European shares flat Daimlers profit warning knocks auto stocks

first_img(For a live blog on European stocks, type LIVE/ in an Eikon news window) July 12 (Reuters) – European shares were little changed in early trade on Friday, as investors parsed through China trade data that came in at market open, an indicator of global economic growth, while a profit warning from Daimler knocked down auto stocks. China’s yuan-denominated exports rose 6.1% in the first half of this year from a year earlier, while imports increased 1.4%, customs data showed, which resulted in a trade surplus of 1.23 trillion yuan ($178.94 billion) for the first six months. The data comes after a spate of disappointing economic reports from around the globe, which showed that the global economy suffered from a protracted U.S.-China trade war that forced major central banks to take a more accommodative stance. The pan-European stocks benchmark was flat at 0712 GMT with auto stocks down 0.6%.

Healthcare stocks slipped as drugmakers resumed their slide after the White House said it was ditching a key plan to lower U.S. drug prices and raising the possibility of new measures focused on drugmakers.

During these feuds, the worms emit one of the loudest sounds in the ocean, according to a new study. The source of the underwater hullabaloo is a nearly transparent segmented worm called the Leocratides kimuraorum, which lives inside sponges 279 to 554 feet (85 to 169 meters) deep off the coast of Japan. [The 12 Weirdest Animal Discoveries]Advertisement These wigglies are just a tad more than an inch (29 millimeters) long and have lengthy tentacles and a big mouth (literally). These seemingly quiet creatures revealed their true nature under the spotlight in the lab. A group of researchers used an instrument called a hydrophone to record 15 pops that were emitted from three kimuraorums as they were fighting. In a marine feud researchers dub “mouth-fighting,” the worms approached each other headfirst with their mouths open. During such encounters, the worms’ pharynx muscles expand rapidly, creating a cavitation bubble that collapses and produces a loud “pop” while the worms launch into each other. The researchers found that these pops can reach 157 decibels in the water (which is a different measurement than decibels in the air). From right next to the water tank, the pops sounded like humans snapping their fingers, lead author Goto Ryutaro, an assitant professor at Kyoto University told Live Science. “Though they probably sound louder if you hear them in the water.” The worms are as loud as snapping shrimps, which are one of the biggest noisemakers in the ocean, the authors wrote. What’s more, they found that these worms did not make any noise when simply disturbed, they only did so when they were fighting. They “may use mouth-fighting to defend territory or living chambers from other worms,” the authors wrote July 8 in the journal Current Biology. “A loud pop may be a byproduct of the rapid mouth attack, but it may also aid intraspecific communication.” A loud noise could somehow determine the victor of the fight or even reveal the whereabouts of nearby worms, they wrote.

The Marshall Islands Are 10 Times More Radioactive Than Chernobyl

first_img 10 Times HBO’s ‘Chernobyl’ Got the Science Wrong These findings are important because “measuring the radioactive contamination of the crater sediment is a first step in assessing the overall impact of nuclear weapons testing on the ocean ecosystems,” the researchers wrote in the study. In the third study, the researchers tested more than 200 fruits — mostly coconuts and pandanus — on 11 of the islands from four different atolls in the northern Marshall Islands. Cesium-137 levels didn’t look good for a sizeable chunk of the fruits on Bikini and Rongelap atolls, which had radioactivity levels higher than those deemed safe by several countries and international organizations, the researchers found. More work is needed to educate people living on the Marshall Islands about these dangers. Moreover, these findings and future research can shed light on whether it’s safe for the Marshallese people to resettle or harvest food on some of these islands, the researchers said. The researchers tested coconuts and pandanus fruit (shown here) for radioactivity on 11 of the islands.

When testing the soil for plutonium-239 and -240, the researchers found that some of the islands had levels that were between 10 and 1,000 times higher than those on Fukushima (where an earthquake and tsunami led to the meltdown of nuclear reactors) and about 10 times higher than levels in the Chernobyl exclusion zone. The researchers took only a limited number of soil samples, meaning a more comprehensive survey is needed, they said. Regardless, they were surprised that neither national governments nor international organizations had “any further guidance on permissible plutonium levels in the soil,” even though levels in the Marshall Islands were high, the researchers wrote in the study.

