More staff artificial flooding among plans to save Wood Buffalo National Park

first_imgOTTAWA — The federal government intends to save the international heritage status of Canada’s largest national park by increasing staffing, better monitoring the tailings from the oil sands, and artificially recreating spring flooding to rejuvenate the park’s waterways.Today’s plan comes nearly two years after the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization warned Wood Buffalo National Park was at risk of being declared in danger as a world-heritage site because it wasn’t being properly managed.That warning was the result of complaints made to the United Nations by the Mikisew Cree First Nation, which believes climate change, hydro dams and the oil sands are having catastrophic effects on the park’s ecosystem.Mikisew spokeswoman Melody Lepine says the biggest question mark over the park’s future is whether the government will put the resources in to save it.Last year’s federal budget included a $1.3-billion, five-year investment in national parks, and in July, $27.5 million of that was earmarked for Wood Buffalo.Wood Buffalo National Park covers 45,000 square kilometres of forests, wetlands and grasslands that straddles the border of Alberta and the Northwest Territories and is home to the largest free roaming wood-bison herd, the last breeding ground for whooping cranes and one of the largest inland river deltas in the world.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

From reluctant Taoiseach to reluctant exTaoiseach What is Endas political legacy

first_imgFrom reluctant Taoiseach to reluctant ex-Taoiseach: What is Enda’s political legacy? First elected over 40 years ago, it’s been some journey for the Mayo man. Source: Alan Kinsella/Twitter 31,776 Views Tuesday 13 Jun 2017, 8:25 AM Share358 Tweet Email4 Subscribe for more videos While Fine Gael’s support for marriage equality was clear, it was noteworthy that much of the actual campaigning for the Yes vote was driven by LGBT and rights groups rather than political parties.Referendums are frequently used by voters to tell the government of the day how they feel and there was a sense during the 2015 campaign that advocates and politicians alike were keen to keep the issue to the fore.Kenny perhaps partly fell victim to this in 2013 when the referendum on abolishing the Seanad was defeated.The proposal was not a universally loved one by politicians and was very closely associated with Kenny himself. Its defeat left him with a bloody nose that would have been much worse had same-sex marriage not been passed.Abortion is another social issue that Kenny at least partly dealt with in a way that the governments which preceded him did not.The passing of the Protection of Life during Pregnancy Act legislated for the Supreme Court decision in the X Case, 21 years after the ruling was made. Lucinda Creighton left Fine Gael during Kenny’s first term as Taoiseach. Source: Sasko Lazarov/Photocall IrelandKenny’s determination to proceed with it cost Fine Gael some high-profile parliamentarians and again demonstrated his resolve. Renua, the party that was formed as a direct result of that debate, has also been floundering.Furthermore, while the ultimate consequence of the Citizens’ Assembly are far from clear, there is at least a momentum that will likely see an abortion referendum next year.Re-electionAs already touched upon, Kenny’s re-election as Taoiseach was historic for his party, but it was far from clearcut.The public’s electoral judgement on his first term as Taoiseach was to strip the party of 16 seats and to resuscitate Fianna Fáil just one cycle after they’d lashed them at the polls.Kenny was visibly disappointed on election night and questions over the future of his leadership were splashed over the front pages again.Again though, demonstrating a doggedness that once seemed alien but now seems characteristic, Kenny proved the doubters wrong Enda Kenny at the count centre in Castlebar. Source: TheJournal.ieIt took four nominations and votes before he was officially returned and elected Taoiseach for the second time.In the 70 days between that day and the election day, Irish politics was transformed with a deal that saw Fine Gael govern as a minority party with the qualified support of Fianna Fáil.The judgement on that arrangement is still pending but the one thing that is for sure is that Kenny has presided over it for longer than most expected.The reluctance of his would-be successors to wield the axe shows both the respect for what he’s achieved and also the knowledge that previous efforts to unseat him have been met with canny resistance.

