MANILA, Philippines – The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) has ordered public service bus (PUB) operators to strictly comply with the government’s requirement to submit an approved safety plan for their units.

The transport regulator chastised the bus companies for what it said was their lack of commitment and proper implementation of the policy requiring them to submit a safety plan approved by the Transport Safety Board of the Department of Transportation (DOTr-OTS).

“All PUB operators, whether operating on urban, intra-regional or inter-regional routes, are required to comply with and submit the approved OTS security plan,” the LTFRB said in a circular dated May 17.

The LTFRB previously ordered bus companies to submit their safety plan for renewal and franchise application in response to bombings and other violent crimes targeting buses.

The security plan should contain 12 key points to address critical elements of security, including security organization and security responsibilities, security measures and procedures, record keeping, staff training , safety drills, safety equipment and emergency plan.

The LTFRB has warned that bus operators are presumed to have violated the circular and the terms of their certificates of public utility (CPC) in the event of a bombing, crime or any breach of security.

“Appropriate sanctions may be imposed, such as, but not limited to, suspension or termination of their CPC, as determined by the Board,” the LTFRB said.

Governor Roy Cooper speaks May 11 at a press conference announcing his 2022-23 budget.

Clean energy, hog farm buyouts, forest preservation and management, and the expansion of climate resilience programs are among the key environmental features of Governor Roy Cooper’s proposed 2022-23 budget.

Cooper’s $29.3 billion plan released last week allocates more than $140 million for clean energy and environmental initiatives, including: $92 million for natural and working lands; $22 million for clean transportation projects; $15 million for environmental justice issues; $11 million for expanding clean energy access and adoption; and $1.9 million in energy efficiency upgrades.

Port infrastructure

Cooper’s budget provides a one-time $20 million reserve for infrastructure at the North Carolina State Ports Authority’s Radio Island property in Morehead City. Funding would be administered by the Port Authority and the Departments of Commerce and Transport for “investments that best attract tenant businesses to the island”.

The Southeastern Wind Coalition applauded the move and, citing a recent offshore wind supply chain study commissioned by the Commerce Department, said the improvements would help position North Carolina as a national industry leader. offshore wind turbine, as Radio Island is well suited to support staging. and the manufacture of offshore turbine components.

“This port positions North Carolina to serve the offshore wind industry along the coast, creating jobs and economic growth for years to come,” Coalition President Katharine Kollins said in a statement Tuesday. communicated.

100-year floodplain conservation easements

A program designed to reduce the risk to water quality from potential pollution from hog farms in the 100-year-old floodplain would receive $18 million under the governor’s proposed plan.

This funding would be directed to the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, or DACS, to purchase permanent conservation easements on hog farms in the 100-year floodplain.

If approved, the funding could potentially pay for more than 18 to 20 easements, said David Williams, deputy director of the state’s Division of Soil and Water Conservation.

“It’s very important,” he said. “That’s about $1 million per farm.”

The buyout costs cover the certification of the animal operation owner to operate a feedlot, the removal of the contents of the hog lagoons and the subsequent closure of those lagoons.

The volunteer-only Swine Floodplain Redemption was established in November 1999 following Hurricanes Floyd, Dennis and Irene, which caused catastrophic flooding that breached hog lagoons and drowned hundreds of livestock.

To date, 43 farms have been selected to participate in the program. Most of those happened in the early to mid-2000s, Williams said.

They include more than 1,200 acres of conservation easements and the closure of more than 100 animal waste lagoons in the floodplain.

Applicants are selected for the program based on a variety of criteria, including elevation of lagoon levees and production houses relative to floodplain elevation, history of flooding on the property, and distance to a waterway classified as a source of water or high quality waters.

Farmers can use their land once it is part of a conservation easement for low-density agriculture, such as growing row crops or for pasture-based beef production.

Easements cannot be used as spray fields for hog waste or non-agricultural development and require a soil and water conservation plan.

Williams said it was difficult to say exactly how many pig farms are still operating in the 100-year-old floodplain, “but I would say there are probably around 40 or 50.”

Most of them are in the southeastern part of the state.

Water quality, forests and resilience

The budget would provide $6.8 million in recurring funds and a one-time payment of $20 million to the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, or DNCR, to cover grants from the North Carolina Land and Water Fund for the protection and restoration of state lands. and water resources.

The grants would fund the restoration of degraded waterways, the development and improvement of stormwater treatment, and the preservation of military buffers.

An additional $10 million in one-time funding is being earmarked for the purchase and restoration of bogs and pocosins to reduce wildfire risk, reduce carbon emissions, build flood resilience, and reduce improve water quality.

Potential acquisition sites will be determined based on the results of the DNCR’s Natural Heritage Program, which will inventory the wetlands of the coastal plains.

