Four US States Get Offshore Wind Support

first_imgThe Business Network for Offshore Wind has partnered with New York, New Jersey, Virginia and Maryland in the United States to help them develop offshore wind projects.The Network has dedicated to bringing offshore wind supply-chain practitioners in all four states and encouraging the states interested in the industry to work together for the sake of jobs, costs and green energy.The organization is working with the New York State Energy Research & Development (NYSERDA) to assist with a supply chain database and has conducted outreach, which included companies’ offshore wind capabilities and specific supply chain fields, so NYSERDA can choose whom to meet.In New Jersey, the Business Network will facilitate and help assess the supply chain and communication between working groups and the public and will connect companies to the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJ BPU), as part of a team leading the development of the state’s strategic plan for offshore wind.Furthermore, the Network will work with BVG Associates in Virginia to help the Commonwealth strengthen its position to attract the offshore wind supply chain and service industry. The organization is also working to formalize the Maryland Offshore Wind Cluster, aiming to expand public and private sector knowledge, expertise and contacts in order to participate in the global offshore wind supply chain and maximize the state’s content in the development of projects.Additionally, the organization has been subcontracted to work with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to assist the development of a new suite of offshore standards and guidelines that will clarify the requirements for developers and equipment manufacturers and allow regulators to adopt best industry practices.“Working with the energy experts in these states, we will encourage them to help each other create electricity at lower costs for all their customers,” said Liz Burdock, the Network Executive Director and Co-founder.“When states can aggregate projects together and provide developers with scale, the industry can achieve more favorable financing and supply chain economies, driving down costs further while simultaneously creating an abundance of jobs.”last_img read more

Dennerby plans exposure tours for India U-17 women’s team

first_img The former Swedish women’s national team coach informed that each player has been given a personalised training programme and the coaching staff are closely monitoring their progress during the lockdown. Hence when the camp resumes later this year, he can focus more on the technical side of the players. “The delay will at least help us to recover the three months that we are losing now. I hope the girls are starving to be back on the pitch. We will check the fitness levels first (when we get back). We have to ensure that they are in good shape when they arrive. Then, of course, we come to the technical part. After a week together we will be working on the technical aspects and improve the things we need to. We need to gather the momentum that we had in March. We have time on our side and the girls are ambitious enough so I am confident that we will be able to do a good job.” The tactician hopes that he will be able to undertake some exposure trips as planned earlier against competent opponents. He believes that playing top teams is paramount to improving the level of the girls and the tri-nation tournament held in Mumbai in December 2019 was an important step in that direction. “It is sad to miss exposure tours. It was important for us to play those games against higher-ranked teams. I hope we have another opportunity to play those games in the winter. But if we can’t go out we have to deal with it as people’s lives are important. “(But) it was a very encouraging tournament that was held in Mumbai. The first game against Sweden was very good. We had a few good chances. We gained valuable experience. They understood the level they have to reach when they played against the superior European teams. In the World Cup, we will not get seven-eight chances and we have to make the most of the few chances that come our way. It is important for the forwards to have a plan, where they want to place the ball, and then improve their finishing,” expressed the coach. read also:India U17 job: Dennerby reveals Why he opted for Dede There has been a hue and cry over football being played again in empty stadiums amidst the Coronavirus pandemic but Dennerby has thrown his weight behind the resumption of the sport. “It is good that they started playing. Players love to play in front of a full stand. But players are professionals and they do the best they can in every situation. No one is really sure what is going to happen with the pandemic. In Sweden, they are planning to start leagues in the middle of June and I think it is good (to restart football),” concluded the former footballer. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 India Under-17 head coach, Thomas Dennerby, is proposing exposure tours for his wards ahead of the rescheduled World Cup championship. Former Super Falcons Coach Thomas Dennerby with some of the India U-17 players On May 12, FIFA announced that the 2020 U-17 Women’s World Cup, set to be hosted by India, will take place from February 17 to March 7, 2021. The marquee event was originally scheduled to be held from November this year before the ongoing Coronavirus crisis necessitated a change in schedule. Dennerby, who is currently in Sweden, was excited to get the new dates and is raring to get back on the pitch with his squad as soon as the situation permits. “It makes everyone happy to get new dates. It is a huge tournament and we hope to get good support from Indians next year. With the new dates coming in, it will help both players and staff to have the right mentality. When you know it is happening, it is time to get back to work giving 100 per cent once again,” stated the Swedish national in a live chat organised by the AIFF (All India Football Federation). The 60-year-old has got vast experience working in women’s football and the AIFF appointed him after he terminated his contract with the Nigerian football federation. He feels that the Indian squad at hand has got good technical players but they have to improve on the physical aspects and decision-making to compete with the stronger European nations. “The Indian FA approached me in September (2019). It is a challenging job, especially since India has not played (women’s) World Cup before. Moreover, since 2005 I have been working only with the senior teams. So (it is) good to be back with the kids. The players are technically good, with good match-reading capabilities. But if we compare with the best teams. we are a bit off on the physical side. “The decision-making has to be quicker. If the fastest player on the pitch handles the ball slowly, a bad touch leads to a slower build-up. We work hard to play with a few touches. There are quite a few things to do. “We have to increase the tempo of the game. Fitness is an important part and if you run fast and pass the ball with accuracy, the job is done. It all comes together. But the important part is the decision-making. Therefore I want to play against high-ranked teams. It helps increase your decision making. You get less time to decide against those teams. We have to help the players speed that up,” opined Dennerby.

