Brock chemist startup company unveil new technology for mining sector

Ian Brindle presents ColdBlock™ Laboratory Sample Digestion Technology to an audience at the recent Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada conference.The Canadian start-up company ColdBlockTM Technologies Inc. and its research partner, Brock University chemist Ian Brindle, unveiled their pioneering technology at the recent Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada conference. This marks the first step in the company’s global launch of its ColdBlockTM Laboratory Sample Digestion Technology, which has the potential to revolutionize the mining industry by offering a cheaper, faster and cleaner way to conduct mineral and ore analysis.“ColdBlock Digestion offers mining operations a new alternative to achieve productivity gains,” Brindle says.The analysis process, called digestion, involves dissolving samples in order to measure the amounts of economically valuable metals within them. Current conventional methods can take up to four hours or more to digest samples with toxic acids and acids that form explosive compounds.But in its digestion method, the ColdBlockTM technology instead uses infrared emitters to generate very high heat, which is absorbed by the sample particles directly, with impressive results.“Digestions take less than 15 minutes and results are comparable with those from other, usually slower, digestion technologies,” Brindle explains. “Coupled with the elimination of perchloric acid, and the overall reduction in the volume of acids needed, makes ColdBlockTM a greener and safer technology.”“Today’s release of ColdBlock Digestion marks the first step in our company’s global launch,” Nick Kuryluk, CEO of ColdBlockTM Technologies, said at the March 4 launch. “We aspire to become a leading sample digestion technology for the mining industry and look to expand into the environmental and other industries in the near future.”For more information, see ColdBlockTM Technologies Inc.’s website. read more

Field test Nikon D4 with sample shots

first_imgNikon’s new pro-level D4 is out in the wild and I was able to get my hands on one for a short shooting session. The D4 was paired with the company’s 24-70mm f/2.8, making for a very nice rig, especially when combined with a beautiful spring day here in NYC. The two components came together to become a $7800, 4.8-pound shoulder-destroying, pedestrian-frightening super camera, but they sure were fun to use.My time with the D4 was limited, so I’ll keep my thoughts brief for now. After all this is camera built for just a select group of demanding professionals.First of all, the D4 is quite conspicuous, especially when paired with the lengthy 24-70mm lens and a hood. If people didn’t notice the huge camera setup, you’re sure to get their attention when you start shooting at 10 frames per second in their general direction.With some tinkering I was able to find the camera’s shutter-free Silent Mode, which takes 1920×1080 shots in high speeds bursts. This mode is great if you don’t want to interrupt a press conference or party and you still want top-notch image quality. The biggest problem here is that when you press the shutter button nothing really happens on the camera. Aside from a green light blinking, it’s not clear if you are even taking pictures! Furthermore, the image counter doesn’t increase, you just see a countdown timer, so the mode feels quite disconnected from the normal experience. After holding the trigger for a bit you might check your memory card and realize that you were taking 2MP shots at 24 fps… and you have a lot of images that need to be edited.To enable Silent Mode you need to go into the settings and change the Live View image mode from Quiet to Silent (yes, it’s confusing). The camera has to be in Live View to shoot in this mode.Handling and ergonomics with the camera are both quite good. Obviously the D4 is a monster and the 2-pound lens doesn’t help, but the controls are well-placed. If you’re a Nikon shooter you’ll free right at home, especially if you are coming from a high-end model. Non-Nikon regulars will hit some controls issues — for example it wasn’t clear to me how to switch from FX to DX modes, let alone CX — but this is an complicated product so it’s not shocking that there is a learning curve.I only took about 400 shots and lighting conditions were pretty much ideal, so I can’t say much about the image quality. I was happy with the shots I took and, while it’s not my favorite, the 24-70mm is known to be a great lens. You can check out a few images below and report back with your thoughts.Nikon’s D4 is quite good. Given its price and how fantastic the D3s is though, it should come as no surprise that the camera doesn’t disappoint. The complaints I logged yesterday were minor (and at times unavoidable): the D4 is hefty, the Silent Mode needs some sort of feedback (haptics maybe?), and I don’t have an XQD reader so I had to shoot on boring old CF.On the product level, my concern is that the D4 isn’t hugely different — to me — from the D3s. That sad, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the target buyer, and that the high-end video options (like unprocesssed 1080p out through HDMI) and an ethernet jack aren’t what I need in a DSLR. As for day-to-day shooting, the autofocus didn’t feel drastically upgraded to me and the still image capturing tools aren’t that different from those of its predecessor. Serious videographers will surely take the D4 over anything else Nikon offers today, but the rest of us will have to determine if it’s worth the extra money over a D3s or D800.Note: These are unedited 4928×3280 and 1920×1080 (Silent Mode) shots so they might take a while to download.Nikon D4 sample shot 004- Sal Cangeloso – / full resolutionNikon D4 sample shot 004- Sal Cangeloso – / full resolutionNikon D4 sample shot 003 – Sal Cangeloso – / full resolutionNikon D4 sample shot 002 – Sal Cangeloso – / full resolutionNikon D4 sample shot – Sal Cangeloso – / full resolutionNikon D4 field test – Sal Cangeloso / – Silent mode 002Nikon D4 field test – Sal Cangeloso / – Silent modeNikon D4last_img read more

