Women in Science Work for Less Money

first_imgStudy hard, receive a science or engineering degree, and your reward will be a well-paying job in your chosen field. That’s part of the sales pitch for those trying to attract more women into science. But according to a new U.S. government study, the “reward” includes earning 12% less than your male counterparts. The 11-page report, “Women in STEM: A Gender Gap to Innovation,” is the first analysis of women working in technical fields (STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) by the Commerce Department’s Economics and Statistics Administration (ESA). The study is based on data from the 2009 American Community Survey, an ongoing questionnaire by the U.S. Census Bureau that supplements the decennial census. The report’s overall conclusion that women are underrepresented in the U.S. STEM workforce — holding 24% of all STEM jobs while comprising 48% of all workers — won’t be a surprise to anyone who follows the issue. But they may find the lack of progress depressing: “Over the past decade, this underrepresentation has remained fairly constant, even as women’s share of the college educated workforce has increased,” explains a departmental press release on the report, released yesterday.

So it adds to the puzzle of what is it that we are doing inside our schools and our families that makes STEM jobs seemingly less attractive to girls.” Blank said the survey didn’t analyze the gender salary gap by work setting, such as industry versus academia. “But we did look at the gap by occupations,” she notes. “And what’s interesting is that engineering, which has the lowest percentage of women, actually has the smallest gender gap. It’s only 7 cents.” She said the gender earnings gap “is one of the big research questions in economics. Why does it exist, even after you control for presumably what are all of the productivity attributes?” Even so, she’s willing to hazard a guess. One answer, she says, is that “women don’t seem to get the same number of promotions and wage increases as men do.”last_img read more

