UK power supply unlikely to meet demand next winter warns bank

first_img UK power supply unlikely to meet demand next winter warns bank whatsapp Express KCS BRITAIN is at risk of severe power shortages next winter, with available generation unlikely to meet demand.The UK will have only 53 gigawatts (GW) of dispatchable generation available to meet forecast peak demand of around 56 GW in winter 2016/2017, according to research from investment bank Jefferies.“This would be the first time in living memory that the UK could not cover peak demand with dispatchable generation,” Jefferies analysts said in a note published earlier this month.The bank’s concerns followed the announcement that Eggborough Power may close its 2,000 megawatt coal-fired power station in March next year, due to economic conditions and a lack of government support.Jefferies noted that the “rapid closure of the coal fleet” has so far had no impact on forward power prices, and said “the growing influence of renewables, National Grid’s emergency capacity market measures, and weak demand may explain this”.However, the bank also said that, with the closure of the coal fleet accelerating, and reserve margins negative, “a price shock following a security of supply event is clearly possible at some point”.

Retired Police Officers Urged to Pass on Knowledge

first_imgRelatedRetired Police Officers Urged to Pass on Knowledge Retired Police Officers Urged to Pass on Knowledge UncategorizedJune 4, 2007 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Minister of National Security, Dr. Peter Phillips has urged retired police officers to become involved in programmes in which they can transmit their knowledge to persons who are entering the force.“As we re-organize the training efforts out at Twickenham Park in the police academy, and in the officer training that is being strengthened, there is opportunity for you to transmit your valuable knowledge to those who are now entering into the ranks of service, that you have passed through before,” Dr. Phillips said.He was speaking at the Police Officers’ Association and the Police Cooperative Credit Union’s special luncheon for retired gazetted police officers on Thursday (May 31) at the Knutsford Court Hotel in Kingston.The National Security Minister pointed out that despite the challenges that the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) faces in fighting organised crime, surveys have indicated that Jamaicans hold police officers in high esteem and called on the retired officers to assist the younger ones to sustain this respect.“Through your efforts, the JCF has been able to sustain a very good reputation and the respect of the Jamaican people. Indeed, we have to look to you to help sustain that reputation and indeed help sustain the quality of the JCF,” he noted.Dr. Phillips further encouraged the retired officers to pass on the values that they have acquired from the police force, to younger members of the society, especially young men. “In community life generally, the values that you have acquired can be of tremendous benefit, particularly to young males, who are in great need of the kinds of values and attitudes of national service, of integrity, of hard work, of thrift and dedication and love of country, which so many of you exemplify,” he stated.He also commended the Police Officers’ Association and the Police Cooperative Credit Union for hosting the luncheon in honour of retired gazetted officers, noting that the contribution that they have made to their country should always be celebrated.

