MALIBU – A study on a natural gas plant proposed off the coast of Malibu has concluded that the plant would significantly affect air quality, ocean views and marine life. One of the world’s largest energy companies, Australian-based BHP Billiton LNG International Inc., is seeking to build a terminal off the coast of Malibu and Oxnard. BHP officials say the facility would provide a reliable source of low-polluting energy. “Cabrillo Port will be built to the highest public safety and environmental standards and will provide clean, safe, reliable energy to meet Ventura County’s and California’s ever-growing energy needs,” BHP President Renee Klimczak said. But opponents have said the terminal would not meet clean-air requirements and could be a terrorist target. A host of celebrities who live in Malibu, including Pierce Brosnan and Halle Berry, have protested the facility. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

1 Arsenal fans react to Sami Khedira transfer Another World Cup winner at Arsenal?Sami Khedira is hotly tipped to join Arsenal from Real Madrid after the Spanish club reportedly agreed to sell him for €25m. A transfer would see him play alongside international team-mates Mesut Ozil, Lukas Podolski and Per Mertesacker, and follow Alexis Sanchez from Spain after the forward moved from Barca in a reported £33m deal.Khedira’s potential move has certainly got fans excited, with some claiming Arsenal’s spending this summer may see them finally challenge for a fourth Premier League title and a first since 2004. At the very least it could prove former Liverpool striker Michael Owen wrong, with a number of Gooners strongly disagreeing with his statement that Arsenal will finish outside the top four.

The Angels began play in 1961 as the Los Angeles Angels, becoming the California Angels when the team moved from Los Angeles to Anaheim in 1966. The name was changed to the Anaheim Angels in 1997.

SANTA ANA – Angels owner Arte Moreno violated a 10-year-old contract with the city of Anaheim that lost $100 million in tourism revenue and publicity when he changed the team’s name last year, a city attorney said Friday. A packed courtroom watched as the much-anticipated trial pitting the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the city of Anaheim began. Curious fans were on hand, some wearing T-shirts that read “We Are Not L.A.” The city sued the Angels after Moreno abruptly changed the name from the Anaheim Angels last January. The city alleges that the 2002 World Series champions breached a contract that promised the word “Anaheim” would be prominently displayed in the Angels’ name and on all team merchandise and advertising. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita City attorney Andrew Guilford argued that the city entered into a contract with the team’s former owner, The Walt Disney Co., in 1996 with the understanding that the name Anaheim Angels would bring the city so-called “impressions” – the publicity they get each time the Angels play. Guilford said testimony during the trial, which is expected to last a month, would show that contract was worth $100 million to the city. He said the city paid for $20 million in stadium renovations and $10 million in billboard publicity as a concession so Disney would put Anaheim in the team name. “The evidence will show that is an incredible brand that even Nike would die for,” Guilford said. “It’s a brand IBM would die for. It’s a brand even McDonald’s and its golden arches would die for. And that’s the logo Anaheim is here to get back.” Angels’ attorneys were expected to make their opening statements Friday afternoon. Moreno, who plans to attend every day of the trial until spring training, has said he changed the name to make the most of the Angels’ location in the nation’s second-largest media market. He said using Los Angeles in the name would attract more sponsorships, advertising and broadcast contracts.

Oxlade-Chamberlain suffers another setback as Klopp confirms serious injury The average first-team salaries at every Premier League club in 2019 2 Liverpool news live: Klopp reveals when Minamino will play and issues injury update Karren Brady admits West Ham would be interested in buying the London Stadium amid a dispute with the much-maligned ground’s current owners.Earlier this year it was reported E20 Stadium LLP, who own the London Stadium, could go bust in the coming months having been forced to take out a loan of public money just to stay afloat. Liverpool’s signings under Michael Edwards – will Minamino be the next big hit? E20 are expected to be backed by the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) until at least next March, but their chief executive, Lyn Garner, criticised West Ham for agreeing a peppercorn rent to use the ground.“What is really driving the problems are the low rents paid by the concessionaires, particularly West Ham,” she said last month.“I’ve got to say the elephant in the room is the fee that they pay us is the usage cost does not cover the event-day costs and that’s before we go anywhere near a commercial advantage.”Brady has hit back at figures released by the LLDC which say taxpayers are shelling out up to £250,000 for each West Ham match, with the vice-chairman insisting the stadium is ‘generating millions of pounds’ on matchdays.“There should be a surplus,” Brady was quoted by the BBC. gameday cracker “We would like more control over our matchdays, no one knows how to do that more than us. When we first wanted to move in, we offered to buy the stadium, and we would have been responsible for all costs and that was rejected.“London Stadium craves direction, it should be a jewel in the crown. It needs financial control, it needs investment, it has nowhere near reached its potential and that’s incredibly frustrating.“Unfortunately our help has not been sought.”She added: “I refuse to accept any criticism that our rent is too low, because that is simply not the case.
