Amherst Renewable Energy Project Moves Forward

0 Comments

first_imgCommunities in the Amherst area will enjoy even more of the benefits of generating clean, green renewable electricity in their own backyard. The Assembly of Nova Scotia Mi’kmaq Chiefs, via Kwilmu’kw Maw-klusuaqn Negotiations Office, received approval today, Sept. 18, for a wind project under the Community Feed-in Tariff (COMFIT) Program. Benefits will be shared within the local community and Mi’kmaq communities throughout Nova Scotia. “The approval of this project demonstrates how Nova Scotians are committed to improving their energy future, reducing their environmental footprint, and creating economic opportunities,” said Energy Minister Charlie Parker. “Clean, green electricity is already successfully powering homes and businesses in the Amherst area, and this project will increase those benefits for the community.” The 6.0 MW project will be developed by the Kwilmu’kw Maw-klusuaqn Mi’kmaq in partnership with Wind4all Communities. “This COMFIT approval from the Department of Energy not only speaks to the quality of our Amherst Project but, more importantly, it speaks to the value and significance of our partnership with the KMK and Mi’kmaq,” said Austen Hughes, general manager, Wind4All Communities. “Through the Amherst project, the Mi’kmaq will become long-term and knowledgeable partners in the renewable energy sector,” said Chief Gerard Julian, co-chair of the Assembly of Nova Scotia Mi’kmaq Chiefs. “As project owners, we will be expanding our ability to continue to preserve Nova Scotian resources and protect the environment for generations to come.” The province has supported the Mi’kmaq renewal energy project development by providing $200,000 to create a Mi’kmaq Renewable Energy Strategy and $2 million for a Mi’kmaq Major Resource and Energy Fund. Nova Scotia Mi’kmaq and the province will also hold a renewable energy seminar Nov. 21. For more information on the seminar contact the Office of Aboriginal Affairs at 424-4174. The 2010 Renewable Electricity Plan introduced the COMFIT concept to help provide a secure supply of clean energy at stable prices, build community support for renewable energy projects and create jobs. “COMFIT offers Nova Scotia an opportunity to become a leader in renewable energy,” said Mr. Parker. “In addition, renewable energy projects such as this will help the province move away from dirty fossil fuels and towards our legislated goal of 40 per cent renewable energy by 2020.” Eligible groups receive an established price per kilowatt hour for projects producing electricity from certain renewable resources. Projects can include wind, biomass, in-stream tidal and run-of-the-river hydroelectric developments. Eligible groups include municipalities, First Nations, co-operatives, universities and not-for-profit groups. More than 25 community-based groups have submitted over 100 locally based renewable energy development proposals for this unique, made-in-Nova Scotia initiative. The province expects 100 megawatts to be produced through COMFIT. For more information on the program visit www.nsrenewables.ca .last_img read more

Guide en langage clair sur les poursuites judiciaires dans les cas dagression

0 Comments

first_img « C’est très clair, concis et direct, et c’est ce dont on a besoin dans ces moments. » « C’est un guide à l’intention des victimes et il est très axé sur les victimes. » « Cette ressource rend le processus beaucoup moins effrayant, et il élimine l’inconnu. C’est ce dont nous avons besoin. » « Convivial du point de vue visuel, et facile à comprendre. » Un Guide à l’intention des victimes d’agression sexuelle sur les poursuites judiciaires, récemment publié par le Service des poursuites publiques de la Nouvelle-Écosse, offre aux victimes d’agression sexuelle des renseignements en langage clair au sujet des poursuites judiciaires en cas d’agression sexuelle. « Il s’agit d’une ressource unique qui présente aux victimes les multiples étapes d’une poursuite judiciaire en cas d’agression sexuelle, qui peut être différente d’une poursuite judiciaire en cas d’autres infractions, explique Denise Smith, directrice adjointe du Service des poursuites publiques. Le guide présente chaque étape du processus, ce à quoi la victime d’agression sexuelle peut s’attendre, ainsi que des renseignements importants sur les droits de la victime et le soutien offert. » Le processus de poursuite judiciaire peut être intimidant pour une victime, peu importe l’acte criminel, mais il l’est particulièrement pour une victime d’agression sexuelle qui a déjà subi un traumatisme profondément personnel. Dans les cas où une victime n’a pas encore décidé si elle va signaler l’agression sexuelle à la police, ces renseignements peuvent l’aider à prendre sa décision. « Nous voulions que la ressource soit le plus efficace possible et qu’elle atteigne son public cible. Avec l’aide du financement offert par le gouvernement fédéral, nous avons embauché une firme de recherche pour effectuer nos essais auprès de groupes cibles, poursuit Mme Smith. Nous avons écouté très attentivement les commentaires reçus et nous avons élaboré ce produit final. » « Nous sommes d’avis qu’il s’agit d’un guide unique et d’une première au Canada puisque le contenu a été créé selon les résultats de consultations auprès de groupes cibles formés de victimes d’agression sexuelle. » Des séances de groupes de discussion d’une durée de deux heures ont eu lieu à Halifax, Sydney et Wolfville. Cinq groupes ont été animés en personne et un groupe a été animé en ligne. Les membres de quatre des groupes ont été recrutés auprès du grand public et incluaient des femmes de 18 à plus de 35 ans. Un groupe était formé d’intervenants qui offrent des services directs aux victimes, et le dernier groupe était formé de personnes qui ont subi un acte de violence sexuelle. Tous les groupes ont reçu une ébauche de la ressource et ont fourni des commentaires éclairés sur le langage, le contenu et la conception. Le Service des poursuites publiques a intégré toutes les suggestions pour créer un nouveau produit, qui a ensuite été présenté aux groupes d’intervenants et de victimes pour confirmer que le guide répondait bien à tous les besoins. Voici les réactions de quelques-unes des victimes à l’égard du guide : La nouvelle ressource peut être consultée en anglais, en français et en arabe au https://novascotia.ca/pps/Survivor-Guide.asp .last_img read more

