Zoologists at Oxford University are using newly developed video devices to record crows in the wild.Scientists have developed miniaturised video cameras, each weighing about 14 grams, which can be attached to two tail feathers using adhesive tape. The device is allowing researchers to track 18 crows in their natural habitat, allowing them to make surprising and intimate observations about their undisturbed behaviour. This technique has been described as helping scientists to break “one of the final frontiers of ornithological field research.”Dr Christian Rutz from the Behavioural Ecology Research Group at the Zoology Department said “Whilst video footage has been taken before using tame, trained birds, it is only now that we have been able to design cameras that are small and light enough to travel with wild birds and let them behave naturally. “Potentially, this new video technology could help us to answer some long-standing questions about the ecology and behaviour of many other bird species that are otherwise difficult to study.”To learn more, visit http://www.newcaledoniancrow.com.

Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch will introduce United Senator Mike Braun.Braun was born in Jasper, Indiana, on March 24, 1954. He graduated from Jasper High School. Braun was a three-sport star athlete; he married his high school sweetheart, Maureen, who was a cheerleader. He attended the all-male Wabash College, where he was a member of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity and graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in economics, and Harvard Business School, where he earned a master’s degreeAfter graduating from Harvard, Braun moved back to Indiana and joined his father’s business manufacturing truck bodies for farmers. When the economy of the mid-1980s hit farmers hard and his father’s business nearly went under, Braun steered the business in the more lucrative direction of selling truck accessories. The business subsequently grew from 15 employees to more than 300. In 1986 Braun and Daryl Rauscher acquired Meyer Body Inc., a manufacturer of truck bodies and distributor of truck parts and equipment. In 1995 Braun fully acquired the company. Meyer Body was renamed Meyer Distributing in 1999.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has approved a six-tier Scores on the Doors hygiene rating scheme for England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Under the scheme, the hygiene standards of all food retailers and foodservice operators will be rated from fail to a top-score of five. Scores will be published on the internet and retail bakeries and foodservice operators encouraged to voluntarily display them on the premises. Scotland is to continue with a two-tier system of ‘pass’ or ‘improvement required’ – a scheme that many industry groups should have been rolled out nationally. Thomas Adams, MD of Northampton bakery chain Oliver Adams told British Baker, that he thought a six-tier scheme gave greater for inconsistencies in how businesses are scored. “Each EHO interprets the rules differently. If it were simply pass or fail, there would be less room for inconsistency.”
Press release: Foreign Secretary statement on international sanctions in response to Russian aggression in the Black Sea
The EU, together with Australia, Canada and the US, has imposed sanctions on individuals for their role in Russia’s use of military force against 3 Ukrainian vessels and their crew in the Kerch Strait and Black Sea in November 2018.The EU sanctions will prevent named individuals from travelling within the EU, and freeze any known assets linked to them in the EU.The UK has consistently stood with Ukraine in opposing this attack and all instances of Russian aggression towards Ukraine, including Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea five years ago. We will continue to do so together with our international partners.Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said: Today, the UK and our international partners in the EU, Australia, Canada and the US have sent an unequivocal message to Russia that their attack on Ukrainian vessels in the Kerch Strait and Black Sea last year was absolutely unacceptable. These sanctions are another example of the international community standing up to Russia as it persistently violates international law. We will continue to take necessary action together in response to Russia’s efforts to destabilise Ukraine. Russia must immediately release the 24 detained servicemen and return the seized vessels. We remain deeply concerned for the safety and welfare of the servicemen who are unjustly held in Russian custody. Russia must allow free and unhindered passage of Ukrainian and international ships through the Kerch Strait and the Sea of Azov. We, with our international partners, stand with Ukraine in opposing Russia’s ongoing efforts to undermine Ukrainian security, sovereignty and territorial integrity.

