Dockside Development on Bedford Waterfront Moves Forward

first_imgA residential-commercial development is moving forward on the Bedford waterfront. Provident Developments is constructing Dockside Waterfront Drive which consists of two new buildings with retail space and condominiums adjacent to 200 Waterfront Drive. The Waterfront Development Corporation Ltd.(WDCL) and Provident Developments are also working together to create enhanced public spaces around the new development. “Our partnership with Provident builds on a private sector investment to create public facilities in Bedford,” said Colin MacLean president and CEO, Waterfront Development Corporation Ltd. “WDCL is dedicated to realizing our vision of developing animated waterfront destinations to distinguish us among world’s greatest waterfronts.” “We are happy to be finishing phase one of the Dockside development, this is great for Provident and great for Bedford,” said John Greenough, president Provident Developments. “Working with WDCL, we are including nice features to encourage the community use of the waterfront.” The facilities for public use include an expansion of the Harbourwalk Trail, new spaces and improvements to the recreational marine facilities. Construction began Feb. 21, and will temporarily affect access to the Harbourwalk Trail, but people will be provided with an alternate route. Information about the development will be posted on WDCL’s website www.my-waterfront.ca, and the Provident Developments website www.providentdevelopments.com. For more than 20 years, Provident Developments has pursued excellence in real estate development. With roots in historic restorations, Provident has established “A Tradition of Excellence” in projects ranging from single-family homes, to luxury waterfront condominiums, to prime Class A commercial space and entire planned communities. Waterfront Development Corporation Ltd. is a Crown corporation that manages provincially-owned land along the waterfronts of Bedford, Dartmouth, Halifax and Lunenburg. WDCL works with many partners to harness private investment that enables communities to maximize the public benefits of the waterfronts.last_img read more

Alberta introduces bill to reduce red tape for business

EDMONTON – Alberta’s United Conservative government has introduced legislation to slash what it calls unnecessary regulations hindering economic growth and business development.Premier Jason Kenney symbolically used scissors to cut a horizontal line of red tape at a factory south of Edmonton to highlight Bill 4, the Red Tape Reduction Act.Alberta’s mountain of red tape has been holding back our families and job creators from reaching our full potential.We’re going to cut the barriers to growth and prosperity in our province to make our economy the freest in Canada, if not all of North America. pic.twitter.com/879Oa9d0sB— Jason Kenney (@jkenney) May 30, 2019Kenney campaigned on reducing regulations by one-third over four years, and has appointed Grant Hunter as the associate minister in charge of the project.Alberta will follow a similar reduction plan launched almost two decades ago in British Columbia.Starting in 2001, B.C. reduced more than 330,000 regulatory requirements by 40 per cent over three years, and since then it’s down to about 50 per cent of that original figure.Kenney says the bill is also part of a broader initiative to reduce duplication and unnecessary rules across government, in the non-profit sector, and for municipalities. read more

Ordinary citizens can help worlds hungry billion through online UN campaign

As the number of chronically hungry people tops one billion, the head of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is calling on ordinary citizens to mobilize through the “Billion for a Billion” campaign to end hunger.WFP Executive Director Josette Sheeran highlighted the campaign in a statement issued on the second day of the World Summit on Food Security taking place in Rome.“Food security is not only a matter of humanitarian assistance and agricultural development; it is a matter of national security, peace and stability,” Ms. Sheeran said. “Without food, people revolt, migrate or die. This is the emergency issue of our generation, and we stand at a critical crossroads. At this moment in time we must galvanize all nations, all people and all resources do defeat hunger.” “A Billion for a Billion” (www.wfp.org/1billion) is an online campaign designed to make a link between the “on-line haves” and the “have nots.” It is based on the idea that more than a billion people go hungry, but more than a billion people are on the internet. “If everyone with plenty gave just $1.50 or Euro1 a week, those without food would have enough to eat,” Ms. Sheeran noted.“Together we need to make sure that the hungry eat today – and are able to feed themselves tomorrow. It’s time to act.” 17 November 2009As the number of chronically hungry people tops one billion, the head of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is calling on ordinary citizens to mobilize through the “Billion for a Billion” campaign to end hunger. read more

