It has been almost two months now that a magnitude 7.2 earthquake devastated Haiti, severely limiting an already damaged health care infrastructure.

Several international relief organizations responded, and among those who answered the call was Dr Robert Fuller, president of emergency medicine at UConn Health.

There would be 100 people waiting at the door hoping to be seen. – Dr Robert Fuller

Fuller is back after a three-week deployment with the International Medical Corps, which set up a medical clinic on a football field about 400 yards from an Aquin hospital. Aquin is a port town on the south coast of Haiti’s Tiburon Peninsula, not far from the epicenter.

“It’s known as a referral hospital for the region, a small hospital that could usually do surgeries, antenatal care, maternity care, caesarean sections, treatment for HIV, malnutrition, malaria – kind of ‘general hospital as well as a resource for those specialties needs, “Fuller says.” Because of the earthquake, one of its two main buildings could not be occupied.

When Fuller arrived in Aquin on September 9, IMC tents were already in place, not only on the football fields, but also in the hospital parking lot, intended for preoperative and postoperative care. The hospital operating rooms were functional, but the preoperative and postoperative areas were too damaged. Other habitable parts of the hospital such as conference rooms and non-clinical areas have been converted to inpatient rooms to begin to restore capacity.

Back at the soccer field, the tent clinic sometimes treated or sorted 170 people a day, Monday to Saturday. Fuller held the familiar role of the facility’s medical coordinator, which the previous week had been run by expatriate volunteers.

“On a typical day, I would meet the medical team around the same day, then around 8:15 am we would open the tents, open the vents and doors, turn on the generators, and there were 100 people waiting at the door. hoping to be seen, ”Fuller says. “A triage nurse was going through the crowd to determine who needed treatment first, who was sickest. I would work with a responsible nurse to set up staff for the tents, including translators, nurses, doctors and midwives to take care of the patients throughout the day.

Fuller would also arrange for the transfer of patients who needed more advanced care than what was available locally, a daunting task that has become a little less daunting over time.

“I had to find a place and figure out how to get them there – which was difficult, especially in the early days – and the last piece was to build a list of reliable resources, go through the countryside, find out who could do what,” says Fuller. “Gradually, the existing infrastructure began to recover with its capacity. Within two hours, I visited all the hospitals and health facilities to see what their capabilities were. Over the three weeks, little by little, the hospitals began to be able to do what they were doing, albeit in a slightly different way, the same line of service even if it was not the same structure.

At the same time, Fuller’s job was to recruit local nurses and doctors who could support the operation for the next few months, while avoiding poaching talent and creating staff shortages at other facilities. When he left on October 1, he had hired two doctors and six nurses. IMC still has a few supervisors in the field, with local providers providing most of the patient care.

“For more than 15 years, Dr. Fuller has been an integral part of International Medical Corps emergency response efforts in crisis areas around the world,” said Margaret Traub, Head of Global Initiatives at IMC. “We were fortunate to have Dr. Fuller returned to Haiti with us after the last earthquake, to help run our mobile field hospital near the epicenter. His prior knowledge of Haiti and its people has proven invaluable.

Fuller says the efforts have been well received by residents.

“The people of Aquin were very welcoming and very grateful,” Fuller says. “Even though we couldn’t provide them with what they needed, they really appreciated our presence. I was working with a translator, ending a conversation with a patient, and the translator was saying, “They want to thank you very much for being there, they appreciate it. Some had issues that we couldn’t help with, and even then they would always be grateful. “

Running water is a real privilege.

He describes the living conditions as “rough and tumbling,” with little relief from the heat, no air conditioning, no screens on the windows. He and many providers stayed at a local hostel, which had running water, although neither the water service nor the electricity was always reliable.

“The fans were going and it was pretty hot. Running water is a real privilege, ”Fuller says. “No one in this area has running water in their house. Everyone carries a big water bottle or yellow bucket, brings it to a hand pump to fill it up and take it home. Our water sometimes ran 12 hours a day which was a downside that puts you more in tune with the locals to experience their struggles. Still, it was a nice building, not damaged by the earthquake, and I felt quite comfortable going in and camping out on one of the balconies.

