Researching ground support at great depth

No Comments

first_imgErnesto Villaescusa, Professor of Mining Geomechanics from the West Australian School of Mines (WASM), explains that “as underground mining proceeds to depths approaching 1,000 m, the ratio of intact rock strength to induced stresses around conventional development excavations is such that failure of the rock mass adjacent to the excavations can occur very soon after construction.“At the present time, such conditions have led to the abandonment of operations that have reached those depths, leading to losses of hundreds of millions of dollars. However, over the next two decades, when the moderate depth resources are likely to be depleted, those conditions will be faced routinely.“In Western Australia, this problem is exacerbated with the implementation of top-down extraction strategies, in which ramp access for truck haulage is required leading to excavation size exceeding 6 m x 6 m (not including turn-outs). For this situation, widespread damage has been experienced for most conditions when the depth approaches or exceeds 1,000 m below surface. This is threatening our ability to mine the next 1,000 m – that is from 1,000 to 2,000 m, where a large part of the future resources are located.”Through CRCMining Villaescusa has been undertaking research in deep excavation stability at WASM. By being familiar with current technology developments and gaps he is trying to shape future developments in deep mining.Over the last two years he and his research team have undertaken fundamental laboratory experiments at the WASM site in Kalgoorlie and established a hypothesis regarding the on-set of damage leading to pillar crushing and total excavation collapse in deep underground mines – typically these failures include violent wall spalling.From July 2015, a new three-year project is proposed to deliver field-based research where excavation shapes designed to account for the large vertical stress components are constructed, and where large energy dissipation ground supports are immediately installed.In the process, de-stress blasting for development blasting will be studied in detail and the understanding of the key variables formalised. The depth of the excavation disturbance with and without de-stress blasting will be defined, and used to design effective ground support strategies. The role of geological structures, blast damage and orientation of the induced stress will also be considered.A computer program will also be used to study the interaction of induced stress, with conventional development blasting, as well as a number of de-stress blasting strategies. In parallel, the research team will work on geotechnical instrumentation devices that will be capable of providing warning of the progressive loading on high energy dissipation reinforcement and the implication for violent failure around the excavation boundaries.This research will test an excavation damage hypothesis and create a global methodology for safe and economic development at depths not yet reached by the current mining operations. It will enable the sustainability of underground mining even in conditions of very high stress, where failure can occur very soon after the construction of the underground openings.Successful completion of this research will allow Western Australia to remain the leader in underground mining development. That is, development that is safe from the point of initial construction to the life of mine completion – even at great depth.For more information visit CRC Mining website www.crcmining.com.au or contact Professor Ernesto Villaescusa E.Villaescusa@curtin.edu.aulast_img read more

Natasha McShane case Accused will not testify in court

No Comments

first_imgJURORS IN THE trial of a 34-year-old man accused of an attack on a young Irish student and her friend in Chicago three years ago have been told he will not testify in his trial.Natasha McShane, from Silverbridge in Armagh, has been left with extensive brain injures and speech problems as a result of the baseball bat attack, and still needs help walking.Heriberto Viramontes is on trial in the US city charged with attempted murder, aggravated battery and armed robbery in connection with the April 2010 assault on Natasha and her friend Stacey Jurich. He faces 25 charges in total.The court was told during yesterday’s proceedings that Viramontes would not be taking the stand in his own defence, according to the Chicago Sun Times.ProsecutionMuch of prosecution’s case rests on the testimony of key witness Marcy Cruz, who agreed a plea deal for her part in the attack. Earlier in the trial, she told the court she was with the alleged attacker on the night in question.Cruz said Viramontes parked her minivan in the Bucktown area of the city and left the vehicle carrying a baseball bat, telling her he didn’t want her to be involved in what he was about to do.She said he was gone just long enough for one song to play on the radio, and that he returned carrying two purses, jumping through the rear sliding door and telling Cruz to drive off.RecordingsJurors were also played jailhouse recordings of Viramontes, in which he admitted he attacked the women. In one recording of his phonecalls from Cook County Jail, he could be heard saying: “My intention was not to kill them, my intention was to get money to get high”The defence team claims the evidence linking Viramontes to the crimes is circumstantial, and have attempted to cast doubt on Cruz’s testimony, saying she changed the account of events she initially gave to police.The jury is expected to begin deliberating later today, after hearing closing arguments.Read: Jail recordings of man accused of Natasha McShane attack played in courtRead: Key prosecution witness tells court attack on Irish student lasted less than three minutesRelated: Friend of Irish student tells Chicago court of savage attacklast_img read more

