Coal prices to soar as floods reach a peak

first_img Show Comments ▼ Coal prices to soar as floods reach a peak whatsapp whatsapp TRADERS expect coal prices to rise further after the devastating floods in Australia saw prices jump $10 (£6.40) a tonne earlier in the week.Both thermal and coking coal prices have risen sharply this year due to the impact of the Australian floods, energy consultancy Wood Mackenzie said yesterday.Australian coal is used abundantly to produce electricity and in steel making throughout Asia.Markets in steelmaking coal paused yesterday, but analysts are predicting prices will jump to record highs when trading resumes.Thermal coal prices could reach or exceed 2008’s record $197 (£126) a tonne free-on-board to Newcastle port, when floods also caused a price spike, Wood Mackenzie said.Yesterday a February loading South African cargo traded at $129 a tonne, and another cargo on the DES ARA index traded at $132 a tonne.Coal mining and exports have ground to a halt in Queensland state and Brisbane, with mines closing and transport facing severe obstructions. The floods are the worst experienced in Australian for a century.Floods are expected to peak today, as thousands of people are evacuated.Australia is the world’s second largest thermal coal exporter after Indonesia, a key supplier to the coal-hungry Pacific Rim.And almost two thirds of global exports of coking or metallurgical coal, which is used for steel making, comes from Australia.US coal is a possible replacement, yet logistical problems with American ports and rail capacity are thwarting efforts to take advantage of the booming prices and demand.“The market’s had to take a breather but there’s no doubt as to its direction with all the bottlenecks around the world,” one major European trader said.“The Queensland coal crisis is bad news for steelmakers worldwide, especially for those without supply contracts in place,” said Moody’s. “The current metallurgical coal price spikes could nearly double the cost of producing a ton of steel,” the ratings agency added.

Royston Wild | Saturday, 15th May, 2021 Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Studies show that responsible investing is becoming more and more important to people. The good news is that there are plenty of so-called green stocks for people to choose to invest in. And the number continues to grow. Right now UK and US share pickers can get exposure to renewable energy, the recycling industry, electric car manufacturing… The list is huge.At the moment there are few options for those seeking green stocks that operate in the lab-grown meat sector. However, I think US share Tyson Foods (NYSE: TSN) could be a good way to get exposure to this fast-growing food segment. The food giant is one of several blue chips and venture capital funds that have invested in cultured meat manufacturer Future Meat Technologies.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…This cutting-edge food producer just raised $26.8m, in fact, to boost production and accelerate research and development. Investment in the world of lab-produced meat is heating up as the size of its potential customer base becomes more apparent. A recent report by scientific journal Foods suggested that 80% of US and UK citizens would be tempted to try vat-grown meat (half of which said that they were “highly likely” to try it). The upside for Tyson Foods could therefore be huge.Rewards vs riskThe popularity of vegetarian and vegan diets is soaring for various reasons. Aside from issues surrounding animal welfare, concerns over the quantity of greenhouse gases that livestock herds emit is also turning people off meat. As well, worries over how much water and land that pastoral farming requires compared with what arable farming needs is also causing people to seek more nature-friendly alternatives.It’s worth remembering that the lab-grown meat industry is still in its infancy. Thus it’s too early to claim that Future Meat Technologies could be on the road to riches. As for Tyson Foods itself, this US share is one of the biggest producers of chicken, pork, and beef on the planet. It could turn out that the business cannibalises its core operations by pushing into the cultured and plant-based meat segments.A green stock of the future?Still, in the long term, Tyson’s plan to become a market leader in the lab-grown meat segment could pay off handsomely. Analysts at AT Kearney predicted two years ago that 60% of all meat won’t come from animals by 2040. Instead it will come from the lab bench or be replaced by plant-based alternatives.I believe the growing popularity of non-meat diets in the wake of Covid-19 could see demand for lab-produced meat grow at an even faster rate, too. Mintel data shows that that 25% of Brits aged between 21 and 30 years now find a vegan diet more appealing than they did prior to Covid-19. Tyson Foods is trying to stay ahead of the curve by dipping its toe in the artificial meat industry. I think it’s a plan that could deliver big shareholder returns in the years ahead.

