U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Regional Administrator, Gwen Keyes Fleming, recognized the City of Tampa as the recipient of a $400,000 multi-purpose pilot grant and the City of Brooksville, FL as a recipient of a $400,000 assessment grant for cleanup and redevelopment of contaminated properties on Thursday, June 7, 2012. The pilot Multi-Purpose grants, funded by EPA's Brownfields program, will help the recipients to conduct assessments and cleanup activities, and secure funding to eliminate delays in moving from assessment to cleanup. The investments will continue to provide communities with necessary funding to help clean up America's land, boost local economies and create jobs while protecting public health. This program was originally run on City of Tampa Television (CTTV), and was produced by Brian Sullivan

http://www.dtsc.ca.gov/ DTSC brownfield cleanup sets stage for 72-acre Curtis Park Village A February 15 celebration by city and state officials in Sacramento marked a successful toxic soils cleanup that will spark a $31 million construction project and 1,600 jobs on a vacant railroad site near downtown Sacramento. DTSC's remediation effort clears way for one of the city's largest urban infill developments - 530 new residences, seven acres of parks and 259,000 square feet of commercial buildings. The project is expected to generate $2.5 million in annual property taxes. Script: A Railyard Renaissance: Curtis Park Cleanup -- Feb. 15th 2012 Graphic Open: DTSC Success Story SOT of Debbie Raphael - DTSC Governor Brown has said to me on many occasions that the thing that drives him the most crazy are brownfield sites that are undeveloped. Nats of sign being crushed VO: The sign warning people about cancerous chemicals on this property was destroyed. It marks the completion of the Union Pacific Curtis Park Rail yard cleanup. DTSC's oversight during the cleanup ensures that the 72-acre property is now ready for development. SOT of Debbie Raphael - DTSC This property is cleaned up to something called an unrestricted value. What that means is anything can get built on this site from now on. VO: 357,000 cubic yards of contaminated soil had to be removed from the site by rail car. It's taken 9 years to undo 100 years of pollution from industrial use. NATS SOT of Jay Schenirer -- Sacramento City Council I'm really excited that we've gotten rid of the mounds of dirt and that we're going to have something that we can all use and enjoy and it's going to be a real amenity to the neighborhood. SOT of Lauren Hammond -- Former Sacramento City Council Member I want to thank all the mayors, all the council members that voted on this project and I'm talking about from way back. It takes vision and courage to something that other people haven't done. NATS of ceremonial shoveling SOT of Darrell Steinberg -- State Senate President Pro Tem Here we are today and it looks beautiful even undeveloped because you can see what is coming. NATS SOT of Petrovich -- Petrovich Development Company It's thousands of jobs. I think it's a sign of how we're going to come out of this down economy. We'll see buildings coming out of the ground here hopefully by mid twenty thirteen. VO: Plans for new retail outlets and homes are already in the works for Curtis Park. The project is expected to create more than 1,600 construction jobs and bring 600 permanent jobs to the community. With DTSC's help Brownfield sites like this one can be cleaned up for the benefit of the environment, business and the community. SOT of Debbie Raphael - DTSC This site is clean enough to have a day care center. It's clean enough to have people living in homes and gardening. It's clean enough for any use that the community wants to see. END Slate

