  • Jeremy Paxman BBC patronised young people with pretty stupid skits

They believe in the state. And not to recognise that there are those issues there is just silly.”On the existence of the licence fee, he continued: “I think it’s completely antediluvian, a tax on one piece of electronic equipment. Arguing that getting rid of the BBC would not make the world a better place, he nevertheless added: “Of course there is political correctness at the BBC.

  • Perfectionist teacher killed herself after therapist told her she was emotionally immature

    Chelsey Peart had been signed off work by her GP on a number of occasions dating back to November 2017Credit: Ben Lack  Recording a narrative verdict, Mrs Slater said she could not record a conclusion of suicide as the evidence she had heard did not prove Chelsey had intended to take her own life.Mrs Slater said it would “appear from the evidence that Chelsey found it difficult to accept that she was actually quite good at what she did”.”She was always striving to be better and perhaps she was a bit of a perfectionist,” she said.Mrs Slater added: “It’s clear, not just from the evidence in court but also the documents before me, where she is repeatedly going back to this report from the occupational assessment and I have no doubt that it had a very detrimental effect on Chelsey’s wellbeing.” Mrs O’Brien added: “Chelsey disagreed and contested with the occupational health report. I said I would speak to her GP to get a second opinion.”The door was kept open – at no point was Chelsey told she wouldn’t be able to return to school.” A “perfectionist” teacher killed herself after being told she was emotionally immature and unfit to return to work.  Doncaster Coroner’s Court heard Chelsey Peart, 27, who taught at Rawmarsh Community School and also ran a textiles business, was found by her husband Mark at their home in Rotherham in April. She had previously been signed off work by her GP on a number of occasions dating back to November 2017.Helen O’Brien, headteacher at the school, said she took Mrs Peart to the hospital in November last year, after she had told another member of staff she had had suicidal thoughts on the journey to work.The court also heard Mrs Peart attempted to take her life in February, information which was not shared with the school.In March Mrs Peart became “annoyed” by a letter from a therapist which labelled her as “emotionally immature”, something her mother, who was present in court, said “changed her completely”.

