Recent border skirmish tops UN talks with Israeli Lebanese military officialsRecent border skirmish tops UN talks with Israeli Lebanese military officials

An exchange of fire between the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) and the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) on 3 August reportedly led to the deaths of at least four people. The incident was triggered by Israel’s announcement of its intention to cut down a tree in the proximity of the Blue Line. The UN mission, known as UNIFIL, later confirmed that the tree was located south of the line on the Israeli side.At today’s tripartite meeting at the Ras Al Naqoura crossing, officials from the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) and the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) provided their comments regarding UNIFIL’s investigation.“It was a productive meeting with many significant issues on the agenda,” said UNIFIL Force Commander Major-General Alberto Asarta Cuevas.“It was important for me to listen for the first time to the comment and views of the parties on UNIFIL’s investigation report on the 3 August exchange of fire,” he said. Maj.-Gen. Asarta said that the mission will study and analyze the information, adding that “our intention is to finalize the investigation report as soon as possible.”Other topics discussed were how to speed up the visible marking of the so-called Blue Line separating the two countries, as well as the implementation of resolution 1701, which ended the 2006 conflict between Israel and Hizbollah.Both countries, he said, made clear that clearly demarcating the Blue Line would help to avoid misunderstandings and prevent incidents.“The discussions today reconfirmed that no party would like to see any escalation,” the official said, with Israel and Lebanon emphasizing “their continued commitment to maintain the cessation of hostilities and ensure that the exchange of fire that happened on 3 August remains and isolated incident.”On Monday, the Security Council extended UNIFIL’s mandate for another year, saying that its presence in Lebanon, as well as that of the LAF, is helping to promote stability in the south of the Middle Eastern country.In a unanimous resolution, the Council said it had determined that “the situation in Lebanon continues to constitute a threat to international peace and security” and had therefore decided to extend UNIFIL’s mandate until 31 August 2011.The Council strongly urged all parties concerned to respect the cessation of hostilities, to prevent any violation of the Blue Line, and to cooperate fully with the UN and UNIFIL.It also urged the Israeli Government to expedite the withdrawal of its army from northern Ghajar, a village that straddles the Blue Line, without further delay in coordination with UNIFIL, which, the Council said, has actively engaged Israel and Lebanon to facilitate the withdrawal.The Council also reaffirmed its call for the establishment, between the Blue Line and the Litani River, of an area free of any armed personnel, assets and weapons except those of the Lebanese Government and UNIFIL.It strongly deplored the recent incidents involving UN peacekeepers, emphasized the importance of not impairing the ability of the mission to fulfil its mandate, and called on all parties to abide by their obligation to respect the safety of UNIFIL and other UN personnel. 2 September 2010The investigation by the United Nations peacekeeping mission in Lebanon was the focus of today’s talks with Israeli and Lebanese senior military officials today. read more

US factory orders drop 24 per cent in July reflecting fall inUS factory orders drop 24 per cent in July reflecting fall in

