Tender Called for Queensland Parking Lot Work

first_imgThe parking lot and a lifeguard station at Queensland Beach will be restored to the condition they were before post-tropical storm Noel blew through the area in the fall. A tender was issued today, May 30, for work that includes removing debris and excess material deposited in the parking lot during the storm. The parking lot will also be gravelled with appropriate material and graded. In addition, excess material will be removed and damages to a lifeguard station will be repaired. Some of the rock and other material that is being removed will be placed along sections of guardrail that separates the parking lot from the road. This will further define the parking lot and will provide added separation from the highway. The work is the Department of Natural Resources’ responsibility in restoring the area to its pre-storm status. Parking lot and lifeguard station repairs are expected to be completed by June 20.

Economic Advisory Panel Recommends Tough Choices to Right Finances

first_img tighter management of spending review of programs tax measures a renewed commitment to enhance the economy. The report stresses that doing nothing is not an option, or more importantly, the path Nova Scotia is on is simply not sustainable. “I want to thank the panel members for their hard work over the past two months,” Premier Dexter said. “This in-depth report will be a key tool for the government in preparing for next year’s budget and developing a plan to put Nova Scotia back on a sustainable path.” Nova Scotians have shown they are interested in the future of their province by taking the time to write to the panel and attend focus sessions to share their views, which are reflected in the report. “I’d like to see Nova Scotians continue to be involved in the process,” the premier said. “I urge people to read the report to fully understand the scope of the problem and the challenges that lie ahead, and then let us know what they think. “We need everyone’s help to develop a plan to move forward. After all, this is the future of their province.” Monday, Nov. 16, Premier Dexter and Finance Minister Graham Steele will respond to the report and outline the next steps to address Nova Scotia’s financial challenge. To view the panel’s full report and recommendations, visit www.gov.ns.ca/tpb . The Economic Advisory Panel’s report, released today, Nov. 13, shows Nova Scotia is in serious financial trouble and will have to make some tough choices to restore the province to a solid, balanced fiscal standing. “This is truly a watershed moment for Nova Scotia,” Premier Darrell Dexter said. “It is clear from the panel’s advice that government and Nova Scotians have some very tough decisions ahead. If anyone thinks there is an easy way out, they are wrong.” The first phase of an independent financial review by Deloitte revealed in August that Nova Scotia is on a path to a $1.3-billion deficit. The premier’s first step was to appoint a four-member panel to define major policy challenges arising from the Deloitte report and identify options for government. In its report, the panel recommends that government wait to balance the budget until 2012-13. It also suggests government consider a combination of the following options to address Nova Scotia’s serious fiscal challenges: last_img read more

Nissan exchair Ghosns lawyer appeals court bail rejection

first_imgTOKYO — Nissan’s former chairman Carlos Ghosn’s lawyers have appealed the rejection by a Tokyo court earlier this week of their request for his release on bail.Thursday’s appeal comes two days after the Tokyo District Court turned down a bail request by Ghosn’s lawyer, prolonging his detention.Ghosn, 64, was arrested on Nov. 19 and has been charged with falsifying financial reports by allegedly underreporting his income, and with breach of trust.Ghosn has led Nissan for two decades. He asserted his innocence in court last week, his first public appearance since the arrest.Media reports said France’s economy minister has asked Nissan’s alliance partner Renault SA to choose a successor to Ghosn.

Palestine Honors King Mohammed VI for His Unwavering Support

Rabat – In the presence of Morocco’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Nasser Bourita, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas expressed his country’s gratitude over King Mohammed VI’s support for the Palestinian cause.In a meeting held at the headquarters of the Palestinian president with Bourita, Abbas underscored the support and solidarity of the King, the Moroccan people, and government to the Palestinian cause and population.  Abbas also declared Morocco’s support to the occupied city of Jerusalem, demonstrated through ongoing Moroccan leadership of Al-Quds Committee, headed by King Mohammed VI.The Palestinian official reaffirmed that Bourita’s visit confirms the deep bonds of fraternity between the Moroccan and Arab people, in addition to the two countries’ commitment to reinforce and further develop bilateral ties. During the meeting, Abbas underscored the latest developments in the Palestinian territories, including the deadlocked political process as a result of Donald Trump’s recent decision to move the US embassy to Jerusalem.The Palestinian leader also emphasized the importance of Arab support for the Palestinian stance, which remains committed to its people’s rights and rejects the policy of fait accompli, intimidation, and attempts to wipe out the cause.Abbas also recalled, in this regard, that the Palestinian question is the cause of all Arab nations and all free people around the world.During the meeting, Abbas stressed the need of holding an international peace conference intended to reach international mechanisms to resolve the Palestinian question in accordance with the resolutions of international legality, reported Maghreb Arab Press. This conference, according to Abbas, also aims at allowing the building of an independent Palestinian state with Al Quds East as its capital on the basis of the 1967 borders.The Moroccan official, who arrived in Palestine yesterday, stressed the importance of visiting Palestine to reaffirm Morocco’s firm position and its support and solidarity with the Palestinian leadership and people. Bourita noted that the Palestinian cause and Jerusalem are part of the constants in national foreign policy.Palestinian Deputy Prime Minister Ziad Abu Amro and Foreign Minister Riad Malki also attended the meeting.On Tuesday, Bourita toured Jerusalem, where he performed Salat Duhr (afternoon prayer) at Al-Aqsa mosque.The minister’s visit is part of a working visit to Palestine at the invitation of the Palestinian leader, Mahmoud Abbas. read more

