Manchester United’s Stars Revolt against Van Gaal Training Methods

Rabat – Manchester United’s Manager Loui Van Gaal is under fire as it was revealed that senior players have apparently revolted against him over his training methods.The Times reported on Thursday that a delegation of United’s senior players have confronted the Dutchman over what they believe are “stifling methods”.The seasoned stars report dissatisfaction since according to them Van Gaal’s approach to training is too “rigid” and does not allow to “express” themselves enough. The players said they no longer enjoy the game, adding that the squad felt they were being turned into “robots”.A separate report by the Daily Mail claimed the unhappy delegation was led by the United’s Captain Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick.The Times said that, after dressing-room talks, senior figures had approached the Dutchman several weeks ago “to raise complaints about a lack of creativity” and to express their concern that “training orders have become so inflexible that they are hampering performances.”This confrontation is reportedly linked to United’s stuttering start to the domestic campaign, in which the English club has scored three goals in four matches in the Barclays Premier League.Multiple British media reports said although Van Gaal listened to the players’ concerns, nothing has changed so far.© Morocco World News.

Steps are needed to speed up work of UN tribunals Security Council

Judge Navanethem Pillay of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda said the UN court might not complete the trials of current detainees before the year 2007 if its present capacity of nine judges remained unchanged. It might be able to reach that goal, she said, if the judicial capacity was increased through the use of ad litem judges, and if the Prosecutor drastically revised her investigative programme. Judge Pillay also expressed concern that the passage of time might affect the quality of evidence and that long delays raised human rights concerns. Noting that international judicial proceedings were far more complicated than those at the national level, Judge Pillay said that because of the alleged rank, status and roles of the accused, the trials took longer than those of lower-level suspects. Other factors, she said, were the voluminous documents, translation, the large number of witnesses, interpretation of testimonies into French and English, ongoing investigations, and the availability of witnesses and defence counsel. Judge Claude Jorda, President of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, said States must participate more in arresting and transferring major leaders indicted by the Tribunal so that it could go on prosecuting and trying them. Some military leaders and high-ranking officials still resided with total impunity in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, while others had taken refuge in the Republika Srpska, he said.The President outlined recent reforms which had sped up the court’s judicial activity. The Tribunal, already capable of hearing four trials at once, would add three new ad litem judges early next year, making it possible to hold six simultaneous trials daily. “This increase in judicial activity would not have been possible had it not been for the Member States’ closer cooperation with the International Tribunal and their increased participation in arresting the accused and gathering evidence,” he said, stressing that such cooperation “which is still too inconsistent, must continue.”Also addressing the Council, the Prosecutor of the two Tribunals, Carla del Ponte, outlined possible “exit strategies” to wrap up the work of each of the courts in the coming years. She also made a special appeal with regard to the former Yugoslavia for the Council “to insist upon the arrest of Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic, whose continuing liberty is an affront to the authority of this Council, and mocks the entire process of international criminal justice.”Representatives of over a dozen countries took part in a subsequent interactive dialogue with the Tribunal officials. read more

