          Die WHO warnt, dass sich eine der schlimmsten Seuchen der Menschheit wieder ausbreiten könnte      Cache   Translate Page      

Das Bakterium, das für die Pest verantwortlich ist

25 Millionen Menschen in Europa wurden zwischen 1346 und 1353 ausgelöscht. Die höchst ansteckende Krankheit, die für die größte europäische Pandemie der Menschheit verantwortlich ist, könnte sich nun erneut ausbreiten: der Schwarze Tod.

Zur Regenzeit bricht auf Madagaskar die Pest in einigen Landesteilen immer wieder aus. Doch dieses Jahr hat die Verbreitung der Infektionskrankheit ungeahnte Ausmaße angenommen.

Pestausbruch in Madagaskar 2017 besonders schlimm

Seit August dieses Jahres breitet sich die Pest nun erneut auf Madagaskar aus. Überall, wo viele Menschen leben, ist das Ansteckungs-Risiko besonders hoch — inzwischen hat die Seuche sogar die Hauptstadt Antananarivo erreicht. Auch Orte, die bislang nicht als Risikogebiet galten, sind betroffen. 

Bis zum 30. September sollen 131 Infizierte gemeldet worden sein, wie die Weltgesundheitsorganisation (WHO) in einem Bericht schreibt. Zehn Städte sollen bereits Fälle von Lungenpest gemeldet haben. 

Übertragen werden die Bakterien durch kleine Säugetiere, zum Beispiel Ratten, und durch Mücken, Flöhe und andere Insekten. Symptome der Lungenpest sind Fieber, Schüttelfrost, Kopfweh, Gliederschmerzen und Übelkeit. Die Lymphknoten entzünden sich schmerzhaft und schwellen an, und die Pestbeulen färben sich aufgrund von inneren Blutungen dunkelblau und schwarz — daher der Name „Schwarzer Tod“. 

Pest könnte sich über Madagaskar hinaus ausbreiten

Nach Angaben der Weltgesundheitsorganisation (WHO) könnte sich der Erreger über die Insel hinaus ausbreiten. Grund dafür seien die zahlreichen Flugverbindungen, wie der WHO-Sprecher Christian Lindmeier erklärte. 

Die Gefahr sei dennoch nur „mäßig hoch“. Deswegen hat die WHO noch keine Reisewarnung ausgesprochen. Stattdessen führt die Organisation auf ihrer Webseite Sicherheitsmaßnahmen auf, die Reisende und Anwohner befolgen sollten.

„Reisende sollten den Kontakt mit toten Tieren, infizierten Stoffen und Materialien vermeiden und engen Kontakt mit Patienten mit Lungenpest vermeiden. Durch abweisende Produkte wie Mückenspray können sich Reisende vor Flohbissen und anderen Insekten schützen.“

          Somalia: Security Council Adopts Resolution 2442 (2018), Authorizing 12-Month Extension for International Naval Forces Fighting Piracy off Somali Coast      Cache   Translate Page

Country: Somalia

SC/13566
6 NOVEMBER 2018
SECURITY COUNCIL
8391ST MEETING (AM)

The Security Council, acting by consensus today, decided to renew for 12 months authorizations allowing international naval forces to join in the fight against piracy in the waters off the coast of Somalia.

Adopting resolution 2442 (2018) under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter, the 15-member Council deplored all acts of piracy and armed robbery at sea off the Somali coast. While noting improvements in Somalia, it nevertheless recognized that piracy exacerbates instability in the country and stressed the need for a comprehensive, international response that also works to tackle the underlying causes of the phenomenon.

By the terms of the text, the Council encouraged the Parliament of Somalia to approve a draft coast guard law and urged the Somali authorities to continue efforts towards passing a comprehensive set of anti-piracy and maritime laws without further delay. It also called upon the authorities to make all efforts to bring to justice those who are using Somali territory to plan, facilitate or undertake criminal acts of piracy and armed robbery at sea, while calling upon Member States to assist Somalia ‑ at the request of Somali authorities and with notification to the Secretary-General ‑ to strengthen its maritime capacity.

