Renewable energy– as HECI seeks authorisation from GEARegion One’s Hosororo Creek has been targeted by the Hinterland Electrification Company Incorporated (HECI) as the site for construction of a hydropower plant. Application for the requisite licence is currently before the Guyana Energy Agency (GEA).According to the gazetted notice, HECI wants the requisite licence to construct and operate a 20-kilowatt hydropower facility at Hosororo. According to the notice, the energy derived therefrom will be used to supply the Mabaruma Power Company.The notice also informs that “any person may, within 21 days of the first publication of this notice, lodge with the Chief Executive Officer of the Guyana Energy Agency a petition to the Minister, objecting to the grant of the licence.”Located in Guyana’s administrative area known as Region One, the Barima/Waini region, Hosororo has been touted as a tourist destination. It has a waterfall at which work on creating a hydropower facility to service nearby communities was carried out years ago.HECI is under the dominion of the Public Infrastructure Ministry (MPI). Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson has only recently provided updates on a number of multi-million-dollar hydro and solar power projects that had seemingly been gathering dust somewhere.Patterson has also spoken of a US$3.8 million solar farm, to be funded by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and constructed at Bartica, Region Seven. The minister has indicated that construction of this farm would be completed by the end of 2018.Meanwhile, the private developer of the Tumatumari hydro project has been given a deadline to reach financial closure with the project’s investors. By the time this deadline has arrived, all agreements are expected to have been signed and conditions met in order to allow for the dispensing of funds.Patterson has noted that if that developer — in this case the Tumatumari Hydro Inc — proves unable to meet the July month end deadline set by the state for financial closure to the project, Government would take over the project.In regard to the US$2 million Kato hydropower project, Patterson has said that funding has been secured for the project and work will commence when the weather permits.He has also spoken of securing funding from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) to establish photo-voltaic (PV) farms at Port Kaituma (US$1.8 million), Kwakwani (US$2.6 million) and Matthews Ridge (US$2 million).Renewable energy targetsPatterson has provided a breakdown of all the photo-voltaic solar systems they have been installed on Government buildings. Referring to President Granger’s March visit to India to attend the International Solar Alliance (ISA) Founding Conference and Solar Summit, he has said that now that Guyana is a member of this alliance, a line of credit of approximately US$15 million will be available to Guyana.While it has not as yet been allocated, Patterson noted that the idea is to provide funding to utility scale energy for indigenous villages to the tune of four megawatts.He revealed that the Ministry of Indigenous Peoples Affairs and the Ministry of Communities will identify these villages. All of this, according to Patterson, culminates in certain targets the Government is trying to meet in renewable energy installation.“So, by the end of 2018, we would have installed about five megawatts of renewable energy; and that’s a commendable feat, coming from 2015 with zero,” Patterson has indicated. “And then, by the end of 2020, when all these projects would have been completed, there would be 29 or 30 megawatts,” he expanded.“So we’re well on our way to achieving our target of trying to become as 100 per cent renewable energy-(powered) as (is) possible. So we have made progress, and we’re just about four or five per cent (completed) at the end of 2018, (but) we’ll triple that by the end of 2020,” Patterson had said.
There seems to be no pressure when Lackey stands in the center of the infield, surrounded by a stadium of fans. There is only an increase in intensity when the stakes are high and the challenge is the toughest. “He’s not scared at all,” catcher Mike Napoli said. “He wants that. He wants to be that big-game pitcher. He wants to be out there and be the one that can say he was there for that big game and took it home.” When the American League ERA title was there for the taking during his last start of the season last week, Lackey pitched seven shutout innings and took home the honor. When the Angels failed to clinch the division in their first two tries, Lackey shut down the Mariners on Sept. 23 and the champagne started flowing. Already with a successful start in Game 7 of the 2002 World Series on his resume, Lackey has built his big-game credentials. And he’s tough. After Oakland’s Jason Kendall charged Lackey on the mound last season, the next time Lackey faced the A’s it was pure vengeance. Lackey retired 27 consecutive batters, missing a perfect game only because he gave up a leadoff double. Lackey continues to brush aside those feelings of panic that can humble even the best of players. He has a 1.88 ERA in three previous Division Series outings (two starts). He has a 1-1 record and a 3.75 ERA in two American League Championship Series games. And there was the huge effort against the San Francisco Giants in the 2002 Series as a rookie. “I’ve been in enough (big games) that I know you can’t get too excited about it,” Lackey said. “You have to do what brought you here. You have to be able to execute pitches. You’ve got to get beyond all the flyovers and the pregame stuff. Once you get between the lines, you’ve got to make pitches.” His manager, Mike Scioscia, caught Orel Hershiser during the right-hander’s record-breaking 1988 season, so he knows a thing or two about outstanding starters. And he puts Lackey up there with the best of them. “(Lackey’s) one of the best competitors I’ve been around in 30-plus years,” Scioscia said. “And I think his ability to slow the game down on the mound has developed from the time he was a rookie to where he is now. He’s channeled his emotions into something that’s positive out there to get to the next pitch.” Experience figures to be a wash today in Game 1. Josh Beckett has big-time playoff and World Series credentials after pitching the Florida Marlins to the title in 2003. Beckett pitched a five-hit shutout to finish off the Yankees in Game 6 of that World Series. Lackey will use his World Series experience to gain any advantage he can. “It’s definitely something I can draw upon,” Lackey said. “I’ve pitched in a few playoff games and that’s obviously the biggest one. My mind-set in that game, when I was a rookie, was that I was coming up with a lot of veterans. I was just hoping to contribute. I wasn’t going to try to do too much.” Against Beckett, he figures to take on more responsibility. “He’s been in these games just like I have and done extremely well,” Lackey said. “I mean, throwing a shutout to win a World Series, it doesn’t get much better than that. He’s obviously got great stuff and it’s going to be a great challenge for us. I’m going to have to pitch well to give our guys a chance.” But as focused as Lackey can be, on occasion he can also appear distracted by his moods. When the Angels were in Boston last, Lackey was certain he would pitch against Beckett in the second game of a doubleheader that would have Cy Young implications. The matchup didn’t happen and a disappointed Lackey was crushed for seven runs (six earned) and 11 hits in four innings. It was just one of a number of rough starts against the Red Sox. So, many of the questions in Lackey’s interview session Tuesday centered around his 1-6 record and 6.27 ERA against the Red Sox in his career. He is 1-4 in Fenway Park with a 7.68 ERA. “They’ve obviously got a great lineup and a good team,” Lackey said. “But I’m not going to look too far into that and I’m certainly going to show up (today) and give it a run. I think we have a good team, too. And if I pitch up to my capabilities, I like my chances against pretty much anybody.” firstname.lastname@example.orgWant local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

