first_imgWHO epidemiologist Maria Van Kerkhove said China had tested hundreds of thousands of packages and “found very, very few, less than 10″ proving positive for the virus.Brazil’s Agriculture Ministry said in a statement that it was seeking clarification on the Chinese findings. Ecuador’s production minister, Ivan Ontaneda, told Reuters that the country maintains strict protocols and cannot be held responsible for what happens to goods after they leave the country.More than 20.69 million people have been reported to be infected by the novel coronavirus globally and almost 750,000​ have died, according to a Reuters tally.The WHO urged countries now that are striking bilateral deals for vaccines not to abandon multilateral efforts, since vaccinating pockets will still leave the world vulnerable. The World Health Organization said on Thursday it saw no evidence of coronavirus being spread by food or packaging and urged people not to be afraid of the virus entering the food chain.Two cities in China said they had found traces of the coronavirus in imported frozen chicken wings from Brazil and on outer packaging of frozen Ecuadorian shrimp, raising fears that contaminated food shipments might cause a new outbreak.”People should not fear food, or food packaging or processing or delivery of food,” WHO head of emergencies program Mike Ryan told a briefing in Geneva. “There is no evidence that food or the food chain is participating in transmission of this virus. And people should feel comfortable and safe.” Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday that Russia had become the first country to grant regulatory approval to a COVID-19 vaccine after less than two months of human testing, a move Moscow likened to its success in the Cold War-era space race.Moscow’s decision to grant approval before then has raised concerns among some experts. Only about 10% of clinical trials are successful and some scientists fear Moscow may be putting national prestige before safety.The WHO does not have enough information to make a judgment on the expanded use of the Russian vaccine, said Bruce Aylward, WHO senior adviser.”The vast majority of the population of the world is susceptible to this disease,” he told the briefing. “The second thing that we are seeing is the stringency of the application of control measures is dropping. People are coming closer together…masks aren’t being used the way that they should etc.”So any leveling of the disease that we are looking at is just lulling you into a sense of false security … because it has lots of space to still cause trouble,” Aylward added.Topics :last_img read more

first_imgSaint-Etienne aim subtle swipe at Arsenal over failed William Saliba loan move Comment The Frenchman is yet to play a competitive match for the Gunners (Picture: Getty)Fulham registered a strong interest and guaranteed Saliba regular minutes in the Premier League but it seems Saliba favoured a return to Saint-Etienne, who were confident of reaching an agreement before the deadline.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTBut Saint-Etienne claim ‘administrative conditions’ could not be met in England as they pointed the finger of blame at Arsenal, leaving both the club and the player ‘disappointed’.‘Long before the transfer window closed, Saint-Etienne had reached an agreement with William Saliba and accepted Arsenal’s offer for a one-season loan,’ a statement on the Ligue 1 club’s official website said. ‘Unfortunately, all the administrative conditions could not be met in time, in England, for the completion of the deal. ‘The disappointment is great for Saint-Etienne and William Saliba, who was particularly determined to return to a club where he has flourished.’ Advertisement Metro Sport ReporterTuesday 6 Oct 2020 9:48 amShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link5.3kSharescenter_img Advertisement Arsenal defender William Saliba was keen to return to Saint-Etienne on loan (Picture: Getty)Arsenal appear to have got on the wrong side of Saint-Etienne once again after the French club missed out on a temporary agreement for William Saliba.The Gunners signed Saliba from Saint-Etienne for a fee of around £27million last summer before immediately loaning the 19-year-old central defender back to the Ligue 1 outfit for the 2019/20 campaign. Mikel Arteta hinted that Saliba could be in his plans for the new term by giving the youngster a chance to impress in pre-season but widespread reports suggested the youngster would head out on loan before the summer transfer window closed. Saliba spent last season on loan at Saint-Etienne (Picture: Getty)It’s not the first time Arsenal have upset Saint-Etienne, with the Gunners coming under fire back in July for their ‘absolutely unacceptable’ demands which meant Saliba could not play in the Coupe de France.The impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the French football season meant Saliba’s deal came to an end before Saint-Etienne faced Paris Saint-Germain and they were unable to reach an agreement with Arsenal to extend his loan.‘Saint-Etienne was pleased to learn yesterday Tuesday that Mikel Arteta, Arsenal coach, was ready to leave William Saliba at the disposal of the club until the final of the Coupe de France,’ Saint-Etienne’s statement at the time said.‘William Saliba had been training for several days with Claude Puel’s group and was obviously very enthusiastic about the idea of ​​finishing his course in Green with such a match. ‘Alas, Saint-Etienne, which simply wanted the extension of the initial loan until July 24, could not find an agreement in the evening with Arsenal to allow the defender to properly prepare and play this meeting, the English club imposing absolutely unacceptable sports and financial conditions.’More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityReports suggest Arsenal have also angered Atletico Madrid for the lack of notice they gave before triggering Thomas Partey’s £45million release clause on deadline day.The Ghana midfielder put pen to paper on a four-year contract at the Emirates and agreed to wages of £250,000-a-week, making him the third-highest player in Arteta’s squad after Mesut Ozil and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

