  1. E. J. Wallace, S. G. Dee, K. A. Emanuel. Resolving long‐term variations in North Atlantic tropical cyclone activity using a pseudo proxy paleotempestology network approach. Geophysical Research Letters, 2021; DOI: 10.1029/2021GL094891

Postdoctoral fellow Elizabeth Wallace, a paleotempestologist who joined the lab of Rice climate scientist Sylvia Deethis year, is building upon techniques that reveal the frequency of hurricanes in the Atlantic basin over millennia.

Paleoclimate hurricane data (or ‘proxy’ data) is found in archives like tree rings that retain signs of short-term flooding, sediments in blue holes (marine caverns) and coastal ponds that preserve evidence of sand washed inland by storm surges. These natural archives give researchers a rough idea of when and where hurricanes have come ashore.

In a new paper in Geophysical Research Letters, Wallace, Dee and co-author Kerry Emanuel, a climate scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, take hundreds of thousands of “synthetic” storms spun up from global climate model simulations of the past 1,000 years and examine whether or not they are captured by the vast network of Atlantic paleohurricane proxies.

Reconstructing the past will help scientists understand the ebb and flow of Atlantic hurricanes over time. Previous studies by Wallace and others have demonstrated that a single site capturing past storms cannot be used to reconstruct hurricane climate changes; however, a network of proxies might help refine models of how these storms are likely to be affected by climate change going forward.

“These paleo hurricane proxies allow us to reconstruct storms into the past, and we’re using them to figure out how basin-wide storm activity has changed,” said Wallace, a Virginia native who earned her doctorate at MIT and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution last year and connected with Dee when the professor spoke there in 2017.

“If I have a sediment core from Florida, it’s only capturing storms that hit Florida,” she said. “I wanted to see if we can use the full collection of records collected from the Bahamas, the East Coast and the Gulf of Mexico over the past few decades to accurately reconstruct basin-wide storm activity over the last few centuries.”

The synthetic storms they built helped illustrate what Wallace already knew: There’s a bias toward the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico, and a need for more proxies along the east coasts of North and Central America. The Rice team’s quest going forward will be to refine their climate simulations and add more sites to the networks to better reconstruct past hurricane activity.

“In particular, there aren’t really any sites from the Southeast U.S., places like the Carolinas,” she said. “One of the goals of this work is to highlight where scientists should go to core next.”

Wallace has first-hand experience drilling cores. “During a storm event, you get high winds and waves that take the sand from the beach and essentially just throw it back into a coastal pond,” she said. “Only during storm events do these sand layers get deposited in the pond, and in the sediment cores you can see them interspersed with the fine mud that’s typically there. We can date these sand layers and know when a hurricane struck the site.”

She noted there has not yet been an “intensive” effort to compare sediment and tree ring records. “The tree record is still an uncertain proxy,” Wallace said. “We’re looking for tree ring records with rainfall signatures that correspond to storms going over the past 200 or 300 years that match the sediment records for that same interval.”

Dee said the work is fundamentally different from the paleoclimate models she most often studies. “Here we’re taking climate models and generating hundreds of pseudo-tropical storms,” she said. “We’re ‘playing Gaia’ by making a plausible version of reality and combining it with our knowledge of available proxy sites.

“This tells us how many records from how many places we realistically need to capture a climate signal,” Dee said. “It’s really expensive to go out and drill cores, and this helps give us a way to prioritize where to drill.

“This research is crucial as we accelerate into a climate mean state with ever-warmer Atlantic Ocean temperatures,” she said. “Understanding how these storms have evolved over time provides a baseline against which to evaluate tropical cyclones with and without human impacts on the climate system.”

A Pan Postdoctoral Research Fellowship and Rice Academy Fellowship to Wallace and a Gulf Research Program grant to Dee supported the study. Dee is an assistant professor of Earth, environmental and planetary sciences. Emanuel is the Cecil & Ida Green Professor of Atmospheric Science and co-director of the Lorenz Center at MIT.