Welcoming the initiative of the Seychelles to establish a court for piracy and maritime crime and the successful prosecution of piracy cases by that entity, the Council also recognized the need for States, international and regional organizations and other appropriate partners to share information for anti-piracy law enforcement purposes. In addition, it noted the need for those partners to keep under review the possibility of applying targeted sanctions against individuals or entities that plan, organize, facilitate, or illicitly finance or profit from piracy operations if they meet the listing criteria set out in paragraph 43 of resolution 2093 (2013). The Council also called upon all States to cooperate fully with the Somalia and Eritrea Monitoring Group.

By other terms of the resolution, the Council renewed its call upon States and regional organizations that are able to do so to join the fight against piracy and armed robbery off the coast of Somalia by deploying naval vessels, arms and military aircraft; providing basing and logistical support for counter-piracy forces; and seizing and disposing of boats, vessels, arms and other related equipment used in the commission of piracy-related crimes. It further encouraged the Government of Somalia to accede to the United Nations Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime and urged all States to take appropriate actions under their domestic laws to prevent the illicit financing of piracy acts and the laundering of its proceeds.

The meeting began at 10:05 a.m. and ended at 10:07 a.m.

Resolution

The full text of resolution 2442 (2018) reads as follows:

“The Security Council,

“Welcoming the report of the Secretary-General (S/2018/903), as requested by resolution 2383 (2017), on the implementation of that resolution and on the situation with respect to piracy and armed robbery at sea off the coast of Somalia,

“Reaffirming its respect for the sovereignty, territorial integrity, political independence, and unity of Somalia, including Somalia’s sovereign rights in accordance with international law, with respect to offshore natural resources, including fisheries,

“Noting that the joint counter-piracy efforts of States, regions, organizations, the maritime industry, the private sector, think tanks, and civil society have resulted in a steady decline in pirate attacks as well as hijackings since 2011, with no successful ship hijackings reported off the coast of Somalia since March 2017 however, recognizing the ongoing threat that resurgent piracy and armed robbery at sea poses to the prompt, safe, and effective delivery of humanitarian aid to Somalia and the region, to the safety of seafarers and other persons, to international navigation and the safety of commercial maritime routes, and to other ships, including fishing vessels operating in conformity with international law, commending countries that have deployed naval forces in the Gulf of Aden and the Somali Basin to dissuade piracy networks from carrying out acts of piracy,

          Some Very Unique Guitars from 2017 and 2018      Cache   Translate Page      
A lot of Stratocasters
With all the Strats, Teles, Les Pauls and Martin dreadnought versions out there, you might think we may never see any new and original guitars any more. But buck up lil' camper. There are a few designers that have come up with some new, and somewhat off-the-wall guitars.

2018 Fender
Meteora


You may have come late to the party for this guitar, but Fender’s Custom Shop recently came out with The Meteora. It is what happened when a Telecaster and a Jazzmaster got together. The body shape is based on a Jazzmaster with an exaggerated offset. The neck is also based on a 1968 maple Jazzmaster with block inlays with 22 frets. Though the pickguard is definitely a Jazzmaster shape, the rest of the guitar is pure Telecaster.



Fender Meteora
The bridge pickup on the flat stainless steel plate is right off a Tele, and the neck features a Custom Shop Twisted Tele pickup, which has Alnico 5 magnets that are slightly taller, and wound with 42 gauge wire, instead of the 43 gauge found on most Tele neck pickups. The controls are the same as on a Telecaster, but you are looking at a most unique instrument.

It was a limited run, so new Fender Meteoras are scarce.

St. Vincent
St. Vincent is the stage name of Anne Erin Clark. She is a pretty girl with a very nice voice. I am impressed that she studied music at Berklee College before venturing on a career as a singer-songwriter-guitarist. She spent some time in Sufjan Stevens touring band, before embarking on a solo career.

Music Man Guitars thought enough of her to design a very unique guitar called The St. Vincent. It is a beautiful instrument with one of the most unusual shapes that I have ever seen.

