225 Million for Art Gallery of Nova Scotia Repairs

first_imgThe province is preserving a landmark pre-Confederation building in downtown Halifax by investing $2.25 million in repairs to the exterior of the Dominion Building, home of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. MLA Leonard Preyra made the announcement on behalf of Communities, Culture and Heritage Minister David Wilson today, Nov. 16, as part of the province’s new capital plan to make life better for families. “Halifax’s downtown is known for its distinctive architecture and with this investment we are acting to preserve an important aspect of our heritage for coming generations,” said Mr. Preyra “By investing in crucial repairs to the Dominion Building’s exterior we’re ensuring that this historic building will continue to play an active role in the life of our capital city.” The extensive repairs involve replacing the sandstone on the exterior walls of the historic building. The work began earlier this year with replacement of sandstone on the Hollis Street facade and will continue on the George Street side of the building in the coming months. The building pre-dates Confederation and has been the home of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia since 1988. Located in the heart of downtown Halifax, it is part of an historic block of buildings that include nearby Province House. “The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia is the keeper of the provincial art collection and as such it is very important to have a safe and sustainable building in which to house it,” said Mark Bursey, chair of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia’s board of governors. “On behalf of the board we welcome this capital investment and are pleased that Nova Scotians and visitors alike will continue to have access to this significant cultural asset.” This is the second time in the province’s history that government is releasing some details of the capital plan before the spring budget. This sends a clear signal of what the province intends to do in the year ahead and gives the private sector greater opportunity to prepare for upcoming projects, resulting in efficiencies and cost savings for the province. The capital plan invests in projects that are most important to Nova Scotians like emergency rooms, schools, roads and hospital equipment.last_img read more

One in five dads have not seen their kids on Fathers Day

Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Father’s 4 Justice have campaigned for more rights for fathersCredit:REUTERS/Luke MacGregor One third (32 per cent) had experienced, or knew someone who had experienced, distress or mental health issues after being denied access to their children.Matt O’Connor, the founder of Fathers 4 Justice commented: “These figures, lay bare the appalling scale and reality of the challenges dads face on a daily basis. Denial of access to their children, estrangement and mental health problems for millions of men has become the norm.”One of the aims of the campaign group is to secure dedicated political representation for men and boys, in the same way that women have a Women’s minister. They are also calling for a fully funded ‘safety net’, focused on addressing the alarmingly high rates of male suicide, depression and other health issues linked to family breakdown.The ComRes poll found that nearly one in six dads, (17 per cent) had experienced challenges accessing their children, while a quarter (27 per cent) knew someone who had.“Since we started our campaign in 2001, our helpline has received in the order of 750,000 calls, roughly one every 15 minutes, from men, or their partners who are struggling with access after separation, depression and mental health problems, or who are being unfairly treated by a system that seems rigged against them,” said Mr O’Connor.“These fathers just want to be able to see their kids and not have to go through a lengthy and expensive legal process to make this happen.”  CORRECTION: This article’s headline originally stated that four in 10 dads have not seen their children on Father’s Day. This figure in fact relates, as the article explains, to the proportion of fathers who have experienced this themselves  or know others who have experienced it. We have amended the article for clarity.  Campaigners from Fathers 4 Justice stand on the roof of the home of former Labour Party deputy leader, Harriet Harman One in five dads have not seen their children on Father’s Day, a new poll has revealed.According to a ComRes survey of more than 1,000 fathers, some 37 per cent said they, or someone they know, have experienced not seeing their children on Father’s Day. 21% of fathers surveyed had experienced this personally. If this is indicative of the general population, some 2.3 million men will not see their children today.The survey, commissioned by the campaign group Fathers 4 Justice focussed on men with children aged 18 and under.It also found that one in five fathers, (20 per cent) feared losing, or had lost contact with their children, and 22 per cent knew someone who had experienced this. read more

