Brock University and CUPE 42073 ratify collective agreement

Brock University’s Board of Trustees and CUPE Local 4207-3 have ratified the collective agreement that was reached in mediated talks on April 3.The Union represents 38 ESL instructors at Brock who have been on strike since March 26. Both parties worked with a provincially-appointed mediator to reach the tentative agreement.“This has been a difficult round of negotiations,” says Murray Knuttila, Provost and Vice-President, Academic. “We’re pleased that this agreement will end the current strike, allowing ESL instructors to return to work.”Academic classes and activities for Thursday April 5 are expected to operate on a normal schedule and the exam period will commence on April 12 as planned.Students with questions about the status of their academic classes should contact their course instructors, as well as check their Brock email or Sakai.RELATED POSTS:Brock University and CUPE 4207-3 reach tentative deal (April 3, 2012)University and Union to meet with Mediator (April 2, 2012)Anticipate continued delays when entering Brock campus (April 1, 2012)Brock Provost speaks to concerns about academic implications of strike (March 29, 2012)University remains available to meet with Union (March 27, 2012)Consider alternatives to deal with Brock traffic and parking delays (March 26, 2012)Statement from Brock University regarding labour disruption (March 26, 2012)ESL instructors on strike at Brock (March 25, 2012)Bargaining update involving University and CUPE Local 4207 Unit 3 (March 22, 2012) read more

Maximising comminution efficiency and reducing costs

first_imgVisit Metso at MINExpo and learn about the three biggest ways to reduce capital expenditure (CAPEX) and operational expenditure (OPEX) through circuit design. The three ways are to “reduce the quantity of operating equipment, use the most efficient equipment available and ensure that the complete comminution circuit is designed to maximize plant efficiency. With new advances in equipment, such as the Metso MP®2500 cone crusher, the Metso HRC™3000 HPGR and the Metso VERTIMILL® VTM-4500-C, new exciting solutions are pushing the boundaries of circuit design.“The same common themes for energy-efficient circuits have been discussed in countless papers. Crush more, grind less! Don’t overgrind! And, of course, a popular topic is the energy savings offered by going to an HPGR circuit instead of primary grinding. These general concepts are all valid, but they are just pieces of the bigger puzzle; there is further room for improvement.”With diminishing ore grades and rising energy costs, ensuring that a plant has the lowest total cost of ownership is vital. One way to achieve this is to reduce the number of lines in the comminution circuit with as few moving components as possible – a strategy that has been employed in SAG mill circuits for some time. From a CAPEX perspective, the single unit equipment typically has a lower installed cost than multiple smaller units. Cost savings come from a smaller footprint, a reduction in installation costs, a reduction in ancillary equipment, and shorter commissioning time, which results in quicker realization of production targets. By having a single-line circuit, equipment availability is increased as there is less equipment that needs regular maintenance and that can break down. Moreover, larger machines tend to have similar maintenance intervals as smaller machines; but with less machines to maintain, the overall plant availability can be increased.The MP2500 cone crusher, the HRC3000 HPGR, and the VERTIMILL VTM-4500-C are the largest equipment of their kind. With these machines, single line/single equipment crushing circuits up to 95,000 t/d are now achievable. However, these machines are not just known for their sheer size. They offer significant improvements over the traditional versions available to the market. Metso’s MP cone crushers are the industry standard when it comes to large cone crushing and are known for processing more ore than any competitive unit at the same reduction ratio or product size. And now, the MP2500 offers the largest available feed opening on the market, which potentially reduces the load on the primary crusher and could allow for smaller or a lower quantity of primary crushers.Metso’s HRC3000 features the patented Arch-frame and a flanged roll design, which provides increased machine capacity, improved energy efficiency, and increased roll life compared to traditional HPGRs on the market. In closed-circuit testing, the Arch-frame and flanges were shown to increase the circuit capacity by over 20% and decrease specific energy by over 10%. The Arch-frame also provides alignment that is critical for larger HPGR sizes, such as the HRC3000.Finally, the VERTIMILL VTM-4500-C is the world’s largest gravity-induced stirred mill and the only stirred mill on the market that is practical to use in a high-capacity secondary grinding application, says Metso. This means that an HRC HPGR can directly feed a VERTIMILL grinding mill. In one operating installation, two VTM-4500-C mills are in a closed circuit with multiple stages of high-frequency screens, and are accepting a feed of 90% passing 3 mm and grinding to a specification of 85% passing 74 micron at 400 t/h. Additionally, with the VTM-7000-C model now available, operators are able to further reduce the number of lines while taking advantage of the energy efficiency and footprint benefits of the VERTIMILL.Regardless of how efficient any piece of equipment is, in order to have the most profitable operation, the total comminution circuit must be designed to maximize the overall plant efficiency while providing the required liberation for the downstream processes. Every plant has different needs, and our expertise extends beyond the supply of a single piece of equipment. Metso’s experts can help provide a total flowsheet solution that fits the unique needs of your plant.last_img read more

