Two Los Angeles city council members plan to ask their colleagues today to authorize an audit of the city’s aging power system, which buckled because of prolonged air conditioning use during the recent heat wave. Besides calling for an audit, the motions that Council members Eric Garcetti and Jan Perry plan to introduce also will seek a report from the Department of Water and Power on its response to blackouts and an analysis of the department’s energy efficiency programs. The department will also be asked to report to the council every month on its readiness to provide energy during an emergency. As temperatures reached triple digits last week, more than 29,000 DWP customers lost power, as did another 29,000 Southern California Edison customers. DWP customers were typically without power for 24 to 48 hours. Eighteen deaths believed to be heat-related were reported in Los Angeles County during that period of prolonged 100-plus-degree temperatures. “We have not seen the last heat wave here in Los Angeles,” Garcetti said. “We cannot continue to keep our heads in the sand. We need a system that keeps Angelenos safe and cool.” The City Council’s Energy and the Environment Committee, chaired by Perry, will hold a hearing on the issue tomorrow. “Last week, people were left without power for days waiting to hear when they could expect some relief from the extreme heat. It is obvious that we need to work together to find a better way to anticipate and prevent blackouts and create a better system by which people can access information in a timely manner,” Perry said. H. David Nahai, president of the city Water and Power Commission, said part of the problem is the city’s aging energy systems. “The city is more than welcome to conduct its own audit, but it’s absolutely clear that the infrastructure of the city is aging,” Nahai said. “When we were appointed by Mayor (Antonio) Villaraigosa, we conducted an inspection of the infrastructure of the DWP, and the result of that report was that the trends — as far as reliability is concerned — are in the wrong direction.” The department has proposed renovating its equipment and hiring 750 additional employees. To pay for that, the DWP wants a 6.2 percent water rate hike and a 9 percent power hike over the next two years. Those fee increases are subject to council approval, but Garcetti said he wants more information from the DWP before taking up the issue. Council members were particularly frustrated that DWP officials had assured them the department was prepared to handle energy demand during an emergency, Garcetti said. “The department looked us square in the eye and told us they were better prepared this year. We never expected perfection, but we didn’t expect as many people to be out this year as last year,” he said. Following a 2006 heat wave, 3,000 transformers were replaced and the agency contracted with private crews to help repair outages, Nahai said. “I think that the general manager genuinely believed that the steps that had been taken were sufficient,” he said. “It may be that they weren’t sufficient. But it is for this reason, and knowing that (there are) weaknesses in our infrastructure, that we have made all of these proposals in our budget with respect to renovating the infrastructure and pursuing energy conservation programs.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Environmental Affairs and Tourism Minister Marthinus van Schalkwyk has announced that the use, manufacture and processing of asbestos will be prohibited in South Africa with immediate effect.(Image: The Association for the Global Eradication of Asbestos and Asbestos Products – AGEAAP)The Regulations for the Prohibition of the Use, Manufacturing, Import and Export of Asbestos and Asbestos Containing Materials, which form part of the Environment Conservation Act of 1989, will be promulgated on 28 March and will take effect immediately, Van Schalkwyk said at a media briefing on Thursday.“A grace period of 120 days will be allowed for any person or merchant who is currently dealing in asbestos or asbestos containing materials to clear their stocks,” he said.The main objectives of the new regulations is to prohibit the use, processing or manufacturing, of any asbestos or asbestos-containing product unless it can be proven that no suitable alternative exists.South Africa will now prohibit the import or export of any asbestos or asbestos-containing product, and will also stop the import of any asbestos or asbestos containing waste material other than from a member of the Southern African Development Community.The regulations do, however, make provision for asbestos to be used for research purposes.The health implications of exposure to airborne asbestos fibres were highlighted in the 1930s and specific links to certain cancers were first made in South Africa in the early 1960s.“Due to the extent and severity of asbestos related problems affecting the communities in these provinces, a multi-stakeholder National Asbestos Summit was convened by the Environmental Portfolio Committee in 1998,” Van Schalkwyk said.He highlighted that recommendations from the summit brought about the development of a national strategy to address asbestos pollution in the country with the objective of phasing out the mining of it out.The department had been mandated by Cabinet to draft regulations to enforce the phasing out and ultimate prohibition of asbestos, with the first draft regulations being published in 2005.Van Schalkwyk said it is important to remember that exposure to asbestos in the workplace including, mining, industrial, commercial, retail and public workplaces, including maintenance of building materials is still controlled by the Asbestos Regulations 2001 published by the Department of Labour.These require employers to draw up a register of all asbestos containing materials, conducts a risk assessment, educate and inform employees, protect employees from exposure to asbestos and conduct regular dust and health surveillance.South Africa, he said, has joined some 50 countries in the prohibition of asbestos and that any person who has ever suffered from exposure to asbestos would see the absolute necessity for the regulations.Asbestos once accounted for three percent of the value of South Africa’s minerals. South Africa was previously the fifth largest supplier of chrysotile, produced 97% of the world’s crocidolite and 100% of all amosite.Source: GCIS, The Association for the Global Eradication of Asbestos and Asbestos Products – AGEAAPWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

