Alberta suspends caribou protection plan asks for assistance from OttawaAlberta suspends caribou protection plan asks for assistance from Ottawa

first_imgEDMONTON – Alberta is suspending portions of its draft plan to protect threatened woodland caribou, saying more research needs to be done and that Ottawa needs to help out.Environment Minister Shannon Phillips told the house Monday the province is acting on concerns about the economic impacts of the protection plan.“The federal Species at Risk Act is an extremely inflexible instrument that has already had negative economic consequences (in Alberta),” said Phillips. “We are going to do our best to make sure that we protect jobs on this.”She said she has sent that message in a letter to her federal counterpart, Catherine McKenna.Phillips is urging the federal government to help Alberta come up with a workable solution rather than have Ottawa impose an environmental protection order.A statement issued by McKenna’s office late Monday said Ottawa is determined to support the protection and recovery of caribou.“Our government is committed to protecting and conserving species at risk by putting in place conservation measures based on science, collaboration and robust recovery strategies,” the email stated. “Boreal caribou is an iconic species and a key indicator of a healthy boreal forest.”The statement added that Ottawa will continue to work with Alberta and others to ensure the conservation of the iconic species.Alberta’s draft plan is in response to an October federal deadline under the Species at Risk Act, and is designed to help threatened woodland caribou recover in 15 different ranges.The province released its draft plan on Dec. 19 and then held a series of town hall meetings.“The public meetings were attended by thousands of Albertans who are concerned about the impact caribou range plans will have on their communities and on the industries that support those communities,” stated Phillips’ letter, which was co-signed by Energy Minister Marg McCuaig-Boyd.The federal government has the option of imposing an environmental protection order if a province doesn’t come up with a plan to protect the caribou. The order would halt any development, such as oil drilling, that could harm the animals.The province plans to spend more than $85 million in the next five years to restore caribou habitat by eliminating seismic lines, building birthing pens and bringing in other measures.It has already invested $9.2 million and the estimated cost over the next 40 years is $1 billion.Phillips said the feds need to step up on planning and consultation, and on the money side as well.“Caribou recovery cannot occur without an infusion of federal funds to restore habitat necessary to ensure population growth,” she wrote.“While we need more time and partnership from the federal government on this matter, we also need your support in not prematurely implementing federal protection orders that will not have effective outcomes for Canadians and Albertans.”last_img read more

Moroccan Universities Rank Last on Times Higher Educations RatingsMoroccan Universities Rank Last on Times Higher Educations Ratings

Rabat – Moroccan universities are not faring well on the international scale, according to the latest World Universities Ranking published by the British magazine Times Higher Education.As the only global university performance table to judge world class universities across 77 countries, the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2016-2017 lists the 980 top universities in the world.Based on universities’ teaching methods, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook, Moroccan universities came at the bottom of the list, as Marrakech’s University of Cadi Ayyad and Rabat’s Mohammed V University were ranked as the 801th and 802th among the 980 listed institutions. Cadi Ayyad University, one of the most prestigious institutions in Morocco registered a sharp decline in its ranking, as in the 2015 edition of the report, the university came in the 301st position.Many African universities were ranked ahead of their Moroccan counterparts, with South Africa’s Cape Town University ranked 171st, although it fell 23 points in the ranking compared to the previous year (148th).Despite its decline, the University of Uganda was ranked 401st, while the University of Guinnessy ranked between 601st and 800th.Arab universities also came ahead of their Moroccan counterparts.

Number of patients forced on to mixedsex wards soars 70 in oneNumber of patients forced on to mixedsex wards soars 70 in one

