Molenbeek Catholics Invite Muslims to Have Ftour in a Church

By Asmaa BahadiRabat – Ramadan, the most sacred month of the year for Muslims, affects not only their daily routine but also their environment and the people around them. Among many cross-cultural initiative, one in Brussels went viral on social media.On Friday, June 17, the Church of St. John-Baptist of Molenbeek in Brussel has welcomed Muslims to a giant ftour (Iftar) assembly for the second year in a row. About 600 people of various faiths, invited by the priest Aurélien Saniko, gathered in the religious house. Last year, about 300 people attended an Iftar organized in the town square.The event was originally scheduled to take place at the town square this year as well, but it was moved to the church because of bad weather.#Molenbeek les chrétiens accueillent les musulmans pour rupture du jeûne géante à l’intérieure de l’église #Ramadan pic.twitter.com/8SDSPh37no— Samuel Grzybowski (@samgrzybowski) June 17, 2016The tables were placed in the church for a meal for all attendees. The menu included typical traditional dishes such as Harira, which is widely consumed by Muslims in Ramadan. Moreover, mosques and other associations helped to provide certain foods such as soup or dates, and the guests also brought home-made dishes with them according to their own likings.Face à l’édification de leurs murs, nous construirons des ponts.

TSX falls into red following three days of gains

TORONTO — The Toronto stock market was lower Thursday following three days of advances as economic growth data from China met expectations and traders looked to a two-day summit of European Union leaders.The S&P/TSX composite index was down 16.35 points to 12,444.9 after netting more than 250 points since Friday and the TSX Venture Exchange added 1.85 points to 1,305.85.The Canadian dollar was off 0.25 of a cent to 102.00 cents US after the commodity-sensitive currency charged ahead almost a full U.S. cent on Wednesday amid rising copper prices.New York markets were weak as traders took in disappointing employment data and earnings from investment bank Morgan Stanley and mobile phone maker Nokia.The Dow Jones industrials dipped 16.58 points to 13,540.42 as applications for U.S. unemployment benefits jumped 46,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 388,000, the highest in four months. The increase represents a rebound from the previous week’s sharp drop. Both swings were largely due to technical factors.The four-week average of applications, a less volatile measure, fell slightly to 365,500, a level consistent with modest hiring.The Nasdaq composite index was 9.85 points lower to 3,094.27 while the S&P 500 index was off 3.48 points to 1,457.43.Commodity prices failed to find lift from data showing that China’s economy grew 7.4 per cent from the year before in the three months ended in September, which was in line with economists’ expectations. That was slower than the second quarter’s 7.6 per cent growth but economists also pointed to quarter-on-quarter growth of 2.2 per cent, the biggest such gain in a year.While indicating that the world’s second-biggest economy is recovering, analysts said the showing also indicated that there is no need for the government to inject further stimulus.The gold sector lost 0.85 per cent as December gold bullion pulled back $9.70 to US$1,743.30 an ounce. Barrick Gold Corp. (TSX:ABX) faded 39 cents to C$38.74.December copper was two cents lower at US$3.73 a pound following a five-cent run-up Wednesday and the base metals sector lost 0.64 per cent. First Quantum Minerals (TSX:FM) declined 29 cents to $22.46.The November crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange declined $1.21 to US$90.91 a barrel. Canadian Natural Resources (TSX:CNQ) shed 25 cents to $30.83.Meanwhile, an EU summit starting later Thursday will see leaders debate tightening financial integration and creating a banking union as well as dealing with the financial needs of Greece and Spain.Ahead of the meeting, German Chancellor Angela Merkel endorsed a proposal for a top European Union official to be given the power to veto member governments’ budgets in a bid to keep European countries from overspending in the future.But with long-term proposals for overhauling the EU likely to play a leading role at this week’s summit, firm decisions are not expected on more immediate matters.The eurozone financial crisis has focused on Spain in recent months. There are growing expectations the country, suffering from the after-effects of a building boom that went bust, will soon make a request for international help to deal with its finances.Amid that expectation, Spain on Thursday raised C4.6 billion at a sharply lower cost. The Treasury sold C1.51 billion in 10-year bonds at an average interest rate of 5.46 per cent, down from 5.66 per cent in the last such auction Sept. 20.Spain says it will soon decide whether to look to tap a European Central Bank bond-buying program largely designed to keep a lid on its borrowing costs.On the earnings front, Morgan Stanley shares were down 22 cents to US$18.27 after the bank reported higher net income and revenue for the third quarter. Excluding an accounting charge, the bank earned $535 million for common shareholders in July to September, up from $39 million a year ago. Revenue rose 18 per cent to $7.5 billion after excluding the charge, which beat the $6.4 billion that analysts had been expecting.Nokia Corp. said Thursday that its third-quarter net loss widened to C969 million as revenue plunged 19 per cent and sales of its flagship Windows Phone fell under three million units. Investors had been expecting an even bigger drop in sales but nonetheless sent shares in the company down 5.44 per cent to US$2.78.In other corporate developments, Telus Corp. will have a single class of shares after shareholders voted strongly in favour of the plan on Wednesday, defeating a U.S. hedge fund’s attempt to get a premium for holders of the company’s voting shares. Telus voting shares (TSX:T) gained 21 cents to $63.10 while its non-voting shares (TSX:T.A) gained 57 cents to $62.85.Britain’s financial regulator has fined a subsidiary of Sun Life Financial Inc. (TSX:SLF) 600,000 pounds for what it called “failings” in the governance of its with-profits business. The Financial Services Authority ruling concerns the operation of Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada (U.K.) Ltd. The FSA says the design and operation of the company’s governance arrangements were unclear and inadequate, resulting in a high risk that the interests of policyholders would not be properly protected. Sun Life shares dipped one cent to $24.16.European bourses were mixed as London’s FTSE 100 index slipped 0.15 per cent and Frankfurt’s DAX gained 0.23 per cent while the Paris CAC 40 was down 0.52 per cent.Earlier in Asia, Japan’s Nikkei 225 index rose two per cent and Hong Kong’s Hang Seng added 0.5 per cent.In mainland China, the Shanghai Composite Index gained 1.2 per cent to the highest close in more than a month.

