Govt says emissions deal with California may be illegal

DETROIT — The Latest on the escalating fight between the Trump administration and California over automotive emissions and fuel economy standards (all times local):11:45 a.m.Two federal agencies have told California officials that a deal with four automakers to abide by tougher emissions standards appears to violate federal law.In a letter dated Friday, the Department of Transportation and Environmental Protection Agency said the Clean Air Act and other laws prohibit states from setting motor vehicle fuel economy standards.In July, Ford, Honda, Volkswagen and BMW reached a deal with California to abide by standards that are tougher than those preferred by the Trump administration. Pollution standards are closely linked to fuel economy.The move bypassed the Trump administration’s plan to freeze emissions and fuel economy standards adopted under the Obama administration at 2021 levels.The automakers agreed with the California Air Resources board to reduce emissions by 3.7% per year starting with the 2022 model year, through 2026. They would have gone up by 4.7% per year through 2025 under the Obama standards, according to California.___11:35 a.m.The U.S. Justice Department is conducting an antitrust investigation of four automakers that have signed on with California in a deal to toughen tailpipe emissions standards.Ford spokesman T.R. Reid confirmed Friday that the company received a letter from Justice informing it of an inquiry. He says the company is co-operating with the department.In July, Ford, Honda, Volkswagen and BMW reached a deal with California to abide by standards that are tougher than those preferred by the Trump administration. The standards are closely linked with fuel economy requirements.The move bypasses Trump’s push to relax pollution and mileage standards nationwide that were set by the Obama administration.The Justice Department wouldn’t comment on the investigation.The Associated Press read more

Clippers walk off on DimeADog night

As if 10-cent hot dogs weren’t enough, the Columbus Clippers delivered a walk-off win for fans in attendance at Monday’s Dime-A-Dog Night at Huntington Park. Clippers second baseman Gregorio Petit hit a two-out, two-run double to left field in the bottom of the ninth inning to give Columbus a 4-3 win over the visiting Indianapolis Indians. With runners on first and third and down to his last strike, Petit lined a 1-2 pitch from Indians reliever Tim Wood into left field sending Ryan Spilborghs home from third to tie the game. When Indianapolis left fielder Gorkys Hernandez failed to field the ball cleanly, it allowed Trevor Crowe, running on contact with two outs, to score all the way from first. “I knew I tied the game when it came off the bat,” Petit said after the game. “And when I saw Hernandez struggle with the ball, I knew we had Crowe at first and he can run.” With its back against the wall, Columbus needed Petit’s heroics to get the win, but it was the bullpen that kept the team in the game. “I thought our bullpen did a really good job of keeping us close and giving us a chance to win in the ninth,” Columbus manager Mike Sarbaugh said. “Hagadone, Ray and then Herrmann in the ninth, I thought that was the key.” Clippers starting pitcher Chris Seddon struggled out of the gates giving up a home run on the game’s second pitch. The left-hander allowed three runs on five hits in four innings of work, leaving the game with his team down 3-1. Columbus relievers Nick Hagadone, Chris Ray and Frank Herrmann combined for five scoreless innings, allowing just two hits. Indianapolis starter Charlie Morton pitched well for the Indians, going seven-and-two-thirds innings. Down for rehab from Indianapolis’ parent team the Pittsburgh Pirates, Morton allowed one run on six hits, striking out eight. “You’ve got to give credit to (Morton),” Sarbaugh said. “He used all of his pitches effectively and we couldn’t really get anything going against him.” Morton kept the Clippers off the scoreboard for most of the game, but when he gave way to the bullpen, Columbus was able to capitalize, scoring three of its four runs in the ninth off Indians relievers. Kept in check for the better part of the night, the Clippers offense managed to come alive when it needed to. “That’s what fighters do right?” Petit, who was 0-for-3 with two strikeouts before his game-winning double, said. “Fighters fight, and that’s how we are. We just battle the whole game and we never give up.” The game was the first Dime-A-Dog Night of the 2012 season. The promotion is usually held once a month at a Monday home game, but it will get special treatment because of the city of Columbus’ bicentennial this year. “It’s one of those Columbus traditions,” Clippers media director Joe Santry said. “And because of that, we’ll do it every Monday.” Columbus and Indianapolis play the second game of a four-game series Tuesday with the first pitch scheduled for 6:35 p.m. The next scheduled Dime-A-Dog Night is Monday April 30. read more

