A package of power sector tariff and structural reforms would soon be announced,” Sitharaman said. She further said that to take connectivity infrastructure to the next level, the government will build on the successful model of ‘One Nation, One Grid’. She proposed to make available a blueprint this year for developing gas grids, water grids, information-ways, and regional airports. Talking about the recommendations of the high level empowered committee on retirement of old and inefficient plants, and addressing low utilisation of gas plant capacity due to paucity of natural gas, she said suggestions would also be taken up for implementation now. In November last, the panel had recommended the government that the Ministry of Power and Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas may jointly devise a scheme in line with the earlier e-bid RLNG Scheme (supported by Power System Development Fund) to revive gas-based power plants. The government has taken necessary action on all recommendations of the panel except regarding revival of gas based power plants. Under the earlier scheme, the government had provided subsidy to stranded gas-based plants and those running at sub-optimal level, to buy expensive imported gas. Lauding the government’s two mega initiatives of Ujjwala Yojana and Saubhagya Yojana she said,”by 2022, the 75th year of India’s independence, I would like to assure the nation that every single rural family, except those who are unwilling to take the connection, will have an electricity and a clean cooking facility.”last_img read more

Opening twoweek session UN indigenous forum tackles land resource issues

14 May 2007More than 2,500 indigenous representatives from all regions of the world are gathering at United Nations Headquarters in New York for the two-week session of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues to focus on issues related to lands, territories and natural resources. These matters are widely viewed as central to indigenous peoples’ efforts to gain recognition for their rights. “With the increasing desire of States for more economic growth, senseless exploitation of indigenous peoples’ territories and resources continues unabated,” said Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, Chairperson of the UN Permanent Forum, which will meet from 14 to 25 May. Addressing the opening session, General Assembly President Sheikha Haya Rashed Al Khalifa said the Permanent Forum “has been the source of thought-provoking dialogue and has produced concrete recommendations.”At the same time, she cautioned that much remains to be done. “Indigenous peoples continue to face marginalization, extreme poverty and other human rights violations,” she said. “They are often dragged into conflicts and land disputes that threaten their way of life and very survival. Indigenous peoples also suffer from a lack of access to health care, and education.”But she cautioned against casting indigenous peoples as victims. “They are a dynamic collection of communities,” she said. “Their knowledge, culture and environmentalism offer lessons that all of us can learn from.”Sheikha Haya, who has held many meetings with Member States, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and representatives of indigenous peoples, said: “As President of the General Assembly, I would like to assure you of my continued commitment to reach a common ground.”Last year, the General Assembly deferred action on the proposed UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which had been endorsed by the UN Human Rights Council.Drafted and debated for over two decades, the Declaration emphasizes the rights of indigenous peoples to maintain and strengthen their own institutions, cultures and traditions and to pursue their development in keeping with their own needs and aspirations.Essentially, the Declaration outlaws discrimination against indigenous peoples, promotes their full and effective participation in all matters that concern them, as well as their right to remain distinct and to pursue their own visions of economic and social development.Speaking to reporters today at a press conference, several officials associated with the Forum emphasized that breaking the stalemate on the Declaration is essential.Asked about next moves in the process, Ms. Tauli-Corpuz voiced strong opposition to any re-opening of the text. “African governments wanted, with the help of Canada and the New Zealanders, to create a working group to discuss again the Declaration which of course the co-sponsors of the Declaration and indigenous peoples totally rejected, because we cannot have another 20 years to discuss the Declaration again.”She said these governments were putting forward amendments but warned against this approach. “It’s untenable to have a mongrel declaration that would be subjected to voting.”The majority of the world’s remaining natural resources – minerals, freshwater, potential energy sources and more – are found within indigenous peoples’ territories, she said. Access to and ownership and development of these resources remain contentious.Recent decades have seen some progress in the area of legal recognition of indigenous peoples’ rights to the protection and control of their lands, territories and natural resources, but in practical terms, this has not always translated into action.Threats to indigenous peoples’ lands and territories include such things as mineral extraction, logging, environmental contamination, privatization and development projects, the classification of lands as protected areas or game reserves, the use of genetically modified seeds and technology, and monoculture cash crop production.Estimates point to more than 370 million indigenous peoples in some 70 countries worldwide. While they are from diverse geographical and cultural backgrounds, they generally suffer from similar problems, such as lack of basic health care, limited access to education, loss of control over land, abject poverty, displacement, human rights violations and economic and social marginalization.The Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues was established by the UN Economic and Social Council in July 2000. It is composed of 16 independent experts, functioning in their personal capacity. The Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) appoints the members, eight of whom are nominated by governments and eight nominated directly by indigenous organizations in their regions. Efforts to highlight indigenous issues at an international, intergovernmental level started in 1923 when Chief Deskaheh of the Cayuga Nation went to Geneva to speak to the League of Nations – the UN’s predecessor – and defend the right of his nation to live on their land under their own laws and faith. The Maori leader Ratana made the same journey to Geneva in 1924 to plead the case of his peoples. Even though they were not allowed to speak at the League of Nations, their vision nourished the generations that followed.The participation of indigenous peoples in discussions and programmes that impact on them is a top priority of the Permanent Forum. A Trust Fund for the Second International Decade of the World’s Indigenous People has been established to fund small grants projects that focus on culture, education, health, human rights, the environment, and social and economic development by and for indigenous peoples. read more

