Saskatchewan requests Ottawa to increase cash advances for canola farmers

first_imgREGINA — Saskatchewan is asking Ottawa to increase its cash advances to canola farmers because of China’s decision to block imports of the oilseed from Canada.The province says it is looking to the federal government for help because China’s ban has caused trade uncertainty in the canola industry.Saskatchewan is requesting the amount of money available to canola farmers through a federal advance payment program be increased to $1 million from $400,000.The province also wants the program’s end-of-March deadline to be extended by one month and that no interest be charged on the maximum payment amount until the issue with China is resolved.Saskatchewan’s ministers of agriculture and trade are to meet with their federal counterparts in Saskatoon this afternoon.China’s move to ban $2 billion worth of canola imports is perceived to be part of a growing rift between the two nations since Canada arrested Meng Wanzhou, daughter of the founder of telecom giant Huawei, at the behest of the United States.

Varanasi Not Priyanka but Congs Ajay to take on Modi

first_imgNew Delhi: The Congress on Thursday ended the suspense over the candidature of Varanasi Lok Sabha seat by declaring Ajay Rai, who placed third in the 2014 election, as the party’s nominee for the seat instead of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.Notably, Priyanka Gandhi had expressed her willingness to contest from the seat only on the wishes of party president Rahul Gandhi. The seat is currently represented by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The Congress announced its nominee for the seat on the day PM Modi started a mega roadshow in Varanasi as a prelude to filing his election papers on Friday. The Congress reportedly debated pitting Priyanka Gandhi, often called its ‘Brahmastra’, against PM Modi but caution won out. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’The Millennium Post was the first to report that Priyanka Gandhi would only be fielded from Varanasi if Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati agrees to extend her support as the Samajwadi Party (SP) was ‘ready’ to withdraw the candidature of Shalini Yadav, whose name was declared by the SP on Tuesday. Shalini Yadav, the daughter-in-law of a former Congress lawmaker as the opposition candidate from Varanasi. In 2014, Ajay Rai finished a poor third in Varanasi, with only 75,000 votes. The Aam Aadmi Party’s Arvind Kejriwal came second with around two lakh votes. None of them came anywhere close to the Prime Minister’s 5.8 lakh. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KPriyanka Gandhi had said that till now that she would contest from Varanasi “if the party asks me.” Since, she joined politics in January and was appointed one of the two general secretaries in-charge of the Congress campaign in Uttar Pradesh, there had been a buzz about the party fielding her against PM Modi. Priyanka Gandhi was given charge of eastern UP, which includes Varanasi. Her three-day boat campaign last month also ended in Varanasi, and this was read by many as more proof that the Congress was ready to go for broke. Priyanka Gandhi did nothing to stop the rumours. During an interaction with Congress workers who wanted her to contest from Raebareli, her mother Sonia Gandhi’s constituency, she said, “Why not Varanasi?” While campaigning in UP, Priyanka Gandhi has often spoken about what she calls PM Modi’s neglect of Varanasi as he roamed the world. “I was stunned to hear from people in Varanasi that in five years, the PM didn’t get time to go to a single village, visit even one family in his constituency,” she has said in rally after rally, accusing PM Modi of running a government indifferent to the poor. Taking a dig at Priyanka after the announcement, BJP leader GVL Narasimha Rao claimed that she “chickened out” of the contest after toying with the idea. “Like brother, like sister. Rahul Gandhi runs away to a faraway constituency and sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra chickens out of a contest after toying with the idea. Naamdars have already conceded big defeat to the kaamdar PM Narendra Modi ji,” the BJP leader said in his tweet. Varanasi votes on May 19 in the last phase of the national elections. The results of the seven-phase polls will be announced on May 23.last_img read more

