Geoengineering: Opportunity or folly?

first_imgThe technology to shield Earth from sunrays and cut the harmful warming expected in the coming decades is so cheap and readily available that the hurdles to doing it are social, not technical, says Harvard’s David Keith, a supporter of geoengineering.Opponents say the idea would not only drain energy from efforts to address climate change’s causes, but also is loaded with unknown risks and the potential for abuse.The nascent debate over geoengineering as a solution to our accelerating climate problem was aired Monday at the Science Center. In an event co-sponsored by the Harvard University Center for the Environment and the MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, the authors of books taking opposing sides made their cases, one offering a scenario in which technology blunts the very worst of warming and buys time for other efforts to take hold, the other describing a future where the root causes of warming are ignored while weather is controlled by corporations or governments far removed from the effects.Keith, the Gordon McKay Professor of Applied Physics in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and professor of public policy at the Kennedy School, published “A Case for Climate Engineering” in September. Arguing against research efforts in geoengineering was Clive Hamilton, a professor of public ethics at Charles Sturt University in Australia and author of “Earthmasters: The Dawn of the Age of Climate Engineering,” published in February. Steven Barrett, an assistant professor of aeronautics and astronautics at MIT, moderated the discussion.Keith started by arguing that the time to begin research into geoengineering is now, so that science will have a chance to learn about potential pitfalls before the worst of warming hits.Though “geoengineering” encompasses several approaches to addressing the climate problem, Monday’s debate focused on the spraying of sulfate aerosols high in the atmosphere, a relatively inexpensive option and the one likeliest to be deployed on a large scale. The effect would mimic the global cooling power of large volcanic eruptions, which send similar chemicals into the atmosphere. The particles reflect sunrays and have been known to cause unusually cool weather — “volcanic winters” — for months or even years afterward.The effects of those winters are potentially severe. The 1991 explosion of Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines cooled global temperatures for several years, while the 1883 explosion of Krakatoa, in Indonesia, triggered record snowfall and harsh winters.The geoengineering scenario envisioned by Keith is far less dramatic. He suggested gradually ramping up sulfate releases for 50 years starting in 2020 with the aim of reducing warming from climate change by half. Around 2070, with other mitigation strategies yielding results, the program would begin winding down.At maximum, Keith said, the plan would release a million tons of sulfates into the atmosphere, about an eighth of what Mount Pinatubo released. The process would be cheap and remarkably straightforward, he said. It could be accomplished with modified versions of today’s aircraft.“All the hard problems are essentially social,” he said.Among the plan’s strengths, Keith said, is that it addresses the lag between cutting carbon emissions and the removal of carbon from the atmosphere by natural processes.Though the techniques involved in geoengineering have been known for some time, the issue has been taboo, Keith said, because of worries that it might discourage work on the underlying causes of climate change. Now is the time, he said, to lift the taboo and initiate a research program — publicly funded to minimize corporate influence, and collaborative to incorporate diverse views.Hamilton countered: Regardless of the intent of research, it would draw commercial interests. Once established, those interests would lobby to use the technology that was developed. Researchers on the project would also be a concern, he said, drawing comparisons to the scientists who gave the world nuclear weapons in World War II. Some spent the rest of their lives trying to control what they helped create; others continued to support the development of nuclear bombs as a route to gaining power and influence.“Which paths will geoengineering advocates take?” Hamilton asked.Even if governments could keep control over the technology, Hamilton said, the deployment of geoengineering — with the potential to trigger droughts and flooding — would lead to the troubling issue of climate being controlled remotely, with scant concern for on-the-ground consequences.Also, Hamilton said, the claims around geoengineering make it attractive to opponents of the painful measures needed to cut carbon dioxide emissions, including fossil-fuel giants such as Exxon Mobil and Royal Dutch Shell. He pointed out that N. Murray Edwards, the billionaire mogul mining Canada’s oil sands, recently invested in Keith’s geoengineering startup, Carbon Engineering.These issues, said Hamilton, all but guarantee that geoengineering-based solutions to climate change would not be guided by the best intentions and research. Rather, they would be the intensely political, with powerful interests supporting development and deployment in order to protect business in fossil fuels.Keith said there is nothing sinister about Edwards investing in his company, which he sees as Edwards “hedging his bets” in the climate debate, in case fossil fuels prove a bad investment. He acknowledged that the technology might be attractive to a fossil fuel company, but said he doesn’t think the technology alone would generate a lot of commercial interest, because it would generate little profit yet carry high risk.“There are many cases where we can do a good job of limiting environmental impacts by manipulation [of the environment], and cases where we’ve done that already. The most grandiose [way to describe it] would be to say this is a version of restoration ecology on a planetary scale,” Keith said.last_img read more

