Someday we will share the fruits of his labour.”Guile continues: “More lasting, Dave has built a creative team that will shape the stories Beamdog tells in the years to come. He has freely shared his incredible wealth of storytelling and narrative design experience with the developers, designers, and artists around him. We’ve all learned a lot from Dave and we hope he picked up a trick or two from us as well.”There’s no word on what Gaider will move on to do next – even the Beamdog team are keen to find out.Gaider also announced his departure via Twitter, thanking Beamdog president Trent Oster for bringing him into the fold and wishing all the best for the team as they continue.Beamdog is perhaps best known for reviving classic RPGs such as Baldur’s Gate and Icewind Dale with enhanced editions for new platforms, with BioWare hit Neverwinter Nights next on the agenda.Related JobsSenior Game Designer – UE4 – AAA United Kingdom Amiqus GamesProgrammer – REMOTE – work with industry veterans!

SEIA calls for investment tax credit rethink

first_imgSEIA calls for investment tax credit rethinkThe U.S. solar industry fears plans to end the ITC could decimate the industry. Rhone Resch has called upon president Obama to rethink his solar tax credit plans. March 5, 2014 Max Hall Finance Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share With U.S. president Barack Obama having confirmed fears the investment tax credit (ITC) which has helped drive the country’s solar boom will come to an end in 2017, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) has called for a rethink. Rhone Resch, president and CEO of the U.S.’ solar energy industry body says plans to end the ITC on December 31, 2016, would hamstring the sector by driving away investors. President Obama revealed in his budget for fiscal year 2015 on Monday, the ITC will stop at the end of 2016 leaving solar investors only the much-less-lucrative production tax credit as an incentive. The ITC, introduced in 2006, allows solar developers to write off tax equivalent to up to 30% of the development costs of solar projects once projects come into service. ITC helped drive 12.5 GW of solar capacity Resch claims the introduction of the ITC has seen installed solar capacity in the U.S. rise from 680 MW to 13 GW and created 143,000 ‘good-paying’ solar jobs. Under the terms of the PTC, introduced by the Energy Policy Act of 1992, solar developers will be able to write-off income tax equivalent to only $0.022/kWh generated by projects. “The PTC simply can’t address the upfront costs of fuel-free solar projects, and we believe the administration’s sudden, 180-degree shift in tax policy could have devastating consequences on the future development of solar energy in America,” said Resch in a press release issued by the SEIA this morning. Fuel cell and small wind project investors will also lose out on the 30% tax redemption offered by the ITC with geothermal, microturbines and combined heat and power projects set to lose a 10% allowance under the credit, at the end of 2016.Popular content The Hydrogen Stream: 20 MW green hydrogen plant in Finland, two Australian projects move forward Sergio Matalucci 20 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy want to set up a 20 MW blue hydrogen production facility in the U.K. Australia’s Origin Energy wants to build a hy… Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

First turbine for Khobab Wind Farm

first_img BRICS Low carbon, solar future could increase jobs in the future – SAPVIA UNDP China, CCIEE launch report to facilitate low-carbon development Finance and Policy The Khobab Wind Farm, situated in the Northern Province, has completed the lifting of the first of its 61 wind turbine generators, ahead of schedule.According to a company statement, the first power will be exported in the next three to four months, with all 61 turbines to supply electricity to the national grid by end-2017.“This is a crucial point in the construction of the wind farm and even more pleasing that we are not just ahead of schedule but also on budget,” said Kevin Foster, Project Manager of Khobab Wind Farm. Read more…Khobab Wind Farm technologyThe company explains that the wind turbines, which are 100m tall to allow for optimum energy production, can take up to three days to erect, weather dependent.The three 53m blades, made from fibreglass reinforced epoxy, are connected to the rotor at ground level before being lifted to the top of the turbine tower.This is a complicated lifting exercise, in which one crane raises the assembled rotor whilst another smaller crane and taglines guide the rotor into the correct position.The heaviest component is the nacelle, which contains the generator and gearbox; and weighs 82.5 tonnes.When operating at full capacity, the Khobab Wind Farm will generate approximately 563,500MWh of clean renewable energy per year; this is expected to supply electricity to power up to 120,000 South African homes.Selecting the right teamThe firm highlighted that the same team was used that installed the turbines at Noupoort Wind Farm and the Loeriesfontein Wind Farm. Read more…Foster commented: “Working with an experienced crew, makes all the difference.”The site was chosen because of its excellent wind resource, its proximity to national roads for wind turbine transportation, the favourable construction conditions, municipality and local stakeholder support, the straightforward electrical connection into Eskom’s Helios substation approximately 7km south of the site, and studies showed that there would be minimal environmental impact.

