Post-Mugabe Elections: President Mnangagwa registers for national elections in Zimbabwe 14.6.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
President Emmerson Mnangagwa registered on Thursday for Zimbabwe's first national elections of the post-Mugabe era, with his main rival Nelson Chamisa hoping to rally younger voters against the generation that won independence. Western governments and investors will be closely watching the July 30 presidential and parliamentary ballots, for which monitors got clearance to deploy for the first time since 2002. Mnangagwa and Chamisa, who also signed up on Thursday, are both campaigning on a pledge to revive an economy crippled by a legacy of often violent seizures of land from white commercial farmers and a black economic empowerment drive that targeted foreign-owned businesses. Those policies were cornerstones of Robert Mugabe's near four-decade rule, which ended in November after a de facto military coup that transferred power to 75-year-old Mnangagwa, his loyal acolyte for nearly 50 years. The ruling ZANU-PF says Zimbabwe is at a critical stage of transition requiring an experienced politician like ...

Explosion at Hawaii volcano spews ash as lava flows into sea 11.6.2018 DNA: Popular News
A small explosion at the summit of Hawaii's erupting Kilauea Volcano on Sunday sent ash spewing into the air, creating a driving hazard for roads on parts of the Big Island, the US Geological Survey said. Lava fountains from a fissure in the volcano reached as high as 180 feet (55 meters) from Saturday night into Sunday, pushing flows of molten rock into the ocean, it said. "Seismic activity at the crater continues with gas explosions and ash eruptions under 10,000 feet (3,050 metres). While the eruption is never predictable, conditions appear stable for the moment," Richard Rapoza, a spokesman for Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, said in an email. The eruption, which entered its 39th day on Sunday, stands as the most destructive in the United States since at least the violent 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens in Washington state that reduced hundreds of square miles (km) to wasteland and killed nearly 60 people, according to geologist Scott Rowland, a volcanologist at the University of Hawaii at ...

Solar-powered system can harvest fresh water from air 11.6.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
Scientists have developed a system that can harvest water out of the air using just solar power, an advance ideal for people living in arid areas of the world. The prototype, developed by researchers at University of California, Berkeley in the US, can extract drinkable water every day/night cycle at very low humidity and at low cost. "It operates at ambient temperature with ambient sunlight, and with no additional energy input you can collect water in the desert. This laboratory-to-desert journey allowed us to really turn water harvesting from an interesting phenomenon into a science," said Omar Yaghi, who invented the technology underlying the harvester. The trial in Scottsdale, where the relative humidity drops from a high of 40 per cent at night to as low as 8 per cent during the day, demonstrated that the harvester should be easy to scale up by simply adding more of the water absorber, a highly porous material called a metal-organic framework (MOF). Metal-organic frameworks are solids with so many ...