Hailed as leader reformer Annan named for 2nd term as UN SecretaryGeneral

0 Comments

Six months before the end of his current mandate, Kofi Annan, a native of Ghana, was unanimously appointed today by the General Assembly for a second five-year term as Secretary-General of the United Nations. Saying he was “deeply honoured” by the re-appointment, Mr. Annan pledged to bring the United Nations closer to the peoples who it was founded to serve, so that five years from now, they will feel that it is “working better to fulfil their needs, and putting their individual welfare at the centre of everything it does.””Only if their confidence in the United Nations has been strengthened will your confidence in me have been justified,” he added.Today’s move by the Assembly, the UN’s main legislative body, followed a similarly unanimous decision by the UN Security Council on Wednesday. Introducing this morning a draft resolution recommending Mr. Annan’s appointment, which was sponsored by all 15 members of the Security Council, the body’s President, Anwarul K. Chowdhury, the Permanent Representative of Bangladesh, said Mr. Annan had exceeded all expectations that surrounded his initial appointment five years ago. “He has excelled in his office, delivering under trying circumstances,” he said. Ambassador Chowdhury lauded Mr. Annan’s reform efforts, saying the Secretary-General had “made the United Nations more relevant in today’s world, broadening its support base by developing partnerships with civil society and the private sector in particular.” The Council President also paid tribute to Mr. Annan’s strong support for development, which “has positively impacted on the lives of people all over the world.” In addition, Ambassador Chowdhury said the Secretary-General had “made a difference by advocating reason and hope” in response to conflict situations around the world. The General Assembly President, Harri Holkeri of Finland, said today’s decision was testimony to the trust that the Member States place in Mr. Annan. Stressing the need for the UN to become “more relevant to the world outside,” the President welcomed Mr. Annan’s initiatives to build partnerships with others both nationally and internationally. “I should like to assure you of the support of the Member States as you guide this Organization during the next five years,” Mr. Holkeri said. In his remarks to the General Assembly, the Secretary-General promised to work towards the fulfilment of the “marching orders” set out last year by Heads of State and government at the UN Millennium Summit. Addressing a capacity audience in the Assembly Hall, Mr. Annan said he laboured “under a constant sense of obligation – to you, the Members of the Organization; to all the world’s peoples, whom you represent; and in particular to my fellow Africans, whom you have honoured in my person today.” At the same time, he paid tribute to those who carried out the noble and often dangerous work in the service of the UN in peacekeeping operations, in refugee camps, and in countless other missions of mercy and of hope. “Wherever I have travelled in these past four years, and whatever issues I have tackled, I have been inspired by the sacrifices that the staff of the United Nations make, every day, on behalf of the peoples we serve.” The Secretary-General said he has worked to equip the UN to be able to adjust to new challenges and serve the world more effectively, while turning an unflinching eye on the Organization’s failures. “I have sought to speak out in defence of those who cannot speak for themselves – for the right of the poorest to development, and the right of the weakest and most vulnerable to protection,” he said. “And I have sought to make universal human rights the touchstone of my work, in all their aspects, because I believe they belong to every faith, every culture, and every people.” “Whether, or how far, I have succeeded in these aims is not for me to judge,” he said. “I do know, however, that the task is far from done.” In comments to reporters after the election, Mr. Annan pledged to further the UN’s goals by continuing to work closely with other members of the international community. “I will reach out and work much more effectively with the private sector, with civil society and foundations because this is an area of partnership and the UN can only be able to expand its capacity and achieve its goals by working in partnership with others,” he said. read more

