Gel Tech has an EPA approved Fire-Ice solution; a retardant which works to cut flames and cool hot spots.  Fletcher Air has the type of plane needed to get the solution up and over and into those spots which are proving too challenging for usual methods of fighting fires.  Minister Dorsett said it is far too dangerous to send heavy equipment and fire crews into the area which they now plan to target by air with the Fire Ice.The Minister  said it is long past due for life to return to usual for Jubilee Gardens, businesses affected along Harold Road and the students and faculty of Acquinas College.   It was a week ago yesterday that the fire ignited and was fanned by nearly five days of gale force winds, creating billowing smoke which was seen for miles.#MagneticMediaNews #JubileeGardensdumpfire #JubileeGardens #NassauDumpFirelast_img read more

first_imgJavier Hernandez confirmed he is enjoying his football again after West Ham grinded out a 3-2 win over Crystal Palace.Hernandez was once again on the scorer’s sheet as the Hammers romped to a third consecutive victory.The former United striker has struggled to impress since his £16million move in July 2017, but he recently dispelled rumours of a likely exit.He said: “I’m trying my best – I’m enjoying playing football, that’s what I love most and thankfully the points and goals are coming as well. Hopefully, this run keeps going.“Getting the three points was the most important thing and we must keep going now. We have a full week until our next game against Fulham and that’s a good thing as we can recover properly and work very hard ahead of that one.”declan rice, england, West ham UnitedReport: England’s Rice gets death threats George Patchias – September 9, 2019 England International Declan Rice has received death threats.Rice a one time Ireland International, switched allegiances only this year.

House Clears Defense Bill with Mostly Republican Support

first_imgThe House on Wednesday passed a fiscal 2017 defense authorization bill that despite two days of debate over dozens of amendments was little changed from the version passed in committee.Most significantly, the defense policy bill retains a budget maneuver that would allocate $18 billion in overseas contingency operations account (OCO) funds for base budget items not requested by the administration. The funds are designated for training, new weapons and facilities improvements desired by the service chiefs but left out of the Pentagon’s budget request.That gambit, which would result in funding for overseas operations to run out at the end of April, was one reason only 40 Democrats supported the bill, which passed 277-147. Adam Smith (D-Wash.), the ranking member on the Armed Services Committee, opposed the legislation after criticizing the bill’s approach as “a fiscal path to nowhere,” reported CQ Roll Call.Armed Services Chairman Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) defended the budget move, pointing to the military’s urgent readiness shortfalls.“Just think about what the alternative is: ‘No, we’re not going to help troops now, because we’re not sure where the money is going to come from next year or in five years or in 10 years,’” Thornberry said. “But in the meantime, while we’re not sure about all of that … more people stand in danger of losing their lives.”The authorization bill passed by the Senate Armed Services Committee last week does not adopt the House’s funding plan. That version is scheduled to go to the Senate floor next week.Democrats who voted against the bill took issue with a number of provisions beyond its use of OCO funds to evade the statutory spending caps, including the measure’s restrictions on closing the detention facility at Guantánamo Bay. An amendment by Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) to remove the bill’s prohibitions on the closure of the prison was rejected by the chamber.Democrats also objected to a maneuver by the House Rules Committee to drop language from the bill requiring women to register for the Selective Service System, and to a provision critics say would allow federal contractors to gain religious exemptions to an executive order barring discrimination based on sexual orientation or identity. Smith said those points of contention prompted him to vote against the legislation, reported Military Times. Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more