Acer Iconia dualtouchscreen laptop has killer specs murderous price

first_imgComputer makers have reacted in myriad ways to the iPad‘s success, and although few of these actual tablet concepts have been released, you can’t say that they’re mere iPad clones. The Samsung‘s Galaxy Tab dares to ship in a much smaller form factor than the iPad, and the likes of Dell‘s Inspiron Duo try to take on the iPad’s dominance with a convertible hybrid tablet / netbook with a screen that flips around like a chalkboard.Acer‘s not short of ingenuity either. They’ve been putting together an intriguing new dual-screen tablet / notebook called the Iconia, and while it’s not meant to challenge the iPad, it’s certainly an intriguing piece of kit.Why? The Iconia features two 14-inch multitouch LCDs and no physical keyboard… a daring choice that could make or break this powerful beastie, which also boasts a Core i5 CPU, 4GB of RAM, a 750GB hard drive, optional 3G and even a working USB 3.0 port.That’s a lot of oomph in a laptop or a tablet. Unfortunately, it all carries an extremely high price: almost $2,000 when it is released in Spain on January 28th. That’s a lot of money to pay for a device that, without a physical keyboard, seems more suitable as an e-reader than a laptop or a tablet.Read more at Engadgetlast_img read more

Imperial College Department of Surgery and Cancer reports 87 maternity return rate

first_imgImperial College London’s Department of Surgery and Cancer, which specialises in surgical and oncological practice and research, has announced that its maternity return rate has reached 87%, due to various family-friendly policies introduced since 2014.In data gathered at the end of 2018 and released on Wednesday 6 March 2019, the department also revealed that 48% of its trainees doing research are women, a substantial increase on the 38% reported in 2014, and that the number of female scientists it employs has doubled since 2013.These improvements are cited as a result of a commitment made in 2013 to change the department’s culture to one that supports staff to work in a way that is compatible with a healthy family life. In June 2018, this led to it joining working parent network Mumsnet’s Family Friendly programme, which encourages employers to commit to a Family Friendly Charter, and to nurture diverse talent, namely mothers and returners.Justine Roberts, founder at Mumsnet, said: “We’ve been talking about the benefits of family-friendly approaches for years, but nothing beats the hard evidence that they work. It’s exciting to see the proof that these changes can have such impact, and in an area [like medicine and research] that hasn’t traditionally engaged with this issue.”The department has 609 members of staff, 52% of which are female. These employees are spread across five campuses in London: St Mary’s, Charing Cross, Hammersmith, South Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster.As part of its commitment to supporting working carers the Department of Surgery and Cancer promotes flexible working from the moment a job is advertised, provides access to My Family Care, offers 52 weeks of maternity leave and shared parental leave to all staff, including those fostering or adopting, and offers maternity and paternity mentoring buddy schemes.My Family Care is a service that helps to access emergency childcare and school holiday cover. In addition, the department provides highchairs, changing facilities and dedicated resting and nursing rooms on all campuses.In a 2017 staff survey, 77% of the department’s employees stated that their line managers are supportive of their requests for flexible working.The department also reported that its Elsie Widdowson Fellowship, for academic staff returning to work following maternity, adoption or shared parental leave, has been awarded to 12 individuals since 2008. Its Daphne Jackson Fellowship, introduced in 2015 to allow female employees to work part-time over two to three years, has been awarded to two women.Chris Peters, clinical senior lecturer and surgeon at the Department of Surgery and Cancer, said: “People and culture’ is not just a phrase to us, it means placing staff and their [families’] wellbeing at the centre of the decisions we make, ensuring our policies and procedures are flexible.”last_img read more

Georgia Opens First Phase of Cyber Center in Augusta

first_imgGeorgia this week celebrated the opening of the first of two facilities in Augusta that will make up the Georgia Cyber Center, a $100 million investment by the state intended to leverage the Army’s decision to relocate its Cyber Command headquarters to Fort Gordon. The center, which will provide workforce training through certificate programs and undergraduate and graduate-level degree programs, is a public-private collaboration with multiple universities and colleges, state agencies, Augusta, and other federal and local partners. The new facility was designed with the objective of integrating students and professionals in a close environment, reports Fifth Domain. “This visionary approach to cybersecurity underscores our commitment to encouraging innovation and developing a deep talent pool ready to establish Georgia as the safest state in the nation for today’s leaders in technology,” Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal (R) said in a press release.Army Cyber Command’s move to Fort Gordon is expected to be completed by the end of 2020 and bring 1,500 active duty military, defense civilian and contract personnel jobs to the region.Illustration courtesy of Georgia Cyber Center Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