Kosovo UN to set up privatization agency to help boost economy

0 Comments

“To get a functioning economy Kosovo needs investment,” Michael Steiner, who heads the UN Interim Administration Mission (UNMIK), said in an address to the University of Pristina. “And to get investment Kosovo needs to privatize.”While stressing that there are no “quick fixes” for Kosovo’s economy, Steiner said that a Kosovo Trust Agency would be established to oversee the process of privatisation.The Agency will be run by a Board of Directors comprised of three UNMIK and three Kosovar representatives – including at least two from the government and at least one representing the Serb community.”This process will take Kosovo out of the straightjacket that it has been bound in for so long,” Mr. Steiner said. “It will create the conditions for the private investor and as the market begins to function new jobs will emerge.” read more

Can hosts West Indies hold on to their crown

0 Comments

Stafanie Taylor and Hayley Matthews celebrate West Indies’ victory AFPSquad listStafanie Taylor (capt), Merissa Aguilleira, Shemaine Campbelle, Shamilia Connell, Britney Cooper, Deandra Dottin, Afy Fletcher, Sheneta Grimmond, Chinelle Henry, Kycia Knight, Hayley Matthews, Natasha Mclean, Anisa Mohammed, Chedean Nation, Shakera SelmanWorld T20 pedigreeThat old saying, “it is a double-edged sword”, inevitably springs to mind as the reigning Women’s World T20 champions West Indies hope to defend their crown at home.However, if recent history across women and men’s ICC events is considered – albeit in 50-over cricket – playing at home has never been more advantageous. From a time when players would wither under the weight of expectations, we’ve entered a period of unprecedented home dominance, with raucous crowds playing 12th man. Prime examples are India in 2011, Australia in 2015 and England’s women in 2017.If that isn’t a source of encouragement for the hosts, then their own T20I record at home at least should be: West Indies have lost just one T20I series at home – outside ICC events – which was also decided by a one-over eliminator after a tie. Despite playing very few T20I matches, to have sustained their run at home since 2009 is a remarkable feat.In that period, West Indies’ women have lost a T20I bilateral series at home only to New Zealand, who have historically been their bugbear. But they can contemplate crossing that bridge only if they make the knockouts from a group that also features England, Sri Lanka, South Africa and Bangladesh.Recent T20I formThe scars from a four-zip walloping at the hands of New Zealand in New Zealand in March were just about fading with successive wins against South Africa at home, but a loss off the penultimate ball of the final T20I meant that they had to settle for a drawn series in September-October. With only eight completed matches under their belt this year, lack of game time, especially with the cancellation of the bilateral series against India which would have preceded their World T20 campaign, could hurt them. They did play a rain-curtailed warm-up match against India, which they lost.The captain and coachSandwiched between Suzie Bates of New Zealand and Meg Lanning of Australia, Stafanie Taylor is placed second on the ranking for T20I batsmen and has been a regular feature in the WBBL and Kia Super League. Her captaincy credentials match her batting prowess stroke for stroke, having led her team to a thrilling win over Australia in the final to lift the trophy in 2016. She was also the player of the series in that tournament, with the most runs and eight wickets, and has now won the Windies Cricket’s Women’s Cricketer of the Year award two years in succession. Taylor is a star, with whose performance West Indies’ chances are aligned.Hendy Springer, the former West Indies A coach, took over the role temporarily following the axing of Vasbert Drakes after the team crashed out of the 2017 Women’s World Cup, where they won just two matches and were bundled out for an ignominious 48 against South Africa. He remains at the helm of affairs.Best playersTwenty-year-old Hayley Matthews, who recently struck her maiden international ton against South Africa, followed by a 70 in the final T20I; the highest wicket-taker in women’s T20I cricket, offspinner Anisa Mohammed; allrounder Deandra Dottin, who won the T20 Cricketer of the Year award from her board. These will all be central figures along with Taylor.Where will they finish?A neck-and-neck record against England, and historical dominance over South Africa, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh makes the home team one of the favourites on paper from group A to progress through to the semi-final.

