David Ontario released its 2013 Air Quality Report last week and the improvements with respect to particulate matter in the air are kind of jaw-dropping. Since 2004, nitrogen dioxide in the air has dropped by 40%, sulphur dioxide by 46%, carbon monoxide by Read more ... 42% and fine particulate matter (ex. soot and ash) decreased 30%! These results are likely directly related to the province’s coal phase out. The last coal power plant in Ontario was only closed last year, so the trend in improved air quality should continue into the future: http://ow.ly/LS2o4

Anthony The Unheralded Genius of Automated Trains Driverless cars are among the most vivid images of the technology near-future. The concept is a symbol of algorithmic prowess and machine intelligence, as we cede control of several thousand pounds of metal Read more ... (and people) traveling at 65 or more miles per hour to an automated system that we as users don't even really understand. We've been here before. The very dawn of driverless technology broke just over 50 years ago in London and Barcelona with the advent of automatic train operation (driverless trains). The London project was particularly significant as it transferred almost all control to the automated system, save for opening and closing the passenger doors. This was the Victoria Line, and in the intervening decades it's been joined by dozens more segments across the world. Opening in stages through the late 1960s and early '70s, the Victoria Line was the first new deep-level Underground line to be built since the "tube boom" of 1905 through 1907. It runs from the south to northeast of London and is considered to be the most intensively traveled line on the system in terms of per-mile usage. In all, it serves 200 million passengers yearly along 21 kilometers of entirely underground trackage. The Victoria Line's operation involves an operator whose role isn't so much driving the train as pressing a button to activate the automated system. The doors are closed, a button is pressed, and the train does its thing. Before being implemented on the new line, ATO was first tested using a single train on the District Line in 1963 and then, a year later, on the Central Line with a complete service. Both experiments proved to be successful, and, thus, it was decided to fully equip the Victoria Line for ATO. Image: Victoria Line/Wiki The ATO challenge is this. With a manually operated train, a driver observes wayside signals and operates the train accordingly: slow, stop, all-clear. Likewise, on entering a station, the driver operates the brakes and throttle in such a way to stop the train in the allotted space. So, the driver acts as the interface between visual cues and train operation. An automated train requires some other means to implement that interface. "To convert the observation of signal aspects to automatic operation requires a means of transmitting signal aspects to the train," explains a page at Tubeprune (the "Tube Professionals' Rumour Network"). "By the early 1960s, this had been done on a number of railways, particularly in the United States, where cab signalling was used on some heavily used passenger lines. The system used coded track circuits which were picked up by the train and displayed to the driver in the cab. It was simply a matter of converting the codes into instructions and using the instructions to control the train." "The difficult bit was to do it safely and reliably," Tubeprune writes. Train signals are more simple than it might at first seem. Rail lines (signalled rail lines) are divided up into discrete segments known as blocks and these blocks are controlled by a sort of permission system that communicates to drivers whether the upcoming block is safe to enter. The block knows its own state thanks to a simple electric circuit. Current goes up the block on one rail and comes back on the other. If this is unbroken and the circuit is complete, the block is safe and unobstructed. If a train (or other obstruction) is on the line, the circuit is broken and signal will be red. That's about it. Indeed, one of the biggest advances in railway safety is the ability to, first, communicate an upcoming (but not yet visible) signal state directly into a railway cab and, second, to tell a train violating a signal to stop, overriding the operator. This is called automatic train protection or ATP. At this point, we're already halfway there to full-on automated train control, but the problem remained of how to communicate more information to the train than the simple stop and go of a railway block system. This is where things get really clever. The primary instruction (beyond start and stop) needing to be communicated to a train was speed. Tube engineers overcame this by devising a system in which codes are fed to the track circuit given by a particular block. These codes are simple enough matters of pulses per minute delivered at a frequency of 125 Hz. The frequency validates the codes (telling the train that these are legit instructions) while the pulses tell the train what to do. 420 ppm means full-speed, 220 means restricted speed, and 180 means brake. Pulses below that range are reserved for more conventional matters of indicating the occupied state of the block. Here's the schematic: The codes themselves are determined by the track conditions ahead coupled with the train's safe braking distance. A train must never be allowed onto an occupied block. "If a train travelling at (say) 40 mi/h is tripped, it will travel about 600 feet (200 m) before coming to rest," TP explains. "So, to ensure safety for the train, it must be stopped before it can enter an occupied block. The way to do this is to trip the train if it enters the block before the occupied one. Such a section is called the 'overlap' and its length will be at least that required for a train to come to rest from maximum possible speed. The length of the overlap will depend largely upon the maximum speed which the train will attain when running through that section." So, a train sitting in a station is protected by two blocks behind it. The first is a 180 block, telling the train to apply braking, and the next is a 120 block, signalling that the train has somehow overrun a red signal and needs to stop immediately. There is only one circumstance in which a Victoria Line train can operate manually, which is when it's scooting around its service depot. Here, it can be operated in "slow