Wildlife Habitat Conservation Grants Announced

first_imgGroups delivering conservation education, promoting sustainable hunting practises and studying the pressures affecting wildlife populations are receiving grants from the Habitat Conservation Fund. Lands and Forestry Minister Iain Rankin announced today, July 27, that 21 grants totalling $230,000 were awarded to ten community groups, wildlife associations and academic institutions working to protect wildlife habitats in Nova Scotia. “The Habitat Conservation Fund supports many important wildlife and habitat education, research and ecosystem stewardship projects each year,” said Mr. Rankin. “These grants further enhance protection efforts and appreciation of our province’s biodiversity.” The Habitat Conservation Fund is the result of the $5.15 wildlife habitat stamp that is required to hunt, trap or snare in Nova Scotia. “Hunters and trappers contribute directly to the Habitat Conservation Fund as part of ongoing efforts to address sustainability of wildlife and wildlife habitat in Nova Scotia,” said Travis McLeod, president of the Nova Scotia Federation of Hunters and Anglers. “The fund has helped leverage more than a million dollars for projects concerned with wildlife and habitat sustainability.” Since 2000, the fund has awarded about $2.7 million to support wildlife and habitat conservation in the province. Requests for project funding are reviewed by a panel of hunting, naturalist and academic associations. “Hunters and trappers make significant contributions to support wildlife and habitats each time a wildlife habitat stamp is bought,” said Mr. Rankin.

Lightly felt earthquake reported in Alberta fracking zone

‘Lightly felt’ earthquake reported in Alberta fracking zone by The Canadian Press Posted Jan 12, 2016 12:57 pm MDT Last Updated Jan 13, 2016 at 7:22 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FOX CREEK, Alta. – An energy company has stopped operating in a part of Alberta subject to heavy hydraulic fracking after the province’s energy regulator reported the area’s largest earthquake in more than a year.“They have ceased operations and will not be able to resume until we have approved their mitigation plans,” Carrie Rosa of the Alberta Energy Regulator said Tuesday.No injury or damage was reported from the quake, which occurred about 35 kilometres west of Fox Creek.Rosa said final readings of the quake’s strength registered 4.8 on the Richter scale, which rates tremblors of that magnitude at the top of the “light” classification. They’re likely to be felt by most people in the area and may cause noticeable shaking and rattling of indoor objects.Some residents did feel the quake, said Fox Creek operations manager Roy Dell.“It felt like a large truck driving by,” he said. “Some saw pictures shake on the wall. The Town of Fox Creek is disappointed to hear of another seismic event.”Rosa said Repsol Oil and Gas won’t be able to resume operations until the regulator has approved its mitigation plans.“We have to find out what was occurring at the time the seismic event happened,” she said. “We have investigators on the way to the site.”Concerns about seismic activity in the Fox Creek area began in December 2014 when a series of 18 earthquakes between 2.7 and 3.7 in magnitude rumbled through. In January 2015, several shakers were recorded between magnitudes of 2.4 and 4.4.The regulator responded in February by imposing new rules for the so-called Duvernay play near town.“The order comes after several seismic events — possibly related to hydraulic fracturing — were recorded in the Fox Creek area,” the regulator said in a news release at the time.Under the rules, companies must consider the likelihood of resulting earthquakes before starting to frack. Any seismic events greater than 4.0 on the Richter scale require an operator to shut down and notify the regulator. Quakes between 2.0 and 4.0 don’t prompt a shutdown, but an operator must still inform the regulator. No activity is required for anything less than 2.0.The rules also require closer monitoring of seismic activity.Alberta Premier Rachel Notley said she wants the regulator to speed up a review the NDP government has asked for into seismic activity in the area.“My officials have been in touch with the AER to find out exactly what the situation is and we’re waiting to get more details,” Notley said in Edmonton.“The AER has been engaged in a review of fracking, in particular as it relates to this issue, and I’ll be asking them to speed that review … to come up with some recommendations that we can consider sooner than later.“What I’d like to see first of all is a report on what the evidence shows is the relationship between fracking and the seismic activity that we’ve observed up in Fox Creek.”The regulator’s database shows there have been 366 seismic events in the region since January 2015.— By Bob Weber in Edmonton.

