Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector Martinsville, VA [Anglican Communion News Service] The Anglican Alliance is helping to coordinate the response from Anglican churches and agencies around the world to the ongoing violence in South Sudan. A few days ago, they convened a conference call for partners across the Anglican Communion to hear from and speak with the leadership of the Episcopal Church of South Sudan and Sudan (ECSSS) and its relief and development arm SUDRA (the Sudanese Development and Relief Agency).During the call, SUDRA outlined its initial need for support for the 200 families seeking shelter in the All Saints’ Cathedral Compound. Episcopal Relief & Development of the U.S.-based Episcopal Church confirmed it would provide the necessary assistance.SUDRA has issued a second proposal to address the food needs of some 14,400 internally displaced people (IDP), as they assess the emerging needs. The proposal focuses on highly vulnerable children, women and elderly people in Juba, Kajo Keji, Yei, Lainya, and Rejaf.“SUDRA aims to meet the survival needs of the most vulnerable in the first month while it advocates with humanitarian agencies to meet other needs and explore long-term solutions until peace is implemented,” the co-executive director of the Anglican Alliance, the Rev. Rachel Carnegie, told ACNS. “This proposal has been shared with partners within the Anglican Alliance family, and already the Anglican Board of Mission in Australia has indicated its support.”During the conference call, the ECSSS leadership told their Anglican Communion partners that nearly 42,000 people were initially displaced in Juba, many turning to the churches for sanctuary. They explained that many people may be afraid to go back as they are uncertain if the ceasefire will actually hold. Some who want to return have seen their homes looted or destroyed and need further assistance.Markets have also been looted, so there may be imminent food shortages particularly as the borders are closed and there are limited imports of food supplies. There have been similar outbreaks of violence in Lainya, Yei, Kajo Keji, and Wau.“The violence in South Sudan and the subsequent insecurity in the region has forced several international agencies to evacuate their personnel from the country,” Carnegie said. “The church, locally based, stands in the breach, protecting the most vulnerable.”“It is inspirational to witness the courage and commitment of the bishops and provincial team responding so quickly and effectively to the crisis when many of them have themselves been driven from their homes by the violence. We urge prayer for peace and for protection of the church and communities. The Anglican Alliance also commends support to the Church’s humanitarian response.” Tags Rector Smithfield, NC Anglican Communion, Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK By ACNS staffPosted Jul 21, 2016 Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

On March 4, 1989, a young band called Phish played their first show at the famous Wetlands Preserve in New York City. Despite an interesting, high-intensity “Mikes Groove” and a quality “Run Like An Antelope,” 3/4/89 was a relatively standard 1989 performance, not often discussed as a particularly significant show from a musical standpoint. However, the show marked a significant milestone in the band’s evolutionPhish was born and raised in Burlington, VT, a city they would call home during their formative years as a band. But while they are undoubtedly a “Vermont band,” there is arguably no other city as closely tied to Phish’s success than New York City. In 1989, after several years honing their crafting Vermont, the band begin break out of their hometown market, playing shows across New England and New York state. After their successful debut at Wetlands, the band would return to the “activist nightclub” four more times in ’89 and three times the following year, bolstering a fervent new fan base in the Big Apple. Over time, the band would outgrow the club, transitioning to bigger rooms in the New York market like The Marquee, Roseland Ballroom, The Capitol Theatre (Port Chester), The Beacon Theatre and, by the end of 1994, Madison Square Garden.These days, the iconic New York City arena has become Phish’s de facto home court: They’ve played there more times than any other venue, and frequently end their years there with a four-night New Year’s run. This summer, Phish will play an unprecedented 13-night residency at the Garden, bringing their total show count at the venue above 50 and solidifying their place in the pantheon of NYC live music legends. There’s no denying that the relationship between Phish and New York City has been a fruitful musical partnership, and it can all be traced back to one night–28 years ago today–at 161 Hudson Street in TriBeCa.You can listen to (nearly) full audio of Phish’s premiere at Wetlands Preserve in New York City on 3/4/89 below, courtesy of YouTube user fromtheaquarium: Setlist: Phish | Wetlands Preserve | New York, NY | 3/4/89 [via phish.net] Set 1: Take the ‘A’ Train, I Didn’t Know, Mike’s Song > I Am Hydrogen > Weekapaug Groove, Fee, Golgi Apparatus, Good Times Bad TimesSet 2: Possum > Fluffhead, The Lizards, Run Like an Antelope, Contact Fish on trombone.I Didn’t Know featured Fish on trombone.

