Weather rollercoaster

first_imgWeather this fall and winter should be very variable across Georgia and an early freeze and extreme cold weather is expected, according to the University of Georgia’s state climatologist.“There is a high likelihood that south Georgia will experience lows between 20 and 25 oF. [Temperatures in the] teens are not out of the realm of possibility,” said David Stooksbury, UGA state climatologist. “In middle Georgia, lows in the low teens to single digits are expected, while the mountains can expect lows around zero or below.”Associated with the variable nature of this winter’s weather, Stooksbury says cold periods will be separated by relative mild periods. “It will seem as if the air temperature is on a roller coaster,” he said.Precipitation is expected to be near normal, but “because of the variability in temperatures, more than normal snow [fall] would not be a surprise,” he said. The amount of snow depends on the right combination of cold air and moisture. With more variable conditions, the likelihood of the necessary combination for snow occurring is increased.Unlike recent years, neither El Nino or La Nina weather patterns are expected to develop this fall and winter. Without either pattern, the atmosphere is considered to be in a neutral pattern. “Under the neutral weather pattern, the southeast is more easily invaded by cold air from Canada,” said Stooksbury. “However, Georgia is far enough south that the cold air is usually modified within a few days.”With more Canadian cold fronts expected this fall and winter, the likelihood of severe weather including thunderstorms and tornados is higher. Severe weather during the fall and winter is common across the state.“In Georgia, severe weather can occur at any time,” he said. “Tornado outbreaks at night are just as likely as during the day.”Stooksbury says he views the purchase of a NOAA weather radio as a wise investment to help insure your family’s personal safety.“An inexpensive NOAA weather radio can warn of impending danger as well as give updated weather conditions and forecasts,” he said.Farmers and gardeners alike should plan ahead for the up-coming weather conditions.“Agricultural producers and home gardeners should plan for high variability in fall and winter temperatures,” said Stooksbury. “Late in the winter, the primary concern will be plants breaking dormancy before the last hard freeze.” Because of the expected cold weather extremes, energy demand for heating is expected to be high this fall and winter, too, he added.(David Emory Stooksbury is the state climatologist and a professor of engineering and atmospheric sciences in the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.)last_img read more

Recent developments show progress for Puerto Rico utility

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The Bond Buyer ($):The Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority moved closer to restoring its credit, as it canceled a plan for a natural gas port and received five bids for its transmission and distribution system.The developments are both financially positive for the authority, Moody’s Investors Service analyst Rick Donner said Tuesday. Last month the authority canceled a plan to build a natural gas port that had been criticized as costly and possibly inflationary, depending on gas prices, and on Dec. 6 the governor announced the authority received the bids for its grid.Puerto Rico’s Public Private Partnership Authority will evaluate the bids, [Gov. Ricardo Rosselló] said. Puerto Rico hopes to pick one of them by December 2019, Donner said.How this process and the sale of PREPA’s power generation facilities will affect the debt isn’t fully clear yet, Donner said. The local government plans to use some of the proceeds to pay off the debt. How much of the debt could be paid off this way remains to be seen.In late November PREPA canceled plans for building an offshore natural gas port at Aguirre, on the south coast. The authority had been preparing for this port since 2010 and it was its chief planned capital project since at least 2012.“Natural gas investments in Puerto Rico are expensive and risky,” said Tom Sanzillo, director of finance at Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis. “The island’s fiscal plan prioritizes renewable energy investments because they are cheaper and anti-inflationary. If implemented it gives Puerto Rico a fighting chase to recover and grow.”More ($): PREPA’s moves to rebuild its system seen as positive Recent developments show progress for Puerto Rico utilitylast_img read more

Ratings agency sees 15GW of hybrid wind-solar projects coming online in India by 2024

