Model situation?

first_imgIn 2009, when the United States fell into economic recession, greenhouse gas emissions also fell, by 6.59 percent relative to 2008.In the power sector, however, the recession was not the main cause.Researchers at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have shown that the primary explanation for the reduction in CO2 emissions from power generation that year was that a decrease in the price of natural gas reduced the industry’s reliance on coal.According to their econometric model, emissions could be cut further by the introduction of a carbon tax, with negligible impact on the price of electricity for consumers.”If the gas price continues to drop, you’ll continue to go down this curve so that you’ll knock out not just the really ancient coal-fired power plants, but maybe some of the more recent coal-fired plants,” said Xi Lu. Image courtesy of Bruno D. Rodrigues via FlickrA regional analysis, assessing the long-term implications for energy investment and policy, appears in the journal Environmental Science & Technology.In the United States, the power sector is responsible for 40 percent of all carbon emissions. In 2009, CO2 emissions from power generation dropped by 8.76 percent. The researchers attribute that change to the new abundance of cheap natural gas.“Generating 1 kilowatt-hour of electricity from coal releases twice as much CO2 to the atmosphere as generating the same amount from natural gas, so a slight shift in the relative prices of coal and natural gas can result in a sharp drop in carbon emissions,” explains Michael B. McElroy, Gilbert Butler Professor of Environmental Studies at SEAS, who led the study.“That’s what we saw in 2009,” he says, “and we may well see it again.”Patterns of electricity generation, use, and pricing vary widely across the United States. In parts of the Midwest, for instance, almost half of the available power plants (by capacity) were built to process coal. Electricity production can only switch over to natural gas to the extent that gas-fired plants are available to meet the demand. By contrast, the Pacific states and New England barely rely on coal, so price differences there might make less of an impact.To account for the many variables, McElroy and his colleagues at SEAS developed a model that considers nine regions separately.Their model identifies the relationship between the cost of electricity generation from coal and gas and the fraction of electricity generated from coal.“When the natural gas prices are high, as they were four years ago, if the gas prices come down a little bit, it doesn’t make any difference,” explains lead author Xi Lu, a postdoctoral associate at SEAS. “But there’s a critical price level where the gas systems become more cost-effective than the oldest coal-fired systems.“If the gas price continues to drop, you’ll continue to go down this curve so that you’ll knock out not just the really ancient coal-fired power plants, but maybe some of the more recent coal-fired plants.”The model also predicts that a government-imposed carbon tax on emissions from power generation would drive a move away from coal.“With a relatively modest carbon tax — about $5 per ton of CO2 — you could save 31 million tons of CO2 in the United States, and that would change the price of electricity by a barely noticeable amount,” says McElroy.The initial model was developed by Jackson Salovaara ’11, an applied mathematics concentrator at SEAS. His work was recognized as the “best senior thesis” in the Harvard Environmental Economics Program, earning him the Stone Prize in May 2011.Since then, the model has been “souped up,” incorporating more sophisticated regional data analysis, and producing not just the findings on 2009 but also predictions for more recent years.“While the data from 2011 are not yet available, based on the gas prices, we’re making a confident prediction that there should be a continued shift from coal to natural gas in 2011 as compared to 2008,” says McElroy.“That’s good news for the atmosphere.”The research was supported by the National Science Foundation.last_img read more

Rivers Angels, Bayelsa Queens ignite rivalry in AITEO Cup semis

first_imgWhen the AITEO Cup resumes on Saturday for the semi-finals, the Nembe City stadium would be the centre of attraction in the women’s category as Rivers Angels and Bayelsa Queens go head to head for the third time this year.Last year, the South South rivals clashed in the final of the cup competition at the Teslim Balogun stadium in Lagos and it was the Jewel of Rivers who emerged victorious on penalties after a keenly contested regular time encounter.While Rivers Angels are looking to defend their title, Bayelsa Queens have their eyes on a third AITEO Cup final appearance and can even begin to smell the trophy if they can successfully delete their nemesis from the competition.During the regular season of the Nigeria Women Premier League, both sides met twice and each enjoyed 2-1 home victories, so it will not be so much of a surprise if this AITEO Cup tie is decided by penalties. Not forgetting that they overcame their quarter-final opponents via penalties as well. However, the battle is expected to be fierce over two legs as both sides are well equipped going forward; with the likes of Tessy Biahwo and Aminat Yakubu for Bayelsa Queens, then Amarachi Ojinma and Patience Kalu for Rivers Angels.After the first leg takes centre stage in Nembe on Saturday, the return leg will be decided at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium on Wednesday 4 October.Abia Angels kicked outAfter reaching the semi-finals of the oldest football competition in the country for the first time ever, Abia Angels were on Thursday thrown out for fielding an ineligible player in their quarter-final encounter against Confluence Queens.According to the Head of AITEO Cup competition, Emmanuel Adesanya, the decision was made after a careful consideration of a protest lodged by Confluence Queens. The player in question was not disclosed. Meanwhile Abia Angels are aggrieved that they were not given the opportunity to defend themselves as they intend to protest the decision.The decision however means Confluence Queens will now be the ones to play Ibom Angels in the other semi-final on Saturday in Uyo, before hosting them in Lokoja next week. Both sides will be meeting for the first time this year.It is just unfortunate how things have turned out for Abia Angels who in the last eight beat Confluence Queens 1-0 at home in Umuahia, before coming from two goals down to shock the Lokoja based side in the return leg.Relatedlast_img read more

