ACE Debuts Online E15/Flex Fuel Roadmap

first_img By Gary Truitt – Sep 7, 2016 Previous articleChemChina Secures Funding to Acquire SyngentaNext articleImmigration, TPP, and Child Nutrition May be Lost Causes Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter SHARE ACE Debuts Online E15/Flex Fuel Roadmap A new tool developed by the American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) for gasoline and ethanol retailers is available online starting today.The website, an interactive version of ACE’s recently released E15 & Flex Fuel Retailer Roadmap, which can be accessed here, features an interactive calculator that retailers can use to compare current sales and revenue to results achieved by their peers currently offering higher blends of ethanol, says ACE Senior Vice President Ron Lamberty.“Our Roadmap website is similar to the guide we’ve just published for retailers, since both provide state-by-state laws, programs, statistics, and “back-of-the-napkin” examples of the profit potential of selling higher ethanol blends for an average retail store in their state. Those examples aren’t predictions, they simply show what a fictional ‘average’ store in that state could do if its sales increased at the level of current mid-tier or top-performing E15 & flex fuel retailers,” said Lamberty. “The Roadmap isn’t meant to be a ‘how-to,” it’s more of a “maybe you can.” On this website, we’ve added a feature that station owners or managers can use to plug in their own numbers – actual current gasoline volume, and different fuel and inside sales margins – to see the potential of higher blends, and help them decide if they want to take a closer look at offering their customers some new fuel choices.”Lamberty notes that the website’s state-by-state profiles feature important stats for c-store owners and operators including the number of flex-fuel stations, flex-fuel and total vehicles registered in the state and a comparison of those numbers to show the potential demand per state for E15 and E85 volume and stations.

Dogged Limerick maintain 100% league start with win over Galway

Captain Declan Hannon, Graeme Mulcahy and Gearoid Hegarty were all on target – with Cathal Mannion providing the reply.Galway were extremely efficient up front and their first wide arrived on 27 minutes, from a Canning free, by which time Limerick had hit seven wides.Prior to that, the Tribesmen were on target with Canning, from play and frees and perhaps the pick of the scores from Aidan Harte. Conor Whelan broke the home cover on 21 minutes and found a point – but the powerful forward was starved of possession.The Munster champions led 0-12 to 0-9 at the break but it may have been a bigger margin, had Seamus Flanagan kept his shot lower having been released by the tireless Graeme Mulcahy.The lead was made possible with points from Tom Morrissey, Reidy and David Dempsey. All six starting forwards were on target, which pleased the bulk of the 14,151 in attendance.David Dempsey found the net for the games opening goal, inside 60 seconds of the second period, catching high on the 13 meter line, after a lovely cross-field pass from Flanagan.Allianz Hurling League, LIT Gaelic Grounds, Limerick 2/2/2020 Limerick vs Galway Limerick’s Dan Morrissey and Joe Canning of Galway Mandatory Credit ©INPHO/Lorraine O’SullivanHaving lost Richie English to injury at half-time, Declan Hannon was next to be substituted, after just 40 minutes. Canning (free), Shane Cooney and Whelan reduced the deficit to a goal by the 43rd minute.Galway almost found the net but a wonderful Dan Morrissey hook denied Conor Whelan, before a goalmouth scrambled eventually saw Limerick win a free-out.Nickie Quaid made a good save from a Conor Cooney free but Galway appeared to lack creativity once they lost talisman Joe Canning in the 40th minute to a hand injury.Aaron Gillane landed two points, coming off the bench, while William O’Donoghue and Darren O’Connell also added to the tally.Allianz Hurling League, LIT Gaelic Grounds, Limerick 2/2/2020 Limerick vs Galway Limerick’s William O’Donoghue and Adrian Touhy of Galway Mandatory Credit ©INPHO/Lorraine O’SullivanCooney hit the cross bar with another free in stoppage time but this mattered little as Limerick ran out comfortable eight point winners.Galway managed just five second half points and despite Limerick hitting 15 wides in total, they never looked likely to suffer first defeat of 2020.Scorers: Limerick:David Reidy 0-7 (0-4 frees); David Dempsey (1-1); Graeme Mulcahy, Tom Morrissey, Aaron Gillane (0-2 each); Declan Hannon, Gearoid Hegarty, Seamus Flanagan, , William O’Donoghue, Darren O’Connell (0-1 each)Galway: Joe Canning 0-7 (0-5 frees); Conor Whelan 0-2; Shane Cooney, Conor Cooney (free), Sean Bleahane, Padraic Mannion, Aidan Harte (0-1 each)Limerick: Nickie Quaid (Effin); Aaron Costello (Kilmallock), Sean Finn (Bruff), Richie English (Doon); Dan Morrissey (Ahane), Declan Hannon (Adare) (capt), Barry Nash (South Liberties); Darragh O’Donovan (Doon), William O’Donoghue (Na Piarsaigh); Gearoid Hegarty (St. Patrick’s), Tom Morrissey (Ahane), David Reidy (Dromin-Athlacca); David Dempsey (Na Piarsaigh), Seamus Flanagan (Feohanagh), Graeme Mulcahy (Kilmallock).Subs: Tom Condon (Knockaderry) for Richie English (half-time); Diarmuid Byrnes for Declan Hannon (40 mins), Aaron Gillane (Patrickswell) for Seamus Flanagan; Darren O’Connell for David Dempsey (60 mins); Brian Ryan (South Liberties) for David Reidy (65 mins).Galway: Murphy; Sean Loftus, Gearoid McInerney, TJ Brennan; Padraic Mannion (catp), Shane Cooney, Aidan Harte; Adrian Tuohey, Sean Linnane; Diarmuid Kilcommins, Cathal Mannion, Joe Canning; Jason Flynn, Conor Whelan, Brian Concannon.Subs: Conor Cooney for Brian Concannon (half-time), Sean Bleahane for Canning (46 mins), Darragh Burke for Diarmuid Kilcommins (52 mins), Paul Killeen for Sean Loftus (55 mins); Jack Grealish for Sean Linnane (65 mins).Referee: Colm Lyons (Cork).The post WATCH: Dogged Limerick maintain 100% league start with win over Galway appeared first on Sporting Limerick.