Gayle glad to repay Kings XI Punjab faith

Windies star Chris Gayle with Kings XI Punjab co-owner and Bollywood diva Preity ZintaSportsMax– Fresh off scintillating knocks for Punjab Kings XI Windies star Chris Gayle insists he is happy to repay the faith shown in him by the franchise and its team mentor Virender Sehwag who may just have ‘saved the IPL.’ The 38-year-old Gayle, who was close to having no takers in the IPL draft before being swooped up by Kings XI in the third round, has certainly proved to be a bargain so far with whirlwind knocks of 63 and 104 in impressive wins for the franchise.  On Wednesday Sehwag took to social media platform Twitter to joke that Gayle selection might just have saved the IPL, the West Indian agreed.“I’m always determined. I always give it my all for whatever franchise I represent. I’m a 100 percent. Like I said, it’s a new franchise. A lot of people might say that Chris has a lot to prove – he didn’t get selected or wasn’t picked early in the auction. I think Virender Sehwag has saved IPL by picking me. This is a brilliant start,” Gayle said in a post-game interview on Thursday.Initially, Gayle who was released by Royal Challengers Bangalore ahead of the IPL, was expected to play more of a substitute opener role for the franchise, after his performances in the last two games, however, it could be time to reconsider those terms.“Viru said in an interview that if Chris Gayle can win us two games, we have got our money’s worth. I’d like to have another word with Viru and see what happens from thereon,” he added.

Driverless tunnel boring machine transport just the start for MobileTronics and VirtuRail

first_imgBuilding on a world first demonstration of fully autonomous transportation of a tunnel boring machine (TBM) using trackless VirtuRail® trains at the Brenner Base Tunnel project, in Austria, in December, MobileTronics is setting new goals.The demonstration took place on the construction site ‘Ahrental’ of the STRABAG and Salini Impregilo-owned project, near Innsbruck, with the supply of the TBM realised by trackless trains. These rubber-tyred, about 60-m long trains consist of five single cars and enable continuous transport from the loading area to the TBM, via a 2.5-km long access tunnel set at a decline of close to 12%.MobileTronics’ VirtuRail System steers all 18 axles electronically, allowing precision handling where all axles follow the first in line. An additional driver assistance system guides the first axle automatically in the tunnel and is also used for obstacle detection. This system can guide the train around a 90°curve on 30 m radius at the end of the access tunnel.As MobileTronics’ Christoph Mueller and George Biro said, this autonomous operation did not take place in a closed special purpose area; all tests, as well as the showcase, took place in the regular working environment of the tunnelling construction site.Mueller and Biro said: “Extending the existing application to a fully autonomous system working safely in the tunnelling environment, from the technical point of view, would not require more than three to four months.“The main effort would be to install a central supervision workplace, which provides a central overview of the locations and status of the trains together with live video and the possibility for the remote operator to restart and manually manoeuvre in exceptional situations.”For future autonomous operation, the availability of a mechanical vehicle originally intended for fully autonomous operation, “with an optimised technical reliability of the underlying mechanic and hydraulic systems would be required”, according to Mueller and Biro.The company is also looking at completing a fully-electric operation as it looks to reduce emissions and boost environmental credentials. “This would also save significant cost for tunnel ventilation compared to diesel-operated machines,” the company said, adding that the electric vehicles were also likely to provide lower operating costs due to higher energy efficiency.“In the following projects, MobileTronics already has gained extensive experience in integration of battery- and hybrid-powered electric vehicles as well as in integration and configuration of the high voltage electric components including motors and frequency converters,” Mueller and Biro said.“The future VirtuRail trains, therefore, will be modular products made of reliable components designed for fully-autonomous operation, however with the option of manual operation from two cabins or only one driver cabin.”The applications for VirtuRail are not limited to TBM supply operations, with the trains potentially being used in mining for raw material transport: “In underground mines, for example, the use of rubber-tyred trains has the potential to replace dedicated train transport levels which will speed up the mining operations as the separate transport level does not need to be excavated before mass mining starts,” Mueller and Biro said.They continued: “Also in surface mining, VirtuRail trains have the potential to become an alternative to conveyor belt installations or traditional truck transport.”last_img read more

