first_imgCouncillor Gerry Crawford has called on Donegal County Council to carry out a review of all speed limit signs in the county.The Porthall-based Fianna Fáil Councillor says the Council must ensure that all speed signs are both visible and positioned correctly.Councillor Crawford highlighted an example at the entrance to the Ard Baithin housing estate in St Johnston. “A high number of road traffic collisions have been recorded at this location,” Councillor Crawford said.“I would call on all drivers to slow down and help improve road safety.“All of us have a part to play in our own safety and the safety of others.”  Councillor calls for urgent review of speed limit signs was last modified: April 2nd, 2019 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Ard BaithinCouncillor Gerry CrawfordDonegal County Councilfianna failGerry CrawfordPorthallroad safetySt Johnstonlast_img read more

Cape fires are ‘right on time’ for fynbos, says UCT ecologist

December 18, 2019 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: kkcykwsge.

first_img5 March 2015As devastating as the ongoing fires around the Cape Peninsula have been to property and tracts of nature reserve, regular fires every 15 years are critical to the rebirth of fynbos-dominated ecosystems, says fynbos ecologist Dr Adam West.“In the fynbos, fire is essential for maintaining the ecosystem and 15 years is an optimum time for fynbos to burn. In a sense, these fires are right on time; early enough to regenerate the plants that bind the soil before the winter rains erode the land.”Fynbos habitats have been burning every 15 years for between 3- and 5-million years, as long as fynbos has been around, says West. “The native plants and animals from these systems are well adapted to these regular fires. If they couldn’t handle it, there wouldn’t be any left.”Without fire, these ecosystems slowly decay, negatively affecting the plants, birds and animals whose life cycles and food chains are inextricably bound to the fynbos. Ironically, it is the lack of fire that is the ultimate death sentence for fynbos ecosystems.Mitigating effectsAnd although the fires have razed some homes and buildings in the affected areas of Tokai, Noordhoek, Muizenberg and Hout Bay, West has commended the City of Cape Town’s urban planners for the strict regulations that curtail development in the higher reaches of the Peninsula’s mountains, which skirt some of the city’s largest tracts of conservation park.“Good urban planning can mitigate devastating fires like these. And Cape Town’s urban planners have done a good job by keeping development below the natural plant line. This gives firefighters a fixed line to defend.”Unfortunately, developments such as the luxury Tintswalo Atlantic lodge, which was razed to the ground below Chapman’s Peak, are “time bombs” in a region prone to fynbos fires, he says. “It’s like building below the flood line of a river.”Vineyards planted right up to the natural vegetation on the mountains also stand to be damaged by these fires. “Growing vineyards adjacent to a naturally fire-prone vegetation is inherently risky. We need to think longer term about this kind of encroachment.”Sporting psycheWest is intrigued that the age-old relationship between proteas and fire has entered even the national sporting psyche.The South African cricket team’s inspirational “Protea Fire” campaign was adopted ahead of World Cup cricket, currently under way in Australia and New Zealand. This is based on the knowledge that Protea flowers are adapted to survive ravaging veld fires, growing back stronger afterwards.“But we need to get this conservation message out to the public,” says West. “Though we want to save the tortoises and other small animals, they too ultimately need the fire for continued existence. Fire resets the ecosystem.”He strongly urges the public to get behind campaigns such as the Working for Water sustainability project, alien plant eradication programme, and enterprises that highlight the dangers of encroaching urban areas, all of which do far more to preserve our natural heritage in the long run.Controlled firesWest would also like to see more managed burns; where controlled fires burn tracts of fynbos, limiting potential damage to surrounding areas and property. But these are being used less and less because of legal implications and penalisation.“Now we’re relying on arson or lightning to create fires at inopportune times when there’s a heat wave and high winds. We must think about how we manage fires because they are critical.”This is an edited version of a story first published by UCT.last_img read more

Google Dumps Gears for HTML5

December 17, 2019 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: ercinbyyl.

