11/08/2017 4 mines endangering workers with possible black lung disease by not monitoring their coal dust levels.
Views: 121 Qldaah
big mining companies, like Rio Tinto, are cutting corners when it comes to the closing down of their hazardous mines. As a result of this, Queensland now has some 15,300 registered abandoned mines, sitting there. Which will now be the Queensland taxpayers responsibility to clean up, due to coal and mining companies finding ways to avoid and delay their land rehabilitation responsibilities.

Come along for the roller coaster ride with Charles I (he was also Charles V), Philip II, Atahualpa, Moctezuma, Hernán Cortés, and Francisco Pizarro as Spain rises and falls, and takes two empires and China down with them.

In South Africa - nearly a-thousand workers were stuck in a gold mine after the power went out. A storm knocked out power Wednesday night. Union leaders say the incident demonstrates the continuing safety problems in South Africa's mines. They're calling for a thorough safety audit before heading back to work. CGTN's Angelo Coppola has details. Sibanye Stillwater, owners of the mine confirmed that all the miners are healthy and recuperating after their ordeal. The company will also shortly begin trauma counseling.

We know the anacondas, boas, pythons, but have you heard about the Titanoboa? It is the queen of snakes and is also the largest ever known. Correction: The titanoboa weighed 1.13 tons. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- DESCRIPTION: Its scientific name is Titanoboa Cerrejonensis, because it was discovered in the Cerrejón coal mines, located in the State of La Guajira, in Colombia. In this place, the geologist Henry Garcia found a strange fossil in 1994. He labeled it a "petrified branch" and stored it in a counter in the mine's facilities. The discovery was not free of challenges. To know what the titanoboa was feeding on and what its true size was, the head was needed. Until then, mining activity had helped the discovery of new species. While more layers of land miners extracted, more species were found and they seemed to be increasingly older. The problem was that this time the miners had announced that they were going to start digging in lower strata and that all the land from the time of the titanoboa would be removed, losing any trace of it. The paleontologists had to hurry. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- About Us: Trend Max is an education and entertainment channel dedicated to creating interesting Tops and Lists.