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享ET Energyworld.com:As the government continues to focus on increasing the share of renewable energy in the country, nearly 15,000 MW of wind-solar hybrid capacity is expected to come up over the next five years, Crisil said. [Crisil is an Indian ratings agency; it is a subsidiary of S&P Global.] Out of this 15,000 MW, works on nearly 10,000 MW are already either under construction or are being tendered and are expected to start feeding the grid by fiscal 2024.In the hybrid option, the system is designed using solar panels and small wind turbines generators for generating electricity.“We expect the hybrid market to grow and evolve as the number of projects and developers who seek to unlock value from the hybrid increases. Riding on strong support from central public sector undertaking Solar Energy Corporation of India and several state governments, we expect nearly 15,000 MW of hybrid capacity will come up over the next five years,” Crisil Director Rahul Prithiani said.According to the ratings agency, since generation of solar energy tends to peak during the day and that of wind energy at night, the resulting intermittence in supply impacts grid resilience, making discoms reluctant to buy power from standalone wind and solar projects. “In the hybrid option, however, these two energy sources complement each other, which could help overcome the problems of variability of generation and grid security, and thereby discoms’ reluctance,” Crisil said.As of March 2020, India had 37,690 MW of standalone wind energy capacity and 35,000 MW of solar capacity.The agency further said that currently there are proposals to set up 3,900 MW of pure-play hybrid projects, and another 4,500 MW of hybrid projects with energy storage systems.More: About 15,000 MW of wind-solar hybrid capacity to come up in 5 years: Crisil Ratings agency sees 15GW of hybrid wind-solar projects coming online in India by 2024last_img read more

Colombian Air Force Announces Transformation Process

first_imgBy Yolima Dussán/Diálogo July 07, 2017 Three large commands and a general staff will serve as the operational foundation for the new Colombian Air Force (FAC, per its Spanish acronym) structure, laid out after a transformation process involving two years of analysis and planning. The plan was presented to the country on June 1, at the Aeronautical Museum facilities, headquarters of the FAC Center for Historical Memory. The process is part of a major renovation program being conducted by Colombia as part of Armed Forces 2030, a medium- and long-term government policy based on capability planning methodology. Under the new organizational structure, the general staff shall have the responsibility of formulating the strategy for the continual improvement of internal procedures through the work of the Air Operations Command, in charge of sovereignty protection, defense procedures, and air space control. The Force Support Command shall be responsible for handling logistics, as well as administrative and technical department procedural support. For its part, Personnel Command shall be responsible for administering human resources and the training of FAC officers, noncommissioned officers, and soldiers. “Through this transformation, we seek a versatile, interoperable military, with performance capability that meets international and operational deployment standards. It will be more effective and specialized, with greater control over human and financial resources, with simplified procedures, and improved threat response times,” General of the Air Force Carlos Eduardo Bueno Vargas, commander of the FAC, told Diálogo. The Air Force will not turn back “We are transforming the way we do things in order to meet international interoperability standards. We are moving on from the concept of symmetrical defense in order to boost the nation’s defense capabilities,” explained Gen. Bueno. “We have changed how we organize and deploy human potential in accordance with the times. We have also become more effective in managing our human, technical, and economic resources.” FAC is a leading force in the region. Daily activities include collaboration with other countries suffering from natural disasters, as well as air control operations. This forms part of the joint United States-Colombia Action Plan, through which the two countries train pilots and air defense personnel from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and the Dominican Republic on flight interdiction. Upon completion of this transformation, the force expects to increase collaboration among the countries of Latin America. It will have improved capability to act in a simultaneous, rapid, and efficient manner. “Much of what we are now, we learned from international exercises. We will have the same standards as a squadron of U.S. Air Force F-16s, for example. Another example is that our tanker plane pilots can now provide fuel to British squadrons or United States squadrons,” added Gen. Bueno. The Harpy Eagle, a new symbol Up until now, the image of FAC was the Bald Eagle, the symbol of the U.S. Air Force, a country historically connected with the Colombian Armed Forces. FAC now moves to the Harpy Eagle as a symbol of its transformation. The bird was selected because it flies throughout South America and is especially prevalent in Colombian territory. The new symbol serves as a sign of the country’s new doctrine. “We owe an immense debt to the United States, to their institutions, and to their Air Force because their support helped us gain this military victory which has ushered the country into the post-conflict era. I had the opportunity to study in United States schools, where I met many of the generals that currently command the air forces of the world,” said Gen. Bueno at the new FAC’s announcement ceremony. “They taught us values, principles, a democratic vision, assertiveness, and the tools for creating a sound air campaign. For this reason, [we would like to send] a message of gratitude, admiration, and recognition to the U.S. Air Force, an eternal ally which allowed us to share its symbol.” Impacting operational security “In the face of this institutional reorganization, we must seek a dynamic equilibrium in our force which will allow us to maintain high operational standards. [We hope to do] this without losing sight, during the cultural transformation, of what will always hold the same level of importance for us – security,” Major General Ramses Rueda Rueda, the operational security inspector of FAC, told Diálogo. FAC has the highest operational security standards in the region. There were zero accidents during 2016 operations. “A security approach, strengthened by the human factor, will put emphasis on our personnel’s capacity to respond, monitor, anticipate, and learn beyond the simple matter of managing errors,” added Maj. Gen. Rueda. “Obviously, the strategy is supported by other units which add value to their technological capacity, and advanced and professional technical training, which permits the development of not only investigative and preventive behaviors but also proactive and predictive ones.” The foundation of the transformation has been laid. Now the transition begins – a planned implementation over the next six months. As of January 2018, FAC will operate according to the new organizational outlines. Currently, the entity is moving forward with the required administrative and legal procedures and preparing the final performance manuals for each of the new units. “Our new evolution is built to last. It has been very well thought out in light of our new challenges. This is our answer to a Colombia which sees in our institution, not just a force which guarantees the security of our airspace, but a contingent of men and women ready to help,” said Gen. Bueno. “These are pilots who arrive in the middle of the night to rescue [someone] in the middle of the jungle, to evacuate a soldier wounded by a snakebite, or who lost a leg because of a landmine, or teams that have been trained to deal with natural disasters. We feel extremely proud of this social component. With respect to that, as well as to our constitutional mission, we respond with this transformation for the next 100 years,” he concluded.last_img read more

