa menyaksikan hujan meteor Perseid, Anda harus menghindari tempat yang banyak cahaya, terutama bagi yang ingin memotret pemandangan hujan meteor,” kata NASA sebagaimana dikutip Space, Jumat (10/8/2018).

Karena itu, tempat-tempat yang minim polusi cahaya seperti pegunungan, desa, sawah, padang rumput, dinilai menjadi tempat yang pas untuk menyaksikan hujan meteor Perseid menghiasi langit malam. 

Pada kesempatan yang sama, Kepala Lembaga Penerbangan dan Antariksa Nasional (LAPAN) Thomas Djamaluddin, mengakui kalau meteor Perseid adalah jenis meteor yang kuat. 

“Perseid itu adalah hujan meteor yang kuat. Jumlah meteornya per jam itu sangat banyak,” tutur Thomas kepada Tekno Liputan6.com via pesan singkat. 

Bagi masyarakat Indonesia pun bisa menyaksikan hujan meteor Perseid dengan mata telanjang dan tanpa alat bantu. Syaratnya, langit harus cerah dan tidak berpolusi cahaya.

“Bisa (disaksikan), asal langitnya harus cerah dan bukan di perkotaan,” tukasnya.

Apa Itu Hujan Meteor Perseid?

Peristiwa alam langka tersebut tentu rasanya tidak bisa dilewatkan begitu saja, apalagi bagi kamu yang sangat menyukai fenomena alam luar angkasa.

Menurut informasi tambahan dari Space, hujan meteor Perseid bakal bisa disaksikan pada 11-12 Agustus 2018 (tergantung pada zona waktu negara masing-masing). 

Nantinya, diprediksi akan ada sekitar 60-70 meteor per jam yang akan melesat di langit malam. 

Badan Antariksa Amerika Serikat, NASA, mengungkap waktu terbaik untuk menyaksikan hujan meteor Perseid adalah pukul dua dini hari waktu setempat.

Sekadar diketahui, fenomena hujan meteor Perseid selalu terjadi setiap musim panas berlangsung setiap tahunnya.

Meteor ini berasal dari pecahan komet Swift-Tuttle yang sebetulnya hanya melewati Bumi setiap 133 tahun dalam perjalannya mengitari Matahari.

Komet tersebut mengitari orbit dan terus terbakar, sehingga pecahannya membentuk hujan meteor dalam kecepatan 37 mil per detik (59 kilometer per detik).

          Top 3 News: Arah Angin Berubah, Ma'ruf Amin Cawapres Jokowi      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Top 3 news, tanda tanya besar seputar siapa sosok yang akan menjadi pendamping Presiden petahana Joko Widodo atau Jokowi akhirnya terkuak. Sosok berinisial M yang misterius itu ternyata adalah Ketua MUI KH Ma'ruf Amin sebagai cawapres Jokowi di Pilpres 2019.

Sebelumnya nama mantan Ketua Mahkamah Konstitusi (MK) Mahfud MD yang mencuat sebagai calon kuat pendamping Jokowi.

Ternyata arah angin berubah di detik-detik terakhir. 

Kabar lainnya yang tak kalah disorot di Liputan6.com adalah gempa susulan berskala kecil diperkirakan akan terus menggoyang Lombok, Nusa Tenggara Barat (NTB) untuk sebulan ke depan.

Kepala Badan Meteorologi, Klimatologi, dan Geofisika (BMKG) Dwikorita Karnawati mengungkapkan, kekuatan gempa susulan maksimal berada di kisaran 5,0 SR dan tidak berpotensi menimbulkan kerusakan.

Dia meminta warga bersiap menghadapi risiko itu, karena Pulau Lombok berdekatan dengan Sesar Flores yang membentang dari Bali hingga utara Laut Flores.

Berikut berita terpopuler di kanal News Liputan6.com, sepanjang Kamis, 9 Agustus 2018:

Di sisi lain, para pendukung Prabowo Subianto hingga Rabu malam, 8 Agustus kemarin terus menggodok nama cawapres. 

Selama ini ada tiga nama kuat yang mencuat di bursa cawapres Prabowo. Mereka adalah Ketua Kogasma Demokrat Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono, Ketua Majelis Syuro PKS Salim Segaf Al Jufri, dan pendakwah Ustaz Abdul Somad.

Siapa yang akan dipilih Prabowo sebagai cawapres?

Tenggat pendaftaran bakal capres dan cawapres berakhir pada Jumat 10 Agustus 2018 pukul 24.00. Sejak pendaftaran dibuka pada Sabtu 4 Agustus lalu, koalisi pengusung Joko Widodo atau Jokowi maupun Prabowo Subianto bermanuver politik, sehingga bursa cawapres kian ramai.

Kedua kubu mengerucutkan nama untuk menentukan cawapres pendamping capres masing-masing. Ada 10 nama yang masuk bursa cawapres untuk Jokowi dan Prabowo.

Untuk memilih cawapres, koalisi pendukung Jokowi maupun Prabowo menggencarkan pertemuan hingga Rabu malam, 8 Agustus 2018. Siapa saja yang masuk dalam bursa cawapres?

Kepala Badan Meteorologi, Klimatologi, dan Geofisika (BMKG) Dwikorita Karnawati mengatakan, gempa susulan skala kecil akan terus terjadi di Lombok hingga empat minggu ke depan.

"Tiga hingga empat minggu ke depan gempa kecil masih akan terjadi. Kita harus menerimanya, ini proses alam," kata Dwikorita di Mataram, Kamis (9/8/2018).

Gempa susulan, menurut dia, kekuatannya maksimal pada kisaran 5,0 SR dan tidak berpotensi menimbulkan kerusakan. Namun dia mengingatkan warga yang rumahnya rusak akibat gempa besar pada Minggu 5 Agustus lalu tetap waspada.

"Justru akan sangat berbahaya jika setelah gempa besar terjadi namun tidak ada gempa susulan kecil setelahnya, berarti masih ada potensi energi besar," jelas Dwikorita.

          NASA’s Mission To The Sun Cleared For Saturday Launch      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Parker Solar Probe

The Parker Solar Probe, NASA’s epic mission to “touch” the sun, has been cleared to take off on August 11, reports CBS News.

The launch window opens bright and early on Saturday morning, at 3:33 a.m. EDT, and lasts for 65 minutes. However, the launch period will remain open until August 23, as recently reported by the Inquisitr.

This historic mission sets out to unravel some of the biggest puzzles regarding our sun, its scorching outer atmosphere known as the solar corona, and the solar wind — the mysterious outflow of charged particles it oozes into the solar system.

“Stay tuned — Parker is about to take flight,” NASA announced today in a news release, which summarized the solar probe’s mission and the eight year-long effort it took to finally see it soar to the heavens.

          NASA recria estado raro da matéria no espaço      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Ao resfriar uma nuvem de átomos de rubídio a uma temperatura apenas 10 milionésimos de grau acima do zero absoluto, a NASA conseguiu produzir a bordo da Estação Espacial Internacional o quinto e mais exótico estado da matéria. Trata-se do chamado Condensado de Bose-Einstein, um conglomerado de átomos virtualmente idênticos que permite aos cientistas observarem fenômenos quânticos em grande escala.

A experiência foi realizada por meio de um equipamento batizado pela agência de Cold Atom Lab (CAL), espécie de máquina quântica compacta projetada para funcionar no interior da ISS. Diferentemente de experimentos análogos conduzidos em superfície, ao trabalhar na gravidade reduzida da estação, o CAL não precisou lançar mão de recursos como lasers e imãs – necessários para manter a nuvem de átomos em suspensão na Terra, por conta da gravidade, a fim de permitir a observação.

O método pôde ainda garantir um período estendido para a análise, algo entre cinco e 10 segundos no total. Além disso, o resultado ainda foi uma das temperaturas mais baixas já recriadas em laboratório – ainda que o recorde absoluto ainda pertença ao MIT (Instituto de Tecnologia de Massachusetts).

“Tipicamente, os experimentos com o Condensado de Bose-Einstein envolvem equipamentos que enchem uma sala e necessitam de monitoramento constante por parte dos cientistas, enquanto que o CAL é do tamanho de uma geladeira pequena e pode ser operado remotamente da Terra”, explicou em nota o chefe do experimento no Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Robert Shotwell.

Um único átomo gigantesco

O estado da matéria gerado a bordo da Estação Internacional Espacial foi originalmente proposto por Satyendra Nath Bose e Albert Einstein. Conforme modelo teórico dos cientistas, em temperaturas extremamente baixas, os limites entre os átomos tendem a desaparecer, tornando-os virtualmente idênticos e formando um todo indistinguível do ponto de vista físico.

Isso ocorre porque, em temperaturas muito reduzidas, os átomos têm seus movimentos praticamente interrompidos. Sem energia cinética que os diferencie uns dos outros - espécie de “identidade quântica” -, o que resta é um único átomo gigantesco. Ao chegar nesse ponto, a matéria é então identificada como pertencente a um mesmo estado quântico, semelhante ao que ocorre com partículas como os fótons (em que é impossível distinguir um do outro).

Dois corpos, um mesmo lugar no espaço

Nesse ponto, mesmo máximas como “dois corpos não podem ocupar o mesmo lugar no espaço” são postos em descrédito. Afinal, sem um nível energético diferencial – conforme proposto pelo chamado Princípio da Exclusão do físico Wolfgang Pauli -, nem sequer é possível dizer que há dois átomos ou duas estruturas subatômicas ocupando posições contíguas.

De acordo com os fundamentos da Física Quântica, o nível energético de uma partícula é também a sua identidade - de maneira que a redução proposta pelo modelo de Boson e Einstein tende a formar um todo indistinguível.

Embora o Condensado de Boson-Einstein tenha surgido como um desdobramento teórico da Física Quântica em 1925, a verificação do modelo em laboratório ocorreu apenas no início da década de 1990. Juntamente com líquidos, sólidos, gases e plasmas, o condensado forma os cinco estados da matéria conhecidos pela ciência.

          Climate change science comeback strategies      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

This is a re-post from Yale Climate Connections by Karin Kirk

Science Comeback imageCredit: Image by Karin Kirk.

Staircase wit. L’esprit de l’escalier. It’s the way the perfect response in an uncomfortable conversation comes cruelly late, occurring only after the crux moment has long since passed, and you’re descending the stairs on your way home.

Why didn’t I think of that? you ask, kicking yourself for temporarily forgetting how carbon isotopes show that fossil fuels are indeed the source of the CO2 buildup in the atmosphere.

As the American culture war flares up like a SoCal heat wave, many feel understandably helpless watching misinformation accelerate throughout society. But even as you hit “enter” on a witty post correcting the spelling and grammar of someone who suggests scientists are incompetent, at some level you probably know this doesn’t improve the situation. Lobbing talking points back and forth typically only entrenches deeply held positions, a process known as belief polarization.

Want to see some expert comeback strategies for discussing #climatechange with a doubter?CLICK TO TWEET

So how then, to respond? Do you nod, smile, and walk away with clenched teeth? Do you whip out your smartphone and wave around graphs of ice core data?

Here are four strategies, each from a distinctly different point of view, each penned by an expert, each useful in either a face-to-face conversation on an online chat. The first lesson is this: have a conscious strategy, rather than a knee-jerk response. Think about where you want to go and what your goals are. And if your aim is to simply make the other person feel bad or look bad, then maybe reconsider if that’s helpful to either of you.

Let’s start with one of the most common climate contrarian remarks of all. One we’ve all heard many times: but the climate has changed before!

Quote 1This is a modified version from a commenter on a government science agency Facebook page.

Strategy #1 – Correct the science

At its core, climate change is a scientific topic, although the controversy around it is largely pinned to ideology, rather than to scientific acumen. Nonetheless, a healthy dose of science is rarely a bad idea, as long as it’s delivered in a constructive manner. Remember, climate contrarians who have changed their minds have credited science more than any other factor.

Richard Alley, a widely respected climate scientist and communicator, host and author of the PBS documentary and companion book, Earth – The Operators’ Manual, and presenter of countless standing-room-only scientific talks, offers his scientific debrief of this common contrarian talking point.

Quote 2

Alley continues with his explanation, noting, “In certain settings, experts have some expectation that they will be allowed to make a long enough statement to summarize the knowledge on which they are expert.”

The savvy communicator, Alley knows that even the best science can fall flat without a personal connection. “Responses must be tailored to the person or persons in the discussion, their demeanor, and much more.” And even fabulous lecturers know that a conversation is more effective than a lecture. Alley looks for a fruitful avenue, “Is there a hint of a question … that could be used to open the discussion?”

Quote 3

Strategy #2 – Expose the myth, misinformation, or fallacy

Few may be surprised that most attempts to undermine climate science hinge on some type of misinformation. Cherry-picked data, fake experts, and conspiracy theories are well-worn hallmarks of contrarian rhetoric.

John Cook, founder of Skeptical Science and now a research assistant professor at the Center for Climate Change Communication at George Mason University, has extensive experience unraveling climate denial. Cook’s work has found that a sort of “inoculation” can help with climate misinformation. In other words, if people are exposed to the techniques commonly used in misinformation, they become more resistant to being misled when in the future they encounter bogus information.

So Cook’s response to the example comment is simple. He points directly to the logical fallacy at the heart of the myth, and uses an easy example to illustrate that the statement can’t be correct.

Quote 4

Cartoon

Cognitive science suggests that lengthy, complex information is not as memorable as short, sweet takeaways. Cook uses cartoons and analogies to help message resonate.

Cook explains, “The beauty of this type of response is that by addressing faulty logic, you can demonstrate that an argument is false without having to get bogged down in complicated scientific explanations.” He adds, “Although as a science communicator, I’m always keen to explain the science whenever I get the chance.”

Although it’s tempting to be smug when you feel facts are on your side, that’s unlikely to buy you traction. “Discuss the topic with respect, try to understand their thinking and how they came to their position,” advises Cook. And even more importantly, “Recognize that most people who use this argument are also victims of misinformation.”

Strategy #3 – Engage in dialogue

One of the hardest tasks when faced with someone whose opinions clash with yours is to take a deep breath and do the unthinkable: listen.

Radical Civility Cycle

Credit: Image by Karin Kirk.

Karin Tamerius, M.D., founder and managing director at Smart Politics, is trained in both psychiatry and political psychology. (Could there be a better preparation to understand today’s politics?)

Tamerius innovated an approach termed Radical Civility, which starts off by asking questions and actually listening to the answers. Radical, indeed.

Note how she starts off by agreeing with the commenter, and then asks a probing question.

Quote 5

“This seems to be a person who cares about and believes in science,” observes Tamerius. “For that reason, they are likely to be responsive to an inquiry about how climate science works.”

The Radical Civility Cycle is not a one-and-done approach. It takes several rounds of questions to establish rapport and nudge the conversation toward a productive outcome. Tamerius illuminates her long-game strategy, “I would hope to learn everything this person knows about the history of non-man-made climate change. Then, once they feel fully heard, I would gently explore the ways in which climate change is different in the human era and how we know.”

In an era where arguing dominates much of our public discourse, this technique offers a refreshing alternative. “I’m trying to move the other person from an argumentative to a learning mindset,” Tamerius notes. “I want them to be motivated by curiosity rather than a desire to show they are ‘right.'”

Strategy #4 – Be persuasive

Scott Gruhn doesn’t have formal training in climate science or communications, but he demonstrates admirable skill in both arenas. Gruhn is a tireless, effective defender and explainer of climate science on Facebook. His persuasive posts routinely get people to soften their stance and consider evidence, and he’s even been able to usher a half dozen people to do a complete turnabout in their views.

Like Tamerius, Gruhn settles in for a protected exchange, and kicks things off by praising and respecting the point of view of the commenter.

Quote 6

Gruhn continues, often in a series of shorter posts rather than one encyclopedic and unnavigable post.

Quote 7

Temperature graph

Base image used with permission.

Gruhn often peppers his responses with graphics, and steps readers through the science in a friendly manner. Here, he annotates a graph for easy comprehension.

Taking a cue from John Cook’s strategy, Gruhn makes a point to shine light on tactics used to spread misinformation. He offers these insights as advice to commenters, rather than beating them over the head with it.

