Vedanta Resources PLC and another (Appellants) v Lungowe and others (Respondents)
 
09:56
[2019] UKSC 20 UKSC 2017/0185 Vedanta Resources PLC and another (Appellants) v Lungowe and others (Respondents) On appeal from the Court of Appeal Civil Division (England and Wales) The respondents are 1826 Zambian citizens (“the Claimants”) who reside in the Chingola region of the Copperbelt Province in Zambia. The second appellant/defendant (“KCM”) is a public limited company, incorporated in Zambia. KCM is the owner and operator of the Nchanga copper mine in Zambia. It is the largest private employer in Zambia, where it employs approximately 16,000 people (the vast majority at Nchanga). The first appellant/defendant (“Vedanta”) is a company incorporated in the UK which acts as a holding company for a group mining companies, including KCM. On 31 July 2015 the Claimants issued proceedings against the KCM and Vedanta. They claimed to have suffered personal injury, damage to property and loss of income, amenity and enjoyment of land as a result of pollution and environmental damage caused by discharges of harmful effluent from the Nchanga mine since 2005. On 19 August 2015 Akenhead J permitted the Claimants to serve the claim form on KCM outside the jurisdiction. In September and October 2015 Vedanta and KCM respectively applied for declarations that the court lacked jurisdiction to try the claims or, alternatively, that it should not exercise such jurisdiction that it might have. Coulson J dismissed those applications. The Court of Appeal upheld the dismissal of those applications. The issues are: (1) The proper approach to the “real issue”/“proper party” test under Practice Direction 6B para. 3.1, where a claimant seeks to sue a foreign subsidiary and a UK-domiciled parent company. (2) The proper approach to the exercise of discretion under CPR r.6.37(3) in mass tort claims, particularly the weight to be given to the prospect of parallel foreign proceedings as against the prejudice caused to a foreign defendant in defending mass tort claims in England and Wales. (3) The proper approach when determining whether there is a real risk that a claimant cannot obtain substantial justice in a foreign jurisdiction. (4) The proper application of EU law principles and cases to claims brought against an English domiciled parent company, where the non-EU claimant sues both an EU-domiciled parent company and its non-EU subsidiary company (5) Whether to refer point (4) above to the EU Court of Justice. The Supreme Court dismisses the appeal.

The SSM approach to tackling NPLs: progress made and challenges ahead
 
01:00:06
Speakers: - Ignazio Angeloni, Member of the Supervisory Board of the European Central Bank - Sharon Finn, Advisor on Credit Risk & NPLs, SSM - Anne Fröhling, Head of Section, SSM - Giuseppe Siani, Deputy Director General of Microprudential Supervision IV, SSM Recording of the online seminar on 19 September 2018. Tackling NPLs has been one of the SSM priorities since its set up. NPLs weigh on banks’ balance sheets, impact on their profitability and divert resources from more proactive use. To this end the SSM has developed a comprehensive strategy to tackle NPLs which requires complementary actions from other EU stakeholders. The seminar will present the supervisory actions taken, outline the results achieved so far, and discuss the challenges ahead.
The Reason Only 15% of Organizations Have a Proactive Approach to Cybersecurity