UN experts urge Bahrain to release prominent human rights defender

“The detention and decision to bring charges against Ms. Al-Khawaja is deeply concerning. In absence of credible evidence, the Government of Bahrain should take immediate steps to release her,” the experts said in a news release. Ms. Al-Khawaja is the co-director of the Gulf Centre for Human Rights. Her father, a former president and co-founder of the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights, Abdulhadi Abdulla Hubail al-Khawaja, has been in detention since 2011. Ms. Al-Khawaja was detained at Bahrain International Airport while travelling to visit her father in prison. She is currently being held at a women’s prison on charges of assaulting a police officer pending investigation. Reports say her Danish passport has been confiscated and that she has been denied access to a lawyer. “The detention of Ms. Al-Khawaja is another patent measure of retaliation against individuals who advocate for human rights in the country,” the human rights experts said. They expressed their concern at the apparent continued harassment and imprisonment of individuals exercising their legitimate rights to freedom of opinion and expression in Bahrain.“Detention of civil society members who seek to contribute to the promotion and protection of human rights is unacceptable,” the experts noted. “Defenders play a key role in holding States to account for the implementation of their human rights obligations, including at the international level. Their legitimate work should be fully respected.” Special Rapporteur on human rights defenders Michel Forst expressed concern at the human rights violations faced by defenders in Bahrain, recalling that the Government had accepted recommendations to abandon restrictions on rights defenders. “We call upon the Government of Bahrain to immediately implement the recommendations of the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry and the recommendations put forward during the country’s Universal Periodic Review to ensure that human rights defenders are protected and able to carry out their peaceful and legitimate work free of intimidation or persecution,” the experts urged. Bahrain has also postponed the last two visits of the Special Rapporteur on torture, which were considered as an effective cancellation. The experts called on the Government to commit to and cooperate with all planned visits to the country. Independent experts are appointed by the UN Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a country situation or a specific human rights theme. The positions are honorary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work. read more

Athens air pollution found at 15 times above EU alert level

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The concentration of air pollutants in Athens have reached as much as 15 times the level recommended by the European Union over the past two months due to the increased use of fireplaces and wood stoves, research by experts from several Greek universities has shown.Researchers measured the levels of fine particulate air pollution (PM 2.5) in the capital’s ambient air between January 10 and February 10 and registered a high of 300 mg/m3. The target value recommended by the EU is 20 mg/m3. This directive is to pass into EU law in 2015.Experts found that roughly 80 per cent of the pollution was being caused by wood fires and pointed to the fact that only a relatively mild winter, with temperatures being on average 3.5 Celsius higher than last year, prevented worse pollution.Many Greeks turned to fireplaces for warmth this winter after heating oil costs shot up due to a steep rise in consumption tax.Source: Kathimerini.last_img read more

9Foot Anaconda Found After Slithering Away From Owners Property

first_img Caught on Camera: Copperhead Snakes Mate on Bike TrailRare Two-Headed Timber Rattlesnake Spotted in New Jersey Stay on target “Bertha slithered out from under the dash…The owner felt tugging on the seat belt. When he looked down, there was Bertha,” the Suffolk County SPCA said in a press statement to CBS New York. “She was well hidden under the dash even though the van was thoroughly searched.”Even though the reptile was non-venomous, the Suffolk County SPCA warned people that “it may bite if frightened” and that “it is a constrictor,” meaning that it will tightly squeeze and wrap around its prey. Officials also said no one should approach snakes and they should call the Suffolk County SPCA or Southampton Police Department if they discover any of these creatures near their homes.Snakes are finding themselves in a lot of cars lately: Earlier this week, an enormous 15-foot snake was caught slithering out of a parked vehicle after its drunk owner fell asleep. Colorado police officers were able to retrieve the snake, which tried to climb out of a window and get onto the roof for some air. A 9-foot anaconda on-the-loose was recently found after it left its owner’s property in Hampton Bays, New York.According to the Suffolk County SPCA, the massive snake, named Bertha, was finally tracked down on Tuesday after a rigorous search throughout the community, CBS New York reported. The Suffolk County SPCA announced that the serpent, which was missing for a couple of hours, was “recovered” after its owner spotted it climbing out of their car dashboard.