Service time, and the living is easy

first_img To do good in the world Related Harvard’s new leader tells audience he’ll be a vocal advocate for public service, higher education President Bacow goes to Washington Starting this summer, incoming first-year students will have the opportunity to participate in the inaugural Service Starts with Summer Program (3SP), a new initiative launched by Harvard College through the Phillips Brooks House to encourage students to engage in public service in their respective hometowns. Officially announced during the annual Visitas festivities (April 26–29), 3SP will also connect first-years with pathways to explore public service opportunities at Harvard.“We are so excited to announce the first of what we hope will be many years of the Service Starts with Summer Program,” said Interim Dean of Public Service Sheila Thimba. “This is an opportunity for students to contribute to their home community while creating connections with their new community here at Harvard at the same time.”All committed first-year students will be invited to participate in programming led by civically minded faculty, staff, and student leaders. A select number of students who commit giving 100 hours to a community service project over at least five weeks in their hometowns will be awarded a $1,500 stipend upon completing their work.President Larry Bacow praised the program as an example of how the University can be an engine for expanding public-service opportunities for students.“Harvard College admits individuals of extraordinary talent and promise, and I am delighted that members of the Class of 2023 will have the opportunity to serve their home communities before starting their Harvard education,” Bacow said. “We hope they will discover their own potential to work with others to strengthen their communities and make a difference in the world — powerful lessons that will shape their perspectives as well as their aspirations.”3SP launches with the support of faculty, staff, and current College undergraduates who have been working diligently through the spring to develop stronger pathways for incoming students to participate in public service.Kevin Ballen, a current first-year living at Holworthy Hall, has been actively engaged in creating the program since January.“This program is an incredible opportunity to really establish Harvard College as a school for public service,” Ballen said. “One of the most meaningful components of this program is its hometown focus. On campus, students — including myself — are so excited about exploring new places in their summers, during breaks, and after graduation. The emphasis on serving at home pushes us to think about how we can use our Harvard education and all it comes with to strengthen our roots.” Danoff Dean Rakesh Khurana said the program is a way to engage students in service opportunities from the very beginning of their time at Harvard.“The question we asked ourselves is, ‘How do we infuse our mission of educating citizens and citizen-leaders for our society right from the start?’” Khurana said. “And thanks to the terrific effort of the team at Phillips Brooks House we’ve been able to craft a pilot program to begin to answer this question. We’re really hoping that this is just the beginning of these students’ journey on service, and we continue to implement pathways to service for students when they arrive on campus. We want to energize students to build service into their own life and into whatever it is they do post-Harvard.”Incoming students who are interested in participating in 3SP are asked to complete an application by May 31 (the application will be available on May 3). Alumni discuss pathways to public service work in advance of Public Interested Conference last_img read more

