Local and Overseas Companies Bid for Renewable Energy Project

first_imgA total of 28 proposals have been submitted to the Office of Utilities Regulation (OUR) for the development of projects aimed at generating up to 115 megawatts (MW) of energy from renewable sources.The submissions, from 20 local and overseas companies, were revealed during a public opening of bid documents on Monday, June 3, at the OUR’s New Kingston offices, minutes after the 3:00 p.m. closure of bids.The proposals included two for wind projects, one for biomass, and 25 for solar energy. Eight of the proposals were received from local companies.The 115 MW of renewable energy is expected to provide some 400,000 MW hours of electricity per year, which could potentially reduce Jamaica’s oil import expenditure by US$55 million.Project Manager at the OUR, Peter Johnson, said the high level of interest in the project is very encouraging.“We are hoping that these proposals will actually bear fruit and that we will get some good solutions out of them,” he stated.Mr. Johnson said as part of the National Energy Policy, the Government is seeking to increase the amount of electricity generated from renewable sources in Jamaica.“This is the first tranche of that and we’re very excited with what we have seen,” he said.The Project Manager said with the bids in hands, the OUR will now move towards the evaluation processes, which should be completed by August 5.“The evaluation will look at the best proposals in terms of the best reliability, the best price and will also look to see if one proposal or a combination of proposals will best fit the needs of the country,” he informed.The highest ranked applications will be notified on September 11.The OUR is looking to complete the negotiation of project agreements by June 18, 2014. The selected applicants are expected to post their performance security deposit by June 28, 2014, and begin construction in August 2014. The proposed commissioning date is August 2016.Proposals have been tendered from a mixture of local and overseas companies, including WRB Enterprises; Wirsol AG and Roc Energy Ltd.; Armorview Holdings Ltd.; the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (PCJ); Wigton Windfarm Limited; Deneb Ltd.; Blue Mountain Renewables; BNRG Renewables Jamaica Ltd.; Roraima Consulting Incorporated; and Optimal Energy.In its proposal, the PCJ submitted a 20.98 megawatt photovoltaic solar generating project at a cost of more than US$63.16 million, while Wigton Windfarm has submitted a proposal for a 24-megawatt wind energy power generation project, at a cost of US$45 million.Blue Mountain Renewables submitted a 34-megawatt wind power generation project for approximately US$77 million; overseas investor, Wirsol AG and Roc Energy Ltd. have tendered a proposal for a 78-megawatt solar park power generation project at a cost of some US$140 million; and New York-based entity, Roraima Consulting Incorporated, submitted a bid for a 24-megawatt solar power generating project, at a cost of approximately US$59 million.A request for proposals (RFP) was issued by the OUR in November 2012, when it invited interested entities to submit bids for the supply of up to 115MW of renewable energy electricity generation to the national grid on a Build Own and Operate (BOO) basis.Contact: Athaliah Reynolds-Bakerlast_img read more

Man killed daughter to make his estranged wife suffer Crown tells murder

first_imgST. JOHN’S, N.L. — A Crown prosecutor says a Newfoundland man murdered his five-year-old daughter in a calculated plan to inflict suffering on her mother, his estranged wife.A St. John’s, N.L., court heard closing arguments today in the first-degree murder trial of Trent Butt, who is accused of the first-degree murder of his daughter Quinn in his Carbonear, N.L., home in April 2016.Butt testified earlier that he did not remember killing Quinn, but said he found himself over her body and concluded he must have suffocated her.Crown lawyer Lloyd Strickland pointed to a suicide note Butt wrote as proof that he planned to kill Quinn to keep her from her mother.Butt’s lawyer, Derek Hogan, argued the letter outlined a plan for suicide and not murder, leaving reasons to doubt whether Butt planned the killing in advance.The jury has begun its deliberations.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Stars To Be Honored By Black AIDS InstituteHeroes in the Struggle

