Province Helps Aerospace and Defence Sector Compete Create Jobs

first_imgNova Scotia’s aerospace and defence companies and suppliers will gain a competitive edge thanks to a $10-million investment from the province. The province announced today, Oct. 12, that $10 million will be accessible to the industry for costs such as equipment, tooling and engineering. The funding will help create jobs and help companies become, and remain globally competitive. “From Protocase in Cape Breton, to IMP Group in Amherst, to Allendale Electronics in Lockeport, aerospace and defence is a growing sector with thousands of high-quality jobs across the province,” said Premier Darrell Dexter. “This investment will help our companies acquire major international contracts, keeping and creating jobs here in Nova Scotia.” The repayable loans will be linked to job creation, innovation and productivity targets. “Often the cost of doing business with large equipment manufacturers and subcontractors can be overwhelming for small- and medium-sized businesses,” said Steve Elder, president of the Aerospace and Defence Industries Association of Nova Scotia. “We wholeheartedly endorse this funding, which eases that burden and shows the province recognizes this high value and growing sector.” Nova Scotia is home to 40 per cent of Canada’s military assets, and the highest concentration of marine technology companies in North America. The aerospace and defence industries account for more than 6,000 good jobs across the province, and contribute about $600 million annually to our gross domestic product. “We are competing against companies worldwide, and are especially challenged by emerging economy countries such as Mexico, China and India, that have identified this business sector as strategic to their future industrial plans,” said Derek Kinsman, senior vice-president and chief operating officer at Composites Atlantic. “The funds identified today will assist Nova Scotia companies, such as Composites Atlantic, to make proactive and competitive proposals for new business.” This is a one-time allocation of funds through the Industrial Expansion Fund. The province recently announced that a new modern fund will be created to replace it. During the transition period to the new fund, all investment proposals will continue to be considered on their merits.last_img read more

Forces deployment a security measure no knowledge of change in constitutional provisions

first_imgSrinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik on Saturday conveyed to a National Conference delegation that the state has no knowledge of any changes in the Constitutional provisions and assured that the deployment of additional paramilitary forces was purely for security reasons. A statement released by the Raj Bhavan here said that the governor informed the delegation, led by former chief minister Omar Abdullah, that the security situation has developed in a manner which required immediate action. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details “There were credible inputs which were available to the security agencies regarding terrorist attacks on the Amarnath Yatra. There has been intensified shelling on the LoC by Pakistan which was responded to effectively by the Army,” the governor told the delegation. He said that a press conference was addressed by the Army and the state police in which they briefed the media about how they foiled terror groups’ sinister plans and also displayed weapons and ammunition they seized. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday “The seriousness of the threat required immediate action,” the governor said. Malik also said that the state “has no knowledge of any changes to constitutional provisions” and hence no panic should be created by unnecessarily linking this security matters with all kinds of other issues. “A pure security measure is being mixed up with issues with which it has no connection. That is the cause of the panic,” he told the delegation. It is in this security context that the government had issued an advisory Friday asking Yatris and tourists to return as soon as possible, he said. “These are a vulnerable group of people who do not know the area and are extremely vulnerable to a terrorist or a fidayeen attack. It is the responsibility of the state to provide security to all its citizens. Therefore, as a precautionary measure, Yatris and tourists have been asked to return. This is to ensure that no terrorist attack takes place on them,” the governor said. The delegation led by Abdullah apprised the Governor about the situation in the Kashmir valley after the government advisory asking Amarnath Yatris and tourists to return as soon as possible. They also mentioned about the panic created by people buying essential commodities hurriedly. The governor again said that the security to its citizens has to be provided by the state even at some inconvenience, which is being done. The governor requested the political leaders to ask their supporters to maintain calm and not believe exaggerated and unfounded rumours being circulated all around.last_img read more

