Taiwanese cell makers fear duties amid booming demandCell and wafer manufacturers in Taiwan are reporting record figures. But the industry is reportedly concerned about moves by Chinese module makers to represent it in talks with the U.S. authorities. February 7, 2014 Max Hall Finance Legal Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share There were conflicting signals from Taiwan today about the potential effect of U.S. anti dumping (AD) and anti subsidy counteraviling duties (CVD) being applied to Taiwanese-made solar cells. A week ahead of the date when the U.S. Department of Commerce and International Trade Commission (ITC) expect to announce whether they have found evidence of products featuring Taiwanese cells harming U.S. solar companies, manufacturers in Taipei have reported booming demand. Four of the country’s biggest solar manufacturers say demand has lifted the price of the cells they make and factories are running at capacity, according to a report in today’s Taipei Times. But a report on the Focus Taiwan News Channel website today, claims manufacturers are worried about the impact of U.S. duties and are also unhappy with an attempt by two Chinese module manufacturers to represent them in the Taiwan-U.S. investigations. Focus Taiwan says Sam Hung, head of the Taiwanese Photovoltaic Industry Association has asked the government’s Bureau of Trade to intervene after Chinese module manufacturers Yingli Solar and Hanwha SolarOne whom presumably use Taiwanese-made cells in their products reportedly asked the U.S. Department of Commerce to let them represent Taiwanese cell-makers in the dispute. Taiwan Focus says that request is due to be decided by February 21, provided that, as expected, the U.S. authorities announce next Friday evidence of harmful dumping and subsidies has been found. Focus Taiwan says cell manufacturers are unhappy with this move and fear they will not be heard by the investigating U.S. authorities and have asked the government via the industry association to intervene. Taiwanese cells cost more than global average Referring to unnamed ‘industry sources,’ Focus Taiwan claims cells made in the country cost 8% more than the global average price and 11% more than cells made across the Taiwanese Strait. The latest trade figures released by Taiwan’s solar manufacturers illustrate just why U.S. duties would be so unwelcome. According to a report in today’s Taipei Times, three of the country’s major cell makers, as well as wafer manufacturer Green Energy Technology (GET), cannot make and ship their products fast enough. The Times said Neo Solar Power Corp, reportedly Taiwan’s biggest cell maker, yesterday announced its highest monthly revenue for almost three years had been recorded last month. January revenue reached NT$2.42 billion (US$79.9 million), up from NT$2.41 billion in December and NT$820 million in January 2013. According to the Times report, fellow cell makers E-Ton Solar Tech Co with January revenue of NT$406 million, up from NT$396 million in December and NT$123 million, year-on-year; and Gintech Energy Corp with NT$1.36 billion in January a slight monthly dip but up 55% year-on-year are also enjoying rapid growth in orders. The Times added wafer maker GET had posted January revenues of NT$1.34 billion, a 65% rise on the NT$812 million seen in January 2013. The U.S. Commerce Department and ITC are considering whether to extend the AD and CVD duties applied to Chinese-made solar products to include those featuring solar cells manufactured in Taiwan after the U.S. subsidiary of German manufacturer SolarWorld claimed Chinese companies had shifted cell manufacturing to Taiwan as a loophole to avoid the U.S. import duties.Popular content Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

Charlie Rice, George Taylor, Andrew Turner, Deago Bailey and Tom Wilstead (pictured left to right, above) were all named in head coach Jonathan Pendlebury’s squad for the four-day camp, which ran from February 20th-23rd.England U18s will play two standalone fixtures against Scotland at Hawick RFC (Sunday, March 15th, 2pm KO) and France in Bourges (Sunday, March 22nd, 4pm KO local time), before April’s U18 Six Nations Festival in France.The U18 Six Nations Festival is competed by England, France, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Italy with each nation playing three fixtures over two weeks.The squad are led by new head coach Jonathan Pendlebury, who is assisted by Darlington Mowden Park coach Mark Luffman (forwards) and Harlequins academy coach Mark Mapletoft (backs) for the season.Former England international Mapletoft has previous experience of coaching in the player pathway having been England U20s coach and also held a senior role at Harlequins until 2019. Luffman has coached in the pathway since 2014 – and continues his role with England U18s.Players have been selected by pathway staff based on their performances in the U18 academy league, as well as school competitions and also in consultation with academy managers from the 14 regional academies. The camp will also allow coaches to discuss playing principles and themes with the squad ahead of the two standalone fixtures, as well as the U18 Six Nations Festival. Players will be encouraged to explore the boundaries of their game during training.In addition, six players will be invited into camp as part of the wider squad as a way to support their future development.Jonathan Pendlebury said: “My first priority is to get to know these players as well as I can. The players are the pathway.”As a pathway management team we want to support the players in their development towards being full time senior academy players and future internationals as well as help them fulfil their potential as senior players in the game.”The sessions will be a step up from the last 10 weeks of U18 academy league fixtures that they have participated in. I expect the players to ‘explore boundaries’ which could be a way of playing or executing a skill or tactic and look to learn something from each session and particularly each game that may support their progression in the game.”We will explore different themes in attack, defence and transition and how we execute or look to utilise these will be a main theme for the U18 group going forwards.”
