No salmon return to Canada river bringing New England fears

first_imgA conservation group’s discovery that no wild Atlantic salmon have returned to a key river in New Brunswick is prompting concern for the fish’s population health in the U.S. and eastern Canada.The New Brunswick-based Atlantic Salmon Federation has been monitoring the Magaguadavic River for the Canadian government since 1992. The group says this year is the first time since then that no wild salmon have returned to the river to spawn.Atlantic salmon were once abundant in rivers of New England and eastern Canada, but they’re now endangered or have disappeared in parts of both areas. The U.S.’s National Marine Fisheries Service is in the midst of reviewing the Gulf of Maine’s population, which is listed endangered under the Endangered Species Act.About 900 wild salmon entered the river to spawn in 1983, and the fact that none returned this year is bad news for the fish’s population in Maine and Canada, said Neville Crabbe, spokesman for the Atlantic Salmon Federation.“It means for the Magaguadavic River, whatever wild salmon that existed there are now extinct,” Crabbe said. “It affects the good work being done on all the rivers.”Atlantic salmon populations have suffered due to dams, loss of habitat, pollution, climate change and overfishing. They cannot be legally fished commercially in the U.S., but continue to face fishing pressure from Greenland. The only native populations of Atlantic salmon left in the U.S. are in Maine, though restoration efforts are afoot elsewhere in New England.Maine’s most active salmon river is the Penobscot River, and returns there have ebbed and flowed over the years, said Dan Kircheis, a fisheries biologist with the National Marine Fisheries Service. Nearly 850 have returned this year, which is an improvement from 261 in 2014, but far less than more than 1,950 that returned in 2009, according to fisheries service statistics.The disappearance of salmon from the Magagauadavic reflects recent stock assessments that say the river has been “effectively extirpated of wild fish,” said John Kocik, another biologist with the fisheries service.Canada assessed the Outer Bay of Fundy population of Atlantic salmon as endangered in 2010, Fisheries and Oceans Canada spokeswoman Carole Saindon said. The agency recognizes threats to the fish such as poaching, disease and changing marine conditions and “remains committed to restoring the wild Atlantic salmon runs in Eastern Canada,” she said.The Magaguadavic River is located about 45 minutes from the Maine border. It feeds into Passamaquoddy Bay, which is home to salmon farming pens and in turn feeds into the Bay of Fundy.Atlantic Salmon Federation places some of the blame for wild salmon’s struggles off of New Brunswick on salmon farming in the area. Escaped salmon from ocean pens compete with wild fish, and can interbreed with wild fish to yield hybrid offspring that are less fit to survive in the wild, Crabbe said. He described salmon farming as one of the problems affecting fish that humans have the most control over.Cooke Aquaculture, the biggest player in salmon farming in New Brunswick and Maine, is required to report escapes, and there have been very few in recent years, said Nell Halse, a Cooke spokeswoman.“It’s not really accurate to portray it as this terrible problem of escapes,” she said. “It’s a very small number of fish.”last_img read more


