Annan calls on civic groups to keep pressing for antipoverty measures

As the eleventh United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) opened today in São Paulo, Brazil, Secretary-General Kofi Annan called on civic groups attending a parallel gathering to maintain pressure on governments to keep their global anti-poverty promises.“Non-governmental organizations, church groups, labour unions and others have been working relentlessly to make sure that international trade and globalization work for the poor, not against them,” Mr. Annan told the Civil Society Forum. He hailed participants for “extracting” commitments from governments to meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) set at a UN summit in 2000.Those targets, to be met by 2015, include halving the number of poor and hungry people, achieving educational parity for boys and girls and fighting the HIV/AIDS epidemic.“I know that some groups have said they should really be called the ‘minimum’ development goals,” he observed. While acknowledging that the targets are not utopian, he said they were achievable given adequate political will. ”But we need to take action now,” he said, stressing the role of local public mobilization in influencing national leaders. “What would really make a difference is if, at the local level, the goals achieve a critical mass of support and even become ‘vote-getters.’” “You can and must help make that happen,” he urged. “Liberated by the advance of democracy, linked by shared interests and by the Internet, increasingly effective at using your consumer and voting power, you have the weight to tip the balance. So please, keep up the pressure!” read more

Climate Change head says nuclear demand not going away anytime soon –

first_imgA pro-nuclear advocate says the serious problems faced by the tsunami-hit Fukushima nuclear power plant has not killed one member of the public, but has generated a new basis on which much wider debate in Australia and overseas can now take place. Addressing a specially arranged Japan nuclear issues session this afternoon on the first day of the Paydirt 2011 Uranium Conference in Adelaide, Sir Hubert Wilkins Chair of Climate Change, University of Adelaide, Professor Barry Brook, said although Fukushima has emerged as a serious Level 5 accident on the international nuclear event scale, it was wrong to call it an ‘accident’ as it was in all effect, an act of God.“While an accident attributed to failures in technology is a different matter, this incident will have the effect of spurring a whole range of discussions in Australia and worldwide,” Professor Brook said. “Ultimately, that is a good thing. The more people make the effort to educate themselves, the better understanding there will be on modern day nuclear technology, the new Generation 3+ and Generation 4 nuclear power plants, and how they link in with climate change mitigation and replacement of fossil fuels.“Anyone who thinks critically about the future of energy supply will inevitably draw the conclusion that nuclear power will be a significant part of our future energy portfolio. This will apply not just in surging economies with huge un-met power demands, such as India and China, but in those countries that need to replace their reliance on carbon-intensive fossil fuels like coal and gas. This includes Australia, unavoidably, as we have a more than 90% reliance on fossil fuels to generate power.”Brook told the crowded auditorium that while the safety of nuclear power is under the spotlight, it had to be remembered that the plants under impact in Japan were the very original Mark 1 commercial plants designed in the 1960s. They were built between 1971 and 1978.“The plants being built today are Generation 3, with the advantage of 40 years of additional technological development, and the next ones are Generation 4. Fukushima represented the very first one of its reactor types to be hit by an earthquake – yet it has managed to contain all of its nuclear fuel. Yes, there have been small radiation releases that do not pose public health risks, but the overall containment has meant it has not gone into full meltdown.