The first pass, which wrapped up Monday, has resulted in the hauling away of more than 80,000 cubic yards of broken trees, limbs and other debris.Completing the “first pass” means that contractors have picked up much — but not all — of the debris. A second pass will begin immediately throughout the City to collect from locations not included in the first pass. This will include “mixed piles” of debris and other materials as well as debris placed in locations where contractors could not make a swift and efficient pickup.Contractor CrowderGulf has nine large trucks and two trailers working in Apopka. Four bucket trucks are cutting down hanging branches and damaged trees above public roads and right-of-way areas. In many cases, the “hangers” are placed on curbs to await pickup from storm-debris haulers. The city also is operating claw trucks to assist with pickups.It is important for residents to place any remaining storm debris in the right of way, between the curb and the sidewalk. Avoid placing debris in the street, near mailboxes, fire hydrants, or on top of water mains or electric transformers or underneath power lines or cable wires. Do not mix tree and plant debris with other waste materials – separate those items into different piles.Contractor crews will use the second pass to help with construction debris like privacy fence piles. They will cut up fallen and leaning trees near or above city roads or rights of way.City trucks started Monday’s collection route of bulky items – bagged waste, furniture, etc. – along Plymouth-Sorrento Road, Lester Road and into the Errol Estates community. Large amounts of bulky waste are slowing collections, but the city expects to return to a normal schedule soon.Crews also are working Saturday and Sunday to expedite cleanup.Keep in mind:• Please make every effort to keep the street clear of parked cars when debris crews are in your area.• Please help to keep storm drains clear. Residents can help aid the debris collection by sweeping up loose leaves and debris after each pass.• Please keep bagged leaves & debris, construction debris, fencing, furniture, appliances or anything else separated from hurricane tree debris piles. This will help with the disposal process.Collected storm debris is transported to a large field at the edge of the Northwest Recreation Complex off of Appy Lane. This area is for contracted vehicles only.Photo from the City of Apopka Facebook page.last_img read more

The +Energy House lies down as a flat structure on the sloping site and forms at the upper floor a platform that connects inside and outside together and offers a magnificent view of the countryside. The formal language acts independently and confidently. Simultaneously, the two-storey construction comunicates with the surroundings of the street (building line, roof shape, eaves height). Save this picture!© Eibe SönneckenThe house was created as a mixed construction: concrete construction on the ground floor, solid wood construction upstairs. The construction with dowelled laminated timber elements could be entirely built without glues (clients request: pollution-free construction, ecological building materials). The surfaces remain aware undisguised. Save this picture!© Eibe SönneckenBeside its static funcion, this inner shell ensures a balanced room climate. The wooden wall has a heat storage capacity that comes close from that of conventional masonry structures. According to the passive house standard, a layer of insulation (wood fibers) surrounds the construction upstairs. The airtight, thermal-bridge-free trained, heat-insulated shell is made up of the bottom plate (foam glass gravel). Save this picture!© Eibe SönneckenThe facade of the first floor is tightly butted with profiles from Siberian larch, a by-product from the production of window profiles, that here was recycled. On the south roof are located photovoltaic modules. This additional component of the passive house can be used as +Energy House. Save this picture!© Eibe SönneckenThe building has a ventilation system with heat recovery. The result is a cozy space (apartment on the ground floor, main house upstairs) that benefits from the simple, hand-crafted details, but especially from the view through huge windows. The most spectacular view opens up a large window to the north, what was the greatest challenge in terms of passive house construction. The north oriented openings in passive houses are ideally keep low to reduce heat loss, so here, instead the triple glazing solution of the other windows, a window has been designed and built with quadruple glazing. In addition, all windows are glass-on-frame constructions, making them appear frameless, and are mostly installed flush on the outside, so they act as an inlay in the wooden structure and emphasize the shape of the building.

Congressional Ag Leaders Applaud Tax Bill Passage

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Congressional Ag Leaders Applaud Tax Bill Passage Facebook Twitter SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Dec 21, 2017 Source: NAFB News Service SHAREcenter_img Leaders of the House and Senate Agriculture Committees say the just-passed tax bill delivers lower taxes for farmers and ranchers. House Ag Chair Mike Conaway says, “From lower marginal rates to the treatment of pass-through income to improved small business expensing, this bill delivers for farmers, ranchers and all rural America.” Meanwhile, Senate Agriculture Chairman Pat Roberts says the legislation “impacts every single American,” offering a fairer, simpler tax code. For farmers, Roberts says the bill creates a “much more pro-growth tax system,” lowering the tax burden on farmers and ranchers. The bill also doubles the exemptions from the estate tax up to $22 million per couple. Not all agree, however, that the bill will benefit farmers and ranchers. The partisan bill was not supported by Democrats. Further, the bill will deliver near-term benefits to farmers, but many of the ag-important provisions are temporary. The National Farmers Union says the bill  ultimately provides handouts for the wealthy that “will be paid for by family farmers, ranchers, the lower and middle classes, and our future generations.” The American Farm Bureau Federation applauded the bill, and stated AFBF will now focus on making those important tax deductions, lower rates and the estate tax exemption permanent.”Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue calls the recently passed tax reform bill a “once-in-a-generation” reform of the federal tax code. Calling tax reform an eagerly awaited Christmas present for taxpayers, Perdue says “tax paying people of American agriculture need relief.” In his statement, Perdue offered thanks to President Trump and commended Congress for passage of the legislation. He says most family farms are run as a small business, and that they “should be able to keep more of what they earn to reinvest in their operations and take care of their families.” Perdue says that simplifying the tax code and easing the burden on citizens will free them up to make choices for themselves, create jobs, and boost the overall American economy.

Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar Signatories :- Adem Demaçi (1991 Sakharov Prize winner)- Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo (1992 Sakharov Prize winner)- Oslobodjenje (1993 Sakharov Prize winner)- Taslima Nasreen (1994 Sakharov Prize winner)- Leyla Zana (1995 Sakharov Prize winner)- Wei Jingsheng (1996 Sakharov Prize winner)- Salima Ghezali (1997 Sakharov Prize winner)- Dom Zacarias Kamwenho (2001 Sakharov Prize winner)- Nurit Peled-Elhanan (2001 Sakharov Prize winner)- Oswaldo José Payá Sardinas (2002 Sakharov Prize winner)- Belarus Association of Journalists – BAJ (2004 Sakharov Prize winner)- Women in White (2005 Sakharov Prize winner)- Hauwa Ibrahim (2005 Sakharov Prize winner)- Reporters Without Borders (2005 Sakharov Prize winner)- Alexander Milinkevich (2006 Sakharov Prize winner)- Salih Mahmoud Mohamed Osman (2007 Sakharov Prize winner) Receive email alerts US journalist held in Yangon prison notorious for torture News Follow the news on Myanmar May 31, 2021 Find out more RSF_en News May 15, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Sakharov Network calls for immediate release of Aung San Suu Kyi, Sakharov Prize laureate 1990 Organisation to go further The members of the Sakharov Network protest against the imprisonment of fellow Sakharov Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi, the leader of Burma’s pro-democracy opposition, who has been under house arrest since May 2003 and who was jailed today. She and the two women who live with her were taken to Insein prison in a north Rangoon suburb today because, according to military officials, they violated the terms of her house arrest by allowing an American citizen to gain access to her home. Her trial is to begin on Monday.“Our thoughts go out to our Burmese colleague and those close to her,” the Sakharov Network members said. “Being kept under house arrest for more than 13 years was tantamount to real imprisonment and could no longer be tolerated. We had hoped this outrageous situation would be over on 27 May, when her house arrest sentence was due to end, but it is now clear that the current manoeuvres are designed to prolong her illegal and unjust imprisonment.“We urge European officials, especially the Czech government, current holder of the European Union’s rotating presidency, to take all necessary measures to obtain our fellow Sakharov laureate’s release and the release of all of Burma’s political prisoners. The Sakharov laureates will remain on alert and are ready to support all mediation efforts that could result in her being freed. Aung San Suu Kyi must know that she is not alone and that it is high time that we were reunited with her.”Aged 63, Aung San Suu Kyi was treated for hypotension and dehydration last week. She has spent more than 13 of the last 19 years in prison or under house arrest, held incommunicado and unable to make phone calls. Her mail is opened and her visits are restricted.Her party, the National League for Democracy, recently conditioned its participation in the 2010 elections on the release of Aung San Suu Kyi and the thousands of political prisoners.

Reporters attacked while covering protests against Covid-19 measures in Italy

first_img “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says Organisation After nine journalists were harassed and attacked while covering protests against Covid-19 lockdown measures in Italy in the past two weeks, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) urges the country’s politicians to firmly condemn such violence and calls on the authorities to provide the media with effective protection in the field.

