China can significantly increase solar generation by cutting local air pollution—study FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:China’s efforts to reduce chronic air pollution could increase its ability to generate solar power by up to 13% by allowing more sunlight to reach the earth, according to a new study published on Tuesday.China’s so-called photovoltaic potential fell by an average of up to 15% between 1960 and 2015 as a result of pollution, climate researchers from Switzerland, the Netherlands and China said in a report published by the Nature Energy journal. Reverting back to 1960s radiation levels could increase power generation by 12% to 13%, the researchers said, boosting Beijing’s efforts to increase solar’s contribution to the national grid and bring down costs.China has been working to curb choking levels of pollution by cutting coal use, improving fuel standards and encouraging cleaner forms of industry and energy. Hazardous airborne particles known as PM2.5 fell by 42% in 74 major cities from 2013 to 2018.The country’s total installed solar capacity stood at 170 gigawatts at the end of 2018, about 9% of total generating capacity. Solar last year produced 177.5 terawatt-hours of electricity, about 2.5% of the total.China is keen to boost the profitability of solar firms in order to reduce the subsidies paid to renewable energy providers, with the rapid rise in new capacity creating a payment backlog expected to reach 60 billion yuan ($8.7 billion) by next year.The average price paid to solar producers has already been cut from more than 1 yuan/kWh in 2011 to around 0.3 yuan/kWh this year. Regulators said earlier this year that subsidies would be cut to zero by 2021 for onshore wind power generators, meaning they would sell power at the same price as traditional energy sources. Experts say solar could also reach “grid price parity” very soon.More: China’s war on pollution could boost solar power – study
By Dialogo May 05, 2010 Rio de Janeiro state authorities Tuesday said they were repositioning crack police units to combat drug gangs in city slums ahead of the 2014 football World Cup and the 2016 Olympics. The redeployment to a complex of 16 slums near Rio de Janeiro’s international airport known locally as “the Gaza Strip” is especially aimed at putting an end to turf wars that often block major link roads into the city and cause collateral casualties. Eleven people died last weekend in clashes between gangs and police. Officials have already started erecting barriers along 7.6 kilometers (4.7 miles) to hem in the gangs, and incidentally to muffle traffic noise for slum residents. The official in charge of security for Rio, Jose Mariano Beltrame, said the lasso will progressively tighten around the crime-ridden areas. “We need more room… so the police can train in shooting, even from helicopters,” Beltrame said, according to the O Globo daily. A third of Rio’s urban population of six million live in the city’s 1,000 slums, making them a formidable security challenge ahead of the two international sporting events.
Time to designate an inventory attorney Members may comply with the new rule online at floridabar.org January 1, 2006 Regular News Time to designate an inventory attorney To protect clients of an attorney who unexpectedly dies or otherwise becomes unable to practice, the Florida Supreme Court recently amended Bar rules — at the Bar’s request — to provide that members who practice in-state must designate an inventory attorney.The amendment to Rule 1-3.8 takes effect January 1, and the best and easiest way to designate an inventory attorney is to do it online at floridabar.org.Inventory attorneys take possession of the files of a member who dies, disappears, is disbarred or suspended, becomes delinquent, or suffers involuntary leave of absence due to military service, and no other responsible party capable of conducting the member’s affairs is known. The inventory attorney has the responsibility of notifying all clients that their lawyer is no longer able to represent them. The inventory attorney also may give the file to a client for finding substitute counsel; may make referrals to substitute counsel with the agreement of the client; or may accept representation of the client, but is not required to do so.Designated inventory attorneys will be contacted when the need arises and will be asked to serve. Because circumstances change, the designated inventory attorney is not obligated to serve. Inventory attorneys are not directly compensated but may receive reimbursement from The Florida Bar for actual costs incurred while carrying out the duties of an inventory attorney.Only those members who practice in Florida — regardless of where they live — must make a designation. Members who are eligible to practice in Florida, but who do not do so are not required to designate an inventory attorney.Lawyers who practice in Florida — regardless of whether they reside in the state — even if they have only one client (such as in-house counsel or if they represent governmental entities) are required to designate an inventory attorney. Who is not required to designate an inventory attorney? A Florida Bar member who lives in another state and does not practice at all in Florida is not required to designate an inventory attorney, even if the nonresident member is eligible to practice law in Florida.Florida judges and other members who are precluded from practicing law by statute or rule also are not required to designate.Florida resident members engaged in other occupations, even if eligible to practice law in Florida, are not required to designate. Who