Pete Hettema told Pasadena Now on Monday.The thieves made off with a specialized, neon green Roubaix bike as well as a black-and-white Trek Madone, both with electronic gear shifting, Hettema reported.While Hettema did not have the specific models that were stolen, both brands are distinctly big-ticket gear – with the most deluxe editions costing as much as $12,000 and more modest models running in the $2,000 to $3,000 range, according to the companies’ websites.Think of them as the Rolls-Royces and Bentleys of the bicycle world.According to the police report, the two thieves entered the victims’ driveway, possibly climbing over a fence before entering the open garage door.They did not enter the residence, Hettema said.Reportedly, one of the bike owners’ mothers was home at the time, but did not hear anything suspicious. It was not immediately known who reported seeing the thieves fleeing along Glen Oaks aboard their high-end hauls.“I don’t have anything on suspect information or what they looked like, just two suspects, no further details,’’ Hettema said.For now, at least, the best IDs will have to be those well-heeled wheels.last_img read more

Spain’s Repsol says it is spending more on green energy than oil and gas exploration

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Bloomberg:Repsol SA has invested more in recent months in developing renewable power projects than searching for oil and gas, offering the latest example of how Europe’s energy giants are accelerating their shift away from fossil fuels.The Spanish firm has spent 199 million euros ($232 million) this year on oil exploration, in countries ranging from the U.S. and Russia to Indonesia, compared with about 300 million euros developing new clean energy projects. The growth of the renewables division may also make it feasible to bring in an external partner or hold an initial public offering of the unit in the future, Chief Executive Officer Josu Jon Imaz told analysts on Thursday.Repsol surprised the industry in December when it wrote down the value of its assets by 4.8 billion euros to adjust for lower crude prices in the future and said it would target net-zero emissions of greenhouses gases by 2050, the first major oil company to do so. Since then, larger rivals including Total SE, Royal Dutch Shell Plc and BP Plc, have unveiled their own plans to focus on clean energy.About 30% of Repsol’s capital expenditure in 2020 will be on low-emissions projects, and about 25% in the next few years, Imaz told Spain’s parliament in September. The company is set to present a new strategic plan in late November.This is the second major corporate shift by Repsol in just over 20 years. The Spanish refiner and gas station operator only became an oil producer after acquiring YPF SA in 1998. Its upstream division was for years populated by Argentine executives who worked for YPF, and even its power division is run by a former YPF employee.[Rodrigo Orihuela]More: Spanish oil giant now spends more on renewable energy than oil drilling Spain’s Repsol says it is spending more on green energy than oil and gas explorationlast_img read more

Miller: Chris Paul returns to face Clippers and is thanked for his efforts

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan sits out 2nd consecutive game with sprained ankle They mattered more than ever, filling the postseason gap vacated by the suddenly flailing Lakers.They were taken seriously, year in and year out, for the first time after four decades of being dismissed as hopeless.There’s nothing minor about any of that, not for a franchise that, all-time, had one recognizable face, and that was the one up in the stands, hidden under a paper bag.So, when Paul was introduced before the game, he was warmly cheered without a peep of discernible dissension, this even though he asked the Clippers over the summer to trade him away.Immediately after tipoff, he was booed whenever he handled the ball. But, by the time he made his first 3-pointer and was credited with his first three assists – and all that took barely three minutes – the boos had quieted.The Clippers won three playoff series with Paul but never more than one in a single postseason, meaning they were unable to make it even halfway to a title.They always seemed to have a shot with him. Ultimately, though, the Clippers never had a chance, the most lasting impressions of those playoff forays being a blown game against Oklahoma City and a blown series against Houston.“We were an ‘almost’ team,” Rivers said. “We were a team … it’ll haunt me forever because we were close.”They weren’t good enough to produce anything more than disappointment, weren’t heathy enough to put up anything more than a spirited but frequently short-handed fight.Speaking Sunday before the Rockets practiced at UCLA, Paul talked about the “great times” he had with the Clippers and how much he grew while playing here. Of L.A., he said, “This is home.”But he also acknowledged what remains as obvious as all the championship stories lacking in Clippers lore.“We didn’t win it all,” Paul said. “That was the point.”Banners hang over the Lakers when they play in this building. What hangs over the Clippers is something closer to the blade of guillotine, a constant disclaimer that reads like an epitaph:Have never advanced beyond the second round of the playoffs.Not that Paul is to blame. Without him, the Clippers wouldn’t have been good enough to even find out they weren’t quite good enough.“We’re all part of that legacy,” Rivers said. “I don’t think we should separate Chris by himself in that legacy. I’m part of that legacy. D.J. (DeAndre Jordan), Blake (Griffin) and all the guys that were here are part of that legacy.”Paul’s presence Monday – even while in the colors of another team – rekindled a recent past that, like so many memories, will always seem better than it was in reality.“The Oklahoma series … that changed our fortune,” Rivers said. “And then we followed it up with the Houston debacle. You can’t get those back.”Still, this was a night that passed as nostalgic for the Clippers. When you make the playoffs one time in 14 seasons during one stretch and zero times in 15 seasons during another, you cling to whatever good times you can manufacture.See, it takes four series victories in one postseason to win an NBA title. The Clippers, an operation that has been in existence since 1970, have five series victories total. That’s five, as in ever. Five. Period.Paul was here for three of them. Without the orchestration of this future Hall of Fame point guard, those three never would have happened. So, yeah, he should have been greeted warmly.About an hour before the game, Paul emerged from the Houston locker room to meet with a large contingent from the Brotherhood Crusade, an organization that strives to improve life for the underserved.He worked closely with the group while he was here and continues to do so, Paul telling those gathered Monday that he left only the Clippers, not the Brotherhood.When he was done speaking, everyone posed for a photo, Paul standing right there in the middle, surrounded by dozens of smiles.In unison, they all said, “Thank you, Chris,” the sentiment sweet and sincere enough to carry throughout the rest of the night. Because, despite the progress those Clippers made, the steps came with pain. And for a group coming back from so far behind, in the end, the progress felt strangely like standing still.That’s what history says, and history generally knows what it’s talking about. History should. It was, after all, there in person.“You’re always judged by wins, and we won a lot of games,” Coach Doc Rivers said. “But we didn’t get it done.”With Paul, the Clippers stopped being a punchline, a position cemented when Steve Ballmer took over as owner from Donald Sterling, the personification of a bad joke.center_img LOS ANGELES — He arrived, officially, as a Rocket.But Chris Paul was back at Staples Center on Monday as something else, too. As a reminder.A reminder of a more promising time for the Clippers.Of an era when the organization had championship aspirations. Of everything the team did – and, in particular, didn’t do – during Paul’s six seasons here.Related Articleslast_img read more
