first_imgUPDATE 11:20 AM: The full “Burn The Witch” single has been released! Listen/Watch here.It may not be much, but at least it’s something.Two days after completely clearing out their social media accounts and website, Radiohead has begun preparations for the announcement of their new album. The band has started the process with a brief clip, thematically falling in line with the “Burn The Witch” motif that was published on those leaflets last weekend. While little details are available, it seems increasingly likely that “Burn The Witch” will be the title of the new release, if not a song or major component of the album. Especially with this new video…Watch below:last_img read more

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Washington Examiner:India’s lack of water will drive the need for solar and wind energy more than concerns over climate change will, according to a report released Tuesday.More than 80 percent of the subcontinent’s electricity comes from power plants that require freshwater cooling, which presents a problem since a lack of water was the prime culprit for some power plants shutting down over the last five years, according to the World Resources Institute, a nonpartisan environmental think tank in Washington.The plants include both coal and nuclear generators, called thermal plants because of the heat they produce to make electricity. “Thermal power plants have been forced to shut down due to inaccessibility of cooling water, losing tens of terawatt-hours of electricity generation in recent years,” the report said.The report is the first comprehensive study of how access to water is affecting India’s energy needs. India lost about 14 terawatt-hours of power generation because of water shortages in 2016, which canceled out “more than 20 percent of growth in the country’s total electricity generation from 2015,” according to the report.The scenario will only grow worse as India’s economy grows and the demand for fossil fuels and nuclear power increase, putting utilities and industries in a fight for water. One of the ways for India to avoid the increased water scarcity is to meet its aggressive goals for building photovoltaic solar panels and wind turbines, the report recommends to the Indian government.“Water consumption from India’s thermal power generation rose steadily every year between 2011 and 2016 but would stay below its 2016 level by 2027 if the country’s most ambitious renewable goals are successfully achieved,” the report stated.More: Green Energy Can Help Solve India’s Water Woes Green Energy Can Help Solve India’s Water Woeslast_img read more

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York CHAPTER I:AROUND THE WORLDHere are some things everyone should know about global warming (all reports guaranteed true):In Europe, the bears are confused. It’s too warm to hibernate at their normal time, and all the berries are gone. Where the bears will find food, and what they’ll do with their spare time if warm weather persists, is anybody’s guess.Butterflies are moving north, from Italy all the way to Finland. If you happen to live in Helsinki and have just spent a fortune on down vests and large quantities of alcoholic beverages for a long, dark winter, butterflies can be quite disconcerting.The flowers are also bewildered—many blooming during Europe’s increasingly warm winters (which seem like early spring to them). Forsythia is blooming several months early in alpine valleys in Austria.In the Rockies, ski resorts are making contingency plans to move to higher elevations, where there’s actually some dependable snow. Some resorts have already lobbied the U.S. government for new leases on federal land at higher altitudes.On a positive note, global warming is nothing but good news for cockroaches! They thrive in warmer weather, so we can expect them to reproduce more frequently during the year, and more of them will survive the new, shorter winters. (Same goes for fleas and ticks, by the way.)CHAPTER II:IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOODIs global warming coming to your neighborhood? Look for possible clues:A. While walking your dog in January you start to sneeze and your eyes begin to itch. Is that really a field of ragweed your dog is peeing in?B. Your local NFL team has shed its hot helmets and pads and is now wearing shorts and T-shirts and playing in the brand new NTFL: the National Touch Football League. Their stadium has been completely air-conditioned.C. Canadian travel ads appear in your local newspaper, offering “Yukon Ice-Skating Vacations”—a tour of the last three naturally frozen ponds in North America.CHAPTER III:TAKE ACTION!Here’s what you can do about global warming:Politically:Write a letter expressing your concerns to President Obama, your senator and your congressman. This will make you feel better, but will accomplish absolutely nothing.Ironically, some say our only hope may be Texas, an epicenter of global warming. If Texas has six months of 110-degree heat and its low-lying cities (i.e. Galveston and Corpus Christi) vanish into the Gulf of Mexico, that may get some attention from Texas Gov. Rick Perry. Then again, maybe not.Personally:1. Build a large wooden boat. Collect a male and a female of your favorite species.2. Buy retirement property in the “New Sun Belt” while prices are still low. (This includes North Dakota, Montana, parts of Idaho, Alaska and northern Maine.)3. Check out emerging investment opportunities: Roach Motel is clearly one product poised to set new sales records. And Wall Street is excited about earnings from companies that make SPF 400 sunscreen products, as well as the rumor that Warren Buffett has bought the two remaining companies in America that still make large hats.4. Start a branch of the GWDC (Global Warming Defense Corps) on your block. You’ll learn basic survival skills, like “Xtreme grilling”—including recipes for simple meals to cook on the hood of your car or on concrete sidewalks.Note: Experts will also teach you which strategies and weapons are effective against hordes of hungry, confused European bears.Global warming is here. It’s time for all of us to adapt and evolve.last_img read more

