The world premiere production of Will Eno’s Wakey, Wakey has extended its run. The production, which Eno also directs, will now play through March 26 at the Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center, instead of the previously announced March 19. The play officially opens on February 27.Wakey, Wakey asks some thought-provoking (if a bit vague) questions: What are we here for? Is time a friend or an enemy? Do we all eventually end up in the same place, but take different routes to get there? The piece stars two-time Emmy winner Michael Emerson (Lost) and January LaVoy (Enron on Broadway).

Rainfall across Georgia in February set a new record with a statewide average of 9.92 inches, alleviating the state’s drought conditions and recharging soil moisture just in time for the 2013 planting season.Georgia’s typical rainfall for February is about 4.5 inches, and the previous record rainfall for February was 8.73 inches, set back in 1939. The rainfall was primarily caused by a persistent stationary front draped across the central part of the state, funneling rainfall from one storm after another across the same area. Some areas in southwest Georgia received in excess of 20 inches during the month. While a few areas of the state experienced flooding, the excess rain was welcome in most parts of the state where it obliterated drought conditions. At the end of January, 82 percent of Georgia was experiencing severe drought conditions or worse. By the end of March, there was no severe drought left in Georgia. The last time Georgia experienced these kinds of river flow and soil moisture levels was in September 2010. The rain has provided a welcome reserve of soil moisture for farmers eager to start the growing season, although field work has been stymied by the wet soil conditions in many areas. Once the soil temperatures warm up and the chance of frost is past, there should be plenty of soil moisture available to allow for good germination. However, fungal diseases may be a concern, and water-breeding pests — like mosquitoes — are also likely to be more plentiful this year, as there is ample habitat for them to develop. Wet weather may delay planting by keeping soil coolTemperatures have bounced between markedly above and below normal for the past three months. Spring temperatures this year are markedly colder than last year. In some areas of the state, the temperature in March was colder than in January. The last time this happened, in Augusta for example, was 1960. The cooler temperatures have been beneficial for fruit producers who welcomed the additional chill hours. The swings in temperature are typical of a neutral pattern with no El Niño or La Niña present in the Pacific Ocean. Producers should keep in mind that in a neutral year, the chance for additional cold periods and a late frost are greater than usual. So planting should be undertaken with caution. Soil temperatures will warm up more slowly than usual with the wet conditions we have this year. Forecasts for summer temperatures continue to show an increased chance for warmer than usual conditions, but there’s no prediction as to whether the state’s wet weather will continue throughout the summer.
The University of Georgia Forage Team updated the grazing paddocks on the university’s Black Shank Farm in Tifton, Georgia. In an effort to share the most up-to-date containment options available, the team hosted a Fencing Field Day.The field day, held on Wednesday, Feb. 28, was part of the Better Grazing Program kickoff on the UGA Tifton campus. The field day, and future events like it, allow Georgia cattlemen to see and experience UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences research in action.The grazing paddocks updates on the Black Shank Farm will improve UGA scientists’ grazing research capabilities and offer UGA Cooperative Extension specialists a site to showcase various fencing options. The 37-acre farm will ultimately be split into multiple grazing paddocks separated by different fencing and watering systems. The farm will demonstrate a variety of grazing technologies available to Georgia producers. To kickstart the Better Grazing Program, UGA Extension forage specialist Dennis Hancock, UGA Professor Emeritus John Worley, U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service state grazing specialist Philip Brown and industry representatives discussed different fencing technologies available to producers at the field day.“Depending on your production goals, there’s a different type of fence for everything you could imagine. If you have a goat, cow or horse; if you have electricity or need solar power; if you have grazing livestock, you have a need for these technologies,” said Jennifer Tucker, UGA Extension beef nutrition and forage management specialist. The right type of fence prevents animals from crossing the highway or wandering into a neighbor’s yard.Different types of woven wire fences are available depending on the size of the square in the woven wire.“Producers might want a tighter square for smaller animals than for larger animals,” Tucker said. “A cow can’t get through the same opening that a small goat can.”Through the Better Grazing Program, the UGA Beef and Forage teams offer hands-on trainings, like the UGA Extension Fencing Field Day. Tucker calls this a “show-and-tell approach” to decision-making.“A discussion-based field day benefits everyone because they can learn about all the different aspects of building fences from instructors as well as each other, while also getting their hands dirty,” Tucker said.Moderated group discussions held during the field day’s morning session focused on individual fencing components, such as available materials, selection criteria and items recommended to meet specific needs.In the afternoon, attendees experienced fence-building through participation in demonstrations that highlighted specific components of grazing infrastructure development, such as braces, gates and enclosures, offsets, and cross fencing.“We talked about everything from the standard, wooden fence post to newer technologies in fencing, like fiberglass and PVC posts, and temporary fencing systems,” Tucker said. “It was a very constructive day, and producers were able to build and learn about various types of fences. That’s what this field day was designed to do.”UGA experts also learn at field days by listening to farmers discuss their farming operations.“Through field days like today, where I listen in on a variety of discussions, I often learn that there are easier and harder ways of doing simple tasks throughout the whole fence-building process,” she said. “For example, I would’ve never learned that staples come in left- and right-handed versions. Fencing Field Day introduces producers to different technologies. People like me can learn, or relearn, something new in their field.”The Georgia Agricultural Commodity Commission for Beef supports this project.

