British egg industry calls for government support

first_imgThe British Egg Industry Council (BEIC) is calling for an effective intra-EU ban on the trade of egg and egg products produced by conventionally caged (‘battery’) hens from entering the UK market from the beginning of next year.At a reception hosted by The Earl of Shrewsbury and Waterford, at the House of Lords this week, Mark Williams, chief executive of the BEIC said it was there to try and avoid the potential disaster that was heading towards the egg industry.He said producers had spent £400m in preparation for the new law, coming in on 1 January 2012, which prohibits the use of conventional cages for laying eggs, but he said that not all producers in the EU would comply with the ban and that current enforcement measures were totally ineffective.According to the BEIC the latest data has indicated that 23% of EU egg production is forecast to be ’illegal’ on 1 January 2012, but Williams said the real problem was that it would cost 8-10% less to produce an egg from a conventional cage, than the cheapest legal alternative from this date, putting UK producers’ livelihoods at risk. Parliamentary Under Secretary of State Lord Henley said that it was important the UK egg industry was allowed to operate on a level playing field. He said the UK government would play a full part in EU discussions, and would work with the European Commission on what was possible.last_img read more

Coup a further complication for tricky Myanmar-China ties

first_imgBANGKOK (AP) — Before Monday’s coup, relations between Myanmar and China already were complicated by Chinese investments in its infrastructure and the Myanmar military’s campaigns along their shared border. The military deposed civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi a little over a year after Chinese President Xi Jinping made a show of support to her with the first visit by a head of state from Beijing to Myanmar since 2001. Analysts say that even if China played no role at all in ousting Suu Kyi, Beijing is likely to gain still greater sway over the country. That’s even more likely if the U.S. and other Western governments try to punish the new military regime through sanctions.last_img read more

Share Share CoronavirusLifestyleLocalNewsPoliticsRegional CARICOM Officials Agree on COVID-19 Protocol by: – March 2, 2020 Tweet (Barbados Today) CARICOM officials at a special emergency meeting in Bridgetown today ramped up the region’s response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) even as three non-English speaking countries confirmed cases.center_img Share A wide cross-section of officials including representatives from the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO), Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA), Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA), CARICOM Implementation Agency for Crime and Security (IMPACS) and representatives of the leadership of the cruise ship industry and their representative bodies, the Florida Caribbean Cruise Associate (FCCA) and the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) participated in the deliberations.                      Mottley announced that a regional protocol establishing minimum standards for dealing with the COVID-19 virus and other infectious diseases was approved that defines the roles and responsibilities of governments and the cruise line industry.She also disclosed that agreement was reached to establish a framework for an expanded bureau of Heads of Government to start discussions with regional and international partners to ensure countries are prepared to tackle any eventuality.“Whether from our partners in the travel and tourism industry, from our partners in international financial institutions or regional financial institutions, or our regional and local private sector in order to be able to increase our capacity to contain and manage any outbreak.“And against that background, we have asked PAHO and the Caribbean Public Health Agency to help us with the identification of the gaps that exist within our respective member states that as we move to marshall our resources we will be in a position to help.”PAHO today revealed there were three cases of COVID-19 in the Dominican Republic, two cases in St Maarten and one case in St Barts.                          CARICOM Chairman Prime Minister Mia MottleyPrime Minister Mottley warning against panic stressed that countries, “will continue to be guided by the science and medical officials on the matter so that we can all times protect the health of our citizens and all visiting our territories and at the same time protect the economic stability of our region and countries given the fact that panic and fear can have a greater deleterious impact, a greater negative impact on our countries than COVID-19 itself.”She called for region-wide public service announcements via traditional and social media to help citizens better understand the virus and prevent infection, She urged citizens to only seek information from credible established sources at the local, regional and international level.“We need to contextualize this and the one thing we cannot do is to start to attack nationalities or countries or to get a level of xenophobia and to close off borders, to create barriers that will in fact lead to loss of jobs, loss of economic activity, greater social implosion, greater opportunities for crime and all of the other things which are equally public health disorders,” Mottley cautioned.The Prime Minister maintained it was within the region’s capacity to detect, contain and manage the virus but it would require cooperation, partnership, discipline and communication. 211 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring!last_img read more

