Aston Villa v Brentford: five key battles

first_imgBrentford travel to Aston Villa on Wednesday for the first time in more than 63 years. Very few fans will remember the Bees’ 0-0 FA Cup draw in January 1953 – here’s the five match-ups that could swing the latest contest.Scott Hogan v Tommy ElphickHogan’s double at Brighton not only earned the Bees three valuable points on the road, but it took the striker’s personal goal tally to 10 in 13 league games since his return from injury. On Wednesday, he comes up against Wales international James Chester and Villa skipper Elphick, who has settled in well since his move from Bournemouth.Andreas Bjelland v Jordan AyewIf Leicester loanee Callum Elder succumbs to a knee injury suffered on Saturday, Bjelland will again step in after an impressive second half up against Anthony Knockaert. He’ll face another of the division’s top players in Ghana international Ayew, a former Champions League player with Marseille.Maxime Colin v Jack GrealishOn the other flank, Colin will also have a challenge up against the unpredictable Grealish, who can dazzle one minute and flatter to deceive the next. If he can keep his man quiet, Brentford could do well – if he can’t, they might be in for a long night.Ryan Woods v Mile JedinakWoods continues to look comfortable at this level, a little over a year after stepping up from Shrewsbury. His range of passing will be crucial to setting off the Bees’ counter-attacks – former Crystal Palace skipper Jedinak will be keen to win their personal duel.Dean Smith v Roberto Di MatteoBees boss Smith talked of his Villa connections in the build up – he and his brother watched them as children, and his father was a Villa Park steward for 30 years. But once the whistle goes, focus will switch to his tactical battle with a Champions League-winning Chelsea hero occupying the opposite dugout.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Getting to Zero Waste