Environmental watchdog says Ontario gives large scale water users a free ride

Environmental watchdog says Ontario gives large scale water users a free ride by Keith Leslie, The Canadian Press Posted Nov 3, 2015 8:43 am MDT Last Updated Nov 3, 2015 at 3:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – Ontario’s environment watchdog wants to end the “free ride” for farmers, municipalities and industries that are given large water-taking permits.Acting environmental commissioner Ellen Schwartzel said she was frustrated that the government has made no progress on recovering its management costs for water, despite years of reports, recommendations and political promises.“We’re really eager to see this move forward,” Schwartzel said as she released her annual report. “Other provinces are likely ahead of us on this, so we really need to move on it.”The province recovers only 1.2 per cent of the $16.2 million it spends each year on water quantity management programs.“Not only do most industries get a total free ride, the few that do pay are charged only $3.71 for every million litres of water they take,” said Schwartzel. “That works out to less than $10 for enough water to fill an Olympic-size pool.”Industries that face the small charge include bottled water producers, beverage manufacturers, fruit and vegetable canning or pickling facilities, ready-mix concrete producers, pesticide, fertilizer and other agriculture chemical manufacturers or inorganic chemical manufacturers.However, Schwartzel said there were “outdated blanked exemptions” for agricultural, municipal and short-term water takings that should be eliminated.The Ministry of the Environment needs to be more open when it issues water-taking permits because only one-quarter of them get posted on its website for public comment, added Schwartzel.“Permits for municipal or agricultural uses, or ones that last for less than a year, are never shared with the public, and many of these are for high-risk uses,” she said.Environment Minister Glen Murray said he was preparing a plan to recover more of the water management costs, but warned the issue is not black-and-white.Large industrial users of water are often heavy polluters, and will face additional costs when the government introduces a cap-and-trade system next spring.“You don’t want to go forward precipitously and hit a company with the polluter-pay principle on carbon dioxide and carbon pollution at the same time you’re dealing with fees for water,” said Murray.The environment minister suggested bottled water companies could face a jump in fees because the government will look at whether or not water taken is returned or permanently removed from the water table.“Some of our larger industrial users that produce things treat that water and they return it back to the aquifer,” said Murray. “If you’re taking water and putting it in plastic bottles and selling it back at almost the price of gasoline, that water is not coming back.”The Ontario Federation of Agriculture said farmers use the latest technology to make sure they do not waste water, and pointed out that most of the rainwater they do use on crops is filtered and purified by the soil and returned to rivers, lakes and aquifers.“In most of the cases, Ontario agriculture is irrigated by God, so I’m not too interested in paying that bill,” said OFA president Don McCabe.The Association of Municipalities of Ontario warned any new provincial charge to towns and cities for water would be passed on to local taxpayers.“Whatever happens gets put back on the property tax bill or back into the user fee charge for water,” said AMO executive director Pat Vanini. “Municipal governments aren’t in this for profit.”Green Party Leader Mike Schreiner said the government allows companies to “rip off our water,” and called on the province to protect municipal and agricultural water users as it establishes the new fees.“Let’s start with charging the sand and gravel industry, let’s start with charging the water bottling companies, let’s start with charging golf courses a fair rate,” said Schreiner.The environmental commissioner’s annual report also takes the Liberals to task for slashing the budget to buy environmentally sensitive lands from $5.1 million to just $1,000.“One thousand dollars will not go very far in purchasing land in southern Ontario…which has among the highest number of species at risk anywhere in Canada,” warned Schwartzel.Follow @CPnewsboy on Twitter read more

