Planet faces tough environmental challenges UN report warns

Unless urgent action is taken to protect land worldwide, over 70 per cent of the Earth’s surface could be affected by roads, mining, cities and other infrastructure developments in the next 30 years, according to a major new report by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).The Global Environment Outlook-3 report, which examines policies and environmental impacts of the past 30 years and outlines approaches for the coming three decades, says the planet is at a “crucial crossroads with the choices made today critical for the forests, oceans, rivers, mountains, wildlife and other life support systems upon which current and future generations depend.”In addition to analyzing habitat disturbance caused by poorly planned infrastructure growth, the report cautions that more than half of all people could be living in severely “water-stressed” areas by 2032 if market forces drive the globe’s agenda.On the positive side, the report predicts that the proportion of hungry people in the world appears set to fall. Under one future scenario, hunger could decline to as little as 2.5 per cent of the global population by 2032 – a figure in line with the UN Millennium Declaration goals. Concerted action involving Governments, industry and individual citizens could also deliver deep cuts in emissions of the gases linked with global warming. In a forecasting section, the report divides possible future scenarios into two types: Market First and Sustainability First. For example, it finds that under the former scenario, emissions of carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels would reach around 16 billion ton a year by 2032. Under a Sustainability First scenario, emissions would also rise but radical shifts in behaviour allied to the vigorous introduction of more energy efficient technologies could cause global carbon dioxide emissions to fall below 8 billion ton annually by the same year.“We can never know for certain what lies before us,” said UNEP Executive Director Klaus Toepfer at the report’s launch in London today. “But we know enough now to see how our actions or lack of actions might shape the environment and the inhabitants of this extraordinary blue planet by 2032.” He called for the necessary political courage and innovative financing to “steer a healthier, more prosperous, course for planet Earth.”Mr. Toepfer also underscored that the report was released just three months in advance of the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD), which would take place in Johannesburg, South Africa. “This is a summit for sustainable development, but it is also a summit for the environment,” he said, emphasizing that “without the environment there can never be the kind of development needed to secure a fair deal for this or future generations.” read more

Council suggests buying a loved one a wheelie bin for Christmas

The bins, in which you can dump grass cuttings, leaves, pruning and hedge trimmings – but not soil, rubbles or household waste – are collected every two weeks from March to November and every month from December to February.All waste from the garden waste bins are turned into compost and used in local farms.Chris Stevens, 36, said his wife would be fuming if she found a giant 240-litre wheelie bin under the tree.He said: “My wife would not be happy if she found a massive wheelie bin under the tree.”Apart from anything else it would cost a fortune to wrap it up – what a daft idea.”Sam Russell wrote online: “Drop everything – Bromley Council have the best gift ideas.”And Sharon Hook wrote: “Ha ha – just want I’ve always wanted – a giant bin for Christmas. What a rubbish idea!” A council has been criticised for a “rubbish” idea after recommending that locals buy a loved one a £60 wheelie for Christmas.Bromley Council in south London has written to residents suggesting that a 240-litre wheelie bin for garden waste with fortnightly collection thrown in could be the perfect present.Writing in the most recent winter newsletter, called Environment Matters, the council states: “Need an unusual gift idea? Treat that special someone to a year’s worth of garden waste collections!”Your loved one will receive a large 240L wheelie bin to hold all types of green garden waste including leaves, weeds, twigs, grass cuttings and even real Christmas trees.”Scheduled collections are made regularly every other week during peak gardening season March to November, then once a month from December to February.”Why not sign up yourself and save the hassle of disposal? If you have a smaller garden or if you only garden occasionally, you can even share the cost and the wheelie bin with a neighbour. “It says you can either buy the bin – which will be emptied for the year – or buy gift voucher.The council says that the annual garden waste collection service costs the equivalent of just £1.15-a-week and is “exclusive to residents in the borough” and is “ideal if you are frequent gardener or if you are unable to home compost large amounts of garden waste yourself”.last_img read more

