Erstmals seit 2005 erreichen CDU und CSU bei einer Umfrage von Emnid eine absolute Mehrheit. Das sei fast ausschließlich auf die Beliebtheit der Kanzlerin zurückzuführen, sagen Wahlforscher.
Die Union wäre einer Umfrage zufolge gegenwärtig bei einer Bundestagswahl so stark wie alle anderen Parteien zusammen. „Bild am Sonntag“ zitierte vorab aus einer Emnid-Umfrage von Ende Juli, der zufolge die CDU und CSU zusammen mit 43 Prozent die absolute Mehrheit erreichen würden.

Dies wäre zum erste Mal seit 2005 der Fall. Die Union liege dabei wie die SPD (24 Prozent) und die Grünen (zehn Prozent) unverändert. Die Linkspartei würde einen Prozentpunkt auf neun Prozent abgeben, die sonstigen Parteien mit sieben Prozent einen Punkt dazugewinnen. Nicht im Bundestag vertreten wären die FDP (vier Prozent) und die AfD (drei Prozent).

Cuanto menos luz gasta más paga usted en el recibo

Las eléctricas recuperan a través del término de potencia los costes de inversión en generación que no pueden recuperar por el precio de mercado de la electricidad.

 

Cualquiera puede observar que en los últimos dos años el precio de la energía utilizada para producir electricidad ha bajado, pero el recibo de la luz ha subido. Un elixir mágico, llamado regulación a la carta (de las compañías eléctricas, por supuesto), ha conseguido que el consumidor que menos energía eléctrica gasta sea el que pague más en términos relativos; y viceversa. Una política racional de precios procuraría que pagasen más (en términos relativos) los que más gastan, porque eso es lo que dicen los manuales de economía y porque de esa manera podría buscarse una disuasión del consumo. Pero en España sucede al revés. ¿Por qué?

Pues porque el regulador —el Gobierno— decidió en 2013 que era necesario, mejor dicho, imperativo, aumentar lo que paga el cliente en concepto de potencia contratada, que es la parte fija del recibo, para garantizar (parece la única explicación económica) los ingresos de las eléctricas. El balance desde agosto de 2013 es arrasador: para el consumidor doméstico ha supuesto una subida del 92% de la parte fija del recibo (término de potencia contratada) y del 145% para el consumidor industrial. La decisión ataca directamente los bolsillos de los clientes con menos capacidad económica y liquida cualquier política de ahorro; se haga lo que se haga con el consumo en los hogares, el peso principal del recibo sigue siendo inmune a la austeridad.

The supersonic, multi-role F-35

The designation of fighter aircraft by “generations” began with the first subsonic jets toward the end of World War II, with each new generation reflecting a major advance in technology and capability. The F-35 Lightning II is referred to as a 5th Generation fighter, combining advanced stealth capabilities with fighter aircraft speed and agility, fully-fused sensor information, network-enabled operations and advanced logistics and sustainment.

F 35

 

The supersonic, multi-role F-35 represents a quantum leap in air dominance capability with enhanced lethality and survivability in hostile, anti-access airspace environments.

The F-35 combines 5th Generation fighter aircraft characteristics — advanced stealth, integrated avionics, sensor fusion and superior logistics support — with the most powerful and comprehensive integrated sensor package of any fighter aircraft in history. The F-35’s advanced stealth allows pilots to penetrate areas without being detected by radars that legacy fighters cannot evade.

The F-35 is designed with the entire battlespace in mind, bringing new flexibility and capability to the United States and its allies. Reliance on any single capability — electronic attack, stealth, etc. — is not sufficient for success and survivability in the future. Missions traditionally performed by specialized aircraft — air-to-air combat, air-to-ground strikes, electronic attack, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance — can now be executed by a squadron of F-35s.

The Louisiana Offshore Oil Port (LOOP)

TANKER OFFLOADING

LOOP safely and efficiently offloads tankers of crude oil that are imported into the U.S. from the Arabian Gulf, Russia, West Africa, the North Sea, Mexico and South America. Many tankers that discharge their cargoes at LOOP are supertankers and are designated as either “very large crude carriers” (VLCCs) or “ultra large crude carriers” (ULCCs). These massive ships can be longer than the Empire State Building is tall.

In response to change US supply patterns, LOOP has made modifications to it’s mooring configuration to receive Jones Act compliant Medium Range (MR) tankers to receive cargoes from US ports. It also allows for FPSO shuttle tankers to deliver their cargo to LOOP.

The LOOP oil port and pipeline were specially constructed to accommodate these enormous vessels. Standing in 110 feet of water some 20 miles from land in the Gulf of Mexico, the LOOP Marine Terminal can comfortably accommodate tankers calling at the port.

