USDA Forest Service Resumes Select Timber Management Activities In New Mexico And Arizona

first_imgActivities to resume include the cutting of the U.S. Capitol Christmas tree, personal Christmas tree cutting, the cutting of personal use forest products such as vigas and latillas, special product collection by tribes for ceremonial purposes, and the cutting of hazard trees that pose a risk to life or property. Certain projects entirely outside Mexican spotted owl protected activity centers, critical habitat and recovery habitat will resume, along with prescribed burning projects within certain limitations listed in the order. Certain commercial firewood gathering projects are also allowed to resume with restrictions, as specified in the court’s order. Personal use firewood cutting was approved by the court earlier and will continue to be allowed. Other timber management activities not listed in the court’s orders are still restricted. USDA News: In September, USDA Forest Service received an order from the court stating that the agency’s “timber management” actions must cease on the six national forests pending formal consultation regarding potential effects to the Mexican spotted owl. Oct. 21, 2019, the plaintiff and the Forest Service submitted a stipulation to modify the injunction for certain activities. ALBUQUERQUE ― The United States District Court for the District of Arizona issued an order Wednesday approving the recently filed stipulation to modify the ongoing court-ordered injunction, allowing select timber management activities to resume on five national forests in New Mexico and on the Tonto National Forest in Arizona.center_img A court order in September halted timber management actions pending consultation regarding potential effects to the Mexican spotted owl. Courtesy photo “We continue to extend our gratitude to our state and federal partners and countless community leaders for their continued support. We are committed to being as open and transparent as possible in notifying interested groups and individuals when we take steps aimed at alleviating the stressors of the recent court-ordered injunction,” Regional Forester Cal Joyner said. The national forests affected by the court’s order remain open to the public for recreation and other activities.

US Wave Energy Prize advances 20 teams to next stage

first_imgUS Department of Energy (DoE) has selected 20 teams as official qualified teams for the Wave Energy Prize.The 20 qualified teams, selected out of 92 official registered teams, have passed the first technology gate and will continue their quest to double the energy captured from ocean waves and win a prize purse totaling more than $2 million, Wave Energy Prize’s press release reads.The design-build-test competition is encouraging the development of game-changing wave energy conversion (WEC) devices.The aim is the development of a device that will achieve the DOE’s goal of doubling energy captured, which will in turn reduce the cost of wave energy, making it more competitive with traditional energy solutions.A panel of expert judges identified the qualified teams based upon the quality of their technical submissions, which described their concepts in detail. Among other requirements, qualified teams will now build a 1:50 scale model and will participate in small-scale tank testing as a means of validating their concepts, according to Wave Energy Prize.Official qualified teams are:Advanced Ocean Energy at Virginia Tech,AquaHarmonics,Atlantic Wavepower Partnership,Atlas Ocean Systems,CalWave,Enorasy Labs,Float Inc. – BergerABAM,IOwec (MIT Sea Grant College Program),M3 Wave,Mocean Energy,Ocean Energy USA,Oscilla Power,Principle Power,RTI Wave Power,Sea Potential,SEWEC,Super Watt Wave Catcher Barge Team,Team FLAPPER (Floating Lever and Piston Power ExtractoR),Wave Energy Conversion Corporation of America (WECCA),Waveswing America. Phil Michael, Technical Expert at Ricardo, said: “We’re excited to see how these 20 devices perform during the small-scale testing, and we’re hopeful many will demonstrate a capability to achieve the DOE’s goal of doubling the cost effectiveness of energy capture from ocean waves.”Finalist teams, which are scheduled to be announced in March 2016, will be selected based upon the requirements of Prize’s second technology gate.These teams will have the opportunity to receive funds to build their 1:20 scale WEC prototypes, which are scheduled to undergo tank testing at the Naval Surface Warfare Center’s Maneuvering and Seakeeping (MASK) Basin at Carderock, Maryland, beginning in the summer of 2016.[mappress mapid=”603″]Image: Wave Energy Prizelast_img read more

