Husky wants to build Saskatchewan oil pipeline replace one that leaked in

first_imgPRINCE ALBERT, Sask. – The company behind the 2016 oil spill that fouled the North Saskatchewan River and threatened the water supply of Prince Albert and other communities wants to build new pipelines to replace the structure that leaked.Husky Energy held an open house Wednesday in Prince Albert to discuss its proposal.Calgary-based Husky says its plan calls for the construction of two new pipelines to transport blended crude and condensate to Lloydminster from across the river.The pipelines would be located in the rural municipalities of Britannia, Eldon and Frenchman Butte.Travis Davies, a Husky Energy spokesman, says the new line would be bored in higher from the shore at the hilltops on each side to minimize the risk of ground shifting.He says Husky has also improved its operating procedures to insure problems are reported quickly.“I think that’s one of the reasons why we’re here,” Davies said.“We’re obviously quite a way downstream, but we are looking back to the impact we caused on the city at that point, and we want to talk about the things we’re doing differently.”The Husky spill caused more than 225,000 litres of diluted heavy oil to leak. About 40 per cent of the oil went into the river near Maidstone.The company was later charged with violating provincial and federal environmental laws and paid $5 million to the City of Prince Albert for their costs related to the spill. Court proceedings in the case are still ongoing.Husky has since apologized and said it accepts full responsibility for the spill.The pipeline was allowed to restart in October after being repaired and inspected.Davies said Husky learned a lot during the oil spill, and all of those lessons would be applied to future projects.“This is a much better project for a lot of reasons, better design, better steel, thicker steel, better technology, better management system (and) the sooner we can get this pipeline through, the sooner we can get off the other one.”More public consultation is planned on the project, but Davies said Husky hopes to start construction of the new pipeline in the fall.Once construction gets underway, the project should take 10 to 12 months to complete.Prince Albert Mayor Greg Dionne attended the open house and said the city supports the project.“It’s still the safer way, in my opinion, to do it and the biggest thing is that we’re dealing with the right company,” Dionne said.“We had an incident, as everyone knew. Why did we get through it? It’s just the positive way they responded.”Husky has another open house planned Thursday night in North Battleford.

NB town reclaims title of having what it says is worlds longest

first_imgSHEDIAC, N.B. – Residents of a small New Brunswick community that prides itself on its renowned lobster catches was basking in the glow of a restored, distinctly Maritime honour — creating what it says is the longest lobster roll in the world.People in Shediac, N.B., turned out in droves Wednesday evening to watch as a chef and volunteers stuffed the succulent meat into a lengthy loaf of bread in a bid to take back the longest-roll title from the town’s neighbour to the east.Edgar LeBlanc, president of the Shediac Lobster Festival, said the roll spanned the length of the local arena and measured about 68 metres — besting Charlottetown, P.E.I.’s record-breaking length of more than 61 metres last year.LeBlanc said he was pretty chuffed by the size of the roll, saying it would ramp up the “friendly rivalry” with Island chefs that has been going on for several years.“Well P.E.I., good luck,” he said with a laugh when asked if he had anything to say to his competitors.“The challenge is on and we’re now in the driver’s seat. We got the biggest lobster roll, so I give them a friendly competition to see if they’re going to beat Shediac again, and hopefully if they do we’ll see them again next year.”The roll took about two days to prepare and included hundreds of the red crustaceans that were mixed up into 180 pounds of savoury lobster meat.Chef Alain Bosse was responsible for baking the bread and whipping up the meat mixture, which included celery, green onion, chives, salt, pepper and mayonnaise.The Nova Scotia-based chef said it took 12.5 hours and 40 volunteers to cook the long loaf that snaked along tables set up in the arena and had to be connected without separations, under the Guinness Book of World Records rules.The bread lay on about five tables prior to going into the oven for 20 minutes per section. It then took about a half hour to stuff the meat into the roll.When it was all prepared, about 400 people were allowed in to watch as the roll was measured by the mayor, LeBlanc and Bosse, who sported a red cap bearing lobster claws.“They gathered in the arena and everybody cheered us on as we counted it out foot by foot,” Bosse said. “It was fun! And it was very rewarding after you’ve finished those 48 hours of long work.”The roll was then cut into about 450 pieces, to be eaten by people who had bought tickets. In an hour, it was completely gone.LeBlanc said the roll was delicious and that it was the talk of the town Thursday.“It was amazing!” he said. “Everywhere we go in Shediac, everybody’s talking about it…. Lobster is very important to the community.”Bosse said the event takes about six months of planning and was a lot of work, but represents a “friendly competition between the two cities” that involves the whole New Brunswick community.“It really is good clean fun — there’s no animosity here,” he said, laughing when he added that “we feel confident that with 20 extra feet, P.E.I. will need a longer building to (beat) it!”No one from the Island’s shellfish festival was available for comment.– By Alison Auld in Halifaxlast_img read more

