Hive Energy feathers nest in Turkey with new regional headquartersThe British solar developer is eyeing a 50 MW portfolio of solar PV projects in the country, and says its new HQ in Ankara will allow it to capture a number of opportunities in the region. October 26, 2015 Ian Clover Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share Hive Energy, a London-based developer of solar PV projects, has opened a new regional headquarters in Ankara, Turkey, as the company aims to expand strategically into southeastern Europe and the neighboring regions. The opening of the HQ will enable Hive Energy to achieve its aim of installing 50 MW of solar PV capacity in Turkey over the next few years, tapping into the countrys “relatively undeveloped solar PV market”, said Hive Energy CEO Files Redpath. “Turkey represents the next exciting opportunity for solar in Europe,” Redpath said. “To date there has been very limited solar PV development and investment in the country. Turkey has a high performing economy and although current electricity consumption per capita is 40% lower than the OECD average, this demand is forecast to develop significantly in the coming years.” Hive Energy has appointed Middle East Technical University graduate Tolga Metin as general manager of the regional office, which is located near to Ankaras Energy Ministry and the Energy Market Regulatory Authority Headquarters (TEDAS). Support for renewable energy development in Turkey has recently been given solid backing by the government, which has increased its clean energy target for 2023 to 3 GW of solar PV under the National Renewable Energy Action Plan. To help achieve this, projects in Turkeys unlicensed PV segment which covers installations below 1 MW are entitled to a fixed 10-year PPA of $0.133/kWh. Further, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is poised to offer 500 million in funding to support Turkeys renewable energy industry.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.

Born in the 90s I would give myself the tag of a pure 90s kid for so many reasons. Weren’t those such wonderful times, less of internet and more fun. Well, that’s what everyone says and agrees to. We had the coolest fashion and the best shows to watch. How can a 90s kid skip mentioning the Disney cartoons? We were a generation who had the best cartoon shows to watch. I would wait eagerly for 6 pm every evening when I have the television all by myself to watch and enjoy Disney Hour. I am sure any reader from my generation can vividly recall how much fun we had watching Disney Hour and also Just Kids, a show about the two friends Simba (The Lion) and Bakshaut (the deer). Disney shows like, Mickey Mouse, Duck Tales, Baloo, Chip and Dale, Timon and Pumpa, Donald Duck would make my weekday evenings so much happier. And on Sundays, the best part was watching these favourite shows in the morning hours. Oh! How I miss those days. These cartoons were so much different from the shows the kids enjoy or watch these days.Well, earlier when cartoons were just enjoyed by kids, now the impact of the present shows are often discussed and also researched. Back in our days, I would define cartoons as the best thing on TV and that’s it. But gradually when I read and heard about how today we discuss and study about its impact on the watchers I related it to the aspect of media and its impact on the consumers. I have realised this after watching a kid from the family always trying to punch and hit us, with murmuring dialogues from his favourite cartoon show. Oh yes, I too got hit by his cricket bat at times too!Media effect on the consumers has been a topic of debate always. Some would argue on how the media contents positively impact the consumers and their behaviour while some would stick to the fact how the media contents create a negative impact on the consumers. Well, it’s a never-ending debate. There are theories which argue the fact that media shoots contents and messages to the audience and the audience here is helpless and thus the contents impact the consumers both negatively or positively. There also theories where we see how a consumer is responsible for absorbing the contents and letting it affect their behaviour. The impact of media contents in the behaviour and psychology of the consumers is often debated.Even in the case of the animated contents (cartoon shows), the impact is hugely discussed. We all love and enjoy watching Tom and Jerry. Many studies have been conducted on the impact of this show on the kids who are exposed to it. There are studies which claim that the show Tom and Jerry encourages its audiences especially the kids to be violent because Tom and Jerry constantly run and hits each other. And watching which, the kids are psychologically affected.Likewise, the animated movie Happy Feet was criticized for promoting anti-religious or antichristian belief and also having songs with lyrics about sex. Similarly the famous animated character SpongeBob too had to face many controversies. SpongeBob Squarepants besides being one of the popular and favourite kids show had its own dose of controversy and criticism for promoting homosexuality.But without any doubt, we have the IceAge series where kids are educated about the changing environmental issues and about the continental drift. Mowgli teaches us to live in harmony with nature and love animals. I mean how cool is that. Like I have mentioned earlier, there are both positive and negative arguments on the media contents and we can hardly escape that.Well, with times even though the animated shows have changed, yet their effects on its audience cannot be ignored. Media have always held the power to impact, influence and affect the audience. But as times are changing, so are the forms of media. From traditional to the new media the effect on the audience has been undeniable. But with time there has been a change in the type of consumers. They have evolved from being a passive agent to an active media consumer and hence there has been a change in the direct impact on the consumers. But as the kids are merely able to act as a passive consumer, the effect on them is huge. The contents and the shows they watch impact their behaviour and psychology to an extent.But no wonder kids won’t stop loving cartoons, but all we can hope for is, responsible watching guidance and also good and positive contents and rest depends on the consumer’s perspective on how they choose to react to the contents they are exposed to.

