first_img FOR BROADCAST ONLY: A new heating system at Perennia Innovation Centre in Bible Hill will encourage Nova Scotia farmers to produce green energy, increasing their profits and helping protect the environment. The system can burn grass pellets and will serve as a pilot project to show how this renewable energy source can be used. Agriculture Minister John MacDonell says that with lots of pasture and a climate that’s ideal for growing grass, Nova Scotia can be a leader in growing grass for energy production. As part of government’s capital plan, the Department of Agriculture is investing 787-thousand dollars to construct a building next to the centre for the heating system. Establishing a market for grass pellets will help spur economic growth and create good jobs in rural Nova Scotia. -30- A new heating system at Perennia Innovation Centre in Bible Hill will encourage Nova Scotia farmers to produce green energy, increasing their profits and helping protect the environment. The system can burn grass pellets and will serve as a pilot project to show how this renewable energy source can be used. Establishing a market for grass pellets will help spur economic growth and create good jobs in rural Nova Scotia. “Agriculture is the backbone of rural Nova Scotia, and we need to think about and do things differently to grow this industry and our economy,” said Agriculture Minister John MacDonell. “That’s why we’re helping develop a green energy niche market and giving farmers an option to supplement their income. It’s a win-win.” As part of government’s capital plan, the Department of Agriculture is investing $787,200 to construct a building next to the centre for the heating system. A tender will be issued for a grass pellets supplier. “With lots of pasture and a climate that’s ideal for growing grass, Nova Scotia can be a leader in growing it for energy production,” said Mr. MacDonell. “Capitalizing on our natural advantage is the kind of innovation that will ensure Nova Scotia’s agriculture industry is strong, profitable, and sustainable.” Nova Scotia has 40,000 hectares of pasture that could quickly be developed to produce 360,000 tonnes of grass pellets per year. This could add about $36 million annually to the agriculture industry. “At our grass pellet plant in Lawrencetown, we are sourcing local hay, processing it locally, and supplying local markets,” said Jonathan McClelland, general manager of West Nova Agro Commodities. “We’re creating new markets for small and medium-sized farms while providing an affordable, green heating fuel to customers.” This is the third straight year the province will release the capital plan before the spring budget. This sends a clear signal of what the province intends to do in the year ahead, and gives the private sector greater opportunity to prepare for projects, creating efficiencies and cost savings for the province.last_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: A court here has directed a deputy commissioner of Delhi Police to give one-week training to the SHO of a police station apprising him of basic law, procedure and ethics after he failed to file reports with the requisite sanctions in a 2018 alleged murder case.Additional Sessions Judge Sonu Agnihotri directed the DCP of south west Delhi’s Dwarka to conduct an inquiry against the station house officer (SHO) of Chhawla Police Station for filing a supplementary charge sheet without the required sanction from the concerned authorities and for “deliberately” not filing reports in the case. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murder”ASI (Assistant sub inspector) has produced supplementary charge sheet containing FSL (forensic science lab) result of ballistics. The same does not contain any sanction of DCP Dwarka,” the court said. “Further, such supplementary charge sheet should have been filed before concerned metropolitan magistrate for the purpose of taking cognizance under the Arms Act and should have been received by this court by way of committal. SHO of Police Station Chhawla does not appear to be aware of this basic procedure or is trying to play smart with the court,” it added. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsThe SHO is the investigating officer (IO) in the case in which three persons have been arrested for allegedly entering a man’s house and shooting his wife dead in 2018. The court asked the DCP to file the status report on the training and the inquiry before it on September 4, the next date of hearing. “Let copy of this order be sent to DCP Dwarka with direction to give one week training to SHO PS Chhawla to apprise him of basic law, procedure and ethics Perusal of record shows that SHO PS Chhawla is sending requests in the present matter consistently and is not appearing,” the court said. “It appears that deliberately reports are not being filed by SHO PS Chhawla in the present matter for reasons known to him. Let an inquiry in this regard be conducted by DCP Dwarka and report in this regard be filed before this court,” it said. The court was informed that the FSL report regarding Digital Video Recorder (DVR) has not been filed by the SHO even after one year of filing the charge sheet in 2018 and hence testimonies of witnesses in the case could not be recorded yet.last_img read more

