GOL, FAO to Launch US$492k Aquaculture Project

first_imgThe Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in collaboration with the Government of Liberia through the Ministry of Youth and Sports (MYS) and partners will on July 5, 2016 launch an Aquaculture Project valued at US$492,000. The initiative is an effort to address the challenges and constraints of youth unemployment – cited as the reason the Government of Liberia through the Ministry of Youth and Sports requested technical support from the FAO. The Technical Cooperation Project, titled: “Creating Aquaculture Enterprise for Youth Employment, Poverty Reduction and Food Security,” is meant to build the capacity of 600 vulnerable youths in aquaculture development in Margibi, Grand Bassa, Grand Cape Mount and Bomi Counties.The project is aligned with the FAO’s Strategy Objectives 2, 3, and 4, focusing on rural development. It is also aligned with the United Nations Development Framework (UNDF) Pillar II: (Sustainable Economic Transformation), while at the same time contributing to the FAO’s Country Program Framework (CPF) for sustainable agriculture development.Meanwhile, On June 27, 2016, 40 youths from across Grand Cape Mount and Bomi Counties will benefit from a ten-day aquaculture training seminar on the provision of economic development through youth employment, entrepreneurship, and improved nutrition and poverty reduction.The training seminar is an extension of the first seminar, which was conducted in Compound 2, Grand Bassa County, from June 13th to 23rd, 2016. The ten-day seminar will bring together officials from the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the Bureau of National Fisheries of the Ministry of Agriculture along with young Liberian entrepreneurs and other key stakeholders.The objective of the training session is to develop small business management skills, gender wealth creation opportunities, and develop the potentials of young people for sustainable aquaculture entrepreneurship. Participants of the seminar are expected to acquire improved methods of fish farming and hatchery management techniques, and better business development strategies. A training guide which was developed at the end of the first session will be used as a reference tool for youth aquaculture in Liberia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Romelu Lukaku and Juan mata react after a missed chance during the Manchester Derby on December 10, 2017.

Google’s $30 million prize over the moon

first_imgThe race to the moon won’t be easy or cheap. But whoever fills the requirements in the Google contest by the end of 2012 gets $20 million. The winning spacecraft must be tough enough to survive a landing and be equipped with high-definition video and still cameras. And it must be smart enough to trek at least 1,312 feet on the moon and send self-portraits, panoramic views and near-real-time videos back to Earth that will be streamed on Google’s Web site. “I hope that a … very ambitious team of people will allow us all to virtually go back to the moon very soon. I couldn’t be more excited about that,” Google co-founder Larry Page said at WIRED magazine’s technology show in Los Angeles. Participants must secure a launch vehicle for the probe, either by building it themselves or contracting with an existing private rocket company. Private rocket company Space X said it will subsidize use of its launch vehicle to interested competitors. The company, headed by PayPal co-founder Elon Musk, has not had a fully successful launch in two tries. Google Inc. is bankrolling a $30 million contest that could significantly boost the commercial space industry and spur the first nongovernmental flight to the moon. Call it Moon 2.0. The bulk of the prize will go to the first private company that can land a robotic rover on the moon and beam back a gigabyte of images and video to Earth, the Internet search leader said Thursday. Google partnered with the X Prize Foundation for the moon challenge, which is open to companies around the world. The Santa Monica-based nonprofit prize institute is best known for hosting the Ansari X Prize contest, which led to the first manned private spaceflight in 2004. The Google Lunar X Prize joins another prize already dangling in front of potential competitors: $50 million that hotel magnate Robert Bigelow is offering the first private American team to rocket a manned craft into orbit by 2010. If there is no winner, the purse will drop to $15 million until the end of 2014, when the contest expires. There is also a $5 million second-place prize and $5 million in bonus money to teams that go beyond the minimum requirements. At least one group has expressed interest. Famed roboticist William “Red” Whittaker of Carnegie Mellon University said he is putting together a team to build a lunar rover. Last year, Whittaker was in charge of two autonomous vehicles that competed in a robot race across the Mojave Desert. The competition comes at a time of revived interest in lunar exploration among foreign governments since the Cold War space race. Government agencies in the United States, Europe and Asia are gearing up to return to the moon. Japan’s space agency, JAXA, plans to launch its long-delayed orbiter SELENE from a remote Pacific Island today. NASA next year will rocket a lunar orbiter and impactor, the first of several lunar robotic projects before astronauts are sent to the moon next decade. Government lunar missions can cost upward of hundreds of millions of dollars, but the X Prize Foundation and Google hope the private sector can do it for considerably less. Space technology experts say a moon landing is achievable, but teams will face financial and regulatory hurdles. Chief among them is planning a mission that will be cheap enough to make the prize worthwhile. “There’s no reason why the private sector cannot band together and execute a lunar mission,” said Paul Spudis, a lunar expert at Johns Hopkins University, who is building imaging radar for two upcoming government moon launches. The partnership between Google and the X Prize Foundation comes as no surprise. Earlier this year, Page hosted a star-studded charity auction for the foundation at the company’s Mountain View headquarters. Page is a trustee of the X Prize Foundation. The Google Lunar X Prize announcement, also a flashy event, was attended by Apollo astronaut Buzz Aldrin and featured a video message by sci-fi film director James Cameron. Google has had previous forays into space albeit via the Internet by launching Google Mars and Google Earth, Web browser-based mapping tools that give users an up-close, interactive view with the click of a mouse.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