LEDs created from wonder material could revolutionize lighting and displays

first_img N. Zhou et al., Sci. Adv. 5, EAAV8141 (2019) LEDs created from wonder material could revolutionize lighting and displays By Robert F. ServiceJun. 4, 2019 , 4:45 PM When combined with polarizing filters, 3D-printed perovskite nanowires produce adjustable multicolor displays. In solar cells, the cheap, easy to make materials called perovskites are adept at turning photons into electricity. Now, perovskites are turning the tables, converting electrons into light with an efficiency on par with that of the commercial organic light-emitting diodes (LEDs) found in cellphones and flat screen TVs. And in a glimpse of how they might one day be harnessed, researchers reported last week in Science Advances that they’ve used a 3D printer to pattern perovskites for use in full-color displays.“It’s a fantastic result, and quite inspirational,” says Richard Friend, a physicist at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom whose team created the first perovskite LED in 2014. The result raises hopes that the computer screens and giant displays of the future will consist of these cheap crystalline substances, made from common ingredients. Friend cautions, however, that the new perovskite displays aren’t yet commercially viable.The materials in current semiconductor LEDs, including the organic versions, require processing at high temperatures in vacuum chambers to ensure the resulting semiconductors are pristine. By contrast, perovskites can be prepared simply by mixing their chemical components in solution at room temperature. Only a brief heat treatment is needed to crystallize them. And even though the perovskite crystals end up with imperfections, these defects typically don’t destroy the materials’ ability to emit light.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)In most perovskite LEDs, electrodes sandwiching the light-emitting material deliver charges—negatively charged electrons and positively charged electron vacancies. When the charges meet at the center of the sandwich, electrons fill the vacancies and give up a bit of their energy as a photon of light.The color of the photon depends on the perovskite’s chemical constituents, enabling researchers to tune the color by changing the perovskite’s recipe. The Cambridge group’s first perovskite LEDs glowed near-infrared, red, or green, depending on their makeup. Since then, the team and other groups have made a full spectrum of colors.The earliest perovskite LEDs converted only 0.76% of electrons into photons. That’s because electrical charges moving through the material got stuck at the boundaries between the myriad crystallites making up the material. But numerous teams have overcome that hurdle. Late last year in Nature Photonics, for example, Friend’s group reported that by adding a light-emitting polymer layer that helps steer charges around the surface defects, it had made red perovskite LEDs with an efficiency of 20.1%.A team led by chemist Edward Sargent at the University of Toronto in Canada took a different approach last year, spiking its perovskite recipe with an additive that formed crystalline shells around the perovskite crystallites. The shells blocked the defects from trapping charges, resulting in a green perovskite LED with 20.3% efficiency, the team reported in Nature. That remains well below the efficiency of many inorganic LEDs, but is probably good enough for some applications.Researchers led by Feng Gao, a physicist at Linköping University in Sweden, reported online on 25 March in Nature Photonics that they developed yet another way to tackle the defect problem. They targeted the tendency of lead ions at the edges of perovskite crystallites to trap passing electrons. With an additive that bound to the lead, they reduced the ions’ hunger for electrons and created a near-infrared LED that had 21.6% efficiency.The pace of improvements in the past 5 years has been “quite exceptional,” Friend says. Still, none of the perovskite devices survives more than about 50 hours, well below the estimated 10,000 hours needed for commercial use. Just why the perovskite crystals fall apart after a few dozen hours isn’t clear, Gao says. But short lifetimes also plagued early organic LEDs, he notes. And perovskite solar cell–makers have largely solved similar longevity issues by protecting their devices from air and humidity. “I’m optimistic this area can also develop quickly, and perovskite LEDs can improve,” Gao says.If they do, the latest work from researchers led by Jennifer Lewis, a materials scientist at Harvard University, could point to new strategies for constructing displays. Lewis and her colleagues used a 3D printer to arrange tiny, wire-shaped perovskite structures in multicolor displays. As the “ink” carrying the nanowires passed through the printer nozzle, shear forces aligned them, Lewis says. The common orientation of the nanowires gave light from each LED a single preferred oscillation, or polarization.For their prototype displays, Lewis’s team didn’t wire each LED to electrodes; instead, the researchers exposed the entire display to ultraviolet (UV) light. Like an applied electric voltage, the UV light kicks electrons out of their normal state, allowing them to move. Then, they can recombine with vacancies and emit visible light. But because the emitted light was polarized, Lewis and her colleagues could use polarizing filters to control it.In one example, the researchers used three different perovskite formulations to create displays in which each pixel contained a red, green, and blue spot side by side, with the orientation of the nanowires in each spot offset by 60°. By rotating a polarizing filter, the researchers could mix colors or isolate a single color.Plenty of hurdles remain for perovskite LEDs, Sargent says. But he adds, “This work jumps ahead 10 years in the future and shows what cool things we can do.”last_img read more

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen tops practice session at Chinese Grand Prix after mist forces abandonment of first practice

first_imgThe opening practice session for the Chinese Formula One Grand Prix was halted twice then abandoned because the medical support helicopter was unable to operate in poor visibility on Friday.The 90-minute session was finally called off with five minutes remaining on the clock at a drizzly and misty Shanghai International Circuit.

Wales to name Warren Gatland’s successor a year before he takes over

first_imgWales will announce Warren Gatland’s successor in the summer – more than a year before the new head coach takes up the position.The Welsh Rugby Union has drawn up a shortlist of three candidates to take over from the 54-year-old, who has been in place for 10 years and will help choose his successor. The early announcement is designed to ensure the union’s preferred candidate is not tempted by other offers.“We are targeting the summer to make the appointment,” said the WRU chief executive, Martyn Phillips. “We have drawn up a shortlist and we have had conversations with one or two others and will be staying in touch with them. The game tends to work in cycles between World Cups, which means people will be available in the summer of 2019. If I was the new coach, I would want to sit down with Warren and find out what things are like.”The shortlist is believed to consist of three of Gatland’s New Zealander compatriots: Glasgow’s Dave Rennie, the Scarlets’ Wayne Pivac and Chris Boyd, who won a Super Rugby title with the Hurricanes. Only Pivac, who was part of Fiji’s management team when they beat Wales in the 2007 World Cup, has international experience.“That is not one of the top criteria,” Phillips said. “Having watched Warren on the Lions tour to New Zealand last summer we want someone who can make really tough calls in selection. We do not have a thing that he needs to be Welsh.”The WRU chairman, Gareth Davies, said Gatland would become involved in the process to choose his successor now that the shortlist had been decided. “We have met a dozen guys over the last 12 months, having fireside chats to find out what they are like as people as well as the rugby element, and have got to the position where three tick the boxes,” he said. “They are aware they will be going to the next stage and they will all be available should they be offered the job.“The chief criterion for me is someone who is successful and has won something. He will have to work closely with our four regions and all three have bought into that: if any of them had said they saw themselves only as the head coach of the national side they would not have made the shortlist.“We want to involve Warren in the process moving ahead because he understands the modern requirements of a coach. Whether the new coach will have a role in the 2019 World Cup will be considered but it would be down to Warren. We are moving quickly because top coaches tend to work in four-year cycles and none of the three would have to break a contract.” Topics … we have a small favour to ask.

