Both of these teams’ records also entail their RMAC seasons thus far as well.While the Trailblazers have been blessed to have three of their first four games of the season at home, the inverse has been true for the Yellow Jackets as three of their first four games have been on the road.Despite Black Hills State’s poor record, signal-caller Ryan Hommel has been solid, completing 60.8 percent of his passes on the season for 753 yards, four touchdowns and one interception.Hommel has also run for 202 yards and a pair of scores for the Yellow Jackets while Payten Gilmore is Black Hills State’s leading rusher thus far, running for 145 yards and a pair of scores.The leading receiver for the Yellow Jackets on the season is Eriq Swiftwater who has hauled in 24 grabs for 234 yards and two touchdowns.The problems for Black Hills State lie primarily on the defensive side of the ball as they have surrendered 472.2 yards per game with senior defensive back Drew Hebel’s two interceptions leading the Yellow Jackets.The Trailblazers have already made history this season as the 3-1 start is their best-ever mark in their history as an NCAA Division II member.This is the first of two consecutive road games for Dixie State as the Trailblazers will have their first non-conference game of the season October 6 at #3 Grand Valley State at Allendale, Mich.

Kinder Morgan achieves full commercial operations at Elba Liquefaction project

first_imgThe Elba Liquefaction project now has a total operational capacity of nearly 2.5 million tonnes per year of LNG Full commercial operations achieved at Elba Liquefaction project. (Credit: LEEROY Agency from Pixabay) Kinder Morgan and EIG Global Energy Partners have achieved full commercial operations at the nearly $2bn Elba Liquefaction project in Chatham County, Georgia, US.The milestone was met after their joint venture Elba Liquefaction Company (ELC) brought Unit 7 into commercial in-service. Unit 7 is the last of 10 movable modular liquefaction units of the project developed on the Elba Island.The Elba Liquefaction project now has a total operational capacity of nearly 2.5 million tonnes per year of LNG, which is equivalent to about 350 million cubic feet (MMcf) per day of natural gas.Originally operating as only a liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal, the Elba Island Liquefaction facility is now capable of producing LNG for export purposes.Kinder Morgan natural gas east region president Kimberly Watson said: “The development of this facility was a tremendous undertaking, and we are extremely pleased to have this project in service.“The team coordinated with our customer and local, state and federal agencies to put in service a new technology for modular liquefaction units. Its functionality as a bi-directional import/export facility makes it ideal for the changing flow patterns that can occur from time to time.”EIG Global Energy Partners, which has a 49% stake in ELC, owns the liquefaction trains and other ancillary equipment. Kinder Morgan, on the other hand, owns 100% of certain other facilities related to the project.The Elba Liquefaction project is supported by long-term contract with ShellThe Elba Liquefaction project is underpinned by a 20-year contract with Shell LNG, which had subscribed to its full liquefaction capacity.The project, which was announced in January 2013 by Kinder Morgan’s unit Southern Liquefaction and Royal Dutch Shell, broke ground in November 2016. In less than three years after that, the first of the 10 liquefaction units of the project was brought into commercial service.Prior to that in July 2015, Kinder Morgan said that it will acquire Shell’s 49% stake in ELC to become its full owner in a deal worth around $630m. Subsequently, in February 2017, Kinder Morgan sold a 49% stake in ELC to EIG Global Energy Partners for about $385m.last_img read more

