Sri Lanka keen to introduce an Aadhaarlike initiative

Sri Lanka will explore launching an application similar to the Unified Mobile Application for New age Governance (UMANG) in India, and it is in talks with New Delhi at the highest levels, said Minister of Telecommunication and Digital Infrastructure Harin Fernando. “We can save $2 million a day if we digitise all our operations,” Fernando told Colombo-based foreign correspondents on Wednesday, The Hindu reported.Sri Lanka is also keen on adopting a mass digital initiative like the Aadhaar in India, he said. Union Minister for Electronics and Information Technology Ravi Shankar Prasad will undertake a two-day visit to the island next month for discussions on bilateral cooperation and possible Indian investment in the sector, he said. “Indians see a lot of potential in Sri Lanka, especially in the IT sector. The environment here is very conducive for investment,” Fernando said, adding that the government would soon form a new digital secretariat to streamline initiatives pertaining to information and technology. Fernando said the Ministry aims to give Sri Lankans a unique identification number each, linked to their biometrics, to enable easier access to government schemes and services. He said such initiatives would not only help citizens access schemes and funds meant for them, but also help keep a check on corruption. The Ministry, he said, would liberalise the sector and opt for a highly privatised model.Recognising the importance of connectivity in digitisation, the government is focussing on creating at least 30,000 public wi-fi spots, including in 10,000 schools to enable students to use technology, he said. “Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe is keen that school students be given tablets, and he has also discussed the initiative with the Indian Prime Minister,” said Fernando. In a separate initiative, the government has also been pushing for digitising the national identity cards of Sri Lankans with biometrics, a move that has made privacy advocates in the country concerned. read more

AmmLeach CuCo demonstration pilot plant in collaboration with MC Process

first_imgThe AmmLeach® copper/cobalt plant is to be used for testing bulk representative samples from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and elsewhere. It will be the first AmmLeach plant in the world to showcase process in two circuits through to copper and cobalt cathode metal, compared with the majority of DRC cobalt, which is currently produced as an intermediate product. The ability for third parties to see the Ammleach process working will be invaluable for commercialisation. MC Process is a highly regarded partner of choice for AmmLeach plant design and engineering in Africa. Alexander Mining has, in partnership with MC Process, completed construction of the copper/cobalt demonstration pilot plant in Johannesburg, and has commenced commissioning the plant using bulk ore samples from the DRC. As part of Alexander’s initiatives in the DRC, it has collected a significant range of copper and cobalt mineralisation samples from the DRC for initial laboratory amenability testing. The testwork results have been highly encouraging and jointly the companies have now established a pilot plant at MC Process’s premises. Initially, the plant will be used for testing larger bulk representative samples which have been delivered from the DRC, but will be capable of treating other base metal deposit types.The AmmLeach cobalt/copper process has particular relevance to the DRC which accounts for around 53% of world mine production in 2011 and 45% of world reserves. Moreover, the majority of cobalt currently produced in the DRC is as an intermediate product. The AmmLeach cobalt/copper process is simpler and requires fewer unit processes to produce cobalt and copper metal cathode, resulting in significantly reduced capital and operating costs compared to the conventional acid/SO2 process.Given the inherent high costs associated with operating within the DRC, using conventional technology, AmmLeach has the potential to enable the processing of a significantly greater number of deposits that have to date been considered marginal or uneconomic to develop.The AmmLeach process may economically treat high carbonate and acid consuming orebodies that are prevalent in the DRC and which may not be economically treated using acid leaching. It is also ideally suited to heap leaching of ‘lower’ grade orebodies.The results from the pilot plant will be invaluable for design and scale up to a full size commercial plant.MC Process is Alexander’s partner of choice for AmmLeach plant design and engineering in Africa and it is dedicated to the design and manufacture of minerals processing equipment, especially SX-EW plants. Moreover, it has considerable experience with designing and establishing SX-EW plants in the DRC and other countries in Africa.Martin Rosser, Chief Executive Officer, said: “This pilot plant will be the first in Africa to showcase Alexander’s innovative AmmLeach technology producing both copper and cobalt metal from two circuits in the one plant. It will be integral to our business development plans for the DRC Copperbelt and also for testing material from copper and cobalt projects in other parts of Africa and the world. The ability for third parties to see the AmmLeach® process working will be invaluable for its commercialisation. Moreover, we are delighted with the highly beneficial relationship already developed with MC Process and we look forward to our continued successful close collaboration.”last_img read more

