JinkoSolar reaches lawsuit settlement to tune of $5.05 millionChinese solar manufacturer enters into settlement relating to 2011 lawsuit brought over environmental regulation dispute to “eliminate uncertainty” and burden of further protracted litigation, says company. September 30, 2015 Ian Clover Legal Markets Markets & Policy Share JinkoSolar, the Tier-1 Chinese solar company, has reached a $5.05 million settlement in a lawsuit brought in 2011 regarding the purchase of American Depositary Shares pertaining to the alleged misrepresentation of Jinkos compliance with Chinese environmental regulations. Should the settlement offer be approved by the New York federal court, members of the class action will be entitled to their share of the $5.05 million settlement, less any court-related charges. JinkoSolars insurers will part-fund the monies, with JinkoSolar stumping up the remaining bill while taking no further charges in connection with the case. For its part, JinkoSolar reiterated in a press statement its denial of any wrongdoing in relation to the allegations, stating that it has decided to reach the settlement to “eliminate the uncertainty, burden and expense of further protracted litigation.” The shares in question were issued between May 13, 2010 and September 20, 2011, prompting a class action lawsuit alleging that JinkoSolars filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) obfuscated the extent of the companys environmental compliance in China.Popular content The Hydrogen Stream: 20 MW green hydrogen plant in Finland, two Australian projects move forward Sergio Matalucci 20 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy want to set up a 20 MW blue hydrogen production facility in the U.K. Australia’s Origin Energy wants to build a hy… 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.

I found James Maddock’s thoughtful article of great interest (“Space: The final frontier”, 23 January 2015, page 31). My experience of the work space is mainly from BDP’s late Preston office, in which I worked for 30 years and at the end of which comprised about 300 staff, mostly working in open plan office space. The principal aim was to establish flexible space for any size of multi-profession design teams to work together for the duration of a project. Work spaces were visually separated from each other by moveable screens at shoulder height, to provide a feeling of privacy when seated and a limited opportunity to personalise one’s own work space. There were meeting rooms of various sizes, up to a size necessary for a major conference and down to the space required for the occasional need for private or sensitive working – the latter rarely needed.There was only ever one private office, for the senior partner and when he retired it became one more conference/meeting room. Otherwise, partners and staff shared the same total space. We were always proud to show clients and other visitors round: although the clients were always complimentary, very few adopted open plan working themselves. I recall visiting Boots’ head office at Nottingham shortly after their new office block had been occupied. It had been their intention that it should be totally open plan, but senior management had objected, so cellular offices had to be inserted around the perimeter. My experience underlines much of Maddock’s thesis. We are a wealthy nation, so occupiers of office buildings deserve the quality of space to enable them to deliver what they were employed to do. For the many, a workspace should be quiet, private, well lit and heated, provide privacy and some opportunity to personalise it.Whether open plan for the workers and private offices for the bosses should prevail is a matter for the culture of the organisation. There is a clear case for a private office for the director who needs privacy, or has to entertain important visitors, but if the desire for separation is driven only by status, open plan may be better for morale.Malcolm Taylor FRICS, via email
BERLIN, (Reuters) – Germany’s former world super-middleweight and light-heavyweight champion Graciano Rocchigiani has died aged 54 in southern Italy after being hit by a car while out walking, officials said yesterday. The boxer, who had an Italian father and German mother, had held both the IBF super-middleweight title from 1988 to 1989 as well as the WBC light-heavyweight in 1998 by defeating Michael Nunn.Rocchigiani, who fought all 48 of his professional fights in Germany, captivated the boxing world with his bouts against fellow German Henry Maske and Poland’s Dariusz Michalczewski in the 1990s.His last fight was in 2003 when he was defeated for the vacant WBC international light heavyweight title. “Berlin mourns one of its athletes, who in the 1980s and 1990s fascinated the crowds,” said Berlin mayor Michael Mueller in a statement.“Rocky, as he was known around the world, was not only after Max Schmeling and Eckhard Dagge the third German world champion in the professional sport.“He was also an original Berliner, who combined his mouth and his heart. Not everything worked out for him in life as it did in the ring. But Berliners loved him for his sometimes rough and edgy ways. We mourn a boxer with a big heart.” Rocchigiani, who had been imprisoned for assault and driving without a valid licence, had been the youngest German world boxing champion. He also worked as a boxing commentator.