Ronaldo: Messi and I are footballing anomalies

first_imgThe Portugal international, who now has three Ballons d’Or to his name, heralded himself and his Liga rival while also discussing when he might retire.Cristiano Ronaldo has described himself and Barcelona rival Lionel Messi as footballing anomalies for the way they have kept themselves at the top of world football for an unprecedented amount of time.The Real Madrid forward, 29, picked up the third Ballon d’Or trophy of his career on Monday, defeating four-time winner Messi and World Cup-winning Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.Ronaldo acknowledged that he and Messi are two of the only players to have maintained their aura of invincibility for so long, and the Portugal international puts the fulfilling achievements down to hard work.”To be honest, no, I didn’t think I’d be at the top of world football for so many years,” he told Fifa.com. “It all happened so fast. In my opinion, the hardest thing is maintaining that level.”I’m proud to have been in the World XI for eight consecutive years and always vying to be among the best three, as it’s something very few people manage to do. I think just Messi and I have done it, not many more anyway. “I don’t think anyone else has done it eight years in a row, which is why it’s immensely satisfying. Year after year I keep working hard with my club and national team so that I continue to stand out. This recognition is an indication that things are going well and that I’m enjoying an exceptional career.”Ronaldo also expressed he is well aware he will be considered a legend once he hangs up his boots, though he remains uncertain if his mind and body have another decade of footballing action in them.”In truth, I don’t think about my legacy,” he added. “I know I’ll have a place in the history of the game because of what I’m doing and winning, whether at an individual or team level.” know I’ll have a nice page devoted to me between some of the all-time greats, and that makes me happy. I’m 29 now but I feel great, like I’m still 25! I think I can play on for another five, six or seven years at a high level. Beyond that, we’ll have to see.”It’s conceivable I play until I’m 40 years old but, as I said before, it’s a case of seeing how I feel year after year, how motivated I am and if I’m still useful to my team like in the past. “As for going on until 40… If I want to play until then, I will, though I might be dragging myself around by then! But while I’m playing to an acceptable standard – acceptable to me, that is, and at a level my fans and club deserve – then I want to continue. Honestly, though, it’s not something I’m thinking about yet.”The ex-Manchester United forward has been prolific once again for Real Madrid in 2014-15, scoring 33 goals in all competitions as the European champions top La Liga.last_img read more