Fuller is no stranger to emergency care beyond the walls of the emergency department at UConn John Dempsey Hospital. On September 11, he was part of a UConn Health special operations unit dispatched to the World Trade Center site and participated in several IMC disaster responses, including the 2004 tsunami in Indonesia, another earthquake in Haiti in 2010, hurricane Thomas in St. Lucia in 2010, and the 2013 typhoon that hit the Philippines. This trip to Haiti was his first since the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This is the kind of thing I would normally respond to, and the COVID vaccine makes it possible to participate in these humanitarian missions again,” Fuller explains. “I find satisfaction in solving puzzles which are these complicated tasks. I feel like this is something I’m good at, and it’s gratifying to be able to help.

He says his experiences in such resource-constrained settings reveal marked differences in the way care is provided.

“I not only have to deal with the one problem that lies ahead, but think about the context and how that context influences all the medical decisions you have to make,” Fuller explains. “What if I move this patient to a new location, will the care be provided appropriately? Would the patient survive? Would they have access to food and water if they left their social network? Can we help the social network expand to reach their destination? Questions beyond the medical question. It’s interesting to think that there is so much movement on the ground, sometimes you come to the conclusion that the best place to get treatment is here at the tent hospital.

Show trumps survival in the deliciously weird ‘Eternal Cylinder’ https://playtsunami.com/show-trumps-survival-in-the-deliciously-weird-eternal-cylinder/ https://playtsunami.com/show-trumps-survival-in-the-deliciously-weird-eternal-cylinder/#respond Fri, 01 Oct 2021 13:00:00 +0000 https://playtsunami.com/show-trumps-survival-in-the-deliciously-weird-eternal-cylinder/ Image courtesy of the ACE team To understand the strength of The Eternal Cylinder, now available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, you must experience it with a controller in hand and a pair of headphones on your ears.

To understand the strength of The Eternal Cylinder, now available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, you must experience it with a controller in hand and a pair of headphones on your ears.

For the most part, this survival game, like the rest of Chilean developer ACE Team’s production, is a notable fantasy. You play as a Trebhum, a tiny creature in makeup with a head for a body, two stocky legs and a long trunk. You’re at the bottom of the food chain, but the cylinder that the game takes its title from is literally a great leveler. As high as a mountain and wide as the horizon, full speed and threatening, it shakes the earth, and you, like other creatures, must run. At various exciting times, I almost got caught underneath, trees banging around me as everything turned orange from its warm metallic glow. But I managed to escape, sighing in relief as he quietly stopped. I dusted myself off before starting to search for my next meal, wary that the cylinder shutdown was only temporary.

You would think that after nearly twenty hours, this show would start to age, that its power would decrease, but it is not. It remains one of the most striking images I’ve ever seen in a video game, cleverly reversing the awe-inspiring horizon that characterizes almost all open-world adventure. You see that mountain in the distance, well, what if it was behind you and it rolled around relentlessly like a nightmarish apparition – a slow motion tsunami. The closest comparison I can make is with Giant’s Deep in Outdoor savages, a planet whose ocean surface is one of the unstoppable swirling cyclones. I get the same kind of environmental fear from The Eternal Cylinder as I do with this inhospitable alien world.

The Cataclysmic Rolling Pin is just one part of the game’s warped ecology, inspired as much by the BBC’s nature documentaries and the Jim Henson movies as are the works of surrealist Salvador Dali. You control not a single Trebhum, but a group of them, hatching newborns from eggs at different times. Your brave family faces threats such as Omnogrom, a gigantic upturned mouth that will engulf you in an instant, and the Cleanser, a car with muscular arms whose poisonous yellow light robs you of the abilities you have accumulated so far.

This is the other major component of The Eternal Cylinder. In order to survive you must direct the Trebhums to the abundant flora and fauna in the game so that they can replenish their stamina, water and health. However, other edibles mutate your already particular body. The first thing you eat is a green egg dropped by an insect that looks like a grasshopper. After sipping it, the Trebhum convulses and suddenly, with a satisfying pop, longer legs spring from its body, a vital feature for exploring the game’s vertiginous topography. Other helpful snacks include a slug-like creature that allows you to turn food into water, a plant that gives you fur, and a gelatinous cube that, yes, turns your body into a cube. In The Eternal Cylinder, a game that takes the metaphor to its literal and often absurd end, you really are what you eat.

Abilities are either perks that simply make survival easier or tools needed to solve specific environmental puzzles. These often take place in Trebhum temples, towering pyramid-shaped structures that contain older Trebhums who provide guidance and advance the plot. The puzzles here work much like the shrines of Breath of the wild, instructing you to use a particular ability. Sometimes they are a joy, like when I led a group of creatures called Glickbol using my new flute shaped horn. At other times, they can be a head scratching frustration (a molten temple left me stumped for a full 30 minutes).