Clippers’ versatility, and their willingness to embrace it, bodes well for Doc Rivers’ team

first_img Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 Rivers appreciates all of that, but he said it’s Harrell’s willingness to cooperate – and sacrifice – that most impresses him. The 25-year-old center, who is entering the final season of a two-year deal with the Clippers, has pick-and-rolled with the punches to increasing success in his time with L.A. After averaging 16.1 points last season, he averaged 16 points in 22 minutes per five preseason games.“It’s nice to have guys that just want to play their role, or cooperate would be the better word for it,” Rivers said. “You tell Lou he’s starting, he says, ‘OK.’ You tell Lou he’s off the bench, he’s like, ‘OK.’ I always say for Lou, he’s done it for so long. For JaMychal, he’s come off the bench for most of his career, (so) it’s easier.“For Trezz, that’s the one to me that stands out as a guy who clearly could want to start. But having said that, he knows what works for the team … and I think that is really cool because he’s young.” Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory That could work not just because of the Clippers’ interchangeable skill sets, but because they’re amenable to being flexible.“I’m not really concerned about starting, I just really wanna play and be in there during the crunch time and when it counts,” said JaMychal Green, a 6-foot-9 forward who’s proved he can knock down 3-pointers in big moments — starting the Clippers’ final three first-round playoff games against the Golden State Warriors last season, and four of five games this preseason.“We got a lot of talent on the team, so there’s a lot of different matchups and lineups Doc wants to play with,” Green added. “And whatever works, works.”“That’s what it takes to be a pretty good team, you have to have a certain level of buy-in,” Williams said. “I don’t really care. Can we put that to bed, that I asked to come off the bench? Nobody has asked me to start. I hate when people say, ‘You ask to come off the bench so you can win awards.’ No, I don’t. That’s a ridiculous idea. I do whatever is required for the team.“If Doc needs me to start and gives us a scoring punch to start games opposed to in the second quarter, that’s what I’ll do.” Kristaps Porzingis ruled out as Clippers, Mavericks set for Game 5; Follow for game updates PLAYA VISTA — Clippers coach Doc Rivers has hinted this preseason that he wants to take advantage of his team’s versatility — and its cooperative nature — by employing a “sliding” starting lineup, suggesting that only superstar wings Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are locks as starters.But George is expected to miss the first few weeks recovering from offseason shoulder surgeries and it wouldn’t surprise anyone if Leonard rests some games. So although none of the Clippers’ five preseason games was a true dress rehearsal for how they’ll perform with a full ensemble, the exhibition season served to prepare them for potentially shifting personnel. They started five lineups, with only Landry Shamet featured in each.Leonard, Patrick Beverley and Lou Williams all rested a game or two or three — and Williams, the three-time Sixth Man of the Year, even got a rare start alongside his reserve running mate Harrell.“When you think about last year’s team, the bench was great, we needed a great starting lineup,” Rivers said. “And now, if you add Paul and Kawhi, now we have a starting lineup, so maybe we can keep our bench intact. Having said that, I will not be surprised if I did use Lou as a starter for some games — him and Trezz, because you do still want to keep them together. So you look at a lineup of Paul, Kawhi, Lou, Trezz and we always say pick ’em; if you want to be big or small, you can go a lot of different ways.”Related Articleslast_img read more

