Energy policy focus of Roby town hall

first_imgLatest Stories By Jaine Treadwell Print Article The Partnership for Affordable Clean Energy (PACE) and the Alabama Agribusiness Council will hold a town hall meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 16, at Hawkins Hall on the campus of Troy University. The keynote speaker will be Rep. Martha Roby. The public is invited and encourage to attend.The purpose of the town hall meeting is to educate consumers on energy policy and the importance of why energy providers must be active participants when seeking solutions for the future. The town hall meeting will also focus on the need for energy providers to maintain the ability to provide the average family the reliable, affordable energy they expect.Lance Brown, PACE executive director, said the town hall meeting is very important to the general public because, with all of the changes in the way electricity is supplied and what is happening in Washington, it is important for consumers to plug into the process and make their voices heard. The town hall meeting will close with a panel discussion moderated by Brown and made up of panelists, Gary Palmer, Alabama Policy Institute; Gary Smith, PowerSouth Energy Cooperative; Dr. James Rinehart, Troy University; and Floyd Gilliland, Jr. attorney.Brown formed PACE in 2009 as a way of fighting for national energy policies that are fair and sensible. He organized more than 20 Southeastern organizations to form a coalition to change the national dialogue about national energy policy.Brown presents to community and civic organization, appears as a subject matter expert on energy policy with the media, publishes a regular energy column in The Daily Caller (Washington D.C.) and serves on a consumer board for the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Book Nook to reopen Energy policy focus of Roby town hall Published 11:00 pm Thursday, August 11, 2011center_img Next Up“PACE is a grassroots organization of working people, business owners, environmentalists and trade organizations who are fighting for fair, responsible energy policies. PACE believes that the national conversation about the future of energy must include discussion about the cost of particular energy alternative, not just environmental benefits.”Brown said that, in the end, it is America’s working families and businesses that pay for the energy future that is created today and that future “must be affordable.”The town hall meeting will be an opportunity for local citizens to “plug into the process.” By The Penny Hoarder Around the WebDoctor: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Health VideosIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

School baseball coach, wife electrocuted to death repairing hurricane damage on field

first_imgMattGush/iStock(BRISTOL, Fla.) — A high school baseball coach and his wife were electrocuted to death on the field in Florida while trying to repair hurricane damage, authorities said.Liberty County High School’s head baseball coach, Corey Crum, was operating a boom lift and unloading equipment from a trailer at the school’s baseball field in Bristol, west of Tallahassee, when the lift struck power lines overhead on Sunday afternoon.Crum, 39, was electrocuted, and then his 41-year-old wife, Shana, was electrocuted trying to help him, according to the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office.The couple died at the scene.Their 14-year-old son was also shocked by the electrified lift while trying to help his parents but is expected to survive. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment of his injuries, according to the sheriff’s office.Several members of the school’s baseball team, their parents and community volunteers were on the baseball field at the time to help Crum with repairs.The field was heavily damaged when Hurricane Michael, a historic Category 4 storm, slammed into the Florida Panhandle last October, killing dozens of people.The students were taken to the school gym after the incident, where grief counselors were made available, according to the sheriff’s office.Representatives for Liberty County High School and the encompassing Liberty County School District did not immediately respond to ABC News’ requests for comment Tuesday morning.“This is a tragic event which has rocked our community to its core,” Liberty County Sheriff Eddie Joe White said in a statement Monday.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Low-skilled EU workers could benefit from 11-month visa

