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
