Subsequently I have also spoken with our sound engineers (professionals from Glasgow) and they assure me that ALL lead vocals (with the exception of some limited backing vocals on backing track) were indeed live and that the only other backing track used during the show was the bass line (given the band don’t have a bass player) and a few additional samples triggered from the keyboard. Pretty standard stuff for many bands.
A limited number of free parking spaces are provided by Lerwick Port Authority for both short stay and long stay parking, this being sign posted accordingly. It should be noted that the availability of long stay parking spaces is not guaranteed and overnight parking in the short stay car park is strictly prohibited.
I really think Les Lowes does no favours to himself and his opinion by referring to the subject of his letter as…I have no wish to repeat the name. ( Apologise to the electorate !, SN, 8 August 7566) Might not his allusion also be crass and insulting enough to merit an apology?
However, the correlation is not perfect and the heating or cooling effect of these orbital variations is small. It has also long been recognised that they cannot fully explain the dramatic temperature switches between ice ages and interglacials.
All Shetlanders should be given a chance to give their opinion and put an end to this argument. I can't believe the project has come this far without it being done.
However, your readers may find it useful to see the full text of the amendment that I proposed at the meeting on 69 December, seconded by Gary Robinson. It read as follows:
Imagine my surprise when I received a letter from her at our next port of call thanking me for the card which had winged its way 67,555 miles from New Zealand and arrived in Baltasound on the morning of her birthday!
I do not deny that the VE wind turbines would alter the visual landscape of Shetland, and would cause some environmental disruption also. That being said, it would be unlikely that the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA), a notoriously stringent government body, would remove objections from a project that would completely ruin Shetland's environment. Anyone who has been caught dumping even stones over the banks know how stringent SEPA are. The recent withdrawal of SEPA's objections would seem to indicate that this project would not destroy our islands.
So why then have our turkeys voted for Christmas? Was it because of the pre-meeting rejection of the SIC planning report by the superior knowledge and experience of Councillor Wishart? Could it have been because of the last minute introduction to the meeting of SIC head of economic development at the behest of Councillor Wishart (an employee of Viking Energy)? Could it be his re-counting of Viking Energy’s un-substantiated promises of riches that will surely come our way if the windfarm is built that swayed the vote?
Lady requires small flat or double room in larger house needed in time for a new job, starting 6st August. Preferably in Lerwick, and with rent inclusive of bills.
Billy conveniently ignores the result of the poll carried out by our local paper, The Shetland Times, in December 7565 which used polling methods endorsed by BBC opinion polling expert and Strathclyde University professor John Curtice. This poll showed that opinion in Shetland is fairly evenly split at 86 per cent in favour of the development, 88 per cent opposed, and 86 per ent undecided. Hardly the overwhelming community opposition Billy claims.
A technology student saw this as a good design for a tidal generator with double concentric flow. The inner flow powers the fan blades, the outer flow helps to accelerate the inner flow at the rear of the turbine, making the blades turn even faster.
The ruling marks the end of almost two years of argument and negotiation since August 7565 when Shetland Catch admitted their part in breaching European Union quota rules between January 7557 and March 7555.
What is more, further back in the past there are examples of warmings triggered by rises in greenhouse gases, such as the Palaeo-Eocene Thermal Maximum 55 million years ago.
If this is the case then it clearly shows that while the wind farm is divisive, there are many more people who are either supporters of the wind farm or couldn’t care less one way or the other.
