France vs Croatia: Mario Mandzukic scores first own goal in World Cup final

first_imgCroatia’s Mario Mandzukic on Sunday achieved a dubious record when he was guilty of scoring an own goal in the FIFA World Cup 2018 final in Moscow.Mandzukic became the first player to score an own goal in a World Cup final when he headed Antoine Griezmann’s free-kick into his own net in the 18th minute.This was also and unfortunately 12th own goal of a record-breaking tournament in Russia.Griezmann’s free kick brushed the top of Mandzukic’s head and sailed over his own goalkeeper to give France a 1-0 lead at the Luzhniki Stadium. However, Ivan Perisic levelled 10 minutes later but Croatia’s joy was shortlived as Antoine Griezmann converted a penalty in the 38th minute to France a 2-1 half-time lead.FRANCE VS CROATIA FIFA WORLD CUP FINAL UPDATESMandzukic had scored the extra-time winner for Croatia against England in Wednesday’s semi-final to send them through to the final. Mario Mandzukic scored an own goal in the 18th minute of the France vs Croatia FIFA World Cup 2018 final in Moscow (AP Photo)It was harsh on Croatia, who had made most of the running, and they were on top again after the break, continually winning their one-on-one duels in the air and in every tackle and forging forward in the French box with plenty of variety.But France’s defence, so impressive all tournament, held and they went 3-1 up on the hour as Mbappe and Griezmann combined to set up Pogba on the edge of the box. His right-footed shot was blocked but he coolly curved the rebound in with his left.advertisementAfter three successive extra-time knockout games the chances of another Croatian comeback seemed slight but they looked dead and buried six minutes later. Lucas Hernandez tore down the left to set up Mbappe who drilled a low shot beyond keeper Danijel Subasic for the 19-year-old’s fourth goal of the tournament.An awful blunder by Hugo Lloris revived Croatia, as the French keeper tried to dribble around Mandzukic only for the striker to tap the ball straight into an unguarded net.Mandzukic also became the second player in World Cup history to score a goal and an own goal in a single match after Ernie Brandts for the Netherlands against Italy in 1978.Ahead of the final, fans were treated with a glittering closing ceremony.The colourful ceremony was headlined by Hollywood star Will Smith, who performed along with Nicky Jam and Kosovian artist Era Istrefi.The artists performed the tournament’s official song, “Live it Up” in front of a jam-packed stadium.As Smith performed at Moscow’s Luzhniki stadium, giant screens laid out on the pitch showed images of soccer players and the colours of the Croatian and French flags – the two teams who face each other in the final.In the final sequence of the ceremony, Russian opera singer Aida Garifullina performed Russian folk song “Kalinka” accompanied by bagpipes, a children’s choir, and a percussion section.That section featured a guest performer: Brazilian soccer star and past World Cup winner Ronaldinho, who for a few bars of the song hammered out the rhythm on an African drum.Meanwhile, French President Emmanuel Macron and Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic were also in attendance to cheer their respective teams.(With inputs from Reuters)last_img read more

Why Tielemans failed at Monaco & why he’ll be reborn at Leicester

first_imgYouri Tielemans was in the right place at the wrong time. Joining Monaco in the summer of 2017 was supposed to be his big step in the right direction.He has long been regarded as the breakout star-in-waiting of Belgian football and the Ligue 1 champions should have been the perfect move. But that summer Monaco were hollowed out.Headlining the departures was wonderkid Kylian Mbappe, who moved to Paris St-Germain on a controversial loan deal. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Manchester City picked up both Bernardo Silva and Benjamin Mendy, and Tiemoue Bakayoko joined Chelsea.The standard of those players coming in – overall – was not as high and Monaco had no chance of overhauling PSG and repeating their feat of winning the French championship and remaining competitive in the Champions League.And within a remodelled squad, Tielemans struggled to find his place.The return of Leonardo Jardim and the subsequent departure of the young Belgium midfielder this month are very much in sync. Jardim is a naturally conservative coach and prefers to play with two deep midfield players to stymie opposition attacks.The platform of Bakayoko and Joao Moutinho in the title-winning team gave Bernardo, Mbappe and Radamel Falcao the freedom to win games.Youri Tielemans BelgiumTielemans though is a very different kind of footballer to Bakayoko. While he can win the ball adeptly, he is primarily a playmaker with an eye for goal. A midfield of Tielemans and Moutinho was not built to coexist, certainly not in a Jardim system.He made only 19 starts in his first season at Monaco and never truly convinced. And this season – though Tielemans has played more often – things all around him have plummeted.Once Moutinho was sold to Wolves, Monaco simply did not have enough quality in the squad any more. Thierry Henry, who replaced Jardim, was often forced to play with unproven young players before his harsh dismissal last week.As such, Tielemans had no one to play with.TielemansHe is a tempo-setter; the kind of player who makes others play better. But he requires a well-functioning unit around him. As has proven with Monaco, he is the type of player who can fail in the wrong system.However, Leicester City fans should be excited by this signing. He is a premium talent and one who could very well go on to world class level. They are picking him up at a time when his stock is not at its highest, but he should not be written off as damaged goods.He will come into the Leicester line-up and immediately dictate the play. He should slot in alongside Wilfried Ndidi but see a lot more of the ball than the Nigerian. That is if Puel can be persuaded to ease Namplays Mendy out of the lineup. Leicester fan frustration has centred on the team’s inability to get the ball moving effectively through the midfield and to connect the defence and attack. Tielemans is a progressive option in this sense and should bring about an improvement.He is comfortable receiving a pass to feet in midfield with his back to the opposition goal and excels in turning with the ball either left or right. He has a happy knack of being able to go past people in midfield and that should help Leicester tilt the numbers game further up the field. And if Tielemans finds himself with a chance to strike at goal, expect him to take it. He possesses a goal threat from distance.Youri Tielemans Belgium Philippe Coutinho BrazilTielemans may only be 21 but already has vast experience. He started in the Anderlecht first team aged only 16, like Romelu Lukaku before him, and captained the team when he won his second Belgian title at the age of 20.He forced his way into Roberto Martinez’s Belgium squad for the World Cup last summer and featured in their most memorable victory at an international tournament, that being the win against Brazil in the quarter finals.Those who have worked with Tielemans speak of a top mentality and describe him as a midfielder who is technically gifted. His range of passing – short or long – is unerring and that should help a Leicester team attempting to become more possession-based under Claude Puel. He will be tasked with becoming the main man.Monaco might well come to be regarded as a mis-step but the move to Leicester will reinvigorate him. This could well be a game-changing signing.

