Les vaches des animaux très sociaux

first_imgLes vaches, des animaux très sociauxRoyaume-Uni – Selon les études menées par une doctorante britannique, les vaches ressentiraient un stress important lorsqu’elles sont séparées de leurs ‘amies’, les congénères auxquelles elles sont habituées. Un constat qui pourrait conduire à une amélioration du sort de ces animaux… et de leur production laitière.C’est une expérience originale qu’a menée Krista McLennan, de l’Université de Northampton au Royaume-Uni. Pour évaluer la sociabilité des vaches domestiques, celle-ci a parqué plusieurs bovins durant 30 minutes dans un enclos, soit seul, soit avec un congénère ‘ami’, soit avec un congénère inconnu. Elle a alors mesuré, à des intervalles de 15 secondes, la fréquence cardiaque et les taux de cortisol, hormone du stress, de l’animal.À lire aussiUn anaconda avale une énorme proie devant les camérasRésultats : il s’avère que les vaches sont des animaux très sociaux qui, souvent, tissent des liens étroits avec d’autres individus de leur troupeau. “Lorsque les génisses ont leur compagne privilégiée avec eux, leur niveau de stress, révélé par leur rythme cardiaque, est réduit par rapport à quand elles se trouvent en compagnie d’un individu pris au hasard”, explique Krista McLennan.”J’ai parlé à un certain nombre d’agriculteurs, qui ont dit qu’ils avaient remarqué que des liens se créaient parmi leurs vaches, dont certaines passaient beaucoup de temps ensemble. Si nous pouvons encourager les agriculteurs à [en tenir compte], cela pourrait avoir des avantages réels, tels que l’amélioration de leurs rendements laitiers et la réduction du stress pour les animaux, ce qui est très important pour leur bien-être”, conclut la chercheuse.Le 9 juillet 2011 à 14:59 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

LOCDE préconise une meilleure gestion de leau

first_imgL’OCDE préconise une meilleure gestion de l’eauDans un rapport, l’organisation des pays industrialisés (OCDE) met en avant l’importance et l’urgence qu’il y a à réformer la gestion des ressources en eau de la planète. Un document essentiel qui est publié à quelques jours de l’ouverture du 6e Forum mondial de l’Eau.D’ici 2050, la demande d’eau dans le monde augmentera de 55%. A ce moment-là, près de 4 habitants sur 10 vivront, selon les estimations, dans des régions soumises à un fort stress hydrique. De plus, 1,4 milliard de personnes resteront privées d’accès à des installations sanitaires de base d’ici-là. Liée à l’accroissement de la population et à l’accélération de l’urbanisation, cette demande ne peut être satisfaite qu’en réformant d’urgence la gestion de l’eau au niveau mondial, estime l’OCDE dans un rapport.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?”Il est primordial d’utiliser l’eau de façon rationnelle, ainsi que de la tarifer convenablement pour décourager le gaspillage”, souligne le rapport, intitulé “Répondre au défi des réformes dans le secteur de l’eau”. Parmi les propositions effectuées, l’organisation évoque le “recours à des instruments économiques comme les marchés de l’eau”. Promouvoir le recours aux “3T”, tarifs, taxes et transferts “pour combler l’écart entre financements publics et privés disponibles et les besoins en investissements” figure également sur le document, selon TV5monde.Mais le rapport insiste aussi sur le rôle primordial des pouvoirs publics. Ceux-ci doivent favoriser l’innovation et les investissements pour la mise en place de structures écologiques de collectes et de traitement des eaux usées. Autre point fondamental, les réformes dans la gouvernance de l’eau, y compris au niveau des administrations et échelons territoriaux. En outre, “les pouvoirs publics devraient se pencher beaucoup plus attentivement sur les interactions qui existent entre les mesures adoptées dans les domaines de l’eau, de l’énergie, de l’agriculture et de l’environnement”, insiste le document.Le 9 mars 2012 à 14:13 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Black box recorder recovered from wreckage of train crash

first_imgHOBOKEN, N.J. — Federal investigators pulled one of the black box recorders from the wrecked commuter train at the Hoboken station and struggled to extract the second one Friday as they tried to figure out what caused the crash that killed one person and injured more than 100 others.The two event recorders could contain information on speed, braking and other conditions that can help investigators determine whether the tragedy resulted from an equipment malfunction or a distracted or incapacitated engineer.Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board will be looking to determine how fast the train was going when it crashed at the busy station Thursday morning. They hope to speak to the train’s injured engineer on Friday, NTSB Vice Chairman T. Bella Dinh-Zarr said. State officials say he has been cooperating.The investigation will seek to answer many questions, including whether a system designed to prevent accidents by overriding the engineer and automatically slowing or stopping trains that are going too fast could have helped if it had been installed on the line.Investigators recovered an event recorder from the locomotive Thursday night and will be examining it Friday, Dinh-Zarr said Friday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” The device contains information on the train’s speed and braking.last_img read more

