That is according to the assessment of 300 scientists in the summary document of the Scientific Assessment of Ozone Depletion 2014, published by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and the UN World Meteorological Organization (WMO). “International action on the ozone layer is a major environmental success story,” WMO Secretary-General Michel Jarraud said in a news release. “This should encourage us to display the same level of urgency and unity to tackle the even greater challenge of climate change.” The ozone layer, a fragile shield of gas, protects the Earth from the harmful portion of the sun’s ultraviolet rays, thus helping to preserve life on the planet.Its recovery, according to the scientists, is attributed to the collective action through the Montreal Protocol, which since 1987, has led countries to carry out policies to reduce and then phase out their use of ozone-depleting chemicals.Without the Montreal Protocol and associated agreements, atmospheric levels of ozone depleting substances could have increased tenfold by 2050, according to today’s report.“However, the challenges that we face are still huge. The success of the Montreal Protocol should encourage further action not only on the protection and recovery of the ozone layer but also on climate,” said UNEP Executive Director Achim Steiner.Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will host on 23 September at UN Headquarters in New York a summit in an effort to catalyze global action on climate change. “The Montreal Protocol community, with its tangible achievements, is in a position to provide strong evidence that global cooperation and concerted action are the key ingredients to secure the protection of our global commons,” Mr. Steiner added. Among the key findings of the report, the authors noted that what happens to the ozone layer in the second half of the 21st century will largely depend on concentrations of CO2, methane and nitrous oxide – the three main long-lived greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. The Scientific Assessment Panel is expected to present the key findings of the new report at the annual Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol, to be held in Paris in November 2014. The report will be issued early next year. read more
Can we just go ahead and pencil in a Clippers-Warriors playoff series? Please?— Kevin Pelton (@kpelton) November 1, 2013Paul and Curry engaged in a thrilling point-guard duel, with Paul dominating both on the stat sheet and on the scoreboard. Paul had one of the most impressive performances of his career, tallying 42 points, 15 assists and six steals while leading the Clippers to a 126-115 victory. Keep in mind it’s only the second game of the season.With Paul’s performance, he became the first player since 1973-1974 to put up 40 points, 15-plus assists and five-plus steals in a single game. He shot 12-for-20 and 16-for-17 from the free-throw line. Paul was so out of his head that he even dunked the ball on a fastbreak.Paul ultimately outplayed Curry but Curry had a pretty amazing game himself, scoring 38 points on 9-for-14 shooting and 9 assists. Curry’s problem was the 11 turnovers that were just careless errors and mental mistakes. Paul does deserve some credit, his hounding defense caused Curry to make uncomfortable decisions.Blake Griffin added 23-point and 10-rebounds. DeAndre Jordan snatched 17 rebounds while J.J. Redick and Jamal Crawford both poured in 17 points.For the Warriors, every single starter scored in double figures. David Lee had 22 points and Andre Iguodala dropped 14 points and 11 assists. Stephen Curry and Chris Paul put on a spectacular one-on-one show Thursday in the Staple Center that has some basketball fans calling for a Los Angeles Clippers-Golden State Warriors playoff series. read more

