Workers at the Broken Oroville Dam Spillway Executing a Complex 7-Day Plan While the Weather Holds

The City of Oroville, California, with its population of about 18,000 is battling the consequences of an infrastructure failure of the Oroville Dam’s emergency spillway. However, with the weather forecast promising seven to ten continuous days of sunny weather, the workers at the Oroville Dam are furiously executing a plan they hope will ease the situation.


The three immediate objectives are to restore conditions around the Hyatt Power Plant in order to resume operations, lift the emergency evacuation warning for the people who live in areas below the dam, and release water into the Feather River from the entire Oroville complex, which involves a series of dams.


The Oroville River Reservoir is now down to a record low of 838 feet and the first step in the plan was accomplished when they reduced the flow from the Oroville Dam onto the emergency spillway to zero.


When the mid section of the emergency spillway gave way, rock and debris washed down and accumulated in the Thermolito Diversion Pool below the dam, causing water to backup in this area. Because the water level in this Pool is now unacceptably high, the Hyatt Power Plant had to be shut down.


By removing the debris in the Pool, engineers calculate that the water level in this area with fall below the power plant’s turbine level, where is should be, and the plant will be able to be safely put back into operation.


Step two of the plan involves floating barges and excavators working furiously on three sides of the rock and debris to clean it out of the Thermolito Diversion Pool. Some of this excess water that will be released will be diverted to the Feather River to keep the fish and ecosystems alive.


Around the clock monitoring of the emergency spillway area is being conducted with government drones, helicopters, engineers and emergency personnel. Remaining on schedule while no precipitation is forecasted is critical to the success of this operation.


If successful, the power lines that were disconnected because they were in the way of the broken emergency spillway will be reconnected in order to get electricity from the Hyatt Power Plant to area residents. In addition, the situation will be considered manageable, even with the broken spillway, and the evacuation warning will be cancelled.



The Interesting Rise of Yanni Hufnagel

At first glance Yanni Hufnagel might seem rather unassuming, a lithe, young Jewish man who was raised in Scarsdale and had a youthful penchant for basketball. However, Yanni Hufnagel along is anything but ordinary. In high school a youthfully optimistic Hufnagel learned to shoot, got pretty good at it but ultimately he was not good enough for Varsity and was eventually kicked off the team. He quickly realized that though he might not be able to make it as a pro player himself he knew that his theoretical grasp on the game was second to none. With these thoughts in mind he quickly gained a position as a recruiter and basketball coach at Harvard for The Crimson’s.


This opportunity provided quick momentous, not just for Yanni Hufnagel’s career but also for the Crimson’s win record. In the four seasons which Mr. Hufnagel has coached for the Crimsons they won the Ivy League for the first time in their tenure. Additionally, Hufnagel’s recruiting skills have also netted Harvard the 6’3 basketball phenom known as Jeremy Lin which has brought both men into the spotlight of the broader basketball world.


As of 2011, Yanni Hufnagel was voted one of the most likely to make it as a top recruiter in the basketball industry by CBS. The basketball coach Josh Pastner of the University of Memphis has also publicly stated that, “Yanni is a better recruiter than I am.” High praise indeed! As one might have assumed from Mr. Hufnagel proclivity for recruiting, he did indeed rise high in his profession and now works for the Nevada Wolf Pack Men’s Basketball Team and still keeps in touch with his old friend, Jeremy Lin who himself is now one of the most famous basketball players in the world.

Creating A Menu Of Wines With Proper Guidance From UK Vintners

Any formal menu will have certain elements to it. A standard menu often has a starter, a main course and then a dessert. In addition to creating a menu with food, many people love the idea of being able to create a menu that also includes wines. Wine works very well with all kinds of food. A sharp white is wonderful when served alongside fish. A sweet red will often help show why a slice of roast beef not only has tones of umami but also has tones of other flavors like fruit. Many UK-based vintners are happy to demonstrate to their clients how they can create a menu of wines. Vintners in England often have access to wines that a buyer may not have heard about before. The UK vintners can also help people figure out why a given wine might work better with a specific kind of menu course that they have in mind, allowing them the opportunity to create a really satisfying menu.

