Picture of 3 Italian Grandmas Happily Holding Migrant Kids On Their Laps Might Be the Best Photo of the Week

first_img“I hope to brighten your day with this wonderful photo,” wrote Nigris. “It portrays the ladies of a small village in the province of Benevento that spontaneously and in a completely natural way (human, I dare to say) have become the grandmothers/babysitters of the little guests of the reception center.“This is integration,” she added, “and it’s beautiful.”LOOK: California Professors Place Seesaws Across US-Mexico Border So Children Can Play TogetherThe women pictured in the photo have reportedly been identified as Aunt Nicolina, Aunt Vincenza, and Aunt Maria. Their hometown of Campoli del Monte Taburno has reportedly welcomed many refugees who have sought sanctuary after crossing the Mediterranean Sea from Africa—and these three seniors have made it very clear that they are happy to welcome many more with open arms.Since the photo has gone viral, a man who claims to be the grandson of one of the women left a nostalgic comment on the picture, saying: “To think that 37 years ago, I was on those same legs, wrapped in the same smile—and now miles away and with a few more years, I’m very happy to be able to share the same emotions with a child I don’t know, but who deserves everything and more. You are beautiful, grandmother.”Photo by Rowena De NigrisBe Sure And Share This Sweet Photo Of Humanity With Your Friends On Social Media…AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMore AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMoreThis powerful photo of three Italian grandmothers holding migrant children on their laps has been shared across the internet as a gorgeous example of humanity at its finest.The picture was originally uploaded to a closed Facebook group called “Sei di Campoli se…” which means “You’re from Campoli if…” in English.According to Rowena De Nigris, the woman who published the photo, the three grannies were taking care of the children at a welcome center for migrants in southern Italy.last_img read more

Rotor 1×13 hydraulic mountain bike group is here, plus InSpider power meter debut

first_imgIf you want the maximum range, you’ll need to go with their 1×13 setup, which means using their rear hub. Why? Because while it uses a standard HG freehub, the hubshell is slightly narrower because the 10-tooth cog hangs off the end of the freehub, and the axles are reworked to fit in Boost frames. For U.S. customers, you can have Rotor get a custom rear wheel made through with various rims.The shifting is a closed system, which has been finalized over an open system they were considering when we saw the group in April. Technically, this means it has a nearly infinite service life since contaminants can’t enter the system, but they recommend annual bleeds and fills just to be safe.The lever looks like a dual system like most other brands, but in fact is just a single push-or-push-further design. Push it a little bit to release, and push further to “pull” the derailleur onto a larger (easier) cog. The smaller secondary lever is there as an alternate thumb position that’s easier to reach when you’re way back off the saddle during aggressive descents.The back side has a reach adjust screw that lets you set the starting position for the shift lever. Retail prices are $999 for the shifter and derailleur alone, or €2,549 / £2,399 / $2,899 (Performance Kit), €1,799 / £1,699 / $2,099 (Super Light Kit) and €1,399 / £1,299 / $1,599 (Mountain Ready Kit). Check out our Sea Otter coverage for additional details and video.Rotor InSpider universal power meterThus far, Rotor has offered their InPower spindle-based power meter, which could be mixed and matched with strain gauges inside the drive side crank arm. This gave you the option of measuring left, right, or both. The new InSpider offers a third option and sits between the two in price.Since it’s only on one side, it offers virtual left side power, but has some interesting tech that helps it compensate for temperature and other fluctuations. The system uto calibrates in real time, so there are no gaps in your data (they say some spider-based power meters need will periodically restart to re-calibrate themselves mid-ride).Aero crown available for triathlon chainrings, and the design can be put on any of their current direct-mount road or mountain bike cranksets, with 1x or 2x chainrings.Claimed weight for the spider is 149g, which allows them to build up the lightest (their claim) Power Meter MTB crankset at 506g with their Kapic Carbon. Works with Super Boost, Boost and “original” mountain bike frames, but the inside does stick out slightly, so you’ll want to check around the BB area to make sure there’s adequate clearance.It’s rechargeable using a magnetic connection. They rate it at 225 hours of run time with a three hour full recharge time.Retail is $649 for the spider, plus whichever crankset you want to put it Let’s start with the mix and match options, then we’ll get into the full group. If you like the idea of a lightweight hydraulic shifting group, you could run their shifter and derailleur with a SRAM Eagle cassette. Or, if you like SRAM Eagle shifter and derailleur, the spacing is the same on Rotor’s 12-speed cassette on a SRAM Eagle drivetrain. So, you could drop a about 30g if you’re running the biggest cassette. Or you could save a lot more if you’re looking for less range and tighter gear steps…here’s all the weights: First shown last Sea Otter, the Rotor 1×13 hydraulic shifting mountain bike group is finally in production and shipping soon. Not interested in switching away from SRAM or Shimano? There’s still something here for you. They’re also offering a 1×12 group, which has the benefit of using a standard Shimano HG freehub body. And with an 11-52 cassette, you barely lose any range over the latest 12-speed groups from the big boys. What you do lose, though, is weight, and a good bit of it…last_img read more

PHMSA extends enforcement discretion for cylinders

first_imgThe PHMSA will not take enforcement action against anyone who fills a DOT-specification cylinder used to transport a Division 2.2 non-flammable gas provided the cylinder meets all requirements of the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171-180) except that the cylinder is overdue for periodic requalification by no more than 12 months.Due to the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, and rising number of coronavirus cases in most US states (particularly Arizona, California, Florida and Texas), the PHMSA has extended a notice it initially issued in April.In the extension notice, the PHMSA said, “…Many members of the medical and industrial gas industry may continue to experience difficulty in obtaining cylinders due to the increased demand for these gases or a disruption in the normal business model for cylinder exchanges. This has made it difficult for the industry to consistently obtain cylinders which can be filled in accordance with the requalification provisions…”This relief applies only to transportation by motor vehicle, and does not extend to transport by air, vessel, or railroad.last_img read more

Straw drops secret inquest plans

first_imgPlans to hold secret inquests without juries have been dropped by the government, justice secretary Jack Straw told parliament today. Straw said in a written statement that the move to introduce non-jury inquests on national security issues did not garner enough support among the parties. Clauses 11 and 12 of the Coroners and Justice Bill will be removed, he said. Straw said: ‘The government felt these changes struck a fair and proportionate balance between the interests of bereaved families, the need to protect sensitive material and judicial oversight of the whole process. ‘However, following further discussions in the House and with interested parties, it is clear the provisions still do not command the necessary cross-party support and in the circumstances the government will table amendments to remove clauses 11 and 12 from the bill.’ Paul Marsh, Law Society President, said: ‘We are delighted that this measure is to be dropped because the Law Society firmly believes that there should be open justice in the interests of the relatives of the deceased and the public.’last_img read more

Boost delivered to Congo’s mining power generation

first_imgThe shipment was transported from Chalons, France to Lumumbashi, Congo, with the help of Volga-Dnepr’s technical engineers, who designed a special platform to load the outsize cargo.The aircraft’s 30-ton (30.48-tonne) capacity crane was also used to lift the press coil safely into the cargo hold. The unit will be installed in a power station at one of Congo’s copper producing mines as part of the upgrading of its energy generation infrastructure. “The coordination between Volga-Dnepr Airlines’ sales, customer services and operations teams was smooth and at all departments worked well with CF Africa to overcome any issues in good time,” said Iain Clark, Director of Chapman Freeborn Africa.www.chapman-freeborn.comwww.volga-dnepr.comlast_img
