The prototype came in for a landing at an angle before exploded at what appeared to be touchdown.Despite the shaky landing Elon Musk celebrated the test launch in a series of Tweets saying “Mars, here we come!!” and commenting on what did go write in the launch Tweeting “Successful ascent, switchover to header tanks & precise flap control to landing point!” RELATEDTOPICScenter_img NASA astronauts headed to ISS after successful Cape Canaveral launch April 24, 2021 4 astronauts returned to Earth in rare SpaceX night splashdown May 3, 2021 Advertisement AdvertisementTags: explosionspacex SpaceX rocket launching from Cape Canaveral today June 17, 2021last_img read more

June 8, 2021 The other reason for this confusion is because of an operational change that the National Hurricane Center (NHC) decided to make starting this season. Typically, the NHC begins releasing Tropical Weather Outlooks (TWOs) on June 1, the first day of the Atlantic hurricane season.  These outlooks provide a look ahead regarding potential development across the tropics. Feltgen stated this change was made, “In order to provide more consistent information on the potential for late May and early June systems… which is when routine Tropical Weather Outlooks also begin for the eastern Pacific basin.”  The reasoning for this change is likely due to the fact that 36 “special” Tropical Weather Outlooks were issued prior to the old June 1 benchmark during the historic season in 2020.Bottom line, the idea of moving the official start for the season is a topic of discussion in the weather community, and nothing more. No decisions on the matter will be made this year, especially before the start of this season.  If you live in an area impacted by tropical weather, continue to have preparedness kits and evacuation plans ready for you and your family.  At the end of the day, tropical weather will form when conditions allow, not when the calendar says. Rumors spread across social media Friday afternoon, claiming that the National Hurricane Center was thinking of moving the start date of the Atlantic hurricane season from June 1 to May 15.  The articles cited two reasons for this speculation.The first was the agenda from an annual meeting of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) happening in March. The focus of this meeting is to look back on the previous year’s season to determine which names should be retired from the hurricane list and to assess any changes that need to be made operationally.  One of the topics up for consideration at this year’s meeting will be whether or not to move the start of the Atlantic hurricane season earlier by two weeks. However, it is merely a discussion and no decision will be made one way or the other. Hurricane season is here. Do you know how to safely use a generator? June 16, 2021 Advertisement Here’s what should be in your pet safety hurricane checklist June 15, 2021 AdvertisementDennis Feltgen, Communications & Public Affairs Officer for NOAA, also mentioned that this was a topic for discussion in December during the NOAA Hurricane Conference. He said that it was decided during this conference, to assemble a team in 2021 including members of the National Weather Service and National Hurricane Center to examine the idea.  “Considerations for the team would include a determination of a quantitative threshold for adding or removing dates from the official Atlantic hurricane season,” Feltgen said. “Then, an examination would need to take place regarding the need for, and potential ramifications of, potentially moving the beginning of the hurricane season to May 15.”   This team is expected to meet sometime in the Spring, but will not reach a decision on the matter before the start of this season.last_img read more

The North Korean source stated that “The United States has no evidence, just like it had no evidence Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.” The source told Reuters that, “If the United States does not resolve it, North Korea will have no choice but to announce at the six-party talks that it plans to conduct another [nuclear] test… if the United States does not resolve it [counterfeiting dispute], North Korea would be a ‘sinner’ taking part in the six-party talks … North Korea would have no face and could not be on equal footing with the other parties at the six-party talks.”On 15 September 2005, the US Treasury labeled Banco Delta Asia, Macao, as a “primary money laundering concern” in response to illicit North Korean activities. According to Arms Control Today, a publication by the Arms Control Association, the U.S. believes that Banco Delta Asia provided financial services to North Korean government agencies and front companies involved in drug trafficking, the distribution of counterfeit U.S. currency, and smuggling of counterfeit tobacco products and pharmaceuticals.

