Modis oneman show triumphs again in state polls

first_imgIndia’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Reuters file photoSensing his party’s drive for votes in India’s most politically prized state had stalled, Prime Minister Narendra Modi cleared his schedule and thrust himself into the heart of the battle.“Our election campaign has hit a roadblock,” Modi told campaign managers and two federal ministers in Delhi last month, a week before the sixth of seven phases of voting was to begin in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh.“I don’t want to feel that I could have pushed myself a little more,” Modi was quoted as saying by a close aide who attended the meeting.For three full days the leader of the world’s largest democracy camped out in the holy city of Varanasi, his parliamentary constituency, walking the ancient streets and stopping at Hindu temples to seek blessings, despite warnings from aides about his security and the risk to his reputation had his party come up short.On Saturday the gamble paid off: Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) scored a thumping victory in Uttar Pradesh, home to one in six Indians, winning the biggest majority in the state for any party since 1977.The triumph vindicates Modi’s decision to turn the campaign into a referendum on his own performance after his shock decision last November to abolish high-denomination banknotes, a move he framed as a fight for the poor against the corrupt rich.“We were always nervous that overexposing the prime minister in the final stages of the election could make us look desperate,” said Keshav Prasad Maurya, the BJP’s state leader in Uttar Pradesh.As it turned out, Modi’s victory confounded even the most bullish voter surveys. The BJP won 312 of the 403 seats in the state assembly and, with 39.7 percent of the vote, almost matched its showing in Uttar Pradesh in the 2014 general election, when it claimed the biggest parliamentary majority in three decades.“Modi’s magic has destroyed the opposition and silenced sceptics in the party,” Maurya told Reuters on Saturday, as the scale of the victory became clear.TWO-TERM MODIThe win clears a path to victory for Modi at a 2019 general election, and gives him a free hand to consolidate his grip over a state that sends the highest number of federal lawmakers to parliament.That has raised hopes among investors that the BJP will embark on a round of new reforms to boost growth in Asia’s third-largest economy, and try to tackle the corruption and red tape that has long undermined India’s potential.Economists now expect Modi to launch initiatives aimed at flushing out ill-gotten gains from real estate, gold and campaign finance.But they caution that his biggest task remains transforming India’s economy into one that creates enough jobs for an emerging generation that is desperate to give up life on the farm for a more prosperous future.“Jobs is the biggest risk,” said Rajiv Kumar, an economist at the Delhi-based Centre for Policy Research. “That’s where he has to focus very hard and it could mean reforms as radical as demonetisation.”Modi’s BJP now heads the government in states where more than half of Indians live, while the Congress party, which has ruled India for most of the 70 years since independence, leads in regions covering less than 8 percent of the population.Success will increase the pressure on Modi to provide for an increasingly aspirational nation of 1.3 billion people, half of whom are aged 25 or under.“He has to do a very delicate tightrope walk between being reformist and populist,” said Nilanjan Mukhopadhyay, a journalist and biographer of Modi. “The problem in India is that people think reforms are pro-rich.”COMMUNAL TONEModi relied on his own charisma to clinch crucial votes in poor and agrarian Uttar Pradesh, but his campaign manager Amit Shah also takes credit for fielding the right candidates in a region where many people vote along caste and religious lines.Critics accuse Shah and Modi of “social engineering” and of switching to a more communally divisive tone to fire up their Hindu base as voting, staggered over the course of a month, progressed.Shah vowed to construct a Hindu temple on a razed mosque site and ban the slaughter of cows, worshipped by millions of Hindus.On the campaign trail, too, Modi played up religious divisions by asking why the state government ensured there were no power cuts in the Muslim holy month of Ramadan but not during the Hindu festival of Diwali.Still, the BJP likely collected minority votes, including Muslim women whom he courted by questioning an Islamic practice that allows men to divorce their wives with three simple words.“The results prove that Muslims and backward caste groups voted for the BJP,” said R.K. Mishra, a political analyst in Lucknow, the state capital of Uttar Pradesh.last_img read more

The book was a No. 1 New York Times bestseller after one week of sales, and to date has sold more than 5.9 million units in all formats and editions in the U.S. and Canada.Separately, Barack and Michelle Obama have established a production company, Higher Ground Productions, which has a multiyear development deal with Netflix. On Tuesday, Higher Ground named Priya Swaminathan, formerly with Annapurna, and Tonia Davis, who hails from Chernin Entertainment, as co-heads of the venture.The “BookTube” special featuring Michelle Obama comes from the YouTube Originals group, led by global head of original content Susanne Daniels.Last fall, YouTube switched up its strategy on original productions to what it calls “Single Slate,” under which it will make all of its originals available on a free, ad-supported basis — signaling a move toward projects with broad, mainstream appeal rather than those built around YouTube personalities.