Quote 8

Gruhn’s closing advice is something we can all take to heart, and ring ever more true as we unfriend, ignore, and turn our backs on people with different ideologies.

“Know the science. Know your values. Be caring. Don’t expect dramatic, visible changes of heart. Write for the undecided readers. Turn off the computer before your words get too sharp.”

The author is grateful to John Cook of George Mason University for his advice and recommendations on this project.


          Pollution is slowing the melting of Arctic sea ice, for now      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Arctic is one of the “canaries in the coal mine” for climate change. Long ago, scientists predicted it would warm quicker than other parts of the planet, and they were right. Currently, the Arctic is among the fastest-warming places on the planet. Part of the reason is that as the Arctic warms, ice melts and ocean water is uncovered. The ocean is darker than ice so it in turn absorbs more sunlight and increases its warming. This is a feedback loop.

Another reason is that the Arctic doesn’t get that much sunlight so increased energy from the atmosphere has a bigger influence there than it would have elsewhere.

Scientists have looked to the Arctic for clues and hints of human climate change over the past decades. The fact that the Arctic is warming has led to a 70% reduction in the volume of summer sea ice – an enormous loss of ice.

sea ice

 Decline in September Arctic ice extent (not volume). Illustration: Nasa

A recent paper just published in the Journal of Climate by the American Meteorological Society takes an in-depth look at how fast the Arctic ice is melting and why. According to the paper, the authors completed a detection and attribution study of Arctic sea ice decline from 1953 to 2012. That is 60 years of data that tell the picture of climate change. The “detection” part of this study was about detecting what long-term trends are apparent over these six decades. The “attribution” part of the study is figuring out what is the cause of the trends.

Why six decades? Well the authors wanted to go back as far as they could while still accessing high-quality records of the ice extent. They used three different sets of data that record the extent of ice in the region.

In terms of attribution, the authors looked for “fingerprints” of human activity. Humans emit greenhouse gases that trap heat. We know that and we have known that for a long time. Greenhouse gases make the Arctic warmer. But, other things are happening too. There are natural changes to the Arctic. There are also other human pollutants that affect the ice. For instance, humans emit small particles called “aerosols” that can get into the atmosphere and block sunlight. So, these human aerosol emissions can actually cause cooling. 

The authors concluded that the combined cooling effect from human aerosols was detected in all three datasets of ice. That means, it didn’t matter whose measurements you used – the effect of aerosol cooling was present. 

So how much of an effect do aerosols have? It turns out 23% of the warming caused by greenhouse gases was offset by the cooling from aerosols. Unfortunately, this isn’t good news. It means that if/when humans reduce our aerosol pollution, the warming in the Arctic and the ice loss there will be worse.

This puts us into a Faustian bargain. We want to reduce airborne pollution, like sulfur aerosols. But, if we do that, it makes the effects of greenhouse gas pollution worse.

          Así reaccionaron las redes sociales ante el triunfo de la vida en Argentina      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


BUENOS AIRES, 09 Ago. 18 (ACI Prensa).- El rechazo del proyecto de ley del aborto por parte del Senado de Argentina, la madrugada del 9 de agosto, provocó distintas reacciones de organizaciones y figuras públicas dentro y fuera del país.

El proyecto buscaba permitir el aborto hasta la semana 14 de gestación, y hasta los nueve meses de embarazo bajo las causales de violación, riesgo de vida y salud de la madre e inviabilidad fetal. Asimismo, prohibía la objeción de conciencia institucional.

Con su rechazo, el proyecto se cierra de forma definitiva por este año legislativo y recién podría volver a abrirse a un debate parlamentario en 2019.

Tras conocerse el resultado, se difundió en redes sociales un video de agradecimiento a quienes defendieron la vida y levantaron la “revolución celeste”. Alentaron a seguir trabajando por las dos vidas y “que el próximo embate abortista nos encuentre más fuerte”.

En tanto, la plataforma Unidad Provida agradeció “el coraje de los 38 senadores que defendieron con convicción los derechos de las mujeres y los niños por nacer, levantando la voz por los más indefensos, para darles una Argentina más digna e inclusiva”.

La organización que une a las agrupaciones providas en el país sudamericano consideró necesario que se formulen “propuestas superadoras e integrales, para que no mueran más mujeres ni niños por nacer, por aborto legal ni clandestino”.

“No somos ajenos a la profunda grieta que este debate produjo en las entrañas de nuestra sociedad, y que necesitamos curar para construir un futuro para todos. Aún con miradas distintas, compartimos la preocupación por la salud y la vida de las mujeres”, señaló en un comunicado.

Es por eso que hizo un llamado a “un sincero diálogo a quienes, con honestidad, creyeron que la legalización del aborto sería la solución a los problemas de la mujer y a trabajar juntos, desde todos los sectores, por soluciones integrales, superadoras y verdaderamente humanas”.

Por su parte, el experto politólogo argentino Agustín Laje, celebró el rechazo del proyecto del aborto a través de su cuenta en Twitter.

“Hoy fuimos ejemplo para toda América Latina, víctima de intereses internacionales e ideológicos antivida y antifamilia. Que nuestra lucha se expanda por todo el continente: trabajemos mancomunados con nuestros hermanos latinoamericanos en un gran movimiento continental”, publicó.

Desde España, el conocido director de los filmes católicos “La Última Cima” y “Tierra de María”, Juan Manuel Cotelo, también se unió a la celebración en esta red social y afirmó que “la defensa del bebé y de la madre venció al egoísmo de la ideología”.

Patricia Sandoval, activista provida mexicana que abortó tres veces y trabajó para la multinacional del aborto Planned Parenthood, también envió un mensaje a través de su cuenta en Instagram, en el que felicitó a los argentinos por ser “un ejemplo para el mundo demostrando que son gran guerreros por la vida y la familia”.

Otras organizaciones y figuras que se han sumado a la celebración por la vida en redes sociales con Médicos por la Vida Argentina, el ex jugador de rugby argentino Marcos Ayerza, la periodista trasandina Amalia Granata, el periodista deportivo Gastón Recondo, entre otros.

          Ini Cara Terbaik Saksikan Hujan Meteor Perseid      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Hujan meteor Perseid disebut akan menghiasi langit Bumi pada akhir pekan ini, tepatnya 11-12 Agustus 2018. Peristiwa alam langka ini bisa disaksikan tepat pukul dua dini hari waktu setempat.

Disampaikan Badan Antariksa Amerika Serikat, NASA, cara terbaik untuk menyaksikan hujan meteor Perseid adalah dengan menghindari tempat berpolusi cahaya.

Maksudnya, tempat seperti daerah perkotaan yang dipenuhi lampu dan gedung-gedung tinggi. 

“Untuk bisa menyaksikan hujan meteor Perseid, Anda harus menghindari tempat yang banyak cahaya, terutama bagi yang ingin memotret pemandangan hujan meteor,” kata NASA sebagaimana dikutip Space, Jumat (10/8/2018).

Karena itu, tempat-tempat yang minim polusi cahaya seperti pegunungan, desa, sawah, padang rumput, dinilai menjadi tempat yang pas untuk menyaksikan hujan meteor Perseid menghiasi langit malam. 

Pada kesempatan yang sama, Kepala Lembaga Penerbangan dan Antariksa Nasional (LAPAN) Thomas Djamaluddin, mengakui kalau meteor Perseid adalah jenis meteor yang kuat. 

“Perseid itu adalah hujan meteor yang kuat. Jumlah meteornya per jam itu sangat banyak,” tutur Thomas kepada Tekno Liputan6.com via pesan singkat. 

Bagi masyarakat Indonesia pun bisa menyaksikan hujan meteor Perseid dengan mata telanjang dan tanpa alat bantu. Syaratnya, langit harus cerah dan tidak berpolusi cahaya.

“Bisa (disaksikan), asal langitnya harus cerah dan bukan di perkotaan,” tukasnya.

Apa Itu Hujan Meteor Perseid?

Peristiwa alam langka tersebut tentu rasanya tidak bisa dilewatkan begitu saja, apalagi bagi kamu yang sangat menyukai fenomena alam luar angkasa.

Menurut informasi tambahan dari Space, hujan meteor Perseid bakal bisa disaksikan pada 11-12 Agustus 2018 (tergantung pada zona waktu negara masing-masing). 

Nantinya, diprediksi akan ada sekitar 60-70 meteor per jam yang akan melesat di langit malam. 

Badan Antariksa Amerika Serikat, NASA, mengungkap waktu terbaik untuk menyaksikan hujan meteor Perseid adalah pukul dua dini hari waktu setempat.

Sekadar diketahui, fenomena hujan meteor Perseid selalu terjadi setiap musim panas berlangsung setiap tahunnya.

Meteor ini berasal dari pecahan komet Swift-Tuttle yang sebetulnya hanya melewati Bumi setiap 133 tahun dalam perjalannya mengitari Matahari.

Komet tersebut mengitari orbit dan terus terbakar, sehingga pecahannya membentuk hujan meteor dalam kecepatan 37 mil per detik (59 kilometer per detik).

          Bosch y Daimler explican los tipos de sensores y cámaras para conducción autónoma      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

La tecnología Intelligent Drive de Mercedes permite liberar al conductor de los mandos

Seguramente has oído hablar, en muchas ocasiones, de la conducción autónoma y cómo se está montando en diferentes niveles en los modelos que se encuentran actualmente a la venta. Por ponerte un ejemplo, el nuevo Mercedes Clase C hace gala de funciones de conducción autónoma de nivel 2, lo cual es posible por la fusión de sensores, la combinación de de diferentes tecnologías como cámaras ópticas, sensores de radar, de ultrasonidos o LIDAR.

La función principal de estos es controlar continuamente el entorno en tiempo real y ayudan al vehículo a encontrar su camino. Pero no sólo son los cuatro componentes principales de la tecnología de conducción autónoma, sino también de la última creación que Bosch y Daimler se encuentran desarrollando actualmente: un sistema de navegación autónomo. Proveedor y grupo automotriz nos explican las características de cada uno de los componentes, que tienen sus ventajas y desventajas.

Cámaras ópticas

Las cámaras ópticas de los modelos de Mercedes cuentan con un sensor con millones de diodos sensibles a la luz. Dependiendo del número de estos, la resolución de la cámara varía. Su funcionamiento es como el de una cámara convencional: cuando la luz incide sobre el sensor, se transforma en unas señales electrónicas que son procesadas por el propio software de la cámara.

Normalmente, se montan en el parabrisas delantero para tener una vista hacia delante e, incluso en la luneta trasera para una vista posterior o en las laterales si se requiere vista lateral. Con las cámaras ópticas, se procede al reconocimiento de señales de tráfico, semáforos, gestos de policías que dirigen el tráfico o peatones desplazándose hacia la carretera y que se encuentren entre 50 y 500 metros, lo cual al disponer de una precisa imagen es posible clasificar y distinguir entre personas, animales y objetos y darle la mayor importancia a cada uno de ellos.

bosch-daimler-tipos-sensores-camaras-con

En el parabrisas de los modelos de Mercedes se ubica la cámara estéreo, apenas perceptible a simple vista

Sensores de Radar

Son otro tipo de sensores que recogen información gracias a la emisión de ondas electromagnéticas y rebotar contra los objetos procesándose el eco generado y pudiendo medir distancias, velocidad y tamaño al objeto utilizando el efecto Doppler, es decir, según el aumento o disminución de la frecuencia de una onda sonora cuando la fuente que la produce y la persona que la capta se alejan la una de la otra o se aproximan la una a la otra

Además, permiten localizar la posición y si esta cambia comparando la amplitud y la fase de las señales de radar medidas, ya se encuentren estáticos o en movimiento, independientemente de las condiciones climatológicas y de la hora del día. En los modelos de la marca alemana suelen instalarse detrás del emblema de la estrella en la parrilla o en los paragolpes proporcionando información desde apenas 20 centímetros hasta 250 metros y midiendo todos los valores relevantes (ángulo, distancia, velocidad, parámetros del material), sin necesidad de cálculos añadidos.

Sensores LIDAR

A menudo usados en la industria, especialmente para los niveles más básicos de funciones de conducción autónoma, estos sensores se basan en el funcionamiento de la luz láser midiendo el tiempo que transcurre entre el punto desde el que se emite y el choque con el objeto ofreciendo una información más interesante que los sensores de radar convencionales. Normalmente, ofrecen información de todo el perímetro del vehículo encontrándose en los paragolpes delantero y trasero e, incluso en el techo.

bosch-daimler-tipos-sensores-camaras-con

Así funciona un sensor LIDAR: emitiendo una luz láser capaz de detectar y medir con precisión la distancia a un objeto en el espacio

Pero todos ellos tienen una serie de ventajas y desventajas que hacen considerar su uso en determinados modelos o no hacerlo, por lo que a continuación exponemos una tabla con los pros y los contras que cada uno de estos elementos presenta.

SistemasVentajasDesventajas
Cámaras- Buen funcionamiento en condiciones de lluvia y oscuridad
- Adaptable a diversas tareas utilizando diferentes lentes
- Capaz de reconocer colores
- Ángulo de escaneo de hasta 180°, según la necesidad
- Problemas en condiciones de niebla o cuando está sucia
- Sujeta a ilusiones ópticas naturales: lo que parece igual, es lo mismo
- Solo entiende lo que ha sido clasificado
- Mide ángulos, todo lo demás es calculado
Sensores de Radar- A prueba de inclemencias meteorológicas
- Resolución constante y precisión en el haz
- Puede incluso “ver” por debajo del coche
- Ángulo de escaneado hasta 80°
- No reconoce colores
- Reconocimiento de formas limitado
- Considera la radiación electromagnética durante la integración en el vehículo
- Se requiere simulación, por ejemplo, vibración del parachoques del vehículo
Sensores LIDAR- Miden con precisión en 3D distancia, posición y altura
- Alcance de hasta 200 metros o más, según el objeto
- Alcance reducido en condiciones adversas o de suciedad
- No reconoce colores, pero sí las diferencias de reflexión dependiendo del material
- Los de alta resolución son muy caros - Restricciones estrictas debido a las regulaciones de seguridad ocular

Sensores de Ultrasonidos

Hasta ahora no se han utilizado como un estándar pero cada vez tienen mayor presencia, por ejemplo, en los asistentes de aparcamiento, ya que garantizan una perfecta transmisión de información de la distancia al objeto más próximo -máximo seis metros- y a baja velocidad. Estos sensores se basan en los murciélagos enviando cortas señales de sonar que rebotan en los obstáculos y producen unos ecos que se analizan en una unidad central.

Sensor de vídeo

Los sensores de vídeo se montan en las cámaras estéreoscópicas -más conocidas como estéreo- y cuenta con dos lentes para detectar imágenes en el espacio. Montada en el Mercedes Clase S, ofrece un rango de medición totalmente tridimensional capaz de captar imágenes con suma precisión superando los 50 metros de todo el entorno del vehículo, si bien a día de hoy lo más común es que se instale en los faros delanteros y en el parabrisas para proporcionar una imagen de la vista que tenemos en el frente.

En un futuro más lejano -para cuando la conducción autónoma sea plena sin la intervención del propio conductor, entonces se montarán en otra áreas del vehículo para controlar todo el perímetro. Pero, por ahora, lo que ofrece es mucho más de lo esperado y es es capaz de detectar los objetos que se encuentran en el camino, medir su distancia, e incluso reconocer a peatones parcialmente oscurecidos, determinar de manera fiable si el arcén puede ser transitado o no o reconocer  caracteres -diferenciando entre letras y números- en las señales de tráfico.

          BILLY'S LIFE AND HIS WARNING      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Jim and I were walking through an area of displaced commercial property with the idea to buy some stuff. We had no idea in this place of forgotten strip malls and decrepit ventures what was to come next. We heard the cries for help and heard the pack of dogs savagely attacking what at first we thought was a large man. A construction worker, complete with hard hat and safety vest in an empty lot close by. “Get these damn dogs off me!” The dog pack was about 5 strays that had come across Billy in the lot while he was doing his power-line job. He was down. Pushing and kicking and the dogs were all over him. As we ran towards the seen it became apparent the man was big, no huge, at least 400 hundred pounds. The dogs gave way at our approach and ran off in reluctance to leaving their “kill”. I came upon Billy first and noticed the hat laying in the dirt the yellow-stripped safety vest and he was not moving.