may be designated as an inventory attorney? Only other members of The Florida Bar may be designated as an inventory attorney.Designated inventory attorneys must be eligible to practice law in Florida. They are not required to be practicing, only that they be eligible to do so.Resident and nonresident members of the Bar may be designated as inventory attorneys. How are inventory attorneys appointed? When the need for an inventory attorney arises, Bar counsel will verify that the designated inventory attorney is eligible to practice law in Florida and shall contact the designated inventory attorney. If the designee agrees to serve, Bar counsel will file a petition with the local circuit court for appointment of the inventory attorney and secure an order of appointment. How do I designate an inventory attorney? The easiest way is to visit Bar’s Web site at floridabar.org. Go to “Member Profile” and look for the “Inventory Attorney Designation” link and fill out the online form. You must already be registered and have an online password to be able to fill out and submit the online form. Members who are not yet registered may follow the instructions on the Web site and fill out the form once they receive their password.The second way to make a designation is to clip the form at the end of this article, fill it out and mail it to: The Florida Bar, Department of Lawyer Regulation, 651 E. Jefferson Street, Tallahassee 32399-2300. How often must I make a designation? Once a designation is made another designation is not required unless the originally designated inventory attorney is no longer willing or able to serve. In such event designation of another inventory attorney may be made online or by the form below.The text of the amendment reads: RULE 1-3.8 RIGHT TO INVENTORY (e) Designation of Inventory Attorney. Each member of the Bar who practices law in Florida shall designate another member of The Florida Bar who has agreed to serve as inventory attorney under this rule. When the services of an inventory attorney become necessary, an authorized representative of The Florida Bar shall contact the designated member and determine the member’s current willingness to serve. The designated member shall not be under any obligation to serve as inventory attorney.
Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Another winter storm is forecast to bring a dangerous wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain to Long Island on Tuesday—with even more messy weather expected later this week, forecasters say.Despite the snow, the state Department of Public Service’s Long Island office said it would still hold its planned public hearing at the William H. Rogers Legislative Building on Veterans Memorial Highway in Smithtown at 7 p.m. on PSEG Long Island and LIPA’s planned 4 percent, 3-year rate hike, according to a spokeswoman from the PSEG-LI office.The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory through through 12 a.m. Wednesday and a winter storm watch from 7 p.m. Wednesday to 7 p.m. Thursday for Nassau and Suffolk counties along with much of the New York Metro area.“Snow develops late Tuesday afternoon…then mixes with sleet and freezing rain Tuesday evening before changing to freezing rain by midnight…then to plain rain late at night,” meteorologists in the agency’s Upton office said in a statement. “The rain…mixes with or changes to snow and sleet Wednesday evening…before changing to all snow around or shortly after midnight Wednesday night. The snow should taper off Thursday afternoon..”One to three inches of snow is predicted to Tuesday into Wednesday. Then, five to eight inches of snow is possible Wednesday into Thursday.Once the storm leaves the area, the weekend forecast calls for clear, sunny skies with temps in the 20s Friday warming up to the 30s Saturday and reaching the 40s early next week.Drivers should be cautious of limited visibility and slippery roadways.
7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading » As the baby boomers are growing older, so grows the need to provide healthcare for this aging population.The number of US healthcare jobs recently surpassed those in manufacturing and retail for the first time in history. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, 5 of the top 10 fastest growing jobs are in healthcare related fields, with employment rates projected to grow as much as 18 percent from 2016 to 2026. This is much faster than the average for all occupations, adding about 2.3 million new jobs in that time frame.Contributing to this industry’s surge in growth is the aging, but still very much active, workforce. By 2025 a quarter of the workforce will be older than 55 — a number that will have doubled over 30 years. With retirement ages pushing back, and couples waiting to start families later, it seems the idea of taking early retirement is for the few and far between. Instead, people are having to plan for life events that occur after 55, impacting their financial planning and requiring them to work later into life, during what would have been considered at one time, their retirement years.While this population trend can be traced back to many causes, the results are still the same. People are living longer, working later in life and needing more healthcare. If you are a credit union with its member base in the health care industry, you better start preparing for the influx of health care professionals that need financial services. It’s time to hone your marketing skills and develop a healthy marketing strategy that appeals to as many members as possible before they are snatched up by another financial institution.
