Photo courtesy of Gazprom. Gazprom said that it has been given the nod from Russian President Vladimir Putin to move ahead with the pre-investment phase of the second stage of the Power of Siberia project.Considered to be the largest gas transmission system in Russia’s East, the Power of Siberia project is being developed in three phases.The first phase comprises nearly 2,200km of pipeline laid from the Chayandinskoye field in the Yakutia region to Blagoveshchensk at the Chinese border. It began operations in December 2019 by supplying Russian gas to China.Details of the second stage of the Power of Siberia projectThe second stage of the Power of Siberia project will involve the construction of an 800km long pipeline section from the Kovyktinskoye field in the Irkutsk region to the Chayandinskoye field. The Kovyktinskoye onstream is slated to be brought online in late 2022.The Chayandinskoye field, which has reserves of 1.2 trillion m3 of natural gas, is the basis for the Yakutia gas production centre. On the other hand, the Kovyktinskoye field, which has reserves of 2.7 trillion m3 of natural gas, will be the basis for the Irkutsk gas production centre.According to Gazprom, the third stage of the Power of Siberia pipeline project will call for expansion of gas transmission capacities between the Chayandinskoye field and Blagoveshchensk. This will include the construction of the Amur Gas Processing Plant near the Chinese border, which will have a design capacity of 42 billion m3 of natural gas per year.The approval of the pre-investment phase of the project’s second stage enables Gazprom to begin the development of a feasibility study and the design-and-survey works.Upon its full completion, the Power of Siberia project will have an export capacity of transporting 38 billion cubic meters of gas per year. In May 2014, Gazprom signed a sales and purchase agreement with CNPC to buy the Russian gas delivered by the pipeline for 30 years.last_img read more

Press release: Government to offer antibody tests to health and social care staff and patients in England

