first_imgAerial images of the 30 km (19 mile) exclusion zone around the plant, site of the world’s worst nuclear accident in 1986, showed scorched, blackened earth and the charred stumps of still smouldering trees.The Emergency Situations Service said radiation levels in the exclusion zone had not changed and those in nearby Kiev, the Ukrainian capital, “did not exceed natural background levels”.Greenpeace Russia said the situation is much worse than Ukrainian authorities believe, and that the fires cover an area one thousand times bigger than they claim.On April 4 Ukrainian authorities said the blaze covered an area of 20 hectares, but Greenpeace cited satellite images showing it was around 12,000 hectares in size at that time.“According to satellite images taken on Monday, the area of the largest fire has reached 34,400 hectares,” it said, adding that a second fire, stretching across 12,600 hectares, was just one kilometre away from the defunct plant. Ukrainian officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment on those claims.Rashid Alimov, head of energy projects at Greenpeace Russia, said the fires, fanned by the wind, could disperse radionuclides, atoms that emit radiation.“A fire approaching a nuclear or hazardous radiation facility is always a risk,” Alimov said. “In this case we’re hoping for rain tomorrow.”Chernobyl tour operator Yaroslav Yemelianenko, writing on Facebook, described the situation as critical.He said the fire was rapidly expanding and had reached the abandoned city of Pripyat, two kilometers from where “the most highly active radiation waste of the whole Chernobyl zone is located”. He called on officials to warn people of the danger.Satellite images taken by NASA Worldview and seen by Reuters showed the two fires had extended far into the exclusion zone.#NASA images show continuing spread of fires in high-radiation #Chernobyl zone from April 8 to April 9— Reinhard Uhrig (@reinharduhrig) April 11, 2020The fires, which follow unusually dry weather, began on April 3 in the western part of the exclusion zone and spread to nearby forests.Police say they have identified a 27-year old local resident who they accuse of deliberately starting the blaze.It remains unclear if the person, who has reportedly confessed to starting a number of fires “for fun”, is partly or fully responsible.Topics : A huge forest fire in Ukraine that has been raging for more than a week is now just one kilometre from the defunct Chernobyl nuclear power plant and poses a radiation risk, Greenpeace Russia warned on Monday, citing satellite images.Ukraine’s Emergency Situations Service said it was still fighting the fires, but that the situation was under control.Video footage shot by Reuters on Sunday showed plumes of black smoke billowing into the sky and trees still ablaze, with firefighters in helicopters trying to put out the fires.last_img read more

first_img“The prevention and control situation remains complicated, we cannot lower our guard in the slightest.”Officials found that 253 out of 256 Beijing cases were linked to Xinfadi in the south of the city, while contact tracing for the remaining three was still ongoing.The city announced seven new cases on Wednesday, with the rate of infection slowing since the start of this week.”This sends a very positive signal, and proves that the prevention and control measures taken lately, as well as lockdown of residential compounds, are effective,” said Lei Haichao, head of the Beijing health commission. The new coronavirus outbreak that has infected 256 people in Beijing since early June is “under control”, officials in the Chinese capital said Wednesday, but fears still remain over the risk of community transmission.Authorities have raced to contain the outbreak linked to the largest wholesale food market in Beijing after the first case was announced on June 11, leading to a partial lockdown of the city.”The Beijing epidemic directly linked to Xinfadi [market] is basically under control, but at the same time we have discovered household and workplace cluster infections and cases of community transmission,” said Beijing municipal government spokesman Xu Hejian at a briefing. “The combination of fever clinics, discovering (cases) from close contacts, and mass nucleic acid testing have played an important role in early detection.”The city increased its daily nucleic acid sample testing capacity to 300,000 from 100,000 per day in early June, said Lei, adding that 137 cases — just over half — were found through screening.Nearly three million people have been tested.Many cases have been low-income migrant workers at Xinfadi and nearby restaurants. The market and dozens of residential compounds have been under lockdown since June 13.Beijing has mass-tested wholesale market workers, restaurant workers, residents of medium and high-risk neighborhoods and delivery couriers over the past week.The cities of Wuhan, where the initial COVID outbreak emerged late last year, and Mudanjiang have also seen similar mass testing campaigns to root out undiscovered asymptomatic cases.Experts warned that smaller, recurrent outbreaks were likely in future.”There may be an increase in cases in the winter or next spring, but I don’t think the outbreak will be as big as the first wave of the pandemic,” said Zhong Nanshan, a leading respiratory expert who spearheaded China’s response to the SARS pandemic, on Wednesday.center_img Topics :last_img read more

