Fuel distribution was halted on Tuesday, October 26, at around noon at all service stations in Iran, state television said. “Due to disruptions in the computer system, the distribution of fuel to service stations across the country has been interrupted”, thus affirmed the same source.

First unidentified, this general blackout is in fact due to a cyberattack, said the highest security body in the country shortly after. “The Supreme National Security Council confirmed that it was a cyberattack against the computer fuel distribution system”, state television reported. “Details of the attack and its origin are under investigation”, added the same source, without further details.

Official channels showed gas stations closed as queues lengthened. “An urgent meeting is held at the Iranian National Petroleum Products Distribution Company to resolve the problem”, also declared his spokesperson, Fatemeh Kahi. In Tehran, technicians from the petroleum ministry took the computer system of a few gas stations offline to dispense fuel manually, television reported later in the day.

“No plan to increase the price of gasoline”

From the start, “Officials concerned” had not ruled out that it could be a cyberattack, evoked by Iranian social media. Interior Minister Ahmad Vahidi, however, had preferred to ensure that the interruption was “Due to a technical problem which will soon be resolved”.

Conservative news agency Fars has linked the blackout to the anniversary of November 15, 2019, when violent protests erupted in Iran after news of a sudden rise in gasoline prices. The government “Has no plan to increase the price of gasoline and people shouldn’t be worried”, promised Mr. Vahidi, questioned by the public broadcasting.

In July, a cyberattack had already crippled the country’s rail system and sparked scenes of « chaos », wrote then The Times of Israel. In addition to train delays and cancellations, hackers disseminated erroneous traffic information messages, calling on users to contact a number – which turned out to be the office of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.

If the attack had not been claimed, the New York Times reported in July that an investigation, conducted by an Israeli-American cybersecurity firm, concluded that a group named Indra and opposed to the Iranian government was likely behind the cyberattack.

Storms and flooded rivers in the eastern part of the island, already hit on Sunday. Discomfort also in Calabria: two state roads were interrupted due to landslides. At the moment there are already three dead in Sicily

They are again plagued by bad weather the Ionian coasts of Calabria and Sicily: l’red alert issued yesterday by the Civil Protection it came true and the eastern area of ​​the two southern regions was hit by violent people starting in the morning storms and gusts of wind which caused flooding and landslides, after those who had hit the same area already on Sunday. Once again the province of Catania to have endured the greatest hardships.

The victims

In Gravina di Catania, in via Etnea, a 53-year-old who died (not a girl, as the agencies initially reported) drowned in the swollen river created by the storm. According to an initial reconstruction, the victim got out of a car invaded by water and was run over. Firefighters, municipal police and 118 personnel intervened on the spot. On Sunday, a married couple had been swept away by a wave of full a Scordia, always in the Catania area. The body of her husband, Sebastiano Gambera, 67, a beekeeper, was found. Still missing, however, that of his wife, 61 years old: the research now extends from the countryside of Scordia in the Catania area to those of Lentini in the Syracusano area – the border area. The fury of the water would have carried her over two kilometers.

The NGO ship at the mercy

The stormy sea is making it navigation is also dangerous, in particular for a ship, the Geo Barents, owned by the NGO Doctors Without Borders, which has 367 migrants on board a few miles off the coast of Sicily and is asking for a landing port (below you can follow the route)

The situation in Catania

Water in the Etna capital it has also invaded Piazza Duomo and the ring road: the west ring road has been closed. The violent rains caused the flooding of some waterways that soon occupied the roads. The historian was also flooded in Catania fish market and the fountain from which the subterranean Amenano river emerges for a while. Underwater also the pediatric emergency room of the Garibaldi hospital (click here and watch the video). For a few hours, a black out, also hit the town hall. The prefecture has renewed the provision for the suspension of teaching activities in all schools as a result of the weather alert. Difficult situation in the province a Misterbianco, where a landslide forced four families to flee their homes as a precaution. The areas most affected are those south of the Etna capital. New floods have occurred in the village of Santa Maria Goretti, which is located near the Fontanarossa airport of Catania.

