How Phoenix zoos, aquariums, wildlife rescues care for their animals

With the outcry echoing over the death of four dolphins at now-closed Dolphinaris, here’s what you’ll find at other Phoenix animal-based destinations. This conversation is moderated according to USA TODAY’s community rules. Please read the rules before joining the discussion. Even before it opened, Dolphinaris Arizona raised a public outcry with its plan to bring marine mammals to the desert, a clamor that intensified over time as four dolphins died. And when a jaguar clawed a woman who leaned into the animal’s enclosure at Wildlife World Zoo in Litchfield Park, people fretted on social media about the animal’s fate, fearing it could be euthanized (it wasn’t). The situations show a public that has become increasingly concerned with the way we care for animals in captivity. While Dolphinaris, near Scottsdale, has since closed (and may reopen under a concept that will won’t involve animals), the deaths of four dolphins was a stark reminder that animals depend on us for humane treatment. Bert Castro, president of the Phoenix Zoo, has witnessed the evolution of how people have become much more aware of the living conditions of exotic animal...

Open-source 3D scanning brings the technology to the masses, making it cost-effective and customizable. Check out

Open-source 3D scanning brings the technology to the masses, making it cost-effective and customizable. Check out our favorite open-source 3D scanners for 2019! 3D scanning is a great companion to the additive manufacturing family. It lets you create models of real-life objects and spaces without you needing to know their design specifics beforehand. 3D scanning does the measuring for you so you can ditch the measuring tape. This is super helpful in a wide variety of industries and hobbies, as it’s a non-intrusive way to replicate 3D objects. If you’re not familiar with 3D scanners, you can think of them kind of like advanced video cameras. Using a variety of techniques, they capture light in order to generate digital maps of 3D objects. Once this map is complete, the appropriate software helps you create a replica design of the object you scanned. Within that software, you can either leave the design exactly as is for a direct clone, or you can adjust design details for any improvements or deviations you might want to make. Your 3D scans are ultimately only as good as your software, so you may be tempted to get the most expensive your budget will allow. However, this may not be...

His winning bet during the financial crisis garnered him fame—now, he’s betting against Elon Musk’s Tesla

That is the view of Steve Eisman, the hedge-fund manager and investor who garnered prominence on Wall Street for his bets against dicey mortgage products engineered by some of the world’s biggest banks. Now Eisman is betting against Elon Musk’s Tesla Inc. TSLA, -1.01% because, as he put it during a Friday interview on Bloomberg TV, he doesn’t see value in the company and doesn’t believe Tesla is doing enough in autonomous driving. “I don’t see the value in Tesla,” Eisman said. “We’re short Tesla,” meaning he is betting that the price of the company’s shares will fall over time. Eisman said Tesla’s quarterly results could be pivotal for the electric-car manufacturer whose polarizing founder has been ensnared in a series of controversies in recent weeks and has been described by critics as a distraction for Tesla. Earlier this month, Musk was compelled to apologize after referring to one of the rescuers of the 12 boys and a their 25-year-old soccer coach trapped in a Thai cave as a “pedo.” “We’ll see how his quarter goes,” said Eisman. Tesla earnings are slated to be released Wednesday. Crowdsourcing data company Estimize, which gathers estimates from buy-side analysts, hedge-fun...

KASHGAR, China — A God’s-eye view of Kashgar, an ancient city in western China, flashed onto a wall-size screen, with colorful icons marking police stations, checkpoints and the locations of recent security incidents. At the click of a mouse, a technician explained, the police can pull up live video from any surveillance camera or take a closer look at anyone passing through one of the thousands of checkpoints in the city. To demonstrate, she showed how the system could retrieve the photo, home address and official identification number of a woman who had been stopped at a checkpoint on a major highway. The system sifted through billions of records, then displayed details of her education, family ties, links to an earlier case and recent visits to a hotel and an interne...

