HYGiENIC PRACTICES

first_imgDo I need to bathe my guinea pig? No. Guinea pigs are quite capable of cleaning themselves and taking care of their hygiene. In fact, taking a bath could be stressful. They are not natural swimmers and are prone to cold. So, taking a bath could lead to serious diseases. Your guinea pig has natural body oils which get stripped when they take a bath, leaving them susceptible to parasites infestation. You should not give your guinea pigs a bath if they are very dirty and need to be cleaned up, if your guinea pig recently had a parasite infestation and you need to clean out the dead parasites, if he/she has a dirty rump because of bladder infection or diarrhoea. If you must give your guinea pig a bath, make sure of the following details: Also Read – Feel what you fear The water is not too cold The room in which you are giving your guinea pig a bath is not too cold Do not use a deep washing bowl and ensure the water is not higher than your guinea pig’s height After the bath immediately dry your guinea pig with a towel or flannels by gently rubbing or patting down in the direction of the fur. My guinea pig is eating its droppings. Is this normal? This is very normal and healthy. Even though humans might find this action abnormal and dirty, your guinea pig eats his/her own droppings to completely absorb the nutrients in the food. Guinea pigs have two types of food – dark solid droppings and soft squishy droppings called caecals or cecotropes. Caecals are lighter in colour with a green or yellowish tint to them. Plant material is difficult to digest in one go therefore, many nutrients don’t get absorbed in the intestine and pass out of the body as faecal matter. Like a cow chews the cud, a guinea pig eating its caecals is a similar process. The food is first consumed and broken down by bacteria in the intestines of the guinea pig. This result in partial absorption of the nutrients in the food, the guinea pig will then consume the caecal again to thoroughly absorb the nutrients. Therefore, ensure that your guinea pig gets an adequate balanced diet to keep him/her healthy. Also Read – Homecoming My guinea pig seems to be shivering. Is something wrong? Generally guinea pigs shiver because of fear. If there are any animals in the vicinity of your guinea pig or if he/she is in a new environment then he/she could be experiencing fear. Make him/her comfortable, spend time with him/her and ensure that no animals in the vicinity are scaring your pig. Another cause of shivering is if your pet is cold. Guinea pigs can’t handle cold well. Even if it feels warm to you, it might not be warm enough for your guinea pig. Ensure that there is no wind or drafts near your guinea pig’s cage and that it is sufficiently warm and cosy. Guinea pigs are prone to pneumonia and respiratory infections so if you notice any abnormal shivering with other symptoms, immediately consult a vet.

Resource stocks weigh on Toronto market US markets reverse earlier gains

first_imgTORONTO – Canada’s main stock index lost ground on Tuesday as U.S. stocks finished off a roller-coaster day of trading in the red.The S&P/TSX composite index fell 72.93 points to 16,298.88, in a largely broad-based decline led by the influential energy and materials sectors.South of the border, losses by industrial and technology companies pulled U.S. stocks lower, erasing an early gain that sent the Dow Jones industrial average surging to 26,000 points for the first time.In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average was down 10.33 points to 25,792.86. The S&P 500 index gave back 9.82 points to 2,776.42 and the Nasdaq composite index lost 37.37 points to 7,223.69 — with both indices also reversing earlier gains.“There’s bound to be some profit taking given that the rise in the U.S. has become exponential since late last year and coming into this year,” said Luc de la Durantaye, managing director of CIBC Management.“It’s an expensive market and there’s a lot of expectations built in, and sobriety is kicking in a bit.”In currency markets, the Canadian dollar closed at an average trading value of 80.52 cents US, up 0.02 of a U.S. cent, ahead of the Bank of Canada’s interest rate announcement Wednesday.All eyes will be on the central bank as it decides whether or not to raise the trend-setting interest rate for a third time since last summer.“I think the bank is economically bent and will raise rates tomorrow, but I think they could very well have a bit of a dovish tone,” said de la Durantaye.On the Canadian corporate front, shares of Nutrien Ltd. (TSX:NTR) were down 54 cents, or 0.81 per cent, to $65.96 after the fertilizer giant said it plans to sell all of its holdings in Israel Chemicals Ltd. in a secondary share offering for an expected US$700 million. The sale comes as one of the requirements set out by global regulators for Potash Corp. and Agrium Inc. to merge to become Nutrien.Meanwhile, struggling Yellow Pages Ltd. (TSX:Y) saw its stock rise six cents, or 0.73 per cent, to $8.27 following the Montreal-based company’s announcement that it has cut another 500 jobs across the country.In commodities news, the February crude contract was down 57 cents to US$63.73 per barrel and the February natural gas contract gave back seven cents to US$3.13 per mmBTU.The February gold contract was up US$2.20 to US$1,337.10 an ounce and the March copper contract was unchanged at US$3.22 a pound.Follow @DaveHTO on Twitter.last_img read more

