Report highlights utility failures in biggest US gas leak

LOS ANGELES — An investigation into the cause of the largest-known release of methane in the U.S. faults a California utility for the way it maintained its natural gas storage field before the massive 2015 blowout.The report released Friday by the California Public Utilities Commission says Southern California Gas Co. didn’t assess its wells for disaster potential and didn’t investigate previous ruptures.The report by Blade Energy Partners says the blowout that lasted nearly four months and was blamed for sickening thousands of Los Angeles residents could have been plugged sooner.The utility highlights a finding that said new state regulations and practices address most, if not all, of the causes of the Aliso Canyon leak.The report says a highly pressurized corroded pipe ruptured Oct. 23, 2015, and caused the blowout.Brian Melley, The Associated Press read more

Tourmaline shares tumble on disappointing Q2 and production guidance changes

CALGARY — Shares in Tourmaline Oil Corp. tumbled by as much as 16 per cent on Thursday morning after it missed second-quarter expectations and warned it expects to produce fewer barrels of petroleum liquids and more dry gas this year.The Calgary-based company’s shares fell as low as $14.54 from Wednesday’s close of $17.40 after it reported production during the three months ended June 30 of 280,500 barrels of oil equivalent per day, up eight per cent from the same period in 2018.Analyst Kristopher Zack of Desjardins said in a report that was below expectations of 287,000 boe/d and the liquids component of 52,000 boe/d — though a 13 per cent increase from the year-earlier report — was also lower than expected.He added cash flow per share of 83 cents, a reduction of 17 per cent from $1 in the second quarter of 2018, also fell short of consensus expectations of 96 cents.Tourmaline said in a news release it now expects to average liquids production of 61,000 barrels per day this year, down from an earlier estimate of 66,000 bpd, but still a 28 per cent increase over 2018.It said full-year total production guidance is unchanged at 300,000 boe/d despite cutting $25 million from its capital spending budget to leave it at $1.125 billion.The company said second-quarter production was hit by the deferral of about 60 million cubic feet per day of natural gas due to delays in starting up new wells and the injection into storage in Ontario and California of about 1.6 billion cf/d of gas. Both measures are designed to avoid current low gas prices in hopes of higher prices later this year.It added unplanned interruptions on the Enbridge pipeline system in B.C. reduced average volumes by an additional 3,500 boe/d.The company’s realized liquids price averaged $39.08 per barrel in the second quarter, while natural gas sold for $2.07 per thousand cubic feet.

Australias Aboriginal children essentially being punished for being poor – UN rights

“High rates of incarceration were described to me as a tsunami affecting indigenous peoples […] while Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders make up only three per cent of the total population, they constitute 27 per cent of the prison population, and much more in some prisons,” said Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, the UN Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous people, at the end of her official visit to the nation. The situation of youths and children from these communities is particularly concerning and the number of children being removed from their homes is increasing. For instance, at a youth detention centre in Townsville, Queensland province, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children constituted 95 per cent of the children detained. “These children are essentially being punished for being poor and in most cases, prison will only aggravate the cycle of violence, poverty and crime,” noted Ms. Tauli-Corpuz. “I found meeting young children, some only 12 years old, in detention the most disturbing element of my visit.” I found meeting young children, some only 12 years old, in detention the most disturbing element of my visit“As already recommended by the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, I urge Australia to increase the age of criminal responsibility. Children should be detained only as a last resort,” she highlighted. The expert also noted that Aboriginal children were seven times more likely than non-indigenous children to be in contact with the child protection system or to be subject to abuse or neglect. New relationship between Government and National Congress of First Peoples neededShe also noted that while numerous policies have been adopted to address the socio-economic disadvantage of indigenous peoples, these have failed to deliver on targets in the areas of health, education and employment. In particular, Ms. Tauli-Corpuz criticized the Government programme known as the Indigenous Advancement Strategy which was initiated in 2014 and involved a large budget cut in funding for support programmes. “The implementation of the strategy has been bureaucratic, rigid and has wasted considerable resources on administration. Travelling across the country, I have repeatedly been told about its dire consequences,” she said, pointing to threats that targets on closing the gap in areas such as life expectancy, infant mortality, education and employment would not be met. Urging for a comprehensive approach including specific objectives on reduction of detention rates, child removal and violence against women, the UN rights expert also called on the Government to forge a new relationship with the national representative body for indigenous peoples, the National Congress of Australia’s First Peoples, and restore their funding. In her remarks, Ms. Tauli-Corpuz also spoke of effective community-led initiatives in a range of areas including public health, housing, education, child-protection, conservation and administration of justice, and their potential in making immediate significant positive changes in the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. The rights expert will present a comprehensive report on her two-week long mission to the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council at its session in September this year.Special Rapporteurs are appointed by the Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a specific human rights theme or a country situation. The positions are honorary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work. read more