Interpol help to be sought to probe Sri Lanka link to kidney

The MPUH authorities have clarified that the hospital had, on its own accord, requested the police to initiate a probe into another suspicious case in 2002. The recipient and donor of that case were acquitted by the Gujarat High Court in 2008. (Colombo Gazette) Investigators say that the documents have also confirmed that more than five persons travelled to Sri Lanka with help from “agents” to sell their kidneys. In what could escalate into an international racket, the Anand police are looking at seeking help from the Interpol to probe the Sri Lanka link. A senior investigating officer said, “More than five people from Pandoli have travelled to Sri Lanka for kidney extractions via Chennai, with help of agents. There are high chances that we will report this international link to the Centre and seek help from the Interpol after following the procedure of law. With help from Interpol, we will be able to probe this link.” Petlad Deputy Superintendent of Police, M R Gupta, is heading the SIT. Its two teams are currently in Delhi and Mumbai to locate the network of the racket. A 27-year-old cattle trader from Pindoli, Aamir Malik, had alleged that another villager, Rafiq Vora, had “cheated” him into selling off his kidney to a Delhi hospital in February this year.A team of officers, along with one of the three arrested accused, are currently probing the sequence of events and the other touts involved in the transaction that earned Aamir Rs 2.3 lakh for one kidney. Another team of Anand investigators is in Mumbai to probe the link between a kidney donor, Poonam Solanki, from Pandoli in a 2001 case — the transplant of which, occurred in the Muljibhai Patel Urological Hospital (MPUH) in Nadiad. Senior officials added that the SIT will also question the recipients of the two the kidney transplants conducted at the Nadiad hospital regarding their link to their donors. “It will help us get to the touts who lure the naive villages with money.” The Special Investigation Team (SIT), formed the District Superintendent of Police Ashok Kumar Yadav in Anand, India to probe into the kidney racket of Pandoli village, has fanned across to Delhi and Mumbai to trace the timeline of the alleged organ extractions as well as “big fish” involved in the racket.Investigators have hinted that it could seek help from the Interpol to probe the link into the kidney extractions carried out in Sri Lanka, after following the due procedure of law, the Indian Express reported. read more

Diamond timber experts chosen for UN panel to monitor Liberia sanctions

In a letter to the Council President for July, Ambassador Mihnea Ioan Motoc, Mr. Annan announced that Arthur Blundell of Canada, Senegal’s Atabou Bodian (chairman), Damien Callemand (France), Caspar Fithen (United Kingdom) and Tommy Garnett (Sierra Leone) will serve on the expert panel.These are the same five men who served on the panel in its previous guise from the end of last year until June, when its mandate officially ended. Mr. Blundell is an expert in the timber industry while Mr. Fithen specializes in the diamond field. Mr. Callamand has an investigative police background.Last month the expert panel was re-established and tasked by the Council – in resolution 1549 – with probing violations of the arms embargo, the travel ban on individuals who pose a threat to the region’s security, and the embargo on the export of rough diamonds and round logs and timber products from Liberia.The National Transitional Government of Liberia (NTGL) asked the Council to lift the sanctions on the export of diamonds and timber products, but the measures will continue until at least 21 December. The expert panel is mandated to operate until then as well.The Council imposed the sanctions in 2001 and widened them last year, after the long-running civil war in Liberia ended, in a bid to discourage instability in West Africa. read more

