Londoners can now rent out their spare rooms using AirBnB, thanks to a change in rules

first_img Share Londoners can now rent out their spare rooms using AirBnB, thanks to a change in rules Show Comments ▼ Tuesday 26 May 2015 9:40 am Tags: Airbnb Sharing economy It is now completely legal for Londoners to let out spare rooms using sites such as AirBnB, thanks to a change in rules.  Until now, you could be slapped with a £20,000 fine for renting part of your home out for fewer than 90 nights without getting planning permission first, but everyone is now free to rent for as few nights as they please.  The 40-year-old rule that dictated this was the Greater London Council Act, which was unique to London. Now, the capital can catch up with the rest of the UK and Europe on the latest travelling trend of renting out rooms in people’s homes rather than hotels. The purpose of the law was to protect London’s rental market, but housing minister Brandon Lewis says today’s change will free homeowners in the capital of the “bureaucratic headache” stemming from planning permission applications just to rent a home out for a few weeks.  These outdated and needless rules that restricted London homeowners in what they could do with their home have now been swept away. Londoners should be able to use their homes for short term lets without the bureaucratic headache of getting planning permission from the council – just like everywhere else in the country.

Comment / Comment: Working together to mitigate the risk of containership fires

first_img By Gareth Burton 05/02/2020 Two new initiatives show how the box shipping industry is now working together to tackle a major safety issue for ships and crews.Fires onboard containerships continue to make the headlines, with costly and sometimes tragic consequences. Indeed, so bad has the problem become that carriers and forwarders have warned shippers of the potential consequences of hazardous or dangerous cargo being mis-declared.Dangerous goods, particularly when not properly identified or accounted for, present a risk to the safety of the ship and, more importantly, the people on board. But the industry is acting to manage the risks and work collaboratively to improve safety for shippers, carriers and crews.Two new initiatives demonstrate how classification societies and carriers can better identify the risks of hazardous cargo and how the latest, largest containerships and the smaller vessels can improve fire safety margins in high-risk areas.In both cases, the critical issue is risk identification and reduction, an acknowledgement that led ABS and the Cargo Incident Notification System (CINS) to develop a risk-based approach to stowing dangerous goods on container vessels.CINS is a box shipping line initiative founded to increase safety in the supply chain, reduce the number of cargo incidents onboard ships and highlight the risks caused by certain cargo and/or packing failures.The CINS publication, Safety Considerations for Ship Operators Related to Risk-Based Stowage of Dangerous Goods on Containerships, is the product of a collaboration between CINS members, facilitated by ABS, to develop operational guidance.Critically, the guidance was developed from key lessons learned, provided by CINS members from past incidents.It is a risk-based approach that frames goals, functional requirements and strategies associated with dangerous goods stowage to provide practical advice aimed at advancing safety on containerships.ABS has also published its Guide for Fire-Fighting Systems for Cargo Areas of Container Carriers, the first guide of its kind to address firefighting and safety systems of container cargo holds, the location of a series of high-profile fires.Development of the guidance reflects the fact that container vessels have grown ever larger in recent years and the volume – and nature – of the cargo they carry has expanded significantly.Aligned with the core ABS safety mission, the guidance addresses this issue and provides advice for the development of more robust vessel designs that are better suited to address this challenge.The guide is for the use of designers, builders, owners and operators and specifies the ABS requirements for addressing fire safety in four key areas: fire-fighting for containers stowed on deck; fire-fighting for containers stowed below; fire safety of the deckhouse; and container hold flooding as a last-resort measure for fire-fighting.These notations address early fire detection, more efficient fire suppression, better protection of crew and the safety considerations associated with cargo hold flooding as a means of fire-fighting; requirements that go above and beyond current SOLAS and related industry regulations.For more than 50 years, ABS has been a trusted technical advisor for the containership sector. From the very first containership in operation to today’s most advanced ships, ABS has a strong track record for aiding the containership sector in identifying and leveraging new concepts to improve operations, protect the environment and enhance safety.Safety Considerations for Ship Operators Related to Risk-Based Stowage of Dangerous Goods on Containerships is available on the CINS Website: www.cinsnet.com.The ABS Guide for Fire-Fighting Systems for Cargo Areas of Container Carriers is available to download here.This a guest post by Gareth Burton, American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) vice president for technology ID 133214215 © Denys Yelmanov | Dreamstime.comlast_img read more

