DONG Energy has recorded a 32% increase in earnings from operating offshore wind farms in the first half of 2017 as compared to the same period a year earlier.Power generation from offshore wind increased by 34%, to 3.9TWh in H1 2017, as a result of newly constructed and commissioned offshore wind farms in Germany and the UK – the 258MW Burbo Bank Extension and the 582MW Gode 1 and 2. Offshore wind power accounted for 45% of the company’s total power generation.The 573MW Race Bank offshore wind farm in the UK produced its first power during the period as well.Revenue in the company’s Wind Division stood at DKK 10.9 billion (EUR 1.5 billion) in the first half of 2017, with gross investments reaching DKK 5.9 billion.The division’s underlying operating profit (EBITDA) for the period was DKK 6.3 billion, as compared to DKK 5.2 billion reported in H1 2016.Wind conditions were close to the norm in the first half of 2017, DONG said, and the availability of offshore wind farms was high, resulting in solid earnings from the company’s existing wind farms.Following the agreement to divest 50% of the company’s ownership interest in the German offshore wind farm Borkum Riffgrund 2 in 2017 instead of in 2018, DONG raised its 2017 EBITDA guidance for the continuing operations from DKK 15-17 billion to DKK 17-19 billion. This corresponds to an underlying growth of 18-32%.The company’s gross investments for 2017 are still expected to amount to DKK 18-20 billion.”Within one to two years we will likely have excess investment capacity compared to the target rating of BBB+/Baa1, assuming the current dividend policy, the current farm down model, the current Wind Power build out plan as well as the ambition of a 1 GW per year offshore wind build out from 2021-2025 are continued,” Henrik Poulsen, DONG Energy’s CEO and President, said.”The likely excess investment capacity materialises as more and more Wind Power assets come on line and start generating cash flow and has recently been positively impacted by the experienced decline in the build out cost per MW (LCoE). Value-enhancing, green growth opportunities beyond the current investment plan will thus be explored against tight strategic and financial criteria. This could naturally include additional opportunities within offshore wind – which remains our core focus – as well as other renewable technologies and within our downstream, customer-facing business.”Following the farm down of Borkum Riffgrund 2 and the expected farm downs of Walney Extension and Hornsea 1, DONG Energy will only consider farm downs subject to substantial value creation and risk diversification, Poulsen said.

For some reason I started thinking about David Johnson the other day. David was an athlete of mine when I taught at Whitewater High School in the mid 60’s. David came to Whitewater from another school system when he was a freshman. He didn’t know anybody so he joined the cross country team to feel that he was a part of his new school. Before it was over, David became an excellent runner and this let him go to college on a partial athletic scholarship. Besides the love for running, David also liked the outdoors. His college education allowed him to be a park ranger.David moved to Alaska to pursue his love for the outdoors. Before his untimely death of a heart attack, David started a marathon in his adopted state of Alaska. If you have a son/daughter who moves to a new school system as David did, make sure they find some activity that allows them to become involved and make new friends. David became one of the most popular students at Whitewater because he took a chance and came out for cross country.
Working working pushing pushing!! Onestepcloser! @arsenal @premierleagueA post shared by Santi Cazorla (@santicazorla) on Aug 11, 2017 at 10:50am PDT Related In a couple of Instagram posts, the Spaniard shared videos of his rehabilitation workouts with the caption, “One step more, one step closer”, as he hopes to be fit in time to help Arsenal’s charge for success this season. One step more, one step closer! #Lookingforwardtoseeyouall!A post shared by Santi Cazorla (@santicazorla) on Aug 23, 2017 at 8:04am PDT Arsenal midfielder, Santi Carzola is edging closer to a sensational return from his Achilles tendonitis injury.32-year-old Carzola, who had multiple operations on his achilles tendon, last played for the Gunners in the 6-0 Champions League win over Ludogorets in October. However, Arsenal will want to bounce back from last weekend’s shock defeat to Stoke City as they face a tough trip to Liverpool in the Premier League next weekend.
