Cities around the world flip the switch to mark Earth Hour

There needs to also be individual lifestyle changes as well,” says Dr. Dave Atkinson, an arctic ecologist at Ryerson University.“We can’t continue to do the things the way we’ve been doing them and burning the amount of carbon that we have.

Syria UN agency says aid deliveries to Palestinian refugee camp remain suspended

Unable for the tenth straight day to deliver life-saving aid to thousands of Palestinian refugees trapped in a camp near Damascus, the United Nations agency charged with ensuring their well-being is again appealing strongly to the parties to allow in desperately needed food, medicines and other humanitarian assistance to the war-weary civilians.“There has been no change in the situation,” said Christopher Gunness, spokesperson for the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), lamenting that the agency’s food distribution inside Yarmouk camp, south of crisis-torn Syria’s capital, remained on hold for the tenth consecutive day. While no UNRWA staff visited the camp today, Mr. Gunness said the agency remains hopeful that unrestricted humanitarian access to the civilian population inside Yarmouk will be granted and that its food distribution will resume without further delay. UNRWA has not had access to the camp since fighting broke out late at night on 7 February, forcing the agency to temporarily suspend its activities. A food parcel lasts an average family about 10 days, so provisions are now running out, Mr. Gunness explained earlier, adding that, “as malnutrition…is reportedly widespread, the fate particularly of women and children is of growing concern.” He said today that UNRWA “strongly appeals” to the authorities and concerned parties to consider the immense needs of the civilian population in Yarmouk and allow and facilitate the agency’s distribution of food, medicines and other humanitarian assistance. Meanwhile, UNRWA has been advised that the agreement reached between authorities and armed groups inside Yarmouk needs time to be fully implemented. However, the agency appealed to all parties to give the utmost priority to addressing the protracted suffering of civilians inside the camp. “Civilians in Yarmouk have already suffered greatly and should not have to endure further anguish. A resumption of UNRWA’s humanitarian operations inside Yarmouk is a matter of the greatest urgency,” Mr. Gunness said. Before this latest disruption, UNRWA was able to distribute more than 6,500 food parcels, 10,000 polio vaccines and a range of other medical supplies since 18 January, when, after months of negotiations with the parties, its access to the area was restored for the first time since September. Prior to the armed conflict in Syria, which began in March 2011, Yarmouk – a suburb just south of Damascus – was home to over 160,000 Palestine refugees. Since December 2012, fighting has caused at least 140,000 Palestine refugees to flee their homes in Yarmouk, as armed opposition groups established a presence in the area, with Government forces controlling the periphery. read more

