Remediation Plan

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) — Freedom Industries has submitted it’s remediation plan for the site of the leak that happened in January.

The MCHM and PPH leak into the Elk River led to a no use ban for thousands of West Virginia American Water customers in nine counties.

The plan, developed by Pennsylvania-based Civil & Environmental Consultants, addresses the environmental conditions at the spill site.

According to a press release from the WVDEP, the plan includes a summary of water quality sampling and remedial measures that Freedom Industries has already implemented at the spill site. The plan also provides a schedule of activities, including site characterization and remediation of impacted soils and groundwater, which will begin once tank removal on the property’s northern end, where much of the contamination occurred, is complete.

Tank 396, which leaked the chemicals, is located on the northern end of the Freedom site, according to the DEP. Preliminary information has indicated that the primary flow path of the chemicals from Tank 396 was to the north, where a culvert pipe and cobble fill provided the transport mechanism from the secondary containment area to the Elk River.

It is noted in the plan that remedial options described are preliminary and “presumptive” in nature and can change based on information obtained as part of the site characterization. According to the plan, “Despite these variables, it is important to note that the remedial options ultimately selected will be designed to achieve the overall objective of remediating the site to eliminate current and future threats to human health and the environment related to the MCHM release.”

Freedom Industries will submit a final remedial investigation report once enough information is available to clearly identify the extent of environmental impacts at the site.

Research that resulted in the first stem cells that are pluripotentthose that have the potential to differentiate into almost any cell in the bodywill be the backdrop for a discussion about trends in regulation in the field of regenerative medicine at the DIA 2014 50th Annual Meeting, June 15 to 19 in San Diego.

Chaired by Shinji Miyake, professor of clinical research for the Keio University School of Medicine in Japan, the session Pioneering Regenerative Medicine: Trends in Regulations for New Therapy will introduce the worlds first clinical research of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell products, conducted in Japan, and review updated regulatory guidance to bring regenerative medicine to patients who need healthy tissue or organs. The session will be held June 16 at 8:30 a.m. in the San Diego Convention Center.

iPS cells are stem cells that can be generated directly from adult cells. These cells can multiply indefinitely and represent a single source of cells, such as heart, neural, pancreatic and liver, that can be used to replace damaged cells.

In 2006, Japanese physician and researcher Shinya Yamanaka led a team to generate iPS cells from adult mouse tissue using gene therapy. This work led to a Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2012 for the discovery that mature cells can be reprogrammed to become pluripotent.

We are honored to host pioneers of this unique field of medicine at the DIA Annual Meeting to share their experiences in the planning of the first clinical research of iPS cell productswhich have the ability to enhance research worldwide, said Barbara L. Kunz, DIA global chief executive. Their expert knowledge of issues and solutions in the application of the regenerative therapies will benefit all who advocate for and drive innovative medicine.

The session will also feature a presentation about the application of iPS cells to retinal diseases by Masayo Takahashi, project leader for the RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology in Japan, along with a European Medicines Agency (EMA) presentation by Dariusz Sladowski, researcher and member of the Committee for Advanced Therapies at EMA.

East Liberty lost 300 businesses in the early 1960s, starting with the neighborhood’s initial decline. But the city’s effort to stop the bleeding was actually the coup de grace — Penn Circle.

It was designed to ring a pedestrian mall that theoretically would have competed for attention with the suburban malls that were drawing people away from the city. But it proved to be a one-way choke hold to the inner core businesses that had hung on.

East Liberty has seen a reversal of fortune in the last 15 years and has businesses lining up to get in. Last week the city brought back the circle’s original street names. The work was completed Thursday.

Penn Circle South and East and Collins Street south of East Liberty Boulevard will become part of Centre Avenue. Penn Circle North will join Station Street, extending it several blocks. Penn Circle West will become part of North and South Euclid avenues.

City council last year approved the change so that addresses for new businesses could be added without duplications. City planner Justin Miller said there have been duplications and confusion because of four Penn Circle directions besides Penn Avenue. The section of Collins being absorbed by Centre had half the addresses the city is trying to phase out.

