New entertainment releases this week include a documentary on how Mickey Mouse became beloved by children and adults and a slot machine for Disney’s growing entertainment empire, and Chris Hemsworth puts himself and his body on trial in National Geographic’s “Limitless.” One of Netflix’s biggest forays into family filmmaking is “Slumberland,” a $90 million fantasy adventure from “Hunger Games” director Francis Lawrence. And Fox Nation’s four-part series marking Yellowstone National Park’s 150-year history has the fitting host in “Yellowstone” star Kevin Costner.

Here’s a collection of what’s coming to TV and streaming services.

He was born Steamboat Willie in a 1928 animated short, but like many older stars he changed his name to a catchier one. It’s finally getting the documentary treatment with “Mickey: A Mouse’s Story,” which debuts Friday on, natch, Disney+. A fruit of Walt Disney’s fertile imagination, Mickey has become the beloved of children and adults alike and a mouse to Disney’s growing entertainment empire. The Mickey chipper has also proven to be an adaptable icon, as detailed in the film by director Jeff Malmberg and producer Morgan Neville (who both worked on the Fred Rogers documentary, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” ).

In “Nope,” Jordan Peele once again achieved a Hollywood rarity: an entirely original film that was also a box office success. In his third film as writer-director, following ‘Get Out’ and ‘Us’, Peele expands his dark and unsettling work into science fiction. The film, which arrives Friday on Peacock after hitting theaters this summer, is about a mysterious alien force that hovers in the clouds above a California ranch. The film reunites Peele with “Get Out” star Daniel Kaluuya, whose character runs a family business of horse wrangling with his sister (Keke Palmer). In her review, AP Film Writer Lindsey Bahr said that “No” “offers a lot to chew on, which is more than most major summer shows can promise”.

Family movies have been rare in theaters lately, but they’re proliferating on streaming services. One of Netflix’s biggest forays into the realm is “Slumberland,” a $90 million fantasy adventure from “Hunger Games” director Francis Lawrence. The film, which debuts Friday on Netflix, is about a young girl (Marlow Barkley) who enters the dream world of Slumberland, where a thug named Flip (Jason Momoa) helps her try to find her late father. It is loosely based on Winsor McCay’s early 20th century comic book stream, “Little Nemo in Slumberland”.

This image released by Apple TV+ shows Ryan Reynolds, left, and Will Ferrell in a scene from "Fiery." (Claire Folger/Apple TV+ via AP)

Holiday movies are also happily making their way onto home screens. “Spirited,” a riff on “A Christmas Carol” starring Will Ferrell and Ryan Reynolds, debuts Friday on Apple TV+. A sumptuous song-and-dance musical that transfers the Charles Dickens classic to the modern world and reimagines it from the perspective of ghosts. (Ferrell plays “Present”.) In his more measured review than humbug, Bahr said that “Spirited” “is short as a musical”, but “is still quite enjoyable”.

Chris Hemsworth, aka “Thor,” puts himself through his paces in National Geographic’s “Limitless,” as part of an effort to discover the durability of the human body and the best way to cope with aging. Accompanied by presumably nervous friends and family, Hemsworth undertakes challenges including swimming in a near-frozen Arctic fjord, climbing a 100-foot rope suspended over a canyon, and living with a simulation of what could look like his body at almost 90 years old. . Created by filmmaker Darren Aronofsky, the six-part series debuts Wednesday on Disney+.

Fox Nation's four-part series "Yellowstone: 1-50" marks the 150-year history of the magnificent park.

Fox Nation’s four-part series marking the 150-year history of beautiful Yellowstone National Park has the fitting host in Kevin Costner, star of the Paramount+ drama “Yellowstone.” In “Yellowstone: One-Fifty,” which premieres Sunday, Costner follows the path of an 1870s geological expedition to the western region that later became America’s first national park; visit Yellowstone during an inhospitable winter with temperatures of minus 40 degrees and explore the park’s thousands of years of human history.

It’s only been a year since the world descended on Glasgow for the Cop26 climate summit: when Boris Johnson hailed the ‘dead end of coal power’; when then-Chancellor Rishi Sunak outlined plans to “rewire the global financial system for net zero”; when Alok Sharma, the conference president, pleaded with delegates around the world to “protect this package” that was finally offered.

Fast forward to today, as COP27 is about to begin in Egypt, and this government’s global leadership and climate commitments are in tatters. The net zero fund center cannot be found; oil and gas licenses are handed out with abandon; the mere decision on the Cumbria coal mine has once again been delayed; Sharma and Graham Stuart, the climate minister, were removed from their posts; and Sunak, now prime minister, must have been ashamed to run for the top.