Creating A Formal Wine Menu

A formal wine menu will typically begin with a wine that works well with an appetizer. A light wine such as those that are found at Corney & Barrow, can help create a means of waking up the palate and helping it prepare for what is to come during the rest of the menu. The light flavors can merge well and help people feel comfortable as they head into the next course in front of them. As people prepare for the next course, many like to have something it is a bit heavier and keeps body on the tongue. Working closely with UK vintners  can help any buyer pick out a wine that will work with any main course they have in mind. Many vintners know the exact kind of wine that will help show off a fine piece of duck breast or a nicely prepared turkey leg. They know that the right wine can also help show off any side dishes that the person might place on the menu like mashed potatoes or carefully sauteed green beans. Some vintners in England, such as Shawbury Vintners ( offer in home tastings where you can sample up to 10 different wines.

A Final Finish

Ending a dinner, like ending anything else, is often best done of a note of great sweetness. Many people love to serve a fruit tart for their finale as it means merging fruit with sugar and butter to create something even more flavorful. A wine merchant such as A&B Vintners (feel free to contact A&B Vintners: here) can help pinpoint which particular wines might pair very well with a classic English apple tart or a piece of lemon cake. They can also help show off why a specific wine might work with a cheese course as well as a course at the end that perhaps includes a piece of fine chocolate and some almonds.

With their help, it is easy to create a wine menu that helps show off all the flavors in each dish. Diners can leave the table feeling happy with the choice of wines they have consumed there.

Laidlaw & Company Is Implicated In a Defamation Case by Relmada Therapeutics

Relmada Therapeutics has recently filed a lawsuit against Laidlaw & Company. Relmada is a pharmaceutical firm that focuses in production of novel therapies for the treatment of chronic pain. The new motion aims at piling more charges against Laidlaw as a result of breach of duty owed to the clinical firm. Furthermore, Relmada seeks financial damages arising from costs incurred responding to defamatory statements.

The Nevada court issued an injunction against Laidlaw’s directors, James Ahern and Matthew Eitner from disseminating misleading information. The plaintiff is of the opinion that Laidlaw must reimburse the company for damages suffered. Furthermore, Laidlaw should restrain from damaging the reputation of the firm in future.

Business Relationship between Laidlaw and Relmada

Laidlaw has served as the firm’s main investment banker since 2011. Furthermore, the company also served as a financial consultant in Relmada’s merger with Camp Nine, Inc. This partnership led to the inception of Relmada as a public company. As the relationship progressed, the two enterprises discussed the possibilities of attracting new sponsors. However, poor interactions with investors and a botched road show performance led to the termination of further business talks.

The current standoff between the two firms can be traced back to a disagreement on the election of Relmada Board directors. Misleading information from Laidlaw has significantly affected the company’s reputation in all aspects. It is high time they are penalized for their wrongdoing.

Laidlaw is plagued by a long list of aggrieved customers from various Counties. For instance, the company received more than 60 customer complaints for damages between 2007 and 2009. In addition, the firm failed to implement procedures and policies pertaining to rules about anti-money laundering.

About Laidlaw & Company

Laidlaw & Company is a brokerage and investment firm that offers venture advice to influential personalities and corporations. Headquartered in New York, the firm operates locally and in the U.K. Future plans are in place to open subsidiaries in other countries. Laidlaw focuses in divestitures, financial restructuring, acquisition financing and public offerings.

I strongly believe that Laidlaw should hold unscrupulous employees accountable for crimes committed. It is advisable to employ individuals of good character in an effort to promote integrity within the workplace.

San Francisco is Getting a Tony Bennett Statue

San Francisco is about to get a new statue, one in the image of singer Tony Bennett. The statue is currently being made by sculptor Bruce Wolfe. Bennett, who sings the song ‘I Left My Heart in San Francisco’ is a bit of an icon in the city. Wolfe captured him for the statue in person. Bennett traveled to Wolfe’s studio to pose for the sculpture. A sitting that was only supposed to happen one day, he actually came for several days in a row to make it happen, wearing the same suit each day in order to keep the image uniform.

Wolfe says that he needed the three days in order to get the statue just right, something they were both interested in happening. No one wants to be commemorated in statue form forever with something that isn’t perfect, right?

The statue is San Francisco’s birthday gift to the singer. He turns 90 on Friday, August 19th. As a gift, the city will be unveiling the statue on the lawn at the Fairmont Hotel. The Fairmont is located in San Francisco’s Nob Hill neighborhood. It was at that hotel that Bennett made his San Francisco debut, a performance that happened in 1954. The unveiling will happen at noon, early enough to ensure that Bennett can make it to his next big engagement: the SF Giants game.

