BC Oil & Gas Commission completes aerial survey on decommissioned wells

first_imgFORT NELSON, B.C. – The B.C. Oil & Gas Commission has recently completed an aerial survey that looked at 104 decommissioned gas wells east of Fort Nelson.As part of a mandate to ensure the integrity of decommissioned wells, the Commission says they have been conducting aerial surveys for the past three years using a laser-based methane detector mounted on the underside of a helicopter.By using the detector, it allowed for easy access to sites in difficult and inaccessible terrain, in a fast, cost-effective manner. The OGC says the long-term goal of this program is to obtain a representative sampling of decommissioned wells throughout Northeast B.C.During a survey in July, the OGC says they were able to identify four well sites where methane was detected. Following the detection, the OGC took the required actions to ensure that they are not leaking.The Commission says it intends to continue the aerial inspection program annually,focusing on different areas throughout the Northeast.last_img read more

Senior UN official in Haiti urges action to prevent sexual abuse

10 October 2007A senior official serving with the United Nations peacekeeping operation in Haiti (MINUSTAH) has called for action to prevent sexual exploitation and abuse by UN personnel. A senior official serving with the United Nations peacekeeping operation in Haiti (MINUSTAH) has called for action to prevent sexual exploitation and abuse by UN personnel.Speaking to participants at a UN-run workshop on the issue yesterday, the Secretary-General’s Deputy Special Representative, Luiz Carlos da Costa, stressed that sexual exploitation and abuse constitutes a serious breach that can result in instant dismissal.Addressing the problem is an essential issue for the UN, he said, emphasizing the need for all UN personnel to display exemplary conduct.“All those who, under the banner of the United Nations, work in Haiti have a mission to help the country to advance on the road to peace and progress,” he said. “We therefore have an essential role based on trust, and are expected to live up to a high standard of behaviour.”Mr. da Costa said it is “completely unacceptable that certain individuals betray this trust” by committing acts of sexual exploitation or abuse, or by overlooking them.Mary Anne Martin, who specializes in discipline issues, led Tuesday’s workshop, which included the participation of senior UN officials, other staff, and representatives of non-governmental organizations (NGO) and UN agencies. The aim was to lay the groundwork for preventing sexual exploitation and abuse, including the use of prostitutes, and came as part of the UN’s overall “zero-tolerance” policy on the issue.Ms. Martin emphasized the need to look at the problem comprehensively and define strategies which are best suited to address it. She called for participants to focus their attention on understanding the circumstances which give rise to misconduct to formulate appropriate responses. MINUSTAH, in line with the overall UN policy, has taken steps to combat the problem, including by having a conduct and discipline unit related to the Office of the Secretary-General’s Special Representative. read more


New UN Iraq envoy spotlights crucial role of media in ending conflict

6 November 2007Speaking in Amman, Jordan, today on his way to assuming his position as the United Nations Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Iraq, Staffan de Mistura stressed the key role of the media in resolving differences both within and outside the war-ravaged nation. “We count on the media to provide a platform for open debate, and that the public remains well-informed,” Mr. de Mistura, who will succeed Ashraf Qazi in his new position, told dozens of media experts, broadcasters, representatives of the judiciary and parliamentarians at a UN-backed media law workshop. Through its media networks, Iraq “must foster dialogue the free flow of information at all levels,” he added. “A solid legal framework within which the media operates is essential for this.” At the workshop organized – organized by the UN Development Programme (UNDP), the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the Iraqi Communications and Media Commission – he also underscored the necessity of transparency in communications within Iraq, the region and “most importantly from my perspective, between the United Nations in Iraq.” Mr. de Mistura – a national of Sweden and Italy – has experience in Iraq, having served as Deputy Special Representative in 2005-2006. read more

