In new tactic, Navalny supporters to rally in courtyards

first_imgLocal NewsUS NewsWorld News Twitter By Digital AIM Web Support – February 9, 2021 WhatsApp TAGS  Pinterest Pinterest Facebookcenter_img Twitter Facebook MOSCOW (AP) — A top ally of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny on Tuesday announced a new anti-government protest, urging residents of big cities to briefly gather in residential courtyards this weekend with their cellphone flashlights on. Navalny strategist Leonid Volkov said the protest will start at 8 p.m. Sunday and last 15 minutes. The new rally format — similar to the tactics opposition supporters employed during protests in neighboring Belarus — could prevent Russian riot police from interfering and allow anyone to participate, Volkov wrote in a Facebook post. The protest will coincide with Valentine’s Day, and Volkov titled his announcement “Love is stronger than fear.” “You will raise your phone flashlights — and someone, maybe, will bring candles — and form a heart shape with them … You will take a picture of it from above, from one of the apartments, and post it on Instagram. Let’s have social media feeds filled with thousands of shining hearts from dozens of Russian cities,” Volkov wrote. “No OMON (riot police), no fear.” Navalny, 44, an anti-corruption investigator and Russian President Vladimir Putin’s most prominent critic, was arrested Jan. 17 upon returning from Germany, where he spent five months recovering from a nerve-agent poisoning that he blames on the Kremlin. Russian authorities have rejected the accusation. His arrest and jailing sparked nationwide protests, with tens of thousands of people rallying across Russia for two weekends in a row in the largest outpouring of discontent in years. Russian authorities responded with a harsh crackdown. More than 11,000 people have been detained, and hundreds were handed jail terms. Several of Navalny’s close allies face criminal charges and are under house arrest. Last week, a Moscow court ruled that while Navalny was recovering in Germany, he violated the probation terms of his suspended sentence from a 2014 money-laundering conviction and ordered him to serve two years and eight months in prison. Even before that ruling, Navalny rejected the 2014 conviction political persecution and the European Court of Human Rights called it “arbitrary and manifestly unreasonable.” In the wake of the heavy police crackdown, Volkov said that protests should pause until spring, as trying to maintain rallies every weekend would only lead to many more arrests. However, on Tuesday he cited the need to “adopt something that is stronger than fear” of repressions and to hold a demonstration that police wouldn’t be able to derail. “We have already become the majority, but Putin divides us by (riot police) cordons so that we can’t see each other and see how many of us there are. We need to find a way to overcome that,” Volkov wrote. Asked whether the opposition’s call to gather in courtyards can be viewed as inciting unauthorized protests, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said it was “hard to say,” but assured reporters that if someone in Russia violates the law, they will be held accountable by law enforcement. Navalny’s arrest and jailing heightened tensions between Russia and the European Union. European leaders demanded the release of the opposition leader, and the Kremlin has said it won’t listen to Western criticism of Navalny’s sentencing and police action against his supporters. Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on Tuesday charged that Navalny’s allies were “agents of influence” of NATO and that they changed their mind about putting protests on pause after receiving instructions from the bloc’s members “on how to be ‘smarter’ about continuing the subversive work.” Zakharova pointed to an online conference with EU, U.S. and U.K. officials that Volkov and another Navalny associate, Vladimir Ashurkov, took part in on Monday. Volkov said on Twitter on Monday that sanctions against individual Russian officials and tycoons were discussed at the event and called it “a sore spot” for Russian officials.

The EGY of three of the top MSAs’ decreased compared to last quarter, including Rochester at 13.9 percent which had the largest decrease of 3.3 percent. HouseCanary indicates this drop as a sign that the top MSA market may be beginning to soften. It’s also worth noting no other MSA decreased more than 0.7 percent compared to Q2.The MSAs of Memphis,TN-MS-AR, Buffalo-Cheektowaga, Birmingham-Hoover, and Cleveland-Elyria landed at 13.7, 13.3, 13.1, and 13.0 percent respectively.  The HCRI analyzes 40 years of residential property data spanning over 1 billion transactions, 100 million macroeconomic and local data points, and 3 million census blocks across the country.

Climate change and the evolution of high-latitude terrestrial vegetation and floras

first_imgOur understanding of polar vegetation and climate through time has expanded enormously in the past five years as a consequence of improved logistics, detailed studies of plant fossils in their proper sedimentological context, and the development of sophisticated physiognomic methods for extracting the climate signal present in plant fossil assemblages. These revelations are particularly timely in that climate change is most strongly expressed at the poles, and polar conditions play a critical role in determining global climate. By studying the evolution and change in polar vegetation, valuable insights on possible future biotic responses to global warming can be obtained.last_img read more

Freeze tolerance, supercooling points and ice formation: comparative studies on the subzero temperature survival of limno-terrestrial tardigrades

Many limno-terrestrial tardigrades live in unstable habitats where they experience extreme environmental conditions such as drought, heat and subzero temperatures. Although their stress tolerance is often related only to the anhydrobiotic state, tardigrades can also be exposed to great daily temperature fluctuations without dehydration. Survival of subzero temperatures in an active state requires either the ability to tolerate the freezing of body water or mechanisms to decrease the freezing point. Considering freeze tolerance in tardigrades as a general feature, we studied the survival rate of nine tardigrade species originating from polar, temperate and tropical regions by cooling them at rates of 9, 7, 5, 3 and 1 degrees Ch(-1) down to -30 degrees C then returning them to room temperature at 10 degrees Ch(-1). The resulting moderate survival after fast and slow cooling rates and low survival after intermediate cooling rates may indicate the influence of a physical effect during fast cooling and the possibility that they are able to synthesize cryoprotectants during slow cooling. Differential scanning calorimetry of starved, fed and cold acclimatized individuals showed no intraspecific significant differences in supercooling points and ice formation. Although this might suggest that metabolic and biochemical preparation are non-essential prior to subzero temperature exposure, the increased survival rate with slower cooling rates gives evidence that tardigrades still use some kind of mechanism to protect their cellular structure from freezing injury without influencing the freezing temperature. These results expand our current understanding of freeze tolerance in tardigrades and will lead to a better understanding of their ability to survive subzero temperature conditions. read more

Life’s a beach in Oxford Castle

first_imgOxford will soon have a beach, with 23 tonnes of sand, deck chairs and palm fronds to be deposited in Oxford Castle.The beach is part of a new bar created by Max Mason, a former Royal Naval officer, who set out to make Oxford home to “Britain’s most literally remote beach”. The bar will be in the old prison of Oxford’s medieval castle.Mason commented, “Oxford’s a town overrun with great green spaces, but what we always really need is a beachside area – it’s where people look their best.”He continued, “Right in the middle of the city, in the historic Oxford Castle Quarter, we’ll be having BBQs from The Big Bang, sausage emporium, we’ll be enjoying beach parties with music from Jack FM and we’ll be having local ‘Beach Beautiful’ sessions with local boutique hairdressers Electric Oxford. It’s going to wake Oxford up a little, that’s the aim.”The beach bar, the latest venture of Big Bang Restaurants, will open this Saturday.The project is being staffed by Aspire Oxford, a local company which provides sub-contracting work for those “who face barriers to securing meaningful employment”, including rehabilitated criminals and formerly homeless people.Rick Mower, Chief Executive of Aspire Oxford, explained why he wanted the charity to get involved: “Being able to get ex-offenders working within the Oxford prison walls for an entirely different purpose is a great initiative – we love being involved”Students have welcomed the arrival of the beach to Oxford. One student commented, “This bar might be what gets me through my finals. I’ve got ninety-nine problems but a beach aint one.”last_img read more
