Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 30 June 2019:( AETOSWire)-- In conjunction with the convening of the preparatory conference for the UN 2019 Climate Summit (COP 25) in Abu Dhabi, the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy announced that the net CO2 emissions of Dubai have decreased by 19% compared to the business as usual (BAU) scenario and 10% below the Carbon Abatement Strategy 2021 target to reduce carbon emissions by 16% by 2021.
The Dubai Supreme Council of Energy has been monitoring Dubai’s carbon emission since 2011 through the United Nations’ MRV methodology (Monitoring, Reporting and Verification). This detailed data-centric platform has allowed Dubai decision makers to streamline their strategy and was pivotal to other initiatives and projects such as the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, the Green Fund, the World Green Economy Organization (WGEO), Shams Dubai and Electric Vehicles initiatives.
Data for the past few years have recorded a decline in the per-capita annual consumption of electricity and water in Dubai. Per capita annual consumption of electricity has fallen from 13,626 kwh in 2015 to 11.731 kwh in 2018 and is expected to reach 10,538 kwh by 2025. Annual per capita consumption of water has decreased from 38554 IG to 33,565 IG in 2018. It is expected to reach 28,455 IG in 2025.
The UAE recorded an improvement of 60% bringing the per capita emissions to 15.7tCO2 in the last MRV compiled, well below the US ranking of 16.5tCO2 per capita.
“We are honored by these results as we strive to achieve the vision of our wise leadership. Dubai has taken early steps to conserve natural resources, increase the contribution of clean energy, and implement green development plans, consistent with our strategies at the federal and local levels, including UAE Centennial 2071, and UAE Vision 2021. Dubai has been a pioneer in the implementation of programmes and initiatives that contribute to reducing the carbon footprint and its pursuit of a greener future is proving its validity,” said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy.
The MRV data infographics is expected to be publicly released during the upcoming World Green Economy Summit taking place in October 2019. *Source: AETOSWire

OIRSCHOT, The Netherlands-- (BUSINESS WIRE/AETOSWire)-- The Robot and Autonomous Systems (RAS) Unit of the 13th Light Brigade of the Royal Netherlands Army received two THeMIS unmanned ground vehicles developed by Milrem Robotics in April for their Concept Development and Experimentation Project.
Milrem Robotics delivered the two UGVs in the middle of April for the Army’s project that looks into how to exploit the possibilities new unmanned platforms provide for increasing combat power and decreasing risk to soldiers.
The THeMIS UGVs were delivered in transport configuration together with initial spare parts and accessories. The company will also provide operator and maintenance training, tactical deployment know-how and life cycle support and upgrades during a two-year period.
“We are extremely proud to have the THeMIS in operation with the Royal Netherlands Army,” Kuldar Väärsi, CEO of Milrem Robotics stated. “Rigorous tests and combat exercises held in Europe, US and the Middle-East have proven that the THeMIS is an effective tool for dismounted troops and we have no doubt the Dutch Army will be more than satisfied,” he added.
“The THeMIS UGVs were chosen for their superior terrain skills – this 1,5-ton robot can effortlessly negotiate 30 degree slopes while carrying a payload of at least 750 kg with ease,” said Lieutenant Colonel Jules den Ouden, commander of the RAS unit.
The THeMIS’ capabilities were put to the test right after delivery in the tough Scottish landscape during an exercise where the RAS used unmanned ground vehicles for the first time.
“The THeMIS played a major role in the supply chain. Why would we need to go get ammo and set ourselves up as targets when the THeMIS can bring it to us?” the commander asked.
The THeMIS has been previously deployed in several military exercises for example Last Mile and Army Warfighting Experiment 2018 in the UK. One THeMIS UGV was recently deployed in Mali together with soldiers from the Estonian Defence Forces.

One of the 10 conditions for parents to seek medical attention, constipation among children is rising and is particularly affecting their self esteem
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 28 May, 2019—(AETOSWire)-- Reem visited Emirates Hospital - Jumeirah (EHJ) – an Emirates Healthcare company and an internationally recognised 100-bed beacon of progress in the region’s healthcare system after her 4-year-old son, Rayan complained of what she believed was diarrhoea. She sought medical attention after she realised something was wrong especially because Rayan was periodically releasing small quantities of loose stools.
On evaluation by Dr Sripradha Sudarsanam, a Specialist Paediatrician at EHJ, Rayan was diagnosed with chronic constipation.
“Many children who suffer from chronic constipation experience leaking of soft stools in their underwear which poses a big problem in their social and emotional dimensions. Because of the unconscious leaks, the children are almost always smelly and are being neglected and isolated in classroom by their peers. The leaky stools are the newly formed stool which trickles down through the hard stools stuck to the intestine. Sometimes vigorous pushing due to urge to defecate can cause a tear in the anal region and cause bleeding as well,” explained Dr Sudarsanam.
According to studies, 30 percent of children are affected by constipation at some point in their lives. When not adequately treated, chronic constipation can lead to haemorrhoids, anal fissures, bowel bleeding and faecal incontinence.
“Children who are improperly toilet-trained and lack fibre intake in their diet often complain of chronic constipation. Parents should ensure that children avoid processed food and eat food rich in fibre, such as fruits and whole grains. They must also monitor their child’s fluid intake and ensure that they drink between 1 to 1.5 litres of water each day,” said Dr Sudarsanam.
Constipation is a vicious cycle, and seeking medical attention at the right time can help avoid further complications in children while also helping their emotional and mental health from deteriorating.
