UN tourism forum opens with call to capitalize on potential of industry

In an address to the 19th session of the General Assembly of the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), taking place in Gyeongju, Republic of Korea, Ms. Migiro said tourism has become one of the world’s most important economic sectors.In one third of developing countries, tourism is the principal export sector, and the industry has remained resilient in the face of the global economic crisis, she noted.”There is little doubt that responsible tourism has tremendous capacity to help achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs),” she said, referring to the series of globally agreed targets, such as halving poverty, halting environmental degradation, improving maternal health and ensuring universal education, all by 2015.Ms. Migiro, who is Tanzanian, said she had seen for herself the benefits that tourism can provide ever since she grew up in a village on the slopes of the renowned Mount Kilimanjaro, close to the Serengeti plains and the Ngorongoro Crater.”Over the years I have seen how tourism has helped to change the face of this majestic landscape. Luxury lodges, paved roads and, yes, jobs. People from around the world have seen the wonders of my country — indeed the larger African continent — as well as its rich and diverse array of traditions and cultures. We have built bridges of understanding and appreciation. This is the great power of tourism.”The Deputy Secretary-General said that, despite the economic power of tourism, international donors and development finance institutions had not yet made the industry a priority area for either funding or engagement.”Nor is it high on the agenda of our sustainability policies. Let us work to change this so we can unlock the potential of tourism? I urge you to advocate on behalf of tourism’s potential to create jobs, attract foreign exchange, investment and know-how and stimulate local economies.”She stressed that tourism will only continue to prosper if it conforms to values such as freedom, equality, tolerance, respect for nature and respect for human dignity. 9 October 2011Calling on governments, donors and international financial institutions to “unlock the potential of tourism,” Deputy Secretary-General Asha-Rose Migiro today hailed the industry’s ability to create jobs, stimulate economies and overcome poverty. read more

SkiDoo snowmobile maker BRP Inc files for initial public offering of shares

Ski-Doo snowmobile maker BRP Inc. files for initial public offering of shares by The Canadian Press Posted Apr 17, 2013 1:08 pm MDT MONTREAL – The maker of Ski-Doo snowmobiles is launching an initial public offering.BRP Inc. says it is planning an offering of subordinate voting shares in the Quebec-based maker of snowmobiles, personal watercraft and all-terrain vehicles.The company said it believes the outlook for the industry is positive due to the improving economic environment, growth in new product lines and growth in international markets.“Things are reshaping after the crisis. We think people will want to renew with new technology and new vehicles, what not,” said Pierre Pichette, vice-president of communications and public affairs for BRP.In addition to Ski-Doo, BRP also makes Lynx snowmobiles, Sea-Doo watercraft and boats, Can-Am all-terrain vehicles and Evinrude outboard engines.BRP would not disclose how many shares it planned to sell or how much they would cost but said that information would be available in the coming weeks.BRP says it will also issue multiple voting shares to its current owners, who will continue to have significant influence over the company.The business was spun off from Bombardier Inc. (TSX:BBD.B) in 2003 when it was sold to members of the Bombardier and Beaudoin families, U.S. private equity firm Bain Capital and the Caisse de depot for $960 million.The company is currently owned by a subsidiary of Bain Capital, the Beaudier group and the Caisse. Bain owns half the equity, the Beaudier group has a 35 per cent stake and the Caisse has 15 per cent.Beaudier Inc. is a family-owned company controlled by Laurent Beaudoin, who is a former CEO of Bombardier Inc. and a son-in-law of Joseph-Armand Bombardier, the Quebec inventor who founded the company.BRP says the timing of the IPO is to help the company pay down a US$146-million term loan that matures June 2013 and a US$510-million term loan maturing in June 2016.“We want to reduce our long-term debt,” said Pichette.The prospectus, which was obtained through DisclosureNet.com, also reveals that the company paid $376 million in special distributions on April 13 and plans to pay an additional $155 million in dividends to its current shareholders prior to closing the IPO.It expects to spend about $140 million on capital projects in the current financial year, primarily to tool up for new products.BRP said it does not anticipate paying any dividends on its shares after the offering.“The company currently intends to use its earnings to finance the expansion of its business and to reduce indebtedness. Any future determination to pay dividends on the shares will be at the discretion of the board of directors,” the company said.At the end of its financial year on Jan. 31, BRP had $542.4 million of cash including $444.8 million of net cash flows from its operating activities.The company earned $2.9 billion in revenue and a profit of $121 million in the financial year ended Jan. 31. That compared with a revenue of $2.65 billion and a profit of $83.5 million in the financial year ended Jan. 31, 2012.Based in Valcourt, Que., BRP has approximately 6,800 employees around the world.

