first_imgThe Bonneville Power Administration’s new regional maintenance headquarters at its Ross Complex in the Minnehaha neighborhood is taking shape and well on its way to completion.The $20 million investment consolidates five service crews from four locations and their equipment into one location on the roughly 270-acre Ross Complex. BPA officials say the consolidation will enable crews to more quickly respond to power grid issues between Cascade Locks, Ore., and Astoria, Ore.“We predict it’ll save about an hour with guys all being in one place,” said Brad Wright, BPA facility planning project manager.It’ll also benefit the surrounding homeowners by taking maintenance trucks and personnel traffic off 10th Avenue by creating one entrance with a dedicated turn lane on Northeast Minnehaha Street that will lead into the facility.Earlier this year, a berm between the complex and Minnehaha was removed along with several trees. By the time the project is complete, the edge of the property will be revegetated with about 25 trees along the street to shield the project.Additionally, an existing entrance off Minnehaha Street near Northeast St. James Road will be improved for better security and vehicle access.The maintenance headquarters will have two new facilities built on-site, one for personnel and the other for trucks and other equipment. The buildings will be equipped with solar panels that will create as much energy on site as they will consume. Behind them will be an area where transmission, substation and communications crews can stage equipment and materials they’ll need before heading out to a location.last_img read more

Prime Minister visits Antiquities Monuments and Museum Corporation

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppBahamas, June 22, 2017 – Nassau – The construction and/or renovation of a National Museum of The Bahamas has tremendous potential in terms of not only preserving the country’s history for future generations of Bahamians, but also in generating job and wealth creation opportunities for Bahamians of all walks of life, Prime Minister, Dr. the Hon. Hubert Minnis said Wednesday.Just last week, the Prime Minister proposed the construction of a National Museum of The Bahamas not only for the benefit of Bahamians, but also as a heritage experience for tourists. The Prime Minister said the construction of a National Museum of The Bahamas would reap great dividends for the country.On Wednesday (June 21), Prime Minister Minnis said whether the National Museum of The Bahamas will be constructed as a free-standing facility or through the renovation of existing space at “Centreville” (where the Antiquities, Monuments and Museum Corporation is currently located in the old Ministry of Education Headquarters Compound on Shirley Street and Collins Avenue) is a matter that will be up for discussion with officials at the Corporation which is headed by Dr. Keith Tinker, Ph.D., Director of the National Museum of The Bahamas, the Antiquities, Monuments and Museum Corporation (AMMC).“The Bahamas has great potential in terms of our history and our historic sites and we have to grasp the opportunity,” Prime Minister Minnis said. “It’s unfortunate they (Antiquities, Monuments and Museum Corporation) do not have a proper museum within which to display that history. That must be dealt with as we move forward because Bahamians are losing a lot of their history.“We must see to it that a proper museum is either constructed or renovated in order to give Bahamians and visitors alike an opportunity to see these artifacts being displayed properly so that they will be able to get a glimpse into our great Bahamian history.“Whether we will construct a free standing museum or renovate what is here now, is a discussion they and I will have going forward, but the bottom line is we must have a proper museum to display the various artifacts found within The Bahamas – plus its an excellent attraction for both tourists and residents.”Prime Minister Minnis made his comments while visiting facilities at the site of the Antiquities, Monuments and Museum Corporation. The tour was part of the Prime Minister’s ongoing familiarization visits to government corporations, ministries and departments that fall under the purview of the Office of the Prime Minister.Prime Minister Minnis’ most recent visit was to the Department of Lands and Surveys. Officials there say it was the first time a Minister at any level had visited the Department in almost thirty years. As with all of his previous familiarization visits, the Prime Minister was accompanied by Mr. Jack Thompson, Permanent Secretary, Office of the Prime Minister.“I am an ardent believer in culture. I think it has a great role to play in terms of attracting cruise and airlift tourists to our shores and expanding economic opportunities for Bahamians while also increasing revenue,” Prime Minister Minnis said.“Ours is a richly textured culture. Our history, music, food, dance, art, craft and our folkways are distinctly different. We must fully capitalize on our culture and heritage to add a more vibrant visitor experience.”Prime Minister Minis said twenty-first century travelers are seeking more than the proverbial sun, sand and sea experience.“They travel in search of unique and authentic experiences. The Bahamas has a rich culture that can provide those experiences and should be tapped into to generate additional tourism revenue.”Prime Minister Minnis encouraged executives at the Antiquities, Monuments and Museum Corporation to develop a Master Plan for the development of the National Museum of The Bahamas – one that would allow for job and wealth creation for a larger number of Bahamians.“Government obviously does not have all of the necessary resources to do certain things and I am an ardent believer in privatization because through privatization you expand wealth,” Prime Minister Minnis said.“When I say privatize, I am not suggesting privatizing to any select group, but the kind of privatization that will create wealth and expand wealth to give everybody an opportunity. Individuals can have great ideas, but not necessarily the resources. Government’s responsibility should be to create opportunities for them so that you can create wealth, but not confine it (wealth) to one location. If you do that with the multiple forts that we have for example, then you would be surprised at the amount of jobs you create, the amount of opportunities you create and that’s the type of privatization I prefer, the kind that expands wealth and create job opportunities for more Bahamians,” Prime Minister Minnis added.Press Release: BIS Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

