Un séisme de 73 à Tokyo pourrait y faire près de 10

first_imgUn séisme de 7,3 à Tokyo pourrait y faire près de 10 000 mortsUne étude publiée par la municipalité de Tokyo révèle qu’un séisme de magnitude 7,3 en plein centre-ville pourrait causer la mort de près de 10.000 personnes et faire 150.000 blessés. La simulation tient compte des changements telluriques ayant eu lieu depuis le 11 mars 2011.Une simulation actualisée de la municipalité de Tokyo, au Japon, tient compte des changements telluriques intervenus depuis le tremblement de terre de magnitude 9 survenu au large des côtes nord-est du Japon le 11 mars 2011. Grâce à cette estimation, le gouvernement souhaite améliorer les dispositifs de prévention et de secours. Plusieurs situations ont ainsi été envisagées. Selon les experts, le pire scénario serait que l’épicentre d’un éventuel séisme de magnitude 7,3 frappe la partie nord de la baie de Tokyo, un jour d’hiver, à 18 heures, avec un vent de 8 mètres par seconde (ce dernier, en attisant les incendies retarderait les secours). À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Dans ce cas, un tsunami qui atteindrait jusqu’à 2,61 mètres dans le quartier sud de Shinagawa pourrait déferler dans la ville. Toujours dans cette configuration, 5.600 personnes au moins périraient dans les secousses et 4.100 à cause des flammes et de la fumée. Jusqu’à 147.600 autres seraient blessées, dont 21.900 gravement atteintes, et ce uniquement dans la préfecture de Tokyo (près de 13 millions d’habitants). La simulation informatique a en outre calculé que 304.300 bâtiments seraient en tout ou en partie détruits, dont près des deux tiers par le feu. Cela laisserait sans abri 3,39 millions d’individus et empêcherait 5,17 millions de personnes de regagner leur domicile à cause des dégâts et de l’arrêt des transports en commun.D’autres scenarii envisagent également des séismes de magnitude plus élevées (jusqu’à 8,2) mais, paradoxalement, les chiffres sont moins dramatiques. Pourtant, les Japonais doivent se préparer à tout car Tokyo se situe à la jonction entre quatre plaques tectoniques. Dans les 30 prochaines années, les chances qu’un séisme de magnitude supérieure à 7 survienne sont ainsi de 70%. D’autres études estiment même que la probabilité de telles secousses dans les quatre prochaines années est de 50%.Cinq fois plus de “petits” séismes qu’avant Les sismologues reconnaissent toutefois qu’il ne s’agit là que d’estimations. Celles-ci se basent sur des données historiques et la connaissance actuelle des mécanismes tectoniques. Elles n’ont aucunement valeur de prévisions. Néanmoins, l’activité sismique s’est fortement intensifiée à Tokyo depuis le séisme de l’an dernier. Par ailleurs, on relève dans la capitale en moyenne plus de 1,5 tremblement de terre de magnitude supérieure à 3 chaque jour, soit cinq fois plus qu’auparavant.Le 20 avril 2012 à 09:37 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Drivers getting used to new Salmon Creek Interchange

first_imgAlmost a month after the opening of a new freeway interchange at Northeast 139th Street, traffic patterns in the Salmon Creek area still appear to be in flux as thousands of drivers feel out the new setup.But regular commuters should find a new normal soon, county and state transportation officials say.“I think we’re getting closer,” said Rob Klug, Clark County’s traffic signal operations and engineering lead.For now, “there’s a lot of variability in the traffic out there,” he said.The new interchange and bridge at 139th Street opened to much fanfare on Aug. 27. A ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the occasion ended four years of construction, and came 17 years after planning began on the $133 million Salmon Creek Interchange Project. The effort also rebuilt local roads and made improvements to Interstate 5 and Interstate 205 near the convergence of the two freeways.New patterns developNearby Northeast 134th Street, long plagued by congestion and backups, has seen a marked improvement since the new interchange opened, according to county traffic data. For example: The offramp connecting northbound I-5 to 134th Street once carried about 12,000 vehicles per day, Klug said. Now, more than a third of that traffic — 4,500 vehicles per day — uses the new northbound offramp at 139th Street, he said.Other ramps at 134th Street have seen similar improvements, said Bart Treece, a spokesman with the Washington State Department of Transportation. In general, the new interchange and improvements are performing well, he said.Earlier models predicted that as much as 40 percent of the traffic at 134th Street would shift to 139th Street, Klug said. Depending on where it’s measured, that number is around 25 percent to 33 percent so far, he said. But that may change as drivers continue to adjust.last_img read more

