Today, the last few panels were mounted on the roof of St. David’s Episcopal Church’s nine-story garage. The system is sized to produce 200 MWh per year, which will provide electricity for a day school, coffee shop, homeless resource center, and off-site classes for AISD.The idea for the project, which is the first of its size in downtown Austin, was first discussed by church leaders 10 years ago. “We had a window of opportunity that opened with a newly created pilot program by Austin Energy, federal rebates, low interest rates, and the advancement of technology. Everything came together so well with the help of Austin Energy and Meridian Solar, we were finally able to carry it out,” said St. David’s Parish Administrator Terry Nathan.In the past, a project of this size was too risky. Downtown networks have been set up to only allow electricity to flow in, creating better protection for densely populated areas. An initial concern of the project was that on the days when more solar energy was generated than needed, the excess would try and pump back into the grid causing significant problems. With this project in mind, Meridian Solar helped create a sophisticated control system that permits the solar array to be connected to the utility’s electrical service, all while prohibiting the excess generation from back feeding into the downtown network.St. David’s solar panel project is thelargest in downtown Austin“This achievement is the latest chapter in St. Davids’ long history of contributions of the Austin community,” said Austin City Council Member Chris Riley. “By helping resolve difficult issues related to our electric grid, St. David’s has moved us closer to our goals for local solar generation, and has demonstrated once again the value of its longtime partnership with the City.”Beyond the obvious benefit of saving on energy costs (St. David’s also houses a day school, coffee shop, homeless resource center, and off-site classes for AISD), the solar panel project reflects St. David’s values on protecting the environment and conserving resources. St. David’s is a certified GreenFaith Sanctuary, houses and maintains a certified Wildlife Habitat in the middle of downtown, is a City of Austin Green Business Partner (Platinum level); and winner of the 2012 Keep Austin Beautiful Award in the category of Recycling and Waste Reduction.St. David’s Rector, the Rev. David Boyd, shares his excitement about the project, “Through our solar energy project, we are fulfilling God’s call to be stewards of creation. In addition, as we save significant money on our utility costs, those resources enable us to fulfill other aspects of the Gospel as we care for those in the Austin community, including our homeless brothers and sisters and local service agencies.”About St. David’s Episcopal Church: St. David’s, established in 1848, has approximately 2,400 members and offers seven services each Sunday and prayer services during the week. The church, which occupies an entire city block in downtown Austin, supports the Austin community by serving homeless neighbors, providing grants to local non-profits, and organizing volunteers to support local projects like Habitat for Humanity and Wildfire Relief efforts.

By Gary Truitt – Aug 13, 2015 The reduced blending of ethanol into the nation’s fuel supply that is being mandated by the EPA will actually lead to more air pollution, according to a recent study. That’s right the EPA is actually doing more harm to the environment than good.In a recent study by the Energy Resources Center at the University of Illinois in Chicago, A proposal by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to change ethanol blending rules would significantly increase carbon emissions to the equivalent of adding nearly one million more passenger vehicles on the road. The findings come in the wake of proposed rules by the EPA that call for a reduction of the volume of ethanol blended in gasoline as mandated by the Renewable Fuel Standard. If the rules are adopted as proposed, a total of 17.5 billion gallons of ethanol would be blended with gasoline by 2016, 3.75 billion fewer gallons than originally mandated by Congress. The peer-reviewed analysis was conducted using the GREET Model—Greenhouse gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy use in Transportation—according to the Illinois Corn Growers Association. As part of the analysis, carbon emissions related to the planting, growing, harvesting, transportation and production of corn into ethanol were compared to that of oil recovery and production.

The homeownership among those reports fluctuates from 63.8% to 66.9%. “The Census Bureau reports the margin of error for the [Housing Vacancy Survey] at the 90% confidence level. By adding and subtracting the margin of error from the estimate, we can create a confidence interval in which there is a 90% chance that the true value for the population lies within the interval,” the report states. “The smaller the sample, the larger the uncertainty.” Additionally, the report says that some of the biggest differences in the Housing Vacancy Survey do not correspond with decreases and increases in the American Community Survey homeownership rate. Urban said the confidence interval on the American Community Survey is smaller because of the large sample size, which is why it is used as Urban’s “benchmark” for homeownership.“Measuring the homeownership rate requires balancing the frequency of the estimate and the level of uncertainty you are willing to tolerate,” the report says. Although it can be difficult to track, the Census report revealed that minority homeownership rate rose to 48.6% during Q4 2019—a year-over-year increase of 0.8 percentage points. The latest figure is the highest it’s been since Q3 2011 (48.9%). This increase is higher than the gain in the overall U.S. homeownership rate, which rose 0.3 percentage points to 65.1% in Q4 2019. The Hispanic homeownership rate gained the most during the quarter—rising 1.2 percentage points to 48.1%African-American homeownership rose to 44.6% during Q4 2019. The report states this is the largest quarterly gain since Q1 2017.

