AC/DC, Jack White, And Drake Will Headline Coachella 2015

first_imgMusicAC/DC, Jack White, And Drake Will Headline Coachella 2015Announced earlier today, the line up for the 2015 Coachella Music Festival features familiar faces and some we had forgotten aboutBy Theis Duelund – January 6, 2015620ShareEmailFacebookTwitterPinterestReddItIt’s a back-to-basics kind of year for the Coachella Music Festival, which kicks off April 10. Coachella just released the line-up for the two hottest weekends in Southern California. Where previous years have been heavily invested in booking electronic music and catering to the ever-growing EDM demographic, this year’s bill features more conventional guitar-driven rock ‘n’ roll than we’ve seen in years. Not only is Jack White–who produced the 2008 documentary It Might Get Loud, celebrating his guitar heroes The Edge from U2 and Jimmy Page–a headliner; Coachella will also fly in Australian hard rock legends AC/DC (although a somewhat dismantled AC/DC, which won’t include ailing guitarist Malcolm Young or drummer Phil Rudd, due to legal problems), Interpol, and Tame Impala.But White and AC/DC aren’t the only headliners to have classic rock fans high-fiving: Coachella will also feature a performance by none other than 70’s soft rockers Steely Dan. Steely Dan have broken up and reformed more times than anyone can remember at this point, but they are sure to deliver a nostalgic trip with classic swinging hits like “Do It Again,” “Reelin’ In The Years,” and “Rikki Don’t Lose That Number.”Despite being top-loaded with classic rock, the whole line-up is pretty diverse and interesting. Some of the smaller-font acts at Coachella include L.A.’s own Flying Lotus, Hozier, Lykke Li, Ghostface Killah, Azealia Banks, Father John Misty, War On Drugs, Run The Jewels, and St. Vincent. It will be hard to catch all of these, so this may be the year to go both weekends. Regardless, if someone asks you on camera at Coachella about a band you’ve never heard of before, don’t pretend that you know it; you wouldn’t want to end up like these people, who attended the festival last year and took a serious dent in the old hipster cred.

Santa rally continues as European markets rise

first_imgIs this a Christmas miracle, or merely a sign of a touch of festive merriment among investors? In looks like yesterday’s “Santa Rally” will continue into today, as European equities markets rose in morning trading. The FTSE 100 was up 0.7 per cent in mid-morning trading, while the Dax rose 0.3 per cent and France’s Cac 40 rose 0.2 per cent. They were continuing an example set overnight by Asian markets – the Japanese Nikkei closed 2.4 per cent up, while Hong Kong’s Hang Seng rose 1.25 per cent. A bit of festive cheer among markets isn’t unusual, but this year rises have been more welcome than usual, eating into recent losses. Yesterday, shares across Europe made their biggest one-day gain in three years, while the S&P made the biggest two-day jump since the end of 2011.The Dow also ended the day with a bit of festive sparkle, closing 2.43 per cent up.But analysts cautioned markets started the month from a low base. Connor Campbell, financials analyst at Spreadex, blamed a range of factors. If the thought of the Dow Jones not reaching 18000 was laughable a few weeks ago, then the thought of it hitting that peak this week was equally dubious following a dismal run of losses for the US index. Yet a bit of Christmas magic, following the display of faith by the US Fed, the stabilising rouble and Brent Crude, and the Swiss slash in interest rates has led to the Dow nearing its record highs of November and early December. Another rally this afternoon could see the US index pushing its 2014 resistance level. (Blue is FTSE 100, red is Dax, green is Cac 40) Share Emma Haslett More From Our Partners I blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org Show Comments ▼ Friday 19 December 2014 6:10 am whatsapp whatsapp Santa rally continues as European markets rise Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Sudden Trip Signals Unexpected Difficulties