Overall, the potential of these evolutionary mutations is never quite realized. They’re important when the game deems them important, like passing a particular obstacle or completing an aforementioned puzzle, but when you’re just going through the game’s richly detailed environments, they can seem unimportant. What could have been a sandbox survival game that reveled in the combination of freewheeling mutations actually ends up feeling prescriptive, with its designers perhaps a little afraid to really let the training wheels go. fly away. This is compounded both by the game’s narrator, voiced by Peter Hayden, and by the cylinder itself, each of which moves the story forward in decidedly linear fashion. These push elements give the game considerable pizzazz, but also, at times, the lingering feeling that you are playing a rejuvenated endless runner. A little more leeway for experimentation would have gone a long way.

The most efficient section of the game flips this straight structure, actually allowing me to look behind the cylinder. I inflated like a balloon before boarding a plume of hot air. As I stood up, the landmass stretched out in heavenly pinks, the sky above sparkled with cosmic phenomena. I reoriented 180 degrees, saw the cylinder and walked towards it, landing with a plop. This is where the Trebhums and I shared our happiest moment, curling up into balls and rolling along its top edge in an act of cheerful defiance. But then I had to venture behind, and as I floated I saw the desolation the cylinder had caused – an expanse of dead, flattened brush. For a game that is at its best when offering great visual juxtapositions (special mention must be given to the high contrast lighting which skillfully accentuates the quirky characteristics of the Trebhums), this looked like the culmination of that approach. Life and death were separated by a giant metal tube – I could see both in all their glory and terror.

604e878d10f05bdebd479719_Screenshot-Ice-Biome.jpg

For all its magnificence, The Eternal Cylinder is also a game of tranquility. When I stopped to take a breath, I found real pleasure rotating the camera to face my motley crew of brightly colored Trebhums. One was inflated like a hot air balloon, another looked like a car engine, and a third looked like an aquatic dinosaur. There was an assembly of handsome weirdos there, each not apologizing in their own strangeness – another striking image.

It goes to the heart of what The Eternal Cylinder is about. On the one hand, a technological monolith is moving forward irresistibly: uniform, perfect, singular. On the other, these cute little Trebhums which embody diversity and uniqueness, our ultimate heroes. It’s a simple, big-hearted message that, alongside the storybook narrator, makes the game feel like a fable. For this period of gigantic crises in which we find ourselves, nothing more than that concerning the environment, it is an appropriate allegory, a reminder of the power that resides in the collective, and that our differences are an asset, not an obstacle. .

Ian said: Some very difficult questions need to be asked. Can Debt Be Negotiated? Can additional funding be raised? Are there surplus assets to transform cash ?

Speed ​​is essential. The cash flow crisis is here and it is now.

Another threat lurks, he adds. Uuncontrolled grow in the recovery after a downturn pushes more companies on the cedge of liff than any other cause.

So businessit is necessary be willful and resist the temptation to grow too quickly, unless they have the means to fund all the projectsra activity.

Jimmy Fish, insolvency expert at Cowgills, emphasizes the importance business managers familiar with “faulty trading” and its implications.

He says: “This is a subject on which I have been asked more and more to advise recently, with co-directors.concerned about insolvent business and the risks they face in making so.”

He explains: “Directors may become personally liable to contribute to the assets of a company if the company was allowed to continue in business at a time when a director knew or should. knew that there was no reasonable prospect that the company avoid insolvent liquidation.

And he adds: “It is also important to note how customers are doing after the pandemic and to remain vigilant, to ensure that credit is offered on services and products.cts is not allowed to spiral and that accounts are routinely chasedy for payments in order to maintain cash flow control and manage your own creditors.

Video As fall arrives in the northern hemisphere, scientists have shown how tiny, connected semiconductors can be distributed in the wind much like the seasonal spread of airborne seeds.

Researchers led by Professor John Rogers of Northwestern University in the United States have designed circuit boards capable of exhibiting spinning behaviors, as seen in helicopter and spinning seeds, which improve stability and behavior flight.

In an article published in Nature this week, they argue that simple electronics can be built into designs, with an example containing a circuit to detect airborne particles.

In simulations and wind tunnel experiments, researchers examined how aerodynamics are affected by changing design parameters such as the diameter, structure, and wing type of flyers ranging from micro-scale, smaller to 1 mm, at the macro-scale, greater than 1 mm.

