Indigenous workers at Voiseys Bay anxious about Vale review of nickel operations

October 8, 2019 0 Comments

MONTREAL — Global mining giant Vale’s decision to review its global operations in light of depressed nickel prices is causing anxiety among Indigenous workers at its Voisey’s Bay mine in Labrador.As part of its 60-day audit, the Brazilian miner (NYSE:VALE) has put on hold a decision about an underground expansion project at the Atlantic mine that would create more than 400 jobs and extend its life for 15 years.“These are some of the higher paying jobs you find in our communities,” said Darryl Shiwak, Lands and Natural Resources Minister for the Inuit people of Nunatsiavut.“So with the high unemployment rate and the amount of seasonal work, these jobs are extremely important.”More than half of the workforce in the remote area accessible by plane is Inuit or Innu, while more than 80 per cent of contracts are with Indigenous-owned and operated businesses.Pending the outcome of its review, Vale’s vice-president of corporate affairs and communications, Cory McPhee, said the miner will be in a better position to know what the path forward for the underground project looks like.But detailed engineering and procurement related to the mine’s expansion which began last year is ongoing. Open pit operations in Voisey’s Bay and Long Harbour are continuing as normal, without layoffs, McPhee said.The union representing workers at the site said there’s still time for Vale to approve the underground expansion before the life of the open pit mine expires early in the next decade.“We do have some time although not very much. The window is very small,” said Darren Cove, president of United Steelworkers Local 9508.Cove said there are no current worries about layoffs even though a Vale mine in Sudbury, Ont., closed in May due in part to low ore availability, while a Manitoba facility will shutter Oct. 1.Excess nickel inventory that has caused prices to plummet is prompting global producers to be conservative about spending but the long-term outlook is bright because of the metal’s use in electric car batteries and stainless steel, say mining analysts.Theophile Yameogo of Ernst & Young said he expects demand will pick up strongly after 2020 if electric vehicles sales accelerate and account for seven per cent of cars sold.“The future is definitely very positive,” he said from Toronto.The market has faced a decade of chronic surplus production spurred by investment in new mines after prices peaked at more than US$20 per pound in 2027.They have hovered around US$4 of late and are expected to gradually increase to reach US$6 to US$7 by the end of the decade and rise by 50 cents to US$1 per year over the next five years, said Scotiabank commodity economist Rory Johnston.He said companies are just being cautious.“I don’t see it so much as an exit from current production capacity, just a slow down on investment in new capacity until the market gets a better sense of where nickel prices are going to be going in the longer term.”Canada is the world’s third biggest nickel player, producing about 10 per cent of global supply. read more

Future looks bright

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Behind the main stage of this year’s Lonsdale Street Festival stands the beginnings of the building that will become the next chapter in the future of the Greek community in Melbourne. The concrete is set, the foundations laid, the pillars erected and it’s only a matter of time before the Greek Centre for Contemporary Culture- the vision of the Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne and Victoria – becomes a reality. A place to embrace newly-arrived Greeks, open our arms to Philhellenes and welcome second, third and fourth generations of Greek Australians to understand their roots, the Greek Centre for Contemporary Culture will represent our new community, but always remembering the contribution of the ones who paved the way for us. “We’re excited and ecstatic with the progress of the construction and the fact that nine levels are complete and the outside of the facade is now coming up so people will start getting a concrete feeling – not only from an emotional perspective in what it means to people but also a visual perspective because it’s up and in front of them,” says Bill Papastergiadis, President, Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne and Victoria. “It’s heralding a new approach to how we think of about ourselves in Melbourne and in Australia as Greek Australians. It will give us an opportunity to research and we will fund initiatives to allow us to explore through all means of cultural expression our identity and expressions and help develop new initiatives and artistic endeavours. We are already seeing people who have never previously had any involvement in the community wanting to participate and collaborate with us and this is before the centre is even open so you can only imagine what impact it will have in the future.”last_img read more

