Government Supports Homegrown Success Story

Posted On Oct 22 2019 by

first_imgCape Breton-based Advanced Glazings Ltd. will expand its manufacturing facility and create 50 jobs this year, and up to 320 over the next five years. The innovative, award winning company distributes energy efficient products across North America. The facility expansion is possible through a repayable loan of $2 million from the province’s Industrial Expansion Fund. This investment was announced today, Oct.19, by Richard Hurlburt, Minister of Economic Development. “The products developed by Advanced Glazings are energy efficient, cost-effective, and contribute to environmental sustainability,” said Mr. Hurlburt. “We are pleased to support this homegrown business success story.” The company has developed and marketed innovative products. Solera is a line of translucent, insulated glass units that improve the quality and energy efficiency of interior spaces by drawing daylight further into a room. The expansion of the manufacturing facility includes an in-house glass cutting centre, which will provide cost and delivery benefits, and a new production line for the Solera product. “This investment means our sales and workforce will continue to grow as a result of the expansion of our firm. By increasing our production capacity, we will allow more architects to design sustainable daylighted buildings,” said Douglas Milburn, president, Advanced Glazings. “We are pleased to share a vision for a sustainable Nova Scotia — a province that demonstrates leadership and innovation in the world of green building.” Advanced Glazings expects to see sales increase significantly as a result of the facility expansion. About 90 per cent of the company’s revenues are generated from export sales. The Industrial Expansion Fund is one method by which the government of Nova Scotia supports economic development in the province. This fund has considerable flexibility in the amount and type of funding it can provide. The fund is key to helping industries involved in innovative research and technology while contributing to a prosperous and sustainable business climate for Nova Scotia.last_img read more

McIlroy leads after sizzling 62 at WGC St Jude event

Posted On Oct 18 2019 by

first_imgLos Angeles: Rory McIlroy birdied the last three holes, closing with a dramatic 27-foot putt, to seize a one-stroke lead over top-ranked Brooks Koepka after Saturday’s third round of the WGC St Jude Invitational. The four-time major winner from Northern Ireland fired an eight-under par 62 to stand on 12-under 198 after 54 holes at par-70 TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tennessee. “To birdie the last three holes and take the lead puts me in a really great position going into tomorrow,” McIlroy said on Saturday.

It also booked the 30-year-old a first-ever Sunday pairing with four-time major winner Koepka in the last group for the final round of the elite World Golf Championship event.

McIlroy birdied the last three holes on both the front and back nine. “I had a lot of good numbers where I could make a full committed swing,” McIlroy said. “One of my goals was to hit it pin high and I did that for most of the day.” McIlroy sank a six-foot birdie putt on the opening hole and dropped one that was half as long at the third, then reeled off a 23-foot birdie putt at seven and back-to-back seven-footers for birdies at the par-3 eighth and par-4 ninth. After finding water off the 12th tee and taking his lone bogey of the day, McIlroy answered by dropping his tee shot to five feet at the par-3 14th and sinking the birdie putt. McIlroy then closed with a six-foot birdie at the par-5 16th, a 16-footer at 17 and his dramatic long birdie effort at 18. “I just put it a little outside right and it went in, which is nice,” McIlroy said of his final putt. Koepka, who defended a major title at this year’s PGA Championship, saw his ball cling to a slope on the rough over greenside water at 18 but got up and down for par to close on 64.last_img read more

UN appalled at killing of aid workers in South Sudan

Posted On Oct 2 2019 by

Their bodies were found on the road by others members of the convoy who were some way behind. “The United Nations condemns this appalling and pointless loss of life,” said the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for South Sudan and the head of UNMISS, David Shearer in a news release issued by the mission. “This cold-blooded killing is utterly reprehensible, not least, because these aid workers were dedicated to alleviating the ongoing suffering of the people of South Sudan,” he added, urging the Government to investigate and apprehend the killers.The attack – the single worst incident targeting aid workers in the African country since the outbreak of hostilities in December 2013 – comes at a time when humanitarian needs have reached unprecedented levels. “[Such attacks] not only put the lives of aid workers at risk, they also threaten the lives of thousands of South Sudanese who rely on our assistance for their survival,” said Eugene Owusu, the Humanitarian Coordinator for South Sudan, stressing that security of relief workers has to be ensured so that they are able to provide relief to those with immense needs across the nation. The conflict has taken a devastating tool on the people of South Sudan: around 7.5 million people are in need of relief and protection, and the humanitarian crisis has deepened further with localized famine declared in parts of the country. No safety when attacks met with silenceAt least 79 aid workers have been killed in South Sudan since December 2013, including at least 12 this year. The last two months alone have seen a sharp increase of attacks on humanitarians and looting of supplies intended for people suffering from the famine. On 14 March, one health worker and a patient were killed in an attack on a humanitarian convoy that was responding to a cholera outbreak in Yirol East (in the central part of South Sudan). Earlier, on 10 March, staff of an international non-governmental organization were detained by non-state armed individuals during fighting in Mayendit town (also in central South Sudan). They were released four days later. “Every time an attack of this nature happens, we say that it must never happen again. And yet it does […] there is no safety when attacks are met with silence and inaction,” said the Humanitarian Coordinator, underscoring that the impunity that has prevailed for such crimes must end, and that perpetrators must be brought to justice. “I implore all those in positions of power to step up to their responsibilities and stop this, as they are ultimately accountable for what happens under their watch.” read more