Publicans say Good Friday alcohol ban has no place in a modern

No Comments

first_imgThere is no case for the licensed trade to be treated differently to other retail businesses. Easter is a huge tourism weekend right across the country. Forcing pubs and all licensed hospitality businesses to close sends a very negative signal to tourists and visitors who are left baffled and disappointed by the measure. Last year, O’Keeffe said tourists were dumbstruck to find that after paying for flights to Ireland, they could not buy a drink in an Irish bar.“One man from the United States pointed out that in his country there was a separation of Church and State and that’s what one would expect in a modern democracy. Others pointed out the negative effect on local business. So this shows the fallacy of the government’s claim to be pro-business,” said O’Keeffe.The group’s estimate businesses lose between €30 and €40 million by closing on Good Friday.Padraig Cribben CEO of the VFI said the public view the law as being completely out-of-date and publicans believe there is broad support for the law to be amended.

Indeed many are choosing to drink at home or organise house parties on the day. Friday itself is a very important trading day – for many publicans it accounts for 30% of their weekly business – and this is especially true of bank holiday weekends.“Publicans have been engaging with politicians on this issue for the last six years but the constant response is the issue will be addressed as part of a new Sale of Alcohol Bill. It’s as if ministers are living in never-never land while the rest of us have to live in the real world,” he said. Source: Shane O’Neill PhotographyCribbens said now is the time for politicians to show the political will to make the change, and made an appeal to the Minister for Justice, Frances Fitzgerald to introduce the necessary legislation in time for Easter 2017. O’Keeffe said the groups have not received any negative feedback from either the unions or from health lobbyists on the issue.He added that publicans are only campaigning for pubs to be allowed serve on Good Friday and said they were happy to remain closed on Christmas Day.Read: Where can I get a drink today?Read: As the off-licences were closing, we hit the streets to ask about the alcohol ban By Christina Finn Short URL Publicans say Good Friday alcohol ban has no place in a modern Ireland Publicans have made a fresh appeal for the ban on selling alcohol on Good Friday to be lifted.

Fairbanks City Council ponders Polaris building

No Comments

first_imgPolaris Hotel. (Photo: Dan Bross / KUAC)The fate of the Polaris building drew public testimony at a Fairbanks City Council last night, as an ordinance to keep the long vacant downtown high rise under city control was considered. Many who addressed the council spoke against plans to demolish the neglected former hotel.Listen nowThe owner of the Polaris hotel owes thousands of dollars in back property taxes over several years. If a portion of the taxes aren’t paid by the end of May the property would go to the Borough. Monday night, the Fairbanks City Council advanced an ordinance that would allow the city to retain ownership of the property. The building has seen better days and contains asbestos and other contaminants. Many would like it torn down. But several who testified Monday, addressed the bottom line. Mike Musick, argued restoring and re-purposing the Polaris made good economic sense.“I suggest that we take a good hard look at how it might integrate with the plans for the performing arts building and for the convention center,” Musick said. “I think we can save many millions of dollars and probably gather many millions of dollars if we finance this properly.”The price tag for demolishing the Polaris could run to $6 million. Robert Shields sees hydroponic gardening in the Polaris, and he says dealing with contaminants would be necessary if the building stands or falls.“We’ve discovered preliminary structural upgrades could cost under $1 million, and I think that’s very significant considering the price the city’s looking at to tear it down,” Shields said.The ordinance would also see the city paying the borough the tens of thousands of dollars in back taxes if the owner defaults. Sponsor David Pruhs said while it might be cheaper to let the borough hold the building, it wouldn’t be the right thing to do.“This is a long project,” Pruhs said. “The Fairbanks North Star Borough has been very amendable to us and that’s what the cost is. I’d love to have seen that thing refurbished, redone, but it’s not going to happen.”The council voted to advance the ordinance to the next meeting. By then, Councilman Pruhs hopes to have a plan in place to pay the taxes.last_img read more

