first_img“I love Ruby,” said Jennie McNary, curator of mammals, who has worked with her for nearly 15 years. “She’s like a big goofy kid. She’ll test you. She’ll see what she can get away with. “We’re all going to miss her a lot.” Ruby has traveled much of her life. As a baby, she was taken from the African wild and shuttled to Circus Vargas. Later, at the the L.A. Zoo, she developed a close bond with Gita, an Asian elephant who died last summer. Ruby was separated from Gita in 2003 and sent to the Knoxville Zoo, where the once-timid pachyderm was kept in solitary for her aggression toward other elephants. Returning 18 months later to the L.A. Zoo, she became a symbol of strident animal welfare activists who say that elephants – social creatures who roam many miles in the wild – have no place living in zoos. Now, after about four decades in the public eye, Ruby will finally be put to pasture. At dawn Tuesday, she will be loaded into a temperature-controlled truck and hauled 350miles to join three African elephants at the PAWS elephant sanctuary in the Sierra Foothills east of Stockton. For her journey, she’ll be joined by her favorite toys – a “boomer ball” stuffed with peanuts and a hay ball – and some road treats, including her daily diet of 125pounds of hay, 75pounds of carrots, a box of apples and some romaine lettuce. And yams and potatoes, too. “The whole thing is to keep her calm, keep it fun,” Briscoe said. “We’ll all be there to comfort her – just talking to her, touching her, petting her.” “We’re ready for her,” said Pat Derby, co-founder of the Performing Animal Welfare Society, which has a 75-acre preserve in San Andreas. “We’re all excited about her coming. “She’ll have her own suite. She gets the Jacuzzi Pool Suite.” Until then, her three L.A. keepers are spending as much time as they can in her private, off-site barn and yard. They give her brushes dipped in water paint – for a dash of L.A. splash. They stroke her trunk. Speak to her softly. And vow to visit her often. “Hey, Ruby,” a paint-spattered Briscoe coaxed as the giant mammal lumbered from her barn and extended him her grizzled trunk. He turned on dinner music, some Prokofiev. He said she especially likes “The Elephant Song” from “The Jungle Book” film soundtrack, and she has been known to sling mud to country favorites Alan Jackson and Frankie Laine. Together, Ruby’s last zookeepers offered her a banana stalk, her favorite. They fed her carrots. Held forth an acacia bough, which she inhaled like a sprig of parsley. And rolled out a cut elm log for dessert. “They’re all our kids,” said Vicky Guarnett, who has been with Ruby 10 years. “These guys are not just animals we take care of, they’re part of our family, (and) we’re part of theirs.” “I’m sure she will miss us,” Briscoe added. “We intend to stay in contact. We’ll be in a long-term relationship, go up there and bring her stuff – new toys or special pumpkins. Maybe we’ll haul her a tree up. “Maybe Vicky will bake her some cookies.” dana.bartholomew@dailynews.com (818) 713-3730160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! She’s as flamboyant as Pollock and as wild as deKooning. This weekend, Ruby the elephant took abstract expressionism to even greater heights. She painted her zookeepers. “This is nothing,” said elephant keeper Vicky Guarnett, whose face and uniform were flecked with blue, green and pink splotches after she handed Ruby a paintbrush. “She has done better work on me than this.” Keepers at the Los Angeles Zoo will say goodbye to Ruby on Tuesday, when one of their dearest friends heads off to retirement at a Northern California elephant sanctuary. Jeff Briscoe, the zoo’s principal elephant keeper, had welcomed Ruby to the L.A. Zoo in 1987, when she arrived from Circus Vargas. Nearly 9,000 pounds and 9 feet high at the withers, she was squat, with a physique like a sumo wrestler’s. And she was as spirited as a seal and as friendly as a Shetland pony. She has been known to love the smell of her handlers’ new shoes. During the past 20 years, the 46-year-old African elephant has been a favorite of zookeepers, zoogoers and animal activists across Los Angeles. This spring, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa called her “one of L.A.’s true greats.” last_img read more

first_imgMairead McGuinness with Patrick Butterly at the weekend conference.AIB has told Donegal farmers that efficiency and cash flow management will be key for 2015.And the bank said it maintains a positive medium-long term outlook for the agri sector for Irish farmers in 2015.Farmers at the well attended event.AIB Agri-Advisor Patrick Butterly said: “We are finding that many farmers are considering how best to position their farms for the future. Some are expanding, some consolidating, and some focused on improving on-farm efficiencies.” “Irrespective of future farm plans, managing farm cashflow will be essential, as volatility is the new norm and should be factored into all plans, both long and short term. I would encourage any farmer contemplating farm investment or seeking additional working capital to make early contact with their bank to see how best we can support your individual needs,” he continued.AIB last year announced a €500 million fund and a doubling of its Agri-advisor team to greater support the investment and working capital needs of the Agri-sector at farm level.Butterly was speaking at AIB’s ‘Prospects for Irish Agriculture’ seminar which took place at the weekend in the Villa Rose Hotel, Ballybofey.The free seminar was open to AIB and non-AIB customers, with other speakers on the night including Mairead McGuinness, MEP.

