Air Force Reports Diverting 66 Million for PFASPFOA Contamination Cleanup

first_img ADC AUTHOR The Air Force has submitted a letter to Senate Democrats acknowledging it has diverted more than $66 million from other contamination remediation projects toward PFOA/PFOS cleanup, CQ reported Thursday.Sen. Thomas Carper (D-Del.), Environment and Public Works Committee ranking member, released the letter Thursday detailing that funds from fiscal 2018 and 2019 BRAC accounts were used to clean up sites contaminated by past use of PFAS-based firefighting foam, according to the report.The letter is in response to congressional Democrats’ pressure on the Pentagon to account for whether it has adequate dedicated funding to clean up the contaminants.Maureen Sullivan, the top DOD official leading the agency’s environmental cleanup, said in a March House Energy and Commerce subcommittee hearing that PFOA/PFOS contamination would cost “approximately $2 billion.”Carper and Sens. Gary Peters (D-Mich.) and Patty Murray (D-Wash.) followed with a letter to acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan requesting details on its nationwide PFOA/PFOS clean-up plans, including “all diversions, or planned diversions” of funds intended for other cleanup projects. They said they had “been informed that in at least one instance, the United States Air Force has diverted funds intended for a site cleanup of non-PFAS contamination to PFAS-related cleanup efforts.”Ellen Lord, under secretary of Defense for acquisition and sustainment, replied June 5 that the “Air Force BRAC has diverted $66 million from non-PFOS/PFOA cleanup projects.”In a news release Thursday, Carper said Congress “needs to ensure that the Department of Defense has the resources needed to fully address” its “liabilities related to the DOD-related PFAS contamination in our communities.”Coast Guard photo by Chief Petty Officer Nick Ameenlast_img read more

first_img Chill Out With Humm.ly Music Therapy App mobile-music-therapy-hummly-app-will-chill-you-out Twitter Mobile Music Therapy: Humm.ly App Will Chill You Out Facebook Email News This app might be first ever to use professional music therapy, integrated with music and health data, to help your moods and be more mindfulPhilip MerrillGRAMMYs Oct 24, 2017 – 1:17 pm Music and wellness are a natural fit. For example, studies have shown that 30 minutes a day at work spent listening to desired music on-demand boosts cognition among I.T. workers. The Humm.ly wellness app, for iOS at iTunes, was designed to integrate many insights like that from consulting music therapists as well as from founder Joanna Yu’s previous years in music.Working in affiliation with American Music Therapy Association certified professionals, Yu brings strong music production chops from her native China and data smarts from her U.S. college degree in applied mathematics. Now studying to be a music therapist herself, Yu expects Humm.ly will help her larger task as an advocate for wellness.Choosing music to adjust mood for an increased sense of wellbeing seems likely to grow on the scientific and medical side of digital engagement, while on the consumer side, streaming music services increasingly supply a universal jukebox in daily life. Humm.ly could be balanced at just the right point.Chris Cornell: Music Therapy Program Established In Seattlelast_img read more

ALERT Town Beach Is CLOSED For Swimming Due To High Bacteria Count

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Recreation Department has announced that Silver Lake is currently CLOSED for swimming due to a high bacteria count detected in this week’s water testing.“To minimize the risk of illness from contaminated water, beaches are required to be tested for “indicator” bacteria ― bacteria that indicate the presence of fecal contamination,” reads the announcement. “Silver Lake is tested for Enterococci or E. coli.

Stake sale process of debtridden Jet Airways delayed as banks awaits RBI

first_img Close The experts are recommending adequate caution to avoid legal conflict in the future. In a report, brokerage firm SBI Caps highlighted, “Resolution plan that involves debt to equity conversion of listed companies like Jet Airways could witness a high risk of litigation. As the RBI circular stands struck down, resolution plan that involved equity conversion could be subject to extended litigation by existing sponsors as well as shareholders.” Naresh Goyal quits as Jet Airways chairman, stake slashed to 25% In picture: A Jet Airways aircraft in Leh. [Representational image]Twitter/Jet AirwaysFinancially struggling Jet Airways’ stake sale process may have to wait due to the lack of clarity after the Supreme court struck down the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI’s) February 12, 2018, circular. As per February 12 circular, banks having a negative book value were allowed to allot shares at Re 1. People privy to the development said banks were still expecting the RBI to clear the air pertaining to debt-equity conversion at Re 1. Due to this, the scheduled process of bidding on Saturday could not take off.A bank-executive said, “All legal approvals from the RBI need to be in place including examination of the issue of debt to equity conversion. Unless legal work is done, the bid document cannot be issued.” Notably, the consortium of lenders had said that the expression of interest (EoIs) from bidders would be invited on April 6. The deadline for receiving the bids was set 4 days after opening the bids. Financial daily, Business Standard reported that final date for submission of bids will also be extended as the process has been deferred. “Whenever the EoI is published, four days will be given to interested parties to respond,” the official further added.

The step would mean the consortium holding 50.1 per cent shares in the company.It is to be noted that any delays would further hamper the financial condition of Jet Airways which is flying only one-fifth of its original fleet. The Airline is under humongous pressure from all its stakeholders. The airline’s creditors, including its lessors, have threatened to de-register more planes while the oil marketing companies (OMCs) have started to suspend fuel supplies to the cash strapped airline due to non-payment of their dues. In fact, Indian Oil Corporation had shut the supply on Friday for more than two hours and it was only after the government’s intervention the supply was restored. The pilots have also threatened to go on strike if they are not paid their dues.
