VENEZULA HAS ENTERED a bitter election race to succeed Hugo Chavez, with his chosen successor branding his challenger a “fascist” after the opposition candidate accused him of exploiting the late leader’s death.Henrique Capriles accepted the nomination of the main opposition coalition for the April 14 election, immediately launching a broadside against acting President Nicolas Maduro by accusing him of being “sick with power.”Chavez, whose socialist revolution divided his oil-rich nation, is casting a huge shadow in the election, with throngs of supporters flocking to see his body lying in state since Wednesday at a Caracas military academy.Maduro says the government will embalm Chavez’s body to be viewed “like Lenin” in a glass casket “for eternity.”“Now on top of it all, you are using the body of the president to stage a political campaign,” said Capriles, the energetic 40-year-old Miranda state governor.Glass casketAfter weeks of rumors about the president’s health, Maduro went on national television last Tuesday to announce the death of Chavez, telling that nation that the firebrand leftist had lost his two-year battle with cancer at the age of 58.“Nicolas lied to this country,” Capriles said, adding that the former vice president had been buying time during Chavez’s illness to prepare the election.He added: “Who knows when president Chavez died?”Chavez traveled to Cuba on 10 December for a fourth round of cancer surgery and was never heard from or seen in public again, apart from one set of photos. He returned to Caracas on 18 February but was never seen until his death.Maduro went on state-run television minutes after his rival’s press conference, standing in front of a picture of Chavez in military uniform as he accused his rival of trying to foment violence with “disgusting” accusations.Amid popular pressure to place Chavez alongside South American independence hero Simon Bolivar in the national pantheon, Maduro said he would propose a constitutional amendment to move him there to the legislature on Tuesday.The move would lead to a referendum in 30 days that could coincide with the presidential election. The body will first be moved on Friday to a military museum where Chavez plotted a failed coup in 1992.Farith Fraija, a political scientist and blogger, told AFP: “It’s not a race between Capriles and Nicolas Maduro. It’s a race between Capriles and Chavez.”Snap electionThe two candidates will register for the snap election on Monday.Capriles accused the government again of abusing its power and violating the constitution by swearing-in Maduro as acting president late Friday, arguing that he should have stepped down in order to run for office.Maduro has countered that the opposition conveniently misinterpreted the constitution and that his inauguration followed the wishes of his predecessor, who had asked the nation to elect him if he died.Chavez defeated Capriles by 11 points in the October presidential election, but Capriles gave the opposition its best result ever against the president, garnering 44 percent of the votes.A recent survey by pollsters Hinterlaces gave Maduro a 14-point advantage over Capriles, though the opposition leader has questioned the firm’s reliability in the past.Capriles, a youthful, energetic lawyer and runner, drew massive crowds during the last campaign, bringing hundreds of thousands of people to the streets of Caracas for a rally in the final stretch of the race.But Chavez was propelled to victory again thanks to his popularity among the nation’s once-neglected poor, who worshipped him for the oil-funded social program that brought them health care, housing and education. His expropriations and nationalizations of key industries, however, have riled the wealthy.The opposition accused Chavez of abusing state funds and dominating state-run media in his campaigns. – © AFP, 2013Read: Hugo Chavez will be embalmed ‘like Ho Chi Minh, Lenin and Mao’ >
With Tesla taking cars full electric, the race is on to generate as much “free” power as possible in gas guzzling vehicles in order to keep fuel use to a minimum. The latest innovation to generate such power comes from a surprising source: the exhaust fumes of a motorbike.Japanese company Atsumitec Co Ltd. has upgraded the exhaust on a motorbike to integrate both a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) and a thermoelectric conversion element. They are complemented by on board cells for storing the energy produced from the new setup.The exhaust power generation is a two-fold system. Firstly the SOFC uses any remaining hydrogen and carbon hydride from the exhaust fumes the motorbike expels to start a reaction and generate power. But the exhaust fumes are also very hot, maxing out at around 650 degrees Celsius, which is both required for the SOFC to work, but also allows the thermoelectric conversion element to generate further power. This is also complemented by the fact the reaction taking place in the SOFC generates a further 150 degrees of heat, all adding to the power the element can produce.Overall, the upgraded exhaust can pump out 200W of power that is then stored in the cells and used by the motorbike to power its on board systems.It’s certainly a clever idea, but how useful it turns out to be depends a lot on the cost of manufacturing them. If it’s relatively cheap then it’s possible this could become a feature of not just motorbikes, but any vehicle that expels exhaust fumes I’d imagine.
