BC First Nations urge province not to cherrypick from mine report advice

by Geordon Omand, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 3, 2015 5:59 pm MDT B.C. First Nations urge province not to cherry-pick from mine report advice AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email VANCOUVER – First Nations leaders are urging the B.C. government to adopt each of the seven recommendations laid out in a review of the Mount Polley mine disaster.First Nations Summit Grand Chief Ed John said the resulting “massive breach of public confidence” means the province cannot afford to cherry-pick from the conclusions of a report into a tailings dam failure in the province’s Interior.John made the comments Tuesday, the same day Imperial Metals Corp. (TSX:III) announced conservation and fisheries’ officers served search warrants on the company’s headquarters and Mount Polley offices as part of an investigation into possible breaches of the Fisheries Act.“I think when you mix water and tailings it’s a recipe for disaster,” John told a news conference Tuesday, commending the work of a government-ordered expert panel that blamed poor dam design for the collapse at the open pit gold and copper mine.The report, released last week, said building the mine’s tailings site on a sloped glacial lake failed to account for drainage and erosion.It likened the ad hoc approach to the pond’s design and construction to loading a gun and pulling the trigger.“We urge the province of British Columbia … to know and understand this is not a smorgasbord,” said Grand Chief Stewart Philip of the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs about the seven recommendations.He called on the B.C. government to take immediate action in implementing the panel’s conclusions.“There has to be serious mining reform, there has to be safer oversight,” he said, adding the need for an overhaul of the regulatory regime.Meantime, the company said it understands that warrants are a normal means of investigation and it has co-operated fully with the regulatory authorities.The dam’s collapse in the early hours of Aug. 4 last year sent 24 million cubic metres of wastewater gushing into nearby lakes and streams in an event Philip described as one of the worst disasters in Canadian mining history.The failure could not have happened at a worse time, said Xat’sull Chief Bev Sellars, describing the impact on the Fraser River’s migrating salmon population.“Very few people fished in the river this year,” she said. “There were a lot of empty freezers and a lot of empty smokehouses.”She described the absence of First Nations participation in the province’s mining industry as a “huge gap.”“The First Nations are not involved when these decisions are made and we’re going to change that.”Imperial Metals Corp. has said the tailings pond storage facility was constructed in accordance with engineering standards.The company said the panel report stated the weaker glacial till was found eight metres below the dam’s surface, much deeper than assumed by the design criteria.Mines Minister Bill Bennett said in a statement that the government will require all mines with tailing storage facilities to establish independent tailings dam review boards.There are currently 98 permitted tailings storage facilities in the province, with 123 dams at 60 metal and coal mines in B.C.Bennett said the government would also establish a review group, which would include First Nations representation, to discuss implementing the remaining panel recommendations.The province is awaiting results of two other reports on the Mount Polley mine disaster — one from the chief inspector of mines and another from the Conservation Officer Service. Both are expected to be released sometime this summer. read more

UN relief officials sound alarm over deepening food insecurity in Palestine

Preliminary results of a joint UN survey carried out by the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics, the World Food Programme (WFP), the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) found that 1.6 million people – or 34 per cent of households – were food insecure in 2012. This represents a “dramatic” rise from 27 per cent in 2011, stated a joint news release from WFP and UNRWA. Contributing factors include high unemployment rates, stagnant economic growth, the financial problems of the Palestinian Authority, the continued Israeli occupation of the West Bank and the six-year blockade of Gaza.WFP Executive Director Ertharin Cousin and UNRWA Commissioner-General Filippo Grandi today visited a Bedouin village between Jerusalem and Jericho where a food distribution carried out jointly by the two agencies was taking place.“High food prices and low wages mean that 1.6 million Palestinians don’t know from where their next meal is coming,” said Ms. Cousin. “Yet food security is security. Food security is a vital component for sustained peace across the region.” Ms. Cousin also welcomed a new agreement with UNRWA that will strengthen cooperation in Palestine and throughout the region and address the urgent needs of the population.In nearby Jericho, she met shoppers using electronic vouchers from WFP to buy olive oil, salt and other groceries, most of which are produced locally in Palestine. In the past three years, WFP has injected more than $100 million into the Palestinian economy through local purchase and the redemption of electronic food vouchers. This investment supports local businesses and generates employment.WFP reaches approximately 650,000 food-insecure, non-refugee households in Palestine. Meanwhile, UNRWA provides food assistance to more than one million food-insecure Palestine refugees across the Middle East.During the visit to the village of Khan al Ahmar, the two officials signed a Memorandum of Understanding, in an agreement which will deepen and expand ties between their agencies.“As well as cooperating more in the fields of food security and nutrition, we can share expertise in logistics, supply chain management and other initiatives, not just in Palestine, but regionally, particularly as we face up to the challenge of the Syria crisis,” said Mr. Grandi. read more

