City of Dawson Creek and NEAT asking residents to improve recycling

first_imgDAWSON CREEK, B.C. – The City together with the Northern Environmental Action Team want to help improve residents understanding of proper recycling cart contents with curbside cart audits starting the week of November 12.Since the curbside program started in September, residents have been doing a great job,  yet there has been an increase in contaminated materials left in the carts. Repeated contamination has shown a need for the new Recycle it Right program, to help residents understand and know proper sorting practices.It is essential to understand that blue bin contents are delivered to DC Recycling, these items are sorted and then baled for resale. Contaminants in your cart such as food waste, cat litter, garbage and construction materials can turn your recycling to garbage. This reduces the resale value of recyclable materials which increases processing costs and poses unsafe working conditions to staff. NEAT representatives will audit curbside bins by looking for possible contaminants, and then leaving information on correct sorting and acceptable recyclable materials. If a cart is highly contaminated, NEAT will leave the bin and ask the resident to re-sort their waste.For more information on how to Recycle it Right;Printable guide (also available as a downloadable PDF online) http://www.dawsoncreek.ca/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/curbside-garbage-and-recycling/CODC-curbside-guide-web-PDF.pdfCheck out the Waste Wizard at dawsoncreek.ca/recycle http://dawsoncreek.ca/recycleDownload the Dawson Creek City appFor more information on the program, contact the City of Dawson Creek at 250-784-3600 or info@dawsoncreek.calast_img read more

Amending Indian Forest Act

first_imgThe Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEF&CC) has finalised the first draft of the comprehensive amendments to the Indian Forest Act, 1927 (IFA). The 123-page draft provides definitions to important terms that were missing from the law. The draft has been prepared based on the inputs of a core committee constituted by the ministry. On March 7, Inspector General of Forests (Forest Policy) Noyal Thomas sent a letter to all states seeking their comments. Each state has to conduct consultations with all its stakeholders, including non-profits and civil society organisations, and send the compiled feedback to the ministry by June 7. Also Read – A special kind of bondThe amendment defines community as “a group of persons specified on the basis of government records living in a specific locality and in joint possession and enjoyment of common property resources, without regard to race, religion, caste, language and culture”. Forest is defined to include “any government or private or institutional land recorded or notified as forest/forest land in any government record and the lands managed by government/community as forest and mangroves, and also any land which the central or state government may by notification declare to be forest for the purpose of this Act.” Also Read – Insider threat managementWhile the preamble of IFA, 1927, said the Act was focused on laws related to transport of forest produce and the tax on it, the amendment has increased the focus to “conservation, enrichment and sustainable management of forest resources and matters connected therewith to safeguard ecological stability to ensure provision of ecosystem services in perpetuity and to address the concerns related to climate change and international commitments”. The amendments specifically deal with the Forest Rights Act, 2006 (FRA). The amendments say if the state government, after consultation with the central government, feels that the rights under FRA will hamper conservation efforts, then the state “may commute such rights by paying such persons a sum of money in lieu thereof, or grant of land, or in such other manner as it thinks fit, to maintain the social organisation of the forest-dwelling communities or alternatively set out some other forest tract of sufficient extent, and in a locality reasonably convenient, for the purpose of such forest dwellers”. The amendment also introduces a new category of forests — production forest. These will be forests with specific objectives for production of timber, pulp, pulpwood, firewood, non-timber forest produce, medicinal plants or any forest species to increase production in the country for a specified period.(The views are strictly personal)last_img read more