Increase in Deaths Caused By Non-Communicable Diseases

first_imgMinister of Health, Honourable Dr. Fenton Ferguson, says that over half of Jamaica’s deaths are caused by non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and injuries, a situation that is threatening the country’s economic and social development. In explaining the impact of the shift in Jamaica’s morbidity profile, the Health Minister, said these illnesses cost much more to treat, with punishing results for the victims and their families.  He stated that NCDs are responsible for 56 per cent of Jamaican deaths, of which 20 per cent are caused by cancers. Dr. Ferguson made the disclosure while delivering the opening address on Friday January 25, at the 11th Annual Caribbean Neurosciences Symposium and Workshop, being held at the Montego Bay Convention Centre.  The event takes place from January 24 to 27. “Chronic non-communicable diseases alone cost the Ministry of Health over US$170 million to treat annually, and while the ministry is committed to providing the level of care required, there is a serious disparity in terms of the opportunity cost of treating these avoidable illnesses and their complications,” he stated. Quoting statistics which shows the growing scale of the increase in non-communicable diseases in the country between the year 2000 and 2008, Dr. Ferguson equated non-communicable diseases to poverty, adding that they both create a vicious cycle. He informed that surveys have shown that men and women are affected differently by the risk factors associated with non-communicable diseases. “NCDs cost throw persons into poverty, who are just on the edge, and now impacts significantly on all levels of health services, health care cost and the health workforce, as well as national productivity in both emerging and established economies,” he stated. The Health Minister added that there are “a host of other debilitating economic effects of NCDs, which includes the effects of premature mortality, which reduces the labour supply and productivity and weakens the return on investments in human capital such as education”. He stated that it will take a concerted effort from government and the society to put policies in place to solve the problems caused by the NCDs in a cost effective way.last_img read more

