Box jellyfish
Close-up of the bell of a box jellyfish (Cubozoa). Box jellyfish are relatives of true jellyfish, but have a cubic bell and tentacles extending from each lower corner. Unlike true jellyfish they have complex eyes and are active swimmers, avoiding obstacles and chasing after prey. They feed mainly on small fish, which they catch with their stinging tentacles. Some species of box jellyfish have a sting that is rapidly fatal to humans. Filmed in the Gulf of Thailand, near Koh Pha Ngan Island.

As Admiral Landry stated, we should recognise this hasn't been done before, and we should expect it will undoubtedly have some complications, but we are committed to trying to make this work." AP TELEVISION - AP CLIENTS ONLY Gulf of Mexico - 06 May 2010 ++NIGHT SHOTS++ 19. Wide of most of the containment box underwater STORYLINE: BP lowered a 100-ton concrete-and-steel vault onto a ruptured well in the Gulf of Mexico on Friday, an important step in a delicate and unprecedented attempt to stop most of the gushing crude fouling the sea. Underwater robots guided the 40-foot (12-metre) tall box into place. Now that the contraption is on the seafloor, workers will need at least 12 hours to let it settle and make sure it's stable before the robots can hook up a pipe and hose that will funnel the oil up to a tanker. By Sunday, the box the size of a house could be capturing up to 85 percent of the oil. So far about 3 (m) million gallons (11 (m) million litres) have leaked in an environmental crisis that has been unfolding since a deepwater drilling platform exploded April 20, sending toxic oil toward a shoreline of marshes, shipping channels, fishing grounds and beaches. Eleven workers were killed in the accident. Some of those who survived told US network ABC their accounts of what happened aboard the rig. "Everybody was scared to death," said Dwayne Martinez, an oil worker who was aboard the rig when the explosion occurred. "Nothing went as planned like it was supposed to." "There was people screaming and hollering. There was people jumping off the side. I've never seen nothing like that," said Micah Sandell, another worker who survived the blast. Martinez and Sandell said there were no alarms to warn them of a possible fire or explosion and there appeared to be no functioning safety devices or procedures in place to bring the situation under control. The lowering of the containment device was a slow-moving drama playing out 50 miles (80 kilometres) from Louisiana's coast, requiring great precision and attention to detail. It took about two weeks to build the box, and the effort to lower it by crane and cable to the seafloor began late Thursday night. After it hit the bottom on Friday afternoon, the crane gradually eased off to allow it to settle. The task became increasingly urgent as toxic oil crept deeper into the bays and marshes of the Mississippi Delta. A sheen of oil began arriving on land last week, and crews have been putting out floating barriers, spraying chemical dispersants and setting fire to the slick to try to keep it from coming ashore. But now the slick is drawing ever closer to Louisiana's coastal communities. In Shell Beach, Louisiana, a coast usually full of fishermen has been replaced by one full of law enforcement vessels, dealing with the massive oil spill. Many of the fishermen are now working for BP to help deploy the barriers against the oil. "I got to work somewhere. Of course we haven't got paid yet. Don't know exactly what we're going to get paid or when we're going to get paid. But if I sit home I know I'm not going to get paid," said Lester Ansardi, a commercial fisherman. BP representatives assured the fishermen that they would be paid soon and tried to put an end to rumours that the money they make now could affect any settlements with the company down the road. Authorities are warning there are still untold risks and unknowns with the containment box. The approach has never been tried at such depths, where the water pressure is enough to crush a submarine, and any wrong move could damage the leaking pipe and make the problem worse. "We should expect it will undoubtedly have some complications, but we are committed to trying to make this work," BP Chief Operating Officer, Doug Suttles, said on Friday. The seafloor is pitch black and the water murky, though lights on the robots illuminate the area where they are working. If the box works, another one will be dropped onto a second, smaller leak at the bottom of the Gulf. An estimated 200-thousand gallons (757,060 litres) a day have been spewing ever since in the nation's biggest oil spill since the Exxon Valdez disaster in Alaska in 1989. The containment device will not solve the problem altogether. Crews are still drilling a relief well and working on other methods to stop the well from leaking. The quest took on added urgency as oil reached several barrier islands off the Louisiana coast, many of them fragile animal habitats. Several birds were spotted diving into the oily, pinkish-brown water, and dead jellyfish washed up on the uninhabited islands. Seas were calm Friday, and the Coast Guard hoped to continue skimming oil from the ocean surface, burning it at sea and dropping chemicals from the air to break it up.