CISO of Major UK Retailer Weighs in on Enterprise IoT Security: https://securityintelligence.com/posts/ciso-of-major-uk-retailer-weighs-in-on-enterprise-iot-security/ The current security workforce shortage leaves security functions in a reactive mode, with few resources to spare on proactive tasks. Traditional approaches to purchasing security technology have resulted in a heavy focus on point products to address specific threats. These products are frequently centered on prevention, with insufficient focus on detection and response. A proactive approach to cybersecurity means that instead of focusing on the latest threat and purchasing technology or a service to address, instead enterprises take an end-to-end view of their security controls (including people and process, alongside technology). This requires investment in time, assuming in the first place that there are the people available within the existing workforce. Established frameworks are a great starting point for the move to proactivity. The NIST framework is probably the most well-known and respected. It covers the security control buckets of prevent, detect, and respond that Ovum refers to in its security coverage. Additionally, the NIST framework uses “identify”, which is the preparation stage (Ovum rolls this into prevent), and recover, which in Ovum speak is incorporated into respond. Projects that are part of digital transformation initiatives (digital transformation is an overused term but reasonably well understood) should have security reviews incorporated from the outset. This is not only privacy (as per GDPR and similar legislation) but should encompass broader security to understand how operationalizing the project expands the threat landscape. This is the start of a proactive approach. Business Impact Assessment and Business Impact Reference tables are helpful in developing a proactive approach to cybersecurity and digital risk as they help build understanding of the risks and impacts.

CTR Development Site (salton sea)
 
00:42
Controlled Thermal Resources (US) Inc. is a multi-faceted Electricity Generation and Minerals Extraction Corporation that is developing a diverse Utility Scale Renewable Energy & Extraction Project located at the Salton Sea, Southern California USA. The Salton Sea is well known for its accessible shallow Geothermal Resources. The combination of low elevation, thin earth crust and seismic activity enables the Imperial Valley to generate 20% of all the geothermal energy produced in the United States. The 16 geothermal plants currently operating in the area produce over 530MW of electricity. It is anticipated that the Salton Sea geothermal field may contain an additional 2,000MW of commercial development potential. CTR have conducted extensive research over 18 months within the Known Geothermal Resource Area “KGRA” of the Salton Sea and have secured a highly productive site. CTR has adopted a risk adverse approach to development, whilst creating multiple revenue streams by the way of: Geothermal Energy Generation; Minerals Extraction; and Solar Power Co-Generation. CTR has secured a site with large resources including mineral rights. Plans for development are over multiple stages. Stage One power plant will have a net nameplate capacity of 50MW. The scalable master planned development will be rolled out in 50MW increments, with total resources that will produce over 500MW of base-load Geothermal Energy per annum. CTR has developed proprietary technology that is well suited to the hostile Salton Sea conditions. The “Hot Rod” is an in-ground heat exchanger that produces high quality productive steam; which is isolated from the contaminated geothermal fluids. The Hot Rod will be incorporated within the development of traditional production and injection wells, further mitigating development and production risk. Minerals extraction is an integral part of CTR’s diversified development approach. CTR’s technology will efficiently extract the high minerals, salts and silica content from geothermal fluids, which contain: Lithium, Silica, Potassium, Strontium Manganese; and Zinc This alleviates the need for expensive plant and equipment utilized to treat the reservoir fluids prior to re-injection. CTR is reviewing the incorporation of solar installations above ground. This would produce around 400MW - 600MW of additional renewable energy per annum. The Salton Sea has an annual rainfall less than 4 inches, and the sun shines in excess of 100 degrees F all year round. Solar will mitigate dust and improve the environment, also allowing for peaking and on-demand capabilities operating as a co-generation plant.