manual," which limits the trains speed to 10 miles per hour and requires constant operator input (holding a button down). Otherwise, the train is unable to move without codes. As with driverless cars, driverless trains in the future aren't likely to mean actual driverless trains so much as automated trains. They might not be doing very much, but drivers will for the most part still be there, with the exception of some smaller, highly-controlled people mover-style systems. At the very least, there are unions and perceptions to consider. The overall trend is toward ATO systems and, much more so, ATP systems. But they aren't foolproof. A deadly 2009 accident on the Washington DC Metro, for example, was the result of a faulty track circuit. This allowed a train to exist essentially invisibly to the system and, crucially, to the train behind it, which resulted in a collision that killed nine people and injured 80. Yet 2009 also provided a counterpoint on the very same system, as an operator allowed a train to exceed the speed limit on a segment of uncontrolled track in a Metro railyard, injuring three and damaging 12 cars. "In an increasingly impatient world, long waits for public transport drive away all but the captive passenger," a 2001 piece in the Railway Gazette declared. "Frequent, economic service at all hours was the original rationale for the development of the Westinghouse system in 1963, and it remains the most compelling advantage of driverless operation. Dispensing with a driver or attendant is still difficult to accept, and is opposed by labour unions on most established metros. The slow but continuing move to one-person operation is a sign of change." from Motherboard RSS Feed http://ift.tt/1NKOYEJ http://ift.tt/1D6KhDU Motherboard, The Unheralded Genius of Automated Trains, Motherboard RSS Feed, IFTTT

Cong. Congress News: BILL REGULATING EMPLOYMENT OF FOREIGNERS FILED BY NOGRALES, OTHER SOLONS A measure regulating the employment of foreign nationals in the country was filed in the House of Representatives. House Bill 5470 authored by Reps. Karlo Alexe Read more ... i B. Nograles (1st District, Davao City), Emmeline Y. Aglipay Villar (Party List –DIWA), Florencio T. Flores, Jr. (2nd District, Bukidnon), and Deogracias B. Ramos, Jr. (2nd District, Sorsogon) amends Articles 40, 41, and 42, Title II, Book 1 of Presidential Decree 442, as amended or the Labor Code of the Philippines. Congressman Nograles is the chairman of the House Committee on Labor. Nograles said since the Labor Code of the Philippines was enacted in 1974, the trend towards integration and interconnectedness of countries into a single global community has increased in the form of various political and economical agreements. One of these agreements, Nograles said, is the General Agreement of Trade in Services (GATS), to which the Philippines, a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO), is a signatory. The WTO-GATS is a framework for a multilateral trading system in the service sector, which includes an annex on the movement of natural persons, Nograles said. Nograles said one of the Philippine commitments to the WTO-GATS is to review the restrictions in Title II, Article 40 of the Labor Code of the Philippines, as amended. “The main restrictions in the hiring of a foreign national is the Labor Market Test (LMT), which is used to determine the non-availability of a qualified, able and willing person in the Philippines to do the services for which the foreign national is being hired, which is comparable to an Economics Needs Test implemented by other countries,” Nograles said. “The Philippines is also a member-state of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), and is likewise obliged to review the said provision in preparation for the envisioned regional integration this year, 2015 as envisioned in the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) Blueprint of ASEAN member countries committed to the AEC in 2007,” Aglipay-Villar, another author of the bill said. According to Aglipay-Villar, the proposed amendment of the provision is to facilitate uniformity by properly stating the term used by the Philippines in its commitments entered into bilateral, regional and multilateral agreements. “It is a way for the country to determine if there is a short supply of workers in specific industries, occupations and professions which probably inhibits the country from increased productivity and industry development, which includes a provision for training of Filipino understudies to transfer skills and technology from the foreign national,” Aglipay-Villar said. Under the measure, all non-resident foreign nationals seeking employment in the country shall obtain an employment permit from the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) subject to the labor market test based on the non-availability of qualified and willing Filipino national. The Secretary of Labor and Employment is authorized to grant exemptions from the Labor Market Test to foreign nationals as well as in industries or occupations or practice of professions where there is short supply, after tripartite consultation. Hired foreign nationals shall transfer technology to Filipino understudies within a prescribed period. After the issuance of an employment permit, the foreign national shall not transfer to another job or change his employer without prior approval of the Secretary of Labor and Employment. In violation, both the foreign national and the employer shall be punished with a fine of not more than P100,000 or imprisonment of not more than six years or both at the discretion of the court. The Secretary of Labor and Employment is authorized to impose a fine of P50,000 for every year or fraction thereof to both the foreign national found working without valid employment permit and to their employer. Foreign national shall be subject to deportation after service of his or her sentence. Employers employing non-resident foreign nationals shall submit a list of such nationals to the Regional Director of the Department of Labor and Employment which has jurisdiction on the employer within 30 days after hiring, indicating their names, citizenship, foreign and local addresses, nature of employment and status of stay in the country. The Secretary of Labor and Employment, in coordination with concerned agencies, shall formulate the necessary rules and regulations to implement the provisions of the proposed Act. (PRIB/jc)
