Climate change: heat makes sled dogs 'disappear' from Greenland

13 Oct 2022  |  terra.com.br
In Greenland, climate change is causing the ice to melt, affecting traditional sled dog use and fishing practices. The town of Ilulissat has seen a decline in sled dogs, from 5,000 to 1,800, as hunters and fishermen adapt to thinner ice and unpredictable weather. While some see new opportunities in milder winters and year-round boat fishing, concerns about the impact on the Greenland ice sheet and global sea levels persist. Scientists warn of significant sea level rise even with emission reduction efforts, and locals, including young activists, are acutely aware of the changes to their environment and way of life.

Denmark's controversial birth control plan implemented on Inuit women in Greenland

01 Oct 2022  |  es-us.noticias.yahoo.com
In the 1960s and 1970s, Danish doctors implemented a birth control program in Greenland, placing IUDs in Inuit women and girls without proper consent or explanation. Naja Lyberth and other victims have spoken out about the trauma and complications they experienced. A recent podcast revealed that up to 4,500 women, about half of Greenland's fertile female population, were affected. Denmark and Greenland have agreed to investigate the historical practices, with Danish Health Minister Magnus Heunicke acknowledging the physical and emotional pain caused. The program's intent was to limit population growth, reflecting financial motives and colonial attitudes. Greenland took control of its health policy in 1992, and the current investigation follows other controversies regarding Denmark's past relationship with Greenland.

Denmark votes to drop EU defence opt-out in 'historic' referendum

01 Jun 2022  |  bbc.co.uk
Denmark has voted to participate in EU security policy by scrapping its 30-year opt-out, with 66.9% of voters approving the change. This allows Danish troops to join EU military missions, a move Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen believes sends a strong signal amid the Ukraine conflict. The referendum saw the second-lowest turnout in Danish history at 65.8%. Denmark's decision reflects a broader Nordic reassessment of security policies following Russia's invasion of Ukraine. The vote enables Denmark to join the EU's Common Security and Defence Policy and collaborate on tackling cyber threats. The policy shift includes increased defence spending and reconsideration of foreign troop presence in Denmark. The move is part of a sweeping overhaul of security policy in the Nordic region, with Sweden and Finland also deciding to join NATO.

Denmark says sorry to children of failed experiment

09 Mar 2022  |  bbc.co.uk
Denmark's government has compensated six Inuit Greenlanders and issued a formal apology for a failed 1950s social experiment. Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen apologized to the survivors for the inhumane treatment they endured when they were sent to Denmark from Greenland to learn Danish and become 'model' Greenlanders. The children were separated from their families, lost their language, and struggled with identity issues. The Danish government settled with a payment of 250,000 Danish kroner each to the six survivors, while the other 16 involved have passed away. The experiment aimed to assimilate Greenlanders into Danish culture but resulted in mental health problems, alcohol abuse, and early deaths among the children. The issue remains significant in Greenland, affecting the relationship between Greenland and Denmark. The apology was delivered at a ceremony in Copenhagen, with Greenland's Prime Minister Mute Egede in attendance, and a further apology is expected in Greenland.

Coronavirus: Robots used to eliminate viruses in hospitals

29 Mar 2020  |  terra.com.br
Robots emitting concentrated UV-C light are being used to navigate hospital environments and disinfect by damaging the genetic material of harmful microorganisms. Demand for these robots has surged due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with significant shipments to Wuhan, China, and increased sales in Asia and Europe. The robots, such as UVD Robots and Xenex's LightStrike, have not been specifically tested against the new coronavirus, but experts believe they are effective based on their ability to kill similar viruses. Challenges include ensuring direct UV exposure on surfaces and the acceptance of robotic technology in hospitals. Chinese robotics companies have innovated in response to the coronavirus, with YouiBot adapting its technology for disinfection purposes. The pandemic has forced the industry to find new solutions, despite difficulties in obtaining parts due to factory closures and restrictions.

Coronavirus: Robots used to kill viruses in hospitals

29 Mar 2020  |  bbc.com
The demand for UV-C light disinfection robots has surged due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with companies like UVD Robots and Xenex experiencing increased orders from countries like China and Italy. These robots, which use concentrated UV-C light to kill microorganisms, are being deployed in hospitals to reduce the risk of infections. While there is confidence in their effectiveness against coronaviruses similar to SARS and MERS, no specific tests have been conducted for the new coronavirus. The technology, which requires areas to be manually cleaned before UV treatment, is not a standalone solution but provides an additional line of defense. The outbreak has spurred innovation in robotics, with companies like YouiBot quickly adapting their technology to meet the new demand for disinfection.