The government has just made a rake of promises about special needs

first_img Share120 Tweet Email2 The government has just made a rake of promises about special needs education Teachers union the INTO said that the “jury was out” on the new resource model. Wednesday 18 Jan 2017, 2:09 PM Jan 18th 2017, 2:09 PM http://jrnl.ie/3192495 Image: Sam Boal/Rollingnews.ie By Sean Murray 10,816 Views center_img Minister Richard Bruton at the launch of the new model at Marino College in Dublin today. Image: Sam Boal/Rollingnews.ie Short URL 20 Comments Minister Richard Bruton at the launch of the new model at Marino College in Dublin today. THE MINISTER FOR Education Richard Bruton has announced that the new model for allocating special education teaching resources for schools will be introduced in September.Bruton said that the new model “will deliver better outcomes for children with special educational needs”, and that it will eliminate “unfairnesses and other problems which exist in the current model”.Teachers union the INTO said, however, that the “jury was out” on this new model and that, previously, “resources didn’t match the rhetoric” when it came to ensuring services and resources were provided in this area.Under the new system, an additional 900 teaching posts will be created while up to 1,000 schools will receive additional resources.The Department of Education said that the new Resource Allocation Model will ensure that:Barriers to accessing resources will be removed, and children who need support will get it immediately rather than waiting for diagnosis.These resources will be linked with genuine need, and children will not be unnecessarily labelled in order to access resources.Schools will be able to allocate resources based on a child’s individual needs rather than for a particular diagnosis.Children with special needs will be properly integrated into the school.This new method for allocating resources for special education came from a series of recommendations made by the National Council for Special Education.The decision to implement the model came after a pilot scheme was conducted in 47 schools.Bruton said that €18 million of additional funding would support the new teaching positions.He added: “Indeed, the €1.5 billion which the Government spends on this area overall, demonstrates our commitment to this crucial area. That is one fifth of the total education budget”.Under the model, while 1,000 schools will receive more resources, the remaining schools have been guaranteed that their allocations for special education will not be lower than the amount they received in 2016/17 for the next two years.The INTO fears that this guarantee is just a way to postpone cuts to funding in the area in future.A statement from the union said: “It remains to be seen if the new model is simply a method of postponing resource cuts for two years.”While the INTO welcomed the greater autonomy being offered to schools and the single allocation for special education teaching resources that the model offers, the union is sceptical on other aspects of the scheme.“Previous models promised that schools would be frontloaded with resources to provide supports immediately to those pupils who needed it without delay,” their statement said. “This did not prove to be the case in many instances.The current claim remains to be proven and will be closely monitored.The model was also welcomed by the National Parents Council who said the new system will set a “more level playing field for all children” and that it will “remove the need to label children to access necessary learning supports”.Read: Schools to be required to publish all complaints made against themRead: Government must stop discrimination in funding for new schools, say teachers Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Mummies and 1000 statues found in search of 3500yearold tomb

