The department said in a court filing on Monday that the US government “expects that it may file a civil complaint related to the Deepwater Horizon disaster” after reviewing the relevant environmental laws. The government has not yet filed a civil action over the spill in the Gulf of Mexico, but has set out the practical details of any potential claim in Monday’s document, seen by City A.M.Hannah August, a spokesperson for the Department of Justice, said: “As we have said from the beginning, we are committed to ensuring that those responsible clean up the mess they made, restore or replace the natural resources lost or injured in this tragedy, and repay every cent of taxpayer money.”BP declined to comment on court matters. The district court in Louisiana is already set to hear more than 300 cases arising from the disaster on 20 April, and the firm has begun to sell assets to pay for the clean-up and $20bn (£12.9bn) compensation fund. Hayward will appear this afternoon before the parliamentary committee on energy and climate change to talk about the Gulf of Mexico oil spill and its implications for the UK. whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comPeople-TodayWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This PhotoPeople-TodaySenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming to Scottsdale (Take A Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search Ads Sharecenter_img whatsapp Tuesday 14 September 2010 9:16 pm Show Comments ▼ US expects to sue BP over spill Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Russia’s deputy premier to leave Rosneft chair

first_img Russia’s deputy premier to leave Rosneft chair Russian president Dmitry Medvedev has ordered top ministers to quit the boards of major state firms, launching a drive to separate politics from business less than a year before a presidential election.The most prominent target of the shakeout was Igor Sechin, a deputy premier with sweeping control over energy policy who as chairman of oil major Rosneft has masterminded a troubled strategic alliance with Britain’s BP.The removal of Sechin, prime minister Vladimir Putin’s most trusted ally, from the helm of Russia’s biggest oil company would stoke fears of a struggle for the Kremlin’s top job ahead of the March 2012 presidential election.Analysts warned Sechin’s removal would also weaken Rosneft’s position as Russia’s most powerful oil company.Sechin was the prime mover behind a deal struck by Rosneft and BP to explore for oil in the Arctic and conduct a $16 billion share swap that has fallen foul of a legal challenge by the tycoon partners in BP’s Russian venture TNK-BP.An arbitration panel will next week hear whether the share swap can go ahead independently of the offshore venture.“This is obviously negative for Rosneft as Sechin was seen as the biggest advocate of its interests – the shares are down – although the financial impact may be minimal,” said Karen Kostanian, head of research at Merrill Lynch in Moscow.The chairman of Gazprom, deputy premier Viktor Zubkov, was spared the axe, confirming the gas export monopoly’s privileged status as an instrument to project Russia’s energy might abroad. alison.lock whatsapp Thursday 31 March 2011 11:21 am whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ Read This NextWATCH: Shohei Ohtani continues home run tear, Los Angeles Angels winSportsnautYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofBaked Sesame Salmon: Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Tags: NULLlast_img read more

She was raised Episcopalian and is currently running for Congress in California’s 1st District. Photo: Worldlove Photo and Video[Episcopal News Service] When Audrey Denney decided to run for Congress in California’s 1st District, she had the support of some rather important Episcopal priests: her family members. All of them.Venturing into politics made Denney something of a family exception after her mother, stepfather and two older sisters all chose to enter ordained ministry, but their faith example and Denney’s own Episcopal upbringing have influenced how she approaches the campaign trail.“They’ve been an incredibly supportive family and presence in my life and inspired me to see what I’m doing now as living out our call to be God’s hands and feet in the world,” said Denney, a 34-year-old Chico resident who is running as a Democrat.In Alabama’s 4th District, voters are getting to know Lee Auman, 25, a Democrat who served as an Episcopal youth minister while attending Auburn University and later worked for two years as director of the conference center at the Diocese of Alabama’s Camp McDowell in Nauvoo.Lee Auman is an Episcopalian running for Congress as a Democrat in Alabama’s 4th District. Photo: Lee Auman for CongressFaith “informs my life,” Auman told Episcopal News Service. “It is an undercurrent that is always inspiring me and moving me and reorienting me as a person, and I want to take that into office with me.”Candidates wishing to bring their Episcopal roots to Washington, D.C., would find plenty of company in the past and present. The United States has a long history of political leaders from the Anglican tradition, and although the Episcopal Church’s representation in Congress has been eclipsed by other Christian denominations over the years, dozens of today’s senators and representatives still identify as Episcopalians or Anglicans.Episcopalians’ desire to serve their country, states and districts transcends party lines and regional differences. Rep. Suzan DelBene is a Democrat from Washington. Sen. Angus King is an independent from Maine. Rep. Andy Barr is a Republican from Kentucky. All credit their Episcopal faith with shaping their political work.