first_imgTORONTO – Some streets in Toronto’s downtown core were closed early Wednesday as police and firefighters attempted to mount a rescue operation to recover a woman who got stuck atop a tall construction crane.Toronto Fire Services say it appears the woman was trespassing and climbed up the piece of machinery at a construction site on Wellesley St. near Yonge St. during the overnight hours.The woman is approximately 12 storeys up and television video had showed her standing atop a gently swaying large pulley device from which a hook dangles and clinging to a steel cable.The woman was last seen sitting atop the device, which Toronto police Insp. Colin Greenaway said measures only about six inches by two feet.There was no immediate word on why the woman climbed atop the large crane.Residents had alerted police at about 3:30 a.m.“We’re in communication with her,” Greenaway told television station CP24.“We’re very close to having set up a proper plan to have either ourselves or Toronto Fire rappel down with a harness to attach to her and hopefully bring her down in a safe manner.”last_img read more

first_imgEDMONTON – The owner of an Alberta trucking company involved in the fatal Humboldt Broncos bus crash has been charged.Alberta Transportation Minister Brian Mason said Wednesday that Sukhmander Singh of Adesh Deol Trucking faces charges of non-compliance with various federal and provincial safety regulations.“The charges follow an investigation that was completed by Alberta Transportation into the collision,” Mason said. “The investigation found multiple instances of non-compliance of various transportation regulatory requirements in a six-month period.”Sixteen people were killed and 13 were injured in rural Saskatchewan six months ago when their bus was involved in a crash with a semi-truck owned by the Calgary-based company.Jaskirat Singh Sidhu, who was driving the semi unit, was charged earlier this year with dangerous driving causing death and dangerous driving causing bodily harm.Officials with Alberta Transportation said eight charges have now been laid against the trucking company owner.They include seven federal charges: two counts of failing to maintain logs for drivers hours of service, three counts of failing to monitor the compliance of a driver under safety regulations, and two counts of having more than one daily log for any day. The eighth charge under provincial regulations alleges failure to have or follow a written safety program.When reached in Calgary, Singh said he didn’t have any comment.A department spokesman said a federal Crown lawyer will be handling the prosecution on the charges against the owner.Singh’s first court appearance is Nov. 9 in Calgary.The maximum penalty for a federal hours of service failing is $5,000 per offence, while the provincial charge carries a $310 penalty. A court can, however, use discretion to impose a penalty up to $2,000.Alberta Transportation said Adesh Deol Trucking remains suspended.Myles Shumlanski, whose son Nick was injured in the crash, was pleased to hear about the charges.“It’s a good start,” he said. “Some of the people who did the charging need to look at that, too, because why did it get to that point? It’s still happening.”Shumlanski said governments across the country need to look at why licences are being handed out so easily.Mason, citing the Broncos crash as the reason, said the province is making driver training for new commercial truckers and bus drivers mandatory.“That incident prompted jurisdictions across Canada to take a closer look at their safety practices,” he said. “Alberta Transportation was already in the process of considering several improvements to traffic safety in our province.”The province said the training, which will include a standardized curriculum, will be mandatory as of March 1.“New requirements for trucking companies based in Alberta will enhance safety on the roads right across the continent,” Mason said.He said the province will eliminate a temporary safety fitness certificate and require all new commercial carriers to prove compliance with transportation safety regulations before they start operating. They will also be required to renew it every three years.Earlier this month, Alberta also announced that it will ditch its privatized model for road testing and will administer road exams directly to new drivers.Officials said testers will be government employees, and there will be more oversight to ensure that road exams are conducted fairly and consistently.— With files from John Cotter and Chris Purdy.Note to readers: This is a corrected story. An earlier version had the owner’s first name incorrect and Shumlanski’s first name spelled incorrectly.last_img read more