Blue Jackets prepare for St Louis Blues

Following the Blue Jackets’ 5-3 loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday, left winger R.J. Umberger was already looking ahead to Tuesday’s game against the St. Louis Blues. “We really want to come out and get a win against St. Louis,” Umberger said. “That’s a team we love to beat.” Defeating the Blues will be no small task for the Blue Jackets. Following a 3-0 victory against the San Jose Sharks on Sunday, St. Louis has 75 points, good for third place in the National Hockey League standings and second place behind the Detroit Red Wings in the Central Division of the Western Conference. The Blues have been, arguably, one of the best teams all season since former Blue Jackets’ coach Ken Hitchcock took over in early November. Under Hitchcock, the Blues have gone 21-5-6. The Blues’ have compiled their record behind the prowess of the goaltending tandem of Brian Elliott and Jaroslav Halak. Halak is tied for the NHL lead in shutouts with six and Elliot is close behind with five. It could be argued that Hitchcock’s defense-first system is responsible for the stellar goaltending that the Blues’ have seen this season, but the fact remains that the Blue Jackets could have a hard time scoring in Tuesday’s game. On the other end of this goaltending spectrum is Blue Jackets’ goalie Steve Mason, who looks like he will be getting his third straight start, with the Blue Jackets’ other goalie, Curtis Sanford, out indefinitely with a back ailment. Mason has long been the brunt of criticism this season, and has done nothing with his play to put his critics to rest. Interim coach Todd Richards said he was happy with Mason’s effort after Sunday’s game against the Ducks, despite the fact that Mason gave up five goals. “I thought he gave us a chance,” Richards said following the game. “There’s only certain things he can control.” Mason will be key to giving the Blue Jackets’ a chance on Tuesday. If he can’t keep the score close, the Blues’ defensive system might prove to be too much for the Blue Jackets’ offense. Another key to the game will be the Jackets’ power play. It is the one point of consistency that the Blue Jackets’ seem to have found. Following the game against the Ducks’ in which the Blue Jackets recorded two power-play tallies, they now have seven power-play goals in their last five games. Richards credited the success of his team’s power play to their ability to hold on to the puck. “We’re able to retain possession of the puck,” he said. “We’re scoring in a lot of different ways.” Blue Jackets’ defenseman James Wisniewski said after Sunday’s game that it was time for the team to look “deep down.” The game against the Blues will prove whether the team takes this message to heart. Puck drop is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday at Nationwide Arena. read more

In all, police recovered eight terabytes of data from Ullah’s computers.Commander Dean Haydon, counter terrorism command, said: “Just because Ullah’s activity was in the virtual world we never underestimated how dangerous his activity was.He sat in his bedroom in Wales and created online content with the sole intention of aiding people who wanted to actively support ISIS and avoid getting caught by the authorities.Sue Hemming, from the Crown Prosecution Service’s counter terrorism division, said: “Left unchecked, the actions of Sumata Ullah could well have helped others carry out further terrorist attacks either in the UK or abroad.Ullah wrongly assumed he could hide behind the perceived anonymity of the online world to help the planning of terrorist attacks. However, prosecutors worked with police to build a strong case that left Ullah with little option but to admit his offending.He was sentenced to eight years in prison at London’s Old Bailey today, with a further five on licence.Read: Dublin Lord Mayor calls for Home Sweet Home to donate remaining €129,000 to homeless charitiesRead: Renua are claiming Luas works make O’Connell St ‘look like 1916’ 16 Comments Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Share Tweet Email1 center_img Image: Metropolitan Police PA Wire/PA Images ISIS cyber criminal who hid USB drive in cufflinks sentenced to 8 years in prison Samata Allah was alleged to have assisted IS in spreading its propaganda online.

