BOGOTA Cheap Air Max Free Shipping , April 28 (Xinhua) -- The death toll from a construction project that collapsed on Thursday in the northern Colombian city of Cartagena has climbed to 10, while four people remain missing, local authorities said on Friday.

Another 21 people, mainly laborers, were injured in the incident, which has shone the spotlight on unscrupulous developers who flout building regulations.

"Those responsible for this project ... will be captured soon to be brought to justice Cheap Air Max Outlet ," said Dumek Turbay, the governor of Bolivar department, where the city is located, after it came to light the project permit was for a three-story building, but the actual plans called for eight floors.

"Construction projects need to be carried out in keeping with the respective permits, and need to guarantee the safety of the workers Cheap Air Max Shoes ," Turbay told reporters.

Those missing are likely to still be under the rubble of the five- or six-story structure that caved in after one of the supporting columns snapped.

Cartagena's Fire Department said Thursday heavy rains in recent days could have weakened the structure, leading to its collapse.

Survivor Gabriel Ladeuth, a 32-year-old construction worker who was on the second floor working on the walls when the structure fell, said he was able to leap out into the street after hearing the sudden roar of falling debris, but many of his companions were not as lucky.

SAN FRANCISCO Cheap Air Max , March 22 (Xinhua) -- Stanford University climatologist Noah Diffenbaugh sees no contradiction in California, on the U.S. West Coast, experiencing one of its wettest years on record right on the heels of a record-setting extended drought.

"We are now in a very different climate, one where we're likely to experience more frequent occurrences of hot, dry conditions punctuated by wet conditions. That's not the climate for which our water system was designed and built," said Diffenbaugh Cheap Nike Air Max Mens , a professor of Earth System Science at Stanford's School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences.

Asked "why did California receive so much rain lately if we're supposed to be in the middle of a record-setting drought?" Diffenbaugh often refers the questioner to a Discover magazine story published in 1988, when Diffenbaugh was in middle school, and written by veteran science writer Andrew Revkin, which detailed how a persistent rise in global temperatures would affect the Golden State's water system.

The article predicted that as the largest state in the United States warmed, more precipitation would fall as rain rather than snow Cheap Nike Air Max Online , and more of the snow that did fall would melt earlier in the season, cause reservoirs to fill up earlier, increasing the odds of both winter flooding and summer droughts.

"It is amazing how the state of knowledge in 1988 about how climate change would affect California's water system has played out in reality over the last three decades," Diffenbaugh, who specializes in using historical observations and mathematical models to study how climate change affects water resources, agriculture Cheap Nike Air Max Free Shipping , and human health, was quoted as saying in a news release from Stanford.

"When you look back at the historical record of climate in California, you see this pattern of intense drought punctuated by wet conditions, which can lead to a lot of runoff," said Diffenbaugh. "This is exactly what state-of-the-art climate models predicted should have happened, and what those models project to intensify in the future as global warming continues."

Viewed through this lens Cheap Nike Air Max Outlet , the recent disastrous flooding at Oroville Dam and the flooding in parts of San Jose in California as a result of the winter rains could foreshadow what's to come. "What we've seen in Oroville and in San Jose is that not only is our infrastructure old, and not only has maintenance not been a priority, but we're in a climate where we're much more likely to experience these kinds of extreme conditions than we were 50 or 100 years ago," he said.

And, the intensifying cycle poses risks in the decades ahead. "In California and throughout the Western U.S., we have a water system that was designed and built more than 50 years ago Cheap Nike Air Max Shoes ," the climatologist said, noting that it is not too late for California to catch up in its preparations for a changing climate.

Japan's biggest newspaper apologized in print Friday for using the term "sex slaves" in its English-language edition to describe Asian women forced into Japanese military-run brothels during World War II.

The conservative Yomiuri said in articles in English and Japanese that it was inappropriate to have used the phrase and others implying the women were coerced to provide sex. The newspaper identified 85 articles with "sex slaves" or similar expressions between 1992 and 2013.

Right-wing activists have a long-running campaign against the term, maintaining the women weren't forced.

A government investigation in the early 1990s concluded that many of the "comfort women," as they are officially known, "were recruited against their own will" and "lived in misery at comfort stations under a coercive atmosphere."

The efforts to deny coercion have soured relations with South Korea, where some of the women came from.