Kenny’s stock was falling correspondingly.But the haphazard attempts to actually unseat and replace Kenny failed and the disorganisation allowed him to take the initiative in the battle.As well as publicly sacking Richard Bruton, a TV blitz from the leader and some backroom cajoling from both Kenny and Phil Hogan left the would-be conspirators with nowhere to go. Source: RTÉKenny’s survival and his decisive actions in seeing off the challenge did a number of things for him.Firstly, it ensured he’d lead Fine Gael into the coming general election. Secondly, it demonstrated a steely side that perhaps the public needed to see.Seven months and a €80 billion bailout for Ireland later, Kenny was facing into his second general election as Fine Gael leader. This time, such was the political situation, he was almost certain to be Taoiseach.Knowing the party was being presented with the biggest open goal an opposition could hope for, Fine Gael seemed determined not to blow its chance.The frequently ridiculed but ultimately successful ‘Five Point Plan’ message delivered ad nauseam by Kenny during that period will almost certainly be the public’s greatest takeaway of Kenny the campaigner.In part because it encapsulates a difficulty in connecting with the wider public on any level beyond that of a competent team leader.But even if it was robotic, it worked. The plan’s focus on economic management came at a time when the Irish public were ready to accept any perceived misgivings – so long as the ship was righted. Source: Fine Gael/YouTubeIn officeKenny’s first years as Taoiseach were perhaps both bolstered and hampered by the all-seeing eye of the Troika.The periodic visits here by a joint IMF, ECB and EU delegation became a strange routine that Irish people became used to.The government walked a tightrope between implementing the agreed austerity and appearing too deferential to Ireland’s bailout masters.During this period, Kenny took some of the most direct criticism from opposition politicians for not arguing more vociferously for Ireland on the European stage. This photo of Enda Kenny with then French President Nicolas Sarkozy followed the Taoiseach for years.The oft-repeated plea to ‘burn the bondholders’ became a frequent political cry each time the Irish State repaid a multi-billion repayment to unsecured bondholders.Even the head of the Troika’s mission to Ireland was forced to eventually admit that he felt it was unfair to make Irish taxpayers pay such debts.But Kenny and his loyal Finance Minister Michael Noonan persisted with this strategy and they will claim success on a number of fronts, foremost of which was the departure of Ireland from the Troika programme itself.Deals to lengthen the period over which Ireland repays bank debts and the renegotiation of terms with the Troika were also heralded to save billions.Added to this were unemployment figures that have continued to fall and the intangible fact that Kenny’s adherence to EU wishes may have built up credit for Ireland that is now much needed in Brexit negotiations. Kenny pictured with then Irish football manager Giovanni Trapattoni in Mayo. Source: RTÉBut all of this came at a cost. One of the Troika’s stipulations was the introduction of a water charge regime and the issue came to dominate the latter part of Kenny’s first government.The opposition to water charges became the touchstone issue for the wider opposition to swingeing austerity and Kenny’s government bore the brunt as people took to the streets.These issues continue to this day. Anti-water-charge protest in Dublin. Source: PA ImagesThere were other challenges too.Early in Kenny’s first term the publication of the Cloyne report detailed and exposed how church authorities had dealt with allegations of abuse in the Cork diocese.The Taoiseach’s strong response to the report and a Dáil speech in which he directly challenged the Vatican made people stand up and take notice, in Ireland and abroad.The backbone Kenny had shown in extinguishing the heave against him was transferred to the Dail chamber where the Catholic Church was challenged by a Taoiseach in a manner not