BC Ferries 2nd Salish Ferry Sets Sail for British Columbia

first_imgzoom The second of three new liquefied natural gas (LNG) -powered Salish Class vessels, ordered by Canadian ferry owner and operator BC Ferries, departed Gdansk, Poland on February 11 bound for its new home in British Columbia.Currently sailing the 10,440-nautical-mile journey, Salish Eagle is expected to arrive at its destination in April for crew training and familiarization.The dual-fuel ship is scheduled to start service in the Southern Gulf Islands in the summer of 2017.The Transatlantic voyage will take around 45 to 55 days, depending on weather, and including stops for refuelling in Santa Cruz, Canary Islands and Panama City, Panama, after transiting the Panama Canal and sailing up the west coast of North America to British Columbia.“We are looking forward to introducing all three new Salish Class vessels into service this year, which will serve British Columbians for decades to come,” Mike Corrigan, BC Ferries’ President and CEO, said.“We plan to operate these ships on natural gas, which will improve our environmental footprint and reduce our operating costs,” Corrigan added.The company will take final acceptance and ownership of Salish Eagle upon final inspection once the vessel arrives at its destination.BC Ferries’ first vessel from the batch, the Salish Orca, arrived in British Columbia on January 11, 2017, after a 50-day journey from Gdansk, Poland. The new ship will start service on the Comox-Powell River route in the spring of 2017.The 107-meter Salish Class ships will carry 145 vehicles and up to 600 passengers and crew. With a gross tonnage of 8,728 tons each, the vessels feature two car decks and have a service speed of 15.5 knots.last_img read more

Family of missing BC cowboy makes emotional appeal for information

first_imgMERRITT, B.C. — The family of a ranch manager who went missing near Merritt, B.C., is asking for information nearly three weeks after the 32-year-old was last seen.Ben Tyner has been the manager of the Nicola Ranch in B.C.’s southern Interior since November and was last seen Jan. 26 when he rode out of the ranch, possibly to search for cattle in the surrounding hills.His mother, father and brother have been in Merritt but are returning to their Wyoming home and have made an emotional appeal asking for tips about Tyner’s whereabouts.The saddled horse ridden by the experienced cowboy was found wandering two days after he vanished and a search began but was called off Feb. 3 as snow and frigid weather descended on the province.Members of the RCMP’s major crime unit continue to investigate, but police say there is no indication of foul play.Tyner’s mother Jennifer says her son loves life and the family is hoping for any information that can help find him.“To say that we are heartbroken is an understatement. Our hearts are shattered and our lives have been thrown into turmoil,” she said at a news conference Wednesday in Merritt.“To think that I will never again see his smile, or hear his infectious laugh, never see him realize his dreams, never have him wrap his arms around me again, is unthinkable.” (CHNL)The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Negotiators told the world is ready for climate change deal as UN

The United Nations Climate Change Conference opened today in Warsaw, Poland, with a call to reach a new agreement to cut climate-altering greenhouse gas emissions during what is seen as a pivotal point in the negotiating process, made all the more urgent by the devastation in Philippines from Typhoon Haiyan.“We must win the Warsaw opportunity,” Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), told participants at this 19th session.She noted that “the world is ready” and there is a groundswell of climate action, not only for the environment, but also for security, energy, economic and governance reasons. “A new universal climate agreement is within our reach,” said Ms. Figueres, noting that agencies, development banks, investors and subnational governments are on board. “Parties can lead the momentum for change and move together towards success in 2015,” she said.The UNFCCC is an international treaty which considers what can be done to reduce global warming and to cope with whatever temperature increases are inevitable. The two-week conference, being held through next Friday at the National Stadium in the Polish capital, brings together the 195 Parties to the UNFCCC, the parent treaty of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol. Over the course of the next two weeks, delegates will attempt to hammer out a universal UN-backed treaty on climate change by 2015 which would enter force by 2020.In her speech, Ms. Figueres highlighted the key areas in which the Conference of the Parties (COP-19) can make progress.“We must clarify finance that enables the entire world to move towards low-carbon development,” she said. “We must launch the construction of a mechanism that helps vulnerable populations to respond to the unanticipated effects of climate change.”Also addressing today’s open, the newly elected President of COP-19, Polish Environment Minister Marcin Korolec, noted that climate is a global issue, global problem and global opportunity at the same time. “It becomes opportunity where we can act together. One country or even a group cannot make a difference. But acting together, united as we are here, we can do it,” he said.The conference takes place against a backdrop of devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan where the UN World Food Programme (WFP) fears that 10,000 people have perished. The Philippines’ lead negotiator, Yeb Sano, called the climate crisis “madness” and urged the international community to act.“We can stop this madness. Right here in Warsaw,” Mr. Sano said. “Typhoons such as Haiyan and its impacts represent a sobering reminder to the international community that we cannot afford to procrastinate on climate action.” He also decried the concept of a “natural disaster” stating in a news release from the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) that “it is not natural when people continue to struggle to eradicate poverty and pursue development and get battered by the onslaught of a monster storm.” Ms. Figueres, Mr. Korolec and other participants have extended their thoughts and prayers to the people in South-East Asia affected by the typhoon, particularly those in the Philippines and Viet Nam. The UNFCCC Executive Secretary also highlighted that “we are the first human beings to ever breathe air with 400 parts per million CO2,” a reminder that the air has reached the highest level of carbon dioxide in at least three million years. read more

