THE NATIONAL COORDINATION Group on Severe Weather has said emergency services, local authorities and State agencies “remain on high alert” today despite the improvement in weather conditions.There were no reports overnight of major episodes of flooding but Met Éireann has advised that the current threat of stormy weather from Wednesday onwards remains and rainfall will serve to top up rivers that have already reached capacity,Yesterday the group warned that this poses a heightened risk in slow moving rivers like the Shannon, the Barrow, Nore, Suir Slaney, Lee and Blackwater.Today the orange weather alert was lifted but authorities are continuing to monitor the position in relation to river levels.The ESB are also monitoring the levels on the rivers Liffey, Lee and Shannon and discharges are being managed in conjunction with local authorities. (Image: Irish Defence Forces/Facebook)The Defence Forces have also been on stand-by over the weekend, in case their assistance was needed in flood areas.“The public have been reminded to continue to follow the weather warning and to heed the safety messages of the authorities,” the group said today in a statement.Tomorrow the government task force on emergency planning will meet to discuss the situation.Read: Heavy rainfall over weekend ‘poses a major risk’ as rivers continue to rise>View: 18 of the best pictures (and 2 videos) from this week’s storms> read more
Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The Victorian Government is supporting the PanHellenic Games that will be held in Melbourne during the last weekend of November. In an event for the launch of the Games that was hosted in the Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne Victoria last Monday, the Minister of Sport, Recreation and Youth Affairs, James Merlino announced a $35,000 pledge on behalf of the government. Mr Merlino congratulated the World Council of Hellenes Abroad (SAE) of Oceania and the Far East for the initiative to organise the Games and wished them all the success. The Victorian Minister who will be the patron of the Games spoke about the great contribution of the Greek community to Victoria. “…there is little doubt that Victoria’s Greek community is one of the most significant influences in the dynamic, cosmopolitan society we enjoy today,” Mr Merlino said. “This announcement celebrates the wonderful culture and the vast contribution of our Greek community to this State,” he added.The PanHellenic Games will see about 600 sporting youth of Greek descent come from all over Australia and New Zealand to compete against each other for the three-day event taking place in Melbourne from November 27-29. The athletes will test their sporting talents in a range of events from basketball to judo, soccer, swimming, tae kwon do, tennis, track and field, water polo and wrestling. read more
En avion, les turbulences pourraient augmenter à cause du réchauffement climatiqueUne étude révèle que le réchauffement climatique pourrait entraîner une augmentation du nombre de turbulences en avion au cours des quarante prochaines années. Néanmoins, certains trajets seront plus concernés que d’autres.Vous appréhendez les voyages en avion ? Vous ne raffolez pas de ces petites turbulences qui font trembler l’appareil ? Eh bien, il serait temps de se rassurer car ces turbulences pourraient se faire encore plus présentes à l’avenir. C’est du moins ce qu’affirme une étude parue lundi dans la revue Nature Climate Change qui indique que les voyages en avion pourraient devenir bien moins confortables.En effet, selon ces travaux menés par des chercheurs britanniques, les turbulences que traversent parfois les avions devraient fortement augmenter en raison du réchauffement climatique au cours des quarante prochaines années. “Nos recherches suggèrent que nous verrons le signal “attachez vos ceintures” s’allumer plus souvent dans les décennies à venir”, indique l’un des deux auteurs de l’étude, Paul Williams, professeur à l’Université de Reading repris par Atlantico.fr.Néanmoins, il souligne que ce sont essentiellement les trajets passant par l’Atlantique nord qui seront concernés et que l’étude s’est surtout intéressée à la période hivernale, lorsque les turbulences sont les plus importantes. Comme l’explique le chercheur, “l’aviation est en partie responsable du changement climatique [en raison des colossales émissions de CO2]. Ironie du sort, le climat est en voie de prendre sa revanche en créant une atmosphère plus turbulente pour l’aviation”. Des turbulences plus fréquentes et plus fortes À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?Pour en arriver à cette conclusion, le Pr Williams et Manoj Joshi, de l’université d’East Anglia ont mis au point un modèle informatique du courant-jet (ou jet stream) qui suggère que d’ici 2050, le nombre d’importantes turbulences pourrait doubler et leur force augmenter de 10 à 40%. Un phénomène dû aux concentrations de dioxyde de carbone présentes dans l’air. “Les turbulences au sein du corridor transatlantique changent de manière significative lorsque la concentration en dioxyde de carbone dans l’atmosphère double”, justifie ainsi l’étude.Or, si “les avions sont construits pour résister à ce genre de turbulences”, certaines peuvent entrainer des dommages et causer une interruption des vols. “Les turbulences blessent des centaines de passagers et de membres d’équipage chaque année. Le coût total pour la société est de plus de 110 millions d’euros par an”, souligne le Dr Williams cité par le Telegraph. Leur augmentation pourrait donc avoir des implications bien plus sérieuses que des vols moins confortables.Toutefois, selon ses auteurs, d’autres travaux pour quantifier les impacts de l’évolution du climat sur les turbulences aériennes devront encore être conduits pour en savoir plus. Il s’agira notamment d’élargir les simulations à différents scénarios climatiques.Le 9 avril 2013 à 13:43 • Maxime Lambert read more