CEOs see need to bolster aboriginal say in natural resource development

OTTAWA – Canada’s aboriginal communities have found a powerful ally in their bid to be treated as equal partners in the discussion about tapping the country’s natural-resource wealth.Big business wants them at the negotiating table, and is urging the federal and provincial governments to lend a helping hand.A new report due Monday from the Canadian Council of Chief Executives, prepared for Canada’s premiers in advance of their meeting later this month, urges governments to make aboriginal communities full partners in developing energy and mining projects.Governments should help train a growing aboriginal workforce and develop new ways to support aboriginal communities so that they can participate vigorously in business initiatives and negotiations to share the wealth, says the report, a copy of which was obtained by The Canadian Press.And the stakes are high: the viability of billions of dollars in natural resource investment, said John Manley, the council’s chief executive.“You have to find a negotiation arrangement where everybody benefits. The problem from the business side is more one of predictability of process,” Manley said in an interview.For corporations, which look at potential projects from a cost-benefit perspective, the downside of not having all interested parties on board and pulling in the same direction quickly becomes insurmountable, he said.“Can you look at this, and construct a road map to completion within a reasonable period of time?’” Manley said.“Because if you can’t get there in a reasonable period of time, or if you can’t figure out how you are going to manage all of the different and contradictory interests, the odds are, your capital will be better deployed elsewhere.”The federal government recently passed into law fundamental changes to environmental assessment and the Fisheries Act, in an attempt to speed up the approvals process for natural resource development.At the same time, Ottawa put an extra $13.6 million into supporting aboriginal participation in environmental assessments — an acknowledgment that First Nations demands must be dealt with in order for many projects to proceed.But First Nations are appalled at the changes to environmental assessment and fisheries, saying they will erode federal oversight of the land and weaken aboriginal say in how natural resources are developed.Plus, many First Nations oppose the Northern Gateway pipeline and are speaking up to demand larger roles in mining and hydro developments in other parts of the country too.Sharing resource revenues is likely to be a key theme at the Assembly of First Nations annual meetings this week in Toronto, with chiefs comparing notes on how aboriginal communities can speak with a more powerful voice.The development of the Victor diamond mine in northern Ontario is instructive.Diamond giant De Beers negotiated for years with the Attawapiskat First Nation to determine benefits for the local population stemming from the company’s nearby project.The company and both levels of government contributed to training funds, and the company covered the cost of shoring up Attawapiskat’s negotiating team. They signed an impact benefits agreement that has meant $325 million flowing to community members over the past six years.Now, about 20 per cent of the Victor mine workforce — about 100 people — is from Attawapiskat. Contracts and business connections with the First Nation meant another $53 million flowed into that community of 1800 people in 2011 alone.“I’ve seen a lot of personal success stories,” said De Beers Canada spokesman Tom Ormsby.The outcomes would be even better, however, if governments had engaged with Attawapiskat and the corporation earlier in the process, so that the aboriginal workforce was fully trained and ready to go the minute the mine went into production, Ormsby added.The recent housing crisis in the community, as well as its ongoing struggles with abject poverty, show that the benefits of the mine, however ample, are not distributed well, added Charlie Angus, the NDP MP whose riding includes Attawapiskat.Like the corporations and First Nations, Angus sees the need for new thinking by federal and provincial governments to allow for a more organized way of bringing aboriginal people into the natural resource development equation.“Every single time we’re developing this process, it’s from scratch,” he said.He wants to see a government-designed process that has as its goal “transformative investment” that works as well for First Nations as it does for corporations.Manley agreed that while corporations have a business incentive to negotiate with First Nations, government support is necessary to set up a framework that ensures all of society benefits.“If we leave the responsibility entirely with the corporate sector, it’s probably not going to be accomplished,” he said. “At the end of the day, the governments have to be involved.”For the chief executives, a solid plan to make First Nations “true partners” in resource development is a key part of a national energy strategy that they want the premiers to shift into full gear at their meeting in Halifax.For years, they have urged Ottawa and the provinces to set a price on carbon, diversify markets, streamline approvals, and generally make sure provincial and national climate policies are consistent.The executives have placed their hopes in the premiers, rather than Ottawa, because at the federal level, “there’s not an appetite for it,” Manley said.Now, with Alberta Premier Alison Redford onside, the idea has gained considerable traction, said Manley.“Quite frankly, if they (in Alberta) want to lead it and champion it, we’re happy to cheer them on from the sidelines.” CEOs see need to bolster aboriginal say in natural resource development AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Heather Scoffield, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 15, 2012 6:33 pm MDT read more