Over £1000 of goods stolen from Wadham

first_imgThe college librarian has since sent an email to all students warning them not to leave their laptops unattended.The second year added, “the library staff now go round the library at regular intervals and note unattended laptops. They found nine the other day and put notes on them to warn the owners not to leave them. They are also investigating other ways to keep them safe.”Another student had her laptop and digital camera stolen from her room on the evening of the 1st of February.The student in question had left her room door unlocked and return to find her possessions had vanished.One first year linguist suggested that members of Wadham were too trusting, “people will often hold the door open for people they don’t know. The other day I gave astaircase code to someone I’d never met before – they looked like a student butin retrospect it was a silly thing to do.Wadham is a large college with lots of students living out, so it’s impossible to be able to recognise everyone. You don’t want to shut the door in someone’s face because it’s rude and they almost certainly have the right to be there – but sometimes they don’t.”The second year stressed the need for caution, “everyone thinks we are in a nice little bubble but we are in the middle of the city with a high crime rate. Anyone can walk into college.”Thames Valley Police are cooperating with college authorities as part of their investigation. But they urged students to stay aware of dangers, lock doors and windows and be vigilant on behalf of others.College authorities are studying CCTV footage in the hope of identifying the burglars. The police are also investigating the incidents.The college declined to comment on the burglaries or their security arrangements. Wadham College has been hit by a spate of thefts this week, with over £1,000 worth of goods stolen from students.One finalist had his camera, mp3 player and sunglasses taken from his room on the 28th of January.The door to his first floor room was locked, leading police to conclude that the thief must have entered through an unlatched window, accessible from a nearby ledge.But he said that the burglar had only taken items from one particular drawer, leaving him puzzled and unaware of the theft for some time.He said, “they left the rest of the room completely untouched and there were no signs that anyone had been in there.“I reported it to the college and one of porters called me later to check on details but apart from that I haven’t heard anything.”He was critical of college security, suggesting that, “a little bit of maintenance needs to be done” to improve it.A second year English student had her mobile stolen on 29th January. She said, “I spoke to the Dean, the porters and the police. The Dean was at first rather blasé, saying these things happen and students have to look after their property.“The head porter called me into his office yesterday though, sat me down, and wrote down a statement from me, word for word. It took bloody ages but it was worth it. It was automatically sent to the police for me.”Another student, Victoria Lupton, had her laptop stolen from the college library at lunchtime on 26th January.She admitted that people could be careless when leaving equipment around college saying, “people in Wadham are very lax about their possessions because everyone’s so trusting.“You have to use a Bod card to get into the library and there’s a lot of people around so people are happy to leave their laptops there. But it’s really easy to get into the college and the library by following someone.”She suggested that attitudes were changing but criticised the official response to her theft, “people are getting a lot more conscious about security, especially with their laptops. But the police weren’t very proactive; they didn’t even come and talk to me about it.”last_img read more

FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare Indy to consider $15.2M in bonds for downtown projectsIndianapolis officials on Monday will consider issuing bonds to contribute $15.2 million to two downtown development projects: the conversion of the city’s oldest African-American church into a hotel complex, and construction of a five-story apartment and retail development near the base of Massachusetts Avenue. In the larger of the two proposals, the committee would authorize issuing about $8 million in bonds for the $36 million hotel project. The plans call for two hotels to be housed in separate seven-story towers on the property. The five-story mixed-use project by the base of Massachusetts Avenue call for 126 apartments ranging in size from 553 square feet to 1,631 square feet; 20,000 square feet of retail; and 302 below-ground parking spaces. Senate bill would ban use of tax-exempt bonds for stadiumsSenators Cory Booker (D-NJ) and James Lankford (R-OK) introduced S. 1342, which would prohibit tax-exempt bonds from being used to finance professional sports stadiums. The bill would not prevent state and local governments from bidding and offering other economic incentives to sports teams. It mirrors H.R. 811 introduced by Rep. Steve Russell (R-OK) in March.center_img County entities did not owe duty under foreseeability analysisA southern Indiana county and its parks and recreation and health departments did not owe a duty to a man who contracted a deadly infection while at a county park. In July 2012, Waylon Abel was visiting West Boggs Park, which is jointly owned by Daviess and Martin counties, when he was exposed to an amoeba, contracted a waterborne brain infection known as primary amoebic meningoencephalitis and died from the infection. Waylon’s estate filed a complaint alleging negligence for failing to test the water in West Boggs Lake and warn the public about the amoeba. The Indiana Court of Appeals held “there is no designated evidence that the County or the Parks Board knew or by the exercise of reasonable care would have discovered the existence of the (amoeba)…and the County and Parks Board did not owe Abel a duty under this analysis.” Indy mulls taxi rule changes in era of Uber, LyftThe number of licensed cab drivers in Indianapolis and other cities throughout the state has dropped steadily since the entrance of ride-hailing services Lyft and Uber, and the remaining drivers and cab companies want help. Many Indiana cities impose a number of regulations on cab companies but relatively few rules on Lyft and Uber drivers, thanks largely a state law that allows ride-sharing services to operate without being subject to local ordinances regulating taxi cabs. IBJ’s Susan Orr reports that rather than find ways to impose more restrictions on Uber and Lyft, cities like Indianapolis are instead considering deregulating taxi cabs. read more