Calling For Renewal Of The American Spirit Trump Outlines His Vision

No Comments

first_img Share Win McNamee/Getty ImagesPresident Trump arrives to address a joint session of the Congress at the Capitol on Tuesday.President Trump pushed the reset button after a rocky first month in office, delivering an on-message joint address to Congress that outlined his vision for America.“I am here tonight to deliver a message of unity and strength, and it is a message deeply delivered from my heart,” Trump said at the outset, declaring that “the torch of truth, liberty and justice … is now in our hands. And we will use it to light up the world.”It was a remarkably different tone than the president’s usual speeches, including his inaugural address when he promised to stop “American carnage” and painted a gloomy view of the country. There were no campaign-like riffs, no boasting of his electoral victory, no bashing of the media or taunts or jeers at his opponents.“The time for trivial fights is behind us,” Trump declared at the end of his speech — a somewhat ironic statement given his proclivity for picking Twitter fights and zeroing in on petty things like disputes over the size of his inauguration crowd.But throughout the more than hourlong address, Trump heeded that call, as he himself implored the country to “embrace this renewal of the American spirit.”“From now on, America will be empowered by our aspirations, not burdened by our fears — inspired by the future, not bound by the failures of the past — and guided by our vision, not blinded by our doubts,” the president ended by saying.Trump began the speech by touting the accomplishments he has already checked off in office — including withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, ordering construction of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines he argued would create jobs, and nominating conservative Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.But on what he would still do in office, Trump was often short on specifics and instead spoke in his usual broad generalities.On national security, the president said he had directed the Pentagon to “develop a plan to demolish and destroy ISIS,” while promising to “work with our allies, including our friends and allies in the Muslim world, to extinguish this vile enemy from our planet.”Trump redoubled on Republicans’ longtime campaign promise to repeal and replace Obamacare, even as the GOP has had difficulty coalescing around one replacement.“Tonight, I am also calling on this Congress to repeal and replace Obamacare with reforms that expand choice, increase access, lower costs, and at the same time, provide better health care,” the president said.Trump said he still wants to ensure that Americans with pre-existing conditions are covered and also said he supports letting people purchase plans “through the use of tax credits and expanded health savings accounts” and “to give Americans the freedom to purchase health insurance across state lines.”There were also some head fakes from the administration. While Trump told news anchors in a lunch meeting earlier Tuesday he was open to bipartisan immigration overhaul, that never made it into his speech.Instead, Trump continued to hew to hard-line rhetoric on immigration, recognizing families he invited to the speech who had lost loved ones to crimes committed by unauthorized immigrants. He announced he had ordered the Department of Homeland Security to create a new office called “VOICE” — Victims Of Immigration Crime Engagement — that would provide “a voice to those who have been ignored by our media, and silenced by special interests.”He still stood behind his call for “the construction of a great wall along our Southern border” to curb unauthorized immigrants, though he omitted a line from his prepared remarks that promised it would start ahead of schedule.Trump didn’t offer a specific defense of his controversial travel ban that affected seven Muslim-majority countries and was later halted by a federal court. The administration is expected to issue a new executive order this week.But he did offer a broader, more muted than usual, pushback to the order’s critics, saying that “it is not compassionate, but reckless, to allow uncontrolled entry from places where proper vetting cannot occur. Those given the high honor of admission to the United States should support this country and love its people and its values.”Some of the president’s bullet points were apostasies of traditional GOP orthodoxy. His call for more than $1 trillion in new infrastructure spending “financed through both public and private capital” could belie fiscal discipline the GOP has preached for years, though it is an area where he could find bipartisan support from Democrats.He also called for more military spending, as he had outlined in his budget proposal this week, and reiterated his call to “make child care accessible and affordable” and “to help ensure new parents have paid family leave.”Trump still did have some of his usual bombast, though it was far more muted. Instead of boasting about how the political pundits had underestimated him and crowing about his electoral win, the president instead sought to harness the movement that had surprisingly thrust him into office.