Weather warning lifted as the worst of Storm Christine passes

first_imgAFTER THE WORST storms Ireland has experienced so far this winter, Met Eireann has lifted all national weather warnings.Showers and gale force winds lingering after stormy conditions last night are to pass by this afternoon, it has been forecast.Isolated showers will persist for the rest of the day.A yellow weather warning was in place along south and south west coasts last night but was lifted, although the same level of Marine Weather Warning persist this morning.The Government Task Force on Emergency Planning will reportedly meet today to discuss the clean-up operation after storms that left thousands without electricity and caused damage to coastal areas.Fianna Fáil last week criticised the government’s response to the weather, noting that the UK’s equivalent group, COBRA, met to discuss similar weather events.“Emergency service workers are doing a great job in very difficult circumstances but the Government’s response has been non-existent,” Spokesperson on Environment Barry Cowen said.“In previous years the Task Force on Emergency Planning met regularly to respond to snow and freezing weather conditions.”“However this year, despite Defence Minister Alan Shatter and Environment Minister Phil Hogan launching a ‘Be Winter-Ready’ campaign the government doesn’t seem to have taken any notice of warnings issued by Met Éireann.”Speaking yesterday, Public Expenditure Minister Brian Hayes said he believes it is ‘inevitable’ that more flood relief funding will be released for areas that need it.Read: Road Safety Authority urges caution while driving in stormy weather >Read: Coast Guard warns people to get away from the sea as man injured at Howth pier >More: We thought that earlier pothole was big but then we saw this one… >last_img read more

Committal hearing for Theophanous

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The Melbourne Magistrate’s Court set July 6 as the date for the commital hearing where a rape charge against Victorian MP Theo Theophanous will be heard.Seven days have been set aside by the court for the commital hearing.Theo Theophanous is charged with the alleged rape of a woman in his parliamentary office more than ten years ago. The alleged incident happened on September 1988 after Mr Theophanous and his female accuser had a drink in the city. Mr Theophanous, who says he is innocent, resigned from his Ministerial portfolio as soon as he was charged with one count of rape on Christmas Eve of last year.  The commital hearing will see the prosecution present their evidence before the court.  The alleged victim, who is in her 40s and lives in Greece, will also give evidence.  The evidence presented at the commital hearing will allow the magistrate to decide whether the case will go in front of a jury. The embattled Greek Australian politician, who has not resigned from his parliamentary seat expressed his belief that he will be exonerated outside the court house. “I’m confident the truth will come out in this case,” Mr Theophanous said to waiting reporters.last_img read more

