10 March 2010The recently flooded regions of Kenya could fall victim to water-borne diseases if public hygiene campaigns are not organized, the United Nations humanitarian wing warned today. This year’s rainy season in Kenya, which just begun and is expected to last through June, has killed at least 11 people and affected some 8,300 others. The northern, north-eastern and western regions of the country are the worst affected areas.The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said hundreds of livestock have been washed away and farms are submerged, particularly near the country’s border with Uganda, where mudslides have caused thousands to flee their homes.In the central district of Isiolo, the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has provided chlorine for water purification. Garba Tulla, a small town in the district known for one of the country’s large schools, may need additional support since the piped water distribution system has reportedly been damaged, said the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).Potable water is also needed in the north-eastern town of Mandera, near the border with Ethiopia and Somalia, where displaced people have been gathering. The town is known for droughts and frequent periods of famine.UNICEF is consulting with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Kenyan Red Cross Society to provide health support, including the distribution of health kits which are on standby.OCHA said it is also working with local partners on potential plans for flood-prone areas, in case of emergency.
Companies in this article: (TSX:ALA, TSX:BAM)The Canadian Press CALGARY — AltaGas Ltd. says it is selling its portfolio of U.S. distributed electricity assets held by subsidiaries WGL Energy Systems, Inc. and WGSW, Inc., to TerraForm Power, Inc., an affiliate of Brookfield Asset Management, for $940 million.The portfolio consists of 322 megawatts of generation facilities in 20 states and the District of Columbia, including 291 MW of commercial and industrial solar, 10 MW of fuel cells and 21 MW of residential solar assets.Earlier this year, the Calgary-based energy infrastructure company completed the sale of its interest in the Stonewall Gas Gathering System in West Virginia for $379 million.AltaGas says the asset sales are part of a plan to regain financial strength and flexibility to fund future growth opportunities in its midstream and U.S. utilities business.The company, which recently opened Canada’s first propane export terminal at Ridley Island on the West Coast, has been paying down debt after completing the $9-billion purchase of U.S. utility company WGL Holdings in July 2018.Last year it exceeded its target to sell $2 billion in assets to pay down bridge financing on the WGL deal.
SAINT JOHN, N.B. — Marijuana industry titans will gather in New Brunswick next week to discuss how to market cannabis in a competitive legal marketplace, and other issues raised by the dawn of government-run weed.The World Cannabis Congress will host 450 industry leaders starting Sunday evening in Saint John.Topping their agenda is the branding challenge: Health Canada is requiring marijuana packages to be a single, uniform colour without images or graphics other than the logo and a health warning.“We have to find creative ways to market our product and differentiate ourselves while remaining within the regulations,” said Ray Gracewood, chief operating officer for Organigram, a Moncton, N.B., based medicinal cannabis producer that is ready to enter the recreational market.Gracewood said the market needs to be able to develop brands when recreational cannabis becomes legal in Canada later this summer.“Without the opportunity to develop a brand that’s targeted in a responsible way to responsible adults, it allows the industry to be exposed to the illicit market and the continued growth of the illicit market where brands do exist and amazing packaging does exist,” he said.Organigram recently announced a number of brands, including Trailer Park Buds, through a partnership with the people responsible for the “Trailer Park Boys” television show. The firm’s Moncton facility has expanded several times and now has more than 260 employees.Gracewood said unless producers are able to be competitive within the regulations, people will be forced to look for loopholes.“I don’t think that is the intention, but there is a good chance that may become the end result.”Rock stars are becoming one early differentiator.In March, Vancouver-based licensed producer Invictus MD brought on KISS co-founder Gene Simmons as “chief evangelist officer” and investor.Simmons, who maintains that he has never smoked cannabis in his life, said he is “bullish” on Invictus. He has purchased $10 million in stock in the company.The Tragically Hip, meantime, are a creative partner and shareholder in Newstrike Resources Ltd., an Ontario marijuana producer.Derek Riedle, publisher of cannabis culture magazine “Civilized” and co-chair of the conference, said the invitation-only event is an opportunity to draw on the experience of other jurisdictions around the world.“A brand is something we can talk about here in Canada but there are remarkable differences between the way Canadian and American companies need to behave in those marketplaces. It is not just within the Canadian context,” he said.The conference agenda includes other items such as impaired driving and the unanticipated impacts of legalization.Riedle said they will also explore the lessons learned in different jurisdictions in the United States and elsewhere around the world, but he said all eyes are on Canada.“Because Canada is moving towards a legal recreational market first and before the vast majority of other jurisdictions around the world, we really are viewed as global leaders. The rest of the world is interested in what’s going on here in Canada,” he said.But Riedle stresses there are many lessons to be learned and Canada is still very early in the game.
