Packers Plus files appeal of court ruling fracking technology patent is invalid

first_imgCALGARY – Packers Plus Energy Services Inc. has filed an appeal of a Federal Court of Canada ruling in December that declared invalid its patent for a well-completion technology that has helped usher in the shale oil and gas boom in North America.In a filing with the Federal Court of Appeal, the Calgary-based fracking technology company asks that its patent be upheld and that its patent infringement claims be supported.Defendants it names include Houston-based Weatherford International and Baker Hughes, along with producer Harvest Operations Corp. and service firms Essential Energy Services and Resource Well Completion Technologies Inc. of Calgary.In the December decision, the judge ruled that Packers’ patent isn’t valid because it was an “obvious” improvement on existing techniques and had been publicly disclosed before the patent application was filed.Packers’ system, patented in Canada in November 2002, is used to control and separate high-pressure injections of liquids and sand used to break up tight underground rock and free the oil and gas to be produced from horizontal wells, a process called hydraulic fracturing or fracking.It says in court documents the technology invented by Daniel Themig has been used in more than 10,000 wells since 2001 and has helped Packers grow from 30 employees to almost 1,000.last_img read more

No YoYo test for CSK players

first_imgNew Delhi: The Yo-Yo test might be considered a must under the leadership of India skipper Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri, but MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings will not be performing the fitness test as they gear up for the rigours of the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Former India trainer Ramji Srinivasan, who is associated with the franchise till the first game of this season, has picked the 2 km or 2.4 km run and the Sprint Repeat test as the measuring scale to gauge the fitness of the players. Also Read – Andy Murray to make Grand Slam return at Australian OpenRamji explained how he prefers smart training and designs tests keeping in mind the specific requirements of individual players rather than carrying a common testing parametre like the Yo-Yo test. “I have picked the 2 km or 2.4 km run to check the fitness standards of the players as also the Sprint Repeat test. Just because the national team does the Yo-Yo test doesn’t mean I need to follow the process. “I believe in the need to prepare challenges for players keeping their specific requirements in mind. For example, even when I was with the Indian team, the training regime I prepared for Dhoni wasn’t the same as the one for Sachin Tendulkar. Also Read – Fast bowler Behrendorff to undergo spinal surgery”Similarly, if Virat Kohli is keen to do deadlifts and his body reacts positively to it, doesn’t mean that MS must also do them. The Yo-Yo is more suited to aerobic sports like football and that is how it started. “Also, fitness is a wide spectrum and it is important to keep a comprehensive approach to overall fitness and not just on endurance level. Overall tabulation is very important to look into the various factors like strength, power, agility, endurance, flexibility etc,” he said. Asked to explain Dhoni’s workout regime, Ramji said: “MS is in a different zone altogether. He likes to keep things very simple. He doesn’t do clean-and-jerk and other forms of power lifting. He likes to do his strength work and boxing work. Basically he is a smart trainer and works on a set of exercises that is simple and helps sharpen his skills.”last_img read more

Artists chosen for Great Art for Great Lakes

Norfolk County artists Michael Barber, Suzanne Earls and Holly Anderson have been chosen to participate in Great Art for Great Lakes this year.They were among artists to submit proposals for a community-engagement project to strengthen local residents’ relationship with the Great Lakes. The project is in partnership with Norfolk County.Barber is working on a piece, entitled Water Mother, a wood-and-resin sculpture that combines woodworking and sandblasting, among other things.“My work had to reflect the body of work that I do on a day-to-day basis,” said Barber. “I wanted to create something for this project that people would look at and recognize as my work regardless.”Barber will be teaching residents a technique so they can leave their mark on the sculpture.“Having your mark in this sculpture is your commitment to take care of water and respect nature more,” said Barber.Earls and Anderson are working together on a project entitled Depths & Consequences.Being in the right place at the right time led to the duo working together on the project.Anderson said that, during the information session about the projects, she was looking for someone with whom to collaborate. Earls walked up to her and showed her a note that said she wanted to do a collaboration with Cleaning Up Norfolk, which Anderson founded. The pair began discussing possible projects.They are creating is a 2-D mosaic of a sturgeon made of recycled glass tiles, mixed with single-use plastic found along the Erie shores during planned cleanup days.“The inspiration is the reduction of single-use plastic waste, as well as the regeneration of lake sturgeons,” said Earls.The pair noted that sturgeon were once plentiful in Lake Erie, but their population has dwindled due to over-fishing.“Lake Erie has in some spots a greater concentration of plastic pollution than even parts of the ocean,” said Anderson. “The reality is Lake Erie has a major plastic problem and we need to address that.”The public will be invited to participate by designing fish scales from discarded plastic.The public can find out when they are able to help with the two projects by visiting Great Art for Great Lakes website.The pieces will be on display in the community.astaylor@postmedia.com read more