Would an embryonic stem cell by another name cease being human? Several recent articles on embryonic stem cells are going beyond just touting the potential cures from the controversial research, which involves creating and destroying a human embryo. Some are blurring the line between embryonic and adult stem cells (cf. 12/02/2006) and attempting to avoid ethically-charged language. Here are some ways that reporters are trying to make ES cells more palatable to the public:ES joins the army: An article on Science Daily claims that embryonic stem cells are being recruited in the war on terror. A University of Georgia research claims that neural cells induced to multiply from stem cells can detect toxins in the environment, like on a battlefield. The article fails to mention, however, why embryonic stem cells are needed, and whether adult stem cells could do the job just as well (cf. 07/19/2007). It also begins with this misleading clause that suggests that embryonic stem cells have already produced cures: “For more than a decade, Steve Stice has dedicated his research using embryonic stem cells to improving the lives of people with degenerative diseases and debilitating injuries.” The record shows, however, that only adult stem cells have produced therapies that can improve the lives of people, while embryonic stem cells arouse fears of a new era of eugenics (12/16/2006, 11/29/2006 08/13/2006).Get over it: The Editorial in Nature 9/27 urged Germans to get over their ethical qualms about embryonic stem cells and get with the international stem cell gold rush (cf. 12/16/2005). Some German ethicists have pointed to the success of adult stem cells to show that embryonic stem cells are unnecessary. In urging a change, Nature used only bandwagon arguments (cf. 07/31/2006): “The majority of scientists agree that work on both adult and embryonic sources of stem cells should run in parallel until much more is understood about their biology,” the editorial said. “But Germany is out of step with most European countries in permitting research only on human embryonic stem-cell lines that were created before January 2002, when regulations were first laid down.” The article admitted that the creation of new ES cell lines “involves destroying human embryos,” but urged scientists to step up their campaigns against the opponents of the controversial research – many of whom are still smarting from the bad reputation Germany inherited from human medical research atrocities of the Nazis (04/07/2005, 02/28/2006, 12/16/2006).Kahuna: In the same issue, Nature published an interview with Alan Trounson, newly appointed head of California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) – the $3 billion stem-cell center approved by California voters. The differences in success between adult and embryonic cells were blurred in his statement, “Mesenchymal [multipotent] stem cells are already in clinical trials. Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) are coming of age….” His ending statement was even more telling: “Adult stem cells are happening. Embryonic stem cells will come into use, and they won’t be immediate cures for everything. You need drugs and protocols as well as the cells, and you’ve got to work with the immune system.” Yet California voters had been swayed by tear-jerking stories of invalids who would be cured by embryonic stem cells. The problems from subjects’ immune systems rejecting embryonic stem cells have so far rendered them medically useless. On top of that, Trounson made it clear that no cures are forthcoming any time soon (cf. 10/13/2006).Loaded words: Because the words “embryonic” and “cloning” are touchy with the public, the US Human Embryonic Stem Cell Registry is changing its name to the Human Pluripotent Stem Cell Registry. Monya Baker reported in Nature 9/27 that this was intended to downplay ethically-charged words. Baker quoted a professor of rhetoric who called this “linguistic deflation of public anxiety.” The center was reacting to an executive order from President Bush that stem cell lines be expanded “in ethically responsible ways.” The same issue of Nature pointed to a promising avenue of research that might solve the ethical problems. “For practical and ethical reasons, researchers are on the lookout for ways to reprogramme one mature cell type into another,” said Huafeng Xie and Stuart H. Orkin in News and Views. “In one case, this might be as easy as switching off a single gene.” They highlighted research that showed it may be possible to turn one kind of cell into another kind through a process of “cellular reprogramming.” They pointed to a paper in the same issue by Cobaleda et al who found that “mature B cells can be converted to functional T cells, and reprogramming is achieved by B cells taking a step backwards to assume a more immature state.” If so, it might become possible to take adult cells from a person and convert them back into an embryonic state – no ethical qualms involved. “Such insights will, in turn, make the alteration of cell fates using modulation of gene expression and the generation of a specific cell population possible, which is a primary goal of regenerative medicine.” See also the 06/06/2007 and 08/25/2006 entries.As we have shown repeatedly before, ES stem-cell advocates are pushing their agenda past the ethical gatekeepers on selfish, pragmatic grounds, yet have no results to show for it. The appeals are always for Nobel Prizes and staying ahead in the international sweepstakes. Whenever an ethicist calls them on the questionable reasoning of taking one life to help another (07/11/2005), they hum and guffaw and dodge the issue. Now they are trying to blur the language with euphemisms to pull the wool over our eyes. Don’t let them get away with it (07/19/2007).(Visited 13 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0