“The rebellion started as a quiet protest, spoken by families of all colors and creeds — families who just wanted a fair shot for their children, and a fair hearing for their concerns,” Trump said. “But then the quiet voices became a loud chorus — as thousands of citizens now spoke out together, from cities small and large, all across our country.“Finally, the chorus became an earthquake — and the people turned out by the tens of millions, and they were all united by one very simple, but crucial demand, that America must put its own citizens first — because only then, can we truly Make America Great Again,” the president said, echoing his campaign slogan and striking familiar populist chords.There was no more emotional moment during the speech, though, than when Trump recognized Carryn Owens, the widow of Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens, who was killed during a ground mission in Yemen during Trump’s first days in office. There has been much controversy surrounding the raid, which killed civilians, and Owens’ father had harsh words for Trump amid reports that the operation didn’t yield any valuable intelligence.But Trump looked to silence any criticism by putting the spotlight solely on the deeply emotional widow. Owens received a sustained standing ovation from across the chamber, her eyes looking toward the sky and arms stretched upward as tears rolled across her grief-stricken face.Trump praised her late husband as someone who “died as he lived: a warrior, and a hero” and said that Defense Secretary James Mattis had assured him that “Ryan was a part of a highly successful raid that generated large amounts of vital intelligence that will lead to many more victories in the future against our enemies.“Ryan’s legacy is etched into eternity,” the president said.It was that action that had even some of Trump’s fiercest critics praising him after the speech, showing why it could be one of the most enduring moments from the critical address.“There are a lot of people who have a lot of reason to be frustrated with him, fearful of him, mad at him,” liberal CNN commentator Van Jones said afterward. “But that was one of the most extraordinary moments you have ever seen in American politics, period.”“He became president of the United States in that moment. Period,” Jones added.But other than that bipartisan moment, there were few instances where legislators in the chamber seemed anything other than deeply divided. Democrats sat stoically as Republicans repeatedly rose to their feet to applaud, with the occasional red-state Democratic senator, like North Dakota’s Heidi Heitkamp or West Virginia’s Joe Manchin (both up for re-election in 2018) joining them.Most Democrats, however, had marked down their resistance early on. Democratic women wore white to the speech, a symbol of the early suffragettes.Their choice to give the response to Trump’s speech was former Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear. While the 72-year-old who doesn’t currently hold elective office isn’t exactly a fresh face for the party, he did check off some of the boxes Democrats had last cycle with winning over rural voters.Perhaps most important, Beshear was able to speak to the issue that’s generating the most enthusiasm among the party’s grass roots right now — saving Obamacare. As governor of the conservative Bluegrass State for two terms, Beshear oversaw the state’s Medicaid expansion and widely praised health care exchange, which resulted in a drastic drop in the state’s uninsured.“Does the Affordable Care Act need some repairs? Sure, it does,” Beshear said, speaking from a diner in Lexington. “But so far, every Republican idea to ‘replace’ the Affordable Care Act would reduce the number of Americans covered, despite your promises to the contrary.”“Mr. President, folks here in Kentucky expect you to keep your word,” Beshear continued. “Because this isn’t a game. It’s life and death for people.”Copyright 2017 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/.last_img read more