Do you know the signs and symptoms of the silent killer

Posted On Sep 22 2019 by

first_imgDO YOU KNOW the signs and symptoms of the ‘silent killer’, ovarian cancer?The first annual World Ovarian Cancer Day will take place on 8 May and its aim is to help raise awareness of the disease and its symptoms.Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death from gynaecological malignancy in the western world, and is diagnosed annually in nearly a quarter of a million women globally. Sadly, it is responsible for 140,000 deaths each year and 70 per cent of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer die within 5 years.Ireland recently ranked 4th highest of 30 countries surveyed in terms of incidence rates, and has the highest mortality rate in Europe.World Ovarian Cancer DayOvarian cancer is often called the ‘silent killer’, and remains very challenging, mainly because there tends to be a lack of awareness of symptoms and late stage diagnosis.Symptoms of ovarian cancer can often be confused with other less serious conditions such as gastrointestinal disorder, and this means the majority of patients are identified in the advanced stages. It is at this stage that the disease becomes more difficult to treat.According to the organisers of World Ovarian Cancer Day, experts now believe it is the frequency and combination of symptoms that can help doctors distinguish between ovarian cancer and other conditions.So if a woman experiences one or more of the following symptoms on most days within a three week period, they should discuss their concerns with their doctor:Increased abdominal size / persistent bloating (not bloating that comes and goes)Difficulty eating/feeling full quicklyAbdominal or pelvic painNeeding to pass urine more urgently or more frequentlyThere can be other symptoms which also occur, including change in bowel habits, abnormal vaginal bleeding, fatigue, and unexpected weight loss or weight gain around the abdomen. However these are less helpful when a doctor is trying to determine whether or not ovarian cancer is the cause.Dr Matt Hewitt, Gynaecological Oncologist, Cork University Hospital and a member of OvaCare’s medical panel, pointed out that unlike cervical cancer, there currently is no reliable screening test for ovarian cancer.Although ovarian cancer can be a deadly disease, if it is diagnosed at the earliest stage it can be treated effectively with surgery and chemotherapy, leading to survival rates of up to 90 per cent.Rachel Ireland, co-founder of OvaCare, was sporting teal nail polish at the launch and said that teal is the recognised colour for ovarian cancer charity organisations worldwide. They hope that by wearing the nail polish, women will get their friends and colleagues talking about the disease and its symptoms.World Ovarian Cancer Day is being promoted in Ireland by three ovarian cancer charities: OvaCare, Supporting Ovarian Cancer Knowledge (SOCK) and the Emer Casey Foundation.Read: New lab that deals with cervical and bowel screening results officially opens today>last_img read more