…And uranium in 2017

first_imgThe uranium price dropped to 12-year lows in October 2016. Investing News Network (INN), looking ahead, found some companies in the sector have higher hopes for what’s in store in 2017.INN notes that “without a doubt, 2016 was an ugly year for the uranium industry as its price dropped to 12-year lows of $18.25/lb in October. Since then, the price has made a slight recovery to $18.75/lb – although that’s still almost half of what it was at the end of 2015, at $36/lb. To that end, uranium companies in the sector have unsurprisingly been impacted by the resource’s rock-bottom prices, with some saying things can’t really get much worse from here.“Of course, the uranium price isn’t the only contributing factor in the industry throughout 2016.”Below, Ted O’Connor, CEO of Plateau Uranium, Craig Parry, CEO of IsoEnergy and George Glasier, Director, President and CEO of Western Uranium shared their thoughts with INN on the 2016 uranium market and gave their uranium outlook 2017. In Peru, Plateau has one of the largest undeveloped uranium projects in the world, shown in the picture.Asked, at the end of last year (2015), what did you expect from 2016, O’Connor responded: “We had decent hopes for a recovery in uranium market albeit measured.”Parry: “The resource sector had been in the worst downturn seen in decades at the end of 2015, and we were seeing classic bottom of market events: capitulation of whole sectors; majors selling large assets cheaply; generalists funds leaving the sector; commodity prices at multi-year lows. So we knew we were somewhere near the bottom of the cycle. Being a cyclical business, where low prices are the best cure for low prices, we thought a bounce in the industry wouldn’t be far off.”Glasier: “We expected the spot price of uranium to be firmer than it is today. We could not anticipate the aggressive selling of byproduct produced material from the majors. We also thought excess uranium inventories would have diminished.”INN: What had the biggest impact on your commodity in 2016?O’Connor: “The spot price erosion was primarily due to sellers desperation and underfeeding. Sellers desperate for cash including traders unwinding positions and producers needing to pay their bills with sellers insensitive to price like the US DOE dumping some of their uranium stockpiles to fund legacy clean-up operations. Underfeeding where uranium enrichment suppliers become essentially uranium producers was also an issue because the demand for enrichment services is also less than capacity with most of Japan’s reactors not operating.”Parry: “The continued weakness in the spot uranium price has been a significant weight on the sector. The spot price is a loud but largely irrelevant data point. However the impact has been that few long term contracts have been written and the spot price is being factored into those negotiations with producers. This has in turn seen significant production cuts both undertaken and planned.”Glasier: “Supply.”INN: What was the highlight of 2016 for you?O’Connor: “For Plateau Uranium, the highlight of 2016 was the completion of our PEA early in the year. The PEA shows we have a project in Peru with lowest quartile uranium production cost potential ($17.38/lb U3O8). We also have lithium resources in the same rocks that will add even more value to the already great uranium story.”Parry: “There have been a few. We know equities lead the commodity price in any return to bullish market conditions and so the lift in equity prices in November 2016 (Cameco up 40%; NexGen 60%) has been encouraging. I was also very pleased to establish IsoEnergy, which we spun out of NexGen Energy.“ We raised over $11 million in tough market conditions, built a small but excellent team and have started work on exploring our great portfolio of properties in the eastern Athabasca. Also personally being involved in NexGen as a director the highlights have been numerous. The results the team there has delivered from its Rook I property in the southwest Athabasca Basin are exceptional. The maiden resource from Arrow was the largest ever in the Basin and continued drill results support my view that this is one of the greatest ore bodies ever discovered and will go on to be one of the highest margin mines ever built. And to cap things off the NexGen team has made a couple of more discoveries in the area.”Glasier: “The highlight of 2016 for the uranium sector was the surprisingly low uranium price. The highlight for Western Uranium was the steady forward movement towards near term production.INN: What do you expect for the uranium market in 2017?O’Connor: “For uranium, you can sense the bottom is here. No producers can make money at current spot uranium price and demand will continue to increase due to new reactor builds and more re-starts expected in Japan. Existing and future producers are starting to contract again, at above $40/lb prices, which is well above both the published spot, and term uranium prices.”Parry: “Leading indicators are pointing to a resurgent bull market. The downturn we have been through has seen little invested in new supply and less in exploration than should have been and this coupled with an improving global outlook for business growth suggests to me that we may be about to enter a bull market that may put the last one in the shade.”Glasier: “A better market [under a Trump presidency].”INN: What is your prediction for the uranium price in 2017?O’Connor: “Uranium prices will improve due to attrition on the supply side with higher cost uranium operations being shuttered and high cost uranium projects being deferred. The uranium price has to increase to incentivize the future production required necessary to meet the increasing demand for uranium.”Parry: “I think based on the closure of uranium mines and reductions in supply that we will see a strong rebound in spot prices. That said the long-term contracts that are being written now are double the current spot price so we are already seeing the future and where things will head!”Glasier: “That it will go up 20% [its current price is $18.75/lb].”INN: What excites you the most about 2017?O’Connor: “When uranium prices increase, it usually happens extremely quickly and some say ‘violently’. We are living through one of the worst uranium markets ever, and survivors like Plateau Uranium should thrive as the market turns positive. Until then, Plateau continues to sensibly push on in Peru: advancing permitting, drilling, improving our metallurgical understanding and the potential value lithium co-production can bring to the project.”Parry: “Certainly the end to the 2012-2016 bear market will be worth celebrating. Very much looking forward to getting in and drilling our great targets at IsoEnergy. Also eagerly awaiting NexGen’s second resource announcement.”Glasier: “For the uranium sector, the 2017 excitement is coming from the US where it is believed the newly elected Trump administration will be much more nuclear power friendly. The market is now acknowledging that with some simple changes to the laws, the US nuclear power industry can undergo a renaissance without compromising safety. Also, Lamar Alexander is leading the Appropriations Subcommittee in Congress to support the nuclear industry. This will have most favourable effects on the USA uranium companies. For Western Uranium in 2017, the company is preparing the assets for production. Many of the mines Western Uranium owns have been past producing mines so the CAPEX to restart production is much lower.”last_img read more

