  • 47/82   Donald Trump accused of sexual assault by former model
    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    A former model has accused Donald Trump of sexual assault in an encounter that left her feeling “sick” and “violated” more than two decades ago. Amy Dorris alleges that the US president accosted her during the US Open tournament in New York on 5 September 1997. Ms Dorris, who was 24 at the time, told the Guardian that Mr Trump assaulted her all over her body and forced his tongue down her throat, a claim he denies. “He just shoved his tongue down my throat and I was pushing him off. And then that’s when his grip became tighter and his hands were very gropey and all over my butt, my breasts, my back, everything,” she said Ms Dorris, who is now 48, claims she was unable to escape his grip, despite telling Mr Trump “no, please stop”. “I just kind of was in shock,” she told the Guardian. “I felt violated, obviously. But I still wasn’t processing it and just was trying to go back to talking to everyone and having a good time because, I don’t know, I felt pressured to be that way.”

  • 58/82   Hurricane Sally's Fierce Rain Shows How Climate Change Raises Storm Risks
    SCIENCE TOPIC NEWS

    As hurricanes go, Sally was not especially powerful. Rated a Category 2 storm when it struck the Gulf Coast on Wednesday, it was soon downgraded. But climate change likely made it more dangerous by slowing it down and feeding it more moisture, setting it up to pummel the region with wind and catastrophic rainfall.Sally was crawling at about 3 mph when its eye made landfall early Wednesday near Gulf Shores, Alabama, and was "inching its way inland" later in the day, the National Hurricane Center said. The slow movement, or stalling, of the storm led to staggering rain totals, with more than two feet in some areas by midmorning Wednesday and widespread flooding."When a storm moves slower, it lingers longer over the same location," said Kimberly Wood, a geoscientist at Mississippi State University. "A rain rate of, say, an inch an hour -- that's not so bad if the rain only lasts 30 minutes. But if it lasts for half a day, that adds up quickly."Sally was not an isolated example of a stalling hurricane. "There is increasing evidence that storms are slowing down," Wood said.That evidence comes in part from a 2018 study that showed that hurricanes near the Gulf and Atlantic coasts were increasingly likely to stall. The study also found a clear signal of more local rainfall, said one of the authors, James P. Kossin, a researcher with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. "And it was associated with increasing frequency of stalled systems," he said.Climate change has also led to wetter storms, Wood said, because warmer air holds more moisture. Between the slowing speeds and increasing moisture, with storms like Sally "there's a combination effect," she said.Researchers increasingly see a link between stalling of hurricanes and climate change. Rapid warming in the Arctic has reduced the difference in temperature between that region and the tropics, leading to a weakening and slowing of the jet stream and related winds that drive hurricanes' forward movement.Hurricanes also sometimes meander, Kossin said. Hurricane Harvey, which inundated Houston in 2017, moved back and forth over the area, increasing the deluge. Sally was heading due west, parallel to the coast, on Monday when it made a sudden right-angle turn to the north early Tuesday.Such movements may also be linked to slowing atmospheric circulation, Kossin said. "You won't really get meandering until you get a slow storm," he said. "They don't go zipping around like go-karts."While Sally's winds were not as intense as the strongest hurricanes -- maximum sustained speeds early Wednesday were about 105 mph, about half the speed of a Category 5 storm's -- by lingering for longer, the storm may also have increased storm surge, the wind-driven buildup of water that can quickly flood coastal areas, often with devastating results.But storm surge can be influenced by many other factors, including the timing of tides and the shallowness of a bay or another body of water. In this case, Sally's slow speed "contributed more to the extreme rainfall flooding than to the surge flooding," said Rick Luettich, a professor at the University of North Carolina and a principal developer of the leading surge model used by forecasters.Luettich said the storm's surge was close to projections of about five feet. But another characteristic of some hurricanes that is linked to warmer oceans, the rapid strengthening of a storm before landfall, "gave the water a bigger push" than earlier forecasts called for, he said.Hurricanes are not the only kind of storms affected by climate change, and not the only kind that can bring catastrophic flooding to the Gulf Coast or other regions. Record rain from a low-pressure system in August 2016, a large storm but one that did not rotate like a hurricane, led to floods in Baton Rouge. A gauge east of the city received 26.5 inches of rain in three days.That storm prompted an attribution study, research that tries to determine the extent, if any, of climate change's influence on an extreme weather event. It found that climate change had increased the likelihood of such a storm along the Gulf Coast in any given year by 40% since 1900. In the current climate, there is a 3% chance in any given year of a similar storm."The risk of extreme precipitation events in this region has gone up," said Sarah Kapnick, a researcher at NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Princeton, New Jersey, who worked on the study."There's a basic theoretical understanding underlying all of this," Kapnick said. With warming "you get more water vapor in the sky.""So when you get these storms, be they hurricanes or summer storms, they have the potential to hold more water in them," she added. "And that water has to go somewhere."This article originally appeared in The New York Times.(C) 2020 The New York Times Company