Hungarian operator MOL has received consent from the offshore safety body, the Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA), for exploration drilling in the North Sea using the Deepsea Bergen drilling rig.Deepsea Bergen; Source: CCBThe well, designated 25/8-19 S, is located in production license 820 in the North Sea where MOL’s Norwegian subsidiary, MOL Norge, is the operator.MOL Norge holds a 40 percent ownership interest while its partners Lundin, Wintershall, and Pandion Energy hold 30, 20, and 10 percent respectively.The well, given the prospect name of Evra/Iving, will be drilled in the central North Sea in a water depth of 125 meters.The PSA said on Thursday that the drilling was scheduled to begin on September 25 and expected to last 44 days.According to the offshore safety watchdog, the well will be drilled using the Deepsea Bergen rig.Deepsea Bergen is a semi-submersible mobile drilling rig of the Aker H-3.2 type, built at Aker Verdal in 1983. It is owned and operated by Odfjell Drilling. The rig is classified by DNV GL and is registered in Norway.Deepsea Bergen received an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) from the PSA in December 2001.It is worth reminding that Odfjell Drilling signed a letter of intent for the rig with MOL Norge for one exploration well in October 2018. The deal was set to be in direct continuation of the contract with OMV Norge and expire in 3Q/4Q 2019. The contract value was estimated at $9 million, plus potential incentive bonus.Spotted a typo?

Falcarragh residents are being advised that water will be off tomorrow, Tuesday, to facilitate the connection of a new water main.Works are continuing to replace ageing water mains in Falcarragh and progressing as scheduled, according to Irish Water.There will be a planned water outage on Tuesday, 10 December from 10am – 5pm for the next step of the project. There will be no planned interruptions of this scale again until the New Year, an Irish Water spokesperson said. Homes and businesses in the affected areas may be impacted by water outages and reduced water pressure tomorrow. Following these improvement works, water supply may take 2-3 hours to return as water refills the network.The works will also involve laying new water service connections from the public water main in the road to customers’ property boundaries and connecting it to the customers’ water supply.The overall project involves the decommissioning and replacement of approximately 1.6 kilometres of problematic water mains in Falcarragh, along the Ballintemple Lower with high density polyethylene (plastic) ones.The Falcarragh upgrade scheme is being carried out on behalf of Irish Water by Farran’s Construction Ltd and is expected to be completed in January 2020. Water outage planned in Falcarragh for new connection works was last modified: December 9th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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)
25 January 2008South Africa’s Cabinet emerged from a two-day meeting on Friday with a top priority plan to tackle the country’s “national electricity emergency”, saying it was confident that SA’s healthy economic growth could be sustained, and stressing that there would be no freezing of new investment projects.Speaking to journalists in Cape Town after the Cabinet meeting, Public Enterprises Minister Alec Erwin said the “unprecedented, unplanned” power outages that have hit South Africa over the last two weeks “must now be treated as a national electricity emergency that has to be addressed with the urgent, vigorous and co-ordinated actions commensurate with such an emergency situation.”Erwin conceded that the government had been caught wrong-footed by the increased demand for electricity spurred by the robust economic growth of recent years, saying its instruction to state company Eskom to embark on a massive infrastructure building programme in 2004 “was, in hindsight, late.”Eskom plans to invest R150-billion in its power supply infrastructure over the next five years, mostly on new power stations, including the return to service of three mothballed power stations.In addition, the government made moves towards the end of last year to fast-track electricity projects by independent power producers, as well as electricity co-generation projects involving both Eskom and private industry.“Both of these are now receiving urgent attention, and announcements will be made as we are able to provide certainty,” Erwin said.In the meantime, however, it was crucial to bring South Africa’s electricity supply and distribution system “back into balance”, both to reduce the need for power cuts and to allow for system maintenance to take place without putting the system under even greater stress.Key to this, Erwin said, was reducing demand. As an immediate, “quick hit” measure to achieve this, the government would soon introduce a power-rationing programme, setting quotas for industrial, commercial and residential users and using both incentives and penalties to ensure that these quotas are met.Minerals and Energy Minister Buyelwa Sonjica, briefing journalists alongside Erwin, said the examples of countries like Cuba and Brazil had shown that an energy crisis “can be turned around to make a country grow even more economically and save substantial amounts of money if a nationwide energy efficiency drive is politically driven.”Erwin said the government viewed the next two years as being critical.“We must stress that the successful implementation of these programmes will give us much more comfort within a two-year period,” Erwin said. “It is also critical to stress that the growth of South Africa’s economy at the current healthy levels can continue if we change our behaviour and become more energy efficient.“This emergency must entrench energy efficiency.”Erwin said that South African consumers, long used to getting their electricity extremely cheaply by international standards, would also have to face up to the reality of “further significant increases in electricity prices.“However, such increases will be implemented so as to significantly lessen their impact on the poor,” Erwin said, adding that despite the increases South Africa would still remain “the most competitive large energy system in the world”.Regarding the 2010 Fifa World Cup, Erwin said the Cabinet was fully briefed on the electricity situation “as it specifically relates to the World Cup and on general progress with the preparations for infrastructure for 2010. There is no threat to the successful holding of the event, as plans to ensure electricity security in that period are well advanced.”Other measures the government aims to implement in order to reduce South Africa’s demand for electricity include:Increasing the use of more efficient lighting, replacing incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent light fittings.Increasing the use of of solar water heaters.Increasing the use of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LP Gas) for domestic cooking.Converting traffic and other public lights to solar power with battery backup.Introducing smart metering to enable Eskom, or municipal power distributors, to remotely manage residential customer load during times of peak demand.SAinfo reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo material
