first_imgAlaska Native Corporations | Business | Economy | Energy & Mining | Environment | North Slope | OceansArctic Slope Regional Corp: Obama acts in our name, ignores our needsDecember 21, 2016 by Liz Ruskin, Alaska Public Media Share:The Arctic Slope Regional Corp. building in midtown Anchorage in September 2007. (Creative Commons photo by chuck t)President Obama cited subsistence and the needs of Alaska Natives yesterday as part of the reason he decided to block future oil and gas lease sales in Arctic waters. Some Alaskan Natives welcome the resource protection. But the Arctic Slope Regional Corp. said the president didn’t consult with its members and is ignoring the real needs of the Inupiat people.To see how offshore development would help the people of the region, ASRC Executive Vice President Tara Sweeney said to look at what happened when Shell was exploring in the Chukchi Sea.Tara Sweeney. (Photo courtesy Arctic Slope Regional Corp.)“Our communities were working,” Sweeney said. “Our shareholders were marine mammal observers. We were providing services to the industry in Barrow, in Wainwright, out of Point Hope and in our communities. And absent any of those types of opportunities, people are looking for work.”As requested by national environmental groups, Obama put the entire Chukchi Sea and nearly all of the Beaufort Sea in what’s known as a 12(a) withdrawal, making the areas unavailable for any future lease sale. Advocates of the move say the withdrawal can’t be undone by the next president.Industry associations dispute that, and Alaska’s all-Republican congressional delegation said it’s already laying the groundwork to cancel the withdrawals.Sweeney said the president is thwarting the needs of Arctic people to have things like toilets, running water and a healthy economy. It’s especially galling to her that the White House, according to Sweeney, made the withdrawals without discussing it with ASRC or other Native groups.“It’s easy for someone in New York or Washington, D.C. — an E-NGO or a limousine liberal — to sit there and say ‘leave the oil in the ground’ when they have access to modern amenities that are considered luxuries in the U.S. Arctic,” Sweeney said.A White House official said Native corporations and other stakeholders were consulted over several years, not directly for this decision, but when the Interior Department was considering the Arctic for its five-year offshore leasing plan.A recent poll, sponsored by a pro-drilling lobby, found a large majority of Alaskans support Arctic offshore development. Among Native respondents, the pollsters found 72 percent in favor.But that’s not everyone.“I’m very, very grateful for everybody’s concern for all the Arctic, the Beaufort and Chukchi,” Ole Lake said. Lake works for the Alaska Wilderness League in Anchorage.Ole Lake mans the Alaska Wilderness League table at the 2015 Alaska Federation of Natives convention. (Photo courtesy Alaska Wilderness League)Lake is originally from Hooper Bay. It’s well south of the North Slope, but he said Yupik and Cupik cultures like his depend on harvesting the creatures that pass by on their way to the Arctic, and he wants to protect that way of life.“The coastal people have been witness to that magnificent migratory route for thousands and thousands of years and have grown with it,” Lake said.Lake believes lots of Native people are probably happy the president decided to keep oil rigs out of Arctic waters, but they’re too busy with subsistence activities to make their views known.Share this story:last_img read more

first_imgAlaska’s Energy Desk | Coronavirus | Economy | Federal Government | Nation & World | Southeast | TimberAlaska’s struggling timber industry can now hit pause on federal contractsApril 15, 2020 by Elizabeth Jenkins, Alaska’s Energy Desk – Juneau Share:The Ketchikan headquarters of Alcan Forest Products and Alaska Forest Association. (Photo by Elizabeth Jenkins/Alaska’s Energy Desk)In reaction to the pandemic’s disruption of the global timber market, the U.S. Forest Service is allowing extensions on existing timber sale contracts with sawmills and timber operators.Typically, Forest Service contracts expire after three to five years. But this change gives businesses a way to request up to a two-year extension on certain contracts so they can navigate the difficult times.Alaska businesses are getting an extra year on top of that because of another setback: The ongoing trade war with China.Much of Southeast Alaska’s timber is exported to China, and operators had expressed concern about the future of their business under the steep retaliation tariffs.In a press release, U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, said that the pandemic is threatening timber jobs and could “potentially bankrupt mills.” She added that the state’s timber operators have suffered under the “draconian 20-percent Chinese” tariffs.Share this story:last_img read more