Answers coming soon in Lionel Desmond killings NS officials say

first_imgHALIFAX – Almost a year after former soldier Lionel Desmond killed his family and then himself in rural Nova Scotia, an official response shedding light on the tragedy is near.The province’s medical examiner, Dr. Matthew Bowes, says he’s “very close” to deciding whether to conduct a fatality inquiry, and Premier Stephen McNeil says the province will give the family some answers, regardless of what Bowes decides.“I’m expecting that something will be happening soon,” McNeil said Wednesday in an interview with The Canadian Press.On Jan. 3, 2017, the retired corporal shot his wife Shanna, 31, their 10-year-daughter Aaliyah and his 52-year-old mother Brenda, before turning the gun on himself. Desmond had been diagnosed with PTSD and post-concussion disorder after completing two difficult tours in Afghanistan in 2007.Advocates say an inquest is long overdue.“The family deserves to have answers and some closure,” says Peter Stoffer, a longtime veterans advocate and former Nova Scotia MP. “Unless there’s an inquiry, there’s always going to be suspicion that the government at either level may be responsible in some way.”Family members say Desmond was a radically changed man when he was medically discharged, and returned home to Upper Big Tracadie, N.S., in 2015. They say his outgoing sense of humour had dimmed and, more importantly, he seemed withdrawn and in a defensive posture much of the time, as if he was still in combat mode.Within hours of the killings, relatives came forward to complain Desmond did not get the help he needed to cope with civilian life, and they demanded a public inquiry to determine what went wrong and how to prevent similar tragedies.Two of Desmond’s sisters, twins Chantel and Cassandra, have led a high-profile campaign calling for an inquiry. Neither woman responded to requests for interviews this week.Bowes has the option of conducting an inquiry under the province’s Fatality Investigations Act.However, such investigations are rare in the province. The last time a fatality inquiry was held in Nova Scotia was almost 10 years ago.Dr. John Butt, the former medical examiner for both Nova Scotia and Alberta, has said Nova Scotia should order an inquiry. And several veterans groups and individuals have also come forward to call for action, including Vets Canada and Wounded Warriors Canada.“Our thoughts are with Lionel Desmond’s family and we support their effort to learn the full details associated with this tragedy,” Scott Maxwell, executive director of Wounded Warriors Canada, said in a statement Wednesday.“It’s important that this situation becomes focused less on political manoeuvering — between the province and the federal government — and more on learning from the review of this case so we, as a nation, can do better by our ill and injured veterans and their families.”The federal and provincial governments have spent the past 11 months largely avoiding the issue, says Trev Bungay, a retired soldier who at one point served in Afghanistan as the master-corporal in charge of Desmond’s unit in the 2nd Battalion, Royal Canadian Regiment. Both saw heavy combat amid a rapidly growing list of Canadian casualties.“Everybody wants to push the blame onto somebody else instead of fixing the problem,” says Bungay, co-founder of Trauma Healing Centers, which offer treatment for veterans, first responders and civilians suffering from PTSD, trauma, chronic pain or disabling illness.“Nobody wants the answers because they know the answers are going to put everybody at fault — both governments … How many times does something like this need to happen before they sit down and talk about it?”Bungay spent 18 years in the military, which included four combat tours in Afghanistan. Like Desmond, he struggled with PTSD.“I came home and I went through this exact same thing,” he said in an interview this week.“I spiralled out of control. I lost everything. I was an alcoholic. I was on illicit drugs. You name it, I did it. Eventually, it turned into two suicide attempts … (But) I came out on the other end. I’m one of the lucky ones.”He established the first trauma clinic in 2014. Now there are six centres in Nova Scotia, Ontario and New Brunswick offering help to about 6,000 clients.Bungay says the federal government has improved the way it deals with medically discharged veterans and those with PTSD, but he says it has more work to do.In October, Ottawa promised to improve support for military personnel through a new suicide prevention strategy, which focuses on easing the transition from a military career to civilian life.“Unfortunately, people had to die before any polices changed,” Bungay says. “And that’s exactly where we are right now.”More than 130 serving military personnel have taken their own lives since 2010, according to National Defence.In October, federal Veterans Affairs Minister Seamus O’Regan suggested his department didn’t have the jurisdiction to conduct an inquiry into the Desmond case because it couldn’t gain access to provincial medical records.McNeil responded by suggesting the responsibility for a probe rested with Ottawa, but this week said the province will respond in some way.“Whatever happens, one or the other (level of government) is going to have to share information,” he said.“Once the medical examiner presents something to the (provincial) justice minister, our goal is then to go out and do something to … bring some level reassurance to the family to show that people are hearing them, and they can find some level of what happened throughout this process.”Like Bungay, Stoffer says both levels of government are apprehensive about allowing an inquiry to dig into what really happened to Lionel Desmond.“They may be afraid they might be ashamed of some policies and practices that were supposed to be in place and weren’t followed properly,” Stoffer says.“It may be a money matter. Who knows the reasons why? … There’s a lot of unanswered questions. And there’s no reason why both levels of government wouldn’t want to co-operate to find out exactly what happened.”— Follow @NovaMac on Twitterlast_img read more

