TRIG Notes Further Offshore Wind Investment Opportunities

first_imgThe Renewables Infrastructure Group (TRIG), which entered the offshore wind market with the recently acquired 14.7% indirect equity interest in Sheringham Shoal, sees further investment opportunities in the sector, according to its annual results for 2017.TRIG said that previously commissioned UK renewable energy capacity still owned by developers is expected to continue to provide deal flow for the company for several years ahead. Future acquisition opportunities that TRIG sees lie in areas which may include further offshore wind and storage, as well as projects that may become commercially viable without subsidy, such as onshore wind projects and solar PV as deployment costs continue to fall.Discussing the renewables growth opportunities, the company said that the rapidly growing offshore wind sector in the UK is likely to match the capacity of onshore wind and solar once current construction is built out. Looking at the capacity of operational projects, TRIG pointed out that UK operating offshore wind farms now have a combined 5.1GW of generating capacity with further build-out being projected, and Germany has a further 5.3GW of operating projects.The company’s investment policy allows investment in sectors other than onshore wind and solar PV of up to 20% of portfolio value. Last year’s investments in the Broxburn battery storage project and Sheringham Shoal offshore wind farm amounted in aggregate to approximately 9% of TRIG’s portfolio value at 31 December 2017.last_img read more

Street’s euthanasia bill a grave threat to Downs community

first_imgSaving Downs 25 July 2013New Zealand Labour Party MP Maryan Street has a private members bill for euthanasia sitting in the ballot box in Parliament. If this bill is drawn and subsequently made law, it paves the way for the un-consented killing of people with Down syndrome in New Zealand. Such a situation is entirely unacceptable and will be opposed in the strongest terms.If this concept sounds farfetched, just look at the draft bill.…There are many good doctors who support our community and are committed to protecting life. But, they won’t be the certifying medical practitioners. Let’s be clear here. A certifying medical practitioner is by definition a supporter of euthanasia. Add in a negative bias many Doctors have towards those with Down syndrome and we have a toxic mix, the possibility of a legal pathway to the killing of people with Down syndrome, effectively with impunity.Maybe we would give all doctors the benefit of the doubt that they will comply with the law. But, we can recognise the negative bias many of them have towards our community. The type of bias where at Waikato and Auckland Hospitals they encourage late term abortions for planned and wanted pregnancies when there is a diagnosis of Down syndrome or Spina Bifida. Maybe some of these pro-euthansia “certifying medical practitioners” think people with Down syndrome are a burden, some type of disadvantage (as described by bio-ethicists at Otago University), a life unworthy of life. We have heard it all before. Maybe an adult with Down syndrome is poorly in hospital and they are taking up resources that a “normal” person would better benefit from.http://www.savingdowns.com/streets-euthanasia-bill-a-grave-threat-to-our-community/last_img read more

Arsenal closing in on duo

first_img Some of the Arsenal squad, including Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey and goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, had their first pre-season fitness training session at London Colney on Tuesday afternoon, under the watchful eye of assistant manager Steve Bould, with Arsene Wenger still out at the World Cup on media duty for French TV. Carl Jenkinson was another put through his paces, and the right-back is expected to face competition for a starting place from Debuchy next season with the France international set to finalise the formalities of his £10million switch from Newcastle in the coming days, with suggestions a medical has already been completed. There was positive news from the Gunners camp on Tuesday as Abou Diaby, a long-term injury absentee last season, was able to take part in the fitness sessions and could yet prove an asset for Wenger next season. Arsenal’s players will return to pre-season training on a staggered basis following the World Cup – with German trio Per Mertesacker, Mesut Ozil and Lukas Podolski all out in Brazil for the duration. Despite Wenger not being on site, Arsenal have remained busy in their summer recruitment drive. Defensive cover is needed following the departure of Bacary Sagna to Manchester City on a free transfer after lifting the FA Cup at Wembley, while goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski has joined Swansea. The signing of Sanchez, though, would present another major move by the Gunners, who smashed their transfer record at the end of last year’s summer window to bring in Ozil from Real Madrid. A defensive midfielder is also said to be on Wenger’s wanted list, with Lars Bender at Bayer Leverkusen a long-term target. Arsenal also released several players at the end of their contracts, including Nicklas Bendtner. The Denmark forward has several options, reported to be both from within the Premier League as well as European sides. Arsenal step up their pre-season schedule in New York at the end of the month ahead of hosting the Emirates Cup and the FA Community Shield against Manchester City at Wembley on August 10. Arsenal remain confident of pushing through a £30million deal for Chile winger Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona and expect to complete the signing of France defender Mathieu Debuchy later this week. Press Association Sanchez is understood to have instructed his representatives to close negotiations with the Gunners after deciding against offers from both Liverpool and Juventus. Reports in Spain suggest Barcelona have accepted Sanchez’s desire to leave and head to London rather than Anfield, where he could have been used as a makeweight in a potential deal for Luis Suarez. last_img read more

