first_imgIn his letter, Boone concluded that the final investment decision for the $8.8 billion project contains fundamental flaws. “We ask you to act in the best interests of BC ratepayers and delay the start of Site C construction until at least Summer 2017.” Boone has requested a written response from the Premier and the government by June 5.Below are copies of the letter sent to the Premier and a letter sent by Robert McCullough. Frustrated over the government’s repeated refusal to commission an independent review of Site C’s cost estimates, the PVLA took it upon themselves to hire leading US energy economist, Robert McCullough to look at the business case of the largest public infrastructure project in British Columbia’s history.From the outset, the government has touted Site C as the option that is best for the ratepayers of BC, and the least costly. The PVLA and McCullough’s report disagree with that assertion. In his letter to the  Premier, accompanying McCullough’s report, PVLA president Ken Boone said, “BC Hydro’s financial analysis is skewed to favour Site C over alternatives.”Boone goes on to say that a 2-year delay in construction will save BC ratepayers $200 million, which is completely at odds with a statement made in January 2015 by BC Hydro Commercial Manager of Site C, Michael Savidant, that a delay will increase the cost of Site C by $175 million.  Yet, according to McCullough’s report, and using BC Hydro’s own analysis, not only will a two-year delay create savings for ratepayers, but a longer delay will save even more money.- Advertisement -In his report, McCullough said that it was a surprising conclusion that a relatively high-cost hydroelectric project was reported to be only two-thirds as expensive as the alternatives.McCullough’s report examined the costs of natural gas, coal gasification, landfill biogas, geothermal, combined heat and power, wind and mass burn incineration, and compared them with the costs of Site C.“Using BC Hydro’s assumptions,” said McCullough in his report, “the difference in cost between the least expensive option and Site C is minimized. Using industry standard assumptions, Site C is more than three times as costly as the least expensive option. In fact, Site C fares poorly when compared to cogeneration, wind, landfill and coal gasification.”Advertisementlast_img read more

MONTEBELLO – Much-needed funding for communication and record systems upgrades arrived at the Montebello Police Department on Wednesday, thanks to Rep. Grace Napolitano. With its current Computer Aided Dispatch and Records Management System scheduled to be discontinued Jan. 1, 2007, the department has been scrambling to find funding for the estimated $1.5 million cost of a new system. On Wednesday, Napolitano presented a $100,000 grant to the department, money that came from the congresswoman’s procurement of $11.5 million for local projects in her 38th Congressional District. The larger sum is part of Congress’ recently approved 2006 Science, State, Justice and Commerce Appropriations Bill. Combined with $250,000 the department received from the same bill last year, police Chief Garry Couso-Vasquez hopes the $100,000 will enable the department to secure a new system and a payment plan for remaining upgrades. “We’ve had our bell and coffee cup out for many years,” Couso-Vasquez said. “With some government help, hopefully, we can get the needed resources to go forward with this by the end of the year.” Steve Taratula, grants and projects administrator for the department, said that upgrading part of the system was not enough. “Our system is more than 20 years old,” Taratula said. “We had a software upgrade in the mid-’90s, but the stuff in the cars is text-based, which takes a lot of keystrokes. “The new system will allow the officers to use a touch screen with icons so they don’t have to pull over and type a whole sentence in. “Getting a whole new system will also increase the inter-operability with other agencies so we’ll be compatible with Homeland Security,” he added. Couso-Vasquez said Montebello is joining both the Whittier and Monterey Park police departments in choosing the same product in the hopes that the manufacturer will give a group rate. According to the department’s technology consultant, Bill Romesburg, the computerized dispatch and records systems allow faster police response times by increasing accuracy and enabling officers to see various aspects of a call. Officers would be able to make reports from the field on laptop computers, saving significant amounts of time. “When a 9-1-1 call comes in, the dispatcher can see where the call is coming from,” Romesburg said. “The new system validates the address now and can do an internal search to see how many times there have been calls made there. It can check on duplicate calls and see if there are any past hazards related to the address. It’s a huge benefit to the officers.” Napolitano said she depends on community leaders to inform her about areas in need of funding. “If people don’t communicate with me as to what they need to do the job better, I’ll never know,” Napolitano said. “I’m trying to sell the government on the idea that the more cities that have the same systems, the better able we are to get criminals going from city to city. That helps in Homeland Security issues.” (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029last_img read more

first_imgGeorge Groves became European super-middleweight champion with a points victory against Christopher Rebrasse in their WBC world title eliminator at Wembley Arena.Groves, who has also held the British and Commonwealth titles, was short of his best in his first outing since being knocked out by Carl Froch in their rematch in May.Frenchman Rebrasse didn’t let his belt go without a battle, absorbing some heavy shots and at times troubling Groves as the Hammersmith man tired in the later rounds.Groves, 26, was nevertheless a clear winner and is now in line for a third world title shot following his two defeats against WBA and IBF champion Froch – the WBC title is currently held by unbeaten American Anthony Dirrell.Groves started at a frenetic pace and rocked Rebrasse in the third round, while the Londoner’s jab was a persistent and effective weapon.As the pace slowed, Rebrasse had more success, including during an explosive eighth round in which the pair traded heavy shots.Although his opponent, who has never been stopped, was durable and still strong in the closing rounds, Groves always had the edge in terms of hand speed and variety of shots.Two of the judges scored the bout 118-110 in his favour, with another making it 117-111.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

