“Without a stable Kosovo, there is no stability in the Balkans,” Hungarian Foreign Minister Kinga Göncz said in her address today, urging the ongoing presence of the international community based on the Security Council resolution from 1999 that established the UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK). “We also remain committed to contributing to the stability of Kosovo through the EULEX [the European Union Rule of Law Mission], KFOR [the NATO-led Kosovo Force] and an international civilian office as part of the international presence,” she added. Ms. Göncz stressed that the resolution of the Kosovo Assembly and its new constitution must fully commit Kosovo to democracy, the rule of law, the protection of Serbs and other minority communities, and the protection of cultural and religious heritage. Czech Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg told the Assembly today that the UN, the EU and NATO need to continue to cooperate in Kosovo, which has a majority ethnic Albanian population, to benefit of the wider Balkans as a whole. “Let me assure you that both democratic and prosperous Serbia and Kosovo do have a place in the European family and that the Czech Republic is ready to lend them a helping hand,” he said. Mr. Schwarzenberg also welcomed the recent arrest and transfer of Radovan Karadžić, the former Bosnian Serb leader facing war crimes charges, to the UN-founded International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague. Calling it “a promising sign of cooperation of the new Serbian Government with the international community,” he urged the Security Council to provide sufficient time for the ICTY to complete its work. 27 September 2008The United Nations needs to play a continuing role in Kosovo – which declared its independence from Serbia in February – to ensure that there is stability across the Balkans, top officials from two European countries told the General Assembly’s annual high-level debate today.
A group of Indian fishermen who were set free yesterday, were handed over to the coast guard today.The coast guard said that the 37 Indian fishermen were to be handed over to the Indian coast guard today. The Indians were freed following talks President Maithripala Sirisena had with a group of Indian fishermen last week.Sirisena had told the Indians he wants the fishermen issue between India and Sri Lanka to be resolved through negotiations.

“I condemn the killing of Taing Try,” said Director-General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Irina Bokova. She noted that people and communities must be informed and require information from diverse channels, so they can make important personal and professional choices. “This is why the work of journalists like Taing Try is so essential and why it is so important that those responsible for his murder are brought to justice,” Ms. Bokova added. Mr. Try – a freelance reporter for local newspapers and a member of the journalist association “Khmer Bracheathibtey” or Khmer Democracy – was killed on 12 October in Kratie province.His name will be added to UNESCO’s dedicated webpage for journalists killed while on duty.He is believed to be one of several journalists killed in recent years while reported on illegal logging in the province, according to media sources.

Credit: Lantern file photoFor the first time since 2015, the Ohio State men’s volleyball team lost in an opponent’s home gym. In Tuesday’s showdown between the No. 1 Buckeyes and No. 13 Penn State, it was the Nittany Lions who had the last laugh.In five sets, Penn State topped OSU. After 11 unforced errors by the Buckeyes in the first set, it was a constant uphill battle for the Scarlet and Gray.After closing out the first set 25-21, Penn State was pushed back by OSU, as the Buckeyes leaned on senior setter Christy Blough, who assisted on 14 kills and picked up one of his own. In the end, OSU dominated the set 25-14.However, the Nittany Lions regained all the momentum, stunning the Buckeyes with a 25-15 tally at the end of the third set. OSU battled back and won the fourth with a 25-22, and forcing a fifth set.A short scoring streak at the end of the final frame by Penn State ultimately pushed the Nittany Lions ahead, clinching their 15th win of the season. After 20-straight road wins, Penn State proved to be too much.OSU returns to Columbus for a homestand against McKendree University on March 31 and April 2, with both games set for 7 p.m.

