Canada grants funds for environmental assessment of ExxonMobil drilling program

first_imgThe Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) has allocated funds to assist in the environmental assessment of the proposed Eastern Newfoundland Offshore Exploration Drilling Project.To put things more in perspective, ExxonMobil Canada is proposing to conduct an exploration drilling project within offshore exploration licenses located in both the Jeanne d’Arc Basin and the Flemish Pass Basin in the Atlantic Ocean, approximately 250 kilometers east of St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador.As proposed, the drilling project would include the drilling of wells up to 35 wells within a 12-year period, starting in 2018. According to the CEAA, the project would allow ExxonMobil to determine the presence, nature, and quantities of the potential hydrocarbon resource.In Wednesday’s statement, CEAA said that the funding for the environmental assessment was made available through the agency’s Participant Funding Program.The $228,977 funding program will assist the participation of the public and indigenous groups in upcoming steps of the environmental assessment, which include reviewing and providing comments on the Environmental Impact Statement or its summary, the draft Environmental Assessment Report and the potential environmental assessment conditions.Among others, the funds were awarded to the Conseil de la Première Nation des Innus Natashquan, Corporation Ka Tshishpeuatak, on behalf of the Conseil des Innus de Ekuanitshit, Elsipogtog First Nation, and Kwilmu’kw Maw-Klusuaqn Negotiation Office.

Boston manager Ron Roenicke (REHN’-ih-kee) said when bench coach Jerry Narron gave him the Rays lineup, he thought it was wrong.Elsewhere around the majors:— Orioles right-hander Dean Kremer goes for a repeat shutdown of the Yankees after he pitched one-run ball over six innings against New York in his major league debut last Sunday. Kremer limited the Yankees to one hit, struck out seven and retired 14 of his final 15 batters. The 24-year-old was acquired from the Dodgers in 2018 as part of a deal that sent away Manny Machado. Jordan Montgomery is set to start for New York at Yankee Stadium.— Rookie right-hander Spencer Howard will replace Zack Wheeler as the Phillies’ starter in Game 4 of their seven-game series at Miami. Wheeler ripped a fingernail putting on his pants Wednesday, delaying his next start until at least Monday and perhaps longer. José Ureña is scheduled to start for the Marlins. He allowed three runs in five innings in his first start of the year against Atlanta after being sidelined by the coronavirus.— Chicago Cubs right-hander Kyle Hendricks will try to keep up a recent run of solid starts when he pitches at Miller Park against a team he dominated in the season opener. Hendricks has given up one run in each of his last two starts. He worked eight innings and allowed seven hits and no walks in a 5-1 victory over St. Louis on Monday. That followed a six-inning stint in which he yielded six hits and two walks in an 8-2 triumph over Pittsburgh. Those two outings lowered his ERA from 4.09 to 3.41. Hendricks now goes against the Milwaukee Brewers for the first time since throwing a three-hit shutout against them in the opening game for both teams. Hendricks struck out nine and walked nobody in that 3-0 victory on July 24. COLLEGE FOOTBALL-WEST VIRGINIA-SUSPENSIONSWest Virginia suspends 11 for opener; bans not tied to virusMORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia suspended 11 players for its season opener Saturday for an undisclosed violation of team rules. Coach Neal Brown announced the suspensions Saturday before the Mountaineers played at home against Eastern Kentucky. The school would not specify what the players did, except to say this is not related to the coronavirus.Among them were slot wide receivers T.J. Simmons and Isaiah Esdale, tight ends T.J. Banks and Mike O’Laughlin, and two starting offensive linemen, center Chase Behrndt and left tackle Junior Uzebu. LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — The Houston Rockets didn’t show up for Game 4 against the Los Angeles Lakers until it was too late. They can’t do that again Saturday in Game 5.