first_imgKatherine Murphy, chief executive at the Patients Association, said: “Single-sex wards are an important component of preserving patient dignity in hospitals.”It is really concerning that over the past year there has been a sharp increase in the number of patients being placed on mixed-sex wards, as a result of mounting hospital pressures.”Protecting standards of patient safety must remain at the very heart of the NHS, and eliminating mixed-sex hospital accommodation is central part of this.”Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s health spokesman, said: “Tory cuts to social care have seen hospital attendances rocket and now the key standard of single-sex wards is being undermined.”The Prime Minister needs to get a grip and explain what she is going to do to fix the crisis she has created.”Former Liberal Democrat health minister Norman Lamb said: “This is an embarrassment for the Health Secretary, who made great claims about the significant reduction in mixed-sex wards during the Coalition years.”There is no excuse for failing to afford people the basic dignity of single-sex accommodation in a modern health service. This is a result of the impossible financial pressure the NHS is under.” Ministers vowed to end the practice in 2010 following widespread public outcry and hospitals were ordered to pay out £250 for every mixed-sex breach – defined as a night spent by a patient on a mixed-sex ward.Then in October 2014 Jeremy Hunt hailed victory in war on mixed sex wards as figures showed the numbers were falling.But the latest NHS England figures have showed that there were 739 breaches in December, up from 339 in the same month in 2015.Many patients find having to share wards embarrassing. And research has shown they are at greater risk of attack.Dr Jacqueline McKenna, of the overseeing body NHS Improvement, blamed “busy” hospitals and said the priority was “the need to treat”.Latest figures from NHS England obtained by Labour show that in December alone there were 739 mixed-sex breaches.In fact a quarter of hospital trusts – 37 out of 152 – put a patient on a mixed-sex ward at least once last month.The worst was Darent Valley Hospital in Dartford, run by Dartford and Gravesham trust, which had 151 breaches.Another 87 breaches were recorded by the William Harvey Hospital in Ashford, run by East Kent Hospitals. The number of patients being forced on to mixed-sex wards has almost tripled despite a government pledge to crack down on the controversial practice.More than 7,100 had to share rooms with the opposite sex last year as the NHS struggled with a shortage of beds.That was —up from 2,585 in 2014 and 70 per cent higher than the number in 2015.

Tenova Pyromet commissions new ferrochrome furnaces in OrissaTenova Pyromet commissions new ferrochrome furnaces in Orissa

first_imgTenova Pyromet, part of Tenova Mining & Minerals, has successfully commissioned 4 x 16.5 MVA ferrochrome (FeCr) furnaces for Visa Bao’s new plant near Jajpur in Orissa, India. Tenova Pyromet supplied its patented lower electrode equipment for the FeCr furnaces, with the first furnace being switched in in June 2013, and the remaining three to be switched in over the second half of 2013. Visa Bao is a joint venture between VISA Steel, a leading player in the Indian special steel and FeCr sector, and Baosteel, China. Its new 100,000 t/y FeCr plant in Orissa will produce high carbon FeCr for sale in India and for export to China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Europe, and the US amongst others. VISA Steel has a Chrome Ore Beneficiation Plant (COBP) at Golagaon, Odisha, which produces high-grade chromite concentrates through the beneficiation of low-grade chromite ore by gravity separation.With the scope of the contract covering key equipment supply for the furnaces for this greenfield project, Tenova Pyromet designed, engineered, manufactured and supplied the lower electrode assembly, comprising of Tenova Pyromet’s patented pressure ring and contact shoe equipment. The pressure ring is designed to prevent electrode breakages by enclosing and protecting the lower electrode equipment. The skirt is forged from a solid slab of high conductivity, high purity copper, providing protection for the contact shoes and other critical components. The design produces a uniform ambient temperature and electrical current distribution within the electrode baking zone around the contact shoes, resulting in enhanced electrode baking profiles.Tenova Pyromet’s association with VISA Steel stretches back to 2006 when it supplied similar equipment for 2 x 16.5 MVA FeCr furnaces and says that VISA Steel’s experience with this equipment convinced it of the advanced performance offered by Pyromet technology in terms of equipment performance and furnace availability. “At Tenova Pyromet we are proud of our reputation in India as a world class furnace designer, with extensive experience in the Indian ferroalloys market. As with VISA Steel, our track record in India features a number of repeat orders from major players in both the private and state sector ferroalloy industry,” said Chris Oertel, Managing Director of Tenova Pyromet. “last_img read more

Do you work indoors Heres why you need to be wary ofDo you work indoors Heres why you need to be wary of