Music Man
St. Vincent
The body is made of African mahogany. The neck is made of “roasted maple”, unless you purchase the black model, which features a maple neck. The fretboard is rosewood, with inlays designed by St. Vincent. The neck features a hand rubbed gun stock oil and wax finish.

The headstock is the short style with 4 plus 2 tuners, typical of Ernie Ball Music Man guitars. The tuners are Schaller M6 locking style with pearl buttons. The guitar features 3 DiMarzio mini humbucking pickups. It also features a Music Man Modern tremolo and six adjustable bridge/saddles. The volume and tone controls have triangular plastic knobs.

Music Man St. Vincent Guitars

The St. Vincent is available in blue with a white pickguard, Polaris white, Matte black with a black pickguard, or tobacco burst with a white pickguard.


Pagelli Guitars are unique creations by builders Claudio and Claudia Pagelli. This couple builds acoustic guitar, electric guitars, and basses using some of the wildest designs you have ever seen.

Pagelli Kill Bill



For the 2018 NAMM Convention they created the “Kill Bill” guitar for ZZ Topp guitarist Billy Gibbons. The body is fashioned with an unusual shape that only the Pagellis' could dream up. The guitar features a neck-through body, with a single humbucker. Volume and tone controls are mounted on the instruments body.



Artist Robert Goetzl

Martin Guitars has tapped Rutherford, New Jersey resident Robert Goetzl to create their 2018 model DX420.



Martin's Two Millionth Guitar
If you remember Goetzl designed the incredible artwork for Martin’s Two-Millionth guitar back in 2016. It was called the History of Time, and it was the most ornate guitar that Martin had ever created. A handcrafted RCM watch was embedded in the headstock. At the time this instrument retailed for $149,000 USD.

Martin DX420

If you missed out on that sale, you can get the DX420 for the manufacturers retail price of $799.00 SRP, $599.00 street price. This a Martin made of HPL (high pressure laminate) with a printed top designed exclusively for Martin by Mr. Goetzl.

The guitars neck is also made of laminated material, and the fretboard is made of Richlite. Another man made product. It come with a Fishman Sonitone under saddle pickup.

Gibson Modern
DC Standard

Gibson has come out with a new solid body model they call Custom Limited Edition Modern DC (double cutaway). This is a totally different design that has never been used on a Gibson guitar.

The guitar incorporates a swept neck heel that allows easy access to all 24 frets. It also has an extra-long neck tenon to maximize sustain, a sleek new Apex headstock carve for strength and durability.

Gibson Modern DC
Ebony


It also features a 2-Piece Maple Top with a Mahogany Body and a Mahogany medium C-Shape 57 Classic Neck pickup & 57 Classic Plus Bridge pickup. Controls include a single 500K CTS Volume, and Tone Pot, with a hand-wired harness, and a Switchcraft Toggle.

The guitar is available in Bullion Gold, Heritage Cherry Burst, or Ebony.


Gibson Modern DC
Semi-hollow




Gibson also features a similar model called the Modern DC (double cutaway) Semi-Hollow. The features are similar to the previously mentioned model, however this guitar has a one-piece solid Mahogany body, and a two piece solid Mahogany top with a cats-eye cutaway on the lower bout.




Gibson Modern DC Semi-hollow


This guitar is available in White Pearl, Gray Pearl, Blue Pearl, or Pearl Coral. Both models retail for around $4,000 USD.


As you may have read, Gibson has emerged from Bankruptcy under a newly named president, James "JC" Curleigh,  who formerly was president of Levi Strauss & Co. The majority shareholder is the investment firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co.

A few 2019 Gibson Electric Guitars
In taking a look at Gibson's 2019 offerings I cannot help but notice an extreme drop in the suggested retail price for their guitars. Can this signal Gibson once again offering some affordable models for us common people? We can only hope.

New Harmony Guitars

Harmony Guitars are offering some new models. Yes, I said Harmony Guitars. These are no longer made in Chicago, but the new models look nice. They are Silhouette, Rebel, and Jupiter, and all feature Gold Foil pickups and bolt-on necks, Madagascar Ebony fret boards, and locking tuners.