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Greentech Media:NV Energy announced Thursday it has contracted for more than 1 gigawatt of new solar energy and 100 megawatts of battery energy capacity, in a resource plan that’s still subject to regulatory approval and hinges on the outcome of a high-profile ballot measure.The utility signed power purchase agreements for six new solar energy projects and three related battery storage projects, selected through a competitive solicitation initiated in January of this year. All projects are expected to be complete and serving customers by the end of 2021 – if the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada approves the plan.“The six new projects position NV Energy to keep its commitment to double renewable energy by 2023 and, importantly, by diversifying our state’s electricity generation portfolio, will reduce the costs to serve customers,” said CEO Paul Caudill, in a statement.The clean energy expansion plan also represents a step forward in the company’s long-term goal of serving Nevada customers with 100 percent renewable energy, he said. NV Energy claims the direct investment in Nevada’s economy will be greater than $2 billion, and will create 1,7000 construction jobs and 80 permanent, long-term jobs.Work on the resource planning effort began shortly after Nevada’s 2017 state legislative session ended, “and demonstrates that we are navigating the uncertainties in the current market, given Question 3 on the statewide ballot,” Caudill added. Question 3, also known as the Energy Choice Initiative, would require the Nevada State Legislature to establish “an open, competitive retail electric energy market that prohibits the granting of monopolies and exclusive franchises for the generation of electricity.”Caudill noted that NV Energy has the option to not proceed with the proposed resource plan in the event Question 3 passes, in order to avoid increasing the liabilities and risks to NV Energy customers.More: NV Energy Contracts to Build More Than 1,000MW of New Solar, 100MW of Battery Storage Nevada Electric Company Goes Big on New Solar, Storage Projects
FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享PV Tech:A Western Australian renewable hydrogen facility that will be powered by 5GW of solar PV and onshore wind has secured the backing of Danish investment firm Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP).Announced in October last year, the Murchison Renewable Hydrogen Project will be constructed near the town of Kalbarri in the mid-west of Western Australia and will provide hydrogen exports to Asian markets such as Japan and South Korea. The facility is being developed by Hydrogen Renewables Australia and will feature electrolysers from German firm Siemens.It is expected the partnership with CIP will enable the facility to proceed with its planned development to assess the feasibility of producing competitive hydrogen exports.“We believe Murchison represents the best combined wind and solar resource in Australia, and the project complements our existing activities in Australia,” said Michael Hannibal, partner at CIP.When launching its Renewable Hydrogen Strategy last year, the government of Western Australia revealed its ambition to become a “significant producer, exporter and user” of green hydrogen. The plan, which noted the state’s comparative advantage due to its geographical proximity to Asia, said the value of Australia’s potential low-emissions hydrogen exports could reach AU$2.2 billion (US$1.6 billion) by 2030 and AU$5.7 billion (US$4.15 billion) by 2040.[Jules Scully]More: Australian hydrogen project featuring 5GW of renewables secures investment firm backing Danish investor CIP signs on to Western Australia green hydrogen project

