Fitch sees renewables becoming Western Europe’s top power source by 2023 FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Recharge:Western Europe will spearhead the transition to non-hydropower renewables, which will become the region’s predominant power source by 2023, Fitch Solutions said in an update to its 10-year global renewable energy outlook.“We expect the region’s total non-hydropower renewables capacity will grow by more than 330GW between 2020 and 2029 to reach nearly 1TW of capacity, almost equivalent to the total thermal capacity expected in 2029,” the analysts said.Non-hydro renewables according to Fitch Solution’s estimate are slated to make up 31% of total generation in Western Europe.The analysts said the detrimental impact of the Covid-19 pandemic in the short term will disrupt non-hydro renewables growth. But an expected recovery after this year actually presents greater opportunities for investment in solar and wind power as their lower costs and more rapid deployment characteristics will prove attractive to both private investors and governments seeking to maintain power sector growth over the medium term.On a global scale, the renewables sector will expand from over 1.3TW by the end of 2019 to more than 2.6TW ten years later, when 18% of the world’s generation are expected to come from renewable sources. That growth will be mainly driven by China, which is seen making up 42% of global non-hydro renewables additions in the ten-year period.[Bernd Radowitz]More: Renewables to become Western Europe’s main power source by 2023: Fitch Solutions
Watford captain, Troy Deeney has outlined the recipe which Nigerian striker, Isaac Success must employ if he is to attain admirable heights in English football.Success has impressed with his pace, power and end-product since his €15 million switch from Spanish club, Granada.He netted his only Premier League goal till date in spectacular fashion against AFC Bournemouth earlier this month but Deeney believes there is still more in the locker room of the Super Eagles man. “Everyone forgets he’s just a young man. He’s built like a big man but he’s definitely a young man.“He’s got a lot to learn, a lot to offer,” he told www.wdsport.co.uk.Success recently spoke highly of Deeney and compatriot, Ighalo, explaining that he learns a lot from the accomplished duo.Denney corroborated his young teammate’s submission and predicts a big future for him.“As the captain, you just try and guide him. We see the talent he possesses and the pace, we’ve just got to put the ball in the right areas for him and he can cause havoc.“I’m happy for him and now it’s his job to keep in the team. It’s the hardest thing to do: to stay in the team,” he said.It is not only teammates who have been left impressed by Success’ qualities as former Premier League stars now working as pundits have also taken the time to salute his qualities.Matt Le Tissier and Jamie Redknapp both believe Success can go on to achieve big things in the English game if he keeps his feet firmly on the ground.“Each time you see him you go, ‘Oh, hang on a minute. This boy has got something,’” said Matt Le Tissier on Sky Sports.“He looks sharp and deserves his start (against Middlesborough on October 16) as Ighalo has been struggling for quite some time now,” Le Tissier said.Pundits rarely appraise Watford without talking about Deeney and Ighalo.They now have another centre-forward to throw into the mix.“Deeney will enjoy having someone like Success running off him.“He’s got real pace; he’s an exciting talent. He can travel with the ball and gets you up the pitch.“They were so reliant on Deeney and Ighalo last year – this guy gives them a different option. You can hit teams on the counter with him in the side,” Redknapp said.Success started his first league game for Watford on Sunday and was rewarded with the man-of-the-match award for his troubles.His performance was however by no means perfect according to the Watford manager, Walter Mazzarri.“He did much better in the other games when he came on from the bench.“It’s not easy to start a game. It’s completely different but if he gets his full condition then he also needs to learn some things and he will be a great player,” Mazzarri said.The 20-year-old Nigerian forward had one attempt on target, won 60 per cent of his 15 duels, attempted four dribbles and gained possession for his side six times in the 1-0 win against Boro at the Riverside.He was therefore understandably delighted with his display at the Riverside Stadium, especially at the chance to make his first start in the colours of the Hornets.“I’m happy to get my first 90 minutes with the team, we won the game so it’s a good start for me,” said Success.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
Barring any last minute hitches Chelsea’s meeting with Crystal Palace presents the perfect opportunity for Black Stars Defender Baba Rahman to make his EPL debut, but if he does not how revealing will that be?Chelsea are without trusted Centre Back John Terry (red card), and first choice Keeper Thibaut Coutois leaving Mourinho with fewer options than to leave Rahman out of his first 11.If Mourinho turns up without Rahman it will mean a make shift defence that accommodates Kurt Zouma at centre back, right full back or left full back.The easiest way out is to have Rahman walk to left back with Ivanovic and Cahill at centre back and Azpilicueta at his usual right back.But if this doesn’t happen, then what could Mourinho be thinking?That was explored on this week’s edition of touchline and oh there’s a Big Surprise !!!

