Spanning the millennium head on Department of recognition and Technology Region IV-A Vol. 16 No. 2 February 2008 DOST-ITDI, ICETT implement GFIS Joined hands with DOST CALABARZON in discolour environments The Industrial Technology Development Institute, a line agency of DOST, in cooperation with the International contract for Environmental Technology Transfer (ICETT), based in Yokkaichi City, Prefecture of Mie, Japan, and select DOST Regional slips ar firing up local anaesthetic initiatives to progress productivity yet still preserve local environment.ICETT, with the support and cooperation of its bear national and local governments, industry, and academe, utilizes Japans collected industrial technologies and administrative measures on environmental conservation. It applies these to implement programs and projects on the same together with participating countries. The aim is to fire discolour of regional environments and hinder their destruction overseas, thus achieving conservation globally. together with ICETT, the Philippines as participating state is thus implementing Green Framework of ripe Strategy on Sustainable Consumption and Productivity or GFIS, a five-year project of DOST-ITDI through and through its program on Cleaner production. GFIS aims to 1. Establish pretence industrial-eco barangays, t sustains and communities 2. Improve environmental performance of both local industries and its community through environmental aw atomic number 18ness, Cleaner Production (CP), Energy Efficiency (EE), and Environmental focal point System (EMS) and 3.Recommend provisions for inclusion in policy recommendations to local government units and national government agencies. GREENHOUSE EFFECT GFIS aims to enhance greening of regional environments thus contributing to global diminution of the Greenhouse Effect. The nursery effect refers to the way in which gases in the Earths post warm the Earth interchangeable the glass roof of a babys roomby let ting sun imperfect in but keeping the reflected disturb energy trapped inside.These rude(a)ly occurring gases, notably carbon dioxide and water vapor, are called greenhouse gases. DOST CALABARZON Bulletin February 2008 DOST-ITDI claims that one of the components of GFIS under the CP program is technological ability building of staffs. It added CP is a forward looking anticipate and prevent philosophy. Thus, firms prevent pollution in the first place they occur resulting in reduced wastes generated at source. This indirectly reduces operating costs and increases safety of workers.The results are an improved corporate sign as perceived by the globe and global competitiveness. GFIS is being operate tested at DOST NCR, DOST CALABARZON and DOST Region V. DOST CALABARZON through Guilberto A. Veluz, Center Manager for skilful Operations, recently initiated conduct of a three-day training and workshop for Cleaner Production Assessors of the region at Batis Aramin Resort and Hotel i n Lucban, Quezon. The Regional Office intended to build CP and EE technical capabilities of 18 CP assessors from five put up universities in CALABARZON.These include Provincial S Center of Quezon, Cavite State University, laguna State Polytechnic University, Batangas State University, University of Rizal System, and the S turn outhern Luzon State University. During the training, the assessors evaluated production of Center Miki Factory and Valdes Poultry Farm in Lucban, and Capistrano Distillery and Kamayan sa Palaisdaan in Tayabas. The assessors completed drafting of the FiRST Reports (Findings, Recommendations, Schedules and Tasks) and gave copies to management representatives of participating firms. They will quit the complete CP report one month after the training.

They arrange out that young coconut husk extract imparts red to abandon glossiness on silk, pina-seda and pina while it causes an old rose color on cotton. They similarly established colorfastness, laundering and light ratings of the dyed materials and found these to be satisfactory for all these types. Coconut husks potential to impart red color comes as a necessary indulgence for textile manufacturers who use in great quantities the non-colorfas t red dye from sibukao (Caesalpinnia sappan).The textile institutes research study revealed that young coconut husks sourced from different locations produce varying shades of red. This required thus hue and color tint matching capabilities and adjustments in the dyeing parameters. In addition, DOST-PTRI found that coconuts from high elevations yield almost no color compared with coconuts from coastals and low- lying areas. This new use for young coconut husks holds herald for additional income for farmers. Likewise, the new techniques requirement for compulsory chopping of husks before extraction facilitates rapid decomposition.This reduces the risk of clogging of waterways and drainage systems along coconut processing villages. Incidentally, this emerging natural dye industry runs complimentary to the depicted object Coconut Agenda as it does not compete with the food and wellness uses of coconut. DOST-PTRI pilot tested the young coconut husk extraction and textile application technology using materials from the Bahaghari and kaLIKHAsan charm of Kingsmen Corporation and Mariana Fashion Apparels, respectively. The technique forms part of the package of technologies adopted and commercialized by Soumak Collection to produce one of their original color options.Their dyed creations are sold in select shops in California, New York City, parts of Asia, and soon in Europe. Soumak Collection also tried the new dyeing technology on cotton bed linens for their Bed and Beddings collection.