SALEM, Ore. — Oregon will become the first state in the nation to impose statewide mandatory rent control after lawmakers passed a measure that will establish protections for people in the increasingly competitive housing market.The House approved the landmark bill 35-25 on Tuesday, over objections from Republicans who argued rent control will discourage investment and do little to address the state’s affordable housing crisis.The measure, which previously passed the Senate, will now head to Gov. Kate Brown, who has said she will sign it. The bill will take effect immediately, as Democrats say the housing crisis constitutes an emergency.Rep. Mark Meek, a Democrat from Oregon City who sponsored the bill in the House, said the measure will address the state’s homelessness problem and provide Oregon residents “some predictability and stability with their expenses.”Oregon has been struggling to provide housing for the tens of thousands of people moving to the state each year looking for employment and lower costs of living.The state’s seen a 12.8 per cent spike in homelessness over the past decade, with high rates of veterans, youth and families living without shelter, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.“In every corner of Oregon, individuals are facing an emergency,” said Rep. Tawna Sanchez, a Democrat from Portland and the Legislature’s only Native American lawmaker. “From women fleeing domestic violence, to working families in communities big and small trying to get by, to indigenous people who struggle to find a safe and secure home, this crisis touches all of us.”The measure has made Oregon a nationwide leader in tenant protections, and advocates say rent control is the first step in addressing high rent, gentrification and a lack of affordable housing. New York has a statewide rent control law, but cities can choose whether to participate.California restricts the ability of cities to impose rent control. Last November, voters defeated a ballot initiative that would have overturned that law.Under the Oregon bill, landlords are limited to increasing rent only once per year. That increase can’t be higher than 7 per cent above the consumer price index — a benchmark figure that tracks average prices for most household purchases in the U.S.Landlords also can’t serve tenants no-cause evictions within a tenant’s first year of occupancy, a provision designed to protect those living month-to-month, who are often most vulnerable to sudden rent hikes and abrupt lease terminations.Republicans warned that the measure will only exacerbate the current housing crisis, saying the regulations will discourage investors and landlords from building and maintaining more property.“Reduction in landlords means a reduction in housing, plain and simple,” said Rep. Kim Wallen, a Republican from Medford. “This is the wrong solution for the whole state to make owning rentals so unpleasant that people simple stop getting into the business.”Opponents add that the state should instead focus on the critical shortage of affordable housing. It’s estimated that 30,000 housing units must be built per year to meet the state’s current housing deficit and to build for the future as more people move to Oregon, according to Democrat House Speaker Tina Kotek.Democrats say that new builders are exempt from the rent control law for 15 years, which is meant to spur development throughout the state. They add that they plan to continue addressing the housing shortage with future legislation to incentivize affordable housing.“Oregon is open for business,” said Meek, who works as a realtor outside the Legislature.—Follow Sarah Zimmerman on Twitter at @sarahzimm95 .Sarah Zimmerman, The Associated Press read more

Walgreens has decided to ban tobacco sales to minors several weeks after a federal official called the drugstore chain a top violator of laws restricting access to cigarettes, smokeless tobacco and other products.The drugstore chain said Tuesday that it will require customers to be at least 21 years old to purchase tobacco in any of its more than 9,500 stores nationwide. The policy starts Sept. 1.Former Food and Drug Administration chief Scott Gottlieb said in March that inspectors had found more than 1,800 instances since 2010 in which one of the company’s stores violated the law.U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell plans to introduce legislation that raises the minimum age to buy from 18 to 21 nationally.Walgreens rival CVS Health quit selling tobacco several years ago.The Associated Press read more

