22 December 2008The United Nations is bringing $500,000 in emergency food aid to 30,000 Colombians after a volcanic eruption caused massive flooding and avalanches in the northern and western parts of the South American nation. The country’s harshest, most destructive rainy season on record has wreaked havoc on the Sucre, Bolivar and Choco provinces, leaving 24,000 people in need of assistance, according to the UN World Food Programme (WFP). “Although the Government of Colombia’s response to the various disasters has been effective and timely, the number of victims has surpassed our expectations,” said Praveen Agrawal, WFP’s representative in Colombia. WFP will begin by distributing a 40-day supply of non-perishable food to 4,500 people in 30 communities in San Juan, a Pacific coastal municipality in the north. The agency will coordinate the relief effort with the Colombia Institute for Family Welfare and the Social Action Agency of the Presidency. “The most vulnerable groups are our greatest concern because they suffer the most from natural disasters. Thousands have lost everything, but WFP has the logistical capacity to help people even in the least accessible parts of the country to rebuild their lives and their communities,” Mr. Agrawal said. Heavy rains since September have already plagued much of the country, claiming the lives of 66 people and affecting more than 1 million more. In addition, in late November, the Nevado de Huila volcano erupted, leaving some 6,000 people in need of aid. WFP’s operations in Colombia this year have benefited more than 450,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs).
The humanitarian crisis engulfing Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip is on the verge of being forgotten because of the fighting taking place in Lebanon and northern Israel, and children are suffering more than most, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) warned today.Gaza’s children – estimated at more than 830,000 – “are living in an environment of extraordinary violence, fear and anxiety,” UNICEF Special Representative in the occupied Palestinian territory, Dan Rohrmann, said today in a statement released in Jerusalem after he visited Gaza.UNICEF announced it is stepping up its assistance in health, education, water and sanitation programmes, as well as counselling and activities for adolescents and younger children, across the Gaza Strip.Mr. Rohrmann said 35 Palestinian children have been killed in Gaza over the past month, with almost a quarter of them under 10 years of age. He added that since the second intifada began in September 2000, some 912 children have been killed, including 119 Israeli children.The Office of the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process (UNSCO) reported today that 38 Palestinians have been killed, including 7 children, and more than 130 others injured, by Israeli Defence Force (IDF) strikes since last Wednesday.Fierce fighting has continued on both sides over the past week: the IDF has fired more than 1,050 artillery shots into Gaza and Palestinian militants have launched about 70 home-made rockets into Israel.Gaza’s border crossings are partially or entirely closed, while the electricity supply to the region remains erratic since the IDF destroyed a power station on 28 June.UNSCO added that its compound in Gaza was substantially damaged on Sunday night during a demonstration by an estimated 5,000 people following the IDF’s shelling at the weekend of a residential building in Qana, southern Lebanon, in which more than 50 civilians were killed.Numerous UN officials, led by Secretary-General Kofi Annan, condemned that attack, which the Security Council also deplored. Most recently, today, the UN Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict, Radhika Coomaraswamy, issued a statement expressing “profound shock and sadness” at the Qana attack, strongly condemning the “callous disregard for children.”Ms. Coomaraswamy’s office, along with UNICEF and other UN partners, has monitors on the ground in Lebanon and Israel to report on possible breaches of international obligations – including killing, maiming, denial of humanitarian access and attacks on schools and hospitals – and plans to report to the Council’s Working Group on children and armed conflict at the earliest opportunity, the statement said.
