Michigans new attorney general to review pipeline deal

first_imgLANSING, Mich. — Michigan’s new governor and attorney general moved quickly Wednesday to review the legality of a contentious state deal to run an oil pipeline beneath a crucial section of the Great Lakes.Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced her request for a legal opinion from Attorney General Dana Nessel, a Democrat who welcomed the opportunity and expressed concern with a law that facilitated the agreement between the state and Canadian pipeline company Enbridge. Such opinions, while not the same as legal rulings, are considered to bind state agencies unless reversed by a court. Both Whitmer and Nessel had questioned the deal before taking office Tuesday.The Republican-led Legislature and GOP former Gov. Rick Snyder rushed to enact the law after Whitmer was elected in November. The new Mackinac Straits Corridor Authority then quickly approved the proposal to drill a tunnel through bedrock up to 100 feet (30.4 metres) below the more than 4-mile-wide (6.4 kilometre) channel that links Lakes Huron and Michigan. A new segment of pipeline would extend through the tunnel, replacing twin pipes that have lain along the lake bed since 1953. They are part of Enbridge’s Line 5, which carries crude oil and natural gas liquids used in propane from Superior, Wisconsin, through northern Michigan to refineries in Sarnia, Ontario.“There are serious and significant concerns regarding (Public Act) 359, which the previous governor and legislature initiated and passed without the care and caution one would expect for an issue that will have a monumental impact on our state,” Nessel said in a statement.Whitmer said resolving any legal uncertainty over the law, the Mackinac Straits Corridor Authority and the panel’s speedy approval of the agreement “is necessary to assure that we can take all action necessary to protect the Great Lakes, protect our drinking water and protect Michigan jobs.”Line 5 has drawn fierce criticism in recent years from environmental groups, native tribes and tourism-related businesses fearful of a rupture that, according to worst-case scenarios outlined by university researchers, could pollute hundreds of miles of Great Lakes shoreline.Enbridge has steadfastly defended the pipelines, contending they are in sound condition and could last indefinitely. But with public pressure mounting amid reports of gaps in protective coating and dents from a ship anchor strike in April, the company embraced the tunnel option.Whitmer asked Nessel six legal questions, including whether a requirement that authority members serve six years or more violates a constitutional four-year limit for newly created commissions. She also wants to know whether the new law improperly made changes to a 1952 law.David Eggert, The Associated Presslast_img read more

The best player in the world, under pressure that would break lesser men, appears to be using it somehow to make himself even better. LeBron James’s NBA Finals performance so far is the kind of thing we like to dream great athletes can do.Unfortunately, he’s probably going to lose.Monday on FiveThirtyEight, my colleague Neil Paine discussed how both James’s basic and advanced stats point to his being one of the all-time great finals series. On the mothersite, Kevin Pelton argues that James should win the MVP based on WARP (wins above replacement player), and it seems that the idea that James should win the MVP even if the Cavs lose is getting popular.So I’d like to look at James’s production from a slightly different angle. Rather than just look at how James’s production stands on its own right, let’s see how much impact James has had on the series relative to everyone else — combined.Through the first five games, James has gathered an incredible 18 percent of all the points scored, assists dished and rebounds collected by anyone in this series. If that stands, it will be 1.1 percentage points higher than the next highest over the past 46 years (since they started having a finals MVP in 1969). Here are the top 20, plus James: Michael Jordan199116.28.824.315.6✔✔ Shaquille O’Neal200018.020.25.416.9✔✔ Michael Jordan199718.58.615.115.3✔✔ Michael Jordan199819.95.35.914.1✔✔ Kobe Bryant200916.97.121.314.9✔✔ The player closest to James who didn’t win the MVP was Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who had a 15.5 percent share in the 1974 finals. Abdul-Jabbar and the Milwaukee Bucks lost the finals that year to the Boston Celtics, and the MVP went to John Havlicek. The only person to win the finals MVP in a losing effort was Jerry West in 1969, and he happens to be right around the fringe where players any more dominant almost always get the MVP trophy.Meanwhile, regular-season MVP Stephen Curry — the most likely candidate to deny James (again) — presently has the second-highest share in the finals with 11.5 percent of all points, rebounds and assists. If it holds, this 6.5 percentage point gap between first and second would be the second-largest ever (since 1969):The only player with a greater than 4 percentage point gap who didn’t win the MVP was James last year, when the winner was Spurs breakout star and current Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard.In other words, not only has James been the most dominant player in these finals, he has also been one of the most dominant “most dominant” players in finals history.Of course dominating production isn’t necessarily the same as “value,” and I’ve dabbled in esoteric theories of value myself (like, say, how Dennis Rodman might have been more valuable than Michael Jordan).Still, this gap between James and most other finals MVPs — barring any substantial changes — is so wide that unless you rule out the defeated on principle, it will be hard to argue that he doesn’t belong in their company. read more

