Michigan’s Clean Energy Goals Less Ambitious Than Reported

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Andy Balaskovitz for Midwest Energy News:Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder’s statewide 30 percent clean energy goal by 2025 wouldn’t necessarily expand renewable energy at all — a realization that was slow to reach the public, according to emails released earlier this month in relation to the Flint water crisis.As first reported by ClimateWire last week, a policy brief prepared for the governor’s office suggests that the media had been misreporting Snyder’s energy plan by saying a 30 percent clean energy goal could be met with a combination of renewables and energy efficiency.“If asked: the media has finally figured out that the 30% goal by 2025 language from your energy message that made it into legislation doesn’t actually involve building any more renewables,” according to the email.Full article: Flint emails shed light on Michigan governor’s energy strategy Michigan’s Clean Energy Goals Less Ambitious Than Reportedlast_img read more

Billy Hamilton

first_imgThe Reds have apparently parted ways with center fielder Billy Hamilton.  They did not offer him a contract for 2019.  Hamilton has been a candidate for a Golden Glove as a center fielder the last 5 years as a Cincinnati Red.There is no secret to why the Reds are willing to part with Hamilton.  He obliviously never learned how to get on base.  His speed was great as a center fielder, but in stolen bases he never reached his potential because he could only get on base approximately 30% of the time.  With who the Reds have available for next year, Hamilton was expendable.  He would have commanded a 4+million dollar contract, and I agree with the Reds that he was not worth it.I don’t know if it is Hamilton or the Reds who are responsible for Billy’s hitting woes, but he never really improved.  He has a loop in his batting style and this led to many pop ups and fly balls which became simple outs. I like Hamilton, but if you can’t hit, you can’t play major league baseball.last_img read more

Man Utd Wins Europa, Back in Champions League

first_imgManchester United beat Ajax 2-0 Wednesday night to win the Europa League and reach next season’s Champions League, thanks to goals from Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.Pogba scored with a deflected strike before Mkhitaryan’s close-range finish on an emotional night in Stockholm.There was recognition before the game of those killed in Monday’s attack in Manchester and United’s players wore black armbands in respect. United is the fifth side to win all three major European club competitions.Prior to this victory the Red Devils had won the European Cup on three occasions, in 1968, 1999 and 2008, and the Cup Winners’ Cup in 1991.Deprived of injured top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic, defenders Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw and the suspended Eric Bailly, Jose Mourinho’s side had to dig deep in their 64th and final game of this season.But their greater experience, coupled with an effective counter-attacking game plan, told against a youthful Ajax side who, with an average age of 22 years and 282 days, fielded the youngest starting XI in a major European final.United now joins champions Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester City in next season’s Champions League group stages, which will earn them about £50m in revenue.This also represents their second trophy of Mourinho’s debut season as United boss following their victory in the EFL Cup in February.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Sunshine Girls in re-building process – Minneth Reynolds

first_imgJamaica’s head coach of the senior netball team, Minneth Reynolds, says that the Netball World Series against New Zealand served as a learning process. Jamaica’s Sunshine Girls were swept by New Zealand’s’ Silver Ferns in the three-Test series in New Zealand that concluded on Sunday. New Zealand won the Taini Jamison Trophy with wins against Jamaica on September 11 by 72-34 at the Trafalgar Centre in Nelson; on September 14 by 38-61 at Central Energy Trust Arena, Palmerston North; and on September 17 by 66-38 at the Energy Events Centre in Rotorua. “It was a good learning experience for the ladies as it is the start of a rebuilding process,” Reynolds told The Gleaner on arrival at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston yesterday. “We are looking forward to improve as the gap is a lot wider, so it will take time,” she explained. “There were too many turnovers in the games. We knew that it would be tough, but we exposed the young players in the team,” Reynolds also said. INEXPERIENCED PLAYERS “We took a set of inexperienced players and started off losing badly in Game One, but improved in the other two games. We had eight players in New Zealand who were not part of the World Championship team last year in Australia, so we are rebuilding for the future,” the head coach pointed out. Sunshine Girls captain, Malysha Kelly, says despite the losses the team showed determination. “Well, basically as Jamaicans, we are determined and willing. We lapsed in the games due to inexperience. Also, there is a new rule of not having a time out (that) affected us,” Kelly said. “The top three teams have professional leagues, so we need regular competitions, even in the Caribbean,” she noted. Jamaica will next challenge England in a three-match series away in November. “We will go back to training in the next two weeks in preparation for the England series, as it is important as that will affect our ranking,” the captain further said. The players who returned include Vangelee Williams, Malysha Kelly, Vanessa Williams, Abbeygail Lynton, Kerry-Ann Brown, Rebecca Robinson, Adean Thomas, Shantal Slater, Nicole Dixon, Shanice Beckford and Shamera Sterling.last_img read more
