Published: Dec. 3, 2014 As we have heard from the Chancellor and the Provost, the University of Colorado Boulder is accepting the national call to answer a grand challenge – an ambitious but achievable goal that harnesses innovation, science, technology and the humanities to solve an important national or global problem and that has the potential to capture our imagination.At CU-Boulder, we believe we can leverage our unique strengths in Earth and space science and technology to expand our role in space innovation, entrepreneurship, workforce development, and the understanding and shaping of how space-based science and technologies impact our lives, institutions and society. Will you join very interactive Grand Challenge Imagination Summit on Tuesday, Dec. 9 from 2 – 4:30 p.m. at the Stadium Club to help us with the next steps in defining our grand challenge?At the Summit, you will have the opportunity to hear from several leaders and visionaries in this subject area, including Mark Sirangelo of Sierra Nevada Space Systems, Bobby Braun, Professor of Space Technology, Georgia Institute of Technology and former Chief Technologist, NASA and Major General (Ret) Jay Lindell, State of Colorado Aerospace & Defense Industry Champion (Office of Economic Development and International Trade – OEDIT).We will also gather in breakout groups with our colleagues and brainstorm ideas for grand challenge themes. Successful ideas will inspire our community to new collaboration and creativity – across campus and across Colorado – while increasing student engagement and success. These ideas will have the potential for increasing opportunities for research, investment and partnerships with a breadth of stakeholders.We would greatly appreciate your support in this effort by your participation in the Summit. Interested participants should RSVP to [email protected] or drop in on the day of the event. A website will launch in conjunction with the event, where all can submit their grand challenge ideas for consideration by the campus steering committee.If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Kaye Orten at [email protected] or Diane Dimeff at [email protected], and we look forward to seeing you at 2 p.m. on Dec. 9.Sincerely,Waleed Abdalati, Director of the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) and Professor of Geography Steven Leigh, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and Professor of Anthropology Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail
Related240 Small Farmers to Benefit from Loans FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail A total of 240 small farmers in eastern parishes are to benefit from loans this fiscal year to enhance agricultural production.These include some 80 banana and plantain farmers and 160 vegetable, Irish potato and onion farmers.The provision comes under the Agricultural Support Project, for which some $57 million has been set aside in the 2013/14 Estimates of Expenditure, which is now before the House of Representatives.The project, funded by Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), aims to provide support to the agricultural sector by fostering an increase in small farm agricultural production.Specifically, it seeks to provide access to credit by small farmers and small-scale agricultural entrepreneurs, in order to increase agricultural production and competitiveness, so as to enhance economic growth.Since the inception of the programme in 2009, 498 loans have been approved for on-lending to pig, poultry, Irish potato, greenhouse, and vegetable farmers.

Bar fights, bar backs and bar food. However, one local bar owner is hoping there might be room for bar books as well.Janet Fattal, co-owner of Barney’s Beanery on Third St Promenade has teamed up with television show writer Joyce Gittlin, to publish their first novel, A Narrow Bridge.Janet and her husband Avi Fattal own the popular bar in Santa Monica. However, owning a local bar was never Fattals’ lifelong dream.“It is a great business, and Santa Monica is a big part of our flagship,” said Janet Fattal. “Overall the Promenade is just an exciting place to be.”She grew up reading and writing, and knew some day she would write a novel. She leads many Los Angeles area book groups including locations like the Skirball Cultural Center.With a Masters degree in Comparative Literature from UCLA, and a career as an educator teaching literature she decided it was time to start writing.Her manager introduced her to Joyce Gittlin, a writer and television show director of Frasier, and Everybody Loves Raymond. She has also written more than ten features films for Disney, and 20th Century Fox.The two clicked instantly and became writing partners. Together they formed their new pen name, J.J. Gesher.They wrote a screenplay together and won multiple awards including the Geller Prize and the Screenwriting Award at the Austin Film Festival. It soon became a movie on a major network. However, the two were not satisfied with how the film turned out and decided to redeem the story by making it a novel.Ever heard the saying, the book is better than the movie?Well Fattal and Gittlin set out to make sure the book was better than the movie. They believed the audience deserved an opportunity to really understand each character, and comprehend the theme of novel, resilience and the importance of human connection.Fattel said, “We began writing the novel in 2013. We really wanted to continue to tell the characters stories while maintaining control of the novel.”The novel, A Narrow Bridge was published in February of this year and explores the sensitive topics of ethnicity, religion and cultural issues.Gittlin said the novel is about an Orthodox Jewish man living in Brooklyn and how his life goes to shambles. He finds himself an Alabaman town with a large African American population where he discovers new culture, new friends and a new passion.“It is an emotional read, and we hope people can get a sense of common ground after reading this book,” said Fattal.Gittlin believes the book came out at the right time, as the novel shows diversity and human connection. She said it’s timely for the country’s current state of mind.