For additional injury news and fantasy updates, follow us on Twitter (@SN_Fantasy). WEEK 5 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerLISTEN TO THE SN FANTASY WEEK 5 PREVIEW PODCAST BELOWIs Stefon Diggs going to be traded?UPDATE: Diggs practiced in full on Thursday.Diggs was shown on the sidelines during Week 4 looking very displeased, then was listed as a Did Not Participate for Wednesday’s practice for non-injury reasons. Multiple reports have indicated that Diggs is not available in a trade, but there’s definitely some tension in Minnesota. Diggs returned to practice Thursday.It’s hard to even predict what the ramifications of a potential Diggs’ trade would be, but he’d definitely be in a better spot than run-happy Minnesota. Assuming Diggs plays Sunday, he’ll be in a good spot for production against a Giants’ secondary that’s struggled all season.WEEK 5 DFS LINEUPS:Y! cash | Y! GPP | FD cash | FD GPP | DK cash | DK GPPIs Jarvis Landry playing Monday night?As of Thursday morning, Landry remains in concussion protocol, according to cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot. Landy had eight catches for 167 yards in Week 4 before being injured.The Browns don’t play until Monday night, so Landry owners are in a tough spot. Antonio Callaway has returned from suspension and could step into No. 2 duties if Landry is out, but Rashard Higgins is also working his way back from an ankle injury and would be in that conversation if he’s active. Damion Ratley, the No. 3 WR from Week 4, could also play a part.WEEK 5 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endIs Davante Adams playing in Week 5?It’s pretty clear Adams won’t play Sunday against the Cowboys, although he’s yet to be officially ruled out. His absence would move Marquez Valdes-Scantling into the No. 1 WR role, while Geronimo Allison would play in the slot while Jake Kumerow presumably would be the other WR in three-wide sets.MVS is a clear fantasy start this week if he’s the Packers’ top receiver, but that’s about it. Allison has underwhelmed this year and won’t necessarily see a role increase out of his normal slot position. Kumerow could be a DFS option if you need a really cheap wideout.WEEK 5:Top waiver pickups | FAAB planner | Trade values | Snap countsTetry McLaurin injury updateMcLaurin (hamstring) warmed up prior to Week 4’s game but was then ruled inactive. He said he’s made “a lot of progress” since Sunday, and he was a limited participant at practice on Wednesday ahead of a Sunday meeting with the Patriots. McLaurin was a limited participant again at practice Thursday.McLaurin isn’t a good fantasy start even if he’s active. The Pats’ defense has allowed one offensive touchdown through four weeks, and the Redskins have as messy a quarterback situation as any team in the league. McLaurin would probably get a heavy dose of star cornerback Stephon Gilmore, too.MORE WEEK 5 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup builderWill Tyrell Williams play Week 5?Williams missed Wednesday’s practice in London ahead of the Raiders’ Week 5 meeting across the pond with the vaunted Bears’ defense. Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson said he hopes some rest and recovery will allow Williams to be ready to play Sunday.Williams is, at best, a FLEX play in a tough matchup for Oakland, but he probably has some fantasy owners tempted to play him if he’s active since he’s caught touchdowns in every game this year. The only possible DFS value to come out of a Williams’ absence would be Trevor Davis, whose ability to break a big play makes him slightly intriguing in DFS tourmanets despite the matchup.DeSean Jackson injury updateUPDATE: Jackson missed practice again Thursday.Jackson (groin) still hasn’t returned to Eagles’ practice, with Philly head coach Doug Pederson just reiterating that Jackson is day-to-day. Philadelphia is a heavy favorite in Week 5 against the New York Jets.Alshon Jeffery’s return to health has been good for the Eagles’ passing game and Carson Wentz, so the Jets’ matchup shouldn’t pose a threat to Philly success through the air. Nelson Agholor remains a potential PPR play with plenty of points in play for Philadelphia while Jackson is out.Mike