‘Clean coal’ projects not so clean after all, analysis finds FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:Champions of coal say the superabundant fossil fuel can be made environmentally friendlier by refining it with chemicals – a “clean coal” technology backed by a billion dollars in U.S. government tax subsidies annually.But refined coal has a dirty secret. It regularly fails to deliver on its environmental promises, as electric giant Duke Energy Corp found.Duke began using refined coal at two of its North Carolina power plants in August 2012. The decision let the company tap a lucrative federal subsidy designed to help the American coal industry reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides – also known as NOx, the main contributor to smog and acid rain – along with other pollutants. In nearly three years of burning the treated coal, the Duke power plants collected several million dollars in federal subsidies. But the plants also pumped out more NOx, not less, according to data from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency analyzed by Reuters.The NOx emission rate at Duke’s Marshall Steam Station power plant in Sherrills Ford, North Carolina, for example, was between 33 percent and 76 percent higher in the three years from 2012 to 2014 than in 2011, the year before Marshall started burning refined coal, the EPA data shows. The utility also discovered that one of the chemicals used to refine the coal, calcium bromide, had reached a nearby river and lakes – raising levels of carcinogens in the water supply for more than a million people in greater Charlotte. Duke stopped using refined coal at the plants in May 2015 because of the water pollution problems, said spokeswoman Erin Culbert. Bromide levels in the region’s drinking water dropped sharply several months later, said Barry Gullett, the city’s water director, in a 2015 memo.Duke’s experience reflects a fundamental problem with the U.S. clean coal incentive program, a Reuters examination has found. Refined coal shows few signs of reducing NOx emissions as lawmakers intended, according to regulatory documents, a Reuters analysis of EPA emissions data, and interviews with power plant owners, scientists and state environmental regulators.Consumption figures compiled by the U.S. Energy Information Administration show that American power plants are on track to burn about 160 million tons of clean coal in 2018 – a fifth of the U.S. coal market. That amount would generate about $1.1 billion in incentives at the current tax credit amount of $7.03 per ton. But most of the plants receiving the subsidy failed to reduce NOx emissions by 20 percent – the threshold required under the policy – in 2017 compared to 2009, the last year before they started burning refined coal, according to a Reuters analysis of EPA data on power plant emissions.More: Special report – U.S. ‘clean coal’ program fails to deliver on smog cuts

StumbleUpon Related Articles In a surprise move, Italy’s communications agency AGCOM has issued an official statement to Italian football clubs, detailing that betting/gambling shirt sponsorships can continue until July 2019.AGCOM’s statement follows an appeal issued by Serie A governance, who last week demanded that Italy’s Ministry for Economic Development, clarify betting sponsorship restrictions set-out in Lega-5Star’s ‘Dignity Decree’, which football stakeholders have deemed to be ‘incomplete’.A key directive of the Lega-5Star coalition government’s Dignity Decree on labour and social reforms, from 1 January 2019 Italian football clubs would be demanded to drop all betting-related marketing/sponsorship contracts.In its mandate, the coalition government would allow football clubs with prior decree arrangements, to continue sponsorship until the end of the 2018/19 Italian football season.Nevertheless, publishing an official opinion by AGCOM secretary Angelo Marcello Cardani, Italy’s communications agency agrees with Serie A leaders, stating that Dignity Decree directives remain incomplete with regards to football advertising/sponsorship.Having delivered an incomplete mandate for football stakeholders, the Coalition should be forced to expand its ‘amnesty’ on betting sponsorships for all existing contracts.Thereafter, following the end of the Italian 2018/19 football season, full Decree provisions will come into full effect.Last Friday, on the publication of AGCOM’s opinion, Rome Serie A club SS Lazio confirmed to supporters that it would continue its sponsorship with European online bookmaker Marathonbet until the end of the season.