Partners in crime Diebler Lighty ease Turners burden

At times last year, the Ohio State men’s basketball team seemed to have one plan: get the ball to Evan Turner and get out of the way. This season, however, the Buckeyes appear to have discovered an alternative. The early emergence of David Lighty and Jon Diebler as viable scoring options has given OSU some much-needed versatility. “I’ve been saying all along we have the greatest wings in the country,” center Dallas Lauderdale said.While Lauderdale’s claim might be slightly hyperbolic, there is no denying the Buckeyes have ability on the perimeter.Lighty, who in his first two years at OSU was known more for his defensive prowess rather than his ability to score, is averaging 12.3 points per game this season and scored a career-high 22 in last week’s win over Lipscomb.Diebler is scoring nearly 16 points a game and leads the Big Ten in three-pointers made per game. If they continue to score at their current pace, it will remove a lot of pressure from Turner, who has been double, triple and even quadruple-teamed by opponents at times this season. With the Buckeyes’ hot shooting, Turner said the defense will have more to worry about.“Once I get past the three-point line, there was a second man coming and once I get in the paint there were three men coming,” Turner said. “If they’re going to do that, they’ll pick their poison.”Turner said he will simply take whatever the defense will give him.“If I’m open I’m going to take the shot; if I’m not I’m going to dish it off,” Turner said. “I just want to play and make sure my team wins.”However, the Buckeyes have already seen what can happen on a night when their shooters are struggling. In the first half of OSU’s loss to North Carolina on Nov. 19, the Buckeyes shot only 29 percent from the field, leaving them in an insurmountable 14-point hole at halftime. Diebler and sophomore William Buford headlined the shooting woes, going a combined 7-29 from the field. Though Diebler seems to have successfully escaped any potential slump, Buford is still struggling to find his shot. Buford is shooting 38 percent from the field, something that coach Thad Matta said needs to change in order for his team to be successful. “Will is a guy that, he obviously wants to play well,” Matta said. “But by the same token, Will likes to win and we need Will to play well in order for us to win.”Regardless of how much Buford or any of the other Buckeyes are contributing, the onus will fall on Turner to lead the way on the offensive end. Fortunately for OSU, Turner has had no trouble carrying the load. The Buckeye point guard is third in the Big Ten in scoring, and leads the conference in rebounds and assists — gaudy numbers that have earned him conference Player of the Week honors in each of the last three weeks.Turner knows that as he goes, so go the Buckeyes.“When the coach calls my number I try to do my best with it,” Turner said. “If my team needs a boost, I’m confident enough to give them a boost. If the game is close and we need scores, I’ve been doing that in the past and I plan on doing that in the future.” read more

