Wave Venture, a specialist wave energy consultancy and software provider, is developing an innovative Techno Economic analysis product called “Wave Venture TE”. This software is a hybrid desktop-cloud integrated engineering and financial analysis package.Wave Venture have been developing components of this integrated Wave Venture TE software for several years. Supported by Marine-i, they aim to have an integrated product ready to launch soon that will significantly impact the wave energy industry.The software will allow for Wave Energy Converter (WEC) developers to rapidly and accurately analyse their devices. This software brings the additional benefit of optimisation that includes all stages of a commercial wave farm development.MD, Ronan Costello, says: “Receiving grant support from Marine-i has given a huge boost to the project. It will help us to validate the dynamic simulation component of the software by comparing these with published results.”“There is a wide range of customers who can benefit greatly from our services. These include businesses investing in wave energy technology , organisations conducting research and development on wave energy conversion systems, and companies planning the deployment of wave energy farms.”Professor Lars Johanning, who leads the Marine-i team, says: “We felt that it was important to support this pioneering project. Not only could it put Cornwall at the forefront of a new field of commercial analytics, but it could also help stimulate growth in the wider wave energy industry, by giving investors and WEC developers the accurate information they need to formulate optimum commercial strategies.”“The key elements of Wave Venture TE are currently being used by our team, who are all very proficient in the correct application of the software. However, there is a big difference between an ‘in-house’ system and one that can achieve success in the broader market.“There are therefore a number of key milestones that we need to reach before we are ready to take the product to full commercial launch. These include running the software on multiple example applications, verifying the accuracy of the software on these example applications, and ensuring that all the documentation needed for the development of user manuals and training materials is in place,” concluded Costello.

He called me and told me that the club was asking us for help because they don’t have any earnings today,” Dybala began.“An agreement was reached and he signed the statement together with the president. Obviously we spoke about him in the group chat of the whole team and there were differing opinions. There are even players who were one or two matches off activating certain clauses and we don’t know what is going to happen,” he continued.“It’s difficult for everyone to agree and even more so in such a delicate topic so therefore those which have been here longer spoke, we shared ideas from other groups who are in a similar situation and we reached the conclusion that this was the best thing to do,” he added.But that was not the only thing he talked about. He also talked about his relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo, the star player of the team. “On a personal note, he pleasantly surprised me,” he stated.When he arrived at Juventus, there was lots of expectation because in the Champions League, we had been eliminated by Real Madrid and there were several arguments during the match, even with him,” revealed.“As a person he’s an excellent guy, very friendly on and off the field, he is always willing to speak and listen as well, something which surprised me because sometimes, when they are such important players, they are not like that,” he said on the Portuguese star.

Mesut Ozil has refused to take a 12.5 percent pay cut at Arsenal. Mesut Ozil’s agent has urged Premier League stars to reject the pay cut The midfielder, 31, is the highest-paid player at the Emirates on a whopping £350,000-per-week. Arsenal confirmed on Monday that the first-team squad and Mikel Arteta will take a cut due to the coronavirus outbreak. But Ozil has not accepted the agreement as he did not want to rush into a decision. Ozil’s wages work out at £18.2m a year, which means his income will fall by £2.3m. Arsenal are likely to continue talks are set to continue with Ozil. The German is one of three stars who have decided against taking the pay cut. It is understood that Ozil wants to see the financial impact of the Covid-19 pandemic before he parts with his wages. He has made it clear he may be willing to do it in the future and has respect for the decisions made by his team-mates. It is thought the former Real Madrid star is open to deferring even more than the 12.5 per cent pay cut that has been agreed. Loading… Ozil’s agent Dr Erkut Sogut refused to comment after calling for Premier League stars to not accept the pay cut. He said: “I wouldn’t recommend agreeing a cut today because I don’t know tomorrow if the league will be played, if clubs will get TV and sponsorship money. “What the exact financial impact is on the clubs, we can see three to six months later – but we can’t see it today. “Deferral is an option but not to agree a cut today when the clubs may still make the same profit as last year. “When politicians tell players to do their part, it’s a distraction because they can’t even protect NHS staff. “It’s east to target these ‘greedy’ Premier League players – but many players do so much for charity.” According to reports, Arsenal will repay the 12.5 per cent losses back to the players in full if they qualify for the Champions League in the next two seasons. But will be hit by the full 12.5 per cent if they do not qualify for Europe. The club statement said: “We are pleased to announce that we have reached a voluntary agreement with our first-team players, head coach and core coaching staff to help support the club at this critical time. read also:Iwobi: Ozil is wrongly portrayed in the media “The move follows positive and constructive discussions.