The study from the UN University, the academic and research arm of the UN, looks at 10 different disasters that occurred in 2020 and 2021, and finds that, even though they occurred in very different locations and do not initially appear to have much in common, they are, in fact, interconnected.

A consequence of human influence

The study builds on the ground-breaking Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) assessment released on 9 August, and based on improved data on historic heating, which showed that human influence has warmed the climate at a rate that is unprecedented in at least the last 2,000 years. António Guterres, the UN Secretary-General described the IPCC assessment as a “code red for humanity”.

Over the 2020-2021 period covered by the UN University, several record-breaking disasters took place, including the COVID-19 pandemic, a cold wave which crippled the US state of Texas, wildfires which destroyed almost 5 million acres of Amazon rainforest, and 9 heavy storms in Viet Nam – in the span of only 7 weeks.

Extreme weather in Texas has brought unseasonal snow storms resulting in widespread electricity blackouts across the US state.

Whilst these disasters occurred thousands of miles apart, the study shows how they are related to one another, and can have consequences for people living in distant places.

An example of this is the recent heatwave in the Arctic and cold wave in Texas. In 2020, the Arctic experienced unusually high air temperatures, and the second-lowest amount of sea ice cover on record.

This warm air destabilized the polar vortex, a spinning mass of cold air above the North Pole, allowing colder air to move southward into North America, contributing to the sub-zero temperatures in Texas, during which the power grid froze up, and 210 people died.

Another example of the connections between disasters included in the study and the pandemic, is Cyclone Amphan, which struck the border region of India and Bangladesh.

In an area where almost 50 per cent of the population is living under the poverty line, the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns left many people without any way to make a living, including migrant workers who were forced to return to their home areas and were housed in cyclone shelters while under quarantine.

When the region was hit by Cyclone Amphan, many people, concerned over social distancing, hygiene and privacy, avoided the shelters and decided to weather the storm in unsecure locations. In the aftermath, there was a spike in COVID-19 cases, compounding the 100 fatalities directly caused by Amphan, which also caused damage in excess of 13 billion USD and displaced 4.9 million people.

Root causes

The new report identifies three root causes that affected most of the events in the analysis: human-induced greenhouse gas emissions, insufficient disaster risk management, and undervaluing environmental costs and benefits in decision-making.

The first of these, human induced greenhouse gas emissions, is identified as one of the reasons why Texas experienced freezing temperatures, but these emissions also contribute to the formation of super cyclones such as Cyclone Amphan, on the other side of the world.

Insufficient disaster risk management, notes the study, was one of the reasons why Texas experienced such high losses of life and excessive infrastructure damage during the cold snap, and also contributed to the high losses caused by the Central Viet Nam floods.

The report also shows how the record rate of deforestation in the Amazon is linked to the high global demand for meat: this demand has led to an increase in the need for soy, which is used as animal feed for poultry. As a result, tracts of forest are being cut down.

“What we can learn from this report is that disasters we see happening around the world are much more interconnected than we may realize, and they are also connected to individual behaviour”, says one of the report’s authors, UNU scientist Jack O’Connor. “Our actions have consequences, for all of us,”

Solutions also linked

However, Mr. O’Connor is adamant that, just as the problems are interlinked, so are the solutions.

The report shows that cutting harmful greenhouse gas emissions can positively affect the outcome of many different types of disasters, prevent a further increase in the frequency and severity of hazards, and protect biodiversity and ecosystems.

[content] => Array ( [encoded] =>

THE ANGELS Influence Kylie Jenner finally confirmed her second pregnancy, through a touching video that she uploaded via Instagram, on 7 September.

The video opens with Kylie showing off a pregnancy test kit showing the results ‘pregnant’ in front of the camera. He then gave the device to rapper Travis Scott who was delighted to see the results.

In another part of the video, Travis and Kylie are seen preparing to go to the obstetrician with their eldest daughter, Stormi Webster. “Are you ready to go see the doctor with mama?” said Kylie to which the princess answered enthusiastically.

Another scene in the video shows Stormi handing an envelope containing an ultrasound photo to her grandmother, Kris Jenner. When he saw the photo, Kris seemed moved and said, “This is one of the happiest days of my life.”

