first_imgPeople in Inishowen have been urged to have their say on the proposed upgrade of the Coyles Bridge between Quigley’s Point and Carndonagh. It is proposed to extend the bridge on the downstream side using precast concrete box culverts and to realign the northern and southern approaches to eliminate this pinch point and improve the horizontal alignment of the road in this area.The bridge is a single-span bridge which carries the R240 between Quigleys Point and Carndonagh in the townland of Meenavanaghan within the Inishowen Municipal District. There is a pinch point which reduces the carriageway width from 6.5m to 5.4m at the bridge.Closing date for submissions is before 5pm on Friday, 22 November 2019.Inishowen residents urged to have their say on upgrades to Coyles Bridge was last modified: October 16th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

It would be difficult to use it for long period of hours. If you can handle wearing something tight round your head then it should be fine. Beautiful photos do not do it justice.

first_imgShare with your Friends:More Two Groundspeak hamsters find homesTwo retired Groundspeak hamsters found ‘forever homes.’ The toy hamsters were retired after playing a starring role in a Geocaching.com video. The segment aired in a continuous loop while the website received a major update in early May. The “Geocaching.com Hamster Power” video played on an old joke – that Geocaching.com is actually powered by hamsters. (It’s not.)Thank you to the more than 100 geocachers who offered to care for the hamsters in their retirement years. Ultimately, a geocaching family from Germany and a geocaching couple from America will receive the hamsters.CacheZwerge is a team made up of  10-year-old Kai-Luka and 12-year-old Catharina.Team CacherZwerge: Catherina and Kai-LukaThey wrote, “We would be so glad to offer little Hammy a forever home. He was a hard working hamster for geocaching and now deserves a real good place to enjoy the sunny side of geocaching. We will show him all fantastic places in the Black Forest. Take him out to exciting adventures, visiting caves and climbing. Go kayaking with him and we will always carry him if he does not want to walk. Or he can get a special ride with our husky.”The other hamster up for adoption won’t be traveling as far. It’ll find a home in Indiana, USA. Miss.Betsy and her fiance Mr.Charles have been geocaching since their first date, “We’ve camped, hiked, canoed and swam and nowwe’re looking for a special pet to share in our adventures!”Miss.BetsyMiss.Betsy says no other pet would do, she’s allergic to animals. “His polyester-based fur wouldn’t require me to medicate myself, we could find some nice hiking gear for him (Or perhaps I could sew him some!) , He would have a forever home in Greenwood, Indiana. He could weekend with us wherever we decide to camp, and he could have a beautiful, two-story, to-scale townhome located in scenic my bedroom! There are many lock-in-locks in which he can nest, and if he feels the need for roomier digs, he can inhabit one of many ammo cans.”Both CacheZwerge and Miss.Betsy will be receiving their Groundspeak pets soon, with care packages including Travel Bugs so that the hamsters will be trackable. You can watch the video below that made the hamsters famous. Stay tuned to the Latitude 47 blog. You never know when another hamster will come up for adoption!

first_imgzoomIllustration; Source: Pixabay under CC0 Creative Commons license The Canadian unit of Belgian group BESIX and its joint venture partner Vancouver Pile Driving have been selected to build an LNG export facility in British Columbia, Canada.As informed, the contract was awarded to BESIX and Vanpile by the JGC-Fluor BC LNG Joint Venture (JFJV). This is the second project that BESIX will carry out in Canada.Construction of the facility in Kitimat, in the North Coast region of BC, will begin in 2019.Expected to be completed in 2021, works will include the construction of a 500-meter-long quay wall, an LNG platform, multiple dolphins and onshore infrastructure.Once completed, the LNG terminal will be maintained by JFJV and operated by LNG Canada, a joint venture between Shell, PETRONAS, PetroChina, Mitsubishi and Korea Gas Corporation (KOGAS).In October 2018, the JV partners in LNG Canada took a final investment decision (FID) on this major LNG project whose development will cost about USD 14 billion. The facility will initially export LNG from two trains totaling 14 million tons per annum (mtpa), with the potential to expand to four trains in the future.Via the Douglas Channel, one the principal fjords of British Columbia, the port in Kitimat is part of the Northwest Corridor, connecting North America to the Pacific Rim.last_img read more

