Within the framework of a Memorandum of Understanding, HydrogenPro will assist the Spanish multi-energy provider Repsol to mature and accelerate projects which will help Repsol achieve its’ target of becoming a zero emissions company by 2050. HydrogenPro will contribute technology and know how to build and deliver efficient high pressure alkaline electrolysers to produce green hydrogen which will contribute to the decarbonization of Repsol and to reaching its’ zero emission target.Based on an initial review of project opportunities, the parties have identified a possible project at the Bilbao based refinery Petroloes del Norte SA- a subsidiary of Repsol, and have entered into a Letter of Intent (LOI) to jointly develop this opportunity. As a first phase, the parties will cooperate closely in order to prepare and present an application for European Green Deal funding later this month. A key component of the project is to implement the latest electrolyser technology with improved efficiency to design an optimized 100MW plant. Any future project depends i.e on allocation of Green Deal funding, and at present, there are no assurances that such funding will be granted nor that Repsol will make a final decision to invest in an electrolyser plant in the future.Ariema will act as facilitator and assist and support HydrogenPro during the project phase and assuming the project is approved, will support and assist HydrogenPro in establishing a supply chain for electrolyser projects in Spain.Mårten Lunde, CEO of HydrogenPro explains that “we are honoured of being given the opportunity to team up with Repsol in maturing green hydrogen projects and thus the ability of contributing to Repsol achieving its’ net zero emission target by 2050 as the first company in this sector to set such an ambitious target.” Source: Company Press Release HydrogenPro will contribute technology and know how to build and deliver efficient high pressure alkaline electrolysers to produce green hydrogen which will contribute to the decarbonization of Repsol and to reaching its’ zero emission targetlast_img

Salsa hacked back on right foot

first_imgOxford’s Salsa Society has fought allegations of dissatisfaction with its President, while a hacker highjacked the society’s mailing list with members receiving a torrent of abusive emails. OUSS Committee members have rallied behind their President. Eva- Maria Dimitriadis said that accusations made by Suraya Jina, who recently resigned as Treasurer, that President Mark Vincon had ruined the Society by running it as a dictatorship were entirely false. Dimitritriadis in fact claimed that Jina had lost power after the committee was re-organised to make it more democratic. She said Vincon was popular within the society and had been an “excellent and extremely accommodating” President. But, in the fallout to the allegations, a hacker broke into the society’s mailing list and sent members a series of foul-mouthed messages under the President’s name warning them not to read the article in The OxStu in which the accusations were made. Responses to this resulted in members receiving almost 200 emails. After the society’s unsuccessful attempts to shut down the list, Oxford’s Computing Services had to withdraw it and are currently attempting to trace the computer from which the hacker operated. A new mailing list is being set-up and members have been sent a profuse apology.ARCHIVE: 5th week TT 2004last_img

Vice-Chancellor named next President of NYU

first_imgOutgoing Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University Professor Andrew Hamilton will replace John Sexton as the next President of New York University (NYU). He is expected to take up the position in January 2016.Andrew Hamilton became Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford in 2009, having previously served as Provost of Yale University.Prior to this appointment, Hamilton had several academic posts as a chemist, including at Princeton University. He has also held professorships at the Universities of Pittsburgh and Yale. In 2004, Professor Hamilton was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society.Hamilton’s time as Vice-Chancellor has not been without controversy. He has previously been criticised for his salary of £442,000, which is the third highest of any university boss in the country.In 2013, Hamilton also spoke out against the current tuition fee rules in the UK, suggesting that top universities should be able to charge more to reflect the difference in the quality of teaching between institutions. Hamilton noted at the time that it costs £16,000 a year to teach a student in Oxford.Speaking of his departure Hamilton said, “It is a huge privilege to serve this great university and will remain so for the rest of my time here. It is premature to talk of achievements and legacies – there is still much to be done on my watch – but I am delighted to have been part of a very exciting, dynamic and successful time in Oxford’s long and illustrious history.“It won’t be easy to leave Oxford. I have learnt a great deal, and I’m sure the insights and experience gained here will stand me in good stead in my new role in New York.”The committee in charge of nominating the next Vice-Chancellor is expected to put forward a name by early June.last_img