David Beckham Applauds Publics Response To Typhoon Haiyan

first_imgUNICEF Goodwill Ambassador David Beckham made an emotional journey to the Philippines last week to meet children saved from the devastation of Typhoon Haiyan almost 100 days after the super storm landed.Beckham, 38, helped launch UNICEF’s emergency appeal when the typhoon hit in November, 2013 and today visited some of the worst affected areas of Tacloban, on Leyte Island.Thousands died in the disaster, and more than 1.7 million children were left homeless. Children affected by Typhoon Haiyan were at risk of getting sick, missing out on schooling and being exploited.During his two days in the Philippines, Beckham saw UNICEF’s vital emergency work for children, including visiting a child friendly space at one of Tacloban’s major evacuation points and a health centre to understand the importance of vaccinations and medical care for children when disaster strikes. The UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador also met children and families whose homes were completely wiped out by the typhoon.“As a father, it was deeply moving to meet children as young as two who were left with nothing but the clothes they were wearing when sea and storm water swept through their villages during the typhoon,” explained the former footballer, who has been a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador since 2005. “Some children I spoke to had lost parents or brothers and sisters in incredibly frightening circumstances. It was devastating to hear about.”Beckham visited Santo Nino School in Tanauan, where he took part in classes helping to distribute exercise books to children and played a game of football amongst the ruins of the original school. Thanks to UNICEF and its partners, some 420,000 children from the worst hit areas are now back in school, in makeshift and tent schools and using learning materials from school-in-a-box, early childhood and recreational kits.UNICEF is working with the Philippines government, local partners and communities to help them be even better prepared for future crises.“Children who were caught up in Haiyan are still traumatised by their experience and need ongoing assistance,” said Beckham. “UNICEF delivered life-saving supplies when the typhoon hit and they will now stay as long as they are needed and won’t let children down.”Across the globe, UNICEF is working round the clock to get aid to children in other emergencies – from Syria to the Central African Republic to South Sudan.“Here in the Philippines I have seen how public donations can have an incredible effect on children’s lives in an emergency,” explained Beckham. “Right now, millions of children in other parts of the world are in urgent need – whether it’s as a result of the Syria crisis or the conflict in South Sudan.“Even though some of these crises don’t make the headlines, we should not forget these children in desperate circumstances and I urge the public to do all they can, as they have done incredibly in the past, to help organizations like UNICEF go the extra mile for these kids every day.”Source:UNICEFlast_img read more

Football India U23 go down 01 to Qatar

first_imgDoha: The Indian under-23 football team couldn’t convert the chances that came its way and suffered a narrow 0-1 loss to Qatar in a preparatory match here ahead of the AFC Championship Qualifiers in Uzbekistan. Monday evening’s game was India’s first under the tutelage of new coach Derrick Pereira. Three of the starting XI players were from the Indian Arrows setup, while the likes of Dheeraj Singh Moirangthem, Anwar Ali, Rahul KP, and Komal Thatal were a part of the India U-17 World Cup squad two years back. Also Read – Dhoni, Paes spotted playing football togetherIndia got off the blocks early, with Mehtab Singh, Komal Thatal and Rahul KP coming close in the early exchanges. However, it was Narender Gahlot, who had the best chance in the first half, as he jumped higher than the rest to send a powerful header towards the goal. However, it was saved by Qatari keeper Yazan Naim Hussein. Despite the chances created by Pereira’s men, it was Qatar, which got the breakthrough close to the half time break, when a Salmin Atiq pass from the right was met by Amro Abdelfatah Surag, who made no mistake. Also Read – Andy Murray to make Grand Slam return at Australian OpenWhile a large part of the second half was played with both the teams trying to breach each other’s defences, Pereira made a number of changes.

Rahim Ali had the best chance of the match when he found himself in front of an open goal, just 12 yards away from his target. However, he scuffed his shot, as it flew over the bar in injury time.last_img read more