ABA panel offers MJP recommendations

first_imgABA panel offers MJP recommendations ABA panel offers MJP recommendations June 15, 2002 Managing Editor Regular Newscenter_img Mark D. Killian Managing Editor The ABA’s Commission on Multijurisdictional Practice has released a set of recommendations that continue support for the principle of state judicial licensing and regulation of lawyers and sets out circumstances in which a lawyer may practice law on a temporary basis in another jurisdiction.“Attorneys and their clients need a comprehensive solution for multijurisdictional practice that acknowledges the reality of a modern economy: Attorneys routinely participate in legal matters outside their states of bar admission,” according to New Jersey’s Wayne J. Positan, the ABA commission’s chair. “These proposals will enable lawyers to meet the emerging needs of clients consistent with the state regulatory interest in protecting clients and the public through an effective and efficient enforcement mechanism.”Positan said for the present, the judicial branch in each state should identify those particular interstate practices — comparable to pro hac vice representation — that should explicitly be authorized, because client choice and other interests in favor of multijurisdictional law practice outweigh the countervailing regulatory interests.“The commission believes that allowing such practices will not only serve the public interest, but also improve obedience to and enforcement of the applicable rules,” Positan said.The ABA House of Delegates will debate and vote on the model rules concerning MJPs at its August meeting in Washington, D.C.As this News went to press, Lori Holcomb, director of the Bar’s Unlicensed Practice of Law Department, said The Florida Bar’s Special Commission on MJPs was still reviewing the ABA’s recommendations and has yet to determine its next step. In March, the Board of Governors bound its eight ABA House of Delegates members to advocate in support of specific safe harbors that are clearly identified and set out, rather than a general category of safe harbors with illustrations.Miami’s Alan Dimond, a member of the ABA MJP panel, said the Florida MJP commission did a “super job” of analyzing the ABA’s interim report and should be pleased with the final report because it incorporates “an awful lot of the thought processes” from the Florida recommendations.“Of all the Bars in America I don’t believe any focused more care and attention than did The Florida Bar,” Dimond said. “And I don’t think The Florida Bar will be the least bit disappointed with the final product.”Dimond said the proposed recommendations are basically a codification of the current practice of law and will allow Florida lawyers to go about doing their day-to-day business without fear that their services to their clients are going to result in jurisdictional problems in other places.“That comfort level is predicated on my assumption that Florida lawyers are going to read these recommendations, understand what the safe harbors are, and not exceed them,” said Dimond, a former Florida Bar president.“We searched for the proper balance between the interests of a state in protecting its residents and justice system, on the one hand; and the interests of clients in a national and international economy in the ability to employ or retain counsel of choice efficiently and economically,” Positan said. “A key word here is ‘balance.’ Our challenges did not lend themselves to mathematical solutions. Rather, accommodating our state-based system of bar admission, which we fully support, with the realities of modern life and our tradition of respect for client choice required the exercise of informed judgment.”Rather than providing an array of exemptions to current rules, the ABA commission’s final report offers “comprehensive, common sense guidelines for attorneys who practice across state lines,” said Frederick J. Krebs, president of the Washington-based American Corporate Counsel Association. “The current rules were developed in the 19th century, and sorely need revision. We no longer practice in a world carefully demarcated by state boundary lines, and the rules of practice should reflect business realities of the 21st century.”The commission’s recommendations are, in summary, that:1. The ABA affirm its support for the principle of state judicial regulation of the practice of law.2. The ABA re-title Rule 5.5 of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct as “Unauthorized Practice of Law; Multijurisdictional Practice of Law.”The ABA amend Rule 5.5(a) of the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct to provide that a lawyer may not practice law in a jurisdiction, or assist another in doing so, in violation of the regulations of the legal profession in that jurisdiction.The ABA adopt proposed Rule 5.5(b) to prohibit a lawyer from establishing an office or other systematic and continuous