May 5, 2014 Max Hall Finance Installations Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share German solar manufacturer Hanwha Q Cells – part of the South Korean Hanwha Group – supplied more than 58,000 of its modules for a 15 MW solar farm installed in the U.K. in March. The Thalheim-based manufacturer supplied Q.PRO-G3 modules for the Ellough project developed by Lark Energy in Suffolk. Solar developer Lark is part of the East Midlands-based Larkfleet construction and development group. The UK is being seen as a growth market after the publication of a new solar strategy by the government’s Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) last month.

Manafort trial opens with fiery charges from both sides

first_imgABC News(WASHINGTON) — Lawyers in the case of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort offered opening arguments on Tuesday in the first major trial brought by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and both sides told jurors there was a liar at the heart of the case.The government’s lawyers argued that liar was Manafort, a man they alleged had been living an opulent lifestyle, as if he was “above the law.” In his opening statement, federal prosecutor Uzo Asonye said the case, “boils down to one thing: Did Paul Manafort lie?”Manafort’s defense team countered by pointing a finger at the prosecution’s star witness – and Manafort’s former deputy — Richard Gates.Gates, a longtime business associate of Manafort and a onetime senior Trump campaign aide, pleaded guilty in February to two felony counts: conspiracy against the U.S. and lying to federal authorities. Since then, Gates has cooperated with the special counsel and met with Mueller’s attorneys on multiple occasions, sources have told ABC News.“Rick Gates had his hands in the cookie jar and he didn’t want his boss to find out,” said defense lawyer Thomas Zehnle told the court, accusing Gates of being “willing to say anything to save himself.”The sharp words marked a dramatic opening to the trial, in keeping with the notoriously fast-moving Eastern District Court of Virginia, which lawyers often refer to as home to the “rocket docket.” Judge T.S. Ellis said he planned to keep the trial moving, telling the legal teams he expected witnesses to begin taking the stand before the first trial day was done.After seating a dozen jurors –six men and six women– and four alternates by early Tuesday afternoon, Judge Ellis called on the attorneys to deliver their opening argument.“The evidence will show that he knowingly filed false tax returns,” Asonye said, accusing Manafort of lying to the IRS and his “bookkeepers” in order to hide millions of dollars from his work in Ukraine.Asonye, who described Manafort’s “lavish lifestyle” in detail, alleged that Manafort held more than 30 bank accounts that “served no business purpose other than to receive and hide income.”Manafort’s defense countered that the true culprit in the case is not Manafort, but Gates. Zehnle, one of Manafort’s attorneys, said Manafort’s only mistake was trusting his former business partner.“It’s about Mr. Manafort placing his trust in the wrong person,” Zehnle said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Barry dumping more rain as flood worries continue

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — Barry hit the Louisiana coastline at a Category 1 hurricane with 75 mph winds but then returned to being a tropical storm, leaving behind massive flooding throughout parts of the state.The highest rainfall total, about a foot, was seen in southwestern Louisiana. A 7-foot storm surge was reported in Amerada Pass.On Monday morning, with more than 50,000 customers in Louisiana still without power, Barry was weakening fast while centered over Arkansas.Tropical moisture from the Gulf of Mexico is forecast to keep streaming north into the Mississippi River Valley.Flood alerts were issued across eight states on Monday as more heavy rain is expected.Barry is unlikely to move much heading into Monday night, meaning more flash flooding is expected closer to the storm’s current location.The center of what’s left of Barry should move into the Midwest by Tuesday evening, with heavy rains expected from Tennessee into Illinois and Indiana.Over the next two to three days, some parts of Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee could get an additional 6 to 10 inches of rain. Flash flooding and river flooding are expected.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Police exhaust all leads, ask for new tips in unsolved Chicago neighborhood murders

first_imgChicago Police Department(CHICAGO) — One year after two “senseless” killings took place in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood, police say they’ve exhausted all leads and are turning to the public to help generate more tips. In the first attack, on Sept. 30, 2018, a gunman shot and killed 72-year-old Douglass Watts, according to ABC Chicago station WLS-TV. The next day, just blocks away, Eliyahu Moscowitz, was shot and killed. The “brazenness of this case galvanized our community,” Robert Cesario, commander of Chicago police area north detectives, said at a news conference on Tuesday.No motive has been established, Cesario said. The suspect was caught on camera, believed to be wearing a mask during the first shooting.Hundreds of leads have come in, Cesario said, but all active leads have been “exhausted.” “Someone has information,” Cesario said. “We need you to do the right thing and call police.” A $150,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible, Cesario said. Anyone with information is asked to call 312-744-8261.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Nicola Sturgeon calls for ‘four nation’ Brexit negotiating team

