The Latest Lagarde says some euro states should spend more

FRANKFURT — The Latest on Christine Lagarde’s confirmation hearing for president of the European Central Bank (all times local):12:10 p.m.Christine Lagarde, the nominee to succeed Mario Draghi as head of the European Central Bank, has said that eurozone member countries should spend more on measures that help economic growth if they can do so without breaking budget rules.Lagarde said that “there is not a lot of room but there is room that can be used in terms of fiscal policy” to boost the economy through spending on things such as broader high-speed internet coverage.The countries that belong to the euro are bound by treaty rules that are supposed to limit the size of their deficits, but the largest member, Germany, has been running budget surpluses in the face of urging from the International Monetary Fund and the U.S. Treasury to spend more.Lagarde is resigning from her job as head of the IMF after being nominated for an eight-year term beginning Nov. 1.___11:30 a.m.The nominee to succeed Mario Draghi as head of the European Central Bank has defended the bank’s record low interest rates and extraordinary stimulus measures deployed in the wake of the Great Recession and eurozone debt crisis.Christine Lagarde said during a hearing Wednesday in the European parliament in Brussels that she agrees “a highly accommodative policy is required for an extended period of time.” She also defended the bank’s new tools such as bond purchases and negative interest rates, saying they had helped create 11 million new jobs since 2013 and that without them “the crisis would have been a lot worse.”Lagarde resigned as head of the International Monetary Fund, effective Sept. 12, after European leaders nominated her for an eight-year, non-renewable term at the ECB beginning Nov. 1.The Associated Press read more

Small farmers at risk of being excluded from biofuel schemes warns UN

Current biofuel certification schemes are making it difficult for smallholder farmers to participate in export markets, according to a new report released today by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), which advocates for a change in the way these schemes are currently managed. “As structured, these schemes would tend to favour big players and provide incentives for scaling up production to absorb certification costs,” says the report, entitled Biofuels and the Sustainability Challenge, which was produced by FAO. The schemes are a way to certify that biofuels used by companies importing or exporting this type of energy source are produced in a sustainable way without destroying forests and other ecosystems. Certification is also supposed to improve businesses’ efficiency, and increase their transparency as well as their awareness of problems in the supply chain.However, the report finds that current certification schemes might exclude small farmers from achieving certification because they are mainly designed for large-scale agro-businesses. The schemes are also voluntary and for the most part are privately-operated, requiring costs and capacities that many smallholders lack. The schemes can also hinder trade and reduce access to markets for developing countries in particular, the report says. For example, while it is easy for producers in industrialized countries to comply with the demand to provide education opportunities to employed farmers, it could be much more difficult for small-scale producers in developing countries.Similarly, big companies keep financial records needed for audits while smallholders tend to keep information needed for estimations of greenhouse gas emissions in their head. As a result, many smallholders are not able to obtain certifications.“Many developing countries express concern that certification schemes can become indirect trade barriers when not managed properly,” the report said.The report suggests that to increase certification among small businesses, governments and international organizations in consumer and producer countries need to establish mechanisms that create “an enabling environment.”“Such mechanisms could include national legislation, public procurement policies, tax incentives and tax relief and start-up grants. Financial institutions also have an important role to play to support and enable schemes,” the report said.Local inspectors would also help create this environment by examining on-site conditions, thus lowering the costs for small producers.While beneficial for the environment, certification schemes must also ensure that they have a positive impact for the economy by ensuring market access and decent wages for workers, the report concluded. read more