Un ancêtre des crocodiles mis au jour au Maroc

first_imgUn ancêtre des crocodiles mis au jour au MarocL’ancêtre des crocodiles d’Afrique a été retrouvé au Maroc. Il s’agit d’un dinosaure reptile de près de 10 mètres, d’après des chercheurs américains.Le crâne fossilisé d’un reptile préhistorique datant de 95 millions d’années a été retrouvé au Maroc. Il appartient à l’ancêtre des crocodiles africains actuels, un animal baptisé “Shieldcroc” (crocodile blindé). Ce monstre de près de 10 mètres de long possédait une épaisse couche de peau sur le dessus de sa tête. “Cette découverte d’Aegisuchus witmeri ou Shieldcroc, avec d’autres faites auparavant, montre que les ancêtres des crocodiles d’aujourd’hui étaient beaucoup plus diversifiés que ne le pensaient les scientifiques”, souligne le professeur Casey Holliday, de l’Université du Missouri cité par l’AFP.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Ce chercheur et ses collègues ont pu estimer la taille du spécimen et celle de son cerveau en analysant les marques laissées sur l’intérieur de la boîte crânienne. D’après ces mesures, ce crocodile avait une tête longue de 1,52 mètres, pour une taille totale de 9,14 mètres. De plus, l’analyse des empreintes laissées sur le crâne par les vaisseaux sanguins a permis aux chercheurs de déterminer que le Shieldcroc était doté d’une sorte de bouclier sur le dessus de la tête, du jamais vu chez ces animaux.Casey Holliday estime que cette carapace pouvait avoir plusieurs fonctions : attirer les femelles, impressionner les ennemis et peut-être même réguler la température crânienne. Ce crocodile préhistorique attendait certainement dans l’eau que des poissons passent à sa portée mais il est peu probable qu’il ait combattu d’autres dinosaures étant donné ses fines mâchoires. Grâce à ces nouvelles données, il sera plus facile de trouver de meilleurs moyens de protéger l’environnement de ces animaux et d’empêcher leur extinction, expliquent les auteurs de cette communication parue dans la revue scientifique américaine PLoS ONE.Le 1 février 2012 à 15:13 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Is Pakistan finally isolated on Kashmir issue after ModiTrump G7 meeting

first_imgPakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan.ReutersIndian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s meeting with US President Donald Trump on Monday on the sidelines of the G-7 summit in France may have cemented Pakistan’s isolation over the Kashmir issue despite its incessant efforts.The US President was told by PM Modi that India does not welcome a third party mediation on Kashmir. While Pakistan has sought support from international bodies on solving the widely disputed Kashmir issue – following the abrogation of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 of the constitution – many countries, including the US, have stated that the issue is bilateral.The international community has echoed India’s stance of the Kashmir issue being bilateral, under the Simla Agreement and Lahore Declaration. Even the foreign ministry’s stance that the bifurcation of the state into two union territories – J&K and Ladakh – is an internal matter, has been accepted by various countries and the United Nations.With Trump backtracking from his offer to mediate the Kashmir issue, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has turned belligerent.In a special address to the nation, timed as the Modi-Trump talks were slated, and perhaps sensing the way the talks in Biarritz, France, would go, Imran Khan said that Islamabad’s Kashmir policy was at a “decisive” point and slammed India for playing what he called “its last card” and vowed to “take the next step”. Prime Minister Narendra Modi with US President Donald Trump at the G-7 summit in Biarritz, France.TwitterKhan said he will raise the Kashmir issue at every international forum, including at the UN General Assembly.He assured the people of Pakistan that his government will stand by the Kashmiris till India lifts the restrictions in the Valley.The Pakistan Prime Minister said that while Islamic nations are silent on Kashmir, they would have to speak up at some time.For Pakistan, the Muslim world’s backing of India and the UAE and Bahrain – two important members of the Gulf Cooperation Council – welcoming PM Modi with open arms this week, has come as a reminder that India, with its stable economy and forward-looking policies, is a favoured nation.The UAE’s conferment of the Order of Zayed, the Gulf nation’s highest civilian honour, on PM Modi has added to the sense of bewilderment in Islamabad, that Islam cannot be considered the sole binding force anymore and that countries are looking beyond the confines of religion to the open, inclusive, progressive world order.”I read in newspapers that people are disappointed that Muslim countries are not siding with Kashmir. I want to tell you not to be disappointed; if some countries are not raising this issue because of their economic interests, they will eventually take it up. They will have to, with time,” Imran said.In an effort to claim some modicum of victory, after going on a diplomatic overdrive to raise the Kashmir issue with almost every major world leader, Imran said that Pakistan had succeeded in internationalising the Kashmir issue.”We have succeeded in internationalizing the issue of Kashmir, we talked to world leaders and embassies. The UN for the first time since 1965, convened a meeting on Kashmir issue. Even international media has picked it up,” he said.However, at the UN Security Council held a recent closed-door meeting. Pakistan’s close ally China was the sole country that spoke against India at the Permanent five meet.Even Imran Khan’s regular tweets on Kashmir and his labelling of Modi as a “Fascist, racist, Hindu supremacist” leader have failed to get him the international traction he has wanted.While Imran says he will raise the Kashmir issue at the UN General Assembly summit in September, Prime Minister Modi has already met UN Secretary Antonio Guterres on Sunday, on the sidelines of the G7 summit and held “fruitful discussions” with him. A photo of a smiling Guterres and Modi shaking hands after the meeting was tweeted by the PMO on Sunday night.PM @narendramodi met @UN Secretary General Mr. @antonioguterres on the sidelines of the @G7 Summit. The two leaders had fruitful discussions on a wide range of subjects. pic.twitter.com/JuGsftQKRT— PMO India (@PMOIndia) August 25, 2019The successful meeting between Modi and the UN chief came after Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi called up Guterres to apprise him about the “evolving and delicate situation” in J&K. Qureshi said it was the responsibility of the international community to play a role in addressing the Kashmir situation.Significantly, when PM Modi was asked about Kashmir at the media briefing in Biarritz, France, alongside Trump, he said: “India and Pakistan have several bilateral issues. And after the election of Prime Minister Imran Khan, I told him that both our countries suffer from the problems of poverty, illiteracy, backwardness and both should work together for the betterment of our people. This message I gave to the Pakistan Prime Minister, and I have conveyed this to President Trump as well, as we keep discussing our bilateral issues.”(With inputs from agency)last_img read more

