Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) today announced a $5 million grant for the Vermont National Guard that could result in the largest solar energy project in the state and one of the largest in New England.“This project will not only help the Vermont National Guard reduce its electric bill and carbon footprint, but will be a major step forward in moving our state toward a greener economy which relies more and more on sustainable energy,” Sanders said.“There is little doubt in my mind that in the years to come the energy mix in this state will be very different than it is today – with a far greater reliance on sustainable energy. I hope that this project becomes a model for what can be done and a catalyst for further action,” he added.Sanders is the chairman of the new Senate Subcommittee on Green Jobs and New Economy. He secured the $5 million in the 2009 Department of Defense appropriations bill.Sanders thanked Major General Michael Dubie, the Vermont adjutant general, for the guard’s support of the project and for its “willingness to help make the Vermont National Guard a leader in this state in sustainable energy.”Although the project is still in the design phase, it is likely that the centerpiece will be a large array of solar photovoltaic cells at the Vermont Air Guard’s facilities at the Burlington Airport to generate a significant amount of the facility’s electric power.“As President Obama has made clear, and as many political leaders have stressed for decades, we must fundamentally transform our energy system. We need to move aggressively to energy efficiency so we use less fossil fuel, and we need to develop such sustainable energies as wind, solar, geothermal, biomass and others,” Sanders said.“As we make that energy transition we will not only improve our geopolitical position in the world and reverse global warming, we also will create, over a period of time, millions of good-paying jobs throughout our country.”
Leaders assess how the world might or might not change. Whether it’s new non-traditional competition, cutting-edge technologies, evolving business models, or changing member behaviors, developing successful strategies today relies on decision-makers opening their minds to the possibilities and then choosing a path. Are you thinking creatively enough about how the world might change around you and how to ensure your credit union does not get left behind?Consider the disruptions in financial services today. Like Blockbuster above, should strategy focus on behemoths like Wal-Mart and Apple, or are there greater threats in newer business models like M-Pesa, SoFi, and The Lending Club? Perhaps the greater threats and opportunities are evolving technologies. All of this is happening on top of traditional competition, regulation, and the economy.Good strategy begins with careful consideration of possible threats and opportunities. Identifying the future you’re planning for is an important first step. With the future uncertain, even the best-laid plans are likely to run into unanticipated challenges. It can be useful, then, to ask, “What if the strategies we pursue are based on expectations that don’t come to pass?” continue reading » 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
Usually, when a team’s starting quarterback goes down with an injury, there is a big drop in production when the backup comes in.Unfortunately for the Wisconsin Badgers football team, this is not the case for San Diego State head coach Chuck Long. With starter Kevin O’Connell out for a few weeks after undergoing surgery, Darren Mougey will get a chance that he has wanted from day one of training camp, freshman year — a chance to start — and for him Saturday cannot come soon enough.Mougey, a sophomore from Scottsdale, Ariz., will make the first start of his collegiate career against the Badgers. After redshirting his freshman year and backing up O’Connell for much of 2005 and the start of this season, Mougey will finally get the opportunity to display the talent that earned him SuperPrep All-American honors, and he will do it in front of a hostile Camp Randall crowd.”I’m really excited for the opportunity,” Mougey said at an Aztec press conference Tuesday. “I’ve been here for a couple years now and gotten some playing experience, but this is my first real test. I’m excited for my first test to be a big test against (one of) the best in Wisconsin. I’m excited to prove to my teammates, myself and this community that I can play at this level.”In his most recent performance, Mougey proved not only that he could play at the D-I, but that he could dominate as well. Mougey came on for the injured O’Connell midway through the third quarter with his team trailing 27-3 against Texas-El Paso and led his team on three consecutive scoring drives, capping two with touchdown runs of his own. Despite the furious comeback, the Aztecs fell short 34-27. For the game, Mougey completed 12 of 16 passes for 178 yards and ran for another 41. Against a Wisconsin team that has struggled defending mobile quarterbacks, coaches expect big things out of Mougey.”We think it’s an advantage to have a quarterback that can move around — that can do some damage with his legs as well as his arm, and Darren can do that,” Aztecs head coach Chuck Long said in a phone interview.While his running ability may leave the Badgers linebackers bewildered, it’s his size and athletic ability that sets him apart. At 6-6, 230 pounds, Mougey is the complete package. In fact after O’Connell was named the starter in training camp — albeit in a tight race — and Mougey remained the backup, Long was concerned that Mougey’s running ability, size and athleticism were going to waste. Coach Long tried him out as a wide receiver.”He’s so athletic that we feel like we need to get him on the field somehow, someway,” Long said. “You know we want to put our best players and athletes out there and he was one of them. He was a top-22 athlete for us on the team, so we did [just] that. But since he’s been a quarterback, those days are over now.”Although the experiment didn’t last long, it shows just how valuable Mougey is to the Aztecs. Before thoughts of trying Mougey at wideout trickled into coach Long’s head, the sophomore was putting up a heck of a fight for the starting role.”Darren was really sharp all the way through training camp so much so that I felt like ‘OK, we have two guys here … and we had to name a starter in Kevin O’Connell, but we felt like we had a 1A and a 1B as opposed to a one and a two,” Long said. “That’s how close Darren was, as far as being behind Kevin in terms of production and what he did during training camp.”Over the past two weeks the gap between the two Aztec quarterbacks — if there ever was one — has all but disappeared. Since Mougey took over the starting role, he has the opportunity to get the reps in practice that he could not get as the backup. The impressive thing about it, according to Long, is that he has picked up the system and commanded the huddle very well in such a short time starting.For now, coach Long is just pleased that he doesn’t have to worry about keeping a phenomenal athlete on the sidelines.The only thing left on Mougey’s agenda now is to guide his team to victory over a heavily favored Wisconsin team.”It would be huge for this team and this program [to beat the Badgers],” Mougey said. “These types of games put us on the map — get us some recognition and respect.”

