Date limite pour les soumissions écrites sur la stratégie de lénergie


first_imgLe vendredi 11 janvier est la date limite pour les soumissions écrites sur la stratégie de l’énergie renouvelée et le plan d’action sur les changements climatiques de la Nouvelle-Écosse. La province renouvelle sa stratégie de l’énergie pour atteindre les objectifs établis par la loi sur les objectifs environnementaux et la prospérité durable de la Nouvelle-Écosse (Environmental Goals and Sustainable Prosperity Act), adoptée au printemps 2007. En vertu de cette loi, la Nouvelle-Écosse a établi l’objectif d’offrir l’un des environnements les plus propres et les plus durables au monde d’ici 2020. « La province a établi une échéance de 2020 pour la réduction des émissions de gaz à effet de serre à 10 pour cent de moins que les niveaux de 1990, » a dit Richard Hurlburt, ministre de l’Énergie. « Nous nous engageons à atteindre cet objectif tout en maintenant une économie solide et croissante. » La province demande l’opinion du public sur une stratégie de l’énergie renouvelée et un plan d’action sur les changements climatiques. Deux documents intitulés « Document de consultation : Stratégie de l’énergie renouvelée » et « Document de travail en vue de l’élaboration du plan d’action sur les changements climatiques en Nouvelle-Écosse » ont été créés afin d’engager les discussions du public. Le premier document traite de la politique générale en matière d’énergie, et le deuxième traite des changements climatiques, particulièrement des mesures à prendre pour réduire les émissions de gaz à effet de serre. Les documents sont disponibles en ligne, en français et en anglais, à l’adresse www.gov.ns.ca/energy/energystrategy . Les soumissions peuvent être envoyées par la poste à Stratégie de l’énergie, C. P. 2664, Halifax (N.-É.), B3J 3P7 ou par courriel à l’adresse energystrategy@gov.ns.ca. Le mois dernier, le ministère de l’Énergie a conclu une douzaine d’ateliers publics de consultation sur la stratégie de l’énergie à différents endroits de la province. Les renseignements obtenus lors des ateliers et par les soumissions écrites serviront à créer la stratégie d’énergie et le plan d’action sur les changements climatiques, dont la publication est prévue au printemps.last_img read more


Nova Scotia and UK Collaborate on Tidal Industry Development


first_imgNova Scotia and the United Kingdom will work together to advance tidal research to help the future development of the industry. A memorandum of understanding between the province, the Offshore Energy Research Association of Nova Scotia and the United Kingdom’s Technology Strategy Board will encourage joint research in order to improve the technology required to generate electricity using high tides like those in the Bay of Fundy. Energy Minister Andrew Younger, executive director Stephen Dempsey of the Offshore Energy Research Association of Nova Scotia and the British Deputy High Commissioner to Canada, Corin Robertson, on behalf of the Technology Strategy Board, announced the agreement today, March 4, in Halifax. “Bringing together tidal energy leaders from Nova Scotia and the U.K. will help advance efforts to harness the power of Fundy tides,” said Mr. Younger. “Collaborating on tidal development will help us save money and increase our research capacity. It will also create opportunities for businesses and researchers in both Nova Scotia and the United Kingdom.” Offshore Energy Research Association of Nova Scotia and the Technology Strategy Board are contributing $250,000 each towards the initiative. They will oversee the majority of the work associated with the memorandum. It outlines areas of collaboration including environmental sensing research and instrumentation technologies, to better understand high flow tidal resources and their environment located within the Bay of Fundy, and Orkney, Scotland. Joint request for proposals will be issued for research projects in both Canada and the U.K. to explore these and other tidal-related topics. The first request will be issued later this year and will focus on environmental sensing research to better understand and validate devices for tidal development and their impact on the environment. Both the Offshore Energy Research Association of Nova Scotia and the Technology Strategy Board lead research efforts that enable the sustainable development of energy resources, including marine renewable energy, and bring them closer to market, through strategic partnerships with academia, government and industry. “The U.K. sees the development of its marine energy resources as an important step towards meeting our renewable energy objectives,” said Mrs. Robertson. “This memorandum will not only advance the state of research in this area, bringing us closer to grid connectivity and commercial production, but will encourage the development of a low carbon industry with great economic potential. “The U.K. and Canada are global leaders in this space and can work together, leading the world in the development and commercialization of tidal energy.” “Partnering with our colleagues at the Technology Strategy Board and accessing their network will contribute to the development of new technologies, facilitate the creation of renewable energy companies, and stimulate future exports from our province that will pay dividends for years to come,” said Mr. Dempsey. Go to www.oera.ca and www.innovateuk.org for more information. The signing is part of the first-ever pop-up British consulate and British Week in Halifax. The consulate is at Citadel Hill and is open until March 7. Nova Scotians are invited to visit British Week events.