EuroChem Group, a leading global fertilizer company headquartered in Switzerland, has selected Veolia Water Technologies’ proven HPD® crystallization technology for its VolgaKaliy mine expansion project in Russia’s Volgograd region. The mine is scheduled to begin commercial operations in 2018, and the expansion, of which Veolia’s crystallization project is part, is scheduled to start up in 2021.The HPD PIC™ crystallizer system will be used for the production of 2 Mt/y of high purity (98.5%) potassium chloride fertilizer from brine produced from conventionally mined sylvinite ore. The major process equipment provided by Veolia will include multiple HPD PIC crystallizers, recirculation and transfer pumps, vapor condensers and centrifuges. The Veolia system has been designed for EuroChem such that process heat will be optimally reused to maximize the temperature of the spent brine back to the ore leaching process. A primary reason why EuroChem chose Veolia was the latter’s commitment to provide process development and process optimization services to the project at a very early stage. Through this early participation with EuroChem, Veolia was able to systematically evaluate multiple design variations, resulting in a custom engineered system specifically suited to meet EuroChem’s production, equipment layout, and operational needs, all while optimizing the cost effectiveness of the system.Clark Bailey, Head of Mining at EuroChem, commented: “With their proven experience and talented team, EuroChem is pleased to be working with such a strong partner as Veolia. The expansion phase of our VolgaKaliy project will increase the plant’s capacity to 4.3 Mt/y of potassium in grades suitable for both agricultural and industrial applications to better diversify our portfolio and markets. Our first phase continues to be on track to begin production in mid-2018.”“Veolia designs and implements solutions aimed at improving access to resources while at the same time protecting and renewing those same resources. With the experience from more than 1,200 successful installations for industrial evaporation and crystallization and over 50 references in the fertilizer market, we were able to offer a custom-built system that offers the flexibility to meet a wide range of production requirements. We are proud to partner with EuroChem on this prestigious project,” stated Klaus Andersen, CEO of Veolia Water Technologies Inc.EuroChem is vertically integrated with activities spanning mining and hydrocarbons extraction to fertilizer production, logistics, and distribution. It is currently developing two sizeable potash deposits in Russia with its VolgaKaliy and Usolskiy potash greenfield projects.

Les auteurs des peintures rupestres du Paléolithique étaient-ils sous hallucinogènes ?Des chercheurs de l’Université de Tokyo suggèrent que les hommes préhistoriques décoraient les parois des grottes lors de rituels incluant la prise de substances psychotropes, lesquelles leur suggéraient certaines des figures qu’ils représentaient.Grilles, damiers, ‘toiles d’araignée’, tunnels, cônes, spirales… : certains éléments retrouvés dans les peintures rupestres du monde entier se ressemblent grandement. D’après une idée largement répandue, c’est parce qu’ils traduisent la façon dont le cerveau des hommes du Paléolithique commençait à apprendre à traiter l’image. Et si ce n’était pas le cas ? Si ces éléments provenaient d’un autre facteur commun à tous les auteurs des peintures ?C’est l’étonnant thèse aujourd’hui soutenue par Tom Froese, Alexander Woodward et Takashi Ikegami, de l’Université de Tokyo : selon eux, si les éléments se ressemblent autant, c’est parce que les artistes préhistoriques consommaient des plantes hallucinogènes imposant à leur esprit certaines visions abstraites qu’ils représentaient ensuite. Pour en arriver là, ces chercheurs se sont penchés sur les études concernant des rituels existant chez plusieurs cultures actuelles et associant création artistique et prise d’hallucinogènes. Ils se sont également appuyés sur des résultats de tests (réalisés par d’autres chercheurs) qui montrent que le cerveau humain sous psychotropes ‘voit’ des figures géométriques ressemblant à la structure du cerveau (“instabilités de Turing”). Ces modèles graphiques ont ensuite été comparés à ceux de l’art pariétal préhistorique et plusieurs éléments ont semblé correspondre.Des motifs chargés de signification À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?”Quand ces motifs visuels sont vus pendant les états altérés de la conscience, ils sont directement ressentis comme très chargés de signification […] à utiliser dans les rituels”, ont expliqué les auteurs cités par le Daily Mail. “La prévalence de certains motifs géométriques dans la culture matérielle symbolique de nombreuses cultures préhistoriques […] s’explique en termes de contenu caractéristique de l’expérience hallucinatoire biologiquement déterminée”, ont-il ajouté les auteurs.Néanmoins, substance hallucinogène ou non, ceci n’explique pas pourquoi ces motifs étaient à ce point chargés de sens dans des cultures géographiquement séparées et qui n’avaient pas de contact les unes avec les autres. “Bien entendu, il reste à expliquer pourquoi ces motifs particuliers étaient autant considérés par les artistes et comment ces personnes sont devenues des artistes capables d’expression symbolique”, ont-ils ainsi conclu.Le 16 juillet 2013 à 18:55 • Maxime Lambert
Corrugated packaging employees are to take industrial action in a dispute over pay.Staff based at packaging factories operated by DS Smith, Saica and Smurfit Kappa have voted to reject a proposed 2% pay rise. Industrial action was approved by members via a ballot vote.Around 2,500 members of the GMB and Unite trade unions will take part in the industrial action, which will include an overtime ban from Saturday 26 November 2016 and a day of strike action on Monday 28 November 2016.Stuart Fegan, national officer at GMB, said: “Our members are clearly fed up of seeing their employers make increasing profits in this sector while their wages fall behind in real terms. We urge the employers to get back around the negotiating table and make an offer to our members in respect of their pay claim, which recognises the profits these [organisations] are making and the contribution of our members towards those profits.”Ian Tonks, national officer at Unite, added: “At no time during our meetings with the [organisations] did they raise the [issue of] affordability. Clearly these are profitable [organisations] and our members recognise their contribution towards that profitability and their efforts need rewarding.”A spokesperson for the Confederation of Paper Industries (CPI), which has been involved with the negotiations, said: “The [CPI] is disappointed with the result of the ballot for industrial action. The industry believes that its pay offer of 2% is fair and reasonable and reflective of the sector performance. The offer is in line with the median settlement level, which is currently being realised in the manufacturing sector, and it is also above inflation.“The [CPI] is committed to supporting collective bargaining within the Corrugated National Agreement. The industry has put forward a good offer and we hope that a speedy resolution to the current situation can be reached.”
A Moulvibazar court has ordered exhuming the body of a Sylhet Agricultural University (SAU) student, who was killed after being pushed off a bus last month, reports UNB.Additional chief judicial magistrate Md Bahauddin Kazi issued the order on Wednesday.The body of Wasim Afnan, 22, a final-year biotechnology and genetic engineering student, was buried without autopsy.According to the statement, 11 SAU students boarded a Sylhet-bound bus of ‘Udar Paribahan’ at the Toll Plaza in Habiganj on 23 March. They got down at Sherpur and had an altercation with the bus helper over fare.The helper pushed Wasim when he was getting off and the driver sped away. The university student was run over by the bus and wounded critically. He was taken to MAG Osmani Medical College Hospital where doctors declared him dead.Wasim’s body was handed over to his family without any autopsy at their request.Bus driver Jewel Ahmed, 26, and his assistant Masuk Mia, 38, have been arrested. Police said they confessed to their crimes during interrogation.

