Shell va envoyer un bateau pour forer en Guyane

first_imgShell va envoyer un bateau pour forer en GuyaneLe bateau de forage de la compagnie pétrolière Shell arrivera en Guyane à la mi-juin. Une fois sur place, les premières opérations de forage viseront à “évaluer la découverte” d’un gisement qui remonte à l’an passé.Le président de Shell France, Patrick Roméo, a indiqué que le bateau de forage de la compagnie rallierait la Guyane à la mi-juin. M. Roméo a rappelé que sa société avait déposé “un dossier pour quatre forages à partir de juin de cette année et jusque juin de l’année prochaine”, et qu’il était actuellement “en attente d’autorisation”. Celle-ci concerne une zone d’environ 24.100 kilomètres carrés.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Cité par l’AFP, M. Roméo explique que le premier forage visera à “évaluer la découverte” d’un gisement. Il interviendra à proximité du forage de 2011 et permettra de voir “si la couche d’hydrocarbures se prolonge”. Le second forage d’exploration, dans un autre gisement potentiel, devrait être suivi par deux forages supplémentaires l’année prochaine, à des endroits qui “dépendront des résultats des activités de 2011”. Mais Shell ne s’arrête pas là et prévoit aussi de réaliser une nouvelle campagne sismique, pour continuer l’analyse du sous-sol à la recherche d’autres réservoirs potentiels. Cette campagne “démarrerait début juillet”, a précisé M. Roméo. “On parle d’un projet qui produirait du pétrole à partir de 2019. C’est très loin”, a-t-il souligné pour ne pas donner de faux-espoirs d’emplois à certaines raffineries situées en métropole. M. Roméo voit pourtant à moyen terme en annonçant que “la demande énergétique va énormément augmenter” et “peut doubler d’ici 2050”. “La production va avoir du mal à suivre. Nous sommes à l’aube d’une période de pénurie énergétique” qui va entraîner une “montée des prix”, a-t-il prévenu.Le 1 juin 2012 à 17:28 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

IRS apologizes for targeting conservative groups

first_imgWASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service inappropriately flagged conservative political groups for additional reviews during the 2012 election to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status, a top IRS official said Friday.Organizations were singled out because they included the words “tea party” or “patriot” in their applications for tax-exempt status, said Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt groups.In some cases, groups were asked for their list of donors, which violates IRS policy in most cases, she said.“That was wrong. That was absolutely incorrect, it was insensitive and it was inappropriate. That’s not how we go about selecting cases for further review,” Lerner said at a conference sponsored by the American Bar Association.“The IRS would like to apologize for that,” she added.Lerner said the practice was initiated by low-level workers in Cincinnati and was not motivated by political bias. After her talk, she told The AP that no high level IRS officials knew about the practice. She did not say when they found out.Many conservative groups complained during the election that they were being harassed by the IRS. They accused the agency of frustrating their attempts to become tax exempt by sending them lengthy, intrusive questionnaires.last_img read more

Microsoft to lay off 18000 workers

first_imgLOS ANGELES — Microsoft announced the biggest layoffs in its history Thursday, saying it will cut 18,000 jobs as it streamlines its Nokia mobile device business to focus on using the Windows Phone operating system.Although the job cuts were expected, the extent of the eliminations is a surprise, amounting to 14 percent of the company’s workforce. It’s CEO Satya Nadella’s boldest move since taking the reins from Steve Ballmer in February. Ballmer announced the Nokia acquisition last September, a month after he announced that he would resign.In a public email to employees Thursday, Nadella said the changes were needed for the company to “become more agile and move faster.”Nadella indicated that Microsoft will largely abandon low-price Nokia Asha phones — which work on their own non-Windows operating system — and reverse a strategically questionable move by Nokia in February to launch a line of phones called “X” that supported rival Google Inc.’s Android platform.“The first-party phone portfolio will align to Microsoft’s strategic direction,” Nadella said in the memo. “To win in the higher price tiers, we will focus on breakthrough innovation that expresses and enlivens Microsoft’s digital work and digital life experiences.”Nadella added the changes are “difficult, but necessary.”Of the job cuts, about 12,500 professional and factory jobs related to the Nokia acquisition will be eliminated, including 1,100 in Finland. Some 1,350 Seattle-area workers around Microsoft’s Redmond, Washington headquarters were also notified Thursday, as were 1,800 workers in Hungary.last_img read more