Uber Eats team opens up about the future of the service in Canada

Follow @Tara_Deschamps on Twitter.Tara Deschamps, The Canadian Press TORONTO — When Uber chose Toronto for the global debut of its Eats service in December 2015, Faye Pang recalls the tech giant had just 10 employees taking up a small space in the ride-hailing company’s office.As the delivery service progressed from its initial offering of a handful of local lunch specials to a vast array of dishes around the globe, the growing headcount forced it to hold meetings in movie theatres and eventually move out of Uber’s headquarters into its own office in Scotiabank Plaza in the city’s financial district.According to some of the most influential members of the now 150-strong Uber Eats Canada team, that growth has no end in sight.  “Delivery in general is really underpenetrated in Canada, relative to other countries globally,” said Pang, Uber Eats Canada’s head of restaurant operations, in an interview. “As big as we think Uber Eats is today, there is still a lot of room to grow.”The data appears to support her outlook. According to Ipsos Foodservice Monitor research, delivery and take-out accounted for eight per cent of sales for quick service restaurants and six per cent of full-service restaurants sales in Canada for the first quarter of 2018.It’s not just stats like those Uber Eats has to contend with on its path to growth. Hostile city councils, fee-averse mom-and-pop restaurants, far-flung suburban markets and fierce competition from rivals including Foodora and SkipTheDishes present formidable obstacles, even for a high-profile brand such as Uber.And Uber Eats has still yet to push into potentially lucrative food offerings beyond restaurants, such as meal kits, restaurant supplies, catering and groceries.Despite a sprinkling of job postings for roles in its new Toronto grocery team, there’s been no launch yet and the brand has said little about what that service might look like.It has revealed a few hints in job postings. The team will build “a brand new product offering, which will fundamentally evolve how people purchase their groceries” and chief executive officer Dara Khosrowshahi has said that it would be “magical” to deliver food in 30 minutes or less and that grocery is an “adjacency.”The head of Uber Eats Canada, Dan Park, said it’s too early to say if it is looking for a grocery chain to partner with or plans to source and sell its own food.“Like on-demand prepared food, grocery is a huge business and there is huge potential there,” he said. “We envision Uber Eats being a platform where you can get everything and anything you want at a touch of a button, when it comes to eating.”He admitted his team has looked at the potential for subscription services for customers repeatedly making Uber Eats orders, but wouldn’t share more around the possibility of such an offering coming to the platform.For now, Park, Pang and Uber Eats Canada sales manager Kristy Bates are content with focusing on how to get more restaurants and customers on the platform and to get existing partners to use it even more.Bates said the biggest difficulty is educating restaurants about how the service works and convincing them that the 30 per cent fee is worth it when many are already being squeezed by minimum wage increases, lower margins and higher food costs. Some have complained they can’t use the platform and still be profitable.To ease their concerns, Uber Eats points to statistics about incremental sales from the 10,000 restaurants that have engaged the service.Uber is already seeing restaurants use the data in innovative ways that go beyond figuring out what menu items are most popular.“There was a restaurant in North America that was getting some feedback on their risotto from our restaurant management tool (that shares data with restaurants) and realized that the declining ratings were because the chef had changed the arborio rice that they were using without letting the owner now,” said Pang.“In Canada, we had a virtual restaurant on the platform, French Takos, that actually ended up switching to brick-and-mortar because it was so much more successful.”On the consumer side, Park said there are still suburban markets to serve and customers who haven’t downloaded the app.Plus, Uber Eats in Canada is dealing with a market that is still “relatively new” to food delivery.“In most people’s minds, delivery is something that people do on a Friday night when they don’t want to cook,” he said.But Park said the company is seeing more orders for breakfast, lunch or dinner or late night snacks, as well as deliveries to hockey arenas, parks, birthday parties and schools.“I think there is room to grow everywhere,” he said. “This business is only three years old and we are just starting out.” read more

Latest murder underlines dangers faced by Pakistani journalists says UN official

Muhammad Khan Sasoli, 36, worked as a correspondent for Royal TV and the INP news agency in Khuzdhar and was the president of the town’s press club. He was shot four times by two men on a motorcycle outside his home and died instantly on 14 December. Irina Bokova, the Director-General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), condemned the murder, which follows the killing of three Pakistani journalists in two separate incidents on 6 December. “Acts of violence against journalists represent attacks on freedom of expression. Only by protecting this fundamental right can we have democratic societies,” she said in a press release.“I call upon the authorities to do their utmost to investigate this crime and arrest the perpetrators, in order to put a stop to violence against journalists in Pakistan. Three other journalists died this month in Pakistan besides Mr. Sasoli, a fact that underlines the extreme dangers faced by media professionals in the country.”Altaf Chandio was reportedly shot dead outside his home in Sindh Province on 6 December, while Abdul Wahab and Pervez Khan were killed in a suicide bombing in the north-west tribal area on the same day. 17 December 2010A senior United Nations official has called on Pakistani authorities to probe the murder of a journalist gunned down in the south-western province of Balochistan this week, the fourth media professional to be killed in the country in less than two weeks. read more