Click here to enlarge top photo.

Jim came up next and saw what I saw in disbelief. Billy was covered in fur. Thin in parts and thick in others. He was panting hard from the pain of the dog bites lying prone in the dirt. Billy was a Gorilla! He wore blue workers jeans and a yellow safety vest with stripes and no shirt. He had been bitten on the head, shoulders, torso and legs by the 5 dogs.. As I approached this spectacle, Jim backed away and turned pale white. I reached down to check to see what was up with this person/creature and Jim said out loud, “Don’t touch it!” My reaction having heard the words out of Billy’s mouth was “Call 911, for an ambulance”. Jim complied fumbling with his smart phone, hands shaking and still backing away. I looked down and saw the face of a 400 pound Silver-back mountain gorilla, still not believing what I was seeing. Billy looked up at me and said nothing.The ambulance came tearing up in the dirt and dust and two EMS techs came running over then stopped short maybe 15 feet from where I stood over Billy. “OMG!”  One exclaimed, “WTF is this shit?” He’s hurt, attacked by dogs” I said. You could see the wounds on his fur. I could not tell how badly he was hurt but the look he gave me was one of helplessness. I reached down to check the bites and the second EMS tech must have been on auto-pilot. “Let me see” he said and bent down to check the wounds. They were bad bites but not critical. Having heard Billy speak I asked what is your name? “Billy” he said and coughed up a little spit. Then rolled over and tried to stand. The EMS techs backed away. I asked for them to get the gurney and we between the 4 of us and Jim, reluctantly, loaded him onto the stretcher for the ride to the ER.

(This is a work of fiction.)

“Holy shit it’s an ape!” one EMS tech proclaimed as we drove off. When we arrived I noticed neither tech had informed the hospital of our “patient”. Taking him inside, we were greeted by a profoundly incredulous staff of medical people. The day nurse fainted outright, the other two medical staff stood with jaws dropped as we pushed him into the ER. A on call doctor showed up moments later and had half a sentence, “What do we…….have….” then stood stock still. “Sew him up! he was attacked by a pack of dogs.” I voiced. The doc could not move for 30 seconds then suggested animal control. “For God sake man he’s losing blood! Do something! The doctor became an instant vet so to speak. Billy all the while was awake and looked around like he had never seen the inside of a hospital. He then spoke again. “Thank you”! Everyone in the room fell silent to hearing this.

His injuries were minor compared to what a human being would have endured. They put him in a bed in ICU then the doctor walked in shaking from head to foot. “What the hell did I just do? “You saved a talking Silver-back Gorilla that had been attacked by dogs.” Huh? He said.

Billy meanwhile had been noticed by others and before long “they” showed up. Two men in suits looking like the “Men In Black”. “Who is in charge here?” one said flashing some sort of badge. The on call doc stepped forward, “I am”. You will come with me and you, pointing to me next to the bed, you also. We were hustled into another room, and the door closed behind us.

“You both have seen and heard nothing!” The patient you just brought in here was never here, do I make myself clear? What is going on?” was all I could say at the time. The spook looked long and hard and said “listen very carefully, you have seen nothing, nothing happened here”.

Bullshit! I said, “We brought a full grown talking gorilla into a hospital and you want to make it seem like nothing happened? “

The look on the man’s face changed, he started to look dangerous.

“Sir, this is a national security matter, you have no need to know anything, and do you understand? I said OK to this reluctantly. What else could I say? Besides he was wearing a shoulder holster with a rather nasty looking gun, and sort of made that known.

Billy’s History

In the early 1960’s, the US government was experimenting with a variety of gene therapy and hallucinogenic drugs on subjects that both were aware and unaware of this at the time they became pawns to this experimentation. A primate research center in south western Texas called Area 12 was also being used for research. The center had many animals there imported for use in cancer research and other testing of drugs along with dogs picked up from shelters and the street. Animal research was used to facilitate various issues of such common things as cures for disease and such uncommon things as genetic- based enhancement of the species to see what could be made into a weapon. The USSR was doing the same research in the Ukraine and Siberia at the same time and had gotten far ahead of the USA in this area.

“Billy” was a Silver-back Mountain gorilla used in this research, but I was later told they never gave him any drugs for reasons that will become obvious. It had been shown that mountain gorilla’s had been able to be taught sign language, had cognitive skills far beyond similar primates and also showed reasoning capabilities much like their human counterparts. Billy uttered his first words as a baby with a researcher who at first thought she had heard only a grunt, it later turned out he said the word “more” in that he was asked if he wanted more formula. Later he was thought to just be mimicking words he heard until he independently started making sentences.

It took some tough talking to convince some soulless doctors not to have him dissected and his brain analyzed. He was classified as a Top Secret/SCI code 12 project and transferred to Texas for further study.

Billy rarely vocally communicated his thoughts on matters such as his captivity, instead relied on sign-language to communicate his wants and needs. Scientists from MIT, Psychiatrists from John Hopkins and animal behavior experts were called in to ascertain what and how this creature had come to learn such things and at an incredible pace.

Billy’s reasoning skills were so unique to spin wonder in the mind of scientists of the time. It was later ascertained that somehow his DNA had been spiced with a non-human species as yet unknown to the world. Billy was one of a kind and soon grew up unlike the movies such as “planet of the apes” He had powers beyond his physical strength, mainly psychic and other abilities still to be understood. He was labeled a class “A” being not of this planet but this was wrong thinking. He was merely a enhanced life-form. Enhanced by what means nobody knew but it scared a few people no doubt. As he grew he came to respect and communicate with other life forms. He could communicate with dolphins, had mental transference with elephants and other species. This bothered quite a few doctors and researchers, as they wondered if it also applied to humans.

He was under the watchful eye of special operations security force team. He had his own detail over the next 20 years. First the detail was handpicked to be around him and had to go through training to accept this very odd assignment. His doctors and caretakers consisted of linguists, behavior experts and others. Billy made a friend called Joyce, a animal behavior scientist. Joyce had a PHD in primate studies but also a way with him no other human had. When she passed away from Cancer in the late 1980’s he mourned as a human being would. When they asked him what he was feeling he simply said out loud in English, “Lost, my Joyce”.

Billy had learned cognitive difference and emotional human-like bonding. This further made the scientists concerned as he had gone beyond that which were normal human skills and had abilities to read facial expressions that was at times hard for those around him. Some considered he had ESP and could read minds, instead it was put forth that his knowledge of human body and

facial language and empathy was so acute that he could in micro-seconds know what was about to occur and surmise thoughts..

Billy had a gift of being able to befriend you. It was easy to overlook that the being you were conversing with was not human, weighed 400 + pounds and so on. He never showed any signs of aggression however he could at times show annoyance with his handlers. His security team became so enamored with him he would sometimes play games with them. Once while one of them was standing very close to Billy he looked down and saw his pistol, minutes before in its holster, completely disassembled and neatly laid out on the floor at Billy’s feet. The sentry had absolutely no idea how this could have happened. Others in the room saw no sudden movement. When Billy was asked how he had done this he simply said “Gun’s mojo bad, no work apart”/

He later agreed to not do that again.

In 1991 his security attribute was upgraded to a level 15 Code 2 MAJIC level. NASA was brought in as the active agency overseeing the project. Billy asked for and was given an audience with the tribal elders of the Hopi first nation. At first this seemed a strange request. He asked that no others than the Elders be present at this meeting. After much discussion on security it finally occurred outside. a building in Oraibi, Arizona in May of 1991. I was contacted at this time having nearly forgotten all about Billy or trying to. My life had gone on through a marriage, separation and living in Washington DC at the time. I was told I was requested by Billy but am not sure this was true until I met him again and the expression of warmth and recognition was so overwhelming in his face to make me feel stunned. Hearing him talk in his direct way made me uneasy at first.  My real name will not be used in this story for obvious reasons but the reuniting with Billy went something like this; he used the name Jim, perhaps as that was what he had initially heard when we first met.

I was taken to a room in the building which was sparse except for a shabby sofa and a chair. It had the windows covered and the door into the room was locked behind me. The lighting was good from an opening in the ceiling that was large and showed the sky. The room smelled odd as if Sage had been burned there and a open fire pit was at the center of the room. Billy was sitting near this and as I approached slowly he looked up at me and actually smiled a big smile or this is what I thought I saw. My emotions at this time were all over the map.

Billy: Jim! Friend! Jim! Come sit.

I sat across from him cross-legged on the bare earthen floor. Me: How, What? How is it you request me to come here?

Billy: Do not be feared, It been long time Billy no see Jim. Elders say I bring close friends here at this place.

It amazed me that given his knowledge of English he was direct in his sentence structure not using fancy words or phrases. I when asked a linguist about this later was told Billy had informed him that “Big words like mud in water”.

Me: Have you been treated OK all these years?

Billy: Most good people, some not very smart, some a little crazy like, I here to see the Elders for meeting.

Me: you can speak their language?Billy: I speak with the Elders in way they understand. Me: Why did you request to come here?

Billy looked down at his feet and then up to the opening above us staring with a look I had seen before. It was a sad look and one of concern.

Billy: Jim not sees what is to come, Billy see and Elders too. Much change all around, some good ,some bad, change occur soon.

With those words a light show erupted over the building I can only describe as intense flashing orbs. These zipped over and around the opening then blinked out as if turning off a light switch.

Me: Oh my God, what was that!

Billy: No Fear, no harm to you or others.

With that Billy stood up and as he did the door behind us opened and  many Hopi elders came into the room. They at first looked at me with scowling faces until Billy spoke in Hopi language to them. Their expressions then changed to smiles and laughter and Billy smiled too. I had no idea what was going on having just seen this curious overhead light show. A unmarked black helicopter flew past and Billy told me it would stay away from now on. The Elders sat on the floor opposite Billy who proceeded to talk in their language for a long time. When he finished one of the Elders took me aside and said in English. “You are very blessed to have this one as a spirit helper. He is not what you perceive him to be as animal.” Your people must not stand in his path to block his journey but many will likely try.”

John Moss was one of the Hopi council medicine men. John then returned to the group of Elders and motioned for me to sit down to the left of the  of them. Billy smiled his smile that was disarming to say the least and a little bit unnerving.

Billy then spoke in English perhaps for my benefit.

Billy: Oh wise ones. I here today for blessings from you.  The Great Spirit has been with me always. He shows the change to me to come among you and all others of the Middle World. No fear, no harm, change come soon.

John then talked to Billy in Hopi.

JM: We have made council at your request and thank you for asking our brethren our thoughts on this. We of the Middle World rejoice in this change but know much fear will be shown by those in transition. How can we help them to Alay this fear and keep from doing harm to others?

Billy: Those things you call “Wonders” will help some of you. The beings you call animals will help you. Others who choose not to see will be lost to you for they have given up that which the Great Spirit put inside them for lesser things. For those, I cannot say what at last minute may be for them.

I had never heard Billy talk with such words and phrases before. If you had seen his face and lips moving and hand gestures you would have thought a great Indian Medicine man had come into him or at least overlooked the fact that standing before you was a Talking Gorilla!

JM: It saddens us to hear these things but have seen them in visions as well. When will the others arrive from the Upper World Billy?

Billy: They are already here, but will show of themselves more in coming days.

With that Billy looked up again at the opening in the ceiling and all in the room with him. At first it appeared as a point of silver light high in the sky but as it descended it became a massive globe of metallic silver with rotating and pulsing variations of light around its center. It hovered over the opening perhaps 2000 feet above and at that time started to glow and pulse. Then one of the Elders began to beat a drum and chant. As one by one the others joined in. Billy sat back down and lowered his head as if in prayer. The object caused quite a stir. I was later told as it was seen by those outside the dwelling for miles. Also a curious effect also was seen. All those who saw it gave reports of flashing discharges that occurred unique to each person. When asked

what had occurred, each individual said it was like becoming aware of totality all at once (best description for this as was available at the time).All stated they felt great peace of mind when this occurred and had no longer any fear or apprehension at seeing this what could only be stated as a UFO.

The object stayed stationary for what seemed like a long time then just blinked out. No rapid departure or flight, just a winking out like turning off a light switch. Unknown to those in attendance to this event at the time was another series of occurrences off both the East and West coasts of the US and the Gulf of Mexico, Florida etc. Literally hundreds of thousands of Dolphins and Whales had suddenly showed up close to shore many leaping out of the water. The dolphins made such a racket that they could be heard many miles inland. The Wales caused shipping and pleasure boaters to stop moving for fear of being capsized. Animals even in City Zoos were affected with Bears, Tigers, and others all behaving unlike anyone had ever seen before. Large packs of wild wolves in the Northern Canadian provinces started howling in unison. Large flocks of birds were seen. Even pets, dogs and cats were affected. The second the object blinked out all this activity ceased. The Whales and Dolphins returned to deeper waters, the zoo animals went back to their business and things became “normal” again. At first no one could associate the event in Oraibi with this but it was later seen that geomagnetic anomalies were recorded in these areas that coincided with the high strangeness in Arizona.

Something else happened that later had bearing on these events. Billy’s security team went into high alert mode. Billy bid farewell to his Hopi friends and he had more than a few of his standard security men around him. Their posture was also defensive with automatic weapons at the ready. This bothered me as it could only be concluded there was info of a threat to Billy made to them somehow.

“I am the Right Hand of God!”

I went with the others to Billy’s new location at the request of him and his security team. Once there things seemed to get a little less tense. The building was outside a compound somewhere near Area 12 in Texas. All scientists and NASA personnel were screened for weapons at a checkpoint before they could enter the compound. A few days later started like the ones before. Billy was outside in a area created for him with trees a very pleasant man-made pond with a fountain. Birds were singing and the first rays of light of the new day had broken through some cloud cover. Out of the building came a man in a white lab coat carrying what seemed to be an instrument in both hands. The look on his face was one of determination. He had overpowered a sentry at the door and had walked maybe 20 feet towards Billy when the shots rang out. This took him down in a lump as he dropped the thing he was carrying. That was when I saw it had wires and a blinking light on it. Billy ran towards me with a look of determination as he grabbed me up with one arm and both of us went flying behind a Jersey barrier. Seconds later the most horrendous explosion occurred that caused a shock wave that took the top off the barrier and showered us with debris and dust. Billy and I crouched there for what seemed like minutes as we heard increasing shouts coming from the direction of the blast. The scientist was gone, blown to bits. Security men were on us and checking Billy for injuries and asking if I was OK. What the Hell just happened?  “Sir we have been watching Prof. Johnson for weeks now ever since his wife contacted us about the letter he sent her soon after Oraibi.” “What letter?”

I later was told Prof. Johnson had sent his wife a single sheet of paper with the words “I am the Right hand of God” written on it. She told security that her husband had called her before the letter stating that Billy was an abomination and needed to be destroyed, that God had talked to him and entrusted him to do this and that he would be seen as a savior to mankind. In his delusional state of mind he had not even let his wife speak and simply hung up and the letter then followed. When asked by security about his phone call he simply said “My wife has a drinking problem, I am sorry you had to find out about it in this way” needless to say in a background check the good Prof. came up clean as rain and never was suspected of having been institutionalized at the age of 14 in a psychiatric facility in Georgia in 1976. His parents were later told his issues had been resolved and he was “cured”.  Because he was underage at the time no records came to light in his background investigation.

Security around Billy from that day on was tight. Billy seemed to be saddened by this but took it in stride. The strange meeting with the Hopi elders, the animal event and the attempt on his life seemed to slowly fade as he asked to be able to get out more and do “chores” as he called them. When asked why he felt he needed to do this he simply said “make me smile again”. At first everyone was in agreement to not allow this to occur. But slowly given Billy’s ways of affecting people they reneged and he was allowed to do lineman’s work usually in rural unpopulated areas under the watchful eyes of his security team. He had a gift of being able to isolate telephone and cable outages and repair these easily. Of course the company that contracted out to have him do the service was given a false picture and statement that the person doing the work was a former tech but was under the witness protection program of the US Marshall’s service. It mattered little as the contract award was in the tens of millions of dollars, for that money the owner said he would hire a chimpanzee! The calls came in and Billy was shuttled to areas all over the southwest. He had to wear a custom made coverall jumpsuit and hardhat. Billy I think in his boredom just really enjoyed doing something useful and being outside everyday he was going somewhere different however remote or isolated.

