Greener motoring showcase opens in Birmingham

SMMT chief executive, Christopher Macgowan, will chair one of the conference sessions. Commenting on the exhibition he said, ‘This is an opportunity to see first hand the tangible output from research and development towards sustainable motoring. But it is important that we don’t lose sight of the progress we are making in cutting emissions and reducing energy consumption from manufacturing sites. We are also very proud to be leading Europe in providing more information to car buyers about the environmental impact of their choice of vehicle, at the point of sale.’ The most important exhibition of greener motoring takes place this week at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham. The two-day exhibition of vehicles and technologies has been organised by SMMT and will run alongside the Environmentally Friendly Vehicle Conference. The conference is part of the UK presidency of G8 and the EU, and will be chaired by transport secretary, Alistair Darling MP. Around 200 international delegates are expected to attend, exploring how policy makers and industry can develop markets for cleaner vehicles. Notes: The Environmentally Friendly Vehicle Conference runs from 10-11 November 2005. A full list of exhibitors can be found at http://livegroup.co.uk/efvc/ The new fuel economy label shows colour coded-CO2 bands, from red to green. These are similar in format to energy efficiency labels on white goods and follow the same CO2 emission bandings used by the government to levy road tax (VED). As well as CO2 ratings, the labels also show estimated annual running costs, based on the average fuel consumption over 12,000 miles and VED. The extra information available will, for the first time, put environmental concerns firmly on the agenda for new car buyers. The sixth annual SMMT sustainability report can be found at www.smmt.co.uk/industry-topics/sustainability/ Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) Working with the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership, manufacturers developed Europe’s first colour-coded label for new cars. It follows the familiar format applied to white goods and links CO2 information with average annual running costs. The labels are now widely displayed in showrooms across the UK and representatives of the LowCVP will be on hand to talk about this important cross-stakeholder initiative. SMMT’s sixth annual sustainability report was published last month. The report shows that in the last four years, improvements have been seen across UK manufacturing sites. Energy used to produce each vehicle is down by 42 per cent and the amount of waste sent to landfill has reduced by 70.2 per cent. The exhibition will showcase the investment made by the motor industry in the drive to sustainable motoring. It includes a selection of alternative-fuelled models, like the Ford Flex Fuel Vehicle (FFV), Toyota Prius petrol-electric hybrid and Volvo’s V70 bi-fuel CNG car. Volkswagen will showcase their fuel-cell and hybrid Tourans, and a synthetic-fuelled Skoda Fabia, with BMW showing a 7 Series capable of running on hydrogen and petrol. There will also be a Lotus Elise sports car which runs on natural gas. read more

