EURISPES: Italian Navy Wins Public Consent

first_img Share this article February 4, 2015 View post tag: wins View post tag: europe EURISPES: Italian Navy Wins Public Consent View post tag: Consent View post tag: Navy According to the Institute for Political, Social and Economic studies EURISPES, in 2015 the Italian Navy consent among the Italian population comes first with a 73.5%, 5.8 % more than the previous year, and it still is on the rise.The Italian Navy innovative concept of “dual use” – meaning military as well as civil capacity – means investing in aircraft carrier Cavour, new highly technological multipurpose patrollers, and the Bergamini and Todaro class Fremm frigates.ITN Chief-of-Staff, Admiral Giuseppe De Giorgi, thus commented the positive result:This is the outcome of our men and women’s constant commitment in the past year. The Italian Navy deploys her personnel and assets in a number of operations ranging from social, humanitarian, environmental and scientific activities, besides carrying out her institutional military operations, thus honoring her dual-use vocation. This appreciation strengthen our motivation to do better, but with the same enthusiasm and dedication.The Research and Development department has the potential to boost the Italian shipbuilding industry, but also to pave the way towards new international markets for the ”Made in Italy” technologies.According to Eurispes, in terms of environment protection the Italian Navy is one of the most active institutions, the Green Fleet (Flotta Verde) project aims at implementing fuels alternative to petroleum derived ones, such as bio-fuels, and the LNG or liquefied natural gas. These highly technological energy sources will guarantee better performances against a lower environmental impact. At the same time, the Italian Navy will meet the new national and EU requirements in terms of pollutants and green-house effect reduction.Image: Italian Navy View post tag: Naval View post tag: News by topic View post tag: EURISPES View post tag: Public View post tag: Italian Navy Authorities Back to overview,Home naval-today EURISPES: Italian Navy Wins Public Consent last_img read more

Five to Interview for Vacant Seat on Ocean City School Board

first_imgOcean City High SchoolFive candidates have applied to complete an unexpired term on the Ocean City Board of Education.Each of the candidates will be interviewed during a public meeting at 5 p.m. Wednesday, July 23, in the Community Room at Ocean City High School (entrance on the beach block of Sixth Street).Each interview is expected to last about 20 minutes, and the board is expected then to vote on the appointment of one candidate to replace Pete Madden, who relinquished his seat when he took office as a city councilman on July 1.The candidates are as follows:Dale F. Braun, Jr.Michael A. JamesDavid E. PowellGregory Whelan, J.D.Edmund L. Wisham, Jr.Candidates were asked to submit letters of interest and resumes by a July 9 deadline. The school administration hopes the new board member can be sworn in as quickly as the regularly scheduled Board of Education meeting that starts at 7 p.m. July 23, immediately following the interviews.Madden was elected to a three-year term to the board in November 2013, but he was elected to City Council on May 13 (2014) and took office on July 1. The law prevents him from serving in both seats.The board voted 5-2 in May to make the new appointment after the third Monday in July — a decision that, in essence, determined that the appointee will serve 16 months before facing a potential election.If the appointment were to have been made earlier than that date, the appointee would have served only the four months until the next school board election in November 2014. State law designates the cutoff.__________Sign up for OCNJ Daily’s free newsletter and breaking news alerts“Like” us on Facebooklast_img read more

EC threat to products sold by number

first_imgOther issues affecting the organisation, highlighted at the AGM and in its annual report, include possible legislation on the mandatory fortification of bread with folic acid, salt reduction and criticism of plant bread by the Real Bread Campaign. “The government and the FSA are fully behind us and we have to make sure this legislation is changed,” said Polson. The Federation of Bakers (FoB) is so concerned by the omission that it is sending its CEO, Gordon Polson, to Brussels next month to lobby MEPs and EU officials to have the legislation amended to include products sold by number. Bakery products sold by number, such as four-packs of crumpets and six-packs of rolls, are under threat because proposed EC labelling legislation only makes provision for products sold by weight.Under current draft regulation on the provision of food information to consumers, which aims to brings together general and nutrition labelling for all pre-packed foods, there is no provision for products sold by number. The issue is one of many on the agenda of newly elected FoB chairman Mark Fairweather, who is CEO of Allied Milling and Baking. He takes over the role from Joe Street after being formally elected at the Annual General Meeting on 13 May.last_img read more

Efficient lab equipment display attracts labs community

first_imgYou no longer have to choose between cost savings and energy savings when you purchase for your lab.That’s what equipment specialists said at the “Efficient Lab Equipment Vendor Display” organized by VWR and the FAS Green Program in the basement of NW Labs last week.At the event, purchasing managers from university research laboratories met with representatives from equipment manufacturers. Several energy-efficient centrifuges, incubators and freezers were on display for researchers to learn about and compare. The newest designs cost less and use less energy. Representatives from the FAS Green Program were also on site distributing sustainability flyers, free fluorescent light bulbs and eco-friendly power strips.Energy reduction at laboratories is crucial for achieving Harvard’s greenhouse gas reduction goal of 30% by 2016. “Labs are the most energy-intensive space on campus,” Green Labs Coordinator Jamie Bemis said. While occupying only 1/4th of the university’s square footage, laboratories account for more than 1/2 the University’s total energy consumption.Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology’s Assistant Director of Research Operations Kim Foemmel was most impressed by the carbon fiber centrifuges on display. They hold larger volumes and are easier to use than older models. “It’s basically a three-in-one centrifuge,” she said. “So you’re not plugging in three, you’re plugging in one.”The new centrifuges are 15 to 30 percent less expensive than standard models. And the cost includes environmentally friendly removal of laboratories’ existing equipment.“It’s like top-of-the-line aerospace technology,” Thermo Scientific Centrifugation Team Leader Tom Egan said. “It’s not hard to believe the benefits. It’s hard to believe the cost.”A follow up event is being planned for March 9, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Bauer/Naito lobby that will be larger and provide more comprehensive information on energy efficiency.last_img read more