US factory orders drop 2.4 per cent in July, reflecting fall in aircraft and machinery by Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press Posted Sep 5, 2013 10:06 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email WASHINGTON – Orders to U.S. factories fell in July by the sharpest amount in four months, held back by weaker demand for commercial aircraft and heavy machinery. A key category that reflects business investment plans also fell.Factory orders dropped 2.4 per cent in July compared with June, when orders rose 1.6 per cent, the Commerce Department reported Thursday.Orders for core capital goods, a category viewed as a proxy for business investment spending, fell 4 per cent in July.Core capital goods are considered a good measure of businesses’ confidence in the economy. They include items that point to expansion — such as machinery, computers and heavy trucks — while excluding volatile orders for aircraft and defence. The July setback was expected to be temporary.Orders for durable goods, items expected to last at least three years, declined 7.4 per cent, a slightly bigger drop than the 7.3 per cent fall estimated in a preliminary report last week. It was the biggest decline since a 12.9 per cent fall in August 2012. Orders for nondurable goods, items such as chemicals, food and paper, rose 2.4 per cent in July after a 0.5 per cent decline in June.Excluding the volatile transportation category, factory goods orders were up 1.2 per cent.The big drop in core capital goods orders suggests the third quarter is off to a weaker start than some had hoped. While economists cautioned that it’s just one month of data, a few lowered their growth estimates for the July-September quarter after seeing the durable goods report. Some believe that growth may only come in around 1.9 per cent for the current quarter, a drop from previous estimates of 2.5 per cent growth.Overall manufacturing has slumped this year, hurt by weakness overseas that has dragged on U.S. exports. But there have been signs that factory activity could pick up in the second half of the year.But the Institute for Supply Management reported Tuesday that its closely watched gauge of manufacturing activity rose in August to a reading of 55.7, up from 55.4 in July. That was the highest level since June 2011 and offered encouragement that manufacturing may be starting to pull out of its slowdown.The economy expanded at an annual rate of 2.5 per cent in the April-June quarter. read more

Moving Dartboard Keeps Players On TargetMoving Dartboard Keeps Players On Target

first_img Tune In As Brad Pitt Speaks With NASA Astronaut on ISSNASA Says 2 Asteroids Will Safely Fly By Earth This Weekend Practice makes perfect. But so does an engineering background and ingenuity.Inventor and science enthusiast Mark Rober, a self-proclaimed dart loser, built a moving dartboard that ensures even the drunkest players hit the bullseye.A former NASA Jet Propulsion Lab employee, Rober spent seven years working on the Mars Curiosity rover.Now he has nearly 1.8 million YouTube subscribers, hosts the Science Channel’s The Quick And The Curious TV show, and makes the occasional appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.Oh, and he essentially reverse engineered Luke Skywalker’s targeting computer.“I fulfilled a three-year-long dream to create a dartboard where you get a bullseye every time, thanks to some engineering,” according to the YouTube video description.Working with a fellow NASA team member, Rober designed the Automatic Bullseye Dartboard to track and predict the trajectory of a dart and reposition itself—within half a second—so you always hit your target.The complicated system consists of six motion capture cameras (which bounce infrared signals off tiny retroreflectors on the dart), a computer (which does the math and sends commands to the engine), half a dozen motors (which use a spool of fishing line to attach to the back of the board), and a mess of microcomputers, wires, converters, and drives.Mark Rober“Oh, and we don’t just make one guess on the final position of the board,” Rober explained. “We update and refine that guess anywhere from 10 to 100 times, which is why you sometimes sort of see the board jitter into the final position.”Sure, throwing winning shots is fun in Rober’s home lab. But the real test of dart-throwing success can only be proven in one place: a bar.Patrons at California’s Barney’s Beanery tried their hand at this newfangled game. Spoiler alert: They really enjoyed it.“In general, we found if you’re really drunk, you get so pumped at your new abilities,” Rober said. Stay on targetlast_img read more

Sixth Mass Extinction is All But Guaranteed Math SaysSixth Mass Extinction is All But Guaranteed Math Says

