  1. Eric J. Brandt, Tammy Chang, Cindy Leung, John Z. Ayanian, Brahmajee K. Nallamothu. Food Insecurity Among Individuals With Cardiovascular Disease and Cardiometabolic Risk Factors Across Race and Ethnicity in 1999-2018. JAMA Cardiology, 2022; DOI: 10.1001/jamacardio.2022.3729

A Michigan Medicine team analyzed data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey representing 312 million American adults between 1999 and 2018, finding that 38% of people with cardiovascular disease were food insecure in 2017-2018. That number has more than doubled from two decades earlier, when the rate of food insecurity was 16.3%. The findings are published in JAMA Cardiology.

“Food insecurity is a common problem among people with cardiovascular disease, and we are seeing that issue become even more prevalent in recent years,” said Eric J. Brandt, M.D., M.H.S., FACC, lead author of the study and a cardiologist at the University of Michigan Health Frankel Cardiovascular Center.

“We believe there is a two-way relationship here. Individuals who are food insecure may have increased risk for cardiovascular disease, and vice versa. When one acquires heart disease, it impacts one’s risk for developing socioeconomic problems that could reduce access to adequate and quality food. Food insecurity can often occur with other social determinants of health, such as poor transportation access or access to healthcare, which further compounds this relationship.”

In the overall population, Black and Hispanic adults were more likely to report food insecurity. Since 2011, 24% of Hispanic adults and 18% of Black adults were food insecure, compared to 8% of Asian adults and 13% of white adults.

Researchers conclude that cardiovascular disease is associated with a higher risk for food insecurity. Those adults were more than two times likely to be food insecure than those without the cardiovascular disease.

“Food insecurity has the potential to exacerbate existing racial and ethnic health disparities,” Brandt said. “But there is also a public realization here that differences in cardiovascular outcomes across races and ethnicities aren’t related to the racial or ethnic origin of an individual, rather more to the social experience of an individual. In this broader viewpoint, having had a cardiovascular event could have a major impact on one’s social circumstance that places them at risk for food insecurity and other socioeconomic difficulties.”

Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death in the United States, and diet is the greatest contributor to death from such disease — accounting for over 400,000 deaths in 2016, according to The US Burden of Disease Collaborators.

Those experiencing food insecurity are more likely to shoulder a greater burden from diet-related cardiovascular disease. They are also more likely to be stressed and not take prescription medication to treat cardiometabolic risk factors, such as diabetes and high blood pressure.

As food insecurity remains a potent social determinant of health, researchers say it’s important for clinicians and health systems to use validated screening techniques to detect food insecurity among patients.

“Healthcare providers can impact the health and overall wellbeing of their patients by addressing food insecurity,” said co-author Tammy Chang, M.D., M.P.H., M.S., family physician at U-M Health and co-director of the National Clinician Scholars Program at the U-M Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation.

“More patients than you may think are impacted by food insecurity. A team-based approach including social workers, case managers and social service departments can help patients get connected with local resources. If we are serious about promoting health, healthcare providers need to ensure people have access to healthy foods and don’t go hungry.”

Catalytic deconstruction of waste polyethylene with ethylene to form propylene. Science, 2022; 377 (6614): 1561 DOI: 10.1126/science.add1088

But a new process developed at the University of California, Berkeley, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) could change all that. The process uses catalysts to break the long polyethylene (PE) polymers into uniform chunks — the three-carbon molecule propylene — that are the feedstocks for making other types of high-value plastic, such as polypropylene.

The process, admittedly in the early stages of development, would turn a waste product — not only plastic bags and packaging, but all types of PE plastic bottles — into a major product in high demand. Previous methods to break the chains of polyethylene required high temperatures and gave mixtures of components in much lower demand. The new process could not only lower the need for fossil fuel production of propylene, often called propene, but also help fill a currently unmet need by the plastics industry for more propylene.

“To the extent they get recycled, a lot of polyethylene plastics get turned into low-grade materials. You can’t take a plastic bag and then make another plastic bag with the same properties out of it,” said John Hartwig, UC Berkeley’s Henry Rapoport Chair in Organic Chemistry. “But if you can take that polymer bag back to its monomers, break it down into small pieces and repolymerize it, then instead of pulling more carbon out of the ground, you use that as your carbon source to make other things — for example, polypropylene. We would use less shale gas for that purpose, or for the other uses of propene, and to fill the so-called propylene gap.”

Polyethylene plastics make up about one-third of the entire plastics market worldwide, with more than 100 million tons produced yearly from fossil fuels, including natural gas obtained by hydraulic fracturing, often called shale gas.

