Lincoln city council approves plans for largest solar farm in state of Nebraska

first_imgLincoln city council approves plans for largest solar farm in state of Nebraska FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Lincoln Journal Star:The Lincoln City Council on Monday paved the way for a solar farm east of Lincoln that would be the largest in the state.Council members voted 6-0 to grant a special permit to Ranger Power, a New York-based company that wants to build a 230-megawatt solar farm on roughly 1,100 acres in an area bounded by 128th Street, 148th Street and O Street and Havelock Avenue.The project is massive by Nebraska standards. If built to its proposed size, it would be more than five times the size of all installed solar energy projects in the state.Ranger Power officials said they chose the area east of Lincoln because it is close to the state’s two largest cities and also because it has existing infrastructure — in the form of a nearby transformer owned by Lincoln Electric System.Supporters of the project noted that it will produce clean energy, have a minimal effect on the area and also produce revenue for participating landowners, as well as the county as a whole. At full buildout, it’s estimated the project will produce more than $800,000 in property taxes annually for Lancaster County and the Waverly school district.More: Council OKs solar project that would be state’s largestlast_img read more

Brazil’s Navy Conducts Largest Training Exercise Ever in Planalto Central Region

first_img Between October 19 and 30, Brazilian Navy Marines will perform a major training exercise titled Operation Formosa 2012 at the Navy’s Formosa campus in the state of Goiás. The goal of the operation is to maintain the readiness of the Marines’ resources, and represents the largest exercise performed by the Brazilian Navy. Operation Formosa 2012 involves approximately 2,200 troops, airplanes, combat vehicles, armored vehicles for troop transportation, Gecko amphibious vehicles, anti-car missiles, surface-to-air missiles, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and artillery, among other combat resources that are used in an integrated manner during military maneuvers. Amphibious operations, which are considered the most complex of all military operations, will also be simulated. In order to ensure as much realism as possible, all weapons will have live ammunition. This exercise is very important for the Marines, who, according to the National Defense Strategy, are the expeditionary force by excellence. Therefore, maintaining its readiness requires training in various operational environments, such as urban areas, jungle, riverside areas and savannahs. This displays the capability of the Brazilian Navy in protecting the Blue Amazon and defending the naval and port facilities, archipelagos and oceanic islands, besides ensuring their capability in international peace and humanitarian operations, as is the case of the Marine Operative Group currently present in Haiti and the deployment on board the UNIFIL Maritime Task Force (United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon). The fact that the forces are permanently ready has allowed the Brazilian Navy to respond expeditiously to an ample spectrum of crises, that vary from supporting of the state of Rio de Janeiro’s Public Security Organization in the occupation of several communities, to humanitarian assistance both, within national territory as well as internationally, as in the case of Chile, where a field hospital was built in less than 48 hours after the earthquake hit that country in 2010. On October 30th, an operational demonstration will provide a general overview of the exercise in addition to some of the Brazilian Navy’s and the Marines’ capabilities. On that occasion, in which civil and military authorities will be present, resources, such as the armored vehicles used during police operations in Rio de Janeiro, the field hospital and an arsenal of deployed artillery on land, will be displayed.

10 tips for vacationing on a budget

first_imgby: David DorionAh, vacation. It’s a time to wind down and reward yourself for all your hard work. But as you know, and even might fear, a vacation can be quite pricey. Avoid putting yourself into a financial bind by following the tips below designed to help you vacation on a budget.1. Avoid peak season.It’s no secret that as summer or holidays approach, travel costs, such as airfare and hotel lodging often go up in price. Consider taking your trip during an off-season month, such as September or October, as opposed to summer or the peak holiday months. The prices associated with your vacation may be considerably less, and better yet, your destination might be less crowded. All of this will help you travel on a budget.2. Consider alternative lodging locations.If your vacation takes you to a large city, it could be more cost effective to stay outside the city limits. The hotel rates, in some cases, can be much lower. Consider smaller hotel chains or bed and breakfast accommodations with fewer amenities to save money during your time off. continue reading » 21SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Matz lodges concerns over NCUA budget transparency bill

