Enter Your Email Address Kirsteen Mackay | Friday, 12th June, 2020 | More on: ITM ITM Power (LSE:ITM) is an energy storage and clean-fuel company specialising in expanding UK hydrogen power. Companies and governments are increasingly looking at investing in renewable energy. Hydrogen power could be the future of green energy providing it can be harnessed in a way that is affordable to the masses. It also makes for an ethical alternative to investing in oil stocks. The ITM Power share price is up 11% this morning.Disappointing financial resultsEarlier in the week, ITM warned that total income for the year to April 30 had fallen 60% year-on-year. This is due to a combination of project delays and losses on legacy projects, including the Shell Refhyne project. Its recent joint venture with Linde, an engineering procurement and construction (EPC) specialist, should reduce the risk of this happening again.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…ITM made a £9.8m loss from operations, an increase of 85%. As far as earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortisation (EBITDA) were concerned, it lost an 84% wider £8.3m and it spent 29% more cash.ITM has been a constituent of the London Stock Exchange’s AIM market since 2004. It has a market cap of £1.3bn, does not offer a dividend, while earnings per share are negative. This makes it a purely speculative, high-risk investment. However, for those savvy investors buying-in a year ago, the ITM Power share price has risen 750%.Renewable energy stimulusWorld governments are setting up stimulus packages to assist renewable projects in an attempt to clean up the planet. Germany has allocated €9bn to spend on green hydrogen projects. It aims for this to eventually contribute 10% of the country’s total electricity capacity. Meanwhile, The Australian Renewable Energy Agency opened a £38m round of funding for renewable hydrogen projects in April. It has received 36 applications for projects worth over £1.6bn, far overreaching expectations.Race to Zero is a UK government initiative designed to mobilise leadership from businesses, cities, regions and nations to stimulate a zero-carbon recovery. We expect the UK Government to lay out its green recovery measures and plans for investing in renewable energy later this month.Partnered with Linde, it seems ITM Power stands to capitalise on many of the climate change opportunities arising. The number of projects to tender for are growing, highlighting the increase in green hydrogen interest throughout the world.With so many companies and countries competing in the race to harness this technology, the stakes are high. Yet despite government stimulus investing in renewable energy at an increasing pace, this business is unlikely to become profitable any time soon. The UK stock market is on shaky ground as the country heads into recession. I think share price volatility will continue for the foreseeable future. This is not a stock the risk-averse investor should buy, but I do think it is a stock with growth potential for those willing to take a gamble.

The project for the MO House responds to a typical architectural program without being conventional. This proposal for a residence is conceptualized in a unique way. It is based on a pragmatic parameter and far from social rules or conventions. It arises through the experimentation, on a deep study but above all on a resolution to functions over form.

