Coal burning, road dust most toxic air particles

first_imgA new Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) air pollution study of millions of deaths from heart disease, lung disorders, and other causes in 75 American cities found that the effect of particles on mortality rates was about 75% higher in cities with a high proportion of sulfates from coal burning power plants than in cities with little sulfate pollution. It was about 50% higher in cities with a higher proportion of particles from road dust.The air pollution effects were highest when the temperatures were mild, and windows are most likely to be open, said lead author Lingzhen Dai, doctoral student in the Department of Environmental Health at HSPH. For each 10 micrograms per cubic meter of air particles, city death rates increased by over 1%. What’s more, the concentration of fine particulate matter in the air fluctuated with changing seasons and weather.The paper was published online in Environmental Health Perspectives on May 6, 2014.“These findings confirm the large number of studies showing airborne particles kill, and provide insight into which types are most toxic,” said Joel Schwartz, professor of environmental epidemiology at HSPH, senior author.

first_imgATHENS — Media coverage of the demonstrations taking place in Athens often includes footage of anarchists throwing Molotov cocktails, riot police releasing a sea of tear gas and widespread chaos. Needless to say, I was a little nervous when my friends and I decided to head to Syntagma Square during a scheduled demonstration. The Greek Parliament Building is located in Syntagma Square, making it the epicenter for Athenian protests. Tensions were especially high Saturday, as Greek Parliament prepared to vote on another round of austerity measures. If passed, the new regulations would curtail laborers’ collective bargaining rights and lower the minimum wage, among other mandates. Many groups, such as the Pan-Hellenic Fighting Front, were unhappy with the stipulations. The groups often congregate somewhere in the city at a scheduled time and march to Parliament as one massive, indignant crowd. The demonstrations typically start peacefully, but have the potential to erupt into occasional violence. Just the day before our visit to Syntagma Square, protestors smashed the sidewalk and threw chunks of marble at riot police. We arrived at the Parliament building before the groups started to congregate, so the crowd was relatively sparse. I soon realized a lot of the people there were like me, curious bystanders wanting to witness an event of worldwide relevance. The square had an unexpected atmosphere. There were food vendors selling bread, souvlaki and coffee, and the ever-present stray dogs were lounging as if nothing out of the ordinary was occurring. Greek music was blaring, interspersed with protestors yelling over the speakers. I found myself directly in front of the Parliament building, less than five feet from a row of stoic Greek riot police. They each had full body armor, shields and gas masks at the ready. A few Greeks approached the line of officers and screamed insults at them with particularly incendiary Greek insults. The mood of the crowd became uneasy as rows and rows of protesters filed into the square. I noticed everyone around me had some kind of face coverage, whether it was a scarf or a painter’s mask, in anticipation of tear gas exposure. Some sprayed their own faces with a white mixture of Maalox and water to combat the gas, giving much of the crowd the appearance of a child dressed as a vampire on Halloween. People carried signs and chanted. Eventually, a couple of my friends and I felt like a taste of America and got lunch at a nearby McDonald’s, indoors and in view of the ongoing protest. The protest turned out to be uneventful, as the crowd gradually dispersed without any violent skirmishes. The same could not be said Sunday night, unfortunately. Greek Parliament voted to approve the austerity measures, and Syntagma Square erupted into violence. Luckily I stayed away from the square that day, but the explosions of Molotov cocktails and stun grenades could be heard from Pangrati, the neighborhood where I am living as a student this semester. Many followers of current events might believe everyone present at the protests is ready and willing to destroy their city and throw rocks at police. Relatively small factions of people are present at the demonstrations that make it their mission to start violence, and once they do, the crowd descends into chaos. Further, these potential riots are by no means spontaneous. The more volatile demonstrations are planned in advance and are avoidable for those wanting to stay away. On Monday, my teachers were absolutely devastated by the damage done to their city square, where flames consumed at least three historic buildings. The Greeks are a very proud people, who are profoundly dissatisfied with their government and crippled by harsh austerity measures. Although recent measures prevented Greece from defaulting on its loans, the future of the country’s government is anything but certain.last_img read more