Despite recycling programs — recyclable PE products are designated with plastic numbers 2 and 4 — only about 14% of all polyethylene plastic products are recycled. Because of their stability, polyethylene polymers are difficult to break down into their component parts, or depolymerize, so most of the recycling involves melting it and molding it into other products, like yard furniture, or burning it as fuel.

Depolymerizing polyethylene and turning into proplylene is a way of upcycling — that is, producing higher-value products from essentially zero-value waste, while reducing the use of fossil fuels.

Hartwig and his colleagues will publish the details of their new catalytic process this week in the journal Science.

Two types of catalysts

Hartwig specializes in using metal catalysts to insert unusual and reactive bonds into hydrocarbon chains, most of which are petroleum based. Novel chemical groups can then be added at these reactive bonds to form new materials. The hydrocarbon polyethylene, which typically occurs as a polymer chain of perhaps 1,000 ethylene molecules — each ethylene is composed of two carbon and four hydrogen atoms — provided his team with a challenge because of its general non-reactivity.

With a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to investigate new catalytic reactions, Hartwig and graduate students Steven Hanna and Richard J. “RJ” Conk came up with the idea of breaking two carbon-hydrogen bonds on polyethylene with a catalyst — initially, an iridium catalyst and, later, with platinum-tin and platinum-zinc catalysts — to create a reactive carbon-carbon double bond, which would serve as an Achilles’ heel. With this chink in the armor of the polymer’s carbon-hydrogen bonds, they could then unravel the polymer chain by reaction with ethylene and two additional catalysts that react cooperatively.

“We take a saturated hydrocarbon — all carbon-carbon single bonds — and remove a few molecules of hydrogen from the polymer to make carbon-carbon double bonds, which are more reactive than carbon-carbon single bonds. A few people had looked at that process, but nobody had achieved it on a true polymer,” Hartwig said. “Once you’ve got that carbon-carbon double bond, then you use a reaction called olefin metathesis, which was the subject of a Nobel Prize in 2005, with ethylene to cleave at the carbon-carbon double bond. Now, you’ve taken this long-chain polymer, and you’ve broken it into smaller pieces that contain a carbon-carbon double bond at the end.”

Addition of a second catalyst, made of palladium, enabled propylene molecules (three-carbon molecules) to be repeatedly clipped off the reactive end. The result: 80% of the polyethylene was reduced to propylene.

“Once we have a long chain with a carbon-carbon double bond at the end, our catalyst takes that carbon-carbon double bond and isomerizes it, one carbon in. Ethylene reacts with that initial isomerized product to make propylene and a nearly identical, just shorter, polymer with a double bond at the end. And then it does the same thing again and again. It walks one step in, cleaves; walks in, cleaves; walks in and cleaves until the whole polymer is cut into three-carbon pieces. From one end of the chain, it just chews down on the chain and spits off propylenes until there is no chain left.”

The reactions were conducted in a liquid solution with soluble, or “homogeneous,” catalysts. The researchers are currently working on a process using non-soluble, or “heterogeneous,” catalysts to achieve the same result, since solid catalysts can be reused more easily.

The group demonstrated that the process works with a variety of PE plastics, including translucent milk bottles, opaque shampoo bottles, PE packaging and the hard black plastic tops that link aluminum can four-packs. All were efficiently reduced to propylene, with only coloring agents having to be removed.

Hartwig’s lab also recently used innovative catalysis to create a process that turns polyethylene bags into adhesives, another valuable product. Together, these new processes could make a dent in the proliferating piles of plastic that end up in landfills, rivers and, ultimately, the oceans.

“Both are far from commercialization,” he said. “But it is easy to see how this new process would convert the largest amount of plastic waste to a huge chemical feedstock — with much further development, of course.”

In the interview, LTO expresses itself for the first time in favor of extensification as a new main direction. Van der Tak does, however, keep room for highly productive agriculture that can help conserve nature, especially elsewhere. He does not want to say what the relationship between in- and extensive agriculture should be.

The turnaround is remarkable and seems to be prompted by the nitrogen crisis that has been plaguing the Netherlands for 3.5 years now. In political reality, intensive agriculture – formerly the pride of the Netherlands – has come into a bad light because of the local nature damage.

However, extensification has another drawback. Due to its small, densely populated and intensively used country, the Netherlands does not have a suitable market position for this. Between 70 and 96% of the volume of our main agricultural products is eaten abroad. Exports will come to a standstill if the volume becomes too expensive because in the expensive Netherlands (with by far the highest agricultural land prices in Europe) the political wind is against highly productive agriculture.

