According to a new study, potentially dangerous levels of lead were found in household dust in Sydney’s inland west and in the CBD. Scientists at Macquarie University have analyzed dust absorbed by vacuum cleaners in 224 homes in Sydney for the presence of various toxins, which yielded some alarming results. Researchers estimate that one of five children aged one to two years may have elevated levels of lead accumulated by swallowing and inhaling harming dust. Lead poisoning can permanently disable children, reduce IQ and cause other illnesses.
Among the reasons leading to higher concentrations of lead in dust in the suburbs within 10 km of the city are the presence of old houses with peeling or degraded lead paint, recent renovations, traffic pollution, and the legacy of decades of industry.
Measures that families can take to reduce the effects of toxins in their home include a “no shoes” policy, regularly dusting with a damp cloth, washing hands and faces regularly, using a wet mop instead of dry cleaning, and using a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter.

The number of loan defaults is increasing in the cities of Melbourne and Sydney. The main reason for the increasing number of defaults is the reluctance by the non-bank lenders to extend the credit. Some of the lenders have now decided not to go to these lending companies in the area of Sydney and Melbourne. However, the receivers and managers of these non-bank lending services are expecting increased workload as investors invariably default on their loans.
These defaults are generally due to the failure of pre-sales of the residential projects. Raylan group has been one of the biggest defaulters of the scenario. However, there are other projects also who are on the verge of a default. Allen Walker, a partner at Cor Cordis, said that she is excepting more business due to the loan defaults in the coming months.
The dams of Sydney are witnessing an alarming rate of depreciation. Sydney would need at least a metre of rain and a major flood to bring back the dam level at reasonable. Government agencies circulated the details of the State of Sydney catchments earlier this month. The State of New South Wales is preparing itself for an increased amount of stress on the State’s water supply, with a particular focus on Murray-Darling Basin.
A government document stated that it would take an approximate amount of 1000 millimetres of rain across the year to break the current situation of drought in Greater Sydney. The report further stated that it might also take over 200 millimetres of rain over one or two days. Sydney’s dams are about 48 percent full and are down by 10 billion litres over the past week. If the city’s desalination plant would not have produced 250 million litres the weekly drop of 0.4 percent would have been more.
Sydney Metro is looking to expand its network with seven new metros being prepared across Western Sydney. To create space for the subway stations, the government has issued order to evict residents of 115 properties. Several local businesses are also being demolished in the process, which also includes the entire Sydney Speedway.
One of the residents being evicted from his home is an 88- year old Martino Colacicco. He has lived at his five dock home for more than 50 years. He moved into the resident in 1966. However, a knock of his door by a government official changed everything. He was informed that his property was being acquired compulsorily by the government of New South Wales to make way for the new western metros. Mr. Colacicco said that this is not a democracy, and this is communism. The transport minister ensured a speedy recovery of the residents.

Well-known agent John McGrath published his annual report for 2019 on Wednesday and named Kensington in the inner northwest of Melbourne one of the most attractive suburbs for buyers. The multicultural Carnegie and coastal Cheltenham in the southeast are also among the top five at McGrath, along with Watsonia in the north and the upcoming Upway in the craggy east.

Frankfurt und die Region wollen auf dem Gebiet der künstlichen Intelligenz eine führende Rolle spielen. Wirtschaft, Forschung und Politik wollen zusammenarbeiten. Ziel ist das Institut für Künstliche Intelligenz.
Forschung, Wirtschaft und Politik wollen die Rhein-Main-Region zur führenden Region für Künstliche Intelligenz (KI) in Deutschland machen. Einerseits beteiligen sich Partner aktiv an der Initiative „Künstliche Intelligenz in Frankfurt“ - Universitäten, Unternehmen, Forschungsinstitute, Wirtschaftsförderungsagenturen -, um einen Verein zu gründen, der dazu beitragen soll, die Bindungen zwischen den Teilnehmern zu stärken. Prominente Unternehmer wie Chris Boos, Leiter des Frankfurter AI-Unternehmens Arago und Mitglied des Digital Council des Bundesrates, sowie führende AI-Forscher wie Christian Kersting von der TU Darmstadt tragen dazu bei.
Künstliche Intelligenz kann Frankfurt verändern
Boos nannte diese Initiative „einen echten Hoffnungsschimmer“. In diesem Bereich war es äußerst wichtig, zusammenzuarbeiten, und der Unternehmer machte deutlich, inwieweit künstliche Intelligenz zu Veränderungen führen sollte. Unter anderem wurde der Automatisierungsgrad stark erhöht.
Boos sprach sogar vom Ende des Industriezeitalters. Künstliche Intelligenz ist jetzt nicht nur das Erkennen von Mustern oder Vorhersagen, sondern auch „Entscheidungsmaschinen“, die individuelle Probleme lösen. Künstliche Intelligenz bleibt jedoch ein Werkzeug, das die Menschen fragen.
Künstliche Intelligenz kann auch beim Klimawandel helfen
Laut Martina Clarlet, Vizepräsidentin der Fachhochschule Frankfurt, kann künstliche Intelligenz dazu beitragen, multidisziplinäre Lösungen für Probleme wie Klimawandel, Energie und Verkehr sowie soziale Probleme zu finden. Der Ausbau der Beziehungen zwischen den Beteiligten werde das Ökosystem in diesem Bereich erheblich verbessern.
Alfred Ermer sagte, wie Boos unter der Führung von Arago, dass künstliche Intelligenz kein Zukunftsthema ist, sondern heute in Unternehmen Realität ist. Er stützte sich auf das im Rahmen dieser Initiative erstellte Inventar, bei dem 70 Unternehmen, Lösungsanbieter und Forschungsinstitute oder Universitäten in der Region befragt wurden. 80 Prozent der Befragten gaben an, bereits künstliche Intelligenz zu nutzen, darunter Unternehmen wie die Deutsche Börse und Lufthansa, mittelständische Unternehmen in der Region wie Samson und Heraeus sowie Institutionen wie die Bundesbank und die Europäische Zentralbank.
Eine Bestandsaufnahme der KI-Aktivitäten zwischen Mainz und Aschaffenburg, Gießen und Darmstadt bildete die Initiative KI Frankfurt. Es zeigt, welche Methoden zu dem Thema sie bearbeitet und untersucht haben.
Die Fachhochschule Frankfurt, Arago, Software AG und Meso, die Hochschule für Medien, Kommunikation und Wirtschaft und die Wirtschaftsregion Frankfurt haben sich an dieser „Karte“ beteiligt.
