Mr. President,Dear Veterans,Mr. General Secretary,Mr. Ambassador,Your excellencies,Ladies and Gentlemen,Good evening.Last November the world marked the centenary of the end of the First World War. The Great War was supposed to be the war to end all wars. But less than 21 years later, Europe was at war again, and in September this year we will commemorate the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of World War II.While not a battleground in either of the Wars, Cyprus contributed significantly to the allied effort. Yet in many ways, Cyprus’s role in the two wars is an untold story.The greatest contribution of Cyprus to the First World War was in the form of the Cyprus Mule Corp. Between 13,000 and 16,000 volunteer muleteers, Greek and Turkish speaking, served with the British army on the Macedonian Front.In the Second World War, Cypriots fought side by side with forces from across the Commonwealth and the allies. Some 20,000 Cypriots from all communities of the island – Greek, Turkish, Armenian, Maronite and Latin – volunteered with the Armed Forces, while another 10,000 Cypriots living in the UK, Australia and US enlisted for service in those countries. Best known among the Cypriot volunteer forces was the Cyprus Regiment, founded on 12 April 1940, and celebrating its 79th anniversary this Friday. And not only Cypriot men joined the allied cause; Cypriot women participated in the Women’s Auxiliary Territorial Service and Women’s Auxiliary Air Force.Members of the Cyprus Regiment saw service not only in Greece, but also France, Italy the Middle East and North Africa. Some 600 men were killed in action, and are buried in 56 cemetries in 16 countries.Yet for me one of the most inspiring moments as High Commissioner was to attend the Mayor of Nicosia’s Remembrance Day event in November, and to meet and thank the Cyprus WW2 veterans present. It is wonderful to have veterans among us again tonight. Theirs are the living faces of Cyprus in WW2. We owe a great debt to them and the other Cyprus volunteers for their contribution to the allied cause. They fought for the cause of freedom and they were part of the victory over fascism in Europe. Regrettably, the adherents of fascism were to make their presence felt again in Cyprus, with tragic consequences for the people of this island.Strangely these facts are not well known to ordinary Cypriots. References to Cyprus’ contributions in the World Wars in the public schools’ curriculum are limited and certainly not sufficient. I wonder how many Cypriots have visited the memorials to the fallen erected in Nicosia, Paphos and Larnaca by the Cyprus Veterans’ Association of WWII?“1940: Faces & Images” is a positive step towards raising the profile of Cyprus in the World Wars. I welcome the fact that this exhibition includes participation from the Imperial War Museum and that a smaller part of it will travel to the National Army Museum in London, bringing the stories of UK-Cyprus co-operation in the Great Wars to the attention of the broader public in both our countries. These testimonies of historic co-operation form an important part of our bilateral links and the history that binds our nations together.The High Commission is pleased to be working with the Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation on some side events to the exhibition in the coming months which will further tell the stories of the Great Wars.Learning about and from the past is important for every nation. Cyprus has a number of impressive stories to tell from this part of its history: of communities working together side by side for the common good; defending freedom; and providing protection to those in need; and industriousness. Such values are as important today as in the past and central to Cyprus’s modern role and vocation as a pillar of stability and European values in the Eastern Mediterranean region.I congratulate the Bank of Cyprus Foundation for its initiative to hold this Exhibition and like all of you, I look forward to learning more from it.Thank you and a very good evening.