“I will continue to speak out against anti-Semitism, Holocaust denial, hate speech and the use of anti-Semitic appeals by violent extremist groups to recruit new followers,” Mr. Guterres said in remarks delivered by his Chef de Cabinet, Maria Luiza Ribeiro Viotti, at the Queens Museum in New York. The event marked the 70th anniversary of General Assembly Resolution 181, which called for the division of the former British mandate for Palestine into Arab and Jewish states. Adopted on 29 November 1947, the resolution led to the birth of the State of Israel on 14 May 1948. “Resolution 181 was subsequently cited in the Declaration of Independence of the State of Israel, marking the beginning of a relationship between Israel and the United Nations that has endured and deepened, even during challenging times,” Mr. Guterres said. He noted that since becoming a UN Member State in 1949, the cooperation between the UN and Israel has grown in peacekeeping, sustainable development and disaster relief, among others. Having visited Israel three months ago, Mr. Guterres said he saw “remarkable examples of innovation and solutions” that can help all countries fight climate change and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

THE DEPARTMENT OF Foreign Affairs has set up a crisis response team to help Irish citizens still in Libya, amid an upsurge of violence in the North African country.Around 200 people have been killed in the last two weeks in the capital, Tripoli, and in the eastern city of Benghazi.Libya has suffered chronic insecurity since Col Gaddafi’s overthrow in 2011 — with the new government unable to check militias that helped to remove him and facing a growing threat from Islamist groups.Fighting between the rival militias in Tripoli has forced the closure of the city’s international airport, while Islamist groups are battling army special forces in Benghazi.In the past week, many countries have ordered their citizens to leave and, in some cases, have evacuated them.“Approximately 100 Irish people remain in Libya, most of them long-term residents,” Foreign Affairs Minister Charlie Flanagan said in a statement today. My Department has set up a Crisis Team and is currently in contact with these Irish citizens and their families, to offer advice and assistance.Flanagan said the Department “will continue to provide direct assistance and updated information to Irish citizens and their families, over the coming days”.Any Irish citizens still in Libya who haven’t yet registered their details are being urged to do so at the DFA website.[DFA.ie]Meanwhile, 47 French and British nationals evacuated on a French naval ship from Libya arrived early today in the southern port of Toulon.The group consisting of 40 French citizens, including the French ambassador, and seven Britons were received by the top maritime official in the region.The evacuees included 14 teenagers and children.The group was extracted from Tripoli on Tuesday night by sea because of the clashes at the airport.France on Monday advised its nationals — of whom fewer than 100 remained in Libya – to leave the country immediately and contact the embassy for evacuation.However several nationals who also have Libyan citizenship have opted to stay.

