Colne Estuary Project Kicks Off

first_imgThe Environment Agency started this week the construction works on a major extension to Essex Wildlife Trust’s Fingringhoe Wick Nature Reserve, on the Colne estuary.The estuary has national and international designations due to its conservation importance and has recently been included in the Marine Conservation Zone designation.The project, which is a partnership between the Trust and the Agency, will see 22 hectares of new intertidal habitat created by breaching the existing seawall – allowing the tide to enter the site. The habitat will be a mix of saltmarsh, mudflat and saline lagoon, with a further 1.5 hectares of new reedbed.Andy May, Conservation Manager for Essex Wildlife Trust, said: “This is a very exciting project, which will make much-loved Fingringhoe Wick even better for wildlife and people. We are really looking forward to working in partnership again with the Environment Agency to bring this important work to fruition.”Over the next four months new seawalls will be built to the north and south of the proposed intertidal habitat and it is hoped the breach will be created in the autumn.[mappress mapid=”20515″]last_img read more

Everton doing ‘more and more’ to sign player – Club waiting…

first_imgThat’s according to Il Mattino, who cover the midfielder’s future yet again today as speculation about a move to Goodison Park continues to ramp up.The Brazilian midfielder has been linked with a move to Goodison Park since January when the Blues were said to have made a bid for him.Obviously, the transfer didn’t happen, but there has been a constant stream of speculation that they would return this summer as Carlo Ancelotti plots a rebuild on Merseyside.Those rumours have picked up over the last week, with reports claiming Allan is the ‘express wish’ for Ancelotti this summer and that Everton had even upped their bid to €38m to try and secure his signature.That rumour came courtesy of Il Mattino – who were being cited by several Italian outlets – but they provide a different outlook today.According to them, Everton are doing ‘more and more’ to sign Allan this summer but are yet to actually make an official bid.Embed from Getty ImagesThat is something Napoli are waiting for so they can ‘start negotiating’ with the Blues about a potential transfer.This has been backed up by Italian journalist Giuseppe Cannella, who had this to say when discussing Allan’s future on Marte Sport Live, relayed by Area Napoli.“Allan? He is valued by Carlo Ancelotti, Everton’s current coach.”“Can he go for 30 million? As they say, sell and repent. Between the fee and how much he earns in wages, he’ll go.”That’s all that either has to offer, but the sentiment is clear, Everton want him, and it’s increasingly likely he’ll leave this summer.For what price remains to be seen. Everton aren’t awash with cash this summer, and while Napoli seem keen to sell, Aurelio de Laurentiis is not a man who offers up discounts on his players.Indeed, we’ve already seen reports he wants as much as €40m for Allan this summer, which is a price Everton are unlikely to want to pay.It’ll be down to Marcel Brands, who has a history of bringing prices down, to reduce that fee and get Ancelotti the midfielder his team desperately needs.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy Game is AddictiveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoCoworking Space | Search AdsThe cost of shared office in Hong Kong might surprise youCoworking Space | Search AdsUndo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題UndoStanChart by CNBC CatalystDigitization in Banks Is No Longer About Efficiency, but Business Resilience.

Puerto Rican march in D.C. protests hurricane relief effort

first_imgABC News(WASHINGTON) — Protesters marched on Washington D.C.’s National Mall on Sunday morning to draw attention to the situation in hurricane-stricken Puerto Rico. “The Unity for Puerto Rico March” featured politicians as well as boldface names, including Lin-Manuel Miranda, whose agenda was to turn a spotlight on the devastated island territory, and work to update the 1920 law called the Jones Act, which mandates that American ships distribute all its goods. Representative Luis Gutierrez of Illinois said Puerto Rico had been neglected, which he called “one of the gravest injustices that I have seen” since he came to Washington as a congressman.Then he took shots directly at President Trump.The president recently unveiled a hurricane aid package that secures $44 billion in aid, a figure that many lawmakers said was too low.He criticized Trump for failing to serve his country in the military, like so many Puerto Ricans do.“We have a president of the United States who on four occasion … said, ‘My foot hurts, I cannot serve,’” he said. “But he was able to take those feet to every golf course all over the world and walk on them.”The congressman was referring to how Trump received four student deferments from serving in the Vietnam War.During the presidential campaign, Trump told ABC News chief global affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz that during the war he “had a minor medical deferment for feet, for a bone spur of the foot, which was minor.”Gutierrez went on to say how Trump has no right to disparage Puerto Ricans, who he said are being shortchanged in relief shipments of food, supplies and medicine.“Well, let me just say to the President of the United States each and every time an airplane showed up in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, you filled it with Puerto Ricans and they said ‘Presente!’” he said.Sunday’s march included protesters young and old who proudly raised the island territory’s red, white and blue flag while snaking through the U.S. capital, singing and chanting in unison: “What do we want? Justice! When do we want it? Now!” “Who’s in the house? Puerto Rico’s in the house!” and also repeating “The Jones Act has got to go.”Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