The 1 minute 30 second video ends with Stormi hugging Kylie and kissing her belly while saying, “Baby.” The news of the second pregnancy of the 24-year-old influencer was warmly welcomed by his brothers.

Kourtney Kardashian, for example, congratulated her in the comments column, writing, “I’m touched. This pregnancy is the most beautiful thing that has been given to my sister.” While Khloe Kardashian wrote, “Awwwwww.”

The news of Kylie Jenner’s second pregnancy was previously published by Page Six, on August 20 last. About 5 days later, fans of the influencer suspect that the gender of Kylie’s second child is a boy.

While doing a Live Instagram with Stassie Karanikolaou, Kylie Jenner had time to express her desire to have many children. “I want to have seven children in the future. But not now,” he said at the time.

He considered, pregnancy should be planned and prepared properly. “Pregnancy is not something you can take as a joke. Pregnancy is serious and difficult. Right now, I’m not ready to get pregnant again,” said Kylie Jenner.

JAKARTA- Singer Ari Lasso revealed that he had a malignant and rare cancer on Deddy Corbuzier’s podcast. This 48-year-old man called the cancer that was eating away at his spleen named Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma.

As a result, Ari Lasso also had to undergo chemotherapy, although the cancer was removed through major surgery last August.

“If it’s called cancer, it’s possible that it’s spread through blood tissue, the folds of the gland are there. So the second step is that I’m going to have a pet scan next week, to see where it is going, then chemotherapy,” said Ari Lasso to Deddy Corbuzier, as quoted on Wednesday (Wednesday). 9/9/2021).

“There is no need to spread chemo. But yes, I am grateful, the cancer is called DLBCL, basically B-cell cancer which can be cured,” he continued.

Judging from the size of the tumor that was eating away at his spleen, the doctor said the father of five had stage two cancer. However, this has yet to be confirmed again through a series of tests.

Before finding out that he had cancer, the Hampa singer admitted that he had felt unusual pain in his stomach, until it penetrated to the back. In fact, doctors were also forced to remove his spleen along with the tumor that had gnawed at that part.

After completing surgery and seeing the results of the tumor being removed, Ari Lasso and his wife believed that he had malignant cancer. Even the rarity of the disease he has, will be journaled by the doctors.

“The pathology results came out 6 days (after surgery) later. Yes, I have cancer and the cancer is very rare. People usually get lymphoma cancer, the lymph nodes are lumpy, often faint, low white blood, anemia, often fever, and causes damage to the spleen. I the opposite,” he explained.

“He has cancer in his spleen, and this is case 2 out of 4000 lymphomas, this will be made into a journal, hahaha,” he said.

Poursuivant la tendance de Les Simpsons tout faire d’abord, Compétition Officielle se sent comme la spécificité de la satire du monde de l’art dans Le Carré filtré à travers l’épisode dans lequel M. Burns se rend compte qu’il n’est pas très apprécié et décide de financer un film sur sa vie afin de construire son héritage. Mais il n’y a pas d’équivalent mexicain non syndiqué de Steven Spielberg en charge d’un mauvais biopic sur un vieil homme milliardaire cruel, mais le meilleur des meilleurs dans le monde du cinéma essayant de faire un chef-d’œuvre – juste pour toutes les mauvaises raisons.

Le résultat est un film conçu pour plaire à la foule dans le cadre où il est présenté en avant-première : un film sur les absurdités et la prétention de faire un film de prix prestigieux, présenté en compétition officielle dans l’un des festivals de cinéma les plus prestigieux du monde. Heureusement, cela fonctionne comme des gangbusters.

