WASHINGTON – Canada and its European allies mounted a transatlantic counter offensive Wednesday to stop the Trump administration from imposing potentially punishing and disruptive tariffs on steel and aluminum later this week.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron made their cases separately to dissuade President Donald Trump from using a national-security clause in U.S. trade law to impose potentially crippling tariffs on Canada, Mexico and Europe, which were provisionally exempted from the duties when they were first imposed in March.Those exemptions are due to expire Friday, and if they are not renewed, Trudeau said consumers in both Canada and the U.S. would be hurt. Macron echoed those concerns, and issued a broader warning against starting a trade war.Trump’s two key economic cabinet members — trade czar Robert Lighthizer and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross — were in Paris on Wednesday to face nervous European Union counterparts and hear their concerns first hand.Ross stared down the concerns by questioning the efficiency of the World Trade Organization and other large institutions: “We would operate within frameworks if we were convinced that people would move quickly.”The steel standoff highlighted the rift over the rules-based international trade order that is likely to be on full display when Trudeau hosts the G7 leaders next week: a skeptical Trump on one side facing down the rest of the G7, including Trudeau.Macron and Trudeau are to meet in Ottawa next week ahead of the G7 summit in Quebec to talk strategy.Trudeau described Wednesday how he pushed U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence during a phone call a day earlier to exempt Canadian steel and aluminum imports to the U.S.The prime minister said the government is dealing with the U.S. on multiple economic fronts, including trying to forge a deal on a renegotiated North American Free Trade Agreement.Canada, the U.S. and Mexico are pushing hard to get a deal on a renegotiated NAFTA before Congressional elections in the fall and what’s expected to be a turning-point election in Mexico on July 1.Trudeau and his cabinet, as well as premiers and business leaders, have been mounting a full-court press on their American counterparts to prevent Trump from killing NAFTA.Trudeau also spoke by phone Wednesday to the premiers of Ontario, Quebec and Saskatchewan.“They all agreed to continue to defend the Canadian steel and aluminum industry from unwarranted tariffs and to stand up for the best interests of all Canadian workers and businesses,” said a readout from the Prime Minister’s Office.Trudeau himself has made multiple overtures to find common ground and forge a personal connection with Trump.Trudeau emphasized that when he spoke to Pence.“I had a good conversation with the vice president yesterday and obviously impressed upon him the fact that I’ve been having direct conversations with the president for close to a year now,” said Trudeau.“He seemed to understand very clearly that national-security issues don’t really apply when you talk about steel or aluminum from Canada.”Canadian aluminum is a component of American jets and Canadian steel is used to build U.S. armoured vehicles, Trudeau said.“We’re continuing to work, highlighting that it would be not great for Canadian workers and Canadian industry, obviously, but it also would be difficult for American workers, American jobs and American consumers, who will pay more for various products.”Macron told the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development in Paris that “threats over trade war will solve nothing of the serious imbalances.”In a dig at Trump, he said: “One can think about making voters happy by saying: ‘I have a victory, I’ll change the rules, you’ll see.’”The EU has promised retaliation if the U.S. tariffs are imposed saying a range of American products from peanut butter to bourbon will be affected.Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, who pushed the steel and NAFTA issues during her meeting Tuesday in Washington with Lighthizer, has also said in the past that Canada would retaliate.“I would like to absolutely assure Canadians, particularly those that work in the steel and aluminum industries, that the government is absolutely prepared to and will defend Canadian industries and Canadian jobs,” she said Wednesday in Ottawa, hours after leaving Washington empty-handed.“We will respond appropriately.”
