Western Sahara UN envoys continues consultations in the region


11 February 2008The United Nations envoy for Western Sahara is continuing his in-depth consultations with the parties and neighbouring countries in the region ahead of the next round of scheduled talks between Morocco and the Frente Polisario. Peter van Walsum, the Secretary-General’s Personal Envoy for Western Sahara, met Secretary General Mohamed Abdelaziz and other members of the Frente Polisario leadership in Rabouni on Saturday, UN spokesperson Michele Montas told reporters.Those consultations followed meetings with senior Moroccan officials in the country’s capital, Rabat, late last week.Mr. van Walsum told journalists that he was in the region to listen to the views of both the parties and the neighbouring States, Algeria and Mauritania, on how to move into more substantial negotiations on how to provide for the self-determination for the people of Western Sahara.He is scheduled to hold discussions later this week in Algiers and Nouakchott, the Algerian and Mauritanian capitals.Mr. van Walsum said that while the positions of the Moroccan Government and the Frente Polisario remain far apart, the two sides have reiterated their plans to participate in UN-brokered talks next month. Those talks will take place in Manhasset, New York, on 11-13 March.The UN Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO) has been in the Territory since 1991 to monitor the ceasefire between Morocco and the Frente Polisario. read more

Canadian dollar lower as traders avoid risk


The Canadian dollar shed early gains by late morning Thursday as traders continued to shun risk in the wake of elections in Greece last weekend that failed to produce a winner.The loonie dipped 0.1 of a cent to 99.81 cents US after earlier going as high 100.23 amid rising commodity prices and the latest snapshot on the country’s trade performance which, while improving month over month, came in slightly below expectations.Statistics Canada reported that the trade surplus increased from $273 million in February to $351 million in March. Exports edged down 0.4 per cent while imports decreased 0.6 per cent during the month.“The fall in two-way trade suggests that even after soft activity in February, there wasn’t much of a snap-back in trade in March,” observed CIBC World Markets economist Emanuella Enenajor.The loonie closed below parity with the U.S. dollar Wednesday for the first time in two months amid turmoil arising from the inconclusive elections in Greece.The currency has lost about three-quarters of a US cent over the past two days as traders avoided riskier assets such as commodities and resource-based currencies like  the loonie.Markets were nervous Thursday as talks to form a Greek government dragged into a fourth day after no party won enough votes to form an administration. Analysts expect these talks will go nowhere and that Greeks will go back to the polls in June.There are some hopes in the markets that in new elections some Greeks who want the country to remain in the euro currency bloc will support the main pro-euro parties, facilitating the creation of a moderate coalition government.In the meantime, Greece is being held together by an international bailout. And analysts warn that Greece could run out of money as soon as next month without a government to negotiate the next level of its bailout.Meanwhile, the June crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange gained 43 cents to US$97.24. Greek uncertainty and worries about slowing economic conditions have pushed oil down sharply from US$106 at the beginning of this month.Copper prices were up three cents to US$3.69. Demand concerns had pushed the metal down almost five per cent from May 1. Bullion prices gained $2.90 to US$1,597.10 an ounce.On Thursday, traders took in Chinese data showing slower than expected exports and imports in April, which raised fears the world’s second-biggest economy wasn’t doing enough to stimulate domestic demand amid an economic slowdown.Imports edged up 0.3 per cent to US$144.8 billion in April while exports rose 4.9 per cent to $163.3 billion, leaving a surplus of $18.4 billion, according to customs data released Thursday.That compared with a surplus of $5.35 billion in March and a deficit of $31.5 billion in February.China has been an important prop for a global economy still in the midst of a fragile recovery from the 2008 financial collapse and subsequent recession. Its huge appetite for energy and metals has boosted commodity prices and oil and mining stocks on the TSX. read more

Les bactéries peuvent recycler nimporte quel ADN même celui de mammouth


first_imgLes bactéries peuvent recycler n’importe quel ADN, même celui de mammouthDes chercheurs danois ont mis en évidence la capacité de certaines bactéries modernes à intégrer à leur propre ADN d’autres séquences génétiques. Ces dernières pourraient alors être aussi anciennes que celles provenant d’un mammouth fossilisé. Les scientifiques le savent depuis longtemps : les bactéries sont les championnes toutes catégories du “recyclage génétique”. De nombreuses espèces de ces micro-organismes peuvent, en effet, intégrer à leur génome des bribes d’ADN. Ce processus intervient lors de la mort d’autres bactéries ou bien proviennent du milieu ambiant, véritable ‘dépôt’ d’éléments génétiques divers et variés de tous les organismes qui y vivent.Qui y vivent… ou qui y ont vécu : des chercheurs viennent en effet d’observer, en laboratoire, la bactérie Acinetobacter baylyi en train de récupérer de l’ADN… de mammouth ! Particulièrement douée pour le “recyclage” de matériel génétique, A. baylyi a été mise en présence d’ADN vieux de 43.000 ans, fragmentaire et en mauvais état, récupéré sur un fossile de mammouth laineux. Les bactériologistes et généticiens du Muséum d’histoire naturelle du Danemark, ont alors constaté que la bactérie absorbait ces séquences génétiques fossiles pour les intégrer à son propre ADN, tout comme elle l’aurait fait avec des éléments d’ADN actuel, rapporte leur étude publiée dans la revue PNAS.  La souplesse génétique des bactéries À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Cette expérience, loin d’être anecdotique, s’inscrit dans un ensemble de recherches menées par les scientifiques du monde entier pour mieux comprendre l’extraordinaire souplesse génétique des bactéries. Car, outre cette faculté d’emprunter l’ADN d’autres organismes, celles-ci se reproduisent par division cellulaire, à la vitesse grand V. De plus, de fréquentes mutations ont été observées. Autant de mécanismes qui permettent aux bactéries de lutter “en temps réel” contre les antibiotiques inventés par l’homme. Il s’agit donc là d’un enjeu de santé publique.(Crédits photo : Katrine Harving Holm)Le 24 novembre 2013 à 18:52 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