Opinion Youve just won €175m in the euro millions dont buy the

first_img https://jrnl.ie/4504352 By Eoin McGee Share33 Tweet Email1 Wednesday 20 Feb 2019, 6:32 PM Short URL Feb 20th 2019, 6:32 PM Eoin McGee center_img 28,969 Views Opinion: You’ve just won €175m in the euro millions – don’t buy the yacht just yet ‘Research from Harvard has shown that money can, in fact, buy you happiness but not in the way you think’, writes Eoin McGee. THERE IS ONE fun question that lots of Irish people are asking themselves today – what would you do with all that money?It might seem a bit daunting or even as scary as hell, so just in case it happens, here is some straight up financial advice to make sure that you don’t make a mess of it. Firstly, the numbers. If you put €175 million in a bank account and got an interest rate of 0.25% – you would get an income before tax of €36,458 per month and you would not be eating into your money.If, however, you were a bit more clever about it and you invested it in a long-term investment portfolio, which generated 4% per annum, you could be looking at an income of around €583,333 per month or €7 million a year, again without touching your own dough.Tax is an issue so you need to decide who you want to share this money with.The Lotto frown on it, but if you are planning on giving big chunks of the money away, you need to get the people who you want to gift money to, to sign the ticket too.Because the people who sign the ticket don’t pay any tax on the money they get.But a word of warning, the amount of money you win is divided equally by all the people who have their name on the ticket.So you might want to think long and hard on whether or not you invite your brother-in-law to share in your big win.Your next steps are up to you – but my suggestion would be that whether or not you intend to keep working, do take some time off.Be resolute now that you are making no decision that costs more than €10,000 in the next eight weeks – ie until the dust settles a little. That means that you are not buying anything, clearing any debt, gifting money or donating to charity until the eight weeks is up and the euphoria and media interest have died down.When it comes to taking time off, you might want to do a staycation in Ireland and stay in a lovely suite in a nice hotel, or a villa in Europe, or maybe a private yacht in the Bahamas. But remember the €10,000 rule – don’t try to buy the yacht yet. You have a decision to make, but one thing that you have got in abundance now is time.You have plenty of time to sit back and think about what you want to do with your life now.Don’t rush that – remember this money will either make you or destroy you.People you haven’t heard from for years, who were gone from your life, will be back in touch. They may be genuinely wishing you well or they may be fishing for some cash. The problem is, particularly in the early days you, won’t be able to figure out who is who.You may get the feeling that everyone just wants a piece of your pot and nobody is interested in you anymore.This feeling is inevitable and, in time, you can get advice on a strategic plan about how to gift to people in your life and to the charities that are important to you. Make no decisions and no promises in the early days. If you have been happy in your life up to now this does not have to change, but it will if you don’t remember to keep doing the things you have always done that make you happy.I speak to clients who have suddenly come into a lot of money (usually they have won money, inherited money or sold their business). Once the dust settles, they all come out with the same things.Money bought them the ability to do what they want but time with the people important to them, having experiences that they enjoy, is what life is all about.Research from Harvard has shown that money can, in fact, buy you happiness but not in the way you think.They found that buying material objects for yourself makes little difference to your happiness levels, buying experiences like holidays or sporting events has more of a positive impact – but if you really want to buy happiness the best bang for your buck is to buy things for other people or gift money to a charity.It’s not me saying it – that is the findings of the Harvard research. Wouldn’t it be nice to have €175 million for yourself to test out that theory in practice?Eoin McGee is a financial planner and principal of Prosperous Financial Planning. He offered financial advice on two RTE TV shows recently, How to be Good With Money and This Crowded House.  Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 28 Comments last_img read more

After leave Kashmir advisory Air India caps fares for Srinagar

first_imgNew Delhi: Air India has capped fares of all its flights from Delhi to Srinagar and vice versa till August 15, a spokesperson for the airline said on Sunday. The revision in fares comes in view of the advisory issued on Friday directing tourists and Amarnath yatris to leave the Valley immediately citing security concerns. Speaking to ANI, Dhananjay Kumar said Air India flights from Srinagar to New Delhi will cost Rs. 6,715, while flights from New Delhi to Srinagar will cost Rs. 6,899. Also Read – Trinamool, BJP activists scuffle at Dilip Ghosh’s event Advertise With Us The Ministry of Civil Aviation has advised airlines to rein in surging airfares for pilgrims returning from Amarnath Yatra. Airfares for flights from Srinagar over the weekend shot up to abnormally high levels following the security advisory for tourists and pilgrims. For a one-way direct flight from Srinagar to Delhi, even low-cost airlines such as IndiGo, SpiceJet, GoAir and AirAsia charged between Rs 10,000 to Rs 22,000, according to travel portals, as against around Rs 3,000.

