Roth Tall honored as Green Up Vermont Citizen of the Year

first_imgRoth “T” Tall Named Governor Deane C. Davis Green Up Citizen of the Year 2008Montpelier: Green Up Vermont named Roth “T” Tall as the Governor Deane C. Davis Green Up Citizen of the year, 2008, with tribute presented at Green Up’s recent Annual Awards Banquet.”T” Tall epitomizes civic mindedness. Without fail, people describe him as: “very public service oriented; very civil minded; willing to serve and help others; amazingly active in his town as well as in the greater picture with Rotary International; no one more civic minded.” It is said that “T” just doesnt say “no;” that he is the guy you go to when everyone else says “no” — he will at least listen and will at least get something going, if not take it on himself. He is said to be first in line to volunteer, whether to pick up Christmas trees or serve on a town board or project.Now living in Cornwall, Vermont, “T” first came to Vermont to go to Middlebury College and in his words, “never looked back.” It was foremost the people here. He majored in geography and was nominated for a Rhodes Scholarship by the department. From 1966 to 1968, he served in the U.S. Army Artillery as Captain and Battery Commander in the Korean War.Then, to T’s good fortune, Middlebury College asked him to come back to the campus. For the next eight years he served as Director of Student Activities and then Assistant Director of Development and Director of Annual Funds. He left to become Director of Development and Alumni Relations for an Ohio institution and then a Campaign Director for two national fund raising consulting firms. Having kept his Vermont house, he found his love for Vermont kept bringing him back, so in 1987 he founded his own consulting firm in Vermont, Ulvik Enterprises, for charitable institutions. He also ran his own apple orchard for five years. In 1999 he retired, though he continues to share his knowledge and skills as needs arise.In 2005, “T” and his wife received the Middlebury College Bicentennial Citizen’s Award for Community Service. Some call “T” “Blue Blooded,” which he is . . . that is, Middlebury Blue!”T”‘s past community service with numerous volunteer organizations includes involvement with: Addison County Home Health and Hospice; Addison County United Way; the American Red Cross local chapter; Cornwall Historical Society; National Society of Fund Raising Executives; Rotary Internationals Group Study Exchange with Korea; and Rotary Club of Middlebury. In every case, “T” was always more than a member. He consistently served as Chair or President of boards and committees and worked in financial development and management. Near and dear to our Green Up effort, “T” was a charter volunteer for the first Green Up Day in 1970 and served as a county chair and then President of the Board of Directors.”T” has also served on the Cornwall Select Board, including chairing it, and on the Planning Commission, also having chaired it. He was instrumental in founding the Middlebury Volunteer Ambulance Association and has served as a board member. Although he describes himself as a retired EMT, he remains actively involved when needed. “T” is Secretary of the Middlebury College Class of 1965 and served as 25th Reunion Co-Chair and Class Agent. He is a Vermont Symphony Orchestra volunteer and in conjunction with his hobby of collecting antique toy trains he annually sets up a layout for the Henry Sheldon Museums Christmas festivity.Especially important to “T” these days, is his work with Rotary International. He is District Governor-elect for 2008 2009, commencing in July. He fervently supports the new international theme to “Make Dreams Real,” which focuses on reducing the enormous numbers of infant mortalities world-wide. This effort has roused massive support from many fronts including a one-hundred million dollar contribution from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Green Up Vermont thanks “T” for his tireless and continuing efforts to make his community, Vermont and the world a better place for humankind.last_img read more