A Startup Brings HighTech Sports Analytics to School Teams

first_img 3 min read July 15, 2013 Enroll Now for Free Computer engineer Vasu Kulkarni, a lifelong basketball fanatic, had no luck getting his dream job with Nike or the NBA after graduating from the University of Pennsylvania in 2008. But he knew he wanted to stay “connected to the game of basketball.” He found that connection in 2009, when he launched Krossover, a company that set out to bring high-tech sports analytics to high-school and college athletics.It’s a Saturday-morning ritual for student basketball teams everywhere: gathering to watch the film from Friday night’s game. While coaches may pinpoint mistakes, and players may zero in on their own failures or successes, few high-school and college athletic programs have the technology to make full use of those films the way professional teams can.Scoring big: Krossover’s Vasu Kulkarni.Photo© David JohnsonThe online video and analytics platform from New York City-based Krossover bridges this technology gap. Coaches upload video after a game; within roughly 24 hours, it is analyzed and indexed by four Krossover employees, who tag hundreds of plays for each athlete, such as shots, steals, rebounds, assists and fouls. Later the coach can access the game video on Krossover’s site and sort through stats, choosing to view, for example, the number of rebounds achieved by the center. Players, meanwhile, can use Krossover to splice together all their dunks in one video file and share it with whomever they like.In 2010, while peddling a crude prototype of his product at U.S. basketball camps, Kulkarni met one high-school coach whose team had lost 63 games in a row. The coach signed on for Krossover, and after using the product for one season, his team came within one game of the Massachusetts state championship. “Stories like his have helped us to show that there’s a competitive advantage to using our product,” Kulkarni says.Packages start at $799 per season; added services include the option to cut turnaround time and to provide stats on the opposing team as well.Last year Krossover pulled in more than $3.5 million in angel funding to expand its service to cover lacrosse and football in time for the 2013 season. Many investors, Kulkarni says, are attracted to the inherent “sexiness” of sports businesses. “While a lot of traditional technology VCs shy away from sports, most professional investors have some sports connection–they played in high school or college, or they have kids playing,” he explains. “Being involved in a sports business is fun.”Greg Cangialosi, CEO of Nucleus Ventures, invested in Krossover individually and then brought Kulkarni to his home base of Baltimore to organize a round of funding with other local angel investors.”I was impressed with the product and the market,” Cangialosi says. “There are 250,000 sports teams that could use Krossover in high school and college. And Vasu is impressive. He has the ability to get things done, or what a lot of investors call ‘the hustle.'”Sounds like the kind of player any coach would want on their team.

How perceptive is Canada compared to other countries Take the quiz here

first_img Posted by Thursday, September 13, 2018 Share Travelweek Group How perceptive is Canada compared to other countries? Take the quiz herecenter_img TORONTO — Way to go, Canada! We’re not as ignorant as other countries of the world.According to a new survey from Ipsos MORI, Canada ranks 32nd in The Perils of Perception 2017 survey. The good news? The United States fared even worse in 23rd place.The study, says Ipsos, highlights how wrong the online public across 38 countries are about key global issues and features of the population in their home country. A total of 29,133 interviews were conducted between Sept. 28-Oct. 19, 2017 via the Ipsos Online Panel system.“Across all 38 countries in the study, each population gets a lot wrong,” said Bobby Duffy, Managing Director of Ipsos MORI Social Research Institute, London. “We are often most incorrect on factors that are widely discussed in the media, such as deaths from terrorism, murder rates, immigration and teenage pregnancy.”Duffy added that there are multiple reasons for these errors, “from our struggle with maths and proportions, to media and political coverage of issues, to social psychology explanations of our mental shortcuts or biases.” But based on previous studies, he added, “this is partly because we overestimate what we worry about: the more we see coverage of an issue, the more prevalent we thing it is, especially if that coverage is frightening or threatening.”More news:  Can you guess the one and only hotel company to rank on Indeed’s Top Workplaces in Canada list?South Africa received the dubious honour of being the most inaccurate in their perceptions, with Brazil and the Philippines rounding out the top three.Here is the complete list:South AfricaBrazilThe PhilippinesPeruIndiaIndonesiaColombiaMexicoTurkeySaudi ArabiaArgentinaItalyChileJapanMalaysiaFranceSouth KoreaHungaryNew ZealandNetherlandsHong KongPolandUnited States of AmericaRussiaGermanyAustraliaChinaSingaporeIsraelGreat BritainBelgiumCanadaSerbiaMontenegroSpainDenmarkNorwaySwedenHow well do you think you know your stuff about Canada’s top issues?

