first_imgShane Wallace of Wallace Media interviewing Minister Richard Bruton at the Station House Hotel this morningMore than 60 new high-end jobs will be created at Letterkenny’s new €4.5M Science Park at the Letterkenny Institute of Technology.The LYIT campus where the new Science Park will be based.Details of the investment were announced this morning by Minister for Enterprise, Jobs and Innovation, Richard Bruton, who is visiting the county.Minister Bruton is in Letterkenny today to launch the Action Plan for Jobs Business Forum from 8am this morning. Commenting on today’s job announcement, Deputy Joe McHugh TD, “I am delighted at today’s announcement that there will be 60 new jobs being created at the Science Park building. This Government made a commitment to invest in this North West cross-border project between Letterkenny and Derry and today’s job announcement, along with the original €4.5m commitment is a further demonstration of that commitment.“I am also very pleased that Minister Bruton can be with us in Letterkenny today for this announcement, and also to promote the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs Business Forum. Since 2011, there have been an additional 600 IDA – supported jobs created in Donegal and it is essential that we keep building on this momentum because unemployment is so prominent in the County.“I also welcome that site works have commenced on a 2,197 m2 ‘Advanced Office Building’ in Letterkenny Business Technology Park, to meet demands of new and existing FDI developments both in Letterkenny and the North West Region.”Minister Bruton said a key part of the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs is supporting job-creation across all the regions of the country. “The border region was particularly badly hit by the employment collapse 2008-2010 with over 30,000 jobs lost, and in Donegal particularly more than 10,000 extra people joined the live register. In the past three years we have started to see some progress, with 2,000 people leaving the live register and 500 additional people employed in IDA companies in the county. Across the border region an extra 14,000 jobs have been created in the past year.“However we must do more, and that is why in the 2014 Action Plan we are putting in place measures like establishing Local Enterprise Offices in every country, advance IDA facilities in places like Letterkenny, and a competition to find the best young entrepreneur in every county.“Today’s announcement that, with support from my Department and the EU, a state of the art new 20,000 sq ft Science Park will be built at LYIT is a great lift. I am convinced that this will prove a huge boost for research and innovation in the border region and ultimately help turn good ideas into good jobs”. MORE THAN 60 NEW JOBS ANNOUNCED FOR LETTERKENNY SCIENCE PARK was last modified: May 1st, 2014 by StephenShare 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) Tags:donegalLetterkenny Science ParkMinister Richard Brutonlast_img read more

So how do they make sure Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson get their touches without making the other two feel jealous?Quite well, actually.

Did Klay Thompson reveal solution to his offensive struggles?

first_imgAfter watching Klay Thompson light up the Knicks for 43 points Tuesday night, maybe it’s time for Steve Kerr and his staff to deliver a pointed message to the Warriors star: Don’t dribble the ball.We were reminded what a devastating weapon Thompson can be when his offensive game just consists of moving, catching the ball and shooting it. He dribbled the ball just four times while making 18 of his 29 shots in the Warriors’ 122-95 win over the Knicks.That’s not a typo. Four. Dribbles.Can’t …last_img read more

Tesla Powerwall is now available in South Africa

first_imgElon Musk’s Tesla Motors will open a South African office this month, which will be managed by Evan Rice, the chief executive of GreenCape, an organisation formed to help develop the market for renewable energy in Western Cape.(Image: Tesla Powerwall)Brand South Africa reporterThe South African Tesla operation will start off with only one employee. But Rice told the htxt website that “if we can find some solid business cases and get them going, we will be expanding”, hinting at further announcements for the company’s presence in South Africa and the rest of the continent later in 2016.Rice says the company’s priority in South Africa will be to develop a market for Tesla’s industrial-scale battery pack, called the Powerwall. It was introduced to the world in 2015 by Musk. At the launch, Musk called the revolutionary device “the most suitable and cost-effective way to manage energy grids and supplement renewable energy sources for both industrial and home markets”.The Tesla Powerwall is a home battery system charged with solar energy that can provide power after sunset. The system can be plugged into the power grid, connected to buildings or paired with solar panels. Utilities can use them to operate their grids more smoothly and avoid having to build more expensive power plants that create pollution.Powerwall batteries are currently manufactured in Nevada, in the US. Tesla already has distribution deals in place to sell Powerwall products in South Africa through several renewable energy companies, including Dako Power and Rubicon, according to Rice.Rice also says the company, together with GreenCape, has spoken to municipal energy providers about feed-in tariffs which would allow customers to sell energy back to the grid. This would help to encourage private capital to invest in the systems, he says.“At the moment, we’re seeing the majority of solar going into shopping malls or retail parks where all the energy produced can be used on site,” Rice explains. “If you could sell some back to the grid it would make (investing in storage) a much more attractive business case and help to leverage private capital.”While Tesla has no plans to bring the group’s electric vehicles here, the anticipated success of the Powerwall home battery system in South Africa – which is no stranger to electricity constraints – might push forward plans to introduce the hugely popular vehicle in the country.Tesla Motors was founded in 2003 by Musk and a group of Silicon Valley engineers looking to improve the performance and cut the costs of electric motors. The defining aspect of the Tesla vehicles and the Powerwall is the principles of the AC induction motor patented in 1888 by inventor Nikola Tesla. The resulting Tesla Roadster not only set a new standard for non-emission vehicles, but was also the fastest and most cost-effective electric car in the world.Tesla Motors turned its first profit in 2013, according to Forbes magazine, giving Musk a net worth of $13-billion (R209.4bn), while making Tesla a household name in the United States.Born in 1971, Musk grew up in Johannesburg and Pretoria and immigrated to Canada when he finished high school. He sold his first start­up, a company that provided maps and business directories, to Compaq Computer for $22-million. He went on to co-create the PayPal online payment system, which he later sold to eBay for $250m. This, in turn, financed Musk’s interests in alternative energy and space technology. His two business focuses now are Tesla and SpaceX, the private space exploration company dedicated to developing affordable and advanced space travel and research.Described by biographer Ashlee Vance as a “possessed genius on the grandest quest anyone has ever concocted, (Musk) is no less a (chief executive) chasing riches than a general marshalling troops to secure victory. Where Mark Zuckerberg wants to help you share baby photos, Musk wants to save the human race from self-imposed or accidental annihilation.”Source: AFKInsider, Tesla Motors, Elon Musk websiteWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

It also takes a motivated village to clean up the earth. The village geocachers created with Cache In Trash Out (CITO) events has a population of 11,124. That’s the population of Fredonia, New York. That’s the exact number  CITO souvenirs that have been earned by geocachers who have logged an “Attended” for a CITO event so far.  Geocachers attended hundreds of events in dozens of countries from April 20 through April 22. If each geocacher picked up ten pounds of trash, that’s over 50 tons of garbage removed from geocaching areas worldwide.Geocachers in Montana cleaning the roadside.It’s the same weights as a couple army tanks or say a large metal bridge. But each piece of litter was a crumpled wrapper or an old tire or a  piece of discarded lumber. It’s 50 tons of trash that’s no longer polluting that earth. Well done geocachers, well done.CITO weekend isn’t over yet. It continues today during Earth Day. Expect the final total number of geocachers who earned the CITO souvenir within the next couple of days.Geocachers from around the world posted pictures of their CITO events on the Geocaching Facebook page. We chose a few of the photos posted to feature in this blog.While the CITO weekend occurs only once a year, please CITO every time you geocache. It’s as easy as packing out a few soda bottles or a few pieces of litter. It may not seem like much, but when we all do it, it adds up quick!45 geocachers attended GC494V1  near Suhl, Germany to clean up all this trash.CITO is for all ages.