At least 80 buses packed with migrants were halted by the police on a major highway in Greece, about 10 kilometres before the borders with FYROM. On the FYROM side of the border, taxi drivers blocked the railway line in between the two countries, protesting over policemen giving priority to trains and buses taking the migrants to Serbia. Dozens of tractors lined up on the Greek side, complaining over the latest government pension reforms.The borders were closed for migrants and regular traffic was significantly delayed. Mostly women and children fleeing the war in Syria, the majority of male migrants had to disembark from the over-packed buses and sleep on the ground.Aid groups set about lighting camp fires and tents to accommodate the refugees, offering basic medical treatment, water and food.“It’s not possible to get all these people into tents,” Sardar, an Iraqui refugee told 9News.“There aren’t enough facilities, so we spent the night on the ground.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has emphatically ruled out a move for Real Madrid playmaker Isco during the summer transfer window and congratulated Madrid for their win last Saturday.The Spain international is currently under contract at the Bernabeu until 2022 but has been constantly linked with a switch to the Premier League champions.Isco revealed prior to last weekend’s latest Champions League final success that he has no intention of joining an English club, however, and Guardiola insists that City is not tempted to make a move, according to ESPN.Speaking at an event for the Johan Cruyff Foundation, the Catalan simply stated:“When a team wins three consecutive Champions Leagues, four in five years, it’s because they’re a spectacular team,” Guardiola said.Report: City are stunned by Norwich George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Manchester City was stunned by Norwich City in todays Premier League clash.Much has been made in recent days of the potential impact of Aymeric…“The Champions League is a really, really tough competition — staying in it depends on a lot of things. If all these things are with you for three straight years, it’s because you’re in control of them.“The demonstration of that can be seen in Madrid after Liverpool’s equaliser. The next 10 to 15 minutes, when Liverpool were boosted by the equaliser, is when Madrid were at their best.“They control these knockout and one-off games and I take my hat off to them. To win three Champions Leagues in a row shows the quality of the team, the coach, the club … as for everyone else, try to make sure now they don’t win a fourth.”Isco has appeared 47 times in all competitions for Madrid this term, including in the 3-1 win over Liverpool in Kiev on Saturday.

The two legends will face-off in a special event in Saudi ArabiaTwitterMany are calling it the dream match, some fans a materialisation of their biggest wrestling fantasy, some can’t wait for it to happen. This event – the match between The Undertaker and Goldberg has been announced for June 7 as part of a special WWE event in Saudi Arabia.In 2017 Royal Rumble match, the two men had a face-off with the commentators exclaiming about how great that moment was. It lasted very shortly as The Deadman eliminated Goldberg a little later. There was no room for the story to develop as the angle between the latter and Brock Lesnar had to be taken to its conclusion at the following Wrestlemania.Not the best ideaNow the WWE has decided to make this much-anticipated contest actually take place. Alas, it’s at least 10 years too late! Goldberg’s hugely-promoted return to in-ring contest in 2016 turned out to be largely a dud. He barely wrestled at all in all the matches that he was part of. The best contest of that particular run with the company was the Wrestlemania match against Lesnar. Even that was merely an extended demonstration of the four signature moves of the two wrestlers.To expect Goldberg to be any better two years later would be ridiculous. It is clear that he is no longer able to sustain long matches. To make things worse, he would be up against a guy, who is also well past his prime – The Undertaker. The Deadman hasn’t been able to sustain long matches in the last couple of yearsJP Yim/GettyWhile the Phenom has been able to show more wrestling ability in recent years than Goldberg, it may simply be because of his continued presence in the business. But even his matches are becoming a pale shadow of what they used to be. The shortness of the Wrestlemania match between him and John Cena was mainly to ensure that Taker isn’t made to extend himself beyond his ability. But then, for some inexplicable reason, they made the legend take part in long matches, first against Triple H and then, a tag-team contest with Kane vs DX. Both of them were not the most inspiring.Considering the great history Undertaker has, it is painful to watch him compete in sluggish contests. To put it simply, even the Deadman has reached a point where he is not able to produce good matches. This explains why he missed a Wrestlemania for the first time since 2000.No great expectationsBut now both Goldberg and The Undertaker are being made to face off against each other. One can expect a young wrestler to put over one of the two in a way that makes the match watchable. But when both the wrestlers are of advanced age, what sort of contest can we expect?It is sheer injustice to the legacy of these two greats of the business to make them compete well past their prime. Their fans would love to remember them for their stupendous feats at the peak of their powers. To witness them as mere shadows of their former self struggling to put up a good contest would be sad and painful for everyone. But, WWE wants to encash every last drop of their wrestling ability and make them get back into the ring. This may be ‘good for business’ but not so for their legacy.