Speech: Lord Ahmad Speech at the Commonwealth Youth Roundtable Event

first_imgYour Royal Highness, distinguished guests and young leaders of the Commonwealth, it is an immense pleasure for me as Minister of State for the government, to welcome you here to Lancaster House and continue the conversation many of us started in April last year on the vision of CHOGM 2018, and most importantly the focus of the youth forum.I am particularly delighted that we are joined by His Royal Highness, The Duke of Sussex, who will speak in a moment about his work as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador.Your Royal Highness, may I say how delighted we are that the Duchess of Sussex has become patron of the Association of Commonwealth Universities and I know she will be an energetic and inspiring champion in every sense. There is a small event happening very shortly in your lives, but I’m sure, as The Duchess of Sussex said herself during the Commonwealth Summit, she’s very much looking forward to her role within the context of the Commonwealth family.Your Royal Highness, over the last 10 months, the UK as Chair-in-Office, has been working very closely with member states, the Commonwealth Secretariat and the Commonwealth’s many organisations and networks to ensure that we deliver, and act, on the outcomes and abitions of the Summit and Heads of Government meeting.We have already allocated over £500 million towards projects under the four themes of the summit, and we have already made good progress.We are building, firstly, a more secure future through programmes to strengthen countries’ cyber resilience. This is a particular priority for me personally as the government’s cyber minister. We are building a prosperous future by improving employment prospects for young people through investment in training and skills development programmes. And importantly we are also investing in a fairer future through supporting the provision of 12 years of quality education for girls and boys, with a commitment from the United Kingdom of over £200m of UK funding.However, there is also an important priority which I know is close to your heart, Sir, on the issue of a sustainable future. We, together with Vanuatu, are co-leading the Commonwealth Clean Oceans Alliance to tackle marine plastics, which now has 24 members of the Commonwealth, to many of whom we are giving technical and direct assistance. And we are also funding research to accelerate the development of new malaria treatments.The 1.4 billion young people of the Commonwealth will define the future. Indeed, you are already defining the present, as those of us in this room will testify. All of you are advocating for issues that matter to everyone; you are involved in delivering development programmes; you are creating businesses, you are creating wealth and employment; you are holding your governments to account, and most importantly your personal examples of the work you do is inspiring others across the globe.Direct engagement between governments and young leaders is not just a nice thing to do, it is the right thing to do, it is essential. We must have our young leaders working hand-in-glove with all the member states, the Secretariat, and the Commonwealth’s networks and organisations. Young people must not just be engaged, they must be directly involved and I assure you that as a minister responsible I pledge, together with our team here, to cotinue working directly with you, throughout our Chair-in-Office period and beyond, and that’s what brings us together here today.Before we kick of the discussions I would like to now invite His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex to speak to us about his role as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador. Your Royal Highness, we are again honoured you’ve joined us today, and it’s over to you.last_img

Break Science To Team Up With Members Of The Disco Biscuits For [Br]eaking [Bi]scuits Run

first_imgIn October of 2016, Brooklyn Comes Alive brought together dozens of artists to play in never-before-formed supergroups for one night only in NYC. It was there that one of the most talked-about collaborations was born: [Br]eaking [Bi]scuits with Break Science’s Adam Deitch and Borahm Lee and The Disco Biscuits’ Marc Brownstein and Aron Magner. The debut performance was easily one of the most talked about musical experiences that came out of the day, ultimately inspiring the artists to come back together for a slew of dates this spring.[Br]eaking [Bi]scuits will play three shows this spring, including stops at the Westcott Theater in Syracuse, NY on 5/18, the Brooklyn Bowl in NYC on 5/19, and Gypsy Sallys in Washington, DC on 5/20.Says Brownstein of the project, “Playing with Adam and Borahm is a dream come true. These are two of the best musicians in the entire live and electronic music scene, and they have pushed the envelope to evolve the way people perceive what is possible to accomplish musically.”Adds Deitch, “Marc and Aron went from playing the Wetlands in the 90s, to curating one of the biggest and coolest festivals in the world, Camp Bisco! They have always had one foot in the electronic sound, and one foot in the jam!”Merging together the worlds of electronic, hip-hop, psychedelic grooves and heavy jams,  [Br]eaking [Bi]scuits is certainly not to be missed!5/18- Syracuse, NY Westcott Theater (tickets)5/19- Brooklyn, NY Brooklyn Bowl (tickets)5/20 – Washington, DC – Gypsy Sallys (tickets)last_img

Radiohead Bust Out “Where I End And You Begin” For The First Time In 9 Years In Kansas City

first_imgRadiohead is four shows into their 2017 world tour, and they have been rotating their catalog to include rare material almost every night. In Miami, the band busted out “Morning Bell,” “I Might Be Wrong”, and “The Tourist,” and then played “House of Cards” for the first time since 2012 in Atlanta. While the band didn’t turn out any rarities in New Orleans (though the show was still incredible), the band continued debuting long-lost material last night in Kansas City, when they performed Hail To The Thief standout “Where I End And You Begin” for the first time since 2008. Of course, the band delivered another career-spanning setlist to put together a remarkable show, with “Where I End And You Begin” as the cherry on top of another magnificent show.Check out a video of the major bust-out below, courtesy of YouTube user Hoppípolla, as well as a full setlist from the performance in Kansas City.