Sri Lanka cohosts Coastline Erosion side event at the UN

A side event entitled “Coastline Erosion and its Contribution to Climate Change” co-hosted by the Permanent Mission of Sri Lanka to the United Nations was held yesterday (20/01) at the UN Headquarters with the participation of a large number of Permanent Representatives, senior diplomats and members of the civil society.The side event, organized with a view to creating awareness on the issue of coastal erosion and its impacts on climate change was also co-sponsored by the UN Office of the High Representative for the Least Developed Countries, Land Locked Developing Countries and Small Island Developing States (UN-OHRLLS) and the NGO Sustainability, a non-governmental organization on Climate Change and Sustainability issues. Ambassador Rohan Perera, Permanent Representative of Sri Lanka to the United Nations made welcome remarks. Mr. Peter Kenilorea, representative of the UN High Representative for the Least Developed Countries, Land Locked Developing Countries and Small Island Developing States, and Ms. Roma Stibravy, President of the NGO Sustainability also spoke. In his welcome statement, Ambassador Perera remarked that it is extremely timely to focus on coastline erosion, a problem that is common to every country with a coastline, and its impact on climate change, particularly in the context of the recently concluded Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. He said that coastal erosion is a global phenomenon that poses grave environmental and economic challenges to the countries, in particular to Developing Coastal States. He further stated that loss of land, threats to coastal ecosystems and the impact on climate change are only a few of them. Small Island Developing States are particularly vulnerable to these challenges, accentuated by rising sea levels due to global warming, Ambassador Perera added.He reiterated that though Sri Lanka is not considered a Small Island State, the challenges posed by coastal erosion are nonetheless felt severely. Mr. Gregory J. Sarno, President of the Coastline Recovery Foundation made a presentation on coastal erosion and climate change, and the new technologies available to mitigate the effects of coastal erosion.The discussion that followed the statements and the presentation, focused on the gravity of the issue and shed light on the various high technological as well as low-cost traditional options available to face the challenges posed by coastline erosion.Many Permanent Representatives and diplomats expressed their appreciation to Sri Lanka for taking this initiative.

Eating heartshaped foods will keep your ticker in good shape

first_imgNUTRITION EXPERTS IN the US are advising people to eat more heart-healthy foods, with one simple tip – if it looks like a heart, it’s probably good for it.Though some dieticians rave about the virtues of red wine and dark chocolate for heart health (and that might sound pretty good to us), Katie Eliot, assistant professor of nutrition and dietetics at Saint Louis University, has a different plan.“Being red and heart shaped can be a tip off that some foods are good for your heart,” Eliot said. “Many heart shaped fruits and vegetables are great sources of antioxidants. These compounds act like shields, taking the hit from free radicals that otherwise damage the body and cause heart disease and cancer.”(Image: Riya V Anandwal)Strawberries and raspberries are loaded with vitamin C and an antioxidant known as poliyphenol that prevents plaque from forming.Cherries also contain an antioxidant called athocyanin, which is thought to protect the blood vessels and is high in potassium, which lowers blood pressure. (Image: Riya V Anandwal)Tomatoes and red peppers are rich in lycopene, which is in many red fruits and vegetables and works magic by neutralising free radicals.(Image: Riya V Anandwal)For fiber, turn to acorn squash and apples as these can reduce bad cholesterol that can clog up your arteries to cause hear attacks and stroke.While the normal recommendation is to eat at least five fruits and vegetables a day, Eliot recommends that for the month of February and with Valentines Day coming up, make two of these a heart-shaped or red choice.“It’s a happy coincidence that many of these foods actually resemble the organ they help to protect,” she said.Read: Meet the people beginning a new life in 2014 thanks to organ transplants>Read: What overeating does to your body>last_img read more

Énergies renouvelables deux mini éoliennes sinstallent à Paris

first_imgÉnergies renouvelables : deux mini éoliennes s’installent à ParisParis, France – Deux petites éoliennes ont été inaugurées sur la toiture-terrasse de la Maison de l’Air, en haut du parc de Belleville. Cette initiative de la mairie de Paris devrait permettre à la capitale d’économiser 2,6 tonnes de CO2 par an.Les toutes premières éoliennes de Paris viennent d’être installées. Etant parfaitement adaptées au milieu urbain, ces deux petites éoliennes d’un mètre soixante sont silencieuses et produiront chacune 15.000 kWh par an. Grâce à elles, c’est le rejet de huit tonnes de CO2 qui devrait être évité.L’installation de ces éoliennes sur le toit d’un immeuble du XXe arrondissement est une expérimentation pour Paris qui “veut être précurseur sur les questions de l’écologie urbaine”, comme l’a assuré Anne Hidalgo, première adjointe au maire chargée de l’urbanisme. Dans un premier temps, les éoliennes alimenteront la Maison de l’Air en électricité, le temps que soit évalué leur développement potentiel.”La nouveauté de ces mini-éoliennes, ou aérogénérateurs, est qu’elles peuvent fonctionner même avec des vents faibles et perturbés, comme ceux que l’on trouve en ville” explique Yann Roye, responsable production et chantier chez Elena Énergie, société qui a créé et prêté à Paris les deux appareils. De telles éoliennes ont déjà été expérimentées à Laval, tandis qu’un chantier va être lancé à Saint-Priest, dans le Rhône. Et dans le cas où elles séduiraient la capitale à l’issue de leur année de test, Denis Baupin, maire-adjoint à l’environnement, assure : “Paris est la première destination touristique au monde, nous ne souhaitons pas détériorer son paysage”.Le 5 avril 2010 à 18:56 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