Recent Changes to LEED for Homes — Part 1

first_imgStructural changes I DON’T likeThe LEED for Homes Committee was very happy with several innovations we pioneered – things we felt were distinct improvements over the more senior members of the LEED family, for reasons of clarity. One of these was having prerequisites and optional measures reside within the same credit, so it was easy to understand the baseline requirements and then the enhanced measures that could be taken to step up performance above the baseline in a given area. Sadly, that wisdom has been steamrollered under the behemoth that is non-residential LEED. The prerequisites and credits are now decoupled, irrationally, with separate names and numbers – purely for the sake of conformity, alas.The threshold adjustment mechanism to account for home size impacts – though not very aptly called, originally, the “Home Size Adjustment” (no, the homes’ sizes were not being adjusted) – has been transformed into a prerequisite, EAp4, Home Size. I haven’t had time to play with the numbers to see how this affects scoring, if at all. But I do lament the move, if for only this reason: the mechanism was developed to account for not only lower or higher energy use associated with smaller-than-average or larger-than-average homes, but also for differences in material resource consumption. This idea will now be lost – whether or not it’s accounted for in the numbers.The newly remodeled prerequisite is also now tied to the Energy Star for Homes, version 3, reference home – which was undoubtedly fashioned to some degree after the original LEED for Homes mechanism. Perhaps it’s an improvement, perhaps not. I haven’t yet had the opportunity to plumb its depths.Another reversion to the non-residential LEED norm is the move of low-emitting building materials from their original home (MR2.2) to the Indoor Environmental Quality category. The logic of their former placement was to enable a specifier to understand all the different material properties that were of interest when selecting materials. Ah, consistency – the hobgoblin of small minds!Now on to more petty complaints: does anyone really think that having a bunch of “cases” and “options” and “paths” (which appear now in numerous credits) lends to clarity? Not me! I also find that while some credit language has been nicely trimmed and clarified, some has been muddied and rendered overly complex and layered.I also fail to understand why the Innovation and Design Process category has been split into two categories, Integrative Process (comprising one lonely credit) and Innovation (which has but a single prerequisite and two credits). Was ID really so overcrowded?On the other hand, the Awareness and Education (AE) category has disappeared, and its contents subsumed into Energy and Atmosphere. Since there were only two AE credits – that really should have been one all along – I don’t object to the category going away, but the vestigial credit, now EAp3, really isn’t only about energy.And then we have the Regional Priority category, comprising the single Regional Priority credit. I would have really preferred to see some consolidation – perhaps into a nice, tidy, “Other” category. But that’s just me, apparently.Now on to some categories – not necessarily in order, but rather in order of most improved to most … well, you fill in the blank. BLOGS BY ANN EDMINSTER High-Performance and Net-Zero Homes — Part 1The Green Countertop DilemmaMore Lighting Options, Please?!A Theory of Work: What Number Are You?The First … Charrette?Ready, Set, Go!Does Green Building Cost More? Water efficiency (WE)The new WEc1 provides a performance pathway alternative to the prescriptive credits WEc2 (indoor water use) and WEc3 (outdoor water use), which mirror and consolidate the old WE3, SS2.3, and SS2.4. This is very sensible and uses the EPA WaterSense Water Budget Tool to calculate percentage reductions from a baseline.WEc2 now includes clothes washers and reduces the allowable flow rates for lavatory faucets and showerheads. There is now only one award level for toilets. Any fixtures with a flow rating higher than 2.5 gpm now trigger mandatory use of WEc1.WEc3 may or may not be an improvement – it seems straightforward, but the proof will be in the pudding. It combines limits to turf grass with minimums for native/adapted planting area. Projects with pools or other outdoor water features are required to use WEc1. Structural changes I LIKEFirst, there’s some good news with regard to the rating system structure: midrise projects have been integrated into the rating system, no longer being shunted into a separate document. It’s about time! (If we could get the California version integrated, too, I would be even happier.)It’s also great to see that credits that include multiple performance levels are no longer parsed (absurdly) into numbered sub-credits. The levels have also been evened out more rationally into proportional steps … at least in most multi-level credits. My perspective on the latest version of the LEED for Homes standard (version 4) has an inescapably historic slant. This doesn’t mean that I categorically reject change. In fact, much as a parent reserves the right to be her child’s most ardent fan and harshest critic at times, I have not been at all hesitant to point out flaws in LEED for Homes over the years since the launch of the pilot.Having established that, let me say that I applaud a number of significant improvements in the New! Improved! LEED for Homes (version 4). There are other changes about which I am considerably less enthusiastic. Green Building Advisor has been kind enough to let me share both my praise and my discontent.In Part 1, I’ve offered some overall structural comments and reviewed the two categories that have seen the greatest improvements: WE and EQ. In Part 2, I will cover the remaining categories.center_img Indoor environmental quality (EQ)The ventilation credits (former EQ4 and EQ5) have been consolidated into a single prerequisite (EQp1) and a single credit (EQc1), each addressing both exhaust and supply (or balanced) ventilation. This is handy, since they reference the same (updated) ASHRAE standards.Some measures that used to be optional are now – appropriately – mandatory. Shared surfaces between living spaces and garages must now be air-sealed (was EQ10.2, now EQp3). Environmental tobacco smoke controls (formerly EQ11 in Midrise, now EQp6) are now mandatory and slightly simplified. Compartmentalization (formerly EQ12.1 in Midrise, now EQp7) now applies to both multifamily and attached single-family dwellings.A number of measures have also been made more stringent, including enhanced ventilation (was EQ5.2 and EQ4.2, now EQc1), midrise compartmentalization (was EQ12.2, now EQc4), enhanced combustion venting (was EQ2.2, now EQc5), and enhanced garage pollutant protection (was EQ10.3 and EQ10.4, now EQc6).One credit that seems a bit wacky is EQc2 (was EQ8), Contaminant Control – particularly the walk-off mats for multifamily projects. I’ll be truly shocked if any project puts in 10-foot walk-off mats to earn ½ point.And, as mentioned above, I’m not fond of the inclusion of low-emitting products in this category (EQc7), although I do understand the logic. I have no quarrel with other aspects of this new credit, though.The EQ category, because it is one of the largest, particularly suffers from segregating prerequisites from their companion credits. Were it not for this flaw, this category would definitely warrant “Most Improved.”For Part 2 of this series, click here.