•  Investors like MLPs because of their high yield

first_img •  Investors like MLPs because of their high yields… Regular readers know that the Federal Reserve cut its key interest rate to zero in 2008. It’s left it there ever since. This pushed interest rates to ridiculously low levels, making it difficult for investors to earn a decent yield. Take the 10-year Treasury, for example. In 2007, its yield averaged 4.63%. Today, it yields just 2.05%. From the beginning of 2009 through June 2014 (when energy prices peaked), AMZ returned 294%. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 returned just 110%. One big reason for AMZ’s great performance is that MLPs were one of the only investments where investors could earn a decent yield. Many investors bought MLPs thinking they were safe ways to invest in America’s booming energy sector. After all, MLPs were supposed to earn steady income streams that didn’t depend on the price of oil, natural gas, or coal… Earlier this year, The Wall Street Journal explained why MLPs are supposed to be insulated from volatile energy prices. To manage swings in fuel prices, the partnerships have contracts that guarantee them minimum prices for oil and gas. Such contracts, or hedges, will help them weather lower prices in the near term. In the same article, The Wall Street Journal noted that many of those hedges expired in 2015. That’s been a big problem. The price of oil has fallen 48% over the past year. And the price of natural gas has fallen 39%. Many MLPs are now exposed to these weak prices. And it’s starting to show up on their income statements: Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) is a pipeline MLP worth $22 billion. The company’s quarterly revenues fell by an average of 43% during the first two quarters of 2015. Last year, the company averaged 13% quarterly revenue growth during the first and second quarters. Magellan Midstream Partners (MMP) is a pipeline MLP worth $16 billion. Its quarterly revenues dropped 9% during the first and second quarters of 2015. Last year, the company’s revenues increased 27% on average during the same two quarters. MarkWest Energy Partners (MWE) is another pipeline MLP. It’s worth $9 billion. Its quarterly revenues fell by 10% on average during the first two quarters of 2015. Last year, the company’s revenues increased 31% on average during the first two quarter. •  MLPs have crashed with the rest of the energy market… The chart below shows the performance of AMZ over the past year. As you can see, it’s down 36% in just twelve months. Regards, Justin Spittler Delray Beach, Florida October 06, 2015 We want to hear from you. If you have a question or comment, please send it to feedback@caseyresearch.com. We read every email that comes in, and we’ll publish comments, questions, and answers that we think other readers will find useful. – Urgent Announcement: Banking Insider Warns: “If you were born before 1969, you should move 20% of your savings here now.” More than 60,000 Americans are now following “Ronald Reagan’s Secret Retirement Income Plan,” and moving their money out of the traditional financial system into one little-known safe haven where wealth grows tax-free… This 100% legal “tax shelter” has proven—over 232 years—to protect and grow wealth in times of recession, depression, inflation, and even dollar weakness.  Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, and at least 52 other Washington officials have already moved a portions of their cash here…  The big banks have already moved $143 billion here… and plan to move billions more. Now, you can find out all the details for FREE. Click here to claim your free starter kit. The “toll takers” of the energy industry have crashed… The Alerian MLP Index (AMZ) lost 22% last quarter. It was the index’s worst quarter ever. AMZ lost an incredible 15% in September alone. AMZ tracks 50 of the biggest master-limited partnerships, or MLPs. Most MLPs act as “toll roads” for the energy sector. Natural gas pipeline companies are a common type of MLP. Unlike natural gas producers that look for natural gas and pull it out of the ground, a pipeline MLP helps move natural gas from one place to another. These companies typically charge a set fee for each cubic foot of gas they transport, regardless of the price of natural gas. MLPs trade on public stock exchanges, but they’re a little different from most stocks. They don’t pay corporate taxes. And they have to distribute nearly all of their income to investors. Because of this unique structure, MLPs generally pay high yields. AMZ currently yields 7.99%. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 yields just 2.25%. •  The market for MLPs has exploded in recent years… The number of MLPs jumped from 32 in 2003 to over 100 last year. And between 2008 and 2014, the value of the MLP industry jumped from under $100 billion to over $500 billion. America’s booming energy market helped fuel this explosive growth. Regular readers know that U.S. oil production has more than doubled over the past six years. U.S. natural gas production also jumped 40% between 2004 and 2014. More oil and natural gas production means more oil and natural gas must be processed, transported, and stored…which benefits MLPs. Recommended Links Doug Casey Issues Warning to America From His Secluded 1,235 Acre Farm: “This is a very bad situation. The U.S. is digging itself in deeper and deeper.” Click here to learn more. — A big reason for the selling is that investors are worried MLPs will cut their payouts. So far, that hasn’t happened… Not one midstream MLP cut its distribution from the beginning of 2014 through the second quarter of 2015. In fact, the 25 midstream MLPs tracked by the index actually raised distributions a total of 111 times during that timeframe. • But that doesn’t mean you should buy MLPs… E.B. Tucker, editor of The Casey Report explains why MLPs are dangerous: Many investors blindly buy MLPs for their rich yields without understanding what they’re buying… MLPs are legally required to pay out at least 90% of their profits to investors. After MLPs pay investors, there’s almost no money left to invest back in the business. That means MLPs have only two options when they need money to pay for repairs, maintenance, and upgrades. They can issue new stock, or they can raise money by selling bonds. Neither option is attractive for MLP investors. The bond market doesn’t want to loan MLPs money right now. MLPs that desperately needs cash are going to pay out the nose to get it. The only other choice is to issue more shares…which reduces the value of existing shares. Chart of the Day MLPs pay some of the highest yields in the market… Today’s chart compares AMZ’s yield to other types of investments. As you can see, MLPs pay roughly triple what stocks in the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) yield. MLPs also pay twice as much as real estate investment trusts (REITs) and utilities. However, this doesn’t mean MLPs are a good investment. As we explained earlier, MLPs have several problems including falling revenues and a lack of good financing options. We don’t recommend buying MLPs as a group at today’s prices.last_img read more