Qualcomm Board Unanimously Rejects Broadcom’s $121 Billion Offer

first_imgThe Board of Directors of Qualcomm Incorporated issued a letter to Broadcom Limited after their meeting on February 14, 2018. In the letter they tell Broadcomm, that the acquisition offer undervalues Qualcomm and they will not be accepting this offer. On Feb 7, Broadcom raised their acquisition offer to $82 per share i.e. $121 Billion from $100 Billion which was offered eariler. The letter from Paul E. Jacobs, that Chairman of the board to Hock Tan, the CEO of Broadcom, can be seen below:February 16, 2018Mr. Hock TanPresident and Chief Executive OfficerBroadcom Limited1 Yishun Avenue 7Singapore 768923Dear Mr. Tan,I am writing on behalf of the Board of Directors of Qualcomm Incorporated.  In our February 14 meeting, Broadcom reiterated that $82.00 per share is its best and final proposal. The Board remains unanimously of the view that this proposal materially undervalues Qualcomm and has an unacceptably high level of risk, and therefore is not in the best interests of Qualcomm stockholders. That said, our Board found the meeting to be constructive in that the Broadcom representatives expressed a willingness to agree to certain potential antitrust-related divestitures beyond those contained in your publicly filed merger agreement.  At the same time, Broadcom continued to resist agreeing to other commitments that could be expected to be required by the FTC, the European Commission, MOFCOM and other government regulatory bodies. Broadcom also declined to respond to any questions about its intentions for the future of Qualcomm’s licensing business, which makes it very difficult to predict the antitrust-related remedies that might be required.  In addition, Broadcom insists on controlling all material decisions regarding our valuable licensing business during the extended period between signing and a potential closing, which would be problematic and not permitted under antitrust laws.Our Board is highly cognizant of the need to protect Qualcomm’s stockholders from the considerable risks of agreeing to a transaction that does not close.  A breakup fee in the range proposed by Broadcom does not come close to compensating for those risks.While the current Broadcom proposal is unacceptable, our Board is intensely focused on maximizing value for Qualcomm stockholders, whether through executing on its growth strategy or by selling the Company. Our Board is open to further discussions with Broadcom to see if a proposal that appropriately reflects the true value of Qualcomm shares, and ensures an appropriate level of deal certainty, can be obtained. If such a proposal cannot be obtained from Broadcom, our Board is highly confident in Qualcomm’s ability to deliver superior near- and long-term value to its stockholders by continuing to execute its growth strategy.Sincerely,Paul E. JacobsChairman of the BoardHere is a timeline of the Qualcomm/Broadcom Sagalast_img read more

first_imgAccording to France Football, the centre-back’s experience of playing in England’s top flight club competition for more than a decade has not gone unnoticed and is attracting interest from ‘several Ligue 1 clubs’.FC Nantes are looking to strengthen the heart of their back four for the new season and therefore they have ‘surveyed’ the 32-year-old.Miguel Cardoso’s side allowed Koffi Djidji to join Serie A side Torino on a season-long loan deal, while Nicolas Pallois has struggled to get regular playing time following the arrival of the Portuguese coach.Pallois, who is attracting interest from Caen, reportedly had an altercation with his manager and is training away from the main group. Given that, Nantes are looking to sign Kaboul, but the report does not mention if the player and/or Watford are interested in the transfer.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoDating.comFind out where single guys are hanging out in Tung ChungDating.comUndoStanChart by CNBC CatalystDigitization in Banks Is No Longer About Efficiency, but Business Resilience.

Motorsport Ireland Weekend Roundup

first_imgTohill, driving an older, two wheel drive Ford Fiesta as his usual European championship car is being prepared for next season, qualified on pole position for the main race, thanks to winning the Modified final. However, he was judged to have jumped the start when the lights went green, and was relegated to the back of the grid for the restart. Noel Greene scored his first ever Rallycross Super Final win at Mondello Park yesterday when his Mitsubishi Mirage held off the challenge of double National champion Derek Tohill by just over one second at the chequered flag. He battled through the field, but couldn’t get past Greene, ending his hopes of finishing the year with a clean sweep of seven wins from seven Super Finals. Lloyd Spendlove took third place, ahead of former champion Derrick Jobb. Ciaran Murphy won the Production final, with Patrick Donoghue adding to his long list of Rally Car final wins.print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Emaillast_img read more