The recommendations tollow US trials which found that aggressively lowering the targets for blood pressure could reduce death risks among over 50s by almost one quarter.Nice is considering the same evidence, alongside other trials, such as one by Oxford University which found similar benefits.The watchdog is due to publish its new advice next year.Medication – which costs just pennies – includes ACE inhibitors, angiotensin-2 receptor blockers (ARBs), calcium channel blockers, diuretics and beta-blockers. Proposals to redefine “high blood pressure” and offer more patients medication could increase the risk of the condition, a new report suggests.The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Nice) is currently considering evidence which has led the US to change its advice, making millions more patients eligible for daily drugs to cut their heart attack risk.The criteria could mean almost half of Britons become eligible for drugs to reduce their blood pressure.But a report by the University of Sydney says such changes could put lives at risk – partly because a diagnosis of high blood pressure is likely to increase anxiety levels. Episodes of anxiety and stress can cause spikes in blood pressure.Other patients could see an increased risk from side-effects of medication, without a reduction in their risk of heart disease, their findings suggest.Currently, around seven million Britons whose blood pressure exceeds 140/90 are recommended to take blood pressure pills, with higher limits set for patients over 80.The drugs, which cost the NHS as little as 10 pence a day, are normally recommended for patients deemed to have a 20 per cent risk of heart disease or stroke within the decade.But the guidelines published by the American Heart Association bring the systolic threshold down to 130/80 – which is estimated to mean a 10 per cent chance over the same period. Most patients take at least two types of pills, but more aggressive targets could increase the number of different drugs recommended.However, the new study suggests other risks from a diagnosis of high blood pressure, and subsequent treatment, have not been properly considered.Lead author Dr Katy Bell said: “Labeling a person as having hypertension increases their risk of anxiety and depression, as compared to the risk for people with the same blood pressure who aren’t labelled as hypertensive. Second, it means more people may experience serious adverse effects from treatments,” she added.Researchers said that many people could end up wrongly diagnosed with high blood pressure because readings could vary significantly – meaning those who ususally had healthy levels could fall under the new criteria.

The report says 80 per cent of people with newly diagnosed hypertension under the US guidelines would get no expected benefit in terms of cardiovascular disease risk reduction by lowering their blood pressure.Eleven per cent would get a marginal benefit and nine per cent would get a larger benefit, the research estimates.In 2014, Nice controversially published advice which said anyone with a 10 per cent risk of developing heart disease in a decade should be offered statins, to guard against strokes and heart disease. The threshold means 40 per cent of adults are eligible for the drugs. read more

Le changement climatique, une menace pour les lapinsPlusieurs espèces de lapins sont menacées par le changement climatique et ses conséquences, comme l’augmentation du niveau des mers, celle des températures, ou la diminution des chutes de neige. Certaines sont même en danger d’extinction, affirme une étude menée par l’organisation Climate Nexus.Si l’on s’amuse souvent de la vitesse à laquelle les lapins prolifèrent, certaines espèces pourraient s’éteindre en raison du changement climatique, alerte l’organisation Climate Nexus, dont les travaux sont relayés par le Huffington Post.À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?Le niveau des mers, l’augmentation des températures, ou la diminution des chutes de neiges, sont autant de menaces pour les lapins vivant dans des environnements aussi variés que les volcans du Mexique ou l’archipel des Keys de Floride. Le lièvre d’Amérique et le lapin nain, notamment, utilisent la neige pour se protéger durant l’hiver, mais celle-ci a grandement diminué dans leurs habitats ces dernières années.Le pika, un cousin des lapins vivant dans un environnement alpin froid, pourrait être la première espèce d’Amérique du Nord à disparaître en raison du réchauffement climatique. Le WWF affirme en effet qu’il sera incapable de s’adapter à l’augmentation des températures, et aura de grandes difficultés à migrer à travers les régions chaudes de basse altitude.Quant aux lapins qui ne sont pas menacés par le réchauffement climatique, ils le sont par les fêtes de Pâques. De récentes études indiquent en effet que près de 80% des lapins abandonnés dans les refuges pour animaux ont été offerts pendant cette période de l’année.

Lionel Messi would be restored to Barcelona’s starting line-up in Sunday’s Catalan derby against Girona according to manager Ernesto Valverde.Messi, 31, failed to travel with the squad in the midweek loss to Sevilla in their Copa del Rey quarterfinal first leg.The Argentine’s absence raised a lot of eyebrows considering he made a cameo appearance in last week’s La Liga win over Leganes at Camp Nou.“It was a decision based on the coach’s criteria, who is the person who knows his players best,”“Valverde said in a news conference via ESPN on Saturday when asked why he had not started top scorer Messi in either of the last two matches. “I have to make those decisions.Mourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.“No one else has the data I have on my players. I do what is best for the player, for the team and for the club.”Valverde has challenged Malcom to earn a regular spot in the team with the Brazilian linked with a move away from Nou Camp.“We want him to have that continuity [of playing regularly] and to be a player that intimidates the opposition in the final third,” he said.“There are other players playing [in his position] but when he does play he has to try and win his place in the team so that it can’t be taken away from him.” read more

