'Sixth extinction' of wildlife faster than feared

‘Sixth extinction’ of wildlife faster than feared

‘Sixth extinction’ of wildlife faster than feared

The sixth mass extinction of life on earth is occurring faster than scientists have warned fear.

More than 30% of animals with vertebral column – fish, birds, amphibians, reptiles and mammals – decrease both in variety and population, according to the first comprehensive analysis of these trends.

“This is the case of a biological annihilation occurring all over the world,” said Stanford professor Rodolfo Dirzo, co-author of a study published Monday in the US journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) .

There are about a decade, experts fear that a further global deceleration of the species has been threatened.

Today, most agree that it is ongoing – but the new study suggests that the course is already stuck.

It provides the long-awaited data on the threat to wildlife, mapping of the lower areas and populations of 27,600 species. For 177 mammals, the researchers painted data for the period 1900-2015.

Mammals under supervision have lost a third of their original habitat, the researchers showed.

Forty percent of them – including rhinoceroses, orangutans, gorillas and many large cats – survive 20% or less of the land they have traveled before.

Biodiversity loss has accelerated recently.

“Several species of mammals were relatively safe there one or two decades are now in danger of extinction,” including the cheetahs, lions and giraffes, the study showed.

Globally, massive deaths – considered the sixth in the last five billion years – is the worst since three quarters of life on Earth, including non-avian dinosaurs were exterminated out there 66 millions of years ago by The impact of a giant meteorite.

Tropical regions experienced the highest number of declining species. In southern and southeastern Asia, large mammal species have lost more than four-fifths of their historical ranges.

While fewer species disappear in temperate zones, the percentage is as high or higher.

Up to half the number of animals that have shared our planet are no longer here, a loss that the authors describe as “a massive erosion of the greatest biological diversity in the history of the earth.”

There is no mystery as to why: our own species of growth – which has more than doubled in number from 1960 to 7400000000 – to eat, obstruct and pollute their planetary cohabitants of existence.

In comparison, there are less than 20,000 lions in the wild, less than 7,000 cheetahs, 500,000 giant pandas and approximately 250 Sumatran rhinos.

The main factors behind the decline of wildlife are habitat loss, over consumption, pollution, invasive species, disease and poaching in the case of tigers, elephants, rhinoceroses and other large animals. Its parts of the body.

It is expected that climate change to become a major threat in the coming decades, some animals – polar bears more – are already in decline due to rising temperatures and changing climatic conditions.

“The massive loss of populations and species reflects our lack of empathy for all wildlife species that have been our partners and our origins,” said lead author Gerardo Ceballos of the National Autonomous University of Mexico.

Beyond any moral imperative, there are practical reasons to disconcert the eclipse of animals, whether a megafauna or less charismatic creatures, the researchers warned.

The disappearance of a carnivore or a high herbivore level can have a cascade effect on the food chain, disrupting entire ecosystems.

Other species directly provide the “services” to humans, such as bees bee pollinating crops and birds that provide pest control.

Previous studies show that ecosystems subjected to stress, while lasting, have a breaking point – a rapid change can cause a collapse.

Reliance Jio's Rs 500 4G phone leak shows its design and reveals full specs

Reliance Jio’s Rs 500 4G phone leak shows its design and reveals full specs

Reliance Jio’s Rs 500 4G phone leak shows its design and reveals full specs

After changing space telecommunications with gifts and unlimited calling service, Jio is now ready to enter the telephony market.

A leaked report last week revealed that Jio is likely to launch a dedicated telephone Rs 500 at its annual general meeting (AGM) on July 21, but the company has not yet confirmed anything about it.

But before its release, Jio’s 4G phone photos were revealed. The images show the design details and the key information.

Two new reports – both TechPP and TelecomTalk – reveal almost every detail about the new phone with Jio.

And the two quotes look pretty similar. Both reports indicate that the new Jio feature will be released under the LYF brand.

The company has already launched several smartphones of the LYF brand, and is said to launch a phone with a feature that will be priced at 500 Rs.

The following Jio phone feature should be equipped with a 2.4-inch display, while the camera employs a dual language down keyboard.

