Interview: Kenya mining sector review
Kenya is working to position herself as a more efficient destination for mining investment. A new Mining Act came into force in 2016, replacing mining legislation from 1940. However, it left controversial royalty rates enacted in 2013, firmly in place. One of the law's key features, is a split of revenues from mining royalties, among various governments, and communities in which the mines are located. CGTN's Ramah Nyang earlier spoke to Kenya's Cabinet Secretary in charge of Mining Dan Kazungu, for an update on the law's implementation.

Sustainability Issues & Responses of the Mining Industry in Australia: Dr Dilhani Kapu Arachchilage
Dr Dilhani Kapu Arachchilage, from the School of Accounting, Finance and Economics at Edith Cowan University (ECU), presents her research "Key Contemporary Sustainability Issues and the Diversity of Responses of the Mining Industry in Australia" in ECU's 2012 Your Research In a Nutshell Competition. Dr Arachchilage's research focuses on sustainability development, which is a contemporary concept. She discusses research she undertook with ECU's School of Management. She discusses the popular definition for sustainable development, defined by the World Commission on Economic Development ~1987 as 'sustainable development is simply about meeting the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of meeting the needs of future generations.' Dr Arachchilage sees sustainable development as an important issue as far as intra-generational equity is concerned and also as far as inter-generational equity is concerned. Dr Arachchilage's research looked at the 3 spheres identified as the key areas of sustainability development: environment, society and economy; supported by evidence in triple bottom line reporting (3BL) reporting and in GRI Initiative. Her study analysed 8 multinational companies who operate in Australia on the basis of 13 criteria across those 3 key spheres: - Environmental Performance: Biodiversity & Land Stewardship, Climate Change, Water Management - Social: Work & Community Safety, Stakeholder Engagement, HIV AIDS Reduction, Policies for Mine Lifecycle, Human Rights, Community Development - Economic: Supply Chain Management, Transparency & Accountability, External Performance Management, Sector Specific Global Initiatives For each criteria, Dr Arachchilage selected a number of indicators. As a result, her study examined about 67 indicators communicated in self reported sustainability reports, annual reports, media reports. Dr Arachchilage found that companies have selected different legitimation strategies in order to achieve social legitimacy and demonstrate they adhere to the social contract. While there were differences, there were 3 key legitimation strategies used by the multinational organisations she studied: - Disclosure of improvement - Alter public perception - Divert attention from issues and negative reports in the media For more information on Dr Dilhani Kapu Arachchilage see http://www.ecu.edu.au/schools/accounting-finance-economics/staff/profiles/faculty-research-scholar/dr-nirosha-dilhani-kapu-arachchilage ECU's Your Research in a Nutshell Competition is open to "early career" researchers at ECU. Participants present on their research, with presentations limited to 5 minutes/less, using only 3 presentation slides.

Outrage Causes Hazard Perception: Peter Sandman on Risk Communication
This clip is a brief excerpt (11:37) from a two-day seminar I gave in 2010 for the Rio Tinto mining company. The excerpt explains that it's a mistake to think people get upset about a risk because they think it's dangerous. It's much truer that people think a risk is dangerous because they're upset. In my terms, outrage causes hazard perception -- whether the issue is a public meeting about factory emissions or a quarrel with your spouse. A much longer clip explaining the relationships among hazard, outrage, and hazard perception is available on Vimeo at http://vimeo.com/18611416. I'm posting this excerpt on YouTube almost as an advertisement. I'd really rather people watched the longer version. Links to all my clips from this Rio Tinto training (as well as other audio and video resources) can be found on my website at http://www.psandman.com/media.htm. The Rio Tinto clips add up to a free online course on my approach to risk communication and especially to low-hazard high-outrage risk communication, which I call "outrage management." --Peter Sandman