first_img Share Tweet Email3 By AFP Image: SIPA USA/PA Images http://jrnl.ie/3345308 EGYPTIAN ARCHAEOLOGISTS HAVE unearthed several mummies, colourful wooden sarcophagi and more than 1,000 funerary statues in a 3,500-year-old tomb near the city of Luxor hailed as an “important discovery”.Antiquities officials had initially said six mummies along with partial remains were discovered near the southern city, but said they had later identified two more mummies.“There are 10 coffins and eight mummies. The excavation is ongoing,” Mostafa Waziri, the head of the archeological mission, told AFP.The 18th Dynasty tomb, discovered in the Draa Abul Nagaa necropolis near the famed Valley of the Kings, belonged to a nobleman named Userhat who worked as the city judge, the ministry said in a statement.It was opened to add more mummies during the 21st Dynasty, about 3,000 years ago, to protect them during a period when tomb-robbing was common, said Waziri, the head of the archaeological mission, at the site.“It was a surprise how much was being displayed inside” the tomb, Antiquities Minister Khaled el-Enany told reporters outside the tomb.“We found a large number of Ushabti (small carved figurines), more than 1,000 of them,” Enany said.“This is an important discovery,” he said.Ushabti figurines were often placed with the deceased in ancient Egyptian tombs to help with responsibilities in the afterlife.Inside the tomb, archaeologists wearing white masks and latex gloves inspected the sarcophagi, which were covered with intricate drawings in red, blue, black, green, and yellow, and featured the carved faces of the dead.The coffins were mainly well-preserved, though some had deteriorated and broken over the years.Mummy The Valley of The Kings Source: DPA/PA ImagesArcheologists were also examining a mummy wrapped in linen which was inside one of the coffins.White, orange, green, and patterned pots were also found in the tombs.“It is a T-shaped tomb (which) consists of an open court leading into a rectangular hall, a corridor and an inner chamber,” the ministry said in a statement.A nine-metre shaft inside the tomb held the Ushabti figurines, as well as “wooden masks and a handle of a sarcophagus lid,” the ministry said.Another room in the tomb was also discovered, though it has not yet been completely excavated, it said.Nevine el-Aref, the spokeswoman for the antiquities ministry, said “there is evidence and traces that new mummies could be discovered in the future.”- © AFP, 2017Read: Remains of 3,700-year-old pyramid discovered in Egypt 27 Comments Short URL Image: SIPA USA/PA Images 23,451 Views Mummies and 1,000 statues found in search of 3,500-year-old tomb “This is an important discovery.” Apr 18th 2017, 2:41 PM Tuesday 18 Apr 2017, 2:41 PM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Uefa hit FAI with €10000 fine over tennis ball protest

Image: James Crombie/INPHO THE FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION of Ireland have been fined €10,000 by Uefa over last month’s tennis ball protest at the Aviva Stadium. The Euro 2020 qualifier against Georgia on 26 March was interrupted in the 33rd minute as some fans threw tennis balls onto the Aviva pitch in protest at the FAI. It was staged following prior revelations that then-CEO John Delaney had given the FAI a €100,000 bridging loan in April 2017 and had his €3,600-per-month rent paid for by the FAI during a period of time in which some staff suffered pay cuts. In the aftermath of the qualifier win against Gibraltar the previous Saturday it was announced that Delaney had assumed a new role, entitled Executive Vice-President, following a review conducted by Jonathan Hall Associates. Uefa’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body today confirmed that they have fined the FAI €10,000 for the “throwing of objects” onto the pitch. There has been considerable upheaval in Irish football since the protest, with John Delaney stepping aside from his role pending an FAI investigation. Honorary treasurer Eddie Murray and Honorary Secretary Michael Cody have resigned, with the rest of the Board intending to step down at the AGM in July. The crisis-hit Association have had their State funding withheld by Sport Ireland for failing to disclose fully the details of the 2017 loan, are subject to an investigation by the Office for the Director of Corporate Enforcement, and are also engaged in reviews by Grant Thornton and Mazars – the latter extensive and set to look into issues including credit card spending and third-party transactions. When asked earlier this week whether further protests would be a consequence of this upheaval, Irish manager Mick McCarthy responded by making reference to the initial tennis ball protest. “Has that not already had its consequences, that one? Was that what the protest was about? It would appear to me that the consequences are that things are changing.”Gavan Casey and Murray Kinsella are joined by Andy Dunne to get stuck into last weekend’s Champions Cup semi-finals.: Friday 26 Apr 2019, 5:48 PM Uefa hit FAI with €10,000 fine over tennis ball protest The European governing body’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body were watching events at Lansdowne Road last month.

