first_img Previous Article Next Article HSE invites bright ideasOn 1 Apr 2001 in Personnel Today The Health and Safety Executive has launched its annual competition togenerate ideas for health and safety research projects. The competition has so far resulted in more than £5.8m of contractedresearch being taken forward in the past two years. Last year 61 organisations took part, submitting 164 proposals across 22areas. A total of 32 of these ideas are now under contract negotiation, with fouractually awarded contracts. The competition will give a “high priority” to collaborativeprojects, said the HSE, with the deadline for entries set at 12 noon on May 16.The four ideas where contracts have been awarded included one for aerospaceand defence group BAE Systems Defence Consultancy, looking into human factorsaffecting health and safety in the onshore and offshore hazardous industries. Others were looking at improving standards and the optimisation of”roll-over” protection in workplace vehicles, the measurement andcontrol of noise exposure from headsets and the impact of exposure to chemicalson human health. Dr Paul Davies, the HSE’s chief scientist and director of the HazardousInstallations Directorate, said, “The competition of ideas makes animportant contribution to advancing the frontiers of health and safety researchand technology.” www.hse.gov.uk/research/content/opps/mrm2001.htm Comments are closed.

President Santos Visits Fuerzas Comando

first_imgBy Dialogo June 12, 2012 On June 10, President Juan Manuel Santos visited and encouraged the Colombian commandos who are participating in the Fuerzas Comando competition at Tolemaida Fort, together with 21 special forces from the Western Hemisphere. “You know that in the results that have made our forces famous, you’ve always been there at the forefront. Continue on in the same way, because remember that we’re winning, but we haven’t won yet. The most difficult part, perhaps, is left, but also the most telling, and fortunately, we’re in the best of hands,” the president reiterated to the commandos. The head of state emphasized that the elite commandos of the Colombian Armed Forces are “the best of the best, and the best of an Armed Forces that are a source of pride for all of Colombia.” This, he added, is reflected in all the polls, the surveys, where they show up as the most esteemed institution by Colombians, and “that esteem is due to your daily efforts, your daily results.” “As commandos, you know that this doesn’t come about through spontaneous creation, it comes through intense training, iron discipline, internal conviction, and a determination that only commandos like you know is a raw material for victory,” he noted. The president highlighted the fact that the Colombian competitors were in first place in the competition, for which reason he called on them to maintain their lead until the final, on June 13. “Today, all the countries that came to compete have been admiring and appreciating the organization, the camaraderie, the spirit that we breathe at this Fort, which is the spirit that in a certain way demonstrates what is good and what is important about our Military,” he specified.last_img read more