Small window open for putting Middle East peace back on track Security

“We have an historic opportunity to establish a vigorous and determined front of peace when elsewhere in the region we are at the brink of war,” Terje Roed-Larsen, Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, said in his briefing to the Council on the latest developments in the region. That front of peace could be a source of long-term stability in the region, but it required dedicated attention and action from all, he added.For the first time in two-and-a-half years, Mr. Roed-Larsen said he believed there was a real opportunity to not only begin rebuilding the shattered Israeli and Palestinian relationship, but also finally to start implementing a process that could lead to the realization of the shared vision and goals for peace and security in the region. However, it was necessary to get the parties first back to the table, and that required three critical decisions, taken in parallel by the key actors in that process.First, the Palestinian Authority must make a fundamental decision on reform to re-establish itself as a credible partner for Israel and the international community, Mr. Roed-Larsen stressed. The completion yesterday of the appointment of a credible and empowered Prime Minister was a major step. Now the Palestinian Authority must do everything in its power to curb terrorism and all forms of violence and threats.Second, the international community, through the Quartet – Russian Federation, United States, European Union and United Nations – must introduce the so-called Road Map, as agreed in its final draft on 20 December. The parties would be asked to make contributions on how best to proceed with its implementation. Finally, the Israeli Government must sit down at the negotiating table on that basis, and take immediate and serious steps to prevent harm to innocent Palestinian civilians and alleviate the widespread suffering caused by its security measures.

Sport Management Alumni Day to be biggest yet

More than 30 Sport Management alumni will return to campus Monday, March 12 to share their experiences and insider knowledge with the program’s current students.The sixth annual Sport Management (SPMA) Alumni Day is an opportunity for the program’s near 750 students to network with industry professionals and learn more about various careers available to them.“With nine panels and a networking session, this will be the largest SPMA Alumni Day to date,” says Sport Management Experiential Education Co-ordinator Emily Allan.The day will feature sessions examining leadership in the sport industry, policy, analytics, public relations and marketing, among other topics.Fourth-year student Matt Milligan, who is helping to organize the event, says it’s a great chance for students to find out about life after graduation.“As a transfer student, this is my second Alumni Day,” Milligan says. “One of the biggest takeaways for me from last year was seeing that there are a lot more career opportunities out there than I thought were available.”While many SPMA alumni work in the public, non-profit and commercial sport sectors, there are other fields that attract SPMA graduates.“I have been really impressed with how diverse our SPMA alumni are. Learning about the careers available outside of sport has shown me just how transferrable our knowledge and skills are going to be,” says Milligan, an Ottawa native. “There really is no limit to what people can do with this degree, whether they choose to stay in the sport industry or not.”The alumni in attendance will represent a broad spectrum of organizations, positions and industry sectors.Milligan is particularly looking forward to the event’s meet and greet luncheon.“It’s a great time to network, meet people and have interesting conversations about our futures in a friendly and relaxed environment,” he says.This year’s executive panel will provide students and guests with a behind-the-scenes account of working for a championship team from Toronto FC employees. The panel discussion takes place from 1 to 2 p.m. in TH 325 and is open to everyone.“We have a really great group of students and presenters contributing to this event,” Allan says. “There is always a lot of excitement and anticipation building to make this day happen. It provides real insight into what careers are available and we often hear that our graduates were inspired to pursue a certain career path because of something they heard at this event.”More information on SPMA Alumni Day and a full schedule of panelists is available on the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences website. read more

Toblerone redesign emblematic of devastating consequences of Brexit claims SNP politician