first_imgOrkney Isles light up with Scotrenewables tidal powerScotrenewables Tidal Power’s SR2000 produced 116MWh in less than a week of continuous generation, providing nearly 7% of Orkney’s electricity demand in August 2017. The power was produced from the 2MW floating tidal generator during ongoing trials at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC).On shorter periods, the SR2000 output’s contribution to the Orkney grid exceeded 25% of demand over a seven day period, the Scottish-based tidal energy developer said.Turbulent tides hit AlderneyAlderney Commission for Renewable Energy (ACRE) has reportedly cancelled the agreement with Alderney Renewable Energy for the development of tidal power resources around the island’s waters. The body in charge of licensing and regulating renewable energy developments in Alderney, the ACRE, has decided to end the agreement with Alderney Renewable Energy due to apparent breach of contract, the BBC has reported.The contract in question is actually a 65-year permit Alderney Renewable Energy received from ACRE in 2008 to install tidal turbines and infrastructure for renewable energy systems in Alderney’s territorial waters in the English Channel – an area of 48 square miles with an estimated tidal resource in excess of 3000MW.Illustration/OpenHydro tidal turbine (Photo: DCNS) SE Asia in the spotlight for new floating tidal technologyInternational collaboration between European and Asian clean energy developers has resulted in the introduction of a new floating tidal energy solution for Southeast Asia. Sustainable Marine Energy (SME), and Schottel Hydro, clean energy developers from UK and Germany respectively, have been working together to develop an integrated surface floating tidal platform solution known as PLAT-I.The platform floats on the surface of the water hosting four Schottel’s SIT 250 turbines, with the total capacity of 268kW. It is meant for deployment in less aggressive tidal sites to enable the exploitation of a greater number of locations to support island communities.A significant opportunity exists in the Philippines to harness the power of the oceans to provide a reliable supply of energy as the country boasts more than 7,000 islands, many of which are isolated communities that still have limited access to electricity.GE drops Oceade tidal turbine. Sinks NEPTHYD projectGeneral Electric (GE) has decided to not pursue further development of the Oceade tidal turbine, which resulted in Engie shelving the tidal array demo project planned for Raz Blanchard, off France. The two companies were selected in 2014 to develop a tidal array demonstration farm where GE was tasked with supplying four Oceade 1.4-18 tidal turbines for the project dubbed NEPTHYD.However, GE decided to suspend the development of the Oceade tidal turbine and redeployed around 40 of its employees working on tidal developments across its other activities, mainly in offshore wind, French media reported. As a result, Engie decided to shelve the NEPTHYD project citing ‘lack of supplier’ as the reason.Cape Sharp Tidal untangles Bay of Fundy tidal turbineCape Sharp Tidal has recovered its 2MW tidal turbine from the Bay of Fundy after untangling the line that caused a two-month-long delay in its retrieval. The turbine was recovered on Thursday, June 15, 2017, after it was set free from the tangled line around its subsea base that was preventing its safe retrieval. After that, the turbine was moved to Port Saint John for maintenance.Illustration/Cape Sharp Tidal deployment (Photo: FORCE) Tidal Energy Today is bringing you the list of the articles you read the most in 2017.MeyGen nears 400MWh of tidal power generationAtlantis Resources has revealed that in the first three weeks of March, the average generation at MeyGen has been sufficient to power the equivalent of 1,250 UK homes. The power performance of the turbines at MeyGen exceeded the contractual output guarantees, putting the project on track to achieve capacity factors in excess of 40%.The first phase of the MeyGen tidal array project started operation in November 2016, subsequently securing the full Ofgem accreditation as a 5 ROC project in February 2017. MeyGen’s Phase 1A features four tidal turbines with a total capacity of 6MW, three of which built by Andritz Hydro Hammerfest (AHH) and one AR1500 Atlantis turbine.Giant wave device sails across Atlantic for Wave Hub trialsIn February 2017 the US-based wave energy developer GWave unveiled plans to deploy a 9MW wave energy device at the Wave Hub testing center in UK. GWave spent the past decade developing its Power Generation Vessel (PGV) technology, and is currently preparing to bring the first full-scale device for testing purposes at the Wave Hub test center, off Cornwall.The device floats on surface of the ocean and pitches with the swells as the waves pass underneath. Inside the device there are weighs which swing in counter motion to generate electricity.The target date for the deployment of the device is summer of 2018.Philippines plans 20GW of renewable energy capacity by 2040Energy Secretary for the Philippines, Alfonso Cusi, said in April 2017 that the country plans to add at least 20,000MW of renewable energy capacities by 2040. Cusi made the statement during the launch of the Renewables Readiness Assessment (RRA) for the Philippines, undertaken by the country’s Department of Energy (DOE) and the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).PLAT-I