Enbridge restores smaller natural gas pipeline in BC after main line blast

Enbridge restores smaller natural gas pipeline in BC after main line blast

first_imgIt damaged the company’s primary natural gas pipeline linking the Fort Nelson area to Vancouver and south to another 750,000 customers in the northwest United States.(THE CANADIAN PRESS) PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – The company that shut down its main natural gas pipeline through British Columbia following an explosion and fire Tuesday night says it has restarted a smaller line running beside the damaged pipe.Enbridge says it has received National Energy Board approval Wednesday night to restart its 76-centimetre line, which was shut down as a precaution because it is in the same path as the 91-centimetre line that ruptured and exploded near Prince George.The Calgary-based energy supplier says the line was carefully checked before permission was received to restart it at about 80 percent of normal capacity. Fortis BC, the company that depends on the Enbridge line for about 85 percent of the gas it delivers to its one million customers, says in an online notice that gas is now flowing, but customers are still asked to cut back.It says restoring flow in the smaller line is a positive step, but until the damaged larger line is repaired, a shortage of natural gas continues.In response to the call for conservation, the B.C. Institute of Technology has tweeted that heat is off on the north side of its Burnaby campus until further notice, while the University of B.C. has told researchers and other non-essential users to immediately stop using natural gas.The UBC bulletin says although gas use should still be restricted, “UBC buildings that use natural gas for heating, hot water and cooking are no longer expected to be impacted.”In an earlier news release, Enbridge said it is working with other companies to find alternate supplies of gas to meet demand.Investigators are still searching for a cause of the blast just outside Prince George.last_img read more

UN convenes meeting on role of technology and innovation for sustainable development

UN convenes meeting on role of technology and innovation for sustainable development

“Science, technology and innovation hold great potential as tools and enable to integrate the three dimensions of sustainable development,” said the Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs, Wu Hongbo.“They can be used to promote health, increase productivity, improve the efficiency of resource use, and reduce negative human impacts on the environment. They will be critical to tackling some of the major sustainable development challenges of this century. These include providing food security to a growing population, eradicating poverty and tackling climate change.”Attended by policymakers, key stakeholders and UN system representatives, the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) Integration Meeting seeks to follow-up on the commitments made by world leaders at the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) in June last year. That historic summit recognized ECOSOC’s role in achieving a balanced integration of the three dimensions of sustainable development, and adopted an outcome document, The Future We Want. Following the Conference, ECOSOC held a Ministerial meeting in September, where participants discussed how to strengthen the multilateral system for sustainable development.Mr. Wu underlined that ensuring food security and universal access to sustainable energy are “complex challenges” that “must be addressed in an integrated way.” “Some of the technological solutions are simple, as with clean cook stoves. However, social and economic barriers to their broader diffusion can be complex,” he said. “Innovation extends beyond developing hardware, to finding solutions, to the broad social acceptance and economic affordability of improved technologies.In his opening remarks, Deputy-Secretary General Jan Eliasson stressed the importance of Council in promoting balanced integration of different dimensions to sustainable development in the UN system, and called for cooperation to achieve not just sustainable development objectives but also the anti-poverty targets known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).Agreed on by world leaders at a UN summit in 2000, the eight MDGs set specific targets on poverty alleviation, education, gender equality, child and maternal health, environmental stability, HIV/AIDS reduction, and the creation of a ‘Global Partnership for Development – all by a deadline of 2015.“The world is counting on the UN to deliver, to be a catalytic force and to set the direction for the road ahead,” he said. “This means that we have to work with the Millennium Development Goals not yet achieved and at the same time, look beyond 2015 and the new sustainable development agenda.”ECOSOC President Néstor Osorio said the meeting would identify potential policy changes, facilitate a multi-stakeholder dialogue, develop a clear understanding of how science, technology and innovation relates to sustainable development, and identify new policies at local, national and international levels. read more

President and Tánaiste express sadness at death of Hugo Chavez

first_imgPRESIDENT MICHAEL D Higgins has led tributes to the Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez who died yesterday following a two-year battle with cancer.The 58-year-old passed yesterday, ending 14 years of his rule with an outpouring of grief on the streets of Caracas as seven days of national mourning for the leftist leader were declared in the country.Higgins said that he was “very sorry” to hear of the death of the divisive and larger-than-life president following his long illness, praising some of his achievements in office.“President Chavez achieved a great deal during his term in office, particularly in the area of social development and poverty reduction,” Higgins said.“I extend my sincere condolences to the family of President Chavez on their great loss. My thoughts and best wishes are also with the people of Venezuela as they come to terms with this sad news.”Higgins’ former Labour Party colleague and Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore also issued a statement early this morning saying that he learned with “sadness” of the death of Chavez.Gilmore described Chavez as “an important figure on the international stage, as well as in his own country, and I would like to extend my sincere condolences to his family and to the people of Venezuela on his passing.”From the opposition benches, Sinn Féin president Gerry Adams expressed his sadness at the death of the long-time president saying that he had worked “tirelessly” to improve the lives of Venezuelan citizens.“He dedicated himself to building a new and radical society in Venezuela,” Adams said.“His progressive social and economic changes took millions out of poverty. He extended free health care and education for all citizens and his re-election last year with a huge majority was testimony to his vision.”Adams said that the “energetic and enthusiastic leader” will be “greatly missed.”International reactionInternationally reaction was divided between those who praised the work of Chavez to those who merely noted his death and a “challenging” time for Venezuela as President Barack Obama put it.“The United States reaffirms its support for the Venezuelan people and its interest in developing a constructive relationship with the Venezuelan government,” Obama said in short statement last night.The secretary general of the United Nations, Bank Ki-moon said: “President Chavez spoke to the challenges and aspirations of the most vulnerable Venezuelans.”British Foreign Secretary William Hague said he was “saddened” by the death of Chavez who he said had left a “lasting impression” on the people of the Latin American nations.Some of Chavez’s political allies in the region paid tribute to the late leader.

