UK to undergo most radical energy shake-up in generation

first_imgThursday 16 December 2010 8:41 pm UK to undergo most radical energy shake-up in generation CHRIS HUHNE yesterday announced the coalition will force through the biggest energy industry shake-up in a generation.He said renewable power will become “dominant”, with new subsidies being provided to immature power generators including offshore wind and wave power as the UK tries to meet ambitious carbon targets.Huhne is desperate to meet a target of slashing carbon production by 34 per cent by 2020. To achieve this more than £110bn of investment is needed in grid upgrades and new power stations.The coalition will phase out a scheme that allowed renewable energy providers to trade “awards” with traditional power generators trying to fulfil their carbon obligations. Instead low-carbon support will be extended to cover nuclear and clean coal. The government also says it will examine rules that mean energy firms do not have to pay a tax to use fossil fuels to produce electricity. Energy and climate change secretary Huhne said: “We have a once-in-a-generation chance to rebuild our electricity market, rebuild investor confidence, and rebuild our power stations.”Critics say the changes, which are subject to a two-month consultation period, could push bills higher by up to £500 a year.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares ITM Power (LSE: ITM) shares have had a great run recently. Over the last three months, ITM Power’s share price has risen more than 150%. Over the last year, it’s surged around 800%.After that kind of stunning performance, ITM Power shares are now getting plenty of attention. But is the AIM-listed stock worth buying today? Let’s take a look at the investment case.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…What does ITM Power do?ITM Power is a clean-fuel company that specialises in hydrogen energy solutions. Those solutions are designed to take excess energy from the power network, convert it into hydrogen, and then use this form of clean energy in a wide range of applications.In October last year, the company entered into a 50/50 joint venture (JV) with multinational chemical company Linde – a world leader in industrial gases and engineering. This JV will focus on delivering green hydrogen to large-scale industrial projects.A renewable energy playITM Power certainly appears to have a lot of potential, in my opinion. In a world that’s increasingly focusing on sustainability and climate change, renewable energy is undoubtedly the way forward. So ITM should benefit from powerful tailwinds in the years ahead.The market for ITM’s hydrogen solutions appears to be vast. For example, hydrogen energy can be used to refuel electric cars, buses, and trains. It can also be used to help provide heating and cooling to our homes. Additionally, it can be used in industries such as mining and steel production to make processes more environmentally-friendly and safer.Overall, ITM appears to have an exciting future. Partnered with Linde, the company looks well-placed to benefit from the shift towards renewable energy, in my view.Risks to be aware ofThat said, there are a number of risks to be aware of here. For a start, ITM Power isn’t yet profitable. The company is generating revenues however, it’s still losing quite a bit of money.For example, the group’s most recent half-year report showed a loss from operations of £9.8m, up 85% on the loss of £5.3m the year before. Meanwhile, the company recently advised it’s expecting an expected EBITDA loss for the year ended 30 April of £17.5m. I tend to steer clear of unprofitable companies these days as I’ve found, over the years, they often end up being poor investments.Secondly, after the strong rise in the share price, the company now has a formidable market capitalisation. When the market closed on Friday, ITM’s market-cap was a lofty £1.5bn. Given that sales last year were just £4.6m, that seems high to me.It’s also worth pointing out that ITM insiders have been offloading shares recently. Last week, CEO Graham Cooley, CFO Andy Allen, CTO Simon Bourne, and executive director Rachel Smith all sold shares. This could be interpreted as a bearish signal – it suggests they believe there’s limited upside potential in the near term.Are ITM Power shares worth buying today?Weighing everything up, ITM Power shares look a little too risky for my liking. The company certainly looks to have potential. However, given it’s not yet profitable, I see it as a high-risk speculative play.All things considered, I think there are better stocks to buy right now.

Samoa get off to a good start in the Pacific Nations Cup

first_imgTuesday Jul 5, 2011 Samoa get off to a good start in the Pacific Nations Cup The Pacific Nations Cup got under way this past weekend as in Tokyo defending champions Samoa beat Japan 34-15, at the Prince Chichibu Memorial Ground. Earlier in the day Tonga upset Fiji.Samoa are building up nicely to the Rugby World Cup, with a few starts players in their ranks now that they’re able to all come together and prepare for the big event. Wing Alesana Tuilagi of Leicester Tigers is one of those, and he scored twice as Samoa took advantage of some fairly weak defensive efforts.It looked as though Samoa were going to run away with it when their score beat the time on the clock, at 17-0 after 15 minutes, but Japan pulled together and avoided a complete hiding. Coach John Kirwan has plenty of work to do ahead of the World Cup though if they still hope to achieve his goal of winning at least one match in the tournament.At 24-15 in the second half, things looked decent for the 9700 home ground, but Samoa pulled away somewhat when George Pisi’s try extended the lead and sealed the win.The quality of the below highlights isn’t fantastic, but there were some nice tries and it was a good result for the Samoans, who have some talented players in their side that are worth keeping an eye on. We’ll have highlights of the other opening round game for you soon.

