first_img The Deepsea Yantai semi-submersible rig was used for drilling the Dugong prospect. (Credit: Concedo ASA) Neptune Energy has agreed to acquire an additional 5% stake in the Dugong licence (PL882) in the Norwegian North Sea from Concedo for an undisclosed price.Following the transaction, Neptune Energy will take its stake in the offshore licence to 45%.

Maafa (“Great Disaster”)

first_imgTo the Editor:Black History Month has come and gone, but we should not forget to cherish and appreciate Black culture and history. In addition, we need to recognize the impact slavery and racism continues to have in the U.S. and the world. Keeping that in mind, I would like to make people aware that March 25 is the International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade. According to the United Nations official website: “Every year on March 25, the International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade offers the opportunity to honor and remember those who suffered and died at the hands of the brutal slavery system. The International Day also aims to raise awareness about the dangers of racism and prejudice today.” In brief, the transatlantic slave trade lasted for more than 400 years. The traders of the human commodity forced between 12 and 15 million Africans into the cold, destructive and inhumane world of bondage. Of those 12 to 15 million human beings who were captured, large numbers died as a result of slave raids, transportation to the coasts and during the Middle Passage. Those who did make it, became property of people in Europe, North America, South America and the Caribbean.In order to justify the trading and controlling of human life, Europeans created a hierarchy of humanity through pseudoscience. They decided that the continent of Africa and those who inhabited it were inferior to Europe and Europeans. As a result, we continue to live with a false notion of race which continues in the form of racial stereotypes, prejudice and violence against people of color. Science has proven that we are 99.9% biologically the same, but we still live with the sociological impact of race which can be traced back for centuries. Slavery was abolished in the U.S. with the passing of the Thirteenth Amendment, yet it still impacts our country today. Modern day slavery in the form of human trafficking and mass incarceration of people of color continues. Therefore, when you are remembering the victims of slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade, let’s try to figure out a way to end this destructive institution today and work together to end the prejudice that eats away at our country.GENE WOODSlast_img read more

Freeholder Marie Hayes Honored in D.C., Embraces “Year of the Woman”

first_imgBy Tim KellyIf 2018 marked the “Year of the Woman” in the mid-term elections, as numerous media outlets have termed it, then Marie Hayes is ahead of the curve.Hayes, an Ocean City resident, has been a Cape May County Freeholder since February 2013, when she filled an unexpired term and was elected to a full three-year term in November 2014, well ahead of the record surge in women Congressional and Senate members.“That was something that did come up during the week,” Hayes said on Friday from Washington, D.C., where she was named a “Woman of Excellence” of the National Foundation of Women Legislators during the organization’s annual conference.“(Women) think differently than men and provide a different perspective,” she said. “It is great that we are making strides at all levels (of government).”Altogether, there are 115 women in Congress and the Senate, the largest class ever, according to the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University.While Hayes, a Republican, serves at the county level, she feels a kinship with the sisterhood of federal lawmakers.“It used to be, I would see a member’s name tag identifying them as a senator and I would be a little intimidated and might shy away from saying something to them,” Hayes said. “However, these are the women who came up to me and made me feel completely at ease.”Hayes said the nation has become “much too polarized” and women’s voices can help change that.“I truly believe that we are at a crossroads as a nation,” she said. “We’re not going to get anything accomplished (in Washington and Trenton) without listening to each other and reaching across the aisle. We might be of different parties and come from different areas of the country, but we have one very important thing in common; we all love America.”Marie Hayes with Senator Carrie Rudd of Minnesota.In her current role in county government, Hayes is responsible for the Board of Elections, Culture and Heritage, the library, museum and Cape May County Park/Zoo, Tax Board, Surrogate’s Office, Tourism and Public Information.She also serves on the New Jersey Association of Counties’ executive board as its 2nd vice president and is a member of the Governor’s State Task Force on Child Abuse and Neglect.Hayes was one of only 35 women honored nationally as a “Woman of Excellence” and one of two from New Jersey. Assemblywoman Yvonne Lopez , a Democrat from Perth Amboy representing the 19th Legislative District, was the other New Jersey woman honored.The award winners included representatives from almost every level of federal, state and local government. The group includes mayors, congressional representatives, U.S. senators and a lieutenant governor.According to the NFWL, the award was initiated in 2013 to recognize women who “worked tirelessly, often breaking down barriers and overcoming obstacles … to serve their community.”Marie Hayes, top row, fourth from right, joins her fellow “Women of Excellence” award winners.To be in the presence of such impressive leaders “is inspiring,” Hayes said, “and it renews me. It reminds me of why I’m doing what I’m doing. I can’t even begin to describe what a wonderful feeling it is to be among such accomplished people.”One of the important lessons from the conference was a team-building exercise she hopes to incorporate into her duties as freeholder.“We were given a number of challenges to solve in a bi-partisan way,” she explained. “One of the things they stressed was to seek out the strengths of individual members and utilize those strengths for the greater good.”She said the group also looked at a number of issues facing the country. Of particular interest to Hayes were veterans’ issues and the many challenges facing the men and women returning to civilian life after serving in the military.A graduate of Atlantic Cape Community College and Thomas Edison State University,  Hayes earned a degree in human services with a concentration in criminal justice. She also is a 1996 graduate of the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia.During her time at the FBI Academy, Hayes received special recognition for her work in the FBI’s death investigations course.Hayes began her career in public service working as an investigator in the Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office. The bulk of her career there was spent in the investigation and prevention of child abuse and sexual assault investigations.She then made a rapid climb in her career path, becoming first the sergeant of detectives, then lieutenant and eventually retiring as captain of detectives in 2009.She also served as vice president of the Policemen’s Benevolent Association’s local chapter and as president of the Mid-Atlantic Association of Women in Law Enforcement.Marie and her husband Lloyd have a son, Henry Lloyd, and two daughters, Megan and Danielle, a son-in-law, Vince, and six grandchildren.Marie Hayes with Fatmeh Cheaib of Wayne University, a recipient of a NFWL Scholarship volunteering at the conference.