Balances the natural splendors of Sugar Loaf Mountain and Guanabara Bay with a railroad tunnel skyscraper, the Rio Philharmonic Orchestra, night clubs, and modern schools of research. Depicts finally the omnipresence of religion among the people as symbolized by the statue of Christ overlooking the city.' Originally a public domain film, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rio_de_Janeiro Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ Rio de Janeiro (/ˈriːoʊ di ʒəˈnɛəroʊ, - deɪ -, - də -/; Portuguese: [ˈʁi.u d(ʒi) ʒɐˈne(j)ɾu]; River of January), or simply Rio, is anchor to the Rio de Janeiro metropolitan area and the second-most populous municipality in Brazil and the sixth-most populous in the Americas. Rio de Janeiro is the capital of the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil's third-most populous state. Part of the city has been designated as a World Heritage Site, named "Rio de Janeiro: Carioca Landscapes between the Mountain and the Sea", by UNESCO on 1 July 2012 as a Cultural Landscape. Founded in 1565 by the Portuguese, the city was initially the seat of the Captaincy of Rio de Janeiro, a domain of the Portuguese Empire. Later, in 1763, it became the capital of the State of Brazil, a state of the Portuguese Empire. In 1808, when the Portuguese Royal Court transferred itself from Portugal to Brazil, Rio de Janeiro became the chosen seat of the court of Queen Maria I of Portugal, who subsequently, in 1815, under the leadership of her son, the Prince Regent, and future King João VI of Portugal, raised Brazil to the dignity of a kingdom, within the United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil, and Algarves. Rio stayed the capital of the pluricontinental Lusitanian monarchy until 1822, when the War of Brazilian Independence began. This is one of the few instances in history that the capital of a colonising country officially shifted to a city in one of its colonies. Rio de Janeiro subsequently served as the capital of the independent monarchy, the Empire of Brazil, until 1889, and then the capital of a republican Brazil until 1960 when the capital was transferred to Brasília. Rio de Janeiro has the second largest municipal GDP in the country, and 30th largest in the world in 2008, estimated at about R$343 billion (IBGE, 2008) (nearly US$201 billion). It is headquarters to Brazilian oil, mining, and telecommunications companies, including two of the country's major corporations – Petrobras and Vale – and Latin America's largest telemedia conglomerate, Grupo Globo. The home of many universities and institutes, it is the second-largest center of research and development in Brazil, accounting for 17% of national scientific output according to 2005 data. Despite the high perception of crime, the city has a lower incidence of crime than Northeast Brazil, but it is far more criminalized than the south region of Brazil, which is considered the safest in the country. Rio de Janeiro is one of the most visited cities in the Southern Hemisphere and is known for its natural settings, Carnival, samba, bossa nova, and balneario beaches such as Barra da Tijuca, Copacabana, Ipanema, and Leblon. In addition to the beaches, some of the most famous landmarks include the giant statue of Christ the Redeemer atop Corcovado mountain, named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World; Sugarloaf Mountain with its cable car; the Sambódromo (Sambadrome), a permanent grandstand-lined parade avenue which is used during Carnival; and Maracanã Stadium, one of the world's largest football stadiums. Rio de Janeiro was the host of the 2016 Summer Olympics and the 2016 Summer Paralympics, making the city the first South American and Portuguese-speaking city to ever host the events, and the third time the Olympics were held in a Southern Hemisphere city. The Maracanã Stadium held the finals of the 1950 and 2014 FIFA World Cups, the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup, and the XV Pan American Games...

'Life threat' issue raised by WRD Minister Vinod Palyekar is his perception, says Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar. CM Parrikar finally breaks his silence, over Palyekar’s statement. Life threat from drug mafias could be an illusion, he says. Parrikar speculates that it may be the drug dealers who want to compromise and Palyekar must have mistaken them and said police will look into the matter. It was seen that after the explosive statement of Palyekar, opposition lobby lashed out at Parrikar led government. www.prudentmedia.in #PrudentMediaGoa

Powering America: How a Nuclear Plant Works
The Fukushima nuclear reactor accident in March 2011 challenged the public's perception of nuclear power. However, much of this disillusionment simply stems from a lack of understanding of how a nuclear power plant functions. Watch the full documentary at http://www.poweringamericafilm.com
The beauty of conflict | Clair Canfield | TEDxUSU
For many, conflict is considered a negative experience and an indication that something has gone wrong. When viewed from that perspective it frequently creates interactions that leave us feeling frustrated and unsatisfied. In this talk, Clair identifies some of the ways we get stuck in the trap of justification and also provides hope for a new way of approaching conflict. This different approach unlocks the possibilities of conflict and empowers us to create the change we want in the world around us, in our relationships, places of work, communities, and most of all within ourselves. Clair Canfield is a consultant and lecturer at Utah State University with degrees in Communication Studies and a graduate certification in alternative dispute resolution. Initially inspired by his own struggles with conflict, Clair is committed to changing the way people think and feel about conflict. “Conflict holds up a mirror to our deepest needs and most cherished hope and it is the doorway of opportunity for creating the change we want in our life,” Clair stated. “It is common to feel trapped and stuck when we experience conflict, but there is a way out!” This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