Wide shot of trading floor STORYLINE US markets experienced a second volatile day in trading on Friday, with the Dow Jones closing with a loss of about 140 points, a day after a brief plunge of nearly 1,000 points, the biggest one-day drop in the Dow's history. A computerised sell-off mixed with fears that the European debt crisis would spread sent the Dow Jones industrial average plummeting by almost 1,000 points within a half-hour on Thursday afternoon. The market regained two-thirds of the loss before the end of trading. On Friday the Dow closed with a loss of about 140 points, having been down almost 280 earlier. US President Barack Obama said that regulatory authorities were evaluating the "unusual market activity" on Wall Street this week in hopes of keeping such a sudden, violent drop from happening again. "The regulatory authorities are evaluating this closely with a concern for protecting investors and preventing this from happening again," he said. Obama said regulators would make public their findings and recommendations about the stock market. Teddy Weisberg, of Seaport Securities, said Thursday's trading was disturbing, but a sign of things to come. "It's become more electronic because that's what the government and the exchanges wanted so we have much more volatility in the markets," he said. Investors are also reacting to Greece's debt crisis, as European leaders attempt to persuade world markets that the spiralling contagion from Greece would not spread to other countries with vulnerable state finances such as Portugal and Spain and derail Europe's economic recovery. Obama said he and German Chancellor Angela Merkel agreed on the importance of a strong policy response by the affected countries as well as a strong financial response from the international community, including the US. The German government on Friday approved its contribution of more than 28 (b) billion US dollars to the rescue package. The White House said Obama is getting regular updates on the situation in Greece. The IMF board of directors planned to meet Sunday in Washington to approve a 40 (b) billion US dollar loan to Greece as part of the rescue package.

Various of man demonstrating outside Number 10 Downing Street gates about Britain lacking a leader, police ushering him away STORYLINE Britain's inconclusive election turned into high political drama on Friday, with the Conservatives and Labour Party wooing a potential ally, as a public accustomed to clearer outcomes watched transfixed. Conservative leader David Cameron and Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg held telephone talks on Friday, kicking off a furious round of negotiations. Clegg was later seen leaving his party's headquarters near Parliament, while Conservative lawmaker William Hague and George Osborne, another senior Tory figure, were both seen leaving a meeting at the Cabinet office. All declined to comment on the prospects of any potential deal. Simon Hughes, a Liberal Democrat Member of Parliament, refused to speculate on any deal and did not comment on the talks. "There have been talks, and there will be more, that's all," he told reporters who doorstepped him at the party's headquarters. "It's going, as you'd expect, properly, carefully, and respectfully, respecting the views of the British people," he added. Cameron, ahead but shy of a majority, seized the initiative earlier in the day with an offer to the ideologically dissimilar but possibly willing Liberal Democrats. Hague told British broadcaster Sky News that any negotiation would be "difficult," but said that the spirit in which Cameron set out his offer gave the talks the "maximum chance of success." Labour incumbent Gordon Brown, beaten but still battling, dangled before the Liberal Democrats their dream of major electoral reform. A weekend of frantic negotiations loomed, but momentum seemed to be with the youthful Cameron. Clegg did not immediately respond in public to his opponents' overtures, but said earlier that the party that had gained the most seats and the most votes, the Conservatives, should have the first right to try to govern. Ideologically, the centre-left Clegg has more in common with Brown. Both oppose the immediate cuts Cameron says are needed to begin rebalancing Britain's debt-burdened economy and both have attacked his Tories as the party of privilege. Clegg has clashed with Brown and Cameron over Britain's expensive submarine-launched nuclear deterrent, which the Liberal Democrat leader has indicated he may want to scrap. But the Conservatives have held out the tantalising prospect of Liberal Democrat seats in a Tory government, with Hague saying Cabinet posts were not off the table. Cameron also left open the option of trying to form a minority government if the Liberal Democrats turned him down. Brown, too, appealed to the Liberal Democrats to make a deal, and went farther than Cameron by promising quick legislation on electoral reform. Even a deal with the Liberal Democrats would leave Labour a few seats short of a majority, meaning they would have to turn to Scottish and Welsh nationalists for further support. Final results in Thursday's election gave the Conservatives 306 seats in the 650 seat House of Commons. Labour won 258 seats, the Liberal Democrats 57, and smaller parties 28. Voting in one constituency was postponed until later this month because of the death of a candidate. Thursday's closely fought election was the first since 1974 to produce a "hung Parliament," in which no party has overall control. The prospect of days, and possibly weeks, of political horse-trading unsettled the financial markets. As the pound and the FTSE-100 index fell sharply, pressure mounted for a quick solution.