Talisman looks to Americas Asia Pacific as two core operating areas

Talisman looks to Americas, Asia Pacific as two core operating areas AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email CALGARY – Talisman Energy Inc. is honing its focus in on the Americas and Asia Pacific as its two core operating areas and aims to shed up to $3 billion in assets over the next 18 months.The rest of Talisman’s far-flung portfolio will be developed, divested or involved in joint-venture partnerships, new chief executive Hal Kvisle told investors Wednesday.“We would like to move as quickly as possible to trim the company down and focus on the two core regions, but there are hurdles we need to get over with just about every asset before we can do some of the things that we want to do,” he said.In September, Kvisle cut short his retirement from pipeline giant TransCanada Corp. to take the top job at Talisman, where he had been a board member.Faced with investor impatience over the company’s lagging share price and disappointing production, Talisman has since set out a new strategy focused more on improving operations and cutting costs than on chasing high-risk global exploration and growing production.The investor open house Wednesday was meant to provide more detail on how Talisman intends to reach those goals. One analyst called the event a “make it or break it” earlier this week, but Kvisle said he saw it more as part of a long process to win back investor confidence.“We’ve had very clear signals from our investor base that they want to see greater capital discipline. They want to see greater geographic focus. They want to see Talisman be a much more competitive company. They don’t want to see us stretched so thin,” Kvisle said.Talisman shares gained 11 cents to $12.65 on the Toronto Stock Exchange.The company’s operations in the Americas include shale natural gas in Western Canada and the northeastern United States, oil in Texas and promising developments in Colombia.But Talisman (TSX:TLM) will be paring down its shale position in B.C. and Alberta, with plans to actively market some or all its holdings in the Montney and northern Duvernay formations.While Kvisle said he’d prefer to have a “clean exit” from those assets, he said Talisman would be open to any joint-venture arrangement that made sense.The company expects its asset sales, targeted at between $2 billion and $3 billion over the next 12 to 18 months, to be about evenly split between North America and the rest of the world.The North Sea, where production rates have been fickle and operational issues have caused headaches, used to be considered a core area, but that will no longer be the case. Talisman also has peripheral properties in Algeria, Sierra Leone and the Iraqi semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan.Kvisle said Kurdistan is particularly promising, and the company will look to prove up its interests there in the near-term before exploring any sale or joint-venture options.“Kurdistan is one of the most exciting oil structures that I’ve seen in my career. We’re very enthused about the next couple of wells that we’re drilling there,” he said.Talisman has already said it will exit Peru and Poland.There’s very little in Southeast Asia that Talisman would consider selling because “we like everything that we’ve got” in the region, Kvisle said.The company has also reduced its capital budget to $3 billion this year, a 25 per cent reduction from 2012.Talisman recently laid off 90 employees at its Calgary head office in an effort to streamline its Canadian operations amid low North American natural gas prices. However, it still has 1,500 employees in Canada including about 1,200 in Calgary.Kvisle acknowledged that Talisman is often cited as a takeover target.“If legitimate offers from credible players come forward, Talisman has to deal with them, consider them and there’s no restriction or negative reaction to that. This is just part of the business that we’re in,” he said.He added that he’s often asked whether Talisman would consider a corporate split, spinning off its Asian business from the rest.Asia is “the heart and soul of what we’ve been successful at in the last few years,” he said.“There’s a lot of increased overhead as we establish two companies and there’s a lot of risk for shareholders, and as a shareholder I would not want to see Talisman split into two companies. I don’t think it’s a particularly creative solution to where we’re at.” by Lauren Krugel, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 6, 2013 8:07 am MDT read more