Security Council calls on DR Congo rebels to disarm end child recruitment

21 December 2007Concerned at the worsening situation in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), where fighting has escalated between Government and renegade forces, the Security Council today demanded that all rebel groups lay down their arms and immediately stop recruiting children. Concerned at the worsening situation in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), where fighting has escalated between Government and renegade forces, the Security Council today demanded that all rebel groups lay down their arms and immediately stop recruiting children. Tens of thousands of people are on the move again in the province of North Kivu, where Government forces (FARDC) are clashing with troops loyal to dissident General Laurent Nkunda resulting in some of the worst fighting since the DRC civil war formally ended in 2003. The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) reports that since August, some 170,000 people have been forced out of their homes in North Kivu by the fighting. Over the last year, a mix of conflict, military build-up and spiralling lawlessness has displaced 400,000 people in the province. In addition, the UN peacekeeping mission in the DRC (known by its French acronym MONUC) reported recently that many of the estimated 8,500 former child soldiers who have been rescued by the UN and other humanitarian organizations since 2004 have been re-recruited in the last few months or used as sex slaves. The Council urged the Government to address the crisis “in a comprehensive way,” in a resolution adopted unanimously by the 15-member body that also extended the mandate of MONUC until 31 December 2008 with troop strength of up to 17,030 military personnel 760 military observers, 391 police personnel and 6 formed police units. More than 4,500 blue helmets serving with MONUC have been deployed to North Kivu in recent weeks to help ensure the defence of Goma, the provincial capital, and the key town of Saké. The Council requested MONUC “to attach the highest priority to addressing the crisis in the Kivus in all its dimensions, in particular through the protection of civilians.” In addition, it asked Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to report by next March on how MONUC could further support FARDC or take other measures in dealing with illegal foreign and Congolese armed forces. read more

Power regulator notes shortcomings in long term plans

The report discloses that due to planned plants not being built as per the timeline, unforeseen power procurement and change of power mix have resulted the increase in the average unit cost of electricity. In 2016, actual power purchases from oil based plants have increased by 6 times than planned for 2016.The report is available in the official website of PUCSL (www.pucsl.gov.lk) under highlights. (Colombo Gazette) This report analyses the situation of Country’s electricity supply, forecasted data, power plant schedule with the actual situation and how LCLTGEP’s prepared from the year 2006 to 2016 by the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB), the state utility has affected the electricity supply situation at various junctures. It added, that no generation plan that had been considered in this analysis has foreseen the present situation. Thus, the actual outcome has been way different from what was conceived in the past plans.The report describes how the shortcoming of implementation of LCLTGEP has affected the electricity supply of Sri Lanka and investment in the industry. Shortcoming of implementation of Sri Lanka’s Least cost Long-term Generation Expansion Plans (LCLTGEP) has resulted in cost overruns, load shedding, and unplanned power procurement in the past few years and these consequences are expected to be continued in the next few years if timely implementation of long term generation plan is not ensured, the Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL), the electricity sector regulator said in its latest report.The report “Electricity Supply 2020 and Beyond: Challenges and Recommendation” recommends short-term, medium-term and long-term solutions to ensure long-term energy security in a sustainable manner. “Uncertainty associated with base demand, the forecast is another noticeable feature, particularly since 2011 plan. However, CEB has identified this as a problem and is trying to improve the accuracy of base demand forecast by adopting new forecasting tools. Despite, the electricity demand is expected to be more stochastic in nature all over the world in the long run,” the report says. read more