For all his abilities he still kept a great sense of humor. One of his men on his security team freaked a bit when he opened up his thermal lunch bag to find a live baby iguana pop up. Billy actually laughed and the mood of these professional soldiers also took a roll into smiles and comments on how SGT so and so had a wife who couldn’t cook very well. Still Billy seemed at times to gaze out at night at the stars as if waiting for something or someone. That day came in 2013.

Still Billy seemed at times to gaze out at night at the stars as if waiting for something or someone. That day came in 2013.

“The Tipping Point”

When Billy was asked about the meaning of the ship seen at Oraibi he simply stated “Friends”. When pressed on this he gave nothing vocalized words in an unknown language. He also had evolved to the point where he used telepathy at times instead of words to speak directly into the minds of those around him. For most this was not a problem but you did have to be careful as to what you were thinking!

Billy’s last days were like all the others before them with his “chores” and return to the compound. Then he simply disappeared. Search teams were sent out in a 25 mile radius to no avail. Government types were postulating on perhaps an inside job of kidnapping but soon gave up on this idea. His security team as bewildered as the rest were debriefed and later sent to other duties. The Area 12 site was closed and shuttered and fenced off with signs that said “US Government Property, Unauthorized Personnel beyond this point are subject to arrest and deadly force is authorized” and they meant it. I went back to my life as an IT guy and later retired having wondered what happened to Billy and why he so suddenly had gone missing. Then one morning I heard a voice come from my living room.

Billy sat on my sofa in my apartment like he had walked through the door with a key. I was living alone at the time and the door was always locked behind me. At first I about dropped dead of surprise, he then stated:

Billy doing his “Zen” thing.

 

“Jim, Billy no fear, mean no harm, missed you” He was voicing these words with his own tongue.“You surprised to see Billy?”

“Hell yes, what happened in Texas? Where did you go and where have you been?” Billy: Friends came got me, went up with them. They are you say, my parents.

Me: Are you telling me you come from another world? Billy: No I born here but conceived up there

Me: Why are you back here now?

Billy: In two of your years the change to your world will come about. Many others like me are just now being born now and many of your young ones have been gifted with this change already and I am preparing them for this. A tipping point has become. All life here will change

Me: Are you talking the end of the world? Billy: The beginning of a New One.

 

 With that the apartment filled with a bright bluish-white light so intense it was blinding. When I could see again he was gone. It was then that I became aware that my movements had been under a watchful eye over the last few years as a a team of heavily armed men broke down the door. As they told me not to move others went room to room calling out “Clear”. When the leader came back in the living room his words were “Where is he?” All I could think to say was “He’s gone”. I was taken to a room somewhere and spent the next few hours describing my movements of the last 48 hours which was meaningless in light of what had happened. When I told them what Billy had relayed to me, a look of abject fear overcame every face in the room. I was then unceremoniously kicked to the curb and told to say nothing about what happened to anyone and that I was still under surveillance. It had seemed that since I first met Billy, things had come full circle.

When I returned to the apartment it was in shambles. All my furniture had been destroyed and papers were tossed about. Even my car had been broken into. At that point what else could I do but start to write down the events I am relating to the reader now. The two years Billy mentioned are about to come to the end and I am not aware of anything catastrophic looming on the horizon. Why I was made a part of this bizarre series of plays I cannot fathom. Billy no doubt knows more of what lies ahead for us than we can even imagine.

Here are various pictures taken of Billy over the time he was with me. Most were taken unawares of the project team. Some were released under a cover story by those in the know to keep others off the trail of the true nature of Billy and his time here.

          THE CABRERA STONES: DO THEY PROVE ALIEN INTERFERENCE IN EARTH’S EVOLUTIONARY TIME-TABLE 400-MILLION YEARS AGO?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Dr. Javier Cabrera Darquea's (1924-2001) collection of remarkable stones in his office in Ica, Peru, ranged in size from fist-sized rocks to rather hefty boulders--and they were all covered with weird petroglyphs. Many of the largest of the stones appeared to depict bizarre looking, five-fingered, pointy¬-nosed people fighting off giant reptiles with what appear to be Viking-styled battleaxes.

Click here to enlarge top photo.

When we called on Dr. Javier Cabrera Darquea in September 1990, he met us in a most gracious manner. He seemed at first somewhat cautious in explaining his theories. However, once we had made it understood through our broken Spanish and the efforts of our interpreter Sara Lazo that we would be the last to condemn him for his speculations about a world before our own, we received numerous provocative concepts.

Picture: Cabrera stone

Dr. Cabrera, a medical doctor who specialized in circulatory ailments by day and conducted archaeological digs by night, claimed that he first became interested in the controversial engraved stones of Ica when, in May, 1966, a childhood friend, Felix Llosa Romero, presented him with a small specimen that might be used as a paperweight.

Intrigued by the notion of what the stone might represent, Dr. Cabrera began to search for the mysterious rocks near Ica on land that his father owned in Sallas. Fortuitously for his excavations, an earthquake provoked a landslide which exposed a large deposit of the picture rocks.

Many of his most severe detractors insist that Dr. Cabrera hired Indians to carve the petroglyphs; and to the frustration of his defenders, he refused to divulge the exact location of the perplexing cache of stones so that impartial experts might examine the site for themselves.

Dr. Cabrera held fast to his theory that the petroglyphs were fashioned by proto-humans who lived near what is now present-day Ica over 230 million years ago, during the Mesozoic Era.

Furthermore, he believed that those prehistoric humanoids were genetically engineered by extraterrestrials who first visited Earth as long ago as 400 million years.

In response to questions about supportive data regarding the incredible antiquity that he claims for the stones, Dr. Cabrera produced documents from various geologists and petrologists declaring the stones to be derived from  lava flows dating from the Mesozoic Era, characteristic of the zone where they were found.

On April 29, 1975, Josef F. Blumrich, the NASA scientist who developed the design of the Saturn V and participated in the design of Skylab, expressed his opinion about Dr. Cabrera's discoveries in these words: “I am deeply impressed by what I have seen here, and I am happy to have found so much direct evidence of what I began to feel and to understand before. There is no doubt in my mind about the authenticity of these stones.”

Several of Dr. Cabrera's most cherished stones that we saw that day portrayed the otherworldly genetic engineers seeking to perfect a progenitor of Homo sapiens, using first the amphibians, then the reptiles, and finally early mammalian life forms to arrive eventually somewhere near the step on the evolutionary ladder where we stand today.

Dr. Cabrera agreed that the stones’ existence may stretch the scientific imagination--but he tirelessly and consistently argued with his critics that the stones are genuine, not the products of an elaborate hoax.

“We know that Mesozoic rocks date from around 230 million years ago,” he told us, smiling as he tapped one of the engraved stones with a metallic pointer. “And although this date of roughly 250,000 years ago is far removed from the accepted date of the appearance of man on Earth, I believe that it is not scientific to dismiss the evidence of these engraved stones which demonstrate the existence of humans in a previous, unknown past.”

Some of the most remarkable petroglyphs in Dr. Cabrera's museum appeared to depict the five-fingered proto-humans conducting brain surgeries, heart transplants, liver operations, and other medical procedures which have no known counterparts. Others portrayed the proto-humans riding horses and pulling wheeled carts and other vehicles.

Strangely enough, the great majority of the petroglyphs depicted the proto-humans as possessing no opposing thumbs.

Because even the most primitive apes have opposing thumbs--both in the fossil record and in the modern worId--Dr. Cabrera seized upon this anomaly as additional proof that his proto-humans predated the apes. “These entities without opposing thumbs were designed to be as intellectual as their genetic creators,” he explained.  “They were genetically engineered to be reflective people--scientists, philosophers, artists of the highest order. Those entities who have opposing thumbs were genetically engineered to be the workers, to be assigned to common labor tasks.”

It was Dr. Cabrera's further contention that great numbers of the prehistoric humanoids were destroyed by a cataclysmic disaster shortly after they had accomplished many important contributions to posterity, including the pyramids of Egypt.

The superscience of the extraterrestrially spawned and programmed “reflective humans” enabled them to recognize the signs of approaching cataclysms and to make preparations to return to their ancestral planetary home.

“All that remained on Earth,” he explained, “were the majority of the people of lower intellectual capabilities than the reflective, scientific types. The workers and laborers with opposing thumbs were left behind.

“After the great cataclysm, which gave final form to the continents of Earth, a few of these prototypical humans survived; and those few, after a long and difficult path through time and across continents, became the remote, but direct, ancestors of modern humans,” Dr. Cabrera commented.

“I think that the fossilized bones, skulls, and skeletons that anthropologists have and continue to find, are, if not these same men, then their descendants, which explains why every day older and older human fossils are being found.”

Cancun Riviera Maya Sargassum Seaweed Mexico

The Mexican has invested $200 Million Pesos to clean the Cancun´s beaches at all. 


Credits : Oscar Cadena

With an investment of 200 million pesos, this Wednesday begins work to install the first barrier in Punta Nizuc, in Cancun, which aims to divert the sargassum into the sea and redirect it with the help of wind and natural marine currents. The objective is to avoid massive coverage of the coastline, and generate greater environmental and economic impacts to the Mexican Caribbean. As before, the sargassum that remains on the shore of the beaches will be manually removed and deposited in places of final disposal. The sargasso will be removed with seven structures that the government of Quintana Roo hired from the Goimar Goimsa Group, and the collection will be carried out through amphibious bands or suction bands, explained to El Universal the titutal of the Secretariat of Ecology and Environment of Quintana Roo (Semaqroo), Alfredo Arellano Guillermo. The first fence will serve as a pilot, the other remaining will be placed later in Tulum, Playa del Carmen, Mahahual and Puerto Morelos. Yesterday, during the private meeting that members of the state cabinet held with hoteliers, and in a second open meeting with social sectors, academics and organized civil society, the project to contain sargassum was announced. They explained that the problem is not going to be solved, because it depends on the currents and the winds, but it can reduce the amount (of sargassum) that reaches the beach. They are plastic barriers, canvas, buoys to float, with a width to the bottom of 50 centimeters, to retain the sargasso & quot ;. Also, the owner of Ecology and Environment clarified that "the type of mesh does not threaten the fauna, which can go under it, without any problem. & Quot; For his part, the coordinator of advisers to the state government, Felipe Ornelas said that the work of collecting on land will be maintained along with the diversion of algae in the sea, to avoid burying sargassum on beaches, under the own sand, otherwise, there would be significant environmental impacts on the ecosystem, for example, it would change the color of the beach, its composition and quality.


We recently reported on the unusual amounts of seaweed or pelagic Sargassum that are washing ashore on beaches throughout the Mexican Caribbean. This is not confined to the state of Quintana Roo, the Caribbean islands and the Gulf coast of the United States, from Texas to Florida, are reporting similar experiences. While it is natural for seaweed to come ashore after storms and for warmer water temperatures in the summer to cause it to breed more quickly (a phenomenon known as a bloom), such large quantities of seaweed are rare.




What is pelagic Sargassum?
Two species of pelagic Sargassum are washing ashore, they are also known as Common Gulfweed (Sargassum natans) and Broad-toothed Gulfweed (Sargassum fluitans). Sargassum comes from the Portuguese word sargaço, which means “little grapes,” a reference to the air-filled bladders that enables it to float on the surface and move with the currents. Unlike other algae that are rooted in the seabed or attached to rocks or corals, it can grow and reproduce as it drifts through the water. And when fragments break off the main plant, they can also reproduce, contributing to the formation of carpets of seaweed.
Pelagic Sargassum is associated with the Sargasso Sea in the Atlantic Ocean where vast beds of this free-floating seaweed are a habitat for many creatures such as microscopic plants, shells, shrimp, tiny crabs, sea horses and eels and are a nursery for four species of baby turtles and fish, including jacks, tuna and mahi-mahi. In fact, 120 species of fish and more than 120 invertebrates make their home among the plants. Migrating schools of fish also use the dense mats of weed as a refuge from predators such as sailfish and marlin, and seabirds and shore birds feed on the seaweed’s bounty.
Ocean currents such as the Gulf Stream, the North Atlantic Current and the North Equatorial Current transport Sargassum and it is found naturally in the northern Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. Yet mats and lines of it are now being seen in areas where it has not been reported before or is very rare, and blooms have been reported in areas of the Atlantic not directly associated with the Sargasso Sea, such as the coast of South America. There may be multiple sources for the seaweed proliferation currently affecting the Caribbean and it may come ashore in different locations at different times during the year.




Where does the seaweed affecting the Mexican Caribbean come from?
To date, the origin of the Sargassum coming ashore on the coast of Quintana Roo and other parts of the Caribbean is unknown, however, marine biologist Rosa Rodriguez Martinez of the National Autonomous University of Mexico Marine Research Field Station in Puerto Morelos told us about one possible theory. It may come from as far afield as the coast of Brazil, thousands of kilometers to the south.
This was the source area for a massive island of seaweed spotted in April 2011 to the north of the Amazon estuary in Brazil where it had never been seen before. By July the same year it had dispersed into smaller patches and tons of it were washing up on beaches in the Eastern Caribbean from Trinidad to the Dominican Republic, where it became known as “the golden tide.” Ocean currents had even taken it across the Atlantic to West Africa, where it affected a stretch of coastline from Sierra Leone to Ghana.
Deforestation continues unchecked in the Amazon Basin and northern Brazil and without tree roots to anchor them tropical soils are easily eroded. It is thought that higher than average rainfall levels in 2010 and 2011 washed greater amounts of soil, organic waste, fertilizers and other chemicals into the sea. This influx of nutrients, which could also have been supplemented by nutrients from upwellings of colder water at sea and dust from the Sahara, may have provided optimum conditions for the alga to thrive.




Why is there so much seaweed at caribbean beaches
Theories abound on what is causing the seaweed to bloom in such huge quantities
Rising water temperatures due to climate change and excessive nutrients from nitrate fertilizers, pesticides and waste that find their way into the ocean are thought to be important factors. The water temperatures in the Caribbean are warmer this year and traces of chemicals can affect the balance of the marine ecosystem in many ways.
Other theories are that the appearance of drifting mats of Sargassum may be due to changes in wind patterns linked to El Niño that affect the ocean currents that circle the Sargasso Sea or that it is an environmental impact that can be traced to the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico or to oil exploration. Other scientists attribute it to the use of certain types of pesticides in southern US, Colombia and Brazil that find their way into rivers and then into the sea.
Different factors may have come into play in different areas affected by Sargassum. Marine biologists do not know yet whether this is a rare event and or whether it will prove to be cyclical.




When seaweed comes ashore
Seaweed has always washed ashore on the Quintana Roo coast; it is a natural occurrence. The fact that this season it is doing so in much larger quantities does not mean that the beaches of the Mexican Caribbean are dirty or polluted. In fact, Cancun was recently awarded the prestigious Blue Flag for six of its beaches, an international standard of excellence for beach cleanliness and many other area beaches in in the process of applying for Blue Flag certification.
When Sargassum is beached, marine creatures that are trapped die and begin to decay; this is what causes the distinctive, short-lived fishy odor, not the seaweed itself.
Although seaweed is completely harmless and does not sting, it is a good idea to shower after swimming in the sea and wash your swimsuit. Sometimes microscopic creatures called hydrozoa, tiny jellyfish or sand flies are trapped in the weed and a few of them may occasionally cause a rash, by rinsing thoroughly you will be eradicating them.