The state’s Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services would receive a one-time $2 million to help North Carolina landowners through cost-sharing ways to improve forest management on private lands .

The governor’s plan would bolster the state’s climate resilience efforts, providing $10 million to expand the Resilient Communities Grant Program and provide grants aimed at helping local governments reduce flood risk and promote the long-term resilience.

A total of $762,825 in recurring funds would also go to program and resilience staff.

other supplies

Other budget recommendations include $3.7 million recurring and $20 million one-time for the Parks and Recreation Trust Fund for state park projects, local park development and renovation, and access to the beach.

Also included is $720,526 in recurring funds and $122,500 in one-time funds for the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality to create a coastal habitat assessment program to map, assess the vegetation and observe wetland changes in coastal habitats.

Cooper’s plan also includes a 5% pay raise for teachers and state employees, $50 million in assistance for new owners, including public school teachers, medical services staff in emergency, career firefighters and law enforcement, and adding 600,000 uninsured North Carolinians eligible for Medicaid.

Detroit – A local activist took his own “dream cruise” through the streets of Detroit that ended with a two-day classic car show in what was once one of the city’s most devastated neighborhoods.

The “Classic Car Cavalcade,” a parade of vehicles built between 1907 and 1992, meandered through Detroit neighborhoods including Grandmont, Rosedale and North Rosedale Park on Saturday.

The procession, which is not affiliated with the annual Woodward Dream Cruise, ended at Etheldra Mae Williams Park at Burgess and Acacia Streets in Detroit’s Brightmoor neighborhood.

After the parade, the third annual “Friends With Classics” car show was held. The show, which is free, was scheduled to run until 7 p.m. Sunday.

“It’s wonderful to see this parade of classic cars going through all these regal and stately old quarters,” said Michael Williams, the Brightmoor resident who organized the event.

The car show and parade are among Williams’ many efforts to transform a once devastated area into a scenic park named after his late mother.

Detroit's Clarence Simmons admires the cars on display at the Classic Car Meet at Etheldra Mae Williams Park in Detroit's Brightmoor neighborhood.

In 2014, Williams purchased several plots of land in Brightmoor and began clearing the dense foliage and razing burnt-out homes. Before the renovation, the area had abandoned houses with trees growing through the roofs, and a 26-foot boat had been dumped in the middle of the street.

In addition to his passion for improving his neighborhood, Williams is a classic car enthusiast.

“I have a 1926 Model T truck, which belonged to Faygo Beverage Co.” he said. “I also have a 1990 fire truck, which I got from Grosse Pointe.”

Williams also owns a 1951 IHS tractor that he hopes to use to teach vehicle renovation to children.

Mike Williams hangs out inside his 1926 Model TT during the meet

“We want six students to disassemble, repaint and reassemble the vehicle, to give them the skills to customize the automobile and other modes of transportation,” Williams said.

Williams said this year’s show features a “classic car coral,” which anyone selling a vehicle built in 1992 or earlier can exhibit at the event.

“There will be a designated area where they can display their vehicles,” he said. “It’s free too.”

As city traffic becomes increasingly difficult, entrepreneurs are eyeing a future in which commuters hop on “air taxis” that take them over congested roads.

Companies like Archer, Joby and Wisk are working on electric-powered planes that take off and land vertically like helicopters and then propel themselves forward like airplanes.

“‘The Jetsons’ is definitely a reference that people do a lot when trying to contextualize what we do,” Archer vice-president Louise Bristow told AFP, referring to an animated comedy from the 1960s about a family living in a high-tech future.

“The easiest way to think about it is a flying car, but that’s not what we’re doing.”

What Archer envisions is an era of aerial ridesharing, an “Uber or Lyft from the sky,” Bristow said.

The rooftops of neighborhood parking garages or the grounds of shopping malls could serve as a departure or arrival area for electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft.

Commuters would make the rest of the way as they wished, even syncing rides with ride-sharing services such as Uber, which owns a stake in Santa Cruz, Calif.-based Joby.

Joby executives said on a recent earnings call that its first production aircraft model should be in the skies later this year.

This comes despite the crash of a Joby prototype earlier this year while being tested at speeds and altitudes well above what it should handle as part of an air taxi fleet.

Joby declined to discuss details of the remotely piloted plane crash, which happened in an uninhabited area, saying he is waiting for US aviation regulators to complete an investigation.

“We were at the end of the campaign to expand flight testing to test points well above what we expect to see in normal operations,” Joby executive chairman Paul Sciarra told reporters. analysts.

“I’m really excited to know where we are now; we demonstrated the full performance of our aircraft.

Its eVTOL aircraft have a maximum range of 150 miles (241 kilometers), a top speed of 200 miles per hour and a “low-noise profile” to avoid annoying noise, the company said.

Joby announced partnerships with SK Telecom and mobility platform TMAP in South Korea to provide emission-free air ridesharing.

