A Costly Diagnosis: Subsidizing coal power with Albertans' health Groups release groundbreaking report on the health and climate costs of coal power in Alberta Press Conference: Tuesday, March 26, 2013 9am MST Released: March 25, 2013 Alberta burns more coal for electricity than the rest of Canada combined. In 2012, it generated 64 per cent of its electricity by burning coal. Unfortunately, coal produces more pollution than any other source of electricity, including air contaminants such as sulphur dioxide and mercury that pose serious health risks to Albertans, as well as greenhouse gasses that have major implications for climate change and the health of future generations. This ground-breaking study found that more than 107 premature deaths and 700 emergency hospital visits per year are attributable to the health effects of pollution from coal-fired generating stations in Alberta.The report also estimates the pollution from coal plants causes 4,862 asthma symptom days (cases) per year. See the report here: http://www.pembina.org/pub/2424 Who: Asthma Society of Canada, Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, The Lung Association, Alberta & the Northwest Territories, and the Pembina Institute.

Watch Danny receive the news and the enthusiastic reaction in this ACC Must See Moment! SUBSCRIBE: http://bit.ly/Oqg3iE The Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) is a collegiate athletic conference in the United States in which its fifteen member universities compete in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA's) Division I, with its football teams competing in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS), the highest levels for athletic competition in US-based collegiate sports. The ACC sponsors competition in twenty-five sports with many of its member institutions' athletic programs held in high regard nationally. ACC teams and athletes have claimed dozens of national championships in multiple sports throughout the conference's history. Generally, the ACC's top athletes and teams in any particular sport in a given year are considered to be among the top collegiate competitors in the nation. The ACC is considered to be one of the six collegiate power conferences, all of which enjoy extensive media coverage and automatic qualifying for their football champion into the Bowl Championship Series (BCS). With the advent of the College Football Playoff in 2014, the ACC will be one of five conferences with a contractual tie-in to an "access bowl", the successors to the BCS. Founded in 1953 in Greensboro, North Carolina, by seven universities located in the South Atlantic States, the conference added additional members in late 1953, 1979, 1991, 2004, and 2013. The 2004 and 2013 additions extended the conference's footprint into the Northeast and Midwest. The most recent expansion in 2013 saw the additions of the University of Notre Dame, the University of Pittsburgh, and Syracuse University. In 2012, the University of Maryland's Board of Regents voted to withdraw from the ACC to join the Big Ten Conference. On November 28, 2012, the ACC's Council of Presidents voted unanimously to invite the University of Louisville as a full member, replacing Maryland.

Learn more about "We All Belong" and All Born (In) at http://www.allbornin.org Words are very powerful, and a little thoughtfulness when choosing words can go a very long way towards uplifting our culture, just as the thoughtless use of derogatory words fosters negativity. There are roughly half a million words in the English language- that's a heck of a lot of vocabulary to choose from. Is it really necessary to use slurs and abusive language to express yourself? Putting a little more thought into the words you choose, and making more appropriate and less hurtful choices, makes the world a better and more positive place for everyone.

Time is money: An animated infographic showing the top three economies throughout history. Does China have the world's largest economy? Is China's economy bigger than America's? Time is money–the world's largest economies throughout history. At the start of the Common Era, India was the world’s largest economy, followed by China. The far-flung Roman Empire came a distant third. A thousand years later, it looked almost the same. But third place shifted to Byzantium, in modern-day Turkey. Five hundred years after that, Italy returned, rich from renaissance trade. Over several centuries, other European powers vied for third: initially France, and then Britain. China and India swapped places. After the industrial revolution, the top three economies accounted for less than half of global output. In the 20th century, America dominated. China temporarily fell away. Russia made the top three. As did Japan. Britain dropped down. Now the modern world resembles the distant past: China and India are back, along with a single Western economy. And America’s preeminence is over. China overtakes US as the world's largest economy.

For Marshall Smith, Executive Director of the Cedars Society, the conversation around addiction has become so focused on keeping drug users alive, it's given up on teaching them how to live again. "If you had asked me when I was on the street what I wanted, I would tell you very likely what a lot of addicts in active addiction would," he says. "I wanted free drugs, I wanted a safe place to use them, and I wanted the police to go away. And likely that's what they would tell you today. If you asked me now, or any of the men in this house who are in recovery, to look back and tell you what I needed back then, I would give you a very different answer." He speaks from experience: The former chief of staff to the minister responsible for the 2010 Olympic bid, he spent years on the streets of the DTES, caught in a spiral of alcohol and cocaine addiction. He credits a "stern" intervention by the Vancouver Police with putting him on the road to recovery, and advocates a similarly aggressive approach. Smith says while there's a need for supervised injection sites they're just one piece of the puzzle, and more attention needs to go into building the longer-term system of care for addicts that gets them away from drugs. "We have been focused a lot in this province on a one pillared approach, which is harm reduction, and we need those services. But we also have to be focused on the solution to this disease, which is recovery. We need more focus on moving people along that continuum assertively." In that process lies the challenge. The current system includes scores of detox and treatment centres, provincially registered but privately operated recovery houses, local health authorities, and programs or funding through the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Social Development. It's complicated enough to have earned a description as "fragmented, uncoordinated, and inaccessible," by the Canadian Mental Health Association in a report to the legislature this summer. Smith says navigating that maze of agencies and paperwork is something he himself finds difficult, and says for someone who's high it's virtually impossible. That's something that needs to change, he says, if we want to see a long-term solution to the crisis. "We have a sort of heterogeneous grouping of individual service providers out there. We don't really have an addiction care system. We need to build that. That doesn't exist currently."