first_img Amazon Employees Join Sept. 20 Global Climate WalkoutResearchers Transform CO2 Into Liquid Fuel In the history of complex life on earth — more than half a billion years — there have been five mass extinctions. Each of them is clearly evident in the fossil record, and leaves dramatic chemical markers in the soil and rock layers below. All of them also represent significant jolts to the fundamental mechanisms that keep life on this plant going.Plants, for example, are constantly hard at work cranking out the oxygen that the rest of us need to breathe. If something happens to that supply — like most plants on earth suddenly dying off — then we’d be screwed.Up to now, there’s been strong evidence that, because of human activity, we are sprinting towards the sixth great mass extinction. New data suggest that we’re closer to the brink than we might think, and humanity is dangerously close to crossing critical thresholds.Mass Extinctions, be they caused by a meteor, or an ancient supervolcano, or anything else, are invariably preceded by massive jolts to the carbon cycle — a network of natural systems that moves carbon molecules around the planet. In a new paper in Science Advances, professor of geophysics at MIT, Daniel Rothman, asserts that there are two types of carbon disruptions that cause mass die-offs.The first says that if the carbon cycle changes over long periods — thousands or millions of years– extinctions occur when ecosystems cannot adapt. For faster shifts, the magnitude, not the rate of change, determines how likely an extinction event will be.Using models, Rothman asserts that humans will have crossed that marker by 2100. Carbon, he says, will build up in the ocean. After we dump about 310 gigatons of extra carbon into the seas, we will have hit a point that would not only be disastrous climatologically, but systemically. Over the next few thousand years, we could expect the vast majority of species on earth to die off. While life would surely adapt, such an event would amount to permanent, irreparable damage to Earth’s biodiversity. And, it means that human industry would be about as destructive as the largest of space rocks.“This is not saying that disaster occurs the next day,” Rothman told Phys.org. “It’s saying that, if left unchecked, the carbon cycle would move into a realm which would be no longer stable, and would behave in a way that would be difficult to predict. In the geologic past, this type of behavior is associated with mass extinction.”We could be facing trouble much earlier, though, and Rothman worries that the world may already be in dire straits by 2100.Rothman’s paper focused exclusively on the carbon cycle. It’s a system that balances the chemical output of photosynthesis — plants’ primary means of making energy — and respiration — the mechanism that animals and other complex life uses. Over time, carbon falls to the bottom of the ocean — either due to currents or the steady sifting of dead material and detritus from the waters above. That locks it away for millions of years, and works a planet-wide storage system.Over the past few hundred years, humans have been dredging up a lot of that excess carbon in the form of fossil fuels, and pumping it back out into the atmosphere. That’s more than overwhelmed Earth’s ability to sequester the element.Rothman used data from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that predicted how much carbon will hit the oceans in the coming decades. The IPCC looked at four possible outcomes for human carbon emissions, estimating the impact of each. The worst case scenario would dump over 500 gigatons of carbon into the oceans by 2100 — well over the critical threshold. The best case scenario wasn’t that much better though, adding a whopping 300 gigatons. If these data prove accurate, we’re in big trouble. Not that we already weren’t, but… yeah.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Stay on targetlast_img read more

Jury finds Oklahoma cop not guilty in shooting of black manJury finds Oklahoma cop not guilty in shooting of black man

first_imgTULSA, Okla. — A white Oklahoma police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black man last year was found not guilty Wednesday of first-degree manslaughter.Jurors acquitted Tulsa officer Betty Jo Shelby in the Sept. 16 shooting of 40-year-old Terence Crutcher. Shelby said she fired her weapon out of fear because she said he didn’t obey her commands to lie on the ground and appeared to reach inside his SUV for what she thought was a gun. Crutcher was unarmed.Prosecutors told jurors that Shelby overreacted. They noted Crutcher had his hands in their air and wasn’t combative — part of which was confirmed by police video taken from a dashboard camera and helicopter that showed Crutcher walking away from Shelby, hands held above his head.Shelby’s attorneys argued that in the two minutes before cameras began recording the encounter, Shelby repeatedly ordered Crutcher to stop walking away from her and get on the ground.Shelby also said she feared Crutcher was under the influence of PCP, a powerful hallucinogenic known as Angel Dust that makes users erratic, unpredictable and combative.last_img read more

Vancouver eyes selling old fire station sitesVancouver eyes selling old fire station sites

first_imgNow that Vancouver’s two new fire stations are up and running, the city has to decide what to do with the old buildings.The new and improved fire stations 1 and 2 opened Jan. 23. The existing Fire Station 1, previously at 900 W. Evergreen Blvd., is now at 2607 Main St. Fire Station 2 has been moved from 400 E. 37th St. to 2106 Norris Road.The two new stations cost the city $16 million. The sale of the old stations could help recoup some of that cost. Chris Malone, Vancouver’s finance and asset management manager, said that’s been the plan all along.The old stations were declared surplus property back in March 2015, opening the door for the city council to move forward with selling the two sites.Sale price estimates put Station 1 at $1.44 million and Station 2 at $430,000. The buildings would be sold “as is,” and the city would handle the sale internally via a bid and review process.last_img read more

