first_imgWest Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini doubts Andy Carroll will be going anywhere in this month’s transfer windowThe former Liverpool striker’s current contract with West Ham will expire at the end of the season after six years in London.But Carroll’s time with the Hammers has been clouded with a set of lingering injury issues that have restricted him to just 136 appearances in total.Further injury problems this season have seen Carroll make just the one start in seven league games with no goals scored at all.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…However, Pellegrini doesn’t expect the injury-hit striker to leave West Ham this month.“I don’t think so. I think Andy will stay here with us, he is an important player for our team,” said Pellegrini, according to TeamTalk.“He is just coming back from a long, long injury, and the way he is taking advantage of his minutes he will return to the player that we all know.”Carroll, along with new signing Samir Nasri, may be handed a rare start for Saturday’s FA Cup third-round game against Birmingham.last_img read more

first_imgAt an RBI function early last month, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked why India still imports paper and ink to print its currency notes, instead of making them in India. He then exhorted to make the Indian rupee truly swadeshi by using Indian ink and paper, as part of his government’s ‘Make in India’ programme.”Can we not take a pledge that from a certain date onwards the paper and ink used to print our currency are both Indian?” he asked at the function to mark the bank’s completion of 80 years.India may not be far away from making it a reality, because a Gujarat-based company apparently supplies green ink used in the printing of the US dollar, according to a report.”We believe that one of our customers is supplying green to the greenback in USA…part of the greenback ink – the green colour comes from our pigment,” Ashish N Soparkar, managing director, Meghmani Organics told NDTV.Greenback is the nickname of the US dollar and it is currently printed in denominations of $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $50, and $100.”Pigments go into colouring multiple products. It goes into the ink, it goes into the plastic, rubber, paint, everywhere wherever you see colour, colour comes from pigment,” Soparkar said.”For ink not the fountain pen ink, but the packaging ink, newspaper ink, magazine ink, poster ink. Lot of applications including security ink like currency notes, bond papers etc.,” Soparkar added.Soparkar said that the company exports half of its output to 80-85 countries. The company aims to increase revenues from the pigments business to cross Rs 500 crore in the current fiscal year from Rs 430 crore in 2014-2015.Meghmani Organics, which manufactures general agrochemicals and pigments, is listed on both the National Stock Exchange (NSE) and the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE).The company’s share price witnessed a massive gain of over 70 per cent in the last one year, rising 20 percent in the last week alone.As far as the Indian rupee is concerned, almost 80 per cent of the notes are printed on imported cotton-based paper, according to a senior RBI official.last_img read more

first_img Explore further (Phys.org)—A team of researchers from Columbia University in New York has found that all of the Marshall Islands involved in nuclear tests by the U.S. are now habitable, except for Bikini Atoll. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the team describes the reasoning for their testing, the methods they used, their results and what they believe should be done going forward. Rising seas swamp Marshall Islands As most everyone knows, the United States embarked on an ambitious nuclear arms program beginning during the closing days of World War II. Testing was done at various sites, one of which involved the northern Marshall Islands. In all the U.S. detonated 67 nuclear devices in the area between the years 1946 to 1958. To make the site ready for testing, inhabitants of the islands were moved to other islands—but now, as time has passed, those people and their descendants, wish to return. But before that can happen, the impacted islands must be deemed safe. But, the researchers with this new effort contend, the government of the Marshall Islands has been relying on outdated information. No on the ground survey of gamma radiation has been conducted over the past several decades. To remedy that situation, the team flew to the Marshal Islands and conducted gamma ray emission surveys on three of the atolls most impacted by the nuclear tests, and compared their readings with an island (Majuro Atoll) distant enough from the blast zone to be used as a control, it showed 13 millirems of radiation per year. For further illustration purposes, the team also took readings in New York’s Central Park, which showed 9 mrem/y.The researchers report that they found readings on Enewetak Atoll to be 7.6 mrem/y, and on Rongelap to be 19.8 mrem/y, both of which fall in the safe zone. Readings on Bikini Atoll, on the other hand were 184 mrem/y, which is not considered terribly dangerous, but it does exceed the minimum acceptable levels agreed upon by the U.S. and the government of Marshall Islands—also the researchers point out, more study needs to be done on Bikini Atoll to ascertain what sorts of exposure people living on the island might be exposed to, e.g. through the food they eat, before any talk of re-habitation can begin. Journal information: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences More information: Autumn S. Bordner et al. Measurement of background gamma radiation in the northern Marshall Islands, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (2016). DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1605535113AbstractWe report measurements of background gamma radiation levels on six islands in the northern Marshall Islands (Enewetak, Medren, and Runit onEnewetak Atoll; Bikini and Nam on Bikini Atoll; and Rongelap on Rongelap Atoll). Measurable excess radiation could be expected from the decay of 137Cs produced by the US nuclear testing program there from 1946 to 1958. These recordings are of relevance to safety of human habitation and resettlement. We find low levels of gamma radiation for the settled island of Enewetak [mean = 7.6 millirem/year (mrem/y) = 0.076 millisievert/year (mSv/y)], larger levels of gamma radiation for the island of Rongelap (mean = 19.8 mrem/y = 0.198 mSv/y), and relatively high gamma radiation on the island of Bikini (mean = 184 mrem/y = 1.84 mSv/y). Distributions of gamma radiation levels are provided, and hot spots are discussed. We provide interpolated maps for four islands (Enewetak, Medren, Bikini, and Rongelap), and make comparisons to control measurements performed on the island of Majuro in the southern Marshall Islands, measurements made in Central Park in New York City, and the standard agreed upon by the United States and the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) governments (100 mrem/y = 1 mSv/y). External gamma radiation levels on Bikini Island significantly exceed this standard (P = <<0.01), and external gamma radiation levels on the other islands are below the standard. To determine conclusively whether these islands are safe for habitation, radiation exposure through additional pathways such as food ingestion must be considered.center_img © 2016 Phys.org Citation: Radiation levels on Bikini Atoll found to exceed safety standard (2016, June 7) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2016-06-bikini-atoll-safety-standard.html Bikini Island, 2015.