Calls for protection of earths climate heard at UN conference on global

“In my discussions with countries from around the world over the past eight months, it has become clear that there is a growing sense of the need for action,” said Canadian Environment Minister Stéphane Dion, President of the UN Climate Change Convention (UNFCCC) told delegates to its 11-day meeting yesterday in Montreal, Canada.The UNFCCC is the189-party framework convention that includes the signatories of the Kyoto agreement, the pact that requires 35 industrialized nations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions below 1990 levels between 2008 and 2012.”Individual citizens and their Governments have underlined their concerns about rising energy prices, energy security, and the growing scientific evidence of the impact of climate change,” Mr. Dion continued.He said that the thousands of delegates to the Convention, along with observers from environmental groups, scientific organizations, the business community and representatives of municipal, provincial and state governments will discuss ways to raise awareness and share best practices on reducing climate change.They will also, he said, explore new business opportunities from sustainable technologies and consider how to better prepare for the devastating impacts of climate change on human security, infrastructure, and natural resources. Richard Kinley, acting head of the United Nations Climate Change Secretariat in Bonn, Germany, called on Governments to give the 1997 Kyoto Protocol the necessary backing to generate more investment in climate-friendly technology.”The launch of the carbon market has provided effective incentive to the private sector and governments at all levels to reduce their environmental footprint,” Mr. Kinley said. “The Montreal Conference will help solidify those opportunities.””Alluding to the entry into force of the Kyoto Protocol in February 2005, he said, “It is a pleasure to celebrate the fact that the Protocol is up and running.”Around 100 ministers will attend the high-level segment of the Conference, beginning on Wednesday, which will be opened by the Prime Minister of Canada, Paul Martin, and the UN Deputy Secretary-General, Louise Fréchette. read more

Security Council extends for another year mandate of UN office in Burundi

In a resolution adopted today, the 15-member Council authorized the mandate of the UN Office in Burundi (BNUB), consistent with the views of the Government of Burundi, to be extended until 15 February 2014.The Council called on BNUB to support the Government in fostering inclusive elections in 2015 by continuing “to improve dialogue between all national actors, including civil society, and to guarantee a space for all political parties.” In a recent visit to Burundi, Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman discussed the upcoming electoral process with senior Burundian officials, including President Pierre Nkurunziza“We also talked about the way ahead, the role the UN can play, the role SRSG [Special Representative of the Secretary-General] Parfait Onanga-Anyanga and his team can play in helping the President, the Government and the people of Burundi achieve their aspirations for free, fair and inclusive elections,” Mr. Feltman had stated during the visit. The resolution stressed that the Government of the small Great Lakes country, with support from BNUB, must “redouble its efforts to pursue structural reforms aimed at improving political, economic and administrative governance and tackling corruption.” Council members emphasized that more action is needed to prevent human rights violations, in particular ongoing extrajudicial killings, politically-motivated killings, mistreatment of detainees and torture, and restrictions on civil liberties, and urged that those responsible are swiftly arrested and brought to justice. They noted the importance of enhancing capacity among national security services and the police through training on human rights and sexual and gender-based violence.The Council also urged the Government to work with its international partners to support the National Independent Human Rights Commission and the Office of the Ombudsmen, and to strengthen national civil society. The current UN political office in Burundi was set up in 2006 to assist efforts towards peace and stability after decades of factional and ethnic fighting between Hutus and Tutsis killed hundreds of thousands of people. The resolution urged the Government, with BNUB and partners, to establish transitional justice mechanisms, “including a credible and consensual Truth and Reconciliation Commission to help foster an effective reconciliation of all Burundians” in accordance with the 2009 national consultations, as well as the 2000 Arusha agreement. The Council has also requested a briefing on the situation in the country by the end of July. In the meantime, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has said he intends to field a strategic assessment mission to enable further consideration of the future UN presence in Burundi. read more