“The Committee recognises and supports the efforts of the Government of Sri Lanka to advance democracy and the rule of law, and encourages further steps to address the underlying causes of the armed conflict by promoting justice and reconciliation,” the Senate Committee said in its report. “In Sri Lanka, US foreign assistance will be cut by 92 per cent, mostly from accounts that have supported programs to promote the rule of law, democratic reforms, post-Civil War reconciliation and related efforts,” rued Congressman Ted Yoho, Chairman of House Foreign Affairs Sub Committee on Asia and the Pacific.“These programs are cost-effective ways to contribute to Sri Lanka’s transformation while pursuing a partnership and strategic lead critical locations,” he said.“Even at their height in 2016, US assistance commitments to Sri Lanka were about 42.5 million, and that’s a bit less than half the cost of a single F-35 fighter jet. That seems like a reasonable investment to gain a friend in one of the world’s most critical sea lanes,” Yoho said. The appropriations bill, which landed on the Senate floor yesterday for consideration, seeks USD 43 million for Sri Lanka. This includes USD 35 million as economic support fund, USD 6.8 million for non-proliferation and anti-terrorism and USD 500,000 in foreign military financing and an equal amount for training of military personnel. The Senate committee on its report said that Sri Lanka is strategically positioned along key shipping lanes and emerging from decades of conflict.The House Appropriations Committee has also passed its Foreign Appropriations Bill, but defers from that of its Senate bill on Sri Lanka. Last week during a Congressional hearing, lawmakers had expressed concern over massive cut in US aid to Sri Lanka. “While we’re forming a large Millennium Challenge Corporation compact was Sri Lanka, the MCC will focus on economic activities. I’m concerned that by changing course so drastically, we want to make sure that we’re not throwing away the investments we’ve already made in Sri Lanka, leaving a gap in the democracy and governance programs Sri Lanka badly needs, and potentially forcing the closure of our USAID mission,” said the US lawmaker. For the fiscal year 2018, the Trump Administration has requested USD 3.4 million in foreign assistance for Sri Lanka. It focuses on strong support for security cooperation and enhanced strategic trade controls, while contributing to Sri Lanka’s progress toward becoming a mine-impact-free nation by 2020.Additionally, the MCC is developing a compact with Sri Lanka after it successfully passed the MCC policy scorecard in 2016.In June, MCC approved an initial USD 7.4 million to study potential projects and conduct due diligence work in the transport and land sectors. MCC is working closely with the Government of Sri Lanka to bring a compact for Board approval in 2018, the State Department said. (Colombo Gazette) Citing the geographical and strategic location of Sri Lanka, a Senate committee has opposed Trump Administration’s proposal of a drastic 92 per cent cut in American aid to the island nation, the Press Trust of India reported.“Given the geostrategic importance of the country, the Committee does not support the President’s budget request for Sri Lanka, which proposed a 92 per cent reduction in assistance from the prior fiscal year,” the Senate Appropriations Committee said in a report passing the annual State appropriations bill for the fiscal year 2018, beginning October 1. read more

In response to a rise in sales across Europe, Nissan has announced a 40% increase in production of the Micra at its plant in Sunderland. The company sold 10,445 Micras across Europe in September, making it Nissan’s second best selling model. The UK scrappage incentive scheme has benefitted Nissan in sales of Qashqai, another Sunderland-built vehicle, with a sales increase of 15% in September year on year.  Trevor Mann, Senior Vice President Manufacturing, Nissan Europe, said, “The scrappage incentives have brought sales that wouldn’t normally have been generated with Micra proving one of the most popular. Both the Government’s and Nissan’s own schemes have stimulated the market and allowed us to protect jobs at the plant and in the dealer network. The boost to production has been very welcome but we need to remain cautious as scrappage incentives are scheduled to come to an end shortly.”  The UK scrappage scheme was introduced in May 2009 to provide a boost to the UK automotive industry and to work in conjunction with other European scrappage schemes. Across the market, demand for vehicles has been underpinned by the scheme and the recently announced extension will help to sustain these early signs of recovery. The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) indicates that 260,226 orders have entered the scrappage scheme up to 18 October 2009. The extension to the scheme allows for 100,000 more vehicles to participate, bringing the total to 400,000. The scheme will cease when the funding has run out or at the end of February 2010.