Other places like Amritsar, Chandigarh, and Jaipur also witnessed a jump in airfares ranging between Rs 10,000 to Rs 19,000. Web portals of several airlines with flights from Srinagar on Saturday and Sunday showed that virtually all seats were sold out. The advisory to Amarnath yatris was issued after it was announced in a joint press conference of the Army and police forces in Srinagar that weapons and ammunition were recovered in the Amarnath Yatra route. Advertise With Us They also said terrorists from Pakistan were planning to launch an attack on Amarnath Yatra pilgrims, based on credible inputs. In view of the additional rush of passengers, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) had on Friday asked Indian airlines to be prepared to operate extra flights to and from Srinagar to fly out Amarnath Yatris and tourists from the Valley. Soon after DGCA’s directions, airlines made announcements to give a full fee waiver on rescheduling/cancellation for all its flights to/from Srinagar.last_img read more

Using continual image guidance technology and computer controlled robotic mobility, the CyberKnife System automatically tracks, detects and corrects for tumor and patient movement in real-time throughout the treatment. This enables the CyberKnife System to deliver high-dose radiation with pinpoint precision, which minimizes damage to surrounding healthy tissue and eliminates the need for invasive head or body stabilization frames.The study, titled “Fractionated Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy in the Treatment of Primary, Recurrent, and Metastatic Lung Tumors,” was conducted at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) in Pittsburgh, and followed three patient populations over an average 12 month period: 1) patients with primary stage I nonsmall cell lung cancer, 2) patients whose cancer recurred after it was surgically removed, and 3) patients with metastatic tumors in the lung. All patients were treated on an outpatient basis with CyberKnife radiosurgery over a three-day period. These patients had limited treatment options because they were medically inoperable (unable to undergo surgery due to pre-existing medical conditions or prior surgery) or refused surgery.In the first year following treatment, control of tumor growth was achieved in 85 percent of primary cancer patients, 92 percent of recurrent lung cancer patients, and 62 percent of metastatic cancer patients during the first year of follow-up. The study noted that this is drastically different from response rates for radiation therapy in this patient population, which are typically associated with poor local control and survival rates ranging from 10 to 30 percent at five-year follow-up.The study also reported few of the complications or side effects that are typical with radiation or other more invasive treatments within the first 12 months of follow-up. In addition, unlike conventional radiation therapy that is typically delivered over four to six weeks, patients completed CyberKnife treatment in three short outpatient visits. “The CyberKnife System’s ability to noninvasively treat lung cancer with favorable local control rates and minimal toxicities make it an important tool in the fight against lung cancer,” said Dwight Heron, M.D., chairman of the radiation oncology department at UPMC Shadyside. “As demonstrated by our study, this is particularly important for patients who previously had few or no other options because it gives them a chance for a positive outcome while maintaining their quality of life.”UPMC treated all the study participants using the Synchrony Respiratory Tracking System, which is reportedly the only system in the world that can deliver beams that physically move in real-time with 3D tumor motion. The technology allows patients to breath normally throughout the treatment, while still achieving pinpoint precision and minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue. According to the study, Synchrony “can allow for reductions in planning target volume margins because of less movement uncertainty while maintaining the desired level of accuracy.”For more information: www.accuray.com.