Lotus Evija electric hypercar aims just shy of 2000 horsepower

first_img 1 Comment The interior keeps Lotus’ focus on simplicity, but its design looks far more futuristic. There’s a whole lot of low-gloss carbon fiber, and the center console is a thin, little thing that rises rather dramatically, leaving plenty of space behind it for storage. The steering wheel is small and square, and it rests just ahead of a single digital screen that stands in for a more traditional gauge cluster. Since it lacks traditional side mirrors, there are screens in both door panels that beam a camera’s view to the cockpit.If you think the looks are bonkers, wait until you hear about the powertrain. While Lotus isn’t divulging production specs just yet, it has a number of target specifications. Its battery sends juice to all four wheels by way of electric motors that are aiming for an output just shy of 2,000 horsepower and 1,250 pound-feet of torque. With a curb weight 3,700 pounds in its lightest specification, 62 miles per hour hopes to arrive in under 3 seconds, with the speedometer reaching 186 mph in less than 9 seconds and topping out north of 200 mph.The battery is estimated at 70 kilowatt-hours, which might not seem like much, but Lotus believes it can squeeze 250 miles of range out of that figure, although that number is likely based on European WLTP measurements, which tend to be more favorable than the EPA’s handiwork. Using a 350-kilowatt charger, the battery should top off in just 18 minutes.Of course, all this capability means one thing: It will drain money from your wallet faster than it drains electrons from its battery. Lotus estimates that each car will cost between £1.5 million and £2 million ($1.9 million to $2.5 million). The automaker is asking for a £250,000 ($310,000) refundable deposit to get one of the 130 production slots on offer. Production is scheduled to commence in Norfolk, England in 2020.  Lotus Evija doesn’t look a thing like any other Lotus, and that’s good More From Roadshow 40 Photos 2020 Kia Soul EV first drive: More style, more range, more fun 2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid first drive: A new kind of Explorer 2020 Lotus Evora GT first drive: A reminder to drive Lotus Evija hypercar is an electric rebirth for the British…center_img Share your voice Now playing: Watch this: 23:22 Enlarge ImageHeavens. Charlie Rose/Roadshow Lotus has been sailing along for the last several years with occasional rehashes of its three core vehicles — Elise, Evora and Exige. But now, under the tutelage of new parent company Geely, Lotus is ready to roll out something that’s wildly different from the norm. It’s the Lotus Evija, and it’s nuts.Lotus on Tuesday unveiled its all-electric hypercar, the Evija. Pronounced “E-vi-ya,” and reportedly translating to “the first in existence,” this car represents a dramatic departure from the usual day-to-day Lotus stuff. It’s a proper moonshot, packing all manner of new technologies while aiming for stratospheric numbers that would fit right in with all the wild metal seen at every Geneva Motor Show.We’ll start with the looks. The Evija is such a radical departure from the current Lotus design language that it’s almost surprising to see the badges on it. It looks more like the Aston Martin Valkyrie than an Evora, with body panels that hug the wheels and generate a whole bunch of interesting shapes on the sides — I mean, look at that those massive air channels just ahead of the rear wheels! I even see a little bit of the McLaren F1 in the side profile, thanks to its wedge-y shape.The rear is perhaps the most marvelous part of the whole car. Those channels ahead of the rear wheels send air through two positively massive outlets at the rear, surrounded by LED lights. The rear diffuser is the size of a small European village, and there’s another LED light smack dab in the middle of it. It appears the charging port is tucked away back there, too, just under the Lotus badge. Lotus Electric Cars Exotic Cars Future Cars Performance Cars Coupes Tags Lotuslast_img read more

