La guerra civil de Siria se está extendiendo según observadores internacionales y se puede convertir en un conflicto regional.

Según una encuesta de la firma Gallup la religión está perdiendo fuerzas en Estados Unidos y el número de ateos está creciendo.

RFS Advocate Jumps on LA Oil Spill

first_img An oil pipeline ruptured in Los Angeles on LA Street last week and in response Americans United For Change said, “Like oil spills? You’ll love what happens after dismantling the Renewable Fuel Standard. 50,000 gallons of crude oil spilled out onto the streets and in some areas the crude oil was knee-high.Jeremy Funk, spokesperson for pro renewable energy and pro Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) group Americans United for Change, said of the crude oil spill, “Whether you live in the Gulf Coast community, near a railroad in Lynchburg, VA, a farm in North Dakota, or in the middle of a major metropolis like Los Angeles, it seems nowhere in America is out of reach from the messes big oil leaves behind.”“Headlines about oil industry spills and explosions and derailments have become a ‘dog bites man’ story,” Funk continued who stressed that the alarming rate of environmental disasters associated with oil should give the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) serious pause before deciding whether or not to roll back the RFS. The EPA is expected to publish its final 2014 RFS rules around June 1 and there is concern they will move forward with lower renewable fuel gallons than what is called for in legislation.“Consider that ethanol makes up 10% of the U.S. gasoline supply, and that for every gallon of ethanol produced domestically it means one less gallon sold of gasoline derived from dirty crude oil from unstable regions. That’s why the oil industry wants the EPA to help put out of business their safer, cleaner, cheaper renewable fuels competition. But if the EPA give big oil what they want and drastically cuts down the amount ethanol in the nation’s fuel supply, there’s no way to avoid a corresponding increase in demand for crude oil and an increase in the number of disasters related to transporting it.” Funk added, “So if you like oil spills — you’ll love what happens if the RFS is watered down.”Source: www.domesticfuel.com Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Home Energy RFS Advocate Jumps on LA Oil Spill RFS Advocate Jumps on LA Oil Spill By Andy Eubank – May 18, 2014 Previous articleHouse Lawmakers Urge U.S. Negotiators to Stand Against Common Food NamesNext articleIt Does Not Pay to Bad Mouth Farmers Andy Eubanklast_img read more

Prominent Local Psychologist, Philanthropist, and Music Patron Named Hillsides Gala Chair

Dr. Ermshar, who in 2015 was listed a top doctor by Pasadena magazine for the third consecutive year, has dedicated her professional life to helping others get back on their feet and achieve their personal best.“I am so impressed with Hillsides as an organization and with its mission of filling the needs of children and families who are in foster care or in crisis,” said Dr. Ermshar. “It is an honor to chair the annual gala using a concept close to my heart, music, which I feel has the ability to reach and connect with people across all cultures and backgrounds.”Hillsides annual gala supports the agency’s many services and programs. It is a chance for supporters to gather together to celebrate Hillsides mission of creating lasting change for children and families and to enjoy fine food, wine, and entertainment. Dr. Ermshar also plans on putting her own twist on the gala by adding unique musical elements to the evening.Dr. Ermshar comes to her role with extensive gala planning experience. She has chaired several successful annual galas for the Glendale Adventist Medical Center and the Los Angeles Master Chorale, including the Master Chorale’s 50th anniversary gala in 2014. She is active on many boards, including the Pasadena Symphony and Pepperdine University’s Board of Visitors, and is the vice chair of the Glendale Adventist Medical Center’s Foundation Board. She and her husband, Dan Monahan, are also supporters of California Institute of Technology as a Caltech Associates.Her passion for giving doesn’t end there. After her wedding six years ago, instead of a traditional honeymoon, she and Dan purchased 200 wheelchairs and distributed them to individuals who were physically disabled in Belize. “We thought it was a good idea to start our life together in service,” she said.Music has always played an instrumental role in Dr. Ermshar’s life. She spent her childhood attending performances at the LA Opera, the Hollywood Bowl, and the Glendale Symphony. She developed a deep love of opera and classical music in part due to the influence of her grandfather, who owned over 50 instruments and built a large private music hall where he hosted elaborate music salons that at the time were considered can’t-miss events in the San Gabriel Valley. An accomplished pianist and vocalist herself, Dr. Ermshar attended Pepperdine University on a vocal scholarship where she majored in psychology and minored in vocal performance.Professionally, Dr. Ermshar maintains a thriving private practice focusing on psychological treatment and assessment, neuropsychology, and forensic psychology (the intersection of law and mental health). She is an associate professor at the California School of Forensic Studies at Alliant International University where she teaches doctoral-level students. She has also served as the practicum training director at Patton State Hospital. Dr. Ermshar has been an expert witness in numerous court cases within the federal court, California superior courts, and California juvenile courts. She serves on the staff of two hospitals in Pasadena, Las Encinas Hospital, and Huntington Memorial Hospital.Part of Dr. Ermshar’s responsibilities as gala chair is heading up a gala committee. This year’s gala committee consists of Shana Bayat, Armida Baylon-Stelzer, Susan Blaisdell, Cathy Brennan, Leslie Clayton, Donna De Mond, Julie Echols, Megan Foker, Donna Ford, Gina Guerra, Hasblady Guzman, Judy Kenyon, Pamela Mahon, Dan Monahan, Robin Phillips, Susan Pinsky, Jill Roberts, Courtney Diroll Saavedra, Deborah and Robert Simon, Sara Simpson, Maureen Staley, Rebecca Trail, Kim Weleba and Lori Williams.“I am so excited to be working with this incredible group of men and women,” said Dr. Ermshar. “Together, we hope to make this a memorable and highly successful event that supports Hillsides.”Hillsides, headquartered in Pasadena, is a child welfare nonprofit organization serving children in foster care and families in crisis throughout Los Angeles County. More than 100 years old, Hillsides serves more than 6,200 individuals in 26 sites. For more information on the gala or Hillsides, please visit www.hillsides.org.