Seminar presented by Randy Guliuzza P.E., M.D. Creation Association of Puget Sound, April 19, 2012 Description: We will learn about an important and liberating new way of looking at organisms and their environment: "Programmed Filling" - a Biblically consistent and scientifically superior paradigm that explains exactly what happens at the organism-environment interface. Three points of departure mark the old and new understanding: 1) natural selection exists only as a misleading mental construct; 2) usage that acknowledges it in any way greatly dishonors the Lord; 3) programmed filling - a God-ordained, organism-centered, purpose-driven mechanism - is reality. By recognizing the explanatory power of programmed filling, believers will actually have a communicable and scientifically accurate pushback to natural selection that is just as enlightening and easy to understand. About the Speaker: Dr. Randy Guliuzza is a research scientist and captivating speaker with the Institute for Creation Research (http://www.icr.org). He presents well-documented and often humorous scientific and biblical talks to audiences of all ages. He has represented ICR in several scientific debates at secular universities and in other forums.

Visit http://www.FinTech.nl for more information on the European FinTech Awards & Conference of past April 14 edition and editions to come. ABOUT ASCRIBE Blockchain heralds a new Internet based on shared and distributed ledgers. It’s trillion dollar opportunity that is moving forward in many directions with $1B invested since 2013, 500 startups in the space and 100 enterprises exploring proof-of-concept experiments. However, overall progress is impeded by scalability and privacy concerns. To scale to the world’s needs, blockchains need to have 1,000,000x increase in throughput to handle the transaction volume and network traffic for trading, payment processing and IoT. To handle privacy concerns, blockchains need rich permissioning. Meet BigchainDB, the scalable blockchain database. ascribe has built BigchainDB, a 1,000,000 writes per second blockchain with rich permissioning that can be used for public or private networks. Our blockchain has petabytes of capacity so enterprise users are no longer constrained by the OP_RETURN field. It’s an open source blockchain for the world. Rather than trying to scale up blockchain technology, BigchainDB starts with a big data distributed database and then adds blockchain characteristics - decentralized control, immutability and the transfer of digital assets. BigchainDB fills a gap in the decentralization ecosystem: a decentralized database, at scale. It is complementary to decentralized processing platforms and decentralized file systems. We’ve proven out the technology, booked $150k in revenue with a lead customer, signed four MOUs and are in discussions with more companies to deploy BigchainDB. We are in the process of productizing the suite for a 1.0 release to both the public and private enterprises.

October 2, 2012. Intramuros, Manila. CBCP conference discusses results of an independent investigation into the Philex mine spill incident in Padcal, Benguet (see articles below). -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Segued to Land Reform issues - and Hacienda Luisita. Department of Agrarian Reform Employees' Association (Darea) challenged government's commitment to CARPer and land distribution, after years of inadequate funding, patchy implementation of projects, and job cuts as part of its ''rationalization'' efforts. In a signed petition to President Aquino, Darea also questioned item no. 5 of the Special Provisions of the Department of Agrarian Reform's Proposed Budget, which skims DAR down, transferring a significant proportion of its staff and services, including support to agrarian reform beneficiaries, to the Department of Agriculture (before many of its land distribution projects have had the chance to come into effect) . http://www.philstar.com/Article.aspx?articleId=840216&publicationSubCategoryId http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/280292/agrarian-reform-areas-not-priority-in-2013-budget-says-lawmaker -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ''SAVE CARPER: RETAIN DAR WITH A STRONG LEADERSHIP Recent developments in the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) are very disturbing. The Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP), a social justice program enshrined in the Philippine Constitution, may soon expire without substantial accomplishment. Millions of landless tillers will remain landless. Worse, thousands of DAR employees would soon be jobless. The National Secretariat for Social Action, Justice and Peace (NASSA) - the advocacy and development arm of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), in solidarity with Agrarian Reform advocates, condemns the impending move of the government to abolish DAR by 2014. NASSA is concerned with the commitment of the Aquino administration to implement the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program with Extension and Reforms (CARPER). - While the President, during his third State of the Nation Address (SONA), promised to complete land distribution under CARPER before 2014, the actual DAR accomplishment, from July 2010 to August 2012, however, is only 255,506 hectares out of the remaining 1,209,236 hectares of land committed to be distributed to farmer beneficiaries. Out of the 2012 target of 180,000 hectares plus the backlog of 74,653 hectares in 2011 or a total of 254,653 hectares, DAR accomplishment from January to August 2012 is only 42,232. This is a very dismal performance. - In terms of budget...

There is some good news from the most recent ISME Quarterly Bank Watch Survey which monitors bank credit application trends and refusal rates for Irish SMEs. SME applications for Credit is up from 32% to 44% in the quarter to end of August. The bank lending refusal rates had decreased from 52% to 42%, or put another way, 58% of SME loans were approved. One of the reasons for the increase in success is the fact that 72% of those who required funding made a formal application. The Association has been advocating this for some time and this figure has increased from 53% in the previous three months. However, not all of the survey findings showed positive developments. SMEs reported that the initial decision time has increased to just over 6 weeks with the wait to drawdown at a further 3 weeks. • 6 weeks for initial decision • Only 18% of decisions are made in one week Once again we have called on the banks to improve these wait times though increased efficiency and training.