GoGo Grandparent is Uber for old people

first_imgHey, you there! Yes, you… the cantankerous old coot chasing Pokemon Go players off his front lawn. The old man yelling at cloud computing. Someone finally built you a ride hailing app you won’t shake your fist at.It’s called GoGo Grandparent, and they refer to themselves as “the Uber for folks who don’t like smartphones.” I know what you’re thinking. “Uber for folks who don’t like smartphones? Isn’t that a cab company?” Based on GGG’s tagline you might assume that, but it’s a bit more sophisticated than calling a dispatcher.You can set up custom locations in their system so that when you call in you simply press one of your pre-defined choices to hail a ride. Punch 1 to get a car to your house. Punch 4 to tell GoGo Grandparent that you want to be shuttled over to the mall for your morning power walk with the gang.Ready to head home? Just press 2 to tell them to come get you wherever they dropped you off last — super handy if you can’t remember what the actual name is. You can set up a recurring schedule for rides. Talk about convenient!GGG is slowly building up steam, with roughly 3900 rides provided so far. They’ve been shuttling the smartphone-averse to exciting destinations like Norm’s Diner, Balboa Park, and the senior center according to the crawl on their website.Worried that grandma or grandpa might end up in some unsavory part of town, gambling with other elderly folks in the back of a deli or harassing helpless young skateboarders at the park?

TEMPE Ariz — Cardinals coaches and teammates bea

first_imgTEMPE, Ariz. — Cardinals coaches and teammates beamed of rookie Josh Rosen’s confidence when rookie minicamp opened all those months ago. That word describing the young quarterback’s command of the huddle resurfaced again Wednesday after Arizona’s first practice with the No. 10 overall pick now leading the offense as the starting quarterback.The only question is whether Rosen’s best quality is that confidence. He seems to think that it’s a necessary, mandatory trait. What matters more is whether he knows which checks to make and where to throw the ball. Top Stories 3 Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “The confidence he has — very humble, but very confident in his ability.”Rosen, of course, set himself up for this moment through preparing as a starting quarterback should. But he also helped to build a narrative that includes the three quarterbacks who were selected ahead of him in the 2018 NFL Draft: Cleveland’s Baker Mayfield, New York’s Sam Darnold and Buffalo’s Josh Allen.On draft night, Rosen infamously said the nine players picked before him were mistakes. He chopped that list down to three the next day, including only the quarterbacks selected ahead of him.All three made their NFL debuts before Rosen, and now that they are their teams’ respective starters, it’s game on.“We’ll see how it all turns out,” Rosen said. “Hopefully I can back up all of what I said.”EXTRA POINTS— Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring), Robert Nkemdiche (knee), Corey Peters (elbow) and Andre Smith (elbow) were among the Cardinals who did not practice in full on Wednesday. Smith remains day-to-day, though Wilks remained optimistic about the other three players who all played through injuries on Sunday.— Wilks used practice to show the Cardinals clips of successful plays in games and similar plays from practices. The point? To show them that their work throughout the week will translate to Sundays. Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen (3) tries to elude Chicago Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan (59) during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018, in Glendale, Ariz. The Bears defeated the Cardinals 16-14. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) But yeah, he’s confident in that, too.“I think my play on the field more carries than anything else,” Rosen said Wednesday as Arizona prepares to host the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. “I think a lot of the times, attitude and confidence and persistence … I think that’s good in sort of times when things aren’t going too great, like this. I mean, at least fake it ’til you make it.Related LinksCardinals view Josh Rosen’s outspoken personality as a plusRookie Josh Rosen will be the ninth Cardinals starting QB since 2012Josh Rosen brings intrigue and new optimism to struggling Cardinals“For the most part, for us, how much confidence you have or not, if you’re not throwing the ball to the right receiver and getting to the right run play, doesn’t matter.”Rosen showed confidence and command of Arizona’s offense in his brief debut Sunday in a 16-14 loss to the Chicago Bears, according to Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks. He completed 4-of-7 passes for 36 yards but threw an interception on a key fourth-down play.He connected with three different receivers, twice throwing to second-round draft pick and rookie receiver Christian Kirk, a long-time friend.Maybe Kirk has seen Rosen’s abilities in live game action more than anyone else on the Cardinals roster. At Texas A&M, Kirk played against Rosen twice.center_img Two years ago, UCLA fell in the raucous Kyle Field, 31-24, and Rosen got roughed up against a pass-rush led by eventual No. 1 pick Myles Garrett. Rosen threw for 343 yards with three picks to one touchdown, plus fumbled twice (neither was lost).Last season, UCLA fell behind 44-10 midway through the third quarter in Los Angeles before Rosen threw four fourth-quarter touchdowns to cap a 35-0 run to close the game.Rosen finished that game having completed 35-of-59 passes for 491 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions.“I definitely know what type of guy he is in those moments,” Kirk said.Indeed, the NFL is a different game. Arizona is cognizant that putting too much on the rookie is a danger, and Wilks said he wanted Rosen to, simply, have fun playing football.“We threw a lot at him from the standpoint of the install. Great job at the line of scrimmage checking and getting us in the right call from the standpoint of protections with the blitzes. I thought he looked good today,” Wilks said. “He has a lot of confidence. You saw that when he went into the game this past week. You see it each and every day that he’s out there, particularly today.

