Missing Argentine submarine 'running out of air' and had reported fault before vanishing

Missing Argentine submarine 'running out of air' and had reported fault before vanishingAn Argentine submarine missing in the South Atlantic is likely to be running out of air and had reported technical problems before vanishing, naval officials have said.  ARA San Juan’s last message reported a short circuit in its batteries and the vessel was ordered to return to its home. The Argentine navy quashed hopes that incomplete satellite calls detected over the weekend could have been from the vessel, but then on Monday night said it was analysing separate "noise" to see if it was the boat. Enrique Balbi, a Navy spokesman, said two of  search vessels had detected the sound and called in a US P-8 Poseidon plane to record it with sonobuoys. He later said experts determined the noise did not come from tools being banged against the hull of a submarine as was previously reported by some media. He said it likely came from a "biological" source. ARA San Juan submarine in Buenos Aires. Credit: AFP Two oceanographic ships had been dispatched to the site of the sound to send down probes, the spokesman said, adding that the analysis of the captured sound would take some three hours. Buenos Aires had been beginning to face domestic criticism of its handling of the search, with one union describing government efforts as badly coordinated and apathetic. The submarine and its crew of 44 have now been missing for five days as a growing fleet of international vessels and patrol planes brave 20ft waves and high winds to search hundreds of square miles. US Navy submarine rescue chambers have been flown to the region in the hope of bringing the crew to the surface in case the vessel can be found. Gabriel Galeazzi, a spokesman for the Argentine Navy, said the German-built diesel electric vessel had surfaced on Wednesday to report the fault. He said: “At that moment the commander was ordered to go directly to Mar de Plata. After that we lost contact.” A ship leaves a Naval base to join the search for missing submarine ARA San Juan, in Mar del Plata, Argentina Credit: a Devo Source: He suggested the fault could have affected the submarine’s navigation, but said it did have back-up systems. Although the crew has enough food, oxygen and fuel to survive about 90 days on the sea's surface, they only have enough oxygen to last for seven days if submerged. After that, the boat  would have to surface or get near the surface to replenish air supply. Seven brief satellite signals lasting only seconds were detected over the weekend, raising hopes the crew were trying to call and prompting jubilation among the waiting families. Juan Carlos Mendoza, father of Fernando Mendoza, a crew member of the missing submarine ARA San Juan, stands outside the Navel base in Mar del Plata, Argentina waiting for news Credit: AP But analysis of the low frequency signals later found they were not from the submarine. Up to 20 vessels, including the Royal Navy’s HMS Protector and HMS Clyde are joining the search. Britain has also sent an RAF C-130 aircraft and a Voyager refuelling aircraft to help it search for longer. Cdr Erik Reynolds, spokesman for the US Navy, which is coordinating the international effort, said vessels were using their sonar to hunt for the ship, though high waves are hampering efforts. Maritime patrol planes are searching for signs of oil or waste that could have been jettisoned by the crew to signal their location. Search and rescue mission for Argentinian submarine Two US Navy undersea submarine rescue vessels are on standby if needed for a rescue. The vessels can attach to the hatch of a stricken submarine at depths of up to 2,000ft and then ferry surviving crew back to the surface. "There is no good news," Juan Carlos Mendoza, father of crew member Fernando Mendoza, told local reporters. "Hopefully they have oxygen." The ARA San Juan was inaugurated in 1983, making it the newest of the three submarines in the navy's fleet. Built in Germany, it underwent maintenance in 2008 in Argentina. That maintenance included the replacement of its four diesel engines and its electric propeller engines, according to specialist publication Jane's Sentinel. ATEPSA, a union representing workers in the protection and security of aeronautics, said the case of the submarine "puts centre stage the recurring failures in state policies". It said in a statement that "the apathy in the Services of Search and Rescue, and the lack of coordination which exists in all the public bodies involved, are the faithful reflection of multiple errors which complicate the principle objective: to reach the victims in an urgent manner". The union noted workers in several airports were participating in search operations "despite the problems of communication in the oceanic sector due to lack of investment." This was "aggravated by the fact that the plant that transmits and receives all the aeronautic communications in the country does not have staff," it complained.

Americans aged 18-34 most likely to oppose assault weapons ban, poll findsThe previous national federal ban on assault weapons lapsed more than a decade ago, and Congress has not renewed it. Resistance to a ban on military-style assault weapons is strongest among millennials, according to a new Quinnipiac poll released this week. It’s a finding that experts said might be driven by the popularity of first-person shooter video games such as Call of Duty and the increasing prominence of military-style guns in the consumer market.