To schedule an appointment for enrollment assistance, call 360-313-1390.About Medicaid fundingUnder the Affordable Care Act, the federal government will pay 100 percent of the cost to cover the newly eligible Medicaid enrollees for the first three years. After that, the federal contribution is scheduled to decline to 90 percent by 2020 and remain at that level.For those who were previously eligible for Medicaid but were not enrolled, the federal government will pay only 50 percent of the cost for providing care, which was the prior Medicaid funding structure in Washington.The Urban Institute estimated in a May 2012 report the federal government would spend about $2 billion this year to provide services to new Medicaid clients in Washington. The total cost of providing services to existing and new Washington Medicaid clients in 2014 is estimated to be about $7.2 billion, with the state’s share totaling $2.4 billion.Estimated number of people enrolled in Medicaid in Clark County: 100,500.Medicaid gives womanhealth care stabilityFor about two years, Gwendolyn Greene of Vancouver received her medical care from the Free Clinic of Southwest Washington.

New Report Predicts Rising Tides More Flooding


first_imgFlooding in Boston’s North End during a nor’easter storm on March 2, 2018. A new government report suggests floods will become more common over the next century.Some of the worst flooding during this weekend’s East Coast storm happened during high tides.Shoreline tides are getting progressively higher. A soon-to-be-published report obtained by NPR predicts a future where flooding will be a weekly event in some coastal parts of the country.“The numbers are staggering,” says oceanographer William Sweet, at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. “Today’s storm will be tomorrow’s high tide,” he says, referring to how high coastal water rises. “A storm [such as we experienced] along the East Coast of the United States this weekend, that will be a high tide at some point in the future, whether that’s two or three decades or eight decades, we’ll see, but it’s coming.”This new report sets out to give communities a clear guide to prepare for coastal flooding. “We find that minor flooding starts on average about a foot and half above high tide,” says Sweet, “Moderate flooding starts about two and a half feet above high tide, and major flooding starts about four feet.”That’s what people can expect now; it gives them a margin of safety, and for the most part communities have been built to handle that. But here’s the thing: As high tides get higher, that is inexorably reducing the margin of safety.In fact even without a storm, high tides already are flooding cities like Miami and Norfolk, Va. And now NOAA’s latest calculations portray a future where this kind of “sunny day” flooding will become a lot more frequent.NOAA’s calculations of future high tides assumes two “intermediate” forecasts of how much sea level will rise — from one and a half feet to three feet by 2100. It by no means assumes some of the more severe scenarios should the ice sheets in Greenland or the Antarctic melt. Even with intermediate rise, by 2050 cities on the Atlantic would see high tides flooding the streets 25 to 130 times a year. By 2100, it could happen almost every day. These frequencies will be influenced by weather patterns like El Nino and prevailing winds, but over time they’ll occur more often from rising tides alone as sea level gets higher.NOAA has also found the rate of increase in tidal flooding is accelerating in about a third of the places they’ve tracked. “The problem is going to become chronic rather quickly,” says Sweet. “It’s not going to be a slow, gradual change.”It’s already becoming chronic in Norfolk. Emily Steinhilber studies coastal issues at Old Dominion University in Virginia. She also lives close to flood zones. “It’s definitely a topic a conversation,” she says. Steinhilber says the city’s largest hospital is hardening its campus against flooding, for example. The city just passed an ordinance requiring new construction to be built higher off the ground.But Steinhilber says the root cause of all this — global warming — isn’t always discussed. “For the most part everyone is aware that sea level is rising and they know that we’re kind of in the bull’s eye,” she says, “and the background of ‘Why’ is not really part of the conversation.”Others are having that conversation, such as the U.S. military. Retired Navy Rear Adm. Ann Phillips says military leaders are aware that warming means sea level rise. That’s especially worrisome for the Navy. “We can’t use historical data to plan what’s coming because it won’t work,” she says.Well over 100 military installations that are close to coastlines have reported flooding recently. According to a report from the Center for Climate and Security (which Phillips helped write), tidal flooding will increasingly threaten equipment, fuel depots, ammunition warehouses, housing and docks. Now, Phillips says, these new tidal flooding numbers from NOAA lay out a difficult future for the Navy, which can’t just retreat from coastlines. “Yet another report that sea level rise is accelerating [with] recurrent flooding just makes the sense of urgency that much more acute,” she says.Cities like Norfolk and Miami as well as the military are planning on building sea walls, raising buildings and fortifying themselves, but they’re in a long race with a relentless rising tide that is picking up speed.The NOAA report, entitled “Patterns and Protections of High Tide Flooding Along the U.S. Coastline Using a Common Impact Threshold,” is due to be released later this week.Copyright 2018 NPR.