They are desperately trying to shore up support for Darwin by showing that naturalistic science can do the job from the bottom up. This has all the hallmarks of East Germany boasting the day before the Berlin Wall fell. In spite of his collapsing economy, Honnecker was so confident of his ideology, he was planning a new high-tech fence that didn’t need guards to mow down its citizens wishing to escape to freedom; it could do the job automatically. Before he knew what hit him he was history. Look how Eugenie Scott is fighting little Ray Comfort with an arsenal of resources to overwhelm his little initiative to offer a little bit of Darwin-skeptical material to college students: she’s got a new Don’t Diss Darwin campaign to scare academia into action: “Creationism is coming to a campus near you.” The campaign website even sells “Darwin: Evolve!” posters and other silly propaganda – posters, bookmarks and flyers. Why the paranoia? The Darwin Stasi know that once the wall is breached there is no going back. Do your part to tear down this wall. Work fast: if it falls before Nov. 24, the 150th anniversary of Darwin’s Origin, wouldn’t that be one for the history books: big party for has-been falls flat.(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 In classical science, researchers were reluctant to announce bold conclusions without sufficient data. These days, it seems that science reporters are quick to announce sweeping conclusions that go far beyond the evidence – especially if they appear to support some sort of evolution.Planet magic crystal: Where to find intelligent life? Look for stars depleted in lithium. That seems to be the implication of a story in the BBC News and Science Daily that extrapolated measurements of lower lithium levels from some stars known to have planets. Maybe the aliens around those stars are using it for di-lithium crystals. Clara Moskowitz didn’t even need the lithium. Simple sunlike stars “May be Cosmic Road Signs to Intelligent Aliens,” she announced on Space.com. To her, this is all very logical: “The distinction between habitable planets and planets harboring intelligent life is based on the fact that intelligent life requires stars with lifetimes greater than the time required for intelligence to evolve,” she said. “For example, in the case of this solar system, we could not find ourselves around a star with a lifetime less than 4.5 billion years.” No other source for intelligent life than blind, purposeless evolution was entertained as a possibility.Cool earth: Science Daily leapt from a Stanford study of isotope ratios in rocks said to be 3.4 billion years old that the earth was cooler a billion years earlier than thought, and therefore life must have evolved earlier than thought. “Their findings suggest that the early ocean was much more temperate and that, as a result, life likely diversified and spread across the globe much sooner in Earth’s history than has been generally theorized.” How one gets from isotope ratios to life was not clear.Origin of life: An article in Science Daily is accompanied by a picture that looks like a scene from Frankenstein. Researchers at NASA-Ames are zapping ice with ultraviolet light. The headline announces, “NASA Reproduces A Building Block Of Life In Laboratory.” What really happened was that they made uracil (one of the pyrimidines in RNA) under highly specialized conditions. It’s not really news, anyway; Jonathan Sarfati on Creation.com wrote about this 10 years ago. Nevertheless, one of the researchers fired a conclusion heard round the universe: “Since we are simulating universal astrophysical conditions, the same is likely wherever planets are formed.” They speculated that UV light shining on ices could have formed the uracil in comets, but did not explain how the “whimpy” [sic] molecules would have survived re-entry or concentrated in significant amounts to do any good.Plant charity: PhysOrg reported on work on the yellow jewelweed. Experiments show that it recognizes kin from non-kin and adjusts its growth accordingly. Conclusion: “This study demonstrates that plants are social organisms. It shows that altruism is possible among plants and that response to both kin and strangers depend on the ecology of the plant species.” When they find plants donating to the Red Cross, they’ll really be onto something.Missing dino link: The BBC News announced, “Missing link dinosaur discovered.” It’s a sauropod that the discoverers infer walked on two legs most of the time but occasionally walked on all fours. But then the article added that it lived in the early Jurassic. “Although structurally it’s intermediate, it lived too late to be an actual ancestor, because true sauropods already existed [then].” Now it has to be described as an extinct “living fossil” (an oxymoron) because “the transition” (for which there is no evidence) “must have happened much earlier.” Science Daily was only slightly more reserved, announcing Darwinly, “New Species Of Vegetarian Dinosaur Close To Common Ancestor Of Gigantic Sauropods.”Dino sweat: Speaking of dinosaurs, PhysOrg reported on a comparative analysis of dinosaur body types. The scientists inferred that some of them must have been warm blooded because if not it would be hard for them to function. The headline: “Warm-blooded dinosaurs worked up a sweat.” The article also claimed that this demonstrates that warm-bloodedness (endothermy) “evolved” earlier: “This pushes the evolution of endothermy further back into the ancient past than many researchers expected, suggesting that dinosaurs were athletic, endothermic animals throughout the Mesozoic era.” No fossil dinosaur pole-vaulters were discovered.Bird philosophy: Some songbirds appear to use sets of syllables in their songs. PhysOrg jumped into a discussion of “The Link Between Birdsong And Human Language.” Maybe there is more scholarship in those tweets than we thought.Talking genes: Most popular science outlets were abuzz today about a paper in tomorrow’s Nature that discussed more research into the FOXP2 gene and its complex interactions with motor actions.1 The paper was reserved in its implications, as was the review by Dominguez and Rakic in the same issue,1 which said of the work by Konopka et al, “it answers many questions, but raises even more.” You wouldn’t know that by looking at the Live Science headline, where Jeanna Bryner announced triumphantly, “Human Speech Gene Found.” PhysOrg followed suit, saying, “Why can’t chimps speak? Study links evolution of single gene to human capacity for language.” New Scientist was a little more careful, saying in its headline, “Suite of chatterbox genes discovered.” It should be noted that no gene can create language (in terms of semantics, syntax, and abstract thought). What has been found is that mutations to the human FOXP2 gene cause serious problems with speech because the motor neurons involved in talking are affected.