Lorsque le millionnaire pharmaceutique Humberto Suarez (José Luis Gomez) a 80 ans, il se rend compte qu’il n’a aucun héritage à proprement parler, pas un dont les gens ordinaires se soucieraient ou se souviendraient. Sa solution ? Pour financer une œuvre d’art grande et durable, peut-être un pont, ou même un film. Pas n’importe quel film, remarquez, mais un super film, basé sur un livre lauréat du prix Nobel qu’il ne se souciait pas de lire mais a dépensé une somme absurde d’argent pour acheter les droits, mettant en vedette les deux plus grandes stars du pays et réalisé par un réalisateur acclamé aimé par les critiques.

réalisateurs argentins Mariano Cohn et Gaston duprat (L’homme d’à côté, le citoyen distingué), parviennent à obtenir beaucoup de kilométrage hors de la prémisse de Compétition Officielle, bien qu’il s’agisse principalement d’une série de vignettes où les deux acteurs ont du mal à mettre leur ego de côté et à travailler ensemble. Il y a des arguments sur le nombre de récompenses que chacun a remportées, sur le nombre d’enfants qu’ils ont et avec combien de partenaires (quand on demande à Félix de Banderas, il dit que ce n’est qu’un, et montre son entrejambe), et d’autres frivolités. Pendant ce temps, une grande partie de la comédie est dérivée des manières expérimentales et carrément cruelles que Lola essaie d’obtenir une bonne performance de ses acteurs pendant les répétitions.

Cruz est un tour de force en tant que metteur en scène excentrique, montrant de subtiles notes de vulnérabilité cachées derrière les grands gestes d’un génie tyrannique, comme lorsqu’elle oblige Iván à répéter six fois la première ligne qu’il dit pendant les répétitions (“Bonsoir”) pour apparemment aucune raison, ou quand elle a littéralement une grue suspendue à un rocher au-dessus de la tête des acteurs pour rendre leurs performances plus réelles. De même, Banderas a l’air d’avoir une balle qui respire la confiance en jouant une version exagérée de lui-même en tant que plus grand acteur du monde, un avec des clauses de contrat absurdes comme ne pas pouvoir se faire toucher le visage par qui que ce soit, se vantant de son dernier salaire et de sa conquête. , avant de montrer pourquoi il est le plus grand acteur du moment en jouant ivre à différents niveaux de un à dix. Banderas obtient également sans doute la plus grande scène d’insulte depuis le défilé de bombes F de Steve Martin dans Avions, Trains et Automobiles, prouver pourquoi l’espagnol est une langue si magnifiquement grossière.

De plusieurs façons, Compétition Officielle, écrit par les deux réalisateurs ainsi que Andrés Duprat, se sent comme un Christophe Invité film sans le style faux documentaire, mais tout aussi spécifique dans sa satire. Il s’agit d’un film conçu pour le public de Film Twitter qui est obsédé par les détails des coulisses de chaque production, ainsi que par les perspectives de récompenses de films que pratiquement personne n’a encore vus. Il ne faut que quelques séances de répétition pour que Félix et Iván commencent à discuter de leurs perspectives d’Oscar, seulement pour que ce dernier dise qu’il n’irait jamais aux Oscars pour être leur présence latino symbolique – seulement pour la toute prochaine scène pour le montrer en train de pratiquer un discours.

La satire et la critique ne s’arrêtent pas non plus au niveau de la production, les journalistes et une conférence de presse du festival recevant également plus que quelques coups, avec le genre de questions égoïstes qui seront familières à quiconque a déjà a participé à une séance de questions-réponses lors d’un festival du film. C’est peut-être un peu trop dans le baseball pour le grand public, mais pour ceux qui savent, Compétition Officielle est l’hommage parfait et le démantèlement de l’industrie cinématographique depuis des années, et certainement le plus drôle.

Une série de râteaux jalonnés, pour mieux vous engloutir.

Lars Fields/Musée royal de l’Ontario

Les scientifiques ont découvert une espèce animale énorme et bizarre qui vivait dans les mers primordiales il y a un demi-milliard d’années, à une époque où la plupart des premières créatures aquatiques avaient à peu près la taille d’une cosse de pois.

Mais le nouveau nommé Titanokorys gainesi était un arthropode prédateur qui éclipsait les petits nageurs, mesurant près d’un demi-mètre (19,7 pouces).