COPY LINKAD Loading … Mukesh Ambani helped his younger brother Anil Ambani to pay off debt owed to Sweden’s Ericssoncenter_img It seems family comes first for Indian billionaires. In the latest instance of a billionaire rescuing a younger sibling, ArcelorMittal Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Lakshmi Niwas Mittal has helped younger brother Pramod Mittal clear a significant portion of 22.1-bln-rupee dues to State Trading Corp of India. The revelation comes just a week after Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani helped sibling Anil Ambani pay 5.5 billion rupees to telecom gear maker Ericsson and avoid a possible jail term of three months.Even though the Mittal brothers had split the business in 1994, eldest brother Lakshmi Niwas chipped in with 16 billion rupees to help Pramod clear STC’s dues. “It’s true that Lakshmi stepped in to ensure there were no proceedings as a result of liabilities to STC. I believe there was a payment in November and another one in February. Family is very important to him (Lakshmi) so it’s not surprising he would help his brother out,” a friend of the billionaire told the Business Standard. Pramod is the middle brother and Vinod the youngest of the three Mittal brothers. Lakshmi Mittal, chief executive officer of ArcelorMittal.ReutersLakshmi Niwas Mittal controls the largest steel manufacturing company in the world—ArcelorMittal—with operations in 60 countries and revenues of over $76 billion. Recently, Mittal was ranked 91st on the Forbes Billionaires List with a net worth of around $13 billion.Case HistoryAfter Pramod and his firms cleared STC’s dues, the government-owned trading firm said it would not pursue any more winding up proceedings against Global Steel Holdings Ltd. The Enforcement Directorate had initiated various criminal proceedings against Pramod, GSHL, Global Steel Philippines Inc and Balasore Alloys and the Central Bureau of Investigation had filed an FIR in the case. The enforcement agency has quashed all proceedings against the firms and Pramod after dues were cleared.Pramod’s companies GSHL and GSPI had business relations with STC since 2003 but a slowdown in the global steel industry and the global economic crisis in 2008 led to the companies suffering huge losses. After the steelmakers failed to clear STC’s dues, the state-owned company had filed diverse proceedings against GSHL, GSPI, Pramod and some other people to recover the amount. Coils of steel are seen at an ArcelorMittal Factory in Florange, France, in this file photo. REUTERS/Vincent Kessler/File Photo”Pramod Mittal has paid and /or caused to be paid an aggregate sum of 22.1 billion rupees to STC, inclusive of the aforesaid 16.05 billion rupees as well as post-award interest, in full and final settlement of STC’s claim. In the circumstances, no amount is due and payable to STC by GSHL, GSPI or Pramod Mittal,” GSHL had said in a statement. As per the terms of the reconciliation agreement between STC and GSHL and GSPI, a sum of 16.1 billion rupees, inclusive of principal and interest at 13.5% per annum on US dollar benchmark rates was awarded to STC and was to be paid by the steel companies as principal debtors and Pramod Mittal as guarantor.last_img read more

China to close chemical park where explosion killed 78

first_imgThe Chinese chemical industry park where an explosion last month killed 78 people and left hundreds injured will be closed, authorities have said.The blast in Yancheng city, eastern Jiangsu province, was one of the worst industrial accidents in the country in recent years, razing buildings nearby and blowing out the windows of surrounding homes. Authorities evacuated thousands of residents.The decision to close the Xiangshui Chemical Industry Park was made Thursday by the local government, state broadcaster CCTV reported on Friday.Jiangsu province will also begin closing chemical plants, with the number of producers to be cut roughly in half by 2020, news site The Paper reported.Local authorities said Tuesday 187 people hurt in the blast remained in hospital with two in critical condition.Three employees from the firm Jiangsu Tianjiayi Chemical, whose facility was involved in the blast, have been detained by police.They bore “significant responsibility” for the accident, according to a statement on the Yancheng government’s official Twitter-like Weibo account.The company, with 195 employees, was established in 2007 and mainly produced raw chemical materials including anisole, a highly flammable compound.It had a history of violating environmental regulations, according to online records from Yancheng city’s environment and ecology bureau.Deadly industrial accidents are common in China, where safety regulations are often poorly enforced.In November, a gas leak at a plant in the northern Chinese city of Zhangjiakou — which will host the 2022 Winter Olympics — killed 24 people and injured 21 others.In 2015, China saw one of its worst industrial accidents when giant chemical blasts in the northern port city of Tianjin killed at least 165 people.last_img read more

