The project brings together different sectors in South Wales that will be key to decarbonisation RWE is a project partner in SWIC. (Credit: RWE) RWE is pleased to be a partner in the South Wales Industrial Cluster (SWIC). The project has received a significant boost with the allocation of grant funding for South Wales from UK Research and Innovation. The funding will support the first phase of the South Wales Industrial Cluster (SWIC) Roadmap and Deployment projects which will seek to identify the best options for cost-effective decarbonisation of industry in South Wales.The project brings together different sectors in South Wales that will be key to decarbonisation and the infrastructure that will be needed, including for the development of the hydrogen economy, for large scale CO2 capture, usage and storage (CCUS) and transport as well as onsite strategic opportunities specific to each industry.The phase one Deployment project focuses on the potential to create collaborative projects in areas with a significant portion of the economic activity in South Wales: including Milford Haven with RWE’s Pembroke Power Station and Valero Energy’s Refinery, Port Talbot with Tata Steel’s integrated steelworks and Aberthaw with Tarmac’s Cement Works.SWIC comprises a diverse set of industries including power, oil refining, paper, nickel, insulation, chemicals, LNG import, coin production, general manufacturing, steel and cement.If the SWIC proceeds successfully through the various phases of the UK government’s Industrial Decarbonisation Challenge, it would stimulate significant clean growth, creating more jobs and opening up opportunities nationally and internationally for UK businesses. This first phase is a step towards securing a further share of the £131m allocated to the Industrial Decarbonisation Challenge by the UK Government’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and is a key component of the Government’s Clean Growth Strategy.Phil Cahill, RWE Generation Business Development, UK said: “We are excited to be involved in this project; it brings together industry, consultants and academics looking collectively at options to help the decarbonisation of the region. RWE’s contribution is to both support development and bring forward potential collaboration. Pembroke CCGT is at the heart of the cluster and green hydrogen can be part of the future energy mix needed to decarbonise South Wales.”Not only will the projects make a vital contribution to the UK’s journey to net zero by 2050, they have the potential to strengthen the economic resilience of Welsh industry and communities by ensuring operations in the region are sustainable for the long term. It will also support RWE’s ambition to be carbon neutral by 2040. Source: Company Press Release

Bob Weir & The Wolf Bros continued their U.S. fall tour in Philadelphia last night, following a performance in Washington, DC on Monday where the Grateful Dead-inspired trio jammed out with former Furthur guitarist John Kadlecik. The band charged on up to Philadelphia like a headlight on a northbound train for a Tuesday night gig at The Fillmore, where they provided attendees with a 17-song performance complete with a guest appearance by Joe Russo’s Almost Dead guitarist Tom Hamilton later on in the show.The first set began with Weir strapping up his electric guitar for a jam-friendly, 10-minute performance of “Cassidy”, the semi-biographical tribute to his late Beatnik friend, Neal Cassady. A selection from Bobby’s Blue Mountain solo album came next with “Gonesville”. The first set continued with a mix of non-Dead covers including renditions of Bob Dylan‘s “When I Paint My Masterpiece”, Willie Dixon‘s “Little Red Rooster”, and Rob Wasserman‘s “Easy Answers”. The band then turned back towards the Dead catalog to close out the first set with a pair of nearly 10-minute jams on “Loose Lucy” and the Weir/Barlow classic “Lost Sailor”, before ending with the latter’s customary first mate, “Saint of Circumstance”.The second set began with the band immediately welcoming Philadelphia native Tom Hamilton to play on a pair of Dead ballads including “Peggy-O” and a nearly 17-minute “Bird Song”. Both songs featured Weir and Hamilton strumming away on their acoustic guitars and trading off verses during the latter tune like the two had been doing it for years. The band then returned to trio mode and picked up the tempo (and electric guitar) for their tour debut of the Phil Lesh-penned “Passenger”.The second half of set two was filled with plenty of funk, with Weir commanding the spotlight on “The Music Never Stopped” before moving into a cover of The Temptations‘ “Shakey Ground”. The set came to an end with the band pulling out Jerry Garcia/Robert Hunter ballad “Standing on the Moon” from the Dead’s final studio album, Built To Last, followed by a classic knockout combination of “China Cat Sunflower” > “I Know You Rider”. The night’s special encore saw the band welcoming Hamilton back out onstage to send the audience home with a lovely rendition of “Ripple”.Bob Weir and Wolf Bros will continue their tour tomorrow night, Thursday, November 15th, with their first of two shows at Boston’s Boch Center. From there, the band will set their sights on New York City. You can check out a selection of fan-shot videos and stream full audience audio from Tuesday’s performance below.