In order to be able to supply the products of intensified agriculture abroad in line with the market, there is de facto only one solution conceivable.

Dutch taxpayers will have to finance the consumption of foreign consumers for life because of the high costs of establishing a residence in the Netherlands. Even if neighboring countries (which eat 80% of our exports) extensify in accordance with our standards, neighboring countries will also be able to produce at lower costs with the same standards and take over the volume of Dutch agricultural production. The interview with Van der Tak does not address that economic issue.

Erwin Wunnekink, the chairman of the LTO dairy farming department, seems to do that. An app is currently circulating with the text that his department is “highly unhappy” with the statements made by Sjaak van der Tak in the interview. Wunnekink acknowledges that a “politically driven extensification campaign” is underway. “However”, says Wunnekink, “fewer animals per hectare is not necessarily a way to achieve goals”. Wunnekink proposes a different path than a political turnaround: “Problems, impact and supported solutions must come together and only when everything has been thoroughly thought through and discussed (including with our members!) can we determine our commitment. As a department, we are steadily working on this together with our partners and stakeholders. I am convinced that as a department we are building with the right foundations.” According to Wunnekink, extensification and shrinkage can “be a consequence of the policy”, but they are “not necessarily the solution to the problem”.

It can be said that the reaction of the department chairman to the national chairman is a sign of a choice that has not yet been made in the LTO house.

Later in the day, chairman Van der Tak also responded with an app. Van der Tak states that Trouw framed him.

I see a lot of reactions to the interview in Trouw. In our vision for the future, LTO sees several routes for the transition in the sector. Extensification is one of them, but emphatically not the only direction. There is also room for intensive livestock farming. As I indicate in the interview, many forms of agriculture will continue to exist. In an interview you don’t choose which headline comes up. It’s not my wording, but the journalist’s interpretation. That is why I would like to underline it in this message: I see several transition paths for the next ten years. That’s what I shared in this article and I invite everyone to read past the headline. In addition, my unconditional support for all our farmers and horticulturists in their business development remains.

Extensification is one of them, but emphatically not the only direction. There is also room for intensive livestock farming. As I indicate in the interview, many forms of agriculture will continue to exist. In an interview you don’t choose which headline comes up. It’s not my wording, but the journalist’s interpretation. That is why I would like to underline it in this message: I see several transition paths for the next ten years. That’s what I shared in this article and I invite everyone to read past the headline. In addition, my unconditional support for all our farmers and horticulturists in their business development remains.
– Sjaak van der Tak

Businessman Elon Musk is the driver of Hyperloop, and “fifth mode of transport” which he introduced to the world after months of teasing in 2013.

The original technical document described a system of pressurized tubes that would propel the capsules for all the USA at speeds of 700 miles per hour.

But the document turned out to be little more than an elaborate sketch on the back of the napkinwith engineers and transportation experts pointing to serious structural problems in the plan and noting that costs had been drastically underestimated.

The company in charge Hyperloop so far it has not been able to produce a single mile of fully operational trackand Musk himself has diverted his ambitions to simply building tunnels for cars.

When Musk first described his Hyperloop supersonic vacuum tube transportation system in 2013, he proposed a line of Los Angeles to San Francisco that would replace a busy air route.

The quasi-trainMoving almost frictionlessly through an underground vacuum tube, it would carry 7.4 million people a year in each direction.

Hyperloop capsule.

Underground capsules with humans

In theory, a electric compressor fan at the front of the pod would transfer high-pressure air from the front to the rear to ensure the pod does not slow down due to wind resistance buildup.

Each “capsule” (i.e. train car) would have capacity for a minimum of 28 passengers and three carsand trains would leave every two minutes.

It was, to say the least, bold, and it seemed like Musk intended to do it, or at least try to.

Your scheme of 58 pages of the project laid out big plans and perfect comfort for passengers on the 350-mile subway ride between California’s two major cities.

“The interior of the capsule is specifically designed with safety and comfort of passengers,” Musk wrote.

“The seats conform well to the body to maintain comfort during high speed accelerations experienced during the trip. Beautiful scenery will be displayed in the cabin and each passenger will have access to their own personal entertainment system,” she described.

The insistence of Elon Musk

Musk has not given up on the idea of ​​the Hyperloop. Keep trying to revive iteven after finding little interest from the states and municipalities that would be the entities that would buy said system.

The Boring Companythe company with which Musk began chasing his impossible dream, continues to push a version of underground public transportation that relies on vacuum tube technology that would be prohibitively expensive, as well as scientifically unfeasible.