Face Your Fear And Listen To The Kingdom Hearts III Theme Song

No Comments

first_img When Kingdom Hearts III was first fully revealed everyone was like “Finally, it exists!” And that was nearly six years ago. But at last, the utterly incomprehensible anime saga of Haley Joel Osment’s various Jesse McCartney doppelgangers (occasionally starring Disney and Final Fantasy characters) that began all the way back in 2002 will hopefully reach some kind of conclusion when Kingdom Hearts III releases in just a few days.So prepare yourself by listening to the game’s (admittedly pretty catchy) English theme song, “Face My Fears,” by Utada Hikaru and remixed by Skrillex.While there are have been plenty of Kingdom Hearts spin-offs released during these gaps between the main trilogy (complete with complete gibberish subtitles like Birth By Sleep and 358/2 Days), a true canonical entry in the heartfelt action-RPG needs an equally heartfelt original theme song from Japanese powerhouse singer Utada Hikaru. She’s so good that even being this tightly identified with a series as questionable as Kingdom Hearts hasn’t diminished my respect for her talent in the slightest. She somehow looks cool while wielding a weapon as dumb as a Keyblade.The first Kingdom Hearts had “Simple and Clean” as its main banger, the second one had “Sanctuary,” and now the third one has “Face My Fears.” Kingdom Hearts III actually has two theme songs. Originally, we thought new song “Don’t Think Twice” would be the game’s anthem, and both tracks have appeared in various trailers. But ultimately “Face My Fears” is the main theme while “Don’t Think Twice” is the B-side. Maybe Square Enix thought that extra thumping Skrillex techno club house dance sound would help the game appeal in the west. Or maybe Skrillex was just looking for another video game project after Wreck-It Ralph. The opening movie is still ridiculous, but it’s a different kind of ridiculous now, so that’s something.Kingdom Hearts III launches on January 25. Hopefully Tetsuya Nomura will then find peace and crumble into dust. For more on Kingdom Hearts check out the game’s impressive voiceover talent and read our hands-on preview from a series newcomer.

Why heart attacks are more prevalent in winters

No Comments

first_imgThe risk of suffering a heart attack is more likely to peak in the winter season and decline in summers because air temperature acts as an external trigger for the life threatening disease, an analysis has shown. The findings revealed that the average number of heart attacks per day was significantly higher during colder temperatures as compared to warmer.When the daily temperature dropped to less than zero degree Celsius, the average rate of heart attacks a day peaked to four, as compared to when it was above 10 degrees.Furthermore, the occurrence of heart attacks increased with higher wind velocities, limited sunshine duration and higher air humidity.”There is seasonal variation in the occurrence of heart attack, with incidence declining in summer and peaking in winter,” said lead author Moman A. Mohammad, from the Lund University in Sweden.”Our results consistently showed a higher occurrence of heart attacks in sub-zero temperatures. The findings were the same across a large range of patient subgroups, and at national as well as regional levels, suggesting that air temperature is a trigger for heart attacks,” Mohammad added.The body responds to cold by constricting superficial blood vessels, which decreases thermal conduction in the skin and subsequently increases arterial blood pressure. Other responses are shivering and increased heart rate, which raise the metabolic rate and in turn increase body temperature, the researchers explained.”In the majority of healthy people these mechanisms are well tolerated. But in people with atherosclerotic plaques in their coronary arteries they may trigger a heart attack,” Mohammad noted.Respiratory tract infections and influenza are also known risk factors for heart attack that have a clear seasonal variation.”In addition, seasonal-dependent behaviours such as reduced physical activity and dietary changes could also play a role in the increased occurrence of heart attack during colder weather,” Mohammad said.For the study, the team investigated the association between heart attack incidence and weather conditions such as air temperature, sunshine duration, precipitation, and air pressure in more than 2,80,000 patients.last_img read more

