The transition from fossil fuels to renewables is well underway. The pandemic reduced oil demand, causing the oil price to plummet, and oil company share prices with it. Simultaneously, demand for renewable energy investments soared. There’s now an array of energy stocks and funds available. These range from pureplay renewables to energy transition or traditional fossil fuels. Identifying value in ESG investingI like investing in a mixture of individual stocks and funds in my Stocks and Shares ISA. I think funds can offer diversification when my budget is limited. They also save me time trying to evaluate numerous companies. But at the same time, as the transition from oil to renewables continues and the number of individual stocks and funds available has surged, my big question is: do I decide whether to go eco, or traditional — or both?5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…I can actually do both via funds focused on traditional oil firms or buy these companies’ shares direct. Since news of successful vaccines arrived, the oil price has been creeping back up and now oil companies see light at the end of the tunnel. But it’s not just business as usual for them. Many of the oil majors like BP and Shell are transitioning into renewables to put their expertise and access to capital to good use.Investors like me are also demanding much more sustainable routes to investing and ESG investing has brought an influx of funds to meet this need. To begin with, the worry was that renewable funds wouldn’t be able to produce returns as impressive as the ‘sin stock’ funds before them. This is no longer such a concern and with low oil demand last year, many ESG funds outperformed their benchmarks.I think this trend is likely to continue. But green energy mania reached new heights in 2020, and renewables-focused funds now have equities in them that are possibly overvalued. This means consistently achieving high returns could be difficult.Investing in energy stocks through fundsFunds focused purely on oil are few and usually US-based, such as the iShares Oil & Gas Exploration & Production UCITS ETF or SPDR S&P Oil & Gas Exploration & Production ETF. These are clearly much riskier and not environmentally friendly. But for those that believe a much higher oil price is to come, then they could offer an impressive risk-reward ratio.Alternatively, there are funds that incorporate both fossil fuels and renewables via the energy transition itself. Trium ESG Emissions Impact fund is focusing on companies in high emissions sectors that are making an effort to reduce their carbon footprint and improve their transparency. It holds Antofagasta and Centrica.The Gore Street Energy Storage Fund invests in energy storage facilities, including batteries. I also own shares of The Renewables Infrastructure Group, which covers a portfolio of 74 renewable assets covering wind, solar and battery.For balance, I think it’s good to diversify. Owning baskets of stocks with different areas of focus can help hedge against sectors faring badly or overvalued companies. However, for those with a bigger budget and time to manage their portfolio, I think buying individual energy stocks can be rewarding too. And studying the holdings of an ETF can spark ideas for energy stocks to invest in.

Andrew Cohen Architects conceived Page Road House’s iconic sculptural form in dialogue with the landscape and topography of a densely wooded 12-acre site in Lincoln, a close suburb of Boston that has carefully preserved its agrarian character. After commissioning ACA to design the Springstep Center for the Arts, the homeowner sought an equally ambitious and forward-looking design for her home to convey her passion for the performing and visual arts. As the founding director of Springstep, she entertains and hosts fundraising events frequently, so the house needed spaces commodious enough to contain a crowd, while still being an inviting and intimate retreat the rest of the time.Save this picture!© Greg Premru PhotographyRecommended ProductsLouversAccoyaAccoya® Wood for Shutters and LouvresDoorsdormakabaSliding Glass Doors – MUTOWoodEGGEROSB Boards in Highway ChurchThe architects’ strategy was to compose the plan first and then wrap it in a tight skin, so the building’s function is the source of its exuberant form. Spaces are arranged along the interior according to frequency of use and various levels of privacy to break down the 6995-sf space into discrete interlocking volumes. The kitchen and primary living spaces occupy the ground level, with direct access to the terraces and the adjacent landscape. In the living room, floor-to-ceiling windows are set at grade to create a seamless and porous relationship with the landscape. The master bedroom suite is accessed via two separate sets of stairs, neither of which is directly connected to the public spaces to preserve privacy during events. The rest of the house’s program areas are located across a wide landing at the main entry, which offers another layer of privacy from visitors. Placing all of the spaces the residents use most frequently—the kitchen and main living spaces, master bedroom and offices—in easy reach effectively reduces the house’s apparent scale. Strategic cuts in the building skin allow for diagonal views through the house and out to the landscape beyond, thereby drawing relationships between seemingly isolated spaces so multiple areas can be appreciated simultaneously. Save this picture!© Greg Premru PhotographyAlthough the house is sizeable, the architects incorporated several sustainable strategies to reduce the its impact on the environment. A ground source geothermal system supports the house’s heating and cooling requirements. Double-wall assembly with 6” of Icynene insulation combined with a highly reflective CPO roof membrane creates an efficient building envelope. All of the rainwater that falls on the house is returned to the aquifer via a recharge system. Although photovoltaics and solar heat panels were explored, it was determined that the site was too shaded for the system to function optimally.Save this picture!© Greg Premru PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessKew Gardens Hills Library / WORKacArticlesDesign and Virtual Reality Educational Complex / OIII architectenArticles Share Page Road House / Andrew Cohen Architects United States ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/114497/page-road-house-andrew-cohen-architects Clipboard Houses CopyHouses•Lincoln, United States Page Road House / Andrew Cohen ArchitectsSave this projectSavePage Road House / Andrew Cohen Architects “COPY” Projects “COPY” Save this picture!© Greg Premru Photography+ 17 Share Architects: Andrew Cohen Architects Photographs CopyAbout this officeAndrew Cohen ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasLincolnHouses3D ModelingUnited StatesPublished on February 28, 2011Cite: “Page Road House / Andrew Cohen Architects” 28 Feb 2011.