Continental Hospitals launches training drive in Hyderabad

first_img Phoenix Business Consulting invests in telehealth platform Healpha Continental Hospitals launches training drive in Hyderabad Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals releases first “Comprehensive Textbook of COVID-19” A bike rally with the Hyderabad Benelli Owners Group was organised to raise emergency awarenessContinental Hospitals launched the ‘I am Emergency Ready’ emergency drive to raise awareness on emergency preparedness amongst the common people. The objective of the initiative is to mitigate risk and minimise loss during medical emergencies.At the outset, the hospital acknowledged the critical support that the ER doctors, nurses & paramedics offer to manage medical emergencies on a daily basis.The launch that took place at Continental Hospitals in Gachibowli, Hyderabad with popular Telugu actors Priyadarshi Pullikonda & Krishnaswamy Srikanth Iyengar in attendance. The event also saw attendance from the corporate sector with Praveen Upadhya, Director of Facilities, Virtusa Polaris; Kundan Prakash, Director, Microsoft; Mayank Bhargava, AVP, ICICI Lombard and Satyanarayana Mathula, Chairman, Facility Managers Council.To make India Emergency Ready, the hospital seeks to train the general public on Bystander Life Support which will equip them to offer immediate care to anyone facing a medical emergency and keep the patient stable until professional medical help arrives.The BLS training will be conducted for both individuals as well as corporates; and will also include everyday people like auto drivers, roadside vendors, school students and teachers, parents, social workers, security guards amongst others. The trainees will receive certification and an emergency toolkit at the successful completion of training.Continental Hospitals CEO Faisal Siddiqui said, “The ‘I am Emergency Ready’ drive is one such initiative that we are proud to present. In times of medical emergencies, bystanders are often unable to do anything to stabilise the patient before professional help arrive. This results in the loss of critical minutes that leads to the worsening of the patient’s condition, at times even irreversibly. In trauma cases it is imperative for a person to be ready for a spontaneous intervention and through this initiative we aim to raise both awareness and preparedness required to identify and manage common medical emergencies, resulting in patients being stabilised before transportation to the nearest hospital.”As part of the initiative, the hospital also instituted the ‘Good Samaritan Award,’ a platform to recognize, reward and appreciate those Good Samaritans who have helped victims in case of a medical emergency. The Hyderabad Benelli Owners Group pledged their support to this campaign by getting together their riders for this good cause. A group of 20 Benelli riders along with the hospital doctors and staff took part in a bike rally that was organised from the hospital to Cyber Towers, Madhapur to raise awareness about the importance of bystanders life support training and to stress on the importance of being emergency ready.

Richmond Vale to Richmond Gap Road in St. Thomas to be Rehabilitated

first_imgRichmond Vale to Richmond Gap Road in St. Thomas to be Rehabilitated Local GovernmentJuly 4, 2013Written by: Elaine Hartman Record and Tashika McCarthy RelatedContribution to the Annual Sectoral Debate by the Hon. Noel Arscott, M.P. RelatedJPs Encouraged to Get Involved in Restorative Justice FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Some 3,000 residents are to benefit from the rehabilitation of approximately two kilometres of roadway from Richmond Vale to Richmond Gap in St. Thomas. Work on the road is expected to commence this month and end in December 2013. A contract between community sponsors and the Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF) was signed on July 3, at the Richmond Gap Church of God, in the parish.The project will be implemented by two techniques – a traditional component and a community-based contracting methodology. Under the traditional component, the community will be mobilised to manage a contract for a portion of the road. Work will involve the installation of culverts, road base, and road surfacing at a cost of some $26.9 million. Of that amount, the JSIF will donate $23.8 million, while the community will contribute $3.1 million.Under the community-based model, V drains, U drains and Gabion walls will be constructed, with the JSIF providing $8.46 million and the community, $1.17 million. Speaking at the ceremony, JSIF’s General Manager of Administration, Human Resources and Communication, Rhonda Lumsden-Lue, said the community of Richmond is heavily dependent on agriculture and has the potential for diversifying some 120 hectares of agricultural production, if the road and water problems are addressed.“The Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA) reports that a consistent water supply and good road network are critical for maximizing economic viability of farming activities,” she pointed out.She noted that the poor condition of the roads has contributed to the spoilage of valuable produce, increased travel time for persons employed outside the community and limited the ability of emergency vehicles to access the community.“In fulfilling its mandate, the JSIF seeks to facilitate the empowerment of communities. Notably, for over 20 years, the Richmond Gap Benevolent Society has been trying its best to attract funding for the road. We have not ignored these efforts. Despite the many challenges over the period, our interventions have been aimed at reaching this single goal,” Mrs. Lumsden-Lue said.Contact: Elaine Hartman Record and Tashika McCarthycenter_img RelatedJustices Of The Peace Urged To Assist Efforts to Eliminate Human Trafficking Advertisementslast_img read more

