Red light camera video captures worst of 2016

first_imgHere is another compilation.  This time it is the worst red-light runners in America in 2016. The video was compiled using ATS red light cameras in operation in communities throughout the country, Dale Fenwick Not a single one of these were for people turning on red after stopping. Many tickets are issued because cars turned after stopping for 2 seconds instead of 3. Red light cameras do not prevent the idiotic disregard compiled here.

When drivers ignore a red light, they put themselves and innocent pedestrians, motorcyclists, bicyclists, other drivers and passengers at great risk. ATS urges all drivers to choose safety over recklessness and stop on red.”According to a study performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, red light cameras have had a measurable impact on traffic safety. The study determined that red-light cameras in 79 large U.S. cities saved nearly 1,296 lives. The study also found the rate of red-light running fatalities rose 30 percent in cities that had turned off their cameras while red-light running fatalities decreased 21 percent in cities that turned on red-light safety cameras.The 90 second video shows 14 red-light running incidents.  Three are near-misses involving pedestrians. The third incident shows what happens when a car enters the intersection a fraction of a second after the light turns red. Look again. You missed the one with the pedestrian in the crosswalk with a shopping cart. The red-light runner just misses him as he makes a high-speed right-hand turn against the red light.

Journalist held in prison for several hours

first_img January 9, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist held in prison for several hours Hunger strike is last resort for some imprisoned Moroccan journalists According to information collected by RSF, on Monday January 7, Anas Mezzour, journalist for the Arabic weekly newspaper Al Ayyam based in Casablanca, went to visit Islamists detained at the central prison of Kenitra. Mezzour was accompanied by a lawyer and a member of a local humanitarian non-governmental organization that deals with Islamist prisoners. He entered the prison at around 10 a.m. At approximately 5 p.m, as they were getting ready to leave the prison building, the three men were stopped by a group of individuals who had just entered the building. They were not in uniform, and were therefore not prison guards. Anas Mezzour was held facing a wall while the guards informed the prison governor. He was separated from his two companions and taken to the governor’s office. There, a man identified by the journalist as a secret services agent, accompanied by three other agents, seized his recording device and forcibly detained him. Mezzour was held in the governor’s office for three hours by the agents, who accused him of having illegally entered the building. He was released only after the prison governor’s decision to call on the public prosecutor in Kenitra. “I did it to protect you”, he subsequently confided. “I did not want anything to happen to you under my jurisdiction”, the public servant concluded. to go further RSF_en Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa News News April 28, 2021 Find out more In a letter addressed to the Justice Minister, Omar Azziman, Reporters sans frontières (Reporters Without Borders – RSF) protested against the detention by secret service agents of Anas Mezzour, journalist for the Arabic weekly Al Ayyam. “How is it that agents from the Direction de la surveillance du territoire (DST) can freely detain a journalist in prison? We require an explanation”, stated Robert Ménard, Secretary General of the organization, worried at the growing influence of the DST in Morocco. “This detention is all the more irregular as members of the DST are not authorized to arrest Moroccan citizens”, he added.

Cambridge University Vatnajökull Expedition, 1977

first_imgThis expedition to Iceland was concerned with ice depth soundings of the largest ice cap in Europe and involved both the development of impulse radar systems and the use of satellite survey equipment for locating experimental stations and ice depth traverses (Fig 1). Vatnajökull, which translated means ‘water-ice’, is a temperate ice sheet and measures approximately 140 km east to west and 100 km north to south, thereby occupying more space than all other glaciers in Europe combined. Ice depth studies had previously been limited to seismic experiments conducted during the French-Icelandic expedition of 1951 when some 33 individual soundings were recorded. A few gravitational studies have also been made. It was not until 1976, however, that a first glacier base profile was obtained by a joint Cambridge-Icelandic expedition using electronic equipment developed at the University of Cambridge (see Polar Record, Vol 18, No 115, p 375–77). From that expedition some understanding of the electrical properties of ice was deduced and it became possible to design equipment that, theoretically, could measure the deepest parts of the ice cap. It was agreed in Reykjavik, in July 1976, to carry out a joint expedition in 1977 using a Mark II British instrument to survey Vatnajökull, at least in part, time and weather permitting. Owing to unforseen difficulties it was only possible for Cambridge University members to carry out this work.last_img read more

Crustal architecture of the Wilkes Subglacial Basin in East Antarctica, as revealed from airborne gravity data

first_imgThe Wilkes Subglacial Basin, in the hinterland of the Transantarctic Mountains, represents one of the least understood continental-scale features in Antarctica. Aeromagnetic data suggests that this basin may be imposed on a Ross age back arc region adjacent to the East Antarctic Craton. However, the evolution of the deeper crustal structure is disputed. Here, we present new airborne gravity data that reveals the crustal architecture of the northern Wilkes Subglacial Basin. Our gravity models indicate that the crust under the northern Wilkes Subglacial Basin is 30–35 km thick, i.e. ca 5–10 km thinner than imaged under the Transantarctic Mountains, and ~ 15 km thinner than predicted from some flexural and seismic models in the southern Wilkes Basin. We suggest that crustal thickening under northern Victoria Land reflects Ross-age (ca 500 Ma) orogenic events. Airy isostatic anomalies along both flanks of the Wilkes Basin reveal major inherited tectonic structures, which likely controlled the basin location, supporting aeromagnetic interpretations of the Wilkes Subglacial Basin as a structurally controlled basin. The positive anomaly along the western margin of the basin defines the boundary between the East Antarctic Craton and the Ross Orogen, and the anomaly along its eastern flank likely reflects high-grade rocks of the central Wilson Terrane. Our models indicate that the crust is ~ 5 km thinner beneath the northern Wilkes Basin, compared to formerly contiguous segments of the Delamerian Orogen in south-eastern Australia. The thinner crust may be linked to: i) back-arc basin formation or orogenic collapse processes and segmentation within the RossDelamerian Orogen, ii) Jurassic to Cretaceous extension prior to break-up between Australia and East Antarctica, iii) Cenozoic glacial erosion or most likely, iv) a combination of these processes.last_img read more

