Sauver les lémuriens de Madagascar demanderait 57 millions deuros

first_imgSauver les lémuriens de Madagascar demanderait 5,7 millions d’eurosSelon une ONG américaine, il lui faudrait 5,7 millions d’euros pour mettre en place un plan destiné à sauver les lémuriens de Madagascar, dont 93 espèces sur 105 sont menacées.Les lémuriens sont l’un des principaux symboles de l’île de Madagascar. Pourtant, ces primates sont aujourd’hui de plus en plus menacés et leur déclin ne cesse d’inquiéter. Sur les 105 espèces connues de lémuriens malgaches, “24 sont désormais classées ‘en danger critique’, 49 sont ‘en voie de disparition’, et 20 ‘vulnérables'”. Face à cela, l’ONG américaine Conservation International a présenté à Antananarivo un plan pour sauver les lémuriens de Madagascar. Au cours de la présentation, l’organisme a rappelé que les principales raisons qui expliquent que le lémurien soit aujourd’hui le vertébré le plus menacé au monde sont la déforestation qui détruit son habitat, le changement climatique mais surtout le braconnage. “Ici on tue des lémuriens tous les jours, la chasse est le problème le plus grave qui touche les lémuriens”, a expliqué le Dr Russel Mittermeier, président de l’ONG cité par l’AFP.La stratégie de sauvegarde et de conservation des lémuriens de Madagascar que propose Conservation International consiste ainsi à apporter des réponses “aux différentes menaces auxquelles ils font face […]. Le budget total s’élève à 7,6 millions de dollars [5,7 millions d’euros] à rechercher dans les trois ans à venir”, indique l’ONG dans un communiqué. Un plan d’action sur plusieurs fronts À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Concrètement, il s’agirait donc de protéger l’habitat des lémuriens, d’améliorer les moyens de subsistance des paysans, de développer l’écotourisme et de lutter contre la consommation de viande sauvage. Le programme prévoit également une importante contribution des communautés locales et une sensibilisation environnementale à tous les niveaux de la part des autorités. “L’état malgache ne peut pas contribuer financièrement au plan vu la situation actuelle, mais l’important c’est de s’approprier le plan et de contribuer à d’autres niveaux”, a souligné le Dr Claudine Ramiarison, directeur général de la Recherche et du Partenariat au ministère de l’Enseignement Supérieur.Le 3 août 2013 à 09:55 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

GEEK PICK OF THE DAY Retroflag NESPi Case Plus

first_imgStay on target The Raspberry Pi is a fascinating little device. It’s a $25 computer with an ARM processor and a Linux backbone, with just enough power to perform a ton of different tasks if you know how to get it to do them. One of those tasks is emulating classic video games. Emulation is a legally gray-to-black matter, but it’s also so widespread that denying its existence is downright silly. So, instead, let’s talk about a cool retro-themed case you can put a Raspberry Pi into for, well, whatever you want to do with it.Retroflag’s NESPi Case Plus is clearly influenced by the Nintendo Entertainment System. It looks and feels just like a classic NES, just a fraction of the size. Two-tone gray box with a signature black stripe holding two ports, and even Power and Reset buttons next to a red indicator light. It’s a mini NES.This doesn’t mean the NESPi is necessarily influenced by the NES Classic Edition, because it’s an even more faithful model of the NES than Nintendo’s own retro system. The cartridge door actually opens to reveal two more USB ports and an Ethernet port, and there’s even a little pop-off door on the bottom where the wire guide on the original NES was (you can store extra microSD cards in there). If it wasn’t for the concessions to fitting a Raspberry Pi in there and keeping all of the ports available, I’d call the NES impersonation slavish.The NESPi can accept the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, 3 Model B, and 3 Model B+ boards, fitting snugly inside the case, which includes its own little screwdriver and sets of screws for both securing the board and sealing the case. The Raspberry Pi fits under the two PCBs built into the case. One is a breaker board to run the Raspberry Pi’s USB and Ethernet ports to the front of the case, and the other connects the power and reset buttons, and the power LED, to the Pi.The power and reset buttons are fully functional on the NESPi case, and the Plus version of the case features an extra Safe Shutdown and Reset function. By installing a power management script from Retroflag on your Raspberry Pi, the power and reset buttons can safely trigger a safe shutdown of the system instead of simply cutting the power. A switch on the power board lets you disable that function if you don’t want to deal with it, and plan to manually shut down the system when you turn it off.The case’s build quality is very solid, far better than anything I’ve been able to 3D print, and the breaker board and power switches are really helpful touches that mean you don’t need to use an additional power switch shield with the Pi. There’s even room for a ventilation fan if you want to add it.You can get the Retroflag NESPi Case Plus right now for $24.99. The regular version of the NESPi Case retails for $19.99, and is currently out of stock on Amazon. If you want to play with Raspberry Pi, whether you’re emulating or not, this is a really neat little case for it.