JSGS Public Lecture~Saskatchewan First Nations and the Province's Resource Future
Presented by Chief Bellegarde, Chief of the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations Saskatchewan is in the middle of an unprecedented resource boom. With oil and gas in the south, potash in central Saskatchewan and uranium in the North, along with promising mineral plays in various locations,Saskatchewan's economy is growing rapidly. First Nations are determined to benefit from the boom, as Treaty Peoples with strong ties to the land and with promises from government that we will benefit from development. With duty to consult and accommodate requirements in place, Saskatchewan First Nations have become national leaders in working out appropriate collaboration and impact and benefit agreements with companies and governments. Much more can be done. More First Nations can be employed on the resource projects. Greater care can be taken to protect our traditional lands and protect our people from harm. There are important business opportunities for First Nations companies that remain to be developed. First Nations will not stand in the way of properly managed development that is based on consultations and agreements with our communities, but nor will First Nations agree to open-ended development strategies that do not return a fair share of the benefits from resource development with the Saskatchewan First Nations.

We want a robot’s ability to detect objects (e.g., pedestrians, cars, etc.) in its specific operating environment to evolve and improve over time. Our Experience Based Classification framework for robot perception builds on the well established practice of performing hard negative mining when training an object detector. Rather than stopping mining for data once a detector is trained, we continuously seek to learn from the detector’s mistakes during operation. This learning process is entirely self-supervised, facilitated by the fact that we have additional scene context at our disposal in robotics.
On U.S. public perception of Nuclear Power and addressing Global Warming in the near term
Addressing the public's understanding of nuclear power in the U.S. offers the most hope for addressing global warming in the near term. Since only nuclear power plants can cost effectively replace the steady power currently produced by coal burning power plants it is crucial that the U.S. begin replacing the 50% share of electric capacity currently provided by coal. Without gas, coal, or oil the French did this over 20 years ago. Today they have some of the cheapest electricity, cleanest air, and lowest CO2 emissions per capita in Europe. They also have high speed trains and energy security. Go Nuclear.

Predicting Instructor Performance Using Data Mining Techniques in Higher Education
Predicting Instructor Performance Using Data Mining Techniques in Higher Education -- Data mining applications are becoming a more common tool in understanding and solving educational and administrative problems in higher education. In general, research in educational mining focuses on modeling student's performance instead of instructors' performance. One of the common tools to evaluate instructors' performance is the course evaluation questionnaire to evaluate based on students' perception. In this paper, four different classication techniquesdecision tree algorithms, support vector machines, articial neural networks, and discriminant analysisare used to build classier models. Their performances are compared over a data set composed of responses of students to a real course evaluation questionnaire using accuracy, precision, recall, and specicity performance metrics. Although all the classier models show comparably high classication performances, C5.0 classier is the best with respect to accuracy, precision, and specicity. In addition, an analysis of the variable importance for each classier model is done. Accordingly, it is shown that many of the questions in the course evaluation questionnaire appear to be irrelevant. Furthermore, the analysis shows that the instructors' success based on the students' perception mainly depends on the interest of the students in the course. The ndings of this paper indicate the effectiveness and expressiveness of data mining models in course evaluation and higher education mining. Moreover, these ndings may be used to improve the measurement instruments. Articial neural networks, classication algorithms, decision trees, linear discriminant analysis, performance evaluation, support vector machines. -- For More Details Contact Us -- S.Venkatesan Arihant Techno Solutions Pudukkottai www.arihants.com Mobile: +91 75984 92789