UK Museum Finds Cute Bat in Its Rare Book Store Names It

first_imgStay on target The Museum of English Rural Life (MERL) recently found a live bat in its archive, and the internet can’t get enough of the adorable critter named “Merlin.”In November, the bat was discovered hanging out by the ceiling of the MERL’s rare book store. The staff called Rose-Ann Movsovic, a retired librarian and MERL volunteer, who is also a licensed bat worker. Movsovic took Merlin “under her wing” and on Feb. 24, the MERL posted an update on the rescue operation and the bat’s— The Museum of English Rural Life (@TheMERL) February 24, 2019When Merlin was found at the museum last fall, a quick inspection was conducted to determine his species. It turned out that Merlin wasn’t actually from the area: According to the MERL, Merlin appeared to be a Nathusius’ pipistrelle bat, and these species typically hail from the Baltic states. Additionally, Merlin’s genital area was also a key indicator of the Nathusius’ pipistrelle species: It was shaped like “an albino hedgehog,” the MERL wrote in a tweet.First things first is to check the gonads, which confirmed the bat is a boy.Male bat genitalia look like, and we quote, ‘an albino hedgehog’.#NSFW— The Museum of English Rural Life (@TheMERL) February 24, 2019Merlin’s wing venation and ratio of forearm to 5th finger were also observed. The bat’s wings appeared to be in good condition, considering that he was stuck inside the archive for at least a day.We thought the bat was a type of pipistrelle, and after examining the ratio of forearm to 5th finger, and wing venation, it turns out to be a Nathusius’ pipistrelle.— The Museum of English Rural Life (@TheMERL) February 24, 2019Currently, Merlin is still under the care of Movsovic and he will eventually help scientists study the migratory behavior of his species. Under a project license, Merlin was provided a tagging ring, so he can give scientists more information on his movements in the future.Merlin will need a little more time to recover though: The MERL said the bat will have to get used to self-feeding, gain some weight, and engage in more flying practice before he’s released.Visit the MERL’s Twitter page for more updates on Merlin, including photos and facts on his species.More on Awesome Places to See Bats by the MillionsWatch: Dead Humpback Whale Found in Brazilian JungleBizarre Fish With Human-Like Teeth Baffles Farmers in Argentina Watch: Dolphin Leaps Feet Away From Unsuspecting SurferWatch: Deep-Sea Octopus ‘Billows Like a Circus Tent’ last_img read more

€500000 Project for teaching of French in Gambia

first_imgFrance to finance a project amounting to 500,000 euros towards supporting the teaching of French in the Gambia.This amount was announced during a meeting between Dr. Mamadou Tangara Minister of Foreign Affairs with his French Counterpart Jean -Baptiste Lemoyne,   Secretary of State for the Minister of Europe and Foreign Affairs, on April 3rd 2019 in Paris with a view to strengthening bilateral cooperation between our two countries.  This exchange was the opportunity to announce a project to support the teaching of French in The Gambia, which materialised the commitment of The Gambia to the French-speaking area. The Gambia has been a member since 2018 of the International Organisation of La Francophonie (OIF), according to a press statement from the Communication Unit Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Gambia.Since the Donor Conference in May 2018, France has been Gambia’s largest bilateral donor, with an aid of 50 million euros for the period 2018-2021, the statement disclosed.

Popular website ranks Publix subs the best sandwiches in the US

first_img(WSVN) – A popular website has now confirmed what most Floridians already knew: Publix subs really are the best sandwiches in the country.Thrillist lauded the supermarket’s subs with an article entitled “The Country’s Best Sandwiches Are Made By This Florida Grocery Chain.”The site said that the store’s subs are one of the few things that everyone can agree upon in Florida. They credit Publix’s fresh ingredients, saying that rather than a menu full of fancy offerings, the supermarket’s sandwiches are “high-quality and reliable.”Of course, any mention of the beloved “Pub Subs” wouldn’t be complete without highlighting the always-popular chicken tender sub, a unique option that Thrillist says sets Publix apart from chains like Subway.But it’s the obsession Floridians have that truly puts Publix’s subs ahead of all the rest, inspiring everything from viral Buzzfeed posts to even songs dedicated to the Pub Sub. Loyal customers have even created multiple Facebook fan pages for their favorite sandwiches, while one website states its mission rather bluntly: read more about why Thrillist chose Publix subs as the best in the country, click here.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Juneau School District uses data to keep kids from being left behind

