Study County fares slighter better than state average in distracted driving

first_imgAfter monitoring intersections around the state last year, researchers estimated 9.2 percent of all drivers spotted were somehow distracted, and most of them were fiddling with their phones. Clark County fared slightly better: 7.4 percent of observed drivers were not paying attention.Throughout one day in May, teams of survey-takers with the Washington State Traffic Safety Commission went to a proportional selection of intersections, out of 300, in each county and recorded what they saw. They recorded the behavior of more than 22,300 drivers.Researchers with the commission chose their intersections randomly, from the 23 counties in the state with 50 or more (there are 6,279 intersections in the state’s incorporated areas). Many things can distract a driver, but the researchers were watching for cellphone use, specifically.Most of the distracted drivers the monitors saw, 5.6 percent of them, were holding a cellphone. Another 1.3 percent were holding one to their ear, according to the study.The survey methods were based on seat belt-use monitoring surveys the commission has conducted for years, said Angie Ward, program manager at the commission.last_img read more

Garrison Keillor says he was fired over alleged improper behavior

first_imgMINNEAPOLIS — Garrison Keillor, the former host of “A Prairie Home Companion,” said Wednesday he has been fired by Minnesota Public Radio over allegations of improper behavior.Keillor told The Associated Press of his firing in an email. In a follow-up statement, he said he was fired over “a story that I think is more interesting and more complicated than the version MPR heard.” He didn’t give details of the allegation.“It’s some sort of poetic irony to be knocked off the air by a story, having told so many of them myself, but I’m 75 and don’t have any interest in arguing about this. And I cannot in conscience bring danger to a great organization I’ve worked hard for since 1969,” Keillor said.“A person could not hope for more than what I was given,” he said.Minnesota Public Radio confirmed Keillor had been fired, saying it received a single allegation of “inappropriate behavior” and doesn’t know of any other similar allegations. MPR said it was notified of the allegation last month and that it stemmed from Keillor’s conduct when he was responsible for producing “A Prairie Home Companion.”Keillor retired as host of his long-running public radio variety show in 2016. His hand-picked successor, mandolinist Chris Thile, is in his second season as “Prairie Home” host. After Keillor retired from the show, he continued to work with MPR on other projects.last_img read more

Murray Cantwell urge ICE to end phone call practice

first_imgDemocratic U.S. Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell of Washington were joined by 141 colleagues from the Senate and House in urging U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials to change a newly unveiled practice they branded “callous, shameless, and completely unjustified.”Reports showed parents separated from their children at the border are being charged up to $8 a minute to speak with those children on the phone.Since the Trump administration began separating parents crossing the border from their children earlier this year, more than 2,400 families have been impacted.“Many of the thousands of mothers and fathers affected by this policy are currently being detained in ICE facilities across the country, hundreds or thousands of miles away from their children,” the letter sent to ICE reads. “Reports and firsthand accounts have indicated that many of these detained parents have been forced to endure weeks without any information as to the location of their children.”If their children are located, parents are reportedly then being charged for telephone calls, some of which are limited to once a week.last_img read more

Is Forest Ridge ripe for revival

first_imgThe Great Recession and its impact on the housing turned many communities upside down and forced thousands of people out of their homes. Vancouver’s Forest Ridge neighborhood was not immune.“Twelve years ago, we had a real community feel, and I miss that,” said Chloe Yager, a longtime Forest Ridge resident. She said the neighborhood transitioned during the housing crisis from one with many homeowners to one with many renters who cycled in and out of the community. As a result, neighborhood ties weakened and property upkeep slipped.“With the housing crisis, we went from a lot of homeowners to renters,” she said. “But we’re gradually getting back to that and seeing more things getting better taken care of.”Yager and a few of her neighbors think the time is right to re-establish the community feel they say Forest Ridge once had. The best way to do it is giving their community something to rally around, and they hope a revived neighborhood association will be the right cause.Now, Yager and a few of her neighbors are putting out the call to Forest Ridge residents to see if they’d be interested in re-activating their association. They’re hosting a meeting 6 p.m. Oct. 18 at Henrietta Lacks Health & Bioscience High School, 9105 N.E. Ninth St., Vancouver.last_img read more