The Etna industrial area is flooded, which is the most important in the South, with significant problems for multinationals and small and medium-sized enterprises. Difficulties also in terms of logistics, traffic and transport. The state road 114 in the stretch that connects Catania and Syracuse was also hit by the storm. Among the areas with the greatest inconvenience there are also the Ionian ones between Giarre and Mascali. Some roads have been closed and some motorists have been rescued. The firefighters of Catania have, so far, carried out over 214 interventions with 429 workers at work. The balance of damage to the environment and infrastructure is increasing.

In the Messina area

Even in the Messina area the situation remains critical. Yesterday a section of the motorway that connects it to Catania was closed due to the fall of a boulder. The Ionian side of the province was particularly affected by bad weather, where landslides and floods occurred. The firefighters intervened mainly in the area of ​​Letojanni and Taormina due to flooding and landslides due to rain. During the night a landslide led to the closure of the provincial road that connects Santa Teresa Riva with Savoca and Casalvecchio Siculo, and work is being done to restore it. In the Tyrrhenian area, due to the overflow of the Fitalia torrent, a temporary closure was ordered for the transit of a section of the provincial road n.157 Tortoriciana, here too we try to intervene to restore the transit of vehicles.

Calabria

Similar situation in Calabria where due to some landslides due to a landslide, two state roads were interrupted: the 106 which runs along the Ionian coast e the 107 which instead crosses the interior of the region. In this case it seems that the landslide, which occupied the entrance to a tunnel, was caused by an illegal construction located a little further upstream. Even off the coast of Roccella Jonica a boat with 70 migrants on board she was rescued because she was in trouble. In the province of Vibo Valentia in 48 hours, 451 mm of rain fell. From the findings of the Arpacal multi-risk functional center, the Serre, the Apennines between the provinces of Vibo Valentia and Catanzaro, are the areas most affected by the rainfall of the last 48 hours, affected by red alert until tonight.

It was inaugurated on Saturday 23 October on Park of the Walls, the project of the recovery of the historic walls which is part of a wider project of rediscovery and requalification of the architectural testimonies of the history of Spezzina pre and post Arsenalizia.

The works were financed with resources from the Regional Strategic Fund and municipal resources for a total of 1 million 500 thousand euros .

“The Parco delle Mura is the first piece of the largest mosaic that is Spezia Forte, the recovery of La Spezia history from the fourteenth to the twentieth century so that the people of La Spezia can regain possession of the places in the heart of our city and become an unprecedented tourist flywheel – declares the Mayor della Spezia Pierluigi Peracchini – the Parco delle Mura winds for 4 km and is a path surrounded by nature that connects the city center with the hilly area: today we inaugurate the first section, but we are already working on the second, with a view to finalize the path to reach the Parco della Rimembranza, whose inauguration is scheduled for next spring.

The Parco delle Mura – continues the Mayor – is beauty to be experienced 24 hours a day, from sunrise to sunset: excursions, romantic walks, Sunday outings, in total safety thanks to video surveillance, at the maximum possible inclusion for people with disabilities, night lighting. A dream of the people of La Spezia that becomes reality thanks to the resources of the Liguria Region which from the very beginning strongly believed in this project ».

«As the Liguria region, through the Regional Strategic Fund, we have gladly financed the redevelopment of an area so important for the city of La Spezia – explained the president of the Liguria region Giovanni Toti -. The Parco delle Mura represents an area of ​​great value in the city, both from the point of view of urban and historical greenery, an investment that will allow the city to increase its tourist appeal even more, with a splendid path in the green and a dip in history for its citizens “.

The inauguration of the Parco delle Mura is part of the larger historical project “Spezia Forte” which also includes the Parco della Rimembranza, a Museum dedicated to the Cold War, the restoration of the former convent of the Poor Clares, the recovery of the Quintino Sella anti-aircraft gallery each identified with a specific brand, historical explanatory panels in Italian and English complete with information and QR code. The Parco delle Mura will become a new place for La Spezia people and tourists where, immersed in nature, they can take a dip in the past of our city, admire the breathtaking panorama with unprecedented views and also spend an unforgettable evening with the illuminated walls.