Protected disclosure made by David Taylor essentially a work of fiction lawyers

first_img Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Short URL Image: Leah Farrell via RollingNews.ie No Comments Share6 Tweet Email David Taylor Image: Leah Farrell via RollingNews.ie David Taylor https://jrnl.ie/4097295 center_img 13,599 Views By Gerard Cunningham Jun 28th 2018, 3:57 PM Updated Jun 28th 2018, 6:50 PM THE PROTECTED DISCLOSURE made by former garda press officer Superintendent David Taylor “is essentially a work of fiction”, lawyers for An Garda Síochana have told the Disclosures Tribunal.Shane Murphy SC was speaking during his closing submission to the tribunal, which is examining allegations from Taylor that he was directed to brief negatively against garda whistleblower Sergeant Maurice McCabe.Former commissioner Martin Callinan denies giving any such direction, and his then deputy Nóirín O’Sullivan denies she was aware of such a direction.“There is no substantiated evidence that Mr Callinan or Ms O’Sullivan instructed or directed any such effort on Superintendent Taylor’s part to malign Sergeant McCabe, or that either were aware of any such effort,” Murphy told Justice Peter Charlton, the tribunal chairman.Murphy said that Superintendent Taylor’s 2016 protected disclosure was “essentially a work of fiction”, and the chairman should find that the allegations that Superintendent Taylor was directed to negatively brief against Sergeant McCabe were untrue.“We say that such a finding, if made, will serve the public interest in establishing how a mere allegation can become the received truth at enormous cost to the individuals involved and at enormous cost to our society,” Murphy said.“It will also serve the public interest in at least partially addressing the substantial harm to the reputation and professional standing of former commissioner Callinan and former commissioner O’Sullivan,” Murphy said.Murphy said that the tribunal had shown the ease with which allegations of misconduct could gain public traction, but a different picture emerged when they were tested in evidence under oath.“What has emerged from the evidence is a very different picture to what was contained in the allegations in the protected disclosure,” Murphy said.Murphy said that Superintendent Taylor’s credibility was “effectively shattered”.Counsel said that the existence of a rumour in 2014 did not of itself ground an inference that it must have been spread in a deliberate way by Superintendent Taylor, and some journalists said they heard rumours as early as 2011 before Superintendent Taylor became press officer.Murphy said that Superintendent Taylor was upset, angry and bitter at being moved from his role in the garda press office.‘Unworthy of trust’Meanwhile, a barrister representing RTÉ told the Disclosures Tribunal that Superintendent Taylor’s account of his dealings with journalists was “unworthy of trust”.Journalists John Burke and Paul Reynolds had reputations built up over decades, and there was “simply no evidence to support adverse findings against them”, Sean Gillane SC said on behalf of RTÉ.Both journalists deny allegations made by Taylor that he negatively briefed them about McCabe.Gillane said nobody had pointed to a syllable of Burke’s journalism to suggest he was party to any alleged smear campaign of McCabe, and reports by Reynolds about McCabe were “a textbook example of journalism at work”.Gillane said that email records showed that there were extensive editorial discussions before broadcast about the contents of news reports Reynolds made on a leaked copy of the findings of the O’Higgins Commission of investigation.The O’Higgins Commission looked at complaints made by McCabe about policing in the Cavan-Monaghan district. Gillane submitted that there was no evidence of any external interference or briefings in relation to the reports from Garda HQ.Gillane also said there was no reason why journalist Philip Boucher-Hayes would make up an encounter with former commissioner Martin Callinan. The journalist said that before a Crimeline programme in December 2013, Callinan told him McCabe had done “the worst kind of things”.Counsel said that Boucher-Hayes had volunteered his evidence after the chairman called on anyone with information to come forward, and had reported to colleagues what Callinan had told him shortly after the event occurred.Pattern of behaviourEarlier, Darren Lehane BL said that the meeting between Boucher Hayes and Callinan was relevant to his client, John McGuinness TD, as it showed a pattern of behaviour.Lehane said the tribunal chairman was entitled to consider the evidence of other witnesses about encounters they had with Callinan on 24 January 2014. In particular, Lehane referred to a brief meeting between Callinan and comptroller and auditor general Seamus McCarthy.McGuinness told the tribunal that on 23 January 2014 after a Public Accounts Committee (PAC) meeting, Callinan told him McCabe “fiddles with kids”.McGuinness said that at a meeting in a Dublin hotel car park the following day, Callinan also said that there were investigations into abuse allegations against McCabe.Lehane said that the fact that similar remarks were reported by Seamus McCarthy, the comptroller and auditor general, showed a pattern of behaviour by Callinan.Callinan was “desperate” to stop McCabe before appearing at the PAC, Lehane said. He submitted his client, McGuinness’s, evidence was supported by a near-contemporaneous note he made after the meeting, and by similar accounts of meetings given by other witnesses.The barrister said that Callinan’s claims that two witnesses would raise the same issue in an identical manner, that he would would respond in a near identical manner, and never make a record of those “unusual” conversations anywhere were not credible.Lehane said his other client, journalist Ann Harris, was subjected to attacks on her character and threatened with defamation proceedings and suggestions she was motivated by bitterness or a grudge.Michael O’Higgins SC, on behalf of David Taylor, said that of 12 journalists his client had nominated who would support his evidence, 10had “confirmed in stark terms they did not receive any such briefings, and two of the journalists weren’t willing to comment”.Taylor claims that he was directed to negatively brief journalists about McCabe by Commissioner Callinan, and that his deputy Nóirín O’Sullivan was aware of the direction. Both former commissioners deny the allegations.O’Higgins said that it was either “an incredible coincidence” or there was something to Taylor’s evidence, as it matched closely the evidence of other witnesses about what they alleged Callinan said to them.“If he was a fantasist who just wanted to throw a spanner in the works, he was a very fortunate fantasist and he was a very lucky spanner thrower,” O’Higgins said.O’Higgins said that the tribunal could conclude that Taylor and Callinan “were working in tandem, rather than separately and in ignorance of each other”.He said that Taylor did “bear an animus” to O’Sullivan, and had incorrectly believed she was a driving force behind his arrest and attempts to discredit him during an investigation into garda leaks.O’Higgins said that Taylor’s evidence was capable of being believed, and it was up to the chairman to decide if it should be believed.Submissions continue tomorrow with Murphy, followed by barristers for Independent News & Media and Sergeant McCabe.

