  • ALBANIA: COUNTRY'S PURSUIT OF EU MEMBERSHIP

    Albanian/Nat Albania's pursuit of EU membership remains firmly on the political agenda. Even more so as it shoulders the burden of Europe's worst refugee crisis since the Second World War. In the capital Tirana you do not need to look further than the central square to recognise that Albania is still largely in the past. It is a mountainous corner of south east Europe that has yet to catch up with the modern thrust of its western counterparts. But the brand names on show and the material aspirations of the new generation are all too familiar. As yet Albania benefits from the Europe Union in terms of investment, trade and culture. Italy and Greece are its two main trading partners with Italy accounting for exports worth 140 million (m) US dollars out of a total in...

  • "A Great Read" | A Distant Prospect by Annette Young

    Australia promised a fresh start for Lucy Straughan when she and her father left war-torn Ireland. Instead, Lucy was struck with polio. This novel by Annette Young is set in Sydney in the 1920s. It an intimate journey through the eyes of a young migrant girl as she moves from bitterness and isolation to peace, joy, friendship and faith. The book is rich in history, humour, music (Lucy and her friends form a quartet), family crises and joys. Neither Lucy, nor her friends are saccarine. Nor are any of the characters stereotyped.

    (PARIS, AFP, 24 Aug 2016) - Scientists on Wednesday (24 Aug 2016) announced the discovery of an Earth-sized planet orbiting the star nearest our Sun, opening up the glittering prospect of a habitable world that may one day be explored by robots. Named Proxima b, the planet is in a “temperate” zone compatible with the presence of liquid water – a key ingredient for life. The findings, based on data collected over 16 years, were reported in the peer-reviewed journal Nature. “We have finally succeeded in showing that a small-mass planet, most likely rocky, is orbiting the star closest to our solar system,” said co-author Julien Morin, an astrophysicist at the University of Montpellier in southern France. “Proxima b would probably be the first exoplanet visited by a probe made by humans,” ...

Albanian/Nat Albania's pursuit of EU membership remains firmly on the political agenda. Even more so as it shoulders the burden of Europe's worst refugee crisis since the Second World War. In the capital Tirana you do not need to look further than the central square to recognise that Albania is still largely in the past. It is a mountainous corner of south east Europe that has yet to catch up with the modern thrust of its western counterparts. But the brand names on show and the material aspirations of the new generation are all too familiar. As yet Albania benefits from the Europe Union in terms of investment, trade and culture. Italy and Greece are its two main trading partners with Italy accounting for exports worth 140 million (m) US dollars out of a total in 1998 of 240 (m) million dollars. SOUNDBITE: (Italian) "We must invest in this country. Firstly because for us Italians Albania is very near, is a very close neighbour in terms of transport. Secondly it is the duty of Italy and other EU countries to help this country through a very difficult period." SUPER CAPTION: : Pietro Lo Gioco, Director of Filanto But full membership remains a distant prospect though investors taking advantage of perhaps Albania's most attractive resource, cheap workers, say their money is well spent. Albania's infrastructure such as roads requires extensive modernisation by EU standards. Roads from the international airport are in poor condition. But various EU sponsored projects are underway including this one 15 kilometres outside Tirana. The people themselves do not all share the political views of the ruling socialists, some do believe that the E-U will be to their advantage. VOXPOP: (Albanian) "Prosperity will come with time but if we integrate swiftly with Europe the sooner we will develop." SUPER CAPTION: Tirana resident Some believe that Albania should not automatically be entitled to E-U membership. VOXPOP: (Albanian) "If Albanians don't work they shouldn't expect anything from foreigners" SUPER CAPTION: Tirana resident The ambitions of many suggest migration abroad in search of better opportunities. VOXPOP: (Albanian) "I want to get away from here as soon as possible" SUPER CAPTION: Tirana resident The Albanian President Rexhap Meidani has found himself thrust into the centre stage of European politics as leader of a country in the midst of a huge refugee crisis and possible war on its borders. British Prime Minister Tony Blair responded on Wednesday with support for the country's future role in the EU and NATO. Meidani says it is in Europe's interest to help Albania and its people. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Its a question ameliorating the level of living, standards of living and to help Albanians to live with the kind of dignity not to suffer more, because as you know Albanians have suffered too much - 50 years of dictatorship - and also they are suffering during this long period of transition" SUPER CAPTION: Rexhap Meidani, Albanian President Light industry and agriculture make up the backbone of this small Mediterranean nation. But hopes are that once the crisis is over there will be room to develop and grow its natural resources with tourism its most profitable new industry.