Why I’m worried about prediabetes

first_img Prevention is keyThe good news is that diabetes-related health complications can be minimized — and even prevented — by adopting a healthy, well-balanced diet and participating in regular physical activity that maintains your blood glucose level in a normal or close-to-normal range.The landmark Diabetes Prevention Program demonstrated that losing a minimum of 7 percent body weight, coupled with 2 ½ hours of brisk walking or other similar type of physical activity a week, could reverse prediabetes or at least delay the onset of diabetes. The folks in that study received personalized counseling about their diet, physical activity, and lifestyle behaviors to achieve these weight loss and activity goals. Follow-up research confirmed that this type of personalized counseling was more cost-effective over the long haul than just dispensing medication to lower blood sugar without making these lifestyle changes. In other words, taking a pill isn’t going to cut it. What’s needed are positive changes in diet and lifestyle. Here’s the solution: The U.S. House and Senate have recently introduced the bipartisan Preventing Diabetes in Medicare Act. It would cover medical nutrition therapy counseling for Medicare recipients with prediabetes. If passed, the law would likely force private health insurance providers to also cover the cost of counseling for those with prediabetes.The damage of diabetesDiabetes is one of the top seven leading causes of death among Americans. That may be a bit of an underestimate, since having it confers a double whammy: individuals with diabetes are also at risk for heart disease, the No. 1 killer of Americans. In shopping terms, this is a BOGO sale — buy one, get one free — gone very, very wrong.advertisement About the Author Reprints Joan Salge Blake Privacy Policy Related: [email protected] First OpinionWhy I’m worried about prediabetes Related: ‘Type 3 diabetes’: New links emerge between poor glucose metabolism and Alzheimer’s disease Please enter a valid email address.center_img Here’s the science behind the disease: Your body depends on a particular type of sugar, glucose, that it extracts from the foods you eat or regenerates from starch stored in the liver. In fact, your brain, nervous system, and red blood cells depend heavily on glucose to function properly.Normally, the body relies on the hormone known as insulin to usher glucose out of the bloodstream and into cells. But when cells lose the ability to respond to insulin’s “open up for glucose” signal, or the production of insulin falters, glucose builds up in the bloodstream. Too much blood sugar is the hallmark of prediabetes and diabetes. Over time, a high level of blood glucose can damage:the nervous system, causing chronic pain, tingling, and the loss of feeling in the feet and lower legs.the eyes. Diabetes-related eye disease is the leading cause of impaired vision and blindness among adults.the kidneys, often leading to kidney failure and the need for dialysis.the heart and arteries. Diabetes is a significant risk factor for heart attack, stroke, peripheral artery disease, and other cardiovascular problems.People with prediabetes have higher-than-normal levels of blood sugar, but not high enough to be classified as diabetes. Being overweight increases the risk of developing prediabetes, as do eating an unhealthy diet and physical inactivity. The hazard of prediabetes isn’t just that it might lead to diabetes. Individuals with it are also at a higher risk of developing heart disease and stroke, even if they don’t yet have full-fledged diabetes.

Huh/AP The Real World, Diabetes: As cameras roll at a Jamaican resort, desperate patients seek healing Leave this field empty if you’re human: The American Diabetes Association recommends that individuals with diabetes receive individualized medical nutrition therapy, preferably by a registered dietitian knowledgeable in this area, to help them clean up their diets and get off the couch. Luckily, this type of personalized nutrition counseling is covered by most health insurance plans. The association also supports the same approach, and insurance coverage, for those with prediabetes.While the Preventing Diabetes in Medicare Act is a no-brainer, it may not be passed without public support. Consider contacting your representatives in the House of Representatives and the Senate and telling them you support this bill. Americans could be a co-pay away from getting a handle on diabetes by taking care of prediabetes.Joan Salge Blake is a clinical associate professor in the nutrition program at Boston University. She has received funds from General Mills and Mars for conference travel and for providing an educational webinar for nutrition and fitness professionals. There’s an epidemic of prediabetes in the United States: 84 million Americans have this condition but most don’t know it. Prediabetes puts an individual on track for developing full-blown diabetes in five years. Although simple strategies can derail that train, one of them — nutrition counseling — is missing.I worry that without preventive efforts like counseling about nutrition and other lifestyle choices, many people will unnecessarily make the journey from prediabetes to diabetes. And that would be a shame.Here’s the issue: While most insurance plans cover nutrition counseling for people with diabetes, it isn’t covered for those with prediabetes. That flies in the face of research documenting that lifestyle counseling is an effective way to halt the steady progression of prediabetes to diabetes and reduce the long-term costs associated with treating the complications like heart attacks and limb amputations that diabetes inflicts.advertisement Tags Congressdiabetesnutritionlast_img read more

