Next gen revolution waiting to happen at Delhi, Mumbai airport

first_imgNew Delhi and Mumbai airports will soon get environmentally friendly TaxiBots to help reduce carbon emissions. These semi-robotic vehicles will tow the aircraft from the airport gate to take-off point, thus eliminating the use of airplane engines during taxiing, significantly reducing aircraft fuel usage and the risk of foreign object damage. These TaxiBots, developed by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), are semi-robotic vehicles that connect to the aircraft and will be controlled by the pilot to taxi the airplane from the airport’s aerobridge or bay to the runway without using the aircraft jet engines. IAI announced this at the 2018 Farnborough Airshow and said it had entered into an agreement with Gurugram-based KSU Aviation for the same. “The use of TaxiBot at Indian airports in the next five years will bring about a saving of $1.5 billion to Indian carriers and reduce environmental damage of greenhouse gases by four million tons,” Yogesh Sethi of KSU Aviation said.The contract — to be executed in two phases — will consist of controlled trials at the two airports through 2018. The second phase includes delivery of 38 additional vehicles within four years to the two airports. The final tests of the vehicles made for Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) New Delhi, are presently being carried out at Frankfurt Airport in Germany.Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA) recently got a three-year extension of Airports Council International’s (ACI) Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) ‘Level 3+ Neutrality’ certification for its efforts towards reducing the carbon footprint. According to IAI, a TaxiBot would save 85% of the fuel consumed during standard taxi and provides a similar reduction of greenhouse gases emitted by the aircraft main engines. The Taxibot also claims a reduction in noise levels by 60% and foreign object damage (FOD) by 50% since they cannot be sucked into the aircraft engines if they are not running.“We trust the TaxiBot will prove itself effective in reducing air pollution, which is intensifying due to the fast growth of India’s aviation market, with the significant savings in fuel and improvement in the gates congestion. We believe this agreement will open the path for many more significant contracts for this product worldwide,” said Shaul Shahar, IAI executive vice-president and general manager of IAI’s Military Aircraft Group.As per IAI, the system does not require any modification in airplane systems, APU replacement, added weight, or cargo space. “The pilot is in control at all times after pushback using the airplane’s tiller and brakes, transparent to the pilot,” it said.last_img read more

Refrain from offering namaz on roads, says Aligarh mufti

first_imgThe chief mufti of Aligarh urged Muslims on Thursday to refrain from offering namaz on the streets, making a bid to defuse the controversy over the district administration’s recent ban on religious ceremonies on roads. Mohammad Khalid Hameed said the place for performing Friday prayers was inside a mosque. “If there is a spill over, the devout should not perform namaz on the streets and cause inconvenience to others,” he told reporters. “Instead, they could offer their prayers on rooftops of neighbouring buildings wherever convenient.” The Aligarh administration had imposed a blanket ban on holding any religious function on the roads in the U.P. district without prior permission. The authorities has taken the step as a precautionary measure to prevent any disturbance after some Hindutva groups had last week planned the recital of ‘Hanuman Chalisa’ every Tuesday.last_img read more

Serena Williams says ‘heart dropped’ at surprise pregnancy

first_imgSerena Williams was completely taken aback by her pregnancy, taking six home tests before believing she was expecting her first child, the tennis superstar told Vanity Fair magazine.Williams, who poses nude on the cover of the magazine for its August issue, said she still had not come to terms with the prospect of being a mother, and said she plans to be back on court in January.”It just doesn’t seem real. I don’t know why. Am I having a baby?” Williams, 35, said in the interview released on Tuesday.The No. 1 ranked tennis player, interviewed in May when she was six months pregnant, said she had made no preparations.”I don’t know what to do with a baby… I’ve done absolutely nothing for the baby room,” she said.Williams, who is engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, confirmed in April that she was expecting a baby in the fall after posting on Snapchat, and then deleting, a picture of herself in a swimsuit with the caption “20 weeks.”She said she would take maternity leave through the remainder of 2017.Williams told Vanity Fair she found out she was pregnant about a week before winning her record 23rd Grand Slam tournament singles title at the Australian Open in January.She said she had felt off her game but thought her hormones were acting up. A friend suggested she take a pregnancy test and when it came back positive she “did a double take and my heart dropped. Like literally, it dropped.”advertisementShe took five more home tests and later presented all six to Ohanian, who was as shocked as she was. She said her fiance now was earnestly preparing and already has a tip jar he puts money into whenever he uses profanity so he will not utter it around the baby.Williams gave no dates but said she expects to return to the circuit as soon as January, adding “I don’t think my story is over yet.”last_img read more