seen before.The Vatican was even forced to respond to Kenny’s speech and his contribution remains the most powerful he made during his time as leader. Source: RTÉ – IRELAND’S NATIONAL PUBLIC SERVICE MEDIA/YouTubeReferendum timeDespite overseeing the introduction of divorce during its previous stint in government, Fine Gael had long been seen as socially conservative.But Kenny’s first government oversaw a number of significant social changes, one of which bore significant political costs for his party.While Labour reasonably argues that the impetus for the same-sex marriage referendum can from their side of the coalition, Kenny and Fine Gael were nonetheless active and enthusiastic in ensuring it passed.Kenny famously stumbled over a flower pot in 2012 as journalists pushed him on his views on same-sex marriage but once the party’s course was set in favour of marriage equality, Kenny was steadfastly behind it.Some may criticise Kenny’s reticence to support full marriage equality but many world leaders, Barack Obama among them, have spoken about how their view on the issue evolved over time. Even though Kenny’s political career has defied convention in many ways, its beginnings very much fit the standard mould.After the death of his father Henry Kenny TD in 1975, Enda Kenny won the subsequent by-election and was elected to be the youngest member of Dáil Éireann.The elder Kenny was a former All-Ireland winning footballer with Mayo and was also a teacher and principal of a national school in their native Islandeady.Enda Kenny didn’t reach the heights of his father on the GAA pitch but was nonetheless an accomplished footballer in his own right. A corner-forward for Islandeady himself, Kenny has also managed and coached the club and has been named as its honorary president for life.For the first decade after being elected as a TD, Kenny kept a relatively low profile.He only entered the national political arena when appointed as a Minister of State in Department of Education and Labour by Garret FitzGerald in 1986.Fine Gael was removed from power in an election the following year but Kenny managed to hold his seat. He was therefore on the party’s frontbench in opposition and consolidated his position as one of its foremost figures. Enda and Fionnuala Kenny at the Fine Gael Ard Fheis in 2007. Source: Eamonn Farrell/Photocall IrelandIt was during this period that Kenny married his long-time partner Fionnuala. The pair had met about a decade earlier in the corridors of Leinster House when she was working as part of Fianna Fáil’s press team.As the first ever female government press secretary, it’s long been said that Fionnuala’s ambition rubbed off on Kenny and it’s certainly true that their marriage coincided with a period of political success for him.Two years after they married, Kenny helped form the ‘rainbow coalition’ government with Labour and Democratic Left and he became a full minister for the first time in the Department of Tourism.Following this three-year stint in government for Fine Gael, the party suffered a steep electoral decline and it is during this period that Kenny seized his chance to take the leadership.Former Taoiseach John Bruton survived as Fine Gael leader until 2001 when Kenny surprised Irish political observers by putting himself as one of the contenders to take over. Enda Kenny pictured during the European Elections of 2004. Source: RTÉDespite being a minister, he had never been regarded to be interested in the top job and his infamous pledge to “electrify” the party failed to convince. Instead, Fine Gael went for Michael Noonan and ploughed head first into an electoral collapse a year later.The 2002 general election was among the worst in the party’s history and its loss of 23 seats sent it into a wilderness of opposition amid a booming economy.Fine Gael’s front bench suffered some big casualties but crucially Kenny managed to hang on. In the leadership contest that followed, Kenny won out and took on the daunting task of rebuilding the party.In the years that followed, Kenny hit the road and was widely praised within the party for the work he did on the ground.

