Peña Nieto y Tania Ruiz: disfrazados en Nueva York

CDMX.- Unas fotos en las que presuntamente aparecen ayer juntos Enrique Peña Nieto y Tania Ruiz, en Nueva York, están circulando en redes sociales y grupos de whatsapp.

En éstas, tomadas por una mujer, se ve a la mediática pareja cenando sushi y tomando vino en el restaurante japonés Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill. Éste se encuentra en el hotel 6 Columbus – Central Park, en la calle 58, a unos minutos de Central Park y los precios que se muestran en su menú oscilan desde los 10 hasta los 28 dólares por un rollo de sushi.

Desde mediados de agosto pasado no se filtraba ninguna imagen o video del exmandatario y la modelo juntos, cuando los grabaron tomándose fotos mientras vacacionaban en Bruselas, sin importarles que otras personas los reconocieran y los grabaran.

Tal parece que ahora quisieron evitar ser reconocidos y por ello Peña Nieto optó por una peluca y una gorra, mientras que ella fue más discreta y se puso una pañoleta. La mujer que tomó las fotos de la pareja asegura que el expresidente se ajustaba constantemente la peluca porque le causaba comezón.

Quien, de acuerdo con su Instagram también está en Nueva York, es Paulina Peña, hija de él. Recordemos que ella rompió el silencio a finales de agosto sobre la relación de su papá y dijo al ser interceptada en el aeropuerto: “nos cae muy bien la verdad, nos cae muy bien y respetamos 100 por ciento la relación y lo que nos importa es que él esté feliz”. Además aseguró que respetaría la decisión de su papá si él quisiera casarse con Tania Ruiz, 22 años menor que él. Tanto Paulina, como su hermanos Alejandro y Nicole, siguen a Tania en Instagram.

La primera vez que captaron a Peña Nieto y a la potosina juntos fue a finales de enero, en Madrid, donde han sido captados paseando en otras ocasiones. Posteriormente fueron vistos en la boda civil en Acapulco de Mar Collado, hija del abogado Juan Collado, y semanas después en su boda religiosa en la ciudad. No olvidemos, además, el mediático video en el que se muestran bailando en una primera comunión en el Lienzo Charro de la Ciudad de México.

Gobierno de AMLO denuncia cifras inexactas sobre daños tras sismos de 2017

CDMX.- El Gobierno de Andrés Manuel López Obrador lleva un avance del 30% en la reconstrucción de viviendas y otros inmuebles dañados por los sismos de septiembre de 2017, y se estima que para finales del 2019 habrá un avance del 41%.

David Cervantes, Comisionado Nacional de Reconstrucción, dio a conocer que se creó la Comisión Intersecretarial para la Reconstrucción, y se ha trabajado con los tres niveles de gobierno para crear convenios. 

Previamente se dijo que en el sexenio de Enrique Peña Nieto había un avance del 29% en la reconstrucción, pero en realidad fue del 21% y los damnificados usaron sus propios recursos para reconstruir sus viviendas.

Detalló que al iniciar el gobierno de López Obrador, se recibió un diagnóstico de 186 mil 526 viviendas afectadas, 19 mil 198 escuelas con afectaciones, 297 centros de salud y hospitales dañados, y 2 mil 340 edificios históricos afectados.

Señaló que todos estos inmuebles dañados se registraron en más de 700 municipios con declaratoria de desastre.

No habrá aumento en las gasolinas pese a ataque a Arabia Saudita: AMLO

CDMX.- Andrés Manuel López Obrador prometió durante su conferencia de prensa matutina que no subirán en el país los precios de las gasolinas, pese al ataque con drones a las instalaciones de Arabia Saudita, lo que disparó el precio del crudo en los mercados internacionales.

“Ahora con este atentado a las plantas de Arabia Saudita, a pesar de los ajustes en los precios del crudo, nosotros estamos protegidos. Decirle a los mexicanos que no van a haber variaciones de precios en las gasolinas. Vamos a mantener el compromiso de que no aumenten los precios de los combustibles en términos reales”, dijo el Presidente.

