Yukon to apply ice BandAid to cross river reach stranded residents minister

first_imgDAWSON CITY, Yn – The Yukon government plans to apply an “ice Band-Aid” to the Yukon River outside Dawson City after the channel failed to freeze sufficiently for the second year in a row, leaving hundreds of residents stranded over the winter.Highways Minister Richard Mostyn said work on an ice bridge to the community of West Dawson will begin January and should take about three weeks to complete.“This has never been tried before in the territory. It’s a situation that I’d prefer not to have to do, but we’ve got conditions in the Klondike these days that are abnormal,” he said.“Last year, the river didn’t freeze. This year, it’s not looking like it’s going to freeze again. So we’re going to take some action.”The Yukon River usually freezes over within a few weeks after the summer ferry stops operating, allowing crossings to be made initially on foot, by snowmobile and eventually in a vehicle.Public works crews usually flood, smooth and widen the route after a few more weeks to create an ice highway.Mostyn had promised West Dawson residents after the river failed to freeze last year that the government would take action if the same thing happened this year.An ice bridge would reconnect about 200 people to the main part of town.An alternate crossing point does exist, but accessing it involves a 10 to 15 kilometre journey south of town on foot, by dog team, on skis or with a snowmobile.Mostyn said the typical recipe for building an ice bridge is to spray ice water over a river to encourage it to freeze.He said he is unsure if the equipment is available for the spraying technique, but the government is also considering other methods, which he described as old fashioned and less efficient.The “manufactured ice formation” project will cost about $100,000 to build and maintain, plus an extra $100,000 for one-time engineering costs, Mostyn said.He said he and his team are “fairly confident” the bridge can be built, though there are no guarantees.“The climate is not what it once was, and so we’re going to have to be innovative,” Mostyn said. “This is one of the projects we’re going to start with.”The strategy is a way of helping the Mother Nature, which he described as a “fickle mistress.”Wayne Potoroka, the mayor of Dawson city, said he was glad to hear news of what he called an “almost surreal” plan.“I think it’s worth a shot,” he added, saying that Yukon is feeling the effects of climate change. “This is what adaptation looks like.”Mostyn ruled out the possibility of a permanent bridge being built in the near future to West Dawson.(Whitehorse Star)last_img read more

African economic growth still strong but development and aid lag UN report

1 April 2008African economies are forecast to grow by an average of 6.2% in 2008 after a strong 2007, but the struggle against extreme poverty and international support for systemic improvement lag behind, according to a United Nations report released today. The latest edition of the Economic Report on Africa (ERA 2008), the annual joint publication of the UN Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) and the African Union (AU), says that growth on the continent was driven mainly by robust global demand and high commodity prices.Other growth factors in Africa include continued consolidation of macroeconomic stability and improving macroeconomic management, greater commitment to economic reforms, increased private capital flows, debt relief and increasing non-fuel exports, the report says. It adds that Africa has also witnessed a decline in political conflicts and wars, especially in West and Central Africa, though peace remains fragile in some parts of the continent and growth performance varied sharply across countries and regions.Key challenges to Africa’s growth in 2008 include the risk of sharper slowdown in the United States economy, a fall in global commodity demand and prices and high oil prices. In addition to political instability in some countries, inefficient public infrastructure and unreliable energy supply at the national level as well as poor integration of transportation and energy networks at the regional level continue to pose economic constraints. This year’s report, under the title Africa and the Monterrey Consensus: Tracking Performance and Progress, also assesses progress in the implementation of the 2002 Monterrey Consensus on international commitments for development in Africa. Debt relief, one area of the consensus, has made much progress, the report found. However, very limited progress has been made in other core areas such as mobilizing domestic and international resources for development and promoting trade as a development engine. The establishment of donor groups and an annual African Ministerial Conference to monitor progress on the consensus is a bold step forward in this area, the report concludes. “It is hoped that these monitoring mechanisms will help to turn the promises made by development partners into deeds. The implementation of these commitments is important for Africa to achieve meaningful results in poverty reduction and lay the foundation for a brighter future for its peoples,” ECA said in a press release on the report’s launch. read more

