The newspapers has filed a complaint with the Moscow prosecutor’s office. “We urge the authorities to carry out a swift and thorough investigation to identify those responsible this smear campaign,” the press freedom organisation said. “It is an insult to the work of this newspaper’s journalists, whom we fully support in this case. The accusations make it even harder for them to do their job. The public must be able to have access to the reports in Kommersant, which is one of the country’s few remaining independent news media.” Kommersant was bought on 31 August by mining and metals magnate Alisher Usmanov, who also owns a Gazprom subsidiary. It has demonstrated a degree of independence and itis often criticised by the government. Its journalists are regularly threatened. For the past 10 days, its website has been the target of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, which consist of bombarding a site with an extremely high volume of connection requests and thereby blocking the server. Georgiy Ivanov, the head of Kommersant’s legal department, described the attacks as “the most important against the site since its creation.” Reporters Without Borders tried for half an hour yesterday to connect to the site without success. Young people distributed rolls of toilet paper bearing the newspaper’s logo two weeks ago on the streets of Moscow. Some rolls also bore the mobile phone number of one of its reporters, Yulia Taratuta, who thereafter received many anonymous calls. Kommersant said some of the toilet rolls were even found inside the Duma (parliament) building.

US, UAE kick off amphibious drill Iron Magic

first_img October 19, 2017 Back to overview,Home naval-today US, UAE kick off amphibious drill Iron Magic View post tag: Amphibious View post tag: Iron Magic View post tag: UAE Navy Authoritiescenter_img US Marines and amphibious forces were joined by armed forces of the United Arab Emirates on October 15 to start a two-week amphibious exercise called Iron Magic.Iron Magic enables regional partners to coordinate amphibious landing, infantry training, military operations in urban terrain (MOUT), mechanized assault and maneuver, life fire, helicopter assault and internal security training events off the coast of the UAE.Naval Amphibious Force, Task Force 51 and the 5th Marine Expeditionary Brigade (TF 51/5) will be operating from the dock landing ship USS Pearl Harbor during the exercise.“USS Pearl Harbor and embarked 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit sailors and marines will conduct critical amphibious training with the UAE armed forces to enhance capabilities in critical mission sets inherent to the U.S. Navy-Marine Corps team operating within the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility,” said Brig. Gen. Frank Donovan, TF 51/5 commander. “Recurring training opportunities with our UAE partners supports the professional development of our forces and military-to-military relationship development and is in keeping with our shared dedicated efforts to ensure regional stability, security and prosperity.”“We look forward to training alongside the UAE Armed Forces on specific skillsets inherent to both of our units,” said Lt. Col. James Stover, the Combat Logistics Battalion 15 commanding officer and landing force commander of troops aboard USS Pearl Harbor. “This is an excellent opportunity to strengthen tactical proficiencies ranging from amphibious ship to shore operations, logistical sustainment from a sea base and ashore, and infantry tactics; everything we will be doing increases knowledge and cooperation between our two militaries to be better prepared to address security concerns together.” Share this article View post tag: US Navy US, UAE kick off amphibious drill Iron Magiclast_img read more

Seeking a breakthrough on catalysts

first_imgThey have been a fundamental part of modern industry for more than a century, but the development of new catalysts to speed chemical processes has remained frustratingly hit-or-miss.Now, a group of Harvard researchers is approaching the problem in an entirely new way.Working with colleagues at several national laboratories and other partnering institutions, researchers at the Department of Energy-funded Energy Frontier Research Center’s Integrated Mesoscale Architectures for Sustainable Catalysis (IMASC) at Harvard are combining tightly-controlled experimental conditions and computational tools to develop novel methods for developing catalysts and new ways to understand the process of catalysis.Led by Cynthia Friend, the Theodore William Richards Professor of Chemistry and Professor of Materials Science and director of the Rowland Institute, the IMASC researchers have gained new insight into exactly how catalysis works — findings that could play an important role in the design and development of more energy-efficient catalysts. The work is described in a Dec. 19 paper published in Nature Materials.“This is really a paradigm shift in catalyst discovery,” Challa S.S.R. Kumar, the program’s managing director, said. “For 100 years or more, this was a trial-and-error process. In recent years, people are striving for a more systematic approach. Our center, through synergistic collaboration between the investigators from the partnering institutions, is establishing new principles for understanding catalytic reactions under very tightly controlled conditions, with computational modeling. These principles are used to develop catalysts that work under real-world conditions.”With those principles in mind, researchers are currently exploring the use of nanoporous silver-gold alloys as improved catalysts.“These catalyst materials are designed based on our model systems,” Kumar said.To aid in the development of catalytic materials, Friend and colleagues from the Lawrence Berkeley, Brookhaven, and Lawrence Livermore national laboratories set out to observe the process of catalysis as it happens. Cutting-edge scientific tools yielded images of the atoms in the material and monitored how the composition of the catalyst surface changed. Microscopy facilities at the Center for Functional Nanomaterials at Brookhaven and the Advanced Light Source at Berkeley were essential for these experiments.“We know we can design the catalysts and then transmit them to realistic conditions, but we didn’t know how the catalyst materials behave as catalysis is occurring,” Kumar said. “That’s a critical piece of information that has not been taken into consideration when designing new catalysts.“What we have shown with this paper is that we now have the tools to investigate how catalysts dynamically change just before catalysis, during catalysis, and after catalysis,” he continued. “And these dynamic changes can be correlated to the activity and selectivity of the catalyst.”Improving industrial chemical processes isn’t the only reason for developing new catalysts.Nearly one-third of the world’s energy is devoted to the chemical industry, Kumar said, so finding ways to make those processes more efficient — either by speeding them up or by enabling them to take place at lower temperatures — could yield a significant environmental impact.“There is a huge carbon footprint left by many of these chemical processes, some of which are more than 100 years old,” Kumar said. “If we can reduce the energy budget for those processes … it could have a tremendous impact on energy usage, and dramatically change that carbon footprint. And now we have the tools to do that.”last_img read more

The Heidi Chronicles, Starring Elisabeth Moss, Will Close Early

first_img Related Shows The Heidi Chronicles Show Closed This production ended its run on May 3, 2015 View Comments The first Broadway revival of Wendy Wassterstein’s The Heidi Chronicles will play its final performance on May 3, according to The New York Times. The Pam MacKinnon-helmed production stars Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss, Jason Biggs and Tony nominee Bryce Pinkham. Performances were initially scheduled to run through August 9. At the time of its closing, the production will have played 80 performances at the Music Box Theatre.“We were very well reviewed, and the performances were remarkable, but people didn’t come to see it,” producer Jeffrey Richards told the Times. “Whether it was how crazy busy it was at this time of year or the consumer being asked to choose between so many shows, Heidi Chronicles was not at the top of their list.”The Heidi Chronicles won both the Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize in 1989. This is the first revival since the original production shuttered in 1990. The show spans over 20 years, following Heidi Holland (Moss) from high school to her career as an art historian and how she copes with feminism, men, politics and motherhood.In addition to Moss, Biggs and Pinkham, the cast includes Tracee Chimo, Ali Ahn, Leighton Bryan, Elise Kibler and Andy customers with tickets to canceled performances will be contacted with information on refunds or exchanges.last_img read more