  • Displacing coal with wood for power generation worse for climate change

    first_imgWood is increasingly being used to replace coal as a source of electricity generation in many regions such as the European Union, where policymakers have declared it “carbon neutral.” However, new research from researchers at MIT, Climate Interactive, and UMass Lowell reveals that displacing coal with wood for power generation can make climate change worse for many decades or more.In the new study, Does replacing coal with wood lower CO2 emissions? Dynamic lifecycle analysis of wood bioenergy, the researchers—John Sterman, the Jay W. Forrester Professor of Management at MIT Sloan School of Management; Juliette Rooney-Varga, Director of the UMass Lowell Climate Change Initiative; and  Lori Siegel, PhD, Senior Modeler for Climate Interactive—examine the climate impact of replacing coal power generation in the EU and UK with wood pellets sourced from forests in the southern US. The research is slated for publication on Friday, January 19, 2018 in the academic journal, Environmental Research Letters. The paper can be accessed online at researchers found that wood pellets burned in European and UK power plants, such as the Drax facility in North Yorkshire, England—which has transitioned some of its coal power generation capacity to wood pellets with the support of UK government subsidies—actually emit more CO2 per kilowatt hour than that generated by coal. This is because wood is both less efficient at the point of combustion and has larger processing and supply chain emissions than coal. Their research shows that using wood instead of coal in power generation increases the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere, worsening climate change until—and only if—the harvested forests regrow.US forests are a main source for EU wood pellet imports, which have been rising as demand has grown. These forests grow back slowly, so it takes a long time to repay the initial “carbon debt” incurred by burning wood instead of coal. For forests in the central and eastern US, which supply much of the wood used in UK power plants, the payback time for this carbon debt ranges from 44 to 104 years, depending on forest type—and assuming the land remains forest. If the land is developed, or converted to agricultural use, then the carbon debt is never repaid and grows over time as the harvested land emits additional carbon from soils.The research was conducted with the use of a system dynamics model, based on the award-winning Climate Rapid Overview and Decision Support (C-ROADS) simulator. Launched in 2008, the model was reviewed by an external scientific review committee, chaired by Sir Robert Watson, former Chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). A summary of their review can be accessed here.The researchers also explored an increasingly common scenario in which hardwood forests harvested for bioenergy are replaced with faster-growing loblolly pine plantations. Surprisingly, replanting with fast-growing pine plantations worsens the CO2 impact of wood because managed plantations do not sequester as much carbon as natural forests.They found that continued growth in wood use, as many predict, will worsen climate change throughout the rest of this century, or longer. This is because the first impact of substituting wood for coal in power generation is an increase in CO2 emissions.  Even if the forests eventually regrow, notes Prof. Sterman, each year the new carbon debt from increased harvest and combustion outweighs the regrowth, just as borrowing more on a credit card each month than one is able to pay back will steadily increase what he or she owes. For countries using wood bioenergy as a component of their climate policies this could take them backwards. Indeed, bioenergy from wood made up 44% of the EU’s renewable energy production in 2015.“A molecule of CO2 emitted today has the same impact on the climate whether it comes from coal or biomass,” says Sterman. “Declaring that biofuels are carbon neutral, as the EU, UK and others have done, erroneously assumes forest regrowth happens quickly and fully offsets the emissions from biofuel production and combustion. One way to address the challenges raised in this study would be to count emissions where they occur, for example, at a power plant, and monitor and count carbon removed from the atmosphere by regrowth on the harvested land.”Critically, the analysis doesn’t support continued coal use as it is the most carbon intensive fuel and a major contributor to climate change. The researchers stress energy efficiency, solar, wind and storage as the cheapest, safest, and quickest ways to cut greenhouse gas emissions while meeting energy needs.The model behind the research is available for scientists and policymakers to design their own scenarios for bioenergy, conduct sensitivity analysis, and get immediate feedback showing the full dynamics, including both short and long run impacts.Drax produces about 7% of the UK’s power.

  • Bitcoin price takes a hit as largest trader halts withdrawals

    first_imgBITCOIN TOOK A hit in price as one of the digital currency’s largest traders, MtGox, was forced to halt all withdrawals because of a software bug.The company has said it’s been forced to take this action due to the way bitcoin withdrawals were being processed, going from a MtGox wallet to an external bitcoin address.The payment processor, which handles more than 80 per cent of all bitcoin transactions, says that the problem is being caused by “transaction malleability,” a bug in bitcoin software which makes it possible to use the network to alter transaction deals to make it seem like one didn’t occur when it did.The problem experienced by MtGox could be part of a broader problem that would affect the wider bitcoin community. Bitcoin itself has fallen in price since withdrawing bitcoins was halted. Back on 7th February, the price of one bitcoin was valued at $922 (€676), now it’s fallen to $615 (€451).MtGox said it will resume bitcoin withdrawals to outside wallets once the issue has been properly resolved.Read: So what’s the legal status of Bitcoin around the world? >Read: So what’s the next step for Bitcoin? > The problem we have identified is not limited to MtGox, and affects all transactions where Bitcoins are being sent to a third party.We believe that the changes required for addressing this issue will be positive over the long term for the whole community.

