Half chance for normal monsoon

first_imgThe probability of the South West monsoon this year being ‘Near Normal’ is 39 per cent, ‘Below Normal’ is 32 per cent and ‘Deficient’ is 17 per cent, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has declared while making its first stage Long Range Forecast (LRF) on April 15, 2019. “The South West seasonal monsoon rainfall (June to September) over the country as a whole is likely to be near normal,” the national weather forecaster said. It also suggested that the probability of there being an ‘above normal’ monsoon is 10 per cent and that of it being ‘excess’ is two per cent. Also Read – A special kind of bondQuantitatively, the seasonal monsoon rainfall (June-September) was likely to be 96 per cent of the Long Period Average (LPA), with a model error of ± 5 per cent, said the IMD. “Overall, the country is expected to have well-distributed rainfall scenario during the 2019 monsoon season, which will be beneficial to farmers in the country during the ensuing Kharif season,” a statement by the IMD read. “Weak El Nino conditions are likely to prevail during the monsoon season with reduced intensity in the later part of the season,” it stated. The forecaster had already declared in a March 29, 2019 press release that “El Nino conditions are likely to persist in the early part of the summer season and likely to weaken thereafter.” Also Read – Insider threat managementEl Nino, which is the unusual warming of the equatorial Pacific Ocean, disrupts global wind patterns affecting climatic conditions in tropical areas like Africa, sub-tropical areas like India as well as the extra-tropical areas like North America. In India, there is a relationship between El Nino events and hotter-than-usual summers along with a decrease in rainfall during the monsoon. Most of the time, these events have also led to drought conditions. In contrast to the IMD, weather agencies in other countries had declared weak El Nino conditions at the beginning of 2019. In January, Japan’s Meteorological Agency, which is also the Asian arm of the World Meteorological Organisation, said El Nino conditions were prevailing and that there was an 80 per cent chance of an El Nino phenomenon staying till spring season of 2019. The Climate Prediction Centre (CPC) of the National Weather Service in the United States of America also concluded, around the same time, that weak El Nino conditions had formed in the equatorial Pacific Ocean. In a March 14, 2019 update, the CPC says that “weak El Nino conditions are likely to continue through the Northern Hemisphere spring 2019 with an 80 per cent probability and summer with a 60 per cent probability”.

ABB gearless conveyor drive for wider range of motors

first_imgInnovative solution fulfills eco design requirements, improves reliability, saves energy costs and reduces overall maintenance costs for mining operators.ABB’s innovative gearless conveyor drive is available for use on a wider range of conveyor systems. Already proven on larger motors, the newest drive is designed for medium power range motors (1 to 3 MW per motor) to make this technology economically feasible for a broader range of conveyor systems, including the use on mobile equipment in mining operations. The new solution can be applied for both greenfield and brownfield systems, and significantly decreases the cost threshold for gearless conveyor technology.Fewer parts and new motor technology increase the reliability and efficiency of the overall conveyor system. A permanent magnet motor specifically designed for mining applications is a core element of this system that contributes to its reliability and ability to perform in the most challenging environments.The gearless conveyor drive system eliminates the gearbox from the drive. This reduces the number of main wear parts, so less maintenance is needed, and lengthens the lifespan of the equipment. The expected lifespan for the drive train increases by more than 10 years when compared to traditional geared systems, to a projected in service life of 25 years.Other advantages include a considerable reduction in the drive system’s footprint, so it can be installed in smaller spaces, less weight, and a reduction in the instrumentation required to operate the system. The gearless drive design is also more energy efficient, requiring less power, and operates more quietly, thus reducing noise emissions.In July 2017, the pilot project of this solution was installed in collaboration with Lausitz Energie Bergbau AG (LEAG) in the open-pit lignite mine Jänschwalde, located close to Cottbus, Germany. The new gearless solution was installed on a high capacity (15.000 t/h) discharge conveyor of a bucket chain excavator in parallel with the existing geared drive. Both drives connect to the same pulley shaft to allow for exact benchmarking. The gearless solution has performed better in regard to dynamic accuracy and overall efficiency than the existing traditional solution.The operational data demonstrate the advantages of the gearless solution with less components .A gearless solution is more reliable (with a 50% lower failure rate) and requires less maintenance. It is meeting eco design and energy performance requirements according to international standards to support mine site’s environmental approvals or certification. The new drive also consumes 5% less energy than the other installed drive.“The interest of LEAG in this pilot project mainly lies in the expectations related to higher efficiency, lower wear and hence less expenses for repairs and maintenance,” said Peter Scholze, Head of Service Open Pit Mines, LEAG.  “These results were verified from measurements and analytics taken during operations in the past few weeks. At the same time, the project proves LEAG’s interest in a future-oriented and innovative technical approach. Thanks to the close cooperation between LEAG and ABB, the project could be finalized within a short period of time. Since commissioning has taken place, the drive has been running smoothly.”The onsite team was impressed with ABB’s quick and flawless project commissioning, The operations and maintenance team also found the new system to be easy to learn, understand, and use, without any major difference in operation or handling when compared with the existing systems/ technology.last_img read more