Throughout history, some of the biggest names in Hollywood have taken home a prestigious Emmy® Award. Now, you can add Dell EMC Isilon to that list!The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has honored Dell EMC Isilon with a Technology & Engineering Emmy® Award for early development of HSM (hierarchical storage management) systems. This marks the first time that Dell Technologies has taken home this prestigious award.Pioneering A Storage Solution for Broadcast Challenges While speeches at awards shows can sometimes get a little lengthy, we only have one group to thank today: our customers. Although this award reflects pioneering work from our engineering team, it primarily speaks to the value Isilon provides our customers as well as our continued commitment to innovation.Given the importance of this award, I wanted to reflect on what got us to this moment in Dell EMC Isilon’s history.Back in the early 2000s, media and entertainment companies began to require large-scale shared storage to securely hold and work with proliferating media formats: server ingested serial digital interface (SDI), new digital camera formats, graphics pulls, editorial, transcodes and playout.To address that challenge, Isilon (a standalone company at the time) pioneered a network-attached storage (NAS) solution that’s allowed our customers to easily grow exponentially and tier content according to the business value. Because of the simplicity of managing a single namespace and the TCO of tiering data, Isilon enabled broadcast engineers and studio system administrators, previously focused on data wrangling and storage administration, the freedom to focus on media applications, accelerating workflows and developing business differentiating services.Tackling Today and Tomorrow’s Media and Entertainment WorkflowsSince 2003, over 2000 global organizations including broadcasters, post and VFX houses across 82 countries have invested in Dell EMC Isilon’s scale-out architecture to drive innovation in media workflows.In the last three years alone, our media and entertainment customers have deployed over 1.5 exabytes of Isilon storage for media workflows and that investment continues to grow as live, episodic and feature datasets continue their phenomenal growth.Today, media companies face a new set of challenges as content creators and distributors must determine how to take advantage of new technologies, that accelerate and simplify the creation of high-quality content in new resolutions and formats, as well as new viewing experiences for consumers, across traditional and new content distribution platforms. While at the same time, existing content needs to be digitized, archived, and stored, with proper tagging, to ensure quick retrieval and monetization. As these new challenges emerge, old ones still endure, with media organizations continuing to be under pressure to increase production quality, all while keeping costs low, and creating high returns for their owners and investors.The Foundation of Media WorkflowsDell EMC Isilon is a key member of the broader Dell Technologies media and entertainment solution portfolio. Dell’s Precision workstations and displays are designed to empower creatives, Virtualized and Cloud Enabled solutions with VMware allow media companies to consolidate, run, manage, connect, and protect all your applications, Dell Networking enabling engineering teams to significantly reduce costs and empower IP broadcast workflows, Dell EMC PowerEdge servers continue to be a foundation of render farm and media application infrastructure, Dell Boomi is simplifying application integration and automation, and so much more.Over the years, many of our customers have received Emmy® Awards, recognizing their fantastic content and compelling visual effects, developed using Isilon storage at the core of their media production workflow. We’re grateful that we can now add our name to this list as well.We look forward to receiving this award in April at the 2020 NAB Show in Las Vegas. Speaking of which, if you’ll be in Vegas this April 18-22, please stop by our booth to see firsthand how Dell Technologies media and entertainment solutions can help you simplify, accelerate and cloud-enable your workflows, plus you’ll be able to take a picture with the Emmy® Award and celebrate this honor with us!
A hip-shaking Hoop-a-Thon at the State Theater in South Bend on Friday will benefit the Girls’ Summer Club, a day camp Saint Mary’s junior Sarah Hossfeld intiated last summer, according to Annie Eaton, assistant director of assessment and education in the Office of Alcohol and Drug Education at Notre Dame.Eaton said she decided to organize a fundraiser after hearing on the news about the camp Hossfeld started at St. Margaret’s House, a day center for women. The idea of the Hoop-a-Thon came out of Eaton’s own love of hula hooping and passion for working with girls, she said.“I have always had a place in my heart for adolescent girls and their struggles,” Eaton said. “When I saw the news [on the Girls’ Summer Club] it just felt right.“I had no start-up money to organize the fundraiser and so everything that will happen that night came out of the good hearts of those involved.”Hossfeld said she received a grant in the summer of 2013 as a student intern to start the Girls’ Summer Club for the daughters of women at St. Margaret’s House, but this summer the funding is uncertain.“We are hoping that [the Hoop-a-Thon] can help us start raising the funds that are necessary to keep the program running and to let us do some really fun things,” Hossfeld said.The idea behind the Girls’ Summer Club was to build the girls’ self-esteem in a variety of ways, Hossfeld said.“I initially wanted to do Girls’ Club so that we could talk about things like body image, healthy eating habits and self esteem because I believe that these are very prevalent problems in woman of all ages,” Hossfeld said. “I also think addressing these topics young can help girls to have positive ideas.”Hossfeld said the program incorporated having fun and learning about issues the girls are facing in a way that encouraged the girls to enjoy coming to the Girls’ Summer Club and making friends.