“Antarctica melts, in 2100 flooded the city at sea level, millions of refugees”

Scientists are sounding the alarm underestimated the melting of the Antarctic ice. Hundreds of millions of people will have to evacuate coastal cities if you do not block the greenhouse gas
The era Anthropocene – in which mankind has imposed its ecosystem changes such as to overcome the natural ability to self-regulation – takes the Earth to biblical floods in 2100. The countdown has begun according to a study published in Nature that calculates, for that date, an increase of 2 meters in sea levels, twice as much as expected, unless emissions of carbon dioxide emissions will be drastically reduced. This differential in the estimate would be born from the contribution undervaluation of the melting of Antarctic ice. It was believed that the snowfall in the South Pole would have “frozen” the bulk of the cap, but the study shows that it is not. In the past there have been ages when sea levels were higher, as in the period Interglacial between 130 thousand and 115 thousand years ago when it was greater than 9.6 meters, or the Pliocene (3 million years ago), when it was still higher. With one difference: at that time the coasts were not inhabited by hundreds of millions of human beings as today.
environmental refugees – whether it will be confirmed this analysis – will join the millions of war refugees and economic problems that already roam the world in search of safety. “These data – says the prof. Robert DeConto of the University of Massachusetts Amherst, who led the research – would mean disaster for many low-lying city, “adding that if the process is not stopped soon there will be a rise in sea level measured in the order of centimeters and not of millimeters. Speaking of the city just above the sea level also means saying metropolis like New York, Mumbai and Guangzhou inhabited by millions of people. According to the World Bank, the cities immediately at risk would be Miami, Boston and Nagoya and many cities in China, Vietnam, Bangladesh and Ivory Coast. The biggest danger is a breakdown of the ice dock around the south pole that would release a “piece” of the continent offshore intended to melt rapidly due to the storms increasingly virulent and the warming of the climate warm currents triggered. In the Antarctic there are also accumulations of 1000 meters which, if not frozen, could collapse under their own weight going to increase the volume of free water in the oceans. DeConto calculates that if you instead bring CO2 emissions to zero would stop the process and that there is still a 10% profit margin to stop the catastrophe that would force the evacuation of hundreds of millions of people.
Last February was the warmest ever according to data from NASA, of 1.35 degrees Celsius warmer than the average from 1951 to 1980 and the Arctic the most narrow ever since I started in ’79 with measurements of the ice surface. But the Arctic ice now “floats” on the northern ocean surface, so its melting does not raise sea levels. Are the glaciers of Greenland and Antarctica, which is a mainland firm ground, to cause the rise in water level when it melts, pour into the sea. A confirmation that the waters are warming with an unexpected rhythm comes from ‘ “epidemic” of coral bleaching observed in recent months from Indonesia to Hawaii that also affects the Great Barrier Australian north coast. A scientific task force has investigated 500 different points between Cairns and Papua New Guinea, noting that the phenomenon is ubiquitous. Bleaching is a form of “the coral stress” attributed mostly to the heating of the water. “It ‘was the saddest research trip of my life – said prof. Terry Hughes, coordinator of the National Coral Bleaching Taskforce – almost without exception every barrier on which we passed had significant levels of bleaching from the root to the top. We covered 4000 km. the oldest parts of the Great Barrier and found only four healthy colon. Gravity is much greater than the previous phenomena of ’98 and 2002 “.

Yamaha Yard Built 900 Faster Wasp Roland Sands

Roland Sands got their hands on an MT-09 inspired by the TZ750 uncle Kenny. It’s coming a new dirt track series? We hope
Although this is a type of media that has enjoyed much popularity in recent years in the undergrowth custom, that of motorcycle dirt track is a category that has had very little visibility, between dealers. In short, they are motorcycles that appeal to a lot of people, but if you drive one you have to order it from home. However, someone seems to be starting to think of making it a seriously. Yamaha is one of the houses the most reliable in this sense. It seems, in fact, that to try to imagine the lines of the guys Iwata have decided to turn to one of the most famous trainers in the world: Mr. Roland Sands.

It is with your help that has taken shape the latest in the series Built Yard. This time, the focus of attention was a MT-09, the three-cylinder 850 cc that is so popular even in our market in the last year. A very interesting idea, especially after the batch of projects “above” the smallest MT-07.

The Faster Wasp – this is his name – is inspired by the legendary openly TZ750, the bike with which, in the 70s, Kenny Roberts taught the world what it was like to drive, and has many original details. Among these we point out first of all the superstructures really lust. That codon and the saddle we like a lot, as well as the hand-beaten aluminum tank.