Sharp unveils expensive 7inch A71GJB Galapagos Android tablet

first_imgSharp’s new A71GJ-B Galagpagos tablet might look like just another Android tablet — but it’s not. It’s a brand-new eight hundred dollar Android tablet. And it’s only a 7-incher.At one point, Sharp had given up on its Galapagos Android tablets, all but admitting they couldn’t compete with Apple (and didn’t want to). The original 5.5 and 10.8 inch tablets were discontinued in September, but at least they stuck around 10 months longer than the HP TouchPad.Now, however, Sharp is back with a new 7-inch Galapagos. But unlike other manufacturers who are busy cramming the quad-core  Tegra 3 into their new slates and shipping Ice Cream Sandwich, Sharp has churned out a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 model running Android 3.2. The yawns continue from there: 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, 2MP front and 5MP rear cameras, microHDMI output, microSD expansion, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR. Its display pushes 1024×768 pixels. There’s really only one eyebrow-raising feature here: WiMAX support.But at $780, the A71GJ-B looks like it’s going to meet the same fate as Sharp’s previous Galapagos models — only much more quickly.The Acer Iconia Tab A100 is also a 7-inch Android 3.2 tablet, and it also offers 8GB of internal storage 2MP and 5MP cameras, Wi-Fi b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR.  Sure, it’s only got 512MB of RAM, but it’s also only $299. That extra $481 should be more than enough to pay for some sort of pocketable WiMAX tethering solution if you really want to go that route and might’ve considered picking up the Galapagos.Of course, the tablet’s scheduled for a Japan-only release on December 9th — so you might never have been able to buy one anyway.More at TechCrunchlast_img read more

Patrick Hutch protected by dissidents north of border as he prepares to

first_img Short URL By Garreth MacNamee Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Feb 27th 2019, 6:06 AM Patrick Hutch protected by dissidents north of border as he prepares to leave for Europe It is thought Hutch will leave for the continent in the coming days. GARDAÍ ARE LIAISING with the PSNI after Patrick Hutch is apparently keeping a low profile in a safehouse north of the border.Hutch was released from custody last week following the collapse of the Regency Hotel murder trial. Hutch (26) of Champions Avenue, Dublin 1, had pleaded not guilty to the murder of David Byrne (34) at the Regency Hotel in Dublin on 5 February 2016.Gardaí immediately put in place a significant security plan around Dublin’s north inner city, where Hutch lives, as well as around areas where other members of the gang live. But reliable sources have said that Hutch is now in Northern Ireland and is keeping himself out of the public eye by using a safehouse used by another Hutch associate. This man has escaped an attempt on his life in recent years. TheJournal.ie understands that Patrick Hutch is also receiving protection from a number of dissidents linked to the criminal organisation. Police officers on both sides of the border believe Hutch will leave the island of Ireland in the coming days.Hutch had previously received a Garda Information Message (GIM) – an official letter from gardaí that a person’s life is in danger. He was informally told before leaving the CCJ that this threat is still very much active, if not more so following his release. Multiple security sources familiar with the feud, which has so far taken at least 15 lives, believe that it is only a matter of time before a return to violence in Ireland or Spain. One said: “It’s the same old story. It’s another head for the other side to chase now. He’d want to get the head down somewhere safe for a while. There’s only so much gardaí can do for someone in his situation.” The Regency Hotel trial collapsed last week – mostly as a result of the death of the lead prosecutor in the case. Gsoc is investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of Detective Superintendent Colm Fox.Superintendent Fox was found dead in his office at Ballymun Garda Station in February of last year.The highly regarded detective was found dead on the evening of 10 February 2018 in his office at Ballymun garda station. His official firearm was recovered at the scene, foul play was not suspected and it was treated as a personal tragedy.

iPads Could Change How Harris County Deputies Assess Mental Health Crises

first_img– / 5Phase I revealed a savings of $26,244 over the span of 30 calls, according to an analysis by The University of Texas School of Public Health in Houston. It cited savings from either jail diversion, avoiding hospital transportation, or by not activating other crisis resources. .Final meeting of @HCSO_MHU, @TheHarrisCTR and @verizon before implementation of phase 2 of our telehealth pilot scheduled to start Wednesday, July 11th. Thank you @verizon, Apple, and @TheHarrisCTR for your collaboration.

It operates in collaboration with the Houston Police Department, and is also under The Mental Health & Jail Diversion Bureau: the newest bureau at the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.“Mental health calls are very, very dangerous for law enforcement,” said Gomez. “People in that type of situation are very, very unpredictable…. Unfortunately we meet them in their darkest moments, and we try to bring light into that situation.”Allison LeeDeputy Gomez responds to a call, as part of the Crisis Intervention Response Team, on July 13, 2018.The pilot program is wrapping up Phase II, which tests different software and utilizes counselors from The Harris Center for Mental Health and IDD, rather than only psychiatrists. The same local mental health authority is already involved with CIRT.Gomez said, so far, people have been receptive to the iPads.“Sometimes they won’t talk to police officer or be honest with us- but when you offer that option to talk to someone else- maybe via iPad- they’ll be more honest with the clinician or psychiatrist that they are, indeed, suicidal or they’re actually hearing voices, or they’re in a mental health crisis,” said Gomez. The nation’s fourth largest jail resides in Harris County, with a population of about 9,000 inmates. The Harris County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) says a quarter of those inmates suffer from some form of mental illness.To help alleviate a slew of problems that come with over-jailing or over-hospitalizing people who have a mental illness, the sheriff’s department unveiled a Telepsychiatry pilot program. Since its launch in December, the program has garnered attention from California to Canada. Harris County officials believe it’s one of the first programs of its kind, if not the first program of its kind.The new initiative connects deputies in the field with counselors and psychiatrists on iPads.

But during Phase II of this program, he is communicating with Gomez and citizens via the iPad.Harris County Sheriff’s OfficeDeputy Gomez gives an iPad to a woman for assessment on July 13, 2018.Hawkins has been responding to calls with the Crisis Intervention Response Team for over a decade, and is new to this process with the sheriff’s office.“We are able to be there at the person’s worst time in their life and intervene and help and give then comfort and aid at that time, that they’re having extreme distress,” said Hawkins. “And it’s a really privilege to be a part of this, whether it’s on iPad or in a patrol car.”Allison LeeDeputy Jose Gomez and clinician Michael Hawkins reconnect after an in-field assessment using the iPad on July 13, 2018.Since Harris County is so large, at over 1,700 square miles, there is potential for a lot of travel time when responding to calls. This program minimizes some of that, and allows clinicians to be immediately available to other deputies who may need assistance.Although, Hawkins said, it’s a little more challenging to establish rapport over an iPad. But he’s going to try to overcome that, he said.“As a clinician and a counselor, I prefer to be face-to-face. Because I can pick up on so many different things and establish rapport,” said Hawkins. “But I definitely can see benefits, absolutely, of time and manpower of this program.”  The pilot functions in accordance with HIPPA laws of privacy..@HCSO_MHU, @verizon, @TheHarrisCTR & Apple Computers met yesterday to discuss implementation of phase 2 of the #telehealth program in the @HCSOTexas.

