They were trading at 590.5p at 1821 GMT, down from a high of 600p.The Trent XWB is the only engine that can power the Airbus A350 XWB planes, making the order an inevitable follow-on from the purchase of such an aircraft.Still, the company will hope today’s order will ease some of the negative publicity surrounding it following criticism by Qantas and others over its handling of the QF32 flight. It is under pressure to clarify how many Airbus A380 planes must have their engines replaced and how long that will take.“Bearing in mind confidence is at a low then any good news has to be positive for the price. “We should welcome it for what it is, a very large order for a well-proven set of engines,” said BGC analyst Howard Wheeldon. “In troubled times such as this, it’s super news and it’s great news for the UK in terms of exports as well,” he added.Rolls-Royce is already well established in China, where it has a 56 per cent share of the market for large civil aero-engines.

RFA to Senators: E15 the Answer, Not the Problem

first_img Mississippi Senator Roger Wicker and Louisiana Senator David Vitter have introduced legislation to block the introduction of E15. According to the Senators – allowing E15 into the marketplace would have a negative impact on families and businesses. But Renewable Fuels Association President and CEO Bob Dinneen says the legislation is clearly fueled by emotion and loyalty to home state oil constituents. He says oil companies are panicked because ethanol now represents 10-percent of the American fuel supply and are fighting to preserve their monopoly, their unfair and outrageously expensive tax credits and their record-breaking profits.Dinneen says RFA and the ethanol producers it represents would welcome a chance to meet with Wicker and Vitter to explain the benefits of E15 and dispel myths. He says the fact is that E15 is the most tested fuel in history and expanded use of the fuel will mean healthier people and a cleaner environment. In addition – Dinneen says ethanol displaces many of the toxins and carcinogens found in traditional gasoline while delivering benefits such as a 35 to 49-percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.If improving conditions for families and businesses is a primary concern – then Dinneen says ethanol is the answer – not the problem. Dinneen notes the ethanol industry created and supported 380-thousand jobs across the country in 2012. He says ethanol is also providing fuel choice and savings at the pump – delivering a savings of $1.09 per gallon last year.

