Scientists from 15 countries study deep carbon sources in Costa Rica

first_imgThe interior of the Earth has large unexplored sources of carbon, and a group of 35 scientists are meeting at the University of Costa Rica (UCR) Thursday to share the latest advances and research on the subject.The experts, from 15 countries, were invited by the U.S. Deep Carbon Observatory (DCO) to attend a workshop organized by the UCR’s Central American School of Geology and the National Seismological Network (RSN).The group will tour the Turrialba and Poás volcanoes, where they will conduct measurements of gases that will help them better understand those emissions.“Currently the location of only 10 percent of the planet’s carbon is known, and the remaining 90 percent is in the interior of the Earth. Hence the importance of joint research,” RSN expert Carlos Ramírez Umaña said.Some substances obtained from carbon such as methane, benzene and alcohol, are widely used in industry and in everyday activities such as vehicle fuel, cooking and for providing energy to homes.The forum also will address issues related to underground life, volcanic emissions and even the beginning of life, “as the human being is made ​​of carbon compounds,” RSN geologist Gino González said.The group of scientists includes geologists, biologists, chemists, physicists and engineers from India, China, France, Italy, Japan, England, Portugal, South Africa, the United States, Taiwan and Costa Rica.

Essence Suites Taringa was officially opened

first_imgSource = Essence Suites Taringa Essence Suites Taringa was officially openedEssence Suites Taringa was officially opened by the Hon Kate Jones MPLeading the way for the medical tourism sector, Essence Suites Taringa’s 63 luxuriously appointed suites are situated directly above the Westside Private Hospital in Brisbane’s west.With the brand-new building now complete, the hotel forms part of the $65-million 10-storey development and is managed by Essence Apartments and Suites’ parent company UniLodge Australia.UniLodge CEO Tomas Johnsson said while the hotel’s convenient location is perfect for outpatients, who have discharged from the hospital below, Essence Suites Taringa is also ideal for short and long term business and leisure stays.“As a uniquely integrated hotel and hospital building, Essence Suites Taringa is a fantastic new addition to our growing portfolio of healthcare accommodation properties and cements our role in the tourism space,” said Mr Johnsson.“The offering is ideal because patients will come in early, settle into the hotel, have the operation or treatment they need and rather than go straight home, they can rest and recover in the hotel with their loved ones, which is ideal for those living in both regional as well as metro locations.”UniLodge is hoping to open more integrated developments in the future because recent research from the accommodation provider shows Australia’s hospitals are currently experiencing a shortage of beds with studies suggesting the need for approximately 3,000-10,000 more beds.“This new concept frees up hospital beds for other patients, and creates further demand for more integrated hotel and hospital developments.“UniLodge and Essence have a number of live projects we are exploring; we are looking at major capital cities and other high-demand areas, with a selective approach to working with health partners alike.”The Hon. Kate Jones today said: “This is what we think is a first in Australia. It shows that innovation is real and it’s happening right here in Brisbane. This really does provide a seamless welcoming experience for people that come to Brisbane with a world-class facility.“When you couple a world class hospital with all of the allied services that are also here as well as a wonderful stay, I am sure it will be absolutely booked out.“I am very confident that this brand new product will absolutely put Essence on the map. I am very proud as a Queenslander that this is happening in our backyard.“When you listen to what consumers want, that is when you drive growth. We know that around 2 million Australians every year travel for surgery so to be able to provide them with a real seamless and world-class experience is something that the market has been crying out for, for a real long time.”last_img read more
