Powder River Basin coal production continues falling

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global Market Intelligence ($):Coal mines in the Powder River Basin bounced back from the rain-soaked second quarter, increasing production 18.9% in the third quarter, but still saw year-over-year declines. Ten of the top 16 mines reported production decreases from 2017, lowering the region’s output by 5% to 86.6 million tons, according to data compiled by S&P Global Market Intelligence.Despite reporting a $41.5 million net loss in the third quarter and filing for bankruptcy in October, Westmoreland Coal Co. saw significantly higher production levels at two of its mines in the third quarter than in the second. The Absaloka mine posted a 33.7% production increase, the largest among the basin’s top performers, producing 1.1 million tons. The Rosebud mine, which the company plans to sell alongside its other core assets, saw a 22.4% quarter-over-quarter uptick but the largest year-over-year percentage decline among the top producers with a 29% decrease to 1.8 million tons.The effects of the second-quarter rains carried over into Cloud Peak Energy Inc.’s third-quarter production. The company reported in an Oct. 25 earnings call that the moisture caused instability in its Antelope surface mine’s dragline pits. As miners removed coal from the pits, wet spoil would shift down into the pit and block the coal. CEO Colin Marshall said the company anticipates that fourth-quarter shipments will be constrained but “there’s no reason why Antelope can’t perform the way it should next year.” The pits are expected to “return to their normal cycle” by the end of 2018.Antelope had the second-largest year-over-year production drop during the period, with a 26% decrease to 5.8 million tons. The company’s Spring Creek mine produced 5.3% less coal year over year with 3.7 million tons, and the Cordero Rojo mine’s production dropped 10.5% to 3.4 million tons. All three saw at least a slight improvement over the second quarter’s production levels, with the Antelope mine posting an 18.6% quarter-over-quarter uptick.Peabody Energy Corp.’s North Antelope Rochelle mine, the largest coal mine in the country, posted a 22% uptick from the second quarter to 26 million tons, though levels were down 6.3% from the year-ago period. Its Caballo and Rawhide mines also saw production increases from the second quarter, rising 16.2% to 3.1 million tons and 29.3% to 2.4 million tons, respectively.More ($): Powder River Basin Q3 coal output improves from Q2 but down 5% from year ago Powder River Basin coal production continues fallinglast_img read more

Indian Railways turns to solar to cut coal-fired electricity costs

first_imgIndian Railways turns to solar to cut coal-fired electricity costs FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享PV Magazine:To reduce its annual electricity bill, Indian Railways will soon run trains powered by solar power from arrays of PV cells deployed along electrified tracks in 10 states. The solar power generated will replace 4 GW of coal-fired electricity consumed by the railways, saving the operator 20% of its annual energy bill in the first year and 40% thereafter. Indian Railways currently buys electricity for around INR5 ($0.07) per unit.Developers will recover the installation cost of solar panels and other equipment through the sale of power to the railway operator. Under an agreement with states, there will be a provision to sell surplus power to the local utilities, which will supply equivalent power when Indian Railways needs it.The railway board is examining a project bid document prepared by the Solar Energy Corporation of India which recommends PV electricity from panels be fed through inverters and step-up transformers directly into the 25 kV overhead traction system. That would eliminate the cost of laying separate transmission lines and boost manufacturing of 25 kV single-phase inverters.Around 20 manufacturers, including ABB, Huawei, Delta and Sungrow, are said to be interested in manufacturing the equipment given sufficient demand, according to the Times of India. “This is a historic step towards Indian Railways becoming a net zero emitter by 2030,” railways and coal minister Piyush Goyal told the daily newspaper. “Indian Railways is by far the greenest travel option for transportation.”The government of India is encouraging cash-rich public sector undertakings to set up renewable energy projects. Indian Railways has committed to developing 5 GW of solar by 2025.More: Indian Railways plans to tender 4 GW solar projectlast_img read more

As the transition begins, the stark contrast between Biden and Trump persists.

