The Danish government has opened the first round of applications for the Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Program (EUDP) in support of the development of new green energy technology in 2018.The first round of applications for the EUDP fund includes up to DKK 230 million (around EUR 31 million) offered across all technologies relevant to the green energy conversion, with the deadline for applications 2 March.The Danish Minister of Energy, Utilities and Climate, Lars Chr. Lilleholt, said that he hopes there will be a lot of applications because EUDP-supported projects help increase exports of energy technology and create growth and employment.“Denmark has joined the international cooperation Mission Innovation, whose task is to strengthen international cooperation on new energy research. The EUDP plays a major role in the government’s efforts to double energy research funds by 2020,” said Lilleholt.According to Lilleholt, although Danish companies are competent in seizing opportunities for the development of renewable energy as part of the green transformation, many ideas and technologies need help with launching. Thus, the funds from the EUDP program are an important investment both in climate and in jobs, the minister said.The second and final round of the program this year is expected to open in September. In 2018, the program will award DKK 400 million, while the amount is expected to increase to at least DKK 500 million by 2020.
Sharing is caring! 20 Views no discussions NewsRegional Political infighting goes public in Turks and Caicos by: – March 8, 2012 Share Tweet PROVIDENCIALES, Turks and Caicos Islands — A previous contender for the leadership of the Progressive National Party (PNP) in the Turks and Caicos Islands, attorney Carlos Simons QC, has gone public with a call for reconsideration of the current leadership of the party, which is in the hands of Clayton Greene, also a local attorney and former Speaker of the House.(L-R) Carlos Simons, Clayton Greene and Royal Robinson“It has been one month now since the leader of our party has been charged with a serious criminal offence. He protests his innocence. He promised after he was first arrested and released on police bail that he would ‘consider’ the issue of resignation,” Simons said in an open letter to party leaders.He went on to criticise Greene for not holding a meeting of the party’s National Executive Council (NEC) or the National Governing Council (NGC) to consider the party’s situation. He also complains that the party is without a deputy leader after Greene’s choice of Albray Butterfield Jr was unacceptable to the NGC and was set aside over one year ago.Simons addressed these issues, saying: “Calling a spade a spade, the leader’s behaviour is outrageous and contravenes every accepted norm of proper conduct in public office. Just as the charge against him has been made publicly, he must now publicly offer his resignation and leave it to the party to decide whether or not to ask him to stay on until a new leader can be elected in an orderly way. The matter might be different had there been a deputy leader, but thanks to the leader, and contrary to the constitution of our party, there is no deputy!”Shortly after Simons’ letter was released to the media, former PNP minister and deputy premier, Royal Robinson, responded complaining that Simons had no business making his views about the leader’s failings public. However, Robinson also released his response to the media. Robinson was apparently angry about the situation and promised he would use stronger language when he and Simons were in personal contact.Not to be left out of the fray was the leader himself, Clayton Greene, who also went public with his response. It appears that at some unannounced point Greene plans to call a party meeting and have these issues aired.Greene did mention that the internal strife was affecting the party’s “moral high ground” as they relate to the British direct rule government. Currently, however, some 12 former PNP ministers and their close relatives have been arrested and are due in court next month to face various charges relating to alleged corruption, bribery and money laundering. Yet to be interviewed or charged is the former party leader and premier, Michael Misick, who is reported to be in self imposed exile in the Dominican Republic, apparently hoping to avoid extradition to the Turks and Caicos Islands. Greene received the backing of Misick when none of the contenders for party leader, including Misick and Simons, could not achieve majority support at the August 2010 PNP convention.