Source: Mark Stedman/Photocall IrelandBut his public persona remained relatively pedestrian and his first general election as leader in 2007 didn’t really capture the country’s imagination either.The party’s US-inspired ‘Contract for a Better Ireland’ pledge didn’t really connect with the electorate and he failed to deliver any knockout blows in a TV debate with Bertie Ahern.It meant the Drumcondra man won his third straight term as Taoiseach.But the overall result proved to be a blessing in disguise for Kenny. His party closed the gap with Fianna Fail from 50 seats to 26, putting itself in a strong position as the economic storm clouds gathered.

Source: Youtube/RTÉEnda Kenny is expected to resign as Taoiseach later today to be replaced by party colleague Leo Varadkar. This piece, which was originally published on 17 May, looks at what he’ll be remembered for. FROM RELUCTANT TAOISEACH to reluctant ex-Taoiseach, Enda Kenny’s career will go down as a truly exceptional one in Irish politics.When he took the position in 2011 it was the first time Fine Gael had won power in an election in almost 30 years. His re-election five years later was the first time the party had been returned in its history.Both these events followed a decade in which Kenny rebuilt a party that had been decimated by the electoral success of Bertie Ahern’s Fianna Fáil.In short, Kenny delivered for Fine Gael.Throughout that time however, questions persisted about whether this success was built on Kenny’s stewardship of the party or in spite of it.Not that his style was ever destructive, but a general attitude towards him amongst the public – that was at best indifferent – often forced Fine Gael into sidelining him come election time.This internal battle between Kenny as an asset and a liability is one that has been at the centre of his leadership for the past 10 years.It’s what led to the failed coup against him in the summer of 2010 and it’s ultimately hastened his now-confirmed departure.Seven years ago, it was the fear that Kenny was the reason for stagnating poll numbers at a time when the economy and Fianna Fáil were in meltdown.Now, it’s a fear in Fine Gael that the party could be caught out by an election without a new leader in place.With a steely determination that surprised many, Kenny faced down that first failed heave. This time around, he’s also managed to face down would-be challengers long enough to leave somewhat on his own terms.Kenny had said repeatedly that he would not lead his party into another election after two stints as Taoiseach, he’s now managed to stay on further into that second term than many had predicted.Dynasty Short URL Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Mais ceci ne sera qu’un début pour le monde du football puisque l’initiative des stades “verts” a également été exigée par la FIFA pour les prochains mondiaux de 2018 et 2022 qui se tiendront respectivement en Russie et au Qatar. Au Brésil, treize milliards de dollars ont été investis seulement pour mettre en place ce type d’infrastructures. Il faut dire que le calendrier des évènements sportifs est chargé pour le pays qui accueillera successivement la Coupe des confédérations, le Mondial de foot en 2014 et les jeux Olympiques en 2016.

See All Thanks to the advent of fast, easy software updates, the car you left the dealership with might be eligible for an upgrade or two in the future, bringing new features that weren’t part of the initial purchase decision. That’s the case for two Toyota models and software that many folks deem damn near necessary in 2019.Toyota announced last week that two 2018 models are available for a software retrofit that adds both Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa compatibility. Owners of eligible 2018 Toyota Camry sedans and 2018 Toyota Sienna minivans will soon receive word from Toyota, which will encourage them to head to a dealership and have the software added to their vehicles.This will be a huge boon to 2018 buyers, since Toyota announced that many 2019 and most 2020 vehicles will have Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa integration. Alexa compatibility is new, but it allows you to access your Alexa’s capabilities from behind the wheel, making sure your lights are set correctly or any of the other myriad things you can do with Amazon’s assistant. Apple CarPlay is, at this point, a must-have for many buyers, as it allows you to operate your iPhone through a special infotainment-system interface. While some automakers can push these updates over the air, it’ll be up to Sienna and Camry owners to head to a physical dealership for the software update, which shouldn’t take very long to actually install on the car’s head unit. When asked for a cost, Toyota demurred via email, saying that customers should contact dealers for more information, and that there “may be a small service charge for the install.”Originally published April 29, 11:33 a.m. PT.Update, 12:23 p.m.: Updated with manufacturer guidance on update pricing.

FEMA Opens Four Recovery Centers In Harris County To Help Flood Survivors

And then we walk you through the type of assistance that we can help you with, along with SBA and all the other partners around here,” explains Paul Timmons, a liaison with FEMA for the Houston area and Harris County.So far, FEMA has received more than 10,000 applications from Harris County residents.Shauentray Jones is a Houston resident who is looking for help. She has three small children and used to live in one of the Greenspoint apartment complexes that got flooded.Jones works at a restaurant, but says she has lost everything and her only desire at this moment is to get back to normal.“I just need to get me and my family back to where we were. That’s all I’m asking for. I don’t want nothing else, just get me back to where I was before the flood,” she said. The recovery centers are open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m to 6 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.In addition to FEMA representatives, personnel from the U.S. Small Business Administration, SBA, as well as from the state of Texas are also available at these centers.

