first_imgResidents of the Garrygort community close to Kerrykeel and Milford have expressed serious reservations over plans to construct two wind turbines in their neighbourhood.Members of the local community told the Tirconail Tribune that they do not want these turbines in such close proximity.They point to the unacceptable noise levels, visual pollution and intereference to daily life of the people and animals, flicker effect along with the potential for serious deterioration in the value of land and sites in the area. A number of residents who contacted the newspaper this week say that leaflets on behalf of Garrymore Windfarms Ltd. were delivered to households this week inviting them to an information evening on Tuesday.The event in the supper room of the Milford Parochial Hall on Tuesday evening will run from 7.00 to 9pm.Householders in the area that these turbines will be fully visible from the town of Milford and they do nothing to enhance the landscape.The Tribune reports that the names of an architect’s office in Northern Ireland are on the leaflet for those seeking further information. The residents of the Garrygort area said it is important for the wider community to come to the information evening and to make their concerns known to the developers of the project.Kerrykeel and Milford residents opposed to wind turbines plan was last modified: November 21st, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:KERRYKEELmeetingMilfordwind turbineslast_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Last summer, farmers in the Midwest got an unwelcome surprise after planting native seed on Conservation Reserve Program acres. Palmer amaranth, the aggressive and hard-to-kill weed, had established in droves. As a possible solution, some states declared Palmer a noxious weed, which prohibits its sale and transport.“I’ve had seed growers call me,” said Pat Tranel, molecular weed scientist in the crop sciences department at the University of Illinois. “Their businesses are up in the air because of this. Unless they have a way to certify their product is Palmer-free, they can’t sell it.”The typical testing method involves growing a sample of seeds until the plants are large enough to be identified, but this is a slow and potentially unreliable process.“It all takes a long time, and sometimes the seeds don’t germinate during the test,” Tranel said. “Alternatively, there’s a company that will test individual seeds using DNA sequencing, but they’re charging $100 per seed. It’s not cost-effective.”Tranel and graduate student Brent Murphy developed a way around these issues. Their low-cost method can identify Palmer amaranth DNA from within a mixed sample without having to grow the plants. The assay, which uses a method known as quantitative PCR, can detect genetic variations unique to Palmer even when flooded with samples from closely related species, including waterhemp.“Palmer, redroot pigweed, waterhemp — they all have tiny black seeds that basically look the same. We needed a way to efficiently extract DNA from pooled seed samples and, if it’s present, identify Palmer,” Tranel said.Once Tranel and Murphy developed this assay, they worked with U of I Extension’s Plant Clinic to optimize the test for mixed seed samples. Diagnostic outreach Extension specialist Diane Plewa and Plant Clinic technician Elizabeth Phillippi began trying different methods to extract DNA from seed. The assay is very sensitive, but if DNA is not correctly extracted from a lone Palmer amaranth seed in a mixed sample, it won’t be detected.“The trick is to make sure every seed is ground up during the extraction process,” Plewa said.The researchers were able to consistently detect a single Palmer amaranth seed when mixed with 99 waterhemp seeds, and they believe the assay could achieve even greater sensitivity with additional refinement.The Plant Clinic has optimized a protocol for commercial testing of seed lots.“We have a test that we feel very confident in,” Plewa said. “We are offering the service now, for $50 per sample.”For more information, call 217-649-3941 or visit the Plant Clinic website.The article, “A quantitative assay for Amaranthus palmeri identification,” is published in Pest Management Science. Authors Brent Murphy and Pat Tranel are housed in the Department of Crop Sciences at U of I, and Diane Plewa, Elizabeth Phillippi, and Suzanne Bissonnette are from U of I Extension’s Plant Clinic. The work was supported by a USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture Hatch grant.last_img read more