first_imgLong thought a tree-killing bane, parasitic mistletoe appears to do much more good than harm to a forest ecology.David Watson, a researcher at Charles Sturt University in Albury, New South Wales, has been studying mistletoe for years, according to Stephanie Pain at New Scientist, who wrote “Marvellous mistletoe: Giving forests the kiss of life.” Here’s what Watson has concluded from his research:“Mistletoes are the key to a rich and healthy forest. They are the engine that drives diversity from the forest floor to the canopy.“Mistletoe gets its water from the host tree, but is able to manufacture its own carbohydrates through photosynthesis. For this reason, mistletoe is called “hemiparasitic.”  Watson found that mistletoe rarely kills a tree.  More interesting, though, are the benefits mistletoe brings to the forest:Always assured of water, evergreen mistletoes are a reliable year-round source of food for many forest dwellers, providing nutrient-packed leaves, sugary nectar and juicy, fat-rich berries. The dense clumps offer hideaways and cool places to roost, while the tangle of sturdy stems offers secret nooks for small birds to nest in and a solid platform for larger ones to build on.Watson proved these benefits by removing all the mistletoe from a patch of eucalyptus forest in Australia.  The reduction in diversity was dramatic, not only among birds and tree-climbing animals, but even in the forest floor.  That’s because the fleshy leaves provide a nutritious food source when they drop to the ground.  “Those leaves are packed with goodies,” Watson remarked (though many are poisonous to humans).  Soils without the mistletoe are impoverished in good bacteria, insects and invertebrates.  Trees without it reduce good spots for nesting and hiding.Mistletoe is not a single species but a category: “What links these plants is not shared ancestry, for mistletoes have evolved at least five times in different groups of plants, but their lifestyle.”  There are some 1300 species.  They live on every continent except Antarctica.  Some ecologists consider mistletoe a “keystone species, an organism that has a disproportionately pervasive influence over its community” (Wikipedia).Stephanie Pain listed animals that use mistletoe, including porcupines and squirrels that hibernate in the clumps.  Birds of all sizes, including hummingbirds and hawks benefit from the nutritious leaves and berries.  Even gorillas and rhinos browse on mistletoe.The seeds of some species are spread by birds (see Mistletoes in Australia).  They can survive the bird’s digestive tract, and then stick to twigs with an adhesive coating around the seed.  Other species, particularly in the genus Arceuthobium, can launch their seeds like rockets from branch to branch.  The fruit pods build up hydrostatic pressure as they mature until the pods rupture, sending the sticky seeds on a ballistic path at 55 mph, landing up to 50 feet away (source:; see also American Journal of Botany).If an athlete get’s athlete’s foot, what does an astronaut get?*  We hope you enjoyed this ecology story for year end 2012, as a reminder that things in nature are not always what they seem, and more wonderful the closer one looks.  Most people only think of mistletoe at the holidays as an excuse for stealing a kiss.  As this entry shows, there’s much more to the story.  Thank you for reading Creation-Evolution Headlines this year.  Resolve to tell your friends!*Missile toe, if you never heard that joke in elementary school.(Visited 44 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Policy makers are being told that the applications we know and love are dangerous and pose gaping security loopholes for cyberterrorism. Is a Big Brother overprotective meltdown? Or are our advances really causing greater risks for all users?The infosec-focused Ponemon Institute polled 217 senior-level IT executives located in various federal organizations. They called out these as the top 5 trends in Internet technologies that – at least from their POVs – put businesses, governments, and users at risk:79% Unstructured data71% Cyber terrorism63% Mobility52% Web 2.044% Virtualization Some of these trends are quite longstanding; however, they still cause a great deal of concern among our friends in infosec. Data breach (40%), cyber crime (40%), cloud computing (39%), outsourcing (34%) and open source applications (18%) also top the study’s list of security vulnerabilities as seen through the eyes of government IT pros.However, Vivek Kundra, a 2.0 champion and federal CIO, said in a recent post, “Our policies lag behind new trends, causing unnecessary restrictions on the use of new technology…‘This technology supports every mission our government performs – from defending our borders to protecting the environment. IT is essential for the government to do its work, and it is essential that we have access to the latest and most innovative technologies.”It’s sad and frightening to see mobile tech, social networks, and cloud computing called out alongside cyber crime and cyberterrorism as perceived threats to data security. But how much validity do U.S. leaders’ fears carry?The Ponemon Institute reports, “IT operations and IT security professionals identified cloud computing, outsourcing of sensitive information to third parties, external threat oforganized cyber criminal syndicates, cyber terrorism, and a mobile workforce… We believe the findings from this study provide government organizations with guidance on which threats are more critical than others to address.”What do you think about the assessment of these high-profile and popular trends being identified as threats by IT execs in government? Is this a case of out-of-touch government bigwigs cracking down on the social web when black hat hackers are truly to blame? Or are so-called social media experts remiss in their duties to ensure that any products they roll out are secure enough for across-the-board use?Or is it a little bit of both?Most importantly, how do we solve the problem of ensuring that government and corporate sensitive information remains secure while users get to enjoy the benefits of Internet-based applications?We welcome your comments below. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more
