Green charcoal to save forests

first_imgThe green charcoal will be made from agricultural waste such as the invasive typha weed. (Image: Wikipedia) An environmental NGO in northern Senegal is about to go to market with “green charcoal” – a household fuel produced from agricultural waste materials to replace wood and charcoal in cooking stoves.With Senegal’s trees disappearing, finding viable alternatives is a must. At least half the country’s 13-million people rely on wood and charcoal for household fuel, and 40% use petrol products like butane gas, according to the Ministry of Energy.“You need to cut down 5kg of wood to produce only 1kg of charcoal,” said Ibrahima Niang, an alternative household energies specialist at the energy ministry.“Less than 30 years ago, charcoal consumed in Dakar came from 70km away, from the Thiès region. Now you have to go 400km from Dakar to find forests.” Dakar is the capital of Senegal.According to the country’s Department of Water and Forestry, 40 000 hectares of forest are cut every year for fuel and other commercial uses.Deforestation is said to exacerbate soil erosion – already a considerable problem in parts of Senegal. The country is part of the Sahel, a region where erratic rainfall, land degradation and desertification are constant setbacks for a population largely dependent on agriculture and livestock.The “green charcoal” is produced by compressing agricultural waste, such as the invasive typha weed, into briquettes and then mechanically carbonising. The product has the look and feel of traditional charcoal and burns similarly.“The technology is efficient, effective and economical because we can produce a substitute for charcoal at half the price,” Guy Reinaud, director of Pro Natura International, the French NGO that has partnered with the Senegalese government on the green charcoal initiative. The project is based in Ross-Bethio, a town 300km north of Dakar in the Saint-Louis region.Environmental firms and governments have long been working to transform plants and natural waste materials into energy, such as water lilies in the Philippines.Tough sell or consumer demand?Despite the apparent advantages, marketing the green charcoal in Senegal is a challenge, according to Mireille Ehemba, specialist in alternative household fuels at the Programme for the Promotion of Rural Electrification and the Sustainable Supply of Domestic Fuels (Peracod), a joint Senegalese and German renewable energy initiative and another partner in the green charcoal project.  “We have not been able to penetrate the charcoal market in urban areas. People are very attached to charcoal,” said Ehemba. “Much more [education] is needed, including cooking demonstrations that explain how this new fuel works, if we want people to make the switch.”Not only buyers need to be convinced. Identifying distribution networks and responding to the needs of charcoal vendors are also major challenges, Ehemba said. For 1kg of green charcoal, a vendor makes a profit of 5 US cents (about 9 South African cents), whereas conventional charcoal brings in almost 20 cents (R1.80) per kilogram.“We must talk to producers to get them to increase the scale of their operation in order to increase the profit for vendors if this is to work,” Ehemba said.On the other hand, Senegalese consumers may be tempted to switch to the new product because it is the cheapest fuel. One kilogram of green charcoal sells for just 20 cents (R1.80), whereas traditional charcoal currently costs three times that. A 6-kg bottle of butane gas costs about $5 (R45.50).Fatou Camara from Ross-Bethio has tested the new fuel when cooking for her family of 10. “I can use 1kg of green charcoal and that will cook the dinner. It is cheaper than normal charcoal.”Camara said she used to use butane gas for cooking, but recurrent gas shortages pushed her to switch to green charcoal.In the past, butane gas was heavily subsidised and promoted by the government as an alternative to charcoal. But such measures are no longer sustainable, according to the energy ministry’s Niang. The government plans to phase out butane subsidies in July.Peracod’s Ehemba is concerned the move will put more pressure on Senegal’s forests as poorer households return to traditional fuels like charcoal.“It is now very important that we propose alternatives like improved stoves and bio-charcoal so that people have affordable ways to cook cleanly,” she said.ProNatura and the Senegalese government plan to turn the project into a profit-making venture called Green Charcoal Senegal that will produce up to 800 tons of the green fuel a year for sale in the Saint-Louis region.ProNatura will soon start a project in Mali, transforming cotton stems into green charcoal, and plans similar projects in Niger, Madagascar, China, India and Brazil.“It has global potential in terms of its adaptability to different local environments, and it uses local waste materials,” said Reinaud.Added the energy ministry’s Niang: “It is not possible to completely replace charcoal. But even if we can replace 10% or 15% that is good. It will preserve the forests.”Do you have queries or comments about this article?

