The first ‘green’ SEA Games – VnExpress


For the first time, Vietnam organized the Southeast Asian Games with many activities “say no to plastic waste”.

In mid-May, when many sports at the 31st SEA Games entered the final round, thousands of fans flocked to the competition venue to cheer on the athletes. At the same time, hundreds of volunteers were busy picking up trash and cleaning up the landscape to respond to the convention saying no to single-use plastic waste.

At My Dinh Stadium, Hanoi, where many sports events take place with a large number of fans, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment set up a display area to exchange trash for gifts. Nearly a month ago, volunteers assembled this area with bamboo, an environmentally friendly material that could be recycled when the congress ended. The billboards are also printed smaller, for symbolic purposes only.

When exchanging trash, visitors will receive back simulated medals, key chains designed with plywood, environmental protection manuals, puzzles made from milk cartons or bags made from cloth. used.

If she collects more than 15 plastic bottles, she will exchange for a medal made of pressed wood, bonsai or a thermos bottle.

Phuong shared that she often took her children to watch sports activities, quite surprised that at the 31st SEA Games, trash could be exchanged for gifts. “I always teach my children to put their trash in the bin every time they go to a sport, but in many places it is not easy to find the trash. This idea is very educational because in addition to their own trash, children can pick up more trash. around to exchange for many gifts,” Phuong added.

The organizers always maintain about 50-100 volunteers at the venues with a lot of fans to pick up trash. Wading through the stands of My Dinh Stadium, picking up milk cartons and tissues, Nguyen Hoai Thu, a student at the University of Water Resources, said that she had participated in volunteering activities from the first days of the congress. “It may be harder to pick up trash than other activities, but you and I are always ready for us to have an environmentally friendly SEA Games,” Thu said.

In addition to the two activities above, the Organizing Committee also distributed handbooks to reduce plastic waste, organized propaganda convoys, and provided more than 100,000 aluminum water cans for all activities of the athletes.

Mr. Vu Minh Ly, deputy director of the Center for Communication of Resources and Environment, said that the decision to organize the green SEA Games was made more than a year ago when the schedule for the congress was fixed in the second quarter of 2022. Many meetings have been held to ensure that side activities bring practical results.

According to Mr. Ly, when going to support sports, people often use single-use plastic water bottles, many types of low recycling rate, while if buried, hundreds of years will not decompose. If replacing with aluminum cans, then collected and transferred to the production unit, it will be 100% recycled as new in just 30 days.

Spacecraft lose power during total lunar eclipse


The first total lunar eclipse of 2022 caused power outages for solar-powered spacecraft from NASA, India and China.

The super blood moon eclipse that took place on the evening of May 15 is an exciting sight for observers on Earth, but for spacecraft on the Moon, it is a stumbling block because all three are currently operating. Currently, NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), India’s Chandrayaan-2 and China’s Jade Rabbit 2 self-propelled robot are all powered by solar energy. Because the Moon underwent a total lunar eclipse on May 15, lasting until the morning of May 16, the entire Sun-illuminated area of ​​the Moon will be in darkness when this satellite enters the Earth’s shadow. The spacecraft will not be able to charge the battery pack.

This is not the first time spacecraft have experienced a total lunar eclipse. Since the LRO began its mission in lunar orbit in September 2009, the spacecraft has experienced 11 total lunar eclipses, so the project’s team knows exactly how to prepare for the total phase. section lasts 85 minutes.

“As the LRO moves through a long lunar eclipse, draining the battery isn’t ideal, so we turn the devices off and wait until the battery pack can be fully charged before turning the device back on,” said Noah. Petro, a scientist working on the LRO project, said. “We also warmed up the spacecraft so that when it’s in the Earth’s shadow it doesn’t get too cold. We’ve done this many times, so it’s a well-rehearsed sequence.”

In fact, the preparations began a few weeks ago. The researchers activated the engine to adjust the trajectory to minimize time spent in the dark.

It is likely that the Chandrayaan-2 vessel also undergoes a similar sequence of processes. Chandrayaan-2 launched on July 22, 1950, 50 years after Apollo 11 landed on the Moon. The ship had a total lunar eclipse on May 26, 2021. Similar to LRO, vehicles use solar cells and may have to be shut down during a lunar eclipse.

While LRO and Chandrayaan-2 are orbiting craft, Jade Rabbit 2 is a self-propelled robot that landed on the dark side of the Moon in January 2019 during the Chang’e 4 mission. Since then, the vehicle has explored the mouth. Von Karman crater. Due to its solar power, Yutu-2 cannot operate at night and loses power for more than two weeks at a time. Because a total lunar eclipse only occurs when the moon is full, in which the dark area of ​​the Moon is in complete darkness, the robot Rabbit Ngoc 2 has lost power before.

Maintaining a reasonable weight is good for brain health in old age – VnExpress


Maintaining a healthy, stable weight can slow the risk of cognitive decline in old age.

As a person ages, cognitive health becomes more and more important. Study “time-stable BMI is associated with better cognitive trajectories in older adults” January 2022 in the US journal Alzheimer’s & Dementia indicates that the ability to maintain a healthy weight may be an important factor in brain health in old age.

Dr. Michal Schnaider Beeri from the Icahn School of Medicine, New York, USA, said, stabilizing body mass index BMI has a protective effect, reducing the rate of decline of a person. Perception includes orientation, attention, memory, speech fluency, language, and visual-spatial ability…

The researchers looked at nearly 16,000 older adults who had been screened for dementia over five years. The study found that people with a significant change in BMI (a 5% increase or decrease) were more likely to experience cognitive decline.

Beeri explains, when the body has a stable weight, it means that health indicators such as cholesterol or blood pressure are also better controlled, while these two factors are closely related to brain health. .

However, whether being overweight is harmful or beneficial to brain health in aging is still a matter of debate. Dr. Beeri said that in previous studies she and her colleagues showed that cognitive decline and dementia occurred more in older people with high BMI. For example, research shows that a large waistline is associated with poorer brain health in older women with type 2 diabetes.

Another study that followed more than 450,000 people with obesity over a 12-year period, starting in middle age, found an association between obesity and dementia in several age groups. In that study, people over 80 who were obese were less likely to develop dementia than those who weren’t.

The researchers found that cognitive decline and intellectual decline were more common in older people with high BMIs. However, there are still some cases where no link can be found, even the risk of dementia in the elderly with obesity is lower. Additionally, weight loss has also been linked to a higher risk of dementia.

According to experts, focusing on other goals such as being active, improving function and keeping a healthy weight helps control blood pressure and blood sugar.

Just 2 minutes of moderate to brisk walking every hour can improve blood sugar levels. Even just reducing the amount of time you sit each day can be beneficial. The most important thing to maintain health is that exercises must be maintained regularly.

In short, good brain health has nothing to do with being thin or fat, but rather a stable weight and physical fitness. Therefore, experts recommend that people maintain their weight and aim for appropriate, regular exercise. If you’re interested in a new exercise, talk to your doctor first to determine what activity is right for you and best for you.