Palmer man faces federal charges in 2016 double homicide

first_imgActing Alaska U.S. attorney Bryan Schroder speaking at a press conference on March 23, 2017 (Photo by Wesley Early, Alaska Public Media – Anchorage)A Palmer man faces federal charges in a Wasilla double homicide last summer, and the defendant, 30-year-old John Pearl Smith II, could face the death penalty.Listen nowProsecutors say the decision to charge Smith in federal court aims to fulfill a nationwide directive by Attorney General Jeff Sessions to use federal resources in fighting violent crime at the local and state level.It was June of 2016 when Alaska State Troopers found Wasilla residents 43-year-old Ben Gross and 30-year-old Crystal Denardi shot to death inside a burning home, as well as another injured man.The charges filed against Smith say he was a suspect in the double homicide from the beginning. After intense surveillance for about two weeks — including surveillance from the air and the monitoring of Smith’s phone — he was arrested on a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to the charges.Acting U.S. Attorney Bryan Schroder said the arrest allowed troopers and federal investigators to build their case against Smith while he was safely behind bars.“The investigation was extensive in this case, led by the Alaska State Troopers, who obtained assistance from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Drug Enforcement Administration,” Schroder said.A federal grand jury handed up a 17-count indictment this week that includes charges of using a firearm in a murder, burglary and attempted drug possession with the intent to distribute. It appears Smith was trying to steal drugs when the shootings occurred.Schroder said the drug connection is what allowed the charges to be filed in federal court, where the death penalty is an option.Smith’s attorney, Steve Wells, said the government must first prove that they have the proper evidence to seek the death penalty for Smith, even before a potential trial begins.Wells said the argument over that issue and others will occur in time.“We look forward to our day in court,” Wells said. “Mr. Smith would remind everybody that, in our system, someone is innocent until proven guilty.Schroder, the acting U.S. Attorney, said the case against Smith is an example of the cooperation by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies requested by Sessions, the U.S. Attorney General. Schroder said he expects to see more coordinated efforts in the future.“That cooperation is what we really want to emphasize here today, that we’re all doing what we can to protect the people of Alaska from violent crime,” Schroder said.Meantime, the position of U.S. Attorney for Alaska remains open. Schroder said he does not know how long it will take the Trump administration to make a decision.last_img read more

Puneeth Rajkumar requests Sumalatha not to use his name in politics for

first_imgPuneeth Rajkumar.Puneeth Rajkumar Twitter AccountPuneeth Rajkumar has sent a message to the people not to drag his name in politics and stated that he is not endorsing any candidate or party. His statement comes a day after Rockline Venkatesh claimed that the Power Star is supporting Sumalatha’s candidature from Mandya constituency in the upcoming Lok Sabha election.In a press release, Puneeth Rajkumar claimed he would like to be recognised by people as an artist and not as a politician, but he urges his fans to vote, sensibly. “It is the duty of the people to exercise their constitutional right to vote and it is the individual’s choice to choose their candidates. As the citizen of this country, I respect their decision and will convey my fans to be responsible voters, but I do not endorse any candidate or party,” he said in his statement.The Power Star claimed that both Deve Gowda and Ambareesh’s families are his well-wishers. “I wish them all the best and I pray to the God to give them more strength to serve the society. I also request people not to use my name in election and politics,” he said in his concluding statement.Two days ago at a press meet, Rockline Venkatesh said that Sumalatha has the backing of the Sandalwood’s Power Star. “When I had called Puneeth Rajkumar on his birthday, he voluntarily asked me whether we need any support for Sumalatha. Also, he (Appu) told me that he was willing to campaign for Akka (Sumalatha), while sending his best wishes for her victory in Mandya,” he told the media.The Rajkumar family maintained safe distance from politics for decades, but Geetha, wife of Shivaraj Kumar, broke the rule as she contested from Shivamogga Lok Sabha constituency in 2014 general elections from the JD(S) ticket.However, the family had stated that she was contesting as the daughter of former Karnataka Chief Minister S Bangarappa and not as the daughter-in-law of Dr Rajkumar, but she lost to BJP Chief BS Yeddyurappa.Coming to Mandya, Nikhil Gowda, son of Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy, is being fielded by the JD(S).   Yash with Sumalatha and DarshanTwitterlast_img read more