Fenner launches new range of ultra high strength Wedge belts for tough

first_imgDesigned specifically for use in heavy duty and harsh conditions, the global launch of the Fenner Ultra PLUS 140 range of wedge belts follows field testing in tough mining applications in Australia. Ultra PLUS 140 is available in two cross section sizes, SPB (16 x 13 mm) and SPC (22 x 18 mm), and in a range of lengths from 2.8 to 10 m. Both belt sections employ the very latest in materials and construction technology, bringing what is essentially a 60 year old design right up-to-date. The belts are named due to their enhanced transmission capacity, offering 140% of the power rating of regular Fenner Power Plus PB wedge belts. The inner load bearing cords are made from aramid fibre.  The aramid cords are surrounded by chloroprene rubber (CR) which provides greater wear life than regular compounds, and is more resistant to heat, oils and chemical exposure. This material also provides improved electrostatic conductivity performance and, similar to other belt drive systems, affords a degree of protection from shock loading.The belts are double wrapped in a hard wearing woven polyester-cotton fabric impregnated with CR. The fabric weave has been woven at a specially developed angle of warp vs. weft rather than the traditional 90 degree weave. This innovative weave pattern gives the belt greater bending flexibility, maintaining drive efficiency whilst protecting the internal working components of the belt.This added flexibility results in drives using these belts offering a fully tested drive efficiency of up to 96%, far higher than most gear or chain drives would be expected to deliver in heavy duty applications. The high efficiency figure relies on the belts being fitted to the correct dimension cast iron pulleys, aligned correctly, and tension adjusted to within recommended operating limits.Fitting the new belts correctly can be achieved more easily using the Fenner installation and alignment kit, which includes a pulley groove wear gauge, a tension gauge to help install correct tension, and an alignment cord for simple, effective pulley alignment. Laser alignment tools are also available separately.Ultra PLUS 140 wedge belts are designed to be used in 3,4,5,6 or 8 groove pulley drives, as a new installation or as replacements. In new installations the belts can contribute to reduced drive costs, due to their higher power rating which allows the use of fewer belts, yet delivering the same effective drive life.For existing drives, fewer belts need to be purchased and fitted to existing pulleys. Either way there is a significant cost saving.  Best practice recommends that the pulleys are changed every other time the belts are replaced under heavy wear conditions. This keeps pulley grooves in optimum condition, contributing immensely to maintaining drive efficiency.Normal wear conditions for the Ultra PLUS 140 are, however, expected to be considerably longer than for conventional belts with one layer of wrapping, which typically have natural rubber based cores and lower strength polyester cord materials. Individual Fenner Ultra PLUS 140 belts are rated at 22 kW and above, but in multiples have been used to provide power transmission for systems up to 900 kW.These new, larger section Fenner wrapped wedge belts are designed to drive large rotating plant such as pumps, conveyors, fans, crushers and separators, typically used in mining.last_img read more

Video Shatter says TDs playing silly political games over penalty points

first_imgJUSTICE MINISTER ALAN Shatter has criticised TDs Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan and Mick Wallace for their reaction to the penalty points controversy, saying Flanagan had “made something of a circus” out of the issue.Speaking outside Leinster House this afternoon, the Justice Minister also  said that Independent TD Mick Wallace was playing “silly political games” by calling the report into penalty points a “whitewash” before he had read it.The Minister also spoke about a proposal which could see mobile phone networks shut down in certain areas during the G8 summit which takes place in Fermanagh in June.He said that the new law would be necessary to compel phone companies to cooperate in the event of an unprecedented attack.(Videos: Hugh O’Connell/YouTube)- Additional reporting by Christine BohanRead: Shatter versus Ming: Justice Minister takes aim at ‘self-serving’ TD > Read: Mobile phone networks could be shut off during G8 due to terror threats > Read: Three ‘posible breaches’ identified in penalty points report >last_img read more

