FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享By Duncan Adams for the Roanoke Times:One partner in the controversial Mountain Valley Pipeline project informed investors that “competition for pipeline infrastructure within the Appalachian Basin is intense” and warned that lack of access to such infrastructure could drag down company earnings.EQT Corp.’s annual report, filed Feb. 11, said investments in affiliate EQT Midstream, one partner in the 301-mile Mountain Valley interstate pipeline, should help yield the infrastructure desired.Yet a study by a Cleveland-based think tank that promotes renewable energy contends that natural gas pipelines out of the Marcellus and Utica shale formations in the Appalachian Basin are being overbuilt.David Messersmith, an educator with Penn State Extension’s Marcellus Education Team, said he believes the truth resides somewhere in the middle.“There is clearly a need for additional pipeline infrastructure, although perhaps not as much as is currently proposed,” he said. “This is a market-driven process, and we are perhaps beginning to see the market correct itself regarding pipeline capacity.”He cited a recent decision by Kinder Morgan and subsidiary Tennessee Gas Pipeline to suspend the Northeast Energy Direct interstate natural gas pipeline project. A statement from Kinder Morgan said it decided to suspend the 420-mile, $3 billion project because not enough customers had signed on to ship gas through the pipeline.“It wouldn’t surprise me to see additional projects in the Marcellus-Utica basin canceled or put on hold,” Messersmith said.The study suggesting that pipelines are being overbuilt was published by the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis at the request of Appalachian Mountain Advocates and Appalachian Voices, two nonprofit organizations opposed to both the Mountain Valley Pipeline and the separate Atlantic Coast Pipeline.Full article: http://www.roanoke.com/business/news/debate-over-overbuilding-raises-questions-about-pipeline-projects/article_8f5c9cec-447f-521e-b580-c9869e746723.html Will Pipeline Market Correct Itself to Address Overbuilding?

May 17, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – A US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory panel unanimously agreed Wednesday that FluMist, a nasal spray vaccine against seasonal flu, is safe and effective in children 2 years of age and older.The live-virus vaccine, which is manufactured by Gaithersburg, Maryland–based MedImmune, is already FDA-approved for 5- to 49-year-olds. The company has filed a supplemental biologics licensing application (sBLA) to expand its use to children younger than 5.In a 15-0 decision, the panel of outside experts supported the vaccine’s use for children 2 and older who do not have a history of wheezing. The FDA, which is expected to make a decision by the end of May, is not required to follow the panel’s recommendations.”The question remaining is how the FDA ultimately will rule on children under 2,” said MedImmune’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Edward Connor, according to an Associated Press report.The panel voted 9-6 for the vaccine’s safety and benefits for children between 12 to 59 months without wheezing history and 12-3 against using the nasal spray in children between 6 to 23 months, according to a MedImmune press release.”The vote did demonstrate that there is a safety concern among a significant minority of the advisory committee,” Florence Houn, FDA deputy director of the office handling MedImmune’s application, told the Washington Post. “We do have to be careful about this respiratory adverse event profile and make sure we understand it.”A recent international study published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed children between 6 and 11 months who received FluMist had more hospitalizations and slightly more wheezing than those who got the standard vaccine, CIDRAP News reported in February. However, the same study, which was conducted in the 2004-2005 flu season, revealed 55% fewer cases of flu in the children who received the FluMist.CIDRAP Medical Director Kristine Moore, MD, MPH, said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommends vaccination for children between 6 and 59 months because they have an increased risk for influenza-related hospitalizations and emergency room visits. Having a vaccine that is not a shot could enhance vaccination rates, Moore said.”It’s more tolerable to younger children,” she noted. “If FluMist is approved for this age-group, it would probably improve compliance to the CDC recommendation.”Currently only injectable inactivated vaccines are available for this group.FluMist vaccine has been on the market since 2003. It is effective against influenza A and B viruses; side-effects of the vaccine based on results from placebo-controlled clinical trials have included runny nose, sore throat, cough, headache, and chills.In January, the FDA also approved a refrigerated formulation of FluMist (previous formulations had to be frozen), which will be available for the 2007-2008 flu season, according to MedImmune.British company AstraZeneca is scheduled to acquire MedImmune in June in a $15.6 billion sale.See also:MedImmune Press ReleaseFeb 16, 2007, CIDRAP News story “Large study supports FluMist use in toddlers”2007 New England Journal of Medicine article [Abstract]
By Aditi Khanna London, Sep 7 (PTI) A unique photography exhibition celebrating Durga Puja festivities as part of the UK’s ‘Totally Thames Festival’ has been attracting large crowds in London. The exhibition titled ‘Bengal’s Durga’, produced by the West Bengal government and curated by Ali Pretty and Kamalika Bose, comprises 16 exhibition panels of photography by Manjit Singh Hoonjan to present an insight into the “outpouring of creativity, artistic innovation and cultural celebration” of Durga Puja tradition.For 10 days in autumn, 10 million revellers descend on the state of West Bengal for Durga Puja festivities with its thousands of mega idols, hundreds of themed art installations and processions to the River Hooghly,” an official statement said, in reference to the outdoor exhibition on the South Bank of the river Thames on display until September 30. “We see a Durga Puja transcended from its religious origins to offer a broad canvas that binds communities together through artistic expression, incorporating music, theatre, fashion and food,” it said. The exhibition, which opened on August 18, has been put together by West Bengal’s Department of Tourism in collaboration with British Council, which is marking its 70-year anniversary in India. A delegation, led by West Bengal Minister of State for Sports and Youth Services Laxmi Ratan Shukla and comprising the state’s Principal Secretary of Tourism Atri Bhattacharya, paid a visit to the show on Thursday evening during their ongoing Ireland and UK visit. Shukla said the event reflected efforts to establish collaborations between artists from around the world with those from West Bengal and showcase the state’s “experiential tourism”.advertisement He said, “Durga Puja is a celebration of cultural identity that goes beyond religion. Millions of people come together through tradition, art, performances, music and food. Coincidentally, Durga Puja in its present form traces its origin to interactions with the British in the last 18th century. Our Durga Puja as a festival is unparalleled. There is nothing in the world that compares to it, added Bhattacharya. ‘Totally Thames’ is an annual season of arts and cultural events held in September along the river Thames, curated and managed by the Thames Festival Trust. This year’s inclusion of ‘Bengal’s Durga’ exhibition has its roots in the Silk River project by Kinetika Design Studio, a flagship programme as part of the UK-India Year of Culture 2017 to celebrate the unique relationship between London and Kolkata through artistic exchange between communities along the Thames Estuary and the Hooghly river. “British Council India has been inspired every day of the last 70 years by the art and culture of West Bengal. I hope this exhibition, which showcases the creativity and culture of Bengal’s river communities, will inspire young people from both India and the UK to build enduring connections through education, arts and culture for the next 70 years,” said Debanjan Chakraborty, British Council Director for East and North East India, who is part of the West Bengal delegation on their UK visit.