Iowa football locker room has visiting team thinking pink

Tradition is an important part of college football, especially in the Big Ten. From the Ohio State Marching Band playing “Script Ohio” to Michigan football players running out of the tunnel and jumping up to touch the “Go Blue” banner, traditions make every school unique. Saturday, the No. 9 OSU football team will play at the University of Iowa, where players will encounter another unique tradition. The visitors’ locker room is painted pink. “I honestly don’t know anything about Iowa, the state or just anything to be honest. I know that they have a pink locker room, that’s about it,” OSU senior kicker Devin Barclay said. The pink locker room for visiting opponents is a tradition started by former Iowa coach Hayden Fry in his first season in 1979. “Our facilities were a little bit dilapidated when I arrived, and every place I’d gone to that had a losing program, we tried to change the image,” Fry said in an interview with Iowa TV station KWWL. Fry put linebackers coach Howard Sissel in charge of changing everything from the equipment to the facilities. When it came time to improve the locker rooms, Fry said, “The only paint that Howard could find was pink paint. So we applied that to the visiting team’s locker room.” Fry graduated from Baylor University with a degree in psychology, so he knew the pink color scheme could provide a small advantage for his football team. “Me, being an old psychology professor, knew that would be relaxing, cool, calm,” Fry said. “If I wanted to fire the opposing team up, I would have painted it red.” OSU coach Jim Tressel will be making his third trip to Kinnick Stadium, where he holds a 1-1 record. In Tressel’s first trip to Iowa City in 2004, the Hawkeyes dominated OSU 33-7. The Buckeyes’ last game at Iowa in 2006 had a much better result for Tressel — OSU won 38-17. Tressel doesn’t think the pink locker room will be too much of a distraction for his team Saturday. “They’ve renovated their stadium, and the locker rooms are nice but they are a different shade, and that’s one of the old tradition things that was done so long ago,” Tressel said Tuesday at his weekly press conference. “Last time we were there, I didn’t notice it as a problem. Now, maybe two times ago that was the problem, I don’t know, but I’d like to think that won’t be the problem.” read more

LETTER Time to enact legislation to decriminalise the possession of small

Dear Editor,The current legal regime, as contained in the “Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (control) Act”, against the possession of small amounts of marijuana attempts to prevent a low quantum of harm to society at a very high cost. In other words, the costs imposed on the health care and welfare systems by marijuana use are negligible compared to the costs associated with enforcing current marijuana possession laws.Specifically, the provisions that mandate imprisonment as punishment are not appropriate in the circumstances.  The societal interest in prohibiting marijuana possession must take into account, on the one hand, the burden that marijuana use imposes on the health care system, and, on the other, the costs incurred by society because of enforcing the current laws. A cursory observation shows that the costs imposed on the health care system by marijuana are negligible compared to the costs associated with enforcing the current imprisonment regime.  While this opinion is based on observations, the state, via the Parliament, should fund and commission empirical studies to ascertain the extent of this, so as to be guided accordingly and act proportionately with respect to the penalties imposed.Additionally, it can be argued that the current laws stand in violation of the harm principle and civil liberties of individuals. As postulated by John Stuart Mill in his seminal work On Liberty: “The only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community, against his will, is to prevent harm to others.”In this regard, a criminal sanction of imprisonment should be reserved for those whose conduct causes a risk of harm to others and infringes on the rights or freedoms of other individuals.  The choice of using marijuana is a strictly personal decision, because it is the individual who suffers the change in perception, mood and state of consciousness brought about by the use of marijuana. It is the individual who deals with the consequences of his or her decision, without disturbing or affecting the rest of society. This becomes more so admissible when taken together with the establishment of similar legislation as the recently signed Tobacco Control Bill that prohibits public smoking.It is time that our policy makers enact legislation to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana.Regards,Clinton UrlingSociety of Marijuana Advocates for Reform and Treatment (SMART) Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedGanja legislation to be tabled ThursdayJanuary 6, 2016In “latest news”Once CariCom heads agree Guyana should decriminalise marijuana, says SMART memberJuly 4, 2018In “Business”Small amounts of marijuana for private use to be considered – PresidentAugust 22, 2016In “latest news” read more

