A six-ticket race was whittled down to two potential platforms to represent the Notre Dame student body when Wednesday’s election resulted in a runoff between juniors Alex Coccia and Nancy Joyce and juniors Dominic Romeo and Philip Hootsmans. Following last night’s runoff debate, Coccia said he and Joyce plan to go into today’s election with the momentum gathered from student support for their ticket. “We have really been honored by the excitement and enthusiasm behind our campaign,” Coccia said. “Going door-to-door in the dorms has really opened our eyes to the breadth and depth of interests within the student body, and we would be very excited to turn those ideas into action once within student government.” As part of one of the two tickets involved in the runoff election, Romeo said he and Hootsmans will continue to advocate for a more representative student government by promoting their vision to the student body. “Since the beginning of this process, Phil and I have believed that our platform and ideals align with what our Notre Dame student body wants: a student government that represents our collective desires and advocates for our collective needs,” Romeo said. “To make it into the runoff … means that our student body not only agrees with such a vision but believes that we have the capacity to make such a vision a reality.” For the candidates who missed the runoff election, the results represented the culmination of concerted campaign efforts. After campaigning on the strength of their five combined years of student government experience, junior Michael Masi and sophomore Tim Scanlan said they were honored to have had the opportunity to promote their vision for the Notre Dame family throughout the election process. “It is a humbling experience to have represented the Notre Dame family in this election. Words cannot express how much inspiration students, family and friends have provided me throughout my time at Notre Dame,” Masi said. As students voting in today’s election, Masi said he and Scanlan believe the Romeo-Hootsmans ticket emphasizes values common with those espoused by their own platform. “It is my belief that the Romeo-Hootsmans ticket best shares the vision and ideals Tim and I set out for student government,” Masi said. “Their willingness to listen to students, work with others and unite the Notre Dame family together as one is truly admirable.” Despite an outcome not in their favor, sophomores Billy Christy and Pat Roemer said the election demonstrated the commitment of their supporters to campaign on their behalf. “It’s meant a lot to both of us that we have so many friends willing to sacrifice their time and go out of their ways to help us,” Christy said. “We’re really humbled that hundreds of people thought that we were the guys for the job and could not be prouder of everyone’s work.” Moving forward, Christy said he and Roemer support Romeo and Hootsmans to lead the Notre Dame student body next year. For freshmen Austin O’Brien and Nick Boggess, their candidacy shows promise for the future of student government at Notre Dame. “Although I will not have the opportunity to serve in student government as president, I am hopeful that I will be able to serve in another capacity,” O’Brien said. After progressing through the election process, O’Brien said he “fully endorses” Coccia and Joyce in today’s election. “Alex is an approachable, strong leader who has experience uniting the campus while fighting for student rights,” he said. In the wake of allegations of election violations against other tickets, freshmen Kevin Salat and Paul Mascarenhas said the outcome of the election leaves them with one voting option in the runoff election. “Our endorsement can only go to one position in this runoff election due to the way things turned out, and that’s to the ‘abstain’ vote,” Salat said. “We refuse to support any candidates that allegedly violated campaign rules and do not want to advocate supporting student government in any way.” Runoff election voting will be open via email today from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Request the high-res image: please include format, size and res. “Poinsettias can be found in strong white, creamy white, light pink, solid pink, bright orange-red, deep purple-red and traditional red,” said Paul Thomas, an Extension Service horticulturist with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “There are speckled and marbled varieties, too.” Of the new colors, Thomas said, shoppers favor the white varieties, especially Gutbier V-17 Angelika White. It has large bracts and is a big, vigorous plant. Shoppers are split on pink poinsettias. “The pinks seem to be a tossup,” he said. “People either love them or hate them.” He recommends “Pelfi Flirt” to people who fancy pink. “The speckled poinsettias come from two cell types that create natural variegations,” Thomas said. “The marbled varieties are more smoothly blended and look as if an artist painted on the bracts.” Not all of the new poinsettia colors survived. “About four years ago, a yellow variety called Lemon Drop was released,” said Thomas. “Consumers said, ‘Yuck, that’s not a Christmas color, and we don’t want it.'” Despite the new colors, red still ranks highest in poinsettia sales. “A typical greenhouse propagates hundreds of reds and only dozens of the other varieties,” Thomas said. “The marketing surveys show that people still prefer red, and 90 percent of the poinsettias sold are red varieties.” Thomas said the new variegated and marbled varieties may be hard to find, but not impossible. “You can call your local greenhouse or florist to search for a new variety such as the marbled poinsettias,” he said. S. Omahen, UGA CAES The bright red and deep green colors of poinsettias have become a traditional part of the holiday season. But what if red and green don’t suit your fancy? No problem. Poinsettia breeders have now given shoppers many more choices than just red. DON’T WANT RED POINSETTIAS? Plant breeders have heard you and now the holiday plants come in many shades of pink, white, yellow, orange-red and purple-red with speckled and marbled varieties, too. But you want to mix red in with your new colors? Not a problem:ÿ surveys show 90 percent of the poinsettias sold in Georgia are red.