first_imgTHE STEPFATHER OF a missing five-year-old French girl was charged yesterday with unintentionally killing her, in a case that has gripped France.The mother of the child, Cecile Bourgeon, elicited nationwide sympathy with her tale of how, pregnant at the time, she had fallen asleep on a park bench in May and had woken to find her little girl was gone.The 25-year-old had issued a tearful appeal for help in finding her daughter, Fiona.But both Bourgeon and her partner Berkane Maklouf, 32, were taken in for questioning on Tuesday and told investigators that the girl had died at home, prompting a police search.The mother has been charged with four offences: failing to help a person in danger, unlawfully handling a dead body, falsely reporting a crime and interfering with a crime scene.According to investigators, Bourgeon and her partner gave conflicting accounts of how Fiona died.Maklouf said the child died after choking on her own vomit and that the couple panicked when they found her body in the morning.A judicial source said Bourgeon had cracked under intensive questioning and told police that Fiona had died as a result of being hit repeatedly by her boyfriend after a heavy drinking session, and that her body had been buried on the fringes of a forest.About 40 police officers with three sniffer dogs were called in to scour the edge of a lake south of the central city of Clermont-Ferrand to search for the body.If convicted, Maklouf could face up to 30 years in prison. His lawyer said he has denied the charge.© AFP, 2013Read: Up to 70 people trapped after Mumbai building collapseRead: UN notes ‘severe sentences’ for violence against children in Irelandlast_img read more

first_imgThe Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act of 1971, or ANCSA, transferred title to land to for-profit regional and village corporations, not to tribes.A series of talks on the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act begins in Anchorage on Friday, Jan. 26.Passed in 1971, ANCSA transferred millions of acres of land to 12 Native regional corporations and more than 200 village corporations.But as the decades go by since the act was passed, ANCSA is still not fully understood.“ANCSA is this big thing that people kind of know a little bit about,” Angela Gonzalez with the Alaska Native Media Group said. The group is hosting the series of talks at the University of Alaska Anchorage.Gonzalez said establishing Native corporations and gaining land rights has helped reinforce Native identities.“Even though we check ‘Alaska Native’ on a cultural background list, it’s so much deeper than that,” Gonzalez said. “I’m Koyukon Athabascan from Huslia, Alaska,” she explained.Gonzalez said that deep sense of identity has been passed down to younger generations — to people like Kacey Hopson.“My Inupiaq name is Qunmiğu,” Hopson said. “My family is from Wainright, Barrow and Kashmir, Pakistan.”She wasn’t alive when ANCSA was passed, but Hopson said she knows the act has had widespread impacts.“It’s hard to imagine a world in which ANCSA doesn’t exist, especially in my life,” Hopson said. “Because of what our elders did, their efforts, and the way that they organized, I’m still able to live in a world where I can still be connected to my culture and my heritage.”Hopson will join Willie Hensley and Gary Ferguson on stage at the University of Alaska Anchorage Friday, Jan. 26 for the first of three talks on the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act. Their talk is titled “The good, the bad, and the ugly from the perspective of three generations of Alaska Natives.”The second talk is Friday, Feb. 23 on the diversity of village corporations and the third talk, on Friday, Mar. 23 is on women in ANCSA.All three public talks will be held in UAA’s Rasmuson Hall and begin at 7 p.m.last_img read more

first_imgRoshé Anthony, owner and director of the BEAT School of Makeup Artistry as well as founder of the Roshé Cosmetics line. (AFRO/Photo Roberto Alejandro)Anyone looking to enter the field of makeup artistry, or simply on the market for some great cosmetics, may want to look up Roshé Anthony.Anthony is the owner and director of the BEAT, or Beauty Expert Artistry Team, School of Makeup Artistry, located in Baltimore’s Charles Village neighborhood for the last nine years. Harnessing an extensive career in makeup artistry and sales, Anthony is helping to fill a vacancy left behind when the state of Maryland stopped regulating makeup artists, and stopped issuing state certification licenses about seven years ago.“That sort of upset a lot of people in the industry because it basically took away our credential,” said Anthony.That credential was important because it indicated to clients or employers that a makeup artist was properly trained.“At that time, we were administering licenses, but when they decided to stop regulating the makeup artistry, our certificate pretty much took the place of the license, and gained as much notoriety, or importance, or credibility as that [former] license,” said Anthony.BEAT offers a 40 hour program that ends in a makeup artistry certification. Because space at the school is limited, BEAT enrolls classes of six students at a time.