Second threat scribbled at Ector Middle School

first_imgLocal NewsGovernment WhatsApp Second threat scribbled at Ector Middle School Facebook Pinterest By admin – March 21, 2018 Pinterest Facebookcenter_img Twitter WhatsApp Previous articleNew elevator motors installed at Carlsbad CavernsNext articleNORTH AMERICAN HOCKEY LEAGUE: Jackalopes return home to face Roadrunners admin Twitter Timeless musician, Tony Bennet, is on tour and scheduled to be at the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center Monday. For the second day in a row, a threatening message was scribbled on a wall of a bathroom at Ector Middle School, 809 W. Clements Ave.The copycat message, also written in pencil, says a shooting would take place at 11 a.m. Thursday.It is the third such message left at Ector this year, along with two similar messages and two social media threats made at Permian High School, a news release said.The district is asking students and parents to help.“If you know anything about these messages, report it. Student Crimestoppers is always available and allows all tipsters to remain anonymous. Call 333-TIPS. Of course, you can always talk to a teacher, counselor or principal at your school,” Public Information Officer Mike Adkins said.Only about one-third of students attended school at Ector Wednesday — between 500 and 600 students.Ector Middle School is in its fifth year of improvement required status under state accountability standards. If the campus doesn’t come off the list, it will face closure or the Texas Education Commissioner will appoint a board of managers over the whole district. Noel and Zavala elementary schools are in the same position.“A day like this — with no learning taking place for most kids — hurts the students and their families, the school, and the community tremendously,” Adkins said.“We need our entire community to realize these types of threats cannot continue. We need our kids in school, learning every day. We want to assure parents we will always investigate threats like this. Our police officers are following up on potential leads now. Criminal charges will be filed, if possible,” he added.More Information ECISD Facebook page.last_img read more

I think I’d like to job-share

first_imgI think I’d like to job-shareOn 11 Sep 2001 in Personnel Today Irecently had a new addition to my family and am finding it difficult to jugglemy work and domestic responsibilities. One possible solution is a job sharewith another HR manager and I have discussed this with a colleague in anotherorganisation who is thinking along the same lines. Is this realistic and how dowe go about it?MargaretMalpas, joint managing director, Malpas Flexible Learning, writes:Oftenemployers who have job sharers say they were sceptical at first but have foundit an excellent experience. First work out whether you can work with the otherperson – you  are going to need to havethe same values about being organised, communicating and not letting each otherdown. If this all looks good, then put together a plan and the benefits whichwill sell it to your  managerPeterLewis, consultant, Chiumento Consulting Group, writes:Jobshare is an option if you have found a reliable, like-minded colleague; butthere are a few issues you should consider. The first is availability of theright organisation, the right role and the right balance for you both. Checkout what job share jobs are being advertised in the personnel magazines; andask the specialist HR recruiters to let you know what kind of job sharepositions they are handling. They should be able to give you advice on thestate of the market for job share HR roles. Theincreasing trend towards outsourcing parts of the HR function means that thereare  opportunities to work as aself-employment consultant, which may give you the flexibility of hours thatyou are looking for. Options include joining a consultancy, either on apart-time or associate basis, or the two of you could offer HR services basedupon your mix of skills.JoSelby, associate director, EJ Human Resources, writes:Firstly,congratulations on your new arrival.  Inresponse to your question, job share is one option and a solution that isbecoming more common.  However, theviability of such a solution is something you and your employers will need toexplore.Beforediscussing this with them, I would advise you to think through the pros andcons of a job share, both from your and your employer’s perspective.  You may wish to consider some of thepracticalities: who would be the other half of the job share, sharing the roleand responsibilities, communication between the two job holders etc. as well asthe financial implications for yourself.  If,having thought it through thoroughly, you see it is as being viable, I suggestyou discuss your proposal with your employers and see if this is something theyare able to accommodate.

