Pretty Sick have released their debut album. Makes Me Sick, Makes Me Smile is the start of a new chapter for the New York-originated, London-based project helmed by Sabrina Fuentes. It’s their first set of songs recorded since Fuentes’ relocation and a departure from the dualistic themes of their first two EPs, 2020’s Deep Divine, and its 2021 follow-up, Come Down, which was first introduced by a song called “Devil In Me.”

Make Me Sick’s 10th track, “Self Fulfilling Prophecy,” however, is a return to their earlier works’ religious bent (as is middle-album cut “Heaven”). It starts off with a string interpolation of the hook to Beach House’s “Space Song” that soon gives way to a simple descending bass scale, which in turn becomes a canvas for Fuentes’ nostalgic lament. “Miss gettin’ high for fun / Miss gettin’ drunk for free,” she sings with a sense of helpless abandon. “If you think I’m pretty / You can pay to look at me.” The song remains in this mode for most of its four-minute run time, with Fuentes delivering such lyrical gems as “the age of nepotism and forget-ism.”

In its final 90 seconds, however, she kicks into power ballad mode, and the rest of her band follow suit. “I would stop this moment forever / But once I spent some time with you I realized I’m no better,” she sings as the weight of the instrumental crashes around her. “’Cause once you sold your soul you found there’s nothing to hold onto / You’re untethered to Earth, I’m untethered to you.”

Jean Dawson shares new song “SICK OF IT*” with video
It’s the fourth single from his forthcoming album CHAOS NOW*

By Raphael Helfand

September 30, 2022

Jean Dawson’s second LP, CHAOS NOW*, arrives next Friday, October 7. The project is a follow-up to 2020’s Pixel Bath, but if its singles are any indication, it’s a vastly different record. Dawson has always hopped genres, straddling the line between hip-hop and alt rock as well as anyone. But the new songs find him exploring heavier territory, both sonically and thematically.

“SICK OF IT*” is no exception. The fourth solo offering on a tracklist that includes features from Isaiah Rashad, Earl Sweatshirt, and George Clanton, it’s 135 seconds of pogo-worthy, self-destructive rage. “I’m a freak, I’m a creep, I’m a shithead clown,” Dawson sing-screams early on over a sped-up post-punk guitar lick and a frantic drum line that scrambles to keep pace. “I’m a little spec of nothing, I can promise, I can barely even breathe,” he continues later with the urgency of someone dedicated to burning out before he fades away.

The new song arrives behind “PORN ACTING*” — released back in February, long before CHAOS NOW* was officially announced — as well as August lead single “THREE HEADS*” and last week’s “PIRATE RADIO*.” It comes with a Bradley J. Calder-directed visual treatment full of quick cuts and flashing on-screen lyrics. Watch it above.

Mavi has shared the second single from his forthcoming sophomore LP. Laughing so Hard, It Hurts is due out October 14, and today’s track, “Doves,” is the record’s second offering, arriving two behind its lead single, “Baking Soda.”

On the new song, the North Carolina-born emcee and current Howard University neuroscience major gets cerebral, his mind-bending flow completely at ease over a Dylvinci beat that feels both tranquil and anxious, due to the dissidence between its rushed drum line and its relaxed, aqueous synths. “High as fuck, its close to consistent, my mental / I been drinkin’ under the table, I thought you quit fool,” he raps early on, in dialogue with himself. “I don’t think you know ‘bout reverence and ridicule / I don’t think you know bout theft as founding principle.”

Mavi dropped his stunning debut LP, Let the Sun Talk, in 2019 and spoke to The FADER’s Brandon Callender about its theme of Black liberation. Last year, he followed it up with the End of the Earth EP, and he’s since dropped a string of standalone singles.

Song You Need: ICYTWAT’s chilling “Give Her Soul”

Song You Need: ICYTWAT’s chilling “Give Her Soul”
“It’s lonely at the top, I’m tryna bring the bros the with me.”

The FADER’s “Songs You Need” are the tracks we can’t stop playing. Check back every day for new music and follow along on our Spotify playlist.