Standard Chartereds assets sale draws lukewarm response from buyers

first_imgLondon-based lender Standard Chartered Plc, which is looking to sell stressed loans worth $1.5 billion in India, has drawn few takers for the sale. Hong Kong-based SSG Capital Management Ltd, which is a private equity firm specialising in buying distressed debt, is the only firm in talks to buy Standard Chartered’s assets, and that too at a discount, Mint reports.”The bank is looking to sell $300 million worth of loans to Cairn Energy, and the rest to Essar Group towards which it has a huge exposure. Depending on the discount SSG Capital is seeking, a deal will be carved out,” Mint quoted a source as saying.The present CEO of Standard Chartered, Bill Thomas Winters, has been reportedly trying to bring back profitability at the bank after it reported its first annual loss in two decades in February 2016.”It is important to assess the right place for such assets and make the sale as soon as possible, instead of sitting on them and waiting for a deal. Most large foreign banks make necessary provisions and exit stressed loans soon, which is the right way to deal with such cases,” Nirmal Gangwal, the Founder and MD of Brescon Corporate Advisors, was quoted as saying by the publication.On April 11, Standard Chartered had announced its decision to sell at least $4.4 billion of its assets in Asia. The move was seen as an attempt of the bank to clean up its balance sheets. The bank was earlier in talks with potential buyers to sell assets worth $1.4 billion of stressed loans made to Indian companies, including those to GMR Infrastructure.Standard Chartered bank reported a loss of $1.5 billion in 2015, which was markedly down from a profit of $4.2 billion in 2014, Bloomberg reported.[1 lakh = 100,000 | 1 crore = 10 million | 100 crore = 1 billion]last_img read more

Govt initiates projects for expats welfare

first_imgThe government has taken a number of projects for the welfare of Bangladeshi expatriates who are greatly contributing to the country’s economy, reports UNB.Under various projects, the government will set up technical training centres, specialised hospitals, residential schools, housing projects and a specialised insurance company.According to an official document, a project is under implementation to set up 40 technical training centres in 40 upazilas across the country in the first phase.Steps have been taken to construct 50 more training centres in 50 upazilas. “Gradually, training centres will be set up in all the upazials,” the document shows.It also says the government will construct two modern specialised hospitals in Dhaka and Chittagong giving priority to the treatment of homecoming expatriates and their family members.Besides, there will be reserved seats in all the government hospitals for them.There will be two residential schools in Dhaka and Chittagong in the first phase for ensuring education to the children of expatriates and of those returning home.The government is also contemplating preserving a quota for the children of expatriates in educational institutions at all levels.The document mentions that the government will take housing projects in the districts where the number of expatriates is comparatively higher.”A process is on to construct buildings of nine schools and colleges run by the Bangladeshi community in Saudi Arabia,” the document reads.The government has taken a decision to form a specialised insurance company under the ownership of Expatriate Welfare Board to provide insurance facility to all the Bangladeshi expatriates.There is a move to take a project for the employment of the family members of the expatriates who will die abroad.To give various sorts of services, the government will set up an Expatriate Digital Centre (EDC) in Saudi Arabia taking assistance from the access to information (a2i) programme of the Prime Minister’s Office.The government will take steps to bring all Diaspora living abroad under the facilities of Expatriate Welfare Board. Soon, the government will introduce ambulance services in Dhaka and Sylhet airports for the expatriates.”The government will set up safe homes in phases in all Bangladeshi missions,” the document added.It mentioned that a plan is afoot to set up support centres in Riyadh, Jeddah and Dubai to help the trouble-stricken Bangladeshi workers there.A senior official of the expatriates’ welfare and overseas employment ministry said the present government is serious and cordial regarding the welfare of the expatriates and their family members.”The government wants to improve the living standard of the expatriates and their family members through providing various facilities to them,” he said.Mentioning that the expatriates are one of the main strengths of the country’s economy, the official said, “So, we’re very much serious about giving them better services and changing their fate,” he said.last_img read more