Watch the World War Z trailer with swarms of the undead

first_imgIn case you haven’t seen it yet, the trailer for World War Z is available for viewing. The movie isn’t landing until the summer of 2013, but it’s a highly anticipated release starring Brad Pitt and lots of extremely fast zombies.The movie is based on Max Brooks’ 2006 book, which was later made into a highly acclaimed audio book (which you should definitely listen to) starring Mark Hamill, Alan Alda, John Turturro, Henry Rollins, and other big names.The movie, while it certainly looks exciting, reportedly only uses the premise of the book and disregards its after-the-fact retelling of humanity’s war against the undead. As you can see in the trailer the movie will be action-packed, with a progression of things going from normal to bad to apocalyptic, while the book was made up of different characters explaining how they made it through the war and how the humans triumphed over overwhelming odds.Making an action movie out of a calm, cerebral, and haunting account of the near-extinction of the human race seems to be a shame, as it takes Brook’s unique book and turns it into 28 Days Later on a worldwide scale (which many close-ups of Brad Pitt’s perfect bone structure).The movie is slated to be released on June 21, 2013. We’ll all, almost certainly, still be tired of zombie films, games, and literature by that point, but we’ll go see it anyway.last_img read more

A national trauma There are now 9987 people living in homeless accommodation

first_img 51 Comments 12,581 Views Feb 27th 2019, 5:03 PM Short URL There was a decrease of people in emergency accommodation in December, which we understood at the time to be partly due to seasonal reasons, and so an increase in January was anticipated but that doesn’t mean it is acceptable.The minister went on to say that government was seeing “some very positive movements when it comes to families in emergency accommodation”.In relation to the families, Murphy said that over the past two months people working in homelessness services had exited more families from homelessness and into tenancies than have entered emergency accommodation. “Families in emergency accommodation are at their lowest point for a year,” the minister said.If these movements can be sustained as trends in 2019 then we will make important inroads into the crisis this year.The Housing Department said that a total of 97 families exited emergency accommodation to an independent tenancy in Dublin in January, while a further 96 families were prevented from entering homelessness.  Despite a small reduction in the number of homeless families, the number of children homeless rose last month by 65. In Dublin – where the problem is at its worst – the number of homeless children increased by 20.The number of homeless families living in commercial hotels in Dublin decreased by 32 – from 703 in December to 671 in January. “A national trauma”The government has come in for criticism from non-governmental organisations and opposition figures for the latest rise in homeless numbers. Merchants Quay Ireland, the national homeless and addiction charity, said that the latest homeless statistics represent an ongoing national trauma.“Homelessness and addiction are combining with devastating effects,” said CEO Paula Byrne.“The latest homeless statistics show that Ireland is experiencing its biggest social crisis in generations.The high level of homelessness, as shown in today’s figures, coupled with Ireland’s ongoing drug epidemic, is causing a deep and widespread trauma.Anthony Flynn – CEO of Inner City Helping Homeless – said “enough is enough” and called for the establishment of a task force on homelessness.Solidarity TD Mick Barry said that “any government which allows homelessness to touch the 10,000 mark does not deserve to remain in power”. Labour’s housing spokesperson Jan O’Sullivan said that the figures pointed to “how unfit for purpose” Rebuilding Ireland – the government’s Housing Action Plan – had become. “This happens on an annual basis, and it shows that the same patterns are not being recognised by the government and not being addressed,” she said.How many more times will these numbers go up before the Minister takes action? O’Sullivan called for better protections for people living in the private rental market as a means of easing the number of people coming into homelessness. Meanwhile, Sinn Féin spokesperson Eoin Ó Broin said that figures showed that “Rebuilding Ireland is failing and will continue to fail”.“The Minister has called the figures disappointing. This is deeply insulting to all those people left homeless as a result of his failures. Today’s figures are an outrage,” Ó Broin said. He called for Murphy resignation and said the government should scrap Rebuilding Ireland.In his statement, Minister Murphy also pointed towards an increase in the social housing stock in the country last year and increased building as a means to tackle the homelessness crisis.  ‘A national trauma’: There are now 9,987 people living in homeless accommodation in Ireland This is an increase of 169 adults and 65 children on last month.