MIT develops wetsuit material inspired by beavers

September 20, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgAnimals that spend a lot of time in the water have various mechanisms to keep themselves warm and dry, and researchers at MIT are looking at the way furry semiaquatic mammals do it to develop a new class of insulating materials. Humans don’t really have any built-in insulation for the water, but by imitating the fur of semiaquatic mammals, we might be able to fake it.Animals like walruses and whales have thick layers of blubber to keep them warm, but that doesn’t help us much. Humans can’t just use more layers in the water as it would make us too ungainly. We’re already not built for aquatic living, after all. The small and lithe beaver or sea otter can’t carry around all that mass either. So, they have dense fur that traps air as an insulator instead. That may be the key to designing a thinner, lighter wetsuit that keeps the wearer warmer.Scientists from MIT led by Anette Hosoi were intrigued by the way semiaquatic mammals can remain warm and dry quickly with just a layer of fur.  It was already known that fur from such animals had two types of hair; long, thin guard hairs and short, bristly underfur. The team fabricated various fur-like surfaces from flexible PDMS (polydimethylsiloxane) casting rubber and submerged them in liquids at different speeds. The model allowed Hosoi’s team to work out the mechanics of this natural system.The model devised by the team accurately describes the way water pushes air into pockets. At the same time, the viscosity of the water causes it to stick to the hairs and prevents it from penetrating to the base. It’s the density and spacing of individual hairs that determine how much air is trapped, and thus how good an insulator a particular type of fur is. This model could be used to create a bio-inspired wetsuit with just the right amount of fuzz to keep the wearer mobile and warm. Since the model can also be adapted to other liquids, it also has potential industrial applications. I’m really hoping for that furry wetsuit, though.last_img read more

Earlier this week, we learned that Bowen will be heading to Japan to be honored in a special reunion hosted by his former students. In the invitation for him to return to Japan after 18 years, the students wrote: “Since studying dance with you for many wonderful years at Studio Ichi Ban-Gai and other dance studios in Tokyo and throughout Japan, many of us have developed careers in the performing arts as dancers, choreographers, teachers, directors and studio owners. Others have gone on to careers in designing, management and the corporate world while others have married and raised families. Whatever the chosen path, we all share a common history as your former students…” Bowen said he is overwhelmed… “They are actually having the event in my old neighbourhood called Azabu Ju-Ban … I plan to wear my TCI national costume.” Not only did Bowen dance and teach while in Japan; he created… “My last big production before I left was a Japanese language feature movie in which I co-starred called ‘Tonari no Bob Marley,’ I also wrote the theme song for the movie.” Next week is the Cultural holiday Bunka No Hi… Mr Bowen’s tribute night is planned for November 8th.

No arrest for Perry but mug shot to be taken

September 16, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgAUSTIN, Texas — A Texas judge opted Monday not to issue an arrest warrant against Gov. Rick Perry, but the Republican still faces the unflattering prospect of being booked, fingerprinted and having his mug shot taken — and has assembled a team of high-powered attorneys to fight the two felony counts of abuse of power against him.Leading conservatives around the country have mostly lined up to support the longest-serving governor in Texas history, and Perry’s aides said the case won’t derail his busy travel schedule, which includes visits to several key presidential battleground states as he continues to eye a second run for the White House in 2016.“This is nothing more than banana republic politics,” Tony Buzbee a Houston-based defense attorney who will head a cadre of four lawyers from Texas and Washington defending Perry, said at a news conference. “The charges lobbed against the governor are a really nasty attack not only on the rule of law but on the Constitution of the United States, the state of Texas and also the fundamental constitutional protections that we all enjoy.”Perry on Friday became the first Texas governor since 1917 to be indicted, and is facing charges of coercion and official oppression that carry a maximum sentence of 109 years in prison for carrying out a threat to veto funding for the state’s public integrity unit last summer.The governor has emphatically stood by his veto and denied all wrongdoing. The judge overseeing the case, Republican Bert Richardson, decided against issuing an arrest warrant and instead a special prosecutor appointed to the matter was planning a simple legal summons. That still means an arraignment and booking are in Perry’s future.last_img read more