New Harmony Amplifier

The company is also offering a new Harmony amp line up. This will be a range of new combo amps, cabs and heads, along with a reissue of the classic 8418 Harmony amp. This amp will feature custom hand-wiring, a single 12" Jensen speaker, analog spring reverb, tremolo, and a pull boost. The prices for the guitars and amplifiers have not been set as of yet.

Nomade des mers


Nina Fasciaux, C. De Chatelperron

Parcourir le monde en autonomie et dans le respect de l’environnement, c’est le défi lancé par le jeune ingénieur Corentin de Chatelperron, en embarquant pour trois ans à bord du Nomade des Mers ! Ce tour du monde en catamaran a pour but de repérer, à chaque escale du voyage, les plus ingénieuses des low-tech, ces systèmes D accessibles et économiques, faciles à fabriquer et à réparer partout. Corentin en est convaincu : ces inventions, simples et durables, ont un véritable potentiel pour faire face aux grands enjeux écologiques du XXIe siècle, tels que l’accès à l’eau potable, la lutte contre la déforestation ou le réchauffement climatique. Avec ce livre, revivez ce périple extraordinaire, découvrez les inventions les plus incroyables et apprenez même à les construire grâce à des fiches techniques très détaillées. Du Maroc au Brésil, de la Thaïlande à l’Indonésie en passant par le Cap-Vert ou Madagascar, embarquez, vous aussi, pour un tour du monde des innovations low-tech !

Corentin de Chatelperron, né en 1983, est un ingénieur français, aventurier et président de l’association Gold of Bengal, qui a pour mission la recherche, le développement et la promotion de solutions à des problématiques d’autonomie en eau, énergie, alimentation et matériaux pour un meilleur respect de la nature, des cultures et des ressources propres à chaque territoire. Alors qu’il travaille dans un chantier naval au Bangladesh en 2009, Corentin a l'idée de remplacer la fibre de verre utilisée pour la construction des bateaux par de la fibre de jute, une ressource naturelle locale. Il construit alors le petit voilier Tara Tari, premier bateau à intégrer ce matériau, puis en 2010, à seulement 26 ans, il décide de rallier la France à son bord pour un périple de six mois en solitaire. Trois ans plus tard, le Gold of Bengal, bateau 100 % composite en jute, est inauguré au Bangladesh. Corentin propose une vision originale et moderne du développement durable et solidaire, favorisant l’échange de connaissances techniques entre les pays pour permettre l’éco-innovation locale et la diffusion de ces solutions.

Nina Fasciaux, d’abord engagée professionnellement dans la sphère humanitaire, a ensuite travaillé comme journaliste en Russie de 2011 à 2015. De retour en France, elle a rencontré Corentin lors d’un reportage sur le Nomade des Mers à Concarneau. Elle a ensuite invité le Low-tech Lab, ainsi que plusieurs aventuriers de la base Explore, à venir témoigner de leurs découvertes lors d’une journée consacrée à la mer et aux nouveaux explorateurs, qu’elle a organisée dans le cadre du Forum de l’économie positive au Havre, en 2016. Rédactrice indépendante, elle est aujourd’hui également l'ambassadrice en Europe du Solutions Journalism Network, basé à New York, et forme à ce titre les journalistes professionnels à la pratique du journalisme de solutions.

Research reveals that a 20-million-year-old African fossil, long thought to be a bat, actually represents one of the earliest branches of the lemur family tree. The reassessment challenges a long-held view that lemurs descended from ancestors that colonized Madagascar in a single wave roughly 60 million years ago, and were the first mammals to get there. Instead, the researchers say two separate lemur lineages may have arrived independently, and much later than previously thought.

