Bryant has taken several visits over the past few months, but one program he is considering might not be the most welcoming place.This season is one that the Miami Hurricanes would like to forget, especially considering the inconsistent play at quarterback. In an effort to improve at that position, head coach Mark Richt is seeking options to upgrade his offense, which includes Bryant.However, the recent news of scheduling a visit with the graduate transfer is stirring trouble with some players on the roster.On Monday night, running back Lorenzo Lingard posted a cryptic tweet. He isn’t alone in that field, as Jarren Williams isn’t a fan of the recent news.From the Sun-Sentinel:“They say it’s business. I believe in my QBs … Anything possible with opportunity but loyalty is the code? … I forgot its business,” Lingard posted in a tweet that has since been deleted. He added a laughing emoji and the words “#Same opinion free.”Freshman quarterback Jarren Williams, one of the jewels of the Hurricanes’ 2018 recruiting class and the player many believe could be Miami’s quarterback of the future, chimed in, quote-tweeting Lingard’s post and writing “Real talk,” an indication he agreed with Lingard’s sentiment.Now, Richt will have to balance making an immediate upgrade with keeping his future core content.In the event that Bryant does choose the Hurricanes, it’ll be worth monitoring how the other quarterbacks react.last_img read more

Solid Energys expertise in managing mine water recognised

first_imgSolid Energy’s progress and expertise in managing mining’s impacts on water have been recognised with two recent awards from Water New Zealand. The company (a coal miner) won the organisation’s Ronald Hicks Memorial Award for 2012 for its research paper, Addressing the environmental effects of mining on the Ngakawau River.  The award is for an article or paper considered significant in solving or clarifying New Zealand water pollution or sewage treatment problems.  Written by Dr Paul Weber, Solid Energy’s Environmental R&D Manager, the paper was presented by Mark Pizey, General Manager Environment.  “It’s a great outcome for the company and the mining industry” says Pizey. Another paper, by Solid Energy Environmental Scientist Fiona Crombie and Dr Weber, detailing research and development of a system to treat acid mine drainage with recycled waste shell from the mussel farming industry, was also recognised by Water New Zealand as a significant contribution to water management.Both papers detail elements of work by Solid Energy over the last seven years to find and develop sustainable methods to minimise the impacts of the company’s opencast mining on the Ngakawau River in the Buller District.  In 2005, after discussions with the neighbouring communities, Solid Energy agreed a set of water-quality measures for the river which it aimed to meet within five years, including ensuring the water chemistry returned to a state which again made the river attractive to migratory whitebait.The company then embarked on a wide-ranging programme of prevention and treatment at Stockton open-pt mine – changes to the way work is planned and carried out at the mine to prevent or minimise the amount of clean rainwater becoming acidic or mixed with sediment or coal fines, and appropriately treating and monitoring any water which has been impacted by mining before it is released into the Ngakawau River system.Seven years later the results are encouraging.  For some time the company has been regularly meeting or exceeding the water-quality standards, although some challenges still remain with clarity.  As well, good runs of whitebait are regularly being reported in the Ngakawau River.  A recent fish stock survey by environmental consultants Golders suggests the small native fish are in the river in much larger overall numbers than when a similar survey was done in 2005 and a greater proportion of younger fish are now successfully returning from the sea and making their living in a wider distribution throughout the river and its tributary streams.“Our licence to mine, the ability to operate in the future as a mining company, is based in large part on our environmental performance” says Pizey.  “It’s very encouraging to receive this recognition from our peers in water management and supports our belief that the methods we have researched and developed have wider application here and internationally.”last_img read more
