Fire erupts after lightning strikes HJ studio

first_imgA major catastrophe was averted on Thursday after lightning struck the Hits and Jams Studio, causing a fire to erupt in the transmission room.The incident occurred sometime around 10:35h at the Lance Gibbs Street, Queenstown, office of HJTV and 94 Boom FM.Staff members of Hits and Jams studio outside the building following the Thursday morning fireAccording to reports reaching Guyana Times, during the heavy downpour on Thursday morning, lightening struck the company’s signal tower causing a spark inside the building.However, staff members were quick to take action, turning off the main power and containing the small blaze in the transmission room while the fire service was on its way.Speaking briefly with reporters, Director of Hits and Jams Kerwin Bollers explained that when the lightning struck the tower, it sent a surge of electricity to the systems in the television station’s transmission room. This resulted in the equipment being overpowered, as such, a fire broke out.At the time, Bollers said it was too early to assess the extent of the damages incurred.“Hopefully there is not much damage… we’re trying to assess it and determine, pretty much, what are damaged and what can be repaired… we have some technicians coming over to check the equipment out,” he told reporters at the scene on Thursday.At the time when the fire broke out, there were about a dozen persons in the building, including popular radio broadcaster Feliz Robertson who was on air at the time. She recalled that they heard a loud explosion before her DJ noticed smoke in the building.“When that (explosion) happened, I was stunned and so my DJ pulled down the mics so that no one can hear us scream or panic, and we started to unplug whatever we can,” she told this newspaper. Robertson went on to say that they then started to douse the fire which was at the time on the ceiling of the transmission room. She noted that they managed to contain the blaze with a fire extinguisher. The broadcaster continued that they then gathered everyone out of the building and managed to take with them small pieces of equipment. She noted that shortly after a call was made to the fire service and fire tenders arrived on scene and took charge of the situation.last_img read more

C-K council declares climate emergency

first_imgBelieving there’s a need to take the next step to mitigate the impacts of flooding and erosion, Chatham-Kent councillors unanimously approved a climate emergency motion Monday night.South Kent Coun. Trevor Thompson entered the motion, which follows up on similar declarations made by other jurisdictions across Canada.The aim of the motion is to provide a lens through which strategies and policies can be viewed, so staff can work quickly to identify target areas to reduce individual and collective environmental impacts.Thompson called it important to send a message that action is needed, adding he found the recent shoreline study public meetings in Erieau to be an eye-opening experience.“It was no longer about ‘Save my house.’ I heard that a lot prior to the meetings,” he said. “It became ‘Save our community. Save our tax base. Save our tax dollars. Save my business. Save our tourism. Address our infrastructure issues.’”Staff will also work internally and engage with stakeholders and the community to prepare recommendations for cost-effective initiatives to address the issue ahead of next year’s budget deliberations.“How do we build better? How do we plan better? How do we become more resilient in our communities?” Thompson said.High water levels have been seen in recent years on Lake Erie and Lake St. Clair, with erosion impacting properties and resulting in local road closures.Other cities that have declared a climate emergency include Ottawa, Hamilton, London and, most recently, Sarnia.The motion passed 17-0 to the applause of the crowd in council chambers.Earlier in the evening, there was a presentation by consultant Peter Zuzek, who is involved in the ongoing shoreline study, as well as community supporters of the climate emergency motion.West Kent Coun. Melissa Harrigan called the motion an opportunity for councillors to become further educated on the subject.She said everyone is impacted by climate change and stressed that any solutions wouldn’t be a short-term fix.“It’s about the long-term sustainability of this community,” she said.East Kent Coun. Steve Pinsonneault agreed the municipality needs to move forward.“I think we need to start somewhere,” he said, “and this is as good a spot as any.”North Kent Coun. Joe Faas also called it crucial to highlight the impact of the provincial government’s cuts to conservation authorities.“We need to get our provincial counterparts on board here,” he [email protected] read more