Captain Amarinder, Sunil Jakhar ਨੂੰ ਮਹਿਲ ਬੁਲਾ ਕੇ ਕਰ ਗਿਆ ਬੁਰੀ । Sunil Jakhar ਗੁੱਸੇ 'ਚ । ਧੜੇਬਾਜ਼ੀ
Captain Amarinder vs Sunil Jakhar, party vs govt as MLAs fear Congress losing perception battle. Resentment brewing in party over govt silence on STF report, police transfers, growing perception of govt ‘favouring’ Akalis; delay in cabinet expansion keeps lid on simmering discontent. Punjab Congress chief Sunil Jakhar walking out of CM Captain Amarinder Singh’s office on Wednesday in a huff has exposed the growing wedge between the party and government in the state. Though Jakhar did not skip the party’s function to distribute debt waiver certificates to farmers in Sangrur on Thursday, the two did not meet, as the CM gave it a miss. A party MLA said it was the third time in the recent past that the CM had not met Jakhar after scheduling an appointment. Jakhar left not because of being told by the security staff to leave his mobile phone outside, but a feeling that the delay in meeting was deliberate after he reached at the time that Amarinder’s OSD had allotted,” the MLA said, requesting anonymity. Jakhar had sought time to voice growing resentment in the party over “public perception of government favouring the Akalis”. Last week’s police transfers were the latest provocation. Congress MLAs are questioning why MS Chinna has been removed as the Bathinda IG after being warned by name by SAD president Sukhbir Badal at his ‘Pol khol’ rallies. Sukhbir’s wife Harsimrat Kaur is the Bathinda MP, while his estranged nephew, Manpreet Badal, is MLA of Bathinda (Urban). Most Congressmen are also upset over the CM running his government “by proxy”, claiming that just a chosen few are in command and Amarinder is favouring them in the ongoing war of attrition. Some MLAs had also expressed anger over plum postings of cops who allegedly enjoyed close proximity to the previous dispensation. The appointment of Sukhchain Singh Gill as commissioner of Ludhiana, Naunihal Singh as IGP of Jalandhar Range and Ranbir Khatra as DIG of Ludhiana has not gone down well with them. Though the 40-odd Congress MLAs who had started a signature campaign to seek probe against former Akali minister Bikram Majithia have since gone silent, they are questioning that why is the government sitting over a report of the STF headed by ADGP Harpreet Sidhu submitted to the high court that said the Akali leader had a “role in supply of dugs to two Canadian NRIs. We have to contest elections next year. There is growing public perception that the Congress is just a dummy of the previous regime as they are still calling the shots. We have to think about our political careers too. How do we answer why our government is working at the behest of Akalis? We are losing the perception battle,” another MLA said. Most Congressmen are also upset over the CM running his government “by proxy”, claiming that just a chosen few are in command and Amarinder is favouring them in the ongoing war of attrition. In the power struggle within Punjab Police, Amarinder has shown that DGP Suresh Arora enjoys his confidence. Harpreet Sidhu has been placed under him and the government has also taken back the charge of ADGP of border region from him. The CM’s accessibility too remains a sore point in the party. Amarinder has kept party dissenters at bay by keeping the cabinet expansion carrot dangling for more than a year. The rumblings are likely to grow louder once the expansion takes place and dashes hopes of many. Captain Amarinder, Sunil Jakhar ਨੂੰ ਮਹਿਲ ਬੁਲਾ ਕੇ ਕਰ ਗਿਆ ਬੁਰੀ । Sunil Jakhar ਗੁੱਸੇ 'ਚ । ਧੜੇਬਾਜ਼ੀ

DELAYED POST - GO TO FRA CHANNEL FOR BREAKING RELEASES As part of the ongoing series of the Austrian School of economics, FRA co-founder Gordon T. Long deliberates with Alasdair Macleod, head of research at GoldMoney. Mr. Macleod began his career as a stockbroker in 1970 on the London Stock Exchange. Through experience he rapidly learned about things as diverse as mining shares and general economics, within nine years he had risen to become senior partner of his firm. “I want to destroy this business of printing money as the solution to everything.” Subsequently, he has held positions at director level in investment management, as a mutual fund manager, and also at a bank in Guernsey as an executive director. For most of his 40 years in the finance industry, he has been de-mystifying macro-economic events for his investing clients. From the accumulation of his experience he concluded that unsound monetary policies are the most destructive weapon governments’ use against people. Mr. Macleod strives to educate and inform the public in layman’s terms what governments do with money and how to protect themselves from the consequences. WHAT IS AUSTRIAN ECONOMICS “Prices are entirely subjective.” It began with Carl Menger who was one of the 3 economics who came up with marginal theory of prices. Where Menger differed from other two was that he appreciated that prices were purely subjective. You cannot forecast tomorrow’s prices because prices are determined by the consumer who always has the option to buy. “It overturns the cost theory of prices which is what Adam Smith believed in. It is completely irrelevant.” The law of the markets, the reason you and I work is we go out to earn something. We need to transform our skills into consumption. In a free market economy we have people who use their skills to earn money for consumption; the intermediary in this is money. Money is nothing more than the temporary storage of someone’s labour that is transferrable into goods. If you understand this you will see how unsound money is bad for an economy. The idea by printing money which runs a budget deficit that a government can generate economic growth is nonsense. “In regards to investing one thing that is desperately important to understand is that asset prices always refer back to their production.” This applies across every asset that you buy. If you see that the prices of assets have moved away from their underlining productive value then you know that you are in a bubble. A WORLD OF INFINITE CREDIT “The world post 1970’s is a completely different world from before the 1970s.” After 1981 rates had been lifted to a point which stopped the relationship between businesses and savers. This is what killed the price inflation up until the early 90s. Banks not only had the liberty to print credit but also to monopolize and control securities markets, if you combine these two thongs together; it is basically a money making machine, which is what we have today. The end point in credit comes from the logical conclusion of that development. At every cyclical peak the level of interest rates which collapse the economy gets lower. The reason it gets lower is because this combination of credit control in securities markets does nothing more than just pumps up the level of debt. The overhang of debt means the rise in interest rates to stop the economy from getting out of control is getting lower. You cannot raise interest rates by more than one or two percent without serious economic dislocation. NEGATIVE NOMINAL INTEREST RATES “The effect of negative interest rates would be to throw every commodity into backwardation.” There is no doubt that negative interest would drive up inflation, or rather, it would lower the purchasing power of said currency. Negative interest rates for the reserve currency in which all commodities are priced have a severe risk which will generate runaway inflation, but in fact it is a collapse. In order to make negative interest rates work you need to ban cash entirely. I have no doubt at all that that is the underlying reason why there is so much emphasis on anti-money laundering. THE FMQ CONCEPT “The fiat money quantity is the amount of money that would have to be redeemed for gold that once was deposited.” The fiat money quantity was put together to try to quantify the amount of money that Is being issued in return for the gold that we originally gave to our banks which the banks then handed to the federal reserve. The reason for doing this is to try to get an idea of how much money is not only in public circulation, but also not in public circulation and potentially in public circulation. From looking at the Feds balance sheet and considering other factors like repos and reverse repos, we see that the growth curve has taken off; and in the very broadest sense we have monetary hyperinflation.