first_imgAntibody tests will be available to NHS and care staff, eligible patients and care residents in England to see if they have had coronavirus as part of a new national antibody testing programme announced by Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock.Tests will be prioritised for NHS and care staff, and clinicians will be able to request them for patients in both hospital and social care settings if they deem it appropriate.The new antibody testing programme, which will start next week, follows the substantial expansion of the UK’s swab testing capacity, which saw the creation of the country’s biggest network of diagnostic labs completed in record time. Swab testing confirms whether or not someone currently has the virus that causes COVID-19.Under the new programme announced today, highly accurate laboratory based antibody tests will be used to tell whether someone has already had the virus, to provide accurate data about the antibodies they have developed in response. The information will help clinicians and scientists to better understand the prevalence of the virus in different regions across the country.Secretary of State for Health and Social Care Matt Hancock said: Ten million tests so far have been secured in a landmark deal with industry, including Roche Diagnostics and Abbott Laboratories, and these will be rolled out over the coming months, with further agreements being negotiated with suppliers to supply millions of laboratory-based antibody tests.A positive test result for antibodies, whichever test is used, does not currently mean that the person being tested is immune to COVID-19. There is also no firm evidence that the presence of antibodies means someone cannot be re-infected with the virus or will not pass it on to someone else. If someone tests positive, they still need to follow social distancing measures and appropriate use of PPE.As previously announced, a Public Health England (PHE) study called SIREN is already underway to help answer these questions and establish whether antibodies indicate immunity to COVID-19. A sample of 10,000 healthcare workers are being tested to examine any potential immunity to the virus.Professor John Newton, National Coordinator of the UK COVID-19 testing programme, said: Our understanding of this virus will only continue to grow as new scientific evidence and studies emerge. This new national testing programme is a very important part of that work. COVID-19 is a new disease, and our understanding of the body’s immune response to the virus that causes it is limited. Progress is being made every day, but we do not yet know how long immunity lasts, nor whether having antibodies means a person cannot transmit the virus to others. It is vital that everyone continues to follow social distancing measures, playing their part to halt the spread of infection. The results of this PHE study will be an important piece of the puzzle. We know people who have had COVID-19 produce antibodies in response but what we don’t know is whether this means they have immunity against future infection and how long that protection may last. Improving our understanding will be critical to future decisions about how best to control the spread of coronavirus. Antibody tests require blood samples, which will be collected by trained staff and analysed by existing pathology labs across England. Data on the number of positive and negative cases will be reported to PHE.Health and social care staff will be asked by their employer whether they want to have an antibody test. For NHS staff, the NHS in England has set up a network of regional CEOs to oversee this work. The NHS will use existing phlebotomy services and will set up more to ensure all staff can be tested.For care staff, the testing programme will be rolled out in a phased way across regions in England. We will agree with local leaders the best place in the country to start the programme and we will work with them to decide how this is implemented. Social care staff will be tested using a separate phlebotomy service, which will be able to take blood at their place of work.Patients who are already having blood taken as part of other tests will be asked whether they would like an antibody test.Antibody testing will have a critical role to play in improving understanding about the level and duration of immunity following infection, and how the virus is spreading across the country.The UK government is using its significant buying power to arrange supplies of tests on behalf of the devolved administrations, and each devolved nation is deciding how to use its test allocation and how testing will be prioritised and managed.Research is underway to understand more about the prevalence of the virus among the UK population through a combination of blood and swab testing in addition to PHE’s immunity study. This is one of a range of surveillance studies under Pillar 4 of the Testing Strategy, including studies by the ONS, Imperial College and IPSOS MORI, and Biobank. This information will help the government manage the ongoing response to the pandemic.Only lab-based antibody tests with CE marks that have been evaluated by Public Health England (PHE) and shown to provide reliable results will be used in the programme. The government has agreed contracts to supply tests with a number of suppliers and will continue to engage with other companies to establish further agreements.Notes to editorsThe Public Health England study seeks to understand whether the presence of COVID antibodies protects people from future infection of COVID-19. Up to 10,000 healthcare workers will be studied for at least a year, with data collected recording history of infection and any new symptoms that appear during the course of the study.Individuals will have nose and throat swabs and blood samples taken regularly to determine new acute infections and measure their antibody response. The study will provide vital information to help better understand the future impact of COVID-19 on the population.center_img This press release has been withdrawn because it is out of date.For the latest information on antibody tests see the guidance on antibody testing.,All NHS and care staff in England will be offered a test, with patients and care residents eligible at their clinician’s request Accurate and reliable lab-based antibody tests will improve understanding and data on COVID-19 Devolved administrations will decide who is eligible for tests in their jurisdictions SIREN study lead, Dr Susan Hopkins, said: Today we have signed contracts to supply over 10 million tests from Roche and Abbott supply in the coming months. From next week, we will begin rolling these out in a phased way. At first, to health and care staff, patients and residents. This is an important milestone and it represents further progress in our national testing programme. Knowing you have these antibodies will help us to understand in the future if you are at lower risk of catching coronavirus, dying from coronavirus and of transmitting coronavirus. History has shown that understanding an enemy is fundamental to defeating it. In this latest fight, our ingenuity and our brilliant scientists and our scientific curiosity is what will keep us one step ahead of this virus. We all have something to bring though in this fight – one action every one of us can take is to follow the rules on hygiene and social distancing. Not just for you, but for your loved ones and for your community. So please, stay alert, control the virus and save lives.last_img read more