Businessman plans to burn body parts and organs to create energy

first_imgHe realised that plastic waste “was a headache for a lot of people” long before it became a  national talking point and spent 11 years working on a technology that would combust it in the cleanest way possible.With the help of a government loan and investments totalling several million pounds, he developed a heat exchange method that won a valuable US patent.One of the biggest problems, he believes, is that landfill sites are closing and no one knows what to do with the non recyclable waste.But his discovery that burning plastic alongside biomass creates a “pretty good fuel” led him to look at hospital waste.“Medical waste from theatres has a high level of plastic and a high level of biomass from things like paper tissues, gowns and nappies,” he said.“We get paid by the tonne to take the waste and believe we will be able to hugely undercut the companies currently being paid by the NHS to take this waste to landfill.”Although the permit application lists “body parts and organs including blood bags” among the materials to be incinerated, Mr Burns insisted “there are no arms and legs” and that at worst the waste might include the odd finger nail. If it gets the permit, the plant, the first of its kind, will burn 10.5 tonnes of hospital waste a day, creating enough thermal energy to power hundreds of homes, eventually employing 58 people.Longer term, he plans to open four more plants in the south of England that create fuel from kitchen waste, which would have similar properties if the individual components are not recycled separately and biomass is not recycled “willy nilly”.Medipower’s application to Lewes District Council for an environmental permit has attracted more than 200 objections, including one from local MEP Keith Taylor, but he insists that people misunderstand how the plant operates.“A lot of people look at it and think it’s an incinerator but don’t understand what it is,” he said.“That’s the biggest problem. It’s been a little bit hijacked which is sad.“People hear the word incinerator and then add body parts and get the wrong idea.“But this is our take-off point. We have a lead on the rest of the world when it comes to recycling and clean energy.” Mr Burns, a father-of-five, studied chemical engineering and spent years working for motor companies including Daewoo and Ford before branching out on his own. Medipower has two factories in Newhaven, East Sussex, one of which contains a prototype unit that has been in operation for three years combusting waste from the sea. A plan to produce electricity by burning “body parts and organs” has created uproar in a small Sussex town.The groundbreaking proposals to turn medical waste such as bandages, blood products and nappies into clean energy has confounded locals who fear the process will create poisonous air and noise pollution.But Michael Burns, 62, the local businessman behind the concept, insists that rather than being a modern-day Frankenstein, he has “a lead on the world” in creating clean energy from a specific combination of plastic and biomass.Rather than burning the waste in a traditional incinerator, his company, Medipower, plans to use a gasification process whereby it is heated to produce a synthetic gas which is ignited and converted into thermal energy.“We have tried to treat waste as a precious fuel like gasoline or diesel,” he said.“Who has got the nouse to challenge those large incineration companies and say look, there is better technology out there.“We want an invention that helps the environment, not kills it, and our technology is the best out there. It’s all about the emissions.”last_img read more

Connacht rugby star on the meningitis scare that rocked his family

first_imgCONNACHT RUGBY STAR George Naoupu has told TheScore.ie about the close call his sister-in-law had with meningitis and the efforts both he and his wife are making to raise awareness of the deadly disease.Sina Fanene was in university, in New Zealand, studying psychology when she was struck down with bacterial meningitis. Her family believed she was suffering a bad dose of the flu but, within 48 hours, she was admitted to intensive care, and fighting for her life, at Dunedin Hospital.Naoupu said, “Sina was into her sports and was a great rugby player. She was only 25 when it happened [in 2005] and was fit, young and healthy. It goes to show that meningitis can affect anyone. It was very tough on her family.”Sene Naoupu, George’s wife, takes up the tale. She commented, “Sina contracted bacterial meningitis, which affects the brain and the spinal cord. Doctors tried to trace it back and though they were not 100% on it, it appears that she got it through a shared water bottle while she was at rugby training.It took a couple of days before the symptoms came on but, when they did, she was rushed to hospital. By that stage she couldn’t talk. She spent 10 days in the I.C.U and, after that, was released to another hospital where she spent several months in rehabilitation. She had to learn how to read, write, speak and walk again.”Sene Naoupu says her sister is ’80 to 90%’ recovered and has got her life back on track in New Zealand. Both Sene and George, once the back-row secured a secure playing contract with Connacht, were determined to raise funds and awareness for ACT for Meningitis. The charity was set up in 2011 by Siobhán and Noel Carroll, who lost their daughter, Aoibhe, to meningitis in 2008, to highlight the signs and symptoms of the illness.Speaking to TheJournal in April of this year, Siobhán Carroll said: “We were really shocked about the lack of information out there about meningitis. We felt there was a major need to get the correct information out there to stop another family going through what we were going through.”The back-row declared, “As rugby players, our focus is often on that day’s training, the next game or targeting cups and climbing league standings. We often take for granted just how good we have it. Helping ACT for Meningitis is just a small thing I can do to give something back to a very worthy cause.”For more on ACT for Meningitis and their upcoming events, you can check out their Facebook page or website.Like rugby?

