UK to get new nuclear power stations

Wednesday, July 12, 2006

The British government has given permission for new nuclear power stations to be built in the United Kingdom. This decision follows months of public debate and controversy over the proposal. Many Britons have argued for greater use of renewable energy supplies, but the government has said that even with a big increase in investment, renewable sources will not meet all of the UK’s additional energy demands. It is expected that 25 GW of additional generating capacity will be required over the next two decades, partly as compensation for old nuclear stations which will be closed down. This additional capacity must be met while reducing overall greenhouse gas emission as per the Kyoto Protocol.

The government also announced big increases in spending on renewable energy research and for the construction of onshore wind farms. It is claimed that 20% of energy will be produced from renewables by 2020, and if there are new breakthroughs in renewable energy science this figure may be increased further. Philip Wolfe of the Renewable Energy Association (REA) told the BBC “The government has seen the light on renewables. The energy review supports what we and many others have been consistently saying – that renewables, energy efficiency and decentralised systems are the strongest prospects for secure and sustainable energy supplies.”

The new nuclear plants will cost 400-500 million UK pounds (700-900 million US dollars) and will generate 1.5 to 2 GW of power each. These will provide the baseline amount of additional power should there be a lack of success in new areas of renewable energy research. The private sector will initiate, fund, construct and operate the new nuclear plants and will cover the full cost of decommissioning and their full share of long-term waste management costs. The Government proposes to address potential barriers to new nuclear stations, but says it will not provide any taxpayer money for the nuclear industry – tax investment will only be put into renewable energy research. This approach is similar to the successful approach adopted in the USA. It contrasts with early UK nuclear power development, where individual power plants or small groups of plants were planned and built by separate publicly funded research and engineering groups, but there was poor planning of nationwide issues such as waste management. Critics argue that the government has only put the nuclear option on the table as it is privately run and does not require government investment, whereas increasing renewable energy production would cost taxpayer money.

The review also discusses energy self-sufficiency, and points out that the increase in renewable energy to 20% of the total will improve the UK’s self sufficiency. No mention is made of opening uranium mines in the Orkney islands (or reopening Cornish uranium mines) in order to make the UK self-sufficient in uranium, something which Margaret Thatcher tried to address in 1980.

Some critics were disappointed that the review had little discussion of the reduction of emissions from transport, a sector which gives a larger contribution to the total UK emissions than electricity generation. This may relate to the high costs associated with significant reductions in emissions in the transport sector.

Marketing Planning For Small Business}

Submitted by: Sadie Peterson

Now is the time to start planning your marketing budget for next year. If you’re like most small businesses, you’re thinking “What marketing budget?”.

I know – marketing often falls behind priorities like making payroll, buying supplies, and paying the electrical bill.

But if you want your business to grow, ignoring marketing is the worst thing you could do. You might have the best product in the world, but unless the world knows about your product, you won’t be in business next year. And with 99% of new businesses failing within five years, you can’t afford to skimp on marketing.

When building your marketing budget, consider the following aspects of marketing:

YouTube Preview Image

Public Relations – press releases, media stunts, etc.

Web Marketing – website development, PPC campaigns, SEO, and more.

Advertising – print, tv, or radio.

Community Involvement – sponsorships, food drives, etc.

Print Pieces – brochures, business cards, flyers, etc. As a rule of thumb – many businesses put 10% of their PROFITS each year into marketing. You might use this as a guideline when you develop your own marketing budget.

Whether you’re considering advertising online, in print, or via radio or TV, you should consider the following factors when deciding on an advertising channel:

Reach – how many people will this advertisement reach?

Target – are these people that will buy my products? Is this the right market? For many advertisers, TV and radio reach far too many people, and are very untargeted. Trade publications, on the other hand, may reach EXACTLY the right demographic for your product or service.

Appropriate – is this an appropriate place for your message? Will it make sense to the readers/viewers?

Value – is this the best way to reach this audience? Are there other venues that will cost less per person to reach, but be just as effective? Remember to compare different advertising venues in terms of reach – cost per person/reader/viewer.

Yellow Sheep River develops €123 Linux based computer

Tuesday, March 21, 2006

Engineers at China’s Yellow Sheep River have developed a desktop computer, called a Municator, which costs only €123 ($150 US). The machine is designed to help bridge the digital divide in China and to expand China’s small domestic semiconductor industry. Its development has been heavily subsidized by local governments.

The Municator measures 14.5 x 18 x 3.7 cm. (5.7 x 7.1 x 1.5 in.), and weighs 0.65 kg. (1.4 pounds). It is expected to use an existing TV as a monitor. The operating system is a GNU/Linux distribution, known as Thinix 3.0, which is developed by YellowSheepRiver Inc. itself and overseen by the Chinese government for security reasons. The Municator was shown last week at the 2006 CeBIT Fair in Hannover, Germany.

Video coverage from CeBIT 2006 speculated that the Municator will include applications such as: Firefox for web browsing, Thunderbird for e-mail, Gaim for instant messaging, Skype for VoIP, Red Office (99 percent compatible with Microsoft Office and based on Open Office) for Linux for word processing, and MPlayer for audio/video playback. The Skype application for VoIP is currently only available from Skype on i386-32 processors under Linux, but CeBit’s video briefly shows a beta version of Skype running on the Municator’s screen.

The 64-bit Godson 2c 400-800 MHz CPU used in the machine has a MIPS-like instruction set, and is roughly as fast as a 500-mHz Pentium III. The Godson II is made exclusively in China, and consumes relatively little power for its speed in comparison to x86 Intel and compatible AMD chips. A similar Chinese laptop project called the Longmeng also uses the Godson II.

