Saab Grintek buys SA avionics firm

Posted on by

first_img8 December 2005Afro-Swedish firm Saab Grintek is buying Aerospace Monitoring and Systems (AMS) in a R30-million deal that will give South Africa’s avionics and defence industry increased global exposure while continuing Saab’s expansion into the South African and African markets.AMS, based in Midrand, Johannesburg, focuses on proprietary aircraft monitoring and recording systems for the global aerospace and defence market. The company boasts a turnover of R58-million, 95% of which is generated by exports – and employs 75 people.Saab Grintek, a partnership between Kunene Bros Holdings (29.7%) and Saab AB (70.3%), is a high technology group specialising in telecommunications and selected niche opportunities within industrial and defence electronics.On completion of the deal, AMS will be part of Saab Avitronics, a Saab business unit focusing on avionics and electronic warfare systems, which already has operations in both Sweden and South Africa.Saab Avitronics announced on Tuesday that it had signed an agreement to acquire AMS, adding that the acquisition, still subject to approval by the regulatory authorities, was likely to be effective by April 2006.“AMS’s product portfolio and markets fit very well into our avionics business,” Saab Avitronics president Bjorn Erman said in a statement. “Especially in the areas of safety, monitoring and digital recording systems, where together we will be a significant global player.”AMS CEO Christo Weder said his company was “excited about the excellent strategic fit between our products, markets and cultures, and [we] look forward to expanding our business under the Saab brand”.Like Saab Avitronics’ current electronic warfare operations in South Africa, AMS will, from a legal point of view, be part of Saab Grintek Defence (Pty) Ltd, which is jointly owned by Saab Grintek (Pty) Ltd and Saab AB.Saab is one of the world’s leading high technology companies, with its main operations focusing on defense, aviation and space.SouthAfrica.info reporterlast_img read more

U.P. civic polls begin on November 22

Posted on by

first_imgThe BJP has fielded the highest number of ‘crorepatis’ in the 2017 Uttar Pradesh urban body election, according to data analysed by an NGO. It also had the highest number of candidates with criminal record.Voting for 452 municipal posts, including 16 Mayoral posts, will be held in three phases starting November 22. Counting will be on December 1.The data on assets were compiled by Election Watch of the Association for Democratic Reforms, which analyses elections and builds public awareness. Four out of 14, or 29%, of the BJP’s mayoral candidates in U.P. have criminal cases against them. The BSP comes a close second with 21%, or three out of 14 candidates. The SP and the Congress shared the third position among the major parties: 13% of their Mayor candidates have criminal records. The AAP has only one such candidate.Overall, 20 of the 195 candidates across U.P. for the Mayor posts have criminal records against them, 17 of them of a serious nature. Chaudhary Basheer, an independent candidate from Agra, topped the table with six criminal cases under his belt.None of the candidates in Lucknow, reserved for women this time, has a criminal background.The BJP shared the honours for candidates with the highest declared assets with the BSP. Seventy-nine percent of the candidates fielded by the BJP and BSP are crorepatis. It is 73% in the case of SP and the Congress.Overall, across U.P., 70 out of 195, or 38% of the candidates, are declared crorepatis. Navin Kumar Jain, the BJP candidate in Agra, was by far the richest with assets worth ₹409 crore, followed by his party colleague Abhilasha Gupta from Allahabad who declared ₹58 crore. Brijendra Vyas Damdam Maharaj, the BSP nominee in Jhansi, was the third richest with assets worth ₹37 crore.Anil Sharma, coordinator, U.P. Election Watch, said while there was the usual display of money power in the municipal polls, which include Nagar Palika Parishads and Nagar Panchayats, some candidates resorted to innovative ways to escape the radar of the Election Commission. If a candidate was distributing biryani in Jhansi, another in Gorakhpur was giving out free footballs. In Moradabad, a candidate tried to lure voters by distributing brass items, while in Lucknow, a candidate gifted wall clocks in his ward. In Ambedkarnagar, the ADR found, candidates were distributing free biryani and liquor.A good signThe Election Watch also observed that voters this year seemed to consider the credentials of the candidate, instead of merely focusing on party affiliations. “People have shown a tendency to back good candidates. It is a good sign,” said Sanjay Singh, coordinator of the Election Watch. But how did he come to this conclusion? “It was based on a focused group discussion involving 500 people,” he said.last_img read more