Babbling Babies a multi-lingual nursery rhyme and action songbook was launched in the Twin Towns Library, Stranorlar on Friday last.This collection of traditional nursery rhymes has been developed by Lifestart Services, with the support of Donegal Library Service, the County Childcare Committee and HSE Health Promotion and Improvement Service.An enthusiastic audience of adults and young children attended the launch which was held during Wainfest the Library Service’s annual Arts & Book Festival in October promoting love of books and reading in children. Early Years practitioners, teachers and Language Therapists have expressed concern about young children’s lack of fluency in their speech and reduced vocabulary.Child development experts have noted the fact that very many young children can no longer recite traditional nursery rhymes.Yet the research tells us that if children know eight nursery rhymes by heart by the time they are four years old, they are usually among the best readers in their class at age eight.The aim of the booklet is to stimulate language development and promote the importance of reading to children. Rhymes and songs in English, Irish, Polish, Romanian, Hindi and Kiswahili (Kenya) are included. This is the second edition of the booklet and Arabic and Chinese rhymes been added.Speaking at the launch Mary Walker Callaghan, Manager Lifestart Services, highlighted the benefits for children when parents read to them.These include developing their understanding of how language works, strengthening the relationship between the parent and child and developing a love of books.Maureen Kerr, Donegal Library Services said: “I am delighted to launch this second edition of Babbling Babies. The first book proved so popular that had it not been given free, it would have topped the bestseller list for several months following publication.“The book is important for many reasons. It helps children develop language skills. When parents read to and teach rhymes to their children it enhances the bond between the child and parent. The book in sharing nursery rhymes from around the world and honouring other languages helps promote inclusion.“I thank all the Council’s partner organisations for their hard work on bringing this lovely booklet to completion. I know it will be enjoyed by families throughout Donegal in the weeks and months to come.”Babbling Babies is part of a series of actions designed to improve children’s educational outcomes. The Library, Lifestart, County Childcare Committee and Health Promotion partnership is a Working Group of the Donegal Children & Young People’s Services Committee (CYPSC).To date, they have introduced the Bookworm Babies library card for children 0 -3 years. This year the Word Monsters library card has been introduced for children 4 – 6 years. The Lifelong Readers workshops have been rolled out for Early Years Practitioners and Parent & Toddler groups. Future plans include Ag Léamh le Chéile workshops in primary schools and the introduction of the Ready Readers library card.Our communities in Donegal are very fortunate to have a high-quality library service with a staff of committed librarians who are always ready to welcome parents and children, teachers and classes to the libraries.In addition to Wainfest, activities for children are held regularly throughout the year – and best of all the library service is free!So do go along to your local library and pick up a copy of Babbling Babies for your favourite small people. Check out the books for big people too!There is a book there for everyone -from the latest books on the best-seller lists to the Healthy Ireland section where you will find advice and guidance on themes including Eat Well / Think Well / Be Well.As Albert Einstein said – “The only thing that you have to absolutely know is the location of the library.”Donegal parent group launch first nursery rhyme book in Stranorlar – Pic Special was last modified: October 16th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

Today we get our first sneak peek in one minute scene of Kutcher and Josh Gads, who plays a beatnik-geek version of Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, discussing the potential for the first personal computer.“Nobody wants to buy a computer, nobody,” Wozniak says.“How does somebody know what they want if they have never even seen it,” Jobs says.Wozniak’s line is akin to the sentiment expressed by IBM CEO Thomas Watson at the time who imfamously said, “I think there is a world market for maybe five computers.” History would, epically, prove Watson wrong.

Right now there are some interesting discussions about: What to do during slow times, How to go about creating specific looks, How to calibrate a Eizo ColorEdge monitor and what the mathematically correct way to create a 3-strip look might be, to name but a few.Over on the DIT side of things DIT User is a brand new forum (currently in Open Beta) that will undoubtably gather momentum in the coming months.

In a recent discussion about how to film a dinner scene someone who describes themselves as: “having ‘no experience as a cinematographer (and can’t afford a ‘real’ one)” gets this free sage advice from Roger himself.You could buy a couple of single tube fixtures from ‘Home Depot’ to use as light sources for your close shots. The existing light might be a little harsh on the eyes. Buy some tracing paper to soften the light and make sure you buy the same fluorescent tubes that exist on your location so that you don’t have any colour matching problem. My gaffer carries a few Kinos but he will also buy regular tube fixtures from the hardware store so that there won’t be a colour shift between what we add and what exists on a location. Kinos won’t match the tubes that exist at your location unless you add gel to the Kino or change all the tubes on the location.Where else can you get that kind of access and willingness to share with absolute beginners?