A petition to get My Lovely Horse into the Eurovision was thrown

first_img[Father Ted screengrab]Not for very long, mind.Briefly discussing it in public session with TDs and senators at the Oireachtas public petitions committee on Wednesday, chairman Pádraig Mac Lochlainn observed — tongue-in-cheek, do we need to add? — that perhaps the panel didn’t have the requisite “musical expertise” to deal with the issue.Labour senator Susan O’Keeffe chipped in to thank the petitioner for the ”entertainment value” of his entreaty, and McLochlainn (of Sinn Féin) replied that it was a “great song” before dismissing the issue. Source: Laura Hutton/Photocall IrelandPádraig Mac LochlainnThe whole exchange didn’t take longer than a few seconds, and it was one of a range of petitions considered by the committee this week — a point McLochlainn was keen to stress when we called him to talk about it.“Basically that’s a vexatious petition,” he says, before correcting himself…Frivilous, rather than vexatious. Vexatious would mean it contains an unfair allegation against somebody.So how much of the committee’s time is spent on ‘frivilous’ issues?There’s very little consideration that would go into a decision like that. Standing orders are pretty clear…All petitions submitted are examined by Oireachtas staff to ensure they comply with the standing orders, he says.The secretariat* would look at it and say ‘we believe this is not serious’. Source: Channel 4/YouTubeSo… that’s the petitions issue dealt with… If ‘My Lovely Horse’ had, by some freak of luck, managed to jump the ‘frivilous’ fence, no doubt it would also have failed to clear many of the other standing orders.But it’s a moot point anyway…Not willing to let the issue drop, TheJournal.ie put in a call to a Eurovision expert to get confirmation of some half-remembered facts.“Sure you haven’t a hope. Sure the song’s more than 18 years old or so to start with,” says Paul G Sheridan — Song Contest afficionado, former Eurosong selector and provider of fun facts for those Marty Whelan commentaries.The song has to be an original, and it cannot have been aired publicly before a given date set down each year by the European Broadcasting Union, Sheridan says.Even if that weren’t the case, novelty songs tend not to do well in the contest anyway, Sheridan says.“Remember the year we sent the Turkey?”*No pun intended (we imagine).Full metal racket: The Government’s in no mood for a scrap, and the McGraths are livid…Read: Two ministers, some sheep, and a city centre photo-op. What could go wrong? Gif: Portals of DiscoveryIf staff believe a petition is borderline, it’s brought to a working group of four committee members before being put to the whole panel “to speed up the process”.So what are those standing orders? The full list is available here — but it’s all pretty reasonable stuff: the petition can’t request the Dáil to act outside its power, it can’t relate to a matter before the courts, it can’t contain offensive language etc. etc.“You have to demonstrate that you have gone through a particular appeals process” before taking a petition, McLochlainn says.Once it’s considered by the committee, members have a range of options on how to proceed.“We would often correspond with the relevant Minister, bring in the Minister of the day to answer questions, the Secretary General of the relevant department…”Want more detail on the committee? Read McLochlainn’s op ed on the subject here > “There’s always going to be people — a tiny minority — who submit frivilous petitions or who are acting the maggot,” he says, adding that the broad majority are on serious topics.Once you don’t happen to be a TD or senator, any citizen can submit one for consideration, and there’s no set number of signatories required.center_img SO, A PETITION to have ‘My Lovely Horse’, Father Ted’s famed (fictional) Eurosong entry, was considered by TDs this week.last_img read more

