first_imgThe growing popularity of digital devices has spurred the need for integrated circuits that are lightweight, consume ultra-low power and are highly efficient. Technology companies are increasingly focusing on nanoelectronics for developing such devices, but using nanomaterial like graphene is still challenging as there is little evidence of it showing intrinsic magnetism. Now researchers from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Hyderabad, and University of Hyderabad have shown that graphene can be made magnetic with control over its electric field and temperature. They have shown this in single layer zigzag graphene nanoribbons. Also Read – A special kind of bondGraphene, a carbon material, is the thinnest and strongest material known. It came into the limelight after its exceptional quantum properties fetched Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics. Since then, many research projects have focussed on its applications in nanoelectronics. The team exploited intrinsic magnetism in this lightweight soft magnetic material, and also observed occurrence of various magnetic phases and its transitions from one phase to another. Also Read – Insider threat managementIt designed a methodology to identify the position of the appeared magnetic phases, moving towards making ‘graphene chip’ a reality in future. When a laptop or mobile phone gets overheated, one begins to panic that the chips inside would have burnt out. That’s why some phone manufacturers nowadays claim that their phone chipsets are based on 14nm finfet technology and that they have advanced thermal management. Yet, we still face heating issues. Just imagine a situation where the heat generated via the chipset could be harnessed to perform computations. What if the temperature and electric field can be utilised to induce magnetism in graphene nanoribbons? There are already reported instances in scientific literature that electric field and temperature can be individually used for controlling or inducing magnetism. In order to make ‘graphene processors’ a reality, the key issue to be addressed is thermal management. To achieve this, we need a mechanism which could harness excess heat generated in the operation of gadgets to induce magnetism. The group envisaged a processor application using a single-layer zigzag graphene nanoribbon which could potentially harness heat generated in the system, to reduce the voltage requirement and to perform computations using spins. The researchers performed a computational study on pristine free standing single layer zig-zag graphene nanoribbons typically in the size of 1 to 50 nanometers to study magnetic properties. They could induce intrinsic magnetism in nonmagnetic graphene by application of electric field and temperature. At a particular value of electric field and temperature, paramagnetism was seen and further tuning to different values led to achievement of ferromagnetism and anti-ferromagnetism. It was observed that if one value (say electric field) is kept constant, the other value (temperature) can be increased or decreased to obtain different magnetic phases and vice versa. This means that if one’s laptop is generating high temperature, lower electric field could achieve the distinct magnetic phases in nanoribbons. Not limiting themselves to electric field and temperature, the researchers also built a bow-tie scheme to induce magnetism in majority of the carbon allotropes. This thermo-electromagnetic effect and unusual behaviour of magnetism in graphene which is tunable are definitely a stepping stone towards graphene electronics. The work could pave the way for stretching performance of integrated circuits and eventually lead to realisation of laptops powered by graphene-based microprocessors.

Patricia Licuanan, Chair of the Commission on Higher Education of the Philippines, recalled the moment of the agreement and the “high” she felt afterwards, saying she still felt some remnants of that sensation, particularly when she considered that the Declaration “broke ground” on violence against women, which it helped transform from a private, domestic concern that could be shrouded by culture and tradition.She made this assessment at the high-level opening of the Commission on the Status of Women, which is meeting in New York through 17 March. Global leaders and activists are expected to take stock of progress and remaining challenges for implementing this landmark Beijing Declaration. And to that end, the first half of the day-long session wrapped up with the adoption of a new A Political Declaration on actions to achieve gender equality and women’s empowerment by 2030, including through significantly increased investment to close existing wide shortfalls.Ms. Licuanan said the most special feature of the negotiation process at Beijing was its highly participatory nature and the broad based engagement. The partnership with non-governmental organizations, while not without tension, was “unparalleled” and decision-making had been participatory and non-hierarchical, in a conference attended by more than 50,000 people.Today, however, “old” areas of concern, like the feminization of poverty, economic participation, health, education, political participation and human rights remained high on the agenda, she said, calling for Beijing+20 to proceed aware of lessons learned from the two decades that have passed.Such