Webster RG, Govorkova EA. H5N1 influenza–continuing evolution and spread. (Perspective) N Engl J Med 2006 Nov 23;355(21):2174-7 [Full text](CIDRAP Source Weekly Briefing) – Certain recent new stories may have sown confusion about whether the threat of pandemic influenza still exists, and whether the world needs to continue to prepare. A New England Journal of Medicine article published last week provides the antidote, and the answer: It does, and we do.Reknowned avian flu expert Robert G. Webster, PhD, and colleague Elena Govorkova, MD, PhD, enumerate several factors that support the conclusion that the situation is worsening, not abating.These factors include an increasing number of countries affected [add link to graphic], ever increasing genetic differences within H5N1 “clades” (subgroups of the deadly form of avian flu virus), antiviral drug resistance, lack of adequate disease control in developing countries, imperfect poultry vaccinations, and continued infection in waterfowl.Webster and Govorkova point out that H5N1 originated in Southeast Asia, similar to the origin of the last two pandemics in 1957 and 1968.The authors also explain how the H5N1 virus has emerged into two clades (clades 1 and 2) or genetically distinct viruses, the latter of which is further divided into three subclades. Unfortunately, these H5N1 categories differ enough genetically that a vaccine against one is unlikely to provide protection against the others.The authors do suggest that protection offered by a vaccine against one clade may offer some benefit against death if the pandemic is caused by other clades or subclades. Thus, they believe that it is “worth stockpiling” pre-pandemic vaccines, which differs from recent advice from the World Health Organization (WHO).Another obstacle to stopping the spread of avian influenza has been resistance to antivirals such as oseltamivir (Tamiflu). The authors point out that most of the clade 1 viruses are resistant, while most clade 2 viruses are not. Adding to the problem has been a delay in administering antivirals to patients with H5N1 infection in many instances, which may further promote natural selection of resistant strains because of high levels of virus in the patient’s body.The article also points out that, although controlling H5N1 influenza through culling and quarantining domestic poultry has worked for some wealthy countries such as Japan, that hasn’t been the case in poorer countries such as Thailand. Of note, in the past week, (The authors also mention South Korea’s success, but just within the past week it reported two separate H5N1 outbreaks in domestic poultry, calling into question the long-term effectiveness of Korea’s approach.)In addition, the authors do note that the effort to vaccinate uninfected poultry in conjunction with quarantine and culling by China, Indonesia, and Vietnam has failed, because the poultry vaccines are of poor quality, do not provide sufficient immunity, and promote genetic changes in the virus that may aid its spread.Webster and Govorkova point out that since Vietnam adopted a strategy of vaccinating all poultry with an inactivated (dead-virus), oil-emulsion H5N1 vaccine, there have been no additional cases in humans and no reported H5N1 infections in chickens.But in September 2006, H5N1 was reported to have emerged in ducks and geese in Vietnam, the report says.”Thus, H5N1 influenza vaccine seems to protect chickens, and indirectly, humans, but probably not waterfowl,” the writers state. The pair hypothesize that this could be the reason why H5N1 is not under control in China.”Clearly we must prepare for the possibility of an influenza pandemic,” the article concludes. “If H5N1 influenza achieves pandemic status in humans—and we have no way to know whether it will—the results could be catastrophic.”Comments from the Editor-in-Chief:Over recent months the No. 1 question that I am asked by many in the media and the general public goes something like this: “So, we don’t have to worry about that bird flu scare anymore . . . do we?” This perspective article by Webster and Govorkova should be required reading for each one of these questioners. It very clearly details why we should be even more concerned about the possibility of H5N1 causing the next pandemic than we were several years ago. It is a straightforward, balanced assessment of the current situation and is written so that every CEO can understand the message.
Method #3 BoraxMix one cup of Borax with a gallon of water.Borax can be found at most stores and is an effective weapon against tough bathroom mold.use a brush and the solution to scrub the area.Rinse and dryThese are just a couple of ways to rid yourself of mold but they have worked well for us. If you have any other questions about cleaning please visit Maid Perfect. We love answering questions and we love to clean. Facebook6Tweet0Pin1Submitted by Drew Freemantle for Maid PerfectOne of the most common places to find mold is in our bathrooms. Mold needs a moisture, heat and organic materials containing carbon to grow. Our bathrooms provide the perfect environment for mold to thrive.Preventing Mold in The BathroomEliminate the sources of humidity and moisture for mold to survive.Make sure that you keep floors, countertops, showers dry because mold can begin to form within 24- 48 hours if the conditions are right.Reduce the bathroom moisture by drying your clothes right after you wash them.Get in the habit of always using the bathroom fan.Check every once in a while for leaky faucets and shower heads.Reduce humidity by keeping your home well ventilated.Get a dehumidifier if you have a bad humidity problem.Three Ways to Get Rid of MoldSimple white vinegar is one of the best, and least toxic, ways to eliminate mold.Method #1 VinegarFill a spray bottle with white vinegar and spray the tile, grout, ceramic surfaces liberally and let it sit for 1 to 2 hours.Rinse and scrub the mold with a damp microfiber clothMake a paste of 3 parts baking soda to 1 part water and use a stiff toothbrush for stubborn grout. Rinse and repeat if necessary.Method #2 Hydrogen PeroxidePut hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle and spray the affected area.Leave peroxide on surface for 10 – 20 minutesScrub area with a brushRinse
