‘Invest in solar water heaters’

first_img18 April 2008Switching from conventional geysers to solar water heaters is not only a response to the current energy crisis affecting South Africa, but also a sustainable long-term investment for residents, says Minerals and Energy Minister Buyelwa Sonjica.“The use of solar energy, which is a renewable energy source, will assist us in reducing the load of pressure on the national electricity grid while increasing energy supply mix as a renewable source of energy,” Sonjica said at the launch of the kwaNokuthula Solar Water Project in Riversdale in the Western Cape on Thursday.Solar water heating is one of the key energy response measures highlighted in the government’s national electricity response plan that was launched in January.Sonjica said that through the national response plan, the government had acknowledged the importance of solar energy and solar water heating not only as a means of demand side management but also as an energy efficiency measure.In addition, the development of solar industry in the country had important economic and job creation potential.“It is important that we develop this project to ensure increased job creation through solar water heating as we need to ensure that these appliances are in the long run manufactured and produced locally,” she said. “This will also create sustainable jobs throughout the value chain and reduce the cost of these technologies.”During the launch, Sonjica acknowledged the Western Cape provincial government for establishing a solar water heating training academy, which is expected to take its first batch of 240 trainees soon.Energy efficiency exhibitionOn Wednesday, the Gauteng Department of Local Government also announced plans to host a three-day Energy Efficiency Product and Information Exhibition as part of the national campaign to save electricity.The exhibition, scheduled to take place from 6 to 8 June at the Nasrec Expo Centre to the south of Johannesburg, will bring together a range of products that households, business, institutions and general public can use in order to contribute to the national energy saving campaign.“Our objective is that by the end of this year we will have an extensive energy efficiency network reaching out to every ward, resident, institution, businesses and non-government organisation,” said Provincial Local Government Minister Qedani Mahlangu.The display is aimed at providing a platform for all services providers of energy efficient products such as solar powered roofing insulation system, energy saving light bulbs, ripple control geysers to geyser blankets to showcase and explain their products to the public.Mahlangu said the exhibition would incorporate four briefing sessions aimed at ensuring that Gauteng residents became active in energy efficiency campaigns, with every sector of the province being organised to play a meaningful role.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