Visionary sports executive takes the helm as next Vanderbilt athletics director
 
01:27
Vanderbilt University Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos today named Malcolm Turner, a proven and highly accomplished sports business executive with a passion for the transformative power of education, as the university’s new vice chancellor for athletics and university affairs and athletics director. Turner, a member of the NBA’s senior leadership team and president of the NBA G League, will join the university on Feb. 1, 2019. “I set out to find a thought leader with the skill set and vision to manage the next stage of transformation for Vanderbilt Athletics, and that’s exactly what we found in Malcolm Turner,” Zeppos said. “Malcolm is a proven executive with deep expertise in multiple business disciplines including management, marketing and development across the sports landscape of teams, leagues, facilities and major events. He also carries a deep and personal commitment to education, evidenced by his own academic achievements and his extensive community service. His exceptional skills, combined with his passion for education and drive for excellence, will bring immense value not only to the Vanderbilt Commodores, but to the rest of the university and to the entire Nashville community.” Vanderbilt interviewed a number of highly accomplished candidates and ultimately decided Turner was the right fit to carry on Vanderbilt’s athletics program. “The level of interest in this role from a superb and diverse set of candidates was nothing short of remarkable,” noted Zeppos. “This was a testament to what I believe is an inspiring and distinctive approach to the student athlete experience that I call ‘the Vanderbilt Way’ – a deep commitment to the comprehensive development of student athletes to excel on the field of play, academically and in life.” Zeppos said Turner is the right leader to take the university’s commitment to student-athletes to the next level and achieve success on and off the field. “Malcolm is a problem solver with a unique ability to bring people together around a common vision,” he added. “I am confident that he will have an immediate and profound impact on the Commodores’ success as an elite athletics program by building new relationships and new sources of revenue, while recruiting and retaining extraordinarily talented coaches, students and staff.” “I am honored to join such a storied university with a historic commitment to excellence in everything it does,” Turner said. “Vanderbilt University and the city of Nashville are on the move, and I’m excited to be a part of that transformation and help position the Commodores and Vanderbilt’s unique approach to developing student-athletes as a national and international model. I look forward to supporting and partnering with our student-athletes, coaches, facility managers, staff and the entire Commodores community to help attain and provide the resources for our teams to succeed.” Turner graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and went on to earn joint J.D./.M.B.A. degrees from Harvard University. Turner is also an accomplished community leader, having served on the advisory boards for Teach for America, the University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School, the UNC Board of Visitors and the board of the Morehead-Cain Scholarship Fund. As a student at UNC Chapel Hill, Turner was a Rhodes Scholar Finalist, Morehead-Cain Scholar and recipient of the Ernest L. Mackie Chancellor’s Award for character, scholarship and leadership. Turner’s tenure as president of the NBA G League is hallmarked by growth, expansion and transformation. Under Turner’s leadership, the NBA G League has enjoyed unprecedented growth across all areas of its business and basketball operations — from record numbers of NBA G League alumni in the NBA, to a first-of-its-kind expanded entitlement partnership with Gatorade, to innovative new player contract types. A champion for NBA Two-Way Contracts (newly incorporated in the NBA’s current Collective Bargaining Agreement) and NBA G League Select Contracts (newly announced as part of the G League’s recently launched professional path), Turner’s vision deepened the league’s commitment to player development.

Session 2 - CGE Approach to Assess the Impacts of Water Scarcity due to Climate Change in Japan
 
13:19
Dr Hiroshi Hamasaki, Senior Research Fellow, Economic Research Centre, Fujitsu Research Institute Japan is surrounded by sea and little attention has been paid to the economic impacts of water scarcity due to climate change. As a result, no research has been done to identify the economic impacts of water scarcity on Japanese economy. Partial economic model is unable to provide indirect effects of changes, but CGE (Computable General Equilibrium) model provide more complete welfare assessment, incorporating constraints and feedbacks between different economic sectors and agents. TERM Model was originally developed by COPs (Centre of Policy Studies), Victoria University and a multi-regional Australia CGE model. TERM version for Japan was constructed by Yamamoto, from 104-sector and distinguishing 47 bottom-up regions. In this research, we have incorporated water consumption module to TERM model version for Japan and aggregated regions to 14 regions to fit to water consumption statistics. 10% water supply reduction to agricultural sector will lead to negative GDP impacts on all regions except Kanto-R including Tokyo, Kanagawa and Chiba. Despite the small share of agricultural, Hokkaido, the north part of Japan, is the two most influenced regions and GDP and wage will decrease by 0.21% and 0.18% and 0.30% respectively.