Shorthanded Ohio State mens hockey looks to gain momentum back against Penn

OSU freshman forward Dakota Joshua (8) scores the game-winning goal in a shootout against Michigan on Jan. 15 at the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Kevin Stankiewicz | Asst. Sports EditorThe Ohio State men’s hockey team will look to recover from Sunday’s loss to Michigan against the No. 14 Penn State Nittany Lions when the teams face off in back-to-back matches at the Schottenstein Center over the weekend.The puck is scheduled to drop at 7 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday.The Buckeyes (6-12-2, 1-3-2) and Penn State (15-4-3, 5-1-0) are meeting for the first time this season. Last time out a season ago, the Scarlet and Gray took down Guy Gadowsky’s men by a score of 3-1 in Detroit at Joe Louis Arena, ending Penn State’s season in the Big Ten tournament.Penn State finished off a two-game sweep of Wisconsin last Saturday. Junior forward David Goodwin is likely to keep the Buckeyes’ defense on its toes as he leads the Nittany Lions in points with 21, including 15 assists.Penn State is one of the nation’s leaders in shots on goal with 981, and it is also quite efficient at putting it in the net — the Nittany Lions have 13 players with at least 12 points this season, and each player who has made more than one appearance on the year has at least one point.“Penn State, I mean, you can see what they do. They’re as good as anybody, compete as hard as anybody,” OSU coach Steve Rohlik said. “They’re shooting pucks from the bus and they’re going on the net. We’ve just got to be disciplined, we’ve got to be good defensively and take advantage of our chances.”Magic MasonOSU will be looking for its breakout freshman forward, Mason Jobst, to continue his high-flying performances. Jobst was named the Big Ten’s third star of the week on Tuesday in recognition of his performances last weekend against Michigan.Jobst has a career-high four points in Friday’s encounter in Columbus, and followed it up with three points in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He assisted senior forward Anthony Greco off a faceoff in Game 1 at the Schottenstein Center for the tying goal with 6.7 seconds left in regulation.Even after the breakout weekend, however, the freshman said he already has his mind set on Friday’s match with the Nittany Lions.“(Michigan and Penn State) are totally two different styles,” Jobst said. “A few adjustments have been made in practice but not a whole lot. Just mainly focus on what we’ve got to do and just pay attention to their tendencies and just keep doing what we’ve been doing.”OSU freshman forward Mason Jobst (26) celebrates with the bench in a game against Michigan on Jan. 15 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won in a shootout. Credit: Kevin Stankiewicz | Asst. Sports EditorThe seven points extended Jobst’s point streak to six games, and he has three goals and 11 assists for 14 points in the stretch. He is second among Big Ten rookies with 19 points, from five goals and 14 assists this season, and is seventh in the NCAA among rookies with 1.00 points per game.“He’s always brought that energy this year,” Rohlik said. “Somehow right now he’s finding the back of the net and making some plays. He’s certainly an energy guy, he’s going to continue to bring that, but that’s what the expectations are, and he would tell you that.”“Next man standing”After the final whistle on Sunday at Yost Ice Arena, the bad blood between OSU and Michigan boiled over, and multiple players on both sides were involved in an on-ice clash. On Tuesday, the Big Ten announced a series of suspensions as a result of the altercation.Two freshmen forwards, Dakota Joshua and Brendon Kearney, were issued major penalties and received one-game disqualifications. Joshua received his penalty for facemasking, while Kearney received his for fighting.“Well, we’re going to have a lot of guys step up. Those two guys will be out, Kearney and Dakota,” Rohlik said. “I mean, next man standing, we got to have two more guys step up and be good teammates for us.”The players, such as senior defenseman and co-captain Craig Dalrymple, said they believe whoever on the roster is asked to fill the void will do so to the best of his ability.“Pretty much a ‘next man up’ mentality. Things happen at the end of the game. It was kind of interesting, but to see two guys get suspended, you never like to see that,” Dalrymple said. “Everyone will just step up, and whoever’s name is called to play will play, and we’re excited for Friday.”Joshua scored the shootout-winning goal in Friday’s game against the Wolverines, and the Buckeyes’ first goal in Sunday’s match.Up nextOSU is set to play the second of its three-weekend homestand on Jan. 29 and 30 against Michigan State. The puck is scheduled to drop at 6:30 p.m. and 7 p.m., respectively, at the Schottenstein Center. read more

JT Barrett ties record with 6th Big Ten Freshman of the Week

Redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) runs the ball during a game against Minnesota on Nov. 15 in Minneapolis. OSU won, 31-24.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorOhio State redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett set three program records against Minnesota on Saturday, then tied a Big Ten mark Monday.The conference announced Monday morning that Barrett had been named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week for the sixth time this season, tying former Illinois quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase who won the award six times in 2010.The Rider High School product set school records for the longest run by a quarterback (86 yards), the most single game rushing yards by a quarterback (189 yards) and the most total touchdowns in a season (37) during the Buckeyes’ 31-24 win against the Golden Gophers. Currently injured senior quarterback Braxton Miller previously held all three records.Against Minnesota, Barrett finished 15 of 25 on pass attempts for 200 yards and racked up 189 yards of total offense to go with four total touchdowns. His third-quarter scoring toss to redshirt-sophomore wide receiver Michael Thomas gave him the total touchdowns records, while a first-quarter 86-yard touchdown run moved him past Miller’s old mark of 81 yards.A fourth-quarter touchdown pass to senior wide receiver Evan Spencer also moved the Wichita Falls, Texas, native within one of Troy Smith’s school record of 30 touchdown passes in a season, set during his Heisman Trophy winning season in 2006.On top of his six freshman of the week awards, Barrett has also earned Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week honors three times.Through 10 games as the starter, Barrett has totaled 2,356 passing yards and 29 touchdowns compared to eight interceptions. He’s also second on the team with 771 rushing yards and first among OSU players with nine rushing touchdowns.Barrett and the Buckeyes are scheduled to return to the field on Saturday against Indiana at Ohio Stadium. Kickoff is set for noon. read more