CES 2011 Sony mise sur la télévision en 3D

first_imgCES 2011 : Sony mise sur la télévision en 3DLe constructeur mise sur la télévision en 3D pour booster ses ventes. Une chaîne entièrement en trois dimensions serait à l’étude.Alors que le cinéma en 3D fait un véritable carton auprès du public, les autres supports qui offrent cette possibilité, télévisions, appareils photo ou caméras, peinent à séduire. Le géant Sony mise pourtant sur cette technologie, grâce notamment à la suppression des lunettes qui sont un vrai frein à l’expansion de la 3D dans les foyers. Pour cela, le constructeur a présenté, lors du CES de Las Vegas, toute une gamme d’appareils qui ne nécessitent pas de lunettes ainsi qu’une gamme de produits adaptés (films, jeux vidéos). Une chaîne de télévision en 3D serait même à l’étude. Cette offre s’accompagne d’un resserrement des liens avec les géants de l’Internet, Goggle dans le cadre de la Google TV lancée en octobre dernier, et Yahoo. “La prochaine grande transformation nous guette, le mariage du téléviseur et d’Internet”, prédit Howard Stringer, le président de Sony relayé par L’Expansion, à propos de ces rapprochements. Un nouveau service de films en streaming, nommé Qriosity (prononcez Curiosity en anglais), va être lancé pour les téléviseurs Bravia. Quand on voit les prévisions de vente de téléviseurs connectés à Internet qui se montent à 65 millions cette année, on comprend le pari pris par Sony…   Le 6 janvier 2011 à 18:09 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Happy Birthday Mystique

first_imgWhen you think of your top tier X-Men ladies, a couple of brilliant X-Ladies come to mind. Emma Frost, Rogue, Jean Grey, Kitty Pryde, Psylocke, but there’s one lady that’s always on everyone radar and we can’t talk about important ladies of the X-Men franchise without her. Today, we’re celebrating Mystique, the X-lady that everyone would want on their team, for the good or the bad. You know, depending on where your mutant allegiances lie.Created by Jim Mooney and Ron Garney, Raven Darkhölme made her comic debut in 1978 as Raven in Ms. Marvel #6. Later, she would make her first full appearance as Mystique in Ms. Marvel #18. There isn’t a lot to know about Raven, mostly because she doesn’t have much of a comic past. Don’t get me wrong. Writers have given Mystique somewhat of a past. However, most are scattered and far between for this mutant. We don’t have a history to nail down entirely for her, but that’s actually pretty okay!Mystique slays as a prominent role in the X-Men database with readers because she’s genuinely a mystery unto herself. With her many mutant abilities including shapeshifting, agility and reflexes, agelessness, accelerated healing and more, she’s never showed signs of slowing down. This is also what makes her the ultimate type of spy. You never know where her loyalties lie. As she morphs and molds herself into other people and learns more and more skills, you’re not even sure who she is. Her personality is somewhat of a mystery as well. Readers always find out something new about Mystique. Whether it be through her supervillain-ey antics or something else, writers always set the base for her. It makes Mystique an even more intriguing mutant when you read her arcs and stories.In the comics, she’s been established as bisexual, the mother of Nightwing, the adopted mother of Rogue, married to Xavier, had a child with Sabertooth and much more. Mystique has lived more than any of us would even dream. Mystique also carries a high intelligence and unique skill set. This has given her the chance to play a big part and associate with (or become the leader of) a ton of alliances including, the Brotherhood of Mutants, Freedom Force, The Hand, X-Factor, X-Corps and, of course, X-Men.There have been a lot of comics that give Mystique a critical role in the X-verse, but one where she lays all her own is in the Mystique collections by Brian K. Vaughan and Sean McKeever (2003-2005). It’s worth a pick up to see if Mystique can genuinely change her ways. Another comic and one of my personal all-time favorites is X-Men: Bizarre Love Triangle. In this comic, Mystique attempts to infiltrate the X-Men while also trying to seduce Gambit away from Rogue. Listen, Mystique may be awesome, but she’s also coming for the crown of Miss Messyboots. Don’t agree with it, but you have to respect her hustle it. Other fantastic comics are: X-Men: Days of Future Past, Astonishing X-Men Vol. 1 Life of X (2017) and X-Men: LegionQuest.Recently, Mystique has weaved her web in and out of the comics and one of the most recognized X-Men in years. She’s carried a significant and crucial role in X-Men activities, but she’s also been an essential part of X-Men history on screen. Rebecca Romijn played this blue beauty in X-Men (2000), X-2 (2003) and X-Men: The Last Stand. Jennifer Lawrence has recently taken up the mantle of Mystique for X-Men: First Class (2011), Days of Future Past (2014) and Apocalypse (2016). She will soon reprise her role for the upcoming Dark Phoenix slated for 2019. She’s also been voiced by talented such as Randell Carpenter and Jennifer Dale for the X-Men animated series, Colleen Wheeler in X-Men: Evolution and the utterly fantastic Lena Headey in The Super Hero Squad Show.Mystique has shifted her way inside our hearts since 1978 and hasn’t stopped ever since. She’s one of the X-Ladies we love for her wicked ways, but love even more for who she is. Here’s to Mystique, the bluest babe alive and one of the most excellent X-ladies to ever grace our panels.View as: One Page Slides1. Aaron Frey ComicsSee It Here2. Branded BaronSee It Here3.