In April, Musk announced that he had obtained $675 million in venture funding for The Boring Company, putting its value at $5.7 billion.

The new financing, the company said, would allow it to solve traffic, beautify cities and enable point-to-point transport.

Some in the media and the scientific community they are beginning to realize the technological and economic infeasibility of Musk’s idea.

American theoretical astrophysicist Ethan Siegel wrote in Big Think about why these vacuum tube rides can’t work.

Scientific and political objections

If the speeds over 700 miles per hour that Musk had been touting, then “routine nausea and vomiting should be the expected result” for the humans inside. At lower speeds it is too expensive.

Like building a colony on mars (which Musk also wants to ask), the bigger question might be willpower: how much do we want it?

The political questions are even greater than the scientific problems. However, The Boring Company has pretty lofty goals, especially for a company that after a decade has exactly one potential client.

It is the city of Las Vegaswho is considering replacing his failing monorail with a vacuum tube system.

But this is not like Twitter o Teslawhich are based more on marketing and public perception than on political alignments.

Perhaps Tesla was ahead of its time when it launched in 2003, or when it barely outsold the Fisherman Karma in 2012, but its technology hurdles were minor and the regulatory environment exceptionally encouraging compared to what the Boring Company will face.

Million dollar projects in times of scarcity

It’s easier to sell cars when the government sends everyone who buys a big check. Tacking into the wind is something Musk doesn’t do very well.

Ross Gerbera Tesla and Twitter investor, told The Washington Post that Musk “runs the fun part of the business,” adding: “Elon is not good at bureaucracies… He doesn’t think politically. He doesn’t care.”

The city of Columbus it spent a million dollars to study whether it wanted to be a station on a proposed underground vacuum tube from Pittsburgh to Chicago, before opting out.

achieve any major urban infrastructure project it involves raising funds, considering current and future community needs, extrapolating where homes and jobs will be 20 years from now, coordinating the interests of many state jurisdictions, and figuring out how to get on the list of approved plans.

Musk continues to boost his business with his tunnel company in large urban areas. In TexasMusk reportedly wants to dig multiple subway-style tunnels to relieve congestion in the cities of Austin and San Antonio.

Hyperloop tunnels that cost between 50 million and 120 million dollars per milefigures that do not seem to be in a “feasible” phase for a local government dealing with a public that does not want to leave their cars.

Government rejections

Funding for any kind of public transportation is not going to grow as ridership declines in the USA.

the mayor of Saint AnthonyRon Nirenberg , told local media: “Frankly, we have a lot of transportation problems that we want to solve here in Texas and in San Antonio. (The nine-mile hyperloop tunnel) doesn’t solve any of them … What I’ve seen after exploring the Boring Tunnel concept, again, doesn’t fit into any of the priorities we’re trying to achieve in transportation.”

Musk’s other targets seem uninspired. Earlier this year, the North Texas Transportation Planning Group rejected its involvement in any Hyperloop connection between Dallas y Fort Worth. Low-cost high-speed rail is the first choice now.

Musk tweeted a public message to the mayor of Miami, Francis Suarez, last year. It said that “cars and trucks stuck in traffic generate megatons of toxic gases and particles, but the Boring Company’s highway tunnels under Miami would solve traffic and be an example to the world. (…) If the governor and mayor want this done, we’ll do it.”

The urban planning guru Brent Toderian could not contain his disdain for Musk’s proposals:

“I’m going to make this general statement to all city leaders and decision makers of ANY (sic, all caps in original message) kind: please don’t listen to ANYTHING (sic) Elon Musk says about cities or urban transport.

The Vegas Test

The company’s track record so far is not encouraging. Aside from a private test facility in California, the only customer-oriented project completed by the Boring Company in the six years since it was officially founded is a 1.7-mile-long tunnel system, located under the Las Vegas Convention Center and used to wheel visitors to three different stations in a Tesla driving at normal speeds.

Compared to Tesla and SpaceXRevolutionizing entire industries, the Boring Company’s simple and unspectacular tunnel under Las Vegas means it’s one of the few efforts by Musk that hasn’t achieved his lofty goal of revolutionizing transportation.

In fact, no company has come close to realizing the Hyperloop vision. The most tangible achievement to date has been the first human trial conducted by Virgin Hyperloopthe main competitor of the Boring Company, as of November 2020.

It resulted in a capsule that reached a speed of 100 miles per hour at a distance of 500 meters for a few seconds.

Virgin Hyperloop lost its co-founder and CEO, Josh Giegellast year and was forced to cut costs to survive, despite ties to both billionaire Richard Branson and parent company DP World.