ICYTWAT’s music feels like it’s gone through several different life cycles. While his essential remixes and production from the mid-2010s live on, the Chicago producer has gone on to evolve linearly—the hazy, nostalgic sounds he came up on have grown into tremorous and sludgy transmissions from outer space. And as a rapper, ICYTWAT’s goal is to encode messages in those transmissions that are meant to play in your head like on last year’s “Off Tha Leash!,” where his hypnotic chant raps swirl around like thunder clouds.

ADVERTISEMENT

“Give Her Soul,” a chilling cut from his new EP Siddhi World, is in constant motion. Every few measures, the beat takes a sharp left turn that you can never fully prepare for. It sounds like speeding through a city’s streets late at night. His bouncy, breathless cadences and creeping flow make his verses coil up on themselves like rattlesnakes. “Stop tryna gas them niggas up, you know they tank empty / You might just level up if you just play yo role different nigga,” he raps. When he takes a breather for the hook, it feels like you just got done watching a marathon. Rap rarely sounds this stressful.

Trevor Noah has announced that he is to step down as host of The Daily Show. Noah took over the host spot from Jon Stewart in 2015 with the comedian stating that he wants to exit in order to spend more time on the road doing standup. The news was announced by Noah during a taping of Thursday night’s Daily Show and shared online. Check out his speech below.

“I spent two years in my apartment [during Covid], not on the road,” Noah told those who attended the taping. “Standup was done, and when I got back out there again, I realised that there’s another part of my life that I want to carry on exploring.”

He added: “I found myself thinking throughout the time of everything we’ve gone through. The Trump presidency, the pandemic, just the journey, more pandemic and I realize that after the seven years, my time is up. We have laughed together, we have cried together. But after seven years, I feel like it’s time.”

As a comedian Jaboukie Young-White has made his name skewering brands online and starring as a de facto young person on TV series including Only Murders In The Building and The Daily Show. His brand is the arch, wise millenial so a pivot to the more earnest musical landscape comes as a surprise. The sleazy and provocative “BBC,” however, isn’t a mere grab for multi-hyphenate status as much as it is extension of his playful and boundary-pushing persona.

ADVERTISEMENT

Jaboukie is dead serious about “BBC” (well as serious as you can be while rapping about “bad bitch coochie” at least) Over a four on the floor beat and gargantuan bassline he spits confidence-boosting bars and acts as a conduit between the listener and the dancefloor. There’s some fun wordplay (“vacay no Cali no Uchis”) along the way and a self-directed video that taps into the DIY spirit of a track that began as a demo around his kitchen table a few years ago.

“BBC” isn’t offering up a comic take on rap a la fellow standup Zack Fox. Trying to think of a direct comparison leads in only one direction. Chaotic online presence? Check. X-rated raps? Check. Bloghouse-era beats? Check check check. Is Jaboukie, whisper it, the new Azealia Banks?

Ed Sheeran will face jury trial in “Let’s Get It On” plagiarism lawsuit

Ed Sheeran will face jury trial in “Let’s Get It On” plagiarism lawsuit
Structured Asset Sales, a company with an ownership stake in Gaye’s 1973 hit, launched the lawsuit against Sheeran in 2018.

A Manhattan federal judge has ruled that Ed Sheeran must face a jury trial in a 2018 plagiarism lawsuit, Billboard reports. The suit alleges that the English singer plagiarized portions of Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” for the song “Thinking Out Loud.” Sheeran’s song peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2014 and remained on the chart for 51 weeks.

ADVERTISEMENT

The lawsuit was launched by Structured Asset Sales, a company with a one-third ownership stake in the copyrights of Ed Townsend, a co-writer of Gaye’s 1973 song (Townsend’s heirs have reportedly filed a separate plagiarism lawsuit against Sheeran). Sheeran is accused of lifting a chord progression and harmonic rhythm from Gaye’s track – his attorneys have said that the contested elements appear too frequently in other songs for them to be the property of Structured Asset Sales.

In his ruling on Thursday, Judge Stanton said the disagreement would have to be sorted out in front of a jury. He wrote in his ruling: “There is no bright-line rule that the combination of two unprotectable elements is insufficiently numerous to constitute an original work. A work may be copyrightable even though it is entirely a compilation of unprotectable elements.” No court date has been set.