Angry Birds Star Wars flings into the Death Star November 8

Angry Birds Star Wars flings into the Death Star November 8

first_imgIf you thought the Angry Birds franchise was dead just because Rovio had released Bad Piggies you were wrong. LucasArts and Rovio have teamed up to bring an Angry Birds Star Wars game to iOS and Android on November 8.The game is traditional Angry Birds gameplay mixed with Angry Birds Space, Star Wars characters and locations, and promises to be much more than just regular Angry Birds dressed as Star Wars characters. No actual gameplay has been shown just yet, but expect to be flinging birds across your favorite planets including Hoth, Tatooine, and maybe there will be a boss level where you’ll have to fling birds into a pig-shaped Death Star.This partnership isn’t just good for one new game, though. In true LucasArts style there’s a whole lot of merchandise also launching before Angry Birds Star Wars comes out. So far there’s a Jenga game which involves flinging rebel birds from their X-wing-mounted catapults into a piggie Death Star, an At-At Attack Battle Game so you can build an At-At and then fling yet more rebel birds into it, and a figure pack which will include Chewbacca, Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, and R2-D2. The boxes are modeled on the 1980’s collectible Kenner packs (remember those?) to give a nostalgic feel.It may be a cheap way for both Rovio and LucasArts to make money, but that merchandise will be too much to resist for both Star Wars and Angry Birds fans alike. We can only hope the actual game will include some hilarious clips from the film done Angry Birds style, I think that would really make for a good crossover.via PocketGamerlast_img read more

MovieBob Reviews IT COMES AT NIGHT

MovieBob Reviews IT COMES AT NIGHT

first_img MovieBob Reviews: ‘Shadow’MovieBob Reviews: ‘The Curse of La Llorona’ Is It Comes At Night Good?Yes – though it may not be what many people are expecting.What does that mean?It looks like (and is being promoted as) as post-apocalyptic thriller in the vein of The Walking Dead or The Last of Us. But it’s actually more of a psychological horror film that at first seems to be a well-made but otherwise boilerplate entry in that genre which pretty quickly reveals itself as something like a deliberate deconstruction of the form. a movie about survivalists (post-apocalyptic or otherwise) where the overriding theme is “You’re probably doomed no matter how well you prepare” and may even be said to go as far as “The guys most obsessed with control and order might be the people you should be most afraid of in that situation.”What Happens?The story takes place an unspecified amount of time into the future where an unnamed, barely-understood viral plague (it appears to be airborne, turns your eyes black and requires the afflicted to be immediately killed and burned) looks to have knocked modern U.S. civilization back down to the frontier/pioneer days. Our main characters are a family consisting of Carmen Ejogo (the mom), Kelvin Harrison Jr (the teenaged son) and Joel Edgerton as the requisite hard-headed no-nonsense micromanaging beardo dad figure who is the designated hero of basically every damn movie like this. Their mostly orderly lives are upended when they opt to take in and work together with another family consisting of a younger couple and their toddler son; which at first seems like a smart arrangement but slowly begins to deteriorate into increasingly uneasy mistrust.Is that really all?Without indulging in spoilers… yes, that’s basically it. It’s a “social order gradually breaking down in isolation” story where the inciting incident is The Apocalypse, but nothing flashy or particularly “new” is happening apart from the conceit of seeing what happens when two standard-issue No-Nonsense Post-Apocalyptic Survival Dads have to go beard-to-beard over increasingly contentious tough decisions.So why does the title make it sound like a monster movie?Because it’s sort of a “deconstruction” of the genre; i.e. it’s using the familiar visuals and filmmaking “language” from post-apocalyptic zombie/monster/killer to tell an otherwise more grounded story. Again, without spoiling: The characters are essentially using the day-to-day chores of survival and preparation not just to stay alive but as psychological distraction – occupying their minds with tasks and schedules, so they don’t go mad from the omnipresent knowledge that they’re living through the End of The World. A plot point is that several of them, despite this, have trouble with insomnia and sleepwalking. It eventually becomes clear that what ‘Comes at Night’ refers not to an entity but to the nightmares, paranoia and dark thoughts that plague them in the hours when there’s nothing else to think about. The horror of their situation becomes more oppressive… and more prone to instigating disruptive potentially tragic actions.Any flaws?It’s pretty short, which is typically a welcome change of pace these days. But once you’ve grasped the basic arc of what’s going on, the characters apart from the teenaged son and the two dads don’t really have much time to establish character depth to hold full interest outside of waiting for the impending poor decision making to rear its head. The lack of almost any “showy” genre elements will probably make it feel slight to some, and the overall effect is more like a slightly longer episode of an anthology TV series like Tales From The Crypt or The Twilight Zone than something more explicitly “cinematic.Is it worth seeing?If you like slow-burning psychological horror that’s built around inevitability rather than twists or jump-scares, yes – though don’t expect anything particularly thrilling (and certainly not uplifting: This is about as bleak as these things get.)