Im really proud of myself – Bernardo

first_imgBrighton defender Bernardo says he’s proud of his man-of-the-match performance in the 2-1 defeat to Chelsea at the Amex Stadium on Sunday.Bernardo received plaudits for his stellar display at left back on Sunday and was pleased to have tested himself against a talented Chelsea team.“It’s a really nice thing because the fans are wonderful and it’s good to see them recognize my hard work, especially against a team like Chelsea,” Bernardo told the club’s website.“I’m pleased that I have a good level and can prove myself against hard opponents. I’m really proud of myself.“It was difficult [facing Chelsea’s front three], but that’s why I came to this league. I wanted to prove that I’m a player capable of playing against such players and I feel like I did a good job.”After going two goals behind in the first half, Brighton fought hard and pulled a goal back in the second half, but couldn’t find the equalizer.“It was a bit frustrating, as we showed that we could’ve got a result, especially after our performance in the second half,” he said reflecting on the game.“Our goal changed the game, and that’s what the gaffer said to us at half-time. A 2-0 scoreline looks like a big scoreline, but if you score, then the opponent has all the pressure. We got the first goal and tried to get a second, but we didn’t manage it.“The first half overall wasn’t very good and we made too many mistakes. The gaffer then spoke to us and we came out in the second half with a different mentality and understood that we could change the game. At least we left the pitch leaving a good impression of ourselves.”last_img read more

first_imgKolkata: Responding to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s direction, the Bengal Chemist and Druggist Association (BCDA) is not taking part in the nationwide strike on September 28 against the e-pharmacy draft Bill proposed by the Centre.According to a senior official of the BCDA, there will be no shut down of medicine shops in the state. The retail and wholesale supply of medicines will remain unaffected in the state as medicine stockists and dealers have agreed not to go on strike, as it would have an adverse effect on the people. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeSankha Roychoudhury, a senior official of the BCDA, said: “The Chief Minister had urged us not to take part in the nationwide strike against e-pharmacy draft Bill of the Centre. Hence, we have decided to organise rallies as a token of protest. We may submit a deputation to the Governor in this regard mentioning the ill-effects of the proposed Bill. All the medicine shops across the state will remain open on that day.” If the proposed Bill is implemented, people can directly buy medicines from the manufacturers through various online shopping portals. As a result, people, particularly the youths can buy medicines which are not sold in the market without a prescription.

Reviving Kutiyattam

first_imgSahapedia, the online encyclopaedia on Indian culture and history, will organise a unique six-day Kutiyattam festival in the national capital, in a bid to encourage the traditional performing art form of Kerala that showcases a stylistic presentation of Sanskrit literary masterpieces on the stage.The festival will be held from August 16-21 at The Fountain Lawns of India International Centre (IIC). The Nepathya group from Kerala will perform full-scale, unabridged masterpiece ‘Surpanakhankam’, from Saktibhadra’s classical Sanskrit play – ‘Ascharyachudamani’ that is based on the Ramayana. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfSahapedia is organising the spectacular theatrical presentation in collaboration with Seher – the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies (CSDS) and India International Centre (IIC) in an extremely rare event.Professor David Shulman, a renowned Indian Studies scholar and the Renee Lang, Professor of Humanistic Studies at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, will introduce the performance to the audience on August 16 at 6:15 pm. This spectacular dance performance will feature 12 performers, led by Margi Madhu and Dr Indu G who have mastered their craft through rigorous training and a string of spell binding performances. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveSet up in 1998, Nepathya, a centre for excellence in Kutiyattam, has been operating in the central Kerala village of Muzhikkulam, a major site for this performance art form where it is taught, performed and preserved in a traditional format.”Kutiyattam is a rare tradition battling for survival, especially for the opportunity to perform full-scale, unabridged masterpieces spread out over several nights. It is now rare to make available its brilliance, beauty and complexity in full performances to audiences outside of Kerala. Even in Kerala itself, such complete performances are now rare,” said Dr Sudha Gopalakrishnan, Executive Director, Sahapedia. Considered to be one of India’s oldest surviving theatrical traditions and the only surviving art form that uses dramas from ancient Sanskrit theatre, Kutiyattam is recognised by UNESCO as a ‘Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity’. The Kutiyattam theatre represents a synthesis of Sanskrit classicism and the local traditions of Kerala. Traditionally, Kutiyattam was performed by Chakyars (a sub-caste of Kerala Hindus) and by Nangyaramma (women of the Ambalavasi Nambiar caste) mostly within temple precincts, but in contemporary times, it has been performed by people of all communities.’Surpanakhankam’ is a dramatic retelling of the interaction of Surpanakha, the sister of Lanka’s demon-king Ravana, with Rama and Lakshmana, and the latter’s subsequent rejection of her overtures during their exile in the forest. On the last day, the episode of ‘Ninam’ (bloodbath), when Surpanakha enters with her slashed blood-splattered nose and waling loudly, is both horrifying and spectacular.last_img read more