Panamanian Security Forces Unite against Drug Trafficking

first_img Vice Minister Moreno: Belonging to a gang is considered in the scope of our Criminal Code as a punishable act, which entails a penalty. Nevertheless, there are three legal requirements established by Panamanian law: it must be proven that the group has over three members that attribute themselves to perpetrating crimes, such as theft, robbery, drug consumption, drug trafficking, kidnapping, etc; that there is a hierarchy within the gang, a legally-proven hierarchy between its members and, above all, that they have a territory where they operate. Vice Minister Moreno: Operation Martillo is an excellent form of international cooperation among regional nations and the United States. We have had remarkable results during Operation Martillo. The National Naval Air Service has managed to seize the highest amount of illicit substances in open waters with the collaboration of the U.S. Coast Guard. For us, it is very important to keep this activity in international waters, which has an impact on our regional security. The 8th Central American Security Conference (CENTSEC) was held in April in Panama, a nation that could be seriously affected by budgetary cuts in the United States if Panamax, an annual exercise aimed at training Western Hemisphere militaries to protect the Panama Canal, is cancelled. Diálogo interviewed Manuel Salvador Moreno, Panamanian Vice Minister of Public Security, during CENTSEC 2013 and talked about this and other issues. DIÁLOGO: How does Panama participate in Operation Martillo? DIÁLOGO: How did this cooperation materialize? DIÁLOGO: Is the problem of weapons that drug traffickers leave behind and that fall into the hands of young people also a problem in Panama? Vice Minister Moreno: We are very pleased that Panama has been chosen to host the 8th Central American Security Conference. We are a warm, open country; very inclusive regarding the participation of these events. We are firm believers that international cooperation, trust and mutual assistance among countries and governments allow us to do great things. Crime will not win the war: the good ones outnumber the bad ones. DIÁLOGO: Is it a crime in Panama to belong to a gang? Vice Minister Moreno: In recent years, the Panamanian government has integrated cutting-edge technology in its police forces, particularly on arrival and departure of people at Tucumán Airport. We have a facial recognition and identification system that can detect criminals who might be arriving or departing our country, so that we may perform intelligence, as well as capture them if there is any sort of outstanding warrant against them. The Police is making a dramatic effort, not only in terms of prevention but also in terms of repression, along with the Judicial Police and public prosecution, integrating those cases in which these young people are part of gangs, into the judicial system to make it a punishable offense and to impose legal penalties. [Then] we turn them in to the public prosecutor’s office, and bring them before the judge. Several gang members have been sentenced in Panama, and several gangs have been disrupted by our actions; however, the efforts must continue, because although it is hard, it is not impossible. We, the public and security forces, the National Police in this case, have taken internal preventive measures with the collaboration of other Panamanian ministries, so that we can keep young people away from drugs and gangs. Interview with Vice Minister of Public Security of Panamá, Manuel Salvador Moreno Vice Minister Moreno: I think that as long as we are able to keep working and collaborating, regardless of the decrease in resources from the U.S. and the Panamanian resource availability, the most important thing is that we have every intention, all the good will to continue our efforts in the fight against this scourge that is organized crime. By Dialogo May 22, 2013 DIÁLOGO: What is Panama’s main security challenge? Vice Minister Moreno: It is a problem, because we know that drug traffickers pay their collaborators with illicit products when smuggling drugs through Central America. These drugs remain in our regional countries, and provoke turf wars to maintain control of internal markets, of the so-called ‘narcomenudeo’ (street drug dealing), which increases social instability among young people in Panama, as well as in all Central American societies. We have a shared responsibility among regional nations to protect that interoceanic pathway, which is a world heritage, and from which everyone benefits. Regardless of any financial cuts in the U.S. economy, I believe that Panama and the regional countries will maintain the ability to respond and participate effectively in Panamax, as well as in the fight against crime. Furthermore, we have integrated the I-24/7 Interpol network, in order to extend communications with terminals at different airports, as well as on the border between Panamá and Costa Rica. We have also increased the communications system, so that all of our security forces stay interconnected through a single communication system of portable and base radios. Likewise, we are also adding other technological initiatives that have resulted in a direct fight against crime. We are having positive results. One of our greatest achievements is that we will obtain the capacity to secure the country, such as monitoring all of our coasts and our entire airspace with 19 radars (ten in the Pacific and nine in the Atlantic). As well as the installation of 14 naval air bases, that will allow us to control our territorial waters and suspicious aircraft and vessels. This system will integrate the CSII [Cooperative Situational Information Integration] system used in the U.S. in coordination with other countries in the region. For us, this represents a strong impact on the fight against organized crime. DIÁLOGO: Would you like to add anything about CENTSEC 2013? There was another requirement, which was the use of tattoos or graffiti, but our gangs stopped getting tattoos and making graffiti, and we have been able to avoid that requirement, although we have been prosecuting them and we have been able to imprison adult gang members, as well as teenagers and minors. Even though there is a special criminal jurisdiction for minors, the crime of being a gang member also encompasses minors. DIÁLOGO: What technologies does Panama use for these purposes? Vice Minister of Public Security of Panamá, Manuel Salvador Moreno: Our main challenge is to keep our people secure, in peace and quiet; to make them feel a sense of safety that allows them to live in peace with their fellow citizens and families, and for us to be able to provide that protection. That is the big challenge we have; hence, we have designed a robust security system integrated in several fields. And we are confronting this national security challenge with the cooperation of partner nations, neighboring countries. Vice Minister Moreno: With regional, Latin American and Central American nations, as well as with the United States, Canada and Mexico, we maintain a close relationship of information exchange, which has contributed to drug seizures and criminal arrests in real time. Thus, we have been able to counter criminal activities in our region, which also has a certain impact on local activities. DIÁLOGO: Do you think budgetary cuts in the U.S. will negatively affect military exercises, such as Panamax? last_img read more