AireSone Keeping track of your kid’s health is a lot easier when you have a wearable electronic stethoscope, and the AireSone Junior is exactly that.Shaped like a button, it slots into a cover designed to appeal to kids 3-years-old and above with a cutesy design such as a bear, an owl or a frog. You can then attach the AireSone Junior to the outfit around the chest area. There will also be interactive storylines related to the characters to convince kids to wear the badges willingly when they are awake.It tracks breathing and heart rate, and can detect wheezing and coughs, as well as alerting parents if it registers these symptoms, symptoms which can be a precursor to an asthma attack, especially when kids are sleeping. The AireSone Junior has a battery life of about 13 hours, and charges wirelessly.Singapore-based AEvice, the makers behind AireSone Junior, told me that the device detects what it calls “micro-wheezing”: tiny wheezes you don’t normally hear (note that it’s a word the company came up with to highlight how sensitive its devices are, and not an actual medical term). The company is currently working with doctors in Singapore and Australia to prescribe the device to vulnerable asthmatic children to help keep track of and manage their respiratory illness.It will retail for $199 (about £155 and AU$280), and ships in June this year.last_img read more

Back to the Future – The First Time Machine was a RefrigeratorBack to the Future – The First Time Machine was a Refrigerator

first_imgAs one of the defining movie franchises of the 1980s, Back To The Future is fondly remembered by a generation. So much so that its iconic time travelling car, the DeLorean DMC-12, featured recently in Ready Player One, Steven Spielberg’s pop culture-fueled sci-fi spectacular. Together with career-boosting turns from Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly and Christopher Lloyd as “Doc” Brown, it took the high concept movie to new heights, and spawned throwaway concepts that are talked about to this day.1982 De Lorean DMC12 coupe.

Photo by The Community – Pop Culture Geek CC BY 2.0Yet Marty’s adventures could have taken a very different turn had the original story been stuck to. The first film had been developed over several years, with the tricky subject of time travel leading writers Robert Zemeckis (who also directed) and Bob Gale to consider different options for their young, decade-hopping hero.Robert Zemeckis. Photo by Dick Thomas Johnson CC BY 2.0There’s something so perfect about the DeLorean that it seems unthinkable anything else would have been on the table. However, as The Huffington Post reported in 2015, the initial idea was a little less mobile. In fact it could be described as cool, but not in a good way.The first draft “set the story in 1982… the journey would have taken young Marty McFly to 1952. Originally, the time travel device was a beam of sorts which was powered by plutonium (and Coca-Cola) that effectively ‘zapped’ Marty back in time.”A red vintage coca cola vending machine.Plutonium and Coca-Cola doesn’t sound like the wisest of combinations but clearly the writers thought they were onto something. ‘52 was also a significant year in the calendar of American nuclear activity, as it “happened to have the last above ground atomic bomb detonation in the United States in Atkins, Nevada (something helpfully referenced in Marty’s history class earlier in the film).”Every Day Items Used As Movie PropsNow if the idea of a time jump powered by nuclear physics and a well-known soft drink sounds a little out there, how about the mode of transportation itself? Zemeckis and Gale were thinking less in terms of a vehicle. They applied the concept to… an appliance.Back In The Future Marty Mcfly at Comic Con.Marty McFly’s teeth would have been chattering, because he was due to shut himself inside a refrigerator for the jaunt through history. The atomic test came into play for the return trip. Instead of a clock tower hit by lightning, “the 1952 version of Emmett Brown… rigged up a special lead-lined refrigerator with the device attached to it so that Marty could ride out the atomic detonation inside the refrigerator while the blast would trigger the time travel device.”Emmett Brown from Back to the Future. Universal Studios Florida. Photo by Eliedion CC BY-SA 4.0It didn’t take a man of Emmett Brown’s genius to work out fridges and teenagers were not a good mix. Fearing youngsters might lock themselves in and suffocate, the element was dropped and audiences wound up with the classic image of heartthrob and hot wheels.DeLorean time machine at the Historic Auto Attractions museum in Roscoe, Illinois. Photo by Lautenbach – Flickr CC BY 2.0Many years later the bizarre idea was revived for another big screen American adventurer, this time Indiana Jones. Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment had produced Back To The Future and the chilling plot device had clearly struck a chord with the legendary director.Robert Zemeckis was afraid that kids would imitate the film and get trapped in refrigerators.For Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Harrison Ford’s Indy managed to astonish viewers by hiding in a refrigerator to protect himself from a nuclear blast, rather than travel through time in its wake. Pretty far-fetched stuff, but nothing compared to what Dr. Brown had in mind.Read another story from us: Olivia de Havilland turns 102! What is the ‘Gone With the Wind’ star doing now?It was only fitting that Back To The Future’s legacy came full circle to be part of Ready Player One and its VR Eighties-scape. Though if they’d pressed ahead with the initial storyline, there might well have been a fridge flying around with Donkey Kong and Chucky instead of a DeLorean.last_img read more

The cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) system uses a large-area detector that captures a 3-D extremity image in a single rotation that takes only 25 seconds.The latest version of Carestream’s CMAR 2 image viewing software is designed to:Increase workflow efficiency;Enhance volumetric post-processing compatibility with picture archiving and communication systems (PACS);Fulfill NEMA XR-29 standards compliance; andOffer new features for users in hospitals, imaging centers and orthopedic clinics.This software is free of charge for current customers and will be installed on new OnSight 3D extremity systems.The software makes it easier to view metal screws, plates, nails and other hardware. Both the original image and corrected image are always available to view and compare. A user selects a “moderate” or “complex” metal setting so Carestream’s image processing software can deliver an optimized view based on metal content. Metal artifact reduction can be activated prior to the scan or after the original reconstruction is complete. The software also reduces the halo effect and other artifacts that may appear in the image.Carestream also offers Administrative Analysis & Reporting Software as an optional software module that provides a digital dashboard for administrators and practice managers. Users can export information such as:Exam types;Minimum, maximum and average dose; andReasons for rejected exams and other data into an easy-to-use spreadsheet.Managers can use this information for quality control and technologist training.Dose is significantly reduced because only the affected body part is imaged. And since the patient’s head and body are not confined, patients do not experience the claustrophobia that often occurs with traditional CT systems. The compact extremity system can be installed in an exam room and plugs into a standard wall outlet.The Carestream OnSight 3D Extremity System is available in the United States, Europe and other countries.For more information: www.carestream.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) | August 06, 2019 Canon Medical Introduces Encore Orian MR Upgrade Program Canon Medical Systems USA Inc. is helping to provide low-cost patient care solutions for its customers with the launch… read more Sponsored Content | Case Study | Radiation Dose Management | August 13, 2019 The Challenge of Pediatric Radiation Dose Management Radiation dose management is central to child patient safety.

Rebels step up attacks on Colombia energy targetsRebels step up attacks on Colombia energy targets