Geocacher of the MonthThe nominees for the May Geocacher of the Month deliver geocaches that wow geocachers on three continents. From Canada to Europe to Australia they deliver creative geocaches based on Snow White, Reindeer and some that even require batteries. Each geocacher named below is already a winner. They will receive a prize package from Geocaching HQ. A panel of folks from Geocaching HQ will then use your comments to help guide the decision of which geocacher is awarded the Geocacher of the Month honor.Each Featured Geocacher of the Month will receive an exclusive special edition Featured Geocacher of the Month Geocoin, hat and profile icon. They’ll also get a certificate acknowledging their contributions, signed by two of the founders of Geocaching.MulderNScully – April 2013 Geocachers of the MonthIn April, MulderNScully were named the Featured Geocachers of the Month. MulderNScully have been geocaching since 2008. They’re known for challenging geocachers with inventive Puzzle Geocaches. One geocacher who commented about MulderNScully wrote, “They have been mentors to many new cachers and are always willing to give a helping hand to a fellow cacher and some of my most memorable caching adventures are because of them. They aren’t about the numbers, they are about the places geocaching takes us to.”Now it’s your turn to help us select the next Featured Geocacher of the Month. Write a supportive comment at the bottom of this blog for the geocacher you feel should be awarded the title.Here are your nominees for the May Featured Geocacher of the Month. Some testimonials have been edited for length.Pele53Pele53 – Geocacher of the Month NomineeGöran “McBack” Back nominated Esko Aspholm alias “Pele53.” Pele53 has won several awards for best geocaches, and hosted regular Event Caches throughout 2012 and into 2013. McBack says one series in Finland demonstrates Pele53’s geocaching ingenuity. McBack says, “He has made many caches with a lot of work behind them. He had 4 nightcaches, with a lot of work behind, with the theme Snowwhite and the seven dwarfs. The first of them is the house where they live, where Sleepy and Snowwhite is, the second was The hunters cabin, the third The princes castle and the last was the mine where the rest of the dwarfs where. The whole trail was tracked by “diamonds” in the forest, just in case Snowwhite had to find them. The first of these actually won the Ostrobothnian best other cache 2011.One of the latest mystery “Eihän tässä ole mitään järkeä!” (translated like “After all, this makes no sense!”) that was voted the best cache of 2012 in Finland. This has also been mentioned in magazines and even the local radio station. It needs something special to be opened, that many of us has with us when geocaching. But with about 20 geocachers at site for the First to Find hunt, they needed to call help to get it opened. =D So many of his caches are made with lot of work, and he still have many ideas to new caches.” Share with your Friends:More roymercroymerc – nominee for Geocacher of the MonthPeter Dose, TeamDose nominated, roymerc. He says, “Roymerc may be the best “cache placer” in Western Australia. We have travelled from the far North down to the deep South of WA, and when we came across Roy’s cache’s in the Denmark area, we knew we had found something special. He puts an exceptional amount of time and effort into the design and creation of these cache masterpieces – and as a result has attracted a large number of favourite points. There is not one of Roy’s active caches which do not have at least 1 favourite point – fairly unique we would think in the caching world.Each cache is unique and special in its own way. Some of the caches involve electricity, other of the caches involve complex machinery. Roy’s “Bring Your Own Battery” series is also unique, and has inspired copies further afield in places like Perth.Denmark is a very beautiful part of Australia, and with Roy living there it is also extra special for all geocachers. We think roymerc is awesome, and so do many other cachers judging by the number of favourite points he has accumulated in such a remote part of the world! For these reasons, we believe he deserves to be recognised as a cacher of the month!” OHMICOhmic – Geocacher of the Month NomineeJosh Bernier (username Stonagal) nominates OHMIC. He says, “With close to 15,000 finds, Jacques, OHMIC has found more geocaches than any other geocacher in the Canadian province of Manitoba. He has more than 130 published caches, over six cache types. But the biggest reason I think he should be the Geocacher of the Month is because of the great work he has done in providing quality events for local geocachers. OHMIC is an interpreter at the Oak Hammock Marsh. For the past seven years, he has hosted an event in May called “Cache the Marsh“. Geocachers split into teams and explore the Interpretive Centre’s numerous exhibits to get clues as to the locations of several caches. It’s a mad race for some new FTFs, and along the way cachers learn about wetlands ecosystems and wildlife. It’s a great family-friendly competitive event that ends with a barbecue. This was the seventh year OHMIC has planned and hosted the event, and it lived up to the great things I had heard other cachers say about it. OHMIC is also a Platinum-level Earthcache Master, and the owner of a local favourite series of caches named for Santa’s reindeer.” SharePrint RelatedAnnouncing the April 2013 Geocacher of the MonthMay 20, 2013In “Community”Geocacher of Month Nominees for April 2013 – Add Your CommentsApril 25, 2013In “Community”Announcing the May 2013 Geocacher of the MonthJune 18, 2013In “Community” Comment below to tell us who you think should be the May Featured Geocacher of the Month.

