News story: Government announcement to end UK’s contribution to climate change
I’m delighted to see the Prime Minister set a legal target for the UK to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050. This is not only the right thing to tackle the climate emergency for future generations but a huge opportunity to increase our energy efficiency, improve our resilience and deliver a greener, healthier society. We know that investing in zero carbon solutions is good for growth – boosting jobs and the economy – and it is cheaper for business, organisations and government to tackle climate change now than to manage its impacts in the future. When I launched a consultation on the Environment Agency’s Flood and Coastal Strategy up to 2100, a few weeks ago, I talked about the importance of building a nation of climate champions – people aware of the risks of the climate emergency and empowered to take positive action to help their communities become more resilient. We know how passionate young people are across the country about tackling complacency in the face of catastrophe and taking action now to safeguard their environment for the future. So it’s encouraging to see the Government has established a Youth Steering Group which will advise them and review progress against their commitments. Our individual actions count too, no matter how small – from the amount of water we use at home to the products we recycle and reuse. We have no option but to do this and we all have a part to play. The Environment Agency is already working to tackle the climate emergency. Today’s announcement gives a powerful boost to all our prospects for the future and a common goal to achieve together.

Eskom to tap into US bond market
Even though the National Energy Regulator granted Eskom a tariff increase of 24.8% earlier this year, Dames said the tariffs were insufficient to build up reserves to fund the necessary capital expansion to meet the projected growth of the South African economy. “To this end, we have developed a cash flow, income statements and balance sheet forecast that considers the implication of the build programme and capacity additions to the business over the next seven years,” he said. Dames said it was a relief that the government, as a major shareholder, was also embarking on plans to address the challenges faced by the country’s energy sector. Speaking to journalists in Johannesburg on Monday, Eskom CEO Brian Dames said that while it was expected to take substantial efforts from all stakeholders to overcome the country’s rapidly growing electricity demands, Eskom needed to take a leading role to prevent another gloomy picture of blackouts in the country. “The next seven years will be very tight beginning next year, and this will mean we have to maintain and maximise the efficiency of our existing assets as well as ensuring delivery of build programme,” Dames said. Tariff increases ‘not enough’ Dames said that the sustainability of Eskom, as well as national security of electricity supply over the next seven years, depended on effective management of the funding supply for the current and future build programme. The company has already received loans of R21-billion from the African Development Bank and R28-billion from the World Bank to fund the construction of Medupi, but still needs more funds to ensure that all three power stations are up and running by 2017. South African state company Eskom is to approach the US bond market in a bid to raise funds for its capital expansion programme, which includes two coal-fired base-load power stations – Medupi and Kusile – and the Ingula Pumped Storage Scheme. 26 October 2010 Medupi, situated outside Lephalale in the Limpopo province, is expected to be up and running by the end of 2012, while operations at Kusile, being built outside Delmas in Mpumalanga province, may follow four years later. Ingula, currently under construction on the border of the Free State and KwaZulu-Natal provinces, will be fully operational in 2014. This after President Jacob Zuma said on Sunday that the government would spend over R800-billion (including R385-billion for Eskom expansion) on energy infrastructure over the next few years.