In February, Virgin Hyperloop had to ditch half of its staff and changed strategy to focus on freightwhere security is less of an issue.

The Boring Company’s struggles can also be seen in its slow rate of growth. Considering that Tesla employs 110,000 people and SpaceX, 12,000, Boring Company has fewer than 200 employees.

As with the halting progress of his self-driving car technology, Musk’s confidence may stem from a chronic oversimplification of the challenge.

New parents know only too well about the anxiety that comes with welcoming a new baby, especially if it’s your first.

Suddenly you see danger everywhere you look and imagine the worst-case scenarios.

Now US funnyman and Saturday Night Live star Colin Jost has spoken about the dangers lurking inside and outside the home he shares with Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson, who is the mother of his 13-month-old son Cosmo.

Jost, 40, was appearing on Late Night with Seth Meyers when the conversation turned to what fears he had when it came to being a parent.

“I think when you have a decent imagination, it’s worse,” he said. “You don’t have rational fears, you have creative fears.”

Surprisingly, he said they had done little to address “rational fears” in their home by babyproofing.

“Every electrical outlet is wide open, and some of them are the old ones, where they have baby-finger sized holes,” he said.

He added “every table” in their home was filled with “glass objects” designed to choke or maim a small child.

He showed a photo of one piece of art that contained four glass balls.

“No offence to the wonderful artist, but this is for baby choking,” he said, adding it was so dangerous it was acting as a deterrent to his baby son.

“I think he looks at them and thinks, ‘This is too obvious a choking hazard. I can’t fall for this’.”

Jost went on to reveal that his “number one fear” of what could happen to his son was being snatched by an eagle.

He joked that with the bald eagle population increasing in the US, it could lead to “competition for food.”

And Johansson was not helping matters.

“We go for walks and I’m scanning the horizon. I’m on eagle watch,” he said. “And she’s got Cosmo in the stroller, and Scarlett puts a little hat on his head that has mouse ears on the hat.

“And I’m like, ‘You’re dressing our baby like food’.”

Just last week, Johansson revealed during an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Showhow they came up with their son’s unusual name.

After joking they “threw a bunch of letters in the air,” she revealed it had a link to the name of her daughter, Rose, 8, adding they were both named after flowers.

“Cosmo is a really sweet little flower that comes in different shades of orange and yellow. That’s why my daughter liked it too,” she said.

Johansson shares Rose with former husband Romain Dauriac, a French journalist whom she married in 2014 and divorced three years later.

During an interview with InStyle earlier this year, Johansson said Rose had begun questioning her about her grooming routine.

“She will ask, ‘Why are you tweezing your eyebrows? Why are you curling your lashes? What’s a tampon? What’s it for?’, she said.

“She asked me why my underwear went up my butt crack. I was like, ‘Cause you don’t want a line in your pants’ and she was like ‘Why?’ and I was like, ‘Cause then you could see my underwear.’ [But] she was like ‘But you are wearing underwear’. Like, I know, it’s weird.”

Journal Reference:

  1. Genevieve Plant, Eric A. Kort, Adam R. Brandt, Yuanlei Chen, Graham Fordice, Alan M. Gorchov Negron, Stefan Schwietzke, Mackenzie Smith, Daniel Zavala-Araiza. Inefficient and unlit natural gas flares both emit large quantities of methane. Science, 2022; 377 (6614): 1566 DOI: 10.1126/science.abq0385

Methane is known to be a powerful greenhouse gas, but burning it off at oil and gas wells was believed to effectively keep it from escaping into the atmosphere.

Unfortunately, data published in the journal Science shows we overestimate flaring’s effectiveness and, as a result, underestimate its contribution to methane emissions and climate change. But if we fix flaring issues, the payoff is huge: the equivalent of removing 3 million cars from the roads.

Industry and regulators operate under the assumption flares are constantly lit and that they burn off 98% of methane when in operation. Data taken via aerial surveys in the three U.S. geographical basins, which are home to more than 80% of U.S. flaring operations, shows both assumptions are incorrect. Flares were found to be unlit approximately 3%-5% of the time and, even when lit, they were found operating at low efficiency. Combined, those factors lead to an average effective flaring efficiency rate of only 91%.

“There is a lot more methane being added to the atmosphere than currently accounted for in any inventories or estimates,” said Eric Kort, U-M associate professor of climate and space sciences and engineering, principal investigator of the F3UEL project and senior scientist on the new research.

Oil production can come with methane as a byproduct, and when it’s not cost-effective to capture it, the gas must be safely disposed of. Burning methane by flaring as it is released converts it to carbon dioxide, another greenhouse gas but one that is less harmful on a pound-by-pound basis.