Mark Hollis Influential Mastermind Behind Talk Talk Dies At 64

first_imgNews Email Mark Hollis, Influential Mastermind Behind Talk Talk, Dies At 64 Twitter From his commercial success with Talk Talk to his influential release as a solo artist, Hollis’ musical vision helped shape the future of experimental rock, pop, and beyondNate HertweckGRAMMYs Feb 26, 2019 – 4:21 pm Mark Hollis, best-known as the frontman for influential art-pop outfit Talk Talk, has died. His longtime manager, Keith Aspde, confirmed, “Mark has died after a short illness from which he never recovered.” Hollis was 64 years old.Hollis first arrived in the spotlight with Talk Talk’s eponymous first single, “Talk Talk,” from their 1982 debut, The Party’s Over. Two years later, their sophomore album delivered the hits “Such A Shame” and the title track, “It’s My Life,” which would become a hit again in 2003 when No Doubt covered the song, which earned them a GRAMMY nomination for Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals at the 47th GRAMMY Awards.The band’s third album, 1986’s The Colour Of Spring, yeilded their highest-charting U.K. single with “Life Is What You Make It.” Hollis’ artistic vision continued to expand, as his inventive melodic prasing evolved, and as he explored and experimented with space and silence in music, especially in the band’s final album, released in 1991, and his sole solo release, 1998’s self-titled album.While Hollis’ commercial success with Talk Talk may have been brief, his influence on the music world looms large, to the rise of post-rock, providing inspiration for fellow groundbreaking British bands Radiohead, Sigur Rós and Elbow.center_img Aspden told NPR. “I can’t tell you how much Mark influenced and changed my perceptions on art and music. I’m grateful for the time I spent with him and for the gentle beauty he shared with us.”Musicians from accross the music community took to social media to honor Hollis’ contributions. In a post by Duran Duran, who toured with Talk Talk in 1982, the band wrote, “Mark was the main songwriter of some truly great songs”“Mark Hollis started from punk and by his own admission he had no musical ability,” Elbow’s Guy Garvey told  Mojo. “To go from only having the urge, to writing some of the most timeless, intricate and original music ever is as impressive as the moon landings for me.” Peter Tork Of The Monkees Dies At 77Read more Facebook Mark Hollis, Talk Talk’s Mastermind Dies At 64 mark-hollis-influential-mastermind-behind-talk-talk-dies-64last_img read more

Nach Baliye 9 Chandrakanta excouple Madhurima Tuli and Vishal Singh to participate

first_imgMadhurima Tuli; Vishal SinghinstagramEven as speculations regarding the list of contestants of celebrity dance reality show Nach Baliye 9 continue to make news, what’s more interesting is that the new season will also feature ex-couples hitting the dance floor together.While it was reported earlier that Urvashi Dholakia, the original Komolika, had been approached by makers to rock the dance floor along with her former lover Anuj Sachdeva, the Times of India reported that if everything goes as planned, Madhurima Tuli and ex-beau Vishal Aditya Singh may pair up for the show as well. Madhurima and Vishal met and fell in love on the set of Chandrakanta — Ek Mayavi Prem Gaatha in 2017. They, however, called it quits in October last year.A source associated with the show told the daily, “We had approached Madhurima and Vishal when they were in a relationship. However, Vishal was more keen on hosting the show. Since we are trying to introduce a new format by roping in exes, we have approached Madhurima and Vishal again. While Madhurima has shown interest, we are now waiting for Vishal to give his nod.”Coming to Urvashi and Anuj, although the actress hasn’t commented about her participation on the dance show, interestingly, Anuj’s initial response was, “We don’t have a confirmation yet,” he told the daily, however, the actor later stated, “How can I do Nach Baliye? I am single!”Meanwhile, rumour has it that Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani may take the judge’s seat in Nach Baliye 9. Another Bollywood cute couple Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput are also in talks to judge the show.Coming to the list of rumoured contestants, Divya Agarwal and Varun Sood, Anita Hassanandani and Rohit Reddy, Rubina Dilaik and Abhinav Shukhla, Drashti Dhami and Neeraj Khemka, Rohan Mehra and Kanchi Singh, Sana Khan and Melvin Louis, Sumedh Mudgalkar and Mallika Singh, Siddharth Nigam and Avneet Kaur are likely to participate.Further, Nach Baliye 9 is likely to be produced by Salman Khan’s production venture that is also co-producing TV show – The Kapil Sharma Show. Not just that, the dance reality show will have superhot actress Jennifer Winget as host. Joining Jennifer as a co-host will be Sunil Grover, who will tickle the audience’s funny bones.