McCains family says hes stopping medical treatment

first_imgWASHINGTON — Arizona Sen. John McCain has discontinued medical treatment for an aggressive form of brain cancer, his family said Friday, likely indicating the war hero, presidential nominee and longtime leading lawmaker is nearing the end of his life.McCain has surpassed expectations for survival, but “the progress of disease and the inexorable advance of age render their verdict,” the family said. “With his usual strength of will, he has now chosen to discontinue medical treatment.”The six-term GOP senator, who would turn 82 next week, has been away from the Capitol since last December. If he should resign his seat or die soon, Republican Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey would name a replacement to serve until the 2020 election. The winner of that election would serve the remainder of McCain’s term through 2022.In more than three decades in Congress, McCain became known as a political maverick willing to stick to his convictions rather than go along with party leaders — an independent streak that has drawn a mix of respect and ire.Most recently, he has been a thorn in the side of President Donald Trump, keeping up his criticism of the White House even while undergoing severe medical treatment in Arizona.last_img read more

Many criminals target favorite areas and have predictable methods of operation. When you report all the facts about a crime, it helps the police assign officers in the places where crimes are occurring or where they are most likely to occur. If you don’t report crime, this allows the criminal to continue to operate without interference.In many cases, it is the information provided by victims and witnesses that leads to the arrest of a criminal. So tell the police as much as you can; no fact is too trivial.  The police need the eyes and ears of all citizens.Please visit the Royal Bahamas Police Force Website at www.royalbahamaspolice.org or facebook page at www.facebook.com/rbpforce or follow Commissioner of Police Ellison Greenslade on Twitter, for Latest News, Daily Crime Reports and additional Crime Prevention Tips.last_img read more

Robots Have Disassembled 700000 Rockets for the US Military

first_img Get Used to ‘Fortnite’s’ Powerful Mech SuitsRobots to Compete in Underground Challenge in Mining Tunnels Stay on target There are two kinds of tasks that most humans will gladly hand over to a robot: those that are incredibly repetitive (and monotonous) and those that are incredibly dangerous.That’s precisely why the Pentagon setup a robotic lab to tackle a chore that checks both boxes: demilitarizing munitions.Almost a decade ago the Army broke ground on a first-of-its-kind facility at the Anniston Army Depot in Alabama. Its purpose: to process a stockpile of hundreds of thousands of munitions.AdChoices广告The danger to a human life is clear enough — these are live rockets we’re talking about. The level of monotony is, too. The robots at Anniston would be repeating the same ultra-precise movements with the exact same level of care at the exact same modest pace over and over… and over.This automated system demilitarizes warheads by cutting the grenades out individually, picking and placing them, and then removing the fuses. (Photo Credit: Regina Valenzuela/Sandia National Laboratories)For their first tour of duty, they would be tasked with submunitions designed for use with the Army’s M270 Multiple Launch Rocket System. The first M270s were delivered to the Army back in 1982 and were first deployed to West Germany the following spring.Last week Sandia National Laboratories announced that the robot crew had successfully demilitarized 700,000 warheads. The robots can process 21 warheads in an 8-hour shift.It’s an incredibly complex task that required the development of an incredibly complex system: a team of nine robots with a total of 55 cameras and hundreds of sensors. Each rocket is tightly packed with 644 individual grenades that are encased in foam. The robots have to cut the grenades out individually, pick and place them, and then remove the fuses.Prior to the creation of the Anniston facility, the Army only had less-desirable ways of dealing with outmoded munitions. They could be detonated, burned, buried, or sunken at sea.Thanks to Sandia that wasn’t the case with these 700,000 rockets. Their components can now be safely recycled or re-used.More on Geek.com:This Robot Museum in Seoul Plans to Construct ItselfEngineers Built a Self-Aware Robot That Operates on Its OwnThis MIT Robot Learned to Play Jenga Through Vision and Touchlast_img read more

Sebi bans 7 individuals from market in LGS Global case

first_imgSebi has barred seven individuals from the capital market for six years after finding them guilty of manipulating trading in the shares of LGS Global over a period of three years beginning 2008. After noticing irregularities, Sebi had initiated a probe into trading in certain scrips, including LGS, during the years 2008, 2009 and 2010.An analysis found that prima facie certain entities had indulged in creating artificial volume by trading in a synchronised manner carrying out off-market transfers among themselves for the purpose of meeting settlement obligations of another and in turn contributing to the price rise.