ASA Praises New Senate Renewable Fuels Legislation Bill Promotes AmericanMade Energy from

first_imgThe American Soybean Association (ASA) praised Senators Chuck Hagel (R-NE) and Tim Johnson (D-SD) for their introduction today of the “Renewable Fuels for Energy Security Act of 2001” bill. The legislation sets a federal goal for increased national use of renewable fuels, such as biodiesel and ethanol. Under the measure, renewable fuels would account for 3 percent of highway transportation fuels by 2011 and 5 percent by 2016. The measure will allow flexible approaches to comply with program goals, in ways that best fit within the operations of fuel providers.“This legislation is needed to help renewable fuels become part of the solution as America seeks ways to reduce years of U.S. dependence on petroleum products. This bill is an important step to foster domestic energy production,” said ASA First Vice President Bart Ruth, a producer from Rising City, Neb. “U.S. consumers will benefit from the shift toward cleaner-burning and better performing fuels while U.S. farmers can use a much-needed boost to soybean prices.”Senator Hagel said, “By establishing a renewable fuel standard, we can improve our air quality, strengthen our national security, reduce our trade deficit, decrease dependency on foreign oil, and create an expanded market for America’s farmers.”Senator Johnson said, “I believe renewable fuels such as ethanol and biodiesel should be the centerpiece of our future energy strategy, because these fuels are home grown solutions that benefit our farmers, provide cleaner air, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. This legislation establishes an aggressive, but realistic, growth pattern for ethanol and biodiesel production and use in the United States.”Commonly produced from soybean and other vegetable oils, biodiesel contains no petroleum. It can be blended easily with diesel. Biodiesel is popular in Europe where motorists use 250 million gallons annually. According to the National Biodiesel Board (NBB), U.S. biodiesel producers are expected to manufacture 20 million gallons in fiscal year 2001, a four-fold increase from last year.“Biodiesel’s growing popularity reflects the increasing interest in it as a cleaner-burning fuel for school buses, national parks, government fleets and for other fuel users across the nation that are addressing air quality issues,” said NBB Executive Director Joe Jobe. “A national commitment toward the utilization of renewable fuels will provide a meaningful boost to the biodiesel industry and our national energy policy.”The fuel offers many environmental and operational benefits. It has the highest energy content of any alternative fuel, which is especially important in heavy-duty diesel applications. Biodiesel is the only alternative fuel to have passed the rigorous Health Effects testing requirements of the Clean Air Act; is non-toxic, biodegradable and free of sulfur. Independent studies also show that the use of biodiesel in conventional diesel engines results in a substantial reduction of pollutants, including carbon dioxide. Moreover, it increases the lubricity of diesel, which is especially valuable when the sulfur content of diesel is reduced. Additional information on the attributes of biodiesel is available at http://www.biodiesel.org/ .Every 100 million gallons of biodiesel requires 760 million pounds of a feedstock, such as vegetable oils, recycled grease or animal fats. If soybean oil were the only feedstock used, 100 million gallons of biodiesel would reduce by one-third the current surplus of 2.1 billion pounds of soy oil. Reducing soy oil supplies by this amount would increase the U.S. soy oil price by an estimated 1.5 cents per pound. With 11 pounds of soy oil in a bushel of soybeans, this would raise U.S. soybean prices by as much as 16.5 cents per bushel.last_img read more

Saint Petersburg supermarket bombing injures 10

first_imgPeople gather outside a supermarket after an explosion in St Petersburg, Russia on 27 December 2017. ReutersA homemade bomb blast at a supermarket in the Russian city of Saint Petersburg injured 10 people Wednesday, officials said.“According to preliminary information, an explosion of an unidentified object occurred in a store,” Investigative Committee spokeswoman Svetlana Petrenko said in a statement.The blast was caused by a “homemade explosive device with the power equivalent to 200 grammes of TNT filled with lethal fragments,” she said.“The investigation is looking at all possible causes of what happened,” she said, adding that a probe for attempted murder had been launched.“Ten people have been hospitalised, their lives are not in danger,” said the head of Saint Petersburg investigative unit Alexander Klaus, Interfax news agency reported.An AFP correspondent at the scene observed first responders and police as well as a car belonging the Federal Security Service (FSB), which investigates acts of terror.Police said the blast occurred in a supermarket northeast of the city centre, with sources telling Russian agencies that the explosive device had been placed in a storage locker.“About 6:30pm there was the sound of a blast. As a result, several people have been injured,” the Saint Petersburg police said, giving the incident’s location.“There is no fire. All shoppers have been evacuated,” an emergencies ministry representative told Interfax.Witness Artur Yeritsyan told TASS news agency that he heard the blast and saw smoke in the shop, but that there were not a lot of customers at the time, with some victims being taken away by ambulances.Russia’s second city Saint Petersburg was the target of a metro bombing in April, which lead to fourteen deaths and dozens of people wounded.The bombing was claimed by a group linked to Al-Qaeda which said it was a message to countries engaged in war with Muslims.last_img read more