Premier League urged to help refs

first_img Conducted by Usurv for Press Association Sport, 73 per cent of 1000 participants said they support the use of footage to ensure the right decisions are made. Referees have been widely criticised after a series of errors this season with former chief Keith Hackett labelling standards after Christmas as ‘disastrous’. The performance of referees has come to the fore once again following Chelsea’s match with Burnley at the weekend, with Martin Atkinson electing not to send off Ashley Barnes for for a studs-up challenge on Nemanja Matic and subsequently dismissing the Serb, who bundled Barnes to the ground in the aftermath. Blues boss Jose Mourinho called it an “end of career tackle” and Atkinson will now not take charge of a game at the weekend. It is the latest in a long line of decisions which may have been changed had the official been able to see replays after the incident. Those 60 and over were more likely to support the use of video replay, with 79 per cent saying yes, while the 50-59-year-olds were more dubious with only 68 per cent keen for video replays. Those in Yorkshire and Humber are keen for change with 78 per cent wanting replays to be introduced, while Londoners were more sceptical, with 65 per cent wanting replays. :: We asked 1000 people – Is it time for video replays to be used in Premier League football? Responses: Yes – 73 per cent (727 responses) No – 27 per cent (273 responses) The time is right for the Premier League to start using video replays to help referees, according to over 70 per cent of people in a survey.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

(Photo by Sean M. Haffey/Getty Images)ExpandANAHEIM — Mike Trout forces managers to do crazy things, and the Angels made Bob Melvin pay.The Oakland A’s manager intentionally walked Trout in the eighth inning with runners at first and second and a one-run lead, loading the bases and pushing the potential go-ahead run into scoring position.It was an unconventional move, even against Trout, and it backfired.Shohei Ohtani then drew a walk to tie the score, and Dustin Garneau’s walk-off double an inning later gave the Angels a wild 10-9 victory on Wednesday night. The 4-hour, 13-minute game was the longest nine-inning game in Angel Stadium history. Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield “It was a rollercoaster tonight,” Garneau said. “Up and down and us coming back and shutting the door at the end. It was fun to watch.”Brian Goodwin singled with two outs in the ninth, stole second, and scored when Garneau’s drive dropped over the head of left fielder Robbie Grossman and bounced over the fence.“I knew I hit it pretty well but once it went up I thought ‘It’s too high. I don’t know if it will go anywhere,’ ” Garneau said. “Then it kept drifting and somehow it went down and found some dirt.”The Angels could then celebrate a victory that didn’t seem likely after they trailed 7-1. After homers by Trout and Ohtani helped them take an 8-7 lead in the fourth, a taxed bullpen let that get away and they trailed again 9-8 in the eighth.But they had another rally in them. Jonathan Lucroy singled – snapping an 0-for-24 slump – and Tommy La Stella singled with two outs, bringing Trout to the plate.center_img Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros “It wasn’t in my mind (to be walked),” Trout said. “I was ready to hit. I feel good at the plate. I wanted to hit.”Trout, who had homered earlier in the game, was instead ushered to first base.“Going into the game, the guy you don’t want to beat you is Trout,” Melvin said. “Obviously it’s a tough decision, but I felt like it was our best chance.”Lefty Ryan Buchter then entered with no margin for error against Ohtani, and he walked him on a 3-and-2 pitch, tying the score.“Ever since I started playing baseball, I’ve never had anyone get intentionally walked in front of me (before coming to the Angels), especially when first base was filled like tonight,” Ohtani said through his interpreter. “I didn’t really get a feeling like I needed to do something more. But since it’s Mike Trout, they don’t want Mike Trout to beat them, and I know that. It’s kind of natural for them to put him on base.”It was Ohtani’s fourth RBI of the night, after he had hit a fourth-inning three-run homer that capped the Angels’ comeback from a six-run deficit an inning earlier.Félix Peña, pitching after opener Cam Bedrosian’s scoreless first, gave up seven runs, admitting later that he “just didn’t really have any of my pitches.”The Angels’ hitters and relievers picked him up, though.Trout hit a two-run homer against Daniel Mengden in the third and then Ohtani blasted his three-run shot in the fourth against Yusmeiro Petit, putting the Angels up 8-7.Although it was a welcome problem to have for Manager Brad Ausmus, he then had to figure out how to protect the lead for 15 outs with a taxed bullpen.Bedrosian was already used and Luís García had pitched two days in a row, so he was available only in an emergency. Noé Ramírez had already gotten four outs in relief of Peña.Related Articles Ramírez gave the Angels one more inning, in the fifth, but that left Ty Buttrey, Hansel Robles, Justin Anderson and Cody Allen for the final four innings.Anderson pitched a perfect sixth, and then Ausmus tried to get two innings out of Buttrey. After using 20 pitches to get through the seventh, Buttrey gave up a run on a Matt Olson single in the eighth, on his 43rd pitch. It was 10 more pitches than he’d thrown in any big league game.The A’s then retook the lead when Robles bounced a pitch that got away from catcher Lucroy, whose dive back to the plate was a split-second too late to get Matt Chapman on a head-first slide.At that moment, it looked like the Angels’ comeback might have been wasted.But they had one comeback left.“Crazy game,” Trout said. “But we never gave up. We just got guys on base, just inched away. It was a big win.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Colts vs. Texans odds, prediction, betting trends for ‘Thursday Night Football’