Barn conversions pushing bats into churches bishop says

Clearly bats have gone up the candle in their churchmanshipRt Revd Graham James Bats are ruining churches because of barn conversions, the Bishop of Norwich has said. Speaking in the house of Lords, the Rt Revd Graham James said that bats had moved into churches in his diocese because old barns were being made into homes. “All over Norfolk there are barns once used by bats which have been turned into beautiful homes for human beings. And their new owners do not want to share their property with them. And so the bats have moved to medieval churches,” he said. Speaking in support of a bat conservation bill sponsored by Conservative peer Lord Cormack, he said that worshippers in some areas had “come to the end of their tether” because their “glorious building” had become “increasingly unusable for worship or any other community purpose”. “I think we tolerate this because we think houses of God are not inhabited. But they are, and not only by God – they are inhabited by people,” he said. Bat droppings can cause damage to church fittings such as fonts and pews, and require intensive cleaning by volunteers if the church is to be used for services. Around 60 per cent of pre-16th century churches are estimated to contain bat roosts. The bishop also joked that a longstanding deterrence method, the use of incense, was becoming less effective. “I used to recommend the regular use of incense, partly because I’m very High Church, and love incense, and bats appear very Protestant, since they normally departed where incense was used.”But even that is not now guaranteed to do the trick – clearly bats have gone up the candle in their churchmanship,” he said. The bill would remove bat protection laws in churches unless there was no “significant adverse impact” and prevent new building without a local bat survey.It has been opposed by the Bat Conservation Trust, which warned it would be “disastrous for those bat species that rely on churches”. Lord Cormack denied the bill was “anti-bats” and said something had to be done to protect churches and tackle the hygiene risk.The move was opposed by both the Government and the Opposition in the Lords, with Environment, Food and Rural Affairs minister Lord Gardiner of Kimble saying the Government could not support the bill as churches played a vital part in the survival of bats.

The alteration will also allow the company to have more financial flexibility.“The company considers that it is in the interests of the company and its independent shareholders as a whole to utilize its resources for business development and other business opportunities in order to maximize returns to its shareholders.”Suncity also referenced Hong Kong Stock Exchange listing rules as a reason for the agreement, with redemption of the convertible bonds to push Fame Select’s holdings from 72.17% to 79.60%. Listing rules require at least 25% of the company’s issued share capital to be held by the public at all times.Suncity Group is currently building its first integrated resort, Hoiana, in Vietnam – a project in which it holds a 34% stake.last_img read more

CJI sexual harassment case Woman who accused Gogoi pulls out of inquiry

first_img[Representational Image]The Supreme Court of IndiaA woman who accused the chief justice of India’s Supreme Court of sexual harassment said on Tuesday she would no longer participate in the proceedings of a judges’ panel investigating the case as she does not expect justice.The 35-year-old junior court assistant, whose identity has not been publicly disclosed, wrote a letter to all Supreme Court judges along with an affidavit detailing her allegations against India’s most powerful judge Ranjan Gogoi.He has denied the charges.The woman’s complaint included allegations she and her family were victimised by authorities after she spurned the alleged advances of Gogoi.In her statement on Tuesday, the woman said she was not allowed to have her representative present despite impaired hearing and anxiety. She also said there was no video or audio recording made, and she was not given a copy of her statements on the case from previous days.”I found the atmosphere of the committee very frightening and I was very nervous because of being confronted and questioned by three Supreme Court Judges and without even the presence of my lawyer/support person,” she said.”I felt I was not likely to get justice from this committee and so I am no longer participating in the 3-Judge Committee proceedings.”No immediate comment was available from the Supreme Court.Gogoi has said the accusations showed India’s judiciary was under threat from a wider conspiracy, without elaborating.”There is some bigger force behind the woman,” he told a special hearing on Saturday.last_img read more

