New State Funding Helps Return Two Former Industrial Sites to Productive Use

first_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter January 31, 2020 Government That Works,  Press Release Governor Tom Wolf announced the approval of new funding to clean up former industrial sites in Blair and Erie counties to prepare them for occupation by businesses and residential properties.“The benefits are two-fold – not only will harmful chemicals be removed from these properties, but the elimination of blight will attract aspiring renters, homeowners, and business owners for many years to come,” said Gov. Wolf.Funded through the commonwealth’s Industrial Sites Reuse Program (ISRP), the two approved projects are as follows:Altoona-Blair County Development Corporation was approved for a $10,200 grant for an environmental assessment of the former Silk Mill Industrial Complex located in Blair County. In 2018, ISRP funds were used for environmental remediation costs. This funding will be used for an assessment to include soil borings, soil sampling, installation of monitoring wells, hazardous material survey, aquifer slug testing, sub-slab vapor sampling, indoor air and ambient air sampling and the development of a remediation plan. Once the site has been remediated, it will allow for development of approximately 100,000-170,000 square feet to support the construction of 42 residential apartments and 19,000 square feet of office/rental space. The project will also complement the redevelopment of the former Bon Secours Hospital Complex that is currently underway.Albion Borough, Erie County was approved for a $63,810 grant for site characterization of an old gas station. ISRP funds will be used for a geophysical and professional survey, soil borings and monitoring wells, well development, groundwater and soil gas sampling, aquifer testing, fate and transport analysis, human health risk assessment, remedial investigation reports, and the development of a cleanup plan. The borough has a prospective buyer who plans to use the property for warehousing and minor parts assembly.“This new funding will bring new opportunities to Blair and Erie counties and will ensure that these sites become safe and valuable properties that improve their communities and bring new appeal to formerly underutilized or unused areas,” said Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development Secretary Dennis Davin.ISRP provides loans and grants for environmental assessments and remediation. The program is designed to foster the cleanup of environmental contamination at industrial sites, thereby bringing blighted land into productive reuse.“Revitalizing former industrial sites provides tremendous benefits for communities, but important testing and remediation must take place to ensure that the sites are environmentally safe,” said Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Patrick McDonnell. “These funds will allow for this important work to take place so that the sites are ready for redevelopment.”For more information about the Industrial Sites Reuse Program or the DCED, visit the DCED website, and be sure to stay up-to-date with all of our agency news on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.center_img New State Funding Helps Return Two Former Industrial Sites to Productive Uselast_img read more

Churches to get tougher at AGMs over pay, climate change, gender

first_imgThe Church Investors Group (CIG), representing church organisations with combined assets of around £17bn (€19bn), has told FTSE 350 companies that it will take a harder line at annual general meetings where it considers change in three key areas to be too slow.   It will also encourage other shareholders to refuse to re-elect directors where a company is out of line with best practice.In terms of executive pay, the CIG – which includes the main investing bodies of the Church of England and the Methodist Church – will consider fairness in the workplace, and withhold support for remuneration reports where chief executive pensions are deemed excessive.It will also withdraw support against a remuneration report where pay ratios are not disclosed, or where financial services or pharmaceutical companies do not pay the living wage. In promoting gender diversity, CIG members will now vote against the re-election of nomination committee chairs where fewer than 33% of board directors are women, and it will vote against all directors on the nomination committee if woman make up less than 25% of the board.The third key area is climate change. CIG members will now vote against the re-election of the company chair when a company is considered to be making little progress on transitioning to a low carbon world.Companies will be measured against their scores from the Transition Pathway Initiative, a tool designed to help asset owners better understand and address their exposure to risks and opportunities stemming from climate change.Carlota Garcia-Manas, deputy head of engagement for the Church Commissioners and Church of England Pensions Board, said: “We continue to see climate change as a key issue and encourage other investors to partner with us in ensuring we hold companies accountable to the highest standards and adapting their activities to fit with the Paris Agreement.”The full CIG voting policy is here.Meanwhile, Wellcome Trust – the UK’s largest charity, with assets of £23.2bn at the end of September 2017 – has revealed an above average gender pay gap.The gender gap in its median pay was 20.8% as at April last year. The UK gender gap average is 18%.Wellcome said the gap existed mainly because of the disproportionate balance of men and women at different levels within the organisation. Overall, around 64% of its employees are women, but most of the highest-paid senior roles are held by men.The charity said: “This year we will introduce fairer ways to support the recruitment, progression and retention of women at senior leadership levels. We will improve our diversity data so that we understand better where to target new initiatives, and provide staff training to mitigate bias.”All UK employers with more than 250 staff are required to publish gender pay gap data on the government website by April 2018.last_img read more

