Please enter your email address here The Anatomy of Fear Please enter your name here By Jay L. Zagorsky, The Ohio State UniversityAnother Fourth of July is here, the time for backyard barbecues, picnics, cookouts, parades, swimming and fireworks.One of those Independence Day pastimes, however, stands apart: fireworks. They’re a somewhat controversial topic in the US and are covered by a patchwork of different laws.Delaware, Massachusetts and New Jersey all ban any kind of consumer use of fireworks. Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Ohio and Vermont permit sparklers and other novelty devices. Arizona permits the sale of novelty fireworks but not sparklers. New York allows fireworks in 31 counties, but not in New York City. California has banned fireworks in some counties because of drought conditions. The other 39 states impose no special restrictions.Should fireworks be banned in all 50 states?The last Gallup poll done on the subject in 2001 suggests fireworks are extremely popular. Almost two-thirds (63%) of all people polled planned on attending a fireworks show over the Fourth of July holiday, and 26% planned on setting off their own. This year’s figures should be much higher because the Fourth falls on a Saturday night. (When the 2001 Gallup poll was done, the Fourth fell on a Wednesday.)While they are popular, using fireworks is dangerous. Most people don’t need the periodic warnings from fire chiefs and doctors about the danger of consumer fireworks to know that devices designed to blow up can cause serious injuries. Each year there is at least one horrific story about a child being maimed or killed by fireworks.Is a sparkler too dangerous to give to a child?Sparkler via www.shutterstock.comFacts about fireworksFireworks fall into two categories: professional (formally called class 1.3G) and consumer (formally called class 1.4G, but previously called class C).The latest retail trade census showed that in 2012 consumers bought US$376 million worth of pyrotechnics from firework stores. This number is only a part of total consumer sales, since around the Fourth many convenience stores and other merchants temporarily stock fireworks, and these temporary sales are not included.The overwhelming majority of consumer fireworks are imported from China, which is not unexpected given China invented them.Official government figures do not break out professional fireworks companies separately because the industry is extremely small, and many Fourth of July shows are not run by professional firms but instead are set up by clubs, retired explosive experts from the military or fire department officials. However, the US manufactured about $200 million of professional fireworks and imported about $35 million more in 2012. Together this means fireworks are at least a $600 million per year business, and more likely around $1 billion.Clearly, people in the US love their fireworks and are using more every year. From 1996, when the import data start, to 2014, the US has doubled the number of fireworks imported, when measured by weight, and almost tripled the number of fireworks imported, when measured in dollars.Fireworks safetyFireworks are restricted in states and counties because of two concerns: injuries and accidental fires.The best data on these problems come from the “Alliance to Stop Consumer Fireworks,” which is an umbrella group of firefighting and medical professionals opposed to letting individuals use small fireworks.Data on the number of accidental fires caused by fireworks from this anti-fireworks group show a clear downward trend (see graph here). The number of fires caused by fireworks has fallen from about 35,000 in 2001 to about 20,000 in 2011.The graph below adjusts injury data from the same anti-fireworks group (figure 1 here) for the growing US population. The graph shows the number of people per 100,000 who went to a hospital emergency room with a fireworks-related injury. While in the 1980s, about five people per 100,000 each year went to the hospital, by 2011 the number had fallen to about three.Number of people injured in the US by fireworks and requiring an emergency room visit adjusted for population.Fireworks freedom?Fireworks, of course, are amazing. My family and I have traveled far and wide to attend fireworks shows. Large explosions filling the night sky are simultaneously thrilling and terrifying.Firecrackers, Roman candles, bottle rockets and cherry bombs are probably no safer today than they were decades ago. However, at the same time that rising quantities of fireworks are being used, the US is seeing fewer injuries per 100,000 people and fewer accidental firework fires. This suggests people in the US are being smarter and more careful when using fireworks.This improvement in safety shows much less need to ban fireworks. Instead, more states with fireworks restrictions should follow Georgia’s complete recent reversal and New York’s recent partial reversal and think about making fireworks legal.Restricting fireworks in places facing drought, restricting their usage near dangerous locations like gas stations, banning young children from using fireworks and banning drunken adults from lighting them off all make sense. But blanket state- or county-wide bans that are not particularly well-enforced around the Fourth don’t make sense.The patchwork set of rules and restrictions should be eliminated. People should have the freedom to light fireworks on the day set aside for celebrating freedom, the Fourth of July.