Wood Mackenzie predicts 43GW of Asia offshore wind by 2027

first_imgWood Mackenzie predicts 43GW of Asia offshore wind by 2027 FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享ET Energy World:The Asia-Pacific region’s offshore wind power capacity would rise 20-fold to 43 Gigawatt (GW) through 2027, according to a recent report by global natural resources consultancy Wood Mackenzie.It said that China, leading in the race, is expected to see offshore wind capacity grow from 2 GW last year to 31 GW in the next decade.Taiwan, which comes next, would account for 20 per cent or 8.7 GW of offshore wind capacity by 2027. This would make it the largest offshore wind market in Asia-Pacific excluding China (APeC) by 2020. “Taiwan presents the biggest offshore market in APeC due to a relatively stable regulatory regime, a supportive government, and openness to foreign investment,” said Robert Liew, senior analyst, Wood Mackenzie.At present, Taiwan relies heavily on coal, gas and nuclear for power. “However, the government has pledged to shut down nuclear plants by 2025, thereby leaving a void of 5 GW of power capacity to be filled. Offshore wind is poised to fill this gap as more than 5.7 GW of projects have been approved and planned for commissioning by 2025,” the research firm said in a report.[Liew] added that prices are coming down and thus future offshore wind prices were projected to be competitive with traditional thermal prices by 2025.More: Asia-Pacific offshore wind energy capacity to rise 20-fold in next decade: Wood Mackenzielast_img read more