Verizon Wireless Ends New Every Two Program

first_imgVerizon Wireless customers could always trust that when their 2-year contracts were up, they would be able to get a discount from Verizon towards the purchase of a new device if they wanted to upgrade. The promotional discount ranged from $50 to $100 depending on the handset the customer wanted. Verizon has said they’ll end the program this month, and current customers with an upgrade coming will be able to get their discount one last time but then never again. This means that current customers will have to purchase upgraded phones at the end of their contract for the same pricing that new customers would pay, unless there’s a promotion that only new customers qualify for (in which case existing customers would have to pay the non-discounted price.) The only good news is that existing customers won’t have to pay full retail price for new phones at the end of their contracts, which for some smartphones can be several hundreds of dollars. [via CrunchGear]last_img read more

Consommation dalcool en hausse lOMS propose daugmenter les prix

first_imgConsommation d’alcool en hausse : l’OMS propose d’augmenter les prixFrance – Selon l’Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS), l’alcoolisme est en hausse chez les Français, et surtout chez les jeunes. Pour y remédier, elle propose une augmentation de la taxation des boissons alcoolisées ainsi qu’une réglementation plus stricte. Afin de “réduire l’usage nocif de l’alcool”, l’OMS entend restreindre la publicité vantant les boissons alcoolisées, mais également augmenter leur prix. En effet, l’alcool a tué 2,5 millions de personnes dans le monde en 2004, dont plus de 300.000 jeunes âgés de 15 à 29 ans. Ces derniers sont particulièrement influencés par les publicités promouvant les boissons alcoolisées, notamment celles associant “les marques d’alcool à des activités sportives ou culturelles”. De plus, ces spots publicitaires sont de plus en plus fréquemment envoyés via internet (courriels ou forums sociaux). L’OMS souhaite donc renforcer la réglementation à ce niveau.Le texte, qui propose “d’instaurer un système national d’imposition spécifique pour l’alcool, assorti d’un système de répression efficace”, a été adopté par 193 pays membres de l’OMS.

Toutefois, les auteurs du rapport estiment que les scientifiques auraient dû partager leurs données avec les sceptiques quant à l’impact de l’activité humaine sur le réchauffement climatique.”Nous avons conclu que la rigueur et l’honnêteté des scientifiques ne faisaient aucun doute mais nous avons conclu qu’il y a eu une tendance manifeste à ne pas faire preuve de l’ouverture adéquate”, a résumé l’auteur du rapport, Muir Russsell, un haut fonctionnaire britannique à la retraite.À lire aussiQui est Greta Thunberg, proposée pour un prix Nobel à seulement 16 ans ?Cette enquête est la troisième qui a été menée suite la publication en novembre dernier, de plus d’un millier d’e-mails échangés par certains des plus grands climatologues du monde.