Youtube video

The researchers say they have demonstrated a range of seed-like 3D spinning devices that can house active electronic components and sensors that can be used for environmental monitoring.

Talk to The registerRogers said the greatest application opportunities would likely be the detection of air pollution, groundwater contamination and agricultural agents, for example. Tracking pathogens and the spread of disease – where large-scale distributed networks of miniature sensors would be useful – might also be possible.

“We are working to incorporate more sophisticated sensors, with a focus on biological pathogens, particulate pollution and heavy metal contamination of groundwater,” he said. “The main pitfall is the passive nature of the dispersion pattern – the corresponding advantage is cost and simplicity compared to systems which might incorporate flapping wings for example.”

Microfly

A collection of 3D microfliers

Many might think that freely distributing more microelectronics in a world already polluted by plastics might be a bad idea. But Rogers said the team has already produced environmentally degradable versions of the devices “as a way to solve this very important problem.”

Flyers can cost anywhere from 1 to 20 cents, depending on payload, he said.

In an accompanying article, Elizabeth Farrell Helbling, assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University, said: “These devices could form dynamic sensor networks for environmental monitoring, nodes of wireless communication or various other technologies based on the network of devices called the Internet of Things. “

While there is still work to be done to understand how flyers would behave in the wind and to explore alternatives based on parachute and glider type flyers, she said: “As a roboticist specializing in systems development Autonomous at the scale of insects, excited by the questions posed by the authors’ micro-scale robotic technology. ” ®

The strides lengthen, the opponents fade and the finish line is in sight. New Jersey online sports bettors turn more bullish than Phillies slugger Bryce harper, who has been in sprint mode since the All-Star break, will cross the finish line first in the National League MVP vote.

Harper, rightly, has become chalk with a capital C.

The most recent odds on DraftKings Sportsbook, -145, and BetMGM, -200, suggest that all bets are now open.

That’s Harper’s price to lose, and he responded with a tell-tale arsenal of great games. Harper literally pushed the Phillies to stay on the sidelines of the National East League and wild card races.

This is what MVPs do.

MVP Bryce Harper Odds Tracking

This represents a great collection for New Jersey punters, who have joined the Harper movement at various entry points.

Some jumped on Harper when he was in the +1500 neighborhood around the All-Star break. Others came in later and many pressed the Harper button inside +500.

They all sound prophetic.

Harper blew up his closest rival Fernando Tatis Jr. of San Diego Padres last weekend to take first place. Tatis is fighting. He fights with his teammate Manny Machado, the Padres are forgotten. Most importantly, Tatis doesn’t look like a much needed leader.

Harper does.

He can, in fact, play the best baseball of his life.

“Although it’s up to the guys who vote for the award, I think it comes down to who has done the most for their team. ” Johnny Avello, the director of racing and sports betting operations for DraftKings, said PlayNJ.com. “Maybe a team weren’t that great, but because of one guy, they play a little better than a 0.500 ball and compete for a playoff spot. A guy like that should be in the mix.

“It’s not always about the team that won it,” he added. “Look at a team and think about what it would be like without this guy. “

For the Phillies, it’s easy. They reportedly made golf plans on September 1.

Harper has an array of clutch, base stroke and fieldwork strikes to keep the Phillies afloat. His bat produces races, his wheels make them, and his arm prevents a few.

Listen to the songs of the MVP at Citizens Bank Park

The “MVP” chants at Citizens Bank Park follow each of his great moments.

Like Wednesday.

Harper reduced the run tied to the plate with a volley ball throw from right field. The saved run led to the Phillies’ 4-3 triumph over the Baltimore Orioles.

Like Tuesday.

The Phillies were suspended, possibly in a playoff elimination, in the 10th inning against the Orioles.

As they trailed 2-1, it didn’t matter that Harper had recently moved up to 13 for 25, with 10 goals on the line to provide a base percentage of 66%. Or that his OPS for the season, on base and hit percentage, is the best in baseball.

It also didn’t seem to matter that he had 33 home runs, 80 RBIs and a .314 batting average.

Nope. What matters is that the Orioles made Harper walk the winning race on purpose. That left the Phillies with runners in the first and third with two strikeouts, on one run.

With a strike left to the Phillies, JT Realmuto hoisted an opposite field workout that will be caught up half the time. Fortunately for the Phillies, it wasn’t.

