COP22 To Kick Off on Positive Note After Enforcement of Paris…

Rome – The COP22 will start on a positive note few days following the enforcement of the Paris Agreement, said president of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) Kanayo F. Nwanze.The head of IFAD told MAP that the COP22 will maintain momentum in favor of commitments made at the Paris meeting.The financial aspect will be pivotal for two reasons: on the one hand, mobilizing 100 billion dollars for action in favor of climate is a priority for most developing countries, on the other hand, donors would like to see concrete measures taken to turn this funding into sustainable investment, mainly for vulnerable populations, he noted. “These two visions can be complementary but we can expect a pressing demand for rigorous monitoring of the said funding and its spending,” he said. Regarding the division of resources, the issue of balance between mitigation efforts and adaptation efforts will be also a key element in debates, he said. read more

Marc Loving bounces back in Ohio States win against Minnesota in the

Sophomore forward Marc Loving (left) drives through the lane during a game against Minnesota on March 12 in Chicago. OSU won, 79-73. Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorCHICAGO — Marc Loving had a career night in the 22nd game of his sophomore season.Less than a week later, he was suspended.Ohio State’s sophomore forward scored 19 points and shot 5-for-5 from 3-point range in the Buckeyes’ 80-56 win over then-No. 16 Maryland on Jan. 29. But just hours before OSU tipped off against Purdue on Feb. 4, a team spokesman announced that Loving hadn’t made the trip.His suspension lasted three games, then Loving played just five minutes and didn’t score in the Buckeyes’ loss to Michigan State on Valentine’s Day. He followed that up with four points in a loss to Michigan and six points each in wins against Nebraska and Purdue. Then as the regular season wound down, the Toledo native posted two more goose eggs in a win against Penn State and a loss to Wisconsin.After scoring 19 points against the Terrapins, Loving had totaled 16 over the Buckeyes’ next nine games.After struggling to find playing time, let alone made baskets, Loving’s funk came to an end Thursday night when OSU topped Minnesota, 79-73, in the second round of the Big Ten Tournament.Loving scored seven points in the first half alone, and finished the game with 12 points and five rebounds. But it was the defense played by OSU’s lone sophomore that stood out to coach Thad Matta.“Everybody thinks offense,” Matta said. “But he really made some spectacular defensive plays from the help position, which was good to see because a lot of the time when a guy’s not playing well offensively he’ll shut down defensively.”Matta added that Loving’s strong play makes the Buckeyes “a stronger basketball team.”Loving called the suspension a “learning lesson,” and added that having multiple options when it comes to scoring the ball will help OSU going forward in the tournament.“Having a lot of options on offense is key, you have to expect everyone,” Loving said. “You can’t just key on the one guy and load the box.”Loving was one of three OSU players to score double digits against the Golden Gophers. He finished behind senior guard Shannon Scott, who scored a career-high 21 points, and freshman guard D’Angelo Russell, who tallied a game-high 23 points.After the game, Scott said Loving transitioned well back into his role in the offense.“Marc played a great game for us,” Scott said. “He shot the ball well, got to the basket, rebounded the ball well for us so he is playing his best basketball right now, that’s what we need him to do.”While his personal struggles on the court might be behind him, Loving said he’ll keep the team’s success as the top priority.“(I’m) just happy to be able to contribute and move forward, and I’m happy today that we’re able to move on in the … Big Ten Tournament.”Loving and the Buckeyes are scheduled to take on Michigan State on Friday night at the United Center. Tip is set for about 25 minutes after the conclusion of Indiana’s 6:30 p.m. matchup against Maryland. read more