Whenever you have a talent, you want them to stay in that bubble as that talent. All you want to see them do is play basketball or play football. People are human beings, they have feelings. It’s good to see athletes use their platform and following to educate to the best of their knowledge and talk about things that is a problem. I want to see more of it,” he said.“The only thing I say is you’re an athlete and you do that, educate yourself on what you’re talking about. If you want to go out there and be vocal, be sure that you’re educated enough to talk about these things and answer the questions.”ADVERTISEMENT Old habits die hard and Caron Butler knows that well.One year removed from the NBA, but he still can’t shake off his straw-chewing routine.ADVERTISEMENT Trump signs bills in support of Hong Kong protesters Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Celebrity chef Gary Rhodes dies at 59 with wife by his side Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Arsenal secure comeback victory over Manchester City in WSL

Posted on by

first_imgArsenal recovered from going a goal down to beat Manchester City 2-1 thanks to strikes from Beth Mead and Danielle van de Donk in Alex Scott’s final home game for the club.The hosts were almost ahead in the eighth minute when Jordan Nobbs controlled the ball 20 yards out and struck a powerful half-volley but Karen Bardsley in the City goal reacted to palm it over. Share on LinkedIn Striker Charlie Wellings scored two of City’s goals, the first a superb dipping shot from 30 yards out in the 20th minute and the second arriving after half-time when she stabbed home a low effort from just outside the area. Wellings had other chances throughout a one-sided match but it was England star Ellen White who completed the rout with another magnificent long-range goal. The result sees Birmingham leapfrog Everton’s rivals Liverpool in fifth place.Winless Yeovil Town were once again defeated despite holding out for 62 minutes before Lauren Hemp and Yana Daniels scored to give Bristol City a 2-0 victory.

Nobbs then brought the best out of Bardsley once more when she fired a shot from the right-hand edge of the area across the goalkeeper but she was once again spurned by strong arm which diverted the ball wide.After the break Arsenal quickly took control of the match as Nobbs laid the ball into the path of Van de Donk who maintained calm before precisely directing her shot into the bottom corner from 18 yards. The Dutch international then ran to embrace her soon-to-be retiring team-mate Scott on the bench.In the 62nd minute the comeback was completed as Kim Little dissected the defence with a pass which looked like it had missed its original target but Mead broke between opposition players to then hit a shot beyond Bardsley from an acute angle. Mead was another who shared her moment of joy with Scott on the touchline, a sign of how much the defender means to the squad after originally joining the club in 1992.City should have shared the points but substitute Izzy Christiansen failed to convert a cross from the right-wing despite being five yards out and unmarked, instead sending her header wide of the goal.Scott was sent on for the final moments of the game, much to the home support’s delight, and they celebrate once again when the whistle went as they held on.Everton were dispatched 3-0 by Birmingham City Ladies at Marine Travel Arena in a disappointing final home game in Division One of the Women’s Super League Season.

