Enbridge TransCanada to test out Calgary pipeline leak detection tech

first_imgThe fear of oil spills remains a major obstacle for those in the energy industry trying to push through pipeline projects, but one company thinks it has a solution to shore up safety.Two major companies, Enbridge and TransCanada, will be experimenting with a new leak detection system in both Canada and the U.S.Hifi’s President and CEO Steven Koles said the High Fidelity Dynamic Sensing (HDS) technology can accurately measure acoustics, temperature, vibration and strain.“We can also focus on events that might be precursors to a leak: a construction crew that’s digging to close to a pipeline — an earthquake that might create a geo-technical event,” he said.There are many other leak detection systems out there, but HDS claims to be the most sensitive.“You literally get an alarm in a second,” Koles said.“We actually take information or data that’s being sensed in real time on the pipeline and we transmit this into what’s called GE Predix, which goes into the control room of Enbridge and TransCanada.”The start-up is in the middle of pipeline politics.“But we are actually quite proud to say we are a fully made-in-Canada solution to a very relevant Canadian problem, and so, we think we can help,” Koles said.But, Hifi has the backing of the provincial government and will be partnering with the two major industry players with help from the Alberta Innovates program.Both ends of the Keystone pipeline from Hardisty, Alberta to Houston, Texas and Enbridge’s new Norlite pipeline will be fitted with the technology.last_img read more

City of Fort St John considers feminine hygiene products at public facilities

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – At Monday’s Regular Council meeting Councillor Byron Stewart made a notice of motion regarding public facilities and free feminine hygiene products.Councillor Stewart inquired if free feminine hygiene products were available in public facilities in response to the news of the provincial government now offering free hygiene products in schools.“Wondering if we have a policy in place regarding feminine hygiene products in our public facilities,” said Councillor Stewart, “going forward with that in my mind it’s part of our bodies regular functioning as much as toilet paper, water and paper towel.” The provincial government issued a press release Friday, April 5th, 2019, under a ministerial order, that all B.C. public schools will be required to provide free menstrual products for students in school washrooms by the end of 2019.Education Minister Rob Fleming said it’s time to normalize and equalize access to menstrual products in schools, helping to create a better learning environment for students.“Students should never have to miss school, extracurricular, sports or social activities because they can’t afford or don’t have access to menstrual products,” said Fleming, adding that current research indicates that one in seven students has missed school due to their periods because they cannot afford products.“This is a common-sense step forward that is, frankly, long overdue. We look forward to working with school districts and communities to make sure students get the access they need with no stigma and no barriers.”The ministerial order – takes effect immediately but allows districts until the end of 2019 to comply – comes with $300,000 in provincial startup funding. Over the coming months, the ministry will continue to work with school districts, community and education partners to look at the needs of each district, identify gaps and ensure they have the funding needed to meet this new requirement.last_img read more

US stocks retreat, on pace for first drop in nearly 2 weeks

NEW YORK — U.S. stock indexes pulled back on Monday, putting at least a temporary halt to their weekslong advance. The early drop comes at the beginning of a busy week for markets.The S&P 500 was slightly lower from the onset of trading, and if it stays down, it would be the first loss in eight days for the index. The trend has been decidedly upward in recent weeks as stocks have grinded higher, mostly in modest increments. It follows a torrid start to the year, when the S&P 500 surged to its best quarter in nearly a decade after the Federal Reserve calmed investors by saying it may not raise interest rates at all in 2019.Later this week, investors will get more clues about the Fed’s intentions. The central bank will release the minutes from its last policy meeting on Wednesday, and a report on consumer prices the same day will show whether inflation remains modest, which would give the Fed more leeway to keep interest rates low.Earnings reporting season will begin in earnest at the end of this week, with JPMorgan Chase and other big banks set to tell investors how much they earned during the first three months of the year. Expectations are low for the entire market, and analysts are forecasting the first drop in profits in years.That puts more focus on what CEOs say about their profit prospects for the rest of the year. Analysts are expecting profit growth to resume after the weak first quarter, and if CEOs undercut those beliefs, it would put downward pressure on stock prices.Investors are also watching across the Atlantic, as the U.K. prime minister prepares to meet leaders from Germany and France ahead of a Friday deadline, when the United Kingdom is scheduled to depart the European Union. Economists worry about the drag on trade and the economy if the departure happens without a withdrawal agreement.All this comes against a backdrop of heightened worries about global economic growth and a global trade war. Growth has slowed, and investors are debating how much last week’s stronger-than-expected report on U.S. jobs changes the picture. Negotiations between the United States and China on their trade dispute are ongoing.KEEPING SCORE: The S&P 500 was down 0.3% as of 10 a.m. Eastern time. It’s still within 1.6% of its most recent record high set in September.The Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 147 points, or 0.6%, at 26,278, and the Nasdaq composite fell 0.4%.GROUNDED: Boeing slumped 4%, one of the biggest losses in the S&P 500, after the company said late Friday that it will cut production of its 737 Max plane this month. Regulators around the world grounded the jet model after it was involved in two separate fatal crashes that occurred within weeks of each other.TRADE PROGRESS: China’s official news agency said Sunday that trade talks with the U.S. in Washington last week “achieved new progress.” It said remaining issues will be handled through “various effective means” but did not elaborate on where or when further discussions will happen. It said three-day talks that ended Friday dealt with issues including technology transfer, intellectual property rights protection, non-tariff measures, agriculture and enforcement.Beijing and Washington are working to end a standoff over Beijing’s industrial and technology policies that has shaken financial markets and darkened the world economic outlook.White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement Friday that “significant work remains” and the two sides would be in continuous contact.___AP Business Writer Elaine Kurtenbach contributed from Bangkok.Stan Choe, The Associated Press read more