SKA South Africa unveils ‘First Light’ image from outer space

first_imgCD AndersonThe Square Kilometre Array (SKA) radio telescope project, near the town of Carnarvon in the remote Northern Cape, revealed the first image of space taken using the project’s first phase of 16 fully-functioning MeerKAT receptor units.Named ‘First Light’, the image was presented at an onsite function held on 16 July 2016.SKA SOUTH AFRICA – Google Search https://t.co/rkUO4fplxv pic.twitter.com/PZ5Z7402uv— Sonia (@S_o_n_i_a) July 9, 2016The presentation formed part of a tour of the SKA facilities by other ministers and 11 government deputy ministers, invited by Science and Technology Minister Naledi Pandor.Among the dignitaries was Ebrahim Patel, minister of economic development and member of the Presidential Infrastructure Co-ordinating Commission (PICC).Infrastructure investment is a key priority of the National Development Plan and the New Growth Path, and the SKA project is one of 18 strategic infrastructure projects identified by the PICC as a priority for national economic growth.The aim of the tour, said Pandor, was to create project ambassadors in the government to spread the message of SKA’s ground-breaking work in the field of astro-science that aided South Africa’s reputation as a global scientific player, as well as to highlight the positive impact of the project on the people of Carnarvon.Min Pandor and Dep Minister during the visit to the SKA tdy, NCape pic.twitter.com/8DfnhprdcU— tommy makhode (@tommymakhode) July 16, 2016‘First Light’SKA’s chief scientist, Dr Fernando Camilo, unveiled the ‘First Light’ image during the ministers’ visit, beginning with some background about how radio wave technology worked and how it was evolving as SKA itself advanced.Highlighting the differences between images taken with a conventional visual telescope – one in Chile – and a smaller radio telescope array in the United States, Camilo said the image captured by the 16-unit array – a quarter of its prospective capacity – was much clearer and lot more detailed than anything captured before. It revealed over 1 300 galaxies in a tiny corner of the universe where only 70 were known before.A particular highlight of the image shows what is known as a Fanaroff-Riley Class 2 (FR2) object: a massive black hole in the distant universe. In the image, matter can be seen falling into the black hole and producing the bright dot at the centre. The FR2 object launches jets of powerful electrons moving at close to the speed of light, emitting radio waves that are then detected with the array. (Refer to the images in the above tweet)Camilo called the SKA array, as it is now, operating on a quarter of its potential, a “remarkable image machine”. These latest image developments were “beautiful and far better than we could have expected”. Once the full array of 64 MeerKATs was completed, the possibilities for uncovering clearer and more noteworthy cosmic events was a very exciting prospect.Global infrastructure for the worldEarlier today, @dstgovza Minister Naledi #Pandor commissioned 16 dishes of the 64-dish MeerKAT completed so far #SKA pic.twitter.com/sLr1XDv80P— SA Gov News (@SAgovnews) July 16, 2016In her keynote address, Pandor, a passionate advocate of SKA, noted “the dedicated work of hundreds of engineers, scientists, managers and other staff, and South African and international industrial partners, as well as the support of the government and people of South Africa for more than a decade”.The project would turn innovation and development activities into real economic benefits for the people of the area and reputation of the country. Africa’s role in the global science community was vital and very much assured, she said. “We are building a global infrastructure for the world.”What is SKA?The Square Kilometre Array South Africa is a radio telescope project made up of a series of receptor dishes called MeerKATs that collect sensitive radio wave frequencies from outer space, detecting objects millions, even billions of light years away from Earth. The SKA facility then processes the huge amounts of data gathered from these radio waves to formulate images of the objects – including the birth of stars and the forming of new galaxies.Scientists use the information and images gathered by SKA telescopes to better understand how the universe evolved and continues to change.South Africa hosts the bulk of the SKA project, with investments by the government and private research partners totalling more than R3-billion ($205m).#MeerKAT #SKA #FirstLight(Infographic courtesy SKA Africa @SKA_Africa) pic.twitter.com/gSzqwzpXXe— CD Anderson (@bizarrojerri) July 18, 2016Currently the South African SKA site has 16 fully-functioning MeerKAT dishes, with the full array of 64 receptors expected to be completed by the end of 2017. This will make it part of the world’s most powerful radio telescope system.Set to be completed by 2020, the entire SKA system of 3 000 dishes in locations around the world, including in Australia, South America and the UK, will give astronomy, physics and a host of other sciences an almost limitless amount of data with which to advance human understanding of the universe.The South African section of the project alone has more than 500 global scientific groupsin line to use the Northern Cape array for research and discovery work over the next five years, bringing in much science tourism revenue.“What this will do is bring to South African and world astronomers the most astonishing and profoundly powerful instrument ever used before in radio astronomy,” SKA South Africa Project director Rob Adam said at the visit on Saturday.SouthAfrica.info reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SouthAfrica.info materiallast_img read more