It connects EMS personnel with doctors, in order to better triage in the field.And Program Manager Frank Webb, of HCSO’s Bureau of Mental Health and Jail Diversion, said the same model can be effective to assess mental health situations.“Hospital emergency departments across the nation are being inundated with people mental health problems brought in by law enforcement,” said Webb. “Medical directors at a lot of these hospitals have told me a lot of these people don’t need to be there.”Harris County Sheriff’s OfficeA concerned mother talks with a psychiatrist via an iPad about her teenage daughter, during Phase I of the HCSO Telepsychiatry pilot program.Webb said the ability to bring mental health care straight to people who need it is key. He recounted a call during Phase I, with a teenage daughter who reportedly had suicidal thoughts. The mother was concerned, because she couldn’t get an appointment with a psychiatrist for another two weeks.“Her daughter got worse, so she called… and she was able to actually talk to the psychiatrist via the iPad in her bedroom- both the mother and the daughter,” said Webb. “So, it’s pretty amazing that you can bring psychiatry into someone’s house.”The first two phases only involved three deputies for a few dozen calls. If all goes as planned, the next phase is a 6 month initiative involving 25 deputies, said Webb. Sharelast_img read more

Multiple copies of the Standard Model could solve the hierarchy problem

first_img Citation: Multiple copies of the Standard Model could solve the hierarchy problem (2017, January 4) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2017-01-multiple-standard-hierarchy-problem.html This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Dark matter may be hiding in a hidden sector Journal information: Physical Review Letters So the hierarchy problem is often stated as a problem with the Higgs field: specifically, why is the Higgs vacuum expectation value so much smaller than the largest energy scales in the universe, in particular the scale at which gravity (by far the weakest of the forces) becomes strong? Reconciling this apparent discrepancy would impact physicists’ understanding of particle physics at the most fundamental level.”The hierarchy problem is one of the deepest questions in particle physics, and almost every one of its known solutions corresponds to a different vision of the universe,” Raffaele Tito D’Agnolo, a physicist at Princeton, told Phys.org. “Identifying the correct answer will not just solve a conceptual puzzle, but will change the way we think about particle physics.”In a new paper published in Physical Review Letters, D’Agnolo and his coauthors have proposed a solution to the hierarchy problem that involves multiple (up to 1016) copies of the Standard Model, each with a different Higgs vacuum expectation value. In this model, the universe consists of many sectors, each of which is governed by its own version of the Standard Model with its own Higgs vacuum expectation value. Our sector is the one with the smallest nonzero value.If, in the very early universe, all sectors had comparable temperatures and seemingly equal chances of dominating, why did our sector, with the smallest nonzero Higgs vacuum expectation value, come to dominate? The physicists introduce a new mechanism called a “reheaton field” that explains this by reheating the universe as it decays. The physicists show that there are several ways in which the reheaton field could have preferentially decayed into and deposited the majority of its energy into the sector with the smallest Higgs vacuum expectation value, causing this sector to eventually dominate and become our observable universe.Compared to other proposed solutions to the hierarchy problem, such as supersymmetry and extra dimensions, the new proposal—which the physicists call “N-naturalness”—is different in that the solution does not rely solely on new particles. Although the new proposal shares some features with both supersymmetry and extra dimensions, one of its unique characteristics is that it is not only new particles, but more importantly cosmological dynamics, that is central to the solution. “N-naturalness is qualitatively different from the solutions to the hierarchy problem proposed in the past, and it predicts signals in cosmic microwave background (CMB) experiments and large-scale structure surveys, two probes of nature that were thought to be unrelated to the problem,” D’Agnolo said.As the physicists explain, it should be possible to detect signatures of N-naturalness by searching for signs of the existence of other sectors. For instance, future CMB experiments might detect extra radiation and changes in neutrino cosmology, since neutrinos in nearby sectors are expected to be slightly heavier and less abundant than those in our sector. This approach is interesting for another reason: the neutrinos in the other sectors are also a viable dark matter candidate, which the researchers plan to study in more detail. Future experiments might also find signatures of N-naturalness in the form of a larger-than-expected mass of axion particles, as well as supersymmetric signatures due to possible connections to supersymmetry.”If new relativistic species are not detected by the next generation of CMB experiments (Stage 4), then I will stop thinking of N-naturalness as a possible solution to the hierarchy problem,” D’Agnolo said. “According to the current timeline, these experiments should start taking data around 2020 and reach their physics goals in approximately five years.” (Phys.org)—One of the unanswered questions in particle physics is the hierarchy problem, which has implications for understanding why some of the fundamental forces are so much stronger than others. The strengths of the forces are determined by the masses of their corresponding force-carrying particles (bosons), and these masses in turn are determined by the Higgs field, as measured by the Higgs vacuum expectation value.center_img Explore further More information: Nima Arkani-Hamed et al. “Solving the Hierarchy Problem at Reheating with a Large Number of Degrees of Freedom.” Physical Review Letters.

