Border wall will only serve to divide us

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionWe often rely on simple approaches to understand strangers around us.One approach is to try to understand who and what a person admires and imitates. Another is to admit that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so don’t play judge.A major item that is coming up for debate this year is the border wall between our nation and Mexico.Border walls have a very long and questionable history. Most have failed in their goals. They’ve defined national borders, kept hostile enemies at bay, and prevented their own citizens from fleeing.An example we all know would be what many Westerners called “Wall of Shame,” or the Berlin Wall. What did it say about its builders and what they thought of people? Does our president admire the Berlin Wall?Switching to beauty being in the eye of the beholder, who doesn’t swell with patriotic pride at the sight of the Statue of Liberty? In contrast, I remember driving along the towering and threatening wall near Tijuana and wondering why Mexican nationals are treated like criminals. Perhaps I’m wrong, but I can’t remember a church that has a wall in front.Walls are barriers we choose to erect. Large, imponderable, formidable walls are an insult to the beauty of the world. Walls define others as different and undesirable. An unquestioning us versus them approach. What do walls say about us?Don CooperAmsterdamMore from The Daily Gazette:Three seniors who started as seventh-graders providing veteran experience for Amsterdam golfEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationlast_img read more

Fugro, Planck Aerosystems Recognized for Oil Seepage Mapping Project

first_imgFugro has been honoured with an Environmental Leadership Award from The Maritime Alliance, a California-based non-profit organisation that promotes sustainable, science-based ocean and water industries.The recognition was received in San Diego during the organisation’s BlueTech Week, an international gathering of over 485 marine professionals from academia, government, and industry.Sharing in the award was Planck Aerosystems, a drone intelligence company specialising in autonomous unmanned aerial systems.Fugro collaborated with Planck Aerosystems on a project to identify and map oil seepage from abandoned offshore well sites in Santa Barbara County. The work was performed for long-time Fugro customer Aqueos Corporation under contract to the non-profit environmental group Heal the Ocean. Results from this project prompted the California State Assembly to pass legislation SB-44 funding a legacy oil and gas well removal and remediation programme through 2028. The legislation was signed into law in October.The Maritime Alliance cited the Fugro/Planck Aerosystems collaboration as a prime example of member companies working together for mutual benefit, as well as to the benefit of the ocean environment. Craig McLean, assistant administrator and acting chief scientist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), presented the awards.“We are grateful to be recognised by The Maritime Alliance for this collaboration,” said Todd Mitchell, remote sensing manager for Fugro. “Partnerships such as this are an important part of our business process, and we are pleased to have helped facilitate a solution that has effected legislative change for the good of all stakeholders.”In addition to the Environmental Leadership Award, Fugro received a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition, signed by Representative Duncan Hunter.last_img read more