Theres More One Punch Man ComingIn The Form of Audio Dramas

first_img If you’re standing around patiently waiting for more One Punch Man, you’re probably in for a little more of a wait, unfortunately. There’s no need to despair, however. Even though there hasn’t yet been an update on when we can expect season 2, there’s a brand new bunch of content coming in the form of four new audio dramas based on the original anime series and the first season. They’re coming out later this year and will feature the voice actors from the series — the Japanese ones, of course.Announced via Bandai Visual, the One Punch Man dramas will be split into two episodes each, with series creator ONE overseeing and helping to create them. Reports slate the first audio CD as out in September 2017, with both actors for Saitama and Genos coming back to perform their roles once more. Every volume will come with an episode based on the bonus manga as well.For example, the first volume of the audio dramas will include an episode with story siphoned in from a skit from the first volume of the anime: the “200 Yen” skit. It’ll also come with brand new character songs for each character featured on the audio drama. Of course, all of the dramas will currently be in Japanese. Typically we don’t get a whole lot of translated audio dramas and historically the ones that release even for popular anime don’t often come to the west, but given how One Punch Man has taken the world by storm, maybe we can expect something a little more.In the meantime, you can always go back and watch the first season of the show or read more about it in the manga series that’s ongoing. It may not feel like much for now, but when that’s all you’ve got you’ve got to run with it.

MyFitnessPal Data Breach Hits 150M Users

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Raspberry Pi Used to Steal 500 MB of NASA DataNetflix Hacks Highlight What Could Be Stay on targetcenter_img Under Armour’s MyFitnessPal program is picking up the pieces after a recent data breach affected 150 million users.In late February, an “unauthorized party” reportedly hacked into the health-tracking service, stealing account usernames, email addresses, and hashed passwords.Fortunately, the exposed codes were scrambled using the bcrypt hashing algorithm, so they’ll be tough for the thieves to crack. Still, users are urged to change their MyFitnessPal credentials (and any other accounts using the same password) immediately.It does not appear any payment card data or government-issued identifiers (Social Security and driver’s license numbers) were filched.“Once we became aware, we quickly took steps to determine the nature and scope of the issue,” MyFitnessPal Chief Digital Officer Paul Fipps wrote in an announcement.“We are working with leading data security firms to assist in our investigation,” he assured. “We have also notified and are coordinating with law enforcement authorities.”The memo was released to the MyFitnessPal community on Thursday—four days after parent company Under Armour learned of the breach—via email and in-app messaging.“We take our obligation to safeguard your personal data very seriously and are alerting you about this issue so you can take steps to help protect your information,” Fipps said.Other recommendations include reviewing accounts for suspicious activity and remaining vigilant about any unsolicited communication asking for personal data. And, as ever, don’t click on links or download attachments from suspicious emails.MyFitnessPal also published additional security information and guidelines online, going as far as to suggest placing a “security freeze” on credit files to prevent fraudulent charges.There is no word yet on who carried out the attack.MyFitnessPal is a free smartphone app that tracks diet and exercise and uses gamification to motivate users and help them reach their health goal. Founded in 2005, the service was acquired by Under Armour in February 2015 for a reported $475 million.last_img read more