A Vancouver woman is in serious condition after a head-on crash that involved three vehicles near Battle Ground on Wednesday night.Tracy Bottari, 46, of Battle Ground was driving a 2006 Infinity G35 north on state Highway 503 at a high rate of speed about 7:15 p.m., according to Washington State Patrol.She crossed the center lane and struck a southbound 2002 Honda Civic, which caused the Civic to hit another vehicle, a 2015 Ford F-150, troopers reported.The driver of the pickup was not injured, but the drivers in the two other vehicles were.Sovannara Bou, 29, of Vancouver, the driver of the Civic, was taken to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center where she was listed in serious condition. Bottari was also taken to the hospital, but her condition was not available. She will be cited for speeding, troopers said. read more
Information courtesy of Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council.While the leaves on the trees have yet to turn color, and the cold blast of winter remains a distant memory to some, the change of seasons could yield new economic opportunities for Minnesota’s biodiesel industry.At a forum sponsored by the Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council, attendees listened as a diverse group of energy influencers described Bioheat, a blend of biodiesel and heating oil, as a 21st century heating oil that promises to increase the diversity of the U.S. energy supply. In the soybean fields of Minnesota, farmers are growing that diversity.“Biodiesel has earned its stripes as a transportation fuel,” said Tom Slunecka, CEO of the Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council. “The heating oil market represents an exciting opportunity for Minnesota to continue its role as a leader in renewable energy.”New markets and uses for biodiesel offer significant potential for U.S. soybean farmers and the entire biodiesel industry. Within the biodiesel market, soybean oil has a 50 percent share. Heating oil is well established in many of the New England states such as Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire as heating oil has traditionally provided an economical way to meet the heating needs of homes, multi-family dwellings, and small businesses. A homeowner can use 1000 gallons over the season.Bioheat has positive environmental attributes. According to a report released by the National Oilheat Research Alliance (NORA), biodiesel blends at 20% (B-20) with ultra-low sulfur heating oil (ULSHO) are lower in Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHG) than natural gas when evaluated over 100 years, while blends of 2% (B-2) or more are lower in GHG than natural gas when evaluated over twenty years.The report also found that biodiesel blended at 5 percent would require approximately 300 million gallons of biodiesel produced per year. Assuming the biodiesel industry average of 50 million gallons per year per plant, Bioheat would be responsible for 6 plants built and continuously operated. Thus, nearly 270 full time jobs can be directly attributed to Bioheat.“Biodiesel blending into home heating oil has proven to be a winner,” said Paul Nazzaro, CEO of the Nazzaro Group and Advisor to the National Biodiesel Board. “With a decade of technical and market positioning on the record, continued support from biodiesel stakeholders like Minnesota Soybean will be imperative to keep this momentum intact to ensure biodiesel producers have a healthy and growing market to move their production allocations long term.”To learn more, visit MNsoybean.org. read more

Apple Inc enters into motion control domain with its new ‘Accessibility’ feature of switching to head movements in the latest operating system iOS 7.Developers at 9to5mac were tipped about the new feature of iOS 7 by an anonymous tipster.In the Accessibility settings page, options of head movement gestures are available. The Apple user will be able to control his/her iPhone or iPad by tilting their heads to the left and right.After turning on the feature, iOS 7 runs through every option available on the screen once by highlighting the option with a black border.To select the option, the user needs to jerk left once. And with a right head movement the user goes to the home screen.It is exciting to see Apple entering the motion detecting arena. Apple CEO Tim Cook defined the latest operating system as ‘the biggest change to