U.S. Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe, who swept into Vancouver on Tuesday to promote a service that predates the American Revolution, said he just wants to run an agency that is fiscally sound.But Donahoe, a 37-year veteran employee of the U.S. Postal Service and its 73rd postmaster general, has plenty of detractors, and some of them were outside the Hilton as he spoke to hundreds in the hotel’s ballroom. Charged with transforming the cash-strapped agency into a profitable enterprise, Donahoe has tightened the purse strings with hiring freezes, post office closures and a host of well-publicized, cost-cutting proposals such as eliminating the Saturday mail delivery and shutting down processing centers. He is looking for billions of dollars in savings.“It’s an institution that’s being dismantled right before our eyes,” charged James Cook, president of the Portland-area letter carriers’ union, which represents about 1,400 mail delivery workers.Cook attended Donahue’s talk as about 50 union members and supporters marched outside the speech venue, passing out “wanted” posters with an image of Donahoe as the postmaster spoke inside to firms that depend on the mailing industry. The fliers charged Donahoe with the “willful destruction of mail service,” among other charges. Tight security downtownDonahoe’s visit prompted high security measures, with Vancouver police on the scene and procedures that included a required press escort into the conference. U.S. Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe waits to speak at a convention at the Hilton Vancouver Washington on Tuesday. read more
Comments Tesla Model 3 barrels through the snow in Track Mode 50 Photos Now playing: Watch this: 6 2:47 Tags Enlarge ImageTesla’s Model 3 has had build quality issues in the past, but now they’ve allegedly caused the company to lose out on a lucrative 100-car sales deal. Elon Musk via Twitter German car-rental firm NextMove is backing out of a 100-car purchase deal with EV manufacturer Tesla after taking delivery of just 15 cars due issues with vehicle build quality, according to a report published Thursday by Bloomberg.NextMove planned to become the largest Tesla customer in Germany by purchasing 100 of Tesla’s Model 3 to use as part of its fleet, which also includes other Tesla models. The company decided to back out of the deal after the first 15 vehicles delivered by Tesla were allegedly plagued with quality-control issues.Among the issues exhibited by the initial batch of cars were problems with condensation inside the headlights, paint flaws and other issues. NextMove also alleges that Tesla tried to deliver vehicles that had been previously registered, something that it says would make the cars ineligible for Germany’s electric car tax incentives.The issue with VINs having been previously registered was, according to Tesla representatives, a “temporary system issue with VIN matching [that] has been corrected, and impacted customers were re-matched to new VINs.””The Model 3 is a fantastic car. Some of our customers totally fell in love with it,” said Stefan Moeller, owner of NextMove, in a statement to Bloomberg. “But the organization behind it doesn’t match that. It’s really sobering.”Tesla, being a relatively new manufacturer of vehicles, has been hard at work trying to overcome its quality control issues on all of its models, but its Model 3 has come under extra scrutiny in large part to the amount of hype surrounding it and its long, troubled ramp-up to full production.”We believe the customer’s decision wasn’t entirely due to quality issues, but was largely influenced by their frustration with an unrelated dispute from earlier in the year,” said Tesla representatives, in a statement. “Tesla was in the process of repairing the issues and had provided loaner vehicles to the customer at the time the order was cancelled. Still, the customer continued to place orders for additional Model 3s.”NextMove didn’t immediately respond to Roadshow’s request for comment.