Native Apps Versus Mobile Web: A Primer For Publishers

first_imgRelated Posts The mobile world can be a strange and terrifying place. Media companies are frantically devising mobile strategies, wondering what their audience might want to see on a small screen, figuring out how to engage consumers and turn that attention into revenue. And they are puzzling over a crucial choice: Whether to deliver content in an app or a Web browser.This report originally appeared in the Fall/Winter 2012 issue of SAY Magazine.There has been a debate over the past few years about whether mobile apps (for iOS or Android, although increasingly for other platforms) or browsing the Web will reign when it comes to delivering content to mobile devices. Apps seemed to have an early lead. Apple’s App Store, which made its debut in 2008, was new and exciting and democratized software distribution. Publishers were happy to get in line and give this app thing a try while trusting their old websites to function well on mobile.  Raj Aggarwal, CEO and co-founder of Boston-based Localytics, a mobile analytics and engagement platform, explains the difference between apps and the mobile Web this way: “There is a significant difference in the end users’ expectations. Mobile Web content is consumed in a browser that is often limited in functionality. As a result, content needs to be kept at a lowest common denominator, so it works across a large number of platforms.”Hmm. Lowest common denominator. Doesn’t sound like a winning formula for content creators.The Trouble With AppsHere is the catch with apps: They are expensive to develop for a variety of platforms such as iOS, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry. Apps are difficult to build and maintain, and making money on them (through subscriptions, ads and in-app purchases) is complicated. “When it comes to choosing between mobile Web and native apps, the key issues to consider are richness of experience, performance and cost of distribution. And a lot of this comes down to the kind of content you offer. For example, if your experience is primarily about displaying and interacting with online content, then mobile Web may be right for you,” says Peter Farago, VP of marketing at San Francisco-based mobile analytics platform Flurry. The Mobile Web Is No Picnic Either  A mobile Web strategy may work better for many publications. By developing for the mobile Web, a company can deliver its product to whatever device its customer happens to be using. The goal is to make it as easy as possible for the consumer to reach the content, and in that respect, the mobile Web is not fundamentally different from a desktop-based Web. But the mobile Web can be limiting, too. Many publishers want to easily deploy rich media such as videos and slideshows, location-aware advertisements and content (such as weather or traffic data). That’s not currently possible through a mobile browser — and it’s where native applications have an advantage. “As with the traditional Web, the mobile Web is good for discovery: putting your content in front of new users who don’t know about you yet,” says Giles Phillips, director of user experience at Boston-based Brightcove. “The first and primary goal of the mobile Web experience must, therefore, be to convert first-time users into engaged return users. You want to leverage your content to convert their initial impressions into an interest in having a long-term relationship with you. Making The ChoiceEngagement, Phillips says, is the primary difference in how users will interact with your brand between the mobile Web and native apps. If users navigate to your publication through a mobile browser, they are likely looking for timely, topical information. That is the nature of mobile devices, especially smartphones. People are on the go and are not consuming content in large doses as they would when sitting at a computer. Yet, if consumers become engaged and loyal to a brand, they are more likely to download (and possibly pay) for an app. “There is no choice between the mobile Web and applications: Any publisher must consider both,” says Mark Johnson, CEO of mobile content discovery application Zite. “A well delivered strategy recognizes the preferences of its readers (do they use Pinterest or Twitter?), the natural bias of its content (say, long-form vs. short-form visual.), and the natural ebb and flow of many of these platforms. The formula should be: execute, measure, refine and reload. Typically the trade-off for mobile content has been between efficiency (the ability to write once and deliver to many platforms) and beauty. Luckily, with the rise of HTML5, this tradeoff is eroding slowly, but it will take some time for it to go away entirely.” And then there’s HTML5. At its most simple level, HTML5 is a set of Web-based technologies that holds the potential of a true “write once, run everywhere” strategy. Theoretically, a publication created in HTML5 will function the same on a desktop, tablet or smartphone. That promise is not entirely yet a reality because HTML5 is still a technology in development. Yet HTML5 can still help most publishers right now. Content apps and mobile websites, by nature, are simpler to create and maintain than other application categories such as games or utilities. Content apps do not put a lot of stress on a mobile device’s computer or graphics processor and often do not need specific device capabilities such as a camera or the GPS unit. Hence, content apps are best delivered in a browser.  That doesn’t mean the mobile Web is the only option for HTML5 mobile content. An app can be developed in HTML5 and then “wrapped” with native code and deployed to the various app stores. This approach is known as a hybrid — half browser, half native — and can give publishers an easier route to developing for both mobile Web and native apps.  “HTML5 has definitely created more flexibility for publishers and has helped make responsive Web design a viable option for publishers with a blended content mix,” Phillips says.  The Hybrid Approach Several large news publications have embraced HTML5 and browser-based approaches to give consumers an app-like experience through a mobile browser. The most famous example is the Financial Times, which took its application out of the Apple App Store and created a mobile website built entirely of HTML5. Another prominent newspaper, The Boston Globe, has also embraced the mobile Web and HTML5. TheBostonGlobe.com is the paper’s answer to the mobile revolution, and it is designed to fit on any device through responsive design. “We embraced responsive Web design to build a site that would be able to adapt and evolve as more of our readers look for our content on nondesktop devices. This has been an experience that allowed us to think aggressively about how to optimize for each and every device and also has given us new opportunities to monetize mobile page views with a single buy,” says Jeff Moriarty, VP of digital products at The Boston Globe. Responsive design also addresses one of the main problems with developing for mobile devices: making content look good on a variety of screen sizes. Smartphones tend to have screens that vary from 3.5 inches to 5.3 inches while tablets range from 7 inches to 10.1 inches. It is impossible to develop an app that will look great on all of these devices. And building apps for a variety of screens drives developers crazy. The key to responsive design is that it will reformat content to adapt to the screen it is on. Even on a desktop, if a user changes the size of a browser window, responsive design will change how the content appears to optimize the user experience. It’s a powerful and useful concept that will help publishers with the deployment of content across the mobile landscape.“We have to now think about how content performs differently from the biggest screens to the smallest, how that content is organized and even how headlines are written from platform to platform,” Moriarty says. “I personally now have an Android-powered watch that displays news headlines on a 1-inch screen and a Google TV that I use on a 50-inch television from 10 feet away. How we think about those two complete opposite use cases is going to be even more and more important as screens and screen sizes continue to proliferate.”Mobile = WebSuch a rapid growth industry like mobile has not existed possibly in the history of the planet, and the dynamics are fluid. “The future is always uncertain, so it is key for publishers to stay flexible. Keeping content portable should be a major focus area,” says André T. M. Alguero, SVP of technology for Digitas. Alguero says that publishers must focus on their content strategies as a whole. The Web team should not be different from the mobile team. For all intents and purposes, the Web now is mobile and mobile is the Web. There is no difference. Being flexible and understanding the general concepts of mobile content delivery relies on understanding that basic fact. “This isn’t a challenge that is going away, and it’s not going to be easy to fix as it will take a level of experimentation and innovation that many are uncomfortable with,” Zite’s Johnson says. “In a world where publishers are struggling to figure out their business models online (display ad revenues at the major newspapers are declining alarmingly), they must adapt to the mobile world. But if they fail to evolve with the change, then the publisher landscape will likely look very different in 10 years.”The wrong choice when deciding on how to approach mobile content delivery is to try and force a traditional media strategy into the mobile environment. Publishers need to realize that the world, and even the Web itself, has changed.“Mobile has its own unique set of limitations, considerations and usage contexts.  Publishers should embrace the device for what it is, and not fight it,” Phillips says. “The biggest thing is remembering to truly reflect upon the mobile usage context and how it impacts your users’ behaviors and engagement patterns. Invest time and energy to understand your users: As the consumers of your content, they are ultimately the most important dimension of your content strategy.”For more on mobile publishing, see the Fall/Winter 2012 issue of SAY Magazine.

