MUNDO NOVELERO
Argentina llora la muerte de Romina Yan, estrella de 'Chiquititas'


Súbita.

Así fue la muerte de la joven y querida actriz romina Yan, conocida por su estelar en la famosa serie argentina 'Chiquititas', sucedida la tarde de ayer en un hospital de Buenos Aires.

Romina, quien tenía 36 años, sufrió un paro cardiaco momentos después de hacer una rutina de ejercicios en un gimansio de la capital.

Los primeros reportes indican que Romina fue trasladada por un amigo cercano al Hospital Central de San Isidro, donde aparentemente llegó sin vida. Por lo publicado por varios medios, los médicos trataron sin éxito de revivirla durante 40 minutos.

La muerte de Romina tiene consternado al país entero. Estrellas argeninas como Susana Giménez y Marcello Tinelli ya se acercaron a la familia de Romina para expresar su pésame.

El cantante Diego Torres escribió en twitter "Me acabo de enterar lo de Romina Yan y no lo puedo creer! Mi más sentido pésame a Gustavo, Cris, Tomás, su marido y sus hijos. Qué tristeza!!".

Romina Yankelevich, como era su nombre depila, era hija de los productores artísticos Cris Morena y Gustavo Yankelevich. Romina dejó tres hijos y a su esposo Darío Giordano.

La primera aparición de Romina Yan en la televisión argentina fue en 1991, como una bailarina en un programa llamado "Jugate conmigo". Dos años después hizo su debut como actriz televisiva.

A fines del 94, su madre crea "Chiquititas", telenovela que la haría famosa en varios países de América latina y del mundo, como Rusia e Israel.

En 2002 fue convocada por Disney Channel para conducir el show infantil Playhouse Disney, en Argentina.

Durante 2007, Yan trabajó en la última comedia romántica de Cris Morena, "Bella & bestia", y en 2009 fue protagonista de la también famosa tira "Casi angeles".

Entre los planes artísticos de Romina estaba el de regresar la televisión con un seriado infantil.

By MICHAEL WARREN, Associated Press Writer Michael Warren, Associated Press Writer – 10 mins ago
SAN JOSE MINE, Chile – Chile's mining minister says a paramedic will begin descending to start the rescue of 33 trapped miners by about 10 p.m. — two hours later than what President Sebastian Pinera had announced.

Mining Minister Laurence Golborne says that's because cables and equipment need to be attached to the capsule that will carry the men. Then it will be lowered with a rescue worker inside, then raised again, and only when everything is ready will the paramedic go down to prepare the men below. And only then can the first miner be pulled to safety.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

SAN JOSE MINE, Chile (AP) — Rescuers prepared to lower two paramedics almost a half-mile into a collapsed mine Tuesday, the precursor to fresh air and freedom for 33 men trapped for 69 days. No one in history has been trapped underground so long and survived.

"We made a promise to never surrender, and we kept it," President Sebastian Pinera said as he waited to greet the miners, whose endurance and unity captivated the world as the Chilean government meticulously prepared their rescue.

Pinera said the rescue would begin just before 8 p.m. local time (7 p.m. EDT). Before the first miner is brought up in a custom-made capsule, two rescuers — a mine rescue expert and a Navy special forces paramedic — will be lowered to the men to prepare them for the trip. Another two-man team will go down as well, working in shifts until they're all out, a process expected take as much as 36 hours.

Chile has taken extensive precautions to ensure the miners' health and privacy, using a screen to block the top of the shaft from more than 1,000 journalists at the scene.

The miners will be ushered through an inflatable tunnel, like those used in sports stadiums, to an ambulance for a trip of several hundred yards (meters) to a triage station for an immediate medical check. They will gather with a few family members, in an area also closed to the media, before being transported by helicopter to a hospital.

Each ride up the shaft is expected to take about 20 minutes, and authorities expect they will be able to haul up roughly one miner per hour. When the last man surfaces, it promises to end a national crisis that began when 700,000 tons of rock collapsed on Aug. 5, sealing the miners into the lower reaches of the gold and copper mine.

The only media allowed to record them coming out of the shaft will be a government photographer and Chile's state television channel, whose live broadcast will be delayed by 30 seconds or more to prevent the release of anything unexpected.

The worst technical problem that could happen, rescue coordinator Andre Sougarett told The Associated Press, is that "a rock could fall," potentially jamming the capsule partway up the shaft. But test rides suggest the ride up will be smooth.

