Direction of Civil Protection called on the community not directly observe the solar eclipse that will be presented in Ciudad Juarez, said the Director General of Ecology and Civil Protection, Raul de Leon Apraez. .

It was necessary to use special eye protection, because to do so could have severe eye damage, even losing it.

He said that not just any sunglasses protect the eyes, so consider it necessary to ask the experts what type of material is indicated.

Another way to observe the eclipse is to make a hole in a card so that the light is projected on the floor.

The eclipse occurs when the Moon’s shadow does not cover completely the Sun and the star is seen as a luminous ring.

Was also observed in Baja California Norte, Baja California Sur, Chihuahua, Guadalajara, Mexico City and Monterrey.

IN ASIA AND THE UNITED STATES ALSO BE APPRECIATED

Millions of people in Asia and the western United States on Monday witnessed an annular eclipse of the sun, marveling at the strange spectacle of a “ring of fire” across the heavens.

The annular eclipse, in which the moon passes the sun, but leaving only a golden ring around its edges, was also witness to a singular event as virtually had a return in time, because it was seen first Monday morning in Asia and then in the last afternoon of Sunday in the western U.S..

In some parts of the United States were sold cameras with special filters to take pictures of the astronomical phenomenon. In several parts, as in Reno (Nevada) and Oakland (California), meetings were organized to witness the eclipse.

There were also people from neighboring states and Canada who traveled to Albuquerque, New Mexico, to enjoy the eclipse in one of the best places to watch. Older people threw shouts and the children screamed with excitement when the moon crossed the sun and started to form the halo of light.

In Japan, organized tours to better see the eclipse, either to pleasure boats and private aircraft. Similar events were held in China and Taiwan.

The eclipse was broadcast live on television in Tokyo, where there was not a solar eclipse since 1839. The Taipei Astronomical Museum opened before dawn on Monday and Hong Kong Space Museum set up telescopes with solar filters outside their building on the waterfront of Kowloon.

Japanese television sent teams to observe the phenomenon from the top of Mount Fuji. They also sent a team to a zoo south of Tokyo to capture the reaction of chimpanzees, but they do not seem to notice.

A light rain fell in Tokyo at the beginning of the eclipse, but the clouds thinned as the eclipse reached its maximum, which gives almost perfect condition.

“It was a very mysterious,” said Kaori Sasaki, who joined a crowd in downtown Tokyo to see the phenomenon. “I’ve never seen anything like this.”

African and Iranian Traffickers are incorporating in the Asia-Pacific!

A growing number of African and Iranian Traffickers are incorporating in the Asia-Pacific Region, and have become one of the largest production and trafficking centres for synthetic drugs, the UN said today in a report.

“In addition to the threat of organized crime endemic region, the report draws attention to the increasing reach and presence of transnational criminal groups” in Africa and Iran, said the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC, for short in English).

The report on the trafficking of synthetic drugs in 2010 found an increase in African groups, using Cambodia as a center for financial operations, China, Indonesia, Japan, Vietnam and Thailand.

“To avoid arrest, African trafficking organizations have diversified their routes through the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Asia,” says the report.

Iranians believe criminal groups of methamphetamine or amphetamine factories in Japan, Malaysia or Thailand, where multiplied Iranian arrests of drug trafficking.

However, the majority of synthetic drugs are produced locally in the region, with major centers in China, Burma (Myanmar) and the Philippines.

Gary Lewis, head of UNODC in the Asia-Pacific, said that the countries of East Asia require more resources to stop the trafficking of methamphetamine, which last year reached 136 million tablets seized, compared to 32 million 2008.

“We must be more active on all fronts to help the countries of the region to prevent the dangers of the South and East Asia will become the largest producer of illegal drugs,” said Lewis in a statement.

According to the UN office, the manufacture of synthetic drugs like methamphetamine and amphetamine are replacing from the 90 to plants producing heroin and cannabis that have proliferated in the region in previous decades.

In 2010, the largest seizure of these synthetic drugs in China was 58.4 million pills, followed by Thailand (50.4 million) and Laos (24.5 million).

In total, 442 factories were dismantled methamphetamine and amphetamines last year in East Asia, five times more than in 2006.

Of the 15 countries the report methamphetamine use decreased or remained in Australia, Japan, New Zealand, Philippines and Korea, while it expanded in Cambodia, China, Laos, Burma, Thailand and Vietnam.

The UN warned that drug design, in cases such as Indonesia have overtaken the use of hashish, not only pose a serious security problem and crime, but also a serious danger to public health.