Over the course of three years, researchers made 13 flights in planes equipped with air monitoring equipment to assess how much methane is released from flares across oil and gas production basins. Flights were conducted in the Permian and Eagle Ford oil and gas fields in Texas, as well as the Bakken oil and gas field in North Dakota.

Planes flew downwind of flaring sites — crisscrossing the direct pathways of the air plumes released by flaring. Tubes and pumps drew air into the onboard instrumentation, where laser scanning at a specific frequency measures the amount of carbon dioxide and methane it carries.

Measuring both gasses simultaneously allowed researchers to estimate the destruction removal efficiency of flaring at an individual site.

“If the flare is operating as it should be, there should be a large carbon dioxide spike and a relatively small methane spike. And depending on the relative enhancement of those two gasses, we can tell how well the flares are performing,” said Genevieve Plant, lead author on the study and an assistant research scientist in climate and space sciences and engineering.

In November, the U.S., European Union and additional partners — 103 countries in all — launched the Global Methane Pledge to restrict methane emissions. That commitment focused on keeping global temperatures within the 1.5 degree increase limit set by the scientific community to offset the worst impacts of climate change. And last year, United Nations officials identified methane reduction as “the strongest lever we have to slow climate change over the next 25 years.”

“This appears to be a source of methane emissions that seems quite addressable,” Plant said. “With management practices and our better understanding of what’s happening to these flares, we can reduce this source of methane in a tangible way.”

Recent research led by nonprofit EDF similarly found that roughly 10% of flares are unlit or malfunctioning.

“This study adds to the growing body of research that tells us that the oil and gas industry has a flaring problem,” said Jon Goldstein, EDF’s senior director of regulatory and legislative affairs. “The Environmental Protection Agency and Bureau of Land Management should implement solutions that can help to end the practice of routine flaring.”

Inefficient and unlit natural gas flares both emit large quantities of methane. Science, 2022; 377 (6614): 1566 DOI: 10.1126/science.abq0385

Methane is known to be a powerful greenhouse gas, but burning it off at oil and gas wells was believed to effectively keep it from escaping into the atmosphere.

Unfortunately, data published in the journal Science shows we overestimate flaring’s effectiveness and, as a result, underestimate its contribution to methane emissions and climate change. But if we fix flaring issues, the payoff is huge: the equivalent of removing 3 million cars from the roads.

Industry and regulators operate under the assumption flares are constantly lit and that they burn off 98% of methane when in operation. Data taken via aerial surveys in the three U.S. geographical basins, which are home to more than 80% of U.S. flaring operations, shows both assumptions are incorrect. Flares were found to be unlit approximately 3%-5% of the time and, even when lit, they were found operating at low efficiency. Combined, those factors lead to an average effective flaring efficiency rate of only 91%.

“There is a lot more methane being added to the atmosphere than currently accounted for in any inventories or estimates,” said Eric Kort, U-M associate professor of climate and space sciences and engineering, principal investigator of the F3UEL project and senior scientist on the new research.

Oil production can come with methane as a byproduct, and when it’s not cost-effective to capture it, the gas must be safely disposed of. Burning methane by flaring as it is released converts it to carbon dioxide, another greenhouse gas but one that is less harmful on a pound-by-pound basis.

Over the course of three years, researchers made 13 flights in planes equipped with air monitoring equipment to assess how much methane is released from flares across oil and gas production basins. Flights were conducted in the Permian and Eagle Ford oil and gas fields in Texas, as well as the Bakken oil and gas field in North Dakota.

Planes flew downwind of flaring sites — crisscrossing the direct pathways of the air plumes released by flaring. Tubes and pumps drew air into the onboard instrumentation, where laser scanning at a specific frequency measures the amount of carbon dioxide and methane it carries.

Measuring both gasses simultaneously allowed researchers to estimate the destruction removal efficiency of flaring at an individual site.

“If the flare is operating as it should be, there should be a large carbon dioxide spike and a relatively small methane spike. And depending on the relative enhancement of those two gasses, we can tell how well the flares are performing,” said Genevieve Plant, lead author on the study and an assistant research scientist in climate and space sciences and engineering.

In November, the U.S., European Union and additional partners — 103 countries in all — launched the Global Methane Pledge to restrict methane emissions. That commitment focused on keeping global temperatures within the 1.5 degree increase limit set by the scientific community to offset the worst impacts of climate change. And last year, United Nations officials identified methane reduction as “the strongest lever we have to slow climate change over the next 25 years.”