first_imgrichard macmanus The popularity of Twitter has produced a number of clones in China, just as there are Facebook clones. Some of China’s Twitter clones have been closed down by the Chinese government, but some have survived. We take a look at both cases in this post. We also assess Twitter’s chances of success in China, should it ever be freed from the ‘Great Firewall of China.’ Fanfou, Jiwai and Digu were some of the first Twitter clones to become successful in China. Howeverall three – plus Twitter itself – were blocked by the Chinese government in July 2009, because of their usage during the uprisings in Ürümqi. According to an AFP article, Chinese authorities blamed online agitators for helping to stoke violence in that region. Prior to being shut down, Fanfou had been dubbed “China’s Twitter” and had almost reached 1 million registered users by the end of June 2009. An October 2009 report by China Daily noted that Fanfou was founded in July 2007 by Wang Xing, a young entrepreneur who also founded China’s current most popular social network Renren (formally known as Xiaonei). Both Renren and Fanfou were almost carbon copies of their U.S. equivalent services – Facebook and Twitter respectively. Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Weibo Rises to Take Fanfou’s PlaceSince the closure of Twitter, Fanfou, Jiwai and Digu, other services have risen to take their place. Taotao (owned by the company that produces popular IM service QQ) andZuosa.com are two examples. However it isWeibo that has emerged to become the biggest micro-blogging service in China. Weibo is owned by Sina.com, a huge portal company in China, and is connected to Sina’s blogging platform. Weibo is very much like Twitter, in that it allows users to post short messages 140 Chinese characters or less via the Web, SMS or MMS. Although according to Chinese Internet expert and Beijing resident Kaiser Kuo, in Chinese 140 characters can actually produce quite a long message.The major difference between Weibo and Twitter, according to Kuo, is that Weibo is censored. Or in the parlance of Chinese Internet users, it is “harmonized.”Sina’s Weibo probably has a much greater chance of surviving than its counterparts like Twitter and Fanfou, because it knows how to self-censor. Meng Bo, deputy editor-in-chief of Sina.com and project manager of Sina Weibo, told China Daily in October that “Sina is playing by the rules as they are laid down, with strict word filtering in operation.”According to Meng, there are two teams of staff “keeping close watch to ensure there is no vulgar content or anything that violates the rules.” Would Twitter Succeed in China Anyway?China’s surviving micro-blogging services are tightly controlled by the censorship climate in China. However even if Twitter became available again in China, would it take off with mainstream Chinese Internet users? Kaiser Kuo thinks that it wouldn’t, because of the popularity of currently operational services like Weibo and Taotao. He remarked that although there would be an uptake in the number of users on Twitter, if it was ever to be made available again, Weibo and others will have gained too much momentum by then.

first_imgThe Congress on Friday demanded that President Pranab Mukherjee dismiss Goa Governor Mridula Sinha for committing “constitutional impropriety” and “dereliction of duty”.The opposition party latched on to Sinha’s admission in an interview that she consulted Finance Minister Arun Jaitley before inviting the BJP for government formation in the State.“We urge the President of India to exercise his powers under Article 156 (1) and immediately dismiss the Governor of Goa for abdicating her Constitutional responsibilities and oath of secrecy,” Congress leader Pratap Singh Bajwa said.He said the President of India has already dismissed the Arunachal Pradesh Governor for similar acts of impropriety, saying this will act as a deterrent to other governors to work within constitutional limits.Bajwa said the Supreme Court has reiterated that it is the duty of the Governor to “act judiciously” while exercising their powers under Article 164 at the time of appointing the Chief Minister.“However, the atrocious admission of Governor Sinha conclusively proves that her actions were politically motivated under the clear instructions of the Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley,” he told reporters.Putting forth the Congress’ demands, the party’s Rajya Sabha MP said these revelations demonstrate that the act of the governor to consult the finance minister and not the President of India “is a serious matter of constitutional impropriety and an unpardonable dereliction of duty“.He asked that since the finance minister could not have advised the governor in government formation, “why should the Prime Minister not take action against the Finance Minister?.” “Or are we to assume that he was authorised by the dirty tricks department of the BJP?” he asked.The Congress leader cited an interview of Sinha where she made the “startling and audacious revelation”, and “shockingly accepted that she consulted Union Minister Arun Jaitley” to invite the BJP for government formation in the State.