first_imgBotswana introduces fees for handling ozone depleting substances Map of Zimbabwe Zimbabwe is stepping up efforts to combat illegal trade in ozone-depleting substances (ODSs), a senior environment official said Wednesday.Zimbabwe had not been spared from the smuggling schemes to move banned ODSs and contaminated refrigerants across the borders, said Zimbabwean Environment Minister Mangaliso Ndlovu.“My Ministry is working with the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority to train Customs Officers and equip them with tools and skills to combat illegal trade in ozone depleting substances,” said Ndlovu.“A total of 16 refrigerant identifiers were distributed to all major ports of entry to help in the detection of mislabeled or contaminated refrigerants,” the minister said in a speech to mark this year’s International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer.“Since January 2010, over 350 cylinders of contaminated and mislabeled refrigerants have been seized at our ports of entry,” he said.The day was designated by the United Nations General Assembly in 1994 for all nations of the world to reflect and take action against the depletion of the stratospheric ozone layer.Zimbabwe is a signatory to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer which was signed on Sept. 16, 1987.The theme for this year’s Ozone Day commemorations is “Ozone for life: 35 years of ozone layer protection”.Ndlovu said Zimbabwe had managed to completely phase out the consumption of ozone depleting substance chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) from a baseline level of 450 metric tons and has now reduced Hydro-Chlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) consumption by 35 percent from a baseline level of 340 metric tons.“These reductions at national level have contributed to the global efforts to preserve the ozone layer and the global climate system,” the minister said.Related Kenya pledges to phase out ozone depleting substancescenter_img Trade between Zimbabwe and South Africa declininglast_img read more

first_imgLocalNews ODM hosts workshop to develop CAP pilot project by: – June 10, 2014 60 Views   no discussions Share Sharing is caring! Tweetcenter_img Share Members of the Dominica Police Force, Fire and Ambulance Services, the Dominica Red Cross and other interest groups are participating in the two day workshopThe Office of Disaster Management (ODM) is hosting a two day national workshop on a Community Alert Project (CAP) for the town of Portsmouth.The workshop which commenced on Tuesday, June 10, 2014, will deal with an early warning system using the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) platform.CAP is a system in which several mediums (e.g. sirens) are used to alert the public of danger or disaster other that radio.The workshop will also focus on early warning systems, warning system usage policy, broadcaster agreement and communications strategy among others.Several CAP specialists from the various Caribbean islands will present overviews on the early warning system (EWS) and their assessments on the models that were done in the other islands at the workshop.Members of the Dominica Police Force, Fire and Ambulance Services, the Dominica Red Cross and other interest groups are participating in the two day workshop.“Today, what we are dealing with is looking at models that have been implemented in the region,” Steve Joseph, acting program officer at the Office of Disaster Management told Dominica Vibes.He said Dominica stands to benefit from the project funded by the European Union (EU) under the United Nations Development Program with the target community being Portsmouth.“We have an expert from Anguilla with us in Dominica who is working with the project to get us well acquainted with what the project intends to achieve and to help define the preferred early warning system to be used under the project,” Joseph said.Mr Joseph added that once the server is installed there will be a test and a regime of public education that has to go with the system. He noted that although nothing has been installed yet in Portsmouth, awareness of the project has already begun and that the ODM has been working with the town council there.He also mentioned that Portsmouth was chosen because the project puts greater emphasis on coastal hazards like tsunamis and tidal waves and because Portsmouth is in a low lying area, it’s a better location to test.Dominica Vibes News Sharelast_img read more

Three Ravens made the 2020 All-Under-25 Team

By on August 16, 2020

first_img“Andrews tore off the doors last season with 16catches for 220 yards and two scores during Baltimore’s raucous 2-0 start tothe year. His 64/852/10 line topped Ravens skill players across the board, asAndrews served as Lamar Jackson’s favorite weapon when Baltimore’s backfieldwasn’t blasting front sevens into the dirt. From another angle: Andrews wasexplosive enough to allow the Ravens to trade away first-round tight end HaydenHurst.” CB Marlon Humphrey: Jackson will be a virtual lock at the quarterback spot next year since he doesn’t turn 25 until January 7th, 2022. Another player to keep an eye on is second-year receiver Marquise ‘Hollywood’ Brown who is poised for a breakout sophomore season now that he is fully healthy and will be able to showcase the full extent of his game-breaking speed and play-making ability after being a little hampered by injuries in his rookie year.Please follow and like us: It’s nice to see that Andrews wasn’t left off thislist like he was by Sessler’s NFL.com colleague and renowned draft analystBucky Brooks when he comprised a list of the top five tight ends in the leagueand left the 2019 breakout star off of it. Andrews’ stellar play last seasonmade Hurst an expendable asset that they turned into the pick they used toselect Ohio State running back JK Dobbins in the second round who they had alate first-round grade on. Last week NFL.com’s Marc Sessler released a roster he created comprised of players under the age of 25 heading into the 2020 season. Only players that are still going to be under 25 by the time the season officially kicks off on September 10th were eligible for the list. Three Baltimore Ravens made the cut and one surprising yet understandable snub was left off. TE Mark Andrews: The Ravens have surrounded their electrifyingfranchise quarterback with some young promising talent at the skill positionsin recent years and loaded up with young talent on defense as well so don’t besurprised if the number of Ravens on the list doubles next year. The first-round pick out of Alabama in 2017 got hisfirst Pro Bowl nod and was voted first-team All-Pro in his breakout season. Hewas by far the most consistent and dominant player on the defense last seasonand the other half of arguably the best cornerback tandem in the league withMarcus Peters who also made the first team All-Pro list in 2019 after beingtraded to the Ravens. OT Orlando Brown Jr: Zues Jr, Baby Zeus, (not so) Lil Zeus, or whatever nickname he might go by, has honored his late father’s memory with his play on the field and with the way he carries himself off of it (in 2019 he was the media “Good Guy” Award recipient). He’s been rock solid on the right side of the Ravens’ offensive line since he seized the starting role as a rookie and is part of arguably the best bookend tackle duo in the league with first-team All-Pro Ronnie Stanley manning the blindside. Brown also made the Pro Bowl last year as a first alternate. “Speaking of last year’s Ravens, Brown started 16games on the right side for Baltimore and finished as football’s 10th-bestpass-blocking tackle, per PFF. His run-blocking could use a boost, but theRavens have no questions about whether Brown belongs.” The most shocking name left off the list is reigningleague MVP Lamar Jackson but that’s because Patrick Mahomes, the reigningSuperbowl MVP, just made the age cut off since he doesn’t turn 25 until exactlya week after he and the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs face off with theHouston Texans in the season opener. “Today’s NFL is stocked with difference-making cornersas teams regularly roll out a fifth and sixth defensive back to counterexploding air attacks. Denzel Ward, Jaire Alexander, and Adoree’ Jackson arecandidates for this list, but I’m sticking with Humphrey. Packed into a deepRavens secondary, the 2017 first-rounder has logged 47 forced incompletions —fourth league-wide — over his first three seasons.”last_img read more
