The temperature in the Arctic Siberia city reached 100 degrees, a new height

Published

on

A Siberian town that endures the world's widest temperature range has recorded a new high due to a heat wave that is contributing to severe forest fires.

Temperatures in the small Siberian town of Verkhoyansk reached 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit on Saturday, according to weather data facing the public. This is the highest temperature in one of the fastest heating places in the world.

Siberia tends to experience large changes in temperature month-to-month and year-to-year, according to the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S), a program affiliated with the European Commission. But it’s not unusual for temperatures that are warmer than average to continue for so long – temperatures in Siberia have remained above average since 2019.

The average June temperature in Verkhoyansk reaches an altitude of 68 degrees Fahrenheit, so the new highest temperature is alarming.

The sad signs continue on Monday, when satellite footage shows several forest fires in Siberia near the Arctic Circle. Senior scientist at Copernicus’s Atmospheric Monitoring Service, Mark Parrington note down that the number and intensity of Siberian forest fires also increased rapidly.
Ice in the Siberian rivers broke “very early” in May, which is the hottest record in May in the region since records began in 1979, C3S reported.

Also in May, permafrost melting under the tank brackets produced “massive” diesel spills in the region, which could spill into the Arctic Ocean.

Dramatic swings in northwestern Siberia last month will occur only once in 100,000 years if it were not for climate change, climate scientist Martin Stendel the word.

Accelerated Arctic warming

The Arctic heats up twice as fast as the rest of the planet through a process known as Arctic amplification.

Arctic ice melt has increased, which leads to seasonal snow layers that are not white and absorb more sunlight, which causes more warming, according to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

That’s important for the whole world, too. Melting ice in the Arctic leads to higher sea levels, and not just in the Arctic Ocean. With less ice reflecting the sun, the world’s oceans will warm up.

Plus, NOAA Arctic Report Card 2019 found that melting the Arctic ice sheet can release up to 600 million tons of clean carbon into the atmosphere per year.

Brandon Miller and Julia Hollingsworth from CNN contributed to this report.

Mutirão Opens To Negotiation Of Individuals' Overdue Debts - Português (Brazil)

September is a very important and visible month for deaf people, with three dates that raise awareness and celebrate achievements that are part of the entire community’s trajectory and struggle. These are: – International Sign Language Day, September 23; – Day of the Deaf, 26 September; and Libra National Interpreter and Translator Day on September 30th. With a focus on the deaf community, the Department of Education is promoting several initiatives in this area.

The first is aimed at changing the scenario of educational and language policy based only on the inclusive perspective of including a deaf student in the school environment without guaranteeing procedures that enhance accessibility in his education. The National Guidelines for Bilingual Education for the Deaf integrate all stages of basic education and are based on the promotion of bilingual curricula and pedagogical practices for the deaf: Brazilian Sign Language (Libras) and written Portuguese.

Through the Department of Special Education, the MEC coordinates with interested municipalities the construction, renovation or expansion of bilingual schools for the deaf. To date, 11 locations in Brazil have shown interest in the project. To complement this phase, the Libras National Textbook Program (PNLD) provides accessible formats to deaf students and public school teachers of basic education in the country.

In the academic world, in partnership with universities, advanced training courses are offered for teachers, managers and professionals who want to work with bilingual education for the deaf. Thanks to the projects of various institutions, there are currently 3,520 vacancies for teaching the deaf.

On the Internet, Canal Libras is a space for communication and content distribution with a focus on the national educational network, from early childhood education to higher education.

INES

Another important date: The National Institute for Education for the Deaf (Ines) turns 165 on the same Libra and the Deaf Day, September 26th. Within the structure of the Ministry of Education, the Institute stands out as a national reference in the field of deafness, necessary to support the formulation of public policies, and then for their implementation in the field. The Institute works to promote education for deaf children, youth and adults.

Sarah’s complaint comes after the league filed a complaint against a Manchester United player for aggression against Jake in the Manchester team’s match against Everton on April 9 last season in the Premier League. After an unsuccessful result, the Portuguese dropped a fan’s mobile phone on the way to the locker room.

According to Sarah, she and her son once again became victims of offenses in social networks after the announcement of the complaint against the attacker.

“People are following me, saying that I am rebelling again, but I didn’t know anything about it. The case should have been heard six months ago. My son talks every day about what happened to him. He still hasn’t returned his phone,” he said.

Marseille in California.  ″Where the Portuguese is, there is Portugal″

“You are the future,” President Marcelo Rebelo de Souza told a three-year-old girl dressed in traditional Portuguese clothing who came out to greet him on the podium where he spoke at Artesia Portuguese Salon. The city, located on the outskirts of Los Angeles, has not hosted the President of the Portuguese Republic since 1989. This weekend, he did it with pomp and the setting of an ornate Portuguese-American community bursting with pride.

“We have never lost the honor and responsibility of being representatives of this beautiful flag,” said Jimmy Enes, a member of Artesia DES, a Portuguese descendant, in a welcoming speech delivered in perfect Portuguese. “When we are asked who we are, we always answer”i am portuguese“and not”Portuguese-American“or ‘Portuguese American’,” he said. “That’s why we’re trying step by step to protect our heritage on the outskirts of Los Angeles, one of the greatest cities in the world.”