Aston Villa defender Jordan Amavi ruled out for the rest of the season

first_img “Everyone at the club wishes Jordan a speedy recovery and we look forward to seeing him back on a football pitch as soon as possible.” The left-back was injured after making a challenge in the second half of the European Under-21 qualifier in Guingamp and was taken to hospital before undergoing scans on Friday. Losing Amavi is a significant blow to new Villa boss Remi Garde, who replaced Tim Sherwood earlier this month. Amavi has made 12 appearances since joining from Nice in the summer and was recalled by Garde for his first game in charge as Villa drew 0-0 with Manchester City immediately prior to the international break. That r esult ended a run of seven straight league defeats for Villa but they remain rooted to the foot of the Premier League standings and five points adrift of safety. The 21-year-old suffered the injury during France Under-21s’ win over Northern Ireland on Thursday night. A Villa statement read: ” Aston Villa can confirm defender Jordan Amavi has been ruled out for the rest of the 2015-16 Premier League season with a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. Aston Villa defender Jordan Amavi will miss the rest of the season with a cruciate knee ligament injury, the Barclays Premier League club have announced.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Cricket News Rahul Dravid Asked To Depose Before BCCI Ethics Officer On November 12 In Conflict of Interest Matter

first_imgNew Delhi: BCCI ethics officer DK Jain has asked Indian cricket great Rahul Dravid to appear in person for the second time, on November 12,  for “further submissions and clarifications” on the conflict of interest allegations levelled against him. The 46-year-old former India captain had earlier explained his case in the personal hearing held in Mumbai on September 26. MPCA life member Sanjiv Gupta had filed the complaint against Dravid, alleging conflict of interest in his current role as National Cricket Academy (NCA) Head and being an India Cements employee.”Jain wrote to Dravid on Wednesday night, asking him to depose on November 12 in New Delhi. Gupta too will be heard,” a BCCI official told PTI.Dravid is currently the NCA Director in Bengaluru besides being a vice-president in the India Cements group, which owns the IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings. He was also the head coach of the India A and Under-19 teams before being handed the NCA role, which includes monitoring the progress of these two sides as well.Dravid has already given a reply and defended himself saying he has taken leave of absence from India Cements and he has nothing to do with the Chennai Super Kings.As per the BCCI constitution, no individual can hold more than one post at the same time.The Committee of Administrators (CoA) was in charge of the BCCI when the September hearing took place but a new set of officer-bearers were elected last week, ending the 33-month tenure of the Supreme Court-appointed panel.The new BCCI president, Sourav Ganguly, has already said that the conflict of interest is a “very serious issue” facing Indian cricket. In fact, Ganguly had  lashed out after Dravid was issued a notice in August, saying “God help Indian cricket”.Before demitting the office, the CoA, in its 11th and final status report submitted to the Supreme Court, had recommended some key amendments to a “straight-jacketed” conflict of interest clause in the BCCI constitution.If the amendment is accepted by the apex court, former players with less than two-year contracts with the BCCI or state associations, will be allowed to have multiple roles.They will also be allowed to join multiple committees like the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) and won’t be barred from commentary stints.

Media wait outside Manley Field House for possible execution of search warrant

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 27, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Meghin: medelane@syr.edu | @meghinwithani UPDATED: Nov. 28, 2011 at 2:49 p.m. Shortly before 2 p.m., media personnel who had been camped out at Manley Field House all day sprang into action when they saw two men walking down the hallway and enter a locked part of the building. One was holding a stack of papers in his hand. Reporters and photographers followed the men down the hallway, taking photographs and trying to ask questions. The reporters were stopped when the men entered the locked area. Reporters were camped at Manley after a rumor surfaced that a search warrant would be executed. The possible search warrant would be a part of the investigation into former associate men’s basketball coach Bernie Fine. Police opened an investigation on Nov. 17. Fine was placed on administrative leave the same day the investigation began and Fine was fired from the university Sunday. A young female walking down the hallway toward the exit of Manley was angry with the media presence.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text ‘Pathetic,’ she said. ‘You are all pathetic.’ Shortly after the two initial men entered the locked area, more people entered, either with a key or an SUID card. Pete Moore, director of athletic communications, spoke to reporters inside Manley before entering the locked area and said he was unsure of whether or not a search warrant would be executed at Manley. Moore exited the area and headed back into Manley shortly afterward. The search warrant rumor came from a report by NewsChannel 9. The station reported, in an online article, that a ‘source in a position to know’ said search warrants would be executed. The article was later updated to include another source in a position to know who said search warrants would not be executed. At 1:22 p.m., the article was updated to say that search warrants would not be executed. medelane@syr.educenter_img Commentslast_img read more