(Visited 92 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 The media have jumped all over a discovery of fuzz on a small ornithischian dinosaur, ignoring the evolutionary problems.No sooner had we published the previous entry about true feathers on an imaginary dinosaur (7/24/14) when another paper came out in Science Magazine announcing “feathers” on a real dinosaur. The media spin machine immediately went into high gear:Earliest dinosaurs may have sported feathers (Science Magazine News)Did All Dinosaurs Sport Feathers? Downy Beast Suggests Yes (Live Science)Siberian Discovery Suggests Almost All Dinosaurs Were Feathered (National Geographic)Feathersaurus: plant-eating dinos had plumage too (New Scientist)The discovery of a weird dinosaur, Kulindadromeus zabaikalicus, looking something like a cross between a chicken and a fuzzy kangaroo according to the artist’s imagination, was announced in Science Magazine. The authors, however, preferred the phrase “featherlike structures” instead of feathers throughout the paper. The only times they spoke of “feathers” per se, they qualified the word as interpretive:Quill-like structures have been reported in the ornithischians Psittacosaurus and Tianyulong, but whether these were true feathers, or some other epidermal appendage, is unclear.Here we report a new ornithischian dinosaur, Kulindadromeus zabaikalicus, with diverse epidermal appendages, including grouped filaments that we interpret as avianlike feathers.They more closely resemble the monofilaments in the basal coelurosaur Sinosauropteryx and are similar to morphotype 1 in a recent evolutionary model of feathers.These groups of filaments are similar to feather morphotype 3 and resemble the down feathers of some modern chicken breeds, such as the Silkie, which are devoid of barbules.The presence of both simple and compound filamentous structures in Kulindadromeus (Fig. 4) supports the hypothesis that the integumentary structures in Ornithischia, already described in Psittacosaurus and Tianyulong, could be homologous to the “protofeathers” in non-avian theropods.These integumentary structures look nothing like bird flight feathers. They lack a central vane, barbs, barbules and hooks. They look more like bits of fuzz about 5 to 15 mm long. Some of the “compound” ones are mere bundles of monofilaments that converge at the base.The problems for evolution are more serious. These filaments (not “feathers”) were found on an ornithischian (bird-hipped) dinosaur, rather than the saurischian (lizard-hipped) dinosaurs thought to be ancestral to birds. In Science Magazine News, Michael Balter untangles the confusion surrounding the names, and points out the phylogenetic problem:If these bristly structures represented early feathers, as researchers have increasingly come to think, it would mean that feathers evolved in dinosaurs that preceded the evolutionary split between so-called saurischians (which include the meat-eating species) and ornithischians (which comprise plant-eating species) more than 200 million years ago. (Despite their confusing name, the ornithischians are not related to birds, which are saurischians.)Whatever adorned Kulindadromeus, therefore, had nothing to do with flight feathers. (The ornithischians include Triceratops, not exactly a frequent flyer by the looks of it.) Finding fuzz on ornithischians and “coming to think” they represented “early feathers,” therefore, forces evolutionists to imagine that the “featherlike structures” emerged in a common ancestor of both branches, much further back in time than previously thought. Subsequently, many sub-branches in both groups must have lost the structures, reverting to scales. It also forces them to imagine feathers having some other function, perhaps mating display or insulation. The fuzz was “co-opted” for flight millions of years later, in the branches where flight appeared.In the paper, the authors mention “preservation of the scales as carbonaceous remains” found under “a thin superficial carbonaceous sheet” that was removed to see the structures. This seems to imply that primordial, unpermineralized material was found in the specimens. As to their interpretation, even dinobird champion Xing Xu “cautions that the fossils are still too fragmentary to be certain that the more complex feathery structures actually correspond to those found later in birds.”In their haste to celebrate birds as dinosaurs, though, most of the reporters downplayed these difficulties. Indeed, some appeared ready to support a remake of Jurassic Park, outfitting all the dinosaurs with colorful feathers, even T. rex. “Steven Spielberg’s ‘Jurassic Park’ might need a little more revising,” Tanya Lewis said in Live Science; “– a newly discovered dinosaur species offers hints that feathers were much more common among the ancient beasts than once thought.”There appears to be a clear dividing line at this point between fuzz and true flight feathers. Evolutionists may call the former “protofeathers” or “featherlike structures” but that doesn’t mean they are feathers or related to feathers. We think the interpretation of the structures as secondary phenomena resulting from taphonomy (fossilization) should be reconsidered. In any case, the fuzz on this new creature, if it was functional on the living animal, had nothing to do with the evolution of birds or flight, so it doesn’t support the dino-to-bird story line. Some reporters need to learn the scientific values of intellectual integrity, epistemic modesty, and interpretive restraint.
