Switch Shares Buzz from EWEA Offshore 2013

first_imgWith everyone looking forward to a new era of business, the main feeling at Offshore 2014 this year was one of optimism and huge excitement. Business is still quite slow.But future plans look bright with turbine manufacturers getting their offshore products ready, and marine infrastructure is ready to support the growth.Jussi Vanhanen, marketing director at The Switch shared three takeaways from the technology opening session led by Dr Andrew Garrad:1. We need to build totally new business modelsAreva’s Claudia Martens brought up how the industry needs to change its business models. We need open collaboration, which would allow for a strong learning curve to become more competitive. One great initiative would be to establish a fund to solve risk management issues. A warranty and liability equity fund could be a tool for that.2. Lowering the cost of energyNew offshore turbines are bigger and better. Blades, nacelles, drive trains and towers have been optimized even for offshore wind and environment conditions, but still the cost of energy is too high. Everyone agreed that now is the time to standardize foundations and bring mass production benefits to the market.3. Offshore is differentSiemen’s CTO Henrik Stiesdahl challenged everyone to think of how offshore is different from onshore. We underestimate the importance and cost of infrastructure. Lessons have been learned onshore, but we cannot copy everything. We need to engineer offshore from the scratch. This means some companies will become offshore specialists while others will always stay on dry land.Not many people know that The Switch was actually born offshore. Our first products were made for offshore turbines, and now we already have a 10-year track record. Press release, December 5, 2013; Image: theswitchlast_img read more

Tina Turner – Simply the Best vinyl review

first_imgTina Turner is the definition of an icon. Starting her career in 1958 as a featured singer with Ike Turner’s Kings of Rhythm, she stepped into the spotlight properly when she joined forces with Ike for the Ike & Tina Turner Revue in 1960. The pair married in 1962 and their tumultuous, and abusive, marriage has been well-documented. Following their divorce in 1978, Turner properly launched her solo career in 1984 with Private Dancer, an album that was certified 5x Platinum in the US and 3x Platinum in the UK. Her success continued with hits such as What’s Love Got To Do With It, Private Dancer, We Don’t Need Another Hero (Thunderdome) and The Best. On the eve of her 80th birthday, Turner’s iconic 1991 greatest hits collection Simply the Best has been reissued on vinyl.Originally released in 1991, Simply the Best was a hit across the world hitting 8x Platinum in the UK alone. The first greatest hits collection from Turner, the release contains Turner’s most popular songs from her solo comeback in the 80s through to the early 90s. It opens, fittingly, with The Best (not Simply the Best as the song is often incorrectly named) and the minute you hear Turner’s distinctive and powerful voice you’re drawn in. There’s no denying she’s influenced plenty of female singers that came after her (yes we’re looking at you Beyonce) and she ripped up the rule book for female singers. Leaning much more into rock than many of her contemporaries, she built on her legacy with her solo career and elevated it to the next level.With Turner having been retired for a number of years now, it’s easy to forget just how many hits she has and what a force of nature she was during her career. 1985’s I Can’t Stand the Rain, taken from Private Dancer, allows Turner’s iconic voice to soar with sparse instrumentation and it was sampled by Missy Elliott for her song The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly) in 1997. 1984’s What’s Love Got To Do With It is one of Turner’s most recognisable hits and it still sounds incredible 35 years on, while 1985’s We Don’t Need Another Hero (Thunderdome) taken from Max Max Beyond Thunderdome, which Turner starred in alongside Mel Gibson, set the standard for soundtrack cuts that followed.The hits come thick and fast on Simply the Best, and they showcase Turner’s remarkable versatility. Her version of Al Green’s Let’s Stay Together shows her soulful side, the rocky Steamy Windows highlights her seductive side, and River Deep – Mountain High is Turner in full-on diva mode. The catchy Private Dancer, a song that broke taboos on its release, has aged very well and it sounds crisp and fresh on vinyl.Simply the Best also housed new tracks and a live version of Robert Palmer’s Addicted to Love. Nutbush City Limits was given a 90s remix, Rod Stewart features on a cover of Marvin Gaye and Kim Weston’s It Takes Two, and the final three tracks on the album – I Want You Near Me, Way of the World and Love Thing – were all released as singles to promote the original release of Simply the Best. Of the three Love Thing is the standout, taking Turner back to her rock roots and providing a platform for the husky, gorgeous tone of hers to let rip.The new vinyl reissue of Simply the Best is available as a limited edition blue double LP-set and a standard black double LP set. Both are gatefold and feature the original Herb Ritts artwork. It’s pressed onto 140g vinyl and to my ears, these songs have never sounded better.Simply the Best is a must-have LP for your collection. These songs are iconic, classic and timeless, and they should be part of everyone’s vinyl stash. Tina Turner is one of those once-in-a-lifetime artists and her impact on the music world was hugely significant. Listening to all of these classic songs is a timely reminder of just how incredible she is and it makes you wish she was still recording now. With no filler in sight, Simply the Best is quite possibly the best greatest hits collection of all-time.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>Track list: Side A – 1.