Norton Gold Fields is restructuring its mining operations at Paddington. Principal changes are a reduction in the mining fleet, replacement of the 24/7 mining roster with a continuous 12/7 roster, and a reduction in the workforce of around 25 people. These changes are practicable following the completion of the prestrip of both the Robinsons and Havana Pits that has led to lower ongoing strip rates; the mine is now able to source around 85% of mill feed from primary ore. The balance of mill feed will be from mineralised stockpiles. These changes continue the process initiated by Norton following the acquisition of Paddington to manage operating costs whilst preserving operating capability. Norton is making these changes and taking other actions to ensure the profitability in a wide range of circumstances. With the successful acquisition of Bellamel Mining announced today, a priority is to bring forward the development of the Bellamel tenements to improve the grade of ore delivered to the Paddington mill and develop a profitable heap leach operation. Starting in the first week of October, Paddington will conduct a one week production-run, processing stockpiled carbonaceous shale material. This offers the potential for an alternative source of mill feed, stockpiled 500 m from the mill. The stockpile could provide gold output similar to that of ore from open cut operations but at zero mining and minimal haulage cost. In excess of 1 Mt carbonaceous shale suitable for milling is contained in stockpiles near to the mill. Results will be reported in the September Quarterly.Norton is Australia’s fourth largest ASX-listed Australian gold producer. It also has active gold, copper, and coal exploration projects. The Bellamel acquisition provides Norton with the opportunity to develop a significant gold heap leach operation. Additionally, the Bellamel properties are prospective for underground development.Norton operates the Paddington gold mine near Kalgoorlie in Western Australia and is planning to develop the Mount Morgan project in Queensland. Following the acquisition of Bellamel, Paddington has a 7.8 Moz resource and a 3 Mt/y CIP plant capable of producing more than 150,000 oz/y of gold. Norton is also planning its first underground operations in FY2010, which is expected to further increase production at Paddington.The company plans to augment this with production from its Mount Morgan project.
Krohne, which describes itself as “a global technology leader in the development, manufacture and distribution of accurate, reliable and cost effective measuring instruments for the process industries”, has introduced the new OPTIFLEX 1100 C level meter for liquids and solids in non-explosive environments. The OPTIFLEX 1100 C offers a “cost-effective and higher performing replacement for traditional level meters such as RF capacitance, conductive and pressure level meters.”The OPTIFLEX 1100 C is two-wire, loop-powered and available with a standard 20 m cable or segmented coaxial probe for liquids and a 10 m cable probe for solids. All probes can be shortened on site and commissioning is completed via an intuitive 5-step “quick set-up” procedure. The OPTIFLEX 1100 C is available with an integrated display and keypad in the cover so that it is not necessary to open the housing cover for configuration. A blind version is also available. Multiple blind versions can be configured on site, using a single HMI (Human-Machine Interface) service tool.The OPTIFLEX 1100 C uses TDR (Time Domain Reflectometry) technology. This state-of-the-art technology measures level independent from physical property variations such as dielectric constants, pressure or density. Unlike traditional meters, OPTIFLEX 1100 C does not need any wet calibration, is immune to linearity problems in irregular tank shapes and has neither fragile nor moving parts. The OPTIFLEX 1100 C is the latest addition to the popular OPTIFLEX product family next to the existing high-precision OPTIFLEX 1300 C TDR level meter, which is widely used in hazardous environments such as the mining industry.

WE’RE NOW DUMPING less waste in landfills than ever, with more waste recovered and a high percentage used for fuel.The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) began recording waste statistics in 1995.It said today that 2012 was the first year that a higher percentage of municipal waste was recovered (56 per cent) than disposed of to landfill (44 per cent).The initial estimates indicate that the proportion of municipal waste recycled in Ireland in 2012 is 38 per cent, down from the 40 per cent recorded in 2011.Fuel The increase in the recovery rate for waste was mainly through an increase in the use of it as fuel (energy recovery).The figures mean that Ireland is on track to achieve the 2013 EU Landfill Directive target of diverting biodegradable municipal waste from landfill.But the EPA warns that meeting the 2016 target is at risk. This could