first_imgOTTAWA – The federal government isn’t properly managing the risks that farmed salmon pose to their wild counterparts, nor is it doing enough to ensure Canada is meeting its international commitments on biodiversity and sustainable development, Canada’s environmental watchdog says.In a series of new audits released Tuesday, environment commissioner Julie Gelfand takes a closer look at Canada’s management of the $1-billion salmon farming industry, which she warns is lacking when it comes to assessing the risk that diseases among farmed fish pose to wild salmon.The department has no requirement to monitor the health of wild salmon or the status of the ocean floor beneath penned salmon farms, said Gelfand, and the department is also providing better funding for research related to fish farms than it is for research to help monitor their impact.“The department is at risk of being seen to promote aquaculture over the protection of wild salmon,” Gelfand said after the reports were tabled in Parliament.The research gaps are extensive enough that there’s no way to determine the impact of fish farms on wild fish, she said. Those gaps include a lack of knowledge about the risk of disease, as well as the impact of the drugs used to treat those diseases. Canada also lacks an impact threshold to determine when to shut down or limit fish farming, she added.Canada also lacks standards for the nets used to contain farmed salmon in the ocean — a particular problem in the Atlantic, where heavy storms often batter salmon farms and destroy nets.In 2015, 40,000 salmon escaped from farms in Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Better standards are in place in British Columbia, where fewer escapes have occurred, the report says.In response to Gelfand’s report, Fisheries Minister Dominic LeBlanc said the government is “committed to ensuring all of her recommendations are acted upon and acted upon quickly.”The government is “wide open” to discussing with the provinces a change in management structure, he added — one that would make clear that the federal government’s primary responsibility is to ensure “there’s no harmful interaction” between salmon farms and wild fish populations.Gelfand’s spring reports also look at Canada’s commitment to the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the UN Convention on Biological Diversity, both of which, she warns, could become the latest international environment agreements Canada signs but does little to actually implement.She cited a lack of government leadership to address the targets in those agreements, saying there is no way to properly assess how effectively government policies can contribute to meeting those goals.The agenda for sustainable development is an international agreement for countries to work towards sustainable environmental, economic and social development, including gender equality, eliminating poverty, climate action and industrial innovation.Canada committed to the 2030 agenda in 2015 and recommitted to it last year, but the audit says the government hasn’t yet put in place the fundamental requirements to do more than pay it lip service.“The federal government committed to implementing the 2030 agenda three years ago, but again, it is not ready to respect its international commitment,” Gelfand said. “When will it be ready?”The audit report looked at the period between September 2015 and November 2017. The federal budget tabled in February promised nearly $50 million between now and 2030 to create a specific government unit to oversee the agenda, as well as to fund monitoring and reporting by Statistics Canada, Gelfand acknowledged.The statistics agency also expects this spring to have a data portal ready to report on the Canadian indicators around the UN 2030 agenda. That could address one of Gelfand’s concerns that there are too many departments assigned as co-leads on the agenda, leaving no one to take full ownership of or leadership on the file.“In my opinion, it is difficult to move forward with 10 hands on the wheel,” she says.Gelfand’s third audit this spring looked at another unmet Canadian UN environment commitment, this one the UN Convention on Biological Diversity — a legally binding treaty acknowledging that a global decline in biodiversity is one of the “most serious issues facing humanity.”Canada has had a biodiversity strategy under the convention since 1995; in 2002, signatories committed to reducing the rate of biodiversity loss by 2010. New targets were set for 2020 after that original deadline went wanting.Environment Minister Catherine McKenna said the government remains committed to meeting its target of conserving 10 per cent of coastal and marine areas and 17 per cent of terrestrial areas and inland water by 2020.“After 10 years of inaction by the previous government, we’re all in,” she said, adding that the Liberal government made “a historic investment in biodiversities” in the last budget.However, Gelfand found Environment Canada isn’t taking the necessary steps to hit the 2020 targets, focusing its efforts on international meetings and creating national committees rather than analyzing whether its actions will do anything to help. There is also no comprehensive monitoring or reporting on whether there is any progress to meeting the 2020 targets.last_img read more