Responding to a boring market

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Market Commentary for 11/24/15The market has been incredibly boring. There are no bullish stories to report, which is frustrating to unpriced farmers. The only bright spot to low prices has been an uptick in export market potential. This could help demand build slowly.Lack of farmer selling is strengthening the basis market and causing spreads between futures months to narrow. The combination between the two may lead to a price rebound eventually.Market ActionsOptionsThe following are several options I placed in the last year:On 11/25/14, I bought 3 – $3.80 Dec puts (right to sell) for 20 cents each.  They expired last Friday.On 11/25/14 I sold a $4.70 call (right to buy) for 19 cents.On 1/7/15 I sold another 4.50 call (right to buy) for nearly 30 centsOn 7/7/15 I sold another 4.50 call (right to buy) for 19 cents.On 7/30/15 fearing a rally in futures I bought all of the calls back for around 4-6 cents.My final cost to own all the puts was 5 cents.  Meaning my $3.80 puts are really now $3.75 Dec futures sales.  These sales were intended for the 2016 crop, but with increased production this year, I’ll be using these sales for the surplus 2015 grain we harvested.I could have just collected the premium on the puts, and not converted the puts to sales.  However, then I miss out on the opportunity to collect the 18 cents carry on these sales (described below).  So a $3.75 sale and an 18 cent carry = $3.93 futures level.  While I certainly hope to make sales above that value for 2016 I’m not positive I will get that chance until maybe summer, so I thought it more prudent to take the guaranteed price now as opposed to waiting and hoping.Collecting the CarryFor years I have been telling farmers to work the carry and basis to get bigger premiums and profits in their grain marketing strategy.  Many farmers don’t understand how to “collect the carry”.This past week I collected the carry on my 2015 corn crop. What does this mean?In general, the market needs someone to hold the grain until its needed later in the year.  This “premium” is market carry, where the deferred months are trading at values higher than the nearby contracts. In other words those who store grain get paid for it. This is how your local grain elevator or ethanol plant makes some of their money.As I have shared, I’m 100% priced on the CBOT for my 2015 corn crop.  All of my sales were in the Dec futures. To collect market carry, I had to BUY my Dec futures back, and then SELL deferred contracts at the same time.  I chose the July 2016 futures, which was a $.185 premium to the Dec. Note, this doesn’t change the price I originally sold the contracts at. It merely adds carry profits to my grain I have stored.Why did I choose the July futures?– I wanted to get the most money I could as I intend to have my grain basis set, moved and marketed before July 1st of 2016.– Each time I have to “roll” my futures from one contract to another it costs me $.01/bu commission.  So by rolling to July instead of March or May, my commissions will be the lowest possible.When does this trade have to happen?I could have captured the carry anytime throughout the year, until Nov 30th.  The spread is actually traded on the CBOT.  Usually the widest point for the spread is during or at the end of harvest.  This year as seen in the graph below the spread was at its widest during planting season (black line).  This was likely a result of reduced yield in the eastern corn belt and a general lack of farmer selling at harvest.The carry premium I received for 2015, while lower than the last two years, is still above the cost of my operating note and thus a fair return (2% above cost) on my investment.  Farmers who aren’t borrowing money can view this as a guaranteed income stream of nearly 7% APR for 8 months of storage.2016 Corn CropI had about 22% of my 2016’s anticipated production priced against Dec 2015 futures with an average price of $4.40 futures.  I need to move these contracts forward.I could move them to Dec 2016 futures, but the spread between the July ’16 and Dec ’16 corn boards doesn’t seem wide enough, given the anticipated carryout next summer.  I have decided to instead leave opportunity (and some risk) open in the July ‘16/Dec ‘16 corn spread.  My upside potential is limited to about 10 cents, and my downside risk (while technically unlimited), is not likely greater than 10 cents with the information I have at this time.  This trade is not for everyone, but I understand my risks going into it.Summary I analyze trades every day that squeeze every penny out of the market, so this all comes easily to me.  But, while this type of trading may seem complicated initially, it essentially lowers farmers’ risk while still allowing upside potential in spite of market fluctuations.  Many farmers wait for prices to rally and then rush out to sell when they think prices have hit the high point.  Unfortunately, these farmers don’t realize how much more risk this way of selling grain is, versus a constant upside selling strategy combined with market carry. The market doesn’t always behave like people think it will, so I am always looking for ways to reduce and control my risk.Understanding how the carry in the corn market works can provide upside potential with limited risk.  When combined with options and futures to place protections and basis appreciation opportunities a farmer’s marketing plan can provide profitable situations in otherwise unprofitable years.POSITION – CORN20152016Corn Sold100%22%CBOT Price$4.58$4.50 estMarket Carry$0.18$.30 estBasis on Farm($.20) est($.20) estOptions & spread profits––Cash Price$4.56$4.60 est Jon grew up raising corn and soybeans on a farm near Beatrice, NE.

