Three-year-old missing in NC forest said a bear kept him safe + Seeds sprout on moon

first_imgSeeds were just sprouted on the moon for the first time everThis month, cotton seeds on China’s Chang’e-4 lander became the first plants to ever germinate on the moon. The seeds are part of a biosphere experiment to help prepare for future human settlement on the moon. Photos sent to earth showed the cotton seeds sprouting on January 7. Less than a week later, however, the sprouts had died thanks to freezing lunar nighttime temperatures that reached -62 degrees Fahrenheit. The seeds were kept in a sealed growing chamber and will not contaminate the lunar surface. The experiment also included oilseed rape, potato, Arabidopsis seeds, as well as yeast and fruit flies. If humans are to ever settle on the moon, growing plants will be essential to survival, and scientists say the experiment was a great success. Three-year-old missing in NC forest said a bear kept him safeCasey Hathaway, a North Carolina three-year-old who went missing from his grandmother’s yard, has been found alive after spending two nights in the forest in freezing temperatures. The wind and rain became so bad while Casey was missing that authorities urged volunteers to stay home, and Casey was not dressed for the weather. But when rescuers, who searched the area with helicopters, drones, K-9 units, and divers, heard a crying baby, they found Casey tangled in thorny bushes, cold and wet but otherwise healthy. The boy told rescuers, and later his family, that a friendly bear kept him safe during his ordeal. Bear experts say the story is likely a figment of the boy’s imagination. Regardless, the child escaped with a few scratches, asking rescuers for some water and his mother. Here’s how much exercise you need to make it to age 90A new study in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health has identified how much exercise men and women need to have the best shot at living to the age of 90. Researchers from the Netherlands studied data collected from 7,807 people born between 1916 and 1917. The participants completed a lifestyle survey between the ages of 68 and 70 and then researches followed them until they died or hit their 90th birthdays, leaving 5,479 people. The study found that men who completed 90 minutes of physical activity a day were 39 percent more likely to reach 90 than their peers who exercised for less than 30 minutes per day. Each additional 30 minutes of exercise was associated with a 5 percent increase in turning 90. Women who exercised 30 to 60 minutes each day improved their chances of reaching 90 by 21 percent. Moving more than 60 minutes each day did not have a significant impact on longevity in women. In the U.S., the average life expectancy in men is 76 and 81 in women.last_img read more

Dutch pension fund to invest 5% of assets in residential mortgages

first_imgThe €1.5bn pension fund of coffee processor Douwe Egberts (DEPF) is planning invest 5% of its assets in Dutch residential mortgages at the expense of its allocation to euro-denominated government bonds. According to its website, it expects to achieve better returns against “very limited additional risk, as most of these mortgages have been issued under government guarantee”.However, at the same time, it pointed out that it would not expand the new allocation due to illiquidity.Currently, the pension fund has a 32.5% allocation to the government bonds of France, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and Austria. But the pension fund said it did not expect the currently low returns on euro-denominated government paper to improve any time soon.It said it would invest in the Dutch Mortgage Fund of Aegon Asset Management.It also confirmed it would keep its interest swaps, to cover 50% of the interest risk on its liabilities.The pension fund’s decision reflects a wider trend of Dutch pension funds replacing government bond holdings in part with mortgages.Last month, the €55bn metal scheme PMT invested €1bn in mortgages through the Dutch Mortgage Funding Company (DMFCO), which offers direct investments under the label Munt Hypotheken.At the same time, the €17bn pension fund PGB and the €6.8bn scheme of steelworks Hoogovens invested €500m each through DMFCO.Recently, Jeroen van Hessen, managing partner at DMFCO, said it expected to issue €3bn in mortgages over the next 18 months.Aegon and Syntrus Achmea, which runs the Particuliere Hypothekenfonds, have estimated that their funds will hold €6bn in combined mortgage investments by the end of this year.Dutch pension funds are still waiting for further developments on the Nederlandse Hypotheek-instelling (NHI), a new institution that is to issue government-backed mortgage bonds.However, the start of the NHI has already been delayed by several months, following an EU investigation into possible state support.The NHI aimed to issue €25bn in mortgage bonds over the next five years.last_img read more

The truth of today will not be that of February. It is true that this team has changed coach. We must not forget the material it has available. “If tomorrow, these players come back to their best levels, we are facing a very high level team. Alexis Sanchez, (Marcus) Rashford or (Romelu) Lukaku are not at their best.

