Armed with a spear and shirtless, a self-proclaimed “shaman” and adherent to the QAnon nebula conspiracy theories had participated in the invasion of Congress with hundreds of supporters of Donald Trump, to prevent elected officials from validating the victory of the Democrat Joe Biden in the presidential election.

With his buffalo horned headdress one of the faces of the January 6 attack, this pro-Trump conspiratorial activist was sentenced, Wednesday, November 17, to nearly three and a half years in prison by a Washington court, a sentence lighter than that claimed by the prosecution. Jacob Chansley, 34, “Has become the very image” of this day of chaos which had shaken the American democracy, underlined the judge Royce Lamberth by pronouncing a sentence of forty-one months of imprisonment. “What you have done is terrible”, he added, while taking into account the “Remorse” of the accused.

Jacob Chansley walked into the Senate Chamber, sat in the chair reserved for Vice President Mike Pence and left a note saying: “It’s only a matter of time, justice is coming! “.

The man from Phoenix, Arizona, was arrested a few days after the incident and taken into custody. In September, he pleaded guilty to obstructing formal proceedings in federal court in Washington. The prosecution called for fifty-one months in prison on November 10, which would have been the heaviest sentence handed down against a participant in the January 6 assault, even though the charges of violence were dropped.

“Personality disorders”

This severe sentence “Will be enough to deter forever any criminal act of this kind”, explained, on Wednesday, prosecutor Kimberly Paschall. “Justice will not stand idly by as you attack the peaceful transfer of power. “ To explain its severity, she recalled that Jacob Chansley had posted “Vitriolic messages” on social networks against “Corrupt politicians and traitors in government”, well before the events of January 6. “ If the accused had been peaceful, he would not be here today ”, she said. “A crowd storming the Capitol with the aim of disrupting the activities of parliamentarians is not peaceful, it is a criminal obstruction”, she explained.

Speaking at length to the judge, Jacob Chansley claimed to be “Not a dangerous criminal” but suffer from “Personality disorders” that he wants to treat to become a “Better man”. “I am not a violent man, nor an insurgent and certainly not a terrorist. I’m just a good man who broke the law ”, he explained, assuring to believe “In liberty, law and order, and responsibility”. Placed in solitary confinement in prison, he recounted having had time to look at himself in a mirror to say to himself: “Dude, you really screwed up.” Before his judgment, his lawyer, Albert Watkins, had assured that Jacob Chansley had since repudiated the QAnon movement and had said ” disappointed “ par Donald Trump.

A total of 664 people were charged to varying degrees with their participation in the deadly assault, according to the Extremism Research Program at George Washington University.

Five people died during or shortly after the attack, including a police officer and a female protester killed by an officer inside the building. In addition, two police officers committed suicide in the days and weeks that followed, without a direct link having been established.

In addition to the large resources that suddenly become available to finance new and existing nature (such as De Peel) that still need to be adapted, the formation decisions regarding the nature and reduction policy for the number of animals continue to affect the food and agricultural complex.

From CU leader Gert-Jan Segers left in the train draft formation agreement it turned out that the CDA and VVD, the conservative parties in the intended new government coalition, have in any case agreed to an amount of 14-19 billion on top of resources already allocated by the outgoing cabinet. Earlier this week it reported General Newspaper that the amount would now have risen to 20-30 billion euros by 2030. The Netherlands appears to take its new nature policy extremely seriously, in any case financially.

The far-reaching policy will cause effects in the market whose contours can be sketched, but the precise dynamics with which they will take place are not yet clear.

Agriculture
The manure dossier, which in the past gave rise to scandals due to the dumping of surpluses, changes in a scenario of significant shrinkage of all animal sectors (dairy farming -40%, pigs and poultry up to -50%) in a situation of shortages. Dutch arable farmers would then have to buy manure abroad. However, there is already a shortage there, so that more use of fertilizers is an obvious choice.

Even in a milder scenario in which more pig and chicken manure remains available, there will still be a manure shortage, although a small surplus of phosphate remains.

The effects of the two scenarios have been requested by the government calculated by the Netherlands Center for Manure Valuation (NCM).

