New lava flow advances towards Hawaii geothermal plant 27.5.2018 The Tribune
Honolulu, May 26 A broad lava flow cascaded towards a Hawaii geothermal power station on Saturday, posing a new hazard as molten rock from the erupting Kilauea volcano bulldozed relentlessly through homes and backyards. The lava was less than half a mile from the Puna Geothermal Venture (PGV), according to the US Geological Survey, having destroyed dozens of nearby houses in the past few days. Since Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano began a once-in-a-century-scale eruption May 3, authorities have shutdown the plant, removed 60,000 gallons of flammable liquid and deactivated wells that tap into steam and gas deep in the Earth’s core. Magma has drained from Kilauea’s summit lava lake and flowed around 25 miles (40 km) east underground, bursting out of about two dozen giant cracks or fissures near the plant. “The flow from fissures 21 and 7 was widening and advancing,” Janet Snyder, a spokeswoman for the County of Hawaii, said in an email on the position of lava heading northeast towards PGV at 12:30 p.m. (6:00 p.m. ...

Nicaragua protesters dig in as 8 more killed 27.5.2018 The Tribune
Managua, May 27 Hundreds of protesters dug in around Nicaragua today,  blocking roads as at least eight more people were killed in a 24-hour period. Unrest has resumed since week-long church-mediated talks between the government and opposition to quell a month of violence broke down late on Wednesday. Hundreds of demonstrators in the north, center and south of the Central American nation were blocking highways on Saturday, demanding Ortega and his wife, Vice President Rosario Murillo, stand down. Since protests began on April 18 at least 83 people have been killed and more than 860 wounded, police and rights activists say. Four people were killed on Friday, and another four by mid-day Saturday, police and family members said. Ortega, a former Sandinista guerrilla who first ruled between 1979 and 1990 before returning as president 11 years ago, had kept power by maintaining leftist rhetoric while ensuring an accommodation with powerful private industry and keeping up trade with the United States. But ...

Powerful cyclone strikes Oman, Yemen; 6 dead, 30 missing 27.5.2018 The Tribune
Salalah (Oman), May 27 A cyclone more powerful than any previously recorded in southern Oman slammed into the Gulf country and neighbouring Yemen on Saturday, deluging a major city with nearly three years’ worth of rainfall in single day. The storm killed at least six people while more than 30 remain missing, officials said. Cyclone Mekunu caused flash flooding that tore away whole roadways and submerged others in Salalah, Oman’s third-largest city, stranding drivers. Strong winds knocked over street lights and tore away roofing. Rushing waters from the rain and storm surges flooded typically dry creek beds. The holiday destination’s now-empty tourist beaches were littered with debris and foam from the churning Arabian Sea. Three people, including a 12-year-old girl, died in Oman, and another two bodies were recovered from the Yemeni island of Socotra. More than 30 people were still missing in Socotra, including Yemeni, Indian and Sudanese nationals. Yemeni officials also reported damage in the country’s ...

Uber has disabled emergency braking in self-driving cars: Here's the reason 27.5.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
Uber [UBER.UL] had disabled an emergency braking system in a self-driving vehicle that struck and killed a woman in Arizona in March even though the car had identified the need to apply the brakes, the National Transportation Safety Board said in a preliminary report released on Thursday. The report into the first fatal crash caused by a self-driving vehicle also disclosed that the modified 2017 Volvo XC90's radar systems observed the pedestrian six seconds before impact but "the self-driving system software classified the pedestrian as an unknown object, as a vehicle, and then as a bicycle with varying expectations of future travel path." At 1.3 seconds before impact, the self-driving system determined emergency braking was needed. But Uber said, according to the NTSB, that automatic emergency braking manoeuvres in the Volvo XC90 were disabled while the car was under computer control in order to "reduce the potential for erratic vehicle behaviour." The report gives new fuel to opponents in Congress who ...