Ecstasy could be used safely to treat alcohol addiction and work better

The drug MDMA, better known as party drug Ecstasy, could be used successfullyto treat alcohol addiction, research suggests. Early findings from the trial – the first study to use the drug for such purposes – indicates that it could prove better than standard treatment. Psychiatrists are testing a programme which combines a few doses of MDMA in conjunction with psychotherapy, After nine months follow up, around half of those in the small study remained “completely dry” with just one suffering a full relapse. By comparison, eight in 10 of those given standard treatment to tackle alcohol addiction return to drinking within three years. The results also found the drug was safe to use as part of therapy, with no physical or psychological problems identified.Dr Ben Sessa, an addiction psychiatrist and senior research fellow at Imperial College London, who led the trial, said: “With the very best that medical science can work with, 80 per cent of people are drinking within three years post alcohol detox.”Eleven people have so far completed the safety and tolerability study, which involves nine months of follow-ups.“We’ve got one person who has completely relapsed, back to previous drinking levels, we have five people who are completely dry and we have four or five who have had one or two drinks but wouldn’t reach the diagnosis of alcohol use disorder,” he told The Guardian. A government spokesperson said: “We have a clear licensing regime, supported by legislation, which allows legitimate research to take place in a secure environment while ensuring that harmful drugs are not misused and do not get into the hands of criminals.” Addiction is often linked to previous trauma, often from childhood.Researchers said MDMA “selectively impairs the fear response,” allowing  recall of painful memories without being overwhelmed.The first stage of the new study was only designed to show the therapy is safe. Further trials will compare results with a randomised control group who receive a placebo instead of MDMA. Under the programme, participants are given an eight-week course of psychotherapy, including two doses of MDMA. After taking the drug they spend eight hours lying down, discussing the thoughts that come to mind with psychiatrists and psychologists. Dr Sessa said: “We let them lead the sessions as to where they want to go. What comes up comes up, so it’s not very guided by the clinicians,” Close monitoring in subsequent days found no evidence of drug withdrawal or comedown symptoms from the drug.”There is no black Monday, blue Tuesday, or whatever ravers call it. In my opinion, that is an artefact of raving. It’s not about MDMA,” said Dr Sessa. MDMA was used as a legal prescription drug to enhance the effectiveness of psychotherapy in the US from the 1970s to 1985 and in Switzerland up until 1993.In recent years it has shown promise as a treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). One study published earlier this year found more than 60 per cent of participants no longer suffered from PTSD, two months after treatment, with results sustained a year later.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Éruptions solaires de fortes perturbations à craindre sur Terre Découvrez les images

first_imgÉruptions solaires : de fortes perturbations à craindre sur Terre ? Découvrez les imagesLe Soleil deviendra bientôt beaucoup plus actif qu’il ne l’est aujourd’hui. On devrait ainsi pouvoir observer de nombreuses éruptions solaires qui, bien que très esthétiques, pourraient se révéler dangereuses pour l’activité humaine. Cette hausse d’activité pourrait en effet avoir d’importantes conséquences sur les satellites orbitant autour de la Terre, et des experts se sont déjà réunis mardi dernier afin de trouver des solutions pour protéger ces équipements.Le Soleil est l’une des étoiles de la Voie Lactée. Il connaît des périodes de repos durant lesquelles son activité est réduite (onze ans en général). Une période d’activité se différencie d’une période de repos par la présence de taches sombres à la surface de l’astre : tous les onze ans en moyenne, il n’y a alors plus vraiment d’éruptions ni de projections de matière.Durant les périodes de forte activité, comme celle que le Soleil connaîtra bientôt, des éruptions solaires ont lieu. On peut alors observer de gigantesques panaches à la surface du Soleil, lesquels dégagent des particules qui peuvent endommager les équipements électroniques de la Terre, notamment les GPS, les appareils aériens et les radiocommunications.Une importante éruption solaire pourrait provoquer une perte économique vingt fois supérieure à celle causée par l’ouragan Katrina, selon l’Académie américaine des sciences. C’est pourquoi la capacité à prévoir ces éruptions est devenue capitale. Il faut notamment, avant leur survenue, mettre les satellites en mode sécurisé et protéger les équipements électroniques d’éventuelles surcharges.La Nasa et la NOAA (National oceanic and atmospheric administration) ont ensemble mis en place plusieurs satellites capable de surveiller le Soleil et de prévoir ses changements d’activité. L’engin spatial Stereo (Solar terrestrial relations observatory) est même capable d’observer 90% de la surface du Soleil.Pour découvrir les images du Soleil : https://www.maxisciences.com/soleil/le-soleil-et-ses-differentes-phases-d-039-activite_art7760.htmlLe 10 juin 2010 à 13:33 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Microsoft failles corrigées sur Internet Explorer et Windows

