OPAC The Computerized Catalogue has replaced the old Card Drawer System in libraries that have been computerized. It lets you browse items by author, title, subject, class or ISBN number and a Keyword search is included as well. Another major advantage of this service is that one can browse items not only pertaining to the library from where he/she is making the search but is automatically browsing all the material that is present in all the Public Libraries (and the National Library) both in Malta and Gozo. CANOPEA - Solar Decathlon Europe - Madrid 2012 Comment une ville peut-elle combiner la vie sur un territoire géographiquement limité et le confort individuel tout en étant proche de la nature ? La Team Rhône-Alpes développe CANOPEA®: un projet d’habitat écologique innovant, en lice pour la compétition internationale Solar Decathlon Europe 2012. Le projet de la Team Rhône-Alpes propose un collectif de petits immeubles, appelés « Home-towers », qui s’inscrit dans un quartier. Cet écosystème, inspiré de la canopée – étage supérieur de la forêt captant 95% de l’énergie solaire et 30% des précipitations – présente quatre caractéristiques qui font écho aux enjeux du milieu rhônalpin et plus largement aux métropoles : Un confort individuel recréé dans un collectif : chaque immeuble, composé au maximum de 10 étages pour une densité maîtrisée, est présenté comme une imbrication d’espaces individuels, où un étage correspond à un appartement.

Carbon calculator: how taking one flight emits as much as many people do in a year Taking a long-haul flight generates more carbon emissions than the average person in dozens of countries around the world produces in a whole year, a new Guardian analysis has found. The figures highlight the disproportionate carbon footprint of those who can afford to fly, with even a short-haul return flight from London to Edinburgh contributing more CO2 than the mean annual emissions of a person in Uganda or Somalia. 2019 is forecast to be another record-breaking year for air travel, with passengers expected to fly a total of 8.1tn km, up 5% from last year and more than 300% since 1990. Taking one return flight generates more CO2 than citizens of some countries produce in a year

Global insurers share successful climate change strategies to drive greater action and ambition - Asset Owners Disclosure Project Fourteen global insurers worth over USD 3.5 trillion discuss how they manage the risks and opportunities of climate change in a new leading practice guide launched today by climate finance experts. The interviewees provide peers with practical ways to navigate an increasingly complex environment marked by escalating climate risks and regulatory pressure for better disclosure across underwriting and investment portfolios. The report by ShareAction/AODP, called ‘Insuring a low-carbon future: A practical guide for insurers on managing climate-related risks and opportunities’, explores current leading practice, identifies common barriers, and presents a framework of industry-tested building blocks relevant for other insurers of all types. It also offers wider recommendations for policymakers, customers, insurers and their investors to help drive the industry towards aligning with a successful low-carbon and climate-resilient transition.