“By cooperating with Joby, TMAP will become a platform operator capable of providing seamless transportation service between the ground and the sky,” TMAP general manager Lee Jong Ho said in a statement.

Joby also announced a partnership with Japanese airline ANA to launch an air taxi service in Japan.

And Toyota has also joined the alliance, with the aim of exploring adding ground transportation to such a service there, Joby said.

Obstacles in the way include building infrastructure and adapting attitudes to make air taxis part of everyday life.

“For mass adoption, people need to change their mindset,” Bristow said.

“Getting people to want to travel in a different way will take thought.”

The need for change, however, is clear, she explained.

The roads are congested with traffic that wastes time, irritates the nerves and pollutes.

“There’s nowhere for the traffic to go,” Bristow said.

“You have to go up.”

Miami and Los Angeles are already exploring the potential of air ride sharing, and Archer hopes to have a small air taxi service operating in at least one of those cities by the end of 2024.

“It’s a monumental task that we’re undertaking,” Bristow said.

“It’s going to be a while before the infrastructure supports the massive expansion of what we’re trying to do.”

Archer announced last month that it had partnered with United Airlines to create an eVTOL advisory board.

The US airline has pre-ordered 200 Archer planes with the aim of using them for “last mile” transportation from airports, Bristow told AFP.

“Imagine flying from London to Newark, New Jersey, then getting in an Archer and being dropped off somewhere in Manhattan,” Bristow said.

Silicon Valley start-up Xwing specializes in making standard aircraft that can fly safely without pilots, with the aim of turning air travel into a cheaper and more efficient means of transportation.

“We strongly believe that the industry is going through a fairly dramatic transformation,” Marc Piette, CEO and founder of Xwing, told AFP.

“In a few years you’ll start to see networks of electric plane taxis regionally or on long hauls and it’s going to be quite a different landscape.”

Thousands of regional airports used primarily for leisure could become part of air transport networks, air mobility consultant Scott Drennan told AFP.

For Drennan, the main reason for flying is to “give people back time”.

MONTAGUE — The selection committee has approved city planner Walter Ramsey’s proposal to apply for $80,000 through the Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) Action Grant program to “integrate climate resilience into the overall plan of Montague”.

Montague is in the process of rewriting its 1999 comprehensive plan, which includes chapters dealing with areas such as climate resilience, housing, community facilities and services, transportation, economic development and land use. The revised plan “will emphasize planning for climate resilience so the city can be prepared to address the vulnerabilities identified” in the 2018 MVP plan, according to a letter that selection committee chairman Rich Kuklewicz wrote. to the Secretary of State for Energy and Environmental Affairs, Kathleen Theoharides. . Primarily, Ramsey said, the grant would be used to hire a consultant to write the overall plan.

In his speech to the Selectboard, Ramsey stressed the importance of focusing on climate resilience. The narrative of the grant application project highlights Montague’s climate-related challenges, including “flooding, extreme temperatures, wildfires, invasive species, and climate migration.” The story also recapped that Montague’s MVP plan found “the most threatening hazards” include infrastructure and transportation issues, vacant industrial land, erosion, fire hazards, and floodplains.

“The angle I propose for the MVP program … is to infuse climate change preparedness throughout the plan and to do so robustly in every chapter,” Ramsey said.

If awarded a grant, the consultant hired would likely be from the Franklin Regional Council of Governments, Ramsey said. The consultant would be paid $85 per hour to complete the planning and development of six chapters, as well as lead community engagement and project coordination. Ramsey said the work would include drafting the plan, working with citizen advisers and returning to the planning council in anticipation of the plan’s adoption at the town hall.

Ramsey stressed the importance of public participation, suggesting the development of a community engagement plan. He also suggested the city distribute a stipend to residents to participate in a citizens’ advisory committee, as well as childcare assistance, in an effort to “get people to show up.”

The city would be responsible for matching at least 25% of the grant amount in fiscal years 2023 and 2024. Montague intends to fund up to $28,000 over the two-year period through in-kind and cash contributions. species. The in-kind contribution, valued at $15,000, would include administrative support through dedicated staff time. The cash contribution, valued at $13,000, would be made available from the Community Development Discretionary Fund or an alternative credit decided by the Selectboard.

Agricultural giant plans to build $350 million canola crusher at Global Transportation Hub site

Cargill’s plans for a massive canola crushing plant in Regina are moving forward.

The company bought 247 acres at the Global Transportation Hub (GTH), just west of the provincial capital for $38 million. The provincial cabinet recently approved the deal.

Cargill said it would build at GTH because of road and rail infrastructure.

Jeff Vassart, president of Cargill Canada, said in a press release that the location would give farmers easy access for deliveries, while allowing the company to efficiently deliver agricultural products to end users.