first_img“After $8 billion of investment,” said Restrepo, “we’re staying.”___Associated Press writer Cesar Garcia in Bogota contributed to this report.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Associated PressBOGOTA (AP) – The port town of Tumaco on Colombia’s Pacific coast went dark for more than a week in early August after guerrillas toppled three electricity towers in the remote area.Rebel-planted land mines did even more damage, delaying the restoration of power while killing at least five people, including two workers trying to repair the towers, local authorities said.Such attacks on electricity infrastructure, gas pipelines and trains transporting coal occurred almost daily in the 1990s, and into the 2000s, as Colombia’s rebel groups targeted the energy industry either to extort funds or attack foreign companies considered to be exploiting the nation’s riches. Four benefits of having a wireless security system Top ways to honor our heroes on Veterans Day Similar security has accompanied construction of a new pipeline called Bicentenario, which is being guarded meter by meter, even from above with military drones, Cardenas said. The proposed pipeline is set to be the country’s longest, at 960 kilometers (597 miles), capable of carrying 450,000 barrels daily from the oil fields in Colombia’s west to the Caribbean port of Convenas, according to Ecopetrol, a majority partner in the project.Despite the patrols, the ELN in July briefly kidnapped two women working on the pipeline, releasing them 20 days later to the International Red Cross Committee.Nationwide, at least 5,000 uniformed security forces guard Colombia’s oil pipeline network, energy towers and even convoys of trucks transporting petroleum to refineries, said Cardenas.Pinzon announced Wednesday that the Defense Ministry is creating eight new battalions to shore up security of the nation’s infrastructure. A high-ranking official speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to comment publicly about national security issues said each battalion will be comprised of at least 1,200 troops, and three battalions are already operating.Despite the attacks and the mounting security burden, the companies say they have no intention of leaving the country. Sponsored Stories Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Comments   Share   The number of energy towers targeted by rebels rose from 39 in 2010 to 73 last year.Carbones del Cerrejon Limited’s rail line from its primary coal mine has suffered at least six attacks since January of this year, up from two in 2011, said Julian Gonzalez, the company’s vice president of public affairs. The 150-kilometer (93-mile) track stretches to Puerto Bolivar on the Caribbean, where coal is loaded onto ships bound for the United States and Europe.Alfredo Rangel of Colombia’s Security and Democracy Foundation, which studies internal conflicts, said the increase in attacks began about two years ago, spiking this year as the military reduced its offensive actions. Rangel said that according to his own calculations and press reports, there were as many as 1,800 such military operations in 2003, plunging to about 360 last year.Both Santos and Pinzon insist that the government has not let down its guard. According to Pinzon, 70 percent of the rebel activity occurs in just 50 of about 1,000 municipalities in the country.Still, energy companies are beefing up security to protect their facilities.The country’s largest crude oil field, Puerto Gaitan, is guarded by at least 800 soldiers located inside the vast complex where 14,000 people work, said Federico Restrepo, vice president of corporate relations for the Toronto-based company Pacific Rubiales Energy. The firm holds a 35 percent stake in Puerto Gaitan, which produces about 20 percent of the country’s daily production, set at an average of 918,000 barrels in August. Restrepo said none of the company’s Colombia operations have suffered attacks.center_img Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix 4 must play golf courses in Arizona No estimates exist on how much damage the sabotage causes annually, but if a peace agreement is signed, Colombia’s gross domestic product could grow an additional one or two percentage points, helping the country reach annual economic growth of 5 to 6 percent, according to Treasury Minister Mauricio Cardenas, a former minister of energy and mining.Cardenas downplayed the impact of the attacks but still acknowledged they have had a cost, preventing the production of at least 15,000 barrels of crude daily. He denied they were a key reason for Colombia’s failure to reach its production goal of a million barrels daily, saying bureaucratic delays in issuing environmental permits for oil projects were more to blame.Neither the ELN nor the FARC has commented on the recent increase of attacks.So far, the guerrillas have focused on infrastructure such as cargo trains and pipelines, leaving untouched facilities used to extract coal or pump oil from the ground. That’s still hurt overall petroleum production, slowed exports and delayed plans to bring electricity to entire communities.The attacks on pipelines have mushroomed by 253 percent, from 19 in the first half of 2011 to 67 in the same period this year, according to Defense Ministry data. There were 84 pipeline attacks last year, two less than the 86 recorded in 2002 when the FARC’s armed strength was unquestioned. Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day The attacks by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, the largest rebel force in the country, and the smaller National Liberation Front, or ELN, eventually fell off. But such rebel sabotage has been on the upswing again _ a sign to some that the guerrillas have grown desperate as their armed strength has waned. The attacks have also hit as Colombia tries to build its economic future around increased oil production.“The terrorists are still keeping it up to remain visible, undertaking certain limited, isolated actions that attempt to demonstrate a force that the country understands they do not have,” Defense Minister Jose Carlos Pinzon said Wednesday of the most recent attacks.Meanwhile, FARC representatives prepare for peace talks with Colombian authorities next month in Oslo, Norway, and have proposed a cease fire that could end the attacks on energy targets. President Juan Manuel Santos, however, has ruled out such a cease-fire, saying he has asked the military to instead step up their actions.“We’re not going to give up until we have a final accord, and that’s clear,” Santos said.The energy and mining sector represents about 70 percent of the country’s exports, with petroleum sales alone totaling at least $32 billion annually. The sector generates 12 percent of the country’s gross domestic product, money that’s key for development projects ranging from the construction of highways and bridges to low-income housing.