OpenID Foundation Goes International: Big News in Japan

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… The OpenID Foundation announced the launch of its first international chapter today to big accolades in Japan. The creation of the Japanese OpenID chapter was participated in by a host of big web companies there and made the front page of Google News Japan. Giant social networking site Mixi also announced that it would soon support OpenID.OpenID Europe may become the next international chapter of the Foundation. See below for the presentation used to announce the Japanese chapter.David Recordon, Vice-Chair of the OpenID Foundation (pictured below), and Nat Sakimura of the Nomura Research Institute gave the following presentation today. Local organizations interested in starting other international chapters can refer to this page on the Foundation site.It will be interesting to see if major vendors in Japan are faster to accept inbound OpenID from other providers than vendors in the US. Either way, each announcement like today’s further validates the OpenID protocol and moves the conversation towards more advanced topics regarding user identity.

The Agony and Ecstasy of Mike Daisey

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting david strom Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… The story of Mike Daisey and Foxconn’s labor practices is a story of our times: what is truth and what is fiction, how workers at a Chinese factory that supplies many tech products are treated, and how we as Americans should feel about the people who make our iThings and other tech toys. Daisey is the monologist of the widely popular stage play, “The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs” that just finished a second run at New York’s Public Theater, one of my favorite venues. In the show, he describes the state of the Foxconn factory that he visited several years ago: the employment of underage workers, their long hours, a worker who is maimed, guards at the gates and other details. Turns out he didn’t really observe much of this, and took liberties with the facts. This all came undone when Ira Glass, the producer of “This American Life” radio program put Daisey on one of his shows in January, at about the same time that various news reports appeared in the New York Times and elsewhere about Chinese tech labor abuses. Glass is one of my heroes: I have seen him live do a stage version of how he puts together his show, and I am an avid listener too. He was uncomfortable with Daisey’s portrayal and when one of radio colleagues who covers China raised red flags, he dug deeper. So deep that he ended up retracting much of what Daisey stated as “fact” in a radio show broadcast last week. I believe this is the first such time that Glass has done this in many years on the air and with producing hundreds of broadcasts. It is an extraordinary piece of radio.The hour-long broadcast is at times painful to listen to but shows the efforts that Glass and his staff had to go through to get at exactly what happened, and what is happening at Foxconn. Daisey squirms and evades direct questions. He posits that there are two levels of factual accuracy: one for journalists and one for the theater. He apologizes to Glass, but only for allowing his work to be aired on a news show, not for lying to his listeners. Daisey, on his blog, states in his defense about his monologue: “It uses a combination of fact, memoir, and dramatic license to tell its story, and I believe it does so with integrity….What I do is not journalism. The tools of the theater are not the same as the tools of journalism.”Well, let’s just say that I have a different definition of integrity than Daisey does. When I write my stories that you read, I try to make sure that I have accurate information ALL THE TIME. To me, my veracity is a non-renewable resource: once it is gone, you the reader aren’t coming back. The whole Daisey dust-up is doubly ironic, since one of his earlier monologues was called Truth. It follows the fictional and nonfictional stories of James Frey. Frey, you might remember, was outed on Oprah as making up many of the elements in his own memoirs (and from which our lead icon was taken).But no matter whether what is and isn’t true, there is a bigger issue, and one that Glass gets to in the waning moments of his broadcast last week. How do we, as consumers of tech, feel about using products that are produced from less than humane working conditions? A hundred years ago or so, American factories employed underage workers (you can see the fine documentary photos of Lewis Hine here that brought this practice to an end), long hours, and unsafe working conditions. It is as if, as Glass says, that we have exported this time capsule to China. Daisey’s efforts and other actual news reports have shed some light on these practices, that much is true. And eventually Foxconn was motivated to raise their workers’ salaries, as the Times reported here last month. But that could be because of increased competition, not increased compassion. In the meantime, if you have the time, listen to Glass’ program. And think about these issues the next time you buy your tech gear. center_img Related Posts Tags:#Analysis#Apple#web 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

