first_imgThe Crown Estate has shared its updated proposals for Round 4 offshore wind leasing, at its latest stakeholder engagement event.The updates include The Crown Estate’s proposed refinement of available seabed regions – within which developers would have the opportunity to identify and propose sites.This work, underpinned by a detailed assessment of spatial constraints and developed in collaboration with statutory stakeholders, identifies:Five regions that The Crown Estate proposes to include in plans for a new leasing round, on the basis that they are technically feasible, include sufficiently large areas of available seabed for offshore wind development and have lower levels of development constraint.Four regions which The Crown Estate proposes to take forward for further consideration, on the basis that additional work is required to build the evidence base and engage with technical stakeholders about these areas, in order to better understand the seabed resource and constraints and confirm their inclusion.Nine regions that will not be taken forward as part of Round 4, on the basis that they are impacted by significant development constraints, which would be challenging to mitigate, namely: defence ranges and exercise areas; visual sensitivity (i.e. where development would predominately or entirely be within 13km of shore) and overlap with shipping routes that contain traffic of more than 10,000 ships per year.As plans progress, The Crown Estate will continue to engage with technical stakeholders and build the evidence base on the nine regions being taken forward at this stage. This will enable it to finalise the regions to be offered to market, ahead of confirming the launch of Round 4, and later, help to inform developers in their identification of sites.To reach this point, The Crown Estate has undertaken extensive spatial analysis of technical resource and constraints, including other sea users and environmental sensitivities, through a combination of Geographic Information System (GIS) and qualitative analysis.The detailed analysis that underpins the regions refinement work will be published later this month, including: a Methodology Report, GIS model outputs, associated draft Characterisation Reports for each of the nine regions being taken forward at this stage and an Interim Summary Stakeholder Feedback Report.Other updates to The Crown Estate’s proposals shared at the event included:Capacity likely to be increased from 6GW to 7GW, in light of strong market appetite and the desire to ensure a sufficient pipeline is in place.Available regions to be extended from 50m to 60m water depths, after feedback from industry confirmed appetite for development of fixed foundation turbines beyond the 50m initially proposed.Following statutory stakeholder feedback, The Crown Estate is also commissioning additional work on key issues of uncertainty, including further assessments on marine protected area sensitivities, ornithology and visibility analysis.A parallel engagement event with the market will take place on 26 November, at which The Crown Estate will share further detail on the proposed tender design. Registration for this event, which is targeted at potential leasing process participants, is open until 21st November.Jonny Boston, Senior Development Manager at The Crown Estate, said: “We are pleased to share the work we’ve undertaken since the summer to refine our initial proposals for Round 4, building on the extensive and constructive feedback we received from statutory bodies and the market.“To reach this point, we’ve undertaken significant analysis, in close engagement with statutory stakeholders, to help build a detailed picture of seabed resource and constraints around England, Wales and Northern Ireland. We will continue to refine this work as we progress with our plans, helping build the evidence base to reduce consenting risk, balance a range of needs on the seabed, and ensure developers are well placed to bring the strongest possible projects forward.”last_img read more

Loading… “It all depends on social distancing and a temperature check. I will just say that, as we all know, from June we’ll have the reopening of theatres and open-air cinemas, maintaining distances. We’d need the fans to take on the responsibility and the clubs to really check that social distancing guidelines are being followed in stadiums. “An embrace after a goal would be putting people’s health at risk and cannot be allowed. If we want something and are prepared to take responsibility for our actions to make it happen, then it’s entirely possible. read also:Italian govt gives all-clear to Serie A training “We need a study to quantify how many fans are allowed in, how to ensure the social distancing and create a simulation before giving the all-clear.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted ContentWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Most Beloved First Ladies Of All TimeHere Are The Top 10 Tiniest Mobile Phones On The Planet!Which Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?The Highest Paid Football Players In The WorldBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For ThemThese Hilariously Creative Shower Curtains Will Make Your Day7 Netflix Shows Cancelled Because They Don’t Get The RatingsBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever MadeTop 7 Best Car Manufacturers Of All Time7 Thailand’s Most Exquisite Architectural WondersWhy Are Sharks Afraid Of Dolphins?last_img read more

