Less than two weeks after a chemical leak was reported at the BP Texas City Refinery, emergency management officials reported a fire at the facility on Tuesday afternoon.

The fire was extinguished at 3:05 p.m., according to a statement released Tuesday by a BP representative.

Crews will remain at the refinery to prevent any fire flare-ups.

Bruce Clawson, spokesman for the Texas City Office of Emergency Management, told FOX 26 News that the oil fire originated from one of the units in the plant.

The fire, reported on Tuesday afternoon, left large plumes of smoke wafting into the atmosphere and caused Texas City OEM to declare Level 2 emergency status.

Clawson says OEM officials are monitoring the situation closely and that there is no impact to the Texas City community.

No injuries were reported in the fire and Texas City OEM did not issue a shelter-in-place order.

The resid hydrotreater was deactivated, according to the BP statement, but the rest of the refinery continues to operate.

Pakistan: 26 killed in a head-on collision between a van and truck near Bahawalpur

A Pakistani police official says 26 people were killed when a passenger van and a truck collided near the central city of Bahawalpur.

The police chief of Bahawalpur, Suhail Tajik, says Tuesday’s accident took place on a section of the highway outside the city.

He says the passenger van was overtaking another vehicle when it slammed into an oncoming truck. The van was completely destroyed.

Rescuers moved 10 injured passengers to the city hospital.

All were in serious condition. Pakistan has a well-developed highway system but drivers often ignore basic safety rules.

Tuesday, 30 October, 2012 at 17:12 (05:12 PM) UTC RSOE

Those taken to hospital later died from their injuries.

“Twenty-six people, including 11 women and two children, were confirmed dead in the accident, said the district police officer, adding that the accident was caused by overspeeding. A senior doctor at the Bahawal-Victoria Hospital, Muhammad Irshad Chaudhry, confirmed the casualties.

The victims, included five members of the same family, belonged to Mubarakpur

President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf expressed grief and sorrow over the loss of lives in the traffic accident. They directed the authorities to ensure the best treatment for the injured.” Geo TV

MSNBC reports Post-tropical Storm #Sandy Center just made landfall near Atlantic City New Jersey

Sandy Makes Landfall

Post-Tropical Cyclone Sandy made landfall at 8pm ET on October 29, 2012 about 5 miles southwest of Atlantic City, NJ, as seen in this NOAA GOES-13 satellite colorized infrared image from the same time. Official projections from the National Hurricane Center have the storm moving westward through Pennsylvania and then moving north into New York. The change in designation from hurricane to post-tropical cyclone is due to a continued deterioration of the convective center of the system, characteristic of tropical cyclones and hurricanes. However, Sandy is just as dangerous – sustained 80 mph winds along with heavy rainfall, surge, and coastal and inland flooding are expected as this storm continues to move inland.

..no severe thunderstorm areas forecast…


former tropical cyclone Sandy and middle-latitude upper trough that
formed over the southern Appalachians on Sunday have evolved into an
expansive upper low centered over the Maryland-PA border this morning. The
system should weaken as it edges a bit farther west or west-northwest today…and
should turn more northward tonight as it continues to slowly fill. Polar air
has completely engulfed residual surface low now over S central
PA…leaving axis of relatively warm/moist air originating in the
central Atlantic displaced well to the north and east across parts of New
England. Modest low-level buoyancy in this corridor may yield a
marginal thunderstorm/conditional severe risk over central and eastern New England.

Elsewhere…dry weather will prevail over the central U.S. And much of
the west as a ridge amplifies over the Great Basin in response to strong
system approaching the Pacific northwest.

..cntrl/eastern New England through early Wednesday…
Plume of enhanced low-level moisture originating near Bermuda will
stream northward into eastern New England today…on far eastern fringe of Maryland-PA
upper low. Coupled with relatively warm air mass already present
across the region /reflecting anomalous blocking high of recent days
over the Canadian Maritimes/ and modest low-level confluence…a low
probabilistic risk will exist for the development of scattered thunderstorms.

Given strong…largely unidirectional deep field /with 850-700 mb
flow around 40-50 kts/…a conditional threat will exist for isolated
low-topped storms capable of severe gusts…especially later today
through this evening. Location of surface low in PA will keep near-surface winds
over most of New England backed to an Ely component. While this will
diminish low-level buoyancy /especially near the coast/…it may
sufficiently enhance low-level hodograph curvature to pose a risk for
a brief tornado in any stronger/more sustained updrafts that do
form. Upslope component to flow could enhance the potential for
storms in New Hampshire and ME. Finally…some increase in large scale forcing
for ascent/DCVA may occur over southern and eastern New England late
tonight/early Wednesday as the PA upper low begins to edge northward and the system
assumes more of a negative tilt. This may maintain or perhaps
somewhat increase prospects for thunderstorm development over parts of New
England later in the forecast period.

Concerning…severe potential…watch possible

Probability of watch issuance…40 percent

Summary…low-end/isolated severe potential to gradually evolve
across New England over the next several hours. Ww may become
necessary.