Toxic wastes caused deaths illnesses in Côte dIvoire – UN expert

In August of that year, the cargo ship “Probo Koala” dumped 500 tonnes of toxic wastes, belonging to the Dutch commodity trading company Trafigura, at sites around the city of Abidjan, the West African nation’s largest city.According to official estimates, 15 people died, 69 people were hospitalized and over 100,000 others, complaining of nausea and vomiting after inhaling fumes, sought medical treatment after the incident.“We still don’t know – and we may never know – the full effect of the dumping” of the wastes, said Okechukwu Ibeanu, the Special Rapporteur on the adverse effects of the illicit movement and dumping of toxic and dangerous products and wastes.“But there seems to be strong prima facie evidence that the reported deaths and adverse health consequences are related to the dumping of the waste” from the Probo Koala, he added.The expert has written a report after visiting both Côte d’Ivoire and the Netherlands to examine the impact of the dumping of dangerous wastes on the enjoyment of human rights.He encouraged all parties involved to take steps “to address possible long-term human health and environmental effects of the incident.“Further action should be taken to protect the right to life, the right to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health and the right to a healthy environment of all affected victims and their families.”Last August, Mr. Ibeanu said the areas where the toxic waste was dumped still have not been decontaminated and continue to threaten the health of residents, with many Abidjan residents complaining of headaches, skin lesions, digestive difficulties and nose, throat and lung problems.“The people of Abidjan need urgent assistance,” he said. “After two years, they continue to live in precarious conditions and their right to a healthy and safe environment continues to be violated.”As a Special Rapporteur, Mr. Ibeanu serves in an unpaid capacity and reports to the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council. 16 September 2009Evidence indicates that the dumping of toxic wastes caused over one dozen deaths and dozens of illnesses in Côte d’Ivoire in 2006, an independent United Nations human rights expert said today. read more

UN official says Brazil meeting good chance to reexamine efforts on global

This summer’s ministerial meeting of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) will be an excellent opportunity for countries to review efforts to resume global trade negotiations since the stalemate last September in Cancún, Mexico, UNCTAD Secretary-General Rubens Ricupero said today.There was general agreement that the last possible period to work out the framework for future trade negotiations would be the end of July, therefore the meeting from 13 to 18 June in São Paulo, Brazil, would beat the deadline by a month, he said at a press briefing at UN Headquarters in New York.While it was difficult to predict whether trade negotiations in the World Trade Organization (WTO) would be successful, the conditions in “the real world of trade” were much more encouraging now than they were in the recent past, he said.The world economy would probably expand by as much as 4.5 per cent this year, Mr. Ricupero said. World trade had grown by 4.7 per cent last year and, according to estimates, could grow by 7.5 per cent in 2004, providing better opportunities for exports and creating a more propitious climate for trade negotiations.The theme of the meeting would be “Enhancing coherence between national development strategies and global economic processes towards economic growth and development, particularly of developing countries,” he said. The meeting would deal specifically with such developing country complaints as improving access to markets in rich countries and the need to redress past imbalances in the world trading system.UNCTAD’s ministerial-level meeting is held every four years to set the organization’s priorities and guidelines for action.One document expected to come out of the meeting, currently being negotiated at the preparatory committee meeting in Geneva, would include development strategies in a globalizing world economy; improving international competitiveness; assuring development gains from the international trading system and creating partnerships for development, Ambassador Luiz de Felipe de Seixas de Correa of Brazil said. read more