first_imgBridget Weiss is director of student services for the district. She wants to do a better job identifying all the students who need an extra hand meeting the district’s core curriculum standards.Harborview Elementary School Monday, May 11, 2015 (Photo by Jeremy Hsieh, KTOO – Juneau)It’s well-known not all children learn in the same way or at the same pace, but it’s not always easy to realize which kids need extra attention. Weiss is excited about a method that tracks kids’ academic progress and shows the district which ones need an intervention. The method is called RTI. She said it stands for Response to Instruction.“In some places, it’s often referred to as Response to Intervention. It is a program based on the philosophy of identifying students’ needs early and attacking those with special interventions outside of the regular core curriculum,” Weiss said.She said the strategy is being used in other schools around the country. The Juneau School District has used parts of it in a few schools in the past, but now it’s trying to use the strategy district-wide. Weiss said elementary schools used Response to Instruction last year to improve reading skills.“Some schools are saying, ‘Hey, we really want to spend another year just focusing on reading, because we’re close, we’re not quite there, we really want to get expert at this whole RTI process with reading.’ Some schools are saying, ‘We’re chomping at the bit. We really want to get after math,’” Weiss said.Student behavior is also on some schools’ RTI to-do lists.This strategy has a lot of moving parts, but Weiss gave a brief explanation on how it works:She said it lumps students into tiers according to their performance. Tier 1 is the district’s core instruction that every kid in every classroom is getting. At this level, educators are evaluating how effectively they’re reaching every student in the district.Tier 2 is for kids who have a “higher level of need.”“Which would mean they get some additional time in a small group, adding some instructional methods to what they’re getting in the regular classroom,” Weiss said.She said if a student is “significantly behind,” they’re moved into the Tier 3 category.“Which just means more time. So we increase the amount of time and focus that they’re getting and some of the strategies that we use,” Weiss said.She said one of the most powerful parts of RTI come into play after kids are placed in a tier. They’re monitored for improvement. If a student in Tier 2 is getting additional small group instruction and it’s working, educators might keep giving that student more of the same.“Or is it not working and they need more time, or do they need a different intervention altogether,” Weiss asked.Finally, if students just aren’t showing enough improvement after multiple assessments and interventions, the district will consider the possibility that they’re dealing with a learning disability and move them towards special education.Weiss said, “There’s a continuum of work happening here from looking at all kids who might need some assistance, and then narrowing and applying effective practice, as well as identifying students who might need even more than what RTI can do for them.”She said because RTI is not just relying on teachers’ thoughts and feelings about their students’ abilities, there’s a better chance of catching kids who might otherwise fall through the cracks. It’s a systematic review of students’ performances over time.Weiss believes RTI can help identify kids’ individual challenges so they can solve them early in their educational careers.Each student’s data is also unique to them, not to the school. So when students change schools, their data travels with them.last_img read more

Speedrunner Beats Resident Evil 7 on Hardest Difficulty With Only a Knife

first_imgStay on target Resident Evil 7 Coming to Switch Thanks to the Power of the CloudGame of the Year: Jordan Minor’s Actual Games of the Year (2017) As you would expect, some speedrunners have already blasted their way through Resident Evil 7. Most have completed the game on easy mode using special weapons. This wasn’t good enough for one speedrunner who decided to make things more challenging for themselves. Not only did they turn the difficulty all the way up, but managed to plow through with only a knife.Resident Evil 7 has three difficulty modes: Easy, Normal, and Madhouse. Madhouse makes enemies more resilient to damage and makes your main character weaker. The locations of key items have been rearranged, and one can only save their progress with VHS tapes. The regular game is hard enough, but Madhouse is downright brutal. That didn’t deter YouTuber and speedrunner Quizzle from accomplishing the seemingly impossible.Finishing Resident Evil 7 on Madhouse with only a knife in record time is impressive on its own. To make us all feel like lesser gamers, Quizzle manages to set this record without dying once. This is actually crucial to the speedrun since the in-game timer doesn’t stop when one dies. Quizzle’s final time is 2:49:13 — seven minutes faster than his first attempt. Very impressive!Most of us will probably not be able to replicate this speedrun. However, watching the video is very helpful for showing people how to play Resident Evil 7 more efficiently. Personally, I don’t want to try to top this record, but I do want to beat the game in less than four hours to get the buzz saw. I intend to use this overpowered weapon to finish Madhouse. Yeah, I’m a punk, but I’ve always admitted my cowardice when it comes to playing this game.Quizzle may have set a world record for now but don’t be surprised if he eventually bests his own time. Others will no doubt rise up to claim this prestigious honor for themselves. We wish anyone attempting this specific speedrun good luck. They’re going to need it.last_img read more