DeGrom Wins as Mets Blank Fish

first_imgTweetPinShare0 Shares MIAMI, FL — It took eight starts, but Jacob deGrom finally has a win in the big leagues.deGrom pitched seven scoreless innings to earn his first major league win for the New York Mets in a 4-0 victory against the Miami Marlins on Saturday.“To have a performance like that and get the win feels good,” said deGrom. “I have a lot of people here from the Daytona area, which is only about four hours away, and my whole family is here.”deGrom (1-4), who was the first Mets starting pitcher to go winless in his first seven starts, struck out seven as he allowed five hits and issued three walks.“He had all his pitches working and he was throwing them all for strikes at any count,” Mets third baseman David Wright said. “It’s a lot of fun to play defense behind him because he works so quickly and effectively.”Lucas Duda hit a two-run home run, his 10th, and Wright had three hits and an RBI for New York, which has won three of four.It was the second shutout in the series for the Mets as Zack Wheeler tossed a 1-0 shut out on Thursday.“Right now we’re in a little bit of a spell where we’re not able to get the consecutive hits and get a little bit of a rally going, but we will,” Marlins manager Mike Redmond said.Jeurys Familia pitched the eighth and Jenrry Mejia came in for the ninth to preserve the shut out.Marlins starter Tom Koehler (5-6) retired the first 11 batters he faced before allowing two runs and four hits in seven innings while striking out eight.“It was nice to get through seven and get out of the jam in the sixth, but at the same time it’s a little frustrating giving up those two runs and not really getting those bunts down — that’s really kind of eating at me right now,” Koehler said.Miami second baseman Rafael Furcal left the game in the fourth inning with a left calf and hamstring and injury after grounding out to end the third. Furcal, who missed the first 2 1-2 months of the season with hamstring and groin injuries, was scheduled to have an MRI after the game.“It definitely doesn’t sound good,” Redmond said.Before the game shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria was scratched from the starting lineup with soreness in his elbow on his throwing arm, but could be in the lineup on Sunday.“He was availabe if we needed him to hit, I think the throwing was the biggest concern for him today, but I’m anticipating him being ready for tomorrow, but we’ll see,” Redmond said.Chris Young hit a two-out single in the fourth to give the Mets a 1-0 lead and Wright singled home a run in the sixth for a two-run advantage.Miami’s best opportunity to score came in the sixth after Giancarlo Stanton stole third base with one out, but deGrom retired the next two batters to end the threat.“He made some real, real good pitches with his slider today, and he used his change-up to right handers effectively today,” Mets manager Terry Collins said. “He certainly deserved to win.”Duda’s home run to right field came off Chris Hatcher in the ninth inning to give the Mets a 4-0 cushion.NOTES: Marlins teammates Garrett Jones and Jeff Baker celebrated their 32nd birthdays today. … Mets RF Curtis Granderson has reached base safely in his last 30 starts. … Mets LHP Jonathon Niese (3-4, 2.67) will take the mound in Sunday’s series finale against Miami RHP Anthony DeSclafani (1-1, 5.60).last_img read more

Further engagement with Sudan needed on UN Darfur force peacekeeping chief says

“There was not enough engagement,” Jean-Marie Guéhenno, Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations, told the press after briefing the Security Council on his discussions with Sudanese President Omar al Bashir and other African leaders on the margins of the African Union (AU) Summit meeting held in Banjul earlier this month. In his talks with President al Bashir in Banjul, Secretary-General Kofi Annan said that there was agreement on the need to immediately strengthen the AU mission in Darfur (AMIS) and to consolidate the peace accord in that region, which has seen scores of thousands of people killed and over 2 million displaced.However, the Sudanese President’s agreement on the deployment of a UN force, which peacekeeping officials have said was needed by January 2007 to fully implement the peace accord, was not secured in the talks, Mr. Guéhenno said, although progress had been made in dispelling any notion that such a force would have any “colonial” or other hidden objectives.“The international community is interested in Darfur because it is interested in helping the people of Sudan and the Government of Sudan in establishing the authority of the State and peace and security throughout the territory,” the peacekeeping chief said he stressed.Mr. Guéhenno also emphasized that further engagement with the Government was needed. “I think we need to continue that discussion, because clearly the Government of Sudan has to be a part of the solution.” In any case, he said it was important to strengthen AMIS and make sure that the situation in Darfur does not deteriorate in the next six months, and for that reason he said he had highlighted to the Council the importance of a conference aimed at supporting the AU mission, to be held on 18 July in Brussels. read more