New Initiatives Unveiled to Strengthen Singapore as a Global Maritime Hub

first_imgSingapore has announced two new initiatives intended to strengthen the region’s standing as a global maritime hub. The initiatives are aimed at enhancing Singapore’s maritime insurance offering with the Singapore War Risks Insurance Conditions (SWRIC) and developing an interoperability framework for electronic trade documents for the maritime and trade industries.They were presented by Lam Pin Min, Senior Minister of State for Transport and Health, at the Singapore Shipping Association’s (SSA) Annual Lunar New Year Cocktail Reception held on January 22, 2019.Dr Lam Pin Min, Senior Minister of State for Transport and Health, unveiled two initiatives to strengthen Singapore’s standing as a leading global maritime hub at the Singapore Shipping Association’s Annual Lunar Cocktail Reception this evening.#MPA #maritimesg @ssa_office pic.twitter.com/2R3mr7WOa2— MPA Singapore (@MPA_Singapore) January 22, 2019As explained, the new SWRIC is an enhancement to the Singapore War Risks Mutual (SWRM), Singapore’s first national war risks insurance facility which was launched in 2015 as part of efforts to develop Singapore as a comprehensive marine insurance hub.Available to members of SSA irrespective of the flag of the ship, and non-members whose ships are registered in Singapore, the cover under SWRM rules includes Protection and Indemnity (P&I) war risks, hull war risks, detention and diversion expenses, sue and labor and discretionary insurance. In a short span of four years since its launch, the SWRM cover has exceeded expectations with close to 800 ships insured.SSA spearheaded a workgroup which prepared the SWRIC, a comprehensive set of insurance conditions which aims to raise the bar on existing war conditions in the marketplace today, by bridging coverage gaps as well as updating and simplifying the existing war conditions available in the market.The SWRIC are also the first insurance conditions to be written from a shipowner’s perspective, addressing important risks that are felt by the global shipping community, according to the association.Moreover, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) is galvanizing the shipping community and other government agencies to develop inter-operability enablers to further digitalization efforts in the maritime sector and bring about benefits to the wider supply chain ecosystem.This is a step-up to the three-party memorandum of understanding (MOU) that MPA, SSA and Singapore Customs signed at the Sea Transport Industry Transformation Map launched in January 2018 to jointly look into the digitalization of trade and maritime documentation, such as Bills of Lading (BL), in the industry.Since the signing of the MOU in January 2018, the industry has seen progress with successful e-BL trials amongst consortiums led by two shipping lines – one by APL and the other by PIL and IBM. The trials simplify existing processes as well as leverage blockchain technology to bring various trading parties together to support information sharing and transparency, SSA said.To facilitate interoperability of the solutions developed by the various consortiums, the members are to include a new MOU partner, Info-communications Media Development Authority (IMDA), to develop a new interoperability framework.Working together with IMDA, the industry can expect to see different digital ecosystems interoperate with an efficient exchange of electronic trade documents. The work will entail the development of a set of governance and legal frameworks, technical standards and interoperable digital enablers.“The close partnership between the Government, the industry and SSA is a unique competitive advantage for Singapore. We must continue to strengthen this partnership. This will enable Maritime Singapore to stay relevant and competitive,” SMS Lam commented.last_img read more

Costa ruled out for Spain

first_imgDiego Costa has been ruled out of Spain’s upcoming matches against Ukraine and Holland with a hamstring injury. “The striker has suffered a level 1 hamstring tear on the biceps femoris of the left thigh, which was previously already noted by the medical services of his club.” The statement continued: “Diego Costa will return to Chelsea FC where he will undergo the corresponding medical treatment.” The 26-year-old scored his 20th goal of the season with a wonderful curling effort to put the Blues 2-0 up on Sunday, but he hobbled off before Loic Remy came off the bench to secure the win for Jose Mourinho’s side. The Chelsea boss said afterwards that extra care has to be taken with his star striker when it comes to his hamstring. “When a striker is playing, the team needs a goal to win the game and with 15 minutes to go the striker, a guy with a lot of experience of hamstring injuries, says ‘it is over for me’, then it is over for him,” Mourinho said. “He has this problem. He tried to play the Champions League final for Atletico (Madrid, last season) and was injured again and again and again. He has this fragility. “We know his hamstring is not a strong one. He works hard through the week to compensate the weakness he has there but the injury can come.” Vincente del Bosque’s side face Ukraine on Friday in European Championship qualifying group C, where they currently sit second three points behind leaders Slovakia before taking on Holland in a friendly next Tuesday. The Chelsea striker was substituted with 15 minutes remaining during Sunday’s 3-2 win at Hull and Spain on Tuesday announced that he would return to the Premier League club for treatment during the international break. A statement on Spain’s official website read: “Diego Costa, left the premises of the Spanish Football Federation this morning after undergoing several tests with the medical services of the RFEF. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Beat writers predict Syracuse to outlast Clemson in the Carrier Dome

