George Clooney's satellite spies reveal secrets of Sudan's bloody army

Actor and activist funds from a high-tech project is the monitoring of troops and civilians against attacks Warning

Nathaniel Raymond is the first to admit he has an unusual job description. "I have the tank space to George Clooney," said the native of height, tolerant of Massachusetts while sitting in a conference room at a map of the Darfur region of South Kordofan.

nearby, pins and ink doodles on the map detail the positions of the Sudanese armed forces and refugee populations in the restive oil-producing province, where the Sudanese army is conducting a brutal repression.

the wall next to Raymond has a series of images projected on it by satellite. In the film a mouse, small images of tanks and military vehicles came into view, trapped by a few hundred miles above satellite.

Raymond is the director of the Sentinel satellite (SSP), which aims to use advanced satellite imagery to monitor potential human rights violations in Sudan. And it was all thought of Clooney, making it just another Hollywood liberal with a pet cause and a true expert and activist in Sudan. With John Prendergast, another activist, Clooney slipped several times in the country to document the random bombing of civilians and other atrocities.

After a trip last month in the Nuba Mountains, Clooney dodged rockets and returned with grisly images of dead bodies, children with hands missing and entire villages are forced to live in caves. He showed the film to the Committee on Senate Foreign Relations in Washington DC - to the praise of politicians met -. Then arrested in a protest outside the Sudanese Embassy

Clooney pictures taken in handcuffs appeared in newspapers and blogs around the world. But he is at work Sentinel satellite project every day that really felt the impact Clooney. He had the idea, and I spoke to Google and DigitalGlobe satellite company to help set up, and donated large speaking fees to keep it funded. It has been running for 15 months already.

The situation in Sudan is complex and violent. Since the majority of black South Sudan in Africa gained independence from the border dominated by northern Arabs dispute exploded last year, especially over oil resources in the region. Meanwhile, powerful figures in the fear that the northern provinces along the southern border with his new neighbor can also try to free themselves from Khartoum.

work was originally designed primarily as collecting evidence that could be used in war crimes tribunal the future leaders of Sudan. But the image was so accurate that it could also be used to monitor requests for massacres and mass graves. After someone on the ground described seeing the bodies buried in a mango grove in the town of Kadugli, the SAP was able to document the site of the air. He also discovered what appeared to be body bags found in fresh graves in other parts of the city.

also showed the troops around the towns and villages burned. In an amazing set of images, even caught a transport plane Antonov - Sudan's regular forces drop bombs - caught in flight with smoke plumes, where explosives were thrown against civilian targets

Mongolia bids to keep city cool with 'ice shield' experiment

Aa trial

winter temperatures geoengineering aims to 'shop' in a giant block of ice to cool the water and Ulaanbaatar in summer

Mongolia is to launch one of the largest glaciers in the world by experimenting later this month in an attempt to fight against the harmful effects of global warming and the effect of urban heat island .


The trial, which is funded by the Government of Ulaanbaatar, is to "store" the freezing temperatures of winter in a huge block of ice and water will help cool the city, as it melts slowly during the summer.

The scientists who conducted the

1 billion Tugrik (£ 460,000) for the project hope that the process will reduce the energy demand of air conditioners and drinking water supplies and regular irrigation . If successful, the model could be applied to other cities in the Far North.

The qualities of naleds (also known as aufeis, German for "ice on top") have been known for hundreds of years. The North Korean army used to construct the crossing of the River reservoirs during the winter and Russia was used as drilling platforms. But engineers generally regarded in negative terms, as a threat to the railways and bridges.

The Anglo-Mongolia believe that the proposed use in Ulaanbaatar could set a positive example that allows northern cities around the world to save on air conditioning costs in summer, a steady supply of alcohol use, and create microclimates costs.

"Everyone is panicking about melting glaciers and ice caps, but no one has yet found a cheap alternative, environment," said Robin Grayson a geologist Mongolia-based. "If you know how to handle, shields naled ice permafrost can repair and construction of parks in cold cities." He said that the process works in cities where the summer is extremely hot and winters with at least a couple of months with temperatures of-20C to 5C.

Activists were told that many injured when police fired on demonstrators in the Damascus suburb of Daraya. According to the protesters, at least 24 people died in what was called "Friday," a slogan taken from protesters against Hosni Mubarak in Egypt in early Arab insurgency.