ADVERTISEMENT

In April of this year, Sheeran successfully defeated a similar lawsuit in a U.K. court. A musician named Sami Chokri accused Sheeran of plagiarizing his song “Oh I” in the creation of his 2015 hit “Shape Of You.” The song’s co-writer John McDaid and producer Steven McCutcheon were also named in the suit.

Judge Antony Zacaroli ruled that Sheeran had “neither deliberately nor subconsciously copied” Chokri’s song; soon after the ruling, Sheeran issued a statement calling the suit “baseless.” He wrote: “Our message to songwriters everywhere is: Please support each other. Be kind to one another. Let’s continue to cultivate a spirit of community and creativity.”

Soft Crash, the Berlin-based electronic duo of Phase Fatale and Pablo Bozzi, will share their first collaborative LP next month. Your Last Everything is due out October 28 via BITE, the label co-founded by Fatale (the Berghain resident born Hayden Payne stateside). Together with Bozzi — an Italian-French producer who cut his teeth on the harpsichord at the National Conservatory of Toulouse and went on to pioneer a distinctive style dubbed Italo Bozzi Music (a fusion of Italo disco and electric body music) by his fans — he announced the record in late August with the release of its lead single, “Artificial Tears.”

ADVERTISEMENT

That track was an instant EBM classic, its seething synths battened by booming drums that make it nearly impossible to stay still while listening. But their new song, “Your Last Everything (Soft Crash Angel),” is brought to even greater heights by vocals from the genre’s Quebecois queen, Marie Davidson. A digital bonus cut, it’s the perfect song to cap off a project that’s tailor made to accompany the end times, a hype track for a short ride to purgatory.

“Terminate yourself to be born again,” Davidson monotones as new wave synths build around her. “I’ll teach you the way, if you dare.” The song quickly explodes into a frenzied dance-floor anthem, with Davidson acting as our spiritual guide through the chaos.

Later, her monologue becomes menacing. “I will softly break you, till you can’t take it anymore,” she whispers in a rare moment of calm in the eye of maelstrom. “I ain’t no angel.”

Last December, Drakeo The Ruler was stabbed to death at a hip-hop festival in Los Angeles. The rapper seemed poised to break out from the west coast underground that he’d found so much success in – he’d even landed a Drake feature on the single “Talk To Me“ from his tape The Truth Hurts. Drakeo’s death was tragic, and he left behind a lot of unreleased recorded music to reinforce the talent that was snuffed out. Today, his estate shares his first posthumous project, Keep The Truth Alive.

ADVERTISEMENT

The 18-track collection is mostly bite-sized songs and skits, but there are no half-measures in Drakeo’s lyrics. It catalogs his idiosyncratic ability to shift between keen humor, grim and paranoid tales of street life, and the facts of his luxurious surroundings that are as detailed as a Rolls-Royce. It makes the project a success, even if it has the inevitable unfinished feeling that many posthumous records do. The only feature is Ralphy the Plug, Drakeo’s brother and fellow Stinc Team leader. who shows up on two songs.

In 2021, prior to his death, Drakeo shared the projects Ain’t That The Truth and So Cold I Did Em 2. His album Thank You For Using GTL was one of our favorites of 2020. Members of Drakeo’s family including Ralphy the Plug are filing two separate lawsuits against Live Nation, the organizer behind the festival where Drakeo was killed.

On this week’s episode of NPR’s The Limits With Jay Williams, music mogul Scooter Braun joined the former NBA star — and his longtime friend — to discuss his life and career. During the interview, Williams brought up about Braun’s recent conflict with Taylor Swift, whose catalog he acquired in 2019 from her former label, Big Machine. Swift referred to the acquisition as her “worst-case scenario” at the time and said she was “sad and grossed out” by the way it had been handled in an impassioned Tumblr post. Shortly thereafter, she decided to re-record her early albums in order to reclaim ownership over them.

“When you bought the rights to Taylor Swift’s masters, it turned into a really big thing,” Williams said in the new interview, somewhat understating a scenario that Braun has said led to multiple death threats being aimed at him and his family after Swift directed her fans to contact Braun and former Big Machine owner Scott Borchetta about the deal. “If you could go back in time… Would you have handled it differently?”