Elinor Snowsill on rugby’s transformative effects

first_imgWhen I was in school, kids would put tomboys back in their box by calling them a lesbian. It definitely had an impact on how I felt about myself and is probably the reason I took so long – I was 23 – to come out to friends and family.Does coming out still have to be a thing? In my world it doesn’t but I was asked to do a documentary for S4C when there’d been a few homophobic attacks across the UK and I’d heard about a couple of people who were struggling to come out to their family. If I could make a difference in people’s attitudes that would be great.From a results perspective, Wales are not in great shape. But if you saw what we’re doing behind the scenes, it’s exciting. We lost all our games in the Six Nations, but parts of the rugby we played are the best I’ve been involved in.I’m excited to see where we are come the 2021 World Cup. I think this will be the best World Cup ever. I’ve been lucky to play in other World Cups and it’s a real privilege. This one will be totally different because it’s on the other side of the world in New Zealand. The furthest I’ve been for a World Cup before is Paris! This article originally appeared in the June 2020 edition of Rugby World magazine.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The Wales fly-half discusses her work with School of Hard Knocks and her hopes for the future of the women’s game LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS I’d like to set up a private school for kids like the ones I work with to come to free. They could stay at the school all week because for some kids home can be a toxic environment and the reason they struggle to behave. If you take them out of that environment, you can work closely with them. It’s an idea at the moment, but if anyone wants to fund it get in touch!I’d love to be a high-level head coach one day. With a women’s team, because I understand girls a bit more. I’ve done my Level One course and I’m working with the WRU to get more badges.It’s really important to have more female coaches in the game. It’s an opportunity for retired players to help inspire the next generation. There was only one female in the (Women’s) Six Nations coaching teams. It shows how much we need to push our recruitment on.The next step is realising we’re not mini men, we’re women. It’s an exciting time to be part of sport and looking at what works for women rather than just replicating what men do. Since the story about Chelsea FC (planning training around menstrual cycles), there’s been a lot more talk around it. We (Wales Women) have a female general manager, Charly Wathan, and I think she’d implement something like that.center_img There’s always a reason behind behaviour and I do one-on-one mentoring to find out what’s going on. I’m in my third year with SOHK and now do five days a week.The school identifies a group they want us to work with – most of mine are girls in Years Eight and Nine. The first hour is on personal development. We have a loose curriculum but it depends on their needs. One group were fighting a lot so we did a session on ‘One punch, one kill’. The second hour is rugby training and we also take them on trips to play other SOHK teams.Not many sports can be as effective as rugby at changing behaviour. Firstly, respect is huge and that’s something we instil in the kids. It’s not just respecting the ref but coaches, team-mates…The second thing is the power of the team; how we build them together to make the SOHK team, earning the kit and being part of it.Rugby wouldn’t be as successful if it wasn’t a contact sport. The physical aspect, the contact part, is the third thing. It’s that ability to be physical but not be told off for it. Instead of fighting, kids can learn to put in a big tackle and the rewards of that. They learn how to channel their aggression. Elinor Snowsill on rugby’s transformative effects Last year Elinor Snowsill was going viral for a behind-the-back kick while playing for the Barbarians against the USA. That may not have led to a change in tactics, but the Wales fly-half is aware of rugby’s ability to change lives. Here she explains more…I’m lead coach for the School of Hard Knocks schools programme in Wales. There are two different programmes. The adult one is an eight-week intensive course and focuses on getting people back into work or education. Then they decided to have a preventative programme in schools.I turned down a really good job to work one day a week with SOHK. I was going to teach A Level psychology but the WRU asked if I’d be interested in doing coaching with SOHK. I went to see what they did and fell in love with it – it’s the perfect job for me. It’s rugby and challenging behaviour. Calling the shots: Elinor Snowsill directs play for Wales (Getty Images) last_img read more