lessons, she said, include the fact that Beijing+20 takes place in a very different setting to the original conference. When ‘women and the environment’ was on the agenda in 1995, it provoked questions about the links between the two concepts but today, the links between environment, climate change, disasters and women’s connection to them is taken as read.At the same time, much has not changed, she acknowledged, particularly on contentious issues like reproductive health and rights and sexual, both of which remained “highly controversial with little prospect of consensus.”Other lessons included the recognition that gender equality in countries’ laws was vital but still insufficient to guarantee de facto equality, that gender mainstreaming was effective only when accompanied by strong empowerment entities, that data was an extremely powerful tool in convincing people of the validity of arguments in favour of equality, and that allies and friends could come in all shapes and sizes, with all of them valuable.The significance of the Beijing Declaration also featured prominently in the address by Song Xiuyan, Vice-Chair of the National Working Committee on Children and Women under the State Council of China, who told delegates that the Declaration represented the international community’s “solemn commitment for equality, development and peace” and that, since it was adopted in 1995, women’s rights and interests had been put under better legal protection, women gained more opportunities to seek education and achieve employment and more attention had been given to vulnerable women groups.“The UN and its relevant agencies have made tremendous efforts to this end,” she said, noting that the Beijing Declaration represented the “most important policy document” for women’s progress. “We should cherish the legacy of the Beijing conference.”Nevertheless, she continued, as the 20th anniversary fast approaches, the international community must focus on the remaining difficulties and challenges regarding women’s development.“Let us work together, hand in hand for further advancement of women’s status and for the better future of all,” said Ms. Song. “Let us continue to take actions and never relent until our common goals become a reality.”Lydia Alpízar, the Executive Director of the Association for Women’s Rights in Development, also assessed the progress made in the 20 years since the Beijing Declaration, delivering an impassioned speech that drew loud cheers from the seats of the General Assembly.She said it was important to acknowledge that progress made in the 20 years since Beijing was limited. An overwhelming lack of political commitment, lack of resources, the rise of religious fundamentalism and “plain old sexism and misogyny” was among factors that had hampered progress. Challenges such as inequality, exploitation, fundamentalism in all religions and threats from non-State actors like corporations, which held inordinate power over land and resources, needed tackling, she said.Since 1995, she had seen “the criminalization of dissent,” and meaningful participation in politics by individuals had been limited and could be seen in the exclusion of civil society groups from negotiating the new Declaration. That represented “a step backward” and, as a result, the text of the declaration was weak and did not go far enough towards the transformative change needed.She called for greater commitment on financial resources to support the work of women’s movements worldwide and the implementation of agreements on gender equality. The resources, she said, were there. They just needed to be directed towards prioritising gender equality and women’s rights. In doing so, human rights, such as sexual and reproductive rights, should not be traded-off, she urged, underlining the fact that women and girls die as a result of such discrimination.Alaa Murabit, who spoke as a representative of Libyan women and a member of UN Women’s Global Civil Society Advisory Committee talked about the criticism she had received in the past for her impatience, particularly her impatience to achieve gender equality. She said she remained unclear as to why her attitude was seen negatively.She pointed to her experiences of being told that she did not understand the realities of security simply because she chose not to carry a gun, and stressed that women peacebuilders like herself were “challenging the root causes of extremism” and making changes right now, walking into schools, homes and workplaces and giving communities the real tools necessary to combat extremism.She said her generation was able to contribute a great deal to the struggle, not least because of their increased access to and understanding of modern technology. They gave “confused” youth “weapons of peace” and engaged other women in peacebuilding initiatives and empowered them.“Women must stick together to promote safety and dignity,” she said. “The message is not new.” read more