“Titanokorys fait partie d’un sous-groupe de radiodons, appelés hurdiidés, caractérisés par une tête incroyablement longue recouverte d’une carapace en trois parties qui a pris une myriade de formes. La tête est si longue par rapport au corps que ces animaux ne sont vraiment rien de plus que nager têtes », a déclaré Joe Moysiuk, étudiant au doctorat en biologie évolutive de l’Université de Toronto, dans un communiqué.

Moysiuk est co-auteur d’une étude publiée mercredi dans la revue Royal Society Open Science qui détaille la découverte.

« La taille même de cet animal est absolument époustouflante », a déclaré le co-auteur Jean-Bernard Caron, du Musée royal de l’Ontario. “C’est l’un des plus gros animaux de la période cambrienne jamais trouvé.”

Les fossiles ont été découverts dans le parc national Kootenay dans les Rocheuses canadiennes. Les animaux auraient joué un rôle important et intimidant dans les écosystèmes des fonds marins qui dominaient la planète à l’époque, car on pense que la terre était en grande partie stérile.

“Leurs membres à l’avant ressemblaient à de multiples râteaux empilés et auraient été très efficaces pour ramener tout ce qu’ils ont capturé dans leurs minuscules épines vers la bouche. L’énorme carapace dorsale aurait pu fonctionner comme une charrue”, a déclaré Caron, qui est également associé Professeur d’écologie, de biologie évolutive et de sciences de la Terre à l’Université de Toronto et titulaire d’un doctorat de Moysiuk. conseiller.

Comme si une tête de nage géante avec plusieurs râteaux pour les membres n’était pas assez étrange, Titanokorys aurait également eu des yeux à multiples facettes et ce que les chercheurs décrivent comme “une bouche en forme de tranche d’ananas, bordée de dents … et un corps avec une série de volets pour la natation.”

La nouvelle espèce est un parent plus grand d’un autre animal éteint également trouvé dans le gisement de Burgess Shale de la région. L’espèce similaire et la plus commune est nommée Cambroaster falcatus en l’honneur de sa carapace de tête en forme de Faucon Millenium.

Les chercheurs disent que les deux espèces se sont peut-être battues pour des proies au fond de la mer, ce qui, je suppose, fait de Titanokorys l’équivalent d’un Tie Fighter préhistorique ?

J’ai hâte de voir la version cambrienne de l’étoile de la mort. Jusqu’à ce jour, les nouveaux fossiles seront exposés au Musée royal de l’Ontario à partir de décembre.

It will be hard to avoid blackouts, or even perhaps electricity rationing, by October or November of this year as a result of the declining water level in reservoirs in the southeast and midwest regions, which account for 70 percent of the country’s hydroelectric generation capacity.

“The crisis did not start this year, it has dragged on for almost a decade,” said Luiz Barata, former director general of the National Electric System Operator (ONS) and current consultant for the Institute for Climate and Society. “The climate has changed the rainfall regime, which will not go back to what it used to be. Droughts are no longer periodic and spread widely apart; they have to do with deforestation.”

The ONS is an association of generation, transmission and distribution companies, together with consumers and the government, which coordinates and oversees the entire structure that ensures electricity in this South American country of 214 million people.

In Brazil, hydroelectric power now accounts for 62 percent of the total generating capacity, currently 174,883 MW, according to the National Electric Energy Agency (ANEEL), the sector’s regulatory body.

As a result, what happens to the rainfall has a strong impact on national life, because of the environmental, climatic and energy effects.

The regions hardest hit today suffered severe droughts in 1999-2002 and 2013-2015, and the phenomenon could be repeated in 2021, said Barata, an engineer who worked in three state-owned companies in the sector and since 1998 has served in various management posts, including as ONS director general from 2016 to 2020.

The southeast and midwest of Brazil are the main recipients of the moisture carried in by the winds – the so-called “flying rivers” that originate in the Amazon rainforest, according to climatologists. The current drought is reportedly a consequence of deforestation, which already affects nearly 20 percent of the Amazon jungle.

But water shortages are affecting almost the entire country. The northeast, which is semi-arid for the most part, experienced its longest drought since 2012, six years all together and even longer in some areas.