first_imgMicrosoft : failles corrigées sur Internet Explorer et WindowsMountain View a procédé à deux mises à jour de sécurité de son navigateur Internet et de son système d’exploitation. Ce jeudi, Microsoft a procédé à des mises à jour d’importance lui permettant de corriger 28 vulnérabilités, dont les plus dangereuses concernaient Internet Explorer et Windows. Deux mises à jour sont particulièrement mises en avant par la firme de Mountain View. La MS12-037 concerne le navigateur Internet, dont elle corrige 13 failles annoncées publiquement et 12 gardées secrètes par Microsoft, relate Generation NT. Elle concerne toutes les versions de IE de 6 à 9 et elles est qualifiée de niveau critique sur les clients Windows et modéré sur les serveurs Windows. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?La plupart des experts estiment que ce correctif est issu des failles découvertes lors du dernier concours de hacking Pwn2Own, qui s’est déroulé au mois de mars dans le cadre de la conférence CanSecWest 2012. L’une de ces failles, particulièrement grave, permettait à un attaquant d’exécuter du code à distance et d’obtenir les droits de l’utilisateur s’il consultait une page spécialement conçue. Le seconde mise à jour essentielle est la MS12-036 et concerne surtout une faille, gardée secrète, œuvrant sur le protocole RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) de Windows. Toutes les versions de l’OS sont affectées, mais par défaut ce protocole de Bureau à distance n’est pas activé. Des sites Web ou des mails malveillants s’attaquent ainsi via le code à distance ou le déni de service. Enfin, on notera une amélioration du service de mise à jour automatique et en particulier pour les certificats non sûrs dans Windows 7 et Vista. Il y a quelques semaines, Microsoft avait été échaudé par la découverte du malware Flame qui a été capable d’utiliser de faux certificats de sécurité pour tromper des antivirus en faisant croire que c’était un programme Microsoft authentique. Désormais, Windows va vérifier si des certificats n’ont pas été marqués comme non sûrs, de manière quotidienne. Le 13 juin 2012 à 16:05 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Hegar Seeks To Move More of States Rainy Day Fund From Cash

first_imgFlorian Martin/Houston Public MediaTexas’ Rainy Day Fund now holds $12.48 billion, following an infusion of $1.38 billion in oil and gas revenues. The state comptroller is asking lawmakers for approval to make some changes to the fund.Comptroller Glenn Hegar wants permission to shift more of the fund’s cash into stocks and bonds. He said putting more of the money into higher-yield, long-term investments will protect the fund against inflation and bolster the state’s AAA credit rating.“The rating agencies have said, ‘Yes, you need an economic stabilization fund. You need money in there. But you also need to make sure that you are funding your services, whether it’s education or health care or transportation infrastructure,’” said Sherri Greenberg, clinical professor at the LBJ School of Public Affairs at UT Austin.Higher-yield investments also come with higher risk. While less vulnerable to inflation, they can lose value when markets decline.Any changes to the fund must be approved by lawmakers in the upcoming state legislative session, which begins January 8.

Study explains why soggy skin gets wrinkly but does not dissolve

first_imgImage credit: Wikipedia. Eczema treatment creams could make it worse Citation: Study explains why soggy skin gets wrinkly but does not dissolve (2011, March 10) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-03-soggy-skin-wrinkly-dissolve.html Myfanwy Evans, a mathematician at the Research School of Physics and Engineering at the Australian National University in Canberra, and her colleagues developed a stringy skin model to try to explain how the network of keratin fibers in the skin is arranged. Keratin is a fibrous protein also found in the nails and hair. Scientists already knew the keratin networks were important, but until now no one was certain of their structure.After a period in water the outer layer of the skin (the stratum corneum) expands, producing prune-like wrinkles. Earlier researchers suggested the stratum corneum expands as it absorbs water, but no one had yet explained why skin doesn’t fall apart when it has expanded.Keratin is known to prevent evaporation from the skin and to absorb water to help keep the skin hydrated. The stratum corneum layer also gives the skin its stretchy properties and the ability to spring back.Using computer modeling Evans approached the question from a geometric point of view to try to explain why skin maintains its structural rigidity after long exposure to water. She said the outer layer of skin contains a three-dimensional pattern of keratin fibers woven together to form a structure capable of acting like a sponge. The fibers are helical when dry but straighten out as water is absorbed, which allows the network to hold a greater volume of water. All the contacts between the keratin fibers remain intact throughout the expansion, and this makes the material structurally stable, Evans said.Evans, who has just completed her PhD, said after 24 hours submerged in water, the skin can suffer irreversible damage.Evans specializes in the study of gyroids, which are mathematical shapes first described by a NASA scientist, Alan Schoen in 1970. Since then, gyroids have been found in nature, such as in some butterflies, where light refracted through crystalline gyroids in the wings produce the vivid colors.Evans said an understanding of the geometry behind why skin wrinkles after too long in the bath could help scientists design materials with the properties of skin, able to stretch without losing strength. The paper will be published in the cross-disciplinary publication, the Journal of the Royal Society Interface. © 2010 PhysOrg.comcenter_img Explore further (PhysOrg.com) — A new study by mathematicians in Australia has explained how skin remains stable in water and does not dissolve, and why it wrinkles and remains a strong barrier even after absorbing large quantities of water.