Prosecutor charges former SMC worker for voyeurism

first_imgAn email was sent to Saint Mary’s students Thursday morning providing updates on last week’s incident in which a maintenance worker was fired and arrested for allegedly observing students in the fourth floor restrooms of Le Mans Hall.According to the email on April 17, the prosecutor’s office formally charged David Summerfield, a former maintenance worker, with voyeurism and theft for stealing students’ clothing from a laundry room.On Monday, the Saint Joseph County Special Victims Unit (SVU) investigators, escorted by campus personnel, conducted an investigation of Le Mans’ attic and the private and community restrooms on the fourth floor. Police documented 21 holes in these locations. A female painter and a female maintenance worker then patched all of those holes.The email stated College personnel inspected all restrooms on campus, and female Building Services employees checked the bathrooms in the residence halls.Saint Mary’s President Carol Ann Mooney’s email said she hopes students feel more at ease knowing the situation was quickly resolved by the SVU, and the College took immediate and appropriate actions.“We notified all involved or potentially impacted and conducted a campus-wide inspection to identify and fix any areas of concern,” Mooney said in the email. “It was our intent to address this as quickly as humanly possible. Nothing is more important than the safety, security and privacy of our students, campus guests, faculty and staff.“This is a very troubling moment in Saint Mary’s 170-year history, but one man’s actions certainly does not mar the excellence of this institution, the faculty, our students and the staff.”Mooney asked students to remain vigilant and report anything that does not look or feel right to Campus Security (284-5000), Residence Life (284-4522) or a Resident Advisor. It is because of staff on campus that the issue came to light, Mooney said.“A vigilant employee helped surface this issue, and he is a wonderful example of what it means to be a part of the Saint Mary’s community, a community that cares about and looks out for each other,” she said.Tags: SMC, Summerfield, voyeurismlast_img read more

Iberdrola planning major U.S. renewables expansion

first_imgIberdrola planning major U.S. renewables expansion FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:Iberdrola SA, the world’s biggest wind power producer, plans to expand its renewable capacity in the United States by about 50 percent over four years as part of the Spanish electric utility’s global plan to reduce carbon emissions, its chief executive told Reuters on Monday.Ignacio Galan, who was in New York to speak at the United Nations’ Global Compact Leaders’ Summit, said the company expects to spend about $15 billion in the United States on its transmission and distribution system and increase its renewable generation to around 10,000 megawatts (MW) by the end of 2022.“More and more investors are looking for companies with clean energy and sustainability goals,” Galan said, noting Iberdrola sells the energy that helps those companies meet those targets.Iberdrola committed to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions intensity by 50 percent by 2030 compared to 2007 levels and become carbon neutral by 2050. More than half of its 48,800 MW of generation around the world is renewable with the remainder fueled mostly by natural gas, nuclear and coal. Galan said the company wants to shut its last two coal plants, which are located in Spain, by 2020.Through its majority-owned Avangrid Inc subsidiary, Iberdrola has over 6,500 MW of renewables in the United States. It is the country’s third-biggest wind power provider behind NextEra Energy and Berkshire Hathaway.Galan said Avangrid’s customer base was changing as more companies seek to buy energy directly from wind farms to meet climate change and sustainability goals. “In recent years, large customers are also coming to us to buy renewable power directly because it is cheaper and cleaner,” Galan said, noting Iberdrola has long-term power purchase agreements with companies including Amazon.com, Alphabet’s Google and Nike.More: Iberdrola plans to boost U.S. renewable power by about 50 percent: CEOlast_img read more

UberBOAT will be available to them again this year to experience their best vacation with us and continue to promote Croatia around the world”, Said Davor Tremac, Uber’s CEO for Southeast Europe.In the meantime, there is no need to worry about it. ”Transfer from the mainland to any island and vice versa will be available for a maximum of eight people and in addition to the transfer, it will be possible to choose the option of excursions for which users will be able to decide where they want to go. Both mentioned options provide residents and tourists with the opportunity to enjoy the beauties of the Croatian coast with such an important connection as well as the possibility of fast and personalized transfer.It is also important to point out that all service providers are licensed occasional maritime transport companies, whose captains have valid commercial transport licenses.last_img read more

