News story: Plastic purge: Defra Legal Advisers

first_imgAs the government announces a deposit scheme to encourage people to recycle plastic bottles and cans, GLD lawyers have been doing their bit to help stem the mounting volume of plastic waste that is posing a threat to much of the world’s wildlife.Brought into focus by the recent series Blue Planet II in which David Attenborough highlighted the toxic effect of plastic waste on the world’s oceans, government lawyers from Defra Legal Advisers have joined a global effort to curb pollution.Gilly Stratford of GLD was part of the UK delegation that joined the third United Nations Environmental Assembly which took place recently in Nairobi, otherwise known as UNEA-3.UNEA-3’s aim was to work towards ridding the planet of pollution, including the menace of marine plastic litter. At the end of long and intense negotiations, 15 anti-pollution measures were unanimously agreed by the 190+ countries which attended. Gilly’s role was to advise policy colleagues and help draft amendments to the texts, while keeping an eye on the UK’s negotiating position.While these measures are not legally binding, they nonetheless send out a statement of intent. Defra achieved all its objectives at UNEA-3, especially its main aim to reduce marine pollution by plastics and microplastics.last_img read more

University chooses not to sign NCAA diversity in hiring pledge

first_imgNotre Dame is one of two Division I Universities who has not signed the NCAA’s “Presidential Pledge” on diversity in hiring, The Washington Post reported Monday. Boston College is the other school yet to sign.The pledge’s stated goal is, “establishing initiatives for achieving ethnic and racial diversity, gender equity and inclusion, with a focus and emphasis on hiring practices in intercollegiate athletics, to reflect the diversity of our membership and our nation.”University spokesperson Paul Browne said in an email statement to The Washington Post that the University already practiced diverse hiring, and adopting the pledge was therefore not necessary.“[University President Fr. John Jenkins] feels strongly that principals of such importance should be authored and pronounced by Notre Dame itself and applied University-wide, and not as the product of an association focused exclusively on collegiate athletics,” Browne said in the statement.Browne said diversity at Notre Dame is not currently where the administration would like.“The diversity of our current administrative team is not where we want it to be, and that’s being addressed soon,” Browne said in the statement. “ … Notre Dame is proud of helping advance the careers of some prominent African-American athletics administrators who are now serving at other universities.”Tags: Diversity, Hiring, NCAA, Pledgelast_img read more

Study finds plenty of brownfield sites in Nevada to host green energy

first_imgStudy finds plenty of brownfield sites in Nevada to host green energy FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Las Vegas Review-Journal:Nevada could meet the new clean energy benchmark approved by voters Tuesday without tearing up any undisturbed land, according to an analysis by The Nature Conservancy and the Rocky Mountain Institute.The Silver State is home to more than enough old mines and other former industrial sites to accommodate the new solar, wind and geothermal plants that will be needed if Nevada electricity providers are eventually required to get at least 50 percent of their power from renewable sources, the analysis shows.The Colorado-based Rocky Mountain Institute used existing U.S. Environmental Protection Agency data on potentially contaminated brownfield sites in Nevada to identify more than 2.8 million acres of already disturbed land that appears ripe for renewable energy development. That land has the potential to produce enough geothermal energy to meet about one-third of the new green energy standard, enough wind energy to meet the standard two times over and enough solar energy to meet the standard 20 times over, analysts said.And because those brownfield sites — a term used for any previously developed land that is not currently in use — were already used for industrial purposes, many of them already have access to roads and transmission lines.“We should do everything we can to take advantage of this great overlooked land resource that Nevada has to support clean energy goals,” said John Zablocki, Southern Nevada conservation director for The Nature Conservancy. “Achieving that requires focused policy work to break down barriers.”More: Nevada’s mines could hold key to Question 6 energy standardlast_img read more