Garden Bridge which cost the taxpayer more than £50m was a failure

The London Garden Bridge, which cost the taxpayer more than £50 million, was “a failure for charity” that undermines public trust, the Charity Commission has ruled.The watchdog branded the mothballed project a “high profile and expensive failure” which “never materialised”, in a report published by Tuesday.Around £53 million of public money was spent by the registered charity, the Garden Bridge Trust, which was set up to build and run the London crossing over the River Thames.The commission added that the waste of taxpayers’ money by the charity, which “produced no demonstrable public benefit or impact, represents a failure for charity which risks undermining public trust”.Baroness Tina Stowell, chairwoman of the Charity Commission, said: “Londoners and taxpayers will legitimately feel angry and let down by the waste of millions of pounds of public money on a charitable project that was not delivered.”I understand that anger and am clear that this represents a failure for charity that risks undermining public confidence in charities generally.”While the charity was not mismanaged, the public would also expect, as I do, that the right lessons are learnt from this case, so that we don’t see a similar failure arising in future.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. London mayor Sadiq Khan killed off the controversial plan for the bridge covered with trees and flowers in August 2017, after a damning report by Dame Margaret Hodge found it could have ended up costing more than £200 million.At the time former mayor Boris Johnson, who supported the Garden Bridge, claimed his successor had “killed it out of spite”.The commission said it advises policymakers should “think very carefully before setting up an entirely new charity to deliver a singular public project or purpose”, adding that it is “unlikely the public would expect risks that are inherent in a major public infrastructure project to be outsourced to such a charity”. read more