Woman whose boyfriend was convicted over death might have been fatally injured

first_imgMiss Hyndman was admitted to hospital on May 16, 2010 with stomach pains and had become jaundiced. Despite emergency surgery, she died the next day.Asked by the area coroner, Jonathan Leach, if he thought it was more likely the fall or an assault that caused Miss Hyndman’s death, Prof Johnson said: “I do not think with the state of the injuries it’s really possible to say one way or another.”The inquest continues. Chelsea Hyndman Chelsea Hyndman with her boyfriend Luke Walker But giving evidence on the first day of a British inquest into her death, Prof Colin Johnson – a consultant surgeon and a specialist on the pancreas – said a fall while out drinking with friends 11 days before she died might have triggered her deteriorating health.Witnesses claimed Miss Hyndman, from Castleford, West Yorkshire, had a bottle in one hand while her left hand was in her belt as she adjusted her clothing, and so fell straight “like a plank” without putting her hands out in front of her.Prof Johnson claimed that her left fist caught in her belt could have been enough to cause the damage to her pancreas, which eventually caused multiple organ failure.He told Wakefield Coroner’s Court: “In the case of someone who is drunk and the abdominal muscles relaxing, falling on the fist is sufficient to suppress the pancreas and cause the injury. Falling in the way described is sufficient.” Chelsea Hyndman with her boyfriend Luke WalkerCredit:SWNS.comcenter_img Chelsea Hyndman died in hospital in May 2010Credit:SWNS.com A British woman whose boyfriend was convicted over her death while she was working in Crete could have been fatally injured when she fell on her fist 11 days before her death, an inquest heard.Chelsea Hyndman, 20, fell straight “like a plank” while out drinking with friends on the Greek island with a hand in her belt and it might have caused damage to her pancreas that later caused multiple organ failure, a coroner was told.She died from severe abdominal injuries in May 2010 and her long-term boyfriend, Luke Walker, from the West Midlands, was initially charged with her murder.During a trial in May 2013, the charge was reduced to grievous bodily harm leading to Miss Hyndman’s death, of which he was convicted last year and given a three-year suspended sentence by a court in Crete.

first_imgAfter their hard-fought 2-1 win against Lincoln City on Saturday, Everton manager Marco Silva believes his side needs to learn how to finish off games.Everton labored to a 2-1 victory at home against League Two side Lincoln City to progress to the fourth round for the second time in the last five years.Fourteen minutes into the first half, Everton were already two goals ahead thanks to strikes by Ademola Lookman and Bernard, but Lincoln City reduced the deficit through Michael Bostwick in the 28th minutes and the home side struggled to see out the game.“First we achieved the main thing, to play in the next round,” Silva told Sky Sports.“For some moments it didn’t look like we would have a quiet afternoon.