If they want to talk, they can talk.”A landmark 2015 nuclear deal between Western powers and Iran all but collapsed after Trump unilaterally withdrew US support last year, reimposing sanctions that have crippled Iran’s economy.Macron has been leading efforts to defuse the crisis by finding ways of resuming dialogue, meeting Iran’s top diplomat Mohammad Javad Zarif for rare talks in Paris on Friday on the eve of the summit.He has also held telephone talks with President Hassan Rouhani.On Sunday, a diplomatic source said G7 leaders had mutually agreed to task Macron with sending a message to Iran.“Emmanuel Macron was mandated to talk with Iran and address a message” to the country to avoid an escalation in the region, said the source.The G7 summit of world leaders commenced yesterday and will conclude tomorrow. G7 summits, which are attended by the leaders of Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States, were once a meeting of like-minded allies, but have become a diplomatic battlefield under Trump.Host President Emmanuel Macron wants to make the three-day meeting of the group of seven nations, which started yesterday, an example for international forums.In an attempt to break the ice, he treated Trump to an unscheduled lunch as soon as he arrived on Air Force One.Speaking to reporters in English, Macron called Trump “a very special guest” and aides later said that the two men had found some common ground, notably on the Iran nuclear crisis.- © AFP 2019center_img Image: PA Wire/PA Images Share14 Tweet Email1 16,203 Views France’s President Emmanuel Macron and US President Donald Trump at the G7 Summit in Biarritz, France.

Le Skate Acqua propose lexpérience smartphone pour le grand public

first_imgLe Skate Acqua propose l’expérience smartphone pour le grand publicÉquipé d’un processeur peu puissant, le Skate Acqua ne brille pas par ses performances. Pourtant le tout reste bien équilibré, avec un bel écran dans un bel écrin. Il pourrait bien devenir un smartphone low-cost très populaire.Le Skate premier du nom était déjà un smartphone à prix réduit. La nouvelle version actualise la technologie à l’intérieure, tout en restant dans le bas de gamme de son époque : 1 GHz de coeur. Le nom « Acqua » s’ajoute pour la désigner, un mot italien qui combine plutôt bizarrement ses lettres pour le reste du monde. Nul ne sait quand il débarquera, mais il restera dans la branche bas-prix pour intéresser ceux n’ont jamais eu de smartphone ou qui ne veulent pas investir.Niveau design, la coque des Skate Acqua disponible en démonstration au Mobile World Congress est en plastique noir, texturé pour mieux adhérer et sembler moins lisse. Une arrête métallique rehausse le pourtour. L’écran mesure 4 pouces et le téléphone fait environ 10 mm d’épaisseur, plutôt fin.La définition était de 480×800, bien suffisant, mais la brillance et le coté flashy de l’écran n’aide pas forcement à la lecture, mais il rendra en tout cas les images ou clips YouTube plutôt éclatants. L’Os est Android 2.3.C’est tout de même un défi osé de proposé un téléphone simple cœur quand les guerres d’aujourd’hui se battent au rythme des duals ou quad-core. Le 29 février 2012 à 14:15 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Di Maria refuses to rule out summer move