Discussion…latest radar imagery shows showers and
isolated/occasional thunderstorms streaming nwwd off the Atlantic
and onshore across New England…on the northestern side of the remnants of
Hurricane Sandy. While little lightning has been observed…models
have consistently forecast an increase in deep convection this
am…as middle-level temperatures cool/lapse rates steepen with time.
While a shallow/somewhat stable boundary layer persists…a nwwd
stream of higher low-level Theta-E air will persist which — given
the aforementioned middle-level cooling — will result in very modest
destabilization of the airmass with time.

With very strong /50-plus knots/ northwesterly flow just off the
surface…downward transport of momentum will become increasingly
possible as convection becomes stronger/more widespread within the
weakly destabilizing environment. Additionally…the rapid increase
— and weak veering — of the wind field with height in the lowest
1-2 km would likewise support brief tornado potential within
stronger cells. Indeed…a few weakly rotating cells have been
observed moving onshore this morning…and expect this trend to
continue/increase over the next few hours.

Overall…severe potential should remain very isolated and low-end
through this morning. Still…given the strength of the background
kinematic environment…an increase in coverage and intensity of
convection — even locally — would result in a corresponding
increase in severe threat.

Superstorm Sandy delivers a devastating blow to the U.S.

Published: 3:23 PM GMT on October 30, 2012

“In a stunning spectacle of atmospheric violence, Superstorm Sandy roared ashore in New Jersey last night with sustained winds of 90 mph and a devastating storm surge that crippled coastal New Jersey and New York. Sandy’s record size allowed the historic storm to bring extreme weather to over 100 million Americans, from Chicago to Maine and from Michigan to Florida. Sandy’s barometric pressure at landfall was 946 mb, tying the Great Long Island Express Hurricane of 1938 as the most powerful storm ever to hit the Northeast U.S. north of Cape Hatteras, NC. New York City experienced its worst hurricane since its founding in 1624, as Sandy’s 9-foot storm surge rode in on top of a high tide to bring water levels to 13.88′ at The Battery, smashing the record 11.2′ water level recorded during the great hurricane of 1821. Damage from Superstorm Sandy will likely be in the tens of billions, making the storm one of the five most expensive disasters in U.S. history.”

New York Subway/MTA Service Suspended Due to Hurricane Sandy

Service on the NYC Subway and bus network, Long Island Rail Road, Metro-North Railroad, and Staten Island Railway is suspended. Access-A-Ride service, including subscription service is suspended until further notice.The MTA began an orderly shutdown of commuter rail and subway service, as directed by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, at 7:00 p.m. Sunday, October 28th. The decision to shut down the MTA network was made to protect customers, employees and equipment from the wrath of Hurricane Sandy as the strong storm continues its march up the east coast. This is the only the second time the full network has been shut down preemptively in connection with a weather event.

Subway and rail road stations are closed and access to Penn Station has been restricted. Grand Central Terminal is closed.

The MTA Hurricane Plan calls for suspending service hours before the approach of winds of 39 mph and higher. That gives MTA crews time to prepare rail and subway cars, buses, tunnels, yards and buildings for the storm, then return to safety. Winds of 39 mph and higher are predicted to reach the metropolitan region during the predawn hours Monday.

The MTA began preparing to suspend service several days in advance by readying recovery equipment, clearing drainage areas, moving vehicles from low-lying areas at bus depots and rail yards and sealing some tunnel access points.

The duration of the service suspension is unknown, and there is no timetable for restoration. Service will be restored only when it is safe to do so, and after careful inspections of all equipment, tracks and other sub-systems. Even with minimal damage this is expected to be a lengthy process.

Customers and the media should monitor this website or call 511 for the most current service information.

New York City Transit

MTA New York City Transit subway and bus service was suspended on Sunday October 28th, along with Staten Island Railway (SIR) and Access-A-Ride services.  All mass transit has been suspended in anticipation of the high winds and heavy rains and the significant storm surge driven by Hurricane Sandy.

Maintenance crews worked through the night, taking the necessary steps to protect and secure vital equipment in bus depots, train yards, tunnels and along the right-of-way. This process is taking several hours but most of the work will completed prior to the onset of sustained 39 miles-per-hour tropical force winds.

Long Island Rail Road

MTA Long Island Rail Road has suspended all train service system wide, in advance of Hurricane Sandy making landfall, for the safety of its customers, employees and to protect its equipment.  Access to the LIRR portion of Penn Station and to Jamaica Station is restricted.

Suspending service allows the LIRR to secure and protect its equipment and infrastructure from the strong winds and flooding expected to hit the Long Island on Monday.  With the shutdown, train equipment – both electric and diesel – will be removed from yards in low-lying areas that are prone to flooding.

Metro-North Railroad

Metro-North has suspended all train service due to the expected severity of Hurricane Sandy and its impact on our territory.

Shutting down the system allows Metro-North to secure and protect its equipment and infrastructure from the hurricane force winds and flooding expected to hit the region.