Without precision fertilization, in addition to livestock farming, arable farming in the Netherlands will also shrink significantly due to declining yields on too expensive land

According to director Jan Roefs of NCM, mechanical fertilizer production by processing animal manure should be considered in both the first and second scenarios. Due to the needs of intensive Dutch open field cultivation, the correct composition of nutrients in fertilizers is essential. That is why it is important to collect, factory crack and reconstitute animal poo and pee into nutrients that are tailored to the specific needs of crops. This costs fossil energy either directly or indirectly. This goes against the ambitions of the EU and the Netherlands, which want to get rid of manure produced using fossil energy. However, Roefs warns against the idea that the reduced Dutch livestock farming sector provides immediately usable ‘beautiful ripe manure’ – as D66 MP Tjeerd de Groot calls it – for all forms of vegetable cultivation. The high productivity that Dutch arable farmers strive for requires tailor-made fertilization. Without such precision fertilization, in addition to livestock farming, arable farming in the Netherlands will also shrink significantly due to declining yields on too expensive land.

At the moment, farmers from nearby countries still buy animal manure in bulk from Dutch farmers because of the surpluses in our country. For a number of years, French farmers have surpassed the Germans as the main buyers of Dutch animal manure. The reason for this is that the sandy soils in the nearest German areas have had to deal with stricter environmental measures against leaching of fertilizers via soil and groundwater. As a result, Dutch manure was released, which northern French arable farmers and open field horticulturists liked to use to improve their soils and to use less fertilizer. According to Roefs, the prices of animal manure in France and Germany will increase locally for current buyers of Dutch manure. In the triangular relationship between France, Germany and the Netherlands, he does not expect any major price effects at the macro level. It is not easy to predict how the fertilizer market will develop in the new shortage situation in the Netherlands, because traders regulate the fertilizer flows so that the traded volumes and their destination are not transparent. It is probable that in the Netherlands animal manure from a cost item for livestock farmers become a source of income again.

Presumably, the use of fertilizers (which the Netherlands wanted to get rid of) will increase. In the event of high gas prices or the desire to make fertilizer (which for its nitrogen component depends on an energy-intensive production process) only with green hydrogen, a further increase in the price of fertilizer will have to be taken into account. Based on sound calculations, Prof. Machiel Mulder that green hydrogen will remain scarce for the foreseeable future because of the excessively high production costs.

The members of the FrieslandCampina cooperative, who also own the FrielsandCampina factories, may have been so confused for some time that sensible regrouping and reorganization will prove difficult.

Reorganize dairy farmers?
Wageningen UR calculated the employment effect and the contraction of the gross domestic product (GDP) of the nature policy in the dairy and slaughter sectors. The share of the dairy chain in the national economy is estimated to fall from 1.1 to 0.8% of GDP. The dairy chain and intensive livestock farming together still account for 1.8% of GDP. With the smaller livestock size, their contribution will shrink to 1.4% of GDP. Dutch dairy processors will produce an estimated 4.2 million tons of milk (out of 14 million that Dutch farmers produce in total). This loss creates overcapacity among the processors, with the risk that factories will have to be closed down and written off. Especially for FrieslandCampina (by far the largest processor in the Netherlands with three quarters of the Dutch milk flow), which has been struggling for years with bad results and proves to be difficult to manage due to the tense relationship between management, cooperative board and farmer members, this can prove problematic. However, it can also be an advantage because FrieslandCampina can slim down as a result of the pressure that has arisen and thus become a healthier company. At home, the cooperative pays a high milk price to too many of its members; the company must take in more milk than it can sell in a distinctive and profitable manner. If they can go off, that will benefit the profit and loss account of the factory.

At the moment, Dutch factories buy 560,000 tons of raw milk from abroad. That volume could increase to 2.6 million tons, so that eventually dairy processing in the Netherlands will shrink by 15%. However, that percentage does not include the economic effects for the individual companies. In the worst case, the large block of dairy farmers of the FrieslandCampina cooperative could fall apart. Should that happen, a new market dynamic will arise, but also the challenge of restructuring the cooperative with currently approximately 15,000 members – the largest homogeneous group of farmers in the Netherlands. This must be done in a situation where strong emotions and mistrust are currently strongly dividing the ranks. The members of the FrieslandCampina cooperative, who also own the FrieslandCampina factories, may have been so confused for some time that sensible regrouping and reorganization will prove difficult. The behavior of the farmers can therefore become a threat to the dairy processor and multinational Royal FrieslandCampina and lead to smaller new commercial companies that restart the factories.

Uctít památku 17. listopadu přišla jako první z politiků trojice Andrej Babiš, Alena Schillerová a Karel Havlíček. „Ochranka řekla, že na nás budou házet vajíčka. Proto jsme přišli brzo,“ vysvětlil premiér Andrej Babiš důvod návštěvy památníku už v půl sedmé ráno.