Online training development the focus of upcoming workshop

Many fields that once conducted training in writing or face-to-face with an instructor have instead migrated to online platforms.The lucrative business of online education — with an $180-billion market — will be the focus of an upcoming workshop hosted by Brock’s Centre for Digital Humanities.The event, held on campus Thursday, Jan. 17, will walk participants through the concept of developing online training that meets unique industry needs, while also exploring the growth of the online training industry and how its shifts have impacted the market.Led by training expert Michelle Dizon, “Packaging Knowledge: Online Training as a Product” will show participants how to create, package, maintain and bring to market a training product.A project manager with a master’s degree in Information Studies, Dizon manages a team of eLearning developers and LMS administrators at Security Compass, a software security company that offers professional advising and training in the field.  The workshop will be held on Thursday, Jan. 17 from 10 to 11 a.m. in ST105.Spots can be reserved through ExperienceBU.This workshop is part of a weekly series offered by the Centre for Digital Humanities that is open to all members of the Brock community.The full listing of workshops can be found on the Centre for Digital Humanities’ ExperienceBU page. read more

Brock graduate student one of 11 finalists as Canadian 3MT competition begins

Brock graduate student Leslie Nash is one of 11 finalists in the inaugural Canadian 3MT competition now under way and sponsored by the Canadian Association for Graduate Studies (CAGS).Brock graduate student Leslie Nash is one of 11 finalists in the inaugural Canadian 3MT competition now under way and sponsored by the Canadian Association for Graduate Studies (CAGS).Nash came second at the Ontario finals held at McMaster University April 24.The video of her 3MT presentation at the provincial contest is now posted on the CAGS website along with videos of all 11 finalists from across the county. People are invited to watch the presentations and vote for a People’s Choice Award winner. The contest voting will continue until June 2.Based on the videos from the regional competitions, a national winner will be selected by a judges panel that includes Nobel laureate Dr. John Polanyi, journalist Kady O’Malley and former CAGS President (2010) and Dean of Arts / Professor of History at University of Waterloo, Doug Peers. Judging is based on entrants’ communication skills, their ability to engage in the audience and their mastery of the topic.Winners will be announced June 12. In addition to a cash prize, the national champion will attend the CAGS Annual Conference in St. John’s, Nfld.Nash is a master’s student in Applied Health Sciences. Her research, supervised by Prof. Wendy Ward, focuses on assessing how tea flavonoids manipulate mineralization in human bone cells, in hopes to identify dietary strategies for prevention and management of osteoporosis.“I decided to take part in the 3MT because it’s very different from presenting at conferences. I changed my 3MT script many times as I prepared for the contest. I had to think carefully about how to explain my research in a clear and concise message and how to break down the science in a way that a general audience could understand. So the 3MT has been a great opportunity for me to work on those communication skills.”The 3MT concept has had widespread international popularity since it was developed by the University of Queensland in 2008. In Canada, UBC ran the first university based competition in 2011. In 2013, 16 Ontario universities sent representatives to the inaugural Ontario competition. This year’s regional competitions were a popular success. And Western University has already been chosen as the location for the 2015 Ontario regional competition.“CAGS supports the 3MT challenge because is it a great skill-building opportunity for graduate students,” CAGS executive director Sally Rutherford said. “It is also a public showcase of the importance and relevance of graduate studies – a theme CAGS has been working hard to promote.” read more