presence in a jurisdiction, unless permitted to do so by law, or another provision of Rule 5.5; or holding out to the public or otherwise representing that the lawyer is admitted to practice law in a jurisdiction in which the lawyer is not admitted.The ABA adopt proposed Rule 5.5(c) to identify circumstances in which a lawyer who is admitted in a United States jurisdiction, and not disbarred or suspended from practice in any jurisdiction, may practice law on a temporary basis in another jurisdiction. These would include:• Work on a temporary basis in association with a lawyer admitted to practice law in the jurisdiction, who actively participates in the representation;• Services ancillary to pending or prospective litigation or administrative agency proceedings in a state where the lawyer is admitted or expects to be admitted pro hac vice or is otherwise authorized to appear;• Representation of clients in, or ancillary to, an alternative dispute resolution setting, such as arbitration or mediation; and• Non-litigation work that arises out of or is reasonably related to the lawyer’s practice in a jurisdiction in which the lawyer is admitted to practice.The ABA adopt proposed Rule 5.5(d) to identify multijurisdictional practice standards relating to (i) legal services by a lawyer who is an employee of a client and (ii) legal services that the lawyer is authorized by federal or other law to render in a jurisdiction in which the lawyer is not licensed to practice law.3. The ABA amend Rule 8.5 of the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct in order to clarify the authority of a jurisdiction to discipline lawyers licensed in another jurisdiction who practice law within their jurisdiction pursuant to the provisions of Rule 5.5 or other law.4. The ABA amend Rules 6 and 22 of the ABA Model Rules for Lawyer Disciplinary Enforcement to promote effective disciplinary enforcement with respect to lawyers who engage in the multijurisdictional practice of law and to renew efforts to encourage states to adopt Rule 22, which provides for reciprocal discipline.5. The ABA renew efforts to promote interstate disciplinary enforcement mechanisms through its National Lawyer Regulatory Data Bank by: a) urging state supreme courts to adopt the International Standard Lawyer Numbering System®; b) promoting implementation of the McKay Report recommendation that jurisdictions require lawyers to report, to the lawyer regulatory agency in the jurisdiction in which they are licensed, all other jurisdictions in which they are licensed and any status changes in those other jurisdictions; c) utilizing the ABA Web site to implement direct electronic reporting to the ABA National Lawyer Regulatory Data Bank; and d) placing public information from the ABA National Lawyer Regulatory Data Bank on the ABA’s Web site.6. The ABA adopt the proposed Model Rule on Pro Hac Vice Admission to govern the admission of lawyers to practice law before courts and administrative agencies pro hac vice in jurisdictions in which the lawyer is not admitted to practice.7. With regard to the establishment of a law practice on a permanent basis in a jurisdiction in which a lawyer is not admitted to practice, the ABA adopt the proposed Model Rule on Admission by Motion to facilitate the licensing of the lawyer, if the lawyer is admitted to practice in another United States jurisdiction, has been engaged in the active practice of law for a significant period of time, and is in good standing in all jurisdictions where admitted.8. With regard to lawyers admitted to practice only in non-United States jurisdictions, the ABA encourage United States jurisdictions to adopt the ABA Model Rule for the Licensing of Legal Consultants or to conform their already existing rule to the Model Rule.9. With regard to lawyers who seek to provide legal services in the United States and are admitted to practice law only in non-United States jurisdictions, the ABA adopt the proposed Model Rule on Temporary Practice by Foreign Lawyers to identify circumstances where it is not the unauthorized practice of law for a lawyer admitted in a non-United States jurisdiction to provide legal services on a temporary basis for a client in a United States jurisdiction.10. The ABA encourage the adoption and implementation of its policies governing the multijurisdictional practice of law and continue to monitor developments relating to this practice.The ACCA’s Krebs said if adopted the ABA recommendations will ensure that clients receive the best legal advice from the attorneys of their choice, without the need to hire new counsel in every state in which they do business.“Clients will be the real winners in admissions reform,” said Krebs. “They will be free to choose the best qualified counsel, and to seek their assistance in whatever state in which they do business. We commend the ABA commission report as much needed, and overdue, reform.”last_img read more