The All-North Korean Pig Farming Sector

first_img By Yoo Gwan Hee – 2010.07.10 7:26pm RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The All-North Korean Pig Farming Sector News News The 8th issue of Rimjingang, the periodical written by North Korean underground journalists, sheds light on North Korea’s private livestock industry. One article, “Livestock Industry Developing from Private Means of Living into Private Enterprise,” describes how pig farming has developed during and since the famine period. It explains how, under the functioning planned economy, the “livestock industry” amounted to each household unit raising pigs to sell on the side, but now the planned economy is little more than a distant memory and the livestock sector has been specialized and systematized into sectors; breeding, butchery, distribution and sale.That is why in North Korean markets 90% of goods are Chinese, but 100% of pigs and pork is North Korean. Under the planned economy, roughly 20% of people in rural areas privately raised pigs and sold them to state meat procurement stores for two kilograms of corn per kilo of meat, the report notes. But from the mid 1980s, procurement stores bought them for cash, so competition grew and eventually the stores had to close due to increasing prices and their own lack of ready cash. Since the 1990s, distribution has stopped and more than 50% of people have started raising pigs in more specialized ways, it adds.The report goes on to explain that during the March of Tribulation people figured out that their salaries, even when received, represented a mere tiny fraction of the labor value they could realize by trading illegally in the jangmadang. Many were unwilling to put up with it.“Going through the March of Tribulation, the profit motive through the market has opened the door to new food lives which the Leader cannot open with his slogan, ‘reform food lives with meat,’” the report asserts. “Now, since a powerful supply and demand system has been spontaneously established, anybody can afford to eat meat as long as they can earn money.”“’Leave us alone!’ is the real voice of the people of Chosun,” the report concludes, adding that the phenomenon of the Chosun pig farming industry implies the clear potential to develop modern industry in North Korea.The 8th edition of Rimjingang was published in Korean on June 30th.

This hot Audi wagon is a perfect homage to an ’80s race car

first_img See More Videos The vehicle was conceived by trainees at the company’s factory in Neckarsulm, Germany, and features tons of throwbacks to Audi’s race cars of the late ’80s and early ’90s.The colour scheme is obviously the most noticeable part of the throwback, with black, grey, white, and red stripes enveloping the cross section of the vehicle. The exhaust now exits out the side (behind the doors, unlike the race car, which dumped it in front of the doors) and there’s a huge rear wing to match the equally huge front air intake.Inside, the regularly posh interior has been tossed in the bin to save weight, and the only thing you’ll find is a set of Recaro bucket seats with red and black colouring to match the exterior livery, plus a roll cage. The wheels are also a huge talking point, as they mimic the original turbofan style of the GTO, too.There’s only one in the whole world, and it’s probably going to stay that way, but we’re glad that Audi took some of its free time to put some neat stickers on its wagon.LISTEN: Electrifying Canada’s extensive truck and bus fleets RELATED TAGSAudiStation WagonLuxuryClassic CarsLuxury CarsClassic Cars & TrucksLuxury VehiclesNew Vehicles First Look: 2022 Lexus NX The sport-cute’s looks have been softened, but its powertrains and infotainment offerings have been sharpened Trending Videos Trending in Canada PlayThe Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car everPlay3 common new car problems (and how to prevent them) | Maintenance Advice | Driving.caPlayFinal 5 Minivan Contenders | Driving.caPlay2021 Volvo XC90 Recharge | Ministry of Interior Affairs | Driving.caPlayThe 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is a new take on Canada’s fave truck | Driving.caPlayBuying a used Toyota Tundra?