The three Greek teams that will compete in this year’s Europa League Group Stages found out their opponents in today’s draw. Olympiacos was paired with APOEL, Young Boys, and Astana. PAOK will play Fiorentina, Slovan Liberec, and Qarabag while Panathinaikos will face off against Ajax, Standard Liege, and Celta.As expected, Olympiacos was given the “easiest” group in the Europa League due to their seed in pot 1. The Greek Champions will play in Group B against Young Boys (SUI), Astana (KAZ), and Cypriot Champions APOEL. Without a doubt, if Olympiacos finds their European form of the previous seasons they will not only progress to the Round of 32 but will win the group. APOEL will have the “first say” in qualifying out of the groups along with Olympiacos. The Greek Champions will play their first match away to Young Boys on September 15th. For Olympiacos’ full schedule click here.PAOK will be content with today’s draw as they were placed in Group J along with Fiorentina (ITA), Slovan Liberec (CZE), and Qarabaq (AZE). PAOK was seeded in pot 2 and was expected to be paired with a “major” European Club, in this case Fiorentina. The Italians will be the favorites to advance as group winners with PAOK having the upper-hand to progress in second. However, Slovan Liberec and Qarabag will prove to be tough opponents if PAOK underestimates the two sides. The Dikefalos tou Vora will host Fiorentina on the first matchday on September 15th. For PAOK’s full schedule click here.Seeded in pot 4, Panathinaikos received the “toughest” draw from the three Greek Teams. The Prasini will play in Group G along with Ajax (NED), Celta (ESP), and Standard Liege (BEL). The group looks to be very even on paper with Ajax deemed favorites to win the group. Standard Liege will be a tough opponent with their vast European experience, but a good Panathinaikos can overcome the Belgian side. The Trifylli was unfortunate to draw Celta from the 3rd pot, looking as the “toughest” team from the other possible opponents. Although they are not a “big” name in European football they play in one of Europe’s top leagues and will also be a contender to progress from the Group Stages. Panathinaikos will play Ajax in Athens for the opening game in Group G. For Panathinaikos’ full schedule click here. Source: AGONAsport.com (Facebook – Instagram)TweetPinShare0 Shares
About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Chelsea boss Lampard: We’re learning to win without Hazardby Paul Vegas2 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea boss Frank Lampard says his team is learning to play without Eden Hazard.Eden Hazard cost Real Madrid around £89m in the summer but that fee could exceed £150m if he goes on to be the success he was at Stamford Bridge.“Whether I became manager or not, Eden Hazard was not going to be replaced by anyone anywhere near similar to what he did for this club,” Lampard said. “I don’t think it was possible, unless you went to the absolute top, with the [Lionel] Messis and [Cristiano] Ronaldos, because I think Eden pushes them around that bracket.“The next question is: how do we change that? Of course, we’ve seen a bit of youth come through with different ideas. I work consistently on the team as a group that we can create chances from different areas of the pitch. It’s great that a left-back [Marcus Alonso] scored inside the box at the weekend, for instance. So, it will be hard to replace [Hazard] — it’s impossible — but as a team we can find a way and, hopefully, we’re working towards that.”
Urban Meyer Basement FloodedOhio State head coach Urban Meyer has a pretty decent contingency plan heading into the 2015-2016 season, given the fact that he has three quarterbacks capable of winning him another national championship. But he didn’t have much of a contingency plan for his basement after his sump pump broke this past weekend. Meyer’s basement flooded with what appears to be at least a foot of water after yet another rainstorm in Ohio. His wife, Shelley, tweeted out a photo of the damage – both before and after it was drained. Busted Coverage tipped us off:@mariawsyx6 @wsyx6 @SlingerWSYX6 @basementdoctor Darn! Too late for me, Maria. Mine flooded last night. #sumpumprobs pic.twitter.com/bRUW17BgBj— Shelley Meyer (@spinnershells) June 21, 2015Just home from baseball in Indy-the water AND the carpet AND the drywall are all gone. #sumpumpfail. #2muchrain pic.twitter.com/IWgOE446Xv— Shelley Meyer (@spinnershells) June 22, 2015In reality, it was probably time for an upgrade on some of the furniture down there anyway. Luckily, we’re pretty sure Meyer can afford to pay someone to fix it all.