Seven convicted of operating paedophile sex ring in Oxford

first_imgSEVEN MEN WERE convicted in London today for sexually abusing underage girls, including one who was just 11-years-old, by plying them with alcohol and drugs before forcing them to commit sex acts.The guilty verdict followed five months of testimony indicating the paedophile sex ring exploited girls between 2004 and 2012 in the Oxford area, some 95 kilometers northwest of London.Speaking in the Old Bailey in London, chief prosecutor Baljit Ubhey said the girls were subjected to “truly appalling” abuse by a network of perpetrators.“No one, let alone a child, should ever be exploited as these young victims were,” she said. “The men who have been convicted have still failed to accept any responsibility for their crimes. They are nothing less than vicious sexual predators.”Prosecutors said seven of the men on trial were of Pakistani descent and two had family roots in North Africa.Most of the victims — whose names cannot be released for legal reasons — gave evidence from behind a curtain at the five-month trial, describing forced encounters and intimidation.One described how she was even threatened with arrest for wasting police time when she tried to report the abuse. She wept as she recounted how the gang threatened to burn her brother alive unless she had sex with them, saying that nothing happened after she went to police when she had decided to break away from her abusers.“They threatened on a number of occasions to arrest me for wasting police time for turning up at a police station in a state after running away,” she told the court. “Any self-respecting police officer would have seen something was wrong. If you pick up a child who is covered in cigarette burns and bruises, something is fundamentally wrong.”Another victim said the men told her she would be shot if she did not have sex with them. She was 14 at the time.The convicted men will be kept in custody until they are sentenced next month.last_img read more


iPhone 4 about to become Flickrs king of the cameras

first_imgAfter Cisco’s announcement last week announcing the end of the Flip camcorder, we told you why we think the pocket cam was doomed to fail. One of our main reasons was that it was just too much to carry around. With one less gadget in our purses and messenger bags, that leaves us carrying around a point-and-shoot and a cell phone. But, who needs that point-and-shoot when your phone has a perfectly good camera?It appears that Flickr users may have that mindset, which is evidenced by a series of graphs from Flickr data compiled over the last year. The graphs include any member of Flickr who has uploaded at least one photo or video in the past 12 months. As you can see in the graph above, the most popular cameras used are still primarily DSLRs. But the iPhone 4 is right on their tail, and is just about to push past the leader of the pack, the Nikon D90.A camera that cost $900 is apparently about to be beat in the camera popularity contest by the less-expensive and multifunction iPhone 4. The other three cameras shown on the graph are also DSLRs, and are all in the Canon EOS Rebel series.The graph of “popular point and shoot cameras” is a little worrisome, however. All five of the most popular cameras, which all happen to be Canon PowerShots, are steadily decreasing in popularity.Is the point-and-shoot becoming extinct? Just like the Flip, consumers may not feel the need to carry around a point-and-shoot that can produce pretty much the same quality of photos as their iPhone. And, if the rumors are correct, the iPhone 5 may be getting an 8-megapixel image sensor from Sony, meaning there’s even more reason to ditch your pocket cam for your phone’s camera.The graphs did show one non-Apple device on the list of popular camera phones, though. The HTC EVO 4G touts the 8-megapixel lens Apple fans are hoping to see in the iPhone’s next incarnation.Another reason why point-and-shoots may be getting the boot is that smartphones are really becoming the ultimate all-in-one device. You can also eliminate the extra step of uploading your photos to  your computer, and then to Facebook, and just upload your photos from your phone to your favorite photo- or video-hosting site.Read more at Flickr, via NYT Bitslast_img read more

GameStop is adding a 2TB hard drive to used PS4 consoles

first_imgI’ve never been a big fan of buying used games hardware. With used games you can see the state of the disc before you purchase, but with hardware, you can’t see inside and therefore are taking a bigger risk, especially if there’s a hard drive inside.GameStop has decided to sweeten the deal when it comes to purchasing a used PS4, though. As well as advertising these systems as being “Premium Refurbished,” GameStop has decided to upgrade them with a 2TB hard drive.Until recently you could only purchase a new PS4 with a 500GB drive, then the 1TB version was announced. If you want 2TB of space you need to upgrade yourself, or buy one of these refurbished consoles.GameStop is marketing them as PlayStation 4 Supercharged 2TB systems. You also get a free used PS4 game as long as the value is under $30. The price? $479.99. Keep in mind that a new 500GB PS4 is only $399.99 and this doesn’t seem like a great deal. It’s a used system with a larger hard drive, is that worth $80 more than a new model with a smaller hard drive that’s brand new?If you purchased a new 500GB PS4 ($399) and a new 2TB hard drive ($98), the total cost would be just under $500. Again, this makes GameStop’s used deal look not so great. I’m sure spending the extra $20 and getting all new hardware is going to be preferable for most consumers. GameStop does throw in that free game, though.Availability of these 2TB units will rely completely on how many used PS4 consoles and 2TB hard drives GameStop has to use. If the package proves popular, they’ll inevitably upgrade more used stock to keep the sales rolling. They’d be a lot more popular priced below $450, though. Right now it’s just too close to the new hardware pricing.last_img read more