Rabat – The customs of the Moroccan appointment ceremony for any new government’s members became familiar, traditionally stirring controversy about the same old faces who seem only to move from one seat to another and raising questions regarding who the new faces are.Saad Eddine Othmani was officially named the new Head of Government’s cabinet by King Mohammed VI, on Wednesday in Rabat.The ceremony was marked with only 13 new faces out of a total of 39 ministers consisting of members who are already affiliated with the six parties that will lead the government over the next five years and others who are technocrats. TechnocratsThe Ministry of Interior, which is better known in Morocco as the “Mother of Ministries,” allocated its ministerial portfolio toAbdelouafi LaftitAbdelouafi Laftit, who has served several positions over the past years.Known as the opponent of the leading party of the coalition government, the Justice and Development Party (PJD), Laftit, was governor of Fahs-Anjra, located in the north of Morocco.Three years later, in 2016, he became governor of Nador Province. He served in this position until he was appointed as President and General Manager of the Development Company for the Conversion of Tangier’s Port city.In 2014, Laftit started stealing the limelight after King Mohammed VI appointed him as Governor of the country’s capital prefecture and Wali of the region Rabat-Salé-Zemmour.During his tenure, Laftit rose to fame following his involvement among other high-ranking officials in the cheap sale of state-owned land in the upscale district of Zaer Road in Rabat. It sold for MAD 350 per square meter, a price far below the MAD 4,000 per square meter average in the area estimated by the Administration of Tax and Revenue.Within the same department, Laftit will be assisted by Noureddine Boutayeb, who was named Delegate to Laftit.Noureddine BoutayebSucceeding Cherki Draiss, the former Delegate to Minister of Interior, is Mohammed Hassad, who was appointed as Minister of National Education, Vocational Training and Higher Education and Scientific Research.Khalid SamadiHassad will be assisted by Khalid Samadi, who was named Secretary of State for the ministry, in charge of Higher Education and Scientific Research. One of the remarkable young faces marking the new government is Othman El Ferdaous, who was appointed Secretary of State to the Minister of Industry, Investment, Trade and Digital Economy, in charge of Investment.

The UK automotive industry is in excellent economic, environmental and social shape according to a new report published today by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT). Key indicators in the trade body’s 15th annual Automotive Sustainability Report – which reveals figures from 2013 – show significant improvements that tally with recent growth, investment and efforts to improve environmental performance by the UK’s major vehicle and component manufacturers.In 2013 alone, an estimated 44,000 new jobs were created across the automotive sector, of which 14,000 were in manufacturing. This growth was matched in domestic automotive manufacturing turnover which grew 10.3% to top £64 billion, fuelled by extensive investment in research and development – a key strength of the UK – which in itself grew 9.7% since 2012 to £1.9 billion a year.“The UK automotive industry contributes hugely to the country’s economic health by building millions of vehicles, engines and components here every year and employing hundreds of thousands of people,” said Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive. “The progress made by the industry over the past year alone is hugely important. Growing our skills base and encouraging more automotive suppliers to base their businesses in the UK is now essential for us to maintain this positive momentum.”Industry analysts suggest that by 2017 the UK could be building more than two million cars a year, breaking the all-time record that has stood for more than 40 years. With continued investment from the world’s biggest automotive brands, the future looks bright for the sector – but the rate of growth and demand for specialist skills has put manufacturers under enormous pressure to recruit and up-skill staff.Other challenges come with the forecast growth. Supplier capacity can be called into question, so re-shoring more component providers is a vital aspect highlighted in the latest report.In terms of environmental performance, the Sustainability Report highlights major reductions in CO2 output and waste sent to landfill by manufacturing sites. Carmakers in the UK have cut landfill volumes so dramatically in recent years that, per vehicle, just 3.5kg ends up as landfill waste – a massive 91.3% reduction on 15 years ago when reporting began.UK automotive was the first industry to report as a sector on sustainability issues in 1999.

