Regulator rejects BC governments promised hydro rate freeze

first_imgBut the commission rejected the government’s request on the grounds that other increases have done little to meet the revenue needs at the Crown-owned utility.The utilities commission decision also formally approved earlier increases of four percent in 2016 and 3.5 percent last year.Opposition Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson says it’s just another broken promise by an NDP government that stumbles into messes that cost all of us because it puts rhetoric ahead of planning.(THE CANADIAN PRESS) VICTORIA, B.C.  – Hydro rates in British Columbia will increase three percent in April after the province’s independent energy regulator overruled a government promise to freeze rates for one year.Energy Minister Michelle Mungall says she’s disappointed with the B.C. Utilities Commission’s decision, but it has prompted the government to immediately start planning to help those who are struggling to pay their power bills.The NDP government campaigned last spring on promises to tackle rising hydro rates and last November Mungall announced plans to request that the utilities commission freeze the scheduled April increase.last_img read more

Gaza crossing partially opened today permitting restricted delivery of UN aid

The UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) delivered six truckloads of Jordanian-donated aid into Gaza, but the agency noted that an additional 10 trucks of oil and tinned meat were not allowed entrance into the territory.UNRWA has stressed that it needs to send 15 trucks a day into Gaza just to maintain its basic operations, but it has only managed to deliver 37 trucks of emergency relief supplies over the last month, UN spokesperson Michele Montas told reporters in New York.Meanwhile, UNRWA Commissioner General Karen AbuZayd opened a year-long series of events today in Jerusalem to mark the agency’s 60th anniversary on 8 December.“Closures in the West Bank and the blockade of Gaza add to the terrifying sense of being trapped, physically, intellectually and emotionally, depriving children of that simplest of rights, the right to be a child,” said Ms. AbuZayd.Ms. AbuZayd said that the anniversary was a time for sober reflection on why a “temporary agency” still exists and a time to ponder the realities of the refugees after 60 years of exile, dispossession and statelessness.“While the 60th anniversary of UNRWA is nothing to celebrate, it is an occasion to pay tribute to the people, the vast majority of them refugees, who have been part of this unique agency over six decades and to those who have benefited and made such good use of its services,” she added.Following the 1948 Arab-Israeli conflict, UNRWA was established by the General Assembly to carry out direct relief and works programmes for Palestine refugees. 4 December 2008Some crossings into Gaza, including fuel pipelines, were opened today, allowing a limited amount of United Nations humanitarian supplies to reach the area’s 1.5 million inhabitants. read more

Ban welcomes disarmament conferences adoption of work programme

29 May 2009Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon welcomed today”s adoption by the Conference on Disarmament – the world”s sole multilateral forum for disarmament negotiations – of a Programme of Work for its 2009 session. The move taken by the Conference in Geneva ends a 12-year stalemate, which will allow the body to negotiate and substantively discuss strategic disarmament and non-proliferation, according to a statement issued by Mr. Ban”s spokesperson.“The Secretary-General is heartened that the members and in particular the President, Ambassador Idriss Jazaïry, have overcome an impasse which had for far too long prevented the Conference on Disarmament from fulfilling its mandate,” it added.In his address to the Conference”s 65 members last week, Mr. Ban emphasized its essential role as the “main pillar of disarmament and non-proliferation.”He voiced hope that today”s decision “will generate another important impetus to advancing disarmament and non-proliferation in general and to achieving success” at next year”s review conference of the UN-backed Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), which forms the foundation of the world”s nuclear non-proliferation regime.Following the adoption by consensus of a work programme, Mr. Jazaïry said that the Conference”s action has reinforced multilateralism and showed how to overcome “artificial barriers” separating the North and South. read more