Poll: Three in four adults played sports when they were younger, but only one in four still play

first_imgA new NPR/Robert Wood Johnson Foundation/Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health poll finds that although almost three in four adults played sports when they were younger (73%), only one in four (25%) continue to play sports as adults.But that decline in interest doesn’t stop parents from encouraging their children to make sports a part of their lives. In fact, almost nine in ten parents whose middle school or high school aged child plays sports (89%) say that their child benefits a great deal or quite a bit from participating in sports.And, while most adults no longer play sports themselves, the majority of parents (72%) whose child plays sports say it is very likely or somewhat likely that their child will continue participating in sports when he/she becomes an adult. One in four parents (26%) whose high school aged child plays sports also hope their child will become a professional athlete.When parents were asked about the benefits that their middle school or high school aged child gets from playing sports, more than eight in ten parents whose child plays sports say their child benefits a great deal or quite a bit in his/her physical health (88%) and helping him/her learn about discipline or dedication (81%).

Lewis Hall to host first-ever LHOB event

first_imgLewis House of Pancakes (LHOP) has been a popular tradition at Notre Dame for years. Continuing the tradition, the first-ever Lewis Hall of Baking, or LHOB, will commence Friday. Unlike its fall counterpart, which serves breakfast as the primary food, LHOB will instead offer a variety of baked goods. Featured options will include Rice Krispies Treats, ice cream floats, brownies, chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies and cinnamon rolls.“LHOB is a playoff of LHOP, which is a really popular breakfast food event and has been successful for many years,” sophomore and co-signature event commissioner Jasmine Mrozek said.Lewis president and junior Marissa Brennan said there will be a donut speed-eating competition at 10:30 p.m. during the event with representatives from each dorm. “We really wanted to do [the donut eating competition] as a way of getting participation from all the halls across campus,” Brennan said. Courtesy of Marissa Brennan Lewis Hall will extend their baking tradition to a new event this year, Lewis Hall of Baking, which will offer a variety of baked goods.Brennan also talked about the success of LHOP within Lewis. “[LHOP] is a great way to get everyone involved in our hall,” Brennan said. Lewis Hall’s previous spring signature event was Chicks for Charity, which consisted of making Easter baskets and sending monetary donations to St. Margaret’s House in South Bend, a local charity that provides supplies and support to impoverished women and children. “We saw that not a lot of people were involved with [Chicks for Charity],” Brennan said. “It was a pretty brief event and not a lot of people knew about it, so we wanted to change it up this year to get more people involved.” One of the primary motivations for the rebranding of the spring signature event was to reach the wider campus, expanding their efforts beyond the dorm, Mrozek said.“[Chicks for Charity] really had trouble getting other dorms involved,” she said. “It was really just Lewis girls participating. We [wondered what else] could draw campus involvement, so we thought something similar to LHOP, hence LHOB, [could do that].”LHOB will continue to support St. Margaret’s House. “Hopefully [LHOB] will raise more money than we have in the past,” Mrozek said. Lewis started advertising for the event on Facebook by encouraging people to guess what the “B” would stand for in LHOB. Some people guessed things like burgers while others correctly guessed baking, Mrozek said. “Especially because it is a new event, it was a way to draw attention to it,” she said. Mrozek said students who attend will enjoy great food, support Lewis in its new signature event and help give back to the community. “I think students should be confident in Lewis’s cooking abilities based off of LHOP, which is always a tremendous success,” she said. “We want to show students that we could do it again but with dessert food, but not only just to come to enjoy the great food that we will have but obviously the money is going towards a great cause.”Freshman Margaret Peterson, who helped with baking the cookies ahead of time, explained her experience with LHOB preceding the event Friday night. “I had a good time working with the other people working in [Lewis],” Peterson said. ”I think that the cookies are going to be really good, and we have a lot of other [baked goods] as well. Everybody likes the cinnamon rolls.”All-you-can-eat tickets for the event are $3 and can be purchased in both North and South Dining Halls the day of the event, as well as at the door. Domer Dollars and cash are accepted. “There will be music, lots of desserts, lots of fun and it’s only $3 for all you can eat,” Brennan said. Tags: lewis hall, Lewis House of Baking, LHOBlast_img