first_imgBRITT, Iowa (Aug. 7) – Mark Elliott exorcised a lot of race demons Thursday night.Elliott led every lap in winning the Night of 1,000 Stars special for IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modi­fieds at Hancock County Speedway. His share of the purse totaled $7,000, including $3,500 for the victory and $2,500 in lap money, plus another $1,000 for leading at halfway.The top-paying event of the 2014 XSAN Hawkeye Dirt Tour drew 84 entries from 10 states and Canada.“What really helped us win tonight was a long month of July. We did the Dakota Classic Tour, then Speedweeks, and missed five of the shows,” the new 2015 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot qualifier said. “We went back to work on the car and everybody, my crew, my family and my sponsors, stayed focused on winning.” “Maybe the stars aligned,” he added. “We had the right amount of luck and it all worked out for us.”Also the 2006 and 2009 race winner, Elliott won his heat race despite a back row start and then drew the outside front row spot for the main event.He drove past Kevin Stoa and Clayton Christensen and was still in front when the race was stopped for the mandatory front stretch pit stop halfway through the 50-lapper.“We were prepared to change everything but the kitchen sink. I’ve got a veteran crew that’s been with me a long time. They added fuel, checked my tires and told me I was good,” Elliott said. “I didn’t even get out of the car. I sat there thinking that we’d had a pretty good first half of the race and wished that it had been the second half.” Benji LaCrosse pressured Elliott before the break but wound up repeating as the Night of 1,000 Stars runner-up. Ryan Ruter, defending race winner Kyle Strickler and hard charger Jeremy Mills completed the unofficial top five. Mills made the main event field as a provisional starter and advanced 26 positions. Randy Brands was the $700 IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature winner. First place was good for $500 for Ben Kates in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods and Andy Boeckman in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks. Friday’s Night of 10,000 Stars special at Britt boasts a guaranteed $7,000 and a total possible $10,000 to the IMCA winner.The 2011 tour champion, Elliott became the seventh different winner in as many Hawkeye Dirt Tour events this season.

first_img Now unbeaten in five starts, and subject to what is believed to be a high seven-figure transfer to Qatari owner Sheikh Joaan Bin Hamad Al Thani after she lifted the French Oaks, Treve has provided priceless moments to all those involved with her and, joyously, looks set to remain in training next season. Drawn wide, Treve (9-2) was unable to get any cover and pulled her head dramatically curving around the back of the course but still appeared to have so much to offer as she rolled to the lead turning into the home straight. All renaissance man Jarnet needed to do was point her in the right direction as his mount was never remotely in danger as she stretched right away. Head-Maarek is already the only woman to have trained the winner of the Arc, thanks to another filly Three Troikas back in 1979, and her latest was bred by her father, Alec. “I want to say thank you to Frankie Dettori as he rode an amazing race on her in the Prix Vermeille. I said to save her for today and he did,” she said. “A big kiss and thank you to Frankie, I am sorry he is not here today. “The way she won was incredible. She was wide the whole way and was travelling so easily the jockey just said he just let her go. I’m surprised how well she won, as we’ve never pushed her. “I thought she had six gears, but today she put the seventh one on.” Fillies have taken France’s signature race on many occasions – including the last two in Solemia and Danedream and stylishly by Zarkava in 2008 – but rarely do they assert such superiority over the colts as Criquette Head-Maarek’s marvel did by obliterating Orfevre by five lengths. All those at Longchamp on this international afternoon could only stop and admire Treve – she was even applauded sportingly by the thousands of Japanese visitors who had to settle for second best yet again – and perhaps the only person who will have been truly distressed is Frankie Dettori, who had to give the winning mount to Thierry Jarnet after breaking his ankle on Wednesday. Press Association What had been billed as the most fascinating and complex Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe in some years was simply reduced to a one-horse show as Treve offered up a quite astonishing performance in Paris. The humble and highly popular trainer went on: “I’m so proud for papa and for the Sheikh. “When he bought her, he said ‘I want you win an Arc’, I said ‘I cant promise but I’ll do my best’. “I’d like to ask the Sheikh if I can give her a rest. If there’s one race for her it would be Hong Kong. “I am going to speak with the Sheikh with the objective of keeping her in training next season and preparing her to win the Arc again.” Alec Head said: “I won the Arc with two fillies, but I think she is ahead of them all.” Jarnet, 46, secured the second of his previous Arcs way back in 1994. “It was a different era when I was riding for Andre Fabre and I’m just pleased to