New Brunswick should have second nuclear reactor energy minister

first_imgPOINT LEPREAU, N.B. – New Brunswick’s energy minister says he’d like to see another nuclear reactor built in the Maritime province.Rick Doucet said the development of small modular reactors could present a significant economic and export opportunity.“Canada and New Brunswick have an opportunity to become world leaders in the SMR technology and into bringing a clean, new and reliable source of ultra-low carbon power to the forefront of global climate change,” Doucet said Monday.Advanced Reactor Concepts — a U.S.-based company — announced it will commit $5 million to operations and research in New Brunswick.“The long-term vision is to build a commercial demonstration SMR plant at the Point Lepreau nuclear generating station,” Doucet said. “Construction of an SMR would be a major undertaking, which would see thousands of workers hired for construction.”The company wants to build small, 100-megawatt reactors that it describes as inherently safe. A prototype operated for 30 years in the United States but the technology was never developed.“We intend to demonstrate that the inherent safety features of our reactor enable a simple and cost effective design which will be competitive with all other forms of electricity generation,” said Don Wolf, chairman of Advanced Reactor Concepts.Their ARC-100 reactor uses a technology that Wolf says doesn’t require the costly safety measures required by other nuclear reactors.“The fuel is not an oxide of uranium, it’s a metal. The combination of the sodium as a coolant (rather than water) the metal fuel and the proprietary core design of the ARC reactor gives it inherent safety,” Wolf said.Gaetan Thomas, president of Crown utility NB Power, said such reactors can be cost efficient.“When you put all those factors together, it’s an ideal solution for the future,” Thomas said.The New Brunswick government recently announced it will spend $10 million to create a nuclear research cluster.New Brunswick’s 660-megawatt Candu-6 reactor at Point Lepreau is the only nuclear power plant in Atlantic Canada.It underwent a $2.4 billion refurbishment between 2008 and 2012. The refurbishment was plagued by repeated delays and cost overruns.Wolf said his company could start building ARC-100 reactors as early as 2030, and he said New Brunswick would be an ideal place to do it.“I think you have an ideal situation here with respect to the trained workforce, the enthusiasm about nuclear power, and all the ingredients to have this be a world export hub,” he said. “There’s no reason why it shouldn’t be built here.”Robert Blakely, a director with Canada’s Building Trades Unions, called Monday’s announcement significant.He said while it doesn’t mean shovels in the ground in the near future, it provides hope for the years to come.“This provides an opportunity to get young New Brunswickers into great trades, high-skilled, high-paying, rewarding careers,” Blakely said.last_img read more

UNbacked meeting on forced displacement crisis in Central America urges regional responsibilitysharing

“We are very encouraged by the open and frank spirit in which the discussions took place and hope that the various actions announced will have a direct positive impact on the people who are affected by displacement,” said Volker Turk, Assistant High Commissioner for Protection for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), in his closing remarks to the high-level event, which wrapped up yesterday.Co-chaired by UNHCR and the Organization of American States (OAS), the two-day gathering was the first international event to focus on current forced displacement in the region and one of several key events leading up to the UN General Assembly’s summit on addressing large movements of refugees and migrants in September.The number of people fleeing violence in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, a region known as the Northern Triangle of Central America, has surged to levels not seen since armed conflicts wracked the region in the 1980s, according to UNHCR.In 2015, asylum-seekers from this region topped nearly 110,000 – a more than five-fold increase over three years – with most of them seeking safety in Mexico and the United States, as well as Belize, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Panama.A set of actions agreed on at the event included: ensuring access to territory and asylum and enhancing arrangements for the reception of asylum-seekers and refugees; strengthening opportunities for self-reliance and local integration of refugees, including through investments of development funding; and enhancing regional cooperation and partnership through increased responsibility-sharing, including increased engagement by civil society organizations.Among the displaced population from the region, the protection needs of unaccompanied or separated children, women, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex communities, indigenous people and Afro-descendants, as well as individuals with disabilities, are most acute.Opening the event on Wednesday, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Mr. Filippo Grandi, stressed the importance of embracing “regional responsibility-sharing mechanisms, with concrete actions in countries of origin, transit and asylum to resolve compelling protection and solutions needs.” read more

