Mudslide shows Schenectady must heed warnings

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionThe mudslide on Nott Terrace was a preventable occurrence. After the mudslide that destroyed the gas station, Catherine Greene, the owner of the house on Barney Street at the time, was interested to know if her property was at risk. She was advised of how to stabilize the property that included the hill that just collapsed. It was more than she could afford. When she approached the city for possible assistance, she was told there was nothing to worry about. The city continued to put up to 12-foot snowbanks in front of the house, despite a collapsing street. The city has had 20 years to avoid this mudslide. What other threats are being neglected in the city? Although Catherine is now passed away, residents and community leaders should still be listened to about needs in their communities.Mark TownsendLaconia, New HampshireThe writer is a former resident and worked with Catherine Greene in the Vale Community Organization. More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsSchenectady department heads: Budget cutbacks would further stress already-stretched departmentsSchenectady man dies following Cutler Street dirt bike crashSchenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%Schenectady High School senior class leaders look to salvage sense of normalcylast_img read more

Eni adds acreage offshore Argentina to its portfolio

first_imgThe Argentinian authorities have officially awarded the exploration license of offshore block MLO 124 to an Eni-led consortium.Eni said on Monday that the award is the outcome of the consortium’s successful bid in the International Bid Round “Ronda Costa Afuera n. 1” held on April 16, 2019.A total of 38 blocks were on offer in the licensing round, the first open bid round for Argentinean offshore acreage in more than 20 years.Block MLO 124 is located offshore in the Cuenca Marina Malvinas (the Malvinas Basin), some 100 kilometers off the coast of Tierra del Fuego, and encompasses an area of 4,418 square kilometers in water depths ranging from less than 100 to 650 meters.Eni holds 80% working interest and is the operator of a consortium, which also includes Tecpetrol S.A. and Mitsui & Co. Ltd., with 10% each.The activity to be completed during the four years of the First Phase of the Exploration Period mainly consists in a 3D geophysical survey covering the entire block and other geophysical potential field surveys.Eni has been present in Argentina since 1991 with its subsidiary Eni Argentina Exploración y Explotación S.A., which owns a 30% working interest in the offshore concession “Tauro-Sirius”, located in Tierra del Fuego’s shallow water.It is worth reminding that ExxonMobil increased holdings in Argentina after its subsidiary ExxonMobil Argentina Offshore Investments and an affiliate of Qatar Petroleum won three exploration blocks during Argentina’s first offshore bid round. The award added approximately 2.6 million net acres to its existing holdings in Argentina. ExxonMobil was named the operator of the blocks with a 70 percent working interest and a Qatar Petroleum affiliate was awarded the remaining 30 percent.Furthermore, Norwegian Equinor added seven offshore exploration blocks in Argentina to its portfolio – five as the operator and two as a partner – as part of the country’s first Offshore Licensing Round.Spotted a typo?

Rupert Roopnaraine quits Government

first_imgWeeks after he was demoted from Education Minister and placed to work within the Ministry of the Presidency, Working People’s Alliance (WPA) Executive Member, Dr Rupert Roopnaraine has resigned from both Parliament and Government.President David GrangerPresident David Granger on Wednesday confirmed that he did receive a resignation letter from the WPA co-leader, but is yet to make a determination, as the former Education Minister could only resign if his letter was approved by the Head of State.“I received a letter from Dr Roopnaraine, the contents of which I will not disclose. But he cannot resign until I accept a resignation, and as far as I am concerned, I have not done so.”As of now, Dr Roopnaraine remains a member of Cabinet, the President assured.Guyana Times understands that the letter was given to the President on Sunday after WPA executives met with Roopnaraine.On Wednesday, WPA Executive Member, Dr David Hinds told this publication that the party was fully consulted on Dr Roopnaraine’s decision.“We met with him and after listening to his reasons, we agreed with his decision to resign from Government. In the final analysis, it is Dr Roopnaraine’s decision to make and he has made that decision and the party supports his decision,” Hinds told this newspaper.He said the party would hold on to the reasons given by Roopnaraine for his resignation for now and await the conclusion of a meeting the President has with the WPA co- leader.According to Hinds, he could not say if the President, who was expected to meet with Roopnaraine on Wednesday, would be able to influence him to change his mind.“What I can say is that he (Dr Roopnaraine) was very firm in his decision to resign. What happens when he meets with the President, that is a matter for him and the President, but I can tell you that he was very firm in his decision to leave Government.”With Roopnaraine’s resignation, Government will need to replace a Member of Parliament in the National Assembly. Hinds said the WPA hoped that with the President’s stated commitment to the inclusion of all coalition party members in Government that a request would be made for a WPA replacement. He said the party was prepared for such.What seemed to be a small falling-out between the People’s National Congress (PNC)-led A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) and the WPA came to the fore days after President Granger announced in June that the former Education Minister had been asked to head the Public Service Ministry, a new ministry created within the Ministry of the Presidency.The WPA had raised concerns that the move by Government was a premature one and the party was never consulted on the matter. It had also asked that Dr Roopnaraine be vindicated, following the results of the 2017 National Grade Six Assessment (NGSA), which showed a stark improvement in the critical areas of Mathematics and English. The President had said that Roopnaraine was re-assigned to lead improvements in the Public Sector.It is not clear if the Minister’s demotion was the reason for his resignation.last_img read more