Buster Posey Has Quietly Become A Lock For Cooperstown

A few names come to mind when pondering the surefire Hall of Famers playing baseball today. Adrian Beltre, who recently broke the 3,000-hit barrier, is one, as is Mike Trout, despite his youth. But there’s another all-time great who is toiling away on one of the worst teams in MLB: San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey. The Giants’ record might make Posey easy to overlook, but his combination of hitting and defense makes him almost a lock to one day join the Hall. In fact, despite being only 30 years old, Posey might already have a Hall of Fame résumé if he retired today.It’s difficult to forecast whether any given catcher will find his way to Cooperstown. Only 18 backstops have made the Hall, and some did so in part because of accomplishments after their playing careers (as managers or executives).1For example, Rick Ferrell is listed by Baseball-Reference.com as having been inducted as a player, but he produced only 29.8 wins above replacement in his career (34th on the all-time list of catchers). However, Ferrell won two championships as an executive before his induction, which probably helped his Hall-of-Fame case. Perhaps because of the strain of constant crouching and the beatings they receive behind the plate, catchers are notoriously quick to decline, and historically great performers can become merely ordinary in the space of a few years.But Posey is special. In a nine-year career, he’s already amassed 37.5 wins above replacement (WAR),2According to Baseball Reference.com. which puts him 25th on the all-time list among backstops. If we look at how productive all catchers have been through age 303That is, up to and including a player’s age-30 season as defined by Baseball-Reference. — Posey’s current age — he looks even better, ranking 11th all-time in WAR.According to Jay Jaffe’s JAWS, a rough guide to measuring a player’s Hall-of-Fame qualifications,4JAWS (the “Jaffe WAR Score system”) determines Hall-worthiness by comparing an average of a player’s career WAR and his WAR in his seven best seasons with the typical mark for a Hall member at his position. Posey would have a decent chance to make the Hall even if he never played another game. I looked at the top 500 catchers’ JAWS scores and used them to calculate the probability that they would one day be inducted into the Hall.5I used a logistic regression model, with JAWS score as a predictor and Hall of Fame induction as the outcome. I excluded catchers who made the Hall as managers but not as players. Posey’s JAWS score is 36.8 — already only a little below the catcher average of 43.9. (Coincidentally, Posey’s current JAWS score is identical to the end-of-career score of stalwart backstop Ernie Lombardi, who made the Hall of Fame.) Based on this analysis, Posey would have about a 29 percent chance of getting to Cooperstown if he retired today — and as we’ll see below, those numbers probably understate Posey’s contributions.Why is Posey’s résumé so strong? It starts with his impressive numbers at the plate. Since 2009, Posey’s first season in MLB, he has the 17th-highest Weighted Runs Created Plus in baseball, and he’s the only full-time catcher in the top 50. Posey has power, to which his 128 home runs (in one of MLB’s least hitter-friendly ballparks) can attest. He also has patience, with a career walk rate of 9.6 percent, well above the MLB average of 8.1 percent.But Posey is much more than just a catcher who hits well. In addition to his power and discipline, Posey has been one of the best defensive catchers in baseball during his career — thanks to his particular knack for pitch framing.Catcher framing is the art of receiving a pitch so that an umpire is more likely to call it a strike. Before the debut of pitch-tracking technology such as PITCHf/x and Statcast, the idea of framing as a skill was unproven, but now it can be measured. And as Hall-of-Fame voters increasingly understand and recognize the importance of framing, catchers like Posey will probably benefit.Baseball Prospectus rates Posey as the seventh-best framer since 1988,6That’s the first year for which those statistics can be calculated. so he’s among the cream of the crop. And because framing isn’t factored into most versions of wins above replacement, Posey is somewhat underrated even by newfangled Hall-of-Fame yardsticks like JAWS.Baseball Prospectus’s version of WAR incorporates the number of runs a catcher saves via framing (which the version from FanGraphs does not, and the version from Baseball-Reference accounts for in a much smaller way).7The Baseball-Reference metric for catcher defense has a much smaller range of framing values than Baseball Prospectus’s does. For instance, it assigns Posey only 54 runs of value from his defense over the course of his career, while BP puts the value from Posey’s framing alone at nearly double that (104 runs). Unsurprisingly, Posey’s value under that measure is higher, shooting up to 49.8 WAR. If we recalculate his JAWS score using Prospectus’s version of WAR, then, Posey is already good enough to have an 85 percent chance of making the Hall, according to my calculations. Now, Posey’s framing value this year has been minimal, so it’s possible that he’s losing his touch (he wouldn’t be the only older catcher to forget how to frame a pitch). But even if you assume that he will be a league-average framer going forward, Posey’s JAWS could end up high enough to practically guarantee a Hall of Fame induction.8This is based on a series of career simulations described later in the article.In some ways, comparing Posey with the historic greats of yesteryear in this manner isn’t fair. We don’t know what kind of framer Johnny Bench was, for example, and it’s possible that his already-tremendous WAR total would just get more inflated if we did. But we do know that it’s rare for a catcher to have both offensive ability and framing skills. (The few catchers better than Posey defensively tend to be specialists like Jose Molina and Brad Ausmus.) Conversely, there are a lot of catchers who are not great framers but nonetheless have long careers because they excel at the plate. So it’s likely that at least some of the catchers ahead of Posey on the all-time list would see their total value decline if we could measure their framing ability.Add it all up, and Posey has likely already had a Hall-of-Fame career. And his playing days probably won’t end anytime soon — the average catcher who had 20 or more WAR through age 30 ended up playing another six and a half seasons. So Posey has plenty of years to improve upon his already impressive career. To get a sense of how Posey might end up finishing his run, I asked the folks at Out of the Park Baseball — a baseball simulation engine — to game out the rest of his career. Out of the Park came back with four simulations of Posey’s future. And according to each, the hypothetical Busters fared very well. In each simulation, Posey earned an end-of-career JAWS score of greater than 51, which would give him at least a 90 percent chance of making the Hall, according to my calculations. With an average of about 2,000 hits, 400 doubles and 250 home runs, Posey’s milestones weren’t overly impressive, so he didn’t make the Hall on the first ballot in the simulations — it usually took three to four years for him to get in — but he was eventually inducted in each universe that was played out. That sounds pretty similar to what will happen in our universe, too.Posey is one of the few catchers in history who can do it all. He can hit and frame, and he even provides extra value by blocking errant pitches and throwing out runners. When you combine his offensive and defensive skills, Posey might just be the most underappreciated Hall of Famer playing today.CORRECTION (Aug. 24, 10:02 a.m.): An earlier version of this article incorrectly said that Baseball-Reference.com’s version of wins above replacement does not incorporate the number of runs saved via catcher framing. It does, although Baseball-Reference’s method assigns less value to framing than Baseball Prospectus’s version of WAR does. read more