This PC from Alienware breaks the boring PC mold in two ways: it looks more like a game console than a PC and it doesn’t run a Microsoft operating system. It also breaks the Alienware mold by not being priced over a grand!The X51 measures nearly 12.5-inches square, with a tapering design that narrows slightly at one end. It’s sleek design and piano black finish mean it can fit in your entertainment center just as well as a computer desk. It even has the capabilities to do so, thanks to built-in WiFi, HDMI output, and Nvidia GeForce GTX 645 graphics. Who needs a cable box? Streaming is the future.On the hardware side, this model won’t set any speed records, but has the horsepower to handle all the usual tasks. With a Core i3 processor, 6GB of RAM, 1 terabyte hard drive, and aforementioned Nvidia graphics, you’ll be able to speed through most tasks. Considering this same model supports Core i7 CPUs and high end GPUs, you can always drop one in on your own too.Forget the venerable Windows 7 or much maligned Windows 8, the X51 will boot up with Ubuntu Linux version 12.04. While some of you may scoff at the idea of some geeky, alien (har har…) OS, you should realize that modern Linux distros like Ubuntu all have a very friendly user interface and a huge wealth of resources on the web.This sleek little package is both stylish and functional, but rarely receives a discount since it is an Alienware wunderkind. Right now you can get it with a $50 discount and you can even add the Alienware-branded keyboard and optical mouse to it for free during checkout.Alienware X51 Core i3 + GeForce GTX 645 mini PC for $599 + free shipping (reg. $649 | via Alienware)Our other top deals:Lowest ever: Dell UltraSharp U2413 1920×1200 24-inch IPS Monitor with 3 year warranty for $422.99 + free shipping (reg. $599.99 | use BOTH coupon codes G8RBT2GDLSB$VD and 9QB025WNJ3X$MJ | via Dell)New model: Samsung 840 EVO 250GB SATA 2.5-inch Internal SSD for $182.99 + free shipping (reg. $249.99 | via NewEgg)HP Pavilion p7-1380t Core i5 Quad-core Desktop w/ Windows 7 for $469.99 + free shipping (reg. $599.99 | via HP Home)
Thon rouge : le comité scientifique de l’Iccat rend ses conclusionsLe comité scientifique de la Commission internationale pour la conservation des thonidés de l’Atlantique (Iccat) a achevé ses travaux concernant la saison de pêche à venir. Il plaide pour une importante baisse des quotas annuels, nécessaire à une reconstitution du stock de thonrouge.D’après le rapport du comité scientifique, un maximum de 13.500 tonnes de captures laisserait une probabilité de 63% à la population de thons rouges de se reconstituer d’ici à 2022. Pour relever cette probabilité à 100%, c’est à 6.000 tonnes que le quota de pêche devrait être fixé. Pour Greenpeace, cela signifie concrètement que la pêche industrielle devrait être interdite dès l’année prochaine. “On ne peut pas jouer à pile ou face avec la survie d’une espèce comme le thon rouge. (…) L’incapacité des membres de l’Iccat à gérer durablement la pêche au thon rouge et l’immense incertitude qui pèse sur l’état réel de la population de cette espèce devraient amener à la fermeture de la pêche industrielle du thon rouge” estime l’association écologiste.En mars dernier, les membres de la Convention sur le commerce international des espèces de faune et de flore sauvages menacées d’extinction (Cites) s’étaient réunis pour voter l’inscription du thon rouge à l’annexe I de la convention. Une proposition qui visait à interdire le commerce de l’espèce, mais qui a été rejetée. C’est donc désormais entre les mains de l’Iccat qu’a été remis le sort du thon rouge.À lire aussiCes 18 animaux méconnus à l’aspect étonnant pourraient disparaître avant vousAlors que l’Union européenne s’est fixée comme objectif la reconstitution de tous les stocks de poissons d’ici à 2015 dans le cadre de la politique européenne des pêches, elle “n’a pas d’autre choix que de demander une réduction des quotas à moins de 6.000 tonnes, pour ne pas être en contradiction avec ses propres règles” souligne Greenpeace. Les pays membres de l’Iccat se réuniront en novembre prochain à Paris pour étudier le rapport du comité scientifique et décider ou non de suivre ces recommandations.Le 12 octobre 2010 à 17:37 • Emmanuel Perrin