Chelsea set to appeal ban

first_imgChelsea FC have released a statement confirming they will appeal FIFA’s decision to ban them from registering new players for the next two transfer windows.The World football governing body found Chelsea guilty of breaching rules regarding the signings of 29 minors.Which means permanent deals for ex-Inter midfielder Mateo Kovacic and Juventus loanee Gonzalo Higuain are equally in doubt.However, the Blues hit back in an official statement: “Chelsea FC has today received a decision from the FIFA Disciplinary Committee concerning alleged breaches of the FIFA Regulations that relate to the international transfer of players under the age of 18.“The decision imposes a transfer ban of two consecutive registration periods and a fine of 600k Swiss francs. Chelsea FC categorically refutes the findings of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee and will, therefore, be appealing the decision.“The club wishes to emphasise that it respects the important work undertaken by FIFA in relation to the protection of minors and has fully cooperated with FIFA throughout its investigation.“Initially, Chelsea FC was charged under Articles 19.1 and 19.3 in relation to 92 players. We welcome the fact that FIFA has accepted that there was no breach in relation to 63 of these players, but the club is extremely disappointed that FIFA has not accepted the club’s submissions in relation to the remaining 29 players.WolverhamptonMatch Preview: Wolverhampton vs Chelsea Boro Tanchev – September 13, 2019 Wolverhampton will host Chelsea at the Molineux Stadium in one of the most interesting Premier League games this weekend.Chelsea Football Club has today issued the following statement.— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) February 22, 2019“Chelsea FC acted in accordance with the relevant regulations and will shortly be submitting its appeal to FIFA.”The future of manager Maurizio Sarri has also come back under the spotlight, amidst speculation of a move to Roma next season.Chelsea fans will be hoping for the brighter side of things when they face Man City in the Carabao Cup finals.

If at the end of the year you win something you can say that.“You always want to win the big ones, but if you don’t win the big ones then at least you have something to show for it in an OK season.De Bruyne equally hinted on Liverpool’s challenge this season suggesting the title will be too close to call this season.“We are in a good position in the league.

County public health officials also disclosed another student meningitis case from June, bringing the total number of student infections in the last four months to three and prompting health officials to declare an outbreak at SDSU, university Student Health Services Medical Director Cynthia Cornelius said Friday.In the June case, the infected student was not attending classes and lived off campus, she said. County officials did not initially announce the case because it wasn’t considered a public health risk at the time.All three cases were caused by the serogroup B strain, Cornelius said. None of the infected students were identified.County officials recommended that all undergraduate students at SDSU receive a meningococcus B vaccination if they haven’t already had one.The county and the university will partner to offer vaccine clinics, Cornelius said. Information on the clinics will be available early next week.Meningococcal meningitis is the bacterial form of the illness, and the most dangerous kind. According to the Centers for Disease Control, it can be deadly and requires immediate medical attention.Symptoms can include a high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, rash nausea, vomiting and lethargy, and may resemble the flu, according to Cornelius. Because the disease progresses rapidly, often in as little as 12 hours, prompt diagnosis and treatment are critical.The bacteria can be transmitted by direct contact with saliva, through the air via sneeze or cough droplets or even through speaking closely face- to-face, she said. Oral contact such as kissing or sharing items like cigarettes or drinking glasses are risk factors.SDSU will continue to partner with county health officials to monitor the outbreak, Cornelius said.

Encinitas is the only city in San Diego County that does not have such a housing plan, in violation of state law.“We’re trying to comply with the state housing laws which say you have to have more housing that’s at higher density and the people have not been willing to support that,” Blakespear said.Although Encinitas has never drawn up a housing plan, state regulators did not take notice until 2017, when a tenant rights group and the Building Industry Association of San Diego decided to take Encinitas to court.As part of the lawsuit, Encinitas must submit a draft housing element to the state.However, state regulators with the Department of Housing and Community Development said they would not certify it, until the City of Encinitas either revised or invalidated its restrictive housing rules.The judge in the lawsuit has issued an April deadline for Encinitas to decide how it can submit a housing plan that complies with state law.Borre Winckel, the President and CEO of the Building Industry Association said local governments cannot decide they are above state law.“Citizens cannot vote their obligations away, the obligations that exist under state law.” Winckel estimated that the county is at least 92,000 units short of the housing that the region needs by 2020.