Tributes paid by Irish music lovers as TXFM marks its last day

Share them in the comments.Read: There is a light that never goes out: Why we still need an alternative music radio station> Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Why? Because for ten whole years, in both its TXFM and earlier Phantom 105.2 incarnations, these two little Dublin radio stations fought with all their might to bring indie-rock music to the masses; to offer an alternative station for indie kids (and their older incarnations) who wanted to hear music that was genuinely surprising and different on their airwaves.O’Regan pointed out that “Irish bands who might have gone under survived and prospered because of TXFM and Phantom”.Music fans went to gigs because of music they heard on both stations. Band bookers for big TV shows checked out the tunes on TXFM and Phantom. Even big-name presenters often admitted privately that they were listening to TXFM and Phantom.Added O’Regan: “Sure, things weren’t perfect. We argued about the playlist. We argued about the presenters’ right to choose songs. We worried about direction. But we always knew that everyone’s heart was 100 per cent in the two stations. We know this even now, because as the station closes and people go off in their different directions (I’ve been very lucky to have been given a perch at deadly sister station Today FM), we still care.” The station had been known as Phantom 105.2 – which was originally a pirate station before getting a permanent licence in 2006 – and underwent a rebranding in 2014.Journalist Nadine O’Regan, who presented the Songs in the Key of Life show on TXFM (which recently moved to Today FM), penned a tribute to the station today: 17,286 Views Share491 Tweet Email1 @TXFMDublin so sorry to see you go off air! Thank you for the years of support,for playing The Frames music when no one else was.. Slán!— Glen Hansard (@Glen_Hansard) October 25, 2016 WHEN THE FINAL track is played on TXFM tonight, it’s the last song that will be ever heard on the alternative station.News broke in March that the station had not applied to have its broadcasting licence renewed, meaning it would have to go off air this month.TXFM has been running for over two years and had six full-time employees.Writing for TheJournal.ie, the station’s former CEO Peter McPartlin said:It is sadly ironic that at a time when ‘indie music’, both international and Irish, has rarely been more diverse, interesting and talent-laden, that the industry is losing one of the few outlets that has helped promote, encourage and generate sales for artists involved in it. Short URL Wednesday 26 Oct 2016, 9:47 AM This time tomorrow, TXFM won’t exist anymore. Some people might say that means TXFM has been a failure. And maybe, commercially, that’s a valid argument (the radio station is closing because, in challenging times for rock radio, the backers chose not to renew its licence). But for me, spiritually, nothing could be further from the truth. Oct 26th 2016, 9:47 AM In April, Joe Donnelly – presenter of the station’s drivetime show TXFM Drive – published a tribute to the station.“The most satisfying aspect was the relationship with listeners, and I really had no idea how strong this was until I had the horrible task of announcing the bad news on Wednesday evening,” he said.People talked about how the station got them through their day or their job or their commute. How we helped them through a tough time in their lives. People talked about how we were ‘the best friends they’d never met’.Yesterday, musician John Grant, who had appeared on the station a number of times, turned up to surprise presenter Claire Beck while she was live on air: Source: TXFM 105.2/YouTubeThat a star like John Grant would call into the station was proof of the impact TXFM had on those it supported.The station’s Twitter feed has also been filled with tributes and supportive messages from regular listeners: Source: Michael D Macauley/Twitter Source: Glen Hansard/Twitter Source: TXFM/Twitter Tributes paid by Irish music lovers as TXFM marks its last day on air Former presenters have spoken of their sadness at the closure. @TXFMDublin helping me beat the traffic blues one last time.