There have been 45 games in the majors postponed this season because of coronavirus concerns.NASCAR-RICHMONDHamlin seeks to regain mojo at Richmond in home track raceRICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Denny Hamlin, disgusted with his performance in the opening playoff race, gets another chance Saturday night on his home track, Richmond Raceway. Kevin Harvick won the first round. Hamlin once held a clear advantage over his rivals at home track Richmond Raceway. He’s won three races and has 17 top-10 finishes in 27 career starts at the Virginia track. He’s only finished lower than sixth once in the last nine races at Richmond yet believes he long ago lost the edge he held over his competitors on the 0.75-miles, D-shaped oval. Hamlin believes data sharing has allowed his rivals to catch him at his favorite track. The Knights and Stars became the first teams in the modern era (since 1943-44) to exchange shutouts in the first two games of a conference semifinal of final series. Game 3 was scoreless until the closing seconds of the second period.MLB-SCHEDULEHighlights of Saturday’s scheduleUNDATED (AP) — The innovative Rays became the first major league team since at least 1900 to start a batting order with all left-handed batters when they played Boston on Friday night. We’ll see what Tampa Bay tries next when it takes on Red Sox right-hander Nathan Eovaldi at Tropicana Field. The Rays stacked their lefties versus Andrew Triggs, who worked around a hit and walk in a scoreless first inning. The Red Sox brought in lefty Matt Hall to pitch the second, and Yoshi Tsutsugo greeted him with a home run. While some teams have started a lineup in which all batters hit from the left side the first time up, all previous occasions since 1901 included at least one switch-hitter. Williams took a medical timeout for a tape job on her Achilles during her three-set loss on Thursday.The Italian Open, which was rescheduled from May due to the coronavirus pandemic, begins Monday.NFL-TITANS-WILSON ARRESTEDTitans top draft pick arrested, charged with drunken drivingNASHVILLE, Tenn.

Freshman cornerback Vincent Okloli was the lone suspended player on defense. TENNIS-US OPENOsaka and Azarenka meet in finalNEW YORK (AP) — Naomi Osaka and Victoria Azarenka will both be seeking a third Grand Slam title when they meet in the U.S. Open final. Osaka is 10-0 since tennis resumed after a five-month hiatus caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Azarenka carries an 11-match winning streak into Saturday’s matchup, capped by a 1-6, 6-3, 6-3 elimination of Serena Williams in the semifinals Thursday night. No. 10 Notre Dame entertains Duke in its inaugural Atlantic Coast Conference season opener. This is the first of 10 ACC games for both teams and the first time ever that Notre Dame will be playing for a conference title in football. The ACC accommodated the Irish with 10 games and a chance to play for the ACC title after the pandemic wrecked Notre Dame’s schedule.Iowa State will open against an opponent from the Football Bowl Subdivision for the first time since 2012. The Cyclones originally were set to ease into the season against South Dakota from the Championship Subdivision. But the pandemic caused postponements and cancellations across college football, and the Cyclones had to scramble to line up Louisiana-Lafayette for Saturday. ISU coach Matt Campbell hopes the Cyclones don’t get more than they bargained for in a game that will net the Ragin’ Cajuns $350,000. Lafayette is coming off an 11-win season that ranks as its best in program history.Trevor Lawrence and No. 1-ranked Clemson begin their bid to return to the national title game for the fifth time in six years when the Tigers visit ACC opponent Wake Forest. Clemson is beginning their pursuit of a sixth straight ACC championship and a third national title in five seasons. They’re coming off a loss to LSU in last year’s College Football Playoff finale, the only blemish on a two-year, 29-1 record. That also marks the only loss in the college career of Heisman Trophy candidate Trevor Lawrence at quarterback. The Demon Deacons are opening the season looking for a fifth straight bowl appearance under Dave Clawson.Meanwhile, the season-opening game between Virginia and Virginia Tech that was scheduled for Sept. 19 in Blacksburg has been postponed because of COVID-19 issues at Virginia Tech. Virginia Tech is also pausing football practice for four days.On its web page, Virginia Tech reported Friday it has had 219 positive tests for the coronavirus in the previous seven days, putting its total infections at 633 since testing began Aug. 3. The numbers have risen steadily since students returned Aug. 24. The offensive lineman was arrested Friday night and released Saturday morning. According to the arrest warrant, Wilson told the officer he was having issues with a back tire, but he struggled with the field sobriety tests. The No. 29 pick overall in April out of Georgia currently is on the reserve-COVID list for the second time. He started training camp on the list before being removed Aug. 3 and was placed on the list again on Sept. 6.