WhatsApp hits pause on sharing user data in Europe

first_img FacebookWhatsApp WhatsApp temporarily stopped sharing data of European users with Facebook, according to media reports, just a week after doing the same in the UK on the request of the Information Commission.Following conversations with European officials, WhatsApp will only use data needed for administrative purposes such as fighting spam, giving regulators a chance to work out all their concerns and give Facebook time to address them.“We hope to continue our detailed conversations with the UK Information Commissioner’s Office and other data protection officials, and we remain open to working collaboratively to address their questions,” the Financial Times quoted Facebook as saying.The report added that the suspension was confirmed by the Irish Data Protection Commissioner’s office, which is Facebook’s primary regulator (its European headquarters is located in Ireland).The commissioner’s office said it would take action after looking into the “quality of the notice and information delivered to users of the WhatsApp service prior to their making a choice to either continue using WhatsApp or to cancel their account”.Ever since the messaging app maker said it was going to give its parent company user information to show more relevant ads and offer better friend suggestions, it has come under fire from several countries and organisations, including watchdogs in Europe and the FTC in the US.In October, European data protection group G29 told WhatsApp to pause its sharing of user data as the policy is investigated and “appropriate legal protections can be assured”.In September, the Hamburg’s Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom in Germany also blocked Facebook from collecting data.

Shutdown of FAA Possible in House-Senate Clash

first_imgWASHINGTON – A quarrel between the House and Senate over union organizing by airline and railroad workers could lead to a shutdown of the Federal Aviation Administration.The FAA’s operating authority expires on Friday. The agency has operated under a series of 20 short-term extensions since Sept. 30, 2007, because lawmakers have been unable to agree on a long-term funding bill.The FAA’s 15,500 air traffic controllers are essential employees and would continue to work even if the agency’s operating authority were to expire, Republican lawmakers told the House Rules Committee on Tuesday.FAA spokeswoman Laura Brown declined to comment on the agency’s plans in case its operating authority expires.However, former FAA Administrator Marion Blakey said it’s likely that other workers would face furloughs. The agency employs about 32,000 workers in addition to controllers. The extent of the furloughs would depend in part on how much cash is available in the federal trust fund for aviation programs and how long the shutdown goes on, she said.In the event of a shutdown, airlines would no longer have to collect ticket taxes, which average about $60 per round-trip ticket, aviation industry officials said.The root of the dispute is a labor provision in a long-term FAA funding bill passed by the House in April. The Republican-sponsored provision would make it more difficult for airline and railroad workers to unionize by overturning a National Mediation Board rule approved last year. It allows employees in those industries to form a union by a simple majority of those voting. Under the old rule, workers who didn’t vote were treated as “no” votes.Senate Democrats, who passed their own long-term FAA funding bill in February without the labor provision, have insisted that the labor issue be removed from any final bill.With negotiations at a stalemate, the chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Rep. John Mica, R-Fla., introduced a bill last week to extend the FAA’s operating authority for the 21st time. Previous extensions had been routine, but this time Mica added a provision eliminating federal subsidies for airline service to 13 rural airports.One of the airports is in Ely, Nev., home state of Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid. Another is in Morgantown, W.Va., which is in the home state of Sen. Jay Rockefeller, chairman of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, which has primary jurisdiction over FAA legislation. A third is in Glendive, Mont., the home state of Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, who has jurisdiction over the aviation tax portions of the bill.Total cost savings would be about $8.5 million, lawmakers said.In a letter delivered to Mica late Tuesday, Rockefeller accused the GOP lawmaker of inserting the airport provision into the extension bill in retaliation for senators’ refusal to accept the labor provision.“Your attempt to punish the Senate by hurting small-community air service has backfired. This language only guarantees that the Senate will reject the FAA extension,” Rockefeller said. Unless the House lawmakers agree to remove the airport language, they risk a shutdown of the FAA, he said.Mica acknowledged that he inserted the airport language into the extension bill partly as a means to “send the Senate a message that we want this finally resolved.”The long-term funding bill approved by the Senate in February included a provision ending subsidized air service for 10 of the 13 airports that would be affected by the provision in the House extension bill. Mica said he “tweaked” that language to include three more airports — in Nevada, Montana and New Mexico — because their subsidies amount to more than $1,000 per ticket.The blame for the delay belongs to Reid, who has been unwilling to negotiate on the labor issue, Mica said.“We can resolve this in a one-hour conference,” he said. “The time to stop messing around is now.” Email Stay Connected with the Daily Roundup.
