Governor Shumlin wants Entergy to pay Vermont’s legal expenses

first_imgNorthstar Vermont Yankee,by Anne Galloway, www.vtdigger.org(link is external) April 30, 2011 The Shumlin administration wants Entergy Corp to pay for any legal expenses the state may incur as it defends itself against a lawsuit Entergy initiated against the state two weeks ago.That counterintuitive payment approach is called a ‘billback,’ according to a Department of Public Service official, who assured the Senate Finance Committee on Friday, such legal maneuvers are ‘an age-old tradition.’If the state, for example, was bringing a case in front of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, it could charge Entergy for the cost of hiring experts and lawyers, according to Sarah Hofmann, deputy commissioner of the Department of Public Service. The ‘causer,’ or the entity that caused the need for a legal suit, is liable for the cost, she said.The ‘bill backs’ would be effective immediately if the Legislature adopts the new statutory language as part of H.56, the omnibus energy bill, which was unanimously voted out of committee on Friday. The bill will go to the floor of the Senate early next week.The change in statute would make Entergy Corp. liable for the state’s legal expenses, including responses to public records requests and the preparation of litigation in the case, which the corporation lodged against the state in U.S District Court in Burlington.Entergy alleges that the state went back on its word when the Legislature passed a law in 2006 requiring Entergy to obtain permission from lawmakers on a license extension for Vermont Yankee, which is, under a 2002 memorandum of understanding, set to shut down March 21, 2012. The Louisiana-based nuclear power company’s case is based on the question of pre-emption. Entergy argues in its complaint that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, which approved a new license for the company in March, has pre-emptive authority over state law.Attorney General Bill Sorrell has said the suit could be protracted and potentially costly if it goes all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. CORRECTED Just this week, Sorrell’s office may have lost a data mining case heard by the Supreme Court Justices. Cheryl Hanna, a legal expert and professorwith Vermont Law School, wrote in an opinion piece last week that sheanticipates if Vermont loses the case, in which it defended a new law regulating access to physician records, it will likely cost the state about $1 million.A court would rule on who would pay the damages in the Entergy lawsuit, Hofmann said. And the state, if it loses, could be responsible for not only its own legal costs, but also those of the plaintiff.Sen. Randy Brock, R-Grand Isle-Franklin, asked Hofmann: ‘Is it common that if someone sues us that they charge us legal fees for representing us in that lawsuit?’He put it another way: ‘If a state vehicle runs me over and I sue the state, the state requires me to pay for experts hired by the state to testify against me.’Hofmann replied that ‘It’s not unusual to see a bill back for the cost to the causer.’ At the end of the litigation, the federal judge decides who gets awards for attorneys’ fees and costs.The Vermont Attorney General’s office and Shumlin’s legal counsel Beth Robinson support the change in statute.‘We stand firmly behind the language,’ Robinson said. ‘We think it’s the right thing to do.’  Anne Galloway is editor of vtdigger.orglast_img read more

Devon pension fund opts for multi-factor smart-beta over active mandate

first_imgIts new mandate will require a mix of value, quality and low-volatility strategies, while avoiding single-factor dependency.This should be provided on a fixed-allocation basis rather than a dynamic-allocation approach, with investments global and unhedged.It said interested managers should use widely recognised benchmarks, and that investments should be managed on a long-only basis.Devon Pension Fund said it would only consider managers with a breadth of experience that manage a minimum of £2.5bn in alternative indexation strategies.At the end of June, the fund allocated 60% of assets to listed equity, split 20-40% between active and passive strategies, respectively.A move away from active management had already begun from March 2013, where the fund allocated 23% to active management and 37% to passive.The general use of alternative indexation strategies has grown in recent years, with significant uptake in 2014.European institutional investors are expected to invest as much as €211bn in smart-beta strategies by 2017, according to market intelligence provider Spence Johnson.However, this will be at the expense of both active and passive mandates, with research from State Street Global Advisors (SSgA) showing that 75% of institutional investors see smart beta as a replacement for passive strategies and 64% for active.The pension fund’s latest published report showed it invested with SSgA and UBS Global Asset Management for its passive exposure.It also used Aberdeen Asset Management and the soon-to-be-dismissed Sarasin and Partners for its global active exposure.The fund also has 15% invested in diversified growth funds, managed by Baring Asset Management and Baillie Gifford.In January, the fund said it would cut its equity exposure, as it had overshot its target by £150m.In turn, it moved the assets into infrastructure, investing £40m with Aviva Investors and $50m (€37.2m) with First State.The move away from equities to infrastructure came as the pension fund’s committee acknowledged that it had strayed from its strategic asset allocation, and that its low exposure had failed to generate enough diversification within the fund.However, it still remains 5 percentage points above its targeted equity holdings and 2 points below for infrastructure. The £3bn (€3.6bn) Devon County Council Pension Fund is to allocate £250m to a smart-beta equity strategy, while disinvesting from an active mandate.Launching a tender, the fund said it was seeking to appoint a manager for an alternative indexation equity mandate, made up of a blended strategy.The fund also decided to terminate its mandate with Sarasin and Partners, an investment manager currently operating an active global equity strategy for the scheme.According to committee minutes from September, the termination of the contract will coincide with the launch of the tender for the smart-beta strategy.last_img read more

Russia 2018: Ekweremadu Charges Eagles to Help Heal Wounds of Division

first_imgEkweremadu, who stated this in a goodwill message to the Super Eagles as they prepare to trade tackles with Croatia in their opening qualifying match Saturday, expressed absolute faith in the Gernot Rohr-tutored team.According to him, “Nigeria is more divided today than at any other time in her history. But, for us, football is the tonic that heals old wounds.