Plagiarizing print editor claims the entire Internet is public domain

first_imgIt seems hard to believe that anyone could be entirely ignorant of the nature and legal protections on the Internet at this point, but those people are still out there, as writer Monica Gaudio discovered when a print editor stole her content and then shined her on by saying “the Internet is public domain.”Here’s the story: way back in 2005, Monica Gaudio wrote an article about apple pie recipes for a blog devoted to — of all things — medieval, Chaucer-era cooking, complete with spellings of certain words appropriate to the era. Five years later, though, Gaudio was alerted to her post appearing in the non-profit Cooks Source magazine… a non-profit publication with a circulation of between 17,000 and 28,000 readers.Gaulio remained calm: mistakes happen. She emailed the managing editor, Judith Griggs, asking for clarification. When it turned out that Griggs had wilfully republished the piece, Gaudio asked for an apology and a donation to Columbia’s Journalism school.Instead, she got this almost unfathomably ignorant retort:But honestly Monica, the web is considered “public domain” and you should be happy we just didn’t “lift” your whole article and put someone else’s name on it! It happens a lot, clearly more than you are aware of, especially on college campuses, and the workplace. If you took offence [sic] and are unhappy, I am sorry, but you as a professional should know that the article we used written by you was in very bad need of editing, and is much better now than was originally. Needless to say, the internet is not “public domain.” How could anyone think otherwise? If the internet was public domain, we wouldn’t see music labels suing Bittorrent users for millions in damages.Laughably, Griggs got something else wrong too: the “need of editing” she’s complaining about is actually the correction of archaic spellings used in the apple pie recipes.What a dope. I’m guessing Griggs wishes she’d simply written the check and kept her mouth shut now: this story’s all over the place today.Read more at Live Journal (via Gizmodo)last_img read more