Federal Budget 2016 Breaking down the politics

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram While they are the centre-piece of economic policy, annual budgets are primarily political statements by the governments that formulate them. This is particularly true of budgets that are formulated ahead of an election. In such circumstances, even the most ardent advocate of small government can see the need for promises of government programs and financial assistance to voters if political survival is on the line. The flip side of this, meanwhile, is that a government will always choose the first year of its election cycle to dispense harsh policy panaceas to perceived economic and social problems.When the Liberal-National coalition was elected to government under Tony Abbott’s leadership, the new administration’s first budget was a case study of this pattern in action. Buttressed by an economic audit undertaken by sympathetic economists, the Abbott government sought to reduce the federal government’s liability by proposing significant cuts on spending in government programs (especially in education and welfare) and by trying to impose more user-pays principles to higher education and health. Associated with these practical manifestations of its view that major budgetary ‘reform’ had to be undertaken in the aftermath of six years of Labor government, the Abbott government reached to the ideas of social conservatism to construct a narrative for its approach. Consequently, the then treasurer, Joe Hockey, tied his budget to conservative critiques of the way welfare had become so pervasive it had created an ‘entitlement’ mentality as far up as the upper reaches of the middle class. The new socially conservative government, he declared, would end the age of entitlement. One of the problems for both Hockey and Abbott was that the Australian Senate refused to agree to many of these contentious policies. The Abbott government’s first budget thus ended up being hamstrung in the upper house, all the while providing time and space for the Labor opposition to successfully brand it as ideological and unfair. The opinion polls showed that the Labor critique was resonating with voters who have shown in the past that they too are rarely enthused by government that appears to be both inequitable and ideological. So bad did things get for Mr Abbott and the ultra-conservatives who were running the government between 2013 and 2015, that that administration collapsed. Abbott was replaced by Malcolm Turnbull, Joe Hockey was replaced by Scott Morrison and a rump of ultra conservatives who were part of the Abbott government were moved on, to be replaced by much more moderate Liberals. The hectoring of the social conservatives over everything from welfare entitlement to same sex marriage was replaced by rhetoric about exciting, innovative and modern times ahead. As the Liberal leadership transition occurred, support for the Coalition as measured by the opinion polls surged, suggesting that the electorate was as relieved to see the back of Abbott as some of the Liberal party back-bench. Turnbull could have gone for an early election right there and then to capitalise on this altered dynamic, but he did not. Instead, the government began a series of debates about economic reform in which tax figured prominently. During this period Turnbull and Morrison gave the impression that the GST might increase, and that the federal government would get itself out of funding health and education by forcing state governments to impose income taxes. Opinion poll support for the government began to fall again. Sensing that the Turnbull government appeared to be struggling to define its policy objectives, the Bill Shorten-led Labor opposition sought to be pro-active and began flagging some initiatives of its own. It indicated that a Labor government would address tax policy to remove the practice of high income earners obtaining tax concessions by diverting some of their wealth into superannuation. It promised to address the negative gearing provisions in the tax act that provides tax concessions to those purchasing investment properties. It would find more money for education by raising tobacco taxes. It also said that it would return to the matter of climate change policy. As the months of the new Turnbull government dragged by, speculation arose that the prime minister would wait until November to call an election. This changed when a sudden burst of action to change the Australian electoral law to abolish the use of party tickets in Senate voting indicated that the next election was going to be held sooner rather than later. The expectation now was of a double dissolution election on 2 July. To accommodate this, the government had to alter the schedule for introducing its budget.These, then, were the political conditions in which Scott Morrison was to bring down his first budget as the new treasurer. The pressures on him were quite significant. Labor’s proactive campaign on superannuation and negative gearing had highlighted inequities in the tax system that, were they to be addressed, could result in significant increases in revenue. However, vested interests such as the