Letters-to-the-editor, July 1, 2002

first_imgI think that Tod Aronovitz will make a wonderful Bar president, but I disagree with his voluntary plea for money in order to polish up the image of Florida lawyers. Our loss of status, as well as any one-sided perception of lawyers, has its genesis in a lack of civility and respect in our dealings with each other. Clients come to depositions and see us at our worst. Jurors see lawyers put on a display in a courtroom that is often designed for anything but to lead to the truth.Of course, I am not speaking of all lawyers or even the majority of lawyers in Florida. I am addressing the fact that lawyers need to improve on their substance rather than figure out how to create a better image. The better image will come with a better substance, and for this we do not need to contribute $45. We simply need to resolve among ourselves that we will treat each other as professionals in a common cause with a noble purpose. Once this is understood and practiced, then the image will follow the substance and the “whole story” will be laid bare for all to see. Howard J. Hollander Miami As chair of the Board of Legal Specialization and Education for the coming year, I want the membership to know the board will support the Dignity in Law campaign.The board in recent years has been emphasizing not only the usual certification standards of experience and expertise in an area of law, but also the manner in which the practitioner holds himself or herself out to their colleagues and the public they serve.The Board of Legal Specialization and Education stands ready to assist President Tod Aronovitz’ efforts this coming year. L. Norman Vaughan-Birch Sarasota Letters-to-the-editor, July 1, 2002 If the “Dignity in Law” program is truly to “use the same new communications techniques that large corporations use to manage business reputations,” as President Tod Aronovitz explains in his ad in the June 1 News, then he ought to consider one of the more important aspects of corporate communications “techniques.” That is, not everyone in the corporation maintains his or her own media outlet.While Mr. Aronovitz may use some polished technique in his attempt to convince the public lawyers are “good,” most people still will see the full-page ads in the telephone book, the 30-second TV spots, and the unsightly billboards pleading with people to “come on in and sue someone.”It is that kind of communication which creates the image of the lawyer, and I think Mr. Aronovitz’s efforts will be seen as an attempt to simply pretty up the ads by tying a bow around them.A more fundamental question is, why do we worry so much about our perception of the public’s image of lawyers? Whatever it is Mr. Aronovitz is concerned about has not affected me either financially or emotionally. There will always be those who complain about lawyers, just as there are those who complain about car dealers, doctors, and bureaucrats. My recollection is that distaste for lawyers goes back at least as far as Shakespeare.Of course, the entire question may soon become moot. Given the rate of growth of The Florida Bar, we’ll soon outnumber everybody else, and then there really will be no reason to be concerned about our image. Howard C. Batt Clearwater I saw the full-page promotional piece for The Florida Bar’s “Dignity in Law” campaign encouraging lawyers to donate $45 in their fee statement, for what I understand to be a public relations or public awareness campaign aimed at improving our image. Has it really come to this? We need a spin doctor?Instead of changing the perception of lawyers, why not change the reality? Surely the reputation of the Bar would be better served if we all contributed $45 to a local charity, of which there are hundreds if not thousands. One small act of altruism that affects the life of one Florida citizen is far more meaningful than a marketing campaign. The smallest act of altruism is more heartfelt than any broadcast message.If you want to change the perception, prosecute more unethical attorneys and more carefully screen law students based on character not SATs. David W. Henry Orlando July 1, 2002 Regular News Dignity in Law Congratulations are due Bar President Tod Aronovitz on his leadership in spearheading the much-needed awareness campaign, Dignity in Law.As the incoming president of the Conference of County Court Judges of Florida — consisting of all active and retired county court judges throughout Florida — one of my goals is to enlist more judges to serve on our Public Education on the Court Teams (PECTS) and educate the public on the role and function of our courts. We, too, are disappointed in the public’s perception that we are “Judge Judy” or one of the many tyrant judges portrayed on the movie screen. I would like to offer our support, involvement, and partnership in this campaign. Judge Beth Bloom Miami The Florida Bar continues to make a concerted and diligent effort to improve the reputation of the legal profession. Yet so much negativity exists in so many corners that institutional efforts alone cannot accomplish the goal of having the public properly perceive the truth about lawyers and the legal profession.There is no panacea or “magic bullet” to restore so much tarnish which has been heaped on the legal profession, especially since the Watergate political scandal which destroyed the reputations and careers of many prominent attorneys in the 1970s. However, I want to make a proposal which will increase the base of help to The Florida Bar in its remedial efforts to improve the image of the legal profession.Specifically, I suggest that The Florida Bar appoint all of its 75,000 plus members in and out of Florida as goodwill public relations ambassadors for the legal profession.The members will be charged with the responsibility to respond to any unjustified, derogatory comments about or criticisms pertaining to lawyers or the legal profession that are seen or heard, and to make a written response to same with a copy to The Florida Bar.In my experience, a reasonable letter from a responsible person usually has substantial impact on the recipient and especially institutional media entities or their advertisers or others concerned about criticism from members of the public. copying the Bar with the letters, the Bar can keep track of and, where appropriate, add its voice to the Bar member’s letter. I believe the effect of such an “Army of Correspondence” will be to dampen the enthusiasm of the legal profession’s worst critics and silence those whose criticism is unfounded.The purpose is not to prevent jest or humor which may poke good-natured fun at the legal profession. Many judges and lawyers make speeches containing jokes or anecdotes which kid or chide the legal profession. The legal profession will continue to be the butt of jokes. However, nasty, ill-tempered, and unjustified remarks are cloths of a different texture.Once this program is implemented, a column in The Florida Bar News could be utilized to report on the remarks and responses to apprise and inspire Bar members to participate in the legal profession’s challenge to unjustified attacks against it. Richard N. Friedman Miami What’s in a Name? This is an open letter to the Bar members in general seeking their advice. I am thinking of forming a solo practice, and, having read the recent articles about insurance company attorneys being able to use fictitious firm names, I thought it only fair that I, as a plaintiffs’ attorney, be given the same privilege.So, I thought of this letter to the editor as a quick survey. What do you think of the following possible firm names?