The Tourism and Protected Areas Specialist Group (TAPAS Group) is a network of professionals committed to promoting sustainable tourism in protected areas globally, and whose mission is to provide a forum where people collaborate, stimulate dialogue, share expertise, develop and disseminate knowledge, and enhance learning, in order to enhance the planning, development and management of sustainable tourism in protected areas. With this in mind, TAPAS Group has organized a 2-part webinar, with the technical support of Ecoturismo Genuino (www.ecoturismogenuino.com) about the experience of the Interagency Visitor Use Management Council (IVUMC), a collaboration between six federal agencies that manage public lands within the United States of America, and the recently released Visitor Use Management Framework, Edition One (VMU). The Interagency Visitor Use Management Council (IVUMC) is a collaboration between six federal agencies that manage public lands within the United States of America. Council collaboration is designed to increase awareness of and commitment to proactive, professional, and science-based visitor use management on federally-managed lands and waters. The council’s mission is to provide guidance on visitor use management policies and to develop legally defensible and effective interagency implementation tools for visitor use management. Providing a consistent approach to visitor use management better serves the public by creating seamless connections between lands and waters managed by different federal agencies. The council is excited to share its recently released Visitor Use Management Framework, Edition One. The Visitor Use Management Framework (the framework) is a process designed for federal managers to collaboratively develop, implement, and monitor strategies and actions to provide sustainable access to lands and waters. The intent, and ultimate desired outcome, is to provide high quality visitor experiences, while protecting natural and cultural resources. The framework can be incorporated into existing federal agency planning and decision-making processes and is applicable across a wide spectrum of situations that vary in complexity and spatial extent from site-specific to large-scale planning efforts.

Webinar - Better Engagement and Better Outcomes with PCOMS
 
53:31
PCOMS (the Partners for Change Outcome Management System) is a unique approach to supporting people who need help to thrive. In this free Community Research webinar, Robyn Pope and Laurie Siegel-Woodward outline the PCOMS approach and the research behind it, and share their learnings and experience of implementing PCOMS within social service agencies in Aotearoa. They describe the impact the system has had on service users, providers and organisations alike. We also hear from individuals who have experienced the PCOMS approach as clients. The webinar concludes with the direction of PCOMS in this country and offers resources for those interested in learning more about it. PCOMS gives people the power to set their own goals and measure their progress, as well as giving practitioners feedback on their practice, and providing organisations with data to develop and shape effective services. The PCOMS approach: • recognises that individuals are the experts in their own lives and therefore, their ideas about what could work for them should be incorporated into all aspects of work with that individual. • privileges the culture and ideas of the individual, to support them to discover their own unique solutions to the issues they are dealing with. • recognises the importance of the relationship between the individual and the practitioner working with them. • enables progress to be measured and addressed during each contact session. This means that any lack of improvement can be addressed quickly and transparently, which reduces drop-out. The stories from those experiencing PCOMS are powerful. They tell of being able to focus on progress, rather than being overwhelmed by a tangle of seemingly insurmountable problems. Practitioners learning to use PCOMS talk of their own journey from confusion and self-doubt, to focused interactions with their clients that led to profound change. Robyn Pope is the Manager Practice and Development at Wesley Community Action in Wellington New Zealand. She is an accredited trainer in the Strengths Based Framework and has been responsible for the implementation of this framework and PCOMS throughout Wesley Community Actions services. Robyn is a project leader with the Better Outcomes Now team. Laurie Siegel-Woodward is the Executive Director of the Partnering for Outcomes Foundation Aotearoa and director of Aliarah Ltd. Recognising PCOMS as both a quality improvement measure and an opportunity to privilege the culture of the client, Laurie advocates for its widespread use to reduce health disparities across New Zealanders and improve health outcomes.