Kaspersky discovers supercomplex Flame malware

first_imgIt seems that super-complex computer malware is fast becoming the weapon of choice for governments around the world. The Russian anti-virus firm Kaspersky has revealed the existence of a new piece of malware it calls, “one of the most complex threats ever discovered”. The so-called Flame malware is believed to have been operating since August 2010 at least.The last of this breed of malware was the Stuxnet worm that was designed to damage the equipment in Iranian nuclear facilities. Flame, on the other hand, is not designed to cause damage to vital system, but to gather a huge amount of data silently. An infected system will begin monitoring network traffic, taking screenshots, recording audio from the system microphone, and logging keystrokes. All this is done very carefully to avoid detection.Flame is not as single-purpose as Stuxnet, but is far from a wide-scale infection. The 20MB virus has been detected on about 600 systems belonging to individuals, businesses, schools, and government agencies. The Flame malware is about 20 times larger than Stuxnet was, making it very difficult to analyze, but researchers feel confident that this threat was designed with government backing. The question of which government is currently up in the air.Nations that have been targeted by the malware include Syria, Egypt, Israel, Iran, Sudan, and Saudi Arabia. Though, Iran was hit the hardest by far. Unfortunately, that group of targets does not narrow down the perpetrator much; those countries are of interest to many intelligence agencies around the world.Kaspersky is careful to point out that while August 2010 is the earliest confirmed instance of Flame, it could have been operating even before that. Because this malware is modular, it could continue to evolve long into the future.via BBClast_img read more

Bajaj Auto workers union threatens hunger strike at Akurdi plant in Pune

first_imgIn yet another sign of a conflict of interest between trade unions and corporates, Vishwa Kalyan Kamagar Sanghatana (VKS) — the trade union representing the workers of Bajaj Auto — on Wednesday, January 4, threatened to go on a two-day strike at Akurdi plant in Pune starting January 7 to protest against, what the union said, “anti-worker activities” of the Bajaj Auto management.Royal Enfield two-wheeler sales rise in December; Bajaj Auto posts fallThe union said in a letter to Bajaj Auto Managing Director Rajiv Bajaj: “It will undertake a hunger strike at the Shahid Datta Padale statue, opposite Bajaj Auto gate, Akurdi, on 7-8 January against anti-workers and anti-union activities of the Bajaj management.”The union demanded that eight workers fired two years back apparently on the charges of serious misconduct be reinstated. Further, it also alleged that active members were deliberately transferred and were given false charge sheets and show-cause letters by the company management.”The management is harassing our active members. They are issuing show-cause notices and even transferring workers. Besides, the issue of eight dismissed workers is yet to be settled,” Vishwa Kalyan Kamgar Sanghatana president Dilip Pawar told PTI.Additionally, Pawar said the workers are also dissatisfied because the wage-review process, which was due effective April 1, 2016, is yet to be finalised.In response, Baja Auto Executive Director Pradeep Shrivastava refused to discuss and take back the issue of dismissed workers. He said: “Only wages can be discussed.” In October 2016, the two-wheeler maker had offered workers a hike ranging from Rs 10,000 to Rs 11,500 to be paid over three years in three instalments. Shrivastava added that 100 per cent of the workers had accepted that offer.Production at the plant will not be affected by this call for a hunger strike, he said.At around 10:20 am on Thursday, January 5, Bajaj Auto stock was trading at Rs 2693 on the NSE. Most recently, the automaker launched the Pulsar 400, which is expected to rival Royal Enfield.In 2016, the stock has given a return of 8.08 per cent. Almost 10 mutual fund houses have invested in the stock, according to brokerage IIFL.last_img read more

