Maui voters to decide whether to ban GMO crops

first_imgHONOLULU — Dozens of Maui mothers are going door-to-door to urge voters to back a ban on the cultivation of genetically engineered crops because they think they are unsafe.A group backed by companies growing the crops counters with ads playing heavily on the airwaves that urge rejection of what they call the “farming ban.”The dueling campaigns over a Nov. 4 ballot measure that would prohibit the growing of genetically modified organisms until studies show they’re safe isn’t just a local issue in a county of only 160,000 residents in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.Experts say the ban’s effects could ripple across the nation because some of the world’s largest corn-seed producers research and develop new varieties of genetically engineered seeds at their farms in the county. Kendall Lamkey, chairman of the agronomy department at Iowa State University, said the initiative — if passed — could potentially make seed development more expensive for Monsanto Co. and a Dow Chemical Co. subsidiary, Dow AgroSciences.last_img read more

Can Free Pregnancy Tests In Bars Prevent Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

first_imgBars in Alaska are now offering pregnancy tests. The pilot program is meant to reduce the number of babies born with fetal alcohol syndrome in the state. Alaska has one of the highest rates in the country. Supporters hope the tests will reach women early in pregnancy – a crucial time when they might not know they’re expecting.Download Audio:Inside the ladies room at the Peanut Farm bar in Anchorage, a dispenser advertising free pregnancy tests hangs on the wall.Press the button to get one of the self-administered urine tests, and on this day they’re all out.The front of the machine features a poster showing a silhouette of a pregnant woman drinking from a bottle. The text at the top says: “Remember the last time you had sex?”Aimee Rathbone says she didn’t notice the dispenser at first.“So, I don’t know if it would catch my eye to make me take a test before I drank,” she says.Rathbone wonders, who’s the target audience? She believes most women will quit drinking when they find out they’re pregnant.“I think anybody that might suspect it wouldn’t drink except if they were addicted. You know, if they had a drinking problem then maybe it wouldn’t really change things.”State health officials estimate more than 120 children born in Alaska each year have fetal alcohol symptoms, ranging from mental and physical disabilities to impaired growth to organ damage. Alaska also has a high rate of women who binge drink, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.The University of Alaska is conducting the two-year study. Researcher David Driscoll says it will look at whether pregnancy test dispensers in bar bathrooms can be more effective at preventing fetal alcohol syndrome than posters by themselves.“Most of the strategies that we’ve used in the past have been relatively effective,” Driscoll says. “But we’re always looking for ways to try and improve our ability to provide information.”So far, the tests are in just four bars statewide, but Driscoll plans to add more soon. He says women are already filling out an online survey they’re asked to take when they use the dispensers.Between health care, education and social service costs, the state can spend millions of dollars on a person with fetal alcohol syndrome over the course of his or her lifetime. So, advocates say the $400,000 pilot project could have huge benefits.“A lot of women now understand that they shouldn’t drink,” Deb Evenson says. Evenson is an Alaska-based educator, whose fetal alcohol prevention work spans more than 30 years.“But a lot of people are still drinking in early pregnancy, and before they know they’re pregnant, and that can cause a lot of damage.”Evenson applauds the pregnancy tests as something new, even if people have known about fetal alcohol syndrome for decades.“This isn’t new information and somehow it’s missing big segments of our society. And so I think all the way that we can share the information in every direction is really a good idea.”Back at the Peanut Farm bar, basketball and hockey play on several giant screens.General Manager Travis Block says he was wary about putting the pregnancy test dispenser in the ladies room at first. But after learning about the prevalence of fetal alcohol syndrome in Alaska, and the potential savings from preventing the disorder, he’s a supporter.“People are going to drink, and that’s what we’re here to do is, you know, provide entertainment. But each person has to make up their own decision on what they want to do with their body.”He says maybe the tests will make some women think twice about how much they drink and what the consequences might be.last_img read more

Sri Lanka blocks social media platforms after Muslim shops mosques attacked

first_imgShops owned by Muslim in Sri Lanka attacked as tensions remain after Easter Sunday bombingstwitterSri Lanka said on Monday it was temporarily blocking some social media networks and messaging apps, including Facebook and WhatsApp, after mosques and Muslim-owned businesses were attacked in the wake of Easter bombings by Islamist militants.Several dozen people threw stones at mosques and Muslim-owned stores and a man was beaten in the town of Chilaw on the west coast on Sunday in a dispute that started on Facebook, sources told Reuters.Authorities said they arrested the author of a Facebook post, identified as 38-year-old Abdul Hameed Mohamed Hasmar, whose online comment “1 day u will cry” locals said was interpreted as threatening violence.Authorities arrested a group in the nearby areas of Kuliyapitiya and Dummalasuriya later on Sunday and early on Monday for allegedly attacking Muslim-owned businesses, a police source told Reuters.Military spokesman Sumith Atapattu said people in the area then demanded the arrested men be released.”To control the situation, a police curfew was imposed during the night,” Atapattu said.The flare-up in violence came three weeks after Sri Lankan Islamist bombers blew themselves up in four hotels and three churches, killing more than 250 people.Since then, Muslim groups say they have received dozens of complaints from across the country about people being harassed. Other communities say they are fearful that the government, which failed to act on successive warnings about looming Islamist attacks, has not caught all potential militants.Sri Lanka has used temporary bans on social media in an attempt to curb misinformation and rumours.”Social media blocked again as a temporary measure to maintain peace in the country,” Nalaka Kaluwewa, the director general of the Department of Government Information, told Reuters on Monday.A violent clash erupted a week ago in Negombo, where more than 100 people were killed during Easter prayers, between Muslims and Christians after a traffic dispute.The government also imposed a ban on social media after that clash.last_img read more