“It’s a very intimate setting and within that setting they’re learning sanitation, they’re learning color theory, how to do basic facials so that they’re not just makeup artists, they also know how to consult the client as far as what they need to do to keep their skin healthy, and also to make proper recommendations for their skin,” Anthony said.Students learn about the different tools and techniques for applying makeup as well. The school also partners with fashion shows in the region so students can get some real world experience to put on their resumes as they head into the workforce.Because of BEAT’s success in preparing its students for employment, the state recently approved the school as an official occupational training provider under the federal Workforce Investment Act, making students who enroll eligible for assistance with the cost of the program, says Anthony. Interested applicants can get more information at their Local Workforce Investment Board One Stop Center, according to the Maryland Higher Education Commission website.In addition to the school, Anthony has also developed her own line of cosmetics and skincare products, Roshé Cosmetics. Anthony has been doing this for 12 years, and her line includes your standard items like shadows, lip glosses, and pencils.“With our skincare line, it’s a botanical skincare line. It’s really the heart of my brand because skincare is so important. . . . And once you care for [the skin] and help that client to be healthy in that way, then the makeup is more of an accessory as opposed to something that they need to cover up a problem that they may have,” said Anthony, whose products include cleansers, toners, moisturizers, special treatments for dead skin removal, masks, and scrubs.The Roshé Cosmetics line also contains products for men and teenagers interested in improving their skincare.Anyone interested in learning more about Roshé Cosmetics can do so at www.roshecosmetics.com, or by emailing Anthony at roshe@roshecosmetics.com.Anyone interested in learning more about the BEAT School of Makeup Artistry can call (443) 837-5609, or visit www.beatmakeupschool.com.ralejandro@afro.comlast_img read more

The company’s net income for the quarter was $5.1 billion, compared to $3.89 billion in Q2 of 2017. Diluted earnings per share came in at $1.74, compared to $1.32 the year before.Analysts had expected $13.34 billion in revenue, and earnings of $1.71 per share.But the market wasn’t just reacting to Facebook generating less revenue than expected. The company’s growth numbers also slowed down notably: Daily active users only increased 11% year-over-year, to the tune of 1.47 billion on average during the month of June. A year ago, that growth rate was still at 17%.What’s more, daily active users have effectively been flat in the U.S. sequentially, and even declined in Europe when compared to Q1 — the first time the company has seen such a decline in recent quarters.Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had warned in the past that the company may see some impact on its revenue as it aims to curtail abuse on the platform. “We started to see that this quarter,” Zuckerberg said during Wednesday’s earnings call, while promising to keep investing in fighting fake news, especially around elections.“We run this company for the long-term, not for the next quarter,” he added.Wehner blamed Europe’s new privacy laws for the decline in daily active users in the region, but Facebook CFO Sheryl Sandberg said that this hasn’t affected the company’s bottom line thus far. “GDPR has not had a significant revenue impact,” she said.Other factors that impacted the company’s revenue were global currency fluctuations, Wehner said.Wehner also mentioned another aspect of the decline that likely contributed to investors’ anxiety: Stories, a format that Facebook has been aggressively embracing across all of its apps, just isn’t monetizing yet as well as Facebook’s traditional newsfeed-based advertising business.Asked by an analyst if Stories would ever become as profitable as the company’s other ad formats, Sandberg remained cautious: “Will this monetize at the same rate as newsfeed? We honestly don’t know.” Popular on Variety center_img Facebook executives have long warned investors that the days of double-digit growth wouldn’t last forever. Investors have just as long shrugged off those warnings, driving the company’s stock up to record highs. On Wednesday, those same investors suddenly woke up to the realization that the good times truly won’t last forever.A miss on user and revenue growth sent Facebook’s stock down around 9% in after-hours-trading immediately following the company’s release of its Q2 2018 earnings report. Then, during the company’s earnings call, Facebook CFO David Wehner told investors that the company’s revenue growth would decline significantly over the coming quarters, and that Facebook’s operating margin would sink from currently 44% to the mid-30% range.Those stark warnings sent Facebook’s stock off a cliff, with share prices declining 24% in after-hours trading.last_img read more