UNbacked antimeasles campaign to reach millions of children in China

“China is a priority country in the global fight against measles and we commend the Government for its leadership in this life-saving work,” said Michael O’Leary, the World Health Organization (WHO) Representative in China.The vaccination campaign will kick off on 11 September and last until 20 September, WHO and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) said in a joint statement.In 2009, more than 52,000 people in China were reported to have contracted measles, accounting for about 86 per cent of the measles cases in WHO’s Western Pacific region.Measles is a highly contagious viral disease that affects both children and young adults. While most individuals recover from measles infection, some may suffer serious complications such as blindness, encephalitis, severe diarrhoea, pneumonia and ear infections.Measles is a leading cause of avoidable death and disability among children in developing countries. Globally, an estimated 164,000 people died from measles in 2008 – mostly children under the age of five. Experience from other countries shows that well-conducted campaigns can ensure that every child, especially those not reached through the routine immunization programme, receives a measles vaccine.“However, some people living in remote areas and large urban cities, as well as the large migrant population, may have less access to vaccines and health care than other segments of the population, and thus not be protected against measles. In addition, a small percentage of children who have previously been vaccinated against measles may not have developed immunity to the disease,” Mr. O’Leary said.Next week’s mass vaccination aims to address those gaps.“This campaign is important for every family in China – in remote villages, in urban areas and in migrant communities,” said Yin Yin Nwe, UNICEF Representative for China.“We encourage all parents to take their children to the closest vaccination clinic during the campaign period. This huge nationwide effort will produce significant benefits for child survival,” she added.The measles vaccine is a safe and highly effective, but some children may get fever or mild reactions in the days following vaccination. This means that the vaccine is working to protect the child. A child who has previously received measles vaccination can still be given an additional dose of measles vaccine. 1 September 2010Nearly 100 million children across China will this month be vaccinated against measles in one of the world’s largest such public health exercise in an effort to bring the vast country closer to eliminating the contagious disease by 2012, two United Nations agencies said today. read more

Bell Media cancels two shows lays off employees citing financial pressure

TORONTO — Bell Media says it eliminated a number of jobs in Toronto after deciding not to renew two programs.Spokesman Scott Henderson says in an email the company cancelled Daily Planet and Innerspace.A company memo obtained by the Canadian Press says 17 positions, including taped segment producers and a director, were “declared surplus.”The memo says the company will meet with the employees in those positions to determine if any will choose to displace less senior employees in other jobs they are qualified to fill.Henderson says the changes come in the face of significant financial pressures as the broadcasting industry grapples with more international competition, evolving viewing options and an uncertain regulatory framework.The company’s most recent annual information form says Bell Media employed 6,485 people as of Dec. 31, 2017 — down from 6,701 the previous year. read more

Help us drive UK car making forward

‘It is important that we protect choice in the market place and diversity of UK car manufacturing,’ said SMMT chief executive Paul Everitt. ‘We host seven volume car makers delivering 1.5 million new models each year, as well as the largest number of niche and low volume producers in Europe. It is essential that new CO2 rules are built on a thorough understanding of our industry and we welcome the opportunity to brief our colleagues in the European Parliament.’ Lead timesThe industry supports a 2015 implementation date for new tailpipe targets. This will allow manufacturers to plan and develop new models to meet the targets. The European Commission has proposed a 2012 start date which SMMT argues is unrealistic because it does not reflect seven-year product life-cycles. PenaltiesProposed fines are disproportionate and inconsistent with the market price of carbon. Penalties could be as much as 14 times more onerous than under schemes like ETS – the European emission trading scheme. In addition, the Commission’s own assessment suggests production costs could increase by six per cent per car. Market DiversityThe market in the UK is vibrant and diverse and the regulation must not distort this. Choice and product diversity must be watchwords for those shaping the regulation.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) Key issues for car makers include: At a Brussels briefing last night, UK MEPs were encouraged to work with industry to help deliver a workable CO2 tailpipe regulation for new cars. SMMT made it clear that car makers are not opposed to a robust new regulation, however, tailpipe targets must be delivered with appropriate lead times and any penalties must be consistent with the price of carbon. InnovationThe automotive sector is Europe‘s largest investor in R&D at €20bn per annum. SMMT believes there should be eco-credits for manufacturers whose products exceed regulatory targets. This will be an incentive for manufacturers to go beyond the targets rather than just working towards them. read more