UNICEF chief urges action to stop unfolding crisis for children in the

“The region is vast, the challenge is great and the window is closing,” said Executive Director Anthony Lake. “To prevent a wide-scale emergency in the Sahel, UNICEF and our partners in this effort must begin at once to fill the pipeline with life-sustaining supplies to the region before it is too late.”Mr. Lake stressed that a significant number of children in the Sahel already suffer from malnutrition, making them extremely vulnerable and susceptible to any reduction in the quantity and nutritional quality of the food they consume.He underscored the urgency to act before the ‘lean season’ when food runs out due to inadequate rain or poor harvests, which can start as early as March in some of the countries across the Sahelian belt.“Specially developed ready-to-use therapeutic foods are the best way to treat severe acute malnutrition among children under five so they have a chance to survive and recover,” Mr. Lake said. “The biggest challenge we face now is getting sufficient amounts of these critical foods to children as the need increases in the coming months,” he added.“The children at risk today in the Sahel are not mere statistics by which we may measure the magnitude of a potential humanitarian disaster. They are individual girls and boys, and each has the right to survive, to thrive and to contribute to their societies. We must not fail them.”Earlier this month UNICEF appealed for $65.7 million to respond to the crisis. It is currently distributing emergency stocks in affected countries such as Niger, where an estimated 33,600 children under the age of five are at risk. 22 December 2011The head of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) called today on the global community to take action to prevent one million children in the Sahel region of West and Central Africa from becoming severely malnourished. read more

If registrations through the scrappage scheme are discounted from the 2010 market, the 2011 outturn is on par with last year’s total.Registrations over the first four months of 2011 have fallen 8.5% to 696,082 units. This represents a decline of 64,259 units. During the same four month period in 2010 over 100,000 cars were reportedly registered through the scrappage scheme.The market continues to move in line with SMMT’s forecast – the April market being within 1.5% of the forecast level. SMMT forecasts the full year market to fall by 5% to 1.93 million units, a view unchanged from the January estimate. The market is then expected to recover in 2012, back above two million units. However, there remains uncertainty over buyer confidence and from possible short-term supply constraints caused by the earthquake in Japan.

Tressel Suspended juniors to return for senior seasons

The five juniors suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season pledged to return for their senior seasons, coach Jim Tressel told the media Thursday. Tressel said he required each player to commit to staying a Buckeye for one more year before granting them permission to travel with the team. The NCAA suspended quarterback Terrelle Pryor, running back Dan Herron, receiver DeVier Posey, tackle Mike Adams and defensive end Solomon Thomas last week after learning the players had violated NCAA rules by selling gear, apparel and memorabilia to the owner of a Columbus tattoo parlor in 2009. The players must also repay between $1,000 and $2,500 each. Freshman linebacker Jordan Whiting was suspended one game and ordered to repay $150. NCAA rules prohibit athletes from receiving benefits or discounts based on their status. The suspensions, however, were pushed back until the start of next season after the NCAA decided the rules education offered by the OSU compliance department was not up to NCAA standards at the time the players sold the merchandise. “They are in the family, they are on the trip, they want to be Buckeyes in 2011,” Tressel said. “They are very remorseful for judgments they have made and they are anxious to have a great experience at the Allstate Sugar Bowl as all of us are.” Posey announced his intention to stay for his senior year during a press conference Tuesday in which the five apologized to Buckeye Nation. Should any of the five forgo his senior season, he would escape NCAA punishment. “If indeed they wanted to stay a part of our family and make the trip and have a chance to participate in one of the greatest games of all time, the Sugar Bowl, they would have to make any decisions based upon their future NFL [career] prior to us going to the bowl game,” Tressel said. “We didn’t think it would be fair to the NCAA or fair to the other people involved in the process that if someone were able to participate and have no consequences down the road. “Those decisions were made by our young people and I am excited to say that all the guys that were involved, knowing that they had options, like playing in this game and leaving, in their minds that could have been an option but it wasn’t.” The players sold Big Ten championship rings, jerseys and gold pants charms they received after beating Michigan. Disappointed that his players would relinquish such significant memorabilia, Tressel sent the group to the home of former Buckeye and two-time Heisman Trophy winner Archie Griffin. “They said, ‘Coach, how can we let the former players know that we feel terrible about what we did?’” Tressel said. “And I said, ‘Gosh, I don’t know. Archie Griffin is the head of our alumni association, the CEO, and his office is across the street. Go see if he’ll take a visit.’ He wasn’t in the office that day, but he said, ‘You know what, come out to my house.’ He said, ‘The kids might get a different perspective when they look at my basement and see how important some of those things are to me.’” read more

