Naughton Closure Likely To Undercut Demand At Westmoreland’s Kemmerer Mine FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Casper Star Tribune:Fossil fuel critics are questioning a Wyoming plan to spend up to $22.5 million in public funds to expand a coal mine even as its owner appears headed for bankruptcy and a key customer prepares to curtail consumption.State lawmakers earlier this year approved a measure that earmarked $15 million to relocate a highway north of the Kemmerer Mine, a move that would allow mining to expand. The legislature made its appropriation in the face of diminishing demand for the mine’s coal at a neighboring power plant. The measure calls for another $15 million contribution from “county or private funding,” expected to be a 50/50 split with Westmoreland Coal, the Kemmerer Gazette reported.Naughton Plant operators will shut down one of three generating units by Jan. 30, 2019, a PacifiCorp official said last week. “It’s a hard closure date for operations,” spokesman David Eskelsen told WyoFile. On top of that closure, Westmoreland Coal Company, which owns and operates the Kemmerer Mine, said a month ago it is considering reorganization—widely reported as bankruptcy reorganization—amid a troubled nationwide coal market.The developments regarding the mine and power plant raise questions about the economic future of Kemmerer, population 2,771, and surrounding communities. The circumstances also raise questions regarding the wisdom of Wyoming’s pending $22.5 million expenditure of taxpayer money.It’s another worrisome story from Wyoming’s energy sector, this time playing out in the state’s southwest corner, far from the better-known eastern Wyoming coal mines and power plants near Gillette. Despite criticism, the lawmaker who championed the road-relocation legislation doesn’t think his measure is either misguided or a waste.More: Tied To Coal, Kemmerer’s Future Looks Uncertain

“We lament all deaths, but it’s everyone’s destiny,” Bolsonaro said in front of the presidential residence in Brasilia earlier on Tuesday.Even in states and cities where leaders had previously instituted lockdown orders, authorities have been rapidly loosening restrictions in recent days, despite the number of daily new cases continuing to grow in most regions.Topics : Brazil registered another record number of novel coronavirus deaths over the last 24 hours, the health ministry said on Tuesday evening, as the pandemic in Latin America’s largest country shows no signs of slowing down.The nation registered 28,936 additional cases of the novel coronavirus, the ministry said, and 1,262 deaths. There are now 555,383 total confirmed coronavirus cases in Brazil and 31,199 coronavirus deaths.The fresh record comes as some Brazilian leaders, including right-wing President Jair Bolsonaro, continue to belittle the virus, warning that the economic fallout from quarantine measures will be worse than the virus itself.

In the meantime, the so-called “Belgium route” for pension funds has generated much debate, following confirmation that the pension fund of Aon Netherlands is thinking to relocate its pension plan there.“We need to ask ourselves whether we must allow pension funds to move from A to B in Europe,” said Omtzigt, who did not see any benefits from a European framework to prevent supervisory arbitrage.“The pensions system is a national issue, and it should stay like that,” he said. “The exceptions should be border labourers and people who work in more than one country. However, the Directive does very little for them.”Omtzigt also complained that the revised IORP only covered the capital-funded system.“Many other systems, such as pay-as-you-go systems and companies that keep financial reserves for pension benefits, are excluded from the rules,” he said.”Capital-funded systems are facing many additional requirements, whereas the genuinely weak pension elements in Europe remain untouched.”In his opinion, the rules for governance and pensions information in the directive are unnecessarily detailed.“The EC even offers explicitly the option to draw up rules for the letter font of the pension statements,” he said.“The question is, which problem the EC is solving, and why this must happen from Brussels? They haven’t regulated how bank statements should look, and haven’t harmonised manuals for cars or mobile phones.”According to Eric Bergamin, a pensions lawyer, the Netherlands has made poor decisions in its lobbying against the IORP. “It has continuously stated that we don’t want stricter solvency requirements in European legislation, but we have insufficiently advocated a proper European harmonisation of rules for capital-funded pensions,” he said.“As we do allow mobility, companies can now move to Belgium, using supervisory arbitrage.”For example, the Belgian supervisory regime does allow higher discount rates but demands a financial guarantee from the employer.In Bergamin’s opinion, harmonisation should have provided for European definitions of a fully funded scheme, investing under the ‘prudent person’, as well as a standard for a discount rate and recovery periods. Bergamin said: “The market value of certain safety nets, such an obligation to plug funding gaps in Belgium, and national safety nets in the UK and Germany, could have been taken into account in schemes’ holistic balance sheets. However, we don’t have all these elements now.”He said Brussels was looking to sharpen solvency rules, and pointed out that commissioner Michel Barnier had already announced that these would be looked at by the European Commission in its new assembly.Omtzigt also warned of “prudential supervision backdoor” in the proposed IORP review. The Dutch parliament should “draw a yellow card” to block proposed revisions to the IORP Directive, Pieter Omtzigt has argued.In an initiative memorandum for parliament at a meeting of the select committee for Social Affairs, the Christian Democrat MP said: “The proposed directive is counter productive. It will not encourage countries to introduce capital-funded pension systems, but will in particular lead to supervisory arbitrage and the possibly of tax arbitrage.”If nine countries issue a yellow card, the European Commission must reconsider its proposal.Three weeks ago, Omtzigt launched a similar proposal against the suggested IORP review in parliament but received support only from the Freedom Party (PVV), the elderly party (50PLUS) and the Socialist Party (SP).
This weekend marks the 19th annual American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Ripley County.The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life event is often defined as a celebration of life, symbolizing the courage and spirit of more than 600,000 cancer survivors who, each year, proudly walk the event’s survivor lap at more than 5,2000 Relay For Life events worldwide.“More people are surviving cancer than ever before and I am one of them,” stated Jeni Schnebelt, a cancer survivor.”“In fact there are nearly 14 million cancer survivors living today. Thanks to the advances we’ve made in the fight against cancer, I am living proof that this disease is survivable, but there is still more work to be done to ensure everyone diagnosed with cancer celebrates more birthdays.”“That is why we hold the Relay For Life of Ripley County each year. We are inviting all cancer survivors, no matter if it’s been one day or one decade since their diagnosis, to come out and be celebrated.”Local cancer survivors will be honored during multiple activities at the event beginning Saturday morning.Survivor celebration activities offer both survivors and caregivers an opportunity to experience healing, receive support, and celebrate their collective victory over cancer.Relay For Life begins with a Survivors Lap at 8 a.m. This inspiring lap honors the courage of all who have defeated cancer. Cancer survivors (anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer) join together to walk the opening lap – unified in victory and in hope. It’s an emotional example that Relay For Life is ensuring more lives are saved every year.“The Survivor Lap is one of the most moving experiences of my cancer journey,” said Jeni Schnebelt. Each year, I’m overwhelmed by the crowds of people who surround the track cheering on survivors like me. It reminds me that I’m not alone in my fight against cancer” says Schnebelt.After dark, those who have been touched by cancer are honored and those who have lost their battle are remembered during the Luminaria Ceremony. Candles are lit inside bags filled with sand, each one bearing the name of a person touched by cancer. “The Luminaria Ceremony brings to light the impact cancer has had on our community and inspires us to do everything possible to find a cure.”The atmosphere of Relay For Life is one of camaraderie and celebration, providing an opportunity for cancer survivors to pass the torch of hope on to those still battling cancer or those who might be touched by cancer in the future.If you would like to make a donation for a luminaria bag in honor or in memory of someone touched by cancer, please contact Jeni Schnebelt at firstname.lastname@example.org. Luminaria also will be available at the event. All donations received for luminaria and the Relay For Life as a whole are used to fund the American Cancer Society’s mission to save lives and create a world with more birthdays by helping people stay well, helping people get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back against cancer.