Racing towards Cyprus 2016 elections

0 Comments

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram What do I think of the upcoming May 22 elections? Not much. We see braying men and women as well as braying donkeys; senseless loud talking is none other than braying and we hear plenty of that, but no substance; politics has been reduced down to vocal slugging matches without dignity.The electorate is none the wiser but this time there is a breed of young candidates on the scene to spice things up. Every party has nominated new faces to show they have changed their ways – no such chance. One would expect to hear fresh ideas and show that things are moving in the right direction but that’s not happening.With the exception of some, most are a younger version of the established Kommatokratia and political victims with no free minds.There are 600 candidates and 12 parties that seek 56 parliamentary seats. In most western democracies 2-3 parties is the maximum but not so in Cyprus; the more political pens the merrier – divide and rule! It makes one wonder how some of those neophytes and others alike can believe they are capable of running the biggest corporation of the land – the country itself – without training or experience whatsoever? This is madness.Doctors, scientists and academics demand years of training before they are allowed to practice, why not the politicians? It’s not comprehensible to have military academies to train people to kill and yet, we do not have academies to prepare and train people to govern. Electing the right politician is like playing Russian roulette; the odds are always against the electorate. It’s no wonder countries end up in a mess – Cyprus included.Abstentions will be very high again this year. The disastrous troika bail-in will play a critical role on the outcome of the elections. The Anastasiades government has to accept the consequences of its inexcusable decision to steal people’s money in order to save a corrupt banking system. People are not so forgiving, and will probably punish the government and its dogmatic right-wing party at the polls – that is, if people do decide to go out and vote at all.Under EU qualified majority voting law, abstention votes count as ‘against’. The same practice should also apply during elections; people’s white/blank protest votes should count as a vote ‘against’ under horizontal voting. Such a fair democratic system does not exist in Cyprus. The rule by Kommatokratia all these years has in fact produced terrible results and will continue to do so if not dramatically changed.Without a radical mind-set to introduce a revolution of the mind and establish an ‘Academy for Political Leadership’ filled with the mightiest brains in the land – like the autonomous public Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) governed by Act – to produce excellence of national importance based on meritocracy – there will always be inferior leadership in Cyprus and an army of half-baked politicians governing the nation.Cypriot and foreign experts on constitutional matters, top academics and esteemed professors with a powerful brainpower can be gathered together to ponder on such a novel scheme of establishing a visionary academy in Cyprus where candidates graduate with political degrees before being allowed to even contemplate putting their names up for election or being considered for a political career. In time, a brilliant political catharsis will prevail in the interest of the country and not in the interest of the political parties.Plato’s brainstorm of philosopher rulers inspired Louis XIV to set up ‘Academie des Sciences Morales et Politiques’ in France (1712). The academy’s aim was to train young diplomats to excel in their chosen political careers, eventually growing to become Napoleon Bonaparte’s famous Institute de France.To succeed it demands the will to excel well above where all others have failed. Such a dream may be wishful thinking but not impossible. There is a long, long road ahead before such a vision can take root where petty politics have always worked against the nation. Thankfully, there is hope for a better tomorrow; a tomorrow to see a new breed of leadership that may rise out of the ashes of despair and political incompetence.* Andreas C.

Mackey praises Hamilton for their involvement in the UYL

first_imgScottish Football Association (SFA) Malky Mackay has heaped praises on Hamilton Academical for putting their faith in home-grown players whilst praising their participation in the UEFA Nations League.The Scottish side progressed to the next round of the competition following a dramatic penalty shoot-out victory over Swiss rivals Basel and Mackay predicts they will reap long-term benefits from their involvement.“Playing in the UEFA Youth League is exciting for Hamilton,” he said, according to HeraldScotland. “It is a reward for nailing their colours to the mast and deciding they want to go down a certain route.”No, UEFA didn’t invite Argentina to play the Nations League Manuel R. Medina – July 8, 2019 The rumor started on Fox Sports Argentina and rapidly gained traction all over the world, but the European governing body has denied the reports.“It makes them an attractive club to go to. It will have nothing but benefit for them. They have to look at how they go into these games, what style they play against a European team and what they learned from this experience. I suppose it puts a spotlight on how they can make things even better.”“There are a variety of young players who have come out of Hamilton who have been playing in their youth system.”“It is a great credit to Les Gray (the Hamilton chairman) who has decided ‘he is our manager, we have got a way of working, a way of playing, we buy into him and he is going to be our manager for the next few years’. They did it with Alex Neil and now they are doing it with Martin Canning.”“During a certain run to results, a button can be pushed. But it is refreshing to see what happens at Hamilton. It is what used to happen. A manager knew that every weekend he wasn’t looking over his shoulder. The pressure of the next four week’s results aren’t on him.”last_img read more