Lewandowski welcomes competition at Bayern Munich

first_imgRobert Lewandowski believes the strong competition for starting spots at Bayern Munich is good and he’s pleased with the attitude of his teammates.The Bavarians’ hopes of a seventh successive Bundesliga crown are under serious threat this season from Borussia Dortmund after a drop in form earlier this season.Due to this, head coach Niko Kovac has made some tough decisions in his starting line-up with regulars like Jerome Boateng and James Rodriguez finding game time harder to come by.In fact, Boateng has only made 11 league starts and hasn’t even featured yet for Bayern in 2019 with James faring little better.The Colombia international has only started five of his nine Bundesliga appearances at the Allianz Arena this season amid struggles with ankle and knee problems.But, with his two-year loan deal from Real Madrid set to end this summer, James has been urged by Kovac to prove his worth to Bayern if they are to take up their €42m option.Meanwhile, Renato Sanches recently hinted that he may have to reconsider his future at Bayern should starting opportunities continue to evade him.Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.Speaking on the matter, however, star striker Lewandowski believes it’s a good thing if his teammates are frustrated about not playing and is pleased with their strong work ethic in training.“If none of our players are dissatisfied when they aren’t playing, we would have a bigger problem,” Lewandowski told Sport1.“Everyone has the ambition to play and to win.”“Nevertheless, I see that all players are doing really well in training and giving all they’ve got.“That’s the most important thing for me and for the team. When they’re given the chance, they’re ready to give everything.”Lewandowski, who has started in all but one of Bayern’s 19 Bundesliga games this season, has managed an impressive 12 goals and six assists.last_img read more

Obama Merkel display unity against Russia

first_imgWASHINGTON — Projecting unity on Ukraine, President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel threatened tougher new sanctions against Russia on Friday if Moscow doesn’t quickly change its disruptive behavior.“We will not have a choice but to move forward with additional more-severe sanctions” if Russia disrupts a presidential election in Ukraine scheduled for May 25, Obama said at a news conference with Merkel outside the White House. “Further sanctions will be unavoidable,” Merkel agreed.Both leaders made it clear that the next step would be to order sanctions on separate parts of the Russian economy or military — on energy or arms for example — but neither leader specified precisely what was being considered.Putin “needs to be dissuaded from his current course,” Obama said.The two leaders met as the European Union announced it would hold talks with Ukraine and Russia later this month on the price of natural gas, an attempt to avoid any disruption in supplies. Moscow recently hiked the price of gas shipped to Ukraine to $485 per thousand cubic meters from $268.50, and threatened to limit deliveries if Kiev does not meet the new price and repay a debt of $3.5 billion.More forebodingly, pro-Russia forces shot down two Ukrainian helicopters Friday and Ukraine reported many rebels dead and wounded as the interim government in Kiev launched its first major offensive against an insurgency that has seized government buildings across the east.last_img read more

MI vs RR Dream 11 and MPL Fantasy tips live stream preview

first_imgFor Rajasthan Royals, everything falls into place, but then somehow they do not cross the finishing line. The strike-rate of their batsmen will be under the scanner and their death bowling and reaction to crunch moments will also be closely monitored. They will be up against Mumbai Indians, a side which has won the critical moments, a side which is riding a wave of momentum and hence, enter the match as overwhelming favourites.The match will be played at the Wankhede Stadium, which has served Mumbai well this season, but such is the nature of the pitch, that even Rajasthan Royals might fancy their chances on the day.Predicted XI of both sides:Mumbai Indians Predicted XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Alzarri Joseph, Jasprit Bumrah, Jason BehrendoffRajasthan Royals Predicted XI: Ajinkya Rahane (c), Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Steve Smith, Ben Stokes, Rahul Tripathi, Riyan Parag, Shreyas Gopal, Jofra Archer, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev UnadkatFantasy tips and suggestions: Rohit SharmaIANSWicket-keeper: Quinton de Kock has looked in patches but finds ways of getting out. Hence, he should not be in the playing XI. Instead, Sanju Samson, who took the gloves in the previous match should make it as his record against Mumbai Indians is terrific and will enjoy the brilliant batting surface in Mumbai.Batsmen: Jos Buttler has tapered off this week, but he faces his former side at Wankhede and would want to make a big statement before he jets off to England for World Cup preparations. Also, Suryakumar Yadav and Rohit Sharma should make it into the playing XI along with Steve Smith.There are concerns over the strike rate of Steve Smith, but then, on the Wankhede surface and outfield, the form of Smith should be instrumental for Rajasthan.All-rounders: Hardik Pandya has become a brilliant finisher for Mumbai Indians, but there are concerns with his bowling, which need to be resolved. For Rajasthan Royals, Ben Stokes was erratic in the final over in the match against Chennai Super Kings and conceded the match, but he should be in the side as he has the pedigree to strike big on any given day.  All-rounder Jofra ArcherIANSSpinners: There will be a toss-up between Shreyas Gopal and Rahul Chahar. While Chahar has been frugal, Gopal has been picking up wickets which should give him a go in the playing XI.  Seam bowlers: Jasprit Bumrah, Jason Behrendorff and Jofra Archer – the three seamers who could be quite good on the Wankhede surface should be included in the playing XI as all the three bowlers have the ability to run through sides both with the new and old ball.last_img read more