US president Donald Trump boards Air Force One after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, at Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi, Vietnam, 28 February 2019. Photo: ReutersUS president Donald Trump was hopeful Thursday of a resolution to an ongoing crisis between nuclear-armed rivals India and Pakistan which has ignited fears of an all-out conflict in South Asia.Trump, speaking at a press conference in Hanoi after a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, said he had had “reasonably attractive news from Pakistan and India”.The US has been “involved in trying to have them stop,” he told reporters.”We have some reasonably decent news… Hopefully that’s going to be coming to an end,” he added.The comments were his first since India and Pakistan both claimed to have shot down each other’s fighter planes after a rare aerial engagement in the skies over the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir early Wednesday, with Pakistan capturing one Indian pilot.The incident — the latest in a dangerous sequence of events between the two countries — sent tensions rocketing, as major world powers including China, the US and the UN urged restraint.New Delhi said it lost one fighter jet and a pilot was missing in action, later confirming he was in Pakistani custody. India also downed a Pakistani jet, the foreign ministry said.Pakistan claimed to have shot down two Indian jets and denied it lost any aircraft in the dogfight.Islamabad said its incursion across the heavily militarised border was in response to Indian warplanes bombing Balakot, well inside its territory, on 26 February.That attack was the “jaw breaking” response Indian prime minister Narendra Modi had promised after militants staged a suicide bombing in Indian Kashmir on 14 February, killing at least 40 paramilitaries.New Delhi blamed the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad for the attack, and hit what it called a training camp for the militants in its aerial raid 12 days later.The crisis has seen the US thrust into the familiar position of trying to defuse tensions, but American officials are making no secret of faulting Islamabad.US policymakers have grown exasperated with Pakistan for not doing more against Islamist extremists, and envision a broad, long-term alliance with an emerging India.
Scientists and historians have for years debated the possibility that lead poisoning was a contributing factor in the decline and fall of the Roman Empire—water carried from afar in aqueducts was directed into lead pipes for distribution in the empire’s capital city of Rome—leading to speculation that leaders had gone mad due to exposure in their drinking water. In this new effort, the researchers have concluded that while lead levels in the ancient drinking water were high, they weren’t high enough to have been a major health hazard, and thus, lead cannot be blamed for the demise of the empire.To ascertain lead levels during the time of the empire, the researchers retrieved sediment samples from two locations, the Tiber River, and the Trajanic Harbor—a man-made harbor located near the mouth of the Tiber. In analyzing the samples, the researchers were able to identify lead isotope concentrations at various depths, corresponding to different time periods. The analysis also provided clues as to the origin of the lead (other parts of Europe). They found that they were able to trace the history of the empire by noting lead levels. In the early years, lead levels were near to those of local spring water, but as time passed, levels increased dramatically as more and more lead pipes were used to transport water. Continuing forward, they found that lead levels fell along with the empire.The authors conclude that the amount of lead in the drinking water, while a concern, was not likely to have caused brain damage. Thus it’s unlikely that the poor decisions made by leaders of the time that led to fall of the empire can be blamed on lead poisoning, nor, as some have suggested, would it have led to an increase in crime throughout the city.

Ziadeh/Wikipedia More information: Lead in ancient Rome’s city waters, Hugo Delile, PNAS, 2014. DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1400097111AbstractIt is now universally accepted that utilization of lead for domestic purposes and water distribution presents a major health hazard. The ancient Roman world was unaware of these risks. How far the gigantic network of lead pipes used in ancient Rome compromised public health in the city is unknown. Lead isotopes in sediments from the harbor of Imperial Rome register the presence of a strong anthropogenic component during the beginning of the Common Era and the Early Middle Ages. They demonstrate that the lead pipes of the water distribution system increased Pb contents in drinking water of the capital city by up to two orders of magnitude over the natural background. The Pb isotope record shows that the discontinuities in the pollution of the Tiber by lead are intimately entwined with the major issues affecting Late Antique Rome and its water distribution system.