How is the City Addressing Thousands of Sewage Overflows

first_img Share Listen The City of Houston is being taken to task for thousands of violations of the Clean Water Act over the course of five years.The nonprofit group Bayou City Waterkeeper served the city with a 60-day notice of intent to sue over more than 9,000 sewage discharge violations the city had self-reported. The attorney representing Bayou City Waterkeeper suggests the problem could actually be more severe than the city has admitted.What exactly is happening in these sewage discharges and why are so many occurring? Have our major floods affected and exacerbated this problem?In the audio above, Houston Matters producer Michael Hagerty learns more about the violations and their ramifications from Tracy Hester, who teaches environmental law at the UH Law Center.In response to the letter of intent to sue, the City of Houston issued the following statement:In response to a letter from Bayou City Waterkeeper providing a 60-day notice of its intent to sue the City regarding Sanitary Sewer Overflows (“SSOs”), Mayor Sylvester Turner today provided an update on the status of the City’s long-term negotiations with the EPA in connection with improvements of its sanitary sewer system to address SSOs.The City and the EPA have been negotiating the details of a plan for several years, but the damage to the system from Hurricane Harvey and the need to coordinate with FEMA impacted the discussions. Negotiations are now resuming on a plan to supplement the City’s continuation of its work to upgrade its aging sewer system to keep up with the increasing demands of Houston’s rapidly-growing population and to provide enhanced service to the ratepayers.The City is reviewing Waterkeeper’s letter but believes that any issues raised will be addressed in a plan ultimately agreed to with the EPA and the State – the governmental agencies that regulate SSOs. The City’s negotiations with EPA are part of a national program that EPA has been implementing with numerous cities across the nation to reduce SSOs under the Clean Water Act. The City’s analysis of SSO data from 2015 and 2016 indicates that most of the SSOs are the result of grease and other materials causing blockages in the collection system.Houston’s sewer system is one of the largest and most comprehensive in the nation, with more than 6,000 miles of sewer mains, nearly 400 lift stations in its collection system, and 39 wastewater treatment plants. While the City has been negotiating the agreement with the EPA to formalize a program to address additional system performance, the City had already invested billions of dollars two other programs over the last 20 years to enhance the sanitary sewer systems. The Greater Wastewater Program completed in 1997 cost $2.2 billion and involved 430 projects in constructing relief sewers, sewer rehabilitation, and upgrading or replacing lift stations. In 2005, the City also entered into an agreement with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality to spend an additional $755 million to upgrade, clean and renew additional sewer pipes and infrastructure and completed that work ahead of schedule in July 2016.The plan that the City is negotiating with EPA includes additional investment into its wastewater infrastructure, as well as a supplemental environmental project to replace defective private sewer lines in a low-income area of the City where laterals have caused or contributed to SSOs at no cost to the homeowners.The City’s public outreach program to increase awareness of residents and commercial establishments of the need to avoid putting grease down kitchen drains – which can build up in pipes and cause blockages and overflows – is also a continued focus that will lead to direct results benefiting all ratepayers as grease blockages are the leading cause of sanitary sewer overflows. The City will also continue its on-going efforts to educate residents how they can help minimize sewer overflows by ensuring that downspouts, sump pumps, area drains and other features designed to remove rainwater runoff from private residences are not being connected to the sanitary sewer system, as this will contribute to overflow events.“The City of Houston has devoted more than $3 billion in the last 30 years to upgrade and improve its massive wastewater and sewer system infrastructure. The City remains committed to spending more as part of the continuing need to renew and upgrade one of the largest sewer systems in the country for the benefit of our ratepayers,” said Houston Public Works Director Carol Haddock. “The City continues to identify and invest in new technologies and techniques that will enhance future performance as well.” Gail DelaughterView of Buffalo Bayou from Allen Parkway.center_img X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: 00:00 /12:11last_img read more

Israeli model rallies support for Gadhafi son

first_img How do cataracts affect your vision? Comments   Share   “He challenged his father’s regime,” she said.Seif al-Islam, 40, was arrested by Libyan rebels last November, weeks after they captured and killed his father. Held in a Libyan jail, the younger Gadhafi is now caught in a legal tug of war.The International Criminal Court wants him in the dock in the Hague on charges of crimes against humanity for alleged involvement in attacks on civilians during the uprising against his father. Libyan authorities say they will try him for torturing and killing rebels and have refused to hand him over to ICC representatives. His international defense team has said there is no way he can receive a fair trial in Libya. The ICC refused to comment on Weinerman’s efforts.Weinerman said the international community, especially the U.N. Security Council and the same NATO countries that gave military muscle to Libya’s rebels, are responsible for Seif al-Islam’s safety, and called on them to do more to get him into ICC custody. He would likely face the death penalty if convicted in Libya.Weinerman, who appeared in a number of popular Israeli TV shows in the 1990s, also said he should be treated as a prisoner of war because he was arrested on the battlefield. Weinerman’s campaign is remarkable both because of the serious allegations against Seif al-Islam_ he faces murder charges inside Libya and an international war crimes indictment _ and the taboo nature of their relationship. Moammar Gadhafi, who was killed by rebels last October, was a staunch opponent of Israel, and contacts between citizens of the two countries, much less romances, are extremely rare.In an interview, Weinerman described Seif al-Islam as “very calm and quiet, polite, a real gentleman.” She said she was introduced to him by mutual friends in London in 2005, and that their relationship was romantic. She would not elaborate.“He has a great sense of humor and we always had laughs together,” she said.She said she has never visited Libya but said to have met other members of the Gadhafi family. She did not provide names and declined to show The Associated Press any photos, correspondence or other mementos from their time together.Weinerman’s purported romance with Gadhafi first appeared in European tabloids in 2006. But only this month did she go public, hoping to draw attention to his plight.She said that Seif al-Islam was a moderating influence on his father, and that he introduced “some reforms to Libya and he wanted to bring so many more.” Sponsored Stories Libyan officials said last month that Seif al-Islam’s trial would begin in September.The online petition, which aims to collect 50,000 signatures, accuses the ICC of prosecutorial misconduct and says Seif al-Islam “has been the victim of a mass media campaign to implicate his guilt for crimes that he has not committed and for which there is no substantive evidence.”___Associated Press writers David Stringer in London and Mike Corder in The Hague, Netherlands, contributed to this report.___On the Web:The petition can be found at http://bit.ly/sezApNBackground on the case against Gadhafi: http://www.icc-cpi.int/iccdocs/PIDS/publications/SaifAlIslamSenussiEng.pdf Four benefits of having a wireless security system Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Top Stories center_img She was especially critical of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who she says was a close friend of the younger Gadhafi.“They worked together and became very close friends, sharing each other’s company,” she said. She urged Blair to “show some loyalty” and Christian compassion.Blair’s office declined to comment on the accusations. But in the past, it has acknowledged that in 2007 it responded to a request for assistance from Seif al-Islam as he worked on a thesis on international governance at the London School of Economics. The note, drafted by officials, offers some examples of good practice in international civic society and was signed by Blair.Blair has defended his relationship with the Gadhafi family, saying his efforts helped push Libya to curb its nuclear and chemical weapons programs and end ties to terrorist groups.Weinerman claimed it was Seif al-Islam who helped persuade his father to come clean on Libya’s weapons of mass destruction program, an important step in bringing Libya out of isolation and one which Blair touted as a diplomatic triumph.With Seif al-Islam languishing in a Libyan jail controlled by the rebels who caught him, Weinerman sits and waits in Tel Aviv, worrying for his safety. She said she has not had any contact with him since his arrest. Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Former Arizona Rep.

The statement comes as ProPublica came out with a report yesterday about what has been posted in a closed Facebook group for agents and employees. The posts featured sexism and comments that betrayed indifference to migrants who have tried trying to get into the U.S. from Mexico. There were also doctored images of New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is a Democrat. The Border Patrol chief says such posts _ even if made in a private online group _ are “completely inappropriate.”IN THE NEWS: GEORGIA AGENCY SHUT DOWN SOME COURT websiteS AFTER CYBERATTACKATLANTA (AP) — A Georgia state agency is the latest government entity to fall victim to a cyberattack. The Georgia Administrative Office of the Courts says it had to shut down some of its websites because of the electronic incursion. It is unclear how many Georgia courts are affected _ or to what degree their operations are impaired. News outlets report the hackers infected the agency’s computers with malware _ and demanded a ransom to release the computers from the grip of the attack. For now, an agency spokesman says officials have “quarantined our servers and shut off our network to the outside.” The agency’s website was offline yesterday.ON THE WEB: HOLIDAY AIR TRAVEL ADVISORYCYBERSPACE (AP) — Worried about facing huge crowds if you’re travelling by air for the Fourth of July? The TSA says you shouldn’t be. The head of the agency says travellers should see only a slight boost in checkpoint wait times over the four-day holiday weekend. And the TSA says that prediction takes into account the diversion of about 350 workers to the U.S.-Mexico border. Some of those being redeployed to the border are screeners. But TSA chair David Pekoske says the border deployment has not had a measurable impact on airport wait times so far. TSA expects to screen about 12.1 million people between Wednesday and Sunday for the July 4 holiday period.___Online:TSA site: http://www.tsa.govby Oscar Wells Gabriel IIFollow Oscar Wells Gabriel II on Twitter at https://twitter.com/OWGabriel2The Associated Press AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img AM Prep-Cyber Cornerlast_img read more