    As hurricanes go, Sally was not especially powerful. Rated a Category 2 storm when it struck the Gulf Coast on Wednesday, it was soon downgraded. But climate change likely made it more dangerous by slowing it down and feeding it more moisture, setting it up to pummel the region with wind and catastrophic rainfall.Sally was crawling at about 3 mph when its eye made landfall early Wednesday near Gulf Shores, Alabama, and was "inching its way inland" later in the day, the National Hurricane Center said. The slow movement, or stalling, of the storm led to staggering rain totals, with more than two feet in some areas by midmorning Wednesday and widespread flooding."When a storm moves slower, it lingers longer over the same location," said Kimberly Wood, a geoscientist at Mississippi State University. "A rain rate of, say, an inch an hour -- that's not so bad if the rain only lasts 30 minutes. But if it lasts for half a day, that adds up quickly."Sally was not an isolated example of a stalling hurricane. "There is increasing evidence that storms are slowing down," Wood said.That evidence comes in part from a 2018 study that showed that hurricanes near the Gulf and Atlantic coasts were increasingly likely to stall. The study also found a clear signal of more local rainfall, said one of the authors, James P. Kossin, a researcher with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. "And it was associated with increasing frequency of stalled systems," he said.Climate change has also led to wetter storms, Wood said, because warmer air holds more moisture. Between the slowing speeds and increasing moisture, with storms like Sally "there's a combination effect," she said.Researchers increasingly see a link between stalling of hurricanes and climate change. Rapid warming in the Arctic has reduced the difference in temperature between that region and the tropics, leading to a weakening and slowing of the jet stream and related winds that drive hurricanes' forward movement.Hurricanes also sometimes meander, Kossin said. Hurricane Harvey, which inundated Houston in 2017, moved back and forth over the area, increasing the deluge. Sally was heading due west, parallel to the coast, on Monday when it made a sudden right-angle turn to the north early Tuesday.Such movements may also be linked to slowing atmospheric circulation, Kossin said. "You won't really get meandering until you get a slow storm," he said. "They don't go zipping around like go-karts."While Sally's winds were not as intense as the strongest hurricanes -- maximum sustained speeds early Wednesday were about 105 mph, about half the speed of a Category 5 storm's -- by lingering for longer, the storm may also have increased storm surge, the wind-driven buildup of water that can quickly flood coastal areas, often with devastating results.But storm surge can be influenced by many other factors, including the timing of tides and the shallowness of a bay or another body of water.

    LONDON—Lawyers representing the United States at Julian Assange’s extradition trial in Britain have accepted the claim that the WikiLeaks founder was offered a presidential pardon on the condition that he would help cover up Russia’s involvement in hacking emails from the Democratic National Committee.Jennifer Robinson, a lawyer, told the court that she had attended a meeting between Assange, Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher and pro-Trump troll Charles Johnson at the Ecuadorian embassy in London on August 15 2017.She said the two Americans said they were emissaries from Washington and “wanted us to believe they were acting on behalf of the president.”They said they could help grant Assange a pardon in exchange for him revealing information about the source of the WikiLeaks information that showed it was not the Russians who hacked Democratic emails. “They stated that President Trump was aware of and had approved of them coming to meet with Mr Assange to discuss a proposal—and that they would have an audience with the president to discuss the matter on their return to Washington, D.C.,” she said.The White House has denied that Trump took part in any such plan. The claim itself is not new—Assange’s lawyers alleged in February that former Republican congressman Dana Rohrabacher offered Assange the deal in 2017, a year after emails that damaged Hillary Clinton in the presidential race had been published. WikiLeaks posted the stolen DNC emails after they were hacked by Russian operatives.However, when Assange’s lawyers repeated the claim in a London courtroom on Friday, lawyers representing the U.S. accepted the witness statement as accurate and confirmed they had no intention of cross-examining the claim. They did dispute, however, that President Donald Trump gave his blessing for the pardon offer.James Lewis QC, for the U.S. government, said: “The position of the government is we don't contest these things were said. We obviously do not accept the truth of what was said by others.”Rohrabacher, who was known as Putin’s favorite congressman, corroborated Assange’s claim back in February, saying at the time: “I spoke to Julian Assange and told him if he would provide evidence about who gave WikiLeaks the emails I would petition the president to give him a pardon... He knew I could get to the president.”Rohrabacher said he followed up the meeting by calling then White House chief of staff John Kelly to discuss the pardon.