“Being raised in the Episcopal Church, which is such an outwardly looking, active-faith community … we tend to be called to try and make a difference,” Barr told ENS in 2017 for a story about how faith inspires congressional Episcopalians’ public service.Candidate follows her faith into public serviceDenney’s desire to make a difference was forged at an early age, from her years attending St. Paul’s School in Visalia, California, to her confirmation at St. James Episcopal Church in Paso Robles.She earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in agricultural education from Chico State University and taught there for six years before taking a job with an agricultural nonprofit working in Ghana. More recently, she has worked as an agricultural education consultant.Denney also spent a year after college in El Salvador working with Cristosal, a human rights organization with roots in the Episcopal and Anglican churches. She later joined Cristosal’s board and served as president, and she continues to volunteer.Although Denney still occasionally attends Episcopal worship services, she developed a connection with Bidwell Presbyterian Church in Chico while at college and now serves on Bidwell’s mission committee.Denney, in a phone interview with ENS, described the moment a year ago when she began thinking of running for Congress. In her early 30s, she had reached a comfortable point in her life – “I was in this really kind of happy zone” – but soon felt called to something more.She was in the car talking with her sister, the Rev. Robin Denney, who mentioned being inspired by a recent news story profiling women in their 30s who had launched campaigns for House seats.“And there was this pause, and I said, ‘Well, why not you?’” the Rev. Denney told ENS.Her sister was visibly moved by the question, and both became quiet and pensive.“My stomach dropped in my belly and all of the hair stood up on my arms and I felt like the air was thicker in the car,” Audrey Denney said.She looked at her sister and asked, “Am I running for Congress now?” And her sister’s response was, “Yeah, I think you’re running for Congress.”Robin Denney, 37, is helping with her sister’s campaign while serving as an associate rector at St. Cross Episcopal Church in Hermosa Beach, California. Their older sister, the Rev. Amy Denney Zuniga, 40, is rector at Grace Episcopal Church in St. Helena, and their mother, the Rev. Shelley Booth Denney, is rector at the San Jose’s Episcopal Church in Almaden. The sisters’ stepfather, the Rev. David Starr, is semi-retired but helps at Holy Family Episcopal Church in San Jose.Audrey Denney poses for a photo between her sisters, the Rev. Robin Denney, left, and the Rev. Amy Denney Zuniga, who is holding her daughter. Photo: Worldlove Photo and VideoAudrey Denney is taking a different path but still has “a passion to see her faith lived out in the world,” Robin Denney said.“I think all people are called to serve God in whatever capacity that we have vocationally. Sometimes that’s taking care of a family at home,” she said. For the Denneys, that calling often has meant the priesthood. “And sometimes that’s running for office.”But candidate Denney doesn’t just have the backing of the clergy in her family. The Rev. Brian Solecki left his job as a minister at Bidwell Presbyterian Church to become her campaign manager. Early in the campaign, Solecki and Robin Denney joined Audrey Denney on a kickoff call with a consultant from the House Democrats’ campaign committee.“This is the highest ecclesiastical representation I’ve ever had on a kickoff call,” Audrey Denney recalls the consultant saying.Congress to be reshaped by Nov. 6 midterm elections The stakes are high in races like this across the country. Republicans hold a 23-seat majority in the House. Democrats hope to regain control after the Nov. 6 midterm election, to serve as a check on President Donald Trump, whose approval rating of around 40 percent has remained historically low. Republicans’ slim majority in the Senate is less at risk in this election, though several key Senate races are surprisingly competitive.The Episcopal Church does not get involved in partisan politics. It has a presence in Washington through its Office of Government Relations, which monitors legislation, coordinates with partner agencies and denominations, and develops relationships with lawmakers. The agency communicates frequently with the offices of an estimated 40 Episcopal members of Congress as of last year.Several developments this year may diminish that number in the new Congress. Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-New York, died in March. Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas, stepped down in April amid a sexual harassment scandal. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Florida, announced she is retiring after this term. Rep. Mark Sanford, R-South Carolina, lost his primary to a Trump-backed challenger.The Episcopal Church’s Office of Government Relations counts 40 Episcopal members of the current Congress as of last year. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceCalifornia’s 1st Congressional District is geographically large, covering the northeast corner of the state. Chico and Redding are its two largest cities, and much of it includes rural and poor communities far removed from the state’s metro areas. It also has swung between the Democratic and Republican parties in recent decades, and in 2016 it voted solidly for Trump.Denney is an underdog, according to projections on the FiveThirtyEight statistical analysis website, though she has an edge in fundraising over the three-term Republican incumbent, Rep. Doug LaMalfa. She also has touted her reliance almost solely on individual donations, rather than money from political action committees, or PACs.“We’re giving the incumbent a run for his money. That’s for sure,” Denney said.Auman is a long-shot candidate to unseat incumbent Rep. Robert Aderholt, a Republican who has represented Alabama’s 4th District since 1997. The district north of Birmingham spans the state, from Mississippi to Georgia, and is mostly rural. In 2016, it backed Trump by 80 percent, one of the president’s highest winning percentages in the country.But Alabama, despite its solidly conservative reputation, surprised the country by electing a Democrat, Doug Jones, to the U.S. Senate in a December special election. Jones’ win gives Auman and other Alabama Democrats at least a shred of hope.Auman said in a phone interview that he already was considering a run for Congress when Jones won, and the election of a fellow Alabama Democrat was further encouragement.“Growing up as a liberal-leaning person in this state, I always heard Democrats might as well not vote,” Auman said. “Obviously, Sen. Jones’ election showed us that wasn’t true.”Running for office, guided by faithAuman’s family attended St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Huntsville, Alabama, when he was young and later joined Church of the Epiphany in Guntersville, which he still considers his home parish. He lives in Union Grove.He also has a longtime connection with Camp McDowell, where he began attending summer camp as an “ankle biter.” During college, he worked in the summers as a camp counselor and eventually head counselor.Lee Auman worked for two years as director of the conference center at the Diocese of Alabama’s Camp McDowell in Nauvoo before stepping down in March to run for Congress. Photo: Lee Auman for Congress, via FacebookIn Auburn, where he served as director of youth ministries at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, Auman studied philosophy, partly because it seemed a logical step toward eventually attending seminary. Auman said he still is open to a future call to the priesthood, but his present call is toward public service in the political arena.“Shortly after our president was elected, I realized I didn’t need to wait until I was older,” he said. “I just needed to toss my hat into the ring because I’m just convinced we can do better than we’re doing now.”He sees Republicans campaigning on divisive issues and degrading the American political system, much like the money-changers whom Jesus cast out of the temple in the Gospels, Auman said.“My Episcopal church growing up had people of all political backgrounds,” he said. Agreement on specific issues wasn’t as important as coming together and praying with each other as Christians with shared values. He hopes to bring that spirit to Washington.Auman is one of at least two Episcopalians on Alabamans’ congressional ballots this year. The other, Rep. Bradley Byrne, is a Republican who has represented the 1st District since 2013.Denney said her Christian faith is guiding how she campaigns, emphasizing integrity over political expediency. She also sees many opportunities to apply her faith to the issues facing residents in California’s 1st District.“My entire lens on this campaign has been about justice,” Denney said – economic justice, racial justice, environmental justice, to name a few.The district is mostly white but also has sizable Asian, American Indian and black populations, census figures show. More than 10 percent of families in the district live below the poverty level, and many in rural areas struggle from lack of access to health care. And Denney said her interest in environmental justice was heightened by the Carr wildfire that destroyed more than 1,000 homes in Redding over the summer.When she talks to secular audiences on the campaign trail, the hope she describes for the future is a vision of seeking the kingdom of God, she said, even if she doesn’t use such terms with them.“That’s what fighting for justice is,” Denney said. “So, my faith absolutely has compelled me to step out in this way.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