A funding cut could jeopardize the cleanup and redevelopment of contaminated property sites in Hennepin County. The Hennepin County Environmental Response Fund grant program is set to expire in January. Since the program started in 2001, 290 grants worth a total of $41 million have been awarded to cities, nonprofits, and private developers who use the money to cleanup contaminated sites and then redevelop them. "These are sites that are often just sitting vacant or sitting with dilapidated structures and may sit for years before they're redeveloped because of that additional cost that's involved," said Rosemary Lavin, Hennepin County's assistant director of environmental services. Developer Paul Hyde of Real Estate Recycling is currently working on a plan to redevelop a contaminated property in Brooklyn Center that was formerly the Howe Fertilizer Site at 49th Avenue and Brooklyn Boulevard. The site will require $1.5 million in contamination cleanup before Hyde can build a 60,000 square feet commerical office and warehouse building. Hyde said the project will be in jeopardy if he doesn't get the last round of grant funding this fall. "We're sure worried about it," said Hyde. "Without the Hennepin County grant, it's going to be very difficult to redevelop the site." The money for the grant program comes from a portion of the mortgage registry and deed tax, a 0.02 tax that homebuyers pay with the purchase of their home. Chris Galler, CEO of the Minnesota Association of Realtors, doesn't have a problem with lawmakers' decision not to extend the grant program. Galler believes the tax is an unfair fee for homebuyers at a time when homeownership should be made more affordable. "We just don't think taxing homeowners when they're transacting real estate is the right way to raise it," said Galler. "If they want to raise it, and it's a county wide problem, then it should be a county wide tax, everybody should share in the burden."

Ford Motor Company Executive Chairman William Clay Ford Jr., a 1979 Princeton University alumnus, shared his insights in "The Auto Industry: From Recovery to Revolution," in the 2011 G. S. Beckwith Gilbert '63 Lecture Feb. 15 at the Friend Center for Engineering Education. Ford joined the Ford Motor Company in 1979 as a product planning analyst and held a variety of domestic and international assignments in manufacturing, sales, marketing, product development and finance. He served as chief executive officer before being named executive chairman. A lifelong environmentalist, Ford serves as chairman of the board's Environmental and Public Policy Committee. Under his leadership the company published its first corporate citizenship report outlining the economic, environmental and social impact of its products and operations around the world. In 2004, the company completed the world's largest brownfield reclamation project, the restoration of its Ford Rouge Center in metropolitan Detroit. Ford also championed the Ford Escape Hybrid, the world's first hybrid-electric sport utility vehicle, and the company has launched an aggressive plan to bring a series of electric- and hybrid-powered vehicles to market over the next three years. Additionally, as vice chairman of the Detroit Lions professional football team, Ford led efforts to build a new, environmentally friendly stadium in Detroit that was the site of Super Bowl XL. Through Detroit Lions Charities, he helped develop the Detroit Police Athletic League youth football program into one of the largest in the country. He has initiated a program to give Ford employees two days off with pay annually to help out in their communities, and created the Ford Volunteer Corps to help globalize these efforts. Ford is chairman of the board of the Detroit Economic Club and a member of the Board of Trustees of The Henry Ford, a museum, research center and history attraction in Dearborn, Mich.; the Board of Directors of eBay Inc.; and Business Leaders for Michigan. In addition to his bachelor's degree in history from Princeton, Ford holds a master of science degree in management from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is a former Princeton University trustee and currently serves as a member of the Princeton Varsity Club Advisory Committee. He has served as a volunteer for Annual Giving, Princeton's yearly fundraising campaign, and for the Alumni Schools Committee, which interviews prospective students. The Gilbert lecture was established in 1988 to bring innovative leaders in business, government and the professions to the Princeton campus to discuss their ventures and the insights gained in their careers. This year's lecture is sponsored by the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, the School of Engineering and Applied Science, the Princeton Environmental Institute, Whitman College and the Keller Center for Innovation in Engineering Education.

In preparation for Obama-EPA Regional Administrator Al Armendariz's testimony before the House Energy and Commerce Committee on Wednesday, Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, released his latest video showcasing a number of Obama EPA Regional Administrators longing to impose a green "way of life act" on Americans through the regulatory regime of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In their own words, these Regional Administrators dream of pouring billions of dollars into green energy firms like Solyndra, crucifying American energy producers, and forcing a regulatory agenda to kill coal that will be "painful every step of the way."