  • Media Council of The Gambia Launched

    first_imgBy Kebba JeffangThe Gambia Press Union (GPU) has on Sunday, December 23 launched the self-regulatory Media Council of The Gambia (MCG) as part of a series of events marking the 14th anniversary of the assassination of veteran journalist Deyda Hydara.Sheriff Bojang Jnr, GPU president said the media council will be self-regulatory. He said the intent is to ensure and promote professionalism but not to be controlled by the state.“I urge the journalists to submit themselves to the Council,” he said.Cherno Jallow, a journalism trainer at Insight Training Center challenged journalists to pursue real issues like farming sector, the stories of fishermen and other underreported issues.“They have a story to tell. Go and tell their stories. Let’s hear from our women. They have stories. They are the most productive sector in this country.“The problem we face today is unverified stories. I congratulate you for a job well done. We are not disappointed by the Union,” said the veteran journalists.Baba Hydara, son of Deyda Hydara said the moment is to remember his father who was killed for his efforts and resilience in the cause of fighting for press freedom. He emphasised the need to revoke media laws which are inimical to media freedom as it makes no sense to retain them.Speaking on behalf of the Chairman of Constitutional Review Commission, Sainey M.K Marenah associated Deyda’s killing with his stance in promoting press freedom in the country.“The new media Council is to ensure protection of freedom of expression in the country,” he said.He said the CRC chairperson has urged for standardization of journalism in terms of respect for ethics. He cautioned journalists that citizens have expressed concerns about standards and urged them to take note, whether their queries are valid or not.Madi Jobarteh, Westminster Foundation country representative said “self-regulation will ensure that “we are our own keepers.”He said other alternatives like government controlling it might turn to be such regulations that will be abused.Jobarteh said the body will undoubtedly ensure ethical standard in the works of journalism.Agnes Thomas from West Africa Democracy Radio challenged female journalists to take up tough assignments in the news rooms including investigative journalism. She also encouraged journalists to pay attention when reporting about gender sensitive issues.Baba Galleh Jallow said: “TRRC is committed to ensuring a national response to ending crimes against journalists and the cause of the death of people like DeydaHydara are established and given closure.”He said Deyda was a Gambian who was helping Gambians to understand what they did not by telling the truth to power which eventually took his life. He said the truth he told was clear and powerful.Dr. Jallow assured that TRRC will leave no stone unturned to investigating the death of Deyda Hydara.Dr. Henry Carrol, representing the Attorney General and Minister of Justice AboubacarrTambadou, said the family of Deyda Hydara had taken a clean route in seeking justice at the ECOWAS court. He said the government will need to comply with the ruling and eventually pay the compensation.However, Ebrima Sillah, Minister of Information and Communication Infrastructure said the government has already paid compensation on two cases regarding the ECOWAS Court ruling.He said they have tried to repeal all draconian laws before the end of the year at the National Assembly but could not because of circumstances beyond the control of the Ministry of Justice. Now he said this will be done early March.Sillah assured government’s support for the self-regulatory body. However, he made it clear that the state cannot finance it in any way including subvention. According to him, they cannot convince the National Assembly for approving such funding.He said he will support self-regulation that is backed by legislation and believes that they can work that out with the GPU at some later date.“We are not going to be a government that will harass or interfere in your work and we will continue to work with you,” he said.Minister Sillah went on to officially launch the first ever Media Council in the country, assuring his government’s support to the self-regulatory body.last_img read more

While the average interest rate on all mortgage loans remained unchanged at 4.63 percent during the month, the interest rate on conventional 30-year fixed-rate mortgages of $453,100 or less were down one basis point to 4.77 percent in September.The FHFA report indicated that effective interest rates on all mortgage loans increased one basis point to 4.72 percent in September and accounted for the addition of initial fees and charges over the life of the mortgage. The average loan amount declined by $12,500 to an average of $306,100 in September.However, rates have been creeping up since October and according to Freddie Mac’s latest Primary Mortgage Market survey, they inched forward by one basis point during the week to 4.86 percent. A year ago in October, the rate stood at 3.94 percent.”Despite volatility in the stock market, the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage inched forward just one basis point to 4.86 percent this week,” said Sam Khater, Chief Economist, Freddie Mac. “We expect rates to continue to rise, which will put downward pressure on homebuying activity. While higher borrowing costs will keep some people out of the market, buyers with more flexibility could take advantage of the decreased competition.”Freddie Mac, which also measures the 15-year fixed-rate mortgage and five-year Treasury-indexed hybrid adjustable-rate mortgage (ARMs) said that these rates also rose slightly from last week to 4.29 percent and 4.14 percent respectively.
