Sime Darby has been operating in Sinjeh District in Bomi County and some parts of Grand Cape Mount County since 2010.-Promise additional 2,500 hectaresSime Darby Plantation Liberia (SDPL) continues to attract citizens of its operational counties and beyond as evidenced by appeal from some residents of Goblah Clan in Klay District, Bomi County.They have therefore called for the extension of the company’s operations into their district. The citizens made the appeal over the weekend when they unanimously agreed to invite the SDPL’s management to observe the area and reason to exten into their district by cultivating more palm trees.The company has been operating in Sinjeh District in Bomi County and some parts of Grand Cape Mount County since 2010. The development is part of the company’s 63-year concession agreement signed with the Liberian government to cultivate 220 hectares of palm.Since its establishment in 2009, the Malaysian company has strived to positively impact the lives of Liberians in the region through health, education, infrastructure and other basic social services including safe drinking water.However, as part of efforts to feel the generosity of the company, Goblah Clan residents over the weekend invited the general manager, Ali Kamal, to dialogue with him for the possible expansion. One of the prominent citizens who spoke on behalf of the residents, said after carefully following the works of the company for the past years, they have realized that the management means well for the people of the region and Liberia in general.According to Abdullah Navoo, based on consensus, citizens invited the general manager and his team to discuss how they can move into the clan as part of extension program.Navoo said during their meeting, they discussed the out-grower scheme and the availability of over 2,500 hectares of carbon free land they have agreed to give to the company.Out-grower scheme is a contractual partnership between growers or landholders and a company for the production of commercial forest products. Out-grower schemes or partnerships vary considerably in the extent to which inputs, costs, risks and benefits are shared between growers/landholders and companies.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
0Shares0000“We play at home in [the second leg] in a game we want to win. We have to win to qualify for the final, so let’s do the job.LONDON, United Kingdom, Jan 11 – Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was mostly happy with what he saw in Wednesday’s 0-0 draw against Chelsea in the League Cup semi-finals.Neither side was able to find the net at Stamford Bridge, leaving the tie wide open for the second leg at the Emirates Stadium in a fortnight. “I felt that we performed well, it was a very intense game where we were very well organised and had a great solidarity in the team,” Wenger told his club’s official website.“We are used to scoring, of course, so we are a bit frustrated we didn’t score, but overall I think the team performance was very positive and very good.“We play at home in [the second leg] in a game we want to win. We have to win to qualify for the final, so let’s do the job.“Overall I believe that it is, of course, a good opportunity for us to go to Wembley where we want to go, but we know that Chelsea are a dangerous side, so that is why it is important until then that we win our Premier League games and prepare after.”After goalless stalemates against the Blues and Norwich City in recent weeks, the latter coming in the FA Cup, the Gunners return to Premier League action against Bournemouth on Sunday.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Ryan MartinNo change in our forecast pattern this morning, we still see more wet days than dry over the coming 10 days, and this unsettled pattern does not look like it comes to an end until late next week.Rains today are mostly a southern affair, but we have to watch east central and northeast Ohio for a little bit of northern movement through midday and early afternoon, allowing the spread of moisture that direction. We also think there is more rain around today, and we will bump our rain totals up a bit to a few hundredths to half an inch. Coverage will be 90% south of I-70, and 30% north. NW Ohio likely sees nothing today.Tomorrow is our first dry day for the state. We should see good sunshine and temps above normal.Moisture moves back into the state on Friday and lasts through Monday. Combined we see rain totals of .25”-1.25” over the entire state. Coverage on any given day will be likely 50-60% at best…but for the 4 day period, we all see rain on several occasions.Tuesday and Wednesday will be mostly dry, our second and third (also final) dry day of the 10day period the state. Our next wave shows up overnight Wednesday, the 23rd and hits most of Ohio through the 24th. That system brings .1”-.6” over the state, with coverage at 70% of the state.High pressure comes in behind that system for the 25th, and will bring several drier days in succesion. This will be needed to facilitate good dry down from this wet 10 day outlook. Temps will be normal to above normal through the next 9-10 days, but as the ahigh comes in, we may stay closer to normal, even though we see good sun. The map below is a look at 10 day cumulative totals. These are much more in line with our thoughts this time around.
IBM Global Technology Services forecasts explosive growth in worldwide storage requirements in a July 2006 white paper called “The Toxic Terabyte: How Data-Dumping Threatens Business Efficiency”. The document is an interesting read and has some statistics, some of which verge on being amazing.For example, the paper starts with the observation that in 2006, 26,000 million million transitors will be pumped out by electronics manufacturers worldwide, more they claim, than all the grains of rice grown on earth in 2006.The report attributes the explosive growth of storage to the proliferation of computer transitors and chips that operates on Moore’s Law. Basically there are more chips running, more data being processed, and more data being stored.The report goes on to report incredible numbers for how fast data will grow, although it doesn’t try to assign any weight to the importance to the kinds of data that’s being amassed. For example, billions of processors logging transaction statistics every millisecond might be creating massive amounts of uncompressed historical information, but that data may serve no real purpose. From the report:It is projected that just four years from now, the worlds information base will be doubling in size every 11 hours. So rapid is the growth in the global stock of digital data that the very vocabulary used to indicate quantities has had to expand to keep pace. A decade or two ago, professional computer users and managers worked in kilobytes and megabytes. Now schoolchildren have access to laptops with tens of gigabytes of storage, and network managers have to think in terms of the terabyte (1,000 gigabytes) and the petabyte (1,000 terabytes). Beyond those lie the exabyte, zettabyte and yottabyte, each a thousand times bigger than the last.The toxic side of having all of this data is that searching through all of it becomes ever more difficult. Even with today’s plummeting storage costs and shrinking physical size of storage units, the report suggests that some analysts are worried that ultimately we will have so much data that we won’t be able to afford or create enough storage devices to hold all of it.
