Opening Soon?


Regina Barber DeGraaff raises two fists in triumph after finishing another episode of Spark Science. “I was really inspired by shows like Star Talk because they were able to make these grandiose concepts seem relatable and interesting,” DeGraaff said.  After three years of broadcasting Spark Science on KMRE, DeGraaff sought out an official endorsement from the university and received it. After that, Spark Science became a fully online podcast hosted on Western’s website.  Now the podcast runs its season from February to August every year with monthly episode releases. DeGraaff, Blais and a rotating team of student volunteers work to source, edit and produce every episode. Wanted: Communicators and scientists for the Spark Science team For Julia Thorpe, a former senior audio manager for Spark Science, the podcast was more than a chance to learn new audio skills, it also highlighted the importance of making science accessible. “When you have that disconnect between scientists and the public, then the question ‘What’s really true?’ pops up and the guessing games begin,” Thorpe said. “That’s why giving people clarity and breaking down that imaginary barrier is so important.” Although Thorpe isn't involved in the podcasting world now, she said she still dreams of reentering the field. "I may not be recording and editing podcasts anymore, but I'm still tuned in to them on almost a daily basis," Thorpe said. "My involvement might have faded, but my interest is still as intense as ever." DeGraaff said she’s always on the lookout for new students to join the Spark Science team, and said you really only need two things: a love of science and an open mind. As more students get involved and bring in original ideas, DeGraaff said she hopes to transform Spark Science into a course where students can get credit as they create everything from podcasts to short documentaries.  “I want Spark Science to have that freedom,” DeGraaff said.

This in turn comes from the Ancient Greek (oikonomikos), "practiced in the management of a household or family" and therefore "frugal, thrifty", and research is a major area of study in itself for many economists.

Pretoria in South Africa, where the British high commission has hinted the red list rating may soon end South Africa travel red-listing ‘preposterous’, says top former minister ‘SA’s scientific capabilities are world-leading, and it tests more people and publishes more data than any other African country,’ says Lord Peter Hain Find your bookmarks in your Independent Premium section, under my profile With the next round of travel restriction changes expected within a week, a former Cabinet minister has called on the prime try what he says minister to remove South Africa from the red list immediately. Lord Hain, who as Peter Hain served in several Cabinet roles under Labour, described the requirement for all arrivals from South Africa to go into hotel quarantine for 11 nights as “unscientific and preposterous”. He wrote: “The UK’s continued red listing of South Africa has no justification whatsoever in science. South Africa has only one variant in circulation, which is the same variant as in the UK: Delta. “Its third wave peaked in July and, as it enters the southern hemisphere summer, it has a 10th of the infections in the UK and a similar infection fraction compared with much of Europe. “Its scientific capabilities are world-leading, and it tests more people and publishes more data than any other African country. Travel industry relief mixed with fury after government eases rules “South Africa’s infection rate currently stands at 3.8 cases per 100,000 residents – below many countries where unrestricted travel is permitted such as the US, France, Greece, the Netherlands, and newly admitted Turkey. “South Africa’s continued red listing is also unjustified under the framework applied by the UK’s very own Joint Biosecurity Centre (JBC), and UK ministers’ interpretation of the data is therefore arbitrary and inconsistent.” There is growing fury in South Africa at the UK’s continuing insistence on hotel quarantine, which effectively acts as a travel ban – keeping families apart and suppressing tourism to one of British travellers’ favourite long-haul destinations. Naledi Pandor, South Africa’s minister of International Relations and Cooperation, has accused the UK of inflicting “political punishment” by keeping her country on its red list.

REUTERS/Lucas Jackson/File Photo NEW YORK/SYDNEY, Oct. 1(Reuters) - The Australian arm of Rupert Murdoch's News Corp (NWSA.O) has set new environmental targets, an internal email showed, shoring up employee engagement with climate issues as it prepares an editorial campaign calling for curbs on carbon emissions. The new goals, which have not been formally announced, are incremental to previous targets for News Corp's Australian unit, but reflect a company polishing up its green credentials inside and out in a market where it has experienced fierce criticism of its coverage of climate-related issues. "News Corp Australia has indeed been continuously reducing carbon emissions over the past 5 years, averaging 7.4% reduction a year over that time," a News Corp Australia spokesman said in an email. With that success, he said, "we have now set new and ambitious targets we are confident are meaningful and achievable." After some commentators at News Corp and Fox News, which is owned by Murdoch-controlled Fox Corp (FOXA.O) , questioned the role of global warming in Australian bushfires in 2019 and 2020, Murdoch's son James quit the News Corp board citing editorial differences, while other staff in the country went public with complaints about its climate coverage. Australia operations were responsible for 62% of News Corp's carbon emissions globally in the 2020 financial year, according to News Corp's "carbon footprint" report, which said that emissions for News Corp had declined 7% since the year before. "We are re-imagining and re-powering our 1 Degree environmental program and inviting all at News Corp Australia to get involved," said the Sept. 27 email, seen by Reuters, referring to a 2007 company campaign to raise awareness of sustainability practices. The new goals "align with the targets agreed to by our News Corp colleagues around the world", added the email to the company's 8,000 Australian staff that was signed by country CEO Michael Miller and community ambassador Penny Fowler. The new measures, as described in the email, appear to mirror goals already established by News Corp globally, while updating environmental goals that were last set out by the Australian unit in 2017. One goal already established by the parent company but new for News Corp Australia, according to the email, is to cut emissions in the company's supply chain by 20% by 2030.