Photo: AFPCubans voted overwhelmingly in favour of constitutional reforms that cement the role of socialism in the island nation, the electoral commission said Monday.Some 6.8 million people, or more than 86 per cent of voters, supported the changes in Sunday’s referendum, while only 766,400, or nine per cent, voted against.A total of 7.8 million people took part in the vote, with just over four per cent of ballots blank or invalid.”The constitution has been ratified by the majority of citizens,” electoral commission president Alina Balseiro told a news conference.”Cubans have said #YesForCuba and #YesForTheRevolution,” foreign minister Bruno Rodriguez tweeted.”It’s an overwhelming response to the unbelievers who from Washington talked about the end of #Socialism, with policies that failed for more than 60 years.”#Cuba keeps going, always free, revolutionary and socialist.”US president Donald Trump had said earlier this month that the leftist ideology is “dying.”But academic and former diplomat Carlos Alzugaray had told AFP that Trump’s words would serve only to galvanize the “yes” vote as people “defend their independence against the US threat.”The constitutional reforms ratify socialism’s “irrevocable” role as the national ideology and replaces the 1976 constitution, a move criticized by the Catholic and evangelical churches.It also recognized the Communist Party as the “superior ruling political force in society and the State,” and its position as the nation’s only party.Campaign for ‘no’ voteIt has ruled Cuba since 1959, first under revolutionary hero Fidel Castro, then his brother Raul and, since April, Miguel Diaz-Canel.The reforms do, however, recognise a limited role for the free market and private investment, but only under Communist Party control.Cuba’s outlawed opposition had campaigned hard on social media for a “no” vote.Normally, it pushes for abstention, but this was a rare opportunity to vote “no” to the one-party communist regime.The “yes” campaign benefited from omnipresence in the media, which is controlled by the state, as well as in public spaces.The government only needed a simple majority for the reforms to pass and had portrayed a ‘no’ vote as unpatriotic.The text of the reforms had undergone extensive public debate between August and November, with several changes made before the final version was submitted to the referendum.Before becoming official, the reforms must be proclaimed by the National Assembly, probably during a session in April, and then published by the Official Gazette.Authorities said more than 84 per cent of registered voters cast ballots, but the victory margin was tighter than Cuba is used to.The 1976 constitution, for example, received 97.7 per cent support.”The country has changed and it’s a different constitution with more complications,” Alzugaray said.last_img read more

Volunteers Are Helping With Water Rescue Efforts

0 Comments

first_imgBruce Margolis– / 4Rescue efforts have been underway for nearly a week now. Emergency responders have been working tirelessly around the clock, and volunteers are pitching in to rescue victims of Tropical Storm Harvey.Bellville resident Bruce Margolis says he has organized a volunteer rescue team—made of 7 boats and about 14 volunteers, so far.News 88.7 caught up with him, before he headed over to Memorial and Kirkwood, on the Westside. Margolis says some on his team are retired emergency responders, and they’re also using boats from other cities and states. “We’ve got Florida here, we’ve got Fort Worth, we’ve got Dallas, we’ve got local ones. We’ve got Michigan on the way. We’ve got more [from] Florida on the way, too,” he said.While resources are coming in from other cities, Margolis says being a local resident is also an advantage to rescue efforts.“We know the area better than a lot of the folks coming in from out of state, or around the state,” he said. “We try to get to the places they’re not.”Margolis has been posting some of his team’s rescue efforts on social media.Margolis says emotions run high, for both the evacuees and the rescue team.“It’s emotional, when you rescue a baby,” he said. “Or you see that senior citizen who can’t walk and we’re having to carry them through the water.”He says they ask for them to take only the very bare essentials.“There’s a lot of nervousness. They have got all the anxiety and all the emotions of leaving everything behind,” says Margolis. “They literally have the clothes on their back. Some of them have a bag, some of them have a couple suitcases, and lot of them have just what they’re wearing.”He says some people in rescue areas have refused to go with them, and they’ve lost count of how many people they have rescued. 00:00 /00:49 X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Share Listenlast_img read more

Tourism department gears up to project Kolkata as MICE hotspot

0 Comments

first_imgKolkata: The state Tourism department will leave no stones unturned to project Kolkata as a destination for MICE (Meeting, Incentive, Conference, and Events) tourism, with the 11th edition of the flagship event Conventions India Conclave (CIC) to be held at the Biswa Bangla Tourism Centre at New Town from August 29 to 31.The CIC is hosted by the India Convention Promotion Bureau (ICPB), a body sponsored by the Union Ministry of Tourism.”We need to provide a boost to the tremendous MICE tourism potential in the city. There will be participation from various states and industry organisations from around the world. We need to take these opinion makers to explore the various places in Bengal, so that they can witness the unique tourism opportunities in the state. We will urge the organisers to urge them to visit various tourist spots in the state and we will be making the best of arrangements for them,” said Atri Bhattacharya, principal secretary of the state Tourism department. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeIt may be mentioned that this is the first time when Bengal will be hosting the CIC, whose objective is to showcase Kolkata as an upcoming MICE destination. The CIC has been held at various other venues like Mumbai, Delhi, Jaipur and Hyderabad, but never in Bengal.”With the state-of-the-art Biswa Bangla Convention Centre (BBCC) in New Town and around 1,500 hotel rooms of five star category in close proximity to the centre, there is no reason why Kolkata cannot emerge as a favourite MICE destination,” said Debashis Sen, chairman of Housing & Infrastructure Development Corporation (HIDCO), which has constructed the BBCC.Participation of around 250 delegates from a number of countries in the world will include domestic and international buyers and exhibitors.last_img read more

