Digital ad spends to grow by 31% by 2021: Report

Digital ad spends to grow by 31% by 2021: Report

first_imgMumbai, Oct 4 (PTI) Growing internet penetration and data consumption is likely to help increase digital advertisement spends in India at a compounded rate of 30.8 per cent between 2016 and 2021, according to a recent report.Further, mobile advertisement spends and social media aided digital video advertisement spends are expected to grow at 50.9 per cent and 40 per cent annually between 2016 and 2021 respectively, said the Digital First Journey report by KPMG.Enablers such as governments Digital India initiative, growing usage of affordable smartphones, rising internet penetration in rural India and rapid growth of digital payments has further strengthened the digital infrastructure.This has resulted in video dominating data consumption, which is expected to continue to grow in the near future, it noted.”There are about 200 million online video viewers in India currently, which is set to exceed 400 million in the next couple of years. Although the catalyst for online video boom was Reliance Jio, the trend now has wings of its own. With data set to be the dominant source of revenue for the telcos, and possibly home broadband seeing traction in the future, the video consumption growth is here to stay,” said Gaurav Gandhi, chief operating officer, Viacom 18 Digital Ventures said.The report also noted the over the top (OTT) content consumption is evolving from niche to mass based content and long form content is gathering traction, with investments in large screens, and original content creation.It further said while Advertisement Video on Demand (AVOD) remains the primary source of monetisation for the OTT players in the country, the Subscription Video on Demand (SVOD) and Freemium models are seeing traction on the back of compelling content, including sports.advertisementSponsored content has also emerged as an important monetisation tool, the report added.The growth in monetisation though, is partially held back due to challenges around digital viewership measurement and rampant content piracy, the report stressed.Digital video businesses require high investments, and returns are currently not commensurate given the still evolving business models.Media organisations are currently attempting to bridge the gap between market share acquisition and economic viability, as they attempt to build long term sustainable digital video businesses, it added.

Prince Harry Launches Fundraising Project In Lesotho

Prince Harry Launches Fundraising Project In Lesotho

first_imgPrince Harry launched a major new fundraising project for his charity Sentebale recently and said he hoped his late mother Diana, Princess of Wales would be “proud” of his efforts.Prince Harry talks to guests at a drinks reception at the Sentabale Gala dinner at the Summer Place in Sandton, JohannesburgCredit/Copyright: http://www.princehenryofwales.orgPrince Harry mentioned his late mother as he gave a speech at a gala dinner in South Africa after spending three days in neighbouring Lesotho where his organisation works to help disadvantaged children.The charity aims to raise £2.5 million to build the Mamohato Centre, which will expand the charity’s service of providing psychological care and peer mentoring for children and young people with HIV/AIDS.It will be built on the sacred land of Thabu-Bosiu in Lesotho, known to many as the birthplace of the nation.At the Summer Place, a luxury function venue in the heart of Johannesburg, wealthy potential benefactors were invited to the dinner which ended with a charity auction.Prince Harry told his guests which included his charity co-founder Lesotho’s Prince Seeiso: “Over the past few years our Mamohato programme has begun the process of transforming the lives of children living with HIV.“I have met some of the children who have attended the Mamohato Camps, and they have so much more confidence and knowledge of how to live healthy lives.“With the new Mamohato Camp we will be able to reach four times as many children each year. It will also be the centre for training new staff and volunteers for our expansion in southern Africa.”The Prince, who used public transport to travel from the airport into Johannesburg earlier, on South Africa’s new Gautrain service, added: “The programme encourages children to talk to one another, to learn about the disease, and spread word of their learning through a safe support network. Talking about HIV and understanding it isn’t dangerous. Denying it, or not knowing about it, definitely is.”Speaking about the naming of the new centre Prince Harry said: “It seems only right that it should be named after His Majesty (of Lesotho) and Prince Seeiso’s mother, Queen Mamohato Bereng Seeiso.“She was so loved as the mother of the nation. I hope she would be proud of what we are trying to achieve in her name.“I hope that my mother will be proud, too. Maybe, just maybe, they are together somewhere up there, with blue prints and sketches already mapped out. I can only hope we put the swings in the right place.”FHM magazine model Bonang Matheba hosted the evening and joked she wanted to get The Prince dancing.The famous South African presenter wore a white dress and said: “I told him he should loosen up and have some fun – I will show him some South African dances.”Source:PrinceHarryOfWales.orglast_img read more