first_img Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. 5 min read Entrepreneurs have an enormous stake in how well America’s patent system functions. Those who are users of patents want to be able to obtain a license on fair terms, without facing a never-ending threat of litigation and unreasonable demands. Owners of patents (who are perhaps inventors) want to be able to protect the value of their intellectual property by licensing them or profit from them by commercializing them through their businesses. Unfortunately, the reality of today’s system serves neither the interests of users of patents nor their owners. And it certainly does not serve the interests of entrepreneurs hoping to build businesses on the foundation of American innovation.Related: A Primer on Patents: Who’s Getting Them, Where and How Long It’s Taking (Infographic)Over the past two decades, inventors have collectively spent $100 billion on patent filing and application fees and even more than that to maintain them over time. Yet, 95 percent of active patents (there are 2.3 million today) fail to earn even one dollar of licensing revenue, meaning they are not finding their way into the economy. The vast majority of patents lie dormant — unused, effectively locked inside a warehouse of creative ideas.Why aren’t patent owners being paid for their ideas and why aren’t these ideas finding their way into the economy so that improved products and services can add to growth, U.S. competitiveness and more and better paying jobs? And why do entrepreneurs often fear rather than embrace the world of patents? The fault lies with the broken patent-licensing system that renders the courtroom as the only viable forum for conducting a patent-licensing “discussion.”The complexity of patents and the evolution of related law have resulted in a system where only a judge can definitively state what a particular patent covers and whether it is being infringed upon by another party. And as recently evidenced by the Supreme Court reversing multiple circuit court decisions, even the judges don’t always agree.Determining infringement requires certainty — a high bar to surmount and an expensive and time-consuming one at that. The typical patent-infringement lawsuit lasts two to four years and costs $2 million to $4 million, an expense most parties cannot afford. So not only is our patent-licensing system inefficient and wasteful, it’s also exclusionary, leaving all but the most deep-pocketed of players on the sidelines in the best of scenarios or the target of an imbalanced fight at the worst.  Related: How to Take Advantage of the “First-to-File” Patent SystemWhy can’t interested parties enter into licensing conversations directly, outside of the courtroom? Unfortunately, even commencing a discussion about licensing creates legal exposure for both parties, and most prospective licensees — whether they’re individuals, small, medium or large businesses — are quick to avoid that exposure.There is a strong incentive for companies to avoid even looking at patents, despite the fact that they represent a ready storehouse of trillions of dollars of available research and development. If a party reviews existing patents and is later found to have infringed on one of the patents it reviewed, it is deemed a “willful infringer” and subject to treble damages in a lawsuit. Not only are inventors and entrepreneurs deprived of opportunities to commercialize their great ideas, companies of all sizes are missing out on a treasure trove of innovation capital. The U.S. patent database represents more than an estimated $5 trillion America has spent on research and development over the past 20 years. Yet the lack of licensing activity suggests that Americans have failed to extract anything close to full value from that investment. Clearly the courtroom is not the best resource for entrepreneurs and startups seeking to link their businesses to emerging American innovation. And it’s foolhardy to wait for the political system, whether it’s Congress or the alphabet soup of agencies in the executive branch, to make licensing more attractive. What we need is an alternative path that allows patent-licensing conversations to take place in the marketplace, away from the lawyers and politicians.   It is incumbent upon America’s entrepreneurs and inventors to take the fight out of patent licensing, to develop a system where patent owners see a fair return on their investment and users can license relevant patents in good faith at reasonable prices. Finding a solution — a voluntary, alternative patent-licensing system that functions outside the courtroom and scales to meet the needs of emerging businesses — would amount to a lightbulb moment that could take the U.S. economy where it needs to go in the coming decades.  Related: Yes, Patent Trolls Are Hurting Your Business Enroll Now for Free August 18, 2014last_img read more