Smoking may increase risk of prostate cancer recurrence, death

first_imgA new study from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and University of California, San Francisco, researchers suggests that men with prostate cancer who smoke increase their risk of prostate cancer recurrence and of dying from the disease. A link also was found between smoking at the time of prostate cancer diagnosis and aggressive prostate cancer, overall mortality (death) and cardiovascular disease mortality.“In our study, we found similar results for both prostate cancer recurrence and prostate cancer mortality,” said Stacey Kenfield, lead author of the study and a research associate in the HSPH Department of Epidemiology. “These data taken together provide further support that smoking may increase risk of prostate cancer progression.”The study was published in the June 22-29, 2011, Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). It is the largest study to date to look at the relation between smoking at the time of prostate cancer diagnosis and prostate cancer-specific mortality and recurrence.Kenfield and her colleagues conducted a prospective observational study of 5,366 men diagnosed with prostate cancer between 1986 and 2006 in the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study. The researchers documented 1,630 deaths, 524 (32%) due to prostate cancer, 416 (26%) due to cardiovascular disease, and 878 prostate cancer recurrences.Compared with current smokers, men with prostate cancer who had quit smoking for 10 or more years, or who had quit for less than 10 years but smoked less than 20 pack-years before diagnosis, had prostate cancer mortality risk similar to men who had never smoked. Men who had quit smoking for less than 10 years and had smoked 20 or more pack-years had risks similar to current smokers. Read Full Storylast_img read more

Speaker brings awareness to crime of stalking

first_imgDebbie Riddle spoke Tuesday evening at Rice Commons about the crime that took her sister’s life: stalking. As a national speaker for stalking awareness, Riddle shared her sister’s experience and the steps she has taken since to prevent such as story from repeating itself in a lecture sponsored by Saint Mary’s Belles Against Violence Office (BAVO). Kathleen Donahue Riddle said 7.5 million people in the United States experience stalking, but many cases are not reported.“The majority of stalking happens between the ages of 18 to 24, the college population … and the majority of victims know their stalker,” Riddle said.Debbie Riddle’s younger sister, Peggy Klinke, met a man in 1998 when she was 28 years old and taking college classes to prepare for medical school. Three years of an emotionally and psychologically abusive relationship followed, Riddle said.Riddle said she began to see negative signs in the relationship when the man showed up uninvited at a family function.“If you have brothers and sisters, trust your guts,” Riddle said. “Because my gut feeling when I saw that man standing on the front porch of my mother’s house, and I turned and saw the look on my sister’s face, I knew in an instant this was not a good thing.”When Peggy ended the relationship, the man proceeded to stalk her, Riddle said.Riddle said the stalking experienced by Peggy began as noncriminal behaviors, including excessive phone calls and text messages, surveillance by the ex-boyfriend outside of Peggy’s work and a surprise proposal. These behaviors escalated over time, with the man spray-painting a crude phrase about Peggy on her mother’s garage doors, hanging up inappropriate posters about Peggy around town and committing arson by burning down Peggy’s boyfriend’s house.“When you see how the pattern tends to build and escalate over time, and how that pattern, the one specific reason for those behaviors is to induce fear in someone, that’s when it can be identified as illegal,” Riddle said. “Stalking is illegal in all 50 states. It is a crime.”Riddle said despite numerous reports of the man’s behaviors, the police told Peggy to wait until ‘something happens.’ Eventually a trial was scheduled and then postponed for five to six months. For her protection, Peggy and her boyfriend left New Mexico to hide in California.On Jan. 18, 2003, three weeks before the trial, the man found Peggy, Riddle said.“When the police show up at 10 p.m. on a Saturday night in my mother’s neighborhood, it is not good news,” Riddle said. “All I needed was to see the shoulder of the law enforcement officer standing on my mother’s porch to know that my sister was dead. That’s all I needed to see.”Law enforcement told Riddle that Peggy was trapped in a closet when the ex-boyfriend shot her in the back of the head and then shot himself, she said.“Being the oldest, I became the family representative,” Riddle said. “People want to know what happened, but nobody wants to ask. As people were coming in and out of the house over the next several days, I began telling that story and what had gone on and what had transpired. I realized this telling of the story was making me heal, just a little bit.”Two weeks after Peggy’s death, Riddle began taking steps to protect other women and men from stalking. The beginning of the process was when she contacted the director of Stalking Resource Center.“Six weeks into this, we have the Stalking Resource Center, the National Center for Victims of Crime, Erin Brockovich and Lifetime Television, the State Representative from New Mexico where Peggy resided, all on board,” Riddle said. “We decided to do something about this, to start talking about this, to start education.”Riddle said six months after Peggy’s death and after a congressional briefing in Washington, D.C., January was identified as National Stalking Awareness Month. Riddle continues to travel as a national speaker on stalking awareness in order to educate the general public on stalking and the reforms necessary for the protection of stalking victims.“The change had to come from both sides of the fence,” Riddle said. “You cannot just point your finger at law enforcement and say do your job better. Law enforcement needed to be educated, but the general public needs to be educated as well. If you cannot define what is happening to you, then you cannot define the crime, you will not report it. If law enforcement isn’t trained, they cannot help you. … You can go one way. You can be angry, hateful, bitter for the rest of your life, because that’s a choice. Or you can do something about this. And I decided I wanted to do something about it.”Tags: BAVO, National Stalking Awareness, stalking awarenesslast_img read more