iOS since the introduction of the iPhone’, at the annual Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference 2013 (WWDC). Apple patented the newest iOS 7 as faster and smarter.However, there is a major drawback. The feature goes step-by-step manner to every option on the screen which makes the process slower. This feature could meet a dead end whenever it is launched this fall.Moreover, motion detecting smartphones are not new. Samsung’s latest Galaxy S4 uses facial recognition technology built into its front-facing camera to automatically scroll web content up or down or turn an e-book page based on the user’s eye movement. It automatically pauses and plays video depending on whether the user is looking directly at the screen or not.And recently, Lava Mobiles also launched a smartphone that uses hand gestures to click photos, change music tracks similar to Samsung’s Air View motion control feature in Samsung Galaxy S4. read more
@SouthwestAir #WN957 diverts and makes emergency landing in CLE due to busted window pic.twitter.com/OJMZ5KTyMS— Chaikel (@ChaikelK) May 2, 2018Passengers on a Southwest Airlines plane first heard a loud pop and then scurried away when they saw a jagged crack in a window that forced the jet to land in Cleveland on Wednesday.Some on board immediately thought back to just two weeks ago when a jet engine blew apart and broke a window, leading to a woman being partially sucked out and killed aboard another Southwest flight.“It made you nervous because something like this just happened,” said passenger Paul Upshaw of Chicago, who was about two seats from the window. “We didn’t know if it was going to crack open.”There were no reports of injuries after Flight 957 heading from Chicago to New Jersey landed safely Wednesday after making an abrupt turn toward Cleveland while over Lake Erie, according to tracking data from FlightAware.com.Passengers on @SouthwestAir #Southwest flight 957 being told to deboard with their belongings and to reboard another aircraft. pic.twitter.com/xkklt1rnpV— Eliott Wolbrom (@ewolbrom) May 2, 2018Some of the plane’s 76 passengers told The Associated Press that the crew quickly checked the window near an emergency exit and handled the situation smoothly.“People just started scattering,” said Upshaw, who added there was no yelling or screaming. “We didn’t panic.”Dallas-based Southwest said that the plane was diverted to examine damage to one of the three layers in the window, but didn’t immediately release details on how it was broken. Photos taken by passengers and posted on social media showed one window with a large, jagged crack.Southwest Airlines spokeswoman Brandy King said the plane never lost cabin pressure — which would have triggered oxygen masks to drop down for passengers — and that the pilots did not declare an emergency before landing.There were no other mechanical problems with the Boeing 737, which was taken out of service, King said. The plane was built in 1998, and King said it has flown about 40,000 “cycles” or flights, “but the damaged window had been previously replaced and continues to receive regular checks as part of our maintenance program.” She said it was inspected last month.Rich Robinson, a sheriff’s deputy from Sandwich, Illinois, said when the window cracked, everybody in that area hit the button for the flight attendant.“She went running back right away, saw it, and everybody cleared out from those couple of rows,” he said.Breaking News: @mickychinn just sent me this picture of (another!)blown out outer-window on his @SouthwestAir Flight 957 from Midway to Newark. Plane just emergency-landed into Cleveland. #Southwest, what is going on? Everyone seems safe and unhurt. Kudos to the pilots and staff! pic.twitter.com/dszdee3NBU— Eliott Wolbrom (@ewolbrom) May 2, 2018The timing of the incident could hardly be worse for Dallas-based Southwest, the nation’s fourth-biggest airline. Airline executives said last week they have seen ticket sales slow since the April 17 engine failure than sent debris flying into a plane, breaking a window and killing a passenger, 43-year-old Jennifer Riordan of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Southwest estimates the drop in sales will cost it between $50 million and $100 million.Robert Mann, an airline consultant and former American Airlines executive, said windows are periodically polished to remove crazing, the formation of tiny cracks from exposure to chemicals and the sun’s rays. He said he couldn’t recall a similar incident caused by crazing and that the pilots were right to make a quick landing.The window on the flight that landed in Philadelphia blew out after being hit by a loose engine part. Riordan died of injuries suffered after she was partially sucked out.After the Philadelphia emergency landing, the Federal Aviation Administration ordered inspections of more jet engines. The National Transportation Safety Board believes one of the blades snapped on the Southwest flight, hurling debris that broke a window.Boeing declined to identify the supplier that manufactured the windows on its 737-700s, the model involved in Wednesday’s incident and last month’s fatal accident.