Vultures need our help

This is given to an up-and-coming conservationist who has already made an impact in his or her chosen field, and the winner and runners-up receive grants to help them continue with their work. Wolter is up against four other nominees, two from Kenya and two from Madagascar.She established VulPro near Hartbeespoort, about 35km west of Pretoria, in 2007 after managing the vulture unit at the Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre (formerly known as De Wildt), located in the same area, for two years. VulPro doesn’t just protect and rehabilitate vultures for eventual release back into the skies, but has a strong educational component as well. It hosts groups of schoolchildren and also visits schools with a live bird, to allow the children and their teachers to get up close with the vulture and learn more about the importance of protecting the species.VulPro conducts an annual census of breeding pairs in the area, titled the Magaliesberg Risk Assessment.Now Wolter is working with the Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) and the Limpopo operating unit of national power supplier Eskom on a vulture-tracking project, which will establish where they like to gather and will provide information that will make it easier to keep the birds and power lines apart, or make the lines safe.The Limpopo Vulture Project was conceived by EWT senior field officer Constant Hoogstad, who approached Eskom with the idea. He wanted to use the data thus gathered for his thesis. There are two EWT units involved, the Birds of Prey Programme and the Wildlife and Energy Programme, which explores the dangers posed to birds by communications and power infrastructure.Through GSM devices attached to the birds, the team will be able to track their movements and establish their territory range, and learn where the different species congregate. Eskom will use this information to plan the installation of new power lines, and also to investigate the link between vulture movements and line faults in the province.“The birds roost on power lines and they die when they collide with a structure in flight, or create a short on the line and get electrocuted,” Wolter explains. “It’s one of their biggest threats. The aim of this project is to identify the vulture hotspots and then take steps to mitigate the deaths.”Eskom can then be proactive and make Limpopo lines safe by fitting bird guards, says Wolter, which stops the birds coming into contact with critical areas on towers, without harming them, and will prevent electrocution. “Eskom will also consider using bird-friendly structures when planning new developments.”She emphasises that it’s completely up to the power utility to use the data constructively and to implement any vulture-saving measures. “They must be willing to follow up on the research, and ensure the mitigation is done.” However, since Eskom has already installed bird guards on power lines in KwaZulu-Natal, resulting in an improvement in service quality and a reduction in power outages, it is certain to do the same in Limpopo.Keeping an eye on the restaurantHoogstad says that one of South Africa’s most active vulture restaurants is located close to the provincial capital Polokwane, on Mockford Farm, a prominent pork producing facility. A vulture restaurant is a place where fresh, untainted food is provided regularly for the birds, and this particular vulture restaurant attracts a variety of species.The team will focus on two vulture restaurant sites for capture and tagging – they are Mockford, and the well-known Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre just outside Hoedspruit.Once the birds are fitted with the tracking devices, the team will monitor their behaviour in relation to the site of their restaurant – after a year, the restaurant will be moved to a distant location and the birds will be tracked to see if their movement changes accordingly. If it does, this data will help the team to establish how long it takes for vultures to adapt to the new situation, and whether moving a vulture restaurant is a practical answer to keeping the birds away from power lines and wind farms.Vultures need our helpContrary to popular myth, the vulture is not evil, dirty, diseased or clairvoyant. It plays an important role in the ecological cycle by disposing of carcasses, thus preventing the build-up of large numbers of flies around the remains, and minimising the spread of diseases such as anthrax. The vulture is an indicator of the overall health of the ecosystem, as it will suffer if something is out of balance.Vultures are also intelligent and sociable birds, and form lifelong breeding pairs that share parental responsibilities, with both partners incubating, feeding and caring for their chicks.South Africa is home to nine vulture species including the lappet-faced (Torgos tracheliotus), bearded (Gypaetus barbatus) and white-headed (Trigonoceps occipitalis) vultures – however, the only one endemic to the region is the Cape vulture (Gyps coprotheres), around 10kg in weight when mature, with a magnificent 2.5m wingspan. Like the other eight, this is one of the so-called Old World vultures, found in Africa, Asia and Europe, and belonging to a different family from the birds found in the Americas.It’s listed as vulnerable on the Red List of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and, says the organisation, is likely to keep declining unless conservation efforts continue and are successful. The IUCN lists the population level about 8 000 to 10 000 individuals (2006 figures), but shrinking.“There are 800 breeding pairs in the Blouberg Nature Reserve and 550 to 600 on Kransberg in Marakele National Park,” says Wolter, referring to the world’s two largest colonies. “The province is a stronghold for vultures.”Other threats to their existence include deliberate or accidental poisoning, often because they eat carcasses poisoned by farmers to kill jackals and leopards, which prey on flocks and herds; urbanisation leading to habitat loss; killings for muthi, or traditional medicine; a decrease in the availability of food; and veterinary drugs such as the anti-inflammatory ketoprofen, which is lethal to vultures.The EWT’s Birds of Prey Programme and its partners celebrate International Vulture Awareness Day in early September every year. In addition, the Gauteng Department of Agriculture Conservation and Environment has made the Cape vulture one of its priority bird species, along with the blue crane, martial eagle, secretary bird and others.A group of vultures in flight is called a kettle, while a group that is feeding is called a wake. The collective nouns committee, volt, and venue refer to vultures resting in trees.