UN sanctions what they are how they work and who uses them

Using the ‘threat’ of sanctions A sanction’s life-cycle often starts with the Security Council taking up a situation of concern. The Council or the UN Secretary-General and his representatives will usually employ peaceful means to prevent the escalation, or outbreak of, conflict. At this stage, even the hint of Security Council sanctions may be enough to encourage conflict parties to enter into dialogue. This is sometimes what the Council means when it signals that it will “consider all measures at the Council’s disposal, including the use of enforcement measures.” Sanctions are meant to be a last resort when it comes to addressing massive human rights violations, curbing illegal smuggling or stopping extremism groups. Increasingly, sanctions are also being used to support peace efforts, to ensure that elections are held, or to demobilize armed groups. This ability stems from the UN Charter. Under Article 41 of Chapter VII, the Council can use enforcement measures not including weapons, such as “complete or partial interruption of economic relations and of rail, sea, air, postal, telegraphic, radio, and other means of communication, and the severance of diplomatic relations.” The first sanctions regime (or set of measures) was imposed in 1966 on Southern Rhodesia, today known as Zimbabwe.Imposing sanctions – the what, who and how Sometimes the threat of sanctions does not work, and it is up to the Security Council to decide to impose sanctions on individuals, entities or States who bear responsibility for conflict. At this stage, the Security Council adopts a resolution establishing a new sanctions regime, where it determines the precise sanctions measure – such as arms embargoes, assets freezes or travel bans, for example – that it is imposing on the situation. In some cases, the Council decides to also identify the individuals or entities that are subject to these ‘targeted’ sanctions measures. In other cases, the relevant Sanctions Committee, established as part of a sanctions resolution, will do so. The individuals or entities sanctioned can change – with new names being added or removed from the list.Implementing sanctions Sanctions Committees are subsidiary organs of the Council and are composed of all 15 of the Council’s members. Their role is to implement, monitor and provide recommendations to the Council on particular sanctions regimes. They meet regularly to consider reports from expert panels and to hold meetings with Member States, UN actors and international organizations. In some cases, an expert panel is created to assist the sanctions committee. An expert panel monitors the implementation of the sanctions measures and reports its findings to the committee, or in some cases directly to the Council. Expert panels are usually comprised of between five to eight technical experts, all of whom are appointed by the Secretary-General. Expertise in these panels depends on the sanctions imposed, but may include arms, natural resources or human rights/humanitarian experts. Of central concern to the Council is that sanctions are implemented with due regard for human rights. De-listing requests from the other sanctions committee are managed by the Focal Point for De-Listing. The post of Focal Point, which was established by resolution 1730 (2006), is based in the UN Department of Political Affairs.Ending a sanctions regime The Security Council can remove UN sanctions once a conflict situation improves. UN sanctions have been lifted in different ways. In some cases, benchmarks contained in sanctions resolutions have been achieved; in others, peace processes have achieved the desired outcome.