Why we defend Korea

first_imgEver since its establishment in 1948, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea has been under the threat — at times open, at times implied — of nuclear annihilation at the hands of the U.S.Especially tense was the period of the Korean War, when Gen. Douglas MacArthur actually proposed laying down a radioactive cobalt belt along the border with People’s China. This threat came even as U.S. Air Force planes were destroying — with “conventional” bombs — every building in North Korea over one story and millions of Korean people were dying in the war.The real reason for that war was the great anti-colonial, pro-socialist revolution that had triumphed in the North, in which the political rule of Korean landlords and bosses — collaborators with Japanese colonial rule since 1910 — was pulled down and the masses liberated. It is no accident that the years of the Korean war were also a time of the most virulent attacks on progressive forces in the U.S. — the era of McCarthyism.Since then, the Pentagon has organized, at great expense, semi-annual war “games” by the U.S. and South Korea that simulate an attack on the DPRK by nuclear-capable ships and planes. They have quite openly been described as exercises in “decapitating” the North’s leadership and, in recent years, have included military forces from Japan, the hated former colonial power.Now, some 70 years since the division of the Korean nation was formalized by the U.S. setting up a puppet regime in the South, there is a glimmer of hope that discussions among both Koreas and the U.S. could bring an end to the state of war declared in 1950 that persists to this day. The enthusiasm of Koreans in the South, as well as the North, for such a discussion was made clear to the world at the time of the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, when both Koreas marched together under one flag.The nuclear weapons questionWhat has made it possible for such a discussion to even take place? The truth is that a new situation exists precisely because the DPRK now possesses nuclear weapons and the ability to use them if attacked.We in the United States, of course, do not want another war. So how should we regard the nuclear capability of the DPRK?It is a deterrent to a U.S. attack and therefore is an anti-war measure. The Koreans need such a powerful defense as long as they have no other guarantees against another U.S. war. They are the aggrieved party, and it is up to them to decide if and when their safety would be guaranteed without such weapons.The DPRK has never attacked the U.S. They have only defended themselves from U.S. aggression, which took on monstrous proportions during the 1950-53 war.The U.S. military has occupied South Korea since 1945. It sponsored a long line of military dictatorships in the South that carried out bloody repression there against anyone who even whispered sympathy for the North. The people’s movement in the South finally defeated the generals and ushered in civilian rule. However, despite decades of a popular movement against the military occupation, it has not yet been able to rid the country of U.S. troops and bases.We have seen remarkable strides toward a rapprochement between North and South in recent months. And it looked as though the Trump administration was ready to sit down with the DPRK’s Kim Jong Un and South Korea’s Moon Jae-in to discuss concrete measures to defuse military tensions.Now these expectations are up in the air. Trump has appointed as his national security adviser one of the most anti-DPRK figures possible — John Bolton, who in February wrote a column for the Wall Street Journal advocating a “preemptive” military strike against the DPRK. As of this writing, Trump, who at first was for the summit meeting but then rejected it, is now supposedly ­reconsidering.These are life-and-death issues for all the peoples involved. They cannot be left to the whims of this extremely reactionary and unpredictable U.S. administration, which tells the world one thing today and another tomorrow.People who understand the dangers need to make their voices heard. We need more demonstrations and other public statements opposing the current dangerous trend toward war coming from the U.S.U.S. hands off Korea!

Rep. Schiff Statement on President Signing Executive Order Banning Discrimination Against LGBT Workers

Adam Schiff (D-CA), vice chair of the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus (Equality Caucus), released the following statement after President signed an executive order prohibiting federal contractors and agencies from discriminating against employees on the bases of sexual orientation and gender identity:“With Republicans still unwilling to bring up the Employment Non-Discrimination Act in the House – despite bipartisan support during passage in the Senate – the President was right to act to protect LGBT workers in the federal government from being discriminated against. We should be using every avenue available to fight discrimination – it’s just the right thing to do.“Nevertheless, this does not free Congress from the responsibility to pass ENDA and protect all workers from discrimination and we must continue to call for such action, and work to narrow the exemption granted to religious organizations.”Schiff earlier led an effort urging President Obama to issue such an Executive Order. The announcement is an important step towards ending discrimination against LGBT employees and ensuring that they are judged based on the quality of their work and not because of who they are or who they love. The executive order, when implemented, will only protect employees of federal contractors and federal agencies.Schiff is an original co-sponsor of the bipartisan Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which passed the U.S. Senate in November 2013. ENDA currently has 205 cosponsors in the U.S. House of Representatives. The Employment Non-Discrimination Act would establish basic protections in the workplace to prevent discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. There are currently only 18 states (including California) and the District of Columbia that prohibit discrimination on bases of sexual orientation and gender identity, and an additional 3 states that prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. ENDA would provide a basic level of protection against workplace discrimination in a manner modeled closely on Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and would apply to private employers as well as local, state, and federal government employers.