Indonesia records 20-year low inflation around Idul Fitri as pandemic upends purchasing power

first_imgIndonesia booked record low inflation in May leading up to Idul Fitri as the COVID-19 outbreak upended demand and reined in consumer spending, Statistics Indonesia (BPS) announced Tuesday.The consumer price index (CPI) stood at 0.07 percent in May, the lowest in 20 years and lower than the 0.55 percent recorded in June last year, when Idul Fitri was celebrated. The annual inflation rate was recorded at 2.19 percent, much lower than the 3.32 percent in May last year and the 3.28 percent in June last year.Meanwhile, core inflation stood at 0.06 percent in May, bringing the annual rate to 2.65 percent, while administered prices saw inflation of 0.67 percent. Volatile food prices saw deflation of 0.5 percent. “The uncertainty surrounding the economy has made the inflation level very unusual and much lower than in previous years, as demand usually spikes during the Idul Fitri holiday,” BPS head Suhariyanto said in a livestreamed news conference. “We need to work on boosting people’s purchasing power.”May’s figure marks the lowest Idul Fitri inflation level in the country’s 74 year history, as during the Muslim holiday people usually participate in mudik (exodus), family gatherings and mass shopping sprees that boost demand.This year, the government banned mudik and several regions nationwide implemented large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) to contain the COVID-19 outbreak, leaving millions of people out of work. The virus had infected at least 26,900 people as of Monday afternoon, according to official data, since the government announced the first two confirmed cases in early March.BPS data revealed that the highest level of inflation, 0.87 percent, was seen in the transportation sector in May, followed by the health sector with 0.27 percent. However, the food, beverage and tobacco segment saw 0.32 percent deflation, as food prices dropped amid the pandemic. “The transportation sector recorded the highest inflation driven by rising prices of airline and train tickets, despite the government’s appeals for people not to travel,” Suhariyanto said. “However, it was very low compared to previous years.”Despite the mudik ban, the government still allows certain officials and individuals to travel after providing certain documents and requires airlines and bus and train operators to limit passenger numbers to 50 percent capacity.Bank Indonesia (BI) Governor Perry Warjiyo said last week that this month’s inflation level was driven by low consumer demand and weak commodity prices, among other things, adding that inflation would remain within the central bank’s target of 2 to 4 percent this year.“Several factors caused May’s inflation to be low, such as COVID-19, which has lowered demand for goods, and weakening global commodity prices,” Perry said. “Another factor is that the rupiah exchange rate remained stable, while inflation expectations anchored.”The rupiah appreciated more than 13 percent from a recent low of Rp 16,575, a level unseen since the 1998 financial crisis, to Rp 14,415 on Tuesday, Bloomberg data show.“Going forward, inflationary risks throughout 2020 are well balanced between global disinflation on the back of plunging energy prices and potential supply distortions due to measures to withstand COVID-19,” Bank Danamon economist Wisnu Wardana wrote in a research note, adding that the bank forecast this year’s inflation to be 2.85 percent.“We do not see inflation as a factor that may alter BI’s ongoing accommodative stance,” said Wisnu. “Although the low inflation level opens room for BI to lower its benchmark rate, the current priority is to maintain exchange rate stability.”  The central bank decided to leave its benchmark interest rate unchanged at 4.5 percent at a monthly meeting in May as it aimed to safeguard the stability of the financial market while ensuring sufficient liquidity for the country’s banking sector amid the economic impacts of COVID-19.“While we are watching BI’s stance closely, we maintain our view that BI will hold its benchmark rate,” Bank Mandiri economist Andry Asmoro said. “The factors limiting further policy rate cuts are potential risk in the balance of payment in 2020, specifically from the financial account side, which may affect the stability of the rupiah’s exchange rate and the higher fiscal deficit projection of above 6 percent of GDP.”He projected this year’s inflation to reach 2.69 percent, higher than last year’s 2.59 percent, due to increasing gold prices amid higher uncertainty in the financial market, increased supply of money from the economic stimulus and higher prices of imported food.Topics :last_img read more