Tim Hortons rolling out Interac Flash payment system next week

TORONTO — Tim Hortons has joined other Canadian retailers in adding Interac Flash cards to the number of ways customers can make cashless payments at the counter.The restaurant chain expects more than 2,300 locations across the country to be accepting the wireless touch cards by the end of October.Rather than adding to a credit card balance, the Interac cards draw down the funds from the customer’s bank account.[np-related]Unlike older types of credit and debt cards, the new generation of Interac cards use a quick-touch wireless reader rather than a swipe stripe or computer chip.Due to its size, Tims will be one of Canada’s biggest users of Interac Flash but it won’t be alone.Indigo book stores, Cineplex movie theatres and Esso-branded convenience stores are among the retailers that have said they’ll join the Interac Flash mob.In most other announcements so far, however, the retailers don’t expect to have their locations up to speed until sometime in 2013.But Tim Hortons Inc. (THI) said Tuesday it expects to have more than 3,000 restaurants accepting Interac Flash by the end of this year. read more

Ontario auto sector gets 40M from province for innovation training

Flavio Volpe, president of Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association, said the announcement mirrors what suppliers have been asking of government.“For the supply sector, what’s important is as long as the automakers stay here and make cars here and buy parts from us we’ve got a very healthy and efficient business,” he said.The president and CEO of the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters association said the plan is an important step in creating a competitive business environment.“We are particularly pleased to see commitments focused on reducing the cost of manufacturing in Ontario and the openness to exploring investments supports for the manufacturing sector,” Dennis Darby said in a statement.“These two actions are critical to boost manufacturing investment in the province and improve the competitiveness of globally integrated sectors, including automotive.” WOODBRIDGE, Ont. — Ontario is putting $40 million over three years into a new plan for the auto sector, including funding for innovation and training.The money is part of a 10-year plan for strengthening the auto sector’s competitiveness, which comes as General Motors plans to shut down a plant in Oshawa, Ont., at the end of the year — a move that will see 2,600 workers lose their jobs.Economic Development Minister Todd Smith said part of the plan is aimed at workers like those at GM, who can be retrained and still work in the auto sector. Terence Corcoran: Jerry Dias’s Oshawa GM battle can’t stop an auto-industry revolution General Motors layoffs to total 14,700 factory and white-collar workers General Motors moving ahead with salaried job cuts, including a ‘modest’ number in Canada Aerospace industry looks to get back on government agenda ‘so Oshawa doesn’t happen to us’ “We want to give those auto workers an opportunity to get trained quickly,” he said. “Micro-credentialling is part of our plan, so they can get up to speed and not just continue jobs in the current wave of auto sector jobs, but in the automobile sector of the future.”A micro-credentials pilot will focus on targeted retraining for highly specific skills. The province will also modernize apprenticeship training, with the goal of making it more responsive to auto-sector needs.The plan also strives to create a more competitive business climate, which includes removing some regulatory barriers, streamlining approvals and certification for auto manufacturing sites, reviewing the industrial electricity rate, and international promotion of Ontario’s auto sector.“Our government understands what auto companies need to thrive and prosper in our province,” said Premier Doug Ford. “This is like Christmas coming — us getting elected — to industries across the province. They’re as happy as anything. They actually have a business-minded government.”Ontario is the first province to allow on-road testing of autonomous vehicles, and the plan includes enabling the private sector to develop a province-wide network of autonomous vehicle infrastructure.As part of the $40 million, an automotive modernization program to help parts suppliers become more innovative will make $10 million available to small and medium suppliers, who can each qualify for up to $100,000 as long as the company itself matches the funds.We are particularly pleased to see commitments focused on reducing the cost of manufacturing in Ontario …Dennis Darby, CEO, Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters read more

Football Ohio State releases Week 5 depth chart prior to Rutgers game

OSU coach Urban Meyer prepares to lead the Buckeyes onto the field before the OSU- Army game on Sep. 16. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorThe No. 11 Ohio State football team (3-1, 1-0) has shown substantial progress in its last two games with a 54-21 win against UNLV Saturday and a 38-7 victory versus Army two weeks ago.. As such, the team has not seen any drastic changes in the depth chart in its weekly update.The only change this week was the removal of defensive tackle Malik Barrow from the fourth spot at his position. Barrow suffered a season-ending torn ACL during Saturday’s win against UNLV.Freshman middle linebacker Tuf Borland was still listed as a co-starter with redshirt senior Chris Worley. Worley missed all of last week’s game against UNLV with a foot sprain, the same injury that took him out of the first quarter against Army. Redshirt sophomore C.J. Saunders remains listed as the third-string H-back under Parris Campbell and K.J. Hill.The depth chart can be found here. read more