Inuk Elder taken into custody after defying Muskrat Falls injunction

Inuk Elder taken into custody after defying Muskrat Falls injunction

first_imgTrina Roache APTN National NewsAn elder and long-time environmental activist in Labrador has been taken into custody after defying a court injunction related to the Muskrat Falls hydro project.Emotions were high in the courtroom as 79-year-old Jim Learning refused to sign an undertaking to stay one kilometre away from Muskrat Falls.“It was a powerful moment,” said land protector Denise Cole. In a phone interview with APTN, her voice shook with emotion as she described what happened when Learning told the judge he would never agree to the injunction.“Jim tells [the judge] what he does have to do is fight for this river,” said Cole. “He talked a lot about how unfair all of this is, that it isn’t right. He said, ‘We can’t win in your system. The only thing we can do is give our lives.’ And that’s exactly what he intends to do.”Learning was arrested at a Muskrat Falls protest in 2013. He went on a hunger strike, until he was released from the correctional centre in Happy valley-Goose Bay six days later.“He says he’ll hunger strike again,” said Cole. “He says he won’t concede.  Jim has always been prepared to die for this.”After the sheriff’s took Learning away, Cole said there were “huge outbursts” from others in the courtroom, who were either facing charges themselves, or had come to support the land protectors, like Tracey Doherty.“Tracey stood up and spoke about how wrong this is and Nalcor should be the one on trial,” said Cole. “The whole province is screaming for an audit, yet they still don’t have to listen to anybody. There’s no consequences for Nalcor.”Nalcor Energy obtained the court injunction last fall as rallies against Muskrat Falls picked up steam. The dam is still under construction and the injunction is intended to keep people from interfering with operations. A protest area has been set up across the road from the main gate, where land protectors have maintained a presence off and on for months.But Cole said, as a water keeper, she’s been doing ceremony at that river since 2012 and a court injunction shouldn’t be able to interfere with that.“I have a responsibility to the land and the people, the spirits of my ancestors are there,” said Cole. “They can’t make me stop doing ceremony any more than they can keep a Christian out of the church.”Cole herself is among those facing civil charges in court Friday. After consulting with Learning and others, she’d decided to sign the undertaking so she can continue to fight the project.But she says many are willing to go to jail.“There’s no more fear,” said Cole. “We have nothing left to lose.Despite 37 people facing criminal charges and 50 people facing civil charges, Cole said the land protectors are determined despite feeling crippled by the court injunction.“We keep rising up and fighting back. I’m hurt, but I’m angry and I’m empowered,” she said. “I’m having a really strong fight with the warrior and the water keeper in me.  I want to fight for my elders, for my people, but I have to find a different way to fight back.”The main concern that sparked the demonstrations last year were focused on methylmercury. A 2015 Harvard University study indicated that trees and topsoil left in the reservoir when flooded will create the toxin and contaminate traditional food sources downstream.As well, geological instability in an area of the dam called the North Spur have raised concerns about structural integrity and what would happen to communities downstream in the event of a dam breach.Massive flooding did occur this spring. The community of Mud Lake was evacuated. Nalcor Energy pointed to ice jams as a natural cause of rising water levels. But critics are calling for an investigation.And the Muskrat Falls project, set to be up and running in 2020, is billions of dollars over budget, with the costs now soaring to $12 billion. Nalcor Energy CEO Stan Marshall himself, has repeatedly called it a “boondoggle.”“This isn’t just about a hydro project,” said Cole. “This is about methylmercury. This is about flooding and drowning and poisoning and killing of culture and taking away a traditional way of life that they have every right to have whether they’re Indigenous or Canadian. We’re not supposed to be policed like a martial law.”In June, there was public outcry after Inuk grandmother Beatrice Hunter spent eleven days in a St. John’s jail for not promising to obey the same court injunction.Senators Murray Sinclair and Kim Pate had released a joint letter to express their “extreme disappointment” over Hunter’s “unjust incarceration.”“Protesting is a basic civil right, not a crime justifying imprisonment,” wrote Murray and Pate. “She harmed no one and was motivated only by love and a sense of duty. She is a steward of land, the very land that the government failed to engage and consult about when the Muskrat Falls development was being planned.”troache@aptn.ca@TrinaRoachelast_img read more