Jack Wilshere reveals where he disagreed with Arsene Wenger at Arsenal

first_imgJack Wilshere reveals where he disagreed with Arsene Wenger at Arsenal Comment Wilshere won two FA Cups at Arsenal (Picture: Getty Images)Wilshere has fond memories of his time at Arsenal and credits Arsene Wenger for making his dream of playing for his boyhood club come true.‘He [Wenger] was always so good with me. He made me feel like I was important,’ Wilshere said.‘Without him I don’t think my Arsenal career would have went the way that it did and I don’t think I would have got the opportunities that I did.AdvertisementAdvertisementMore: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut? Ian Wright picks his Arsenal starting XI vs Manchester CityArsene Wenger explains why Mikel Arteta is ‘lucky’ to be managing Arsenal‘One thing I always felt from him was that he respected me and he really rated me as a player, he knew my ability and I felt that from him. To have that trust from a manager, you can’t beat that feeling where going into a game you have confidence.‘If you have an off game you know he’s gonna stick by you, he’s gonna back you. Over the years I felt that and that was so important to me and that is and why I respect him so much and I thank him for everything.’MORE: Manchester United should have signed Arsenal legend Tony Adams, says Phil NevilleMORE: Liverpool enter race to sign long-term Arsenal transfer target Dominik SzoboszlaiFollow Metro Sport across our social channels, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.For more stories like this, check our sport page.

But we laughed about it as well,’ Wilshere told Arsenal’s In Lockdown podcast.‘When I first got into the team I played on the right wing and I actually really enjoyed it. I never saw myself playing there but I really enjoyed it, cutting in from the right, taking either a shot or a through ball and I really enjoyed it.‘Then when I started playing in the Premier League, we used to play a 4-2-3-1 and I’d play in the two in midfield. I think that was only because of the injuries at the time but then I took my opportunity, he stuck by me and I learnt that position that year.‘But then when I came back from that injury, I think he saw me playing further forward. He wanted me to play as a No.10 and, don’t get me wrong, I did enjoy it but I found it more difficult playing there. I enjoyed it more playing a little bit deeper and getting on the ball, controlling the game.And then obviously, I started playing holding midfield for England and I loved it. Things went really well when I was playing there and I felt like I was learning that role and then I came back and had a conversation with Arsene and he was like, “No, I don’t see you playing there”.‘We didn’t really play that formation where there was that one holding midfielder anyway but I wanted to play in the two but he kept playing me in the No.10 role which I enjoyed… listen, I was playing No.10 with the No.10 on my back so I was living the dream but I just felt I could give a little bit more when I was deeper.’ Advertisementlast_img read more

BIFA: Sulphur Surcharge Will Be Extremely Unpopular

first_imgThe British International Freight Association (BIFA) has slammed the recent introduction of the sulphur surcharge by the container shipping industry, describing it as unjustified.To remind, the world’s largest liner company Maersk Line is planning to introduce a new fuel adjustment surcharge ahead of the 2020 sulphur cap. The surcharge will be introduced on January 1, 2019, and it will be levied separately from the company’s freight rate.As explained, the new Bunker Adjustment Factor (BAF) surcharge aims at recovering Maersk Line’s costs of compliance with the global sulphur cap, which is set to increase the company’s fuel bill by USD 2 billion a year.Robert Keen, BIFA Director General, said rises of such magnitude were unjustified and could be construed as “blatant profiteering by shipping lines determined to exploit the situation.”BIFA would prefer any necessary increases to be consolidated within freight rates and with any required fluctuation being managed against that figure. “BIFA members are now faced with the task of explaining yet another surcharge to their customers, and what the rationale behind it is. The sulphur surcharge is bound to be extremely unpopular,” Keen said.Earlier this year, leading container shipping companies, Maersk Line, MSC and CMA CGM, introduced “emergency” bunker surcharges in response to rising fuel costs.BIFA has been vocal opponent of the liners’ surcharges, saying that often they are unjust and baseless.last_img read more