El mandatario aseguró que se buscará estar en equilibrio, por lo que este día habrá una reunión entre autoridades de la Secretaría de Hacienda y Crédito Público (SHCP), y Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex), con el objetivo de emprender el análisis de la situación.

“Hoy va a haber una reunión entre Hacienda y Pemex, porque por un lado nos beneficia el aumento en el precio del petróleo crudo que se vende al exterior, pero también puede perjudicarnos. Hay que ver cómo está este equilibrio”, apuntó en su tradicional encuentro matutino con la prensa.

Además, López Obrador afirmó que se tiene garantizado el abasto de gasolinas, pues no se reporta ningún problema en las importaciones y porque ha aumentado la capacidad de refinación de las plantas. “Las seis refinerías están produciendo más, no lo que quisiéramos, pero sí más”, subrayó.

Esto luego de ser cuestionado por la posible alza en el precio de los combustibles por el ataque con drones a zonas petroleras de Arabia Saudita, Ricardo Sheffield, titular de la Procuraduría Federal del Consumidor (Profeco), explicó que Hacienda y Pemex tienen un esquema ordenado por el Presidente que garantiza estabilidad en el mercado.

“El señor Presidente hizo un compromiso público que ha venido cumpliendo día con día de mantener estabilidad en los precios de los combustibles. Efectivamente hay un mercado internacional del petróleo, pero a través de la Secretaría de Hacienda y de Pemex, sobre todo en Hacienda, tenemos un esquema que ordenó el señor Presidente en donde se manejan alzas y bajas en el IEPS y en el subsidio a los combustibles, de manera que prevemos que habrá estabilidad en el mercado”, recordó.

Bloqueo en el Istmo

Juchitán de Zaragoza, Oaxaca. La falta de apoyos de los gobiernos federal y estatal a su sector, generó que esta mañana un grupo de pescadores accionaran con bloqueos carreteros en la región del Istmo.

Los pescadores bloquean en los tramos carreteros Juchitán-Unión Hidalgo y Juchitán-La Ventosa en el paraje conocido como los Tamarindos.

Con los bloqueos buscan que los gobiernos federal y estatal, atienda la crisis que prevalece en este sector de la región del Istmo.

También reclaman que la Laguna Superior sea declarada zona de siniestro, por la contaminación que presenta.

Y es que aunque se han realizado los análisis pertinentes, aún la laguna continúa siendo contaminada y les imposibilita a los pescadores realizar sus actividades diarias.

Collaboration adds an extra dimension to undergraduate research

Grace Bryant is a junior at MIT, but it wasn’t until this summer that she got a chance to team up with students outside her major through the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP), supported by the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI). She says she found the experience eye-opening.

“I rarely interact with people doing something different from what I study,” says Bryant, who is majoring in urban studies and planning with computer science. “Talking to people with other majors about what they think their careers will look like was pretty cool, and something I don’t think I would have had without this experience.”

Every summer, UROP students work with faculty on groundbreaking, real-world research; roughly 90 percent of MIT undergraduates will do a UROP before they graduate. Most undertake individual projects, but for those who team up with other undergraduates there are often added benefits — the chance to collaborate, learn from peers, and literally lend a hand — reflecting the kind of experience they’re likely to find in the workplace.

“You never know who is going to change your perspective on your own work,” says Rachel Shulman, the undergraduate academic coordinator for MITEI, which funded 22 UROP students this summer, including multiple teams. “Energy is by definition multidisciplinary.”

“It’s a realistic working environment,” says William Lynch, a research specialist in the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) who supervised two MITEI UROP students on a project focused on extending battery life. “In industry, people work together in teams.”

A helping hand

Some of the payoffs of collaboration are obvious. One of Lynch’s advisees, PJ Hernandez, was at work this summer and suddenly noticed their lab partner, Jackson Gray, struggling to wire a circuit with one hand; he’d recently broken his wrist. Hernandez had often turned to Gray for help on their project because he had a stronger background in electronics. Helping him build the circuit provided a chance to return the favor.