Kirby Star Allies is a Triumph of Socialism

September 1, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgStay on target Trade In Your Nintendo Switch For a Better Battery (With a Catch)’Astral Chain’ and Other Dumb Nintendo Songs Kirby isn’t just one of Nintendo’s cutest mascots but also one of its more fascinating prominent B-tier franchises. It’s a 2D platformer but its floating mechanic negates the need for tricky jumping. It places a heavy emphasis on powers and combat, so much so that original creator Masahiro Sakurai next wound up creating Smash Bros., but it’s so easy that movesest depth is rarely required. And while there are fantastic “normal” Kirby games like the SNES classic Kirby Super Star or the more recent Kirby: Planet Robobot on 3DS, the best games in the franchise throw out the formula for weird fever dream concepts like drawing touch screen rainbow roads or living in a world of yarn or splitting Kirby’s soul into ten pieces.Kirby Star Allies, the pink puffball’s Nintendo Switch debut, initially disappointed me because by all definitions it is a “normal” Kirby game. Its ideas and improvements are more iterative than revolutionary. But normal Kirby is still good Kirby. And Star Allies’ strong core theme of creative teamwork through friendship makes it the most adorably socialist Nintendo Switch game you’ll play so far.The most immediately striking thing about Kirby Star Allies to me is just how much the traditional Kirby aesthetic is improved by the jump to high-definition. It’s not claymation or yarn-based, but even Kirby’s “regular” world is pretty weird with its angry tree faces, piles of whatever the heck “Waddle-Dees” are, and cosmic pseudo-nightmare fuel vibe underlying all the cartoon sweetness. And it looks stunning with this level of graphical fidelity.Something about the lighting gives Star Allies a kind of tilt-shift photography diorama look, like the level is a toybox, helping it almost approach the art style of the more experimental Kirby games. Even the 2D UI and menu elements have a really slick pop-art anime jazz production value.The compromise seems to be a cut to 30 frames per second with no anti-aliasing but honestly hardcore complaining about the frame rate in a Kirby game seems kind of ridiculous.The levels themselves aren’t a huge departure from a design standpoint. If you told me they were remixed versions of classic levels I’d probably believe you. Getting from one end to another is a breeze. I racked up dozens of lives without thinking. But if you’re willing to poke around you can find secrets like extra levels or StreetPass-esque puzzle pieces that slowly unlock concept art. The way levels are presented is at least pretty clever. I was initially worried by how quickly I got through the first three world maps. But the final “world” is really a galaxy consisting of discrete planets and moons that can be tackled in any order and basically make up half of the game’s total levels.But the big thing giving Kirby Star Allies more identity than just Kirby HD are the star allies themselves. As usual Kirby can suck up enemies to gain their powers. But now he can also throw a heart on them and create a co-op posse of up to four characters controlled by fellow humans with Joy-Con or shockingly competent AI. And you still kiss to share health.You can technically play Star Allies solo but the game practically revolves around you always having this squad. Any fight instantly becomes easier. Since you can ride an ally and control them, albeit using inputs that are a bit too fiddly, you basically have four different powers to swap between at any given moment. Even the text explanations for this mechanic are delightful. “Press these two buttons to say goodbye to a friend.”More importantly, Star Allies also has tons of creative gameplay features that take advantage of the four friends. Most powers can combine in really clever and satisfying ways. Light your sword on fire or electrify your staff. Launch a rock with psychic powers or chuck a friend with a good judo throw or leap together from a bouncy spider web.Beyond making combat more varied, specific powers frequently come in handy for specific environmental puzzles. While it’s not as robust as Breath of the Wild the elements naturally behave how you expect them to. Toss a frost bomb to cool fire walls or launch a boomerang cutter upward to spin an out of reach fan. Even just gathering friends and messing around their powers scratches a kind of Pokemon collector’s itch.The setpieces moments come when you and your comrades briefly join together into a single metaphor for the strength of a united labor class. Become a bridge so that others may cross your back to freedom. Lead the friend train to a new tomorrow. Let the gears of capitalism be crushed by your giant backtracking wheel body. We won’t spoil the final form and the almost Dragon Ball/Bayonetta-esque boss you fight but it’s both a testament to the victories possible when we seize the means of production and a tease at how cool a full 3D Kirby game might be.You can get through Star Allies in a few hours but there are reasons to come back. There are a handful of minigames like chopping wood or playing through levels as just the friend characters like Knuckle Joe and Bonkers. Try finding the retro Easter egg. You can also unlock new special friends in the Dream Palace. I loved rolling up with three (not-swole) King Dededes with flaming hammers behind me. Nintendo is providing even more friends as free DLC, including famous hamster Rick. Also, Marx.If Kirby Star Allies had to be a regular Kirby game, at least it had the decency to be a solid, gorgeous regular Kirby game with a truly enjoyable and multipurpose hook in the form of teaming up with allies.