Hospitals among seven health centres attacked in Syrias northeast

Attacks ‘verified on four facilities, three pending’ In a statement, the UN health agency said that the facilities included four hospitals and two primary health care centres “that were functional at the time they were hit”. “Attacks on four facilities have been verified according to WHO reporting standards, and three are in process of verification,” WHO said in a statement. “One primary health care center had been previously evacuated in advance of military action. At least two injuries were reported, and two facilities were destroyed.”  The attacks come amid increased hostilities in and around Syria’s Idlib province – the last opposition stronghold in the country, which has been devastated by more than eight years of war.  According to WHO, some 13.7 million people need health assistance in Syria, including an estimated four million in the north-west.  The UN agency says that the attacks happened between 28 and 30 August, the latest violence against civilians since fighting escalated in north-west Syria in late April. In August alone, it reported that more than 130,000 people were displaced from Northern Hama and Idlib governorates.   More than 500 civilians killed since late April escalation  Condemning the military escalation in an update to the Security Council in New York last Thursday, the UN Emergency Relief Coordinator, Mark Lowcock, said that more than 500 civilians had been killed and “many hundreds more injured” in the last four months. Citing WHO and UNICEF, Mr. Lowcock noted that 43 health facilities, 87 educational facilities, 29 water stations, and seven markets had been impacted since April. In an appeal to the belligerents to respect international humanitarian law, the UN official insisted that a UN-led probe – announced by the Secretary-General – were set to investigate incidents in north-west Syria “which damaged or destroyed facilities which have either been deconflicted or received humanitarian support” from the UN. “I and other UN officials have repeatedly called on the parties and this Council to ensure respect for international humanitarian law,” Mr. Lowcock insisted.“People’s homes, hospitals, schools, water systems and markets must be protected. There can be no reason, rationale, excuse or justification for the destruction of civilian areas on the scale seen in Idlib today,” he said. read more

ABBs synchronous reluctance motor and drive package wins Automation Award

first_imgABB’s new, highly energy-efficient synchronous reluctance motor and drive package has won the 2011 Automation Award. ABB says “the package represents a breakthrough that combines best-in-class energy efficiency and customer value. The award is the most important in the automation sector in Germany, presented every year at the SPS/IPC/DRIVES trade show in Nuremberg, Germany.” The main feature of the new motor is the innovative design of its rotor, which has no windings, unlike traditional synchronous designs. The rotor thus suffers virtually no power losses and the rotor temperature remains lower than in conventional rotors. ABB has succeeded in using this technology to achieve better power density and higher energy efficiency. The package includes a matched motor and drive with dedicated software. Optimised for variable speed operation it offers smooth, efficient process control, and optimal use of energy.ABB exhibited the revolutionary synchronous reluctance motor and drive technology for the first time at the 2011 Hanover trade show where it aroused great interest.“With this package you get the performance of permanent magnet motors without the use of magnets,” said Steve Ruddell, Head of Global Marketing at ABB’s Motors and Generators business unit. “The extraordinarily high energy efficiency and power density of these packages can be attributed to the innovative rotor design and the optimised drive control.” The package will be made available in two variants:Package 1: Super premium efficiency class IE4 – This package, consisting of a super premium efficiency synchronous motor and matched frequency converter, is designed for maximum efficiency.Package 2: High power density and compact size – This package, a high-performance synchronous motor and matched frequency converter, is designed for maximum performance.last_img read more

Ardenne High shows faith in physically challenged student

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKingston, Jamaica, December 25, 2016 – On realizing that physically disabled student at Ardenne High School in Kingston, Faith Grant, would be unable to attend a class held only on one of the institution’s upper floors, the school’s administration promptly moved to solve the challenge.Electronic Document Preparation and Management (EDPM), a Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) subject designed to equip students with clerical and administrative skills, was one of the eight subjects Faith selected when she started fourth form.  But being the school’s sole wheelchair mobile student placed her at a disadvantage as she was unable to attend classes in the designated rooms.However, innovative thinking by the staff, headed by Principal, Nadine Molloy, has resulted in Faith now being able to participate with the other students via the video-conferencing technology platform, Skype, which she accesses from the school’s library.  “A member of the team suggested that we do it by Skype; and we explored it and now we are happy that we did,” Ms. Molloy said.Recounting her decision to accept Faith as a student at Ardenne, Ms. Molloy says while acknowledging the anticipated challenges in doing so, the school was, nonetheless, willing to make the necessary adjustments to accommodate her.  “Some persons wondered if we were doing the right thing. But I am always up for a challenge and I indicated to the staff that I was going to try, which meant we were all going to try,” she states.The Principal indicates that she researched cerebral palsy and had the staff consult with trained personnel on how best to relate to and teach students with the condition.  Consequent on this, Ms. Molloy says Faith’s presence at the school has helped students and staff to be more embracing of and sensitive to persons with disabilities.   “It teaches acceptance and it shows that some things that we are afraid of, we don’t need to be. It also shows that it is important for us to make the sacrifice and go the extra mile to ensure that each person, no matter their capacity, can self-actualize,” she adds.The Principal is confident that Faith will evolve into a productive member of society because she has been given the opportunity to pursue her education.  When Faith was diagnosed with cerebral palsy as a young child, her mother, Susan Henry, purposed to provide her with as fulfilling a life as is possible.Ms. Henry says she acknowledged that this would mean doing everything possible to provide her with the best educational opportunities.  She says it was on the advice of a therapist that she decided to have Faith enrolled in the mainstream school system, instead of a special needs institution.Ms. Henry said that she is happy with the decision taken and is very grateful for and appreciative of Ardenne’s kind gesture in going the extra mile over the years to accommodate Faith.  She says the teachers and students have been particularly helpful, adding that the administration has endeavored to accommodate classes on the ground floor and install ramps for Faith’s benefit.“Schools should really give physically disabled children a chance, as long as they are able to function…on par with other children. We need to accept that persons with disabilities are humans (too) and they should not be discriminated against,” Ms. Henry contends.  She adds that, in so doing, “it also teaches the younger generation values of kindness and of being helpful, and sensitises them to the needs of the disabled community.”Cerebral palsy is a disorder that affects muscle tone, movement, and motor skills.   As the condition affects coordination, functions such as standing, breathing, bladder control, eating and talking can be affected.