tidal platform generates first powerThe 280kW PLAT-I platform was installed on November 25, 2017, and within two days after the installation, the SME and Schottel Hydro teams completed the first phase of commissioning the system. The work resulted in first power generation, and according to the developers, all four Schottel Instream Turbines (SITs) mounted on the platform reached their rated power of 70kW each, and proved their performance characteristics.Also, SME said the platform demonstrated ‘excellent stability’ throughout a range of tide and weather conditions, operating autonomously through its platform control system during spring tides in December 2017.SIT turbines on the PLAT-I platform (Photo: SME)center_img Horizon 2020 picks Nova Innovation to lead €20M tidal arrays projectEuropean Union’s Horizon 2020 has selected Nova Innovation to lead the project that aims to increase the commercial viability of tidal power through tidal arrays optimization. The project, titled Enabling Future Arrays in Tidal (EnFAIT), will build on Nova’s existing operational tidal power station in Bluemull Sound off the Shetland Islands in Scotland, which was one of the world’s first grid-connected offshore array of tidal energy turbines.It will extend the Bluemull Sound array to six turbines and seek to demonstrate that high array reliability and availability can be achieved using best practice maintenance regimes. Also, the layout of the turbines will be adjusted to enable array interactions and optimization to be studied for the very first time at an operational tidal energy site.The EnFAIT project began in July, and will run until June 2022, bringing together a consortium of nine leading industrial, academic and research organizations from across Europe.Tidal Energy Todaylast_img read more

Photo credit: gov.msBRADES, Montserrat (GIU) — Premier Reuben Meade says his administration continues to deliver the goods to put Montserrat on the path to self sustainability.In a statement released on Wednesday, Meade said the government of Montserrat has satisfied all the conditions established for the approval of the single programming document with the European Union, which he signed on Tuesday along with Ambassador Valeriano Diaz, head of delegation of the European Union to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean.The EU will give Montserrat EC$55.9 million under the 10th European Development Fund (EDF) programme towards its capital development programme.“It is the culmination of discussions and negotiations with the EU, which was finally agreed in February 2012 during our most recent visit to Brussels. The funds have been allocated to the Port Development Project and Little Bay Development. The total allocation is 15.6 million Euros to be disbursed in three tranches. In order to facilitate the draw down one of the targets to be met is the signing of a construction contract for the port project by mid June of 2013. “The financial review by the IMF in 2011, the peer reviews conducted by the Caribbean Financial Action Task Force, the commitments to financial reforms to include prudent fiscal management and public sector reform are key components of the conditions. “This [Movement for Change and Prosperity] MCAP led government will continue to show commitment in delivering the goods for the people of Montserrat who continue to exercise restraint as the international community continues to show confidence in our management of the economy,” the statement read.The premier extended his appreciation on behalf of the Legislative Assembly and the people of Montserrat “to the team of dedicated and hard working public servants, the entire EU delegation in Barbados, the Commissioners in Brussels, our Montserrat UK Office, Department for International Development (DfID), the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and the Overseas Countries and Territories Association (OCTA) for working with us in reaching this stage in agreeing to this single programme document which provides approval of this budget support programme.”On May 1, 2012 the premier signed a memorandum of understanding with the DfID which sets out an agreement between his administration and DfID which has, among other things, “immediately triggered funding support for the first phase of the geothermal project which has been at the fore of national discussions for the past several years.”“To this end we are in the process of establishing a geothermal unit, preparing the terms of reference for expert staff, and the tender document for the drilling operation. It must be remembered that this is phase one, the drilling of production wells and the testing. The second phase which is the establishment of the power plant will be discussed once we have proven the resource. Again, this MCAP administration is delivering the projects which will lead to sustainable development of Montserrat thus creating employment and income opportunities for many in the not too distant future,” his statement read.The premier also released for public viewing the full MOU signed with DfID, which lays out a series of reforms that the government of Montserrat must adhere to within set targets to be in compliance and receive additional capital development funds.By Nerissa GoldenCaribbean News Nowlast_img read more