Harper fled with the banging of the bat. The ball was well lined up in right field and the throw was true. But a beating Harper beat him for a split second, sliding and touching the far corner of the plate with his hand.

Game over. The Phillies win.

This is what MVPs do.

The two triumphs that Harper helped preserve in two nights, without his lightning bat, reveal the unreal zone he finds himself in.

Just as it was in 2015, becoming the youngest MVP in the league at 23.

Bryce Harper’s Short History with the Phills

When the Phillies signed him to a $ 330 million contract over 13 years three years ago, he was the richest in North American sports history (and later eclipsed by Mike de Millville Trout of Los Angeles Angels). The Phillies knew they were getting a baseball player.

They didn’t surround him with pennant-winning talent.

So this year he’s wearing them.

Bettors remember the 42 homers and 338 total goals in 2015. It should be the second time he has wiped out 300 total goals, despite missing time with back spasms and a blow to the face with a pitch.

More than anything, fans and bettors alike see the lust, as Harper blames the offense.

His run around the bases against the Orioles revealed his thirst to help the team. And that’s a metaphor for how he played for several months, sprinting.

DraftKings watches over Bryce Harper

Asked about the. The NL MVP line’s rapid move over the past two weeks, Avello said, “Harper is a guy we’ve watched throughout the year.”

“Sometimes the money comes in and we move the line, but sometimes we move the line without the money. You see the odds change often because it’s the type of category that we have to watch every day and make adjustments accordingly, ”said Avello.

“There is no reason to give a player +400 odds (and get pounded by big players making big bets) when he really belongs at +200.

“It’s a two-man race now,” he added. “There really isn’t enough time for other players to have a big run.”

New Jersey bettors are right in the middle of this complicated puzzle in the two leagues, which have different histories.

Harper is not a dangerous pick for books. Heavy money in the New York market accompanied at Jacob de Grom dream launch season for the New York food until he was injured near the All-Star break. So was Ronald Acuna Jr. of the Atlanta Braves, who also made a lot of money, with Tatis Jr.

Two of the book’s biggest liabilities won’t fit.

The American League is a slightly different story

Garden State players went nuts two years ago when Trout won his third MVP and the first in the age of legalized sports betting. They loaded up again in March, making him the pre-season favorite. But the trout were lost for the June season, paving the way for the Ohtani Tsunami.

Shohei Ohtani had already taken a silver wave of +6000 to +1500 before the start of the season. May’s injury to Trout led to Ohtani becoming a runaway winner.

Ohtani will be a money loser for the pounds, but at least the trout bets help make up for it.

New Jersey punters can nostalgically imagine what could have been: Harper for the Phillies and Millville Mike as an MVP.

For now, they’ll be happy to take Harper.

The GNOME Foundation released GNOME 41 – six months after GNOME 40, which was the first to be based on the GTK4 toolkit.

Although GNOME 41 has been released, it will be some time before different distributions support it and even longer before it becomes a default desktop environment.

We used a pre-release of Fedora 35 (full version expected next month) and updated it to the latest GNOME 41 available.

The main changes start with an improved power plan, with access from the system status menu and the ability for applications (such as games) to request a particular power plan for optimal performance.

The app discovery and installation utility, imaginatively called Software, has been redesigned with more categories, revamped information tiles, and larger screenshots. The team also claimed that “there have been many fixes and improvements under the hood, which make the experience faster and more reliable.”

Launching the Software in GNOME 41

Launching the software in GNOME 41 – type to search works fine

A new multitasking settings panel offers more precise control over the behavior of workspaces (desks). Users can manage settings for the number of workspaces, whether switching apps with Super + Tab switches between all apps or only those in the current workspace, and whether the workspaces span across multiple screens. The Super key is the Windows key on PC keyboards.

The connections look promising but haven't worked for us

The connections look promising but haven’t worked for us

GNOME 41 comes with a new remote desktop application called Connections, which supports both Windows RDP and VNC protocol for connecting to Linux and macOS. Connections seem like a great idea, but unfortunately it refused to connect to our Mac via VNC and then crashed on opening – despite being a pre-release of Fedora 35.

Under the covers, GNOME 41 is said to have efficiency improvements when using the Wayland display server, and we are promised more reliable multitouch gestures. There is a new default for the OpenGL renderer called NGL and “a major code cleanup” in the Mutter window manager.

