Ottawa considers approval of BC methane rules called weak in report

first_imgThe federal government has proposed accepting British Columbia’s rules to cut methane emissions that cause climate change despite an independent report that says the regulations would be weaker than Ottawa’s.Some environmental groups fear the same could happen in Alberta and Saskatchewan, which they say would make it harder for Canada to meet its greenhouse gas commitments.“It’s a weak first step,” said Jan Gorski of the Pembina Institute, a clean energy think-tank. “If they’re willing to approve regulations that are subpar in B.C., then it really puts the opportunity to meet the climate goals at risk.”Methane is a greenhouse gas between 30 and 80 times more potent than carbon dioxide. Almost half of Canada’s methane emissions leak from oil and gas facilities and the governing Liberals have announced targets to reduce them by 45 per cent.On the weekend, the federal government announced the start of a consultation period for accepting B.C.’s proposed regulations instead of those developed in Ottawa.“(The B.C. proposal) will result in methane emission reductions that meet the expected impact,” says a government document.But in February, an independent scientific review of fracking commissioned by the B.C. government concluded the province’s proposed rules weren’t as stringent as the federal ones.Under B.C.’s proposals, a leaking well could emit more than twice the amount of methane than Ottawa will allow when its rules come into effect next year.“Potentially, a leaking well can exceed the federal limit,” the review says.The review also points out that the province would reduce the amount of inspection and leak detection that federal rules require.Federal rules will require inspections at least three times a year. British Columbia would require them once yearly.The energy industry supports methane reduction goals. But it has said the best way to achieve them is to let producers focus on an overall target instead of requiring standard testing for all facilities. The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers argues that focusing on the largest emitters instead of imposing across-the-board inspections would give the biggest bang for the buck. “The incremental volume of leaks detected and repaired with a survey frequency of three times per year … has not been high and,consequently, may result in much higher abatement costs,” the association said in a letter to B.C.’s regulator.  The problem, said Gorksi, is that it’s tough to measure how much methane escapes from large emitters.“What they’re proposing is an outcome-based regulation. For that kind of regulation to work, you need really good data.”Alberta and Saskatchewan have proposed similar outcome-based approaches for methane reduction. Gorski said rules drafted by both provinces would fall short of Ottawa’s reduction costs.  Previous studies suggest industry estimates of methane emissions from oil and gas fields — especially heavy oil fields — are far low of the mark. The B.C.-commissioned review quotes similar evidence.“Leakage incident rates are strongly influenced by reporting standards rather than actual well failure rate,” it says. Gorski said requiring producers to use best practices everywhere is the surest way to meet the reduction targets.— Follow Bob Weber on Twitter at @row1960 Bob Weber, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

UN alarm at reports that Sudanese police attack displaced camp in South

“Such actions severely threaten the safety and security of civilians, who have a right to protection under international humanitarian law,” UN spokesperson Marie Okabe told reporters today in New York as she urged restraint.The UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Sudan has called for the immediate establishment of a humanitarian corridor at the Kalma camp, which is home to about 80,000 IDPs, so that the injured may be evacuated.The joint UN-African Union peacekeeping mission in Darfur (UNAMID) has sent police and military patrols to Kalma to confirm the details of the incident and provide any assistance needed.Ms. Okabe added that the mission’s leadership is extremely concerned by today’s incident, stressing that the circumstances will be investigated and the entire situation is being closely monitored.UNAMID has also reported banditry by Janjaweed militiamen at two IDP camps in West Darfur state and inter-tribal clashes in a South Darfur village.The mission has been in place in Darfur since the start of the year in a bid to try to quell the deadly fighting and humanitarian suffering that has afflicted the impoverished Sudanese region since 2003.In the past five years an estimated 300,000 people have been killed, either through direct combat, disease, malnutrition or reduced life expectancy, while another 2.7 million people have been forced to flee from their homes because of fighting between rebels, Government forces and allied Janjaweed. 25 August 2008The United Nations has voiced grave concern over reports that Sudanese police vehicles today surrounded a camp for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in South Darfur and that civilians were killed during subsequent attacks inside the camp. read more