For Make-A-Wish® recipient, Jared, he and his family would often pick up geocache finds between home and the hospital. His early teenage years were often spent in hospitals from Aberdeen, South Dakota to Sioux Falls, South Dakota to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. He logged smileys all around the three medical centers.He says, “When I was in the hospital I would look on the website. I would look for trackables and take them to geocaches back home with me.”  Jared123, as he’s known in the geocaching community, endured three major surgeries for a life-altering digestive issue. Through traveling to treatment, he and his family logged hundreds of miles. They tapped into geocaching to break the tension between medical procedures.Jared discovered he had been chosen for  Make-A-Wish. Make-A-Wish grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories. Jared thought about where he could go and what he could do. Many children decide to take a trip to Disneyland or spend time with their family on a vacation to Hawaii.Jared (center) with his family and Make-A-Wish volunteersJared was born in the Seattle area, and when he learned that Geocaching HQ was located in Seattle, he made his choice.Make-A-Wish organized the visit and contacted local geocachers. An event called Jared From SD Wishes for your Presence was planned to welcome him to the Northwest. And Jared wanted to meet, and geocache with, one of the most creative geocache hiders on the West Coast of the U.S: goblindust.Geocachers from several counties away showed up to greet their fellow geocacher. Jared says, “I couldn’t’ really believe how many people came there. There were 85-90 people who attended. There were a whole bunch of volunteers and businesses who donated for the event.”Jared then took to the geocaching trail, claiming, The SUPER Pages as his favorite geocache of the trip and perhaps of all time. He says, “I found some of the most unique geocaches ever, or even in the world.” To offer you some proof, geocacher goblindust has a creative geocache found in this video (we just won’t tell you which one).Jared then visited Geocaching HQ, meeting with the founders of Geocaching.com and having lunch with the people who power the experience. He also led his dad to log his first geocache—the giant treasure chest in the lobby of Geocaching HQ.Jared and his dad at Geocaching HQYou can watch Jared’s tour of Geocaching HQ in this 6 second Vine video. Jared did what any geocache might do when they leave Geocaching HQ, he went geocaching some more.Geocachers who logged the event say, “Thanks to all who put this together, the vendors who donated, and to Jared for inviting us to help make his wish!!! It was a pleasure meeting you and your parents! Enjoy your visit, and hope you enjoy all the fun caches we have to offer! Goblindust…you’re a rockstar!

Press pool dry. pic.twitter.com/crYTdjelG5— Eamon Javers (@EamonJavers) July 8, 2019 The situation was serious, but it being DC, jokes, of course, were inevitable. That happens a lot downtown, and it is actually fine, to a point. Remember: This was a swamp, and you are really in what was the Potomac’s marshy banks all the way up to Capitol Hill. And once in a while nature reminds you of it.— Tᴏm Mᴏᴏʀᴇ (@PaperMissiles) July 8, 2019 The National Archives Building in Washington, DC, is closed today due to electrical outages. The Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights–along with all of the permanently valuable records stored in the building–are safe and not in any danger. pic.twitter.com/aGWOie0BjC— US National Archives (@USNatArchives) July 8, 2019 I spent all weekend being like “Will it just fucking rain already?” and now I have to go gather up animals by twos.— Drew Magary (@drewmagary) July 8, 2019 Unnerving photos and video shared to social media showed just how deep the water really was. The weather led to some frightening images of water flooding elevators, Metro stations and parking lots.The White House didn’t go untouched. Several journalists posted photos of water leaking into the press space in the White House basement, which naturally led to plenty of jokes about presidential leaks and swamp-draining. Tags The Washington, DC, area on Monday was deluged with heavy rain, which turned streets into rivers and led to closed roads and stranded drivers. Water also seeped into the White House basement. The National Weather Service declared a flash flood emergency, and CBS News reports that “the storm dumped about 6.3 inches of rain near Frederick, Maryland, about 4.5 inches near Arlington, Virginia, and about 3.4 inches at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in a two-hour period.”The flooding was deep in the streets outside the National Archives building, which had to close Monday. The site’s official Twitter account said the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, Bill of Rights and other valuable records stored there were not in danger. Randomlast_img read more