Rumble in Athens between Russian and Ukrainian sports fans

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram There had been warning signs about the arrival of Dynamo Kiev fans in Athens, and the followers of the Ukrainian football team cerainly lived up to them. The warning, of course, had come from an unexpected source, the anarchist group Rubicon, which issued a statement against the fans of the team, following Dynamo to Athens, where it faced AEK (the match ended in a draw), deeming them as fascists looking for trouble. Trouble did ensue, but not among the ‘fascists’ and the ‘anarchists’, but among Ukrainians and Russians. On Thursday afternoon, a group consisting of approximately fourty Dynamo Kiev fans, according to some reports, engaged in a fight in a cafeteria in the popular neighbourhood of Kolonaki. It all started with a heated exchange of words between the Ukrainian sportsfans and a group of Russian punters exiting the cafe. The incident escalated quickly with the two groups engaging in physical altercation, breaking tables and windows. The brawl came to an end when the police arrived, arresting 18 of those engaged in fight.News website ‘iefimerida’ posted a video of the incident that shook the upmarket neighbourhood.last_img read more

Les EtatsUnis interdisent limportation de certains serpents

first_imgLes Etats-Unis interdisent l’importation de certains serpentsLes Etats-Unis ont annoncé hier qu’ils interdisaient l’importation de certains serpents constricteurs tels que le python et l’anaconda. En effet, lorsque ces animaux s’enfuient ou sont relâchés dans la nature, ils menacent des écosystèmes naturels comme c’est le cas dans le Parc national des Everglades en Floride.Dans un rapport paru en 2009, les services fédéraux américains avaient estimé que quatre espèces de serpents constricteurs (le python birman, deux espèces de python africain et l’anaconda jaune) présentaient un risque élevé de se reproduire et de se propager à d’autres zones géographiques que le Parc national des Everglades (une vaste zone marécageuse). Mais aujourd’hui, “nous sommes parvenus à une plus grande compréhension du danger réel et immédiat présenté par le python de Birmanie et d’autres espèces envahissantes de serpents pour les Everglades et d’autres écosystèmes aux Etats-Unis”, a déclaré dans un communiqué le ministre américain à l’Intérieur, Ken Salazar.À lire aussiUn anaconda avale une énorme proie devant les caméras”Le python birman s’est déjà implanté dans le Parc national des Everglades  et nous devons faire tout notre possible pour contrer sa propagation et empêcher que les hommes ne contribuent à accroître la présence de ces serpents envahisseurs qui entraînent des dommages économiques et environnementaux”, a ajouté M. Salazar.Dans le “North Key Largo”, où ils ont établi résidence, ces pythons de Birmanie ont ainsi dévoré un grand nombre de rats des bois, tandis que d’autres races de pythons se sont attaquées aux cigognes. Or, ces deux espèces d’animaux sont en voie de disparition. C’est pour cette raison que le gouvernement américain vient d’annoncer l’interdiction d’importer sur le territoire toute espèce de serpent.Ajouté à cela, il sera d’ici peu impossible d'”exporter” l’un de ces serpents vers un autre Etat du pays sans obtenir au préalable un permis des autorités fédérales. Ainsi, les propriétaires de l’une de ces variétés de serpents ne seront pas affectés par la nouvelle interdiction et auront la possibilité de garder leur animal si la loi de leur Etat de résidence le permet. En revanche, ils ne pourront pas envoyer ou vendre leur serpent au-delà de la frontière de leur Etat. Le 18 janvier 2012 à 12:39 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Sarri didnt understand Giaccherini

first_imgEmanuele Giaccherini’s agent says there was “a tactical misunderstanding with Maurizio Sarri” at Napoli.Giaccherini spent two seasons at Napoli but only made 24 appearances before signing for Chievo Verona. His agent now blames tactical misunderstanding under Sarri for his poor displays.The versatile midfielder scored for Chievo against his former side Juventus on Saturday.“At Napoli he couldn’t show his full ability due to a tactical misunderstanding with Maurizio Sarri,” Giaccherini’s agent Furio Valcareggi explained on Radio Crc.