Codenamed 'Distant Suns' the expedition was recorded in a 12-series video log. The mission was to travel to the far side of the galaxy via the galactic core, mapping and documenting all major discoveries made along the way. Some 5 weeks later, on January 18th 3301, DSS Beagle reached a star system on the edge of the far galactic rim, 65,279 LYs from Sol. The system (CEECKIA ZQ-L C24-0) subsequently became known as 'Beagle Point'. It marked the end of the line of the Distant Suns expedition. One year later, in January 3302, the DSS Beagle is to be recommissioned and given a new mission. Codenamed 'Distant Worlds', this new expedition will task all its participants to travel a route that will roughly follow the original path taken by the Beagle last year, this time with the added task of surveying and exploring as many worlds as possible at key locations along the way.

(PARIS, AFP, 24 Aug 2016) - Scientists on Wednesday (24 Aug 2016) announced the discovery of an Earth-sized planet orbiting the star nearest our Sun, opening up the glittering prospect of a habitable world that may one day be explored by robots. Named Proxima b, the planet is in a “temperate” zone compatible with the presence of liquid water – a key ingredient for life. The findings, based on data collected over 16 years, were reported in the peer-reviewed journal Nature. “We have finally succeeded in showing that a small-mass planet, most likely rocky, is orbiting the star closest to our solar system,” said co-author Julien Morin, an astrophysicist at the University of Montpellier in southern France. “Proxima b would probably be the first exoplanet visited by a probe made by humans,” he told AFP. An exoplanet is any planet outside our Solar System. Lead author Guillem Anglada-Escude, an astronomer at Queen Mary University London, described the find as the “experience of a lifetime”. Working with European Southern Observatory telescopes in the north Chilean desert, his team used the so-called Doppler method to detect Proxima b and describe its properties. The professional star-gazers spent 60 consecutive days earlier this year looking for signs of gravitational pull on its host star, Proxima Centauri. Regular shifts in the star’s light spectrum – repeating every 11.2 days – gave a tantalising clue. They revealed that the star alternately moved towards and away from our Solar System at the pace of a leisurely stroll, about 5kmh. After cross-checking an inconclusive 2000-2014 dataset and eliminating other possible causes, the researchers determined that the tug of an orbiting planet was responsible for this tiny to-and-fro. “Statistically, there is no doubt,” Anglada-Escude told journalists in a briefing. “We have found a planet around Proxima Centauri.” Proxima b is a mere four light years from the Solar System, meaning that it is essentially in our back yard on the scale of our galaxy, the Milky Way. It has a mass around 1.3 times that of Earth, and orbits about seven million kilometres from its star. A planet so near to our Sun – 21 times closer than Earth – would be an unlivable white-hot ball of fire. But Proxima Centauri is a so-called red dwarf, meaning a star that burns at a lower temperature. As a result, the newly discovered planet is in a “Goldilocks” sweet spot: neither so hot that water evaporates, nor so cold that it freezes solid. But liquid water is not the only essential ingredient for the emergence of life. An atmosphere is also required, and on that score the researchers are still in the dark. It all depends, they say, on how Proxima b evolved as a planet. “You can come up with formation scenarios that end up with and Earth-like atmosphere, a Venus-like atmosphere” – 96 per cent carbon dioxide – “or no atmosphere at all,” said co-author Ansgar Reiners, an expert on “cold” stars at the University of Goettingen’s Institute of Astrophysics in Germany. Computer models suggest the planet’s temperature, with an atmosphere, could be “in the range of minus 30 deg C on the dark side, and 30 deg C on the light side,” Reiners told journalists. Like the Moon in relation to Earth, Proxima b is “tidally locked,” with one face always exposed to its star and the other perpetually in shadow. Emerging life forms would also have to cope with ultraviolet and X-rays bombarding Proxima b 100 times more intensely than on Earth. An atmosphere would help deflect these rays, as would a strong magnetic field. But even high doses of radiation do not preclude life, especially if we think outside the box, scientists say. “We have to be very open-minded as to what we call ‘life’,” Jean Schneider, an expert on exoplanets at the Observatoire de Paris, told AFP. Some 3,500 exoplanets have been discovered since the first confirmed sighting in 1995. Most of these distant worlds – like our own Jupiter and Neptune – are composed of gas, an inhospitable environment for life. Even the 10 per cent that do have rocky surfaces are mostly too cold or too hot to host water in liquid form. And – until today – the handful that are in a temperate zone are effectively beyond reach. Last year, for example, Nasa unveiled Kepler 452b, a planet about 60 per cent larger than Earth that could have active volcanoes, oceans, sunshine like ours, and a year lasting 385 days. But at a distance of 1,400 light-years, humankind would have little hope of reaching this Earth-twin any time soon. By comparison, Proxima b is a stone’s throw away, though still too far away for humans to visit with present-generation chemical rockets. “This is a dream for astronomers if we think about follow up observations,” said Reiners. __________________________________________________

This is the earliest known TV appearance of Christopher Hitchens (until someone unearths the mythical University Challenge lost tape from the late 1960s). At the time of this video, the 31-year-old stripling was working for the New Statesman in London, with America still but a distant prospect.