Babiš na svém Facebooku vyjádřil úžas nad tím, v co se výročí sametové revoluce proměnilo. „Jako by tenhle náš nejdůležitější svátek svobody a demokracie nepatřil všem, ale jen těm, kteří si ho násilím zprivatizovali,“ reagoval premiér v demisi na atmosféru, která u památníku panovala už brzy ráno. 

„S kolegy Alenou Schillerovou a Karlem Havlíčkem jsme položili věnec a zapálili svíčky, a byl to pro nás i pres křik a hrozby velký a slavnostní moment,“ sdělil Babiš. 

„Sametová revoluce přinesla před 32 lety největší hodnoty, které máme. Svobodu slova, svobodu cestování, svobodné volby, možnost podnikat. Děkuju. Přeju vám všem krásný svátek, krásný 17. listopad,“ napsal Babiš 

Ruský švábe, křičela Národní na muže z Hradu. Babiš přišel brzy, bál se útoku

Podle Aleny Schillerové změnily události sametové revoluce životy tehdejší generaci i těm budoucím. „Dnes jsme si na Národní třídě u pamětní desky připomněli, jak náročná byla cesta ke svobodě a demokracii. Ke svobodě ohleduplné a nesobecké, k demokracii zodpovědné a solidární. V péči o tyto hodnoty nesmíme přestávat,“ napsala na svém Twitteru končící ministryně financí.

Ministryně práce a sociálních věcí v demisi Jana Maláčová označila
17. listopad za výjimečný den, který ukázal, že nic není samozřejmého. „My sociální demokraté si chodíme tento den připomínat každoročně. Každá hodnota, která je pro nás klíčová, se musí udržovat, musíme za ní bojovat,“ řekla na Národní třídě Maláčová. 

„Boj proti útlaku a touha po svobodě a demokracii. To jsou bezesporu společné jmenovatele 17. listopadu 1939 a 1989,“ připomněl na svém Twitteru 17. listopad odstupující ministr školství Robert Plaga a zdůraznil, že obě data jsou neodmyslitelně spjata se studenty. „Jejich odvahou a odhodláním něco změnit a něčemu dobrému pomoci. Díky za to,“ dodal. 

„Dnes to prožívám se zvláštní radostí. Je to poprvé, kdy nemáme v parlamentu komunisty, což byl stín 17. listopadu.“

Petr Fiala možný budoucí premiér

Budoucí premiér Petr Fiala označil 17. listopad za nejhezčí svátek. „Spousta lidí má možnost uskutečnovat své sny, žít ve svobodě. Toho si musíme každý den vážit. Je krásné, že si to připomínáme,“ řekl na Národní třídě Fiala a dodal, že letošní svátek si připomíná se zvláštní radostí, protože je to poprvé, kdy v parlamentu nejsou komunisté. 

„Je to svátek mladých lidí, protože to byli právě studenti, kteří se v letech 1939 a 1989 postavili těm hrozným režimům,“ vyjádřil se nastupující premiér.

Lidovecký předseda Marian Jurečka prohlásil, že by se lidé měli aktivně zajímat o to, co se děje ve společnosti. V tíživých dobách krize se společnost začíná rozdělovat nebo její část radikalizovat. Je pak především na politicích, aby to zmírnili a vytvářeli pozitivní, kulturní a komunikační atmosféru.

„Dnešní den patří všem, kteří se před 32 lety zasloužili o návrat demokracie a svobody do Československa. Jen díky Vám dnes můžem,“ napsala předsedkyně TOP 09 Markéta Pekarová Adamová na Twitteru. Upozornila na to, že demokracie vyžaduje odpovědnost, a svoboda je křehká. „Na nás všech je hodnoty 17. listopadu hájit a předávat dalším generacím,“ napsala na závěr Pekarová.

Na absenci komunistů v parlamentu odkázal i předseda hnutí STAN Vít Rakušan. „Letošní listopad je unikátní. Poprvé ho slavíme bez komunistů v parlamentu,“ řekl Rakušan. „Jedna éra skončila, voliči rozhodli tak, že se otevírá nová kapitola,“ pokračoval u památníku 17. listopadu.

Předseda hnutí STAN také zavzpomínal na revoluci v roce 1989, kdy mu bylo 11 let. „Je to událost, kterou už mám v hlavě. Dětský mozek je úžasný v tom, že zapomíná nedůležité momenty, ale zachovává ty důležité, jako třeba brečící babičku, radující se rodiče, stávkující sourozence na gymnáziu a podobně,“ popsal Rakušan. 

