UK-based Offshore Wind Consultants (OWC) and German company Multiversum have entered a partnership to provide pre-construction offshore wind measurement services as well as specific advice on fixed and floating LiDAR measurements. L-R: Patrick Schwenk, Project Engineer (OWC), John MacAskill, business development director (OWC), Jakob Grimm, Managing Consultant (Multiversum) and Anne-Katrin Hagel, Associate Partner (Multiversum)“Traditional metocean measurement towers are insufficient to protect the profit margins of modern offshore wind farm developments. At the same time, wind farms must reduce their costs in order to remain competitive,” said John MacAskill, business development director of Offshore Wind Consultants Limited (OWC).“Floating LiDAR technology is established within the offshore sector, offering reliable recording of location-specific data on site, at significantly lower costs. However, there is room for improvement of the correct interpretation and ultimate exploitation of this data. The combination of OWC and Multiversum’s expertise provides a solution to this challenge,” said Detlef Stein, Multiversum’s LiDAR expert.OWC and Multiversum will also focus on services across other phases of offshore wind farm projects, including pre-feasibility, project development, wind farm erection and ongoing offshore maintenance.
Mail Online 26 February 2014It is possible to die as a direct result of smoking cannabis, new research shows. German scientists have identified two people who died purely as a result of smoking the drug. It was previously known that using marijuana could be fatal if it was used in conjunction with other drugs – such as by triggering heart conditions or by causing cancer. However, whether the drug could kill unaided had remained unclear, New Scientist reports. Now, scientists at the University Hospital Düsseldorf in Germany have carried out the first full post mortem examinations on people who have died after using the drug.The team, led by Dr Benno Hartung, carried out 15 examinations. They performed tests including toxicology tests and genetic tests to rule out any other causes of death. They discovered that the deaths of two of the patients could not be put down to anything other than marijuana use. Both of these people were men who had died after their hearts started beating either too fast or too slowly. The researchers believe that this change in heart rhythm – called arrhythmia – was caused by cannabis. The reason they came to this conclusion was that both had smoked the drug within a few hours of their death and neither had any history of heart problems.….David Raynes from the UK National Drug Prevention Alliance told New Scientist: ‘These deaths are rare and will remain rare. The real risks are from long-term effects on the young brain.’ His comment is based on the fact that previous studies have shown a link between smoking cannabis and schizophrenia and depression.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2568326/Smoking-cannabis-CAN-kill-German-researchers-identify-two-men-died-purely-result-using-drug.html

A group of Liberians residing in the US have established the Benjamin Karmon Sehkar Foundation Incorporated (BKS).The BKS Foundation, as it is affectionately known, has been established in memory of the late Benjamin K. Sehkar. Benjamin was a broadcast journalist, who in 1990 and at the height of the Liberian Civil War was killed by Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) soldiers during a popular uprising against the Samuel Kanyon Doe government. BKS will be headquartered in Monrovia, Liberia.The Foundation was established with a focus on providing tuition assistance to disadvantaged and underprivileged children as well as students from the rural parts of Liberia; with Nimba County being the primary target.The idea grew out of the heartbroken and scary news in Liberia relatives to the deaths of those who have succumbed to the deadly Ebola virus disease (EVD).“All of us then realized the scary and truth of the EVD killer virus hitting close to home—Nimba County with reference to the Town of Nyor-Butuo, near the Buutuo Headquarters; just a stone throw from the Liberia/Ivorian border towns of Douhuba and Benhouwen. Knowing how poor our hometown is, and fearing the worst; our family in the USA and Liberia went scrambling, trying to come up with solutions, thereby establishing the BKS Foundation, Inc through which most of the assistance would come,” G. Alvin Sehkar, a senior founding member disclosed in a dispatch.Meanwhile, as the fight to contain the Ebola virus continues, the BKS Foundation in collaboration with its partners has decided to take the fight to Ebola.Based on that, the BKS Foundation has for the past few weeks, successfully completed the training of 50 individuals in the Buu-Yao District, Nimba County as part of the fight.The training, the dispatch said, was mainly conducted in the local dialect thus attracting the participants to the messages.There are future prudent projects we are considering. One of those projects would include the provision of BKS scholarships to students at all the major universities in and around Liberia.BKS Foundation mission is to provide the means and access to good, reasonable and quality education for children of underprivileged and disadvantage communities in Liberia.To that, each founding member is therefore committed to providing educational opportunities to every child in Liberia regardless the constraints while teaching them the word of God.The vision is to one day realize a Liberia in which children from all over the country, have equal access to quality education in this era of global competitiveness. The members are envision a Liberia in which children from these disadvantage and underprivileged parts of our society would receive quality education in a safe, constructive, and well-staffed educational facilities. The vision is based Ecclesiastes 7:12, “For the protection of wisdom is like the protection of money, and the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the life of him who has it.”We carefully monitor and review programs and costs, use donations and grants for their intended purposes, and look for ways to leverage funds for maximum impact. Stewardship is an integral part of everything we do — because we recognize that every resource entrusted to us can transform real children’s lives. All of our executives are educated, trustworthy, and many of them own their businesses.The BKS Foundation, Inc. will be providing scholarships to qualified and selected to students to all major universities and colleges in Liberia next academic school year. About Benjamin Karmon Sehkar Born and raised in Nyor Butuo, Nimba County, the North-Central portion of Liberia, Benjamin Sehkar served as a reporter at the ELWA radio station from 1983 to 1990 rising to the position of Assistant Gio (Dan) Program Director. His passion and love for education was exceptional with a dream to help the underprivileged children in his home town and region with access to affordable and quality education.After his untimely death, his dream was temporarily delayed. Alvin Sehkar, a son of Benjamin Sehkar, decided to further his father’s legacy by founding the BKS Foundation, Inc. in 2013. The BKS Foundation is currently in the process of obtaining the 501c (3) Tax exempt status in the USA.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