Biohydromet 16 Conference

first_imgBiohydromet ’16 was the eighth International Symposium on Biohydrometallurgy organised by MEI with consultants Prof Sue Harrison, Dr Patrick d’Hugues and Dr Chris Bryan and it was sponsored by Outotec, with International Mining as media partner. There were 65 delegates from 19 countries at the St. Michael’s Hotel, Falmouth, UK.The technical sessions got underway with a keynote presentation from Frank Roberto of Newmont Mining, who discussed the commercial heap bio-oxidation of refractory gold ores, revisiting Newmont’s successful deployment at Carlin, the parameters that influenced performance of the on-off heap bio-oxidation process, and factors that led to the discontinuation of the operation. The potential for in-situ bioleaching to extract metals from deep-buried sulphide ores via the BioMORE concept is interesting and in the second paper of the day Eva Pakostova, of Bangor University, UK, described the BioMOre design concept, and presented data from experiments in which a polymetallic ore (Talvivaara, Finland) and copper-rich kupferschiefer (Rudna mine, Poland) have been subjected to indirect bioleaching under laboratory conditions. Results confirm the possibility of using such an approach for deep in situ biomining of base metal ores. Jarno Mäkinen of VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland explained that uranium ores occasionally contain remarkable concentrations of phosphorus minerals. and although phosphorus is a valuable element, it is easily lost in traditional uranium processes; moreover it can disrupt the uranium recovery. He showed how bioleaching was used to recover uranium and phosphorus separately from an artificial uranite-fluorapatite ore and the potential for winning both uranium and phosphorus from complex, impure ores, increasing their value and utilization possibilities.Sarah Smith gave the second Bangor University paper of the morning. She explained how the world-wide demand for cobalt is increasing significantly as a result of its use in electronics, chemicals and super-alloys for example, and lack of suitable alternatives necessitates the development of novel cobalt extraction and recovery technologies. She discussed the oxidative and reductive bioprocessing of cobalt bearing ores, and the recovery of cobalt minerals via biosulphidogenesis.Bioleaching of metal sulfides in a presence of chloride is still very problematic but Marek Kaszuba, of TU Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany, showed how leaching is possible with Ferrimicrobium acidiphilum.High voltage breakage (HVB) has the ability to pre-weaken ore by inducing micro-fractures along grain boundaries. It has been suggested that there may be beneficial effects on mineral leaching via improved grain accessibility using HVB over mechanical comminution alone. Conference consultant Chris Bryan, of the University of Exeter, reported on the first ever investigation of the effect of HVB on bioleaching, discussing the work, carried out in collaboration with Swiss company Selfrag AG, in the context of energy input, breakage mechanism, ore permeability and potential disruption of galvanic interactions.The University of Cape Town (UCT) had five presentations this week, all co-authored by MEI Consultant Sue Harrison. In the first of these papers, Elaine Govender-Opitz showed how recent studies of microbial growth within heap leaching systems have found higher microbial populations associated with the mineral (interstitial liquid and ore phases) than in the bulk flowing pregnant leach solution. However, little information on microbial growth rates on low-grade whole ore during the start-up phase of heap and column leaching is available. Recent work at UCT has extended the knowledge base of growth and activity of mesophiles on low-grade ore in a simulated heap bioleaching environment.Micro-organisms with importance to mineral biotechnology are commonly maintained through subculturing, which can be labour intensive and expensive. Subculturing can also result in contamination, genetic drift and loss of traits or whole strains. Naomi Boxall, of CSIRO, Australia, presented results of a study aimed at determining the best method for the preservation of mixed microbial cultures capable of bioleaching chalcopyrite under salt stress.A second paper from the University of Cape Town discussed how microbial colonization of mineral ore is critical in efficient mineral solubilisation for metal recovery via biohydrometallurgy. Didi Makaula described the use of isothermal microcalorimetry to measure the metabolic activity of the mineral-associated microbial community in bioleaching. This was followed by three papers from Germany. Simone Schopf of TU Bergakademie Freiberg discussed comparative genomics on Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans, and Sabrina Hedrich of Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources discussed the development of molecular assays to efficiently monitor and quantify microbial species during bioleaching of copper-rich ores. In the final paper of the day Fabian Giebner, of TU Freiberg, discussed the toxicity of leaching additives on the respiration activity of Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans.The merger of the BIOX, ASTER and HiTeCC technologies with Outotec Finland was completed in November 2015 (covered in IM’s gold recovery article in August). This was a significant step for the three technologies as the technologies are now owned by Outotec. The second morning’s keynote paper was given by Jan van Niekerk, Senior Manager of BIOX, Outotec South Africa. The paper focused on three main points: 1. An update on the status of the current operating BIOX and ASTER plants; 2. Feedback on the progress with the commissioning of BIOX and ASTER plants and the Runruno gold project in the Philippines; and 3. The expanded technology and equipment offering being developed by Outotec.The use of oxygen is a well-known practice in high-temperature bioleaching reactors, whereas air is usually preferred in medium and low-temperature operations due to economic constraints. Under high-sulphide loading conditions, as is the case with high-grade metal sulphide concentrates, the microbial and chemical demand for oxygen is significantly increased during the bioleaching process, which requires the injection of large amounts of air and thus increases the energy costs of the process. Anne-Gwenaelle Guezennec, of BRGM, France, showed how sparging with oxygen enriched gas instead of air may offer an interesting alternative process option to improve gas transfer in the bioleaching reactor and to provide an adequate oxygen supply in order to satisfy the oxygen demand. Stoyan Gaydardzhiev, of the University of Liege, Belgium, discussed the role of solution potential on the reductive leaching of Co(III) from oxide ore in the presence of mesophilic bacteria and added pyrite, suggesting a flowsheet encompassing ferrous/ferric iron cycling supported by bacteria/pyrite interaction as a means to control solution redox potential.The dissolution of mineral sulfide concentrates in bioreactors at 45 to 55°C is more rapid than at lower temperatures. While it is not as rapid or efficient as at higher temperatures, it utilizes moderately thermophilic bacteria that remain active at solids concentrations that inhibit extreme thermophiles. Paul Norris, of the University of Exeter, UK discussed factors that could be used to select the most useful bacteria for copper and nickel concentrate processing at temperatures above 50°C.Finland has several mineral deposits where gold is the main commodity. Finnish gold ores are often refractory, requiring pretreatment prior to cyanide leaching to enhance gold recovery. Sarita Ahoranta, of Tampere University of Technology, Finland showed how bio-oxidation is a commercially viable pretreatment method that improves gold availability to cyanidation, resulting in savings in the overall process.Susan Reichel, of G.E.O.S. Ingenieurgesellschaft mbH, Germany, then discussed how lithium can be recovered from lithium-containing micas using sulfur oxidizing microorganisms. In another paper from Germany, Sophia Kostudis, of the Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology, explained that the European Kupferschiefer deposits constitute a challenging local resource of base metals such as copper. She summarised research results on bioleaching of copper from Kupferschiefer ore in neutral to alkaline environments.Biooxidation is a technology employed for pre-treatment of refractory gold concentrates prior to cyanidation. Biooxidation utilises a microbial community to regenerate pyrite-leaching agents, thereby liberating gold for extraction. Historical process upsets suggest that the microbial community is sensitive to thiocyanate (SCN-) at concentrations as low as 1 mg/litre. Catherine Edward, of the University of Cape Town, described a study focusing on Acidithiobacillus caldus, a predominant sulphur oxidiser within the bio-oxidation community, and its tolerance to elevated concentrations of SCN- (> 1 mg/litre).Chris Bryan, of the University of Exeter, discussed the microbial ecology and solution chemistry of interstitial and flowing liquid phases during the bioleaching of a low-grade sulphide ore.Mingjian Zhang of the General Research Institute for Nonferrous Metals, China, showed how the collaborative bioleaching of chalcopyrite by Alicyclobacillus and acidophiles could increase the efficiency of the acidophiles.The north-central part of Portugal has a promising potential in lithium ores from pegmatites and aplite-pegmatites that have been exploited solely for the production of quartz and feldspar. Bioleaching of lithium ores or concentrates seems to be an interesting process, although little is known about this subject. Cristina Vila, of the University of Porto, described preliminary exploratory studies on the bioleaching of a pegmatite lithium ore from the Gonçalo area.This was followed by two papers from China’s Central South University. Jin-Lan Xia described a study on microbe-mineral interaction and their molecular mechanism based on synchrotron radiation techniques and then presented results on a comparative study of S, Fe and Cu speciation transformation during chalcopyrite bioleaching by mixed mesophiles and mixed thermophiles.In the final paper of the day Cristina Povedano-Priego, of the University of Granada, Spain, presented work on the fungal biomineralization of pyromorphite and cerussite on the surface of lead metal, showing that fungi contribute, together with abiotic factors, to the biomineralization of pyromorphite, a very stable form of lead useful for the bioremediation of lead contaminated sites. The final day of the conference dealt with environmental aspects, intending to overlap with the Sustainable Minerals ’16 conference that followed (see tomorrow’s post).In the first paper Ana Santos, of Bangor University, UK, discussed acid mine drainage, one of the most important problems affecting mining companies around the world, and the potential for remediation of acidic metal-rich waste waters using sulphidogenic bioreactor sustained by algal biomass. Acidic waters draining active and abandoned mines are usually rich in sulphate which can complex aluminium to form oxy-hydroxysulfates, which are toxic to many organisms. Carmen Falagan, also of Bangor, presented results on a study aimed at testing the hypothesis that it is possible to remove aluminium from contaminated acid waters via biosulfidogenesis.As discussed by Alex Opitz, of University of Cape Town, the rate of acid rock drainage generation is exacerbated by the regeneration of lixiviates by iron- and sulphur-oxidising micro-organisms. Microbial action is excluded from current ARD characterisation and prediction methods. The recently developed UCT biokinetic test provides initial rate information on acid neutralising and acid generating behaviour of waste samples under microbially-mediated conditions. To date, a mixed mesophilic culture containing iron- and sulphur-oxidising micro-organisms in a non-microbially limited environment has been used to study the ARD generating behaviour of waste samples, the findings indicating potential configuration of waste coal dumps.Shafiq Alam, of the University of Saskatchewan, presented a paper discussing the treatment of mine-site polluted water through biosorption.Waste materials from metal mining, such as mineral tailings, often contain significant amounts of potentially valuable metals, particularly where, as in many historic operations, the efficiency of flotation technologies used to concentrate target minerals was not as great as at present. In a third paper this morning from Bangor University, Carmen Falagan discussed new approaches for recovering metals from such mine wastes.Continuing with this theme, Shreya Ghosh of Siksha O. Anusandhan University, India, showed how manganese recovery from mining waste can be enhanced by using a mixed culture of indigenously isolated bacterial strains.Pyrometallurgical processes for sulphide concentrates produce slag that contains metals as carry-over impurities. Anna Kaksonen, of CSIRO, Australia, showed how varied quantities of the metal content can be solubilized from the slag through chemical or bioleaching. Production of high grade steel also generates vast amounts of slag, which is a potential source of valuable elements such as vanadium, and Viktor Sjöberg of Örebro University, Sweden, discussed work on the bioleaching of steel slag for metal recovery.In the final paper of the morning Axel Schippers of BGR Hannover, Germany showed that there is economic potential for reprocessing copper mine tailings in Chile. Anita Parbhakar-Fox, of the University of Tasmania, presented the first paper of the final session on a study aimed at evaluating if reprocessing is a viable option for managing the historic Old Tailings Dam in Western Tasmania. The dam contains 38 Mt of pyritic material, and is actively generating acid and metalliferous drainage. Consequently, the water quality of the adjacent Savage River has been impacted, with elevated copper relative to international drinking water standards measured downstream. Several processing options have been evaluated including bioleaching.Danilo Borja Padilla is from Equador, and is currently doing an MSc at the Chonbuk National University, Republic of Korea. He presented work on the continuous tank bioleaching of mine tailings, containing high amounts of arsenic, by a mesophilic bacterial culture. As explained by Michael Schlömann of TU Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany , some bacteria are able to live in the presence of arsenic, because they have different mechanisms to deal with the toxicity of this metalloid. She discussed a screening assay on siderophore production and extraction, developed to evaluate the capacity of metabolites formed to bind arsenic.Coal waste generates much acid mine drainage, so reducing coal waste storage by finding new uses for the waste is attractive. Beatriz Firpo, of the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, showed how coal waste can be used as one of the components of plant growing medium, namely fabricated soils, cultivated with Panicum maximum.Following this final paper of the conference, MEI consultant Sue Harrison, of the University of Cape Town, summarised the event. Biohydromet ’18 is hoped to be held in Windhoek, Namibia, in June 2018.The conference draft papers are available from MEI and authors have been invited to submit their final papers to Minerals Engineering, for a special biohydrometallurgy issue which will be published early next year.last_img read more