Alma will give us a glimpse back in time to the beginnings of the universe

The largest astronomical project in the world will see years of dust than 13 billion light years - because it was half a billion years after the Big Bang

These photons. Two main things that determine what can be learned from a set of telescopes, as the new ALMA telescope in Chile. How many photons are gathering, and what is its wavelength?

Alma is important - the largest astronomical project in the world - so you can make a lot of photons. In particular, you can pick up enough to see things that are very small, light sources such as galaxies, stars and billions of light years away cosmic dust. As photons travel at the speed of light, when looking very distant objects are also looking back in time because light takes millions or billions of years to get to you.

ALMA will be able to see the dust that is about 13 billion light years. The universe is about 13.5 billion years, so the powder is "only" about half a billion years after the Big Bang. The world was different then. Well, you can expect to be. Certainly, a 13-year and a half years, is very different from a baby six months old.

At that time, stars or galaxies were "first generation". They were the first nuclear reactor, which jumped and said "Let there be light" in a dark universe. These stars have begun the process of creating heavy elements like iron, and when they died as supernovae ( colossal explosions) that share the goodness around. After the second or third generation stars like our sun, and could start to have planets with iron cores and forms of carbon-based life. Alma is the dust that formed the first stars and galaxies.

models of wavelengths, then we say that atoms and molecules exist there. In fact, the pattern is shifted wavelengths, depending on the speed, which depends on the distance, so it's also a way to work at a distance which is a bit. For example, carbon monoxide is produced in star-forming regions of galaxies, and has a different set of models that will allow Alma to measure the composition and distance of the birthplaces of stars.

E coli outbreak leads to French ban on seeds from British firm

eight people taken to hospital in Bordeaux, France and Great Britain with an examination of three types of seeds by the supplier of Suffolk

security officials are investigating a connection between food seeds sold by a British company and a

Frédéric Lefebvre said Minister of Commerce of the prohibition of fenugreek seeds, mustard and arugula participation.

But he added:. "The relationship between symptoms and the appearance of food so far has not been definitively established"

The FSA said it was asked Thompson & Morgan for more information on seeds. He added that none of

Male deep-sea squid seeks mate of either sex for fun in the dark

remotely operated underwater lift the lid on sexual blind deepwater squid

Scientists have identified any other incident that could result from sex in the dark after filming creatures that live in the deep ocean.


sequences revealed that the man submersible offshore squid struggle to distinguish between potential partners and members of the same sex in the waters of low light.

But rather than develop more acute senses to help find a mate, the male of the species adopted a sexual strategy to adapt to the following conditions. His companions with any deepwater squid comes through aa

researchers blame the bad light, similar in size of male and female body and the scarcity of blind dating behavior of the squid, which leaves its mark on the bodies of unsuspecting men as sperm sacks last.

Henk-Jan Hoving

, a marine biologist at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute in California, said the semen was lost, apparently cheaper for people to improve their ability to detect females.

His team found evidence that squid "Shot in the Dark" for sex when examined screenshots of video recorded at depths of 400-800 meters in the canyon in Marine offshore Monterey California. To his surprise, many males than females made sperm bags are produced in your body, a sure sign that the men had attempted to copulate with them.

. When the second squid, the male releases a bag full of semen that is discharged into the tissues of the female. The event is fast, but leaves the empty bags of sperm in the female body as an outward sign of recent mating.

underwater images of squid in action was recorded by robotic submersibles between 1992 and 2011. Although the squid were filmed 108, 15 were under age and in 54 cases it was impossible to determine the maturity of squid, sex, or bags of sperm were present in the bodies of animals.

Among the remaining squid were 19 women and 20 men, 10 women and 9 men had bags of sperm visible on their bodies. Those who remained were men in such positions that have been left by other males, researchers say.

The final tableau of Science, Technology and Industry published by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) shows that U.S. universities are leading the way for research worldwide.

top 50 research institutions in all areas are 40 American universities - leading to a large extent by the chemistry, computer science and neuroscience. The UK has the second highest number of major research universities. The report highlights the strength of the leading institutions in the UK for thematic areas such as agricultural science and biological and environmental sciences.

The U.S. also leads the ranking of the reputation of universities around the world earlier this year, taking almost half of the 100 best places in the UK boasting the second largest number of 'renowned universities.

research and development represented $ 400 billion spending in the U.S. in 2009, the highest of the countries compared. China and Japan spent the highest amounts of the second and third place respectively.