Dashboard cam captures good Samaritan rescuing trapped driver

first_imgSOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) – Dashboard camera captured a good Samaritan rescuing a woman from her car following a violent car crash, Tuesday.Che Moreno was sitting at a red light on Southwest 26th Street and 147th Avenue when two cars collided in the intersection. His camera captured the entire ordeal.“We saw a car get T-boned right in front of us,” Moreno said.The camera captured what Moreno, a martial arts trainer, didn’t expect to see on his way to his fighting academy.“Miami is not the best for traffic and situations like that, so I have a camera mounted onto my rear view mirror just for any situation like this,” Moreno said. “As soon as you turn the car on, it’ll start recording, and when you turn the car off, it’ll turn off.”The camera shows Moreno exiting his car to check on the driver of the blue car.“I broke the door open and then I asked her if she needed some help and she couldn’t really talk,” Moreno said. “The fact that she had her seat belt on, I think it helped her out from from not getting further hurt.” The impact of the car crushed the passenger side of the car.“I saw the smash and then I saw the car reversing and I just thought the person could use some help,” Moreno said.The driver of the vehicle that was hit was leaving work at the CVS on the corner of the intersection when crash occurred.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Researchers analyze the future of transistorless magnonic logic circuits

first_img(PhysOrg.com) — As one of the newest research areas today, the field of magnonics is attracting researchers for many reasons, not the least being its possible role in the development of transistor-less logic circuits. Information presented at the first conference on magnonics last summer in Dresden has spurred a cluster of papers that focus on the recent progress in the field. In one of these studies, Alexander Khitun, Mingqiang Bao, and Kang L. Wang from the University of California at Los Angeles have shown that magnonic logic circuits could offer some significant advantages – in spite of some disadvantages – that may allow them to not only compete with but also outperform transistor-based CMOS logic circuits.

