Getz, que ha servido como parlamentaria en la Cámara de Diputados desde 2003, anunció en las últimas horas del 25 de junio que se presentaría a la elección a la vicepresidencia de esa cámara.En un comunicado en su página de Facebook, Getz dijo que algunos líderes del grupo de diócesis que componen la VIII Provincia de la Iglesia Episcopal en el Oeste de Estados Unidos le habían pedido que aspirara al cargo.Ella aceptó, dijo, porque “la VIII Provincia merece más representación en los consejos de la Iglesia”.“Yo puedo aportar esa voz a la mesa”, agregó.Getz es la segunda persona laica que anuncia su intención de presentarse a la elección para la vicepresidencia de la Cámara. Sally Johnson, que ha sido siete veces diputada a la Convención General por la Diócesis de Minnesota, dio a conocer sus planes el 24 de junio.Johnson y Getz podrán participar en la elección vicepresidencial si un miembro del clero es electo a la presidencia de la Cámara de Diputados. El Canon I.1.1(b) requiere que el presidente y el vicepresidente sean de diferentes órdenes.Conocida por muchos en la Iglesia como “Polly”, Getz, de 59 años y diputada de la Diócesis de San Diego, ha servido en las últimas tres reuniones de la Convención General como consultora parlamentaria de la Cámara de Diputados. Comenzó en ese puesto en el 2003 en el primer período del Muy Rvdo. George Werner como presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, continuó con Werner en la convención del 2006 y siguió luego para servir con la presidente Bonnie Anderson en 2009. Ella ha de ser la consultora parlamentaria de Anderson para la reunión de la Convención en Indianápolis del 5 al 12 de julio.Getz dijo en su anuncio que su experiencia como consultora parlamentaria le ha dado “una visión interna así como una buena percepción de cómo funcionan las cosas”. Añadió que entiende “quienes somos y quienes podemos ser”.Getz, que ha vivido en las diócesis de California, Arizona, San Joaquín, San Diego y Texas Occidental, ha sido seis veces diputada a la Convención y encabezará la diputación laica de San Diego en Indianápolis.Getz, que es abogada, cerró recientemente su bufete Getz & Associates en Poway, California, una localidad al norte de San Diego, en el sur de California. Hizo esto, según le dijo en un correo electrónico a Episcopal News Service, para iniciar una nueva empresa con un cliente suyo de muchos años. LuminOre Copper Touch, una compañía fundada en 2011 rocía en frío algunos productos con cobre para crear superficies antimicrobianas. Getz es la vicepresidente ejecutiva y principal asesora legal de la empresa. Ella también presta servicios como vicecanciller de la Diócesis de San Diego.Getz es parte de una familia de cinco hermanos y es hija y hermana de sacerdotes episcopales. “Eso me ha dado una visión denominacional de nuestra familia en Cristo”, dijo ella en su anuncio.“El único ‘campo’ al que estoy afiliada es Camp Stevens, el campamento de nuestra diócesis que compartimos con Los Ángeles”, dijo Getz. “Tomo mis decisiones luego de devota consideración y no basada en una agenda. Desde luego no estoy implicando la conducta de nadie más, sólo diciendo ‘ésta soy yo’”.Getz cumplió 25 años de casada con Ron Enos el 27 de junio.Bonnie Anderson, la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, ha dicho que no le va a pedir a esta reunión de la Convención General que la elija para un tercer y último período como presidente. La elección de su sucesor[a] tendrá lugar el 10 de julio. Las nominaciones se harán el día 9, y esa noche habrá una recepción para “conocer a los nominados”.Hasta ahora, la Rda. Gay Jennings y Martha Bedell Alexander han anunciado su intención de presentarse a las elecciones por la presidencia.Las nominaciones para la vicepresidencia de la Cámara de Diputados se abrirán el 10 de julio y esa elección tendrá lugar al día siguiente, 11 de julio. Getz cumple 60 años el 10 de julio.El cargo de vicepresidente ha estado vacante desde el 15 de febrero de 2010 cuando Brian Prior, que había tenido ese puesto, fue consagrado obispo.En la sesión organizativa de la Cámara de Diputados el 5 de julio, la Cámara elegirá un vicepresidente para prestar servicios en lo que dura la 77ª. Convención General. El Muy Rdo. Scott Kirby, deán jubilado de la iglesia catedral de Cristo [Christ Church Cathedral] en Eau Claire, Wisconsin, y diputado por esa diócesis, ha aceptado ser nominado para servir como vicepresidente.

