New Brochures from BMAPA

first_imgThe British Marine Aggregate Producers Association (BMAPA) has been working on a series of regional brochures to describe the geological evolution of local coastlines, the geological origins of the offshore sand and gravel resources that are being dredged and the influence of the modern day waves and tides on both these deposits and the coastline.Mark Russell, Director BMAPA, said, “With the growing influence of climate change and extreme weather events, the profile and awareness of local coastal change has never been higher. This can sometimes lead to the view that such changes are somehow being influenced by the extraction of marine sand and gravel, despite the fact that dredging takes place in licensed areas well offshore and there are no physical processes that link it to the natural erosion of the coastline that has been occurring since prehistory.”“Rather than representing a threat to coastlines, the marine aggregate sector plays a key strategic role responding to the challenges of natural coastal change by supplying sand and gravel to large scale coast defense and beach replenishment projects, with over 38 million tonnes being used for this purpose since 1990. Given the dual challenges presented by sea level rise and increased storminess, the use of marine sand and gravel for coast protection purposes is likely to become increasingly important – a fact recognized by both the Marine Policy Statement and the developing marine planning process.”Information is also provided about the scale of marine aggregate dredging that is taking place, how the activity is assessed, regulated and monitored and how similar activities are controlled in other European countries.In preparing these brochures, BMAPA and The Crown Estate liaised closely with representatives of the Local Government Association Coastal Special Interest Group (LGA Coastal SIG).Half the construction aggregates currently being used in London come from marine sources. With on average three 5,000 tonne cargoes a day being landed at wharves along the Thames river.More Infolast_img read more

More than 1 billion Yahoo accounts hacked

first_img Author: Associated Press Do you see a typo or an error? Let us know. SHARE NEW YORK (AP) – Yahoo says it believes hackers stole data from more than one billion user accounts in August 2013, in what is thought to be the largest data breach at an email provider.The Sunnyvale, California, company was also home to what’s now most likely the second largest hack in history, one that exposed 500 million Yahoo accounts . The company disclosed that breach in September. Yahoo said it hasn’t identified the intrusion associated with this theft.Yahoo says the information stolen may include names, email addresses, phone numbers, birthdates and security questions and answers. The company says it believes bank-account information and payment-card data were not affected.But the company said hackers may have also stolen passwords from the affected accounts. Technically, those passwords should be secure; Yahoo said they were scrambled twice – once by encryption and once by another technique called hashing. But hackers have become adept at cracking secured passwords by assembling huge dictionaries of similarly scrambled phrases and matching them against stolen password databases.That could mean trouble for any users who reused their Yahoo password for other online accounts.QUESTIONS FOR VERIZONThe new hack revelation raises fresh questions about Verizon’s $4.8 billion proposed acquisition of Yahoo, and whether the big mobile carrier will seek to modify or abandon its bid. If the hacks cause a user backlash against Yahoo, the company’s services wouldn’t be as valuable to Verizon. The telecom giant wants Yahoo and its many users to help it build a digital ad business.In a statement, Verizon said that it will evaluate the situation as Yahoo investigates and will review the “new development before reaching any final conclusions.” Spokesman Bob Varettoni declined to answer further questions.Yahoo said Wednesday that it is requiring users to change their passwords and invalidating security questions so they can’t be used to hack into accounts.center_img More than 1 billion Yahoo accounts hacked Published: December 14, 2016 5:11 PM EST Updated: December 14, 2016 6:07 PM EST last_img read more

CoA backs compromise of privilege in death-threat case

first_imgA man detained under the Mental Health Act for attempted murder and who had threatened to kill his solicitor had no right to be left alone with lawyers when on trial for a further attempted murder, the Court of Appeal has ruled. In Regina v Edward Brown (formerly Latham) the court heard an appeal against a conviction on the grounds of a Crown court ruling that the defendant’s conferences with his lawyers be conducted in the presence of two nurses. Brown was sentenced to life imprisonment for the attempted murder of a fellow patient at Rampton hospital in Nottinghamshire, where he was already serving life sentences for attempted murder, with a weapon fashioned from a radio aerial.  The judge in the case had ruled that, as there were no facilities at court to screen defence counsel from their clients, Brown, described as an ‘exceptionally dangerous individual’, must be shackled to a minimum of two nurses when in direct personal contact with a third party.Brown’s appeal argued that the ruling breached his right at common law to consult privately with his lawyers and his ‘fair trial’ right under article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights.  Dismissing the appeal, the Rt Hon Lord Justice Fulford, the Honourable Mr Justice Holroyd and the Honourable Mr Justice Singh ruled that the inviolable nature of legal professional privilege does not apply if communications are used for an improper purpose – in this case for the defendant to harm himself or his lawyers. The judgment also notes there was no suggestion that any misuse was made of overheard communications. ‘Nurses deployed to ensure that someone who is detained does not harm himself (or others) are not to be equated with investigating police officers,’ the judgment states. On the ECHR argument, the judges ruled that the right to confidential communications with lawyers is not absolute. ‘Instead, it can be restricted for good reason and one of those reasons is if the individual’s life is at risk.’Therestrictions on Brown ‘were a proportionate and appropriate response to the grave threat the appellant posed to himself and we do not accept that they rendered the proceedings unfair’.A Law Society spokesperson said: ‘This is an interesting decision in a narrow and rare set of circumstances. We will monitor how this judgment is interpreted. Legal professional privilege is a precious human right, tested and refined by centuries of common law.’last_img read more

Government support for Russian rolling stock manufacturers

first_imgRUSSIA: Details of government support for the rolling stock manufacturing industry were set out by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on February 9.Speaking at Tver Carriage Works during a conference on the prospects for the rolling stock industry, Medvedev said the government’s objective was to ensure the profitable production of modern, safe and innovative vehicles so that the sector which employs more than 200 000 people becomes an ‘economic growth point’.He has signed a directive approving a 7bn rouble government support programme for rolling stock builders in 2016. This bans operators from using life-expired vehicles, reimburses operators for the costs of procuring new vehicles, and provides subsidies for the development of innovative wagons. VAT on long-distance passenger services has been cut from 18% to 10%, with operators – primarily RZD’s Federal Passenger Co – required to spend the difference on the procurement of new stock. Innovative wagons will also receive a discount on empty mileage, reflecting their lower impact of the infrastructure.Medvedev said Russia’s economic downturn had brought a 37% decline in the rolling stock market last year. Stimulus measures supported contracts for the production of an additional 10 000 vehicles, with 1bn roubles in subsidies provided for technical modernisation and 1·5bn roubles to pay interest on working asset loans. A further 60bn roubles from the National Wealth Fund was invested in RZD bonds to support the procurement of locomotives, and this is to continue this year.Medvedev said the weakening rouble provides a significant incentive for rolling stock exports, which grew by almost two-thirds in 2015 with 1·4bn roubles of support provided. Loans are to be approved shortly to support a Metrowagonmash project for Hungary and the supply of Uralvagonzavod wagons to Iran and Kazakhstan.last_img read more