first_img 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz lodged concerns and objections about the bipartisan, NAFCU-backed H.R. 2287, the “NCUA Budget Transparency Act,” sponsored by Reps. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C., and Krysten Sinema, D-Ariz., in a letter to the bill sponsors Thursday.Matz, in a three-page letter, said the bill, which she noted would require the agency to hold “pre-decisional” public budgetary hearings, would undermine the agency’s independence and would be without precedent. “No other financial institutions regulator is subjected to annual budget hearing requirements,” she wrote.“I firmly believe it is of utmost importance to avoid even the appearance of regulatory capture in the budget-making process,” Matz stated. She added that credit unions’ payments to fund the budget “amount to less than 0.025 percent of credit union assets.”H.R. 2287, introduced in May, was one of several bills addressed in a House Financial Services subcommittee hearing Thursday.

How DE Training changes lives: Jim Morrell & Brandi Stankovic

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Four times a year, credit union professionals from around the U.S., and some from around the globe, gather for a one week credit union “boot-camp” filled with lessons in principles, philosophy, history and more. In fact, we just completed the first training of the year with 45 new Credit Union Development Educators (CUDEs)!While many aspects of what goes on during Credit Union Development Education (DE) Training remain unknown to those who haven’t joined the secret circle, there is one aspect of the training that is well known – it is life changing. Often times this experience helps credit union professionals to discover and ignite a passion they didn’t know existed, which ultimately benefits their credit union career and the credit union movement as a whole.To highlight the incredible successes that can come from attending DE Training, we have started capturing the stories of past attendees and learning how DE has changed their life. continue reading »last_img read more

Giuliani may be digging Trump even deeper into trouble

first_imgCategories: Editorial, OpinionYou know it’s gotten bad when the president is required to do damage control for his lawyer, but that’s exactly what happened Thursday morning, when Donald Trump took to Twitter to explain himself, after Rudolph Giuliani admitted on FoxNews that Trump repaid $130,000 in hush money to Stormy Daniels.In suspiciously non-capitalized prose, Trump (or his ghost-tweeter) basically confirmed the story and said it was no biggie.But Giuliani’s other admission – delivered during his interview with Sean Hannity on Wednesday night – may be more important and damning.Giuliani conceded in an offhand way that Trump fired FBI Director James Comey because Comey failed to do Trump’s bidding and publicly declare that Trump was not under investigation.Here’s what Giuliani said:“He fired Comey because Comey would not, among other things, say that he wasn’t a target of the investigation,” Giuliani said. “He’s entitled to that. Hillary Clinton got that, and he couldn’t get that. So he fired him, and he said, ‘I’m free of this guy.’”In saying this, Giuliani appears to have thought that he was exonerating Trump.Giuliani was saying Trump didn’t fire Comey to obstruct the investigation into Trump campaign collusion with Russian sabotage of our election, but rather because Comey didn’t publicly clear him, which Giuliani believesTrump was “entitled to.” But this undercuts the leading public rationale that Trump offered for firing Comey.The White House has cited Comey’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation as the fake pretext for the firing.But now Trump’s own lawyer has confirmed on national television that the rationale was directly related to the Russia investigation.“It seems that Giuliani is trying to suggest that Trump did not obstruct justice when he fired Comey,” Barbara McQuade, a former prosecutor and current law professor at the University of Michigan, told me. And Mueller’s team may take an interest in this, McQuade told me: “This will cause them to review what they’ve done already and will inform their questions going forward.”To be clear, it still remains very unlikely that Mueller will try to indict Trump for obstruction of justice.But Mueller is expected to produce a report on the obstruction question, and his findings on it may be made public in some form.Whether or not Trump can be held criminally liable for obstruction, Mueller may end up documenting a pattern of very serious misconduct, which could shed new light on just how far Trump went to shield himself and his cronies from accountability, something that could have serious implications for our politics and for our efforts to restore the integrity of the rule of law amid Trump’s nonstop degradation of it.Giuliani has inadvertently lent more salience to this whole line of inquiry.Greg Sargent writes The Plum Line blog, a reported opinion blog with a liberal perspective.More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motorists What’s more, we know that a short time later, Trump personally asked two other top intelligence officials to publicly confirm what Comey would not.As The Washington Post reported, they both refused the request, which they deemed “inappropriate.” Trump subsequently went further, prodding them to directly intervene with Comey to curtail the investigation, which they also refused to do.We also know that Mueller is looking at all of this conduct.To establish obstruction, Mueller needs to show that in trying to hamstring or derail the probe, Trump acted with “corrupt intent,” say, to protect himself and his top officials from scrutiny.The leaked questions from Mueller show that he wants to ask Trump about that very same March 30 call with Comey in which he seems to have demanded that Comey publicly exonerate him.Mueller wants to probe Trump’s state of mind about all of this, including whether Comey’s public confirmation of the investigation – which angered Trump – helped precipitate Comey’s firing.Giuliani has now publicly confirmed that all that did indeed figure into Trump’s rationale. “But in fact he may just be building the case against him. Even demanding that Comey make a public statement that Trump is not under investigation would itself potentially be obstruction of justice.”McQuade added that insisting on such a public statement constitutes “interfering in the investigation.”Here’s a key bit of context showing why Giuliani’s admission could be important:Remember that Trump himself reportedly made this same demand of Comey – and that special counsel Robert Mueller III appears to be examining that demand as part of his effort to determine whether Trump obstructed justice.After Comey publicly confirmed the existence of the probe in March of 2017, Trump told Comey in a March 30 phone call that he wanted Comey to confirm he was not personally under investigation, to publicly “lift the cloud” that the probe had cast over his presidency, according to Comey’s memos. Comey detailed in the memos that he didn’t want to do this, because the status of the probe could change (as it ultimately did), and he wanted to avoid having to publicly confirm such a change later.Comey took this exchange seriously enough to report it to his superiors at the Justice Department.last_img read more