superannuation industry and the property investment sector opposed these ideas and reminded the Liberal party that these interests were core constituents. Meanwhile, the close proximity of the election meant that some form of generosity had to be extended to swinging voters – or, at the very least, nothing should be done to raise their tax burden. Seeking to exert counter pressure here were economics experts and social progressive policy think tanks who all warned the government on the urgent need to find new ways to tax people lest the budget deficit continue to grow. And looming over this was the residue of the Abbott government’s 2014 budget, with its extensive cuts to expenditure and its darkly conservative view of the human condition.Whether by accident or design, the Morrison budget turned out to be a political master-stroke. Its over-arching achievement was to be seen as basically benign. Its other strength was its selective cherry-picking of some of Labor’s ideas. The superannuation changes were announced, and the way this appeared to impact on the very wealthy negated the claim from Labor that the tax cuts brought in by way of altering the income threshold at which the top tax rate kicks in was, in fact, a windfall for high-income earners. The government made it clear, however, that it would not touch negative gearing. In so doing, Morrison has outflanked Labor and is leading Mr Shorten into the trap of proposing a reform that may not be enthusiastically embraced by swinging voters at all. The trap for Labor is to be seen to be caught up in the politics of class envy. It is a trap Mr Shorten seems quite keen to fall into.Commentators also noted the lack of explicit commitments on education and health. These things had been dealt with under the auspices of COAG and has been somewhat off the agenda ever since. Meanwhile, economic analysis seemed to indicate that Labor had over-estimated the revenue from increasing the tobacco tax. In a spectacular sleight of hand, Morrison pinched Labor’s idea of increasing tobacco taxes while simultaneously upbraiding Labor’s profligacy with regards to its proposals for funding education. Here was a warning for Labor over how its attempt to be pro-active on policy will potentially cause it problems. Voters always see Labor as being poor on being able to manage the budget deficit, and this must be frustrating shadow treasurer Chris Bowen, who has spent every moment since the budget trying to draw attention to the lack of costings in the Morrison budget’s company tax cuts and the ballooning of the deficit that has occurred since the Coalition has come to power. Instead of discussing the failure of the Liberals to match fiscal reality to its rhetoric, the political commentariat has focused in on the alleged ‘funding black hole’ in Labor’s cigarettes-for-education proposal.There is another looming problem for Mr Shorten. His party’s decision to persist with climate change as an issue despite the huge political damage this matter has caused Labor since 2007 shows that Mr Shorten and many of his colleagues have not learned much from the drubbing they got in the 2013 election. Presumably Labor’s obsession with this issue reflects the concern it has about losing more inner city seats to the Greens. Mr Shorten’s commitment to pursuing greenhouse gas emission cuts but at the same time promising to not bring in a carbon tax sounds eerily like Julia Gillard’s campaign approach ahead of the 2013 election. Mr Morrison, meanwhile, said virtually nothing on climate change in his budget. The election will reveal which approach is closer to the sentiments of the swinging voters in the outer suburbs and in regional Australia.There was much gossip over the summer that relations between Mr Morrison and Prime Minister Turnbull had reached such a low point that events had to be staged to show that the two most important men in government were still actually talking to each other. The treasurer’s job was to formulate a budget that would not alienate swinging voters, would provide the government room to attack its Labor opponent, and maintain the much more optimistic narrative about the economic future being articulated by the new prime minister. The Morrison budget has done precisely these things. It is being perceived as benign mainly because the dreaded GST has not been raised. Its reform of superannuation tax concessions for the rich make it look fair, even though hardly anyone benefits from its so-called ‘tax cut’. It cherry picks Labor ideas but leaves the opposition looking like ideologues with its persistence over climate change and its class-division rhetoric over negative gearing. It has even managed to make its new version of work-for-the-dole policy sound a lot more pleasant and positive than the approach taken by Abbott and the ultra-conservatives.For all their alleged enmity, Scott Morrison has set his prime minister up with a budget that should allow the Coalition to win the next election. It’s now up to Turnbull to make something of the good groundwork the treasurer has done for his government.* Dr Nick Economou is a senior lecturer in the School of Social Sciences, Monash University.last_img read more