Other improvements include the ability to create encrypted .ZIP archives in the Files manager, .ics import into calendar (important for automatically adding calendar entries), and performance improvements in the browser GNOME Web.

Developers get a new documentation site, new human interface guidelines, updates to the IDE Builder, including the ability to create and run CMake projects (although the Meson build system is recommended) and better support for Flatpak. There are also a bunch of improvements and cleanups for the libadwaita library, used for GTK 4 development, and improved Rust support.

Rust developers benefit from a new but incomplete book on GUI development with Rust and GTK 4.

Judging by our quick practice with Fedora 35, GNOME 41 is smoother and more comprehensive than before. In the activity manager, the search works well to find an application or a setting and has some intelligence: for example, a search for “paint” finds GIMP, Blender and Pinta.

GNOME Tweaks Offers A Way To Restore, Minimize, And Maximize Icons In Windows

GNOME Tweaks (which is supposed to be overridden by settings) provides a way to restore, minimize, and maximize icons in Windows

There are still some puzzles. One of these is why the GNOME team is opposed to the idea of ​​minimizing and making the icons on the title bars of windows smaller and larger. We couldn’t find a setting for this in the Update Config utility, but luckily the old GNOME Tweaks does offer it, and it worked, much to our relief.

It’s free and open source, so for issues like the ones we’ve encountered with Connections, it’s easy to bring up an issue in the GitLab repository or, for those with the right skills, to dive into the code. ®

And the trees do not forget. In the 1990s, researchers identified a “ghost forest” of dead cedars near the Washington coast; dating of tree rings confirmed that they were indeed dead in 1700. But Black and Dziak searched for trees that suffered the tsunami – and Survived. The rings of these trees could contain evidence of the stress caused by a huge flood.

Finding them was not easy. “It takes a bit of a detective to find old growth forests close enough to shore,” says Dziak, “and there are good reasons. The large trees accessible near the coastline were like gold to the loggers who colonized the area in the centuries following the earthquake. The fires have killed others. Still, the team found trees that seemed to fit: ancient Douglas firs gathering in a stand in Mike Miller State Park, nearly a mile from the shore in South Beach, Oregon.

If you had stood next to the young fir trees in 1700, you would probably have felt the ground rumbling. A few minutes later, the water would have arrived. It would not have been a biblical water wall, but rather “like a rapid influx of high tide,” Dziak explains. (Here is a video of the 2011 tsunami in Japan for reference.) His model suggests speeds of between two and 10 meters per second in this park, and depths of up to 10 meters. Nearby sand dunes tell Dziak that the tsunami would likely have dried up quickly; a nearby pond tells him that the water may have brined the roots longer. In both cases, this rush of seawater would be enough to cause damage to trees unaccustomed to such salt.

To find evidence that the trees had withstood damage from the tsunami, Black extracted cylindrical cores from trees at the site, ultimately identifying seven that were old enough to have existed during the quake. He sanded down the cores, each about as wide as a pencil, revealing the concentric patterns left by the annual growth. An exceptionally productive year appears as a large space between the rings of trees; a bad year seems close. Black juxtaposed each kernel with the rest to ensure that each tree’s calendar year matched that of its neighbors who, for the past three centuries, had experienced the same climate. “It’s kind of like working on a puzzle,” says Black. And that revealed a clear trend: Trees in the flood zone predicted by the model all had poor growth in 1700.

Now he and Dziak are eager to test the chemical differences in each tree ring, which could irrefutably blame the slowdown on seawater. Will Struble, a University of Arizona geomorphologist who did not participated in the work, agrees with the caution of the team. (Struble and Black worked together, but he was not involved in this study.) It will be important to have chemical evidence to prove the theory that salt water – not earthquakes or climate change – hampered Mike Miller’s stand in 1700.

Still, Struble emphasizes how valuable such evidence is in supporting tsunami flood simulations, because field data from 1700 is so hard to come by. “To actually be able to go out into the field and use a data set like tree rings to ground the truth, these models are really where I think the novelty is,” Struble explains.

Pockets of other ancient trees along the Oregon and Washington streams have also reportedly been inundated. If the chemical analysis is successful, this tool could map the extent of the 1700 tsunami far beyond Mike Miller’s stand.

Determining which of the trees survived water stress might also be helpful, suggests Pearl: “Are older trees more likely to perish? Younger trees have shallower roots and therefore rely more on precipitation than groundwater. They can also rebound faster, or even thrive later if the taller canopy blocking the sun dies. “And not only future tsunamis, but sea level rise as well – which species might be most resistant to salt water? ” she asks.