Their research was funded by NASA Planetary Astronomy grants NNX17AK35G and 80NSSC18K1006.Photo Credit: Roberto Molar Candanosa and Scott S. Sheppard/Carnegie Institution for ScienceThe team called 2018 VG18 “Farout,” due to its extremely distant location in the solar system. “Farout” is located at approximately 120 astronomical units (AU). One AU is equivalent to the space between Earth and the sun. Pluto, the furthest of the nine planets, is at roughly 34 AU, making “Farout” more than 3.5 times more distant than the dwarf planet. Meanwhile Eris, the second furthest object spotted in our solar system, is placed at about 96 AU.Extremely far space objects, such as “Farout,” could give clues to what’s happening on the edge of the solar system. The team hasn’t determined 2018 VG18’s orbit activity yet, so they can’t tell if its movements are potentially shaped by Planet X, a suspected planet that’s called “Planet 9” and is located really far from the sun.“All that we currently know about 2018 VG18 is its extreme distance from the sun, its approximate diameter, and its color,” Tholen said in the press release. “Because 2018 VG18 is so distant, it orbits very slowly, likely taking more than 1,000 years to take one trip around the sun.”Discovery image of 2018 VG18 “Farout” from the Subaru Telescope on November 10, 2018. (Photo Credit: Scott S. Sheppard/David Tholen)Discovery images of “Farout” were taken on November 10, 2018 at Japanese Subaru 8-meter telescope, which is located on Mauna Kea in Hawaii. When the team discovered “Farout,” it took multiple nights of observing to determine its AU distance. In early December, “Farout” was seen a second time at the Magellan telescope placed at Carnegie’s Chile-based Las Campanas Observatory.The Magellan telescope confirmed that “Farout” is the first solar system object seen beyond 100 AU. Its brightness revealed that it’s approximately 500km in diameter, making it a dwarf planet. “Farout” also has a pinkish color, which is connected to ice-rich objects.“This discovery is truly an international achievement in research using telescopes located in Hawaii and Chile, operated by Japan, as well as by a consortium of research institutions and universities in the United States,” Trujillo said in the press release. “With new wide-field digital cameras on some of the world’s largest telescopes, we are finally exploring our solar system’s fringes, far beyond Pluto.”More on Geek.com:Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo Reaches Space for the First TimeNASA’s Voyager 2 Probe Reaches Interstellar Space11 Stellar Gift Ideas for Space Enthusiasts Watch: Dolphin Leaps Feet Away From Unsuspecting SurferNASA Says 2 Asteroids Will Safely Fly By Earth This Weekend Stay on targetlast_img read more

Planning for 2019 NPRA oil lease sale begins as feds pursue opening

first_imgMap of 2018’s oil lease sale results for the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska. (Courtesy Bureau of Land Management) Led by ConocoPhillips, there are a growing number of oil projects in the federally managed chunk of the western North Slope. Roughly 1.6 million acres of the 22-million acre reserve are leased, according to the Bureau of Land Management, which oversees the area. The federal government is issuing its annual request for public input on what land should be available for oil leasing in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska. The Trump administration aims to hold the first oil lease sale for land in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge before the end of 2019. Some of that land is thought to have high oil potential. But environmental groups are worried because the land overlaps with valuable habitat for migratory birds and other species — namely, the area around Teshekpuk Lake. The Interior department is re-evaluating the management plan for the reserve, aiming to open up land that’s currently off-limits to oil leasing. But the last two oil lease sales in the reserve didn’t generate much interest. This year’s oil lease sale for the Reserve will be limited to the acreage that is currently available. The Bureau of Land Management is accepting public comments until July 22. But another federally managed area slated for oil leasing this year is likely to get a lot more attention. last_img read more