DP World’s London Gateway and Southampton container hubs are experiencing terminal congestion that threatens to further stymie the supply of holiday season products to the market.Vessel-working and landside delays at the UK’s second and third-biggest container ports will add to the misery for importers hit by severe delays in recent months at the largest box port, Felixstowe.Last week, CMA CGM announced it would levy a port congestion surcharge of $150 per teu on all imports via Southampton from 1 November, claiming its operational costs at the UK south coast port had increased “significantly over the past weeks”.Today, Hapag-Lloyd advised its customers it was “experiencing congestion in the berthing plan and container yard” at London Gateway. By Mike Wackett 26/10/2020 “In recent weeks, this has resulted in several port omissions, cut-and-runs and move-count restrictions,” it said, adding that bad weather, Covid-secure measures, transport shortages and “abnormal increases in volume” at London Gateway were contributing factors.The carrier warned that, although it expected some improvements at the facility, it expected the congestion to continue until mid-November.Meanwhile, haulier and forwarding sources The Loadstar spoke to today claimed that the congestion at London Gateway and Southampton was a knock-on result of the well-documented VBS delays at Felixstowe.And David Perfect, MD of a Thurrock-based haulier, did not mince his words: “Due to the ineptness of Felixstowe, shippers are using lines that run into Southampton and Gateway, which are now absorbing the extra work, which is causing delays in terminals.“We have completely avoided Felixstowe during the day and now only move out of there during the night,” he added.Last week, port users and freight trade associations warned that Felixstowe was “grinding to a virtual standstill at peak times”. The Felixstowe Port Users’ Association (FPUA) claimed VBS slots were running at only 180 per hour, compared with 240 10 years ago, and that container moves per crane hour had fallen to just 16, compared with around 30 at rival UK ports.“The port of Felixstowe is at a virtual standstill and the issue is being blamed on a shortage of labour,” the FPUA told The Financial Times, and estimated that the two terminals at Trinity and Landguard were operating at just 70-80% of capacity.The Hutchison Ports facility, advised by the former transport secretary Chris Grayling, refuted the crane movement numbers, describing them as “inaccurate”, but declined to give actual data to theUK newspaper, saying “comparisons were hard to make”.Meanwhile, another haulier source at Felixstowe told The Loadstar today he believed all UK ports were struggling with capacity, due to the abnormal volumes, but “only Felixstowe is in denial”.He added: “This shambles will not change until volumes drop in Q1 21, as the port cannot find a solution.”A spokesman for DP World told The Loadstar: “The UK is currently experiencing increased levels of inbound traffic into its port network. London Gateway and Southampton have evolved to support our customers’ needs during this period and are operating effectively, despite unprecedented inbound traffic. We continue to work with all our partners to maintain high levels of service.”