first_imgA priest has told motorists that they must not rely on sat navs and road safety campaigns but must take responsibility on the roads themselves.Fr John Joe Duffy was speaking at the funeral masses of two young women who perished in a horrific crash outside Ballybofey on Wednesday afternoon last.Kiara Baird, 19, and Maria Wallis, 38, died after the car in which they were traveling went out of control and struck a lamp-post at 4.15pm. Both women were laid to rest at the weekend after funeral masses at St Mary’s church in Stranorlar, Maria on Saturday and Kiara earlier today.Fr Duffy told large crowds of mourners that people must starting thinking for themselves when they get behind the wheel if we are to cut down on the carnage on out roads.“When we sit into many of our cars today to start put on our journey, our sat navs tell us the distance to destination,  our expected time of arrival,  the best route to take, left turns, right turns and so on.“The voice that is missing is the very one that is most needed, the most relevant voice of all, it is a voice to tell us to slow down, to ask us why the need for high speed, to ask us what is the rush, to remind us that it is better to arrive late than to be killed in order to arrive in time for our own funeral. Fr John Joe Duffy“But even more importantly together with the voice from our dashboards we have to look to within ourselves, to our conscience and start asking ourselves these questions.“Each and everyone of us need to ask them of ourselves.  Should we drive, are we fit to drive in a safe cautious manner? We are only fooling ourselves if we believe that laws alone can end the carnage on our roads, important as laws are, if they can be our only response, excellent eloquent speeches, highly visual impact adverts and campaigns,  appeals and speeches can be our only answers, no matter how well presented they may be, if we believe that these alone are enough we are fooling ourselves.”He added “No matter how many Garda checkpoints and speed checks they are, which are absolutely necessary, if we fail to turn to ourselves,  if we fail to look inward to ourselves, if we fail to ask ourselves the very straight forward, simple but relevant questions, each and everyone of us, we will fail to solve the crisis of road deaths and the awful carnage that rips the hearts of families and communities apart.“We must turn inward to ourselves, and ask the questions of ourselves, what is our rush? Are we fit to drive, are we driving with due care and caution,” he said.At yesterday’s mass he paid tribute to Kiara calling her a radiant, beautiful and precious” and sympathized with her parents Tracey and Andrew and siblings. He said how she had completed a course in beauty and was about to start a course in the hospitality industry having moved to Donegal from her native Dublin with her family 7 years ago.“This morning Kiera’s parents, siblings, family and friends have been plunged into a great and terrible grief, a numbness, a saddness, an unrealness and an awful nightmare.“The young woman in the youth of her life, the radiant, beautiful and precious Kiera, with her glowing smile, was born in Dublin, moved from Dublin almost 7 years ago to Ballybofey.  She attended St. Columba’s for almost all of her second level education. Kiera finished a beauty course in Strabane sometime ago and in the last few weeks had embarked on a course in hospitality.“I have no doubt that Kiera would have succeed in that area of life for she was most hospitable.  Kiera had a warm, kind and welcoming heart and beautiful bubbly personality.  She was full of life and full of fun, joy and happiness.  She liked to laugh and she loved to be with her friends, her besties, whom she loved and appreciated. “She made friends easily. Kiera had a beautiful and kind nature. She saw the best in everyone. She looked out to find the good in people. The only type of person who can do that I believe is someone who has within themselves that innate goodness,  kindness and generosity of heart, all of which Kiera had in great abundance. She was a people’s person, she cared for people. She loved to socialise, she loved life, loved to be with friends and she loved taking walks and enjoyed the beauty of the outdoors, she appreciated creation.”The previous day Fr Duffy had similar words of sympathy for the friends and family of Maria Wallis, a mother of three who also perished in the crash.Maria, who was originally from Scotland, was completing an education course with Kiara and both had become friendly.Two of her teenage boys helped carry her coffin to her final resting place.Fr Duffy said Maria and Kiara’s deaths will have a devastating and numbing affect on the local community for a long time.“Life is a gift the most precious gift of all. The moments we live life are precious,  family time, time with friends. At every stage in life we believe ourselves to be in control, but that is not always the way, just as on Wednesday afternoon, which was like any other Wednesday afternoon but for Kiera and Maria, a sudden event would show we are not always in control, that their precious lives were ended suddenly under very harrowing and tragic circumstances.“That sequence of events has led us to be here today in a situation we would rather not be, the tragedy of last Wednesday has had a huge impact on this community, devastating family, loved ones and friends. The crash that occured on Wednesday will have a lasting affect on so many people. The events that occurred on Wednesday afternoon last have had a devastating and numbing affect on the lives of two immediate families, loved ones, friends, our community and beyond,” he said.Mourners are told motorists must take responsibility behind the wheel was last modified: September 25th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img1 August 2013 South Africa’s renewable energy efforts ramped up with the launch of the country’s first large-scale high-resolution Wind Resource Map on Wednesday. The Wind Resource Map would be a vital instrument in government’s planning for efficient use of the country’s wind resources, Energy Minister Ben Martins said in a statement. By providing accurate, verified information on South Africa’s wind resources, the map would also “serve as an all-important tool in enabling developers to fast-track their own efforts in developing wind farm projects,” Martins said. The map, generated from the Wind Atlas for South Africa project, currently covers the Western Cape and parts of the Eastern and Northern Cape provinces. It includes information, such as surface terrain effects that determine local wind climates, and estimates of wind speed and capacity, to help prospective wind farm developers identify high-potential zones. The information promises not only to cut down on development time and costs, but also to help level the playing field between larger and smaller players in the industry. Denmark’s ambassador to South Africa, Rene Dinesen, said the new high-resolution data would be of huge benefit to both the government and independent power producers. “This data can ensure that the most highly productive project sites in terms of wind speed are identified,” Dinesen said. Denmark is providing financial support to South Africa to invest in wind-based electricity generation, following the signing of an agreement between the two countries in March.