Amount of dust blown across the West is increasing, says CU-Boulder study

first_img“What we know is that there are a lot of dust storms, and if you ask people on the Western Slope of Colorado, or in Utah or Arizona, you’ll often hear them say, ‘Yeah, I grew up in this area, and I don’t remember it ever being like this before,’ ” said CU-Boulder geological sciences Associate Professor Jason Neff. “So there is anecdotal evidence out there that things are changing, but no scientific data that can tell us whether or not that’s true, at least for the recent past.” Published: June 10, 2013 A dust storm blows into Mesa Verde National Park. Photo courtesy of Jason Neff Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mailcenter_img The amount of dust being blown across the landscape has increased over the last 17 years in large swaths of the West, according to a new study led by the University of Colorado Boulder.The escalation in dust emissions — which may be due to the interplay of several factors, including increased windstorm frequency, drought cycles and changing land-use patterns — has implications both for the areas where the dust is first picked up by the winds and for the places where the dust is put back down.“Dust storms cause a large-scale reorganization of nutrients on the surface of the Earth,” said Janice Brahney, who led the study as a CU-Boulder doctoral student. “And we don’t routinely monitor dust in most places, which means we don’t have a good handle on how the material is moving, when it’s moving and where it’s going.”Based on anecdotal evidence, such as incidents of dust coating the snowpack in the southern Rockies and a seemingly greater number of dust storms noticed by Western residents, scientists have suspected that dust emissions were increasing. But because dust has not been routinely measured over long periods of time, it was difficult to say for sure.“What we know is that there are a lot of dust storms, and if you ask people on the Western Slope of Colorado, or in Utah or Arizona, you’ll often hear them say, ‘Yeah, I grew up in this area, and I don’t remember it ever being like this before,’ ” said CU-Boulder geological sciences Associate Professor Jason Neff, Brahney’s adviser and a co-author of the paper. “So there is anecdotal evidence out there that things are changing, but no scientific data that can tell us whether or not that’s true, at least for the recent past.”For the new study, recently published online in the journal Aeolian Research, the research team set out to determine if they could use calcium deposition as a proxy for dust measurements. Calcium can make its way into the atmosphere — before falling back to earth along with precipitation — through a number of avenues, including coal-fired power plants, forest fires, ocean spray and, key to this study, wind erosion of soils.The amount of calcium dissolved in precipitation has long been measured by the National Atmospheric Deposition Program, or NADP, which first began recording the chemicals dissolved in precipitation in the late 1970s to better understand the phenomena of acid rain.Brahney and her colleagues reviewed calcium deposition data from 175 NADP sites across the United States between 1994 and 2010, and they found that calcium deposition had increased at 116 of them. The sites with the greatest increases were clustered in the Northwest, the Midwest and the Intermountain West, with Colorado, Wyoming and Utah seeing especially large increases.The scientists were able to determine that the increase was linked to dust erosion because none of the other possible sources of atmospheric calcium — including industrial emissions, forest fires or ocean spray — had increased during the 17-year period studied.It’s also likely that the calcium deposition record underrepresents the amount of dust that’s being blown around, said Brahney, who is now a postdoctoral researcher at the University of British Columbia in Canada. That’s because the NADP network only measures dust that has collided with water in the atmosphere before precipitating to earth — not dust that is simply moved by the wind. And not all dust contains the same amount of calcium.The increase in dust erosion matters, the researchers said, because it can impoverish the soil in the areas where dust is being lost. Wind tends to pick up the finer particles in the soils, and those are the same particles that have the most nutrients and can hold onto the most soil moisture, Brahney said.Increasing amounts of dust in the atmosphere also can cause people living in the rural West a variety of problems, including poor air quality and low visibility. In extreme cases, dust storms have shut down freeways, creating problems for travelers.The areas where the dust travels to are also affected, though the impacts are more mixed. When dust is blown onto an existing snowpack, as is often the case in the Rockies, the dark particles better absorb the sun’s energy and cause the snowpack to melt more quickly. But the dust that’s blown in also brings nutrients to alpine areas, and the calcium in dust can buffer the effects of acid rain.In the future, researchers working in Neff’s lab hope to get a more precise picture of dust movement by measuring the dust itself. In the last five years, large vacuum-like measuring instruments designed specifically to suck in dust emissions have been installed at sites between the canyon lands of Utah and the Front Range of the Rockies. Once scientists have enough data collected, they’ll be able to look for trends in dust emissions without relying on proxies.The study was funded by the National Science Foundation.Contact: Janice Brahney, [email protected] Jason Neff, [email protected] Laura Snider, CU media relations, [email protected] Categories:AcademicsScience & TechnologyEnvironmentCampus CommunityNews Headlineslast_img read more