UNESCO chief voices concern about Israels announcement on holy sites

Israel says it is adding the tombs of the biblical patriarch Abraham in Hebron and the biblical matriarch Rachel in Bethlehem to its list of national heritage sites, sparking concern from Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Robert Serry, who warned against moves that could prejudice the resumption of peace talks.Irina Bokova, Director-General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), endorsed Mr. Serry’s view that these sites are “of historical and religious significance not only to Judaism but also to Islam, and to Christianity as well.” She reiterated UNESCO’s long-standing conviction that cultural heritage should serve as a means for dialogue, according to a news release issued by the Paris-based agency.Mr. Ban discussed the issue with the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense of Israel, Ehud Barak, when the two met earlier this week in New York. The Secretary-General voiced regret at certain recent developments on the ground, including Israel’s announcement about the holy sites. Mr. Serry also discussed the issue with Israeli President Shimon Peres, who assured him that Israel intended to fully respect religious rights in places of worship.UNESCO has been mandated by its member States to provide assistance to the Palestinian Authority in the fields of education and culture. It has been working with the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities of the Palestinian Authority and Palestinian civil society to protect and preserve the cultural heritage sites in the West Bank and is committed to continue doing so, the agency stated. The Director-General is committed to strengthening “UNESCO’s financial and technical assistance to the Palestinian educational and cultural institutions in order to address new needs and problems resulting from recent developments,” it added. 26 February 2010The head of the lead United Nations agency on education and culture has added her voice to those expressing concern at Israel’s announcement that it is adding two holy sites in occupied Palestinian territory to its list of national heritage sites. read more

Track and Field KarenDennis led Ohio State takes part in firstever Power

Coach Karen Dennis sits front and center during her teams celebration after her team won theBig Ten Championship on Saturday Feb. 24, 2018 at Spire Institute in Geneva, OH. Credit: Ethan Clewell | Lantern ReporterThere are only five men’s and women’s track and field programs in the Power Five led by women. This weekend in Los Angeles all five of those programs, including director of track and field and cross country Karen Dennis-led Ohio State, will compete in the Power 5 Trailblazer Challenge.Tennessee, Miami, USC, Ole Miss and Ohio State will compete in the meet.This is the first time a meet that has a woman as the dual-program director for each team competing.“It’s groundbreaking. But for me, I am hoping that it is an awaking so to speak for other programs to consider making women the primary coach,” Dennis said.Dennis has been a coach since 1977 and has seen the difficulties of women becoming coaches first-hand for decades. “I was insulted that men were expected to coach women, but I thought that women who knew the sport were equally or better than men,” Dennis said. “For me this has been a evolution of my career, where the sport has changed and I’ve been fortunate enough to be a part of that change.”During the indoor season, Dennis became the first woman to win the Big Ten Men’s Coach of the Year. The meet offers Ohio State a chance for redemption against high-profile national programs after a disappointing performance at the indoor NCAA indoor championship meet.Men’s previewOhio State’s 4×400-meter relay team will meet its toughest opponent on the track in USC. The Trojans broke the world record with a time of 3:00.77 during the NCAA indoor national championships. Early in the season, teams will test their rosters and split up their relay teams, which Ohio State did at the Black and Gold Challenge. Dennis said that won’t be the case this weekend, due to the meet being higher profile.“You don’t want to invite all of these people down here and have a watered-down meet,” Dennis said.One of the other major matchups will involve Ohio State sophomore Alexander Lomong in the 800-meter run. Lomong, Mississippi’s Waleed Suliman and USC’s Robert Ford are all within a second of each other’s personal-best times.Lomong said he has focused on running long distances in order to help his body endure the race pace for the length of 800 meters. Field events might be an opportunity for Ohio State to separate itself from the competition. Senior Cole Gorski is coming off a record-breaking pole vault performance last week and his strongest competition has a chance to be his teammate, junior Coty Cobb.Women’s previewSenior Maggie Barrie will match up against All-American talent in the 400-meter dash. USC’s Kendall Ellis won the indoor national championship two weeks ago. Freshman Aziza Ayoub, Miami’s Kayla Johnson and Ole Miss’s Maddie McHugh all have personal bests separated by fewer than two seconds.Junior Sade Olatoye will face Ole Miss’s Janeah Stewart in shot put. Stewart and Olatoye faced off several times during the indoor season. read more