Apple restricts sale of iBooks Author works to Apple devices

first_imgApple’s Education event yesterday set out the company’s plan to really shake up the textbook industry. Not only does iBooks 2 promise cheaper textbooks for everyone, it adds interactivity, search capabilities, and always up-to-date content. Then came news of iBooks Author, which allows anyone to use a well thought out set of tools to create their own books for free. You can then proceed to sell them and make some money from your work. It sounds fantastic, but there is one big caveat.After you’ve spent time creating your new book on a Mac, it comes time to publish it and sell it through the iBookstore. However, at this point Apple pops up a note which states that any book created with iBooks Author can only be published on the iBookstore. In other words, in return for giving you a free tool for book creation, Apple demands that book (in that form) only ever be read on Apple devices.This is also enforced in the EULA no one reads. It states more clearly that if you are offering your book for free, then it’s fine to take the content elsewhere. But if you intend to charge for the book, you have to sign a separate agreement with Apple and distribution will only ever occur through Apple. You can view this two ways. On the one hand Apple is giving you a free tool with which to create books and wants a cut and some control over the work in return. The alternate view is, this is Apple’s attempt to ensure content is restricted to its devices in a bid to get more people buying Apple hardware because it’s the only place to view a growing catalog of content.The real loser in this is potentially the author who chooses to create their book solely in iBooks Author. Apple has made it super easy to create a digital book, but your work will never be seen on other bookstores for Android and Windows devices, unless of course you give it away or Apple consent to let you distribute it elsewhere (highly unlikely). Any budding authors should keep this in mind. Great, free tools can come with some restrictions, and iBooks Author is no exception. The problem is you may not realize until the point where your book is ready to publish how limiting iBooks Author actually is.One thing that remains unclear is how restrictive these terms are. For example, Apple may be able to block you selling the equivalent of a book created in iBooks Author elsewhere in terms of the layout and interactivity. But can they legally stop you taking the content (words, images) you created and repackaging them in a different book? That’s highly unlikely. If you create all your content before loading up iBooks Author, and just treat it as a final step before publishing, then you should be fine to publish elsewhere too.Read more at Venomous Porridgelast_img read more

Tonguecontrolled MP3 player conducts music through your teeth

first_imgEver wanted to look like a James Bond villian AND play music using just your mouth? No? Didn’t think so, but if you want to or not the point is you now can thanks to an unusual and certainly novel new gadget that plays music through your teeth.Concept designer Aisen Caro Chacin has invented the tongue controlled MP3 player that allows you to listen to your favorite music using bone conduction. Chacin calls his invention the Play-A-Grill. It’s a combination of digital music and a grill, which are those supposedly fashionable mouth pieces some music artists have been seen wearing.The problem is, they don’t look great when worn, and it’s not something we could see the modern day teenager using without getting hassled. It also looks pretty uncomfortable to wear. Anyone who has had braces knows how irritating retainers are, and this is pretty much the equivalent.This technology works because of the grill that sits on your teeth. The sound can be transmitted using bone conduction through your skull rather than by the more traditional speakers or headphones. And as there’s no speaker, only you can hear the music as long as your ears are plugged.There seems to be no details about how much a Play-A-Grill would cost, but I imagine because it has a mouth fitting you’d need to build in some kind of adjustment or custom make each unit, which is going to keep the price high.While I can’t see this being a popular alternative to an iPod and speakers, people with disabilities could benefit from the tongue controlled device if they have limited movement.via BitRebelslast_img read more

Gardaí investigating fire at landmark manor owned by JP McManuss brother

first_img GARDAÍ ARE INVESTIGATING  a suspicious fire at a landmark residence owned by a brother of billionaire horse racing tycoon JP McManus.The blaze which destroyed the former Bishop’s Palace, North Circular Road, Limerick, broke out shortly before 11.30pm.The eight-bedroom manor, Kilmoyle House, was the former residence of Catholic Limerick bishops but has not been occupied for years.Gerry McManus, a brother of well-known philanthropist and racehorse owner JP McManus, purchased it in 2014 for an undisclosed price after it went on the market for €1.1m.It was sold by property developer Aidan Brooks who purchased it in 2007 for €26m making it one of the country’s most expensive properties. Brooks had previously planned to build a nursing home and retirement village on the site.It’s believed Gerry McManus was planning to carry out remedial works at the historic house. In 2015, a planning notice at the property stated that Gerry McManus intended to apply for planning permission for seven works on the site. The notice stated that he wished to remove late 20th century house extensions and outbuildings, make modifications to the existing house, construct a gate lodge near the entrance, construct courtyard buildings, construct an underground garage, and make repairs and alterations to the site boundaries.Brooks, (46), also from Limerick, but who runs a vast property portfolio from London, retained five acres of land around Kilmoyle House, leaving one acre as part of the sale to McManus. He also owns Portland House, the former Church of Ireland’s bishop’s residence, located next door.Built around 1845, Kilmoyle House has 7,159 square feet of living space, and is listed as a building of important architectural heritage.The three-storey property, which includes one acre of land, was destroyed in last night’s fire.Firefighters attached to Limerick city and county fire service fought the flames for four hours before bringing it under control.“Two fire trucks, and a water tanker vehicle were dispatched to the scene. On arrival the house was well alight,” said a source.Fire crews also used an aerial extendable ladder to fight the fire from above as it swept through the building.“The house has been extensively damaged. Gardai have sealed the house off pending a technical examination this morning,” the source added.No one was injured.Mayorstone Gardai are investigating the circumstances surrounding the cause of the fire.Read: ‘Hero’ gardaí rescue child from sixth floor apartment as witness Senator calls for their pay to be hiked Share92 Tweet Email3 http://jrnl.ie/3062704 Nov 4th 2016, 10:14 AM Short URL Firefighters working on the fire last night Friday 4 Nov 2016, 10:14 AM Gardaí investigating fire at landmark manor owned by JP McManus’s brother The fire broke out at the former Bishop’s Palace in Limerick just before 11.30pm last night.