Olivier Giroud proved that he is a man of his word after following through with his promise of shaving his head if France were to win the 2018 World CupPrior to the start of this summer’s tournament in Russia, several members of the French World Cup squad had promised to carry out a number of different challenges if they were successful.As it turns out, France won the World Cup for the second time in their history earlier this month after beating Croatia 4-2 in the final at Moscow.Giroud, Nabil Fekir and captain Hugo Lloris all promised to shave their hair off with Juventus midfielder Blaise Matuidi set to ride a bicycle from Paris to Turin.Report: Euro 2020 qualifying Group H George Patchias – September 11, 2019 Euro 2020 qualifying Group H is being controlled by France and Turkey, but Iceland is still in with a shout.Reigning world champions France ran…And it appears that Giroud has come good in his promise after unveiling his new hairstyle on Twitter on Sunday.Chose promise chose due! ??#MerciThomas #Paritenu #???? #FierdetreBleus #???? pic.twitter.com/V8c9YpXD3J— Olivier Giroud (@_OlivierGiroud_) July 22, 2018
Manchester United legend Gary Neville has raised concerns over Paul Pogba’s long-term future at the club.Ever since returning to United in the summer of 2016 for a then-world record transfer of £95m from Juventus, Pogba has been a mere shadow of the player he once was in Italy.But, under caretaker coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Pogba appears to have begun consistently delivering the kind of performances that justify his price tag.The French midfielder has delivered nine goals and six assists in 12 appearances and has played a vital role in United’s climb back into the top four of the Premier League along with booking a quarter-final spot in the FA Cup.But Neville is worried that the influence of his agent, Mino Raiola, will have a poisonous effect on Pogba’s long-term future at Old Trafford.“To be bang honest on Pogba, for two years, for £95m he gave United nowhere near enough in terms of performance levels and contribution,” Neville told Sky Sports.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“In the last two or three months, he’s playing like the player that, to be fair, was bought for £95m. And he’s an outstanding player when he is playing like he is doing at the moment.“If he plays for Manchester United for the next five years at the levels he’s playing now, there will be no one happier than us two [Neville and fellow pundit Nemanja Vidic] watching him out there because he’s absolutely outstanding.“But in the back of my mind, the problems that we witnessed in the first two years will emanate again at some point. Because I think his agent will be onto him, he’ll be wanting his little move away, he’ll be wanting his next pay-off and that’s my problem with it. His commitment to the club has got to be long-term.“At the moment I love the way he’s playing. He’s brilliant, he’s outstanding. He could tear Liverpool apart on his own today if he makes those runs into the box. But this is only three months of football out of two and a half years, nearly three seasons.“So let’s keep it in balance. If he’s playing like this in two years all of us will be saying wonderful, fantastic things.“My personal view is his agent will be onto him in the next transfer window or two or three and be saying to him ‘come on, we need to get over to there now. I need to get over to there.’ And that’s my worry with him. Can he be trusted for the long term at the club? We trust him at the moment. Can we trust him for the long term?”LONDON, ENGLAND – JANUARY 13: Paul Pogba of Manchester United celebrates victory after the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United at Wembley Stadium on January 13, 2019 in London, United Kingdom.

June 14 is the birthday of the American flag as well as the U.S. Army. It’s also the birthday of Battle Ground Mayor Mike Ciraulo, his Vancouver counterpart Tim Leavitt noted at Tuesday’s Flag Day festivities.It was a pretty good Flag Day for Mae Carse.More like Flags Day, really, because the 7-year-old Vancouver girl was waving three of them Tuesday afternoon during Flag Day at Fort Vancouver.She has plans for them, too. The Hough Elementary first-grader will take them to school for next year’s Veterans Day assembly.After all, her grandfather is a veteran.“Lifeguard,” the girl explained.Her mother, Heather Carse, gently reminded Mae: “Coast Guard.”Other people also were there on behalf of loved ones who have served, including Debbie Bruns.“I came to pay my respects to the flag,” the Vancouver woman said.About 200 yards to the west, the name of her son was the first entry inscribed on the “Global War on Terrorism” section of the county war memorial. Marine Lance Cpl. Cedric Bruns died in 2003, the first local serviceman to die in the Iraq War.“That was eight years ago,” she said.The annual event on the Vancouver Barracks Parade Grounds was a star-spangled celebration that included music and Prairie High School’s rifle drill team. There also was a history lesson from Marshall Elementary fifth-graders, who doubled as judges for the second annual mayors’ patriotic necktie contest.The trophy was captured by Scott Higgins, mayor pro tem of Camas. Higgins scored with a necktie that appealed to the patriotism — and the inner Tasmanian devil — of all fifth-graders. Higgins said he borrowed the tie, which featured the cartoon character “Taz,” from Camas School Superintendent Mike Nerland.A couple of other candidates put their chips on kid-level artistry. Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt said his tie was created by 4- and 5-year-olds at the Firstenburg Community Center play school. Last year, Leavitt rode the design of “Project Runway” winner SethAaron Henderson to a tie (so to speak) with Washougal Mayor Sean Guard.