I am pretty keen to contribute on the field now and give it my best shot,’ he said.‘I watched the guys in my position in particular and what they were doing and what I would have done if I was in that situation.’*Follow us on our new Instagram journey by clicking here‘I’m learning all the time and that worked for me, trying to put myself in their boots. There is often a different perspective from the outside and being in that match situation yourself and combining the two makes you better, I believe.‘The importance, though, is grabbing this opportunity and showing that I can contribute to the squad and the system this weekend.’Ndhlovu, who was selected as the player on standby for the Los Angeles and Vancouver tournaments, was more prosaic, describing his comeback as ‘food for the soul’.‘I am a religious person and believe that God will determine my destiny. I had some setbacks along the line with injury, but that made me stronger and more determined. It is great being back and I am taking in all of the experience and expertise from the senior guys,’ he explained.‘I certainly missed out on valuable game time in the last two years, but that was God’s plan for me, and I accept that. I am blessed to still be here and would like to make the most of the opportunities that will still come my way.’The Springbok Sevens team has been drawn in Pool B for the Los Angeles Sevens, alongside Kenya, Canada and Ireland.Photo: Melissa Lear Photography ‘ ‘ Post by SA Rugby magazine

By John Heinis/Hudson County View“CarePoint Health and BMC Hospital LLC are pleased to announce that they signed a letter of intent concerning the sale and preservation of Bayonne Medical Center as an acute care hospital,” CarePoint spokesman Eric Bloom said in a statement.“The transaction is contingent on approvals from the Department of Health, and either a simultaneous purchase of the real estate by an affiliated entity or the City of Bayonne and/or Hudson County Improvement Authority exercising its right to eminent domain related to the Hospital real estate.”He also said that Bayonne and the HCIA are discussing “the appropriate steps to eminent” domain the aforementioned property.BMC Hospital LLC, who boasts over 50 years of experience operating healthcare facilities – including some in the New York Metropolitan region – expressed excitement about operating in Bayonne.â€œBayonne is a vibrant, growing community with a great history that the Bayonne Medical Center has always been part of, and should continue to be into the future,” the company said in the same statement.“We look forward to making sure that happens for the citizens, patients, doctors, nurses and others to whom the hospital is so important.â€Bayonne Assemblyman Nick Chiaravalloti (D-31), who introduced a financial transparency bill last year after the CarePoint owners were alleged to have been paid $157 million in management fees, also had positive remarks about the latest development.â€œI welcome the news that CarePoint-Bayonne has signed a Letter of Interest with a prospective purchaser of Bayonne Medical Center. The COVID-19 pandemic has proven what I always knew â€“ Bayonne needs a full-service acute care hospital.”Back in October, Hudson County officials said they would fight against any CarePoint sale that would close the BMC, with many of those officials – plus many others – reconvening earlier this month to claim Alaris Health was holding up hospital sales by asking for $300 million for land they acquired for $51 million.To that end, Bloom said that CarePoint and RWJ Barnabas Health had reached a deal to sell Christ Hospital in Jersey City and the Hoboken University Medical Center, but Avery Eisenreich, the owner of Alaris, killed the deal.“CarePoint Health separately reached agreement with RWJ Barnabas Health, Inc. on all material terms to sell Christ Hospital and Hoboken University Medical Center but Avery Eisenreich refused to accept reasonable offers that will allow the transaction to move forward.”Alaris and Eisenreich could not immediately be reached for comment.