Ohio State wrestler Logan Stieber wins 3rd consecutive national championship

Ohio State redshirt-junior Logan Stieber takes down Notre Dame College sophomore Maurice Miller in the 141-pound match Nov. 15 at St. John Arena. OSU won, 29-11.Credit: Ethan Day / Lantern photographerFor the third straight year, Logan Stieber is the nation’s best.The Ohio State redshirt-junior wrestler became the first Buckeye in program history to win three national titles after defeating No. 4-seed Virginia Tech redshirt-junior Devin Carter Saturday in the 141-pound weight class in Oklahoma City.“(This) feels great,” Stieber said after the victory, according to an OSU press release. “I know Devin is a really, really tough individual … It felt good to get through my offense and ride hard. And my defense was great and I just kept getting after him.”Stieber, a three-time All-American and three-time Big Ten Champion, earned the crown in what was his 21st consecutive match win after jumping out to a 2-0 lead by the end of the first period. Entering the third period with a 5-0 advantage, a pair of takedowns helped him secure the 10-1 win.Stieber wasn’t the only Buckeye wrestler to compete for a national title, as senior Nick Heflin fell in the 197-pound weight class final to Missouri freshman J’Den Cox, 2-1.Heflin, also a three-time All-American and 2014 Big Ten Champion, narrowly missed out on the title as he almost scored a takedown when time expired. That would have given him a 3-2 victory, but after an official review, the call was confirmed.In the team competition, OSU finished sixth after totaling 57 points. Penn State won its fourth straight national championship after finishing with 109.5 points as a team. read more

Contribute to the annual survey of how minersexplorers rate the investment climate

Contribute to the annual survey of how minersexplorers rate the investment climate

first_imgThe Fraser Institute, a Canadian economic think tank, is now conducting its annual survey of how miners and explorers rate the investment climate of jurisdictions around the world. The results identify the countries, states, and provinces whose mining policies and taxation structure are predictable and transparent and thus create the lowest barriers to investment in the mining sector. You are invited to participate in the 2010 Survey of Mining Companies send an email to miguel.cervantes@fraserinstitute.orgThe institute says the survey creates accountability and transparency in mining policy. “No longer can political leaders or NGOs use bad policy to frustrate development and cost the industry many millions of dollars without the public knowing about it.”The results of the summer update survey can be downloaded at: http://www.fraserinstitute.org/research-news/display.aspx?id=16438Mining ministries around the world pay close attention to the survey. In particular, the interest shown by Canadian public officials has helped put most Canadian provinces at the top of the policy heap, though more work needs to be done. With the survey attracting strong attention across the world, the survey has become an important tool for improving mining policy globally.Government officials may not fully understand the impact of policy decisions and find the survey a highly useful source of information. Many say they use the survey to determine weak spots in their regulatory regime and correct them.The institute says you “can complete the survey on line in less than 15 minutes.” To thank you for your participation, it will send you a free copy of the survey when it is released and automatically enter you in a draw to win C$1,000.The survey is produced by the Fraser Institute’s Global Centre for Mining Studies. It says “miners often face badly designed regulatory/taxation regimes and ill-informed opposition from some NGOs. The Fraser Institute believes the best tonic for misinformation and poorly designed policy is good research backed by objective evidence, vigorously communicated.”The institute’s Global Centre for Mining Studies’ mission is threefold:1) Measure the impact of mining and exploration, positive and negative, on prosperity, employment, the environment, infrastructure, and other indicators of well-being2) Develop best-practices frameworks that benefit local communities and the mining and exploration industry. Without profits and the incentive to invest, the industry cannot produce the minerals the world needs and the investment crucial to so many nations3) Create public support for sound mining and exploration policies through a strong communications program.last_img read more