Bridges and Tunnels

The Hugh L. Carey Tunnel (formerly Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel) has been closed in both directions as directed by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo until further notice due to potential flooding as a result of the oncoming storm.

All other MTA crossings remain open as of 2 p.m. on Monday, October 29, 2012.

Motorists are asked to reduce speeds to 25 mph at all crossings due to wind and rain.

In addition, certain types of vehicles including step vans, tractor trailers, motorcycles and vehicles pulling a trailer are barred from crossing the Marine Parkway-Gil Hodges and Cross Bay Veterans bridges at this time due to sustained winds above 50 mph.

Powerful Sandy Making Final Push Toward Mid-Atlantic

UPDATED 2 PM EDT, October 29, 2012

UPDATED By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Seth Carrier

Enlarge

Dangerous Hurricane Sandy remains powerful as it moves toward the Atlantic coast this afternoon. Landfall is expected along the southern New Jersey coast early this evening. Destructive winds producing massive power outages, life-threatening storm surge and inland flooding and hurricane-force coastal winds are all on the weather menu for the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast as Sandy comes ashore.
Tropical Storm Warnings are in effect from north of Surf City to Duck, N.C., including Pamlico and Albemarle Sounds. Widespread High Wind Warnings stretch from Virginia to Maine and westward into Ohio, with Wind Advisories from Michigan to Georgia.
Preparations to protect life and property should be completed already, and if you have not evacuated, it is likely too late to do so. Tropical storm force wind gusts are already being felt as far north as Long Island and southeastern New England. Hurricane force winds are likely tonight from Chincoteague, Va., to Chatham, Mass., including Delaware Bay, New York City and Long Island.
Sandy`s effects will only grow and worsen across the highly-populated Interstate 95 corridor in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic today and tomorrow. For the most up-to-date information, click here.
As of 2 p.m. EDT, Hurricane Sandy was centered near 38.3 N and 73.1 W, or 110 miles southeast of Atlantic City, N.J., and 175 miles south- southeast of New York City. Its top sustained winds are 90 mph, making it a Category One Hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Sandy is moving northwest at 28 mph and its minimum central pressure has dropped again to 940 mb, or 27.76 inches of mercury.
Hurricane Sandy remains strong as it passes over the Gulf Stream, and it is expected to remain a hurricane as it bends to the northwest. This will put the center on a path to come ashore near or just south of Atlantic City, N.J. As it approaches the coastline, it will finally lose its tropical characteristics, becoming an extremely strong low pressure system.
The slow transition to a non-tropical low has allowed the winds to spread out from the center, and is what makes Sandy so dangerous. Its hurricane force winds extend 175 miles from the storm`s circulation center and tropical storm force winds up to 485 miles from Sandy`s center. This makes Sandy one of the largest storms in recorded history. As a result, Sandy`s impact will be far-reaching, with damaging winds across the entire Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, and even as far west as the Chicago area. It is imperative to monitor the entire storm, not just its center.

L’ouragan de sable reste forte qu’elle passe au-dessus du Gulf Stream, et il devrait rester un ouragan comme il se plie au nord-ouest. Cela mettra le centre sur un chemin de descendre à terre à proximité ou juste au sud d’Atlantic City, NJ À l’approche de la côte, il finira par perdre ses caractéristiques tropicales, devenant ainsi un système de pression extrêmement forte à faible.

La lente transition vers une faible non-tropical a permis aux vents de se propager à partir du centre, et c’est ce qui rend si dangereux de sable. Ses vents de force ouragan s’étendent 175 miles du centre de la tempête `s la circulation et tropicales vents de force tempête jusqu’à 485 miles du centre de sable` s. Cela fait un sable des plus grandes tempêtes de l’histoire. En conséquence, l’impact de sable s `est de grande envergure, avec des vents destructeurs à travers l’ensemble du littoral de l’Atlantique et du Nord, et même aussi loin à l’ouest que la région de Chicago.

26 Oct 2012:

Sandy has left 21 dead, is likely to merge into #Frankenstorm, ravage New England.

(CNN) — No one hopes Hurricane Sandy lives up to its potential.

The storm that has already claimed nearly two dozen lives in the Caribbean churned Friday near northern Bahamas, and meteorologists warn that it packs the potential to slam the Northeastern United States as soon as Monday with powerful winds, pelting rain and cold temperatures.

Worst case, Sandy could merge with a strong cold front from the west. The double threat could morph into a “superstorm” that could sit over New England for days, making untold trouble for millions of residents. Weather experts said it’s a recipe not unlike 1991’s “Perfect Storm.”

At 11 a.m. ET Friday, forecasters said Sandy is losing shape and is a Category 1 hurricane with winds of 80 mph. But it’s not to be taken lightly.

Keep a hurricane preparation checklist

Hurricane Sandy ‘storm of a lifetime’
Hurricane Sandy hits Jamaica

“Forget about the category with this,” said CNN meteorologist Rob Marciano. “When you have trees with leaves on them still, this kind of wind and rain on top of that, you’re talking about trees that are going to come down, power lines are going to be out and the coastal flooding situation is going to be huge.”