But the hosts were back in front by the 74th minute as Lukaku converted from James McCarthy’s pass, the on-loan Chelsea striker taking his tally for Everton this season to nine goals. The three points mean Roberto Martinez’s side are – for a few hours at least – up a place to fourth in the table, while Southampton remain ninth. Martinez made five changes to his starting line-up from the surprise Sunderland loss, with some of them enforced. Captain Phil Jagielka was missing due to what the club confirmed was a hamstring injury, so defender Antolin Alcaraz came in for his Toffees debut. Goalkeeper Tim Howard and midfielder Gareth Barry were also absent having picked up a red card and fifth yellow card of the season in the Sunderland match respectively. Howard’s replacement was Robles, making his first Everton Premier League start. But while there were some key men not in the side, the Merseysiders were boosted by the return of full-back Leighton Baines, who had sat out the past six matches after suffering a broken toe. And Everton certainly looked no weaker than usual in the early stages as Coleman’s third goal in four games fired them into the lead. Everton finished 2013 on a high as Romelu Lukaku’s first goal in six games helped them to a 2-1 home victory over Southampton. The Republic of Ireland international collected the ball from Leon Osman, advanced down the right flank and then cut into the box, beating James Ward-Prowse in the process, before unleashing an emphatic effort beyond Kelvin Davis and into the net. In the 18th minute, Steven Naismith chased a long ball over the top and, as Davis caught it, went to ground in the area having felt contact from Dejan Lovren, but no penalty was given. Some nice build-up play from Southampton then saw Adam Lallana’s clever flick tee up Rickie Lambert, who brought a save out of Robles, but the assistant referee’s flag was raised which replays suggested was an incorrect decision. Luke Shaw sent a tame effort across the face of Robles’ goal moments later, and both sides struggled to create anything truly incisive for the rest of the first half, with Lukaku failing to make the most of one particularly decent-looking opportunity to send a cross in. Having juggled the ball away from Sylvain Distin and Osman on the edge of the area, Lallana dragged a shot wide, Ward-Prowse looped another off-target and, at the other end, Naismith looked to get his head to a delightful Baines free-kick delivery but Southampton cleared. In the opening seconds of the second half Shaw made a run down the left and played a good ball into the danger zone, where a touch from the sliding McCarthy ensured Lallana could not finish. Bryan Oviedo – booked moments earlier for a sliding challenge on Calum Chambers – then laid the ball to Ross Barkley, who side-footed wide right in front of goal. Southampton looked to apply pressure once more and after a Jay Rodriguez shot deflected behind off McCarthy, Robles spilled a cross before smothering the ball with Lambert lurking. And there was another suspect moment for Robles soon after as Ramirez collected the ball from Lallana and sent a dipping effort goalwards that seemed to fly right through the Spanish goalkeeper on its way in. Robles will have surely been relieved to have seen Everton’s advantage restored three minutes later. Having received the ball from substitute Steven Pienaar as the Toffees swept forward, McCarthy neatly set up Lukaku, who smashed it home past Davis. Lukaku sent an attempt over soon after and with Southampton desperately looking to salvage something, Shaw then did likewise. In the last few minutes Lukaku might have added another for Everton, but saw his shot saved by Davis. Press Association The Toffees – looking to bounce back from the Boxing Day defeat to Sunderland that had ended their hopes of going through the whole calendar year unbeaten at Goodison Park in the Barclays Premier League – went ahead in the ninth minute when Seamus Coleman burst into the area and finished with a powerful strike. Saints substitute Gaston Ramirez equalised in the 71st minute, beating Toffees goalkeeper Joel Robles, who it appeared should have done better in his attempt to save the effort, with a shot from distance.
