Les 8 actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 22 février

first_imgLes 8 actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 22 févrierLa naissance d’une supernova, des gravures préhistoriques et les méfaits de la télévision. Voici votre concentré d’actualités scientifiques pour ce 22 février.  – Regarder trop la télévision serait mauvais pour la santé. Selon une étude américaine, l’excès de télévision augmenterait le risque de développer des caillots sanguins. Une tendance qui apparaîtrait même chez les personnes ayant une activité physique régulière. – Des plaisanciers ont découvert une étrange masse blanche flottant dans les eaux au large de Hawaï. Après que leurs photos ont fait le tour du net, des spécialistes n’ont pas tardé à résoudre le mystère. La masse était en réalité le placenta d’une baleine. – La Préhistoire se dévoile en Bretagne. Près de Brest, des chercheurs ont découvert des plaquettes gravées et des outils en silex vieux de 14.000 ans. Les gravures représentent les plus anciennes traces d’art découvertes en Bretagne jusqu’ici.   – Les ingénieurs de la NASA conçoivent actuellement une nouvelle combinaison pour les astronautes. Elle aura la particularité d’inclure des toilettes pour sauver les voyageurs spatiaux en cas d’urgence. Si le sujet peut faire sourire, le problème est pris très au sérieux par les ingénieurs.  – Une firme américaine aurait trouvé un nouveau traitement contre l’allergie à l’arachide. Son secret ? Des capsules de farine d’arachide. Testées sur 500 enfants, elles auraient permis à 67% d’entre eux de devenir tolérants à la cacahuète.À lire aussiInfection, gaspillage et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 29 août- Un astronome amateur a réussi à capturer la naissance d’une supernova, l’explosion d’une étoile massive.

86 cite pay as the most important aspect of their job

first_imgMore than four-fifths (86%) of respondents cite pay as the most important aspect of their job, according to research by Paymentsense.Its survey of 2,000 UK participants also found that 79% of respondents feel that having 20 or more holiday days is most important when it comes to their job.The research also found:72% of respondents believe it is important to have a good workplace pension scheme.34% of respondents say that having a good maternity scheme is important to them so that they are covered financially when they decide to have a child, and 25% feel that childcare schemes are important to provide financial security when deciding to have a family.32% of respondents want the opportunity to work flexibly.65% of respondents who have reached their career peak feel that a well-paid salary is important, compared to 20 or more annual holiday days (47%), and opportunities to progress (5%).Guy Moreve (pictured), head of marketing at Paymentsense, said: “Although money is the biggest motivator, it is shocking to see how many Brits choose money over passion when it comes to working. Employers have a certain amount of responsibility for the motivation and wellbeing of the workforce and for a team to function to their best of its ability, all members must be fully engaged and committed.“Employees losing their motivation or passion for their role can be detrimental to business, therefore, employers are advised to really listen and respond to employees’ needs to ensure high levels of engagement throughout [their organisation]. Spotting the warning signs of a disengaged employee early and addressing them quickly can help encourage retention.”last_img read more

Netanyahu threatens Hamas with very strong blows

first_imgBenjamin NetanyahuIsrael’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday threatened to inflict “very strong blows” on Hamas after fresh violence along the border with the Gaza Strip controlled by the Islamist group.”Hamas has apparently not understood the message — if these attacks do not stop, they will be stopped in another way, in the form of very, very strong blows”, Netanyahu said during the weekly cabinet meeting.”We are very close to another type of action which would include very strong blows. If Hamas is intelligent, it will cease fire and violence now”, he added.Israel on Friday suspended fuel deliveries to the Gaza Strip, after fresh protests along the border that saw seven Palestinians killed by Israeli troops.The suspension came days after fuel supplies had begun running to the enclave, in a fresh bid to ease an Israeli blockade that has lasted more than 10 years.A UN-brokered deal had seen Qatar, a longtime Hamas backer, pledge to pay $60 million (52 million euros) for fuel to be brought into Gaza over six months to supply the strip’s sole power plant.On Saturday, Israel’s defence minister Avigdor Lieberman said fuel deliveries would only resume if there was a “total cessation of violence, the launching of incendiary ballons (from Gaza towards Israel) and the use of burning tyres against Israeli towns” near the enclave.Hamas has organised months of often-violent border protests, with at least 205 Palestinians and one Israeli killed since 30 March.The protesters are demanding to be allowed to return to land now inside Israel, from which their families fled or were displaced during the 1948 war surrounding the creation of the Jewish state.Israel accuses Hamas of using the protests as a cover for attacks.last_img read more