Wimbledon cancelled due to coronavirus pandemic

first_imgTopics : The Wimbledon tennis championships were cancelled for the first time since World War Two as the coronavirus pandemic wiped another blue-riband sports event off the calendar on Wednesday.While the decision had looked inevitable for some time, since the virtual shutdown of world sport and the postponement of the Tokyo Olympics, Wimbledon had been one of the few events not to have been officially cancelled or postponed.But after emergency talks between the various stakeholders over the last few days, the All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) announced that it was impossible for the grasscourt Grand Slam, scheduled for June 29-July 12, to take place. “It is with great regret that the main board of the All England Club and the committee of management of the championships have today decided that The Championships 2020 will be cancelled due to public health concerns linked to the coronavirus epidemic,” the AELTC said in a statement https://www.wimbledon.com/en_GB/news/articles/2020-04-01/cancellation_of_the_championships_2020.html.”The 134th Championships will instead be staged from June 28 to July 11, 2021.”The men’s ATP Tour and women’s WTA Tour are already suspended until at least June 7 but it looks extremely unlikely that any professional tennis will be possible throughout the summer as the pandemic worsens in Europe and the USBritain’s death toll from the virus reached 2,352 on Wednesday, according to NHS figures.center_img The French Open, originally due to be held from May 24-June 7 has been postponed and controversially rescheduled by the French tennis federation for Sept. 20-Oct. 4, shortly after the end of the US Open.Former Wimbledon champion Amelie Mauresmo doubts whether either tournament will be played though.”I think we’re going to have to draw a line under the 2020 tennis season,” Mauresmo said on Twitter this week.”International circuit = players of all nationalities plus management, spectators and people from the 4 corners of the world who bring these events to life. No vaccine = no tennis.”Unlike the French Open which is played on clay, Wimbledon’s scope for re-arranging the start date was extremely limited.While Centre Court and Court One boast a roof, playing elite level tennis outside on grass would have been extremely challenging in late summer or autumn with a lack of light and problems caused by dew forming on the surface late in the day.Shortening the format of the tournament, or playing behind closed doors, would also have proved extremely unpopular with the players.Wimbledon has been held every year since 1946 after a six-year hiatus because the country was at war.last_img read more