first_img The CT scanner might not come with protocols that are adequate for each hospital situation, so at Phoenix Children’s Hospital they designed their own protocols, said Dianna Bardo, M.D., director of body MR and co-director of the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s. The CustomerAdvanced Imaging Specialists (AIS) is a partnership between Mercy Health Partners and leading radiologists in the Scranton, Penn. area. AIS is widely recognized as providing the highest quality outpatient diagnostic imaging services to patients in four convenient locations. AIS has long shown a commitment to providing the most advanced technologies available and to apply these technologies to help referring physicians accurately diagnose their patients. AIS’ operating philosophy has been to use the latest and most advanced technologies to effectively and efficiently care for patients. AIS offers the same level of professional service at all four locations to ensure physician and patient satisfaction. The four state-of-the-art imaging centers use the very latest Siemens medical equipment, a world leader in diagnostic imaging performance.CT studies are performed using one of the world’s most advanced 64-slice CT scanners, the Siemens SOMATOM Sensation. AIS also utilizes the Siemens Magnetom Symphony (Maestro Class) MRI, which provides exceptional imaging capabilities along.In addition, state-of-the-art Siemens equipment is being used in digital mammography, radiology fluoroscopy, computed radiology and ultrasound & 4D ultrasound applications. “We were able to replace our 4-year old PACS with the ImageGrid PACS for what we had budgeted for two mammography-only workstations”The ChallengeIn 2008, AIS decided to transition from analog mammography to digital mammography. As part of this change, AIS radiologists felt strongly that the digital mammography workflow should be consistent with the workflow that they had implemented for other modalities. AIS had implemented a PACS system a number of years ago and unfortunately, adding mammography diagnostic viewing capability to that PACS was not possible. During the course of discussions and product demonstrations, the radiologists expressed a desire to have a unified Radiology and mammography reading solution.At the time, AIS had two sites, with plans for significant growth through the opening of new sites and acquisition of existing imaging practices. In order for AIS radiologists to be able to provide the same high level of services and response time, it was critical to have a web-enabled state-of-the-art solution so that they could devote more of their time to diagnostics rather than having to travel from site to site. In addition, the other critical challenge the radiologists at AIS wanted to be addressed was the ability to read general radiology and digital mammography from a single workstation and from a single worklist. The SolutionAs part of the Siemens Novation implementation, the ImageGrid Mammography Viewer was presented as a possible solution. The radiologists were impressed with the features and functionalities of the highly cost-effective thin-client ImageGrid Mammography Viewer. Of particular interest to the radiologists was the highly customizable Mammography Hanging Protocols, which provides each radiologist with the ability to create their own desired workflow parameters and having those settings and preferences saved on the server for easy access from any workstation. In addition, the thin-client aspect of the ImageGrid Mammography Viewer was also attractive in that it allowed radiologists to read studies from anywhere. AIS was pleasantly surprised that the ImageGrid PACS storage/server system on which the Mammography Viewer would reside, was already able to accommodate multiple modalities and there would no additional fees for connecting other AIS modalities to it. In order to achieve the desired workflow, AIS would just need adequate concurrent user licenses for the ImageGrid Advanced Radiology Viewer, a FDA 510(k) cleared thin-client diagnostic reading application also residing on the ImageGrid storage/server system. It soon became apparent that for the cost of two typical Mammography-only Workstations, AIS would be able to replace their existing 4-year old PACS system with a new state-of-the-art ImageGrid Radiology / Mammography PACS solution. AIS implemented the ImageGrid PACS Appliance with 9 TB of archiving capacity along with two Radiology / Mammography workstations at each site. The workstation station – dubbed the “5-Headed Workstation” consists of Dual Head 5 MP for digital mammography, Dual Head 2 MP for General Radiology and a fifth monitor for radiologist worklist. The ResultsToday, AIS has successfully transitioned to digital mammography and offers an ACR accredited program which also includes other women’s health services such as ultrasound, breast MRI, dexa scans and thyroid biopsies. The ImageGrid Radiology/Mammography PACS Appliance was installed and AIS radiologists were able to create the desired hanging protocols and workflow parameters. In a short amount of time, ImageGrid Radiology/Mammography PACS has become a core part of AIS’ enterprisewide workflow. AIS radiologists are able to read all studies from any of their workstations and they can select studies to create their own worklists. They are also able to read studies generated at any of the four centers and provide diagnostic reports in a timely manner.“We were able to replace our 4-year old PACS with the Candelis solution for what we had budgeted to pay for two Mammography-only workstations” said David Soltis, PACS administrator at AIS. “Candelis has been a pleasure to work with and their commitment to customer satisfaction and the willingness to listen to their customers and implement feedback has meant that AIS has been able to get a full-featured solution at a very reasonable price.”ImageGrid’s inherent cost advantages mean that AIS will realize a significant return-on-investment (ROI), giving it the ability and the flexibility to devote financial resources to invest in the latest modalities for better patient care as well asnew facilities.“Candelis has us to grow and better compete with far larger institutions. With our transition to digital imaging completed in a very cost-effective way, we are able to profitably provide timely imaging services to patients and referring physicians,” said Dave Soltis.