Police Chief Ends Secret Incentive Program For Officers

first_imgBy Mark F. Gray, Special to the AFRO, mgray@afro.comPrince George’s Police Chief Hank Stawinski put the handcuffs on an unauthorized incentive program that gave officers in one police district compensatory time based on how productive they were.  While the program wasn’t illegal, Stawinski wanted to thwart the perception of impropriety in the department.The program was apparently confined to the Bowie District II station, and was an incentive based program that involved writing citations and earning comp time based upon the number that were filed during a given shift.  According to Stawinski, the unsanctioned arrangement had been going on for approximately six months and officers were rewarded for aggressive citationing.Prince George’s Police Chief Hank Stawinksi revealed he had to discipline two commanders and discontinue a compensatory incentivize-based program they had created in Bowie’s District II. (Courtesy Photo)“Briefly in the last six months, officers who were the most productive would receive 10 hours of compensatory time on a monthly basis,” Stawinski said at a press conference to announce the findings of this internal review. “It’s not the appropriate manner to professionally police in 2019.”This secret incentives practice was executed through a plan where if a patrol squad had eight members and one officer wrote eight citations, another officer wrote seven, another six and going down the line- then the officer who wrote the most would get 10 hours of comp time. The program provided officers who produced the highest number of enforcement actions with compensatory time on a monthly basis.According to Stawinski, the commander and assistant commander of District II station in Bowie had implemented the program for patrol officers without the approval of the chief.  It was meant to incentivize the performance of the officers, it was not based on quotas. Their names of the supervising officers are not being released to the public due to state personnel law.  According to Stawinski, they have accepted discipline and are being transferred to new assignments. It’s not a quota-based system,” Stawinski said.  “I apologize on behalf of this institution if this creates any concern.”The investigation was conducted by the police department’s Internal Affairs Division.  It didn’t reveal any citizen complaints regarding enforcement actions against officers in District II during the undiscovered six months that it was in effect.  Stawinski also said he wasn’t aware of the unauthorized performance incentive program until July 26. Once he learned of the program, he immediately directed the two commanders of District II to discontinue the practice.  The police chief also directed the deputy chiefs to convene their staff to ensure the unauthorized performance program was not being employed elsewhere in the agency.   Stawinski said that he is currently developing a policy that would prohibit any such programs in the future. Further, the department is publishing a policy specifically prohibiting such incentive programs.However, the department has an incentive based program allowing officers to accrue compensatory time,  based on good conduct. The police chief remains a proponent of programs like that because the public can’t conclude that an officer is acting in any official capacity in order to receive the reward.“If an officer hasn’t had any internal affairs complaints, if they haven’t gotten any red-light tickets, they’re eligible to legitimately receive 30 hours of comp time,” Stawinski said.Residents who are concerned about an interaction with a patrol officer in District II are being instructed to contact the office of Inspector General who provides independent oversight of its operations.last_img read more

Sewage Fertilizers Contribute To Coral Death Study Finds

first_imgClose Coral reefs are some of the most vulnerable ecosystems in the world, and environmental stressors such as climate change lead to their bleaching and eventual death.Although the warming planet is, in particular, seen as the major stressor affecting coral reefs, researchers of a new study found another driver of coral degradation that can actually be dealt with.Coral Cover In FloridaFlorida Keys National Marine Sanctuary now has the lowest coral cover in the wider Caribbean region, and researchers of a new study wanted to understand how nitrogen travels from the Everglades to the coral reefs. Armed with 30 years’ worth of Florida Keys and Looe Key Reef data, researchers collected seawater samples during wet and dry seasons as well as seaweed samples for tissue analysis, and also monitored the living corals as well as the seawater salinity, temperature, and nutrient gradients in the area.

