Greens legislate to keep Snowy clean

first_imgGreens legislate to keep Snowy clean The Australian Greens MPsGreens Leader, Adam Bandt, will introduce a Bill into the House of Representatives that would prevent the government using the Snowy Hydro group to build new gas-fired power stations. The Bill will be seconded by Independent MP, Zali Steggall.Energy and Emissions Reduction Minister Angus Taylor has given the NSW market until the end of April 2021 to make final investment decisions on 1000 MW of new dispatchable capacity to replace Liddell or he says he will direct Snowy Hydro to invest in a new gas-fired power station in the Hunter.The Greens’ bill would mean Snowy Hydro could not:Develop or construct, or be involved in the development or construction, of new fossil fuel‑based electricity generation capacity;Acquire, purchase or otherwise invest in, or be involved in acquiring, purchasing or investing in, new fossil fuel‑based electricity generation capacity;Operate, or be involved in the operation of, new fossil fuel‑based electricity generation capacityGreens Leader Adam Bandt said:“Angus Taylor wants to use Snowy Hydro to implement his pro-gas agenda, turning an Australian icon into a polluter and saddling it with a giant white elephant.“Public money should not be used to make the climate crisis worse.“Angus Taylor has invented figures to back up his Snowy Hydro threat, imposing a completely arbitrary 1000 MW target when the Liddell Taskforce Report made no such recommendation, the AEMO study for that Report identified a system need for only 215 MW by 2025 and AEMO has since reduced that gap to 154 MW.”Since the Minister issued his threat, a number of major NSW battery announcements have been made:Origin Energy (700 MW)CEP Energy (1200 MW)Neoen (500 MW)“Despite all the proposed new investment in NSW, the Minister is still keeping his threat alive, so we must take direct legislative action to prevent the Minister and Snowy Hydro from proceeding with a new gas-fired power station,” Bandt said.“The IPCC and the IEA have both been clear that there is no more space for new fossil fuel infrastructure if we hope to meet the temperature goals of the Paris Agreement.”Since the sale of the NSW and Victorian shares of Snowy Hydro to the Commonwealth in 2018, Snowy Hydro Ltd is a wholly-owned Commonwealth company.The Frontier Economics study for the Liddell Taskforce Report did not model the price impact of such a large capacity, so there is no modelling basis for the Minister’s target. A study by Reputex found that replacing Liddell’s capacity with renewables and batteries would be cheaper than with gas. /Public Release.

CU-Boulder's Center Of The American West Offers Free Music At Chautauqua Aug. 12-13

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Editors: Photographs of musicians are available in print and digital versions by calling (303) 492-4007. A complete schedule of events is posted at www.centerwest.org/music. Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Tish Hinojosa and the Hot Club of Cowtown will be among the musicians giving free performances on the lawn of Boulder’s historic Chautauqua Park on Saturday, Aug. 12, as part of a conference titled “Listening to the West: Music in the Soul of a Region.” The conference and music festival celebrating the cultural diversity of the American West through its music will be offered Aug. 10-13 by the Center of the American West at the University of Colorado at Boulder. “It’s a wonderful thing to learn while your toes are tapping at the same time,” said Patricia Nelson Limerick, CU-Boulder history professor and chair of the Center of the American West. “It rarely happens in the lecture hall.” Other musicians performing at Chautauqua Park from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. will include Antonia Apodaca, Calvin Standing Bear, Santiago Jimenez, Jesus “Chuy” Martinez and Brenda Romero. On Sunday, July 13, the Heavenly Echoes and the Praze Band with the Victory Voices will perform gospel music at Chautauqua Park from 10 a.m. to noon. The complete CU-Boulder conference will run Aug. 10-13 and will include panel discussions on such topics as “Music as the Best Route to Understanding the West,” “Cultural Interweaving” and “Westerness as Freedom and Limit.” The complete conference is $99 and the public is encouraged to attend. Discussants will include Limerick; Nick Forster of the national “e-town” radio show; musicologists Thomas Riis and Brenda Romero of the CU-Boulder College of Music; David Wrobel, a historian with expertise on American pop music; and Jose Limon, a professor of English, Mexican-American studies, and anthropology at the University of Texas at Austin. “Of all forms of human expression, music ranks at the top when it comes to crossing cultural borders and bridging human divisions,” Limerick said. “Music really does get past people’s defenses in a way that the written word may not.” Through engaging lectures, panel discussions and musical performances, the conference will address the musical traditions of American Indians, Hispanics, African Americans, cowboys, miners, laborers and protesters. The conference will address how music reflects and distills the essence of different cultures and how different musical styles have been borrowed and blended. “The friction and violence in the West are undeniable but the fact is that we have spent a lot of time listening to each other,” Limerick said. “The blending of a German accordion into Mexican border music is one example showing there is no particular ethnic membership requirement to enjoy any particular type of music.” In “Songs That Capture the West,” all panelists and attendees are invited to bring a recorded song to play or to perform live which for them captures a unique spirit of feeling about the West. In conjunction with the conference, the “e-town” radio show will be taped at Chautauqua Auditorium on Saturday, Aug. 12, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $11. The conference and festival is presented by the Scripps Howard Foundation and the Daily Camera. Additional sponsors include e-town, Colorado Chautauqua Association, Swallow Hill Music Association and CU-Boulder’s American Music Research Center. The music festival at Chautauqua Park is free and open to the public. Conference participants can receive one academic credit from CU-Boulder’s Division of Continuing Education for an additional $45. To register call Riis at (303) 492-7540. For more information contact the Center of the American West at (303) 735-3261, email [email protected] or visit the center’s Web site at www.centerwest.org.