Check out these dangerous places you should never swim! From dangerous beaches with sharks lurking underwater to other popular tourist destinations, this top 10 list of scariest places to swim in the world should definitely be avoided! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "Most DANGEROUS Beaches In The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/LW-PrAyESq4 Watch our "STRANGEST Things Found In The Ocean!" video here: https://youtu.be/0eRi-vbA2y4 Watch our "Most Amazing Cities Found UNDERWATER!" video here: https://youtu.be/rUqxhYJqGhU 8. Berkeley Pit If you’re in Butte, Montana and have 2 dollars to spend, then you might want to consider visiting Berkeley Pit. It is one of the only places in the world where you can pay to see toxic waste. It’s pretty easy, just pay the $2 admission fee and enter the viewing platform. The Berkeley Pit is a former open pit copper mine that is filled with highly acidic water. There are metals and toxic chemicals that seep out of the rocks, including copper, iron, arsenic, cadmium, zinc and sulfuric acid! Of course, you don’t need me to tell you what would happen if you went for a swim there. The pit was closed in 1982, the groundwater slowly filled the pit and now, it is a serious environmental problem. In 1995 a flock of geese landed in the water and over 342 dead geese were recovered. But the place is not really lifeless. New fungal and bacterial species have been found to have adapted to the extremely harsh conditions inside the pit. An even more interesting discovery was that these species developed a better production of highly toxic compounds to improve their chances for survival. Some of these might be useful against cancer! However, there are other things about the Berkeley Pit the State of Montana should be concerned about. The water level in the pit is constantly rising. This is a very big problem because if the water level reaches the critical point it will contaminate the nearby ground water of the entire Butte valley which is home to more than 30,000 people! A water treatment plant was built in 2003 to help avoid this catastrophe and hopefully this year, 2018, the facility will be able to treat and divert the deadly water. 7. The Drake Passage Back in the day, if you wanted to travel from the west coast of America to the east coast, you had to travel south and pass through what is known as the Drake Passage. This is where the Atlantic, Pacific, and Southern seas converge, and it is the fastest way to get to Antarctica. The Drake Passage is almost 1000 km wide and the current creates some extremely choppy water. Combine that with unpredictable weather and you can either have the smoothest water ever or an extremely violent journey. Aside from the harsh weather, the Drake Passage is also known for its cold and deep waters. The waters are actually among the coldest on earth! And its average depth is of about 11,000 feet! Extremely large cargo ships that cannot go through the Panama Canal, are forced to go the long way around the Americas and go through the Drake Passage. Before the Panama Canal, the safest, most trafficked route to reach LA or San Francisco from New York was to go down to Cape Horne and around the west coast. It would take about 90 days. There are many cruises that you can take to Antarctica and despite the rough crossing, many people say its worth it for the spectacular landscape and wildlife that you can see including dolphins, whales, and many kinds of birds. It is apparently quite the adventure! Just make sure to take your motion sickness pill!! And whatever you do, don’t fall into the water!! 6. Saco River Saco River is a popular recreational river and many people come here to visit every year hoping to cool off and have some fun. Located between New Hampshire and Maine, it is 220 km long. It passes through several counties and towns before emptying into the Atlantic Ocean at Saco Bay. You can camp near the river, rent a canoe, go tubing, or simply enjoy its beauty along the shore. It really sounds like a very nice place to spend your free time. If you ask the right person, that is. There is a reason Saco River is on the list, after all! There is a local legend that the river is cursed. The story goes that in 1675, three drunken English sailors encountered a woman from the Sokokis tribe with her child. They made a bet about a European myth that stated that an Indian baby can swim upon birth as animals do. They attacked the woman, took her child and threw it in the lake where it drowned. The woman’s husband, Squandro, the chief of the Sokokis tribe, cursed the river “to claim three lives every year until all white men fled its banks!” Origins Explained is the place to be to find all the answers to your questions, from mysterious events and unsolved mysteries to everything there is to know about the world and its amazing animals!

This is the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish In early July, an oil pipeline broke under the Yellowstone River in the western state of Montana. The Yellowstone is America's longest undammed river. The spill happened downstream from Yellowstone National Park. The burst pipe spilled as much as one thousand barrels of crude oil -- more than one hundred sixty thousand liters -- into the river. Workers shut off the Exxon Mobil pipeline, and the company continued to clean up the spill. But the river was at flood levels and flowing quickly, carrying oil downstream into wetlands, fields and yards. Exxon Mobil spokeswoman Claire Hassett said local officials had ordered a temporary shutdown of the pipeline in May to check on its condition. They were concerned with heavy rains and rising waters. But, she said, "we determined that it was safe to operate and ... we don't know what has caused this leak."Susan Casey-Lefkowitz is with the Natural Resources Defense Council, an environmental group. She says the spill shows the dangers of mixing pipelines and waterways, "especially when they are running under some of our most precious river systems that are important not just for wildlife, but also for our communities. The Yellowstone River is critical for irrigation, for example, and so it serves the needs of a lot of farmers and communities along its path."Andy Black heads the Association of Oil Pipe Lines, an industry group whose members include pipeline owners and operators. He says, "We have processes both within companies and at the associations to share learning and best practices and pursue the goal which is zero accidents."Mr. Black says the industry does not need more federal and state rules. "The regulations cover the major causes of pipeline failures, and we do not see any gaps." Susan Casey-Lefkowitz disagrees. One concern, she says, is the future of the Ogallala aquifer, a major source of water for America's central plains. A proposed pipeline called Keystone XL would cross the Ogallala to carry oil produced from tar sands in Canada for processing in Texas. Ms. Casey-Lefkowitz says, "Ironically it would actually cross the Yellowstone River where the spill just happened." For VOA Special English, I'm Mario Ritter.