Irish pension fund deficits soar to €6.8bn

first_imgConor Daly, partner at LCP, said: “These rises bring challenges, both for the companies themselves and the members … many companies have committed to funding proposals that have been approved by the Pensions Authority.“Market conditions could result in those going off track by year-end 2016 and may require re-negotiation with pension scheme trustees and approval by the Pensions Authority for 2017.”In July, less than a month after the UK voted to leave the European Union, the Bank of Ireland pension fund reported a €460m increase in its deficit.The sudden spike in shortfalls – which for some pensions reached record highs – could hurt dividend payouts and force financial services companies to hold higher regulatory capital, Daly added.Pension funds that avoided wind-up during the 2008 financial crisis might soon come under renewed pressure as the cost of sponsor contributions mounts.In addition, members will “undoubtedly have to take some of the pain”, Daly said, including potential benefit cuts or scheme closures.In its report, LCP said the volatile nature of Irish deficits showed that many companies had yet to implement effective de-risking programmes.LCP analysed the balance sheets of 26 Irish public and state-owned companies with “significant” DB assets to determine the impact of contributions and deficits on sponsor covenant.The consultant found that, last year – a period in which deficits substantially reduced – sponsors contributed on average more than double the amount necessary to cover benefit accruals in an effort to plug shortfalls.Two companies, C&C Group and DCC, contributed more than 10 times benefit accrual.The 26 firms contributed an aggregate €1.16bn to their pensions during 2015.At the end of 2015, only one sponsor – building materials company Kingspan Group – had a surplus in its pension fund.Across the channel in the UK, research by Hymans Robertson indicated that market movements in the wake of the US presidential election helped reduce the UK’s aggregate DB deficit.The consultant estimated a reduction of £35bn (€40.7bn) to bring the shortfall to £825bn as of November 15.Calum Cooper, partner at Hymans Robertson, said: “If the experience of the past year, and particularly the past six months, teaches us anything, it’s that deficits can be extremely volatile.“But these huge gyrations in headline funding figures should not knock schemes off course. A long-term focus needs to be maintained through short-term political fog and uncertainty.” Irish pension schemes’ funding plans may come unravelled in the coming months due to spiralling deficits, consultant LCP has warned.The combined shortfall of Irish defined benefit (DB) pensions ballooned in the first nine months of 2016 to €6.8bn, according to LCP estimates.Falling corporate bond yields, quantitative easing in Europe and the impact of Brexit caused Ireland’s aggregate shortfall to more than double since the end of 2015.Equity gains this year and a bond market rally following the US election earlier this month softened the blow but only marginally.last_img read more

Ronaldo’s best goal scoring strategy revealed by ex-teammate

first_imgIn an interview with The Athletic, Kroos divulged Ronaldo’s preference is to create his move from the left so that he can cut inside on his formidable right foot.“His (Ronaldo) favorite position was on the left,” Kroos revealed.“He sometimes played through the middle or next to another striker, but he loved starting from the left and cutting inside best. It came with the freedom of not having to track back all the time. Almost without fail, he justified having that freedom,” Kroos added.According to the Real Madrid star, Ronaldo learned to master playing from the said position and has made himself almost invincible. Even though there were times that Kroos and their other teammates had to do more running to back Ronaldo’s play, it was all worth it as the legendary forward often paid their sweat off with goals.“But we also knew that it was worth working that little bit more for him, because he would score two at the other end. He was free in his movement and always paid us back with goals.During his stint at Real Madrid, Ronaldo scored a total of 450 goals from 348 appearances. He also led the club to four Champions League titles making him a Real Madrid hero even to this day.Read Also: Ronaldo: Giggs reveals one Man United teammate better than Juve starNow that Ronaldo is already in his mid 30’s, many are still at awe with the way he seemingly returned to his Real Madrid days.

Charlton: LVG taken aback by United

first_imgSir Bobby Charlton thinks Louis van Gaal was “surprised by the enormity” of Manchester United when he took over as manager last summer. But the United director insists the Dutchman will be a success at the club. United are on course for Champions League qualification after a run of two defeats in 16 Barclays Premier League games, but they have come in for criticism this season for their style of play. Van Gaal also struggled to get his side playing well at the start of the campaign and Charlton reckons the 63-year-old – despite having managed Barcelona, Ajax and Bayern Munich – may have been somewhat overawed by the stature of United when he took charge last July. “It’s been just the way I thought it would be this season,” United’s all-time top scorer wrote in his programme column prior to Saturday’s home game against Sunderland. “A new manager comes in and has lots of things on his mind, a lot to think about at once, and Louis van Gaal was perhaps a little surprised by the enormity of the club.” Van Gaal enjoyed success at those three European giants – and with the Hollandh national side – so Charlton is optimistic about the club’s future under the Dutchman, who is contracted until the summer of 2017. “I am not worried about the season or the future,” said Charlton, who scored 249 in 758 appearances for the club. “I think we can look forward to some fantastic times here. “There has been misfortune along the way – look at the injuries we’ve had, or the deflected goal at Swansea last weekend – but sometimes you get that.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Roma loan for Salah

first_img Press Association Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah has joined Roma on a season-long loan, the Barclays Premier League side have announced. Salah, who left Basle to join the Blues in January last year, became the first Egyptian to turn out for the Stamford Bridge outfit but has found regular football hard to come by. He scored twice in 19 appearances for the reigning champions but had more joy out on loan at Fiorentina in the second half of last season, scoring nine times in 26 games. center_img Salah will now return to Serie A and Roma have the option to make the switch permanent. “Chelsea Football Club has agreed terms with AS Roma for the season-long loan of Mohamed Salah,” Chelsea said in a statement. “The winger will spend the 2015-16 campaign on loan at the Stadio Olimpico and the agreement includes an option to purchase at any point during the season.” Roma expressed their delight on their website, saying the 23-year-old is widely regarded as “the best Egyptian player in the world right now”. Salah, meanwhile, already seems to be comfortable in the Eternal City and thinks his new side can wrestle the Scudetto out of Juventus’ grasp. “I think everybody here has ambition and everybody wants to win the title. That would be good for us and very good for the fans. Everybody will do their best to make the fans happy,” he said on Roma’s website. last_img read more