New MIT Robot Sorts Recycling By Giving It a Squeeze

first_imgStay on target Robot Dog Astro Can Sit, Lie Down, and Save LivesHelp NASA Develop Autonomous Rovers The US produces some 68 million tons of recycling every year (a number that should, frankly, be much higher).That’s a lot of paper, plastic, metal, and glass (and, sometimes, actual trash) for human workers to sift through and sort.It’s a dull, dirty, and often unsafe job, but someone’s gotta do it. So why not a robot?Researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) developed a robotic system that can detect if an object is paper, metal, or plastic.The “RoCycle” system’s soft Teflon hand uses tactile sensors on its fingertips to detect an object’s size and stiffness. Basically, it squeezes cups, boxes, and cans to determine their makeup.No visual cues necessary.“Our robot’s sensorized skin provides haptic feedback that allows it to differentiate between a wide range of objects, from the rigid to the squishy,” senior study author and MIT professor Daniela Rus said in a statement.A collaboration with Yale University, RoCycle demonstrates the limits of sight-based sorting; it can distinguish between two identical-looking Starbucks cups made of paper and plastic that would give vision systems (and the human eye) trouble.“Computer vision alone will not be able to solve the problem of giving machines human-like perception,” Rus said. “So being able to use tactile input is of vital importance.”For decades, the US sent the bulk of its recycling to China, to be converted into shoes and bags and other new products. But last year, the country raised its standards, restricting imports on mixed paper and most plastics—which means a majority of our single-stream recycling now ends up in landfills.“If a system like RoCycle could be deployed on a wide scale, we’d potentially be able to have the convenience of single-stream recycling with the lower contamination rates of multi-stream recycling,” according to PhD student Lillian Chin, lead author on the MIT paper.RoCycle is a robot that can sort recycling (via Jason Dorfman/MIT CSAIL)Designing a machine to do our dirty work, though, is not easy. While humans can hold an object and immediately recognize many of its qualities—even with our eyes closed—robot hands are not yet that advanced.That’s where Rus & Co. come in.Using a motor-driven hand made of a relatively new material called “auxetics,” the team created a component that, when cut, twists to enable dynamic movement.An attached set of sensors help estimate an item’s size and stiffness, able to tell the difference between “hard” and “soft” objects with 78 percent accuracy.Compatible with any robotic arm, RoCycle was found to be 85 percent accurate at detecting materials when stationary, and 63 percent accurate on an actual simulated conveyer belt.Its most common error, according to MIT, was identifying paper-covered metal tins as paper, which the team says would be improved by adding more sensors along the contact surface.More on Geek.com:Tokyo 2020 Olympic Medals Will Be Made From Recycled DevicesThese Vegan Shoes Are Made From Recycled Coffee GroundsThe Netherlands Now Has the World’s First Recycled Plastic Bike Path10 Things You Shouldn’t Be Putting in Your Recycle Binlast_img read more

