Editors Corner

Are you aware that there is a new ordinance that is about to be implemented in Thurston County, Washington that could affect all rural residents? I would encourage everyone in the rural Thurston County area to read about this ordinance and submit a comment before the deadline of October 3rd. Click here

On a different subject, have you heard of bioactive glass? Bioactive glass is a special type of glass that, when used as an implant material, can help the human body to repair or replace damaged bone. Apparently dentists may soon be using it as filling material. This would help a damaged tooth to repair itself. Click here

Speaking of damage, typhoons can be quite damaging but Japanese engineers have invented a way to harness that great and destructive power with a typhoon turbine power generator. This generator could apparently power Japan for 50 years with the energy from just one typhoon. Click here

There's more but I will leave the rest for you to discover and enjoy.
Have a wonderful week.

Dozens missing after Typhoon Megi triggers major landslide in China (VIDEO)
Chinese news outlets are reporting that around 30 people are missing after Typhoon Megi struck the east of the country on Wednesday, less than a day after battering nearby Taiwan. The typhoon made landfall at Quanzhou city in Fujian province in the early hours of Wednesday morning bringing winds of up to 118km per hour, China Central Television (CCTV) reports. Heavy rainfall and powerful winds were widespread in the southeast of the country. The treacherous conditions triggered landslides in Secun village, Zhejiang on Wednesday evening, destroying more than 20 houses and leaving at least 27 people missing, according to Xinhua news agency. At least four people were killed and more than 500 injured when the typhoon barreled through northeastern Taiwan on Tuesday. Almost 4 million homes were left without electricity and nearly 300,000 houses were without water, Taiwan's Central News Agency said. Megi is the 17th typhoon this year and it comes less than three weeks after Super Typhoon Meranti wrecked havoc in the Philippines, Taiwan and China.

Iceland turns off city lights for spectacular Northern Lights show (PHOTOS, VIDEOS)
Street and home lighting were turned off in the Icelandic capital, Reykjavik, for one hour to allow the world renowned Northern Lights spectacle to be viewed in all its glory. The lights went out in selected parts of the city on Wednesday night and residents were asked to keep their homes in the dark between 10pm and 11pm to facilitate a clearer view of the spectacular natural phenomenon. Needless to say, there are some risks to having a city-wide blackout and the Reykjavik City Council urged motorists in darkened areas to drive with particular caution. Tourists and locals snapped awe-inspiring photos and videos of the dancing green-lit sky stretching across the capital. The predicted combination of clear skies and high Aurora Borealis activity meant those who had traveled from all over the world to catch a glimpse of the celestial activity were in for envious views of the famously unpredictable event. This isn’t the first time the city council have authorized a temporary blackout to aide Northern Lights spectators. The last time a forecast of peak viewing conditions prompted a city-wide outage was back in 2013.

‘China’s Dead Sea’ turns blood red (PHOTOS,VIDEO)
The red-hued Yuncheng Salt Lake, also known as “China’s Dead Sea”, has recently become a popular destination for thousands of fascinated tourists. The ancient salt lake, which is 500 million years old and covers 120 square kilometers, isn’t, in fact, a crime scene, but rather the natural result of algae in the water. A rise in temperature and light intensity caused organisms called dunaliella salinas to recently turn red. While it certainly looks unusual, the phenomenon has been seen in France, the US, Turkey and more recently, Iran . “In the marine environment, Dunaliella salina appears green,” said Mohammad Tourian, a scientist at the University of Stuttgart, of Iran’s Lake Urmia that suddenly turned deep red in July. “However, in conditions of high salinity and light intensity, the micro-algae turns red due to the production of protective carotenoids in the cells.” Aside from it’s blood-like colour, the salty water means people can easily float on its surface, earning the lake the name: “China’s Dead Sea”.

Storm chasers: the typhoon turbine that could power Japan for 50 years
"Typhoons are normally nothing but a disaster," says Atsushi Shimizu. But that's not the case for this Japanese engineer, who believes these violent forces of nature could solve Japan's green energy problem. Shimizu has invented the world's first typhoon turbine. A robust, egg beater-shaped wind turbine, designed not only to withstand the incredible force of a tropical cyclone, but also to harness it. A mature typhoon produces a level of kinetic energy "equivalent to about half the world-wide electrical generating capacity," according to the Atlantic Oceanographic & Meteorological Laboratory. The energy from one typhoon, says Shimizu, could power Japan for 50 years.

End of an era
Before the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in March, 2011, nuclear power was expected to account for 60% of Japan's primary energy by 2100. But the devastating earthquake and tsunami, which killed 19,000 people, also caused three nuclear meltdowns and derailed that plan.