“This proves that BJP manufactured the Goa majority while the Governor acted in cahoots with the central leadership in Delhi,” he said.On Sinha’s claim that she heard that Congress could not elect their Legislature party leader nor get enough support, Bajwa asked “where did she hear it from? Did she hear it from anybody in the Congress party or was it ‘Akashwani’?” “How can she take such a decision without consulting the Honourable President of India or without studying its legal ramifications?” he asked.He said under the established convention in such a scenario, the Governor should have approached the President and submitted a report to him seeking guidance for the way forward.“Rather than consulting the President of India or the Attorney General of India, she consulted the Union Finance Minister who is a party in this case, hence indulging in massive Constitutional impropriety,” he alleged.The Congress party also alleged that the Constitution is left “bruised and battered, as yet again the BJP subverts the Governor for their own petty gains”.last_img read more

first_imgAs Madhya Pradesh continues to reel under frequent and unscheduled power cuts, officials of the state electricity company are holding bats responsible for the woes, claiming that the flying mammals are causing faults in the supply lines, especially in the state capital. They say bats hanging on the power supply lines sometimes cause short circuits, which ultimately lead to outages. This claim has triggered a fresh round of blame game between the Kamal Nath-led Congress government and the opposition, BJP. The saffron party said instead of giving these excuses, the power utility and the state government should work in a responsible manner, while the ruling Congress said there was no crisis as MP is a power surplus state. State Energy Minister Priyavrat Singh, however, contended that overloaded power transformers and not bats could be the main reason behind the problem. Talking to PTI, the minister said, “In a review meeting of Bhopal district (held on June 14), an official of the power company had said that bats are creating faults in the supply lines along the lake (Upper Lake)…But I don’t think this is a major reason. I pulled up the official, who had said so.”“I told the official to repair the supply lines by insulating them. This work had already been carried out. I asked the officials to consider installation of ultrasonic devices, after due environment clearances, in the areas where bats are creating problems,” he added.Mr. Singh said there were several others reasons that might be behind the faults in supply lines.“At some places, a squirrel may create a problem. But the main reason of fault is overloaded power transformers. Maintenance of power supply lines was neglected for years. I asked the officials to carry out proper maintenance of the distribution lines,” he said. Spokesperson of Madhya Pradesh Central Power Distribution Company Ltd, Manoj Dwivedi, said, “The faults in power supply lines in the vicinity of Upper Lake (in Bhopal) were reported due to bats. This largely happens due to short- circuits caused by bats hanging on the power supply lines.” The company carries out work of insulation in such cases, he said.“That area of Bhopal had bats earlier too, but power supply used to be uninterrupted. Instead of giving excuses, the power company as well as the government should work responsibly. Were the bats born only after the Congress came to power?” state BJP spokesman Rajnish Agrawal said. The Congress government had earlier said that poor quality of transformers purchased during the previous BJP dispensation was the reason behind the electricity issues. During the campaign for the Lok Sabha elections in April this year, Chief Minister Kamal Nath had alleged that there was a conspiracy behind the power cuts in the state. At that time, state Finance Minister Tarun Bhanot had also said that some officials of the power distribution company were working against the ruling Congress, resulting in power outages.“During the campaigning for the Lok Sabha elections, Nath, in order to hide his government’s failure, used to blame the BJP and certain officials for power cuts. But even after the polls, outages continued in every part of the state despite it being a power surplus state,” Mr. Agrawal said. He said that inept handling by the Congress government has created this crisis. However, the state Congress said that the BJP had run out of issues and was raising hue and cry over such “non-issues“.“Pre-monsoon maintenance is a routine process and it was happening during the BJP rule as well. The technical faults are being repaired. MP is a power surplus state and there is no crisis. Opposition is spreading lies,” state Congress spokesman Pankaj Chaturvedi said.“Due to factionalism within the BJP, the leaders of that party are trying to outdo each other and levelling false allegations,” he added.last_img read more