“We’re seeing a lot of development and needed to come up with a handful of new addresses,” he said, adding that a return to the original street grid and names was a priority in the East Liberty neighborhood plan. “It seemed like an opportune time rather than give new developments old addresses that we’d have to correct later.”

The process of returning the grid to East Liberty started a decade ago, when Penn Avenue was converted back to a two-way street going through East Liberty, connecting with the two-way of Penn through Garfield, Shadyside and Larimer. Two years ago, Penn Circle South and East were reconverted to two-way traffic in part to enhance access to the new Target store.

Mr. Miller said street sign conversion costs a “fairly minimal” $13,000 because they were made in the public works sign shop. The city is contracting for installation of signs on mast arms associated with traffic signals.

Ninety buildings, mostly businesses and apartment complexes, will be affected by the address changes and were notified at the start of the month.

Ocracoke, N.C. Because of budget constraints, the National Park Service won’t staff the Cape Hatteras National Seashore beaches with lifeguards this summer. The move has angered Outer Banks residents and left tourists wondering if they should swim there.

“We need the lifeguards here for this island,” said Dylan Bennick, who worked for the Park Service last summer as a lifeguard. “Lifeguards not only create feeling of being safe, but they do provide an environment where people can go to the beach and be safe.”

Fifteen lifeguards watched over three beaches in the Cape Hatteras National Seashore Ocracoke, Buxton and Coquina last year and were credited with 49 rescues, according to Park Service data. There wasn’t a single drowning within the guarded beach areas, which saw more than 31,800 visitors between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

“We got a call on the radio that a dad and his son were caught in a rip current,” Bennick said of a July 3 rescue. “When we got to them, it was just their noses above the water.”

Park Service spokeswoman Cyndy Holda said four to six people drown on the Outer Banks outside of guarded areas in an average summer.

A lifelong surfer, Bennick said rip currents are the greatest threat along the North Carolina coast. That’s why, he said, his value as a lifeguard wasn’t in the water as much as it was on the beach.

“Telling people what the scenario is and how to deal with it,” he said. “If you don’t know what to do, it can kill you.”

The Park Service will save $75,000 by cutting the lifeguard staff, Holda said. She said the agency is looking at possibly hiring contract lifeguards, but any decision is weeks away.

Sundae Horn, who has lived on Ocracoke Island for 22 years, said lifeguards are part of the lifeblood of the area and its tourism-based economy.

“As a family beach destination, people want to come here, and they might choose to go somewhere else if they don’t have lifeguards,” Horn said. “If we have a year without lifeguards, there will be more tragedies.”

Worshippers carry a cross in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre on Good Friday during Holy Week, in Jerusalem’s Old City.Reuters

As priests are abducted in Crimea, churches burn in Sudan, and American pastors waste away in North Korean prisons, how long will it take this administration to name a new ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom?

With the president visiting Saudi Arabia and the first lady visiting China earlier this month, April would have been a prime opportunity to send a message that America values religious freedom, even in the presence of necessary allies with dismal reputations in this regard. This isnt a Democratic, Republican, liberal, or conservative issue; its a matter of common decency and of human rights.

The ambassadorship has been vacant for six months and it has been nearly two months since President Obama stated at the National Prayer Breakfast that he looks forward to nominating our next ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom.

I have personally witnessed the shocking truth of the presidents related statement that “around the world, freedom of religion is under threat.”

– Recently, I was in the West Bank where earlier this year in the village of Deir Istiya, attackers set fire to the local mosque and spray painted hate messages on its walls.

– The same day I was leaving the region, radical Islamists fired at least 40 rockets into the towns of their Jewish neighbors.

– A few weeks ago, as worshippers were gathering in St. Pauls Roman Catholic Church in Nigeria, Boko Haram a militant group trying to overthrow the government and create an Islamic state, attacked the church and killed over 45 parishioners. One of the survivors lost her husband and child in the attack and when interviewed all she could say was, we saw hell.