Two groups have been chosen to set up new centres

first_imgTwo groups have been chosen to set up new centres for independent living (CIL) in Wales, doubling the number of CILs in the country.The new centres will be located in Ceredigion, in the west of the country, and Flintshire, in the north, and will both be run and controlled by disabled people.Although there are only two existing CILs in Wales, the long-term aim is to have one in every one of its 22 counties.The two new CILs were selected by Disability Wales, the Wales Co-operative Centre (WCC), and Dewis Centre for Independent Living, as part of the £318,000 Welsh government-funded Enabling Wales programme.Disability Wales said it hoped they would provide “a kick start to developing more CILs across Wales”.The two groups will now receive support from Disability Wales, WCC and Dewis CIL as they work towards opening their doors to disabled people next March.That support will include help with the bids they will need to make to local authorities, the Welsh government and other sources of funding to allow them to meet their running costs.Disability Wales said the two groups would need to “strike a balance between their traditional campaigning role… with the need to operate successfully within a highly competitive commercial environment, and to manage the potential conflicts of interest when delivering public contracts”.The Ceredigion CIL will focus on providing information and advice – including disability equality training; self-advocacy; offering support to victims of hate crime; campaigning; and fundraising – and will be run by the disabled people’s organisation Disabled People Together, as well as the non-user-led groups Mencap Ceredigion and Creative Lifestyle Solutions.Rhiannon Hicks, Enabling Wales project officer at Disability Wales, said: “The Ceredigion group were successful as they showed a strong understanding of organisations led by disabled people for disabled people.“They also have a strong commitment to the social model of disability, as well as good partnerships with relevant third sector bodies.”The Flintshire CIL will be run by the user-led Flintshire Disability Forum (FDF), and will provide services such as help with managing personal budgets; campaigning; recruitment and training of personal assistants; assistance completing application forms; and equipment hire.Hicks said: “The FDF were successful as they have a strong track record of project delivery, and of securing funding. They also have strong partnerships.”She added: “I very much look forward to working with both groups in the next stage of the project.”Rhian Davies (pictured), director of Disability Wales, said: “We are delighted that following an 18-month long programme of training, development and coaching, working with 65 disabled people across Wales, we have achieved our goal in being able to select two emerging CILs and support their development over the remainder of the Enabling Wales project.“CILs are social enterprises that deliver services run by disabled people for disabled people and offer a new and creative model of provision in line with what people actually need to achieve independent living and well-being as well as maximise scarce resources.”Disability Wales said it hoped the new organisations would in time be able to support other groups towards becoming CILs, while it would itself be providing a “tool kit” on how to set up a CIL.Carl Sargeant, the Welsh government’s cabinet secretary for communities and children, congratulated the two groups, and said: “I am sure that, with the support of the Wales Cooperative Centre and Dewis CIL, they will develop and grow into sustainable enterprises which will promote independent living for disabled people and provide them with the services they need to support their well-being.”Picture by Natasha Hirstlast_img read more