China does not want UN to push Myanmar on accountability

first_imgUnited NationsChina does not want the UN Security Council to tell Myanmar that credible, transparent investigations into accusations of violence against mainly Rohingya Muslims are important, according to proposed amendments to a British-drafted statement.The 15-member Security Council is trying to negotiate a press statement following a visit by UN envoys to Bangladesh and Myanmar last week to see firsthand the aftermath of a Myanmar military crackdown that Britain, the United States and others have denounced as ethnic cleansing of the minority Rohingya.Britain wanted the council to state “the importance of undertaking credible and transparent investigations into allegations of human rights abuses and violations” and “continue to support efforts to ensure justice and accountability.”Its draft statement would also “urge the government of Myanmar to fulfill urgently its stated commitment to holding accountable perpetrators of violence, including sexual violence and abuse and violence against children.”However, Myanmar ally China deleted those references in amendments it has proposed to that statement, which must be agreed by consensus. China also proposed welcoming “the efforts taken by the government of Myanmar to improve the situation in Rakhine” state.Diplomats said negotiations were continuing.Rohingya insurgent attacks on security posts in Rakhine in August sparked a military operation that has sent nearly 700,000 Rohingya fleeing to refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh. Security Council envoys visited those vast camps last week.They also met with Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and Myanmar’s de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi and traveled to Rakhine state, where the violence erupted. Myanmar denies the accusations of ethnic cleansing.Fleeing refugees have reported killings, rapes and arson on a large scale. Myanmar has said its operations in Rakhine were a legitimate response to attacks on security forces by Rohingya insurgents.Myanmar military chief Min Aung Hlaing told Security Council envoys, during a two-hour meeting in Naypyitaw, the country’s capital, last week, that less than 2,000 troops were involved in the military operation, according to diplomats, who spoke on condition of anonymity.The prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) has asked the court to rule on whether it has jurisdiction over the deportations of Rohingyas to Bangladesh, a possible crime against humanity.Suu Kyi’s government has expressed “serious concern” over the move at the ICC. Bangladesh is a member of the ICC but Myanmar is not. Rights groups have called on the UN Security Council to adopt a resolution referring the situation in Myanmar to the court.last_img read more

Mitsubishi Celebrates 100 Years Of Automaking By Electrifying Its First Car

first_imgWay back in 1917, the Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Company built its first — and only — car: the Mitsubishi Model A. Now, 100 years later, Mitsubishi Motors is paying homage to the vehicle that got its wheels turning.How? By building a brand new Model A with a decidedly modern twist. Mitsubishi’s 2017 Model A will be a plug-in hybrid, though a Mitsubishi spokesperson pointed out that the car will “will feature all the distinctive aspects of the 1917 vehicle.”The original Model A was a four-door, seven-seater. It featured a 2.8L four-cylinder engine that pushed 35 horsepower to the rear wheels. The cars were all hand-built, and were expensive to produce. Mitsubishi built its last Model A in 1921 and spent the next four decades focusing on commercial vehicles.To rebuild their classic four-door, Mitsubishi has called on the crew at West Coast Customs, which you may be familiar with from the MTV series Pimp My Ride. The project will be built on the platform that Mitsubishi uses in one of its hottest selling vehicles (outside of North America, that is), the Outlander PHEV. It’s a very logical choice, given that the Outlander is also a four-door vehicle that features seating for seven (at least in some configs).In addition to the Outlander’s twin-motor, four-wheel-drive system, Autoblog notes that the Model A will be tricked out with “a host of current technology.” We’re genuinely hoping that WCC stops well short of installing a Playstation 4 in the back seat.If you want to check out the results — or the build process — keep an eye on the Velocity Channel. They’ll be running an episode of Inside West Cost Customs that features the Model A PHEV.last_img read more

