Former premier targets two TV journalists with sexist tweet

Another is vice-president of the National Council of the Republic. And the third is a member of the parliamentary commission for security and intelligence services.

Planned 2020 shutdown for Davis-Besse nuclear plant raises questions concerning site’s cleanup

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Toledo Blade:It’s back to the drawing board for FirstEnergy Corp. and its subsidiary, FirstEnergy Solutions, now that a federal bankruptcy judge has struck down an important part of the utility company’s proposed restructuring plan.The plan attempted to free the parent company of liability for mounting losses for the division of the firm that controls FirstEnergy’s unprofitable coal-fired and nuclear power plants in Ohio and Pennsylvania, including the Davis-Besse nuclear plant in Ottawa County.FirstEnergy Solutions, which has been assigned to take on the debt and operations of those plants, responded by saying it expects to submit a revised disclosure statement for its reorganization plan. The filing will be with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Akron overseeing its Chapter 11 restructuring.FirstEnergy Solutions also wants to assure Ohio and Pennsylvania residents that Thursday’s ruling by Judge Alan Koschik has no impact on the company’s operations or its ability to continue delivering safe and reliable energy.That’s good news for Davis-Besse’s 700-employee workforce and the Benton-Carroll-Salem Local School District that has relied on property tax revenue generated by the plant since it went online 42 years ago, on April 22, 1977. But the long-term outlook for that plant and others managed by FirstEnergy Solutions remains hazy at best. Davis-Besse remains set to close for good no later than May 31, 2020, unless a buyer or a bailout emerges.Critics from both parties have been fiercely determined to let the situation play out on its own without a bailout or market reforms, some claiming such efforts are acts of socialism.More: Davis-Besse remains in limbo after bankruptcy judge strikes down FirstEnergy plan Planned 2020 shutdown for Davis-Besse nuclear plant raises questions concerning site’s cleanuplast_img read more

Matthey Hayden reveals MS Dhoni’s reaction when he first saw the Mongoose bat

first_imgImage Courtesy: FPJ/Getty/The HinduAdvertisement wsNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vsbixk7gpWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre Eb3l( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) s0zs9Would you ever consider trying this?😱7Can your students do this? 🌚c6Roller skating! Powered by Firework The famous ‘Mongoose Bat’ entered the global cricket scene with creating a huge uproar. The bat with a shorter blade and longer handle, wielded by none other than the former Aussie hall of fame Matthey Hayden, was an object of desire for many fans. The former Chennai Super Kings stalwart was ruthless against bowlers with the bat, however, it earned a little slack from a fellow cricketer, and it was none other than Mahendra Singh Dhoni!Advertisement Image Courtesy: FPJ/Getty/The HinduWith the absence of cricket action in the COVID-19 lock down, many current and former cricketers are taking to social media to engage with the fans. In a recent interview with anchor Rupa Ramani, Matthew Hayden recalled his Indian Premier League days, revealed the reaction he got when first using the mongoose bat from his captain.“I will give you anything you want in life, to not use this bat. Please do not use this bat,” Mahi had said to Hayden after seeing the mongoose, the 48 year old said in the interview session. Check it out below-Advertisement Dhoni’s negative reaction to the mongoose came when Hayden started using it in the 2010 IPL season. The bat, with its 43% longer handle and 33% shorter blade made it lethal for aggressive batting.However, the former Aussie opening batsman had defended the mongoose against Dhoni’s scepticism, saying, “I am using this bat for practice for about a year and a half and when it hits the middle of the bat it goes 20 meters further.”CSK, who lifted their third IPL trophy in 2010, saw a spectacular batting performance from Hayden wielding the mongoose, who scored 346 runs in that season.“The mongoose product was a step in the right direction and it was a brave and courageous decision to use it and for a couple of times when I used I just loved it,” Hayden added.Even though the bat had gained a huge amount of popularity a decade ago, it was ineffective in defensive play, and following Hayden’s retirement, the mongoose became an extinct choice for batsman.If you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out Also follow India’s biggest arm wrestling tournament at ProPanja.comAlso read-You won’t believe MS Dhoni’s brand new lockdown look!Ian Chappell: India are well equipped to handle Australian conditions!