200 pilots conveniently call in sick forcing ailing Air Berlin to scrap

first_img Share BERLIN — Bankrupt German airline Air Berlin says its existence is threatened by an apparent wildcat strike after 200 pilots called in sick on short notice Tuesday.The ailing carrier was forced to cancel more than 100 flights including trans-Atlantic connections, causing chaos at several German airports.The airline’s chief executive, Thomas Winkelmann, accused pilots of “playing with fire” as the cancelled flights would cost the company several million euros (dollars), making it less attractive to potential buyers.“A stable operation is an essential precondition for successful negotiations,” Winkelmann said. “This is the only way we can protect as many jobs as possible.”German media reported that the airline is in a dispute with pilots about the transfer of staff to a new owner.Air Berlin declared bankruptcy last month following years of losses and the decision of its biggest shareholder, Gulf airline Etihad, to cease payments. Bids to take over Air Berlin must be submitted by Friday.

Borghetti to integrate V Australia into Virgin Blue

first_imgVirgin Blue CEO John Borghetti plans to change the fortunes of the company’s loss making, long-haul offshoot V Australia by bringing it back under the direct control of the main airline group. Under the changes, Virgin Blue and V Australia will fall under a single brand which is expected to be announced shortly. The integration of the two airlines is said to be part of Virgin’s strategy to take on Qantas in the business travel market and reposition the company away from its budget carrier roots. Borghetti also outlined plans to increase his senior executive team from six to eight in a memo to staff yesterday.Virgin’s commercial chief Liz Savage will take on the combined roles of network and revenue management across the entire group. Next month her team will complete a review of Virgin’s entire international and domestic networks. As reported earlier this week, Borghetti has poached two of his former colleagues at Qantas, Will Owens and Jane McKeon. Qantas’ former head of government and international relations, Jane McKeon will be in control of government relations, while QF’s former head of pricing, Will Owens, will be head of yield management with Virgin. Keith Neate will stay on as chief financial officer and Richard Tanner will retain his position as human resources chief.Former Creative Holidays MD Justin Montgomery has also joined the Virgin Group as the head of sales (excluding Virgin Atlantic). Andrew David will be in charge of Group executive operations and V Australia’s general manager, Scott Swift will report directly to David. In a statement, Virgin Blue said that its new group executive for product and guest services, Martin Daley, will give customers “a seat at the table” among Virgin Blue’s executive ranks.Virgin Blue is expected to have a strong presence at the upcoming NTIA Awards next week, with John Borghetti also expected to be in attendance.

Fancy taking a spin along one of the worlds most

first_imgFancy taking a spin along one of the world’s most famous roads? Want to see the sights from behind the wheel of a shiny new holiday hire car?Whether you’re a full-on petrol-head, or you just prefer to save your energies for other pursuits – like shopping and dancing ‘til dawn – feel the freedom of the open road the next time you jet off. Here are 10 of the most iconic highways and byways from around the world for you to explore:1. Lombard Street, San Francisco, USAEnjoy every twist and turn on Lombard Street in San Francisco, the world’s most crooked lane. Stretching just one block between Hyde and Leavenworth streets, this small section of road contains eight hair pin bends down a pretty steep hill. Perhaps you better leave a drive out along here until after lunch? 3. Orchard Road, SingaporeLong gone are the fruit orchards that this famous neon street was named after; nowadays Orchard Road is Singapore’s premiere shopping destination. Beside designer boutiques and big brands, here’s where you’ll find high-end hotels and haute-cuisine. If shopping’s not your bag, pop in to the Istana, the official residence of the President of Singapore, on this glitzy thoroughfare. 7. Champs-Elysées, Paris, FranceThis wide avenue, with its neatly trimmed trees, luxury shops and cute curb-side cafés, is the place to go for a taste of Parisian chic. One immediately recognisable attraction along the Champs-Élysées is the Arc de Triomphe war memorial, dominating the skyline at the western end of the road. It’s a great ride by car, but if you prefer two wheels to four then visit during the last stage of the Tour de France when riders usually make six to eight lengths of this famous lane.