first_img SHARE Sudden Trip Signals Unexpected Difficulties By Daily NK – 2010.08.26 2:58pm RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Analysis & Opinion Tracking the “unidentified yellow substance” being dried out near the Yongbyon Nuclear Center Analysis & Opinion It seems that Kim Jong Il headed for China at dawn today. The question is; why? Even though a former U.S. president, Jimmy Carter, is currently in Pyongyang securing the release of a U.S. citizen incarcerated there, Kim has apparently left the country. It is also Kim’s second trip to China in this year alone. This implies that whatever Kim Jong Il’s purpose is, it is urgent. Naturally, many people will wonder whether Kim Jong Eun is on the train to Beijing with his father, but it is as yet impossible to confirm or deny that. What is known is that North Korea is facing its first Workers’ Party Delegates’ Conference for 44 years, this one coming in early September; so many people will presume that the purpose of Kim’s visit is related to this issue. That is to say; before Kim Jong Eun officially becomes the successor by being appointed to the Standing Committee of the Politburo or some similar post at the Delegates’ Conference, Kim Jong Il may wish to positively influence the opinion of the Chinese leadership. Another suggestion is that, since the circumstances surrounding Kim Jong Eun’s public emergence are inauspicious in the aftermath of the currency redenomination, not to mention the damage caused by the latest flooding, Kim Jong Il wants to ask for large scale economic aid.Park Young Ho of Korea Institute for National Unification (KINU) believes that both positions may carry weight, saying to The Daily NK this lunchtime, “Especially facing the Delegates’ Conference of the Party, Kim may have headed for Beijing to negotiate the system of Kim Jong Eun’s succession with the Chinese leadership.” He explained further, “Since Chinese President Hu Jintao made mention of ‘reinforcement of strategic mediation regarding North Korea’s domestic and diplomatic affairs and international situation,’ this time Kim Jong Il may be planning advanced negotiations on the Kim Jong Eun issue.”One way or another, though, Park went on, “If Kim Jong Il really is visiting China, it hints that North Korea is now in quite a difficult situation.” On the other hand, some say that the possibility of Kim discussing domestic political issues with China is not that high at a time when former U.S. President Carter is in the middle of visiting the North and Chinese Deputy Foreign Minister Wu Dawei is in the South. An anonymous expert on China-North Korea relations agreed, noting, “There is no specific reason for the Chinese administration to beckon Kim Jong Il,” adding that, therefore, it is more likely to be “an individual matter rather than a political one.”“We cannot exclude the possibility of a sudden deterioration in Kim Jong Il’s health condition or the occurrence of a sudden political problem,” he went on.“If a health problem were the cause of Kim’s unexpected departure, he would be heading for the People’s Liberation Army Hospital or a special foreign hospital in Beijing where his security would be guaranteed,” the expert added.center_img Facebook Twitter AvatarDaily NKQuestions or comments about this article?

Science Plan to guide ACT’s environmental science

first_imgScience Plan to guide ACT’s environmental science Australian GreensThe ACT Government has today launched its Science Plan, which provides a five-year framework for scientific development, research and management into the Territory’s environment.The Science Plan will help guide the Government’s work across a full range of scientific areas in the Canberra region, including biosecurity, nature conservation, forest and rural land management, environmental protection, bushfire management, heritage and water.Minister for the Environment Rebecca Vassarotti said the Plan will help shape a future in which environment is conserved and enhanced for generations to come.“We are fortunate to live in Canberra, a place with so much ecological diversity and natural beauty,” Minister Vassarotti said. “We know that the wellbeing of our environment plays an important role in supporting our community’s health and wellbeing.“The environmental challenges we face are rapidly expanding: a growing population, urban expansion and intensification, water extraction, spread of invasive plants and animals, ecological fragmentation, bushfire and climate are all reducing the capacity of our ecosystem to deliver ecosystem services.“To solve these challenges, we need to listen to scientists and adopt an evidence-based approach. We need to protect our ecosystems and make sure they remain healthy and thriving. Healthy ecosystems not only lead to cleaner air and water, they provide habitats for our native flora and fauna, and more green spaces for the community.“The ACT Government is committed to creating a strong, evidence-based approach to research and decision making so we can so we can meet these challenges head on.”ACT Conservator for Flora and Fauna Ian Walker said the Science Plan lays the framework for conserving environment in a coordinated and collaborative way.“This plan is also a vision to empower citizen scientists, Universities, Ngunnawal Traditional Custodians, and other interested parties to join the ACT Government and undertake collaborative research to inform future decisions and care for Canberra’s environment,” Mr Walker said.The ACT Government will continue to collaborate with Australian National University, CSIRO and University of Canberra, along with many other knowledge providers including Ngunnawal Traditional Custodians. /Public Release.