particularly be the case if economic recovery leads to increased waste generation.Although we are generating less landfill waste, the number of landfills accepting municipal solid waste for disposal has also decreased – from 19 in 2012 to 11 by the end of 2013.Waste generationThe EPA puts the change down to increases in the landfill levy and more opportunities for operators to send municipal waste to recovery.When it comes to the increase in use of waste as a fuel, it says that this is due to a few reasons. Ireland’s first municipal waste-to-energy incinerator became fully operational in 2012Cement kilns are using waste as a fuelThe export of refuse derived fuel to waste-to-energy incinerators on the continent has increased.Dr Jonathan Derham, EPA said that this news shows that Ireland is more efficiently using resources and reducing the waste burden on the environment.The decrease in the proportion of municipal waste recycled is a negative trend which needs to be kept under review. We need to continue to focus on waste prevention, reuse and recycling as the economy recovers to avoid an associated increase in waste generation and to ensure efficient use of resources.Read: Raw sewage is being pumped into water in 42 urban areas in Ireland – EPA>

Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The government is making medium-term plans for the creation of a development bank whose exclusive function will be the funding of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and youth entrepreneurship, Economy Minister Giorgos Stathakis announced this week.The government plan provides for a bank along the lines of Germany’s KfW, known in this country for its contribution toward the creation of the Institution for Growth in Greece (IfG). In fact, having the new development bank cooperate with KfW and the European Investment Bank is one of the government’s aims.The main funding tool of the new lender will be the supply of limited credit up to the amount of 25,000 euros to SMEs. The government is also examining the option of the new bank issuing special bonds tied to the projects of local authorities in order to finance infrastructure.There are various versions under examination at the ministry, as some officials argue that the development bank could be structured like a cooperative bank, as the Hellenic Confederation of Commerce and Entrepreneurship (ESEE) and the cooperative lenders’ association have long proposed.Source: Kathimeirni
Liverpool keeper Alisson Becker has received a solid endorsement from AC Milan and Brazil legend Dida.Alisson, 26, has made an excellent start to his Anfield career since completing a £65million move from Serie A side Roma and compatriot Dida believes the shot-stopper is destined for greatness.Dida knows Alisson well having shared a dressing room with him at Internacional in his homeland before the 26-year-old made the move to Europe in 2016.“I like Alisson very much. I think he is a great goalkeeper,” Dida told Liverpool echo via Omnisport.Neymar can win the Ballon d’Or, says Ander Herrera Andrew Smyth – September 13, 2019 An “excited” Ander Herrera believes new Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Neymar is a contender for the Ballon d’Or alongside Kylian Mbappe.“I had the opportunity of working with him at Internacional. I see his great development in football – going to Europe, playing for the Brazilian national team.“I hope he can be what everyone expects of him, conquering many things here in Europe and establishing himself as one of the best goalkeepers in the world.”Alisson has kept seven clean sheets in 12 Premier League appearances for the Reds so far this season.
o Donors contributed more than 500 tickets for the fireworks show for people in need. Most were distributed to local nonprofits, but there were several at each gate. Event staffers gave them out when it was evident that a family couldn’t afford the $7 adult ticket. “One family came to a gate with a glass jar full of change,” said Alishia Topper of the Fort Vancouver National Trust. “We told her people had donated tickets, and it brought her to tears.”Organizers of the Fourth of July fireworks show at Fort Vancouver liked what they saw Sunday night — and it wasn’t just the dazzling display of pyrotechnics.It’s the not-so-dazzling stuff — the nuts and bolts of putting on a major civic event — that will determine the future of the Fourth at the Fort.While a decision on the 2011 show won’t be made for a couple of weeks, things were looking encouraging on Monday morning, said Elson Strahan, president of the Fort Vancouver National Trust.“Unless some dramatic substantial element surprises us, I would feel confident the community can look forward to Independence Day 2011,” Strahan said.Monday morning’s evaluation was a gut-reaction sort of thing, based on anecdotal input. Organizers are still waiting for the attendance figures, as well as other key numbers like expenses and income.