Money 2020: Dell and Blockchain

first_imgThe Money 2020 conference is in full swing this week, and it is difficult to find a technology more hyped at the event than Blockchain. It promises everything from transforming the banking system to being the “Internet v2.0”.The biggest value of blockchain isn’t in what it is, but in what it enables. One quote that explains this well comes from Mark Buitenhek, the Global Head of Transactions Services @ ING: “Blockchain is not the thing. It’s the thing that enables the thing”. We agree with this perspective. Every encounter with a customer or company across all industries yields the following two key truths:The industry is looking at blockchain to help them optimize and transform themselves and their business processes so that they can outperform their competition;Blockchain is only useful if it is considered as part of a larger ecosystem.Blockchain and distributed ledger technology is transforming the way companies look to address business goals and objectives moving forward. This technology sits at the intersection of a variety of ancillary systems, and it is that ecosystem, when properly constructed, that will allow businesses to achieve their goals or objectives for this technology. As companies look to incorporate blockchain technology into their enterprise class production environments, there are many pieces to consider.Figure 1: The pinwheel of consideration for BlockchainThe figure above shows an example of some of the pieces that are part of that ecosystem.  Each element is fully explained here. Taking all of these elements into consideration is paramount to the success of a blockchain implementation. However, the first step in a blockchain engagement, should be the determination of whether blockchain is the right technology for the business problem or objective being addressed. Making that decision is the first step to a successful blockchain or distributed ledger implementation.Dell EMC has developed a set of services to assist our customers in validating their blockchain use cases. Combined with business analysis, and using a sprint-based approach, we work to identify and qualify blockchain use cases in the following areasOn-PremiseMany use cases require blockchain to run on premise. The blockchain implementation will not live in a vacuum but must co-exist with existing server/network/storage infrastructure. This will require new services that assist in the design and architecture of functional solutions. Infrastructure includes servers and HCI with GPUs for extremely fast mining on Ethereum, servers and HCI with huge core counts to power Hyperledger chaincodes, and massive object stores to refer to off-chain data assets.Off-PremiseOther companies, however, do not want the ownership and governance responsibility that comes with implementing a blockchain in-house. For these companies our service can steer the conversation towards our sister company Virtustream. Virtustream is exploring governance use cases for Secure Enterprise Ledgers.ApplicationNewly designed blockchain applications that leverage and interact with blockchain back-ends will be cloud native in nature. Pivotal offers PaaS-based on premise or hybrid solutions focused on simplifying the deployment and management of cloud native applications. Offerings like NHC (Native Hybrid Cloud) or PKS, enable deployment in seconds, and allow developers to focus on the business logic code, versus all the components surrounding their applications.Enterprise-Class BlockchainEnterprise blockchain deployments are still in their infancy, and many businesses will need help deciphering the rapidly evolving landscape. The Dell EMC service can design around any blockchain, but no implementation can deliver a better enterprise-class blockchain than VMware. VMware’s blockchain research is realizing the advantages of a true enterprise class blockchain: scale, security, performance, and fault tolerance.Together with the power of all the companies under the Dell Technologies umbrella, the Dell EMC blockchain service is well positioned to take our customers from start to finish in their mission to transform their business with blockchain technology.  Stop by the Pivotal and VMware booth at Money 2020 to hear more about the Dell Technologies blockchain vision.last_img read more

Summer Check List

first_imgI asked one of my neighbors how his summer was going and he gave me a funny look. “Is it summer?” he asked. He doesn’t have any kids, so he spends all of his free time riding bikes and playing disc golf. Summer is just a continuation of his life from the other nine months out of the year. Maybe it’s a little warmer, but his life doesn’t change with the seasons. It’s still full of bike rides and rounds of disc golf, just like fall, winter and spring. The thing about when you have kids, on the other hand, is that you live intensely by the seasons. Summer is a three-month break where you try to cram in an ass-load of outdoor adventure to make up for the nine months that you’re tied to a school schedule and weekends full of soccer games. As with all aspects of parenting, it’s both a blessing and a curse. Like most parents, I enter each summer full of hope and ideas about backyard campouts, backpacking trips, epic bike rides…In my mind, the summer break will be a three-month-long version of summer camp where the whole family will have daily adventures and our kids will learn practical wilderness skills and life lessons. Each day will end with S’mores and a fireside chat about those life lessons. Fade to black. In reality, there’s a lot of Netflix binging and sleeping late. We do our best, but every year, summer seems to just slip by. While my kids did eat S’mores several times over the last few months, I’m not sure that they learned any life lessons. We had plenty of bike rides, but would I call any of them epic? I tried a backyard campout one night, but as we were settling down in the tent, my daughter asked, “why don’t we just sleep inside? In our own beds?” It’s tough to argue with that logic. In a mad dash to rectify our ill-spent summer, I took the last couple of weeks to systematically knock out summerish adventures. Diving from a dock into a cold mountain lake? Check. Surfing at the beach? Check. Epic bike ride filled with swimming holes and ice cream? Check. Maybe the greatest accomplishment of the summer was finding a new river to tube which comes complete with a rope swing. It was a beauty of a swing; based on the condition of the rope, I’m estimating it was hung maybe 30 years ago, but obsessively maintained by locals who have reinforced the original rope with frayed pieces of other ropes. Watching my son work up the courage to launch off of this dangling lawsuit into a (sort of) deep, cold pool was definitely the crowning accomplishment of the summer. And it’s all he’s talked about since. Every once in a while, he’ll casually drop a hint that he wants to go back to the rope swing. “Remember that river? Where we tubed? With the rope on the tree?” He’ll ask while eating his chocolate chip waffles, or shooting baskets, or building Legos. “We should do that more often.” It’s tough to argue with that logic.last_img read more