Geocaching Geocoins Help Crack a Theft Ring

first_img SharePrint RelatedThe Father of the Geocoin: Moun10BikeMay 25, 2015In “Community”Become Trackable on Geocaching.com – Tattoos to Travel BugsSeptember 13, 2011In “Community”Geocoinfest 2011 – Europa: Travels with the World’s First GeocoinSeptember 14, 2011In “Community” Heather, aka “Craftea”, with her recovered Geocoins still in the police evidence bagThere’s something special about a Trackable at Geocaching.com—it’s actually trackable. You know who owns it. You know where it’s been, and ideally, where it wants to go next.Now imagine you’re a police detective. You serve a search warrant on a storage locker. You find evidence you believe is stolen. But how do you prove that evidence actually belongs to someone else? Then, you see a glistening Geocoin, with a tracking number.Heather, aka Craftea, from Washington state in the U.S. was the beneficiary for just such a series of events and some real crafty police work.She says her story began in November of 2012. “My home was burglarized and I lost a great many items, including a three-ring binder with baseball-card pockets where I kept my geocoin collection, and a bag of geopins along with more standard stuff like laptops and other electronics.”Her day to day geocaching wasn’t completely interrupted thanks to a lucky break, “Thankfully my GPS was in the car with me when my home was being broken into so I didn’t lose that. The responding cop didn’t give me much hope that any of my things will ever be recovered but it still took me several months before I finally went online to mark each of my coins as missing, feeling that made it more final, like I was giving up hope.”Months passed, life continued. And Heather began to move on. “I did, really, give up hope, and while I feel the loss of my things just about every day, I am slowly replacing things as I can afford to.”The whole experience came back to her after it was nearly forgotten. “It was with a bit of a shock when I got an e-mail from a detective from Seattle’s West Precinct with front-and-back pictures of one of my geocoins with a note saying that it and ‘several others’ were recovered during a search warrant issued on a storage unit. He said he recognized it as a Geocoin and logged on Geocaching.com and did a search with the coin’s code and saw my profile and that I had marked it missing and wanted to know why.”It was an email she quickly responded to, “I contacted him and was able to either describe the coins or give him the code after he described them to me. He had “4 or 5″ of them and he was satisfied they were mine. After more search warrants were issued on a different storage unit and a house associated with the same people as were for the original unit where my coins were found, the detective contacted me again and invited me to his office to pick up my coins and look at the pictures of the suspects as well as go through photos of evidence they’d recovered.”One of the Geocoins lost in the burglary“When I got to his office, he handed me 5 coins…” But for Heather the Geocoins are more than pieces of metal imprinted with a custom tracking code. They were reminders of adventures past and friends who offered the Geocoins as presents, “Two were gifts from FrodoB, one was a gift from Rey del Roble, one I earned at The Dalles Dash geocoin challenge and the 5th was an unactivated geoachievement coin given to me by my friend, MacCrew, from New York. Precious memories!” Check out the Trackable Details page from one of the lost and recovered Geocoins.Heather also received a few of the other items that were lost to the thieves who broke into her home. Among them, she has recovered a sense of justice, “There is still a great deal of loss but it was exciting to get back a few pieces, and knowing that a handful of geocoins connected the burglars to their crime against me (and many other homes…) and was instrumental in their arrest.”Share with your Friends:Morelast_img read more

24 days ago​Financial cost of Celtic’s Champions League failure

first_img​Financial cost of Celtic’s Champions League failureby Ian Ferris24 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveCeltic’s failure to qualify for last season’s Uefa Champions League group stage saw the Scottish soccer champions’ annual revenue for the year ending 30th June 2019 fall 17.9 per cent to UK£83.4 million (US$102.2 million), reports, www.sportspromedia.com/.The Scottish Premiership club’s latest financial results also show a pre-tax profit of UK£11.3 million (US$13.8 million) for the 2018/19 season, down from UK£17.3 million (US$21.2 million) the previous year.Celtic were able to offset some of the cost of missing out on the Champions League through player sales, bringing in UK£16.5 million (US$20.2 million) from outgoing transfers, not including the reported UK£25 million (US$30.6 million) Arsenal paid them in August for left back Kieran Tierney.The club ended the year with UK£38.9 million (US$47.6 million) in the bank, up from last season’s UK£27 million (US$33 million).A statement from club chairman Ian Bankier described the results as ‘satisfactory’ given the failure to reach the Champions League, adding: ‘The financial results for the year demonstrate the robustness of the group’s strategy of investment in football operations, whilst maintaining a self-sustaining financial model. This continues to provide a stable platform for football success and shareholder value.’ TagsScottish Football NewsAbout the authorIan FerrisShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