“Yes, I would’ve. I learned an important lesson from that,” Braun responded. “I think a lot of things got lost in translation. I think that when you have a conflict with someone, it’s very hard to resolve it if you’re not willing to have a conversation. So the regret I have there is that I made the assumption that everyone, once the deal was done, was going to have a conversation with me, see my intent, see my character, and say ‘Great, let’s be in business together.’ I made that assumption with people that I didn’t know, and I learned… that I can never make that assumption again.

“In any conflict, you can say, ‘I didn’t do anything, It’s their fault!,’” he went on. “And you could be right, you could be justified. You could say, ‘This is unfair, I’m being treated unfairly,’ or you can say, ‘OK, I’m being treated unfairly. I don’t like how this is feeling. I can’t fix this, so how am I going to look at it and learn from it?’

“I didn’t appreciate how that all went down. I thought it was unfair. But I also understand, from the other side, they probably felt it was unfair, too. So I choose to look at it as a learning lesson, a growing lesson, and I wish everyone involved well. And I’m rooting for everyone to win because I don’t believe in rooting for people to lose.”

Swift’s claims that Braun subjected her to “incessant, manipulative bullying… for years,” and that he and Borschetta were holding her music hostage to stop her from re-recording it, were not addressed in the interview. His statement of regret wasn’t exactly the apology Swift and her fandom may have been hoping for, but it’s probably the closest they’ll get to one.

Since 2019, Swift has released three LPs of new music, as well as re-recordings of her second and third studio albums, Fearless and Red, as promised. Her next project, Midnights, is due out October 21.

Last month, Arima Ederra returned with the wistful “Portals,” her first musical offering since 2018. On that song, the Los Angeles-based singer found herself stunned by the hypnotizing eyes of a friend she’s caught feelings for, wondering about the right time to say something, or, potentially worse, if there’ll ever be a right time at all. While the song aches with unrequited love, Ederra’s serene voice preserves a small piece of faith. It’s a preview of her upcoming album An Orange Colored Day, which is out on October 7. Alongside the announcement comes a new single titled “Steel Wing.”

Anchored by a simple drum pattern and simmering guitar riff, “Steel Wing” feels as hopeful as the start of a new day. Compared to “Portals,” her voice is unrestrained and bright—swaying melodies and belted notes are delivered with starry-eyed optimism and steadfast resolve. Her voice floats above the sun-baked groove. When a booming voice asks “What if trouble’s coming?” her response leaves zero ambiguities: “Imma fight before I weep.” Her words only grown emboldened by the hook’s conversational format. When she describes herself as a “bird with a steel wing,” it doesn’t come off as escapist fantasy—it feels more like she’s inviting others to come and get fitted for their own set of gliders. Arima Ederra wants everyone to feel free.

Brenda Wireko Mensah has achieved a cold fusion of the catwalk to the mic. Her love of fashion trickles down from her stage name, Bree Runway, to her bars, which are always peppered with at least a few designer brags. Raised by Ghanaian parents on a Hackney, London block dubbed “murder mile,” she’s now risen to the peak of haute couture, and she sees no reason to be humble about it. Whether you’re a fan or a hater of her cocky persona, you’d be unwise not to respect it.

Her new single, “THAT GIRL,” is an unreserved flex on anyone less fashionable than she — which, if we’re being honest, is all of us. “I already been that girl,” she reminds us five times across three choruses before the song begins in earnest, her pummeling approach emphasized by a beat from PC Music signee Easyfun that’s entirely 808 kicks and loud, rhythmic breathing for the two-minute track’s first 35 seconds. “Speechless, he don’t know what to say / My body look good in that new Gaultier,” she continues in verse one. “Switch up the swag four times in a day / It’s just like whatever.”

At this point, Easyfun introduces a few house chords into the mix, followed by some by some blistering sub bass that dissipates as the synth settles in. “My face stunning, its top tier / Been cold, where’s my Moncler?” she asks later as the drums drop out for a moment. “Sickening body, it’s unfair / I can pronounce everything I wear.”

The track’s video treatment, directed by Ruth Hogben (best known as Lady Gaga’s visual muse) finds Bree rotating through a flurry of flawless fits as she raps, dances, and self-duplicates for the camera. Watch it above.

How can a mobilized person suspend his enforcement proceedings?