CSJP Gives Inner-City Youth Second Chance at Life

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail “I was the devil,” Nicholas Miller says, eliciting gasps from the crowd, as he gives a poignant synopsis of his past as a ‘corner boy’ in an inner-city community in Kingston.The hushed, attentive audience, gathered at the Fletchers Land community centre in Kingston, is enthralled, as Nicholas describes the “the dark place” he was in, committing crimes and creating mayhem.But today, the slight-framed youth professes to be a new man. “I found God.God mek me find CSJP (Community Security and Justice Programme). It changed me from a corner boy to somebody who everybody look up to,” he says.“I have a job now, at Charlie Smith High,” he tells residents, representatives of the CSJP, and other stakeholders, who attended the recent launch of the Real Man Things ‘Pon Di Corner’ programme at the community centre.“I have two kids with my baby-mother, and I am taking care of my responsibility, taking care of everything. The dark place is where I was, but mi deh inna CJSP now.mi have a lot of goals.a lot of goals,” Nicholas says to thunderous applause.Nicholas is just one example of an inner-city youth, who has experienced a “rebirth” and has been saved from a life of crime through the CJSP, and will be participating in the Real Man initiative.Utilising the popular ‘Real Man Things’ radio show, aired on Power 106 FM, as well as interactive sessions and workshops on inner-city streets, the initiative will serve to motivate young men and turn them way from a life of crime.Nicholas, a resident of Trench Town, is a member of a group of young men dubbed: ‘Men With A Message’ who, under the programme, will be trained and deployed as role models to corners, schools, clubs and sports teams to communicate the message of change to other young men contemplating a life of crime, who are vulnerable to recruitment, or who are living a life of crime.Christopher Hall is another shining testimony of how CJSP has helped to improve the quality of life of inner-city youth and give them a second chance at making meaningful contribution to family, community and country, even when things seem hopeless.Having been through a revolving door of facilities for delinquent children and imprisoned over 20 times, Christopher is now a changed man. “(I’ve) been out pon the road from (I was) nine years old.that’s about 1979.me come out of school from about 11 years old…that a primary school.me nuh know secondary school, a straight approved school and prison.I have so many names,” he relates.“But yuh see, at the end of the day, all a dat behind mi.right now, is change mi a talk bout, fi the other youth them in my community,” he says.Christopher uses the opportunity to extend his gratitude to the CJSP and its staff, for having worked with him, despite his challenging personality.“Them people deh cope wid mi foolishness, mi attitude, those type of things.at the end of the day, mi mek a step, .with the hope and the Real Man changes, mi nah guh stop,” is his impassioned assurance.The father of five says it takes hard work and dedication to fully overcome his challenges, but he is determined to endure. He has been giving back to his community, working with students at Kingston High School, and has assisted a number of inner city youth, convincing them to give up, or shun a life of crime.“Me see more than a dozen youth straighten up back and say that road is not good (for them).they say self praise is no recommendation, but mi ago praise myself at this moment,” he remarks.Christopher commends the nine other participants in the Pon Di Corner initiative, the CSJP, and all collaborating entities for coming on board and providing the necessary resources. “Remember, my days in prison and now is two different tings.prison harder now.Jamaica nice, our greatest enemy is the mind.you see from we can function and keep wi mind pon a level, everything nice,” he says emphatically.Host of Real Man Things, motivational speaker, and life coach, Kevin Wallen, is passionate about the need for change.“Every time I walk into a prison and me see mi bothers and sisters.it burn me.the first time I walked into Spanish Town prison and I saw three floors of able- bodied young men that were unable to do anything but wake up, fight, eat some food.when I saw that, it burn my heart.that cannot happen anymore. We have to stop it,” he implores.He says the programme will emphasise that “even though you’re born in a space where you’re surrounded by zinc fence, you don’t have the excuse fi kill people and tek whey dem own”.“Real Man Things mean that even though you born in a space where sometimes you’re hungry, and you can’t find the first dollar to buy something, it still doesn’t give you the right to hurt somebody else for their own that they work for,” he adds, noting that “real men” must take responsibility for their children and their families.Mr. Wallen says it is critical that at-risk youth hear the real examples of those, who have survived the struggles of the inner-city life and escaped the allure of crime, which is why the ‘Men with a Message,’ are so important.Real Man Things’ Pon Di Corner’ will begin airing on Power 106 FM at the end of this month. It will be instrumental in spreading the message of the CSJP, and the opportunities for engagement among communities and groups.Meanwhile, Programme Manager for the CSJP, Simeon Robinson, explains that through ‘Men with a Message’ as the main conduits, the CSJP and its partners, Churches Cooperative Credit Union (CCCU), and Communications and Business Solutions, as well as other private and public sector entities, will promote opportunities for change, through the provision of jobs, training, and internships for qualified inner-city youth.The CSJP, a programme of the Ministry of National Security, is in its second phase of funding from the Inter-American Development Bank, which will run until December 2013. Its main objectives are to prevent and reduce crime and violence, and to strengthen crime management capabilities through community action, and institutional strengthening of the Ministry level.The community action plank will see 28 communities in Kingston, St. Andrew,St. James and Westmoreland receiving extensive services designed to reduce various types of violence. It also includes activities to promote safe neighbourhoods and build multipurpose facilities for delivery of crime prevention services and to establish Community Justice Tribunals.