I can’t say when and where and if it’s going to be tomorrow, but I don’t think we have any other choice. The language (of the Constitution) is so clear that if the Speaker is not prepared to just carry out the requirements of the Constitution, then we have to go to the next level.”“All week you have been asking me have I got an answer (from the Speaker). And I kept saying, we’re giving him time. We didn’t want to be pushing him and saying in the press, he’s not answering. We were giving him a chance. Well he had all week for his chance. For him to say there’s no proof to do with Prime Minister Sam Hinds means for the whole week, no research was done.”Opposition PPP/C Chief Whip, Gail TeixeiraAccording to Teixeira, it should have been easy to prove that former Prime Minister Samuel Hinds set a precedent by excusing himself whenever acting as President. She noted that for one, documents to these effects are right at Parliament.“It would have been very simple. The instruments that swear in a Prime Minister comes here. A copy comes here. All they had to do was go and pick out any time between 1992 and 2015, pull out a couple dates and check the minutes.”“And they would have found their proof. Prime Minister Sam Hinds did not come to this house when he was carrying out the functions of President because of these constitutional primers.”Meanwhile, former Attorney General Anil Nandlall noted that much more is at stake than Nagamootoo. According to Nandlall in a statement on the issue, the respect for a National Assembly that upholds the rule of law without fear or favour is at stake.“In a letter to the press, I detailed the relevant provisions of the Constitution in support of (our) contention. No one has since proffered a conflicting opinion. Indeed, former Speaker, Mr Ralph Ramkarran, SC, who once expressed a contrary view, finally concurred with me. The relevant constitutional provisions were explicitly set out in our letter to the Speaker. After five days, today, the Speaker responded. The response was disappointing.”Nandlall observed that rather than address the simply issue raised, the Speaker “vacillated for three long pages”. Nandlall noted that the Standing Committee on Constitutional Reform, to which the matter was referred, has a mandate to consider proposals for constitutional reform.“So rather than ensuring compliance with the Constitution in its current form, the Speaker, apparently, is recommending its reform,” Nandlall said.“Our Parliament must be the laughing stock of the Commonwealth. How can the public have respect for our Parliament… and the laws of this land, when the makers of the law are treating the supreme law with such disregard?”When President David Granger is out of the jurisdiction, Prime Minister Nagamootoo usually leads Government even while acting as President. With the budget estimates being examined and a no-confidence motion scheduled, the parliamentary Opposition finally demanded he vacate his seat until the President returned.The Prime Minister has consistently defended his presence, saying this only applies for a Minister.The Committee, meanwhile, is chaired by Attorney General Basil Williams. It has a total of eight members, drawn evenly from the Government and the Opposition.The National Assembly is meanwhile expected to convene again on December 21, this time to debate a no-confidence motion against the Government. read more

first_imgIn comments submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today, the American Soybean Association (ASA) disagreed with the conclusions of a recent report from EPA that calls into question the efficacy of neonicotinoid seed treatments in soybean operations.In the association’s comments, ASA President and Brownfield, Texas, farmer Wade Cowan pointed out that “…soybean producers use neonicotinoid seed treatments where they are needed and effective, and don’t use them where not.” Cowan also argued that recent research from Mississippi showing approximately 90 percent adoption of neonicotinoid seed treatments signals that the technology does work for farmers in certain areas.In the comments, Cowan noted that neonicotinoid seed treatment use is tailored to a very specific set of circumstances, and in those settings, that particular technology is critical, “Farmers balance the efficacy of different treatments based on their individual farms, and experience shows that farmers who purchase seed treatment for soybeans do so because it reduces or eliminates the need for application of additional inputs after the soybean seedling has emerged,” he said. “Seed treatments both protect the soybeans from insects in the soil after planting as well as protecting the seedlings as they emerge. A below-ground insect infestation has no rescue options except replanting, and in the northern growing regions, replanting is not often an option.”“EPA must not allow political pressure to lead to restrictions on crop protection tools,” concluded Cowan. “We have appreciated EPA’s science-based decision-making in evaluating crop protection products, particularly as they are wrongly singled out as the cause of pollinator decline. We urge EPA to maintain its commitment to science in evaluating crop protection tools.”A full transcript of ASA’s comments can be downloaded here.last_img read more