first_imgThe Black AIDS Institute inducts a select group of individuals and organizations that have made commendable heroic contributions to the fight against HIV/AIDS in Black America.The 16th Annual Heroes in the Struggle Awards Presentation & Reception will be held on September 16, 2017 at the Darryl F. Zanuck Theater at 20th Century Fox Studios in Los Angeles at 6:00 PM.The 2017 inductees include Taraji P. Henson, Laverne Cox, Vanessa Williams, Alfre Woodard, Gina Belafonte, and Gina Brown. The 2017 Corporate Hero is Novant Health. Black AIDS Institute Board Member Jussie Smollett serves as Chair and Host. The 2017 theme is Black Men Honoring Black Women and celebrated R&B singer/songwriter Ledisi performs a special tribute. The awards presentation is produced by Russelli & Hall.“At the age of fifteen, I began working with the Black AIDS Institute and I am proud to be a member of the Board of Directors,” said Jussie Smollett. “Although it is not spoken about like it used to, the AIDS epidemic is not over, especially in Black communities. I am humbled to pay tribute to these remarkable women in our community.”Nearly 100 individuals have been inducted into the Heroes in the Struggle Hall of Fame over the last 16 years. It is a photographic tribute to HIV/AIDS allies; elected officials and policy makers; artists from television, film, stage and music; civil rights leaders; health-care providers; advocates and activists; and people living with HIV/AIDS. Since its debut in 2002, the exhibit has traveled the world — raising awareness; challenging Black Americans, key thought leaders and institutions to get involved in their communities; and generating critical conversation about HIV stigma, testing, prevention, treatment and care.“Black women are the single most important engine in the survival of Black people, including with HIV/AIDS,” said Phill Wilson, President and CEO of the Black AIDS Institute. “59% of women living with HIV in the United States are Black. Black women account for 60% of the new HIV infections among women, and are 16 times more likely to be diagnosed with HIV than white women. This event not only allows us to acknowledge the invaluable role Black women have played in the AIDS fight, but it helps raise awareness about the devastating impact AIDS continues to have on Black women and the opportunities we have to turn that around if Black men and women work together.”Tickets and sponsorship packages are priced at various levels, from VIP packages to a limited number of community seats for as little as $75.00. “Because the event is completely underwritten by major donors, every penny raised goes directly into efforts to end the epidemic, help people get into care and stay in care, protect themselves from HIV infections, and advocate for sound HIV/AIDS policies,” said Wilson.For more information about purchasing tickets, becoming a sponsor, joining the host committee, or placing an advertisement in the program book, go to or contact Wendell Miller.last_img read more

India boasts world’s 2nd largest start-up ecosystem

first_imgUnited Nations: India has the second largest start-up ecosystem in the world and the median age of founders of these enterprises is only 31 years, a youth delegate from India said at the UN. India’s young population is scripting remarkable success stories, said youth delegate Seema Pujani at an interactive round-table on ‘Looking to the Future: A dialogue on the High-level Political Forum (SDG) Summit’ during the ECOSOC Youth Forum here on Tuesday. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalIndia today has the second largest start-up ecosystem in the world, she said. “With a median age of about 29 years, India is one of the youngest countries in the world. As a substantial segment of the Indian electorate, the youth stand to influence policymaking in the country. “The median age of founders of these enterprises is only 31 years. Youth in India are also behind forging new alliances and partnerships across the government, civil society, business and academia which are critical for achievement of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs),” Pujani said. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostYoung Indians are overcoming challenges and shining bright in all walks of life, she said. “Be they athletes like Dipa Karmakar and Hima Das or countless young entrepreneurs, artists, authors, engineers, doctors, lawyers and civil servants, India’s young population is scripting remarkable success stories and making confident strides into the future,” the youth delegate said. Pujani pointed out that youth empowerment and inclusive social development are at the heart of flagship programmes of the Indian government that seek to target gender equality, increased access to financial services, digital connectivity, skill development and higher education, universal health coverage, sanitation and housing for all. India is also among one of the first countries to launch a comprehensive programme for its 250 million adolescent population, focusing on reproductive and menstrual health, she said, adding that so far, close to 7300 Adolescent Friendly Health Clinics have been established and around six million adolescents availed services in a year in the country. Pujani stressed that even as individual countries make their own efforts, international political commitment and resource mobilisation towards capacity building and technology transfer in the areas of education, health and employment generation would have to be forthcoming. “This is an integral part of 2030 Agenda. We hope that collectively we can make the right choices in realising full potential of today’s youth and ensuring sustainable future for all,” she said. On combating climate change, she said that in India, the aim is to achieve development in a sustainable manner by harnessing renewable energy and efficient use of resources. Despite the country’s huge developmental challenges and limited availability of energy, it is taking leadership in this area including international initiatives such as the International Solar Alliance, Pujani said. “Our domestic efforts in expanding solar power have already brought down unit costs substantially to make it competitive. Young people in India are taking leadership role in environmental conservation, especially in the area of waste management,” she said, adding that global action based on equity is crucial to combat climate change and achieve sustainable development envisaged in 2030 Agenda.last_img read more