• State Farm Insurance Suers, PA• Allstate Attorneys Group, PA• Nationwide Plaintiffs Firm, LLC• John Hancock, PA• GEICO and Associates• (to be “PC:”) LADYCO and Associates• Independent Insurance Pursuers, et al.• Progressive Plaintiffs Lawyers Group, LLCI mean, fair is fair, right? Ross M. Goodman Pensacola Bar Books The Bar’s new book publisher, Lexis, recently sent me a handsomely bound book of the Florida Standard Jury Instructions in Criminal Cases (“FSJICC”). This fine piece of. . . work is perfect for leisurely contemplating the finer points of criminal jury instructions in the privacy of my library. That’s how a criminal trial attorney would use a book containing the FSJICC, right? Leisurely reading and contemplating?Meanwhile, back at reality, practitioners may fondly remember the FSJICC in a three-ringed, logically formatted, tabbed binder as the standard, trusted tool that all criminal trial lawyers, prosecutors, and trial judges formerly used in “charge conferences” in all criminal trials. If “The Book” and the Lexis contract is the work of a committee, then someone from that committee should be sentenced to use “The Book” in a real criminal trial, and then explain to the rest of us how a poorly organized book lacking substantive instructions, tabs or quick reference devices, and a logical format can be easily used and trusted to help make split-second decisions under pressure on rapidly evolving trial issues affecting a citizen’s liberty (those who think jury instructions are always worked out and printed up in advance must have been on “The Book” committee). But, hey, another new book each year can’t be bad for Lexis (i.e., subsidiary of West Publishing: the owner of all law and related materials and now The Florida Bar), for the Bar and for the troops, right? (Maybe we can fumble with pocket supplements?) Yet, my independent and quite official survey would report that no criminal trial attorney, prosecutor, or judge asked can believe that the Bar has replaced a familiar and trusted trial tool with something so stupidly designed, ill-conceived, and dysfunctional as “The Book.” Solution? Simple. Update and reissue the FSJICC in the three-ring, indexed format immediately, like your mother’s liberty depended on it. And, in the future, before tinkering with remarkably reliable things that really work well in real life, discuss your ideas with real trial judges and real trial lawyers who really use them, before fixing something that is “not broke.” Michael R. Rollo Pensacola The Florida Bar is the publisher of Standard Jury Instructions in Criminal Cases. Lexis Publishing Company prints and distributes the book for the Bar. The redesign of the book was at the direction of the Supreme Court’s Committee on Standard Jury Instructions in Criminal Cases. A CD-ROM containing the full contents of the book along with the full opinions cited in the book has been added. The CD-ROM can help lawyers and judges prepare instructions both before and during trial. Its contents can be searched easily, and instructions can be copied to a new document and amended as needed. Gerry Rose CLE Publications The Florida Bar Contingency Fees While visiting my doctor’s office recently, I received a statement and the form of petition to amend the Florida Constitution, Article I, section 21, to place a limit on the recovery of non-economic damages. The statement said, “A serious health care crisis is facing our community. A runaway tort system and skyrocketing jury awards are driving medical professional liability costs out of sight. The average medical mal-practice award has more than doubled in recent years…,” is undoubtedly true, and I support the doctor’s criticism of the U.S. court system which continues to reflect the influence of the large percentage of its lawyers who designate themselves unabashedly as “trial lawyers” whose God-given duty it is to regulate, punish, and prescribe professional standards for the medical profession, as well as every other conceivable human activity except their own.The widespread use of contingent percentage fees which invest lawyers with a direct and crucial personal financial stake in civil damage claims tried largely by lay juries is the main source of the exploitation of the court system for the aggrandizement of trial lawyers.Although Bar Rule 4-1.5, clearly prohibits excessive fees, and enacts three pages of rules in fine print, the net public result as far as the public is concerned is the payment and receipt of fees running into the millions, and in the “tobacco cases” even into the billions of dollars. The recipients of these fees, the “trial lawyers” continue to advertise themselves as public servants, guardians of the public weal, and contributors to charity, the latter being reminiscent of the “sale of indulgences” by priests buying themselves and others into heaven.Trial lawyers are also the principal advertisers, and television does not present an accurate view of the legal profession.The glory of the U.S. jury system is supposed to be the placing of the administration of justice into the hands of the common people, but the actual trial utilizes lay citizens deliberately selected without any regard whatever for any expertise or academic or other competence, while at the same time extolling the expertise and upper-class intellect-ual and social status of the trial lawyers, and without the jurors having any say or knowledge whatsoever as to the size or propriety of the attorney’s fees, or of the effect of the fees on the parties in the case.This is ridiculous nonsense, certainly not contemplated in the English Common Law, or its courts, or its barristers, who originated this trial court system and operated it for 700 years, 500 of those years before the adoption of the Constitution of the United States, by the Founding Fathers, who were nearly all trained in the English Common Law, which, at that time, prohibited any barrister from charging anyone a cont-ingent fee, prohibited advertising in any form, and prohibited any barrister from forming a partnership with any other barrister. Even today barristers may not charge a percentage fee, but a reasonable fee may be contingent upon the outcome of the case in British courts.My only criticism of the proposed amendment is that it should not be confined to redressing the grievances of the medical profession, but should be made applicable to all civil damage actions except those for intentional torts, in which attorneys’ fees should also be disclosed and limited, as in all cases.