first_imgCD5, ConocoPhillips’ first oil development within the boundaries of NPR-A. (Photo by Elizabeth Harball/Alaska’s Energy Desk)It may be called the “National Petroleum Reserve,” but the 23-million-acre chunk of federal land on the North Slope didn’t see a full-scale oil development until 2015. As this new era begins, the Bureau of Land Management is adding another layer of protection to this vast, sensitive area.Listen nowDepending on who you ask, the agency is either asking too much of oil companies or not enough.Last month at the Bureau of Land Management’s lease sale for the the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska (NPR-A), a pattern emerged: the oil company ConocoPhillips was winning — again and again and again.ConocoPhillips picked up close to 600,000 acres in the National Petroleum Reserve last month. The company is behind the first oil project in Reserve, called CD5, and it’s steaming ahead with two more developments there, Greater Mooses Tooth 1 and Greater Mooses Tooth 2.But Conoco is clashing with its landlord, the BLM. The federal agency is working on new, tougher requirements for oil development in NPR-A.Oil companies are already required to minimize their footprint as much as possible, like by restricting traffic when caribou are nearby, but Stacie McIntosh, BLM’s Arctic Office Manager, explains some impacts are impossible to avoid. For example, an oil development could overlap with the subsistence hunting area used by the people who live nearby.“There’s always going to be residual impacts because a development is going to remove a certain amount of acreage from a community’s harvest area,” McIntosh said.That’s where this new strategy comes in: BLM will expect companies to compensate for the unavoidable impacts of oil development. For example, an oil company could build a road to provide access to other hunting areas.But Conoco strongly opposes the new approach. In a letter to BLM, the company called a draft of the strategy “a polarizing document” that has “major flaws.” The company said there are already hundreds of requirements in place to protect the National Petroleum Reserve. Conoco also said BLM isn’t taking into account the benefits of oil development, like job opportunities for local communities.A spokeswoman for ConocoPhillips declined to comment beyond the letter, but plenty of others were willing to speak out.“We’re in a situation where the bar is constantly being raised and it’s becoming evermore challenging in terms of economically exploring and developing the resources in NPR-A,” Carl Portman said. Portman is deputy director of the Resource Development Council in Anchorage. ConocoPhillips is a member of RDC.BLM’s new strategy also has political opponents like Senator Lisa Murkowski, who asked the agency to withdraw it altogether.But environmental groups say the protections are important. If anything, they want the BLM to go further.Nicole Whittington-Evans of The Wilderness Society said BLM should take into account how oil development could affect the climate.“Clearly, oil and gas development and the burning of fossil fuels will have an impact on climate and will create a carbon footprint, and we believe that these types of impacts need to be addressed by the BLM,” Whitington-Evans said.BLM hasn’t yet released a final version of the strategy. So as ConocoPhillips goes ahead with a new era of oil development in the National Petroleum Reserve, the federal government is still wrestling with how to manage the consequences.last_img read more

The latest edition covers 178 diagnostic imaging and interventional radiology topics with 890 clinical variants. Diagnostic imaging topics now cover 1,570 clinical scenarios. This update from the American College of Radiology (ACR) includes five new and seven revised topics. Each topic has a narrative, an evidence table and a literature search summary. “These evidence-based guidelines define practice principles to ensure high-quality outcomes and patient safety,” said Frank J. Rybicki, M.D., Ph.D., FACR, chair of the ACR Committee on Appropriateness Criteria. “Using them encourages the proper choice of radiologic procedures to reduce both practice variation and performance of unwarranted procedures,” he added.New topics are: Imaging of Deep Inferior Epigastric Arteries for Surgical Planning (Breast Reconstruction Surgery);Staging of Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma;Suspected Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm;Tinnitus; andRadiologic Management of Central Venous Access.Recently revised topics include:Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm—Interventional Planning and Follow-up;Breast Cancer Screening;Chronic Liver Disease;Chronic Wrist Pain;Imaging for Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement;Multiple Gestations; andOvarian Cancer Screening.ACR Appropriateness Criteria also address 61 radiation oncology topics — thus covering 235 unique topics. The guidelines are specified appropriate use criteria (AUC) under the Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA) legislation. They are developed by expert panels of radiologists and other doctors from relevant medical specialties. The ACR is designated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as a qualified Provider-Led Entity. Medical providers may consult the ACR Appropriateness Criteria to fulfill PAMA requirements that they consult AUC prior to ordering advanced diagnostic imaging for Medicare patients.Read the article “Clinical Decision Support Driving Small Reduction in Inappropriate Imaging Studies.”For more information: www.acr.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 06, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Improves Heart Attack Risk Assessment When used with a common heart scan, machine learning, a type of artificial intelligence (AI), does better than… read more Video Player is loading.GE Cardiographe cardiac CT scanner at SCCT19Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:38Loaded: 26.15%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:38 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

