Fashion Square expansion planned

first_img“It’s being worked on with staff and officials,” she said. The expansion is part of Westfield’s business model to reinvest in its property, Dickey said. Currently, the mall is anchored by a Macy’s and a Bloomingdale’s. The company has not announced any new retailers. The company is waiting for approvals from the city, a process that could take months. The center covers 840,000 square feet in its current configuration. The latest application seeks approval to add 170,000 square feet; Westfield already obtained approval in 1994 to add 110,000 square feet of retail space. New mall space would replace part of a two-story parking deck at the east end of the property, while a new, five-story parking deck would be built next to Macy’s. Plans call for four new restaurants and a revamped food court, similar to the upscale dining terrace at Westfield Topanga in Canoga Park. The proposal also outlines a new mall entrance from Riverside Drive, just east of Matilija Avenue. Construction would take 24 months to 36 months, Dickey said. City Councilwoman Wendy Greuel, who represents the area and chairs the council’s Transportation Committee, termed traffic around Fashion Square a “disaster.” A solution lies in listening to locals, she said. “I am cautiously optimistic that if they move forward working with us in the community, they can design ingress and egress that will improve the traffic there” and benefit the neighborhood, she said. Art Howard, president of the Studio City Residents Association, said residents in communities surrounding the mall are also worried about busy streets. “If there is a lot more business, there will be a lot more traffic going there,” said Howard, “and they will be using our streets.” [email protected] (818) 713-3735 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SHERMAN OAKS – The Westfield Group is planning a big expansion at Westfield Fashion Square, and residents worry that it will further clog already congested streets. By building south toward the 101 Freeway, Westfield would add 280,000 square feet and 80 stores to the 120 stores already there. The $200 million proposal, which would increase the mall’s size by one-third, is prompting residents’ concerns about traffic jams on Riverside Drive, Hazeltine Avenue and Woodman Avenue. “That project has insufficient mitigations for the project of that size,” said Ellen Vukovich, a member of the Sherman Oaks Homeowners Association board. The company disagrees. Westfield officials have factored in community concerns about the traffic flow and plan new left-turn lanes, traffic lights and signs, said spokeswoman Katy Dickey. last_img read more

ID Kills Darwin with Kindness in Town Hall

first_imgExclusive  The Darwinists may have gotten the headlines with their lawsuit to stop intelligent design in a local high school (see 01/19/2006 story), but the townspeople of Frazier Park, California showed warm support for ID in person.  A town hall advertised in the local paper and sponsored by one of the area churches packed out the community center with some 250 people eager to hear more about intelligent design.  Most seemed to be from local churches, but several town officials, reporters and some families of the lawsuit plaintiffs were present.    After the showing of the film Unlocking the Mystery of Life, a panel of scientists and teachers supporting ID took questions from the audience.  No one was hostile or confrontational; if anything, the anti-ID people seemed rather timid or just sat quietly.  An independent filmmaker gathered footage for a documentary he wants to make on the ID controversy in America.  A reporter for the local paper said he came expecting to hear religious arguments for the existence of God, but was surprised by the quality of the scientific arguments for intelligent design and found them convincing.  His staff also were impressed by how polite and friendly the pro-ID people were.One point made clear was that this was an opportunity for people to learn about ID and to open the door for rational discussion on this issue in a pleasant, non-confrontational manner.  The pastor who acted as MC did not lead in prayer or create any religious pressure, but broke the ice by thanking them all for coming, humorously congratulating them for getting their small town in the national spotlight, and inviting them to share their questions.  Panel members stayed on topic about what ID is.  Though religious or philosophical implications are important on both sides of the debate, the panelists were careful to stick to the issue of whether design from intelligent causes can be approached scientifically.  Church volunteers brought tables of refreshments and a bookseller had a table full of ID books and videos for sale; another table contained handouts on ID topics found on the Discovery Institute website.    This could be a great idea for your home town.  Organize a town hall on intelligent design and show one of the Illustra Media films.  These quality productions say most of what needs to be said.  Have handouts, serve some food, make some books and videos available for sale, and get some knowledgeable teachers or scientists to take a few questions.  You could well get a big crowd of interested people, like the little town of Frazier Park did.    The Darwinists may have felt outnumbered on this occasion, but if so, they were overpowered only by friendly and gracious people.  Another producer was overheard to say that in his experience Christians and pro-ID people tended to be likeable, compared to pro-Darwinists who tend to be “loud, aggressive, insecure and unlikable, or just hopelessly naive.”  Every effort was made to give opponents a sympathetic hearing.  The emphasis of the meeting was to define what intelligent design is, and to learn more about it, without pressure or confrontation.  The film was extremely effective.  Afterwards, you could almost sense that any antagonists would have felt sheepish trying to contradict the arguments made so effectively.  They seemed to have been caught off guard.  The ID they learned about was apparently much more scholarly, well-reasoned and attractive than what they may have read in the newspapers.    This is what needs to be done from the grass roots up.  One of Phillip Johnson’s books is entitled, Defeating Darwinism by Opening Minds.  Let’s open some minds, shall we?(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Science Grab Bag

