A Concert For A Greener Good

first_imgThis Saturday, Share the Harvest Farm will host its fundraiser music event on the greenest day of the year, St. Patrick’s Day. The benefit, held from 7 to 9 PM at The Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett, will raise money to feed local families in need.The East Hampton-based organization prides itself on growing high-quality produce, through sustainable farming practices, and donating it to local food pantries. Its mission is also to increase the availability of healthy products and raise awareness about food insecurity on the East End.Concertgoers will hear live performances by Fred Raimondo, Inda Eaton, Nancy Remkus, Sarah Greene, Cynthia Daniels, Job Potter, and Rorie Kelly. It is Share the Harvest Farm’s first spring fundraiser.“Springtime is the most crucial time for our farm to fundraise, as this is the time of the year that we are beginning to sow our seeds and plant our dreams, none of which would be possible without the financial help of our wonderful community,” said Melissa Mapes, Share the Harvest’s director of community outreach and education. The organization has 15 to 20 year-round volunteers, welcoming more during donation days.This is the time of year when seeding preparation begins for the summer growing season. Share the Harvest Farm plants crops based on the needs of local organizations which lean towards a vegetarian diet. Crops range from asparagus to zucchini and every veggie in between.Board member Maxwell Plesset coordinated the event, but an overall team effort is working to make it a success, Mapes noted.“Supporting your local farms is crucial for any community, as it helps to build up local economy and decrease the amount of carbon emissions by avoiding the long transit of grocery store items,” she said.“Eating local is so much more experiential as you sit and chat with the farmers about what they grow. Honestly, the food tastes way better when it is harvested the same day from the same sliver of earth you walk on every day. We are so grateful to have that experience ourselves and find that it is very important for us to share that with all members of our community. Access to local healthy foods should be a right to all, not a privilege only for a select few,” Maples expressed.In a single week, the farm donates to approximately 450 families through more than 10 different organizations. It’s become increasingly apparent that as the cost of living continues to rise, so does the number of persons afflicted by food insecurity, specifically lack of affordable nutrition.The event perfectly coincides with March being National Nutrition Month.Sponsors of the fundraiser are Whitmore’s Landscaping, Weber and Grahn Air Conditioning and Heating, ZOE Builders, and the Malafronte Family Partnership.The Stephen Talkhouse is located on 161 Main Street in Amagansett. Tickets are $20 at the door.Volunteers can sign up to hand pick vegetables for the farm-to-community website, or make donations to purchase seeds on its website www.sharetheharvestfarm.org. Follow the farm on social media @sharetheharvestfarm.Be on the lookout for the organization’s annual summer BBQ fundraiser during the first week of August.Nicole@Indyeastend.com@NikkiOnTheDaily Sharelast_img read more

A Week Like No Other

first_imgThe azaleas are beautifully in bloom in Augusta this week, and I’m pretty sure we all wish we could be there. As a possible distraction from being sheltered in place, please accept my invitation to take a little drive with me down Magnolia Lane as I dig into my Masters Memories Vault.I was blessed to cover the Masters for nearly five decades, and there are many memories and highlights tucked away. It’s well known that The Masters has its own unique way of doing things. My two all-time favorites took place in 1986 and 1995.I will save the best for last and tell you first about my times in 1995. I am lucky enough to have many friends that live in Austin, Texas, and are members of the Austin Country Club. Back then, the head professional was the highly-respected Harvey Penick. His two best players at the time were Tom Kite and Ben Crenshaw, both of whom he had taught from their teens through their professional careers. By the way, in the running for the worst golfer ever taught by the legendary Harvey Penick . . . yours truly.On the Sunday before The Masters week began — April 2, 1995 — 90-year-old Harvey Penick passed away. His funeral services were set for Wednesday, April 6, the day before play was to begin. Both Kite and Crenshaw served as pallbearers in the Austin ceremony.Crenshaw had won The Masters in 1983 but in 1995 his game was far from being in good form. He began with very little confidence and with a very heavy heart.His opening round of 70 was solid, but three shots off the lead held by David Frost. He came on strong in the second round with an impressive five-under-par 67. At the halfway point, he trailed by two, but a 69 on Saturday moved Crenshaw into a four-way tie for the lead. He felt strongly he was receiving inspiration from his longtime instructor and friend. Then, as if by divine intervention, a final-round 66 edged Davis Love by a stroke and Crenshaw collected his second Green Jacket.During my exclusive interview with this very popular winner, I asked Crenshaw what role Penick played in his victory. With tears rolling down his cheeks, Crenshaw said, “Harvey was the 15th club in my bag.” To this day, that quote is considered to be one of the best quotes in golf, and Crenshaw now has a golf radio show on SiriusXM using that same name. Certainly, it was an honor for me to be the first to whom he said those now iconic words.Now, before I share the memories of what many call the Mona Lisa of The Masters — the 1986 Jack Nicklaus improbable victory — let me explain a little Masters tradition.As our broadcast team was enjoying our pre-tournament dinner, I announced my plan to sign up to play the course on the Monday after. My understanding was that the first 25 members of the media to sign up would get to play. Lucky for me, a savvy media member was part of our team dinner and told me that if I wanted to be in that first 25, I needed to be outside the main gate no later than midnight. As expected, I wasn’t the only one lined up as the gate opened. Despite executing the plan to perfection, I was still 12th in line, but good enough to play on Monday. What a thrill it was, and I managed to break 80!That glorious Sunday afternoon before, little did we know that Jack Nicklaus was about to turn back the clock. He had already won the Masters five times, and not many people considered him to be a serious threat, certainly not after recording eight straight pars to start the final round. It seemed Nicklaus had no chance. But then, somehow, someway, the Golden Bear Magic kicked in, and he began making his move. The Golden Bear was on the prowl with birdies on 9, 10, and 11. Adding to this dreamlike setting was that his son, Jackie, was his caddie.The roars cascading through the Georgia pines was some of the loudest ever heard at Augusta. That glorious Sunday, Nicklaus fired a back nine of 30 to do the impossible and win his sixth Green Jacket.At the time, it was one of the biggest stories in golf history, and remains that today.So, no Masters this week, but what a great one to pull together and pray for all that are suffering. Remember, this too shall pass.bobvoiceofgolf@gmail.com Sharelast_img read more