Sauna Bathing May Have a Wide Range of Medical Benefits

first_img(Credit: Tero Vesalainen/shutterstock)In Finland, sauna bathing traditionally involves bathers not only immersing themselves in steam, but also slapping themselves with branches until their skin is red and tingling, then diving into cold water or rolling in the snow. Now researchers find that sauna bathing — even of the conventional kind, sans cold and slapping — may have a wide range of health benefits.Saunas bathe people in steam from water thrown on heated stones. This tradition may have its origins in baths described by the ancient Greek historian Herodotus, who noted that Scythians in central Eurasia threw water and hempseed on red-hot rocks to generate an intoxicating steam.Sauna bathing has traditionally been used for pleasure and relaxation, but emerging evidence suggests it may have health benefits as well. To learn more, cardiologist Jari Laukkanen at the University of Jyväskylä in Finland and his colleagues conducted a comprehensive review of the existing medical research on Finnish sauna bathing.The researchers found that sauna bathing appears linked to a reduction in the risk of vascular diseases, like high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease, as well as neurocognitive diseases like Alzheimer’s, and other conditions. It could even help lung diseases and mental health disorders. Furthermore, the investigators found that sauna bathing seemed to alleviate skin diseases, arthritis, headache and flu.“Based on the current knowledge and evidence, sauna bathing may have beneficial effects,” Laukkanen says. “It is one important way to decrease cardiovascular risk, in addition to other lifestyle habits such as exercise and good diet.”There are several ways that sauna bathing might achieve these benefits, Laukkanen says. First, saunas are relaxing, decreasing blood pressure. This relaxing effect may stem from beneficial changes in the blood levels of hormones like pain-relieving endorphins.In addition, sauna bathing makes nearly all of a person’s blood vessels dilate, which may decrease blood pressure and reduce arterial stiffness. Sweating can also decrease blood pressure — in a typical sauna bathing session, a person loses more than a pound of sweat on average.Furthermore, during sauna bathing, the heart typically beats at the kinds of rates seen during moderately intense exercise, Laukkanen says. “Saunas are like exercise training for the cardiovascular system.” he adds.Moreover, saunas may also boost the immune system. So they could even reduce susceptibility to common colds and prevent infectious diseases/Although Laukkanen says that sauna bathing appeared safe for people with stable cardiovascular disease, he cautioned that it could prove harmful to people in an unstable condition, like patients with coronary artery disease or who recently experienced a heart attack. Moreover, the researchers note that a combination of sauna bathing and alcohol consumption may increase the risk of potentially deadly events.All in all, one benefit that sauna bathing may have over other ways to reduce risk of cardiovascular disease is that it is pleasant. That’s opposed to tips “such as ‘you must reduce body weight, don’t eat unhealthy food, don’t stress, don’t smoke’,” Laukkanen said. “This may a fun way to reduce your risk.”The scientists detailed their findings online August 1 in the Mayo Clinic Proceedings.last_img read more