first_img RELATED ARTICLES One of the goals of a sustainable city is to effectively manage material flows into and out of the city. Garbage, or what environmental engineers call solid waste, presents some of the most difficult challenges to urban sustainability.San Francisco may well be on the way to achieving its goal of “zero waste,” or to divert all of its garbage away from landfills. Currently, San Francisco diverts 80% of its waste away from landfills. According to New York Times reporter Matt Richtel: “San Francisco also has a world-class reputation for its composting processes, which turns food waste into fine, coffee-like grounds that is sent to farms as fertilizer.” And he observes that San Francisco is the “Silicon Valley of recycling.”The SF Environment Department for the city and county of San Francisco has set a goal of zero waste by 2020. That formerly future-sounding date is just four years away. According to the department, about half of the waste now placed in non-recycle bins could be recycled, which would drive the waste diversion rate to 90%. According to the department’s website:To achieve 100 percent zero waste, SF Environment will continue to advocate for state legislation and partner with producers to develop a producer responsibility system, where producers design better products and take responsibility for the entire life-cycle of a product, including take-back and recycling. Steven Cohen is the executive director of Columbia University’s Earth Institute and a professor in the Practice of Public Affairs at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs. This post originally appeared at The Huffington Post. The city’s zero waste policy includes three goals: 1. prevent waste; 2. recycle and compost; and 3. safely handle toxics. San Francisco’s unique political and social culture must be seen as a major factor contributing to this program’s success. People in that city behave as if reducing waste and recycling are important social behaviors. New Yorkers can’t be botheredIn contrast, New York City’s waste diversion rate is 16%. The goal is to get to zero waste by 2030. It’s a little difficult to see how that goal will be achieved. The city’s target for FY 2016 is 19%, but according to the NYC mayor’s management report, the actual diversion rate is anywhere from 1.2- 2.9% below target.Any casual look at New York City’s public recycling bins will provide a sense of the difficult road New York must travel to reach anything approaching zero waste. Paper bins are filled with bottles and the bottle bins are filled with a wide variety of unsorted waste. Northern Californians may be thoughtful about waste disposal, but New Yorkers can’t be bothered. It is not clear that New York is capable of a cultural shift deep enough to achieve the diversion rates already reached in San Francisco.Each city is different, and New York’s pace, diversity, and size make comparisons to San Francisco difficult. Still, large-scale behavior changes can be achieved with leadership, strategy and creativity. New York City has eliminated indoor smoking in public places. New Yorkers have learned how to comply with alternate side of the street parking rules and some are even learning how to stop jaywalking.So it is possible that waste disposal behaviors could change. But it will take leadership and the sustained attention of the mayor and the media. It’s unlikely to happen because garbage has little appeal as a political issue. Climate change holds conferences in Paris and attracts attention at Davos. Garbage gets a little less glamor.In any case, behavior change alone is not sufficient. The recycled waste must actually be reused — a problem with the weak market for some recycled substances. The technology of waste sorting and the energy efficiency and cost-effectiveness of recycling also need improvement. A city’s system of recycling and waste management is as important as an individual’s waste disposal behavior. The technology and market will come to New York City, but probably not by 2030.center_img It is clear to most experts that a system of recycling facilities, waste-to-energy plants, and changed public behavior would be a more cost-effective and environmentally beneficial waste management system for New York City. Unfortunately, New York can barely site marine waste transfer facilities and has been unable to build waste-to-energy plants or other elements of a more advanced waste management system. New Yorkers simply won’t accept construction of those facilities in their neighborhoods. In any case, as New York’s land prices rise, it becomes increasingly uneconomical to locate those facilities within the city.The gap between San Francisco’s accomplishment of 80% landfill diversion and New York’s 16% is huge. New York was ahead of its time in building its water and mass transit system, but is far behind the times in dealing with its garbage. When compared to San Francisco, the two waste management systems are truly a tale of two very different cities. Landfills Are a Big Methane ProblemAre We Recycling Too Much of Our Trash?Saving Energy by RecyclingJobsite RecyclingBeyond RecyclingWaste Management for New Construction and RemodelingArizona Bans Ban on BagsRecycled PVC Raises Health ConcernsPlastic Production Rises But Recycling Can’t Keep UpCurbside Recycling for Polystyrene FoamRecycling Vinyl Siding The circular economyZero waste is an element of the concept of a circular economy. In a circular economy, all waste from consumption becomes an input into new production. Inevitably there is some leakage in the tightest circular production process. But the goal is to move from a linear model of production-consumption-waste to one more closely resembling a circular model. I don’t think of zero waste as an achievable operational goal, but rather as a model and an aspiration. It is a way to think about resource use and waste management, rather than an absolute target.It requires a paradigm shift or a new way of thinking about consumption and garbage. Instead of mindlessly tossing something you have consumed into a waste bin, you sort it or consider how it might be re-used. In the case of production processes, it includes the concept of producer responsibility. The producer includes in the price of a good an incentive to bring the good back to the place of purchase or to the manufacturer. The manufacturer, in turn, designs the good to be mined for resources or to be reconfigured for additional use. Of course moving the good or material through the production process requires energy and so the closed system works best when it is powered by renewable energy.These ideas of closed systems of production and consumption are central to the concept of the sustainable city. As the mechanization of agriculture reduces rural employment and as the Internet communicates the appeal and seductiveness of urban lifestyles, more and more of the world’s population is moving to cities. This creates opportunities for more efficient production, distribution and consumption of goods and services and leads to the possibility of systems that approach the goal of zero waste.While New York City may aspire to zero waste by 2030, at the same time the city was announcing that goal in 2015, it was also proposing a long-term deal with an upstate New York landfill to take the city’s garbage for the next several decades. According to Cole Rosengren of City Limits:A new plan to send Brooklyn’s garbage upstate would solidify the city’s waste export strategy for decades, but also shows how impractical the system has become. Under a newly proposed 20-year contract with IESI — a major industry player owned by Canadian company Progressive Waste Solutions — much of Brooklyn’s residential garbage would be shipped to the company’s Seneca Meadows landfill at a projected cost of $3.3 billion… New York has struggled to deal with its garbage in a sustainable way since the Fresh Kills landfill closed on Staten Island in 2001. According to Department of Sanitation (DSNY) data, it cost $99 to dispose of a ton of garbage in 2000 versus $145 in 2014 when adjusted for inflation.last_img read more

Hawks send center Dwight Howard to Hornets

Belinelli, 31, is set to earn $6.6 million in the final year of his deal.Michael Jordan’s Hornets have been attempting to land a star player for quite some time and Howard potentially gives them that if he can return to playing at a high level.Point guard Kemba Walker has developed into an All-Star, but Nicolas Batum struggled last season after being handed a $120 million, five-year contract — the largest ever given to a Hornets player.The trade also satisfies the Hornets’ search for a true center since losing Al Jefferson to free agency last summer. They had hoped that Roy Hibbert would fill the role of a rim protector, but injuries slowed him down and he was eventually traded to Milwaukee in a midseason deal that brought Plumlee to Charlotte.Plumlee wasn’t much of a contributor last season for Charlotte and he was beset by injuries.The Hornets traded away their first-round draft pick in 2016 to acquire Belinelli after losing Courtney Lee and Jeremy Lin in free agency. Belinelli played in 74 games last season and averaged 10.5 points per game on 42.9 percent shooting. What offseason?

Still, he finished the season unhappy about his diminished role in the playoffs, when he averaged eight points and 10.7 rebounds.“It was very difficult. I want to play,” Howard said after the season. “I want to be on the floor. I want to make an impact. You can’t do it on the bench.”The Hawks were eliminated in the first round for the first time since 2014.
