But they face a problem with putting this into practice because there are currently no fossil fuel-free portfolios available in South Africa’s financial markets. The motion approved by the synod empowers ACSA to negotiate with financial institutions to create investment portfolios that exclude fossil fuels. If successful, the church could pave the way for a new ethical investment sector in the country.Full article.

Florida to boost widespread COVID-19 antibody testing as trends don’t improve

Posted on

first_imgHospitalizations are up 40 percent statewide over the past two weeks, with Miami-Dade and Pinellas county hospitals near capacity, the American Health Care Association (AHCA) warned.By John Haughey | The Center SquareGov. Ron DeSantis said Florida will expand COVID-19 testing capabilities beyond diagnosing whether someone has the disease to determining whether they have antibodies and how widespread asymptomatic people are.“The problem is if you’re negative, it doesn’t mean you can’t get it the next day. It’s really a fleeting thing to have a negative test,” DeSantis said Monday at The Villages. “If you do an antibody test and have the antibodies, well that’s something very significant in terms of information.” Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Please enter your name here TAGSAntibody TestingCOVID-19Governor Ron DeSantisThe Center Square Previous article“What Goes Where” tool helps Orange County residents recycle the right stuffNext articleOrange Co. clerk’s office hosts free legal forum: Evictions process in a COVID-19 environment Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The Anatomy of Fear Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate You have entered an incorrect email address!

Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Antibody testing, which indicates whether someone had the virus, is available in Florida only for medical professionals and first responders at drive-thru test sites across the state.According to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), antibodies may provide protection from recontracting the virus and help create “herd immunity” to COVID-19.CDC and the University of Miami have conducted antibody testing in south Florida, with results suggesting the virus is 11 to 16 times more prevalent than estimated.Florida reported 6,336 new confirmed cases Monday, raising the total to 206,447 since March 1. Florida set a U.S. record Saturday for most cases in a single day with 11,458.The Florida Department of Health (DOH) COVID-19 dashboard reports 3,880 people have died in the state from COVID-19. Over the past week, an average of 43 people a day have died, up from 30 a day in mid-May but below the 60-a-day average in late April.DeSantis has attributed the spike partially to an increase in testing. About 45,000 tests are being conducted daily statewide, according to DOH, double May’s testing, which was double April’s testing.With many reopened businesses conducting tests on its workers, DeSantis said the statewide median age for those testing positive for COVID-19 has dropped from the mid-50s to the mid-30s.People under 35 years old are less likely to be seriously sickened from COVID-19 than those over 65 years old, but they can spread the disease. DeSantis said Monday the most common age of those testing positive the past few weeks is 21 years old.“From a clinical perspective, 1,000 cases under the age of 30 is going to be less significant than 50 cases in a long-term care facility,” he said.According to DOH, however, the percent of positive tests out of tests conducted is increasing. For the week that ended Saturday, the state’s positivity rate was 18 percent, four times higher than mid-May’s weekly positivity rate of 4.6 percent.“I want us to be in May or in early June, when we were at 3 or 4 percent,” DeSantis said Monday. “We want to get back to that for sure.”Another alarming trend is hospitalizations are up 40 percent statewide over the past two weeks, with Miami-Dade and Pinellas county hospitals near capacity, the American Health Care Association (AHCA) warned.Because of a hospital bed shortage, Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez on Monday ordered restaurants be limited to takeout and delivery services, and he closed gyms, banquet halls and vacation rentals, starting Wednesday.Since mid-May, the county’s daily COVID-19 cases have ballooned from 300 to more than 2,000. On Monday, more than 1,600 COVID-19 patients, including 168 on ventilators, were hospitalized. That number has doubled in two weeks.Gimenez attributed the accelerating outbreak to young adults crowding restaurants and bars without masks or practicing social distancing.“We can tamp down the spread if everyone follows the rules, wears masks and stays at least 6 feet apart,” he said.U.S. Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, the incumbent Democrat that Republican Gimenez is running against in their November congressional election, tweeted Monday that Gimenez reopened too soon “just to please” DeSantis and President Donald Trump.“This is failed leadership,” she said. “Our community deserves better.” Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