Passers-by hold their mobile phones as people take a selfie photo using a smartphone, with Singapore’s central business district skyline, in Singapore, May 10, 2019.ReutersProtecting Singapore against rising sea levels could cost S$100 billion ($72 billion) or more over 100 years, its prime minister said on Sunday, as the low-lying island-state makes preparations to mitigate the impact of global warming.”How much will it cost to protect ourselves against rising sea levels? My guess is probably S$100 billion over 100 years, quite possibly more,” Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said.Lee said Singapore’s future options include building polders, areas of land reclaimed from a body of water, or reclaiming a series of islands offshore and connecting them with barrages.Singapore’s has already taken some action, including introducing a carbon tax and requiring future critical infrastructure like its new airport terminal and port to be built on higher ground.Earlier this year, the government said it would spend S$400 million over the next two years to upgrade and maintain the country’s drains and strengthen its flood resilience.The prime minister made the comments in his annual National Day Rally speech, in which he laid out policies and priorities for the government.In the speech, he also said Singapore would gradually raise its retirement age by three years to 65.The retirement age will rise to 63 in 2022 from the current retirement age of 62 and to 65 by 2030, Lee said.Singapore, which has the longest life expectancy at birth in the world, is growing more dependent on its older residents as birth rates fall and foreign labour is restricted.”Most seniors in fact don’t want to stop working,” the prime minister said. “We are healthy for longer and living longer, but we don’t want to spend more years in retirement.””Also many of us want to build up a bigger nest egg for when we eventually retire.”Singapore will also raise its so-called re-employment age from 67 to 70 by 2030. Under the re-employment law, companies in Singapore are required to offer eligible employees the option of continuing to work until they are 67.Lee said the public service will raise its retirement and re-employment ages one year earlier in 2021.Singapore is facing slowing growth prospects this year. It cut its full-year economic growth forecast last week amid fears of recession in the city-state that has been hit hard by the China-US trade war.Lee said should US-China relations continue to deteriorate, it was bad news for Singapore. He said that while the current situation did not warrant immediate stimulus measures, the government would respond with appropriate interventions if the situation got much worse.
Following radiation, the bone marrow shows nearly complete loss of blood cells in mice (left). Mice treated with the PTP-sigma inhibitor displayed rapid recovery of blood cells (purple, right). Credit: UCLA Broad Stem Cell Research Center/Nature Communications March 4, 2015 — The International Lymphoma Radiation Oncology Group (ILROG) has issued a guideline outlining the use of 3-D computed tomography (CT)-based radiation therapy planning and volumetric image guidance for treatment of pediatric Hodgkin lymphoma. The goal of the new guideline is to reduce the radiation dose to normal tissue, thus decreasing the risk of late side effects. The guideline will be published in the March-April issue of Practical Radiation Oncology (PRO), the clinical practice journal of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO).Historically, pediatric Hodgkin lymphoma patients were treated with the same chemotherapy and radiation regimens as adults, which potentially exposes their young, still-growing bodies to more treatment than necessary. Previous radiation therapy guidelines for pediatric Hodgkin lymphoma have focused on 2-D imaging and bony landmarks to define dose volumes for radiation therapy treatment, and treated large volumes of normal tissue in part because of uncertainty about which lymph node areas were involved. The new guideline describes how to effectively use modern imaging and innovations in radiation therapy planning technology to treat patients with pediatric Hodgkin lymphoma while decreasing the risk of late side effects, including second cancers and heart disease.The authors describe methods for identifying target volumes for radiation therapy, and how to implement the concept of “involved site radiation therapy” to define radiation target volumes and limit dose to normal organs at risk. According to the guideline, accurate assessment of the extent and location of disease requires both contrast-enhanced CT as well as fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET). The document describes how the evaluation of response to chemotherapy influences the targeting of the lymphoma and the volume of normal tissue treated, by using recently developed capacity to fuse CT and FDG-PET images taken before and after chemotherapy to CT imaging taken for radiation therapy planning.“The emergence of new imaging technologies, more accurate ways of delivering radiation therapy and more detailed patient selection criteria have made a significant change in our ability to customize treatment for many cancer patients,” said David C. Hodgson, M.D., associate professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Toronto in Toronto, a radiation oncologist at Princess Margaret Hospital/University Health Network in Toronto and lead author of the guideline. “This guideline has the potential to reduce the radiation therapy breast dose by about 80 percent and the heart dose by about 65 percent for an adolescent girl with Hodgkin lymphoma. This shift in more personalized treatment planning tailored to the individual patient’s disease will optimize risk-benefit considerations for our patients, and reduce the likelihood that they will suffer late effects from radiation therapy. We are also excited that these guidelines will be utilized in an upcoming Children’s Oncology Group Study of involved-site radiation therapy for high-risk Hodgkin lymphoma patients and eagerly await the study’s results.”For more information: www.astro.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center expansion is expected to be completed in 2023.