Dominos Brings Autonomous Pizza Delivery to Houston

first_imgStay on target Help NASA Develop Autonomous RoversU.S. Army To Test Remote-Controlled Combat Vehicles Domino’s delivery drivers may want to start looking for work elsewhere.The pizza company has partnered with robotics firm Nuro to autonomously distribute dinner—no human-to-human eye contact necessary.Using the next-gen unmanned R2 vehicle, Domino’s expects to start serving select Houston customers “later this year.”Lucky folks who order online from a participating pizza shop can opt in to Nuro’s autonomous delivery and track the car from Domino’s to your door. Er… your driveway.Without a real live person to carry and hand over a greasy feast, you’ll have to actually leave the house—even if it’s just to walk 10 feet. Which may put a damper on your Friday-night PJ party for one. (Just don’t forget the keys.)Once the wheeled pod arrives, simply enter a unique PIN to retrieve your food from the storage compartment—hopefully before the neighbors spy your fluffy bunny slippers.“We are always looking for new ways to innovate and evolve the delivery experience for our customers,” Domino’s Executive Vice President Kevin Vasconi said in a statement. “The opportunity to bring our customers the choice of an unmanned delivery experience—and our operators an additional delivery solution during a busy store rush—is an important part of our autonomous vehicle testing.”This isn’t Domino’s first high-tech rodeo: The restaurant chain in 2015 crowdsourced the “ultimate delivery vehicle,” before introducing what they claimed at the time was the world’s first autonomous delivery robot—Domino’s Robotic Unit, or DRU.Around the same time, former Googlers Jianjun Zhu and Dave Ferguson teamed up to form Nuro, which develops autonomous delivery vehicles.The firm officially launched in early 2018 with the unveiling of its first product, the R1 electric self-driving local commerce car. Weighing in at 1,500 lbs., the stocky sedan is designed to carry only cargo, with space for 12 grocery bags in the first model.“We are excited to expand our autonomous delivery service in Houston with Domino’s,” according to Cosimo Leipold, Nuro’s head of partner relations.“Domino’s delivers millions of pizzas around the world every day, and the company shares our passion for focusing on the customer experience,” he continued. “We see incredible opportunity in offering Nuro’s world-class autonomous technology to Domino’s customers, accelerating our shared mission to transform local commerce.”This marks Domino’s first real use of delivery automation.A previous tie-in with Ford, as CNET pointed out, was “just smoke and mirrors”; its so-called self-driving car featured a human driver hidden behind blacked-out windows.More on Geek.com:Domino’s Will Use AI-Powered Cameras to Check Pizza OrdersOrder Domino’s Directly From Your Car’s TouchscreenAutonomous Bar Will Drive Up and Mix You Drinkslast_img read more

This painless, noninvasive treatment allows patients to maintain their quality of life and resume normal activities as quickly as possible. This is because, as opposed to standard radiation therapy, proton therapy allows physicians to deliver higher treatment dosages that destroy the main tumor site without causing harm to surrounding healthy tissue or organs. Because it is more precise, it causes less damage to a patient’s body.“The power and precision offered by proton therapy contributes to quicker recovery times, fewer side effects and better outcomes,” said Jerry Slater, M.D., chairman of the hospital’s Proton Treatment Center. “Patients with a wide range of conditions — including prostate, lung and brain cancers – can all benefit from what proton therapy has to offer.”Proton therapy is completely noninvasive, no cut or incision is made to remove the cancer. The once-daily therapy sessions are painless and the patient can leave immediately following treatment. Because of proton therapy’s accuracy, many of the side effects of radiation treatment can be significantly reduced.For more information: www.protons.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center expansion is expected to be completed in 2023.

Unbalanced sewerage fees in Nicosia and Paphos to be slashed

first_imgThe House interior committee decided on Monday to reduce Nicosia and Paphos sewerage fees for 2017 by 30 per cent and 15 per cent respectively after households received higher bills this year based on updated property values.According to the head of the committee, Eleni Mavrou, the reduction, which was a suggestion by ruling Disy, will be applied to this year’s fees, and taxpayers in these two districts will be sent new bills with the revised amounts. The reduction for each household will be proportional to the original charge. Fees are payable, without penalty, until the end of the year.Taxpayers who have already paid the increased fees, will benefit from the reduction next year, Mavrou said.The two sewerage boards in question this year used 2013 property values, meaning higher bills for those whose owners had been paying very low rates in the past because the state and local authorities were using 1980s values.“The imposition of a sewerage tax must be fiscally neutral,” Mavrou said. She added that the Nicosia and Paphos sewerage boards which increased the fees, have been asked to proceed with a reduction in the rates to restore balance.Disy head Averof Neophytou welcomed the decision a positive step to the benefit of taxpayers.Greens’ MP Giorgos Perdikis said that the revised fees meant additional proceeds to the tune of €5m for the Nicosia sewerage board and €1m for that of Paphos.During the process to update values in 2013, the authorities found numerous cases where a property that was just a plot in the 1980s now contained a house or apartment block.Nicosia sewerage board deputy director Savvas Hadjineocleous had told MPs last month that all these years, people whose properties were properly valued had been in a way subsidising those whose real estate was not. MPs heard last month that the change meant a reduction of rates in 60 per cent to 70 per cent of cases, and a raise in 30 per cent to 40 per cent.You May LikeYahoo SearchThe Early Signs Of Type 2 Diabetes.