first_imgBy Greg SoukupEAGLE, Neb. (Sept. 4) – A record-setting IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Nationals ended with a familiar face in victory lane at Eagle Raceway.Jack Dover built up a big lead in Sunday’s 35-lap main event, then had just enough cylinders left to take the $2,500 victory ahead of Californian Blake Robertson.“We dropped a cylinder about 10 laps in and I could feel the car getting slower,” said Dover, also champion of the 2014 event. “The yellow came out with three laps to go and I was praying the motor would get me to the checkers.”A record 117 drivers from 15 states competed in the fourth annual Nationals and eight states were represented in the main event for IMCA EMI RaceSaver Sprint Cars on Sunday.Jason Martin, Andy Shouse and Tyler Drueke completed the top five.“It’s always fun to win an event like this twice,” said Dover. “Sprint Nationals is a very prestigious event. To get your name on the list of drivers who have won it is awesome.”Dover was a two-time winner at Eagle during the regular season and made another visit to victory lane following a Sprint Series of Nebraska feature at Beatrice.Defending champion John Carney II was running in the top three, chasing Chad Wilson and Dover before becoming the casualty of an early incident.Dover took the lead two laps later while Trevor Grossenbacher and Martin got past Shouse to advance to third and fourth, respectively, on lap 11. Martin passed Grossenbacher on lap 16. Wilson was passed by Martin on lap 19.The next 13 laps stayed green before Wilson spun out with three to go, making the top four Dover, Martin, Shouse and Drueke for the restart.Robertson moved back to fourth on the restart and kept advancing, taking third the next time around and passing Martin for second after another circuit.Robertson had lined up eighth on the original grid, got up to fifth and then fell back to 12th before he started working his way toward the front.“For as many cars as were there, I was definitely happy with how I finished,” he said. “I definitely wanted to win it but we just came up a little short. The racing was tremendous all three days.”Dover and Drueke were $700 qualifying feature winners on Friday and Saturday, respectively. Martin was the $1,000 winner of Saturday’s Jake Ita Memorial Race of Champions.Sprint Nationals was presented by Precise Racing Products and NCM/The Cat Rental Store.Feature results – 1.

first_img Press Association The leading four clubs in the Premier League all have a chance of finishing the weekend top of the table. VILLA NEED A WIN – AND FAST Any notion of a honeymoon period for Remi Garde is well and truly over before it even got started following successive defeats. The 3-2 home reverse by Watford offered few signs of hope for the beleaguered Holte End faithful and Villa appear resigned to a long, harsh winter. However, get things right away to a Southampton side reeling from their midweek Capital One Cup thrashing by Liverpool and with a bit of luck elsewhere, the gap could be down to just two points. Okay, so it is a long shot, but in this game, you just never know…. WILL McCLAREN BE SET FOR THE KLOPP CHOP? Just what you don’t want when your team is producing tepid display after tepid display is the visit of a squad rejuvenated by a new manager. All the extra training and McClaren’s tactics boards will count for nothing if Newcastle do not to show up again when Liverpool roll into town on Sunday afternoon. Fail to produce against Jurgen Klopp’s well-drilled side and you fear the Toon Army will, quite rightly, just about have had enough. Question is, though, will Mike Ashley? CAN THE PATCHED-UP GUNNERS GET BACK ON SONG? Arsene Wenger must have been left wondering whether Arsenal’s bad luck on injuries will ever end after seeing Alexis Sanchez and Santi Cazorla added to a packed treatment room at London Colney. The good news, though, is Aaron Ramsey should be back in action against Sunderland, while Theo Walcott is also closing in on full match fitness. There is no doubt when the Gunners have everyone firing, they are a Premier League force to be reckoned with. When you have little option but to stick 17-year-old Jeff Reine Adelaide on the bench as one of the last-men standing, maybe not so much. ARE CHELSEA ON THE UP AGAIN? Whisper it quietly, but Chelsea might slowly be moving in the right direction again. Three clean sheets in a row and even time for a Christmas party before attentions turned to getting back to business with the visit of Bournemouth. Blues boss Jose Mourinho has certainly had enough of unwanted headlines, so perhaps the visit of a Bournemouth team which has not won since mid-September will provide a welcome tonic, although remember, it is never over until the final whistle, whenever that comes, as Everton found out to their cost last weekend. WILL JAMIE VARDY EVER STOP SCORING? The remarkable achievement of the Leicester frontman, who has taken the Premier League record with 11 goals in as many games, could end up with the one-time non-league player seeing his rags-to-riches story on the big screen, it emerged in the wake of his strike against Manchester United. However, we all know you are only as good as your last game and Vardy knows full well just how hard it is to stay at the top of his game. He will also no doubt now get more frequent gentle reminders from Premier League defenders, starting at Swansea on Saturday – of course they have to catch him first….. center_img At the other end, the contest to stay clear of the relegation dogfight remains just as close, while Aston Villa battle not to be cut adrift. Here, Press Association Sport takes a look at five talking points ahead of the weekend’s games. last_img read more

There had been talk of switching the Olympics to spring, a move that would coincide with the blooming of Japan’s famous cherry blossoms.

All sports federations involved in the Olympics signed off on the new dates.The governing body of track and field says it supports the new dates for the Tokyo Olympics and is working with organizers in Eugene, Oregon, to move its world championships to 2022.In other Olympic news:— Tokyo Olympic Committee CEO Toshiro Muto is promising transparency in calculating the costs of reschedule the Olympic Games. Katsuhiro Miyamoto, an emeritus professor of sports economics at Kansai University, puts the costs as high as $4 billion. That would cover the price of maintaining stadiums, refitting them, paying rentals, penalties and other expenses. Japan is officially spending $12.6 billion to organize the Olympics. However, an audit bureau of the Japanese government says the costs are twice that much. All of the spending is public money except $5.6 billion from a privately funded operating budget.