Corporate governance group adds members, targets Vodafone

first_imgInvestor body Shareholders for Change (SfC) has criticised telecoms giant Vodafone for its tax policy, in one of the group’s first actions since launching last year.True to SfC’s promise to “name and shame” one large company on tax policy, the collaboration of small European institutions published a report on the European telecommunication industry at its winter meeting in Paris.In the aptly named Bad Connection report, Vodafone was lauded for reporting country-specific data on its profit sources. Such a regional breakdown has been recommended by the OECD to counteract multi-national corporations minimising their taxable base and shifting profits between jurisdictions.While Vodafone’s transparency on that front was welcomed by the shareholder engagement group, it criticised the company for reporting most of its profits in Malta and Luxembourg, low-tax countries where Vodafone has the fewest employees. “A lack of transparency and shifting profits are a risk for all investors as this puts companies at risk of fines and investigations by tax authorities,” said Rainer Ladentrog, engagement manager at the Fair-Finance Vorsorgekasse, the Austrian founding member of SfC.He added that these tax policies had “deeper ethical repercussions” as they “often drastically reduced tax income both for emerging markets as well as developed countries”.Ethos joins SfCTwo new members were welcomed by SfC: Switzerland’s Ethos Foundation and the Friends Provident Foundation from the UK.Ethos is itself a shareholder engagement platform for around 230 Swiss pension funds with combined assets under management of CHF260bn (€231bn).In a statement Ethos, which was founded by pension funds in 1997, said joining SfC was an opportunity to “increase engagement activities with European companies on topics important to Swiss Pensionskassen” in their investments in international equities.The other new joiner was the Friends Provident Foundation with £33m (€36.6m) in assets under management and a 15-year track record of engaging with UK companies.SfC was founded in 2017 by seven smaller institutional investors from Germany, Italy, France, Spain and Austria, with around €22bn of assets under management in total.The platform wants to help smaller investors to be heard at annual general meetings or other engagement forums.last_img read more

Tottenham set for free run at £18m star

first_img Vecino, who moved to Inter in 2017, has been heavily linked with Everton and Chelsea, as well as Arsenal, in the past. The Daily Star claims that the 28-year-old – rated at £18million – was up for sale in January and linked with Tottenham as part of the deal that took Christian Eriksen to the Serie A. After a move failed to be done, however, the newspaper says that Inter are again prepare to sell him when the transfer window re-opens. Everton and Arsenal’s interest remains concrete but they are reportedly focusing on other targets, with Vecino down the pecking order in priority as it stands. Tottenham have also been contacted by the player’s representatives to see whether their interest is also concrete. Spurs boss Jose Mourinho and the club are weighing up a move, given that they could be undisturbed in their approach due to the reluctance from Arsenal and Everton. Tottenham could get a “free run” at a move for Inter Milan midfielder Matias Vecino with Arsenal among the other interested clubs focusing on other targets, according to a report. Indeed, Vecino, who has 41 caps for Uruguay, reportedly indicated in January that he would be interested in a move to Spurs. The midfielder has made 23 appearances for Inter this season, chipping in with three goals and one assist. Mourinho said last week that Spurs would not be spending vast sums on new players given the financial instabilities of the transfer market. He said: “My club, if you ask me what I want, I know it’s going to be sensible. read also:Levy tells Mourinho £20m Tottenham star must go to fund Willian move “It’s going to be balanced, it’s not going to spend rivers of money and we’re trying to respect the situation not just of football but in the world and society overall.” In other news, Tottenham have been told that they would be wise to sign Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona when his loan move from Bayern Munich expires at the end of the season.

VIDEO: Tyler Adams’ goal sends RB Leipzig to UCL semifinal

first_img To be fair to Atleti, it wasn’t any better for Leipzig — in fact, it was worse in the opening 45 minutes. To illustrate their inability to create scoring chances, let alone shots, a stat: despite holding more than 62 percent of possession at halftime, their four shots were taken by their defensive midfielder (1), a center back (1) and another center back (2). Atleti’s first chance of the game came in the 10th minute. Stefan Savic rose above the crowd to get his head to Renan Lodi’s floated free kick, but Peter Gulacsi managed to get both hands on the ball and keep it from crossing the goal line despite backpedaling and falling to the ground. Atleti’s best chance of the first half came when Yannick Carrasco went dangerously close to putting Atleti ahead in the 13th minute, but Gulacsi was quick to cover his near post and palm the ball wide. After starting brightly, it was virtual radio silence from Los Rojiblancos after that.