Article 50 is triggered but how are people around the border reacting

first_imgThen come the gloating texts from listeners in Sheffield and Hemel Hempstead, who in unison bid “auf wiedersehen, pet” to the union. One even has a poem.But, mentions of a border, either hard or soft, that would run from Dundalk to Derry from March 2019? Zero.“I voted Leave, but not for the reasons you’d think,” one man who has lived in Strabane all his life tells me. “I voted Leave because I don’t like globalisation.”He describes himself as a socialist with republican leanings, but says any talk of soldiers on the bridge to the Republic is “disingenuous”.“I’m old enough to remember the checks on that bridge before the British Army were called in and it wasn’t a ‘hard border’ by any stretch. Me and my friends would often smuggle drink or cigarettes across.”Passport pushThough Strabane is a town of just 18,000, there are a number of ethnic groups. Around 400 are supported by the Strabane Ethnic Community Association and project coordinator Kamini Rao says those communities are scrambling to get passports – Irish passports.“A lot of our members don’t have citizenship, but the day the vote happened, it was crazy with people coming in. They were completely worried.We’ve been trying to get their citizenship sorted and Irish passports are the one mostly everybody is opting for. It’s the least expensive and requires the least documentation.Kamini says a UK passport application costs around £1,000 and may not be granted. For one family who she advises, that means eight passport applications would run to £8,000.“An Irish application costs €195 and you pay the remainder if it’s granted.“People are racing to get the passports done. Most of them have been here for around 10 years and had their EU card, which was fine, they have jobs, some have kids who were born here and are part of the community.They were so easy going. I’d been seeing them in town saying ‘you have to get that (passport) sorted and they’d be like ‘yeah it’ll be another few years’, but this weekend has been constantly printing out forms.Bridge over water A file photo shows an Army border check outside Derry, not far from Strabane. Source: Eamonn FarrellIf you take the short drive into Lifford, there’s a more discernible worry about the idea of a hard border.Here, most businesses have their prices in sterling and euro and some remember when a customs hut was at the foot of the bridge.“That’s what’s worrying people most,” says Danny.“There’s nobody wants the border brought back. Are we going to have to take our passports to cross the bridge? Are people going to have their shopping checked by customs?” 69 Comments That’s the feeling from most people here, he says.A woman I speak to says that she has grown up hearing of “soldiers on the bridge and snipers over it”, meaning that Strabane was a no-go until she was in her teens.Now, she nips across to Asda or the Chinese.“I really hope there’s no border because it’ll close off that side of the river for a lot of people.”Another worry in Lifford is petrol. Service stations display their prices in both currencies because Strabane only recently got its first petrol pumps.So the flow of people into Lifford is constant, but the concern is that nobody will be willing to drive across a hard border just for petrol.But, with two years of negotiations still to come, those worries could last for a while.Read: ‘No turning back’: The UK has triggered Article 50 to leave the EU Mar 30th 2017, 12:05 AM Article 50 is triggered, but how are people around the border reacting?