Bucks take down Michigan advance to round of 16

The Ohio State men’s tennis team opened up the 2010 NCAA tournament this past weekend at home, downing both Western Michigan and Michigan to advance to the field of 16.The No. 4-ranked Buckeyes opened play Saturday afternoon against the Mid-American Conference Tournament champion Broncos and made quick work of their opponent, winning 4-0.Despite a 12-day layoff, OSU was able to grind it out early and come out on top in the end, advancing to take on Big Ten rival Michigan in the second round on Sunday.“Whenever you have a block of two weeks or so when you don’t play, it’s rough,” OSU coach Ty Tucker said. “It’s always difficult to see how they are going to be out there but the guys responded well.”The Buckeyes returned to the Stickney Tennis Center on Sunday afternoon in front of a packed house to take on the Wolverines. Coming off Saturday’s win in which Tucker said the Bucks were able to “shake the rust off,” his team came out strong on Sunday, grabbing the doubles point to take an early 1-0 lead.While juniors Matt Allare and Balazs Novak were able to garner the first two singles points with relative ease, the four other singles matches were dog fights.“Michigan always plays us tough,” Tucker said. “Bruce Berque always has his guys ready to play, they love the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry, and it was a battle out there.”After Michigan snagged its first point, freshman Dino Marcan gutted out his three-set match 6-7, 6-1, 6-2 and clinched the OSU victory, 4-1.   “I was kind of excited that I was able to clinch it,” Marcan said. “I always like to rely on my teammates when I am not doing well, but it was pretty exciting to clinch it.”  With the win, the Buckeyes will head to the University of Georgia on Friday for the round of 16 and the chance to take on another Big Ten foe, the Wisconsin Badgers.Although Tucker’s team was just one match away from a national title a year ago, he said his team’s focus goes no further than its next match.“The expectation is to play as good as we can against Wisconsin and see where that takes us,” he said.   Tucker said he is confident in his team’s ability and resiliency.“I feel comfortable that our guys come to play. They battle and compete and do what they have to do to win the matches,” Tucker said. “I haven’t seen a Buckeye yet rollover for even five minutes.” read more