Brazil lost 15.7 percent of its territory covered by water, the equivalent of 3.1 million hectares, between 1991 and 2020, according to a satellite imagery study by the Brazilian Annual Land Use and Land Cover Mapping Project known as Mapbiomas, a network of non-governmental organisations, universities and technology companies.

The minister of mines and energy, retired admiral Bento Albuquerque, acknowledged that global warming was a factor in the gravity of the water crisis that is threatening the power supply. But the minister forms part of a government that denies climate change, as well as the need to preserve forests and the environment overall.

Brazil is experiencing “the worst drought in its history,” he said in a message to the nation on Aug. 31 to announce incentives to reduce consumption during the peak demand period – between 17:00 and 21:00 hours – by means of discounts on the electricity bill.

But the real push for savings is a gradual rise in the electricity bill by the government since May, when dry season began with reservoirs at critical levels, similar to those of 2001, when Brazil had to resort to heavy rationing to avoid an energy collapse.

At that time, hydropower was overwhelmingly predominant, accounting for more than 85 percent of the electricity consumed in the country.

There were very few thermal power plants. Since then, various administrations have fomented construction of thermal plants, boosting energy security to the detriment of the environment by increasing the use of fossil fuels, and of consumers, by raising the cost of electricity.

The increase is due to the greater use of thermal power plants and also to the importation of electricity from Argentina and Uruguay, the minister said. The cost is sometimes ten times that of cheaper sources, such as hydro, wind and solar.

To reduce consumption, and thus avoid blackouts and the use of more expensive power plants, the regulator ANEEL slapped an additional charge for each 100 kilowatt-hours of consumption, which gradually increased to 14.20 reals (2.75 dollars) as of Sept. 1, up from 4.17 reals (0.77 cents of a dollar) in May.

Brazil’s electricity mix has recently been diversified with the expansion of new renewable sources. Wind power now accounts for 10 percent of the total installed capacity and solar power makes up 1.87 percent, while thermal power, mostly from oil derivatives, rose to 25 percent.

There will probably be enough supply to weather the current drought and water shortage, thanks to this increase in diversified generation, the measures to curb consumption, and an economy that is not taking off as expected after a large part of the population received anti-COVID vaccines.

The authorities rule out the possibility of rationing because the total extension of transmission lines has doubled since 2001, which allows electricity to be delivered where it is needed, and negotiations are underway with large consumers, mainly industrial, to reduce consumption during peak hours.

But the damage, both social and economic, has already been done. “Expensive energy aggravates poverty, hits businesses hard, and drives up insolvency, inflation and unemployment,” Barata told IPS by telephone from Rio de Janeiro.

Moreover, this process is not neutral. Costly energy is a burden for distribution companies that are already facing the negative effects of the pandemic and the evolution of the electricity sector.

“They will probably ask for tariff corrections next year, but since it will be an election year, the government will reject the anti-popular measure,” said Roberto Kishinami, energy coordinator at the non-governmental Institute for Climate and Society.

The administration of far-right President Jair Bolsonaro is not interested in rationing either. “Rationing energy involves planning rational measures, something alien to this government, which has shown little concern for preventing the nearly 600,000 deaths from COVID-19,” he told IPS during a telephone interview, also from Rio de Janeiro.

Given the complexity of Brazil’s electric system and of crisis management, blackouts are likely to occur in limited areas, for which blame can be attributed to specific actors, Kishinami said.

According to Barata: “It is more serious than rationing, because blackouts create chaos in the economy and everyone’s life.”

To avoid this risk and other damage, the expert believes it is necessary to “obligatorily reduce residential and commercial consumption” and thus take pressure off the system.

The medium- to long-term solution would be to “help the water reservoirs recover by means of the expansion of new renewable sources and hydrogen” – that is, with wind, solar and other energy sources meeting a large part of the demand, so that water can be saved, for other purposes as well, such as human consumption, agriculture and river transport, he said.

Barata predicts that wind and solar will lead electricity generation in Brazil in the next decade. Hydropower will become merely complementary, providing security of supply, a role currently played by fossil fuels.