Peruvian Air Force to Gain Technological Independence

first_imgBy Julieta Pelcastre/Diálogo January 11, 2018 In November 2017, the Peruvian Air Force (FAP, in Spanish) Electronics Service (SELEC, in Spanish) completed the second phase of development on the Center of Excellence in Electronic Diagnostics, responsible for detecting defects in electronic circuits and circuit boards used in multiple applications, such as avionics. In this phase the personnel got familiar with equipment, and performed diagnostics and repairs on various aeronautical components. SELEC seeks to regain, sustain, and increase the logistics capacity for electronics maintenance on its aerial platforms. Officials estimate the third phase will start in the first quarter of 2018. “This next-generation center helped FAP make a technological leap in electronics,” FAP Lieutenant Colonel Siles Manuel Vidal Rojas, director of SELEC’s Offset Program for International Procurement, told Diálogo. “The diagnostic center places us among the top in our specialty [electronic circuit and circuit board diagnostics and repair] in Latin America.” The Peruvian Ministry of Defense’s Offset Program is an international trade agreement between partner nations for the purchase, sale, and transfer of defense technology, training, and materials. The first phase of the project started with training Peruvian officers who learned procedures to repair equipment from various privately held U.S. companies. It ended with the arrival and activation of U.S.-made electronic diagnostics equipment at SELEC, at Las Palmas Air Base. “It’s a project split into three phases. Currently, the center is in the process of designing the third phase,” Lt. Col. Vidal said. “The goal is to achieve the maximum degree of technological independence to allow us to extend the useful life cycle and service time of the electronic devices the Peruvian Air Force relies on,” FAP Colonel Armando Pomar, commander of SELEC, told Diálogo. The center has next-generation technology capable of processing and updating the results of any functional testing done on electronic equipment. It allows for testing of electronic modules and circuit boards, among others, and has diagnostics tools to quickly detect and diagnose malfunctions. The center also provides reverse-engineered diagrams to test circuits that lack manuals and solve problems related to obsolescence or circuit reconstruction. “FAP’s avionics systems were based on analog electronic devices from the 70s and 80s,” Col. Pomar said. “Since the advent of new air fleets with digital instruments, the need arises for maintenance capacity of such next-generation devices.” The benefits “Over the course of a year [from July 2016 to November 2017], the Center of Excellence for Electronic Diagnostics worked on all types of aviation technology originating from the East as well as the West,” Col. Pomar said. The personnel adapted FAP’s weapons systems on its Tucano planes and managed to go operational with the U.S.-made TPS 70 radar system. They also repaired the anti-missile system for the Peruvian Navy logistics support vessel ARL-158 Tacna, and contributed to the upgrade of the Peruvian Army’s combat radios. In addition, they repaired some electronic circuit boards for beds of the Intensive Care Unit of FAP’s Central Aeronautic Hospital. “The center also provides support to the biomedical, mining, and transport industries,” Lt. Col. Vidal added. “The center helped lower repair costs and turnaround times for FAP aircraft. It can be about two months from the time we send electronic systems [to other countries] for repairs to come back to Peru,” Col. Pomar said. “Reducing turnaround times also enables our aircraft to remain operational throughout their missions,” Lt. Col. Vidal added. “The diagnostics unit has become a powerful tool for cooperation among South American armed forces, where, through technical cooperation, we build bridges of friendship and technology exchanges,” Col. Pomar said. “Specialists from the Argentine, Bolivian, and Colombian Air Forces visited SELEC to learn about the work of FAP’s Offset Program.” Development of phase three To move further toward technological independence in electronics, FAP plans to establish maintenance centers with the same technology in provincial air bases. In the third phase, Arequipa, Iquitos, and Piura will have a system for real-time maintenance assistance in order to decentralize the workload at SELEC, which will be responsible for what provincial centers cannot repair. The project will also be rolled out at FAP’s professional training centers. The Graduate Institute of Aviation Technology will train future specialists for the Center of Excellence in Electronic Diagnostics. The institute will have laboratories overseen by SELEC. FAP works with a great number of applied sciences and is always at the forefront of new scientific developments. “We’re training so that in the near future we’ll have all the tools we need to provide technological support,” Lt. Col. Vidal said. “FAP and the high command see the Center of Excellence in Electronic Diagnostics as a solution to all the [technological] issues that we’ll face for at least the next 10 years,” Col. Pomar concluded.last_img read more