Tablet Developers: Build Productive Apps, Not Games

first_imgdan rowinski Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Developers have a distinct incentive to build apps for tablets before smartphones. People use their tablets for longer periods of time and tablet apps are easier to monetize than their smartphone counterparts. And, believe it or not, there is a clear area in the app ecosystem for tablets that is being underserved by developers.Tablets hold an outsized influence in the gadget economy. There are many more PCs and laptops in the world than tablets (for now). More than a billion people own a smartphones and adoption is proliferating at an exponential rate. In the second quarter of 2013, tablet shipments across the globe were 45.1 million, according to research firm IDC. That is about 19% of the 236.4 million total smartphones shipped in that same period.Yet tablets see nearly 25% of all mobile usage, according to new stats from analytics firm Mixpanel. People use their tablets for longer periods of time than their smartphones, playing games, reading and using social networks.  Tags:#Android#app developers#iOS#microsoft surface#tablet What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … If you have built a tablet app that people actually use, there is a good chance it is a game. According to Mixpanel’s latest report, 44% of all tablet usage was for gaming. The next four usage categories (social, education, e-commerce and media) account for a combined 27% of all tablet usage. The remaining 29% is divided between categories like travel, enterprise, music, messaging, photography and health. “The biggest clear difference between a tablet and a phone is screen size and I think the best apps will find a way to monetize better on the tablet,” said Mixpanel CEO Suhail Doshi. “More importantly, because you have more real estate you can push the boundaries of design as you are not as restricted as you are with the small screen of a phone.”The easy trap for developers to fall in is to say, “people use games, games make more money, let’s build more games!” Because, you know, when everybody else is doing it, you should be doing it, too. Right?Not exactly. One of the reasons games do better on tablets (and on smartphones) as a category is because both the Apple App Store and Android’s Google Play have tons and tons of games in their respective repositories. Some of those games (like Infinity Blade or Temple Run) are awesome. Some are soul-depleting time suckers (Candy Crush). It truly is the golden age for mobile game developers.Which is exactly why developers should look for the underserved categories of tablet apps. Tablets are custom made to be media consumption devices, for instance. Companies like Flipboard, Zite and Netflix serve this area very well. The New York Times and Washington Post both have fairly new updates to their tablet apps for iOS and Android. But tablets also have great potential for the workers of the world. Mixpanel’s data shows that enterprise-based apps beat only music, messaging, photo & video and dating apps in usage on its network. Health-related apps came in sixth, ahead of travel and enterprise. If you’ve ever used WebMD’s awesome iPad app, you might wonder why health apps for doctors and patients aren’t more of a priority for developers (outside of the draconian but necessary laws about transferring patient data on computers). Doshi says that enterprise-grade apps like Salesforce are just not meant for smartphones. But tablets? Yeah, that would work much better.center_img Related Posts Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces “There is no way you can really use Salesforce on an iPhone. No way. Salesforce could never build an app for a smartphone that would be sufficient for a person in the real world to use,” Doshi said. “One of the biggest aspects of Salesforce is the reporting. Building complex reports on your phone is basically not possible because there is just not enough space to build all the UI components to build a difficult report.”Mixpanel presents its data as “here are what people are doing, so this is what your opportunity is.” That may be the wrong way to look at it. Media, health, travel, enterprise and music are all market inefficiencies in the tablet app ecosystem. What do developers and entrepreneurs love to do? Correct inefficiency! That makes these app categories opportunities, not areas to be avoided. That goes double for Android tablets. According to Mixpanel, games account for 68% of overall usage for Android tablets. That’s a monopoly ripe for disruption by aspiring entrepreneurs that want to build great tablet experiences for enterprise, education and media on Android.The bottom line? The masses (and the data) will tell you to build a game for iOS. That is the way that everybody is zigging. So why not zag and build where no one else is building, where there are still consumers that need those types of apps?“I think the apps that will start to succeed on tablets are the ones that give you more creative freedom to build something. If you look at Photoshop, for example, you couldn’t ever really build Photoshop on your phone. It would just be too complex to do,” Doshi said. “But, you could do it on a tablet because there are more areas that you can build with, more options that you can mess with. I think you could build a more powerful app. I think that is where there where some of these guys in the middle ground can succeed.” The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologylast_img read more

Howard, Walker help Hornets send Nets to 8th straight loss

first_imgView comments LOOK: Iya Villania meets ‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ cast in Mexico MOST READ Howard set the tone from the start, with 10 points and 11 rebounds after just 10 minutes of play in the first quarter in leading the Hornets to a 32-28 edge.“That first quarter really hurt us,” Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said. “It wasn’t going as well with Dwight Howard in there, but we all have to help him (center Jarrett Allen) and do a better job; that is a load and a half.”Hornets coach Steve Clifford, who was an assistant in Orlando when Howard began his NBA career there, said he is surprised the 32-year-old who has had both knee and back surgery still is capable of nearing his career high in rebounds (26).“You’re talking about a guy that’s had major knee surgery and major back surgery,” Clifford said. “You’d never know it.”It is what his Hornets teammates have come to expect from Howard, who recorded his 37th double-double.ADVERTISEMENT “When guys get into a rhythm of playing 3-4 times a week, even though they’re fatigued, they’re in a rhythm,” Clifford said. “The break is great for everybody, it’s a reset. You get refreshed. And then the first game or two, it’s a little bit more like early in the season where they’ve got to get back into rhythm, feel comfortable again.”UP NEXTNets: Host Chicago on Monday.Hornets: Visit Washington on Friday.

We’re going to need that Dwight Howard to be there every night for us.”Even with Howard’s early dominance, both teams were playing their first game since the All-Star break and had to shake off the accompanying rust that resulted in roller-coaster play. The Hornets held a 55-53 halftime lead after hitting 46 percent behind the arc. Charlotte then had a 13-0 run to start the third quarter, sparked by seven points from Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.And the Hornets still needed Walker’s big fourth quarter, when he had 14 points on 5-for-6 shooting, to secure the victory.The Hornets outscored the Nets 31-22 in the fourth, and Howard managed to tack on just two more rebounds to his total in that final quarter.“I was tired,” Howard said with a sigh afterward. “I was tired.