CONFIRMED! Man United flop Falcao completes Chelsea switch

first_img1 Premier League champions Chelsea have completed a season-long loan deal for Monaco striker Radamel Falcao.The 29-year-old Colombian international endured a miserable spell on loan at Manchester United, scoring just four goals.But Blues boss Jose Mourinho has handed him another chance to make an impact in the Premier League.“I am very happy to be joining Chelsea and can’t wait to start training and help with our aim of retaining the league title and being successful in Europe,” he told the club’s official website.Falcao failed to find the net for Colombia as they were knocked out at the quarter-final stage of the Copa America, has enjoyed success throughout Europe since initially moving to Porto in 2009.He made his Champions League debut against Chelsea and also hit a hat-trick against the Blues in the European Super Cup during a goal-laden spell at Atletico Madrid.Falcao then made his way on to Monaco but his big-money move was less successful as he suffered a serious knee injury in 2014 and missed half the Ligue 1 season and the World Cup.He moved to Manchester United as manager Louis van Gaal looked to assemble a side capable of once again challenging for Premier League success, joining other well-respected names such as Angel di Maria and Marcos Rojo in sealing deals at Old Trafford.Despite an injury-hit season for fellow forward Robin van Persie, Falcao could not capitalise on the opportunities presented to him – scoring just four times in 26 Premier League outings for the Red Devils.It took him until October to break his duck with a goal against Everton and he added to that with efforts against Aston Villa, Stoke and Leicester.That was not enough to convince Van Gaal to sign Falcao permanently but Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will be hoping he can help the forward find the kind of form that turned him into one of the most lethal strikers in the world and add to the goals of Diego Costa and Eden Hazard as the Blues look to build on their Premier League and Capital One Cup success last season.Falcao is now expected to link up with his new team-mates on a pre-season tour of the United States, with his return to Old Trafford pencilled in for December 28.

Prevent Drought: Hire a Beaver

first_img“Beavers can help ease drought,” say scientists from University of Alberta.  EurekAlert published a press release about a 54-year study that showed beaver kept open water wetlands available.  They seem to even mitigate the effects of global warming.  “Climate models predict the incidence of drought in parts of North America will increase in frequency and length over the next 100 years, and beaver will likely play an important role in maintaining open water and mitigating the impact, [Glynnis] Hood said.”  In fact, maybe it isn’t climate that is driving everything.  “Beaver are helping to keep water in areas that would otherwise be dry.”  Their presence has a dramatic effect on how much open water is available in an area.  See also Science Daily.Beaver are pests to some, and a cash cow to others.  In the early 1800s, they were coveted as a source of felt for gentlemen’s hats.  That’s what opened the West to exploration and expansion by Americans, Europeans, other nations and individual pioneers, explorers, entrepreneurs and adventurers.  We need to look at beaver in a better light.  They’re lovable, and they’re good for us.  Time to watch the wonderful IMAX file “Beavers” again. (Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