“The world is moving towards renewables; thermal power plants do not solve anything,” he said.

It will be hard to avoid blackouts, or even perhaps electricity rationing, by October or November of this year as a result of the declining water level in reservoirs in the southeast and midwest regions, which account for 70 percent of the country’s hydroelectric generation capacity.

“The crisis did not start this year, it has dragged on for almost a decade,” said Luiz Barata, former director general of the National Electric System Operator (ONS) and current consultant for the Institute for Climate and Society. “The climate has changed the rainfall regime, which will not go back to what it used to be. Droughts are no longer periodic and spread widely apart; they have to do with deforestation.”

The ONS is an association of generation, transmission and distribution companies, together with consumers and the government, which coordinates and oversees the entire structure that ensures electricity in this South American country of 214 million people.

In Brazil, hydroelectric power now accounts for 62 percent of the total generating capacity, currently 174,883 MW, according to the National Electric Energy Agency (ANEEL), the sector’s regulatory body.

As a result, what happens to the rainfall has a strong impact on national life, because of the environmental, climatic and energy effects.

The regions hardest hit today suffered severe droughts in 1999-2002 and 2013-2015, and the phenomenon could be repeated in 2021, said Barata, an engineer who worked in three state-owned companies in the sector and since 1998 has served in various management posts, including as ONS director general from 2016 to 2020.

The southeast and midwest of Brazil are the main recipients of the moisture carried in by the winds – the so-called “flying rivers” that originate in the Amazon rainforest, according to climatologists. The current drought is reportedly a consequence of deforestation, which already affects nearly 20 percent of the Amazon jungle.

But water shortages are affecting almost the entire country. The northeast, which is semi-arid for the most part, experienced its longest drought since 2012, six years all together and even longer in some areas.

Brazil lost 15.7 percent of its territory covered by water, the equivalent of 3.1 million hectares, between 1991 and 2020, according to a satellite imagery study by the Brazilian Annual Land Use and Land Cover Mapping Project known as Mapbiomas, a network of non-governmental organisations, universities and technology companies.

The minister of mines and energy, retired admiral Bento Albuquerque, acknowledged that global warming was a factor in the gravity of the water crisis that is threatening the power supply. But the minister forms part of a government that denies climate change, as well as the need to preserve forests and the environment overall.

Brazil is experiencing “the worst drought in its history,” he said in a message to the nation on Aug. 31 to announce incentives to reduce consumption during the peak demand period – between 17:00 and 21:00 hours – by means of discounts on the electricity bill.

But the real push for savings is a gradual rise in the electricity bill by the government since May, when dry season began with reservoirs at critical levels, similar to those of 2001, when Brazil had to resort to heavy rationing to avoid an energy collapse.

At that time, hydropower was overwhelmingly predominant, accounting for more than 85 percent of the electricity consumed in the country.

There were very few thermal power plants. Since then, various administrations have fomented construction of thermal plants, boosting energy security to the detriment of the environment by increasing the use of fossil fuels, and of consumers, by raising the cost of electricity.

  1. Roxanne Hubesch, Maciej Mazur, Karl Föger, P. R. Selvakannan, Suresh K. Bhargava. Zeolites on 3D-printed open metal framework structure: metal migration into zeolite promoted catalytic cracking of endothermic fuels for flight vehicles. Chemical Communications, 2021; DOI: 10.1039/D1CC04246G

Developed by researchers at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, the highly versatile catalysts are cost-effective to make and simple to scale.

The team’s lab demonstrations show the 3D printed catalysts could potentially be used to power hypersonic flight while simultaneously cooling the system.

The research is published in the Royal Society of Chemistry journal, Chemical Communications.

Lead researcher Dr Selvakannan Periasamy said their work tackled one of the biggest challenges in the development of hypersonic aircraft: controlling the incredible heat that builds up when planes fly at more than five times the speed of sound.

“Our lab tests show the 3D printed catalysts we’ve developed have great promise for fuelling the future of hypersonic flight,” Periasamy said.