(Phys.org) —It was a big week for scientists studying the cosmos as a radio-burst discovery deepens astrophysics mystery—a very short burst of radio waves indicates a mysterious pulse came from the outer regions of space. And in a similar effort, physicists came a step closer to finding mysterious sources of energy bursts—researchers reported finding a burst beneath the Big Dipper that might lead to identifying the source of the energetic particles. Also an artificial spacetime experiment could show tantalizing effects of gravitational waves—physicists are finding ways to recreate spacetime geometries in labs that allow for better analysis. And despite its age, an old probe is still revealing new information as the sun sends more ‘tsunami waves’ to Voyager 1. Researchers monitoring the probe reported that it experienced a shock wave due to a burst from the sun approximately a year earlier, confirming that the probe is in interstellar space. And finally, Hubble sees a spiral bridge of young stars between two ancient galaxies—astronomers with the project report the discovery of a 100,000-light-year-long structure with a mysterious origin. Citation: Best of Last Week – Two mysterious bursts from space, new developments with batteries and fingertip reader for the blind (2014, July 14) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2014-07-week-mysterious-space-batteries-fingertip.html It was a pretty big week for researchers looking to make better batteries, too, as one team announced sand-based lithium ion batteries that outperform standard batteries by three times, while other engineering researchers developed a next-generation battery—a team at the University of Alberta described their research that involves using carbon nanomaterials to provide better power options to consumers. The hope is that soon we will all have batteries that charge faster and last longer than the lithium-ion based batteries of today.Also last week, a team of researchers tried to explain how antioxidants can accelerate cancers, and why they don’t protect against them—a number of clinical trials have dashed the hopes of health conscious individuals who have looked to antioxidants as a way to live longer, healthier lives. Now they have some idea why it hasn’t worked.In the really cool innovations department, an MIT finger device reads to the blind in real time. It fits on the end of a finger and as the finger moves over printed words on a page, the device reads out loud what is written giving those who cannot see the ability to read standard books, magazines, menus, etc. Might be helpful also for older people whose vision isn’t what it once was.And finally, in a bit of disturbing news, research finds an association between certain pain relievers and heart attack. A team at the University of Florida found that post-menopausal women taking NSAIDs (or non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs) had an elevated risk of having a stroke or heart attack. Yikes.

An international team of physicists using the University of Utah-operated Telescope Array near Delta, Utah, say their discovery of the hotspot should narrow the search for the mysterious source or sources of ultrahigh-energy cosmic rays, which carry more energy than any other known particle in the universe.

Kolkata: West Bengal is a leader when it came to cooperative movement in the country, state Finance Minister Amit Mitra said Monday. He said in West Bengal, Nadia district excelled and has won recognition from the Union government. Mitra highlighted the stellar growth achieved under the Trinamool Congress (TMC) government in terms of disbursals to coperatives and self help groups (SHGs) at the inauguration of the centenary year of the state cooperative banks’ celebration and ‘Samabay mela’. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal life Mitra however, evaded a question on high bad loans of the West Bengal State Cooperative Agriculture & Rural Development Bank whose gross and net non performing assets (NPA) stood at 23.27 per cent and 17.12 per cent, respectively, as on March 2018. Mitra said credit deposit ratio of the cooperative bank was 81.16 per cent which was “exceedingly good”. Cooperative banks, which play a crucial role in agriculture and rural development, extended crop loan of Rs 1,388 crore during 2010-11 but the same has jumped to Rs 3,300 crore now, Mitra said. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killed Similarly, loan to SHGs was at Rs 129 crore when the TMC government took over and it has been now increased to Rs 612 crore, he said. Paddy procurement has also jumped to 5.08 lakh MT now from 1.97 lakh MT in 2010-11. Department of Cooperation Minister Arup Roy said the government has taken initiatives to expand the cooperative banks in 710 gram panchyats of of which 50 was inaugurated on Monday. read more