New rugby video game campaign backed by international players and youtubers

first_imgThursday Jun 18, 2020 New rugby video game campaign backed by international players and youtubers A number of influential rugby players and rugby youtubers have come together to push for a better rugby video game to be produced. It’s the age-old tale from rugby fans, who for many years have been less than satisfied with the standard of console and pc games released.ADVERTISEMENTThe theory, from youtube Andrew Harries, is that to grow rugby’s fan base for younger generations, a big-budget rugby video game is required.He’s leant on opinions from the likes of Bryan Habana, Tim Visser, Adam Jones and many more to make a video to show how much demand there is for a quality rugby video game.While there are of course established gaming companies already throwing their rugby games in the mix, the complexities of the sport of rugby, and indeed the lack of demand compared with more generic titles, means that fans are often left wanting.The hope is that this new approach towards it will get some attention.

The house is originally a semi-detached house, façade facing to the West, with 2 sides to access to light and natural wind in front and behind the house. The renovation solution given to the project is to prioritize to open up to 2 open sides, ensure maximum lighting and ventilation for the house. The open spaces are all directed to the trees. The façade of the West borders with wood lamination system, in addition to reducing solar radiation, also playing the role of shaping the building. The front garden has been raised to create space below to make a garage for the family, playing a role in reducing radiation, dust and urban noise.Save this picture!© Trieu ChienSpace Expansion. The basic spatial structure of a normal tube house is often in the form of: a staircase acting as the main traffic axis and the remaining useful space will be evenly distributed to the front and rear of the home. This structure is simple, easy to duplicate, but when placed in specific situations and requirements of the host will not fit due to its boredom. Because the tube structure is often narrow horizontally, expansion or contraction of space will take place in height to increase the interest of the house.Save this picture!© Trieu ChienProject gallerySee allShow lessUMAH Coffee Shop / N+A StudioSelected ProjectsConcrete House / Costaveras ArquitetosSelected Projects Share Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/941113/hl-house-apdi Clipboard Lead Architects: Photographs:  Trieu Chien Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project 2020 “COPY” Houseslast_img read more

We divided the main space into two parts: the first one is an open plan kitchen and living room, the second one is a bedroom and workspace which had been arranged on a plywood podium along with the windows. Despite that, the apartment space all together is felt as a whole. All technical zones were arranged as densely as possible to allow more space for the living and working zones, where the owners spend most of their time.The cooking zone is not visible from the living room, because it is hidden behind a bar table in the middle of the room. The living room and kitchen are separated from the bedroom with a light plywood partition. Its upper part consists of a series of LED tubes made by the client. They are programmed to be manually controlled and so that different lighting effects can be created. Two drawers on wheels on both sides of the sofa can be joined to create additional working space. One of the key features of the project is a sauna, which the customer has built himself. It is located next to the shower.Save this picture!© Ivan ErofeevSave this picture!© Ivan ErofeevWe chose natural materials for furniture and finishing, such as wood, micro cement, and natural paints. We left the plain concrete ceiling with an uneven texture which is interesting to look at. We think of an apartment as a plain canvas that the customer can fill with the things that are important to him or her. This is the way the place comes alive. In such a way it happened in this case. The owners filled the apartment with paintings, decorations, and lots of plants.

Guinea-Bissau suspends Portuguese public radio and TV broadcasts

first_img News Announcing the measure on 30 June, Guinea-Bissau communication minister Victor Pereira blamed Portugal’s failure to respect bilateral agreements on media cooperation with its former colony.He initially said the suspension included the Portuguese state news agency Lusa as well as the Rádio e Televisão de Portugal (RTP) and Radio Portugal (RDP). But the government later clarified that Lusa was not affected.Guinea-Bissau’s condition for lifting the suspension is a renegotiation of the media cooperation accords, which were never respected. The government had previously given Portugal until 30 June to respond to its request for a renegotiation.Under a 1997 agreement, Portugal was supposed to open an RTP bureau in Bissau and train Guinea-Bissau journalists and broadcast technicians. There was also supposed to be a regular exchange of programmes.“It is not right that journalists should have to pay for political disputes, RSF said. This decision endangers freedom of expression and freedom of information. By suspending these broadcasts to put pressure on Portugal, Guinea-Bissau is cutting itself off from essential media voices that contribute to a plurality of opinions at a time of crisis.”Silencing the government’s criticsIn a communiqué issued on 30 June shortly after the original announcement, the Portuguese government said that it “exercises no editorial control over RTP, RDP and Lusa” and that these media “act with the same independence and impartiality in Bissau as in all those countries where they have a presence.”Aside from the official reason, it seems that Guinea-Bissau’s President José Mário Vaz and his government want to silence media regarded as sharing the views of the Portuguese government, which is suspected of not being neutral in the political crisis that began more than a year ago in Guinea-Bissau.Guinea-Bissau is ranked 79th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.