Football The quarter that defined JT Barretts career

Ohio State redshirt senior quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) throws a pass in the fourth quarter in the game against Penn State on Oct. 28. Ohio State won 39-38. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorThe score was 35-20, and there was just 13:13 left in the game. At seemingly the worst time, quarterback J.T. Barrett fumbled the football. It was an unlucky play at an unlucky time that nearly resulted in the game-sealing drive as Penn State began its drive with the ball at the Ohio State 42-yard line. Then something happened.Barrett was handed the football trailing by five points after leading his team on back-to-back touchdown drives in the fourth quarter. After four plays and with 1:48 remaining in the game, he found redshirt senior Marcus Baugh open in the end zone and hit him with a perfect pass over leaping linebackers Manny Bowen and Jason Cabinda to put Ohio State on top 39-38.Ohio State senior tight end Marcus Baugh (85) catches a touchdown pass in the fourth quarter that would put Ohio State over Penn State in the game on Oct. 28. Ohio State won 39-38. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorIn 12 minutes, Barrett went from being the goat of the game to having his Heisman-candidate moment and leading the Buckeyes to a miraculous comeback victory.And as head coach Urban Meyer stood answering questions at his postgame press conference with fans chanting “O-H,” “I-O” in the background as they exited the stadium, Meyer had nothing but the highest praise to levy on his three-time captain.“I don’t know if I’ve ever had more respect for a human being and as a person, because you earn respect and you witness people in very dire straits at times, tough situations,” he said. “I’ve never had a kid play perfect, but damn, he was close tonight.”The fourth quarter proved a tumultuous one for the Ohio State quarterback. In an attempt to hand the football off to freshman running back J.K. Dobbins, Barrett mishandled the snap, losing his grip on the football and costing his team possession. The fumble could have changed the narrative of this story entirely. Penn State could have capitalized on the opportunity, scoring a touchdown to make the game 42-27 and putting Ohio State’s championship hopes in the rearview mirror. “It’s one of those things, like, really J.T.? Right now? That’s not the best timing,” Barrett said after the game.At that moment, doubt began to creep into Meyer’s mind as the game was getting late and the Buckeyes were still down two scores.“The one fumble, I kind of thought, ‘uh-oh,’” Meyer said. That moment could have defined Barrett’s performance in one of the most important games of his career. He did not let that happen.Just after fumbling the football, Barrett was aided by Ohio State’s special teams, as cornerback Denzel Ward blocked a punt and linebacker Dante Booker recovered it at the Penn State 41-yard line. One play later, Barrett turned the excellent field position into seven points with a 38-yard pass to redshirt junior wide receiver Johnnie Dixon.The next Penn State drive saw the Nittany Lions march 64 yards down the field before being held to a field goal. Barrett responded by leading his team down the field for a 76-yard drive that resulted in seven points. A three-and-out by Penn State forced a punt, setting Barrett up for his game-winning drive.On the play, Baugh found himself wide open in the end zone with only a linebacker several yards away standing between him and his quarterback. Barrett delivered a perfect pass just over the leaping hands of the defenders to find his man and redefine his performance in the game.Ohio State redshirt senior quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) throws a pass in the fourth quarter in the game against Penn State on Oct. 28. Ohio State won 39-38. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo Editor“I was like, ‘Just put it over the linebacker and we score.’ And so I was able to do that,” Barrett said.Barrett made it sound easy, and throughout the game, he made his success look easy. He completed 33-of-39 passes, threw for 328 yards — including four touchdowns — and had rushed for 95 yards on 17 carries against a defense Meyer called, “the No. 1 defense in America.”Though the fourth quarter was Barrett’s shining moment, his teammates saw the same player all throughout the game — a leader, just as calm and composed trailing by 14 as he was ahead by one.“J.T. is the same all four quarters. He’s a smooth dude and he has a lot of confidence in us as playmakers and in himself,” redshirt junior wide receiver Terry McLaurin said. “He’s the epitome of a leader. He never got too high, never got too low. Even when we scored a touchdown and we needed another stop to score another touchdown, it was the same demeanor from him and that’s what made him great.”This game will prompt many superlatives to be lauded on him, and early award predictions to be made. Heisman Trophy candidate was thrown out by Meyer, Barrett’s teammates and Barrett himself. Meyer went so far as to call Barrett’s performance “one of the best I’ve ever seen a quarterback play.”Quarterback J.T. Barrett celebrates with fans in Ohio Stadium after the Buckeyes beat No. 2 Penn State 39-38 on Oct. 28. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorIn the team’s loss Week 2 against Oklahoma, fans were calling for Barrett to be replaced and questions arose as to whether he was capable of winning a big game. Behind closed doors, there was never any doubt to the players about whom their leader was. “With all due respect, people who had that opinion, in the Woody Hayes facility there wasn’t any opinion. There was zero conversation about that topic,” Meyer said. “When I hear people say, ‘Oh, there’s a lot of people thought —’ that’s not one time I’ve walked into a staff meeting saying, what do you guys think? What do the fans and media think about J.T.? We don’t talk about that.”Seven weeks ago, those fans chanting “O-H,” “I-O” were calling for Barrett to be benched. Now those same fans might be calling for him to win the Heisman Trophy. read more