CleanTeQ reports positive feasibility for Sunrise battery minerals project

first_imgPre-production capital cost estimate of $1.33 billion (A$1.77 billion) (excluding $165m estimated contingency) reflects a significant increase in refining capacity, relative to the 2016 Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS), to provide the opportunity to increase production volumes. The estimate also includes conservative assessment of indirect costs through construction. Clean TeQ Sunrise is set to deliver significant economic and social benefits over many decades…including safe and well-paid employment, infrastructure upgrades, royalties, taxes and local community contributions. Robert Friedland and Jiang Zhaobai, Co-Chairmen of Clean TeQ Holdings Ltd and Sam Riggall, Chief Executive Officer, are pleased to announce the results of the Definitive Feasibility Study for the Clean TeQ Sunrise Project.“The Definitive Feasibility Study confirms Clean TeQ Sunrise’s proven status as a globally significant cobalt, nickel and scandium resource which, once developed, will become a major supplier of critical raw materials to the lithium-ion battery market. Lithium-ion batteries represent an important enabler of the clean energy revolution, helping alleviate the profound environmental issues caused by the unconstrained burning of fossil fuels by the global transport sector. Being part of the solution is a core objective for Clean TeQ and a strategic driver to develop Clean TeQ Sunrise.”Study Highlights include:The Definitive Feasibility Study models the first 25 years of production, with sufficient ore reserves to extend beyond 40 years. Strong cash flow supports a post-tax NPV of $1.392 billion (A$1.856 billion) and post-tax Internal Rate of Return (IRR) of 19.1%. The DFS assumes long-term metal prices of: Nickel: $7/lb + $1/lb sulphate premium (current nickel price: $6.73/lb); Cobalt: $30/lb (current cobalt price: $36.63/lb). High relative cobalt production results in extremely low average C1 operating costs of negative $1.46/lb Ni after credits and $4.68/lb Ni before credits. Completion of Definitive Feasibility Study provides the platform to enable the acceleration of product offtake agreements and project financing. Value optimisation work continues to assess significant opportunities to reduce capex in areas of pre-assembly, modularisation, procurement and value-added engineering. Average scandium oxide production capacity of 80 t per year, which can readily be expanded to 160 t per year, with the DFS conservatively capping sales at 10 t per year for the life of mine. The potential exists to revolutionise the scandium market with a massive, low-cost source of supply in a stable Australian jurisdiction. Clean TeQ has existing agreements with companies including Airbus Group and Chinalco, to develop new light-weight aluminum scandium alloys for the aerospace and automotive sectors.center_img Steady-state operations workforce of approximately 300 people to generate strong employment opportunities in the state of New South Wales, Australia. The Project delivery model is to be determined during Q3 2018 with a final investment decision targeted for early 2019 and construction expected to commence shortly thereafter. Average production post ramp-up of:21,780 tpa nickel and 4,640 tpa cobalt (Year 2 – 6)19,620 tpa nickel and 4,420 tpa cobalt (Year 2 – 11)18,520 tpa nickel and 3,450 tpa cobalt (Year 2 – 25) Market demand for battery minerals remains extremely strong. YTD2018 global passenger plug-in EV sales were 418,000 units (up 66% year on year). Electric vehicle lithium ion battery sales in January-April 2018 were 12.3 GWh (up 60% year on year).“The outstanding outcomes generated by the DFS confirm the strong technical and economic viability of the project. Next steps are to progress the project towards FID by the Board in early 2019 with the commencement of construction expected shortly thereafter. To achieve FID within the above timeframe, there are several key workstreams which need to be completed.”Clean TeQ has two proposed delivery models for project execution; the Integrated Alliance model with SNC-Lavalin and McDermott and an EPC (Engineer-Procure-Construct) model using a Chinese contractor. Discussions are ongoing with the parties to ensure both proposals are thoroughly assessed with respect to delivered cost, risk and capability. The preferred model will be selected during Q3 2018 and any material impacts to the outcomes of the DFS will be reported.Clean TeQ has been actively marketing to end users and intermediaries in the battery supply chain over the past 18 months. These discussions have progressed well and, with the DFS now complete, the company expects to sign further binding offtake agreements in coming months.Clean TeQ has commenced some of the early works activities to prepare the Project for formal construction post-FID. These works include connecting the site to power and water, installation of the construction accommodation facility and early site works. Planning and works are well underway, with activity set to increase during the second half of 2018.While a substantial volume of work has been completed as part of the DFS, there is a substantial body of work required to produce the final designs and detailed engineering to enable construction to commence as early as possible post FID. This work is underway and will continue through to the end of 2018.last_img read more

Paludisme enfin un vaccin pour 2012

first_imgPaludisme : enfin un vaccin pour 2012 ?Monde  – Réunis en congrès à Washington, les chercheurs spécialistes en maladies infectieuses viennent d’annoncer l’efficacité du vaccin contre le paludisme, actuellement en phase 3 d’essai clinique.Le paludisme est la maladie infectieuse la plus répandue dans le monde. Elle tue plus de 900.000 personnes chaque année, dont une majorité d’enfants en Afrique subsaharienne. Depuis 10 ans, le laboratoire GlaxoSmithKline a mené des essais de vaccins sur 12.000 enfants dans sept pays : Tanzanie, Burkina Faso, Gabon, Malawi, Ghana, Kenya et Mozambique.À lire aussiErysipèle : contagion, traitement, de quoi s’agit-il ?La phase 3 des essais cliniques permet d’obtenir 50% de réussite dans la protection contre la maladie pendant une période d’un an. Si les tests à venir confirment ces résultats, le laboratoire devrait demander une autorisation de mise sur le marché dès 2010, et des campagnes massives de vaccination pourraient être envisageables à l’horizon 2015.L’organisation Malaria Vaccine Initiative soutient ces essais, avec pour objectif un nouveau vaccin efficace à 80% sur une durée d’au moins quatre ans.