Pochettino reveals Spurs duo will be assessed

first_imgTottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that the club duo Davinson Sanchez and Kieran Trippier need to be assessed further after sustaining injuries.Davinson didn’t make the team for Saturday’s trip to Crystal Palace due to a hamstring problem while Trippier was troubled by a groin injury that forced him out of the action after 24 minutes at Selhurst Park.Ivorian defender, Serge Aurier stepped in off the bench and helped the North London club to a clean sheet as another defender, Juan Foyth, headed home the game’s only goal on 66 minutes in only his second start in the Premier League, to give Tottenham all three points.Speaking after the win, Mauricio gave an update on Kieran to the club’s official website, saying:Victor Wanyama, Tottenham Hotspur, Premier LeaguePochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“I don’t believe it will be a big issue,” he said. “It’s a groin, he felt his groin, and he felt a little tired. We’ll see if he’s involved on international duty or not, but we have two weeks.“Davinson…in the Champions League game (against PSV) he felt a little in his hamstring. We need to assess him too. We need to wait and we hope it’s not a big issue either.”Tottenham Hotspur next host Chelsea at Wembley Stadium in the Premier League after the international break, before an all-important UEFA Champions League tie against Inter Milan four days later.last_img read more

DoT Dismisses CAGs Allegations that it Helped RIL during 2010 Auctions

first_imgThe Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has said that it believes that the decision to allow Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd to convert its internet service provider (ISP) permit into a unified licence was right, and was not made to help RIL during the 2010 auction.An unknown company -Infotel Broadband Services Pvt Ltd (IBSPL) – won pan-India broadband spectrum in 2010 by paying 5,000 times its net worth of ₹2.5 crore, after which it immediately sold the rights to Reliance Industries (RIL) unit resulting in an undue gain of ₹22,848 crore. Reliance is said to have conspired with IBSPL during the auction, for which a thorough probe is likely to be undertaken.The Comptroller & Auditor General (CAG) report said that DoT failed to see “telltale signs of rigging” in the 2010 auctions, according to Economic Times.The CAG has now suggested canceling nationwide broadband spectrum given to IBSPL, which is now a Reliance Industries company.However, Reliance appears to believe that the deal complied with all the rules and regulations and was carried out without any conspiracy.”The prescribed entry fee for migration to Unified License was ₹15 crore. Therefore Reliance Jio should have been allowed to migrate to UL by payment of this entry fee of ₹15 crore and allowed to provide voice services. But Reliance Jio was made to pay additional fee of ₹1,658 crore for the migration,” a Reliance Industries spokesperson told Business Line.”The auction guidelines were applicable uniformly to all the participants. RIL invested in IBSPL by subscribing to the fresh equity shares at par. The entire investment of RIL was into the company and there was no transfer of shares by any existing shareholders of IBSPL,” the company added.While RIL has rejected the conspiracy allegations calling it “bizarre,” Mahesh Uppal, Director of Com First India Pvt. Ltd, a consultancy, said that the report made by CAG will only create confusion for the sector and will delay allocation of other spectrum to the operators.”In the case of the recent auctions, the CAG is wrong. The telecos aren’t saints, but because the sector is so divided with divergent agendas, to suggest that there was collusion does not make sense,” Mint quoted Uppal.last_img read more

India vs South Africa World Cup 2019 Chahal strikes twice after du

first_imgSouth Africa found themselves in a precarios situation after Indian spinner Yuzvendra Chahal picked up two wickets to remove the two set batsmen Faf du Plessis and Rassie van der Dussen and Kuldeep Yadav got the scalp of JP Duminy to reduce South Africa to 89/5. The Proteas decided to bat first and received two early blows from Jasprit Bumrah who removed both the South African openers, Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock. Du Plessis and van der Dussen started to rebuild their team’s innings and seemed without much trouble against Indian bowlers once Bumrah was taken out of the attack. Bhuvneshwar Kumar didn’t trouble the batsmen much and Hardik Pandya, used as the third seamer, got the occassional delivery to bounce uncomfortably but otherwise proved innocuous. The two leg-spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav were brought into the attack by Virat Kohli. After initally not picking Chahal’s googlies, the two batsmen settled down to bat comfortably and started to get the scoreboard ticking. But then an attempted reverse sweep from van der Dussen proved fatal to him as he went far too wide of the off-stump, allowing Chahal to push the delivery towards the leg side. It missed the bat and spun back to hit the middle and leg stump. Soon, du Plessis’s vigil also ended with a straight going delivery that somehow sneaked through between bat and pad to rattle his stumps. JP Duminy came out and seemed to want to bat in a positive manner. But he too succumed to a non-spinning delivery that hit him on the pad while he was on the back foot. With half their wickets gone for 90 runs, South Africa are staring down the barrel.last_img read more