Linus Torvalds calls Intels SpectreMeltdown patches utter garbage

first_imgLinus Torvalds calls Intel’s Spectre/Meltdown patches utter garbage by Mike Turcotte-McCusker on January 25, 2018 in Linux – 32 commentsLinus Torvalds is the mastermind behind Linux, and well known for his very colourful opinions on things, like the time he flipped NVIDIA the finger. Yeah, he did that.This time, Torvalds is getting rather vocal about his views on the patches released by Intel to deal with Spectre and Meltdown. I’m going to have to sensor some of the quotes in this article, but you can read the full flavoured ones for yourself.“You seem to have bought into the cool-aid. Please add a healthy dose of critical thinking. Because this isn’t the kind of cool-aid that makes for a fun trip with pretty pictures. This is the kind that melts your brain.”Another such example being, “WHAT THE $@!$ IS GOING ON? And that’s ignoring the much _worse_ issue, namely that the whole hardware interface is mis-designed by morons.”Torvalds made these statements and many others in a rather long message sent out in the unofficial Linux Kernel Mailing List archive on Sunday, Jan. 21. I would also like to add that the main homepage for the website itself, is not without its sass, reading,“LKML.ORG?In case you haven’t read the title bar of your web browser’s window: this site is the (unofficial) Linux Kernel Mailing List archive. This mailing list is a rather high-volume list, where (technical) discussions on the design of, and bugs in the Linux kernel take place. If that scares you, please read the FAQ.”That said, none of this really should be many surprises.Torvalds ends off his post by saying, “I think we need something better than this garbage.”So, Torvalds once again has made headlines in the tech world for coming out and being very colourful in his opinions, but, often people support his reasoning and his logic for his rants.Related articlesGibson releases InSpectre vulnerability and performance checkerHow to update Intel hardware driversMicrosoft releases out-of-band security updates to address Intel bugRedHat reverts patches to mitigate Spectre Variant 2SummaryDescriptionLinus Torvalds got rather vocal about his views on the patches released by Intel to deal with Spectre and Meltdown.Author Mike TurcottePublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Trump and Brexit gay whistleblowers call for second Brexit referendum

