first_imgUne nouvelle arme pour éviter la propagation de la dengueD’après les travaux réalisés par des chercheurs australiens et américains, il serait possible de combattre la dengue en parasitant les moustiques de l’intérieur. Ils deviendraient ainsi incapables d’héberger et de transmettre le virus responsable de cette maladie.Des chercheurs australiens avaient déjà fait part dans la revue Science, en 2009, de travaux qui leur avaient permis d’inoculer une souche bactérienne à des moustiques et de diviser de moitié leur espérance de vie (de un mois à deux semaines). Cette fois, les scientifiques australiens et américains ont pratiqué des expériences consistant à ensemencer des moustiques Aedes aegypti, vecteurs du virus de la dengue, avec une bactérie inoffensive de la mouche du vinaigre. À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?Les résultats, publiés par Nature, indiquent qu’il est possible d’obtenir une transmission maternelle élevée de cette bactérie, donnant ainsi naissance à une génération incapable d’héberger le virus de la dengue. Mais pour favoriser cette propagation à travers les générations de la population d’insectes, les chercheurs, dirigés par le Pr Scott O’Neill de l’université de Queensland, ont dû utiliser une souche moins virulente de la bactérie Wolbachia. Prolifération massive des moustiques infectésAinsi, des essais grandeur nature ont été réalisés dans deux zones du Queensland, en Australie, où des dizaines et des dizaines de milliers de moustiques infectés avec cette bactérie ont été largués dans la nature. Les premiers retours suggèrent que les moustiques introduits dans l’environnement local se sont développés au point de représenter à présent 100% de la population à un endroit et 80% dans l’autre. Cette approche a donc permis de remplacer la population naturelle des moustiques Aedes par une autre, résistante au virus de la dengue et donc incapable de transmettre cette maladie virale aux humains.C’est un réel espoir pour les plus de 100 pays du monde où le paludisme et la dengue sont de véritables fléaux, d’autant qu’aucun traitement spécifique ne permet de lutter contre ces maladies, rappelle TV5monde. Selon les estimations de l’Organisation mondiale de la santé, 50 millions de personnes sont infectées chaque année, et 500.000 d’entre elles, surtout des enfants, développent la forme hémorragique qui tue dans au moins 2,5% des cas.Le 25 août 2011 à 17:17 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

first_imgFollowing the call for a break-up and reorganization of McGraw-Hill Cos. by investors last month, McGraw-Hill announced today that it will split into two separate public companies: McGraw-Hill Markets, focused on the capital and commodities markets, and McGraw-Hill Education, focused on education services and digital learning. McGraw-Hill Markets will be led by Terry McGraw as chairman, president and CEO and will include the company’s publishing assets serving construction and aviation, as well as Standard & Poor’s, S&P Indices, S&P Capital IQ, which provides research and multi-asset class data, and Platts, which serves the energy, petrochemical and metals markets. McGraw-Hill says it expects McGraw-Hill Markets to generate $4 billion in 2011, with 90 percent of revenue coming from the capital and commodities businesses. McGraw-Hill Education will become an independent business serving the K-12, higher education and professional education markets, with expected revenues of $2.4 billion in 2011. Longtime McGraw-Hill CFO Robert Bahash currently oversees McGraw-Hill Education and the company is searching for a new CEO for the group. The move is part of a three-part “growth and value plan” that include creating the two pure-play companies; extension cost reduction focusing on more than $1 billion in corporate expenses including disaggregating shared services and establishing two corporate centers, and share repurchases totaling $1 billion in 2011 (the company says it has repurchased $540 million shares to date). McGraw-Hill shares were up 2.6 percent to $39.7 in premarket trade. Investors including hedge fund Jana Partners LLC and the Ontario Teacher’s Pension Fund had previously said breaking up McGraw-Hill would increase value for shareholders. The split will be treated as a tax-free spinoff of the education business for McGraw-Hill shareholders. McGraw-Hill expects the move to be complete by the end of 2012. Through the first six months of 2011, McGraw-Hill saw a 7.4 percent increase in revenue to $2.86 billion and a 12.5 percent increase in net income to $340.1 million. The McGraw-Hill Information and Media Group posted a 10 percent jump to $473.5 million in the first half of the year.last_img read more