first_imgYesterday, Paymon Teyer, a principal member of Technical Staff at Salesforce, introduced Centrifuge as a library, which is also a framework for scheduling and running startup and warmup tasks. It focuses mainly on accelerating JVM restarts. It also provides an interface for implementing warmup tasks, like, calling an HTTP endpoint, populating caches and handling pre-compilation tasks for generated code. When the JVM restarts in a production environment, it affects the performance of the server. The JVM has to reload classes, trigger reflection inflation, rerun its JIT compiler on any code paths, reinitialize objects and dependency injections, and populate component caches. The performance impact of JVM restarts can be minimized by allowing individual components to execute arbitrary warmup logic themselves, after a cold start. To make this possible, Centrifuge was created with the goal of executing warmup tasks. It also manages resource usage and handles failures. Centrifuge allows users to register and configure warmup tasks either descriptively or programmatically. It also schedules tasks, manages and monitors threads, handles exceptions and retries, and provides status reports. Centrifuge supports the following two categories of warmup tasks: Blocking tasks Blocking tasks prevent the application from returning to the available server pool until they complete. These tasks must be executed for the application to function properly. For example, executing source code generators or populating a cache from storage to meet SLA requirements. Non-blocking tasks Non- blocking tasks execute asynchronously and don’t interfere with the application’s readiness. These tasks do the work which is needed after an application restarts but is not required immediately for the application to be in a consistent state. Examples include warmup logic that triggers JIT compilation on code paths or eagerly triggering dependency injection and object creation. How to Use Centrifuge? The first step is to include a Maven dependency for Centrifuge in the POM Then implementing the Warmer interface for each of the warmup tasks. The warmer class should have an accessible default constructor and it should not swallow InterruptedException. The warmers can be registered either programmatically with code or descriptively with a configuration file. For adding and removing warmers without recompiling, the warmers should be registered descriptively within a configuration file. Then the configuration file needs to be loaded into the Centrifuge. How is the HTTP Warmer useful? Centrifuge provides a simple HTTP warmer which is used to call HTTP endpoints to trigger code path. It is also exercised by the resource implementing the endpoint. If an application provides a homepage URL and when called, connects to a database, populates the caches, etc., then the HTTP warmer can warm these code paths.

first_imgAn exploration of the origins of jungle canopy ziplining leads to a tangled web of claims and a fascinating story in the heart of Costa Rica.The canopy zipline was invented in Sarapiquí in 1979 by a U.S. biologist named Donald Perry to study the rain forest canopy. Eighteen years later, a Canadian entrepreneur named Darren Hreniuk opened the first canopy tour to the public in Monteverde, and then patented the technology.Years of litigation followed as Hreniuk tried to protect his patent, while other operators argued that zipline technology was in the public domain. Regardless of legal wrangling, the canopy tour industry born in the Costa Rican rain forest soon spread like wildfire to the rest of the world.Read the full story in Travel here Facebook Comments Related posts:Ayahuasca, the sacred jungle vine that lures Westerners to the Amazon Avianca denies route cancellations out of Costa Rica, but confirms 60 local layoffs Government pledges to speed up construction of San Carlos highway US, Cuba agree to let airlines begin flightslast_img read more

[IMAGE]The committee approved Yellen’s nomination by a vote of 14-8, passing it to the Senate floor for a final vote.Currently serving as the Fed’s vice chair, Yellen is viewed by many on Wall Street as a “”dove”” on monetary policy [COLUMN_BREAK]who is more concerned with unemployment than inflation. In her nomination hearing before the committee on November 14, she defended steps the Fed took to stabilize the economy following the economic crash, putting an emphasis on the number of jobs regained. Like her predecessor, Ben Bernanke, she is expected to push for accommodative monetary policy as the economy slowly recovers.With Senate Democrats and several Republicans supporting her nomination, her confirmation seems likely.In remarks given at the approval hearing, Senate Banking Committee Chairman Tim Johnson (D-South Dakota) praised Yellen, calling her “”a model candidate for Chair of the Fed.””””As we saw in her testimony last week, Dr. Yellen understands the challenges facing our economy and the balance the Fed must strike as we navigate the path back to full employment,”” Johnson said. “”I am proud to offer my support for Dr. Yellen to serve as the first female Chair of the Federal Reserve.”” Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Ben S.