Plot Partial mobilization in Russia

Conscription often becomes a problem for Russians whose debts are already taken care of by bailiffs, — a serviceman's income may change dramatically, and deductions from the card will continue to be made in the usual amount. On September 28, the FSSP published clarifications in its official Telegram channel, which will be another good news in the treasury of preferences for the mobilized. What the Freeze Law Says enforcement proceedings and what explanations were given by bailiffs, — in the material aif.ru.

What did the FSSP say about the mobilized debtors? 

The agency published a message on its official Telegram channel stating that in respect of mobilized Russians with debts that have reached the stage of enforcement proceedings, the collection process will be suspended for the period of military service. 

What does the law say about the suspension of enforcement proceedings for military personnel? 

In Art. 40 of the Federal Law “On Enforcement Proceedings” the bailiff has the right to suspend enforcement proceedings in a declarative manner if the debtor is doing military service by conscription. Since earlier it was not necessary to interpret what “by call” means, — In addition to compulsory military service, there was only contract service, which was not subject to this article, the FSSP explained that the rules also apply to Russians who are subject to conscription for military service for mobilization in accordance with the Federal Law “On mobilization training and mobilization in Russian Federation».

What should be done to suspend debt collection?

By law, nothing happens automatically — a debtor called up for military service must write an application to the FSSP with a request to suspend enforcement proceedings, attaching documents confirming the reason. deductions right at the recruiting station — reception points for employees of the compulsory enforcement service will be organized there. 

What to do if you haven't submitted an application to the military registration and enlistment office?

Interaction between the Federal Bailiff Service and the Ministry of Defense on ensuring the rights of mobilized debtors — an exception to the rule: this order was introduced only for the duration of mobilization. Given that the suspension of enforcement proceedings for conscripts — a permanent rule enshrined in the law, there are other ways to contact the bailiff-executor:

Climatologist: warming could cause regular autumn hurricanes in Russia

Global warming, which has caused frequent spring hurricanes in Russia, can lead to regular autumn hurricanes, said climatologist Alexander Rodin to Gazeta.ru.

"Spring hurricanes have become practically the climatic norm in central Russia. And, perhaps, there will be regular autumn hurricanes, also associated with the restructuring of atmospheric currents. This, by the way, may be directly related to the warming of the Arctic», — he noted.

Also, climate change has led to steady heat waves that can last in any region for months and provoke natural fires.

Gift bag. What is included in the set for mobilized in Moscow

Plot Partial mobilization in Russia

Aif.ru correspondents visited a temporary mobilization center deployed in the Museum of Moscow, talked to the military commissar and guys who will soon leave for a military unit.

Military Commissar of the Zamoskvoretsky District of the Central Administrative District Alexey Buyanov:

“These gift sets from the government of Moscow are in clothing warehouses of mobilization points throughout the capital. The kit includes everything you need. Even if the partial mobilization took the guy by surprise, he leaves us fully equipped (the size range is presented in full). In addition, we give everyone dry rations so that the mobilized are fed for the time of the road to the military unit and registration in the unit. I want to emphasize that this is a gift from the government of Moscow, and at the meeting point of personnel in the military unit everyone will receive a basic list of things according to the norms of the Ministry of Defense — from a needle and thread to outerwear».

While the military commissar talks about the city recruitment and emphasizes that the backpack is not standard, but increased, literally a couple of meters from us youth receive the same sets for young people. Clothes and shoes are tried on here. Some people stay in issued suits and give civilian clothes to their relatives, others carefully put things in a new backpack and go again to their relatives.

25- summerAleksey V. shows her mother the duffel bag she just received, she meticulously examines it, but does not look inside. «Normal things — Alex told us. — They definitely won't be superfluous, I speak as a person who has served. Winter camouflage is especially pleasing. You can't have a lot of clothes.

27—year-old Andrei S. shows how berets and summer camouflage suit sit on it. “Such a suit is also called“ figure ”, this is not military equipment, but as as a spare set it will work great. For some reason, my wife insisted that I come to the mobilization point “like a parade”, now I will give her civilian things back, why should carry them back and forth. And dry rations — good bonus. I'm always ready to eat».