first_img http://jrnl.ie/4084057 THE IRISH CANCER SOCIETY is warning people who work indoors to protect themselves against sun damage as Ireland prepares to embrace another prolonged spell of sunshine.Temperatures are set to top 20 degrees this weekend and Met Eireann is forecasting barbecue weather for most of next week, with thermometers predicted to reach the mid-20s and sometimes higher.As the sunshine approaches the Irish Cancer Society is warning people who work indoors that they need to be prepared or they risk suffering long-term skin damage.Kevin O’Hagan, a Cancer Prevention Manager with the society, says that people routinely underestimate the power of the Irish sun and don’t realise that it can damage their skin even if they are only exposed to it in short bursts.O’Hagan said that people who work indoors often go out unprepared for the times that they will be in the sun.“People who are inside a lot often go out quickly and without planning. We’re warning people to be careful in the sun. We’re advising them to think ahead and bring a hat, bring sunscreen,” he said.Ireland has one of the highest rates of melanoma in Europe. The skin cancer is highly preventable but Irish people are particularly vulnerable because of the high rate of fair skin.“We tend to burn. If you get repeat sunburn your risk goes up substantially,” O’Hagan explained. By Ceimin Burke Share31 Tweet Email2 Do you work indoors? Here’s why you need to be wary of the sun – even when it’s cloudy out People are being warned that their skin can still be damaged on cloudy days. 14 Comments If you suffer a painful sunburn every two years that can triple your risk of melanoma cancer. 20,031 Views center_img Between 30% and 40% of UV rays penetrate through cloud cover. So we still recommend people to be mindful of the sun from May until September, even on cloudy days.When the cancer society carried out research which monitored the UV index in Ireland the study found that 90% of summer days had levels of UV rays which climbed above 3 on the UV index, meaning they were high enough to damage skin.The highest levels were registered in the south and west of the country. Source: Met EireannThe Irish Cancer Society is reminding people to follow its ‘SunSmart Code’ to stay safe in the sun.The code advises people to seek the shade between 11am and 3pm. It also says to wear appropriate clothing including hats and sunglasses and to wear sunscreen of at least SPF 30, which should be applied 20 minutes before going outdoors.Parents are also being warned that it’s particularly important that children are sun safe because most UV damage is caused during childhood and adolescence. Office workers and people who live in cities are being told to take care because the National Cancer Registry map of skin cancer incidence rates reveals that skin cancers are particularly high in urban areas as well as on the south coast.One of the contributors to skin cancer rates in Ireland is the unpredictability of the climate.“Even on cloudy days there’s often still enough UV (ultrviolet rays) to damage skin,” O’Hagan says.

Islamic State claims responsibility for Berlin market attackIslamic State claims responsibility for Berlin market attack

first_imgBERLIN — The Islamic State group claimed responsibility Tuesday for a truck attack on a crowded Berlin Christmas market that left 12 people dead and nearly 50 injured, as German security forces hunted for the perpetrator after releasing a man from custody for lack of evidence.IS said in a statement from its Amaq news agency that the attacker “in Berlin is a soldier of the Islamic State and carried out the attack in response to calls for targeting citizens of the Crusader coalition.”Germany is not involved in anti-IS combat operations, but has Tornado jets and a refueling plane stationed in Turkey in support of the coalition fighting militants in Syria, as well as a frigate protecting a French aircraft carrier in the Mediterranean, among other assets.The claim of responsibility came not long after German prosecutors said they’d released a man picked up on Monday night near the scene of the attack, initially suspected of driving the truck. The man, a Pakistani citizen who came to Germany last year, had been picked up based on a description of a suspect who jumped out of the truck and fled.But federal prosecutors said late Tuesday that he denied any involvement and they had found no forensic evidence proving he was in the cab during the rampage.last_img read more

ASAWISHH Program Concludes Tilapia Feeding Demonstrations in PakistanASAWISHH Program Concludes Tilapia Feeding Demonstrations in Pakistan

first_imgASA’s World Initiative for Soy in Human Health (WISHH) program recently completed tilapia feeding demonstrations at seven sites throughout Pakistan utilizing floating fish feed produced with U.S. soybean meal.Tilapia are harvested following a months-long soy-based feeding demonstration in Pakistan. (WISHH photo)The demonstration was a strong success – the fish grew quickly and to a market size that was considerably larger than any tilapia that had been in the market place previously. Farmers recognized the critical advantages of the floating feed as they were better able to ascertain the health of their fish, carefully adjust feeding to the actual consumption rate of the fish, and achieve feed conversion ratios that were 100 to 200 percent improvements on the locally available non-floating feed with low soybean content.The farmer with the most successful harvest participated in Kansas State University’s (KSU) Aquaculture Short Course in July 2012, where he learned skills vital to the improvement of his business. KSU is a partner with WISHH in the three-year FEEDing Pakistan program funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.last_img read more