IAB Europe releases new GDPR consent framework for comment

first_img HomeDigital MarketingIAB Europe releases new GDPR consent framework for comment IAB Europe, in partnership with IAB Tech Lab, announced Thursday new technical specifications for its second iteration of the Transparency & Consent Framework (TCF v2.0), designed to facilitate GDPR and ePrivacy Directive compliance for ad tech vendors.The new specifications are currently available for public comment over the next 30 days.Why we should care IAB Europe’s TCF offers companies a framework with which companies can manage GDPR-approved consent collection from users and site visitors. The new version takes into account feedback from publishers for more granular controls among the requests. With more explicit terms and practices outlined in TCF v2.0, publishers and vendors have access to deeper knowledge and control when collecting and managing personal data. The framework provides more intuitive solutions and resources so that publishers, tech vendors and advertisers can more easily meet the transparency and consent requirements of GDPR.Google, which has not signed on to the initial TCF, has that it would officially integrate this next version of the framework as a recognized TCF vendor after the release. The parties said they have been collaborating on the revision.“Google is actively contributing to the different TCF work-tracks, both on the IAB Europe and the IAB Tech Lab sides, and have said they will announce the timing of their integration once Version 2.0 of the TCF is out in the market,” Townsend Feehan, CEO of IAB Europe, told MarTech Today in February.We have reached out to Google for an update. In January, Google was hit with a 50 million euro penalty ($56.8 million) for not being transparent enough about the use of personal information and for not obtaining specific consent for ad-targeting purposes under GDPR.Key changes in TCF v2.0The updated framework is intended to provide consumers and publishers with more transparency and control over consenting to and collecting personal data, IAB Europe said. Key changes include:Extending the original purposes for processing personal data from five to twelve to provide more in-depth context.Users’ ability to expressly indicate the “right to object” to a vendor collecting and processing their data.Increased control in consenting to data processing, and how the vendors might use the data (including precise geolocation data).This story first appeared on MarTech Today.

Previewing the Second Half of Oklahoma State’s Schedule

first_imgThe Cowboys head to Lawrence, Kansas to face a Jayhawk team that will be outmatched and hasn’t won a conference game in nearly two years.There should be little concern for Cowboys fans as far as final results go. Kansas has beaten Oklahoma State once in the last 20 years, that team being the eventual Orange Bowl winner.But those days are far gone and this Jayhawk team should do well just to keep up with the Cowboys’ 15th-ranked scoring offense through the first quarter. But we’ve seen things get hairy up there in Lawrence in recent years.The Cowboys need to go up early and take control of the game. Silence those 22,000 fans (might be generous there) and allow your starters to rest and build confidence for your team heading into the last five games of the season.As we look past KU — exactly what the Cowboys can’t do — we see a Big 12 “murderer’s row” down the home-stretch of the season. Here’s why OSU can’t afford to make it a close game.West Virginia – HomecomingThe 12th-ranked Mountaineers have been playing lights-out and remain one of two unbeaten’s in the league and one of just eleven nation-wide. Dana’s squad is showing their defensive prowess as just held Texas Tech to 17 at home for the first time 45 years (that’s a ball-park estimation).At Kansas StateThe Wildcats are always a tough out at home. Oklahoma State has come home empty-handed their last two trips to the “Little Apple”, not winning there since 2010. Even at home, the Cowboys have only won the last two games by a combined six points.Texas TechWe know the Red Raiders can score and historically these have been shootouts. Oklahoma State will need to keep up with Tech’s offensive and play at least average on defense to pull this out. The last time OSU lost to the Red Raiders, Mike Leach still had a Lubbock address, but this game is in no way a “gimme”.At TCUThe Horned Frogs may have disappointed on the defensive front early but probably still deserve to be ranked in the Top 25. Their only losses are to current No. 17 Arkansas by three points and 16th ranked Oklahoma by six.As the second-leading Big 12 passer, Kenny “Trill”, continues to settle into his role TCU figures to be a very tough road game for the Cowboys by late November, maybe their toughest all year.At OklahomaOh my. Remember what just I said about TCU? This is going to be another tough one too. OU’s secondary got a little exposed early against the likes of Houston and Ohio State but unfortunately so did Oklahoma State’s.Whether the Cowboys are still in Big 12 contention or not, this will be the biggest game on the schedule for most and Mason Rudolph will look to continue his undefeated streak against OU …… Okay, his undefeated streak as a starter.