News that one of the top contenders to head the U.S. Federal Reserve has withdrawn his candidacy sent North American markets higher Monday, as investors bet that stimulus funding from the central bank will continue to flow a little longer.The S&P/TSX composite index climbed 91.60 points to 12,815. The Canadian dollar was stronger, up 0.32 of a cent to 96.97 cents US.Economist Larry Summers has long been perceived as an opponent to the Fed’s aggressive $85-billion a month bond-buying program, which has helped push down interest rates to spur lending and jump start economic growth. The program, dubbed quantitative easing, has also weakened the U.S. dollar and boosted stock markets.U.S. indexes jumped on the news. The Dow Jones industrials surged 158.67 points to 15,534.73, the Nasdaq was ahead 13.75 points to 3,735.93 and the S&P 500 added 14.41 points to 1,702.40.“Certainly, markets are interpreting Summers’ withdrawing from the race as Fed chairman implies that quantitative easing could persist for longer, that interest rates could be pushed further into the future,” said Paul Ferley, the assistant chief economist at the Royal Bank of Canada.Summers’ withdrawal to succeed current Fed chairman Ben Bernanke means Fed vice-chair Janet Yellen, believed to be a supporter of the stimulus program, may be next in line for the top job.The development comes as the Fed is set to make a key announcement Wednesday on what it plans to do about its asset purchases. It’s widely expected that the central bank will begin tapering anywhere between US$10 billion to US$15 billion a month on signs that the U.S. economic recovery is moving forward. What is still left up in the air is at what pace the money will be rolled back.Meanwhile, oil prices declined as the October crude contract dipped $1.08 to US$107.13 a barrel.Gold prices got some lift after closing last week at their lowest price in more than a month. Bullion saw an uptick of $10.10 to US$1,318.70 an ounce. December copper was up two cents at US$3.23 a pound.By mid-day, all sectors were seeing sizable gains on the Toronto Stock Exchange, as info tech led the charge with an uptick of 2.28 per cent. Shares in Wi-Lan Inc. (TSX:WIN) were up nearly nine per cent, or 29 cents to $3.68 after the company and Alcatel Lucent USA Inc. agreed to settle their dispute over several patents and withdraw litigation before U.S. district courts in Florida and Texas.The gold sector was the only decliner on the TSX, down by 0.16 per cent.On the corporate front, Aimia Inc. announced it has reached an agreement with TD Bank Group and the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce for its popular Aeroplan loyalty credit card programs. Each bank will have rights to half the portfolio of accounts that offer their customers loyalty points, which can be exchanged for airline tickets and other goods through Aimia’s flagship Aeroplan program.Shares in Aimia (TSX:AIM) rose more than five per cent, or 92 cents, to $17.55. TD (TSX:TD) shares were up 1.17 per cent, or $1.05, to $90.97, while shares in CIBC (TSX:CM) jumped 0.85 per cent, or 69 cents, to $81.82.TD said it expects to acquire approximately 550,000 cardholder accounts from CIBC, representing approximately $3 billion in card balances and $20 billion in annual retail spending. CIBC, which has been the primary Aeroplan credit card issuer for more than 20 years, will retain the half of the portfolio. That will include Aerogold customers with broader relationships with the bank.Meanwhile, Bombardier (TSX:BBD.B) flew the first test flight of its CSeries commercial aircraft Monday morning.The flight sets off a year of testing, leading to delivery of the first aircraft, which seats 110- to 125-seat CS100 and is slated to enter into service in about a year. The heavily anticipated first flight had been delayed three times over nearly nine months. Its shares climbed 0.6 per cent, or three cents, to $5.02.In economic news, Statistics Canada says foreign investors resumed purchases of Canadian securities in July, adding $6.1 billion to their holdings. It says this followed a $15.4 billion divestment in June. Meanwhile, Canadian investment in foreign securities slowed to $900 million and focused on bonds.South of the border, U.S factories boosted output 0.7 per cent in August, the best since December, and mainly led by auto production. read more

Speaking to reporters at a press briefing in New York, Ambassador Noureddine Mejdoub of Tunisia recalled that in January, the Council had issued a Presidential Statement reiterating “to all States their obligation to comply with the measures imposed by resolution 733 (1992) of 23 January 1992 and urges each State to take the necessary steps to ensure full implementation and enforcement of the arms embargo.” That resolution aimed to promote stability and peace in Somalia by banning the sale of all weapons and military equipment to the country. He further recalled that the text had strongly condemned the illegal supply of weapons to recipients in Somalia. “It reiterates its call upon all States, the United Nations and other international organizations and entities to report to the Committee established by resolution 751 (1992) of 24 April 1992 information on possible violations of the arms embargo,” Mr. Mejdoub stated. The Chairman said that while he had no information on individuals or countries involved in illegal arms supplies to Somalia, “obviously it does exist, because the practice is still there.” read more

Earlier, the 2015 budget had been set at $840 million for 2015.Penn West, which operates mostly in southern Alberta and Saskatchewan, cut about 400 full-time employees and contractors last year, about 35 per cent of its workforce, because of the prolonged decline in oil prices.Penn West ended 2015 producing more than 77,000 barrels per day of oil, gas and liquids.For the coming year, Penn West projects between 60,000 and 64,000 barrels per day of production in 2016. read more


INTERVIEW UN senior adviser discusses blueprint to strengthen global responses for refugees