Panic attacks are the rescuers' biggest concern. The miners will not be sedated — they need to be alert in case something goes wrong. If a miner must get out more quickly, rescuers will accelerate the capsule to a maximum 3 meters per second, Health Minister Jaime Manalich said.

The rescue attempt is risky simply because no one else has ever tried to extract miners from such depths, Davitt McAteer, who directed the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration during the Clinton administration. A miner could get claustrophobic and do something that damages the capsule. Or a rock could fall and wedge it in the shaft. Or the cable could get hung up. Or the rig that pulls the cable could overheat.

"You can be good and you can be lucky. And they've been good and lucky," McAteer told the AP. "Knock on wood that this luck holds out for the next 33 hours."

Mining Minister Laurence Golborne, whose management of the crisis has made him a media star in Chile, said authorities had already thought of everything.

"There is no need to try to start guessing what could go wrong. We have done that job," Golborne said. "We have hundreds of different contingencies."

As for the miners, "It remains a paradox — they're actually much more relaxed than we are," Manalich said.

Rescuers finished reinforcing the top of the 2,041-foot (622-meter) escape shaft early Monday, and the 13-foot (four-meter) tall capsule descended flawlessly in test runs. The white, blue and red capsule — the biggest of three built by Chilean navy engineers — was named Phoenix I for the mythical bird that rises from ashes.

The miners were to be closely monitored from the moment they're strapped into the claustrophobic steel tube to be hauled up the smooth-walled tunnel. They were given a special high-calorie liquid diet prepared and donated by NASA, designed to keep them from vomiting as the rescue capsule rotates 10 to 12 times through curves in the 28-inch-diameter escape hole.

Engineers inserted steel piping at the top of the shaft. They stopped short of initial plans for the sleeve after it became jammed during a probe of the curved top of the hole, which is angled 11 degrees off vertical at its top before plunging like a waterfall. Drillers had to curve the shaft so that it would pass through "virgin" rock, narrowly avoiding collapsed areas and underground open spaces in the overexploited mine, which had operated since 1885.

A small video camera is in the escape capsule, trained on each miner's face for panic attacks. The miners will wear oxygen masks and have two-way voice communication.

Their pulse, skin temperature and respiration rate will be constantly measured through a biomonitor around their abdomens. To prevent blood clotting from the quick ascent, they took aspirin and will wear compression socks.

The miners will also wear sweaters because they'll experience a shift in climate from about 90 degrees Fahrenheit underground to temperatures hovering near freezing after night falls. Those coming out during daylight hours will wear sunglasses.

Seconds before each miner surfaces, an ambulance-like siren will sound and a light will flash for a full minute. Officials are calling this the Genesis alarm, meant simply to alert doctors that a miner is arriving.

Many steps have been taken to protect the emerging miners from the media. Photographers and camera operators will be able to see light but little more from a platform set up more than 300 feet (90 meters) away.

After initial medical checks and visits with family members selected by the miners, the men will be airlifted to the regional hospital in Copiapo, roughly a 10-minute ride away. Two floors have been prepared where the miners will receive physical and psychological exams and be kept under observation in a ward as dark as a movie theater.

Chilean air force Lt. Col. Aldo Carbone, the choppers' squadron commander, said the pilots have night-vision goggles but will not fly unless it is clear of the notoriously thick Pacific Ocean fog that rolls in at night. Night traffic on the mine road was banned as a precaution to keep headlights from interfering with the night-vision goggles, and to keep the road clear for ambulances should they be necessary.

Families were urged to wait and prepare to greet the miners at home after a 48-hour hospital stay. Manalich also said that no cameras or interviews will be allowed until the miners are released, unless the miners expressly desire it.

Officials have drawn up a secret list of which miners should come out first, but the order could change after paramedics and a mining expert first descend in the capsule to evaluate the men. First out will be the four miners best able to handle any difficulties and tell their comrades what to expect. Then, the 10 who are weakest or suffer from hypertension, diabetes, dental and respiratory infections and skin lesions from the mine's oppressive humidity.

The first miner to be rescued will be Florencio Avalos, according to his mother, Maria Silva, and uncle Alberto Avalos, who said Pinera told them that.

The last miner out, according the list, will be shift foreman Luiz Urzua, whose leadership was credited for the miners' survival during the 17 days when they were utterly closed off from the outside world. The men stretched an emergency food supply meant to last just 48 hours by taking tiny sips of milk and bites of tuna fish every other day.

