Small ghost bike for a young Toronto boy making a memorial for

first_imgTORONTO – Geoffrey Bercarich has been making “ghost bikes” for fallen cyclists for more than a decade, but he’s never made one this small.At his Toronto home, he stands beside a child’s bike — gleaming white from a fresh paint job — that is dedicated to Xavier Morgan, a five-year-old who crashed his bike on a city trail and fell onto a nearby six-lane roadway where he was killed by a car last week.“This is definitely the youngest child I’ve ever had to put a memorial up for,” Bercarich says, his voice trailing off. “I don’t want this to ever happen again. And this memorial is definitely not good enough, but it’s my way to show that every life is sacred.”Ghost bikes — reminders of the risks cyclists face — have cropped up around the country and across the world. In Toronto, Bercarich, along with the group Advocacy for Respect for Cyclists, has been building and maintaining them for years.On Saturday morning, Bercarich will be among a large group of cyclists expected to ride en masse, slowly, but surely, to the spot where Xavier died on Toronto’s Lake Shore Boulevard.Bercarich will bring his latest ghost bike with him, lock it to a nearby post and give the keys to Xavier’s aunt and uncle who are expected to be there, he says. The family can take the bike down if the memorial proves too painful.Since the boy’s death, Bercarich and other cyclists have called for a barrier to be put in place on the portion of the Martin Goodman Trail where Xavier fell onto the busy road. On Friday afternoon, city staff announced plans to erect fencing along that section of the trail.Xavier is so far the only cyclist to die this year in Toronto. Last year, one person died. There were four deaths in 2015, three in 2014 and four in 2013, according to Toronto police.Bercarich, 33, says he gets a call every time a cyclist is killed in the city.The latest case was no different. A friend called, sobbing, he says, repeating the words “tragedy” over and over before hanging up.“Then I got word that it was a five-year-old cyclist that went down,” he says. “Then I heard the five-year-old cyclist went to the same school I went to. Then I heard it was on the same trail that I learned to ride a bike on. And it hit really close to home — my home.”So Bercarich — who fixes bikes in his spare time and gives them away for free to those in need — got to work.He knew exactly which bike, among the dozens he has at his home, to paint for Xavier. It was his friend’s first bike, one she learned to ride on. She donated it to him a while ago and wanted something special done with it.It took him about two hours, using three cans of spray paint, to finish Xavier’s bike. First he laid on two coats of flat white paint.“The final coat is gloss, the overcoat, which creates a reflective surface so cars, when they fly by it, they’ll be able to see it better,” he says.After Xavier died, Toronto Mayor John Tory demanded a review of the safety of the city’s bike trails.“It is past time for us to have a hard look at safety on these trails,” he said.Bercarich, however, has little time for politicians’ words. He’s been hearing the same thing for years, he says.Between Jan. 1 and May 18, there have been 174 collisions between cyclists and motor vehicles, according to Toronto police data. There were 206 such incidents over the same time period last year. And those numbers don’t include doorings, cyclist versus cyclist, or cyclist versus pedestrian crashes.Bercarich says he wants Xavier’s family to know the little boy will be thought of for a very long time to come.“There are a lot of people who will not rest until some sort of consequences have been made because of his death,” he says. “We’re going to push really hard for a long time so his death doesn’t go unmarked by city councillors and planners.”last_img read more

King Mohammed VI to Visit Russia on March 15

Rabat – King Mohammed VI is scheduled to make an official visit to Russia on March 15. As Morocco World News reported last month, the Moroccan monarch will visit Moscow at the invitation of President Vladimir Putin.While the stated purpose of the visit is to strengthen economic and political ties between the two countries, analysts say that the timing of the visit signals that King Mohammed VI will seek to secure Moscow’s support for Morocco’s position on the Western Sahara conflict and its autonomy plan presented to the Security Council in 2007.Russia is one of the five permanent members of the Security Council and is a veto-wielding country. In addition, it is member of the Group of Friends of the Western Sahara. The group, which also includes the United States, France, the United Kingdom and Spain, is in charge of overseeing and discussing the draft resolution that the Security Council adopts in April of every year to renew the mandate of the United Nations Mission in the Western Sahara, known by its French acronym MINURSO. MINURSO’s mandate is up for renewal on April 30, 2016. Its renewal is based on the annual report that United Nations Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, submits to the Security Council in early April.King Mohammed VI’s visit comes against the backdrop of tensions between Morocco and the UN Secretary General, following Ban Ki-moon’s visit to Algiers and the Tindouf camps on March 5-7. During the visit, the UN chief referred to Morocco’s sovereignty over the Western Sahara as “occupation,” a description that has never been used by a sitting UN Secretary General, nor in any UN official document.In addition, Ban Ki-moon brought up the question of a referendum and said that MINURSO was ready to conduct one if the parties agreed to proceed with it. The statement was perceived by Rabat to be a deviation from Ban Ki-moon’s mandate and the framework of negotiations set out by the Security Council since 2007.On Tuesday, March 8, the Moroccan government issued a communiqué in which it denounced the statement made by Ban Ki-moon.“Morocco has seen, both in terms of the conduct of the visit and the content of the statements, that the Secretary General has abandoned his neutrality, objectivity and impartiality.” read more