This 199 PS4 and SpiderMan Black Friday bundle has my bargainsense

first_imgI’m calling it — this is the best deal of this year’s Black Friday season, for gamers anyway. It’s amazing. It’s spectacular. Sony is selling a PlayStation 4 Slim with the new Spider-Man game for $199. That’s way too little money.The 1TB PS4 slim currently retails for $300, and that used to be the cost of the 500 GB one. So a $199 price for the improved, terabyte-capacity console would already be a great deal. But throwing Spider-Man in there? I’m not usually one to call out individual details for Black Friday (we’ll have a roundup), but this is ridiculous.That game came out just the other day, and has garnered absolute rave reviews; plenty of TechCrunch staff have lost dozens of hours to it, and expansions are on the way to suck even more time. It’s still going for full price most places, so that’s worth $50 or $60 right there.I own a PS4 already and I’m going to do this. The Slim update didn’t change a lot, but it’s quieter, easier to use (no more invisible buttons!), and of course considerably smaller. Getting it for $139 is a no-brainer. Comes with a controller too, obviously. Then I trade in the old one and pick up Tetris Effect on store credit!For comparison, both Microsoft and Nintendo are offering their basic consoles with a popular game bundled in for $299. Obviously Sony is looking to eat their lunch.Sure, you could also save your money for a PS4 Pro. But the benefits there, while I wouldn’t call them dubious by any means, aren’t really must-haves for most gamers. Red Dead Redemption 2 isn’t going to look that much better unless you’ve also got a 4K HDR setup and all that jazz. If you’re super into the AAA games and best possible graphics, by all means go for it, but for the rest of us who’d rather buy another 4 or 5 games with the money we saved? Slim it is.There’s also a PSVR bundle for $200 and controllers are cheaper too. But the Slim is obviously the centerpiece here. You’ll have to go to “participating retailers” and probably fight people like me to get the deal, which goes live on November 18 like all the others.last_img read more

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Keim pointed to a group of new players — Gabbert, safety Budda Baker and tight end Ricky Seals-Jones — playing well, but also wondered why receivers that have been relied on in the past haven’t delivered with any regularity in 2017.“We have some other receivers that have done a lot of things for us in the past, and for one reason or another, those guys aren’t stepping up and answering the bell,” Keim said. “That’s what’s disappointing to me and we’ll continue to try and put the best players out there that we can.”The Cardinals return home to host the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium. – / 28 35 Comments   Share   The issue led head coach Bruce Arians to vent his frustration Sunday.“We’ll be looking at some different receivers next week,” he said.Now, it’s up to general manager Steve Keim to find some options that can help Arizona’s struggling receiving corps with six games left in the season.“We’ve been looking at wide receivers in a lot of different scenarios,” Keim told Doug & Wolf Monday on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station. “Whether it’s guys on practice squads that we could potentially poach or guys that are off the street.“Either way, we have to try to do the best we can to put some players on the field that are going to make the plays when given an opportunity.”In the fourth quarter Sunday, the Cardinals faced a 2nd-and-6 from their own 30-yard line. Gabbert threw a perfect sideline pass to J.J. Nelson that would have gained 15 yards, but instead, it bounced off the receiver’s chest, bringing up a third down. On third down, Gabbert connected with John Brown, but the receiver cut his route from the slot short of the line to gain, which brought up a 4th-and-1.Arians decided to go for it, even though the Cardinals only trailed by three and there was over six minutes remaining. Adrian Peterson’s run lost a yard and Arizona turned it over on downs. Houston scored on the next play to ice the game.

John Brown, Jaron Brown, J.J. Nelson and Brittan Golden saw a total of 13 throws come their way. Those targets yielded only five catches for 54 yards.