Single dads left out of paternity leave benefit

first_imgTWO weeks into its introduction, cracks have appeared in a new law that affords some benefits to fathers as part of paternity leave, with state officials defending the provisions of the law and social groups saying the new law does not go far enough, while single fathers are left out of the picture altogether.A senior government official defended on Friday the provision of the law which stipulates that only married men or those who have a co-habitation agreement are eligible for the paternity leave benefit.Following media reports of scores of complaints from unmarried fathers who found that they did not qualify for the paternity leave and of general confusion as to who is a beneficiary, the permanent secretary of the labour ministry, Andreas Assiotis, said that it is very clear on the application forms that the benefit allowance concerns only married fathers.“It is an allowance paid by the social insurance fund. All such allowances concern married couples,” Assiotis told the Cyprus Mail.He added that the labour ministry had not received any official complaints concerning the paternity leave so far. The new law, which was passed by parliament last month and kicked off on August 1, allows working fathers of newborns to file for 15 days of paid paternity leave.The office of the Commissioner for Gender Equality, that contributed to drafting the bill, said that they would review the law, to see if it could include single fathers.“Our focus was the best interest of the child. The bill is aimed at the best possible care of the child and that the father should be present in this procedure during the first days of the life of a newborn,” official of the commissioner’s office, Andri Savva said.The 15 days’ leave allowance is a stepping stone toward that direction, she said.“We will examine this, assess it and see how to include this category of fathers, given that all criteria should ensure the best interest of the child,” Savva said.The paid paternity leave must be used during the 16 weeks that maternity leave is in effect. The two weeks fathers take as leave will be deducted from the 16 weeks of their spouses’ maternity leave, meaning that a mother of a newborn will take a 14-week maternity leave so that her husband can take his paternity leave.Paternity leave is payable for two consecutive weeks and the social insurance fund will pay 72 per cent of the applicant’s weekly salary. Applicants must present, among others, the baby’s birth certificate, as well as certificates of marriage or of a co-habitation agreement. Eligible to apply are fathers who have paid up contributions to the social insurance fund.For the Mediterranean Institute of Gender Studies (Migs), the paternity leave is a positive step, but not a substantive one.“It is inadequate, it covers a very small gap, and it is very short (15 days) compared to other countries,” policy coordinator at Migs, Josie Christodoulou told the Cyprus Mail. She added that in other countries, paternity leave is combined with other support measures.“It does not cover real needs. What is it that the government wanted to cover? Which needs?” she asked. “It’s a start, but perhaps we should rethink which needs we want to address”.Maria Angeli, also of Migs, said that the findings of a survey carried out by the institute indicated that there is lack of support for couples with newborns and for the elderly.But the paternity leave is also dependent on the financial background of each family, Christodoulou said. She added that according to statistics, after child birth, the work hours of fathers are increased, while those of the mothers are decreased.She added that there are a number of factors that need to be examined for a comprehensive policy to assist families with newborns.According to new father Eftychios Savvides, what’s important is the ability of the couple to choose how many of the 16 weeks each could use.“This decision gives me the right to switch two weeks of my wife’s maternity leave for me to use and look after our child,” he said. “I want the right to have more weeks; if she needs only two weeks after giving birth and then she feels ready to go back to work, why should she get the whole 14 weeks, and me just two?” he asked.There are women, he said, who would rather get back to work sooner than those four months expire, so their husbands could take over the care of the baby during the remaining time.“The decision as to how the leave would be shared ought to lie with the couple and their doctor and not the parliament and the government,” Savvides said.The paternity leave proposal, which aimed at eliminating discrimination by offering fathers paid leave, had been tabled by socialist Edek.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
