Currie, General Manager of Pasadena Water and Power, said that the Metropolitan Water District will discuss future funding of these rebates at the next board meeting on May 26.The SoCal Water $mart program offers financial incentives in the form of rebates to home and business owners who choose to remove turf, install water efficient toilets, clothes washers and other appliances.The state’s water troubles prompted Gov. Jerry Brown to issue an executive order that required a 25 percent reduction in water usage through February 28, 2016 and directing the California Department of Water Resources to launch a program to replace 50 million square feet of lawn and ornamental turf with drought-tolerant landscapes.Since the Governor’s declaration, interest in the Water $mart program has increased, and as a result, requests for rebates have surpassed the available funding.As of May 12, Pasadena customers of the Metropolitan Water District are encouraged to continue submitting applications for water rebates through the SoCal Water$mart program, but are warned that funding of those rebates is on a first-come, first served basis, based on availability of funding. Applications made prior to May 12 will be honored and are not affected by this first-come, first served policy.More information is available on the Pasadena Water and Power web site, and citizens are encouraged to check the SoCal Water $mart program’s web site (http://socalwatersmart.com) for updates.

first_imgThe Liza Unity FPSO will be spread moored at a water depth of 1600m with 20 Cabral 512 deepwater mooring lines with a minimum breaking strength of 12,300kN SBM Offshore Liza Unity FPSO. (Credit: SBM Offshore) Lankhorst Offshore has secured a contract from SBM Offshore to supply the deepwater mooring lines for the FPSO Liza Unity for ExxonMobil’s Liza Phase 2 oil field development offshore Guyana.The FPSO Liza Unity, based on SBM Offshore’s Fast4Ward FPSO design, will be spread moored at a water depth of 1,600m with 20 Cabral 512 deepwater mooring lines with a minimum breaking strength of 12,300kN.Each mooring line measuring 2,320m in length, totaling 46,400m, will feature a chain top segment, polyester rope middle segment and chain bottom segment, connected to a suction pile anchor during deployment .According to Lankhorst, the ABS class approved Cabral 512 rope construction is equipped with a specially designed filter, averting entry of sand while the mooring lines are pre-laid on the seabed ahead of the FPSO arriving on station.Cabral 512 ropes will be manufactured at Lankhorst Offshore’s factoryThe Cabral 512 ropes will be manufactured at the company’s factory in Viana do Castelo, Portugal.The company has developed a ‘standardised’ deepwater mooring model for the two Liza FPSOs to reduce lead times.Lankhorst Offshore sales director Neil Schulz said: “We fully support SBM Offshore’s Fast4Ward FPSO design approach. By introducing a standardised manufacturing model combined with reusable shipping reels, we too are playing our part in reducing the capital costs of deepwater mooring and increasing sustainability.”Additionally to decreasing the number of shipping reels by loading longer mooring line lengths or multiple segments on each reel, Lankhorst has also unveiled reusable shipping rope reels/cradles which can be returned to its manufacturing facilities.Lankhorst stated that these measures allow a more sustainable supply of deepwater mooring lines.The Liza Unity mooring lines will reuse the 16 shipping reels returned from the Liza Destiny mooring, the company added.last_img read more

But the Thunder have lost their stride as of late and will take a four-game losing skid to Toronto when they face the Raptors on Friday. The No. 2 team in the East has put together back-to-back wins, but will be without All-Star guard Kyle Lowry, who will miss his second consecutive game with a sprained right ankle. Donovan Mitchell scored a game-high 34 points Thursday, but he couldn’t knock down the shot the Jazz needed most.In the final moments versus the Hawks, Mitchell missed a 22-foot 3-point shot that would have tied the game with 1.8 seconds left. Instead, Atlanta spoiled Utah’s five-game win streak with a 117-114 win. Mitchell finished shooting 15 of 32 from the field and 2 of 6 from 3-point range. All of the Jazz’s starters were in double figures with Ricky Rubio (17 points) trailing Mitchell. The Jazz held an eight-point lead more than halfway through the quarter after this dish from Rubio, but couldn’t hold on to their advantage.

Wayne Ellington led the Pistons with 23 points.Duds of the NightThe Timberwolves starting five all scored in the double-digits, but they needed some help from their bench, which never came. There was only one player to score 10 or more points in Gorgui Dieng while the rest of the subs struggled. Keita Bates-Diop and Jerryd Bayless scored just two points each.The Mavericks didn’t get much help from their big man including Maximilian Kleber, who tallied just five points.