Some of these tests happened in the Marshall Islands, a chain of islands between Hawaii and the Philippines that was then a district of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands and was run by the U.S. on behalf of the United Nations. The first two bombs, called Able and Baker, were tested on Bikini Atoll in 1946 and kicked off a 12-year period of nuclear testing on the Bikini and Enewetak atolls, during which the U.S. tested 67 nuclear weapons. The first-ever hydrogen bomb test, with the code name Ivy Mike, was tested on Enewetak in 1951. The U.S. conducted its largest hydrogen bomb test on Bikini Atoll — the 1954 Castle Bravo bomb, which was more than 1,000 times more powerful than Little Boy, the uranium weapon that decimated Hiroshima. In addition to contaminating the Bikini and Enewetak atolls, nuclear fallout from the tests also rained down on and sickened people living on Rongelap and Utirik atolls (also part of the Marshall Islands), the researchers said. In 2016, a team of researchers from Columbia University in New York published a study in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) on the background gamma radiation in three of the northern Marshall atolls: Enewetak, Bikini and Rongelap. The researchers found that radiation levels on Bikini were higher than previously reported, so they decided to do more in-depth studies on radioactivity in the islands. (Nuclear weapons are one source that releases gamma-rays, which are like energetic X-rays.) More fallout Now, that same team has written three new studies, published online yesterday (July 15) in the journal PNAS, on four of the atolls in the northern Marshall islands: Bikini, Enewetak, Rongelap and Utirik. External gamma radiation levels were significantly elevated on Bikini Atoll, on Enjebi Island in Enewetak Atoll and on Naen Island in Rongelap Atoll, compared with an island in the southern Marshall Islands that the scientists used as a control, the researchers found. The levels on Bikini and Naen islands were so high, they surpassed the maximum exposure limit that the United States and the Republic of the Marshall Islands agreed to in the 1990s, the researchers said. (On a side note, bikini swimsuits weren’t named after the island because of its tropicality, but because the French designer wanted the two-piece swimsuit to be “explosive,” just like the bomb tested there, said one of the study’s senior scientists, Ivana Nikolic-Hughes, director of the K1 Project at the Center for Nuclear Studies and a senior lecturer of chemistry at Columbia University.) [Flying Saucers to Mind Control: 22 Declassified Military & CIA Secrets] The researchers also found that the islands of Runit and Enjebi in Enewetak Atoll, as well as on Bikini and Naen islands, had high concentrations of certain radioactive isotopes in the soil. (An isotope is an element with a different number of neutrons in its nucleus.) These four islands had radioactive plutonium levels that were higher than those found in Fukushima and Chernobyl, the researchers found. “What was surprising was just how high the external gamma radiation was for Naen, which is the outer island for Rongelap Atoll,” Nikolic-Hughes told Live Science. “It was populated during the Bravo test … [the people there] were then moved, moved back and moved again. It’s quite a dreadful history of what happened to Rongelapese people.” In their second study, the researchers worked with professional divers, who collected 130 soil samples from the Castle Bravo Crater at Bikini Atoll. The level of some of the isotopes — plutonium-239 and -240, americium-241 and bismuth-207 — was an order of magnitude higher than levels found on other Marshall Islands, the researchers found.

New road rail links to make Manipur gateway to SE Asia CM

first_img COMMENT Infrastructure and Construction SHARE SHARE EMAIL November 08, 2018 Manipur Chief Minister N. Biren Singh. File photo railway Published on COMMENTS Manipur is hoping to benefit from the upcoming Asian Highway and rail connectivity to become an investment destination in the northeast, Chief Minister N Biren Singh said.Biren Singh said the state could well become the main gateway to Southeast Asia via the land route as work on the four-lane highway is on in full swing.National Highway 39 that passes through the state capital Imphal up to Moreh on the Indo-Myanmar border is being developed as Asian Highway 1.The trans-Asian highway traverses through several countries in the continent and the stretch through Manipur is scheduled to be completed by mid-2021, he said.“Land related issued have been solved and land acquisition completed,” Singh told a visiting group of journalists recently.Work on the Jiribam-Imphal railway line is also going on and the project has a deadline of December 2020 to be operational and bring Manipur on the Indian Railway map.The 111-km long railway line passes through several tunnels and will also have a number of bridges owing to the hilly terrain it has to cover to reach the Imphal valley.The chief minister expressed hope that the completion of the highway and railway projects will bring much-needed attention to the state from entrepreneurs.The state has been plagued by decades-long insurgency with a number of militant groups still active in the hills and also the valley.Army and Assam Rifles officials, who spearhead anti-insurgency operations in the state, said though militancy is on the wane, extortion by many of these groups remain a problem.“Manipur is now a totally peaceful state,” the chief minister said.Admitting that the problem of extortion remains, Singh said the issue will also be solved once successful deliberations are held with the insurgent groups, whom he has invited for talks.An Integrated Check Post (ICP) is being built at Moreh on the India-Myammar border on NH-39, which is located about 110 km away from Imphal. Tamu is the corresponding town on the Myanmar side of the ICP, Moreh.Though a Land Customs Station (LCS) exists at Moreh to handle trade, a sprawling new station is being built anticipating a surge in trade volume.Moreh, as a part of India’s ‘Look East’ and now ‘Act East’ policy, is the gateway not only to Myanmar, but also for reaching Thailand, Laos and Cambodia.At the Moreh border, 45.58 acres of land is being developed by the Land Port Authority of India to facilitate trade and people movement, an official said.The facilities at the ICP would include customs and immigration, passenger terminal, warehouse for import and cargo building truck parking area. Transhipment of cargo would be done at the new land port at Moreh, the official said. SHARE Manipurlast_img read more