In addition, the live images show that the device is equipped with a dedicated flashlight and next to which are the menu buttons and the back and call buttons. Everything is on the front of the unit.

On the back, the phone has a 2 megapixel camera is similar to the Nokia 3310 (2017).

The leak shows that Jio’s 4G VoLTE handset will come with 512MB of RAM along with 4GB of internal storage, which can be extendable up to 128GB via a microSD card.

There are no details about the processor inside the device. However, since it supports 4G, it is likely that it could use a Qualcomm processor input.

For example, this could be the Snapdragon 205 SoC, a Qualcomm processor made specifically for very cheap 4G mobile VoIP.

The phone features VoLTE 4G functionality will support SIM only Jio dependency, which clearly shows that this handset is designed to increase the subscriber base of Jio.

The company wants people to buy your phone, then use the Jio network. However, TelecomTalk also reports that the phone has features can be equipped with two SIM card slots. One of these slots accept a generic 2G SIM, while the other is for a 4G SIM card provided by Jio.

The main feature of the phone would be the device’s ability to run some applications such as Jio Jio TV, Jio Cine and others.

It is said that the device comes with a voice assistant. Live images indicate that Jio phone function can work on the KAI operating system, which is apparently a forked version of Firefox OS.

The phone has been seen with a dedicated application store called KAIOS plus, which probably indicates that the device can support applications like Facebook and WhatsApp.

Despite all that is revealed (probably) July 21 at present there are a number of reports that claim that the 4G phone will have Jio priced at Rs 500 or somewhere around it.

However, the specs and features we see also shows a phone that could be a bit more expensive.

There is no doubt that Jio subsidize the phone because its actual manufacturing cost can be around 1,500 Rs. In this context, we believe that the 4G Jio phone could have a price between Rs 500 and 1,000 Rs.

China says Kailash Mansarovar Yatra suspended because of border standoff

China says Kailash Mansarovar Yatra suspended because of border standoff

Beijing has demanded the withdrawal of Indian troops have crossed the Sikkim section of the China-India border.

China confirmed on Monday that its decision to suspend Kailash Mansarovar Yatra through Nathu La is based on the dead-end border, Xinhua said. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang demanded that India remove its border guards, which Beijing accuses Sikkim of crossing the border section between China and India.

The Chinese army Monday accused the Indian army of causing tension in the real control line by halting the construction of a highway in what claims to be China’s “sovereign territory” in the Sikkim region along the border between India and China.

Beijing has said that Indian troops had “obstructed the normal activities of the Chinese border forces in the Donglang region recently, and the Chinese side has taken counter-measures”.

“China is dedicated to the development of bilateral relations and firmly uphold its legitimate rights,” Beijing said. “China expects India to be half way, will do nothing to complicate border issues and jointly maintain the good momentum of relations.”

However, India has stated that a fight broke out between Indian Army personnel and the People’s Liberation Army during the first week of June, near the Lalten post in a region from Sokkim to La Doka, authorities in New Delhi . PLA soldiers have damaged more than two exchange bunkers on the Indian side.

Indian authorities said the clash could not be deactivated even after a meeting between the flag of the military high command on both sides. “There was a stampede and a struggle between rival troops. Our soldiers formed a human fence to deny the PLA troops to make further incursions,” said an official of The Times of India.

Similar clashes occurred in this area of ​​Sikkim for 10 days. In November 2008, Chinese forces had destroyed the bunkers of the improvised Indian army in one place.

The Mansarovar Yatra, which was reported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Sushma Swaraj June 11 was suspended on June 23 after China has responded to about 50 Indian pilgrims who would be allowed to enter it when weather and road conditions would improve . The pilgrims, who had to go to Tibet for the Nathu La Pass in Sikkim, had to return to Gangtok.

This year, seven batches of 50 pilgrims crossed each Tibet through Nathu La, and 18 batches of 60 pilgrims were scheduled to meet Kailash through the neck of Lipu Lekh in Uttarakhand, Hindustan Times reported. The Nathu La route was inaugurated in June 2015. Managed by the government of the Tibet Autonomous Region by China, hiking time is reduced.
