Weekly MP Report from Jay Hill

first_imgIn addition to ecoENERGY programming, our Conservative Government is investing in the environment and energy through the $1-billion Green Infrastructure Fund and the $1-billion Clean Energy Fund. Both programs offer exciting potential to open development opportunities in northern B.C. with green infrastructure, such as new power generation and transmission lines. The federal government is investing $20.5-million over the next 10 years to the wind park through ecoENERGY for Renewable Power, a $1.5-billion program which is designed to increase Canada’s supply of clean electricity from renewable sources such as wind, biomass, hydro, geothermal, solar and ocean energy. – Advertisement -The Bear Mountain Wind Park project, just outside Dawson Creek, has reached its midpoint in construction and starting in October 2009 will become British Columbia’s first fully-operational wind farm. The Bear Mountain Wind project has generated hundreds of local jobs during construction and, when it comes online it will create more employment and training to meet its operational and maintenance needs. It will also power up to 25,000 homes. Clean, renewable, greenhouse gas and pollution-free energy brought to you by LOCAL innovation, cooperation and partnerships! Throughout this month, I will be travelling throughout our constituency meeting with community and business leaders to discuss how our Conservative Government will continue to partner with them and invest in many more new and exciting local initiatives. Plus, our local industries and resource-dependent communities are benefitting from specialized, targeted programs like the $1-billion Community Adjustment Fund which, over the next two years, will support projects that create real local jobs.Advertisement When completed the Bear Mountain Wind Park will have 34 turbines with a total capacity of 102 megawatts, covering 25 hectares of land on top of Bear Mountain. I was pleased to join representatives of AltaGas Ltd. in celebrating this important milestone for B.C. While there are other wind farms in the works in our province, I am very proud that Prince George-Peace River is home to the first that will be fully up and running!Advertisement These investments are not only important for the environment and to meet future power and development demands, they are also a pivotal component in our response to the global economic downturn. Canada’s Economic Action Plan is investing $62-billion towards improving infrastructure and stimulating our economy when it needs it most. ecoENERGY for Renewable Power provides a one cent per kilowatt-hour incentive to each approved project, with the goal of increasing Canada’s renewable electricity capacity by more than 4,000 megawatts, or enough to power a million homes. This investment will also reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution equivalent to taking one million cars off the road. More than 80 percent of those measures are already being implemented, including new permanent tax cuts; enhanced EI benefits and expanded work-sharing programs to avoid layoffs; new and improved bridges, roads, sewers, water systems and recreational facilities. You’ve probably noticed recent construction and activity in and around your community. MP Report by Jay Hill, M.P.“Federal Investment Supports B.C.’s First Operational Wind Farm”This week I was excited to participate in a very special celebration demonstrating the success of our Conservative Government’s renewable energy and environmental programs.last_img read more

25 Billion Mobile App Downloads by 2015

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Tags:#mobile#Trends#web sarah perez Consumers will have downloaded 25 billion mobile applications to their smartphones by the year 2015, claims market research firm Juniper Research in a report released today. That’s an increase from less than 2.6 billion applications in 2009. Part of this projected increase is due to the launch of additional “app stores” worldwide, including those in large markets like China and India. However, cautions the report, just mimicking Apple’s model alone may not be enough. “Customers are buying the iPhone for the apps,” says report author Dr. Windsor Holden. “That’s not been the case with other handsets.”Big Markets, Lots of DownloadsThe report specifically makes mention of app store efforts from China Unicom, India’s Bharti and the Vodafone 360 app and games shop, the latter available on 247 mobile networks in more than 60 countries. Also mentioned is GetJar, a cross-platform mobile application store which just exceeded 1 billion downloads last month. Although perhaps not a household name yet, GetJar offers around 65,000 applications (compared to Apple’s 225,000, for example). The company aims to triple its revenue over the course of the next year, double its workforce and make its online store more reliable and user-friendly, GetJar CMO Patrick Mork told the Wall St. Journal in June. 25 Billion by 2015…or 50 Billion by 2012? Conflicting Reports ConfuseIn that same article, Mork said consumers would download 7 billion applications to their handsets in 2009, a number much higher than that reported by Juniper today. He also said that 50 billion apps would be downloaded in 2012, a number twice as large as the one being reported for 2015 by Juniper’s report. Mork didn’t pull those numbers out of thin air, however. They come from a report GetJar commissioned, released in March. Consulting firm Chetan Sharma Consulting performed an independent study which predicted a year-over-year growth rate of 92% for mobile app downloads, with an economy that would generate $17.5 billion in sales by 2012. Whether or not you want to believe those numbers or the more conservative predictions from Juniper, however, is up to you. We feel more comfortable with Juniper’s numbers, though, over those from a commissioned study financed by an app store company. Don’t Just Copy Apple Juniper’s report also warns that simply copying the Apple “iTunes App Store” model may not be enough to encourage developers to build apps for a particular platform. (Case in point: Palm’s webOS or Nokia’s OVI store, perhaps?) Instead, an app store would need to demonstrate sufficient scale in order for developers to get involved. After noting that people are buying the iPhone specifically for the apps, Holden said the same may not be true for other mobile manufacturers. “Even if you have a subscriber base of tens of millions,” says Holden, “your addressable market is a fraction of that – and spread across a variety of operating systems and handsets.” Also according to Holden, “freemium” is now becoming the prevalent business model for mobile applications, with in-app purchases, subscription services, micropayments for virtual items and upgrades to premium content as the method for monetizing a developer’s efforts.

How Many Digits Of Pi You Have To Have Memorized To Be

3.1415926535 3.141526 If you can get to the first 3 after the decimal point, you’re in the top 5 percent of pi memorizers. I asked the people who got that far to keep going, and most tapped out shortly after.The biggest drop came after “3.14,” as respondents who got that far made it to “3.141” only about 52 percent of the time.And that’s fine!NASA employees can probably get away with knowing only the first six digits after the decimal point. Also, we have calculators for when we need a few more digits, TI-89s for when those calculators are insufficient and Wolfram Alpha for when we reduce those calculators to a smoking, melted mess.Maybe after the highly anticipated apocalypse, the guys at the Large Hadron Collider will be happy to have that dude who memorized tens of thousands of pi digits around, but for now, he’s just got a weird hobby. Knowing pi is strictly a performative act, like people who readily volunteer their SAT score or high school completion percentage.But, uh, happy holidays. Today is Pi Day — the day each year, March 14, that follows the first three digits of pi (3.14). And this year’s Pi Day is a special one: Since — in the U.S. — the date is represented as 3/14/15, we have the first five digits of pi on the calendar.That’s news for some people. When it comes to how many digits of pi people know by heart, the majority only know 3.14. Which is fine! Unless you’re building a bridge, that’s the most you will really need to know.I asked SurveyMonkey Audience to put out a poll to see how far people could get reciting the infinite digits of pi. Of 941 respondents, 836 attempted to name the digits after the decimal point. This is how far they got: 3.173 3.1415919 3.14133 3.141592610 3.141592657 3.14159212 LEVEL OF PRECISIONPERCENTAGE OF RESPONDENTS 3.1464 read more