Ohio State dodgeball team set to host national tournament

A national tournament is coming to Ohio State. The sport involves throwing a round ball. If you guessed baseball, you’re wrong.The Ohio State club dodgeball team is set to host the sport’s national tournament at the RPAC Saturday and Sunday.Ohio State (6-5) is a founding member of the National Collegiate Dodgeball Association, which started in 2002. OSU has attended every national tournament and has two championships, 2005 and 2006.The Buckeyes have played in three tournaments so far this season including the Round Robin tournament at OSU, the Redhawk invitational at the University of Miami University (Ohio), and the Ohio Dodgeball Cup at Kent State University.Jeff Starr, a second-year engineering student and club dodgeball member said OSU should have won more games this year and that the team is better than its record reflects. He is expecting a good result this weekend at nationals.“I think that we will actually do amazing,” Starr said. “We’ve been really close with a lot of the top teams and a lot of those tournaments, we didn’t have all of our guys. We weren’t all 100 percent. I think everyone is going to be ready to go, 100 percent.”Currently there are between 25 and 30 active members, coach, and OSU alumnus, Jude DuPart said.DuPart said not all members travel to tournaments because of midterms or scheduling conflicts, which is the reason some teams play more matches than other teams.“It really varies on how much traveling you can do. So the teams up in Michigan that are a stone’s throw away … there’s four teams up there that are all about two hours to 30 minutes away from each other,” DuPart said.DuPart said the biggest benefit of having the tournament at home is getting more players involved.“We’ll definitely be able to see a lot more kids get out there and play,” DuPart said. “A lot of kids have other obligations and can’t make the travel commitments to be able to play and see a large competitive style game.”Aside from not having to travel, Starr said another advantage of hosting the national tournament in Columbus comes with team members having the comfort of sleeping in their own beds.“Last year, we were sleeping on a motel floor, so having our own beds will be nice,” Starr said.OSU team captain Josh Connor, a second-year in logistics management, agreed with Starr that home court advantage is a big deal, especially in a big tournament.“With any sport you’re playing in, having the crowd behind you will win you the momentum. Having your friends and family behind you goes a long way,” Connor said.Starr added it’ll be nice to hear cheers for the home team.“We definitely get a lot more home fans cheering for us and not for the other teams, that’ll help,” Starr said.DuPart said OSU finished fourth in the national tournament last year. This year he is hopeful for a good result despite the more experienced teams.“Despite being a younger squad I think we’ve picked up (play) well. We’re looking pretty good,” DuPart said. “I do think there are a lot more mature teams and a lot of other teams that play pretty well, especially Grand Valley and Kent (State) is looking good this year.”Connor expects to do better at nationals than last year with a young but confident squad.“We had a pretty good season last year, I think we’re going to do better than that,” Connor said. “We’ve grown a lot, I can speak for myself I’ve become a lot more aggressive and that carries across the board. I think we have a lot more guys who feel comfortable. I think the camaraderie is even strong than it was.”The tournament is set to begin Saturday with group play from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the lower RPAC courts. It continues Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with single elimination tournament style play. read more

The cost of building a PS4 is cheaper than you would expect

first_imgWE’RE ONLY NINE days away before the PS4 arrives and while the price varies from store to store -€399 to €429 depending on where you look – have you ever wondered how much it costs to put one together?Research firm IHS iSuppli did and decided to find out by taking the console apart. After looking at the parts used, it found that the components costs €281 ($381) to build, a €118 difference between it and the selling price.The biggest cost of manufacturing are both the processing chip and the 16 memory chips the PS4 uses, which cost €73 ($100) and €65 ($88) respectively, making up half of the total cost.In comparison, the console is much cheaper than the PS3 which cost €599 when it launched back in 2006. IHS iSupply also took it apart and found that it cost roughly $805 (€595) to build. Both estimates don’t take into consideration factors such as retailer margins, shipping costs, or manufacturing costs.Usually, consoles are priced at or below cost-price to help sell as many as possible, the logic being that the profits will come from sales of games instead.More than one million PS4 consoles were sold in the first 24 hours after it launched in both the US and Canada on 15 November, and Sony expects to sell more than 5 million by March.The PS4′s biggest rival, the Xbox One, will be on sale this Friday for €499. Its predecessor, the Xbox 360, cost €409 when it launched back in 2005.Read:  Sony sold one million PS4s in 24 hours >Read: 6 things to worry about as the PS4 launches in the US >last_img read more