Meijer plans to replace the old Redford High School in Northwest Detroit with one of its big-box stores, providing a prime example of demolition with a plan in the Motor City. The former Detroit Public Schools high school's architecture served as a staple of the the Old Redford, Grandmont, Rosedale Park and Brightmoor neighborhoods at 21431 W Grand River Ave since it was built in 1924. It graduated a number of notable national personalities, including George C Scott before it closed in 2007. The current development plan calls for razing the empty 1 million square foot school to make way for a new Meijer big-box store. The $22 million project will feature a retail, grocery and garden center. The Michigan Economic Development Corp provided brownfield tax credits worth $3.3 million from the state and $6.5 million from local government entities. "In that respect it's a good thing there is a redevelopment plan," says Karen Nagher, former executive director of Preservation Wayne who now works consulting for historic redevelopment. "But I wish there would have tried to find a way to put retail and office space in there." A common lament among Metro Detroit's preservation community is that many of the region's historic structures are razed with no plan to redevelop the property, leaving an urban prairie of blighted vacant lots. Some closed Detroit Public Schools buildings with remarkable historic architecture have fallen by the wayside in this way, including the historic Cass Tech building. The redevelopment of the old Redford High School building represents a move toward demolition with a plan for these sorts of structures. Source: Michigan Economic Development Corp and Karen Nagher, former executive director of Preservation Wayne Writer: Jon Zemke ------- THE MUSIC ------- The Requiem Mass in D minor (K. 626) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was composed in Vienna in 1791 and left unfinished at the composer's death on December 5. A completion by Franz Xaver Süssmayr was delivered to Count Franz von Walsegg, who had anonymously commissioned the piece for a requiem Mass to commemorate the February 14 anniversary of his wife's death. It is one of the most enigmatic pieces of music ever composed, mostly because of the myths and controversies surrounding it, especially around how much of the piece was completed by Mozart before his death. The autograph manuscript shows the finished and orchestrated introit in Mozart's hand, as well as detailed drafts of the Kyrie and the sequence Dies Irae as far as the first nine bars of "Lacrimosa", and the offertory. It cannot be shown to what extent Süssmayr may have depended on now lost "scraps of paper" for the remainder; he later claimed the Sanctus and Agnus Dei as his own. Walsegg probably intended to pass the Requiem off as his own composition, as he is known to have done with other works. This plan was frustrated by a public benefit performance for Mozart's widow Constanze. A modern contribution to the mythology is Peter Shaffer's 1979 play Amadeus, in which a mysterious messenger appeared and ordered Mozart to write a requiem mass, giving no explanation for the order. Mozart then came to believe that the piece was meant to be the requiem mass for his own funeral. The Requiem is scored for 2 basset horns in F, 2 bassoons, 2 trumpets in D, 3 trombones (alto, tenor & bass), timpani (2 drums), violins, viola and basso continuo (cello, double bass, and organ). The vocal forces include soprano, contralto, tenor, and bass soloists and a SATB mixed choir. -Harry Arnold Horizon Film / iTVDetroit contact me - email@example.com drones by - zeroXquads.com

03 MAY 2012 525 Beach Street EPA 21-E update: KingCast says "hats off" to Revere City Counselor Ira Novoselsky, the hypocrite who cried wolf when he got his camera smacked down.... but who then smacks reporter's camera! Here is the seminal journal entry on these shenanigans. http://christopher-king.blogspot.com/2012/04/kingcast-and-clifford-pisano-nail.html His hat is off because he just basically assaulted me with it as he covered my camera to avoid being put on video. Now he is on video, basically assaulting me. How g__ d___ stupid can you get, LOL. Well apparently stupid is as stupid does, when he was trespassing he got his camera knocked out of his hands and placed bogus charges on some black kid who was found Not Guilty. Moreover, I am investigating an allegation that a little old lady at 50 Walnut Ave filed a complaint against him for pushing her to the ground. Basically Ira Novoselsky is royally pissed-off at Yours Truly because I aired his dirty laundry -- and that of his pals over at Revere and Chelsea Neighborhood Developers. These guys get away with bloody murder because they are in tight with Deval Patrick. Ahhh, but I digress...... Dear Miles, this is what I need you to do immediately: Have Mayor Rizzo compel the Developers to place the original test results on file in your office. This way the taxpayers can acknowledge the fact that the zoning application was fraudulent because it failed to acknowledge the fact that CERCLA, EPA 21-E testing had already been completed months prior to the November Site Plan Review and zoning applications.