Specifically, from 1985 to 1987 and 1996 to 1999, significant coral decline was observed due to heavy rainfall that increased water flow from the Everglades and resulted in the increase of phytoplankton and reactive nitrogen to levels that cause stress and eventual coral-reef death.Nutrient Runoff Killing Coral ReefsSo where is the nutrient runoff killing coral reefs coming from? According to researchers, the land-based nutrient runoff that is resulting in increased nitrogen-phosphorus ratio is coming from improperly treated sewage, fertilizers, and top soil. With increased nitrogen levels from such sources, corals are subjected to phosphorus starvation and their temperature threshold for bleaching decreases.“Our results provide compelling evidence that nitrogen loading from the Florida Keys and greater Everglades ecosystem caused by humans, rather than warming temperatures, is the primary driver of coral reef degradation at Looe Key Sanctuary Preservation Area during our long-term study,” said senior author Brian Lapointe Ph.D. “The good news is that we can do something about the nitrogen problem such as better sewage treatment, reducing fertilizer inputs, and increasing storage and treatment of stormwater on the Florida mainland.”Local Action To Save Coral ReefsWhile climate change is a main player in coral reef death, the study shows that water quality plays a significant part as well. This means that preventing further coral reef death can be achieved by reducing nitrogen runoff through simple steps such as creating proper treatment plants and reducing the use of fertilizers.Simply put, even if coral reef death is a global problem that requires global action, concrete local steps can also be taken to preserve coral reefs.The study is published in Marine Biology.

Keep your pets safe while you are gone

first_imgGoing away for the festive season is very exciting, but don’t forget your responsibilities as a pet owner in the process.1. Arrange with a neighbour or family member to feed and check up on your pets while you are away.2. Have someone house sit for you; in that way your animals still get attention while you’re not there.3. Make sure your yard is closed off properly. You wouldn’t want them wandering into the streets and getting lost, or caught up in a storm.4. Make sure the person looking after your pets has all your preferred vet’s details, just in case of an emergency. 5. Before you leave, make sure there is enough food and water available for your pets.6. Make sure you arrange well ahead of time to have your pets cared for. Don’t wait until last minute!7. The SPCA has boarding facilities available where your pets can stay while you’re not here.8. Self feeders are fine to use if you’re only going away for the weekend, not for longer holidays.9. Don’t leave your pets confined to the house. Leave a small window open so they can get fresh air.10. If your vacation falls over New Years Eve, please make sure the person looking after your pet takes precautions. Advise them to give the pets calming medication to help them relax throughout the noise. WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite last_img read more

India is excited about cruise tourism and is prepa

first_imgIndia is excited about cruise tourism and is preparing an action plan that will be ready in the coming months. During yesterday’s inaugural session of a workshop on ‘Action Plan for Development of Cruise Tourism in India’, chaired by India’s Union Shipping minister Nitin Gadkari, Union Tourism minister Mahesh Sharma said cruise tourism will be a ‘game changer’ for the country, adding that Prime Minister Narendra Modi shared that sentiment and supported initiatives to tap into the tourism potential of the country and cruise tourism.“The arrival of tourists has gone up and India, which was placed on 52nd spot in world tourism and travel index of 2015, has improved its ranking further by 12 notches getting placed at 40th spot in 2017,” Sharma said.Minister Gadkari said that 2018 would be ‘very good for cruise tourism in India.’According to Daily News & Analysis India the Indian government intends to promote cruise shipping and tourism as a ‘project of national importance’ through the coordination of Shipping and Tourism ministries. cruisecruise tourismindialast_img read more

