Novel mechanism may stop tsunamis in their tracks 26.1.2017 DNA: Popular News
Devastating tsunamis could be halted before hitting the Earth's shoreline by firing deep-ocean sound waves at the oncoming mass of water, researchers have proposed. According to Usama Kadri from Cardiff University in the UK, many lives could ultimately be saved by using acoustic-gravity waves (AGWs) against tsunamis that are triggered by earthquakes, landslides and other violent geological events. AGWs are naturally occurring sounds waves that move through the deep ocean at the speed of sound and can travel thousands of metres below the surface. AGWs can measure even hundreds of kilometres in length and it is thought that certain lifeforms such as plankton, that are unable to swim against a current, rely on the waves to aid their movement, enhancing their ability to find food. Kadri proposes that if we can find a way to engineer these waves, they can be fired at an incoming tsunami and will react with the wave in such a way that reduces its amplitude or height, causing its energy to dissipate over a ...

Gibson, on a cinema rehabilitation 21.1.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The Hollywood resurrection of Mel Gibson has begun. The Oscar-winning filmmaker and actor has kept a low profile for the past decade, sheltering from the tsunami of public condemnation that descended on him following revelations of his anti-Semitic and misogynist rants. But now Gibson, 60, has emerged from the shadows with Hacksaw Ridge, a brutally violent but highly effective combat saga that earned a 10-minute standing ovation at the Venice Film Festival. The true story of a pacificist combat medic and Seventh-day Adventist Christian caught up in the inferno of the Second World War, it's the first movie Gibson has directed since the gruesome but thrilling Apocalypto in 2006, and it stands a good chance of award nominations later this year. "Well," he says, "the last 10 years have been interesting. I don't feel like this is some kind of comeback for me, I just feel like it's good. But I was always busy during that time, and I was always writing and developing stuff. Traditionally, people have not been ...