Providence, RI -- Fifteen regional and local planning projects will receive approximately $1 million under the Statewide Planning Program's Planning Challenge Grant Program, Governor Chafee announced Friday, February 23, at a public ceremony in the Atrium Gallery of the Department of Administration. Selected from 33 proposals requesting over $2.3 million, the 15 projects slated for funding come from a variety of project sponsors and propose innovative solutions to address land use and transportation issues faced by Rhode Island communities. "These Challenge Grants represent a creative use of Federal funds to help Rhode Island cities and towns to plan for their future growth and development. They include projects of statewide significance, such as the Warwick Station Development District, to projects more local in scale, such as the Woonsocket Main Street Livability Plan, and the joint collaboration between Pawtucket and Central Falls. Through this partnership with our local governments and non profit agencies, we are working together to advance both state and local initiatives in transportation, land use, and economic development," Governor Chafee said.

For more information, see the Creating a DRS cluster and Using DRS Clusters to Manage Resources sections of the vSphere Resource Management Guide at http://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/vsphere-esxi-vcenter-server-pubs.html vSphere HA clusters enable a collection of ESXi hosts to work together so that, as a group, they provide higher levels of availability for virtual machines than each ESXi host can provide individually. When you plan the creation and usage of a new vSphere HA cluster, the options you select affect the way that cluster responds to failures of hosts or virtual machines. For more information, see the Creating and Using vSphere HA Clusters section of the vSphere Resource Management Guide at http://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/vsphere-esxi-vcenter-server-pubs.html Note: You can create a cluster without a special license. However, you need a license to enable a cluster for vSphere DRS (or vSphere HA). Note: For best viewing results, ensure that the 720p HD setting is enabled and view in full screen mode.

In this video, Managing Principal Analyst Marianne O'Malley discusses the LAO's report "The 2012-13 Budget: Unwinding Redevelopment." On February 1, 2012, all redevelopment agencies in California were dissolved and the process for unwinding their financial affairs began. Given the scope of these agencies' funds, assets, and financial obligations, the unwinding process will take time. This report reviews the history of RDAs, the events that led to their dissolution, and the process communities are using to resolve their financial obligations. The report recommends the Legislature amend the redevelopment dissolution legislation to address timing issues, clarify the treatment of pass--through payments, and address key concerns of redevelopment bond investors.

Intercontinental London Park Lane Hotel 5 June 2012 President Benigno S. Aquino III attended his first business meeting with the executives of Philippine Associated Smelting and Refining Corporation (PASAR) and Glencore International on the second day of his Official Visit to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Glencore is a majority owner of PASAR which operates the only copper smelter and refinery in the Philippines. For 25 years, it has been producing electrolytic copper cathode for export that was registered with the London Metal Exchange (LME) as Grade A Copper in 1984. The PASAR plant complex occupies 80 hectares inside the Leyte Industrial Development Estate. The smelter processes 720,000 tons of copper concentrate a year, or 60,000 tons a month, and the refinery has an annual capacity of 215,000 tons of cathodes. In the meeting, PASAR and Glencore executives informed the President of their plan to invest $500-600 million to expand smelting capacity and build a power plant to support their operations. Glencore International is headquartered in Baar, Switzerland and is a leading producer and marketer of commodities, with worldwide activities in the marketing of metals and minerals, energy products and agricultural products, as well as the production, refinement, processing, storage and transport of these products. It employs about 3,000 people in its global marketing operations in some 50 offices in over 40 countries. In its industrial operations, Glencore employs over 58,000 people in 33 countries. ***