“It has not exploded, the whole plant has not dissolved, as mass media would have you believe, into a molten mass – as even back in the 1960s, these plants were built under robust design principles. What we had was a 10-m tsunami that wiped out the multi-back up systems.”Brook said the new breed of reactors that are currently being built in Korea, China, Europe and the US had already taken these problems into account in their passive and engineered design systems. For example, cooling power systems were fully protected and in an emergency, could cool themselves over five days independent of external sources.“The underlying demand for nuclear energy is not going away and countries facing surging power demands will not ultimately be changing their minds about expanding or implementing a nuclear energy cycle. That bodes well for the future of the uranium and nuclear sectors – and for mitigating climate change.”Australian politicians and the national nuclear industry are “joined at the hip” for the moment following the ramifications of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, according to prominent pro-uranium lobbyist, Greg Rudd, who also addressed the first day of the conference. And no politician in their own right is going to champion nuclear power in Australia in this current election cycle – despite the obvious environmental advantages in doing so.“Before the Japan earthquake, I was going to give a breakdown of the various agendas of political players in Australia in relation to the nuclear industry,” said Rudd. “Now of course the reset button has been pressed,” he said. “The blackboard has not so much been wiped clean, but momentarily flipped to send messages to constituent publics all over the world that Japan is a wake-up call.“It will not be business as usual in the nuclear sector, safety must come first and everyone needs to do some hard analysis before we moved forward. In time, the fear of a global meltdown will dim and logic of using nuclear energy as part of the cleaner mix will reassert itself.”But that won’t be happening any time soon, Rudd said. His view is that no democratic government will be wanting to go to the next election in these politically turbulent times on an unequivocal pro-nuclear platform. “There’s an old saying in politics – ‘when in doubt, do nothing’. Time will heal,” Rudd said. “In a couple of years, common sense will begin to return.“I am by no means saying that the nuclear power industry is perfect, but I am saying that over time with human ingenuity and best practice, we can make it as humanely perfect as possible knowing that no endeavour in life is risk-free. Or we can dumb it down – dig more coal out of the ground because its bulk commodity easy, send it to China and India so no children in those places will ever see blue sky by 2050, and pretend somehow that Mother Nature isn’t going to kick our butt down the track with a series of environmental disasters, for not heeding her wake-up calls.”Rudd said one of the most impressive marketing “miracles” he had seen over recent times was the ability of the coal industry to introduce and legitimise the term “clean coal”. And gas is “good” because it is only half as “bad” as coal, Rudd said. “Nuclear has no emissions so that must be ‘too good’ to be true,” he said. “The real issue is not that people don’t believe in zero emissions from nuclear power, they do.“But what the majority of voters do not believe in is the human ability to not make a mistake through greed, incompetence or miscalculation. It is not that people aren’t backing nuclear power, they’re just not backing humanity’s ability to deliver clean nuclear power in a long-term, safe way.”last_img read more

