Minister Denis Naughten, expects the bill to become law before the summer recess.Back in August 2011, six months after Brian Cowen’s government fell, things looked very different. We were respectful, but firm. And that’s how things have played out over the past six years. We participated, we resisted. We argued and protested. We persuaded, we persisted and we succeeded.Being for Leitrim, not just against frackingLove Leitrim was set up in 2011, after people started to hear about this onshore drilling technique and realised the impact it would have on the northwest and the country as a whole. Widespread industrialisation, permanent environmental degradation, and severe damage to public health was what we were facing. Still, we wanted to be positive – to be for Leitrim, not just against fracking.At the time, though, most of the government were for fracking – Pat Rabbitte calling it a “game-changer”. Through the grassroots work of many local groups, and the support of local politicians, we got the government to accept that the issue needed more study. This gave us time to make the case against fracking.Fracking is the fossil fuel extraction process of last resort – when you can’t just punch a few holes in the ground and pump, when you have to pepper the land with thousands of wells, inject each of them with millions of gallons of toxic fluid, and hope that the wells don’t leak, the cracks in the rock don’t connect with water sources, the lorries don’t crash and the ponds don’t spill. And to support this industry you create temporary low skilled jobs, imported high-skilled jobs, and eradicate the industries that have a long term future in the northwest.Fortunately, in Ireland people still have access to politicians. People can talk to local politicians, who are their neighbours; they talk to their national ones. We invited people from Canada and the US to Leitrim to hear their story. One of them, Jessica Ernst, stood on the stage at Leitrim’s iconic Ballroom of Romance and said “have some sympathy for your politicians, because they’re being lied to.”We never walked awayWell, some bought into the lie more than others, but we never walked away. We soon discovered that the machinery of decision-making can be used to achieve any outcome that political will was seeking. The strategy of the campaign was to change that will, from the ground up.We met every week for six years, appeared at marts and concerts, worked with other anti-fracking groups and with Good Energies Alliance, Concerned Health Professionals of Ireland, and Friend of the Earth. We knocked on doors, sold t-shirts, made submissions, raised our own funds and made our own luck.By 2015, the tide was beginning to turn, as the overwhelming weight of peer-reviewed research backed our view of fracking’s dangers. Attempts to commence drilling in Northern Ireland concentrated minds further.Parties like Sinn Fein, People Before Profit, and Fianna Fáil, began to propose restrictions in various forms. But the breakthrough was the Private Members Bill introduced by Sligo-Leitrim TD Tony McLoughlin. Private Members Bills are selected at random to be considered by the Dáil, and luckily Tony McLoughlin’s bill was selected and was accepted for consideration with cross-party support in October 2016.A Joint Oireachtas Committee studied the bill and rejected the report of the Irish EPA research, which could not confirm that risks to water and air quality could be mitigated. The committee’s report restated the Dail’s opposition to fracking and affirmed the legality and validity of the Bill, but accepted the Attorney General’s advice to amend existing legislation instead of passing a standalone bill.This was about health of communitiesIt was this Bill, amending the existing Petroleum Act, that was introduced by Tony McLoughlin and debated into the closing minutes of allowed time. With four minutes to spare, and no opportunities for rescheduling, the Bill was passed, to applause from the viewing gallery.Deputy McLoughlin, in recommending his bill to the Dáil, acknowledged the support of all campaigners. He also acknowledged the support of all the major parties in the Dáil, the result of over six years of local education, campaigning and building consensus. And selling t-shirts.This was never just about Leitrim though, or even climate change. It was about the health of communities. Communities that organised – messily, imperfectly, in their spare time, after the kids went to bed – and believed that faith in the political process is also part of a healthy community. A faith that on this occasion at least, was vindicated.Scott Coombs is a Leitrim resident and a member of Love Leitrim.‘Some parents have to open the coffin every two hours to put in ice-packs so remains stay cool’>Column: ‘It’s not fair to ask the public to subsidise uneconomic wind farms’> 700 Views Fracking: ‘We argued and protested.