Bharti Airtel to seek shareholders nod for waiver of recovery of excess


first_imgNew Delhi: Bharti Airtel will seek shareholders’ approval for a waiver of recovery of excess remuneration paid to company chairman Sunil Bharti Mittal and CEO Gopal Vittal in 2018-19, the telecom company said Sunday. According to the regulatory filing, Mittal’s remuneration in 2018-19 was Rs 21.19 crore more than the ceiling of 11 per cent of the company’s net profit. Vittal was paid Rs 8.87 crore in excess of that limit in the last fiscal. Bharti Airtel will seek the approval at its annual general meeting to be held on August 14 in New Delhi, the filing said. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscal”…the approval of the members of the Company be and is hereby accorded to ratify and confirm the waiver of recovery of the excess remuneration amounting to Rs 211.90 million paid to Mr Sunil Bharti Mittal, chairman for the financial year 2018-19,” Bharti Airtel said. According to the rule, total managerial remuneration payable by a public company to its directors, including managing director and whole-time director, and its manager in respect of any financial year shall not exceed 11 per cent of the net profits of that company. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostTotal remuneration paid to Mittal was over Rs 31 crore and Vittal was paid Rs 20.9 crore against the ceiling of around Rs 9.8 crore and Rs 12 crore respectively for 2018-19. Bharti Airtel’s revenue and profit have been eroding due to a fierce tariff war after the launch of services by Mukesh Ambani-promoted Reliance Jio. The standalone revenue of Airtel dropped to Rs 49,608 crore while the net loss for the financial year ended on March 31, 2019, was at Rs 1,829 crore against a net profit of Rs 79.2 crore for the previous year. “…the financial performance of the Company in the financial year ended March 31, 2019, did not meet expectations and it is possible that the Company may also have inadequate profits in coming years,” the company said in a notice.last_img read more


Officials concerned budget cuts will take away Ocean Rangers


KETCHIKAN, Alaska — The state official overseeing Alaska’s cruise ship monitoring program is concerned about losing independent environmental inspectors on cruise ships.CoastAlaska reports the inspectors, known as Ocean Rangers, are on the chopping block as Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s budget cuts work their way through the legislature.The State Department of Environmental Conservation’s top budget official, Jeff Rogers, laid out the Dunleavy administration’s case for removing inspectors from cruise ships.But those that work in the state’s cruise ship program note that without onboard inspectors, the state’s authority to monitor pollution from ships would be limited.The head of DEC’s cruise ship monitoring program, Ed White, says the Ocean Rangers have been a “critical part” in the permitting process.”___Information from: KRBD-FM, http://www.ktn.net/krbd/The Associated Press read more