A Cardinals win along with a New Orleans Saints loss or tie to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will get Arizona in, just as a Saints loss along with a Cardinals tie. A Cardinals loss or a Saints win, though, would mean the season ends Sunday. “It’s strange, man,” rookie running back Andre Ellington said. “It’s been a long season and you know, just to come to an end is not something you want to do right now. You obviously want to make it to the playoffs. “We’ve just got to handle business on Sunday and see where it goes from there.”At the very least, the Cardinals are in a position to where their final regular season game could be for something, which has not been the case the last few seasons. “It’s fun to have the last one count,” Arians said. “That’s what we wanted all year, for this game to matter, and it matters.” TEMPE, Ariz. — Obviously, the Arizona Cardinals do not want Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers to be their last of the season. However, that does not mean they are unaware of the possibility that they have held their last Friday practice of the season and could be in the mist of their season’s final days.“I’ve been in a bunch of these, where the last one counts and you don’t know what’s going to happen on Sunday with the other teams,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said. “But this team has a chance to make history and that’s all we talked about all week, is the possibility of tying the franchise record for wins and let the rest of the chips fall where they may.”last_img read more

Failure to renew the TPS designation will weaken Haiti’s economy and impede its ability to recover completely and improve its security" Rubio wrote in the Miami HeraldCritics of the decision said it does not match the reality on the ground in Haiti"It appears ideology won over a practical application of the law" said Kevin Appleby senior director of the New York-based Center for Migration StudiesRocio Saenz executive vice president of the Service Employees International Union which claims thousands of members living here under TPS called the decision "heartbreaking and harmful in every way""Besides the human toll on Haitian TPS recipients and their families it will be costly for their employers ruinous to the up and coming neighborhoods where they often live and destablilizing to their countries of origin" Saenz saidTPS holders who include a relatively small number of Africans in addition to Central Americans and Haitians "have more than 270000 US-born children" she said in a statement "and thousands of grandchildren After all of this time no conceivable purpose is served by upending all of that and ordering them to return to some of the most dangerous and precarious countries on earth"But the senior official one of several who spoke to reporters under the condition of anonymity set by the administration said that "the law is relatively explicit that if the conditions on the ground do not support a TPS designation then the secretary must terminate"Duke had "assessed overall that extraordinary temporary conditions" that justified the designation in the first place "had sufficiently improved such that they no longer prevent nationals of Haiti from returning" the official saidAs the Haitian status was due to expire last spring then-DHS Secretary John Kelly extended it for six months saying that conditions might not warrant further extension Kelly now White House chief of staff visited Haiti shortly after that initial announcement and later joined Vice President Mike Pence for a meeting in Miami with Haitian President Jovenel MoiseDuke in her statement said that she met recently in Washington with Haiti’s foreign minister and the Haitian ambassador to the United States and consulted other US government agencies"In 2017 alone" Duke said "US Citizenship and Immigration Services conducted extensive outreach to the Haitian communities throughout the country" Florida Sen Bill Nelson D hosted a meeting last week with Duke to which all members of the state’s congressional delegation were invitedDays before the Nicaraguan and Honduran decisions were announced Secretary of State Rex Tillerson informed Duke that the State Department assessed that TPS was no longer necessary for the Central Americans or HaitiansThe senior official who briefed reporters said that the 18-month "wind-down" period for the Haitians was enough time "to allow families with US-born children to make decisions about what to do and make arrangements"Some immigration experts have speculated that many Haitians are likely to seek residency in Canada particularly in French-speaking Quebec to avoid being sent homeAuthors Information: Karen DeYoung is associate editor and senior national security correspondent for the Washington PostNigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan on Friday re-stated the commitment of his administration to provide shelter for all Nigerians The President spoke through the Vice President Namadi Sambo while commissioning completed 324 Housing Units Elim Estate in Nike Enugu State He stated that the project was an eloquent testimony on the determination of the Federal Government to provide low cost housing for all Nigerians According to Jonathan “Today’s commissioning ceremony is another beautiful and verifiable pointer to