Foto de la Escuela de Arquitectura de la Universidad del Estado de Montana.[Episcopal News Service] Una coalición de episcopales, estudiantes de arquitectura y proveedores de servicios sociales en Bozeman, Montana, están en medio de un proyecto innovador que se propone abordar el problema de la indigencia en la ciudad con un espacio de 14 metros cuadrados por unidad.El concepto es una aldea de casas diminutas para indigentes crónicos en torno a un centro comunitario de recursos, donde los residentes podrían recibir consejería, asistencia médica y ayuda para encontrar empleo hasta que puedan mudarse a hogares permanentes. Los organizadores  aún están a la búsqueda de un sitio adecuado, pero la mayoría de las otras piezas del proyecto están cayendo en su lugar mientras otros grupos e individuos de la comunidad respaldan la idea.“De repente, ha surgido esta coalición que se muestra entusiasmada con lo que queremos hacer”, dijo la Rda. Connie Pearson-Campbell, diácona de la iglesia episcopal de Santiago Apóstol [St. James Episcopal Church] en Bozeman, que es una de las fuerzas motrices detrás de la propuesta Primera Aldea de Vivienda.[Housing First Village].Sara Savage, directora de viviendas  en el Consejo de Desarrollo de Recursos Humanitarios, o HRDC [por su sigla en inglés] definió a  Pearson-Campbell como un “huracán de relaciones públicas” en la búsqueda de apoyos para el proyecto. El HRDC, una agencia de acción comunitaria sin fines de lucro, aporta años de experiencia en proporcionarle albergue y servicios a la población indigente de la localidad.La Universidad del Estado de Montana es el tercer actor de esta coalición. La Escuela de Arquitectura creó un curso el otoño pasado en el cual los estudiantes diseñaron las casitas, y cursos subsecuentes ayudarán este año a hacer avanzar el proyecto a través de las fases regulatoria y de construcción.“Nos damos cuenta de que probablemente es cuestión de un par de años, o al menos de un año, antes de que podamos poner las primeras unidades en un sito”, dijo Ralph Johnson, profesor de arquitectura. “Estas cosas no suceden de la noche a la mañana. Pero estamos avanzando más rápidamente que la mayoría de las comunidades” que han intentado llevar a cabo proyectos semejantes.Las casas pequeñitas son una fuerte tendencia en el mundo de la construcción de viviendas y en la cultura popular. Los programas de TV de realidad múltiple han venido a mostrar estos pequeños espacios habitables, suscitando incluso que algunos en la industria de la construcción de casas pequeñas debata si tales programas son buenos o malos para el “movimiento”.En ese contexto, las casitas se ven como una tendencia para reducir el espacio de vivienda, pero algunas comunidades, tales como la de San Jorge [St. George, Utah, y Seattle , han demostrado que estas casas diminutas pueden ser herramientas para llegar a las personas sin hogar o a poblaciones de bajos ingresos.La Iglesia Episcopal cuenta con sus propios ejemplos. La iglesia episcopal de Santiago Apóstol [St. James] en la reserva india de Roca Enhiesta [Standing Rock] en Dakota del Norte utilizó una subvención de la Ofrenda Unida de Gracias para construir casitas para estudiantes. Y la iglesia episcopal de San Juan [St. John’s Episcopal Church] en St. Cloud, Minnesota, construyó una sola casita para alojar  a una sola persona indigente  en su propiedad.Lo que singulariza a Pearson-Campbell y a la iglesia episcopal de Santiago Apóstol es que representan una de las tres patas de las tres que sostienen una misión que se consolidó casi por accidente.Se calcula que cualquier noche dada hay unas 150 personas sin hogar en Bozeman, y un 30 por ciento de las cuales se consideran indigentes crónicos, una situación que a menudo se asocia con la enfermedad metal, el consumo de sustancias estupefacientes y otros problemas personales, explicó Savage. La supervivencia en las calles puede ser precaria, especialmente en los crudos meses del invierno de Montana, y desde 2016 se han reportado seis muertes de indigentes en Bozeman.El HRDC ha estado albergando a unas 10 personas a la vez en un espacio de vivienda transitoria llamado Casa Amos [Amos House], pero se vio obligado a cerrar el local en julio pasado luego de perder una subvención federal. Santiago Apóstol intervino y ofreció un albergue que no usaba propiedad de la iglesia, llamado Canterbury House, lo cual le permitió al HRDC convertirla en vivienda para cuatro mujeres indigentes.“Tengo que decir, que contar con asociados locales de carácter religioso que buscan dentro de sus propios recursos… resultó muy impactante y realmente tuvo una repercusión directa en las mujeres sin hogar en el transcurso de un mes”, dijo Savage.Por separado, dijo Pearson-Campbell, ella le oyó contar el verano pasado a un amigo de un proyecto de casitas diminutas en Detroit, y se dio a la idea de hacer algo semejante para abordar el problema de la indigencia en Bozeman.“Le eché un vistazo a eso y pensé,  cielos, creo que podemos hacer esto en Bozeman”, dijo.Sacó a relucir la idea en una reunión con el director de planificación municipal en agosto. A la salida, dio la casualidad que se encontró con Johnson, el profesor de la Universidad de Montana, que se iba a hablar con el director de planificación sobre otro asunto. Luego de las presentaciones, se creó rápidamente una asociación para [la fabricación] de las casitas.Johnson llevó la idea a la universidad y, con otros dos profesores, creó el curso ese otoño en que 12 estudiantes se dieron a la tarea de diseñar las casitas.“Sabía que en la Escuela de Arquitectura había una sólida ética moral entre los estudiantes”, dijo él. Y partiendo de la personalidad de Connie y sus aspiraciones, ofrecí una clase sobre albergues pequeños para la ciudad de Bozeman”.El resultado fue dos modelos, cada uno de sólo 14 metros cuadrados o un poquito más grande. Uno estaba diseñado para ser accesible a personas con discapacidades. Cada modelo incluía una cama personal, área de almacenaje, una ducha, un inodoro, un pequeño refrigerador, un horno microonda, un lavadero y espacio para una silla.Los residentes podrían recibir consejería, asistencia médica y ayuda para encontrar empleo hasta que puedan mudarse a viviendas permanentes. Foto de la Escuela de Arquitectura de la Universidad del Estado de Montana.Los estudiantes luego crearon  maquetas de cartón y las probaron, llegando a invitar a entrar en ellas a miembros de la comunidad de personas sin hogar. El semestre concluyó con un evento de puertas abiertas en diciembre. Más de 100 personas vinieron a ver las maqueta y a informarse sobre el proyecto, dijo Johnson.Seis estudiantes construirán las primeras casitas en un nuevo curso este semestre que también abordará algunos de los obstáculos regulatorios. El código de construcción de Bozeman, como los códigos de muchos ciudades a través del país, incluye restricciones sobre el uso de terrenos, el tamaño del espacio habitable y el trazado de la vivienda que no se ajustan fácilmente a las casitas, explicó Johnson. Sus estudiantes buscarán opciones que puedan presentarles a los funcionarios municipales.Y luego existe el reto de encontrar un sitio adecuado para lo que finalmente podrían ser las docenas de casitas y el centro comunitario de recursos. Savage no tiene ningún calendario definido para garantizar un sitio. Los factores a considerar incluyen costo, zonificación y proximidad a otras residencias.“De encontrarse disponible la parcela adecuada, podríamos avanzar más bien rápidamente”, dijo Savage. “Pero exigirá alguna alineación de los astros, como suele suceder con cualquier proyecto importante como éste”.En cuanto al costo de la construcción, los materiales necesarios para la construcción de cada casita se calculan en unos $10.000, o menos, si donan algunos de los materiales.La iglesia de Santiago Apóstol se ha comprometido con suficiente dinero para construir una de las casas, y una de las tareas de Pearson-Campbell es captar más iglesias y grupos comunitarios para que aporten dinero o incluso que ensamblen una de las casas mismas como un proyecto de servicio. Los estudiantes de Johnson esperan finalmente crear unas instrucciones de ensamblaje que resulte fácil para esos grupos construir las casas por sí mismos, semejante al montaje de los muebles de IKEA, contó Johnson.La ética moral que Johnson ve en muchos de sus alumnos con frecuencia se materializa en un deseo de construir edificios con ahorro de energía, dijo él, pero este proyecto se construye sobre un sentido de responsabilidad social.“Si esto puede darle a los que carecen de hogar una oportunidad de resolver los problemas que les colocan en una circunstancia de indigencia, debemos darles esa oportunidad”, afirmó.– David Paulsen es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