Special Adviser Karen AbuZayd speaks to the UN News Centre ahead of the summit. Credit: United Nations UN News Centre: What are your thoughts on the criticism that it is weak and that it could have been stronger? Karen AbuZayd: Well, I think, of course it could have been stronger. Our document, which was used to build toward the outcome document, probably had some more recommendations in it that we would have liked to have seen, but all in all, what we achieved was quite extraordinary and the outcome document gives many things. I don’t know why [there is criticism that the outcome] is not strong. There could be some things that are not there that could have been, but all the commitments that are there use very strong language that the Member States agreed by consensus [and] are determined to do. They are acknowledging things, they are saying that they are going to go ahead and [take measures], and many intend to do as well. On the whole, they have agreed to a number of new actions that they will take on behalf of refugees and migrants. We should be happy about this and embrace it. UN News Centre: How do you feel about the fact that the Secretary-General’s recommendation on resettling 10 per cent of the refugees was not included? Karen AbuZayd: I would like people to look at that in context. In 2015, for example, UNHCR submitted names for resettlement of 135,000 refugees. UNHCR said what it would like to do – and we put it in the [working draft] document – is resettle 10 per cent of the refugees every year. Now there are 21 million refugees this year – that means two million to be resettled.[Member States] have agreed to a number of new actions that they will take on behalf of refugees and migrantsThis is an extraordinary ask, even logistically, getting countries to agree, going through country procedures to move two million refugees. What is in the document is 1.09 million refugees to be resettled. One million refugees, that is half of what we said, but it is nine times more than the 135,000 that were able to be resettled last year. I think we should be very glad that this very large number is in the document. UN News Centre: How will this document feed into the summit in September? Karen AbuZayd: It is a basis for the discussions. And since the 193 States have agreed to it, it means that the commitments that are in there, which they said they want to carry out, will be what comes out of the Summit in September. UN News Centre: Before we conclude, is there any you would like to add? Karen AbuZayd: I’d just like everyone to look at the positive side of this. If we begin to say it’s weak, it’s meaningless and so on – first, it’s not true, it’s not weak – there are some very strong things in there and it is certainly meaningful.For any refugee or a refugee child, in particular, there are so many new things: getting rid of refugee camps; putting refugee children in school soon after they get to where they are going; to have better reception at borders; to work together globally and collectively to bring in international financial institutions immediately; for UNHCR to devise a plan on every major outflow of refugees; and to have a process that is going to begin immediately on having a global compact for migrants as well. So both refugees and migrants will benefit if all of the things that are in that document are achieved. @media only screen and (min-width: 760px), screen9 {#PhotoHolder3 #PhotoCrop { max-height: 770px; /* sets max-height value for all standards-compliant browsers */ width: 134%; margin-left:-161px; margin-top: -280px;}#story-headline{ font-size: 4.4em; line-height: 1em; color:#fff; position: relative; top: 30px; text-shadow: 10px 10px 10px rgba(0,0,0,0.8); xwidth:46%; xmargin-left:8em;}}#sidebar {display:none;} div#story-content .span8 {width:100% !important} #fullstory p { font-size: 15px; line-height: 1.8em;}blockquote { font-size: 1.3em; line-height: 1.5em; font-style:italic; color:#999;}.videoWrapper { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; /* 16:9 */ padding-top: 1em; height: 0; margin-bottom:1em;}.videoWrapper iframe { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%;} The draft document that will be put before the Heads of State and Government and other representatives at the General Assembly’s Summit paves the way for global compacts on greater responsibility-sharing based on a comprehensive refugee response framework, and a range of principles, commitments and understandings among Member States regarding international migration in all its dimensions. The UN Summit and the proposed commitments by Member States come as the number of people displaced from their homes due to conflict and persecution last year exceeded 60 million for the first time in the Organization’s history. The Global Trends 2015 report compiled by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) notes that 65.3 million people were displaced at the end of 2015, a tally that comprised 21.3 million refugees, 3.2 million asylum seekers, and 40.8 million people internally displaced within their own countries. Yesterday, the UN News Centre spoke with Karen AbuZayd, Special Adviser on the Summit on Addressing Large Movements of Refugees and Migrants on the outcome document and the effort to bring countries together behind a more humane and coordinated approach. UN News Centre: To start off, could you tell us your reactions to the outcome document? Karen AbuZayd: I am very pleased with the outcome document. As you know, it was the result of consensus by 193 Member States led by the co-facilitators, the Ambassadors of Ireland and Jordan. The facilitators did a fantastic job […] in bringing the 193 States together to say what they said and to offer the things to the refugees and the migrants, and the host countries […] a lot of new things that will make a big difference. read more

HMP Thorn Cross is a 380-capacity open prison in Cheshire A separate report by HM Chief Inspector of Prisons into the prison last year confirmed that food was being thrown over the jail fence – with people on the outside throwing tins of tuna over the fence to waiting inmates.The 2017 report stated that 88 per cent of lags said the food served up at the prison was awful and that it was “very unpopular with prisoners”.A Prison Service spokesman said: “Smuggling unauthorised items into prison is unacceptable and anyone found doing so can face longer behind bars.” Prisoners left hungry by small meals prepared in jail are getting friends on the outside to smuggle in steaks, according to a review.Inmates at HMP Thorn Cross, a 380-capacity open prison in Cheshire, have resorted to having sausages, bacon, fish and steaks thrown over the fence.A report by the Independent Monitoring Board found contraband at the establishment continues to be “problematic”, despite the efforts of catering teams to satisfy prisoners’ culinary tastes with “themed nights” offering food from countries around the world. This is in addition to a “Food Focus” group where lags can suggest menu ideas, and a catering course held three times a week where inmates prepare burgers for others to buy.It said: “In the reporting year there have been incidences of mobile phones, sim cards, phone chargers, and other substances and even fresh meat and fish. HMP Thorn Cross is a 380-capacity open prison in CheshireCredit:KENDALL/PA Archive “Despite excellent use of intelligence available to the discipline staff it remains a problem.”Items found through searches and cell searches are high value currency items and it is important that prevention on entering the establishment is paramount and use and uptake of the contraband is impossible.”Prisoners are able to cook food with microwaves and toasters.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