Climate scientist warns cyclones could soon become the norm in Europe https://playtsunami.com/climate-scientist-warns-cyclones-could-soon-become-the-norm-in-europe/ https://playtsunami.com/climate-scientist-warns-cyclones-could-soon-become-the-norm-in-europe/#respond Tue, 21 Sep 2021 13:46:15 +0000 https://playtsunami.com/climate-scientist-warns-cyclones-could-soon-become-the-norm-in-europe/ NASA Image of Unsplash It is clear that the days of relatively rare extreme weather events in Europe are over.

It is clear that the days of relatively rare extreme weather events in Europe are over. Globally, the climate crisis is at the forefront of all of our minds: from Forest fires in Greece and Turkey for landslides in Japan and flash floods in big cities like New York and London. As anxiety grew, many took to the streets to start demanding that world leaders make drastic changes to save our planet. Nadia bloemendaal—A meteorologist at the Institute for Environmental Studies, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam-on the other hand, prefers to do her activism behind a computer screen, where she thinks that using her skills can really make a difference.

The importance of mapping extreme weather events and early warning systems

Bloemendaal’s job is to model extreme weather conditions, revealing trends in the region that could have a significant impact on life in Europe over the next half century. It combines meteorology, mathematics and physics to produce real representations of the evolution of weather around the world. His work, along with that of countless other meteorologists, produces scientific evidence which, in turn, shapes the course of climate policy around the world.

Bloemendaal originally developed its cyclone early warning system to protect communities in southern countries. Recently, however, more grim forecasts have been made for areas further north. Alarm bells are ringing closer to home. Recent cases of extreme weather conditions, such as deadly flash floods across the continent, should not be considered a rare incident. In fact, it could foreshadow a more dangerous, extreme and unpredictable future European climate.

The floods that hit northern Europe in July 2021 were a tragic disaster, killing at least 180 people. However, if there is a bright side to the incident, it is that the storm protection systems were successful in avoid other victims for people living in the Netherlands. This showed us that warning systems for extreme weather conditions are not only recommended in Europe, they are necessary. The day when Europe is largely safe from extreme weather is behind us, political leaders must step up and implement “early warning systems and adequate communication that can save lives,” said Bloemendaal . Euronews.

Bloemendaal says a warmer climate could serve as fuel for tropical cyclones, especially if the seawater reaches a temperature of 30 degrees Celsius (86 Fahrenheit). In her interview, she continues to warn that seawater temperature at this level can cause the “continuation and intensification of tropical cyclones”.

Cyclones could be the norm in Europe

And the forecasts are grim. As the sea level rises around the world, it will have a ripple impact by increasing the temperature of the water. This is particularly the case in the South, where rising waters could cause the northern coastal regions to reach temperatures of up to 27 degrees Celsius. Based on the science Bloemendaal sees, parts of the world that don’t see tropical cyclones right now could see them in the next 30 to 50 years.

A recent report from 2021 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reaffirms its fears. In the statement, it was confirmed that even at the targeted levels of 1.5 degrees Celsius of global warming, heavy rains and flooding are likely to increase in Europe, as well as Africa, Asia and North America. . Worse yet, it rests on the assumption that the major world powers will stay on their goal of reducing carbon emissions and fighting global warming – a hope that is showing signs of decrease. The report also indicated that observational data across North America, Europe and Asia show that “human influence” is the key factor in driving extreme weather conditions… No surprises then.

The work climatologists like Bloemendaal do to educate us on what our planet has in store for us over the next 50 years should not go unnoticed. Its data indicates that Europe could see tropical cyclones – which can destroy communities, cost millions in damage and ultimately kill innocent people – in our lifetime. However, despite the bad news, Bloemendaal’s work could also indirectly save lives; enable countries to prepare for the worst and put in place effective early warning systems. Not all heroes wear capes.

It’s the end of the world as we know it.

And we don’t feel good, people!

Our favorite first responders were back in Episode 1 of Season 5 of 9-1-1 and to say it was a wacky, wild and crazy hour would be the understatement of the century. Where do you start after a payment like this?

This show, you guys.

9-1-1 has a trick. And this thing goes above and beyond for their first episodes every season.

The tsunami first comes to mind because it was just the next level with the special effects and the whole idea of ​​Los Angeles underwater. But seeing the city spiraling into madness, as technology literally crumbled before our eyes, was perhaps the most fascinating “disaster” to date.