Sandy’s death toll in Haiti, Jamaica and Cuba this week was 21 people.

The U.S. target area is hard to predict at this point. Some landfall computer models show the storm striking somewhere between Washington and Boston — some of the most densely populated areas of the country.

U.S. residents in those areas, forecasters said, should prepare for the possibility of several days without power.

“There is potential for widespread power outages, not just for a couple of days but for a couple of weeks or more, if the storm stays on track,” said meteorologist Kathy Orr of CNN affiliate KYW-TV in Philadelphia.

Sandy could be a storm “of historic proportion,” she warns, and the City of Brotherly Love could take a direct hit.

“This could be like the ‘Perfect Storm’ 21 years ago,” said CNN meteorologist Chad Meyers.

A combination of three weather systems produced the famed “Perfect Storm” in the north Atlantic over Halloween 1991 when moisture flung north by Hurricane Grace combined with a high pressure system and a cold front, according to the weather service.

Hurricane safety: When the lights go out

The current weather conditions are not exactly the same as what produced the 1991 tempest. Although Grace contributed significantly to the storm, it did not progress to New England and did not make landfall, weather records show.

On Friday, residents in South Jersey were alreadystocking up on batteries and bottled water, and hardware stores have put up preparedness displays, KYW reported. One location quickly sold out of electric generators.

“This is the worst timing for a storm,” Newark Mayor Cory Booker told CNN’s Soledad O’Brien. “You have fall ending, a lot of loose branches.

“The storm itself will be bad, but I worry about the aftermath, people being caught without power.”

Along the Jersey shore, storm preparations included bulldozers shoring up piers with mounds of sand. Worried residents filled sandbags in case of flooding.

“We will be piling up as much sand as possible along the beachfront,” said Frank Ricciotti, Margate, New Jersey, public works director. “I think the water damage is worse than another type of damage, and the hardest thing is to stop water, once it starts coming up.”

With a national election already under way in many early voting states, Sandy’s wrath also could have a ripple effect on politics.

Bad weather in Maryland or Washington could make it harder for people to get out and cast their ballots at early voting locations. Early voting kicked off Monday in Washington and will start Saturday in Maryland.

“From Sunday through Wednesday, winds of hurricane force are expected to lash exposed areas of the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic states, leading to potentially serious coastal erosion and coastal flooding,” the National Hurricane Center reported.

The weather service also warns “the buildup of tides over multiple tidal cycles should exacerbate the situation.”

Sandy Forces Cancellation of About 300 Blood Drives

“Those who are eligible in areas unaffected by the storm are asked to schedule a blood donation now.

Superstorm Sandy has already caused the cancellation of about 300 American Red Cross blood drives and more cancellations are expected as the storm continues to move to the west.

“Patients will still need blood despite the weather,” said Dr. Richard Benjamin, chief medical officer of the Red Cross. “To ensure a sufficient national blood supply is available for those in need, both during and after the storm passes, it is critical that those in unaffected areas make an appointment to donate blood as soon as possible.”

So far, the cancellations have resulted in a shortfall of more than 9,000 blood and platelet donations across 14 states that would otherwise be available for those needing transfusions. The situation may worsen as the storm continues to move and in its aftermath.

The Red Cross did move blood and blood products to those areas most likely to be affected by Sandy so that the blood needs of people in those communities could be met. However, the long- term impact of power outages and blood drive cancellations is expected to be significant.

SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT

Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood. An average of 44,000 blood donations are needed each and every day across the country to help treat accident victims, cancer patients, and children with blood disorders. These patients and others rely on blood products during their treatment. This need does not diminish when disaster strikes.

WHO CAN GIVE? All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license, or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental permission in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are generally in good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.” – redcrossblood.org

Much media focus on the United States but don’t forget the Caribbean

“Jamaica

Sandy was the first direct hit by the eye of a hurricane on Jamaica since Hurricane Gilbert 24 years ago. The storm hit Jamaica as a category 1 hurricane. Extensive damage was reported on the island. Trees and power lines were snapped and shanty houses were heavily damaged, both from the winds and flooding rains. More than 100 fishermen were stranded in outlying Pedro Cays off Jamaica’s southern coast.[7] Stones falling from a hillside crushed one man to death as he tried to get into his house in a rural village near Kingston.[8] The country’s sole electricity provider, the Jamaica Public Service Company, reported that 70 percent of its customers were without power. Looters shot and wounded a police official as he led a group of officers through Craig Town, a section of West Kingston. More than 1,000 people went to shelters, the Office of Disaster Preparedness said. Jamaican authorities closed the island’s international airports, and police ordered 48-hour curfews in major towns to keep people off the streets and deter looting. Cruise ships changed their itineraries to avoid the storm, which made landfall the afternoon of October 24 near the capital, Kingston.[9]