NHS agrees to fund drug for children with incurable Batten disease after High

“We are in talks with Nice as to what happens next. We thank you to everyone from the bottom of our hearts.”Prince Harry met Ollie on a private visit to Great Ormond Street Hospital in London in 2017. Samantha Barber, chief executive of the Batten Disease Family Association, said: “Today’s announcement will be a huge relief to all those families affected who have fought night and day for this outcome.”Brineura offers real hope for these children and the priority now must be to ensure all those who need it get access as soon as possible.”While we recognise the efforts made on both sides to reach this agreement, the reality is that it has taken nearly two years to get to this point.”The human cost of this delay and the anguish caused cannot be underestimated and we hope that efforts will be made to help others avoid this heartache in the future.”For now, we are absolutely delighted with this decision, which is a critical step forward in improving the lives of children affected by this devastating condition.”Simon Stevens, chief executive of NHS England, said: “This is another concrete step towards ensuring NHS patients with rare conditions get access to important new treatments.

Juniper augmente son arsenal antihackers en acquérant Mykonos

first_imgJuniper augmente son arsenal antihackers en acquérant MykonosMykonos a développé une solution d’Intrusion Deception System, c’est dire un piège à hacker, et Juniper Network vient de s’offrir les deux pour 80 millions de dollars.Fondé en 2009, l’éditeur en sécurité Mykonos a perdu sa liberté mercredi soir en étant racheté par l’équipementier réseau Juniper. Celui-ci présente le software qu’il vient d’acquérir comme seule solution du marché capable de détecter un pirate avant que son attaque ne soit en cours. Elle viendra renforcer ses propres systèmes de sécurité, et devra prouver qu’en situation réelle, face à l’ingéniosité des Hackers, elle parvient à rester indétectable.Le « Intrusion Deception System » est capable de retourner de fausses informations aux pirates qui tenteraient de s’introduire sur un serveur Web, et ainsi de faire échouer l’attaque. Elle aide aussi à leur localisation. « Nous interceptons leurs scans puis leur retournons plein de fausses valeurs », expliquait en janvier le fondateur de Mykonos Software à Clubic. C’est en fait un genre d’appât, qui attire le hacker pour mieux le piéger en temps réel. Juniper veut associer la technologie de Mykonos Software à sa « protection forte contre les attaques connues » pour protéger contre « les attaques zero day et les menaces avancées persistantes (APT) », pour la protection des terminaux, des applications, des réseaux et des infrastructures de Cloud Computing.Le 23 février 2012 à 16:30 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Taapsee Pannu takes a jibe at Kangana Ranaut using Rangolis sasti copy

first_imgKangana Rananut, Taapsee Pannu, Rangoli ChandelInstagramTaapsee Pannu may not want to indulge in any kind of argument with Kangana Ranaut or her sister Rangoli Chandel who had called her a ‘sasti copy’ of Kangana. But the Manmarziyaan actor couldn’t stop herself from taking a sly dig at the Ranaut sisters when a news publication termed Taapsee as the real queen of Bollywood.As soon as Taapsee came across the article which featured a juxtaposed image of her and Kangana, she replied to the tweet saying, “Arre arre! Aise mat boliye. Queen unhi ko rehne dijiye nahi toh phir copy kehlaugi, main ek actor his sahi hu bas aise hi mera sath dete rahiye. dhanyawad (Please don’t say like that. Let her [Kangana Ranaut] be the queen or else I’ll be called a copy again. I am happy being an actor. Just keep supporting like this. Thank you).”It all started when Taapsee took to Twitter to laud the trailer of Judgemental Hai Kya and didn’t mention anyone’s name (especially Kangana Ranaut’s name) in her appreciation tweet.”This is so cool!!!! Always had high expectations out of this one n this looks so worth it ! #JudgementallHaiKya,” Taapsee had tweeted.However, Rangoli had shot back at Taapsee for not praising Kangana in her tweet and went on to call her a ‘sasti copy of Kangana’.”Kuch log Kangana ko copy kar ke he apni dukaan chalate hain, magar pls note, they never acknowledge her not even a mention of her name in praising the trailer, last I heard Taapsee ji said Kangana needs a double filter and Tapsee ji you need to stop being a sasti copy (sic),” Rangoli had tweeted.While Taapsee chose to remain calm and quiet, director Anurag Kashyap had jumped to her defense. He told Rangoli that her tweet was in a very bad taste and looked really desperate for people’s appreciation.Later, when Taapsee was asked to comment on Rangoli’s insulting words, she said that she has decided not to react on Rangoli’s demeaning statements against her adding that she genuinely had no time to spare for it.last_img read more