BUZZER BEATER | Finally, a world title for Melindo

first_img[/av_textblock][/av_one_full] [av_one_full first min_height=” vertical_alignment=” space=” custom_margin=” margin=’0px’ padding=’0px’ border=” border_color=” radius=’0px’ background_color=” src=” background_position=’top left’ background_repeat=’no-repeat’ animation=”][av_heading tag=’h3′ padding=’10’ heading=’Finally, a world title for Melindo’ color=” style=’blockquote modern-quote’ custom_font=” size=” subheading_active=’subheading_below’ subheading_size=’15’ custom_class=”]By ADRIAN STEWART CO[/av_heading][av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]Wednesday, May 24, 2017[/av_textblock][av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”] AFTER failing in his first two tries, Milan Melindo has finally fulfilled his dream as a professional boxer after winning the International Boxing Federation (IBF) world light flyweight championship.Melindo captured the world title belt after scoring a quick first round technical knockout win over Japanese boxer Akira Yaegashi on Sunday evening at the Ariake Collosseum in Tokyo, Japan.The quick stoppage win by the ALA Boxing Stable standout Melindo over Yaegashi is considered historic as it is the fastest world championship fight in light flyweight division history.The 29-year-old Melindo was aggressive early on as he quickly dropped Yaegashi with a left hook. He unloaded the same shot seconds later for the Japanese boxer’s second knockdown.With a few seconds remaining in the bout, Melindo connected a cracking left and right combination that once again floored Yaegashi. Referee Eddie Hernandez did not bother to count and declared the Filipino boxer as the winner.“Masayang masaya po ako. Hindi ko po lubos maisip na ganoon po ang mangyayari,” Melindo said in an interview. “Si God po ang tumulong sa akin para magwagi sa first round. I just did my best.”“Hark work lang po at yung training po talaga. ‘Yung ginawa na pagdadasal din po sa Diyos, ‘yun po ang nagdadala ng panalo sa amin,” he added. “Belief in God and hard work, ‘yun po talaga ang key ng pagpapanalo.”Prior to his conquest over Yaegashi, Melindo had two tries in nailing the elusive world championship but suffered defeats against Mexican pugilists Juan Francisco Estrada and Javier Mendoza.The Cagayan de Oro-native Melindo became the fourth Filipino boxer world championship titleholder aside from Manny Pacquiao (WBO welterweight), Jerwin Ancajas (IBF junior bantamweight) and Donnie Nietes (IBF flyweight).With the victory, Melindo has improved his impressive boxing record to 36-2-0 win-loss-draw, including 13 stoppage wins. The 33-year-old Yaegashi’s slate, meanwhile, slid to a 25-6-0 win-loss-draw record with 13 knockout wins.***Days after Melindo’s successful title conquest, he immediately received a title defense offer from fellow Filipino boxer Randy Petalcorin, a former WBA interim light flyweight champion.The General Santos City-native Petalcorin said that he intently watch the quick bout between Melindo and Yaegashi and is confident of his chances against the fellow Filipino boxer.“I want to fight Melindo. I hope he has the balls to fight me,” Petalcorin told the Buzzer Beater. “It’s been a long time that we have not seen two Filipino boxers fighting for world championship.”Sanman Boxing Promotions CEO Jim Claude Manangquil said that, while is it unfortunate for two Filipino boxers to contest a world title, it is much needed to bring back the glory days of boxing.“There is really nothing wrong with an all-Pinoy world title fight. I think this is one of the things we need to accept to bring back the glory day of Philippine boxing,” said Manangquil.Petalcorin, who has an impressive 26-2-1 win-loss-draw ring record, including knockout victories, recently won the vacant IBF Pan Pacific light flyweight title and is ranked number 4 by the IBF./PNlast_img read more