Amazon Gets Approval For Controversial Facility

first_imgBy Mark F. Gray, Special to the AFRO, mgray@afro.comThe Maryland National Capital Parks and Planning Council (MNCPPC) approved a four-million-square-foot warehouse project that is expected to be an Amazon fulfillment center in the growing Westphalia community of Prince George’s County.  Plans are for the center to be built along Maryland Route 4 (Pennsylvania Avenue) at Melwood Road near the Capital Beltway once they can be finalized. Since no lease agreement has been signed, the full details of the project cannot be released. Nonetheless, all indications are that the mammoth internet retail giant looks to be the prime tenant for a massive facility that will impact residents of the affluent – primarily African American community – in the vicinity of the former Andrews Air Force Base.Amazon was approved by the Maryland National Capital Parks and Planning Council to build their new fulfillment center in the growing Westphalia community of Prince George’s County. (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli, File)The Council gave the go-ahead to the project despite the tepid response from a community that felt they weren’t adequately considered by developers as the plans unfolded.  During a community meeting two days before MNCPPC approved the plans, residents of the Westphalia Community Center vigorously questioned representatives from Walton Westphalia Development Corporation in the clubhouse at Lake Presidential Golf Club.“It’s kind of disturbing,” said Westphalia resident Jerry Porter. “Everybody thought that they were getting retail. There’s people who invested years before we did that are still waiting for just a grocery store, and now they’re going to have a big warehouse that they’re going to have to look at from their property,” Many residents hoped that a grocery store would be the first of the retail shops that would open at the proposed Westphalia Town Center. Walton Westphalia Development Corporation, the developer of the Westphalia Town Center project, promised that shops will eventually occupy space in the town center.  The current proposed facility and grounds would cover 80 acres, and four million gross square feet including ground-floor offices with 1,794 vehicle parking spaces and 267 loading spaces, according to a story that was first reported in the Washington Business Journal. “Amazon owns Whole Foods,” said Anwar Golladay, a Westphalia resident. if Amazon is desiring to come into our neighborhood, why not give us that Whole Foods.” However, there are no specifics about what type of retail establishments, if any, that will be a part of the final project. The developer’s initial conceptual site plan that was approved in April called for a fulfillment and distribution center 70-feet high, whose footprint would be 700,000 by 2.6 million gross-square-feet and include a functional four-story interior which has now reportedly expanded.“We’ve got lots of retail [plans],” said Ed Fleming, President of the east region for Walton Development and Management. “ [A] grocery store, coffee shops and restaurants will go in here. “Retail is going to be along Pennsylvania Avenue and between Pennsylvania and Presidential [Parkway].”  The facility is expected to impact local traffic with approximately 150 tractor-trailers leaving the facility about every 10 minutes each day.   Many residents at the meeting expressed major concerns about how the trucks, the additional traffic and the noise will impact the community.“Clearly, you have to acknowledge that folks are still very emotionally upset and still concerned about this application and we still have a lot of work to do,” said William Shipp, an attorney for Walton Westphalia Development Corporation.“We need to get better about communication. Whether this project goes through or not — we hope that it does — this is a community that is going to be here.”The operators of the center have committed to work with Prince George’s County officials by adding signs on neighborhood streets that would reportedly ban truck traffic moving through the community to somewhat capitulate to the concerns of residents.last_img read more

SimCitys alwayson DRM lets you destroy anyones city

first_imgIf you’ve been on the internet in the past week or so, you’ve undoubtedly run into some portion of the SimCity debacle. The first franchise installment in around a decade was met with much disdain, as it employed an always-on DRM, and stripped some of the franchises’ core features in favor of it. However, your feelings regarding always-on DRM aside, it turns out if not for that DRM, you wouldn’t be able to wreak havoc across any player’s city at your own convenience.By way of a bit of editing game packages and tweaking code, YouTube user UKAzzer was able to trick the game into thinking he wasn’t in observer mode, but actually in control of someone else’s city. Fortunately, the demonstrated hack doesn’t involve any city syncing, so you can mess up a buddy’s city however you want, but the damage won’t be permanent.While UKAzzer’s method doesn’t permanently save city damage, he theorizes that other hackers can go deeper into the game’s code and begin spoofing city-owner IDs in order to sync the city damage.This hack wouldn’t be possible without the always-on DRM, as user cities wouldn’t all be connected through the server.Before we go blaming things on SimCity’s always-on DRM like we’re all accustomed to by now, maybe we should look at this in a positive light. You can pop into your buddy’s city and unleash Godzilla, destroying his carefully designed urban infrastructure, sending the lives of all of his digital inhabitants into disarray. That’s pretty funny.last_img read more

