Bahamas Environment Ministry Holds Seminar on Strengthening Nuclear Energy and Radiation Regulations

By on

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, October 31, 2017 – Nassau – The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Expert Mission to the Bahamas for Inventory of Radioactive Devices, Sources, and Radiation Equipment held a workshop for staff of the Ministry of the Environment and Housing and the Department of Environmental Health (DEHS) at the British Colonial Hilton, October 23-25, 2017.The IAEA is the United Nation’s agency charged with ensuring that radioactive and nuclear materials are secured and applied safely.The lecture for environmental health professionals on using nuclear materials for peaceful purposes officially opened on the Monday morning.  Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of the Environment and Housing, Janice Miller stated:  “The Bahamas became a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) during January 2014.  Since then we have been making incremental steps to establish a regulatory infrastructure for the safe and secure use of radioactive materials, including an independent regulatory body.“We are continuing to work with many of our partners including Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Bahamas Bureau of Standards, Ministry of Health, Health Facilities Council, Ministry of Works, Bahamas Customs Department, University of The Bahamas, Ministry of National Security, Attorney General’s Office and others, in order to achieve this objective.”Ms. Miller explained further that preliminary information suggests that radioactive technology is presently being used in The Bahamas in Medicine and Industry.“The activities of the IAEA experts and local team, for the next few days will assist in establishing and maintaining a national inventory of radiation sources, and by extension inform the process of our efforts in ultimately putting in place the appropriate regulation.  Of course the completion of this effort will have to be conducted by the local team, so funds will have to be accessed to make visits to the other islands,” said Ms. Miller.“In addition to other agencies being involved in training workshops, the Ministry of Environment and Housing is taking part in regional projects to begin building capacity in meeting the human and technical resource needs of all aspects of establishment of the needed regulatory infrastructure. The IAEA has been very helpful in this regard and will hopefully continue to give the necessary assistance.”Ms. Miller said that the proper legal framework is crucial to our country receiving full benefits as a member, and as a result, the Ministry of the Environment & Housing has prepared a Cabinet Paper for submission to Cabinet, so that we along with the Attorney General’s Office can officially begin drafting the regulations for the safe and secure use of radioactive material.“The salient components of the law will include, (1) Designation of regulatory body and functions (e.g. Authorization, Licensing, Inspection, Enforcement); (2) Radiation/nuclear protection and safety; (3) Safeguards; (4) Emergency preparedness and response; (5) Transportation of radioactive material; (6) Import/export; (7) Radioactive/nuclear waste/storage; and (8) Nuclear liabilities,” said Ms. Miller.“At each phase the IAEA will be consulted for guidance so that assurance is given that our obligations as a member, are met.   We along with The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Attorney General’s Office will also give attention to the various international instruments, conventions, codes and protocols, which will strengthen the international response to nuclear accidents by providing a mechanism for rapid information exchange in order to minimize trans-boundary radiological consequences.”Ms. Miller concluded with saying the Ministry believes that “being a part of key conventions will strengthen the international response to a nuclear accident or radiological emergency, including a terrorist or other malicious act, thus protecting life, property and the environment against the effects of radioactive releases.”“It is my sincere desire that the objectives of this workshop are met and that the meeting will encourage us to continue to work together toward the common goal of establishing a regulatory infrastructure for the safe and secure use of radioactive materials, in The Bahamas,” said Ms. Miller.By: Gena Gibbs (BIS)Photo caption:  Group photo of the IAEA lecturers and participants from various agencies throughout the government, including the Ministry of the Environment & Housing and the Department of Environmental Health (DEHS) at the workshop opening session of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Expert Mission to the Bahamas for Inventory of Radioactive Devices, Sources, and Radiation Equipment, October 23-25, 2017.(BIS Photo/Gena Gibbs) Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

Robertson praises David Bates ahead of debut

By on

first_imgScotland’s Andrew Robertson has heaped praises on David Bates ahead of his international debut with the team.The Hamburg defender is set to win his first cap in the heart of the Scotland defence, thanks to a large number of withdrawals from the team.Robertson has been impressed by the former Rangers Football Club defender, saying:“You don’t quite know how it will go on your debut but I think David can stand up and be counted,” he said according to Dail Mail.“He’s been really good in training. I remember watching him at Rangers and he’s come on a lot since he made the move to Hamburg.”“It’s up to the manager if he starts or not but, if he does, the more experienced lads will help him out and be positive.”Scotland’s Robertson hopes for a positive result against Belgium Manuel R. Medina – September 7, 2019 Scotland was defeated at home 2-1 by Russia in yesterday’s 2020 European Championship qualifiers, and the team is almost out of the race for a spot at the Euros.“Yes, it will be an inexperienced 11 due to circumstances, but I have confidence in the lads.”“Callum Paterson’s been doing well in the Premier League with Cardiff City and Ryan Fraser has the most assists in that league (with Bournemouth). The Celtic boys are all coming into international duty on a high.”“It can be hard to bring your own individual form from a club into a new team at international level but that’s what we’re aiming to do. Hopefull,y we can get the right result.”Meanwhile, Robertson admits the withdrawals have impacted Scotland’s preparation for UEFA Nations League games against Albania and Israel.“Of course it’s been a bit disruptive but we always plan with different team set-ups, and people are 100 per cent concentrated on what they are doing. These things happen and people will need to step up.”“We have to think that people will react well in adversity. I’m sure that will happen in Albania.”last_img read more