Whole Foods Market CEOs admit to pricing problems at stores will train

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Whole Foods Market is apologizing to its shoppers for incorrect pricing, a week after a New York investigation found that the natural food grocer routinely overcharged for prepackaged fruits, vegetables and deli meats.“Straight up, we made some mistakes,” said co-CEO Walter Robb, as he stood beside co-CEO John Mackey in a YouTube video posted Wednesday. “We want to own that.”Robb and Mackey said that the pricing mistakes were unintentional and that the company will increase its training at stores around the county. Going forward, Whole Foods will give items away for free if customers discover they were overcharged. “We apologize to our customers for any discrepancies that may have occurred,” the company said in blog post.Last week, New York’s Department of Consumer Affairs said it was expanding its investigation after finding that Whole Foods stores in the city regularly ripped customers off, including overcharging $14.84 for a package of coconut shrimp and $4.85 for eight chicken tenders. The department tested 80 types of prepackaged items and found all of them had mislabeled weights. The investigation focused on eight stores in the city.In a statement, Commissioner Julie Menin said that the Department of Consumer Affairs was “gratified” that Whole Foods admitted to issues with its prepackaged food labels.In the YouTube video, Mackey said there was a “very small percentage” of weighing errors with items made in stores, including sandwiches, fresh juices and cut fruits.“We know they are unintentional because the mistakes are both in the customer’s favour and sometimes not in the customer’s favour,” Robb said.Based in Austin, Texas, Whole Foods Market Inc. operates 422 stores around the world. by The Associated Press Posted Jul 2, 2015 2:36 pm MDT Last Updated Jul 2, 2015 at 3:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Whole Foods Market CEOs admit to pricing problems at stores; will train staff nationwide read more

Failure to end crisis in Syria diminishes us all – UN refugees

“It is deeply alarming that the international response so clearly falls short of what is needed to end the conflict in Syria,” Ms. Jolie emphasised in a statement. According to the UN, over 220,000 Syrians have been killed, and almost half of the country’s men, women and children have been forced to flee their homes since the conflict in Syria erupted in March 2011. More than 4 million people have sought refuge in neighbouring countries, while a further 7.6 million are displaced within Syria.UNHCR says that most of the over 4 million Syrian refugees in neighbouring countries see no prospect of returning home in the near future, and have scant opportunity to restart their lives in exile as many of them live in insecure dwellings and in poverty.“It is sickening that crimes are being committed against the Syrian people on a daily basis with impunity. The failure to end this crisis diminishes all of us,” Ms. Jolie said, urging governments around the world to put aside their differences and try again to solve the conflict politically. “People are entitled to feel bewildered and angry that the UN Security Council seems unable to respond to the worst crisis of the 21st century,” she added, noting that neighbouring countries and international humanitarian agencies are being stretched beyond their limits. She also appealed for urgent steps to demonstrate that the international community is serious about accountability in Syria: “to show that we will not turn a blind eye to war crimes and that we will not fail refugees, the displaced, and the survivors.” read more