(The latter is uneasy listening: Nolan does not seem somehow to get the right tone, as it seems obscene Victoria Derbyshire, rather than journalism.). Anyway, besides all this, I have a new hero. His name is Mo Ibrahim, and he is a businessman cell phone: not my usual genre, but we must move with the times. And Mo is definitely the time. As guest editor Tuesday

Ibrahim, who is British and Sudan, has created an award which recognizes African countries show that they are corrupt.

Anyway, Davis met Ibrahim at the end of the program. His speech was cut a little short, but the BBC website in its entirety. Davis asked Ibrahim of "lubrication" in business, the idea that in some places, it does nothing unless you bribe the right people.

"This is absolute shit," said Ibrahim and launched a tirade on the line. "For every corrupt politician, there are dozens of corrupt business people," he said. "How many traders have been prosecuted for corruption? They are honored here. You give them titles. It makes them masters. "

Chimps to be spared from use in US medical experiments

American scientific group urges strict limits on laboratory research with chimpanzees

chimpanzees should only be used for medical research, a group of leading scientists said Thursday that the U.S. government -. Council refers to days in the laboratory can be said because the parents of the man

The Institute of Medicine came to recommend the absolute rights activists ban animals had lobbied for.

Instead, he urged strict limits to invasive experiments on chimpanzees essentially a last resort, now the tools of the most advanced research: the use of primates will rarely sufficient to offset the moral costs.

Chimp research and has been declining faster than scientists have turned to alternative, less costly and ethically.

The government agency of the United States in charge of it - the National Institutes of Health -. He called the new recommendations "scientifically sound" and noted that some changes would be

"Although the operational details need to be resolved, the NIH intends to approve the general conclusions of the group," said Dr. Francis Collins, director of NIH.

genetic similarity of the people of apes long ago caused a dilemma. This is what has become so valuable to scientists for nearly a century.

They are essential in creating a vaccine against hepatitis B, for example, and were shot down, even in space to ensure that the trip would not kill the next astronauts online.

"We established the criteria that will set the bar high enough to justify the use of chimpanzees."

for biomedical research - testing new drugs or giving the animal a disease - which means the use of chimpanzees as if the studies can be performed in other animals or people themselves, and if it gives chimpanzee studies that impede progress against life-threatening or disabling other diseases.

The panel recommended the government to limit the use of chimpanzees in research on behavior as well, saying that such studies should provide insights into the brain and behavior that are otherwise inaccessible -. And use techniques that minimize any pain or distress

Why is the US so afraid of me? | Raquel Gutiérrez

Am I blacklisted

? I was surprised when the plane he was traveling in was thrown out of U.S. airspace, because I was in.

On Wednesday, July 20, 2011 at 22:35, I embarked on Aeromexico flight 033 to Mexico City to go to Barcelona. I had to connect from there to another Alitalia flight to Italy, where he met with friends to share their experiences of Latin American struggles. The flight was normal until just after midnight, when the captain told us we'd be back to Monterrey, Mexico, as the airspace of the United States was closed.

extreme To my surprise, when we landed a little after 1 am, a flight attendant asked for my ID and asked me to collect my things and accompany out of the plane. When I reached the door of some Mexican federal police and two or three employees Aeromexico asked me to identify more, and leave the plane. I told them I was not going to be explained what was happening. They said "the U.S. government refused the plane because you're at it."

I was amazed. A good person in Monterrey Aeromexico said they were also very surprised, and said they would see what could be done. I had no choice but to leave the aircraft. The federal police asked me to submit a copy of my passport. I think that young women were surprised that I Aeromexico. We waited at the airport for an hour and a half until they were finally able to send the plane on its way. After that, I was taken to a hotel. I was scared and very angry. I asked them to give me a place on the first flight back to Mexico, which has agreed to do so. I felt a shock, a profound vulnerability, and desperately wanted to return home in safety.

I think I am on a blacklist of the U.S., although I have never said. Presumably I am blacklisted because he was arrested in Bolivia in 1992 as a result of my political activism. I was tortured and imprisoned and accused - now with Bolivia, elected vice president, Alvaro Garcia - with membership in a guerrilla organization. The case was dropped due to lack of evidence, and all charges against me were officially retired in 2007.

Those of us who are in a U.S. government "black list" - for a variety of reasons often absurd - We are not asking that they let us in your country. It is absurd to maintain an aircraft in the air when we travel.