East Timor National Council endorses draft on truth commission

The draft regulation gives the Commission a truth-telling function that will provide a historical record of past human rights violations between 25 April 1974 and 25 October 1999, according to the UN Transitional Administration in East Timor (UNTAET). It also establishes a Community Reconciliation Process for dealing with less serious offences that will not be prosecuted by the justice system. In other news, Manuel Gonsales Bere, former member of Dadurus Merah Putih militia, was sentenced to 14 years in prison yesterday for the stabbing murder of independence supporter Joao Gonsalves during the campaign of violence that followed the 1999 popular consultation in East Timor. The sentence was handed down by the Special Panel for Serious Crimes at the Dili District Court.In a related development, the Office of the Prosecutor General filed today an indictment charging three members of the Saka Loromonu militia with murder and maltreatment during the post-referendum violence. Rueben Monteiro Gonsalves (alias Alu), Lino de Carvalho and Ruben Pereira Tavares are accused of the murder of independence supporter Sabino dos Santos in Bobonaro district in September 1999. Mr. de Carvalho is currently detained in Becora prison in Dili on charges of beating three persons in Bobonaro district in April and May 1999. Mr. Gonsalves and Mr. Tavares are believed to be residing in West Timor, Indonesia. read more

De la nécessité de mieux protéger les écosystèmes

first_imgDe la nécessité de mieux protéger les écosystèmesSelon un rapport de l’ONU, pour assurer la sécurité alimentaire d’une population mondiale de neuf milliards d’habitants, attendue d’ici à 2050, il faudra deux fois plus d’eau qu’aujourd’hui si on ne s’oriente pas maintenant vers des écosystèmes sains et bien gérés.La planète épuise progressivement ses ressources en eau. Là où se concentrent les zones de forte production agroalimentaire, comme les plaines du nord de la Chine, le Pendjab en Inde ou le Grand Ouest américain par exemple, les limites sont atteintes. Le réchauffement climatique se rajoute à cela et menace d’accentuer les problèmes de sécheresse et d’inondations. Ces deux catastrophes menacent, à elles seules, d’aboutir à une réduction de la production agricole de 15 à 30% d’ici à 2100.Ainsi, selon un rapport de l’ONU, pour assurer la sécurité alimentaire de la population mondiale qui attendra bientôt neuf milliards d’habitants, les ressources en eau devront être deux fois supérieures à leur niveau actuel. “Actuellement, 1,6 milliard de personnes vivent dans des zones déjà en proie à une pénurie d’eau et on pourrait rapidement arriver à deux milliards si rien ne change”, souligne ce rapport rédigé par l’agence onusienne pour l’Environnement (PNUE) en collaboration avec l’Institut international de gestion de l’Eau (IWMI) et publié lundi.”Si l’on maintient les mêmes pratiques agricoles” et “les régimes alimentaires actuels”,si “l’urbanisation croissante” se poursuit, “la quantité d’eau nécessaire à l’agriculture [ … ] qui est de 7.130 kilomètres cubes aujourd’hui, augmentera de 70 à 90% pour nourrir neuf milliards de personnes d’ici à 2050”, avertit le document paru à l’ouverture de la Semaine mondiale de l’Eau qui se tient à Stockholm.Augmenter la productivité en préservant les ressourcesÀ lire aussiRétention d’eau : symptômes, remèdes, causes, que faire en cas d’oedème ?Pour résoudre cet épineux problème, le PNUE préconise un changement d’approche. “Il faut passer de systèmes de production alimentaire à des “agroécosystèmes” qui offrent une plus grande variété de services”, indique le rapport. La mise en place de politiques communes entre environnement et agriculture devrait permettre d’augmenter la productivité agricole tout en préservant les ressources naturelles comme l’eau et de protéger les différents écosystèmes.Concrètement, le rapport propose entre autres, une meilleure adaptation des cultures aux nouvelles conditions climatiques, l’amélioration des techniques d’irrigation, la préservation des zones humides et la création de petits bassins de rétention dans les pays chauds pour aider les petits producteurs agricoles à surmonter les périodes d’absence de précipitations, rapporte TV5monde.Des arbres et une meilleure coordination Parallèlement, planter des arbres permettra de lutter contre les gaz à effets de serre mais également de favoriser l’alimentation des nappes d’eau souterraines et de lutter contre l’assèchement des sols. Autres recommandations avancées par le rapport, le développement de synergies entre agriculture, élevage, pêche et horticulture afin d’éviter de compromettre les ressources en eau. Enfin dernier point, favoriser une meilleure coordination entre gouvernements, agriculteurs, populations locales et experts devrait permettre d’établir un équilibre entre les besoins de l’économie et ceux de l’environnement, sans oublier l’amélioration du sort des populations pauvres.Le 23 août 2011 à 18:39 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Impossible Burger 20 tastes like beef Really

