Notre Dame hosts debate about potential results of midterm elections

first_imgThe United States is in a time of great political divide. With the midterm elections around the corner, people are seeking answers and closure. Tuesday, Notre Dame Constitutional Studies and the Center for Social Concerns’ ND Votes hosted a debate titled “A Blue Wave? The 2018 Mid-Term Elections and the Future of American Democracy.”This event featured Damon Linker, a senior correspondent at The Week, a consulting editor at the University of Pennsylvania Press and the author of books on the relationship between religion and politics. Linker described himself as politically liberal while the other guest speaker, Ramesh Ponnuru, identified himself as a Republican. Ponnuru is a visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, senior editor of National Review, a columnist for Bloomberg View, a senior fellow at the National Review Institute and the author of two books.After introductions and a reminder to vote in this election, Linker and Ponnuru were asked to opine on the outcome of the midterm elections and what Democrats should be doing. Linker began his response with a warning about deceptive polling data and examples of how polling predictions have failed in the past.“I will say that I believe in the conventional wisdom, probably the Democrats are going to win the House by some indeterminate margin and they will not win the Senate,” Linker said.He expanded, stating that most polling is based on those voters who are expected to show up to the polls but that this could be incorrect if another group is more motivated due to controversial issues, such as the threat of immigration. Lastly, Linker suggested that the Democrats should divide and conquer by using the diversity of their party to get certain candidates elected based on the demographics of the district, such as a socially liberal candidate in New York or a culturally moderate candidate in the Midwest.Ponnuru agreed with Linker that Democrats will win the House and even predicted that the House will be made up of 225 Democrats and 210 Republicans. He and Linker concurred that Democrats tend to live in highly populated areas, resulting in wasted popular votes, which ultimately benefits the Republican Party in presidential elections due to the Electoral College.“A lot of the votes for Hillary Clinton were actually against Donald Trump,” Ponnuru said.He explained how certain disadvantages that plague Democrats, like urban clustering and gerrymandering, could be fixed if the party would make a few ideological and style changes. He also noted that such a change would not take place in either party, coming back to the idea that each party believes that it already represents the public.Tags: conservative, Election, liberal, midterm elections, ND Voteslast_img read more

How coffee is helping boost property values

first_imgREIQ Gold Coast zone chairman Andrew Henderson. Picture: Jerad WilliamsONE of the rules of buying property is to follow the infrastructure trail. In other words, you should buy properties close to where new infrastructure is being built. Infrastructure projects are proven to be a key factor driving up the value of houses. The Collective, Palm Beach. Photo by Richard GoslingWhat many people don’t realise is that venues like bars and restaurants can also add value to nearby properties, although generally not those homes located right next door. An English study found the opening of Michelin star restaurants in a suburb could lead to property prices rises of up to two per cent in one year. This is not surprising to me. Cafes, restaurants and hotels add to the lifestyle appeal of an area. Property owners and renters want to live close to the action. So, I would jokingly suggest you ask a friendly restaurateur to open a new venue near your home.-ANDREW HENDERSON An aerial general view of the Gold Coast skyline.The best documented impact on property prices relate to transport projects. For example, a Lloyds Bank study found that closeness to tram stops created premium property prices throughout England. Proximity to train and tram stops have long been identified as creating a price premium in Melbourne. Research into the Gold Coast property market has found that land within 400m of the stations increased in value by seven per cent more than the surrounding land, in the year after the light rail began operation here.More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa18 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag2 days agoBut it’s not just transport links that property buyers should be looking at. Social infrastructure, which includes schools, hospitals and community facilities; can also boost property values. For example, on the Gold Coast, closeness to The Southport School can add a significant premium on prices.Local attractions can also have a significant impact on prices.The most obvious one on the Gold Coast is the beach. The closer your property is to the beach, the more it is worth. last_img read more

Anbaric Eyes New York-New Jersey Ocean Grid

first_imgThe US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has published a ‘Request for Competitive Interest’ for the development of the New York and New Jersey Wind Energy Transmission Line, an offshore transmission system that would deliver offshore wind energy to the onshore electric grid. Anbaric Development Partners (ADP) has requested a right-of-way grant to develop the NY/NJ Ocean Grid.Prior to reviewing the right-of-way application, BOEM must determine whether there are other developers interested in the same area.BOEM will publish a Request for Competitive Interest in the Federal Register on June 19, 2019.“Offshore transmission infrastructure will be critical to the long-term success of the offshore wind industry,” said BOEM Acting Director Walter Cruickshank. “We look forward to working with our state and local government partners, industry and others as we continue to oversee responsible offshore wind development while diversifying our nation’s energy portfolio.”In addition, BOEM is providing an opportunity for the public and interested stakeholders to provide comments on the ADP right-of-way request.ADP’s proposed project would entail the construction, installation, and operation of an offshore transmission system to deliver offshore wind energy to the onshore electric grid. This includes the siting of several offshore collector platforms (OCPs), each connected to one or more high voltage subsea export cables to onshore points of interconnection. Each proposed OCP would be designed to handle 800 to 1,200 megawatts of offshore wind energy, with the ability to connect multiple offshore wind projects and accommodate phased development within BOEM’s designated Wind Energy Areas.If BOEM receives indications of competitive interest from qualified entities, the bureau may decide to move forward with the right-of-way grant issuance process using competitive procedures.BOEM said it will continue to consult with the state task force and partners regarding the proposed transmission project.last_img read more