Squirrels could hold secret to preventing brain damage for stroke patients

Squirrels could hold secret to preventing brain damage for stroke patientsSquirrels could hold the key to helping stroke patients avoid brain damage, scientists believe. Researchers in the US have discovered that when squirrels hibernate a protective process occurs in their cells which allows their brain to function with reduced blood flow and oxygen. When they awaken the animals suffer no ill-effects despite being deprived of essential nutrients.   During an ischemic stroke the blood supply, containing sugar and oxygen, is cut off to the brain, causing cells to die, which often leads to paralysis and speech problems. Scientists from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) believe that creating a drug which could trigger the same cellular changes of hibernating squirrels could prevent that brain damage. "If we could only turn on the process hibernators appear to use to protect their brains, we could help protect the brain during a stroke and ultimately help people recover," said first author Joshua Bernstock, a graduate student at NINDS. Around 100,000 people have strokes each year in Britain, and 85 per cent will suffer ischemic strokes, with almost two thirds of the survivors leaving hospital with a disability. There 1.2 million people currently living in the UK with the after-effects from a stroke. Two thirds of people leave hospital after having a stroke with a disability  Credit: Peter DazeleyGetty Images Contributor Currently, the only way to minimize stroke-induced cell death is to remove the clot as soon as possible. But if a treatment could be quickly administered which helped the brain survive without blood and oxygen, outcomes for patients could be radically improved, experts believe. Researchers found that a cellular process called SUMOlyation goes into overdrive when squirrels hibernate, protecting their cells. They found that process could be boosted by the enzyme ebselen. When ebselen was injected into animal brain cells, they stayed alive, even when deprived of blood and oxygen. Further experiments also showed that ebselen boosted SUMOylation in the brains of healthy mice. "For decades scientists have been searching for an effective brain-protecting stroke therapy to no avail. said Dr Francesca Bosetti, program director at NINDS. “If the compound identified in this study successfully reduces tissue death and improves recovery in further experiments, it could lead to new approaches for preserving brain cells after an ischemic stroke." In numbers | Stroke Mr Bernstock said he hoped the research would encourage other scientists to look to nature to solve pressing medical problems. "As a physician-scientist, I really like to work on projects that have clear relevance for patients," he added. "I always want outcomes that can lend themselves to new therapeutics for people who are in need." The research was published in The FASEB Journal, the journal of the Foundation of American Societies for Experimental Biology.

Two months after Hurricane Maria, thousands march in Washington for Puerto Rico

Two months after Hurricane Maria, thousands march in Washington for Puerto RicoIt's been two months since Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, leaving the island without power and causing the longest blackout in United States history. Thousands of protesters marched throughout Washington D.C. on Sunday in the "Unity March for Puerto Rico," a show of support for ongoing disaster relief efforts after the U.S. territory was decimated by Maria, a Category 4 storm. SEE ALSO: Trump says Puerto Rico hurricane response was a '10' but these numbers prove otherwise The march, attended by numerous politicians, as well as celebrities like Lin-Manuel Miranda and chef José Andres, led protesters from the Capitol Building to the Lincoln Memorial.

Power lines that have been restored remain unstable, causing daily, widespread outages. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers estimates that 75 percent of the island will have power by the end of January.  According to their website, Unity March organizers are calling for more aid in rebuilding Puerto Rico, the permanent repeal of the Jones Act (which slows down recovery efforts), and the cancellation of Puerto Rico's more than $70 billion in debt. President Donald Trump has previously criticized Puerto Rico's debt, suggesting that it could limit the aid it receives. In fact, that criticism is one of the factors that prompted Sunday's march.