PAUL ROBINSON (USA) Research director, Southwest Research and Information Centre THE SYMPOSIUM The World Uranium Symposium addressed issues arising from the nuclear fuel chain, from mining uranium to its end-uses and byproducts for civilian or military purposes. Both scientific and community-based, the Symposium was organized around the following themes: health, environment, economy, ethics, governance, human rights and the rights of indigenous peoples. Open to the public, the symposium had hosted more than 300 people per day from 14 to 16 April 2015, and had included local, national and international representatives from the sectors of health, research, industry, education, civil society, policy makers and indigenous communities. local, national and/or international media were present. All presentations of the symposium will be posted in electronic formats (text and / or videos) after the Symposium, in French and / or English. • April 14 (Day 1): Uranium mines and the nuclear life cycle : health and environmental issues • April 15 (Day 2): Civil and military nuclear : ethics, economics and political issues • April 16 (Day 3): Human rights, indigenous peoples' rights and governance issues ORGANIZATIONS INVOLVED The Symposium is jointly organized by Physicians for Global Survival (1985 Nobel Peace Prize), the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, Nature Québec, the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility and the Coalition pour que le Québec ait meilleure mine. It also receives support from the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (Swiss chapter), the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador Sustainable Development Institute, the Cree Nation of Mistissini, MiningWatch Canada, and a number of other local, national and international partners. CONTEXT The Symposium is occurring at a time when many organizations and governments question the future of nuclear power, currently providing about 11% of the world’s electricity. The year 2015 also marks the seventieth anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the corresponding United Nations negotiations of the Non Proliferation Treaty for the prevention and the abolition of nuclear arms. It will also see the tabling on a new UN treaty on climate change. Canada is one of the largest producers and exporters of uranium worldwide, yet its nuclear energy output is in relative decline. Only two provinces still operate nuclear reactors: Ontario and New Brunswick. While uranium has been primarily mined from Saskatchewan, the provinces of British Columbia and Nova Scotia have officially banned uranium mining. Quebec recently shut down its sole nuclear reactor and has tasked the Bureau d’audiences publiques sur l’environnement (BAPE) with conducting an investigation on issues related to uranium mining. It is expected to release its report by May 20 2015. The Symposium aims to tackle these different issues and to provide recommendations to decision makers to better ensure protection for the human health, global security and a safe environment

It’s an 1980s pop music cliche that dates back to 1910. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO If you listen to the first few seconds of Bruno Mars’ “Finesse” (hint: listen to the Cardi B remix) you’ll hear a sound that immediately creates a sense of 80s hip-hop nostalgia. Yes, Cardi B’s flow is very Roxanne Shante, but the sound that drives that nostalgia home isn’t actually from the 1980s. Robert Fink and the inventor of the Fairlight CMI, Peter Vogel, help me tell the story of the orchestra hit - a sound that was first heard in 1910 at the Paris Opera where the famed 20th century Russian composer Stravinsky debuted his first hit, The Firebird. The video above is, in short, a history of the original orchestra hit sample from The Firebird Suite to the 1982 hit “Planet Rock” to “Finesse.” And as a treat, here’s a playlist of way more songs with orchestra hits than you probably wanted.