Enbridge grapples with pipeline shutdown weekend spill in northern Alberta

by The Canadian Press Posted Jun 24, 2013 7:46 am MDT Enbridge grapples with pipeline shutdown, weekend spill in northern Alberta AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email CALGARY – Enbridge Inc. (TSX:ENB) is coping with a weekend spill of synthetic crude in northern Alberta as its head office remains closed due to severe flooding in the southern part of the province.The spill from Line 37, about 70 kilometres southeast of Fort McMurray, Alta., caused Enbridge to shut down its Athabasca and Waupisoo pipelines — a major part of the network that serves Alberta’s oilsands.The 540-kilometre Athabasca line can carry up to 570,000 barrels per day of crude from the Athabasca and Cold Lake regions to Hardisty, Alta., a major pipeline hub in eastern Alberta, about 200 kilometres southeast of Edmonton.The Waupisoo line can carry up to 600,000 barrels per day to Edmonton from Cheecham Terminal, near the site of the spill.The company detected the Line 37 spill early Saturday and initially estimated that between 500 and 750 barrels of oil had spilled.Enbridge said unusually heavy rains may have resulted in a ground movement that affected Line 37, a 17-kilometre-long, 12-inch diameter pipe linking the Long Lake oilsands upgrader with the Athabasca system.Clean-up crews remain on site, and that the oil has been contained, the company said.No wildlife has been affected by the spill, said Enbridge spokesman Todd Nogier.“We’re committed to thoroughly cleaning up the site as quickly as possible and ensuring the safety of the residents, environment, wildlife, contractors, and employees,” said Nogier in an email.The release of crude comes as Alberta grapples with major flooding, including in the city of Calgary where Enbridge has its head office, which has been closed until it’s safe for employees to return.Enbridge also said that control, monitoring and operation of its liquids pipelines network is based in Edmonton and not been affected by the flooding in southern Alberta.The Alberta Energy Regulator said late Sunday that it was working on the problem but hadn’t confirmed the company’s estimate that between 500 and 750 barrels of oil had spilled.The AES said Enbridge had installed wildlife deterrents and contracted environmental consultants to conduct water sampling and a wildlife survey.It said there had been no impact on wildlife observed as of Sunday.Enbridge’s stock was down 87 cents or two per cent on Monday to close at $42.64. read more