first_imgScottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon called for a “cross-party, all-government approach” to Brexit negotiations, the Guardian reported Monday.“The Tories’ hard Brexit plan has been rejected and we cannot allow the Brexit negotiations to become hostage to the inability of either the Tories or Labour to command a clear majority,” Sturgeon said. Instead, she advocated an approach “that is backed by all parties and all governments across the U.K.”Sturgeon was in London Monday to meet with her Scottish National Party MPs in Westminster. The SNP lost 21 seats and more than a quarter of its vote share in last week’s election. The result effectively pushes the prospect of a second referendum on independence from the U.K. — central to the party’s mission — off the political map. While Sturgeon is a vocal proponent of staying in the single market, her Conservative rival Ruth Davidson advocated “an open Brexit, not a closed one, which puts our country’s economic growth first,” hinting that she may oppose the Conservatives’ hard Brexit stance.Brexit negotiations are set to begin on June 19.

Fletcher Allen’s stroke program again earns Quality Award from American Stroke Association

first_imgFletcher Allen Health Care’s Stroke Center has received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s ‘Get With The Guidelines’ Silver Achievement award for its success in providing excellent care for stroke patients according to evidence-based guidelines. ‘This award highlights our commitment to being one of the top hospitals in the country for providing aggressive, proven stroke care,’said Mark Gorman, MD, director of the Fletcher Allen Stroke Program, and University of Vermont associate professor of Neurology. ‘We’re honored to receive this additional validation that our expert Stroke Center staff provides best-practice care that saves lives and improves patient outcomes.’These measures include aggressive use of medications such as t-PA (a protein designed to dissolve blood clots), antithrombotics (such as aspirin), anticoagulation (coumadin) therapy where appropriate, cholesterol-reducing drugs and smoking cessation –  all aimed at reducing death and disability and improving the lives of stroke patients. Stroke is the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. and the primary cause of long-term disability. The Stroke Center team has been regularly recognized by the ‘Get with the Guidelines’program since 2008, and has been classified as a Primary Stroke Center by The Joint Commission, the nation’s leading organization for setting health care quality standards. About Fletcher AllenFletcher Allen Health Care, together with our partners at the University of Vermont College of Medicine and the College of Nursing and Health Sciences, is Vermont’s academic medical center.

Three wetlands recognized with ‘Class I’ designation: Sandbar, Dennis Pond, Chickering Fen