Email* They don’t call him “The Flying Frenchman” for nothing. Two-time defending Canadian Show Jumping Champion Yann Candele (Caledon, ON), took the initial round of the Greenhawk Canadian Show Jumping Championships tonight in the Royal Horse Show, positioning himself well heading into tomorrow evening’s final.Although Candele incurred four time-penalties when Game Ready lowered the height of the sixth fence, he was still able to post an impressively quick time on course to come out ahead of second placed Ainsley Vince and her mare Frieda.“I knew I was fast,” remarked Candele following the competition. “But I was surprised to win with the rail down. To win tomorrow we will have to be clear. Tonight was about placing yourself well to move forward tomorrow.”Vince, of Burlington, ON, made a last-minute decision to compete Frieda and admitted things could have gone either way for the mare who has not shown indoors in the last two years.“I’ve done this class many times before,” said Vince. “On opening night you need a solid round. She was really smart and handled all the tests well.”Vince’s conservative clean round put the pair into second place on an overall score of 65.83 seconds, barely edged out by Candele’s time-plus-penalties score of 65.27 seconds. London Olympian Jill Henselwood (Oxford Mills, ON) currently sits in third with a time of 66.94 seconds.Australian Olympic medalist Clayton Fredericks made his debut in the opening round of the Good Crop Services Indoor Eventing Challenge, following the show jumping this evening in the Ricoh Coliseum. Although he was unable to oust five-time defending champion Waylon Roberts (Port Perry, ON) from the top spot, he insists he stuck to his plan for the first round over what proved to be a much tougher course than was anticipated.“It’s always difficult to go into a strange arena on a strange horse,” explained Fredericks, who finished in sixth place following round one. “For me, part of it has to be building the confidence of the horse. The owners have given me a responsibility and after walking the course, I knew it was going to be tough. If you went too fast, your horse would get flustered. I probably could have gone a little quicker, but I enjoyed it and am pleased with how Wild T’Mater jumped tonight.”Roberts agreed with Fredericks, although he decidedly did not go for the “conservative clear round”, preferring to count on the “home court advantage” of coming in as five-time defending champion on a horse who was clearly comfortable in the ring.“My horse is one of the more experienced horses here,” said Roberts of Sable Giesler’s Evil Munchkin following the competition. “Tonight’s very challenging course seemed to prey on rider’s weaknesses – you had to be so accurate within a few inches, and if you were not, you were going to have trouble. I think we saw that out there tonight.”The only rider who has beaten Roberts for the overall title, Penny Rowland (Mono, ON), guided Roundabout, owned by Don Good, in the first round of Good Crop Services Indoor Eventing challenge to second with a clean round and a time of 73.07 seconds. Roberts’ father, Ian Roberts (Port Perry, ON) currently sits third with a clean round and time of 75.00 seconds.The Greenhawk Canadian Show Jumping Championships and Good Crop Services Indoor Eventing both conclude tomorrow evening in the Royal Horse Show before the Ontario Toyota Dealers Royal Rodeo returns to the Ricoh Coliseum Sunday, November 4th. Amber Marshall, star of CBC’s Heartland, will be co-hosting the Royal Rodeo once again.

KenCanning/iStock(SAN FRANCISCO) — A 6-year-old girl was attacked by a 160-pound mountain lion as she was walking through a park and was rescued just in time when an adult that was nearby punched the cat in the ribs.The incident occurred on Sunday just before 10 a.m. in the Rancho San Antonio County Park and Open Space Preserve in Santa Clara County, California, when the 6-year-old was walking with her parents in a group of six adults and four children when the mountain lion suddenly jumped out of the bushes and began to attack the child. “It came out of the bushes and right about when it grabbed a hold of the girl and an adult pushed the mountain lion and it ran off,” said MidPeninsula Regional Open Space District ranger Brad Pennington.The girl was reportedly walking along closely with three other children when the attack occurred and one of the adults who was nearby reportedly was able to rescue her by punching the animal in the ribs, according to ABC News’ San Francisco station KGO-TV.“Right now she has minor injuries,” said Pennington. “A couple punctured wounds to her calf. She was also treated for minor first aid and then her parents took her to the hospital.”The child who was attacked is expected to fully recover.The park was packed with visitors that day, according to the park rangers, who said that the preserve was experiencing one of the busiest days of the season with around 300 cars filling the parking lot.The Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office and Fire Department responded to the scene and the preserve was closed until further notice.Meanwhile, the attack itself has left visitors and those who live nearby worried and on edge about further attacks.“There are mountain lions that wander around here once in a while. It’s usually in the dark and not during the day,” said Cupertino resident Evelyn Horng, according to KGO.In the meantime, authorities are now trying to track the mountain lion to capture it and decide what they will do with it next.“We will immobilize the cat and put it in a large trap so it come to it. But prior to that we will take DNA samples from it so we can make sure we have the correct cat,” said Cpt. Todd Tognazzini with the Department of Fish and Wildlife. “I know that we wouldn’t leave the cat here.” Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.