A multitasking garden setting up aquaponics at home

first_img Facebook Comments Related posts:Cassava: tropical staple, drought-friendly… cancer-busting? Give green in 2015: presents that will live on all year Why you should plant this multitasker in your tropical garden today Give green in Costa Rica: holiday gifts that will live on all year If you are looking for more than lettuce greens and tomatoes from your home food garden, this may well be the solution: Over the past decade or so, inventive gardeners have come up with a marriage of horticulture and fish farming. Through aquaponics, or aquaculture, a gardener raises edible fish as part of a hydroponics system that grows vegetables and herbs without soil. Per square foot, aquaponics can be one of the most productive forms of agriculture, and is a perfect example of a a self-sufficient assembly of plants and animals that functions like an ecosystem, producing food for people without creating waste products or pollution.The water from the fish tanks can be used by the plants as a soluble fertilizer, while the plants filter the water for the fish. There are dozens of different kinds of fish that can be used for small or large scale production.  An aquaponics system that is functioning well can produce veggies every three months and a generation of fish in 9 months to a year.Costa Rica’s tropical climate also favors production all year round, and varieties of fish such as tilapia and guapote are available here in the country. As in hydroponics, there is a tremendous savings in water use, since water is recycled again and again.First off, find the right place for your garden. Poor lighting will result in poor growth of the plants, so it’s very important that the site receive good morning sun. The site should receive 6-8 hours of sun daily. This usually means the eastern and southern exposures of the home. One negative aspect of aquaponic systems is that they tend to cost a lot to get started, but you can save money by using recycled plastic contains for growing beds and fish tanks.Hydroponic systems also need careful attention to the quality of water for the fish. So let’s look at some of the different types of do-it-yourself aquaponics systems that gardeners can choose from for the home. There are plenty of tutorial videos and instructions online to help you set up your own aquaponic system.  Here are a few examples:A mini-garden container and aquarium setup is a nice way to start and a great project for the kids. Hook up the tray or container for lettuce or a tomato with a growing media, then connect to the aquarium with a small pump. This simple system helps the family learn how to manage the water quality for the fish. Remember to place the growing unit in a sunny area. See Aquaponics Journal.Vertical wall growing containers and a plastic barrel fish tank. In small areas it’s not top hard to attach containers to a sunny wall and connect them to the fish tank via irrigation tubing and a small pump. Once again, you can save by using recycled containers filled with the appropriate growing media.Plastic barrel fish tanks and growing beds.  These days it’s easy to acquire these reused barrels at Costa Rican estañoneras or barrel depots found in every town.  These blue barrels can be cut in half length-wise to make two garden growing beds and another barrel to raise the fish in. This system is less expensive and works in small areas. PVC pipes connect the growing beds with the fish tank and a pump circulates the water.Greenhouse hydroponics with larger fish tanks for continued food production. As you can imagine, the more fish you want to propagate, the more growing beds you will need to filter the water. In theory, a well-tuned aquaponic system can support one pound of fish per gallon of water. When starting out, however, it’s better to plan on stocking one fish for every 10 gallons of water to make sure the system doesn’t fall out of balance and the fish will have more room to swim.  Open water systems need screening to prevent mosquitoes from breeding in the system, like Aedes aegypti, which can carry dengue, chikungunya, and Zika viruses.Finally, there are several enterprises in Costa Rica that offer complete construction and maintenance of aquaponic systems. For example, in our hometown of San Isidro del General, local school Escuela del Valle has just received a donation of an aquaponic system that will act as a living laboratory for the students. Jim Gale of Permacube Revolution is putting the final touches on the project which includes aquaponics and more.It’s good to see that these types of educational programs are being started across the country to help our youth to become highly skilled in the art of home and community food production. When we can save money, eat healthier food, and help improve our environment, it’s a good step toward redesigning the habitats we live in.