Sebi, in an order issued late yesterday, imposed a 6-year ban on seven individuals — Bhavesh Pabari, Bipin Jayant Thaker, Prem Mohanlal Parikh, Hemant Madhusudan Seth, Mala Hemant Seth, Ankit Sanchaniya and Bharat Shantilal Thakkar — from the securities market. The period of prohibition already undergone by them, pursuant to the interim order issued in February 2011, would be taken into account for computing the ban period.  Also Read – Lanka launches ambitious tourism programme to woo Indian tourists“It is clarified that the restraint/prohibition imposed on the noticees shall run concurrently with the restraint/ prohibition imposed by Sebi vide order dated May 13, 2015 in the matter of dealings in the shares of Goldstone Technologies Ltd,” the regulator said.The notices in the present proceedings have already been restrained by Sebi, through an order in May 2015 in the matter related shares of Goldstone Technologies, from accessing the securities market. In a separate order yesterday, the regulator banned 239 entities for making illegal gains of Rs 614 crore through manipulation of shares of four companies listed on the BSE’s SME trading platform.

HPs 449 Chromebook 15 Has RazorThin Bezels AllDay Battery

first_imgWeight4 pounds The competition to make the best large-screen Chromebook is heating up, and HP wants in. The company unveiled today the Chromebook 15, a 15.6-inch laptop running Chrome OS.The HP Chromebook 15 is available today for $449 at HP.com in Mineral Silver or Cloud Blue color variants.

That sleek design is enabled by razor-thin bezels that border the laptop’s 15.6-inch, 1080p touch screen display. We’ve seen these so-called edge-to-edge displays on countless laptops over the past year, but rarely at this price.MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

That combination of materials will hopefully give the Chromebook 15 a premium feel.HP has a strong track record for crafting comfortable keyboards. The company’s Spectre, Envy and EliteBook laptops all provide an excellent typing experience, so we’re hoping HP used the same formula on the Chromebook 15. Given that the backlit keyboard spans the entire width of the 15-inch laptop’s frame, the keys should at least be large and well-spaced.  At $449, you shouldn’t expect the base Chromebook 15 to run demanding programs or modern games. However, with an Intel Pentium Gold 4417U CPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of eMMC flash storage and an HD 610 GPU, you should be able to browse the web and load apps without issue. Power users can opt for a higher-end configuration that has a Core i CPU (HP has not yet revealed the specific CPU model) and up to a 128GB SSD.HP promises 13 hours of battery life out of the Chromebook 15, which would be an impressive result, even for a Chromebook. However, we’ll need to put the notebook through our battery test to determine real-world results. And as per usual, HP’s new laptop comes onboard with dual B&O-tuned speakers, so you should expect solid audio quality.The Chromebook 15 is available today.

May 17, 2019 — Biopharmaceutical company CellPoint plans to begin patient recruitment for its Phase 2b cardiovascular imaging study in patients suffering from coronary artery disease using the company’s new one-vial Oncardia (ethylenedicysteine-glucosamine) kits.  The 60-patient trial study is being conducted in the U.S.Today, slightly greater than 6 million nuclear cardiology perfusion imaging scans are performed in the U.S. annually. Such procedures, referred to as myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI), are performed using either single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) or positron emission tomography (PET) camera systems. SPECT MPI procedures represent 98 percent of the total. All MPI procedures, regardless of the choice of radiopharmaceutical agent, are designed to illuminate the healthy perfused part of the heart. A high percentage of the patients are required to undergo a time-consuming rest and separate stress study. While there are several cardiovascular disease indicators that can be looked at with MPI, the predominant focus for such studies is the presence, location and severity of myocardial ischemia following a heart attack.  99mTc-Oncardia is not a perfusion agent. It is being clinically studied as the first functional cardiovascular imaging agent that is target-specific for myocardial ischemia.  One of the clinical objectives of the study is to demonstrate that 99mTc-Oncardia can be effectively used where the patient does not need to be either physically or pharmacologically stressed for the study.99mTc-Oncardia is for use with SPECT camera systems. CellPoint also is planning to clinically study 68Ga-Oncardia for use with PET camera systems.For more information: www.cellpointweb.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | PET-CT | August 15, 2019 United Imaging Announces First U.S. Clinical Installation of uExplorer Total-body PET/CT United Imaging announced that its uExplorer total-body positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) system… read more Image courtesy of Imago Systems Videos | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 07, 2019 VIDEO: Walk Around of a GE Cardiographe Dedicated Cardiac CT Scanner This is a quick walk around of the GE Healthcare Cardiographe dedicated cardiac CT system on display at the… read more Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.