Un ver marin qui couve ses œufs découvert en Antarctique

first_imgUn ver marin qui couve ses œufs découvert en AntarctiqueDes chercheurs espagnols et américains ont découvert dans l’Antarctique une nouvelle espèce de némertien (ver marin) qui couve ses œufs dans un cocon. Une stratégie imposée par les conditions extrêmes régnant dans cette région du monde.La couvaison est un comportement fréquent chez les animaux. Toutefois, l’observer chez un ver marin est assez exceptionnel. C’est pourtant bien ce qui caractérise la nouvelle espèce de némertien découverte par une équipe dirigée par Conxita Avila, du Département de biologie animale de l’Université de Barcelone et occupée à inventorier les richesses biologiques de l’Antarctique dans le cadre d’un projet baptisé Actiquim.Les némertiens sont un groupe d’invertébrés vivant principalement dans les eaux marines. La nouvelle espèce a été baptisée Antarctonemertes riesgoae. La femelle sécrète, à travers la paroi de son corps, un mucus très dense qui se solidifie au contact de l’eau de mer, jusqu’à former une membrane élastique. Une fois ce cocon créé, la femelle y pond ses œufs. En outre, de façon inattendue pour un némertien, la femelle est loin d’être passive.Elle montre même un comportement défensif quand les cocons sont perturbés par quelque chose, explique l’étude publiée dans la revue Polar Biology. À ce jour, seulement deux espèces de némertiens étaient connues pour couver leurs œufs. Faire face aux conditions extrêmes À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Selon l’équipe de recherche, ce comportement exceptionnel est dû aux conditions climatiques extrêmes de l’Antarctique. La stratégie peut avoir pour conséquence une augmentation du succès reproducteur pour de nombreuses espèces antarctiques qui ne peuvent se reproduire pendant l’été polaire. Précisons tout de même que le principal objectif du projet Actiquim est justement d’analyser l’écologie chimique des invertébrés marins qui vivent dans ces eaux froides. Au fur et à mesure des travaux, d’autres découvertes étonnantes pourraient donc être réalisées dans les eaux de l’Antarctique.(crédits photo : Sergi Taboada, UB)Le 7 décembre 2013 à 16:21 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