Forests of Artificial Trees Could Slow Global Warming

first_img This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Artificial trees. Image: Institution of Mechanical Engineers The engineers from Britain’s Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IME) have asked their government for an investment of 10 million pounds (around 16.3 million dollars) in these ideas to counter the threat to Britain posed by global warming. One of the authors of the report, Dr Tim Fox, said geo-engineering techniques could buy us a few extra years’ breathing space while we transition to a low-carbon world, and may help ward off the climate change scenarios we fear. The report claimed global temperatures could rise by as much as 6°C in the next 90 years if we don’t act soon, and the results would include major refugee movements as well as food and water shortages. Algae-coated buildings. Image: Institution of Mechanical Engineers One proposal was the building of forests of artificial trees. Each synthetic tree could capture up to 10 tons of CO2 a day, which is thousands of times more than a real tree. Each tree would cost around $24,400, and a forest of 100,000 of them could be constructed within the next couple of decades using existing technologies. A forest that size would be able to remove 60% of the UK’s total CO2 emissions. Globally, forests of five to ten million trees could absorb all the CO2 from sources other than power plants.The trees would have a special synthetic filter that absorbs carbon dioxide. When the filters had absorbed their load of CO2 they would be replaced with new filters and the old ones would be stored in empty gas and oil reservoirs, such as depleted oil wells in the North Sea. The trees are already at the prototype stage and their design is well-advanced. The prototype is the size of an average shipping container.Another proposal put forward by the study was to install transparent tubes filled with algae on the outside of buildings. The “algae based photobioreactors”, as they call them, would absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and could later be turned into charcoal, which could then be buried to trap the carbon dioxide. Reflective buildings. Image: Institution of Mechanical Engineers ( — A new study on how technology could help to regulate climate change has studied hundreds of ideas, and selected three considered practical and able to be implemented quickly. The report’s authors propose the construction of forests of artificial trees and installing tubes of algae on the sides of buildings to absorb carbon dioxide. They also proposed painting the roofs of buildings white to keep the Earth cool by reducing the amount of solar radiation absorbed. Explore further Citation: Forests of Artificial Trees Could Slow Global Warming (2009, August 28) retrieved 18 August 2019 from The third idea proposed by the IME was to paint city roofs white to reflect sunlight back into space and prevent it warming the Earth. Cities can be up to 4°C hotter than suburban areas, and reflective roofs could reduce the need for cooling and save up to 60% of a building’s energy use.Dr Fox warned that geo-engineering ideas such as those proposed are not a silver bullet that will solve all the problems, and they would need to be used in conjunction with other measures such as reducing our emissions and adapting to changes in the climate.More information: Read the full Institution of Mechanical Engineers report© 2009 Plant a tree and save the Earth?last_img read more

Buy the right bra dont torture yourself

first_imgLingerie is the most important foundation piece for putting together a great outfit you feel comfortable in and look the best in silhouette. It is important to choose the right bra that not only compliments your body shape but also offers high comfort and best fit. Invest time in having a professional bra fit because the size and shape of your breasts impact your choice of bra shape and size for your perfect fit. You know when you have the right bra fit, when it’s so comfortable you hardly know you are wearing one.Make sure to try on different bras to understand which shape makes you feel most comfortable. Your bra should be a snug fit but never dig into your sides. Also ensure the underwire doesn’t dig into your chest or pinch your skin, if this happens then try a bigger cup size.Your bra straps shouldn’t be too loose or tight and be adjustable to your desired level of elevation.The cups should be smooth and the edges should lay flat against your chest when you have the correct fit, without any bulges over the cup. The best way to ascertain you have the right cup size is to lift your arms and the bra should stay perfectly in place.The biggest mistake most women make is not wearing the right cup size. Band sizes are measured in even numbers, when you have fastened the underband you should only be able to pull the bra 4-5 cms away at the back, to get the best support. Cups should fully encase your breast without spillage.As a practice, get yourself measured every six to twelve months as your size can regularly change due to both weight loss and gain. It is imperative to get yourself fitted by a fully trained bra-fit expert at regular intervals to make sure that you have the right size.If your breasts rest too close to each other then you need to find a bra with moulded cups with high centre gore. This will allow your breasts to settle in respective cups and give a fuller look.If your breasts rest wide apart then you need a bra with sturdy side wings and side boning to support breast tissues and move them into the cups. Go for a push up bra.If you have firm and full breasts then a full coverage bra is a good choice. It gives full support to breast tissues.If you have shallow breasts then demi cup bra with wide straps or a push up bra will suit you the best. It will give that needed push to your breasts and give them a rounded appearance as well. Women with broad shoulders, should go for a balconette bra with wide set straps for steady hold.last_img read more
