Le gouvernement accepte maintenant les demandes des petites entreprises au Programme de bons pour la productivité et l’innovation. Ce programme aide les petites entreprises à élaborer un nouveau produit ou service et à le mettre en marché, en leur donnant accès aux conseils et à l’appui d’experts des universités et des collèges de la Nouvelle-Écosse. « Le programme provincial de bons inspire les efforts conjoints entre l’industrie et leurs partenaires en enseignement postsecondaire, a dit Wayne St-Amour, directeur général de l’innovation et de l’entrepreneuriat et doyen de la recherche appliquée au Nova Scotia Community College. Le programme nous permet d’appuyer des projets dans la communauté grâce à notre expertise collective en matière de technologies novatrices de résolution de problèmes. » « Nous avons l’occasion d’aider les entreprises à prendre leur idée et en faire une application commerciale. » Plus de 240 entreprises ont reçu des bons depuis le lancement du programme en 2008, dont 51 l’année dernière. L’une des entreprises ayant reçu un bon l’année dernière est Scotia Weather Services Inc. de Dartmouth. « Nous sommes toujours à la recherche de nouvelles méthodes et technologies pour améliorer la façon dont nous présentons l’information météorologique à nos clients, a dit Malcolm MacLeod, président de Scotia Weather Services. Le bon nous a permis de faire appel aux services d’un expert du NSCC ayant une vaste expérience en matière de systèmes d’information géographique pour évaluer la capacité d’un progiciel visant à élaborer de nouveaux produits pour nos clients, afin de leur permettre de prendre des décisions liées aux conditions météorologiques. » « Nous avons déterminé que ce logiciel peut nous aider à améliorer nos produits, ce qui nous aidera donc à élargir notre entreprise de service de renseignements météorologiques. » Le programme offre deux types de bons. La première série de bons offre jusqu’à 15 000 $ en services et conseils d’experts dans des domaines tels que la recherche appliquée, les essais sur chantier, le prototypage, les services d’ingénierie, la conception de produits et les études de faisabilité. La deuxième série de bons offre jusqu’à 25 000 $ aux entreprises qui ont déjà reçu des bons, leur permettant de miser sur le travail déjà accompli avec le projet initial. « L’établissement de liens entre les petites entreprises et toute l’expertise qui est à notre portée dans nos universités et nos collèges aidera les entreprises à devenir plus concurrentielles et plus rentables, a dit Michel Samson, ministre du Développement économique et rural et du Tourisme. Grâce à ce programme, les petites entreprises peuvent obtenir des conseils et du soutien d’experts pour faire avancer leurs idées novatrices. » Pour être admissibles, les entreprises doivent être inscrites en Nouvelle-Écosse et doivent compter moins de 100 employés au moment de la demande. Les entreprises peuvent obtenir plus d’information et les formulaires de demande au www.gov.ns.ca/econ/pnivouchers (en anglais seulement). La date limite pour les demandes pour la première série de bons est le 10 octobre, et pour la deuxième série de bons, le 17 octobre.