There was a blog here a few months back about PDF/A, a version of Adobe’s PDF file format that is intended to be used for long-term document archival. AIIM recently updated their FAQ about PDF/A, and it provides good information.One interesting capability included as part of PDF/A (ISO 19005-1) is that it includes Adobe XMP Metadata. Adobe announced XMP in September, 2001 and currently Adobe uses the technology in all component products of their Adobe Create Suite. The concept of XMP is similar to how Microsoft Office products automatically capture and allow the assignment of metadata to files being authored. The basis for XMP is in the W3C’s Resource Description Framework (RDF). Metadata embedded directly into files allow files to be ‘self-describing’, and embedded metadata can help you easily file, locate, identify and distinguish between similarly named files.Automatic embedding of metadata into files by capture devices like scanners and digital cameras is fairly standard. Usually information like date/time, height, width and file format are saved. Cameras typically embed data according to the Exchangable Image File Format (EXIF), a format modeled after the tag structure of TIFF files. (The TIFF format was created by Aldus which was later acquired by Adobe Systems). EXIF tag data includes camera setting information like F-Stop, focal length and shutter speed. Some newer cameras are embedding GPS location information too.Beyond the automatically captured EXIF metadata, Adobe XMP also allows users to embed additional information like source, headline and instructions.The upside of being able to embed metadata in files is that it allows information like keywords, version information, captions, format information, creation and modification dates, and other file information to be tagged. For example, graphic files used on a web site might contain embedded copyright information and originating URL. And when used in conjunction with a workflow, the state of the document can be kept as part of the metadata that automatically flows alongs with the file, across networks and via email. This is interesting because a single file could be treated as a self-contained packet of workflow information where embedded metadata describes the state of the document within the workflow. Participation in a workflow could be then reduced to the capability of simply being able to read and update embedded file metadata.There are a lot of positives for using embedded metadata as a tool to assit workflow. But while embedded file metadata can enable more flexible workflow, letting files and documents flow into and out of the control of a central workflow system can make it more difficult to track the location and state of a task and also to validate metadata changes. The repository used with the workflow system would need to continually synchronize its metadata with the embedded file metadata. But the biggest problem is still the lack of adoption of XMP or other technologies for embedding file metadata by software application vendors, unless you’ve standardized on dealing only with PDF or other Adobe file formats.Using embedded file metadata also brings along with it additional security issues. Files containing embedded metadata when exported and destined for public consumption may need to be stripped of personal or confidential information stored as metadata.