Bulkan revokes Linden Town Clerks appointment

McGarrel noted in the letter that arising from the findings of this Committee, the Ministry is not in a position to endorse the No-Confidence Motion as it currently stands due to its procedural irregularities. He further advised that the Town Clerk shall be called upon to resume her functions as Town Clerk forthwith.Local Government CommissionMeanwhile, observers have raised concerns that the body which was constituted to address situations such as these, the Local Government Commission (LGC), has yet to become  operational, even though its eight members from the State and Opposition among others were chosen several months ago.Opposition Member of Parliament Juan Edghill was quoted in sections of the media today saying that “in absence of a Commission, this officer is left in the cold at the discretion of the sole politician…what we are seeing is not an administrative decision. It is a political decision.”Mentioning the findings of the COI into the Town Clerk’s investigation, Edghill posited “if there was an Investigative Committee and a report was submitted and the officer was cleared, then on what basis was her appointment revoked…no cause for the revocation was stated and no notice was given. This was a purely political decision.”Communities Minister Ronald BulkanBulkan had said- after promising the establishment of the LGC on multiple occasions prior and failing to deliver- that the Commission would be established this year.The LGC is provided for in Guyana’s Constitution via Article 78 (a).The Bill to enable the establishing of the Commission was passed in the National Assembly in August 2013 and in November that year received Presidential assent.The Commission’s functions, outlined at clause 13. (1) of the Act, says that the Commission shall have power to deal with all matters relating to the regulation and staffing of local government organs including employment and dismissal of staff and with dispute resolution within and between local government organs, and in particular, shall monitor and review the performance and implementation of policies of all local government organs, including policies of taxation and protection of the environment, among other powers. read more

Burglar strikes Mighty Bowl food truck at Clark College

first_imgMighty Bowl, one of Vancouver’s few food trucks, was burglarized late Wednesday or early Thursday at its location on the Clark College campus.Co-owner Steve Valenta said someone broke into the trailer and stole about $1,500, plus an iPad worth about $400 that is used as the company’s point-of-sale system.“It’s disappointing,” Valenta said. “It’s just a weird experience.”The truck is parked east of Hanna Hall and south of the library on the campus, 1933 Fort Vancouver Way.Kim Kapp, Vancouver police spokeswoman, said Mighty Bowl operators were asked to contact police to make a phone report to one of the department’s police service technicians.The company dishes out hundreds of bowls daily of piping hot brown rice and black beans topped with a variety of sauces at its Clark College location and from its original food truck. The company started serving its signature bowls more than a year ago and was billed as downtown’s first mobile food truck. This was the first time the business has been burglarized, Valenta said. Anyone with information about the burglary is asked to call 911.last_img read more

 Petersen was appointed a non-executive director of the Board of Time Out Group in February of last year, and will continue to serve in that role as she begins as CEO. Longtime journalist Walt Mossberg has announced his retirement with a note to his staff at Recode and The Verge. The note begins: “It was a June day when I began my career as a national journalist, I stepped into the Detroit Bureau of The Wall Street Journal and started on what would be a long, varied, rewarding career. I was 23-years-old, and the year was 1970. That’s not a typo.” He’s set to retire in June, after the Code Conference, which he co-founded.center_img Allison Davis is returning to New York’s vertical “The Cut” as a senior writer.

Meet the Trump administration official whose signature could formally open ANWR to