Sealaska back in seafood businessSealaska back in seafood business

first_imgSoutheast Alaska’s regional Native corporation is back in the seafood business. Juneau-based Sealaska on Monday announced the purchase of a minority share of a Seattle processing plant.Download AudioIndependent Packers Corp. is a specialty plant that processes about 50 million pounds of seafood annually.It’s the first of several investments the corporation plans to announce this year.Sealaska Chief Operating Officer Terry Downes said it’s a successful enterprise insulated from some of the industry’s ups and downs.“The reason we like the business is because it’s in the middle of the supply chain,” Downes said. “They touch a lot of different seafood companies. They never actually own the resource itself, so they’re not exposed to commodity price fluctuations. So the earnings are more stable.Sealaska bought less than 50 percent of the processing company, but Downes said it will be a partnership. He said a confidentiality agreement prohibits him from releasing the amount invested or exact percent purchased.He said it’s part of a corporate strategy adopted in 2012.“In the past Sealaska had owned businesses at arm’s length, like plastics, injection molding and things like that,” Downes said. “They didn’t fit geographically and they didn’t fit with respect to the sector and they didn’t feel like business that really felt like part of Sealaska, in its ownership.”Sealaska has bought and sold companies for years, looking for new sources of revenue. But not everyone supports that strategy.Brad Fluetsch, a Juneau financial manager and Sealaska board candidate, said the purchases should stop. He’s not ready to address the latest investment. But he said the stock market is a better bet.“Kavilko, the ANCSA corporation for the community of Kasaan, they have the right model,” Fluetsch said. “Just be a passive portfolio company. They don’t own any operating business.”Independent Packers Corp. employs about 180 people.Downes said its Seattle location puts it near thousands of Pacific Northwest shareholders. He hopes some find jobs there, but the investment agreement does not call for shareholder hire.Other purchases are planned. Downes said the next to be announced will be part of Sealaska’s environmental services arm.“It specializes in monitoring the ocean and it’s based in Alaska,” Downes said. “It has global capability, but it does a lot of work in Alaska.”Sealaska has invested in fisheries before. There was Ocean Beauty Seafoods in the 1980s, but it was sold. More recently, the corporation put money into reopening Kake’s fish-processing plant. It’s also invested in oyster farming.last_img read more

Aaron Rodgers doesnt belong in the GOAT debateAaron Rodgers doesnt belong in the GOAT debate

first_imgAaron Rodgers doesn’t belong in the G.O.A.T. debateThe Packers and Aaron Rodgers put on another lackluster performance in a disappointing 24-17 loss to NFC North rival Minnesota, and Colin thinks it’s time to take him out of the longstanding G.O.A.T. debate with Tom Brady.Against the Vikings, Rodgers only passed for 198 yards and a TD, is now 1-9 in his last 10 games on the road with a supporting cast that’s far better than his cultish defenders will ever admit. Rodgers is a Hall of Fame talent, but his resume isn’t good enough to include him in the discussion of greatest QB of all-time.

Tim Bucher Wants to Build a Master Database of Your Life MemoriesTim Bucher Wants to Build a Master Database of Your Life Memories