Former Irish finance minister Brian Lenihan has died at the age of 52.Lenihan was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2009 but continued working full-time as the country’s finance minister until his Fianna Fáil party lost the general election in February. In the past couple of weeks, however, his condition deteriorated and he passed away in his west Dublin home this morning.As Ireland’s finance minister in 2008-11, Lenihan was responsible for agreeing the country’s bail-out deal with the EU and the International Monetary Fund. He was the only Fianna Fáil member elected in Dublin in February’s general election and since then has been deputy leader of the party as well as its finance spokesman.First elected to parliament in 1996, Lenihan was a member of one of Ireland’s most powerful political families. His father Brian, his brother Conor, and his aunt Mary O’Rourke all served in Irish governments. Lenihan was minister for justice in 2007-08 and minister for children in 2002-07.He is survived by his wife and two children.The European Voice profile of Brian Lenihan can be read here.
“One guy can ruin an instrument. Jimi Hendrix, bless his heart — how I wish he was still around — almost inadvertently ruined guitar. Because he was the only cat who could do it like that. Everybody else just screwed it up, and thought wailing away (on the guitar) is the answer. But it ain’t; you’ve got to be a Jimi to do that, you’ve got to be one of the special cats.” – Keith Richards46 years ago today, the world was robbed of one of the most influential rock stars of all time, Jimi Hendrix. It’s difficult to quantify his significance (because it’s massive), but sufficed to say that a conversation about American music cannot go very far before the brilliance of Jimi Hendrix is brought into the mix. From the onset, at his shell-shocking American unveiling at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival, to his unforgettable rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner” at Woodstock in 1969 and playing to the largest crowd of his career on July 4, 1970 at the Atlanta International Pop Festival, Hendrix was always pushing the envelope musically. He spurred on a generation of young musicians to challenge the status quo of what rock music is or could be, and to pick up a guitar and do their best Hendrix impressions in front of their mirrors.In remembrance of one of the greatest talents Music has ever seen, here are 7 Jimi Hendrix performances showcasing some of the guitar player’s mammoth legacy:“Like A Rolling Stone” at Monterey Pop Festival, Monterey, CA – 6/18/67Cafe au Go-Go, New York, NY [AUDIO] – 3/17/68Set: Little Wing, Everything’s Gonna Be Alright, Three Little Bears Jam, Jam, Call It Stormy Monday (But Tuesday Is Just As Bad), Blues In CKonserthuset, Stockholm, Sweden – 1/9/69Set: Killin’ Floor, Spanish Castle Music, Fire, Hey Joe, Voodoo Chile (Slight Return), Red House, Sunshine Of Your Love “Star Spangled Banner” at Woodstock, Bethel, NY – 8/18/69“Machine Gun” at The Fillmore East, New York, NY – 1/1/70“Purple Haze” at Atlanta International Pop Festival, Atlanta, GA – 7/4/70 [AUDIO]BONUS: Jimi Hendrix & Buddy Guy Jam Session (1968)

While studying mosquitoes near the waters of Kenya’s Lake Victoria, the researchers unexpectedly came across a protective fungus called ‘Microsporidia MB,’ which was already in the bodies of the insects.POPULAR: Researchers Develop Hospital Robot That Uses UV Light to Kill Viruses, Bacteria, and GermsNow, their goal is to disseminate the microbe in at least 40% of mosquitoes in malaria-infected regions.Two main methods are being considered: the mass release of spores of the microbe in areas where many mosquitoes live, or implanting the microbe in male mosquitoes (who don’t bite) in the lab, who would then spread it to female mosquitoes, who spread the disease through their bites.Equally important is the fact that neither of these approaches would kill the mosquitoes, thus preserving the delicate balance between ecosystems and food chains.RELATED: Mexican Students Devise Natural Mosquito Repellent to Avert Zika VirusTheir promising lab research was published in the prestigious scientific journal, Nature, where they wrote “These findings are significant in terms of regional malaria transmission and epidemiology as well as risk-mapping.”Such a program would be the biggest leap forward in the effort to eradicate malaria since infections had dropped by 40% leading up to 2014 due to mass mosquito net distribution by UNICEF and their partners such as the Global Fund.– Photo by Dean Calma / IAEA, CC licenseSHARE the Breakthrough With Friends on Social Media…AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMore
