Concern about malagasy journalists caught up in political turmoil

first_img The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa MadagascarAfrica News News to go further RSF_en Reporters Without Borders today expressed its renewed concern after five newspapers stopped publishing and several journalists were threatened and physically assaulted during the political upheaval of the past few weeks.The media has become the prisoner of a hostile climate for press freedom since the start of the power struggle between the president, Marc Ravalomanana, and the ousted mayor of Antananarivo, Andry Rajoelina, the worldwide press freedom organisation said.“Independent journalists conscientiously doing their job of informing their fellow citizens on the current political situation are neither demonstrators nor active participants in this crisis. In this very tense political climate, it is essential they are protected,” said Secretary General Jean-François Julliard.Christian Rivo Rakotonirina, former editor of the daily Tribune de Madagascar and now editor of an online newspaper, was beaten up and left in a coma at a meeting in Mahamasina d’Antananarivo stadium held by the president’s supporters. They had accused him of phoning Andry Rajoelina and seized his Blackberry mobile phone before attacking him.He was taken to the Joseph Ravoahangy Andrianavalona university hospital. “My husband is in the neurology department. He is conscious and out of danger but still poorly”, his wife told Reporters Without Borders. “The latest scan showed he has frontal bruising”. On the same day, Tiaray Rakoto, journalist on Inona Ny Vaovao? (What news?), a daily owned by the President, was chased, searched and robbed of his money by pro-Andry Rajoelina militants. The journalist managed to hide his equipment before his assailants got to him. Since these two incidents, Tribune de Madagascar and Inona Ny Vaovao? have decided to cease publishing “until further notice”.Elsewhere, the dailies Midi Madagascar et Gazetiko and the weekly Midi Flash also stopped appearing after arson threats were made against the Midi Madagascar press group, which is owned by a deputy in the ruling party Mamy Rakotoarivelo, whose house was ransacked on 11 March. Also in the capital on 7 March, Sitraka Rafanomezantsoa, journalist on the daily Malaza, was assaulted by the “casseurs de manif” (demo busters) a term used locally to describe the president’s supporters. The journalist told Reporters Without Borders on the phone that “heavies” had beaten him with clubs and iron bars leaving him with bruising to the head and a badly cut eyelid.Similar incidents have happened outside the capital too. At an opposition demonstration held in Tamatave, on the east coast on 19 February, security forces tried to snatch a camera from a journalist with the first name Harilala, working for TV Plus. Police briefly arrested and then released him. A few days earlier in Fianarantsoa in southeastern Madagascar, police threatened Nicolas Rabemananjara, director of TV Plus, ordering him to stop filming an opposition demonstration.Reporters Without Borders Secretary General also appealed to journalists and media who support the president or his chief opponent not to get involved in partisan propaganda or defamation but to demonstrate the greatest professionalism in providing fully checked and objective news”.