Rwanda work amazes and changes group

first_imgLiberty Bible Church Pastor Larry Rounsley was amazed by the number of people he saw walking the streets.After three flights, two layovers, a night’s sleep and a Sunday morning church service, Rounsley found himself on roads that he said best the experience of the Indiana Jones ride in Disneyland. He was on a three-hour drive from Kigali — the capital of Rwanda — to the small town of Gisenyi and he could see masses of people out his window the entire time.Rounsley — with 21 other local people and one pastor from Idaho — returned from a 17-day mission trip to the small town near Rwanda’s western border on July 4. While there, the group helped build four classrooms, got a medical clinic into working order and saw the fruits of two years of charity work from the church and six others from across the country.Their goal: to help a fraction of those masses to get back on their feet.The whole thing started two years ago when Pastor Simon Pierre Rwaramba visited Liberty Bible Church in Salmon Creek to tell his story of surviving Rwanda’s 1994 genocide. After he spoke, “We knew we had to do something,” Rounsley said.The church signed up to work with the Ndengera Foundation, a community group that Rwaramba and his wife started to help children orphaned by the genocide and the AIDS epidemic. The foundation now operates the school and medical clinic.During the trip, the 23 split into smaller crews. One spent most of the time building the school rooms. The other spent the first half of the trip getting the clinic ready and the second half treating patients.last_img read more

UAA goes solar panel by panel

first_imgNine solar panels were installed on the Administration and Humanities Building on UAA’s campus on Nov. 7. The panels are expected to provide around 3 to 7 percent of the building’s power in the summer. (Photo by Samantha Davenport, Alaska Public Media – Anchorage)Anchorage may not get a lot of sun in the winter, but solar energy is becoming more popular around town. From the Anchorage Solar Building to the Alaska Aviation Museum’s solar tracking array, establishments are doing their part to go green. Several UAA students recently had nine solar panels installed on one of the university’s buildings. Even though it’s a small contribution to energy efficiency, they’re hoping it will have a larger impact over time.Listen nowAlexandria McLearen talks about the new solar panels like she’s describing a childhood dream come true. She’s been intrigued with solar panels since she did her first ever science project on solar energy as a kindergartner.“I literally have chills about it. I’m so excited,” McLearen said.McLearen is a member of the Green Fee Board — the campus organization that pushed to get the panels installed on the Administration and Humanities building.The Green Fee Board has funds to support projects proposed by students that demonstrate economic solutions to environmental problems. McLearen says she brought the solar panel idea to a previous student government president.“Students want sustainable energy, we want to move in the right direction,” McLearen said.The power generated by the solar panels go directly to the building. They’ll provide around 3 to 7 percent of the building’s power in the summer. That may not sound like a lot, but the Admin building is home to the office of the chancellor, student affairs, academic affairs, university advancement, administrative services and a number of classrooms.Heather Jesse is an economics student who worked alongside McLearen to complete the project. She says the Admin building wasn’t the team’s first choice.“We originally wanted it on Rasmuson [Hall], because it was more visibility for campus. We had them do a walk through, they told us that was not going to be optimal for generating the most solar, so we settled here, which turned out to be an even better place, I think,” Jesse said.Jesse is currently working on a monitoring and measuring system that will go online. Students will be able to see how much of the building’s power is being generated by the panels and how many kilowatts have been saved.There are no other solar panels currently installed at UAA. ML&P significantly increased the price of electricity last summer. Jesse hopes the solar panels will help even out the extra cost.“As an economics student, I’m super stoked that we’re going to be helping to lower the costs of tuition for students that we’re helping offset the increase in ML&P,” Jesse said.It costs around $1,000 per panel to have them installed and wired into the electric grid. McLearen and Jesse are optimistic that the Green Fee Board will eventually install more panels, but they are currently working on other sustainable projects. Jesse is in the process of drafting an initiative to install five more panels for the spring semester.last_img read more