first_imgAEL Mining Services specifically designed the extrusion processes at its Initiating Systems Automated Plant (ISAP) to manufacture high quality polymeric shock tubes used in mines around the world in the initiating system assemblies for shock propagation. Suretube is expected to conform to AEL’s quality attributes and functional performance in the mines.According to Dr Samir Mukhopadhyay, a Senior Consulting Scientist at AEL’s R&D department, there are three very similar extrusion lines that are operational at ISAP currently and at the current production efficiency, these lines have the capacity to produce well over 25 million m of shock tube (commercially known as Suretube) length per month.ISAP comprises three manufacturing units, namely shocktubing, detonator and assembly plants. These plants were developed with the aim of providing safer processes, improved product performance and high volume benefits. By December 2010 over 10-million ISAP detonators were produced per month and over 2.5-million auto assembled units were produced per month.“In line with AEL’s promise to the industry, Suretube is expected to conform to AEL’s quality attributes and functional performance in the mines. We ensure that all extrusion processes at ISAP go through a stringent sequence of process optimisation, qualification and validation to functional performance to establish scientific evidence that these processes are capable of consistently delivering high quality products. The process of line qualification and validation to the performance also provides a mechanism of achieving less waste and reduced downtime in the manufacturing of Suretube,” he explains.Mukhopadhyay notes that to ensure quality results, the process of line qualification and validation has to go through a number of steps involving a multidisciplinary team working over a period of seven to eight months on a single extrusion line.“ISAP process qualification and validation work has already been completed on two extrusion lines and both lines are currently running with excellent process stability in manufacturing high quality and highly reproducible shock tubes. The process qualification work on the third extrusion line has just started and it is expected that the qualified line would be handed over to the operation team before the end of the year,” he comments.During the process qualification work, the products are subjected to an in-depth evaluation using most of the routine and some specially assigned qualification tests that are described in the Suretube specification.The products from a running line are sampled randomly and evaluated by determining characteristics, such as outside and inside tube diameters, distribution of core load, velocity of detonation, tube burst, breaking strength, elongation and linear shrinkage.The products are expected to conform to all the requirements within the tightest of margins prescribed in the specifications. During the qualification run and performance validation of two extrusion lines all mechanical and thermal properties were found well within the specifications with tighter variations within and between the reels. Variation of core loading (an important function of shock wave propagation) within the tubes was successfully minimised from ±7 mg/m to ±3 mg/m during the qualification run of the two extrusion lines.Following the process qualification run over an extended period of time, the process is expected to be validated (independently) in establishing satisfactory functional performance of the product. Process validation is also intended to assist the operators in understanding quality management system requirements. Validation of ISAP processes ensures that when a process is operated within specified limits, it should consistently produce shock tube complying with pre-determined requirements. According to Mukhopadhyay, this is extremely important especially in the explosive industry as the pre-determined requirements of shock tube can only be assured alternatively by a major destructive testing and that can be expensive. The principles of validation process:Quality, safety and efficacy are designed and built into productQuality should not be adequately assured merely by in-process and finished-product inspection or testingEach step of manufacturing process is controlled to assure that the finished product can meet all quality attributes including specifications.Once the process qualification and validation steps are successfully executed, the qualified process line is handed over to the operation team in taking over the responsibility of on-going manufacturing of shock tube.last_img read more

