Data released this month by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas shows wind created 22 percent of the electricity used in the first half of the year, edging out coal by 1%.Texas is the largest consumer of coal in the country, according to the Energy Information Administration. But cheap natural gas and renewable energy prices are biting into coal’s market share.Natural gas still continues to produce more electricity than any other source, at 38%. Solar energy accounts for about 1% of electricity here. Daniel Cohan, a civil and environmental engineering professor at Rice University, said that number could slowly tick up.“For several years in a row now, we’ve had almost a doubling of the amount of solar farms in Texas,” he said. “And it looks like we’re set to have a few more doublings ahead. So, Texas is really becoming one of the growth areas for solar after a very slow start.”“It still remains to be seen whether [wind] surpasses coal for the entire year,” he said. July and August are typically the biggest months for coal generation, and coal could pull ahead. “But, so far, it just illustrates the big transition that we’re having away from coal and toward wind power,” he said.More: Texas has generated more electricity from wind than coal so far this year Wind generation tops coal in Texas for first six months of 2019
A 2015 survey by the Association of American Universities found 66 percent of females and 45 percent of males at USC experienced sexual harassment as an undergraduate. (Daily Trojan file photo) A 2015 survey by the Association of American Universities found that 66 percent of undergraduate females and 45 percent of undergraduate males at USC reported being the victims of sexual harassment. It was also found that an estimated 25 percent of students knew the resources available to them when reporting an assault. USC also hopes to increase bystander awareness and education by working with the organization Bringing in the Bystander. To start, 40 teachers and students will be trained on how to safely intervene in instances of sexual assault and relationship violence or situations such as stalking. Once trained, these students and teachers are certified to train other members on campus. “I think, for RSVP, what I wanted to do was raise our visibility on campus as a resource for both supportive services and advocacy, as well as prevention,” RSVP director Brenda Ingram said. “We haven’t had as strong as a voice on campus as we would like.” Incoming freshmen will participate in the interactive workshop on campus in the upcoming semesters. Student Health Services hired a Relationship and Sexual Violence Prevention specialist, who will arrive in late February to create a curriculum for students on affirmative consent, bystander awareness and other topics related to sexual violence and assault. RSVP Services is the immediate provider for students who have been victims of sexual assault, harassment or relationship violence. “What we want to be able to do with the prevention specialist is [to] add capacity in this area and also to have someone who is really focusing their entire position on really looking at prevention,” Chief Health Officer Sarah Van Orman said. “[We] are in the process of developing what we are calling multiple doses of consent and healthy relationships and sexual assault prevention education,” said Diane Medsker, a senior learning and training specialist at the Office for Health Promotion Strategy. The University will pilot a workshop this fall titled “Affirmative Consent” that will teach students about current California consent laws. While the pilot program won’t be made mandatory for students, Ingram hopes to require it in addition to “Think About It” in upcoming years. “I really encourage everybody to … take the survey,” Van Orman said. “The information is really valuable and will really shape what we do on our campus.” While USC plans to keep the online module, it is looking to implement in-person training for incoming students that will continue throughout their time in college. “It’s so easy to go into shock [as a bystander] and not be able to acknowledge what is happening right in front of you,” said Lizzie Keller, a sophomore majoring in cinema and media studies who uses RSVP services. “I think putting people in that mindset of being careful and paying attention to your surroundings would be really helpful.” USC is working toward fostering a culture of consent by boosting sexual assault prevention techniques and education on campus. This is one of the goals in its 2017-2020 Strategic Plan. The Association of American Universities will conduct its study on sexual assault and sexual misconduct again in April 2019. Students at USC and 26 other universities will receive information to participate via email. In 2014, USC launched an online module required for incoming students, titled “Think About It.” The one-hour online course encourages students to participate in critical thinking about consent, relationships, sexual assault, bystander intervention and University resources by producing multiple online scenarios for students.

LIGHTSTREAM HEADS FIELD OF EIGHT PROVEN 3-YEAR-OLD FILLES IN OPENING DAY, GRADE I, $300,000 LA BREA STAKES
ARCADIA, Calif. (Dec. 21, 2016) – Highly regarded Lightstream will step out for the first time in her six race career with new California connections backing her. Prominent So Cal owners, Little Red Feather Racing, have recently bought a share in the Florida-based filly by Harlan’s Holiday, who could very likely go off as the favorite over hometown hero, Enola Gray, in the 45th running of the Grade I, $300,000 La Brea Stakes for 3-year-old fillies on Dec. 26.A winner of the Grade II Raven Run Stakes at Keeneland on Oct. 22, Lightstream has never run out of the money, even in her last three graded stakes attempts. Trained by Brian Lynch, Lightstream was a second place finisher in the Grade I Test at Saratoga on Aug. 6 and ran third in the Grade I Mother Goose at Belmont on July 2. Julien Leparoux, aboard for her first two races, and also her most recent victory, will travel west and once again have the mount.Lightstream is owned by Up Hill Stable, Head of Plains Partners, LLC and Little Red Feather Racing. In six career races she has amassed earnings of $457,000.Enola Gray will have a new rider Monday at Santa Anita Park. The 3-year-old filly will gain Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith for the first time in six career outings.Bred in California by owner Nick Alexander, Enola Gray has been on everyone’s list since an impressive 16 ¼ lengths win in her first ever outing, a six and-a-half furlong maiden special weight at Santa Anita on April 10. Since then, the Phil D’Amato trained filly by Grazen hasn’t run worse than second. A winner of three ungraded stakes earlier in the year – the Melair on May 28, the Fleet Treat on July 22 and the California Distaff Handicap down the hillside turf course on Oct 15, “Gray” will take a shot at her first-ever added money attempt in the La Brea.The field, including jockeys and weights for the Grade I La Brea Race 7 – Approximate post time: 3 p.m. Lunar Empress, Norberto Arroyo, Jr., 119 Lightstream, Julien Leparoux, 121Finley’sluckycharm, Brain Hernandez, Jr., 119Constellation, David Flores, 119Coniah, Tyler Baze, 119Chao Chom, Kent Desormeaux, 119 Enola Gray, Mike Smith, 119Perfect Pic, Santiago Gonzalez, 119
1 Raheem Sterling Liverpool have reached an agreement with Manchester City for the £49million transfer of Raheem Sterling.City have already failed with two bids, the second reported to be worth £40million, this summer, but it appears they have now made progress in talks.Sterling missed the start of pre-season training earlier this week, citing illness as he sat out Wednesday and Thursday’s sessions before reporting on Friday.It had been reported that he had asked manager Brendan Rodgers if he could be excused from the pre-season tour before being named in the 30-man squad.Liverpool are due to fly to Bangkok on Sunday ahead of their first friendly against a Thai All Stars side next Tuesday.It is understood Sterling reported for training with rest of the squad at Melwood on Sunday morning but Liverpool took the decision to withdraw him from the trip.Sterling joined Liverpool from QPR’s academy in 2010 and has made 129 appearances for the club, scoring 23 goals.He made his senior England debut in 2012 and has scored one goal in 16 appearances.The 20-year-old’s actions this summer have prompted criticism from a host of ex-Liverpool stars, with his former captain Steven Gerrard the latest to speak out, saying he is” not happy with all that carry-on”.Assuming Sterling agrees terms with City and passes a medical, his protracted and acrimonious departure from Anfield will finally be sealed.