Williams injury newsWilliams missed Week 4 due to a back injury, but he returned to Wednesday’s Chargers’ practice in a limited fashion. Williams has battled back injuries on and off throughout his NFL career, so it’s probably not going away, but it’s good that he was back on the practice field. Trade candidate Stefon Diggs has made a big week for WR injury monitoring even more confusing with his unexplained absence from Minnesota’s Wednesday practice. Then there are plenty of potential starting fantasy receivers on injury reports around the league: Davante Adams, Jarvis Landry, Terry McLaurin, Michael Gallup, Tyrell Williams, Mike Williams, and DeSean Jackson. All of these names could be in fantasy lineups while healthy, but any absences would create start ’em/sit ’em questions about their backups.MORE WEEK 5 INJURY UPDATES: Quarterbacks | Running backs | Sunday Night Football Melvin Gordon’s return means we don’t quite know how this offense will play out in Week 5, but the Chargers should have some overall success against the Broncos’ defense that’s now without Bradley Chubb. De’Vante Bausby shapes up to cover Williams if he’s active, and Bausby’s allowed just 6.5 yards per attempt and no touchdowns on passes in his direction so far in 2019.When is Michael Gallup returning?Gallup is expected to play in Week 5 against the Packers, according to the Dallas Morning News. He also told ESPN’s Todd Archer that he’s yet to run at full speed, though. Devin Smith has started opposite Amari Cooper in Gallup’s absence.With Cooper being shadowed by stud corner Jaire Alexander on Sunday, another Dallas receiver might have to step up. Gallup’s health doesn’t sound encouraging for a full workload if he plays, though, but that would also cut into Smith’s chances of doing anything. Maybe it’ll be Randall Cobb stepping up in a revenge game out of the slot for Dallas.
PSC golf Bunker Boys @ The RanchMonday, Feb. 4, Bangpra – StablefordOnly 15 golfers departing the Ranch today, as a contingent of eight regulars had already headed off to Soi Dao for a two-day competition. We had planned to play a medal round, but because the group was small and comprised predominately of high handicappers, the decision was made to revert to stableford. Everything looked quiet as we arrived at the course and we were hoping that maybe we could tee off early, but the starter informed us that a large group of golfers from the hotel were scheduled to tee off before us, and they duly arrived right on time.Gez Williams takes an early lead in the Golfer of the Month race.After the first hole it was obvious it was going to be a long day and the decision to play stableford turned out to be the right one because the greens were faster than we’ve experienced for some time (some said ever!), and four putts were almost became the norm.There were 4 groups on the par-3 seventeenth hole when our first group reached there, which just about summed up the day, and the round was eventually completed in just under 5 hours.Dave Keats won the honours on the day with a modest 31 points, one point ahead of Peter Habgood, and everyone agreed that the poor scores were mainly down to the difficulty of the greens. Dave Keats had 6 “wipes” on his card, so his medal score would have been interesting!1st Dave Keats (31) 31pts2nd Peter Habgood (21) 30pts3rd Gez Williams (17) 28pts4th Tony Robbins (12) 26ptsNear Pins: Alan Harris, John Hughes, Gary Austin and Peter Habgood.Wednesday, Feb. 6, Crystal Bay A&B – MedalThe Crystal Bay management had called the day previous to inform us that our scheduled tee time had been put back 20 minutes because they had overbooked, so we set off from the Ranch expecting another long day. In the event we arrived at the course to find it surprisingly quiet, and the starter informed us that we could tee off straight away – before our originally scheduled time – only in Thailand!There were no holdups throughout the round, and the first four-ball were back in the clubhouse in under 4 hours, which made a very pleasant change from some of our recent rounds.The course was generally in good shape, but the bunkers are being badly neglected, particularly around the edges, where the unlucky golfer can easily find himself with