Several states are reporting that with the rate of unemployment continuing the way it is, they will most likely run out of unemployment benefits by the end of this year.“This is an unprecedented crisis,” Jared Walczak, state tax policy director for the nonprofit Tax Foundation told Newsy. “We have, during really the entire history of the unemployment compensation system, not seen something quite like this.”According to the report, there is no federal requirements for the amount of money states need to keep in their unemployment trust funds so many states were left largely unprepared for such a large number of residents to file for benefits.Over 22 million people have filed for unemployment since the start of the pandemic and many more will likely follow.“People have lost their jobs in a very short period of time,” Walczak said. “The state systems are overloaded. They’re having trouble even processing claims, getting the money out the door. But it is overwhelming those systems. It is overwhelming their finances.”Wyoming is the only state that has reported that they will be able to maintain their benefits after a year’s time.California, New York, and Ohio say they could be out of money by the end of April.In order to continue providing for those who are out of work, states will be able to take out interest-free loans from the federal government, however, the loan must be paid back within two years, and may become an extra burden for taxpayers.
If anyone needed an explanation as to why the Solvay boys basketball team could break a 25-year Section III championship drought, Monday night’s memorable 74-69 overtime victory over Westhill provided it.So many things could have derailed the Bearcats, both early in this game and then late in regulation and the four-minute extra period, but Solvay weathered all of them and scored the game’s final five points to break a 69-69 tie – without its leading scorer on the floor.Clearly, the Warriors were far from the same team the Bearcats handled 71-56 on Jan. 2, having gone 7-1 since that game and moved into no. 25 in the state Class B rankings, eight spots behind Solvay at no. 17. And Westhill’s newfound confidence manifested itself in a first half that would have sank most opponents. Not stopping there, Bagozzi, along with Elijah Wright and Jaimen Bliss, pushed the Bearcats in front early in the fourth quarter, and it was up 60-52 with four minutes left, having gone on a 30-7 run.But Brown switched the momentum again with eight consecutive points, and by the time Elliott Rouse converted with 2:20 left, Westhill had tied it again, 64-64.A tense exchange followed, the Warriors going in front 66-65 when Rouse hit with less than a minute left. A Wright free throw pulled Solvay even 66-66, and when the Bearcats could not get a shot off in the final seconds of regulation, it went to OT.They were still tied, 69-69, when Bagozzi fouled out with 1:19 left in the extra period. Again, the Bearcats appeared to have absorbed a decisive blow, but again it responded in a convincing manner.Wright forced a steal, then powered in a layup with 53 seconds to play. On Westhill’s next possession, Antonio Gonzalez made a big block, the Bearcats ran down the clock and Will Evans, in the game for Bagozzi, hit a lay-up, was fouled and sank a clinching free throw.For the night, Wright had 23 points, just behind Bagozzi’s 26 points as Bliss got 18 points. Brown finished with 24 points, helped by 14 points from Rouse and 12 points from freshman Luke Gilmartin.This exciting win, plus clinching the OHSL Liberty National division regular-season title, made Wednesday’s 66-61 defeat to Fayetteville-Manlius in the regular-season finale a bit easier to take.Bagozzi was held to nine points as Bliss got 20 points and Wright 14 points. Ethan Page led the Hornets with 17 points as Charlie Gadsden, James Madill (12 points each) and Luke Davison (10 points) also hit double figures.Now, with its 16-4 overall record, Solvay would wait out two full weeks before finding out on Feb. 19 where it would start the sectional Class B tournament, hoping that, by that point, Justin Scott would return from the injury that sidelined him in the second half of the regular season.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Zach Brown set the tone, hitting all four of his 3-pointers in the first quarter, and it didn’t stop there, the Warriors eventually connecting nine times beyond the arc in the first half.As if that wasn’t enough, Westhill’s vaunted defense appeared ready to shut Solvay down, shutting them out in the last four-plus minutes of the second quarter on the way to establishing a 43-25 margin at the break.Still trailing 45-30 in the third quarter, Solvay completely turned the game around, fueled by Brock Bagozzi, the senior guard burning Westhill for 16 points in that period to erase most of its deficit.