At least 19 men arrested in child sex sting in Whatcom County

first_imgAt least 19 men in Whatcom and Skagit counties were caught in a sting operation this month that targeted internet predators attempting to solicit sexual contact with minors, Washington State Patrol said.As of 5:30 p.m. Sunday, 19 men had been arrested in operation “Net Nanny,” which is put on by the Washington State Patrol’s Missing and Exploited Children Task Force. More arrests were expected to happen late Sunday night, the State Patrol said.This is the 10th sting the State Patrol has conducted. A similar operation in the Tri-Cities last summer resulted in 26 arrests.“The internet has become a hunting ground for sexual predators that are targeting our vulnerable children,” WSP Chief John R. Batiste said after a Net Nanny operation last month in Kitsap County. “This multiagency operation is taking dangerous individuals off the streets and making communities safer for families.”Most of the men were arrested on suspicion of attempted child rape and attempted communication with a minor for immoral purposes. Many of them had little to no criminal history.A Whatcom County Superior Court commissioner found probable cause Friday to charge the first seven men arrested; the rest are expected to appear in court Monday afternoon. Formal criminal charges for all the men must be filed by the middle of the week.last_img read more

Oil at 2016 high above 40 per barrel after producer price support

first_imgGlobal oil markets jumped more than 5 percent on Monday, with Brent hitting a 2016 peak above $40 a barrel, after Ecuador said it was holding a meeting of Latin American crude producers as OPEC sought a higher anchor price for oil.Technically-driven buying in crude and a commodities rally also boosted oil. Industry data showing a smaller-than-expected build in stockpiles at the Cushing, Oklahoma delivery hub for U.S. crude futures was another supportive factor.Oil has rallied more than 50 percent since hitting 12-year lows less than two months ago. The rally began after Russia and the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries floated the idea of a production freeze to support prices in an oversupplied market.Ecuador’s Foreign Minister Guillaume Long said his government will host a meeting in Quito on Friday with Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador and Mexico “to reach consensus over oil, especially prices.”Separately, major OPEC producers are talking about a new oil price equilibrium of around $50, New York-based consultancy PIRA told Reuters.”It’s more confirmation that oil producers are close to achieving some kind of a deal on price support,” said Phil Flynn, analyst at Price Futures Group in Chicago. “It’s feeding bullish sentiment into a market that’s turned 180 degrees from where it stood just weeks ago.”Brent LCOc1, the global crude benchmark, settled up $2.12 at $40.84. Its session peak was $41.04, the highest since Dec. 9. That was 51 percent above the 12-year low of $27.10 on Jan 20.U.S. crude CLc1 finished up $1.98 at $37.90 a barrel, near a 2-month high. On Feb. 11, it hit a 2003 low of $26.05.Some of the recent gains in oil were also helped by chart-related buying as Brent and U.S. crude breached multiple resistance levels between $30 and $38.Asset rotation by investors have also led to higher allocations into commodities, along with equities. Gold and iron ore prices hit multi-month highs on Monday while Asian equities rose to two-month highs.Hedge funds raised their bullish bets on Brent to a record high and on U.S. crude to a November peak during the week to March 1.On the production front, U.S. shale oil output was expected to fall for a sixth month in a row in April, a government forecast said.Some analysts said the global crude market remained oversupplied by around 2 million barrels per day and higher prices could prompt U.S. shale producers to swiftly add rigs they had cut.Morgan Stanley noted the rally was also driven by dollar depreciation. “The upside should be limited by bloated global inventories and producer hedging,” it said.last_img read more