first_imgThe government wants to increase the number of people who use personal health budgets (PHBs) to choose their own health and social care support from 40,000 to as many as 200,000 over the next five years.It hasapproved extending legal rights to PHBs to disabled people eligible for fundingfrom NHS wheelchair services, and those eligible for aftercare services undersection 117 of the Mental Health Act.But it alsosignalled that these rights would eventually be extended to other groups,including people with ongoing social care needs who also make regular andcontinuing use of particular NHS services; people leaving the armed services whoare eligible for ongoing NHS services; and autistic people and those withlearning difficulties who are eligible for ongoing NHS care.PHBs giveindividuals a pot of money to spend on their health and wellbeing needs, inagreement with a healthcare professional.Manydisabled campaigners have supported the expansion of PHBs, arguing that theycould help deliver independent living for disabled people, whileothers have raised concerns that they could be part of a creepingprivatisation of the NHS, and that they are based on the same “failing” modelused with social care personal budgets.Currently,only adults receiving NHS Continuing Healthcare, and children and young peoplewho receive continuing care, have the right to a PHB.But the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC, pictured) and NHS England have now published their response to a consultation, which ended last June, on extending that right to other groups and the possibility of extending that to include a right to have the PHB managed through direct payments.The governmentresponse says people “value being involved in the planning of their care, beingable to make choices and personalise their support so it best meets their needs”.And it saysthe evidence suggests that those who can do that “are more satisfied with theircare, have better outcomes, and are able to explore more innovative approachesto meet their needs”.Theconsultation also asked for views on whether the government should bringtogether PHBs and social care personal budgets – and educational needs in thecase of disabled children and young people – into an integrated personalbudget.Theconsultation results suggested widespread support for a further expansion of PHBs,with 87 per cent (330 of 379 people) of those who answered the question sayingthey believed that autistic people and those with learning difficulties who areeligible for ongoing NHS care should have a legal right to a PHB or anintegrated personal budget.And morethan 90 per cent supported extending the right to a PHB or integrated personalbudget to those using NHS wheelchair services, with 87 per cent saying thisgroup should also have a right to receive that budget via direct payments, ifappropriate.DHSC and NHSEngland said their ambition was “to move towards joined up and integratedprovision across health and social care” through a “comprehensive model ofintegrated, personalised care” and with PHBs and integrated personal budgets “akey component” of this plan.These plansare set out in the new NHS LongTerm Plan.Thegovernment and NHS England said they believed that more than 200,000 people wouldhave a PHB by 2023-24, including many from the five groups they consulted onlast year.Although thegovernment is only taking forward legislation on those using wheelchairservices and mental health aftercare, it says it will “continue to furtherexplore both the other groups we consulted on, and additional groups who webelieve could also benefit from having a right to have a personal health budget”.Someadditional groups that could benefit and were mentioned by those taking part inthe consultation included people with dementia, people receiving end-of-lifecare, and those receiving community equipment.NHS Englandsaid it would continue to work with clinical commissioning groups to “designand test” the use of PHBs for other groups of people and service areas.Careminister Caroline Dinenage said: “I’ve seen first-hand how personal health budgets can givepeople a new lease of life, granting them the ability to enjoy their lives tothe full. “Thesebudgets help to join up health and social care services, improving people’sexperiences and outcomes whilst ensuring value for money for taxpayers.“We are therefore extending access so many more people can benefit, a key part of our NHS Long Term Plan which will see personalised care become the norm for millions more.”A note from the editor:Please consider making a voluntary financial contribution to support the work of DNS and allow it to continue producing independent, carefully-researched news stories that focus on the lives and rights of disabled people and their user-led organisations.