Předseda Pirátů Ivan Bartoš novinářům řekl, že 17. listopad je pro něj jak inspirativně, tak emočně velmi silný zážitek. Za důležitou pro demokracii považuje vzdělanou a informovanou společnost, která dokáže čelit nástrahám minulým, ale i budoucím. S tímto datem má spojenou i další důležitou životní událost – před šesti lety se oženil s manželkou Lydií.

Tomio Okamura popsal Den boje za svobodu a demokracii jako zápas lidí za svá práva, který ještě neskončil a ani neskončí. „Svoboda by měla být nástrojem spravedlnosti. To dnes mnozí naši občané necítí, a naopak mají pocit, že se spravedlnosti ve své zemi nemohou dovolat, “ vyjádřil se předseda SPD na svém Twitteru.

Uctít památku 17. listopadu přišla jako první z politiků trojice Andrej Babiš, Alena Schillerová a Karel Havlíček. „Ochranka řekla, že na nás budou házet vajíčka. Proto jsme přišli brzo,“ vysvětlil premiér Andrej Babiš důvod návštěvy památníku už v půl sedmé ráno.

Babiš na svém Facebooku vyjádřil úžas nad tím, v co se výročí sametové revoluce proměnilo. „Jako by tenhle náš nejdůležitější svátek svobody a demokracie nepatřil všem, ale jen těm, kteří si ho násilím zprivatizovali,“ reagoval premiér v demisi na atmosféru, která u památníku panovala už brzy ráno. 

„S kolegy Alenou Schillerovou a Karlem Havlíčkem jsme položili věnec a zapálili svíčky, a byl to pro nás i pres křik a hrozby velký a slavnostní moment,“ sdělil Babiš. 

„Sametová revoluce přinesla před 32 lety největší hodnoty, které máme. Svobodu slova, svobodu cestování, svobodné volby, možnost podnikat. Děkuju. Přeju vám všem krásný svátek, krásný 17. listopad,“ napsal Babiš 

Ruský švábe, křičela Národní na muže z Hradu. Babiš přišel brzy, bál se útoku

Podle Aleny Schillerové změnily události sametové revoluce životy tehdejší generaci i těm budoucím. „Dnes jsme si na Národní třídě u pamětní desky připomněli, jak náročná byla cesta ke svobodě a demokracii. Ke svobodě ohleduplné a nesobecké, k demokracii zodpovědné a solidární. V péči o tyto hodnoty nesmíme přestávat,“ napsala na svém Twitteru končící ministryně financí.

Ministryně práce a sociálních věcí v demisi Jana Maláčová označila
17. listopad za výjimečný den, který ukázal, že nic není samozřejmého. „My sociální demokraté si chodíme tento den připomínat každoročně. Každá hodnota, která je pro nás klíčová, se musí udržovat, musíme za ní bojovat,“ řekla na Národní třídě Maláčová. 

„Boj proti útlaku a touha po svobodě a demokracii. To jsou bezesporu společné jmenovatele 17. listopadu 1939 a 1989,“ připomněl na svém Twitteru 17. listopad odstupující ministr školství Robert Plaga a zdůraznil, že obě data jsou neodmyslitelně spjata se studenty. „Jejich odvahou a odhodláním něco změnit a něčemu dobrému pomoci. Díky za to,“ dodal. 

„Dnes to prožívám se zvláštní radostí. Je to poprvé, kdy nemáme v parlamentu komunisty, což byl stín 17. listopadu.“

Petr Fiala možný budoucí premiér

Budoucí premiér Petr Fiala označil 17. listopad za nejhezčí svátek. „Spousta lidí má možnost uskutečnovat své sny, žít ve svobodě. Toho si musíme každý den vážit. Je krásné, že si to připomínáme,“ řekl na Národní třídě Fiala a dodal, že letošní svátek si připomíná se zvláštní radostí, protože je to poprvé, kdy v parlamentu nejsou komunisté. 

„Je to svátek mladých lidí, protože to byli právě studenti, kteří se v letech 1939 a 1989 postavili těm hrozným režimům,“ vyjádřil se nastupující premiér.

Lidovecký předseda Marian Jurečka prohlásil, že by se lidé měli aktivně zajímat o to, co se děje ve společnosti. V tíživých dobách krize se společnost začíná rozdělovat nebo její část radikalizovat. Je pak především na politicích, aby to zmírnili a vytvářeli pozitivní, kulturní a komunikační atmosféru.