first_img in Daily Dose, Government, Headlines, News Access to mortgages in the housing market is a large part of the problem at hand in terms of reshaping the homeownership picture in the U.S.African-Americans and other people of color lag behind whites in almost all economic indicators including higher unemployment, lower incomes, lower retirement savings, higher numbers of un- and underbanked, lower credit scores, lower homeownership, higher poverty, and less wealth than whites.So what can be done to close the economic gaps between races and reform the housing finance system in America?Marc Morial, President and CEO of the National Urban League and former the Mayor of New Orleans may have an answer.Morial recently proposed the National Urban League’s Homebuyers’ Bill of Rights 2.0 in an essay published by the Urban Institute. The Homebuyers’ Bill of Rights 2.0 is a guide to help all Americans, especially African-Americans and people of color, live the American Dream and gain wealth through homeownership.”In the aftermath of the Great Recession, the tragic loss of wealth, and the bailout of the big banks, our national government must continue to play a central role in the housing market to right previous wrongs, ensure access to all qualified borrowers, and keep the housing finance system afloat for future generations,” Morial wrote.Marc MorialThe National Urban League’s Homebuyers’ Bill of Rights 2.0 includes the following recommendations:Housing finance reform must include an explicit government guarantee and retain and strengthen affordable housing goals to ensure communities of color have access to affordable mortgages.Housing finance reform must include reform to the credit scoring model and down payment requirements to ensure all qualified borrowers have access to affordable mortgages.Housing finance reform must ensure housing counseling is part of the application process to educate borrowers and limit loan defaults.Morial stated, “Today, we have an obligation to rebuild the American Dream through homeownership for an emerging generation of Americans, and our recommendations, as embodied in our Homebuyers’ Bill of Rights 2.0, present a path toward this crucial 21st-century objective.”In terms of economic disparities, African-Americans were affected more harshly by the Great Recession and financial crisis. According to Morial, homeownership is the primary means of building equity and passing on wealth from one generation to the next and this holds especially true for African-Americans. However, African-Americans only have 6 percent the wealth of whites, which Morial calls “unacceptable.”The African-American homeownership rate peaked in 2004 at 50 percent, but it now stands at only 42 percent and is expected to decrease to 40 percent by 2030, Morial reported. In addition, more than 25 percent of renters pay over half their income on rent-related costs, and Morial says it is safe to assume it is even worse for African-Americans.”Unfortunately, owning or renting a home has become more expensive since the financial crisis, making it more difficult for African-Americans and other people of color to access affordable housing in decent neighborhoods. Most people of color—a disproportionate share of African-Americans, in particular—will continue to be renters unless meaningful policies address demographic shifts,” Morial explained.He continued, “People of color will continue to suffer the brunt of the current rental crisis, low homeownership rates, and the ills that accompany them without effective policy changes resulting from successful housing finance reform. It is essential for any effort to rebuild the housing finance system to be cognizant of this reality. To do otherwise is a formula for failure.”The Five Star Institute has a wide footprint in furthering the diversity and inclusion agenda in the mortgage industry with the newly announced 2016 Five Star Diversity Symposium and its member organization, the American Mortgage Diversity Council (AMDC).The inaugural Five Star Diversity Symposium is a day-long event focused on advancing the conversation on diversity within the mortgage industry.

You can find more information and advice here. Edinburgh has once again cemented its position as Scotland’s airport of choice, with the BAA hub handling some 720,000 passengers in March and surging further ahead of competitor Glasgow International Airport.Nudging ahead of its rival at the end of 2007, the Scottish capital posted passenger figures one per cent higher than a year previous, while Glasgow’s passenger numbers slipped down 4.6 per cent on a year earlier.Travel to and from international destinations was the biggest grower at the hub, showing a 16 per cent rise on the same period last year, while new domestic routes such as the recently introduced Flybe Cardiff to Edinburgh service has also widened passenger potential.Flybe’s new route at the hub comes amid 27 new services brought to Edinburgh of late, with the airport proving its capability to expand numbers after processing as many as 9.11 million passengers over the last 12 months.Managing director David Johnston said: “The first of 27 new services to start this year from Edinburgh took off last month, giving passengers extra frequency and choice. BAA is investing a record £42 million in Edinburgh Airport this year in order to meet the demands of a growing route network and increasing passenger numbers.”A 16km tram route between Newhaven and Edinburgh Airport is currently under construction in the Scottish capital as passenger numbers increase and local authorities look to facilitate the rise as smoothly as possible.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Maplast_img read more