After leading his team to victory in the 2008 Connie Hawkins League Championship Game, Anthony Rivers was robbed and brutally murdered. Jason and Vaughn Rivers, Anthony’s brothers, spearheaded this gathering in order to celebrate what would’ve been their brother’s 28th birthday.In past years, the three Rivers brothers had always celebrated together in this manor, and in Anthony’s absence have vowed to continue to do so in his memory. ANTHONY RIVERS Among those in attendance were members of the Connie Hawkins League and PSU alumni and teammates who played alongside the Greyhound on the basketball court. Allderdice head basketball coach Andre McDonald and his staff were there. Also present were members of H.A.W.K.D., and The None In The Chamber Organization, founded by Jason Rivers and friends after his brother’s death to combat violence in the streets of Pittsburgh and surrounding areas.Members of the Rivers family expressed how comforting it was to see everyone coming together in love to celebrate, remember and grieve the life of Anthony Rivers. Throughout the night they laughed, danced, and cried, reminiscing on the days and times of old. Desiring to capture their celebration and its precious moments, they snapped picture after picture. Many held up peace signs and the No. 3 worn on the jersey of Anthony Rivers which was retired in a ceremony held at Penn State University.Nikki Pelegrini, a first cousin of Anthony attended the party wearing a sweatshirt she’d made for the occasion. The sweatshirt drew the attention of many as it displayed a huge bright orange basketball on the front and a verse from a poem written for Anthony encased in angel wings on the back. Others showed their love for Anthony by tattooing their arms with Anthony’s picture, jersey number or name accompanied by the abbreviations R.I.P.As two o’clock approached for the family it was like reliving the moments when they first said goodbye. Smiles became tears as they remembered the sobering thought that as they were celebrating his life as it was, it was, no more. For them, “gone too soon” would always be a pill so hard to swallow. “The night was peaceful and full of family, friends, laughter and love, which is what I’d hoped it would be, in tribute to Anth,” said Jason Rivers. by Carla CrawfordMany patrons poured into Arts, a popular bar located on the corner of 29th and 10th in the Strip District on the night of Nov. 4, for their usual midweek social gathering. For the family and friends of Anthony Rivers, AKA Greyhound, whose life was abruptly taken violently on the streets of Garfield in the early morning of Aug. 5, 2008, the night was all but usual.

Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Box#cloud#enterprise#storage dan lyons How Intelligent Data Addresses the Chasm in Cloud There’s a lot of talk in Silicon Valley about the decline of consumer Internet companies and the rising interest in companies that sell software to enterprises.After all, Zynga and Groupon, the darlings of the consumer wave, have tanked. Facebook’s stock collapse robbed the company of some of its sparkle. And suddenly all those boring companies that have been toiling away down on the San Francisco Bay peninsula selling boring software to boring enterprises don’t seem quite so boring anymore — especially after we saw Workday, which sells cloud-based human-resources software to the enterprise, pull off a phenomenal IPO, and when we have investment bankers talking about a trillion-dollar wealth transfer that’s about to take place in the enterprise market.Yes, suddenly the enterprise is cool again. And nobody is loving this more than Aaron Levie, the 27-year-old co-founder and CEO of Box, which sells cloud-based data storage and collaboration software to enterprises. “We’re feeling fortunate,” Levie said when we sat down for a chat at Box’s offices in Los Altos, Calif.A Smart Bet On The EnterpriseFive years ago, Levie figured out that the enterprise ultimately would be a better market than consumer products. He focused Box entirely on the enterprise. Back in 2007, that might have seemed like a crazy thing to do. Facebook and Twitter were the hot new things. All the so-called smart money in the valley was chasing consumer stuff.Just two years ago, in 2010, John Doerr of Kleiner Perkins was raving about Zynga, citing it’s fast growth and profits. This was right after he launched the $250 million sFund to try to create even more Zyngas. A few months later he made a huge late-stage bet in Groupon — at about twice the price that the stock carries today. Meanwhile the guy who created the Flip camera is raising new VC money to make melted cheese sandiwches. Color Labs raised $41 million for God only knows what. We had Airbnb, then a bunch of Airbnb clones, and then another generation of clones that were the Airbnb of cars, scooters, bikes, whatever. We had Sean Parker raising $33 million to make a clone of Chatroulette.Meanwhile, Levie and everyone