first_imgIn the island state of Papua New Guinea, Ok Tedi Mining Limited (OTML) runs the copper and gold mine Ok Tedi. OTML’s drive train infrastructure at the Ok Tedi mine is in excess of 30 years old. In order to ensure long term profitability, OTML is using Siemens technology to supply and install complete new variable speed drive trains for the two Semi-Autogenous Grinding mills SAG 1 and SAG 2.To ensure that the copper and gold mine Ok Tedi can continue to operate profitably, its operator Ok Tedi Mining Ltd (OTML) has decided to modernise the 30 years old mill drive train on its two Semi-Autogenous Grinding (SAG) mills and change the operational concept from fixed speed to variable speed. In the process, OTML has commissioned Siemens to supply and install new motors and couplings, variable speed drive converters and an online mill drive train condition monitoring system combined with remote access and a two year drive train analytics contract.On SAG 1, the two existing motors will be replaced with 12 pole, low speed induction motors operated at 20 hertz (Hz). Due to the low speed nature of the drive train, a torque limiting coupling is fitted to protect pinion and girth gear from eventual transient torques. As a result, the air-clutch that previously transferred the drive power to the mill can be removed, eliminating all air-clutch related outages and maintenance activities. For SAG 2, Siemens supplies two 8 pole, high speed induction motors to replace the existing slip-ring motors, eliminating all brush or slip-ring related outages and maintenance activities. The four identical variable speed drives (VSD) operating all four mill motors are Sinamics Perfect Harmony GH180 units. The VSDs are fitted with cell bypass technology which enables them to internally bypass and isolate faulty components and continue to operate until the next planned shutdown.In 2014, Siemens and OTML conducted a mill drive train audit and identified areas for potential improvements. Initially, OTML’s main goal was to change the operating concept from fixed to variable speed and to install new VSDs while keeping the existing motors. Over the next two years, Siemens developed several modernisation scenarios for the existing mill drive train, ranging from a partial modernization (keeping the existing motors) to a complete modernisation (installing new motors and VSDs). In 2016, OTML chose the latter. A change from fixed to variable speed will improve operational efficiency of the Grinding mills and increase throughput, while the change of the motors and the installation of the condition monitoring system will reduce maintenance and increase availability of the complete mill drive trains. With the increase of mill motor capacity to 4.2 MW (megawatt), momentary power limitations and throughput restrictions caused by changing ore hardness in the mill are eliminated. The online condition monitoring system will allow OTML to track mechanical wear and assist with proactive maintenance. Through remote access and the two year drive train analytics contract, Siemens will provide OTML with quarterly reports on equipment performance and host a cloud based, online platform where OTML can check on historical drive train data as well as actual process and equipment status information. This will enable OTML to better manage their new infrastructure and increase overall productivity. The new drive trains are scheduled to be commissioned in autumn 2018.The new VSD systems also have related benefits. Reduced starting currents allow the mills to start smoother, which also leads to the elimination of mechanical stress on pinion and girth gear. Frozen Charge detection is automatically performed during every start-up, which helps save precious process time. From the start command through grinding operation up to the stop in a balanced position, Siemens Mill Technology Control guarantees optimal load sharing between the two mill motors, while variable speed allows compensating for liner wear and adapting to fluctuations in ore size and consistency.The project involving the two SAG mills is the culmination of a longstanding relationship and successful cooperation between Siemens and OTML that started in 2005. Siemens has since been committed to improve operational performance in many areas on site – most recently through the supply of two Planurex P2KB20 planetary gear units in 2015. As part of a two-year service contract, Siemens will continue to support the drive technology implemented in the SAG mills 1 and 2.last_img read more

first_imgRyanair’s epic fail of redirecting a London-Thessaloniki flight, to Timisoara in Romania instead became a meme last week, with people across the globe turning “For Ryanair it’s not about the destination, it’s all about the journey” into a viral slogan.Even though, according to the Irish low-fare carrier, the decision was made based on harsh weather conditions in Greece, passengers were caught off guard.With negative publicity around the airline at an all-time high, Ryanair’s board has announced that it will be stopping its domestic service linking Athens with Thessaloniki, ANA-MPA reported.The last flight linking Greece’s two main cities will take place in March 2019 while ticket sales for flights originally scheduled from April onward have been halted already.Despite the Thessaloniki-Athens being the most popular domestic flight for Greece, Ryanair has announced that it is making a conscious decision to shift its focus to international flights to and from Greece.As of March, the carrier will only be conducting two domestic services, the Athens-Hania and the Thessaloniki-Santorini links.