Amazon Channels Review

first_img Watch: Bill Gates Reveals His Worst Fear in Netflix Docuseries TrailerPlex Enters The Streaming Service Wars With Cable-Style Bundle Stay on target Amazon, it’s not just for instant toilet paper buttons. The online retail giant is also one of the biggest sources of online video streaming, with acquired and original content that rivals Hulu, YouTube, and famous Iron Fist service Netflix. You don’t even need a larger Amazon Prime subscription to jump in anymore. You can subscribe just to Amazon Video for $8.99 per month (even if the $99 per year Amazon Prime offer is a better deal).However, a base Amazon Video subscription doesn’t give you access to all the video Amazon has to offer. Far from it. Amazon Channels, not to be confused with Seattle fashion line Amazon Chanel, is an à la carte streaming TV service for watching premium channels from across all genres. If you’re only interested in one or two channels, this a way to get them directly. However, if you’re looking to completely rebuild your TV library after you’ve cut the cord, be aware that prices will add up.To start watching any Amazon Channel first you need to be an Amazon Prime member, so that’s already a cost. Then you subscribe to whatever channels you’re interested in on a monthly basis. The price depends on the channel. An HBO subscription costs $14.99 per month whereas PBS Kids is only $4.99. Each channel comes with a one-week free trial. Amazon Channels are also now available in more countries than before.Once you’ve subscribed, you can access all of the TV shows and movies that particular channel has to offer. You use the same trusty video player Amazon uses for all of its other video content, and that means the videos are also available to watch through Amazon’s mobile apps and streaming media devices like the Fire Stick. That’s convenient. I watched the bewildering first episode of the new Twin Peaks on my tiny iPhone screen, just as David Lynch intended.Whatever genre you’re into, you can most likely find a channel that suits your needs. There are the usual premium suspects like HBO and Showtime and Starz and Cinemax. But there are also more niche channels like Shudder for horror, Seeso for comedy, and Up Faith & Family for… the faithful with families. There are channels just dedicated to fitness, prestige cinema, and (really) anime, the exact opposite of prestige cinema.That’s a lot to choose from, and collectively you could build a broad TV alternative with these channels. The only problem is that if you subscribe to all those premium channels, their premium prices will add up and leave a premium dent in your wallet. Again, you already need a base Amazon Prime subscription to even have the luxury for paying for Amazon Channels. And since, on average, each channel’s subscription costs roughly the same as a Prime subscription, each channel you add multiplies that cost by another factor. (I’m not a mathematician).Amazon Channels also add another layer of confusion to what you can watch with what Amazon status. Amazon Video lets you watch Amazon original shows like Transparent as well as a collection of other shows and movies. But Amazon Channels require their own separate subscriptions. Meanwhile, there’s also an even larger library of current and old shows and movies you can purchase or rent individually whether you’re a member or not.And sometimes these groups overlap. Anyone can buy individual episodes of Silicon Valley season three. But season four, the latest season, requires an HBO Amazon Channel subscription. Meanwhile, older HBO shows like The Wire and The Sopranos are just included with the base Prime membership. It can be tough to keep straight, especially if you don’t want to spend money unnecessarily.If you’re already an Amazon Prime membership and just want to watch Game of Thrones without going through traditional TV hassle, Amazon Channels will quickly give you the onion knights you’re looking for. But if you want your TV diet to be any larger, there are better bulk deals.Subscribe to Amazon ChannelsView as: One Page Slides1/201. So many streaming TV services to choose from.

Cautions from DEMA as Whale Watching Season starts

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 12 Jan 2016 – It is one of the more beautiful sea spectacles in the world and it happens right here in the Turks and Caicos: it is whale watching. DEMA reminds that we are in the season to see the migration of Humpback Whales and while this is a wonderful encounter it could also prove dangerous, even deadly if audiences are not careful. A list of Do’s and Don’ts was distributed today by DEMA. Among the cautions are that all vessels should approach slowly, carefully and quietly while maintaining a distance which does not stress or threaten the whales… avoid what DEMA called fencing the whales. It is when you block them in too close to shore or trap them between boats. You can tell that a whale is stressed when it changes its direction from 3 to 5 times and if you don’t think that is important, DEMA warns that whales can become aggressive and given their size, we are pretty much no match for the mammals. At sea courtesy is also encouraged, DEMA said boaters should communicate to each other if they want to share the whale watching experience, first. Last March, a Canadian woman was killed when a Humpback Whale landed on her tourist boat in Mexico and in September, two kayakers in Calilfornia were nearly crushed to death when a Humpback Whale lunged up and landed on their flimsy boat. DEMA explained that “Humpback whales travel great distances during their seasonal migration, the farthest migration of any mammal. In winter, the whales migrate to calving grounds in subtropical or tropical waters, such as the Turks & Caicos Islands, giving us an opportunity to experience these majestic mammals first hand.” Clement Howell High get their hands dirty for World Wetlands Day 2016 Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Climate Change blamed for seawater woes in Grand Turk Recommended for you Emergency action in Grand Turk due to sea surges Related Items:cautions, dema, whale watchinglast_img read more