Northside Baptist WMU expanding scope of missions

first_img Print Article The ladies of the Woman’s Missionary Union at Northside Baptist Church in Troy are as busy as bees making lap blankets for people here at home, mission dresses for little girls as far away as Africa and Nicaragua and Christmas shoeboxes for children around the world.Gerald and Juanita Wilkes were called to serve Northside Baptist in March and both have eagerly joined the WMU in the collective desire to broaden the scope of missions at the church. “Northside is dedicated to missions at home and abroad,” Gerald Wilkes, church pastor, said. “The WMU is working to get the blankets, dresses and shoeboxes ready for delivery. We have a dedicated group of ladies and they are an inspiration to others.”Ramona Dunn, WMU member, said the ladies work according to their interests and special talents.“Some ladies sew and others cut and fold and some of are just encouragers,” she said, laughing. “But everybody contributes. It takes all of us and we all enjoy what we do.” Book Nook to reopen The ladies are working on three projects. One is the making of lap blankets or throws.“The throws are small and just the right size to throw over your lap or around you shoulders to keep the chill off you,” she said. “We are making them for residents at local nursing homes and also for the hospital.”Another group of ladies is making pillowcase dress or, to better describe them, mission dresses for little girls in countries were child abductions are prevalent.“What we have learned is that in some countries little girls who are wearing pretty dresses are not often abducted and abused,” Juanita Wilkes said. “The reason is that the dresses are an indication that the little girls have someone who loves and cares for them and that is a deterrent to anyone who might harm them.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Sponsored Content By Jaine Treadwell Latest Stories Published 3:00 am Tuesday, October 25, 2016 You Might Like Goodson: ‘I’m glad I got the chance to serve’   After serving on the Pike County Commission for 24 years, Ray Goodson will retire in November. “I’ve been doing… read more Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Skip Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Each mission dress has a pair of panties with it and also a bead bracelet.The ladies also make miniature stockings that can be stuffed with a single item.

Search for answers in fatal lion mauling puts focus on North Carolina’s exotic animal laws

first_imgCourtesy family of Alexandra Black(BURLINGTON, N.C.) — The investigation into how a lion at a North Carolina wildlife center managed to get loose and kill a young intern is putting a new focus on how keeping exotic animals in private facilities is regulated in the state.North Carolina is one of just four states in the nation with little or no laws for keeping wild animals like lions, bears and primates in captivity, according to The Humane Society of the United States.“Sadly, this incident illustrates the need for strong legislation to better restrict the private possession of dangerous wild animals,” said Kitty Block, acting president and chief executive officer of The Humane Society of the United States.On Sunday, 22-year-old Alexandra Black was killed by a lion at the Conservators Center in Burlington. Caswell County Sheriff’s Office investigators said Black was cleaning an animal enclosure with a professionally trained animal keeper when she was mauled to death.The 14-year-old lion named Matthai had been locked in a separate enclosure but somehow got out and attacked Black, officials said.“I think anytime you have an incident, you have to take time to really assess what happened and that means some investigation. And we need to understand it and make sure that it’s something that never happens again,” Mindy Stinner, executive director of the Conservators Center, told ABC’s “Good Morning America.”Police have released few details about how the animal got out of its locked enclosure.The Conservators Center is regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which inspected the facility on April 2 and found no violations, according to records obtained by ABC News. The USDA’s report showed that the facility housed 85 animals, including 16 lions, three tigers, two leopards and four bobcats.The Conservators Center is not accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.“Most facilities licensed by the United States Department of Agriculture to hold dangerous animals are not accredited by AZA, as is the case with the Conservators Center,” the association said in a statement to ABC News. “Despite this, staff at the Conservators Center acknowledge the value of AZA’s practices. They have also reached out to AZA for assistance, and AZA-accredited facilities are responding with the help and support they need during this tragic time.“We are empathetic to what the staff at the Conservators Center are going through and will assist with anything they need — from animal care to food and supplies.”Black, a graduate of Indiana University, started working as an intern at the facility just 10 days before she was killed, officials at the Conservators Center said in a statement.Personnel at the facility, about 60 miles northwest of Raleigh, were unable to tranquilize the lion, officials said. Sheriff’s deputies who responded to the incident shot and killed the animal in order to retrieve Black’s body, the sheriff’s office said.“Although Alex was with us for a very short time, she made an impact on our community,” the Conservators Center said in a statement to ABC News on Monday. “We are a close-knit family of paid staff and volunteers and are devastated by the loss of this vibrant, smart young woman.”The incident was the latest in a string of attacks on people in North Carolina by exotic animals dating back to 2003, according to The Humane Society of the United States.In September, a Japanese macaque monkey escaped from a backyard cage in Shallotte, North Carolina, and attacked a woman who was outside her house talking to an air-conditioner repairman, who shot the monkey dead. In 2006, a leopard at the New River Zoo in Fleetwood, North Carolina, bit the arm and wrist of a woman who was attempting to pet it while it was in its cage.In 2004, a 14-year-old girl was bitten and seriously injured by her family’s pet tiger when she entered the animal’s enclosure in Lowgap, North Carolina, to take a photo.In 2003, a 10-year-old boy shoveling snow got too close to the fenced enclosure of a neighbor’s 400-pound pet tiger in Millers Creek, North Carolina, and was dragged under a fence by the animal and killed. That same year, the owner of the Charlotte Metro Zoo, a private menagerie in Charlotte, was bitten on the neck by a leopard.Nicole Paquette, vice president of wildlife protection for the Human Society of the United States, told ABC News that many states cracked down on private ownership of wild animals following an incident in 2011 in Zanesville, Ohio, when the owner of a private animal killed himself after releasing 49 exotic animals, including 18 tigers and 17 lions. Police in Zanesville ended up killing most of the animals.“I think it’s pretty important to note that North Carolina has been one of the last holdouts in the country, and there have been numerous attempts by the state legislature to pass one of these types of laws,” Parquette said.In 2015, a bill was proposed in North Carolina that would have regulated the possession and breeding of wild and non-native animals, including big cats and bears, and would have barred the public display of privately owned animals.A watered-down version of the bill passed the state House of Representatives but died in the state Senate.Other states that lack regulations on the ownership of exotic animals are Alabama, Wisconsin and Nevada. In 2012, two pet chimpanzees, one weighing 180 pounds, escaped from a residential backyard and went on a rampage in Las Vegas, pounding on cars and getting into at least one vehicle before police killed one of them and tranquilized the other.“The sad reality is we see this time and time again,” Parquette said. “There are incidences that have happened all across the country. We’re hoping that North Carolina does the right thing this time and takes swift action to prohibit this type of activity in the future.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