first_imgGES : sept pays européens plaident en faveur d’une réduction de 30% d’ici à 2020Sept ministres de l’Environnement européens appellent les autres Etats membres à revoir les objectifs de réduction des émissions de gaz à effet de serre de l’UE. Dans une lettre ouverte publiée lundi par le Guardian, ils plaident ainsi en faveur d’une réduction de 30% à l’horizon 2020.Les ministres de Grèce, Grande-Bretagne, Suède, Danemark, Espagne, Portugal, et Allemagne, appellent leurs voisins européens à intensifier leurs efforts dans la lutte contre le réchauffement climatique, en acceptant de revoir à la hausse l’objectif de l’UE en matière de réduction des émissions de CO2. Les sept pays proposent de faire passer l’objectif de 20% à 30%.À lire aussiQui est Greta Thunberg, proposée pour un prix Nobel à seulement 16 ans ?Cet appel a été lancé quelques jours après que la Commission européenne a présenté sa feuille de route visant à aider les Etats membres dans leurs efforts pour maintenir à 2°C le réchauffement global de la planète, comme le préconisent les experts. Ce plan souligne que l’objectif de 20% d’ici 2020 ne suffira pas pour atteindre l’ambition fixée à l’horizon 2050 : une réduction des émissions de 80% à 95% par rapport à leurs niveaux de 1999. “Nous croyons qu’il est vital d’appliquer aujourd’hui, et non dans 40 ans, un plan faisant avancer les investissements nécessaires”, écrivent les sept ministres. Et de souligner qu’en plus de contribuer à la lutte contre le réchauffement climatique, le développement d’énergies propres permettra à l’Europe de réduire sa dépendance aux énergies importées, et “de concurrencer les économies émergentes sur les marchés en développement rapide des biens et services verts”.Le 15 mars 2011 à 19:02 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

first_imgDoug Edwards—who has been with IABHC for 18 years and previously served as editor-in-chief and publisher of the two magazines before rising to IABHC director in 2016—will remain with the group as part of HMP, as will eight other members of the IABHC team.On top last year’s acquisitions of the monthly EMS World and the affiliated EMS World Expo, from SouthComm, and medical events organizer Imedex, private equity-backed HMP says its portfolio now comprises some 275 events ranging from regional to international, across ten therapeutic areas.New York-based media M&A firm JEGI represented Vendome Group in the sale.M&A Activity SlowsSpeaking of JEGI, the firm released its biannual M&A overview, revealing an 8 percent year-over-year decrease in b2b media deal volume in the first half of 2018, but a seven-fold increase in deal value—a figure overwhelmingly driven by Thomson Reuter’s estimated $20 billion divestiture of its financial and risk unit to Blackstone. The other major transaction tracked by JEGI was Hearst’s $14 billion acquisition of the remaining 20 percent stake in credit rating firm Fitch Ratings.Activity also slowed on the consumer media side, down 31 percent in volume and 62 percent in deal value compared with the first half of last year. In typically theatrical JEGI parlance, the firm predicts “tectonic change in the digital media food chain” following the approvals of the AT&T/Time Warner and Comcast/Disney mergers, warning that “the concentration of content, distribution, and advertiser/subscriber relationships resulting from these deals is formidable,” and that the Verizon/AOL/Yahoo! merger looks “timid by comparison.” Healthcare industry publisher HMP has reached an agreement to acquire the Institute for the Advancement of Behavioral Healthcare (IABHC), including a pair of trade magazines and a suite of annual events, from Vendome Group for an undisclosed sum, the Malvern, Pa.-based company announced Monday.HMP’s third acquisition in 18 months as part of a pivot toward an events-focused strategy under CEO Jeff Hennessy, the deal includes the quarterly magazines Addiction Professional and Behavioral Healthcare Executive, as well as three national conferences—the National Rx Drug Abuse & Heroin Summit, the National Conference on Alcohol & Addition, and the National Cocaine, Meth & Stimulant Summit—and eight smaller regional summits.“We are in the midst of an alarming public health crisis with devastating consequences,” said Hennessy in a statement, “and we believe this agreement represents a real opportunity for HMP to contribute to one of the most important solutions for this crisis.”last_img read more

first_imgVegans across the United Kingdom are currently up in arms over the otherwise-well-received £5 currency note that was released in September, after the Bank of England admitted on Twitter that traces of animal fat were used in the making of the note. However, concerns are being raised that the use of fat derived from beef could also hurt religious sentiments. The new £5 note, also known as a fiver, was released in September this year and has received a generally positive response because of its features. For starters, it is made of polymer, so does not tear or soil easily. That also makes it easy to recycle. It also has more security features built into it. However, rumours soon surfaced that it contains animal fat — more specifically, tallow, which is a rendered form of fat from mutton or beef.Someone actually decided to ask the Bank of England, which replied on Twitter: “There is a trace of tallow in the polymer pallets used in the base substrate of the polymer £5 notes.”Hi @Jools_Orca there is a trace of tallow in the polymer pallets used in the base substrate of the polymer £5 notes— Bank of England (@bankofengland) November 28, 2016The admission kicked up a storm almost immediately, with vegans and vegetarians in the UK swearing off the new currency. Now, there is even an online petition on social activism platform Change.org that is batting against this new currency note. It says: “The new £5 notes contain animal fat in the form of tallow. This is unacceptable to millions of vegans and vegetarians in the UK. We demand that you cease to use animal products in the production of currency that we have to use.” At the time of the writing this report, there were more than 14,000 signatures on the petition. Religious sentiments at stakeAs the news spreads through social media via vegan and vegetarian channels, there are fears that some religious minorities in the UK could also be hurt by this change to the fiver. One big group that could take affront are Hindus, who — even when they are not purely vegetarian — do not touch beef because they consider cows holy. Given that the tallow used in the new £5 notes may have come from beef, it remains to be seen how the Hindu population — of whom there are 817,000, or roughly 1.5 percent of the population in England and Wales, according to the 2011 census — react to this news.last_img read more

