  • Turkey lira crisis highlights emerging currencies plight

    Golocal247.com news

    Much of the Turkish lira's plight may be homegrown, but it shares some key vulnerabilities with other emerging countries whose currencies are now also plunging as fear of contagion spreads, analysts say. South Africa, Argentina, Mexico, Brazil and Russia have all seen their currencies slip over the past week because, like Turkey, they remain heavily dependent on foreign capital, especially the dollar. "This is a typical 'flight to quality' move from foreign investors out of emerging markets to safer, developed countries," Agathe Demarais, lead Turkey analyst at the Economist Intelligence Unit, told AFP.

  • The website for Vermont's 14-year-old gubernatorial candidate has convinced me he's fit for the job

    Golocal247.com news

    Ethan Sonneborn is running for governor of Vermont. He's also 14 years old. This is perfectly legal, which he explains on his very adorable and surprisingly professional website. All that's required for someone to run for governor in Vermont is that they have lived in the state for a minimum of four years. For the skeptics, a link to the Vermont constitution is also provided on Sonneborn's website. Sonneborn, who is a Democrat, also runs down the issues that are important to him, such as LGBTQ rights, healthcare for all, the environment, economy, and education. Image: screengrab/ethansonneborn.comYou'll also find a YouTube video of Sonneborn delivering a speech that he gave this January, when he announced his campaign. He discusses his love of dogs, basketball, fishing — and his intention to run for governor. Maybe I'm just super burned out and disillusioned from the brutal political news cycle, but Sonneborn has me convinced he's the right person for the job. Sure he's not old enough to vote himself, but he believes in pushing a carbon emissions tax, so that's something? His website doesn't give a super-detailed explanation of how he's going to accomplish everything he stands for, but at least he stands for something. He's charming and he gives me hope for the future, so I'm choosing to believe in him. Vermont's Democratic primary is on Tuesday, if Sonneborn wins he'll be — you guessed it — the youngest governor in Vermont's history.

China says that Xinjiang faces a serious threat from Islamist militants and separatists who plot attacks and stir up tensions between the mostly Muslim Uighur minority who call the region home and the ethnic Han Chinese majority. Gay McDougall, a panel member, said on Friday it had received many credible reports that 1 million ethnic Uighurs were held in what resembles a "massive internment camp that is shrouded in secrecy, a sort of no rights zone".

  • Hundreds of 'sea potatoes' have washed up on a beach in Cornwall

    Golocal247.com news

    Yes, you read that correctly. Sea potatoes are a real thing, and they have washed up by the hundreds on Penzance beach in Cornwall, UK, over the last few days.  SEE ALSO: New dolphin-whale hybrid sea creature is the spawn of an unholy union According to the BBC, the beach at Wherrytown in Penzance was covered in small, mysterious orb-shaped creatures from the sea. A local resident, Rosie Hendricks, told the BBC she saw "odd-looking" creatures on the beach while out with her family. "I wasn't sure what they were," Hendricks said.  I saw the sea potatoes this morning on #Penzance beach, Poppy thought they were worth investigating pic.twitter.com/cZ2hWtPR02 — Toni Turner (@ToniTurnerBiz) August 11, 2018 So, what exactly is a "sea potato"? Mashable spoke to Martin Attrill — professor of marine ecology at University of Plymouth — to find out precisely what these so-called "potatoes" are and why they all chose to congregate on the south coast of England. Hundreds of Sea Potatoes washed up at Wherrytown in #Penzance https://t.co/3sdinA9MSR pic.twitter.com/IcmA0oT1T0 — Cornwall/Kernow (@CornwaII) August 11, 2018 "Sea Potatoes (a.k.a. Echinocardium cordatum) are burrowing sea urchins," Attrill told Mashable. "They are cousins of the spiny and spiky ones you see on rocks and also related to starfish." And according to Attrill, it's not out of the ordinary for large groups of sea creatures to wash ashore. "Wrecks of marine organisms are not uncommon – huge numbers of crabs and lobsters were washed up on the east coast last winter. But the exact cause is not completely certain. Often a cause can be unusual storms that impact at a time of year when they aren’t often expected," says Attrill.  Per the Cornwall Wildlife Trust, these little critters are also known as "heart urchins" because of their "distinctive shape."  "This medium-sized sea-urchin is densely covered in fine, beige spines, giving it a hairy appearance," reads a description on the trust's website. "The Sea Potato lives buried in up to 15cm of muddy and sandy sediments from the shore to 200 metres deep." Apparently they can be found on "sandy and muddy shores" on UK coasts.  Still a bit weirded out by the funny looking sea spuds? We asked professor Attrill to provide some fun facts about them. "If you look at their shell (called a test) you can see a five pointed star pattern that gives away their relationship with starfish!" says Attrill.  "Like all echinoderms (that just means “spiny skin”) they have odd tube feet – an internal hydraulic system where water power can move lots of little feet in and out. The sea potato uses these tube feet to feed off organic matter in the sediment," Attrill continues. That actually is fun. Not as funny as the name, though.  WATCH: Meet the aquatic WALL-E that could help clean our oceans