Press release: Thousands of farmers in stewardship agreements to be paid in July

first_imgFarmers and land managers in Environmental Stewardship (ES) and Countryside Stewardship (CS) agreements do important work to protect the countryside. However, a significant number of agreement holders have not yet received full payment for work they have undertaken.ES and CS customers with unpaid annual revenue claims, some dating back to 2015, will receive a payment for the full amount they are owed by the end of July.This is a Treasury-funded payment, which will be made to farmers and land managers while their annual revenue claims from the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) budget are processed.RPA Chief Executive Paul Caldwell said: The RPA is writing to all unpaid customers this week to provide an update on payments. Once individual claims have been processed, the RPA will write again to customers to confirm any adjustments to be made to the final payment.Taking land out of production for species-rich meadows, building ponds to provide a water source for wildlife, or planting trees for carbon sequestration are a few of the options under ES and CS that farmers and land managers are currently paid for.The future Environment Land Management (ELM) scheme, which will replace CS and ES once we leave the EU, will undergo tests and trials with farmers and industry groups before being rolled out. It is expected to be fully operational in late 2024. Today we are announcing that outstanding revenue claims for agri-environment schemes will be paid in full. We are determined to build on the improvements that we have already put in place, keep up a regular cycle of timely payments, and restore confidence in these schemes which are so important for our environment.last_img read more

The import of ‘Breaking Good’

