More than 100,000 acres have burned in Arizona wildfires

Two growing wildfires in eastern Arizona have burned more than 109,000 acres as of Monday afternoon, according to officials at the interagency Incident Information Center. The Telegraph Fire has scorched 56,626 acres in and near the southern edge of Tonto National Forest and is 0% contained, according to Incident Commander Dave Bales.

The Incident Information Center said the fire is less that 1 mile from the community of Top-of-the-World, which has about 250 people,. “It is a fast moving and dynamic fire,” the center’s website (InciWeb) says. Growth is attributed to the winds and the brush, such as chaparral, the center said.

Forecast of Strong Winds in Eastern Riverside County Prompts Dust Advisory

A windblown dust advisory will go into effect Monday afternoon in the San Gorgonio Pass area near Banning and the eastern Coachella Valley due to strong wind gusts. The National Weather Service is forecasting westerly wind speeds between 25 and 35 mph in the mountains and deserts, with gusts between 50 and 60 mph, triggering the dust advisory, which will be in effect from 2 p.m. Monday through 6 a.m. Tuesday. High winds could kick up dust and create unhealthy air conditions, according to the South Coast Air Quality Management District. Residents in wind-impacted areas are encouraged to limit exposure by remaining indoors with windows and doors closed, and to avoid vigorous physical activity. The weather service said blowing dust and sand in the deserts may also greatly reduce visibility. Residents can check their air quality in real time by downloading the South Coast AQMD app — http://www.aqmd.gov/mobileapp — available in English and Spanish, or by viewing the AQI map found at the bottom of the http://www.AQMD.gov homepage.

The Block Palm Springs : A downtown area for tourists and residents to enjoy

  A block in downtown Palm Springs is undergoing a transformation with hopes of revitalizing the area, and attracting visitors with architecture, art pieces and nearby restaurants. “We just saw this and thought it was a really fantastic place to be taking photos,” said James Collins, a resident who enjoys his free-time in the downtown area. For the last year ,the pandemic has kept residents and visitors from enjoying what the street has to offer. “Oh we love shopping here, it’s just fantastic,”said Cathy Rycraft, who was enjoying her lunch at Tommy Bahamas with her mother.   Now, Michael Braun, President of Grit Development, formerly known as Wessman Development, is in charge of the project. He says his goal is to bring the community back together. “We’re calling it the Block Palm Springs. It’s the area where the community spends their time, it’s the area where people socialize together and have conversations,” said Braun.  Although it has existed for years, the renewed focus on the area hopes to bring more diversity and attract people of all ages. “How do you engage with the next generation, by…

El Salvador adoptará a bitcoin como moneda de curso legal, dice su presidente

(CNN Business) — El Salvador podría convertirse en el primer país en adoptar bitcoin como moneda de curso legal, anunció el presidente del país Nayib Bukele en video mostrado durante la conferencia Bitcoin 2021 celebrada en Miami. «La próxima semana enviaré al Congreso un proyecto de ley que hará de bitcoin una moneda de curso legal», dijo Bukele, según el organizador de la conferencia, Bitcoin Magazine. Bukele, un populista de derecha de 39 años que llegó al poder en 2019, tiene una fuerte mayoría de 56 de los 84 escaños desde una victoria en las elecciones legislativas de marzo pasado. Eso significa que la aprobación del proyecto de ley es probable. Gobierno de China presiona más a mineros de criptomonedas 1:08 Bukele dijo que El Salvador se asoció con la compañía de finanzas digitales Strike para establecer la logística de la decisión. «Más del 70% de la población activa de El Salvador no tiene una cuenta bancaria. No están en el sistema financiero», dijo el ceo de Strike, Jack Mallers. «Me pidieron que ayudara a escribir un plan y que veían bitcoin como una moneda…

La FDA aprueba el primer medicamento nuevo para el alzhéimer en casi 20 años, en una decisión controvertida

(CNN)– La Administración de Medicinas y Alimentos de Estados Unidos (FDA, por sus siglas en inglés) aprobó este lunes el uso del fármaco experimental aducanumab para las fases tempranas de la enfermedad de Alzheimer, a pesar de que un comité consultivo de la FDA concluyó el año pasado que no hay pruebas suficientes que respalden la eficacia del tratamiento. La FDA no ha aprobado un nuevo fármaco contra el alzhéimer en casi 20 años. La empresa farmacéutica Biogen y su socio japonés Eisai desarrollaron el aducanumab, que se administra por vía intravenosa, para tratar la enfermedad de Alzheimer en sus primeras fases. El medicamento se desarrolló pensando en los pacientes con deterioro cognitivo leve, no para aquellos con demencia severa. «La promesa del aducanumab es desacelerar la progresión de la enfermedad y no mejorar la cognición», dijo el Dr. Babak Tousi, que dirigió los ensayos clínicos con aducanumab en la Clínica Cleveland de Ohio, en un correo electrónico enviado a CNN el viernes. Prueba de sangre para detectar el alzhéimer está más cerca de ser realidad, revelan estudios «Este tratamiento es muy distinto a lo…

Jeff Bezos irá al espacio en el primer vuelo tripulado de un cohete

Nueva York (CNN Business) — Jeff Bezos volará al espacio en el primer vuelo con tripulación del New Shepard, el cohete fabricado por su compañía espacial, Blue Origin. El vuelo está programado para el 20 de julio, solo 15 días después de que renuncie como presidente ejecutivo de Amazon. Blue Origin dijo que el hermano menor de Bezos, Mark Bezos, también se unirá al vuelo. «Desde que tenía cinco años, he soñado con viajar al espacio», dijo Bezos, de 57 años, en una publicación de Instagram el lunes por la mañana. «El 20 de julio emprenderé ese viaje con mi hermano. La mayor aventura, con mi mejor amigo». Si todo sale según lo planeado, Bezos, la persona más rica del mundo con un patrimonio neto de US$ 187.000 millones, será el primero de los magnates espaciales multimillonarios en experimentar un viaje a bordo de la tecnología de cohetes en la que ha invertido millones en desarrollar. Ni siquiera Elon Musk, cuyo SpaceX construye cohetes lo suficientemente poderosos como para entrar en órbita alrededor de la Tierra, ha anunciado planes para viajar al espacio a bordo…

Classified report with early support for lab leak theory reemerges as focal point for lawmakers digging into Covid-19 origins

A classified report drafted last year warning that the CovId-19 pandemic might have leaked from a lab in Wuhan has reemerged as a focal point with lawmakers seeking to revive the search for answers. The report, which was issued by researchers at the government-backed Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in May 2020, found that it was possible that the coronavirus escaped from a lab in Wuhan, according to four people familiar with the document, at a time when that line of inquiry was considered politically taboo. It’s not clear how influential the paper’s findings were in advancing the government’s understanding of the virus’s origins nor whether the document weighed in on a simmering debate over whether the kind of research being done on coronaviruses at the lab might have contributed to the creation of Covid-19. The report also found that virus might have developed naturally in the wild — echoing what the intelligence community now says it believes — and multiple sources familiar with the document downplayed its significance. But the report has taken on fresh political power on Capitol Hill as the possibility that the…