first_img Share Show Comments ▼ Emma Haslett whatsapp It’s the stuff of dreams for those of us who spend our days toiling in grey offices, badly-lit offices. While we’re trying to find a modicum of joy during a break-time chat around the water cooler, this lot are sliding and table-tennising their way to creative nirvana.Yep, it’s “cool office” time: job search engine Adzuna has released this year’s list of the UK’s funnest workspaces. How did its judges decide what constitutes a “cool office”? According to the company, “extraordinary features can’t hurt”.Those organisations boasting not only first class product innovation, but also amazing company cultures and stunning, creative offices have well and truly earned their place.Intrigued? Here are the companies you’re going to wish you worked for….1. Virgin MoneyNo wonder its recent IPO went so well: Virgin Money’s St Andrews Square office aims to counter the miserable Edinburgh climate with artificial blue skies inside its office. Last year, the workplace won the top prize at the British Council for Offices Awards, and was also named the “best recycled and refurbished workplace”. Blue skies, green values…2. Wieden and KennedySome companies might have trouble extracting the truth about why workers show up late, but ad agency Wieden + Kennedy has made the truth part of company culture, after it built a row of confession boxes inside its offices, “for meetings, brainstorming and [as] private workspaces for its creative teams to concoct those award-winning adverts”. W+K workers are no strangers to unusual office spaces: in 2013, it installed a monochrome workspace made of paper and card in the window of one of its offices, stuck a sign on it saying “real-life designer at work”, and made its workers take it in turns to use the space as passers-by ogled them while they were working. There was even a live stream.3. TicketmasterBosses at the ticket reselling site have gone for more traditional “cool office” features, with a slide, jukebox, pinball machines and a bar-cum-meeting space known as The Imperial, which workers use to “relax and socialise after office hours”. The company also takes its employees’ wellbeing pretty seriously, with a fitness studio which has a “full fitness programme”, plus a chill-out area called The Sanctuary, where it offers 20-minute massages. Lovely. 4. LivingSocialWe’ve all had one of those days where a beer at the end wouldn’t go amiss. For workers at deals website LivingSocial, it’s merely a matter of pulling their own pint: their office features a fully-stocked bar, a grass meeting room complete with mega-bean bag and even a “picnic-themed breakout space”. A training room contains “classroom seating, a rustic oak effect vinyl floor, a vintage teacher’s desk and chair”, and even a blackboard. Just make sure there’s no talking in class.5. Bold RocketIt’s fitting that Bold Rocket should have a 3d-printed rocket hanging in its foyer, seeing as it’s an offshoot of technology giant Capco. But that’s not all – its loft-style workspace includes utilitarian ping pong tables and a “living wall”, designed to simulate billowing smoke from the rocket. 6. SplunkThe London offices of real-time data provider Splunk are decidedly geek chic: not only do they include a Tardis-style demo room, where “Splunkers” demonstrate their products to clients, it also has a section of a full-sized Pullman train carriage, which doubles as a meeting room. The office, which features bare bricks and steal, also has custom graffiti and a row of phone booths “tucked behind old style front doors”, just in case staff want to make a private phone call.   by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldGive It LoveRemember These Rare Sisters?