Ecigarettes may cause wheezing in adults

first_imgPeople who use electronic cigarette are nearly twice as likely to experience wheezing compared to those who do not regularly use tobacco products, a study has found. Wheezing, which is caused by narrowed or abnormal airways, is often a precursor to other serious health conditions such as emphysema, gastro-esophageal reflux disease, heart failure, lung cancer and sleep apnea. The findings, published in the journal Tobacco Control, are consistent with past research that shows emissions from electronic cigarette aerosols and flavourings damage lung cells by generating harmful free radicals and inflammation in lung tissue. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”The take-home message is that electronic cigarettes are not safe when it comes to lung health,” said Deborah J Ossip, a professor at the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) in the US. Electronic cigarettes are extremely popular in the US Data from the National Center for Health Statistics indicates that close to 13 per cent of US adults have tried electronic cigarettes and nearly 4 percent currently use them. Although electronic cigarettes are marketed as a less harmful alternative to cigarette smoking, many concerns remain related to the long-term health consequences of vaping. Researchers from URMC analysed data from more than 28,000 adults in the US who took part in the Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) study. After adjusting for age, gender, race/ethnicity, body mass index, and other factors, adult vapers were 1.7 times more likely to experience wheezing.last_img read more

Amazon Partfinder checks PC component compatibility

first_imgAmazon Partfinder checks PC component compatibility by Martin Brinkmann on December 02, 2018 in Hardware – 11 commentsOne of the things that PC users have to make sure when they shop for new hardware for their devices is that the new hardware components are compatible with the device.It is quite difficult for people who are not very tech-savvy to determine if a component, e.g. a video card, memory, or processor, is compatible with a PC.Information is found in a variety of places, e.g. the motherboard manual or the manufacturer’s website.Amazon launched an option on its website recently that customers may use to find out if a PC component is compatible with their device or another component.An Amazon Partfinder is displayed at the top of the page if Amazon enabled it for the component.You may use the widget to select a brand and model, e.g. a motherboard brand and model, or a PC manufacturer and model name of the PC, to determine whether the component is compatible with it.Amazon may suggest that it is compatible, that it is not, or may tell you that it has no information on compatibility.You may click on a link to display a list of compatible components that match your query. If you look at RAM, Amazon will display compatible modules for the selected device or part.Partfinder works only for devices that have model numbers; you may select a prebuilt PC or laptop, or a component such as a motherboard. The list is limited to what is available on Amazon and it is quite likely that you may run into issues finding certain models or components.You cannot use the tool at this point in time to create a list of compatible parts if you plan to build a PC on your own. You could pick a main component, e.g. the motherboard, and check other components to ensure that they are compatible.PC users who want to build their own rig might want to stick with PC Part Picker for now or other services, e.g. Alternate’s option to build a compatible system in Germany.It is still recommended to double-check the suggestions to make sure that Amazon’s assessment is correct.Closing WordsI don’t know how popular Amazon is when it comes to buying all parts to build a PC rig from scratch. I never met anyone who did that; all prefered PC-specific vendors, e.g. Newegg, instead. Amazon seems popular when it comes to certain PC parts, e.g. a new Solid State Drive or a computer monitor though.Now You: Would you use Amazon’s Partfinder tool?