Google Translate just got better: AI-powered software is now almost as good at translating Chinese as humans
If you have ever tried to decipher a foreign document using Google Translate, you might be aware of that unique feeling of part-frustration, part-amusement that comes when there is clearly something wrong with the result. Although they are only ever small, mistranslations do creep in, altering the overall effectiveness of the translation tool. But Google is now hoping to fix this problem, using artificial intelligence.  The Google Translate tool, which launched ten years ago, has now been updated to use a deep learning model known as neural machine translation. This is a kind of machine learning that takes inspiration from the ways neurons are connected in our brains. The Google Neural Machine Translation (GNMT) system reduces translation errors by between 55 and 85 per cent, the company says. 'This … demonstrates like never before the power of neural machine translation,' Yoshua Bengio, a computer scientist at the University of Montreal in Canada, told Science. But the company says there is still work to do.

'Brockovich' carcinogen found at unsafe levels in tap water supplies of 218mn Americans
Potentially unsafe levels of chromium-6, a carcinogenic chemical associated with environmental activist Erin Brockovich, were found in the drinking water supplies of 218 million Americans, according to an analysis of federal water samples. A recent analysis by the nonprofit Environmental Working Group (EWG) reported potentially dangerous levels of chromium-6 found in drinking water supplies across the US — Phoenix, St. Louis County, and Houston being among the highest.  EWG analyzed data from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) concerning more than 60,000 water samples taken by local utilities around the US from 2013 to 2015. More than 75 percent of the samples contained chromium-6, with drinking water supplies for about 218 million Americans containing the chemical at potentially unsafe quantities. Hexavalent chromium, or chromium-6, is the chemical at the heart of lawyer Brockovich's crusade — which later became a major motion picture — against a California power company in the 1990s. Among other uses, chromium-6 is employed in steel production and is found in coal ash, the byproduct of coal-burning power plants that is controversially stored in waste pits that have infamously leaked into US waterways at potentially great peril to local residents.

Wells Fargo slammed with multiple lawsuits over fake accounts & bogus sales
Six former Wells Fargo employees filed a class action lawsuit in federal court against the bank claiming they were demoted or fired when they refused to participate in the bank’s illegal practices of opening fake accounts. The lawsuit is the just the latest of allegations surrounding fraudulent practices which have mostly revolved around the alleged creation of more than 2 million secret, unauthorized bank accounts. Plaintiffs are seeking $7.2 billion or more in damages. The federal class-action lawsuit filed in Los Angeles federal court on Monday claims that Wells Fargo violated several laws, including Dodd-Frank and the section of Sarbanes-Oxley that prohibits retaliation against whistleblowers. The suit also says the bank made employees work beyond eight hours a day without paying overtime, violating the Fair Labor Standards Act. “I expect many other law firms around the country will be bringing cases,” Jonathan Delshad, an attorney, told the Los Angeles Times. He filed the suit on behalf of employees who may have been fired or demoted over the last 10 years for refusing to engage in the bank’s illegal practices.

Antibiotic-resistant bugs in British supermarket chicken reach record levels
A food poisoning bug found in three-quarters of British supermarket chicken is showing drastically increased resistance to antibiotics, which may mean it will become harder for doctors to treat. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) tested campylobacter bacteria found in poultry. It said resistance to certain antibiotics, including a commonly used drug to treat the bug, ciprofloxacin, had more than doubled in some strains. It also found a big increase in resistance to the antibiotic nalidixic acid, with more than half of two common strains, C.jejuni and C.Coli, found to be resistant to the drug. Both antibiotics are classed as “critically important,” which means a drug is the only option or one of very few alternatives for treating human illnesses. Across the 283 samples tested by the FSA, 5 percent had developed resistance to multiple drugs. The FSA noted that 900 million chickens are produced in the UK every year, which means millions could be carrying multi-resistant-bacteria.

Fillings which REPAIR tooth decay and protect against further cavities 'will revolutionise dentistry'
Fillings which help teeth to self-repair from ongoing decay have been invented by scientists.   Hailed as a revolution in dental care, the compound - known as bioactive glass - not only blocks cavities but repairs bacterial damage.  It releases minerals such as calcium and phosphate, which the tooth uses to replace what was lost during the decay and repair itself. The technology, developed by experts at Queen Mary University of London, is set to do away with the need for mercury fillings, experts hope. Unlike existing fillings, the new compound has almost no risk of falling out. Professor Robert Hill, who helped to develop the technology at Queen Mary University of London, previously said: ‘This will change dental practice, reducing the size of cavities, repairing decay and reducing the number of secondary cavities.  'These fillings should last a lifetime.’ The filling is made from bioactive glass composites that release fluoride as well as calcium and phosphate needed to form tooth mineral.  It fills the gaps with minerals, preventing bacteria from entering tiny holes between the filling and the tooth that can lead to more cavities.