Copper from old mines and lowgrade deposits

first_imgNew technology to extract of copper using sulphuric acid mixed with multiple species of bacteria has been initiated at a mine in northern Chile. Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corp (JOGMEC) will conduct a two-year experiment to understand whether copper can be extracted on a commercial scale from low-grade ores. According to Chief Researcher at JOGMEC, Taro Kamiya, the bacteria used in this new method of extraction, is naturally found on copper ores. “As copper ores from [the testing area} provide high iron content rates, the bacteria can be easily activated,” he is reported as saying.The company believe that if this new method proves to be a success, most abandoned copper mines could be revived, adds Kamiya “This technology makes it possible to extract copper at more than double the speed that can be achieved if humans extract copper with sulphuric acid alone.”JOBMEC reports that “Japanese companies have been studying mine development using hydrometallurgical technology in the following three cases:Recovering copper from low-grade sulphide minerals, which lowers the marginal level of ore grade for exploitation and increases minable ore reservesLooking for economic efficiencies in developing small and medium-sized mines with a small initial cost and a short development periodProducing copper concentrate with a large proportion of impurities such as arsenic, antimony, and bismuth at sites in the vicinity of SX-EW plants.”last_img read more

Trump Administration Will Let States Require People To Work For Medicaid

first_img Share Nicholas Kamm/AFP/Getty ImagesSeema Verma, administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, led efforts to require work for Medicaid recipients while in charge of Indiana’s program. She was sworn in as administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services by Vice President Pence on March 14.Updated at 11:29 a.m. ETThe Trump administration is encouraging states to require “able-bodied” Medicaid recipients to work or volunteer in order to keep their health insurance coverage.On Thursday, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which is part of the Department of Health and Human Services, issued new guidelines for states that want some adults to work in exchange for the health insurance coverage.Today @CMSGov is releasing guidance to support state efforts to improve #Medicaid enrollee #health outcomes by incentivizing community engagement among able-bodied beneficiaries.— CMS Administrator (@SeemaCMS) January 11, 2018Under the rules, states can require Medicaid beneficiaries to work, volunteer or participate in job training. People who are elderly or disabled, and pregnant women and children, would be excluded.CMS Administrator Seema Verma said on Twitter that the new efforts will “improve Medicaid enrollee health outcomes by incentivizing community engagement.”“This is about helping people rise out of poverty,” Verma said Thursday in a conference call with reporters.She cited studies that show a correlation between good health and having a job.But opponents to tying Medicaid to work argue that good health leads to the ability to hold down a job.“Access to Medicaid makes it easier for people to look for work and obtain employment,” says Suzanne Wikle of the Center for Law and Social Policy. “A so-called ‘work requirement’ does not support work, but instead puts a critical support for work at risk.”Ten states — Arizona, Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Utah and Wisconsin — have already filed applications with CMS to add work requirements to their Medicaid programs.But it’s not clear how many people would be affected by the new rules. A study in December in JAMA Internal Medicine found that about half of the Medicaid recipients in Michigan were already working.In addition, people who are disabled under the Americans with Disabilities Act but have Medicaid benefits for another reason could be exempted or the state would be required to make “reasonable modifications” such as reduced hourly requirement to ensure that the requirements don’t disproportionately hurt people with disabilities.And states are also required to make such accommodations for people with addiction to opioids and other substances. That could mean counting time spent in drug treatment as a form of “community engagement.”The range of “community engagement” requirements can be quite broad, according to the CMS guidelines sent to states on Thursday. In addition to traditional work and job training, engagement could include caring for a child or elderly parent, seeking treatment for drug addiction, or going to school.Verma said the agency wants to give states as much latitude as possible to try out their own ideas.“There are a lot of different ideas, and a lot of ways to go about this,” she said. “We want to give states as much flexibility as possible because that’s where we’ll be able to evaluate what actually works best.”Copyright 2018 NPR.

Arx Libertatis crossplatform port of Arx Fatalis released

first_imgAnyone who is a fan of the games created by Looking Glass Studios (System Shock, Thief) or the Ultima Underworld series by Blue Sky Productions, will no doubt count Arx Fatalis on their list of owned and completed games. It was released back in 2002 by Arkane Studios for PC and Xbox, and was heavily influenced by those games mentioned above. It also received generally good reviews and with good reason.The gameplay is a first-person action role-playing game that offered a mix of combat, gesture-based spellcasting, and stealth, as well as a crafting system and four possible endings based on the decisions you make during play. If it sounds like a game you want to play, then you can pick it up for $6 on GOG.com or Steam.What’s interesting about Arx Fatalis is that development of the game started up again last year. Arkane Studios released patch 1.21 and with it open sourced the engine. That led to an new project called Arx Libertatis, which aimed to update the game to be played on multiple modern operating systems including Windows and Linux. And as this is an open source project support for other system is also possible due to the source code being available (getting the game to run on Mac and FreeBSD is also possible).With over a year of work under their belts, the Arx Libertatis team have just announced the first release version of the updated engine. It is called Arx Libertatis 1.0 “Bloody Gobblers!”To play it you need to own the original game, which as mentioned above will only cost you $6 (although it does work with the demo code, apparently). Then you can download the official patch and the Arx Libertatis executable, and be playing an enhanced version of the original a few minutes later.As the original game was for PC and Xbox, it relied heavily on DirectX. Arx Libertatis changed that by porting the engine to use SDL, OpenGL, and OpenAL so as to open up compatibility for other systems. They’ve also fixed a number of glitches the original game had, updated the rendering system, video resolutions, and implemented a port to the amd64 architecture.While version 1.0 is now out, the project is far from over. Future development hopes to add a game editor, support for modern shaders, hardware transform and lighting, hardware physics, support for community resources, and continue to improve performance in general. They are even talking about implementing a brand new story mode, too.Here’s a longer gameplay video of the original PC version to give you a taste of what to expect from the game:Read more at Arx Libertatislast_img read more