first_imgFirst place in the AFC South will be on the line when the Colts (6-4) travel to play the Texans (6-4) on “Thursday Night Football” (8:20 p.m. ET, Fox, Amazon Prime Video, NFL Network). Indianapolis leads the division because of beating Houston at home earlier. Houston right now would make the playoffs as the AFC No. 6 seed.Should the Colts win, they would go from the No. 4 behind the Chiefs to No. 3. Should the Colts lose, they would drop to No. 7 behind the Raiders, to whom they lost. Should the Texans win, they would go from No. 6 to No. 3. Should the Texans lose, they would drop to No. 7, too, hoping the Raiders lose to the Jets on Sunday to get back to No. 6.Here’s everything to know about betting on Colts vs. Texans in Week 12, including updated odds, trends and our expert’s prediction for “Thursday Night Football.”MORE: Get the latest NFL odds & betting advice at Sportsbook ReviewColts vs. Texans odds for ‘Thursday Night Football’Spread: Texans by 3.5Point total: 45Odds: Colts -103, Texans -107The Texans are basically a little more than home-field favorites here after getting crushed on the road by the Ravens. The spread has gone up to 4 points in their favor for some sportsbooks. The Colts are coming off a convincing home win over the Jaguars.Colts vs. Texans all-time seriesThe Colts have dominated the series since it began in 2002 when the Texans entered the NFL, going 28-8. The Colts have won three straight and five of six, including the teams’ wild-card playoff meeting last January, 21-7. The Texans beat the Colts in overtime in Indianapolis last September.Three trends to know— 57 percent of spread bettors are going with the Texans. 57 percent of moneyline bettors are going with the Colts.— With Deshaun Watson and Jacoby Brissett as the quarterbacks, despite injury concerns on both offenses, 55 percent of bettors like the game to go over the point total.— The Texans are 2-5 against the Colts over the past three seasons. Only 3 of the past 8 games between the teams have gone over.Three things to watchWill Fuller return?The Texans need some wide receiver pop downfield to help DeAndre Hopkins and Watson. Will Fuller was close to coming back from his hamstring injury against the Ravens and is a game-time decision to see his first action since Week 7. Should he go, it would be a huge needed boost to Watson against the Colts’ secondary.No Mack — but likely yes HiltonThe Colts will be without Marlon Mack, who fractured his hand against the Jaguars. That means they turn to a committee of Jonathan Williams, Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines for the eary-down and receiving load. Williams was great against the Jaguars, but the Texans are a better run defense. But Colts wide reciever T.Y. HIlton, a noted Houston killer, looks like he’s returning from his calf injury. The Colts will need to throw more often and effectively with Brissett to win.Frank Reich vs. Bill O’BrienReich’s aggressive coaching staff has gotten the better of O’Brien’s early in their sideline rivalry. The Colts play a lot of close games are are good at winning battles of attrition, despite recent losses to the Dolphins and Steelers. O’Brien needs to have his team push the right buttons late to avoid a mild upset. Stat that mattersThe Texans are the No. 13 run defense in the NFL, allowing on average 102 yards per game, but they give up 4.7 yards per carry. The Colts rank No. 9, at 96.8 yards per game at 4.3 yards per carry. This game will likely be won through the air by either Watson or Brissett. The Colts are No. 11 there, while the the Texans are No. 29.Colts vs. Texans predictionWatson had a rough outing in Baltimore but will rebound at home to lift his team in a crucial game. The Colts’ offense is missing its top power back Mack, and although Brissett will grind and deliver some big pass plays to Hilton and others to keep the Colts in it, Watson will deliver the game-winning drive late.Texans 24, Colts 20last_img read more