first_imgHere’s a random assortment of things floating around in the science news media – some fascinating, some informative, some disgusting.  We’ll let the readers decide which is which.  Since it’s Friday the 13th, a day to enjoy like any other day, we’ll give you a baker’s dozen to sample.Optical illusion:  You won’t believe your eyes at this optical illusion posted on New Scientist.The Science of Tebow:  Watch Stephanie Pappas on Live Science explain the Tim Tebow phenomenon from a naturalistic perspective.  Can Tebow pray for her?Drunken sailor in your muscles:  A walking machine in your cells does the sidestep, explains Science Daily.The Plantimal:  It’s half plant and half animal, claims New Scientist, playing “merry hell” with our classification systems.  “The division between plants and animals is collapsing completely.”Spider clothes:  This is really noteworthy.  “Eighty people collected, harnessed, and released wild spiders” in Madagascar “every day to produce enough silk” to make some clothes, reports the BBC News in a slide show worth watching.  Did you know spider silk is golden yellow?Saturnalia:  Browse through the 10 biggest discoveries from the Cassini mission to Saturn in 2011 (Jet Propulsion Laboratory).Reagan vindicated:  Remember the laughter when Ronald Reagan said trees cause acid rain?  Now read this.  PhysOrg confirms that trees cause 90% of it.Microribbit:  The world’s tiniest frog has been discovered in New Guinea (BBC News), so small a dime is a large lilypad for it.  It’s a contender for the world’s smallest vertebrate.Wonder machines of the nucleus:  Helicases drive down DNA strands covering hundreds of bases per second without falling off.  Let Live Science tell you how (100% Darwin-free).Weird dinosaur:  This otherwise fierce-looking dinosaur would never win an arm-wrestling contest (PhysOrg).Breath of life:  Evolutionists have their Genesis stories, too: this one on Live Science uses “may have” and “appeared” in classic Darwin storytelling style, alleging that a complex protein “appeared” to give life its first breath.  Invokes the mythical Great Oxygenation Event (see 1/09/2012 commentary).Babel artifact:  Fox News showed a photo of pictorial cuneiform inscription that shows King Nebuchadnezzar II and a ziggurat, with the Babylonian king’s own words.  Readers can decide whether it (1) refers to a historical Tower of Babel, (2) inspired the Biblical story of the Tower of Babel, as the article claims, or (3) none of the above.  (Hint: If professor Todd at BiblePlaces believed it, he would have said so.)Apps for apes:  New Scientist informs us that orang-utans at the Milwaukee County Zoo seem fascinated by iPads, provided they can’t take them with them into the cage.  They like to use the finger-painting apps.  Buried in the article: “If they got a hold of it, they’d take it apart… Orang-utans pee on everything.” Don’t expect an ape-designed app any time soon.We hope you enjoyed this piñata of news nuggets.  For every post on CEH, hundreds of headline titles are scanned from science journals and science media outlets, a few dozen are noted, and one to a dozen are reported on.  This takes a lot of time and effort.  If you appreciate this service, consider donating to support it, posting comments, and promoting it on your social media any way you can.  Use the convenient buttons below to spread the word.(Visited 37 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Dept urges action on fuel security

first_img20 June 2008A senior official from the Department of Minerals and Energy has urged members of Parliament to approve the construction of a new multi-product pipeline between Durban and Gauteng province in order to avoid future liquid fuel shortages in the country.The department has also recommended to Cabinet several changes to improve South Africa’s capacity for streamlining its oil demand, which could involve costs of up to R1-billion – much of which would have to be carried by the fuel industry.Addressing the media in Cape Town this week, deputy director-general for hydrocarbons and energy planning in the department, Nhlanhla Gumede, warned that the costs to the economy would be far higher if the recommendations were not implemented, as South Africa could end up facing a liquid fuels shortage.He pointed out that by 2025, South Africa’s energy demands were likely to have doubled, with the country importing far more than it currently produces. The country had run out of surplus refining capacity by the end of 2006, he told Parliament.Fuel reservesOutlining a number of factors placing pressure on supply ahead of the completion of a new pipeline from Durban to Gauteng by 2010, Gumede said South Africa currently had capacity for only about eight to 10 days’ of fuel storage.In the case of airlines, the storage times were even shorter, with OR Tambo International Airport, for instance, having only five days’ of storage capacity. The international best practice standard is 30 days’ of stored fuel supply.Proposed solutions to this tight supply situation include enforcing obligatory stock holding levels in the airline industry, with every “customer group” being made to pay for its own stock holding.If nothing is done about the current situation, road freight would be severely over-utilised, said Gumede, outlining a scenario by 2010 where road tankers carrying fuel from the port of Durban to the country’s industrial heartland of Gauteng would be at the rate of more than 10 an hour.By the third quarter of 2009, South Africa would not be able to supply inland demand unless major changes were made, he said.The new pipeline being laid between Durban and Gauteng will have an initial capacity of 1 100 cubic metres of fuel per hour, rising to about 3 000 cubic meters of fuel per hour by 2025, when all pump stations along the Durban-Gauteng route are completed.Improving rail freightHowever, the rail system would have be to be improved in the meanwhile to ensure security of supply, with a proposal for a consolidation of the network by using, for instance, block trains as well as route substitution.The turnaround time for a container travelling from Durban to Johannesburg and back is currently around 14 days, said Gumede, adding that this needed to be reduced to four days, with an ideal of two days over the longer term.The country currently had “no choice” but to reduce this turnaround time down to four days at the most, he said, adding that investments in infrastructure such as rail sidings would have to be made to make this possible, with the additional costs to be carried by the oil industry.Other solutionsOther changes would also be needed, such as increased overtime and weekend work, while the government would need to examine the question of a more efficient rail system in the light of the country’s competition law.Outlining other possible solutions to refining capacity, Gumede said that while South Africa had a substantial capacity to manufacture coal-to-liquid fuels, a new coal-to-liquid plant – such as those operated by Sasol – would be needed every three to four years to supply 85 000 barrels of fuel per day.The Department of Minerals and Energy has also recommended that at least 30% of the country’s petroleum products be made from indigenous raw materials, be it from gas-to-liquid technology, biofuels or coal-to-liquid technology.In the meantime, the approval and implementation of the Multi-Product Pipeline Project was “a matter of urgency”, Gumede told members of Parliament.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more
