FUELSAVE Applies to Join the CO2 Challenge

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: FUELSAVE Germany-based manufacturer of fuel saving additive, FUELSAVE, has applied to become a partner of the CO2 Challenge, the initiative set up by US conglomerate Cargill, entrepreneurial group Rainmaking and classification society DNV GL. The CO2 Challenge aims to partner with start-ups and technology companies with systems capable of reducing a vessel’s CO2 emissions in line with international climate strategies and targets. Since the initiative was launched in June 2018, it has received some 70 applicants from 20 different countries.“As shipping looks at solutions capable of cutting carbon emissions in half by 2050, the CO2 Challenge is the optimum platform from which to launch new technology. The initiative not only helps the industry discover new solutions capable of reducing shipping’s impact on the global environment, but it can provide start-ups with the help they need to get their innovations to market and scale up production,” Marc Sima, FUELSAVE co-founder and President, said.While the FUELSAVE application has yet to be assessed, the partners have set strict entry criteria to ensure that only companies with viable technologies capable of reducing a ship’s carbon footprint by 10% can apply.Following field and laboratory tests, the company officially launched its fuel saving additive FS Marine+ at the beginning of the year.“Tests confirmed the technology’s ability to reduce fuel consumption, and consequently carbon emissions, from any marine diesel engine by 10% (net). The system also reduces NOx emissions between 30 – 80% and FSN/ PM / BC by 30- 40% and cleans up the combustion process for visibly less soot and reduced engine wear & tear,” Heino Eckerich, FUELSAVE Technical Director, said.last_img read more

DR Congo UN mission says recruitment of child soldiers is surging

The mission, known as MONUC, has identified the Congrès National pour la Défense du Peuple (CNDP), the group led by the renegade General Laurent Nkunda, and the Front Démocratique de Libération du Rwanda (FDLR) as the two main groups responsible for the forced recruitment of children into armed conflict.The groups deliberately canvass sites such as schools, camps for internally displaced persons (IDPs) and other venues to recruit children, leading to the closure of several schools and the noticeable absence of young children among many communities in the volatile province. Families which try to resist the recruitment often face retaliation.Many of the estimated 8,500 former child soldiers who have been rescued by the UN and other humanitarian organizations since 2004 have been re-recruited in the last few months or used as sex slaves, according to the mission.MONUC pledged in a press statement released today in Kinshasa to redouble its efforts to protect children and prevent their forced recruitment into the armed groups, and it issued a call to those groups to immediately end the practice.The warning comes amid mounting UN concern about the overall humanitarian situation inside North Kivu, where tens of thousands of people are on the move again after some of the worst fighting since the DRC civil war formally ended in 2003.An estimated 800,000 Congolese are now internally displaced within North Kivu, including 170,000 who have been forced to flee in only the past four months since fighting escalated between Government forces (known as FARDC), troops loyal to Gen. Nkunda and rebel groups such as the FDLR.The security situation is so difficult that UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) teams and other relief workers are unable to reach many areas of North Kivu, which borders Rwanda and Uganda. More than 4,500 MONUC troops have been deployed to help ensure the defence of Goma, the capital, and the key town of Saké.In a related development, UNHCR António Guterres was today in the national capital, Kinshasa, to meet with senior Government officials at the start of a five-day visit to assess the deteriorating situation in North Kivu and nearby areas. 14 December 2007Hundreds of under-age boys and girls are being forcibly recruited by rival armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and sent to the front lines of the escalating conflict in North Kivu province in the far east of the country, the UN mission reported today. read more

Quebec Court of Appeal sides with SNCLavalin against securities regulator

MONTREAL — The Quebec Court of Appeal has rebuffed the provincial securities regulator, which feared there was a risk of “collusion” if SNC-Lavalin auditors were given details about its investigation into the scandal that has engulfed the engineering giant.In a ruling issued Wednesday, Quebec’s highest court supported the review office of l’Autorite des marches financiers, which allowed an SNC-Lavalin executive under investigation to provide details to the company’s audit committee and external auditors Deloitte & Touche.The Bureau de decision et de revision en valeurs mobilieres authorized the committee and Deloitte to “review” all proposals for directing responses to the AMF’s requests for information and documents.Some former employees of the Montreal-based firm have been accused of ethical breaches, including US$56-million of payments to unknown agents and $160 million in alleged bribes to the family of deposed Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi.In November, former company CEO Pierre Duhaime was arrested and charged with fraud involving about US$22-million allegedly involving a super hospital in Montreal.SNC-Lavalin (TSX:SNC) had argued that the accounting firm would likely not approve 2012 financial statements if it wasn’t informed about the nature of the AMF investigation.Such a situation could create “confusion” in the markets, affect the company’s share price and even lead to SNC suffering “dramatic damage,” the company claimed.The regulator had raised the risk of “collusion” by members of senior management of SNC-Lavalin, its directors and external auditors to undermine the investigation.The regulatory body was ready to allow SNC to report the state of the investigation to its board, audit committee and Deloitte, but without providing details.In his 19-page ruling, Justice Pierre Dalphond noted that the AMF provided no conclusive evidence of a risk of collusion. According to him, the bureau made a reasoned decision.The Canadian Press read more