Englands last working slate mine best tourism experience

Englands last working slate mine best tourism experience

first_imgEngland’s last working slate mine, which diversified into tourism to stay in business, is now in the running to be named best tourism experience in the country. The Via Ferrata Experience at Honister slate mine in the Lake District, has been shortlisted as the country’s Best Tourism Experience in the national Enjoy England Awards 2012, to be revealed in Leicester on May 22. Via Ferrata (Iron Way in Latin) takes place high on the crags of the spectacular 650 m Fleetwith Pike, in the Borrowdale Valley near Keswick.It involves people secured by harness and watched over by trained mountaineers edge along an historic cliff-edge miner’s “route-to-work” using metal ladders, hand rungs and bridges to reach a stunning summit viewpoint over Buttermere and Crummock.Via Ferrata were established in the First World War to help troops with no climbing experience, get quickly through the mountains in the Alps and Italian Dolomites. There are Via Ferrata experiences in Switzerland and Austria, but Honister’s is the only one in England.Last summer it was named Best Tourism Experience in the Lake District at the Cumbria Tourism Awards.The Via Ferrata was introduced at Honister by the late mine owner Mark Weir, to help people who don’t climb, enjoy the drama and exposure of mountaineering. Weir, who rescued and revitalised the mine in the mid-1990s after it had lain derelict for a decade, was tragically killed when his helicopter crashed in high winds at the mine back in March 2011.It meant his partner Jan and mother-of-his three children were left to keep the business afloat with his elder brother Joe Weir, and mum Celia Taylor-Weir.The Via Ferrata has links back to the hardships of the original Victorian miners who used the same high altitude walkways as a route to get to and from work.As well as being popular with visitors, it has been widely acclaimed, with BBC presenter Julia Bradbury declaring it “brilliant.”Jules Brown, writing in the Rough Guide to England, said: “I’m a scaredy-cat as far as exposed heights are concerned – so edging along metal rungs on a rock face over 2,000 ft up, is probably the most challenging thing I’ve ever done.”“I went with a friend who has walked in the Dolomites and has been on one of the original “iron ways” over there. He reckoned Honister is just as amazing, tough and exciting. Our Rough Guide verdict? The Lake District’s biggest thrill – don’t even think of coming to Honister and missing the Via Ferrata.”Honister has already received an accolade from national tourism body Visit England, which sent out an undercover tourism inspector to road-test the business on behalf of customers. It passed with flying colours and was praised for its excellent standards. They found: “No other English attraction is quite like Honister mine. This is a unique experience and has great development potential.“The owner’s vision has done so much for the area and can be seen as a perfect example of how pro-active visitor experiences can be linked to industrial sites. Honister is not in any sense Disneyfied. Tunnels are damp, the floors are uneven but the experience is quite outstanding. There can be no doubt whatsoever that the insight into the Lake District’s industrial world which still exists in a modified form, but was once a major industry, is fascinating.”Honister Slate Mine is situated over 300 m up a mountain pass in the Lake District on the fourth highest road in England. It officially opened in 1643 but mining is believed to have taken place there since early Roman Times.The mine and visitor centre, is also homage to all things slate in what was once one of the Lake District’s traditional industries. In particular, you can see products made from the beautiful “Westmorland Green,” slate which is over 450 million years old and renowned for its high quality, hard-wearing distinctive olive-green colour.In addition to the Via Ferrata, you can also take a fascinating guided mine tour inside Fleetwith Pike todiscover the history of the miners of old.In a sign of the times for slate mining in England and the Lake District, a slate quarry at Kirkstone in nearby Ambleside recently went into administration with the loss of 40 jobs – leaving just Honister and the Burlington Slate Quarry at Kirkby-in-Furness, Cumbria, flying the flag in the Lake District.Honister will compete against tourism experiences in Cheshire, Worcester, Yorkshire and Kent.last_img read more

Les analyses ont été réalisées sur des échantillons d’herbe prélevés autour de l’usine de Centraco. L’accident semble bel et bien terminé. C’est du moins ce qu’a confirmé mardi, l’Institut de radioprotection et de sûreté nucléaire (IRSN) qui a révélé les résultats des analyses effectuées sur les échantillons prélevés. En effet, suite à l’explosion du four dans l’usine de déchets Centraco sur le site nucléaire de Marcoule, des prélèvements d’herbe avaient été effectués en cinq points différents du lieu et envoyés au laboratoire.À lire aussiNe paniquez pas mais votre avocat est radioactif, révèle une étudeAinsi, plusieurs analyses ont pu être effectuées et celles-ci ont indiqué “l’absence de radioéléments artificiels et de marquage pour l’environnement”, selon le communiqué de l’IRSN qui avait expliqué dès l’accident que la radioactivité des déchets contenus dans le four était “très, très faible”. D’après Olivier Isnard, porte-parole de l’Institut, la radioactivité des quatre tonnes de métal avoisinait les 67.000 becquerels, pour l’ensemble du chargement Par ailleurs, les enquêteurs de la gendarmerie sont arrivés mardi sur le site de Marcoule pour enquêter sur l’accident qui a fait un mort et quatre blessés dont un grave.