Brock student wins provincial contest for Cope Care Connect initiative

Kaitlyn Kerridge receiving her award at today’s event at CAMH in Toronto.A third-year Brock Health Sciences student, Kaitlyn Kerridge, has taken first prize in a province-wide competition that challenged students to use social media to help boost mental health at university campuses across Ontario.Her winning entry in the Mental Health 2.0 student social media contest stemmed from a class project in which students developed a comprehensive social marketing campaign called Cope Care Connect.Kerridge’s focus on using Facebook for sharing inspirational quotes, information on mental health, videos and self-help materials for skill-building, and ‘selfies’ of healthy ways to cope, care and connect, was recognized as an ideal way to encourage positive mental health among all students on campus.She was recognized with a $1,500 prize at an event today at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto.“We’re happy to see the hard work undertaken by these students to help inspire their fellow classmates has been recognized,” says Kim Meade, Vice-Provost and Associate Vice-President, Student Services at Brock. “We’re committed to fostering a healthy campus for our students and student-driven initiatives like this are at the core of that commitment. Congratulations to Kaitlyn and her team.”The Mental Health 2.0 challenge was co-ordinated by the Council of Ontario Universities (COU) with funding support from the Ontario Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Employment. Winners were selected from a list of 10 finalists by a panel of experts in accessibility, mental health and social media.“Students’ mental health remains a top priority for Ontario’s universities and Mental Health 2.0 is just one way universities are addressing it,” says Bonnie M. Patterson, COU’s President and CEO. “The knowledge gained around mental health will help students act as more informed and compassionate members of their communities.”Cope Care Connect, which launched in February 2014, was a month-long online and face-to-face campaign at Brock targeted at first-year students.Using info tables, a website, YouTube and Facebook pages, the initiative encouraged students to share their experiences – good and bad – and learn effective ways to cope with the demands they face. It also featured student contests aimed at inspiring random acts of kindness to help boost the spirits of others at the University.Cope Care Connect is a partnership with Student Health Services and is supported by the Student Life fee. read more

Best Buy snafu prices Flyer at 99 Updated

first_imgThere is no denying that, while it marked the death of the OS, the HP Touchpad sold a ton of units when at that $99 price point. I commented shortly after the price drop that every tablet should be $99, arguing that a service based business model and not a hardware business model would carry the next wave of devices.Just a few short days ago the Kindle Fire rocked the tech world with it’s $199 price point with hardware specs comparable to most $500 tablets. Obviously something needed to be done to compete here, there’s just no way the current pricing could compete with the Touchpad and the Fire. With that in mind, it made perfect sense to me that HTC would choose now to drop the price of their Flyer tablet to $99, as that’s exactly what Bestbuy.com did last night. Today Best Buy has announced this was a website error, and that most stores are refusing to honor the $99 offering. Lets take a look at whether or not HTC should give this some real consideration.No one reason whyFlyer sales haven’t been great, but no Android tablet has been overly spectacular yet in that department. The Flyer attempted to appeal to a decidedly niche market with the pen offering and by not being a 10 spec monstrosity. Unlike the Touchpad, however, development is still active for the Flyer. HTC is likely only a few short weeks from releasing Honeycomb for the Flyer, with the Sense optimizations intact. The Flyer caught a lot of negativity for not coming with Honeycomb, despite the fact that the HTC Sense optimizations for the screen size made the tablet significantly more functional than most Honeycomb tablets when it first came out. Add in the recent move by HTC to release the pen API’s through their HTCDev service, and the Flyer is poised to get plenty of attention. So, why the price drop?My initial speculation is that HTC could have been planning to replace the Flyer with an Ice Cream Sandwich tablet before Christmas. HTC has a long history of having access to the next version of Android before most due to their relationship with Google. If you follow the release cycle for the latest releases, HTC is due for something extra from Google anyway. Samsung and Motorola have both seen favor in device launches with this generation of Android, but not HTC. The Nexus S and the Xoom were both first run devices, getting updates before anyone else. In keeping with that partnership, HTC could well be working to have a powerful Ice Cream Sandwich tablet out soon.Competition is also a big motivator here. Being the same size as a Kindle Fire, combined with the ability to pick one up off the shelf right this second for $100 less, would be a powerful motivator for a lot of people who are still unsure about their first tablet. After the flood of sales that followed the HP Touchpad, and knowing that the Kindle Fire has already sold faster than any other Android tablet, this might have been the only way to stay even remotely relevant.Glitch in the MatrixThe social networks exploded minutes after it was discovered that Bestbuy.com was selling the tablet for $99 and that stores were not honoring it. Most stores, anyway, as there have been conflicting reports that some locations have felt there was no choice but to honor it. The official word from BestBuy corporate, however, is that this was a mistake on their website and the stores are not to honor the price.Curiously, bestbuy.com still has the tablet listed as being on sale for $99 hours after it was called a pricing mistake by their corporate office. This could mean that the website, which is linked to their warehouses, was selling their inventory knowing that most stores will only have one or two of these devices on hand. Some have gone as far as to claim that this was an attempt to re-create the in store rush that was seen when the TouchPad went on sale. After all, if you drive all the way to the store and what you want isn’t there, you’d still shop around, right?Final thoughtsI have not hid my love for the HTC Flyer.  It remains my favorite Android tablet. The size is great, SenseUI is a terrific overlay optimized for the larger screen, and you know already that all of your apps will not only work on your tablet buy look nice too. If you are using it for work or for play, the Scribe Stylus can be a real pleasure to have as a companion. If you see it listed again for $99, you should consider violating some traffic laws to get one before they are all gone.UPDATE:  So, it’s kind of hard to call website failure when the pricing is also showing up in some of the stores as well. Reports are coming in from users who are seeing the same sale signs up all over stores across the US. Additionally, the web page that had the sale listed originally has been pulled down. There’s been no further explanation as towhat is going on here, more as it develops.last_img read more