HOW MUCH GREENHOUSE GASES DO AGRICULTURAL PRACTICES EMIT IN THE ATMOSPHERE

HOW MUCH GREENHOUSE GASES DO AGRICULTURAL PRACTICES EMIT IN THE ATMOSPHERE

first_imgmanagement, live stock waste from enteric fermentation in cattle, manure management, fossil fuel consumption from transportation and processing, and others. Each of these sources is discussed below along with possible ways of reducing emissions. The percentage of GHG emissions from each agricultural practice in The Gambia is sourced from The Gambia Second National Communications to the UNFCCC document which was published by the UNFCCC in 2012.Agricultural Soil Management Nitrous oxide emissions from agricultural soils and bush and crop residue burning account for 10 percent of the total emissions from the agricultural sector. In a developed world like the United States of America, this accounts for about 60 percent of the total emissions from the agricultural sector (USEPA 1990 – 2005). Nitrous oxide is produced naturally in soils through the microbial processes of nitrification and de-nitrification. This simply means the decomposition of soil organic matter. In between the nitrification and de-nitrification processes, nitrous oxide is produced.The large increase in the use of nitrogen fertilizer ( ex. compound fertilizer or urea) for the production of a high nitrogen-consuming crop like corn has increased the emissions of nitrous oxide worldwide. Although nitrogen fertilizer is essential for increasing crop production, the development of practices for more efficiently using nitrogen fertilizer has the potential to significantly reduce nitrous oxide emissions while also reducing production costs and mitigating the nitrogen contamination of surface and ground waters. This means that if you apply nitrogen fertilizer to your crops, DO NOT broadcast it. Broadcasting means applying the fertilizer by throwing it everywhere in the crop field. Instead, use band application. Band application is when you place the fertilizer at least six inches from the stems of crops in a row and bury it in the soil. In this way the crop will efficiently use the fertilizer and less of that fertilizer will emit nitrous oxide in the atmosphere. You will also not waste the amount of your fertilizer as opposed to when you broadcast it.Enteric Fermentation Methane is produced as part of the normal digestive processes in animals, mostly cattle. During digestion, microbes in the animal’s digestive system ferment feed. This process, called enteric fermentation, produces methane as a by-product which can be emitted by the exhaling and belching of the animal. Because of their unique digestive system, ruminant animals (e.g. cattle) are the major emitters of methane. Beef cattle account for about 70 percent and dairy cattle for about 25 percent of these methane emissions in the US. It is worth noting that in the US, cattle rearing is entirely done in a confined environment where there is less movement of the cattle. Because of that management system, these cattle give off more methane than expected. However, in The Gambia, the combination of animal husbandry, rice cultivation, and bush and crop residue burning account for 51 percent of total emissions. The cattle rearing system in The Gambia is characterized by a free range system where the cattle freely move about and travel long distances each day grazing on natural vegetation. In this type of management system, less methane gas is given off. Therefore, if beef and dairy cattle numbers increase in a confined environment, methane emissions will also increase. Feed qualify and feed intake influence the level of methane emissions. In general, higher feed quality and higher feed intake lead to higher methane emissions.Manure Management Methane is produced by the anaerobic (without oxygen) decomposition of manure. When manure is handled as a solid or deposited naturally on grassland, it decomposes aerobically (with oxygen) and creates little methane emissions. However, manure stored as a liquid or slurry in lagoons, ponds, tanks or pits, as is common in the US, decomposes anaerobically and creates methane emissions. Dairy cattle and pigs produce about 85 percent of the methane emissions in the US. In The Gambia, this percentage is 64. This is because The Gambia has a free range small ruminant and pig management system and their diets are generally of low quality and less in quantity. Methane emissions will increase as the number of large scale livestock confinement systems increases. Methane emissions can be reduced through the application of technologies designed to capture the methane and use it as an energy source. In addition to reducing methane emissions, methane capture will improve the profitability of the livestock operation by offsetting the need for fossil fuel energy from outside sources.Carbon Dioxide from Fossil Fuel Consumption The use of fossil fuels (i.e. diesel or petrol) in agricultural production (ex. by operating tractors on the farm and or using vehicles to transport farm inputs and produce) accounts for eight percent of the emissions from agriculture in the US. The Gambia, however, does not have any percentage emissions for fossil fuel use may be because our farmers seldom use tractors for their field operations. Even the very few who use tractors on their farms, their usage is very limited and it is on seasonal basis only. Using renewable fuels (like using solar-power tractors) can reduce the carbon dioxide emissions from agriculture production.Other A variety of other sources produce greenhouse gas emissions. For example, most of the world’s rice and all of U.S. rice are grown on flooded fields which prevent atmospheric oxygen from entering soil. When rice is grown with no oxygen, the soil organic matter decomposes under anaerobic conditions and produces methane that escapes into the atmosphere and causes emissions. In The Gambia, methane emission under rice production is estimated at 33 percent. In order to reduce emissions from rice cultivation, the rice field should be drained of water at some time of the growth of the crop to minimize anaerobic fermentation.Sidat Yaffa, Ph.D.Contact: slsconsultinggambia@gmail.com ]]>last_img read more