Rocks Rich in Silica Present Puzzles for Mars Rover Team

first_img Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Community News This May 22, 2015, view from the Mast Camera (Mastcam) in NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover shows the “Marias Pass” area where a lower and older geological unit of mudstone — the pale zone in the center of the image — lies in contact with an overlying geological unit of sandstone. Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSSIn detective stories, as the plot thickens, an unexpected clue often delivers more questions than answers. In this case, the scene is a mountain on Mars. The clue: the chemical compound silica. Lots of silica. The sleuths: a savvy band of Earthbound researchers whose agent on Mars is NASA’s laser-flashing, one-armed mobile laboratory, Curiosity.NASA’s Curiosity rover has found much higher concentrations of silica at some sites it has investigated in the past seven months than anywhere else it has visited since landing on Mars 40 months ago. Silica makes up nine-tenths of the composition of some of the rocks. It is a rock-forming chemical combining the elements silicon and oxygen, commonly seen on Earth as quartz, but also in many other minerals.“These high-silica compositions are a puzzle. You can boost the concentration of silica either by leaching away other ingredients while leaving the silica behind, or by bringing in silica from somewhere else,” said Albert Yen, a Curiosity science team member at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California. “Either of those processes involve water. If we can determine which happened, we’ll learn more about other conditions in those ancient wet environments.”Water that is acidic would tend to carry other ingredients away and leave silica behind. Alkaline or neutral water could bring in dissolved silica that would be deposited from the solution. Apart from presenting a puzzle about the history of the region where Curiosity is working, the recent findings on Mount Sharp have intriguing threads linked to what an earlier NASA rover, Spirit, found halfway around Mars. There, signs of sulfuric acidity were observed, but Curiosity’s science team is still considering both scenarios — and others — to explain the findings on Mount Sharp.Adding to the puzzle, some silica at one rock Curiosity drilled, called “Buckskin,” is in a mineral named tridymite, rare on Earth and never seen before on Mars. The usual origin of tridymite on Earth involves high temperatures in igneous or metamorphic rocks, but the finely layered sedimentary rocks examined by Curiosity have been interpreted as lakebed deposits. Furthermore, tridymite is found in volcanic deposits with high silica content. Rocks on Mars’ surface generally have less silica, like basalts in Hawaii, though some silica-rich (silicic) rocks have been found by Mars rovers and orbiters. Magma, the molten source material of volcanoes, can evolve on Earth to become silicic. Tridymite found at Buckskin may be evidence for magmatic evolution on Mars.Curiosity has been studying geological layers of Mount Sharp, going uphill, since 2014, after two years of productive work on the plains surrounding the mountain. The mission delivered evidence in its first year that lakes in the area billions of years ago offered favorable conditions for life, if microbes ever lived on Mars. As Curiosity reaches successively younger layers up Mount Sharp’s slopes, the mission is investigating how ancient environmental conditions evolved from lakes, rivers and deltas to the harsh aridity of today’s Mars.Seven months ago, Curiosity approached “Marias Pass,” where two geological layers are exposed in contact with each other. The rover’s laser-firing instrument for examining compositions from a distance, Chemistry and Camera (ChemCam), detected bountiful silica in some targets the rover passed on its way to the contact zone. The rover’s Dynamic Albedo of Neutrons instrument simultaneously detected that the rock composition was unique in this area.“The high silica was a surprise — so interesting that we backtracked to investigate it with more of Curiosity’s instruments,” said Jens Frydenvang of Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and the University of Copenhagen, Denmark.Gathering clues about silica was a major emphasis in rover operations over a span of four months and a distance of about one-third of a mile (half a kilometer).The investigations included many more readings from ChemCam, plus elemental composition measurements by the Alpha Particle X-ray Spectrometer (APXS) on the rover’s arm and mineral identification of rock-powder samples by the Chemistry and Mineralogy (CheMin) instrument inside the rover.Buckskin was the first of three rocks where drilled samples were collected during that period. The CheMin identification of tridymite prompted the team to look at possible explanations: “We could solve this by determining whether trydymite in the sediment comes from a volcanic source or has another origin,” said Liz Rampe, of Aerodyne Industries at NASA’s Johnson Space Center, Houston. “A lot of us are in our labs trying to see if there’s a way to make tridymite without such a high temperature.”Beyond Marias Pass, ChemCam and APXS found a pattern of high silica in pale zones along fractures in the bedrock, linking the silica enrichment there to alteration by fluids that flowed through the fractures and permeated into bedrock. CheMin analyzed drilled material from a target called “Big Sky” in bedrock away from a fracture and from a fracture-zone target called “Greenhorn.” Greenhorn indeed has much more silica, but not any in the form of tridymite. Much of it is in the form of noncrystalline opal, which can form in many types of environments, including soils, sediments, hot spring deposits and acid-leached rocks.“What we’re seeing on Mount Sharp is dramatically different from what we saw in the first two years of the mission,” said Curiosity Project Scientist Ashwin Vasavada of JPL. “There’s so much variability within relatively short distances. The silica is one indicator of how the chemistry changed. It’s such a multifaceted and curious discovery, we’re going to take a while figuring it out.”For more about Curiosity, which is examining sand dunes this month, visit:http://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl/ 2 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Community News Make a comment Business News Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Top of the News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena First Heatwave Expected Next Week center_img Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Fannie Mae Change Aimed at Helping More Struggling Borrowers Avoid Foreclosure

This is a change from the previous policy, when only a borrower’s outstanding principal balance was calculated.As a result of the policy change, more struggling borrowers will qualify for assistance with avoiding foreclosure and more borrowers will receive additional relief under their loan modification, according to Fannie Mae. The Servicing Default Underwriter tool provides real-time evaluation for servicers to provide timely, responsive, and effective foreclosure avoidance help to struggling borrowers.Click here to view the new policy, which can be found in Fannie Mae’s September 9, 2015 Servicing Guide Announcement. Servicers must implement the new policy on or before March 1, 2016; however, the Servicing Management Default Underwriter has been updated as of December 5, 2015, to allow borrowers to more quickly benefit from the change.

According to the study, while 1 in 15 homeowners will experience damage that results in a non-weather water claim during the standard five year insurance policy lifecycle, in Florida, that number jumps to 1 in 3 at the highest, with an average claim probability of 1 in 9.Miami-Dade County is considered the most at risk for non-weather-related damage, with an average claim probability of 1 in 5. Outside of Florida, California and Maryland are at the highest risk for non-weather-related damage by state, with an average claim probability of 1 in 10 in each state.Unlike the storms that hit hit Florida’s coastline too often, these damages often occur inside the home. Damages can include appliance leaks and failures, plumbing leaks and pipe failures, fixtures leaks and failures, or ruptured connecting hoses. In total, Location Inc. notes that insurers lose $8.2 Billion a year from plumbing and appliance leaks, and the average costs for repair is around $6,695. Repairs can cost much more, however, as non-weather water claims vary by location, ranging from $1,354 to $44,686.In Florida, private insurers are focused mainly on non-weather-related risks, and commentary from the Harvard Business Review states that no private insurance companies retain residential flood risk in Florida, Virginia, and other coastal markets due to sea levels, and programs such as the National Flood Insurance Program keeps residents insured.There is also a lack of restrictions on where one can build and what cane be built. “A society that prides itself on free will and self-determination is loath to say what a property owner can and cannot build on their own land as long as it meets rudimentary building and zoning codes: So more and more people move into harm’s way in flood plains, low-lying coastal areas, and tinder dry western landscapes,” the report states.
