Chinese Lunar Rover Malfunctions

VOA News
January 27, 2014

China's first lunar robotic vehicle showed signs of a mechanical
control abnormality over the weekend, according to the Chinese
news agency Xinhua, and scientists are now trying to organize
repairs.

The rover, Jade Rabbit, reached the moon last month, the first
soft landing on the lunar surface since 1976.

According to the Chinese State Administration of Science,
Technology and Industry for National Defense, the malfunction was
due to the "complicated lunar surface environment." The
administration gave no other details.

Jade Rabbit and its lander draw power from onboard solar cells
that charge their batteries. During the frigid lunar night, which
lasts about 14 Earth days, there is no sunlight to provide power,
so both parts of the probe go into sleep mode.

The abnormality occurred before the rover's second scheduled
dormancy, on Saturday. The lander also went dormant on Friday.

The rover and the lander have carried out several observations
and tests. The mission is planned to last three months.

Egypt to Try 20 Al Jazeera Journalists on Terror Links

Elizabeth Arrott
January 29, 2014

CAIRO Egypt's top prosecutor says it will put 20 journalists
from Al Jazeera on trial on charges relating to terrorism. It
would be the first such trial of reporters since the government
declared the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group last month.

The chief prosecutor's office says 16 Egyptian and four foreign
reporters are facing charges of belonging to a terrorist group,
or helping spread false news that instills terror.

All of them work for the Qatar-based Al Jazeera network, which
the Egyptian government and many of its supporters accuse of
supporting ousted President Mohamed Morsi and his Muslim
Brotherhood base.

Al Jazeera has denied the accusations, and has repeatedly called
for the release of its staff, saying the charges against them
"totally unfounded."

While not named in the statement released Wednesday, Canadian
reporter Mohamed Fahmy appears to be the chief defendant. He was
not counted among the foreigners as he also is identified as an
Egyptian national.

Fahmy is in detention in Cairo, along with Peter Greste, an
award-wining Australian journalist. Greste recently wrote from
his cell in Tora prison that the arrests have served as a
chilling warning to others of what is acceptable reporting in
Egypt.

The names of all the defendants were not given, nor are all in
custody. Three other foreigners, identified as two Britons and a
Dutch citizen, appear to be based in Qatar.

The Committee to Protect Journalists recently declared Egypt the
world's third most dangerous country for reporters, following
Syria and Iraq, noting the "stark political polarization" of the
country.

That polarization has pitted the military-backed interim
government against perceived supporters of the Brotherhood abroad
as well.

"The Egyptian government is at war with Qatar ... which has given
political asylum to well-known, notorious Egyptian terrorists,"
said political sociologist Said Sadek of the American University
in Cairo.

It's a sign of the current political climate that does not bode
well for the journalists, who have found support among fellow
journalists and media freedom groups around the world.

Washington Auto Show Highlights New Technologies

George Putic, KI4FNF
January 24, 2014

WASHINGTON At this week's annual Washington Auto Show,
manufacturers are featuring their standard models along with cars
that point to the future, both in terms of propulsion and
multi-material body structures.

Besides old concepts, repackaged in newly designed bodies, many
manufacturers are showing models that are test beds for new
technologies that point to the industry's future.

One model attracting a lot of attention is Toyota's
hydrogen-powered FCV Concept, which may be offered to consumers
as soon as next year.

Its fuel cell converts hydrogen's energy to electricity that
charges the car's battery. Hydrogen is abundant and cheap, and
the only byproduct of its use is clean water.

The head of Vehicle System Design at South Carolina's Clemson
University, Zoran Filipi, says that fuel cells are the long-term
environmental solution.

"Recent announcements about this technology becoming available to
consumers are great because it's going to allow for real-world
experience, evaluation of this technology, and will prepare us
for the future where, at some point, the infrastructure might
become available too," he said.

Toyota claims the car has a range of at least 500 kilometers and
that filling the tank takes no longer than refueling a gasoline
vehicle tank.

But cars with regular engines, still the most affordable for
ordinary consumers, are also becoming more environmentally
friendly, especially diesel engines, which are again making their
way into the luxury department.

Clemson University professor Zoran Filipi says internal
combustion engines, IC for short, are fighting back.

"What we see is that the near term combination of these very
advanced IC engine concepts - downsizing, turbocharging, direct
injection and 7, 8, 9, 10-speed advanced transmissions, does
allow 10, 15 even 20 percent improvement of fuel economy," he
said.

Hybrid engines are also making their way into the luxury car
market. U.S. manufacturer Cadillac won this year's prize for
Green Car Technology for its ELR model, with an electric motor
for driving and a small turbocharged gas engine for recharging
the battery, thus extending its range.

The other new technology on the rise is recycled and composite
materials for the car chassis - like BMW's i3 - whose passenger
compartment is completely made of carbon fiber-reinforced
plastics, making it much lighter.

Filipi says lightweight materials and structures are absolutely
critical for vehicles with heavy batteries.

"We might actually see a future with multi-material body
structures - steel, aluminum, carbon fiber - all being used for
the same vehicle, and a lot of welding replaced by gluing," he
said.

Filipi says that there is also active research on bio-based and
biodegradable composites for automotive interiors that can take
us to a sustainable future.

Judging by the models exhibited at this year's Washington Auto
Show, cars of the future will be increasingly cheaper to drive
while their environmental impact will continue to drop.

rogrammingi-u othr0txwtnnesses say nI2tttine people were injuredrnohVeroieeners
clashed with police armed with shields, electric batons and smoke
canisters.


The clashes took place as Mam Sonando and his supporters tried to
march on the Ministry of Information, near Freedom Park, in the
center of the capital.

"The people's demands are legitimate, constitutional, and in line
with government policy," Mam Sonando said. "I am here to support
what the people want. But if the people resort to violence, I
won't support it."

Military police spokesman Kheng Tito told VOA Khmer that Mam
Sonando and his demonstrators had blocked traffic and "disturbed
social order," prompting the crackdown.

"He also refused repeated requests to disband," Kheng Tito said.
"Therefore, our forces had no choice but to disperse them."

At least nine people were injured in the clashes, though no one
was reported arrested or killed.

Sok Ny, a 35-year-old motorcycle taxi driver, said he had been
caught up in the fray and beaten by riot police, after they
shooed him out of the street. "They ordered me to leave and beat
me on my head," he said.

Am Sam Ath, technical supervisor for the rights group Licadho,
called the crackdown "cruel" and "not acceptable."

"It is a serious violation of human rights," he said. "There
should be negotiations, and we don't want to see the use of
violence like this."

Monday's conflict follows similar violence between protesters and
security forces in Freedom Park on Sunday. Pro-opposition and
labor demonstrators clashed with police and ruling party
supporters.

US-based Human Rights Watch on Monday called on the UN to
pressure the Cambodian government over the recent violence.

"Countries at the Human Rights Council should condemn this brutal
crackdown and insist the Cambodian government engage in serious
reforms," the group's Geneva director, Juliette de Rivero, said
in a statement.

Meanwhile on Monday, representatives from three separate Phnom
Penh neighborhoods that have been hard hit by forced evictions
attempted to deliver petitions to Phnom Penh City Hall - but no
officials would agree to accept them.

The petitioners are asking for more land or money from the city,
which has backed a number of development projects that have led
to forced evictions, protests and violence.