VW offers best look yet at 2020 Golf Mk8 before fall debut

first_img3:45 5 things you need to know about the 2019 VW Golf GTI Now playing: Watch this: 2020 Mini JCW Clubman first drive: A fast alternative for the crossover-averse Volkswagen Tags Check out the VW ID 3’s clever camouflage Enlarge ImageI’m not entirely sold on that sloping-brow front end just yet, but perhaps I’ll be swayed when I see it camouflage-free. Volkswagen The 2020 Volkswagen Golf in the US will be the final model year of the seventh-generation hatchback, but in Europe, the 2020 model year will bring an entirely new Golf to market. We haven’t heard too much about it yet, despite an impending reveal, but VW has finally seen fit to throw a teaser our way.Volkswagen on Wednesday published a teaser for the eighth-generation Golf, which is slated to debut this fall. The new hatchback was originally scheduled for a Frankfurt Auto Show debut, but VW reportedly pushed back the Golf in order to let the forthcoming ID 3 electric hatchback take the spotlight for itself.Not much appears to have changed between earlier spy shots and the teaser we see here. It’s wrapped in what appears to be a black-and-white version of the camouflage that hides the ID 3, and thankfully, it’s not the best camo out there. The headlights are positioned a little lower on the front end, giving the hood a stronger sort of eyebrow line across the front end. The general side shape is pretty close to the seventh-generation Golf, although the rear end looks to have a little more of a fastback-type slope to it, likely capitalizing on the market’s desire for those kinds of looks on cars and SUVs.Giving the ID 3 space to breathe wasn’t the only reason we heard for the Mk8 Golf’s delayed debut. In April, a report claimed that the new Golf was beset with software-based setbacks, related at least in part to its over-the-air upgrade capability. This reportedly messed with not only the scheduled debut, but also the start of production, which the report claims has been scaled back dramatically for the 2019 calendar year. The most recent report we read claims the Golf debut will now take place in October, which will slot nicely between the Frankfurt and Los Angeles auto shows.While we won’t get the Mk8 Golf for about a year after Europe (Yanks had the same delay in receiving the seventh-gen Golf, too), VW is already winding things down for the 2020 model year in the US, creating one-ish-year gaps for models like the Golf R. We’ll likely receive only a slice of the total Golf variants on offer — the premature deaths of the Alltrack and SportWagen lead us to believe that the report claiming the US will only receive Mk8 GTI and Golf R variants is, in fact, true.

Delhis oddeven rule Hero Electric to give free ebike ride for commuters

first_imgHero Electric, India’s largest manufacturer of electric two-wheelers, will roll out 100 e-bikes to help commuters in Delhi during the trial phase of the odd-even scheme.The e-bikes will be made available at 15 strategic locations in Delhi and will provide free rides to commuters to give them last-mile connectivity.”Each chosen location will have 5-10 Hero e-bikes with a driver during the rush hour between 8 am and noon, and from 4 pm to 8 pm, to help commuters reach last-mile destinations from a public point such as metro stations or a busy bus terminal, for no charge,” said the company in a statement.The company has partnered with Bikemate for people to book the ride with ease. Bikemate is an application available on Android and iOS, which lets commuters put in a request for a free ride in Delhi.”The idea is to help officegoers and general commuters experience the joy and comfort of zero-pollution electric bikes and also to get to know the advantages of switching over to electric mobility,” Business Standard quoted Sohinder Gill, chief executive of Hero Electric, as saying.Delhi has exempted two-wheelers from the odd-even vehicle policy, which is targeted at reducing pollution levels in the national capital.But experts say two-wheelers which run on combustion engines play a spoilsport for the new rule.Out of the total 89 lakh registered vehicles in Delhi, 51 lakh are two-wheelers, and any policy aimed at controlling pollution should include two-wheelers as well, the experts have said.Two-wheelers account for nearly 33% of particulate matter (PM) emissions in the transport sector, next only to trucks, a recent draft IIT-Kanpur report showed.Even though motorcycles or scooters and bikes occupy less space and are fuel efficient, one two-wheeler is estimated to “emit almost as much as a BS-III standard car”.last_img read more

Monday night in front of a national audience, Peterson allowed two touchdowns to Michael Crabtree and recorded only three tackles in the 24-3 loss. Despite the sub-par performance, Whisenhunt reiterated that Peterson won’t back down.“He’s a competitor,” said Whisenhunt. “He wants to be the bell cow for that position. He wants to be one of the best in the league, and he’s working hard at it.”Speaking of working hard at it, Whisenhunt said Peterson knows what it takes on-and-off the field to become one of the best in this league.“He’s got all of that, good leadership ability,” said Whisenhunt. “He’s in here at 6 a.m. in the morning meeting with coach Cioffi, and they’re working at it. He wants to be good, and he’s driven.” Coming into the 2012 season, Peterson was expected by many to improve upon his stellar rookie year, when he recorded 64 tackles and two interceptions in 16 games. The 22-year-old may not be a shut-down corner yet, but he has the physical tools and the mental makeup to get there pretty quick.