first_img According to shipbroker Gibson, the current orderbook for LNG-fuelled vessels stands at over 130 ships, including 40 containerships.“Of these, Hapag-Lloyd has six 23,000 teu vessels under construction at DSME, CMA CGM has four 22,000 teu vessels on order, along with nine 15,000 teu vessels at HHI, while Eastern Pacific Shipping has 10 14,800 teu ships on order from HHI,” reported Gibson.However, there is little appetite for ordering smaller LNG-fuelled container vessels, due to the size of bunker tanks required.Moreover, the hefty price tag for conversion to LNG appears to rule out any significant retrofitting.Alphaliner reports that Hapag-Lloyd has finally returned its 14,993 teu Sajir to service, after a seven-month conversion that cost some $35m – notwithstanding the loss of earnings of the six-year-old vessel.It has been renamed Brussels Express and now has a reduced capacity of around 14,600 teu, with its $120m valuation by VesselsValue unchanged by the conversion to LNG.The Sajir was one of 17 so-called ‘LNG-ready’ ULCVs Hapag-Lloyd inherited from its merger with UASC in 2017, but it seems unlikely that the carrier will be prepared to spend time and money on any further conversions.Alphaliner argued that ‘LNG-ready’ really only meant a conversion to run on the gas was possible.“It does not mean that such a conversion is necessarily easy, or makes economic sense,” said the consultant.“Until conversion prices come down and tonnage demand has reduced sufficiently to ease the pain of having a large mainline ship out of service for several months, new conversion projects seem rather unlikely,” said Alphaliner.Nevertheless, Hapag-Lloyd’s expensive retrofit of the Sajir/Brussels Express will potentially see the vessel achieve a CO2 emissions reduction of up to 30% and a sulphur dioxide and particulate matter reduction of more than 90% on its new deployment on THEA’s Asia-North Europe FE4 extra loop.LNG-fuelled containerships have been championed by CMA CGM, which like Hapag-Lloyd, sees LNG as the “most environmentally friendly, readily available fuel for shipping today”, and as a transition fuel on the pathway towards the industry goal of net-zero GHG emissions for shipping by 2050.In contrast, Maersk is piling millions of dollars into research and development of non-fossil fuels, such as ammonia, methanol and hydrogen, and has so far declined to go down the ‘mid-term’ LNG route – thus, its newbuild orderbook is virtually empty.And tomorrow, the SEA-LNG industry lobby group will release the results of its second lifecycle GHG emissions study on the use of LNG as a marine fuel.At the same time, although impractical for deepsea shipping, battery-powered ferries, car carriers and shortsea vessels are edging closer to becoming a reality.Norwegian car-carrier operator UECC confirmed today it would receive a further two LNG/battery hybrid PCTCs (pure car/truck-carriers) next year, following the launch of the first in the series of 3,600-car capacity ships in Shanghai on Monday (pictured below).The ships are equipped with dual-fuel LNG engines for main propulsion and auxiliaries, while battery power will, for instance, help reduce emissions while the ships are in port.“These ships prove that decarbonisation of the industry is possible using currently available technologies,” said UECC CEO Glenn Edvardsen.