Homelessness Down 5 In Houston

first_img X The dip comes after the homeless population grew in 2018 following Harvey, which was the first time in seven years that Houston saw an increase in their homeless population. The coalition’s CEO Mike Nichols told Houston Matters, though Harvey is still a factor in some homelessness, there are systematic problems at play. “The child welfare systems, the educational systems, racism, the criminal justice system, all of those systems leave an open pipeline for people who are homeless. The biggest one, of course, is our mental health system that needs so much support,” said Nichols. “Texas is 47th in the nation in spending in mental health, and although we have great people in Harris County who work on these programs, we need more dollars on those programs,” he said.Since 2011, homelessness has decreased 54% in Harris, Fort Bend and Montgomery counties. Nichols attributes that decrease to supportive housing and support from organizations that help the homeless population.For its size, Houston homeless count is relatively small compared to other major cities like New York City, which has some 63,000 homeless people.  To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: 00:00 /05:55 Brien Straw | Houston Public MediaHomeless people moved across the street from the Highway 59 bridge downtown, while workers cleaned the homeless encampment, on November 16th, 2017.Homelessness in Houston decreased 5% compared to last year, according to the 2019 homeless count by the Coalition for the Homeless.

Australia ag robotics startup Agerris raises US4

first_img Australia ag robotics startup Agerris raises US$4. … A Chinese investment company has bought two of the biggest watermelon farms in Australia’s Northern Territory for AUD$27.5 million (US$20 million), in what is reported to be one of the most significant horticultural deals in the state’s history.ABC News reported the Hong Kong-based CK Hutchinson Holdings – which is owned by the autonomous territory’s richest man, Li Ka-shing – bought Stuart and Kane Younghusband’s melon farms near Mataranka, which cover a combined area of about 1,900 hectares.The new owners have signed a 10-year lease with the New South Wales-based Rombola Family Farms, which was this year found to have sold rockmelons (cantaloupes) contaminated with listeria, which led to a miscarriage and the deaths of seven people.ABC said it understands the Foreign Investment Review Board gave its approval for the sale to go ahead, which settled shortly before Treasurer Josh Frydenberg blocked one of CK Holding’s subsidiaries, CK Investment, from buying the majority of Australia’s gas transmission pipeline.The two Mataranka farms, which were run as separate businesses, produced about 25,000 metric tons (MT) of watermelons every year, which is more than half of the Northern Territory’s 46,000MT annual melon production.Agricultural consultant Ian Baker reportedly said the sale of the two properties was one of the biggest horticultural deals he had seen in northern Australia.”In the [Northern Territory] horticultural industry, farms have been selling between $5 [million] and $10 million, so this is a big sale,” Baker was quoted as saying.