Comment le cafard a t-il échappé aux pièges de l’homme ? Le mystère enfin élucidé !Une recherche montre que les cafards ont su s’adapter en quelques années seulement, en modifiant leurs gènes de façon à ne plus aimer le sucre. En effet, dans le milieu des années 1980, le glucose servait à enrober les appâts empoisonnés utilisés pour les tuer.Les cafards, outre le dégoût qu’ils inspirent à de nombreuses personnes, sont également des envahisseurs vecteurs de maladies. A partir des années 1980, s’est ainsi mis en place une véritable lutte pour les exterminer. Pour cela, beaucoup utilisait du glucose, une forme de sucre, afin d’enrober des appâts empoisonnés vers lesquels les insectes étaient donc attirés. Mais au bout de quelques années, on s’est aperçu que le poison ne fonctionnait plus et les cafards ont repris leur multiplication de plus belle sans que l’on comprenne bien pourquoi.Aujourd’hui, le professeur d’entomologie à l’Université de Caroline du nord Jules Silverman a pourtant réussi à élucider le mystère. En réalité, les cafards ne sont pas devenus résistants aux insecticides, a t-il constaté. Non, ils ne sont tout simplement plus piégés par les appâts au glucose. En effet, le scientifique a découvert que les insectes n’étaient plus attirés par le sucre et plus étonnant encore, que cette aversion avait une cause génétique héréditaire transmise de générations en générations, selon l’étude publiée dans le revue Science.Comme le souligne Coby Schal, lui aussi professeur d’entomologie à l’Université de Caroline du Nord et co-auteur de ces travaux, la bataille entre les humains et les cafards portait jusque là sur la capacité des insectes à développer une résistance aux insecticides. Mais ils ont fait fort en allant jusqu’à modifier leur comportement et à apprendre à résister à certains types de nourriture, le sucre en l’occurrence, qu’ils appréciaient très fortement jusque là.Une remarquable adaptation… “La plupart du temps des mutations génétiques entraînent la perte d’une fonction biologique, or ici c’est l’opposé puisque ces cafards ont acquis une nouvelle fonction, à savoir déclencher des capteurs sensoriels gustatifs de l’amertume en présence de glucose”, explique M. Schal cité par l’AFP. Ils ont ainsi purement et simplement modifié leur système gustatif alors que le sucre représentait auparavant un de leurs péchés mignons. “Ceci donne aux cafards un nouveau comportement qui représente une adaptation incroyable aux pressions de l’environnement” pour survivre, souligne le chercheur. “Les cafards viennent de nous devancer dans la course aux armements” que nous leur livrons, et ce en sept ou huit ans, ironise-t-il encore. qui n’est pas sans conséquences À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Néanmoins, cette modification semble ne pas être sans conséquence pour les cafards. En effet, d’après les scientifiques, les cafards allergiques au sucre connaissent une croissance plus lente que la normale, tout au moins en laboratoire. Une observation qui soulève des questions chez les chercheurs. “Nous voulons savoir comment ce trait persiste dans la nature où la disponibilité de nourriture est probablement limitée”, indique le professeur Silverman toujours cité par l’AFP.”Les cafards doivent s’adapter à un environnement où l’accès à des sources d’alimentation est variable et incertain. L’aversion au glucose constitue une restriction alimentaire de plus pour pouvoir bien se nourrir”, relève-t-il. Pour pouvoir en savoir plus, les chercheurs comptent donc bien poursuivre leurs travaux et voir notamment si les cafards n’ont pas par exemple développé un goût pour un autre type d’aliment…Le 27 mai 2013 à 16:33 • Maxime Lambert
Twitter The B-52’s 40th Anniversary Tour includes a handful of festival dates in the U.S. and Europe, along with global headline dates.

