City Attorney Mike Feuer and Los Angeles City Councilman Paul Krekorian have requested a 75-day extension for the public to comment on the Federal Aviation Administration’s environmental review of the proposal.“This Burbank Airport project is a big deal, and San Fernando Valley residents deserve a full opportunity to weigh in with their views,”’ Feuer said. “That’s why I’m calling on the FAA to significantly extend the public comment period. As we’ve seen with the FAA’s changes to Burbank Airport flight patterns, what happens at that airport has a huge, daily impact on Valley residents’ quality of life.”The FAA will normally grant a 15-day extension where a commenting agency such as the city requests more time to review an environmental report, Feuer said.“The people of the San Fernando Valley are already suffering significant environmental impacts from the Hollywood Burbank Airport, including intensification of aircraft noise, air pollution. and ground traffic,” Krekorian said.“The replacement terminal, if built, could increase those impacts,” he said. “This draft environmental impact statement is almost 3,000 pages long and this project will impact the people of my district and the rest of the east San Fernando Valley for generations to come.”The Hollywood Burbank Airport Commission consists of nine members from Pasadena, Glendale, and Burbank. Pasadena’s three representatives on the board are former Pasadena City College Trustee Ross Selvidge and Pasadena City Council members John Kennedy and Steve Madison.In a letter to the FAA, Feuer and Krekorian said extra time should be afforded to ensure full public participation in the environmental review of the Burbank replacement terminal project.The environmental report addresses a number of potential effects concerning a project that directly affects the lives of the city’s residents and businesses in direct proximity to the project.

Suspend water charges and bonuses at Irish Water – Collins

first_imgAndrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up WATER charges should be immediately suspended until there is a complete review of the workings of Irish Water and how it is to be funded, according to Fianna Fail TD, Niall Collins.The Limerick deputy said this Wednesday that Fianna Fáil will force a special debate on Irish Water during its private members business in the Dáil this week.The opposition party is calling on the Government to fully review the funding model at Irish Water and immediately cease the payment of bonuses at the company.“There must now be a full and frank debate on the future of Irish Water. Since its inception there have been a number of high profile controversies at the organisation, including highly damaging revelations about the bonus system being constructed within the company.“Any public trust with the operation of Irish Water has been broken. People I talk to in Limerick are enraged at the bonus culture in the company along with the utter confusion as to what families will actually have to pay when the first bills land in January. The series of damaging mishaps – from the outrageous set-up and consultancy costs that only emerged under media questioning to revelations about five figure bonuses for senior managers – have left people in Limerick frustrated and angry.“Disgracefully, when Fine Gael and the Labour Party forced through the legislation setting up this quango, they did not allow any debate in Dáil Éireann. Indeed, at that time Fianna Fáil led a walk-out from the Dáil in protest at the Government’s strategy.“It is clear that the time has now come for an honest and fundamental debate about the role of this quango and what part it is going to play in the country’s future. We are using our Private Members’ time to call for a full review of Irish Water, with a full suspension of charges while that review is ongoing.“Fine Gael and Labour rejected debate in the past and we can now see the full damaging impact of their decision to push ahead with flawed Irish Water plans. This week they have the chance to press the pause button on that process and facilitate a fundamental review of the organisation. I would urge FG and Labour backbenchers in Limerick who privately claim to despair at the damage Irish Water is causing to take a stand and support Fianna Fáil in our attempt to force honest debate.” Linkedin Facebook WhatsApp Email Twittercenter_img Print Advertisement NewsSuspend water charges and bonuses at Irish Water – CollinsBy Staff Reporter – October 22, 2014 717 Previous articleOvercrowding crisis at animal sanctuaryNext articleLimerick woman in LGBT top 100 business leaders Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ielast_img read more

Relation between alkalic volcanism and slab-window formation

first_imgRidge crest-trench interactions along continental destructive plate margins may result in the development of slab-free windows beneath the continental margin. Slab windows were generated at various locations along the Pacific margin of the Americas and the Antarctic Peninsula during the past 70 m.y. Slab-window formation is temporally and spatially associated with mafic, alkalic volcanism. Lavas erupted above the loci of slab windows are geochemically indistinguishable from some ocean-island, plume-related basalts. However, generation of slab-window basalts from deep-seated mantle plumes requires the fortuitous initiation of plume activity following cessation of subduction. Asthenospheric upwelling and associated decompressional melting following slab-window formation are probably promoted by removal of subducted oceanic lithosphere from beneath the continental margin following the cessation of subduction. Major lithospheric extension is not a prerequisite for alkalic volcanism in this case. The close association of subduction-related volcanism and within-plate alkalic volcanism within the geologic record may also be explained by this mechanism.last_img read more