An flat coat observation system will be beneficial to the uncouth, says Dr.Reynaldo Ebora, Executive director of the Department of Science and Technologys Philippine Council for Advanced Science and Technology Research and Development (DOST-PCASTRD), convenor of the congress. The Philippines is perennially take uped by natural disasters, make timely, synoptic plaza-based information a necessity. Participants to the Second National Congress gave solid support for a proposal to explore possibilities of acquiring the countrys own earth-observing satellite.Once acquired, the satellite will provide weather forecast months in advance. It can predict where diseases like malaria and SARS are most likely to arise. While most may look at the ac quisition as a way to avoid b new(prenominal) in their daily activities, regular incidence of typhoons and their resulting diseases come on the importance of the satellite in saving lives and properties. According to DOSTs space technology expert Dr.Jose Edgardo Aban, having our own earth-observing satellite can assist the country in monitoring our vote down surface, biosphere, atmosphere, and surrounding oceans. The satellite can track environmental changes in areas it is assigned. Processes that the earth undergoes, be it biological, ecological, climatological, or geological, can be monitored and better understood. These will alter us, especially our leaders and experts, to make more informed decisions that may affect lives, the environment, and the economy.Aside from these, it can monitor forest fires, predict the effect of air select on people, provide farmers with immediate forecast to help increase agricultural yields, and calculate the pattern of typhoons and storms. Lik ewise, participants proposed the inclusion of satellite development and other related space technology applications in the school curriculum and alter the coordinative functions of the current Science and Technology Coordinating Council Committee on Space Technology Applications. DOST scholar grad finds 900 BLACK HOLES in the tiltA Department of Science and Technology-Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI) scholar-graduate is now making waves in the international astronomical world after leading a squad that discovered the badst number of super massive mordant holes in the centers of galaxies in the universe. Reinabelle Reyes, a PhD student at Princeton University and a BS physical comprehension summa cum laude graduate at the Ateneo de Manila University in 2005, led a team of Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) scientists that discovered a large number of concealed quasars that are shrouded in light-absorbing dust and gas.According to Reyes, her team found around 900 hidden q uasars, which is by far the largest sample constantly found. We found that hidden quasars make up at least half(prenominal) of the quasars in the nearby universe, implying that most of the powerful black holes in our area had previously been unrecognized, she verbalise. She added their discovery shows that powerful black holes are more roughhewn in the last eight billion years of cosmic score than had previously been thought and that the relative numbers of hidden compared to normal quasars show how the appearance of dust and gas determine the presence of a hidden quasar. The large number of hidden quasars we discovered implies that most of the light emitted by quasars is actually obscured. Moreover, because the light from these hidden quasars previously had been unaccounted for, black holes turn out to be more efficient in converting the energy of in-falling matter into light than we had thought, she said. The research team presented its discovery last January 9 at the yearly meeting of the American Astronomical Society in Austin, Texas, and has submitted a musical composition describing the research for publication in the Astronomical Journal.Reyes said their project is the flood tide of the graduate thesis work of her co-author, Nadia Zakamska, a long-term postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Advanced Study, under the supervision of Princeton professor Michael Strauss. Dr. Ester B. Ogena, Director of the DOST-SEI, said Reyes success in her career is a glaring example of the quality of scholar-graduates the country produces and the vast potential the Philippines has in space science. We hope that our students would be able to get inspiration from Reyes and pursue a career in the sciences that will 2 hopefully add to the roster of our great astronomers and space scientists, she said.

If the red giant is more massive, it generates heavy elements like iron and grows (2) to form a supergiant. Then it explodes and its matter is released into space. If the entire supergiant explodes (3), this is a supernova. Depending on its mass, the supernova gives birth either to a neutron star or, for even higher-mass stars, a black hole. If only the outer part of the supergiant explodes (4), a nova forms.The DOST-SEI has laid the prat for a Philippine Space Education Program in the country following a designat ion by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and ethnical OrganizationParis to act as focal point for its space-education program and related activities in the Philippines. It aims to promote science and technology, particularly space science, to Filipino students. The PSEP also seeks to engulf the Filipinos in the exploration of space science and technology and the process of science in various disciplines in an effort to create an educated public and o generate future space science explorers. Likewise, the PSEP aims to create consciousness among the students in career opportunities in the various fields of science and engineer including space science that would raise standards and address skill shortages towards national development. It also aspires to establish linkages and partnership with space organizations and institutions for possible assistance and collaboration in space science education programs and projects.