J Coles New Album KOD Arrives Along With Three Title Explanations

first_img Twitter What Does ‘KOD’ Mean To J. Cole? j-coles-new-album-kod-arrives-along-three-title-explanations The first interpretation of the title, according to a video on Twitter, is “Kids On Drugs.” A detuned voice in the video, presumably Cole’s, explains, “If I turn on the TV right now, it’s not gonna take long for there to be an advertisement that pops up that says, ‘Are you feeling down? Have you been having lonely thoughts?’ And then they shove a pill in your face. The first response of any problems is medicate.”The second meaning follows: “King Overdose.” The voice returns, “That’s representing me, the times that I was, and am, afflicted by the same methods of escape, whether it be alcohol, phone addiction, women.”It should be noted that the album’s cover contains a written message at the top that reads, “This album is in no way intended to glorify addiction.” The third meaning? “Kill Our Demons.””That’s the end goal, to face our s***, realize that we have some s*** going on inside. Everybody … because nobody’s f***ing perfect,” the voice says, “We’ve got to be honest with ourselves. Look in the mirror or look inside and ask ourselves questions like, ‘What’s causing me to run to this thing as an escape?’ And once I find the root of that, let me look it in its face and see what it really is.”The release of KOD came with short notice, as Cole began teasing the project just earlier this week. On April 16 he put on a surprise open-invite listening party at the Gramercy Theatre in New York City, and on April 18 he revealed the album artwork and track listing. KOD is the follow-up to Cole’s 2016 album, 4 Your Eyez Only, which was his fourth consecutive No. 1 album.

Sec Jewell on the Hot Seat in Murkowskis Committee

first_imgSen. Lisa Murkowski confronted Interior Secretary Sally Jewell today  at a hearing of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee. The subject was the president’s proposed budget for the Interior Department. But Murkowski used the occasion to bash Jewell for recent department decisions blocking oil development on the North Slope.“Interior’s decisions are hurting Alaskans. You’re depriving us of jobs, revenue, security and prosperity,” Murkowski told her.The senator says the Obama administration, by putting 22 million acres of Arctic land and waters off-limits in recent weeks, will starve the trans-Alaska pipeline of oil.  Jewell says that’s not her intent, and she suggests it’s not the government’s fault.“Senator, I am fully committed to supporting the efforts in the North Slope of Alaska to keep the trans-Alaska pipeline full,” Jewell said. “As you know, I worked on that pipeline as a college student. As a petroleum engineer, I understand how fields peak, and Prudhoe Bay oil field and related oil fields have been passed their peak production for some time, I’m aware of that.”The Interior secretary says her department is only protecting areas that have the highest ecological value, or those identified by subsistence whalers. Jewell says in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska, 72 percent of the estimated recoverable oil is in areas open to leasing.“And we have recently approved ConocoPhillips’ preferred proposal for drilling in the National Petroleum Reserve,” Jewell said.  “Offshore, 90 percent of the estimated recoverable oil and gas will be available for leasing in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas.”Murkowski also brought up another sore point: the road that could connect King Cove to Cold Bay. Murkowski says if sick and injured people could get to Cold Bay’s larger airport, they could more safely reach a hospital, but Jewell, in late 2013, rejected a proposed 10-mile road through the Izembek National Wildlife Refuge to connect the communities.“Do you know when King Cove saw its most recent Medevac?” Murkowski asked.“I’m not aware of their most recent Medevac,” Jewell admitted.“It was Sunday. Sunday night,” the senator said. “Do you know how many Medevacs have been carried out so far in 2015?Jewell didn’t know that either. The answer was five. And, Murkowski says, there’ve been 21 Medevacs, some by Coast Guard helicopter, from King Cove in the 14 months since Jewell rejected the single-lane gravel road.Jewell says her trip to Kivalina last week reminded her that King Cove isn’t the only Alaska community with difficult access.“There are many villages that struggle in the case of medical evacuations and I appreciate it’s part of our job to work on that, and I will continue to work with you on that,” Jewell said.Murkowski says, of all the isolated communities, King Cove is the only one with an all-weather airport so close, and she’s dismayed the president’s budget includes no solutions for King Cove.Jewell says Interior is considering alternative access through the refuge, maybe by air or water.last_img read more