Researchers outline roles and impacts of human in socioecological systems

Posted on by

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Feb 18 2019In two back-to-back symposia at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington, D.C., on Sunday, Feb. 17 at 1:30 and 3:30 PM respectively, a cross-disciplinary cohort of scientists will present the first comprehensive investigations of how humans interacted with plant and animal species in different cultures worldwide through time. By compiling and comparing detailed data from pre-industrial and modern societies, the researchers are sketching a picture of humans’ roles and impacts in sustainable and unsustainable socio-ecological systems.”Almost all food webs that have been compiled and studied have been put together without including humans,” says Jennifer Dunne (Santa Fe Institute), an ecologist and complex systems scientist who is leading the project with archaeologist Stefani Crabtree (Santa Fe Institute and Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity). “It takes a lot of time and effort to put these kinds of detailed data together. So even though ecologists have been studying food webs for decades, we’re only now in a position where we can start to rigorously compare human roles and impacts across different systems to understand sustainability in new kinds of ways,” says Dunne.What do we learn when we do include humans?As part of her presentation during the second symposium, Dunne will reveal initial results from a comparison of food webs that explicitly include humans across several socioecological systems. Three are pre-industrial systems — the Aleutian Islands of Alaska, the Pueblo U.S. Southwest, and the Western Desert of Australia, and one is modern — the Tagus Estuary of Portugal. Given the diversity of cultures, ecologies, climates, and time periods represented in the data, Dunne suggests that we can start to learn “something more general about human roles in, and impacts on, ecosystems” by comparing these systems. For example, humans are often super-generalists compared to other predators — they feed on a huge variety of different species.In some systems, humans as super-generalist predators can fit into ecosystems without causing extinctions or major environmental degradation. For example, according to Dunne’s pioneering analysis published in Scientific Reports in 2016, the Sanak Island (Alaska) Aleut fed on a whopping 122 of 513 taxa in the nearshore marine ecosystem. However, like other predators, they switched from their favorite prey — sea lions — to shellfish, kelp, or whatever was readily available when the weather did not allow them to hunt in open water. “Prey-switching is very stabilizing for food webs,” Dunne explains, “because it allows prey taxa populations to recover from exploitation, as the predator’s focus shifts to other prey that are easier to forage or hunt given current conditions.” That, plus limited use of hunting technology and other factors helped to minimize potential negative impacts of humans on the Sanak ecosystem — during approximately 7,000 years of human habitation, there is no evidence for any long-term local extinctions.Related StoriesOlympus Europe and Cytosurge join hands to accelerate drug development, single cell researchSchwann cells capable of generating protective myelin over nerves finds researchScientists develop universal FACS-based approach to heterogenous cell sorting, propelling organoid researchHumans also stabilized the desert ecosystem of Western Australia, where Crabtree and Rebecca Bliege Bird (Pennsylvania State University) are examining how the Martu Aboriginal foragers are embedded in their surrounding ecosystems. According to Crabtree, Martu Aboriginal foragers stabilized their ecosystem by providing several ecosystem services such as lighting small brush fires to expose the burrows of small prey. The scorched patches left on the landscape served as natural fire breaks against larger, more devastating wildfires. When the Martu were removed from their homeland in the mid-20th century, wildfires increased dramatically in size, and several small mammals, like the Rufous Hare-wallaby, went extinct.Bird will present a newly published network analysis for the Aboriginal foragers during the first symposium, following Andrew Dugmore (University of Edinburgh) and George Hambrecht’s (University of Maryland) presentation of how Norse people in Iceland and Greenland used governance to mitigate anthropogenic degradation of the ecosystem.Just as humans can have a stabilizing effect on their ecosystems, they can also play a destructive role. In the first symposium, archaeologist Jennifer Kahn (College of William and Mary) will present her ongoing historical analysis of the French Polynesian islands, including two cases where human interactions with their surroundings led to markedly different outcomes — both for the ecosystems and the societies embedded within them.Crabtree, in the second symposium, will present her analysis of the 700-year trajectory of the Ancestral Pueblo people in the Southwest U.S., and the extent to which human interactions with the ecosystem eventually led them to depopulate the region.Iain McKechnie (University of Victoria and Hakai Institute) will then present anthropological and archaeological data that illustrates the resilience of the indigenous peoples of the North American Northwest Coast as they interacted with both marine and terrestrial species.In the final talk, Dunne will cross-compare these and other systems and synthesize what we know, so far, about humanity’s roles across ecosystems and time periods. In addition to presenting new results about human roles in food webs, she will also discuss new work that moves beyond feeding interactions to consider the myriad ways that humans interact with biodiversity in both simple and complex ways, for example by using species for medicine, shelter, tools, clothing, fuel, ritual purposes, and trade.”Understanding ecosystems with humans as part of them is essential,” Crabtree says. “We’re not going anywhere. We are here to stay. We are going to keep impacting ecosystems, and we need to understand the ways that our impacts can lead to more sustainable and resilient systems.” Source:https://www.santafe.edu/last_img read more