first_imgDecember 18, 2013 Imagine what it would be like if all of your computing devices — mobile phone, tablet, desktop computer, laptop — shared photos and videos amongst themselves, and did it quietly and automatically, so that you could access all of your media files on any device. Now imagine if the devices could do this without using the cloud, and were smart enough not to transfer data when your battery was running low. That kind of service, says serial entrepreneur Tim Bucher, would provide “a consistent view of your entire life.”But then again, he would say that. It’s the kind of thing you say when you’ve spent the past year of your life thinking about issues of media storage, device syncing, peer-to-peer communications and about how pushing the envelope on all of these things can give average people a hassle-free experience of their documented lives.Bucher is the founder and chief executive of Lyve Minds, Inc., a 1-year-old startup that is about to come out of stealth mode. Like many of-the-moment startups, Lyve, as the company is informally known, is both a hardware and a software company. It’s offering a service that works in conjunction with Lyve’s proprietary apps and a sleek box-shaped device called the Lyve Home.Lyve’s service captures, collects and sorts your photos and videos, creating a full thumbnail index. This index is made available on every device. The service then tells your devices how to move data between them – for example storing new files on a device with plenty of free space, and fetching high-resolution images that correspond to thumbnails upon request. “We synchronize the metadata amongst all the devices, and then the ‘brain’ — the head of the file system — gives these devices commands,” Bucher says.Related: Why Some Smart Business Moguls Still Use ‘Dumb Phones’If that sounds complicated, think of it like your Facebook Timeline, only private, comprehensive and mobile. You will carry it with you wherever you go — and that “it” which the service creates, in Bucher’s words, is “a master database of your life memories.”Bucher has held senior positions at Microsoft, Apple and Dell, and is one of the few men – if not the only man – who has worked directly for Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and Michael Dell. When it came to hiring for the Cupertino, Calif.-based Lyve, Bucher’s deep background in the American tech sector helped him to poach talent from Netflix and other top companies. He now employs about 100 people.All that time spent with Jobs appears to have taught Bucher the value of both secrecy and showmanship. Lyve will announce its innovations in a press release on Wednesday, but the big reveal won’t take place until the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next month. The mobile apps will be released publicly in March, after about two months of private beta testing.A key component of Lyve’s initial release will be the Lyve Home, which provides redundancy for your data. By backing up your photos and videos on the Home device, the service enables you to access these files even when their device of origin — say, your laptop — is turned off.For most users, the Lyve Home will be the highest-capacity device they own; it can handle 6 million photos and many months of video. But the Lyve Home device is more than an external hard drive, more than a “server for your mobile life,” Bucher says. He is keeping some features of the device, which will retail for $299, under wraps until March.Related: The Secrets of the World’s Most Successful Mobile AppsUnlike Dropbox and other cloud services that sync with the user’s devices, Lyve’s service won’t be “one sync fits all,” Bucher says. That is, it won’t place a full copy of your total photo and video library on all of your devices — some of which may have a great deal of storage space and others not so much. “We realize that your devices are not created equal, nor should what gets synchronized to and from each be equal,” says Bucher.Indeed, Lyve exploits the uniqueness of each device in its algorithms. It recognizes, for instance, that a desktop computer is less likely to get lost than a laptop, and a laptop less likely than a phone. “There are all these different algorithm values that we use to tell each device how to move and copy data,” says Bucher. And this activity happens in the background, at a low priority; it never takes over your device, he says. If your battery is low, Lyve will wait until it you recharge it before resuming its operations.Lyve’s service is similarly savvy when it comes to bandwidth. Although your devices can pass photos and videos back and forth using either Wi-Fi or cellular networks, the service knows that sending large files over cellular networks might exceed your monthly data allotment. It won’t send anything over cell networks except metadata unless you tell it to.Lyve raised a Series A round from angel investors and large institutional investors, Bucher says, though he declines to provide specifics. For the time being, the company’s revenue model will depend largely on selling Home devices. But in Lyve version 2.0, says Bucher, the Home device will no longer be necessary, and the company will instead release premium features “that people will be willing to pay for.”Which is not to say that he isn’t proud of version 1.0. “We love devices as a society,” he says, referring to the Home box’s appeal. And as devices go, he thinks he can offer you a pretty good one.Related: Intel’s Futurist: We’ll Soon Be Living in Computers Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.

Omnyx’s digital platform will seek to enable clinicians to share images virtually, interpret results using advanced algorithms and reduce costs associated with diagnosis. The benefit to patients could include reducing medical errors, improved turnaround time for lab results and integrating pathology information as part of his or her electronic medical record.GE and UPMC have appointed Gene Cartwright, a 26-year healthcare veteran and former president of GE Healthcare’s molecular diagnostics, as CEO of Omnyx. Operating as an independent company, with financial support from both GE and UPMC, Omnyx, will be governed by an executive board. The company will be located at a new headquarters in Pittsburgh, with additional offices in Piscataway, NJ and other GE Healthcare facilities.

It was developed in response to a growing clinical need for assessing soft tissues in the vicinity of arthroplasty and MR conditional instrumentation.  It is estimated that by 2030, arthroplasty revisions in the United States will increase by 137 percent for hips and 601 percent for knees from 2005 levels. Images generated by MAVRIC SL are intended provide data that may be useful in helping clinicians to image tissue adjacent to the MR conditional instrumentation and take action to correct complications from joint implants. Noise is one of the major complaints from patients who undergo an MRI exam. One feature of DV24.0 is Silent Scan, a technology introduced last year that is designed to reduce MR scanner noise to near ambient (background) sound levels. With this first-to-market technology, clinicians can now scan patients in silence using T1, PD, MRA acquisitions, as well as a Propeller motion-insensitive-based implementation of T2 and Flair as part of the Silent Neuro exam package. DV24.0 can increase productivity up to 30 percent compared to previous generations. These improvements are possible due to workflow enhancements based on the new eXpress PreScan and Workflow 2.0 features. The new enhancements will not only increase productivity, but also drive efficiency through reducing the number of mouse clicks for technologists.