Will GM departure force OHL team to abandon Generals name

Oshawa Generals team president and governor Rocco Tullio says the five-time Memorial Cup-winning club hasn’t explored the possibility of changing its name now that General Motors plans to leave the city.The Generals are named after the automaking giant, with GM being their original sponsor when they joined the Ontario Hockey Association in 1937.After the announcement earlier this week that GM would be shuttering its plant and laying off its 2,500 workers by the end of 2019 there were calls on social media for the team to change its name.“We’re steeped in history here. We’ve been around for over 80 years. We’ve had the likes of Bobby Orr,” said Tullio.“…I understand it and trust me when it hits close to home like that, people are angry, right, and they want to lash out and I get it, but as an organization, we haven’t even considered it at this point in time.”Tullio – whose hometown of Windsor, Ont., saw its GM trim and transmission plants close in 2008 and 2010, respectively – called Monday’s news “disappointing” and said the team, along with the league, is looking into ways to reach out to those affected by the layoffs.“This isn’t about hockey at this stage of the game, it’s about supporting these families in our community,” he said.Jordan Sanders, 26, – who works on the GM plant’s assembly line – was at Oshawa’s first home game on Saturday since the news broke with three-week-old daughter, Peyton, two-year-old son, Cohen, and her father, Doug.Sanders, a single mother who has been on maternity leave since October and has worked at the factory for more than five years, supports the idea that if GM leaves the city the hockey team should change its name.“They don’t treat any of the workers with any respect, because they just did this almost 10 years ago to the workers there and I wouldn’t want to keep around a name like that in Oshawa,” said Sanders, referencing the 2009 closure of GM’s pickup truck plant.Sanders’ father Doug, who spent 34 years at GM, helped her get the job at the company after previously working for feeder plants in the area.Doug Sanders, who was given a buyout and retired from that plant, was less certain about changing the team name.The former union representative and city councillor – whose son also works at Lear, a General Motors feeder plant in Whitby, Ont., and expects will lose his job – said he couldn’t envision a team in Oshawa not called the Generals.He noted that the team was “built on the backs” of auto workers who donated money for the construction the Oshawa Civic Auditorium, which opened in 1964.Oshawa had no team between 1953 and 1962 after its former home, Hambly’s Arena, burned down.Besides the crest on its jersey, the club has few remaining ties to GM in 2018. After the Generals left the Auditorium in 2006, the city opened a new downtown arena, called the General Motors Centre. But those naming rights expired in 2016 and Tullio said the team no longer has a direct affiliation with the American car giant.Season-ticket holder Ron Gallant, 67, who worked at GM for nearly 30 years and was also part of the truck plant closure in 2009, said it would be “strange” if the team changed its name, but understood why they might want to move on.“I mean, why should you be associated with something that has basically devastated the community?,” he said.Andrew Landry, 39, – who came to the game with his flag-toting, seven-year-old son Callum – hopes the team could embrace a “change of focus” rather than a brand-new name, pointing to the city’s Canadian Forces museum as potential inspiration.“We’ve got five Memorial Cups under the Generals banner name and I can’t see that changing,” he said.John Gray, a current city councillor and Oshawa’s mayor between 2003 and 2010, said dropping the Generals would be a “knee-jerk reaction.”“I think that’s petty and vindictive – we are the Generals, whether (General Motors is) here or not,” he said.John Snowden’s links to GM span several generations. The 54-year-old worked in a number roles for the company, including in production and as an electrician, dating back to when he was a student in the 1980s. Both his brothers also had jobs with the automaker, as did his grandfather.The Oshawa native lamented the possible loss of the good-paying jobs in his community, but is holding out hope that GM’s operations in the city can be saved and believes its hockey team should stay true to its past as well.“I think once a General always a General. I think we should keep it as the Generals. Keep back to our roots of where it used to be.”“I don’t like changing names, guess I’m a stickler for the old way of things.” BROWSE general motors | ohl | oshawa generals read more