How high is housing demand?

Robert Heinin, the first person in line was camped out since 8am Saturday. Local NewsBusiness How high is housing demand? At the Odessa Board of Realtors, Executive Vice President Connie Coots said she could not remember a time when the inventory of existing homes was so low, including during the peak of the last oil boom a few years ago.In February, the trade group reported 1.5 months of housing inventory — a measure of market that estimates how long it would take all the listed homes to sell. That’s a third of what it was at the same time last year, which was already a tight market. A balanced housing market has about six months of inventory.“New builds are just not keeping up with the demand,” Coots said. “If they are priced right, they are moving.”Turner, Deckert and the other hopefuls Monday were vying for one of 25 lots where Permian Homes will build new houses this year.The latest sales were for the second phase of the Enclave at Mission Ranch development, where homes start at about $230,000 and give buyers custom options. The buyers had sought one of 78 lots in the first phase, but those quickly sold out.“In Midland or Odessa, we can’t build them fast enough,” Permian Homes President Greg Ferrel said. “It doesn’t matter the price point, or where it is, everything is selling. That’s just what the market’s doing. That’s what oil is doing.”It’s been that way since late 2017.“It just exploded,” Ferrel said. “And it hasn’t slowed down since.”Permian Homes didn’t advertise the Monday sale, Ferrel said. Turner said the buyers were all on the waiting list and most learned of it by seeking updates from the company.Turner and Deckert joined the waiting list about six months ago, which already had more than 100 other people on it. She started camping out Sunday afternoon, earlier than the couple planned, once she drove by and saw other prospective buyers had beaten them to it.Today, Odessa has one of the strongest housing markets in the country, a recent study by the insurance company Nationwide that looked at factors such home sales, the mortgage market, job and wage growth, and demographics as people flock to the area showed.“A lot of people who would like to buy homes either have to pay a lot more to get one, or they have to wait,” Nationwide Chief Economist David Berson said. “It’s just a lack of supply.”That’s unlikely to change in the next year, as long as job growth and other indicators of a booming local economy remain, Berson said.Turner said he and his fiancée should be able to move into their new $300,000 home around November and avoid the rent increase they would face if they renewed the lease at their Midland apartment.“Getting to pick out exactly what we want, I feel like it’s a pretty good deal,” Turner said. “Especially with all the money to be made here, all the jobs — You are kind of in the middle of everything.”More Information People camped out in front of the Permian Homes sales office at 76 Berkshire Circle in Odessa, for a chance to get a contract for a lot and new home, Monday, March 26, 2018.