The day after the storm, government officials went on an aerial tour of the rural eastern areas of the island. Parliament member Daryl Vaz reported that most buildings had lost their roofs, in addition to widespread damage to banana crops. Approximately 70 percent of the island lost power because of Sandy, and schools in the Kingston area would likely remain closed for a week. Resorts in Montego Bay and Negril sustained no major damage, and cruise ship terminals reopened to vessels after a 24-hour suspension of services. Authorities warned that the extent of the damage is not clear, since some major roads remained impassable, and it would likely be weeks before life in most areas returned to normal.[10] Damage totaled $16.5 million throughout the country.[11]

Haiti

In Haiti, which was still recovering from both the 2010 earthquake and the ongoing cholera outbreak, at least 52 people have died,[12] and an estimated 200,000 were left homeless as of October 29, as a result of four days of ongoing rain from Hurricane Sandy.[13] Reports of significant damage to Port-Salut were received as rivers overflowed their banks.[14] In the capital of Port-au-Prince whole streets were flooded by the heavy rains and “the whole south of the country is underwater”.[15] Most of the tents and buildings in the city’s sprawling refugee camps and the CitĂ© Soleil neighborhood were flooded or leaking, a repeat of what happened earlier in the year during the passage of Hurricane Isaac.[10] The United Nations warned that flooding and unsanitary conditions could lead to a cholera epidemic once again two years after a cholera epidemic in 2010 sickened 600,000 people and killed more than 7,400. In addition, crops were also wiped out by the storm” and the country would be making an appeal for emergency aid.[16]

Dominican Republic

In the Dominican Republic two people were killed and 8,755 people evacuated as officials said the rains were expected to continue until at least October 27.[17][18] Travelling by vehicle was very hard in places as some roads had high water levels. An employee of CNN estimated 70% of the streets in Santo Domingo were flooded. Some cars were underwater, and people with trucks were charging motorists $5 to pull their vehicles out, while others were doing it for free.[19]

Cuba

Hurricane Sandy damage in Guantanamo Bay

Hurricane Sandy strengthened into a Category 2 hurricane before hitting Cuba.[20] At least 55,000 people had been evacuated principally because of expected flooding from rains that could total up to 20 inches (500 mm) in some places and a storm surge the Cuban weather service said was already beginning along the southeastern coast around midnight EDT.[21] Sandy made landfall just west of Santiago de Cuba, the country’s second-largest city, as a strong Category 2 hurricane, with the strong eastern eyewall passing directly over the city.[22][23] The eye of the storm came ashore just west of the city with waves up to 29 feet (9 meters) and a six-foot (2 meter) storm surge that caused extensive coastal flooding.[24]

Reports from the area after the passage of Sandy spoke of widespread damage, particularly to Santiago de Cuba. Throughout the province, 132,733 homes were damaged, of which 15,322 were destroyed and 43,426 lost their roof.[25] Electricity and water services had been knocked out, and most of the trees in the city had either been ripped off their roots or had lost all their leaves. Several Cuban provinces promised to send brigades to help Santiago recover, although officials gave a long list of other towns that suffered devastation. Guantánamo followed a similar fate to Santiago, with television showing telephone poles and cables down across the city. Several historic buildings in the center of town were reportedly damaged.[citation needed] Total losses throughout Santiago de Cuba province reached CUP2.1 billion (US$80 million).[25]

State media has said at least 11 people in Cuba were killed as a result of the storm, and Raúl Castro planned to visit Santiago de Cuba in the coming days. Nine of the deaths were in Santiago de Cuba Province and two were in Guantánamo Province and most of the victims were trapped in destroyed houses.[26][27] This makes Sandy the deadliest hurricane to hit Cuba since 2005, when Hurricane Dennis killed 16 people.[28]

Damage to the U.S. Guantanamo Bay Naval Base was not as severe, and there were no reports of injuries at the base. The highest sustained winds were below hurricane strength at 54 miles per hour (87 km/h), with a maximum gust of 66 miles per hour (106 km/h). The storm damaged roofs and windows in a few older buildings and tore some of the power cables within the facility. Several recreational boats broke off their moorings, but there was no damage to the prison, according to Navy Capt. Robert Durand.[29]

Puerto Rico

Police said a man was killed on October 26 in Juana Diaz. He was swept away in a river swollen by rain from Sandy’s outer bands. In addition, flooding forced at least 100 families in the southwest to seek new shelter.[30] “

Powerful Typhoon Son-Tinh Slams in to Vietnam / 28 October

Published on October 28, 2012 by Robert Speta (Broadcast meteorologist for NHK World in Tokyo Japan):

People in the Capital city of Vietnam are bracing themselves today for impact of a powerful Typhoon. Flooding in the area is high at risk and low lying areas near the immediate coast should defiantly be on guard for storm surge as the storm meanders up the coastlines towards the China Vietnam border. Meanwhile we look at the bay of bengal where a area of energy may bring the risk of flooding in Southern India, and then lastly we quickly update on the on going tsunami event towards Hawaii.