President Turkish EEZ incursion a second invasion Update3President Turkish EEZ incursion a second invasion Update3

first_imgPresident Nicos Anastasiades on Monday likened Turkey’s actions inside the island’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ) to a second invasion, as Nicosia sought an international arrest warrant for the crew of a Turkish vessel said to be poised to commence drilling for hydrocarbons.“It is clearly a violation of international law, or, as I could describe it, a second invasion, considering the violation of the Republic of Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone,” he said last night.The president said the government’s actions were in line with a policy that had been drafted in light of the dangers from any Turkish threats.Anastasiades said Turkey’s actions made it impossible to resume reunifications talks.“It is impossible for anyone to speak of peace under threat. And not just threats but an active violation of international law for the umpteenth time.”Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan remained defiant on Monday, saying he expected NATO to support his country’s rights in the eastern Mediterranean, despite the United States and European Union voicing concerns over Ankara’s plans.“The legitimate rights of Turkey and the northern Cypriot Turks over energy resources in the eastern Mediterranean are not open for argument. Our country is determined to defend its rights and those of Cypriot Turks,” he said. “We expect NATO to respect Turkey’s rights in this process and support us in preventing tensions.”Earlier on Monday, Foreign Minister Nicos Christodoulides said Nicosia was taking diplomatic steps to respond to Turkey’s latest incursion and was also seeking an international arrest warrant for the crew of the Turkish vessel.Speaking to reporters after a cabinet meeting at the palace, Christodoulides dismissed the notion that Nicosia was caught off guard by the appearance of the Turkish drillship Fatih in waters to the west of Paphos.“The necessary preparatory work was done by the Republic of Cyprus in relation to Turkey’s illegal actions in the Cyprus EEZ, and this is evident from the immediate and clear reaction of the EU,” Christodoulides said.The government, he added, is in constant communication with the European Commission as well as with EU member states.“Yesterday I spoke with the EU Commissioner for Enlargement, I’ve had contact with important capitals of EU member states who are conveying particular interest in the illegal acts within our EEZ, and tomorrow I shall be in Paris where this issue will be the top item on the agenda of my meetings there.”European Parliament President Antonio Tajani expressed concern over the developments and called on Turkey to refrain from illegal activities in Cyprus’ EEZ.“Turkey’s intention to drill within the EEZ of Cyprus is a violation of international law,” he said. “The Republic of Cyprus has the full and sovereign right to explore and exploit natural resources within its EEZ. We stand with Cyprus in safeguarding its rights underpinned by international and European law.”On Thursday Anastasiades will brief his European counterparts at the informal European Council to be held in Romania, Christodoulides said.“At the council, discussion will take place on specific actions on the legal, political and diplomatic levels which have been set in motion for a while now.”The president has also called a meeting of the National Council on Saturday to discuss the situation.Last Saturday Cypriot authorities submitted to the United Nations the coordinates for the boundaries of the EEZ and the continental shelf, based on the median line that is equidistant from the shores of Cyprus and Turkey.The coordinates would also be published in the government gazette, giving them the force of law.Christodoulides was asked why this had not been done before.He said that all administrations since 2004, based on advice from international law experts, had opted not to submit to the UN the coordinates for the EEZ and continental shelf, as that might have been used by Turkey as a pretext to engage in provocations.At any rate, Cyprus’ rights over its continental shelf are ipso facto, that is to say, automatic. There is no question over the rights of the Republic, the foreign minister stressed.In July 2014, he recalled, parliament passed a law specifying that the Cyprus maritime boundaries for the EEZ lie at the median line between the shores of the island and Turkey.