What’s being done?
Beach cleaning is being carried out on a daily basis in Cancun, Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel and other resort areas such as Akumal, Tulum and Mahahual. In the third week of July, the Federal Government authorized additional funds for Municipal governments to hire more people to clean the beaches and conservation groups, soldiers and people from all walks of life are also volunteering to help remove the seaweed that washes ashore.
As it is sea turtle season, most cleaning is done manually and there are restrictions on heavy machinery such as bulldozers that could damage nests and their precious eggs. In Cancun, the authorities have given permission for lightweight diggers to be used during the day and only on the sand that is closest to the waves. The methods used will be carefully controlled to prevent damage to the beaches.
Reconnaissance flights and boat patrols will keep track of patches of seaweed as they move north through the Yucatan Channel, identifying those that could make landfall.
All along the coast, turtle guardians are keeping an eye on adult turtles coming ashore to nest on beaches where there may be seaweed and will watch over the hatchlings as they are born later in the season to ensure that they do not become entangled in it.
The local authorities, hotel associations and Mexican environmental agencies SEMARNAT and CONANP are working with local biologists, and experts from the Universidad Autónoma de México on a statewide cleaning and disposal plan for the seaweed.
Once the salt has leached out of seaweed it can be composted and it makes an excellent fertilizer. In Puerto Morelos, some of the seaweed removed from the beaches is already being deposited in an old quarry and it could eventually be used in the parks and gardens.
In other areas of the Mexican Caribbean, although not in Cancun, the seaweed is being buried in the dunes and the soil formed will boost plant growth. Seaweed anchors the sand and helps protect the shoreline from erosion. When seaweed is left to decompose naturally on the sand, it actually contributes to the growth of the beach.
Sargassum is consumed in other parts of the world or given to farm animals as part of a dietary supplement and it is believed to have healing properties. These uses may also be studied as part of the disposal program.




Satellite tracking
Government and tourism officials and local institutions are now in contact with experts from Texas A & M University who are working with NASA to use satellite imagery to track the floating patches of seaweed as they are move through the Caribbean, the Yucatan Channel and the Gulf of Mexico. With more information they can forecast when larger patches of seaweed are approaching the coast and can plan accordingly. This project also monitors the Sargasso situation in the Caribbean islands, from Grenada and Barbados to Puerto Rico.
In another initiative, the Gulf Coast Research Laboratory at the University of Southern Mississippi is collecting reports from all over the Caribbean. Using the information they receive from different parts of the Caribbean, the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico, satellite imagery and the movements of marine currents they can identify Sargassum source areas, track the floating seaweed and try to understand why it is reproducing so quickly.




Beach cleaning at Royal Resorts
At Royal Resorts beach cleaning brigades are out every morning. The fact that they work before the hottest part of the day means that you may not see them but they are doing their utmost to keep the sand looking beautiful.
We will give you further updates on the seaweed and the beach cleaning program as more information becomes available.

          Blue Jays Announcers Say The Red Sox "Took A Lot Of Heat" For Signing J.D. Martinez      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
How annoyed was I by all the crap during Tuesday's NESN broadcast? I realized, in the interest of my short-term sanity, I should listen to the Blue Jays' feed, with Buck Martinez and Pat Tabler, on Wednesday.

Although Martinez and Tabler praised every facet of the Red Sox team and organization for three hours, it was dreadful. Martinez's nasal whine is something you never get used to and Tabler's analysis invariably devolves into an aural instruction manual on how to play the game. But they did say a few amazing things while the Red Sox were pounding out 10 runs:
1. The MVP doesn't just have the best stats or is the best player. He's the most valuable.

2. The "analytical world" discounts the value of the stolen base.

3. The Red Sox took a lot of heat for signing J.D. Martinez.

4. A player with an OPS of .800 or higher is a "superstar".
T2, Jackie Bradley at the plate:
Buck Martinez: And that's the beauty of this Red Sox ball club. You can shut down their big guys, but there are enough bats in this lineup to do a lot of damage.

Pat Tabler: And that's why I think J.D. Martinez is going to get a lot of votes for the MVP. It depends on how you define MVP and what he means to a team. It's not just the guy with the best stats or the best player. It's the guy who is the most valuable, and by him going into this lineup, it's made everybody around him better and they've got some really good hitters at the bottom of the lineup now. ... That was the one thing missing from the Boston Red Sox last year, was that run producer in the middle of the lineup. Right now, they are the best hitting team in the American League. [Bradley walks]

Martinez: Yeah, and you know this, having been a player. When you have that horse in your lineup, everybody kind of defers to him. They say, well, okay, if we get in a jam, J.D. will take care of us. If we get up against a tough pitcher, J.D. will take care of us. Really takes a lot of pressure off the rest of the lineup.

Tabler: I remember that like it was yesterday, in 1992, when Dave Winfield came over here. That was the type of influence he had on the team, exactly the same kind that J.D. Martinez has had on the Red Sox this year.

Martinez: David Ortiz was that guy for so many years for the Red Sox. Of course, he didn't play last year and they really missed that presence. 1-0 to Eduardo Nunez. Bradley is perfect this season in steal attempts, he's 11-for-11. As I mentioned on the pre-game show, this is another aspect of the Red Sox that people were overlooking, their ability to steal bases.

Tabler: Yesterday, going into that game, they were tied for the league lead with 87. They picked up a couple more yesterday.

Martinez: The analytical world discounts the value of the stolen base, but having been a former catcher, I can tell you - it's a distraction. It's a distraction for the pitcher, the catcher, and the middle infielders. Everybody's got to keep an eye on Jackie Bradley Jr.
Tabler's explanation - the Most Valuable Player is the most valuable player - is not helpful.

When things look bleak, other Red Sox hitters are saying "J.D. will take care of us"? I do not believe that for a micro-second.

The analytical world does not discount the value of the stolen base. That is nonsense. Theo Epstein is happy to tell you there is a place for the stolen base in the modern game. But, as with bunting, the risk in many cases is not worth the reward. This FanGraphs article states that "stolen bases are only beneficial if they are swiped with roughly a 75% success rate":
This number stems from looking at a run expectancy chart and comparing the difference in expected runs after a successful stolen base and the difference in expected runs after a failed attempt. ... Of course the break-even point is not the same for every situation. Previous studies have shown this required success rate drops as the game moves into the later innings and increases the further a team is down by ...
I'm a huge supporter of "the analytical world" and I love the fact that the Red Sox run. They do it smartly and that shows in their high success rate.

T5, Mookie Betts leading off:
Martinez: Boston, the first team to record 80 wins this season. They were also the first team to have 80 wins in 2009.
No, they were not.

The 2009 Red Sox won their 80th game on September 8. At that point, four other teams had already won more than 80 games, including the Yankees with 90. Before 2018, the last time the Red Sox were the first team to 80 wins was 2007, when they were 80-51 on August 26.
Still T5:
Martinez: We mentioned the 80-34 record, the franchise's best winning percentage all-time. And they are projected to have 114 wins. Been a long time since they've gotten off to this great start.
Yes, never before is certainly a long time. Also, can 114 games be considered "a start" of a season?

Still T5:
Martinez: This is the guy, J.D. Martinez, signed as a free agent and - the Red Sox took a lot of heat for signing him. Like, really? We don't need his bat. Boy, do you ever need his bat. And the difference is dramatic.

Tabler: It was late, too, wasn't it?

Martinez: Real late.

Tabler: Late in the off-season.

Martinez: February, yep. Nobody wanted to step up.
Who with any connection to the Red Sox - from John Henry all the way down to seven-year-old fans - said of J.D. Martinez: "We don't need his bat"? And the organization took heat for signing him? When? Where? Who? ... Maybe other teams in the AL were pissed that a division winner for the last two seasons had now added a great hitter to its lineup, but that's about it.

They also seem to fault the Red Sox for not "stepping up" earlier to sign JDM. Dave Dombrowski's waiting game was an off-the-charts success because the Red Sox were able to get Martinez for about $100 million less than what he was reportedly looking for/expecting. This was one of the biggest stories of the winter - and Martinez and Tabler get it wrong from every possible angle.
B4, Devon Travis leading off:
Martinez: He got off to a slow start and was eventually sent back to the minor leagues. ... Since he's come back from AAA, Pat, he's been a very consistent hitter.

Tabler: And I love the OPS. His on-base plus his slugging. Up over .800. That's superstar territory right there. If you have a second baseman with an OPS of .800 or better, you've got a really good player.
Tabler considers a player with an .800 OPS a "superstar"? Going into last night's games, there were 63 players in the major leagues with an OPS of .800 or higher. That seems like an excessive amount of "superstars" to me.

Among MLB second basemen, there were five with an OPS over .800 and another two above .790. Could there be five (or seven) second basemen that qualify as superstars? If seven, that would mean that roughly one out of every four teams has a superstar at second base. Not just a really good player, or a star, or an All-Star, but a "superstar".

In May, Bill James posted an article titled "So what is a Superstar, zactly?"
You can make a relatively clear determination as to how many players in baseball are considered "stars". It's 2 to 5 per team. It is very clear, from the way that the word is used, that every team has stars. Baltimore has not been winning a lot of games this year, but you can still say who the stars of the team are (Manny Machado and Adam Jones). ...

An announcer will say about an opposing team that "There are a lot of stars on their roster" or "there are not many stars on this team", but he will very rarely say that there are NO stars on the team. ... The number of "stars" per team has to be somewhere between 2 and 5, so let's say that it is 3 or 4.

I'm not trying to tell you how many players should be considered stars; I am merely observing how the term is used. If you want to say "That is too many players to be considered stars; there should only be about 20 players in baseball considered 'true stars',", that's fine, but what you are really saying is that "I want to define the word differently than everybody else uses it." Define it however you want, but don't expect other people to pay attention to you.

If there are 3 or 4 stars per team, that means 90 to 120 in baseball. Let's say 100. If we have 100 "stars" in baseball, and 7 players who are superstars [this info from more than 2,000 fans in a poll James conducted], then we have an answer to one of the questions which causes confusion in this discussion: What percentage of stars should be considered superstars? It's about 7%. My best guess.

Having reached that realization, I then thought that maybe it would be fun to draw up a list of who exactly was a superstar at each moment in baseball history.
I love it: "maybe it would be fun". ... James quickly realizes that the number of superstars "has to be more like 15%". The entire article is, as you might expect, extremely interesting.
          Un cacciatore di tesori nascosti di Discovery Channel trova tracce "di un UFO sotto il Triangolo delle Bermuda"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Il cacciatore di tesori nascosti di Discovery Channel Darrell Miklos sostiene di aver trovato tracce di un'astronave extra-terrestre, mentre esplorava antichi relitti sotto il Triangolo delle Bermude. Lo riporta il Daily Mail.

L'esploratore si è servito di alcune mappe segrete del famoso astronauta della NASA, Gordon Cooper. Cooper fu il primo astronauta a viaggiare da solo, e si ritiene sia stato anche il primo americano a dormire nello spazio. Nel 1963 la sua navicella, la Faith 7, circumnavigò la Terra 22 volte, stabilendo un nuovo record di volo. Per 34 ore, senza potersi muovere, Cooper ebbe l'incarico di cercare dall'alto dei siti per un lancio nucleare, ma finì per imbattersi in un ammasso di rottami metallici in fondo all'oceano.

Darrell Miklos

Che fosse un "tesoro sommerso"? Se sì, di quale tipo di "tesoro" avrebbe potuto trattarsi? La trasmissione Cooper's Treasure condotta dallo stesso Darrell Miklos, infatti, sta tentando di verificare puntata dopo puntata se le anomalie riscontrate dall'astronauta possano davvero essere legate a un "tesoro".

Ora la rivelazione sconvolgente: durante la sua esplorazione, Miklos si è imbattuto in un enorme oggetto sommerso non identificato (USO), riguardo cui ha dichiarato che si trattava di una "formazione diversa da qualsiasi altro relitto da naufragio mai visto". La presunta navicella spaziale, infatti, era lunga quasi 100 metri (300 piedi) e presentava delle lunghe protuberanze sui lati.

Insomma, si tratterebbe di un vero e proprio mistero nel mistero. Il Triangolo delle Bermude, infatti, negli anni è stato protagonista della scomparsa di 75 aerei e di centinaia di navi. Nel tempo, sono state avanzate diverse teorie per spiegare le cause di tali catastrofi: forze paranormali, interferenze elettromagnetiche capaci di rompere le bussole, maltempo, correnti del Golfo o influenza di enormi depositi sottomarini di metano. Ma adesso a quella serie di interrogativi se ne aggiunge un altro: nei pressi delle Bermuda è finito anche un UFO?

          NASA Braves The Heat To Get Up Close And Personal With Our Sun       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Early Saturday morning, if all goes as planned, 91-year-old Eugene Parker will watch a NASA spacecraft named after him blast off on an unprecedented mission to study the sun.

"It's my first rocket launch, so that will be very interesting," says Parker, a retired astrophysicist who lives in Chicago.

NASA has never named a spacecraft after a living person before. But Parker's colleagues say it's appropriate that this one bears his name. The Parker Solar Probe will get up-close-and-personal with the fiery sun, closer than any spacecraft ever, and Parker is almost a God-like figure among those who study this special star.

"In our field, he's definitely a celebrity," says Angela Olinto, an astrophysicist at the University of Chicago, where Parker worked for decades. "Most of science is done by a lot of small steps by a lot of different people. He is one of those few people that we know that have made big breakthroughs a few times."

His first came in 1958, when Parker predicted that the sun was constantly spewing out a stream of charged particles at supersonic speeds. He called it the solar wind.

To his critics, this idea seemed laughable. One even suggested he should go to the library and do some reading before trying to write papers on this subject. "And the question is 'Well, what do they think now?'" asks Parker, with a chuckle, adding, "they're all dead by now so it doesn't really matter."

He says it's normal, in science, that something new and different won't be believed. "So it was no surprise," says Parker. "It was annoying, but no surprise."

Soon enough, measurements made in space proved that Parker was right about the solar wind. This was just the beginning of a long career filled with insights that basically started the field of heliophysics, the study of the space environment around our star and how it affects Earth and the other planets.

Parker recalls that the head of science at NASA recently called him up and asked if he'd object if they named the new solar probe after him. "And I said, 'Why no, I guess not,'" recalls Parker, who says he found the honor "rather flattering."

The Parker Solar Probe will be going to the sun's corona, "the atmosphere that we could all see on August 21st when we had a total solar eclipse," says Nicola Fox of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, who is the mission's project scientist.

After traveling for seven years, the spacecraft will come within four million miles of the sun's surface — and will be going really fast.

"We'll be moving at about 430,000 miles an hour, which is about 118 miles a second," says Fox, explaining that it will be the fastest object ever made by humankind "by an awful lot."

To protect it from temperatures that could reach up to 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit, the probe has a heat shield made up of a special foam that's 4.5 inches thick. "It kind of looks like the florist's foam that you would use to make flower arrangements. It's very similar in feel and in texture," says mission system engineer Jim Kinnison. "This, though, is pure carbon."

Behind this shield, where the instruments are, it will be room temperature. The probe's measurements will hopefully help explain mysteries like how the solar wind gets accelerated and why the corona is so weirdly super hot — 300 times hundred times hotter than the sun's surface.

"That just shouldn't happen. It just kind of defies the laws of nature," says Fox. "If you move away from a heat source, it should get cooler. But for us it actually gets hotter."

Figuring that one out is something Eugene Parker is looking forward to. "It'll be really fun to be able to close in on that problem," he says.

He adds that although the probe is named after him, the real credit should go to the crew that was able to build a spacecraft capable of withstanding such an extreme space environment.

"I hope the launch is successful," says Parker, "and that the spacecraft does what it's expected to do."