Connecticut Will Demolish Its Last Coal-Fired Power Plant FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Mike Patrick for the Waterbury Republican-American:Two years after disputing a report that its days were numbered, owners of the last coal-fired power plant in the state plan to demolish the facility and build a $550 million natural gas-fired power plant in its place.That’s according to Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim’s office. Ganim, along with U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., and Rep. Jim Himes, D-4th District, praised the plan by PSEG Power Connecticut as one that will provide cleaner energy, more jobs and add millions to the city’s tax base.Others eye the development cautiously.In Oxford, the leader of a citizen group against the building of a power plant there said the new Bridgeport plant just a half-hour or so away wouldn’t deter efforts to build what he said is an unneeded and dangerous facility in his Naugatuck Valley town.And a woman restoring Civil War-era houses near the Bridgeport plant said the issue again raises long-standing concerns about environmental justice in the mostly poor, minority neighborhood.The plan is for PSEG to begin construction of the gas-fired facility in 2017, and when that is complete, the coal-fired plant will be decommissioned and dismantled, according to Ganim’s office.In a prepared statement, Ganim called it “a huge win” for the city that will create more than 350 construction jobs and 20 permanent maintenance jobs.“PSEG is also a pledging to be a good corporate citizen of Bridgeport and we all stand to gain by the addition of more than $5,000,000 per year in tax revenues,” Ganim said, adding, “the neighborhoods closest to the plant will be bolstered by the $2 million yearly investment set forth by the community environmental benefits agreement.”That agreement will fund environmental projects and improvements in the city and encourage regional hiring.A SCATHING REPORT ON the plant released in 2014 described the facility’s decline, citing several factors for the coal-plant industry’s fall from grace nationwide.Titled, “When, Not If: Bridgeport’s Future and the Closing of PSEG’s Coal Plant,” the report from the Institute for Energy Economic and Financial Analysis said the economic downturn caused electricity demands to either stay flat or fall.In addition, increased energy-efficiency efforts and the falling price of natural gas were factors in the decline of coal-powered plants.According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the number of coal-fired plants nationwide dropped from 629 in 2003 to 518 in 2013, the most recent data made available, while natural gas facilities increased from 1,693 to 1,725 in that same time period.And the number of facilities converting other renewable resources — solar, trash-to-energy and the like — to electricity skyrocketed from 741 to 2,299 in that same time frame.All the while, according to the institute report, coal remained expensive, and the Bridgeport plant’s inefficiency — taking upward of 24 hours to reach full power once going on line — made the facility more and more obsolete.Full article: Connecticut’s coal-fired era coming to a close
By Dialogo March 03, 2009 While investigating the cultural legacy of the indigenous Paî Tavyterâ people, a team of Spanish experts has found in Paraguay the remains of a human being that date back 5,000 years. The discovery, in the department of Amambay, more specifically in a hill known as “Jasuka Venda,” was found by a team from the Museum of Altamira, which is the custodian of information on the Altamira Caves, located in the Spanish Cantabrian coast, and which is the main exponent of cave art from the Upper Paleolithic period. The Museum will present details of the discovery to the International Congress of Cave Art, which will be held next July. However, museum director José Antonio Lasheras has made plans to travel to Paraguay in the next few days to present to the Paraguayan society and the Paî people an advance report on the results. More specifically, on March 6th, Lasheras will participate in a conference with indigenous leaders and with representatives of all the communities in order to share the results of his work. Afterward, he will reveal his conclusions in two conferences that will take place at Universidad Nacional in Pedro Juan Caballero, and in the Spanish “Juan de Salazar” Cultural Center in Asunción. Today the Altamira Museum explained that, besides the most ancient human remains in Paraguay, they have also found in this hill “unprecedented until now” specimens of cave art in the “pisadas style,” which is very well known in the region, which includes Brazil, Argentina, Chile, and Bolivia. According to the Spanish research team, this discovery would suggest that “this region might be the place of origin and center of dissemination of this kind of cave art to almost all of South America.” “Jasuka Venda” hill is conceived as the main cultural legacy of the Guarani tribe of Paî Tavyterâ, a place where, according to indigenous beliefs, the Creator God and the Big Grandfather, Ñande Ru, originated, and from which the world and humanity were created. The legal owner of the hill, the Paî Reta Joaju community association, took the initiative to promote the archaeological study of the area, and to request the collaboration of the Altamira Museum to make an inventory of their cultural legacy. The museum has also planned to expand the results of this research to its headquarters in Santillana del Mar, in the Cantabric region, which will soon open a temporary exhibition on the discovery. The museum also stated that the Cultural Secretary of Paraguay is interested in extending the collaboration that made this archaeological research possible, which has also been supported by the Spanish Agency of Cooperation for Development and the Spanish Ministry of Culture.
By Dialogo September 14, 2010 The navies of Brazil, South Africa and India began a biennial trilateral exercise on September 11 off the coast of Africa. While Brazil joined the India-Brazil South Africa (IBSAMAR) Exercise II with naval surface ships, the South African Navy dispatched submarines and aircraft, and India sent four modern warships from its western fleet, according to a report by Xinhua. The trilateral exercise involves maritime operations such as anti-air, anti-surface, anti-submarine and anti-pirate exercises among the three partners, said a report in the Press Trust of India news agency. The joint exercise will serve to strengthen inter-operability in the maritime operations among the three navies, said an Indian Navy official in the news agency’s report, adding that the 2010 edition will be much more complex than the first. The first edition of IBSAMAR was held In May, 2008.
