He says the airport has sent out notices through the NavCanada system, alerting pilots of the shortage.- Advertisement -[asset|aid=1572|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=d329dc3c93baf5119b20388cfdeecb9d-Todd Tripp 1_3_Pub.mp3]The shortage stems from various short-term maintenance shutdowns at aviation gas refineries in eastern Canada.  Also, fire fleets have been using a large supply of the gas due to the volume of forest fires in the area.Tripp says since the notices have been sent out on the wire, pilots are aware of the shortage.

Council blinks in face of mayor’s demand to use trash fees to hire LAPD officers

first_img LAPD Chief William Bratton said he also was encouraged by the action, which will allow him to continue an aggressive hiring program started under former Mayor James Hahn. “This is a city that has danced around this issue for 25 years and it is finally committed to getting this Police Department to the appropriate size,” Bratton said. Council President Eric Garcetti, who also was involved in negotiations to reach a deal, said the action includes assurances that all the money raised from a trash-fee hike that began last year will be used for police. In approving the fee hike, Villaraigosa had vowed that the new funds would be used solely to add new police officers to the force. “With this action, we are telling the voters that the money from the trash fee will be going to expanding the Police Department,” Garcetti said. “And if we continue as we have, we may have to find even more money. That’s the point where we will have to make difficult decisions on where we come up with the money.” The controversy over hiring developed as part of a quarterly report on the city’s financial situation that warned of a possible $75million shortfall in this year’s budget. As chairman of the Budget and Finance Committee, Parks – a former LAPD chief – suggested reducing the number of officers to be hired this year because the number of officers retiring or leaving appears to be lower than estimated. “We did not want to wait until the last few months of the year to find out we had a problem,” Parks said. “This is a large ship and it takes longer than two or three months to prepare for shortages. We need six months to deal with some of these issues.” He said that when a department the size of the LAPD overspends even by a small percentage, it has repercussions for other city services. “It’s important we realize the impact so we can look at how we are going to cover the increased costs,” Parks said. “Will it be sidewalks? Traffic signals? The repair of Griffith Park? We need time to make those decisions and set those priorities.” The LAPD is now estimated to be $16million over its budget, with $13million of that for overtime. Bratton said the overtime is used primarily for having officers remain on duty to solve crimes. “A lot of it is unforeseen, but we are not going to change our policies on the use of it,” Bratton said. “We think it’s one of the reasons crime is down as much as it is. “It is expensive, but we believe it is worth it for the city.” Personnel Director Margaret Whelan said it is important to continue the hiring program. “When we stop and start, it’s hard to keep relationships going and keep people interested,” Whelan said. “We have very strong relationships now at schools and colleges and military bases and don’t want to lose people to other jurisdictions.” As part of the recruiting effort, Villaraigosa accepted a $1million donation from the Mercury Insurance Co. on Friday to pay a hiring bonus being offered to new recruits. New recruits receive $2,500 upon graduation and $2,500 after they complete a probationary period. But the mayor still found flaws with the City Council’s approval of that program. “We were offered this money a year ago and it took the council a full year to approve it,” Villaraigosa said. “That’s ridiculous.” After the vote Friday, several council members said they would never have supported a reduction in LAPD hiring. “I do not want to put any handcuffs on Chief Bratton when he goes out to try to hire more officers and I also don’t want any shackles when they decide how to use those officers,” Councilman Jack Weiss said. Councilman Richard Alarc n said he was upset that some were characterizing the debate as city squabbling. “This is not the time to talk about reducing our police force,” Alarc n said. “The reduction in crime is one of our greatest accomplishments. “But we should stay away from negative messages that provide fodder to those who would tear the city apart.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Threatening to veto any move to limit police hiring, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa won a showdown with the City Council on Friday when it voted to move forward with expanding the force even as the city faces growing budget constraints. But while the council voted to let Los Angeles Police Department hiring continue, it also added a provision that it must be notified when hiring exceeds 226 new officers beyond the existing force. “What we are saying is we are pro-police, but we are also concerned with our budget,” said Councilwoman Wendy Greuel, who was key in negotiating the deal with the Mayor’s Office. The 11-0 vote comes as Villaraigosa and the council had been at odds over the issue for a week after Councilman Bernard Parks suggested that the LAPD reduce officer hiring amid slower attrition in the department.

