Indonesian volcano unleashes river of lava in new eruption

first_img Facebook WhatsApp WhatsApp Local NewsWorld News YOGYAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — Indonesia’s most active volcano erupted Wednesday with a river of lava and searing gas clouds flowing 3,000 meters (nearly 10,000 feet) down its slopes. No casualties were reported. The sounds of the eruption could be heard 30 kilometers (18 miles) away, officials said. It was Mount Merapi’s biggest lava flow since authorities raised its danger level in November, said Hanik Humaida, the head of Yogyakarta’s Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation Center. She said the volcano’s lava dome is growing rapidly, causing hot lava and gas clouds to flow down its slopes. After morning rain, the ashfall turned into muck in several villages. More than 150 people, mostly elderly, living within 5 kilometers (3 miles) of the crater were evacuated to barracks set up for displaced people. Authorities in November had evacuated nearly 2,000 people living on the mountain in Magelang and Sleman districts but most have since returned. The alert is being maintained at the second-highest level and authorities told people to stay out of an existing danger zone around the crater. The 2,968-meter (9,737-foot) volcano is on densely populated Java island near the ancient city of Yogyakarta. It is the most active of dozens of Indonesian volcanoes and has repeatedly erupted with lava and gas clouds recently. Merapi’s last major eruption in 2010 killed 347 people. Indonesia, an archipelago of 270 million people, is prone to earthquakes and volcanic activity because it sits along the Pacific “Ring of Fire,” a horseshoe-shaped series of seismic fault lines around the ocean.

The adjournment came in the view of Justice Mukta Gupta not holding the Court for the day. Senior Advocates Geeta Luthra and Rajiv Nayar requested the Court to list the matter for further arguments. The matter will now be heard on May 5. The criminal defamation case was filed by MJ Akbar in a Delhi Court in October 2018, after he was accused by several women of sexual harassment, following a tweet by Ramani as part of the ‘#MeToo’ movement, revealing that the person referred to as a sexual harasser in an earlier article written by her in ‘The Vogue’ was Akbar. A Delhi Court on February 17 acquitted Priya Ramani in the Case. “Woman has a right to put up the grievance at any platform of her choice even after decades. Woman cannot be punished for raising voice agains sex abuse . Right to reputation cannot be protected at the cost of right to dignity”, the trial Court observed while acquitting Priya Ramani in the case. Senior Advocate Geeta Luthra represented Mr. MJ Akbar whereas Ms. Priya Ramani was represented by Senior Advocate Rebecca John before the Delhi Court.Next Storylast_img read more

So, there’s a good number of young men and women from our area in the company. They’ll have the opportunity to come home for Thanksgiving before actual deployment if $10,000 can be raise to help defer the cost of the bus transportation.Arrangements are being made through the unit’s Family Readiness Group, which will pay half of the $20,000 cost of the five buses needed to bring the soldiers home for Thanksgiving. Funds are being raised to bring all the soldiers of the 158th home for Thanksgiving.

But, if their families can raise $10,000, they will be home for Thanksgiving.The 158th Support Maintenance Company is based in Tallassee but is made up of soldiers from across the state, including soldiers from Brundidge, Troy and Brantley.The company is currently training at Camp Atterbury, Indiana in preparation for deployment in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Their mobilization will be for about 365 days. “The soldiers must come as a unit,” said Tillery of Troy. “Either they all come or none of them come. We are trying to raise money through the families but not all of the families are able to contribute and $10,000 is a lot of money to raise, especially with times the way they are.”Tillery said many of the soldiers are young married people.“I think about 17 of them have either just gotten married or are expecting babies,” she said. “There’s one young woman whose husband was killed in a car accident six months ago. She has two little girls but she’s having to go because her number came up. It would mean so much to all of these soldiers to be able to spend Thanksgiving with their families.”Tillery said this will be the one and last chance that the soldiers of the 158th Support Maintenance Company have to see their loved ones before they “go across the water,” she said. “Mark is my youngest son. He’s only 20 years old but we’ve been through a lot together. Having him go is like losing my right arm.

Grizzly bear kills hunter in first-of-its-kind attack in largest US national park

first_imgKenCanning/iStockBy JON HAWORTH, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A grizzly bear mauled and killed a hunter in a first-of-its-kind attack at a national park in Alaska.The incident happened on Sept. 20 in the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve, a 13.2-million-acre area located in southeast Alaska, while the hunter was on a 10-day moose hunt with a friend near the Chisana River drainage at the time of the mauling.The death of the hunter is the first known bear mauling fatality recorded at Wrangell-St. Elias — which is the same size as Yellowstone National Park, Yosemite National Park, and Switzerland combined — since the park was established 40 years ago in 1980, according to the United States National Park Service.The exact injuries the hunter suffered were not disclosed and nobody else was injured in the attack.“Visitors are encouraged to be Bear Aware when traveling in the backcountry and take precautions such as carrying bear spray and using Bear Resistant Food Containers,” said NPS in a statement following the incident.Designated as a World Heritage Site with Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, the Canadian neighbors Kluane National Park & Reserve and Tatshenshini-Alsek Provincial Park, Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve is the largest of all U.S. national parks, the world’s largest international protected wilderness area, and has nine of the 16 highest peaks in the United States.The identity of the deceased hunter is being withheld pending investigation, according to the National Park Service.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