Trouble in paradise Whats happening in Maldives

first_img.The political crisis in the Maldives deepened this week after embattled president Abdulla Yameen declared a state of emergency and ordered the arrest of top judges and a former president.The upmarket holiday paradise does not often find itself in the news but a shock Supreme Court decision last week ordering the release of top opposition politicians has triggered a furious response from authoritarian ruler Yameen.How will the latest round of political strife play out in the Indian Ocean archipelago?What’s going on?Yameen, who came to power in 2013, has presided over an escalating crackdown on dissent that has battered the Maldives’ reputation. He has jailed almost all the political opposition.The Maldives was plunged into fresh chaos this week after the president refused to comply with the Supreme Court’s Thursday order to release nine dissidents and restore the seats of 12 legislators sacked for defecting from Yameen’s party.The Supreme Court ruling gives the opposition the majority in the assembly-meaning they could potentially impeach the president.In a stunning blow to the regime, it also paves the way for exiled former president Mohamed Nasheed-the first democratically elected leader who was controversially convicted of terrorism in 2015 — to return and run for president this year.On Monday, Yameen sent soldiers to storm the court and arrest judges, with Maldives police also detaining Yameen’s estranged half-brother and former president Maumoon Abdul Gayoom, who had sided with the main opposition.Hundreds of people gathered outside the court complex and police used pepper spray to disperse the crowds.Where do the security forces stand?The head of the armed forces is publicly backing Yameen.“The Maldives military will not standby and watch Maldives go in to a crisis,” military chief Ahmed Shiyam said Sunday, warning he would not obey “unlawful orders” from the Supreme Court.But as ex-president Gayoom-who ruled for 30 years until 2008 elections-was led out of his house, riot police saluted him, according to the local Maldives Independent website, and analysts have warned his arrest could split the security forces as he still commands deep respect.The emergency declaration gives sweeping powers to security forces to arrest and detain individuals, curtails the powers of the judiciary and bars parliament from impeaching Yameen.The opposition says it shows Yameen is “desperate” and Nasheed, who has previously expressed fears of unrest in the troubled Indian Ocean nation, said it amounted to imposing martial law.Yameen has drawn close to China and Saudi Arabia during his time in office, with both countries investing heavily in the tiny tourist archipelago in the Indian Ocean, and may feel he has enough support to weather the storm.How did we get here?Mohamed Nasheed became the country’s first democratically elected president in 2008 and swiftly became an international celebrity because of his urgent pleas to address climate change. He held a cabinet meeting underwater to highlight the low-lying archipelago’s plight.The country has been locked in a slow-burn political crisis since Yameen won a controversial run-off against Nasheed in 2013 presidential elections.During his time in power “President Yameen has systematically alienated his coalition, jailed or exiled every major opposition political figure, deprived elected Members of Parliament of their right to represent their voters… revised laws to erode human rights (and fired) any officials who refuse orders,” the US State Department said.What about the tourists?The tensions have already hurt the tourism industry-the largest contributor to the country’s economy-despite government assurances that visitors are safe.China-the number one source of tourists for the Maldives-and neighbouring India have already warned their national to defer all non-essential travel, and the UK and the US have warned their nationals to exercise caution in Male.In 2015, when the government declared a state of emergency because of fears of terrorism, tourist booking plummeted which hit economic growth hard.Nearly 1.4 million foreigners visited the Maldives last year, up from 1.28 million the previous year.What happens next?All eyes are on the security forces to see what will happen now that Gayoom is in detention, and whether further street protests will break out despite the state of emergency.Nasheed has already said he will run again in elections scheduled for this year and has called for regional super power India to intervene.Yameen, who has previously faced several unsuccessful opposition attempts to impeach him for alleged corruption, looks determined to fight off all challenges to his ruleOpposition legislators have also called on the international community to pressure Yameen.last_img read more