Owner of Missing Weimaraner Afraid Dog May Have Been Stolen

first_imgAlex Berg shown here with Jeff, a missing 1-year-old Weimaraner. IndyEastEnd.com/Courtesy photoPhil Berg and his entourage of dogs is a common sight in Montauk, whether he is in downtown Montauk or Eddie Ecker Park. After all, Berg and his Viking helmet was well-known for riding with one of them in a basket on his motorcycle.But now, one of those dogs has disappeared, and Berg is fearful that it has been stolen.The missing 1-year-old Weimaraner, named Jeff, actually belongs to his son, Alex, who is away at law school.Phil Berg likes to take his dogs — two Weimaraners he owns and two others that come from the same litter that he is looking after — in his van to the park at the end of Navy Road. “They all went for a run last Thursday,” Berg said on Thursday. Jeff got separated from the pack. “He must of chased a deer,” Berg said.The other dogs returned, but not Jeff. After a few days of searching, Berg brought in a woman who specializes in tracking missing dogs. Using a Belgian Malinois, she followed Jeff’s path into the woods, north of the park, around the recycling center and across Montauk Highway. The trail led to Lincoln Road, near the Seafarer’s Cottages. There, the track stops cold, as if someone in a car picked the animal up and drove off.Berg hopes that whoever did it was genuinely trying to save the dog and not just steal it. He is offering a reward for its return.  The Bergs can be reached at either 631-379-7500 or 619-301-9610.The missing dog poster.t.e@IndyEastEnd.com Sharelast_img read more

Key Industry Players Team Up to Develop Offshore Leak Detection Systems

first_imgLeak detection is a considerable challenge facing the industry and DNV GL has therefore taken the lead in establishing a new Joint Industry Project. Twenty key industry players are partnering to develop a best practice for designing and implementing offshore leak detection systems.Joint Industry Project to enhance the offshore leak detection approachOver the last few years, following several oil releases, there has been an increasing focus by both operators and authorities on the environmental impact related to offshore oil and gas activities. This is especially an issue that needs to be addressed now since society’s tolerance for leaks is dropping and we are moving into the Arctic and other environmentally sensitive areas. Hydrocarbon leak detection systems are a requirement on the Norwegian Continental Shelf but authorities around the world are also increasingly demanding such systems for new field developments.There are various leak detection sensors available but they all have limited coverage and application areas. Some sensors will only detect gas, some cover a small area with high sensitivity while others cover a large area with low sensitivity. The challenge is to integrate these into a complete system that provides the required coverage and sensitivity while at the same time avoiding frequent false alarms.In addition, leak detection methods and techniques have been available in the market for several years, but there are still gaps to be closed concerning the design, engineering, commissioning and operation of these systems to ensure their proper performance.The industry is coming together to find the right solutionsTwenty companies and regulators are participating in DNV GL’s Joint Industry Project (JIP) on Offshore Leak Detection.According to one of the partners, Lundin Norway, there is a great need to further develop these systems. “Today, it’s difficult to get a good system with a demonstrated track record that covers an entire field, both subsea and on the surface. There’s a strong need for a common approach so that the operators and suppliers can jointly improve these systems. We also need to define reasonable specifications and requirements. It’s equally important to consider how different technologies can be integrated into a system that is practical for the end user,” says Arnljot Skogvang at Lundin.DNV GL’s Business Development Manager for Subsea, Christian Markussen, says: “I’m really glad to see the strong participation from key industry players, but the JIP would benefit from having even more operators, integrators and subsea suppliers.”The Joint Industry Project is aiming highMarkussen explains that the overall aim is to ensure safe and environmentally sound operations by limiting hydrocarbon spills through detecting acute discharges, with a high level of certainty, at the earliest possible stage. A planned outcome will be a DNV GL Recommended Practice that addresses the leak detection system through all the lifecycle phases of offshore development projects. The project will define relevant functional requirements and general specifications for a leak detection system as well as developing a methodology for designing an integrated system, including surface and subsea technologies.DNV GL is facilitating this JIP, combining industry experience with the competencies and expertise of the Subsea Technology and Environmental Risk Assessment sections at the DNV GL Oil & Gas office at Høvik, Norway.Operators: Lundin, BP, ENI, Petrobras and GDF SuezIntegrators: FMC TechnologiesSuppliers: NAXYS, Biota Guard, SonarDyne, VisSim, Stinger, Phase, Kongsberg, Norbit, Contros, Metas and KSATObservers: Norwegian Oil & Gas, Norwegian Ministry of Climate and Environment and the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway.Press Release, March 18, 2014; Image: Eni Norgelast_img read more