How to Find the Right Payment System

first_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global 1. Prioritize Anytime, Anywhere PaymentsFrom Joey Rault, head of enterprise sales, SquareIf you’re a quick-service or retail franchise, a traditional sale means a customer is entering a physical store and purchasing an item. But customers’ expectations of convenience keep getting higher, so we’re seeing many of the franchises on Square leverage self-service kiosks, e-commerce, and mobile apps to facilitate payments anywhere. For example, we work with Ben & Jerry’s, and if you’re a franchisee, a great place to sell is outside the store in the summer, or at the local high school football game. When you’re looking for a merchant service provider, be sure to choose one that can, in any circumstance, allow you to accept all forms of payment: mag stripe, chip cards, mobile payments, and gift cards. You’ll also want to consider how the provider presents data, which is critical to understanding your customers. Whether your annual revenue is $500,000 or $500 million, connecting the dots on customer data from different channels — in-store, events, e-commerce, mobile — may be difficult, especially if you have a different service provider for each. When a customer swipes a card, Square logs a record of that transaction associated with that customer’s name. Every future transaction will automatically show up there, and the franchisee can get to know not only that customer but also her purchase habits, like whether she typically buys in-store or online. This kind of information can guide future decisions that will be critical to a franchisee’s top-line revenue and scalable growth.Related: How to Streamline Your Company’s Purchasing2. Look for a Holistic ApproachFrom Steven Johnson, franchisee, Mr. Appliance Mr. Appliance, a Texas-based operation with more than 275 locations, offers in-home and in-office appliance repairs. Almost a decade ago, longtime franchisee Steven Johnson partnered with payment processor CardConnect because of its… a. Data. Easy-to-access transaction records are vital to Mr. Appliance’s business. Johnson uses CardConnect’s portal to pull up invoice numbers, purchase amounts, and transaction entry numbers, which makes it easier to reconcile invoices with proof of payment. b. Communication. Johnson values CardConnect’s quick response rate. If there’s ever a platform issue or the company can’t determine how a payment was processed, he says, his CardConnect representative replies right away.  c. Personalized service. Johnson’s business recently enjoyed a growth spurt, and CardConnect notified him that the increase in processed payments qualified Johnson for additional savings on American Express transactions. “Three-fourths of a percent might not sound like a lot,” he says, “but we do more than $15,000 a day in credit card sales.”Related: A Good Accountant Is Key to a Good Franchise Operation. Here’s How to Find One. 3. Unexpected SuccessFrom James Meeks, CEO, MOVE SystemsWhat he expected: After the 2014 launch of his sustainable mobile food-cart company, Meeks signed on with Clover, a payment processing system that prides itself on personalization and could help him secure payment hardware that would withstand the bumps and thumps of a jostling food cart. What he got: In addition to hardy hardware, Meeks was able to customize the checkout experience through Clover’s integrative app store, which can help manage loyalty programs or encourage end customers to round up their purchase total for charity. 3 min read Register Now » July 9, 2019 This story appears in the July 2019 issue of Entrepreneur.

