American swimmer Michael Phelps Nike Air Max 97 Red UK , the most decorated Olympian of all time, was suspended for six months by USA Swimming on Monday following his recent arrest on a drunken driving charge.

Phelps, who recently returned to top-level competition after a two-year retirement, will also not be allowed to represent the United States at the 2015 FINA World Swimming Championships in Russia next August Nike Air Max 97 Green UK , USA Swimming said in a statement.

The arrest last Tuesday marked the second time the 29-year-old Baltimore-area native had been arrested for drunken driving, the first being in 2004. In the first case, he pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of driving while impaired in exchange for 18 months’ probation.

“Membership in USA Swimming, and particularly at the National Team level Nike Air Max 97 Blue UK , includes a clear obligation to adhere to our Code of Conduct,” USA Swimming Executive Director Chuck Wielgus said in a statement. “Should an infraction occur, it is our responsibility to take appropriate action based on the individual case. Michael’s conduct was serious and required significant consequences.”

Phelps was arrested last week after speeding and then crossing the double-lane lines inside a Baltimore tunnel, police said Nike Air Max 97 Black UK , adding he was clocked by radar traveling 135 kph in a 72-kph zone.

Phelps apologized for the incident and said on Sunday he was checking himself into rehab for six weeks.

He can train with his member club during his suspension, but is ineligible to participate in USA Swimming-sanctioned competitions through March 6, 2015. Phelps, who has won 22 Olympic medals Nike Air Max 97 Grey UK , 18 of them gold, will also forfeit a monthly stipend from USA Swimming during the six-month suspension.

NAIROBI, March 4 (Xinhua) -- The UN relief chief on Saturday urged international support for the estimated 2.7 million people in parts of Kenya who urgently need food and water following the onset of a severe drought.

Stephen O'Brien, Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, said in a statement issued in Nairobi that the world must act now to save lives in Kenya and Horn of Africa region ravaged by severe drought.

"Famine has reared its ugly head in neighbouring South Sudan, Somalia is at risk for the second time this decade, and more than 2.7 million Kenyans are severely food insecure," warned O'Brien.

"Crops are failing, food prices are rising, and families are going hungry. The spectre of hunger and disease is haunting East Africa again. We need to put a stop to this," he added.

O'Brien who visited one of the driest areas in northern Kenya on Friday said he saw the devastating impact of drought on rural communities and called for international support for communities affected by conflict and drought in Kenya and the Horn of Africa.

The third consecutive year of drought in the Horn of Africa is causing thirst and hunger, decimating livestock, destroying livelihoods, spreading disease and triggering large-scale population movements.

Some of the worst-affected communities live along the Mandera triangle, where the borders of Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia meet in a region that witnessed outbreaks of chikungunya, dengue, AWDcholera and measles in 2016.

Half of Kenya's 47 counties are affected by drought and the government has declared a national drought emergency.

The food insecure population has more than doubled in less than a year, and an estimated 350,000 children, pregnant women and new mothers are acutely malnourished.

Kenya has pledged 99 million U.S. dollars to support national drought response efforts and committed to enhancing regional cooperation.

But the scale of the crisis is outpacing existing capacity. According to the United Nations, more than 2 billion dollars is required for humanitarian assistance in Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia in 2017.

SAN FRANCISCO, May 13 (Xinhua) -- A research using time-lapse photography in the Galapagos Marine Reserve, a thousand kilometers from the Ecuadorian mainland Nike Air Max 97 OG UK , suggests the presence of a key multilevel "trophic cascade" involving top- and mid-level predators as well as urchins and algae.

In the rocky, species-rich subtidal area, of about 133,000 square km off the Galapagos Islands Nike Air Max 97 Metallic Gold UK , researchers examined the relationships among predatory fishes, urchins, the algae that the urchins graze on, and how the interactions among them were influenced by se

a lions and sharks at the top of the food chain.

The key question for researchers: Do predators high up in the chain affect the abundance of the "primary producers" at the bottom -- in this case algae -- thus causing a trophic cascade?

Using GoPro cameras Nike Air Max 97 Silver Bullet UK , researchers from Oregon State University (OSU) and Brown University made a number of key findings regarding triggerfish, Spanish hogfish, pencil urchins, the larger green urchins and algae Nike Air Max 97 Summit White UK , including:

-- Among a diverse guild of predatory fishes, triggerfish can control the abundance of pencil urchins and thus also the abundance of algae the urchins eat; the experiments showed grazing on algae was eliminated when the pencil urchins were exposed to triggerfish predation, meaning triggerfish are a candidate for protection because of their strong effects on ecosystem function.

-- Green urchins eat more algae than pencil urchins yet are not the urchin prey of choice for predatory fish.

That suggests those fish aren' t controlling green urchin populations and thus that green-urchin barrens in the Galapagos - areas where the urchins have stripped the sea floor of algae - are not the result of the overfishing of predatory fish.

-- Spanish hogfish are not major predators of urchins as earlier, survey-based research had suggested.

Hogfish mainly eat the smaller pencil urchins and also interfere with triggerfish feeding on large pencil.