Wimbledon doubles size of Murray Mound screen for fans to watch the

Andy Murray will playCredit:Eddie Mulholland for The Telegraph Walking past the still-empty hill this week on his way to the practice courts Roger Federer, eight times men’s singles champion, joked: “Henman Hill, the famous Henman Hill! Where is he? Where is Tim?” For tennis fans who can’t afford to get their hands on Centre Court and Number One Court tickets it is the best place from where to watch the action.So much so that whether you call it Henman Hill or prefer its later incarnation as Murray Mound, the slope rising above the grounds of the All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) has become one of the great sporting locations in its own right.And this year the atmosphere on the hill is likely to be more exuberant than ever.The AELTC has erected an even bigger screen in front of the hill for fans to watch the live action.The screen on which matches are shown has this year been doubled in size, from six by nine metres to six by 18 metres, making it one of the biggest permanent outdoor screens in the country.So popular is a place on Henman Hill that picnic tables have also been placed at the foot of the hill to allow dozens more spectators to view matches and a bank of seating has been erected at the top to try and ease the pressure for places on the grass slopes. Figures from Google yesterday show that more people still prefer to use Henman Hill than Murray Mound, with three times as many people searching for it under that name.The AELTC points out that the official name of the hill has always been Aorangi Terrace.But of course nobody remembers that.Additional reporting by Toby Wallis The AELTC said: “As an international sporting event, we want to ensure the best possible experience for all our visitors and that’s why the second year of the No.1 Court Project has seen the completion of the new fixed roof, the opening of “The Walled Garden” – a new two-level public plaza, a new, a larger Big Screen for The Hill and the refurbishment of seven hospitality suites.”The hill has been a place of highs and lows for fans, from enduring Tim Henman’s quarter finals defeat at the hands of Frenchman Sebastien Grosjean in 2003, to witnessing Andy Murray becoming the first British man to win the single’s title for 77 years in 2013.There are even some who prefer to bag a place on the hill than a seat courtside and whenever a Brit starts to do well at Wimbledon there is talk of changing its name to match.With Kyle Edmund reaching the semi-finals of the Australian Open in January this year and becoming Britain’s No. 1, some have even suggested renaming the hill as Edmund’s Embankment or even the Edmound for this year’s Wimbledon championships.That’s unlikely to catch on – unless he wins of course.

On top of that a number of new restaurants and cafes have opened beneath No 1 Court, close to the mound, making it easier for the fans on the hill to keep themselves replenished during some of the championship’s gripping five set games.

Bouziane et al. May 21, 2014 — A study conducted at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School found that estimated radiation doses are substantially lower for pediatric computed tomography (CT) exams of the brain that used an adaptive statistical iterative reconstruction technique (ASIR) compared to those that did not use ASIR. The researchers found that the brain and salivary gland doses were much lower for ASIR-enabled exams compared to those without ASIR technique. However, no differences in the estimated organ doses were found for the thyroid gland, skeleton and eye lenses across these two cohorts of CT exams.”CT radiation dose is an important concern with all imaging sites, especially for children,” said Ranish Deedar Ali Khawaja. “We performed this study to do a preliminary analysis of pediatric head CT examinations and to assess the factors influencing radiation doses.”Mean radiation dose was 1.6 ± 1.5 mSv (estimated effective dose) in pediatric head CT. In addition to the iterative reconstruction algorithm, patient age and effective body diameter significantly affected the doses.Dr. Khawaja and his fellow researchers presented the study on May 7 at the 2014 ARRS Annual Meeting in San Diego, CA.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Sponsored Content | Case Study | Radiation Dose Management | August 13, 2019 The Challenge of Pediatric Radiation Dose Management Radiation dose management is central to child patient safety.