Whole-brain white matter tractography is performed after voxelwise tensor calculation, and the density of fibers that connect each pair of cortical ROIs is used to calculate structural connectivity. T1w = T1-weighted.Patients with the most common form of focal epilepsy have widespread, abnormal connections in their brains that could provide clues toward diagnosis and treatment, according to a new study published online in the journal Radiology.Temporal lobe epilepsy is characterized by seizures emanating from the temporal lobes, which sit on each side of the brain just above the ear. Previously, experts believed that the condition was related to isolated injuries of structures within the temporal lobe, like the hippocampus. But recent research has implicated the default mode network (DMN), the set of brain regions activated during task-free introspection and deactivated during goal-directed behavior. The DMN consists of several hubs that are more active during the resting state.To learn more, researchers performed diffusion tensor imaging, a type of MRI that tracks the movement, or diffusion, of water in the brain’s white matter, the nerve fibers that transmit signals throughout the brain. The study group consisted of 24 patients with left temporal lobe epilepsy who were slated for surgery to remove the site from where their seizures emanated. The researchers compared them with 24 healthy controls using an MRI protocol dedicated to finding white matter tracts with diffusion imaging at high resolution. The data was analyzed with a new technique that identifies and quantifies structural connections in the brain.Patients with left temporal lobe epilepsy exhibited a decrease in long-range connectivity of 22 percent to 45 percent among areas of the DMN when compared with the healthy controls.”Using diffusion MRI, we found alterations in the structural connectivity beyond the medial temporal lobe, especially in the default mode network,” said Steven M. Stufflebeam, M.D., from the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.In addition to reduced long-range connectivity, the epileptic patients had an 85 percent to 270 percent increase in local connectivity within and beyond the DMN. The researchers believe this may be an adaptation to the loss of the long-range connections.”The increase in local connections could represent a maladaptive mechanism by which overall neural connectivity is maintained despite the loss of connections through important hub areas,” Stufflebeam said.The results are supported by prior functional MRI studies that have shown decreased functional connectivity in DMN areas in temporal lobe epilepsy. Researchers are not certain if the structural changes cause the functional changes, or vice versa.”It’s probably a breakdown of myelin, which is the insulation of neurons, causing a slowdown in the propagation of information, but we don’t know for sure,” Stufflebeam said.Stufflebeam and colleagues plan to continue their research, using structural and functional MRI with electroencephalography and magnetoencephalography to track diffusion changes and look at real-time brain activity.”Our long-term goal is to see if we can we predict from diffusion studies who will respond to surgery and who will not,” he said.For more information: RadiologyInfo.org Image courtesy of Imago Systems Technology | Interventional Radiology | August 16, 2019 Profound Medical Receives U.S. FDA 510(k) Clearance for Tulsa-Pro Profound Medical Corp. announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to… read more News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… read more News | Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 First Patient Enrolled in World’s Largest Brain Cancer Clinical Trial Henry Ford Cancer Institute is first-in-the-world to enroll a glioblastoma patient in the GBM AGILE Trial (Adaptive… read more center_img Technology | Neuro Imaging | August 07, 2019 Synaptive Medical Launches Modus Plan With Automated Tractography Segmentation Synaptive Medical announced the U.S. launch and availability of Modus Plan featuring BrightMatter AutoSeg.