Paternity leave

first_imgOn 6 April 2010, new fathers were granted additional paternity leave and pay rights. They can now take up to six months off. So how is this supposed to work in practice and is it something you need to worry about now?The new ’Additional Paternity Leave Regulations 2010’ came into force on the back of the Work and Families Act 2010. So what rights do new fathers have?These Regulations allow new mothers to transfer the second six months of their maternity leave to the child’s father. Where this is done, he can claim Statutory Paternity Pay (SPP), currently paid at the rate of £124.88 per week, for any amount of time that she would have been entitled to Statutory Maternity Pay.In order for the father to exercise this right, the mother must have returned to work she cannot be continuing her own maternity leave. Also, the father cannot take it until the child is 20 weeks old. However, while the government has promised that provisions will be put in place so that employers and HMRC can make checks on any claims, it hasn’t yet said precisely how this will be done. It seems it will be down to the parents to “self-certify” that what they are claiming for is correct.Even though the regulations are in force, they only apply to new fathers where the expected birth of a child falls on, or after, 3 April 2011, which is nearly a year away.Those of you who paid close attention in biology classes will have noticed that any fathers who are currently awaiting the birth of a child won’t be able to use these regulations and neither will any others for a couple of months. Until then, existing statutory paternity leave and pay rights will continue unchanged up to 2 April 2011. At present, entitlement is a maximum of two weeks’ leave, paid at the rate of £124.88 per week. This can only be taken in one go, or in one-week blocks. There is no statutory right to take it as single days, although you can agree to this.Under these regulations, there is no small employer exemption. It will apply regardless of the number of employees. However, as there is nearly a year until they have any impact, there is no need for you to panic about them as yetlast_img read more

Pump prices could go up and down for weeks to come

There’s no rush to fill your tank today or tomorrow.”DeHaan says oil refineries that were shut down in Texas last week because of the cold weather are getting back to their normal operations, which helps the price of gas go down in the short-term.Some analysts have predicted that gas prices could reach as high as $3 per gallon by Memorial Day.“That’s in the realm of possibility. It’s more about probability. For us to get $3 per gallon, we would have to see no action from OPEC. They are meeting next week to discuss oil production numbers. There also has been some chatter that Russia and Saudi Arabia are looking to boost oil production. That would keep $3 per gallon at bay, at least for the time being,” said DeHaan.Gas could get to $3 if no one increases oil production by summer.GasBuddy said Monday that the average price for gas across Indiana is $2.63, which is an increase of 16 cents from where it was this time last week.

Odds & Ends: Matthew Morrison Cuts Loose at Footloose Reunion & More

first_img View Comments Here’s a quick roundup of stories you may have missed today. Matty Fresh Cuts LooseHe may be a leading man now, but Matthew Morrison still knows how to cut loose like a real Broadway hoofer. The Audience Choice Award winner made a surprise appearance at the late performance of the joyful original cast reunion of Footloose at Feinstein’s/54 Below on January 12. After finishing one of his final shows in Finding Neverland (he leaves the tuner on January 24), Morrison headed uptown to watch his friends from the 1998 musical that marked his Main Stem debut in the chorus from the darkness of the club’s bar. But as Broadway phenom Orfeh tore up the place with a rousing “Let’s Hear It for the Boy,” and two original ensemble members in the audience, Kristen Leigh Gorski and Serena Soffer, leapt to their feet to recreate some of the show’s energetic choreography, Morrison had to get in on the fun. The artist formerly known as Matty Fresh threw himself into the moves between Gorski and Soffer and showed the entire enthusiastic crowd that he’s still got it. Let’s hear it for the boy indeed!Richard Libertini Dead at 82Richard Libertini, a character actor of both stage and screen, died on January 7, aged 82, at his home in Venice, California.