A US-made bomb was used in a Saudi-led strike on Yemen’s capital last month that killed 16 civilians, including seven children, and orphaned a young girl, Amnesty International said Friday.The rights watchdog said its arms expert analysed remnants of the bomb recovered in Sanaa and that it “bore clear markings that matched US-made components commonly used in laser-guided air-dropped bombs”.“We can now conclusively say that the bomb that killed Buthaina’s parents and siblings, and other civilians, was made in the USA,” said Amnesty’s Middle East research director Lynn Maalouf.She was referring to five-year-old Buthaina Mansur who survived the attack but whose parents and five siblings were killed by the bomb. A picture of the little girl being rescued went viral.Seventeen people were also wounded in the August 25 air strike that levelled two apartment buildings in Sanaa’s southern neighbourhood of Faj Attan.The Saudi-led coalition entered Yemen’s war in 2015 in support of the government against Iran-backed Houthi rebels, who seized Sanaa the previous year and control it to this day in alliance with forces loyal to ex-President Ali Abdullah Saleh.Children, according to UNICEF, account for at least 1,712 of the more than 8,500 deaths in Yemen since the coalition intervened in Yemen.A day after the deadly air strike, the coalition admitted responsibility for the raid, describing it as a “technical mistake”.The coalition has been repeatedly accused of killing civilians during its air strikes on Yemen.In December 2016, the US administration under then president Barack Obama blocked the transfer of precision-guided bomb kits to Riyadh.A senior administration official said the move reflected “strong concerns with the flaws in the coalition’s targeting practices” and its overall conduct of the Yemen air war.US President Donald Trump has stepped up military support to Riyadh since taking over from Obama.The US and Saudi Arabia in May announced an arms deal worth almost $110 billion, described as the largest in US history.The head of the Norwegian Refugee Council on Friday urged a return to diplomacy for the sake of Yemeni civilians.“Privileged neighbours and regional powers bring fuel to the fire, while Yemeni civilians pay the price for the war,” NRC head Jan Egeland said on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York.
Stay on target ‘The Gifted’ S2 Finale Recap: Death, Destruction & Hope for Season 3’The Gifted’ Season 2, Ep 5 Recap: The Reunion We’ve Waited For The Gifted doesn’t have a midseason finale like a lot of other broadcast TV series do. Much like Fox’s other new genre addition The Orville, it was given a short first season. There are only three episodes left in the season, and it feels like it. The show goes on hiatus for the next two weeks, and then we’re in it for the last three episodes of the season. This episode was all about setting up for the big fight to come. As formulaic as The Gifted can get, it’s done a lot of work over the last two episodes to change itself up. It still hasn’t broken from its formula completely, but there is finally a sense that things are moving forward again. The end of the last two episodes each brought a pretty significant change. It feels like the world will be different when the show returns.New addition to the Mutant Underground Esme is the one who really drives the episode forward. It even opens with a flashback focusing on her, though it doesn’t reveal too much. She was working on the campaign of an anti-mutant politician who, after giving a speech, complained about the size of his crowd. I have to admit that’s much funnier than all the “Make *blank* *blank* Again” jokes we got last year. But before we can learn anything about what she’s doing there or what her larger plans are, she hears a warning. The politician gets a call from Sentinel Services, and she suddenly hears a voice warning her that they’re onto her. I like my shows to keep a little mystery, but I wish we’d found out a little more about her with this flashback. It was fun to wonder exactly whose side she was on this episode, but by the end of it, we still don’t know much about her end game. She wants to reunite with her sisters, but beyond that? I guess we’ll have to wait.Coby Bell, guest star Frances Turner, Amy Acker and Stephen Moyer (Cr: Eliza Morse/FOX)At the Mutant Underground, she’s causing all the trouble. As shady and duplicitous as she is, it turns out to be a good thing for the show. It puts an end to the latest version of the same argument we’ve seen play out on this show from the very beginning. There’s nothing wrong with building the series around a central conflict, but The Gifted needs to find a more interesting way to do that than having the characters whisper intensely at each other. This time, the whispering centers around what to do now that Trask has the Strucker kids, Dreamer and Blink. One small evolution of the argument I do appreciate is that everyone seems to recognize that the Struckers aren’t separate anymore. They even come out and say they’re all “our people” now. Of course even with that, the age-old X-Men