Supporters of safe injection sites in Philadelphia rallied outside this week’s federal hearing. The judge’s ultimate ruling will determine if the proposed “Safehouse” facility to prevent deaths from opioid overdose would violate the federal Controlled Substances Act.Philadelphia has the reputation of being a major heroin haven on the East Coast, with heroin of such high quality that people moved there for that alone. In recent years, with the opiate epidemic steadily getting worse, this reputation grew — and then dropped with the introduction of fentanyl analogs — such as acetylfentanyl, butyrfentanyl, and carfentanil — into the heroin supply. These drugs are dozens to hundreds of times more potent than morphine, and dangerously taint the supply.Nevertheless, people from surrounding counties and states still come to Philadelphia in droves seeking its once-legendary – and now extinct – ”pure fix.”So it’s no surprise that the number of overdoses in Philadelphia has risen to record-breaking numbers. On sidewalks, in convenience store bathrooms, in buses, trains, and even the basements and bedrooms of their parents and partners, addicts are overdosing, dying and leaving wounds in the hearts of their loved ones.Those lucky enough to survive a serious overdose are left changed by the experience. My most serious overdose convinced me that I needed recovery again, relapsing after three years clean. Yet overdoses may not be enough to convince some addicts that they need to seek recovery. Addiction isn’t a rational or reasonable thing – it’s a mental illness that often accompanies other mental illnesses.Harm reduction approachPeople who have experienced addiction or addicts know this — many of us simply don’t understand we have a problem and often don’t know we need help until we’ve reached bottom – the point where people with substance abuse issues hit an emotional, physical, financial or social wall, realizing that we’ve destroyed our lives. It can take months or years. My first bottom came after years of using and drinking; my second came only months after my relapse. Each person is different.Realizing that people may not hit their bottom fast enough to be able to survive addiction, recovery advocates developed ideas that would keep them alive and relatively safe until they decided to seek recovery. In the beginning, this approach took the form of harm reduction education. Recovery advocates and medical professionals educated drug users (addicts or not) in how to use drugs in ways that would keep them as safe and healthy as possible under the circumstances.Advocates championed the use of Narcan shots and nasal spray, eventually getting the medicine to be given out without prescription and free from some pharmacies. In Philadelphia, the city and various nonprofit organizations also give trainings for free. This harm reduction approach helped, and continues to help. However, it isn’t enough. With more and more potent fentanyl analogues being put into the heroin, someone who overdosed could need more Narcan than most advocacy civilians – and even rescue officials – could provide. So the harm reduction approach needed to get more radical.Safe injection sitesIn January 2018, reduction and recovery advocates got the City of Philadelphia to greenlight safe injection sites. While plans were not fully developed for their implementation, it was a time of rejoicing for advocates fighting addiction. Finally, evidence-based tools were starting to be used. Yet people opposed the sites – from non-addicts antagonistic towards addicts to loved ones of addicts and even recovering addicts. The refrain was essentially the same: allow addicts in active addiction to die.Some of these antagonists believe addicts are going to die anyway – and deserve to. They believe addicts are making a choice to use and are “too weak” to stop. The recovering addicts and loved ones of addicts who oppose the sites generally espouse the view that safe injection only delays death and will only empower addicts to continue using.A more scientific approach neededThese arguments are based in a nonscientific, discredited approach that is eugenicist and Social Darwinist in nature – the idea that only the “most fit” biologically of a species can or should survive. This leads to reasoning that addiction is a choice made by addicted people who are inherently too weak to choose recovery. Conversations on addiction, steered by these ideas, can end up stating, directly or indirectly, that “society” is better off without people who are addicts – better off with us dead, rather than alive but using in a controlled and safe way. These arguments are also deeply rooted in the logic of capitalism – that people are worth something only as they function efficiently as working cogs in the profit-making system.We have to reject these incorrect and malicious viewpoints and voice our support for safe injection sites, even if we are not injection drug users. We have to show that addicts — in recovery or not, abstinent or not — have value as human beings. Conversations on addiction have been steered by the devaluation of human life for too long, and too many lives have been lost to death and to jail as a result.Safe injection sites save money but also save lives. I urge people interested in social justice and the basic concept of equality to steer discussions about addition treatment away from malicious viewpoints that degrade human value and toward viewpoints that show that all people have value.