Di Maria refuses to rule out summer move

first_imgParis Saint-Germain’s Angel Di Maria has refused to rule out the prospect of leaving in the summer transfer window, despite admitting that he is happy at the clubDespite fears that the arrivals of both Neymar and Kylian Mbappe may have caused him to become somewhat of a fringe player this season, Di Maria has enjoyed a superb third season at the French capital.The Argentine has shone in Neymar’s absence from the squad and he has had 21 goals and 15 assists in 42 appearances in all competitions.“When the club made those signings in the summer, I knew it would be tougher to win a place in the team,” Di Maria told France Football (via Ligue 1 website).“Not because I didn’t feel that I was capable, but because a player who signs for a club gets game time. It’s the same everywhere, be it here or in China. I knew it would work that way. There was a moment where I almost left, but the club didn’t want me to and so I stayed to help achieve the objectives.”The former Real Madrid and Manchester United winger is under contract at PSG until 2019 and is not against the idea of pursuing other options in the near future.Opinion: Neymar will earn respect back from the PSG fans Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After completing his incredible return to Parc des Princes, we predict that Neymar will earn the respect back from PSG supporters.The situation between Neymar…“I’m very happy here, but the club needs to bring players in and to do that, they need to sell as well,” Di Maria explained.“So it’s impossible to say with 100 percent certainty whether or not I will stay. The decision is not entirely mine to make – it’s the clubs too. Both parties have to be on the same wavelength for things to continue.”Di Maria is certain that PSG’s decision to release Unai Emery at the end of the season does not have any bearing on his future.“It’s not the coach who decides a player’s future,” said the 30-year-old.“He can give his opinion, obviously, but in the end, it’s the club that decides who stays and who goes. Often, the coach doesn’t really get to have a say.”last_img read more

Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. (Phys.org)—A team of researchers from several institutions in Australia has developed a model that sheds light on the social factors involved in getting users to cooperate on water conservation efforts. In their paper published in the journal Nature Human Behavior, the group describes the factors they used to build their model and what it revealed.center_img More information: Juan Carlos Castilla-Rho et al. Social tipping points in global groundwater management, Nature Human Behaviour (2017). DOI: 10.1038/s41562-017-0181-7AbstractGroundwater is critical to global food security, environmental flows, and millions of rural livelihoods in the face of climate change. Although a third of Earth’s largest groundwater basins are being depleted by irrigated agriculture, little is known about the conditions that lead resource users to comply with conservation policies. Here we developed an agent-based model of irrigated agriculture rooted in principles of cooperation and collective action and grounded on the World Values Survey Wave 6 (n = 90,350). Simulations of three major aquifer systems facing unsustainable demands reveal tipping points where social norms towards groundwater conservation shift abruptly with small changes in cultural values and monitoring and enforcement provisions. These tipping points are amplified by group size and best invoked by engaging a minority of rule followers. Overall, we present a powerful tool for evaluating the contingency of regulatory compliance upon cultural, socioeconomic, institutional and physical conditions, and its susceptibility to change beyond thresholds. Managing these thresholds may help to avoid unsustainable groundwater development, reduce enforcement costs, better account for cultural diversity in transboundary aquifer management and increase community resilience to changes in regional climate. Although we focus on groundwater, our methods and findings apply broadly to other resource management issues. Throughout history, humans have been pulling water from rivers, lakes and streams to drink and to grow crops. More recently, humans have found it possible to access underground sources and have tapped into those, as well. Historically, there has been enough water to suit needs, but most scientists agree that is about to change. Underground water reservoirs such as aquifers are being depleted, and will soon run dry if something does not change. In this new effort, the researchers looked at the social factors involved when people in areas where water is likely to become scarce are pressed to cooperate in water conservation efforts.To create their model, the researchers chose three real-world locations that are believed to be at risk: the Murray–Darling Basin in Australia, the Punjab on the India/Pakistani border and California’s Central Valley in the U.S. They analyzed historical and physical data from all three regions, along with information from sources describing measures previously taken to coax such water users to conserve water, such as the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act in California. The group also added factors that account for social norms using cultural theory (grid–group or plural rationality)—all to answer three basic questions. The first involved revealing the relationship between those seeking to monitor water usage and their enforcement abilities, and the degree to which farmers and other water consumers complied. The second sought to better understand how social norms are involved in resource conservation efforts; the third was to find out which of the three regions under study was most likely to succeed in their efforts.The model showed that punishing water abusers in cooperative cultures such as in the Punjab was reasonably effective, whereas in places like the U.S. and Australia, the best approach appeared to involve inserting cooperative role models into a region who could persuade others to adopt conservation efforts.

