We like traditions but you shouldn’t feel you need to only choose black if you’re playing in the front row.Aside from colour, you will want to ensure you have good stability and comfort. For optimum stability most props choose an eight-stud sole. That is eight metal studs that can drive into the ground and make the player virtually immovable. The problem is that an eight-stud sole is exceptionally uncomfortable on a hard surface. For that you want a mix of plastic molded studs and shorter metal studs.Update your footwear game with our handy guide to the best rugby boots for props.Best Rugby Boots for PropsCanterbury Stampede Pro SG Boots(Canterbury)We included the Stampede Pro SG in our boots for flankers guide. That shows just how versatile it is. Quick enough for ball-carrying back-rows with all the elements required for those at the heart of the scrum. The bootie-style fit offers comfort and sweat-wicking properties as well as trimming some weight off the boot.The reduced weight is incidental, though, as this is designed for members of the tight five. The leather forefront and PU upper provide durability and abrasion resistance to last for season after season. The boots also have shock absorbing properties, which mean that whether you’re lifting in lineouts or packing down in the scrum, it will take that bit longer for your legs to fatigue.+ Extremely attractive boot that looks classy without drawing attention to itself+ Packed with innovation and technology but without a massive price tag– The bootie fit may take some time to get used too if you haven’t experienced it beforeBuy Now from Lovell Rugby for £70Buy Now from Sports Direct for £69.99Buy Now from ProDirectRugby for £64Adidas Kakari SG Boots(Adidas)We are all aware of that prop who has boots that would be considered retro back in the 1980s. How to bring them back up to date? The Kakari might do the job.It is a very reasonably-priced boot given its quality and attractive but understated styling. That is combined with excellent traction through the traditional eight-stud metal sole. Finally there is plenty of protection covering the toes of the boot so you will have a bit more comfort when the inevitable happens and a fellow front-rower’s boot comes crashing down on top of your own.+ Great styling without going over the top+ Plenty of traction no matter the surface– You will need a firm-ground pair for pre-season and early seasonBuy Now from Lovell Rugby for £42Buy Now from Sports Direct for £37Under Armour Spotlight FG Boots(Under Armour)It might come as a shock, but not every rugby game is played in a swamp on a winter’s day. Increasingly teams are using synthetic pitches or keeping their match pitches in top knick well into the season. In that case you don’t want a great big eight-stud sole that will slow you down and, arguably, offer less traction.The Spotlight is very lightweight. That is perfect for the modern prop who combines hard scrummaging with dynamic work in the loose. The Spotlight is a left-field boot for a prop but if you have hidden ambitions to play in the backs, it is the boot for you!+ Very lightweight, perfect for the agile front-rower+ The right amount of grip for an early-season or synthetic pitch– Almost no protection from a stray studBuy Now from ProDirectRugby for £50Adidas Kakari Z.0 SG Boots(Adidas)The Kakari Z.0 is classy and understated enough for even the most traditional of forwards.

