On June 25, 2013, the world of rowing lost a legend. Please share your reflections below.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Norfolk District is seeking public input on a Virginia Beach City Government proposal to mechanically dredge a Saw Pen Point neighborhood tributary to provide residents with navigation access. The Schilling Point SSD project is located in a tributary to the Lynnhaven River’s Western Branch, adjacent to the Saw Pen Point neighborhood surrounded by homes along Saw Pen Point Trail, Bridgehampton Lane, Witch Point Trail and Schilling Point in Virginia Beach, Virginia.A 692-foot-long city spur channel with a 25-foot bottom width is proposed to be dredged to a maximum depth of -4.5 feet mean low water (MLW) and would connect to the existing channel in the Lynnhaven River’s Western Branch.A main 490-foot-long Special Service District channel would run from the city channel to SSD North Spur and SSD South Spur channels. The main SSD channel would have a maximum bottom width of 25 feet, reducing to a 20-foot bottom width as it approaches the neighborhood, and would be dredged to a maximum depth of -4.5 feet MLW.The SSD North Spur would be 470 feet long with a 15-foot bottom width, and the SSD South Spur would be 286 feet long with a 15-foot bottom – individual access basins will be dredged as part of this proposal. These SSD channels would be dredged to a maximum -4.5-foot depth and MLW.The proposal also includes dredging nine individual access basins for homeowners to access the dredged channels. These areas are proposed to be dredged to a maximum depth of -4.5 feet MLW.The applicant has proposed to dredge 9,583 cubic yards of material from 88,383 square feet of impact area.
Share StumbleUpon Brexit has continued to take hold of British politics, with Ladbrokes Coral reporting that odds have shortened on a potential Theresa May departure in May 2019.With only 36 days until the UK is due to formally leave the European Union (EU), MPs are still struggling to gauge any clear idea as to what will actually happen when 29 March eventually arrives.Matthew Shaddick, Head of Political Betting at Ladbrokes Coral commented on the trends: “The main impact on the markets has been for a move on an early general election; 2019 into 6/4 from 7/4 and, in particular, May 2019 into 4/1.”Upcoming local and bi-elections, due to take place on 2 May, will act as suitable tests for MPs who are wishing to stand in a General Election, which could possibly explain the influx of votes placed for May 2019.It follows the announcement that a further three MPs have defected from the Conservative party to join the newly-formed Independent Group, citing Brexit dissatisfaction as a primary reason.Anna Soubrey, Sarah Wollaston and Heidi Allen have joined the eight other Labour MPs as part of the Independent Group, taking its membership to 11.The formation of the new political party has, surprisingly, not had much of an effect upon whether punters believe that Brexit negotiations will go ahead. Anna Soubrey, the MP for Broxtowe, cited the “Government’s disastrous handling of Brexit” as the “final straw” in her decision to depart from the Conservative party. Soubrey stated: “Following the EU referendum of 2016, no genuine effort was made to build a cross party, let alone a national consensus to deliver Brexit.“Instead of seeking to heal the divisions or to tackle the underlying causes of Brexit, the priority was to draw up ‘red lines’. The 48 per cent were not only sidelined, they were alienated.”It is with a heavy heart I have today resigned from the Conservative Party. pic.twitter.com/wzPUB84w5Z— Anna Soubry MP (@Anna_Soubry) February 20, 2019Following Labour’s recent anti-semitism backlash, many punters – according to Shaddick – may feel that an early 2019 general election would be a suitable time for Conservatives to try gain support from disenfranchised Labour supporters.Shaddick continued: “We’re also seeing money for Any Other Party to win most seats in that election, now being backed at an amazingly low 20/1 and Chuka Umunna is now into 66/1 to be next PM.”It is likely that the outcome of May’s Brussels negotiations yesterday may impact the market further, and their implications could possibly result in more defections EU research agency demands urgent action on loot box consumer safeguards July 29, 2020 Submit Share GVC absorbs retail shocks as business recalibrates for critical H2 trading August 13, 2020 Related Articles GVC ‘surprised’ at widening of HMRC’s Turkey investigation July 21, 2020