“I’m really lucky there is another UROP,” says Hernandez, a senior majoring in electrical engineering. “Jackson has been helping me understand a lot.”

Gray says working with Hernandez was great for him too — and not just because of his bad wrist. “We can work through the math together to be sure we’re not doing something fundamentally wrong,” says Gray, a junior in electrical engineering. “It’s useful just to have someone to question you and make you justify your ideas.”

James Kirtley, professor of electrical engineering and principal investigator for the RLE project, says he likes to team up students for just this reason. “The very best teachers are students, so it is reasonable to expect that the experienced student will teach the less experienced students what he or she knows,” he says. “And the ambitious but less experienced student will, by asking questions, prod the more experienced student to think more broadly about the problem.”

For Hernandez and Gray, the problem was how to develop an improved cell voltage balancer, a device used to extend the life of batteries by working to ensure that cells remain evenly charged as the battery cycles (charges and discharges current). They were hoping to improve on existing designs, since most balancers today work by dissipating extra charge as heat. As Gray explains, “If the battery management system sees that some cells are more charged than others, it will just waste that energy.”

Gray says he hopes to find a way to balance batteries more efficiently — perhaps by moving charge from one cell to another — in part because batteries are so important to his hobbies. “I enjoy working on electric vehicles and small robots, both of which use lithium ion batteries,” a major focus of the project, he says.

Hernandez’s interest in the project stems more from an interest in environmentalism, since making batteries more efficient should reduce waste: “Reducing our carbon footprint, reducing energy consumption, is really important,” they says.

Learning from others

Hernandez and Gray bolstered each other coming from the same field, but UROPs from different majors gain additional benefits from teaming up — as Bryant discovered by working with Yeva Yin, a junior in business analytics, and Luis Garcia, a senior math major, on a project for David Hsu, associate professor of urban and environmental planning.

Hsu’s project follows up on research conducted over a decade ago that showed that electricity rates are higher in areas where the local utility has spent money on lobbying. Hsu hypothesizes that this connection has grown in the wake of the Citizens United ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court, which declared corporate spending on political candidates to be protected free speech — a decision that has led to a huge increase in such spending.

Hsu employed the UROP team to gather data on state and federal campaign contributions, examine the voting patterns of utility regulators, and dig into the biographies of regulators to see what industries and companies they came from and went to after their service. The team also gathered information about the rates requested by companies, the cases presented for those rates, and the rates ultimately set for electricity—all public information.

Hsu divvied up tasks so that each student took a different dive through the material, and says each individual’s work really complemented the others’. “I like to give each student a piece to be responsible for and make it overlap with the larger project,” Hsu says. “It gives students more independence and more ownership … They can learn more than they would by themselves.”

“We all have different ideas and strengths, and that helps in coming up with different ways to approach topics,” says Yin. For example, she says she often uses applied skills in business analytics but knows less about the underlying theory; Garcia has had almost the exact opposite experience as a math major.

“Studying math, there’s a lot of theory,” Garcia says. “So it’s easier for me to come up with a plan and visualize it. But when it comes time to implement the plan, that’s a newer experience.”

Garcia investigated lobbying data — the amount of money donated by whom and to whom — and he says he learned a lot. “Working with real-world data … you have to decide what you won’t need, what’s actually important,” he says. By contrast, in math, “nothing is a strong judgment call,” he says.

Expanding horizons

All the students on UROP teams agree that collaboration speeds up the research. As Bryant remarks, “If you have a lot of work on your plate, you can redistribute the work, which is super useful.”

Bryant also says the UROP gave her new insight into American government and finance. “I just really wasn’t aware of how the energy system was regulated. I get electricity in my house, and that’s it. It’s really exciting to have that insight into how that system works and how it plays into the larger economy.”

Garcia says the lessons he’s learned about utility lobbying and regulation are helping him decide his next career steps. “I’m maybe going into public policy or political science, so I feel like having exposure to this type of work could be really helpful,” he says.