By Ed Osmond LONDON, England (Reuters) – India are favourites to retain the Champions Trophy tomorrow but they would probably have preferred to face different opponents than arch-rivals Pakistan in what is sure to be a highly-charged final.The neighbouring countries have moved on from years of political conflicts but emotions will run high as millions of supporters around the world watch the first major cricket final between the teams since the 2007 Twenty20 World Cup.One of the most unpredictable sides in world sport, Pakistan were the lowest-ranked side going into the tournament and produced a shambolic performance in their heavy opening defeat by India.As they have done many times before, however, Pakistan suddenly found their form with wins over top-ranked South Africa and Sri Lanka before delivering an outstanding all-round display to stun previously unbeaten hosts England in the semi-finals.India suffered a shock loss to Sri Lanka in the group stage before overwhelming Bangladesh in the semis and their captain Virat Kohli has been impressed by Pakistan’s resurgence.“The turnaround has been magnificent,” Kohli said.“Obviously, if you reach the final you have to play some good cricket and credit to them, they’ve turned around things for themselves really well.“The belief just showed on the field the way they played together as a team and regardless of who you play in the final, it’s always going to be challenging because once you start thinking that it’s a big game, then your mindset changes.”OUTSTANDING BATTINGIndia, who beat Pakistan by five runs in the Twenty20 final 10 years ago, have been lifted by the outstanding batting form of Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma.“What we are going to try to do is repeat the similar sort of cricket that we have played so far, knowing the strengths and weaknesses they have,” Kohli said.“I don’t think we need to look too far away from what we are doing as a group, focus on our skills and our abilities and believe in ourselves on that particular day.”Pakistan, without their leading fast bowler Mohammad Amir due to injury, strangled the usually free-scoring England batsmen on a slow wicket in Cardiff with a disciplined display of bowling and fielding.The Oval pitch should be more favourable for batsmen but India, who have beaten Pakistan in eight of their 10 World Cup and Champions Trophy meetings, will not be complacent.“We’ve seen some really surprising results and it’s been amazing for the fans to watch and for the players to be a part of,” Kohli said.“We played some really good cricket but we’re not going to take anything for granted for sure.”Pakistan’s rejuvenation has been built around the runs of opener Fakhar Zaman and the experienced Azhar Ali while Hasan Ali and Junaid Khan stepped up to compensate for the absence of Amir who is expected to be fit for the final.Their captain Sarfraz Ahmed said they had quickly forgotten the opening loss to India and simply focused on the next game in their bid to win the Champions Trophy for the first time.“After the India match, we just motivated the guys,” he said.“Don’t worry about the India match. This is gone. If we play good cricket, definitely we will win this tournament.”