„Dnešní den patří všem, kteří se před 32 lety zasloužili o návrat demokracie a svobody do Československa. Jen díky Vám dnes můžem,“ napsala předsedkyně TOP 09 Markéta Pekarová Adamová na Twitteru. Upozornila na to, že demokracie vyžaduje odpovědnost, a svoboda je křehká. „Na nás všech je hodnoty 17. listopadu hájit a předávat dalším generacím,“ napsala na závěr Pekarová.

Na absenci komunistů v parlamentu odkázal i předseda hnutí STAN Vít Rakušan. „Letošní listopad je unikátní. Poprvé ho slavíme bez komunistů v parlamentu,“ řekl Rakušan. „Jedna éra skončila, voliči rozhodli tak, že se otevírá nová kapitola,“ pokračoval u památníku 17. listopadu.

Předseda hnutí STAN také zavzpomínal na revoluci v roce 1989, kdy mu bylo 11 let. „Je to událost, kterou už mám v hlavě. Dětský mozek je úžasný v tom, že zapomíná nedůležité momenty, ale zachovává ty důležité, jako třeba brečící babičku, radující se rodiče, stávkující sourozence na gymnáziu a podobně,“ popsal Rakušan. 

Předseda Pirátů Ivan Bartoš novinářům řekl, že 17. listopad je pro něj jak inspirativně, tak emočně velmi silný zážitek. Za důležitou pro demokracii považuje vzdělanou a informovanou společnost, která dokáže čelit nástrahám minulým, ale i budoucím. S tímto datem má spojenou i další důležitou životní událost – před šesti lety se oženil s manželkou Lydií.

Tomio Okamura popsal Den boje za svobodu a demokracii jako zápas lidí za svá práva, který ještě neskončil a ani neskončí. „Svoboda by měla být nástrojem spravedlnosti. To dnes mnozí naši občané necítí, a naopak mají pocit, že se spravedlnosti ve své zemi nemohou dovolat, “ vyjádřil se předseda SPD na svém Twitteru.

Researchers a the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis have developed a method that uses engineered microbes to produce the necessary ingredients for a biocompatible adhesive hydrogel that is as strong as spider silk and as adhesive as mussel foot protein (Mfp), which means it can stick to a myriad of surfaces underwater.

The research led by Fuzhong Zhang, professor of energy, environmental and chemical engineering, was published in the journal ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces.

“Researchers have been trying to develop adhesives that can work underwater, or even just when they are wet, for quite some time,” said Eugene Kim, currently an assistant professor at George Mason University. Kim is first author of the paper and worked on this project as a PhD student in Zhang’s Washington University lab.

The research team also included Young-Shin Jun, professor of energy, environmental and chemical engineering, and Guy Genin, the Harold and Kathleen Faught Professor of Mechanical Engineering.

“In a previous proof-of-concept study, we engineered microbes to produce a mussel foot protein (Mfp) and its oligomeric variants,” Kim said. These variants are molecules made of a repeating chain of Mfp, with properties that vary based on the number of repeats.

“We wanted to know whether synthetic biology could help with underwater adhesion, a challenging task for synthetic materials.”

In 2018, Zhang’s lab showed that Mfp made by engineered bacteria has similar underwater adhesive properties as natural Mfps — and they could make Mfp oligomers that are even stickier.

Even though the microbial Mfp was incredibly sticky, they are difficult to handle underwater as the protein molecules quickly diffuse once added to water.

“When underwater, we had to make sure the adhesive Mfp could remain on a surface during repair,” Kim said.

One common solution to prevent diffusion is to formulate the adhesive Mfp protein into a hydrogel. The hydrogel has to be strong, or ideally, stronger than the adhesive force. However, it is extremely challenging to make a material that is both strong and adhesive as there is commonly a trade-off between these two properties, Kim said. “Many Mfp-inspired adhesives are weak. When you use them to adhere two surfaces underwater, the glue sticks to each of the two surfaces, but breaks apart, akin to separating an Oreo cookie and being left with cream on both sides.”

That’s where spider silk came in.

For years, Zhang’s lab has also been using synthetic biology to engineer and produce spider silk proteins. Earlier this year, they produced a silk-amyloid hybrid protein that was stronger than steel and tougher than Kevlar. The high strength of this silk-amyloid hybrid — which keeps the material intact — was just what was needed for their adhesive.

The team integrated the silk-amyloid protein with Mfp and, using a synthetic biology approach, synthesized a tri-hybrid protein that has the benefits of both the strong adhesion of Mfp and the high strength of spider silk. Using the tri-hybrid protein, they prepared adhesive hydrogels.