Council agrees on hub strategy


Norfolk council has “hit the re-set button” on the community hub recreation concept in Simcoe.Jan. 14, Norfolk’s Recreation Facilities Advisory Board agreed to a game plan for renewing aging infrastructure in Simcoe. Norfolk council approved the board’s findings Wednesday.“This is a great leap forward on transparency,” Simcoe Coun. Ian Rabbitts said. “This allows us to hit the re-set button and start from Ground Zero.”The resolution erases all previous direction from the previous council.The new council has given the advisory board a mandate to establish a community fundraising program, engage major facility users and local businesses to determine needs now and into the future, and advise county staff on a business case for infrastructure renewal.The latter will be critical when the county prepares grant applications to the Ontario government and the federal government.The chair of the advisory board is Paul Anderson of Walsingham, an engineer attached to the Department of National Defense.Anderson said the board will work “quickly and efficiently,” adding an undertaking of this magnitude will require a large commitment of time and energy.“We’re trying to establish a better battle rhythm for our meetings,” Anderson said. “When you’re talking about design requirements, once-a-month meetings aren’t going to do it.”If the financial stars align, the plan is to build a recreation complex in Simcoe to replace Talbot Gardens, the Simcoe Recreation Centre, and the Adult Community Centre on Pond Street.Bill Cridland, Norfolk’s general manager of community services, added there is an opportunity here to address crowding issues at community services’ head office on Culver Street in Simcoe.The point of departure for Tuesday’s discussion was a report compiled by former Norfolk CAO David Cribbs.The report contains the findings of an engineering firm which said Talbot Gardens and the Simcoe Recreation Centre are in reasonably good shape and should be serviceable for another 20 years.Regarding the report, Cridland said several important details were missing. For one, Cridland said the refrigerated floor and boards at Talbot Gardens are at the point where they should be replaced. That could cost $1 million.Cridland added the deteriorating concrete beneath the seating area at Talbot Gardens has been stabilized but this is a short-term solution. A permanent, long-term repair will also be costly.As for the Annaleise Carr Aquatic Centre at the Rec Centre, Cridland said replacing the 50-year-old swimming pool could cost as much as $13 million if the county includes a separate therapy pool for seniors and users undergoing physiotherapy.All told, Cridland said the cost of renewal is in the range of $45 million. If Norfolk can persuade both Queen’s Park and Ottawa to match a county commitment of $15 million, Norfolk will be close to realizing its vision.Anderson says the project is worth pursuing on a number of counts. Not only is there a need to renew aging infrastructure, modern facilities can be a “social catalyst” for attracting young families and job-creating industries for which worker retention is a priority.Waterford Coun. Kim Huffman, a member of the advisory board, agrees. She said more is at stake than money and state-of-the-art facilities.“It’s not just dollars and cents,” Huffman said. “It’s engagement; it’s retaining youth in our community. It’s about bringing people to our community.”Norfolk staff have been scouting potential locations for a hub for over a year. Anderson would prefer if Norfolk agreed on the new infrastructure it needs before proceeding to site selection. He worries that pre-determining a site might limit what the county can put there.MSonnenberg@postmedia.com read more