Pennsylvania Bishop Charles Bennison says he will retire at year’s…

first_img Rector Knoxville, TN Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 [Episcopal News Service] Diocese of Pennsylvania Bishop Charles Bennison told the diocese Oct. 9 that he would retire from office at the end of the year.Bennison said in a letter to the diocese that the Rev. Ledlie I. Laughlin, president of the diocesan Standing Committee, told him that the committee wanted to elect a provisional bishop rather than either have Bennison call for the election of a coadjutor or have the diocese elect a diocesan who would be consecrated on the day of his retirement.Bennison, 68, could have continued to serve until November 2015, when he turns 72, the church’s mandatory retirement age for all clergy.“I believe that the interests of the diocese are best served if the process envisioned by the Standing Committee begins sooner rather than later, and therefore I have informed the committee that I will retire on December 31, 2012,” Bennison wrote. “I will do so in the confidence that my work is done.”The Pennsylvania Standing Committee has been at odds with Bennison since the mid-2000s over concerns about how he managed the diocese’s assets and other issues.Laughlin, who is the rector St. Peter’s Church in Philadelphia, wrote in a second letter to the diocese that the Standing Committee had decided in consultation with Bishop Clayton Matthews, head of the Episcopal Church’s Office of Pastoral Development, that “the best interests of our diocese will be served by the prompt election of a provisional bishop.” A provisional bishop exercises the full authority of a diocesan bishop but is elected to serve for a set period of time, generally as an interim between bishops, Laughlin explained in his letter.Matthews, a member of the presiding bishop’s staff, assists dioceses through pastoral transitions and the election of bishops. He already is working with the diocesan committee to identify possible candidates for provisional bishop, said Laughlin, who predicted that a special electing convention would be held in early 2013.“Looking ahead, please be assured that the Standing Committee intends to engage other diocesan leaders in decision making, work in close consultation with the office of the presiding bishop and provide timely communication to the entire diocese so all of us may be fully engaged in this vital next chapter of our common life,” he wrote.Bennison summarized the state of the diocese in the letter, saying that its congregations had attracted “outstanding clergy” and that the cathedral dean and chapter had made “remarkable progress” with a cathedral development project.“The members of the diocesan staff are outstanding in their skill and dedication. Wise, visionary and committed leaders – clergy and lay – serve our diocesan ministries and governance bodies,” he wrote. “Our diocesan financial house is in the best order ever.  The bonds of unity within the diocese and with the Episcopal Church are strong.  Our witness to Christ’s love and to social justice remains undiminished.”He told the diocese that he would “always be profoundly grateful” for what he called “the privilege and joy of serving as your bishop.”“I have loved my work, and I have loved each of you” Bennison concluded. “Please pray for me, and know of my prayers for you. May the love of Christ hold sway in all our hearts now and always.”During Bennison’s tenure, the Standing Committee called for his resignation more than once, including on the day he returned to work in August 2010 after the church’s Court of Review for the Trial of a Bishop overturned a lower church court’s finding that he should be removed from ordained ministry because he had engaged in conduct unbecoming a member of the clergy. The review court agreed with one of the lower court’s two findings of misconduct, but it said that Bennison could not be deposed because the charge was barred by the church’s statute of limitations.The review court said that Bennison failed to respond properly in the mid-1970s when he was rector of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Upland, California, and learned that his brother, John, who worked initially as a lay youth minister in the parish, had been having a sexual relationship with a member of the youth group that began when she was 14. John Bennison later was ordained a priest but deposed in 1977 for an unrelated offense. He was restored to the priesthood in 1980, but he was forced to renounce his orders again in 2006 when accusations of his abuse became public.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori inhibited Charles Bennison in October 2007 from exercising his ordained ministry when the church’s Title IV Review Committee formally accused him of the inaction. The inhibition expired with the review court’s decision.In September 2010, the diocesan Standing Committee asked the House of Bishops for its “support and assistance” in securing Bennison’s retirement or resignation. The bishops later that month called for Bennison’s “immediate and unconditional resignation.” The next day, Bennison refused to resign and has remained the diocesan bishop.The bishops and deputies who gathered in Indianapolis in July for the 77th meeting of General Convention made a historic statement about the relationship between bishops and dioceses, acknowledging that, on rare occasions, that relationship becomes severely strained, sometimes to the point of breaking.The convention, by way of Resolution B021, set up a canonical process for reconciling or dissolving an episcopal relationship.Resolution B021 was the result of a call (via Resolution B014) from the 2009 meeting of General Convention about how to help dioceses and bishops resolve their differences.The process convention agreed to is akin to the mechanism for a parish that finds itself in serious conflict with its rector (Title III.9.12-13). It was be added to the “Of the Life and Work of a Bishop” canon of Title III, the church’s policies regarding ordained ministry, and became effective Sept. 1.According to what is now Section 9 of that canon, it is intended for use when the relationship between a diocese and its bishop, bishop coadjutor or suffragan is “imperiled by disagreement or dissension” to the point where the bishop, two-thirds of the standing committee or a two-thirds majority vote of the diocesan convention deem the issues to be serious enough to invoke the process.The Pennsylvania diocese is scheduled to gather Nov. 10 for its 229th annual convention. As of the day of Bennison’s announcement, no formal resolution had been filed concerning activating the new canon. The Standing Committee had met monthly, as is typical, since General Convention. While the members discussed the new canon, there had been no announcement about whether the committee would vote to begin the mediation-dissolution process.Laughlin said in his letter that the standing committee was making plans to honor Bennison’s tenure at the convention.The Rev.