an almost unplayable lie. When you consider just how pristine this course was kept just a few short years ago, it’s a little bit sad to see it deteriorating, but it’s fair to say that most players still enjoy playing here.With a field of 24 golfers, the cut was set at 15 and under, and all the best scores were in the B Flight, with Gez Williams and Thomas Nyborg both scoring 38 points, but Gez was declared winner on the count back.A Flight1st Alan Harris (10) 35pts2nd Tony Robbins (12) 34pts3rd Cyril Wallwork (14) 34ptsB Flight1st Gez Williams (17) 38pts2nd Thomas Nyborg (20) 38pts3rd Raleigh Gosney (18) 36ptsNear Pins: Gary Austin, Tony Robbins, Mark West and Geoff Parker.Friday, Feb. 8, Pleasant Valley – StablefordAfter reading some horrendous reports of bad management and organization in the Pattaya Mail the previous week, we set off for Pleasant Valley with some trepidation. We arrived to find the course quiet with no shortage of caddies, and we tee’d off on schedule – different day – different experience!The course was generally in reasonable shape, with good grass on the fairways, but the bunkers are being badly neglected, and the greens were grainy and slow. It has to be said that the management here could make some significant improvements with very little effort or cost, i.e. rake the bunkers, install proper hazard markers and fix the leaking sprinklers.Having said all that, it turned out to be a pleasant (sic) day, and none more so than for long term absentee Alan Sullivan. Alan was playing his first game with us since the move to The Ranch last August, and proceeded to plunder the pot, winning the A Flight and collecting a near pin prize in the process.Reg Smart made a welcome return to form, scoring 37 points to win the B Flight, which included 25 points on the back nine – what happened on the front nine Reg?A Flight1st Alan Sullivan (12) 39pts2nd Tony Scambler (8) 36pts3rd Geoff Parker (13) 36ptsB Flight1st Reg Smart (30) 37pts2nd Tore Eliasson (16) 36pts3rd John Hughes (18) 36ptsNear Pins: Alan Sullivan, Tony Berry, Tony Scambler and William Macey.Note: The Bunker Boys are a PSC affiliated golf society who now play out of The Ranch bar on Pattaya 3rd Road (in front of the fire station, and almost opposite the Buffalo Bar). We play three times per week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, so if you enjoy a fun day out, and a friendly but competitive golf competition why not come and join us.We meet at The Ranch at 9 a.m. for breakfast and transportation, and new players are always welcome.

The Madrid midfielder picked up his injury during the last round of international matches when Colombia played Peru. That was on September 8 and there has been little news since. Just an image on Instagram of him working on trampolines to return to fitness. It’s speculated that he will miss one month of football. Nobody seems to know the real length of time Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez will be out of action for. The medical team at Madrid have not expanded on “a muscle problem in his left thigh”, while Colombia failed to reveal any details of his injury. It’s provoked Colombia boss Jose Pekerman to worry as he prepares for important World Cup 2018 qualification games. In October the Cafeteros play matches against Peru and Uruguay. Pekerman understands that nobody can replace James in the national team and his presence is key to ensure Colombia’s qualification campaign gets off to a good start. He’s also a big loss for Rafa Benitez’s Real Madrid, as the Spanish coach admitted before Los Blancos’s game with RCD Espanyol. 22/09/2015 at 14:59 Sport EN CEST