Comment The former head of football’s departure was announced by Arsenal on Saturday (Picture: Getty)It was Raul Sanllehi’s decision to leave Arsenal with the club’s former head of football sensing that his influence over transfers had been greatly diminished, according to reports.The Spaniard, who was previously Barcelona’s director of football, was brought in by Ivan Gazidis in 2017 to create a structure that took control of transfers away from then manager Arsene Wenger.But less than three years later, Sanllehi has parted ways with the Gunners to redistribute the balance of power back to current head coach Mikel Arteta, who now has the final say over all incomings and outgoings. Arteta and Edu now hold the axis of power over Arsenal’s transfers (Picture: Getty)Although there have been reports that it was the decision to overpay for Nicolas Pepe that brought about Sanllehi’s exit, The Telegraph claim he walked away of his own accord.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTWhether he walked before he was pushed is a different matter, but the report says Sanllehi felt control of transfers had been taken out of his hands and put in those of Arteta and technical director Edu.The former Barca chief is also said to have become ‘disillusioned’ by the club’s decision to make 55 members of staff redundant and had warned the board against doing so.Sanllehi felt the departures of a number of important members of the recruitment and scouting teams – including Francis Cagigao, who unearthed Cesc Fabregas and Hector Bellerin – would significantly compromise the club’s ability to make signings this summer.More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

Anthony Joshua is backing fellow Brit Tyson Fury to be successful in his rematch with Deontay Wilder, claiming the Gypsy King ‘won’t get it wrong the second time.’ Fury came so close in December 2018 to upsetting the odds to become a two time world heavyweight champion, when he faced WBC champ Wilder in just his third fight after a three year layoff, in what was a controversial draw. The two men fight again in just 10 days in Las Vegas and Joshua believes that Fury will right the wrongs of the judges scorecards the second time around. “I think Fury wins. A man who nearly done it the first time won’t get it wrong the second time,” he told ‘Pep Talk UK. “That’s the only reason why. I think that he came close the first time to the point of a draw, it wasn’t like a 12-round masterclass then got battered in the 12th and that just separated it. “It was a draw, it was that close.

GARY Primo of Fruta Conquerors Football Club netted the first helmet-trick on day three of the fourth edition of the East Bank Football Association (EBFA) Under-11 League.The league is sponsored by USA-based Guyanese, Ralph Green, and continued yesterday at the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) National Training Centre, Providence, East Bank Demerara. Primo scored all four goals in his team’s 4-0 win over Eagles Football Club of Stewartville, West Coast Demerara. Conquerors rebounded in style after going down to Timehri Panthers in their first match, to blank their opponents. Primo was on target in the 1st, 7th, 13th and 23rd minutes for his team.Five of yesterday’s six matches produced positive results, the other producing a draw between defending champions Timehri Panthers Football Club and Samatta Point/Kaneville, who clawed their way back twice, thanks to a double from Emanuel Francois.Jadon Tasha, who also netted both goals for Timehri Panthers, had given them the lead in the 6th minute but their celebration was short-lived as Francois responded in like manner one minute later to level the score at 1-1. Tasha restored his side’s one-goal cushion in the 13th minute and they had looked on course for a win but Francois had other ideas as his successful free kick in the 27th minute ensured his team took an equal share of the points.Vurlon Mills Academy have consolidated their position at the top of the points table in Group A with their third win in as many matches, a hard-fought 1-0 win over a game Diamond United team. Breaking the deadlock after consistent offensive plays was Romario La Rose in the 27th minute; it was Diamond United’s first loss in the league.Grove Hi Tech took their first win via a 3-0 score line over Swan Football Club.