first_imgThis file photo taken on January 27, 2017 shows Kellyanne Conway senior aide to US president Donald Trump speaking at the March for Life rally in Washington,DC. A key aide to Donald Trump was facing possible investigation on February 9, 2017 after pitching the clothing line of the president`s daughter Ivanka on television, in apparent contravention of ethics rules. Photo: AFP“Go buy Ivanka’s stuff,” a top White House adviser urged American shoppers on Thursday, a day after President Donald Trump sharply criticized a department store for dropping his daughter’s clothing line.“I hate shopping,” Kellyanne Conway told the Fox network in a televised interview, with the White House seal clearly visible over her left shoulder. But “I’m going to go get some myself today.”“This is just a wonderful line,” she added. “I own some of it. I fully-I’m going to give a free commercial here. Go buy it today, everybody. You can find it online.”To Washington traditionalists, Conway’s direct pitch from the White House for a product line sold by the president’s child seemed a jaw-dropping use of presidential prestige.But she was clearly channeling the anger expressed a day earlier by the president himself, when he tweeted that Ivanka had been “treated so unfairly” by Nordstrom, the upscale department store chain that dropped her line. “Terrible,” he added.The message from the White House again fanned debate over the unprecedented level to which the new president-despite his protestations to the contrary-has mixed politics, business and family, raising questions about conflicts of interest.After Trump’s tweet, shares in Nordstrom briefly dropped but soon began to rise. Toward midday on Thursday, the company’s stock was trading up nearly 7 percent over its closing price from two days earlier.Since his election in November, Trump has targeted a series of American multinationals by name (General Motors, Ford, Boeing, Lockheed and others) for moving production overseas or for allegedly overcharging the government.But this was the first time he had complained directly about the business interests of one of his adult children. The tweet appeared both in Trump’s personal feed and on that of the official presidential Twitter account, @POTUS.The Nordstrom group, with 350 stores in the United States and Canada, has repeatedly denied any political motive to its dropping of Ivanka Trump’s clothing line, saying it was motivated purely by “performance” considerations. Sales had fallen, particularly in last year’s second half.But products carrying a Trump brand, including Ivanka’s, have been boycotted by critics of the new president, leading to his complaint of a political motivation behind Nordstrom’s move.TJX Companies, which operates the clothing store chains TJ Maxx and Marshalls, told AFP on Thursday it had instructed store employees no longer to display Ivanka Trump products separately.“The communication we sent to TJ Maxx and Marshalls in the US instructed stores to mix this line of merchandise into our racks, not to remove it from the sales floor,” a spokesperson told AFP, confirming an earlier report in The New York Times.last_img

first_imgTIB executive director Iftekharuzzaman speaks at a press conference demanding rule of law, accountability and social justice on Saturday. Photo: Hasan RazaLamenting the deterioration of the state of human rights in the country, a recently launched civil society body has called for greater unity to ensure the security of the citizens.Referring to their claim that rights violation has become epidemic in the country, the rights body said that from January to April this year, at least 118 citizens were killed in alleged ‘gunfights’, 354 women were raped, 234 children were raped and 144 were killed while 6 were allegedly abducted. The civil society members, under the banner of Nagorik Nirapotta Jote (Citizen’s security alliance), came up with the remarks at a press conference demanding rule of law, accountability and ensuring justice at National Press Club on Saturday.The alliance, the speakers said, has been formed consisting of different social rights bodies of the country.Speaking at the programme, Transparency International Bangladesh’s (TIB) executive director Iftekharuzzaman said that the prime minister had pledged inclusive development in the country but that was not happening. Free thinking and freedom of expression is being stymied. People are not being able to participate in the development process and there is no accountability anywhere.He also said the institutions of the country should be reformed to stop widespread politicisation.Nijera Kori’s coordinator Khushi Kabir said the culture of fear has become pervasive all over the country.She urged all to protest unitedly to ensure democracy in the country.Rights leader Hameeda Hossain alleged that the government is not taking any steps regarding human rights violation. They were even flouting directives of court.Former chief election commissioner (CEC) ABM Shamsul Huda read out a written statement of the newly floated alliance that declared their 11-point demands.The demands included ensuring justice for extra judicial killings, safeguarding citizens’ freedom of expression, safety of religious and ethnic minority, strengthening the anti-corruption commission and also the election commission.They also declared programmes such as staging countrywide human chains and protests, submitting memorandums to the prime minister and other government bodies, to press home their demands.last_img read more