Shows Worth Binging on During Blizzard 2016

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York By Ellie Schoeffel and Rashed MianWith a powerful Nor’easter slamming much of the mid-Atlantic Saturday, this weekend seems a like the perfect time to catch up on some of those shows you haven’t gotten around to or others you never thought you’d try but may now be willing to give them a shot. Some of these are time sensitive, considering that new seasons are weeks away from airing. Gather around the TV, folks!House of CardsThe hit political thriller on Netflix has been bit of a disappointment since its first season but that’s only because expectations were enormous. It still finds a way to get nominated for top awards, so the showrunners are probably doing something right. For the uninitiated, House of Cards follows conniving politician Francis Underwood in his crusade for power, and probably world domination. Now is a good time to watch, if you have yet to do so, because season 4—already?!?!—is set to premiere March 4. Some of Underwood’s misdeeds are tough to take but Kevin Spacey makes up for it and Robin Wright is incredible as his chief accomplice. X-FilesYep, it’s back. Fox is betting on huge returns after it decided to breathe new life back into the cult classic in the form of a mini-series starting Sunday. Reprising their roles as FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully are David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. Production began over the summer. The X-Files lasted nine seasons and has not aired since 2003. It also spawned two films. Now that you’re snowed in you can enjoy all 201 episodes on Netflix. Chris Carter, the creator and executive producer of The X-Files, said back in March that his beloved creation is returning after a “13-year commercial break.”Suits Returning after a shocking reveal in the summer, Suits chronicles college dropout ex-druggie Mike Ross’s job as a lawyer for a high powered New York city law-firm despite never attending law school. The show chronicles his work on high-stakes cases with boss Harvey Specter, with ferocious rivalries, passionate love affairs, and non-stop drama in a law office setting. This show’s creators are truly committed to never allowing the office to be “normal,” and is described as one of the most dynamic shows on television through its exploration of the ambition that drives us, and the upcoming episode has been heralded by critics as “the best of the series.” Season 5 returns to USA on Wednesday, Jan. 27.ArrowFollowing spoiled billionaire Oliver Queen’s transformation after spending five years shipwrecked on a hostile island, life as a corruption and crime fighting vigilante is seen in exciting detail. By day, in all appearances same wealthy billionaire, and by night a hooded hero, Queen attempts to right the wrongs of his father using a bow and arrow as his choice weapon on his numerous missions to kill wealthy criminals and halt the crime that broke out in his absence. Fans will learn the answers to long-standing questions in the newest season, featuring many flash-forwards and dramatic twists. Action heavy and full of twists, lovers of this show can further indulge in it’s spin offs, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow. Next episode of Season 4 airs Jan. 27 on Ch. 11.Jane the VirginHardworking, dedicated, Catholic Jane has her life figured out, until it is turned upside down when she is accidentally inseminated by a specimen meant for the patient in the next room. This situation gets even crazier when she learns the donor is her (rather attractive) boss Rafael who happens to be married, and Jane must deal the fallout of the accident, and many more surprises that come her way (like the arrival of her estranged famous father). Full of agendas, affairs, and drama, this show is one of the most-talked about of the past year, and has received much critical acclaim. Next episode airs Jan. 25 on Ch. 11.The Good WifeWinner of 5 Emmys and a Golden Globe, this long running political drama follows Alicia Florrick’s return to her old job as a litigator following the arrest of her state attorney husband notorious for political corruption and a sex scandal. Driven and clever, Alicia must navigate the aftermath of her husband’s arrest, as well as encounter former flames and rivalries, all while being present for her two children, who she is fiercely devoted to. This show’s insight into political intrigue, law, and social media in society have been commended, and Alicia’s battle to prove herself in the courtroom and successfully navigate her complicated personal life make this show a great crime/drama/mystery pick. Though said to be ending, this last season is sure to be explosive. Next episode airs Jan. 31 on Ch. 2.last_img read more