School bus crash in University City sends students to hospital

Your next Toyota might have a fragrance dispenser loaded with tear gas

But automakers have yet to add a personal twist that also weaponizes the system — that is, until a Toyota patent application surfaced.A recently published patent application from Toyota describes, quite simply, a “vehicle fragrance dispenser system.” As the application notes, this system goes above and beyond the current systems by adding a personal twist. It can use mobile devices to determine if a specific occupant is entering the vehicle, at which point it can dispense one of multiple perfumes specific to the occupant’s tastes. Current systems only have space for one fragrance in the system at a time.Enlarge ImageEven your perfume atomizer will be connected to the cloud in this lovely little dystopia we’re building. USPTO But wait, there’s more. Because some people might have problems with specific fragrances, the system also includes a deodorizer. It can deploy as soon as the occupant leaves the vehicle, returning the car’s scent to neutral as it awaits the next occupant, who might not like the last guy’s preference for fresh pine or whatever. The system can also dispense fragrances ahead of a person entering the car, filling the car with scent instead of forcing the occupant to wait for the HVAC system to do its thing, like current applications.So what about the tear gas? Here’s where it gets clever. Since the system is built to detect the occupants, if it detects an “illegitimate engine start,” as the application says, it can dispense tear gas instead of perfume, likely sending the scofflaw running. Hopefully that deodorizer is capable of removing tear gas from the car, otherwise the actual owner will be in for an eye-opening (and eye-watering) experience later on. Hopefully the trunk has an eye-rinse station.Of course, the beauty of a patent application is that it allows for some wild thinking without necessarily making it to reality. Some automakers routinely apply to patent technologies to beat competitors to the punch. So, while this system might not appear in your next Toyota, it’s good to know that the automaker is thinking about some… unorthodox ways to keep your car safe while also making it smell pretty. 2018 Toyota Century is a Marvel movie star car in waiting 94 Photos Auto Tech Car Industrylast_img read more

BNP for constitutional amendment for pollstime govt

first_img.Senior BNP leader Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain on Monday urged the government to amend the constitution to insert the provision of an election-time government.”The prime minister has recently said an election-time government will be in place, but there’s no existence of such administration in the constitution,” he said.Speaking at a discussion, he further said, “If you (PM) accept the election-time government system, you can amend the constitution to incorporate the provision since parliament is in function, and you have two-thirds majority to do that.”Mosharraf, a BNP standing committee member, said a non-party neutral election-time government system is crucial to include in the constitution to hold a fair and credible election and empower people to elect their representatives.He warned that their party together with people will take to the streets to realise their demand if the government does not take step for arranging the polls under the non-party government.Jatiyatabadi Muktijoddha Dal organised the programme at the Jatiya Press Club, marking the 82nd birth anniversary of BNP founder Ziaur Rahman.In her recent address to the nation, prime minister Sheikh Hasina said an election-time government will be formed as per the constitution which will provide all-out cooperation to the election commission in conducting the next election.Reacting to her comments, BNP leaders have been saying that there is a provision in the current constitution to constitute an election-time government.About Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader’s comment that BNP’s stance on the election-time government is not clear, Mosharraf said, “There’s no ambiguity in our demand as we’ve clearly said the election-time government must be neural one, no matter what its name may be.”He said the non-party government will only assist the election commission to hold a fair and impartial election.The BNP leader alleged that the government is rather trying to mislead people over the polls-time administration issue.Mosharraf said they will go to people to drum up their support once their chairperson unveils the framework on the election-time government.last_img read more

Mitsero crew need two more weeks to complete search