The project of “Redevelopment and recovery of the nineteenth-century walls of La Spezia”, ​​has included and involved all those works necessary for the recovery and enhancement of the nineteenth-century walls of La Spezia to make the parallel path accessible to them which, together with the existing historical artifact relating to the so-called security belt, is organically inserted in a compendium that runs for about 4 km and is called “Parco delle mura”. This park is spread over the hilly area of ​​La Spezia, embracing the historic nucleus of nineteenth-century expansion and develops in an almost continuous arc in an east-west direction starting from the area behind the Cathedral to the Collina di Gaggiola to the west, including exclusively the areas relating to the paths located outside and above the walls.

Finally, a video surveillance system was created to ensure maximum safety and also discourage phenomena of waste abandonment and a lighting system that will guarantee on the one hand the use of the site even in the evening and on the other will allow a very suggestive view of the walls in evening time from the city.

The particle cauldron that is the LHC (Large Hadron Collider), the giant accelerator of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN, near Geneva), may have been arrested for work for two years, his “old” data still reveals treasures. Thus, thanks to the smallest of its detectors, LHCb, researchers have just unearthed a new particle, predicted just forty years ago and whose atypical properties raise the hope of even more important discoveries.

“I was really excited when I saw it the first time, but it took a few weeks before we checked everything and convinced ourselves that we really had a new particle”, explains Ivan Polyakov, from Syracuse University (United States), member of LHCb, who has presented the result on July 29 at a conference. “When in 1981, with my two colleagues Pierre Taxil and Jean-Pierre Ader, we made this prediction, people were skeptical, notes Jean-Marc Richard, now professor emeritus at the University of Lyon. But I knew it would happen. Except that I thought it would be my grandchildren who would see it. So I was happy when colleagues from LHCb told me. “

First peculiarity of the newcomer, unlike electrons, photons or the famous Higgs boson, it is not an elementary particle. It is a tetraquark, made up of four quarks, just as protons or neutrons are made of three quarks, and the lesser known, mesons, of only two quarks. Second distinctive sign, unlike other tetraquarks created in very intense collisions of particles over the past twenty years and which disappear almost instantly, this one survives 10 to 1000 times longer. So much so that physicists think they have got their hands on a first assembly of well-linked quarks, rather than on a distended aggregate. A beautiful pearl necklace rather than a pierced bag containing beads. Or the equivalent of a stable molecule in chemistry.

Very massive charms

Making such a necklace is not easy. Two “glues” are available to assemble the elements. One, the electroweak interaction, is known to hold electrons around atoms together, or to act on protons and neutrons. The other, called “strong interaction”, maintains the quarks between them. The tetraquarks discovered so far mixed the two glues and “broke” easily, but not this last born, which seems to hold only by the strong glue. Its secret is that it contains two very heavy quarks, called “charms”, much more massive than the quarks found inside protons and neutrons. This would stabilize the building and give it both its barbaric name of Tcc + (for tetraquark with two charms, positively charged) and its mass of more than four times that of a proton.

The tetraquarks discovered so far mixed the two glues and “broke” easily, but not this last born, which seems to hold only by the strong glue. Its secret is that it contains two very heavy quarks, called “charms”, much more massive than the quarks found inside protons and neutrons. This would stabilize the building and give it both its barbaric name of Tcc + (for tetraquark with two charms, positively charged) and its mass of more than four times that of a proton.

  1. Colin P. Green, Likun Mao, Vincent O’Sullivan. Internet usage and the cognitive function of retirees. Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization, 2021; 190: 747 DOI: 10.1016/j.jebo.2021.08.013

Researchers from Lancaster University Management School, the Norwegian University Science and Technology and Trinity College Dublin examined the cognitive function of more than 2,000 retired people from across Europe, and found that post-retirement internet usage is associated with substantially higher scores on tests.