“We developed a design principle that allowed us to control both cohesion and adhesion of the hydrogel,” Zhang said. “The gel is slightly denser than water so you can easily use it underwater, putting it on or between two surfaces.”

Because the protein-based adhesive can be biocompatible and biodegradable, the lab is particularly excited about its potential applications in tissue repair. This protein, they write in the paper, is particularly attractive for tendon-bone repair, which suffers from a high failure rate from current suture-based strategies.

“Spiders, bacteria, slimy sea creatures, and rotator cuff tears have very little in common,” Jun noted. “It is fascinating that the Zhang lab was able to combine the best parts of the first three and to make the new elastic materials with molecular-scale crystalline structures that can serve as a stronger and flexible adhesive. It would be even cooler when we can use it in medical care for repairing shoulder injuries.”

By controlling bacteria to modify each motif of the protein, including parts from spider silk and mussel foot proteins, they can control the adhesion and strength of the hydrogel, tailoring it to meet the specific requirements for tendon-bone repair and other tissue repair needs.

Genin put the research into the context of humans’ longstanding, complicated relationships with bacteria.

“We’ve gotten bacteria to help heal a wound — for the first time, ever,” Genin said. “Bacteria caused our ancestors to cut their limbs off and now, for the first time, we’ve been able to hijack bacteria to make a material that’s unattainable any other way, with biomedical applications including rotator cuff surgeries that actually make limbs work again.

“This is unbelievably cool.”

Between the Central African Republic, Nigeria and France, Samuel Fosso continues to migrate. “I am like the bird”, declares the smiling and talkative artist who likes to tell stories, sometimes illustrated with African sayings. He lives in Nigeria with his wife and four children and often works in Paris, in his workshop.

That November day, he landed for some time at the European House of Photography, which offers him a large retrospective, until March 2022. The first in France. “It’s not complicated my life, it’s like taking a car to go to work in the morning. And what is more dangerous, the plane or the car? ”

Obsession for metamorphosis

The passing years have not weakened the humor of this African photographer, who for more than forty years has been unfolding a singular work, made exclusively of self-portraits. He gives free rein to his obsession with metamorphosis, cross-dressing, staging. Lately, however, his work has taken a dark turn, as if echoing his life endlessly overtaken by tragedy.

“We stayed three years hidden in the bush, with my grandmother, because of the Biafran war. »Samuel Fosso

For the series SixSixSix, the artist has for once stripped his images of all artifice: no clothes, no accessories, not even his glasses. “In the pictures, I am as I was born”, he sums up. Exposure reinforced by the choice of Polaroid, instant and final image: “I wanted to be natural, without retouching. ”

In a long ribbon of images, he lines up on the walls 666 large formats in earthy tones, where his aged face goes through all the expressions, especially painful. “Everywhere I go, misfortune follows me, he sums up. So I decided to do the devil’s number, six six six (666). And to make my life as it is, for better or for worse… as they say for marriage! ”

This series, serious and stripped down, breaks with the colorful and sophisticated portraits of previous years. And for good reason. The photographer, who has been living in the Central African Republic for years in Bangui, saw the civil war knock on his door in 2013. He evacuated his family to Nigeria, but was holed up at home for three days, alone, without eating, before to be able in turn to flee the country.

“When I managed to take the plane to Bangui, in January 2014, I saw the entire population who were at the airport, crying, without anything to eat. It made me cry. And when I arrived in France, a month later, I was told that my house had been looted. I got sick. Depression. ”

In recent days, the United States has warned Russia about military movements on the Ukrainian border or for its « influence » with Belarus in the migrant crisis at the gates of the European Union, and strongly denounced a Russian anti-satellite missile that was judged “Dangerous and irresponsible”. The American president also sharply criticized the absence of his Russian counterpart at the 26e Conference parties (COP) for the climate of the United Nations. These two great rival powers, whose relations have been at their lowest since the end of the Cold War, continue to argue over the size of their embassies, after several waves of expulsions of diplomats.

In recent days, the United States has warned Russia about military movements on the Ukrainian border or for its « influence » with Belarus in the migrant crisis at the gates of the European Union, and strongly denounced a Russian anti-satellite missile that was judged “Dangerous and irresponsible”. The American president also sharply criticized the absence of his Russian counterpart at the 26e Conference parties (COP) for the climate of the United Nations. These two great rival powers, whose relations have been at their lowest since the end of the Cold War, continue to argue over the size of their embassies, after several waves of expulsions of diplomats.