Thames Water uses virtual reality technology in mental health strategy

Thames Water uses virtual reality technology in mental health strategy

first_imgEmployee Benefits Live 2017: Thames Water is using virtual reality headsets to help mental health first aiders experience what it feels like to be suffering from mental health issues to aid them in spotting the first signs that a colleague needs help.Addressing delegates at Employee Benefits Live 2017, in a session titled ‘Managing health and wellbeing at work’, Gareth Mullen (pictured), head of safety, health, wellbeing and security retail and group services at Thames Water, explained that the organisation was removing the stigma around mental health and had set up a health and wellbeing week to actively promote positive mental health in the workplace.“The key message is to get employees to have a 30 minute conversation that week [UK health and wellbeing week] around their own personal choices because that’s largely what wellbeing is all about: personal choice,” Mullen said.Mullen explained that Thames Water refreshed its health and wellbeing policy in 2013 after seeing a rising trend in cases of stress, anxiety and depression. The strategy has been evolving ever since.“We’ve stepped up a gear and created a whole new mental health strategy that recognises the effects of mental health in the workplace, and work related sickness has gone down dramatically from people suffering from mental health issues,” he explained.“We know it makes a difference; we’ve had testimony time after time. If anything, we’ve changed within the business over the last four years and have given people the ability to stand up, say they are suffering from mental health issues, and know there’s the ability to get support and help, and we’ve had some massive turnarounds.”Thames Water has seen a decrease in absence since the plan was put in place.In addition, Thames Water has introduced company-wide medical assessments and in 2014 rolled out prostate cancer checks for its male staff.In the first year of testing, Mullen revealed that two employees were diagnosed with prostate cancer which prompted Thames Water to continue screening for the disease. In the last 12 months alone, 30 staff have been referred for further investigation after tests showed abnormal readings.Thames Water has since introduced thyroid testing for women with a high number of employees testing positive for the condition.last_img read more

33YearOld Harbor Seal Humanely Euthanized Following AgeRelated Complications

first_imgSnapper was born at Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut June 21, 1984 and resided there with other harbor seals and grey seals until 1985. He moved to two other aquariums before being permanently placed at the Alaska SeaLife Center in 1998. A month before the Center opened, Snapper arrived with 3 other harbor seals and lived at ASLC for almost exactly 20 years. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska SeaLife Center, in Seward, announced the passing of Snapper, a 33-year-old harbor seal who was one of the Center’s original marine mammal residents. Dr. Kathy Woodie, ASLC veterinarian states, “Providing veterinary care for marine mammals can be very challenging,especially as we innovate to manage the issues that accompany our geriatric patients. From eye drops to ultrasounds, Snapper has been the bravest harbor seal patient, and he will be sorely missed.”center_img In a release from the ASLC, at 33, Snapper was well into his geriatric years for his species. As a result of his mature age, staff monitored his health closely and addressed various age-related issues since he outlived a normal life expectancy. While veterinarians treated his chronic issues like cataracts and arthritis over the years, these ailments worsened with age. Snapper was recently humanely euthanized following a rapid decline due to age-related complications. In the wild, harbor seals can live as long as 30 years.last_img read more

Prosecutor in Michael Brown Case Loses

Prosecutor in Michael Brown Case Loses

first_imgBy Matthew Ritchie, AFRO InternSt. Louis voters took a step towards more effective social justice reform August 7.In the Democratic primary for the office of prosecuting attorney for St. Louis, Councilman Wesley Bell defeated Robert McCulloch in an upset victory, ousting the 27-year veteran prosecutor. McCulloch was the prosecutor who oversaw the grand jury inquiry of the 2014 killing of unarmed Black teen Michael Brown.Bell’s victory may have come as a shock to some, but he defeated the incumbent by more than 13 points. His victory in the primary all but guarantees him the position, as there was no Republican candidate in the race.Wesley Bell defeated longtime St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch in the Democratic primary. Some observers saw the race as a referendum on McCulloch’s handling of the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown in 2014. (AP Photo/Jim Salter)He had gained a large amount of support from progressive Democrats, including influential endorsements from multiple political action committees concerned with social justice such as Real Justice, activist Shaun King’s organization, Democracy for America and Color of Change.McCulloch made national and international headlines with his handling of the Michael Brown case four years ago. He was criticized for how he ran the investigation of Darren Wilson, the White police officer who shot Brown after an altercation in the street. McCulloch neglected to indict Wilson himself, instead handing the case off to a grand jury. Wilson ended up not being indicted for killing the unarmed Black teen. This prompted a federal investigation by the Justice Department into the systematic racism of the Ferguson police department.The loss by McCulloch is seen as an indictment on his actions during the investigation. Critics believed that he “cherry-picked” evidence for the grand jury, which led to the lack of indictment. Others believed that he should have recused himself from the investigation and appointed a special prosecutor.Bell hopefully represents a step towards a new era for the St. Louis justice system. He has presented himself as a reformer for the justice system, pledging to end the cash bail system, which disproportionately targets and affects those in poverty and African Americans. He has also promised to never pursue the death penalty in criminal cases. This is in stark contrast to McCulloch, who often sought the death penalty.Bell will also carry the fight for justice reform in the form of drug offenses. During his campaign, he said he would refuse to prosecute low level, nonviolent marijuana offenses. He has said he will allow those with addictions and nonviolent drug offenses to be diverted from the path of incarceration and moved towards treatment.When Bell takes office after the November general election, he will become St. Louis’ first African-American prosecuting attorney.last_img read more