Teaming up on a UROP isn’t just valuable in terms of research and education, as Bryant discovered. In her case, talking about Hsu’s project led to a discussion about how government works and how big corporations behave. This, in turn, led to a thoughtful conversation about career options.

“We talked about careers, and it’s a conversation I haven’t had with people outside my major,” Bryant says, noting that she and her fellow UROPs discussed the trade-offs of going into well-paid jobs in industry versus focusing on a career that gives back to one’s community. “There was this whole ethical portion of the discussion,” she says. “It was pretty influential in how I think about jobs now.”

According to Shulman, this kind of experience is just what MITEI hopes to foster by sponsoring team-based undergraduate research. “I’m a big believer in serendipity,” she says. “How can we engender serendipity? You throw people together who might not otherwise have met each other.”

Cody Friesen PhD ’04 awarded $500,000 Lemelson-MIT Prize

Cody Friesen PhD ’04, an associate professor of materials science at Arizona State University and founder of both Fluidic Energy and Zero Mass Water, was awarded the 2019 $500,000 Lemelson-MIT Prize for invention. Friesen has dedicated his career to inventing solutions that address two of the biggest challenges to social and economic advancement in the developing world: access to fresh water and reliable energy. His renewable water and energy technologies help fight climate change while providing valuable resources to underserved communities.

Friesen’s first company, Fluidic Energy, was formed to commercialize and deploy the world’s first, and only, rechargeable metal-air battery, which can withstand many thousands of discharges. The technology has provided backup power during approximately 1 million long-duration outages, while simultaneously offsetting thousands of tons of carbon dioxide emissions. The batteries are currently being used as a secondary energy source on four continents at thousands of critical load sites and in dozens of microgrids. Several million people have benefited from access to reliable energy as a result of the technology. Fluidic Energy has been renamed NantEnergy, with Patrick Soon-Shiong investing significantly in the continued global expansion of the technology.

Currently, Friesen’s efforts are focused on addressing the global water crisis through his company, Zero Mass Water. Friesen invented SOURCE Hydropanels, which are solar panels that make drinking water from sunlight and air. The invention is a true leapfrog technology and can make drinking water in dry conditions with as low as 5 percent relative humidity. SOURCE has been deployed in 33 countries spanning six continents. The hydropanels are providing clean drinking water in communities, refugee camps, government offices, hotels, hospitals, schools, restaurants, and homes around the world.

“As inventors, we have a responsibility to ensure our technology serves all of humanity, not simply the elite,” says Friesen. “At the end of the day, our work is about impact, and this recognition propels us forward as we deploy SOURCE Hydropanels to change the human relationship to water across the globe.”

Friesen joins a long lineage of inventors to receive the Lemelson-MIT Prize, the largest cash prize for invention in the United States for 25 years. He will be donating his prize to a project with Conservation International to provide clean drinking water via SOURCE Hydropanels to the Bahia Hondita community in Colombia.

“Cody’s inventive spirit, fueled by his strong desire to help improve the lives of people everywhere, is an inspiring role model for future generations,” says Michael Cima, faculty director for the Lemelson-MIT Program and associate dean of innovation for the MIT School of Engineering. “Water scarcity is a prominent global issue, which Cody is combating through technology and innovation. We are excited that the use of this award will further elevate his work.”

“Cody Friesen embodies what it means to be an impact inventor,” notes Carol Dahl, executive director at the Lemelson Foundation. “His inventions are truly improving lives, take into account environmental considerations, and have become the basis for companies that impact millions of people around the world each year. We are honored to recognize Dr. Friesen as this year’s LMIT Prize winner.” 

Friesen will speak at EmTech MIT, the annual conference on emerging technologies hosted by MIT Technology Review at the MIT Media Lab on Sept. 18 at 5 p.m.

Roots of inequality traced back to Neolithic ox-drawn plows

Seven thousand years ago, societies across Eurasia began to show signs of lasting divisions between haves and have-nots. In new research published in the journal Antiquity, scientists from the University of Oxford, Bocconi University and Sante Fe Institute chart the precipitous surge of prehistoric inequality and trace its economic origins back to the adoption of ox-drawn plows.