The study examined data from one of the densest seismic arrays ever deployed and found that earthquakes emit their strongest seismic shockwaves in four opposing directions. The effect, which leaves a pattern resembling a four-leaf clover, has been known for decades but never measured in such vivid detail.

Daniel Trugman, an earthquake geophysicist at the Department for Geological Sciences in the UT Jackson School of Geosciences, said that the study looked at only one type of seismic shaking caused by very small earthquakes in northern Oklahoma.

“What’s important in these results is that close to the source we’re seeing a variation in ground motion, and that’s not accounted for in any sort of hazard model,” Trugman said. He added that efforts were already underway to see how the phenomena plays out in California’s big fault systems.

The analysis was published in the September issue of Geophysical Research Letters and is based on measurements of two-dozen small earthquakes recorded by the LArge-n Seismic Survey in Oklahoma (LASSO), an array of 1,829 seismic sensors deployed for 28 days in 2016 to monitor a remote corner of the state measuring 15 by 20 miles.

When earthquakes strike, they release a thunderclap of seismic energy at many frequencies, but the actual ground shaking people feel ranges from about 1 hertz to 20 hertz. The study found that low frequency energy — about 1 to 10 hertz — shot from the fault in four directions, but barely registered outside of the four-leaf clover pattern. This is important because buildings are more vulnerable to low frequency waves. The four-leaf clover pattern wasn’t found for higher frequency waves, which travelled at equal strength in all directions, like ripples in a pond.

Co-author Victor Tsai, a geophysicist at Brown University, said that the reason the Earth shook unevenly at different frequencies might have something to do with the complex geometry of earthquake faults and the broken-up material packed between them.

“What happens when you have an earthquake is that pieces of broken rock inside the fault zone start to move around like pinballs,” he said. The jostling pieces redirect the energy randomly but at lower frequencies, seismic waves simply bypass the rough geologic mess near the fault, travelling in a nice four-leaf clover pattern just as physics predicts.

This means that on the surface, a person might feel the same shaking regardless of where they stood, but buildings — which are sensitive to low frequency waves — would feel the earthquake much more intensely within the lines of the four-leaf clover pattern.

Geophysicists have long known about this pattern; it’s taught in seismology 101. But, until now, evidence of its effect has been sparse. That’s because over large distances seismic waves are refracted regardless of frequency, smoothing out their differences and making earthquakes seem the same in all directions.

Near an earthquake’s source, however, the pattern should be distinct. That’s where the LASSO array came in. Its closely packed sensors recorded earthquakes while they were unfolding, gathering measurements from hundreds of locations in northern Oklahoma that the U.S. Geological Survey, which funded and deployed the array, made freely available online.

To test their idea about uneven shaking near faults, Trugman developed algorithms to filter the LASSO data. At low frequencies, each earthquake showed a four-leaf clover pattern of shaking; at higher frequencies there was no clear pattern, just as Tsai had predicted.

Although the tremors recorded by the LASSO array were barely perceptible, the physics that drive them should be the same for stronger quakes. The scientists have already begun examining larger faults to see whether their age or shape can change the intensity of ground motion. Their goal is to build a catalogue of earthquake zones, showing which faults can generate the strongest and most dangerous types of seismic waves.

The research was funded by the U.S. Geological Survey and the National Science Foundation. Trugman is also a researcher at the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics, a unit of the Jackson School of Geosciences.

The early elimination undoubtedly affected the match. The team played at ten o’clock. What has changed in tactics?

We ran much more after the exclusion. At the beginning of the match, we had to solve some situations better, Lukáš Červ in the second half again brought a certain revival to the movement of the entire team. After the elimination, the players simply had nothing to lose and were therefore more courageous. We also had a chance to turn the result around.

Adam Karabec was dealt two yellow cards within five minutes. After the first card, there was an instruction not to “provoke”, but then he was expelled. Did you deal with him?

Players were instructed to access opponents, but did not foule. For Adam, the defense is a shortcoming. Both fouls stemmed from the fact that the match was mainly a fight and Adam was not on the ball as often as he would like. This led to some frustration. Red cards simply become football. I believe he will learn and take the good out of it. Fortunately, we were able to at least balance the match. Things like inconcentration and moodiness are not just about him, these problems need to be eliminated for multiple players so that it does not limit them directly in the game.

What did the match in Koper actually show from the point of view of the group’s development?

