Bloodhound brings world focus to South Africa

first_imgThe development of the Bloodhound supersonic car, seen here in model form, is expected to attract youngsters to careers in maths, science and engineering. Andy Green, who will steer the Bloodhound SSC to a new land speed record, is passionate about the educational aspects of the project.(Images: Janine Erasmus) A workforce from the Mier community has been working on clearing the surface of Hakskeen Pan for about three years now.(Image: Bloodhound SSC)MEDIA CONTACTS • Marina JoubertPR, Bloodhound SSC+27 83 409 4254RELATED ARTICLES• Northern Cape ideal for extreme sports• Telecoms boom for South Africa• Nougat becomes race food• Midmar Mile’s 89-year-old finisher• SKA: who gets what Janine ErasmusThere’s more to the Bloodhound SSC than just mind-boggling speed – the project is aimed at inspiring a new generation of scientists and engineers, and a Northern Cape community is benefiting through job creation, better communications infrastructure, and tourism.The Bloodhound SSC (supersonic car) land speed record attempt will take place in 2015 in the Northern Cape at Hakskeen Pan, a dry lake bed about 200km north of Upington.“The car is being built in the UK, but this is a South African event,” says Wing Commander Andy Green of the Royal Air Force.He’s the world’s fastest man, and driver of the Bloodhound SSC. Oxford mathematics graduate Green was the first and so far, the only person to break the sound barrier on land – in 1997 in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert, driving the Thrust SSC, he set a speed of 1 228 km/h (763 mph).The record still stands today – but not for long. If anyone can break Andy Green’s record, it’s Green himself.The daredevil is visiting South Africa as a guest at the 2013 Scifest Africa, taking place in Grahamstown from 13 to 19 March under the theme Science on the Move. He’ll be introducing Bloodhound SSC as “An Engineering Adventure in South Africa” and talking about the technology, the preparation of the track, and the educational component of the project.Designed by project director Richard Noble, the Bloodhound SSC will reach a top speed of 1 610 km/h or 1 000 mph. The speed of sound on land is generally taken to be around 340 m/s or 1 236 km/h. This does vary with temperature.“This is faster than any fighter jet can travel at ground level,” says Green.Getting the kids interestedOne of Bloodhound SSC’s main goals is to inspire a new generation of scientists, mathematicians and engineers.“We need skilled people to solve the world’s problems,” says Green. “The solutions are there but do we have enough scientists to look after our future? We want to get kids interested in science, and excited about the fact that they’re getting science lessons in school.”The car is scheduled to arrive in South Africa for test runs in April 2014, which is later than previously announced but, says Dave Rowley, the project’s education director, it will give the team time to reach more schools.“We have 200 local schools signed up for our education programme,” Rowley says, “and 49 ambassadors who reach out to children from Grade One right up to university level.”The ambassadors visit these primary, secondary and tertiary educational institutions and promote not only the project, but also engineering, technology, maths and science.“They are crucial to our project,” Rowley says. “If we can make science more exciting in the classroom, it will change the face of education.”All data generated by the project, including research, design, manufacture and testing stages, are available to teachers and students of registered schools around the world.Advanced, unique technologyThe core development team is the same as that which worked on Thrust SSC, says Green, but they have more powerful computers this time around. Safety is foremost in the minds of everyone involved.The propulsion system and body are being built separately.Bloodhound SSC is powered by a borrowed Eurojet EJ200 aircraft engine and a Falcon hybrid rocket engine, with a Cosworth CA2010 Formula One engine as the auxiliary power supply. The engines together produce around 135 000 horsepower and will allow the car to cover the 20 km distance in two minutes.The EJ200 is taken from a Eurofighter Typhoon fighter plane and works on the same principle as an internal combustion engine. It will be the first engine fired up and will get Bloodhound SSC to an initial speed of about 563 km/h.The Falcon, which was originally planned to be the only power source, will kick in at this time, and the two together will boost the car up to 1 689 km/h in a mere 55 seconds, subjecting the driver to about 2g of