Guernsey Police have confirmed that the search and rescue operation for Emiliano Sala has been resumed.The Argentine striker and a pilot are missing after the Piper PA-46 Malibu they were flying on disappeared off Alderney in the Channel Islands at 20:30 (GMT) on Monday.Sala was travelling from Nantes to Wales after being confirmed as Cardiff City’s record signing on Saturday for £15m following an impressive start to the season in Ligue 1 Nantes.Search and rescue teams had worked tirelessly to find the missing plane on Tuesday before the effort was called off for the night.Despite initial fears that today’s weather conditions may postpone the search for the aircraft, Guernsey Police have confirmed the operation is back on.“We have resumed searching,” read a police statement on Twitter.“Two planes are taking off and will search a targeted area we believe has the highest likelihood of finding anything, based on review of the tides and weather since [Sala’s plane] went missing.“Coastal areas around Alderney and off-lying rocks and islands will also be searched from the air. Updates will be provided once information is available.”Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.Tributes have since been pouring in for Sala with hundreds of Nantes supporters gathering in the city centre in his honour.However, the 28-year-old’s father Horacio Sala admits he’s losing hope.“First thing and mainly, I would like to find him alive,” said Horacio in his native Argentina.“But I am losing hope because, if they can’t find him in the water, I have to say this doesn’t look good.“My wife and my daughter are going to travel now, I don’t know if they are going to France or to England.“No one has called us, including no one from the Government. We are a modest family and have no contacts at that level. I heard it was snowing, I don’t know.“It is something that has no explanation. He had a whole future in front of him and many projects.”
Biodiesel Industry Lobbying for Tax Credit Home Energy Biodiesel Industry Lobbying for Tax Credit Previous articleEU Grants Glyphosate License RenewalNext article2017 Census of Agriculture Gets Underway Hoosier Ag Today SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Nov 29, 2017 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Nearly 100 members of the National Biodiesel Board are on Capitol Hill this week encouraging lawmakers to reinstate the biodiesel tax credit, which expired in December 2016. As part of an annual fly-in to the Capitol, NBB members are meeting with lawmakers to support the tax credit to “stabilize the business environment” for the industry, according to NBB CEO Doug Whitehead. They are also sharing results of a new survey conducted with 1,000 registered voters nationwide. The survey found that 82 percent of registered voters support a federal tax incentive. The same percentage of people polled expressed support for a national Renewable Fuel Standard.The visits come as the Environmental Protection Agency is expected to release the final RFS volumes this week. Since the July proposal was released, NBB has repeatedly called for growth in the volumes. The July proposal offered up a reduction in advanced biofuels, of which biodiesel fills roughly 90 percent and a flatline of biomass-based diesel.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE
Hailing from Austin, Texas, Mamafesta is a band creating waves on both the local and national level. This unique five-member band brings a sound that is the “sum of all of our individual musical influences,” says Zack Morgan (keys/vocals). Mamafesta made their KAABOO debut at KAABOO Del Mar 2017 and returned again in 2018. They are set to play the festival’s debut Texas edition the weekend of May 10-12th at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.All Things KAABOO Texas: An Indulgent Adult Escape In TexasWe sat down with the band to catch up on all things Mamafesta, KAABOO, and what is in store for the future of this Texas Groove-Rock bowl of musical gumbo. Born in 2011 from a broad palette of sounds and a conscious awareness for the rhythms of the universe, Mamafesta has created a sound that entirely stands on its own two legs. 2019 has already been loaded with success for these guys– with highlights including a Texas run with Perpetual Groove and a slew of new music for their upcoming second album.Morgan says that “the band itself represents a sound reminiscent of The Allman Brothers, Little Feat, The Meters, and other southern rock and funk staples.” Lowell Carrico (guitar/vocals) voices that as a writer, his “role models include Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Hunter Thompson, and Ken Kesey.”A distinctive feature of Mamafesta is that every member of the band contributes to the vocals of their songs. Morgan says the band “puts a lot of work into the lyrics and vocal arrangements…each voice has its own characteristics and when they’re blended together it makes something special.”Lowell comments on the writing process of the band and that “regardless of how the song is conceived, it always matures with the help of all members of the band, the audience and the environment in which it is raised up in. No song shall be served before its time.”The band is absolutely thrilled to be a part of the KAABOO Texas lineup after playing two years at the fest’s Del Mar gathering. The 2019 KAABOO Texas lineup showcases some legendary musicians, and Morgan adds “we are honored and blown away every time we look at the list of artists. This year at KAABOO Texas I am really looking forward to Sting, The Avett Brothers, Lauryn Hill, Lukas Nelson, and many others.”Carrico sums up the festival quite wonderfully, “KAABOO, at its core, is the idea that a high end, luxury experience can take the shape of a giant, living, outdoor, feel good, let your hair down, rock and roll show and still provide the decadent culinary, world-renowned artwork and top tier comedic relief for the concert goer who thought their festival days were over as well as the youth of America in their coming of age.” We could not have said it better ourselves.We also heard that their tour DAD-AGER (tour manager/dad), Steve Sullivan, is making synthesizers inside of Tupperware containers that the band is now using at live shows…for real! Be sure to keep up with all things Mamafesta on the band’s Facebook and Instagram pages as well as catch their set at KAABOO on Sunday, May 12th. KAABOO Texas will feature performances from The Killers, Kid Rock, Sting, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Little Big Town, The Avett Brothers, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Pitbull, Counting Crows, Alanis Morissette, The Black Eyed Peas, Ludacris, Flo Rida, Garbage, Andy Grammer, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Violent Femmes, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, and many more.