Protestors throwing stones at jeep as they drive away, Halamish settlement in background STORYLINE U.S. Middle East envoy George Mitchell met Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Friday, part of a trip to the region to get peace talks up and running between Israel and the Palestinians. Mitchell was in the West Bank to secure Palestinian agreement on indirect peace talks with Israel, and to try and bridge their vast differences on what a future Palestinian state should look like. The two met at the Palestinian presidential compound in the West Bank city of Ramallah. Abbas had agreed to indirect peace talks, but said he still required the formal backing of Palestinian Liberation Organisation (PLO) leaders who will meet on Saturday. The Palestinians refuse to enter direct negotiations unless Israel halts all settlement construction in east Jerusalem and the West Bank. Meanwhile on Friday, approximately 50 protesters, including Palestinians, Israelis and foreigners, clashed with Israeli soldiers and border policemen near the west bank village of Nabi Saleh. The clashes erupted during a weekly protest over a spring claimed by both Palestinians and Jewish settlers. The protestors hurled rocks towards the soldiers and policemen and the soldiers fired tear gas in retaliation. The Palestinians claim the settlers took over the spring, and that since then they have not been able to access it. An Israeli army spokesperson said that Israeli forces broken up the demonstration but made no comment on the status of the spring and access to it. Earlier on Friday Mitchell had met Israeli President Shimon Peres in Jerusalem. Peres declared Israel was ready to reach an agreement on Palestinian statehood, but first wanted its security concerns addressed.

So that will be somewhat we hope less ash but of course we don't know exactly what will happen. The weather prospect is that it is not expected that the potential ash cloud will come onto the European mainland to any significant extent.

Various aerials of grey and white smoke plumes rising from the volcano 10. Aerial zoom in to volcano crater, plumes of ash rising ++MUTE++ STORYLINE Ash from the Eyjafjallajokul volcano will probably not affect European flights, but it might cause some disruptions on transatlantic ones, officials said on Friday. "There will be some congestion in the Spanish and the Portuguese airspace so there may be some delays on the departures of flights but all of the transatlantic flights will be able to operate today," said Brian Flynn, the Deputy Head of operations at Eurocontrol, a Brussels agency that determines the air routes that airliners use across the continent. Eurocontrol said that as the ash cloud has expanded southward, it has squeezed the air space available to trans-Atlantic flights, creating a traffic jam in Spanish air space. The agency warned airliners detouring along the southern edge of the spreading cloud to expect delays of up to 100 minutes. Ireland reopened its western airports on Friday but warned that a 1,000-mile-long (1,600-kilometre-long) cloud of volcanic ash from Iceland was still lurking offshore. The Irish Aviation Authority, which ordered a half-dozen airports shut overnight, quickly reopened them once it became clear that the cloud was staying sufficiently far from Ireland's Atlantic coast, at least until the winds shift once again. Until Iceland's Eyjafjallajokul volcano stops its emissions, the key to the future course of Europe's ash crisis will be the prevailing Atlantic winds. When the winds blow to the northeast toward the unpopulated Arctic, typical in springtime, the danger to aircraft is minimised. But when they shift southward, as happened both this week and in mid-April, airlines' ability to land and depart safely can be jeopardised. The glacier-capped volcano, about 900 miles (1,500 kilometres) northwest of Ireland, has shown no signs of stopping since it began belching ash on April 13. It last erupted from 1821 to 1823. In Iceland, a civil protection official Agust Gunnar Gylfason said the eruption intensified on Wednesday and the volcano continued to emit a higher volume of ash on Thursday. He said the ash plume's maximum altitude was oscillating between 20-thousand and 30-thousand feet (6,000 and 9,000 metres). Until recent days, the ash had remained below 20-thousand feet (6,000 metres) Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: infoaparchive.com (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.