          Dónde ver las Perseidas 2018 en Madrid      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
La próxima noche del sábado 11 de agosto hasta la mañana del domingo 12 se podrán ver las famosas Perseidas, también conocidas como Lágrimas de San Lorenzo. Madrid no es exactamente el lugar perfecto para contemplar las estrellas o cualquier fenómeno meteorológico, pues las noches no son oscuras por culpa de la contaminación lumínica y apenas se vislumbra algo más que edificios al levantar la cabeza. Sin embargo, siempre hay buenas alternativas y rincones en los que poder disfrutar de un cachito del cielo de Madrid. En el centro Dentro de la ciudad de Madrid existen mil opciones para divertirse y disfrutar de experiencias distintas cada día... y cada noche. Azoteas, miradores o parques son los mejores lugares para observar las Perseidas. Una de las azoteas por excelencia es la del Círculo de Bellas Artes. En pleno corazón de Madrid, las vistas son espectaculares y es posible disfrutar de las estrellas hasta la madrugada, pues cierra a las 02.30 horas durante los fines de semana. Otro buen lugar puede ser el Mirador de las Vistillas, con la Catedral de la Almudena de fondo, o el Faro de Moncloa, para aquellos que no tengan miedo a las alturas. Los parques son los más buscados para pasar una noche estrellada. La Casa de Campo se encuentra bastante alejada de la ciudad y, por tanto, de las luces. El Parque Juan Carlos I, uno de los más grandes de Madrid, es un lugar tranquilo y con algunas pequeñas montañas sobre las que poder tumbarse a contemplar este fenómeno. El Cerro del Tío Pío o Parque de las Siete Tetas, en Vallecas es otro de los más elegidos para ver las Perseidas. En las afueras Para ver el grueso de la lluvia de estrellas lo más recomendable es huir de la capital. Municipios como Robledo de Chavela y sus instalaciones de la Nasa se convierten en un lugar fetiche para los amantes de la astronomía. Muy cerca de este municipio se encuentra también la silla de Felipe II, a la que muchos se acercarán para ver las Perseidas sobre el Monasterio de San Lorenzo del Escorial. Otra de las opciones es el Alto del León, donde se puede aprovechar para cenar en el Asado, o un plan distinto sería visitar Buitrago del Lozoya y subir a la muralla, a orillas del río, para observar el espectáculo nocturno. Además, el Parque Nacional de Guadarrama dispone de diferentes miradores distribuidos por el parque y que suelen contar con una orientadora o con un cartel explicativo para conocer los topónimos más significativos del paisaje.

El virus, que utiliza como vector (el “vehículo” para atacar) una garrapata, la Hyalomma marginatum, se cobró la vida de un hombre de 74 años en Ávila. El paciente había participado a finales de julio en una actividad cinegética en la localidad pacense de Helechosa de los Montes, donde sufrió la picadura de una garrapata, lo que hizo sospechar sobre sobre una posible infección transmitida por este ácaro, informe Ep. Pero no es la primera vez que se registran casos en nuestro país. En agosto de 2016, un hombre de 62 años murió también por esta enfermedad. El caso obligó a la Consejería de Sanidad de Madrid a activar un protocolo similar al del ébola al comprobar que una enfermera se contagió al atenderlo en el Hospital Carlos III de Madrid. ¿Por qué, de repente, surgen casos de Crimea-Congo?. Teníamos los ingredientes necesarios para que ocurriera: los animales que actúan como reservorios (garrapata, roedores…), el virus circulando y las condiciones climatológicas necesarias. El contagio de una persona que paseaba por el campo o realizaba una actividad cinegética al recibir la picadura de una garrapata parecía solo una cuestión de mala suerte. Sin embargo, algunos expertos ven razones que van más allá de las casualidades, entre ellas, el cambio climático y el aumento de las temperaturas. «Sabemos por modelos experimentales que algunas garrapatas se vuelven más agresivas y pican más al elevarse la temperatura», señala José Antonio Oteo, jefe del departamento de Enfermedades Infecciosas del Centro de Investigación Biomédica de La Rioja. El cambio climático, de hecho, también puede haber influido en las modificaciones de las rutas realizadas por aves migratorias que también actúan como distribuidoras de vectores. «La hipótesis mejor documentada es que este virus ha entrado recientemente en España a través de garrapatas vehiculadas por aves migratorias, ya que las secuencias genéticas de los virus de las garrapatas de las aves que recogimos en Marruecos, son las mismas que las que encontramos en España y son de estirpe africana». Justo Menéndez, responsable de Enfermedades Tropicales del Hospital HM Sanchinarro y miembro de la plataforma Doctoralia suscribe esta hipótesis. «Lugares donde las temperaturas eran frías y ahora son templadas están haciendo que virus, bacterias o parásitos subsistan en zonas donde antes no era posible». El factor suerte Sin embargo, no se deja de lado el azar. «Este virus está presente en Asia, América, África y Europa. Pese a ello, es difícil contraer la enfermedad ya que de 100 picaduras de garrapatas infectadas, solo el 10 por ciento producen síntomas», señala Menéndez. Pero evitar la aparición de casos es imposible porque acabar con las garrapatas supondría un gran desequilibrio para el ecosistema. La única solución son las vacunas. «Tiene más impacto la globalización que el calentamiento global. España, además, tiene una localización especial en el mundo, clima subtropical y puente entre Europa y África donde pasan inmigrantes, turistas y aves migratorias. Es un corredor de importancia», opina José Antonio Pérez Molina, médico del Centro de Referencia Nacional de Medicina Tropical del Hospital Ramón y Cajal. Estos desplazamientos, en los que también se cuentan los realizados por motivos comerciales, hacen difícil descartar la aparición de enfermedades como el zika. Otra afección que «ha viajado» gracias al movimiento migratorio es el virus del Nilo Occidental. En 1999, provocó un brote en Nueva York y se propagó por Estados Unidos. En España, concretamente en Andalucía, se han confirmado este verano dos casos de Virus del Nilo. No bajar la guardia Mayor atención merece la encefalicitis centroeuropea, transmitida por un virus que tiene como vector una garrapata, igual que en el caso de Crimea-Congo y que afecta al sistema nervioso central. Está presente en Alemania, Austria, o Suiza. Y se dan las condiciones para que aparezca en España. «No hay que bajar la guardia, podrían aparecer nuevas enfermedades pero España tiene una infraestructura sanitaria que impediría una epidemia», defiende Ángel Gil, del Comité técnico español que investiga el Crimea-Congo. Gil recuerda que ya hay otras patologías transmitidas por garrapatas en España. Las que se consideran emergentes y que se han dado en humanos son la Anaplasmosis, la Rickettsia monacensis o Debonel. Esta última, de hecho, la transmite una bacteria «nueva» y descubierta solo en España, concretamente en la Rioja, de ahí su nombre: Rickettsia rioja. Otra enfermedad emergente es la Neoehrlichia mikurensis, que aún no ha provocado casos «pero habrá porque está circulando y lo transmite una garrapata que pica a personas», sentencia Oteo. Nada de esto parece preocupar demasiado a Europa. «Hay mucha distancia entre la percepción del riesgo por la aparición de enfermedades infecciosas y el riesgo real. Tanto la la infra como la sobrevaloración suelen ser muy comunes. Por ejemplo, no consideraría un riesgo para los turistas viajar a España después de estos casos de fiebre hemorrágica. Ni siquiera Turquía, en donde ha habido unos cientos de casos», señala Matthias Niedrig, miembro de la Red Europea para el Diagnóstico de Enfermedades Víricas Importadas (ENIVID, por sus siglas en inglés).

Cerita Misteri Hantu Jeruk Purut
Cerita Misteri Hantu Jeruk Purut
Cerita Misteri Hantu Jeruk Purut - Sebagai ibukota negara kesatuan negara Indonesia, Jakarta tumbuh menjadi sebuah kota yang hiruk pikuk oleh para penghuninya. Jakarta dipenuhi oleh manusia dari berbagai latar belakang budaya dan suku bangsa yang berbeda pula. Kepadatan ibukota Jakarta bahkan sudah menimbulkan masalah yang benar-benar membuat penghuninya merasa kesal. Bahkan perputaran uang terbesar di Indonesia terjadi di kota ini.

Dibalik hiruk pikuknya kota Jakarta, ternyata kota ini menyimpan kisah lain yang tidak dipedulikan oleh kaum metropolis di Jakarta. Di kota Jakarta terdapat beberapa lokasi angker dengan kisahnya masing-masing. Salah satu lokasi yang menyeramkan tersebut adalah Tempat Pemakaman Umum Jeruk Purut, Jakarta Selatan. Berikut beberapa cerita tentang hantu Jeruk Purut ini:

Pastur Kepala Buntung

Di tahun 1986, Supri, penjaga makam di Tempat Pemakaman Umum Jeruk Purut melihat penampakan hantu dengan sosok pastur tanpa kepala yang menenteng kepalanya sendiri. Menurut pengakuan masyarakat sekitar, pastur kepala buntung (julukan yang diberikan oleh masyarakat sekitar) ini mencari makamnya yang terletak di unit Kristen di pemakaman Tanah Kusir Jakarta. Pengalaman Supri ini menjadi kisah yang terkenal di daerah Jakarta. Jika Anda ingin melihat sendiri hantu Jeruk Purut berwujud pastur ini datanglah ke Tempat Pemakaman ini pada malam Jumat dengan jumlah pengunjung ganjil (satu, tiga, lima, dan seterusnya).

Cerita lainnya, ada dua orang pemuda yang pulang dari suatu acara. Kebetulan di jalan pulang mereka harus melewati daerah Jeruk Purut. Salah satu dari pemuda ini meremehkan tentang cerita hantu Jeruk Purut. Ketika melewati daerah Jeruk Purut, tiba-tiba mobil mereka mogok dan lampu mobil menyala dengan sendiri. Ketika mereka memutuskan untuk masuk ke dalam mobil, mereka melihat penampakan hantu pastur kepala buntung. Secara tiba-tiba mobil mereka bisa menyala kembali, namun anehnya tidak bisa di gas. Padahal spedometernya telah menunjuk angka maksimal. Setelah hantu itu menghilang barulah mereka dapat membawa mobil tersebut. Anehnya, mobil itu berjalan dengan sangat pelan. Untuk mencapai rumah mereka, dibutuhkan waktu sampai fajar menjelang.

Sosok pastur kepala buntung adalah sosok hantu paling terkenal di Jakarta. Penasaran dengan foto hantu ini? Sampai saat ini banyak orang yang mengaku memiliki foto hantu pastur kepala buntung, namun tidak satu pun yang dapat di dipastikan bahwa foto tersebut adalah asli.

Kuntilanak Laki-Laki
Ternyata sosok kuntilanak tidak hanya wanita berbaju putih saja. Kuntilanak juga ada dengan sosok laki-laki dan tuyul. Penampakan kuntilanak laki-laki ini dialami oleh Asmadi, penjaga Tempat Pemakaman Umum Jeruk Purut. Ketika sedang berkeliling, Asmadi ditempuk oleh seseorang dari atas pohon melinjo. Ketika menoleh ia melihat sosok kuntilanak laki-laki di atas pohon. Suatu kali Asmadi juga pernah dimintai uang oleh sosok tuyul. Setelah diberi uang, tuyul itu langsung lari ke dalam keramat (rumah pemakaman khas Betawi). Ketika diikuti ke dalam keramat ternyata sosok tuyul itu sudah tidak ada. (Ilmu Warisan Leluhur)

Cerita Mistik Jatuh Cinta Pada Arwah Penasaran
Cerita Mistik Jatuh Cinta Pada Arwah Penasaran - Cinta memang buta. Sampai-sampai tidak tahu jika pasangan yang diajaknya bercinta itu adalah arwah yang mati penasaran. Cerita ini dialami seorang pemuda yang tinggal di Klaten, dia menjalani percintaan dengan seorang gadis yang bertahi lalat di pipi kiri.

Gadis yang sekarang ada dalam bayangannya itu mengaku bernama Riana, tinggal tidak jauh dari rumah Deny yang baru. Cerita ini sendiri dialami ketika Deny bersama keluarganya pindah ke rumah yang baru, jaraknya sekitar 25 km dari arah Klaten.

Karena ada tugas baru di sebuah kecamatan, keluarga besar mereka terpaksa pindah di sebuah desa yang cukup terpencil. Semula Deny merasa kesepian, tidak ada teman yang bisa diajak berbincang. Di lingkungan barunya dia masih merasa asing.

Sampai suatu malam sewaktu datang dari kota, Deny melihat seorang gadis yang tampaknya kemalaman. Dia berdiri sendirian di pinggir jalan, tidak jauh dari desanya. Setelah dipapas dengan sepeda motor yang dikendarainya, gadis itu mengaku berasal dari desa yang sama dengan Deny.

Karena tidak keberatan pulang bersama-sama, mereka berdua akhirnya berboncengan. Sepanjang perjalanan keduanya saling bertanya tentang asal-usul masing-masing, terutama alamat dan rumahnya. Hanya saja, Riana tidak begitu jelas memberikan alamat rumahnya, dia bilang tidak jauh dari rumah Deny.

Sewaktu keduanya berpisah di sebuah gang yang tidak seberapa lebar, dalam batin Deny mengagumi kecantikan Riana. Apalagi, setelah diteliti secara seksama, dia malah terkesima menyaksikan tahi lalat kecil bertengger di pipi kirinya. “Ah, sungguh luar biasa manisnya gadis licah ini,” pikir Deny.
Diam-diam dalam hati Deny menanam harapan cintanya pada Riana. Dia benar-benar telah jatuh cinta ! Hingga suatu malam keduanya bertemu lagi di sebuah poskampling. Kesempatan itu tidak sedikitpun diluangkan Deny untuk dapat mengungkap isi hati Riana. Sampai satu penuturan sulit dipercaya meluncur dari bibir Riana.

Cerita Mistik Jatuh Cinta Pada Arwah Penasaran


“Aku sejak bertemu sebenarnya ingin mengatakan kalau sudah kenal sejak mas Deny datang ke desa ini. Cuma aku enggak berani aja untuk mendekati mas,” tuturnya dengan manja. Penuturan itu sebenarnya membuat Deny bingung, karena merasa belum pernah mengenal Riana. Tapi bagaimana dia bisa mengenalnya lebih dulu?

“Ah, biarin aja. Mungkin dia sudah lama mengidolakan saya,” batin Deny jadi ‘gede rumangsa’. Tak terasa malam semakin larut, Riana buru-buru meminta untuk diantar pulang. Deny sendiri jadi kebingungan sebab belum pernah diberitahu alamat rumahnya. Riana selalu bilang dekat rumah Deny. Tapi sebelah mana ?

“Itu lho yang dekat dengan rumah sebelah mas. Pokoknya disekitar situ. Nanti mas nganternya sampai rumah sebelah saja ya,” ujar Riana.

Tapi Maya hanya tersenyum saja melihat aku kebingungan dengan tingkahnya hari ini, dan yang lebih membingungkan lagi ketika aku sadar ternyata selama ini aku belum pernah tau di mana Maya tinggal. Yang aku tau Maya tinggal 100 meter dari sekolahku, entah mengapa jika aku bertanya dan ingin ke rumahnya, Maya selalu menolak dan langsung mengalihkan pembicaraan. Kalo sudah begitu aku cuma bisa diam dan tak bisa berkata apa-apa lagi.

Suatu hari pamanku datang dan semenjak itu aku tau siapa Maya sebenarnya. Pagi itu paman datang dengan membawa suatu barang yang entah kami sekeluarga tidak mengetahui apa maksud semua itu. Tak berapa lama paman berbincang-bincang dengan ayah dan ibu di teras depan. Entah apa yang dibicarakan dan aku mungkin tak terlalu ambil pusing, sampai tiba-tiba aku dipanggil bik Sumi, katanya aku dipanggil ayah dan ibuku.

Setelah aku mendekat, entah bagaimana tiba-tiba aku melihat ibu sedang menangis dan ayah terlihat pucat sekali, ketika itu aku juga melihat paman memandangku dengan pandangan yang tajam sekali. Semua itu membuat aku semakin bingung saja dan ketika aku bertanya apa yang terjadi, malahan ibu semakin menangis dan menangis, membuat aku semakin tak mengerti. Sampai pamanku akhirnya mengatakan sesuatu yang diluar masuk di akal sehat, “Ron, apakah kamu akhir-akhir ini merasakan hal yang aneh dan menyeramkan ?” ditanya seperti itu aku makin bingung.

“Paman bertanya apa? Tidak, aku tidak pernah merasakan apa yang paman katakana tadi ?” aku lihat paman sedikit pucat dan entah mengapa tiba-tiba paman membaca suatu ayat Al-Quran yang entah surat apa, semua itu membuat aku jadi bertanya-tanya. Setelah selesai paman berkata “Ron, apa kamu kenal dengan gadis yang bernama Maya ?” tersentak aku dibuatnya, mengapa paman kenal dengan Maya dan bagaima paman mengenalnya. Mungkin paman tau apa yang aku pikirkan, dan langsung menjelaskan mengapa paman kenal dengan maya.