Crucial CWC meet in Ahmedabad on March 12

first_img COMMENT March 06, 2019 All India Congress Committee (AICC)’s highest decision-making body, Congress Working Committee (CWC), will meet in Ahmedabad on March 12 in what is being seen as an attempt to challenge Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah on their home turf of Gujarat, ahead of the Lok Sabha polls.Earlier, the CWC meeting was scheduled for February 28, but it was postponed on February 26 after the Indian Air Force carried out an operation against Jaish-e-Mohammed training camps at Balakot in Pakistan. On February 14, Congress President Rahul Gandhi had launched his party’s election campaign from Valsad district in South Gujarat, which was overshadowed by the Pulwama attack the same day.Agenda of the meetThe CWC meeting is now being held on March 12 to commemorate the day when Mahatma Gandhi had concluded his Dandi March in 1930.The CWC is expected to rework its policy on national security in view of the current political situation, shift the narrative from Pulwama attack and prepare itself to face the LS elections.The party has also roped in Lieutenant-General DS Hooda (retired), the architect of Indian Army’s surgical strike to avenge the Uri terror attack in 2016, to lead a task force. The team, which will also have retired police and Army officers, will submit a report on ‘challenges to national security’ later this month.According to party sources, all 51 members of the CWC will attend the Ahmedabad meeting on March 12. The CWC meeting will be followed by a public meeting on the outskirts of the city.The CWC meetings are usually held in New Delhi. But, in October 2018, it was held at the Sevagram Ashram at Wardha in Maharashtra to mark the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.Improving performanceBy holding the CWC meeting here, the Congress hopes to galvanise its cadres and improve its performance. In 2017 Assembly polls, the party won 77 seats in the 182-member House, reducing the BJP’s tally to just 99 for the first time since 1995.In the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, the BJP had won all the 26 seats.

New cabinet ministers to be sworn in at 3 pm Saturday Goa

first_img Next Press Trust of India PanajiJuly 13, 2019UPDATED: July 13, 2019 04:58 IST Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said the swearing-in ceremony would be held at 3 pm Saturday. (Photo: PTI)Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said late on Friday night that he would reshuffle the cabinet on Saturday replacing four ministers and the swearing-in ceremony would be held at 3 pm.Ten Congress MLAs had on Wednesday joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) increasing the strength of the party to 27 on the floor of the House.Pramod Sawant said the three members from a coalition partner, Goa Forward Party, and an Independent MLA Rohan Khaunte would be dropped from the cabinet.Pramod Sawant refused to name the MLAs who would be inducted but said all the four would be from the BJP, with three of them from the legislators who joined the party on Wednesday.Speculations are rife that former leader of opposition Chandrakant Kavlekar, Philip Nery Rodrigues and Atanasio Monserratte would be inducted in the cabinet along with Deputy Speaker Michael Lobo.Pramod Sawant said the swearing-in ceremony would be held at 3 pm Saturday.This would the second cabinet reshuffle by Pramod Sawant since he took over as the chief minister three months ago. In his first cabinet reshuffle, Sawant had inducted MGP’s breakaway MLA Deepak Pauskar after dropping then deputy chief minister Sudin Dhavalikar.Asked why allies are being dropped from the cabinet, the chief minister said the decision has been taken as per directives of the central leadership.”I don’t want to go into details. We have taken this decision to give good governance to the people,” he said.Sawant has the support by three MLAs from the Goa Forward Party and an Independent.Goa Forward Party (GFP) chief and Deputy Chief Minister Vijai Sardesai had during the day said they are hoping for an amicable solution to the crisis.”The GFP is a part of the NDA and had joined the BJP-led government after talks with the saffron party’s national leadership,” Sardesai said, adding, “The present state BJP leaders were not part of the discussions then. As such, we will take appropriate steps only after talking to NDA leadership at the Centre.””We have not yet received any official communication from the BJP leaders. On the contrary, we have received indications that the matter will be sorted out amicably,” he said.Ten of the 15 Congress MLAs, led by the leader of Opposition, Chandrakant Kavlekar, switched sides and joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday.While the 10 MLAs and Lobo returned from Delhi, Sawant stayed back to attend a high-level meeting on Friday evening on the issue of mining in Goa, which has come to a standstill following a February 2018 Supreme Court order.Also Read | Goa CM Pramod Sawant seeks resignation of 3 ministers, independent MLA to induct new facesAlso Watch | Leaderless Congress headed towards self-destruction?For the latest World Cup news, live scores and fixtures for World Cup 2019, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