TxDOT’s Karen Othon says they only way they can do it safely is to close the HOV lane underneath.“And in order to build this one cap to hold the supporting bridge structure, it requires equipment. And like I said, the wooden forms underneath the structure to be placed while the concrete cures.”So what does this mean for commuters? Othon says the 290 HOV lane will close after the evening rush on Friday between the Northwest Transit Center and Hempstead Road. They’re hoping to have it back open before the morning commute on Monday April 17.During that closure, Metro will put extra buses on its commuter routes to help avoid delays for riders.As for drivers, Othon says plan your route carefully.“We’re only going to have one signed detour route and police officers out there helping with the signals on the signed detour route. But if there are other ways that people can get around it then most definitely they can take those. Whatever’s easier for them.”The work is part of a larger project to widen 290 between the 610 Loop and FM 2920 near Waller. TxDOT expects to complete the work next year.

The researchers, Stefano Sacanna and David J. Pine of New York University and Laura Rossi of Utrecht University in Utrecht, The Netherlands, have published their study on the magnetic colloids in a recent issue of the Journal of the American Chemical Society.“From the cover of your iPad, which clicks magnetically and snugly fits into place, to kids’ construction toys, magnetic forces precisely direct objects to bind or align with each other,” Sacanna told Phys.org. “We thought of using this ‘invisible’ glue to regulate the way microscopic objects assemble. In particular, because magnetic forces are permanent (do not degrade in time) and virtually unaffected by the local chemical environment, this new binding and recognition mechanism between colloidal building blocks offers a large design freedom to material scientists.”The spherical colloids start out as cubes, each of which contains a tiny piece of magnetic iron oxide. The researchers encapsulated the cubes inside silicon oil droplets so that the cubes are trapped at the interface by surface tension. In this arrangement, one face of the cube extends outside the droplet so that it’s exposed to the surrounding water, forming a surface inhomogeneity that the scientists call a “magnetic patch.” In the final step, the oil droplets are hardened into solid colloids. Fabrication of magnetic colloids, which start as magnetic cubes that are encapsulated into oil droplets. The face of the cube that extends outside the droplet is the magnetic patch.