6 February 2009French-born tennis star Jo-Wilfried Tsonga left no doubt that African blood runs through his veins when he paid a visit to the sprawling township of Soweto outside Johannesburg on Wednesday.Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis, also in Johannesburg for the South African Tennis Open, took time off to get a taste of what it would have felt like living under apartheid.Tsonga, who lies seventh in the ATP world rankings and is in Johannesburg for the South African Tennis Open, held a coaching clinic at the Arthur Ashe Tennis Centre in White City, Jabavu.At the end of the clinic, youngsters from Jabavu and neighbouring areas broke out in song in appreciation for Tsonga’s efforts, and moments later the broad-smiling Muhammad Ali look-alike tennis pro started dancing, even throwing in the odd Ali-shuffle in his routine.African heritageTsonga, whose father was born in Pointe Noire, Congo, has always been proud of his African heritage, and prior to his arrival in Johannesburg had been at pains to make the point that he has long had an emotional attachment to the continent.He was clearly at home among the children, many of whom did not know that he is one of the world’s top tennis players. And it seemed Tsonga’s enjoyment was at its greatest when he was putting the smallest toddlers through their paces with basic drills.“As a kid I never had a chance to go to clinics which were conducted by the world’s top players,” Tsonga said. “It’s really great for them, although I think many of them do not know the players here.‘They’ve got to be able to dream about it’“But I would like them to go home and dream about becoming professional tennis players one day. They’ve got to be able to dream about it, because that could be the start of great things for them.”Tsonga was accompanied by South African Davis Cup players Jeff Coetzee and Wesley Moodie, who worked with the older children on adjacent courts. The clinic was organised by the South African Tennis Association along with the ATP World Tour.Baghdatis at the Apartheid MuseumCypriot Marcos Baghdatis, meanwhile, took time off from the tennis to get a taste of how it felt living in the former apartheid South Africa.Baghdatis, his coach Oliver Sounes and agent Jean-Phillipe Bernard were all labelled either “white” or “non-white” and required to enter Johannesburg’s Apartheid Museum through separate doorways.“It’s weird, you know, knowing that they separated people for everything,” Baghdatis said. “They had different toilets, black people had toilets, white people had other toilets, but it was not only that, it was everything – beaches, houses, taxi queues, entrances, bus stops – and mainly the black people suffered a lot.“I also watched some videos which showed how they were treated, and … it hurt a lot to see that,” said Baghdatis, clearly moved by the experience.Understanding MandelaThe South African Tennis Open eighth seed was taken through a visual and physical explanation of the life of Nelson Mandala, after which he said: “I can understand now why he is a hero to so many people.”Taking the museum’s “walk of freedom”, Baghdatis chose a series of coloured sticks – red for loyalty, white for courage, green for forgiveness – to represent characteristics of Mandela’s life as he saw it.The tour finished with Baghdatis signing the museum’s visitor book – the same book Mandela signed when the museum opened in 2001.“It’s a bit shocking when you’re in there and watching that,” Baghdatis said afterwards. “But it’s also nice to see because it is a small wakeup call – and it does wake you up, you see life a bit differently and people a bit differently.”SAinfo reporter.