first_imgLes statines, un bénéfice à long-terme sur le risque cardiovasculaireSelon une récente étude, les statines, médicaments anti-cholestérol continueraient de réduire le risque d’accidents cardiovasculaires même après l’arrêt du traitement. Les maladies cardiovasculaires représentent aujourd’hui la première cause de mortalité dans le monde et touchent chaque année des centaines de milliers de personnes en France. Ainsi, les médecins alertent régulièrement sur les facteurs qui favorisent le risque cardiovasculaire tels que l’excès de poids, le diabète ou encore l’hypercholestérolémie. Dans ce contexte, c’est une découverte prometteuse que vient tout juste de révéler une étude parue mercredi dans la revue The Lancet. Intitulée Heart Protection Study (HPS), celle-ci suggère que les statines, médicaments anticholestérol seraient bénéfiques pour le risque cardiovasculaire et continueraient à l’être même après l’arrêt du traitement. À lire aussiInfarctus : définition, signes et symptômes, causes, comment réagir face à un infarctus ?Pour arriver à une telle conclusion, les chercheurs ont suivi pendant plus de cinq ans 20.536 patients à risque de maladies cardiovasculaires qu’ils ont répartis par tirage au sort en deux groupes : l’un a reçu 40 milligrammes par jour de simvastatine quand l’autre n’a reçu qu’un placebo. Sur cette période, le groupe sous statine a ainsi eu une réduction de son mauvais cholestérol (“LDL cholestérol”) assortie d’une baisse de 23% d’événements vasculaires majeurs, d’infarctus notamment, comparé au groupe placebo, rapporte l’AFP.Après cela, les chercheurs ont continué de suivre les patients pendant les six années suivant l’essai thérapeutique. Période au cours de laquelle ils ont constaté que “les bénéfices de la statine ont persisté parmi ceux qui avaient cessé d’en prendre”, expliquent-ils. De plus, la réduction du nombre d’attaques cardiaques et cérébrales ou d’autres maladies cardiovasculaires, obtenue avec les statines, ne s’est pas accompagnée d’une augmentation des cancers ou d’autres pathologies ni de la mortalité pendant ces onze années de surveillance, d’après l’étude. En effet, comme ils l’expliquent, les scientifiques craignaient qu’une prise de statines sur une longue période ne fasse augmenter l’incidence du cancer, mais aucune différence n’a été observée entre le groupe traité par statine et le groupe placebo. Une découverte rassurante “L’absence d’excès de risque de cancer ou d’autres pathologies majeures pendant les onze années de suivi chez ceux qui avaient pris la statine est très rassurante pour les médecins prescripteurs et pour les patients, de plus en plus nombreux, qui prennent des statines pour diminuer leur risque cardiovasculaire”, conclut ainsi le Dr Richard Bulbulia d’Oxford, co-signataire de l’étude cité par l’AFP.Le 23 novembre 2011 à 12:54 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

first_imgMark Schleisman examines his cover crop on M&M Farms in Lake City, Iowa.The American Soybean Association (ASA) presented Mark Schleisman, from Lake City, Iowa, with the 2018 National Conservation Legacy Award during the annual ASA Awards Banquet on Wednesday, Feb. 28, at Commodity Classic in Anaheim, Calif.Prior to Schleisman’s recognition as the program’s national winner, he was named the Midwest Regional winner of the Conservation Legacy Award. The national award winner is chosen from three regional winners. The other 2018 regional winners were Dave and Linda Burrier, Union Bridge, Md. (Northeast Region) and Grant Norwood, Mansfield, Tenn. (South Region).The Conservation Legacy Awards program is a national program designed to recognize the outstanding environmental and conservation achievements of soybean farmers, which help to produce more sustainable U.S. soybeans. Along with ASA, the program is co-sponsored by BASF, Monsanto, Corn & Soybean Digest magazine, the United Soybean Board/Soybean Checkoff and Valent.Schleisman heads up M&M Farms, a diverse family operation in Calhoun County, Iowa. M&M Farms grows 4,500 acres of crops, including 2,000 acres of popcorn; manages 360 cow-calf pairs; and finish approximately 30,000 head of pigs.With livestock being such an important part of the M&M Farms operation, Schleisman was approached by Practical Farmers of Iowa to do a three-year research project documenting the economic benefits of cover crops and grazing. He and three other farmers documented the feed value of the biomass produced by cover crops.“The amount of cover crop growth we get is very weather dependent, but we have seen a value of $70 an acre or more, with our top year coming in at $76 an acre,” Schleisman said. “The benefit to the cows is tremendous.”The family started with cereal rye as its choice for a cover crop and now is adding other species such as oilseed radishes and rape. “The cows seem more satisfied on the cover crops, because they are not just eating dried up corn stalks, but getting some green material in there,” Schleisman said.The economic benefits became obvious quickly. “By our numbers, we are getting at least a three times return in the short term by grazing those cover crops, in addition to the long-term benefits we are seeing in soil health,”  Schleisman added. The soil health benefits realized on M&M Farms led them to also plant cover crops on fields where they don’t have cows