This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed in whole or part without the express written permission of PhysOrg.com. While the amplitude-encoding approach has benefits including low power consumption due to the low energy of the spin wave signal, the researchers here think that the phase-encoding approach is more promising. This is because the phase-encoding approach enables different frequencies to be used as separate information channels, allowing parallel data processing in the same device. The capability of multi-channel data processing would provide a fundamental advantage over existing switch-based logic circuitry, and could lead to performance rates beyond the limits of today’s technology.“The greatest potential advantage of magnonic logic circuits is the ability to process information in parallel on different frequencies, which is not possible for CMOS-based logic,” Khitun told PhysOrg.com. Khitun, Bao, and Wang have previously fabricated a prototype magnonic device that operates in the GHz frequency range and at room temperature. However, in order for magnonic logic circuits to take advantage of their potential benefits, researchers will have to find solutions to several challenges. For instance, current prototypes will require increased energy efficiency and will need to be scaled down to the submicrometer range in order to compete with CMOS logic circuits. In comparison, there is still plenty of room to scale down the size of transistors, although power dissipation will likely make further scaling inefficient in the CMOS architecture. Another challenge for the magnonic phase-encoding approach in particular is the requirement for a bi-stable phase element to provide the output on two phases. In their analysis, the researchers note that one candidate is a device called the magnetic parametron, which was invented in the early days of magnetic computers more than 50 years ago. Interestingly, the parametron-based magnetic computers originally competed with transistor-based computers, which eventually proved to be the better option. Yet the magnetic parametron may now provide magnonic logic circuits the ability to live up to their potential.Other challenges for magnonic logic circuits include minimizing the inductive crosstalk between input and output ports, demonstrating some components of the circuits that have not yet been realized, and ensuring that the spin wave devices are compatible with conventional electron-based devices to enable efficient data exchange. Although the development of high-performance magnonic logic circuits will face challenges, Khitun, Bao, and Wang conclude that the advantages are significant enough to justify extensive research. Overall, the researchers predict that, even if the magnonic logic circuits don’t fully replace CMOS logic circuits, they may provide complementary components by offering low-power-consuming hardware for certain general and special task data processing. More information: Alexander Khitun, Mingqiang Bao, and Kang L. Wang. “Magnonic logic circuits.” J. Phys. D: Appl. Phys. 43 (2010) 264005 (10pp). doi:10.1088/0022-3727/43/26/264005 Explore furthercenter_img This figure compares CMOS logic and magnonic logic in terms of throughput (the number of operations per area per time) as a function of the minimum feature size, which is the gate length for CMOS and the wavelength for a spin wave circuit. According to the projected estimates, spin logic may provide a throughput advantage of more than three orders of magnitude over CMOS due to the fact that the throughput of the spin circuit is inversely proportional to the wavelength. However, the throughput of demonstrated spin logic prototypes is currently far below current CMOS technology. Image credit: Alexander Khitun, et al. Spintronic transistor is developed The field of magnonics gets its name from spin waves and their associated quasi-particles called magnons, which have attracted scientific interest since the 1950s. Spin waves can generate collective spin excitations in magnetically ordered materials; by controlling the surrounding magnetic field, researchers can also control spin excitations and use them, for example, to carry and process information. Over the past few years, researchers have been investigating how to exploit spin wave phenomena to make logic circuits, which are the basis of data processing in electronic devices. Whereas CMOS logic circuits use electric current to store and transfer data, magnonic logic circuits use spin waves propagating in magnetic waveguides. By avoiding electric currents, magnonic logic circuits have the potential to enable more efficient data transfer and enhanced logic functionality, including parallel data processing.On the other hand, spin waves are known to have properties that present disadvantages for data processing, which include having a group velocity that is more than 100 times slower than the speed of light, and an attenuation (reduction of signal strength) that is more than 1,000,000 times higher than for photons. However, as chip density has increased and the distances between components have become smaller, the slow velocity and high attenuation have become less problematic. Now, fast signal modulation has become more important, which spin waves can provide due to their short wavelength and long coherence length. As the researchers explain in their analysis, a magnonic logic circuit can encode a bit of information in two ways: through either the amplitude or the phase of the spin wave. In the first working spin wave-based logic device demonstrated in 2005, Mikhail Kostylev and coauthors used the amplitude-encoding approach. They split the spin wave into two paths, which would later interfere with each other either constructively or destructively. The interference creates two opposite amplitudes that represent the 0 and 1 logic states. In the second approach, a spin wave propagating through an inverter waveguide undergoes a half-wavelength phase change. The original phase ‘0’ and the inverted phase ‘π’ can then be used to represent the logic states 0 and 1, respectively.