Mint Mobile 6 months of service for 60

first_img Aug 31 • iPhone 11, Apple Watch 5 and more: The final rumors The Cheapskate This no-strings-attached offer is a great way to test-drive Mint Mobile on the cheap. Mint Mobile Buying a new Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and need service to go with it? Not loving the price or performance of your current carrier? Looking for a dirt-cheap plan for your backup phone? You’ve come to the right Cheapskate.For a limited time, phone carrier Mint Mobile is offering a pretty sweet buy-one-get-one (BOGO) deal: Buy 3 months of service, get 3 months free. Total cost: Just $60. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.See it at Mint MobileThat deal nets you Mint’s 8GB 4G LTE plan, meaning you get 8GB of high-speed data per month and unlimited talk and text. Should you decide to continue, it’ll be at the regular rate.That rate varies depending on whether you purchase 3, 6 or 12 months of service at a time. (That’s Mint Mobile’s “thing” — prepaid blocks.) The regular 3-month rate is $105, which prorates out to $35 per month. If you choose the 6-month option, it comes out to $25 per month (so $150 total). And at 12 months, it’s $240 — $20 per month.There are cheaper and pricier tiers as well, offering 3GB and 12GB of LTE data, respectively. My guess is that most users will get by just fine on 8GB, but obviously, that’s up to you to decide.To use Mint, you need an unlocked phone that supports GSM carrier bands. Ostensibly, that’s AT&T and T-Mobile, but many newer phones, such as the 2018 iPhone models, should work even if they were originally sold on Sprint and Verizon plans. Mint uses the T-Mobile network, so if the latter offers good coverage in your area, so will Mint. If it doesn’t, then you’ll probably want to look at other options.Although I haven’t used the service myself, I’ve written about it many times, and most readers have reported being extremely happy with it. (Your mileage may vary, of course.) Here’s your chance to test-drive it for half a year for just $60.Your thoughts?Bonus deal: Don’t hate me for yet another true-wireless earbuds saleSo, yeah, yesterday’s Criacr true-wireless earbuds deal was a bust. It sold out within minutes, and I’m told that, unfortunately, there will be no more of that product at that price. (Not from that seller, anyway.) Obviously I’ll keep my eyes out for similarly amazing deals, but for now…10-taotronics-tws-true-wireless-earphones Sarah Tew/CNET Amazon has the TaoTronics TT-BH053 True Wireless Bluetooth 5.0 Earbuds for $34.99 when you clip the on-page $10-off coupon. They’re normally $10 more, natch — and already a steal at $45.See it at AmazonPhysically, these are much closer to Apple AirPods, but a bit less ostentatious all thanks to their matte-black color. They have a respectable 4.1-star average from over 1,000 customers, and CNET’s David Carnoy found them “better than you’d expect” (given the price) in his TT-BH053 review.I know $35 is not $13, but this represents yet another example of how you can get a very decent set of true-wireless earbuds for a very decent price. Were it not for yesterday’s deal, I’d be making a much bigger fuss over these.Giveaways: Your chance to win a 65-inch TV and a Galaxy Note 10 Plus!Wow. CNET’s giveaway game is smoking right now.

We cannot survive without Jazz FONTE

first_imgThe Japan Foundation presented FONTE for a jazz performance on Saturday at FICCI Auditorium in the national Capital. The independent administrative institution aims at promoting a greater awareness and appreciation of Japanese arts and cultures with a better understanding of culture, art and music through such functions. The event was conceptualised by Misako Futsuki, Director of Japan Foundation. FONTE is a Japanese music group who was joined by performers including Indian musicians Gaurav Mazumdar and Mohit Lal and Japanese musician Kiichiro Komobuchi. An audience of around 850 music lovers enjoyed the evening’s jazz performance to the fullest, as the six performing artists enthralled them.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’FONTE has three members, Masami Nakagawa, Kazuhiko Obata and Gennoshin Yasui since their inception. The Japanese Foundation has invited Komobuchi for bass as a special guest. FONTE had come together when Yasui was in Sao Paulo, Brazil and Nakagawa visited him. During this visit, they had a chance to perform with Filo Machado (VoG) there and after coming back to Japan, they wanted to have the great performance again together with the guitar player, Obata. That is how the group got together and started performing. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixWhen asked what Jazz meant to them, they said that Jazz is same as daily meal for them and that it is a global language (to communicate with people from all over the world). “We cannot survive without Jazz,” was the first-class reply. One of the group members, Yasui was based in Brazil, that is how Brazilian music caught their attention and dedication. FONTE aims to elaborate Brazilian music freely and playfully. To answer how they feel about Indian classical music, they said that, it is very different and Indian classical music has a very unique and long tradition, totally dissimilar from other musical genres.  “Somehow it sounds very amorous or charming to us”, said the musicians. FONTE is hoping to have many chances to play around the world in the near future. The group was formed in 2004 and they released their first album, a live recording, titled ‘FONTE Live at Corcovado’. They spent a lot of time to record their second album, ‘Conforto’, whose theme was comfort, and was released in 2010, while recording of their third album, ‘ENERGIA’, started after the Great East Japan Earthquake.last_img read more