first_imgWalter White, the central character of the television series “Breaking Bad,” is a middle-aged chemistry teacher who becomes a drug dealer after learning he has terminal cancer. During an on-campus public discussion with President Drew Faust last month, the show’s creator, Vincent Gilligan, said that White’s terminal illness freed him from the fear that had held him to the straight and narrow.Harvard College’s Class of 2014, whose members will receive their diplomas at Thursday’s Commencement ceremonies, should consider their own futures with a similar fearlessness, Faust said. But where White’s selfish motivations led him into a downward spiral, she urged graduates to “break good,” “face outward,” and act for the betterment of the larger community.Faust addressed the graduating class during the annual Baccalaureate Service in Memorial Church. Dating to Harvard’s earliest days, the service is restricted to members of the graduating class and is a personal farewell from the president and clergy.Good work, Faust said, doesn’t just accomplish admirable aims through a task; it can also bring out the best in others. She quoted South African leader Nelson Mandela, who admitted being fearful during his long struggle for freedom, but who also said that by appearing brave, he inspired others, and it was their hopeful response that ultimately gave him the strength to conquer his own fear.“We are interdependent. Our work and our lives depend on others, as theirs do upon us,” Faust said. “With the right combination of luck and learning, humility and compassion, we do not break bad. Instead we can create moments of grace with and for one another.”The Baccalaureate also served as something of a dress rehearsal for Thursday’s Commencement ceremonies. Seniors wore their caps and gowns and lined up in the Old Yard in front of Holworthy Hall just before 2 p.m. They processed past University Hall and the John Harvard Statue, and into Tercentenary Theatre before entering the church.The service was presided over by Jonathan Walton, Plummer Professor of Christian Morals and Pusey Minister in the Memorial Church. Speakers read scripture selections from several religions in their originating languages, as well as in English, causing the church to echo with holy words in Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, Sanscrit, Punjabi, Greek. and English.Walton opened and closed the service, offering welcoming words and a reminder to the newly minted graduates that although they may feel as if they’re nearing an end, their graduation is really a beginning.“This week is neither one of culmination nor conclusion,” Walton said. “It is Commencement. It is just the beginning.”Seniors were anticipating their hard-won graduation with a mixture of feelings. Emily Hu, a Currier House human evolutionary biology concentrator, said she was excited that Commencement was at hand. After graduation, she plans to work in a laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital.Margaret Wittenmyer, a Kirkland House government concentrator, enjoyed the diversity of religions represented at the service, particularly since some of her friends gave readings. Whittenmyer, who is heading to law school at the University of Texas at Austin in the fall, admitted being a bit nervous herself.“It’s just kind of shocking to find yourself at the end,” Wittenmyer said.Wittenmyer is part of a class that traversed a winding path through Harvard. In her speech, Faust recounted some of the important events that marked the seniors’ tenure, including the Boston Marathon bombings, Japan’s earthquake and tsunami, and superstorm Sandy. The students attended Harvard’s 375th anniversary celebration, turning a rainout into a muddy dance party. They studied through last winter’s polar vortex, and sent some classmates to the Olympics. The football team beat Yale in The Game four years straight to bring the streak to seven years, and the men’s basketball team went to the NCAA tournament three times.Through it all, Faust said, the class has put its stamp on the University, as it will on the world in the years to come.“Visitas gets canceled, so you reinvent it. The 375th is hit by a deluge — you dance in the mud. A cheating scandal rocks the College, so you successfully advocate for an honor code. Bombs strike the marathon, so you take care of one another and you run again,” Faust said. “Reach beyond what you do for yourselves to what you do for another. If any class can do this, it is yours. The world has never needed you more.”last_img read more

Five Broadway Roles for Norman Bates (Yes, THAT Norman Bates!)

first_img Mark Cohen in Rent I mean, isn’t Mark a little troubled anyway? Also, Mom issues. Carmen Ghia in The Producers Jesusssss, Norma! Let the kid have some FUN already! We didn’t expect Broadway to pop up on Bates Motel, but in the latest episode of A&E’s brilliant Psycho prequel series, Norma Bates (Vera Fermiga) dragged troubled son Norman (SPOILER: He most likely just killed his teacher) to a friggin’ musical theater audition! Although Norman didn’t wind up trying out for the community theater production of South Pacific, Norma did (wowing the crowd with “Maybe This Time” from Cabaret). OK, clearly Norman isn’t right for any of the roles in the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic, but we couldn’t help but dream up five musical theater roles that the creepy kid could make a killing in! Sweeney Todd in Sweeney Todd A no-brainer. You’re never too young to start playing with knives. Moritz in Spring Awakening You know, cause he’s totally f’d. The Emcee in Cabaret Forget two ladies—he’s got two personalities. View Commentslast_img read more