It was filled with dark humor and surprisingly disturbing imagery for a children’s cartoon. As someone who had already mostly aged out of Nickelodeon’s target audience, it felt like the last show of theirs that was made for me. What other Nickelodeon show would have an episode where the main character harvests his classmates’ organs and turns himself into a giant blob of meat? Invader Zim turned out to be a gateway to Vasquez’s comics and Slave Labor Graphics. Nothing spoke to an angsty teenager in the early 2000s quite like Johnny the Homicidal Maniac and Squee.Even though the TV movie is probably a long ways off, you don’t need to wait for more Zim. A very funny, consistently well-written Invader Zim comics series has been coming out for the last two years.

Coffeebased colloids for direct solar absorption

first_img Modeling of thermal performances. (a) Decomposition and analysis of the power components (1D model) for the different configurations (direct and selective surface absorption) at 0.276 ml/s (top histogram) and 0.414 ml/s (bottom histogram) flow rates. Higher fluid speed reduce the thermal losses towards the environment due to lower operating temperatures. The irradiance absorption is not influenced by different mass flow rates hence the design favors the fluid able to capture as high irradiance as possible, namely the G30w50 fluid. (b) Fluid temperature profiles at the outlet section (inlet temperature is constant) obtained with the 2D model. The colloids have lower surface temperature than that of the surface receiver, and top thermal losses are lower. Lower fluid concentrations lead to reduced surface temperature and less sharp profiles. Credit: Scientific Reports, doi: 10.1038/s41598-019-39032-5. Solar energy is one of the most promising resources to help reduce fossil fuel consumption and mitigate greenhouse gas emissions to power a sustainable future. Devices presently in use to convert solar energy into thermal energy mostly rely on the indirect absorption of sunlight, where the efficiency is generally limited as a result of major convective heat losses into the surrounding environment. A promising alternative is the direct absorption of sunlight, where a fluid can serve as both solar energy absorber and heat carrier. The advantage of the technique is based on reduced convective and radiative heat losses, since temperature peak shifts from the absorbent surface (indirect absorption) to the bulk region of the carrier fluid (direct absorption). In a recent study, Matteo Alberghini and co-workers at the Departments of Energy, Applied Science and Technology, and the National Institute of Optics in Italy, investigated a sustainable, stable and inexpensive colloid based on coffee solutions to implement direct solar absorption. Results of their work are now published on Scientific Reports.

The scientists conducted characterization studies of the optical properties of the proposed colloids relative to the extinction coefficient and calculated the stored energy fraction of the fluids. They derived the extinction coefficient in the study as the sum of absorption and scattering coefficients for a given wavelength. The scientists recorded an extremely intense optical coefficient for the G30 fluid, which they credited to the coffee content. The height of recorded peaks decreased with increased water dilution. Thereafter, Alberghini et al. calculated the stored energy fraction of the solutions based on the incident solar radiance and the penetration distance into the fluid, known as the path length. The G30 fluid had the highest stored energy, which gradually decreased with the increased dilution of water. Synthesis of coffee-based colloids.