Doctors appeal to delay NEET exam

first_imgKolkata: Two city-based doctors and three medical aspirants on Friday have written to the Union Human Resources Development Minister Prakash Javadekar urging him to defer the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) scheduled to take place on May 5 citing various reasons.The doctors have pointed out that the severe cyclone predicted to hit the state late Friday night may have an impact on the people in the costal districts as a result of which the medical aspirants taking the examination will face difficulties in reaching their examination centres. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataIn the rural areas, the candidates have to travel a long way to reach the examination centres. The letter written by Dr Amiya Kumar Maity and Dr Priyanka Maity along with some medical aspirants drew the attention of the minister. They said that it takes around one or two days for the various exam related officials to put in place adequate arrangements for the nationwide examination. But the cyclonic situation will engage the administrative and other officials in the rescue operation. As a result they will not get enough time to make adequate arrangement for the exam. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in state”The cyclone ‘Fani’ that has already hit costal belt of East India created destruction. There is no power in various areas across the coastal states and the lack of availability of basic needs for the candidates.

The guardians are extremely anxious how the students will turn up at the exam centres,” says the letter. The letter also pointed out that the fifth phase of Lok Sabha elections will be conducted on May 6 a day after the NEET scheduled date. Many buses will be withdrawn for transporting the poll personnel. This may serious affect the examination procedure. Dr Amiya Kumar Maity said: “the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test is a nationwide examination. Various states including Andhra Pradesh and Odisha have been seriously hit by the severe cyclone. The candidates may be in jeopardy if the examination is conducted on May 5 as it was scheduled. We urged the Union HRD minister to take up the issue.”last_img read more

This release… read more January 25, 2010 – One out of 50 people in the United States has an unruptured brain aneurysm, and about 40 percent of all people who have a ruptured brain aneurysm will die as a result. That is why radiologists at Mayo Clinic are using an aneurysm detection system to detect aneurysms with far greater speed and accuracy. Since adopting the method, they have achieved a 95 percent accuracy rate in detecting aneurysms compared with 70 percent for manual interpretation. The project has examined more than 15 million images from thousands of patients since the project began in early July. It uses technology that combines advanced imaging with analytics to highlight likely aneurysms for faster detection. This helps radiologists identify them before they result in brain hemorrhage or neurological damage. To improve the process of detection using noninvasive magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) imaging technology, Mayo Clinic and IBM worked to create automatic reads that run detection algorithms immediately following a scan. Once images are acquired, they are automatically routed to servers in the Mayo and IBM Medical Imaging Informatics Innovation Center located on the Mayo campus in Rochester, a collaborative research facility that combines advanced computing and image processing to provide faster, more accurate image analysis. There algorithms align and analyze images to locate and mark potential aneurysms — even very small ones less than 5mm — so specially trained radiologists can conduct a further and final analysis. From the time an image is taken to the time it is ready to be read by a radiologist, there often is only a 10-minute window. The systems identifies images generated off the scanner and routes those related to the head and brain through the special workflow, which then conducts automated aneurysm detection. On average, this can be done in three to five minutes, improving efficiency and saving valuable radiologist’s time, leading to a quicker diagnosis which is especially important in the case of a serious aneurysm. The aneurysm detection system uses an algorithm developed by Mayo researchers that is executed on IBM WebSphere Process Server to model and orchestrate the automated workflow. Images are stored on IBM DB2 for Linux and Windows data service and workflow logic is run on IBM System x servers and IBM storage. In the future, Mayo Clinic expects to use the same approach for other radiology detection tests such as the diagnosis of cancer or vessel anomalies in other parts of the body. The findings in the study were reported in the November 24, 2009, online issue Journal of Digital Imaging.