“Powerful and efficient, they offer an exciting potential solution for thermal management in aviation — and beyond.

“With further development, we hope this new generation of ultra-efficient 3D printed catalysts could be used to transform any industrial process where overheating is an ever-present challenge.”

Need for speed

Only a few experimental planes have reached hypersonic speed (defined as above Mach 5 — over 6,100km an hour or 1.7km per second).

In theory, a hypersonic aircraft could travel fromLondon to New York in less than 90 minutes but many challenges remain in the development of hypersonic air travel, such as the extreme heat levels.

First author and PhD researcher Roxanne Hubesch said using fuel as a coolant was one of the most promising experimental approaches to the overheating problem.

“Fuels that can absorb heat while powering an aircraft are a key focus for scientists, but this idea relies on heat-consuming chemical reactions that need highly efficient catalysts,” Hubesch said.

“Additionally, the heat exchangers where the fuel comes in contact with the catalysts must be as small as possible, because of the tight volume and weight constraints in hypersonic aircraft.”

To make the new catalysts, the team 3D printed tiny heat exchangers made of metal alloys and coated them with synthetic minerals known as zeolites.

The researchers replicated at lab scale the extreme temperatures and pressures experienced by the fuel at hypersonic speeds, to test the functionality of their design.

Miniature chemical reactors

When the 3D printed structures heat up, some of the metal moves into the zeolite framework- a process crucial to the unprecedented efficiency of the new catalysts.

“Our 3D printed catalysts are like miniature chemical reactors and what makes them so incredibly effective is that mix of metal and synthetic minerals,” Hubesch said.

“It’s an exciting new direction for catalysis, but we need more research to fully understand this process and identify the best combination of metal alloys for the greatest impact.”

The next steps for the research team from RMIT’s Centre for Advanced Materials and Industrial Chemistry (CAMIC) include optimising the 3D printed catalysts by studying them with X-ray synchrotron techniques and other in-depth analysis methods.

The researchers also hope to extend the potential applications of the work into air pollution control for vehicles and miniature devices to improve indoor air quality — especially important in managing airborne respiratory viruses like COVID-19.

CAMIC Director, Distinguished Professor Suresh Bhargava, said the trillion-dollar chemical industry was largely based on old catalytic technology.

“This third generation of catalysis can be linked with 3D printing to create new complex designs that were previously not possible,” Bhargava said.

“Our new 3D printed catalysts represent a radical new approach that has real potential to revolutionise the future of catalysis around the world.”

The 3D printed catalysts were produced using Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF) technology in the Digital Manufacturing Facility, part of RMIT’s Advanced Manufacturing Precinct.

Reyna’s critical condition due to food poisoning not only made Andin sad, but also made Aldebaran angry and blamed himself. From the teaser video uploaded by the official Instagram account of the Love Association, Wednesday (8/9/2021), Aldebaran regrets that he missed entering the cake in the house.

“I shouldn’t have allowed the food to enter the house,” said Aldebaran.

Andin, who was in tears, seemed to calm Aldebaran by saying that Reyna’s incident with food poisoning was not Aldebaran’s fault. Unable to accept his family being harassed, Aldebaran is determined to find the culprit.

“This is outrageous, I will look for the perpetrators until they are found,” said Aldebaran.

Meanwhile, at Aldebaran’s house, Angga (Kevin Hillers) unceremoniously confronts a mysterious motorcycle taxi driver who often hangs out in front of the Alfahri family’s residence.

“Why are you hanging out here, you want to be a spy here,” Angga scolded.

As Angga suspected, was it true that the mysterious motorcycle taxi driver was a spy ordered by Aldebaran’s enemy who wanted to harm and terrorize Alfahri’s family? Then how is Reyna’s next health condition after going through a critical period due to hazardous chemical poisoning? What revenge action will Aldebaran and Angga take?

Don’t miss the continuation and excitement of the continuation of the story of Ikatan Cinta, which is broadcast tonight at 19:45 WIB only on RCTI and can also be enjoyed through the RCTI Plus streaming application service.