– In the mainly Buddhist nation of Burma, the number of displaced Rohingya Muslims has climbed to more than 150,000; others have been killed at the hands of Buddhist mobs, and all of this has happened since Burma began making its move toward political reform.

— In the Central African Republic, Christian militias are now responding with unspeakable violence against the mainly Muslim Seleka rebels who notoriously terrorized Christians in the country last year, and on a recent Sunday morning in Mombasa, Kenya, extremists killed 2 Christian church leaders as they sat in the pews of Joy Jesus Church.

FORT LAUDERDALE Thousands of migrating sharks swam close to South Florida beaches over the past few days, prompting beach closures and sending two people to the hospital with minor bites.

The beach at John D. MacArthur Beach State Park remained closed Monday after hundreds of sharks were sighted near swimming areas, many chasing fish “very close to shore,” said Mara Burger, spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Gulf Stream Park’s beach was closed and reopened three times on Sunday, as lifeguards ordered swimmers from the water at the sight of sharks.

Off Delray Beach on Saturday afternoon, Kurt Hoffman was dragging his arm in the water from his kite board when he suddenly felt pressure on his arm.

“It was less than a second,” he said. “It was a hit and a release. It felt like a bear trap. I pulled myself in pretty much like a rocket. And I pulled my feet up because I didn’t want to get bitten again. All I see is blood running down my arm. I yelled ‘Shark bite! A shark bit me!’”

Hoffman, whose company The Kite Doctor repairs damaged kiteboarding kites, suffered 15 to 18 puncture wounds across a seven-inch span. At St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, he was given antibiotics, in addition to treatment for his wound, because sharks’ mouths team with bacteria.

On Friday, a 9-year-old boy on a surfboard or boogie board was bitten on his foot and ankle, said Lt. Anthony Giarrusso, of North Palm Beach Fire Rescue. He was taken to St. Mary’s for treatment.

Every spring, a huge number of blacktip and spinner sharks migrate from their winter homes off Broward and Palm Beach counties north, with many going as far as the Carolinas.

“These two bites sound very much like what you’d expect around this time in South Florida,” said Stephen Kajiura, associate professor of biology at Florida Atlantic University, who gathers data on the migration by air on flights between the Boca and Jupiter inlets. “We have large numbers of sharks that are migrating through here.”

Blacktips and spinners reach a maximum length of six feet, not large enough to see a human being as prey. When they bite someone, Kajiura said, it is typically a case of mistaken identity in murky water.

“If you see a flash in the water, a hand or a foot, it looks like a little fish,” he said. “They’re fish eaters, and they’re going after all these little baitfish, it’s not a surprise that we’re seeing this this time of year.”

Gateshead based 72 Engineer Regiment marched through the town to celebrate its freedom of the borough

Parade for Freedom Regiment at Trinity Square, Gateshead

They trooped proudly through the streets of Gateshead in their last ever march to celebrate the freedom of the borough.

Led by a full military band, the 72 Engineer Regiment, made up of dedicated volunteers, proudly snaked their way from the towns Shipley Art Gallery to the new Trinity Square development.

Based at Napier Armoury near Gateshead Central Library, 72 Engineer Regiment was awarded the Freedom of Gateshead in 2011 for its close ties to the area. Traditionally, regiments awarded freedom status exercise their right to parade through their town every three years.

Spectators lined the route in support of the regiment and cheered them on.

Mayor of Gateshead, Coun Jack Graham, said: We are firm supporters of our armed forces in Gateshead. Members of the 72 Engineer Regiment work in some of the most dangerous and difficult situations imaginable, to ensure the safety of our country. We want each and every one of them to know that the people of the North East appreciate that work.

The regiment disbands later this year as part of the Governments restructure of the British Army. The regiments Gateshead headquarters will be lost but its 103 Squadron which meets at Debdon Gardens in Heaton, Newcastle, will continue, although it will become part of 21 Engineer Regiment based in Ripon in North Yorkshire.

This new regiment will include both regular soldiers and reservists, making it a hybrid force which Defence Secretary Philip Hammond favours in his vision for a reformed military.