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Google#NYT#web Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostingcenter_img jolie odell It’s official: Google is ditching its homegrown Gears offline web app API in favor of backing HTML5 for the win.Now that the Chrome browser is becoming available for Mac, and the Snow Leopard OS doesn’t play nicely with Gears, a Google rep confirmed the company has decided to trash the whole works and wait for HTML5, even though the spec isn’t yet ready and isn’t supported by commercially available browsers. Oh, the humanity… or rather, the machinery.In the mists of time, back when Gears first launched, we wrote, “We’ve written many times before about the need for offline web app access… And guess who is most at risk with this announcement? Yes, Microsoft. Google after all has many of the top ‘best of breed’ web apps now.” This was before Google’s Chrome browser had hit the scene, and the Gears project was a collaborative effort between Google, Opera, and Mozilla.But in our coverage of last year’s Google I/O conference, we wrote of Gears, “We question whether offline access is even necessary. After all… in today’s world, you’re never too far from an internet connection. We concluded that offline access is important now, but less important with each passing day.”Not only could Gears be used to take online data offline, Google had more in store for Gears users.A few short months later, Google announced a geolocation API for mobile devices running Gears. We wrote, “We think that location-aware software is going to be one of the most interesting markets to watch in the near future and as location-aware devices become more ubiquitous, we will hopefully see a lot of new and innovative services make use of them.”But the party ended with Snow Leopard’s release. Changes in the newest Mac OS and Safari 4 prevent Gears from running on some newer Mac computers. Whether or not the relationship is one of causation or mere correlation, Google is now abandoning Gears.As one Google rep told the L.A. Times, “We are excited that much of the technology in Gears, including offline support and geolocation APIs, are being incorporated into the HTML5 spec as an open standard supported across browsers, and see that as the logical next step for developers looking to include these features in their websites.”Believe us Google, no one is looking forward to the cross-browser, cross-OS implementation of HTML5 as much as we are.UPDATE: According to blogger Mark Milian‘s unnamed sources at Google, Gears will continue to be supported for sites that already use it. However, the rep continued, “We expect developers to use HTML5 for these features moving forward as it’s a standards-based approach that will be available across all browsers.”Still, this statement marks Gears’ graceful and gradual retreat to obsolescence as HTML5 is coached for its center stage place. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Hansa Heavy Lift Ships 13 Modules to Australia

October 23, 2019 | By admin | Comments Off on Hansa Heavy Lift Ships 13 Modules to Australia | Filed in: adzvswdvm.

first_imgImage Courtesy: Hansa Heavy LiftGerman shipping company Hansa Heavy Lift has transported 13 modules measuring over 147,124 cbm from China to Australia, to help with the redevelopment of the Nyrstar Smelter in Port Pirie.The cargo was loaded on four separate voyages at the Yanda Module Yard in Jiangsu, China, with the largest piece weighing 690 metric tonnes, and measuring 28 metres in length, 17 metres in width, and 26.7 metres in height.“This was a particularly challenging project which required the use of three of our vessels on four separate trips operating at their full capacity, including HHL New York, HHL Lagos, and HHL Valparaiso,” Henry Woo, Head of AsiaPacific (APAC), Hansa Heavy Lift, said.“Lifting and rigging were particularly challenging for this project due to the height of the modules combined with the offset centre of gravity, with up to five lifting beams required for a single lift,” Woo added.The decks of each vessel were extended to the aft and in some cases even to the starboard side to accommodate up to five modules per trip. The over dimensional cargo required the installation of additional bow radars and the extra crew to double up bridge watches.Modules had to be placed onto the self-propelled modular transporter with minimum clearance in between each vessel’s hull and the fixed structures on the wharf to overcome the limited space on the jetty in Port Pirie.Image Courtesy: Hansa Heavy Lift“We are proud to have completed the project with a smooth execution at every stage, resulting in a safe and on-time delivery of all modules,” Jens Grever, Head of Cargo Management, Asia, Hansa Heavy Lift, said.The Port Pirie Redevelopment Project will convert the smelting facility operated by Nyrstar to a multi metals processing and recovery facility.last_img read more