There are also some other graves here. I request to remove these,” he said.The minister made the request participating in the general discussion on the proposed national budget for 2019-20 fiscal.Similar demands were raised in the 9th and 10th parliament by several ministers and MPs to restore the parliament to its original design by Louis I Kahn. Bangladesh also collected the original design in 2016, but no initiative to remove these structures is visible yet.Minister Mozammel said Bangabandhu formed Bangladesh Krishak Sramik Awami League (BAKSAL) to establish democracy of the exploited people.He said Zia and his subservient turned the economic programme -BAKSAL – into an expletive through the killing father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.”In fact, no political party was stopped by BAKSAL. Rather the national party was formed by suspending activities of political parties for the time being. The activities of Awami League were also suspended,” he said.Describing the government’s various activities on providing facilities to freedom fighters, the minister said his ministry has taken an initiative to keep experience of every freedom fighter in record.The experience of every freedom fighter will be recorded for 10-20 minutes. “These records will be preserved permanently,” he added.last_img read more

Thats why the QB did his part to make a reunion i

first_imgThat’s why the QB did his part to make a reunion in the desert happen.“Yeah, I’ve talked to him over the years.  I think he was looking for the right fit and for a number of reasons we were the right fit and thankfully we were,” he said. “I’m always texting and calling and recruiting when I can.  I don’t know how much of a role it played, but just playing in this stadium on this grass, practicing at our facility and just kind of looking at the team, I think we kind of had everything he was looking for.”According to Gresham, Palmer played a significant role.“He did a good job recruiting me,” Gresham said. “He stayed in my phone a lot and kept giving me reminders. He sold it well, so I’m happy to make it home for the year.”As for what kind of role Gresham will play for his new team, the tight end said he was promised nothing. He said all the team guaranteed was a chance to come in, play and help the team try and get to the Super Bowl.He’s hopeful it won’t be long until he’s back on the field doing exactly that. When he does, he will put an end to what was an eventful — and sometimes frustrating — offseason. Jermaine Gresham chats with QB Carson Palmer. Photo courtesy of @AZCardinals Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact GLENDALE, Ariz. — In a lot of ways, Jermaine Gresham signing with the Arizona Cardinals made plenty of sense.The team was incredibly thin at the tight end position, and Gresham — a two-time Pro Bowl selection — could provide experience as well as ability.But in other ways, the pairing made little sense.In two years under head coach Bruce Arians, the Cardinals have rarely used the tight end in the passing game, with their leading receivers at the position in 2013 and 2014 — Rob Housler and John Carlson, respectively — combining for 72 catches, 804 yards and two touchdowns. Yet, Gresham chose to sign a one-year contract with the Cardinals, spurning a list of suitors that was rumored to include the New Orleans Saints, Oakland Raiders and Green Bay Packers.“I can’t really say, just very team-oriented and the owner and the GM did a good job selling me on what they had to offer,” Gresham said when asked why he chose the Cardinals. “It worked out well.”The 27-year-old Gresham caught 62 passes for 460 yards and five touchdowns last season. Along with San Diego’s Antonio Gates and Carolina’s Greg Olsen, he is one of three tight ends to have at least 40 receptions, 400 yards and four touchdowns in each of the last five seasons. He was available to the Cardinals at a discounted rate in large part because he is recovering from back surgery, and teams were likely unsure of whether or not he would be able to play at a high level.Like others before him, Gresham will play on a one-year contract in hopes of rebuilding his value and hopefully parlaying that into a bigger, long-term contract.The Cardinals are more than happy to play their part. In a way, Gresham can be a security blanket, for both quarterback Carson Palmer and the team itself. Prior to adding the former Bengal, the tight ends on Arizona’s roster had combined for eight catches and 109 yards, a total that rises to nine catches for 110 yards and one touchdown if you include playoffs. “I had a lot going on this offseason,” he said. “At the end of the day I find peace with playing football, so not being able to play football and dealing with all the other stuff, it was tough. But it’s all behind me now, I’m looking forward to the future now.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires – / 23 Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling 0 Comments   Share   “He’s been a Pro Bowl tight end.  I felt that we needed another veteran just in case some of the young guys falter.  I like the depth in that room; I really like the depth in the room now,” Arians said. “He’s a more than adequate blocker; he’s been an excellent receiver and a Pro Bowl player.  Just putting him in our system and finding a spot for him.”Gresham was not on the field for the first day of training camp Saturday, as he is on the PUP list to begin camp. Arians said the hope is to get him on the field soon, at least for walk throughs, and then for practices when he is ready to go.When he does make his return, though, Gresham’s learning curve may be a little easier due to the fact that he has a rapport with quarterback Carson Palmer. The two were teammates in Cincinnati in 2010 when Gresham, then a rookie, caught 52 passes for 471 yards and four touchdowns.So, the quarterback knows what his new weapon brings to the table.“Yeah, it’s big,” Palmer said of the signing. “He’s a mismatch against linebackers.  He can be a mismatch depending on the safety.  He’s really, really good in the run game and can pass block against defensive ends, which is rare for tight ends.  He’s just such a big, physical presence on the field.”last_img read more