Rich Robinson Announced To Replace Bad Company Guitarist On Tour

Blended voices, each with a personal charge

first_img ‘A Language to Hear Myself’ “At the Conference on Women in the Academy” (draft) by Jean Valentine, 2000. Courtesy of Schlesinger Library Arriving to rehearsal in a hijab and a T-shirt reading “Feminism is the radical notion that women are people,” Anwar Omeish ’19 slammed the door behind her — intentionally. Then her poetic side took over.Omeish paraded through the basement studio inside the Loeb Drama Center, her poem swelling into an impassioned soliloquy, haranguing a former teacher who’d once dubbed the speaker sassy: “Muslim girls aren’t usually like that,” he’d said.Titled “Volumes,” Omeish’s poem spider-webs out of the U.S. feminist movement of the 1960s and ’70s, and dictates that she raise her voice, slam doors, startle.“I’m responding to a June Jordan poem about sexual assault and silence, and the interplay of silence and volume,” said Omeish, who is from Fairfax, Va.Jordan is one of five poets celebrated in “‘A Language to Hear Myself’: Feminist Poets Speak,” a Schlesinger Library exhibit running from Feb. 29 to June 17.Archivist Laura Peimer and research librarian Amanda Strauss, the staffers behind the exhibit, knew a performance was in order and reached out to Radcliffe’s neighbor — the American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.). Issue of Poder: A Journal of Feminist Literary Perspectives honoring Audre Lorde. Courtesy of Schlesinger Librarycenter_img “The traditional model would have entailed performers reciting poetry at a podium, but we felt that we could experiment with the poetic form and make it come further to life by theatricalizing it,” said Graduate School of Education student Sammi Cannold, Hasty Pudding Artistic Fellow at the A.R.T. and the performance’s director.As well as showcasing the works of the exhibited poets — Jordan, Eve Merriam, Honor Moore, Adrienne Rich, and Jean Valentine — the performance will make use of six student poems, all of which become powerful monologues under Cannold’s direction.The one-night presentation will be held inside Schlesinger’s Carol K. Pforzheimer Reading Room. The space “has been the site of so much exploration into feminist history and feminist history has even transpired in the room, so it felt like the perfect setting to render meaning to the performed text,” said Cannold.“In our production, the audience will be seated at the tables like researchers, they will be able to write their own poetry on the tables before and after the show, and the actors will perform around them and share their poetic stories directly with them.”During rehearsals, Caro Ribeiro ’18 practiced the Lily Myers poem “Shrinking Women,” which posits the speaker at the dinner table with her family, noticing her mother’s meticulously constructed portions, the socialized standard for women to make themselves small — whether by weight loss or in everyday routine. “I asked five questions in genetics class today and all of them started with the word ‘sorry,’” boomed Ribeiro.In deciding to join the performance, Omeish considered which voices were missing. “It was an opportunity to get a voice out there like mine, but also to be apart of a larger tradition,” she said.The performance is set for 7:30 p.m. March 1. Tickets are required. Flyer for a poetry reading in support of Assata Shakur, featuring June Jordan. Courtesy of Schlesinger Librarylast_img read more