first_img“The benefits that they’ve achieved for their people are indisputable,” Balash said. “Whatever other issues one has about the environment, the climate, the behavior of oil companies — for the Inupiat people on the North Slope, it’s not all positive, there’s downsides. But on net: big, big benefits.” It’s 3,200 miles from Joe Balash’s office in Washington, D.C., to the Neets’aii Gwich’in community of Arctic Village, at the southern edge of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. But Arctic Village is barely 200 miles from North Pole, the Alaska town where Balash grew up. He eschews the bombast of some other Trump administration political officials. And during the confirmation process, in response to written questions from U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, D-Vermont, Balash said he believes that “climate change is not a hoax, and that man has an influence.” Balash and Padgett walk along the road between Arctic Village’s community hall and its gravel airstrip. (Photo by Nat Herz / Alaska’s Energy Desk) The Village | The Big Thaw: Ep. 1 Balash’s confidence in the government’s ability to protect the refuge’s wildlife, while allowing drilling, stems from what he’s seen elsewhere on the North Slope, he said: Caribou populations don’t appear to have been dramatically reduced by development at existing fields in Prudhoe Bay. Balash, 44, grew up in an Air Force family and moved to Alaska just before starting sixth grade. At high school on Eielson Air Force Base, outside Fairbanks, he was a three-time state wrestling champion known for his “grim countenance” before meets, according to a 1993 Anchorage Daily News story. Balash said the scale of oil production from the Arctic Refuge won’t be enough to make a difference on a global scale. And, he said, he assumes that an “enormous amount” of new oil and gas development will still be produced before the world stops depending on fossil fuels. “That will happen, and it will happen somewhere on this planet,” Balash said. He added, referring to the refuge: “It just so happens that in this particular place, we have very good reason to believe that there’s an enormous resource there and that we can develop it in a safe and responsible manner.” Joe Balash, left, walks toward a federal charter plane in June after a meeting between the Trump administration and tribal officials in Arctic Village, a Gwich’in community in Interior Alaska. At right is Chad Padgett, the top Bureau of Land Management official in Alaska. Balash is the Interior Department official leading the federal government’s planning process in advance of opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil development. (Photo by Nat Herz / Alaska’s Energy Desk) Such is the paradox of the Arctic Refuge debate on the ground, and of the task for Balash, who went to high school near Fairbanks and spent half a career working in Alaska state government — and occasionally advocating for drilling in the refuge — before moving to Washington. The big takeaway from his meeting, Balash said, is that the Gwich’in want to stay engaged in the planning process. Arctic Village, a Gwich’in village of about 150 people, sits at the southern boundary of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. (Photo by Nat Herz / Alaska’s Energy Desk) Balash sits with Padgett, left, and Steve Berendzen, the Arctic Refuge manager, during the meeting in Arctic Village. (Photo by Nat Herz / Alaska’s Energy Desk) But when Balash’s group walked in the door, they got a welcome that, if not warm, was far from chilly. There were handshakes and hugs, and as the meeting began, council members pointed out their houses, “in case you guys need anything, even after the meeting,” said Galen Gilbert, Arctic Village’s chief. One of Balash’s colleagues handed out sticks of homemade moose pepperoni brought from Anchorage. For lunch, the council prepared a buffet lunch of moose, caribou and pie — eaten as they implored Balash to protect the refuge’s integrity. To account for that, Balash said, the Trump administration is considering three different plans for development, all with at least some level of restrictions on drilling in the Porcupine herd’s core calving grounds. One option bans oil leasing in more than one-fourth of the total area that Congress opened to drilling; a second allows horizontal drilling but no surface disturbance in critical caribou habitat; and a third allows surface disturbance but restricts construction during calving season. The North Slope Borough has a $400 million budget, paid for almost entirely with property taxes on oil and gas infrastructure; it provides education, firefighters, police officers and other services to the region’s villages. Balash points to academic research that found dramatic increases in life expectancy in the area since production began at the North Slope’s Prudhoe Bay oil-fields. “The one thing that I wish more than anything is that the fear that people have about the consequences of this – I am confident that we are able to move forward here and not devastate the Porcupine caribou herd. I am absolutely convinced of that,” Balash said in an interview. “And if I weren’t, I would have very different feelings about this.” The Gwich’in are