Route 66, Illinois, Missouri, New Mexico and Arizona, USAAmerica’s Main Street, also affectionately nicknamed Mother Road, Route 66 was actually removed from the United States Highway System in 1985 when it was replaced by the Interstate System. Nevertheless, the sections that remain in Illinois, Missouri, New Mexico and Arizona now form ‘Historic Route 66’ and still stand as a shrine to all things Americana. Make a stop at Lou Mitchell’s in Chicago for some cracking omelettes before you hit the road, or stop by Shea’s Gas Station Museum in Springfield, Illinois, to see a mass of road related memorabilia. 5. Abbey Road, London, UKCome together, and take a drive down Abbey Road in north London, home to the legendary Abbey Road Studios where the Beatles recorded their 11th album, titled ‘Abbey Road’. The famous photograph of the band on the zebra crossing was taken on the street outside of the studios. Join the fans who flock here all-year-round and recreate the famous pose. 10. Guoliang Tunnel Road, ChinaYou can’t go over it, you can’t go under it so you’ve got to go through it; this was clearly the logic of the 13 villagers from the remote village of Guoliang who pioneered the construction of this famous Tunnel Road in China’s Henan Province. Carved out of the Taihang Mountains, squeeze along this narrow 12ft wide pass, through rock, hugging the cliff edge for a pretty nail-biting ride. Ready for your next road trip?

From street magicians to the spectacular fountain shows, like the one outside the Bellagio, watch the madness unfold. You won’t even need to leave your ride to grab a burger, a soda refill or even a marriage, everything is drive-thru, from off- licences to wedding chapels. 9. The Stelvio Pass, ItalyOnce hailed by BBC’s Top Gear gurus as the pinnacle of motoring perfection, the Stelvio Pass runs through the mountains in northern Italy in the Eastern Alps.

Think bigger urge energy companies more infrastructure needed

first_imgENERGY companies active in the island’s exclusive economic zone urged the government on Thursday to think bigger, and cautioned that much needs to be done to improve existing infrastructures that support offshore drilling.A major grievance aired by the oil and gas corporations was the lack of adequate space at the harbours.Energy executives were speaking at the 6th Eastern Mediterranean Conference in Nicosia.Total, ENI and ExxonMobil have all been forced to congregate at the port in Limassol, as Larnaca is for the time being off limits.The government recently announced its intention to create a new harbour at Vasilikos, outside Limassol, citing a delivery timeline of 2023.But in the interim, energy companies need an alternative, said Alessandro Barberis, managing director for ENI Cyprus.For his part, Yves Grosjean, general manager of Total Cyprus, stressed the need for an oilfield services centre to be set up locally in the eastern Mediterranean, supporting drilling operations.Cyprus has the potential to become that hub, he added, although far more infrastructures would be required for that to happen.According to the Total official, the work done by oilfield services – environmental impact assessments, waste management, data crunching – accounts for about 80 per cent of all man-hours expended during the course of an offshore drilling operation.Chiming in, the head of ExxonMobil Cyprus Varnavas Theodosiou said the US company had initially asked to be based out of Larnaca harbour for its drilling in Block 10. However, they were not given permission and therefore had to set up shop at the port in Limassol, where space is limited.Another matter requiring attention is the red tape in securing all the permits for drilling. Theodosiou called for a one-stop shop where all the paperwork would be handled.Charles Ellinas, CEO of E-C Natural Hydrocarbons Co, sought to impress a sense of urgency for the construction in Cyprus of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility.The terminal would process the gas found in three reservoirs so far: Aphrodite, Calypso and, more recently, Glafcos.To these could be added the gas discovered in Israeli waters.The longer a decision is put off for an LNG plant, the harder it will get, Ellinas warned.And there also the matter of competition from Egypt as a regional gas hub. The neighbouring country is ahead in the game as it already possesses the infrastructures in place to process gas – two LNG plants, one in Damietta, the other at Idku.Experts speaking at the conference highlighted the rise in global demand for natural gas, with demand projected to grow by as much as 40 per cent over the next 20 years.You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityEarthquake coverage that comes with optionsCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’UndoArgaka mukhtar stops conservationists againUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