conflict is still being argued. Do we go in mutant powers blazing, possibly killing people, or do we look for a more diplomatic solution? Esme puts an end to it by going behind everyone’s back and doing both. She encourages the Struckers to go talk to Agent Turner without telling Eclipse and Polaris. She then tells Eclipse and Polaris that the Struckers just went off to talk to Agent Turner on their own.We spend most of the episode wondering exactly what kind of game she’s playing. Is she a Sentinel sleeper agent? Is she some sort of mutant purist, trying to drive a wedge between mutants and non-mutants? It’s actually pretty fun trying to figure out where she’s going as she manipulates everyone on the show. The Struckers have a long, tense conversation about family and children with Turner and his wife. Amy Acker does look seriously threatening as a worried mother holding a gun. She’s always been the one arguing for nonviolence, but in this moment, when her kids are in danger and she’s staring at the man who put them there, you totally believe she’s capable of some violence. It never gets that far, and the conversation actually works. They don’t appeal to Turner’s better nature, but to his wife’s. Seeing what her husband’s work is doing to another person’s family, she demands to know what he’s been up to.Guest star Garret Dillahunt, Jamie Chung and guest star Elena Satine (Cr: Eliza Morse/FOX)The scenes of the Strucker kids being experimented on at Trask Industries is nice and tense too. The frighteningly scarred Dr. Campbell locks them in a test chamber and tries to force them to display their Fenris abilities. He also lines the walls with adamantium spikes, which he specifically calls out as being found in Canada. That’s probably just there to wink at dedicated fans, reminding us that Wolverine exists. But hey, wouldn’t it be cool if he showed up in some capacity on this show? The kids refuse at first, enduring Campbell’s shocks. Then, he brings Dreamer and Blink into the room. He forces the kids to use their powers by killing Dreamer, which is a genuine shock. There was never a guarantee of safety for any of the characters, but Dreamer is one that we knew decently well. She was never anyone’s favorite character on the show, but it’s still sad to see her go. To save Blink, the Strucker kids join hands and tear apart the building, something Campbell says should have been impossible. As fun as it was to see the shock on his face as the wall comes down, Lauren realizes that they gave him exactly what he wanted. We don’t know what he intends to do with that data, but it’s clear they helped out an evil person.The episode ends with another big shock as Esme’s plans are revealed. Esme is a combination of two mutants from the X-Men comics: Emma Frost and her artificially created daughters, the Cuckoo Quintuplets. Only here, they’re just triplets. In addition to hearing people’s thoughts, she can force them to do whatever she wants. After the Struckers convince Turner to remove the prisoners from Trask and bring them back to prison, she gets the rest of the Mutant underground to launch a rescue operation. Then, just as Eclipse is about to enact his elaborate plan, she tasers him and takes matters into her own hands. So… what was the point of bringing the rest of the Mutant Underground if she was just going to act alone anyway? That’s never explained, and it makes most of her manipulations this episode seem pointless. All she needed to do was convince the Struckers to talk to Turner. Why tell Eclipse about it and pretend they went off on their own? The only reason seems to be so the Underground can figure out that she’s up to something just a moment too late. Her actions only serve to set up a twist, as far as I can tell. It’s annoying, but at least it leads to a cool, villainous display of powers. She uses her powers to force the security guard to deactivate all the mutants collars. Then, she has all the guards turn their weapons on each other and themselves. It’s an effectively shot, legitimately scary scene. I’d like to see The Gifted go even further in this direction.Percy Hynes White and Natalie Alyn Lind (Cr: Eliza Morse/FOX)Though it was held back by the same problems that have plagued The Gifted since episode one, it got out of them much quicker than normal. It helped that we got to watch a real mutant antagonist emerge. She complicates the story nicely, and I’m looking forward to see where the show takes her. There’s also the sense that there is no going back to normal after this episode. All the mutants are out of custody, but Dreamer is gone. That’s going probably going to push Thunderbird far more towards Polaris’s destructive arguments. Also, Turner is going to be even more of a threat now. He gave the Struckers the benefit of the doubt and had to watch his entire squad shoot themselves. They had nothing to do with that, but he doesn’t know that. Nor is he going to listen. So now the Underground will have to deal with an even more aggressive Sentinel Services as well as homicidal triplets. That’s an exciting place to be when the show comes back in 2018.