the success of housing delivery and verifiable urban development strategies of our administration” He further stated that the past four years had witnessed our painstaking and remarkable achievements in many sectors stressing that “we are beginning to notice significant improvement in housing and urban development arising from the implementation of the many people-oriented projects “We shall not relent in our efforts to provide affordable housing for our people Housing is very important to social and economic development of any society” He expressed delight at the commissioning of the estate which was financed by FMBN using resources of the National Housing Fund (NHF) scheme and developed by NBP Projects Limited According to him “it is remarkable that to enable the scheme cater for affordability issues of individuals the estate offers 1 bedroom 2 bedroom 3 bedroom units among others at affordable prices to low and medium income earners “While commending the developers for prudent use of the resources I wish to say that this commissioning signifies the usefulness of synergy and corporation between government and private sector It underscores the effectiveness of the NHF as a veritable source of long term funding and justifies the need to strengthen the scheme through the recapitalisation of FMBN “Also the Nigerian Mortgage Refinancing Company (NMRC) which was launched last year will bridge the cost of residential mortgages stimulate availability of good houses to Nigerians and reducing affordability and gaps to finance” President Jonathan commended the developer COPEN Group for delivering on quality and time Earlier Governor Sullivan Chime of Enugu State said apart from keying into the Federal Housing Scheme his government was partnering with the private sector to provide quality and affordable houses for its workers While assuring of his readiness to continue partnering with the Federal Ministry of Land Housing and Urban Development in that regards he disclosed that “I have directed the relevant agencies of government to expedite action on the ministry’s request for land to provide a similar estate “Here in Enugu State we have fully developed 6 estates and all of them are occupied We found time to commission the Maryland Estate which contains 384 Units fully developed” The Governor however observed that since it could not meet the housing needs of the people alone it had continued to partner with reputable estate developers noting that “Elim Estate is a clear example of such partnership” He equally described the developer Rev Surveyor Ugochukwu Chime as a rare achiever and called on other contractors and developers to emulate the rare standard he had set The Chairman Senate Committee on Housing Dr Buka Aba Ibrahim in a goodwill message at the event disclosed that the National Social Housing Bill would be passed next week “so that the federal government can mobilize to build houses not just for the rich but for all levels of people in the country” The MD COPEN Group Rev Surveyor Ugochukwu Chime in his address disclosed that the 324 Elim Estate consists of 75 number of 3 bedroom detached bungalow 89 number of 2 bedroom semi-detached block of flats 32 number of 2 bedroom in Terrace and 128 number of 1 bedroom Terrace The Estate according to him equally contains a perimeter fencing and police post tarred access roads dedicated 500 KVA transformer water reticulation indoor sporting facilities and a shopping centre Chime further stated that despite all challenges COPEN Group has commissioned three Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria FMBN funded estates with 405 housing units in Enugu State alone The Minister of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi says the federal government of Nigeria has paid compensation to all residents affected by the ongoing new Lagos-Ibadan Standard Gauge lines Amaechi disclosed this on Tuesday at Papalanto in Ogun State during his monthly visit and oversight functions to the constructions sites of the project According to him “We refuse to go by train today basically to see the right of way There is only a place after Ijoko where we have issue with the right of way “We have finished negotiations with them and they have finished the compensations to the affected residents “The contractors will start work from the axis and the construction continues” he said Speaking further the minister said the only challenge confronting the contractor the Chinese Civil Engineering Construction Company (CCECC) now was the Ogun River “We still have problems with gas and cables As for the barracks the Army has given us the barracks where it was affected and work will start at Ebute Metta very soon as a result of the development “As for the Ogun River we are consulting the state government to assist us in the course so as to fast track the project in that axis “We have started battling with time schedule due to these utilities but l’m sure the projects will be delivered in due time” he added According to him the government was monitoring the contractor to fast-tract the project completion for the benefit of the people by the end of the year

League contract when he was arrested at his home in June 2013 and charged with murder Prosecution witnesses at his two trials painted a picture of a troubled man with a history of drug use and