7 March 2014Tennis South Africa on Thursday named two leading consultants to assist South African Davis Cup captain John-Laffnie De Jager in selecting his future Davis Cup teams.The consultants, former professional players Robbie Koenig and Michael De Jongh, will sit with the captain at intervals throughout the year and discuss the performances of the country’s top players on the international circuit, and together debate the selection of players for the Davis Cup.Doubles partnerKoenig played on the ATP World Tour from 1992 to 2003 and reached a singles ranking high of 262 and doubles ranking high of 28. Ironically, Koenig partnered De Jager for a number of seasons as a professional, with the two reaching the semi- finals of the 1998 US Open.During his career, Koenig won five doubles titles and was a finalist on six occasions. He also represented South Africa in the Davis Cup in 2003, against Portugal and Poland.Nowadays Koenig is active on the ATP Tour as one of the world’s leading television commentators, working for the ATP at all their major events.Providing insightHe said he was happy to assist Tennis South Africa and the Davis Cup captain in an advisory role. “With me being involved in high level international tennis on a weekly basis, I’ll be able to provide both with plenty of insight. John-Laffnie is very experienced in his role and I’ll be there to discuss any issues relating to Davis Cup should he so require.”De Jongh played professional tennis, but made his name as a leading coach on the professional circuit coaching the likes of Martina Navratilova, Mary Pierce and Amanda Coetzer.Since retiring as a touring coach, he has been active in tennis as a Tennis South Africa board member and television commentator.‘Experience and knowledge’“Tennis South Africa’s decision to appoint consultants of the ilk of Robbie Koenig and Michael De Jongh to assist and advise John-Laffnie on the Davis Cup Team and programme is a recognition of the substantial contribution of both experience and knowledge that South Africa’s former international players can bring to tennis in South Africa,” Tennis South Africa Vice President Gavin Crookes said in a statement.“Furthermore, it also provides our Davis Cup captain with an important and objective sounding board that he is able to use and draw upon in his and Tennis South Africa’s quest to achieve South Africa’s goal of returning to the World Group Division of this team competition.”SAinfo reporter
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Larry C. BrownNow is the time to start checking your existing agricultural drainage system for any field conditions that may need your attention after the last crop season and certainly after the excessive rainfall in 2018. Check drainage outlets for damage or blockage, and clean the animal guard; check the field for drain blowouts or soil failures where excessive runoff and sediment may enter the subsurface drains; check areas that ponded last crop season, or where crop yields were reduced because of excessive rainfall and soil wetness to assess the need for additional drainage, etc.You may be considering new subsurface drainage or replacing parts of older systems. When considering a new system, you might want to think about an alternative system design, a Drainage Water Management System. All of the benefits that come with a traditional subsurface drainage system can be achieved with a system that is designed for drainage water management, plus at least several important extras. Drainage Water Management (commonly called controlled drainage) provides improved water quality benefits.Recent research from across the Midwest shows that with drainage water management, annual nitrate-nitrogen loads can be reduced by as much as 50%. A similar result might be possible for soluble phosphorus, but more research is needed. In addition, Ohio research suggests crop yield increases of 3% to 4% are possible, on average, and maybe more in certain cases in some years. Some of this crop yield increase may be attributed to some saving of drainage water in the soil profile for plant use.Drainage water management systems may differ from traditional subsurface drainage systems as follows: 1) drainage laterals are installed on or near contour; 2) a water control structure is installed at the drainage outlet; and the outlet elevation can be raised to retain some of the drainage water, and lowered to allow excess drainage water to be released; and 3) system layout may be designed to optimize drainage water retention by constructing water management zones, each with a separate water control structure, and with new or replacement systems, installing the drainage laterals more along the contours of the landscape. Of course, there may be other differences. Want to know about the pros and cons to each system? Want to know how best to design and layout subsurface drainage systems, as well as design, layout and management drainage water management (controlled drainage) systems? Consider attending the 2019 Ohio State University’s Overholt Drainage School.The 2019 school will be held March 18-21 in Paulding County. This four-day school will cover: 1) Subsurface drainage: design, layout and installation; benefits and impacts; 2) Drainage water management (Controlled drainage), design, layout and installation, management, and benefits; and 3) Drainage water harvesting for agricultural water supply; and a summary of water quality improvement practices (BMPs) that fit well with drainage water management systems. These practices include: woodchip bioreactors, phosphate filters, improved blind inlet construction, saturated buffers, and others.The Overholt Drainage School is an intensive course and is open to anyone interested in advancing their knowledge of basic concepts, principles, and skills related to the purpose, design, layout, construction, and management of soil and water conservation systems, with emphasis on agricultural water management and water quality. The School is sponsored by the Overholt Drainage Education and Research Program, the Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering Department, OSU Extension, Paulding County Extension, OARDC, the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences, The Ohio State University, in cooperation with the USDA-NRCS, USDA-ARS, Soil and Water Conservation Districts, Ohio Land Improvement Contractors and Associates, and others. The Overholt Drainage School has been conducted annually since the mid-1950s. The 2019 School is the 31st. Excellent drainage workshops are also conducted in Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Minnesota, North and South Dakota. For more information, please contact Larry C.