Heartfelt documentary reveals humanity in fight for marriage equality

first_imgeTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… Edie and Thea | Photo: YouTube/Winter Film Awards Directed by Donna Zaccaro, the film’s subject, the late Edie Windsor, helped paved the way for the Supreme Court to legalize same-sex marriage in all 50 states.Clocking it at a palatable 63-minutes, the documentary succintly reveals the simple truths at the heart of this fight: humanity, love, and dignity.Windsor married her partner of 40 years, Dr. Thea Spyer, in Canada. Two years later, Spyer passed away, and the IRS hit Windsor with a massive tax bill because Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) denied same-sex couples federal spousal benefits.When Windsor challenged this, her winning case struck down DOMA and paved the way for Obergefell v. Hodges.Humanity at the heart of the issueThe movie puts forward the single thing that has always been at the heart of the LGBTQ fight. That is, that we’re all humans, and we simply want equality and respect.While Zaccaro handles the more complex legal issues of Windsor’s case well, the movie really shines when it spotlights Windsor as a woman.A woman in love, a woman grieving at the loss of her partner, a woman fighting for what should be hers.Two relationships are at the center of it all: both Windsor’s romantic relationships with Spyer, and her eventualy friendship with lawyer Roberta Kaplan.Windsor in the documentary, wearing the diamond pin | Photo: YouTube/Winter Film AwardsWindsor and Spyer met and started their relationship after meeting in New York City. Though Windsor was nervous about discrimination, she and Spyer nonetheless became engaged. Instead of wearing a traditional engagement ring, however, Windsor wore a diamond circle as a pin.It’s seen throughout the documentary, as a testament to both her love and her fight. Read the full article on Gaystarnews:  :https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/documentary-marriage-equality-windsor/center_img It’s fitting that the new documentary To a More Perfect Union comes out today, on the three-year anniversary of marriage equality in the United States. GAYSTARNEWS- Kaplan represented Windsor in her case, all the way to the Supreme Court. The film briefly touches on her own background, including her coming out to her parents and her eventual marriage to her wife.It makes it clear, though, that the relationship between Kaplan and Windsor became something special. There are scenes of Windsor at Kaplan’s house, doting on Kaplan’s son. The case clearly and understandably bonded them and the documentary reveals that. Through all the legal jargon, these two women were simply fighting for better lives.Changing attitudes and the perfect heroWindsor sadly passed away last year, though her legacy remains ever present in the community.The documentary makes a point to discuss her as the ‘right’ person to be a champion. She was pretty, well-spoken, educated, and a perfect and easily acceptable hero. There is an unsaid implication in a possibly different outcome had, perhaps, the challenger been a black woman, poorer, or some other trait less accepted by society.Though the movie does not linger on this for too long, it is a present thought.Windsor is treated with nothing but respect, kindness, and warmth throughout the movie.It aptly shows how her resilience helped change minds about marriage equality and the LGBTQ community at large.Both President Obama and Vice President Biden, in power at the time of Windsor’s case, publicly address their changing views. For the first time, they both unequivocally give their support to marriage equality.Zoccaro’s documentary offers nothing new in the way of information or viewpoints. However, it is a tender, eloquent, and well-made recollection of an important moment in our community’s history. Windsor’s story, while possessing its share of strife and struggle, is ultimately feel-good and why this movie is a must-see.[embedded content]Got a news tip? Want to share your story?

