Borough Approves Lease Of Anchor Point Parcels To Hilcorp

first_imgThe borough owns the surface and mineral estate of several parcels near Anchor Point, two of which were purchased by the borough for use by the Anchor Point Fire & Emergency Medical Service Area. The assembly passed the ordinance 8-1, at their meeting on Tuesday, November 20. Assemblymember Willy Dunne was the only vote in opposition. Hilcorp currently has oil and gas leaseholds of surrounding parcels and is working on production plans for the new lease area. The negotiated royalty rate with Hilcorp is 12.5 percent, with the intent that 9.75 percent of the royalties would be distributed as revenue to Anchor Point Fire and Emergency Medical Service Area. Assemblymember Dale Bagley: “Oil and gas is what makes the Kenai Peninsula go around, and makes Alaska do well. I am happy that there is a well down there, and I support drilling anywhere on the Kenai Peninsula.” center_img Dunne: “Considering the impacts of the oil exploration there, we heard lots of people talk against bringing an industrial exploration operation into a very quiet, residential area.” The total lease area is roughly 20 acres, and according to Marcus A. Mueller, Land Management Officer there will be no infrastructure above ground at any of the lease sites.

US Government Objects to Quebecors Reorganization Plan

first_imgThe U.S. government has asked a New York bankruptcy court to deny Quebecor World’s plan of reorganization because it releases third parties from environmental penalties and because the company owes unpaid taxes.The government’s motion, filed Wednesday, said Quebecor’s plan would release a “panopoly of non-debtors from a broad swath of potential liability,” including $150 million in Clean Air Act penalties, according to a Canadian Press news report. It also alleges that Quebecor owes more than $10 million in unpaid taxes.The third part non-debtors include the creditors’ committee, the syndicate committee, noteholders, debtor-in-possession lenders, directors, financial advisers and investment bankers. Other groups, including the Graphic Communications Conference and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, also are said to have filed objections to Quebecor’s plan.“Quebecor World received overwhelming support in the vote by creditors to approve the plan of reorganization,” the company said in a statement e-mailed to FOLIO:. “Objections to confirmation are not unusual and are typically addressed at the hearing on confirmation.” Earlier this week, Quebecor’s creditors approved the company’s plans of reorganization in the U.S. and Canada. Creditors also approved the members of Quebecor’s new board of directors, and named former R.R. Donnelley CEO Mark Angelson as chairman.Quebecor said it expects “many of the objections” to be settled before the company’s joint confirmation hearing, scheduled for June 30 in New York and Quebec’s Superior Court. The company said it also still expects to emerge from bankruptcy in mid-July.last_img read more

Hyundai is bringing a refreshed Ioniq Hybrid and PHEV to Europe this

first_imgThe exterior of the new Ioniq isn’t wildy different but we’re digging the more aggressive front end. Hyundai Fans of budget-friendly efficient transportation have reason to be excited because Hyundai announced on Thursday that updated versions of its Ioniq Hybrid and Ioniq Plug-In cars are destined for the European market for the 2019 model year.What’s new for 2019? Kind of a lot, actually. Hyundai’s started by updating the styling, though the changes here are more evolutionary than revolutionary with an updated grille and lighting. Inside the changes are more pronounced with a new infotainment and climate control set-up that replaces the previous Ioniq’s dull sea of black. The new system features an option 10.25-inch touchscreen display that can receive over-the-air updates and uses voice recognition alongside Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.The new Ioniq has some exciting tech under its skin too including a new “Green Zone Drive Mode” that can utilize more power from the electric part of its drivetrain in designated geographical areas. It also uses the Kona’s one-pedal driving system with advanced regenerative braking.While Hyundai hasn’t yet confirmed to us when the new Ioniq is destined to hit US shores, we do know that it will be available in European showrooms starting in the second half of 2019.new-hyundai-ioniq-3The biggest change to the new Ioniq’s interior is the addition of an optional 10.25-inch touchscreen that really lifts the interior of the car.