On This Day: US Nuclear testing begins

first_img Reply On This Day in History: September 19th, 1957Nevada is site of first-ever underground nuclear explosionFrom The History Channel On this day in 1957, the United States detonates a 1.7 kiloton nuclear weapon in an underground tunnel at the Nevada Test Site (NTS), a 1,375 square mile research center located 65 miles north of Las Vegas. The test, known as Rainier, was the first fully contained underground detonation and produced no radioactive fallout. A modified W-25 warhead weighing 218 pounds and measuring 25.7 inches in diameter and 17.4 inches in length was used for the test. Rainier was part of a series of 29 nuclear weapons and nuclear weapons safety tests known as Operation Plumbbob that were conducted at the NTS between May 28, 1957, and October 7, 1957. In December 1941, the U.S. government committed to building the world’s first nuclear weapon when President Franklin Roosevelt authorized $2 billion in funding for what came to be known as the Manhattan Project. The first test took place on July 16, 1945, at the Trinity site near Alamogordo, New Mexico. A few weeks later, on August 6, 1945, with the U.S. at war against Japan, President Harry Truman authorized the dropping of an atomic bomb named Little Boy over Hiroshima, Japan. Three days later, on August 9, a nuclear bomb called Fat Man was dropped over Nagasaki. Two hundred thousand people, according to some estimates, were killed in the attacks on the two cities and on August 15, 1945, Japan surrendered to the Allied Powers.1957’s Operation Plumbbob took place at a time when the U.S. was engaged in a Cold War and arms race with the Soviet Union. In 1963, the U.S. signed the Limited Test Ban Treaty, which banned nuclear weapons testing in the atmosphere, underwater and outer space. A total of 928 tests took place at the Nevada Test Site between 1951 and 1992, when the U.S. conducted its last underground nuclear test. In 1996, the U.S signed the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, which prohibits nuclear detonations in all environments.For more information on this day in history, go here.

Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Mama Mia When I see the word Alamogordo I think of the US government’s chimpanzee primate research center, hidden away, locked away in the desert, from public view, and their biomedical invasive testing on the chimps. Who knew what horrid tests those animals had to endure? They had a long history of over two decades of abuse of the chimps. No way out for them, and the public mostly unaware of the horrors that the chimps had to endure, and even if the public was aware, they were powerless to do anything about it. 162 chimps. Some were retired to sanctuary life, I don’t know the status of the others. Who knows what goes on behind government testing facilities, locked away in remote areas of our nation? Maybe missing people are being tested on? Think it couldn’t happen? Think again. What about the big boats that have toilets that have chemicals to treat the human waste and go out 3 miles out to international waters off the east coast of Florida, and dump their toilet holding tanks into the Atlantic? How disgusting is that? Instead of holding the contents in the tanks, and coming back to the ports, and having a vaccum septic tank truck vaccum the holding tanks and suck the contents out and properly take the waste to the sewage treatment plants like they should, but no, it is easier, cheaper, and they can get away with it, because they don’t care about the environment! Cheap, cheap, cheap, as in free! As the boats head back into the port channels from the sea, people are out there swimming in the surf, playing in the waters, and fishing for their next meals in the water where the crap was dumped! Why don’t the lawmakers in Florida do something about that? Talking about bombs……..here is the latest bombshell !!!…..check out the next Apopka City Council meeting agenda packet, for Sept. 21, 2016, under the mayor’s report. To ratify a Community Development Director. I thought what? The city already has a Community Development Director? This must be a mistake! They must of meant a Community Economic Developer. No, not at all, apparently,.the wording of the packet indicates the impending departure of the Community Development Director…..????? They are getting hard to follow, and keep up with!

Testing with powerful underwater explosions to see how the US Navy warships weather the impacts of the blasts. Endangering both the crew and the marine life. Marine mammals such as whales wash ashore dead, or barely alive, and beach themselves, then die. Researchers then speed to the shores, and say they don’t have a clue as to the cause of their deaths. This happens in the calving areas of the ocean, where the whales give live birth and nurse their babies. The US government doesn’t care. Governor Rick Scott loves underground fracking too. Blowing our Florida underground layers apart after injecting deadly chemicals and large amounts of water under pressure, to seek out fuel deposits, and potentially causing massive damage to the Florida aquifer, our drinking water source, that is unrepairable. Thus causing potential earthquakes, and the potential to even turn on a water spigot and there could be an explosion!