By Doug Padilla STAFF WRITER BOSTON – If John Lackey was standing on a mound, it’s likely a roaring lion or a charging rhinoceros would not even earn a flinch. This guy needs a safari hat and an elephant gun since “Big Game” is the most appropriate tag for the right-hander, whose safe haven has been a hill of dirt 60 feet, 6 inches from home.
Both the House and Senate armed services committees plan to hold hearings on the matter. Hagee met with top lawmakers from those panels this week to bring them up to date on the investigation. “I can say that there are established facts that incidents of a very serious nature did take place,” Sen. John Warner, chairman of the Senate panel, said Thursday. He would not provide details or confirm reports that about 24 civilians were killed. He told reporters he had “no basis to believe” the military engaged in a cover-up. In the Haditha case, videotape aired by an Arab television station showed images purportedly taken in the aftermath of the encounter: a bloody bedroom floor, bullet holes in walls and bodies of women and children. An Iraqi human-rights group called for an investigation of what it described as another deadly mistake that had harmed civilians. On May 17, Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., a decorated former Marine, said Marine Corps officials told him the toll in the Haditha attack was far worse than originally reported and that U.S. troops killed innocent women and children “in cold blood.” He said nearly twice as many people were killed than first reported, maintaining that U.S. forces are “overstretched and overstressed” by the war in Iraq. Pentagon spokesman Eric Ruff said Friday that he believes the investigation is winding down, but he would not comment on what the evidence shows. Ruff would not characterize the extent of Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld’s concern about the matter, but said he is being kept apprised of the investigations. Ruff said he did not expect any announcements in the next few days.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

The incident, if confirmed, could be the most serious case of criminal misconduct by U.S. troops during three years of combat in Iraq. In an indication of how seriously the Marines consider it, their top officer, Gen. Michael W. Hagee, flew to Iraq on Thursday to reinforce the need to adhere to Marine values and standards of behavior and to avoid the use of excess force. A spokesman at Marine Corps headquarters in the Pentagon, Lt. Col. Scott Fazekas, declined to comment on the status of the investigation. He said no information would be provided until the probe was completed. According to a congressional aide, lawmakers were told in a briefing Thursday that it appears as many as two dozen civilians were killed in the episode at Haditha. And they were told the investigation will find that “it will be clear that this was not the result of an accident or a normal combat situation.” Another congressional official said lawmakers were told it would be about 30 days before a report would be issued by the investigating agency, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. WASHINGTON – Investigators believe that their criminal investigation into the deaths of about two dozen Iraqi civilians points toward a conclusion that Marines based at Camp Pendleton committed unprovoked killings, a senior defense official said Friday. The Marine Corps initially reported 15 deaths and said they were caused by a roadside bomb and an ensuing firefight with insurgents. A separate investigation is seeking to determine whether Marines lied to cover up the killings. The investigation involves members of Pendleton’s 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, according to Lt. Col. Sean D. Gibson, a Marine spokesman. The unit is known as the “Thundering Third.” The official, who discussed the matter on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the yet-to-be-completed investigation, said the evidence developed by investigators strongly indicates the killings last November in the insurgent-plagued city of Haditha in the western province of Anbar were unjustified.

The title terrier dog.A JUDGE has described as ‘appalling’ a student who left her dog to starve – while she went to live with her mother.Natalie McGranaghan appeared at Letterkenny District Court charged with cruelty to animals. DPSCA Inspector Kevin McGinley told Judge Paul Kelly that he went to McGranaghan’s rented home at Leitir Ard, Letterkenny, on March 12 last year after reports a dog had been abandoned there.The flat in which the dog was found.Inspector McGinley said he could hear a dog inside the property but could not see one. He left a note at the house asking the occupant to contact him.He returned two days later and again heard a dog and decided to call gardai who forced entry into the property.Inside the house he found an emaciated terrier dog abandoned, covered in its own excrement. A bucket filled with water had been left beside the dog but it was unable to drink from it as it was too tall for the pup to reach.“The dog was in a poor state,” McGinley told the court.“Its backbone was protruding and its ribs were prominent.”He traced owner Natalie McGranaghan to her mother’s home but she had claimed she had sold the dog.She later admitted she hadn’t – but claimed she had fed the dog two days earlier.Judge Paul Kelly – looking at these pictures – remarked that “this was an appalling thing to do to an unfortunate defenceless animal.”The judge adjourned sentence until July 16 to allow McGranaghan time to pay €400 in veterinary bills.The dog has since made a full recovery.JUDGE SLAMS WOMAN WHO LEFT DOG TO STARVE IN HOUSE was last modified: April 16th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DOGdonegalDSPCAletterkennystarvewoman