To say that this does not bode well would be an astonishing understatement. As our government has abandoned policy after target after manifesto promise, the destruction of the climate has continued apace.

Devastating floods in Pakistan have killed 1,500 people and displaced nearly eight million, leaving communities without shelter, food or water. The unbearable heat in India has seen temperatures reach 49C. And drought in the Horn of Africa – where it hasn’t rained for two years – has left 22 million people on the brink of starvation, according to the UN.

Pakistan and so many other countries are being forced to bear the apocalyptic impacts of a climate emergency caused not by their own people, but primarily by major northern emitters who continue to burn climate-destroying fossil fuels at will. Rich countries are responsible for 92% of historical excess emissions, Oxfam reports, and almost 40% of current emissions, despite being home to just 15% of the world’s population.

Corporations and wealthy individuals are also responsible. The emissions of the richest 1% are more than double those of the poorest half of humanity. Only 100 companies have been responsible for 70% of emissions since 1988. And BP’s chief executive has already made it clear that due to our energy crisis – caused in large part by our global reliance on dirty fossil fuels – the company is currently an “automatic checkout”.

And while a tiny minority blows our shared carbon budget on private jets and luxury SUVs, people in the Global South and future generations are paying the price.

[See also: Rishi Sunak’s vision for “Global Britain” is empty]

The economic costs of this loss and damage are truly staggering. Oxfam estimates suggest they could hit £580bn a year by 2030. Yet rich countries are totally failing to weigh their weight and work for anything close to the regularly promised climate justice. Recent data from the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) revealed that by 2020 we are more than $16 billion short of the (very conservative and still far from large enough) target of $100 billion in climate finance for developing countries.

We cannot have climate justice without a fair and equitable financial agreement for the countries of the South, and without compensation for the damage caused by the burning of coal, oil and gas over the past decades and centuries. It must be the polluters who pay for the damage caused.

In the UK, we have a special role to play in addressing the loss and damage to climate-vulnerable countries from our own fossil fuel extraction. We launched the industrial revolution, fueled by coal and colonialism. Now we must seize the opportunity, as COP27 begins, to act as a global broker on this critical issue and lead by example by contributing more ourselves.

A number of places have already done just that. Scotland became the first country to pledge funding last year in Glasgow. The Belgian region of Wallonia has earmarked €1 million to finance loss and damage to climate-vulnerable countries. And Denmark became the first signatory to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change to pledge $13 million in loss and damage.

We know by whom it should be funded, the question is how – and we are not short of options. One is the model proposed at Cop26 by Mia Mottley, Prime Minister of Barbados, of billions of dollars of special drawing rights (SDRs) issued by the IMF specifically to finance carbon reduction investments. Another is a frequent flyer tax, which would target wealthier individuals and corporations who travel more, and therefore contribute more to climate destruction. We could also impose a carbon tax on big polluting corporations, returning that money to households as a dividend. And there have been many calls for a wealth tax – the massive extraction of fossil fuels has not only driven us to the point of ecological destruction, but has allowed the wealthy to accumulate vast unearned wealth. , thanks to monopolies on their assets.

At the end of the day, we are not short of options for funding an appropriate loss and damage financing mechanism. What is lacking is sufficient political will to make it happen.

As Cop27 begins, the momentum builds and the pressure mounts. It’s time for wealthy countries like the UK to sit up and take notice. Climate justice cannot wait any longer.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has announced the results of its 2022 Global Passenger Survey, through which it showed that the main concerns of passengers regarding travel during the post-coronavirus period focus on convenience as well as than on simplification.

According to IATA, passengers look for convenience when planning their trip and when choosing their place of departure.

Data shows that the top priority for passengers when choosing their flight destination is proximity. This was more important than the ticket price, which only 39% of attendees said was the top priority, reports SchengenVisaInfo.com.

“Travel during COVID-19 was complex, tedious and time consuming due to government mandated travel requirements. After the pandemic, passengers want improved convenience throughout their journey. Digitization and the use of biometrics to expedite travel is key,” Nick Careen, IATA’s senior vice president of operations, safety and security, said.

The 2022 Global Passenger Survey further showed that the majority of travelers are willing to share their immigration information for more convenient processing. On the other hand, around 37% of passengers said they were discouraged from traveling to a particular destination due to immigration requirements.