In addition to custom designs, Amcor is announcing its collaboration with British multi award- winning start-up Garçon Wines to make their signature and more sustainable flat wine bottles available to the U.S. market. Amcor’s polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles and Garçon Wines’ flat wine bottles will be on display at booth A111.“We know today’s wine consumers are looking for a unique experience,” said Beth Rettig, vice president of spirits, wine and food, Amcor Rigid Packaging. “Amcor’s concepts are sleek, modern and perfectly matched to today’s lifestyle requirements for convenience and sustainability. PET bottles are unbreakable, beach- and pool-friendly, and the designs are only limited by the imagination. There are also environmental benefits: our bottles are lightweight, infinitely recyclable* and have a lower carbon footprint than glass bottles or aluminum cans.” Amcor and Garçon Wines will also be collaborating to produce the flat wine bottles made with post-consumer recycled (PCR) PET plastic in the U.S.A 2018 Dow Packaging Innovation Awards Diamond Finalist, Garçon Wines’ flat wine bottle has been generating significant interest in its home country of the UK, as well as in Europe, and is now set to come to the U.S. to continue its multinational expansion. A serious challenger to round glass bottles, the recycled PET flat bottle with granted patent and patents pending in the U.S. will become widely available in the U.S. in the second half of 2020. By innovating in shape and using best-in-class material, it becomes a game-changing, sustainable solution.“As we are facing a climate emergency and existential threat, we urgently need to be making step changes to products to slash their carbon footprint.

NSN becomes Nokia Solutions and Networks, considers job cuts

first_imgHome NSN becomes Nokia Solutions and Networks, considers job cuts Tim Ferguson Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) will now be known as Nokia Solutions and Networks, following completion of Nokia’s €1.7 billion acquisition of Siemens’ 50 per cent stake in the joint venture company — while rumours surfaced of potential job losses.The Siemens name will be phased out from the network vendor’s name and branding but the company will continue to be referred to as NSN for financial reporting purposes.The company reaffirmed its focus on mobile broadband, and emphasised that the ownership change brings “further stability, clarity and confidence in the future”.“While our name and brand have changed, I would like to emphasise that our overall strategy and our focus on mobile broadband remain the same,” said Rajeev Suri, who continues as NSN’s CEO.Nokia also stated its plan to “continue to strengthen the company as a more independent entity”.However, Bloomberg reports that the company is considering a reduction of 8,500 jobs to boost profitability and offset declining sales.Sources said the potential job cuts would bring NSN’s total workforce down to 42,000 by the end of 2014, a 17 per cent reduction. The cuts would be achieved by closing plants and outsourcing manufacturing.NSN has turned itself around since around late 2011 when it announced a major restructure involving the loss of 17,000 jobs and cost reductions of €1 billion by the end of 2013. It shifted its focus to mobile broadband in early 2012.With an adjusted operating profit of €822 million (from net sales of €13.7 billion) during 2012, NSN was the most profitable part of Nokia’s business.However, net sales for the second quarter of 2013 fell by 17 per cent year-on-year to €2.78 billion. This was attributed to the sale of businesses “not consistent with NSN’s strategic focus”, the exiting of certain customer contracts and reduced wireless infrastructure deployment activity.

US judge blocks man from selling Grand Theft Auto Online cheat programs

first_imgUS judge blocks man from selling Grand Theft Auto Online cheat programsTake-Two claims software by David Zipperer has cost the firm more than $500,000James BatchelorEditor-in-ChiefFriday 17th August 2018Share this article Recommend Tweet ShareCompanies in this articleTake 2 InteractiveThe publisher behind Grand Theft Auto has won a US court case that will prevent players from cheating in its online game.The case centres around Georgia resident David Zipperer, who has been accused of selling software that enables GTA Online users to alter the game or manipulate its mechanics to give them an edge over other players, Reuters reports.Take-Two claims that not only has this enabled ‘griefing’ of its online community, it has also cost at least $500,000, according to a complaint filed back in March.Yesterday, US District Judge Louis Stanton of Manhattan awarded the publisher a preliminary injunction that prevents Zipperer from selling his software. In the ruling, he said Take-Two was likely to prove that Zipperer had infringed its copyright and that his programs cause irreparable harm to the game’s sales by discouraging consumers from buying it.Related JobsSenior Game Designer – UE4 – AAA United Kingdom Amiqus GamesProgrammer – REMOTE – work with industry veterans! North West Amiqus GamesJunior Video Editor – GLOBAL publisher United Kingdom Amiqus GamesDiscover more jobs in games While not the harshest punishment, Stanton believed an injunction was appropriate due to the “high risk” that Zipperer could not afford damages, given that he claims to be unemployed. He also dismissed an unfair competition claim against Zipperer.In a statement, Take-Two said it would continue to pursue legal action to prevent “disruptions” to the GTA Online community.Despite being five years old, Grand Theft Auto Online continues to perform well. In Take-Two’s most recent financials, the publisher reported the game has surpassed expectations for its most recent quarter, although CEO Strauss Zelnick told GamesIndustry.biz he expects this to “moderate this fiscal year.”Celebrating employer excellence in the video games industry8th July 2021Submit your company Sign up for The Publishing & Retail newsletter and get the best of GamesIndustry.biz in your inbox.