Opening day? Friday, December 11 (projected) Visit Wintergreen anytime for some golf, tennis, hiking, swimming, Lake Monocan, spa, dining, archery, summer tubing, and zipline. More details are available on the website. Number of lifts? 5 chair lifts (the only ski area in the region with two high-speed 6 pack chair lifts for a quick ride back up the mountain) and 4 surface conveyor lifts. Wintergreen Rental ShopWe have a Rossignol Experience Center with the latest and greatest ski equipment. Our fleet of boots has been converted to all Rossignol brand boot. Cool! What activities are available beyond the slopes? Ridgely’s Fun Park is the place for young children to play in the snow with a gentle tubing hill, bear paw snowshoes and more. Discovery Ridge Adventure Center has upgraded the fun with a Ninja Warrior course and bouldering wall. Relax by our indoor pool and hot tubs. In addition to the five Terrain Based Learning stations, Wintergreen Resort will install a conveyor lift forty feet longer than the existing conveyor. This surface lift is ideal for transporting skiers and snowboarders up the hill in a learning environment as they do not have to load an aerial lift. The final piece of the upgrade to the beginner area is the relocation of the Snowsport Check-in Office which makes the process and access more convenient for beginner skiers and snowboarders with a closer proximity to the beginner terrain. Wintergreen Resort’s new Terrain Based Teaching area is comprised of five stations plus a new check-in area and a conveyor lift. Station #1, known as the ‘Flats’, will cover basic, but necessary, beginner information like equipment familiarization, moving around on flat ground with equipment, getting up from a seated position, and learning techniques to approach and load a lift. Station #2 is a ‘Mini-Pipe’ which is a dished out area in the snow that allows participants to begin moving with momentum for the first time. The mini-pipe promotes a natural increase then decrease in speed to encourage skiers/riders to ‘steer’ in both forward and backward directions. The second station focuses on balance, athletic stance, natural acceleration and deceleration, and flex and extension in different positions. Station #3 is known as ‘Rollers’, and it will further enhance participant balance, proper body position, edge pressure, and confidence. Learning to turn is highlighted in Station #4, the ‘Banked Slope.’ The slope gradient of the Terrain Based Learning snow features will guide participants’ skis or boards into a new direction without much effort from the participant. The final station, Station #5, known as ‘Banked Turns’ will cover linking turns for the first time. Skiers and snowboarders will control their turns by naturally turning them right/left/right/left with the banked turns made of snow.  This feature teaches balance in motion, edge control, pressure management, flex and extension, as well as riding the lift.  Skiable acres? 130 Outdoor ElementsThe shop carries ski and snowboard hardgoods and accessories plus skiwear and outerwear selections for gear junkies and outdoor fashionistas alike. You’ll also find a wide selection of Wintergreen logo items. People of various ages and abilities can advance at a pace that is comfortable for them without slowing down or racing ahead of others in the lesson. This method also increases the number of skiers and snowboarders a teaching facility can accommodate since the instructor to student ratio is replaced with station to student ratio. Certified instructors remain present along the TBL course to provide individual instruction and a bit of encouragement. No need to head home after a day on the slopes. Wintergreen Resort offers comfy accommodations from studios to 9-bedroom homes. And renting through Wintergreen gives you exclusive benefits – weekend 8 a.m. skiing and riding, access to Aquatics & Fitness, and more. Instruction techniques in the ski industry have evolved with the Terrain Based Learning (TBL) method that allows skiers and riders to progress at their own pace using features created by sculpting the snow to help participants learn to turn and stop. Unlike the traditional group method where the entire group learns next steps when everyone has grasped a concept, the TBL method lets individuals advance to the next station once they are comfortable.

Mission: Four’dableQuad-pack of unrestricted ticket for only $249 on sale through December 18. Outdoor activities have proven to be extra popular over the past summer and fall as people are encouraged to spend time outside in fresh air rather than indoors. Based on early indications, Wintergreen General Manager Rod Kessler indicated the resort expects more people than usual will want to learn to ski or snowboard this winter. Kessler noted, “We made the investment in the expanded beginner terrain to accommodate additional guests and to help them progress more quickly to the point of being proficient skiers and snowboarders. It’s surprising, but with TBL, people can go from never having skied before to ready to ski from top to bottom on modest terrain in just a day or two.” Tubing on Virginia largest tubing park, The Plunge, Ridgely’s Fun Park for kids, Aquatics & Fitness Center, The Spa, Discovery Ridge Adventure Center, indoor tennis, hiking, dining, golf at Stoney Creek, and more.