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Register Now » Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global 3 min read October 1, 2014 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. As iOS 8 continues to extend out into the mainstream, app developers around the world are cranking out their updates to make the best use of the operating system. For entrepreneurs, that promises increased productivity, time saved and maybe even better bottom lines. Here are five apps recently released for iOS 8 that should be on every entrepreneur’s iPhone or iPad.Related: 5 Habits of Productivity App Super Users1. Evernote. This go-to note-taking app that helps you remember everything is already a must for every entrepreneur. For iOS 8, Evernote does all it has done in the past, but also takes advantage of the Notification Center where you can create different kinds of notes. Plus, there’s an extension in Safari that allows you to save as a note whatever you’re browsing.2. Kashoo. If you’re at the helm of your business’ accounting, the new Kashoo app will make one of the least sexy aspects of running a business perhaps a little less unsexy. For iOS 8, Action Extension let’s you pull stuff, such as an image of a receipt, into Kashoo in the same way that you would email, text, print or AirDrop it. That means no more jumping back and forth between Camera/Photos and Kashoo.3. OmniFocus 2. Task management is the bane of the entrepreneurial existence. (OK, it’s one of the banes.) OmniFocus 2 aims to make your day-to-day easier. Specifically related to iOS 8, you can now get a quick grip on your to-dos right in the Today section of the the Notification Center. Yes, it’s a $20 app, but if that’s what it costs to GTD (get things done), that’s a deal.Related: With iOS 8 Update, Apple Will No Longer Provide User Data to Police4. Flipboard. Flipboard is a great way to pull in all your various news and social feeds and its fresh-for-iOS 8 release gives users even more flexibility. Similar to Evernote’s new feature, you can push whatever you’re looking at (i.e., a webpage, photos, etc.) to Flipboard just by hitting the Share icon and selecting Flipboard.5. LinkedIn. My unscientific guess is that most entrepreneurs use LinkedIn more than Facebook and Twitter combined. Want to check who’s viewed your profile? No need to open up the LinkedIn app. You can see it in the Notification Center. Link sharing is much more convenient now, too. Plus, you can accept connection requests from your phone’s lock screen the same way you’d respond to an iMessage or text message.Interestingly, many apps coming out with their iOS8-ready releases are focusing on minimizing the number of times you need to actually open the app. It’s all about saving time for users by executing tasks from the Notification Center or an Extension. That’s a good thing for busy entrepreneurs.Related: A Quick Guide to Apple’s iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite

The donated services give physicians and imaging technicians at Tenwek Hospital the ability to upload patient radiology exams for transmission to U.S.-based radiologists. The exams are then read and returned to doctors at Tenwek with the accurate diagnosis needed to help treat and care for patients facing what are often complex, urgent health issues.Visiting radiologist Stanley Cheng, M.D., who was charged with finding an affordable teleradiology solution for the hospital, introduced StatRad to Tenwek in 2014. One of the largest mission hospitals in Africa, Tenwek treats more than 140,000 outpatients each year and admits another 13,000 inpatients. Although StatRad offers a free version of RadConnect, Claude Hooton, StatRad’s president and chief operating officer, said it was clear the hospital needed the company’s full-service enterprise solution to meet its image exchange demands for X-ray, ultrasound and advanced computed tomography (CT) images.To support Tenwek’s mission, StatRad donated a pro-bono enterprise license and went live in May 2015. Tenwek clinicians can upload patient exams into the cloud (StatRad servers) so radiologists based in the United States can immediately view and read the exams. The U.S. radiologist then generates his or her report, uploads it to RadConnect for physicians in Africa, and a treatment plan is quickly put in place.“The impact this makes on the doctors, staff and patients of Tenwek Hospital is incredible,” said Read Vaughan, M.D., one of a team of 37 stateside radiologists who volunteers his time at Tenwek as a visiting physician. “The image-sharing technology combined with U.S.-based radiology expertise changes everything.