Coal mine auctions Centre gets 176 bids for 23 blocks

first_imgWhile the exact value of the bids could not be ascertained, industry estimates suggest these blocks may fetch tens of thousands of crores of rupees in revenue. The government officials said the response have been as per expectations and most of the major players from private sector are participating in the auction, which was necessitated after cancellation of earlier coal block awards by the Supreme Court. “176 technical bids have been received for 23 coal blocks under Schedule II which were put on auction for private sector. The response has been as per our expectation and most of the major players have participated in it,” Coal Secretary Anil Swarup told reporters here after the technical bids were opened. Swarup, however, did not reveal the names of the players who participated. Also Read – I-T issues 17-point checklist to trace unaccounted DeMO cashSources said the bidders include JSPL and GVK Power among others. A spokesperson for Monnet Ispat confirmed that the company has submitted its technical bid. “Auction process will be web cast to maintain transparency,” Swarup said after the technical bids were opened today in the presence of bidders. The Supreme Court had in September 2014 cancelled allotment of 204 mines since 1993 terming the allotment as “arbitrary and illegal”. Coal Minister Piyush Goyal had earlier said that as per conservatives estimates, eastern states which house most pf these mines stand to gain about Rs 7 lakh crore from auction and royalties over the next 30 years. A maximum number of 16 bids were received for Gare Palma IV/7 block which is in Chhattisgarh and was previously alloted to Sarda Energy & Mineral Ltd. Twelve bids each were received for Tokisud North block in Jharkhand, Bicharpur mine in Madhya Pradesh and Gare Palma IV/4 in Chhattisgarh. Also Read – Lanka launches ambitious tourism programme to woo Indian touristsTokisud North was previously allocated to GVK Power (Govindwal Sahib) while Bicharpur was earlier given to Madhya Pradesh State Mining Corporation. Gare Palma IV/4 was previously allotted to Jayaswal Neco. The tender process for the 23 coal mines under schedule II was started on December 27 last year and “bidders submitted their technical bids on MSTC portal created for the purpose,” the government said. “The electronic bids were decrypted and opened electronically in the presence of bidders. Entire process was displayed on the screen for the bidders. Subsequently, sealed envelopes containing bank guarantee, power of attorney and affidavit were also opened in the presence of bidders,” an official statement said. These bids will be evaluated by a multi-disciplinary technical evaluation committee to shortlist bidders for participation in the electronic auction to be conducted on MSTC portal from February 14, it added. The blocks put on offer include Ardhagram, Belgaon, Bicharpur, Chotia, Gare-Palma-IV/1, Gare-Palma-IV/4, Gare-Palma-IV/5, Gare-Palma-IV/7,Gotitoria (East) & (West), Kathautia, Mandla North, Marki Mangli-I, Marki Mangli-III, Parbatpur Central, Sial Ghoghri, Amelia (North), Gare-Palma-IV/2 & IV/3, Sarisatolli, Talabira-I, Tokisud North and Trans Damodar.last_img read more

George Clooneys fiancee named to UN Gaza inquiry team

first_imgGENEVA – Hollywood star George Clooney’s fiancée Amal Alamuddin is to join fellow human rights experts probing Israel’s Gaza offensive, the United Nations said Monday.The Lebanese-born British lawyer was one of three top experts appointed to a commission of inquiry by the U.N. Human Rights Council, which ordered the investigation last month.Alamuddin’s family, who are from Lebanon’s Druze community, fled to Britain during the country’s 1975-1990 civil war.The 36-year-old, who is fluent in Arabic, French and English, studied at a French school in London and holds degrees from Oxford and New York University.She is reportedly due to wed 53-year-old Clooney — who is known both for his acting and his peace campaigning — in Italy in September.News that she had stolen the heart of one of Hollywood’s most celebrated bachelors caused an international media frenzy back in April.Alamuddin is no stranger to international investigations and conflicts.She worked with the international tribunal examining the assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq Hariri and assisted ex-U.N. head Kofi Annan in efforts to make peace in Syria.Among her legal clients have been Ukraine’s former prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko and the controversial founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange.The other members of the inquiry team are Doudou Diene of Senegal, who has previously served as the U.N.’s watchdog on racism and on post-conflict Ivory Coast, and Canadian international lawyer William Schabas.In the face of fierce opposition from Israel and the United States, the 47-member U.N. Human Rights Council voted on July 23 to create the commission of inquiry.The decision came after a marathon seven-hour emergency session of the top U.N. human rights body, where the Israelis and the Palestinians traded accusations over war crimes.The probe team has been tasked with reporting back to the council by March.