The $350 million plant is one of several announced for the province last year. Construction was to begin this year on a facility capable of crushing one million tonnes of canola.

The plant is expected to be operational by 2024.

“We see great potential in the growth and competitiveness of the canola processing industry and look forward to helping farmers access growing market demand,” added Vassart.

The sale is the first parcel of land sold in the 1,800-acre GTH since 2017. In 2019, the Province of Saskatchewan divested the struggling Hub to the management of Colliers International in 2019.

The land was sold at market value for around $156,000 an acre, although there were negotiations over the price given that the parcel is larger, according to the province.

The land was sold at market value for approximately $156,000 per acre.

A former Marine infantryman who left Kentucky to defend Ukraine in March was killed this week while fighting alongside the Ukrainian military, according to his uncle. He is considered the first American killed in combat.

Willy Joseph Cancel Jr., 22, lived in Kentucky and worked as a correctional officer before his death, Uncle Christopher Cancel said in an interview Friday.

The uncle said someone who had fought alongside young Mr Cancel called his father and told him he had left for a night patrol on April 24 and his unit had been overrun by Russian troops , maybe the next day. The uncle said the caller indicated that his body had not yet been found.

A fundraising page created by the family says Willy Joseph Cancel Jr.’s wife also received a call on Tuesday. “Your husband fought bravely, but unfortunately he did not survive,” the caller said, according to the account written by his father. He did not specify who made the call.

“Our whole family is simply distraught and we don’t know how to continue,” the post read.

A Ukrainian Defense Ministry official said on Friday that three foreigners – an American, a Briton and a Dane – had been killed fighting for the Ukrainian army’s International Legion. The manager did not provide their names for the record and asked not to be identified as he was not authorized to speak about them publicly. All foreigners fighting for this branch of the military are effectively part of the Ukrainian military as they receive government salaries and are required to sign contracts.

Mr. Cancel’s mother, Rebecca Cabrera, told CNN he worked with a private military contracting company, but on Friday his uncle said the family did not know the name of the company and did not had been contacted by any contractor after his death.

According to the Marine Corps, Willy Joseph Cancel Jr. spent nearly four years in the Marine Corps and was discharged for misconduct, leaving service as a private in November after serving time in prison for an offense undisclosed criminal.

The State Department said Friday it was aware of reports of Mr. Cancel’s death and would provide consular assistance to his family. “Out of respect for the family at this very difficult time, we have nothing further to announce,” said Jalina Porter, spokeswoman for the department. “We also want to reiterate that U.S. citizens should not travel to Ukraine during this active armed conflict.”

“This is a very dangerous situation,” she added, saying that American citizens in Ukraine were being targeted by Russian government security officials, and that “American citizens in Ukraine should leave immediately, whether it is safe to do so using commercial or private means”. ground transportation options available.

Since the February 24 invasion of Russia, an unknown number of Americans have volunteered to help Ukraine in various ways, including hundreds of military veterans seeking to join combatants on the ground. Ukrainian officials say thousands of foreign volunteers have joined the ranks of its army, but the actual number is hard to track.

Two other American veterans involved in the fighting in Ukraine were injured this week, according to the family of one of them.

Paul K. Gray, 42, of Tyler, Texas, and Manus E. McCaffery, 20, of Parma, Ohio, who had both served in the U.S. military, were injured on Wednesday when a Russian artillery shell touched their fighting stance, according to Mr. Gray’s mother, Jan Gray.

The two were waiting to ambush a Russian tank when shrapnel hit Mr McCaffery in the face and collapsed a concrete block wall on Mr Gray, injuring him in the leg, according to Twitter posts by an American journalist, Nolan Peterson. Video and photos recorded by Mr. Gray show the two camouflaged fighters receiving first aid and getting into a military ambulance shortly afterwards, with Mr. McCaffery’s face and head covered in bloody bandages.

Ms Gray, who is a nurse, said she spoke with her son via video after the attack, which confirmed the two were injured. “He’s fine,” she says of her son. “The other boy that worries me the most.”

Mr McCaffery’s family did not respond to a request for comment. Ms Gray said at least one member of the McCaffery family was traveling to Ukraine.

Mr. Gray was an Army infantry sergeant who deployed twice to Iraq during the height of hostilities there, according to the military. He told the Daily Texan in 2009 that he was medically retired with a Purple Heart.

Mr McCaffery has only been in the military for two years – a far cry from standard enlistment. He deployed to Afghanistan for a month in August 2021 and left the military in January. The army did not give a reason for his release.

Ms Gray said the pair grew close in Ukraine and went everywhere together.

Mr. Gray has been a strong supporter of defending Ukraine, she said. He moved to the country before the war, joined the army during the Russian invasion and has made several media appearances since to explain his decision.

“It’s my moral obligation,” he told Fox News in early March. “They are some of the best people in the world.”