With Eye on Small Businesses Google Gets Into the Domain Registration Game

first_img 2 min read June 24, 2014 Listen Now Problem Solvers with Jason Feifer Look out, GoDaddy. Google is building a domain registration service aimed at helping small businesses develop or imprve their web presence.Google Domains is still in a beta invite-only phase, but once it officially launches, businesses will be able to find and buy the domain they desire including ones with popular suffixes like “.com,” “.org” and new ones that will become available in the near future.Google Domain sites will be hosted on Google’s own DNS servers – which the company says guarantees a quick response time — and users will be able to buy and sell their domains without being charged extra for private registration. They’ll also be able to create up to 100 email addresses and 100 customized subdomains. Related: Google Unveils New Tool for Businesses to Manage Their Online PresenceThe company says users who purchase or transfer a domain to Google Domains can create their websites through one of their partnering website builders — Shopify, Squarespace, Weebly and Wix.Through Domains, the tech giant is taking aim at GoDaddy, which filed for an initial public offering earlier this month, and other domain-name registration companies.Related: Google Just Bought a Satellite Company for $500 MillionThe move also extends Google’s push to serve small businesses.

More than 400 arrested in Cancun during spring break

first_imgCancun, Q.R. — The office of Civil Protection says that although spring break in Cancun was successful this year, there were still drownings, car accidents, material damages and arrests.According to their figures, the beaches of Cancun received over 112,500 visitors during Semana Santa and spring break. Their report shows 113 people were rescued from the sea with an additional 98 requiring assistance to return to shore. Of those, 10 required first aid while two people died from drowning.The director of the Tourist Police of Benito Juárez, Carlos Bustos Álvarez, said that security was maintained in the Cancun Hotel Zone due to the deployment of additional police. He says that more than 100 municipal and state police rotated shifts to patrol the Hotel Zone along with the Mexican armed forces.Bustos Álvarez said that this included sorting out traffic chaos throughout the city with the addition of a third lane in the Cancun Hotel Zone. He added that there were 12 auto accidents reported during the season.Security figures also reported city material damages in the order of 1.5 million peso, but did not provide details.Civil Protection did provide details on the amount of arrests that took place this year, noting 420 people were taken into custody. Most of those arrested were for rioting in the streets, consuming alcoholic beverages on public roads or passing out on public streets.Of those 420 arrested, 389 were men and 31 were women, all of whom were presented before a judge. Civil Protection also reports that 258 of the arrested were local residents, adding that 21 were national tourists and 141 were foreign tourists.In March, municipal authorities in Cancun handed out a Code of Conduct to the young spring break crowd that explained the city’s rules. They were asked to keep their clothes on and alcohol off the streets in an attempt to keep incidents such as arrests to a minimum.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more

World air travel increases in the year 2016

first_imgAccording to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), a large number of people had travelled via airlines in 2016.The agency said in its official statement that there were nearly 3.7 billion people who had taken a scheduled flight in the year 2016,a figure that was six percent better as compared to 2015. The growth was mainly attributed to low-cost carriers. ICAO said that about a billion passengers representing 28% of the world’s total passenger traffic were served by low-cost carriers.The Revenue Passenger Kms (RPKs) that is used to calculate the passengers who bought airline ticket relative to the distance that they travelled, hit the mark of 7,015 billion RPKs. The figure marked a 6.3% rise from 2015, but it was slower than the 7.1% growth that had been recorded in 2014.ICAO said that the above conditions along with the cheaper cost of oil have also helped the profitability of the airline in the year 2016.In 2016, the airline industry had witnessed a profit of $60 billion that was an increase from $58 billion in 2015. ICAO also added that the industry-wide operating margin was quite stable at eight percent. For a consecutive year, over one-third of the profits are believed to come from the carriers of North America. The domestic market represents about 66% of the total operations, as revealed by ICAO. It also added that improving the economic conditions that have been forecast by the World Bank would also observe a greater air traffic growth and air carrier profitability momentum, in 2017.Budget airlines in Europe accounted for about 32%. It was followed by Asia-Pacific and North America that accounted for 31% and 25% respectively. ICAO said that even though the economic conditions were weak, the global passenger traffic continued to grow, strengthened by lower air fares because of lower air fares as a result of the slump in oil prices.last_img read more