Designed for community and critical access hospitals as well as outpatient imaging centers, the Somatom Perspective helps facilities extend the range of available examinations to patients in their community at reduced radiation dose with a low total cost of ownership.The new 16- and 32-slice versions of the Somatom Perspective bring high-end scanning technologies to a broader clientele, with the option of upgrading to the system’s 64- and 128-slice configurations, which have been available since 2012. The new configurations enable healthcare providers to comply with the NEMA XR-29 Smart Dose Standard, helping ensure a safer imaging experience for patients.New Slice Configurations for Specific ApplicationsThe 16-slice Somatom Perspective is ideal for facilities that need a scanner capable of high-volume routine scanning. In addition to being suitable for routine oncology scans as well as head, neck, lung and abdominal imaging, the Perspective 16 is suitable to help clinicians ensure delivery of pain-relieving analgesics to the correct location during surgery. The 32-slice configuration is designed to provide more detailed imaging for bone fractures, inner ear examinations and vascular applications. Both the 16- and 32-slice configurations come standard with Siemens’ SAFIRE (Sinogram Affirmed Iterative Reconstruction) algorithm, an iterative CT reconstruction method based on raw data. SAFIRE enables the user to either reduce patient radiation dose by as much as 60 percent compared to previous filtered back projection techniques or improve image quality correspondingly.“With these new 16- and 32-slice versions of the Somatom Perspective, Siemens is helping facilities increase their ability to accommodate more patients or to replace outdated technology with a solution that delivers the latest, dose-reducing and workflow-enhancing technologies at an ideal total cost of ownership,” said Murat Gungor, vice president, CT and radiation oncology business management, Siemens Healthcare.Technologies Boost Uptime, Enhance Patient ExperienceExclusive to the Somatom Perspective is its eCockpit, which features technologies that enhance the longevity of the scanner’s most expensive and fragile component – the X-ray tube. eCockpit includes eMode, which automatically selects scan parameters that reduce wear and tear on the X-ray tube; eStart, which provides a smoother start-up time during lulls in the scanning day; and eSleep, which stops the X-ray tube and detector inside the gantry from spinning when the scanner is not in use. The Somatom Perspective also includes automated solutions that help simplify time-consuming, complex procedures, supporting clinical personnel at every stage of the CT examination and allowing them to spend more focusing on patients. Additionally, a standard illumination mood light contributes to a soothing patient environment.For more information: www.usa.siemens.com/healthcare FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | AAPM | July 29, 2019 VIDEO: Trends in Medical Physics at the AAPM 2019 meeting … read morelast_img read more

Mott Children’s Hospital at the University of MichiganJanuary 5, 2016 — In December, Materialise announced a partnership with Tissue Regeneration Systems (TRS) to manufacture 3D-printed tracheal splints for use in clinical trials Materialise will undertake with the University of Michigan in a separate exclusive licensing agreement. The company plans to ultimately offer the newly granted patent in the marketplace.Materialise’s Mimics Innovation Suite was used to design the splint, which is constructed from a bioresorbable technology platform licensed to TRS by the University of Michigan in 2007. After several years refining fabrication methods, TRS received its first commercial product clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2013.Thanks to FDA approval for Expanded Access to an investigational medical device, the splints have already saved the lives of four infants suffering from tracheobronchomalacia (TBM), a life-threatening congenital airway disorder, since 2013.About 1 in 2,200 babies are born with TBM, which causes the trachea to periodically collapse. The tracheal splint, developed to save the lives of these children, is made with a biopolymer called polycaprolactone, a biodegradable material that is gradually absorbed into the infant’s body tissue over time. Glenn Green, M.D., and Scott Hollister, Ph.D.,, of the University of Michigan used Materialise’s Mimics Innovation Suite to model and construct these splints using computed tomography (CT) scans of patient anatomy.“This agreement is a critical step in our goal to make this treatment readily available for other children who suffer from this debilitating condition,” said Green.“We have continued to evolve and automate the design process for the splints, allowing us to achieve in two days what used to take us up to five days to accomplish,” added Hollister, Ph.D., professor of biomedical engineering and mechanical engineering. “I feel incredibly privileged to be building products that surgeons can use to save lives.”The U-M team hopes to next year open a clinical trial for 30 patients with similar conditions at C.S.