Credit: Scientific Reports, doi: 10.1038/s41598-019-39032-5 In addition, Alberghini et al. developed and validated numerical models against the experimental data. For this, they used two models; 1) a one-dimensional model based on an electrical analogy and 2) a two-dimensional computation fluid dynamics (CFD) model. They reported that optical losses did not depend on the flow rate, but on the optical properties of the flowing fluids and the material composition of the collectors. The scientists maintained the efficiency of the collector by striking a balance between heat absorption and reflection for optimal thermal performance. , Nature Energy In the present work, Alberghini et al. first conducted optical characterization of the proposed coffee-based colloids. Since coffee is a complex substance, the scientists used Arabica coffee prepared in an aluminum coffee maker known as ‘moka’ for stovetops, for consistency. They followed a protocol to prepare ‘student’s coffee’ allowing increased caffeine particle suspension in water and conducted scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to assess particle size distribution in the resulting solution. Then they introduced glycerol to the preparation to lower its freezing temperature for use outdoors in cold or freezing climates. Finally, the scientists added copper sulphate (CuSO4) to reduce risks of alga or mold formation in the liquid. They considered five variants of the proposed colloid for the experiments that were stable during the entire time-frame spanning six months. The five variants were the primary colloid solution containing glycerol (30 % w/v) and CuSO4 (2 ppm), which the scientists named as G30, followed by 1 percent, 10 percent, 20 percent and 50 percent volume fractions of G30 in distilled water named as; G30w1, G30w10, G30w20 and G30w50 in the study. Novel form of graphene-based optical material developed The scientists then experimentally investigated the photothermal performance of the coffee-based colloids compared to a selective absorber with specifically designed solar collectors. They used similar geometries in the experiments to study both direct and indirect absorption of sunlight. The scientists first designed the solar thermal collectors using computer aided design (CAD) software prior to their manufacture. During direct absorption, colloids flowing in the channel directly absorbed sunlight. For indirect absorption, Alberghini et al. mounted a selective surface absorber on the collector for water to flow through the underlying channels. Using a peristaltic pump, they provided constant fluid flow through the channels and controlled the inlet temperature of the fluid using a thermostatic bath. To compare the efficiency between the two collectors, they calculated thermal losses and optical efficiency through energy conservation in the system. They also tested the colloids at three different flow rates and reported the corresponding mean optical efficiency of the fluids to the flow rates. This document is subject to copyright.

In the work proposed by Alberghini et al. the colloid consisted of distilled water, Arabica coffee, glycerol and copper sulphate to optimize the properties and biocompatibility of the fluid. The scientists analyzed the photothermal performance of the proposed fluid for direct solar absorption and compared its performance with traditional flat-plate collectors. They showed that the collectors could be precisely tailored and realized with 3-D printing for the experimental tests.Existing carbon-based nanocolloids have presented drawbacks, despite promising thermo-physical properties suited for direct solar absorption, as a result of cytotoxicity and harmful impacts on the environment. In pioneering experimental work, researchers have therefore used a black fluid containing India ink in water (3.0 g/l) for direct solar thermal energy absorbance. They observed an encouraging performance, which lead to the use of nanocolloids also known as nanofluids to allow direct solar absorption. The fluids are typically characterized by a suspended phase that is able to confer enhanced photo-thermal properties to the base of the fluid. If opportunely designed, these nanocolloids will have promising potential for solar-to-thermal conversion. Photo-thermal performance. (a) Results obtained for the optical efficiency of the proposed coffee-based colloids at different dilutions (10%, 20% and 50% G30 volume fraction in water) and of the selective surface absorber. The average value obtained at steady state (5 minutes sampling frequency) for three different flow rates (0.138, 0.276 and 0.414 ml/s) is reported. The error bars have been obtained via uncertainty quantification on the experimental data and on the model parameters.

Journal information: Scientific Reports © 2019 Science X Network In this way, Alberghini et al. showed that the proposed coffee-based colloids showed competitive optical and thermal properties for direct solar absorption. The experimental results agreed with the numerical models, validating these fluids to perform similarly to the traditional indirect absorption technique. The scientists found that during operation, the optimal dilution guaranteed the best energy storage capacity. The results will pave the way towards developing an unconventional family of biocompatible, environmentally sustainable and inexpensive colloids for solar applications. The scientists propose using the technique in additional solar-based applications such as:Solar-driven evaporationSeawater desalinationDomestic water heating, and Sustainable solar cooling.