This segment also includes Dan Ringer, the host of the "The Law Works" on West Virginia PBS, discussing the case.
Interview with Bjorn Stigson, former President WBCSD, at ThEC15 in Mumbai
More on Thorium at: http://www.thoriumenergyworld.com/ Watch Björn Stigson, Former President of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, talk about sustainability, thorium energy’s potential role in the world’s future energy mix, and public perception of nuclear in an interview conducted during the Thorium Energy Conference in Mumbai. Mr. Stigson has worked with energy and sustainable development issues for more than 25 years. ‘I think the world is clearly facing a situation where we will have to move to a low carbon economy. That has to happen in the context where we know that over the next 25 years we will increase energy demand by some 40 percent. So how do we then create an energy system that is not destroying the climate? We need to look at low carbon energy sources, and nuclear is one such energy source. Traditional nuclear is met with quite a lot of scepticism from the public - thorium represents potentially one of the new nuclear technologies that could have a higher degree of acceptability.’ ‘The challenge is that actually nuclear has been pretty safe but it is perceived by people to be out of their control. Compare it with smoking. Smoking is more lethal than nuclear but you decide yourself.’ explains Mr. Stigson the problem with nuclear. ‘We are faced with a perception problem and people are nervous about the risks. This is a very difficult issue in many countries and it is not easy for the governments to push for nuclear.’ he continues. The question then is, who will deliver the trust that nuclear is ok? In his speech, Mr. Stigson talked about different roles in society. ‘Government and business don’t have much trust with the public. The natural suppliers of trust are civil societies. Academia has trust but they are normally not good communicators. If we want to have more nuclear, we need to find a partnership between governments, business, academia and the civil society.’ Government's’ role should be that of creating the regulatory framework. Mr. Stigson does not believe in state-run enterprises anywhere. ‘I don’t think you can build a broad program and rely on state-owned companies to be efficient. What we see in other parts of the world, is that the energy system is owned by private enterprises.’ Mr. Stigson sees the potential in thorium energy and believes thorium technology is close to a breakthrough, based on the presentations in Mumbai. Having the technology accepted by the public is another thing. ‘I think that thorium energy has a clear potential. One has to really think about how to market that. If you make it sound like traditional old nuclear energy, it’s not going to fly. One has to re-brand it into something else, otherwise people won’t buy it.’

Morning Minute: Mining Educational Seminar
On January 24th, the Wisconsin Counties Association and the Wisconsin Towns Association educated local government officials on recent law changes surrounding the regulation of non-ferrous metallic mining in Wisconsin at Reuland's Conference Center in Minocqua, WI. Assistant professor at UW-Eau Claire, Dr. Robert Lodge, highlighted the environmental risks associated with mining, as well as improvements the industry has made. "I realize there is some controversy over the Flambeau reclamation project, but if you ever walked around this area, it's quite amazing what they've done for an old mine site. Reclamation is better, and for what it's worth, this has been a learning project as well," Dr. Lodge said. Watch the full program: https://shar.es/1Ni8ce