In light of this, the committee directed the Member Secretary of Delhi State Legal Services Authority (DSLSA) to forward the resolution of the committee to the Registrar General of the Delhi High Court, so that the requisite judicial order can be sought. In today’s meeting, Mr Sandeep Goel, Director General (Prisons), informed the committee that all the prison authorities have strictly complied with the previous orders of the committee, which has led to effective control in limiting the COVID19 contagion in prisons. It was also highlighted that adequate medical care and special diet is being provided to Ms Safoora Zargar and other pregnant women who are in judicial custody. The committee was further informed that prison authorities have already transferred 260 prisoners from Tihar to Mandoli and Rohini prisons, in compliance with the previous orders of the committee. Moreover, DG Prisons submitted that isolation wards have been created in order to prevent the intermingling of new entrants with other inmates. In addition to this, the new prisoners are also thermally screened and medically examined.After considering these submissions, the committee decided to transfer 100 more prisoners from Tihar Jail to Mandoli Jail so that prison administration can implement social distancing amongst the inmates of all three jail complexes. While informing the committee that as of May 05, 3,573 UTPa and convicts have been released on interim bail or parole or remission of sentence, the DG Prisons also submitted that the principle of social distancing are being strictly followed and common areas which are frequented by the inmates like bathing area, kitchen and jail telephone area are being regularly cleaned and sanitised using appropriate disinfectant. While expressing its satisfaction with the compliance shown by the DG Prisons, the committee further directed the jail administration to ensure immediate release of UTPs on receipt of bail orders from the court and to ensure their safe transit to their respective homes. For the said safe transit, the prison authorities have to take necessary steps. Next Story
Becky Perlow/ABC News(NEW YORK) — Amid the closure of restaurants and restrictions on nursing homes, veterinary practices are also starting to feel the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.One clinic in Maryland is taking steps to slow the spread of the virus by offering its clients curbside check-in to keep both its staff and its human clients safe and healthy.“There’s no way to be able to see a dog (or) cat from home,” explained Laila Bolsteins, a vet technician at the Laytonsville Veterinary Practice in Montgomery County, Maryland.“So the best we can do is see the animal without the people present, just to reduce some of that human contact,” she said.The clinic instituted the new protocol on Tuesday, instructing its clients to call or text when they arrive. Veterinary staffers then meet the animal’s owner at their car and bring the animal inside, where, Bolsteins said, the appointment continues on as normal.Well, almost normal.“Hello?” asked Dr. Claire Godwin as she began to examine a small black and white Schnauzer on her exam table.“Hello!” responded a deep, scratchy voice from a cell phone speaker sitting a few inches away. The voice belonged to Donald Mowbray, who was sitting just outside the building in his silver sedan.“Hi Mr. Mowbray, how are you?” asked Dr. Goodwin, as she began to inspect the dog’s ears and teeth.“Fine, Dr. Godwin. It’s good to hear from you,” responded Mowbray over the phone.Bolsteins said that having pet owners speak to the doctors while they wait outside keeps them apprised during the examination, which helps them feel like they’re in the room with their pet.“[They] can talk through any issues they might be having, or why they are here for the appointment … as well as any after-appointment thoughts, if they need any refills on medication or if they need any other appointments scheduled,” said Bolsteins.Mowbray, who at 82 years old is at a higher risk of contracting COVID-19, said he is impressed that the veterinary practice is working hard to keep him safe.And because “we’re not in with the doctor,” said Mowbray, that allows the staff members to keep themselves safe too.Officials at the Centers for Disease Control said they had not received any reports of pets or other animals contracting the COVID-19 virus, but cautioned that further research is necessary to understand how animals could be affected.“Out of an abundance of caution, it is recommended that those ill with COVID-19 limit contact with animals until more information is known about the virus,” the AVMA posted on its website. “Have another member of your household take care of walking, feeding, and playing with your pet. If you have a service animal or you must care for your pet, then wear a facemask; don’t share food, kiss, or hug them; and wash your hands before and after any contact with them.”To protect themselves and their furry clients, the Maryland clinic’s staff is taking steps to limit cross-contamination. But just like doctors and nurses who treat humans, staffers there are running into equipment supply issues.“We are trying to be much less wasteful, while still being cautious of not spreading germs,” explained Bolsteins.”So we tried to switch up which sprays we’re using, like bleach, and then specific cleaners for the cages.”“And we try to waste a little less in terms of masks for humans. We try to label them, write our name on them, so we can keep our own little personal stash of things that are safe to use,” she added. “It’s just been something to keep in the back of our minds that we don’t have necessarily an unlimited amount of resources like we have had in the past.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