Credit unions are different. It’s in our mission and our model. And it’s in the way we value the financial success of our members.Our difference makes us better. Better than banks and other financial services – the best provider and partner for consumers.But we’re not better at everything. There’s one area where we’re average, falling into the trap of denial or looking the other way. An area where we are not living up to our aspirations to be different and better.We all need to consider our role in ensuring a harassment-free environment within the movement, at all conferences like our most recent CUNA GAC.I’ll go first. I endeavor to treat everyone equitably – with dignity and respect. But have I always done this? Have I never in my life made a comment that made someone uncomfortable? I hope not, but I honestly don’t know for sure. ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »
Everyone who means something on the Croatian wine scene came to Poreč to enjoy top quality wines for three days and socialize with more than 130 exhibitors.”Winemakers have done a lot on quality, but most of all we lack recognition in the world. We are waiting for the Law on Wine, which should provide guidelines, and a strategy that will lead us to the right path should be built into that Law. Trends are changing, new markets are opening, we have a long way to go and great perseverance. “, said Nikola Benvenuti, President of Vinistra, the association of winemakers and winegrowers of Istria at an interesting conference Our experiences: 25 years of Vinistra in the Croatian wine story, which took place after the opening of the largest regional wine exhibition.”Croatian winemakers have shown in the past that the quality of products has grown in all regions and that it is possible to make a living from wine production. When we look at where we are today – we have an umbrella association, we have an international presence, we have created a national program to support the winemaking sector from which we financed brand strategy, we hired marketing expert Toniy Hodges, we have umbrella stamps, we have a website, we have ready-made solutions”, Concluded Božica Marković, director of the Sector for Agriculture, Food Industry and Forestry of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce.The ideal combination – Istrian wines and Zagorje on a plateThe rich accompanying part was followed by the presentation of the book by Đuro Horvat Wine marketing in theory and practice and tasting Pairing Istrian delicacies with Istrian wines chosen by famous sommelier Emil Perdec and Krešimir Mikinac. Laguna wines were presented with a vertical tasting of five excellent Malvasia vintages from 2011 to 2017, and on the first day of Vinistra Plava Laguna Gourmet show brought a surprise from the center of Hrvatsko Zagorje.Zagorje cottage cheese with pumpkin oil and confited duck breast, cream of corn soup with walnut oil, pork fillet sous vide with mushrooms, green vegetable scenery and rye flour crackers, and cheesecake with strawberry gel and pumpkin oil and white mousse chocolate, the menu was presented by the award-winning restaurant of the Zagorje hotel Villa Magdalena and chef Mislav Božić. The guests, including nine Swiss journalists and bloggers, were delighted by the seemingly incompatible – Zagorje cuisine and Istrian wines. The wine part of the story was taken care of by famous winemakers Ravallico with excellent sparkling wine Brigi, Marijan Arman with young Malvasia Gcru, champion of this year’s Vinistra and Muscat White, vintage 2017, and Tomaz with aged Teran Barbarossa from 2015.That wine is one of the strongest assets of Istria was once again confirmed by the great atmosphere and attendance on the first day of the jubilee Vinistra.It used to be black, and then came the shadesThanks to the synergy and partnership of the public and private sector, today wine is an Istrian brand, and Istria has world wines, it was pointed out at the round Wine and Istria – yesterday, today, tomorrowIt used to be just black i bilo, and then the nuances came… Thus, on the eve of the jubilee 25th Vinistra in the Parentium Plava Laguna Hotel, an interesting round table began with the participation of Istrian Prefect Valter Flego, Member of the European Parliament Ivan Jakovčić, Member of Parliament Boris Miletić, former sommelier club president Veljko Ostojić , the Mayor of Poreč Loris Peršurić and three renowned Istrian winemakers Gianfranco Kozlović, Ivica Matošević and Nikola Benvenuti.Ivan Jakovčić said that the name Vinistra was created quite by accident, back in 1993, and its author is Duško Gortan. “Only a few months after the name was created, the first Vinistra was modestly opened, which grew from a small wine exhibition into the most important wine event in the region. Today, Istria has world wines that deserve their place in the world’s top restaurants”, Concluded Jakovčić.Matosevic and Kozlovic said that in the XNUMXs, when they started, they did not know how the story of wine would develop. They worked in silence, with great respect for their Italian and Slovenian neighbors, renowned wine countries. “Today, after 25 years, we have great wines, and this is confirmed by the arrival of the legendary Steven Spurrier at this year’s Vinistra, who was delighted with our Malvasia and the different styles of our winemakers.”, Matosevic pointed out.Veljko Ostojić recalled the early XNUMXs when Vladimir Borošić, the former owner of Zagreb’s Bornstein Wine Shop, brutally told him that Istrian wines were the bottom of Croatian wines. “Today we are at the top of Croatia, but also of the region. 