Ternyata Maya adalah anak dari pembantu paman yang meninggal 8 tahun yang lalu karena bunuh diri dengan menggantung dirinya sendiri di pohon mangga di depan rumahku. Bagai disambar petir aku menolak mengakuinya, mungkin saja Maya yang paman maksud bukan Maya yang aku cintai selama ini. Tapi setelah paman menyebutkan ciri-cirinya, maka baru aku percaya, memang Maya itu yang telah lama aku cintai dan menjadi pacarku selama ini.

Kemudian paman memberikan aku sebuah tulisan Arab yang entah apa maksudnya dan artinya, tapi karena ibu yang menyuruh aku menerimanya maka aku terima. Entah mengapa aku jadi takut untuk bertemu Maya lagi, dan aku baru sadar dengan tingkah aneh yang dilakukan Maya kemarin malam.
Semenjak aku menyimpan kertas pemberian paman, Maya tak pernah datang dan aku juga tak pernah melihatnya lagi, entah dia sudah menghilang atau takut, sampai suatu hari aku menerima sepucuk surat dengan tidak disertai nama pada amplopnya.

Setelah membaca surat dari maya itu aku tak sadarkan diri, entah aku harus bagaimana apakah aku harus sedih atau senang… aku tak tahu… (cerita kiriman Henny).

造就第315位讲者 周济林

南京大学天文与空间科学学院院长


今年4月16日,NASA发射了一颗巡天卫星,名为TESS(凌日系外行星巡天卫星),它的主要目标是寻找更多的系外行星。

为什么要去寻找太阳系以外的行星?究其原因,还是回到那个至今仍未解开的疑问:人类从哪里来?又将要到哪里去?

著名科幻小说《三体》所描述的就是文明生存的竞争,也是居住地的竞争。书中「三体文明」处于半人马座α星,是距离太阳最近的恒星系统。但由于它是一个三星系统,即由三颗恒星组成,运动并不稳定。

导出图片Mon Aug 06 2018 18_00_22 GMT+0800 (中国标准时间).png

当三颗恒星引力相对于行星不平衡时,就出现了小说中描绘的「乱纪元」世界:要么三个太阳同时出现,要么一个太阳都没有,人们在煎熬中等待「恒纪元」出现,他们向往如地球一般安稳的宜居家园。

类地行星离「宜居」二字还差得很远

为什么我们已经生活在地球这个安定的星球上,却仍然要去寻找适合人类居住的行星?

因为人类不可能永远生活在这个摇篮中,我们这是在为未来做打算。

那么,什么样的行星是宜居的?

第一,类地行星,拥有固体表面。迄今为止我们所发现的行星,归纳起来可分为两类:类木行星和类地行星。如果行星的质量大于10个地球质量,那么它就可以显著地吸收气体,形成类木行星;反之,小于10个地球质量则多半是类地行星,因为它没有机会得到更多的气体。

导出图片Mon Aug 06 2018 18_00_29 GMT+0800 (中国标准时间).png

第二,存在液态水,且位于宜居带上。行星的宜居带必须与主星之间有一个合适的距离,而这个距离的远近取决于主星的大小。主星越小,与宜居带之间的距离就越近,辐射也就越强,人类在这样的星球上是没办法生存的。

我们希望找到一个像太阳这样的恒星,那么位于其宜居带的类地行星就是「下一个地球」。

导出图片Mon Aug 06 2018 18_00_34 GMT+0800 (中国标准时间).png

第三,主星辐射不能太强。地球之所以适合人类生存,是因为它远离太阳,且星球内部有液态核,形成一个磁场,从而保护了我们的生命。这也是人类的幸运之处。

导出图片Mon Aug 06 2018 18_00_40 GMT+0800 (中国标准时间).png

改造火星只需一个阳光棚

相比之下,我们的邻居火星就不是那么幸运了,它虽然也处于太阳的宜居带,但是现在却没有生命。

研究表明,火星以前可能是有生命的,后来由于某种原因,比如受到小行星的碰撞,把它的液态核撞没了。要知道,液核很多是带电的离子,流动起来会产生磁场,没了它,保护大气的磁场也就消失了。所以,火星现在几乎没有大气,也就不适合人类居住了。

有人提出,我们能不能改造火星,使得它适合人类居住?这当然是可以的,但所需要的成本非常大。关于改造的方法,我想最多有两种:

  • 小改造:搞个阳光棚,里面种点花花草草,这样人在那里至少可以生存了。

  • 大改造:搞个液态核,让它有磁场保护,这个难度就太大了。

导出图片Mon Aug 06 2018 18_00_46 GMT+0800 (中国标准时间).png

当然,仍然有人会去尝试,比如马斯克的「火星移民计划」。我们不清楚这个计划要付出多少代价,但至少他已经算出了每个人去火星的成本,甚至连单程票价都出来了。如果真的可以实现,我们将来最好是买往返票,这趟旅程也许会很寂寞。

系外行星是怎样被发现的?

经过人类的不懈努力,终于在1995年发现了第一颗太阳系以外的行星,这归功于瑞士的两位科学家。那么如何探测行星呢?

  • 视向速度法

大家都知道行星是很暗的,根本看不见,怎么办呢?我们可以去看恒星。因为行星跟恒星绕着公共质心在转,所以我们观测的那个恒星,它其实有个像身份证一样的东西——光谱。光谱有很多谱线,如果这个恒星不动,谱线是固定在某个地方的;一旦恒星开始运动,那这个谱线也会移动。

640 (2).gif

就像高铁,它离开我们时声音会变缓,而向我们运动过来的时候,声音就比较尖锐,这就是多普勒效应。利用这个原理,我们就可以反推出恒星运动的原因,是不是因为它受某颗行星的影响。于是,第一个太阳系外行星就是这样被探测出来的,下面这张就是它的轨道周期示意图。

导出图片Mon Aug 06 2018 18_01_00 GMT+0800 (中国标准时间).png

  • 凌星法(transit)

凌星法是目前被广泛应用的系外行星观测方法。它的原理很简单,当行星正好从你的视线与恒星之间经过时,你认真观察恒星,就会发现它的光度发生变化,而且这个变化是周期性的。当然,这个变化的大小取决于行星的大小。例如,木星的大小是太阳的十分之一,所以它这个光度的变化就是百分之一。

640 (3).gif

小朋友们听到这个,可能会想:今天晚上我去看星星,盯着看它能不能掉下来,如果掉下来就发现了一个行星。要知道,这个通常肉眼是分辨不出来的,要通过卫星去探测。

发现地球的「表哥」有什么意义?

TESS、James Webb、开普勒等,科学界发射的望远镜几乎有一半都在寻找系外行星。在这里,要重点说下开普勒太空望远镜,在它短暂的「寿命」中,发现了超过三千个系外行星,这是人类文明一个重大的进步。

导出图片Mon Aug 06 2018 18_01_12 GMT+0800 (中国标准时间).png

开普勒发现的行星中,有一个跟地球非常相近,可以说是地球的「表哥」,被命名为开普勒452B。它的主星也很像太阳,但是遗憾的是它离我们太远了——1400光年。「移民」到这个星球的旅程很可能是单程的,非常危险。但无论如何,我们至少看到了希望,远的已经找到了,近的还会远吗?

导出图片Mon Aug 06 2018 18_01_43 GMT+0800 (中国标准时间).png

那么,迄今为止,人类找到了多少个类地行星?

如果以半径或者质量这个标准来看,大概有700到800颗。但如果我们除去远距离的那些,只统计一百个秒差距,也就是300光年以内的类地行星,就只有30颗。把距离再放近一点,60光年以内,这在天文上已经很近了,这样就只剩下10颗。

导出图片Mon Aug 06 2018 18_01_49 GMT+0800 (中国标准时间).png

这10颗行星大部分都来自于一个叫trappist-1的系统,我们中国称之为葫芦娃系统。它的主星是一颗矮星,比太阳小多了,但是它带领着一串类地行星。遗憾的是,它们离我们依然很远。真正离我们近的,在10个秒差距(约30光年)以内类似太阳这样的恒星系,还没有找到宜居带行星。当然,我们有义务继续寻找。

中国的巡天之路

前面提到了很多国外的空间项目,那么我们中国有没有自己的巡天卫星呢?

我和同事们也都提出了一些项目,比如为宜居的类地行星「拍照」,我在前面介绍过的类地行星都是没有成像的,我们希望通过光干涉将行星和恒星分开来再去成像,先把它的图片拍出来。

但是大家也知道,空间项目的周期很长,可能从你提出计划到卫星上天,花上十年的时间已经很幸运了。那么,在此之前我们总要做些事情。

导出图片Mon Aug 06 2018 18_01_55 GMT+0800 (中国标准时间).png

我们课题组参与了南极的一个巡天项目。那里冰天雪地,气候寒冷干燥,条件非常艰苦,但这片大陆也拥有天文学家最喜欢的连续42天的极夜。

由于冬季气温很低,最低可达到零下83摄氏度,人在那里是没办法过冬的。所以,我们会先在头一年的夏天派科考队过去,把望远镜放置并调试好后离开,让它工作一年,第二年夏天再去把数据「扛」回来,或者通过卫星来传输。

导出图片Mon Aug 06 2018 18_02_01 GMT+0800 (中国标准时间).png

通过这样的观测模式,我们这个课题组利用图中这几个望远镜,在2014年发现了200余颗高置信度的系外行星候选体,成为世界上第一个在南极天区发现系外行星的科考团队。2017年,我们又在南极发现了最大批量的系外行星。

除此之外,我们也在号称「世界第三极」的西藏也设立了天文台。位于海拔5100米的西藏阿里天文台已经建成了一半,其中有一个平台,我们称之为平行顶。在这里将放置五个小望远镜,进行系外行星的搜寻,期待能收获好的结果。

导出图片Mon Aug 06 2018 18_02_13 GMT+0800 (中国标准时间).png

最后,回到一开始提到的问题:人类为什么要探索宇宙?

这个问题答案很多,科研方向不同,回答自然也不同。从我的角度看,我们探索宇宙的目标,是寻找另外一个宜居的类地行星,寻找我们另外的家园。当然,这件事不是一蹴而就的,可能需要几代人的努力。

          Rescatan a once niños entrenados con armas por un imán en EE.UU.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Hakima Ramzi denunció el pasado mes de diciembre la desaparición de su hijo Abdul-Ghani en el estado de Georgia. Según explicó a las autoridades, su padre lo había llevado al parque diez días antes, pero no habían regresado. Ramzi le dijo a la policía que su hijo de tres años padecía una enfermedad encefalopática, sufría ataques, era incapaz de caminar y requería medicación. Días después de la desaparición, el hijo y su padre se vieron envueltos en un accidente de coche en Alabama en compañía de otros cinco niños y dos adultos. El grupo explicó a la policía que iban camino de un campamento en Nuevo México. La policía encontró a once niños, de entre uno y quince años, en condiciones miserables y con desnutrición en el supuesto campamento. Las autoridades han apuntado que los niños estaban siendo entrenados para cometer futuros actos violentos. Al menos uno de ellos, para perpetrar un tiroteo masivo en una escuela. El Sheriff del Condado de Taos, Jerry Hogrefe, dijo que el grupo estaba compuesto por «extremistas de creencias musulmanas», pero no aportó más información. Junto a ellos, cinco adultos, tres mujeres y dos hombres. Entre ellos, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, padre de Abdul-Ghani que, sin embargo, no forma parte del grupo de niños rescatados que están ahora bajo custodia. Las autoridades han encontrado restos de un menor en el recinto, que sospechan son los del pequeño de tres años. El lugar en el que les han encontrado carecía de las más mínimas condiciones de habitabilidad, sin agua, electricidad ni alcantarillado. El olor resultaba insoportable y había basura por todas partes. El improvisado «campamento» contaba con un remolque parcialmente enterrado. «Parecían refugiados del tercer mundo», explicó asombrado Hogrefe. Según informó su oficina, el refugio estaba cubierto de plástico y estaba rodeado por tierra y neumáticos viejos que habían apilado a su alrededor. Los investigadores también han encontrado un estrecho túnel excavado bajo tierra. Y armas, tantas como cuatro pistolas, un rifle de estilo militar y una gran cantidad de munición. Las autoridades han apuntado que los niños estaban siendo entrenados para cometer futuros actos violentos. Al menos uno de ellos, para perpetrar un tiroteo masivo en una escuela. Hogrefe dijo que el grupo estaba compuesto por «extremistas de creencias musulmanas», pero no aportó más información al respecto. El padre de Siraj Ibn Wahhaj ejerce de imán en una mezquita en Brooklyn, Nueva York, y dos de las tres mujeres del grupo eran hermanas del supuesto secuestrador. Todos los adultos permanecen detenidos y el juez les ha denegado la libertad bajo fianza.

          NASA Braves The Heat To Get Up Close And Personal With Our Sun      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Early Saturday morning, if all goes as planned, 91-year-old Eugene Parker will watch a NASA spacecraft named after him blast off on an unprecedented mission to study the sun. "It's my first rocket launch, so that will be very interesting," says Parker, a retired astrophysicist who lives in Chicago. NASA has never named a spacecraft after a living person before. But Parker's colleagues say it's appropriate that this one bears his name. The Parker Solar Probe will get up-close-and-personal with the fiery sun, closer than any spacecraft ever, and Parker is almost a God-like figure among those who study this special star. "In our field, he's definitely a celebrity," says Angela Olinto, an astrophysicist at the University of Chicago , where Parker worked for decades. "Most of science is done by a lot of small steps by a lot of different people. He is one of those few people that we know that have made big breakthroughs a few times." His first came in 1958, when Parker predicted that the sun

COSMOS Survey

This image shows data from a massive observing campaign that includes NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory. These Chandra data have provided strong evidence for the existence of so-called intermediate-mass black holes (IMBHs). Combined with a separate study also using Chandra data, these results may allow astronomers to better understand how the very largest black holes in the early Universe formed, as described in our latest press release.

The COSMOS ("cosmic evolution survey") Legacy Survey has assembled data from some of the world's most powerful telescopes spanning the electromagnetic spectrum. This image contains Chandra data from this survey, equivalent to about 4.6 million seconds of observing time. The colors in this image represent different levels of X-ray energy detected by Chandra. Here the lowest-energy X-rays are red, the medium band is green, and the highest-energy X-rays observed by Chandra are blue. Most of the colored dots in this image are black holes. Data from the Spitzer Space Telescope are shown in grey. The inset shows an artist's impression of a growing black hole in the center of a galaxy. A disk of material surrounding the black hole and a jet of outflowing material are also depicted.

Two new separate studies using the Chandra COSMOS-Legacy survey data and other Chandra data have independently collected samples of IMBHs, an elusive category of black holes in between stellar mass black holes and the supermassive black holes found in the central regions of massive galaxies.

One team of researchers identified 40 growing black holes in dwarf galaxies. Twelve of them are located at distances more than five billion light years from Earth and the most distant is 10.9 billion light years away, the most distant growing black hole in a dwarf galaxy ever seen. Most of these sources are likely IMBHs with masses that are about 10,000 to 100,000 times that of the Sun.

A second team found a separate, important sample of possible IMBHs in galaxies that are closer to Earth. In this sample, the most distant IMBH candidate is about 2.8 billion light years from Earth and about 90% of the IMBH candidates they discovered are no more than 1.3 billion light years away.

They detected 305 galaxies in their survey with black hole masses less than 300,000 solar masses. Observations with Chandra and with ESA's XMM-Newton of a small part of this sample show that about half of the 305 IMBH candidates are likely to be valid IMBHs. The masses for the ten sources detected with X-ray observations were determined to be between 40,000 and 300,000 times the mass of the Sun.

IMBHs may be able to explain how the very biggest black holes, the supermassive ones, were able to form so quickly after the Big Bang. One leading explanation is that supermassive black holes grow over time from smaller black holes "seeds" containing about a hundred times the Sun's mass. Some of these seeds should merge to form IMBHs. Another explanation is that they form very quickly from the collapse of a giant cloud of gas with a mass equal to hundreds of thousands of times that of the Sun. There is yet to be a consensus among astronomers on the role IMBHs may play.