Eruption solaire inhabituelle les communications brouillées ce mercredi

first_imgEruption solaire inhabituelle : les communications brouillées ce mercredi ?Repérée par un observatoire spatial de la Nasa, une éruption solaire inhabituelle et spectaculaire risque de perturber les satellites et réseaux de communications terrestres ce mercredi.Si ce soir vous ne parvenez pas à passer correctement des appels depuis votre téléphone portable ou à trouver le bon itinéraire sur votre GPS, ce sera peut-être à cause du Soleil. En effet, une éruption solaire “spectaculaire”, d’après la description du Centre de prévisions spatiales NWS, et d’une intensité assez rare est survenue hier matin à 7h41 (heure de Paris). Elle pourrait provoquer des perturbations dans l’activité des satellites (GPS notamment) et des communications. Selon un porte-parole de l’agence spatiale américaine, certains avions de ligne pourraient même se voir obligés de modifier leur itinéraire au-dessus des régions polaires ce soir.À lire aussiSpaceX : un satellite d’Elon Musk manque d’entrer en collision avec un satellite de l’ESAAucune éruption solaire d’une telle magnitude n’avait été observée depuis… 2006, selon un observatoire spatial de la Nasa. Toutefois, l’éruption n’a pas eu lieu en direction de la Terre. Ses effets devraient donc rester “relativement faibles”, explique l’Agence spatiale américaine. En outre, une tempête géomagnétique “mineure ou modérée” pourrait résulter de ce phénomène et des aurores boréales seront très certainement visibles tard ce soir ou demain soir.

Chaque éruption s’accompagne d’un intense rayonnement (UV, rayons X, etc.) qui perturbe les transmissions radioélectriques terrestres et provoque l’apparition des aurores polaires en entrant en interaction avec le champ magnétique terrestre.Le 8 juin 2011 à 09:23 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Utah Must Cover 475K in Legal Fees After Losing Deadpool Case

first_imgStay on target If you mess with Deadpool, you get the horns.Or, in this case, a massive fine.A federal judge on Wednesday ordered Utah to pay nearly half a million dollars in legal fees after losing a court case involving a movie theater that served alcohol during screenings of the 2016 superhero flick.At the time, it was a violation of state law to offer booze during movies that include full-frontal nudity and simulated sex. (Because, according to the predominantly Mormon state, alcohol and intercourse make for an “explosive combination.”)The law, however, was so vague “it would apply to Michelangelo’s ‘David,’” former Salt Lake City mayor Rocky Anderson argued, as reported by the Associated Press.Still, simply fulfilling its civic duty, the Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control threatened to tax Brewvies Cinema Pub up to $25,000 following screenings of the R-rated X-Men spinoff.Authorities were allegedly concerned about a suggestive end-credits scene involving a cartoon unicorn. (A scene most audiences probably wouldn’t have even stuck around to watch.)So, the theater—previously fined for showing other racy features like Magic Mike XXL—sued the conservative state, and won.In 2017, U.S. District Court Judge David Nuffer found that the law was in violation of the First Amendment (freedom of drunken speech?) and should be dismissed.Now, more than a year later, Nuffer ruled that Brewvies shouldn’t have to pay legal fees for the case; instead, the state must reimburse $474,455.22 to the cinema’s legal team.“The political judgment of the state that it will enact a statute contrary to existing law and risk payment of legal fees is a legitimate choice, but it has consequences,” Nuffer wrote in his judgment, as reported by the Associated Press.According to the Salt Lake Tribune, most of the money will be donated to the DKT Liberty Project in Washington, D.C., which helped with the suit.Neither Brewvies or the Utah Attorney General immediately responded to Geek’s request for comment.Utah is one of 17 alcoholic beverage control territories that have state monopoly over the wholesaling or retailing of beer, wine, and distilled spirits.Last month, the Deadpool and Friends’ Believe in Your Selfie Museum popped up in New York City, offering fans several photo ops.