Journalist given suspended three-year prison for publishing phoney political advertising

first_img Receive email alerts Ukrainian media group harassed by broadcasting authority Crimean journalist “confesses” to spying for Ukraine on Russian TV Reporters Without Borders deplored the “severity” of a three-year suspended prison sentence imposed on editor Vasyl Herus of the weekly Sim Dniv on 21 July for publishing a bogus electoral programme for Viktor Yushchenko (now president) during last year’s election campaign. It also wondered why the authorities had failed to prosecute the person who placed the bogus ad. to go further Follow the news on Ukraine Reporters Without Borders condemned the severity of a suspended three-year prison sentence against editor Vasyl Herus for publishing a bogus electoral programme for Viktor Yushchenko in the form of political advertising days ahead of the second round of presidential elections. Herus, editor of weekly newspaper, Sim Dniv (Seven Days), was sentenced by the municipal court in Rivne, north-east Ukraine on 21 July 2005 for the 19 November 2004 article.”We deplore the severity of this sentence against Vasyl Herus. The journalist did indeed display lack of care in publishing false information in advertising form,” said Reporters Without Borders. “But one can only wonder why the author and whoever was behind this false electoral programme has not been investigated in this case.”The journalist signed a contract with the pro-Yanukovich Party of Regions to publish two articles entitled, “The political objectives of Victor Yushchenko” and “The political objectives of Viktor Yanukovich” in the form of advertising editorials and carried in Sim Dniv which has a circulation of 5,000.”The content of the bogus political programme was in effect classic counter advertising, ascribing quite crazy political intentions to Viktor Yushchenko” admitted Svetlana Kolko, new editor of Sim Dniv. “But when the newspaper received it, the disk was already formatted in such a way that it was difficult to check the contents. We were taken in as well,” she told Reporters Without Borders.Judge Viktor Koukharets sitting at the Rivne municipal court, cited Article 161 (racial, national or religious discrimination) and Article 157 (infringing citizens’ electoral rights) of the criminal code to sentence Herus to three years in prison suspended for one year. He was also ordered to make a public apology to President Viktor Yushchenko.Herus, who believes that he did comply with Ukraine’s advertising law, has decided to appeal.

Oceanographic variability on the West Antarctic Peninsula during the Holocene and the influence of upper circumpolar deep water

Posted on

first_imgRecent intensification of wind-driven upwelling of warm upper circumpolar deep water (UCDW) has been linked to accelerated melting of West Antarctic ice shelves and glaciers. To better assess the long term relationship between UCDW upwelling and the stability of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, we present a multi-proxy reconstruction of surface and bottom water conditions in Marguerite Bay, West Antarctic Peninsula (WAP), through the Holocene. A combination of sedimentological, diatom and foraminiferal records are, for the first time, presented together to infer a decline in UCDW influence within Marguerite Bay through the early to mid Holocene and the dominance of cyclic forcing in the late Holocene. Extensive glacial melt, limited sea ice and enhanced primary productivity between 9.7 and 7.0 ka BP is considered to be most consistent with persistent incursions of UCDW through Marguerite Trough. From 7.0 ka BP sea ice seasons increased and productivity decreased, suggesting that UCDW influence within Marguerite Bay waned, coincident with the equatorward migration of the Southern Hemisphere Westerly Winds (SWW). UCDW influence continued through the mid Holocene, and by 4.2 ka BP lengthy sea ice seasons persisted within Marguerite Bay. Intermittent melting and reforming of this sea ice within the late Holocene may be indicative of episodic incursions of UCDW into Marguerite Bay during this period. The cyclical changes in the oceanography within Marguerite Bay during the late Holocene is consistent with enhanced sensitively to ENSO forcing as opposed to the SWW-forcing that appears to have dominated the early to mid Holocene. Current measurements of the oceanography of the WAP continental shelf suggest that the system has now returned to the early Holocene-like oceanographic configuration reported here, which in both cases has been associated with rapid deglaciation.last_img read more