first_imgSyracuse (10-4, 1-0 Atlantic Coast) continues conference play on Wednesday in the Carrier Dome against Clemson (10-4, 0-1). The Orange closed out the nonconference portion of the schedule with wins over Arkansas State and St. Bonaventure before topping Notre Dame in South Bend on Jan. 5. The Tigers started their conference slate falling to No. 1 Duke, while SU looks to build momentum in winnable games. Here’s what our beat writers think will happen Wednesday night. Billy Heyen (12-2)Too much orangeSyracuse 72, Clemson 67The one concern for Syracuse should be that the two Clemson players who scored in double figures last year in the Dome, Marcquise Reed and Elijah Thomas, are both back to try to do it again. But the Orange showed at Notre Dame that they can overcome two effective opposing players with defensive adjustments and their own shot-making. Expect that to continue against an aggressive Tigers’ man-to-man defense to send the Orange crowd home happy on Wednesday night.Charlie DiSturco (11-3)Paper TigerSyracuse 68, Clemson 62AdvertisementThis is placeholder textA strong performance on the road against Notre Dame showed just how good this Syracuse offense can be. The Orange have an opportunity to keep the ball rolling against Clemson on Wednesday, part of a two-game home stretch before traveling to Duke. Clemson is one of the worst teams at guarding the 3 ball, allowing opponents to shoot 37.6 percent from deep, or 308th in the country, per Kenpom.com. Clemson also doesn’t have a win against a team inside Kenpom’s top-60 teams. Expect Elijah Hughes and the rest of the Syracuse offense to keep the momentum going while the Tigers drop its second-straight game to open ACC play.Matthew Gutierrez (10-4)Two football schools!Syracuse 70, Clemson 64I think we’re on the cusp of a Syracuse breakthrough, one where they become at least remotely as potent as we expected they’d be this season. Beating Clemson on Wednesday and Georgia Tech on Saturday is a must if SU is going to make the NCAA Tournament. A win over the Tigers should put the Orange on track to begin ACC play 5-1 — the one loss being at No. 1 Duke — and in strong position to gain momentum for the final two-thirds of league play. Syracuse gets it done on the hardwood against another football school. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 7, 2019 at 10:12 pmlast_img read more

Kim Collins calls it a wrap

first_imgSt. Kitts and Nevis track and field stalwart, Kim Collins, has announced his retirement from the sport. Collins, 41, ended his run by pulling out of the 60-metre semi-finals at the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Birmingham, England. The former World 100-metre champion, had, in the morning, finished third in his heat, clocking 6.77 seconds behind eventual World Indoor Champion, the United States’ Christian Coleman, 6.71, and Sweden’s Odain Rose, 6.75. Though the time allowed him into the semis as an automatic qualifier, Collins was a no-show in heat two, where he would have challenged Coleman, 6.45, again. Collins ended his career having notched a gold and four bronze medals at the World Championships, two World Indoor silver medals but may have rued missing an Olympic accolade to go with his long list of achievements.last_img read more

NFL beer vendor arrested for charging $724 for two beers at Dolphins game

first_imgThe vendor was employed by Rocket Man, a Kentucky-based subcontractor that places vendors in stadiums. They are easily recognized by their lime green shirts. Rocket Man issued a statement regarding the incident:”As the chosen provider of walking vendors across dozens of stadiums, we take the matter of security extremely seriously, and train and monitor our vendors to safeguard our customers. Our onsite supervisor contacted the authorities immediately upon learning of the overcharge on what was Mr. Collier’s unauthorized personal device. The credit card company issued a full refund and the guest incurred no loss. The suspect’s employment has been terminated. As this is an open legal action, we cannot offer further comment.”To make matters worse, the Chargers beat the Dolphins 30-10 to bring Miami to 0-4 on the season. WEEK 5 PICKS: Straight up | Against the spreadMiami-Dade police said Collier used a Square card reader to scam the unsuspecting fan and faces charges of grand theft and using a skimming device. Luckily, the Dolphins fan received a notification from his bank, alerting him of the outrageous ;charge to his credit card, which included the vendor’s name. Attending NFL games can be expensive; from the tickets, food and drinks, fans should expect to drop a pretty penny to take in a game.But one vendor at Hard Rock Stadium for Sunday’s Chargers-Dolphins game took it to an extreme by charging a criminal amount for beer — literally. According to the Miami Herald, 33-year-old Nathaniel Collier was arrested for charging one fan $724 for two beers. While there isn’t a set beer price at the stadium, they typically range from $5-$15 at Dolphins home games.last_img read more