first_img Comments Talk about a spread: meat skewers with a green chimichurri sauce fanned out on a platter. A plate of spicy Thai-style larb laced with ginger and peanuts served in lettuce bowls. And, of course, burgers. “You can smell that meaty char right off the grill,” said Laura Kliman, a senior flavor scientist and cook for the day at Impossible Foods’ Silicon Valley test kitchen. “We are striving to get that total meat experience.”Impossible Foods is known for its plant-based vegan burger that tastes a lot like real beef. Founded in 2011, the company was first to use an ingredient called heme, a blood-like compound found in all living things and that can replicate the taste, color and aroma of meat. Its Impossible Burger is now sold in more than 5,000 restaurants and chains across the US, including Momofuku Nishi, Umami Burger, Burger King and White Castle. Impossible Foods has been working on 2.0 over the last year. Along with trying to improve the beefiness of the product, the company has also lowered cholesterol, fat and calories. A 4-ounce burger is now about 240 calories — versus roughly 290 calories in the first version, which is about the same as a beef burger. The new version is also gluten-free.The company is additionally researching other products, like chicken, pork and fish. But for now, its main focus is beef. The next major product will likely be steak, Brown said, which will be a challenge. But he appears to be up to it.”Everything we’re doing is a huge challenge,” he said. CES 2019: Every story so far: See all of CNET’s coverage of the year’s biggest tech show.Special Reports: All of CNET’s most in-depth features in one easy spot. But the burger I tried at the test kitchen a couple of weeks ago was wholly different. It had a juicy pink interior with a smoky charred crust. And the faux meat was soft and savory. Impossible Burger 2.0 is a tinkering of and improvement on the first version. If the current burger tastes like an OK Sizzler steak, then this new version is a well-massaged Kobe ribeye.I couldn’t tell it wasn’t the real thing.Related: Is vegan cheese as good as the real thing? | There’s a new meatless burger on the market — find it at Whole Foods. “Unlike the cow, we get better at making meat every single day,” said Impossible Foods CEO Pat Brown, who previously taught biochemistry at Stanford University. “We have figured out an entirely new approach to making meat that gives us the ability to deliberately control and make improvements in flavor, texture, juiciness, appearance, cooking properties, shelf life, handling, cost of production, nutrition — you name it.”Impossible Foods quietly launched this new gluten-free 2.0 burger on Monday, right in the middle of CES in Las Vegas. It will officially replace the older version on Tuesday. First it’ll be available in about a dozen high-end restaurants across the US, and then roll out to all Impossible Foods partner restaurants in early February. The company plans to sell a raw version of the “ground beef” in grocery stores by the end of the year. The cost will be about the same as USDA premium ground beef, Brown said.Impossible Foods isn’t the only startup hawking meat and dairy products made from vegetables. Beyond Meat sells everything from plant protein “beef crumbles” to chicken strips, and New Wave Foods makes little fried shrimp out of plant-based protein and algae. Data from Nielsen and the Plant-Based Foods Association shows that sales of plant-based meats rose 24 percent in 2018, whereas sales of animal meats only grew by 2 percent in the same period. Unlike the cow, we get better at making meat every single day. Pat Brown, CEO of Impossible Foods Meet Impossible Foods’ lab-grown veggie burger. It bleeds Ranchers ask ‘Where’s the beef?’ in lab-grown meat Lab-grown food: It’s what’s for dinner! The goal for Impossible Foods is to lessen the environmental impact of beef production on the planet. That’s because cattle farming is resource hungry. Livestock factory farming uses 30 percent of the Earth’s land surface and contributes to more than 18 percent of global greenhouse gases, according to the United Nations. But Impossible Foods can produce a burger using a fourth of the water and less than 4 percent of the land — and emit one-tenth of the greenhouse gases — than a conventional burger, Brown said.”The whole mission of the company is to completely replace the use of animals as a food technology globally, by 2035,” he said. “And that is unequivocally the most important mission in the world, full stop.”Why 2.0?To achieve its mission, Impossible Foods needs to persuade burger lovers to stop eating meat. Dried-out black bean, quinoa, oat burgers won’t do. Its burgers have to taste, smell and feel like meat.By most accounts Impossible Burger 1.0 has been a success, but it does have a few issues. Its texture is a bit off — more crumbly and drier than a traditional hamburger. And it can only be cooked on a restaurant-style flattop grill. “It would totally fall apart,” if you tried to throw it on a barbecue, Kliman said. “It would stick to the grill and just disintegrate.”Impossible Burger 2.0 was designed to be cooked on barbecue grills. Mariel Myers/CNET The same is true for cooking the faux meat in any dish other than a burger. Version 2.0 is more versatile and can substitute for ground beef in any recipe, Kliman said. Hence the spread of dishes she laid out for me to taste at the company’s lab.Not only can people use it for cooking Thai larb and beef skewers, it can be used in chili, dumplings, tacos, frittatas, meatloaf and sloppy Joes.”Anything you can possibly think of, you can do,” Kliman said. “You can cook it hot for a nice sear or low and slow.” CES 2019 4:46 Now playing: Watch this: Share your voice 99+ Lab grown meat Tags The Impossible Burger gets a beefy upgrade at CES 2019 Culturelast_img read more