first_img Videos | Cardiac Imaging | July 30, 2019 VIDEOS | EP LAB | JULY 26, 2019 VIDEO: What Electrophysiologists Need From CT Imaging Prior to AF and VT Ablations Mark Ibrahim, M.D., F read more February 25, 2009 – Millard Fillmore Gates Circle Hospital in Buffalo, NY, is reportedly the first U.S. stroke center to offer dynamic volume CT in an effort to reduce diagnosis time for stroke. Millard recently installed Toshiba’s Aquilion ONE dynamic volume CT system at the hospital’s Kaleida Health Stroke Center.The Aquilion ONE dynamic volume CT is reportedly the only medical imaging system that can image the entire brain and show real-time brain function in less time than traditional multi-detector row CT systems.Introduced in November 2007, dynamic volume CT scans an entire organ in a single pass and produces 4D videos that show an organ’s structure, its movement and blood flow. In comparison, a 64-slice, 128-slice or 256-slice CT scan can only capture a portion of an organ in a single pass, requiring physicians to “stitch together” multiple scans of an organ to get a full image. The new technology helps reduce multiple exposures to radiation and exam time, said the company.

Paphos Zoo tiger goes wild to boost population

first_imgPAPHOS zoo is celebrating as one of their hand-reared Siberian tiger cubs is about to be released into a protected forest in Russia to help increase the dwindling numbers of the animals in the wild.Ioulious Christoforou told the Cyprus Mail that he was ecstatic when he heard the news, as he hand-reared the female tiger cub named Aphrodite for the first part of her life. The female cub was born to Siberian tiger, Bonnie and Clyde in April 2015 at Paphos Zoo, but her mother was unable to produce enough milk, so Christoforou stepped in to help.“This is a very proud moment for all of us at the zoo and me in particular. I have a special connection with Aphrodite and it was every hard to say goodbye to her at the airport, I felt very sad, but I knew that she could possibly contribute to a good cause and now she is.”Aphrodite was transferred to the Lion Foundation in the Netherlands which has a partnership with the Severtsov Institute in Russia. The Lion Foundation, a non- profit organisation, is a rescue facility for big cats established in 2012, with the aim of preparing the animals for a return to the wild.The Siberian tiger, also called the Amur tiger, are a protected species. They can weigh over 300kg and live mostly in the mountain region in Russia. Intense poaching and habitat loss are seriously threatening the survival of Siberian tigers in the wild.After extensive tests, Aphrodite was paired with a male to assist in the conservation of the protected species.She was DNA tested and found to be a pure bred Siberian tiger and perfect for the programme, as she is strong, has a good temper and has many good characteristics, Christoforou said.“It is our dream to breed and rehabilitate animals and birds back into the wild and help protect them from extinction, and we are going some way towards achieving our goal in assisting the conservation of endangered species,” he said.The tigers will now to travel to Russia where they will be released into a protected forest area. Any offspring they produce will be released into the wild to help the struggling Siberian tiger population.“We are happy that we are breeding strong babies and are part of a number of breeding programmes.”The zoo also specialises in breeding birds and have experienced amazing results, he said, especially with parrots.Over the last five years, the zoo has produced around 20 Blue-throated Macaw, which are an endangered species, with around only 400 known in the wild.“We hope to help to rehabilitate these birds into the wild through a number of programmes,” he said.The zoo has also celebrated two successful hatchings of the extremely rare Red-tailed black cockatoos, and they are also part of a breeding programme.“We are improving all the time, we concentrate on keeping the animals and birds happy, enriching their lives in captivity, looking after them well, caring for them and giving them the best food we can,” he said.Chistoforou said that he also hopes that a group of Scimitar Oryx deer at the zoo will breed, as they were declared extinct in the wild in 2000.“A group of scientists are trying to rehabilitate some of these deer into their natural environment in the wild. If the programme is successful, we hope to join up and be a part of this too,” he said.Paphos Zoo, which is licensed from the veterinary department of the government, covers 100,000 square metres and opened in September 2003.            You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