The season is dedicated to the memory of founding Board member and friend Bill Stewart, whose leadership and generosity were critical to the ensemble’s early years.The season opens with a reprise of two audience favorites: the most well known of Mozart’s flute quartets (D Major, K. 285) and Schubert’s sublime E-Flat Major Piano Trio featuring Principal Pianist Warren Jones. Also on the program is the long awaited world premiere of John Harbison’s String Trio, commissioned for the ensemble’s Silver Anniversary by a consortium of Camerata audience members.Harpist Bridget Kibbey dazzled our audiences two seasons ago and returns this October as a Camerata Principal Artist. Her program will illuminate Kibbey’s reputation for redefining her instrument. Amongst a program of solo works, Bridget will collaborate with colleagues Richard O’Neill & Adrian Spence in Britten, Bach, Bruce and a premiere of a trio, Three Songs of Home, an anniversary gift from the Northern Irish composer Ian Wilson.In November, Camerata Principal Cellist Ani Aznavoorian welcomes two newer colleagues: violinist Paul Huang, who debuted with the Camerata last season and, keeping with the Northern Irish connection, our first collaboration with Belfast pianist Michael McHale.Last season’s premiere of Huang Ruo’s In Other Words has audiences still talking, not least for Richard O’Neill’s absolutely stunning performance. Another Chinese composer, Bright Sheng, was commissioned to write Hot Pepper for the Camerata — we’ll hear both works again in the first program of the New Year. Bridget Kibbey will join Nicholas Daniel in Elliott Carter’s 1992 Trilogy, and Paul Huang for Saint-Saëns brilliant Fantasie. The virtuosic program will come to a rousing close when the effervescent Ji Hye Jung and the irrepressible Jose Franch Ballester join Paul for Kevin Puts’ And Legions Will Rise.The February program is a program of favorites; music and musicians — Camerata’s wonderful principal artists, Nick Daniel, Richard O’Neill, Ani Aznavoorian & Warren Jones welcome violinist Arnaud Sussmann for his first appearance with the Camerata. The music making between these Camerata artists has become legendary and will be fully explored in this program, including a reprise performance of the Loeffler Rhapsodies, which will be absolutely magical.In March the ensemble is pleased to introduce violinist Kristin Lee and pianist Gloria Chien in a program traversing the boundaries of romanticism; from Beethoven’s proto-romantic ”Moonlight” sonata, through the gentle tones of Foote & Field, Debussy’s evocative Suite bergamasque, to the dramatic, opulently chromatic intensity of Schoenberg’s â€œTransfigured Night”.Intensity opens April’s concert with James MacMillan’s Kiss on Wood described by his publisher as “a short, static and serene meditation for violin and piano”, performed here with Warren Jones and violinist Priya Mitchell. Warren’s performance of the Lizst/Wagner Liebestod was one of his most celebrated Camerata performances and will be reprised in this program. The program will conclude with Brahms’ Horn Trio, and the amazing artistry of French hornist Martin Owen.In May, Camerata Pacifica will return to The Huntington Library to take residence in their brand new auditorium, with a reprise of the ensemble’s first program:At 7.30 p.m. on December 3rd, 1990, Santa Barbara’s Lobero Theatre filled with the exuberant tones of Bach’s Brandenburg Concerti as The Bach Camerata launched its inaugural season. As the scholar Christoff Wolf noted, Bach used the “widest spectrum of orchestral instruments … in daring combinations. Every one of the six concertos set a precedent in scoring, and every one was to remain without parallel.” And so we conclude our 25th season as we began our 1st — in celebration, this time of 25 years of performances of music without parallel.2014/2015 Silver Anniversary Season of ConcertsThe William A. Stewart SeasonSeptember 2014Thursday, September 11, 8pm, Los AngelesFriday, September 12, 1pm and 7.30 pm, Santa BarbaraSunday, September 14, 3pm, VenturaTuesday, September 16, 8pm, PasadenaMozart, W.