achieving the medium-term target for consumer price index (CPI) inflation of 4 percent within a band of +/- 2 percent while supporting growth The main considerations underlying the decision are set out in the statement below Assessment 2 Since the last meeting of the MPC in April global economic activity has continued to expand though there has been some easing of momentum Among advanced economies (AEs) the US economy began the year on a weak note on soft private spending and reduced residential investment; however there seems to be a rebound in Q2:2018 with strong retail sales and improved employment data The Euro Area growth decelerated in Q1; recent industrial production data as well as weak consumer and business sentiment suggest a loss of pace The Japanese economy contracted in Q1 though it is expected to turn around in Q2 as indicated by recent data prints on exports and the manufacturing purchasing managers’ index (PMI) 3 Economic activity in major emerging market economies (EMEs) remained largely resilient The Chinese economy maintained a strong momentum in Q1; more recent data on industrial production and PMI suggest that growth is likely to hold steady in Q2 The Russian economy appears to have picked up in recent months after a soft end to 2017; both manufacturing and services PMI rose in April In South Africa growth prospects have improved with the return of political stability as reflected in consumer confidence manufacturing PMI and retail sales In contrast a stream of poor data from Brazil on high unemployment and soft industrial production show that the effects of recession linger File image of RBI Governor Urjit Patel AFP 4 Global trade growth has continued to strengthen though geo-political tensions have contributed recently to declining export orders and air freight Crude oil prices rose sharply till 24 May on heightened geo-political tensions but moderated thereafter on expectations of easing of supplies by the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and Russia Base metal prices especially aluminium have risen on account of US sanctions on Russia Gold has witnessed selling pressure on a stronger dollar but the metal gained last week on political uncertainty in the Euro Area Inflation pressures have emerged in some key advanced and emerging economies driven in part by rising commodity prices 5 Financial markets have been driven mainly by monetary policy expectations and geopolitical developments Equity market performance has varied across regions with modest gains in the AEs on strong Q1 earnings and abating of trade tensions while stocks in major EMEs have faced sell offs on a rising dollar and expectations of further rate hikes by the Fed The 10-year sovereign yield in the US crossed 3 percent in mid-May on strong economic data as well as expectations of tighter monetary policy and fiscal expansion but softened subsequently on safe haven demand; yields softened in other key AEs as well In most EMEs however bond yields have risen on reduced foreign appetite for their debt due to growing dollar shortage in the global market and on prospects of higher interest rates in AEs In currency markets the US dollar touched its highest level in May since December 2017 The euro depreciated significantly against the dollar reflecting a combination of factors including soft growth data for the Euro Area which suggested that monetary policy normalisation by the European Central Bank could be delayed and political uncertainty in its southern periphery EME currencies have by and large depreciated against the US dollar 6 On the domestic front the Central Statistics Office (CSO) released on 31 May the quarterly estimates of national income accounts for Q4:2017-18 and provisional estimates for 2017-18 Gross domestic product (GDP) growth for 2017-18 has been estimated at 67 percent up by 01 percentage point from the second advance estimates released on February 28 This increase in growth has been underpinned by a significant upward revision in private final consumption expenditure (PFCE) due especially to improved rural demand on the back of a bumper harvest and the government’s thrust on rural housing and infrastructure Quarterly data suggest that the economy grew at 77 percent in Q4:2017-18 – the fastest pace in the last seven quarters Gross fixed capital formation (GFCF) growth accelerated for three consecutive quarters up to Q4 7 On the supply side estimates of agriculture and allied activities have been revised upwards supported by an all-time high production of foodgrains and horticulture during the year On a quarterly basis agriculture growth increased sharply in Q4:2017-18 On April 16 the India Meteorological Department (IMD) forecast a normal south-west monsoon rainfall which was reaffirmed on May 30 This augurs well for the agricultural sector 8 Industrial growth also strengthened reflecting the robust performance of manufacturing which accelerated for three consecutive quarters in Q4 Capacity utilisation by manufacturing firms increased significantly in Q4:2017-18 as revealed in the latest round of the Reserve Bank’s order books inventories and capacity utilisation survey (OBICUS) The output of eight core industries accelerated in April on account of a sharp expansion in coal production which reached a 42-month peak Cement output also posted double-digit growth for the sixth consecutive month in April However electricity generation slowed down As per the early results of the Reserve Bank’s April-June round of the industrial outlook survey (IOS) activity is expected to expand at a lower rate in Q1:2018-19 due to a significant rise in input prices and perceptions of softening domestic and external demand conditions However the manufacturing PMI remained in an expansionary mode for the tenth consecutive month in May on the back of new domestic orders and exports 9 Although services sector growth was revised downwards on account of lower growth in some constituents such as trade hotels transport & communication and financial services it remained robust Construction activity recorded the highest growth in Q4 in the new series (base 2011-12) Various high frequency indicators also suggest resilient performance of the services sector Improving sales of tractors and two-wheelers suggest strengthening of rural demand Commercial vehicle sales also accelerated in April Revenue-earning freight traffic of railways picked up driven by improved movement in coal fertilisers and cement Growth in passenger vehicle sales accelerated but port traffic decelerated for the third successive month in April Domestic air passenger traffic rose significantly in April Two key indicators of construction activity showed improvement – cement production growth accelerated and steel consumption turned around Services PMI moved slightly into contraction in May reflecting decline in business activity and stagnation in new orders 10 Retail inflation measured by the year-on-year change in the CPI rose sharply to 46 percent in April driven mainly by a significant increase in inflation excluding food and fuel Excluding the estimated impact of an increase in house rent allowances (HRAs) for central government employees headline inflation was at 42 percent in April up from 39 percent in March Food inflation moderated for the fourth successive month pulled down by vegetables due to lower than the usual seasonal increase in their prices and pulses and sugar which continued to experience deflation However within the food group inflation increased in respect of cereals fruits prepared meals meat and fish 11 Fuel group inflation declined for the fifth month in a row in April mainly on account of a fall in the inflation of liquefied petroleum gas in line with international prices and electricity However inflation in other major items of fuel such as firewood and chips dung cake kerosene and coal inched up Inflation in the transport and communication sub-group accelerated due to the firming up of international crude oil prices even though the domestic pass-through to petrol and diesel was incomplete Inflation also picked up in clothing household goods and services health recreation education and personal care and effects 12 The May 2018 round of the Reserve Bank’s survey of households reported a significant rise in households’ inflation expectations of 90 basis points (bps) and 130 bps respectively for three-month and one-year ahead horizons Manufacturing firms polled in the Reserve Bank’s IOS reported input price pressures and an increase in selling prices in Q1:2018-19 Firms polled for the manufacturing PMI in May also showed a sharp increase in input and output prices Farm inputs and industrial raw material costs have risen sequentially Wage pressures in the rural sector moderated; however those in the organised sectors remained firm 13 Liquidity in the system remained generally in surplus during April-May 2018 During April the Reserve Bank absorbed surplus liquidity of 496 billion on a daily net average basis due to increased government spending especially in the second half of the month Reflecting easy liquidity conditions the weighted average call rate (WACR) softened to 589 percent in April (from 596 percent in March) However surplus liquidity in the system moderated considerably in the first half of May and the system moved into deficit in the third week of May mainly due to inflows on account of the goods and services tax (GST) The Reserve Bank conducted an open market operation purchase auction on 17 May 2018 to inject liquidity of 100 billion into the system The system again turned into surplus in the last week of May reflecting mainly the payment of food subsidies Surplus liquidity absorbed under the LAF on a daily net average basis declined to 142 billion in May The WACR in May at 588 percent remained broadly at the April 2018 level 14 India’s exports grew in April 2018 after a marginal dip in the preceding month supported mainly by non-oil exports particularly engineering goods and chemicals Import growth decelerated sequentially in April 2018; a significant decline in imports of gold as well as pearl and precious stones more than offset the impact of rising crude oil prices Nevertheless the trade deficit expanded in March and April from its level a year ago External financing remained comfortable in 2017-18 While net foreign direct investment in 2017-18 was broadly comparable with the previous year net foreign portfolio flows were stronger due to a sharp turnaround in debt inflows However foreign portfolio investors withdrew US$ 67 billion on a net basis from the domestic capital market in 2018-19 (up to 4 June) reflecting volatility in global financial markets India’s foreign exchange reserves were at US$ 412 billion on June 1 2018 Outlook 15 The first bi-monthly resolution of 2018-19 in April projected CPI inflation in the range of 47-51 percent in H1:2018-19 and 44 percent in H2 including the HRA impact for central government employees with risks tilted to the upside Excluding the impact of HRA revisions CPI inflation was projected at 44-47 percent in H1:2018-19 and 44 percent in H2 Actual inflation outcomes since the April policy have evolved broadly on the lines of the projected trajectory However there has been an important compositional shift While the summer momentum in vegetable prices was weaker than the usual pattern there was an abrupt acceleration in CPI inflation excluding food and fuel 16 The headline inflation outlook is driven primarily by two countervailing effects On the one hand CPI inflation excluding food and fuel rose sharply in April over March by 80 basis points to reach an ex-HRA level of 53 percent suggesting a hardening of underlying inflationary pressures Furthermore since the MPC’s meeting in early April the price of Indian basket of crude surged from US$ 66 a barrel to US$ 74 This along with an increase in other global commodity prices and recent global financial market developments has resulted in a firming up of input cost pressures as also confirmed in the Reserve Bank’s IOS for manufacturing firms in Q2:2018-19 The resulting pick-up in the momentum of inflation excluding food fuel and HRA has imparted persistence into higher CPI projections for 2018-19 On the other hand food inflation has remained muted over the past few months and the usual seasonal pickup delayed softening the projections in the short run Taking these effects into account projected CPI inflation for 2018-19 is revised to 48-49 percent in H1 and 47 percent in H2 including the HRA impact for central government employees with risks tilted to the upside Excluding the impact of HRA revisions CPI inflation is projected at 46 percent in H1 and 47 percent in H2 17 Turning to the growth outlook the CSO’s provisional estimates have placed GDP growth for Q4:2017-18 at 77 percent – 70 basis points higher than that in Q3 – given the sharp acceleration in investment and construction activity With improving capacity utilisation and credit offtake investment activity is expected to remain robust even as there has been some tightening of financing conditions in recent months Global demand has also been buoyant which should encourage exports and provide a further thrust to investment The sharp rise in petroleum product prices however is likely to impact disposable incomes Consumption both rural and urban remains healthy and is expected to strengthen further According to the early results of the Reserve Bank’s IOS activity in the manufacturing sector is expected to moderate marginally in Q2:2018-19 on account of deterioration in the overall business situation and order book On the basis of an overall assessment GDP growth for 2018-19 is retained at 74 percent as in the April policy GDP growth is projected in the range of 75-76 percent in H1 and 73-74 percent in H2 with risks evenly balanced 18 A major upside risk to the baseline inflation path in the April resolution has