Derrick Hall satisfied with Dbacks buying and se

August 11, 2019 0 Comments

first_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Massie said he stayed sharp and improved by facing Arizona’s first-team defense. For someone like Massie, who was looking to earn a first-team spot, that was his way of showing the coaches what he was capable of. And while that may be a difficult situation, he said it’s one he could not afford to fret about.“You can’t look at it that way because that’s going to be your ticket onto the field,” he said. “You can try to pout and be mad that you’re not out there playing on Sundays, but during the week is what counts.”And if he should see the field Sunday, Massie believes he’ll show everyone he’s improved from the end of last season.“The thing that haunted me last year was the pass protection,” he said. “So the thing that I did in the offseason and all through this season is just make sure I don’t give up any sacks.“In practice, in walkthroughs, just make sure I become a dominant pass protector in this league.” 0 Comments   Share   Based on that, most figured Massie would be the team’s starting right tackle this season, but the addition of veteran Eric Winston just before training camp sent the second-year pro to the bench. With the current group of linemen struggling to keep defenders away from quarterback Carson Palmer, head coach Bruce Arians and offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin have hinted that Massie may find himself back in the lineup some when the Cardinals face the Falcons Sunday.“We’re hoping, we’ll see how the game goes,” Arians said. “But I’d like to get him in and get some action.”Arians said Massie has looked good the last few weeks, and is likely to play at least a series. From there, they’ll “see how it goes.”Massie is certainly looking forward to the opportunity to get back on the field, saying he’s made sure to practice every week as if he was going to play. He admitted having to sit so much has been frustrating, but understands that the NFL is a business and all he can do is continue to work hard.“It’s not my call to say who goes out there and who doesn’t,” he said. “I just do what I can during the week during practice and wait to see what the decision is Sunday.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Bobby Massie’s rookie season was really a tale of two halves.Pressed into a starting role from the beginning, the fourth-round pick out of Ole Miss struggled mightily out of the gate.According to ProFootballFocus, Massie allowed pressure on 14.5 percent of his pass blocking snaps in the season’s first seven games, surrendering 47 total pressures: 12 sacks, two QB hits and 33 hurries.However, things turned around shortly thereafter, as the rookie found his footing and allowed a total of just 14 pressures over the final nine games.