If Malwarebytes blocks legitimate processes do this

first_imgIf Malwarebytes blocks legitimate processes, do this by Martin Brinkmann on April 25, 2017 in Tutorials – 15 commentsMalwarebytes 3 may block legitimate processes or functions, such as saving files, on Windows PCs. When I started a PC running Windows 10 Pro today for instance, I got some strange error messages thrown by various programs.The screen capture tool SnagIt complained that it could not save the captured file (failed to save document), and the image optimizer File Optimizer would not process images at all, and would show a saving of 0% for all files that it processed (which never happened before).This was indeed a strange issue, as both programs worked fine yesterday. I did not make any serious changes to the system as well, no Windows updates for instance.Security software may interfere with processes and programs, especially if it was updated. I checked the Malwarebytes installation on the system, and noticed that the “update package version” was set to 1.0.1802.While I’m not entirely sure when the update landed, it must have happened in April. I made the decision to test the theory, and add the SnagIt folder to the exclusions list. When I tried to capture a screenshot afterwards, it worked as expected and did not threw an error message.Configure Malwarebytes to exclude files or processesMalwarebytes blocking legitimate processes and operations is obviously a problem, and while you can wait for Malwarebytes to address the problem, you can use the software’s exclusions system to have it ignore certain files.Open the software program with a double-click on the system tray icon. Select Settings > Exclusions when the program opens.You will notice that the program ships with exclusions by default to protect core Windows locations from being flagged.Click on the Add Exclusion button in the interface to get started. The screen that opens gives you four options to add a new exclusion to the software.Select Exclude a File or Folder from the selection menu, and click on the next button once you have done so.You need to know the file or folder path. You use the select files or select folders button to use a file browser to pick the right files or folder.It is better usually to whitelist only specific files, and not a full folder. This may not work all the time however, for instance when Malwarebytes flags not the executable file, but another file that is required.You may exclude the selection from malware and ransomware protections, or from one of the two protections only.When you are done, click on the ok button to add the selected file, files or folder to the list of exclusions.You may want to test the program and its functionality at this point to make sure that the issue is resolved.Repeat the whitelisting for any programs or files that get blocked by Malwarebytes. Note that you may apply this to other security programs as well, as Malwarebytes is not the only program to flag legitimate processes.Anyway, I would like to hear if you have run into similar issues with the new Malwarebytes 3.x, or the security programs that you are using.SummaryArticle NameIf Malwarebytes blocks legitimate processes, do thisDescriptionIf the Malwarebytes security software blocks legitimate processes or files on Windows PCs, adding those to the exclusions list may resolve the issue.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

I just wanted to go out there and show everybody I can play in this league,” said Smith after practice on Monday.Smith carried the ball 17 times for 54 yards rushing and also caught three passes for 21 yards.The Cardinals’ rookie feels his first NFL action reaffirms his belief that he can be a productive NFL back. Comments   Share   center_img Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away “Throughout the game, my confidence picked up and now I know I can go in and do what they ask of me. I’m pretty confident in my abilities,” said Smith.Still, Smith knows he needs to improve in certain areas if he’s to become a good all around running back.“I need to get better at protecting these quarterbacks in the league. I need to work on my protection and catching the ball,” said Smith.Still, given Beanie Wells’ penchant for getting injured, it should give the Cardinals hope that their first year player can fill in when called upon.“I showed them they can depend on me to go in there if Beanie goes down,” said Smith.However, Smith wasn’t satisfied with his performance on Sunday.“I’m going to grade it as an “F” because we lost.