Supreme Court to hear pleas on Centres move to deport illegal

first_imgNew Delhi : The Supreme Court on Tuesday said that it would accord final hearing in August on a batch of petitions challenging the Centre’s decision to deport illegal Rohingya Muslim immigrants to Myanmar. The top court is also seized of petitions which support the government’s stand to deport over 40,000 Rohingyas, who fled to India after violence in the Western Rakhine State of Myanmar and are settled in Jammu, Hyderabad, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi-NCR and Rajasthan. Also Read – National Herald case: Officer bearers of Congress were cheats, Subramanian Swamy tells court Advertise With Us A bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices Deepak Gupta and Aniruddha Bose asked the counsel for parties to submit their written submissions in the meantime. “Pleadings are complete. Parties are required file brief written submissions,” the bench said adding that the date of final hearing would be notified shortly by the registry. Also Read – Dehydrated elephant being given treatment Advertise With Us Initially, two Rohingya immigrants — Mohammad Salimullah and Mohammad Shaqir, who are registered refugees under the United Nations High Commission of Refugees (UNHCR), had moved the apex court in 2017 challenging the move to deport to Rohingyas on various grounds including that it violated international human right conventions. “Proposed deportation is contrary to the constitutional protection of Article 14 (Right to Equality), Article 21 (Right to Life and Personal Liberty) and Article 51(c) of the Constitution of India, which provides equal rights and liberty to every person. “This act would also be in contradiction with the principle of ‘Non-Refoulement’, which has been widely recognised as a principle of Customary International Law,” the plea said. Advertise With Us The principle of ‘Non-Refoulement’ prohibits States from transferring or removing individuals from their jurisdiction when there are substantial grounds for believing that the person would be at risk of irreparable harm upon return, including persecution, torture, illtreatment or other serious human rights violations. The plea had also sought a direction that Rohingyas be provided “basic amenities to ensure that they can live in humane conditions as required by international law”. Another petition was filed by one Jaffar Ullah alleging unhygienic situation at refugee camps in Haryana, Rajasthan and Jammu and Kashmir. The Centre had questioned the bonafides and motives of the NGOs and individuals seeking facilities for the Rohingya refugees, and stated that there is no discrimination between Indians and outsiders in providing health and education facilities. BJP leader and advocate Ashwini Upadhaya, one of the petitioners, has filed the plea supporting the Government’s stand and said “few NGO’s are posing more threat to the unity of the country than enemy country like Pakistan”.last_img read more

Oil prices rise as strong dollar oversupply weigh fuel markets

first_imgCrude oil prices edged up on Friday after falling over 2 percent the previous session, with analysts saying oversupply and a strong dollar would continue to weigh on fuel markets.U.S. crude futures CLc1 were trading at $45.37 a barrel at 0129 GMT, up 17 cents from their last settlement, while Brent crude LCOc1 rose 14 cents to $48.12 a barrel. The slight increases came after drops the previous day on the back of climbing U.S. crude inventories.Analysts said that oversupply would pressure oil markets.”We have seen few signs recently indicating a change of tack in the oil markets,” said French investment bank Natixis.”Oil prices will remain under pressure as long as the surplus remains in the market,” the bank added, referring to global production being 1-2 million barrels per day above demand.The strong U.S. dollar is also seen as a drag on commodity markets as it makes imports for countries with other currencies more expensive.The greenback has gained almost 5 percent against a basket of other leading currencies, DXY since early October as markets expect the U.S. Federal Reserve to be the first major central bank to raise interest rates since the global financial crisis of 2008-09.”Rising speculation that the Fed will raise rates will put further downward pressure on commodity prices,” ANZ Bank said on Friday.last_img read more

32 Howard Students to Travel the World for STEMRelated Research Projects

first_imgThirty-two Howard University undergraduate students from science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields will travel to eight countries this summer to conduct research projects as participants in National Science Foundation-funded Global Education, Awareness and Research Undergraduate Program (GEAR-UP).The program aims to increase global engagement of graduates in engineering and other sciences through study and research abroad. It is spearheaded by the College of Engineering, Architecture and Computer Sciences (CEACS) and supported through to a multi-year $5 million National Science Foundation (NSF) grant. This year, students will conduct research in Romania, Turkey, Mexico, Chile, Ethiopia, Thailand, South Africa and Tanzania. “National statistics suggest that very few African Americans have the opportunity to travel abroad to study or do research,” said Lorraine Fleming, Ph.D., the GEAR-UP director and a professor of civil engineering. “Our mission at Howard is to produce leaders for America and the global community. GEAR-UP is doing just that by allowing students a first-hand opportunity to practice as engineers and scientists in a global setting.”In Romania, Howard student researchers will study sheet-metal forming technologies, cyber security and cloud computing. In Turkey, they will investigate the impact of earthquakes on building foundations and low-cost ways to reinforce concrete.GEAR-UP students will also study earthquake engineering in Mexico. Other research projects for Howard students in Mexico will focus on saltwater and wastewater contamination of aquifers and earthquake engineering. Student researchers in Chile will study cyber security. In Ethiopia, researchers will investigate ways to use kitchen waste to produce biogas and the engineering properties of soils. In Thailand, they will study potential gene-based treatments to counter human hair loss. The participating international universities are: Lucian Blaga University, Sibiu, Romania; Istanbul Technical University, Istanbul, Turkey; Universidad Popular Autonoma del Estado de Puebla, Puebla, Mexico; Universidad Finis Terrae, Santiago, Chile; Bahir Dar University, Bahir Dar, Ethiopia; the University of Western Cape, Cape Town, South Africa; and Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand.last_img read more