Armed Forces of Colombia, Peru, and Brazil Conduct Amazonas I Exercise

first_imgBy Yolima Dussán/Diálogo August 14, 2017 With the goal of reducing and stopping transnational threats in the border area between Brazil, Peru, and Colombia, the three countries armed forces conducted the Amazonas I Multinational Aerial Interdiction Exercise. There were five days of simulations using different protocols aimed at stopping common crimes that impact the area often: drug trafficking, illicit exploitation of mineral deposits, arms trafficking, illegal immigration, people smuggling, damage to the environment, and contraband. The exercise, held June 19th-23rd, was the result of cooperation agreements signed by the three countries, and the first in the area to include the participation of all three countries at the same time. Each of the countries used around seven aircraft on average, including search-and-rescue aircraft, interdiction aircraft, interceptors, platform airplanes and others. Fifty individuals participated in each air-force crew and another 100 on ground support. Peruvian Minister of Defense Jorge Nieto Montesinos was present at the inauguration venue in Iquitos, Peru, along with officers from the Brazilian Air Force (FAB, per its Portuguese acronym), the Peruvian Air Force (FAP, per its Spanish acronym) and the Colombian Air Force (FAC, per its Spanish acronym). The exercise required a year of preparation and coordination by the Amazonas Air Group. “There have been binational exercises in the region but this is the first time that the three countries are participating. This is something new for Peru, for Brazil, and for Colombia. It entails using the capabilities of the three air forces, which are permanently in communication with the technological teams, in a combined way,” Montesinos stated in a press release. “The objective is to prevent the borders from becoming [a place] to take refuge and a way to evade justice,” he said. Exchange of resources and technology The activity was focused on five training missions in mock detection, identification, interception, and transfer operations of irregular air traffic in the border cities of Iquitos, Peru; Tabatinga, Brazil, and Leticia, Colombia. FAC used aircraft available in the area such as the A-29 Super Tucano, SR-560, UH-60 Black Hawk, Caravan C-208, A-37, C-26B, and Bell-212, among others, for the different missions. Other surveillance- and early-warning assets were also employed in the Amazon region to conduct interception, tracking and transfer tasks for simulated targets of interest along the Sao Gabriel de Cachoeira, Brazil–Iquitos, Peru route. “This exercise was in line with the Standing Operations Plans within the framework of regional cooperation agreements with significant results”, Colonel Jorge Saavedra, the director of Air Defense for FAC, told Diálogo. “We are reviving our cooperation on information, our exchange of resources, and technology acquired by each country, which translates to information with a view towards anticipating the movement of illegal groups and stopping them.” Capacity development The main objective of Amazonas I was to conduct the exercises to prevent any air space from being violated. Along with drug trafficking, the most noticeable threat – environmental destruction – received special attention. All three countries are aware of the Amazon’s importance as the lungs of the planet and a reserve of humanity. Therefore, along with the aircraft, other ground equipment and radar systems were used. To improve capacities, the first step is to identify flaws. During missions on the first day of Amazonas I, the three countries’ air forces detected deficiencies in communications, in the speed of information transmission from one country to another. They immediately made corrections to improve this capacity and expand it. “For us as FAC, this is not training; we treat it like a real operation. The country invests a large amount of money in these exercises. Our commitment is deep,” Col. Saavedra indicated. FAC contributes its experience in interdiction, a capacity it has developed greatly on account of its tireless fight against drug trafficking over the past 25 years. “We have a lot of experience; we have accumulated great success in the area of interdiction. We’ve had the support of powers like the United States, and we were the only ones to access help with materials and equipment that we know how to handle,” Col. Saavedra said. Amazonas I also included the community “The community experienced an enormous sense of security. It was able to see that the forces are interacting, that they are at the forefront of the region’s security, fighting crimes that interfere with the legality of the three nations and working so they are left in peace,” FAC Colonel Julio Gómez Lince, the commander of the Amazonas Air Group, told Diálogo. On the Colombian side, a large part of the coordination of the exercise fell on his shoulders. The air forces of Colombia, Peru, and Brazil decided to make the most of the cooperation and the structure of the exercise to involve the civilian population in this activity. That’s why they had a development aid day that benefitted more than 500 individuals in Islandia, Peru; Tabatinga, Brazil; and Santa Sofía, Colombia, whose residents require state presence. During the development day, medical care was provided in different specialties like pediatrics, gynecology, dentistry, and general medicine, among others. There was space for recreation and to hand out free gifts to the community. There was also a veterinary care day. The final result couldn’t have been better. The three countries share a common language: that of cooperation. “Amazonas I was an exercise through which the three air forces standardized their procedures. This is of enormous importance,” Col. Gómez said. “Being coordinated means stopping illegal groups from having the chance to be successful in their operations. The shared procedures we arrived at thanks to these training missions are our path forward to act in a coordinated and safe manner in our duty to protect the borders of the three countries from transnational threats,” he concluded.last_img read more

Family rule deals with costs and fees

first_img Family rule deals with costs and fees The Florida Supreme Court has approved a recommendation from the Family Law Rules Committee creating a new section governing motions for costs and fees in family law cases.The court acted March 3 in Amendments to The Florida Family Law Rules of Procedure (Rule 12.525), case no. SC04-1652.The justices, in their unanimous per curiam ruling, noted that Civil Procedure Rule 1.525 governed those issues, but the Family Law Rules Committee filed an out-of-cycle petition seeking the change.“The committee states it is proposing new rule 12.525 because rule 1.525 is illfitting to family law matters, and this ill fit may be causing the circuit courts and the district courts of appeal to apply or interpret the rule inconsistently in the context of family law proceedings,” the opinion said.“.. . We agree that rule 1.525 should not apply in family law proceedings. The method of taxation of attorneys’ fees and costs in family law cases is quite different from that in civil litigation. Whereas the former is based on need and ability of the parties to pay, the latter is based on prevailing party considerations. Moreover, section 61.16, Florida Statutes (2004), already governs the award of attorneys’ fees and costs in family law cases.”The court concluded, “Accordingly, we hereby adopt new Florida Family Law Rule of Procedure 12.525 as reflected in the appendix to this opinion.”The full opinion and the revised rules can be found on the court’s Web site at The change is effective immediately.