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) has re-introduced the Half- Way-Tree to Seaview Gardens bus route. The route, which was traversed by the Jamaica Omnibus Service (JOS) in the eighties, was discontinued because of violence within the area.According to Communications Manager at the Ministry of Transport and Works, Reginald Allen, the JUTC has been assessing areas where service could be extended and the Seaview Gardens route was chosen. “It’s out of recognition of a need [and] it was recognized that the Seaview Gardens area is a large dormitory community, where a lot of people leave to go to work and school in the mornings and evenings,” he explained.Mr. Allen informed that currently, to get to Half-Way-Tree, residents have to take two illegal taxis – one to Three Miles and another from there to Half-Way Tree – but with the re-introduction of bus service, commuters will now pay one fare to get straight to Half-Way-Tree. “There is a bus that carries commuters from Seaview to downtown but there was no route prior to this one that carried people from Seaview to Half-Way-Tree,” he informed.This new route will be traversed by the number 50 bus at a cost of $50 to passengers. The bus will run from 4:30 am to 9:30 am and resume between1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. and go up to 8:00 p.m. The timeframe, Mr. Allen said, will be assessed over time to determine any adjustments.As it relates to concerns about a recurring flare-up of violence within the area, Mr. Allen said that a lot has changed over time and so has Seaview Gardens. “Yes, there is still violence, but in the old days, you had more violence. People view things differently and you find that access to these communities is much more open now than they have been in the past,” he said, adding, “we have no problems. The waters have been tried and tested and in fact, the people are so very receptive. They see the need for the service.”The Communications Manager noted that the roads in the community were in fairly good condition. “There is a small part of the road that is in a fairly bad condition and things will be done to address it [but] for the most part, the road is good,” he assured.

first_imgWFP feeds more than one million in Tigray, but needs support to reach more The United NationsMore than one million people in two areas of the war-ravaged Tigray region in Ethiopia have received emergency food assistance since distributions began in March, the World Food Programme (WFP) reported on Tuesday.WFP has been supporting people in the Northwestern and Southern zones affected by the conflict between Ethiopian Government forces and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), which began in November.Providing hunger relief Aster Beyene, a 43-year-old mother of seven, this week became the one millionth person to collect wheat, split peas and vegetable oil from the agency.She lost her home and her crops two months ago in the fighting.“Up until now I have relied on what little food I can get from my neighbours. At least now we have some relief from the hunger we have been suffering”, said Ms. Beyene, who is from Adi Millen, a remote rural village some 50 kilometres from the town of Shire in Northwestern zone.Scaling up On Monday, WFP provided food aid to the 4,500 villagers there, closing out the first round of distributions which will be carried out every six weeks in Tigray. Operations will be scaled-up to reach 2.1 million people.WFP is seeking $203 million to continue to ramp up response across the region, where some 5.2 million people, or more than 90 per cent of the population, needs emergency food assistance.The agency continues to lead emergency nutrition response to children and pregnant or nursing women, though access remains the main challenge, particularly in rural areas.WFP has also delivered some 40,000 metric tons of food for the Government and partners to Tigray, and has transported more than 20,000 metric tons for the National Disaster Risk Management Commission within the region.No end to child violations: UNICEF Nearly seven months into the war, the magnitude of child rights violations taking place across Tigray shows no sign of abating, the head of the UN Children’s Fund, UNICEF, said in a statement on Tuesday.“Over 6,000 unaccompanied or separated children have so far been identified and registered for protection and assistance. We fear there are many more children who need support in areas that we are unable to reach due to insecurity or access restrictions imposed by parties to the conflict”, said Henrietta Fore, the UNICEF Executive Director.She added that family tracing and reunification have been constrained by limits in telecommunications, social workers, and access across lines of control.Sexual violence, recruitment fears Women and girls in Tigray are still being subjected to what Ms. Fore described as “appalling acts of sexual violence”.Although UNICEF has helped some 540 survivors since November, “the overall lack of security, and fear of reprisals, leave untold numbers unable to receive the care and services they urgently need,” she said. At the same time, adolescent boys report they fear recruitment and being used in the hostilities.The fighting has displaced at least 1.6 million people, including more than 720,000 children, according to Ms. Fore, who said the conditions at sites hosting them, as well as refugee camps, are overcrowded, unsanitary and unsafe.Protect children from abuse Meanwhile, much of Tigray remains inaccessible to humanitarian workers.“Since the beginning of April, at least 31 missions by mobile health, nutrition and water teams supported by UNICEF and partners have been blocked, either due to insecurity or because they were harassed and denied passage,” Ms Fore said.UNICEF is adamant that children are paying a terrible price for the conflict. The agency has called on the warring sides to respect their obligation to enable access to civilians in need, especially children.“Above all, we call on all parties to do everything in their power to protect children from violence, exploitation and abuse, and to prevent separation from their parents or primary caregivers”, Ms Fore added. /UN News Release.