Canon Aquilion One CT Helps Gates Vascular Institute Adhere to New Stroke

first_img News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more December 12, 2018 — In stroke, time saved on imaging is time gained in the treatment window. The recently updated guidelines from the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association expand the window of time for clinicians to treat stroke.1 The Gates Vascular Institute in Buffalo, N.Y., has begun using protocols like Neuro One on the Aquilion One/Genesis Edition computed tomography (CT) system from Canon Medical Systems USA Inc. combined with Vitrea’s 4-D Neuro Perfusion software to adapt to the new guidelines.“The Aquilion One/Genesis Edition is enhancing treatment of stroke,” said Ken Snyder, M.D., professor of neurosurgery, radiology and neurology in the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo and Gates Vascular Institute. “One of the greatest challenges used to be the ability to effectively treat patients with wake-up stroke. The evolution of imaging provided by this technology has given the field the power to appropriately select and treat patients with a mechanical thrombectomy and treat those that were previously deemed untreatable.”The Aquilion One/Genesis Edition is capable of imaging the entire brain with a single 640-slice rotation with coneXact technology, covering up to 16 cm. The 4-D Neuro Perfusion package from Vital Images evaluates flow and perfusion deficits to help physicians identify affected brain tissue. The scanner’s Neuro One Protocol allows the acquisition of multiple low-dose volume scans of the entire brain during contrast infusion to provide whole-brain perfusion and whole-brain dynamic vascular analysis in one exam. To round out the system’s stroke capabilities, its Forward projected model-based Iterative Reconstruction SoluTion (FIRST) MBIR (model-based iterative reconstruction) improves high-contrast spatial resolution and low-contrast detectability in the brain, opening doors for the possibility of seeing early signs of stroke with CT.“The new guidelines reinforce the importance of time when it comes to the diagnosis and treatment of stroke, it’s a common theme throughout the guidelines,” said Adnan H. Siddiqui, M.D., Ph.D., director, Neurosurgical Stroke Service, Gates Vascular Institute and vice-chair and professor of neurosurgery in the Jacobs School. “We know the value of time when it comes to mechanical thrombectomies and the importance of advanced diagnostic imaging to improve outcomes in patients who present symptoms beyond six hours. The guidelines fortify what we’ve been studying and practicing for years.”A CT system that can quickly map the brain to help locate the clot is what helps doctors meet the demands of time during these critical moments. The Aquilion One/Genesis Edition makes use of intensive, clinically focused research and innovative technological developments. The system’s advanced perfusion maps assist in diagnosis and therapy response verification of stroke.Canon Medical showcased its CT technology at the 2018 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, Nov. 25-30 in Chicago.For more information: www.us.medical.canonReference1.

The award perpetuates the legacy of the world’s first scheduled commercial airline, initiated and piloted by Tony Jannus on January 1st, 1914 between St. Petersburg and Tampa, Florida. In accepting the award, Albrecht stated that he is very impressed by the aims and objectives of the Society: “Not only does it remind people of the pioneering role that early aviators played, the example they’ve set and the ground-breaking progress that is still being made in aviation [today]. The activities of the society also inspire young people to consider becoming part of it.” Skilled and enthusiastic employees are the backbone of the successful future of the entire aviation industry.”  Albrecht pointed out that the founding fathers of Star Alliance needed the same spirit, vision, will to innovate and courage as Tony Jannus, in order to launch this global cooperation which has turned into a respected model for success. “In this respect, it makes me very happy that my team and I in our day-to-day work keep alive the old virtues of the early aviators.”last_img read more