New Data Shows Big Oil’s Anti-E15 Test Lacks Real World Credibility

first_imgThe CRC test of eight vehicles (specifically selected for their presumed sensitivity to this testing protocol) found that three of the vehicles (37.5 percent) exceeded an arbitrary cylinder leakdown parameter while using E15.  Meanwhile, CRC tested only those three cars on clear gasoline, and one of those three vehicles (33 percent) also exceeded the arbitrary CRC criteria.  Had CRC tested the other five cars on clear gasoline they may have found additional vehicles that exceeded their arbitrary testing parameter. “To determine whether the arbitrary CRC testing parameter had real world implications, the IRFA did something that CRC refused to do,” stated IRFA Executive Director Monte Shaw.  “IRFA tested eight random vehicles on E10, a fuel utilized in over 95 percent of vehicles today.  After 35 years and trillions of miles, we know that E10 works in the real world.  To create the E10 baseline, IRFA tested cars that are driven every day – to work, to school, on summer vacations – with no performance issues.  If any of these vehicles exceeded the CRC criteria it would prove the arbitrary testing threshold cannot be used to predict real world operability. Three of the eight vehicles tested by IRFA did exceed the arbitrary testing threshold.  In fact, we just drove one of those three vehicles further than 1,000 miles.  If Big Oil were telling the truth then this vehicle would not have hauled us from Des Moines to DC – yet here it is.  You just can’t take Big Oil’s attacks seriously.” The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA) today released new testing data from vehicles driving in the real world that demonstrates Big Oil’s earlier Coordinating Research Council (CRC) testing on E15 has no real world implications.  To highlight the point, IRFA staff drove a vehicle that exceeded Big Oil’s arbitrary testing threshold for cylinder leakdown from Iowa to Washington, D.C.  Members of Congress, staff and media were invited to test drive the vehicle during an event on Capitol Hill. IRFA secured eight random “daily use” vehicles in Iowa that were driven on E10.  They were tested for cylinder leakdown by mechanics using the same procedure as the CRC used.  Of the eight vehicles tested by IRFA, three (37.5 percent) exceeded the arbitrary CRC testing parameter.  The owners of those three vehicles were quite surprised to learn they had been driving around a vehicle that Big Oil says should leave them stranded on the road. Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Oct 3, 2013 Facebook Twitter SHAREcenter_img Home Energy New Data Shows Big Oil’s Anti-E15 Test Lacks Real World Credibility New Data Shows Big Oil’s Anti-E15 Test Lacks Real World Credibility “Big Oil’s E15 testing lacks credibility at every level,” added Shaw.  “It lacks credibility on their vehicle selection.  It lacks credibility on their testing parameters.  It lacks creditability on real world implications.  And most importantly, Big Oil lacks credibility on how they used their biased results in an attempt to scare the public and policy makers regarding the use of E15.” Previous articleGrowers Report on First Experiences with the Enlist™ Weed Control SystemNext articleIndiana Grain On the Fast Track to Asia Gary Truitt SHARE Big Oil has spent months touting the results of a biased CRC test on vehicles utilizing E15, a 15 percent ethanol blend, and clear gasoline (no ethanol).  The CRC test was criticized by many experts for many reasons – notably for its arbitrary testing criteria and for its failure to test vehicles on E10.  Since 240 million vehicles routinely operate on E10 without performance issues in the real world, if vehicles running on E10 were also found to exceed the arbitrary testing threshold it would prove that CRC’s E15 testing program was fatally flawed.last_img read more

Support for bill to help reduce insurance costs

first_imgTwitter Texture photo created by freepik – www.freepik.comCASTLETROY representative of Aontú, Eric Nelligan welcomed cross-party support in the Dáil last week to his party’s motion to make it a statutory crime to commit perjury.Mr Nelligan spoke to the Limerick Post about the importance of making it illegal to lie under oath for personal gain. He believes that the financial consequences of perjury and fraudulent claims can be devastating to people’s lives and businesses.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “In some cases, resulting in people losing their livelihoods. A number of business in Limerick City and County have been unable to reopen since the easing of pandemic restrictions. We must do all we can to help and support businesses struggling in this current environment. We believe this bill will offer long-term financial savings,” Mr Nelligan commented.Aontú submitted their bill to the Dáil in partnership with the Regional Group of TDs. The bill seeks to penalise those who lie under oath for personal gain to help curb insurance costs which are continuing to spiral out of control.This bill was initiated by former Independent Senator Pádraig Ó Céidigh and received cross party support when it passed in the Seanad.Last week the motion received Government support to immediately establish the Dáil Select Committee on Justice and for Committee Stage of the Perjury and Related Offences Bill 2018 to be the first item of business on the agenda before October 31.“As soon as the committees are established, we ask our colleagues to pass this much needed legislation so that it can be swiftly signed into law. It sends a signal to all that lying under oath for personal gain is no longer acceptable.“Placing perjury on the statute books is not just about penalising those who commit perjury, it is about preventing those from doing it in the first place. Tough sanctions may make someone think twice about lying and diverting the course of justice,” Mr Nelligan said.