first_imgLe boson de Higgs bientôt découvert ?Les équipes de physiciens qui travaillent à l’accélérateur de particules américain Tevatron indiquent que le boson de Higgs serait tout près d’être découvert.”La fin de la traque pour saisir le boson de Higgs est proche”. C’est ce que vient tout juste de déclarer Jim Siegrist, directeur adjoint de la science physique de haute énergie au Ministère américain de l’Energie. En effet, selon le laboratoire américain Fermilab, de nouveaux calculs, effectués par des scientifiques à l’accélérateur de particules américain Tevatron, confirmeraient ceux réalisés au Grand collisionneur de hadrons (LHC) au CERN (organisation européenne pour la recherche nucléaire) à Genève. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Cela signifierait donc que les recherches avancent de plus en plus et que la découverte du fameux boson de Higgs ne serait plus très loin. Un signe d’autant plus probant que les deux équipes de recherches travaillant sur le projet, dans l’Illinois, ont employé des techniques différentes que celles du CERN pour débusquer le mystérieux boson. “Il s’agit d’une étape clé dans les expériences menées au Tevatron et elle démontre l’importance de continuer à effectuer indépendamment des mesures dans la quête pour la compréhension des éléments formant la nature”, a ajouté Jim Siegrist cité par l’AFP. “Je suis vraiment emballé par le rythme des progrès accomplis dans la recherche du boson de Higgs”, a de son côté déclaré Pier Oddone, directeur du Fermilab qui exploitait le Tevatron longtemps le plus puissant accélérateur de particules au monde qui a cessé ses activités en septembre 2011. Cela fait de nombreuses années que les scientifiques tentent de dénicher le boson de Higgs décrit comme la clé manquante de la théorie des particules élémentaires qui permettrait de décrire toutes les particules et forces dans l’univers. Le mystérieux élément permettrait en fait d’expliquer pourquoi certaines particules sont dotées d’une masse et d’autres pas… à condition qu’il soit un jour découvert.Le 8 mars 2012 à 13:17 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more