Justice Hill Chases Oklahoma State Freshman Rushing Records

first_imgJustice Hill is a star. He might be a superstar. Hill has 568 yards on 108 carries this season which is good for 5.3 yards per carry. In Big 12 games that number jumps to 5.6 yards per carry.His 568 rushing yards would have led last year’s team over the course of its 13-game season. Hill will almost certainly lead this year’s team in rushing and has a chance to set the all-time freshman record for yards in a season by a running back.Here’s where he ranks on that list currently.Mike Hamilton (961 yards)Jamaal Fobbs (928 yards)Thurman Thomas (843 yards)Andre Richardson (774 yards)Kendall Hunter (696 yards)Keith Toston (631 yards)Rafael Denson (569 yards)Justice Hill (565 yards)Hill is averaging about 20 carries a game. Let’s say he keeps on his 5.3 YPC pace (remember, he’s beating that right now in conference play). Over the course of six more games, he would end up with 1,201 yards.Whooooo boy.Oklahoma State’s last 1,200-yard rusher was Joe Randle who had 1,417 in 2012. He also had just over 1,200 in 2011. That was his sophomore and junior seasons though. What Hill is doing one year removed from playing for Booker T. Washington is remarkable.“I’ve been saying since he came in that he was the real deal and that he would have a really good season,” said sophomore receiver Jalen McCleskey who knows a few things about freshman success.“He’s done really well,” said Gundy. “Justice is still young. He was playing high school ball last year. He is exciting and can make guys miss. We have improved in that area, and that’s given us a chance to be successful up to this point. He’s growing up.”Yes he is. And he’s taunting record books. As my buddy Matt Amilian pointed out, if Hill stays all four years, nobody will have been better positioned than him to make a run at the all-time number of 4,847 set by Thurman Thomas from 194-1987.

Patrick Mahomes II Is The Real Deal

first_imgWATCH: Mahomes connects with Giles to complete Texas Tech’s 11th sub-two minute TD drive of the season! #WreckEm pic.twitter.com/uGRF7mOPDT— Texas Tech Football (@TexasTechFB) September 17, 2016With 982 yards through nine games and 12 scores, he’s having one of the best seasons for a receiver in Tech history. He leads the team with 60 catches and is one of the most productive receivers in the country (12th in receiving yards per game and 18th in receptions per game).He has four 100-yard games to his record so far this year and recently torched the OU secondary for 167 yards and two scores. Considered the best athlete on the team, it’s time for some Real Talk with Ramon: Look out for No. 9.Linebacker Jordyn Brooks, No. 20It’s rare when a true freshman, especially at middle linebacker, can step in from day one and adjust to the physicality of Power 5 football, but Jordyn Brooks has done just that. He leads the Red Raiders in tackles (61) and leads all freshmen nationally in solo tackles per game (4.7).From the same high school in Houston that produced Andrew Luck, Brooks stands at 6’1”, 235 pounds and packs a punch in the middle of the defense.Starting in all nine of Tech’s games so far and as a member of his high school’s 4×100 meter team, Brooks has speed to chase down quicker players. Turning down offers from SEC schools like Arkansas and Missouri, Kingsbury and Co. were sure glad the big instate schools didn’t come after him as they look to have him running the defense for years to come.Defensive Tackle Ondre Pipkins, No. 9When Captain Khaki took over at Michigan, change ensued and some players in the program were sent packing to make room for scholarships and you won’t hear Texas Tech complain.Former Army All-American defensive tackle Ondre Pipkins struggled with injuries throughout his time in Ann Arbor and decided to follow the tumbleweeds to west Texas where he found a warm welcome in Lubbock.We continue our series of senior features leading into Saturday’s Senior Day with defensive tackle Ondre Pipkins. #WreckEm pic.twitter.com/yOtzY0PEyn— Texas Tech Football (@TexasTechFB) October 31, 2016The senior nose guard weighs in at a whopping 325 pounds and while his stats aren’t eye popping (28 tackles, four tackles for loss), his presence looks to have tons of positive effect on those around him. You could possibly draw a straight line from the success of middle linebacker Jordyn Brooks to Pipkins, who often draws a couple of blockers.Another underrated benefit for Pipkins is his mentorship of talented defensive tackle Breiden Fehoko, a true sophomore that will be counted on for leadership in coming years. With Pipkins in the starting lineup this season, their rushing defense has improved by nearly 50 yards per game, down to 236 from 280 in 2015.

Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. We have looked at the amazing Texas Tech offense and the putrid Texas Tech defense. Now it’s time to look at some players on both sides of the ball who could make some noise on Saturday in Stillwater.Players to WatchWhen Texas Tech and Oklahoma State get together, there are more fireworks than a Grand Lake 4th of July, let’s take a peek at who some of the major players on the Tech side of the game will be on Saturday afternoon.Quarterback Pat Mahomes II, No. 5Kansas Defensive Coordinator Clint Bowen: “He’s a magician. You can tell your kids, but over and over on film you see it. Someone has him dead to rights for a sack and he does something to get away.”Long before Patrick Mahomes II set his sights on the record books in Lubbock, Texas, he was taking grounders with Alex Rodriguez and shagging balls for Cowboy great Robin Ventura, always in tow as he followed around his father, Patrick Mahomes I, an 11 year MLB veteran beloved by New York Mets fans for an 8-0 season in 1999 that helped get them to the NLCS.Patrick II looked bound for professional baseball from an early age, earning a trip to the Junior League World Series when he was 14.Mahomes excelled in baseball, basketball and football at Whitehouse, his pedigree and talent meriting calls from MLB teams and being picked in 37th round by the Detroit Tigers in 2014.It only took one half of a game for Kliff Kingsbury to know he had found his quarterback, the only he would offer in the 2013 class. Mahomes stayed true to Tech and turned down LSU and Notre Dame when they called late.Mahomes made his first appearance as a freshman in relief of injured starter Davis Webb on a late September night in Stillwater, some might remember as the best game Daxx Garman played in the orange and black but Mahomes went two for five with a touchdown and an interception to Cowboy linebacker Seth Jacobs.It’s safe to guess he’ll look a bit better when he comes back this weekend.Coach Gundy spoke reverentially of Mahomes this week saying he’s “a potential first round pick. He reminds me a lot of (Dallas Cowboy quarterback) Dak Prescott… Style of play, body, strength, speed, ability to run and throw in different positions.”Dak Mahomes leads the nation in passing yards (3,886), passing yards per game (431.8), offensive yards per game (460.7) and is second nationally in points responsible for as he averages 27.3 points per game off of 31 passing touchdowns and ten rushing touchdowns.And while the statistics are incredible, Kingsbury gushes about Mahomes’ will to win, saying it’s “second to none.”It’s hard to accuse Mahomes of not leaving it all on the field with a sore shoulder in a close loss to Oklahoma last month when he completed 52 of 88 attempts through the air for an NCAA record 734 yards passing.I’m no NFL scout, but I’d say coming out to see Mahomes mix it up against Mason would be worth the price of admission given the likelihood you’ll be watching at least one NFL quarterback, maybe two.Wide Receiver Jonathan Giles, No. 9Mahomes’ favorite target is the 5’11”, 185 pound receiver that has really turned it on after a slow freshman year. It’s hard to blame him, he was recruited by numerous FBS programs (Houston, Colorado, Indiana and more) to play quarterback like he did in high school.After a solid year of learning how to block and picking up the route trees, he’s really blossomed as a sophomore. He measures at 5’11” and 185 pounds with dazzling athleticism in the open field with an eye for the end zone.last_img read more

Watch: Chris Carson is a Man, Truck-Sticks TCU All Over The Place

Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. Senior Chris Carson continued his impressive late-year stretch with an impressive 19-yard touchdown run to give the Cowboys a 17-6 third-quarter lead on the road over TCU. Carson finished the day with 146 yards on 17 rushes and gave OSU two 100-yard rushers in the same game for the first time since 2013.He has averaged over seven yards a carry since returning against Kansas halfway through the season after an early injury. Over seven yards a carry! And he’s not even the starting RB. Runs like this are the reason why.With the Cowboys needing a first down to run out the clock, Carson put one last exclamation point on the win with the mean truck stick on two(!) different TCU defenders in one run. He’s making a habit out that lately. last_img read more