first_imgWACO, Texas (Oct. 25) – A low-budget driver raced to one of the biggest wins of his career in the Sprint Series of Texas finale. David Garland collected the Saturday checkers, his SST first, after swapping the lead with Trevor Reed three times on the final circuit at Heart O’ Texas Speedway. “Whew! What a night!” he exclaimed. “I’d started seventh and had to battle Kenny Elwood for second before I could even try to catch Trevor.” After seeing his motor expire during the Sept. 26 IMCA Eagle Motorsports RaceSaver Sprint Car series show at Mountain Creek Speedway – he and fiancée Renee traded vows in the pit area at Grand Prairie that evening – Garland ran 11th in the Oct. 4 feature at Cotton Bowl Speedway. His Wheels of America-owned Sprinter was powered the last two nights by a motor borrowed from Sebie Davis, who’d contacted Garland via Facebook after learning of his engine woes. Reed, Dustin Woods and Jerry Hammock ended second through fourth, respectively, at HO’T. Jason Howell lent a hand with adjustments to the loaned motor and clinched the Sprint Series of Texas title with a fifth place finish that evening. Feature results – 1. David Garland; 2.

first_img The visitors had eased into a two-goal lead at half-time courtesy of an early Santi Cazorla penalty and an Olivier Giroud strike just before the break. But Palace rallied in the second-half and had Arsenal defending deep – with substitute Glenn Murray scoring a stoppage-time consolation before cracking a post with the last meaningful touch of the game. Arsene Wenger believes his Arsenal side may have “switched off” towards the end of their victory over Crystal Palace as they escaped with a 2-1 win. Arsenal moved third with the win and, although Wenger praised the fighting spirit of his players, he conceded they suffered a lapse in concentration as Palace pinned them back in search of a point. “Certainly they thought that it was done,” he said of his players. “We know in the Premier League that it’s never done, especially at 2-0. With that ball on the post we were a bit fortunate. “We can learn from every game. I believe that the players know that maybe they switched off a little bit too early. Overall I still must say that our central defenders played very well today against a very direct and a very physical game at the back. “We missed goal number three and when they came back to 2-1 we were a bit lucky, a bit fortunate. We did well so overall I’m pleased to have won three points in a place like this. I feel quite strong and let’s just continue to fight and be tight until the end.” Eagles boss Alan Pardew was left berating referee Mark Clattenberg as he felt Pape Souare’s foul on Danny Welbeck that led to Cazorla’s penalty occurred outside of the box – with Welbeck then offside in the build-up to Giroud’s strike. “The first goal was a mistake by Pape – he should do better, although it was tough on us because it looked like the incident was outside the box,” he said. “The second goal was offside. That call should have been made. A minute before half-time you’ve got to get that call right.” Despite the defeat, Pardew hailed the performance of his side as the best he has seen since taking over at Selhurst Park at the turn of the year. “We took a tactical decision to take the game to Arsenal,” he added. “We continued with the game-plan and I was very pleased with the reaction. Its probably the best we’ve played since I’ve been manager. “The chance when it hit that post and it fell in to the goalkeeper’s hands summed our day up. I thought it was going to spin into the net. “There was some great team play and probably the best players were on our team. But we’ve lost and sometimes that happens. Our final moment in that box needs to improve but we are not far away from being a decent team.” Press Associationlast_img read more

New Delhi: Rajasthan Royals lock horns with high-flying Chennai Super Kings at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur in the Indian Premier League 2018. The Ajinkya Rahane-led RR are struggling to pick their form with majority of their players going through a poor patch of form, whereas MS Dhoni-led CSK are hitting the correct chords at the right time.RR will be looking to revive some form and winning all of their games to make a solid play-off contentions, while CSK need just two wins for that.Interesting Fact: Raina vs RR: Raina has scored the most runs against RR than any other player – 517 runs from 18 innings.Highlights: # Buttler – Mab of the Match: Especially in the IPL, haven’t quite hit my straps. Tonight to get my side home, it’s always special to be not out in the end. As we’ve seen, the wicket plays really well in the first six. Just trying to capitalize on that. Couldn’t quite get it away, had quite a bit of luck. Dwayne Bravo is one of the best in the world, but you always get the feeling that it’s about two hits. Relatively big ground here too, so can take twos. Special to perform with my family here. We’ve kept ourselves in the competition.# Rahane – RR captain: As I always mention, this format is always about giving your best everyday. Buttler’s consistent batting at the top is magnificent. KG’s knock was crucial. I was nervous, but sometimes you have to control your emotions as a captain and we all had a feeling that Buttler will take us through. The way he handled the spinners was too good. He’s learning a lot, spending time with the experienced players and Warnie. Would like to thank Rajasthan Royals and Rajasthan government for supporting this initiative with cancer patients.# Dhoni – CSK captain: I think it is the bowling. We had to bowl one particular length and the bowlers were instructed on what they need to bowl and where they need to bowl. That back of the length was a difficult one to hit. We at least got hit 4-5 boundaries off full length. What really happens is once you are told what to bowl, you need to be bowling to that area. They need to commit and execute. It is not the planning but the execution that goes haywire. That was a par score or a par plus score. I think the bowlers let us down to some extent# Rajasthan Royals win by 4 wickets and its all on Jos Buttler’s powerful knock! Splendid innings!!# 19.5 Overs: Buttler and Archer ran for two and made it easily.# After 16 Overs, RR are 131/4# 14.3 Overs: FOUR! Stuart Binny slaps the ball towards  backwards point!