CAAP-Iloilo’s terminal supervisor Art Parreño said the Iloilo Airport has prepared for the resumption of commercial flights. It now has physical distancing markers and has designated hand-washing and decontamination areas. When would these inbound flights resume? ILOILO – The Iloilo Airport in Cabatuan town is set to accept inbound commercial flights from Metro Manila. “Passengers would be able to buy airline tickets and go to the airport,” said Defensor. Defensor said air passengers must have “complete documents” including a travel authority from the Philippine National Police and certification that they were able to complete 14 days of quarantine and didn’t have symptoms of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) such as fever and cough, among others. Defensor said he would first issue an executive order either before this week is over or early next week. This number of passengers would be equally divided among the three airlines. For the time being, however, airlines would only be flying returning overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and locally stranded individuals (LSIs) “because we are still under a modified general community quarantine and we have border restrictions,” said Gov. Arthur Defensor Jr. Defensor agreed to set the cap – 1,500 – on the number of weekly air passengers to avoid overwhelming the quarantine facilities of local government units.Also, so that the receiving local government units could prepare, the governor required the airlines to provide the provincial government with passenger manifestos two days before their flights. The initial outbound flights approved were those of the Philippine Airlines. Each airline could have twice-a- week flights to the Iloilo Airport, according to CAAP Iloilo chief Manuela Luisa Palma. Commercial flights to and from Iloilo were suspended in March this year when the community quarantine was enforced to curb the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Classified as an international airport, the Iloilo Airport is the first airport in both Western Visayas and the island of Panay to be built to international standards. It is also considered to be the primary gateway into the region. The governor said he would be allowing more outbound flights should other airlines offer them but only for locally stranded individuals, overseas workers and those who work in Metro Manila. Iloilo province and the rest of Western Visayas remain under a modified general community quarantine until the end of this month unless extended further or lifted earlier. Just this June 16, Defensor approved outbound flights to Manila from the Iloilo Airport but only for locally stranded individuals, employees who have work in Metro Manila and overseas workers who have scheduled flights back to their employment abroad. Also, as agreed during Defensor’s meeting yesterday afternoon with officials of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) and executives of Air Asia, Cebu Pacific and Philippine Airlines at the provincial capitol, only 1,500 OFWs and LSIs would be allowed to return to Iloilo every week. The executive order may also include requirements that can be demanded from passengers before they can be issued plane tickets, added the governor. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the Iloilo Airport served around 25 arrival and departure flights daily. Thermal scanners at the arrival and departure areas would check people’s temperatures (fever being one of the symptoms of COVID-19)./PN

Pakistan was eliminated in the league stages of World Cup.India lost to New Zealand in the semi-final of the World Cup.England won the ICC Cricket World Cup for the first time. New Delhi: Basit Ali, the former Pakistan cricket team batsman, had raked up a massive controversy when he made comments on India wanting to knock Pakistan out of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 deliberately. Following his comments, the Pakistan Cricket Board has apparently initiated action against the former player for his comments. In a report on Mumbai Mirror, the PCB chairman Ehsan Mani said the board had voiced their displeasure over the comments. “We have communicated to him our displeasure about his unsubstantiated comments during the World Cup. He is not an employee of the PCB but we have made our point clear,” Mani said. In response, Ali responded, “I have not received any letter from the PCB. Everyone has seen how India played against England. Sourav Ganguly, Nasser Hussain and Waqar Younis have also made remarks on the way India played. When Basit Ali makes such remarks, no one seems to notice,” Ali said. Before the final week of league games begin, speaking to ARY News, Ali had alleged that India will lose deliberately to Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in order to knock Pakistan out of the tournament. “India would never want Pakistan to qualify for the semi-final. India’s remaining matches are against Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, and everyone saw the way they played against Afghanistan. People don’t say that they will lose intentionally but India will play in such a way that people won’t be able to make any remarks. When playing Australia, David Warner didn’t play at all. Cricket is not a game of chance. In 1992, New Zealand purposely lost to Pakistan (in the league stage) and Imran Khan would agree with that. The Kiwis lost so they could play the semi-final in their own country,” Ali said.India had won six consecutive games while England had stumbled in the middle of the league stages. However, in the crunch game between England and India at Edgbaston, England made 338 but India lost by 31 runs. Virat Kohli’s side bounced back with wins over Bangladesh and Sri Lanka as they topped the group. India’s win, though, had put Pakistan and Sri Lanka on the brink of elimination. Pakistan had won only one out of their six games but they ended the tournament in style with wins over New Zealand, Afghanistan and Bangladesh but they were knocked out as New Zealand ended with a superior net run-rate.