The study, published in the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization, uses data drawn from the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE) that collects information about the health, employment history and socio-economic status of older people.

Focusing on a sample of 2,105 older people from Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Israel, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland who have been retired since 2004, researchers examined retirees’ cognitive function in both 2013 and 2015. They specifically focused on a word recall test, where individuals were asked to recall a list of 10 words immediately, and then again five minutes later.

Results found that, on average, people who used the internet after they retired were able to recall 1.22 extra words in the recall test compared to non-internet users. However, retirees who used the internet were also more likely to be male, younger, better educated, and have been retired for a shorter period. They also appear to be in better health — even though they drink and smoke more.

Dr Vincent O’Sullivan, a co-author from Lancaster University Management School said: “Our results reveal that using the internet, post-retirement, leads to a marked reduction in the rate of cognitive decline.

“Interestingly, this protective effect was found to be most significant amongst women, with female retirees who regularly surfed the internet able to recall 2.37 more words compared to women who didn’t go online. The results were also consistent among men, with retired internet users able to recall 0.94 more words than men with similar characteristics who didn’t use the internet.

“We also found that retirees who used computers in their jobs before retirement were more likely to keep using computers once they retired, and hence had better cognitive function.”

Researchers compared the cognitive function of retirees who used to work in jobs where computers were commonplace to retirees who worked in jobs where computers weren’t often used. For example, among teachers, computers became common in the workplace much later than sectors such as financial services. Their results revealed that people with pre-retirement exposure to computers were more likely to continue to use them once they retired.

Among the overall results, the researchers also found a stark difference in the patterns of internet usage between European countries, with no more than 12% of retirees using the internet in Italy, compared to over 60% in Denmark.

“Research has shown that retirement from the workforce is a critical period for cognitive function, which declines with age and can be a predictor for a range of key health outcomes among older people,” said co-author Likun Mao, formerly a PhD student at Lancaster but now at Trinity College Dublin. “Although there is a widespread belief that computer usage improves older people’s cognitive function — such as memory, attention, spatial abilities and problem solving — there has been mixed evidence from previous studies.

“We were able to discern that pre-retirement computer usage does not directly influence post-retirement cognitive decline, and we ensured our results referred only to post-retirement internet usage.”

Professor Colin Green, of the Norwegian University Science and Technology, added: “Within our study we estimated statistical models which controlled for individuals’ ages, education levels, occupational skills and years since retirement, so we are confident that our results are robust and relate only to the use of the internet, post retirement.

“This sets it apart from other studies and raises the interesting question of what it is about internet use exactly, that drives this positive effect on cognitive function. Interacting with others online, finding out information in order to attend social activities or simple tasks like shopping online can all make life easier for retirees, but we are yet to understand which, if any, of these tasks actually go as far as improving cognitive performance.”

It was October 2020, with the Covid-19 pandemic still raging, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell sold his stakes in a Vanguard stock fund for more than $ 1 million. (more than 857,000 euros). In this year of crisis, the man in charge of US monetary policy carried out five other transactions in September and December for amounts between 15,000 and 250,000 dollars. He sold his securities for “personal needs”, in accordance with Fed rules, when markets were low – the stock market soared in November 2020 after the discovery of the Covid-19 vaccine.

Nevertheless, the affair complicates his reappointment for a second term at the head of the Federal Reserve, on 1is February 2022. Two presidents of regional banks, those of Dallas and Boston, have already had to resign at the end of September for having actively managed their portfolios, while the Fed was at the bedside of the economy, with rates brought to zero and massive purchases corporate and bank debts.

These stock sales are making the case for the left wing of the Democratic Party, especially Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, who wants to block Mr Powell and is campaigning for him to be replaced by progressive Lael Brainard, 59, PhD in economics at Harvard and former member of the Obama teams. This member of the Board of Governors of the Fed since 2014 was careful not to carry out any financial transaction during the year 2020. Mme Warren notably criticizes Mr. Powell for insufficient regulation of Wall Street.