Nintendo reveals Rumble Us NFC Pokemon figures game trailer

first_imgYesterday, it was revealed that Nintendo was set to take on the very popular Skylanders game with Pokemon Scramble U (Rumble U in the US) for the Wii U. Launching in Japan as a downloadable title on April 24 for $19, it’s a unique Pokemon game because it also uses Pokemon figures that are purchased separately for around $2 each.Today, Nintendo has launched a trailer introducing the game as well as sharing what the Pokemon figures will look like. You can check them out below:As the trailer demonstrated, you can position one of the Pokemon figures near the Wii U GamePad and they will appear in game to aid your fight. There will be seven figures available in total, including Bulbasaur, Lucario, Pikachu, Piplup, Torchic, Victini. The seventh is a mystery Pokemon Nintendo is clearly keeping secret to push gamers to buy them all.As to how they will be sold, Nintendo decided to go with capsule toy vending machines, which will end up being placed everywhere there’s a lot of foot fall and known gaming hotspots. This also has the added advantage (for Nintendo) of not allowing you to know beforehand which figure you will get, meaning multiple purchases before you have a complete set). And for those who want to collect them all, Nintendo is making available a clear carry case that will cost a further $8 to purchase.To own everything is going to cost a minimum of $41, which is still below what you’d typically pay for a boxed Wii U title. However, I see this as just an experiment on Nintendo’s part. If it proves popular then expect the next Rumble game to offer significantly more Pokemon figures and a much greater investment if you are a completest.last_img read more

New NoiseBlocking Material Could Drown Out Drones

first_img Though less publicized than its notorious air and water counterparts, noise pollution is a growing problem.And while modern sound-mitigating barriers may help drown out the whir of rush-hour traffic or contain the symphony of music within a concert hall, they leave little room for airflow.So, a pair of Boston University mechanical engineers created an acoustic metamaterial designed to silence sounds at their source, without blocking the movement of air.AdChoices广告By scrapping the traditional idea of a sound barrier, they instead created a new material—one with unusual and unnatural properties; in this case, the ability to exert an isolated influence on sounds.The final product: an acoustic metamaterial.“I’ve been working on metamaterials for more than a decade,” Xin Zhang, a professor at the College of Engineering and the Photonics Center, said in a statement. “But it was [study co-author] Reza [Ghaffarivardavagh] that gradually got me more excited about the fundamental idea of marriage between acoustics and metamaterials.”Even the most miniscule disturbance in the air formes vibrations, which, in turn, create sound waves. It’s the same principle that explains why, in the vacuum of space, no one can hear you scream.“Our goal is to silence those tiny vibrations,” graduate student Ghaffarivardavagh explained. “If we want the inside of a structure to be open air, then we have to keep in mind that this will be the pathway through which sound travels.”The mathematically designed, 3D-printed acoustic metamaterial is shaped in such a way that it sends incoming sounds back to where they came from (via Cydney Scott/Boston University)The basic premise requires metamaterial to be shaped in such a way that it sends incoming sounds back from whence they came.In a test case, the team 3D-printed a plastic noise cancellation device, then attached it to a loudspeaker. With the press of the play button, the experimental set-up “came oh-so-quietly to life in the lab,” according to the BU press release.“The moment we first placed and removed the silencer … was literally night and day,” study co-author Jacob Nikolajcyk said. “We had been seeing these sorts of results in our computer modeling for months—but it is one thing to see modeled sound pressure levels on a computer, and another to hear its impact yourself.”The team found they could silence nearly all—94 percent—of the noise, making any sounds emanating from the speaker imperceptible to the human ear.Moving forward, Zhang & Co. are eyeing their “super lightweight, open, and beautiful” structure for use in drones, fans and HVAC systems, MRI machines, and other everyday clamorous objects.“The idea is that we can now mathematically design an object that can block the sounds of anything,” Zhang said.“If you ask me and my colleagues, acoustic metamaterials is a relatively young direction,” she added. “It’s the future.”The full results were published in January by the journal Physical Review.More on Geek.com:Ford’s Noise-Cancelling Kennel Aimed at Distress DogsThis Compact Electric Backhoe Cuts Construction NoiseEars-On: Microsoft Surface Headphones Control The Noise ‘Mouth Fighting’ Worms Make One Hell of an Underwater RacketHow Designers Achieved the Sci-Fi Sound Magic of ‘The Orville’ Stay on targetlast_img read more