Manhunt underway for teens, including 2 accused of murder, who escaped from Nashville jail

first_imgMetro Nashville Police Department(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) —  Police are searching for four teenagers, including two accused of murder, who escaped from a juvenile detention center in downtown Nashville over the weekend.Murder suspects Decorrius Wright, 16, and Morris Marsh, 17, allegedly ran out of the Davidson County Juvenile Detention Center at around 10 p.m. Saturday night along with two other inmates, identified as 17-year-old Brandon Caruthers and 15-year-old Calvin Howse, authorities said Sunday.The teens were on a work detail when their staff supervisor left them to address a fight at another location inside the facility, according to police. They managed to get onto an elevator and used staff protocols to ride to the ground floor where they went through a series of doors and exited to the outside.Authorities said they are considered dangerous and are asking for the public’s help in locating them. Authorities said at least 35 minutes elapsed before the Metro Nashville Police Department was notified of the escape.Wright is accused in the murder of 24-year-old Kyle Yorlets, a Nashville musician who was fatally shot in an alley behind his home in February, according to police. Marsh is suspected of killing 19-year-old Charles Easley in April.Caruthers had been transferred to adult court on an August 2018 armed robbery case in south Nashville, according to police. Howse was last arrested Nov. 21 on charges of auto theft and gun possession, police said.Police were not aware of any confirmed sightings as of Sunday afternoon. The department said it reviewed surveillance footage from a store in Clarksville, Tennessee, located about 50 miles northwest of Nashville, in connection to a possible sighting, but investigators later determined that it was unrelated.“After further review of the Clarksville market video from multiple angles by an MNPD Juv Crime Task Force officer in Clarksville it has just been determined that the persons in the video are not the escaped teens,” the department said in a tweet Sunday. “The investigation is continuing in Davidson County.”ABC News does not normally name juveniles, but are doing so because police said they are dangerous individuals and have released their names and photos. Anyone with information about the escapees are asked to call Nashville’s Emergency Communications Center at 615-862-8600 immediately. Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

first_imgFredrik Eklund, Julia Spillman and John Gomes (Getty, iStock)Agents are trying to take back the power as virtual tours and contact-less showings threaten to displace them.Front and center is Julia Spillman, Douglas Elliman broker and CEO of the Eklund-Gomes Team, who is leading an effort to develop an app that she said would put agents “back into the driver’s seat.”Read moreSeven agents splinter off from Eklund-Gomes teamTrial by fire: Virtual showings put to the test“People are looking for that bubble”: Brick Underground’s CEO on a market under lockdown Spillman said that as the pandemic shut down the residential brokerage business she became “really nervous” as agents and consumers began using technology platforms that don’t necessarily require an agent’s involvement.“We have to insert ourselves into the equation,” she said. “I had to find a way that my agents were going to be in a lead role still.”To do it, she is turning — somewhat ironically — to technology: The Eklund-Gomes Team has joined forces with California-based web design firm Agent Image to develop an application allowing agents to assemble all virtual assets for a property in one place.The effort actually began in February, before the coronavirus was widely considered a major threat to Americans and a month before lockdowns commenced.Agent Image, a 300-person firm, pitched Spillman on a new platform where agents can aggregate links, videos and custom content they create for a property in one application to show to clients as a digital experience, presentation, email or printout.The app integrates existing technology, such as Matterport virtual tours, and allows agents to customize the app to display their personal branding to clients. It will also have a built-in video chat capability.As Brian Shorr of Agent Image put it, the app brings together technologies that agents are already using on various platforms and “put it in a branded wrapper.” Jon Krabbe, co-founder and managing partner of the California-based firm, said the app “justifies” the work of agents by giving them a platform to gather disparate assets and create a uniform experience.The development costs are being paid for by Agent Image. The Eklund-Gomes Team agreed to give feedback and beta-test the app in exchange for exclusive use of it this summer. Come fall, Agent Image expects to roll out the unnamed app to the industry as a whole.Agents will have to pay a monthly subscription fee, which has yet to be determined.Spillman said the app was born partly out of fear “that the industry wouldn’t step up.” She said she has felt “disappointed” by the array of technology available for agents to work remotely and believes the new app will ensure agents stay at the forefront — something that she doubts would happen on its own.“[The pandemic] is going to change the way we do business,” she said. “We’d be very naive, I think, to think that business is just going to go back to normal.”Write to Erin Hudson at [email protected] This content is for subscribers only.Subscribe Nowlast_img read more

Police say while the bills look pretty close to a real one, there are two big giveaways, the magnetic strip is on the wrong side of the bill, and the watermark face is that of Alexander Hamilton and not Ben Franklin.They say also look for the serial number, D-F-4-5-2-4-8-9-9-1-A, which has been on all the fake bills so far. Anyone with information, or if you have received one of the bills, is asked to contact the Warsaw Police Department.When held in light, the bills show the improperly placed magnetic strip and the wrong face watermark.

Italy the new Greece on migration frontline: Frontex

first_img“For the first six months of 2016, there were 360,000 illegal entries in the EU, which is higher than what we saw last year, but the influx has been diminishing since April,” Leggeri said.In April, Frontex said arrivals on the Greek islands were down 90 percent compared to the previous month.A Frontex spokesman said the closure of the Greece-Macedonia border earlier this year also contributed to the declining numbers of refugees arriving in Greece, though he did not specify how many refugees arrived in Greece and Italy individually prior to the migration deal and border closure.Frontex said more than 1.5 million people tried to reach Europe last year, with the majority of them wanting to get to western European countries via the so-called Balkan route. Italy has overtaken Greece to become the country on Europe’s migration frontline, with about 750 people arriving per day, the head of the EU border control agency Frontex said on Tuesday.Around 50 migrants per day arrive in Greece, which used to be the main point of entry for migrants.Fabrice Leggeri said the flow of refugees had slowed since the EU-Turkey migration deal came into force, Reuters reports.last_img read more