respectful, welcoming hosts, even as they see Balash as the arm of a government that, by opening the refuge to drilling, is pushing them aside and threatening their way of life. Balash, meanwhile, came to listen to the Gwich’in people’s fears and opinions directly, in hopes of accounting for them in the department’s plans for how and where development will be allowed in the refuge. That step will fulfill a longstanding dream of pro-development Alaskans like Balash, who have long lobbied Congress and presidential administrations to open the Arctic Refuge’s coastal plain to drilling. Environmental groups, Democratic lawmakers and the Gwich’in people successfully blocked those efforts for decades, until Donald Trump signed the GOP tax reform bill, which also allowed development in the refuge’s coastal plain. The area is 1.6 million acres, or slightly larger than the state of Delaware – though still less than 10 percent of the refuge’s overall area. “I sure feel like I’m doing more than checking the box here. I don’t know how to convince them of that,” he said. “At the end of the day I’m not sure I can. But I have to live with myself.” “I just really feel like their minds were already made up before they came into this,” she said. “Not to be too crude about it, but he goes into a village and realizes what that little outhouse out back is for,” Newman said in an interview. After moving to Alaska, Balash spent time with his father, “chasing salmon wherever his Subaru could take us,” he said during his confirmation hearing. He also started learning about the state’s Permanent Fund dividend program, which pays Alaska residents cash earned by an investment fund seeded with oil revenue. Those experiences, he said, helped form his view that “with the right approach, you can have responsible development without sacrificing clean air and water.” “I’ve had a couple of conversations with individuals about that, where they’ve said, ‘Come on, Joe, it’s your signature. You can make this okay, you can stop this from happening,’” Balash said in the interview, just before his charter flight took off from Fairbanks. “The reality is, Congress has passed a law. The president is fully behind that law and implementing it faithfully. And if I were to, for some reason, balk at that, I’d be replaced.” But, citing uncertainty about the refuge’s environment and ecology, he wouldn’t say development would stop if there was evidence that it was harming the population. Trump then appointed Balash to his Interior Department job in mid-2017. As assistant secretary for land and minerals management, he oversees agencies including the Bureau of Land Management and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (which oversees offshore oil drilling), with more than 10,000 employees and $1 billion in federal spending. The “fear” Balash referenced earlier pops up at Arctic Village meeting, where he sat, dressed in a red zip-up sweater and khakis, on a bench with his colleagues. The Gwich’in people’s subsistence lifestyle depends on the Porcupine caribou herd that commonly gives birth in the coastal plain; they see those drilling plans as a desecration. But Balash is certain that caribou and oil infrastructure can coexist. He also helped pass the controversial 2013 reduction in state oil taxes, Senate Bill 21, and he pushed legislation to ease permitting requirements for development projects, House Bill 77, that the Republican-led Senate ultimately rejected as too divisive. And when it’s over? “They’re still going to sue us,” he said.center_img Those benefits also extend to the state as a whole, since Alaska has collected and spent billions of dollars in oil revenue on its own government services. But coastal Alaska communities both on the North Slope and elsewhere in the state are also now facing expensive problems created by global warming, which scientists agree is driven by oil consumption. Balash is a top Trump administration official, the assistant secretary for land and minerals management at the U.S. Interior Department. He was confirmed in December 2017 – the same month Congress voted to open a portion of the refuge to oil development. “He actually is making, in my mind, a good-faith effort to meet people, to talk with them, and at least attempt to try to find ways to address their concerns,” Newman said. “We’re not just fighting for caribou. We’re fighting for polar bears and all (the) species of birds,” Jerald John, one of the council members, told Balash’s group. “Where are these birds going to go once you disturb their natural habitat?” When Parnell lost his re-election in 2014 to independent Bill Walker, Balash took a job as chief of staff to newly-elected GOP U.