Harde windvlaag maakt einde aan protest tegen windturbines

AMSTERDAM – Een demonstratie van Canadese inwoners van het dorpje Port Elgin tegen windenergie werd op een ironische manier door moeder natuur gedwarsboomd. Harde windvlagen met een snelheid van wel 100 kilometer per uur maakten een einde aan het protest.

“De windgoden waren tegen ons dit weekend, maar we gaan het later goedmaken”, zo verklaart organisator Greg Schmalz tegenover de Canadese krant The Star. Hij verklaart 60 tot 80 tractoren te verwachten en nog eens 80 versierde auto’s bij het volgende protest.

De demonstranten protesteren tegen een windpark langs het Huronmeer. Verder willen ze niet dat er een windturbine wordt gebouwd midden in de stad.

Volgens de inwoners van Port Elgin kunnen grote windturbines gezondheidsproblemen veroorzaken en zorgen ze voor de daling van de waarde van het vastgoed in het dorpje.

    A family friend wrote on social media that it was “not the way to show value and compassion to a patient“.

    The hospital says it “regrets falling short” of the family’s expectations.

    These three figures — William Rick Singer, Mark Riddell and Rudolph Meredith, respectively — are at the center of the nationwide scandal in which 33 parents are accused of using their wealth and means to help their children game the college admissions system.
    But those three names do not appear anywhere in the complaint text, though the document gives enough clues to make clear who is who. Instead, they are named as Cooperating Witness 1, 2 and 3, and each agreed to plead guilty and to cooperate with the government in the hope of obtaining leniency when they are sentenced, the complaint says.

Her parents were the Swedish king Gustavus Adolphus and his German wife, Maria Eleonora, had already had two daughters—a stillborn princess in 1620, and then the first Princess Christina, who was born in 1623 and died the following year.3] Excited expectation surrounded Maria Eleonora’s third pregnancy in 1626. When the baby was born, it was first thought to be a boy as it was “hairy” and screamed “with a strong, hoarse voice.”she later wrote in her autobiography that, “Deep embarrassment spread among the women when they discovered their mistake.” The king, though, was very happy, stating, “She’ll be clever, she has made fools of us all!”6] From most accounts, Gustav Adolf appears to have been closely attached to his daughter, and she appears to have admired him greatly.

    Despite residing in Germany for nearly 30 years, there are still some things I cannot wrap my mind around. I may have married a German, pay German taxes, and have German(-American) children, but I guess my US mentality still shines through.

    Like when it comes to personal space. I’ll be standing in the supermarket, in front of a shelf full of products, deliberating over the selection, and inevitably a hand will slip itself in front of my face and grab an item from the row. Many Germans seem to not have any qualms about this at all, but it still takes me aback sometimes.