Japanese scientists create ice cream that doesnt melt

first_img Ice cream goes Southern, okra extracts may increase shelf-life Explore further A team of Japanese scientists has developed a way to make and sell a type of ice cream that does not melt, capitalizing on a discovery made accidentally by a chef. Most ice cream starts melting just moments after it is scooped from a container and placed into a bowl or on a cone. Because of this, people have taken to eating it quickly. But now that may change, as a team in Japan has found a way to maintain the shape of ice cream no matter how slowly it is eaten. Because the extract is completely natural, it did not require testing by health inspectors—instead, it was made available to local shop owners who gladly began selling the ice cream in prepressed shapes on sticks or forms to customers who were more than happy to try it. Local media picked up the story, and soon, the news spread around the world. Local newspapers have been running stories reporting on how the ice cream tastes (apparently still good) and how well it stands up to warm temperatures. Some customers would hold their ice cream for many minutes in direct sunlight to see if it will melt. Others took a harsher approach, subjecting samples to hair dryers or other artificially heated environments. By all accounts, the ice cream maintains its shape for several hours in warm weather, and still feels chilly in the mouth. Because the new ice cream is still so new, it is not clear if it will migrate to other countries. Currently, it is only for sale in Japan.

The chef tried to use the strawberries in other ways, and at one point, complained that they caused cream to solidify. Hearing of the complaint, a team at Kanazawa University took a closer look and discovered that a compound called polyphenol in the strawberries was responsible for solidifying the cream. The extract, they found, makes it difficult for water and oil to separate, which is what occurs in regular ice cream. They tried mixing it with ice cream and found it would prevent the ice cream from melting.last_img read more

News | Flat Panel Displays | June 18, 2019 Double Black Imaging Announces Expanded Display Line and Ergonomic Workstation Solutions Double Black Imaging (DBI) and their Image Systems Division are releasing their new clinical and diagnostic display… read more May 29, 2009 – Barco announced that its new diagnostic display system with high-bright LCD panel, Nio Color 3MP, is now shipping and will be on display at this year’s SIIM Annual Meeting, June 4 -7, 2009, in Charlotte, N.C. The new display recently also obtained 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration, making it available for commercial distribution in the U.S. The new version of the Nio Color 3MP builds upon the proven benefits of the previous model, but now features a high-bright LCD panel that provides a calibrated luminance of 400 cd/m² throughout its entire life time. Combined with outstanding color accuracy, it makes the display perfectly suited for applications that take advantage of color, including PET imaging, fMRI, perfusion, spectroscopy and CAD. Another innovation is the built-in system for uniformity correction. Thanks to this feature, luminance is spread evenly over the full screen surface, which enhances diagnostic precision and facilitates compliance with regional QA standards.Nio Color 3MP is supplied with Barco’s user-friendly MediCal QAWeb service for DICOM calibration, Quality Assurance (QA) and asset management. The free ‘Essential’ level of this service allows you to easily change QA policies (e.g. white luminance) and perform remote calibration. Upgrading to the ‘Premium’ service level provides many additional remote capabilities including full remote QA, extended notifications and reports. Just like all other Barco diagnostic displays, the Nio Color 3MP comes standard with a five-year warranty.For more information: www.barco.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Flat Panel Displays | November 28, 2018 LG Unveils New Diagnostic Monitor, Digital X-ray Detectors at RSNA 2018 LG Electronics is expanding its U.S. medical imaging portfolio with a new high-performance 21-inch diagnostic monitor… read more Feature | Flat Panel Displays | April 18, 2018 | Melinda Taschetta-Millane Flat Panel Display Market Outlook The global flat panel display market is predicted to reach $177.3 million by 2027, according to a new report titled “… read more last_img read more