This new solution bridges the gap between the HIE/EMR world and the multimedia, ECM, EMR and VNA realm. The platform provides semantic interoperability to all stakeholders in the healthcare enterprise, from healthcare providers to the myriad of EMR, ESB, VNA and other imaging and multimedia vendors requiring interoperability. The solution was specifically designed to address the semantic interoperability chasm between discreet and structured datasets. This next-generation platform provides a toolkit for chief information officers and information technology vendors alike, to integrate and optimize previously separate or manual processes.For more information: www.vitalimages.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Artificial Intelligence | August 05, 2019 Montefiore Nyack Hospital Uses Aidoc AI to Spot Urgent Conditions Faster Montefiore Nyack Hospital, an acute care hospital in Rockland County, N.Y., announced it is utilizing artificial… read more News | Electronic Medical Records (EMR) | August 01, 2019 DrChrono Teams With DeepScribe to Automate Medical Note Taking in EHR DrChrono Inc. and DeepScribe announced a partnership so medical practices using DrChrono EHR can use artificial… read more Feature | Information Technology | July 31, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr How Smart Devices Can Improve Efficiency Innovation is trending toward improved efficiency — but not at the expense of patient safety, according to… read morelast_img read more

Costa Ricas Playa Grande A turtles paradise still

Costa Ricas Playa Grande A turtles paradise still

first_imgA natural encounterBack on the beach, Poulter waited quietly as Robinson followed the trail and snuck up behind the nesting turtle. Robinson then gave the signal to approach, and Poulter took a deep breath and crept toward him.Coming up on the turtle, she saw that it was about 5 feet long and hard at work. To create the nest, the turtle brushed the sand aside with thin broad flippers, her soft shell flexing from her heavy breaths. She seemed unaware of Poulter or anybody else, and continued digging. The turtle was in a “hormonal trance,” Robinson explained.Poulter got down behind the turtle, as per Robinson’s instructions, and several flashlights cast a red glow on her back. (Turtles’ sensitivity to light does not include the red parts of the spectrum.)With a clicker in one hand to count eggs dropped and the hand pushing sand to deepen the nest, Poulter remained facedown while Robinson measured the turtle. Poulter had a front row seat for each egg drop, and she even placed her arm under the beast to ensure the eggs’ safety.“It was a really amazing experience,” she said. “Tourists can come and see them, but they don’t get to touch.”When Poulter and Robinson left the leatherback to her business, she covered her eggs and headed back for the sea. Corey Kane A leatherback turtle at Gandoca in the southern Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. Courtesy of Ignacio Arroyo PLAYA GRANDE, Guanacaste – On the last night before turtle nesting season officially began in Playa Grande this year, the full moon cast a bluish light over the beach, illuminating a team of two researchers on a mission. As many people with many different motives had done before, the researchers were looking for nesting leatherbacks – a gargantuan, prehistoric-looking turtle species that’s been around some 100 million years.Research volunteer and recent high school graduate Madeleine Poulter had never seen a leatherback, and that was part of why she came from London to work with The Leatherback Trust, a nonprofit organization that researches and conserves the turtles’ nesting area in Playa Grande, one of the last safe havens for leatherbacks on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast.Poulter had heard plenty of stories what it was like to see a leatherback for the first time. One volunteer had tripped over vegetation while gawking; another had been so awestruck that a wave came from behind and drenched her.For Poulter’s teammate, lead researcher Nathan Robinson, nesting sea turtles were old hat. Now pursuing a Ph.D. at Purdue University in Indiana, Robinson has studied turtles on three different continents. Beginning in Greece, he later joined the project in Guanacaste, with a stint on South Africa’s beaches before rejoining the Costa Rica team.With all that practice, Robinson easily identified the tiny trails of turtle hatchlings in the dark, and he told Poulter to get ready. Her task this evening would be to lay face down in the sand and count as many as 100 eggs beneath a nesting leatherback.They continued their trek north on Playa Grande, where pristine land and treetops were just discernible through accumulating fog. When the two looked back south, they could see the lights of bars, restaurants, casinos and hotels flickering from nearby Tamarindo and obscuring the contours of the natural world.This was a problem, the researchers knew. This was why 70 percent of leatherbacks that nest in Costa Rica do so on Playa Grande. It was why leatherback populations have dropped from more than 1,000 nesting mothers to only about 40 each year.When the two turned back north and inspected Playa Grande more closely, though, they could see a few lights twinkling ominously through the vegetation. They belonged to beachfront developments, and soon there could be more.After two hours of patrolling the beach, Robinson spotted a thick black trail running through the sand perpendicular to the shore and up to the vegetation’s edge. He went to survey the scene as Poulter waited patiently, ready to see her first leatherback.The leatherbacks of Playa GrandeThe kind of turtle Poulter was about to see weighs up to 900 kilograms (approximately 2,000 pounds), accumulated on a diet of mostly jellyfish. That’s heavier than two jaguars combined. The oldest leatherback remains were dated to 100 million years ago, concurrent with dinosaurs that went extinct 65 million years ago.The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) warned that leatherbacks could go the way of the dinosaur, listing them as critically endangered in 2000, after researchers observed a 70 percent decline in the population of one generation of turtles. Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast has seen a recent increase in leatherbacks, but those conservation projects also have their dangers.While studying the turtles in 1990, the researchers who started the Leatherback Trust witnessed poaching and selling of turtle eggs by the local community. Just as the researchers now divide up beach to patrol, the poachers once drew lines in the sand up and down Playa Grande, according to Robinson. A kind of lottery was developed, where if a turtle nested on your turf, you had the rights to sell those eggs. Corey Kane Las Baulas National Marine Park opened Playa Grande for tourists during leatherback nesting season, from late October until March. Tourists can arrange tours on site and do not need a reservation. Tourists hoping to see a leatherback are encouraged to plan for multiple nights on the beach, as only around 40 leatherbacks nest per season.Those interested in the The Leatherback Trust can contact them to volunteer or donate. PRETOMA is another organization that focuses on turtle conservation in Costa Rica. Facebook Commentscenter_img Madeleine Poulter, a volunteer at The Leatherback Trust, reaches below the back flippers of a nesting leatherback turtle to count her eggs and measure the nest’s temperature. Mercedes Joéra, a native of the nearby town of Matapalo, used to poach the eggs. “People were driven to take the eggs, to sell the eggs in order to survive,” she said.Joéra never took all the eggs from a nest, because she knew that would be bad for the turtles, she said. She would sell to trucks just outside the beach, earning ₡500 ($1) for every dozen eggs, mainly because of a misguided notion that turtle egg consumption boosts male virility. But eventually there was another way to get by.Joéra now works as a tour guide, walking Playa Grande only for the chance to see the turtles and their eggs. She hopes the population will bounce back, but that won’t be easy.Although poaching has largely ceased due to the presence of guards and researchers, the problem, says Robinson, is that the life cycle of a turtle is so long. Leatherbacks reach adulthood at 15 years, and when an entire generation is wiped out, that’s 15 years we must wait for another.Whether that next generation will come around depends largely on whether Playa Grande will remain undeveloped. Not becoming TamarindoTour guides in Playa Grande have only to gaze south to see what can happen if development goes unchecked.“Tamarindo is good for work, but it destroys everything on the beach,” said tour guide Luzgardo Rosales, who has been taking visitors to see the turtles for 22 years. He worries about signs around Playa Grande that indicate the land could be sold to developers, and new construction projects could upset the creatures.The turtles’ innate sensitivity to light helps them get to the ocean after nesting and hatching, as they are attracted to brightest spot. The lights that come with development trick the turtles into heading in the opposite direction – oftentimes a fatal mistake.The development of Tamarindo provides one cautionary tale. Leatherbacks were once a prominent sight there, and some area restaurants and hotels still carry the turtle’s Spanish name, “baula.” But nobody’s spotted an actual leatherback in Tamarindo in more than a decade.Up in Playa Grande, a group of dedicated individuals want to preserve more than just the turtles’ name.“We’re all one family, and the turtles are our children,” said Laura Jaen, president of the area’s tour guide association, at a recent event celebrating the opening of the park for tourists. The Leatherback Trust, the local guides, Environment Ministry (MINAE) representatives, volunteers and the park rangers were all in attendance.“We need to work together to give a good show for the tourists,” Jaen announced.Jaen has been around long enough to remember the days of poaching, and her primary concern now is development. Though Playa Grande does not yet look like Tamarindo, some beachfront houses have gone up, as have properties throughout the park. Empty private lots display signs suggesting they could be developed.“We are not against development, but we want it to be sustainable,” Jaen said.Also attendance at the celebration was Bernal Cortés, a park ranger in Playa Grande of 17 years. According to Cortés, the biggest problem is manpower.The park needs 10 guards to patrol the various areas, he said, particularly in the more remote areas. With what MINAE has now – two active rangers – it cannot even perform boat patrols to prevent commercial fishing in the park’s waters, Cortés said.Meanwhile, numerous vacant properties, empty lots, and lots with permits pending dot the forests of Las Baulas National Marine Park, which surrounds Playa Grande. Rebecca Clower, a realtor from the largest company in the Playa Grande area, Blue Water Properties Costa Rica, said there has been a long pause on sales in the area. In fact, her company just made the first sale in six years there, she said.“There’s been this great cloud that hovers over Playa Grande and even local realtors don’t want to get involved,” Clower said. She was referring to a permitting process that can take as long as six months, sometimes involving a groundwater study. Clower said many lots had been developed in the past, but that fewer properties have been constructed in recent years.“Playa Grande is never going to be Tamarindo,” she said.Like a godfather for many around Playa Grande, Carlos Enrique Chacón, has run a hotel and restaurant in Playa Grande for 25 years. Chacón credited the rise of infrastructure with changing the mindset of people in Guanacaste.If you look at the big picture, he said, it’s the rise of electricity, drinkable water, roads and bus service that brought both income and educational opportunities to the communities around Playa Grande, such as the nearby town of Matapalo, where most of the turtle guides now live.While conceding progress, Chacón bemoaned that parts of Guanacaste seemed forgotten by the rest of the country, a sentiment echoed by Costa Rica’s daily newspaper La Nación, during the province’s recent holiday in July. “The government, in many parks, was not interested in investing,” Chacón said, tapping the table for emphasis.Chacón also has been disappointed with the small number of Costa Ricans who have become involved in The Leatherback Trust. One of Chacón’s hands was in a cast, thanks to a punch that knocked down a recent abusive patron. He held up the other hand to emphasize his point.“I’ve been here 25 years, and can count on one hand the number of Tico volunteers,” he said. “For me, there are two Playa Grandes. The one where they ate the eggs, and the one where they are developing.”He paused and then reassessed.“There is a third, today, where there is a respect for nature.” The Leatherback Trust team poses for a photo near a life-sized turtle statue.