Ninety-one points was a failure for Barcelona? I don’t think it was.”“So in this season, in this Premier League, many clubs had positive seasons, like us, like Tottenham, like Liverpool. But it was impossible because City were really good and consistent and will reach a number of points that makes it impossible for you.”last_img read more

But playing there every week has become tiresome for the team.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“Their players have made noises about looking forward to leaving and playing in their own ground, and you can see why as the atmosphere and turnout isn’t what it could and should be for the national stadium.Although the former West Ham striker cannot see why there should be any issues over Spurs playing at the stadium.“Should they have been allowed to have played there? I don’t see why not,” added Hurst.“It’s important that the FA help English teams when they can, and Spurs have been flying the flag for the country when playing in the Champions League, so it made sense to help them while the stadium was being built.”Now 77 years old, Hurst is renown in England for his exploits on the international stage which famously saw him score a hat-trick against West Germany in the 1966 World Cup final.Overall, Hurst scored 24 times in 49 appearances for the Three Lions and entered the English Football Hall of Fame in 2004.last_img read more

Missick, her Permanent Secretary, Cherly-Ann Jones and the Director of Education, Edgar Howell recently travelled to the Cayman Islands where the trio attended a series of meetings with the Cayman Islands’ Ministry of Education team, discussing technology integration in schools, safer schools and development of new schools structure among other things. Hon. Missick lauded the Cayman Islands education system and says it is one that the Turks and Caicos will strive toward emulating.last_img read more

Conflict after Consultation how OPEN does TCI have to be

first_img Olive branch extended by Opposition Leader, says it is time for Turks and Caicos leaders to unite TCI Country Leaders condemn vicious memes Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 11 Feb 2015 – Those comments from Ed Miliband, UK Labour Party leader over the weekend about poor laws which encourage tax evasion are causing TCIG to cough up information on some public consultations which suggest that the country could be doing a lot better when it comes to transparency; at least to some. This morning, the Minister of Finance shared the results of a ‘Maintenance of Legal & Beneficial Ownership Information’consultation from last year which exposes a low participation rate (by number of responses) and that half who did participate said the laws in the TCI could be better. There were only six respondents; three from outside the country and it was indicated by them that and I quote now: “…the legal and beneficial ownership arrangements were not sufficiently transparent.” Meanwhile, the three local respondents, including the representative body indicated that the Turks and Caicos Islands’ collection and maintenance of beneficial owner information was effective and satisfied international standards. The results of the consultation show a dynamic difference throughout it appears – those on the outside say they like the PM David Cameron’s model for registering companies, those on the inside of the TCI said they do not. Here is what the Ministry of Finance explains: “Of the six respondents, the three international NGOs said they were in favour of a central public registry and the three local respondents, including the representative body, said they were not in favour of a central registry of beneficial ownership information, or of access to such a registry by the public.” But this is what Miliband wants. He wants to see who owns companies, shell companies so that he can move to get what money he believes is missing from Britain’s coffers. TCIG called the consultation useful, adding that the TCI is adhering to the core set of principles as set forth in the G20’s High-Level Principles on Beneficial Ownership Transparency, and that the TCI will continue to monitor other international developments, including the European Union Fourth AML (Anti Money Laundering) Directive. The PNP Administration said it is committed to regular engagement to thwart unscrupulous acts, and that this year there is a proposal to complete a National Risk Assessment, which should identify any further areas for improvement.