Political pundit complains about fourlegged seatmate gets destroyed on Twitter

first_img Share NEW YORK — Twitter strikes again, effectively shaming a well-known political pundit for complaining about sitting next to a dog on a plane. But not just any dog, mind you. This one sported a bow tie and a goofy, lovable grin, effectively making him the world’s most adorable pooch.The pundit in question is Mark Halperin, a senior political analyst for NBC News who recently flew a Delta red-eye flight. Despite the many comforts that come with flying first class, Halperin took to Twitter to complain about his seatmate: a bernedoodle named Charlie who showed up for his flight dressed to the nines in a pink bow tie.Seriously, @delta??!?— Mark Halperin (@MarkHalperin) April 22, 2017According to Slate, Charlie was flying in his own seat next to his human, Delta flight attendant Anthony Pisano, and was temporarily positioned between Pisano’s legs when Halperin tweeted a photo with the caption “Seriously, @delta??!?” But rather than finding support in Twitter-land, Halperin was eviscerated by people who quickly came to Charlie’s defense.More news:  A new low for no-frills flying: easyJet assigns backless seat to passenger@david_j_roth wrote, “Wait are you somehow bothered by this?” while @HollyAnderson hilariously tweeted, “hope the dog asked to be moved”. @mampdx called out Halperin personally, saying that she “can’t believe they inconvenienced that dapper dog by allowing you on the plane”.After getting a beating on Twitter, Halperin appeared to backtrack on his comment, tweeting: “We were abt to take off on redeye. Dog was cute. I was sharing pix & expressing surprise owner/dog hadn’t been put 2gether.”According to Pisano, the seats were arranged A-BC-D, with Charlie sitting in 6A, Pisano in 6B and Halperin in 6C. He said Halperin called a flight attendant over because he refused to sit next to a dog. The attendant then asked Pisano if Halperin and Charlie could switch seats so that Halperin could sit by himself. He agreed, but also noted that Halperin was rude and refused to look at him as they switched.Whether Halperin really was just surprised by the separation of man and his best friend, there’s one thing we can all agree on: Charlie just won the Internet. We’re betting he’ll have his own Twitter account in the days to come.

Haiti elections A vote without violence in a field of 54 presidential

first_imgRelated posts:US Secretary of State Kerry presses Haitian president on long-delayed elections Haiti opposition cautiously welcomes PM’s resignation US urges Haiti leaders to hold elections soon Haiti postpones presidential runoff vote PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – Haitians voted for a new president Sunday as the poorest country in the Americas seeks to shed chronic political instability and get back on its feet.Though voting unfolded in a climate of uncertainty, there was a large turnout without major incidents as Haitians cast their ballots to choose a new president, lawmakers and local officials.In Port-au-Prince, people stood in long lines outside polling stations, a sight unseen in Haiti in more than a decade.This marked a major change compared to the last voting day, when two people were killed in sporadic violence in August.Authorities took precautions as a result, with police deploying some 10,000 officers, backed by 5,000 from the U.N. peacekeeping force MINUSTAH in a bid to keep matters under control.“On August 9, I had left home to go vote, but I saw people pushing each other around, people causing mayhem and throwing things. So I turned around because I didn’t want to have bottles thrown at me,” said Franzty Jeudi.“Today, it’s going really well. I came to vote with my parents and we are at ease,” said the smiling 26-year-old.Despite delays caused by logistical challenges, voters waited calmly under sunny skies to cast their ballots.Some expressed hope that the polls — the only one of several recent Haiti elections to take place on schedule — could bring change. Results, however, are not expected before early November.At the large Canape-Vert market, in the heart of the capital, Electoral Council workers checked voters’ identification cards.“The police had a good strategy. I’m satisfied. They corrected a lot of things since August,” said Willy Saint-Fort after casting his vote in one of the four ballot boxes placed set up in a stall where fruits and vegetables are usually sold.“Enough with provisional governments and violence,” added Saint-Fort, 43. Haitian President Michel Martelly receives his ballot to vote at a polling station in the Lycee National de Petionville, in Port-au-Prince, on Oct. 25, 2015. Hector Retamal/AFP‘Great success’At a small public school near the Champ de Mars, housing the presidential palace, voters expressed the same confidence.“This election took place without any irregularities,” said Frantz Philemon. “We expressed our wishes as citizens for difference in our country. It was a great success.”By midday, 73 arrests had been made, with those taken into custody in possession of multiple voting cards or fake proxy papers, according to police.“The police are in control of the situation,” police spokesman Frantz Lerebours told AFP. “There were several attempts to disrupt voting but the officers immediately stopped those attempts.”The elections come nearly five years after President Michel Martelly came to power in a country that has failed to find democratic stability since the end of the 30-year Duvalier dictatorship in 1986.The pop singer and political novice assumed office in 2011, the year after a catastrophic earthquake killed more than 200,000, flattened most buildings in the capital and left hundreds of thousands living on the streets.Five years on, more than 85,000 people still live in makeshift camps, according to Amnesty International.And a nagging conflict between the executive branch and the opposition since Martelly came to power delayed the staging of legislative polls for years. Election officials count ballots at a polling station in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, on Oct. 25, 2015 during the general elections. Though voting unfolded in a climate of uncertainty, there was a large turnout without major incidents. Hector Retamal/AFPDozens of contendersFifty-four candidates are running for Haiti’s highest office and a chance to lift the destitute nation out of its systemic poverty. But that abundance of hopefuls is not a sign of democratic health.  Most are unknown to the general public, and only a handful have released policy platforms.“The debates were shallow. The candidates only spoke in generalities. None of them showed that they are in a position to manage the situation well,” said Haitian economist Kesner Pharel.One of the few candidates to emerge from the crowded field is Jude Celestin, of the LAPEH party, who was eliminated from the second round in the controversial 2010 vote following an OAS recount and is considered the frontrunner this time.“We are headed straight for a victory at the first round,” Celestin told AFP as he voted at the school in Petionville Sunday morning, urging supporters to keep turning out, and to do so peacefully.But there is also a groundswell of support in some areas for Maryse Narcisse, a physician and longtime activist of the Fanmi Lavalas party.Narcisse has the powerful and very public backing of former president Jean-Bertrand Aristide — and for some Haitians, that is enough. Aristide, a divisive figure who returned from exile in 2011, is revered among the many poor in the capital.Whoever takes over from Martelly on Feb. 7 will face huge challenges and a humanitarian emergency.Six million of Haiti’s 10 million people live in extreme poverty, getting by on less than $2.50 a day.