(7 Nov 2018) RESTRICTION SUMMARY: AP CLIENTS ONLY ASSOCIATED PRESS - AP CLIENTS ONLY Great Falls, Montana - 7 November 2018 1. Sen. Jon Tester enters a room to announce that he's claiming victory in the Montana US Senate race 2. SOUNDBITE: (English) Sen. Jon Tester, (D) Montana: "I want to congratulate Matt Rosendale on a hard fought race. This was a tough race. It was a race that broke records both. I believe when it's all said and the number of people who voted in our great state and the amount of money that was spent, an unprecedented amount of money was spent in this race. It was a race that saw the president the United States come here four times. It was a race that saw his son come here probably that many times. The Vice president came here three times. But I want to say that Montanans spoke loud and clear about the direction they want Montana to go and the direction of our state" ASSOCIATED PRESS - AP CLIENTS ONLY Great Falls, Montana - 7 November 2018 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Sen. Jon Tester, (D) Montana: "And quite frankly I hope the president comes back many times. I do. But not not for political rallies. In all seriousness, not for political rallies but to see the challenges we have in our state" POOL - AP CLIENTS ONLY Great Falls, Montana - 5 July 2018 5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Donald Trump, president, United States of America: "Jon Tester showed his true colors with his shameful, dishonest attacks on a great man, a friend of mine, a man that I said why don't you run the VA, you'd be great. Navy Admiral Ronnie Jackson." ASSOCIATED PRESS - AP CLIENTS ONLY Washington, 16 January 2018 6. SOUNDBITE: (English) Adm. Ronny Jackson, physician, White House: "The president's overall health is excellent. His cardiac performance during his physical exam was very good. He continues to enjoy the significant long term cardiac and overall health benefits that come from a lifetime of abstinence from tobacco and alcohol." ASSOCIATED PRESS - AP CLIENTS ONLY Great Falls, Montana - 7 November 2018 7. SOUNDBITE (English) Sen. Jon Tester, (D) Montana: "We've got an opportunity over the next six years, in my case, and over the next two years for sure to do some really good work. I mentioned the issues whether it's public lands or health care. Veterans' care. Making sure that we have government accountability and a transparent government in reducing the amount of money that goes into these races. I mean it's crazy. These are bipartisan issues. Let's get her done. Ultimately I just want to say this. Thank you. And every one of you, you should be sleeping. But you're not. And I just want to say, Thank you. God bless you and God bless American." STORYLINE: Montana Democrat Jon Tester has won a third Senate term, beating Republican Matt Rosendale, the state auditor. President Donald Trump had taken a personal interest in defeating Tester, and had visited the state to campaign against the incumbent. Trump had said he wanted to make Tester pay at the polls for helping derail a Trump nominee to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs. Tester is the top Democrat on the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee. Tester insisted that Montana voters across the political spectrum would support him after examining his record. Trump held four rallies in Montana and sent his eldest son and Vice President Mike Pence to headline more appearances. Rosendale also got help from outside cash that poured into the race. =========================================================== Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP_Archive Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/APArchives Google+: https://plus.google.com/b/102011028589719587178/+APArchive Tumblr: https://aparchives.tumblr.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/APNews/ You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/18d0986e9682d70918598abdeafccc53

Two paths have emerged in the current mining legislative landscape. The first path would open up opportunities for mining, allow the United States to increase domestic production, create more jobs and enhance our national and economic security. The second path leads to higher taxes and product costs, jeopardizing jobs. At the core of this negative path is a proposed $1.8 billion tax on the moving of dirt for the mining industry. This tax will exacerbate the domestic jobs problem and push even more industries overseas. If mining taxes were raised, American businesses would be forced to get more materials overseas that we could be mining domestically—this increases our dependence on other countries. Minerals are among the most important components in the technologies protecting our nation. Foreign reliance leaves us in a vulnerable position. Washington has a choice to make. You can help. You can tell your legislators that the right choice involves an increased use of domestic minerals to help U.S. economic growth and national security.

In order to save her life, the doctors had to amputate part of her left leg. In light of this event, Arunima became inspired by Yuvarj Singh, an international cricket player who successfully won his battle with cancer. As such, she was determined to climb Mount Everest. In 2013, Arunima became the first female amputee (and the first Indian amputee) to make the climb. Arunima then went on to be the first female amputee to climb Mt. Kilamanjaro in Africa and Mt. Elbrus in Europe. She has been honoured with numerous awards and recognitions. Currently she is busy planning to open a sports academy for underprivileged and physically disabled children.