The dry ration, which is definitely enough for the road, contains soft buns, Tula gingerbread, sausage, juice, water, a portion of rice porridge with meat, cheese, a chocolate bar, disposable cutlery and a plate. By the way, while young people are at the mobilization point, they can have a free snack in the buffet and in the canteen, where hot meals are organized. The tables are not empty, the young body requires replenishment of energy. It should be noted that all the young people we saw at the point at the Museum of Moscow looked very collected and calm". The most common answer to  — “What was the first thought that came into your head when the summons came?” was like this: “It’s necessary, then it’s necessary.”

The doctor spoke about the diseases that people over 40 are susceptible to

After the age of 40, significant changes occur in the body, including hormonal changes, which serve as a trigger for aging. Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor Svetlana Kanevskaya told Gazeta.ru about this.

After 40 years, the reproductive system slows down in women. At the age of 40-45, the ovaries stop working. Stopping reproductive functions takes more than five years. The changes are due to a decrease in estrogen levels.

In men, by the age of 40-45, there is 15% less testosterone. The production of male sex hormone decreases at the age of 30-35 by an average of 2% every year. Due to a decrease in the level of testosterone, which is responsible for metabolic processes, men often gain weight.

Other disorders also occur. By the age of 40, people lose up to 2% of muscle mass every year. The bone mass becomes less dense. In this regard, sarcopenia develops, the risk of osteoporosis and diabetes mellitus increases, the specialist said.

In addition, failures occur in the circulatory system with age due to the development of atherosclerosis. The hematopoietic system begins to work with disorders, which is fraught with strokes, cerebral hemorrhages, myocardial infarctions.

Vision also becomes worse, farsightedness and problems with the nervous system often occur.

Kanevskaya recommends regularly in a complex check the body, carry out the necessary corrective procedures for the prevention of diseases.

Earlier, psychotherapist Evgeny Fomin said that in the autumn-spring period, some people experience an exacerbation of neurotic disorders, anxiety increases and possible phobias intensify.

“Marine biota suffocated.” Oceanologist – about the consequences of the accident on the Potokah

Story Sanctions against Russia and RF retaliatory measures

On 26 September, both lines of the gas pipeline were damaged in the territorial waters of Denmark

"Nord Stream — 1″ and one of two lines of Nord Stream — 2". These destructions, in addition to the obvious economic ones, will also have environmental consequences, because tens of millions of cubic meters of gas were thrown into the Baltic Sea.

Filip Sapozhnikov, Senior Researcher at the Institute of Oceanology of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Candidate of Biological Sciences

strong> told aif.ru what the consequences were.

«She simply hadn»

Dmitry Pisarenko, aif.ru: — What do you, as a specialist, know about this accident?< /p>

Philip Sapozhnikov: — Powerful explosions on the bottom of the Baltic were spotted by Swedish seismologists. The destruction occurred on two pipelines — on "Nord Stream — 2″  to southeast of Bornholm Island, where the current moves to the east of the Baltic Sea, and  "North Stream — 1″ to the north-east of the island, where the current goes westward, towards the Danish Straits.

Several tens of millions of cubic meters of gas got into the sea. He was in pipes under pressure of 300 atmospheres. In "Nord Stream — 2″ the pressure dropped to 7 atmospheres, and considering that at the depth of 75 meters, where the pipes are laid, the water pressure is 8.5 atmospheres, it had to enter through the holes formed into the pipeline and fill it.< /p>

It is clear that this is not a natural disaster. Pipe Diameter — almost 1.5 meters long, the pipeline was designed to withstand any natural disasters that could occur in the area, according to the statistics of many decades and even centuries. There was no movement of the earth's crust there, so there is no doubt that this is a diversion. The explosion led to the formation of large holes in pipes, and gas under high pressure began to escape into water.

— How dangerous this gas is for natural environment and marine fauna?

— "SP-2" was filled with technical gas, and "SP-1" — natural. Technical gas — it is a gas accompanying, for example, oil production. It consists of light hydrocarbons, mainly of methane. A natural gas, which was in "SP-1" — it is a mixture of propane, butane, methane, there was also oxygen, carbon dioxide. This mixture burns effectively, and it's good that no ignition occurred when it came to the surface.

— And could?