force. This engine is a hybrid because it uses a solid synthetic rubber, Hydroxyl-Terminated Polybutadiene (HTPB), as its primary fuel, with a liquid oxidiser and a catalyst to ignite it.The Cosworth engine drives the rocket motor’s fuel pump, which can deliver 800 litres of hydrogen peroxide – the oxidiser for the HTPB in the rocket – to the engine in just 20 seconds.This hybrid approach will allow Green to shut off the oxidiser if necessary, extinguishing the rocket engine. Although the system is still in an early stage of development, in October 2012 the team ran a successful test-firing event. The Cosworth engine reached 16 600 rpm during the test, producing enough pressure to fill a bath in five seconds.To withstand the forces produced by these powerhouses, Bloodhound SSC’s body has to be extraordinarily robust.The front part of the 14-metre body is constructed from carbon fibre in the manner of a racing car, while the back is made of a titanium skin over a titanium frame in the upper section and a steel skin over aluminium frame in the lower section.The driver sits within the carbon fibre part, which provides a rigid reinforced structure for added safety. His seat is fireproof.The four wheels are made from solid aluminium, each weighing 95 kg and measuring 910 mm in diameter. Two are housed internally in the front and the two rear wheels are mounted outside the body.It will take a three-step braking system to safely stop this speeding projectile. The airbrakes deploy at 1 287 km/h, followed by the release of a parachute at 965 km/h and finally the rear wheel brakes can be used at 322 km/h. Green will experience about 3g of force during deceleration.When fully fuelled the car weighs about 7 800 kg. The total development costs are estimated at around R320-million (US$35-million), all of which is funded by sponsors.Green is confident and enthusiastic about the run. “It’s actually quite safe,” he says. “If all the factors are in place, nothing bad will happen. The car is built to be super-strong with the same safety margins as an aircraft. The aerodynamics are also key – we don’t want the car to lift off and that’s why it’s great that we have the experience of the people who worked on Thrust.”The youngsters will only be impressed with success, he says – “so we have to do it right.”Green anticipates some 30 test runs at Hakskeen during 2014, followed by the record attempt in 2015. “After testing we’ll take it back and make whatever modifications are necessary, then return in 2015 – so the kids will get two seasons of Bloodhound.”Communicating with the worldAnother essential component of the project is communications. To allow the control team to accurately monitor the conditions in the car in real time, the speed of data transmission must be as fast as possible.Local mobile provider MTN is the official telecoms partner. The company will be using long-term evolution (LTE) technology to transmit video, audio and data from the car to Upington and then the world, and will install R30-million ($3.3-million) worth of new infrastructure at the pan.Krishna Chetty, the GM for radio optimisation and planning at MTN, says: “Our LTE network for on-car video and diagnostics will upload data at about 600 km/h.”MTN will also provide 3G/HSPA 900 Mhz coverage for visitors and media at the pan.Community involvementThe nearby indigenous community of Mier is responsible for preparing the surface over which Bloodhound SSC will hurtle. The team has nothing but praise for their efforts.“The Northern Cape government has employed a workforce over the last three or four years to clear the surface of the pan. Their work has been outstanding,” says Green. “They’ve prepared the world’s best race track for the world’s fastest car with an attitude of excellence, to show the world that they can do this thing, and do it well.”The 300-strong team has cleared six tons of stone from more than 20-million square metres of the pan’s surface, producing a track that’s 20 kilometres long and 1.1 kilometres wide.Using a programme designed by Swansea University to sift through satellite imagery, and after numerous visits to survey potential sites, the pan was selected as the best site out of about 20 000 possibilities around the world.“The community has completely embraced the Bloodhound,” Green says. “When team members visit the site they ask us ‘Where’s our car?’ They’re very proud to be involved.”Unemployment in the community stands at about 96%, but with increasing interest in the Bloodhound project, it is hoped that tourism in the area will grow, with a knock-on benefit for the people. Already the first Kalahari Speedweek in 2012 brought hundreds of speed freaks to Hakskeen to test their vehicles on a five-kilometre track near to the Bloodhound site. The presence of the Bloodhound during the next two visits will swell the numbers of visitors significantly, but anyone can visit the pan in the meantime.The community will also benefit from the cutting-edge communications infrastructure.There are other South African contributions, and Green commends those too. “A company here built a bespoke trailer with aluminium wheels that we can use to test the interaction of the wheels on the track.”Once the track has been cleared it will be scanned with a laser to check for bumps and inconsistencies, and graded to be utterly smooth and level.“These contributions will allow us to correctly set the suspension up ahead of time.”last_img read more

For the Future Lady with a purpose

first_imgShireen Ramjoo (pictured above) believes that girls must look beyond their struggles to be the women they want to be; her website, For the Future Lady, offers the career and educational guidance they need to get there (images: Bhekumuzi Mdakane)“I always felt my teenage years were lost; when other teenagers were experiencing things and finding out more about themselves, I was saddled with a baby and a family to take care of. Today I think of things differently. I have come to realise that God never gives anyone anything they cannot handle, no matter how unfortunate the situation might seem,” says Shireen Ramjoo (31), founder of For the Future Lady.Ramjoo established For the Future Lady in February 2014, to help young women remember their dreams and look beyond their current struggles.“When you are at a place where you realise that you are one with the universe, one with every other living organism within it, you suddenly see the beauty that you did not see before you … what I have learnt is that a person will start to accept who they are and let go of any hurt, anger and negative feelings … through a spiritual awakening,” she says.“The person will suddenly start seeing the world in a different way and their previous views and opinions may change drastically.”CAREER GUIDANCE AND DAILY INSPIRATIONRamjoo says she has “interviewed a large number of people … and realised that not everyone knows how to construct a good-looking resume”.She adds, “I have noticed that at times not everyone knows of the options available for them to secure their funding for university as some come from a poor background and other families are just not well informed of how to go about it.”These insights are the main drivers behind For the Future Lady, which is an “online inspirational youth development hub”. It provides information on career options; finding a dream job; composing resumes; and interview preparation. It links to job vacancies, internships and apprenticeships, and provides information on funding for tertiary education, as Ramjoo believes education can help young girls look beyond their current struggles and work towards being the women they want to be.EVERYONE HAS A STORYHer website provides information on career options; finding a dream job; composing resumes; and interview preparation and also links to job vacancies, internships and apprenticeshipsBorn in Dundee in KwaZulu-Natal, Ramjoo says she “always felt like she had a bigger or higher purpose”.On moving to Johannesburg in 2001, she says, “I was on a high; my time had come, what more could I have asked for. What I thought freedom was back then is not what I know now. From a small town to the big city, I felt as if I had arrived and my dreams were only a step away. Anxious, enthusiastic and excited about what life had to offer, I can recall how naïve I was.”After moving to Johannesburg in 2001, Ramjoo found she was pregnant in September 2001; she went back to Dundee to have her baby, and returned to Johannesburg in 2002 to further her studies. She says, “I loved that I always had that fighting spirit and somehow knew that I had immense courage.“We all walk different paths; we all have stories to tell; we walk amongst ordinary heroes and heroines in our societies. It really does not matter where you come from, it’s where you see your life going to that’s important.”She concludes, “I could have chosen to allow life’s challenges to set me back, but I used it as a motivator to propel me forward. When you realise that every day is an opportunity to allow for growth within yourself, no matter what challenges life presents to you, you will know that you are bigger than that. I did it and so can you.”For more information visit Shireen Ramjoo or email [email protected]last_img read more

North Carolina’s Smithfield lawsuits: Could Ohio’s farmers face similar results?