8yearold battling leukemia named Hollywood Police Chief for the Day

first_imgHOLLYWOOD, FLA. (WSVN) – A 8-year-old South Florida boy who is in remission from leukemia became the “Chief for the Day” of the Hollywood Police Department, Tuesday, thanks to a lieutenant who was given the same diagnosis.Third-grader Tristan Balea was diagnosed with leukemia two years ago. “The cancer is very hard,” explained little Tristan. “Tough on you.”He was treated at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital and is currently in remission.Soon after, Hollywood Police Lt. John Marino, a fellow cancer survivor, met Tristan at the hospital, where they both spoke at a luncheon.Thanks to the lieutenant, Tristan spent the day at the Hollywood Police Department headquarters, where he experienced a meeting, had lunch with Chief Tomas Sanchez, got a SWAT Demo, and even got to go on a boat ride with the Marine Unit.“I really like the SWAT team,” said Tristan. “I got to play with the sirens.”Marino brought the 8-year-old around for a building tour from 1:15 to 1:45 p.m. “You can beat it and you can do whatever you want after that,” Marino told Tristan.Now, Tristan’s brave battle against cancer has inspired him to help people himself, and his mother couldn’t be more hopeful. “I want him to be silly and be himself, but you know, I guess dream big,” said his mother, Nicoleta Balea.“I want to be an officer to help people,” said Tristan.“Everyone was calling him chief,” said his mother, full of pride. “He was telling me in secret, ‘I know what I want to do with the rest of my life.’”Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Astronomers investigate a recently reactivated radio magnetar

Spin frequency evolution and pulse profile variations of the recently re-activated radio magnetar XTE J1810-197. arXiv:1903.02660 [astro-ph.HE]. arxiv.org/abs/1903.02660 Magnetars are neutron stars with extremely strong magnetic fields, more than quadrillion times stronger than magnetic field of our planet. Decay of magnetic fields in magnetars powers the emission of high-energy electromagnetic radiation, for instance, in the form of X-rays or radio waves.To date, only 23 magnetars have been identified and XTE J1810–197, with a spin period of around 5.54 seconds and magnetic field strength at a level of 2 trillion G, was detected as the first of only four known such objects to emit radio pulsations. Radio emission from XTE J1810–197 was discovered in 2004, one year after an X-ray outburst from this source was observed. The star subsequently exhibited highly variable pulsed radio emission until late 2008, when it entered a radio-quiet state.Anticipating radio reactivation of XTE J1810–197, a group of astronomers led by Lina Levin of Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics at the University of Manchester, UK, began observing this magnetar in 2009 with the Lovell telescope at Jodrell Bank Observatory (JBO). On December 8, 2018, the scientists detected a bright pulsed radio signal at 1.52 GHz from this source, which marked the end of a nearly decade of its radio-quietness.”After spending almost a decade in a radio-quiet state, the Anomalous X-ray Pulsar XTE J1810–197 turned back on in early December 2018. We have observed this radio magnetar at 1.5 GHz with ∼daily cadence since the first detection of radio reactivation on December 8, 2018,” the astronomers wrote in the paper.According to the study, the pulse profile of XTE J1810–197 has changed significantly since detection. However, the profile changes observed during the first two months since the reactivation were less extreme when compared to what was observed the last time when this source was active.”The pulse variations seen so far from the source have been significantly less dramatic, on timescales from hours to months, than seen in 2006,” the paper reads.The researchers report that the magnitude of the spin frequency derivative of XTE J1810–197 has increased by a factor of 2.6 over the 48-day data set, with the most rapid increase occurring during the first 15 days.Moreover, the astronomers identified 50-millisecond oscillations seen in the pulse profile of the magnetar for about 10 days after it was re-detected. These oscillations have a characteristic frequency of 20 Hz and are seen at different frequencies and different telescopes at the same time. The authors of the paper assume that such oscillations could be related to surface waves triggered in the neutron star crust with a wide spectrum of frequencies.In concluding remarks, the researchers propose further monitoring of XTE J1810–197 in order to find out whether or not the pulse profile of the magnetar will experience more variations over time.last_img read more