Peru Reiterates Commitment to Put an End to Shining Path

first_img The Peruvian government is ready to put an end to the remnants of the Shining Path guerrilla group and its alliances with drug cartels, Peruvian Prime Minister Salomón Lerner affirmed on October 24, at the start of a working visit to the United States. “President Ollanta Humala’s administration aspires to eliminate the Shining Path remnants that are active in the area of the VRAE (Apurimac and Ene River Valley), since they are in a pernicious alliance with international drug cartels,” Lerner declared upon meeting with U.S. Under Secretary of Defense Michèle Flournoy, according to the Peruvian embassy. Flournoy supported the anti-drug policy Lerner presented on his first visit to Washington, D.C., as prime minister, the embassy added in its statement, without comment by the Pentagon. The VRAE, located in the country’s southeast, in the Amazon region, is considered Peru’s chief cocaine-producing region, and drug-trafficking gangs operate there along with Shining Path, a Maoist guerrilla group. Peru expects to present a new anti-drug strategy soon, and on this visit, Lerner hopes to acquire U.S. support. The Peruvian government has every right to reformulate its own strategic plans, the assistant secretary of state for the fight against drugs, William Brownfield, affirmed, according to another statement by the embassy. Cocaine production in Peru has grown to surpass that in Colombia for the first time in a decade, according to a recent report by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). Although Peru has around 53,000 hectares producing coca, compared to 100,000 in Colombia, the variety grown in Peru produces around 325 tons of pure cocaine a year, compared to 270 in Colombia, according to the DEA in a report delivered to Congress last week. During his visit, Lerner plans various meetings with other high-ranking U.S. Government officials. By Dialogo October 26, 2011last_img read more

