Good effort trying to be objective in this article. I would like to give a constructive feedback which could help in clearing things up.1. It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsoredcenter_img The Indonesian government says it won’t issue a key permit for a plan to build artificial islands in Bali’s Benoa Bay as long as locals remain strongly opposed to the project.The plan is to build artificial islands for a multibillion-dollar complex featuring hotels, restaurants, entertainment venues and a convention center.The project appeared to die last August when another permit, the location permit, expired without the government renewing it. The fisheries ministry later issued a new location permit.With the developer now seeking to obtain an environmental permit, local communities are gearing up for another fight against a project they say could damage the mangrove-rich area on which their livelihoods depend. JAKARTA — Indonesian President Joko Widodo’s administration will withhold a key permit for a plan to build artificial islands in Bali’s Benoa Bay as long as strong opposition to the project remains among locals, a cabinet official told Mongabay.Environment minister Siti Nurbaya Bakar, who must sign off on the project for it to go ahead, acknowledged in an interview that many Bali residents remained hostile to the plan.“That has to be resolved,” she said on the sidelines of a recent event in Jakarta. “Otherwise, the environment ministry won’t issue [the environmental permit.]”Marketing literature showing the development plans for the proposed artificial islands in Benoa Bay. Image courtesy of PT Tirta Wahana Bali Internasional.The reclamation project was initially approved during the administration of the former president, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, who signed off on the rezoning of Benoa Bay for development before he left office in 2014. That same year, the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries issued a location permit for the project to PT Tirta Wahana Bali Internasional, an arm of Indonesian tycoon Tomy Winata’s Artha Graha conglomerate.The plan was to build artificial islands for a multibillion-dollar complex featuring hotels, restaurants, entertainment venues and a convention center. But after a mass movement arose against the project, the environment ministry under President Widodo refused to sign off on the environmental impact assessment for the project. The project appeared to die in August 2018 when the location permit from the maritime ministry expired automatically after four years.Three months later, however, the maritime ministry issued the same company a new permit for reclamation in the bay, valid for two years. Tomy’s firm is now applying for an environmental permit from the environment ministry so that it can proceed with its plans.I Wayan Gendo Suardhana, the coordinator of ForBALI, a local group that opposes the reclamation plan, welcomed the environment minister’s comments, but called for the conservation status of Benoa Bay to be restored so that the project could truly be killed.“[President Widodo] must uphold the mandate of people in Bali where he won 92 percent of the votes,” Gendo told Mongabay.Benoa Bay is rich with mangrove ecosystem that feeds into the local community.

Govt reserves are for everyone’s benefit

first_imgDear Editor,Around 4:00 pm Wednesday afternoon I used the ATM at the Republic Bank (Rosignol Branch) leaving my vehicle in the parking area.  I proceeded to pick up a drink at the shop opposite the Bank only to be hailed out by a Massy Security Guard who informed me that I can only park my vehicle there if I am conducting business with the Bank. I pointed out to him that my vehicle was the only one in the parking area, so I will not be inconveniencing anyone.The land in front of the Bank happens to be the Government reserve which Republic Bank Limited has no proprietary rights over. Therefore, the Bank must desist from controlling public usage over such.The development of the reserve is mutually beneficial for both the public and the Bank. Therefore, the bank should inform their security personnel of this fact and stop the harassing of the public.Krishna SukhooAccount holderlast_img read more

Parents: Do not relocate our kids

first_img“Our kids are not pingpong balls,” said Jim Gibson, superintendent of the Castaic Union School District. “They have already attended Hart, Valencia, Saugus and West Ranch. The next move we are going to make is to Castaic High School.” Castaic children go to Castaic district schools through eighth grade, then transfer to the Hart district for high school. Parents plan to send e-mails to school board members and letters to legislators to ensure that their children stay at West Ranch until Castaic High opens. Students at Castaic Middle School are circulating a petition and have gathered more than 200 signatures, a teacher said at Wednesday’s meeting. An active parent on the West Ranch campus and the mother of three teens, Pilar Scott-Walker offered to pay for fliers to be dispersed in the Castaic community. “It is going to be too late if we wait to say something next August,” Scott-Walker said. Castaic district officials said the Hart board has not made any decisions. Officials from both districts plan to meet to discuss the issue. But for many parents, the plans were enough to get them fuming. “We are angry in Castaic with the incompetent (Hart) board,” said Paul Morgan, father of both a seventh- and an eighth-grader at Castaic Middle School. The Hart board addressed the possibility of moving Castaic students to Golden Valley after district projections showed West Ranch enrollment topping off at about 4,000 by 2010. Several options were discussed during a Hart board meeting Jan.24, but no decision was made. The issue is expected to come back to the board at its Wednesday meeting. “We are seeking a plan that disrupts the fewest number of students, creates the least disruption to the educational program and is the best use of district resources,” district spokeswoman Pat Willett said. Willett said she has been screening phone calls from angry parents this week. She urged them to be patient. “The rumors are flying, and most of them assume that a decision has been made and that it’s going to hurt their kids. The bottom line is that no decisions have been made, and everything is going to be looked at very carefully.” Castaic High School is scheduled to open in 2010 on the NorthLake site of a 4,000-home SunCal development. connie.llanos@dailynews.com (661) 257-5254160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