We had a high committee meeting and the coach said we should bat first.# Chennai Super Kings have won the toss and have opted to bat# PITCH REPORT: “I believe both teams will look to spin to win it. There are cracks on the pitch and no grass at all. The surface will get slower as the match goes on.

first_imgHAMILTON, New Zealand (CMC) – West Indies suffered a 2-0 clean sweep here yesterday after New Zealand needed just two sessions to wreck the remainder of the Caribbean side’s innings and inflict a punishing 240-run defeat in the second Test at Seddon Park.Resuming the penultimate day on 30 for two in pursuit of a world record 444 for victory, the Windies lost their last eight wickets for 173 runs, to be dismissed for 203 at the scheduled tea break.The defeat followed on the heels of the innings-and-67-run loss in the opening Test in Wellington, which also ended inside four days, and extended the Windies’ unenviable streak of having not won a series on New Zealand soil in 22 years.Captain Kraigg Brathwaite said afterwards the Windies batting plan for the second innings never took shape.“Individuals have different styles but the key was to take it over by over, session by session,” Brathwaite said. “Obviously it didn’t work out that way.“(The message was) don’t think much about the 444 but take it over by over – unfortunately we didn’t do it.”Roston Chase top-scored with 64 and tail-ender Kemar Roach entertained with 32, while Raymon Reifer resisted for 29, but none of the key batsmen stayed around long enough to turn the game into a real contest.Their misery was compounded by the loss of Sunil Ambris who was forced to retire hurt on five with a broken arm, after being struck by a short ball from the aggressive left-arm pacer Neil Wagner.Wagner claimed three for 42 while fellow seamers Trent Boult (2-52) and Tim Southee (2-71), along with left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner (2-13) were the other wicket-takers.The signs were there from the first session when West Indies lost opener Brathwaite for 20, Shai Hope for 23 and wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich without scoring, to tumble to 106 for five at lunch.Brathwaite, resuming on 13, was the first to fall in the sixth over of the morning when his firm cut was taken at gully by captain Kane Williamson, to give Boult his 200th Test wicket.Hope played a couple of beautiful drives but followed on the stroke of the first hour, caught at long leg hooking at Wagner, and Dowrich lasted just two balls before fending a short one from Wagner to short leg.In free fall at the interval, the Windies found renewed hope in Chase and Reifer as they added 78 for the sixth wicket, to keep the Black Caps without success for the next hour.Chase faced 80 balls and struck eight fours in just under three hours at the crease while Reifer stroked five boundaries in an innings lasting a shade over 2-1/2 hours and 109 deliveries.The right-handed Chase appeared completely at ease until seemingly losing concentration in the second over following the drinks break, and falling to a catch at deep backward square off an ill-advised hook at Wagner.Reifer departed four overs later, brilliantly caught at gully by Williamson sparring at a wide ball from Southee, as the Black Caps closed in for the kill.Roach then smashed a four and a six in a 44-ball cameo, as he put on 37 for the eighth wicket with Miguel Cummins (9) but it was a partnership which only served to delay the inevitable.NEW ZEALAND 1st innings 373WEST INDIES 2nd innings 221NEW ZEALAND 2nd innings 291-8 decl.WEST INDIES 2nd innings (target: 444 runs) (overnight 30 for two)K.