25 years ago we all embraced one very important task. It wasn’t just doing the project. Wine is an integral part of our life, Istrian lifestyle, part of our DNA and it had to be shaped into a product. A sommelier club was launched, through education and thanks to such a professional approach we are at the top today”, Concluded Ostojic.Boris Miletić rhetorically wondered if it might be harder today when Istria is at the top, than 25 years ago when there was a lot of room for the development of viticulture and winemaking. “Additional work needs to be done on brand development. There’s that saying – we’re too small to be average! Wine is not only part of our identity, but also pride. We need to invest more in education, direct more money to the Institute of Agriculture and Tourism and the Agricultural School. We are known for the Istrian community and as we stick together I am convinced of the future and success”, Said Miletic.”Istria has done a lot and we can no longer stop. We have to push further and that was the reason to make the Strategy for the development of Istrian winemaking until 2030, which is in the final phase. The strategy will help us maintain our leading position in Croatia and the region. We must also take into account that in Istria there is a change of generations and not everyone will always continue the family tradition. Some wineries will also be sold, in which case it is very important that whoever buys them plays by our rules”, Said Nikola Benvenuti, President of Vinistra.The mayor of Poreč agreed with that, pointing out that everyone in Istria and Poreč must book for Vinistra in the second week of May, and this can be seen in the excellent announcements for this weekend when 20 percent more tourists are expected. Valter Flego concluded that the sun and the sea are no longer enough, and guests who come to Istria in a high third or fourth place cite the eno-gastronomic offer as the motive for their arrival.After a round table on the terrace of the Parentium Plava Laguna hotel at the B2B meeting of Istrian winemakers with distributors, tourist workers, owners of wine shops and restaurants and sommelier, Istrian wines were tasted, which best showed where Istria is 25 years later.And the whole story about Vinista as a positive argument that association and synergy through clusters / associations is the only real path to strategic and sustainable development, read in the attachment.NIKOLA BENVENUTI, VINISTRA: ISTRIAN WINERS HAVE LONG RECOGNIZED THE STRENGTH OF THE BRAND, THE IMPORTANCE OF COMMUNITY AND ASSOCIATION FOR POSITIONING ON THE WINE MAP OF THE WORLD
Ronaldo ‘delight’ Despite his 35 years Ronaldo shrugged off the quick succession of matches played in hot summer weather after the lockdown, bringing his tally to 31 this season.The Portuguese striker has scored 10 goals since football returned in Italy on June 20, more than any other player in Europe.He also matched former Italy World Cup winner Felice Borel, who was the last player to score 31 goals for Juventus in the 1933-34 season.But he remains three goals behind Serie A’s leading scorer Ciro Immobile, who scored a hat-trick earlier in Lazio’s 5-1 win over Hellas Verona.”Delighted for the second consecutive championship and to continue building the history of this great and splendid club,” said Ronaldo on Instagram.”This title is dedicated to all Juventus fans, in particular to those who have suffered and are suffering from the pandemic that has taken us all by surprise by overturning the world. “It was not easy! Your courage, your attitude and your determination were the strength we needed to face this tight final of the championship and fight to the end for this title that belongs to all of Italy. “A big hug to you all!”The breakthrough came in the final move of the first half, when Pjanic cleverly rolled a pass across the penalty area to allow Ronaldo to lash home his 31st league goal of the season.Juventus made sure of the title in second half when Bernardeschi pounced on the rebound of a Ronaldo shot and tapped in a decisive finish.Sampdoria had no way back into the game and had to play the final 20 minutes a man down when Morten Thorsby was sent off for a second yellow card.But the match could prove costly for Juventus before the return leg of their Champions League last 16 tie against Lyon on August 7, when they need to overturn a 1-0 deficit from the first match in France.Danilo took a knock, while influential forward Paulo Dybala limping off with a muscular problem early in the match will be a worry for Sarri with Lyon’s visit to Turin less than two weeks away. Cristiano Ronaldo powered Juventus to their ninth straight Serie A title on Sunday in a 2-0 win over Sampdoria that put them over the line with two matches to spare.Ronaldo opened the scoring deep into first half stoppage time in Turin and then had a hand in Federico Bernardeschi netting the second after 66 minutes.The five-time Ballon d’Or winner missed a late penalty but Maurizio Sarri’s side moved seven points ahead of second-placed Inter Milan to seal a 36th ‘Scudetto’. Topics : The title is Sarri’s first and extends a record run which Antonio Conte started with three titles from 2012 and Massimiliano Allegri continued with the following five.Sarri’s team had missed the chance to wrap up the title on Thursday when the ‘Old Lady’ of Italian football fell to a 2-1 defeat at Udinese.But they made no mistake at the Allianz Stadium despite being pushed hard by Claudio Ranieri’s Sampdoria, one of the most in-form teams since the return of Serie A from the three-month coronavirus lockdown.”It is the most beautiful success, even the most difficult because we wanted it and suffered,” said defender Leonardo Bonucci. “We started on a new path with a lot of skepticism around us, we gave everything, despite some slip-ups. “It was a complicated year for everyone in the world, it was difficult to return after so many months not playing.”