Moving from college politics to the national presidency, nothing changed. While working to dismantle Democratic candidate Edmund Muskie’s presidential campaign in 1972, Segretti sent a forged letter to the press alleging Muskie was prejudiced against French Canadian Americans. Segretti later pleaded guilty to the Watergate-related charges and served four months in jail. “With the type of underground political situation that exists on this campus, we would be infiltrated and broken by [Theta Nu Epsilon] if we opened our ranks to all students,” Chapin told the Daily Trojan in 1962. Chapin also publicly blamed TNE as the main source of organizational difficulties for the Representation Party. Segretti’s tumultuous senatorial campaign was a product of USC’s system for student government in the ’60s. Cheating to win was a tactic Segretti and the others learned during their undergraduate years. In a rally for presidential candidate Moss, two students rioted by throwing eggs at Moss and other rally speakers, which was rumored to have been caused by other “unfriendly political factions,” though not proven. A sound truck for presidential candidate Garcetti had its sign “torn down and burned and the truck itself mobbed” and no suspects were found, according to a Daily Trojan article. Student government elections used to be more than platform points and debates. TRG’s victory reached further than USC’s student elections. With the line between aspirations and ethics now blurred, members of TRG understood what political success took. As Chapin, Segretti and other members of the USC Mafia made their way to the national stage, the ’62 ASSC elections served as a microcosm of what would take place in the future on a much larger scale. According to the two reporters, members of TRG stuffed ballot boxes with false votes, planted spies in other student political organizations and spread false campaign literature about other candidates during the student elections. Attacks between parties grew worse as the voting period drew nearer. During the student elections, Chapin and Segretti engaged in what Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein would later call “ratfucking,” a term used by USC students to describe gaining a political advantage through dirty tricks and cheating. Known as the Associated Students of Southern California, USC’s student government was made up of students from multiple student political parties, including TRG, the Representation Party and the underground Theta Nu Epsilon. Instead of having 12 senators as the current Undergraduate Student Government does, ASSC’s legislative body consisted of senators who represented specific academic majors. TRG Chairman Chapin, who later served nine months in prison for his involvement with Watergate in 1974, attacked USC presidential candidate Gil Garcetti by claiming his filing as “independent” was inaccurate due to his membership to the Chi Phi fraternity, while candidate Dann Moss accused Garcetti of using “circus techniques” in his campaign. The ’62 student elections featured Segretti and other students who’d work for President Nixon’s reelection campaign a decade later — a campaign notable for its political sabotage and the Watergate scandal. When running for student senator in 1962, Donald Segretti entered a race where disruption campaigns, spying and cheating were fixtures in USC’s student politics. With headline-grabbing accusations from candidates and open warfare between student political groups, the elections erupted with controversies unprecedented in today’s student government. Political parties openly clashed with each other in Spring 1962, unafraid of singling out opposing candidates to better their own chances. As a member of Trojans for Representative Government, Segretti met other future Watergate figures in the group, including White House Press Secretary Ron Ziegler and Nixon’s deputy assistant President Dwight Chapin — altogether known as the “USC Mafia.” (Photo from the Daily Trojan archives) The platform points for the 1962 presidential candidates serve as a testament to their time. Candidates sought to extend library hours to 11 p.m., develop programs for “foreign” students and create an accessible student directory. However, similar to today, many candidates called for greater representation of student groups in the student government. On March 15, the first day of voting, controversy broke among students and political groups over illegal votes and improper ballot procedures. This included the president of TRG, who complained he witnessed votes being counted without confirmating the identity of the students, similar to the actions Watergate reporters Woodward and Bernstein had later accused TRG of doing. With distrust surging between opposing political parties, student groups worked to prevent outsiders from gaining information. Chapin sparked protests during the election by attempting to rework TRG’s constitution to bar students from joining who had previously worked with any other political party on campus. After winning a three-way runoff vote, TRG was victorious — TRG candidate Bart Ledder captured the ASSC presidency and Segretti won the senatorial position. The Daily Trojan described the election as “one of the longest, most controversial and emotion-packed elections in USC history.” In the story recounting the announcement of the result, the Daily Trojan wrote that “a crowded Senate Chambers throbbed with victory cries” as the TRG candidate was “carried to the top of the Senate table on the shoulders of his enthusiastic supporters.”