City invites locals to participate in Housing Element updates

first_imgHomeNewsCity CouncilCity invites locals to participate in Housing Element updates Nov. 13, 2020 at 6:00 amCity CouncilFeaturedNewsReal EstateCity invites locals to participate in Housing Element updatesBrennon Dixson7 months agoHousing Element updatesSanta Monica City Hall (File photo) Santa Monica city leaders have begun work on its Housing Element, an eight-year plan outlining how cities will meet affordable housing needs for the next decade and the public has one more opportunity to participate.The state of California has mandated Santa Monica build 9,000 new units between 2021 and 2029, almost doubling the requirements from last year.The quota is part of the Regional Housing Needs Assessment, which called on the Southern California region to plan for more than 1.3 million housing units.Under the new requirements, communities across the state are tasked with producing more market-rate and affordable housing than ever before in an effort to make a dent in a housing shortage that has sent the price of rents and mortgages soaring and thrown thousands of people onto the streets. Housing for low- and moderate-income renters will be particularly tough to produce in the quantities that the state needs, so Santa Monica officials will have to rethink how they produce affordable housing in the next decade.Cities are required to update their Housing Elements every eight years to document where and how a municipality intends to build affordable housing within its borders. And with Santa Monica’s previous eight year cycle Housing Element for the years 2013 – 2021 is coming to an end, Santa Monica is now planning for the next eight year cycle.Two Virtual Workshops were held Thursday to allow community members and city staff an opportunity to engage in dialogue, but those who missed the webinar have another chance to participate at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 14.Officials said Santa Monica did not appeal its quota due to restrictions on the grounds for an appeal and that failure to meet the goals (or pass a new Housing Element) would jeopardize the city’s ability to secure state funding and possibly incur additional fines.“The Housing Element Update project was launched in the late summer, early fall. Currently, we are in the initial outreach phase… and during this stage we want to hear from you,” Associate Planner Cary Fukui said, sharing residents can participate by reviewing the initial data and research, joining a technical working group or answering the first project questionnaire.Locals are also invited to attend a virtual study session with the Planning Commission that will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 18, as well as a study session with City Council on Tuesday, December 15, according to Fukui, who said, “Following that, our next milestone will be in March, where — after hearing from you and these technical working groups — we’ll start to develop concepts and options for public review.”There will likely be more webinars, questionnaires and study sessions after but Fukui said he expects staff to begin drafting the Housing Element Update sometime around June and the final adoption is expected in October.“We understand that this virtual outreach is very different from what our community is used to,” Fukui said, but staff is always available to be contacted with any questions related to the [email protected] :Housing Element updatesshare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentLaughing Matters – Kicking and ScreamingChanging Election TrendsYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall5 hours agoFeaturedNewsProtesting parents and Snapchat remain in disagreement over child protection policiesClara Harter16 hours agoFeaturedNewsDowntown grocery to become mixed use developmenteditor16 hours agoNewsBruised but unbowed, meme stock investors are back for moreAssociated Press16 hours agoNewsWedding boom is on in the US as vendors scramble to keep upAssociated Press16 hours agoNewsCouncil picks new City ManagerBrennon Dixson16 hours agolast_img read more