Play Magnetic colloid particles self-assemble into clusters in the absence of an external magnetic field. Video credit: Sacanna, et al. ©2012 American Chemical Society In these cases, an external magnetic field applied perpendicular to surface of the water containing the particles can change the orientation of the particles’ magnetic dipoles. This change causes the particles to rotate and repel each other, and the clusters to unbind. When a homogenous magnetic field is applied, large clusters of particles with multiple magnetic patches reorganize themselves into linear chains. (Phys.org) — Geomag, the popular children’s toy, contains small metal spheres that can be magnetically connected with a click to build a variety of towers, bridges, and sculptures. In a new study, scientists have done something similar on the microscale: they’ve created a new class of spherical colloids that have tiny magnetic patches embedded beneath their surfaces. In the absence of a magnetic field, the colloidal particles can spontaneously form clusters of controlled size and shape. With the application of an external magnetic field, the clusters can unbind and change their geometry, allowing the structures to reconfigure themselves independent of the chemical conditions of the environment. Various structures made with magnetic colloids: (A) Large particles with a single magnetic patch form dimers, (B) smaller particles with a single magnetic patch form trimers, (C) two particles with a single magnetic patch join with one particle with two magnetic patches, and (D) under an external magnetic field, particles form long structures. Image credit: Sacanna, et al. ©2012 American Chemical Society Journal information: Journal of the American Chemical Society More information: Stefano Sacanna, et al. “Magnetic Click Colloidal Assembly.” Journal of the American Chemical Society. DOI: 10.1021/ja301344n In their experiments, the researchers demonstrated that these new colloidal particles can interact with each other in various ways. Generally, the magnetic attraction between particles has a short range, which is offset by the long-range repulsion of the particles’ electric forces. As a result, the particles only connect when they are already close together. However, the researchers could decrease the particles’ electric repulsion by adding salt to the water, which effectively increases the particles’ magnetic binding energy. As the researchers demonstrated, in the absence of an applied magnetic field, two or three particles in close proximity self-assemble into dimers or trimers. By synthesizing particles with multiple magnetic patches, the researchers could enable larger, more complex structures to self-assemble due to the multiple binding points. The researchers also adapted the inter-particle binding mechanism to bind particles onto magnetically patterned surfaces. Play Magnetic colloid particles form a trimer. Video credit: Sacanna, et al. ©2012 American Chemical Society “Magnetic bonds can form, break and rearrange as many times as we want (again, think about Geomag toys and on how many complex structures you can build with only a few simple elementary units),” Sacanna said. “By applying this principle to colloidal particles, we can envision the creation of colloidal fluids that, upon an external stimulus (for example, the addition of salt), can self-organize into functional materials with microscopic architectures that are enforced by the formation of directional magnetic bonds. The use of external magnetic fields would add the possibility to easily break and reset such architectures. Other than smart reconfigurable materials, these magnetic colloids could find applications as a ‘transporting vehicle’ in drug delivery as the particles can ‘sense’ magnetic fields and autonomously bind on magnetic targets.”In the future, the researchers plan to improve the particles’ control as well as their “intelligence.”“We are currently working on fabricating particles with a higher number of magnetic patches and ultimately we would like to control the orientation of the magnetic dipole in the patch to realize colloids with a controllable ‘valence number,” Sacanna said. “This would allow us to assemble colloidal structures simply by mixing particles in a stoichiometric ratio. Finally, we would like to make our particles even ‘smarter’ by combining our magnetic patches with other classical surface modifications such as DNA coatings, chemical patches, electrostatic charges, etc.” Explore further Geomagnetic storm subsiding This document is subject to copyright.

One potential use is drug delivery, in which a particle and its cargo is delivered to a specific location. An advantage of the magnetic method compared to chemical methods of particle assembly is that magnetic particles are independent of most environmental changes such as temperature, pH, and solvent composition.