But Villaraigosa had adamantly opposed any caps and said any cut to his goal of expanding the LAPD would “come over my dead body.” After Friday’s council vote, Villaraigosa sought to downplay his threats against the council. “All I will say is I’m glad we are working together to provide more police for the city,” Villaraigosa said. “Expanding the Police Department is a promise we made to the city and one I want to make sure we keep. “It is because of public safety that we see so much construction around town. Public safety is the reason tourism is up 500percent. People want to visit and live in a city that is safe.” last_img read more

DEIGNAN STARS IN GIRO D’ITALIA

first_imgDonegal’s Philip Deignan has got off to a great start in the Giro d’Italia as he helped his Radioshack team come in second in the opening team time trial in Turin.He is now in 11th place, 10 seconds behind the leader, Italy’s Marco Pinotti.The local rider ensured a perfect start to the Giro d’Italia on Saturday when he led HTC-Highroad to victory in the opening team time trial. Clad in his specially designed green, white and red team kit, the 35-year-old reigning Italian time trial champion was the first HTC-Highroad rider to speed across the finish line.In a year when Italy is celebrating the 150th anniversary of its unification, and with Italian tricolore flags lining large sections of the 19 kms route, Pinotti’s victory was enthusiastically received.The only Italian in HTC-Highroad’s 2011 Giro line-up, Pinotti admitted afterwards he had been a bundle of nerves in the final kilometres as victory beckoned.‘I was really worried, I knew we were going to set a great time and that the team had done a lot of work for me,’ Pinotti told reporters. ‘We’re used to doing well in these team time trials, we won the same event in the Giro 2009. But that added to the pressure and I just didn’t want to blow it at the last minute.’Pinotti said leading Italy’s premier bike race again as his country celebrated was ‘something very special.’‘Winning today was really important for me as an Italian as well as for the team,’ he said.A leader of the Giro in 2007 for four days, and ninth overall last year, Pinotti joked when asked how long he expected to hold the jersey this time.‘If possible, all the way to Milan,’ he said. ‘Seriously, I’ll take it day by day, but tomorrow in any case we’ll be working for (team sprinter) Mark Cavendish. We can do that and defend my lead at the same time.’ Second on the flat, fast course from Venaria Reale to Turin was Deignan’s RadioShack team, 10 seconds behind, with Italians Liquigas third at 22 seconds.Leading favourite Alberto Contador’s SaxoBank team put in a solid ride to finish eighth, 30 seconds off the pace.‘It’s a great result,’ Contador said. ‘We couldn’t take risks because this is even more dangerous than a prologue. In a team time trial the whole squad can crash at the same time.’‘My top rivals in the Lampre, Liquigas and Geox teams have also done well, but the differences between us all have been minimal.’ Sunday’s 244km stage, the longest in the race, could see HTC-Highroad take a second victory in as many days with British sprinter Cavendish one of the favourites for a widely-expected bunch sprint in the flat run from Alba to Parma.The Giro d’Italia finishes in Milan on 29 May.DEIGNAN STARS IN GIRO D’ITALIA was last modified: May 8th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

TEEN GANG BEHIND ATTACK IS ‘TERRORISING’ TOWN

first_imgA TEENAGE gang of thugs behind the armed robbery of two young men in Letterkenny are behind a ‘reign of terror’ in the town.Donegal Daily reported yesterday how the gang battered the two teenagers with batons and threatened them with machetes and swords.The gang robbed the young victims wallets and took their bank cards. One victim had a phone stolen which was believed to be worth €650. But the incident is just the latest in a series of incidents in Glencar.Gardaí have identified some of those involved in the robberies who have spread their terror among teenagers in schools in the town.A number of parents have told Donegal Daily that they believe many attacks have not even been reported, because of the scare tactics used by the gang to keep their victims silent.In the incident in Glencar the mother of one of the boys says they too have been warned not to speak to Gardaí. “Everyone knows exactly who these people are,” said one resident.“Our children can’t even go out of the house in case they are bullied, attacked or even worse.“It’s like a reign of terror. I’ve lived in Letterkenny all my life and these outsiders have taken over our town and turned parts of it into no-go zones for our children.”Several other parents made the same claims.“We’re not going to stand for this. The guards had better do their job and do it quickly,” said another resident. “We know you have to be careful these days but no teenager should have to worry about swords and machetes when they’re going out with their mates. It’s not on.”TEEN GANG BEHIND ATTACK IS ‘TERRORISING’ TOWN was last modified: November 27th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:crimeglencarletterkennyswordsteenage gangslast_img read more

Fitness Costs What?  Say That Again?

first_imgGood news: evolution has figured out how to make your wounds heal faster.  Bad news: the required mutation makes you go deaf.    Believe it or not, that is the story told on News@Nature.  “Deafness gene has health benefit,” wrote Alison Abbott.  “Protein from genetic mutation helps wounds to heal.”  The article treats this as a good thing, the way evolution works:A high frequency of mutation in any gene implies that there may be an evolutionary benefit for carriers.  “It is well known that various genetic mutations that cause sickness in particular geographical areas sometimes also protect against local diseases, so there is a trade-off,” says [David] Kelsell.The article compared this with another oft-cited “beneficial” mutation – another good-news, bad-news joke, that if you get the mutation for sickle-cell anemia, you become more resistant to malaria.  Pick your poison.    Kelsell says ”it’s speculation, but maybe the Cx26 deafness mutations have been selected owing to their beneficial effects on wounds.”  But then, how could the deaf winners tell each other the good news?Darwinists, come back when you can figure out how to get the benefits without the trade-offs.  Your price is too high.  We’ll take the slower healing and keep the ears.(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