HMAS Perth Gets Australian Radar System

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today HMAS Perth Gets Australian Radar System Share this article Equipment & technology View post tag: Navy View post tag: HMAS Navy’s new anti-ship missile defence radar system has been released for initial operational use after achieving outstanding results from the trial of the system off the coast of Australia and Hawaii.The new multi-phased array radar system has been installed on the Anzac-class frigate HMAS Perth.The radar identifies, tracks and guides missiles to multiple targets at the same time.Minister for Defence Materiel Jason Clare inspected the radar at work on-board HMAS Perth while it was conducting training exercises off the coast of Western Australia.“This is the latest weapon in Navy’s arsenal. It means our Anzac frigates will be a lot more capable,” Mr Clare said.“At the moment our Anzac frigates can track and destroy one target at a time. This new radar means they will now be able to track and destroy multiple targets at the same time.“This is also a great Australian success story. It’s cutting-edge technology developed right here in Australia by CEA Technologies.”Chief of Navy Vice Admiral Ray Griggs said HMAS Perth had just returned from testing the system on the United States Navy Pacific Missile Range Facility in Hawaii with tremendous results.“The tests proved that the new system can defend the ship from modern cruise missile attack. This is a significant enhancement for the Anzac-class frigates.”HMAS Perth is the lead ship in this project. Following the successful testing of the system on this ship, the Government will soon make a decision about upgrading the other seven Anzac-class frigates.[mappress]Source: minister.defence, September 6, 2011; View post tag: gets September 6, 2011 View post tag: system View post tag: Naval View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Perth View post tag: radar View post tag: Australian HMAS Perth Gets Australian Radar Systemlast_img read more

New Vice-Chancellor named

first_imgThe nominee for Oxford’s next Vice-Chancellor has been named as Professor Andrew Hamilton, the current Provost of Yale University. Hamilton will become the 296th Vice-Chancellor when John Hood ends his five-year tenure in October 2009, if Congregation approves the decision made by the Nominating Committee.He described the decision as “humbling” and “inspiring”. Dons have suggested that there will be little opposition to the nomination and have largely welcomed the decision to back someone from an academic background – a departure from Hood’s nomination as a candidate with business credentials. Hamilton is Benjamin Silliman Professor of Chemistry and Professor of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry at Yale, in addition to his role as Provost. He has been recognised internationally for his academic achievements.Nicholas Bamforth, a member of the University’s Council, said, “It is good to have a distinguished academic nominated for this post.” A senior member of the University also approved the choice to opt for such a prominent academic. “I very much welcome the fact that Professor Hamilton is a distinguished academic as well as a successful University administrator,” he said.However another professor has criticised the decision to ignore Oxford’s own candidates and again appoint a V-C from outside the University. He said, “He is clearly a man of ability in terms of academic stature, which is very different to Hood, but he has no connection with Oxford and this is quite clearly undesirable.”He also claimed that the Nominating Committee, which is chaired by the Oxford Chancellor Lord Patten, was “determined to exclude” candidates from the University’s own academic body and to appoint an “outsider”. He claimed this marked a “continued and gratuitous support for Hood.” He added that the nomination had been used for the ends of “internal politics”, with the consequence of ignoring candidates from within the University.Despite this criticism the academic admitted that Congregation was unlikely to seriously challenge Hamilton’s appointment and that any likely opposition would be “small”. Dons are now looking to the challenges Hamilton would face during his tenure and have suggested a number of key tasks he must tackle in order to lead the University to its future.A senior academic said the new V-C would need to smooth over rifts between dons that have recently occurred. “His main task will be to heal the divisions on ‘Hoodism’ and ‘anti-Hoodism’ that has risen in the last few years,” he said.Another member of the University expressed hope that Hamilton could adapt to the Oxford system and go ahead with reforms to the University.“He comes here from North America where, unlike Oxford, the senior academic officers of universities are appointed rather than elected by their colleagues.But he will surely have done his research by the time he arrives, and have understood that the most successful Vice-Chancellors have recognised that Oxford is much more like a partnership than like a business corporation, and have conducted themselves as ”primus inter pares” (first among equals) rather than Chief Executives. “I hope he takes an open-minded look at Oxford and works with his colleagues to make the reforms that are urgently needed to increase the quality and value-for-money of the services provided by the administration,” he said.Hamilton has been Provost of Yale since 2004 in which time he has lead a number of developments, including the acquisition of a new a 136-acre research campus.Professor Hamilton announced the nomination in an email to colleagues at Yale on Tuesday. “I am enormously honoured and excited at the prospect of helping steward one of the great centres of scholarship in the world,” he wrote.Hamilton is held in particularly high regard at Yale where both students and academics say he will be greatly missed. The President of Yale, Richard Levin, said, “Andy Hamilton has led major initiatives to strengthen Yale in science, engineering, and medicine while at the same time enthusiastically supporting investments in the humanities, social sciences, and the arts. He is a first-rate scholar, who is respected by his faculty colleagues as a wise academic leader.”A comment on the website of Yale’s student newspaper, Yale Daily News, described Hamilton as “A great guy and a fantastic provost” and added, “Yale will certainly miss him.”The Chancellor of Oxford University, Lord Patten of Barnes, who chaired the Nominating Committee, said, “Andrew Hamilton’s remarkable combination of proven academic leadership and outstanding scholarly achievement makes him an exceptional choice to help guide us into the second decade of the twenty-first century.”He added, “This is a particularly exciting time for Oxford and in Professor Hamilton we have someone with the experience and talent to help us take advantage of these opportunities.”The current Vice-Chancellor, Dr John Hood, said, “I am delighted that Professor Hamilton has been nominated as the next Vice-Chancellor of Oxford, from Autumn 2009. I look forward very much to assisting him in any way I can to prepare for his new role. “For my own part, I shall remain fully committed over the next sixteen months to the University it is my privilege to serve,” he added.last_img read more