first_img New species of lizard found in stomach of Cretaceous microraptor Researchers have discovered that small mammals, such as those similar to this dormouse, tend to survive longer as a species, while larger mammals tend to die out and/or evolve faster. Image: H. Osadnik. Explore further But overall, small mammals’ ability to hibernate or enter a state of torpor seems to give them the largest benefit for prolonging their species duration. As the researchers found, 41 of 67 (61 percent) extinct small mammal genera had some kind of hibernation ability, while only 15 of 50 (30 percent) extinct large mammal genera did. And the small mammals that didn’t hibernate had relatively faster evolution rates, as they were forced to cope with the elements. The longest living genera in the study were a mole, two gliding squirrels, and two dormice, which lasted about 16 million years, and all had the ability to burrow or hibernate. The tapir was the only large mammal that evolved at a slow rate more akin to the smaller mammals. Most large mammals that didn’t hibernate evolved into a new species or went extinct in just a few million years. The shortest duration in the researchers’ data was one million years. However, Stenseth noted that the truly short-lived creatures are invisible in the fossil record. He also explained that short-lived and long-lived mammals both have their own advantages and disadvantages.“The most diverse and abundant groups, such as the mouse-like (muroid) rodents, have high origination and extinction rates,” he said. “But slow evolvers like dormice are successful in their own way, and clearly very good at what they are doing.”In light of the current climate crisis, this study may help scientists predict which kinds of species are more vulnerable to climatic fluctuations, the authors explain. “There has been a steady loss of large mammals in recent times, and this trend is likely to continue,” said Mikael Fortelius, geology professor at the University of Helsinki and a co-author of the paper. “We are currently extending our PNAS study to include living mammals and hope to be able to present our results soon.”More information: Liow, Lee Hsiang;, Fortelius, Mikael; Bingham, Ella; Lintulaakso, Kari; Mannila, Heikki; Flynn, Larry; and Stenseth, Nils Chr. “Higher origination and extinction rates in larger mammals.” Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Recently, a team of researchers from Finland, Norway and the US has found that larger mammals seem to evolve more quickly than smaller ones – but the reason isn’t body size, per se. Rather, the scientists found that some smaller mammals have the ability to hibernate, burrow or hide in other shelters. In doing so, they effectively sleep through harsh environmental changes. Larger mammals, on the other hand, must endure the hard times when there’s little food or extreme weather. Their large size constrains them from digging burrows or lowering their metabolic rates for extended time periods. In a sense, larger mammals face the elements head-on like a fearless adventurer who might not make it through alive, and is forever changed by the experience.The finding – which is based on analysis of a large Neogene Old World fossil dataset – is somewhat surprising. On an individual level, large mammals tend to live significantly longer than smaller ones. For example, elephants can live up to 70 years, while shrews are lucky to reach two. Because of their faster generation times, small mammals should evolve faster, and small mammal species and genera should appear and go extinct faster – but this is not the case. “We believe the greatest significance of our work is showing that, contrary to expectation, small mammals do not evolve faster than large mammals, and that some of them actually evolve much slower,” Nils Stenseth, zoology professor at the University of Oslo, told PhysOrg.com. “The greatest potential significance is in the SLOH [sleep-or-hide] hypothesis – specifically in its implication that removing part of the environmental pressure slows down evolution quite dramatically.”Previous studies – some focusing on tropical mammals – have had mixed results on size-based evolution rates for fossil mammals, with some finding the opposite pattern and some finding no difference. One possible explanation is that large mammals in tropical climates don’t face such harsh environmental conditions, and so they may last longer and evolve more slowly. Further, smaller mammals in tropical areas may suffer from the increased competition, leading to more rapid turnover rates for them.center_img Citation: Large mammal species live harder, die out faster (2008, May 7) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2008-05-large-mammal-species-harder-die.html Throughout Earth’s history, species have come and gone, being replaced by new ones that are better able to cope with life’s challenges.