first_imgRelatedYouth Sensitised About Rights and Responsibilities as Citizens FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Students from 24 corporate area high schools yesterday (April 23) participated in a special youth forum, aimed at increasing awareness of their rights and responsibilities as Jamaican citizens.The event, held at the Mona Visitor’s Lodge at the University of the West Indies, was in keeping with a series of islandwide fora being staged by the Police Civilian Oversight Authority (PCOA) under the theme: ‘Get it right by knowing your rights in order to build a better Jamaica.’ Sessions have already been held in St. James, Westmoreland, and Clarendon.Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the PCOA, Dave McIntosh, said the fora were aimed at instilling good values and a sense of citizenry in the nation’s youth, which would enable them “to go through life with a very firm framework of how you should act as a proper citizen in society.”In knowing their rights, roles and responsibilities as good citizens, he said, they would be able to “go forward in society and resolve issues that will arise without it getting to the stage that we are going to have tragedy and conflict.”Public Education and Special Projects Manager in the Office of the Children’s Advocate, Georgia Garvey, praised the PCOA for their proactive approach “in their attempt to promote good citizenry through engaging our children”.“This forum is a clear indication that, as a society, we are moving away from the notion that children are to be seen and not heard and embracing the reality that children have a right to be informed, to express themselves, and to have their own views taken into consideration,” she stated.Miss Garvey noted that child participation was one of the guiding principles of the United Nation’s Convention on the Rights of the Child and was also a key aspect of the work of the Office of the Children’s Advocate.“We are mandated by the Child Care and Protection Act, which was passed in 2004, to promote and protect children’s rights in Jamaica, and this includes the child’s right to participation. Participatory rights extend to the child’s right to be informed and to express themselves and to be heard,” she noted.She pointed out however, that while children have the right to express their views, they have the responsibility to do so in a respectful and responsible manner. “It is very disheartening, for example, to watch the television and to see students blocking school gates and preventing persons from coming into the school because they have a disagreement with the school administration.“Frankly, this sort of behaviour reflects poorly on our students, on our schools, and on society at large and whether or not we believe it, it also exposes our children to significant moral and physical danger,” she stated, noting that children need to be taught alternative ways to solve disagreements, while exercising their right to be heard.Miss Garvey also urged parents to listen to their children more.As part of the forum’s activities, students got the opportunity to learn from and interact with several youth facilitators from the Dispute Resolution Foundation on how to resolve differences and situations that may arise at school.The PCOA has oversight for the implementation of the policies of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) and its auxiliaries. It monitors the performance of the force to ensure that internationally acceptable standards of policing are maintained, reports on such matters, and conducts inspection of the force and its auxiliaries, among other duties.

Fishing will never be truly sustainable if it comes with a tragic human cost.“The world needs a way to break the link between lucrative economies and international illegal fishing, and it needs leadership from the largest seafood markets to box out this illicit trade.

first_imgNotably, Kurnick has been working with modern Maya people in the community of Punta Laguna in the Yucatán peninsula. There, residents have developed their own eco-tourism venture based around a nature reserve of the same name. Tourism is huge in this area of Mexico, and much of it is based around Maya culture, explains Kurnick. The appropriation of Maya culture is very lucrative for the tourism industry, but contemporary Maya people often do not reap any benefits.Kurnick’s project, launched in 2014, aims to document the Maya archaeological site within the nature reserve and to work collaboratively with residents of Punta Laguna to learn about Maya history. Punta Laguna residents can then use this information to bolster the appeal of their tours and local economy.  Many may think that pseudo-archaeological claims—like aliens built the pyramids or we are all descendant from inhabitants of the lost continent of Atlantis—are just silly or strange. But these claims are often at their core racist and do significant harm to contemporary marginalized groups.” Kurnick says such “pseudo-archaeology” has seized the popular imagination, often to the detriment of contemporary indigenous communities like the Maya.She will address this issue in a talk, titled “Ancient Aliens and Contemporary Archaeology,” at 1 p.m. March 16 at the Jenny Smoly Caruthers Biotechnology Building in the Butcher Auditorium. The lecture, which is free and open to the public, is part of the CU Boulder Office for Outreach and Engagement’s CU on the Weekend, a series of informational talks given by CU faculty doing engaging work.“Pseudo-archaeology is everywhere. It is on TV, in movies, and in books,” says Kurnick. “And because of its popularity and omnipresence, pseudo-archaeology is the primary way that most people get information about the human past. Many may think that pseudo-archaeological claims—like aliens built the pyramids or we are all descendant from inhabitants of the lost continent of Atlantis—are just silly or strange. But these claims are often at their core racist and do significant harm to contemporary marginalized groups.”Kurnick, a specialist on the ancient Maya people, focuses her work on contemporary inequalities and how popular perceptions of the ancestors of indigenous peoples—perceptions often caused and reinforced by pseudo-archaeology—buttress these inequalities. Pseudo-archaeology does this by discounting the historical significance of certain accomplishments, such as attributing the pyramids to aliens.