TechKnow visits the city of Chattanooga, Tennessee, to explore how the city came to have the fastest Internet in the country. The municipal power company, the Electric Power Board (EPB) set up "The Gig" fibre optic network in 2010 to enable a smart electricity grid, which also brought ultra high-speed Internet to Chattanooga's citizens. But to get this fibre-optic service, Chattanooga had to go up against Comcast, the country's largest cable company, and the state cable association, which sued the EPB twice to try and stop them from going ahead with "The Gig". State senator Janice Bowling is fighting a legislative battle to bring high-speed Internet to the rest of the state. It's a fight that has pitted her against the "legacy providers" through lobbyists representing, for instance, Comcast. The city has reinvented itself into a tech hub, with start-ups such as 3D OPS which makes 3-D printed models of organs from medical scans like MRIs to allow surgeons to practice procedures, and has attracted businesses like Amazon and Volkswagen. But beyond the city limits, and the 72,000 homes and businesses benefitting from "The Gig", it's a different story. A few miles from 1-gig speed Internet in Chattanooga we meet the Van Hook family who only have access to painfully slow satellite Internet. No cable provider will provide service to their street. And while the EPB wants to provide them with service and don't mind laying the cable, state law prevents them from doing so. The Van Hooks are lobbying against this. Others who are similarly outside EPB's area of service have started grassroots fights. We meet students who attend school in Chattanooga yet only have satellite Internet at home. Bad weather can affect their connections, and students must resort to doing homework at school or finding spaces in the city where they can work like the church. Digital access is divided across the United States: 19 million people don't have access to fixed broadband and in cities like Miami, New Orleans and Dallas, over one-third of people do not have access to high-speed Internet. In this TechKnow episode, we also meet 'Working Dogs for Conservation' in Montana which trains dogs to sniff out endangered species and also locate invasive ones. We see one dog detect invasive mussels, which clog industrial pipes in Montana. The dogs have been deployed to 18 states and 13 countries. The next stop for one trained dog is Zambia, where it will work at a checkpoint to stop vehicles transporting ivory. - Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check out our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

DOUG BRUGGE (USA) Professor, Tufts University Department of Public Health and Community Medicine, Co-editor of “The Navajo People and Uranium Mining” LEONA MORGAN (USA) Leona Morgan, Dene No Nukes, former coordinator Eastern Navajo Dine Against Uranium Mining THE SYMPOSIUM The World Uranium Symposium addressed issues arising from the nuclear fuel chain, from mining uranium to its end-uses and byproducts for civilian or military purposes. Both scientific and community-based, the Symposium was organized around the following themes: health, environment, economy, ethics, governance, human rights and the rights of indigenous peoples. Open to the public, the symposium had hosted more than 300 people per day from 14 to 16 April 2015, and had included local, national and international representatives from the sectors of health, research, industry, education, civil society, policy makers and indigenous communities. local, national and/or international media were present. All presentations of the symposium will be posted in electronic formats (text and / or videos) after the Symposium, in French and / or English. • April 14 (Day 1): Uranium mines and the nuclear life cycle : health and environmental issues • April 15 (Day 2): Civil and military nuclear : ethics, economics and political issues • April 16 (Day 3): Human rights, indigenous peoples' rights and governance issues ORGANIZATIONS INVOLVED The Symposium is jointly organized by Physicians for Global Survival (1985 Nobel Peace Prize), the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, Nature Québec, the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility and the Coalition pour que le Québec ait meilleure mine. It also receives support from the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (Swiss chapter), the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador Sustainable Development Institute, the Cree Nation of Mistissini, MiningWatch Canada, and a number of other local, national and international partners. CONTEXT The Symposium is occurring at a time when many organizations and governments question the future of nuclear power, currently providing about 11% of the world’s electricity. The year 2015 also marks the seventieth anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the corresponding United Nations negotiations of the Non Proliferation Treaty for the prevention and the abolition of nuclear arms. It will also see the tabling on a new UN treaty on climate change. Canada is one of the largest producers and exporters of uranium worldwide, yet its nuclear energy output is in relative decline. Only two provinces still operate nuclear reactors: Ontario and New Brunswick. While uranium has been primarily mined from Saskatchewan, the provinces of British Columbia and Nova Scotia have officially banned uranium mining. Quebec recently shut down its sole nuclear reactor and has tasked the Bureau d’audiences publiques sur l’environnement (BAPE) with conducting an investigation on issues related to uranium mining. It is expected to release its report by May 20 2015. The Symposium aims to tackle these different issues and to provide recommendations to decision makers to better ensure protection for the human health, global security and a safe environment