Hong Kong des chercheurs veulent stocker des données dans une bactérie


first_imgHong Kong : des chercheurs veulent stocker des données dans une bactérieUn groupe d’étudiants de l’Université chinoise de Hong Kong cherche à stocker d’énormes quantités de données dans un contenant inattendu : la bactérie Escherichia Coli ou “colibacille”, nocive pour l’homme.En France, les archives nationales s’étendent sur plus de 160 kilomètres d’étagères ! Et aux Etats-Unis, ce chiffre est cinq fois plus important. Et si le stockage d’informations dans le futur ne nécessitait plus autant de place ? Voire plus du tout d’étagères ? Un groupe d’étudiants de Hong Kong a essayé de mettre au point une technique pour résoudre ce problème. Tout stocker dans une bactérie, E Coli. Concrètement, qu’est-ce que cela signifie ? “Nous serons capables de conserver toutes nos données dans une boîte contenant des bactéries, au réfrigérateur”, a expliqué à l’AFP Aldrin Yim, un étudiant-chercheur qui participe  au projet de stockage bio, et avait reçu en 2010 la médaille d’or iGem (Compétition internationale de machines génétiquement modifiées), de l’Institut de Tehnologie du Massachussetts.À lire aussiErysipèle : contagion, traitement, de quoi s’agit-il ?Le biostockage – stockage et cryptage de données dans des organismes vivants – est une science récente. Elle existe depuis un peu moins de 10 ans.Une expérience précédente, menée en 2007, était parvenue à des résultats étonnants. Une équipe de l’université japonaise Keio a réussi à encoder l’équation d’Einstein sur la théorie de la relativité (E=MC2) dans l’ADN d’une bactérie commune du sol. Comme les bactéries ne cessent de se reproduire, les informations stockées peuvent alors être conservées durant des milliers d’années.L’équipe de Hong Kong a voulu aller plus loin. Elle souhaite stocker encore plus de données (texte, mais aussi images, vidéo et musique), et pour ce faire, elle a développé une méthode pour les compresser, puis les distribuer dans des cellules bactériologiques. Pour les localiser par la suite, rien de plus facile pour les chercheurs : ils ont cartographié l’ADN de la bactérie. Un seul gramme de bactérie pourrait ainsi stocker l’équivalent d’informations contenues dans 450 disques durs de 2.000 gigabytes !Les chercheurs ont retiré l’ADN des cellules bactériologiques pour le manipuler grâce à des enzymes avant de le replacer dans une nouvelle cellule. Des manipulations similaires à celles qui sont utilisées dans la création d’organismes génétiquement modifiés (OGM) : l’ADN replacé dans la nouvelle cellule a été chargé d’informations.L’avantage des bactéries ? Elles “ne peuvent pas être piratées”, a affirmé à l’AFP Allen Yu, également étudiant chercheur au sein de l’équipe.Le professeur Chan Ting Fung, qui supervise les recherches, précise que les travaux pratiques sont à leurs débuts dans ce domaine. “Mais ce que les étudiants ont essayé de faire est de s’assurer que certains des principes fondamentaux dans ce champ de recherche sont en fait réalisables”, ajoute-t-il.Et concernant le danger sanitaire posé par l’E. Coli, responsable de graves intoxications alimentaires, les chercheurs précisent qu’ils manipulent une version synthétisée, sans danger.Le 10 janvier 2011 à 10:48 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more