I’ve worked with him for over a year and he’s done so well to get back from a horrendous injury, and he’s been out there every day in training trying his very best to get better and show me that he’s a good player. Unfortunately, he’s found a guy like Patrick van Aanholt in front of him.“Today was the day that I was hoping to get him on the field of play and show what he shows us in training and come off the field victorious and happy. To come off injured was a bitter blow, and it was an unfortunate thing where he was bowled over, fell awkwardly and picked up a shoulder injury. I can only hope that he can recover quickly, but it’s not a minor injury; it could keep him out for weeks.” last_img read more

Mohawk coffee roaster says he was forced to ditch insurance over Quebec

first_imgTom FennarioAPTN NewsWalter David stands on his toes before pouring a large bag of green raw coffee beans into the top of his coffee roasting oven.“Don’t film this part,” David says, pointing to a computer screen displaying the oven’s automated time and temperature settings, “they’re trade secrets.”Moccasin Jo brand coffee, a business David owns with his wife Lise, is an award winning coffee roaster.A big reason why it’s so popular is because David is meticulous.(Walter David in his shop in Kanesatake Mohawk Territory)He lords over the freshly roasted coffee as it cools at the bottom, looking for any imperfection in the beans as a metal blade turns them over.“These are off beans,” he says, showing off a small handful he’s removed from the latest batch. “And a lot of times, these are unripe or bug infested sometimes at origin, so they have to be separated otherwise it ends up in a cup (of coffee.)”Coffee isn’t the only thing David is meticulous with.As a Mohawk, he’s adamant about defending his rights.He recently dumped his insurance company of 30 years because they insisted on charging him Quebec taxes, even though his home and business are in Kanesatake Mohawk territory.“They wanted us to pay for it, and then get reimbursed by the government,” says David. “No, the principle here is you insulted us, and that’s it. You insulted us by saying we don’t exist.”David says the insurance company told him that Kanesatake is too much of a patchwork reserve to verify his claims of living there.The insurance company declined a request from APTN News for comment.David says his dispute over taxes with the company is not recorded anywhere.“We asked for proof, we asked for it written, she refused to give anything written to us,” says David.Grand Chief Serge Simon confirms that David lives and works within the 12 square kilometres that the federal government recognizes as reserve land – although Kanesatake’s unceded territory is hundreds of times that.Still, Simon emphasizes that by Quebec and Canada’s own rules, David is within his rights.Quebec’s own tax laws clearly state that provincial sales tax does not apply to services rendered on reserve to a status Indian.“He has certain inalienable rights, and he can’t have that taken away from him,” says Simon. “If I allow this to happen to him, I allow it to happen to the rest of us, so it’s within our collective interests to do something about that.”The Mohawk council says they will intervene on behalf of David and anybody else who has their non-taxable status threatened.And there are potential avenues when it comes to David’s case.Because insurance is regulated, every province and territory in Canada has an ombudsman that will investigate complaints.David said for him it’s not about the money, but standing up for his rights as a Mohawk.“I think everybody here needs to get together on this whole issue,” concluded David.In the meantime David will keep roasting his coffee.He might just need to be more cautious than usual…Moccasin Joe is currently operating without [email protected]@tfennariolast_img read more

EU warns UNSC against military action in Venezuela

first_imgUnited Nations: European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini warned Tuesday that military action in Venezuela would be unacceptable and that a solution to the crisis should not be “imposed from outside,” putting the United States on notice. Addressing the Security Council, Mogherini said the standoff between President Nicolas Maduro and opposition leader Juan Guaido must be resolved though political, peaceful and democratic means. “We believe that no military development, from inside or outside of the country, would be acceptable,” Mogherini told a council meeting on cooperation between the European Union and the United Nations. Also Read – Imran Khan arrives in China, to meet Prez Xi Jinping”And a solution cannot be, and should never be, imposed from the outside.” President Donald Trump has repeatedly said that all options are on the table, refusing to rule out a US military intervention in Venezuela, which is in the grips of an economic meltdown that the opposition blames on the Maduro government. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo late Monday announced that the United States will withdraw all remaining diplomatic personnel from its embassy in Caracas, worsening already tattered relations. After Guaido declared himself Venezuela’s interim president, the United States and key EU countries France, Germany and Britain were among more than 50 countries that recognized him. Russia and China, two of the five veto-wielding council members along with the US, France and Britain, have denounced the US stance as blatant interference in Venezuela’s affairs and continue to back Maduro.last_img read more