“Travellers told us that barriers to travel remain. Countries with complex visa procedures lose the economic benefits these travelers bring,” Careen added.

Additionally, Careen pointed out that tourism and travel economies have flourished in countries that have dropped visa requirements.

In cases where visas are required, 66% of passengers said they want to obtain a visa online before travelling, 20% prefer to go to a consulate or embassy and 14% at the airport.

Additionally, IATA revealed that 83% of passengers said they would share their immigration information to speed up the airport arrival process.

In addition to the above, the survey showed that 44% of passengers chose check-in as their top priority for off-airport processing.

67% of passengers said they would be interested in door-to-door pick-up and delivery, while 73% said they would be interested in remote check-in options.

Additionally, 80% of passengers said they would prefer to check a piece of baggage if they could monitor it throughout the trip, and 50% said they had used or would be interested in using electronic baggage tags while traveling. ‘coming.

Based on this data, this means that passengers see the technology as essential to improving the convenience of air travel.

Witnesses claim the student was stabbed after walking into a 2am row which turned violent.

He tried to fight back after a man started hitting him with a skateboard, classmates said.

The footage apparently shows Luke rowing with a man with a skateboard and is believed to show the moments before the stabbing.

Mohammed Khan, 22, said: “It was a horrible way for such a young student to lose his life so quickly.

“The student got into an argument on his way home from a house party.

“I don’t know what happened and if he hit the guy, but he started rowing with a man with a skateboard.

“The next minute the guy started swinging the skateboard at him and hitting him in the head.”

He added that the two men exchanged punches before falling into a car and onto the road.

He added: “It was horrific and really violent – like something out of a video game.

“Then the skateboard guy stabbed him. The student staggered a bit and then fell on the road.”

Luke’s family has demanded justice for his murder.

Paying homage to him, they said, “Our hearts yearn for the loss of Luke; we are truly devastated by this tragedy. Luke was loved by so many people and he knew how much he was loved back.

“He was a second year business management student at university. He loved the freedom of living and studying as a student and loved life in Manchester.

“Luke was the youngest of three boys in our family and was a gentle giant with high hopes and dreams for the future.

“His biggest dream was to travel the world, but now Luke will never be able to fulfill that dream.

“Luke loved music, football and was a huge supporter of Liverpool Football Club, which he followed religiously from an early age.

“He had a profound impact on so many people throughout his life. He was truly one of a kind, whose presence would light up any room.

“Luke’s friends adored him too, as he adored them. They often called Luke a ‘legend’ and ‘the life and soul’ of everything he did. Everyone who met him truly loved him.

“Our lively, bubbly and beautiful boy has been taken from us and our family is now left with a void in our hearts that will never be filled.

“Justice must be served as we have lost our beautiful young Luke, who was deprived of life.

“We will continue to honor his name for as long as we are all here, and his legacy will last forever.”

Luke’s family have asked for privacy as they mourn their loss.

The Manchester Metropolitan University student was randomly attacked by an unknown person, Greater Manchester Police have confirmed.

He received CPR and was rushed to hospital, but tragically died a short time later.

Cops have launched an urgent hunt for the assailant.

“A TERRIBLE CRIME”

Detective Superintendent Neil Jones of Greater Manchester Police said at the time of the attack: “It was a terrible crime which took the life of a young man and my thoughts are with his family at this devastating time.

“I understand this will cause distress and concern to many people in Fallowfield and across Manchester more broadly, including our large student community.

“The investigation is in its early stages, but I can assure you that our officers are working around the clock and conducting thorough investigations to establish all the circumstances surrounding this incident.

“We are actively pursuing leads and will relentlessly pursue the offender to ensure he is brought to justice.

“There will be more officers on the streets of Fallowfield and surrounding areas over the next few days, carrying out high-visibility, plainclothes patrols to gather intelligence and reassure the community.

“Greater Manchester Police are running a student safety operation with our partners on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings where our officers patrol student areas at night, and these efforts will be stepped up and given additional resources.

“I hope this reassures the community and if anyone has any information about this incident or has any concerns, I urge you to speak to these officers. They are here to help and support you.”

New research shows that reservoirs of ocean methane in mid-latitude regions will not be released into the atmosphere under warming conditions. –ScienceDaily https://www.urbanartadventures.com/new-research-shows-that-reservoirs-of-ocean-methane-in-mid-latitude-regions-will-not-be-released-into-the-atmosphere-under-warming-conditions-sciencedaily/ Wed, 19 Oct 2022 21:17:11 +0000 https://www.urbanartadventures.com/new-research-shows-that-reservoirs-of-ocean-methane-in-mid-latitude-regions-will-not-be-released-into-the-atmosphere-under-warming-conditions-sciencedaily/ Deep below the ocean surface, the seabed contains large amounts of natural ice-like deposits made up of water and concentrated methane gas.