Five things to know about Canadas carbon pricing landscape

Five things to know about Canada’s carbon pricing landscape Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced a national “floor price” on carbon Monday that would require all provinces and territories to have some form of carbon pricing by 2018.Here are five things to know about putting a price on carbon:Why a carbon price?Putting a price on carbon is meant to give people and companies an incentive to look for lower emission options to save money. The price can come in the form of a specific tax or levy, like the minimum $10 per tonne the federal government has set for 2018, or a more indirect cap-and-trade system.Which provinces have a carbon tax in place?British Columbia introduced a carbon tax in 2008 and it now stands at $30 a tonne, adding an extra 6.67 cents to each litre of gasoline and 7.67 cents to each litre of diesel. In August, the province said it would stick to that price until other jurisdictions catch up.Alberta announced last November it will have a $20-per-tonne carbon levy in place next year, rising to $30 a tonne in 2018. For both provinces, the tax applies to gasoline, diesel, natural gas and propane.What are the alternatives?Quebec joined California in a cap-and-trade carbon market in 2014, and Ontario is set to start trading in the same market next year. Cap-and-trade systems set economy-wide limits on emissions and then establish a carbon market, within which industries are allotted permits for emissions that they can buy and sell, with the costs passed on to consumers.The federal government says provinces that go this route have to set emissions caps that correspond to how much a specific carbon price is expected to reduce emissions.Where does the money go?Provincial governments that have implemented carbon taxes get to keep that revenue, while the federal government said it will also return funds from any federally-imposed carbon tax to the jurisdiction of origin.British Columbia’s system is designed to be revenue neutral, meaning the government will take in no extra money from the tax and instead return it through tax cuts and credits. Alberta’s system returns some of the costs to lower-income consumers in the form of a rebate, and small business taxes have been reduced from three per cent to two per cent to help offset costs. But about two-thirds will go towards spending more generally on diversifying the economy, including on renewable energy, transit infrastructure and energy efficiency measures.Who is exempt?Alberta and B.C. have several exemptions to the tax, such as those that apply to the agricultural sector and some air travel. Large emitters in Alberta including oilsands operations fall under a different system that sets specific emission reduction goals.The federal government said any carbon pricing should minimize competitiveness impacts and avoid simply driving emitting industries abroad, particularly for trade-exposed sectors. by The Canadian Press Posted Oct 3, 2016 2:45 pm MDT Last Updated Oct 3, 2016 at 3:31 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Mother who lost four children in house fire dies after 20month fight

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. However, her mother said in June that she had taken a “turn for the worse” and that her condition was “critical.”The trial at Manchester Crown Court heard Bolland had been involved in a “petty” feud with Mrs Pearson’s 17-year-old son Kyle over damage to a car, prompting a series of tit-for-tat attacks.A jury was told Bolland and Worrall were fuelled by drink and drugs as they filled two glass bottles with £1.50 of petrol bought from a local garage, stuffing the tops with tissue paper as they prepared the attack at 5am on December 11 2017.Two lit petrol bombs were thrown inside Kyle’s mother’s home after the kitchen window was smashed.Bolland hurled his bottle which “exploded” near the stairs, blocking the only exit to the ground floor and trapping the victims upstairs.Within seconds, flames engulfed the three-bedroom mid-terrace home.Mrs Pearson, then 36, woke up and screamed “Not the kids! Not my kids!” and dialled 999, but she was overcome with heat and smoke before completing the call.Kyle Pearson managed to escape with a friend, Bobby Harris.In light of her death, Greater Manchester police (GMP) said they would be reviewing the investigation and consulting with the Crown Prosecution Service. The mother of four children killed in a petrol bomb attack has died, more than a year-and-a-half after being injured in the blaze,  as police said they would review the investigation into the arsonists.Michelle Pearson, 37, suffered severe burns in the blaze and had been in hospital since the fire in December 2017 in Walkden, Greater Manchester.Her mother, Sandra Lever,  broke the news to friends on Facebook on Monday, writing: “Sadly last night, after a hard 20 months of fighting our beautiful Michelle gained her wings and went to join her babies.”The blaze claimed the lives of siblings Demi Pearson, 15, her brother Brandon, aged eight, and sisters Lacie, aged seven, and Lia, aged three.In May, Zak Bolland and David Worrall, then 23 and 25, were each convicted of four counts of murder and jailed for life, with minimum terms of 40 and 37 years respectively, while Courtney Brierley was jailed for 21 years for manslaughter.Mrs Pearson was put into an induced coma after suffering 75 per cent burns to her body. She appeared to be recovering in February of this year, when she was filmed outside a hospital releasing heart-shaped balloons in a tribute to her children.She was seen in a wheelchair, with a tracheostomy tube in her neck and both legs in casts.  Det Supt Lewis Hughes from GMP said:  “As the senior investigating officer for the investigation into the fire, I know first-hand how devastating the death of her four children was for Michelle and the news of her passing is incredibly tragic.”“I would like to extend my sincere condolences to Michelle’s loved ones at this terrible time.”  read more

LETTER Crime situation becoming unbearable

Dear Editor,Within recent times there are constant reports from every section of the media on daily armed robberies, home invasions, carjacking and wanton lawlessness. These acts are becoming so prevalent and done with such impunity, several times each day, that it is only a matter of time before they become acceptable as social norms.They will be become ingrained as acceptable social behaviours, because those who are responsible for the preservation of law and order are either often found being actively involved in criminal behaviours and those that are not involved are least concerned. Civil society is then left defenseless to the mercy of those who chose to wreak havoc on their lives.It takes the average Guyanese more than courage and brevity to live in this society. It borders on luck, but how long will it last for those who have not yet suffered from these brazen acts of violence and mayhem? The only consolation from the agency whose motto is “to protect and serve” is the nice statistics that crime is on the decline, and the usual conclusion on every media report that “an investigation has been launched”, and thereafter faded into permanent obscurity.Yours faithfully,Selwyn Narinedatt Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedLETTER: Society must share blame for brutal rape, murder of Berbice teenSeptember 28, 2017In “Letters”Pharma scandal: GTUC calls for $605M sole sourcing probeMarch 18, 2017In “Business”LETTER: Sad situation when persons with Degrees are robbing banksJuly 4, 2017In “latest news” read more