A paper describing the COSMOS-Legacy result by Mar Mezcua (Institute for Space Sciences, Spain) and colleagues was published in the August issue of the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society and is available online. The paper by Igor Chilingarian (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics) on the closer IMBH sample is being published in the August 10th issue of The Astrophysical Journal and is available online.

          Asian Games 2018: Timnas Taiwan Kerasan di Bekasi      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Timnas Taiwan siap unjuk gigi saat menjalani persaingan Grup A cabang olahraga sepak bola Asian Games 2018. Pasalnya, mereka kerasan dengan suasana Kota Bekasi, Jawa Barat. 

Taiwan bakal melakoni tiga partai Grup A cabang olahraga sepak bola Asian Games di Stadion Patriot Chandrabaga.

"Saya lihat Bekasi kota yang bagus. Warganya juga ramah dan makanannya sangat enak," kata juru bicara Timnas Taiwan, Brian Lin, di lokasi penginapan Hotel Harris Summarecon Bekasi.

Lee Hsiang-wei dan kawan-kawan sempat dilanda kelelahan akibat perjalanan jauh ketika tiba di Kota Bekasi, Selasa (7/8/2018). Namun, situasi di Kota Bekasi membuat pemain nyaman beristirahat.

Brian mengaku persiapan Taiwan menghadapi Timnas Indonesia telah sepenuhnya matang jelang pertemuan keduanya pada Minggu (12/8/2018). Selain tuan rumah, Taiwan juga menghadapi Palestina, Hong Kong, dan Laos pada persaingan Grup A sepak bola Asian Games 2018.

"Kemarin, Rabu (8/8/2018), kami melakukan latihan (di Stadion ABC Senayan, Jakarta). Tim tampak sudah benar-benar siap menghadapi lawan," katanya.

Kendala di Latihan

Dikatakan Brian, timnya sempat terkendala dengan ketiadaan bola dan air minum saat menjalani sesi latihan di Stadion ABC.

"Bagimana kami mau berlatih kalau bola dan air minumnya tidak ada. Namun pemain tidak terlalu mempersoalkan itu," katanya.

Klarifikasi Relawan

Secara terpisah, relawan Asian Games 2018 Devita memberikan klarifikasinya atas situasi tersebut.

"Memang bola dan air minum baru disediakan panitia pada Kamis (9/8/2018) di Stadion ABC. Kalau yang latihannya berlangsung pada Rabu belum dipersiapkan," katanya, dilansir Antara.

Degan Kupas, Kuliner Unik Depan Candi Penataran
Jam menunjukkan pukul 10 ketika aku bosan menunggu seseorang yang mau datang ke rumah ambil pesenan cincin perak untuk nikahannya. Sembari menunggu aku bertanya ke Pak Hary yang biasanya punya agenda main hampir setiap hari, jebule hari itu belum ada agenda sama sekali mau kemana. Padahal aku pengen mlipir piknik tipis-tipis yang dekat-dekat saja. Iseng aja aku tawarin nyobain degan unik di depan candi penataran tanpa pikir lama kami pun bersiap masing-masing dan janjian ketemu di Ruang Tuang.

Tidak lama setelah bersiap-siap, pelanggan yang ambil pesenan cincin perak untuk nikahan datang untuk mengambil pesanannya. Tidak lama setelah basa-basi akhirnya berpamitan dan aku pun bergegas menuju ruang tuang untuk ketemu dan menuju ke candi penataran.

Hanya ada satu penjual degan di depan candi penataran, jadi enggak perlu bingung mencari di sebelah mana karena cuma ada satu penjual degan. Pasnya di mana? Tepat berada di depan candi penataran.

Tidak butuh waktu lama untuk kami memesan empat buah degan kupas. Karena penasaran dengan prosesnya, berikut video pengupasan degan unik yang terinspirasi dari video-video youtube penjual  di Thailand.

Mas Tri, Penjual Degan Kupas
Nama penjual degan kupas ini adalah Mas Tri, setelah melihat video-video youtube ada inisiatif mencoba karena persaingan usaha penjual es degan yang cukup ketat. Menyajikan degan dengan cara baru bisa memenangkan persaingan karena enggak semua orang bisa seperti ini. Alhasil setelah melakukan riset yang cukup lama dan banyak akhirnya Mas Tri berhasil merealisasikan ide untuk menyajikan degan kupas di Blitar. Setauku di Blitar memang belum ada selain di Candi Penataran ini.

Bisa jadi peluang bisnis baru ini sebenarnya, menjual atraksi pada pelanggan. Seperti yang diilakukan oleh kedai-kedai kopi manual brew yang open bar. Membuat atraksi menjadi nilai lebih di barang dagangannya.
Pengunjung Candi Penataran mencoba Degan Kupas
Penyajian satu porsi degan ini butuh waktu kurang dari 5 menit. Sehingga tidak terlalu lama menungg. Tapi kalau yang beli banyak ya lumayan nunggunya, meskipun begitu menunggu dengan pemandangan atraksi yang unik tidak akan membosankan.

Degan yang dijual memang bukan degan ijo, karena ada beberapa jenis degan yang bisa dikupas seperti masnya ini ada yang enggak. Selain itu apabila sudah terlalu tua, degan tidak bisa dikupas model gini. Sehingga yang dijual kebanyakan memang degan yang benar-benar muda dan enak buat dimakan.

Degan disajikan tanpa es dan gula pada sebuah wadah plastik. Daging dengan utuh disajikan dengan sedotan untuk meminum airnya. Setelah air degan habis, kita bisa makan buahnya yang lembut dengan rasa yang manis. Sambil memandang candi penataran yang tampak dari tempat mas penjual degan.

Tidak lama setelah itu datang rombongan keluarga yang didominasi dengan ibuk-ibuk mencoba dan seperti yang sudah aku duga sebelumnya. Heboh semua :D. Oh iya, harga seporsi degan kupas ini adalah Rp. 10.000, untuk degan kecil seperti fotoku paling atas aku kurang tahu harganya karena dikasih gratisan sama masnya :D.

          NASA is about to 'touch' a star for the first time — here are the hellish conditions the Parker Solar Probe must survive      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

  • NASA's Parker Solar Probe is scheduled to launch Saturday, August 11 around 3:33 a.m. EDT.
  • To "touch" the sun and study its weather, the $1.5-billion mission must survive hellish conditions.
  • Temperatures will reach a searing 2,500 degrees when the spacecraft zooms through the star's atmosphere at 430,000 mph.
  • Once the probe runs out of fuel, pretty much everything but its carbon heat shield will be destroyed.

Touching a star isn't easy. The sun is an enormous, searing-hot orb of plasma that generates a chaos of magnetic fields and can unleash deadly blasts of particles at a moment's notice.

But that is precisely what NASA plans to do — 24 times or more — with its car-size Parker Solar Probe (PSP). The goal of the $1.5-billion mission is to edge within 4 million miles of the sun, which is close enough to study the star's mysterious atmosphere, solar wind, and other properties.

Information gathered by the probe may help space weather forecasters better predict violent solar outbursts that can overwhelm electrical grids, harm satellites, disrupt electronics, and possibly lead to trillions of dollars' worth of damage.

The spacecraft is slated to launch from the Florida coast on Saturday at 3:33 a.m. EDT, should weather cooperate, though NASA has through August 23 to fire off its probe. PSP will reach the sun a few months after launch.

Here are some of the brutal conditions and tremendous challenges NASA's probe will have to survive to pull off its unprecedented mission.

The tricky process of touching a star

The first hurdle PSP needs to clear is Earth itself.

To make the trip, the probe will ride atop a Delta 4 Heavy rocket, which is one of the most powerful operational launch vehicles on Earth (though not quite as powerful as SpaceX's new Falcon Heavy system).

NASA chose the rocket because it's surprisingly hard to get to the sun, which is 93 million miles away.

Earth orbits the sun at a speed of 67,000 mph, and so does anything launched off of the planet. To fall toward the sun, PSP will have to slow down by 53,000 mph, NASA said in a video about its mission.

Three different rocket stages (one firing after the other runs out of fuel) in the Delta 4 Heavy will help considerably with boosting PSP toward that goal, but it's not enough to repeatedly fly the probe close to the sun.

Instead, the rocket will shoot the probe on a path toward Venus, a planet it will fly past seven times over six years. The world's strong gravitational field will help gradually absorb PSP's "sideways motion" imparted by Earth and direct it closer and closer to the sun.

The consequence of this orbital dance is that PSP will fall toward the sun faster and faster after each pass. On its first orbit of the sun in November 2018, the probe will be some 15.4 million miles from the sun. About 21 orbits later, in December 2024, it will sneak within 4 million miles of the sun, traveling at a speed of nearly 430,000 mph relative to the star.

Achieving such a velocity would make PSP the fastest a human object in space. It's nearly 120 miles per second — fast enough to fly from New York to Tokyo in less than a minute — and 3.3 times as fast as NASA's Juno spacecraft, which zips past Jupiter at speeds of 130,000 mph.

How to fly through hell and back

During its journey, PSP must withstand sunlight 3,000 times more powerful than occurs at Earth. Outside the spacecraft, in the outer fringes of the sun's corona or atmosphere, temperatures may reach 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit — hot enough to liquify steel.

The probe also must contend with a "solar wind" of charged, high-energy particles that can mess with electronics.

The key to protecting the probe, as well as its sensors for measuring the sun's magnetic fields and solar wind, is a special heat shield called the Thermal Protection System.

Made of 4.5 inches of carbon foam sandwiched between two sheets of carbon composites, the eight-feet-wide shield will absorb and deflect solar energy that might otherwise fry the probe. A water cooling system will also help prevent the spacecraft's solar panels from roasting and keep the spacecraft a cozy 85 deg F.

PSP's mission is to crack two 60-year-old mysteries: why the sun has a solar wind at all, and how the corona — the star's outer atmosphere — can heat up to millions of degrees. Both factors are key to understanding what leads to potentially devastating solar storms.

"That defies the laws of nature. It's like water rolling uphill," Nicola Fox, a solar physicist at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, said during a NASA briefing in 2017.

"Until you actually go there and touch the sun, you can't answer these questions," said Fox, who's a project scientist for the new mission.

You can watch the Parker Solar Probe launch toward the sun on Saturday, August 11, around 3 a.m. EDT via NASA TV.

The probe's mission will end many years from now, after it runs out of the propellant it needs to keep its heat shield pointed at the sun. When that happens, the star's blistering heat will burn up "90% of the spacecraft," science writer Shannon Stirone said on Twitter — but not the heat shield itself.

"The heat shield will then orbit the sun for millions of years," she said.

NOW WATCH: The White House has a plan in case a solar storm wipes out our technology


          NASA is flying a $1.5 billion spacecraft into the sun — here's why      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

NASA will soon launch its Parker Solar Probe on a mission that will take it closer to the sun than any spacecraft in history. The probe will fly straight into the sun's outer atmosphere, called the corona, where violent storms erupt that could destroy our tech-driven way of life. If we want to avoid living like people did back in the Stone Age, we'll need Parker Solar Probe's data. Following is a transcript of the video.

NASA is about to go where no one has gone before. The Sun. That’s right. NASA is flying a 1.5 billion-dollar spacecraft into the hottest, most violent object in our solar system. All in the name of science.

NASA’s unmanned Parker Solar Probe will come to within 3.83 million miles of the solar surface. Now, that might not sound very close but it’s about SEVEN TIMES closer than any spacecraft has gone before. And puts the probe smack inside one of the sun’s most treacherous layers:  The corona. The outermost layer of the Sun.

Here, the temperatures fluctuate from 1 to 5 million degrees FahrenheitAnd solar flares exist that are so big they could swallow our planet whole. So, why are we going here, again? It turns out, the sun poses a major threat to our modern way of life. Powerful magnetic fields form near the sun’s surface. Where they sometimes spark violent eruptions called coronal mass ejections.

These ejections fire a surge of highly-charged particles into space that will fry any electronic circuits on impact. That includes circuits inside our satellites that control cell service, the internet, GPS, the stock exchange, and much more.

In 2014, for example, astrophysicist Daniel N. Baker explained what may happen if one of these powerful storms hit Earth directly, explaining that it could:

“cause widespread power blackouts, disabling everything that plugs into a wall socket. Most people wouldn’t even be able to flush their toilet because urban water supplies largely rely on electric pumps.”

Such a strike could cost an estimated $2 trillion in damage — 10 times more than Hurricane Katrina. Now luckily, space is a big place, which makes Earth a relatively small and tricky target. In fact, the last time a powerful storm like this struck our planet was more than 150 years ago, back in 1859. But the risk is there. And NASA predicts there’s a 12% chance we’ll get hit within the next decade.

That’s where Parker Solar Probe comes in. The probe can’t prevent an ejection from happening. But it can study the corona so that we may better understand the warning signs of an impending storm. And with enough notice, we may be able to protect our satellites from harm.

In addition to spying on the sun, Parker Solar Probe has another very important job: Don’t. Melt.

To that end, NASA has prepped the probe with four highly-tuned sensors and an impressive heat shield that will protect the probe’s instruments. The sensors are there to make sure the shield stays directed at the sun at all times. The mission will involve not one, or two, but 24 dives into the sun. Which are scheduled to take place up through the year 2025.

          We're getting the first details of Trump's proposed 'Space Force,' which would be the first new military branch in over half a century      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Mike Pence

  • Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday outlined the Trump administration's plan for establishing a "Space Force," an entirely new military branch that would defend US assets in space.
  • There's a great deal of skepticism surrounding President Donald Trump's desire for a Space Force, with many in Washington questioning whether it's necessary and would be worth the cost and additional bureaucracy.
  • The biggest obstacle to the creation of a Space Force is Congress, as the establishment of a new branch of the US military requires congressional approval. 

Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday outlined the Trump administration's plan for establishing a "Space Force," an entirely new military branch that would defend US assets in space.

"The time has come to establish the United States Space Force," Pence said at the Pentagon.

"Our administration will soon take action to implement these recommendations with the objective of establishing the United States Department of the Space Force by the year 2020," Pence added.

Pence's speech was the latest attempt to offer a clear outline for a proposal that has faced legislative pushback from both parties and comes as the administration is mired in other controversies.

The vice president said the Space Force would have four main components, including a Space Development Agency "to develop and field space capabilities at speed and scale," and a Space Operations Force, made up of officials who would provide expertise during crisis and conflict.

Pence said the Pentagon would also "create the governance, services, and support functions of the Space Force," which would involve creating a legislative proposal for Congress.

Finally, the Pentagon would also establish a US Space Command to be led by a four-star general or flag officer, he said.

President Donald Trump in June announced he was instructing the Pentagon to take steps to establish "a Space Force as the sixth branch of the armed forces," an effort that didn't appear to sway Congress or the Pentagon.

The last time a new branch of the military was established was in 1947, when the Army Air Corps was disbanded and the US Air Force was established.

There's a great deal of skepticism surrounding Trump's desire for a Space Force, with many defense experts and policymakers questioning whether it's necessary and would be worth the cost. Some objections to the creation of a Space Force arise from concerns that it would strip resources from existing military branches already pursuing these missions, especially the Air Force.

The biggest obstacle to the creation of a Space Force is Congress, as the establishment of a new branch of the US military requires congressional approval.

That said, Congress doesn't appear to share Trump's and Pence's enthusiasm for a Space Force. In November, for example, lawmakers shot down a proposal to establish such a force.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has also seemed apprehensive about the idea. In a memo he sent to Republican Sen. John McCain last year, he said he opposed "the creation of a new military service and additional organizational layers at a time when we are focused on reducing overhead and integrating joint warfighting functions."

More recently, Mattis expressed support for establishing a new combatant command for space. And Pence on Thursday said part of the plan for the Space Force involved setting up a US Space Command. That would be somewhat bizarre for US military structure, with some noting it would be akin to having a US Army Command, which functions as a command of operational forces, and a US Army.

The former NASA astronaut Mark Kelly said on Thursday of a Space Force: "The only person that I've heard say this is a fantastic idea is the commander in chief, the president of the United States. Everybody else says it's redundant, it's wasteful. We don't have the need out there right now."