show I can still be effective,” he said. “This is beautiful, more in a way for the filly than for myself, as I have a strong affinity with her.” Christophe Soumillon, distressed when Orfevre appeared to give away last year’s Arc to Solemia, felt Treve was on another level. The Belgian did not do anything wrong and the powerful chestnut, who was the 2-1 favourite but shorter in the Pari Mutuel due to his nation’s support, was a head in front of Intello and two lengths clear of his compatriot Kizuna in fourth. “I got a good position but unfortunately the pace was not too strong,” Soumillon said. “I was trying to give him a good blow coming into the straight, but Treve took off at the 350 and we couldn’t follow her. “I was hoping she would stop, but she didn’t. His attitude was really great, I’m very sorry for the Japanese fans, owners and trainers who want to win this beautiful race and keep finishing second. “I think he’s a great champion but unfortunately Treve was just too good.” Roger Charlton’s Al Kazeem was sixth, one place in front of one of Aidan O’Brien’s two Classic winners, the Derby hero Ruler Of The World. Ryan Moore’s mount was a little short of room but never near enough, while the supplemented St Leger winner Leading Light was 12th. O’Brien said: “It was messy but they finished off their races well and they are two nice horses to look forward to next season.” last_img read more

first_img Leicester looked to regroup, and Mahrez curled a 20-yard effort wide after more patient build up from the Foxes, who had lost their last three Premier League matches. Arsenal, though, doubled their lead in the 41st minute. Ozil was given space some 25 yards out and drilled in a left-foot shot which Schwarzer could only parry. The ball dropped to Walcott, who dispatched it on the volley back into the bottom left corner for a third goal in four games. Arsenal felt they should have been awarded a penalty at the start of the second half when the ball clearly struck Leicester defender Danny Simpson on the arm from Sanchez’s pass, but referee Mike Jones was not convinced. Leicester continued to look for a way back into the match, with an angled pass from Simpson picking out Matty James in the right side of the penalty area, but the midfielder could not bring the ball under control. On the hour as former Arsenal defender Matthew Upson limped off, replaced by Marcin Wasilewski, Ospina got down quickly to beat away a low drive by Kramaric, whose cross was then headed over by Per Mertesacker. Arsenal were punished for some slack defending from the corner as it bounced around a crowded penalty area before being buried into the bottom left corner by Kramaric for his first Leicester goal since a £9million January move from Rijeka. The Gunners looked to reassert themselves, as Santi Cazorla tested Schwarzer with an angled drive before, after 68 minutes, Sanchez was replaced by Olivier Giroud. Mahrez curled a 20-yard effort inches wide before Leicester broke quickly again in the 71st minute, with Ospina just getting his fingers to a chip from Kramaric. Arsenal had to replace substitute Aaron Ramsey, who had not been on the pitch for more than 10 minutes, when the Wales midfielder pulled up with what looked like a hamstring problem. Matheiu Flamini came on. Leicester refused to lie down, but this time, there was to be no late capitulation from the Gunners, who host Middlesbrough in the FA Cup fifth round on Sunday. The Gunners, beaten by Tottenham in the north London derby on Saturday, looked to be in control after first-half goals from Laurent Koscielny and Theo Walcott. However, Croatia forward Andrej Kramaric netted his first Leicester goal after 61 minutes to reduce the deficit, while Arsene Wenger’s side survived some late pressure and some five minutes of stoppage time to secure victory which moves them back above Spurs and Manchester United, who play on Wednesday. Arsenal moved back into the Barclays Premier League top four as they edged out bottom club Leicester 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium. The result was harsh on Nigel Pearson’s side, showing plenty of industry for their under-fire manager, who came down from the director’s box to orchestrate the second-half recovery. Leicester, winless in 16 games against Arsenal since November 1994, had enjoyed a promising start as a deflected effort from Riyad Mahrez flew across the Arsenal six-yard box. There were alarm bells in the home penalty area again after 11 minutes when the Algerian forward burst clear down the right and fired a low shot through the legs of David Ospina, which flew just wide of the far post. Arsenal slowly built some sustained possession, with fit again Alexis Sanchez central to their positive momentum. In the 15th minute, Walcott latched onto a through pass from Mesut Ozil, but Foxes goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer was out quickly to make a smart block with his chest. Ozil, fit again following nearly three months out with a knee injury, played a neat exchange with Sanchez at the edge of the Leicester box, before stepping inside and sending a toe-poke shot towards the bottom right corner, which Schwarzer palmed away at full stretch. From the resulting corner, Arsenal took the lead after 27 minutes. Ozil floated the ball towards the near post, where Koscielny got clear of his marker to fire past the keeper from point-blank range.