Central Bank of Cyprus to issue new AML guidelines

first_imgBy Stelios OrphanidesThe Central Bank of Cyprus is likely to issue new and stricter guidelines to supervised lenders governing anti-money laundering requirements as early as next week, a source familiar with the matter said.“There are two areas that need to be addressed more effectively,” a source familiar with the matter said in a telephone interview on Tuesday. “One concerns shell companies, which essentially are not engage in any business (activity) but are used to transfer funds from one place to another. The other serious issue concerns business introducers where things have to get stricter”.While the Central Bank of Cyprus has not taken its final decision about the specific contents of the new anti-money laundering guidelines, the new measures come days after the US praised Cyprus for its recent efforts in combatting financial crime.On Friday, the Treasury Assistant Secretary for Terrorist Financing Marshall Billinglea had meetings with central bank governor Chrystalla Georghadji, finance minister Harris Georgiades and foreign minister Nicos Christodoulides.Billingslea discussed with them “the positive improvements and reforms that Cyprus has made in its anti-money laundering regulations and regulatory oversight,” the US embassy in Nicosia said in a statement on its website. “Discussions also explored areas where the United States and Cyprus can continue to partner to fight threats to the international financial sector”.“Positive, long-term economic development requires a strong and well-regulated banking sector,” the statement said. “It is vital that illicit actors know that Cyprus is not open for business. The US was encouraged by the commitments made by Cypriot officials today and will continue to work together to combat corruption, money laundering, and other financial threats”.A year ago, Georghadji said that the US Treasury had threatened in July 2014 to ban the entire banking system of the island from transacting in US dollar unless authorities took action against the Cyprus branch of FBME Bank, which it described as a financial institution of primary money laundering concern. The central bank subsequently placed the lender under administration and subsequently under resolution.“We got the message and it is up to us to do what we have to do to get results,” the source added.In December 2013, the Central Bank of Cyprus issued its fourth directive on the prevention of money laundering and terrorist financing in an attempt to strengthen compliance in the banking sector. The new directive was based on the recommendations of an audit requested by Cyprus’s international creditors who financed its 2013 bailout.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoSmart Tips DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get A $250,000 Policy If They Do ThisSmart Tips DailyUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’UndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

