Hundreds of Whales Die after Mass Stranding on NZ Coast

Posted by feww on February 10, 2017

Third-worst whale stranding on record leaves hundreds of Cetacea dead in NZ

At least 340 pilot whales have died after a mass stranding on Farewell Spit (Golden Bay, NZ), and about 80 were still alive tonight.

The stranding may have been due to old age, sickness, or the  whales inability to keep up with the pod. Underwater explosions caused by sonar, seismic testing or underwater sea quakes could also have an impact on them,” said a report.

Hottest February day in NSW as “extraordinary heatwave” moves across Australia

The heatwave moving across the sub continent is expected to intensify over the weekend, elevating the threat of potentially catastrophic fire conditions, authorities warned.

New South Wales could face its hottest February day on record, with temperatures reaching 47ºC in western parts of the state, said the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM).

The temperature reached 47.4ºC in Hay Airport, making it the third-hottest day recorded in February for NSW, and the record could be shattered on Saturday, said reports.

Meanwhile, Sydney set a temperature record for the number of days over 35ºC, as most of the city broiled in the 40s.

‘Fukushima Catastrophe Ongoing: Leakage continues on a daily basis’

Posted by feww on February 9, 2017

Radiation at Fukushima rising to highest level since 2011 meltdown

“[…] recent measurements showing 53,000 Rem per hour (deadly to humans within a minute or less, at close range, in the absence of radiation shielding), or higher, radiation dose rates in the melted down Unit 2 reactor at Fukushima Daiichi, Japan.”

Emergency storage tanks contain “800,000 tons of highly radioactive water … because every day they pour a hundred tons of water on each of these three melted down cores and sometimes they lose those tanks. They leak, they overflow, so it is an ongoing catastrophe,” says Kevin Kamps, radioactive waste monitor at Beyond Nuclear,

“There are many shoes that could still drop at Fukushima Daiichi. One of the ones is the high radioactive waste storage pools that aren’t even inside radiological containment. They don’t have all of that spent nuclear fuel transferred to a safer location in a couple of the units still. If something were to go wrong with that – those would be open air releases of very high-level radioactivity.

“The prime minister at the time the catastrophe began, Kan, had a contingency plan to evacuate all of Northeast Japan – up to 50 million people. It was predominantly because of those storage pools. We’re still in that predicament- if one of those pools were to go up in flames. As Tokyo plans to host the 2020 Olympics and bring in many millions of extra people into this already densely populated area –it is not a good idea.”

Nuclear Power: Explosion Rocks Flamanville NPP in France

Posted by feww on February 9, 2017

Explosion and fire reported at Flamanville NPP, N. France

About a dozen people have been injured in an explosion that rocked Flamanville Nuclear Power Plant in Manche, Cotentin Peninsula, on France’s northern coast, according to local reports.

The power plant houses two pressurized water reactors (PWRs) that produce a total of 2.6 GWe. They came into service in 1986 and 1987, respectively. Their combined annual output of about 19 TWh is the equivalent of 4.5% of the fission-electricity production in France.

Armyworm Poses a Major Threat to Food Security Worldwide

Posted by feww on February 6, 2017

Crop-Destroying Armyworm “Spreading Rapidly” in Africa –Study

Crop-destroying armyworm caterpillar is now spreading rapidly across Mainland Africa and could soon spread to tropical Asia and the Mediterranean, becoming a major threat to agriculture and food security worldwide, said CABI.

“We are now able to confirm that the fall armyworm is spreading very rapidly outside the Americas, and it can be expected to spread to the limits of suitable African habitat within just a few years. It likely travelled to Africa as adults or egg masses on direct commercial flights and has since been spread within Africa by its own strong flight ability and carried as a contaminant on crop produce,” CABI’s Chief Scientist said.

The fall armyworm destroys crop by burrows into them. It’s called the fall armyworm because it migrates into temperate North America in Autumn (fall). This pest has long been a problem throughout tropical America, damaging vital crops. It mostly affects maize (corn) but it has been recorded eating more than 100 different plant species, causing major damage to economically important cultivated grass crops such as maize, rice, sorghum and sugarcane as well as other crops including cabbage, beet, peanut, soybean, alfalfa, onion, cotton, pasture grasses, millet, tomato, potato and cotton.

Japanese Space Ship Fails to Remove Space Debris Using Earth’s Magnetic Field –Report

Japanese space cargo ship, Kounotori 6 has failed to carry out a key test of its magnetic technology to remove debris from earth’s orbit, and will renter the atmosphere today, its nationalist broadcaster said.

Launched on December 9, Kounotori 6 was programmed to deploy a 700-meter-long wires, using electric current induced by Earth’s magnetic field,  to cause space debris to slow down and re-enter the atmosphere, where they would burn up.

Politics of Conflict: The Fruitcake Chooses Molotov Cocktail Over Policy

Americans who reject Mr Trump will, naturally, fear most for what he could do to their own country. They are right to worry (see article), but they gain some protection from their institutions and the law. In the world at large, however, checks on Mr Trump are few. The consequences could be grave.”

Malaria Drugs Fail to Treat UK Patients

Posted by feww on February 1, 2017

New parasite strains show drug resistance

A frontline drug which was highly effective at treating malaria in the UK, has reportedly failed to cure four patients who contracted the disease in Africa, according to new research published in Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy.

Infective female Anopheles mosquito infect about 300 million people

Malaria is one of the most common infectious diseases  caused by protozoan parasites. It is widespread in tropical and subtropical regions, including parts of the Americas, Asia, and Africa.

Malaria parasites are micro-organisms of the genus Plasmodium. Of the more than 100 species of Plasmodium, four species can infect humans in nature.

Plasmodium falciparum is the only species that can cause severe, potentially fatal malaria because it multiples rapidly in the blood, often causing anemia (severe blood loss). Additionally, the parasites can clog small blood vessels. If this complication occurs in the brain, it causes cerebral malaria, which can be fatal.


This 2005 photograph depicted a female Anopheles albimanus mosquito while she was feeding on a human host, thereby, becoming engorged with blood.  Like other species in the genus Anopheles, A. albimanus adults hold the major axis of the body more perpendicularly to the surface of the skin when blood feeding. Anopheles spp. adults also generally feed in the evening, or early morning when it is still dark. This species is a vector of malaria, predominantly in Central America. Photo Credit:   James Gathany/CDC.

Each year infective female Anopheles mosquito infect about 300 million people, killing  about 1.5  million. About ninety percent of malaria-related deaths occur in Sub-Saharan Africa.  [Only Anopheles mosquitoes can transmit malaria, and they must have been infected through a previous blood meal taken on an infected person.

“The UK patients, who all recovered after receiving alternative treatment, were found to be infected with new strains of the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum. Although the researchers can’t rule out other factors, they believe the treatment failure was due to these strains showing reduced susceptibility, a potential first sign of drug resistance, to Artemether-lumefantrine (AL), a type of Artemisinin Combination Therapy (ACT).”