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan, who was Parnell’s natural resources commissioner while Balash was the deputy commissioner. In the same way, Newman added, “the Gwich’in folks are not rolling over. They’re not conceding defeat. And they’re not just going to sit down and cut a deal and say, ‘All right, this has happened. How can we benefit from it?’” At the natural resources department — Balash’s highest-profile job before being appointed by Trump — he advanced and defended Parnell’s pro-development policies and was a fierce political advocate for his Republican boss, occasionally penning opinion pieces to fend off the administration’s critics. “I don’t think it has swayed him, or changed his mind,” he said. Balash’s on-the-ground presence and familiarity with Alaska does make a difference, said Matt Newman, an Anchorage-based attorney for the Native American Rights Fund who’s working with the Gwich’in tribal governments. Like Balash, Newman grew up in North Pole, and Balash’s brother Luke was one of Newman’s high school teachers. On his second day on the job, he said, he was personally tasked by Interior Secretary David Bernhardt – then the deputy secretary – with ensuring the refuge oil lease sale moves ahead. It’s likely that when the federal government formally signs off on the required environmental review later this year, Balash will be the one holding the pen. Balash’s initial experience with the politics of the Arctic Refuge came around that time, in a high school government class. He chose the development debate as the subject for a current events paper, and his conclusion, he said, was that “we Alaskans could get it right.” Balash’s first job in politics came through a church friend of his father’s: former Republican state legislator Gene Therriault. After eight years as a legislative aide, he was hired as a special assistant to Sarah Palin after she was elected governor, then worked as deputy commissioner and commissioner of the Department of Natural Resources under Palin’s successor, Sean Parnell. “I think the question in that scenario would be: What’s going on with the herd? And what changed? Is it that the herd is just migrating somewhere else? Or is the herd getting smaller?” Balash said. “There would be a number of things that you’d have to look at.” What Balash is not considering, though: The Gwich’in people’s demand that drilling not take place at all. When Balash’s charter plane, filled with an all-white delegation of federal officials, landed on Arctic Village’s gravel runway in June, there was no one to meet them at the airport — instead, they walked the half-mile in the spring sunshine to the village’s community hall, where they were scheduled to meet with the local tribal government. Newman, in an interview, said he believes Balash and his colleagues are sincere in their effort to accommodate the Gwich’in people’s concerns. “If you don’t bring certain key players, institutions, communities along, just because you have the power for the moment doesn’t mean that that decision or that policy is going to stand the test of time,” he said. But Balash also acknowledges that the refuge and the Porcupine herd have different characteristics from the environment and caribou on the rest of the North Slope. Farther to the west, where oil infrastructure already exists, there’s more room for caribou to roam between the mountains and the ocean. In the refuge, that space is narrower. He added: “After digging into the details, and with the benefit of sitting down for literally hours and days with our biologists and other experts, I’m convinced that we can fashion a program here that is going to allow the Porcupine caribou herd to continue to migrate, to continue to procreate and continue to sustain the Gwich’in people.” Tonya Garnett, a Gwich’in leader at the Arctic Village meeting, is less convinced of Balash’s sincerity. In an interview afterward, she said she feels drilling proponents are “just trying to check the boxes” during the planning process. In Arctic Village, Gwich’in leaders say the fight to stop drilling in the Arctic Refuge isn’t over Nonetheless, Balash is a believer in oil development — in the way it can bring, and has already brought, critical infrastructure and cash into the isolated Alaska Native Inupiat villages on the North Slope. But, Newman added, the Gwich’in people’s message only goes so far with Balash. In spite of that message, Balash’s “core belief” that oil development and caribou can co-exist remains unshaken, Newman said. For the only moment over the course of a long day, Balash seemed irritated when asked about that comment, as he stepped off his federal charter plane back in Fairbanks. In those jobs, Balash said in the interview, one of the things he learned was, “sometimes you shouldn’t do something just because you can.” For this government-to-government consultation, Balash is on Gwich’in turf — the community hall is hung with heart-shaped signs celebrating caribou. His Interior Department colleagues noted it’s rare for such a high-ranking official to make multiple in-person trips to tribal meetings in rural Alaska, as Balash has done as part of the planning process for development in the refuge. “There’s no mustache-twirling villains here. There’s no antagonists in the traditional storytelling sense,” Newman said. Balash, he added, is not in Arctic Village “just to say: ‘To hell with you people, we’re drilling.’” Arctic Village residents participate in a caribou leg-skinning contest earlier this year. (Photo by Elizabeth Harball / Alaska’s Energy Desk) The comments about the refuge’s bird species by John, the tribal council member, made an impression on Balash; he said he’d be taking a “harder look” at some of the proposed drilling restrictions intended to protect birds.last_img read more