else in the enterprise arena were building real businesses and not getting a lot of attention. For the past five years, Levie watched the consumer companies boom and bust while Box took a slower, more difficult path, creating a sales force and learning how to sell to big companies.Now, of course, everyone is hot for enterprise, and look who’s sitting pretty.Box’s War ChestBox has raised $285 million in venture funding, including a huge $125 million round in July that valued the company at $1.2 billion. Levie won’t disclose revenue figures, but allows that Box has 650 employees, roughly double the level from a year ago. He says revenue growth is tracking with head-count growth, meaning sales are up roughly 100% year over year.Box’s software is used by 14 million people inside 140,000 companies, including 92% of the Fortune 500.And this is just the beginning. Pretty soon that trillion-dollar transfer in the valley will begin in earnest, draining out of the legacy vendors and into Box and other cloud-based vendors.“The dam has broken,” says Levie, who often speaks so quickly that it’s impossible to keep up with him. “We’re seeing all this innovation. There’s more opportunity than ever before. We’re going to see, over the next decade, a huge changing of IT architecture.”A New Cloud Architecture EmergesEvery day, Levie says, he’s on the phone with CIOs who are building what he calls “the new cloud architecture.” Essentially this means replacing a list of on-premises software with cloud-based alternatives that do more and cost less.A new lineup is emerging that includes software from NetSuite for ERP, Salesforce.com for CRM, Zendesk for help-desk management, Workday for human resources, Domo and GoodData for business intelligence, Okta and Ping Identity for identity management, AirWatch and MobileIron for mobile device management — and Box for cloud-based storage and sharing.The Next Market Will Be BiggerLevie agrees with the premise that massive amounts of revenue and market capitalization will swing over to upstarts. But he says this shift is about more than that.As he sees it, this is not just a matter of moving the same dollars from one bucket into another. Levie believes that the proliferation of low-cost tablets is creating a much bigger addressable market.The fact that cloud-based programs cost far less than legacy programs means that even tiny companies can afford them, not just the medium- and large-scale enterprises that can pay for top-dollar products made by companies like Oracle and SAP.“The one thing that people don’t seem to realize yet is that there’s a good chance that the market will be far larger at the end of all this,” Levie says. “It’s going to be massive.”Forget Those Fickle ConsumersEnterprise customers do tend to choose products with a great deal of caution, but they stick with them for a long time. Consumers go crazy over a new app or game and quickly move on.The pain is already being felt in the consumer sector. The Wall Street Journalreports that funding for consumer Web companies dropped 42% in the first nine months of this year. Venture capitalist Fred Wilson, whose firm, Union Square Ventures, mostly invests in consumer Internet companies, says things have changed.“We are still in the early innings of this more challenging environment,” Wilson said.I’m sure that stinks for the next 10 companies that were hoping to make Instagram clones. But for the rest of us? Maybe it’s not so bad.After a decade of going crazy over Farmville and Angry Birds and me-too photo-filtering apps and other such fluff, Silicon Valley is finally getting back to its roots — making real software to run real businesses.Not a moment too soon, in my opinion.

Liverpool boss Klopp: 6 points are nothing. We’re creating our own historyby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp isn’t getting carried away after victory over Newcastle United.The Reds have been installed as the new title favourites after they comfortably beat Newcastle 4-0 and Manchester City lost for successive matches, going down 2-1 at Leicester City.Now six points clear at the top of the table, Klopp said: “That means nothing. We play Arsenal and City. I had no idea how any other teams were playing, I didn’t even know where they were playing.”Afterwards I got the results and I can say it didn’t do a lot for me. It is just information. It’s good that we have six points than other teams, or seven, but that is pretty much all.”Klopp added: “We want to create our own history. It is the first Liverpool team in the Premier League unbeaten (at the halfway stage of the season).”All good numbers but there are 19 games to go. So we play Arsenal, we play City, we play Tottenham. We play all of them again. There is a long way to go, we all know that.”We have to win our games we have to be focused, we have to be really in the mood and have tunnel vision and see where it leads us to.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