PSG president is 2000 certain Neymar Mbappe will stay

first_imgPresident Nasser Al-Khelaifi is adamant that Paris Saint-Germain will not be required to sell either Neymar or Kylian Mbappe due to the Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules.The Ligue 1 champions have been under investigation by UEFA for their mega spending spree in recent years.Clubs in Europe are not permitted to exceed certain spending limits and PSG’s got under the spotlight by forking out a world-record transfer fee of €222m to sign Neymar from Barcelona in the summer of 2017.The Parisians then followed that up by signing Kylian Mbappe from AS Monaco on an initial season-long loan deal before activating their buy option last summer for €180m.PSG have frequently denied any wrongdoing in regards to claims they’ve breached UEFA’s FFP rules, which has prompted concern over the long-term futures of Neymar and Mbappe as it could force them to sell their star duo.And Al-Khelaifi has retaliated that PSG will not be cashing in on Neymar and Mbappe in order to comply with the FFP rules.Opinion: Neymar needs to apologize to PSG’s supporters Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After such a dramatic summer during the transfer window, Neymar truly needs to apologize to all the PSG supporters this weekend.When Neymar finished last…“It’s not 100 per cent, but 2,000 per cent,” Al-Khelafi told Le Parisien on whether Neymar or Mbappe will remain at PSG.“They will stay in Paris. Many media, especially in France, claim that we would need to sell Neymar or Kylian. I want to confirm that Kylian and Neymar will stay here.“Of course, we want to buy, staying within the framework of Financial Fair Play. We are confident. We have the means to recruit.”La Liga president Tebas confirmed that he had asked the UEFA to reopen the case involving PSG after the European football governing body had decided to end their investigation, which had begun in September 2017.“It’s true that at the start of the summer, we asked Uefa to reopen the investigation into PSG,” said Tebas.PSG will be in action today in a Ligue 1 match against Nimes at home with kick-off set for 5:00 PM (CET).BELGRADE, SERBIA – DECEMBER 11: Neymar (L) and Kylian Mbappe (R) of Paris Saint-Germain warms up prior to the UEFA Champions League Group C match between Red Star Belgrade and Paris Saint-Germain at Rajko Mitic Stadium on December 11, 2018 in Belgrade, Serbia.

Jury convicts Washougal woman of stabbing

first_imgA Clark County jury on Friday found a Washougal woman guilty of stabbing her boyfriend in 2010, but decided there wasn’t enough proof that she intended to kill him.After deliberating more than four hours, the seven-woman, five-man jury unanimously voted to convict Tanya N. Quinata, 38, of first-degree assault. But jurors voted to acquit her of second-degree attempted murder.Sentencing was set for Jan. 13.There is little difference in punishment between first-degree assault and second-degree attempted murder; it’s less than a year, said defense attorney Charles Buckley.First-degree assault, a Class A felony, carries a minimum sentence of just under eight years in prison. Jurors returned a special finding that the crime was committed with a deadly weapon, which tacked on an additional two years.Quinata did not show emotion as the jury rendered its verdict. But as she was handcuffed by custody officers, she began to cry. She has not prior felony criminal history.When she took the stand Thursday, Quinata did not deny she was the person responsible for her boyfriend’s injuries on Oct. 14, 2010. But she explained it as an accident, saying he had unintentionally walked into her knife as she was preparing a sandwich.last_img read more

The Severed Head of a Martyr now Displayed in an Irish Church

first_imgFor nearly four hundred years, St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church in Drogheda, Ireland, has kept one of the most peculiar and disturbing religious relics in the Western World on display. Enshrined in a glass case, with a golden crown, rests the severed head of the 17th century Saint Oliver Plunkett. According to Encyclopedia Britannica, he was deemed Ireland’s patron saint of peace and reconciliation in 1997, making him Ireland’s first Saint in nearly 700 years. However, his life and death were anything but peaceful.Plunkett was born in Loughcrew, County Meath, in 1629. On October 23, 1641, when Plunkett was just twelve years old, the Irish people led one of many revolts against their English rulers. The uprising brought the death of thousands of English and Scottish settlers. Hundreds of Catholic clergymen were brutally martyred for the crime of “promoting the Roman faith.”The exterior of St Peter’s Church in Drogheda, Ireland, looking north from West Street.