Starting things off with a flashforward was perfect, and it set the stage for now.

We knew we were going to get to a point where the streets were emptying and everything was a mess, but we didn’t know how we were going to get there. And you could slowly break things down as the minutes went by.

An abundance of emergencies - 9-1-1

A ransomware attack is a terrifying thing. Think about the world we live in and how intrinsically linked we are to just about everything. Phones, computers, cars, etc. We all use them on a daily basis, whether for fun, work or whatever.

Hacking a computer system can have a catastrophic ripple effect.

And that’s what we see play out here.

Much of last season was about the aftermath of Athena’s attack and her struggles with the job and trauma of that event. Here she was plunged back into that trauma when the Hudson trial began.

Athena Grant is one of the strongest characters on television. And its resilience is unmatched.

Asking him to essentially confront the man who almost took his life takes incredible strength. Not to mention being there for the other Hudson victims and doing your best to be strong for them too.

It’s such a fascinating story, but the whole time I was watching I waited for the other shoe to drop because you knew it was coming. It was only a matter of time before it all got out of hand, and of course, it’s happening there when they’re all in the courtroom together.

As soon as the courtroom was invaded, you knew Hudson was going to escape. But to be honest, I didn’t feel like he was going to be found right away.

So, it was a little surprising when Athena was able to piece everything together so quickly and figure out what Hudson was up to.

Hudson is a bully and a coward. He gets away with having the upper hand and asserting any domination he thinks he has over women. That’s why he fired his lawyer in the middle of the courtroom. And why he wanted to be his own lawyer in the first place.

Buck and Eddie Respond - 9-1-1 Season 5 Episode 1

He goes to Lila’s to assert his “power” once again, but Athena defeats him again, and Ransome gets there before he can take off into the wind with his kidnapped victim.

If you thought of a fantastic way to end this story then, join the club. But that momentary sigh of relief makes what happens next all the more devastating.

Look, Ransome is a recurring character, but he’s been through A LOT with Athena. And he has become someone the public can trust. So, yes, his death is both shocking and incredibly sad.

Lile becoming a disillusioned mess plagued by the charms of a sociopath was not something I saw coming at all. And it’s a testament to how the story unfolded that it was such a shocking moment.

And just like that, we’re back to where we started with Ransome on the loose. And now Athena will have to piece together another puzzle in the dark.

The 118s were bouncing all over the place to perform rescues, and damn it, it was nice to see them again to make jokes and help people.

There hasn’t been a single BIG rescue here, but you know there will be plenty on the horizon. Instead, the focus here was more on the little things and the characters, especially Eddie, who had a little medical setback himself.

There’s always so much going on in the show, with lives on the line every week, that you can forget all of the traumatic events that each of the main characters went through.

For Eddie, he’s only a few months away from the sniper shootout. And while he is back at work and apparently well physically, he suffers from a panic attack which surprises him.

It makes sense that Eddie is anxious, even though he’s not ready to admit it. There can sometimes be a distorted perception of anxiety, like you have to be in a disturbing context or under duress to be anxious, and that just isn’t true.

118 is ready - 9-1-1 Season 5 Episode 1

You may be sitting outside on a beautiful day enjoying nature and suddenly be struck by that overwhelming feeling of darkness and pain that can almost mimic a heart attack.

This is what happens with Eddie when he is just minding his own business trying on costumes and collapses on the floor.

It’s unclear where this story goes, but what if it gives us more of Eddie and a little more information about his mental state after a domestic terrorist attack? It sounds very intriguing.

And buckle up in best buddy Buck worrying about Eddie? Yes please. Some of the best moments on this show will always be with Buck and Eddie, and it will be so great to see them again.

It’s great to see everyone again! We missed you, 9-1-1!

Looking Up - 9-1-1 Season 5 Episode 1

Tips

  • Ana and Taylor back is interesting. Will these couples last the season? Time will tell us.
  • The best rescue was the lady who drove into the canal because it didn’t look right at all.
  • I can’t wait for the wild animals to roam free and scavenge in Sephora and Forever 21. CAN. NOT. WAIT.
  • Maddie seems to be struggling, and with all the chaos swirling around the city, it will be a tough time for her.
Navigating the Streets - 9-1-1 Season 5 Episode 1

It was a fabulous first, and it looks like this ransomware story will last a few episodes, which will be a really good time!