Namibian heroics vs Ireland

first_imgThursday Sep 13, 2007 Namibian heroics vs Ireland The pool stages of the Rugby World Cup aren’t about figuring out who the serious contenders for the Cup are. We pretty much know that already.Of course, there will be upsets, but really it’s about giving the so called “minnows” a chance to have their moment in the limelight. In some cases these teams will use this chance to shine and seize the opportunity with both hands.This is what we saw when Ireland played Namibia in what should have been a thrashing by the experienced Irish outfit against a small African country that is primarily made up of amateurs and club players. However, team-work was truly the source of this underdog story.Yes, Ireland were victorious on the night, but the real victory was Namibia’s passion, teamwork and dogged competitiveness.They slowed Ireland’s ball, they defended courageously and they attacked opportunistically. The final score was 32-17 in Ireland’s favour, but really, it was a night the Namibians will never forget. A night when college players took on seasoned professionals in the game we all love. This was the true spirit of rugby. Playing for the man next to you and never giving up is the way rugby was always meant to be played.Had Ireland’s final try been referred to the TMO, it would have quite possibly been disallowed. Plus, I can’t help but think if the ball had bounced differently in one or two instances the scoreline could’ve been even closer.Here’s to Namibia and all developing rugby nations. If the World Cup has shown us one thing so far, it’s that these smaller nations undoubtedly deserve their place on stage, as supporting roles in the greatest show on earth.