First Solar Q4 earnings more than double, ahead of red ink in Q1

first_imgFirst Solar Q4 earnings more than double, ahead of red ink in Q1Thanks to the completion of several large-scale projects at the end of last year, leading thin-film module maker First Solar saw fourth-quarter earnings more than double to $1.89 per share compared with the third quarter on 13% higher net sales totaling just over $1 billion. February 25, 2015 Garrett Hering Finance Legal Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share The Arizona-based company on Tuesday posted earnings per share of $3.91 in 2014 on $3.4 billion in sales, compared to $3.70 per share on approximately $3.3 billion in net sales in 2013. First Solar shipped 1.5 GW of its cadmium-telluride-based thin-film panels in 2014 and booked 2.5 GW of supply deals for third-party and self-developed projects. “We closed 2014 with strong execution across all fronts,” said Jim Hughes, chief executive of First Solar, in a statement. “We have exceeded the earnings per share, operating cash flow and bookings targets that we set at our 2014 Analyst Day. In addition we have announced another new record cell efficiency. With our strong bookings we are well positioned as we enter 2015 and remain focused on executing to our strategy.” First Solar boosted the average sunlight-conversion efficiency of its panels by 100 basis points to 14.4% in the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to the prior-year fourth quarter. Its best lines, which operated at 14.8% in the fourth quarter, already are at 15.8% this month, said Hughes during a conference call with analysts. The company forecast sales of $550 to $650 million in this year’s first quarter and a loss of $0.35 to $0.35 per share. First Solar attributed the declines to the late 2014 completions of the 550 MW Desert Sunlight and Topaz projects in California, which currently are the world’s largest operating solar power plants, as well as “the retention of projects on balance sheet in relation to the announced plan to pursue a joint yieldco vehicle with SunPower.” First Solar declined to provide full-year financial guidance, pending full disclosure of the details of the joint venture.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.

Soventix begins work on the first 30 MW phase of a PV project in the Dominican Republic

first_imgSoventix begins work on the first 30 MW phase of a PV project in the Dominican RepublicThis will be by far the largest solar project in the island nation, which remains dependent upon imported oil and gas. September 3, 2015 Blanca Díaz López Installations Markets Markets & Policy Share On Wednesday the government of the Dominican Republic celebrated the beginning of work on a 30 MW solar project by Germany’s Soventix in the province of Monte Plata. The full project will consist of two stages, each 30 MW.Soventix plans to put this first 30 MW stage into operation in February 2016. The project consists of 120,000 PV modules and 1000 inverters, each 30 kW in capacity.The project will allow savings of an estimated US$250 million in imported fossil fuels. Like many island nations, electricity generation in the Dominican Republic is highly dependent upon imported oil and gas, which results in high and unpredictable prices.The governments of Taiwan and The Netherlands provided assistance for the project, and a ceremony for the beginning of work was attended by Dutch and Tiawanese ambassadors. This ceremony was led by Dominican Vice-Minister of Energy Ernesto Vilalta.To date few megawatt-scale solar projects have been built in the Dominican Republic. Among the larger projects in the nation are a 1.5 MW project in the El Ciabao Airport and a 1.5 MW project which provides electricity to cement maker Cemex.However, other island nations in the Caribbean have been rapidly adopting solar PV. According to the latest report by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), Guadeloupe, Martinique and Puerto Rico had each installed at least 60 MW of solar PV by the end of 2014.Translation and additional reporting by Christian RoselundThis content is protected by copyright and may not be reused.