County Approves Local “Big Dig” Settlement

first_img 24 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Top of the News More Cool Stuff Photo courtesy Arroyo Seco FoundationThe Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved a settlement between L.A. County, the Arroyo Seco Foundation and the Audubon Society in the Devil’s Gate sediment removal project.“This settlement agreement is the result of many years of hard work on the part of the Arroyo Seco Foundation, Pasadena Audubon Society and the community,” said Attorney Mitchell Tsing. “As part of this settlement, the county is committing to preserve as well as restore and establish additional riparian habitat and reduce the Project’s air quality emissions by incentivizing the use of electric and compressed natural gas trucks. I am hopeful that this settlement will preserve and protect one of Pasadena’s greatest biological and recreational resource.”The county was seeking to remove Los Angeles County Public Works plans to remove up to 1.7 million cubic yards of sediment from the reservoir that’s immediately behind the nearly 100-year-old dam. The controversial project could last four years and has led to hundreds of truck trips in and out of the Arroyo Seco daily. Known as the Big Dig, the project has come under fire by residents of Pasadena and nearby La Cañada Flintridge.The settlement reduces the scope of the project and pollution by trucks performing the removal.“We were able to reduce the footprint of the project by 20 acres,” said Tim Brick, managing director of the Arroyo Seco Foundation. “We were able to improve the conditions of the habitat in 20 acres of where they had previous had set. They started with 70 acres and we were able to reduce it. So we were also able to get some substantial improvements in the habitat restoration program and to protect some of the key areas in Hahamongna.”• As part of the settlement: The County will not clear, excavate or otherwise conduct project activities in a 14-acre area at the upstream northeast area originally designated for clearing and excavation as part of the project.• Two border areas totaling 4.46 acres at the bottom of the basin and a 1.22-acre area near Flint Wash will be maintained episodically, rather than annually.• The County will carry out the habitat restoration plan approved by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife in November 2018 and implement measures to address the inflow of trash from the West Altadena Storm Drain.• During its annual maintenance activities after the initial 1.7 million CY of sediment are removed, the County will excavate no more than 220,000 cubic yards of sediment per year and will conduct no more than 300 round trips of sediment removal per day.• During the annual maintenance period and unless otherwise required for safe dam operation, the County will reduce the release of water from the dam after the storm season so that, to the extent feasible, a pool of water remains behind the dam until July first of that year.• The County will maintain rumble strips at the project site and continue to use the tire wash systems adjacent to the truck exit at Oak Grove Drive to ensure there is no track-out of mud or dirt on the local streets, and will remove these items at the conclusion of the initial sediment removal project so that area can be restored.• Conduct checks of the hauling trucks diagnostics system to verify the emissions control equipment is working appropriately and conduct a Truck Emissions Measurement Program.• Provide an incentive to encourage the contractor to use alternative-fuel dirt hauling trucks such as trucks equipped with compressed natural gas or electric engines.• A portion of the native plants and seeds for the project’s ongoing 70 acres of habitat restoration will be obtained from the Hahamongna Watershed Park by the Hahamongna Native Plant Nursery, operated by the Arroyo Seco Foundation.A large amount of sediment has not been removed from Devil’s Gate since 1994, when workers hauled out 160,000 cubic yards of soil and debris. An additional 1 million cubic yards of soil and debris were dumped into the basin by the Station fire in 2009, which burned more than 160,000 acres in Altadena, Pasadena, La Cañada Flintridge and Acton.Devil’s Gate is the oldest dam constructed by the LA County Flood Control District, providing flood protection for the cities of Pasadena, South Pasadena and Los Angeles..“One of our biggest goals was to make sure that this didn’t ever happen again,” Brick said. We knew they needed to do a sediment removal program, but we’ve regretted that they had taken so long to come to that conclusion. The last big removal, which was only a small fraction of what this one was, was in 1994. So they really haven’t moved anything for 26 years until they started a year ago. So we hope that we can prevent future, accumulations of sediment, with the program that will set a target and allow them to remove the sediment that comes in each year rather than having these massive kind of removal programs in the future.” CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Your email address will not be published.

Number of people who are out of work in Limerick City…

first_imgEmail THE number of people on the Live Register in Limerick is still “unacceptably high”, according to Sinn Féin councillor Maurice Quinlivan.He was commenting on figures from the Central Statistics Office (CSO) showing an increase of 421 in the number of people on the Live Register in the city since May. Data from the CSO also indicates an increase of nearly 100 young people in the city under the age of 25 signing on last month, rising from 1,933 in May to 2,030 in June.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Cllr Quinlivan believes that Limerick is not creating the jobs needed and he also said the EU-wide Youth Guarantee Plan needs to be reviewed immediately if it is to reach any of its goals. The scheme promises to make ‘offers’ to around 30,000 young Irish people at the highest risk of long-term unemployment this year.“The number of people on the Live Register is still unacceptably high. Figures from the Department of Social Protection also shows a huge number of long-term unemployed young people have been on the Live Register for more than a year,” he said.He believes the increase in the jobless figures reflects a lack of immediate opportunities or options for young people. The Youth Guarantee Plan is aimed at providing young people under the age of 25 with a good quality offer of employment, continued education, an apprenticeship or a traineeship within a short time of becoming unemployed. However, he claims many young people haven’t heard of it.“Many young people I’ve been in touch with recently haven’t even heard about the Youth Guarantee Plan, never mind being up to date on how they should go about trying to avail of a placement,” he claimed.“Limerick city is particularly suffering from a severe lack of jobs. Youth unemployment figures are climbing in both the city and the county. There is not the sense of urgency from our local ministers that the unemployment and emigration crisis demands. Indeed if it were not for schemes such as JobBridge and record emigration levels, the unemployment rate would be way higher,” he concluded.In response, a spokeswoman for the Department of Social Protection said that nationally, the seasonally-adjusted figure for young people on the Live Register fell by 1,300 in June (although the unadjusted figure rose slightly for reasons principally related to the end of the school/college year). This continues an almost uninterrupted series of monthly falls over the last two years.”“The increase quoted for Limerick in June also relates to the effects of seasonal factors. In fact, the number of young people on the register in Limerick continues to fall year-on-year. The June figure is down by 7 per cent on June last year, and by 32 per cent since June 2011.“The fall since 2011 has been slightly greater in Limerick than the fall of 29 per cent nationally over the same period,” the spokeswoman added.