The closing price included $48.4 million in cash and the issuance of 4.1 million shares of MedQuist Holdings common stock paid at closing. The company received notification of early termination of the mandatory, pre-merger waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino (HSR) Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 on Aug. 15.The two companies are moving aggressively with integration plans, including organizational structure and product strategies.MedQuist has projected the acquisition of M*Modal, which was not included in the company’s recent guidance for fiscal 2011, will be modestly accretive to adjusted net income per fully diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2011. The acquisition will also increase the company’s annualized adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) run-rate by approximately $20 million by year-end 2012.MedQuist will also make $28.8 million in installments paid in cash over the next three years to M*Modal. The company funded the cash component of the purchase price from available cash.Additionally, MedQuist expects to incur fees and expenses, including additional restructuring and integration costs associated with this transaction, of approximately $13 million over the next 12 months. The founders and senior executives of M*Modal, Michael Finke, Detlef Koll and Juergen Fritsch will remain deeply involved in the company on a go-forward basis.In connection with and on the closing date of the merger, MedQuist granted inducement awards of 195,894 restricted shares of common stock to Michael Finke, 117,536 restricted shares of common stock to Detlef Koll and 78,358 restricted shares of common stock to Juergen Fritsch.  All of these shares will vest on the third anniversary of their grant date so long as they remain in continued service to the company. The restricted shares will become fully vested upon a change in control of the company or their deaths, or if their service terminates without cause due to disability or due to resignation with good reason, so long as they timely execute a release of claims. The shares were granted to Finke, Koll and Fritsch as “inducement awards” and therefore, consistent with applicable NASDAQ rules, did not reduce the shares reserved for issuance under MedQuist’s stockholder approved equity plans.MedQuist also granted up to an aggregate of 391,782 restricted shares of the company’s common stock to 89 M*Modal employees who agreed to stay on at MedQuist or a subsidiary. For each such employee, their restricted shares will vest proportionally over a three-year period based on continued service, subject to full acceleration upon termination without cause or resignation with good reason. The shares were granted “inducement awards” and therefore, consistent with applicable NASDAQ rules, did not reduce the shares reserved for issuance under the company’s stockholder approved equity plans.For more information: www.medquist.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Feature | Information Technology | June 27, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr Smart Algorithm Extracts Data from Radiology Reports Radiology reports may contain information essential to figuring out a patient’s condition. read more News | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | July 02, 2019 Konica Minolta Healthcare Partners With DiA Imaging Analysis for AI-based Cardiac Ultrasound Analysis DiA Imaging Analysis has partnered with Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas Inc. to expand analysis capabilities of… read more last_img read more

Ethereum Constantinople hard fork to move Ethereum from PoW proofofwork to PoS

first_imgThe Ethereum development team streamed a live meeting recently. In it, they talked about a hard fork on the Ethereum blockchain. A hard fork is a drastic change in the platform’s protocol. This hard fork named ‘Constantinople’ is a step to get closer to moving Ethereum from a proof-of-work (PoW) to a proof-of-stake model (PoS). The meeting happened on 31st August and did not involve Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin. Proof-of-stake models will affect mineable coins. This is known as a “difficulty bomb” which the dev team decided to delay for another year. Till then ETH will still be mineable as usual including ASIC cards. The difficulty bomb will act as a deterrent for miners who choose to continue using PoW, after Ethereum shifts to PoS with speculations signaling early next year. After the implementation, mining will stay but the rewards will be less. The hard fork will reduce the block ETH value from 3 to 1, a reduction of 33%. This is in line with a PoS model where mining is not used to maintain the cryptographic integrity of the ledger. YouTube commentators viewed the move as a way to reduce block rewards and push ETH’s market price. Also on Twitter, some see it as a move to drive up the ETH price. There is no announced date for Constantinople to take effect, but there is another meeting scheduled in two weeks, in which more information should be made available. The ETH price is depressed as miners have to sell it to cover mining costs. As of now, Ethereum trades for about $284, a drop from $411 which was the price in early August. There are Ethereum Improvement Proposals (EIP) made that include proposals to reduce rewards, bitwise shifting instructions in EVM, simpler blockhash refactoring and others. You can read about the EIPs on GitHub. For more details, you can view the streamed YouTube video.