first_imgA rendering of the new JPSS-1 satellite. (Image courtesy of NOAA)The federal government is scheduled to launch a new satellite later this month that will improve weather forecasts. JPSS-1 is a polar orbiting satellite that tracks dozens of things like temperature, moisture, snow cover and even wildfires.Listen nowBrian Brettschneider, with our Ask a Climatologist segment, is eagerly awaiting the new images and data from the new satellite.He says it will orbit pole-to-pole, crossing the equator 14 times each day.Interview Transcript:Brian: And that provides, at any given location, at least two snapshots per day of what’s going on in the atmosphere at that location.Annie: Why is that important, especially for the far north?Brian: Many people are familiar with seeing satellite images, say of hurricanes, we saw that a lot this summer. And those come from geostationary satellites. They’re orbiting at 22,500 miles above the equator and they circle the earth at the same rate the earth rotates. But they have to be over the equator. So here at Alaska/Arctic latitudes, we’re out of the range of those satellites. Maybe in Southeast, they’re caught a little bit, but north of 60 degrees, which is mainland Alaska, we’re not in that. So we rely on other satellite imagery, geosynchronous orbit and some other satellites that don’t catch us as frequently and when we’re at an oblique angle. So having something that rotates a couple times a day, that’s going to get us higher resolution information is very important for forecast modeling and environmental modeling.Annie: This isn’t just about forecasts. How do satellites help inform policy?Brian: The first weather satellite was launched in 1966. We use that as a benchmark for environmental monitoring, whether it’s for hurricanes, whether it’s for sea ice, whether it’s for ozone. All these things we assume we have this long, robust record for, but before the satellite era for many things it was very fragmented. We have records for coastal sea ice going back a long way. We have records of hurricanes striking the lower 48 a long time ago. But we don’t have this uniform distribution across space until we have satellites. So a lot of the decisions we make from a public policy standpoint that involve environmental and earth science data, really we start with the satellite era. And as we get better and better satellite imagery, we have more information to make good public policy decisions.Annie: Are you looking forward to seeing these first images?Brian: It’s kinda like being a kid in a candy store. There’s all kinds of fascinating information that you can see from it. From the first generation satellite that’s out there, from events where we have strong northerly cold outbreak, you can see silt blowing off of glaciers, you can see ash being blown off volcanoes, previously deposited ash, so there’s always something new and fascinating that you’ve never seen before when there’s a new generation satellite that’s launched.last_img read more

Chinese media reports said last week that Zhou delivered the nine-year-old girl to Wang after bringing her to Shanghai Disneyland from another province, after which Wang allegedly paid Zhou. The girl later told her mother that she had been molested, leading to the detention of Wang and Zhou, according to the reports. Advertise With Us Chinese web users expressed outrage when a posting began circulating online, purportedly from a Shanghai public affairs official, instructing media outlets not to report on the case. China’s media is tightly controlled by the government, which routinely censors or squelches news that could embarrass authorities or well-connected figures. Seazen and other companies controlled by Wang are involved in property development and management. Seazen Holdings said Wang had been replaced as chairman of the company. According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Wang’s fortune has dropped from USD 6.6 billion to USD 4.5 billion since last Tuesday, after the reports of suspected child molestation emerged.last_img read more

first_imgThousands of tourists visit Saint Martin`s Island everyday. Photo: Khaled SarkerFor over a thousand years Saint Martin’s island has existed in the Bay of Bengal, some 38 km off the coast of Teknaf. In 1999 the government of Bangladesh declared this as an Environmentally Critical Area (ECA), barring any sort of activity that may harm the water, air or soil of the island.But no one is following the rules.Teknaf upazila is about 80 km from Cox’s Bazar. From there it takes about three or four hours by trawler or ship to reach Saint Martin’s Island. And then the crass commerciality begins.As you step onto the island, a cycle van will offer you a ride to a hotel for an exorbitant fare. The hotel too is overpriced, though the service leaves much to be wanted.And wherever you go on the island, there is trash strewn around everywhere – plastic bottles, polythene bags and more.A stench pervades all over this island, 4 km in length and about two km in breadth. This lone coral island of the country also runs rife with stray dogs. And the pollution is overpowering.The ministry for forests, environment and climate change last December called for an inter-ministerial meeting to discuss what can be done to save Saint Martin. It was decided that less tourists would be allowed access to the island and no one would be permitted to spend the night here. Certain times during the year would be fixed for tourists. But none of these plans have worked out and the island teems with tourists.Secretary of the forest, environment and climate change ministry, Abdullah Al Mohsin Chowdhury, speaking to Prothom Alo in June, said that they have held several inter-ministerial meetings regarding the island and within a couple of months they will hold a final meeting with the principal secretary of the prime minister’s office.Read More: Development frenzy hits Maheskhali hardThere are 68 varieties of coral on the island, according to the latest survey of the department of environment, carried out last year. The island is also home to a variety of crabs, moss, snails, shells and clams.There are over 100 types of birds and five species of dolphins. Sometimes whales are sighted too. The island is covered with coconut trees.Professor of biology at Jahangirnagar University, Munirul H Khan, is carrying out research on Saint Martin’s island. He told Prothom Alo that in Bangladesh, the grey heron can only been found on this island, that too only on the southern part where there is live coral.Professor Munirul said that whatever little resources there are left on this island are on the verge of extinction due to unplanned tourism. The coral is being damaged by the frequent coming and going of ships. The coral walls are covered in polythene, plastic and other trash and are dying.Plastic bottles strewn all over Saint Martin`s Island. Photo: Prothom AloTourists have recently started going all over the island on bikes and motorbikes, taking pollution to the remote ends of Saint Martin, he added.Our last visit to the island was in December where we saw a little living coral on its Chhera Isle. The older inhabitants said that there is hardly any coral on the island anymore.Professor Munirul also said that sea turtles would lay their eggs where jetties have now been constructed. The turtles now lay their eggs here and there, but these too are devoured by the stray dogs. Even people gather the eggs and so turtles no longer come there like before.An international journal in 2016 stated that Saint Martin’s Island had 141 types of coral back in 1980, according to researchers. The four researchers, from Bangladesh, said that in 2016 there were only 41 types of coal left.Read More: ‘Kutubdia biodiversity in danger’Excessive coral collection and fishing had depleted the varieties of coral. Many of the hotels have decorated their entrances and walls with large chunks of coral.Fishing is the main source of income for many of the islanders. Turtles are caught in their nets too.There is a lack of clean drinking water on the island. That too is creating a crisis.Professor of biology at Chittagong University, Manzurul Kibria, speaking to Prothom Alo, said that that there was no groundwater source on the island. The groundwater was being depleted to meet the demands of the tourists and the inhabitants of the island.State minister for civil aviation and tourism Md Mahbub Ali told Prothom Alo that the hoteliers on the island had no idea about ecotourism. The government wants to evict such establishments and set up tourism facilities in specified areas.At the inter-ministerial meeting held last December, several short, mid and long term recommendations were made. It was said that tourists would be barred from visiting the Saint Martin’s Chhera isle. No more than two ships would be allowed to arrive per day and there would be a ban on cycles and motor cycles.Prothom Alo Info-graphRead More: Sonadia thrust into tourism tangleRandom disposal of plastic and polythene would also be restricted. No more land would be sold on the island and no more constructions would be permitted.It was also said that no tourists would be allowed on the island for at least three years. After that, they would only be allowed during the day.Only if such stringent measures were taken, would the coral island survive along with its rare animal life. Two officials of the environment department said, however, no action had been taken in this regard whatsoever.* This report appeared in the print version of Prothom Alo and has been rewritten in English by Ayesha Kabirlast_img