“The girls made journals so that they could have a positive outlet for their feelings,” Hossfeld said. “We did things on body image such as the Barbie project and compared the dimensions of what Barbie would be if she was real, and how that compares to our bodies.”Eaton said she hopes students will realize the value in the Girls’ Summer Club and come join in the hula hooping fun.“I hope that we get a good student turnout to support the event, hoop and have fun,” Eaton said.Saint Mary’s and Notre Dame students should attend the Hoop-a-Thon to support the local community, Hossfeld said.“I think it is very easy to get caught in the SMC and ND bubble and forget about the community around us,” she said. “Just down the street there are families who are struggling to put food on the table or provide essential daily things for themselves or their children.“It would be a great experience for people to come out and meet these wonderful women and their daughters. Plus all of the money goes to a good cause.”Tags: Hoop-a-Thon, saint mary’s, SMC, St. Margaret’s House
Organic farmer Will Harris of White Oak Pastures in Bluffton, Ga., has been named the Georgia state winner of the 2013 Swisher Sweets/Sunbelt Expo Southeastern Farmer of the Year.Harris will represent the peach state in October at the Sunbelt Ag Expo, the nation’s largest agricultural exposition where one of nine Southeastern state winners will be named the overall winner for 2013.A multi-generational farmHarris has made great strides on the farm where his grandfather, Will Sr., once used a muledrawn wagon to deliver beef and pork to four general stores, a hotel and a boarding house. After World War II, Harris’ father, Will Jr., raised calves and shipped them to the Midwest for finishing on grain in feedlots.Today, the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences graduate runs the family farm his way. The genetics of his herd can be traced back to his grandfather’s cracker cattle, but now the animals (cows and chickens) are grass-fed and processed on the farm’s onsite, USDA-inspected processing facility. He believes the grass-fed system is better for the environment and the land. “My land is improved every year by the way we treat it,” he said. “We don’t use chemical fertilizers. We just plain don’t use chemicals on the land.”Harris believes his forefathers would be happy with the changes he’s made at White Oak Pastures. “My grandfather used to say, ‘If you take care of the land and the cows, they’ll take care of you.’ That certainly defines the way we run our farm today,” he said.From grain to grassIn 1995 he began switching his cattle from its traditional grain diet to a 100 percent forage diet. The result became White Oak Pastures grass-fed ground beef. “I’ve had UGA run fatty acid and lipid profiles on my beef, and they found that it’s high in the good fats, omega 3 and CLAs, and low in the saturated fats,” Harris said. “It tastes better, but that’s subjective. Honestly, a lot of high-end chefs have told me personally that they prefer grass-fed beef.”Harris said the farm had grass-fed beef and lamb customers who wanted pastured poultry. In response, he began to raise chickens, turkeys, geese, ducks and guineas. White Oak Pastures also raises egg-laying hens and grows certified organic vegetables.A ‘magical system’“We became fascinated with the Serengeti Rotational Grazing Model,” Harris said. “We already had the large ruminants (cattle) and the small ruminants (sheep). We needed the poultry to get it right. It’s a magical system for the land and the animals.” Harris takes pride in how his stock are treated. White Oak Pastures’ processing plants and systems were designed by legendary humane animal scientist Temple Grandin. “We treat our animals with dignity and respect all their lives. They’re never confined, and they’re never harvested in an inhumane manner,” he said. Harris also doesn’t use antibiotics or hormones on his farm.White Oak Pastures’ products are sold through grocery and food service distributors as well as directly to customers through their online store and on-farm store. Growing food for niche marketsSteve Brown, associate dean for UGA Extension, says Harris has been “extremely successful at understanding new opportunities and capitalizing on them.” “Agriculture in Georgia has always been extremely diverse. As consumers continue to demand new food products with the characteristics that are important to them, new niche markets are created, which Georgia farmers, like Will, can fill,” he said.Brian Cresswell, Early County Extension agent, says Harris has always been “forward thinking.” Cresswell nominated Harris for the award.“He understands what he’s doing and why he’s doing it. It’s nice to see any business run by generations of a family. Will has always been on the top of his game, from running a regular beef cattle operation to where he is now,” said Cresswell. Having worked in the county for more than 20 years, Cresswell sees first hand how Harris’ farm benefits the area. “A lot of folks come to the county just to see the operation and buy products from their store,” he said.Recognition, cash and apparelAs the Georgia state winner of the Swisher Sweets/Sunbelt Expo award, Harris will receive a $2,500 cash award and an expense paid trip to the Sunbelt Expo from Swisher International; a $500 gift certificate from the Southern States Cooperative; the choice of either $1,000 in PhytoGen cottonseed or a $500 donation to a designated charity from Dow AgroSciences; and a Columbia vest from Ivey’s Outdoor and Farm Supply.He is now eligible for the $15,000 cash award that will go to the overall winner. Other prizes for the overall winner, in addition to their state winnings, include the use of a Massey Ferguson tractor for a year from Massey Ferguson North America; a $500 gift certificate and a Heritage gun safe from the Southern States Cooperative; the choice of either $1,000 in PhytoGen cottonseed or a $500 donation to a designated charity from Dow AgroSciences; and a Columbia jacket from Ivey’s Outdoor and Farm Supply.Swisher International and the Sunbelt Expo are sponsoring the Southeastern Farmer of the Year awards for the 24th consecutive year. Swisher has contributed some $924,000 in cash awards and other honors to Southeastern farmers since the award was initiated in 1990.