First record of Trichoceridae (Diptera) in the maritime Antarctic

first_imgDuring the austral summer of 2006–07, abundant Diptera were found in the sewage system of the Base Científica Antártica Artigas on King George Island. These are here identified as Trichocera (Saltrichocera) maculipennis (Diptera: Trichoceridae), a Holarctic species widely distributed in the Northern Hemisphere which has been introduced to some sub-Antarctic islands, but never been recorded in the maritime Antarctic. The distribution of the fly on King George Island indicates that it has been introduced by human agency. Although its origin is unclear, adult specimens have distinctive morphological features rarely represented in autochthonous populations in Europe. To date, larvae have been found only in the Artigas Base sewage system, but adults have been observed around the buildings and more widely in the vicinity. Given the species’ natural northern range, habitats and feeding preferences, it is likely to have good preadaptation permitting survival in the natural terrestrial ecosystems of the maritime Antarctic. We recommend that urgent eradication efforts are madelast_img read more

Charlatan by name, gentleman by nature

first_imgTony Rogers is cheerful – and well he might be. The Charlatans are about to release their eighth album, Up at the Lake, which marks fifteen years of Brit-rock ascendancy. The band’s longevity is phenomenal, given the fickle nature of the music industry and of the listening public, but their new album proves that they find no difficulty in creating music that sounds fresh and original, even after fifteen years. “We don’t do history”, remarks Rogers, and you can see what he means. Each Charlatans album retains its own identity, thanks to the fact that the music they write reflects exactly their circumstances at the time of production. For example, “There are a couple of sad songs on this album, which I wrote because I had just lost someone close to me. In general, though, I think that the album sounds very English, because it was recorded here and that’s influenced it.” So what exactly makes the album sound ‘English’? Rogers thinks that it’s the mellow truthfulness of the words, the way that it talks about love and loss and life without flinching. “It’s pretty realistic about things like that,” he says. “Basically, the album does exactly what is says on the tin.” Their previous album, Live it Like You Love it, bears little relation to the relaxed and melodic stylings of Up at the Lake. Rogers points out that “it’s got a sunny, upbeat kind of sound, which is probably because we recorded it in California. It definitely sounds Californian, and I think that tradition influenced us – you know, The Beach Boys and that kind of thing.” Fair enough then – it’s clear that The Charlatans’ sound is defined by what they experience. But who, exactly, are The Charlatans? Rogers describes the band as “just four other blokes who are on exactly the same wave-length as me.” And what wave-length might that be? “We don’t want to change the world. We just want to make better records,” he enthuses. “We just want to rock and roll, and anyone who wants to join us – well, please do!” He needn’t ask; it seems that plenty of people have already joined in the fun. Interestingly, a large proportion of the band’s fanbase seems to be fairly young – that is to say, it consists of people who were tripping up in the primary school playground when the band were just starting to make it big. “The people who started out with us in ‘89 have gone off to get married and have kids. They’re still with us, but they don’t really come to gigs anymore, so it’s nice to have a younger generation of fans as well.” It’s not hard to see why – for a band that’s been around so long that, in musical years, they should be resting on Fender zimmerframes when performing live gigs, the ability to produce a record as contemporary as Up at the Lake is no mean feat, and one that’s calculated to raise the interest of even the most jaded teen suffering from Pop Idol ennui. Some might say, about bloody time too – Up at the Lake comes nearly two years after their previous release. In the music industry, such a break would have shot a lesser band into the apocalyptic oblivion of daytime TV interviews and the bargain shelf in HMV. But not so The Charlatans. “We just had to recharge our batteries, to find a new direction,” Rogers explains, “but it was worth it – I love the new album, I actually think that it’s the best one we’ve ever done.” During the hiatus, the band embarked on various solo production projects, but mostly they just rested from the gruelling schedule of gigging and recording that had been their lot for the last decade. The Charlatans are lucky, in comparison to most bands, in that they have the luxury of taking a break when they like – having assumed control of much of their own recording and production, the whims of ‘evil corporate giant’ record companies don’t play much part in the band’s life. “Get a day job!” is the advice that Rogers would give to anyone thinking of following in the band’s footsteps. “Record companies aren’t interested in you or in your music, they’re only interested in the money it makes them. They’re all looking for the new Bright Young Things. It sounds clichéd, but you have to do what you want, not what they want.” Perhaps that’s all to easy for a member of one of Britain’s top indie bands to say, but Tony Rogers says it like he means it. His devotion to creating quality music is obvious, and is representative of the rest of the band. “We don’t have a message to get across; we’re not political. To be honest, all we want to do is have fun and to make lots and lots of great music – that’s what The Charlatans are about.” He gives the impression that The Charlatans exist as a musical entity, rather than a collection of individual musicians. “It’s more important to carry on the name of the band – the name itself implies that. In fact, there are only two founding members from ’89 still in the band – I didn’t join until 1997. What we’d all love is for The Charlatans to be playing in 50 or 100 years time, without us of course, but still a group of musicians keeping the flag flying, so to speak.” So what is the best thing about being a member of this open musical collective, as it seems to be? “Waking up in the morning and knowing that I can do whatever the hell I want,” he chuckles. And the worst? He pauses – there can’t be much wrong with being a member of The Charlatans. Finally, “Probably the fact that I’m still single!” he says, bursting into laughter so infectious I can’t help but join in. A charlatan by name, maybe, but a gentleman by nature.ARCHIVE: 1st week TT 2004last_img read more