Previous Article Next Article Theresa May and Donald Tusk at the EU Brexit press conference this weekend Pignatelli/Euc/Ropi/ROPI via ZUMA Press/REX/Shutterstock Leaked Cabinet papers suggest that the Home Office is drawing up plans to issue low-skilled migrants with 11-month visas “with restricted entitlements and rights” while they live in the UK.BrexitTechnical amendments to employment law to ensure smooth Brexit take effectFarmers should not get ‘privileged’ access to workers after BrexitAccording to newspaper reports, the government is also considering alternative plans to allow EU migrants aged between 18 and 30 to live and work in the UK for two years, providing numbers are capped.The long-awaited immigration white paper – which will detail post-Brexit immigration rules after the recommendations of the Migration Advisory Committee report issued in September – is likely to come out next week (commencing 3 December).Prime minister Theresa May has so far indicated that the government is likely to follow many of the recommendations, which focus on attracting high-skilled, highly paid workers from both the EU and outside.The MAC has suggested the UK extends the current visa scheme available to non-EU nationals to EU workers, providing they reach a certain skills threshold and earn more than £30,000.However, this has been met with anger from several industries, such as hospitality and construction, which rely on EU workers but would struggle to meet the skills and salary thresholds for many roles.The MAC recommended that the only concession on this might be for the agriculture sector, which should benefit from a seasonal workers scheme. An 11-month visa would help other sectors to benefit from EU labour for longer.Some commentators have suggested, however, that the government choose 11 months as, after 12 months, individuals would be counted in official immigration statistics. This would help the proposed policy to appeal to Eurosceptic MPs.Jonathan Portes, professor of economics and public policy at King’s College London, said this was “a pretty transparent attempt to massage the immigration figures”, as these individuals would not be counted in the International Passenger Survey, which documents people arriving and leaving the UK each year.The EU approved the UK’s proposed withdrawal agreement this weekend, but this is still subject to a vote in the Commons on 12 December.The National Institute of Economic and Social Research released a study today that said the deal would leave the UK £100bn worse off by 2030 than if it had remained in the EU.last_img read more

Tolerance of Antarctic soil fungi to hydrocarbons

first_imgLittle is known about the effects of hydrocarbons and fuel oil on Antarctic filamentous fungi in the terrestrial Antarctic environment. Growth of fungi and bacteria from soils around Rothera Research Station (Adelaide Island, Antarctic Peninsula) was assessed in the presence of ten separate aromatic and aliphatic hydrocarbons [marine gas oil (MGO), dodecane, hexadecane, benzoic acid, p-hydroxybenzoic acid, toluene, phenol, biphenyl, naphthalene and m- and p-xylenes with ethylbenzene]. Aromatic hydrocarbons inhibited soil microbial growth more than aliphatic hydrocarbons. Soil microorganisms from a moss patch, where little previous impact or hydrocarbon contamination had occurred, were less tolerant of hydrocarbons than those from high impact sites. Fungal growth rates of Mollisia sp., Penicillium commune, Mortierella sp., Trichoderma koningii, Trichoderma sp. and Phoma herbarum were assessed in the presence of hydrocarbons. Generally, aromatic hydrocarbons inhibited or stopped hyphal extension, though growth rates increased with some aliphatic hydrocarbons. Hyphal dry weight measurements suggested that Mortierella sp. may be able to use dodecane as sole carbon and energy source. Hydrocarbon-degrading Antarctic fungi may have use in future hydrocarbon spill bioremediation.last_img read more

Homeless man in Ireland wins discrimination case against landlord

first_imgA court in the Republic of Ireland has ruled that a landlord discriminated against a homeless man by telling him that they would not accept Housing Assistance Payment (HAP – equivalent to the UK Local Housing Allowance).The discrimination case was the first from the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) on the “housing assistance ground” and has now been appealed to the country’s Circuit Court.The Equal Status Acts, were expanded in January 2016 to prohibit discrimination in the provision of accommodation based on a person’s eligibility for housing assistance. The man in this case, Damien Keogh, was a single man living in homeless accommodation that had been HAP-approved for a number of years.Mr Keogh inquired about an advertised vacancy for a one-room apartment, but was told by the landlord by email that “we do not accept HAP at the minute”.The WRC had held in Mr Keogh’s favour and the landlord was ordered to pay him the sum of €2,000.The landlord appealed the decision to the Circuit Court, where Mr Justice Raymond Groarke, president of the Circuit Court, upheld the decision in favour of Mr Keogh, who received support from the legal rights group FLAC.The landlord maintained that she did not have sufficient knowledge about the HAP scheme to participate in it.Mr Justice Groarke noted that although there was no mala fides in the appellant landlord’s action, lack of knowledge of the law is not a defence and that there was discrimination in Mr Keogh’s case.While the judge reduced the award from €2,000 to €1,000, he also awarded legal costs against the landlord in favour of Mr Keogh.Zoopla has recently announced plans to ban posts that refuse to take tenants on housing benefits.The Negotiator would like to hear your views – e: [email protected] Benefit tenants landlord fined for banning tenant NO DSS BBC Panorama March 21, 2019The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?