The site is located in a valley at the intersection of a number of small meandering streets. The area is characterized by terraced houses on the east side, on the south side it borders the alluvial plain of the Scheldt and to the west, one looks upwards on the vast old orchard. This farm, which is included in the architectural heritage inventory, remained within the same family for three generations before it became vacant. It consists of a cluster of three volumes (dwelling, stables and the bread house) with a central square overlooking the facades of the terraced houses.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinThese brick volumes with a gable roof are very specific to the area in the use of materials, form, and typology, but vary in size and layout in a very fascinating way. The extremely interesting variety of atmospheres, urban design grain, views, and topology are the starting point for this assignment.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinSave this picture!Floor Plan and ElevationsSave this picture!Sketches CollageThe design is further based on this cluster by providing two additional volumes with a gable roof. We limit the interventions within the existing volumes to the minimum by providing some openings where these are strictly necessary for circulation purposes.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinSave this picture!© Filip DujardinTwo symmetrical wings are added on the west side of the main volume. The two new-build wings are twisted in relation to the existing home and in this way create a patio with an enclosed character. By not touching the two volumes, a passage to the garden is created in a simple way and the volumes remain visually strongly separated from each other, which reinforces the cluster principle.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinProject gallerySee allShow lessModern Extension Of XVII Century House / Nicolas Gianni ArchitecteSelected ProjectsCliff Front 7 (WT Carbon House) / Alexis DornierSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/926234/house-bs-graux-and-baeyens-architecten Clipboard Save this picture!© Filip Dujardin+ 25Curated by Paula Pintos Sharecenter_img 2017 House BS / GRAUX & BAEYENS ArchitectenSave this projectSaveHouse BS / GRAUX & BAEYENS Architecten Photographs Architects: GRAUX & BAEYENS Architecten Area Area of this architecture project Belgium Houses House BS / GRAUX & BAEYENS Architecten “COPY” CopyAbout this officeGRAUX & BAEYENS ArchitectenOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationGavereOn FacebookBelgiumPublished on October 10, 2019Cite: “House BS / GRAUX & BAEYENS Architecten” 10 Oct 2019.

RSF and JED decry Congolese government’s “planned system of repression”

first_img News November 7, 2018 RSF and JED decry Congolese government’s “planned system of repression” Congolese reporter wounded by gunshot while covering protest in Goma Crédit: JED Organisation to go further Journalist in Danger (JED), the partner organization of Reporters Without Borders (RSF) in the Democratic Republic of Congo, has just released an alarming report about press freedom in the DRC during the past 12 months. Entitled “Journalists and media under pressure: dangerous elections,” it has been published six weeks before a fraught presidential election that was delayed for two years. Journalist arrested on provincial governor’s orders News Reports Receive email alerts Reporter jailed in DRC for allegedly defaming parliamentariancenter_img Help by sharing this information JED registered a total of 121 press freedom violations during the 12 months ending 2 November (coincidentally the same number as during the 12 months of 2017). State agents (political, administrative or security officials) were responsible for 77% of these violations although, under articles 24 and 212 of the DRC’s constitution, the state is supposed to guarantee press freedom and protect the media. These acts of harassment against journalists and media outlets are not isolated. On the contrary, they are “part of a planned system of repression designed to silence or remove all those who annoy the regime because they do not hold the same views as its leaders,” JED says.According to the report, the number of arrests of professional journalists has increased. A total of 15 journalists were held for more than 48 hours during the past 12 months, twice as many as in 2017. They include Tharcisse Zongia, the editor of the satirical newspaper Le Grognon, who has been held for two months. Arrested on 6 September, he has been sentenced to a year in prison on a charge of criminal defamation, the maximum jail sentence for defamation in the DRC. Those recently detained also include five journalists with the tri-weekly newspaper AfricaNews, who were held for an entire day at the headquarters of the police intelligence department in Kinshasa on 19 October after reporting that an investigation was under way into the alleged misappropriation of food at a police training academy.RSF shares JED’s concern about the harassment of journalists and closure of opposition media outlets in the run-up to the presidential election scheduled for 23 December. RSF and JED also condemn the arbitrary dismissal of three journalists with the state-owned national radio and TV broadcaster RTNC – Syande Emaka, Marie Lelo and Benjamin Okakesema – for covering an opposition demonstration. Documentary filmmaker Gaël Mpoyo and his editor, Franck Zongwe Lukawa, have been in hiding for the past four months, since the screening of their documentary about the eviction of thousands of villagers from land claimed by President Joseph Kabila in the eastern province of Sud-Kivu. The Internet is meanwhile routinely disconnected before and during any major demonstration by civil society groups or government opponents.Like JED, RSF has noted the Congolese government’s failure to take any action to protect press freedom. No measure has been taken to combat abuses against journalists and media outlets during the past year, despite repeated joint requests by JED and RSF. The DRC continues to use a press law adopted during the Mobutu dictatorship in 1996 that refers cases of defamation and insult to the criminal code, under which they are punishable by prison sentences and heavy fines.Read JED’s report here.For any information:Journaliste en Danger21, av.