By improving the reliability of real-time ultrasound scans, UCAs often reduce the need for unnecessary downstream tests and related costs, speed up the time to diagnosis and access to appropriate therapy, reduce the length of hospital stays, and improve patient care, outcomes and experiences.UCAs do not contain radioactive material or dye, present no known risk of kidney or liver damage, and do not require sedation. The agents are metabolized and expelled from the body, primarily through the lungs, within minutes.“Our collective experience shows that UCAs are exceedingly safe and beneficial, and they can change patient outcomes and improve patient experiences,” according to a statement submitted by the SRU on behalf of American radiologists with expertise in ultrasound.The SRU statement added that CEUS is often “equivalent to or superior to CT [computed tomography] and MRI [magnetic resonance imaging], yet it is less expensive, more patient-friendly, more widely available and completely radiation-free.”According to the ICUS Petition, a “black box” warning is appropriate only as an indicator of the very highest level risk associated with FDA-approved products, and studies now show “no increased safety signal even among the sickest patients.” The petition describes safety studies undertaken after 2007 at the request of the FDA, as well as other independent studies recently published in peer-reviewed journals.”The data now clearly and consistently show that UCAs are extremely safe — even in the sickest patients,” according to Michael Main, M.D., a cardiologist at Saint Luke’s Mid America Heart Institute in Kansas City. Main is a vice president of ICUS and the principal author of recent studies examining the safety of UCAs.Richard Barr, M.D., a radiologist in Youngstown, Ohio, wrote that his physician group has used CEUS in more than 3,000 patients over more than 10 years, without a single significant adverse event. Barr is also the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine and stated that he supports the ICUS petition.In addition, Barr said that CEUS prevented a large number of biopsies and surgeries, and allowed his group to confirm benign lesions with confidence and detect other lesions at an earlier stage so that appropriate therapy could be provided more quickly. He noted that CEUS is also an important tool for patients who are unable to tolerate contrast CT or MR, such as patients with kidney insufficiency.CEUS also offers a “huge advantage” for pediatric patients, according to Kassa Darge, M.D., Ph.D., radiologist-in-chief at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. He said CEUS can reduce or eliminate radiation exposure, avoid sedation or anesthesia, avoid gadolinium contrast deposits — and ultimately is “much more sensitive or depicts the pathology clearer” in many pediatric ultrasound scans.Darge said that the “high safety profile” of CEUS in children has now been documented in scientific publications encompassing thousands of children, and there are “no real scientific reasons for having this label.”Yet because of the black box, some physicians are unduly reluctant to refer patients for CEUS and some patients are apprehensive about receiving UCAs, according to Barr and other experts who weighed in on the petition.“The unnecessary presence of a black box results in unfounded fears of utilization of these extremely beneficial agents, and patients are thus exposed to potentially more harmful investigative procedures, or worse, have no information due to uninterpretable, or misinterpreted ultrasound studies, resulting in missed or wrong diagnoses,” according to Sharon Mulvagh, M.D., professor of medicine emeritus, Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., and professor of medicine, Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada.Watch the VIDEO: Use of Ultrasound to Assess Heart Disease Risk, an interview with Mulvagh at ASE 2017.“The Black Box serves no useful purpose,” according to a letter submitted by Yuko Kono, M.D., clinical professor of medicine and radiology at the University of California, San Diego; Stephanie Wilson, M.D., clinical professor of radiology and medicine at the University of Calgary; and Andrej Lyshchik, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor of radiology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia. Kono, Wilson and Lyshchik are members and chair of the CEUS LI-RADS Working Group.According to Wilson, the United States is behind the rest of the world when it comes to using CEUS, which she described as a very patient-friendly, extremely reliable and easy-to-use imaging tool.“We believe the boxed warning is not warranted and only discourages the use of CEUS,” according to Beth McCarville, M.D., and Peter Strouse, M.D., writing on behalf of SPR, the pediatric radiology organization. According to them, a growing body of literature now validates the excellent safety profile of UCAs, which offer a “safe, sedation-free and radiation-free, low-risk method of assessing a variety of conditions in children and should be embraced and supported by pediatric care providers.”The ICUS petition notes that the FDA has steadily responded to the mounting evidence of UCA safety and efficacy by downgrading package insert contraindications three times since 2007, and removing a 30-minute monitoring requirement for patients with pulmonary hypertension or unstable cardiopulmonary conditions. More recently, the FDA approved new indications for use in adults and children.Three UCAs are currently approved for use in the United States — Definity (Lantheus Medical Imaging), Lumason (Bracco) and Optison (GE Healthcare).For more information: www.icus-society.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content read more The ScanTrainer transvaginal simulator is one example of Intelligent Ultrasound’s simulation technologies.

Libertango seduces with Argentine classics

first_imgNo related posts. When we hear the word “tango,” we usually think of the dance itself: clasped hands, bodies pressed together, roses clenched in teeth. But the Libertango Quintet would like to remind its listeners that tango music is art form unto itself, and even if you take away the elegant ball gowns and hungry gazes, the composition can stand alone.Inspired by the works of Astor Piazzolla and his Buenos Aires Quartet, Libertango performs original arrangements of classic tango pieces, from Edgardo Donato’s “A media Luz” to Piazzolla’s “Tangata.” This sumptuous combination of strings, piano and accordion will seem all the more seductive in the elegant surroundings of the National Theater.Libertango aims to honor both Argentine tango and the musical talents of Costa Rica, and its performers had the distinction of being the only Latin American musical group at the Sounds of Eurasia Festival, held in Russia last year. Catch them at dusk for a one-evening performance.Libertango performs Nov. 28. National Theater, San José. 5 p.m. 4,000 ($8). Info: Info: 2010-1111, teatronacional.go.cr.