Lapparition dune salmonelle multirésistante suscite linquiétude

first_imgL’apparition d’une salmonelle multirésistante suscite l’inquiétudeUne équipe internationale de scientifiques s’inquiète de l’apparition et du développement considérable, en Afrique, d’une salmonelle résistante à la quasi-totalité des antibiotiques. Plus de 700 cas auraient également été recensés en Europe depuis 2002. Les salmonelloses sont des infections qui se manifestent par une fièvre, une diarrhée et d’importants vomissements. Particulièrement dangereuse chez les personnes âgées, les enfants ou les personnes immuno-déprimées, cette maladie est essentiellement due à la consommation de viandes mal cuites, de charcuterie, de fromage au lait cru ou encore d’œufs non cuits (comme dans la mayonnaise par exemple). Entre 1999 et 2008, les médecins ont recensés plus de 1,6 million de cas d’infection à la salmonelle à travers 27 pays d’Europe et près de 17.000 en France rien qu’en 2008.Si cette maladie est donc assez répandue et bien traitée, c’est une nouvelle inquiétante qu’a annoncée hier une étude publiée dans le Journal of Infectious Diseases. Celle-ci rapporte qu’une salmonelle multirésistante aux antibiotiques, Salmonella Kentucky, a fait son apparition depuis quelques années, en Afrique notamment mais aussi en Europe. Entre 2002 et 2008, près de 500 cas ont ainsi été recensés au Danemark, en France et en Grande-Bretagne, et 270 ont été comptabilisés rien que pour la France entre 2009 et 2010, rapporte TV5monde.Bien que ces chiffres ne soient pas exorbitants, ils donnent une idée de ce qui peut se passer dans les zones d’Afrique massivement contaminées par la bactérie. D’autant que, comme le souligne le Dr Weil de l’Institut Pasteur, “on a vu la zone géographique où les gens se contaminaient se modifier au cours du temps”. En effet, initialement limitée à l’Afrique de l’Est, cette zone s’est progressivement étendue à l’Afrique du Nord et de l’Ouest et même au Moyen-Orient. Cette fois-ci, c’est la volaille qui serait le principal vecteur de la maladie. Une multirésistance préoccupante À lire aussiErysipèle : contagion, traitement, de quoi s’agit-il ?Le plus inquiétant, c’est que cette épidémie s’accompagne de l’apparition de souches comme le Salmonella Kentucky qui résiste aux différents antibiotiques existants dont les aminopénicillines et les quinolones et même aux fluoroquinolones (ciprofloxacine) qui étaient pourtant jusque là l’arme maîtresse contre cette infection. Pire encore, l’équipe de François-Xavier Weil et Simon Le Hello de l’Institut Pasteur a montré l’existence, en Afrique du Nord, de nouvelles souches devenues, en plus, résistantes à la troisième génération d’antibiotiques, les céphalosporines et les carbapénèmes, les derniers traitements existants.”Là, il ne reste plus rien. Il est donc fondamental de contrôler le réservoir de la bactérie le plus rapidement possible”, a commenté le Dr. Weill, soulignant la nécessité de mettre en place dans les pays en développement des systèmes de surveillance permettant d’établir des règles de traitement pour l’homme et l’animal. “S’il y a une stratégie de traitement basée sur des données de surveillance, on retarde le plus longtemps possible l’apparition de souches résistantes”, explique-t-il. La bactérie se répand en Europe ? Enfin, dernier point d’inquiétude : 10% des cas de Salmonella Kentucky n’ont pas déclaré de séjour à l’étranger, ce qui pourrait laisser penser que la bactérie commence à s’implanter en Europe, explique l’AFP. Néanmoins, ces cas pourraient également être dus à une consommation de produits importés, les scientifiques restent donc prudents sur l’hypothèse d’une implantation européenne. “Bien sûr, il ne faut pas qu’elle s’implante dans les filières animales en France”, a  mis en garde le Dr. Weill, jugeant toutefois cette autre hypothèse “peu probable” compte tenu des mesures de contrôle en vigueur.

Bill allowing lethal removal of sea lions passes

first_imgA bill that allows tribes to lethally remove sea lions from sections of the Columbia River passed in the U.S. House on Tuesday. The bill is championed by Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Battle Ground, and Rep. Kurt Schrader, D-Ore.“For the salmon and steelhead fighting to make it upstream, today’s vote in the U.S. House significantly improves their chances of survival,” Herrera Beutler said from the House floor Tuesday. “The passage of my bipartisan bill signals a return to a healthy, balanced Columbia River ecosystem by reining in the unnatural, overcrowded sea lion population that is indiscriminately decimating our fish runs.” HR 2083, known as the Endangered Salmon and Fisheries Predation Prevention Act, amends Section 120 of the Marine Mammal Protection Act to give the Secretary of Commerce the ability to authorize state and local tribes to manage sea lions, specifically California and Steller sea lions. Tribes can seek permits to kill sea lions predating on endangered salmon runs. Federal estimates show at least 20 percent of the Columbia River spring chinook run and 15 percent of the Willamette River steelhead run are being eaten by sea lions.“We’re not anti-sea lion. We’re just for protecting a Pacific Northwest treasure: salmon, steelhead, sturgeon and other native fish species iconic to our region,” Herrera Beutler said. “My bill provides state and tribal managers with the tools they need to humanely manage the most problematic pinnipeds. Simply put, this measure cuts through the bureaucratic red tape, streamlines the permitting process, and allows states and tribes to rapidly respond to remove sea lions from areas they pose the most threat to salmon recovery.”Permits issued to tribes are exempt from environmental review requirements outlined in the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 for five years. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration can suspend the issuance of permits to tribes in five years if lethal takes are no longer needed to protect fish runs from sea lion predation.last_img read more