Customer Service Matters – My cards been charged

first_imgSource = Customer Service Matters – My card’s been chargedMy Card has been chargedThis phrase is becoming more and more common, especially with the boom of online shopping.  It’s funny how trusting we are when it comes to providing our credit card information over the internet. Not a second thought is given – less than 15 years ago this would be absurd.When checking into a hotel, the mandatory “incidentals” hold charge is applied, a common practice for decades to ensure rooms aren’t trashed, raided mini bars are paid for and items in the room aren’t stolen – bath robes, coat hangers, light fittings and in the extreme case – grand pianos!From the hotels perspective it’s risk management 101.Prevention is better than than trying to fix something.  The amount of times I had stood at a check in desk to hear a customer question “why the hell do you need to charge my card” tells me that not enough agents are preparing their customers.  Tell them what to expect.Fees can range from $80-$100 and are held as a temporary charge and should be released back onto the credit card after check-out. In most cases, they also do not affect the available balance on a card.  Pax will say it doesn’t, but your bank will tell you the truth.However there have been cases where the hotel has either held onto the charge for weeks, sometimes months after the traveller has checked out – if you’re checking into multiple hotels within a short amount of time, this extra amount can be seen to eat away from your spending money.On occasion though, well, pax just forget the massage, the gin in the foyer or the extra service they approved.  A little prompt of “forgive me for asking, but is there any chance you bought something else whilst you were there?” might be enough to jog a memory.From my experience, it’s always worthwhile informing the traveler before their travels. This will ensure there aren’t any surprises and to also factor in this extra amount just in case the hotels are slow to refund the amount back onto their credit card. roomsXML – More Suppliers, Hot Deals learn more about herelast_img read more