Bennett’s sold ‘I Left My Heart in San Francisco’ has become a staple at the games, played each night as the fans start to file out of the bleachers. On Friday, Bennett himself will be performing the tune, a move that no doubt will keep fans in the stands a little longer.

Saturday, the iconic singer will stay in town and perform at a charity event for Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. The event, which will be held at the Fairmont, the new home of his statue, will raise money for a new charity entitled the Tony Bennett Fund for Emergency Pediatric Care. Tickets to that event are quite expensive, with the cheapest seats in the house selling for $1,000.

How Does Sanjay Shah Help Raise Autism Awareness?

Autism awareness is one of the most important things that can be done for kids around the world, and all these kids are struggling in school because of something that they cannot control.

Sanjay Shah Denmark is trying to raise money with Autism Rocks to help with autism awareness, and he wants to show that even kids like his son will be able to succeed just like all others. Autism Rocks is this very intricate concert promoter that brings donors to concerts, and that is how Sanjay Shah is raising money today.

He started out with a small dream, but he also knew that he would be able to help kids like his son because he could raise a lot of money at just one concert. He knows that it is very easy to make these things happen when he has the best acts in the world coming to his shows, and he also wants to be sure that he can get all the donors that have a good time when they are at the shows.

People who are having a good time are going to give more money to the cause, and that is where Sanjay Shah shows his genius. He runs Solo Capital in the same way because he is able to help people who are in need of investing services with customer service that is perfect for them. The boutique nature of the business is perfect for his customers, and he has applied that to the charity to make sure that he can help kids with autism.

Everyone should believe in giving back in one way or another, and that is why Sanjay Shah is so interested in helping people. He knows that he is going to help his son, but he also knows that he is going to be able to help people like his son’s friends who are suffering. Everyone benefits when people with influence like Sanjay Shah are going to raise money and awareness at the same time.

Kyle Bass And Hedge Funds: Poor Bedfellows

Kyle Bass is responsible for CAD, the Coalition for Affordable Drugs. Why is he responsible for CAD? Well, there could be a lot of reasons for this, but one of the big ones seems to be the poor performance of his Texas-based hedge fund. Kyle Bass should be doing better, when one considers his regular media appearances. But somehow, every time he makes a media appearance, his hedge fund’s own ability to increase on itself seems to actually decrease. It’s almost like there’s an inversely proportional relationship to Bass’ media appearances, and his hedge fund’s performance. It really doesn’t make sense to a lot of people, because Bass hit the market so prominently in 2008 with his successful prediction of America’s sub-prime lending crisis, and the resulting economic fall-out. Since then though, he doesn’t seem to have any gold-strikes under his belt–except for CAD.

Kyle Bass uses CAD as a means of manipulating the stock-market out of millions. The scam is elegant and simple, and it works like this: Bass forces big-ticket pharmaceuticals into lowering costs of their profit-garnering drugs. This results in devaluation of stock, which Kyle Bass has holdings in. He short-sells his holdings and gets away with millions. What’s so brilliant about the scheme is that it is entirely legal, and it’s controversial to boot. All Bass has to do is remain enigmatic and trust in the ignorance of the public, primarily the left; ironic as that may be. See, ostensibly, CAD’s purpose is to decrease the cost of big-ticket pharmaceuticals so those who are already ill don’t have to pay as much for their necessary medications. The thing is, when such prices are curtailed, the profit they would have brought the company is lost as well, and so departments which don’t directly lead to profit but drain a given pharmaceutical organization monetarily must be cut. Which departments are most guilty of not directly profiting a pharmaceutical company, but costing a lot? Why, research and development, of course! So because of CAD, future breakthroughs and developments are effectively delayed, meaning those who could have been cured in months from a new discovery may instead die. While one group of infirm people manages to save some money, future groups may very well die from preventable causes because of CAD and Kyle Bass, who was exposed by

It makes sense that he’d do these things, though. Bass is involved with Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, socialist despot of his home country: Argentina. He always sings her praises on the mainstream media, despite the double economic default de Kirchner is responsible for in the space of only thirteen years.

Kyle Bass doesn’t do well in his hedge-fund, but it is explicable: the hedge-fund may not be his main aim in America. For what that is, one must consider his relationship to de Kirchner closely, and read between the lines.