25 October 2012South Africa’s women’s football team, Banyana Banyana, have wrapped up their training camp in Cameroon and jet off to Malabo, Equatorial Guinea on Thursday to put the finishing touches to their preparations for the eight-nation 2012 African Women’s Championship.The African women’s football showpiece event starts on 28 October, with Sasol-sponsored Banyana Banyana in Group A action against hosts Equatorial Guinea.Before they departed for Equatorial Guinea, Banyana Banyana received words of motivation from the South African High Commissioner to Cameroon, Ntshadi M Tsheole, who paid a surprise visit to the team’s training session on Wednesday.‘Best of luck’“As a Commission, we are so excited to have Banyana Banyana training here in Cameroon and wish them the best of luck for the tournament in Equatorial Guinea,” said Tsheole.“We are politicians, but Banyana Banyana are ambassadors for South Africa in their own right. Everywhere they go, so do the media, and these young football players are a real credit to our country.”Meanwhile, coach Joseph Mkhonza looked also a little more relaxed than he had been earlier in the week as the team’s technical staff joined the players in a small size field practice match.Spirit high“The spirit in the camp is high, particularly after the effort put in during the one-all draw against Cameroon in an international friendly match played in Yaounde on Monday,” he said.“Having a national training camp in the humid conditions here in Cameroon was crucial to our build up to the Caf African Women’s Championship 2012, as we are likely to find similar conditions in Equatorial Guinea. Safa and Sasol, our team sponsor, need to be commended for allowing our team the opportunity to prepare here in Cameroon.”The coaching staff said it was impressed with the way in which Durban Ladies striker Silindile Ngubane and club-mate and defender Charlotte Mshengu have fitted into the Banyana Banyana set up.Goal scorer“I called Ngubane to the camp after having seen her score 11 goals for Durban Ladies at the Sasol League National Championships held in Durban in July, and she has already netted for Banyana Banyana in the one-all draw with Zimbabwe in Daveyton last week,” said Mkhonza.“Mshengu is a valuable player as she can play in any of the defensive positions and this could be of major value in a long tournament such as the Caf African Women’s Championship. The national coaches also spotted her potential when she played for Durban Ladies during the Sasol League National Championships held in Durban.”Mshengu made her Banyana Banyana debut as a second half substitute for her Durban Ladies club-mate Zamandosi Cele in the international friendly against Cameroon on Monday.Apart from University of Johannesburg midfielder Yola Jafta (hamstring strain), all of the players are fit and ready for action, with Cape Town Roses midfielder Nocawe Skiti having returned to training after a trip to the dentist in Yaounde on Tuesday to have a tooth extracted.FixturesFollowing the Group A match against Equatorial Guinea, Banyana Banyana will face Senegal in Malabo on 31 October, and will travel to Bata for their encounter with DR Congo on 3 November.The semi-finals will take place in either Malabo or Bata on 7 November , with the third- and fourth-place playoff and the title decider both set to take place in Malabo on 11 November.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Star Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan says he is relishing his promotion to number three in the batting order, having scored half-centuries in his last four ODIs.Shakib has now passed 50 in all three matches of the World Cup so far and the promotion from number five to number three in the batting order is clearly paying dividends.The all-rounder, who also opened the bowling against England here on Saturday, admits he had to convince everyone else in the squad he was worthy of the batting promotion.”Yeah, (I needed to convince) everyone. Because if I don’t score runs in a single match, they would think he should be batting at number five he’s better down there. It is different. You need to face some different challenges.”But I’m enjoying at this moment, but having said that, it’s just the start, I need to contribute as much as I can with both bat and ball,” said Shakib whose 121 against went in vain as Bangladesh lost by 106 runs.Shakib is in fine form with the bat but he knows it is with the ball that Bangladesh came unstuck against England who amassed 386.”We are disappointed with the result, and the manner we actually bowled. I thought we bowled really, really well against South Africa and against New Zealand,” he said.”We were expecting a better bowling performance in this match. But obviously, England played brilliantly. Credit goes to their batsmen. The way their openers started, and the way (Jos) Buttler finished the innings was the turning point of the match I think.”advertisementWith the bat, the twin threats of Jofra Archer and Mark Wood gave Shakib a proper examination.”They are quick. It was a difficult challenge, but I enjoyed it. Obviously, they are the two quickest bowlers in this World Cup, so I knew that it’s going to be tough, but I felt very happy with the way I played them,” he added.Also Read | We righted our wrongs: Jason Roy after England beat Bangladesh in World Cup 2019Also Read | World Cup 2019: Jason Roy intimidates opposition, says Eoin Morgan after Bangladesh winAlso See
Bollywood actress Tabu is a known face in Telugu film industry. She was last seen in actor Balakrishna’s Pandurangadu, which released in 2008. After a decade, the actress is all set to make a comeback in Tollywood with Rana Daggubati’s Virata Parvam.Sources close to the team revealed that Tabu has been chosen to play a supporting role in Virata Parvam, directed by Venu Udugula. Reports about Tabu’s remuneration have been doing the rounds. It is said that the actress has demanded Rs 60 lakh for her role in Virata Parvam.It is to be noted that many leading ladies in Tollywood get the same remuneration for playing the lead role. Since Tabu is a great addition to Virata Parvam’s team, the makers are willing to pay the same amount for playing a supporting role in the film.Tabu is now in demand in Bollywood as she scored hits with Andhadhun and De De Pyaar De. Her performances in both these films were appreciated by critics and audience alike.Recently, photos of Rana Daggubati and Sai Pallavi from the sets of Virata Parvam have been leaked.
