Geoff Duncan On Healing Republican Party   Millions of metro Atlantans weathered this week’s storm, and so did thousands more from out of town.The International Production and Processing Expo, which hosts egg and poultry producers from all over the world, expected 28,000 visitors this week.Even with the storm, 24,000 managed to get to Atlanta before the storm hit according to the event’s general manager, Charles Oletine.He says the show went off without a hitch thanks in large part to the staff at the Georgia World Congress Center.  “A lot of the support staff, down here at the GWCC, a lot of them ended up spending the night here,” said Olentine. “And, you know, there was a smaller staff. But they all pitched in, and they got the job done.”Olentine says this is the 66th year the Expo has been held in Atlanta, and some kind of winter weather event seems to hit the Expo every decade or so.

EDF selects Flamanville site for new EPR nuclear facility

first_imgNuclearReactors EDF selects Flamanville site for new EPR nuclear facility Facebook Suitors for halted Bellefonte nuclear project ask TVA to consider climate in reviving sale Optimizing Plant Performance: The April POWERGEN+ series activates today TAGSEDF Twitter With a capacity of around 1600 MW, greater availability and easy maintenance, Aveva claims that the EPR will cut kWh production costs by 10 per cent compared to current reactors. The EPR is the only third generation reactor under construction today. The EPR is the only reactor in the world in which in the unlikely event of a severe core meltdown would have no consequences on the area around the plant. The EPR is a pressurized water reactor which uses nuclear fuel to the full to generate a maximum of energy, while producing less waste. Linkedin Nuclear power group Framatome ANP will supply the EPR technology, which marks the second sales success for this new reactor generation, following an order from TVO in Finland in December 2003. Linkedin Facebookcenter_img 10.22.2004 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The EPR was developed by Framatome and Siemens whose nuclear activities merged in January 2001 to form Framatome ANP, an Areva and Siemens company The EPR project is to be carried out over a five-year period starting in 2007. According to Pierre Gadonneix, chairman of EDF, “Launching the EPR will contribute to ensuring Europe’s energy independence in the coming decades. Eventually, its role will be to permit EDF to renew its generation plant and to do so in a competitive way. It will strengthen EDF’s technological edge and will be a technological showcase for export markets. This investment choice expresses EDF’s goal to maintain its position as the world’s leading producer of nuclear-based electricity.” By chloecox – Previous articleUK jobs boost from windpower investmentNext articleAfrican five to agree joint power project chloecox Twitter 22 October 2004 – The board of Electricité de France (EDF) has agreed to build a forerunner European Pressurized Water Reactor (EPR ) nuclear reactor at Flamanville in Northern France.

Amazon Studios Acquires Rights To Merle Haggard Biopic Project, Sam Rockwell Reportedly Attached To Star

first_imgProduction on film and television projects may still be on pause thanks to COVID-19, but that hasn’t stopped Amazon Studios from acquiring the rights for a biopic project focusing on late outlaw country legend Merle Haggard, who died on his 79th birthday back in April 2016. According to a report shared by Deadline on Tuesday, Oscar-winning actor Sam Rockwell has signed on to play Haggard, while Robin Bissell will direct and co-write film’s script alongside Merle’s widow, Theresa Haggard.The biopic will be based on Haggard’s 1981 memoir, Sing Me Back Home, which told the story of his humble beginnings in California in the years following the Great Depression and his journey through country music beginning in the early 1960s. Haggard’s career led him to become a country-western icon after gaining national fame for his 1969 hit, “Okie From Muskogee”. The song came at the height of the Vietnam War era, although the attention frustrated Haggard as he thought the counterculture movement did not understand the true nature of war. Haggard’s 1968 single, “Mama Tried”, became a live favorite of the Grateful Dead, who covered the high-energy country tune throughout their career.Related: Watch Bob Weir Perform “Mama Tried” In Tribute To Merle Haggard At The Ryman AuditoriumRockwell will reportedly do all of his own singing for the film, which will pick up during the years when Haggard was an inmate at San Quentin State Prison, where he watched the first prison performance from Johnny Cash. Along with telling the story of his career beginnings through the 1960s, the film will also focus on Merle’s complicated love affair with his singing partner and future wife Bonnie Owens.The untitled film project currently has no official release date, and it will be tough to gauge when film production will be able to resume in cities like Los Angeles where businesses are under threat of closing again due to COVID-19. Haggard was remembered by many following his death in 2016, including longtime colleagues and friends like Willie Nelson.[H/T Deadline]last_img read more

KPHL to continue partnership with PNGFA

first_imgSoccer BY KEVIN TEME The Kumul Petroleum Holdings Limited will continue its partnership with the PNG Football Association for another year. The revelations were made during the KPHL National Soccer League grand final between Toti City and MRDC Hekari United Football Club at the Sir John Guise Stadium on Saturday evening. “As a national oil company, we are proud and happy to partner with the PNGFA through the National Soccer League as it is played right throughout the four regions of the country,” KPHL managing director Wapu Sonk said during the presentation ceremony. Sonk said KPHL will continue to partner with soccer in PNG as it is spreads right across the country. It was fitting to partner with soccer to share the wealth of the oil company throughout the region. PNGFA president John Kapi Natto thanked Sonk and his staff for the great support given to football in PNG. “Without Kumul Petroleum Holding’s support, the NSL would not have come this far. In fact, NSL would have been dead if KPHL didn’t step in to support this year. I am humbled and thankful for the kind gesture KPHL has given to soccer in the country and we look forward to that partnership in the years to come,” Kapi Natto said. He also thanked the Kumul Telikom PNG Ltd for the live coverage of the NSL grand final. “I know people had doubts that this concept would never work. It was our dream to spread football right across the country and with the support of KPHL, we were able to deliver and today marks the special day with the finals fulfilling what we’ve planned and wanted to do for soccer in the country,” Kapi Natto said. “With KPHL support and the partnership, I believe football will grow big and touched all corners of this country. Critics have been proven wrong and we’ve delivered a successful season today as witnessed by thousands that have come to watch the grand final between Toti City FC and Hekari United FC.”last_img read more