Darwin’s crabs hauled onto the net

first_imgA collection of crabs obtained by Darwin on his famous voyage aboard HMS Beagle has been made available online by the Natural History Museum.The new database is part of an ongoing effort to digitize the museum’s catalogues, and contains images and details of 40 different taxa.The crustaceans were collected while Darwin was sailing on his five-year journey 1831 – 1836, which led him to develop his theory of natural selection. The crabs were just one type of the vast array of organisms he collected, and upon his return found their way into the collection of the zoologist Thomas Bell. Darwin and Bell became immersed in cataloguing the Galapagos turtles, and the crustaceans were apparently forgotten.The University of Oxford recovered the collection in 1862, which has been kept in the Natural History Museum ever since.

THOSE FOLKS WERE TOUGH BY JIM REDWINE

first_img GAVEL GAMUT BT JIM REDWINETHOSE FOLKS WERE TOUGHMy Mom’s three brothers and one of her three sisters served in the Army during World War II (1941-1945). Aunt Betty was a nurse, Uncle Bud, who was a rodeo cowboy, was in the cavalry, Uncle Buck flew close air troop support over Europe and Uncle Bill killed and saw killed way too many men from Anzio to Germany. Mom sent any extra we had, and some not so extra, to support her siblings and their comrades.My Mom’s Mom’s Mom’s father, my great-great grandfather immigrated with his parents from Bern, Switzerland in 1852 when he was fourteen. His father served as a career soldier inMy great-great grandfather, John Giggy, enlisted in Company H, Forty-Fourth Indiana Volunteer Infantry on August 28, 1861. His first major battle was Fort Donalson then he was wounded at Shiloh and sent to the military hospital in Evansville to recover.After a short furlough he rejoined his regiment in Murfreesboro then at Chickamauga was wounded in the hip on September 19, 1863, after which he walked back to Bridgeport, Alabama using a bed slat for a crutch and having nothing to eat for 3 days but 3 crackers. He was then ordered to the hospital in Nashville before being furloughed again until he rejoined his regiment at Chattanooga on December 31, 1863 (Happy New Year?)He continued fighting and marching, marching and fighting until mustered out at Indianapolis in October 1865. He became a farmer and a stone mason and fathered 9 children including my great grandmother, Agnes (Giggy) Vulgamore.Thereafter he simply went about his life without thinking his country owed him anything more than a fair opportunity to raise his family and be left alone.I never had the chance to meet him but I am confident his toughness helped buy me and my siblings a better life. Thanks to Grandpa, Aunt Betty, my uncles and all the other tough and non-assuming veterans who did their duty so the rest of us could do things they could not have dreamed of.FOOTNOTE: For more Gavel Gamut articles go to www.jamesmredwine.comFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Astronaut named chief marshal

first_imgThe Harvard Alumni Association (HAA) announced that Stephanie D. Wilson ’88, a NASA astronaut and engineer who flew three missions aboard the space shuttle Discovery, has been chosen by her classmates to serve as Harvard’s chief marshal for Commencement 2013.Elected each year from the members of the 25th reunion class, the chief marshal represents a longstanding Harvard tradition. On Commencement Day (May 30), the honoree hosts the Chief Marshal’s Spread — a highly anticipated culinary event for dignitaries and guests — and leads the afternoon procession of alumni into Harvard Yard. The chief marshal also designates “marshal’s aids” to perform various duties as part of the HAA’s Committee for the Happy Observance of Commencement (“The Happy Committee”).“It is an honor to be selected by my class to serve as chief marshal,” Wilson said. “I am very humbled to have been selected among such accomplished and talented candidates. In an era where inspiring and educating the next generation of young people is crucial, Harvard provides unique opportunities to excel in any chosen field. I look forward to serving as chief marshal for the 2013 Harvard Commencement and to ushering the next generation of leaders into the world.”Wilson, the second African-American woman to travel into space, joins a notable group of alumni who have returned to Harvard as chief marshal. They include David Rockefeller ’36, LL.D. ’69, Fred Glimp ’50, Ph.D. ’64, Emily Mann ’74, and John Lithgow ’67, Art.D. ’05. A note in the 1892–93 Harvard Graduates’ Magazine indicates that the custom of chief marshal likely began in the 1880s following Harvard’s 250th anniversary celebrations. A little over a century later, in 1990, Ursula Oppens ’65 was named the first female chief marshal.The position is a special honor among members of the 25th reunion class. Each year, it is filled by a person who has not only achieved success in his or her career but also contributed both to society at large and to the College.Wilson was twice honored with the NASA Exceptional Service Medal and has three Space Flight Medals to her name. She also received the Harvard College Women’s Professional Achievement Award and the Harvard Foundation Scientist of the Year Award. She is a member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the Association of Space Explorers, and the Society of Women Engineers.Wilson has also been a member of the Harvard Board of Overseers since 2007. She said she has valued the opportunity to “reconnect with Harvard, to help Harvard remain true to its mission of providing excellent teaching and research, and to give back to a community that has given so much to me.”“This answers the question, ‘What does one do with a liberal arts education?’ Literally and figuratively, fly to the moon,” said HAA President Carl F. Muller ’73, J.D. ’76, M.B.A. ’76. “Perhaps astronaut Wilson will start a Harvard Club in outer space.”Harvard’s 362nd Commencement will be held on May 30.