A successful missile test has ushered in a new era of warfare in which the U.S. military can take out electronic targets without destroying a single building.

The experimental missile fired bursts of high-power microwaves at several target buildings to fry the computers and electrical systems inside during a test at the Utah Test and Training Range on Oct. 16. Such results signaled success for the Counter-electronics High-powered Advanced Missile Project (CHAMP) created by Boeing Phantom Works and the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory.

“In the near future, this technology may be used to render an enemy’s electronic and data systems useless even before the first troops or aircraft arrive,” said Keith Coleman, CHAMP program manager for Boeing Phantom Works.

6 Scientists found guilty of #manslaughter for failing to predict #Italy #earthquake! – 231012 1350Z

Copied from BBC News:

Six Italian scientists and an ex-government official have been sentenced to six years in prison over the 2009 deadly earthquake in L’Aquila.

A regional court found them guilty of multiple manslaughter.

Prosecutors said the defendants gave a falsely reassuring statement before the quake, while the defence maintained there was no way to predict major quakes.

The 6.3 magnitude quake devastated the city and killed 309 people.

It took Judge Marco Billi slightly more than four hours to reach the verdict in the trial, which had begun in September 2011.

‘Alarming’ case

The seven – all members of the National Commission for the Forecast and Prevention of Major Risks – were accused of having provided “inexact, incomplete and contradictory” information about the danger of the tremors felt ahead of 6 April 2009 quake, Italian media report.

Survivor Giustino Parisse spoke to Newsnight in 2011

In addition to their sentences, all have been barred from ever holding public office again, La Repubblica reports.

In the closing statement, the prosecution quoted one of its witnesses, whose father died in the earthquake.

It described how Guido Fioravanti had called his mother at about 11pm on the night of the earthquake – straight after the first tremor.

“I remember the fear in her voice. On other occasions they would have fled but that night, with my father, they told themselves what the risk commission had said. And they stayed.”

‘Hasty sentence’

The judge also ordered the defendants to pay court costs and damages.

Lawyers have said that they will appeal against the sentence.

THOSE CONVICTED

  • Franco Barberi, head of Serious Risks Commission
  • Enzo Boschi, former president of the National Institute of Geophysics
  • Giulio Selvaggi, director of National Earthquake Centre
  • Gian Michele Calvi, director of European Centre for Earthquake Engineering
  • Claudio Eva, physicist
  • Mauro Dolce, director of the the Civil Protection Agency’s earthquake risk office
  • Bernardo De Bernardinis, former vice-president of Civil Protection Agency’s technical department

Reacting to the verdict against him, Bernardo De Bernardinis said: “I believe myself to be innocent before God and men.”

“My life from tomorrow will change,” the former vice-president of the Civil Protection Agency’s technical department said, according to La Repubblica.

“But, if I am judged by all stages of the judicial process to be guilty, I will accept my responsibility.”

One of the lawyers for the defence, Marcello Petrelli, described the sentence as “hasty” and “incomprehensible”.

The case has alarmed many in the scientific community, who feel science itself has been put on trial.

Some scientists have warned that the case might set a damaging precedent, deterring experts from sharing their knowledge with the public for fear of being targeted in lawsuits, the BBC’s Alan Johnston in Rome reports.

Earlier, more than 5,000 scientists signed an open letter to Italian President Giorgio Napolitano in support of the group in the dock.

Scientists aghast over Italian quake verdicts

By Jethro Mullen, CNN
October 23, 2012 — Updated 1123 GMT (1923 HKT)

(CNN) — “Earthquake experts around the world say they are appalled by an Italian court’s decision to convict six scientists on manslaughter charges for failing to predict the deadly quake that devastated the city of L’Aquila. They warned the ruling could severely harm future scientific research.

The court in L’Aquila sentenced the scientists and a government official Monday to six years in prison, ruling that they didn’t accurately communicate the risk of the earthquake in 2009 that killed more than 300 people.”

“…Seismologists were aghast at the court’s decision, noting that earthquakes remain impossible to forecast with any kind of accuracy.

Bungling DWP officials have published the Atos tender document for the new Personal Independence Payment and given away reams of highly confidential commercial information in the process.

The documents contain pages of technical information about Atos’ internal systems, financial information and even the names of people who will be involved in managing the new PIP benefit assessments.  Other documents reveal how Capita will be involved in the assessments.

Atos, who notoriously carry out the Work Capability Assessment for those on out of work sickness and disability benefits, have been given the contract to manage the assessments for PIP.  These assessments will be based on the same crude computer based tests as the WCA and are to be used to re-assess disabled people currently claiming Disability Living Allowance.  The stated aim is to strip benefits from 20% of disabled people.

Astonishingly Atos claim in their tender that they have a “successful…

Representatives from the three different companies chosen by NASA to develop private space taxis to carry astronauts to orbit say their vehicles are making substantial progress toward launching people into orbit within the next few years.

