As an elected official, this was a difficult budget to navigate. Alders unanimously agreed that we begin the process of budget deliberations earlier to determine equitable priorities for our City. We passed a balanced budget. After a break from its yearly release cycle, Assassin’s Creed makes a comeback in a new form that’s probably the biggest leap the franchise has taken since taking on the high seas in Black Flag. Set in Egypt, the game is filled with exotic locales that include the massive pyramids and of course the sand dunes that surround the cities. Ubisoft wants to make sure you explore every bit of their new offering since this time the game comes without a minimap.
Through an initiative called Connected Citizens, it has been partnering and sharing data with dozens of cities around the world to help streamline day to day traffic patterns and inform long term infrastructure decisions. In Boston, transportation officials pored through Waze data to find streets with rampant double parking and to hand out tickets to avoid backups. In Rio de Janeiro, the city is using Waze to help plan for the 2016 Olympics.
From Thursday 5 November, we will offer elderly and vulnerable customers and NHS and care workers with an NHS ID priority access to our stores. This means you can skip the queue at any time so that we can welcome you into our stores quickly and safely. We will continue to have socially distanced queuing systems in place outside our stores, supported by a greeter at the front of stores at busier times of day and we ask that you please queue at a safe distance of two metres apart..
Sediment components and redox properties change with oxic/anoxic condition, which affect the environmental transport of perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS). Herein, the influence of oxic/anoxic condition on the variation of redox and residual components of sediments, where organic matter, iron and manganese oxides are separated from the original sediment collected from Lake Taihu, China, are investigated. Meanwhile, the distinguishing sorption behaviors of PFOS on various residual sediments under oxic and anoxic condition are studied.
Startups generally have smaller, more manageable supply chains, so they can more easily shift away from polluting suppliers toward greener ones. On the other hand, smaller companies have a smaller impact because they sell fewer products, and often don have the resources to invest in new, cutting edge sustainable techniques fabric or sneaker recycling could possibly propel the entire fashion industry forward.Consider Everlane and Adidas, two companies I wrote about in a magazine story recently. They are both working to eradicate virgin plastic from their supply chains.