It is a 3,800 square foot cottage that completely re-envisioned a small 1960’s structure. The original home, a beloved family nexus, was honored through the extensive use of quarter swan douglas fir, intimate proportioning of private spaces, and a conscientious connection to the landscape.   Diagrammatically the home is one elongated and one vertical fir box sitting atop a stone plinth. Textured natural materials and the complexities of internal spaces warm the crispness of this diagram. Architecturally the structure references vernacular materiality and combines this with a crispness of form.  Save this picture!Courtesy of DUDZIK StudiosNetworked interior spaces were combined, expanded, and rearranged to create fluid transitions. Interior douglas fir walls articulate conditions of the architectural diagram offering reference points to relative conditions of the exterior. Large-scale architectural glass elements create a seamless transition between internal and external spaces. Intimate proportioning of private spaces coupled with transparent walls toward the lake allows the low ceiling height to guide the eye out into the landscape. Interior conditions were conceptualized to continuously related to, frame, or reference the natural environment.     Only a very small percentage of the original structure was able to remain however the new construction references pervious conditions and works within the constraints of the former cottage. One of which is the fact that the original structure’s finished ceiling to finished floor height, the cavity in which the new residence’s cantilevers needed to be structured, is less than one foot.  Save this picture!Courtesy of DUDZIK Studios Furnishings and accessories were chosen to create an environment that is simultaneously sophisticated and casual. As the owners brought nearly none of their pervious possessions to the cottage the interior landscapes could be as articulately composed as the exterior architectural volumes. The collected narrative of modern furniture, with avant-garde vintage and historic accessories creates comfort through visual layering. Huzza of Harbor Springs was a primary source for interior accessories. DUDZIK Studios specifically designed custom case goods, including the desk in the office, for the Walloon Lake House. Additional furnishing came from Roche Bobois, Minotti, Flou, and Team Seven. These were combined with significant historic carpets to reference the spirit to the surrounding area that was popularized in Victorian times. DUDZIK Studios is focused on matters of design; from architectural, interior, graphic, and textile design to photography they couple a keen eye for aesthetics with rigorous research and scholarly intent. They are obsessed with authenticity, integrity, and reason, through which they find meaning, beauty, and soulfulness. Save this picture!Courtesy of DUDZIK Studios DUDZIK Studio’s believes “language and its subsequent architectural translation must pronounce a sophisticated sense of balance that celebrates design’s ability to provoke and incite, to stimulate fruitful, direct and complex dialog, yielding work that simultaneously confronts and connects. Our role is to analyze, articulate and present knowledge. This ability to simplify and express is key in today’s complex landscape. With the unfettered flow of information, goods, and ideas across every conceivable border and the resulting formation of a truly global culture, our social structures are inevitably becoming more complex. Amidst an assault of facts and figures, the problematic combination of innovation and tradition; the liberating at times chaotic affect of ever-evolving electronic media; We are participating in design’s next big challenge: to create on an environmentally and socially sustainable platform without sacrificing the richness of a highly networked world.” Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow less70 Homes in Landy Sud / PETITDIDIERPRIOUX ArchitectsSelected ProjectsInfographic: Saving the Earth with Sustainable CitiesInfographics Share Contractor: last_img read more