Des vers décapités font repousser leur tête et leur mémoire

September 20, 2019

first_imgDes vers décapités font repousser leur tête… et leur mémoireDes chercheurs américains ont décapité des petits vers d’eau douce appelés “planaires” et ont constaté que ceux-ci étaient non seulement capables de faire repousser leur tête mais aussi de retrouver leur mémoire.La mémoire est un système particulièrement complexe et délicat qui siège à l’intérieur même de notre cerveau. Si notre encéphale vient à ne plus fonctionner ou à être séparé, la mémoire disparait donc avec lui. Du moins, c’est ce qu’on pourrait penser mais il semblerait que ce ne soit pas le cas chez tous les organismes vivants. Pour preuve, l’étonnante étude menée par des chercheurs de l’Université Tufts aux Etats-Unis sur des vers plats d’eau douce appelé “planaires”.Ces organismes sont capables de régénérer certaines parties de leur corps. Pour tester leur capacité, les scientifiques ont donc décapité les vers et ont attendu que leur tête repousse avant de tester leur capacité. Plus précisément, c’est à leur mémoire que l’équipe de Michael Levin s’est intéressée. Mais pour cela, les chercheurs avaient, avant la décapitation, entrainé les vers. En effet, l’étude publiée dans la revue Journal of Experimental Biology a tout d’abord consisté à tester les facultés d’adaptation des planaires.Apprendre aux vers à trouver leur nourriture Les spécimens ont ainsi été séparés en deux groupes : un groupe témoin qui a passé toute l’expérience tranquillement installé dans une boite de pétri et un groupe expérimental qui a lui, subi des tests. Ceux-ci ont consisté à placer les vers dans des espaces ouverts cernés par des parois épaisses. D’ordinaire, les planaires n’aiment pas trop la lumière qu’ils associent aux prédateurs. Placés dans ces espaces, ils ont tendance à rester collés aux parois.Le but de l’expérience était donc de leur faire surmonter leurs réticences et de les faire aller dans la zone lumineuse en les attirant avec de la nourriture qu’ils devaient trouver. Un protocole qui leur permettait de comprendre que cette zone n’était pas forcément dangereuse et contenait de la nourriture. Les chercheurs ont répété l’expérience une dizaine de jours jusqu’à que les vers sachent trouver leur pitance. Ils ont alors constaté que les spécimens qui connaissaient ces espace la trouvaient bien plus facilement que les autres. Signe que l’entrainement avait marché. Puis ils ont décapité les vers les plus doués en assurant que plus rien ne subsiste du cerveau. Ils les ont laissés tranquille pendant deux semaines, le temps que leur tête repousse et ont replacé les vers dans les espaces, une fois la repousse achevée. Un apprentissage d’une rapidité étonnante Les conditions étaient exactement les mêmes que dans les précédentes expériences. Toutefois, les spécimens ont été mis en concurrence avec d’autres vers non habitués à l’espace. Au cours du premier essai, les résultats ont été plutôt décevants : les planaires décapités n’ont pas vraiment montré de meilleures performances que les autres. En revanche, dès le deuxième essai, leurs progrès ont été spectaculaires. Ils se sont ainsi montrés aussi doués qu’avant la décapitation et leurs anciens réflexes semblaient être pleinement revenus. Une observation qui a grandement étonné les chercheurs qui en ignorent l’origine. Comment les vers peuvent-ils se souvenir de quelque chose après que leur tête a été coupée ? “Nous n’en avons aucune idée”, a répondu Michael Levin cité par le National Geographic.Une mémoire stockée ailleurs que dans le cerveau ? À lire aussiLe mariage aiderait à prévenir les risques de démence, mais pourquoi ?Néanmoins, les résultats suggèrent que la mémoire pourrait également être stockée en dehors du cerveau, probablement dans d’autres cellules du corps, soulignent le chercheur et ses collègues. Reste à savoir comment elle réintègre ensuite le nouvel encéphale… “Nous avons mis au point un nouveau système modèle avec lequel nos futurs travaux pourront découvrir comment les souvenirs sont encodés et décodés à l’intérieur et depuis les tissus vivants”, a ajouté Michael Levin. Cependant, les auteurs n’excluent pas une autre possibilité, selon The Verge : celle que le cerveau de départ ait agi sur le système nerveux du corps de sorte que le nouvel encéphale soit capable d’apprendre plus vite et donc de retrouver rapidement les anciens réflexes. S’il reste donc de nombreuses mystères à élucider, les chercheurs espèrent que ceci leur permettra d’en apprendre plus sur les processus de mémorisation et d’apprentissage, notamment au vu des voies que cela pourrait ouvrir. “Cette découverte pourrait avoir d’importantes implications dans la biomédecine et donc d’apporter une contribution significative dans le domaine de l’utilisation des cellules-souches, et notamment en ce qui concerne les problèmes de la dégénérescence du cerveau humain”, ont relevé les scientifiques.Le 17 juillet 2013 à 14:27 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Credit: arXiv:1410.3859 [quant-ph] Citation: Simon’s algorithm run on quantum computer for the first time—faster than on standard computer (2014, November 17) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2014-11-simon-algorithm-quantum-timefaster-standard.html A quantum computer is a computing device that relies on quantum bits (qubits) rather than the standard digital bits that have been used by most every computing device made. It’s believed that such a computer would be able to run certain algorithms faster or more efficiently than standard computers due to their ability to take advantage of quantum mechanics properties such as entanglement and superposition. Until now, however, it’s not been possible to run algorithms created specifically for such machines, to test out this theory.In this new effort, the team ran what is known as Simon’s algorithm, for Daniel Simon, who, twenty years ago, came up with an algorithm designed specifically to run faster on a quantum computer than it would, on a standard computer. Its purpose is to figure out whether a black box returns a unique output for every possible input. The team ran the simplest version of the algorithm on a quantum computer that used just six qubits, and report that it took just two iterations to solve the problem, where it would take a normal computer three. That may not seem like much, but it is believed that as more qubits are added, the larger the difference would be between the two approaches, which means, the quantum computer would be able to solve the algorithm much faster, or technically, more efficiently than standard computers. That’s the good news. The bad news is that thus far, there is no practical benefit to running Simon’s algorithm—its sole purpose is to show that for one algorithm, the quantum computer does better.But that’s not the end of the story, showing that one such algorithm can return a result more quickly on a quantum computer offers researchers hope that other algorithms, such as Shor’s algorithm (which can be used to factor large numbers into their primes—an important part of encryption schemes) could be run much faster as well. © 2014 Phys.org Explore further More information: Experimental Realization of a One-Way Quantum Computer Algorithm Solving Simon’s Problem, Phys. Rev. Lett. 113, 200501 – Published 11 November 2014 dx.doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevLett.113.200501 . On Arxiv: arxiv.org/abs/1410.3859ABSTRACTWe report an experimental demonstration of a one-way implementation of a quantum algorithm solving Simon’s problem—a black-box period-finding problem that has an exponential gap between the classical and quantum runtime. Using an all-optical setup and modifying the bases of single-qubit measurements on a five-qubit cluster state, key representative functions of the logical two-qubit version’s black box can be queried and solved. To the best of our knowledge, this work represents the first experimental realization of the quantum algorithm solving Simon’s problem. The experimental results are in excellent agreement with the theoretical model, demonstrating the successful performance of the algorithm. With a view to scaling up to larger numbers of qubits, we analyze the resource requirements for an n-qubit version. This work helps highlight how one-way quantum computing provides a practical route to experimentally investigating the quantum-classical gap in the query complexity model. , arXiv (Phys.org) —A team of researchers working in South Africa has reported that they’ve successfully run Simon’s algorithm on a quantum computer for the first time. In their paper published in Physical Review Letters, the team describes how they ran the algorithm, the results they found and what doing so means for the future of quantum computing.

