NASA presented the process of the reduction of forests in Peru for 5 years
In addition to inspiring beautiful images, aerospace Agency of the USA showed a rather sad materials. Based on photos taken by NASA satellites, scientists have created a timelapse video that illustrates deforestation in Peru in the period from 2013 to 2018. It is reported by IFL Science. Many trees in the Peruvian forests have gone through about five generations of people, but now they are actively cut down. In just five years left naked 206 square kilometers (6%) of the Madre de Dios region in southeastern Peru.
At first glance this figure may not seem too awesome, but if deforestation continues at the same pace to the end of the century from the Peruvian forests is almost nothing left. The most affected areas, where a thriving illegal gold mining. In particular, a buffer zone next to the settlement of the indigenous tribe kocemba. As noted by NASA, deforestation intensified after the completion of the Interoceanic highway from Peru to Brazil, because now the poachers can easily get to previously inaccessible places.
The heir to the Vine app Byte start beta
Twitter shut down the application at Home of Hoffman’s Vine, in favor of the successful Chinese TikTok. It’s been a year and a half since then, as Hoffman has announced that he will reconsider the application and release it under the name V2. About it reports TechCrunch. However, it was later renamed Vine in Byte and finally sent the first 100 invitations to the closed beta. Byte will allow users to record or upload a short, looped vertical video in reverse chronological feed.
The app will have a long rise, given the huge popularity of TikTok. Its advantage may be that he alienated at least for the older audience, as the Chinese competitor is very popular among teenagers. Hoffman said his primary task is the correct job creators and a thorough test of that when the official launch of Byte the application has already had a certain level.
At the moment, Hoffman plans to continue beta testing, adding and subtracting functions for the fire test, to see what works and what doesn’t. The current version is just the footage with no downloads and a tape with likes and comments, but without the account. The next iteration from its team of seven will test the video downloads and profiles.
The United States accused Russia of manipulating the GPS signals in the Black sea
In the United States said that the Russian Federation is actively using technology disorientation GPS navigation in the Crimea and the Black sea. About said a non-governmental organization C4ADS in its report. From February 2016, the disorientation of a satellite navigation system GPS/GNSS was used by Russia about 10 thousand times. According to the President of the Fund for the protection of navigation, Dane Howard, the beginning of the study documented evidence of disorientation GPS, transferred to the captain of a merchant vessel in the Black sea.
“I served in the marine navigation controller USA and for years have heard various reports of odd things that have occurred in Russian waters with a GPS. However, we did not have reliable data until 2017, when the captain of a merchant ship in the Black sea sent us the proof – a photo of your computer screen and radar, where his GPS indicated that he is not in the sea, and forty kilometers to the local airport. When we started investigating, we found that this happened with about 20 other ships and many others in the Black sea. Therefore, the year 2017 was the first time we were able to say clearly that something is happening,” he said.
In the research process was discovered more than 9 thousand incidents when ships passing in the sea near Russian waters, was seen on radar its location to nearby airports. Similar cases have been recorded not only in the Black sea, and not far from Vladivostok, Murmansk and St. Petersburg.
For evidence of Russian interference in operation of navigation systems, researchers with the University of Texas conducted a science experiment on the International space station. “We tested the stations in a certain region and to determine the quality of the signal coming from these regions, and it eventually gave us radiopages “spoofing”. This applies mainly to systems of government residences in the Crimea”, – reported the analysts.
Meanwhile, the disorientation can be dangerous, and there were experiments that have shown that it is possible very little to change the course of a ship or machine and direct them to where there is desire, for example, in the territorial waters of another country to create an international incident. Howard said that the rules of the International telecommunication Union specifically prohibit member countries deliberately send the wrong signals. It was found that almost all cases of disorientation GNSS were recorded in the regions where the Russian secret items and secret private residence associated with representatives of the Russian government.