Fantasy Football Injury Updates: Julio Jones, T.Y. Hilton, Adam Thielen, will shake up Week 14 start ’em, sit ’em calls

Posted On Aug 14 2020 by

first_imgJuJu has been so disappointing anyway that his absence probably isn’t costing his fantasy owners much. The biggest beneficiary has been James Washington, who’s shown himself a viable deep-ball target and upside-laden FLEX play with Devlin Hodges slinging it.Golden Tate injury updateTate (concussion) was ruled out Friday for Sunday’s game after sustaining a concussion in Week 12. The Giants don’t play until Monday night in Week 14 against the Eagles, so Tate’s status will probably be updated later in the week than usual.A vulnerable Philadelphia secondary would be a good matchup for Tate to come back to. Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard are both possible WR3s with Tate out. If all three are healthy, they can still all be used at least as FLEX options. Julio Jones, T.Y. Hilton and Adam Thielen all fit the bill as top-10 fantasy WRs heading into Week 14, except all three are battling injuries that could hurt fantasy owners immensely in the fantasy playoffs. That’s not even to mention the injuries to JuJu Smith-Schuster and Golden Tate that also have the WR rankings in flux and could leave you scouring the waiver wire for a sleeper. We have the latest news and updates on those five wideouts below.For news on Dalvin Cook, click here; for the latest on injured TEs Gerald Everett, David Njoku, Evan Engram, and Austin Hooper, click here; for updates on banged-up RBs Marlon Mack, James Conner, and more, go here. Follow us on Twitter for more news and updates @SN_Fantasy. WEEK 14 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerJulio Jones injury updateFalcons head coach Dan Quinn had already shot down the idea that Jones could be shut down for the season, and Monday, Quinn said Jones’ (shoulder) availability for Week 14 is “trending upward.” He added that Jones would’ve had a better chance of playing in Week 13 if Atlanta had played on Sunday instead of Thanksgiving.Sounds like if we don’t see Julio this week, it will be Week 15 at the latest with how his recovery has gone. Of course, you start Jones the second he’s back on the field; more interesting are Calvin Ridley, Christian Blake and Russell Gage if Jones remains out. Ridley is a must-start, but Blake and Gage are a flip-a-coin FLEX decision with some upside in a pass-heavy offense — on Thanksgiving, both had viable PPR days, though Gage proved to be slightly more valuable with a touchdown.WEEK 14: Top Waiver PickupsIs T.Y. Hilton playing in Week 13?Hilton (calf) made a return in Week 12 before missing Week 13, as the same injury apparently worsened. Colts head coach Frank Reich said Monday that he’s “hopeful” Hilton will return this season. Indy plays in Tampa Bay at 1 p.m. ET in Week 14.”Hopeful” doesn’t sound confident and seems to suggest Hilton is a little further away than this week. Tampa has been torched by WRs all year, meaning that if Hilton is out, you can consider Zach Pascal and even Marcus Johnson as possible WR3/FLEX plays. Coming off catching seven balls on 10 targets for 109 yards, Pascal would be the preferred play and should be picked up off waivers if available.WEEK 14 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endAdam Thielen injury newsThielen (hamstring) practiced all of Week 13 before being ruled out Sunday ahead of Minnesota’s Monday night game. There wasn’t a further update provided on his injury following the Vikings’ loss. MORE WEEK 14:Waiver pickups | FAAB planning | Stock watch | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff SOSThielen’s trajectory shows the trickiness of hamstring injuries, as the practices apparently weren’t enough to avoid a setback that caused him to miss out Monday. He seems likely to play in Week 14, but obviously that’s just a guess right now. If Thielen remains out, tight end Kyle Rudolph will remain the biggest beneficiary heading into Week 14’s matchup with the Lions.Will JuJu Smith-Schuster play Week 14?Smith-Schuster (knee) missed Week 13 after being ruled out on Friday. He hasn’t played since Week 11, and he hasn’t practiced in that time span, either. Pittsburgh plays in the late-afternoon slot at Arizona in Week 14.WEEK 14 DFS LINEUPS:DK Cash | DK GPP | FD Cash | FD GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPPlast_img read more