Eni made important gas discovery in block 6 updated

first_imgItaly’s energy giant Eni said that it made a lean gas discovery off the coast of Cyprus after drilling an exploratory well at Calypso, the target of exploration in block 6 of the island’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ).“The well, which was drilled in 2,074 meters of water depth reaching a final total depth of 3,827 meters, encountered an extended gas column in rocks of Miocene and Cretaceous age,” Eni said in a statement on its website on Thursday. “The Cretaceous sequence has excellent reservoir characteristics”.An analysis of data following a collection of fluids and rock samples revealed that Calypso “is a promising gas discovery and confirms the extension of the ‘Zohr like’ play” into the Cypriot EEZ, the company said.Lean gas, also known as dry gas, consists of more than 95 per cent methane and ethane as opposed to wet or rich gas, which contains more propane and butane.Earlier, energy minister Yiorgos Lakkotrypis said the new finding of Eni, which in 2015 announced the discovery of Zohr, a mammoth gas finding of the coast of Egypt, was “important”.“The news is positive,” Lakkotrypis said in a telephone interview. “Eni makes no public announcement if there is no discovery”.He added that the purity of Calypso’s gas in methane and ethane exceeds 99 per cent.The Italian energy firm, which owns 50 per cent the exploration and exploitation rights for block 6 in partnership with France’s Total, said “additional studies will be carried out to assess the range of the gas volumes in place and define further exploration and appraisal operations”.The minister also declined to comment about size of the finding, which according to a previous Cyprus Mail report, is estimated between 170 to 230 billion cubic meters (BCM) of natural gas, or 4.8 to 8.1 trillion cubic feet (tcf). By comparison, Aphrodite, discovered in 2011 and was until now, Cyprus’s single gas finding, contains only 4.5 tcf.Still, “the discovery means two things,” Lakkotrypis continued, “Quantities are added to our reserves (and) it is huge deposit news for those who will drill in the future”.It proved, which was re-affirmed with Onisiforos field, despite the negligible size of the finding, that there is an oil system similar to that of Zohr, Eni’s 2015 mammoth discovery off the coast of Egypt.The Italian hydrocarbon company has also 100 per cent of the rights for block 8. It is also part of a consortium with Total for block 11 and with South Korea’s KoGas for blocks 2, 3 and 9 of the EEZ.Eni’s drill ship is currently heading to Cuttlefish field, in block 3, for a new exploratory drill. In the second half of the year, the consortium of US ExxonMobil and Qatar Petroleum is scheduled to carry out two drillings in block 10. Important also for ExxonMobil which is set to launch drilling in the second half of the year, the minister said.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue BookSubcompact Luxury SUV Best Buy of 2019Kelley Blue BookUndoFinancialAdvisorHeroesFox News’ Jessie Watters Really Lives In This HouseFinancialAdvisorHeroesUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