Paraguayan Armed Forces Assist Civilians Impacted by ‘El Niño’ Floods

first_imgBy Dialogo January 22, 2016 “The Armed Forces are the institutions that have the most personnel ready to carry out the logistical measures and take prompt action when these catastrophes occur,” Col. Mieres stated. “In less than 24 hours, we were in a position to fulfill the aid mission assigned to us by the state.” From December 25th-January 8th, service members from the Army, FAP, Navy, and the Logistics Command – in conjunction with the National Emergency Department (SEN, for its Spanish acronym) – launched intensive, integrated Military operations. Meanwhile, the Navy deployed 45 transport vehicles, including 25-, 40-, and 90 horsepower speedboats, R-5 patrol boats, and trucks. The Navy Command provided free medical attention on board P-05 ship Itaipu, which was deployed to the city of Alberdi so crew members could respond quickly to emergencies in the region. A team of Marine divers performed plumbing repairs on the potable water system that was damaged by the floods in the district of Nanawa. They also checked the containment walls in the cities of Pilar and Alberdi, south of the Paraguayan capital of Asunción. The Armed Forces were ready to respond to the crisis, as preparation for an emergency or a disaster is a crucial component of an effective response. Members of the Paraguayan Armed Forces “receive training from partner nations, such as the United States, Colombia, Peru, and Chile, because at the end we do not need to discard the new threat to the world posed by climate change to bring humanitarian aid to persons domestically or internationally,” Col. Mieres added. Paraguay’s Army, Navy, and Air Force (FAP) have responded to the severe flooding nationwide by providing humanitarian aid to affected communities, including the city of Alberdi, which has been turned into an island only accessible by air or water. Extreme flooding When the Paraguay River’s water levels began to rise quickly in December, the Armed Forces deployed 400 service members throughout the country to help civilians affected by the flooding. On December 25th, President Horacio Cartes declared a nationwide state of emergency. International assistance The Armed Forces were joined by other governmental agencies in responding to the flooding crisis. For example, the Ministry of Public Works and Communication, the National Electricity Administration, and the Paraguayan Sanitation Services Corporation, as well as the affected municipalities and local governments, conducted their own humanitarian efforts. Each branch of the Military participated in the emergency response. The FAP Air Group and Special Transport Air Group completed 373 flight hours helping civilians affected by the flooding, according to the Armed Forces. FAP service members carried out 161 missions aboard helicopters and C-208B and C-206 aircraft as they evacuated civilians and transported food, medical supplies, and plastic tents. “The funds allocated by UNPD will support efforts to coordinate the work led by SEN with its humanitarian partners – international cooperation – with a view to organizing the actions and involvement of the central and local actors, in addition to providing support for the affected families’ recovery process,” according to the SEN. This partnership is something very important for the legal development of the Amazon, which hosts practically our whole world’s ecosystems. This Amazon does not belong to only Brazil but just as well to all neighboring Countries. Thence comes everyone’s concerns about preserving all of its riches…center_img On January 15th, President Cartes instructed service members to intensify all of their efforts to assist flood victims. “When the civilian population needs help, the Armed Forces become the populace’s right arm,” Col. Mieres said. “The Armed Forces are prepared to face catastrophic contingencies: strong, tornado level winds; heavy rains; severe floods; and prolonged droughts. These are the new challenges from natural disasters.” Although the rains were not as strong in the middle of January, the Armed Forces remain vigilant. “In spite of the pause in the rains during the second week of January, the emergency remains,” Col. Mieres added. “There are latent risks that could be caused by a potential break in the containment wall. The Armed Forces are ready and prepared for any event that could happen.” Rapid deployment At the end of December, the Paraguay River’s water level approached 10 meters. “The speed of the water is impressive,” Col. Mieres said. “The floods this year exceeded the statistics on record for the river’s level.” In December and January, heavy rains caused floods in Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina, and southern Brazil. Since mid-2015, meteorologists have warned that the El Niño phenomenon could bring unusually wet weather to these countries. Army units such as the First Infantry Division, “Aca Caraya” 4th Cavalry Regiment, Infantry School, Second Army Corps, and the Second Cavalry Division provided medical treatment and other assistance to 15,399 people. Meanwhile, the Army Headquarters Command, the Communications Command, Corps of Engineers, Military Educational Institutions Command, Army Officer Advanced Studies School, and the Peacekeeping Operations Training Institute are all engaging in humanitarian efforts. Partner nations also stepped up to help Paraguayans impacted by the flooding. On January 13th, the Peruvian government donated more than 15,900 kilograms of food. The aid arrived on a Military plane and was delivered to the SEN before it was distributed to the affected population. Paraguayan Minister of Foreign Affairs Eladio Loizaga expressed gratitude on behalf of President Cartes for Peru’s gesture of solidarity, acknowledging that Peruvians were also suffering from the El Niño phenomenon’s effects. “Paraguay has been one of the hardest-hit countries,” explained Colonel Jorge Mieres, spokesperson for the Paraguayan Armed Forces, in an interview with Diálogo. “The impact of El Niño, on top of the unusually heavy rainy season since November, has left 80,000 persons displaced at the beginning of 2016.” The United States Agency for International Development, Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance, gave SEN 5,000 zinc roofs – collectively worth about $50,000 – for families affected by the floods. The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) allocated $100,000 to assist SEN in emergencies and support the development of early recovery plans. last_img read more