          Madagascar vota a su próximo presidente entre 36 candidatos      Cache   Translate Page      
Casi 10 millones de habitantes de Madagascar están llamados a acudir a las urnas el miércoles para elegir a su próximo presidente de una lista de 36 candidatos que incluyen tres expresidentes, exministros, pastores, empresarios, un popular cantante de rock y tan solo cinco mujeres. El país se encuentra inmerso en una crisis política desde principios de año, cuando su presidente, Hery Rajaonarimampianina, intentó cambiar las leyes electorales a pocos meses para la celebración de los comicios y provocó casi tres meses de protestas en la capital, Antananarivo, que se saldaron con varios muertos y numerosos heridos. La historia de la gran isla del Océano Índico está marcada por golpes de estado y disturbios civiles. La ex colonia francesa ha luchado por superar las divisiones políticas después de una disputada elección en 2001 que provocó enfrentamientos en las calles y un golpe de estado respaldado por los militares en 2009 que derrocó a Marc Ravalomanana. Una larga lista de candidatos Un total de 36 candidatos se postulan para ocupar el cargo de presidente del gobierno, tres aspirantes más que en las pasadas elecciones celebradas en 2013. Según los expertos, el gran número de candidatos está en consonancia con la cultura electoral de Madagascar aunque denota cierta debilidad de los partidos políticos en esta frágil democracia. Los principales rivales de Rajaonarimampianina son dos de sus predecesores: Marc Ravalomanana, un magnate que gobernó el país de 2002 a 2009 y Andry Rajoelina, de 44 años, que lideró el golpe de estado de 2009 y se mantuvo como presidente de transición hasta 2014; a ambos se les prohibió postularse como candidatos en las últimas elecciones. Una encuesta encargada por la Fundación Friedrich Ebert, cuya publicación fue prohibida para «salvaguardar el orden público», otorgaba ventaja a Rajoelina (con el 25% de los votos) el candidato más popular entre los jóvenes, seguido de Ravalomanana (17%) y otorgaba un pobre resultado para Rajaonarimampianina (4% de los votos). Los resultados provisionales se conocerán a partir del 14 de noviembre. Si ninguno de los aspirantes obtiene más del 50% de los votos emitidos, se realizará una segunda vuelta el 19 de diciembre. El ganador de estos comicios tomará posesión de su cargo en la segunda mitad de enero de 2019. Mucho dinero, poca transparencia Madagascar es uno de los países más pobres del mundo que, curiosamente, más dinero gasta en la celebración de los comicios. Según un estudio, la campaña del actual presidente en 2013 fue la más cara del mundo, con un gasto de más de 20 dólares por cada voto ganado, superando las campañas electorales de Hilary Clinton y Donald Trump de 2016. La oposición y diversas organizaciones han denunciado en numerosas ocasiones que las leyes de financiación de campañas son débiles debido a que no hay un límite en el gasto y hay pocas obligaciones de divulgar de dónde procede el dinero de los candidatos. Todo ello hace que el sistema sea propicio para la corrupción. De poco ha servido la Carta de Buena Conducta redactada por un grupo de organizaciones civiles en el que hacían un llamamiento a los aspirantes a presidente para que declarasen sus bienes e intereses a la agencia anticorrupción de Madagascar y publicasen la naturaleza y el origen de sus fondos. Algunos de los candidatos se negaron a firmar dicho documento. Alrededor de 20 candidatos han denunciado irregularidades en el proceso electoral, cuya campaña se inició el 8 de octubre, y han intentado, sin éxito, retrasar la votación. Uno de los países más pobres El 75% de los malgaches viven con menos de 2 dólares al día y el país tienen una tasa de pobreza extrema del 76,2%, según un informe del Banco Mundial. Ante estos datos, muchos votantes consideran que el acceso al agua, la electricidad y los empleos son sus prioridades. Un popular sacerdote de la isla, Pedro Opeka, dijo que la pobreza fue creada por los políticos del país y denuncia que el país está tocando fondo.