Transforming Waste into Resources in Nairobi, Kenya
 
04:22
The disposal of urban waste plagues many poorer communities in Nairobi today, exacerbating poor sanitation and the spreading of disease in the city. People are strongly dependent on scarce natural resources, with firewood, charcoal and kerosene the major sources of energy. This represents a significant proportion of household expenditure and causes significant environmental harm and issues with personal health. We have been working in Nairobi with the Community Cooker Foundation to fine tune, and build community cookers to tackle waste, charcoal use, and poverty levels. Developed by the Community Cooker Foundation, this system can be used for cooking, sterilisation and boiling water for washing and drinking, whilst providing a strong focus for a community. The cooker reduces the amount of solid waste on the streets, burning the waste in accordance with World Health Organisation emissions standards, and offers a sustainable alternative to limited energy resources. In addition, the project provides.
Discriminative Learning of Social Dynamics
 
51:26
As a field concerned with prediction, machine learning is a natural candidate for approaching social-related prediction tasks. However, in contrast to many other domains were machine learning has been successfully applied, social phenomena remain notoriously hard to predict. In this talk I will argue that in addition to a large and rich data and powerful computational resources, the success of a learning approach critically depends on its ability to incorporate prior knowledge. It is therefore natural to ask – how can social and behavioral theory be incorporated into predictive learning frameworks? I will discuss ways in which this can be achieved, and present a general method for incorporating models of social behavior. Our method learns a class of predictors inspired by generative models of social dynamics, but under a discriminative objective. Thus, it utilizes the explanatory power of social models, while optimizing predictive accuracy. This is achieved by efficiently learning an optimal (linear) combination of (non-linear) social-dynamic models, which implicitly serve as an infinite, continuous set of features in a dual kernel space. I will present results on the tasks of influence estimation and network value prediction, and elaborate on possible extensions to tasks in domains like behavioral economics, crowdsourcing, and others. Finally, I will discuss how ad-hoc predictive methods can be used to expose and illuminate social phenomena and support behavioral hypotheses, and how such goals can motivate challenging and novel problems for machine learning.

"the 101" Episode 5: How does malware actually work?
 
04:08
Last week we started our discussion about malware by breaking down its major types. These distinctions are important because they help us craft the right strategies for defending ourselves; namely how we prioritize our time, money, and resources. But when it comes to tactics, we need to have a better sense of how malware works so we know how to defend ourselves. So, to continue our discussion in today’s episode, we ask: “How does malware actually work?” To see more free series by Carbon Black go to www.carbonblack.com/resources/learn-ngav ****************** Don't miss out on the future of next generation endpoint security!

01:09:27
IUCN/WCPA Tourism and Protected Areas Specialist Group (TAPAS) in partnership with the Interagency Visitor Use Management Council (IVUMC) and Ecoturismo Genuino present: The Visitor Use Management Framework (the framework) a process designed for federal managers to collaboratively develop, implement, and monitor strategies and actions to provide sustainable access to lands and waters. The intent, and ultimate desired outcome, is to provide high quality visitor experiences, while protecting natural and cultural resources. The framework can be incorporated into existing federal agency planning and decision-making processes and is applicable across a wide spectrum of situations that vary in complexity and spatial extent from site-specific to large-scale planning efforts. The council is excited to share its recently released Visitor Use Management Framework, Edition One. The Interagency Visitor Use Management Council (IVUMC) is a collaboration between six federal agencies that manage public lands within the United States of America. Council collaboration is designed to increase awareness of and commitment to proactive, professional, and science-based visitor use management on federally-managed lands and waters. The council’s mission is to provide guidance on visitor use management policies and to develop legally defensible and effective interagency implementation tools for visitor use management. Providing a consistent approach to visitor use management better serves the public by creating seamless connections between lands and waters managed by different federal agencies.