Posted on November 20, 2020Categories oimdzshwTags , , , , , , , , , , ,   Leave a comment on As the transition begins, the stark contrast between Biden and Trump persists.

first_imgFor months, Joseph R. Biden Jr. campaigned in part on a simple promise: Elect him, and the chaos and confusion, hirings and firings and the unending stream of derisive tweets would end. And in the first workday of the transition, the dichotomy in style between President-elect Biden and President Trump came once again into stark relief.Just minutes after Mr. Biden held a news conference to address his plans for confronting the coronavirus pandemic, Mr. Trump announced on Twitter that he had fired his defense secretary. And he continued to be active on his favorite social media platform on Monday, offering more unsubstantiated and false claims of election fraud, as news broke of additional coronavirus cases within his inner circle, including Ben Carson, the secretary of housing and urban development.- Advertisement – Even as Mr. Biden pressed ahead with his transition plans, the Trump campaign and its allies were continuing their frenetic fight to challenge the results of the election, which Mr. Trump has lost. On Monday, the Trump campaign announced it had filed a lawsuit in Pennsylvania asserting that ballots cast in person there were scrutinized more closely than those sent by mail. – Advertisement – And by the end of the evening, Attorney General William P. Barr had issued a memo authorizing federal prosecutors to investigate some allegations of voter fraud — a move that broke with the Justice Department’s longstanding policies intended to prevent law enforcement from affecting the outcome of an election. The move also prompted the Justice Department official who oversees investigations of voter fraud, Richard Pilger, to step down from his post within hours.The leadership of the Republican Party also joined Mr. Trump in refusing to concede defeat, signaling the potential for a continued struggle in the days and weeks ahead.In his first comments since Mr. Biden was declared the winner of the election, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, argued that the president was “100 percent within his rights” to challenge its outcome.- Advertisement – Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, the Democratic leader, followed Mr. McConnell on the floor and stated simply: “Joe Biden won this election fair and square.”center_img – Advertisement – By contrast, Mr. Biden and his team continued to offer measured statements as they began to sketch out their transition plan and build their team. The president-elect unveiled a 13-person virus-task force while continuing to urge Americans to wear masks and seeking to temper expectations about a virus vaccine that has shown positive early results.“It’s clear that this vaccine, even if approved, will not be widely available for many months yet to come,” Mr. Biden said about a vaccine made by Pfizer. “The challenge before us right now is still immense and growing.”last_img read more

The time is right: COVID-19 gives more room for telemedicine to grow in Indonesia

Posted on October 19, 2020Categories oimdzshwTags , , , , , , , , , , ,   Leave a comment on The time is right: COVID-19 gives more room for telemedicine to grow in Indonesia