In the 1950s, Plunkett himself became a Catholic priest.St. Peter’s houses the national shrine to Saint Oliver Plunkett.His mission was to restore peace and order according to the precepts laid down in the Council of Trent, which sought to defend Catholic teachings against challenges from the Protestant movement and to rid the church of abusive practices.Oliver Plunkett, by Edward Luttrell (died 1737).Until 1673, Plunkett managed to get along with the English Protestants. But when the persecution reemerged, he was forced into hiding for five years. Finally, he was arrested and imprisoned in Dublin Castle.The shrine of St Oliver Plunkett, in St Peter’s, Drogheda.

A few years later, some parts were dug up and brought to Rome and Ireland. In 1929, his head was brought to Drogheda and ended up at St. Peter’s Church, where it rests today.Amazing Mountain Top MonasteriesEvery year, thousands of people from all over the world visit this historic Church. But its breathtaking Gothic architecture and rich history are not its most memorable attraction. Saint Plunkett’s head sits as a solemn reminder of an age stained by the darkness of religious persecution.St. Peter’s in Dublin is not the only church housing grisly human relics, nor do all such relics belong to Saints. St. Lambert’s Cathedral in Munster, Germany, houses three iron hanging cages from the 16th century. The cages were not empty when they were placed in the church either. They contained the remains of three men who had been tortured and left to rot.Shrine of Saint Oliver Plunkett.

AOL Splashes Out 405 Million for Video Ad Platform Adaptv

first_img Register Now » Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. AOL took another step today toward becoming a major player in digital video with the $405 million purchase of Adap.tv, a video advertising platform. The acquisition of Adap.tv is the largest of AOL chief executive Tim Armstrong’s tenure so far.Adap.tv will be an independent part of AOL’s video division. It offers publishers programmatic ad-buying solutions, which means that ad buys are done through computational algorithms, like much stock trading nowadays. On Adap.tv’s platform, brands can buy and sell video advertising inventory, such as 30-second ads that air before YouTube videos.”AOL is a leader in online video, and the combination of AOL and Adap.tv will create the leading video platform in the industry,” said Armstrong in a statement. “The Adap.tv founders and team are on a mission to make advertising as easy as e-commerce, and the two companies together will aggressively pursue that vision.”AOL also reported earnings today. While its second-quarter revenue increased 2 percent to $541.3 million from the second quarter of 2012, its income plunged 97 percent to $28.5 million from $970.8 million at this time last year. But that quarter’s numbers were boosted by a patent licensing deal that netted the company more than $1 billion, according to earnings reports, so it isn’t an apples-to-apples comparison.AOL is shifting to branded media content as its subscription business continues to decline, though it isn’t shrinking as fast as one might expect. Millions of people are still paying to connect to the internet through AOL. The internet giant earned $166 million on subscriptions in its most recent quarter, a 5.4 percent decline from the previous year’s second quarter.That number is an improvement on the 12-percent decline in subscription revenue AOL saw during the second quarter of last year, which was the lowest rate of decline in five years, the company said. Obviously, AOL can’t rely on dial-up subscribers forever, and tapping the revenue they generate to help pay for a forward-looking acquisition looks like the right move.Related: YouTube Apps Suggest Videos to Watch Next Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals 2 min read August 7, 2013last_img read more