Facebook Twitter Multiple Modes and of Action and Residuals Needed for Effective Weed Control By Andy Eubank – Jan 31, 2018 SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Multiple Modes and of Action and Residuals Needed for Effective Weed Control Multiple-modes-of-action-on-weedsAnother planting season is near and so is another season of strategizing Indiana corn and soybean field weed control and minimizing weed resistance to herbicides. A clean start this spring is the best way for those fields and seeds to minimize fighting with weeds and provide maximum yields.“Weed resistance is an ongoing problem and in Indiana, especially marestail, giant ragweed, waterhemp, boy you guys hit the jackpot with these tough weeds,” says John Foresman, herbicide product lead with Syngenta.He says the best start this spring is a clean start.“Make sure that you have a clean seed bed, whether it’s a burndown program that includes a strong herbicide like Gramoxone, or else tillage. You want to start clean. You want to select products or a tank mix that has multiple modes of action. A lot of people talk about rotating chemistry and so forth, but what’s really important is using multiple modes of action with the applications that you make and using the proper rates.”Foresman says residual herbicides are also a must to maintain clean fields.“Yiou have weeds coming up at planting time or even before planting, like marestail coming up in the fall, and then you get to planting time. Unless you clean those up you’ve got to deal with them, but then you have weeds that will emerge all the way into June, and so you have to have residual. There’s no other option. You have to have residuals because farmers don’t have just one weed in their field. They’ve got a whole number of weeds.For a broad-spectrum program, Foresman runs down the Syngenta 2018 product lineup:Syngenta-herbicides-for-2018 SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleEU Delays Ruling on Bayer-Monsanto Merger, AgainNext articleNPPC Trade Update at Indiana Pork Annual Meeting Andy Eubank

Witthaya Prasongsin/Getty Images(GARDEN GROVE, Calif.) — The suspect in the deadly Southern California stabbing and robbery spree is expected to make his first court appearance Friday afternoon.Zachary Castaneda, 33, will appear for his arraignment at 1:30 p.m. local time. He is currently being held at the Orange County jail in lieu of $1.1 million bail.It was not immediately clear if he had legal representation before his court appearance.Castaneda is accused of killing four people and wounding two others in a string of attacks Wednesday that sprawled across two cities.The violent spree began at 4:09 p.m. in Garden Grove and ended at 6:25 p.m. in Santa Ana, authorities said.During that time, Castaneda allegedly stabbed two people to death in his apartment complex, an armed security guard at a 7-Eleven, and a person outside a Subway, according to Garden Grove Police Lt. Carl Whitney.He is also accused of repeatedly stabbing a woman at a Garden Grove insurance business, Whitney said. She is expected to survive.Three minutes after that attack, Castaneda allegedly stabbed a 44-year-old man at a Chevron Gas Station, nearly severing off his nose, police said. That man is also expected to survive, according to authorities.Police released video surveillance footage of the insurance business assault to show “the speed and viciousness” of the suspect’s actions.All of the victims ranged in age from 25 to 64, officials said.Castaneda allegedly robbed several business in Garden Grove and Santa Ana amid the attacks, police said.Undercover Garden Grove police officers found his vehicle at the 7-Eleven — and when Castaneda exited store allegedly armed with a handgun and knife — he complied with an officer’s order to drop his weapons, police said.He was then taken into custody.Castaneda got the handgun after taking it from the armed security guard, authorities said.Police said investigators were still looking into Castaneda’s motive. They said he “remained violent” throughout the night.Whitney, meanwhile, called the attacks “tragic.”“We don’t want to see tragedies like this happen,” he said. “We’ve seen tragedies like this happen across the United States, but what the good point we can see out of this is that our officers responded quickly, rapidly and were able to take this guy into custody as fast as we could.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