Deep below the ocean surface, the seabed contains large amounts of natural ice-like deposits made up of water and concentrated methane gas. For decades, climatologists have wondered if this reservoir of methane hydrate could “melt” and release massive amounts of methane into the ocean and atmosphere as ocean temperatures warm.

New research by scientists from the University of Rochester, the US Geological Survey and the University of California at Irvine is the first to directly show that the methane released by the breakdown of hydrates is not reaching the atmosphere.

The researchers, including John Kessler, a professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, and DongJoo Joung, a former researcher in Kessler’s lab and now an assistant professor in the Department of Oceanography at Pusan ​​National University in Korea, conducted the study. in mid-latitude regions — the subtropical and temperate zones of the Earth.

While the stability of the methane hydrate reservoir is sensitive to temperature changes, “in the mid-latitude regions where this study was conducted, we see no signature of methane hydrate being emitted to the atmosphere,” states Joung, the first author of the study published in Nature geoscience.

How Methane Hydrates Form, Stabilize, and Degrade

Locked in ice-like methane hydrates, methane has no effect on the climate. But released into the atmosphere, it acts as a powerful heat-trapping gas. Today’s atmosphere contains methane emitted by human activities – such as fossil fuel extraction and use, agriculture and landfills – and methane emitted naturally by wetlands, forest fires forest, aquatic environments, coastal areas and land seeps.

Ocean sediments are massive storehouses for ancient natural reservoirs of methane in the form of methane hydrates.

“The amount of methane trapped in gas hydrates globally is staggering,” says Joung.

Scientists have speculated that releasing even part of this reservoir could significantly worsen climate change.

Says Kessler: “Imagine a bubble in your aquarium going from the bottom of the aquarium to the top and exploding and releasing whatever was in that bubble into the air above – that was how a lot of people saw it. how breaking down hydrates could contribute to our warming world.”

Gas hydrates form where methane and water meet under conditions of high pressure and low temperature. In parts of the ocean in the temperate and subtropical mid-latitudes, hydrates can only remain stable at depths less than about 500 meters (about 1640 feet) below the sea surface. Generally, hydrates become more stable as they are below the surface of the sea.

This means that the upper limit of stability for methane hydrates – 500 meters – is a “sweet spot”. It’s most likely to melt under warming seawater temperatures, and it’s the shortest distance a bubble of “previously hydrated” methane would have to travel before reaching the atmosphere.

But even in this sweet spot, the researchers observed no evidence of hydrous methane being released into the atmosphere.

Methane Source Fingerprint

To conduct their study, the researchers measured unique isotopic “signatures” of ocean methane in seawater samples they collected at different depths in the mid-latitude regions of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. This allowed them to directly identify the origin of methane in seawater.

To make even a single measurement, they need an enormous amount of water – a single sample comprises around two thousand gallons of seawater. The researchers used a giant suction pipe to collect samples and used a new technique developed by their team that involves extracting methane from each sample. The researchers compressed the methane into cylinders which they then took back to Kessler’s lab on the River Campus to prepare for analysis.

As the researchers documented, ancient methane is being released from the seafloor. However, they found negligible amounts of this ancient methane in surface waters. They concluded, based on previous studies, that this methane gas first dissolves in deep water and then ocean microbes biodegrade the methane, turning it into carbon dioxide before it leaves the water. .

Previous work by Kessler’s group and others found that these processes are active in mid-latitude regions and that similar processes helped to mitigate the effects of methane released during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

Carbon dioxide, while also a greenhouse gas, “can be incorporated into other carbon pools in seawater,” says Kessler. Although some carbon dioxide could also be emitted into the atmosphere, this would occur on much longer time scales – thousands of years – and the warming would not be as acute.

The new study builds on previous work in Kessler’s lab, which focused on methane hydrates in the Arctic Ocean. Arctic waters are another ideal spot for studying hydrates because the cold temperature means hydrates destabilize in shallower waters, where they have a short distance to travel to reach the atmosphere.

Kessler calls these results “good news” – but news that underscores the work that still needs to be done. “This tells us that to reduce the sources of methane in the atmosphere, we can focus more of our attention on mitigating human emissions,” he says.