It makes you remember that we can go for it, and then life isn’t just normal and average.”  This is what psychedelic rocker Wayne Coyne had to say about his house which he took part in designing along side his wife, artist/photographer Michelle Martin-Coyne, and led by Fitzsimmons Architects.  The Flaming Lips’ front man has seen to the renovation of an old warehouse space into his new master bedroom & bathroom, art/recording studio, and large family room.  Save this picture!© Joseph Mills Photography The renovation is only one part of a larger master plan (known as “The Compound”) that will eventually connect six adjacent properties to this central structure. The Compound is located in a run-down part of Oklahoma City where Coyne grew up, and this project is a testament to his commitment toward building up his childhood community.Save this picture!© Joseph Mills Photography The Coynes were enthusiastically engaged in all parts of the project from initial design through construction, and architects succeeded in desiging a sort of light, blank canvas that promoted the two eccentric clients toward finishing out the spaces with their own personal visions.  Save this picture!© Joseph Mills Photography The main living area’s roof was raised to create a clerestory, and fitted with one wall of glass doors that open out to an East patio and and the yard beyond.  The master suite overlooks a fountain and the West patio to the South, and and a private garden and acclaimed shower (aka the “Dragon Egg”) to the North.  The Dragon Egg is an egg-shaped, concrete-insulated shell that contains the shower and soaking tub complete with LED lights and water jets.Save this picture!© Joseph Mills Photography Project gallerySee allShow lessJim Olson: Architecture for Art ExhibitionArticlesCityscape Architectural Awards in Emerging Markets 2011Articles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Houses Projects 2009 CopyAbout this officeFitzsimmons ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOklahoma CityHousesUnited StatesPublished on October 05, 2011Cite: “Flaming Lips Residence and Studio / Fitzsimmons Architects” 05 Oct 2011.

Hamma Hammami jailed for three years

first_img Receive email alerts News News Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières – RSF) said today it was appalled at the three years and two months jail sentence for subversion passed on Hamma Hammami, publisher of the Tunisian Communist Workers’ Party (PCOT) newspaper El Badil, calling it “further evidence of the determination of President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali’s regime to muzzle the press.”RSF secretary-general Robert Ménard noted that “imprisonment for expressing opinions is the trademark of authoritarian regimes.” The sentence, passed by a Tunis appeals court during the night of 30-31 March, was a reduction of an earlier nine-year one announced at a trial in absentia on 14 July 1999, at which two associates, Abdeljabar Maduri and Samir Tâamallah, were also convicted of subversion in their absence, receiving sentences of three years and nine months and one year and nine months respectively.The charges against the three men concerned their membership of the PCOT, of which Hammami is leader, and accused them of running an illegal organisation, handing out leaflets, spreading false news, holding illegal meetings and inciting rebellion and lawbreaking.Hammami told the court: “I’m a founder-member of the PCOT. That’s not a crime. I was simply exercising my rights. I’m not a criminal. I favour the rule of law.” His lawyers will appeal the case further.

How Many American Households Struggle to Meet Basic Needs?

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago May 28, 2018 2,835 Views ALICE Project Cost of living Home Prices Poverty United Way 2018-05-28 Krista Franks Brock Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago  Print This Post The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Krista Franks Brock is a professional writer and editor who has covered the mortgage banking and default servicing sectors since 2011. Previously, she served as managing editor of DS News and Southern Distinction, a regional lifestyle publication. Her work has appeared in a variety of print and online publications, including Consumers Digest, Dallas Style and Design, DS News and, MReport and She holds degrees in journalism and art from the University of Georgia. Unemployment is low, and economic headlines are mostly positive, but a substantial percentage of American households struggle to meet their basic needs, according to new data from the United Way. There are 16.1 million households living in poverty in the United States. More than twice that number earn “less than what it takes to survive in the modern economy,” according to the United Way ALICE Project.  Dubbed ALICE—Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed—by the United Way, these households are “one emergency from poverty.” They are above the Federal Poverty Line but are unable to meet the basic needs of housing, food, healthcare, childcare, and transportation. There are 34.7 million ALICE families in the U.S. Together with those counted as living in poverty, that’s 50.8 million households who struggle to meet their basic needs.“Despite seemingly positive economic signs, the ALICE data shows that financial hardship is still a pervasive problem,” said Stephanie Hoopes, Ph.D., ALICE Project Director, who leads data analysis. While the Federal Poverty Line relies on national averages, the ALICE Project reviews county-level data across the nation to determine the earnings necessary to meet the costs of basic living needs in that county. Households that fall below the “ALICE Threshold” account for 43 percent of American households. ALICE persists across all regions of the nation and among all ages, races, and ethnicities. The three most common jobs for individuals falling into the ALICE category are retail sales, cashiers, and food preparers. Median earnings for these three jobs are below $13.07 per hour. Other jobs common among ALICE earners are office clerks, nurses, customer service representatives, elementary school teachers, and maintenance and repair workers. More than two-thirds of U.S. jobs pay less than $20 per hour, according to ALICE Project data, and “the dominance of low-paying jobs shows no signs of slowing down.” More than 30 percent of households in each state fall below the ALICE-defined “basic survival budget.” North Dakota has the lowest share of households unable to meet basic needs at 32 percent. The highest share was recorded in California, New Mexico, and Hawaii, at 49 percent. “One of the most difficult conditions that most ALICE households face is the high cost of housing,” according to the United Way ALICE Project. The ALICE Project identified a “mismatch between the number of households with income below the ALICE Threshold and the number of housing units that they can afford in a given county.” While markets generally adapt to what consumers are able and willing to pay, the United Way said, “there are many constraints on the housing market that prevent it from adjusting quickly.” Some of those constraints include zoning regulations, land availability, and construction costs, according to the ALICE Project. The ALICE Project was initiated by the United Way of Northern New Jersey at the start of the Great Recession with a mission of redefining financial hardship in the United States with more comprehensive and more precise data. The project aims to inform policy for government, business, and nonprofit organizations. “For too long, the magnitude of financial instability in this country has been understated and obscured by misleading averages and outdated poverty calculations,” said John Franklin, President of the ALICE Project and CEO of United Way of Northern New Jersey. He called it “morally unacceptable and economically unsuitable” for the nation to allow such a high percentage of its working residents to live “paycheck to paycheck.” “We are all paying a price when ALICE families can’t pay the bills,” he said.