Queensland Claim Australian Deaf Games Titles
The Mixed Touch Football final kicked off on Wednesday morning with the Queensland team taking on the ACT, battling it out for the Gold. Queensland won in a marvellous victory, 12-4. Part of the winning side was 13-year-old Jamie Howell, a rising young Touch Football star, earning the esteemed of ‘Player of the Match’ and now taking home her first ever ADG Gold, along with the match ball. “It was very exciting! I have never done anything like this before, I really enjoyed it!” Jamie said. A second fantastic performance was put on by the Queenslanders on Wednesday afternoon as they took on Fiji to once again battle it out for the Gold in the Men’s division. Fiji entertained the spectators with a ceremonial dance to open the game, but Queensland fought back and won 15-2. Tuan Chiem confirmed his place as the best deaf player in Australia when he was awarded ‘Player of the Match’ in the Men’s division.Touch Football sports convenor and Touch Football Australia representative, David Brady, had a chat to us about the game and his involvement with the sport over the years. “It’s a game that anyone can play at any age,” he said. Working alongside the volunteers, referees and sports governing bodies, Brady tells of the success in introducing Touch Football for the first time to the Deaf Games. “This week has been fantastic…everyone in the Touch Football really came together as a community. It was really pleasing to see everyone playing together, having a good time and enjoying themselves.”Thank you to Deaf Sports Australia for providing the article content.
Views of Trumps trade adviser carry the day at White House
WASHINGTON – In the squabbling Trump White House, no insider is ever above rebuke and no one blacklisted beyond redemption. Trade adviser Peter Navarro, once barred from sending private emails and spotted skulking in West Wing hallways, has emerged from the chaos ascendant.With his chief ideological rival, Gary Cohn, now headed for the exit, Navarro and his protectionist trade policies are taking centre stage as President Donald Trump prepares to impose the steep tariffs on steel and aluminum imports that Navarro has long championed.Navarro, a 68-year-old former economics professor whose ideas were once considered well outside the mainstream, joined the Trump campaign in 2016 after one of his books on China happened to catch the eye of Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner during an internet search.From the presidential campaign, Navarro made the leap to the new administration to head a new White House National Trade Council. But he was quickly sidelined by chief of staff John Kelly and closely managed by former staff secretary Rob Porter.As alliances shifted and staffers departed, though, Navarro made his move, encouraging Trump to embrace a plan that many economists, lawmakers and White House aides warn could lead to a trade war and imperil U.S. economic gains. Trump signed a pair of proclamations Thursday imposing tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum.The president and the combative Navarro share the same hard-line views on trade that were a centerpiece of Trump’s campaign. For decades, both men have accused China of unfair trade practices that have displaced American workers and hobbled the U.S. manufacturing base.“Peter speaks the same language as Trump does on these issues,” said Stephen Moore, a former Trump campaign adviser who is now a visiting fellow at The Heritage Foundation. “He and Trump agree on an America First policy when it comes to trade and other issues, so he has emerged as a policy force in this administration.”Like Stephen Miller on immigration, Navarro has now become the face of Trump’s trade plan. In interviews since Trump’s surprise promise to impose the sweeping tariffs, Navarro has forcefully defended his boss and minimized any potential negative impact on the U.S.“There’s negligible-to-nothing effects,” he said dismissively on CBS, later accusing the media of hyping prospects of a trade war.Navarro had limited contact with Trump world until early in the campaign, when Kushner was drawn to his book, “Death by China,” while researching China policy. Kushner reached out and Navarro quickly became an economic adviser.Despite his credentials as a Harvard Ph.D. and former professor at the University of California, Irvine, Navarro was less an academic focused on research than a master of controversy writing books such as “The Coming China Wars.” He has professed views that go further even than academic peers who see China’s emergence in the global economy as hurting many U.S. workers.“Trump has unconventional views on many issues. And here was an economist of some acclaim who was validating those positions,” Moore said.Scott Paul, president of the Alliance for American Manufacturing, which represents steel makers, has known Navarro for more than a decade. He described Navarro as “someone who certainly speaks his mind and is not afraid to present ideas and data that are contrarian. And I think way more often than not, he makes a very persuasive case.”Persuasive to like-minded Trump, perhaps, but not to many free-trade-loving Republicans.