While perhaps not conventionally attractive, the Near Northside’s collection of well-used Queen Anne and Folk Victorian worker’s cottages offers lessons on how old buildings can be adapted to new uses and increased density instead of simply being replaced. We took this ethos of economy into consideration for the design of a new house on a lot that had always been vacant and approached it as a prototype for future infill houses in this rapidly gentrifying urban area.Save this picture!© Ben KoushSave this picture!PlanAt the front of the house is a detached 500 sf building that serves as our architectural office. We planned so that it could either be incorporated into the rest of the house or converted into an accessory dwelling unit for rental by future owners. Adjacent to the studio, also facing the street, is a carport with a storage closet. The actual living area of the house of 1500 sf extends in a line to the back property line behind the street-facing studio.Save this picture!© Ben KoushThe studio and the house are joined by a dog trot porch. Because the house is long and narrow, the east-facing side yard becomes the primary garden space. The walls of the house facing the garden are composed of rows of inexpensive 3’-6” wide by 8’-0” tall vinyl windows. Operable, aluminum casement windows, 3’-6” square, are aligned on axis with the main door (all equipped with bug screens) to provide for cross ventilation in good weather. Direct views from the street to the garden are modulated by the carport. The house and roof are dark green, which simultaneously blends with the vegetation and stands out in a street of white and pastel-colored houses.Save this picture!© Ben KoushSave this picture!© Ben KoushWe wanted the new house to respect the gentle scale of the modest surrounding urban fabric but to speak in its own contemporary voice. The idea was for it to sit quietly but also engage in a respectful dialogue with its older neighbors. The typologies, materials, and spatial patterns of vernacular building on the Texas gulf coast inform its design in specific ways. These include the long, narrow shot gun house floor plan; dog trot connecting porch shielded from the west sun by a screen of wood lattice, 4’ tall, pier and beam foundation, steep-pitched, gable roofs; and beveled exterior siding made of East Texas yellow pine. At a more basic level, Houston’s subtropical climate played a role in its planning.Save this picture!© Ben KoushThe variety of covered and open outdoor spaces interspersed between the air-conditioned areas can be used year-round, in sunny weather and in rain. We mixed references, both rural and urban, and traditional and modern. There is an intentional ambiguity in its appearance because the massing and many of the materials, which are sometimes all-but-identical to the other houses in the neighborhood, are deployed in such unconventional combinations.Save this picture!© Paul HesterSave this picture!© Ben KoushOur model for this dialectical approach, which seeks to reconcile modernity with history, was that taken by Houston’s most significant cultural patrons of the twentieth century, the French- American art collectors Dominique and John de Menil. In their major architectural commissions, they synthesized the best aspects of high and low culture to create a distinctive identity. Their best-known project, the Menil Collection building (1987), designed by Renzo Piano, is a good example. It is a large museum situated in a neighborhood of 1920s bungalows. Because it takes cues from its neighbors—a lawn in front, big porch, and simple massing—it appears at ease among its much smaller neighbors. By following this responsive model, we believe we have provided another example of sympathetic building attuned to its unique place and time.This was a design-build project.Save this picture!© Paul HesterProject gallerySee allShow lessW(an)W(an)S(hu) House / reMIX studioSelected ProjectsDuravit Zone in Showroom AND28 / Evgeny NeimandSelected Projects Share ArchDaily Model Infill House / Ben Koush Associates “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/932300/model-infill-house-ben-koush-associates Clipboard Save this picture!© Ben Koush+ 31Curated by Paula Pintos Share Manufacturers: GRAPHISOFT, Hansgrohe, VELUX Commercial, Western Window Systems, Artemide, Daltile, Flos, Kohler, MODULIGHTOR, Mitsubishi Electric, Progress Lighting, RAM Windows, Rheem, Sierra Pacific Windows, Signature Hardware, TechLighting, Toto, Vent-a-Hood, Whitehaus, AS Hanging Systems, +10Acor, Chicago Faucet, Fort Knox Mailbox, Jantec, Kingston Brass, MI windows, Mustee, Navien, Roman Solar, Whirlpool-10 Ben Koush ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/932300/model-infill-house-ben-koush-associates Clipboard Model Infill House / Ben Koush AssociatesSave this projectSaveModel Infill House / Ben Koush Associates Year: last_img read more

