Attack In LA (2018) 720p

Three species of otters inhabit India, and the Smooth-coated otter (Lutrogale perspicillata) is common in Kerala (Menon, 2014) and mainly feeds on fishes (Prater, 1965). Bite attacks of otters on humans were reported from North America (Lontra canadensis) (Potter et al., 2007) and South America (Pteronura brasiliensis) (McTurk and Spelman, 2005). Several anecdotal incidents of human-otter (Lontra canadensis) conflicts and rabies infection within the species were reported by Belanger et al. (2011). An attack by Smooth-coated otter at Tungabadra, India was reported by Nagulu (1992). In this paper, Smooth-coated otter (Lutrogale perspicillata) attacking people in Thrissur District, Kerala, India is reported. Hunting of smooth-coated otter is illegal as this species is protected by the Wildlife Protection Act of India.

Attack in LA (2018) 720p

Incidents of otter-bite were recorded as a part of the detailed study on human-wildlife conflict in Kerala from April 2009 to March 2012. The conflict sites were visited and the victims of attack were queried at their home. Date and time of attack and mode of attack were recorded. Focus group discussion was carried out with the local people. Twelve houses were surveyed (four houses from each area of otter attack), which were on average 143 m away from water-bodies. Details of ex-gratia claimed and provided were collected from the records of the Kerala Forest and Wildlife Department.

Attacks of smooth-coated otters on humans were recorded during dawn and dusk, and in all the incidents, the otters were in groups. Fish is the main food of this species (Prater, 1965; Anoop and Hussain, 2005) and it was reported that fish are abundant in the rivers and backwaters of the District (Kadhar, 1993). Human fatality due to attack by smooth-coated otter was reported for the first time in Kerala. A human death due to a Smooth-coated otter had been reported earlier at Tungabadra, India by Nagulu (1992). Fishermen were killed in both incidents. It is assumed that otters attacked the fisherman because their pups were trapped in the net, as happened at Tungabadra. Otters bit the legs of both boys without any apparent provocation and the signs of attack were clearly visible (Figure 2). Studies in North America pointed out that otters are very aggressive when their pups are accompanying them (Chapman and Feldhamer, 1982; Shannon, 1989; Kruuk, 2006). In the National Chambal Sanctuary, India, the breeding season of Smooth-coated otters was reported to be between August and November (Hussain, 1996). Two of these incidents were recorded in the district during the same period and the remaining incident occurred two months before the mating period (Table 1). It is therefore likely that territorial incursion by humans was the trigger for all three events.

Meanwhile, Arkansas discovers the destroyed Tampa Bay, and also finds the sunken Russian submarine Konek damaged in a manner that suggests internal sabotage rather than external attack. They are attacked by another Russian Akula submarine, Volkov, that had been hiding under an iceberg, but are able to destroy the ambusher and rescue Russian survivors from Konek, including its commanding officer, Captain 2nd rank Sergei Andropov.

As the U.S. and Russian fleets prepare for battle, Arkansas sustains further damage when it is attacked by Andropov's old ship, RFS Yevchenko, a heavily-armed destroyer now commanded by Captain Vlade Sutrev, a member of Durov's conspiracy. Andropov is, however, able to communicate a message to the Yevchenko that President Zakarin is aboard the submarine. When Durov orders his forces at the base to fire missiles at the surfaced Arkansas, Glass refuses to take action, realizing that firing back could start the war he is trying to stop. In the last seconds, Andropov's old crew defy orders and destroy the incoming missiles with their close-in weapon system before they can strike the Arkansas, and subsequently destroy the naval base headquarters with their missiles, killing Durov. With the war averted, Glass docks Arkansas to the Russian naval base to return Zakarin and Andropov's surviving crew to their country. Arkansas picks up Beaman and Martinelli, and travels back to the U.S. with a Russian Navy escort.

The first observation in Paris was not conclusive and we were rather perplexed as to the productivity of this method. But during the second observation (the one recorded in this report), the richness of our interviews and the immenseness of the place stimulated us even more to deepen our study. In almost 3 hours of active field observation, we came back with frozen hands, notebooks full of scribbles, telephones full of photos and above all with our minds nourished by various and varied questions. By confronting us with the reality of these objects which have a fundamental role in our lives as connected citizens, we let ourselves be guided by a subject of study with infinite possibilities. Thus, this security aspect of the data center could be approached from the point of view of the security of the personnel working in these buildings. Indeed, if sensitive data were to be revealed, they could attract the covetousness of some. Similarly, in order to support the angles of attack on the data center, it would be relevant to look at the nationalistic aspect of the states, which have control over the data of the web giants. As a result, states could force GAFAM to use data centers based only in the country where they operate. This points out the particular issues of sovereignty of a country and protection of citizens. Thus, we believe that data centers are undoubtedly extremely rich objects of study, sources of great questions and future scientific work. 041b061a72