Revved Up Voter Registration as 2016 Elections approach

first_img 2015/2016 Electors list increases by less than 500 TCI Preliminary 2016/17 Electors List to be Publish Friday January 29, 2016 Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 28 Oct 2015 – The Elections Supervisor today confirmed that voter registration is booming. Dudley Lewis said to Magnetic Media that, “since the Government waived fees for documents to register to vote, there has been a drastic increase in the number of persons registering.” There had been concern expressed that the cost to get a National Status card was affecting voter registration and despite initially shunning that report, the PNP Administration eventually worked in Cabinet to see that fees were waived for first time voters. A National Status card is mandatory to be included on the voter register. The announcement was made in August; the waiver lasts until December 1 as voter registration ends on November 30. Up to March 2014, Mr. Lewis said that there were nearly 3,000 eligible voters still unregistered, the bulk of whom are youth.

Ray Sweeney said.The events that led to the police shooting began when a man in a black leather jacket confronted a 13-year-old girl near a trolley station while she was walking to school and threw a pocket knife at her, striking her with it.“The victim stated that the man had other large knives on his person and in his pockets,” Sweeney said.The terrified girl ran off, and the assailant gave chase, according to police. The teen managed to elude her pursuer by fleeing into a nearby shopping center and taking refuge in a sandwich shop, where she reported what had happened, Sweeney said.Police arrived a short time later to find Graham near the intersection of Fletcher Parkway and Amaya Drive, holding a large machete-style knife in his hand. The suspect ignored the officers’ commands to drop the weapon, instead running off in the direction of the strip mall where the victim had fled, according to Sweeney.Moments later he stopped, then allegedly turned toward one of the officers and charged at him with the machete raised above his head.“And the officer, unfortunately, in this situation had to fire his weapon to protect himself,” Sweeney said.The patrolman who shot the suspect was placed on paid desk duty pending completion of investigations in the case, as is routine in officer-involved shootings. His name was not immediately available.Graham was expected to be charged with assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer and criminal counts involving his alleged attack on and harassment of the schoolgirl.Though traumatized, the teen was physically unharmed, Sweeney told reporters.

Tug and barge owner to pay 22 million in BC fuel spill

first_imgThe Nathan E. Stewart grounded in the early morning hours of October 13, 2016. It spilled about 29,000 gallons of diesel and lubricants in the Seaforth Channel near Bella Bella, British Columbia. The tribe also seeks to bolster local spill response resources as articulated tug and barges regularly transit its traditional territory to supply fuel to Southeast Alaska. ATBs are tugs that push barges from behind and are increasingly common in the industry. The Heiltsuk Nation criticized the fine as “a drop in the bucket” for the company. On Tuesday, the U.S. company admitted in provincial court to environmental violations for harm to shorebirds and fish. The crewman at the helm hadn’t registered with pilotage authorities to be qualified to drive the ship in Canadian waters. “We sincerely regret this incident,” the company said. “And we have amended our operating procedures, training, auditing, promotion protocols and equipment to help reduce the potential for future accidents.” The Kirby Corporation’s articulated tug barge had completed fuel deliveries in Skagway and Ketchikan and was returning to Vancouver when the crewman on watch fell asleep. The First Nations tribe sued Kirby Corporation in 2018 alleging the spill destroyed its most productive clam beds and harmed fishing grounds and cultural sites. The civil case is ongoing. The owner of a tug and barge that grounded and spilled diesel in Canadian waters on its return from Southeast Alaska will pay about $2.2 million in fines. In a statement, the Kirby Corporation says it admits to the facts in the settlement and would comply with the ruling. The Texas-based company says it’s installed navigation alarms and enhanced crew training to help reduce the potential for future accidents. This photo taken October 17, 2016 shows booms deployed around the grounded Nathan E. Stewart four days after the spill off Athlone Island in B.C. (Photo from Provincial Court of British Columbia) “We both know this sentence does not represent true justice,” Marilyn Slett, the tribe’s president wrote in an open letter to the Kirby Corporation’s CEO. “True justice would mean paying for an environmental impact assessment, admitting civil liability, and working openly and honestly to address compensation and remediation for the harm caused by the spill.” Court filings show the $2.9 million Canadian penalty represents less than 1 percent of Kirby’s annual revenue last year.last_img read more