Costa Rica makes nuclear fusion history with plasma discharge

0 Comments

first_img“We must understand that [plasma] is universal, all the stars in our universe produce energy from fusion,” he said, adding that it’s a safe and environmentally-friendly source of energy that doesn’t generate greenhouse gases.It’s also theoretically an unlimited source of energy, using hydrogen, the most abundant element in the universe.David Gates, the stellarator physics leader at Princeton’s Plasma Physics Lab (PPPL), sent a video message to Costa Rica, in which he welcomed the country to the small group of nations that have managed to produce high-temperature plasma.“We welcome Costa Rica to the world of international collaboration in physics and stellarator reactors,” Gates said. “We’re very excited to continue the cooperation between our two universities,” he said. TEC’s Iván Vargas is currently doing an internship at the Princeton lab.Government officials, professors, students and other special guests observed the experiment through the live broadcast from one of TEC’s campus auditoriums. Scientists from various countries, government officials, TEC professors and special guests watch a live broadcast of the first discharge of plasma from Costa Rica’s Stellarator-1 on June 29, 2016. (Via TEC)The next stageVargas said the first test was aimed at controlling the plasma discharge. Researchers also wanted to verify the stellarator’s capacity to control plasma temperatures, which reach above 300,000 degrees Celcius (540,000 Fahrenheit).Researchers will now focus on the engineering aspects of the device and the physical properties of the plasma it can create.“Then we will keep working on improvements to the device and in the future, we’ll focus on improving its capacity,” Vargas said.Plasma applications go beyond energy. There are ongoing investigations of plasma for use in medicine for cancer and skin treatment, and dentistry.Plasma also has potential for use in the textile industry, for water purification, waste treatment and for energy generation through plasma gasification.Costa Rican physicist and former NASA astronaut Franklin Chang Díaz is also working on the development of plasma-based space propulsion systems for NASA.Chang’s VASIMR plasma engine is currently in the testing phase and is considered the leading rocket propulsion technology for taking the first manned mission to Mars.

The stellarator looks to reproduce the energy of stars, which are natural fusion reactors.In stars, the force of gravity and high temperatures fuse together the nuclei of atoms, releasing energy. “We’re recreating on Earth the system used by the universe to generate its main energy source,” Vargas said.Take a virtual tour of Costa Rica’s Stellarator-1:center_img Researchers at the Technology Institute of Costa Rica (TEC) announced the first discharge of high temperature plasma in Latin America on Wednesday, joining an elite group of countries who have made advances in harnessing nuclear fusion to produce clean energy.To produce the discharge, TEC physicists used a device called a stellarator built on the university’s campus in Cartago province.The first discharge of Costa Rica’s Stellarator-1 (SCR-1) lasted only 4.5 seconds but is considered the most complex applied physics research conducted in the country, TEC officials said during a special ceremony held Wednesday and broadcast live.Costa Rica is just the sixth country in the world to have developed a stellarator, along with the U.S., Japan, Spain, Australia and Germany, according to a news release from TEC.The scientific achievement took six years of research and an investment of $500,000.Iván Vargas, coordinator of TEC’s Plasma Laboratory for Fusion Energy, said that one gram of energy from the stellarator can generate up to 26,000 kilowatt hours (kWh), enough to power 80 homes for a full month. Plasma technology opens the possibility to generate 100 times more power than a hydroelectric plant.According to Vargas, plasma is seen by many in the scientific world as the energy of the future — clean and theoretically inexhaustible.Watch the first high-temperature plasma discharge produced by the SCR-1 (with voiceover in English):last_img read more