The companies — Space Exploration Technologies Corp. (SpaceX), The Boeing Company and Sierra Nevada Corp. — are competing to fill the gap left by NASA’s retired space shuttles for the launching of cargo and crews to the International Space Station. Each private space taxi firm has received funding from NASA under the Commercial Crew integrated Capability program (CCiCap) to complete a series of development milestones with the goal of taking over transportation to low-Earth orbit from the Russians.

“We’re going great guns, we’re working very hard, and we hope to have people flying very soon inside the Dragon,” SpaceX’s commercial crew project manager Garrett Reisman said on Oct. 17 at the International Symposium for…

Radiation-Loving Fungi Can Remove Toxic Waste

Jaacto Mist

By Reid Schram

October 2, 2011

When Russian scientists sent a robot into the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in 2007, the last thing they expected to find was life. Inside the most radioactive areas of the breached core was a group of common fungi collectively referred to as “black mold” growing on the reactor walls.

These molds were growing in one of the most hostile environments on the planet, with radiation levels high enough to give a lethal dose in minutes. But these fungi weren’t just growing, they were thriving.

A researcher at New York’s Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Arturo Casadevall, investigated these resistant molds and helped to identify several distinct species.

They all shared one very interesting characteristic—they all contained the skin pigment melanin.

Perhaps the most interesting was a common species of black mold, Cryptococcus neoformans. This fungus does not normally contain melanin, but when exposed to…

(CNN) — “Officials in Bermuda warned residents to prepare Monday as Tropical Storm Rafael neared hurricane strength in the central Atlantic.

The island’s top emergency official said residents and tourists should see strong winds and rough seas as the storm approaches on Tuesday. Still, he expressed confidence that the impact would be minimal.

“We are expecting the worst of the storm to pass to our east, and it will therefore be business as usual tomorrow,” Wayne Perinchief, chairman of Bermuda’s Emergency Measures Organization, said Monday.”

Robert SpetaBroadcast meteorologist for NHK World in Tokyo Japan: “Prapiroon is still packing a punch in Okinawa today where 122kph wind gust have been recorded. Meanwhile in Kyushu 78mm per hour rain has been seen on Wednesday due to a frontal area storming across mainland Japan. These two storms have created a 1, 2 punch for much of Japan resulting in flooding, traffic snarl ups and worst of all one person severely injured due to a lightning strike.

This update lets you know what to expect next as Prapiroon continues to rush North East along the East Coast of Japan.”

Missing hikers found in good condition in Glacier NP

Summit County Citizens Voice

Three-day search ends successfully

By Summit Voice

SUMMIT COUNTY — After a three-day search, rescue crews located a pair of missing hikers in Glacier National Park Monday afternoon.

According to a press release from the National Park Service, Neal Peckens and Jason Hiser were reported as missing since Friday when they failed to board their return flight to the East Coast.

The men are reportedly in good condition with no injuries. They were flown out of the backcountry and met family members anxiously awaiting their return.

Peckens and Hiser were hiking on the east side of the park near Two Medicine. Park rangers started the search when family members reported them as missing.

Search and rescue crews encountered winter weather conditions and up to 18 inches of snow on trails, snow drifts, limited visibility and very windy conditions.

Organizations assisting Glacier National Park with the search include Flathead County Sheriff’s…

UN urges talk, not sanctions, against anti-gay laws

76 CRIMES

The United Nations wants countries to be persuaded to repeal anti-gay laws, but doesn’t want them to be forced to do so through sanctions.

Rolando Gomez, spokesman for the U.N.’s Human Rights Council, made that statement in response to a question about Malawi, which has been threatened with a cut-off of some international aid because of its laws against same-sex sexual activity. As reported in The Daily Times in Malawi, he said:

“It is not the wish of U.N. to have donors come up with sanctions towards different countries as an enforcement measure towards human rights adherences. As UN we believe in dialogue, consultation and negotiation. We provide space because some countries have genuine arguments depending on what they believe in.

“This is why as UN we only advise and come up with our recommendations and resolutions, this is how far we can go.”

In contrast, Prime Minister David Cameron…

Passenger plane finds distressed yacht with passenger’s binoculars

Wales Air Forum

By Sophie Griffiths

An Air Canada passenger plane which was bound for Sydney helped locate a yacht which was in distress in waters between Australia and New Zealand.

The flight was diverted by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority after it spotted an emergency beacon activated in the Tasman Sea.

Pilots reportedly descended to 1,800m altitude and used a passenger’s binoculars to find the vessel, the BBC said.

The boat with its lone sailor, was discovered some 310 miles east of Sydney.

The yachtsman is understood to have been adrift for around one week after losing his mast and running low on fuel. He had left Sydney two weeks earlier.

The Air Canada flight from Vancouver had 270 passengers and 18 crew on board  was diverted after 12 hours into the flight, flying an additional 400km as a result of the diversion, and landing 90 minutes behind schedule.

