US Navy Committed to Biofuels

first_imgSec of Agriculture Tom Vilsack says this may help pave the way for more commercial acceptance of biofuels in marine and aviation fuels. “The Navy’s intensifying efforts to use advanced, homegrown fuels to power our military benefits both America’s national security and our rural communities,” said Vilsack. “Not only will production of these fuels create jobs in rural America, they’re cost effective for our military, which is the biggest consumer of petroleum in the nation. America’s Navy shouldn’t have to depend on oil supplies from foreign nations to ensure our national defense, and rural America stands ready to provide clean, homegrown energy that increases our military’s energy independence and puts Americans to work.” He added this program operates outside the RFS so EPA limitations will not impact the adoption of biofuels by the military, “This program will move forward no matter what the EPA does or does not do.” He indicated this is the kind of effort the USDA can foster that does not depend on EPA approval.Farm groups, who just a few weeks ago were criticizing the White House for turning their back on renewable fuels, are now praising this program. NFU president Roger Johnson issued the following statement after the Farm-to-Fleet announcement, “While the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently took a step backwards in this area by reducing the 2014 targets for the Renewable Fuel Standard, we are very pleased that USDA and the Navy are taking a more forward-looking approach tor the future of energy in our country. NFU is especially appreciative of Secretary Vilsack’s extraordinary leadership on renewable energy issues.” Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articlePOET Hires Director of State AffairsNext articleTPA Bill Could Move in Congress Early 2014 Gary Truitt Ray MabusWhile the EPA has been putting limits on renewable fuel for passenger vehicles, the US Navy is moving full steam ahead to use renewable fuel in their ships and planes. The program is called Farm-to-Fleet and is a cooperative effort between the USDA and the Department of the Navy to incorporate more domestically produced renewable fuel into the Navy’s fuel supply. Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus says it is a matter of national security and financial security. “A secure, domestically-produced energy source is very important to our national security,” said Mabus. “Energy is how our naval forces are able to provide presence around the world. Energy is what gets them there and keeps them there. The Farm-to-Fleet initiative we are announcing today is important to advancing a commercial market for advanced biofuel, which will give us an alternative fuel source and help lessen our dependence on foreign oil.” He added price spikes in oil pose a real problem for the military and biofuels will help mitigate those price spikes, “Each time the price of oil goes up a dollar it costs us $30 million.”Mabus says that, starting in 2015, the Navy will integrate biofuels into their regular fuel program for both aircraft and ships, “The Navy will seek to purchase JP-5 and F-76 advanced drop-in biofuels blended from 10 to 50 percent with conventional fuels.” Wednesday’s announcement marks the first time alternative fuels such as advanced drop-in biofuels will be available for purchase through regular procurement practices. It lowers barriers for alternative domestic fuel suppliers to do business with DOD. Preliminary indications from the Defense Production Act Title III Advanced Drop-in Biofuels Production Project are that drop-in biofuels will be available for less than $4 per gallon by 2016, making them competitive with traditional sources of fuel.

‘The Office Gif Club’ GroupMe gives hundreds of students an Office gif a day

But I got the idea of sending her a different Michael Scott gif every day.”The friend liked the idea so much she told some of her friends about it, which resulted in a group chat with about six other people. Neil then decided to take the chat to GroupMe to let the numbers keep growing.“This lasted for about two days,” Neil said. “Then I figured I would expand it to GroupMe, so that I could easily add more of my friends and those friends could also add their own friends. The group probably started with around 12 members and grew steadily over the next few months.”The group saw its membership peak in August 2017 with nearly 450 members. The same month, Neil changed the name of the group to The Office Gif of the Day Club, which broadened his arsenal to include any gif from the show.“I decided that it was time for rebranding,” Neil said. “To be honest, I was running out of Michael Scott gifs.”However, the next month proved to be the darkest for the group. Sept. 19 at 4 a.m. someone single-handedly removed over 400 members from the GroupMe.Neil’s response to missing the deadline for the daily gif“I don’t know who this person was, and I don’t know why they did this,” Neil said. “I would definitely put them in the category of people who just want to watch the world burn.”The same day Neil recreated the group, naming it “The Office Gif Club Lives On” and added about 70 people who he remembered being in the original chat.The group has made an impressive comeback and currently has more than 400 members.Sophomore finance major Kaitlin Clare was one of the first people added to the new group. She’s a friend of Neil’s and said the simplicity of the group was what made her want to join.“I like that it’s something really simple that makes you smile daily,” Clare said. “It’s important to have the little things to make you laugh every day.”GroupMe warns that groups with more than 200 members often get noisy. To avoid this and ensure it maintains its status as a “gif of the day” club, Neil is typically the only one who posts. While he (and sometimes members) used to immediately remove anyone else who said anything in the chat, he’s recently taken a more lenient stance.“I don’t want my image to be exclusionary,” Neil said. “Sometimes people still post their own gifs, but I let the fact their gifs never get many likes deter them from posting again.”Anyone looking to join the group will need to find someone already in it for an invite. Neil takes requests for gif/caption combinations from any member via GroupMe direct message.

Report of fact-finding mission : death of Kazakh journalist’s daughter

first_img Reporters Without Borders and Damocles Network today released a previously unpublished report on the suspicious death on 21 June 2002 of Leila Bayseitova, 25, the daughter of Kazakh opposition journalist Lira Bayseitova.At this stage in the explanations provided by the police and judiciary, Reporters Without Borders and Damocles Network consider the version maintained by the authorities to be riddled with discrepancies and not very convincing.On 16 June 2002, while detained for illegal possession of drugs, the young woman was hospitalised in a coma. She died five days later. According to the official version, she committed suicide while suffering withdrawal symptoms.Reporters Without Borders and Damocles Network were concerned about the possible links between this death and Lira Bayseitova’s professional activity. The two organisations therefore quickly dispatched a fact-finding mission to Almaty (in south-eastern Kazakhstan) with the aim of clarifying the circumstances of this tragic death.The former editor in chief of the opposition newspaper Respublika 2000, Lira Bayseitova had just published an interview in the daily newspaper SolDat with Geneva’s former public prosecutor Bernard Bertossa, who confirmed to her the existence of Swiss bank accounts held by several senior Kazakh officials including President Nursultan Nazarbayev. She claims to have been the victim on several occasions of different forms of intimidation – physical attacks, telephone threats – as a result of her investigation into political corruption in Kazakhstan.Reporters Without Borders and Damocles Network have undertaken to continue following this case. In accordance with the wishes of the civil party, they have in particular proposed the help of independent experts in forensic medicine and toxicology in order to obtain a second expert opinion following exhumation of the body.- Download the report (.pdf, 200 Ko) KazakhstanEurope – Central Asia Reporters prevented from covering Kazakh parliamentary elections Regional newspaper editor harassed after investigating real estate scandal News October 30, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Kazakhstan February 5, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts News August 29, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Report of fact-finding mission : death of Kazakh journalist’s daughter Reporters Without Borders and Damocles Network today released a previously unpublished report on the suspicious death on 21 June 2002 of Leila Bayseitova, 25, the daughter of Kazakh opposition journalist Lira Bayseitova.