first_imgGot a news tip? Want to share your story? Email us . Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… Today the Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Chris Wylie and friend, Vote Leave whistleblower Shahmir Sanni, stood together outside the UK Parliment. They want UK citizens to have a second chance to vote on Brexit because: ‘Vote Leave cheated.’The pair, both gay, made the comments in front of an avid crowd of pro-remain supporters – despite being eurosceptics.Even though they are happy with the result, they want another ‘fair vote’ because of the level of cheating they witnessed.Shahmir told Gay Star News: ‘I am and always will be a leaver – but I’m not a cheater.’Wylie says that without the Cambridge Anaylitca linked firm’s help – Vote Leave would not have won the campaign.The UK voted to leave the European Union by a slim two percent majority in 2016.The data firm Cambridge Analytica also worked on President Donald Trump’s election campaign. They also face accusations of harvesting as many as 50 million Facebook profiles without permission.Chris Wylie is the gay Candian man behind Cambridge Analytica’s incredibly powerful data ‘monster.’ The Observer who broke the news of the extent of Analytica’s harvesting last week describes the firm as:‘Cambridge Analytica is “Chris’s Frankenstein. He created it. It’s his data Frankenmonster. And now he’s trying to put it right.’Despite voting leave, since being outed by the UK Government – Shahmir Sanni is calling for a Fair VoteBrexit campaigner Shahmir Sanni’s actions could have been pivotal in Vote Leave winning the referendum. He campaigned with the group Be Leave.Ahead of the event tonight, Shahmir tells GSN though he always will believe in leaving the European Union, he speaks tonight because he is not a cheater.He was outed in an official Downing Street statement last week from a special adviser to British Prime Minister Theresa.Sanni was just about to release the series of explosive claims about Vote Leave.Stephen Parkinson, who he tonight called his ex-boyfriend, revealed in an official Downing Street official statement the two had ‘dated’ for 18 months. Parkinson is a special adviser to the British Prime Minister Theresa May.In the statement, Parkinson accuses Sanni of blowing the whistle for personal reasons and ‘blurred lines’ about their relationship.Sanni’s lawyers say this is the first time someone has been outed by an official UK Government statement. It’s something that has now put his family in Pakistan in Danger. In some areas of Pakistan, being gay is punishable by death. The UK Prime Minister Theresa May has since distanced herself from the statement titled official, calling it ‘a personal statement’.Flaws in our democratic process, that could stir up homophobiaKyle Taylor, Director of The Fair Vote Project, tell GSN that all of this shows ‘serious flaws in our democratic processes.’Fair Vote are launching their campaign today because ‘democracy is more important than Brexit.’ But they are also particularly concerned about how it has affected a gay man, putting his family in danger.‘The outing of Shahmir in response to his allegations was deeply upsetting. It’s a desperate attempt to deflect from flaws in our democracy distracting the British public from the issue at hand.’ eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) Gay student is being investigated for £625,000 mystery pro-Brexit spend Both Wylie and Sanni spoke together at the Fair Vote rally tonight, where Wylie called for a second referendum. The group have been publishing data of what they believe shows cheating in the Brexit campaign.But Taylor also has a warning for LGBTI people about how this could go beyond political campaign cheating.Because of the way that Cambridge Analytica and similar firms target people: ‘This can be used to target LGBTI people with specific messages.’However, you can also identify those who are homophobic, and target posts to stir up more hate.‘Whether people have apprehensions and negative feelings towards LGBTI people – dark ads campaign could be used to play on existing homophobia.’Shahmir: They stripped me of the right to tell my mother the most important wordsIt’s been a tumultuous few days for Shahmir. Earlier this week he broke down in tears during a press conference about being outed.He told Gay Star News before the rally tonight of the pain having your coming out taken away from you:‘In my desperation to reveal the truth and tell my story; the opportunity to say the most important words of my life to my mother, my brothers, and my sisters was stripped from me.‘Despite Number 10’s disgusting actions, and Theresa May’s lies about the official statement, there’s a heavyweight that’s been lifted off my chest in the past few, very long days.’It’s a weight that he made him stay silent. Tonight he reiterated that his ex-boyfriend knew he wasn’t out to protect his family in Pakistan.‘The Political Secretary of the Prime Minister chose to use that fear and that weight against me. Knowing full well of the impact it would have.’Despite this, he says the LGBTQI+ community’s support ‘is helping to rid me of the fear and weight.’‘Now they have nothing they can use against me, except lies and fake news. I can put all of me, including gay me, behind fighting for democracy.’The £625,000 mystery pro-Brexit spend by a gay fashion studentShahmir says there was illegal coordination between Vote Leave and BeLeave. Something that ‘calls into the question the democratic values’ of the EU referendum.This data puts, yet another gay man spend for BeLeave into the fray. Darren Grimes spent £625,000 ($827,40o / €705,000) on the campaign’s behalf just days before the vote.It is this money, which last November led the UK Electoral Commission to re-open an investigation into whether Vote Leave and Grimes breached campaign finance rules. Something they both deny.Grimes allegedly racked up this spend with the digital agency, Aggregate IQ, just days before the vote. This agency has now been linked to Cambridge Analytica, by the Observer.The Electoral Commission investigation into Grimes and Vote Leave remains open.Tonight, Shahmir referred to Grimes as his friend. He says both were ‘used’ by Vote Leave to funnel ‘more money into the Vote Leave campaign.’Read More from Gay Star News:Brexit whistleblower: ‘UK stripped me of my right to come out to my mom’ This gay man is suing Facebook for allowing his data to be stolenGay Brexit whistleblower: I’ll sue the UK for outing meWhy pretty much everyone at Pride wanted a People’s Vote on BrexitRead the full article on Gaystarnews:  : Two gay whistleblowers who brought international attention to the Trump and Brexit votes have launched a campaign to expose political cheating, and call for a second Brexit Referendum.The UK has just one year before Brexit happens on 29 March 2019.