Hunter mutilated in bear attack has face rebuilt in pioneering surgery 

Hunter mutilated in bear attack has face rebuilt in pioneering surgery A hunter left disfigured from a near-fatal bear attack has had his face rebuilt after undergoing months of surgeries. Lee Brooke’s nose and moustache were “ripped off” his face during the grizzly attack during a hunting trip in Wyoming in October last year. The 60-year-old told FOX 31 he came across an elk he had shot the day before on his excursion, but quickly realised a bear had already claimed the kill. He turned to leave when the bear suddenly attacked, knocking him unconscious. When he woke he found the aggressive animal standing over him. Mr Brooke recalled the shock of seeing his “nose and moustache laid out on the ground”, adding: “Now I knew what was wrong with my face.” He underwent months of surgeries  Credit: FOX31 Denver (KDVR-TV) He explained: “I felt her sniffing my cheek. I felt her whiskers. “I should’ve bled to death right there. I should’ve at least drowned on my blood.” With blood in his eyes blurring his vision, he managed to reach for a steak knife in his pocket, later joking: “I don’t know that I would have been brave enough to stab her if I could see her. “I had to lean in to stab her in the head. So I was [that] close to her nose.” He spent around an hour alone in the woods before help arrived, recalling: “I said ‘Lord I could do with a little help about now!’” His brother-in-law, George Neal, eventually found him and remembered seeing Lee’s torn-off nose and upper lip on the ground. He grabbed the body parts and stuffed them in Lee's pocket before calling 911. He said the bear “ripped his face right off”. A wild bear (not pictured) attacked him in Wyoming Credit: AP Mr Brooke underwent months of reconstructive surgery at the Swedish Medical Center’s Burn and Reconstructive Unit in Colorado. Dr Benson Pulikkottil and Dr Lily Daniali removed a fibula and a flap of skin from his leg, then used the bone and skin to rebuild his face. Doctors will eventually reconstruct his nose, possibly even using a part of his own nose they managed to preserve. “They were so confident and compassionate and communicated really well back and forth,” said Mr Brooke. “Everybody was phenomenal. They built me up and never let me down. They’re the best of the best.” Woman’s yoga session interrupted by bear licking her neck

U.S. general sets two-year goal for driving back Afghan TalibanBy Phil Stewart and Idrees Ali WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The top U.S. general in Afghanistan said on Monday he believes he could help Afghan forces drive back the Taliban enough to control at least 80 percent of the country within two years, compared with about two-thirds today. General John Nicholson, citing counter-insurgency doctrine, said gaining 80 percent control of the country would represent a turning point in the 16-year-old conflict, which has become the longest U.S war. "This we believe is the critical mass necessary to drive the enemy to irrelevance, meaning they're living in these remote outlying areas, or they reconcile, or they die," Nicholson told a Pentagon news briefing via video conference from Afghanistan.

Rare white moose saved from hunters in Sweden after police u-turn

Rare white moose saved from hunters in Sweden after police u-turnA rare white moose’s life has been saved in Sweden after a decision to allow hunters to kill it was overturned. The magnificent moose, named Ferdinand, gained worldwide media attention in August after local politician Hans Nilsson captured him swimming on camera in Värmland, western Sweden. “It was an awesome moment being alone with this incredible animal. Having had that experience, I could not believe that someone would to kill him,” he told The Telegraph.  The elk became a potential target for hunters after police blamed the animal for an attack on a jogger on 6 November. A rare white moose has been saved from hunters in Sweden Credit: Hans Nilsson  “The moose has had two turbulent weeks. It started with a young woman who was out jogging with two dogs attached to a leash around her waist,” Mr Nilsson says. “When they met the moose, the dogs began barking. The moose wanted to defend himself and attacked the dogs. The woman fell to the ground and dislocated her shoulder.” In response to the incident, police “decided to allow local hunters to shoot the moose, claiming that it was a danger to people,” he explains. Mr Nilsson started a petition to protect the moose and it gained more than 14,000 signatures in just a few days. “I was very upset since I knew it is a harmless animal,” he adds. “Luckily, none of the local hunters wanted to kill it.” The nature photographer said the police reversed their decision due to the backlash: “The moose is no longer considered dangerous to humans. The moose is safe and can continue to live in his habitat in western Värmland. “Out of 400, 000 moose in Sweden, maybe 100 of them are white,” he adds. “Most of them live in this area. They are not albino. They have a genetic defect called leucism.

Merkel signals readiness for new election after coalition talks collapse

Merkel signals readiness for new election after coalition talks collapseBy Paul Carrel and Gernot Heller BERLIN (Reuters) - Chancellor Angela Merkel said she would prefer a new election to ruling with a minority after talks on forming a three-way coalition failed overnight, but Germany's president told parties they owed it to voters to try to form a government. The failure of exploratory coalition talks involving her conservative bloc, the liberal pro-business Free Democrats (FDP) and environmentalist Greens raises the prospect of a new election and casts doubt about her future after 12 years in power. Merkel, 63, said she was sceptical about ruling in a minority government, telling ARD television: "My point of view is that new elections would be the better path." Her plans did not include being chancellor in a minority government, she said after meeting President Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