Source = e-Travel Blackboard: N.J The low-cost carrier’s chief executive, Tony Fernandes said AirAsia continues to defy industry trends after recording a four percent growth in net operating profit during the first quarter this year compared to the same period last year.In the airline’s quarter profit update, Mr Fernandes described the carrier’s growth as “remarkable” compared to its peers’ performances and cited the growth to its “resilient business model” and “cyclical airline business”.During the record breaking quarter, AirAsia saw its revenue jump 11 percent to up to RM1.17 billion from RM1.05 billion during the same quarter last year and its passenger count increase 12 percent.Looking ahead, Mr Fernandes said business looked “positive” and expects the second quarter to continue producing high load factors.“We are monitoring fuel prices very closely and the moment we perceive an opportunity, we will not hesitate to add to our hedges based on our forward bookings,” he explained. “At the same time, we shall remain focus on containing or driving down controllable costs and maintaining our competitive edge.” Despite business growth, earlier this week AirAsia announced it would axe its seven times weekly services between Kuala Lumpur and Solo, Indonesia.

There have been “remarkable changes” in the public’s perception of recycling, Agriculture Minister Nicos Kouyialis said on Thursday.Speaking at the final conference of the ‘Rethink – Reduce – Reuse – Recycle’ campaign, Kouyialis said the government was promoting three programmes aimed at the reduction, reuse and recycling of waste, one of which is the reduction of waste at beaches, another is ‘I pay for what I throw’ in the Nicosia district and the third concerns the management of waste in the mountain areas.The ‘Rethink – Reduce – Reuse – Recycle’ campaign had a duration of 38 months and a budget of €2.1 million, some €925,000 of which was covered by the European Union.“There have been remarkable changes in the perception and awareness of the public and the stakeholders,” Kouyialis said, noting that Cyprus faces huge challenges and problems over its obligations to the EU in terms of per capita production of municipal waste.According to the results of the most recent polls in 2017 for the project, which was presented by the CYMAR Market Research Ltd executive Christos Marangos, as a result of the campaign, awareness was raised over the reduction and the reuse of materials which would be considered as waste.In previous qualitative research for the project in 2015 and 2016 participants seemed to be completely ignorant of the term reduce in relation to waste management and there was no correlation made with the consumption attitudes followed.In the latest research in 2017, the term seems to be more widely known while the knowledge regarding the term seems to be derived from the campaign (TV awareness spots) which participants recall having watched.On the basis of the research conducted about six in ten Cypriots (55 per cent) know about the Rethink campaign.It was also noted that in 2017 the campaign was rated positively by the large majority of participants (94 per cent) while 100 per cent of those asked believe it should be continued.In 2014 recycling participation was 46 per cent, 49 per cent in 2015 and 51 per cent in 2016.A €15 million seaside project currently involves municipalities from Paralimni to Larnaca and is geared towards the reduction of waste from coastal hotels.According to the minister, soon there will be similar projects from Limassol to Polis Chrysochous.The programme ‘I pay as much as I throw’ will be implemented in the Nicosia district, while the project in the Troodos area has the aim of reducing waste production or at least the elimination of waste management.At the conference, Green Party MP Charalambos Theopemtou expressed the hope that legislation on recycling would soon be promoted. He added the environment sector can provide many jobs to unemployed scientists.On her part, Environment Commissioner Ioanna Panayiotou said there were gaps in informing the world about waste management and referred to the importance of research carried out within the framework of the programme.Other speakers were Volunteer Commissioner Yiannis Yiannakis, the Chairman of CyBC Thanassis Tsokkos and head of Green Dot, Mike Spanos.Spanos said Cyprus was a champion in legislating but of not complying with the laws and suggested there be mandatory sorting at the source ie households.‘Rethink’ was carried with Green Dot Cyprus, Fost Plus of Belgium, the Cyprus News Agency, the paedagogical institute of the ministry of education and culture, and the environment department of the ministry of agriculture, natural resources and environment.It was based on Eurostat statistics on the large amounts of waste produced for 2012, which came up with 663 kilogrammes per resident per year in Cyprus.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
