SolarCity’s Silevo acquisition triggers solar stock surge

Posted On May 9 2021 by

first_imgSolarCity’s Silevo acquisition triggers solar stock surgeFollowing the news that SolarCity had purchased solar panel maker Silevo, solar panel stocks around the world enjoyed a notable surge. June 18, 2014 pv magazine Finance Legal Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share SolarCity’s apparent midas touch extended to other solar companies Tuesday – on a leasehold basis, naturally – as news of the company’s acquisition of solar panel maker Silevo reverberated positively throughout the stock market. During stock trading yesterday, SolarCity’s shares soared by 17.5% as investors appeared to universally applaud the company’s bold move to acquire the solar panel company and commit to the construction of a 1 GW manufacturing plant in Buffalo, NY. But it was not just SolarCity that enjoyed a day in the sun. Stocks for many leading solar panel makers enjoyed a noticeable fillip too, with China’s Yingli Solar enjoying a 12% share increase on the day. Similarly noteworthy share increases were recorded for Canadian Solar (7.7%), Trina Solar (5.5%), JA Solar (9.6%), ReneSola (8.2%) and JinkoSolar (6.8%). Even the larger American rivals of SolarCity, First Solar and SunPower, enjoyed the ripple-effect of investor confidence, their stock price rising 3.4% and 4.3% respectively. Speaking to pv magazine yesterday, Smart Solar consulting CEO Götz Fischbeck remarked that SolarCity’s bold acquisition was potentially risky, but added that it was generally a good sign that a U.S. company had taken up the baton and was ready to pursue module manufacturing in the country. Such boldness, particularly in the wake of the Department of Commerce’s (DOC) decision earlier in June to slap even higher trade duties on Chinese modules, has evidently curried favor with investors, and did wonders for billionaire and SolarCity co-founder Elon Musk’s bank balance – with more than 21 million shares in the company, valued today at approximately $1.36 billion, yesterday was a very good day indeed for the intrepid entrepreneur.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.

Harvard Course in Happiness Draws Students in Droves

Posted On Feb 27 2021 by

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMoreThe most popular course at Harvard this semester teaches the skill of positive thinking. 855 students signed up for a positive psychology course to learn how to create “a fulfilling and flourishing life.” Harvard is one of about a hundred campuses around the country offering courses that focus on what helps people to feel good. Positive Psychology is the empirical study of such things as positive emotions, strengths-based character, and healthy institutions. Growing piles of scientific research are promoted on the covers of magazines like Time, and leading to masters degree programs, like the one centered on the work of Dr. Martin Seligman, the founder of Positive Psychology. The University of PA offers to professionals, many of whom are working full-time, the chance to earn a pioneering graduate degree from the Ivy League university, with the Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP). International conferences on the topic are now numerous. The Fifth International Positive Psychology Summit will be held in Washington, DC on October 5- 7, 2006 and sponsored by The Gallup Organization with Toyota and Toyota University.Read more about Harvard students and their class in the Boston Globe, (If you don’t want to register for reading page 2, read it here) NPR did a story also and includes its audio/ radio file.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMorelast_img read more

Wolf Tooth Ovalizes XT M8000, Shimano 110 Road, and Race Face Cinch Fat Bike…

Posted On Jan 18 2021 by

first_imgFor Shimano, WTC will be selling rings for both the new XT M8000 96mm BCD crank as well as 110 asymmetric 4 bolt road cranks. Other than their new fitting, the rings carry all of the same features and benefits of WTC elliptical rings with their patent pending Drop-Stop tooth profile and 7075-T6 aluminum construction. Using standard shape, the rings have a 10° ovality and 112° timing after Top Dead Center. The XT M8000 elliptical will sell for $64.95 in 30, 32, and 34t while the 110 4 bolt BCD ring will be a little more at $78.95 in 38, 40, and 42t.Photos c. WTCBig news for fat bike riders is the addition of a reverse dish elliptical ring for RaceFace Cinch cranks. For a while now, fat bikers have been reversing the rings on Cinch cranks which offsets the dish towards the outside of the bike. This allows for proper chain line when running a crankset designed for a 170mm dropout bike on 190mm frame. Anyone who has pedaled the monstrous q-factor of a true 190mm (dropout) crank knows how big of deal this actually is.Now, WTC is offering an elliptical chainring that is meant for this exact use. When used with a crank meant for a 170mm fat bike, the ring provides a 75mm chainline that is ideal for 190/197mm dropout frames. Selling for $69.95, the rings will be sold in 28, 30, and 32t options with 30t shipping now.wolftoothcomponents.com If you’re a fan of the elliptical chainring, Wolf Tooth Components should have your attention. Following in the pedal strokes of a number of previous Drop-Stop elliptical rings, WTC is introducing three more designs to continue to add compatibility.MFor those that aren’t current on all of the chainring standards, there have been a number of new BCDs and bolt spacings introduced in recent years which makes the addition of new rings a necessity…last_img read more

The play is set to appear at Studio 54 beginning on September 20 with an opening scheduled for October 18.The Lifespan of a Fact will feature scenic design by Tony winner Mimi Lien (Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812), costume design by Tony winner Linda Cho (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder), lighting design by Jen Schriever (Eclipsed), sound design by Palmer Hefferan (Sugar in Our Wounds) and projection design by Lucy Mackinnon (Six Degrees of Separation).As previously announced, the three-hander will star Daniel Radcliffe, two-time Tony winner Cherry Jones and two-time Tony nominee Bobby Cannavale. The Lifespan of a Fact is written by Jeremy Kareken, David Murrell and Gordon Farrell, and based on the book written by John D’Agata and Jim Fingal. Tony nominee Leigh Silverman will direct.Framed around the true story of D’Agata’s essay What Happens There, the play follows Fingal (played by Radcliffe), who has a small job: to fact-check articles for one of the best magazines in the country. His boss (Jones) has given him a big assignment: to apply his skill to a groundbreaking piece by legendary author D’Agata (Cannavale). But now Fingal has a huge problem: D’Agata made up a lot of his article. What starts professional quickly becomes profane.The Lifespan of a Fact is scheduled to play a 16-week limited engagement through January 13, 2019.last_img read more