about him when he’s practising and certainly in the middle when I’ve played against him twice this year” England fast bowler Stuart Broad said “He knows his gameplan for such a young guy and has been hugely impressive in the conditions so far” Duckett is a more attacking player a fierce cutter and puller of the ball and many believe he would provide a more suitable foil for the obdurate and disciplined Cook particularly against the inexperienced Bangladesh seam bowlers England could opt to play Duckett in the middle order in place of Gary Ballance who has not cemented his place after

starts on Thursday in Chittagong For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBengaluru received 128 cm of rain in just five hours between Monday night and Tuesday morning the highest amount of rain which the city has got in August since 1890 This led to flooding in several parts of the city after which drainage water entered the houses in low-lying areas and left cars parked in the basement submerged As Vishwanath Srikantaiah water activist and advisor at Biome Environmental Solutions pointed out on Facebook one of the main reasons why the city was flooded is that Bengaluru did not have a good rainwater harvesting plan He also said that the levels of reservoirs in the city were still below that of last year which was also a bad year in terms of amount of rainfall The live storage in the Harangi reservoir on Wednesday was 680 thousand million cubic feet (TMC) whereas its capacity is 807 TMC Similarly the storage in Hemavathi reservoir on Wednesday was 1507 TMC whereas its full capacity is 3576 TMC KRS and Kabini reservoirs also had 1261 and 673 TMC of water stored on Wednesday whereas the full capacity was 4505 and 1567 TMC respectively In September 2008 Srikantaiah had also written about how Bengaluru received more local rainfall because of various reasons the first of which was the urban heat island effect because of which "cities are warmer than their surroundings and which causes the build-up of rain clouds on the city" Pollution was also a major factor because it allowed rain to coalesce around pollutant particles The wind-break effect of cities also caused the clouds to discharge when reaching the cities Pollution and unchecked urbanisation are some of the major reasons behind the floods in Bengaluru News18 The water activist also pointed out that Bengaluru needed better solid waste management and storm water management techniques Traditional storm water management techniques simply collected the rain water and channelled it across the city downstream Newer methods like the Sustainable Drainage Systems (SUDS) used a variety of natural processes to purify urban runoff He further said that special maps showing which areas of the city were prone to flooding needed to be available to people ANI also quoted Janata Dal (Secular) leader Danish Ali as saying that land-grabbing was another reason behind flooding "Waterlogging in Bangalore is taking place because of land grabbing Most of the lakes and wells are encroached by land mafias politicians and bureaucrats Unless and until an action against these encroachments is taken these issues will remain the same" ANI quoted Ali as saying Another article in Hindustan Times similarly pointed out that with the unchecked urbanisation of Bengaluru there had been a 1005 percent increase in paved surfaces in the city between 1973 and 2016 according to a study by the Indian Institute of Science Bengaluru’s vegetation had also decreased by 88 percent between 2000 and 2014 During Wednesday’s flash floods in Bengaluru the worst-hit regions were south and eastern parts of Bengaluru — Koramangala HSR Layout Ejipura Jayanagar JP Nagar BTM Layout Bannerghatta

have such a hard time after all Two fashion giants LVMH and Kering– whoown some of the biggest fashion brands in the world and have played an integral part in promoting the ‘thin is beautiful’ body image – have finally stepped up and decided to address this serious problem which leads to disorders like bulimia and anorexia in girls as young as 13 in their drive to have a perfect figure Accordingto a BBC report two of the largest luxury conglomerates that house brands like Christian Dior Loius Vuitton YSL Givenchy and Gucci have decided to ban size-zero models from their fashion

company website “We have the responsibility of building new standards for fashion and we hope to be followed by other players in our sector”said Antoine Arnault member of LVMH Board of Directors Chairman of Loro Piana and Chief Executive Officer of Berluti It’s a well-known fact that women around the world struggle with issues of body image as they feel they aren’t ‘thin enough’ In their quest to achieve ‘size zero’ which is touted as a must-have for anyone hoping to be ‘model-perfect beautiful’ most women go on severe diets and end up starving themselves or get eating disorders It’s not just the everyday woman who has been affected by the fashion industry’s diktat on what is the right size but even the gorgeous Princess Diana suffered from body image issues and ended up with an eating disorder The move by these fashion houses came after plus-size models such as Tess Holiday and Ashley Graham paved the way for women who aren’t waif-like but still proudly call themselves beautiful Now the only models that can work with them have to be bigger than the French size 32 which is US size 6 and UK size zero They will also not use models under 16 for adult clothes The French government also took an active step by banning ultra-thin models from working in their country At a time when the trending social media sizes have become the next big thing for all fashion divas this move by the fashion brands to ‘resize’ what is beautiful is much welcomed Ironically the dresses endorsed by these brands meant for regular women are worn by super-skinny models leaving these women to