Soft-shelled coolers aren’t supposed to work this well. The Hopper Two collapses nearly flat and will keep brews cold for a really, really long time. It’s not light (almost six pounds when empty), but let’s be real—nothing from Yeti is. If you want cold beer for hours, and a lot of it, opt for the Hopper Two. This 36-ounce vacuum bottle seals completely, so you can throw it in your bag without worrying about spillage. It comes with a leakproof lid, but if you prefer easy-drinking access, a straw and chug-cap top are also available. Of all the coolers in Yeti’s line, the Roadie 20 is the smallest and most packed-car friendly. The 19-liter interior is just the right size to fit food and a few beers for two people for the weekend. The Panga offers 75 liters of waterproof storage, thanks to the high-density nylon shell and Yeti’s famous Hydrolok zipper, keeping water and dirt out. We like the EVA foam-molded base, which gives you a solid platform when you’re loading gear. The interior has two mesh pockets...

WATCHING the unfolding events during the EU election campaign up and down the UK, we could

WATCHING the unfolding events during the EU election campaign up and down the UK, we could be excused for thinking that we are living in some kind of doublethink time warp. In times past, our politicians could argue and debate with each other. There were impressive characters whose exchanges led to great changes within society. We could look back to the debates between Foot and Thatcher where there was always a mutual respect for differing opinions. They could talk, confront, and challenge opinion based on facts. They could unite on national matters such as the Falklands conflict. Yet now we live in troubling times. In George Orwell’s masterpiece 1984, Winston Smith reads from the Party Manifesto, ‘the keyword here is blackwhite. Like so many Newspeak words, this word has two mutually contradictory meanings. Applied to an opponent, it means the habit of impudently claiming that black is white, in contradiction of the plain facts.’ When we see the pathetic methods of drowning out democracy ‘in the name of democracy’ such as milkshake-throwing, discussed by Karen Harradine yesterday on TCW, and the labelling as fascist/Nazi/racist of anybody with a differing opinion, we know a tim...

Costumes of complexity: From Nô to Mata Hari, 2,000 Years of Asian Theatre | Fashion

It is surely something of a miracle to explore 2,000 years of theatre in Asia in a single exhibition. But From Nô to Mata Hari, currently at the Musée National des Arts Asiatiques-Guimet in Paris, does just that, showing costumes used in traditional Kathakali dance in India and Japanese Noh drama, Thai Khon and Balinese Barong masks, while also explaining the connections between them. This confrontation produces a real aesthetic shock: it is unusual to find in the same place, almost face to face, these dramatic forms, often very old, certainly infinitely complex and remarkably beautiful. In geographical terms the exhibition, which features almost 300 items – masks, shadow puppets, costumes and films – reaches from India to Japan, Thailand to China, deploying a mass of detail. These simple yet elegant theatrical forms, some of which are covered by the Unesco convention on intangible cultural heritage, create an exciting set of postures and colours. “The exhibition was designed as a spectacle,” says Sophie Makariou, head of Musée Guimet. “We couldn’t make speech and movement part of the show, even if a sequence of several plays is being staged at the same time, but the costumes ar...

CX.I cameras can now be used to cover applications in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries

CX.I cameras can now be used to cover applications in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries With the specially developed IP 65, IP 67 and IP 69K housing accessories, Baumer CX.I cameras can now be used to cover applications in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries, which set high standards regarding cleaning media or surface roughness in the splash or product contact zone. In thermal terms, the accessories are ideal matches for the cameras and turn them into IP 65, IP 67 or IP 69K cameras in no time at all. This flexibility means that the right version is available for every field of application, with an optimum price-performance ratio. The IP 65/67 housing was developed in accordance with EHEDG guidelines. Thanks to its round shape, liquids flow off quickly without forming dirt pockets. The hard anodized surface also resists intensive cleaning processes. The washdown design of the EHEDG-compliant, IP 69K, stainless steel housing, eliminates the possibility of product residue adhesion, facilitates residue-free cleaning and prevents the formation of bacteria. With a surface roughness of less than 0.8 µm and food-grade, hardwearing seals, it is also suitable ...