CASTAIC – More than 50 parents and school administrators met Wednesday morning at Castaic Middle School with one message – leave our kids at West Ranch High. During a PTA meeting, they voiced their concerns with the Hart Union High School District’s options to deal with overcrowding at West Ranch. One option is to send Castaic students 35 miles for the round trip to Golden Valley High School every day. Other proposals include placing 22 portables on the West Ranch campus at a cost of $4million and dividing Castaic-area students between West Ranch and Golden Valley. The problem is that a high school planned in Castaic won’t open until 2010, at best. last_img read more

Exclusive: Federico Fazio ‘practically a Tottenham player’

Available for only €10m, Tottenham are unlikely to find a better central defender for the price.last_img read more

Small blaze stopped short

first_imgNewhall resident Lauren Percivalle, 19, said she saw a ring of fire moving quickly up the hill only one block away from her house. She watched as trees exploded in flames.

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! NEWHALL – A small fire broke out shortly after noon Wednesday, spreading to brush and briefly threatening stores along Lyons Avenue and homes that back up to them. Los Angeles County firefighters came out in full force, aided by three helicopters and a bulldozer, and doused the flames within a half-hour. Fire Department spokeswoman Stephanie English said the cause of the fire was being investigated, though its origins appeared suspicious. About 3 acres of brush burned just steps away from Lyons Car Wash and Lube. “The fire was very close; I was a little scared,” carwash owner Sam Siak said. While no serious damage was reported, firefighters said dry conditions forced them to move fast and with plenty of resources. “This is the driest year in recorded history,” Battalion Chief Joseph Lindaman said. “The water content in the hillsides of Santa Clarita is at 3inches. We should have 15 to 17inches by now.” Lindaman said a normal response to a brush fire call would be five engines – Wednesday there was 12. The parched hillsides caused the fire to burn quickly and dramatically. last_img read more

‘We get on very well’ – Man City star Sergio Aguero denies Guardiola rift

first_img1 Sergio Aguero insists he and Man City boss Pep Guardiola have a strong relationship Manchester City star Sergio Aguero has insisted his relationship with manager Pep Guardiola is strong after spearheading their stunning comeback against Monaco.The Argentinian grabbed two goals as City twice came from behind to beat the Ligue 1 leaders 5-3 in a sensational Champions League clash on Tuesday.It was a welcome return to form for the 28-year-old, who is back leading the City attack following injury to impressive new signing Gabriel Jesus.Read more: ‘Attack, attack, attack!’ – Guardiola wants City to put more goals past Monaco in the crucial second legAguero briefly lost his place to Jesus, raising questions over how he fitted into manager Guardiola’s plans and whether he had a long-term future at the club.Speculation over Aguero’s future has recurred throughout the season but all parties have repeatedly expressed desire for the striker to stay, and he restated his commitment to the club on Tuesday following his match-winning double.Asked about Guardiola, Aguero – whose is under contract at City until 2020 – said: “The truth is we get on very well.“What he wants, above everything, from all the players is that we push a little more. He’s always asking me for more, more, more. Obviously it’s a sacrifice I have to make, that we all have to make, and fortunately tonight it worked and we’ll see if it keeps working in the next game.”On his future, he added: “I’ve always said I want to be here at the club, I’ve always said that at the end of the season it won’t be my decision.“The truth is that with these things it’s the club that handles everything, and obviously it’s always my intention to stay.”Aguero’s brace took his tally for the season to 20 and perhaps made a point to Guardiola after he was forced to settle for a substitute’s role in three successive games recently.But Aguero said: “The truth is that those things are for the manager to decide. The only thing I can do is keep fighting to be able to play.“Fortunately he counted on me, now I have to help the team and show what I can do.”City will now be favourites to advance to the Champions League quarter-finals but after such an open first leg against Monaco, their last-16 tie is not yet over.Aguero said: “It’s not over but it’s important that we’re two goals up. If it was one obviously it would be more complicated.”last_img read more