first_imgHackr.io: search engine for coding courses and tutorials by Martin Brinkmann on March 03, 2017 in Internet – Last Update: March 04, 2017 – 5 commentsHackr.io is an online search engine designed specifically to find online coding courses and tutorials in virtually any programming language that exists.While you can use any search engine out there to find plenty of programming courses and tutorials, or use YouTube or other video hosting sites for that, a great list of courses and tutorials may be more to your liking.That’s what Hackr.io offers basically. The front page lists some of the languages and topics that it supports.You may dive right in, by clicking on Android development, C++, or Java for instance, or use the search instead to find topics of interest.Hackr.ioA click on a topic lists all programming courses and tutorials with matching tags. The listing is sorted by user votes, with the tutorials with the most votes at the top.Each result is listed with its name, type, cost, domain it is hosted on, and user comments if available.A click loads the selected tutorial or course in a new tab in the web browser. The number of results depends largely on the topic.The WordPress listing lists two items only for instance, while the Angular listing dozens.Anyone with an account may submit tutorials or courses. The developers of the site hope that the community will reward better tutorials by upvoting them.There is a danger obviously for abuse of the system, especially in the current state where votes are below the 50 mark. If the site manages to get popular, it may sort itself out though.All community features, voting, submitting, and commenting, require a free account.The site has two main issues right now. First, that the number of tutorials is rather low. WordPress is a dominant CMS and blogging platform, but only two items are listed in the category.The second issue is how the site’s search works. You’d expect it to find items based on what you enter, but that is not the case. If you type something, only topics are searched and returned. A search for Android reveals only the Android Development category, and not the actual tutorials or courses.This is probably the bigger issue right now, as it means that you have to browse the category listing if you are looking for a course on a particular topic.It is probably easier and faster to use a search engine like Startpage, or a site like YouTube for that directly instead.Closing WordsHackr.io needs to address the two issues to become a useful service. Right now, it is held back by the low number of courses and tutorials that it links to, and how the site’s search works.SummaryArticle NameHackr.io: search engine for coding courses and tutorialsDescriptionHackr.io is an online search engine designed specifically to find online coding courses and tutorials in virtually any programming language that exists.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more


Pakistan to push forward on gas project with Iran

first_imgISLAMABAD (AP) – Pakistan will push forward with a controversial pipeline to import natural gas from neighboring Iran, Pakistan said Tuesday, a project opposed by the United States.The pipeline will link Iran’s gas fields with energy-starved Pakistan, but by going ahead with the project, Pakistan may incur U.S. and international sanctions imposed on Iran _ or anyone doing business with Iran _ over that country’s nuclear program. Check your body, save your life Get a lawn your neighbor will be jealous of The U.S. has opposed the project and instead supported an alternative proposal to build a pipeline from the gas fields of Turkmenistan to Afghanistan, Pakistan and India.Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement Tuesday that petroleum ministers of the two countries met in Tehran on Monday to discuss the project, which has been beset by repeated delays.The two countries decided to fast track the pipeline and formulate a road map to work out challenges, the ministry said. However, no details were given on how Pakistan plans to overcome the numerous problems associated with the project, such as funding and the risk of sanctions.The ministry said experts from both sides would meet soon to accelerate work on the pipeline.Pakistani officials in the Tehran meeting also reiterated their government’s commitment to fulfill its contractual obligation to the pipeline and stressed that the project is of “immense importance” to meeting Pakistan’s energy needs.Islamabad hopes the pipeline will help alleviate the country’s energy crisis, especially electricity shortages. Gas is used to fire many of the nation’s power plants, but insufficient quantities mean rolling blackouts are common. The vital role family plays in society Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Comments   Share   Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility The agreement with Iran stipulates that Pakistan must construct its side of the pipeline by December 2014 but the project has met repeated delays. If Pakistan fails to meet this deadline, it will be liable to pay fines that could run into the millions of dollars per day.Most of the Iranian side of the pipeline is believed to be completed but Pakistan has yet to build the roughly 780 kilometers (500 miles) of pipeline necessary to finish its side of the project. There are serious doubts about how Pakistan could come up with the at least $1.5 billion needed to construct the pipeline.An Islamabad-based advocacy group Sustainable Development Policy Institute in an October report termed the project a “death sentence” for Pakistan because it said the gas sold will likely be several times more expensive than the domestic gas currently used.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