Firefighters on Friday morning knocked out a grass fire in the median of Interstate 205 near state Highway 500.The fire was reported just before 11 a.m. and was under control within about 15 minutes.“It’s really dry grass,” but firefighters can take care of grass fires fast if they aren’t wind-driven, said Capt. Dave James, a Vancouver Fire Department spokesman.The Vancouver Fire Department sent two engines, a water tender and a brush rig to fight the blaze, James said. Firefighters remained on scene for an extra half-hour to make sure the fire didn’t start again.Also around 11:30 a.m. firefighters with Clark County Fire & Rescue responded to reports of a grass fire on Interstate 5 near exit 14, the Ridgefield exit.Crews quickly suppressed the quarter-acre fire burning in the freeway median, said Clark County Fire & Rescue spokesman Tim Dawdy. The left lane of the northbound lanes was blocked for about half an hour and heavy smoke was reported over the roadway.“People need to be extra cautious. Don’t throw burning materials from cars. Be extra careful with campfires if you’re going to camp this weekend. And no backyard burning until the ban is over,” Dawdy said. “It’s incredibly dry.”
(WSVN) – An asteroid is heading our way, and will come closer to Earth than the moon.NASA says the asteroid called TC4 will fly past our planet on Oct. 12.Scientists estimate the small asteroid, estimated to be between 30 and 100 feet in size, could come as close as 4,200 miles from Earth’s surface. But it’s expected to pass at a much safer distance of about 27,000 miles away, or just one-eighth of the distance to the Moon.But never fear: scientists say they are “absolutely certain” it will not make landfall.“Scientists have always appreciated knowing when an asteroid will make a close approach to and safely pass the Earth because they can make preparations to collect data to characterize and learn as much as possible about it,” said Michael Kelley, program scientist and NASA Headquarters lead for the TC4 observation.NASA says TC4 is approaching at about 30,000 miles per hour.Learn more at nasa.gov.

Dan Cohen AUTHOR The Army’s end strength is scheduled to drop by 30,000 soldiers by Oct. 1, 2016, including 15,000 active-duty troops, under the fiscal 2016 defense authorization bill awaiting President Obama’s signature.The annual policy bill calls for the Army’s active component to shrink to a level of 475,000 soldiers. The service ended FY 2015 with 491,365 soldiers, nearly 17,000 fewer troopers than it had one year earlier on Oct. 1, 2014, reported Army Times.In recent years Congress has allowed the services to miss their end strength targets by 0.5 percent to account for short-term fluctuations in recruitment and attrition. The overage of 1,365 soldiers at the end of FY 2015 fell within the variance allowed under statute. This year’s authorization bill includes language increasing the permitted wiggle room at the end of the fiscal year to 2 percent as insurance against sharp declines in recruiting, or an unexpected slowdown in separations and retirements, reported the Times.The Army’s active-duty end strength is slated to drop to 450,000 by the end of FY 2018.The Army National Guard is scheduled to shrink by 8,200 soldiers to an end strength of 342,000 by Oct. 1, 2016, while the Army Reserve is scheduled to drop by 4,000 soldiers to a size of 198,000 by the end of FY 2016.Over the next two years, the Army plans to eliminate 2,400 civilian positions, with further cuts possible afterward, an Army spokesman said last week.
Dan Cohen AUTHOR The military’s push to ensure its installations are energy resilient has slowed, according to a McClatchy DC Bureau story which makes its case primarily by pointing out that only a small portion of the solar arrays built on installations over the past decade are connected to microgrids. But while there is no overarching mandate to install microgrids at all installations, efforts to provide bases an “islanding” capability are advancing, the story states. “I would say things have slowed, but the program has broadened,” said Katherine Hammack, who led the Army’s effort to adopt renewable energy as its installations chief under President Obama. “I don’t see it as a negative. I’m glad that the Trump administration is encouraging the strategy to continue,” she said. Hammack told McClatchy that DOD has solicited bids for microgrids on “many” projects, including one to build and operate a system for Joint Forces Training Base Los Alamitos, Calif., which would help power the facility in the event of a nearby earthquake. And despite its overstated headline, the story provides other evidence that the services are moving to enhance the energy resiliency of their installations. The Southern Co., which has built 14 solar farms with generating capacity exceeding 400 megawatts at installations in Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Mississippi, now is pursuing opportunities to develop microgrids for the military following its acquisition of PowerSecure. Company officials are “in discussions with senior leadership of the military” about microgrid projects, said Rebecca Gray, the utility’s DOD liaison.Additional evidence can be found in a new report produced by ADC in partnership with Converge Strategies. It features four case studies of how installations — in conjunction with either state or local investment, or significant participation by local authorities — have deployed a mix of distributed energy resources in combination with a microgrid to enhance their energy resilience.Photo by Spc.