Study uncovers details about human immune response to dengue infection

Posted on by

first_img Source:https://www.med.uvm.edu/ Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Mar 29 2019About 40 percent of the global population is at risk for contracting dengue – the most important mosquito-borne viral infection and a close “cousin” of the Zika virus – and yet, no effective treatment or safe licensed vaccine exists. But a new study, reported recently in the Lancet’s open-access journal EBioMedicine, has uncovered details about the human immune response to infection with dengue that could provide much-needed help to the evaluation of dengue vaccine formulations and assist with advancing safe and effective candidate vaccines.Like Zika, yellow fever and West Nile viruses, dengue belongs to a group of mosquito-borne viruses that circulate in many tropical countries. However, without effective treatment and a safe licensed vaccine, dengue infection can lead to debilitating illnesses, including severe pain and hemorrhagic fever. One of the challenges of dengue infection is that it can be caused by one of four versions – or serotypes – of the virus, which are numbered dengue 1 to 4. Infection by one serotype typically results in long-term protection specific to that serotype. However, a later exposure to a different serotype can result in more severe disease. Experts believe this phenomenon occurs due to a part of the immune response, the antibodies, which may recognize and promote the second infection rather than defeat it.”Trying to tease out the protective immune response in naturally infected patients is a challenge, since people living in high-risk areas likely have been exposed to multiple serotypes of the virus, which confound the observation,” said senior study author Sean Diehl, Ph.D., an assistant professor of microbiology and molecular genetics at the University of Vermont’s (UVM) Vaccine Testing Center and Center for Translational Global Infectious Disease Research. “In our model, we controlled the infection for safety reasons and the participants were monitored for six months in order to understand the biological changes that occur following the infection.”Related StoriesCommon cold virus strain could be a breakthrough in bladder cancer treatmentAn injection of nanoparticles for spinal cord injuriesScripps CHAVD wins $129 million NIH grant to advance new HIV vaccine approachOver a six-month period, Diehl and his colleagues tracked the immune response and measured its different aspects, from the levels of certain immune blood cells to the levels of antibodies they produce and how these antibodies can recognize different dengue serotypes. In this study, co-led by Huy Tu, a fifth-year Ph.D. candidate in UVM’s Cellular and Molecular Biomedical Sciences program, the group defined the evolution of the antibody response in dengue infection in a controlled human model where subjects were treated with a weakened version of the virus.The research showed that the study participants developed an antibody response against the virus as early as two weeks after the infection. This immune response was highly focused against the infecting serotype, neutralized the virus, and persisted for months afterwards. With a comprehensive approach, the study dissected the antibody response at the single-cell level resolution, mapped the interaction between human antibodies to structural components on the virus’s surface, and connected the functional features of the response during acute infection to time points past recovery.last_img read more

Russian regulator moves to block Telegram messaging app

Posted on by

Explore further Russia’s telecoms watchdog on Friday asked a Moscow court to block the popular messaging app Telegram after the expiry of a deadline for it to give the state security services access to private conversations. Telegram must give FSB encryption keys: Russian court © 2018 AFP Citation: Russian regulator moves to block Telegram messaging app (2018, April 6) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-04-russian-block-telegram-messaging-app.html The lawsuit is the latest move in an ongoing battle between authorities and Telegram, which has a reputation for secure communications, as Moscow pushes to increase surveillance of internet activities.Roskomnadzor said in a statement it had filed a suit “demanding the limiting of access on Russian territory” to the service.But a lawyer representing Telegram said any ban would be unconstitutional and in any case impossible to enforce.”The position of Telegram remains the same—the demands of the FSB (security service) to provide access to private conversations of users are unconstitutional, not based on the law, and cannot be fulfilled technically and legally,” said Pavel Chikov, who leads a human rights group representing the app.Telegram’s self-exiled Russian founder Pavel Durov has long said he would reject any attempt by the country’s security services to gain backdoor access.The free application, which lets people exchange messages, photos and videos in groups of up to 5,000 people, has attracted some 200 million users since its launch in 2013.President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov on Friday said the service was a convenient tool to communicate with journalists and it would be a “shame” if an agreement between the app and authorities could not be reached.”But the law is the law,” he added during a regular briefing, quoted by Interfax news agency.Telegram is popular among political activists of all stripes, but has also been used by jihadists.”In Russia we have many problems—from poverty to awful state of the roads, from crime to poor medical care,” opposition leader Alexei Navalny said via Twitter. “But the state is engaged in blocking Telegram in our name …in what way is Telegram making life in Russia any worse? Whom is it bothering?” he said.In September 2017 the FSB demanded the encryption keys, Durov said, prompting a formal complaint when the request was rejected.The Roskomnadzor had threatened to ban the app in June last year for failing to provide its registration documents. Although Telegram later registered, it stopped short of agreeing to the regulator’s data storage demands. Companies on the register must provide the FSB with information on user interactions. From this year they must also store all the data of Russian users inside the country, according to controversial anti-terror legislation passed in 2016 which was decried by internet companies and the opposition.