For The 1 In 5 North Texas Kids In Poverty Its Harder


first_img Share BILL ZEEBLE / KERA NEWSJosh Masters listens to Children’s Health licensed counselor Angeleena May using the hospital’s telehealth connection. Children’s Health now has more than 100 telehealth school partners.One in five North Texas children lives in poverty, and more than a quarter million are hungry as their parents struggle to feed them.Those are just a few statistics from a recent 97-page report issued by Children’s Health, the Dallas-based children’s hospital network. The study offers possible solutions, too.The Beyond ABC report only looks at the well-being of children in parts of North Texas, specifically six counties: Dallas, Collin, Denton, Cooke, Grayson and Fannin. It has come out every two years since the late 1990s.How health affects educationThe rate of uninsured kids in Dallas County, as well as Cooke, Fannin and Grayson counties is double the national average. The report says more than 500,000 Texas children lack health insurance, and nearly half of the kids in Dallas County kids are enrolled in Medicaid. The study finds children living in poverty are seven times more likely to be in poor or fair health.Health has a direct impact on education. Yet, low-income parents may be hesitant to get medical care for their kids for several reasons, including cost. Children’s Health points to its telemedicine program as a way to help.For example, if a child’s sick in school, he or she usually goes to the nurse. Then, the parent typically gets called, has to leave work, possibly lose pay, then get to a doctor’s office by car, bus or a friend. Dr. Stormee Williams, who oversees the telehealth program with more than 100 school partners, says telemedicine offers another option.“We can call in, have a live video interaction,” Williams said. “The nurse has an electronic stethoscope, otoscope, dermscope, so that, live, we can diagnose ear infections, look at the throat, listen to lungs in a child with asthma, and actually make a diagnosis and treat if necessary and send prescriptions, electronically.”  Dallas’ problem with povertyThe report also finds one in five North Texas kids lives in poverty and offers another way to look at that. Nearly 500,000 children in North Texas qualify for free or reduced-price school meals. Food insecurity in all of the six counties in the study exceeds the national average.In the Dallas school district, 90 percent of the students are considered low-income.Mike Koprowski used to be with Dallas ISD, and while he’s concerned about the poverty rates in Dallas, he’s even more concerned about neighborhood segregation in Dallas. He calls Dallas one of the most segregated cities by race and income in the country.“When you have areas of concentrated poverty, that creates a lot of challenges in the school. So any educator will tell you a kid living in poverty brings challenges into the classroom,” he said. “But when an entire school building is concentrated with low-income kids, the challenges get more difficult.” Koprowski calls that segregation a disaster for Dallas.Proposed solutionsThe report recommends supporting increased development of mixed-income neighborhoods and more widespread acceptance of housing assistance vouchers.Some say lawmakers should get involved.Matt Moore, Children’s Health vice president for government relations, says elected leaders often say it’s important to improve the state of children, but they don’t necessarily take action.“So, I think that the interest is there; we see it from both sides of the aisle,” Moore says. “We see it among the deepest of red tea party members; we see it among the most blue of liberal members. The interest is there, but it just seems that, right now, the moment is aligned against us.”That leaves nonprofits, like the North Texas Food Bank, education groups and health care providers, playing a big role. The goal is to help kids get the basics for success when obstacles block the way. Dr. Williams says it all matters because she’s looking to the future. “We know that healthy kids learn better. And children who’ve learned well end up being healthier adults,” Dr. Williams says.The report also suggests that schools prioritize support for student health and healthy behaviors by providing more nutritious meals and more physical activity and focusing on students’ behavioral and emotional health.Read the full report 2017 Beyond ABC Report by KERANews on Scribdlast_img read more

South of Memories imagines the lives of Nicaraguan refugees


first_imgCourtesy Alonso Muñez SolísIn war, people take drastic measures. Some adopt a cause and fight. Others cling to their peaceful lives and hope for the best. And some, seeing that the situation is only getting worse, flee their country in search of a better life.In the first chapter of “Al Sur de los Recuerdos” (“South of Memories”), we see what happens to young Pascual Aristaga when he tries to fight. In the novel, Pascual is a humble shopkeeper and decent family man, yet when Nicaragua is torn apart by war, he decides to raise arms against the invisible enemy in the woods. But Pascual doesn’t last long; he’s clearly not meant to be a soldier. In the wake of his death, his wife María and daughter Ana have nothing to gain by staying. They journey south, to Costa Rica.Demographically speaking, Costa Rican writer Alonso Muñoz Solís is an unlikely author of “Recuerdos.” Nicaraguan immigrants are not a popular bunch in Costa Rica, yet Muñoz writes movingly about their escape from war and the challenges of their new life. Meanwhile, in telling most of the story from the perspective of young Ana, Muñoz sets himself the challenge of accurately voicing a character of another age and gender, a notable feat for any writer. Finally, Muñoz was 33 years old when the book was published last May, which means he was about nine years old when the Nicaraguan Revolution ended.Muñoz took on a difficult topic that basically predates his generation, and this alone is commendable. He has done his research, too – he clearly describes his locations and how the characters see them, even on the front lines of battles. When Ana and María trudge their way toward Costa Rica, Muñoz had to imagine encountering his own country for the first time:For hours they walked among gigantic trees adorned with different shades of green. Magnificent trees, with very high roots and lined vines and mosses of different textures. Perfectly circular and imposingly long trunks. Leaves of different sizes that fell dancing in the air. Palm trees in the jungle. Muddy earth the color of adobe on a day without rain; a carpet of fallen leaves. Mushrooms of all forms and colors. Ranks of busy ants. Flocks of parakeets, birds and more birds, everywhere.Muñoz can be eloquent, but most of his prose is crisp and clean, like a Central American Steinbeck. For folks learning Spanish or unaccustomed to reading Spanish literature, “Recuerdos” is an excellent find: The vocabulary is uncomplicated and the story is smoothly told, without excessive, self-indulgent metaphor or subplots. At 135 pages, the slim novel could pass for young adult fiction, and the violence is no more shocking than a “Hunger Games” scene – except that Muñoz’s fiction is based on real tragedy.I can only hope that Muñoz finds the broad readership he deserves. Small-press books don’t generally print a second edition, and Costa Rica is a tough market for novelists, especially a freshman author. It is striking to discover that Muñoz graduated from the University of Costa Rica with a degree in Electrical Engineering, then worked for the University for Peace. “Recuerdos” is an admirable first book. Here’s hoping he writes a second one soon.