“This appears to be a source of methane emissions that seems quite addressable,” Plant said. “With management practices and our better understanding of what’s happening to these flares, we can reduce this source of methane in a tangible way.”

Invasion of the field, tear gas and incidents with the police in Malang after the defeat of the home team. Over 180 injured, the federation stops the championship

At least 174 people died in the accidents at a stadium in Indonesia. The tragedy occurred Saturday night in the city of Malang, east of the island of Java, when the fans of Arema FC entered the field at the Kanjuruhan stadium in Malang City after the 3-2 defeat to Persebaya Surabaya, historical rival and never winning in the past 20 years. A riot, as the police called it, which began firing tear gas after the killing of two officers. Dozens of people were trampled and killed, with spectators panicking.

The tear gas

Footage shot inside the stadium shows huge amounts of tear gas and hundreds of people clinging to the barriers, trying to escape. Others carried injured passersby, making their way through the chaos. “The police threw tear gas and people rushed out, pushing each other and this caused many casualties,” one spectator told AFP. Indonesian President Joko Widodo on Sunday ordered “an analysis of football matches and security procedures” after the incident. And he asked the federation to suspend all games until “safety improvements”. “I am deeply sorry and I hope this football-related tragedy is the last,” he said in a televised speech.

According to local hospital sources, one of the victims was only five years old. The stadium held 42,000 people and was sold out, according to authorities. At the end of the game about 3,000 people entered the field. And in front of the stadium there are the remains of this crazy day: charred vehicles, including a police truck, littered the streets. “It is a deplorable incident that hurts our football at a time when fans can watch a match in a stadium after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic,” Youth Minister Zainudin Amali apologized. The Indonesian Football Association has suspended all matches scheduled for this week. “We are devastated and we apologize to the families of the victims and to all interested parties for this tragedy,” said PSSI President Mochamad Iriawan.

Hooligans

Fan violence has long been an issue on the table in Indonesia, where longstanding rivalries have turned into deadly clashes. Some matches – the most important being the derby between Persija Jakarta and Persib Bandung – are so tense that players from the best teams enter the stadium escorted as heads of state. In this case the visiting supporters were not allowed to purchase tickets for the match for fear of accidents. The head of the Asian Football Confederation expressed his regret for the loss of life. Indonesia will host the U20 World Cup next year at several stadiums across the country, but Malang is not one of them.

The withdrawal of Marco Bellavia from the House of Big Brother Vip risks becoming a case. In the last few hours, the official statement has arrived that the historical conductor of Bim Bum Bam has voluntarily abandoned the reality show most loved in Italy, but … While the controversy against the competitors, there are those who insinuate the doubt that in reality the decision was not his.

Chaos on the House








L’indiscretion sensational comes from Davide Maggio, an expert on gossipwhich revealed an important detail, capable of creating chaos on the House and on the production of the Big Brother Vip: «I understand that Bellavia’s retirement from #GFVip is not a competitor’s choice. And if it is true, as it is true, that I fully agree with the decision, it is equally true that those who have assessed the situation (very serious for me) and allowed the entry of the competitor must answer “, he wrote on Twitter.




Forced out?




Marco Bellavia therefore he would have been forced to leave the program. But he doesn’t stop there. Also according to Davide Maggio, measures should be taken for all the behaviors assumed in these days by the other gieffini: “That said, I would also take serious measures against those squalid roommates who, in the name of this fucking search for the clip, preferred to lash out against this poor fellow instead of understanding and helping. Shame on you », he commented on social indignant.







A discussed retreat




The withdrawal of Marco Bellavia has sent the web world into a rage. A general indictment that could turn into a sensational own goal for the program that risks losing the huge audience that, every day, follows the dynamics inside the House with apprehension. But in this case it is a bad page for the reality show to which Alfonso Signorini will have to clarify.










The ex-wife against the other competitors: “Shame!”


But there are also other versions. Elena Travaglia, Marco’s ex-wife, wrote in an Instagram story: «I’m reading so many things, too many. Remember that behind all this is my son, a 15 year old boy. Marco is a good person, perhaps too sensitive and he asked for help several times, but no one in the house helped him. Shame! They taught me to help people in difficulty, not to bury them ». The woman’s message ends with a thank you to Antonella Fiordelisi: “She was the only one who gave him a little help even with just a word, a caress, a smile”.


The collapse of Bellavia – according to the ex-wife, but not only – would be attributable to the discriminatory attitude of the other competitors, rather than to her alleged incompatibility with the game. We will know more on Monday.