The project originated as a design for a 7 storey apartment building. It is intended as a quiet and orderly residence with limited number of units which are large and spacious with 3-4 bedrooms. This aspect is quite different from other existing condominium projects.Save this picture!© Spaceshift StudioThe project owner wishes for a contemporary design which will be quite different from other surrounding buildings and could withstand the test of time. The building consists of 18 apartment units which are easy to maintain. Ground floor level consists of a lobby & reception, including a fitness room, staff quarter. The exterior area is designed for a swimming pool and changing rooms with outdoor shower areas and some open space courts. The apartment  on 2nd – 7th floor are residential  3 and 4 bedrooms units. The parking  facility is located underground.Save this picture!© Spaceshift StudioThe design concept started with a desire for a simple contemporary building with appropriate usage of various functional spaces. The basic intention is not to create an opulent architecture, but to create a design of spaces which project warmth and personal. Therefore the aim of producing a characterize of a domestic structure became more important than being trendy. Consideration was given to the facilitation of good ventilation by means of planning orientation to capture maximum natural breeze, views and natural light. This is achieved by splitting the building into 2 wings, separated by a small central garden court which contains a huge pine tree that could be seen from surrounding units.Save this picture!SectionAnd as this projects is located in Soi TonSon which mean ‘the Pine Lane’, the owner therefore named this building “ Pine Crest Residence”. By keeping this name in mind the architect decided to select the wood appearance for the external facade which resembles pine wood and yet create a warmth feeling for the large scale building. To utilize real timber would be too expensive and difficult to maintain and unsuitable for large scale building. So research was undertaken to process the fiber cement planks with acid stain in transforming the color that produces the most similar color and shades of real wood, and yet quite durable to the climate condition. The building utilizes 2 types of materials, acid stain fiber cement plank and washed stone aggregates as surface finishes. As for the washed stone aggregates, it is a very old technique used by Thai builders for many decades. Some may think it is outdated, but actually it can be appropriately applied and suitable to the overall design appearance.Save this picture!© Spaceshift StudioProject gallerySee allShow lessMarc Mimram Reveals Design for New TGV Station in MontpellierUnbuilt ProjectDEFACED Makes a Stand Against Controversial Demolition of NYC Graffiti MeccaUnbuilt ProjectProject locationAddress:Bangkok, ThailandLocation to be used only as a reference.

Conditional release for independent journalist Lamasiel Gutiérrez Romero

first_img to go further Reporters Without Borders today hailed the release of Lamasiel Gutiérrez Romero, a correspondent for the Miami-based Nueva Prensa Cubana website, on completion of a seven-month sentence on 22 March, but deplored the fact that her release was only conditional.“We welcome her release and we hope the 23 other journalists held in Cuban prisons, some without trial, will also soon be freed,” the press freedom organisation said. “But we know her release was not an act of clemency and we note that, bizarrely, she was freed conditionally despite completing her sentence. There is no justification for this restriction and we urge the Cuban authorities to lift it.”Punched and thrown to the ground when arrested by National Revolutionary Police in July on the Isle of Youth, where she lives, Gutiérrez was sentenced in August to seven months of house arrest for “resisting the authorities and civil disobedience.” She was placed in Mantonegro women’s prison in Havana province on 11 October for continuing her journalistic activities in defiance of the terms of her sentence.Gutiérrez says she does not intend to give up journalism and wants to continue working for press freedom and free speech, and for Cuba to become a democracy.Albert Santiago Du Bouchet Fernández of the Habana Press independent news agency, who was arrested around the same time as Gutiérrez and for the same reasons, is due to be freed in August. Twenty of the journalists rounded up during the March 2003 crackdown are also still in prison, serving sentences of between 14 and 27 years. Two other journalists, Oscar Mario González Pérez of the Grupo de Trabajo Decoro agency and Roberto de Jesús Guerra Pérez, who writes for Nueva Prensa Cubana and Payolibre, another website, were arrested last July and have been held since then without trial in State Security detention centres.