Photo: Steve Creedy Qantas has started the 2020 financial year with a record first-quarter revenue but continues to see weak domestic demand and faces some international headwinds.The airline said in a trading update that total group revenue rose 1.8 percent to a record $A4.56 billion while unit revenue was up 2.1 percent compared to the same quarter in 2018..But group domestic unit revenue fell by 0.9 percent due to “mixed market conditions” and Jetstar’s unit revenue was down 2.6 percent because of weakening demand in the price-sensitive leisure market.Strengthening resources industry traffic helped offset weaker demand in other corporate sectors such as financial services and telecommunications but overall corporate travel demand was flat, the update said.Small business demand also slowed, although Qantas said its share of both business markets increased, and premium leisure demand remained steady.READ: VIRGIN poised to start japan services after draft Tokyo decision.Jetstar’s 2.6 percent fall in unit revenue accounted for most of the group’s domestic decline and was offset by higher load factors that supported growth in ancillary revenues.Driving the increase in group unit revenue was a 4.4 percent increase for the group’s international operations led by reduced capacity from competitors as well as network and fleet changes in Qantas International.Qantas International reduced its own capacity by 2.5 percent and saw unit revenue rise by more than 6 percent.Jetstar International’s revenue and capacity also grew in the quarter with a strong demand on leisure routes to Asia offsetting weakness in markets impacted by the strong US dollar.A bright spot for the group remained Qantas Loyalty which “continued to see strong revenue growth in line with expectations” and expects to announce new growth opportunities shortly.“The Group continues to perform well, with strength in key parts of our portfolio helping to offset softness in other areas,” Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce said.“Qantas International has seen significant upside from competitor capacity contracting more than anticipated, which is expected to continue for at least the remainder of the first half.”Joyce said the slower revenue environment would mean a strong focus on cost reduction “to make sure we keep delivering on our transformation targets.””Part of this is about taking opportunities to reduce complexity and constantly improving how efficiently we manage our business,” he added.Among the headwinds facing the group are the protests in Hong Kong, which will wipe $A25m off the first-half profit and prompting capacity adjustments.Other problems include the impact of the US-China trade war on freight, expected to cut full-year profit by $A25-30m, and foreign exchange expenses expected to increase non-fuel costs by $A25m in the first half.The group has fully hedged its fuel for the 2020 financial year, including the ability to benefit from significant price falls, and expects its first-half fuel bill to increase $A29m to $A3.98 billion. A worst-case scenario would see fuel costs rise to $A4.05 billionQantas will continue to keep a tight rein on capacity with group increases expected to be between 0.5 and 1 percent in the first half.“Domestically, published competitor capacity is set to increase despite the weakness in the market,’’ Joyce said.“The Qantas Group will maintain its strategic position in all parts of the market and therefore our total domestic capacity is expected to grow by up to 1 percent in the second half.”

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppMONTEGO BAY, June 24 (JIS): Some US$9 million is expected to be injected into the economy of Montego Bay, St. James, during the staging of Reggae Sumfest 2015, at the Catherine Hall Entertainment Centre, in the city, from July 12 to 18.Speaking to JIS News during the Montego Bay launch of the festival, at the IberoStar Resort in Rose Hall, St. James, on June 23, Chairman of Summerfest Productions Limited, the promoters of Reggae Sumfest, Robert Russell, said all is in place for the staging of the 23rd renewal of the event, dubbed “the Greatest Reggae Show on Earth.”Mr. Russell said based on figures from the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB), 6,000 visitors come to the island for the festival each year, and this year should be no exception.“The Tourist Board estimates that they spend about US$1,500 per person, and that equates to about US$9 million injected into the economy of Montego Bay and Jamaica,” he noted.Mr. Russell pointed out that the festival has become a staple in the entertainment industry and continues to attract visitors from every continent on the globe.“You cannot find a better event, a better show to come and spend a week and Montego Bay is just a part of that magic. It’s not just reggae, it’s not just Sumfest, it’s also Montego Bay and Jamaica as a destination,” he said.Mr. Russell said the festival is not only assisting to develop the music industry, but also the career of artistes.“Every year you have talent scouts and management teams and recording labels that come to Sumfest to see who is new and what is on the scene in terms of music. A number of artistes started on the Sumfest scene. All the big names in reggae music literally started on the Sumfest scene,” he added.Meanwhile, Western Regional Director of the JTB, Janice Allen, said the festival has always received the full endorsement of the JTB and the agency is back on board as a sponsor this year.“The Jamaica Tourist Board is always supportive of this kind of event, which attracts a substantial audience and draws attention to our culture, and importantly to attract significant members of the media. In other words, events like Reggae Sumfest enable us to market a more diverse product to the world,” she said.Ms. Allen pointed out that Reggae Sumfest also forms part of the Ministry of Tourism and Entertainment’s ‘90 days of summer’ promotion, which was launched last year.Main attractions at this year’s show include American entertainers, Jennifer Hudson, Rappers Common, Rick Ross and Yazz as well as the major local singers, sing- jays and DJs.

Rangers midfielder Eros Grezda insists the team showed character during their 2-1 win over Hearts despite being one man down for more than 20 minutes.Rangers fell behind to an early own goal from defender Gareth McAuley but scored twice before half-time through Connor Goldson and Alfredo Morelos.Steven Gerrard’s men had to play the last 20 minutes of the game with ten men after Scott Arfield saw red for a late challenge on keeper Zdenek Zlamal.But Grezda reckons the team’s determination showed through as they battled to earn an important victory.He said, according to Evening Times: “It was a really hard game. The guys never lost belief after going 1-0 down and we came back fast. We are very happy.”Rangers is still behind Celtic: John Hartson Manuel R. Medina – September 3, 2019 According to the former Celtic player, there’s still a massive gap between his ex-club and Rangers in the Scottish Premier League.“It’s a long way to the end [of the season] but for the moment we have a lot of games and we just have to go one by one.”“We have to give maximum effort in every game and go for the win. But the end is so far.”“As I said we go for every win so we will see what will happen.”“That’s football. We lacked a bit in the first 20 minutes but after they scored we showed our best face and scored two goals and that decided it.”“We played with less players in the second half but I’m really proud of the guys that they made it.”