2 Owego restaurants look toward the future amid pandemic

first_img“My staff, honestly they are scared,” said Cerretani. Neither eatery has had any thoughts of closing their doors, working through the struggle to create a place to go for the community. “We already wear protective gloves and masks and clothing and we are making a a set up so everyone is distant,” said Lovelass. Both eating establishments have had to deal with changes to their regular work staff. “All my employees are laid off,” said Las Chicas Taqueia’s owner Kim Cerretani. “We have seen our business get back to, not nearly what we normally do but, to get us into a point that it is close,” said Lovelass. “At the end of the day your work force has got to feel comftorable,” said Lovelass. “That’s not who we are to say hey It’s not going to work for us,” said Lovelass. “As a team we are working to make everyone feel comfortable to come back to work and Ike and I both have outdoor seating spaces,” said Cerretani. “We have two other folks who chose to stay on working,” said Lovelass. Both continue to have the same message going forward no matter how they are dishing out business. OWEGO (WBNG) – Both the Owego Kitchen and Las Chicas Taqueria have had to adjust to new conditions over the past month. center_img “Support local, go in to buy a gift card to use later,” said Lovelass. “You don’t want to shut the doors, you don’t want to go away and not be a presence, so we are working on a plan,” said Cerretani. “Just listen to your customers and your staff that is what we really have to be doing right now,” said Cerretani. Both owners agree making their staff feel comfortable is just as important as their customers. With the chance of restaurants reopening in the coming weeks, both Lovelass and Cerretani have put plans in place for when the day comes they have customers eating at their restaurants, again. “It’s myself, my wife and my son who is one of our lead line cooks,” said Owego Kitchen’s owner Ike Lovelass. With take out orders becoming the new normal, the restaurants have become used to their new way of doing business. “It’s my husband and I running the take out Monday through Thursday,” said Cerretani. “Like” Jacob Seus on Facebook and “Follow” him on Twitter. “Having to reduce the menu and the hours has been hard but we are getting through,” said Cerretani.last_img read more

“SOLD OUT” has become a symbol of one of our tourist events

first_imgHow to attract tourists to the sea in the off-season, without having anything to do with the sun and the sea. The answer is clear – quality content, such as the excellent concept of Wine & Walk in north-western Istria.A beautiful walk by the sea and the medieval walls of Novigrad, a relaxed atmosphere, tasting top wines and food and hours of enjoying the beauties of northwestern Istria marked this year’s Wine & Walk by the sea in Novigrad – the simplest description of Wine & Walk by the sea held in Novigrad this weekend .This more than successful concept is a real concrete example of how tourism develops 365 days a year, in this case in the off-season. Certainly it should be emphasized that this story has absolutely nothing to do with the sun and the sea as the main motive for coming.In the morning, more than 500 walkers gathered, who received their tasting glasses, vouchers and a map at the start and set off on a Novigrad adventure. Through a journey of 10 kilometers along the trail, they enjoyed visiting local wine cellars, walking through olive groves, vineyards, but also the medieval city walls, and on the way they were greeted by a rich gastronomic and wine offer of the best Istrian winemakers. “Despite the announcements of bad weather, all registration fees were sold out even ten days before the event. Today, 500 walkers enjoyed a walk through the Novigrad vineyards, numerous Istrian delicacies and a view of the sea, and after the hike, the fun continued on the Novigrad square where even more guests gathered.”, Said Vesna Ferenac, director of the Tourist Board of the City of Novigrad.Eight influencers from Slovenia, Italy, Austria and Croatia, who are part of this year’s Best of the Northwest campaign and introduced northwestern Istria as an Influencer Friendly Destination, joined the walkers on the trail. Great addition and extension of the story.In a couple of years, this whole story has gained a lot of Wine & Walk ambassadors, to the extent that demand is much higher than capacity and the question arises: Should I spread the event or not? Perhaps the best answer to this question are the extensions created by Istria Wine% Walk, one in the pre-season called Sweet Wine & Walk and the mentioned Wine & Walk by the sea. Which, of course, in my opinion, was the right move of the organizers, because otherwise the quality and attractive leisure that adorns this great tourist story would be lost.”SOLD OUT” has become a symbol of Wine & Walk”Sold out” is already a traditional phenomenon in north-western Istria through the excellent concept of Wine & Walk.If you are wondering why “Sold out” is synonymous with Wine & Walk, at least when we talk in our tourist frameworks, the answer is very simple? Because all tickets are sold within 24 hours and all over the internet. Visitors call and wait for the day when tickets will go on sale, without the organizers limiting ticket sales, a smart move because they keep the quality that would surely be lost in the crowd, they could talk to thousands of visitors.And yes, it is important to point out that these are mostly visitors from Slovenia, Austria and then from Croatia. So, people from Zagreb get in the car and come to Istria for the weekend, and in this case the motive for coming is Wine & Walk.Those who want development are growing, while others are whining, sticking to the status quo and saying that it is not possible. It is possible, but it takes a lot of effort and time, there is no success overnight. Quality, diverse and authentic content is the only solution to extend the tourist season. Definitely one of the best Croatian tourist stories.And my personal experience and why I consider Istria Wine & Walk one of our best tourist stories, find out in the attachment.RELATED NEWS:last_img read more