GE announces Mutlilin 8 control platform for mining

first_imgGE has announced the availability of the first product in its new Multilin 8 Series platform, GE’s next-generation protection and control relay platform, “designed to deliver the performance and reliability required to support the mission-critical electrical infrastructures of industrial and distribution utilities.” Built on GE’s more than 100-year history in industrial electrical automation, the 8 Series platform will enable industrial and distribution utilities to enhance the reliability of their electrical infrastructure and reduce costs associated with unplanned outages. To help customers better manage their electrical systems, the 8 Series delivers improved data fidelity in current and voltage sample rates, which GE says dramatically improves electrical system visibility, providing improved post-event analysis.“We understand that our customers’ electrical infrastructures are mission critical to their operations,” said Juan Macias, General Manager, Grid Automation for GE’s Digital Energy business. “Our new Multilin 8 Series has been designed to deliver process reliability that our customers can count on to keep their operations up and running. This new platform takes advantage of advances in technology and design approach to maximise reliability and product life. We have also made significant investments in our business to ensure our manufacturing and quality processes will deliver a product that will exceed our customers’ expectations.”Designed to withstand the harsh environments typically found in the mining industry, where downtime immediately translates into lost revenue, the 8 Series leverages detailed asset diagnostics so operators can make informed, proactive decisions to reduce unplanned outages and accurately plan maintenance schedules. Using GE’s environmental awareness module to actively monitor both the environment and its own internal components, the 8 Series generates data that operators can use to make decisions about when maintenance or downtime should be scheduled, increasing operational uptime. The standard harsh conformal coating on the 8 Series’ printed circuit boards helps protect against environmental factors to help deliver higher reliability and extend product life.The 8 Series also has an integrated integrity engine that utilises customised algorithms which provide advanced diagnostics to ensure asset protection is not compromised. Coupled with the latest cybersecurity features, customers can comply with the latest NERC/CIP and NISTIR 7628 cybersecurity requirements. With many industrial processes using a variety of communication gateways, integrating a new product can potentially increase the overall system cost and downtime. GE has designed the 8 Series to include advanced and flexible communication options to make integration easier and faster.The 8 series also is backed by GE’s new 10-year warranty—a warranty program for most GE-manufactured protection, control and substation automation products sold by GE’s Digital Energy business. With an ongoing commitment to delivering world-class products that help utility and industrial customers deliver power efficiently and reliably, GE is extending its warranty terms “to assure customers around the world of its continuous commitment to quality and innovation.” The company states: “All GE protection, control and substation automation products adhere to rigorous quality processes, certified to International Standard Organisation (ISO) 9001:2008 standards, encompassing the entire product development process from product design and testing to manufacturing and customer support.”When all products in the 8 Series platform are introduced, the complete platform will include feeder, motor, transformer and generator protection that, when coupled with other GE industrial automation solutions such as industrial radios, switches and an electrical control system, will deliver a full industrial automation solution.last_img read more

Laos des singes maltraités avant dêtre vendus à des laboratoires

first_imgLaos : des singes maltraités avant d’être vendus à des laboratoiresDes dizaines de milliers de singes, en partie illégalement capturés dans la nature, seraient maltraités dans des fermes du Laos avant d’être envoyés dans des laboratoires, à l’étranger, d’après une ONG britannique. C’est l’Union britannique pour l’abolition de la vivisection (BUAV) qui a déclenché l’alerte. Selon cette ONG, des dizaines de milliers de singes dont un grand nombre ont été illégalement capturés dans la nature, seraient détenus dans des conditions épouvantables au sein de fermes au Laos. Un “élevage” qui n’aurait qu’un seul but : envoyer ensuite les animaux dans des laboratoires étrangers.Alors que le marché mondial des animaux utilisées dans la recherche se trouve en pleine expansion, le Laos aurait exporté près de 35.000 macaques depuis 2004, d’après la BUAV. Or, les “conditions épouvantables et le traitement réservé aux singes dans les fermes d’élevage (…) violent les règles internationalement admises. Certains singes ont été retrouvés morts en cage, d’autres étaient très amaigris et/ou souffrant de pertes de poils et de blessures”, explique l’organisation dans un communiqué.Le rapport indique que les primates sont d’abord vendus à des compagnies chinoises et vietnamiennes, puis livrés à des laboratoires américains et européens. Le document dénonce ainsi une “expansion rapide du commerce international des singes vivants en Asie du Sud-est depuis 2004” et appelle les Etats à agir pour lutter contre la “cruauté et le pillage des populations de macaques”.

As a result, we’ve become overly attached to digital communication, regarding “real life” communication as secondary.last_img read more