Derrick Hall satisfied with Dbacks buying and se

first_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Comments   Share   Head coach Bruce Arians hadn’t had to worry about a long snapper since arriving in 2013; and the Cardinals hadn’t for four years prior to Arians being named coach.That all changed when Mike Leach announced his retirement on Jan. 27, ending a 16-year career, including the last seven with the Cardinals.Leach, 39, never missed a game with the Cardinals. More importantly, he hardly ever had a bad snap.“The biggest thing is with a guy like Mike you can’t replace him because of the leadership but just the dependability and the thing that he did so much is he really was a great influence on (punter) Drew Butler and (kicker) Chandler Catanzaro. He was almost like a father-figure to them,” special teams coordinator Amos Jones said. “Hate like heck we got to replace him but wish him nothing but the best.”The Cardinals will miss Leach’s reliability. They hope, though, to find his replacement, possibly with either Canaday or Dillon.Both were their school’s long snapper for four seasons.Canaday, 6-foot-4 and 245-pounds, played in 41 games at Portland State and was named an FCS third team All-American following his senior season.Dillon, 6-foot-3 and 235-pounds, saw action in 43 career games at Campbell University, where he was honorable mention All-Pioneer League in 2015 and four times selected to the conference’s academic honor roll. Kameron Canaday Top Stories center_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “These two, specifically, were kids that we identified in the scouting process. Worked them out, went back and worked them out again. Just felt like they fit our criteria of a guy that can snap, protect and has some coverage ability,” Jones said.“We were very fortunate. Other teams probably wanted them, but we were fortunate they realized that there was a heck of an opportunity here.”Long snapper is one of just a handful of starting jobs believed to be open with the Cardinals.“They were extremely accurate,” Arians said of Canaday and Dillon. “Amos has had the pulse of these guys for awhile. They were the two guys we targeted, and they’re just going to fight it out.”Arians couldn’t recall either having a missed snap during Friday’s 80-minute on-field session.The real test, however, comes later.“Once you put the pads on and get under the lights—because they’re both from smaller schools—and all of a sudden there’s 80,000 out there, we got to see (how they perform), that’s what we got to see,” Arians said. – / 28 TEMPE, Ariz. – Typically, the position goes unnoticed.In fact, that’s part of the job description and, really, how success is measured.An exception to the above is being made this weekend.The Arizona Cardinals are putting the spotlight, so to speak, on long snappers.Portland State’s Kameron Canaday and Campbell University’s Daniel Dillon were among 16 rookie free agents signed for minicamp, which began Friday.