19 year old Adam Lovatt could become Leeds United player – Hastings

first_imgHastings United manager Chris Agutter has revealed that having Adam Lovatt become a Leeds United player will be no surprise for him as he has done incredibly well.The 19-year-old Hastings midfielder will be joining the Sky Bet Championship high-flyers for a five-day trial starting on Monday.“He’s already made a good impression because they’re interested in him and he’s got a lot of clubs in for him,” the Hastings United manager had said via Bexhill Observer.“He needs to go up there, continue to work hard, enjoy it and be himself – because it’s him that’s got himself in that great position.”“He’s ice cold, he’s not emotional at all. He won’t be flustered by it, he’ll go about his business and hopefully he’s successful.”Solskjaer reveals he plans to build his team around Pogba Manuel R. Medina – July 17, 2019 The Manchester United manager wants to end the speculation that the Frenchman is leaving the Red Devils.“I always say what’s the worst that can happen? You don’t have to say much to him. Some players you find yourself saying the same thing over and over again, but he’s one of those players you only have to tell once.”“He doesn’t need any advice. He will go up there and be fine. He’s a great lad and he’s got a very good family around him.?“I wouldn’t be surprised if he does very well and becomes a Leeds United player. He’s done incredibly well and this is just the start for him to be honest.”“It’s something that the whole club can be proud of. It’s a win-win for us. If he’s not successful, we will benefit. If he is, great for the lad and that fits the ethos of the club.”“It’s really positive times. We’re producing young local players playing good football and competing at the top of the league. Everyone’s very happy at the club and everyone’s really positive with where we’re at.”last_img read more