Why Level(s)? A common language for sustainable buildings
 
02:32
Level(s) is a voluntary reporting framework to improve the sustainability of buildings. Using existing standards, Level(s) provides a common EU approach to the assessment of environmental performance in the built environment. In 2014, the European Commission adopted the Communication "Resource efficiency opportunities in the building sector". The general objective of this initiative is to reduce the environmental impact of buildings by improving the overall resource efficiency and, as a consequence, to improve the related competitiveness of construction businesses. This identified the need for a common EU approach to the assessment of the environmental performance of buildings: a "common framework of core indicators", rigorous enough to drive improvement in performance and allow for comparison between buildings. In 2015, the Circular Economy Action Plan furthermore reiterates this objective and adds that, given the long lifetime of buildings, it is essential to encourage design improvements that will reduce their environmental impacts and increase the durability and recyclability of their components. Since then, the work started the Level(s) framework – a flexible system of indicators, that can be incorporated into new and existing assessment schemes, or be used on their own by a diverse range of stakeholders, including public authorities, design teams and property investors.

2016 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate: Is the Universe a Simulation?
 
02:00:59
What may have started as a science fiction speculation—that perhaps the universe as we know it is a computer simulation—has become a serious line of theoretical and experimental investigation among physicists, astrophysicists, and philosophers. Neil deGrasse Tyson, Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium, hosts and moderates a panel of experts in a lively discussion about the merits and shortcomings of this provocative and revolutionary idea.

School Inc. Episode 3: Forces and Choices - Full Video
 
56:35
Ten years after Chile reformed its education system, Sweden followed suit, and so Sweden is Andrew Coulson’s first stop in episode three of School, Inc. All private schools in Sweden are now fully tax supported, and parents can choose between these so-called “free” schools and the local public schools. The global journey continues, visiting highly successful private schools in Sweden, London and India, where the resistance to education as a business has lessened. Coulson is joined by the administrators of these schools to examine the secrets of their success, learning that some of India’s highly successful private schools serve eager poor students and parents at little more than a dollar a week. School, Inc. comes full circle to conclude in the English countryside where the Industrial Revolution began. Then as now, Coulson suggests, education was perhaps the only field in which successful entrepreneurship was not celebrated. He concludes “What if we allowed all education entrepreneurs to put their own money on the line in an effort to better serve us, gaining or losing just as entrepreneurs do in other fields? And what if we made sure that everyone had access to that wide-open marketplace? Would we then see excellence scale-up in education?

1/2: Karianne Bergen: Big data for small earthquakes
 
49:47
Part 1 of 2: Dr. Karianne Bergen, Harvard Data Science Initiative Fellow at Harvard U., presents "Big data for small earthquakes: a data mining approach to large-scale earthquake detection" at the MIT Earth Resources Laboratory on September 28, 2018. "Earthquake detection, the problem of extracting weak earthquake signals from continuous waveform data recorded by sensors in a seismic network, is a critical and challenging task in seismology. New algorithmic advances in “big data” and artificial intelligence have created opportunities to advance the state-of-the-art in earthquake detection algorithms. In this talk, I will present Fingerprint and Similarity Thresholding (FAST; Yoon et al, 2015), a data mining approach to large-scale earthquake detection, inspired by technology for rapid audio identification. FAST leverages locality sensitive hashing (LSH), a technique for efficiently identifying similar items in large data sets, to detect new candidate earthquakes without template waveforms ("training data"). I will present recent algorithmic extensions to FAST that enable detection over a seismic network and limit false detections due to local correlated noise (Bergen & Beroza, 2018). Using the foreshock sequence prior to the 2014 Mw 8.2 Iquique earthquake as a test case, we demonstrate that our approach is sensitive and maintains a low false detections rate, identifying five times as many events as the local seismicity catalog with a false discovery rate of less than 1%. We show that our new optimized FAST software is capable of discovering new events with unknown sources in 10 years of continuous data (Rong et al, 2018). I will end the talk with recommendations, based on our experience developing the FAST detector, for how the solid Earth geoscience community can leverage machine learning and data mining to enable data-driven discovery.

He presents current events and draws connections to the past to highlight the machinations of our global economy. He helps us to understand political and corporate policy, organization of labor, the distribution of goods and services, and challenges us to question some of the deepest foundations of our society.