The content is provided for information purposes only. © 2015 Phys.org Mythbusters’ recap of pulling apart two interleaved phonebooks. “The extreme friction of the system is due to the operator,” the researchers explained. “The person, car, truck, or tank will amplify the friction arising from a tiny force acting on the outermost pages of the stack that may be no more than the weight of a butterfly.”The scientists explain that this tiny force on the outermost pages originates from the paper’s elasticity. The outer pages have a tendency to be flat, so they slightly resist being bowed, and bowing happens because twice as many pages must fit between the books’ spines. This friction force starts off small, but the pulling amplifies it exponentially.More evidence supporting this explanation comes from performing the experiment with two books in which every other page has been removed, so that interleaving results in completely flat pages. These books can be easily pulled apart.Although the researchers did not specifically investigate methods to separate the phonebooks, their results may offer some insight into efficient separation methods. (Phys.org)—Many people are familiar with the friction enigma of two interleaved phonebooks, in which all of the pages of two phonebooks are overlapped, one by one, with the books’ spines facing outward. Trying to separate the books by pulling on their spines is incredibly difficult due to the massive amount of friction between the pages. A Mythbusters episode showed that the interleaved phonebooks are strong enough to lift a car, and that nothing less than two military tanks can separate them (while tearing many of the pages). “One way may be to blow some air from the sides while gently pulling them apart,” coauthor Elie Raphaël at the École Supérieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles (ESPCI), Paris, told Phys.org.The interleaved phonebook demonstration is important because it is just one example of many interleaved assemblies, and these are found in many diverse areas: surgical sutures, adhesive proteins, and the interactions between DNA and viruses all involve friction through interleaving sheets of some sort. Another more familiar example is the way that a sailor can tie a large ship to a dock post simply by wrapping a rope around the post several times. The friction between the loops of rope creates such a strong connection that no ship can pull it loose, and pulling only makes it tighter. The results may also have applications for controlling the friction in micro- and nano- scale mechanical devices. According to a group of scientists who have studied this puzzle, many of the simple explanations of this demonstration are wrong. For instance, one explanation often given is that the weight of the pages pushing down on the pages below them is what generates the large friction force, but this explanation fails to explain why the demonstration works equally as well when carried out in the vertical or horizontal direction. Now a team of researchers, Héctor Alarcón, et al., from France and Canada have developed a model that reveals how the amount of force required to pull the books apart depends on the number of pages, the page thickness, and the overlapping distance. These relationships were determined by performing dozens of carefully controlled experiments on a vertical pulling device.This model confirms what has previously been suspected: the harder that a person, car, or tank pulls on the books, the higher the frictional resistance. The researchers compared this “self-induced friction amplification” effect to the Chinese finger trap toy: when you try to pull your finger out of the loosely wrapped braid, the braid tightens around your finger, making it even more difficult to get off.