first_imgThe Sandbar Wetlands in Milton and Colchester is located at the mouth of the Lamoille River along Lake Champlain. The floodplain forests and open marshes are exceptional for flood storage, water quality protection, and fish and wildlife habitat and will soon receive Class I status under the Vermont Wetland Rules. ANR photo.Vermont Business Magazine Three unique Vermont wetlands are now being classified as ‘Class I’ wetlands, a designation that places extra protections on wetlands with exceptional ecological features. The three wetlands receiving Class I designations are the Sandbar wetlands (Milton and Colchester), Dennis Pond wetlands (Brunswick), and Chickering Fen (Calais).These are the first wetlands to be granted Class I status in over a decade. Only three other wetlands have been assigned Class I status: Dorset Marsh in Dorset, Northshore Wetland in Burlington, and Tinmouth Channel Wetland in Tinmouth.“These wetlands were conserved years ago in recognition of the value they provide in protecting fish and wildlife habitat, buffering our communities against the devastating impacts of floods, and improving water quality for drinking or swimming,” said Emily Boedecker, Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation. “The Class I designation memorializes their value by ensuring that the simple pleasure of spending quiet time observing nature in these treasured places is protected for all Vermonters, today and into the future.”Though most wetlands exhibit substantial levels of plant and wildlife diversity, Class I wetlands are granted additional protections from encroaching development because of their exceptional or irreplaceable values.The Department encourages the public to enjoy these areas, but to do so at appropriate times of year and through established trails or observation areas. Spring and early summer are the time of year when many wetland-dependent wildlife such as wood ducks, herons, osprey, bitterns, marsh wrens and many more are nesting, laying eggs, and rearing young. It is important to avoid disturbing wildlife in wetlands during this time of year. If you are visiting, consider the following information to respectfully access and observe wildlife at these wetlands:The Sandbar wetland complex is mostly designated as a wildlife refuge by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department. In the refuge area, public access is prohibited. However, good viewing opportunities are available at several locations along Route 2(link is external) in Milton and from Sand Bar State Park. Additionally, people can use canoes or kayaks to paddle along the perimeter of the refuge and down the Lamoille River to observe wildlife from the water. Boats can be rented from Sand Bar State Park(link is external). The 1,100-acre wetland complex includes stands of wild rice and one of the largest and best-condition examples of the uncommon Lakeside Floodplain Forest natural community type in the state.The Chickering Fen wetland, wholly owned by The Nature Conservancy, is accessed via an easy one-mile hiking trail(link is external) ending in a boardwalk into the wetland. Good times to visit the fen include May and June when unusual fen wildflowers can be found, and late October when the tamarack surrounding the fen turns bright yellow. The hike itself also features views of other wetlands, conifer forest, and a rich forest with spring wildflowers. Please remain on the boardwalk when viewing the wetland to avoid harming the sensitive fen vegetation. The trail crosses private property, so please do not enter areas marked as No Trespassing.The Dennis Pond wetland can be explored either from the land or via canoe or kayak. This wetland supports ecosystems usually found in colder areas to the north of Vermont, with spruce-fir forest, large expanses of bog, and frequent moose sightings. Access is available via Route 102 and Dennis Pond Road(link is external) in Brunswick. The bog is best viewed by boat to prevent trampling of sensitive plants. The site can also be accessed in the winter from a VAST trail on the west end of the wetland basin. Be aware that some of the Dennis Pond basin includes areas of private land. Please respect No Trespassing signs.Class I designations occur as part of a robust public process to make updates and changes to the Vermont Wetland Rules, which govern protections on wetlands. Amendments can be initiated by the Agency or through a petition to the Agency. The three wetlands nominated for Class I designations were included in the updated set of rules approved in January 2017. The updates became effective April 1.Other revisions to the wetlands rule included increasing the public noticing period for permit applications by 5-15 days, and outlining a clearer permit amendment process.To learn more about Class I designations and how you may help protect these vital resources, visit the Vermont Wetlands Program website at: http://dec.vermont.gov/watershed/wetlands.htm(link is external)Source: ANR 4.5.2017last_img read more

Kansas State Board of Education candidates on the issues: Curriculum standards and inclusivity

first_imgLast month, we asked our readers what issues they wanted to hear the candidates running for office address ahead of November’s general election. Based on the input we received, we developed a five-item questionnaire for candidates running for Kansas State Board of Education District 2.We’ll be publishing the candidates’ responses to one item per day each day this week. Today we’re publishing the candidates’ responses to item #2:Describe the proper role of the state board of education in setting curriculum standards for the state’s schools. Is there a need for the curriculum to be more reflective and inclusive of groups that have been marginalized in the past?Melanie Haas (Democrat)In Kansas, curriculum standards – which are signed off on by the State Board of Education – are updated at least every seven years. That’s a long cycle! Our standards for social studies and history were just updated last year, via a process involving a diverse panel of educators from various districts across the state. These approved standards are guidance. School districts are then independently responsible for writing their own curriculum to meet the recommended standards.I fully support the role of public education as a vehicle for broadening a child’s cultural awareness and inclusion of diversity in our society. It is incumbent upon our public schools to provide a curriculum that highlights the richness and diversity of the human race. My hope is that if this is done properly, students will grow to embrace the many things that make us different from one another instead of using those same traits as an excuse for prejudice and discrimination.Benjamin Hodge (Republican)Did not respond.Tomorrow we’ll publish the candidates’ responses to item #3:The state board of education has in the past debated whether it’s appropriate to teach the concept of intelligent design along with theory of evolution. What are your views on what should and should not be taught to Kansas students in this regard?last_img read more