“The coordinates merely denote the median line with greater precision,” he offered.On how actual Turkish drilling in the EEZ might be averted, Christodoulides said efforts would be focused in the EU sphere, where Cyprus has a comparative advantage.One course of action might be to ask for a revision of the EU-Turkey customs unions, or blocking Ankara’s access to EU pre-accession funds.The EU, the United States, Russia and the United Kingdom have already released statements expressing concern that Turkey’s latest action offshore Cyprus may stoke tensions in the region.Rejecting remarks by Federica Mogherini, the High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, the Turkish foreign ministry reiterated that Ankara will carry out the drilling “in line with its legal rights stemming from international law.”Meantime, with assistance of neighbouring nations, Nicosia is monitoring the movements of the Fatih drillship.The latest information indicates that it has not started drilling.According to Christodoulides, the government has for some time been well aware of Turkish intentions to conduct drilling offshore Cyprus, given repeated statements to that effect from Turkish officials.Until recently, Turkey had been unable to carry out drilling operations because they were unable to find oilfield services companies to assist them.That has now changed.“It is a negative development with serious ramifications,” the foreign minister noted.Although it was possible that foreign corporations were participating in the Turkish drilling operations, he ruled out any participation by any country on a government level.Also on Monday, authorities began procedures to have an international arrest warrant issued for the crew of the Turkish drillship.An application for a warrant was submitted on Monday to Nicosia district court, Undersecretary to the President Vasilis Palmas told a local radio station.Depending on the court’s decision, Cypriot authorities would then relay the international arrest warrant to Europol.On Friday, Turkish authorities issued a Navtex (navigational telex) advising that the drillship Fatih would be carrying out ‘drilling operations’ in an area west of Paphos from May 3 to September 3.The Fatih is being supported by three other vessels.Turkish media on Saturday cited Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu as saying the Fatih had started drilling in areas for which northern Cypriot authorities had issued a permit.MarineTraffic, a vessel tracking website, shows that the Fatih is currently stopped, at a location some 60km west of Paphos and a latitude just north of Peyia.Over the weekend authorities transmitted via Radio Cyprus a navigational warning to the Fatih, advising its crew that they are “conducting illegal operations in the exclusive economic zone and the continental shelf of the Republic of Cyprus.“Your actions are violating the international law and maritime safety procedures and you are committing serious criminal offences under the laws of the Republic of Cyprus.”Turkey responded with a broadcast describing Radio Cyprus as an “unauthorised station”.Although technically the Turkish drillship is operating in the Cypriot EEZ, it is located in an area that has not been licensed by Cyprus for hydrocarbons exploration.Citing unnamed government sources, daily Politis said that about six months ago the foreign minister had invited Ankara to engage in dialogue to delimit the respective EEZs of the two nations.Turkey rejected the approach, on the grounds it does not recognise the Republic of Cyprus. The Turkish response was given in written, the same report said.You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityWe protect our home with earthquake insuranceCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoIcePopMan Notices A Strange Hole In This Lake, So He Gets A Drone, Flies It Inside And Captures ThisIcePopUndo Britain ramps up preparations for “very real prospect” of no-deal BrexitUndoA grotesque choice of prime minister for Britain?UndoTales from the Coffeeshop: Lies, lies and holy revelationsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