Cabinet underlines importance of research and development

first_imgThe appointment of a national research and innovation council was approved by the cabinet on Tuesday to promote research and entrepreneurship, Finance Minister Harris Georgiades said.He said a series of decisions were taken aimed at strengthening research and innovation for the “development of appropriate conditions which will encourage innovative entrepreneurship.“The phase the Cypriot economy is in today, having faced the most pressing consequences of the crisis, what matters is the expansion of the productive base and today’s decisions serve this purpose,” Georgiades said.Toward that end, a new system for governance for research and innovation has been adopted, which includes the establishment of a National Research and Innovation Council as the advisory body for defining a strategy. The council will be chaired by former health minister Professor Philippos Patsalis. The other members will be announced within the coming weeks, he said.“An equally important institution” the cabinet has decided on, based on practices of other countries such as Israel and the UK, is the institution of a Lead Scientist, the minister said, who will play a coordinating and decisive role in promoting research at national level. Cabinet appointed Kyriakos Kokkinos to the post. Kokkinos has a long professional service in the field of information technology and serves today as Vice President of the Research Promotion Foundation. Complementing this institution, he said, will be the appointment of a coordinator for research and innovation issues in each ministry.The Council of Ministers has also decided to finance all Cypriot research proposals selected by the EU within the framework of the Horizon 2020 projects, he said.He added that two Cypriot proposals, the University of Cyprus’ KIOS Research and Innovation Centre of Excellence and the Research centre on Interactive media, Smart systems and Emerging Technologies (RISE) have already been approved in the first round of the programme with €15m from European funds and with equal funding from national resources.“Another 10 Cypriot proposals are included in the 50 candidate European proposals as a whole, and we are optimistic that others will be selected,” Georgiades said.These proposals, he said, include suggestions covering a broad framework of research initiatives.“We consider the participation of Cypriot proposals as one of the most important forms of promoting research and innovation in our country.”He added that following the approval by parliament last July of a legislative framework on the interconnection of university research with the market, cabinet has approved a differentiated framework of principles “that takes into account precisely the legislative regulations adopted by parliament, so that public universities are able to give even more impetus to their research activity, interconnecting through the establishment of companies, research and scientific expertise to the market.”He said the government will continue to be in touch with the country’s research community to provide further support with new initiatives.You May LikeUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoAngels And EntrepreneursRobert Herjavec Announce Venture Could Make You RichAngels And EntrepreneursUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndo 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

KEO launches light beer

first_imgKEO launched a light beer this week with fewer calories and lower alcohol content than the standard beer, catering to a new kind of market.“This could appeal to athletes, people on a diet, women watching out for their silhouette or even someone who wants to drink a lot of beers but save some calories,” KEO brand manager Yiorgos Georgiou said.Available in both a can and a bottle, it has already hit the supermarket shelves and bars boasting less than 29 calories per 100ml as opposed to the approximately 40 calories in its standard version.As regards to alcohol content, KEO light has 3.5 per cent while the standard one has 4.5 per cent.The taste between the two is no different, Georgiou stipulated noting that the new one “is not lighter in taste but has a smoother finish.”Thus far, the beer has been well received and even though it has only been in the market for a few days it has had “great feedback and reactions from people saying they really liked it. Our immediate clients, which include supermarkets and bars are very excited to feature the beer,” he added.The launch has nothing to do with new lower alcohol levels for driving.It was in October 2014 when the idea was born and the new beer was tested long before the new legislation – passed on April 23 – to reduce the legally acceptable limit from 22 microgrammes to 9 microgrammes.This however, served as a “happy coincidence that will allow people to enjoy at least one beer,” Georgiou said.Looking at the broader market, Carlsberg already offers a non-alcoholic beer for the past three years.“We don’t need to have a light beer as our standard version has 37 calories per 100 ml. With only eight calories difference consumers can enjoy the brand with the full taste,” Carlsberg’s beer brand manager Panayiotis Antoniades said.Those looking to spare themselves the alcohol could always opt for the non-alcoholic version, he added.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.