US Navy Dives into History: CSS Georgia Salvage Ops

first_img View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Navy US Navy Divers from Mobile Diving and Salvage Unit (MDSU) 2 and Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technicians from Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit (EODMU) 6, in conjunction with archaeologists, conservationists, Naval History and Heritage Command, and the US Army Corps of Engineers, are diving the Savannah river in support of the salvage of Civil War ironclad CSS Georgia.Literally plunging into history, the team is in the water recovering Civil War-era ordnance and projectiles, rendering the site safe for the next stages of the mission.The salvage of the CSS Georgia from the Savannah River is necessitated by the Savannah Harbor Expansion Project, or SHEP. In order to deepen the river—from 42 to 47 feet for larger ships—the ironclad needed to be removed, otherwise it would be demolished with the expansion, as the wreck sits right on the shoulder of the channel used by commercial ships entering the Port of Savannah. Planning took efforts from several sources, starting with the US Army Corps of Engineers.The team is utilizing high-tech sonar, underwater imaging equipment and variety modern-day dive equipment, but the historical importance of the mission isn’t lost in slew of technology.Navy Divers are in the water every day, throughout the world, performing a diverse array of mission sets. With 2015 serving as The Year of the Military Diver, the CSS Georgia is a perfect illustration of their capabilities as they dive into history.[mappress mapid=”16451″]Image: US Navy View post tag: Ops US Navy Dives into History: CSS Georgia Salvage Ops Authorities View post tag: americas View post tag: Salvage Back to overview,Home naval-today US Navy Dives into History: CSS Georgia Salvage Ops July 10, 2015 View post tag: US Navy View post tag: CSS Georgia Share this article View post tag: DIVERS View post tag: Navallast_img read more