War of influence

The battle for the Fed chairmanship gives rise to an intense behind-the-scenes war of influence. Since Paul Volcker, originally appointed by Jimmy Carter and kept for a second term by Ronald Reagan, tradition has dictated that a new White House tenant does not change the Fed boss. Donald Trump broke it, by not renewing Democrat Janet Yellen, preferring moderate Republican Jerome Powell.

Barely arrived at the head of the Fed, Mr. Powell decided to hike rates, before backing down in January 2019, proving Donald Trump who had criticized him right. A year later, at the start of the pandemic, Mr. Powell gave massive support to the economy and called on Congress to do the same, so as not to repeat the mistakes of the 2008 crisis. During the summer of 2020, he revisited the Fed’s doctrine, which now targets full employment, including for minorities. He also raised the inflation target, which can now exceed the 2% threshold. While Mr. Powell has underestimated the current inflationary surge, he has so far ruled out any rate hikes.

Editorial. We thought the Brexit nightmare was over. It is not so. Just two years after its signature, on October 17, 2019, the agreement on the divorce painfully concluded between the United Kingdom and the European Union is called into question by its main promoter, Boris Johnson. The dispute raised by London concerns the implementation of the “Northern Irish Protocol”, a part of the agreement which provides for the establishment of customs controls for goods landing in Northern Ireland from Great Britain in order to protect the European internal market, to which the entire island of Ireland belongs.

Establishing such a de facto border in the Irish Sea was the only solution to avoid the reestablishment of the border between the two Ireland removed by the peace agreement of 1998. Controls at the entry of Northern Ireland, province of the United Kingdom, were also the result of a clear choice by Mr Johnson: the United Kingdom’s exit from the European customs union. Her predecessor, Theresa May, had made the opposite choice, precisely to avoid a border in the Irish Sea, an option, she affirmed, that “ no British prime minister will accept[it] never “.

To achieve a “hard Brexit”, Boris Johnson, him, accepted this compromise which ulcerates the Unionist parties of Northern Ireland. They see it as a breach of the unity of the kingdom. Based on their extremist discourse and alleging the cumbersome nature of the controls, the Prime Minister calls for a total overhaul of the text, which the Twenty-Seven refuse. Conciliatory, the European Commission proposed, Wednesday, October 13, to reduce by half the customs controls and by 80% the sanitary controls on food products.

But London is going one step further by claiming the end of the jurisdiction of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) to arbitrate trade disputes concerning Northern Ireland. An unacceptable demand for the Twenty-Seven, who argue that the single European market is only viable if those who benefit from it – including the Irish province of the United Kingdom – are subject to the same rules, and therefore to arbitration of the Court of Luxembourg.

Preserving a flawless unity

The tension between the European Union and the United Kingdom has never reached such a level since Brexit: London threatens to resort to Article 16 of the agreement, which allows its application to be unilaterally suspended in the event of « serious economic difficulties ”. A hypothesis which could lead the Twenty-Seven to take sanctions such as the imposition of customs duties on British products.

It is as if Boris Johnson needed to maintain a permanent conflict with the EU to flatter his electorate and make people forget the harmful consequences of Brexit on the economy. The statements by his former adviser Dominic Cummings that he had, from the start, intended to flout the Brexit deal he had agreed to only to win the 2019 election, probably contain a grain of truth: the good faith of the British Prime Minister is questionable.

He could be a game-changer in the fight against the epidemic. While the European health authorities are examining this antiviral treatment which could be crucial in the fight against the epidemic, the Minister of Health, Olivier Véran, announced, Tuesday October 26, during a hearing in the Senate, that France has ordered 50,000 doses of the anti-Covid-19 pill from the American laboratory Merck. At the same hearing, Mr. Véran also said that two-thirds of caregivers were now vaccinated.

France has again reached 5,000 daily SARS-Co-2 contaminations: figures from Public Health France published on Monday show that contaminations have been on the rise again since October 20. If we smooth the numbers over a week, Monday was the third day in a row that the number of new daily cases stood above 5,000. There were 5,084 on Saturday, 5,259 on Sunday and 5,293 on Monday. , while this indicator did not exceed 4,700 cases until October 19.

