    in Energy

    Local Law 87 New York City - http://www.CarletonEC.com  - Local Law 87 New York: Retro-Commissioning & Auditing NYC Made Easy. Carleton Energy Consulting Specializes in Energy Auditing, Management, Online Boiler Management and much more, 10025, 10002, 10029, 10009

    New York City building owners are often met with frustration when it comes to achieving compliance with Local Law 87. The process is complicated, time consuming, and for many, overwhelming. Improved energy efficiency is a worthy goal, and property owners looking for straightforward guidance and information have found a sensible partner in Carleton Energy Consulting (CEC). 

    Understanding Local Law 87 – In 2009, New York City passed Local Law 87 in efforts to improve energy efficiency in the city’s largest buildings. The objective is to hold building owners accountable for energy usage. Compliance is not an option, but required by law, and building owners are mandated to provide detailed information on energy usage through auditing and reporting. 

    Energy Audits for Compliance and Cost Savings Property owners employ auditing services to monitor energy use, ensuring full compliance with Local Law 87 efficiency requirements. However, while audits are required for complying with Local Law 87, they’re also a practical solution for building owners. A comprehensive energy audit is the key to sustained energy efficiency – as owners and managers can work together to follow practical recommendations resulting in significant cost savings.

    TVUH and Mark Bourrie discuss Killing The Messengers as Harper strategy

    in Politics

    Ottawa has become a place where the nation's business is done in secret, and access to information - the lifeblood of any democracy - is under attack. The public's right to know has been undermined by a government that effectively killed Statistics Canada, fired hundreds of scientists and statisticians, gutted Library and Archives Canada and turned freedom of information rules into a joke. Facts, it would seem, are no longer important.

    Kill The Messengers exposes how trends have conspired to simultaneously silence the Canadian media and elect an anti-intellectual government that conducts business in private. Demonstrating how the Harper government suppresses facts that challenge policy or undermine its ideologically based decisions. This is not just a compilation of evidence bemoaning the current state of the Canadian media. It is a call to arms for informed citizens to become active participants in the democratic process.

    Mark Bourrie holds a PhD in Canadian media and military history, is a National Magazine Award winning journalist and has written hundreds of pieces for most of the country's major magazines and newspapers. Mark lectures on propaganda and censorship at the Canadian Force's Public Affairs Branch, on media history and propaganda at Carleton University and on Canadian studies at the University of Ottawa, where he is also working on a Juris Doctor degree. Previously, Mark's book The Fog of War: Censorship of Canada's Media in World War Two was the first examination of Canada's news control system. Now, Kill The Messengers explores it in a time of so-called peace.

    Episode 280: Best of NATO in Afghanistan, With Stephen Saideman

    in Military

    Lost to many whose news sources in the USA consists of the major newspapers and the standard networks, for most of the last dozen+ years, the conflict in Afghanistan has not been a USA-Centric battle; it has been a NATO run operation.

    When the Commander of the International Security Assistance Force has been an American 4-star, the visuals can be misleading.

    For most of the last decade, American forces were dominate in only one region of Afghanistan, the east. Other NATO nations from Italy/Spain in the west, Germany in the North, and Commonwealth nations and the Dutch in the south.

    More important than the actual numbers involved, it was the Rules of Engagement, caveats, and the fickle nature of national politics that drove what effects those forces had on the ground.

    The good, the bad, and the ugly of modern coalition warfare was all in view for all in Afghanistan, but outside small circles, has yet to be fully discussed.

    Our guest for the full hour will be Stephen Saideman.

    Stephen holds the Paterson Chair in International Affairs at Carleton University’s Norman Paterson School of International Affairs.  He has written The Ties That Divide: Ethnic Politics, Foreign Policy and International Conflict and For Kin or Country: Xenophobia, Nationalism and War (with R. William Ayres) and NATO in Afghanistan: Fighting Together, Fighting Alone (with David Auerswald), and other work on nationalism, ethnic conflict, civil war, and civil-military relations.  Prof. Saideman spent 2001-02 on the U.S. Joint Staff working in the Strategic Planning and Policy Directorate as part of a Council on Foreign Relations International Affairs Fellowship.  He writes online at OpenCanada.org, Political Violence at a Glance, Duck of Minerva and his own site (saideman.blogspot.com).  He also tweets too much at @smsaideman.

    in Religion

    Tune in as the Sistas chat with Carleton Bluford the filmmaker behind 2%, an upcoming documentary about Utah's Black population. The film seeks to shed light on one of the state’s smallest racial groups. The latest census shows African-Americans make up less than two-percent of Utah’s population. The hope is to find out who makes up this two-percent; where they came from; why they stay in Utah; and to take a look at how we define Blackness in America. Carleton and the film's producer Lonzo Liggins, are not only a part of Utah's racial minority, but also it's religious minority because they are not members of the LDS church Their documentary will feature others who share their experiences as well as the experiences of Black Latter-day Saints. 2% features voices such as former NBA player Thurl Baily, Calvary Baptist Church Pastor France A. Davis and Nadia Crow, Utah's first Black primary weekday day news anchor.