How Dorkable Is Your Business

first_imgMay 4, 2015 Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Register Now » 4 min read It’s no surprise that businesses often make basic mistakes when it comes to cybersecurity. Whether it’s using “password” as a password, not having a firewall set up, forgetting to run security updates on the operating system, giving employees too much access to critical data — the list goes on and on.But there’s another mistake companies often make, simply because they don’t even know it’s a threat at all: exposing sensitive information to Google “dorking.”Google dorking, or Google hacking, is one way malicious hackers can gain access to valuable information about a company. It involves using advanced commands in Google to find specific data sets that companies, as well as government agencies, have unwittingly made accessible by storing them on public-facing web servers.These files aren’t easily found by the average person, however, anyone who knows how to perform a specialized web search can retrieve them in a matter of minutes. The type of information exposed to this type of search can include user logins and passwords, email lists, employer identification numbers (EIN), bank accounts, software settings, etc.Exposing this information is dangerous, because it can pave the way for phishing email attacks, network breaches, financial fraud and much more. In fact, many sophisticated phishing campaigns rely on this type of open-source intelligence to create customized, highly convincing emails for targeted employees and executives. The threat is so severe the Department of Homeland Security issued an alert last year to law enforcement and public safety agencies, warning them about the potential risk of data breaches specifically due to Google dorking.Related: 5 Tips to Protect Your Business From HackersSo, how does a company become vulnerable to this threat?It essentially boils down to having sensitive files stored on a public web server, but that can happen in a few different ways.First, a company could be storing this data on its own web architecture to make it easy to access or share these files within the company, as well as with its clients or vendors. However, the reverse is also true — a company’s clients or vendors could upload its information to share or access more easily. There’s also the risk that executives or employees will store company files on third party sites with weak security. Lastly, federal, state and local government agencies routinely collect corporate data like tax IDs, which are often stored online in spreadsheet files.Because a company’s private data is often housed by multiple parties, it’s impossible to eliminate this risk entirely. However, businesses can take a number of steps to significantly lower the damage potential.1. Remove all sensitive information.Every business should start by asking itself two key questions: which information is too valuable or risky to disclose to the public, and does any of that data really have to be stored through its website (i.e., on a public web server)?Examples may include personnel files, customer profiles, financial records, etc. Sensitive files like this should never be stored through the website unless it’s absolutely essential for business operations. It’s far safer to store them separately on a private, encrypted server.Related: These 5 Companies Are Growing as Large as the Online Security Threat2. Protect data that can’t be moved.If a company has to keep sensitive data on its website, there are two ways it can protect it: encrypt it (require a login and passcode to access the data) and make sure the site is configured with robots.txt files to block web crawlers like Googlebot from indexing the data in public searches.This, however, is a less secure solution than the one mentioned in No. 1, so think carefully about the risks versus benefits before going ahead.3. Check the company’s online footprint.Do a routine check to see if the company has critical data exposed on the web.Here’s a simple way to do this: (a) Go to Google.com, (b) type in “site:COMPANY.COM filetype:xls”; (c) see if this pulls up any sensitive information; and (d) repeat the same command for DOC, PDF, PPT and other file types the company in question may use.4. Remediate exposed data.If private corporate information is found to be accessible on the web, use Google’s Webmaster tools to remove it from the cache.However, if third parties are responsible for the accidental disclosure, notify them immediately and request the information be pulled from the Internet, servers and Google’s cache.Related: How Much Do Data Breaches Cost Big Companies?