UNITED AIRLINES RECOGNISED FOR ONGOING SUPPORT United Airlines, a wholly owned subsidiary of United Continental Holdings, Inc. has been bestowed the great honour of ‘Ambassador of the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute’ at its annual Christmas Cocktail party yesterday.  The award recognises United’s continued support of the Institute through its MileagePlus Charity Miles Program. Since the inception of the charity program in 1996, United Airlines’ MileagePlus members have donated 7,412,170 Mileage Points for use by Victor Chang Research Institute staff who regularly travel to the U.S. for research-related purposes.  The donation equates to over 92[1] return trips between Sydney and Los Angeles.  This has saved the Institute over $118,000[2] which can instead be diverted to critical research into heart disease and cardiovascular biology; cardiovascular research training; and facilitating the rapid application of research discoveries to patient care.Chris Petty, Sales Manager, United Airlines, Australia and New Zealand, accepted the award on behalf of the company: “I am extremely honored and humbled to accept this award on behalf of United Airlines and our very loyal MileagePlus members.  Since the introduction of the program, it has been our focus to help improve the quality of life for our customers, employees and the communities in which we operate.  Cardiovascular disease claims a life every 11 minutes in Australia[3].  The incredible work of Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute is a vital step in ensuring this staggering statistic becomes history.  United Airlines remains truly committed to supporting their efforts both in Australia and the United States.” Chris Petty (second from left), Sales Manager, United Airlines, accepting the honour on behalf of United Airlines from ProfessorRobert M Graham, Executive Director, Victor Chang, The Hon.

Adventure enthusiasts can now opt for a road trip in the scenic


first_imgIn a move to boost tourist inflow to the state, Uttarakhand’s State Transport Authority (STA) has granted licences to five private players under ‘Rent a Motor Cycle Scheme’, which was launched by the Centre in 1997. The licences will allow the private players to rent bikes to travellers who wish to ride the vehicles on the hilly roads. Travellers can choose daily, weekly and even monthly rental plans.Additional Transport Commissioner, Sunita Singh, said, “Five applicants have been granted licences to run the business of renting motor cycles. The licences have been issued for Dehradun, Mussoorie, Rishikesh and Tehri. Along with boosting tourism, it will also increase the range of last-mile connectivity.”The permit will allow the rental service to offer two-wheelers, including high-end bikes such as Royal Enfield and Harley Davidson. The bikes available for rental will be commercially registered. It is not clear what the rental charges will be and whether they would vary depending on the service provider.According to Sandeep Saini, Assistant Regional Transport Officer (ARTO) Administration, Dehradun, under the scheme, two-wheelers will have a commercial registration but anyone with a private driving licence will be able to drive unlike in case of commercial vehicles for which a commercial driving licence is mandatory. Certain conditions have to be fulfilled by a permit holder before starting the business of renting of motor cycles for self-driven trips.last_img read more