“I think he’s wrong on a lot of things,” said Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch of Utah, who opposes the tariffs.Under Trump’s plan, Canada and Mexico could be exempted from the tariffs based on the outcome of talks to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement, a move that could soften the tariff blow.But Navarro is still riding high.He’s been telling friends that he’s seeking Cohn’s National Economic Council director title, according to a person close to the White House who has spoken to Navarro — a move that could spark an exodus of Cohn allies, another person familiar with the thinking of other White House officials said.Early in Trump’s term, Navarro at first was outmanoeuvred by Cohn, the Goldman Sachs president-turned-Trump economic adviser.Cohn-Navarro discussions sometimes turned into shouting matches, occasionally in front of Trump.Navarro, excluded from Trump’s trip to Asia last fall, was sometimes seen walking the West Wing halls at night. In an especially personal blow, he was required to copy in Cohn on all his emails after being accused of trying to circumvent West Wing processes, according to two people familiar with the policy. They spoke only on condition of anonymity to discuss internal administration roles.The White House regimen included a weekly trade policy meeting in the Roosevelt Room where aides with opposing views could talk through ideas to ensure recommendations brought to the president were fully vetted and legally sound. When Porter left, said one of the people, the process broke down and Navarro and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross made their move.Asked on Fox whether he’d conducted “guerrilla warfare,” sneaking around the West Wing and trying to making an end-run around staffers, Navarro dismissed the narrative as a “cheap shot” spread by “all sorts of malicious” leakers.Others said Navarro had bided his time, keeping his head down, persistently building his case. He waited as tariff decision deadlines set by Ross ticked closer, and the White House turned its attention back to trade after deciding to table the divisive issue while it worked on health care and taxes.“For a long time, there were a lot of long knives out to get him,” said Paul, who served as a member of the White House Manufacturing Jobs Initiative before resigning last summer.In the end though, said Paul, “I think it’s pretty clear that the president is siding with the economic nationalists.”___Associated Press writers Josh Boak, Catherine Lucey, Zeke Miller and Alan Fram contributed to this report.___Follow Colvin on Twitter at https://twitter.com/colvinj.
LeBron Kyrie And Draymond All Made History In The Cavs Win
2012Heat @ Thunder228 Missing from this picture: the rest of the Cavs. Kevin Love, the team’s purported third banana, scored just 2 points and grabbed three rebounds, alongside four fouls and two turnovers. As a team, the Cavs had 16 turnovers and 22 fouls. That’s why it took both a historic suspension and a historic two-man performance for Cleveland to upset the Warriors and bring the series back to Ohio.Unfortunately for the Cavs, Green won’t be watching from next door in Game 6. And although LeBron and Co. will be at home, where Elo considers them 59 percent favorites to force a climactic Game 7, Cleveland was also the site of a late-game collapse and a double-digit defeat for the host team in Game 4.

Sarri Ive reached the top by joining Chelsea
Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri revealed how it dawned on him that he has reached the top of football following an exchange with Liverpool counterpart Jurgen KloppFollowing his summer arrival from Napoli, Sarri has enjoyed a record-breaking start at Chelsea this season.The Blues are currently just four points adrift from Premier League leaders Manchester City and unbeaten after 12 games.Now Sarri has described a moment he shared with Klopp on the touchline back in September, where Chelsea had a double-header against Liverpool.“At one point I turned to him [Klopp] and saw that he was smiling,” Sarri told La Gazzetta dello Sport.“I approached and asked him why.“He told me ‘I’m having a good time, you?’ ‘Me too,’ I replied.“Here, when you live these situations, you realise that you have reached the top.”Daniel Farke, From mid-table in the Championship to the Premier League Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Norwich City manager, Daniel Farke, has taken his team from the middle of the table in the English Championship to play with the big boys in the Premier League.Klopp is the coach that Sarri respects most in the Premier League due to their shared philosophical point of views.“I feel closer to Klopp from a philosophical point of view,” said Sarri. “The exchange of words between us seems to me to be exemplary.”Although the Italian also holds Manchester United’s Jose Mourinho and Arsenal’s Unai Emery in a high regard.“Mourinho is a man of extraordinary human qualities,” added Sarri.“He made an excellent impression on the day of the Stamford Bridge match when the incident involving one of my assistants occurred.“On a professional level, there is little to say: he has won everything and everywhere.“Emery is a scholar and an excellent professional. The offensive organisation of his football is of the highest level.”Chelsea will travel to Tottenham this Saturday in a Premier League fixture.