Thirty years ago, one of the great myths of the seventh art, Marlene Dietrich, died in her retirement in Paris. The German actress had turned 90, although she never wanted to confirm her true date of birth and she left a biography dotted with anecdotes, rumors and relationships with some of the names that built the image of the 20th century. Among the many anecdotes that have the German diva as the protagonist, El Círculo Digital reviews her confrontation with Spanish censorship.



The exercise of censorshipthe one that condemned footage of Buñuel, Berlanga, Fernán-Gómez, Picazo or Miró, lived in Spain its maximum splendor after the Civil War. he was the dictator Francisco Franco who institutionalized this activity and they were men like Gabriel Arias-Salgado, Minister of Information and Tourism between 1951 and 1962, who excused these “orientation rules” in imaginary statistics. “Before its implementation -he even said in the Italian press-, 90% of Spaniards went to hell. Now, thanks to us, only 25% are condemned”.

However, censorship was not only exercised during the dark years of the regime. The first official regulations were promulgated in 1912 and, during the dictatorship of Rivera’s cousin, between 1923 and 1930, was accentuated. It was then that they began to cut or ban those films that challenge traditional values of Spain or offered a derogatory image of the country. Normally, foreign films, because Spanish cinema, completely alienated from the moral impositions of the Catholic Church, did not usually go beyond the limits of conservatism.

‘The devil was a woman’

After the proclamation of the Republic, in 1931, the censorship pressure relaxed but did not disappear. Example of this is ‘The devil was a woman’the last film that the famous Austrian director Von Sternberg made for excellent Marlene Dietrich. A free adaptation of the novel by Pierre Louys ‘La mujer y el pelele’, which later, in 1977, would once again be a source of inspiration for Luis Buñuel in ‘Ese obscure object of desire’.

The movie poster.

Sternberg’s story, set in 1890 Spain, did not please the authorities of the conservative biennium who demanded that the Paramount producer burn the negatives. The unpleasant “cinematic incident”, as he refers to it Jose Maria Gil Robles in his memoirs ‘Peace was not possible’, it resulted in the supposed destruction of the film, which the Minister of War at the time described as “of the most hateful anti-Spanish character”.

“The protagonist, captain of our Army, was the sum and compendium of all the villains. In the plot of the absurd Spanish, full of clichés and falsehoods, the Civil Guard was also denigrated”. And it is that the plot of the play revolved around Antonio Galván, a young officer who meets Concha Pérez, a mysterious woman who works in a tobacco factory. Quickly, the man falls for him, while Concha seduces and ridicules Don Pascual, a Civil Guard officer who tries to convince Galván that Concha is a very dangerous woman.

For some reason, that plot undermined the values ​​of radical-Cedista Spain and José María Gil Robles, faced with the offense and, as he himself relates, rushed “to raise the problem in the Council of Ministers and I got the agreement to require to the interested company so that within three days it withdraws and destroys the tape, the Government being willing even to prohibit in Spain all productions of Paramount“.

After a meeting with the producer’s representative, the American company promised to withdraw the film from the diplomatic or consular representation designated by the Spanish government. But just one day later, “some teleprograms from America were published in the press, according to which the production house did not agree willingly to the proposal accepted by its representative in Spain, who was produced, of course, in all moment with the best disposition of spirit to comply with our agreement. Given the nonsense of direct negotiations that seemed to emerge from such communications, I told the journalists that in no way would the Government agree to agree, as from power to power, with a private company. In the event that your agreement is not honored, you should submit the Paramount to the consequences derived from it”, declared Gil Robles.

A new date was then set for its destruction, which was later confirmed by the Spanish ambassador in Washington, via telegram, when he reported the burning of the negative of the film. Gil Robles is pleased with that staging. “All this arduous work, and so many others that it would not be discreet to reveal, could be done in the short period of seven months thanks to the titanic effort of the Ministry’s staff, especially the senior managers.”

Today we know that the tape was not destroyed and, although for some years it was the most difficult title to watch in the entire series dedicated to Marlene, today it is possible to enjoy this film that 80 years ago, in 1935, infuriated the Government of the II Republic.

A new date was then set for its destruction, which was later confirmed by the Spanish ambassador in Washington, via telegram, when he reported the burning of the negative of the film. Gil Robles is pleased with that staging. “All this arduous work, and so many others that it would not be discreet to reveal, could be done in the short period of seven months thanks to the titanic effort of the Ministry’s staff, especially the senior managers.”

Today we know that the tape was not destroyed and, although for some years it was the most difficult title to watch in the entire series dedicated to Marlene, today it is possible to enjoy this film that 80 years ago, in 1935, infuriated the Government of the II Republic.

We would like to give thanks to the author of this post for this remarkable content