— Let me remind you that during the Crimean earthquakes of 1927 the Black Sea burned — then hydrogen sulfide came out on the surface, which is very abundant in its depths, and lightning strikes, and also just saturation processes in the drive layer, led to a fire. L fortunately, this hasn not happened now.

Once in the water, the gas rushed to the surface in huge bubbles. What was happening? The gas expanded, the bubbles grew in volume, collided with each other, crushed. The gas rapidly rose up and went out into the atmosphere, but partially dissolved in the water column. And those marine organisms that were within a radius of several hundred meters from this fountain»received a chemical burn — gas poisoning.

These organisms had to experience severe stress: they fell into a powerful and voluminous “gas chamber”, from which they could not get out and inevitably died. While the gas "siphon" from the bottom, he was supposed to kill zooplankton, phytoplankton, jellyfish, fish, and possibly marine mammals, if they were there. All this marine biota suffocated because the gas balance of the aqueous solution changed and it simply did not have enough oxygen.

Deadly “cloud” off the coasts of Denmark and Sweden

— If part of the gas dissolves in water, what will happen to it?

— "Cloud" dissolved gas moves downstream, stretching out into a long and narrow strip. I repeat, the flow from "SP-1" goes to side the Danish Straits, from "SP-2" — to the east of the Baltic Sea. This gas will gradually escape into the atmosphere, but there is a lot of it.

Wherever this “cloud” goes, it brings dead plankton with it. Everything that died will gradually settle down and create blockages at the bottom. They are fraught with prolonged decay and the formation of additional methane and hydrogen sulfide. In principle, the Baltic Sea has its own exclusion zones, where hydrogen sulfide is at depth and organic rots, so it isn the worst thing.

The fish that will meet such a gas “cloud” must go to the side — she feels well the change in the concentration of gases in the water. So she can be saved. But for marine mammals and birds living on the surface, there is a danger. And the reason is that this gas is odorless. These creatures will not feel the gas coming out of the water, and may suffocate.

— Is there a threat to humans?< /p>

— Yes, if they boat over this "cloud". They can simply inhale the gas and get poisoned. It was not in vain that shipping was immediately restricted in the area of ​​the accident. Firstly, if  a ship got into  the zone of action of the gas "fountain", beating from the bottom of the sea, it could cause poisoning of the crew. Secondly, in the  zone of such a rarefaction of the water, the ship could easily fail, losing its buoyancy.

It is not yet clear whether this plume will reach the Danish Straits. But it is unlikely to will pose a danger to the coast and people living on it (and these are the territories of Denmark and Sweden), because it is far from the coast. But some traces of the “cloud” can reach the Danish Straits. Then and nbsp; there, poisoning of bottom biota is possible, which will fall into the zone of its influence in shallow waters.

— What's next? Will the gas eventually come out of the water? How long will this last?

—         Bacteria inhabit              those very dead-end zones that I said about are inhabited by bacteria that oxidize hydrocarbons, feed on them, and reproduce actively. They absorb them at the physiological level. The spores of these bacteria are all over the sea. Now they will begin to process the gas contained in the water. I think its final disposal will take about two weeks.

— What are the conditions in this region of the Baltic to be able to repair the gas pipeline?

— The weather conditions there are going to be generally bad. In autumn, the weather deteriorates, strong storms begin. Given the sanctions and the current political environment, repairs could take many months. If they take him at all.

The expert told how the climate in Russia will change by the end of the century

Average temperatures in Russia will rise by 3-4 degrees by the end of the century. This was told to Gazeta.ru by the executive director of the scientific and technical center for monitoring the environment and ecology of the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, climatologist Alexander Rodin.

According to him, this situation will cause significant changes in the habitat of many organisms, including bacteria and viruses. In this regard, serious changes in healthcare may be required. There will be a need for new sanitary and epidemiological stations, medications. People will need to be regularly examined and vaccinated.

According to the expert, nature will adapt to changes: brown bears will crowd out polar bears in places, trees will begin to grow where they are not now, there will be less severe frosts.

At present, the planet is at the peak of warming after a period of decrease in temperature indicators. The cycle is natural, but the human factor has accelerated it.

It was previously reported that barometer readings would reach the baric bottom in Moscow and amount to 728 millimeters of mercury, which is 17-20 units below the norm.