Pensions won’t be nationalised: Manuel

first_img30 June 2008South Africa’s workforce need not cash in their provident fund savings out of fear that the government will nationalise the funds, says Finance Minister Trevor Manuel.Manuel’s statement comes after certain service providers warned their clients to cash in their savings, claiming that the government was threatening to seize them.“Since the announcement of the reform of retirement funds in the national budget in February, service providers have told people that government is going to nationalise pensions and is going to take away your savings, so you will only get the statutory state old age pension when you retire,” Manuel told reporters in Pretoria last week.“It would be reckless, impossible and unconstitutional that any one of us would agree with the confiscation of the savings of working people.”Manuel said he had heard that workers were withdrawing their savings, and that some were going so far as to resign from their jobs in order to cash in their pensions.He was accompanied by Social Development Minister Zola Skweyiya and several trade union leaders.Savings levels ‘too low’Skweyiya said he was concerned that these withdrawals would impact on the workers themselves and their families as they approach retirement, and that it would impact on the country, as savings levels are already too low.“The government and trade unions share a commitment to improve the living standards of our people and we want to collaborate in working towards this objective,” he said.“Part of this commitment is to ensure that all workers are able to live a better life when they retire than live in dire poverty in old age.”Report ‘unscrupulous individuals’Skweyiya called on all shop stewards and trustees of pension and provident funds to report these “unscrupulous individuals and service providers” to trade union offices, government and regulatory agencies.He said that some government departments and the trade unions would embark on road shows to visit factory floors around the country, and ensure that shop stewards and workers were prevented by being misled.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Like a Robot Struck by Lightning: Gowalla to Launch Write API, Possibly With Pictures

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market marshall kirkpatrick Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Location#web Imagine you were a robot who only knew how to describe the world in four ways: self, other, time, and object. Now imagine you were struck by a bolt of lightning and found your robot brain aware of a whole new column in the spreadsheet…Place. You’d feel like a whole new robot and you’d probably sing a very happy robot song.That’s what the social web is going through right now, with the rise of location data and services as a viable pivot point for developers to work their magic with. Next week 2nd place check-in app Gowalla says it will launch at least the beginning of something a small but fascinating group of robot magicians has long waited for: a write-capable API.What Kind of Apps Might We See?Imagine a mobile app that let you check-in at all the famous art museums of the world, post photos of yourself outside them and see which museums your friends have been to. Or the best places in the world to eat grilled cheese sandwiches, if that’s your thing.Niche topical apps like that could become easier than ever to create and tie-together with larger more established location based social network providers with the availability of multiple write APIs. You could have your cheese sandwich check-ins show up in your Gowalla and Foursquare social networks, if you want, or you could view and use an app built on top of those APIs that only published and displayed check-ins at cheese sandwich related places. It’s really all about cheese sandwiches.Leading check-in app Foursquare has an API, or Application Programming Interface, that developers can already build software on top of that reads Foursquare data and can publish check-ins to Foursquare as well. But competitor Gowalla has had a read-only API, meaning 3rd party apps could display user location data but couldn’t publish back to Gowalla.Gowalla developer Adam Keys told the company’s developer email list today that unlike previous promises a write-API was coming “next week,” this time he means it. “The good news is that I think I’ve got the foundation in place,” he wrote. “I’m hoping to write up the docs and get *something* out next week, even if it’s not complete API access.”The Gowalla apps include one thing that Foursquare does not – the ability to upload photos of places along with your check-in. Might that be a part of the new Gowalla API? We certainly hope so.What Does This Mean?It means there’s more than one game in town. There’s a very big difference between one hot check-in app you can publish to and two. As ReadWriteWeb’s resident hacker and geofreak Tyler Gillies told me this afternoon, “I think this will really change the game as far as people’s ability to create applicatons that allow you to check into a venue on multiple services.”The value of a multi-platform check-in app is that you don’t have to choose, you can participate in and see your friends’ activity across services you yourself don’t spend a lot of time on.At the same time, it means you get to choose. If everyone in the world was on AT&T and they couldn’t call out to Verizon, you’d never leave one service because it would mean you’d lose contact with your friends. Enter interoperability and you’ve got customer choice, vendor competition and a new wave of innovation.At least that could be how it turns out with regard to the addition of interoperable Place streams across multiple vendors.Foursquare today lets a user opt-in to have news and reviews from favorite organizations like the Huffington Post, the Wall St. Journal and the Independent Film Channel pushed automatically to their phones when they check-in near a place that those organizations have annotated. That’s hot and it’s just the beginning of the kind of features these kinds of location apps will be able to offer in the future. Like a robot that’s been struck by lightning.A service provider or developer can offer software users a lot if they know what the user likes, who the user is friends with and how recent all that data is. Add knowing where people, places and things are and you’ve got a big jump in potential recombination of factors. Not just for location apps themselves either, but in all kinds of apps that use the location data such apps make it easy and compelling to publish.Maybe even with pictures.last_img read more