New TB drug inaccessible to many South AfricansNew TB drug inaccessible to

first_imgWebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite Doctors Without Borders (MSF), other treatment providers in South Africa and globally have found that the first new drugs in half a century to be developed for treating drug-resistant tuberculosis (DR-TB) are offering new hope to patients — but significant challenges remain to improve availability and affordability of these treatments.Current treatment regimens for DR-TB involve thousands of pills taken over two years, which can have devastating side effects and ultimately only work for 50% of people with multidrug-resistant (MDR) TB and 26% of people with extensively drug-resistant (XDR) TB.Access to new drugs bedaquiline and delamanid along with ‘repurposed’ drugs — not specifically developed for TB but that have shown efficacy in treating TB — could be a significant step toward finding a shorter, more tolerable DR-TB regimen in the future.This is good news for South Africa, which has one of the highest burdens of multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) in the world, with 30,000 new cases each year, over 18,000 people diagnosed and over 11,500 put on treatment in 2014. *Article supplied by Doctors Without Borders (MSF). Follow them on Facebook and Twitter for more groundbreaking initiatives.center_img Only 3,000 patients worldwide have been treated with bedaquiline, and fewer than 200 with delamanid – only 2% of the 150,000 people around the world that could benefit.“MSF is treating some of the lucky few people in South Africa — and in fact the whole world – to receive access to strengthened treatment regimens including bedaquiline and delamanid,” said Dr. Jennifer Hughes of MSF in South Africa. “South Africa’s Department of Health has been a leader in accessing new DR-TB drugs, with over 1,750 patients receiving bedaquiline nationally since 2013.Ubuntu clinic (integrated TB/HIV) in Khayelitsha.Patients receiving bedaquiline in South Africa had 77% ‘culture conversion’ rates from TB-positive to negative, which is a promising sign that their treatment may ultimately be successful. Additional information from South Africa showed similar safety and efficacy even when bedaquiline was given together with antiretroviral therapy (ART) to TB/HIV co-infected people, another sign that this drug has the potential to transform DR-TB treatment in coming years.Delamanid, however, is not yet as widely available in South Africa.“TB is curable, yet it is now the infectious disease that kills the most people in the world,” said Dr. Grania Brigden, TB Advisor for the MSF Access Campaign. “We desperately need treatment that is easier for people to tolerate, that cures more people, and that is more available and affordable, otherwise it’s just deadly business as usual.”last_img read more

Rex Ryan understands his current predicament even

Rex Ryan understands his current predicament, even if the Buffalo Bills coach tried to downplay it on a conference call with Arizona reporters Wednesday.“Obviously we are extremely disappointed with where we’re at, you know, 0-2,” Ryan said. “It’s two games. We’ve been beat (by) six points in both games. I get it. It’s not where we wanted to be, but there’s a lot of football left to be played, win, lose, or draw.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The optics on that documentary also look bad after Ryan fired offensive coordinator Greg Roman two weeks into the season. Remember that infamous line in the documentary? “And if it doesn’t work, I’ll be the first m—–f—– that goes.”It’s understandable that Ryan was trying to fire up his team and in the heat of those moments, he might have said some things he didn’t mean or consider, but it doesn’t help his credibility right now, nor does this disingenuous firing.Roman’s offense had some problems sustaining drives, executing on third down and managing the clock, but Roman was hamstrung by the lack of an elite and experienced quarterback or elite personnel. Ryan has no such excuse. His calling card is defense and the Bills were supposed to have a good one, yet they surrendered 374 passing yards to Ryan Fitzpatrick while Matt Forte rushed for 100 yards and three touchdowns in the Jets’ 37-31 win last Thursday.Here’s what Ryan said at a press conference when he was hired in January 2015.“I have one more shot to be head coach and I have to get it done. I understand I won’t have another opportunity and don’t want another opportunity.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Time’s a wastin’, and as NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reported, the Pegulas have already met with several key offensive players behind Ryan’s back, which doesn’t exactly engender confidence in his ability or future.“I never concern myself with that,” Ryan said Wednesday. “I just do the best job I can.”Follow Craig Morgan on Twitter There may not be a lot of football left for Ryan to coach in Buffalo though if the Bills lose to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday at New Era Field in Orchard Park, New York. Only five teams in NFL history have ever made the playoffs after an 0-3 start, and it hasn’t happened since 1998.This is only Ryan’s second season in Buffalo, but the NFL is a notoriously impatient league and for a team that finished 8-8 last season and 9-7 the year before, this start cannot be viewed as progress to owners Terry and Kim Pegula.Harder still for Ryan is that he is his own worst enemy when it comes to earning latitude. Like his father Buddy, who came to Arizona in 1994 and proclaimed: “You’ve got a winner in town,” Rex Ryan’s approach is bravado-based.His obscenity laced tirade for a team-produced documentary titled “Rex and Rob Reunited” may be the norm for football teams, but Ryan’s brash talk is misplaced for a coach who hasn’t been to the playoffs in his last five seasons at the helm of the Bills and the New York Jets. Once his honeymoon season ended, it was easy to see right through that façade, and it will become increasingly tiring to endure it.

heightened focus on rail safety In 2013 47 people were killed in the Quebec town of Lac-Mégantic after a train carrying crude oil derailed and explodedThe latest incidents will likely refocus attention on US and Canadian regulators’ efforts to improve the safety of such shipments which have spurred concerns over both the flammability of very light oil from the North Dakota Bakken shale as well as the flawed design of older tank carsThe US Transportation Department has submitted a proposal to the White House to require adding an extra 1/8th inch of steel to most existing oil train tank