Organic weed, disease control

first_imgDiseases and weeds can be very limiting factors in growing quality home vegetables, especially when it comes to growing organically. Prevention is the key to coping with these problems. To keep your garden disease and weed free, follow these tips from University of Georgia Cooperative Extension experts: Select resistant varieties of vegetable plants whenever possible. These plants are bred to provide a level of resistance to many common diseases and other problems like nematodes.Rotate crops each year, even if you only have a small garden. By moving plants each year to a slightly different location, you help protect your plants. Rotating crops helps prevent buildup of organisms in one place. It can also help starve out a damaging disease or organism.Control competition from weeds by using mulch and weed barriers. Weeds will compete for vital moisture and nutrients and can severely stunt the growth of vegetables. Newspaper layered three sheets thick makes an effective weed barrier. Placed around plants, it suppresses weed growth, helps maintain moisture and provides organic material as it breaks down.Think clean. Sanitation is an important tool to the organic gardener. Destruction of weeds or other plants along with the elimination of diseased plants is vital to maintaining a healthy garden. Avoid using tobacco products while working in the garden as they can transmit viruses. Only go in the garden after the foliage has dried in the morning to avoid spreading potential disease spores.And remember, most organic principles are nothing more than following sound management practices and paying attention to detail.last_img read more

Tanoto Foundation hands out COVID-19 aid to disabled people

first_img“We understand that people with disabilities are among those who are bearing the brunt of the outbreak. Some rely on jobs that require them to have direct interaction with their customers, such as massage therapists and barbers. They have definitely lost income as they could not do their jobs owing to the social distancing policy during the PSBB,” Tanoto Foundation communications director Haviez Gautama said, referring to the government’s large-scale social restrictions (PSBB).“In our view, they are in dire need of a helping hand,” Haviez said. So far, at least 20 regencies, municipalities and provinces have imposed the mobility restrictions since their inception in Jakarta on April 10.Last month, the foundation donated millions of pieces of personal protective equipment (PPEs) to support medical workers handling patients with COVID-19 in response to a shortage of such gear. Read also: Tanoto Foundation donates protective gear for health workersThe Post’s chief editor lauded the donation, saying it came at a time when the government and local administrations had also been providing aid in the form of cash and staple food. “The donation is important to fill gaps in the distribution of social aid amid reports of some problems,” Nezar said. The Post reported early last week that some citizens who have lost their jobs could not access government aid, while others were receiving double.Meanwhile, The Jakarta Post Foundation chairman Bambang Trisno Sejati said part of the donation would be distributed to disabled people living at the leper colony near the Sitanala Hospital in Neglasari, Tangerang, Banten. The hospital used to solely treat leprosy, as its outpatients chose to settle in the area since the 1980s rather than return to their hometowns, either for the sake of treatment or to avoid discrimination.Another part of the donation would be handed to people with disabilities in Bekasi, West Java.“Apparently, people with disabilities need extra support from the government and community during this pandemic, as we don’t know when it will end,” Bambang asserted. In a statement released on May 6 in support of a UN study on people with disabilities, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called on governments around the world to specifically take into account the billions of people with disabilities in their response to the COVID-19 pandemic.Read also: Public donations for COVID-19 task force in Indonesia top Rp 66.5b”Even under normal circumstances, persons with disabilities are less likely to access education, health care and income opportunities or participate in the community,” Guterres said. “The pandemic is intensifying these inequalities — and producing new threats,” he said. On Sunday, the Health Ministry announced 59 more COVID-19 deaths, the highest one-day figure in over a month following weeks of relatively low official numbers of daily deaths. The previous highest daily increase in COVID-19 deaths was recorded on April 14, with 60 deaths. The number of COVID-19 positive cases rose by 489 to 17,514. The number of recoveries increased by 218 cases to 4,129 patients, while deaths jumped by 59 cases to 1,148, according to the ministry’s disease control and prevention director general, Achmad Yurianto.