Central Motorway Police Group took over policing the D-road in the summer after 26 fatal crashes in 10 years. There have since been several operations to catch those ignoring the limit to improve safety. In total, 877 drivers have been clocked on the dual carriageway with another 680 on Staffordshire’s motorways, including the M6 and parts of the M54. Officers regularly monitor the 50mph zone between Junction 15 for the M6 and Etruria and the national speed limit section from Etruria towards Junction 16. Some motorists have been recorded travelling in excess of 80mph on a 50mph stretch of the dual carriageway with one notching more than 90mph in the 50mph zone.

Group A consisted of symptomatic patients who had residual structural lesions suspicious for recurrent tumor after initial therapy. Group B comprised patients with pulmonary or hepatic metastases that were potentially operable. These results were compared with findings from conventional imaging (such as computed tomography or CT), and participants were followed for 12 months.”Designed with an evidence-based approach, this study confirmed the important role PET plays in the decision-making process of patients with colorectal cancer and the impact of PET on both the management and outcome of disease,” said Andrew M. Scott, M.D., director of the Centre for PET and the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, Austin Hospital, Melbourne, Australia. “These results are compelling and indicate that PET should be made more widely available to patients.”Based on the extent and progression of disease revealed by the scans, treating physicians changed the planned management in more than 65 percent of patients in group A and nearly 50 percent in group B. The researchers also found additional disease sites in 48 percent of group A and 44 percent in group B, providing valuable prognostic information about patients that allowed their stratification into curative or palliative groups.”PET was able to identify those patients who had potential for long-term, progression-free survival and even a potential cure,” said Dr. Scott. “Just as important, it identified those patients with aggressive disease, enabling them to avoid unnecessary treatment, such as surgery.”In the U.S., imaging results from PET scans have also changed clinicians’ decisions in the treatment and care of more than one in three cancer patients, according to data collected by the U.S. National Oncologic PET Registry (NOPR).The registry “which was formed at the request of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)” has found that PET prompted changes in care decisions in 36.5 percent of patient cases. The study has to date included over 23,000 patients in more than 1,200 PET facilities nationwide. NOPR study data are collected through a clinical registry and provided to CMS to help determine levels of reimbursement for cancer indications not currently covered. CMS is currently reviewing the data to determine what additional types of cancer may be eligible for coverage.”This data should encourage molecular imaging practitioners to engage with referring physicians early in the process of cancer treatment,” added Dr. Scott. “It is clear that PET had a significant impact for these patients and could be an indispensable part of the standards of care for oncologists.”For more information: www.snm.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Figure 1.

Greek Tourism Industry Could SufferThroughout the summer months Greece is one of Europe’s highest-ranking tourist destinations, with travellers from across the continent visiting the popular holiday location. With tourism as Greece’s number one source of income travel search engine GoEuro (www.GoEuro.com) recognise the importance of understanding European perceptions of the current economic and political situation, and whether it would affect potential tourist’s plans to visit. We polled 22,500* Europeans to better understand the effect this may have on visitor numbers.Countries less affected by economic crisis in recent years are more deterred by Greece’s current situation The perception of Greece in countries such as the UK, France, Germany or the Netherlands seemed to be more negative due to the current situation, whilst countries which were more disturbed by the Europe-wide economic crisis – which began in 2008 – appeared to have less of a negative view of Greece as a tourist destination. 72% of Germans who travelled to Greece in the last five years revealed that the financial/political situation affected their perception of the country in a negative way. Spaniards on the other hand were less likely to view the situation so negatively, with up to 93% stating that it did not affect their perception of Greece. Main Tourist markets less likely to visit Greece The negative perception has also affected the willingness of several important tourist markets to visit Greece. Holiday-makers from Germany, France and the UK who have already visited in the past five years are now less likely to revisit due to the current situation. Nevertheless other European nationalities revealed the situation wouldn’t affect plans to visit and in the case of visitors from Spain it could even motivate revisiting.Furthermore a similar pattern of negative perception is seen in those travelers who haven’t visited Greece recently, with more emphasis from Spaniards, Italians and Portuguese who seemed more attracted to the country due to the current situation.*2500 in each country polled, all Internet users who had travelled in the past 24 months outside their country of residence.Source = GoEuro