WASHINGTON — The Washington Nationals had a six-run lead and needed only nine outs to trim their deficit in the NL East.From that point on, nothing went right.The Nationals’ bullpen gave away the entire advantage in the seventh inning, Kirk Nieuwenhuis hit a pinch-homer off Jonathan Papelbon in the eighth and the New York Mets escaped with an 8-7 victory Sept. 8 night to lengthen their division lead over Washington to six games.Afterward, the Nationals had no choice but to look ahead and try to forget this disappointing defeat as soon as possible.“This season is far from over,” Papelbon said. “Everybody’s got to pick up everybody in every count, in every situation. There’s nothing else we can do. We’ve got to keep grinding, go out and win another ballgame tomorrow.”Manager Matt Williams offered a similar spin.“There’s times where things go well. And you understand that there’s times on the other side of that coin,” he said. “So what do you do? You pick yourselves up by the bootstraps and you go. You don’t have a choice at this point.”The Mets erased the deficit with a six-run seventh fueled by six walks — half of them by Drew Storen — and a wild pitch (also by Storen). The big blow was a three-run double by Yoenis Cespedes, who one inning earlier committed an error that allowed three runs to score.Nieuwenhuis gave New York its first lead with a drive to right off Papelbon (3-2), obtained before the July 31 trade deadline to help Washington’s drive toward the postseason. It was Nieuwenhuis’ fourth home run; the other three came in one game against Arizona on July 12.“We’re playing like we don’t have anything to lose, and that’s what we need to do,” Nieuwenhuis said. “I’m just going to enjoy the ride.”Addison Reed (3-2) worked the seventh and Jeurys Familia got three outs for his 38th save. With two runners on, Familia got Yunel Escobar to ground into a game-ending double play.Mets starter Matt Harvey allowed a career high-tying seven runs in 5 1-3 innings.Harvey has thrown 171 2-3 innings this year, his first season since undergoing elbow ligament-replacement surgery in October 2013.He and the Mets want to keep his innings count at around 180-185 for the regular season, so it is possible this was Harvey’s last start until early October or in the postseason.Until that time, the right-hander will have this game to ponder. He came in with a 0.99 ERA against the Nationals, and the seven runs he allowed were one more than in his previous six starts combined.It was 3-1 in the sixth when the Nationals used a single, a walk and a bunt to load the bases. Wilson Ramos struck out before Michael Taylor lined an RBI single to center, and three more runs came home when the ball got past Cespedes and rolled to the wall.That ended Harvey’s night, but the Mets’ comeback prevented him from falling to 12-8.(DAVID GINSBURG, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shares
Although car companies have not broken the law, campaigners said they were misleading customers by claiming their vehicles were greenCredit:Tobias Schwarz REUTERS Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. Paul Morozzo, Greenpeace Clean Air Campaigner, said: “Carmakers, backed by the industry lobby, are yet again knowingly misleading their customers and the public at large by marketing new Euro 6 diesels as the ‘cleanest in history’.“Their own data shows that more than half of the very newest, top selling, Euro 6 diesel cars pollute far above the latest standards.“They’re still dirty and they’re still putting peoples’ health at risk. It’s time the industry took responsibility and stopped investing in diesel.”The data also showed that some manufacturers had managed to produce diesel cars well below the limit such as Opel/Vauxhall’s 2 litre Grandland-X which recorded overall NOx emissions of no more than 35.5mg/km.Almost all of the strongest performers were fitted with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology, which converts nitrogen oxides into nitrogen and water by injecting urea into the exhaust. However experts said most companies would choose to simply ditch diesel in future rather than adopt expensive methods for lowering emissions.Dr James Tate, Associate Professor at the Institute for Transport Studies , at the University of Leeds, said: “It is evident that controlling NOx emissions from diesel cars is challenging and expensive, with only a handful of manufactures of new models currently being found to emit NOx at a lower level.“The result is most manufacturers are already stepping away from manufacturing smaller diesel cars, with Fiat Chrysler declaring they’ll ditch diesel altogether from all its cars by 2022, and all Volvo cars launched from 2019 onwards will be partially or completely battery-powered.”Fiat declined to comment on the investigation. Renault said all but two of its diesel vehicles now fell within the new nitrogen oxide levels, while Opel/Vauxhall said the cars highlighted in the report did not need to meet September levels. Diesel cars marketed as the ‘cleanest in history’ are still belching out more than four times the legal limit of harmful nitrogen oxide, an investigation has found.A study of the newest models of the greenest Euro 6 diesel cars on sale across Europe by Greenpeace investigators found half of cars recently approved for sale would not be allowed on the market if tested today.Although car manufacturers were ordered to clean up their emissions following the Volkswagen ‘dieselgate’ scandal in 2015, limits for nitrogen oxide did not come in until September last year.When campaigners tested cars between April 2016 and September 2017 they found half emitted nitrogen oxide gas above the new legal limit of 168mg/km NOx.The worst results were for the 1.6 litre Fiat Tipo, which recorded overall emissions of 561mg/km – 3.3 times the current legal limit – and 753mg/km in urban driving – 4.5 times the limit.Other cars with poor results for emissions include the Renault Scenic Energy dCi 95 which was 2.4 times over the limit and Opel/Vauxhall’s 1.6l Crossland-X at 2.3 times the limit.And because they were tested before the new limit came into effect, manufactures are able to label their cars as Euro6 – the greenest category.