SI: A key criticism of the past incarnation of PEPFAR is that it frequently didn’t target to the demographic of the epidemic The federal government ban on needle exchange meant that money given to Vietnam couldn’t be used for that even though they have an epidemic driven by injection drug use Other countries that had epidemics driven in part by sex workers were limited I realize that Congress stipulates these things but will that change with the new leadership EG: The simple answer is yes Those have both been targeted and prioritized in this Administration and in our office already We’re well down the road and working on moving away from any constraints put on an individual program to not engage with a population because they’re sex workers or involved in injection drug use I have spent much of my life focused on matching demographics to responses If you do not base responses to the demographics of your epidemic you will not be successful at reaching the populations who are already infected And you’ll especially be ineffective at reaching the higher risk populations that will become infected SI: How do you get around the needle-exchange ban EG: PEPFAR is not burdened by the needle-exchange ban It is a domestic-based ban Legislatively we are not restricted And we are in a dialog with the White House to try to rapidly change that position domestically given that it already is open to our international activities SI: I had always been told it was an international ban That’s inaccurate EG: That’s inaccurate SI: The Bush Administration has been praised for PEPFAR maybe more so than for any other of the programs it launched How do you view coming in to something that’s working EG: I’m grateful to PEPFAR for the work it has done putting a finger in the dike but we have by no means reached the threshold by which we can relax or view this as a job well done The job that has been done is precariously positioned to not sustain itself We need to make that the number one concern We must expect our partner countries to integrate these services into their existing public systems—or we won’t have them They’re too dependent on an NGO-based continuum of care and those systems are fragile and dependent on ephemeral funding They are not in and of the public systems that the majority of patients are accessing for their care We can’t NGO this disease off the planet That’s not to say NGOs don’t play a critical role in completing the continuum of care but we must place them in the public sector to ensure their durability SI: One criticism of PEPFAR is that it has put so much money into US-based NGOs that it hasn’t built enough local infrastructure in other countries Do you see that changing EG: I think that is the change We need to look at how to build country-based country-run country-owned delivery systems We can’t just build islands of excellence with HIV care and not address the larger health needs of that same individual That’s shortsighted The president and Secretary Clinton have been very clear about wanting all the vertical programs—HIV TB malaria immunization maternal and child health—to now look at expanding the service constellation and bringing in those broader health needs of what is a complete overlap in populations The discussion is mostly focused on using women as that access point to children husbands and partners SI: PEPFAR will have to struggle to keep supplying antiretrovirals (ARVs) to the people already on the drugs especially given the likelihood that more and more will develop resistance and need more expensive treatments Will you be able to expand the program EG: We are concerned about this too Our ability to keep up with this is going to be especially challenging in this economic downturn We’d be foolish not to open up a strategy to try and bring in other bilateral and multilateral resources We need to be smarter about how we think as funders We can’t just go in with parallel systems of intervention It is probably the biggest issue on my plate thinking about how to deal with that expanding need and how to continue the medical clinical and ethical commitment we’ve made to the patients already on drug We’re looking for efficiencies by moving to a more country-based delivery system We also need an aggressive new dialog with our global partners who have resources that can converge on this SI: Some have suggested that PEPFAR fold and give the money to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS Tuberculosis and Malaria and get rid of the redundancy What do you think of that idea EG: Right now I would not be ready to turn over the resources from PEPFAR to the Global Fund but I’d like to really move them together The Global Fund has played a critical role no doubt about it the role in many countries The Global Fund’s process is the right idea—it is more country-based—but the ability to support that country in its implementation challenges has been less than optimal It’s the combination of a PEPFAR and a Global Fund strategy that really will win the day here SI: How many people are receiving ARVs through PEPFAR now and what are your projections for the 5-year plan EG: We’re around 24 million now and climbing rapidly We have no doubt that we will meet the 3 million goal very soon We’re moving much more rapidly than we had anticipated like two to three times as fast There’s no question we’ll be increasing The question really is can we match the resources in a timely fashion to the expanding need That’s really what I spend most of my time thinking about SI: What is the estimated need EG: The legislation goal was 3 million but that’s probably about 40% of what we know is the need already so there are about 7 million people in need of antiretrovirals SI: What other issues are you facing EG: It’s a no brainer in terms of the science to use tenofovir instead of d4T [an ARV that has serious side effects] The problem is the cost The same with using the current policy of 200 CD4 cells to start treatment versus 350 CD4s as the cutoff The science has been there for a long time That’s why no else is doing 200 The United States has been at 350 forever You could argue we should be in the 400 to 500 range The science is clear What isn’t clear is how we can pay for that We need to be honest: We’re in the business of trying to find resources to cover that extraordinary expansion of need And the elephant in the room again is the second-line treatment cost going up three four times the cost of first-line for the most part That’s the final thing that keeps me up at night The impact of a pesky bug in the Northeast US is apparent in satellite images of forest areas taken by NASA The European gypsy moth caterpillar has taken a big bite out of New England’s hardwood forests the images reveal The caterpillar has enjoyed a population boom in 2016 and between May and June newly hatched insects have chomped away at the forests’ leaves While wildfires cause significant destruction of the world’s forests insects and disease also pack a mighty punch Scientists say two key factors have led to the of the caterpillar’s exploding growth: the decline of one of the gypsy caterpillar’s main predators and dry seasons that have staved off pathogens that control the population of the fuzzy brown bug Though the bug is having a significant impact