This results in a radiation dose savings of 21 percent as the more efficient imaging lowers the radiation exposure to the patient.Another upgrade, Real Time Beat Control, calculates the running real time average of the heart rate to predict the next heart beat for a more accurately timed scan. Important for patients with arrhythmias, this feature ensures better accuracy and improves image quality while reducing repetitive exams.New optimized timing of SUREStart can accurately determine contrast uptake time for a more accurate image. The upgraded SUREStart makes the transition from bolus chase to cardiac scanning virtually seamless. This feature creates better contrast timing, improves image quality and lowers contrast dose.The Aquilion ONE can image up to 16 cm of anatomy in one rotation using 320 ultra high-resolution 0.5 mm detector elements impacting the diagnosis of patients who present with chest pain. With the new wide volume cardiac protocol (works-in-progress) for the Aquilion ONE, clinicians can image the entire heart, lungs and aorta in just two rotations. This may help rule out cardiac and lung issues for patients with chest pain with high-quality images at low radiation doses. Using traditional 64-detector row CT systems, scanning this entire area could take up to 20 to 30 X-ray rotations. Designed for ECG-gated CT imaging, Toshiba’s new wide volume technology is allowing clinicians to image an even greater area in fewer rotations and far less radiation dose.For more information: www.medical.toshiba.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content Video Player is loading.Mark Ibrahim explains what EPs need from CT imagingPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 5:23Loaded: 3.08%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -5:23 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

7 ideas for generating Millennial leads from youth travel expert Contiki

first_img Travelweek Group << Previous PostNext Post >> Tags: Contiki, Young Traveller Posted by TORONTO — They’re the biggest demographic the world has ever seen, and while they grew up with the Internet, they’re seeking out travel agent services in record numbers. Millennials are an opportunity not to be missed – but how do you get the leads?Youth travel specialist Contiki offers up 7 tips for connecting with and generating booking from Millennial travellers – through social media, of course – in its latest outreach to the trade, ‘The Young Traveller’s Report by Contiki’.From talking to talk to hashtags to Throwback Thursdays, here are 7 sales strategies straight from the #NoRegrets experts…1. KNOW YOUR AUDIENCEWhile the term ‘millennial’ is often applied to everyone in this generation, there are two different groups, notes Contiki. Gen Y are those born before 1994 and Gen Z, those born after 1995. Each group is different from one another from the way they consume information to travel preferences. Gen Y is typically more on Facebook and Twitter, while Gen Z is on Instagram and Snapchat – or whatever new social media platform is available.2. TALK THE TALKMillennials are extremely Internet-savvy – after all, Gen Y came of age with the Internet, while Gen Z has no concept of a world without the web. Social media especially is key. Even if you’re not the most socially inclined, it’s important to build your social media following and ‘talk the talk’ – it’s all about authenticity, because young travellers can smell a sales message from a mile away.More news:  War of words between Transat, Group Mach ramps up3. TRAVEL ON TWITTERAlways use #hashtags! They allow you to see conversations with a particular topic to engage. For example: #travel #traveltuesday #ttot (travel talk on Twitter) are all great places to start. Remember, don’t put any punctuation, symbols or spaces in the hashtag and use capital letters to emphasize multiple word hashtags such as #TravelToEurope. Emojis are always a great way to catch people’s attention and every millennial uses them – you’ll definitely be talking the talk.4. #WEGOTYOUWhen talking to young clients on any social media platform, Contiki advises agents to make sure to use beautiful and inspiring images such as epic shots of the Swiss Alps and YouTube videos. Millennials are visual creatures and are more impacted by a beautiful shot than words. Agents can access ready-to-use Contiki images via ContikiU.5. THROWBACK THURSDAYSCreate a content calendar and plan ahead. Theme each day such as #TBT (Throwback Thursday) by sharing an old travel picture with a fun fact, or posting #traveldeals on a Monday. This will make your social media planning that much easier and more organized, says Contiki.More news:  CIE Tours launches first-ever River Cruise Collection6. SHARE THE LOVE“Now you need an audience for all of your catchy posts,” says the company. Invite friends and clients to your Facebook page and to follow you on Instagram and Twitter. “Go ahead and like other people’s pages or follow those with a significant following – they’ll be more likely to share the love back to you.” A surefire way to attract followers, says Contiki: host contests on your accounts with prizes. “Prizing doesn’t need to be extravagant – branded merchandise works just as well. You’d be surprised of how many people will clamor for free items!”7. INCENTIVES WORKContiki advises agents to set themselves apart by adding a gift with purchase, “or highlight why a client should book with you versus someone else.” Talk about what you can offer and why a young traveller should trust you with their vacations over booking it themselves.Download the article here.center_img Thursday, November 15, 2018 Share 7 ideas for generating Millennial leads, from youth travel expert Contikilast_img read more