Once anchored at one of the three single point mooring (SPM) buoys, hoses are attached to a ship’s manifold for offloading. Hi-tech, flexible hoses are attached to the ship’s manifold to receive and transport the crude oil. It is pumped from the ship in an underground pipeline.

Oil movement controllers from LOOP, in close communication with the ship, initiate the offloading of the vessel to the LOOP Marine Terminal where it is pumped into a 48-inch diameter pipeline to the LOOP storage facilities at a rate of up to 100,000 barrels per hour.

The oil arrives at the LOOP storage facility in Clovelly, Louisiana, some 45 miles from the marine terminal. There the oil is stored in a network of underground caverns and aboveground tanks. The LOOP marine terminal, pipeline and storage facilities reside in a Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) which provides opportunities for companies importing foreign crude oil to optimize their U.S. Customs duties.

L’allarme della Bbc: “Così il cambiamento climatico sta estinguendo le piante di caffè”

Il caffè potrebbe finire. A rivelarlo è uno studio scientifico, riportato dalla Bbc, che prova a fare una proiezione su quante piantagioni di caffè resteranno al mondo entro metà secolo.

Secondo gli esperti, a causa del riscaldamento globale, entro il 2050 saranno dimezzati i terreni dedicati alla coltura del caffé di qualità Arabica che rappresenta il 70% del caffé prodotto nel mondo.

Oggi vengono bevute 2 miliardi di tazzine di caffé al giorno, un ritmo che presto diventerà insostenibile per la scarsità di chicchi. La testata britannica cita i dati provenienti dalle colture dell’America Centrale, dove nel 2013 un’epidemia di parassiti ha fatto calare il raccolto del 20%. Un altro dato preoccupante arriva dalla Tanzania, invece, negli ultimi 50 anni ogni ettaro ha prodotto sempre meno caffé: dai 500 chili ai 300, e questo per il riscaldamento globale.

The US dentist who killed a lion in Zimbabwe should be extradited to face charges, Zimbabwe’s Environment Minister Oppah Muchinguri has said.

There has been a huge online backlash against Mr Palmer. The dental practice he runs in Minneapolis has been closed since he was named as the hunter who shot Cecil.
On Thursday, the White House said it would review a public petition to extradite the American dentist after more than 100,000 signed it.
But spokesman Josh Earnest said it was up to the US justice department to respond to any extradition order.

United States

 

SS United States is a luxury passenger liner built in 1952 for United States Lines designed to capture the trans-Atlantic speed record.

Built at a cost of $78 million, the ship is the largest ocean liner constructed entirely in the US, the fastest ocean liner to cross the Atlantic in either direction, and even in her retirement retains the Blue Riband given to the passenger liner crossing the Atlantic Ocean in regular service with the record highest speed.

Her construction was subsidized by the US government, since she was designed to allow conversion to a troop carrier should the need arise. United States operated uninterrupted in transatlantic passenger service until 1969. Since 1996 she has been docked at Pier 82 on the Delaware River in Philadelphia.

Boeing 777

The Boeing 777 is a family of long-range wide-body twin-engine jet airliners developed and manufactured by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. It is the world’s largest twinjet and has a typical seating capacity for 314 to 451 passengers, with a range of 5,235 to 9,380 nautical miles (9,695 to 17,372 km). Commonly referred to as the “Triple Seven”, its distinguishing features include the largest-diameter turbofan engines of any aircraft, six wheels on each main landing gear, fully circular fuselage cross-section, and a blade-shaped tail cone. Developed in consultation with eight major airlines, the 777 was designed to replace older wide-body airliners and bridge the capacity difference between Boeing’s 767 and 747. As Boeing’s first fly-by-wire airliner, it has computer-mediated controls. It is also the first entirely computer-aided designed commercial aircraft.

The 777 is produced in two fuselage lengths as of 2014. The original 777-200 variant entered commercial service in 1995, followed by the extended-range 777-200ER in 1997. The stretched 777-300, which is 33.25 ft (10.1 m) longer, followed in 1998. The longer-range 777-300ER and 777-200LR variants entered service in 2004 and 2006 respectively, while the 777F, a freighter version, debuted in February 2009; these variants all feature General Electric GE90 engines and extended raked wingtips. The earlier 777-200, -200ER and -300 versions are equipped with GE90, Pratt & Whitney PW4000, or Rolls-Royce Trent 800 engines. The 777-200LR is the world’s longest-range airliner, able to fly over halfway around the globe, and holds the record for the longest distance flown non-stop by a commercial aircraft.