Florida have little in common But each has had difficulty mounting an effective response to HIV/AIDS at a time when neighboring countries or states buoyed by recent research advances have made progress toward bringing their epidemics to an end Five of the main metrics that public health experts track to gauge progress against HIV are: How many people are living with the virus What is the rate of new infection What percentage of infected people are receiving antiretroviral drugs which both stave off disease and prevent transmission How many infected people have progressed to AIDS and how many have died from it And how many children are infected by their mothers Much of the world has seen encouraging declines on many of those fronts But Nigeria Russia and Florida stand out from their neighbors and in some cases the entire world None of these three locales has high numbers on every one of these measures But each ranks first—an unenviable distinction—in at least one of the five metrics assessed by total cases rates or proportions The aim of this package is not to shame Russia Nigeria or Florida or given their profound differences in population politics and economies to compare them head-to-head Rather these stories describe the distinct challenges that have hampered each locale’s response to HIV/AIDS And they highlight people who are confronting those shortcomings and coming up with tailor-made local solutions Science produced these stories in collaboration with the PBS NewsHour which is airing a companion five-part series Reporting for this project was

Comparing epidemics It’s difficult to compare HIV/AIDS epidemics from one place to another because of differences in population size These radar graphics capture this complexity by charting five different measures for each country or state The graphic below compares Nigeria Russia and the United States with the rest of the world in raw numbers Although Russia has roughly the same number of people living with HIV as the United States the paucity of treatment means many more deaths from AIDS and many more new infections South Africa has more HIV-infected people than any other country and more people receiving treatment which explains why it has fewer deaths and fewer newly infected children than Nigeria does A relatively small country like Mozambique (one-sixth the size of Nigeria) stands out because it has a large number of infected people per population HIV/AIDS by country (2016) Choose a country to see how Nigeria Russia and the United States compare to: Countries where data

Georgia has the highest rates of new infection but half the population of Florida New York has a larger infected population but has a lower death rate and fewer new infections The United States only

newcomers In a BuzzFeed profile company executives detail an upcoming initiative called Project Lightning that will lead to an increased focus on surfacing interesting content around live events Each day users will be able to access a curated set of media centering around seven to ten events within the Twitter app The events could be big television broadcasts such as the Super Bowl or breaking news such as the protests in Ferguson Mo For each event Twitter will use a team of human editors to select the best tweets photos videos and Periscope live-streams to present to users who can swipe through each piece of content one by one Twitter users will also be able to follow these events and temporarily see a stream of curated tweets related to the event in their timelines After the event is complete tweets from accounts a user isnt explicitly following will no longer appear in his or her feed The new feature seems similar to Live Stories on Snapchat which curate a rolling set of photos and images from users based on a single event Critically the event feeds will be available to users who are not logged into Twitter as well The company which has faced slow user growth since its IPO has long argued that much of its value comes from those people who see tweets embedded on other websites or when surfing Twittercom while logged out Write to Victor Luckerson at