After playing with several of the world’s best soccer players, Johnson (17), a senior defender/midfielder, has collected four assists this year but is still without a score of her own.[/media-credit]After living in Wisconsin for her whole life, senior defender/midfielder and Wisconsin women’s soccer team captain Lindsey Johnson left her comfort zone and spent her summer in one of the most bustling cities in the United States: Seattle.It’s one thing to go from Sussex, Wis., with a population just over 10,000 people to Seattle with a population 62 times larger than that in the city. But to play soccer on the same team as Hope Solo, Megan Rapinoe and Alex Morgan – some of the best soccer players in the world – is an experience most could only dream of. Johnson lived that dream this summer.She had just finished her third year at Wisconsin and was a defensive staple for the Badgers’ women’s soccer team, starting in all 20 matches and named to the second team all-Big Ten.Johnson then set her sights on the summer. She was planning to play soccer, but not sure where, and thanks to Wisconsin head coach Paula Wilkins, who encouraged Johnson, she took a chance and played in Seattle.“I was thinking of playing somewhere else in the summer,” Johnson said. “I didn’t really know where I was going to go, but then Paula kind of pushed me to [go to Seattle]. She put the idea in my head, and I thought about it, and then I just went for it.”So Wilkins put in a good word with head coach Michelle French and with that Johnson was on her way to play for the Seattle Sounders of the USL W-League.Johnson remembers what it was like when she first landed in Seattle.“When I first arrived, I was probably the most nervous I have ever been in my entire life,” Johnson said. “A guy that worked for the team picked me up at the airport. I was pretty much on the verge of freaking out right after I got on the plane, but as soon as I met him and met my host family and my team, the nerves went away pretty quickly.”Johnson noticed professionalism was the biggest difference between her W-League team and college team. She said the practices weren’t too different from college, but noted the intensity of the games was above and beyond anything she had ever known.She recalled an event in particular that set the tone for the rest of the summer.“In my very first game, I remember there was a ball going out on the end-line for a corner for the other team, and there was no way I could have gotten to it to save the corner. So naturally I didn’t go for it. But I was screamed at because I didn’t attempt to save it – and that’s the moment I knew that this was going to be a completely different experience than I have ever before experienced.”Johnson went on to play in eight of the team’s 15 games, tallying 378 minutes and a shot during the season. The Sounders ended the season with a record of 10-4-1.The senior captain said playing in the W-League presented challenges she had never experienced before.“It was definitely a different experience,” Johnson said. “First of all, in Seattle, the fans are outrageous. There were 4,500 people at every game… and that was ridiculous. I’ve never been in an environment like that.“The pace and everything is higher. It’s just a different experience and playing with girls that have been in such a high [level of] environment – it makes me look forward to what I can do in the future.”While in Seattle, Johnson had the opportunity to play with Solo, Morgan and Rapinoe because the U.S. professional women’s soccer league was suspended due to a financial dispute.Johnson made relationships with some of the players there, hanging out with the team through various team-bonding exercises that included a team get together at Solo’s house for the Fourth of July.Reflecting on the experience, she said just being able to be in a different city and playing alongside some of the best players in the world was an experience she will never forget.“I’ve never been on my own like that in my entire life,” Johnson said. “It was really different living with a family that wasn’t my own, and then I had to play with players I wasn’t used to and be on a team that I wasn’t used to and coaches that I wasn’t used to. Then [to] play with players of that caliber was just outrageous.”Senior midfielder Monica Lam-Feist, who is close with Johnson, says she can tell that her teammate’s time in Seattle was beneficial for her.“I’m pretty close with LJ so I know that she has never really been outside her comfort zone before,” Lam-Feist said. “She’s never really played outside of Wisconsin so going to Seattle for a summer was a good experience for her. I definitely saw a side to her come out of her shell a bit. It was nice to see.”This season, Johnson has started all 12 of UW’s games and is tied for the team lead in assists with four.Wilkins says she can tell some good habits have rubbed off on Johnson after playing with such talented players over the summer.“I think when you see how professional some people can be, I think that you can learn from that,” Wilkins said. “It’s pretty amazing to be in that culture. Obviously playing with the Alex Morgans and the Hope Solos of the world you see what they do day-in and day-out to become a better player, and I think that’s something that will be a great experience for her.”Follow Spencer on Twitter