Follow the news on Europe – Central Asia The threats and acts of violence occurred during demonstrations in several cities in protest against the new measures that the authorities adopted in mid-October to combat a second wave of Covid-19 cases.The victims included Valerio Lo Muzio, a video reporter for the newspaper La Repubblica, who was targeted in Bologna on 30 October by far-right protesters. They threatened and surrounded him, chanting “journalists, terrorists” and “shitty journalists,” and finally forced him to flee.Both insults and bottles were hurled at journalists in Genoa on 26 and 28 October, to the point that police asked them to stop filming and leave the area in order to avoid any escalation in the violence.There were several attacks against reporters in Palermo when a regional 11 pm – 5 am curfew was introduced there. After reporting from the scene of a peaceful protest by a crowd of restaurant owners on the evening of 24 October, Rai Sicilia TV reporter Raffaella Cosentino and her cameraman were called “terrorists” and were threatened by three men without face masks who were linked to the far-right group Forza Nuova. Cosentino and her colleague ended up having to leave.Two other protests were held almost simultaneously four days later. The first, which mainly involved Forza Nuova members and pandemic deniers, led to clashes with the police. Two journalists working for the Rai 2 news programme TG2, reporter Vincenzo Frenda and cameraman Ninni Farina, were threatened with being beaten by men who stole their microphone and microphone boom.In the second demonstration, which was organized by civil society groups in  protest against the crisis’s impact on workers and which also degenerated into a clash with police, Michele Schillaci, an agency cameraman working for Mediaset, sustained an ear injury when a firecracker exploded next to his head.Finally, Sky Tg24 reporter Paolo Fratter and cameramen Vincenzo Triente and Fabio Giulianelli were pushed and hit by protesters during a live broadcast from the scene of clashes in Naples on 23 October between police and protesters against the curfew introduced in the Campania region. Fratter was slammed against the hood of a car while Giulianelli’s leg was injured when hit by one of the stones that were thrown.“During a public health, economic and social crisis of this scale, journalists should be more than ever able to cover the situation,” said Pavol Szalai, the head of RSF’s European Union and Balkans desk. “But the media are the targets of systematic violence that is intensifying by the day. We call on all Italian politicians to firmly condemn these attacks and we urge the police to provide journalists in the field with real, constant protection.”Italy is not the only European country to see this kind of violence against the media. In Austria, journalists were threatened and attacked in Vienna on 26 October, while police looked on without intervening. In Germany, state media and journalists, including Tagesspiegel reporter Julius Geiler, were threatened by “corona-sceptic” protesters in Berlin on 25 October. In a sign of the worsening climate for the media in the Netherlands, state TV channel NOS was forced to remove its logo from its vehicles on 15 October after repeated threats and verbal attacks on identifiable employees.Italy is ranked 41st out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index, Austria is ranked 18th, Germany is ranked 11th and the Netherlands is ranked 5th.

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Business News Make a comment Although the City Council told City Manager Steve Mermell it wants affordable housing in the YWCA project, the City Manager won’t reveal if any developers have been removed from the process.“It is in the best interests of the City not to comment on this question,” Mermell told Pasadena Now, when asked if the list of potential developers had been narrowed down, and if there was favored project.The project could come before the council later this month.According to Mermell, the Council gave direction to staff to continue negotiations regarding the price and terms of payment as to the proposals for the YWCA and civic center.On Monday housing activists were scheduled to gather for a vigil outside of the dilapidated building and prayed near the busts of Jackie and Mack Robinson.“Although the political prospects are looking good, it is imperative that we have a huge turnout when the Civic Center comes up for a vote in February, and make sure we flood the City Council with letters,” said housing advocate Anthony Manousos.Pasadena is experiencing an affordable housing crisis. Over half (56 percent) of Pasadena residents reportedly are renters.In the past five years, the median rent for a two-bedroom apartment has increased from $2,139 to $2,695, according to Zillow.Of the five proposals only two have an affordable housing element.Continental Assets Management in Arcadia proposed a four-star 167 hotel room, either a five-story 120 room market-rate unit building or a six-story 139 affordable housing unit is proposed at the Water and Power site.The Ratkovich Company with the National Community Renaissance in Los Angeles is proposing two alternatives.The first would call for rehabbing the building for office space. The second option calls for the rehabilitation of the building with construction of a new 59,000 square foot office building, or rehabbing the building and building a 142-room hotel.On the PWP property, permanent supportive housing or permanent supportive housing and 15,000 square feet of leasable office space is proposed by Ratkovich.The other proposals included a 125-150 full-service Four Seasons hotel at the YWCA site along with 25 luxury residences at the former Water and Power site by Carpenter and Company of Boston.A proposal by Edgewood Realty Partners from nearby South Pasadena would see a 164-room boutique hotel operated by Palisociety and a 70,000 square foot, five-story office building is proposed for the Water and Power site.New Orleans-based HRI Properties LLC would create a 179-room hotel, of which 165 rooms would be in a new 83,000-square-foot building adjacent to the YWCA.

Massachusetts AG Sues Fannie/Freddie Over Buyback Programs

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Massachusetts AG Sues Fannie/Freddie Over Buyback Programs Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley has sued the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) and mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, alleging the companies’ refusal to engage in foreclosure buybacks programs is “unfairly and illegally causing Massachusetts families to lose their homes.”Filed Monday in Suffolk Superior Court, the Massachusetts AG’s suit alleges that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac refuse to comply with an August 2012 state law.Buyback programs, in this instance, are used by non-profit organizations to buy a foreclosed property to resell it back to the original owner at a more affordable price. The aforementioned state law prohibits creditors from blocking such programs.The recently-filed suit alleges the two GSEs have failed to comply with the law due to policies that prohibit property sales to non-profits in order to resell the property to the original homeowner.”It makes no sense for our federal government to stand in the way of this work to help struggling families stay in their homes, and it is illegal for Fannie and Freddie to do this in Massachusetts,” Coakley said. “For too long, Fannie and Freddie have been roadblocks to progress in addressing this foreclosure crisis, and I urge them to immediately reverse their policy on this common-sense program.”One example cited in the complaint is Boston Community Capital’s Stabilizing Urban Neighborhoods (SUN) Initiative. The program buys back foreclosed, REO properties at present market value and sells them back to homeowners.”Buyback programs like SUN prevent needless displacement of families that through an arrangement with a non-profit can afford to stay in their homes. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have continued to block buybacks even though they lose money in the process,” the AG’s office said in a release.Representatives for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac offered no comment, citing pending litigation.