Several of Urzua's relatives told the AP that he was last on the list, speaking on condition of anonymity to avoid upsetting government officials.

"He's a very good guy — he keeps everybody's spirits up and is so responsible — he's going to see this through to the end," said his neighbor Angelica Vicencio, who has led a nightly vigil outside the Urzua home in Copiapo.

The government has promised that its care of the miners won't end for six months at least — not until they can be sure that each miner has readjusted.

Psychiatrists and other experts in surviving extreme situations predict their lives will be anything but normal.

Since Aug. 22, when a narrow bore hole broke through to their refuge and the miners stunned the world with a note, scrawled in red pen, that announced their survival, these families' lives have been exposed in ways they never imagined. Miners had to describe their physical and mental health in minute detail with teams of doctors and psychologists. And in some cases, when both wives and lovers claimed the same man, everyone involved had to face the consequences.

By the time of the rescue, nerves were beyond frayed outside the mine in "Camp Hope," where miners' families and reporters from all over the world slept side by side in tents and campers, enduring the baking days and frigid nights of the desolate Atacama desert.

Alberto Iturra, chief of the psychology team, told the families to go home, get some rest, and prepare to reunite in several days.

"I explained to the families that the only way one can receive someone is to first be home to open the door," Iturra said.

From http://www.zetatalk.com/newsletr/issue210.htm  today.

[start quote]
Is the S American Plate starting to roll? The city of Barranquilla [Colombia] is on the border between the Caribbean Plate and the S American Plate, and experienced horrific landslides October 27, 2010.

What is perhaps more significant are the moaning and grinding sounds the citizens of Barranquilla are reportedly hearing. Per the Zetas, this is what would be heard as the S America Plate grinds over the Caribbean Plate, as presented in Issue 207 of this newsletter.

On the other side of the Caribbean Plate, there also evidence of pressure on the Caribbean Plate.



Hot Temperatures Could Mean Worst Caribbean Coral Die-Off in History
October 22, 2010
http://www.treehugger.com/files/2010/10/hot-temperatures
    Scientists show that perhaps this year will be the worst in recorded history for corals in the Caribbean, even worse than the devastation wrought in 2005 when 80% of corals were bleached and 40% died. This graphic from NOAA shows that ocean temperatures in the Carribean in 2010 are higher than in 2005, which could be dire news for the health of reefs.

The plates are heating up, as noted by an astute observer, just where pressure on the colliding plates would occur. The steady tearing apart of the Atlantic is forcing the S America Plate at this point to push under the Caribbean Plate. This is notably a volcanic region. At this point on the Caribbean Plate there is pressure, as the plate is locked against the Cocos Plate to the west and cannot easily move toward the west, and the hump of the S American Plate creates conflict for any sliding past S America at this point too.



Observation: you will see that the high ocean temperatures correspond exactly to the eastern edge of the Caribbean tectonic plate and the southern "concave notch" in the Caribbean tectonic plate - two places where the Mid-Atlantic Ridge push to the west would hit and the torque-rotation-toward-west of the of the South American tectonic plate would push and squeeze.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caribbean_Plate
    The eastern boundary is a subduction zone where oceanic crust of the North American Plate is being subducted under the Caribbean Plate. Subduction forms the volcanic islands of the Lesser Antilles Volcanic Arc from the Virgin Islands in the north to the islands off the coast of Venezuela in the south. Along the geologically complex southern boundary, the Caribbean Plate interacts with the South American Plate forming Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago (all on the Caribbean Plate), and islands off the coast of Venezuela (including the Leeward Antilles) and Colombia.

The Zetas have stated that the S America Roll will occur after the disaster in Indonesia, where the tongue holding Indonesia sinks. And as with the Indonesia disaster, the S America roll will happen suddenly.

ZetaTalk Prediction 10/9/2010: S America is showing signs of a roll to the west. Explosions on islands just to the north of the S American Plate occurred recently, on Bonaire and Trinidad-Tobago, and the Andes are regularly being pummeled. There is a relationship. As the Indo-Australia Plate lifts and slides, this allows the Pacific plates to shift west, which allows S America to shift west also.

Well I can say for a fact the plates on my side have been groaning since yesterday and loudly plus of course the quakes. Even Playas de Rosarito again...

OMG Susan can you actually hear the sounds, which could be the plates grinding?

Yes we do, sounds like a HUGE semi, except there are none around here, then comes the shuddering, odd tho, because most of the time they don't register any siesmic activity on the charts. But we sure feel them.