Emergency protests held against Veolia

first_imgBaltimoreWW photo: Sharon BlackWhen Veolia Transportation committed an unfair labor practice lockout of 700 school bus drivers in Boston on Oct. 8 and suspended five leaders of Steelworkers Local 8751, the city’s corporate media began attacking the union leaders.Boston newspapers used every name imaginable to slander the leaders of a fighting union known for having some of the highest wages and best benefits for school bus drivers in the U.S.If these so-called news organizations had any respect for the truth, they would have directed the name calling at Veolia.All you have to do is Google “Veolia” and “protest” to find hundreds of articles about the company’s union-busting reputation, support for Israeli apartheid and environmental catastrophes of all kinds.New YorkWW photo: Brenda RyanLuckily, the union’s good reputation extends far beyond Boston, and this weekend saw pro-bus driver emergency picket lines at Veolia offices in New York, Baltimore and Oakland.In New York, on Oct. 19, in front of Veolia’s SourceOne water consulting firm, members of the Peoples Power Assembly and Workers World Party carried signs reading “Reinstate the school bus union five” and “Fight racism, stop Veolia.” A representative from Transit Workers Local 100 joined the picket line.Oakland, Calif.WW photo: Judy GreenspanIn a YouTube video of the protest, Peoples Power Assembly leader Larry Holmes referred to Veolia’s long practice of changing corporate names to hide its hideous reputation: “We’re standing outside of one of Veolia’s subsidiaries called SourceOne. They think they can hide by being a subsidiary. We’re here to tell Veolia that they can run, but they can’t hide!”In Baltimore, on Oct. 21, members of the Baltimore Workers Assembly picketed in front of that city’s Veolia office, where the company runs a para-transit and cab service. Workers Assembly leader Sharon Black went inside and hand-delivered a letter demanding that Veolia stop its union-busting campaign against the Boston union.The Oakland, Calif., protest on Oct. 19, in front of Veolia’s East Bay Para-Transit office, attracted labor leaders such as Clarence Thomas, member of the executive board of International Longshore Warehouse Union Local 10 and co-chair of the Million Worker March, as well as Dave Welsh, retired postal worker and member of the San Francisco Labor Council. Richmond teacher and union member Judy Greenspan and Workers World correspondent Terri Kay also participated in the picket line, as did a member of the Colombian peoples’ organization, Marcha Patriotica, as well as a bus driver from Amalgamated Transit Local 192.The protest took place across the street from a Bay Area Rapid Transit station in Oakland on the second day of the subway workers’ strike. Almost at that very moment, two BART workers were killed by an automated train operated by management in a tragic and totally preventable accident.Safety issues are one of the central issues of the strike, along with increased pension and health care contributions.It’s no accident that, for its negotiating team, BART hired Veolia Transportation Vice President John Hock at a cost of $399,000. Veolia specializes in getting contracts for city services like water, waste management and transportation by promising local governments to “cut costs” through anti-labor and unsafe practices. nFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Another fatal explosion after gas leak