You decide.#FarmersProtests #FarmLaws— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) January 20, 2021 The development comes after a bench comprising Chief Justice of India SA Bobde, Justices AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian refused to keep the application pending, while observing that the Delhi Police have the powers under law to check the law and order situation and that it is not a matter for the court to decide. On January 18, the Court had orally observed that it is for the Delhi police to decide on the entry of farmers and that the Court cannot be expected to pass orders on a law and order issue. “The question of entry into Delhi is a law and order situation that is to be determined by the police. We have told the AG and SG before that whether who should be allowed and who should not be allowed and the number of people who can enter are all matters of law and order to be dealt with the by the police. We are not the first authority. You are at liberty to invoke all powers under the law,” CJI SA Bobde had told the Attorney General. Today, on mentioning of the application by the Attorney General during hearing on the pleas against Farm laws, the CJI said, “We have told that it is for the police to decide. We won’t pass the orders. We will allow you to withdraw this application. You are the authority. You decide.” The AG told the Court 5000 tractors are going to enter Delhi. The Solicitor General urged the Court to keep the matter pending and consider it on January 25, to see how the situation develops. However, the three-Judge Bench refused to consider the matter citing Delhi Police’s authority under the law. Last week, the Supreme Court had told the Delhi Police that it is the ‘first authority’ to decide whether protesting farmers can be granted entry into the national capital or not. The Application filed by Delhi Police stated that it has come to the knowledge of security agencies that “a small group of protesting individuals/organisations have planned to carry out a tractor/trolley/vehicle march on Republic Day” and that the march is “slated to disturb and disrupt” the parade as well as create a law and order situation, thereby causing embarrassment to the nation. Highlighting that right to protest is subject to the countervailing public order and public interest, the Delhi Police submitted that the right cannot include “maligning the nation globally”. Noting that the Supreme Court is seized of the issues pertaining to the constitutionality of the Farm Acts and the Farmers’ protests, the Application sought for the Top Court to pass an injunction restraining such protest march scheduled on Republic Day. The Supreme Court had issued notice on the petition on January 12. The CJI later remarked that he need not tell the Union of India that it has powers under law to tackle the situation.On January 12, the top court had stayed the implementation of the farm laws until further orders after observing that the Centre has failed in its negotiations. The SC also constituted a committee for talks. The Committee was asked to submit a report within 2 months. The Court also observed that all farmers union “shall” appear before the Committee, thereby making it clear that it was mandatory for the unions to participate in the talks. However, the protesting unions said they will not appear before the committee.The SC observed in its order that the staying the implementation will “assuage hurt feelings of farmers” and will “encourage them to return”.A notable feature of the composition of the committee was that all four members- BS Mann, Ashok Gulati, Dr Pramod Kumar Joshi and Anil Ghanwat- have expressed open views in support of implementation of farm laws. The protesting unions said that they will not appear before a Committee which has only members representing a one-side view.Following backlash, BS Mann later announced that he was recusing from the court-appointed committee.In another significant development, one farmers’ union, Bhartiya Kisan Union Lokshakti, filed an application seeking the complete reconstitution of the Committee constituted by the SC for negotiations.