September 28, 2011 As intriguing a device as the new, low-cost Kindle Fire tablet PC might be, for businesses the bottom line will not be about the Fire itself, but the software that runs on the Fire.Jeff Bezos channeled his inner Steve Jobs today with a splashy, Apple-like media fest for his hot new, lower-cost iPad killer, the Kindle Fire tablet ($199). This 7-inch, Android-based touch-activated flat-panel PC is strictly middle of the road when it comes to business tablets. Smallish, not bad — but not great — screen, bland design husky 14.6 ounces in weight, no camera, slowish processor and an utterly commoditized Android OS experience. If history is any indication, all the hype over the half-the-cost-of-an-iPad $199 retail price probably poses no threat to Cupertino. Just ask Microsoft, Dell, HP, Toshiba, Viewsonic, and dozens of other low-cost hardware and software makers on how their cheaper-is-better strategy is working against Apple. The hardware “story” here is no story at all.The news for business users is with a crafty bit of today’s announcement: Amazon said that the Fire will also support its own proprietary browser called Silk. Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Silk, according to company executives, said it would be the world’s first “split” browser. That is, the Web information displayed on the Fire will be split between stuff stored on the tablet and stuff stored on Amazon’s vast back-end Web computer infrastructure. Amazon execs claim — and there is legitimate networking science to back up these notions — that this split approach will allow Amazon to move complex Web content faster and easier. And in the process deliver a vastly improved Web experience.And suddenly, oh boy is Apple vulnerable.Considering that Apple’s coming iPhone product rollout will be as much about its own Web-based content service called iCloud, that aims to connect Apples users to all their digital files across devices, Amazon is posing a fascinating threat with the Kindle Fire running a fast Silk browser. If Amazon can deliver a richer Web and experience, it will be in an enviable position. It will be able to do something Apple cannot: offer better way to buy. Considering how awful Apple’s own buying experience is on iTunes, the Silk-enabled Kindle Fire could be just the kind of improvement that can attract attention and customers on the Web.Bottom line: If Amazon can deliver on the promise of the Fire as a better online retail experience, Apple better be careful here. Jeff Bezos really could have a retail barn-burner on his hands with the Kindle Fire.

D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ “Before my senior year I knew, depending on how my season went, Ihad a shot,” he said. “I played well my whole year and comingtowards the end of the year I thought I might have a shot. As itprogressed in the offseason, I could tell I would get some interest.”Although Parker is done wearing the Sun Devil pitchfork, he stillstays attentive to what’s happening with his former team amid thetransition led by new head coach Todd Graham.“I’m trying to stay close and on top of it, I try to keep up with someof my friends that are still there,” Parker said. “But at the same timeit’s hard — I’ve got my own stuff going on even though it’s only tento fifteen minutes away.“I’m excited to see how they do this year and how the quarterbackbattle shakes out. I think they’re going to do well this year.” – / 16 What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke “It’s been like two months, it’s nice,” Parker said following his firstfull training camp practice as an NFL player Thursday. “I’m going tolet it go at least to the end of camp, and if I like it, I’ll keep it. Ifnot, I’ll take it off, but it lets me lazy through camp at least.”Facial landscaping is the only way an undrafted rookie can displaylaziness during training camp if he hopes to make the team.Getting comfortable quickly is also key, and Parker feels pretty atease with what’s been presented so far.“I feel pretty comfortable. We got a lot of work in during the OTAsand mini-camps over summer, so I at least got exposed to most ofthe defense,” Parker said. “Coming out here, I just have to getadjusted to the speed and the physicality of the game.”Heading into the 2011 college season, not many thought thatParker would be headed to the NFL. The Chandler Hamilton HighSchool alum had started only five games in his first three seasons atASU.