Andrew Purcell and Mark Wiley were the leaders on Saturday night in another Fiesta R5, just two seconds ahead of the eventual winners, with former Valvoline Forestry champion Josh Moffett and his co-driver Stephen Thornton another fourteen seconds behind. The Monaghan-Donegal pairing of Barry McKenna and Leon Jordan scored a narrow victory in the Jim Walsh Cork Forest Rally at the weekend, even though they weren’t the winners on either of the two days. Moffett was the pacesetter on yesterday’s six stages, closing to within twelve seconds of McKenna by the finish, while Purcell slipped back to third position, just over a minute behind the victorious pair. Each day counted as a separate round of the Valvoline Championship, with Purcell and Moffett being the two top scorers.Motorsport Ireland’s Young Rally Driver of the Year, Callum Devine from Derry, took fifth place in the Junior WRC section of Rally Finland, giving himself a successful debut in the famous World Rally Championship round with its fearsome, ultra high speed, gravel surfaced stages.Devine and co-driver Brian Hoy climbed to fourth at one point, behind drivers with lots of experience on this type of stage, but a puncture on the Assamaki stage cost him valuable time and one place in the final results.print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email
ACU’s No. 1 and 2 doubles teams of Brittney Reed and Kaysie Hermsdorf, and Lucile Pothier and Erin Walker, each blanked their opposition by matching 8-0 scores. The No. 3 tandem of Nada Marjanovic and Ansley Boarman then doubled up Matea Zemunik and Antea Dedic, 8-4. Kaysie Hermsdorf ran her unbeaten streak to seven with a 6-1, 6-1 victory over Matea Zemunik, and Reed improved to 4-1 at No. 1 after topping Rachel Sadiq, 7-5, 6-3. No. 2 Vivienne Kulicke took the opening set 6-1, but fell in the final two 4-6, 3-6 to Susana Alcarez. No. 5 Macarena Sedano Acosta dropped a hard-fought 6-7, 4-6 match to Mia Brandt with No. 6 Julia Lorca losing 1-6, 4-6 to Marie-Pier Thiffault. – Return to Top – In the doubles competition, SFA’s No. 1 team of Malena Gordo and Dhanielly Quevedo cruised past Susan Alcaraz and Erika Castillo Lopez 6-1. But the Ladyjacks suffered a pair of hard fought losses in the other two matches as Valeria Terentyeva and Vivienne Kulicke fell 6-4 while Julia Lorca and Macarena Sedano Acosta dropped a 7-5 decision to give the Aggies the doubles point. Abilene Christian 7, UIW 0New Mexico State 4, Stephen F. Austin 3 That point would prove costly as SFA split the six single matches against New Mexico State, highlighted by a 6-7, 6-4, 10-8 victory by No. 1 Malena Gordo over Ashvarya Shrivistava. No. 3 Dhanielly Quevedo defeated Denise Van Der Ben 2-6, 6-4-6-3 while No. 4 Valeria Terentyeva earned a 6-4, 0-6, 6-3 win over Erika Castillo Lopez. Abilene Christian 7, UIW 0ABILENE, Texas – Abilene Christian women’s tennis continued its winning streak against Incarnate Word Friday by shutting the Cardinals out for the fifth-straight match, 7-0, on the indoor courts of the Teague Events Center. SFA next returns to the courts on Saturday, March 14, traveling to A&M-Corpus Christi for an 11 a.m. match. The match against the Islanders begins a four-match road swing, including matchups with Incarnate Word, UT-San Antonio and Cincinnati. ACU’s women’s team is off from competition until the weekend of March 19, when it will hit the road for matches vs. Tyler, Stephen F. Austin and Northwestern State. Boarman clinched the team shutout with her victory at No. 6 over Maria Batchinsky, 6-0, 6-3. New Mexico State 4, Stephen F. Austin 3LAS CRUCES, N.M. – Stephen F. Austin came up one match short against New Mexico State, dropping a 4-3 decision to the Aggies in Las Cruces, N.M. The loss drops the Ladyjacks to 5-4 on the season heading into Southland Conference play. The Cardinals fell to 1-11 on the season (0-1 Southland) following today’s loss and haven’t won a single point against ACU in singles or doubles since March of 2011, while the Wildcats improved to 5-0 (2-0 Southland) with a victory that included eight shutout sets. In singles competition, No. 4 Pothier and No. 5 Marjanovic each pitched a shutout and Walker came within a point of doing so at No. 3, beating Sarah Savedra, 6-1, 6-0. Stephen F. Austin was scheduled to return to the Schlief Tennis Complex this Sunday, March 8, for its Southland Conference opener against Central Arkansas at 11 a.m. However, due to the impending inclement weather, that match has been postponed to a future date that will be named later. Reed and Hermsdorf are now 10-0 on the spring, while Pothier and Walker moved to 4-0 overall at No. 2 and 2-0 vs. the Southland. The decision for Marjanovic and Boarman was their first together in dual play after going 1-3 at the Indiana Winter Invitational. – Return to Top –
