/ Uno TV

La Comisión Ambiental de la Megalópolis (CaMe) anunció esta mañana que se activa la Contingencia Ambiental Extraordinaria por partículas (PM 2.5) en la Zona Metropolitana del Valle de México. La CaMe registró un valor de 160 puntos del Índice de Calidad del Aire.

Debido a lo anterior, las siguientes medidas son de aplicación inmediata y debe alcanzarse su aplicación total a las 10 horas, indicó la CaMe:

· Evitar actividades al aire libre. No realizar actividades vigorosas tales como ejercicio intenso, el cual incrementa la dosis de contaminantes inhalados.

· Evitar la realización de actividades cívicas, culturales, deportivas y de recreo al aire libre en centros escolares. En caso que sea posible, se recomienda que los grupos sensibles permanezcan en sus hogares (infantes, personas de la tercera edad y enfermos de las vías respiratorias y cardiovasculares).

· Permanecer en interiores, con las ventanas y puertas cerradas.

· Evitar la cocción de alimentos con leña, carbón o gas; no prender velas o incienso y no fumar.

· En caso de contar con aire acondicionado, utilizarlo en modo de "recirculación". Si tiene que realizar actividades de limpieza, que sean en húmedo.

· Acudir al médico en caso de haberse expuesto al humo o si sienten molestias.

· Evitar el uso de lentes de contacto.

· Facilitar el trabajo desde casa, especialmente para trabajadores que forman parte de los grupos sensibles.

· En el caso de hogares cercanos a las zonas de incendio, donde el humo sea denso, colocar toallas húmedas en las zonas por donde pueda introducirse a las habitaciones (ranuras de puertas y ventanas). Si es posible, retirarse del área.

· En caso de encontrar cenizas provocadas por los incendios, evite el contacto con ellas, no permita que los niños y las mascotas entren en contacto, impida el contacto de las cenizas con su piel; si necesita barrerlas del piso u otras superficies, humedézcalas ligeramente y no permita que se suspendan de nuevo en el aire.

La CaMe hace un llamado a reducir emisiones en todas las fuentes, reduciendo el uso del automóvil, dando mantenimiento a los vehículos automotores y tomando medidas para reducir contaminación del aire en industrias, comercios, servicios y el hogar.

Asimismo indicó que más tarde se darán a conocer medidas adicionales que serán aplicables a partir del día de mañana (miércoles).

How Howard Stern became a new man

He talks with Tracy Smith about his new book of interviews, "Howard Stern Comes Again"; his psychotherapy; a health scare that demonstrated he "wasn't Superman"; and how he and his wife are guardian angels to a thousand rescue cats.

Flight of fancy: The TWA Hotel

When Trans World Airlines went bankrupt in 2001, it looked like the end for architect Eero Saarinen's classic TWA Terminal at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, one of the most distinctive buildings in the world. But it was rescued from the bulldozer by building preservationists, and the magnetic terminal that once drew air travelers has now been transformed into the nostalgic TWA Hotel, which recalls the glamour of '60s jet-setting aviation. Kris Van Cleave checks in.