What was your high school mascot’s name? Your first pet’s name?If you have an online account at a retailer like Amazon.com, you’ve probably run into such questions when opening an account or when trying to recover one of the dozens of passwords you juggle in your head. Online businesses everywhere have embraced the technique, which is called knowledge-based authentication.Theoretically, the answers to these questions are so personal and obscure that knowing them proves you are you. Experts say, however, that the technology could end up helping hackers compromise your online accounts more easily.Knowledge-based authentication doesn’t replace user names and passwords; it’s an extra layer of security on top of such schemes, since hackers who stumble across your log-in credentials won’t easily figure out the name of your high-school sweetheart. Collecting log-in information and answers to secret questions from your computer requires keylogging software, making it harder for malicious hackers to triumph.Phishers Get Close to HomeJon Fisher, whose firm, Bharosa (acquired by Oracle last year), develops questions for companies to use, says knowledge-based authentication adds a step for account access. “Phishing both those pieces of information is fairly sophisticated.”But scammers have adapted, adding secret questions to their decoy pages, says Lance James, CTO of fraud research company Secure Science. Bank phishing sites may include their own fraudulent drop-down lists that capture people’s answers, which bad guys can then use to hack real accounts.Even when hackers don’t resort to subterfuge, these nuggets of information can be easier targets than passwords. Mark Burnett, author of Hacking the Code, has observed that seemingly random questions such as “What was the make of your first car?” have a narrow list of answers–in the case of autos, 38 major makers–that hackers can use to try to break into an account, versus a vast multitude of password combinations.

Mahahual mayor says sargasso barriers of little use

first_imgMahahual, Q.R. — The mayor of Mahahual says that the anti-sargasso barriers placed along the coast have been of little use.“The sargasso containment barriers in Mahahual have been of little use since there is still the accumulation of algae on the shore of the beaches,” said José Luis Sánchez Rosas, mayor of Mahahual.Sánchez Rojas explained that it is already necessary to come up with new strategies to fight the sargasso since cleaning by state government personnel has not been sufficient, nor by the crews that Othón City Council implemented.“What we are asking is that what is done has results because until now, we do not see results. They have even come every week to clean but we do not see results,” he said.Sánchez Rosas said that last week, these barriers out of the water for three days which caused tourists to leave the beach due to the accumulation of sargasso.“I saw that previously, they were fixed in the water and now I do not know why they were taken out. The accumulation of sargasso continues and creates a smell in the beach area that makes it hard to stay and eat,” he added.The University of Southern California recently issued its latest forecast on sargasso in the Caribbean Sea, reporting that they foresee a decrease in the algae for November and anticipated that for December, the seaweed would dissipate.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 WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img<< Previous PostNext Post >> Travelweek Group “We want to control our own destiny”: Transat sells H10 interest to develop hotel chain Posted by Wednesday, July 19, 2017 center_img Share MONTREAL — Transat A.T. Inc. is offloading interest in one hotel chain to focus on the development of its own hotel chain in the Caribbean.The company signed an agreement with H10 Hotels today for the sale of its minority 35% interest in Ocean Hotels, for US$150.5 million. This interest sold had a book value of Cdn$109.1 million as at April 30, 2017. The agreement with H10, which already owns the other 65% of the co-venture created in 2007, is binding and subject to certain usual conditions. The sale price is subject to adjustments at the time of the closing of the transaction by Nov. 2, 2017, and after if necessary.“Owning a minority position in Ocean has been a valuable venture for Transat both economically and strategically, allowing us to develop an expertise and insight into the hotel business. Being a minority owner was no longer an interesting use of our capital as we embark on further investments in the sector,” said Jean-Marc Eustache, President and CEO, Transat. “We want to control our own destiny, and this transaction is the ideal springboard for building a hotel chain that reflects our style. Our hotel division will take shape in the near future, including with the hiring of a president to lead it.”More news:  Onex paying big to get WestJet and that will send airfares soaring, says CWTThe sale of its minority interest in Ocean Hotels, as well as the proceeds from the sale of its tour operating activities in France and Greece last October, will support Transat’s creation of its own hotel development project.In recent years, Transat has refocused its operations around three strategic areas: air transportation, hotel operation and travel distribution. Last week, the company announced the replacement of its nine Airbus A310s with 10 new Airbus A321neo LRs, starting in 2019. Tags: Ocean by H10, Transatlast_img read more