Le 10 mai cest la Journée mondiale du Lupus

first_imgLe 10 mai, c’est la Journée mondiale du LupusL’équipe du Dr House en a fait son diagnostic favori, Michael Jackson l’un de ses combats de santé, le Lupus systémique est beaucoup mentionné, souvent évoqué mais personne ne sait vraiment ce que c’est. A l’occasion de sa Journée mondiale, focus sur cette maladie étrange.Le lupus est une maladie inflammatoire touchant quelque 5 millions de personnes dans le monde et entre 20.000 et 40.000 en France. Les femmes en âge d’avoir des enfants sont davantage touchées par cette défaillance du système immunitaire qui se retourne en quelque sorte contre l’organisme en attaquant les cellules saines. Les manifestations cliniques diffèrent en fonction des organes atteints. On distingue de cette manière, le lupus discoïde qui n’affecte que la peau du lupus systémique touchant de nombreux organes dont le rein, la peau, le cœur, les articulations… Ce dernier, scientifiquement nommé Lupus érythémateux disséminé, se manifeste différemment en fonction des individus. Ces variations ajoutées à la complexité et la multitude des symptômes rendent le diagnostic extrêmement difficile. Des symptômes importants mais une origine inconnue Les plus courants, les fièvres, les douleurs associées à un gonflement des articulations, les troubles de la vision et bien d’autres signes peuvent se confondre avec différentes affections et biaiser ainsi le diagnostic. Des difficultés accentuées par le fait que les causes du Lupus restent à ce jour inconnues même si quelques facteurs semblent favoriser sa survenue comme les rayons UV, certain médicaments (procaïnamide, quinidine, hydralazine) ou encore des prédispositions génétiques.Les prises en charge du lupus ont fortement progressé grâce à plusieurs traitements médicamenteux le plus souvent non curatifs et plutôt dirigés contre les symptômes. Les anti-inflamatoires et en particulier les corticoïdes tels que la prednisone et la méthylprednisone s’avèrent assez efficaces pour traiter les effets de la maladie lorsque celle-ci touche plusieurs organes. Si le lupus atteint les reins ou le système nerveux, des immunosuppresseurs sont prescrits de manière à réprimer chimiquement les effets de notre système immunitaire.Une maladie mal connueÀ lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Au vu de la rudesse d’identification du Lupus et de la multitude des symptômes, les patients comme les médecins se heurtent parfois à l’incompréhension. Par manque de familiarité avec la maladie, les généralistes ne parviennent pas systématiquement à la déceler alors que les patients restent de leur côté, parfois plusieurs années sans consulter. Les diagnostics et par conséquent les traitements efficaces sont ainsi loin de profiter à tous les “lupiques”.Les progrès de la médecine ont clairement amélioré les traitements du Lupus, une maladie qui s’avérait jadis mortelle au bout de quelques années. Certaines formes sont cependant toujours très graves comme celles comportant des atteintes viscérales. D’autres restent plus bénignes à l’instar des formes cutanéo-articulaires.Cette journée proclamée en Angleterre par un comité international représentant 13 pays, a donc pour objectifs d’informer le grand public et les médecins ainsi que de développer les traitements en encourageant la recherche et en récoltant des fonds.Le 10 mai 2012 à 19:05 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Frank de Boer criticise Gabigol

first_imgFormer Inter Coach Frank de Boer has condemned striker Gabriel ‘Gabigol’ Barbosa, saying that he has a poor ethical mindset to work and only about “thinking himself a superstar.”Gabigol was signed at the age of 20 from Santos but couldn’t impress. He scored just one goal without any Serie A starts. He has now been loaned out to Benfica where he had barely improved, before being returned to Santos on loan with an option to buy.“Gabigol thought he was still in Brazil and would walk rather than run,” De Boer told ESPN via Football Italia.“He wanted to receive the ball without running into space, he didn’t understand that he had to train hard. It’s no coincidence that with me he practically never played for Inter.De Boer does not believe in equal pay in sports George Patchias – August 13, 2019 Frank De Boer has said that equal pay for men and women in football is ridiculous.According to ESPN, The Atlanta United manager quite simply…“He has to look at himself in the mirror, prove every day that he can be the best or at the very least a good player, not thinking himself a superstar.“After all, he only won the Olympics with Brazil and that’s it… He has to prove to himself, his teammates and the Coach that he’s a good player.“The potential is there to be a fantastic player, as he has a great left foot, but European football is not the same as in Brazil. I hope he can learn that soon, otherwise it’ll be a loss for Brazilian football too.”last_img read more

Ulmer traveled back to the U.S. using the stolen passport of his brother, Wayne Jacob Ulmer, Jr., just days before Judicial Investigation Police (OIJ) began to treat Struncova’s disappearance as suspicious.The Tico Times previously reported that the 31-year-old Struncova went missing after returning to her home in the Pacific beach town of Tamarindo from a party. Struncova’s friends told police they last saw her entering the apartment, which she shared with Ulmer and four others, around 1:00 a.m. on Dec. 5, 2010.Ulmer told friends that Struncova left that same night to travel to Limón, but they said they were unaware of any planned trip to the Caribbean.On Dec. 6, 2010, Ulmer asked his roommates to borrow a 9-foot long surfboard bag. Later that day he borrowed a car, supposedly to “drop off some things of Barbara [Struncova]’s” in Playa Hermosa.