That’s down from the 50 percent share calculated a year ago, while the firm claims that new LTE networks are beginning to shoulder the data burden.“The region we studied this year has recently launched LTE, and we’re already seeing extreme users – especially those with dongles – starting to flock to 4G,” said study author and Arieso CTO, Dr. Michael Flanagan.“In many respects, this is great news – LTE networks are doing their job. But the consumption levels and patterns of LTE use are very different to what operators could expect from 3G,” he added.Arieso said the study data originates from “a tier-one European operator.”The study also found that, for the first time, smartphone users are consistently consuming more mobile data than tablet users. Out of the top ten most “voracious devices” (excluding dongles) six were smartphones, three tablets and one was a ‘phablet’. Tablet users placed fourth, eighth and ninth.“This is pretty counterintuitive, but it seems the capabilities of the newest smartphones – not tablets – are unleashing even greater user demand,” said Flanagan.

Golden Knights Celebrate a Homecoming in Whitefish

first_img Stay Connected with the Daily Roundup. Sign up for our newsletter and get the best of the Beacon delivered every day to your inbox. WHITEFISH — The Vegas Golden Knights, the NHL’s new franchise set to debut this season, toured the Rocky Mountains last week, introducing the team and some of its players to a prospective fan base.The road trip was a homecoming of sorts as Bill Foley and Murray Craven celebrated the team’s creation in this corner of Montana, where the franchise was formed in many ways.“It feels great to be here,” Foley said last week at a free youth event featuring two Golden Knights players at Stumptown Ice Den. “My vision was to make us the team of the Rockies and we are … We are Montana’s hockey team.”Though based in the Vegas desert, the Golden Knights have roots in the mountains of Montana.Over the last few years, Foley, the franchise’s owner, developed the finer points of his new professional sports team from his part-time home of Whitefish, where he spends his summer months managing a business empire that includes Whitefish Mountain Resort, Glacier Restaurant Group and Rock Creek Cattle Company, just a few of his many successful business interests.To build the expansion team, Foley enlisted the help of close friend and fellow Whitefish resident Murray Craven, a former NHL player who has lived here for several years and helped grow local hockey, including spearheading a fundraising effort a decade ago to enclose Stumptown Ice Den.Foley named Craven the Golden Knights’ vice president.“Murray is a very practical, smart guy. He’s a really good down-to-Earth guy and he’s a good friend,” Foley said. “He’s done a great job.”Among his duties, Craven oversaw the development of the Golden Knights’ practice facility in Vegas. It features some familiar local flavor — MacKenzie River Pizza, Grill and Pub, a flagship of the Glacier Restaurant Group, is the official restaurant at the facility and will serve as the team’s caterer.“It’s great exposure for MacKenzie,” said Foley, who predicted that a few stand-alone restaurants would also pop up in Vegas.Foley said he hopes Montana develops a close connection to the Knights. It will help that the team secured a deal with AT&T SportsNet to televise games across Montana, Nevada, Idaho, Wyoming and Utah and select areas in Arizona and California.“It was important to us to have that community outreach and come up here to Whitefish and bring a couple players,” Foley said, gesturing to Jake Bischoff and Alex Tuch, a pair of budding Golden Knights stars who participated in a clinic with local kids at Stumptown.“Next year when we come here, hopefully we will see all Golden Knights gear,” Foley said. “We will be in Whitefish every year because of the connection the team has to Whitefish.”Craven has an even bigger dream for Whitefish.“I’d like to have training camp here,” he said last week.As the season approaches and the Golden Knights prepare for their inaugural campaign, Craven is also excited to sit back in his home in Whitefish and watch hockey.“This summer has been extra chaotic,” he said. “At the same, I’ll be able to look back on the experience. Not many people get to live through that and put together a team from scratch.” Emaillast_img read more