In Canada, private and public interests are working on a common problem: How to build net-zero energy housing that average homebuyers can afford.Asked by officials in the government’s ecoEnergy Innovation Initiative for some new ideas on how to encourage energy efficient building, a company called buildABILITY Corp. put together a program in which five separate builders were invited to tackle the net-zero problem in whatever way they chose. As a result, single-family homes and condominiums are going up in five cities in four provinces as builders work with their own consultants to produce affordable net-zero energy houses in their respective markets.Natural Resources Canada chipped in $2 million from the national $278 million ecoEnergy program. (All costs in this article are in Canadian dollars.)Owens Corning Canada provided insulation products for free, and builders themselves came up with in-kind contributions that equaled the government’s ante, says buildABILITY president Michael Lio. The net-zero houses, all of which must be completed by next March, will be sold privately after the government double-checks to make sure they really will produce as much energy as they use.The larger goal of the Owens Corning Net Zero Housing Community Project is to help production builders figure out how net-zero building practices can become part of their regular repertoires.“We’ve been talking about it for a long time,” Lio said recently. “There have been lots of net-zero buildings that have been constructed both in the U.S. and in Canada, but there haven’t been many activities that focused on production builders, and even fewer on affordability. So at the heart of this project is to work with large production tract builders to bring them to net-zero and have them change net-zero so it’s more affordable for their customers, to simplify it and drop it into their assembly-line processes.” Builders find common groundBuilders are working independently. There’s no central agency directing their work, and there’s no common script they have to follow. Even so, Lio says, builders have settled on very similar approaches. “The technologies are off the shelf,” he says, “very accessible.”Some of the common building characteristics:Grid-tied photovoltaic systems for on-site renewable energy, with arrays averaging about 10 kilowatts.Exterior walls with R-values between 38 and 44. Wood-framed walls have cavity insulation of fiberglass batts and an exterior wrap of extruded polystyrene rigid insulation between 2 and 3 inches thick.Airtightness, measured with a blower door, of 1.5 air changes per hour, or lower, at a pressure difference of 50 pascals.Triple-pane windows.Although some builders have chosen small-output furnaces, many others are using cold-climate air-source heat pumps.Heat pump water heaters.Interior polyethylene vapor barriers.Attics insulated with batts or blown in fiberglass to a range of R-50 to R-70. Roof framing consists of raised-heel trusses that allow extra insulation above perimeter walls.Lio says the units have fairly small heating loads (most of the projects are located in Climate Zone 6). Half the 10 kW output of the PV arrays are on average used for base electric loads, Lio says, with one quarter devoted to space heating and the balance to domestic hot water.Builders will sell the houses at market rates, Lio says, but because of program restraints they won’t be allowed to make a profit on building components that contribute to net-zero operation. Construction costs are similarA total of 26 housing units are underway, ranging from one-bedroom condos to single-family houses. Floor areas run from 750 to 3,000 square feet. They’re being constructed in Laval, Quebec; the Ottawa suburb of Kanata; Calgary, Alberta; Halifax, Nova Scotia; and Guelph, Ontario, just to the west of Toronto. Lio says land prices vary widely, but construction costs are similar across the country. Single-family houses will probably be listed in the $500,000 range.The incremental cost of getting to net-zero on a single-family is looking like $60,000 to $80,000, Lio says, a 12% to 16% premium over the cost of a conventional house. Lio says it’s too soon to know whether Canadian homebuyers will be willing to pay it.“I think that as a full-on market initiative, we’re really early,” Lio says. “I suspect there will be some homebuyers who have an eye on innovation, who want to be the very first to adopt a particular technology and will certainly buy these houses.“We’ve seen dramatic shifts in the pricing on some of these systems, particularly on-site generation, and as some of these systems become even more affordable and builders start to adopt the technology in volume, then it would be appropriate to have a conversation about what the market would bear. Right now, it’s conjecture. Prices are high, numbers are low, and it’s really unfair to talk about would someone be willing to dish out $80,000.” Building on a Canadian traditionCanada has a long history of high-performance building and introduced its R-2000 program in the early 1980s. As Lio points out, standards typically become more demanding as time passes.“The R-2000 is in many regards the springboard for these net-zero houses,” he says. “R-2000 is an energy standard but it doesn’t include on-site generation. These net-zero houses not only demonstrate the new type of energy efficiency that’s embedded in the R-2000 standard but it takes that next leap and embeds on no-site renewables.“That’s the real difference,” he adds. “It’s a continuum. We’ve been at it for a long time and we’ve made lot of mistakes along the way, but it’s pretty obvious that there’s this continuum and these programs that are voluntary eventually become the stuff of code minimums.”