Global Medical Gowns Market Segmentation The global medical gowns market research report includes a detailed segmentation by product type, power source, application, and geography. In terms of volume, the surgical gown segment is likely to reach over five billion units by 2025. The growth can be attributed to several factors, including the high number of orthopedic, laparoscopic, bariatric, gynecological, and gastrointestinal (GI) surgeries, the increasing geriatric population, the rising popularity of minimally invasive surgeries, and technological advancements for surgical procedures. In 2019, based on volume, the patient gowns segment accounted for over 38% of the global medical gowns market. The use of patient robes facilitates the identification process in the healthcare facility, which contributes to objectification with a focus on disease and symptoms. Also, they offer immense comfort and protection during medical examinations or surgical procedures to the patient. Enhancements in materials, which include disposable multilayer patient gowns are fluid-resistant, comfortable, and breathable with soft, fabric-like material that requires no maintenance, are expected to contribute to the market growth. In 2019, the moderate risk segment captured over 43% volume share. These gowns are intended for procedures such as arterial blood drawing. Therefore, with the significant burden of diseases and HAIs while treating such diseases need effective management with dedicated PPE such as moderate risk level medical gowns. Moreover, the exposure to pathogenic microorganisms harbored in the blood, body fluids, and other potentially infectious materials (OPIM) that lead to occupationally acquired infections (OAIs) is driving HCPs to don adequate PPE with moderate risk level medical gowns to protect themselves in-patient care and surgical surroundings. In 2019, the disposable segment by volume accounted for over 78% share of the global medical gowns market. Disposable medical gowns are widely preferred in the healthcare industry. The segment is expected to grow as the material is high on comfort, safety, barrier performance, and reliability. Also, they offer antibacterial assurance and environmental safety. Such barrier effectiveness while providing quality patient care is a key factor for the high uptake of disposable ones.

    WORLD TOPIC NEWS

    An improvised explosive device blew up outside an English-language institute in southern Iraq early Friday without causing any casualties, Iraqi police said in a statement, amid a recent uptick in attacks targeting the American presence in Iraq.  The school is not formally affiliated with any institutions in the U.S. It was believed to to have been targeted because it offered English-language lessons to Iraqis.  Rocket attacks routinely target the heavily fortified Green Zone, the seat of the Iraqi government, where the U.S. Embassy is located.

  • 69/82   AP Interview: South Africa to know true virus toll in weeks
    WORLD TOPIC NEWS

    South Africa should know its true toll from the coronavirus pandemic within a few weeks, the government’s chief medical adviser says, as the country prepares to almost fully reopen its economy after bringing the first surge in cases under control.  The official death toll from COVID-19 is more than 15,700 but the real number is likely more than 30,000 when deaths not recorded at hospitals are taken into account, Salim Abdool Karim, epidemiologist and chairman of the government’s COVID-19 advisory committee, told The Associated Press in an interview.  Similar surveys are beginning in other countries across Africa, which has seen far fewer confirmed cases and deaths in the pandemic than health experts once feared.

  • 71/82   Virus clusters at French universities give Europe a lesson
    WORLD TOPIC NEWS

    The clutches of cases are a warning sign for countries elsewhere in Europe, where most universities are readying to resume teaching and research in coming weeks.  “We go back to university in conditions that are a bit extreme, and we fear we might get COVID-19,” Elise Gilbert, 20, who is studying literature at the Sorbonne, said of the overcrowding students encountered.  France's experience so far stands in contrast to what's happening in Britain, where virus-driven changes on campuses mean university life will look a lot different this term.

    Israel went back into a full lockdown on Friday to try to contain a coronavirus outbreak that has steadily worsened for months as its government has been plagued by indecision and infighting.