graze.M&M Farms is also very engaged in protecting water quality. It is located in the Elk Run watershed, a tributary to the Raccoon River and a source of concern about nitrate. As part of a demonstration project directed by the Iowa Soybean Association in cooperation with a number of partner organizations, Schleisman installed a couple of edge-of-field practices designed to significantly cut nitrate contribution to the Raccoon River.One of these practices is a saturated buffer. It stores water under field buffers by diverting tile water into shallow laterals that raise the water table within the buffer, thus slowing outflow. The other edge-of-field treatment process is a bioreactor. It consists of a buried pit filled with a carbon source (wood chips) through which tile water is diverted. The carbon provides a food source for microorganisms; they use nitrate to metabolize the carbon, converting the nitrate to harmless atmospheric nitrogen gas.“I have seen nitrate levels entering the bioreactor running 15 to 22 parts per million,” Schleisman said. “It is exiting the bioreactor at less than one part per million.”He has shared that story with many farm audiences, and has been featured in many interviews conducted for urban audiences as well.There are many more innovative and sustainable practices that Schleisman and the other recipients of the 2018 Conservation Legacy Awards are putting into action on their farms today.

first_imgBut Trump’s surprise order this week comes as officials from the department’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF)  are well into a review of whether they can regulate the devices without action from Congress.The path to a ban is neither simple nor quick. An ATF ban on the accessories, which allow semi-automatic rifles to mimic machine guns, would likely thrust the department into a prolonged legal battle with gun manufacturers while the devices remain on the market.But any congressional effort to create new gun control laws would need support from the pro-gun Republican majority. And Republicans have moved in the other direction, attempting to loosen gun laws, even after 59 people were killed in Las Vegas.Despite the president stepping up pressure on the department in the aftermath of the Florida high school shooting, some ATF officials maintain that only Congress can render such devices illegal, and, in any event, amending existing gun laws or passing new legislation would be a faster approach.Acting ATF director Thomas Brandon has sent mixed signals on what the agency can do. He told lawmakers in December that the ATF and Justice Department would not have initiated the review if a ban “wasn’t a possibility at the end,” but he has also expressed doubt that it would be able to do so without congressional intervention.ATF reviewed bump stocks and approved them in 2010, finding they did not amount to machine guns that are regulated under the National Firearms Act that dates to the 1930s.But after bump stocks were used in Las Vegas, the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history, calls mounted for a ban. The Justice Department announced in December it would again review whether they can be prohibited under federal law. Trump told officials to expedite the review, which the Justice Department said is ongoing.ATF has received about 100,000 comments from the public and the firearms industry and says it has devoted additional manpower to reviewing them as quickly as possible.Many of the comments are from gun owners angry over any attempt to regulate the accessory, which they view as a slippery slope toward outlawing guns all together. Gun Owners of America, for example, wrote that doing so “would set an incredibly dangerous precedent which would leave to administrative bans on virtually any type of firearm.”In that sense, they agree with Democrats like Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California that it’s up to Congress to make any changes. After the Florida shooting, Republicans have proposed strengthening federal background checks but may not consider any gun control measure beyond that.It would be legally problematic and politically untenable for the ATF to change course on its earlier finding, said Michael Bouchard, a retired assistant director who is now president of the ATF Association. Reversing its earlier evaluation could be seen as an admission that it was legally flawed, which manufacturers could seize on in court.“How can they just change their mind now and go to court and defend that position, other than to say the president told us to find a way to ban them?” said Bouchard, whose association of current and former ATF officials wrote a letter to lawmakers in October arguing the burden is on Congress to clarify or modify existing law. “There are so many other kinds of devices that mimic what a bump stock does, it’s a can of worms as to which one you ban and which one you don’t.” Share APIn this Oct. 4, 2017, photo, a device called a “bump stock” is attached to a semi-automatic rifle at the Gun Vault store and shooting range in South Jordan, Utah. The National Rifle Association announced its support Ton Oct. 5 for regulating the devices that can effectively convert semi-automatic rifles into fully automated weapons and that were apparently used in the Las Vegas massacre to lethal effect.
