Removal of median strip from Bacolod street eyed

first_imgAccording to Ramos, this move willimprove the over-all traffic condition of the city. The reserved area may be paved, butcommonly it is adapted to other functions; for example, it may accommodatedecorative landscaping, trees, or a median barrier. A median strip or central reservationis the reserved area that separates opposing lanes of traffic on dividedroadways. This proposal, however, earned the ire of local residents, including environmentalists as it entails cutting down trees in the area. They claim that there is no congestion along that stretch of road and by cutting down trees – which brings cleaner air to the city – would only be detrimental to safety and health. Ramos authored a resolution enjoiningthe City Engineer’s Office (CEO) to consider the removal of the island.  The said resolution was passed to the CityCouncil last week. “The CEO will study and consider thepossibility of removing the center island to ease traffic congestion along thesaid areas,” he said.center_img According to Leonardia, he is open tothe request of the city council. He noted that the city government will form ateam to evaluate and enforce the proposals./PN The councilor added that the centerisland has outdated its original purpose and these spaces can be utilized tomaximize road use. On his part, Mayor Evelio Leonardia said he will seek the approval of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources relative to the resolution because of the existing trees in the center island. BACOLOD City – In a bid to ease themetro’s traffic woes, Councilor Dindo Ramos is proposing to remove the medianstrip on Narra Avenue at the Capitol Shopping Center.last_img read more

Michigan Man Detained in Russia on Suspicions of Espionage

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisNovi — A Michigan man is now facing formal charges of espionage for his involvement with Russia.Forty-eight year old, Paul Whelan of Novi was arrested in Moscow Friday on suspicions of spying. The retired U.S. Marine was in the country attending the wedding of a friend when he was detained. He’d reportedly visited Russia in the past, but his family denies his involvement in any illegal activity.“There’s just no reason that I could think of that he’d be detained by a government. I’ve mentioned before his background. He has a law enforcement background. He was a former U.S. Marine who served a number of tours in Iraq. He does corporate security. It’s a sort of personality you wouldn’t expect to be a law–breaker of any sort, let alone someone who’s breaking spy laws. It’s inconceivable to all of us that he could be considered a spy.”Borg–Warner, an automotive supply company based in Auburn Hills, Michigan, says Whelan is the company’s Director of Global Security.If found guilty, Whelan could be facing 10 to 20 years of imprisonment under Russian law.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: espionage, MICHIGAN, russia, spy, WhelanContinue ReadingPrevious 35-year-old man identified in fatal snowmobile accidentNext Oscoda Man Arrested for Assault with a Deadly Weaponlast_img read more

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool: Reds battle back to seal FA Cup quarter-final spot

first_img Liverpool pair Daniel Sturridge and Alberto Moreno celebrate the former’s goal against Crystal Palace Liverpool battled through to the last eight of the FA Cup after coming from behind to beat Crystal Palace 2-1 at Selhurst Park.Reds fans were fearing another upset against what has become their bogey team in recent seasons, and it went to script when Fraizer Campbell put the hosts in front in the first-half.Brendan Rodgers’ side gathered themselves, though, and looked the more likely team to score ahead of the break, and fit-again Daniel Sturridge finally had the visitors level shortly after the re-start with a neat volley.The Reds boss called on striker Mario Balotelli at half-time to add attacking potency to his side, and the Italian proved his worth once again by playing a hand in the winning goal.His powerful free-kick was well saved by Julian Speroni, but the rebound was pounced on by Adam Lallana, whose first-time finish sealed Liverpool’s progression as they held on for the win.Right from the very start there was a sense there would be goals, as fans witnessed an end-to-end opening at Selhurst Park.Liverpool mustered the first shots on target but it was Palace who scored the first goal, the ever-dangerous Dwight Gale causing problems for goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, whose punched clearance only went as far as Campbell, who took advantage of a defensive mix-up to slot home into an empty net.The Redmen responded well, controlling possession and forcing the Eagles back with some neat, patient approach play, which concluded with Lallana seeing a snap shot well saved by Speroni, who was on hand again to deny Philippe Coutinho moments later.Liverpool were really heaping the pressure on Palace at it seemed they had got their break when Sturridge was tripped in the box, though the referee waved away claims for a penalty.Lazar Markovic was a livewire for the visitors and he was next to go close to the equaliser, beating three defenders in an electric run but lashing his shot over the crossbar from 20 yards.But Palace had a livewire of their own in Gayle, who was denied by a brilliant save from Mignolet, after the attacker did well to control a bobbling pass to go one-on-one with the Reds goalkeeper.Palace seemed content to sit back on their lead and hit Liverpool on the counter, and with pacey attacking duo Gayle and Yannick Bolasie it was an effective strategy, and frustration grew for Liverpool as they repeatedly saw their attacking moves break down.After the break, though, it took little time for Brendan Rodgers’ side to finally find the back of the net, Daniel Sturridge slotting a volley through the legs of Speroni to deservedly level from Jordan Henderson’s ball into the boxThe half-time introduction of Balotelli gave the Reds another dimension up front, and – following his game-winning heroics against Tottenham – the Italian was involved again to put his side in front.The Merseysiders failed to keep the momentum in their favour, however, as Alan Pardew’s Palace began to push on for their second, and the hosts had their own shouts for a spot-kick turned down after the ball pinged up onto the hand of full-back Alberto Moreno in the penalty area, though it would have been a harsh decision against the Spaniard.Palace’s superiority didn’t last long though, as the Reds managed to close out the win to take a step closer to Wembley. 1last_img read more
