People searched for one another in the dark, and others treated a baby’s wounds out in the open under the torch light of mobile phones. Some lay down on stretchers waiting for ambulances to take them to hospitals. Rescue workers and medics arrived to search for victims and give first aid to those who were stranded, while the country’s leaders ordered emergency relief to the quake zone. The military also flew troops into Balochistan, the country’s largest yet least populated province, to help with search efforts and determine the scale of the destruction. Army helicopters airlifted nine people with critical injuries, including children with bandages wrapped around their heads, to the city of Quetta near the Afghan border, where residents also felt the ground shake miles away, the country’s national news agency said . “Women, children, everyone, was running here and there,” Ghulam Khan, a resident, told the Associated Press , which reported that one of a string of coal mines in the region had collapsed. “We were scared and we didn’t know what to do.” The head of the province’s Disaster Management Authority, Naseer Ahmed Nasir, told The Washington Post that it had recorded 20 deaths and 300 injuries but that it was still conducting rescue operations. At least six children were among the dead, the charity Save the Children here said.

“His wife and family are quite grieved and sad that Murad has been killed. They’re quite scared now that everyone (in the family) will be killed.” * 'We can't leave them there': Interpreter pleads for Afghanistan evacuations to continue A 2006 contract signed by Murad says he would be paid US$6.05 per day and a food allowance of US$1.33 per day for his work as a head guard providing security services for the NZDF base, according to the contract seen by Stuff. Murad was one of a number of Afghan nationals who because of their ties to New Zealand forces, the government and aid agencies, are at risk as Taliban across the country retaliate against those who worked with allied forces . Since the Taliban took control of the country in mid-August there have been reports of violence against not only those who worked with allied forces but also women and other minorities. “The government has received tens of thousands of emails and phone calls including from those who claimed to have worked for, or be connected to NZDF, or other New Zealand Government agencies in Afghanistan,” a Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade spokesperson said. “Over 1250 visas have been issued since that time.” Hakimi said Murad and a number of other contractors had not applied for the visas though because they’d already fled to the mountains after the Taliban took control of their towns and were not able to be contacted when the New Zealand government announced a special visa for those who had worked for them. Mohammad Murad was killed by Taliban likely because of his work at a New Zealand defence force base. “By the time they got a message from me, it was already too late,” he said.

Robert Mulvaney, a glaciologist with the British Antarctic Survey, with a core of ice collected from the James Ross Island ice cap on the Antarctic Peninsula. The soot that ultimately settled on James Ross Island could have only come from a few locations, the researchers found. “Because of atmospheric circulation, New Zealand, Tasmania and Southern Patagonia fit the bill,” Dr. McConnell said. To home in on the most likely source, the researchers analyzed published records of charcoal found in each of the three places. Charcoal reveals that woody material was burned nearby, and changes in its abundance over time can be traced, just like soot records in ice. Only New Zealand exhibited a pronounced uptick in charcoal abundance at the end of the 13th century, consistent with the ice core records from the northern Antarctic Peninsula. “We see this big peak, which we call the initial burning period, around 700 years ago,” said Dave McWethy, an ecologist at Montana State University who studies charcoal in New Zealand, and a co-author of the study. But finding signatures of those fires thousands of miles away in Antarctica was a big surprise, Dr. McWethy said. “No one knew that it could travel that far and actually be recorded in ice cores.” The increase in fire activity in New Zealand at the end of the 13th century is most likely linked to the arrival of Māori, researchers have proposed . Like other Indigenous groups, Māori used fire to make their environment more habitable, said Dr.

“He’s more than a friend, he’s family to me now, and we get together all the time,” Lopes said. When initially offered the chance to run the pumpkin farm, Lopes called Bretao to ask if he wanted to split costs and run it together. Bretao immediately agreed, and they reached an agreement with Muller to lead a new era. “We’ve always been interested in pumpkins and farming, but we’ve never really had a chance to get into it because of finding the land to do it, and this was a great opportunity,” Lopes said. Lopes enjoys spending time at the patch looking after the livestock and pumpkins and giving kids the chance to also experience traditions like Berner Day, for Bernese mountain dogs, and sitting on the old tractor and hayrides. They have also added new experiences, including planting a sunflower field and having goats, a rescued calf, a donkey and a steer. Both have other jobs, with Lopes a truck driver and Bretao owning a construction company. Family and volunteers also pitch in and support the pumpkin patch. “It’s a lot of work and a lot of learning. Thank God we have had help. We are able to have family and friends guide us, and our foreman providing us with equipment,” Lopes said.