first_imgCUNA ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr CUNA recommended additional amendments to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) transaction coverage thresholds that would further relieve unnecessary burdens for credit unions. CUNA filed an initial comment letter on the thresholds in June, and since then the CFPB has published data in several forms on HMDA reporters.“CUNA supports HMDA’s mission and its mortgage reporting requirements, but its objectives should be balanced by an appropriately tailored regulation… The CFPB has repeatedly acknowledged that credit unions maintained sound credit practices through the economic crisis and did not engage in the practices that led to the crash of the housing market,” the letter reads. “Nevertheless, the HMDA rule has disproportionately burdened credit unions, due to their finite resources, despite no evidence of past wrongful conduct.”Specifically, CUNA recommends:Increasing the closed-end mortgage loan threshold for required HMDA reporting to 500 loans in each of the prior two years. Barring the adoption of a 500-closed end mortgage loan threshold, the CFPB should finalize the proposed 100 loan threshold at a minimum to exempt credit unions with small mortgage lending portfolios from HMDA reporting; andcenter_img continue reading »last_img read more

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York The Jones Beach fireworks show on July 4th is back for another year—and organizers urge Long Islanders to arrive early for the dazzling Independence Day celebration.The Astoria Bank-sponsored show went on a seven-year hiatus starting in 2008 due to New York State budgetary woes, but returned to the South Shore’s most famous beach last year. More than 140,000 people attended last year’s show.Here are seven things you need to know about this year’s Jones Beach fireworks show.1) WHAT TIME IS THE JULY 4TH FIREWORKS SHOW AT JONES BEACH?The Jones Beach fireworks show begins at 9:30 p.m. Monday, July 4th. George Gorman, deputy regional director of New York State Parks for the Long Island Region, advised revelers to arrive early in order to avoid long lines entering the beach. Traffic toward Jones Beach should spike around 6 p.m., organizers said. State police will divert traffic away from Jones Beach if parking lots fill to capacity. Parking along the shoulder is prohibited, Gorman said.2) CAN I WALK ON?Sure. You can also travel by bike, if you’re into that. Plenty of people choose to walk or bike along the Cedar Creek County Park path to Jones Beach State Park instead of sitting in traffic. The path is about five miles long. Cedar Creek is on Merrick Road in Seaford.3) HOW MUCH DOES THE SHOW COST?Drivers will be charged a $10 special event fee. The usual parking fee will change to a “special event” fee at 4 p.m. Monday. New York State’s seasonal Empire Pass will be accepted.4) HOW LONG IS THE SHOW?The Jones Beach fireworks show will last 30 minutes, officials said. New Jersey-based Garden State Fireworks will conduct the firework display. This is the second-consecutive year that the company won a bid to dazzle the night sky.5) HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE EXPECTED TO SHOW UP?Gorman estimates that this year’s show will attract upwards of 100,000 people. The parks department estimates that attendance could be lower than last year due to the holiday falling on a Monday. Still, Jones Beach could see as many as 200,000 people throughout the day Monday.6) WHAT CAN’T I BRING WITH ME?The obvious items are prohibited from the park. They include: fireworks (including sparklers), kites, drugs, balloons, weapons, Frisbees, skateboards, scooters, rollerblades and balloons. Only one 12-ounce alcoholic beverage is permitted per person over 21 years old.7) WHERE ELSE CAN I SEE THE SHOW?There are alternative parks along Nassau County’s south shore where people elect to take in the show. Two hot spots are Wantagh Park and nearby Cedar Creek Park. The county does not charge a parking fee after 4 p.m. For a fee, spectators can also watch the show from boats leaving from Captree and Freeport.last_img read more
