Paphos hospice forced to downsize

THE Friends Hospice in Paphos has been forced to scale down its operation due to the deepening economic crisis.

The hospice is currently the only operational hospice in Paphos and is situated in a dedicated wing of the Evangelismos hospital. Since opening in 2006, the facility has expanded and now consists of a seven-bed unit which is solely run by donations, money raised by the shops and fundraising events.

According to a hospice spokesman, running a multi-bed facility is no longer an option. He said: “We can’t continue as we are as we just can’t bring in the €500,000 which is needed to operate the hospice every year.”

Noble firms up drilling date

NOBLE Energy will begin appraisal drilling in its Block 12 offshore licence most likely in June, its CEO Charles Davidson said yesterday.

It was the first time the Houston-based company committed to anything close to a firm date for follow-up prospecting after initial drilling back in late 2011.

“Cyprus is very important to Noble Energy…we are committed to move forward with our Cyprus discovery,” the Noble boss said during a press briefing on the sidelines of the Eastern Mediterranean Gas Conference held in Nicosia.

In the eastern Mediterranean, Noble’s priorities in the region lie in Cyprus and the Tamar and Leviathan prospects in Israel, Davidson said, driving the point home.

The four-legged victims of the crisis

DOG shelters all over the island are struggling more than ever to feed the animals in their care, and some are even close to shutting down.

The only thing saving them in the short term is a small amount of funding from the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW).

IFAW is a US-based organisation that rescues animals, protects entire populations and preserves habitats. The organisation normally helps animals all over the world who have been struck by natural disasters.

Our View: Deputies have always refused to set a good example

FOR YEARS now we have been hearing about the need for politicians to publish capital statements as part of the process to introduce transparency to public life. Draft legislation has been prepared and been found wanting during discussions, with deputies always picking holes in it without ever coming up with alternative proposals. It is the same, negative approach used for proposals relating to the Cyprus problem, by which politicians cite all the reasons why they would fail.

Five crew killed in ship drill

FIVE crew members died in an emergency drill on a Cypriot- owned cruise ship in the Canary Islands on Sunday.

Cables snapped on a lifeboat and it plunged 20 metres to the ocean and fell upside down, killing the five and injuring three others aboard, during the mock rescue exercise on the Thomson Majesty, operated by British travel group TUI Travel plc and owned by Cyprus-based Louis.

The boat was docked in the port of the capital of the island of La Palma, Santa Cruz.

Safety tests on lifeboats are a significant source of accidents, according to a report by Britain’s Marine Accident Investigation Branch.

Memorable profiles with only a few duds


MUSICIANS make good profiles. Politicians make terrible profiles. Undertakers, it turns out, make superb profiles. Artistic types in general – theatre actors, avant-garde filmmakers, visiting choreographers – are a safe bet, but almost too articulate for their own good; you always feel they’ve said it all before, in previous interviews. Chinese people tend to fall back on bland generalities while in profile mode, based on my limited experience of Chinese subjects. Rwandans will chuckle good-naturedly even when recounting the most awful stories, based on my equally limited experience of Rwandans.

Cypriot team to map energy consumption in buildings across EU

A CYPRIOT team led by an environmental scientist has won a contest in Berlin to map the energy consumption of buildings across the European Union.

Environmental scientist and lecturer at the Technological University of Cyprus TEPAK Alexandros Charalambides has been working on prototypes for two years to give flesh to his idea to create an online map displaying the energy consumption of buildings to make people more aware of energy usage.

The idea gave rise to ENERMAP, voted first out of 55 other ideas and part of a team of ten who were invited to the “Open Innovation Slam” in Berlin last week to work on a pitch addressed to academics and energy experts.