Paramedics taking away an injured protester STORYLINE Police fired warning shots on Friday as thousands of protesters gathered in Nepal's capital to demand an end to a crippling general strike imposed by former communist guerrillas seeking the government's resignation. The estimated crowd of 20-thousand, including doctors, lawyers, business executives, singers, teachers, and daily wage labourers, demanded a halt to the six-day strike that has shut down transportation, businesses and schools in Katmandu and other cities. It was the largest protest against the Maoist-imposed strike since it began on Sunday. The Maoists want Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal to resign and hand power over to a Maoist-led administration. The government has said it won't bow to the demands. The Maoists traditionally back their strike calls with the threat of violence against those who defy them, and their supporters went into Katmandu neighbourhoods on Friday to try to forcibly shut shops that owners opened for business. Thousands of police in riot gear guarded the capital's streets to prevent violence. Police reported at least two clashes on Friday and officers shot weapons into the air and fired tear gas cannisters to bring the situation under control. No information on casualties was immediately available. The unrest has raised fears of renewed bloodshed in Nepal, where the Maoists ended their decade-old insurgency, which left an estimated 13-thousand people dead, and joined a peace process in 2006. The communists won elections in 2008 and briefly led a coalition government. A dispute over the army chief's firing, however, split the coalition, leading to the formation of the current administration that the Maoists are trying to topple. Residents opposed to the strike began lashing out on Thursday, assaulting strike supporters and setting a car on fire in scattered clashes in the capital and other towns. The unrest comes as Nepal's Constituent Assembly, elected to draw up a new constitution, struggles to draft the charter before its term expires May 28.

Devotee taking photograph 9. Pan of Dalai Lama walking down corridor STORYLINE The Tibetan exile movement must press forward with its talks with the Chinese government despite almost no progress from years of negotiations, the Dalai Lama said on Friday. In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, the exiled spiritual leader warned that it could be decades before any benefits of such talks with China are obvious. "So far, dialogue failed, but that does not mean in future no possibility," the Dalai Lama said in his private compound in Dharmsala, the Indian hill town where he has lived since fleeing Tibet more than five decades ago. He said Tibetans were prepared to keep waiting for an improvement in their relationship with Beijing. "We wait now 51 years. Now another 10, 20 years we can wait," he said. The Dalai Lama has said he hopes talks will bring some form of autonomy for Tibet within China that would allow the Tibetan culture, language and religion to thrive. But Beijing frequently accuses the Nobel Peace laureate of seeking independence for Tibet. "Now, whole world knows we are not seeking independence, but then it is Chinese officials who always repeat, we are splittist," the Dalai Lama said. But he added that increasing sympathy for the Tibetan cause among Chinese intellectuals indicates that Beijing's policies could change. He also said there had been vague signs from Beijing that some of the top Chinese leadership might be ready to moderate its stand on Tibet. Talks between China and the Dalai Lama's envoys resumed in January for the first time in 15 months but made no apparent progress on the Tibetans' proposal for more autonomy in the region. Beijing refused to even talk about granting Tibet more latitude, limiting those discussions to the future of the exiled spiritual leader. The Dalai Lama fled his homeland in 1959, nine years after Communist troops marched into the Himalayan region. Beijing claims Tibet has been a Chinese territory for centuries, but many Tibetans say they were effectively independent for most of that time and that migration to the region and restrictions on Buddhism are threatening their cultural heritage.

Now speculators have to know that they will get nothing for their efforts." 8. Various of Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou leaving meeting STORYLINE: French President Nicolas Sarkozy said EU leaders have agreed to a European intervention mechanism to calm markets that have been rattled by the Greek debt crisis. Sarkozy spoke early on Saturday following an emergency summit in Brussels of eurozone nations that are worried the problems in Greece could spread to other countries, including Spain and Portugal. Sarkozy also said European finance ministers will hold an emergency meeting Sunday to work out a plan to fight speculation against their joint currency, the euro. "We face a serious situation in the Euro zone," European Council President Herman Van Rompuy said at a news conference after the meeting early Saturday. "It is about responsibility and it is about solidarity, we will face this situation together." "We will do whatever it takes to safeguard financial stability, not only of Greece but of all the Euro area," European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso added. European leaders also agreed to consolidate public finances and bring in the European Central Bank to ensure eurozone stability. The summit, originally called to sign off on a bailout plan for Greece and draw lessons for the future, turned into one of crisis management amid market turmoil. Financial markets have continued to sell off the euro and Greek bonds even as EU leaders have insisted for days that the Greek financial implosion is a unique combination of bad management, free spending and statistical cheating that doesn't apply to other euro-zone nations. Opening the evening summit among visibly tense dinner partners, Sarkozy and Barroso insisted the crisis now had gone beyond Greece itself and affected the very roots of the currency.