Harsher smoking ban upsets bar lounge owners

Harsher smoking ban upsets bar lounge owners

first_imgOWNERS of entertainment centres such as restaurants, lounges and bars, were unhappy on Thursday with the cabinet-approved bill that bans smoking in public buildings and open air spaces, even for electronic cigarettes.The bill aims to replace the existing law on smoking controls and to align national legislation with the European Union’s Tobacco Products Directive.According to the bill, smoking will be prohibited in all workplaces, hospitals and schools, including open spaces. In the non-smoking areas, smoking electronic cigarettes, herbal smoking products and water pipes (hookah), will also be prohibited.The ban also includes the sale of packages containing under 20 cigarettes and roll-your-own tobacco under 30 grammes.Harsher penalties are also provided, with fines reaching €2,000 and the suspension of operations of a non-abiding business for up to four days, with the option for a court to extend that penalty.The government would like to see the bill, which is currently for discussion at the House health committee, passed into law the soonest as Cyprus has been cautioned by the European Commission since July for the delay in harmonising its national legislation with the directive.The head of the recreation centres association, Fanos Leventis, expressed the group’s disagreement with the proposed bill.“It is being insinuated that the (EU) directive provides for complete (smoking) bans, when this is not the case. Each member-state can have in place their own legislation according to how they see fit,” Leventis said.The last years, he said, when the failed legislation on the total ban on smoking has been in place, the association had put forth “sensible, well studied, and backed proposals” giving the possibility to establishments – if they wish – to host smokers “under strict preconditions by applying stringent standards applicable in other countries”.Despite that, Leventis said, the parliamentary committee is ignoring their proposals “in hopes that by enforcing a stricter legislation it will bring the desired results”.AKEL MP and committee member Giorgos Georgiou said that this is a very important issue that has been “troubling the commercial and financial life of the country, but which the government failed to regulate”.“We are called to vote a harmonising bill which makes the law even stricter (on smoking controls). We believe that the state and society ought to shape a culture of prevention, so that we can reach a point where no repression is necessary, to shape a healthy culture concerning smoking,” Georgiou said. “Health is above all”.Greens MP Giorgos Perdikis, whose intervention urged the committee to scrutinise the bill in its next meeting, criticised the government for delaying the harmonisation of the legislation with the EU directive.“We believe that a critical issue as regards public health is the protection of passive smokers or non-smokers, which is why we support the stringent clauses set by the new legislation provided that the state decides to have them implemented,” Perdikis said.You May LikeInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesNew Rule in Rowland Heights, California Leaves Drivers FumingInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
