Greek students, teachers protest planned education reform

first_imgThousands of university students and instructors marched in Athens and the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki on to oppose a draft education reform bill that will include the policing of university campuses. About 5,000 protesters took to the streets of central Athens in a largely peaceful march Thursday, while about 1,000 people demonstrated in Thessaloniki. Greece’s center-right government has scrapped a decades-old ban on police entering university grounds, arguing the measure had been exploited to organize violent protests and criminal activity. The government plans to set up a campus police division and to limit entrance to universities to students, academic staff, employees and guests. Lawmakers are expected to vote on the bill next week.last_img read more

‘House of Cards’ and Ruthless Underwood Return for Season 2

first_imgComing along for the ride is his wife Claire, played by Wright, and Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara), a tenacious reporter who doesn’t mind crossing any ethical lines of journalism if it means nailing an exclusive and one-upping her competition.Viewers will probably see much of the same from the Underwoods and Barnes this season, though teasers hint at some of Underwood’s transgressions possibly interrupting what he probably sees as his eventual ascent to the throne.We doubt it. But there’s only one way to find out. So join us on Valentine’s Day as we welcome Francis, Claire and Zoe back into our lives. Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York The big news out of the TV world a week ago was that Netflix—the wildly popular online streaming service—ordered a third season of its hit streaming show House of Cards. While not surprising, the news was notable in that it was announced prior to the 13-episode show’s much-anticipated second season, which debuts Friday, a signal, perhaps, that Netflix is quite confident that viewers will latch on to its sophomore season, as it did—religiously, actually—when the drama first hit our computers, phones and tablets a year ago.House of Cards’ meteoric rise is no hyperbole; the political thriller starring Kevin Spacey, a conniving Democratic congressman with an unquenchable thirst for power, and Robin Wright, his equally scheming wife, became the first Netflix-exclusive show to rattle the TV industry and its network partners, who load up our screens with so much content nowadays that many storylines are beginning to closely resemble one another.But House of Cards would never land on any of those networks, anyway. Which is probably a good thing.The appeal of Netflix-exclusive shows like House of Cards and even Orange is the New Black, is the option to view an entire season on our own schedule—no network telling us when to sit on our couch and no reason to scrub that DVR clean just so we can record each episode. (Netflix announced that the entire season will be released in one hearty helping.)For those unfortunate souls who have yet to experience House of Cards, we won’t ruin it by publishing any spoilers—though there’s really no excuse for waiting this long.But thanks to information regarding the new season provided by Netflix in its press release and through several trailers, we know that Spacey’s character (Francis Underwood) will continue to work the dirty halls—and probably some back alleys—of Washington D.C. to further his ambitions.In fact, Underwood is so effective as a political animal that President Barack Obama was quoted in December as saying: “I wish things were that ruthlessly efficient.”That off-the-cuff remark during a meeting with heads of tech companies, prompted this Tweet from Spacey:President @BarackObama, to help achieve ruthless efficiency, a copy of Frank’s new book ‘How to Kick Ass & Influence Congress’ is on its way— Kevin Spacey (@KevinSpacey) December 18, 2013last_img read more

Vattenfall Picks Siemens Gamesa 10MW Turbines for Dutch Offshore Wind Farms

first_imgVattenfall and Siemens Gamesa have joined forces to deploy the new SG 10.0-193 DD turbines at the Hollandse Kust Zuid 1&2 offshore wind farm in the Dutch North Sea.Siemens Gamesa said it is in final negotiations to secure the contract for the supply of 76 of its 10MW turbines for the Hollandse Kust Zuid 1&2 project.In case Vattenfall wins the tender for Hollandse Kust Zuid 3&4, Siemens Gamesa would also be selected to provide the 10MW turbines, subject to the final investment decision. The wind farm would include 152 units in total.“Due to the increased capacity, we require fewer turbines to be placed at Hollandse Kust Zuid which clearly reduces the environmental impact of this wind farm compared to earlier ones,” said Gunnar Groebler, Vice President and Head of Business Area Wind at Vattenfall.“Larger turbines and greater availability also lead to major advantages in terms of electricity generation, which is particularly important in a subsidy free environment. Having fewer turbines to install also means lower costs and fewer risks during the installation process”.  The turbines are the latest generation on the market and will increase the efficiency by 30%, Siemens Gamesa said, adding that they are fitted with 94m long blades capable of generating more capacity per rotor lap than older, smaller turbines.Last year, Vattenfall won the tender to build Hollandse Kust Zuid 1&2, the first non-subsidised wind farm in the Netherlands. Initial preparations are now underway, with project completion expected in 2023.last_img read more