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Ellen Essman, Sr. Research Associate Ohio State University Agricultural and Resource Law ProgramOver the last several months, three nuisance cases have been decided against Smithfield Foods in federal court in North Carolina. The juries in the cases have found Smithfield’s large farms, with thousands of hogs, and the odor, traffic, and flies that come along with them, to be a nuisance to neighboring landowners. Smithfield has been ordered to pay hefty damages to the neighbors, and more cases against the company remain to be decided. Given the outcomes of the cases that have been decided thus far, farmers and landowners in Ohio might be wondering how Ohio law compares to North Carolina law as pertains to agricultural nuisances. Ohio’s right-to-farm lawMany states, including both Ohio and North Carolina, have “right-to-farm” legislation, which in part is meant to protect agriculture from nuisance lawsuits such as those filed against Smithfield. While nearly every state has a right-to-farm statute, they do differ in language and how they go about protecting agriculture.Ohio farmers have right-to-farm protection in two parts of the Revised Code. ORC Chapter 929 establishes “agricultural districts.” Generally, in order to place land in an agricultural district, the owner of the land must file an application with the county auditor. Certain requirements must be met in order for an application to be accepted. Slightly different rules apply if the land in question is within a municipal corporation or is being annexed by a municipality. If the application is accepted, the land is placed in an agricultural district for five years. The owner may submit a renewal application after that time is up.Being part of an agricultural district in Ohio can help farmers and landowners to defend against civil lawsuits. ORC 929.04 reads:In a civil action for nuisances involving agricultural activities, it is a complete defense if:The agricultural activities were conducted within an agricultural district;Agricultural activities were established within the agricultural district prior to the plaintiff’s activities or interest on which the action is based;The plaintiff was not involved in agricultural production; andThe agricultural activities were not in conflict with federal, state, and local laws and rules relating to the alleged nuisance or were conducted in accordance with generally accepted agriculture practices.The ORC’s chapter on nuisances provides additional protection for those “engaged in agriculture-related activities.” Under ORC 3767.13, people who are practicing agricultural activities “outside a municipal corporation, in accordance with generally accepted agricultural practices, and in such a manner so as not to have a substantial, adverse effect on public health, safety, or welfare” are typically exempt from claims of nuisance due to farm noise, smells, etc. North Carolina’s right-to-farm lawMuch like Ohio, North Carolina farmland can be part of an “agricultural district.” This program is meant to protect agricultural land — land that is part of an agricultural district is must be used for agriculture for at least 10 years. However, unlike Ohio’s law, North Carolina does not specifically spell out that land in agricultural districts will be protected from nuisance suits when the landowner follows the rules of the agricultural district. North Carolina’s law does state that one of the purposes of agricultural districts is to “increase protection from nuisance suits and other negative impacts on properly managed farms,” but unlike Ohio, it does not explicitly state that being part of an agricultural district is a defense to a nuisance lawsuit.North Carolina also has a statute which specifically spells out the right-to-farm. In response to the recent jury decisions, however, North Carolina has changed its right-to-farm law. The original law read:(a) No agricultural or forestry operation or any of its appurtenances shall be or become a nuisance, private or public, by any changed conditions in or about the locality outside of the operation after the operation has been in operation for more than one year, when such an operation was not a nuisance at the time the operation began.(a1) The provisions of subsection (a) of this section shall not apply when the plaintiff demonstrates that the agricultural or forestry operation has undergone a fundamental change. A fundamental change does not include any of the following:A change in ownership or size.An interruption of farming for a period of no more than three years.Participation in a government-sponsored agricultural program.Employment of new technology.A change in the type of agricultural or forestry product produced.The original law did not protect agricultural operations if their actions were negligent or improper. Following the first decision against Smithfield, the North Carolina legislature overrode the Governor’s veto to implement amendments to the state’s right-to-farm law. In the amendments (sections 106-701 and 106-702) the legislature substantially changed the language of the law, making what constitutes a nuisance much more explicit and dependent on certain factors. What is more, the new version of the law places limits on when plaintiffs can recover punitive damages for a private nuisance action.A comparison of the Ohio and North Carolina’s sections of legislation promoting the “right-to-farm” shows how different the two states are. Ohio’s legislative language makes it obvious that the meaning of the law is to protect agriculture from nuisance suits — by specifically stating that being in an agricultural district is a complete defense to nuisance, and that otherwise, agriculture is generally exempt from nuisance suits. North Carolina’s law