New technology could change the way gene editing is approached in future

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Apr 4 2019Gene editing has been a much sought after and controversial technology. Last month, part of the World Health Organization called for an international registry to track all research into editing the human genome.Purdue University researchers, including one who was inspired by the cancer death of a close friend, have developed a new technology that could change how gene editing is approached in the future. The research team presents the work on April 4 at the National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Orlando.One of the most widely used methods for gene editing is CRISPR-Cas9 technology. The method requires a certain sequence or motif for function that restricts modifications.”CRISPR can be programmed to cut DNA at specific regions to make precise edits in an organism that can increase sustainable manufacturing, treat disease and even create better crops,” said Kevin Solomon, an assistant professor of agricultural and biological engineering, who leads the Purdue research team. “However, it requires a certain sequence for function that restricts modifications to certain regions.”Related StoriesMother calls for protein shake regulation after daughter diesEMBL study reveals uncoupling between chromatin topology and gene expressionResearchers discover gene linked to healthy aging in wormsMany diseases in humans, including several types of cancer, are caused by mutations at specific sites in the genome. The Purdue team created a method that uses the protein Argonaute from Natronobacterium gregoryi (NgAgo) and supplied DNA as a guide to enable modification anywhere on the genome, providing new options to potentially improve manufacturing, disease treatment, drug discovery and crop production.”While there is still work to do, we have shown that these molecular scissors can edit regions of DNA previously inaccessible by current technologies,” said 2nd Lt. Michael Mechikoff, a master’s student working on the project.”One of my best friends died from a cancer caused by a genetic variant several years ago,” said Kok Zhi Lee, a doctoral student who works on the research team in Solomon’s lab. “I always dreamed of a different scenario for my friend – living in an era where genetic engineering is a regular and safe option to correct genetic disorders. With the potential of our technology, I anticipate a future where genetic disease is history for human beings.”The team has worked with the Purdue Research Foundation Office of Technology Commercialization to file a utility patent on the technology. They are looking for partners and others interested in developing and licensing it.Their work aligns with Purdue’s Giant Leaps celebration, acknowledging the university’s global advancements in health as part of Purdue’s 150th anniversary. It is one of the four themes of the yearlong celebration’s Ideas Festival, designed to showcase Purdue as an intellectual center solving real-world issues.Source: https://www.purdue.edu/last_img read more

A Pair of Shipwrecked WWIIEra Submarines Just Vanished from the Sea Near

first_imgMore than 100 World War II-era shipwrecks decorate the seafloor around Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore — and now, there are two fewer. According to Dutch media reports, a pair of submarines that sank off the coast of Malaysia in 1941 mysteriously vanished late last week, leaving behind only some broken scraps and ghostly outlines in the sand. The wrecked subs — Dutch vessels named HNLMS O 16 and HNLMS K XVII — also contained the remains of 79 crewmen, which are now missing. [17 Mysterious Shipwrecks You Can See on Google Earth] How does a shipwreck simply disappear? According to Dutch government officials, the subs were likely stolen by scrap-metal scavengers, who have made a habit of pilfering old wrecks from the region. As many as 40 World War II-era ships have been partially or completely dismantled by scavengers, a 2017 report by the Guardian found, resulting in the desecration of the remains of some 4,500 crewmen who went down with their ships.Headbutting Tiny Worms Are Really, Really LoudThis rapid strike produces a loud ‘pop’ comparable to those made by snapping shrimps, one of the most intense biological sounds measured at sea.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Why Is It ‘Snowing’ Salt in the Dead Sea?01:53 facebook twitter 发邮件 reddit 链接https://www.livescience.com/65894-dutch-wwii-era-submarines-vanished.html?jwsource=cl已复制直播00:0000:3500:35  Salvaging a shipwreck usually requires blowing the vessel apart with explosives, then spending days or weeks hauling any valuable metals up onto the surface with a crane. For their trouble, scavengers can come away with millions of dollars’ worth of steel per ransacked ship, plus other spoils, such as copper cables and phosphor bronze propellers, according to the Guardian article. Wartime shipwrecks are protected under international treaties as the unmarked graves of departed soldiers — however, that has not stopped salvagers from destroying the wrecks of the American, British, Dutch, English, Australian and Japanese vessels resting in South East Asian waters. In March 2018, Malaysian officials signed an agreement with the Dutch foreign minister to better protect Dutch war wrecks in Malaysia’s waters. (Parts of Malaysia were once under Dutch colonial rule.) The agreement followed a string of particularly serious shipwreck desecrations; in 2016, the wrecks of three Dutch warships vanished from the bottom of the Java Sea off the coast of Indonesia, along with the remains of 2,200 people, the Guardian reported.