Anchorage high school students who feel like their teachers really care about them are 50 percent less likely to drink. Young women in Alaska attempt suicide at twice the rate of young men. Those are just a few statistics being used to develop behavioral health solutions for Anchorage’s youth.Listen now:The data is captured by tools like the Youth Risk Behavior Survey and the National Survey on Drug Use and Health.Image courtesy of Anchorage Youth Development Coalition.Now, a coalition of youth-focused organizations in Anchorage is using that data to create behavioral health solutions. First, they are presenting some of the 67 pages of data to the community and getting their feedback on what they value the most.“We really want to make sure that our efforts are focused on issues that the community cares about and that it will make a difference,” says Deborah Williams with the Anchorage Youth Development Coalition.During a series of presentations, community members and youth have highlighted items like raising awareness of mental health issues for younger kids and helping young people deal with feelings like loneliness.Spirit of Youth executive director Karen Zeman says they want to find out the reasons for the numbers — why do young women tend to feel more sadness, hopelessness and stress than young men? Why is online bullying more likely to lead kids to drink than in-school bullying?“There have been a lot of wonderful programs in Anchorage for youth, but they haven’t necessarily been evidenced-based,” she says. “So what we’re trying to do is take a step back, figure out what the top priorities are, and then figure out what really will work to move the needle.”The data already confirm that some things have positive impacts, like young people who feel like they matter to others in their community are nearly 60 percent less likely to consider suicide.The coalition also includes Healthy Voices, Healthy Choices and is running the project development with funds from the state’s Division of Behavioral Health. They hope to have new programs focused on youth behavioral health by 2016.You can view a summary of all the data here. read more
RP Sanjiv Goenka Group chairman, Sanjiv Goenka addresses a press conference on Business Restructuring CESC to Focus Strongly on Verticals in Kolkata on May 18, 2017.IANSPower utility CESC Ltd, a flagship company of RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group, on Thursday announced a business restructuring scheme based on demerger of certain existing businesses.”This (the restructuring scheme) will lead to four entities focusing on generation, distribution, organised retail and other ventures,” Group Chairman Sanjiv Goenka said.All four entities will be listed with stock exchanges and the appointed date is October 1, he said.The business restructuring scheme aims to simplify the present corporate structure, Goenka said.He said that after the demerger, one company will house all the power generation which is now at 2,550 MW while CESC Ltd will handle power distribution business in Kolkata, Noida, Bikaner, Kota and Bharatpur catering to about 35 lakh consumers.According to him, the third entity will house Spencer’s and retail while the fourth company — CESC Ventures — will house non-power and retail businesses.The restructuring scheme will be subject to regulatory approvals.”This is a mirror-image demerger. Every shareholder of CESC will get shares of all these four companies. They will get same proportion of shares in each of the four companies,” Goenka said, adding that there will be no holding company.Post-restructuring, a CESC shareholder against every 10 CESC shares will have 18 fully paid shares in the resultant four companies — five shares each in the distribution and generation companies, six shares in the retail company and two shares in the company for other ventures.Speaking about the debt distribution, Goenka said CESC Ltd’s debts are very low. Whatever debt has been taken for distribution will go to the distribution company and whatever debt was taken for generation will go to the generation company.Spencer is debt-free, he said.He said two thermal power stations in Haldia and Maharashtra — each with 600 MW capacity — are in operation now.CESC Ltd’s net profit for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 stood at Rs 281 crore as compared to Rs 277 crore in the year-ago period.Its net profit for 2016-17 was at Rs 824 crore as against Rs 812 crore in the previous fiscal. read more

Globally celebrated Delhi-based artist and Padmashree awardee Paresh Maity has once again created a wonder in art.A 34-feet high, 20 feet long and 8 feet wide sculpture titled ‘Maihar’ is a marvel in steel and brass. It is an artistic tribute to Maihar –punya -bhoomi of the Maa Sharda shaktipeeth and the karmabhoomi of Ustad Allauddin Khan, musical maestro who founded the Maihar gharana of Hindustani classical music. “I invited Maity to install this sculpture to celebrate the 4th anniversary of Art Ichol.