And from my veteran teammates, too. There’s no doubt in my mind (that I’d be ready).”If the Cardinals do in fact take Carr, odds are the plan would be to have him sit and learn for at least one season. It’s not necessarily an easy thing for a three-year collegiate starter to handle, but something the future draft pick would be able to handle.“If the scenario played out to where I did have to sit out and learn from a guy like Carson or guys like that, then I’m still going to be the same guy,” he said. “Of course it’s going to be hard, of course being the competitor I am it’s going to be really hard.“But I can promise you that starter will get better because I’m going to be out there working my tail off every day trying to take his job, knowing my role is to learn from him for that amount of time.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires With more than two weeks until the NFL Draft, there is still plenty of time for prospects to see their stock go up and down.It’s like a roller coaster, really, and nobody can get off until May 8, at the earliest. Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr is one of the prospects expected to have their name called that night — or the night after, at the latest — and at this point he’s just ready to know where he’ll be playing next season. LISTEN: Derek Carr- Fresno State quarterback center_img “All the traveling, going to this team, going to that team,” he told the Dan Bickley Show with Vince Marotta Monday on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM, “you know, really, you just want to finally get your routine down.”For football players especially, routines are a very important part of their lives. But it’s pretty much impossible to keep one as you are preparing for the draft, and Carr said much of the time is spent trying to find hotel gyms to workout in. Carr isn’t so much nervous about the upcoming draft as he is ready for it to happen.“I just want to get on a team and get my routine going and get to work,” he said.And while he doesn’t really care what team he ends up with, Carr said the Arizona Cardinals would be an exciting option.Go through enough mock drafts, and some have the Cardinals using their first-round pick — number 20 overall — on the 6-foot-3 signal caller. “I would love it, oh my goodness,” Carr said of the possibility of coming to Arizona. “Especially learning from a guy in Coach Arians and their whole staff. And learning from Carson, what an opportunity that would be, to learn from a great quarterback like Carson.” Comments   Share   Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Carr added that given that the California roots he and Palmer share give them something else in common, and that couldn’t hurt. But with Palmer on the roster entrenched as the starter, would the Cardinals spend their first pick on a quarterback? Carr, who is the brother of former number one overall pick David Carr, is coming off a season in which he completed 68.7 percent of his passes for 5,082 yards and 50 touchdowns. He passed for a ridiculous 12,730 yards and 113 touchdowns in three seasons as a starter at Fresno State, numbers that certainly give the impression of a franchise quarterback. Palmer is that guy for the Cardinals right now, but at 34 he’s in no way the long-term answer, meaning a player of Carr’s caliber could prove to be useful down the road.However, when a team views itself as a contender who may just need one or two more pieces who can contribute right away, it may not make much sense to draft someone with an eye on the future.Though Carr is confident he could help a team right now.“If I need to come in and start and help a football team, I’m ready to do that.

The company is currently enabling its fleet for Wi-Fi and expects the installations to be completed over the next several months.“From email to movies and music, so much of people’s lives today require Internet connectivity,” said Avantair Chief Executive Officer Steven Santo. “Business travelers are always looking for opportunities to make the most productive use of their in-flight time. Simply being airborne can no longer be an obstacle to online access and we are pleased to rollout this feature for our customers.”Avantair has selected the ATG 5000 communications system made by Aircell, the world’s leading provider of inflight connectivity. The ATG 5000 covers the full continental U.S. above 10,000 feet AGL and portions of Alaska. The system provides fast mobile broadband connection speeds via a seamless nationwide network of ground stations. Its superior connection makes it easy for users to download files with attachments, access VPNs, surf the Internet and talk on the phone at the same time.“The Avantair family is very excited to provide this new technology that will make our customers’ digital lives seamless from the tarmac to 41,000 feet,” added Santo.Adding Wi-Fi for passengers follows another recent advancement for Avantair. The company recently received FAA approval for usage of electronic flight bags (EFBs) for flight crews. Avantair is equipping its flight crews with Apple iPad 2s as their EFBs, which will allow the pilots to eliminate cumbersome charts and manuals and simply replace them with the technologically enhanced tablets that allow for real time updates. This is yet another first for the company and another way to make Avantair even more “green” by going paperless.www.avantair.comlast_img read more