AMD rolls out 6300 server chips for higher performance watt

first_img © 2012 Phys.org Citation: AMD rolls out 6300 server chips for higher performance / watt (2012, November 5) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-11-amd-server-chips-higher-watt.html This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. (Phys.org)—Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) on Monday announced its launch of 16-core Opteron 6300 server chips. This is its newest series in server processors based on the chip designer’s Piledriver core architecture. The Opteron 6300 family has models with four, eight, 12 or 16 processor cores (up to 16 cores per socket for scaling in “thread-intensive” environments). AMD says the processors are designed for “virtualized server platforms that are central to private and public cloud deployments, big data systems and high-performance computing (HPC) clusters.” This is a sequel to its 6200 series; the 6300 series “Piledriver” chips show better speed than the 6200 series. More information: Press releasecenter_img Quad-Core AMD Opteron Processor Family Expands with New Low-Power Options The speed improvement is 40 percent—up to 40 percent higher performance per watt than the prior generation, according to AMD. That makes the new 6300 launch especially suitable for businesses running large-scale software systems, said AMD.Data centers are attracted to many-core processors for their needs, and the 6300 family should be attractive at data centers with heavy workloads. Dell thinks so. A spokesperson said, in the AMD press release, that the 6300 series can offer its customers performance gains beneficial for cloud computing, big data, and high growth data-center applications. Technical details include AMD Virtualization technology for virtualized environments, up to four memory channels with up to 1866 MHz memory, and support for ultra-low voltage 1.25v memory.Servers from Dell and HP based on the AMD Opteron 6300 Series processors will be available by the end of the year. AMD said the AMD Opteron 6300 Series processor will also be leveraged as part of a supercomputing deployment at Indiana University.The school’s earlier Big Red supercomputer is being replaced with Big Red II, for high-performance parallel computing, capable of performing one quadrillion floating-point operations per second (1 petaflop). The school provided details on the Big Red II computing environment. There will be two AMD X86-64 processors with 16 cores each, the nodes providing 32 cores and 64 GB of memory per node; plus GPU-enabled compute nodes, containing one AMD X86-64 processor and one NVIDIA GPU, with these nodes providing 32 GB of memory. All compute nodes are connected through the Cray Gemini interconnect.The 6300 launch this week follows AMD’s October “ambidextrous” announcement that it will be taking a new strategic move to bridge x86 and ARM processors for cloud and data center servers. The company said its goal in doing so is to offer desirable performance-per-watt for dense cloud computing solutions. The first 64-bit ARM-based processors for servers are expected in 2014.

This isn’t just an issue for the Western Trust but it is reflected right across the North.“Medical professionals have advised that antidepressants should only be prescribed to children under close supervision. FOYLE MLAHEALTH SPOKESPERSONMark H DurkanRise in antidepressant prescription for children linked to waiting lists – DurkanWESTERN TRUST A RECENT report has shown the number of antidepressants prescribed to children in Northern Ireland has risen by 6% since April 2015. SDLP Health spokesperson, Mark H Durkan has deemed the latest figures very concerning and undoubtedly linked to the rise in waiting lists.The Foyle MLA said: “In April, I raised concerns that our children were being failed due to underinvestment in mental health and unfortunately this issue has been aggravated by increased waiting lists. ShareTweet “It is very concerning that the figures obtained under this FOI request have shown the steepest increase among children under the age of 12.”The Foylw MLA added that more investment was needed by the health service in the early years of a child’s life.“Mental health issues during our formative years can have long-lasting effects; it is imperative that the issue of waiting times is addressed, to consider other mental health services and strategies before resorting to giving our children antidepressants.“Unfortunately, we have not seen resources being put in this area; this failure is glaring and has been for some time. “Investment in early years is not just important for the health and well-being of the child, but prudent investment for the future.”Rise in antidepressant prescription for children linked to waiting lists – Durkan was last modified: July 24th, 2018 by John2John2 Tags:last_img read more