Also new are the vents, the cover of the radiator, the front table number plate and front fender. Among the more technical details worth mentioning the new exhaust system, formed from a kit of manifolds Two Brothers Racing and steel muffler RSD Slant. Also new is the braking system, consisting of front rotors superbike RSD, radially mounted calipers Performance Machine, RSD radial pump and pipes Spiegler. Signed two new cartridges for Öhlins fork and an unprecedented shock of the same house complete the picture and allow a more precise than they did the standard suspension.

Roland Sands tells us more. “I was running on the TZ250 and I rode to many Yamaha off-road. Ours is a long story. When I see what the Japanese brand has done and the goals it is placed, I feel really inspired. We have already made some bikes together. This three-cylinder engine is light and is really strong. It’s not a competition model, but transfers the level of performance Racing in an easy to drive. It’s great because it’s fun and I think a motorcycle is to entertain: “Faster Wasp” has this ability but, in addition, it offers outstanding performance. In this new concept we’ve been working and I both Kenny Roberts, one of my heroes, putting our common past Racing and coupling it with the three-cylinder engine. It was a very fun project and I am very happy with the result. “

Lose weight eating? Nothing is impossible

Playing sports, finding the right balance at the table, avoiding the excesses and go shopping in a smart way: continue to be good forks without guilt is really possible. Here’s some advice

To lose weight you need to stay really thin? It is not always so. Except in cases very difficult to recover, you can lose weight while continuing to eat. Of course, the important thing is finding the right balance between fast and almost absolute great feasts, poles apart in ways of sharing the same danger level of negative effects for our body.

Frequent snacks and condiments modest
The first useful advice to eat a nod to the scale, therefore, is not to be limited to only two daily meals. Better, however, make frequent snacks, perhaps based on fruit. An apple or a banana mid-morning, for example, and an orange or carrot in the afternoon can quench your hunger without sweat excessively and without compromising the line. Also at the table, before the main meal, you can start with a nice salad as a starter to start the digestion in advance and foster a sense of satiety. To remember, however, that the sauce too threatens to ruin any kind of effort against the bacon.

Goodbye cocktails
The fibers contained in rice, whole wheat pasta and cereals, help in the same way to satiate before salad. And eat the right also helps the proper functioning of the digestive and intestinal activity. However, what we must avoid is alcohol. A glass of wine at the table is granted, a pint of beer a day definitely not. And the spirits? Who poses the question is decidedly off-road. In short, better to say goodbye to cocktails if you want to lose weight without changing their habits.

Avoid skipping meals
Skipping meals, then, is a very grave error, but also among the most frequent for people trying to lose weight. Metabolism is like a sponge: If you fast for lunch, in the evening you could eat a whole fridge without even chewing anything. Set aside the food at noon, then, it is likely to increase the feeling of hunger during the rest of the day and that’s not very good, because it forces the body to absorb more nutrients as soon as possible. In other words, skip lunch means finding not stop over eating, because constantly hungry, soon as you return home from the office.

Sport is the best diet
No diet, too, can lead to satisfactory results without the right amount of physical activity. And also because this train speeds up your metabolism and allows you to burn more calories. Sport, then, is an ally of a healthy diet, which is good that they find little space saturated fats from meat consumption. Better, then, to prefer products of the sea, without excluding the rest. A diet that completely eliminates something, in fact, is difficult to correct diet.

The foods are essential for the proper balance
Finally, if you want to play it safe, the foods that should always be at the table for dining but then complains constantly with partners of their own weight, are for example cucumbers, celery, asparagus, broccoli, cabbage, lean meats, tomatoes, papaya and apples. These are natural foods that can satisfy the right, provide nutrients useful to our body and live better. Eat and lose weight, in a nutshell, it is really possible. Just be a bit ‘more careful and complain less.

Who knows Greece knows that the places to stop are so many, who does not know will be able to do on this holiday that will make it unforgettable. Stay in Mykonos, the Pension Marmaras for 7 nights 7 to 14 September will cost 315 Euros for a double room budget.

It can not miss Ibiza as a destination for singles where you can find everything you look for: local, happy hour, new experiences, beautiful beaches. The days here will be full of fun with the beaches that are still full of people from all over the world and with that evening will be full of knowledge and events to see that in Ibiza never fail.

Even Italy will lose the primacy of fun. The Adriatic Coast has always been a place of nightlife where singles (but not only) organize their holidays. Even here the beaches and nightlife will be the masters in the journey in late summer. Milano Marittima is the undisputed capital of Romagna evening entertainment with its street bars and discos. Stay here at Caesar Hotel for 7 nights in the period 7 to 14 September will cost 300 euro for a single room with sea view balcony and breakfast included.