most warm-blooded creatures except for birds mice and rats) The audit included site visits to 29 of the more than 1100 facilities APHIS inspects as well as a review of APHIS records from 2009 to 2011 APHIS conducted at least 500 inspections of 107 research facilities that hadn’t housed regulated animals for at least 2 years—and some that hadn’t housed such animals for up to 13 years auditors found They calculate that APHIS a billion-dollar agency wasted more than $115000 on these efforts—not including employee benefits and travel expenses—and that the inspections diverted APHIS from investigating more problematic facilities Bennett takes issue with this part of the report noting that APHIS’s guidelines require it to inspect facilities that are registered as housing regulated animals regardless of whether they actually have animals “They’re hamstrung by the law” he says Far more concerning to him is a section of the audit that deals with APHIS’s Investigative and Enforcement Services (IES) The unit is tasked with probing serious violations of the Animal Welfare Act yet the audit states that IES has closed dozens of cases without investigating them One of these involved a research facility in Oregon that was supposed to euthanize a rabbit with a broken leg—but killed a healthy animal instead The audit also found that IES’s fines for animal welfare violations were on average just 14% of the maximum the government allows In response to prior complaints about APHIS’s low fines not deterring violators Congress authorized penalties of up to $10000 per violation in 2008 However the audit found that IES continued to slash its fines—often “without merit”—resulting in its lowest penalties in more than a decade “It’s pretty damning” Bennett says “This is the third audit in a row that IES has been questioned about how it handles its investigations and fines It looks like OIG has found that IES doesn’t do what it says it’s going to do” The audit also found that universities themselves are not doing enough to protect animals From 2009 to 2011 it noted violations by more than 500 Institutional Animal Care and Use Committees (IACUCs) which are overseen by APHIS These include IACUCs not adequately exploring alternatives to painful procedures misrepresenting the number of animals used in experiments and turning a blind eye to improper veterinary care An IACUC at a Maryland facility for example failed to ensure that researchers complied with a protocol for inducing tearing in guinea pigs; instead of placing chili pepper flakes on the animals’ cheeks the scientists were dropping them into their eyes Animal welfare and animal rights groups have long expressed concerns that IACUCs which are supposed to be objective are dominated by animal researchers who don’t make welfare a priority The audit confirms these fears says Kathleen Conlee the vice president of animal research issues at the Humane Society of the United States in Washington DC “IACUCs are not functioning properly and they’re failing animals” she says “It’s too much like the fox guarding the henhouse” Conlee gives credit to APHIS for being more transparent with its inspections than it has in the past but she says that the agency’s lax enforcement will hurt animals—not just now but far into the future “They’re falling down on the job” she says “If they aren’t taken seriously what’s the incentive for facilities to improve their animal welfare” For its part APHIS says agrees with the various recommendations in the audit including improving its inspections and levying harsher fines “APHIS welcomes OIG’s findings and is committed to continued improvement of our enforcement of the Animal Welfare Act and inspections of research facilities” it wrote in a letter to ScienceInsider “APHIS has already begun addressing these recommendations and anticipates completion by the end of September 2015” Bennett says he doesn’t expect the audit to have much impact on animal research labs His own analysis of USDA data shows that welfare citations have been dropping each year for the past 5 years “The veterinarians at these facilities don’t look at animal welfare in terms of whether they’re going to get dinged or fined” he says “They want to do a good job regardless of an audit”Islamabad: Pakistan is set to launch an ambitious space programme during the next fiscal year with an aim to keep an eye on the Indian side and reduce its dependence on foreign satellites for civil and military purposes according to a media report Representational image Reuters Several projects will be initiated to develop self-reliance capacity and reduce dependence on foreign satellites mainly the US and French satellites for civil and military communications The budget of the Space and Upper Atmosphere Research Organisation (Suparco) for the upcoming fiscal year 2018-19 is Rs 470 billion which includes Rs 255 billion for three new projects Dawn News reported Suparco has been regularly conducting activities each year to increase awareness of space technology and to promote its peaceful usage amongst students and the masses in Pakistan since 2005 The funding includes allocation of Rs 135 billion for Pakistan Multi-Mission Satellite (PakSat- MM1) and the country is also planning to establish Pakistan Space Centre in Karachi Lahore and Islamabad with the allocation of Rs 1 billion The third project is the establishment of Space Application Research Centre in Karachi with the budget of Rs 200 million in 2018-19 the report said The total cost of PakSat-MM1 is Rs 2757 billion and that of the space centres is Rs 2691 billion it added Advanced space programme is the need of time not only due to growing demand from the civil communications including the GPS mobile telephony and the internet but due to changing scenario in the region also analysts have said "There are two unusual developments in the region affecting the strategic situation: first of all Pakistan has to keep an eye on the Indian side and previously their programme had limited quality advancements but now the US has active cooperation with the Indian satellite programme" Maria Sultan a defence analyst said APHIS.