LSU Quarterback Brandon Harris: “I Expect To Play More This Year”

first_imgBrandon Harris speaks during press conference.Twitter/@DellengerAdvTo be frank, LSU’s quarterback situation in 2014 was not great. Anthony Jennings played most of the snaps for the Tigers, but finished with just 1,611 yards, 11 touchdowns, seven interceptions, and a poor completion percentage of 48.9. Freshman Brandon Jennings also spent some time under center, and had slightly better numbers (55.6% completion, 10.04 yards per attempt, six touchdowns to two interceptions), but after a very poor game at Auburn, he was benched. Harris was asked about his expectations for the upcoming season, and he was pretty blunt about the subject of playing time.Brandon Harris: “I expect to play more this year.” #LSU pic.twitter.com/7xj9XTAhEp— Ross Dellenger (@DellengerAdv) March 10, 2015Neither quarterback shined last year, but outside of the Auburn game, Harris looked pretty good. LSU will certainly be a quarterback battle to watch as we approach the 2015 season.last_img read more

Womens volleyball Ohio State looking for a comeback after loss to Hoosiers

Members of OSU women’s volleyball team celebrate after a point during a match against Nebraska on Oct. 14 at St. John Arena. Credit: Jenna Leinasars | Assistant News DirectorThe Ohio State women’s volleyball team is trying to rebound following a 3-1 upset at the hands of the Indiana Hoosiers on Saturday and a loss to Wisconsin at home prior to that.The Buckeyes will have two opportunities for redemption when they host back-to-back home matches this weekend at St. John Arena. OSU clashes with Rutgers on Friday and No. 10 Penn State on Saturday. The loss to the Hoosiers put OSU outside of the American Volleyball Coaches’ Association poll for the first time this season. Upcoming opponent Rutgers holds a 4-23 record and has yet to win a Big Ten match this season, while the Penn State Nittany Lions have maintained their powerhouse presence in the conference and stand at 18-7 overall. Penn State also swept the Buckeyes 3-0 the last time the two teams met on Oct. 19 in University Park, Pennsylvania.Senior middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe said the team’s loss to Indiana was just the nature of the beast that is the Big Ten conference. “They played really good defense against us, and I don’t think we were able to respond,” she said. “It’s just part of being in the Big Ten. You can’t underestimate anyone, and everyone has something to offer.” OSU coach Geoff Carlston said the Buckeyes have been in a rut for the past couple of matches. Prior to Indiana, OSU took a tough loss to Wisconsin at St. John Arena by a margin of just 11 total points. “The last couple matches, we’ve struggled finding rhythm. We make two or three good plays and then we’ll miss a serve at a crucial time or we just won’t make a play,” Carlston said. “We need to be able to string those runs together.”Putting the past aside, the Buckeyes – from the newcomers to the veterans – are choosing to stay optimistic heading into weekend play. “I really believe we can do it. We’re ready,” said freshman outside hitter Bia Franklin. “We’re going to practice hard this week, and it would be really nice to (get) that revenge (on Penn State).” Sandbothe is looked at as one of OSU’s senior leaders, and the team turns to her in times of trouble. Her strategy relies on keeping everyone calm and collected in the huddle. “It’s just taking a deep breath and refocusing, letting everyone know that we’re all on the same page,” she said. “The middle is a really great time for us to reset.” Sandbothe isn’t just leading by her words. Her play is speaking volumes about her and the team that surrounds her. During the Buckeyes’ last match with Wisconsin, she locked down the OSU record for most career blocks in history with 518 rejections. Sandbothe said the record has only added fuel to her competitive fire. “Now I want to slaughter it. Now I’m going to make sure that it’s not going to be broken for a lot longer,” she said. “It (breaking a record) gives you a greater appreciation for what this program means and the fact that there are people who put the jersey on before you and there’s going to be people who put it on after you.” Sandbothe is confident that OSU can put on a strong performance this weekend. She said back-to-back Friday and Saturday matches are good for the team’s pace. There is also the advantage of playing on home court. Carlston is looking a little farther than the weekend with the NCAA tournament coming up in December. All members of the Buckeyes’ teams have mentioned throughout the season their anticipation to be in the Final Four, which will be played in Columbus at Nationwide Arena. Carlston feels that 12 out of the 15 teams in the Big Ten have the ability to make it into the NCAA tournament, and this is the time for his team to make a statement that OSU should be one of them.“For us, taking care of our business this weekend at home is important,” he said. The Buckeyes will first take on the Scarlet Knights on Friday at 7 p.m. followed by the Nittany Lions at 7 p.m. on Saturday, both at St. John Arena. read more