If you haven’t yet watched this week’s roller-coaster finale of “The Handmaid’s Tale” — no spoilers here — the show’s creator has a suggestion.“Get a couple bottles of Scotch first,” quips executive producer and writer Bruce Miller.Miller and his cast and crew were saying “Praise be” — figuratively, at least — on Thursday as the show reaped 20 Emmy nods, up seven from last year, when the show took the prize for best drama series. Not surprisingly, the show’s star, last year’s best actress Elisabeth Moss, was nominated again, as were seven other actors in supporting or guest roles.One of them — Samira Wiley — learned of her Emmy nod onstage as she announced other nominees. Television Academy chairman Hayma Washington came out to give her the news.Wiley called the show’s big haul “a real graduation” from the year before. And she had high praise for Moss. “Elisabeth makes everyone who she’s in a scene with a better actor,” she said. “And I can speak personally about that. I don’t know how she does what she does.”Miller, nominated as a writer as well as executive producer of the dystopian sci-fi drama, noted that while many viewers have drawn parallels with real-world current events, he tries to keep the focus on the show’s main character, Moss’ June, and her world in Gilead.“You want to be in the world, so you know when you do a show and talk about people being separated from their children, what that’s going to mean to people in the world,” he said. “We’re all news junkies, political junkies, but I think we really try to think about what happens to June and what happens in Gilead, and really make that work, and then you have the chance that people apply it to their life today.”The best guide, he said, has been the writing of Margaret Atwood — the Canadian author of the 1985 novel on which the series is based.“The reason the book lasted so long is that it’s specifically about this woman and this world, and (though) not a conscious metaphor for our world, it just seems to keep applying to our world,” Miller said. “That’s the genius of Margaret.”And, even though the show goes well beyond what’s in the book, he said, “the world that Margaret has created is so complete and full that in some ways, I don’t feel that we’re ever going beyond the book, I feel like we’re just pushing it to different edges and corners and dynamics that are set up by the book. In that way I feel safe and guided by Margaret … I feel confident that what I am doing, even if it’s not written on the page, is written between the lines.”“The Handmaid’s Tale” aired its second season finale this week — an episode with a shocker ending that capped an equally intense season. Wiley, who plays Moira, said she hadn’t brought herself to watch yet.“Hearing everyone’s reaction, I think that it is exactly what we wanted,” said the former “Orange is the New Black” actress. “It’s a big show. There are a lot of issues. It’s been hard this season I think for some people to watch. But hopefully it just sets it up for us to come back next year with a bang as well.” by Nicole Evatt And Jocelyn Noveck, The Associated Press Posted Jul 13, 2018 7:07 am PDT Last Updated Jul 13, 2018 at 8:00 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email This image released by Hulu shows Alexis Bledel in a scene from “The Handmaid’s Tale.” Bledel was nominated Thursday for an Emmy for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series.

The Animal Party said on Tuesday with the help of an herpetologist it had stepped in to save a snake trapped in an empty pool for three days.The party said their intervention was necessary “after the failure of almost all government departments to respond.”“The black snake (female) was on the verge of death, due to its three days in the empty pool and the extreme heat in the cement pool,” the party said.The party was contacted by a resident of Pyrga, Larnaca, who reported that a snake nearby has been trapped in a pool for three days.The man asked for help on what to do to save the reptile after he had contacted the fire services, who replied that they only take action when the life of an animal is at risk, and the police headquarters, who referred him to Larnaca police station who also claimed this incident is not their responsibility.He then informed the Animal Party who reported they called several other authorities. When contacted, the department of the environment suggested the game fund, who also didn’t act but suggested a private individual who deals with such cases.The Larnaca veterinary services whom the party called next told the caller the Pera Orinis veterinary services are in charge. However, officials in Pera Orinis said they don’t have the staff and are also not responsible. They informed the party there had been a similar incident at a school in the area and they would try and find out who was called to help at the time.In an earlier announcement, the animal party noted the problems regarding the welfare and protection of animals.“As a result of all the above, the Cyprus Animal Party would once again like to emphasise the importance of creating a commissioner for animal welfare to put an end to this situation and the fragmentation of responsibilities,” they said. “At the end of the day, our innocent and defenceless animals pay for it.”You May LikeCBS NewsThe Safest (And Most Dangerous) Travel DestinationsCBS NewsUndowww.healthynewsinformation.comIphone Tips And Tricks You Most Likely Didn’t Knowwww.healthynewsinformation.comUndoBuzzSuperTake a Look Inside Oprah Winfrey’s MansionBuzzSuperUndo House rejects presidential veto over repossession lawUndoIran’s Revolutionary Guards publish purported exchange with British warshipUndoHeroes’ welcome for Israeli teens after woman detained for false rape claim (Update 2)Undoby Taboolaby Taboola read more