ARM chip makers set to reach 3GHz next year

first_img Intel’s Haswell to extend battery life, set for Taipei launch ARM chips are a type of RISC processor licensed by ARM Inc. They are considered medium to high speed, as compared with other chips, such as those that are used in personal computers. They are used in everything from phones (both Android at iPhone), to tablets, television sets and a myriad of other products. The fastest of the current crop is 2.3GHz—though most are closer to the 1.6GHz processor used in the Galaxy S4. As occurred with personal computers, chip makers are eager to make hand-held devices run faster with each new generation allowing users to run ever more sophisticated apps.To get the new chips to run faster, both chipmakers will be utilizing a 20nm process to create the new chips—28 is the current smallest standard. That both claim, should allow the chips to be more efficient, which should mean less power hungry, resulting in less battery drain for users.The arrival of faster ARM chips might also help to stave off the recent incursion into the field by PC chip maker Intel with its Bay Trail chips (recent testing showed them to be approximately 30 percent faster than the fastest Arm chip), a company that very much wants to make a move into ARM chips territory as sales of personal computers have declined—all while sales of phones and tablets have soared. AMD, the only other major chip maker for PC’s has also been working on an ARM competitor and likely will introduce something next year as well.All of this is good news for consumers of course—the more competition in the market the better the ultimate products will likely be. Not only will they be faster, and use less battery power, they’ll also likely include features not currently available on phones and notepads that personal computer users have taken for granted for years. Explore further (Phys.org) —ARM chip makers TSMC and GlobalFoundries have revealed that they plan to release ARM processor chips capable of running at 3GHz sometime next year. Such chips will almost certainly be welcomed with open arms by the users of the millions of phones, tablets, etc. which have them as part of a System-On-Chip (SoC) platform. © 2013 Phys.orgcenter_img This document is subject to copyright.