Homebuyers Chase Jumbo Loans as Limits Near Expiration

first_img Recent news reports show homebuyers flocking to high-end properties to close rates for jumbo loan mortgages, even as Congress wavers on a proposed bill that would fix higher thresholds for federally insured mortgages ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô a prospect that makes some wonder whether banks are capable of filling in for withdrawing government entities “”Fannie Mae””:http://www.fanniemae.com/kb/index?page=home, “”Freddie Mac””:http://www.freddiemac.com/, and the “”Federal Housing Administration””:http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/federal_housing_administration (FHA).[IMAGE]On Saturday the “”_Wall Street Journal_””:http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304223804576446042270052566.html reported a surge in high-end purchases. The surge could jump to the highest in five years, according to the _Journal_, largely because public officials appear unlikely to keep limits at $729,750. In past years, Congress successively raised the limits from $418,000 to $625,500, where the jumbo loan ceiling will once again rest if lawmakers refuse to pass an extension. The limit-raises arrived during the throes of the Great Recession, which public officials tried to stymie by providing lenders and high-end homebuyers with incentives.Coupled with a recent “”Federal Housing Finance Agency””:http://www.fhfa.gov/ (FHFA) report, which holds that jumbo loans account for 5 to 13 percent of total mortgage loans originated this year, some wonder about the potential for fallout in the housing sector if the GSEs and FHA pull back. Shannon Faries, a business development manager at “”Harbor Lending””:http://harbor-lending.com/, questions the widespread notion that banks will step up to the jumbo loan challenge. When the limit changes “”go down, who is going to be making the loans from $625,000 and up?”” he asks. “”A lot of private lenders are not going to touch these loans.””[COLUMN_BREAK]Faries recalls the lack of a secondary market from his workplace in California, one of several jumbo-rich regions around the country that the FHFA estimates may feel the limit expiration pinch more intensely. He also dismisses the suggestion that private equity groups will rescue homebuyers with jumbo loans.””Until there is a larger secondary market,”” he says, “”there is not going to be any big expansion on the jumbo loan front or anyone to service these over the $625,000 mark. There is no lender that would hold a loan that amount without having someone to sell a jumbo loan to. No one will want these.””In testimony before the House Budget Committee in July, “”Federal Reserve””:http://www.federalreserve.gov/ Chairman Ben Bernanke placed considerably more confidence in the private sector and argued that the government to step back. “”I understand the private sector is taking at least a significant number of the jumbo mortgage market but at a higher cost,”” he said.Following his remarks, the “”National Association of Home Builders””:http://www.nahb.org/ (NAHB) released a report indicating that 250 counties with the highest jumbo mortgage loans also bear 59 percent of the nation’s housing stock.””The lower limits will place a constraint on home buying in high-cost housing markets, such as those along the coasts and in California,”” NAHB Chairman Bob Nielson, a Reno-based home builder, said in a statement. “”It is the last thing we need in a housing market that is still struggling to get back on its feet.””Scott Sheldon, a loan officer with “”Sonoma County Mortgages””:http://www.sonomacountymortgages.com/, fears the repercussions of a limit fallback in his California real estate market, which he says would buckle under new foreclosures as a result of crimped homeowners who once relied on federal insurance. Still, he says, “”I think they [Congress] are going to extend the loan limits and keep them in place the way they are. They’re going to shoot themselves in the foot├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├é┬ª [and] if they do that, there’s going to have to be some other stimulus for them to fill”” in the larger economy.If Congress passes on a limit extension, federal insurance thresholds for government-backed mortgages will fall from $729,750 to $625,500 on October 1.

Coach does the right things and calls the right plays.”To be fair, Brown is not nearly the surprise he probably should be. The 5-foot-11, 179-pound third-round pick out of Pittsburg State was a star throughout the offseason, seemingly getting open and making big catches on a daily basis. “We knew he had the capability right off the bat when he showed up,” said quarterback Drew Stanton. “The game comes to him a lot easier than most rookies. He understands B.A.’s offense, and he’s got a good package to try and get him in there and allow him to do what he does.”Sunday’s outburst was most certainly by design.“Well you know, Johnny is getting better and better and we felt like we could match him up on their safety some,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said of his rookie.