The Foundation understood that many first responders make do with older equipment and have limited or no access to needed resources. To date, the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has awarded more than $12 million to hometown heroes in 42 states and Puerto Rico. Next Up“The RTV will be used to get to fires that are not accessible using our current equipment,” Adkins said. “We respond to numerous fires in rural areas the we can’t get to with the equipment that we have so we have a great need for this piece of equipment.“The addition of the RTV provided by the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation grant will greatly enhance our efforts to protect lives and property from fire.”Adkins said the Brundidge Volunteer Fire Department is appreciative of the funding that will make the purchase of the RTV possible.

The relationship between water content and cold tolerance in the arctic collembolan Onychiurus arcticus (Collembola: Onychiuridae)

first_imgThe arctic collembolan Onychiurus arcticus is freezing intolerant and experiences temperatures below -25°C during winter periods of low air temperatures and only light snow cover. Summer-collected individuals have a mean (±SE) supercooling point of -6.1 ± 0.1°C. This study was designed to measure the desiccation resistance and subsequent recovery of O. arcticus from partial dehydration and relate these to its cold-hardiness in terms of changes in the supercooling point (SCP) and solute concentration. Drying curves measured with a recording microbalance showed two distinct phases characteristic of the loss of free and chemically bound (osmotically inactive) water. Rates of water loss at 0°C and low relative humidity (< 5%) were similar to those measured for Antarctic Collembola (5% h-1 of the initial total water content). O. arcticus survived losses of 40% of its total body water content and recovered within 36 h but could not survive losses of 50% of its original water content. Differential scanning calorimetry was used to investigate the nature of the body water, i.e. the proportion of freezable to unfreezable water and the nucleation temperature. The melt onset temperature correlated positively with the body water content. But no clear relationship was seen between the water content and the SCP, either because the springtails had low levels of cryoprotectants or because the ice nucleation activity was unaffected. However, long periods (7 months) at -2.5°C reduced the water content from 74 ± 10.1 to 43 ± 7.2% of fresh weight and lowered the SCP from -6.1 ± 2.1 to -15.5 ± 2.3°C. When given access to water these individuals re-gained their body weight within 24 h. During periods of desiccation water losses were attributed to the loss of freezable water with the unfreezable portion remaining almost constant at 16.5 ± 2.0%. It appears that O. arcticus may experience a reduction of body water during winter periods of sub-zero temperatures, which may lower its SCP and enhance its cold tolerance but that it can rapidly return to summer levels given access to free water during the spring melt.last_img read more

Petrobras makes oil discovery in Uirapuru block, Santos Basin

first_img Petrobras reports oil discovery in offshore Uirapuru block.

The drilling campaign targeted carbonate reservoirs at final depths of nearly 5900m.Petrobras, which is the operator of the Uirapuru block with 30% stake, plans to analyse the well data to better target the exploratory activities in the region and also for assessing the potential of the oil discovery.Brief details of the Uirapuru blockThe Uirapuru concession was acquired in the 4th Production Sharing Round in June 2018 under a production sharing regime with Pré-sal Petróleo (PPSA) as manager.Petrobras is partnered in the Santos Basin block by ExxonMobil (28%), Equinor (28%), and Petrogal (14%), a subsidiary of Galp.The Uirapuru block spans across 1,285 km2 in the pre-salt polygon in the Santos basin, 175 km from shore, at water depths in the range of 800-2,100m. The concession is located immediately to the north of the Carcara pre-salt development, which is operated by Equinor.Earlier this week, Petrobras said that it will implement new actions to strengthen its group’s resilience amid the falling demand of oil and oil products. For this, the Brazilian oil major will reduce its oil production by 200,000 barrels per day, postpone cash disbursement and reduce its costs among other measures.