We expected such a course of the match. It was more of a fight than a nice football. We complicated the situation with an exclusion and an unfinished duel after a corner kick. Even though you play at ten, you have to focus on such a thing. But I have to appreciate the boys for forming and following all the instructions we said at half-time. But we deserved a point, the equalizer was a reward for our activity despite the fact that we played at ten. We are happy for the point, because in the current situation he solves quite hopefully that we can play for the first two places.

You closed your opponents for the last quarter of an hour and they basically didn’t know what to play …

I don’t think we would lock them completely, but we were dangerous in weakness as well. The players soaked it, they went all the way and there were a lot of good individual performances. Maybe we would win at eleven, but maybe not. We are glad that we managed to remake it, but if we want to move, it must not happen to us. We still have a lot of work to do.

After six qualifying matches, the team has thirteen points. How satisfied are you with autumn?

I am satisfied with the number of points. The situation was not easy, but we managed an excellent entry with a managed match with Slovenia at home. The players then became nervous and we won the first four matches. Then the biggest favorite in the form of England was waiting for us. We did not succeed in this match, but a point from Slovenia helped us. It turned out well, if I had to grade like in school, I would give the players two minus.

What needs to be improved?

We need to work on all aspects of the game, but I think we can rely on defensive action and the center of the field. We have shortcomings in terms of the final phase. It’s about keeping players 100% focused on everything they do in the national team and in clubs. They did not let themselves be decided by situations they see differently, because even a ten-second loss of concentration can affect further performance.

Even in Koper, the players threw away several chances …

It’s about choosing the right place and concentrating on the ending.

Nevertheless, the top player, this time Tomáš Čvančara, prevailed again. Are you glad the attackers are doing well?

I don’t want the attackers to be “defenders”. On the other hand, I like that all spike players are able to help the team with their work. Plus, they’re scoring goals, we’re glad we have them. which must improve.

The fall is over for twenty-one. Will you already be watching not only the players you have in the staff, but also others?

Of course, but we will watch them mainly in the spring. Let’s hope there are no injuries and players will gain even more ground in clubs. In the spring we will have four matches that we will want to manage.

The list of the ten African selections qualified for the play-offs of the 2022 FIFA World Cup is now known: Algeria, Mali, Morocco, Nigeria, Ghana, Egypt, Cameroon, Tunisia, Senegal and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) will face each other in March to hope to participate in the World Cup. Only five will go to Qatar. The draw for the matches (home and away) that will determine the African contingent will take place on December 18.

There could only be one left. The long-awaited “final” between the Indomitable Lions and the Elephants was played on Tuesday, November 16 in the evening at the Japoma stadium, in Douala. Winners in the first leg played in Abidjan (2-1), the Ivorians, African champions in 2015, thought they had gained a psychological advantage over their opponent. Cameroonian side, the supporters feared an elimination that would have stained less than two months before the African Cup of Nations (CAN), which is to be held in their country from January 9 to February 6, 2022. A goal of the striker from Lyon Karl Toko-Ekambi registered from the 20e minute allowed the Lions to win against an Ivorian team too little enterprising.

Burkina Faso has never been an easy opponent for Algeria, and this was confirmed again during this second round. The two selections, which had separated in a draw in the first leg (1-1), played their place in the play-off Tuesday night in Blida. The Stallions had to win. Before the match, Djamel Belmadi and Kamou Malo, the two coaches, had increased the pressure by bickering through the media. On the poor lawn of the Mustapha-Tchaker stadium, Algeria twice led in the score thanks to Riyad Mahrez and Sofiane Feghouli. But the Fennecs, joined in the 84e minute after a penalty converted by Issoufou Dayo, could have lost everything if the Burkinabés had scored a third goal. By winning the draw (2-2), Algeria not only validated its qualification for the play-offs, but also increased its unbeaten streak to 33 games.

Of the ten selections qualified for the play-offs, Mali is the only one to have never participated in a World Cup final phase. Coach Mohamed Magassouba, appointed in 2017, does not have the most high-sounding workforce in Africa, but the results are there: the Eagles, who will play their eighth CAN in Cameroon, have achieved an almost perfect course in this second qualifying round (five wins and one draw). Deprived of its Bamako stadium, the team played its “home” matches in Agadir, Morocco, where it won all its matches, including the last, decisive, against Uganda (1-0). She is also the only one not to have conceded a single goal during this second round.

She explains to the Associated Press (AP): “It’s something that all Asian Americans have experienced. They [les Américains] put us in the “Asian” box. So it was very important that she was specifically American of Korean descent, not just Korean, but that she was born here. “