In September 2004, the Browning Cinema opened on Notre Dame campus. Located in the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center, the Browning Cinema is a THX certified, 200-seat theater that offers a variety of programs and events.“It’s kind of like an arthouse cinema where we don’t really show large commercial-released films,” Kevin Krizmanich, the cinema production manager at Browning Cinema, said. “We do show newer, more independent films like indie films, classic films, cult-classic films, and then we do a lot of series and partnerships with different departments on campus and different groups from the South Bend community.”When attending the Browning, students can expect to see films that are highly renowned and often difficult to access at a typical, commercialized movie theater.Krizmanich said the Browning’s THX certification is very rare on a college campus and having a theater as high of a quality as the Browning on Notre Dame campus is a privilege.Films screened at the Browning Cinema are chosen with careful planning.“The cinema program director’s chief responsibility is to design film series and create partnerships on campus and in the community,” Krizmanich said.Because of the wide variety of resources Notre Dame offers, the Browning often partners with different departments and academics on campus to enrich the cinematic experience at the theater.Another way the Browning strives to enrich the educational experience of film is by frequently presenting short introductions to the audience before a film is screened.“When possible, an introduction really helps frame a film in a certain way,” Krizmanich said. “It takes it beyond the typical movie theater experience. It’s hard not to find somebody who can speak smartly about a film on campus.”The Browning Cinema offers a variety of film series and events, such as the Learning Beyond the Classics film series.“Basically they choose a theme and then choose six films,” said Krizmanich, “This current one we’re doing right now is on films about death row. They help invoke your feelings about the death penalty, and it gives a little historical context about the death penalty as well.”The Browning Cinema also offers National Theatre Live and Met Opera Live, which are live satellite streams of various theaters in London and the metropolitan opera in New York.“That’s a cool program where you get the best of the best in theater and opera live-streamed,” Krizmanich said. “Because of the quality of our theater, you’re getting the best experience around.”Screenings take place six days a week. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, films are shown between 7 & 8 p.m., while Friday screenings take place at 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. On Saturday, there is usually an afternoon screening, along with another 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. screening later that day. The family film series takes place at noon on Sunday, and another film is shown at 3 p.m. on Sunday as well.Not only is the experience at the Browning of high quality, it’s also incredibly affordable for students. Often, students are able to receive free tickets or heavily discounted tickets for films sponsored by various departments across campus.While attending the Browning is often an educational experience, the entertainment value is immense as well, Krizmanich said.“Because we have the resources, we get to bring in directors and experts in the field of cinema and whatever the topic of the film is,” said Krizmanich. “That’s one of the fun things we get to do, and we get to give the community and the students a really cool, unique experience that you don’t get when you just go to a typical movie theater.”Tags: Browning Cinema, DPAC, Film
Professional surfer Mick Fanning fought off a giant shark during the final heat of J-Bay Open in South Africa on Sunday, and the entire ordeal was captured on video.“I was just sitting there,” Fanning told a reporter shortly after he boarded a rescue boat. “I was just about to start moving when I felt something grab and get stuck in my leg rope. I instantly jumped away but it just kept coming at my board and began kicking and screaming. I just saw fins. I never saw teeth then I punched him in the back.”The competition was called off shortly after the attack. Miraculously, Fanning walked with walked away without injury.

Dec 17, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – Tests in Italy have confirmed the first poultry outbreaks of H5N1 avian influenza in the West African country of Benin, according to news services.Agriculture Minister Robert Dovonou said suspected cases found on two farms earlier this month were confirmed by the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) in Padua, Italy, according to a Dec 15 report by Agence France-Presse (AFP).The farms are north of Porto Novo, the capital, and in Cotonou, the commercial capital, both in Benin’s southern coastal strip, AFP and Reuters reported.Benin is surrounded by countries that have faced poultry outbreaks within the last 2 years: Nigeria, Togo, Niger, and Burkina Faso. Nigeria has had one human H5N1 case. Ivory Coast and Ghana are other West African states that have had poultry outbreaks.Benin officials reported the two suspected outbreaks to the OIE on Dec 5, saying 100 birds had died and 245 had been killed to stop the outbreak. Most of the birds were chickens, but eight turkeys were among affected poultry on the Cotonou farm.According to the Reuters report, published today, health experts have expressed concern that Benin’s Voodoo priests could be at risk for avian flu because of their practice of tearing out the throats of live chickens in ritual sacrifices.In other developments, the agriculture ministry in Saudi Arabia destroyed 13,500 ostriches to control an H5N1 outbreak on a farm in the Al-Kharj region, about 50 miles south of Riyadh, according to a report today by ArabNews, an English-language newspaper in the country. An AFP report said the outbreak was discovered Dec 13.As a result of the outbreak, city officials in Riyadh have ordered poultry sellers and restaurants not to sell ostrich meat, the newspaper said.Saudi Arabia has had a series of poultry outbreaks that began Nov 12, according to previous reports. ArabNews said 4 million birds have been culled in 14 outbreaks.Meanwhile, H5N1 was found in a flock of 11 chickens in eastern Germany, according to a Dec 15 Associated Press (AP) report. After several chickens died, two were tested by a federal lab and found infected, the story said. The flock was in the Oberhavel region, northwest of Berlin.The other surviving chickens were destroyed, and poultry within a 2-mile radius of the flock were being checked, the AP reported.Germany’s last reported poultry outbreaks were in the provinces of Bavaria and Thuringia in August and September, according to German reports to the OIE. About 4,000 birds died and more than 336,000 were culled in those outbreaks.See also: OIE reports on Benin and Germany outbreakshttp://www.oie.int/downld/AVIAN%20INFLUENZA/A2007_AI.php#
