Independent MLA calls new fracking database not enough

first_img“Reporting out on this activity does not address concerns about the massive amounts of fresh water the industry uses to fracture BC’s shale beds, nor does it protect the public from the toxic chemicals the industry mixes with this water to get access to BC’s natural gas resource,” said Simpson. “Online transparency does not halt the huge amount of fresh water that is being turned into a toxic soup and forever removed from the water cycle in order to produce natural gas, a process that has been shown to be dirtier than coal.”Early this year a coalition of citizen groups, First Nations, and the Northern Health Authority called on the provincial government to examine the serious health and safety concerns associated with oil and gas development in the Peace region.  With support by Peace River North MLA Blair Lekstrom, the Premier committed a public inquiry to investigate these concerns.- Advertisement -Simpson is still calling on the Premier to convene a Special Committee of the Legislature to conduct a comprehensive inquiry to fully examine the economic, environmental and health and safety implications of unconventional gas extraction before further expansion is encouraged.Thursday Premier Clark announced that starting in January, British Columbians will be able to search locations and details about hydraulic fracturing activities on an online database.Currently, the industry is required to maintain records of what is used when fracking and provide them to the B.C. Oil and Gas Commission if requested.The database will list locations where fracking is taking place, as well as details about the practices and additives used in the process. Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgShane Wallace of Wallace Media with presenter Andrea Gilligan.The MHz Networks in the United States has confirmed that the first of its three television programmes on Donegal will be aired on Saturday 28th June at 5pm EST (10pm Irish time).The programme will have features on the World Affairs HONORS – Gala in Washington, NI Bureau – DC breakfast event and MHz Networks Founder and CEO Fred Thomas gives an exclusive interview where he talks of his delight at having professional Donegal programmes featured on his national TV network. The programme will also include features on Sliabh Liag, Fanad Head, Inch Levels, Malin Head with additional pieces on the Grianan Festival, Donegal Marathon and the Diaspora Conferences recently held in the Letterkenny Institute of Technology.The programmes will be screened on Todays IRELAND – TV which is part of MHz’s national Worldview Channel which is available in 38 million American households across the USA.“It took 40 years for Ireland to establish professional daily television programming in the United States. The steadily growing success of Today’s Ireland provides important lessons to EU nations and other countries who are seeking to harness the power of television to cost efficiently access the US TV market place.“It provides a great platform for Donegal to connect with government and business influencers, internationally minded Americans and the Irish diaspora across America” said Mr. Tony Culley Foster UK and Ireland Representative of MHz Networks. And the former Donegal resident added “Today’s IRELAND is now an established global content provider of MHz Networks, an independent, non-commercial and public service television broadcaster delivering international educational programming and providing diverse cultural perspectives for a globally minded audience. Today’s IRELAND TV – USA is anchored by RTE, TV3, TG4,Irish Film Board, NvTv, Belfast Community Television, NI Screen & Donegal TV and connects American viewers with contemporary Ireland through a blend of news, current affairs, politics, economy, business, education, tourism, culture, drama, sports and entertainment.”Shane Wallace Founder and Director of Donegal TV & Wallace Media International who produced the 3 programmes on Donegal said it was very encouraging to receive international recognition.“Mhz only air programmes of the highest quality so it is pleasing that they have accepted our features and indeed have been very complementary about our shows on Donegal. When I filmed recently in the States many of the show participants had already visited Ireland and our county and are enthusiastic ambassadors for tourism in Donegal. Our programmes will promote the county and NW of Ireland to a very wide audience throughout the USA”.Paul McLoone, who assisted in the production of the features said that from a tourism perspective it was great news for Donegal.“I was working in tourism for many years and was only too well aware of the difficulties of getting the proper international platform to promote Donegal as we always felt we were fighting an uphill battle with the distribution stakeholders.“We were aware that if we made interesting programmes of the highest quality that an opportunity for US broadcast would arise so we are delighted that MHz will showcase Donegal to such a huge American audience”. The second show will be screened on July 5th at 5pm EDT and will include highlights from former President Bill Clinton’s recent visit to Derry and will have interviews with two very successful Donegal people in the States; NYPD Chief Kevin Ward and jazz singer Tara O’Grady. In addition there is a special report on the ‘Donegal is Happy’ video which was featured on the Oprah Winfrey show throughout the US and a short feature from the British – Irish Assembly meeting in Dublin.American viewers who also watch Donegal TVs content online via & were fascinated by Donegal TVs recent local elections coverage and as a consequence Show # 3 will be a Donegal Election Special from all of Donegals local constituencies and the European Constituency of Midlands North West.

Revealed: Quarter of all scheduled surgeries cancelled at Letterkenny hospital this year

first_imgAlmost one in four of the planned cases in the General Surgery Department of Letterkenny University Hospital had to be cancelled this year. The news was relayed in a Dail question to Senator Mac Lochlainn by the Minister for Health, Simon Harris.Management at the hospital have confirmed that out of 388 planned cases or surgeries this year, 89 had to be cancelled. Senator Mac Lochlainn said the numbers of cancellations are deeply worrying.“It is best international practice that surgeons or consultants would have a set number of days and cases every week, month and year to work on. Clearly the beds crisis at the hospital means that again and again, surgeries are being cancelled and these standards are slipping through no fault of the front line staff.“More importantly these delays cause real additional stress and distress to those patients from Donegal awaiting an operation or procedure. I am personally aware of on instance where a lady had fasted in preparation for a surgical procedure and was in gowns ready to be taken to theatre when her operation was cancelled. This is a scandalous situation”.He added that the unacceptably high number of surgical cancellations is a symptom of the overall beds crisis at the hospital. “This is a crisis caused by years of systematic underfunding and discrimination.“The outworking of this willful neglect is unprecedented numbers of Donegal people on trolleys at our major county hospital, waiting outrageous lengths of time for an adequate bed; almost 20,000 of our people or one in eight, on hospital waiting lists; and as we now know, unacceptable numbers of surgical cancellations”.He added “Earlier this year, my party published our report and document, “The Need To Invest In Letterkenny University Hospital”. We will continue to fight for fairness and funding justice for our hospital”.Revealed: Quarter of all scheduled surgeries cancelled at Letterkenny hospital this year was last modified: November 30th, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:cancelleddonegalletterkennysurgerylast_img read more

Japanese Man Sets Memory Record

first_imgItem: a Japanese man, Akira Haraguchi (age 60), quoted pi to 100,000 decimal places, reported Live Science.  It took 16 hours to say the digits from memory.  This broke his personal best of 83,431 set in 1995, and the Guinness record of 42,195, also set in 1995.Incredible feats like this hint at the innate capabilities of the human body and brain that only occasionally surface in world records.  Can someone explain what the Darwinian adaptive value is of being able to quote 100,000 decimal places of pi from memory?  Mr. Haraguchi is already past the normal reproductive and hunting years.  Will this help him inspire the tribe to get a bigger mammoth or something?(Visited 5 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img