we dont roll over at the request of an insulting bully, Japanese and Canadian allies [.] This kind of behavior has no precedent in the practice of diplomacy between allies The Europeans must learn lessons from it now" Left-leaning Libération‘s New York correspondent said “Donald Trump was ready with a smile for the G-7’s traditional family photo but for his supporters this calm image matters less than the offensive attitude of an American president against the world defending ‘America First’” The writer also warned that Trump’s taste for confrontation seemed to be contagious noting a hardening in French President Emmanuel Macron’s tone towards the US Japan The editorial board of the Japan Times the country’s largest and oldest English-language daily newspaper wrote “If US President Donald Trumps objective is to make himself the center of attention at every international event he is succeeding If he aims to undermine the legitimacy of international institutions he is making progress If however he seeks to make America great again his actions are working at cross purposes to his goal Those are the inescapable conclusions to be drawn from last weekends Group of Seven leaders summit” The Asahi Shimbum‘s editorial board warned Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to take stock of the new world order writing “Japan could end up lagging behind the radical changes occurring in the landscape of international relations if Abe continues to maintain a foreign policy agenda fully dependent on the Trump White House […] Abe should confront and act on the obvious fact that Japan cannot protect its own interests by simply following the United States” Italy In Italy whose new Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte backed Trump’s calls for Russia to rejoin the bloc a writer for the right-wing daily Il Giornale said “The new course that Italy is on has found an interested admirer in Washington If for a few years we had to put up with the Renzi-like Obama [referring to Italy’s former technocrat PM] Giuseppe Conte now has someone who will welcome him with a pat on the back to the Oval Office” The column said “finding the support of our "main ally" as he called him in the his speech to the chamber” was Conte’s first big aim as Prime Minister “And if courtship was what he wanted its what he got both in his positions on Russia and on tariffs” A writer for the daily newspaper La Stampa “If anyone still had any doubts it is now clear that the goal of the American president is to change the world order That’s what he was elected to do The question what he wants to replace it with and if the new model can really offer everyone more opportunities than the current one he intends to demolish” The UK Britain’s left-leaning daily The Guardian said in an editorial that the events of the summit marked “a watershed for the 21st-century democracies It is the moment when Donald Trumps disruption of the international order moved from annoying threat to damaging reality” “The US is the cornerstone of the post-1945 international order If Mr Trump wishes to remove that cornerstone everything else is threatened That has not yet happened The thankless task of doing what can be done to mitigate Trumpian disruption must continue But a fissure is growing And it got wider in Quebec” The right-leaning Daily Telegraph’s editorial board said “There is something to be said for his refusal to subscribe to the conventional diplomatic niceties Invariably final communiques are couched in bland terms to cover up differences that always exist between participants Mr Trump decided to make those apparent rather than pretend otherwise” “On the other hand one point of these meetings is to present a united approach on behalf of the economically developed democratic nations whose shared outlook and values frame the very concept of what has come to be known as "the West" Mr Trumps somewhat petulant and disruptive behaviour in Quebec calls into question whether such a political construct can be said to exist any longer under the current US president” Write to Ciara Nugent at ciaranugent@timecom WASHINGTON DC—Just over a year since oil began gushing into the Gulf of Mexico from BP’s blown Macondo well there is now a plan for distributing the biggest pot of money available to fund research on its impacts This morning the 20-strong Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GRI) Research Board which oversees the $500 million fund set up by BP for independent scientific research on the spill released its first request for proposals Scientists have been waiting for the document ever since an initial $50 million was distributed hastily beginning in June 2010 to four gulf state consortia and the National Institutes of Health BP set up the fund known as the GRI to provide $50 million a year over 10 years to study five themes related to oil spills: oil dispersion degradation environmental impacts and restoration technologies for cleanup and mitigation and health effects Known as RFP I the funding call is intended for large collaborations between multiple institutions Grants will range from $1 million to $75 million with a total of about $375 million available to fund four to eight 3-year grants said Research Board Chair Rita Colwell an environmental microbiologist at the University of Maryland College Park at a press conference here this morning The proposals will be considered via the same peer-review process used by the National Science Foundation (NSF) where Colwell served as director with the Research Board making the final choices Colwell said the Research Board is drafting a second RFP to award smaller grants between $100000 and $1 million and totaling $75 million for individual researchers and small collaborations (According to a Master Research Agreement between BP and the Gulf of Mexico Alliance (GMA)—an alliance of the governments of the five states surrounding the gulf—dated 14 March the yearly $50 million will also cover the GRI’s administrative costs) Language in the request for proposals strongly suggests that institutions in the gulf states—Texas Louisiana Mississippi Alabama and Florida—will be taking the lead on GRI-funded research ("In general the Research Consortia shall consist of Research Institutions in the Gulf Coast States" begins one paragraph) In fact many thought that a White House edict issued in June directing BP to work with GMA state governors on the GRI was meant to keep the money within the gulf But when asked Colwell said that collaborations don’t necessarily have to have a gulf state university on board to be considered "It’s anticipated that the gulf institutions will lead" said Colwell but grants "will not be restricted" to collaborations that include gulf institutions According to RFP I’s timeline grant-winners won’t be announced until 30 August; last year’s funding was meant to last until June Now scientists are worried that delays in organizing the GRI will leave researchers scrambling for cash this summer In addition to the initial $50 million which funded more than 150 projects NSF has doled out roughly $19 million to more than 160 projects through its rapid response program But that money is running out Christopher D’Elia the dean of the School of the Coast and the Environment at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge which received $5 million from GRI last year says "We’ve managed to plan to be a little in the field this spring" but "for the broader scientific community"—those whose NSF grants are coming to an end for example—"this is a real problem" Colwell has acknowledged that the GRI has been plagued with delays In late February she told ScienceInsider that the Research Board’s roster hadn’t been finalized until December; at that time she expected RFP I to be issued within 2 weeks When asked today what would be done to address a gap in funding Colwell said the board would be "working out a way to address the need if there is one to continue research that’s underway or to initiate research that will be funded through RFP-1" Overall D’Elia is relieved to see the announcement "We have a process that’s going to work" he says "The delays were just unfortunate" The Forum Communications News Service is the premier news wire service covering the Upper Midwest including the Dakotas Minnesota and Wisconsin In addition to breaking