          Vote Count Begins as Madagascar Chooses President      Cache   Translate Page      
Madagascar voted on Wednesday for a president to tackle unemployment, poverty and corruption on the Indian Ocean island, with the incumbent and two former heads of state leading a field of 36 contenders. Early results are expected from Thursday, but with so many standing, few expect an outright winner when preliminary and then official results are announced later in the month. President Hery Rajaonarimampianina is seeking a second term in office and his two main challengers are former heads of state: Marc Ravalomanana and Andry Rajoelina. If the vote needs to go to a second round, it will involve only the two top candidates and take place on December 19. The head of the European Union's observer mission, Cristian Preda, said his team deployed across the country had not yet detected any anomalies in the polls, which he said were key for the restoration of Madagascar's democratic credentials. Observers are hoping for the second peaceful election since the upheaval of 2009, when Ravalomanana was forced out of office by protests led by Rajoelina in what international organizations such as the African Union said was a coup. Those events prompted an exodus of foreign investors from a country that is one of the world's poorest despite reserves of nickel, cobalt, gold, uranium and other minerals. Defense Minister Beni Xavier Rasolofonirina said 10,000 security personnel had been deployed across the country to bolster security. Nearly 10 million people are registered to voter in the country of 25 million people. Voter Sahondramalala Nirisoa, a nurse in the capital, told Reuters: "I hope and I pray for change." Another voter, Erick Ralaiarimanana, 40, an information technology worker in the capital, said he hoped the next president would work for "the good of the Malagasy people." Polls closed at 5 p.m. (1400 GMT) and electoral officials in three polling stations in the capital said the turnout had been around 54 percent. Each of the three main candidates has pledged to accelerate recovery for an economy the International Monetary Fund forecasts will grow at more than 5 percent this year, its highest rate in a decade. Since a peaceful election in 2013, investors and donor governments have started to reengage following a four-year freeze that began after Rajoelina came to power. But the island was hit by a fresh political crisis in April, sparked by a legal amendment by Rajaonarimampianina's government that would have prevented Ravalomanana from standing for office. Rajaonarimampianina later removed that provision. Civil society groups accuse the three wealthy frontrunners of enriching themselves in office, something each denies. Ravalomanana said he was "delighted" with the way voting was unfolding. "This election is a turning point for the country," Ravalomanana said after voting in the capital Antananarivo. The election commission is expected to announce a preliminary result by Nov. 20. The High Constitutional court is expected to issue the final result by November 29.

          Distributional shifts in a biodiversity hotspot      Cache   Translate Page      

Publication date: December 2018

Abstract

Identifying ongoing changes in the distributions of species is critical for understanding and conserving biological diversity. Distributional shifts have been demonstrated in many ecosystems and taxa, yet the extent and nature of these changes remain largely undocumented for tropical forest mammals. Shifts over short time periods can be particularly alarming in areas of the world where mammals are already under threat as a result of human activities. This is the case for Madagascar, an island where deforestation, hunting, invasive species, and other human threats have resulted in the extinction of several endemic species. Here, we ask, are the distributions of Malagasy mammals changing? We test this by modeling local colonization and extinction dynamics, which are the biological processes that produce distributional shifts. We use camera trap data from the TEAM Network for four species along a 570 m elevational gradient in Ranomafana National Park, Madagascar. The endemic Eastern red forest rat (Nesomys rufus) declined in overall occupancy while the non-native bushpig (Potamochoerus larvatus) increased in occupancy overall. The two endemic carnivore species shifted their elevational use: the Malagasy ring-tailed mongoose (Galidia elegans) retracted from higher elevations and the Malagasy civet (Fossa fossana) moved to higher elevations, likely in response to anthropogenic pressures. These results show that shifts are occurring and we can detect them with just six years of data. These results appear near unique in documenting rapid changes in the spatial distributions of tropical forest mammals and provide important information for conservation.

Since the 2009 military coup backed unashamedly by french government and catholic church's clergy, Madagascar's social and economic situation has dramatically worsened. Just imagine that on the day of 26 January 2009 alone, thousands of people lost their jobs, because of mass plundering, vandalism and destruction of industries primarily financed by the anglosaxon world. Poverty rate, school drop-out and criminality rates have never been as high as now. To cope with that deleterious situation, many parents, adolescents and young adults "are forced to devise alternative solutions" for their livelihood ... Foreigners should be really cautious when engaging in relationship with young Malagasy men because most of them may be expecting to get some kind of "reward" - and their parents, if they are aware of their child behaviour, or even complicit - will expect you to "sponsor" more or less voluntarily some expenses (education, etc.) - In a few words, if you already know what it is to date a Filipino, then you already have an idea of what you may expect from a Malagasy ...