concerning agricultural districts does not specifically state that being in such a district is a defense to nuisance, instead, it simply expresses the hope that districts will “increase protection from nuisance suits.” Furthermore, while North Carolina’s original right-to-farm law stated that agricultural operations do not “become a nuisance” due to changed conditions in the community, that language is not very specific. Ohio’s agricultural district language lays out exactly what must be done to have a complete defense against a nuisance lawsuit; North Carolina’s language in multiple parts of the General Statutes does not have the same degree of specificity. Permit as a defense to nuisanceIn addition to the right-to-farm law, under ORC 903.13, those owning, operating, or responsible for concentrated animal feeding facilities in Ohio have an affirmative defense to a private civil action for nuisance against them if the CAFO is “in compliance with best management practices” established in their installation of a disposal system or operation permits. North Carolina does not appear to have similar language protecting permitted farms in its General Statutes. Other factors that may come into playIn the lawsuits against Smithfield farms, the lawyers for the plaintiffs (neighboring landowners) have continuously asserted that Smithfield has “means and ability” to “reduce the nuisance from existing facilities” by ending the use of “lagoon and sprayfield” systems at their farms. Plaintiffs stress that not only is Smithfield Foods, Inc. a large, wealthy, multinational company, but that they have also changed their lagoon and sprayfield practices outside of North Carolina. In lagoon and sprayfield systems, all waste is collected in an open-air lagoon and then sprayed on fields as fertilizer. The practice was first banned for new construction in North Carolina in 1997, and in 2007, the state permanently banned the practice for newly constructed swine facilities. Although many of the facilities in question were opened before any ban on the construction of lagoon and sprayfield facilities, the plaintiffs contend that changes made in other states mean Smithfield can afford to change in North Carolina. The ban on new lagoon and sprayfield systems in North Carolina, and evidence that Smithfield has used different practices to reduce the smell from the farms in other states, likely helped the juries in the cases that have been tried to date find that the farms are a nuisance to their neighbors. The above argument is something operators of livestock facilities in Ohio should be aware of. Although Ohio has not specifically banned lagoon and sprayfield systems like North Carolina has, the ability to change the system could still potentially be used to argue nuisance. Ohio operators are supposed to follow best management practices and the Natural Resources Conservation Service’s Field Office Technical guide when applying and storing manure, which include ways to reduce odor from manure and other applications, as well as reducing other types of nutrient pollution. Following such guidelines would likely help operators in any argument against nuisance.last_img read more

Release of Google’s Ghonim Rejuvenates Protesters in Cairo

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… curt hopkins Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img Tags:#Google#international#politics#web The notion of the distant, uninvolved and uninvested nerd has taken a well deserved beating in the last few years. But archetypes have an amazing tenancity, even when they’ve outgrown their value. I wonder if the notion of the empathy-free computer weirdo will survive the Egyptian uprising. Geeks have helped cut off Egyptians get back online and remain witnesses during a trying time; they’ve arranged crowdsourced translations of tweets sent in via another geeky guerrilla tool; and now, one of them has single-handedly resuscitated a flagging uprising. Google‘s head of marketing for the MENA region, Wael Ghonim, was released on February 7 after a week and a half of imprisonment. During his imprisonment, the executive could not communicate with anyone. Once he was released, however, he talked with a number of independent Egyptian television news channels. His example and words seem to have had a tangible effect on the commitment of the protesters. The hundreds of thousands in Cairo’s Tahrir Square is apparently the largest turnout yet. The numbers of people out in Egypt had tapered off the previous few days. Ghonim would be the last one to credit himself with “single-handedly” doing anything. He cautioned anyone against calling him a hero. And he’s right. Not only is this not Ghonim’s revolution, it’s not Twitter’s either, not Facebook’s not even the geeks’. It’s the people’s uprising in as pure a form as anyone could hope to see it. That said, however, individuals, as well as groups, have their parts to play. Anyone who favors a deterministic view of history would probably find Ghonim something of a fly in the ointment. But, it really is the Egyptian people responding to something of themselves they see in the Google exec. Ghonim’s emotional honesty, his criticism of the interior minister who facilitated his release (no Stockholm Syndrome for Ghonim), his refusal to allow himself to take the place of the people in the media consciousness – all of that seems to have inspired the better angels of the Egyptian people. If Ghonim is kept blindfolded and incommunicado for over a week in a security service cell and come out a functional human who still believes in the power of the people, can they do any less? We attempted to ask Mr. Ghonim a few questions, but he tweeted that he does not speak to foreign media. Regarding the video below, Alive in Egypt is working out some bugs.