Zimbabwe police vs. LGBT rights group

76 CRIMES

Police in Zimbabwe say they’re still investigating the group Gays and Lesbians of Zimbabwe, or GALZ, and have refused to return property they seized during a raid on GALZ offices in August.

GALZ attorney Tonderai Bhatasara wrote to police to say that the items  should be returned, because they were not linked to any crime.

About the raid, the Zimbabwean newspaper NewsDay reported:

The police ransacked the GALZ offices in Milton Park and confiscated property, which included computers, compact discs, pamphlets and various documents, on allegations that the organisation was operating without registration as required under Private Voluntary Organisations Act.

In reply to Bhatasara, the  police at Harare Central Police Station said they were keeping the property during an ongoing investigation and wanted to use it in court.

Bhatasara denies that GALZ is in violation of the registration law. At the time of the raid, police also accused GALZ of possessing…

Decriminalize Drug Use, Say Experts After Six-year Study

photo

Alan Travis
Guardian.co.uk

A six-year study of Britain’s drug laws by leading scientists, police officers, academics and experts has concluded it is time to introduce decriminalisation.

The report by the UK Drug Policy Commission (UKDPC), an independent advisory body, says possession of small amounts of controlled drugs should no longer be a criminal offence and concludes the move will not lead to a significant increase in use.

The experts say the criminal sanctions imposed on the 42,000 people sentenced each year for possession of all drugs – and the 160,000 given cannabis warnings – should be replaced with simple civil penalties such as a fine, attendance at a drug awareness session or a referral to a drug treatment programme.

Ukraine vote on ‘gay propaganda’ likely tomorrow

76 CRIMES

Tomorrow the Ukrainian parliament may consider — and give its final approval — to a bill to ban “gay propaganda,” which includes any positive depiction of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

If passed, it would apply to any statement that being gay is acceptable, whether that appears in a newspaper editorial, in a speech, at a pride parade or a film such as “Brokeback Mountain,” the bill’s backers say.  It might also prohibit public displays of kissing, hand-holding and other public displays of affection by single-sex couples.

The bill, if passed by parliament and signed by Ukraine President Viktor Yanukovych, would impose fines on first-time offenders and provide up to five years in prison for repeat offenders.

The bill is strongly opposed by human rights groups. Officials at the European Parliament not only oppose it, but also say that a recent relaxation of visa requirements between Ukraine and European…

DARPA floating tank-like CAAT vehicle

Technology Buzz

So the year is 2015, and you’re in a serious disaster – one that requires the immediate provision of food, water, medical care, and shelter for a hundred thousand people. In other words, not something that a few airlifts will handle. If there is navigable water anywhere nearby, you could be saved by a future version of one of DARPA’s new toys: the Captive Air Amphibious Transporter (CAAT).

Check out the video [YouTube]

Part of DARPA’s Tactically Expandable Maritime Platform (TEMP) program, CAAT is a tool for enabling rapidly organized and executed ship-to-shore operations. In essence, the concept is to load standard shipping containers on a vehicle that operates close to shore which is equipped with an amphibious drive. CAAT is designed to provide a flexible and modular capability for solving supply problems cropping up during unconventional warfare scenarios, and also to assist during humanitarian disasters.

NASA is funding Bi-directional flying wing design

The supersonic bi-directional flying wing (SBiDir-FW) aircraft in high-speed configuration...

The supersonic bi-directional flying wing (SBiDir-FW) aircraft in high-speed configuration (Image: University of Miami)A team that has created a supersonic jet design resembling a flying shuriken has been awarded a US$100, 000 grant from NASA’s Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC) program to continue development of the aircraft. Aside from looking suitably futuristic, the concept plane’s four-pointed star design serves a practical purpose. By rotating in mid air, the plane can transition between broad-wing subsonic and shorter wingspan supersonic configurations.

Aircraft design is usually a compromise between subsonic and supersonic performance. At low speeds, broad wings provide more lift and help minimize takeoff distance, while swept back wings with a smaller profile enhance performance at high speeds. Variable-sweep wing (or swing wing) aircraft, such as the F-14 Tomcat and B-1 Lancer, get around this with wings that are spread broadly at takeoff and low speeds and can be swept back while in…

Search & Rescue Dog Needs Donations For Cancer Treatment

WCCO | CBS Minnesota

[worldnow id=7821108 width=450 height=375 type=video]

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Gage is a search and rescue dog. His job is finding missing people. But now Gage needs to be rescued from cancer and he’s counting on lots of people for help.

Gage and his owner, veterinarian Sarah Garfunkel, also spent a year in Iraq. He’s been trained as a search dog from the age of six months.

“What he has is what’s called a T-cell lymphoma. Lymphoma in dogs is very treatable with chemotherapy, and the chances for several years of remission is actually decent,” said veterinarian Jennifer Bouthilet.

But the treatment for Gage will cost a lot. So, his organization, K9 Emergency Response Teams has organized a chip-in page on Facebook. Gage is only 5 years old.

“That’s why we’re so urgently wanting to treat him, because he’s a very, very talented dog and should have a lot of years of…
