Still lots of road ahead For proponents of EVs, automakers big investments in the sector provide reason for optimism, but there still a lot of ground to make up. Dennis DesRosiers, an analyst with DesRosiers Automotive Consultants, noted North America has had electrified vehicles for years now, but they still only make up a small percentage of the overall market. Last summer, the Paris based International Energy Agency estimated that electric car sales will account for about three per cent of global car sales in 2020.
FAFSA could become graduation requirement: In an effort to boost college enrollment among low income and minority students, Lamont will propose legislation that would make completion of federal student financial aid forms a high school graduation requirement, among other measures. The governor previewed the legislative proposal Thursday along with other measures that include an automatic admission program at the state’s four regional universities for students who meet select criteria. “K 12 by itself is not enough, not in this incredibly competitive world and the sophistication of the jobs that are out there right now,” Lamont said.
The rover will set the samples aside for retrieval by a fetch rover launching in 2026. Under an elaborate plan still being worked out by NASA and the European Space Agency, the geologic treasure would arrive on Earth in the early 2030s. Scientists contend it’s the only way to ascertain whether life flourished on a wet, watery Mars 3 billion to 4 billion years ago.
If something is missing in the case, and a customer wants it, well you have to stop and go to the freezer to find it. It gets pretty busy when customers come and ask you to do things, like slice bread and you are by yourself with cake orders, and in the middle of decorating a cake and you have to stop, to write happy stuff on their cake and answer phone calls. I find that with just one cake decorator it can get pretty hectic.
All three directed mineralisation towards hydroxyapatite in a peptide concentration dependent manner. CaP(V) was most effective at inducing hydroxyapatite formation at higher reagent levels (Ca2+ = 200mM), as also seen with peptide silk chimeric materials, whereas CaP(S) was most effective when lower concentrations of calcium (20mM) and phosphate were used. The approach can be extended to investigate HAP mineralisation in the presence of any number of mineralisation promoters or inhibitors..
Medomsley Detention Centre was a prison for young male offenders before its closure in 1988From 1960, Medomsley Detention Centre housed young men, aged between 17 and 21, who were detained for relatively minor offences, before closing in 1988.Whilst there, inmates were subjected to a brutal regime of physical violence and sexual abuse; two notorious members of the Medomsley staff, Neville Husband and Lesley Johnson, were jailed for serious sexual offences in 2003 and 2005.In 2013, Durham police reopened investigations into the historical abuse of young inmates in Medomsley, which became known as Operation Seabrook.Over 1,800 former detainees gave evidence to the police detailing the physical and sexual abuse they had suffered at the hands of former prison officers.Speaking at Prime Minister’s Question Time, Laura Pidock, the then MP for North West Durham, said: “Medomsley Detention Centre in my constituency was a living hell for the boys and young men sent there from across the UK in the 70s and 80s. Rape and torture were commonplace.”The culmination of Operation Seabrook led to the conviction of five further prison officers for physical abuse with a trial of two further officers pending.Compensation for former affected inmates As a consequence of the convictions in the wake of Operation Seabrook, a steering group of solicitors who represent the majority of the victims were able to establish a compensation scheme with lawyers representing the Ministry of Justice.This scheme has created a quick and easy route to enable former inmates to obtain a financial award as a form of redress for their suffering.As is often the case, compensation settlement schemes are time limited and once the deadline has passed, no further claims will be accepted under the scheme. Up until now, a cut off date has not been agreed between the solicitor steering group and those representing the Ministry of Justice.Patrick Rafferty, senior partner at McKeag and Co Solicitors of Newcastle and a member of the solicitor steering group, has recently been in discussions with solicitors from the government’s legal department.It is his understanding that solicitors will be meeting with government representatives in the very near future and will thereafter have a meeting with the solicitor steering group in an attempt to agree a cut off date.Under the circumstance, it is strongly advised that any former inmates of Medomsley Detention Centre take steps to immediately register a claim.