CUNA backs amendment to keep NCUA out of appropriations process

first_img continue reading » CUNA is actively engaged and strongly supports an amendment to House appropriations legislation that would strike a section of the bill that would place NCUA under the appropriations process. The amendment was offered by Reps. Mark Amodei (R-Nev.) and Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.).Section 906 of the Department of the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2018 (H.R. 3354) would bring NCUA under the appropriations process.We oppose Section 906 because it would jeopardize the independence of the federal credit union regulator and unnecessarily comingle credit union resources with taxpayer resources, potentially causing credit union resources to be used to pay for other areas of government,” CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle wrote to Amodei and Aguilar Thursday in a letter supporting the amendment.“Maintaining a separate, independent federal credit union regulator and insurer is critically important to the credit union system, and the structural and mission-driven differences between credit unions and banks necessitate such a regulatory scheme: credit unions’ not-for-profit structure and their mission to promote thrift and provide access to credit for provident purposes are fundamentally different than other financial services providers,” the letter adds. 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Brewing tension: Coffee producers call for help as virus saps demand

first_imgIndonesia’s coffee producers and farmers are calling for support, including financing and product absorption, to weather the pandemic’s dire effects on upstream coffee demand.Rahmah of Ketiara Cooperatives in Central Aceh said on Wednesday that some 400 tons of coffee were being held under a warehouse receipt, 150 tons of which had yet to be sold.A warehouse receipt is a financing system that allows smallholders to deposit their harvest in a warehouse as collateral for a loan, in exchange for a receipt. “Farmers are already struggling. They want to sell but the offered price is low,” Rahmah said during a webinar hosted by the Cooperatives and Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) Ministry. “Exporters are also experiencing difficulty. They want to export, but there are no buyers.”Hendarman, a member of the Bengkulu chapter of the Indonesian Farmers Cooperatives (KPI), echoed the sentiment, highlighting the urgent need for financial support.“The most crucial part is the upstream [portion of the industry]. There should be a financing institution that serves as an off-taker so that there is a guarantee of the absorption of the coffee product being produced,” he said.Indonesia, the world’s fourth-largest coffee producer, saw its household spending contract by 5.51 percent year-on-year (yoy) in this year’s second quarter as the economy shrank by 5.32 percent yoy, Statistics Indonesia (BPS) data shows. Lower household spending has impacted coffee consumption. However, despite the pandemic, International Coffee Organization (ICO) data shows that Indonesia’s coffee exports grew by 1.1 percent year-on-year (yoy) to 668,000 60-kilogram bags in July this year.The statistics, however, have yet to represent the disruptions experienced within the country’s coffee supply chain, as government officials have acknowledged the need to finance the local coffee industry better during the disruption. “The president has instructed me to find ways to absorb these agricultural products, as they have yet to be fully absorbed by the domestic and export market,” Cooperatives and SME Minister Teten Masduki said during the webinar. The ministry is preparing multiple financing schemes to accelerate absorption, including financing for cooperatives that collect the coffee and link it to off-takers.The schemes have been endorsed by acting Aceh Governor Nova Iriansyah. “There needs to be support for cooperatives that export coffee in the form of of cheap financing to increase their purchasing power during the harvest season,” Nova said.He added that 70 percent of the coffee harvest in Aceh would occur between the end of September of this year and January 2021. An estimated 52,000 tons of beans will be harvested during the period. Financing organizations have chipped in to ease the financing burdens of coffee farmers and cooperatives.State-owned Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI) small, retail and medium business director Priyastomo said the bank had been supporting the country’s coffee industry, through the warehouse receipt subsidy scheme, among other initiatives. The bank is offering an interest rate of 6 percent to farmers, farmer associations and cooperatives that use the warehouse receipt system as collateral. The additional 5.25 percent interest is subsidized by the government. “The warehouse receipt is a government program that aims to support the continuity of production and sustainability in terms of agricultural product prices,” Priyastomo said. He added that the bank had channeled Rp 266 billion (US$17.9 million) to the coffee industry, including Rp 40.9 billion in the warehouse receipt subsidy scheme. Topics :last_img read more