No version of Microsoft Windows supports the Godson II, and due to the independent nature of the Chinese government, the Municator is unlikely to ever run Microsoft Windows or its applications. Banners at CeBIT 2006 proclaim “Say No To Wintel Try Now!”

The MIT Media Lab has a similar initiative to develop an inexpensive Linux machine, known as the $100 laptop, which seeks to begin production by the end of 2007.

Hemorrhoid Treatment How To Use Suppositories Effectively

By Bello Gbenga

Suppositories are drugs that are administered in form of anal tablets. These drugs are inserted into the anus where they gradually dissolve and are absorbed into the body. Hemorrhoids treatments suppositories are bullet shaped and are wrapped individually in foil in order to keep them clean and safe. Hemorrhoid suppositories consist of things like cocoa butter which are solid at room temperature. (Click the links in the last paragraph below to discover the best natural treatment for hemorrhoids)

A couple of suppositories consist of drugs that are active in low doses. They consist of very low doses of steroids like hydrocortisone, phenylephrine HCI or starch. You can find these in some popular over the counter drugs like Tucks and Preparation H. You can as well come across numerous generic varieties like Target or CVS. Hemorrhoid suppositories are usually arranged in the same sections as laxatives.(Click the links in the last paragraph below to learn how to get rid of hemorrhoid pain permanently)

Some hemorrhoid suppositories, like Calmol do not have any drug as an active component and they just function as protectorants to coat the anal region to ease bowel movements. You can get these online via some discreet companies. As soon as you make a purchase the retailer delivers them to you in a generic package. A lot of people choose to shop online since they no longer face embarrassment of buying these across the counter.{Get a free mini course on hemorrhoids by clicking the links in the last paragraph below}

Most of the time people do not insert suppositories in the proper way to get the maximum benefits. These are some useful tips on proper insertion of anal suppositories:

– The rounded end is inserted into the anus and the flat end is held in the hand to push the suppository into the anus.

– It is advisable to warm the suppository after taking a bath or before inserting it lubricate it with little warm water. This enables the suppository to be inserted into the anal canal freely without too much friction.

– While standing, sitting or lying down suppositories can be inserted. While standing it is advisable to prop your leg up on a chair. While sitting simply sit on the toilet with your legs spread apart. You can as well insert the suppository in a lying position by lying down on one side and bending your alternate knee up close to your chest. Usually the suppository will slide into the anal canal easily.

– It is better to insert the suppositories just before going to bed as these drugs melt to turn into liquid that can be absorbed into the body. This can be a very untidy experience if one has to be walking around with liquid in ones butt.

All these being said, the use of suppositories alone will not guaranty permanent healing of hemorrhoids, for total permanent healing of hemorrhoids natural herbal products that also contain practical tips on healthy lifestyle and diet changes and that are without the usual side effects of surgery are highly recommended. You can combine these herbs and apply it to tighten the tissues that have weakened because of some cause. These herbs can provide permanent cure from hemorrhoids. The herbal remedies of hemorrhoid are really very much helpful. {Get the best herbal hemorrhoid cure in the links in the last paragraph below}

Chancellor Rishi Sunak announces UK budget 2021

Friday, March 5, 2021

Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak announced the UK’s 2021 budget on Wednesday in the House of Commons. This comes amid significant damage to the country’s economy from the COVID-19 pandemic, in which over 700 thousand people have lost their jobs, with the economy shrinking by 10%.

Sunak announced an extension of the furlough scheme, which had been paying employees who could not work due to the pandemic 80% of their wages. He said it would be extended until September. The scheme also mentioned firms would have to pay 10% of this in July, and 20% in the months of August and September as the scheme ends. It was also announced that support for self-employed people would continue, with another grant for between February and April.

Other support for workers included the minimum wage increasing to £8.91/hour from April, and an existing £20 weekly increase in Universal Credit being extended through September.

Sunak also announced some changes to taxation in the country, with corporation tax rising to 25% in April 2023. Sunak said that this would be the lowest rate in the G7, and that businesses would only be taxed if they made profits of over £250 thousand, which is only 10% of companies. Companies with profits of less than £50 thousand will continue to pay 19% corporation tax. Sunak said that income tax, national insurance, and VAT would not change in this budget with alcohol and fuel duty continuing to be frozen.

For hospitality firms, VAT will continue to be frozen at a reduced rate of five percent. The contactless payment limit will be increased from £45 to £100 this year. New freeports were also announced in locations at East Midlands Airport; Felixstowe and Harwich; Humber; Liverpool City Region; Plymouth; Solent; and Thames and Teesside. These would allow reduced customs costs, and encourages investment.

Australian company to make solar power with space technology

Tuesday, August 15, 2006

Solar Systems Pty Ltd, Hawthorn, Victoria, have announced an agreement with Boeing Australia Ltd for supply of Spectrolab solar cells. The agreement will result in the supply of 500,000 cells, capable of generating 11MW of electricity.

Spectrolab produces multi-junction solar cells, originally designed for powering satellites. The solar cells are three times more efficient than the cells used in typical domestic solar panels, and are capable of converting light energy to electrical energy with up to 34% efficiency according to NREL’s National Centre for Photovoltaics. Solar Systems utilise Spectrolab’s multi-junction solar cells to increase the output of their dish systems.

Solar Systems have already trialed the cells in one of their CS500 concentrating solar dishes installed at a solar power station in Hermannsburg, Central Australia, established to reduce the consumption of diesel in the remote community. Simply replacing the existing cells with the Spectrolab multi-junction solar cells increased output from 24kW to 34kW.

Solar Systems is planning to use the technology in a solar power station it will build in northern Victoria, with a capacity of 154MW.