The government and epidemiologists have insisted in recent weeks on the need to maintain barrier gestures to contain the pandemic, despite the benefits of vaccination.

“Fifty thousand doses of this drug will be delivered to France from the last days of November or the first days of December, that is to say as soon as the treatments leave the production lines”, Olivier Véran said on Tuesday.

Merck, called MSD outside of North America to distinguish it from a German namesake, reported in early October very encouraging results for this antiviral. According to the American laboratory, which has carried out tests on nearly 800 patients but has yet to make the details public, molnupiravir halves the risk of hospitalization when it is given to patients who have just been tested positive for Covid -19. The group has requested authorization for the treatment from both American and European health authorities, the latter having announced on Monday that they were starting an accelerated procedure.

According to Mr. Véran, the major advantage of this drug is that it is taken in oral form and could therefore be used much easier than intravenous treatments such as, for example, those based on synthetic antibodies. “Imagine that we had [au début de la crise sanitaire] antiviral treatment which reduced the number of serious cases by 50%, imagine the health impact in our country at the heart of the first and second waves, we would have had far fewer deaths and far fewer serious cases “, welcomed the Minister. However, he recalled that this treatment cannot be the only response to the epidemic, stressing the importance of vaccination against Covid-19.

“Vaccination plus antiviral treatment plus monoclonal antibodies equals much lower health impact”, he insisted. This set “We would also put (…) safe in the event of an epidemic wave linked to a new variant of which the damage it could cause is still unknown ”, he concluded. The cost of treatment will be high a priori. Mr. Véran did not specify the amount of the order but, by way of example, the United States ordered 1.7 million doses for $ 1.2 billion this year, or about $ 700 (602 euros ) for each.

“From the first lifts I have, two-thirds of suspended caregivers returned to work once vaccinated. It’s good “, declared Olivier Véran during a hearing in the Senate on the bill on health vigilance.

“We are therefore at a vaccination coverage rate for employees of health and medico-social establishments which is extremely high, and a rate of suspensions and resignations which is extremely low”, he continued, without saying how many suspensions are in progress. The Minister Delegate for Autonomy, Brigitte Bourguignon, had clarified in the National Assembly on October 20 that on that date 7,930 caregivers were suspended in France.

Ten thousand steps and more. Would sleeping well become a privilege? Already somewhat weighed down in recent years, the sleep of the French has deteriorated further with the pandemic.

Currently, nearly two-thirds of adults (63%) report “Sleep problems in the last eight days”, according to the last wave of the CoviPrev survey, released on September 23. The phenomenon is not temporary. This proportion has remained permanently high (oscillating between 59% and 67%) since the first confinement in March 2020, when Public Health France launched the regular monitoring of a few mental health indicators, monitoring which is based on online questionnaires with ‘samples of 2,000 people over 18 years of age. At the time of the previous survey in the general population, the 2017 Health Barometer, a little less than one in two French people (49.4%) were affected by sleep problems in the previous eight days.

Let’s focus on the role of our favorite therapy: physical activity. In people with no particular sleep problem, regular movement reduces the time it takes to fall asleep and improves the overall quality of sleep. Regular physical activity especially increases slow deep sleep. Beneficial effects have also been shown in insomniacs or in patients with sleep apnea.

The sleep-physical activity relationship is also bidirectional, as shown in particular a study including more than 38,000 participants in the British Biobank cohort, followed for seven years (Preventive Medicine, volume 143, February 2021).

Compared to people who were very active at the start and end of the study, being physically inactive at baseline and reduced physical activity over time were associated with a higher likelihood of poor sleep during the period. regular. At the same time, participants with “intermediate” or “poor” sleep at baseline had higher risks of physical inactivity at follow-up than those with healthy sleep. The evolution towards healthy sleep over time attenuated these negative associations, the authors point out.