Return of the humpbacks

first_imgUVITA, Puntarenas — All was tranquil on the rolling, open sea as guests aboard a small skiff peered in all directions. A few brown booby birds soared just above the emerald green water, and just a few fluffy clouds hung in the light blue sky. Just when those aboard the boat were being lulled into a reverie, forgetting what they had even come to see, off in the distance, an expulsion of water shot into the air.The passengers cried out, and the captain directed the boat toward the spray, which had come from the blowhole of a female humpback whale. When the boat got close enough to the surfacing whale, its bumpy face, smooth dorsal fin and distinctive, white-tipped tail took turns coming into view. “She’s incredible,” one man said, barely able to believe his eyes. There were about a dozen people on board, and every one of them was snapping photos. It only got better when the boat captain pointed out that she was nursing her calf, which was also gigantic.   It was all part of the yearly Whale and Dolphin Festival held off the southern Pacific coast of Uvita, and this was the festival’s fifth iteration. The celebration also included fairgrounds with rides and vendor stalls, as well as nighttime concerts featuring some of Costa Rica’s top artists. But the whales are the big draw, as this is the best time of year to see them. The whale tours actually operate year round, said boat pilot Antonio Hernández, who is originally from Limón, on the Caribbean coast, and has been doing the job for 25 years. Although visitors don’t often see breaches or tail-exposing dives, sometimes they do get lucky, Hernández said.A two-hour tour costs $40 per person, with longer, more expensive tours offering trips to nearby islands. Though the tour includes the possibility of seeing dolphins, they are much less common, according to Hernández. On Saturday night, one of the most famous Costa Rican rock bands, Gandhi, performed a free concert on the beach. Composed of fanatic teenagers, older Costa Ricans and families with small children, the crowd thoroughly appreciated the show, temporarily neglecting a series of booths near the stage offering gifts, smoothies, churros and falafel sandwiches.During the daytime activities, a nonprofit group focusing on protecting marine life, the Keto Foundation, participated. Corey Kane David Palacios has been studying whales in Costa Rica for 11 years.  “The festival is a way to get people to come into the area to teach them about the biology, ecology and conservation of whales,” David Palacios from the Keto Foundation said in a phone interview.Palacios has been studying whales in Costa Rica for 11 years. The humpbacks seen during the September whale festival are from a group that has traveled from their feeding grounds near Antarctica, he said, a one-way journey of approximately 8,000 kilometers. The whales use the tropical waters for breeding and raising their calves, according to Palacios, then they return to Anarctica to feed. This group hung around in Uvita from July to October.A second group is popular in Uvita from March to April, having migrated from feeding grounds along California and Oregon.Palacios said the calves born near Uvita will experience substantial growth rates, adding 40 kilograms of mass per day, and two to three centimeters in length. The humpbacks will eventually grow to 25-40 tons and 14-17 meters in length. The rapid expansion comes from the mother feeding her calf an average of 200 liters of fatty milk per day.The most famous characteristic of humpbacks is the male’s song. These songs can reach up to 20 minutes in length and have been an insight into the humpback’s intelligence. Corey Kanecenter_img The fifth annual Whale and Dolphin Festival kicked off last weekend.  Courtesy of Whale and Dolphin Festival “Studies suggest they make the song to attract females and to announce to other males,” Palacios said.Palacios further explained that the songs serve an important role in defining territories for males in open water, where no natural borders, such as shores, exist to separate the competitive males.These lengthy songs will change over the course of a season, according to Palacios, with whales improvising the ends of songs, and often adopting sounds they have heard over a season. As Palacios explained, this phenomenon can be seen on a larger scale, because humpbacks traveling in Africa will have a different song dialect than whales traveling the Pacific coast of America.When songs fail, the males fight, hitting each other with their fins and backs, according to Palacios.Palacios said that while the days of serious commercial fishing are over for humpbacks, many threats still remain. Illegal fishing continues, and other sea commerce indirectly affects whales.Heavy shipping traffic collides with whales, said Palacios. For example, blue whales have collided with ships around Sri Lanka. Net fishing and other forms of trawlers can ensnare dolphins and whales. Costa Rican courts recently banned new licenses on shrimp net fishing, citing the entanglement and harm caused to numerous marine species.Palacios noted that for humpbacks, even the noise of the shipping traffic can create problems, blocking out their ability to hear other whales. Palacios said that whales often have a strong loyalty towards certain locations but also feel the need to live and travel in the company of others.“Because of this, it’s really important for countries to follow the guidelines for conservation,” Palacios said.

AP PHOTOS Marijuana clubs sprouting up in Uruguay

Uruguay legalized the drug in 2013, and over the last year has steadily implemented various aspects of the law. Late last year, the government began registering growers clubs, which are allowed to cultivate up to 99 plants and can have a maximum of 45 members.The clubs, which are sprouting up in Montevideo, often include giant greenhouses where members can grow plants to their liking and, of course, smoke a joint or two to test a harvest. Members can receive up to 1.4 ounces (40 grams) per month.While the law has brought many smokers out in the open, the clubs do have several strict regulations. For example, it’s illegal to be a club member and home grower at the same time or join more than one club.Joining Canabico Sativa requires a $400 enrollment fee and then monthly payments of $92. Much of that goes to maintaining the equipment needed to grow top quality weed. The club has dehumidifiers, fans, air conditioning units and carbon filters, all to nurture every step of the plants’ development.Joaquin Fonseca, president of Canabico Sativa, said after each harvest members decide which variety produced the best buds.“We have very high quality here,” he said. “And I’m happy because I get to smoke it.” 0 Comments   Share   5 greatest Kentucky Derby finishes Top Stories MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay (AP) — To hear Juan Vaz tell it, a successful marijuana club in Uruguay is akin to a five-star restaurant.“Today, we have to whet the palates of club members,” said Vaz, the technical adviser of Club Canabico Sativa in Montevideo, the small South American country’s capital. “We have to introduce them to the world of gourmet cannabis, which is the differentiator in our club.”center_img Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Sponsored Stories How men can have a healthy 2019 In this May 25, 2015 photo, Alvaro Calistro, president of the Manga Rosa Social Club, smokes a joint in the living room of his house where his has a marijuana club in Montevideo, Uruguay.
