First wind turbine at a Vermont ski area under construction at Bolton Valley Resort

first_imgBolton Valley Resort, a locally owned and operated family ski and snowboard area, has announced construction of a wind turbine that will be operational in late autumn. It is the first wind turbine to be constructed at a Vermont ski area.The turbine will be located near the top of the resort’s Vista Quad lift in an existing clearing adjacent to the ski patrol hut. It is designed to produce in excess of 300,000 kilowatts of power annually, the equivalent of electricity consumed by 40-to-45 Vermont households.“This is a great day for Bolton Valley and our loyal family of skiers and riders,” said Larry Williams, who owns the resort with Doug Nedde. They are Burlington business partners in Redstone Group. “Since acquiring the ski area three years ago we’ve been committed to a program of environmental stewardship in our operations. Adding wind power is a significant investment but will yield tremendous returns for our ski area and Vermont.  We want to thank our skiers and riders for their continued support, which has played a major role in our decision to continue moving forward at Bolton Valley.”The turbine, a Northwind 100 manufactured by Northern Power Systems of Barre, VT measures 121 feet in height from the ground to the top of the tower. The distance from ground to the top of the blade is 156 feet. Each blade is coated with Teflon to protect against icing. It is the same process used on turbines in the Bearing Sea. The turbine will not be obviously visible from beyond five miles away from the site.The turbine will be set up to feed excess power that is not consumed by Bolton Valley into the grid through the Vermont net metering program. It is the first turbine at a Vermont ski area, the second at a New England area and just third at a ski area in the United States.Local contractors, headed up by Alteris Renewables of Montpelier, VT, are being utilized for site preparation and for construction, which is scheduled to be completed in late autumn.Source: (September 10, 2009) BOLTON VALLEY, VT.–last_img read more

Guatemala Asks UN to Seek New Paradigm for Countering Drugs

first_img On October 2, Guatemalan President Otto Pérez requested that the UN look for new paradigms in the fight against drug trafficking, a scourge that causes thousands of deaths each year in Central America. We must “find new paradigms to fight drug trafficking, to unify efforts to confront transnational crime,” Pérez told the press, and requested the international organization to research new combat alternatives. Studies may lead to “convening an international meeting in the future so the countries can give a favorable response,” he added. In a letter sent to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on October 2, Mexico, Colombia, and Guatemala formally requested the UN to head an urgent revision on the global strategy against drugs. Pérez explained that the joint statement was made in a meeting held with his counterparts Felipe Calderón, from Mexico, and Juan Manuel Santos, from Colombia, outside of the UN General Assembly held last week in New York. “We are asking the UN Secretary General that the letter be dispersed and considered as an official document” among member countries within the organization, Pérez said. “There are three countries – Colombia, Guatemala, and Mexico – affected by drug trafficking, violence, and insecurity, some to a greater extent, others to a lesser extent, but all three countries are making efforts to make this call at a global level,” he outlined. Pérez expressed regret that “every day in Guatemala, we suffer the consequences of a problem remaining for over 50 years.” According to the head of state, out of the 6,000 deaths occurred every year in his country from violence, 42 percent are related to drug trafficking. In February, Pérez proposed to decriminalize drug trafficking, trade, and consumption, but he did not raise this issue to the UN last week. By Dialogo October 04, 2012last_img read more

The implications of Apple Card entering the fray this summer

first_imgThe Apple Card is a wake-up call for traditional financial institutions. Cardholders want a more interactive mobile banking experience that rewards them faster and they will switch to Apple if banks and credit unions don’t switch up their user experience.This Card Will Be Your Friend—Until You Become a Late Payer?Apple wants to be seen as the ultimate customer-centric brand, so it makes sense to promise its credit card will come with no hidden fees and interest rates among the lowest in the industry. But are these realistic expectations?Everyone hates hidden fees—If Apple delivers on this promise, it will score high points with its users. But some fees are not-so-hidden, and there is not much financial institutions can do about them. So, while card fees or international fees could easily be eliminated, late fees could remain an issue. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

I won’t intentionally help my patients to end their lives

first_imgThe Age 9 October 2017Family First Comment: A great article – from a medical professional (not an ACT MP!) who knows the truth “A request to die is uncommon, and is often driven by poorly controlled pain or nausea, as well as fear, loss of function and hopelessness. Usually when pain and other symptoms are under control, good nursing care is on hand, and psychological support has been provided, patients no longer want their death to be hastened. For family members watching a loved one die, the experience can be agonising. However, with appropriate involvement of palliative care, the preparation and education of family members about the normal processes of dying (such as irregular breathing and fluctuating consciousness), and with the administration of pain relief, there is minimal physical suffering.Most patients with incurable cancer battle to the end. They exhaust all evidence-based active treatment options and clinical trials before being told that supportive care measures are now best.A request to die is uncommon, and is often driven by poorly controlled pain or nausea, as well as fear, loss of function and hopelessness. Usually when pain and other symptoms are under control, good nursing care is on hand, and psychological support has been provided, patients no longer want their death to be hastened.For family members watching a loved one die, the experience can be agonising. However, with appropriate involvement of palliative care, the preparation and education of family members about the normal processes of dying (such as irregular breathing and fluctuating consciousness), and with the administration of pain relief, there is minimal physical suffering.When a patient seeks assisted dying, it is often when they are first told they have a limited life expectancy and before they are truly unwell. They are so distressed by such difficult news that they anticipate what is to come and can be consumed with fear and an urge to regain control. They may respond by seeking assisted dying at a time of their choosing. In overseas jurisdictions where this is legal around 80 per cent of those who access it have cancer.Under the assisted suicide model proposed for Victoria, no psychiatric assessment or specialist palliative care assessment of intending patients are required. There is no need to involve the patient’s treating doctors as two new doctors with no mandated end-of-life expertise assess and authorise lethal medicine without any follow-up care.Informing family members is optional. The entire process can be completed and drugs taken within 10 days – little time for change of mind about an irreversible act. Everyone is presumed to have decision-making capacity unless they obviously don’t. Determination of a patient’s life expectancy involves an educated guess by doctors and the confidence intervals can be wide.READ MORE: http://www.theage.com.au/comment/i-wont-intentionally-help-my-patients-to-end-their-lives-20171009-gywz7j.html?platform=hootsuitelast_img read more