Les deux nouvelles lunes de Pluton se nomment Kerberos et Styx

Posted On Sep 20 2019 by

first_imgLes deux nouvelles lunes de Pluton se nomment Kerberos et StyxMardi, l’Union astronomique internationale a rendu son verdict après des mois de vote et de propositions. Les deux nouvelles lunes de Pluton, P4 et P5 ont désormais de véritables noms : respectivement Kerberos et Styx.C’est en février dernier que tout a commencé, avec un vaste concours lancé sur internet. Le but : trouver un petit nom aux deux nouvelles lunes de Pluton découvertes en 2011 et 2012. Le principe était alors simple. Il fallait soit voter pour un des noms proposés, soit en trouver un autre, à condition que celui-ci respecte deux critères. Il devait être emprunté à la mythologie grecque ou romaine et faire référence au monde du souterrain. En 15 jours à peine, plus de 450.000 votes avaient ainsi été recueillis pour élire deux noms : Vulcain et Cerbère. Toutefois, ceci ne constituait qu’une étape préliminaire puisque seule l’Union astronomique internationale est à même de nommer les nouveaux corps découverts dans l’espace. La question était donc : l’UAI allait-elle suivre les suggestions des internautes ? Aujourd’hui, le suspense a pris fin ! Et les experts ont semble t-il suivi les résultats du concours, ou du moins presque.En effet, les lunes P4 et P5 ont été nommées Kerberos et Styx. Le premier fait bien entendu référence à Cerbère le fameux chien à trois têtes qui garde la porte des Enfers. C’est le deuxième nom qui avait été plébiscité par les internautes. Styx fait lui référence à l’un des fleuves des Enfers mais n’était que le troisième choix des votants. Il semblerait donc que l’UAI ait préféré laisser de côté Vulcain et la référence à Star Trek qui avaient été suggérés sur Twitter par William Shatner, le célébrissime capitaine Kirk de la série télévisée.Vulcain… déjà utilisé ! Dans un communiqué officiel, l’Institut SETI qui a lancé le concours a expliqué : “L’UAI a sérieusement pris en considération ce nom, qui apparait être aussi celui du dieu romain des volcans. Cependant, parce que ce nom a déjà été utilisé en astronomie et que le dieu romain n’est pas étroitement associé à Pluton, cette proposition a été rejetée”. Sans surprise, la décision a quelque peu déçu William Shatner qui a tweeté “ils n’ont pas nommé la lune Vulcain, je suis triste”.  “Les fans de Star Trek l’ont mauvaise. D’abord, JJ [Abrams] fait sauter Vulcain et maintenant SETI trouve une faille pour refuser que la planète revienne”, a t-il ajouté. Néanmoins, l’acteur pourrait ne pas rester déçu très longtemps. Selon le site, la référence à Star Trek pourrait tout de même se frayer un chemin sur Pluton. En effet, la sonde New Horizons lancée en 2006 va se rapprocher de la planète naine afin de fournir la première observation rapprochée de la planète naine en 2015.Le but est de mieux connaitre son relief et d’identifier ainsi les cratères, les montagnes et les autres motifs qui existent à sa surface. Or, à la différence des lunes, ces derniers pourraient bien être baptisés du nom de personnage de Star Trek dans la mesure où les scientifiques ont bien plus de liberté à nommer ce genre de choses. “On pourrait appeler les cratères Sulu, Spock, Kirk, McCoy, etc.” a déclaré mardi Mark Showalter de l’Institut SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) basé à Mountain View.Mickey Mouse sur Pluton ? Tout espoir n’est donc pas perdu pour les fans de la mythique série. Mais Showalter n’exclut pas non plus que les fans de Disney puissent un jour être satisfaits grâce aux reliefs de Pluton (Pluto en anglais). Le scientifique fait bien sûr référence à Pluto, le célèbre chien de Mickey Mouse. “Nous savons qu’il y a beaucoup de fans de films d’animation de Disney par ici et j’espère qu’un jour, Pluton nous donnera un endroit auquel nous pourrons donner le nom de Mickey [Mouse]”, a ajouté le scientifique. À lire aussiSpaceX : un satellite d’Elon Musk manque d’entrer en collision avec un satellite de l’ESAPour l’heure, Kerberos et Styx rejoignent donc la liste des lunes de Pluton qui en comprend déjà trois, Charon la plus grande (environ 603 km de diamètre), Nyx et Hydra (toutes deux de 44 à 130 km). Les deux nouvelles lunes sont les plus petites connues, Kerberos et Styx mesurant entre 20 et 30 km de diamètre. Mais leurs caractéristiques restent encore imprécises. Au cours des prochains années, la sonde New Horizons devrait ainsi permettre d’en savoir un peu plus sur le système de la planète naine.(crédits photo : NASA – ESA – SETI Institute) Le 3 juillet 2013 à 18:21 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Obama 33000 troops to leave Afghanistan by mid2012

Posted On Sep 16 2019 by

first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) — Beginning to wind down a long and devastating war, President Barack Obama announced Wednesday night he was pulling home 33,000 U.S. troops from Afghanistan by next summer, withdrawing the “surge” of forces he had sent to rescue a flailing effort. Said Obama to a country eager for an exit: “The tide of war is receding.”A total of 10,000 troops will leave the war zone by the end of this year — fulfilling Obama’s promise for a withdrawal starting next month — and more than 20,000 additional forces will leave by the summer of 2012, shortly before the president will go before voters in search of a second term.Still, almost 70,000 U.S. troops will remain in an unstable country, fighting in a war bound to see more Americans killed. Obama said they will leave at a steady pace, but the U.S. combat mission is not expected to end until December 2014 — and even then, a sizable and enduring contingent may remain in a different role.Obama’s announcement from the White House came in a perilous political environment, with Americans soured on the war and the economy, many members of Congress pushing him to get troops home even faster, and his Republican presidential rivals taking shots at his leadership at every chance.Plenty of disgruntled Democrats also took Obama to task, however politely, for not withdrawing more troops more quickly.“I am glad this war is ending, but it’s ending at far too slow a pace,” said Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif. Added the House Democratic leader, Nancy Pelosi of California: “We will continue to press for a better outcome.”last_img read more