first_imgMaybe their moms told them nobody likes a showoff. That would explain why many species of chameleon are hiding fluorescent bone bumps on their heads that scientists only just discovered. Chameleons also have independently moving eyeballs, superlative tongues and sophisticated color-changing skills. The animals might use their glowing head bumps as signals to each other. These patterns of dots are invisible to a human eye, but may light up deep blue to the eye of another chameleon in a shaded forest.Scientists knew that chameleons have bony crests and bumps called tubercles on their skulls, and that these bone shapes vary between species. But “we were always wondering about the function of the tubercles on the head,” says David Prötzel, a herpetologist at Zoologische Staatssammlung München in Germany.Then a photo on Flickr caught Prötzel’s attention. The picture showed a chameleon called Calumma gastroaenia. The photographer, Paul Bertner, had put a UV light over the lizard, and three tiny tubercles on the chameleon’s head were glowing.Prötzel and his colleagues set out to shine a UV light on every chameleon they could get their hands on. The researchers checked hundreds of preserved chameleon specimens, representing dozens of species from Madagascar and mainland Africa. They also photographed a few living chameleons in the wild in Madagascar.The fluorescent bumps were everywhere. “We found that many species fluoresce with even larger pattern on their heads” than the animal in that Flickr photo, Prötzel says.Chameleons don’t light up like fireflies or glowing squid do, using chemical reactions. Instead, they take advantage of the fact that bone is naturally fluorescent under UV light. (Forensic researchers take advantage of this too.) Fluorescent materials absorb light of one wavelength and send it back out at a different wavelength.Under a microscope, the researchers saw that the bony tubercles on a chameleon’s head displace most of the layers of its skin. Only a thin layer of epidermis covers each bump. This thin skin “functions as a ‘window’ through which the bone is directly visible,” the scientists write.The fluorescent bump patterns were more common in types of chameleons that live in forests, as opposed to in open areas. These shaded forests have more ambient UV light than habitats under direct sunlight do. Males also carry more head bumps than females do in most species of the genus Calumma, which the researchers focused on. This suggests the glowing tubercle patterns are some sort of signal.Although we humans can’t see these patterns without shining extra UV light on an animal’s head, chameleon eyes have receptors for UV light. The researchers think the chameleons can see the patterns under the natural sunlight falling through a forest, “but we cannot prove that,” Prötzel says. The patterns might even appear brighter and clearer to the lizards than they do in the scientists’  pictures.Images: Prötzel et al.last_img read more

first_imgTags: ACTA, British Airways ACTA slams BA’s new GDS surcharge Posted by Tuesday, June 6, 2017 Travelweek Group center_img << Previous PostNext Post >> TORONTO — ACTA has weighed in on the decision by British Airways and sister carrier Iberia to impose a new fee on GDS bookings.“Travellers need consistency, transparency and choice. This can only be accomplished by providing content in all distribution channels. A surcharge imposed for booking through a GDS is not in the best interest of the traveller or our industry,” said Wendy Paradis, President of ACTA.It was reported last week that British Airways and Iberia will introduce an £8 (approx. Cdn$14) distribution fee on all bookings made through a GDS not employing an NDC-led connection. The surcharge will come into effect on Nov. 1, covering fares in all cabins and classes.BA’s move follows the introduction of a €16 (Cdn$24) fee on GDS bookings by rival Lufthansa in September 2015.The BA strategy will be another cost passed on to the consumer in the form of an added “tax”, fee, or surcharge, which for the travel agency is considered a Non-Commissionable Fee (NCF). This additional fee will require travel agents to collect and explain to their clients why they are having to pay extra for their booking with the added limitation to comparison shopping.More news:  Le Boat has EBBs along with its new 2020 brochureChannels that are exempt from the fee include its own website, airline sales offices and call centers, as well as:NDC direct connectionNDC via an IT service provider/aggregatorSelf-booking tools connected to BA or IB via NDCOther travel processors (including GDS), that adopt NDC based connections in the futureThe fee is being set to recover the higher cost of bookings through global distribution systems when compared with bookings made online or via call centers.ACTA takes this issue “very seriously” and has promised to evaluate the full impact of this additional fee.