ECSO’s hamburger cookout smashes expectations

first_img Facebook Facebook Twitter Twitter Texas DPS Troopers Suzanne Esparza and Andy Nunez go through the food line at a benefit cookout at the Ector County Coliseum Barn A to help the three deputies that were wounded in the line of duty recently. Ector County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Brandon Blake had originally hoped to sell a couple hundred burgers during a cookout benefitting three deputies shot in the line of duty last week. Community members, local law enforcement agencies and first responders helped ECSO smash those expectations on Wednesday at the Ector County Coliseum, Barn A. Blake said the initial goal of 200 burgers continuously rose and served more than 2,200 people. “It brings into perspective the way people view law enforcement,” Blake said. “A lot of times, we can’t please everyone and a lot of times we wish we could. We are out there doing our job. A majority of the people understand that we have a job to do. A majority of people do support us and it’s good to see.” The benefit was for ECSO deputies Josh Pool, 28, Cody Smith, 26, and Ricky Rodriguez, 28. All three were all reportedly shot by gunman Damon Murad Asad, 33, who was shot and killed after he reportedly opened fire on deputies who were there to serve a narcotics search warrant on Jan. 14 at 7321 Kentucky Ave. Juan Antonio Andrade, 35, was inside the home at the time and was taken into custody and charged with failure to identify, a class A misdemeanor. Andrade was taken from the Ector County Law Enforcement Center to the Texas State Penitentiary at Huntsville on Friday. Andrade is in custody of the United States Marshals Service. In addition to an outpouring support from the community, the three deputies shot each received a Thin Blue Line wooden flag crafted by Wood Shop in Odessa. “At times, we work a really thankless job and this is a really good showing for the community to come out and support us,” Pool said. “It really has showed us that the community is really backing us at this time.” Pool and Rodriguez were each shot in the left leg, while Smith had a bullet graze the left side of his lip. All three deputies are currently not on active duty. Smith showed up at the Ector County Law Enforcement Center the day after the shooting. He explained that not everybody at ECSO could make it to the hospital, so he wanted to show everyone he was fine. “I’m not a homebody,” he said about going back to work. “I can’t sit at home all day. When your boss tells you to stay home, you have to do it. I’ll be back soon.” Pool was shot about an inch above his left knee cap, while Rodriguez had the bullet pass halfway up his left thigh. Despite being shot, all three deputies said the incident on Jan. 14 won’t deter them from being part of the SWAT team in the future. “I’ve always known what the danger and in all this could be. For me it doesn’t change anything,” Rodriguez said. “I’m going to take some time to heal up and come back out and continue serving as part of the team. We still have a job to do, so at the end of the day it doesn’t make anything different at all.” Pool is part of the special investigative unit, while Smith is a criminal investigation division investigator and Rodriguez is a reserve officer. Rodriguez said he departed as a full-time deputy about seven months ago and went into the private sector with several individual businesses. The Odessa American previously reported that Pat Patton, Ector County human resources director, said worker’s compensation and an insurance claim have been submitted for all three deputies. She added the approval for all claims for all three deputies won’t be determined until the investigation being done by Texas Rangers is completed. The proceeds from the cookout will assist those deputies with any bills due to the shooting. In addition to funds raised from the cookout, The Permian Basin Assist the Officer Foundation raffled off a 1 Sig Sauer P365 9mm Pistol, courtesy of Tejas Shooting Sports. Proceeds from the raffle tickets will also assist the deputies. Sheriff Mike Griffis said as he looked over the crowd at the benefit that he’s grateful to be in a community that cares deeply about law enforcement agencies. “I really don’t have the words to express my gratitude and thanks to the community for all the support that we had throughout my career and especially the last two weeks,” Griffis said. “We have a great community and a lot of good people in our community.” Pinterest Local NewsLaw EnforcementPeople WhatsAppcenter_img ECSO’s hamburger cookout smashes expectations TAGS  By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 Pinterest Previous article011219_Gymnastics_09Next article010818_Superintendent Digital AIM Web Support WhatsApplast_img read more

The Southern Ocean ecosystem under multiple climate change stresses – an integrated circumpolar assessment

first_imgA quantitative assessment of observed and projected environmental changes in the Southern Ocean (SO) with a potential impact on the marine ecosystem shows: (1) large proportions of the SO are and will be affected by one or more climate change processes; areas projected to be affected in the future are larger than areas that are already under environmental stress, (2) areas affected by changes in sea-ice in the past and likely in the future are much larger than areas affected by ocean warming. The smallest areas (<1% area of the SO) are affected by glacier retreat and warming in the deeper euphotic layer. In the future, decrease in the sea-ice is expected to be widespread. Changes in iceberg impact resulting from further collapse of ice-shelves can potentially affect large parts of shelf and ephemerally in the off-shore regions. However, aragonite undersaturation (acidification) might become one of the biggest problems for the Antarctic marine ecosystem by affecting almost the entire SO. Direct and indirect impacts of various environmental changes to the three major habitats, sea-ice, pelagic and benthos and their biota are complex. The areas affected by environmental stressors range from 33% of the SO for a single stressor, 11% for two and 2% for three, to <1% for four and five overlapping factors. In the future, areas expected to be affected by 2 and 3 overlapping factors are equally large, including potential iceberg changes, and together cover almost 86% of the SO ecosystem.last_img read more