first_imgTravel tops tax return wish list for Australians, new G Adventures surveyTravel tops tax return wish list for Australians, new G Adventures surveyAlmost half of Australians have identified they would prefer to use their tax return to fund travel than pay off their credit cards and debts, and 3 in 5 (59%) would choose travel over making investments, new research from G Adventures has shown.The new research, commissioned by leading small group tour operator G Adventures, has identified that travel is the number one thing Australians would like to spend their tax refund on.The research found that Australians plan on spending 20% of their tax refund on travel, and as the average tax payer expects, in 2017, to receive a tax refund of $1,536, this equates to approximately 3.8 billion dollars in spend across the country.With more than three quarters (76%) of Aussies preferring to spend their money on experiences rather than things, and almost half (47%) of those expecting a tax refund planning to use at least some to fund travel, it appears people are choosing to spend their money on memories rather than materials by investing in their next adventureAdrian Piotto, Managing Director of G Adventures Australia, said that they were pleased the findings confirmed what they had long suspected – that spending money on experiences and making memories was a high priority for Australians.“In an age of consumerism, this research tells us that Australians want their hard-earned money to go to something more meaningful,” Piotto said.“Being in the travel industry, we know the power that a life-changing travel experience can have. We want to continue helping Aussies realise their travel dreams, through adventures to some of the greatest places on earth.”For those looking for some travel inspiration, cruising down the Amazon River or camping under the stars in Yosemite National Park have taken out the top desired travel experiences, according to the research.Other key findings included:Travel is the number one aspect Australians would like to spend their tax return onHalf (48%) of Australians would prefer to spend their tax return on travel rather than pay off debts or credit cards86% of Australians would prefer to spend their tax refund on travel over partying and nights out59% of Australians would prefer to spend their tax return on travel over investing the moneyThe research was commissioned by G Adventures and conducted online in July, 2017 by Lonergan Research with a diverse pool of 1,037 Australians across the country.

first_imgA group of university students from Amsterdam recently visited Cyprus to study the impact that the role of European Capital of Culture is having on Paphos.The new course, titled ‘Culture Lab’ is being offered by Amsterdam University College (AUC), and involved three staff and fifteen students studying for bachelor degrees visit Cyprus for two weeks.“By bringing students to Paphos, we try to encourage them to engage in experiential learning, thereby adding a more hands-on kind of learning to the curriculum,” said course organiser Floris Cobben.“Because the students have varying academic backgrounds, they have also been engaging on different levels with the Paphos2017 events,” he added.The course is being taught by Prof Dr Murray Pratt (Dean of AUC), and Dr Pedram Dibazar (AUC lecturer and tutor).During their visit, the students met with various stakeholders in Paphos2017, including organisers, artists and local academics. The idea was to expose them to all facets of the events, and to give a proper understanding of the context, said Cobben.“We also made a weekend visit to Nicosia, and learnt more about the conflict dividing Cyprus, giving important insights necessary to contextualise the research of the students,” he said.He explained that some students are studying anthropology, and have been looking into grassroots cultural movements, whilst others with an international relations background are more interested in topics such as European identity.Students Els van Dam and Andrea Haefner are exploring European identity and its relation to the European capital of culture. They have started an Instagram page titled “Europeans of Paphos”, and are conducting interviews with locals and stakeholders.Another project by Teus Hagen explores how the Pafos2017 logo aims to reflect the city, and examines how logos function more generally when attempting to reflect a city’s identity, in just a single image, across multiple cultures throughout Europe.Depending on the type of project, students have collected different kinds of data. Some have undertaken interviews, others have taken photos for visual analysis, and some are researching using online resources.Cobben said that students study one of the three majors, the humanities, social sciences, or the sciences.“We have students from all disciplines and various different specialisations joining us on the course.”You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?FigLeaf Beta AppUndoFigLeaf Beta AppFigLeaf brings You 3 Easy Steps to Privacy on Your Terms…FigLeaf Beta AppUndoSenior Living | Search AdsGorgeous Senior Apartments in Rowland Heights Are Turning HeadsSenior Living | Search AdsUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