Game of Thrones live concert will tour 28 US cities

Posted On Sep 1 2019 by

first_imgGame of Thrones would be nothing without its music. You may laugh, but how many days or even weeks have you had the theme song in your head? It’s maybe the perfect title sequence song ever, and just perfectly sets you up for the events of the show. You’re probably humming it right now, aren’t you?Well this news isn’t going to help you, because Live Nation and HBO have just announced that Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi will be taking the music of the show on a 28-city tour across North America. It may not be Westeros, but it’ll do.This isn’t going to be a straight music concert, either. The creators are promising a “state-of-the-art experience” that makes attendees feel as if they are traveling through the world, from King’s Landing to Winterfell, along the northern stretches of the Kingsroad to The Wall and across the Narrow Sea to Braavos, Meereen, and beyond.“For the past six seasons of Game of Thrones, I have been tremendously inspired to compose music to David Benioff’s and D.B. Weiss’ extraordinary adaption of George R.R. Martin’s epic ‘A Song of Fire and Ice’ series,” says Ramin Djawadi. “Now, by combining the music with state of the art technology, we are going to bring the astonishing world of Westeros to fans in a live and unique concert experience.”Game of Thrones may be his most famous work, but Djawadi has crafted music for dozens of huge films, including Iron Man, Pacific Rim, and Warcraft. Next he is working on HBO’s hugely anticipated series Westworld.“For seven years, Ramin has been blowing our mind with his music’s force, subtlety, and endless inventiveness,” said Game of Thrones TV shows creators/executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. “The GoT Concert Experience will be unique in the history of concert tours, an eye-popping, ear-splitting, phantasmagoric blend of the show’s visuals and Ramin’s powerful compositions. We are more excited for it than anyone.”As the concept art above shows, it appears they will be really making you feel like you’re in each and every famous location, which you will hopefully be able to see over the glare of thousands of cell phones.The concert tour will kick off in Kansas City on February 15, and for the full list of cities and locations included see the list below.

8 top tips for women drivers

Posted On Aug 28 2019 by

first_imgThe more weight you’re carrying around, the more fuel you’re using and therefore the more it’s going to cost you! Assign one day a week to empty out the contents of your car. Just think that, with what you save on wasted petrol, you could end up with enough for a whole new wardrobe!Checking your oil and water levels is definitely one thing you should not put off!Basically, if your car runs out of oil, the engine will have no lubrication, seize up and die, leaving you with a car that doesn’t work and a hefty mechanic’s bill. Checking your oil once a month can prevent this. Make sure your car has been stopped for five minutes or so (the engine turned off), open the bonnet, pull out the dipstick from the engine, then wipe and replace it, before pulling it out again – the oil level should be between the minimum and maximum marks. If it’s not, then it’s time to top up.Having your air-con on uses more fuel than opening the windowEver heard the common myth that having your air-con turned on uses more fuel than opening the window? At most speeds, if the car window is open, the coefficient drag is enough to make your car work harder, thus using more fuel. In fact, it uses about the same amount of fuel as having your air-con turned on.Changing tyres or getting a flatPutting the gear lever into ‘park’ won’t stop the vehicle from moving and falling off the jack, once lifted. If you have passengers on board, get them out and apply the handbrake as tight as it will go, switch the engine off, open the boot and ensure that the spare wheel is at hand before undoing the wheel. The biscuit wheel is an emergency wheel and cannot be used indefinitely. Have the flat repaired immediately.Testing the fuel gauge This may sound a little bit silly, but the ‘E’ on your petrol gauge does not stand for ‘enough’! If you’re running on reserve, find the nearest petrol station and top up. Not only is it dangerous if you get caught out without fuel, it’s not good for your engine either.Stockings do NOT make a good replacement for a fan beltUnless you’re driving a 1969 Ford Escort, stockings do NOT make a good replacement for a fan belt. Modern motor vehicles have a serpentine belt which drives all the moving components attached to the engine and pantyhose will not be able to drive these components. Make time to understand how the serpentine belt works.Clutch ridingKeeping your foot on the clutch while driving will not help you change gears more smoothly. Rather, the thrust bearing is being overworked by constant pressure from the fingers of the pressure plate, which will ruin the thrust bearing and cause premature clutch failure.Thinking of driving in heels? Think againHigh heels elevate your foot and distort the ability to measure how much pressure needs to be applied to the clutch and brake pedals. Heels also have a good chance of getting caught in the floor mat. If your heel is wedged under the pedals or stuck on the carpet/floor mat, you might not be able to react swiftly. Consider keeping a comfortable pair of driving shoes in your car and do a quick shoe change before driving.Click to receive news links via WhatsApp. Or  for the latest news, visit our webpage or follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Join us there!