Chance for peace in South Sudan finally within reach declares UN Peacekeeping

UN Photo/Eskinder DebebeMr. Jean-Pierre Lacroix, Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations briefs the Security Council meeting on Reports of the Secretary-General on the Sudan and South Sudan. 18 December 2018.Looking ahead to the next steps in the process, Mr. Lacroix highlighted two “critical benchmarks.” First, an agreement on the security sector, necessary for confidence-building and the return of the opposition to the capital, Juba. Second, a new chair of the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission (JMEC), which is responsible for overseeing the implementation of the peace agreement, must be “urgently appointed” to help steer negotiations.On the subject of the future role of UNMISS, the Under-Secretary-General underscored the fact that the humanitarian situation in South Sudan remains “dire,” and that any additional tasks that UNMISS may be asked to perform to support the peace process, should not be at the operational or political cost of protecting civilians, a task which, he said, is essential in the current environment.“The chance for peace in South Sudan has been created,” said Mr. Lacroix, in conclusion: “more progress has been made in the past four months than in the previous four years.” He commended opposition parties for their efforts towards a lasting peace, but warned that the process was not yet irreversible, and will require “positive engagement and compromise from the parties and continued reinforcement if it is to deliver genuine hope and relief to the suffering South Sudanese populations.” Mr. Lacroix reported that military commanders from both parties have opened lines of communications, and that confidence-building measures have borne fruit. Roads have reopened, civilians can move more freely around the country, and some internally-displaced people, or IDPs, have been able to move back to their areas of origin.However, violent attacks continue, he said. He gave the example of sporadic clashes in the Greater Upper Nile region in early December, which resulted in 21 casualties, and expressed serious concern about attacks against civilians, including more rape cases: “Inter-communal violence as well as criminality continue to affect the civilian population in general and women and children in particular, the latter being the most vulnerable amongst civilians.”Mr. Lacroix added that South Sudan will not find a “respectable place among the community of nations”, until those responsible for brutalizing civilians are held accountable.Referring to the fate of two staff members of the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS), whose whereabouts are unknown since they were arrested in 2014, Mr. Lacroix urged all parties, particularly the Government, to ensure a safe environment for humanitarian workers who risk their lives to help South Sudan’s most vulnerable. read more

With the US Out Which World Cup Team Will Americans Root For

Following the United States’ brutal 2-1 extra-time loss to Belgium on Tuesday — despite an amazing performance by goalkeeper Tim Howard — fans in the U.S. are without a rooting interest in the World Cup.Actually, only some are.Casual soccer fans who supported the U.S. men’s national team may tune out now that it’s out, but many Americans will continue to watch. Which team will they cheer for? Probably one of two favorites: Brazil and Germany.FiveThirtyEight conducted a SurveyMonkey Audience poll of nearly 1,100 U.S. residents and asked them which country they were rooting for. The poll was conducted June 23 and 24, toward the end of the group stage. After recording the respondents’ first-choice country, the survey asked which country they would root for if their top choice were eliminated. This gave us a good proxy for U.S. fans’ backup teams.Nearly three out of four respondents picked the U.S. as their top team. Here are the percentages of U.S. fans who chose each nation as a backup (excluding countries with less than 1 percent support):No one country had a dominant share of U.S. fans’ support. England came out on top with 16 percent, but the Three Lions flamed out of the Cup early on. England was followed by Brazil, Germany, Italy and Mexico. Of those countries, only Brazil and Germany remain in the tournament.Not every survey respondent chose a backup country. Of those who chose the U.S. as their first choice, about 5 percent then picked either the U.S. (again) or refused to pick any country (labeled as “none”).What about those 26 percent of respondents who did not select the U.S. as their first-choice? The most-backed countries after the U.S. were Brazil (17 percent), Germany (11 percent), England (10 percent) and Mexico (7 percent).But this method of figuring out whom disappointed U.S. fans will now support is highly imperfect. The poll, conducted online, is likely to under-weight fans without reliable Internet access, as well as fans who don’t speak English. That second flaw is especially problematic, because it probably means many fans with origins in Central and South America are excluded.So, is England really the second-most-supported team among soccer fans living in the U.S.? I’m skeptical. I suspect Mexico is a better bet, with nearly 12 million individuals born in Mexico living in the U.S. as of 2011, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s International Migration Database.To augment our admittedly incomplete survey, we reached out to Google to find data on the top countries searched for in the U.S. Specifically, the searches tallied are for country names combined with the phrase “World Cup.” Obviously, merely searching for a country on Google isn’t the same as rooting for that country. But it’s an approximation of interest.The Google Trends team nicely summarized the most-searched-for countries on a couple of days prior to the World Cup (the tournament began June 12), as well as during the first two weeks of the tournament.Top Countries Searched on GoogleBrazil was the top country queried, although this is probably confounded by its host-country status. Those using Google to search for “Brazil World Cup” could either be interested in the tournament as a whole or in the Brazilian national team. It’s not clear.Mexico and England were the next most-sought-after countries. Mexico does better according to Google than it did in the poll, lending some credence to the idea that the English-only survey underestimates support for El Tri. But even the Google data may underestimate support for Latin American teams. The Google queries here are only for searches in English.Spain and Italy were more searched for in the first couple of weeks of the tournament, and that probably has a lot to do with them being eliminated earlier than expected. In addition to Brazil and Germany, the other highly searched country that remains in the tournament is Colombia.So, with the U.S. men out, expect a sizable number of soccer fans to be supporting Brazil and Germany through the rest of the tournament. read more

Ryanair walks away from 200 Boeing aircraft deal

While descending to Haneda Airport, the airport air traffic control gave instructions for landing with VHF omni directional radio range (VOR) approach on runway 16 left. Upon arrival to the specified location, the pilot had visual contact of runway 16 left and continued approach by using visual for landing according to standard procedures. On the final part of landing approach, the pilot did not have a clear view of the runway and therefore proceeded to operate based on maximum flight safety standards by making a go around according to standard operating procedure.The air traffic controller at Haneda Airport then changed the landing runway for the aircraft to land at runway 22, which was uneventful.The pilot made decisions based on the Aerodrome’s geographical landscape and planned for landing based on maximum flight safety standards. The Company will provide full cooperation with all authorities that will conduct an investigation on this occurrence.Source = Thai Airways International Public Company Limited (THAI)last_img read more