AI Could Give Millions Online Legal Help But What Will the

first_img(Credit: BuffaloBoy/Shutterstock)So, you just got a parking ticket. Let’s assume it wasn’t the first. And let’s take that a step further and say that you absolutely, positively, do not want to pay it, or think you should, for that matter.Or let’s say you’re in a more serious situation – you’re planning to file for divorce. You might not be able to afford an expensive attorney, or maybe you just flat-out don’t know where to start with the legal process.Thanks to a small but growing crop of law-savvy chatbots, you can now employ an AI-powered guide to help fight your legal battles without even setting foot in a law firm.The technology could revolutionize the process of getting legal assistance. But the use of these bots falls into a gray area that has challenged experts for decades. Although the bots themselves are relatively new to the industry, the arguments over who – or what – can assist in the legal sphere is far from a new case.Droids on the DefenseDuring his undergraduate years at Stanford University, Joshua Browder racked up at least a dozen parking tickets, many of which he fought.“I was writing the same appeals over and over again,” Browder says. As a programmer, he knew there must be an easier way to fight these charges without having to go through the same process every time.So, he created an app he called DoNotPay to do the grunt work. The app asks a handful of questions and looks for keywords that help it parse the particulars of your legal quandary. Then it uses that information to help guide you through the tangles of forms and clauses that make up our legal system.AI-powered chatbots, including DoNotPay, use machine learning algorithms, which can mimic the conversational back-and-forth of a human. The bots are fed relevant data that they draw patterns from. Then, they get positive affirmation for correct decisions to inform future interactions. So, when an algorithm-powered bot is conversing with you, it’s drawing on thousands, or likely millions, of similar exchanges to guide its decisions.DoNotPay launched in 2018 and is dubbed “the world’s first robot lawyer,” according to its App Store description. “Sue anyone at the press of a button,” it proclaims.And it doesn’t just deal with parking appeals — the app offers to assist with government paperwork, tackle customer service disputes and even find “hidden money” by cancelling subscriptions and appealing bank fees. Browder plans to expand the app to help users apply for Green Cards and file for divorce as well. But Browder won’t be the first to bring AI to the realm of divorce law. California lawyer Erin Levine is already doing it.In addition to being a certified family lawyer at a firm in Emeryville, Levine is the founder and CEO of Hello Divorce, a website that employs AI and chatbot technologies to lead Californians through their legal options in the divorce process.Nearly 92 percent of Levine’s clients through Hello Divorce navigate the online forms without human assistance, she says. Humans specialists are on call to help with the tough stuff, especially when a client struggles with the emotional aspects of divorce. But for the most part, the bot has proven to be a savvy substitute.California has the highest estimated cost of divorce in the country, at over $17,000 per case (having kids in the mix would boost your bill to around $26,000). Assuming you make at least the median household income in the state – around $63,000 per year – a divorce would suck approximately one-fourth to one-third of your annual income out of your pocket.Hello Divorce says its aim is to bring that cost down to $1,500 per case. Plus, having an automated system makes it easier to serve more clients in a larger area.Levine’s new tech has caused a buzz among lawyers and attracted media coverage. But as an early adopter of AI, Levine says the uncertainties surrounding its reception by the public and broader legal community keep her up at night.“Law is one of the last industries to be truly disrupted,” she says.Having software that helps fill out forms is nothing new. You can file taxes electronically and your web browser can autofill stored information when you visit a site frequently. But when AI steps in to help you figure out which forms to fill, things can get messy in the legal world.Bar-certified Chatbots?What exactly does it mean to practice law? It’s not an easy question. Lawyers have grappled with the definition for decades, and every state has its own variation of the specifics.In general, the practice of law in the United States also encompasses giving legal advice. Paralegals and non-bar certified workers in law firms can help people fill out paperwork, but they cannot give a client advice on what they should do regarding a case.So if an AI-automated bot tells you to fill out a certain form or asks you questions to better understand your case, is that considered giving legal advice?That’s a question for Tom Martin, a lawyer with 20 years experience and founder of the company LawDroid, a technology service that makes chatbots for legal firms and services across the country. He was inspired by Browder’s DoNotPay app to start a chatbot company exclusively for lawyers. And now he helps Levine, among other clients, manage sites like Hello Divorce.To Tom, chatbots aren’t doing the work entirely on their own – lawyers and law experts are always behind the scenes to create and service these bots. Even with the implementation of machine learning, the basic principles, ideas and ethics of law still require a human mind.“Machines can’t practice law,” he says. “The practice of law, to me, it requires human judgement.”Martin sees this tech as a way to make legal services accessible to a wider group of people who may not be able to afford a lawyer in the first place. It’s estimated that the average legal budget is less than $250 per individual in the U.S. With that kind of money, it would be incredibly difficult to hire a lawyer from a traditional firm.Challenging the Status QuoThere’s the classic argument that robots are coming to steal jobs – but the adopters who are implementing this tech into their businesses don’t think it will cause a complete robot takeover.“There’s lots of good lawyers, I don’t think AI will be on the supreme court anytime soon,” Browder says. But he could see it potentially replacing smaller firms, like ones that specialize in injury law.The legal industry is also gaining the attention of some big-time tech CEOs, like Justin Kan, co-founder of Twitch. Since launching his legal startup, Atrium, in 2017, Kan raised $75 million and 400 clients to kickstart the venture. On Thursday, Atrium announced the launch of its first consumer-facing products, which use machine learning to file and organize legal documents.For now, Martin and LawDroid will continue to build bots for interested lawyers around the country. But as this tech continues to grow in popularity, Martin says it will inevitably reshape the industry.“It changes it, and if anything it grows the pie,” he says. “If anything, I think it creates more jobs in the end.”New types of jobs, that is. If chatbots continue to grow in popularity, there will be a need for workers who have knowledge of more than just the law. But optimists like Martin say we’re just at the beginning of bringing bots to the legal sphere, and legal knowledge to our fingertips.last_img read more

The effects of chemical substances on the body are studied to choose a potential drug candidate during the development of newer molecules. Early toxicity testing is carried out at preclinical stages of a drug development process and is essential as toxicity serves as the major reason for the failure of potential drug candidates in the later stages of drug development leading to huge financial loss to companies. Moreover, companies perform early toxicity testing to comply with the government standards to market the drug. Early toxicity testing can be performed using different techniques such as in vivo, in vitro, and in silico. These techniques are employed to carry out different toxicity tests such as ocular toxicity, carcinogenicity, systemic toxicity, and others.