It will showcase varied aesthetics of ornaments across the class, gender and age of the wearer. Alamkara, which features a total of 255 jewels housed in 25 glass cases, will also throw light on techniques of moulding some of the ornaments integral to ancient, medieval and modern history. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’There are also exhibits showing the flora and fauna used in ornamentation, while there is a separate section on amulets. Overall, the attempt is to bring to light to some of the ornaments that have survived the times in different parts of the country. Union Minister of State for Culture and Tourism Shripad Yesso Naik will inaugurate the gallery that will give the visitors a peek into ornaments that bear the stamp of regal splendour as well as the ones used in common households.

NM Director-General Venu V said, ‘The comeback of the gallery was a long standing demand of   heritage lovers, as it was one of the most popular galleries.  The objects have now increased in number and also become better in quality. ‘The catalogue of spectacular objects includes hair ornaments, plaques, marriage pendants, armbands and belts. The ornaments at Alamkara are suggestive of the sense of beauty of the regal classes to common folk over the years’.last_img read more

Im now ready for Bollywood Mumtaz Sorcar

By on

first_imgAce magician PC Sorcar Junior’s youngest daughter, Mumtaz, who has appeared in 30 films in seven years, is a boxing freak. In fact, it is her love for this sport which has her pretty excited about her big release Guru. Another film scheduled to hit the theatres this May is a Bengali feature, Raktakarabi, based on Rabindranath Tagore’s dance drama. Mumtaz, who loves cooking and dancing when she is not shooting, is also working for two new Tamil films this year and says that she is now ready take up more roles in Bollywood. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfMumtaz, tell us about your first big release of 2017, Guru…. My first big release this year will be Guru, the Telugu remake of a hit Tamil film directed by Sudha Kongara, Irudhi Suttru. The Hindi version was the critically acclaimed Saala Khadoos. Guru is the story of two women boxers who are in fact sisters and the changing dynamics of their relationship. The coach is played by Venkatesh. The sisters come from a poor family and their father is a fishmonger. I’m playing the elder daughter, who gets into boxing because she wants to land a job in the Police force to support her family. The younger one is a natural wrestler and under a good coach, who even lands the World Cup. At one point, sibling rivalry separates the duo but they come together again. I am into boxing and so I could play the part since the whole film is about professional boxers. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveYou also have a big Bengali film to be released this year, Raktakarabi…. Yes, for the first time, Rabindranath Tagore’s ‘Raktakarabi’ will see a celluloid version. I play the role of Nandini but then it is a modern interpretation. The central character Nandini is a revolutionary, just as Tagore had conceived her but the times have changed. Raktakarabi is a political film, a reflection of our times. Bishu Pagol has been assayed by Kaushik Sen in Raktakarabi and the musical score has been done by Debojyoti Mishra. Raktakarabi’s most celebrated stage version was Bohurupee’s 1954 production, with lead characters played by the legendary Sambhu Mitra and Tripti Mitra. This is your second Amitava Bhattacharya film….Yes, last year, I assayed the very difficult role of Chitrangada in Bhattacharya’s maiden film, titled Conditions Apply. That film was based on the life story of Chitrangada, a eunuch whose true identity gets exposed and how society treats her after they get to know that she is not a woman. Chitrangada connects with herself but goes through a period of deep turmoil. In a way it is the most difficult role that I have assayed till date. The film was meant for the festival circuit. On Bollywood…There are offers. Recently, there was an offer for a commercial film but I wasn’t ready at that time. I wanted to be sure, to work on myself first. Now that I’m better than what I was and have some acting experience of working in different cities, I’ve matured as a human being. Most of these regional films gave me new units and different languages to deal with. I was the only Bengali there and I thought people expected something from me, as the representative of Bengali cinema. I’m now ready for Mumbai. You are known to be a workout addict, how do you relax?Right now, I’m taking physiotherapy because of a small back injury which I got while working for Saala Khadoos though I never stopped acting. At the moment, I’m not working out fervently. Otherwise, I exercise everyday under the guidance of coach Ranodeep Maitra. As for relaxing, we are one big happy family and we have a lot of fun when all of us – especially the three sisters – are together. We all have different careers and are busy during the whole day, but we usually get together for dinner and exchange notes. I also love cooking and my bakes are pretty famous in the family circuit. Plus, we have three pets – two Mastiffs and a stray one – who I adore.last_img read more