HIGHLAND RADIO’S CAR SHOW ‘DID NOT BREACH RULES’

first_imgTHE Broadcasting Authority of Ireland has dismissed speculation that Highland Radio had breached its rules when the station parked two cars outside the venue for yesterday’s oral hearing.Two cars – branded with the Highland Radio logo – were parked in the drop-off zone of the Radisson Hotel in Letterkenny on Monday.The zone is close to the front door of the premises and the cars remained parked there whilst the BAI took oral evidence from both Highland Radio and rivals DLFM. Under BAI rules, companies bidding for radio franchises are banned from displaying logos and branding at venues for oral hearings.However the BAI said that Highland Radio was not in breach of the letter of the regulations as the cars were parked outside the venue.We understand a decision on who should get the 10-year franchise will be taken at the end of May or early June.The new license to broadcast runs for ten years from this September.  HIGHLAND RADIO’S CAR SHOW ‘DID NOT BREACH RULES’ was last modified: April 1st, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BAIDLFMHighland RadioRuleslast_img read more

Stupid Evolution Quote of the Week:  Monkeys Bang Rocks, Invent Culture

first_imgThe venerable University of Cambridge earns this week’s prize for the following statements in a press release today:New evidence of “human” culture among primates23 March 2007Research suggests that stone-banging by South American monkeys could be a socially-learned skillFresh evidence that suggests monkeys can learn skills from each other, in the same manner as humans, has been uncovered by a University of Cambridge researcher.    Dr Antonio Moura, a Brazilian researcher from the Department of Biological Anthropology, has discovered signs that Capuchin monkeys in Brazil bang stones as a signalling device to ward off potential predators.    While not conclusive, his research adds to a mounting body of evidence that suggests other species have something approaching human culture.Some esteemed Cambridge grads of the past, such as James Clerk Maxwell, might have a little fun with this “suggestion.”  He might write a poem on whether the operation is commutative.  Could the converse operation hold as well: i.e., that the faculty and student body appear to be devolving toward monkey culture?The depths of inanity to which Darwinian dogmatists will sink borders on insanity.  Monkey bangs rock.  Shakespeare can’t be far behind.  Will this line of argument fly at Oxford?  (On second thought… Dawkins territory…)    There are two reasons why Darwinists get away with shameless nonsense in the press.  The first is because they have not learned shame.  Normal people, not infected with Delusia academia, should teach them the normal human blushing response.  A good bout of laughter can help.  Saturday Night Live should take this theory and run with it.  Calling all comedians: there’s a gold mine of joke material at Darwin Party Headquarters.    The second reason they get away with nonsense is that the gutless press isn’t doing its job.  Science reporters, like fawning toadies, just gulp down the toad and regurgitate it onto the plate to dish out to the public.  We need a new generation of reporters who understand their role is not to parrot but to ferret.  Fire the current batch and send in some seasoned political reporters to face up to the academics, shove microphones in their faces, and ask questions like:“How do you know that?  Mr. Moura, doesn’t it seem a little silly that rock-banging by monkeys could have anything to do with human culture?  What do you have to say to the majority of people who would disagree with your idea?  Don’t you feel it is a little bit reckless to take such a trivial behavior and extrapolate it onto human beings?  What about crows and parrots and dogs? (03/08/2007, bullets #2, #3).  Don’t they show much more elaborate signaling behavior than Capuchin monkeys?  Didn’t we learn that even ants can teach one another? (01/11/2006, bullet #3).  You wouldn’t suggest that human culture evolved from crows and ants now, would you?  Couldn’t the same reasoning be used to speculate that architecture evolved from beaver dams?  What makes rock-banging stand out as anything unusual in the animal kingdom?  How could your hypothesis be tested?  How could it be falsified?  Have you been fair to other explanations, or debated with scientists who disagree with your “suggestion”?  Isn’t science supposed to be about verification and justification of ideas?  If it is not conclusive, and only a suggestion, why not get to work in the lab until you can state something with more confidence?  Where is this mounting body of evidence you speak of?  Can you produce it so that our research team can see if any of it really does more than just speculate?  Have you, sir, seen the mounting body of evidence that Darwinism is on the decline?  And why, sir, are you spending your time speculating on such things instead of doing science that can make the world a better place?”After this barrage (typical of the way political reporters treat the President), Mr. Moura needs to be put face-to-face on TV with a well-prepared and outspoken Darwin critic who can shoot down every suggestion he makes on scientific grounds, and with a philosopher of science who can express outrage at any attempt to draw such a grandiose extrapolation from such flimsy observations.    Darwinism will slink away silently when the wise and sensible among us stand up to their bluff and demand scientific integrity or else.  Or else what?  Or else a room full of belly laughs.  Reporters, do your homework and come prepared to your next interview with a Darwinist.  Have a long list of hard-hitting questions and, as backup, a box of kazoos and party blowers.(Visited 13 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