first_imgIndonesian Medical Association (IDI) spokesperson Halik Malik said the association fully supported the telemedicine platforms, which is endorsed by the government, in providing health services for the public, especially during the pandemic.”Telemedicine was designed for teleconsultations, but a further physical examination is still needed for diagnosis and treatment,” Halik told The Jakarta Post on Monday. “But at least, it can reduce unnecessary visits to health facilities.”According to Halik, the association encouraged doctors nationwide to provide medical consultations through online platforms so that people can access medical information from home.One of the leading telemedicine platforms in Indonesia, Alodokter, has seen a spike in user traffic in recent months. Read also: Amid pandemic, a turning point for telemedicineAccording to Alodokter partnership vice president Agustine Gunawan, the platform has recorded 61 million web visits and had more than 33 million active users in March. The app has also been downloaded more than 5.5 million and the number of patient-doctor interactions has increased to more than 750,000 last month.”It recorded approximately 1.5 times higher than the usual platform’s traffic before the coronavirus outbreak,” Agustine told the Post on Monday. “However, in comparison to last month, people nowadays are relatively asking about non-coronavirus-related health issues, such as what medicine to take if you feel unwell at home and so forth,” she added.Meanwhile, another app, Halodoc, launched a service on Monday that enables users to make appointments for COVID-19 rapid tests or real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests at 20 hospitals in Greater Jakarta and Karawang municipality in West Java. The platform has formed partnerships with five private hospital chains, namely Mitra Keluarga hospitals, St. Carolus hospitals, Mayapada hospitals, Primaya hospitals and Bina Husada Cibinong hospital.”We’ve seen more people become aware of health and they come to our platforms for health consultations,” Halodoc CEO Jonathan Sudharta said in a statement on Monday.The platform allows users to directly communicate with doctors through chats, calls and videos, as well as get prescribed medicine delivered to their homes, arrange appointments for doctor visits and lab services.Having used the Alodokter platform for nearly a year, Renza Elma Pramitha, 25, a resident of Sidoarjo in East Java, was among those who still anxiously checked about COVID-19 through virtual medical consultations.”I was feeling unwell last night and I had a consultation through Alodokter to check whether or not I have COVID-19 symptoms,” she told the Post.”I was anxious about the coronavirus transmission, especially since my husband still goes to work and meets a lot of people every day. My husband and I typically get sick easily.”Even though Renza didn’t receive any prescriptions through her free consultation session, she was relieved to actually talk to a medical expert about her current condition.Read also: Quarantined doctors turn to video chats so they can see patientsFor a stay-at-home mother like Ayu Farida, 26, who has a 5-month old baby, visiting hospitals during this current situation is terrifying.”My son was having a skin rash this morning and I was scared to meet a lot of people in hospitals. The telemedicine app gave me methods to handle the skin rash on my own at home,” she said.”Some suggestions did not work as it was hard to make a diagnosis when there was no direct physical examination. But at least telemedicine is fast and sometimes free.”Rahma Amelia, 25, a full-time employee of a government agency in Sidoarjo, had a similar experience. She recently used the HaloDoc app for an ear infection. Working from home did not necessarily give her free time to visit a doctor as she had to be productive at home.”It was relatively cheap and helpful for full-time workers as the medicine was delivered to my home,” she said.Topics : The use of virtual medical services has climbed in recent months as people try to contain the spread of COVID-19 at hospitals and clinics in Indonesia, telemedicine platforms have reported.As the telemedicine trend has already risen in the country, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo addressed his appreciation toward the business on Monday, hoping that the platforms would grow even more. “I think that medical consultations through advanced technology, or telemedicine, should be enhanced so that we could limit direct contact between doctors and patients [during the pandemic],” said the President during a Cabinet meeting at the State Palace complex on Monday. last_img read more

How the New Department of Health and Human Services Will Help People with Substance Use Disorder

Posted on October 16, 2020Categories oimdzshwTags , , , , , , , , , , ,   Leave a comment on How the New Department of Health and Human Services Will Help People with Substance Use Disorder

first_img Budget News,  Efficiency,  Government That Works,  Substance Use Disorder,  The Blog Yesterday, Governor Wolf announced his plan to create a Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in his 2017-2018 budget which would merge the Departments of Aging (PDA), Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP), Health (DOH), and Human Services (DHS) in order to help provide more streamlined services to Pennsylvanians.One group of Pennsylvanians the creation of this new department will benefit are those suffering from substance use disorder. Currently, PDA, DDAP, DOH, and DHS have all been critical to battling the opioid and heroin epidemic. For example:DOH launched a prescription drug monitoring program and has been raising awareness of the naloxone standing orderDDAP has led the effort to increase the availability of naloxone and drug take back boxesDHS has created 45 centers of excellence to coordinate treatment for those suffering from substance use disordersPDA has led prescription drug take back efforts among the senior population encouraging proper use, storage, and disposal of unused prescription medicationsBy creating a single organization that is structurally better able to support and coordinate these efforts, individuals in desperate need of substance use disorder treatment will be able to access services through one agency with an integrated data and delivery system.It’s important to note that the creation will not result in a loss of services for those suffering from substance use disorder. In fact, just today Governor Wolf announced that his proposed 2017-2018 budget will include $10 million to provide live-saving Naloxone to first responders and law enforcement across the state to help save lives and get people into treatment.Governor Wolf is continuing to make battling the opioid and heroin crisis epidemic a top priority which is why there will continue to be a cabinet-level position in his administration that will be dedicated to battling this public health crisis.Additionally, the new HHS will serve as the single state authority for Medicaid, substance use, and mental health purposes enabling the commonwealth to maximize available federal dollars and offset state costs for staff and services.By streamlining services and getting rid of unnecessary red tape, Pennsylvania will be able to provide additional, high-quality services to those suffering from substance use disorder so we can stem the tide of the terrible disease of addiction.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: By: Beth Melena, Deputy Press Secretary SHARE Email Facebook Twitter January 31, 2017 How the New Department of Health and Human Services Will Help People with Substance Use Disorderlast_img read more