and the answer is clear Donald J Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 11 2018 Write to Abby Vesoulis at abbyvesoulis@timecomFor people who have a heart attack chances are high that if they dont do much to change their lifestyle and health habits they will have another onepossibly even a fatal onein a few years But the dietary and exercise changes that doctors recommend are often too intimidating and frightening for patients Most heart rehabilitation programs include regular treadmill sessions several times a week at a hospital or heart facility but nearly two-thirds of heart attack patients dont participate in these programs For people who are overweight or obese and are not in the habit of exercising such regimens are off-putting and stressful since they are afraid that the exercise will trigger another heart attack Dr Elena Salmoriago-Blotcher assistant professor of medicine and epidemiology at Brown Universitys Warren Alpert School of Medicine & Public Health wanted to find an alternative for people like this In a small new study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association she and her colleagues found that tai chi might be a useful way to introduce reluctant people to exercise TIME Health Newsletter Get the latest health and science news plus: burning questions and expert tips View Sample Sign Up Now In the study 29 men and women who had recently had a heart attack were randomly assigned to two tai chi groups One practiced tai chi twice a week for 12 weeks by attending sessions at the hospital while the other group did it three times a week for 24 weeks All of the volunteers were also given DVDs to help them continue practicing tai chi at home After three months Salmoriago-Blotcher found that the people in the group doing tai chi more frequently were more physically active than those doing less of the exercise After six months the differences were more pronounced Not only were the people in the more intensive group practicing tai chi more often but they were also doing more physical activity outside of their sessions such as riding their bikes and climbing up and down stairs in their homes that they were afraid to use before MORE: Why Tai Chi Is As Good For You As CrossFit "People like it and they came” says Salmoriago-Blotcher “We retained pretty much everybody for the length of the study And there is a preliminary indication that the longer program may improve physical activity We changed behavior" The study which was funded by the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health wasnt designed to see if tai chi could actually replace the traditional exercise programs associated with cardiac rehab but to see if people who are averse to exercising would accept tai chi as a way to get more physically active The study didnt include enough people to see if it changed their fitness levels and other measures of metabolic health for example But getting previously inactive people to move more is the first hurdle says Salmoriago-Blotcher The results suggest that for people who dont do cardiac rehab tai chi may be a way to entice them to start exercising in a gentle less intimidating way It may also act as a gateway to other types of more traditional and intensive exercise that have been shown to improve fitness and potentially lower risk of having further heart attacks "Tai chi is an interesting promising exercise option" says Salmoriago-Blotcher "I think based on what we found its a reasonable and safe step to offer tai chi within cardiac rehab If someone says they are afraid of exercising we could ask if they are interested in doing tai chi" MORE: Eating and Exercise Needs to Be Part of Heart-Health Counseling Say Docs Once people start to move more using tai chi she says doctors can revisit the possibility of switching them to a more intensive traditional cardiac rehab program The benefits of offering tai chi to the people who arent getting cardiac rehab now could be enormous since its a gentle way to become physically active Unlike other forms of exercise including working out on a treadmill and even yoga tai chi is non-striving says Salmoriago-Blotcher meaning there is no set goal or pose that needs to be reached: just moving for the sake of moving By its nature people who practice tai chi "are not going anywhere and not wanting to achieve [physical goals]" she says "We tell people to just do it without thinking about goals They should just enjoy the movement and the practice" Tai chi is also customizable For people who cant arrange transportation to come to regular rehab sessions at a hospital tai chi can also be easily done at home without equipment which might also encourage more people to exercise It can also be adjusted to be more or less strenuous depending on how its practiced Salmoriago-Blotcher is hoping to study tai chi further in heart attack survivors by upping the intensity and seeing through heart rate monitors if that actually helps improve their physical fitness If it does then tai chi might be on its way to being an alternative to the treadmill as a way to improve heart health Contact us at editors@timecomIf