Poll Majority of Americans favor diplomatic ties with Cuba

0 Comments

first_imgThere is some momentum in Congress, however, to lift the trade embargo.Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., backs a bipartisan bill in the Senate to lift the embargo, which she said must be done for the U.S. to avoid losing investment opportunities that will come with loosening of travel restrictions to the island.“Once millions of American tourists are going, they will need places to stay and they will need food to eat. … So when they come, they are going to be starting to sleep in Spanish hotels and eat German foods because those countries will be able to supply what they need in the tourism industry, not to mention the computers and Wi-Fi and everything else,” Klobuchar said in an interview.She predicted the legislation, which has 20 co-sponsors so far, would pass, although maybe not this year. “I know there are some people who have long been opposed to this,” she said.Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey thinks the Obama administration’s work to restore relations is an attempt to validate the Castro regime’s “brutal behavior.”“I remain deeply concerned with ongoing human rights violations in Cuba,” Menendez said Monday. “There have been over 2,800 political arrests on the island this year alone.” Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility The resumption of normal ties ended decades of acrimony between the two nations that was hardened when President John F. Kennedy and Cuba’s Fidel Castro fought over Soviet expansion in the Americas. The new diplomatic status, however, does not erase lingering disputes, such as mutual claims for economic reparations, Havana’s desire to end a more than 50-year-old trade embargo and the U.S. push for Cuba to improve human rights and democracy.The new poll also found that 58 percent of Americans approve of President Barack Obama’s handling of the U.S. relationship with Havana while 40 disapprove. By contrast, only 39 percent approve of his handling of the U.S. role in world affairs more generally, while 59 percent disapprove.“I just disapprove of his politics in general,” said Julie Smith, 40, a university administrator from Bowling Green, Kentucky. “I just don’t think that us trying to improve relations with Cuba is beneficial to the United States.”Respondents were split on what to do about the sanctions on Cuba. Forty-eight percent thought they should be decreased or eliminated entirely while 47 percent favored keeping them at their current level or increasing them. Five percent didn’t answer. The story was different when it came to Iran.Seventy-seven percent said they thought sanctions on Tehran should be kept where they are or increased, according to the poll, which was conducted just days before the U.S. signed an agreement to curb Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for economic sanctions relief. Under the agreement, Iran’s nuclear program will be curbed for a decade in exchange for potentially hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of relief from international sanctions.Mary Barry, 57, of Arlington, Texas, is happy that the Obama administration opened diplomatic efforts with both Cuba and Iran, but is wary about lifting sanctions on the two countries.“I think we need to have diplomatic relations with Iran and monitor their nuclear weapon,” said Berry, who works producing and staging corporate business meetings. But, she said: “I think we need to keep the sanctions in place on Iran to make sure they’re doing what they’ve promised they’re going to do because I think Iran is a country that you can’t really trust.”On Cuba, she thinks it’s “just time” to restore diplomatic relations. But she favors a gradual lifting of sanctions on Cuba. “I don’t think they should be lifted immediately,” she said.

Doctors urge government to focus on serious understaffing at hospitals Updated

0 Comments

first_imgInstead of using state budgets to refer patients to the private sector, the health ministry should deal with the serious understaffing problem at public hospitals, the head of the state doctors’ union (PASYKI) said on Wednesday.Commenting on a series of tweets posted by Health Minister Giorgos Pamboridis on Tuesday warning PASYKI that unless state hospitals became autonomous, the public health sector would die, union head Soteris Koumas said that before autonomy is implemented, state hospitals must be reorganised.Dates for the implementation of hospital autonomy, which is a basic pre-requisite for the implementation of the National Health Scheme (NHS), have been constantly delayed following disagreements over provisions.The goal is for state hospitals to achieve legal, administrative and financial independence but the ministry and unions of health professionals disagree over labour issues in reaching that goal.“We were the first to propose administrative and financial autonomy of state hospitals, but with supervision from the health ministry,” Koumas told the Cyprus Mail.He also said that despite Pamboridis’ statements when he became minister that he would support state hospitals, as they were the backbone of the health system, he said that they are still waiting.”We believe that corrective moves need to be made. State hospitals are understaffed,” he said.The Limassol state hospital’s ophthalmology department and Paphos’ state hospital gynaecology department only operate with one doctor each, Koumas said. He added that in both cases, from the initial four doctors staffing each of the two departments, only two remained and one of them is sick, thus these departments now operate with one doctor each.“On the one hand they tell us there is no budget to hire doctors, on the other hand there is no interest on behalf of doctors to work in the state sector,” he said.He added that no doctor after studying for 12 years chooses to work in the public sector because the pay is lower and working conditions inferior compared to the private sector.State hospitals need to be boosted with immediate measures, Koumas said. He added that other hospital departments are losing medical staff as well.Commenting on government statements that a study indicated there is a surplus of nurses and doctors, he said “Why are then patient waiting lists rapidly increasing?”.PASYKI announced that they would announce later in the month whether they would proceed with measures.Pamporidis later in the day said he was “surprised to watch PASYKI attempting to conduct a dialogue on the problems of public hospitals through the press”.“PASYKI has not asked to meet me to ask me these questions,” Pamboridis said. He added that he has made appeals to the leadership of PASYKI many times and that he explained to them that “none of the long standing problems of public hospitals can be resolved within the inadequate and inflexible framework of the public sector”.He also said he invited them to engage in sincere dialogue to establish an independent autonomous health organisation to be in charge of public hospitals and primary care of the state insured.“Unfortunately, PASYKI rejected the establishment of this agency and insists that our hospitals remain under government control, ignoring that this is precisely the source of most problems experienced by patients but also the state health professionals themselves”.You May LikeYahoo SearchThe Early Signs Of Type 2 Diabetes.