first_imgSite of gas explosion in East Harlem.WW photo: Johnnie StevensWhile investigations into the cause of fatal explosions in New York’s East Harlem and East Village are still in progress, a couple of things are certain. These so-called accidents are happening more often, and there are potential dangers from gas blasts everywhere.The March 26 explosion on Second Avenue in the East Village, which left two people dead, injured 22 and destroyed three buildings, was the latest incident in a dangerous trend involving gas and gas pipelines.From 1994 to 2013, the United States had 745 serious disasters with gas distribution, causing 278 fatalities, 1,059 injuries and over $110 million in property damage. During that period an additional 110 incidents through gas transmission caused 41 deaths, 195 injuries and over $448 million in damage to property. And an additional 941 incidents from gas of all system types resulted in 363 deaths, 1,392 injuries and close to $824 million in property damage. (nhpipelineawareness.org)Criminal prosecutors and the police believe the explosion in the East Village may have been caused by continued tapping of a gas line. Criminal charges could be filed as a result of the explosion.Members of Utility Workers Local 1-2 were part of the first responders’ team — along with the New York Fire Department, Police Department and emergency medical technicans — to secure the area by shutting down the gas systems, a representative of the union told Workers World.Meanwhile, displaced tenants are seeking legal counseling and compensation for their losses. A meeting to inform them of their housing and personal property damage rights brought more than 100 victims of the blast together with lawyers and housing activists.Wasim Lone, director of housing services for GOLES (Good Old Lower East Side), said the group is actively working to provide legal counseling and representation to  displaced tenants, as well as tenants who have not lost their buildings but have notices to vacate.Many of the tenants who lost their apartments and personal property focused on the landlords of the buildings. But Thomas M. Curtis, lawyer for the landlord of two of the buildings, told the April 1 New York Times that Consolidated Edison was to blame.“I think Con Ed is really culpable here for not shutting off the gas,” said Curtis. He added, “[The utility] could have shut off the main valve.” At the meeting, attorney Arthur Schwartz urged the tenants to “look at the broader picture.” He continued, “There can be multiple defendants. I believe Con Ed may have some blame here.”In a phone interview with Workers World, Michael McKee, treasurer of the Tenants Political Action Committee, said, “It seems that there was something definitely wrong in the inspection of the site of the explosion. Something is wrong if Con Ed didn’t smell any gas there.”Johnnie Stevens, of the People’s Power Assembly, agrees. Stevens mobilized an ad hoc group of housing and environmental activists following the gas explosion disaster in East Harlem last year. The group called on the National Transportation Safety Board, which is investigating the Harlem explosion, to fully investigate Con Ed and use its authority to hold a public hearing in East Harlem. The group is now demanding that Con Ed be fully investigated for both explosions.Rosa Maria de la Torre, organizer of the Chelsea Coalition on Housing, said the hearing must determine what should be done to provide adequate housing for the survivors of the explosion.Turning to the East Village blast, de la Torre said, “I am horrified by this tragedy and the deaths and the destruction it has caused. But with the growth of pipelines, there are potential catastrophes everywhere.”One of these pipelines, which lies under the West Village and Chelsea, won federal approval to start pumping natural gas despite strong opposition by residents of the area, who fear the project could cause an explosion and environmental contamination. The gas is distributed by Con Ed to Manhattan customers.The new Whitney Museum, which opens this spring, sits on top of the Spectra pipeline. The Sane Energy Project, which opposed approval of the pipeline, warned of the potential catastrophe in a March 12 letter to the Villager.“Building the Whitney on top of the pipeline puts visitors, workers and irreplaceable art, not to mention the Renzo Piano creation, at risk,” wrote Claire Donahue, program director of Sane Energy. “In the event of an explosion at the site of the vault, a crater at least the size of the museum itself is likely, and would affect an area about a block and a half in radius, with smoke, broken glass, closed streets and secondary fires affecting a much larger radius.”A funeral service for Nicholas Figueroa, one of the two men killed by the explosion in the East Village, was held on April 7.Littman lives in the area near the Spectra pipeline.

Somaliland newspaper editor freed on bail

The editor of the Hargeisa-based weekly Yool, Guled had to pay bail of 1 million Somaliland shillings (530 euros).————-19.03.2009 – Editor of Somaliland weekly sentenced to five months in prisonA court in Hargeisa, the capital of the northern breakaway territory of Somaliland, sentenced Mohamed Abdi Guled, the editor of the Hargeisa-based weekly Yool, to five months in prison on 17 March on charges of operating an unregistered newspaper and publishing fabricated information.Reporters Without Borders joins its partner organisation in Somalia, the National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ), in condemning this sentence. Read the NUSOJ press release.Also known as “Urad”, Guled was arrested on 26 February and held at the headquarters of the Criminal Investigations Department. Local journalists said at the time they thought the reason for his arrest was a report published two days earlier about alleged plots to murder parliamentarians, opposition party leaders and traditional chiefs.————–27.02.2009 – Editor of a Somaliland weekly arrested in HargeisaReporters Without Borders today condemned the arrest yesterday by police in the breakaway autonomous region of Somaliland in northern Somalia, of Mohamed Abdi Guled, editor of the privately-owned weekly Yool appearing in Hargeisa. The journalist is being held on the premises of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID).Several journalists in Hargeisa said that Mohamed Abdi Guled, better known as “Urad”, was probably arrested as a result of the publication of an article on 24 February, exposing planned murder attempts against Somaliland’s parliamentary deputies, leaders of opposition parties and traditional chiefs. “This arrest is illegal, since Somaliland’s media law lays down that the authorities can only arrest a journalist on the order of a court,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.“In these circumstances and knowing that no charge has brought against Mohamed Abdi Guled, he should logically be immediately released”, the organisation said.His fellow journalists also said that the incident, forcing Urad to spend the weekend in custody without going before a court, was aimed at “intimidating the entire journalist community of Somaliland”.
