Denmark’s biggest commercial pensions provider PFA is buying three solar photovoltaic (PV) plants in England from Danish firm European Energy, which developed the power plants, in a deal that involves an option to buy three more.PFA, which manages DKK545bn (€73.2bn) in assets, said the investment was part of its new strategy of putting money directly into the green energy sector.Henrik Nøhr Poulsen, director at PFA Asset Management, said: “This is a very interesting investment, and it is one of the first steps in our new strategy, which, among other things, involves a greater focus towards direct investments in renewable energy.”He said the investment was the company’s first in solar energy, as well as its first direct investment in energy where it owned 100% of the business. He said the parks, with a 20-year guaranteed feed-in tariff, would help ensure a stable long-term return for PFA’s customers, involving low risk in the current low-interest-rate environment.PFA did not say exactly how much the deal was worth, only that it paid European Energy – which develops onshore wind and solar PV projects – something between DKK100,000 and DKK1m for the plants.The three solar parks have a total installed capacity of 15 MW, but the deal includes an option to buy three more plants, which would increase total installed capacity to 29 MW.“Both PFA and European Energy expect that the takeover of the remaining three parks will fall into place during the last six months of 2016,” PFA said.European Energy said the deal still depended on several normal conditions being fulfilled, including formal confirmation of the applicable feed-in tariff.One of the solar plants PFA has bought will supply electricity for Nissan’s Sunderland factory, which produces the Japanese firm’s electric car, Nissan Leaf, alongside other models.
Tweet Share Gentle exercise to kick-start your dayWhile exercise studies have shown that vigorous exercise in the morning can compromise the immune system, gentle activity helps to wake up the brain and body, mobilizing joints, activating the postural muscles and raising body temperature and heart rate. Here’s the realbuzz.com guide on how to successfully, and safely, exercise in the morning.This exercise workout sequence will take you just a few minutes – perform it on waking to start your day feeling energized.1. Before you even get out of bed, take a few deep breaths and have a stretch, right from the tips of the fingers to the toes.2. Now draw your knees into your chest and hug them. Drop your knees down to the left-hand side, taking your head over to the right; take a breath here, and as you exhale, bring the knees back through center and drop them to the right, taking the head to the left.3. Swing your legs off the bed and with feet hip distance apart and flat on the floor, drape your torso over your thighs, allowing arms to drop to the floor. Hang here for a moment then grasp your lower legs with your hands and pull up, so that you are rounding your back, and stretching through the shoulders. Release and roll back up to an upright position. Now link your hands together behind your back and straighten them, feeling a stretch across the chest and front of the shoulders. Hold for a moment and then release.4. Next, stand up and with feet below hips, begin to swing your arms around your body (left arm goes behind left hip while right arm crosses over the body, then reverse), allowing the torso and hips to rotate from side-to-side but keeping the tummy engaged. Let the head follow the movement, and keep it relaxed and rhythmical. Count to 30 while you do this.5. Now link your hands together and lift them overhead, with palms facing down. Keeping your tummy engaged and hips centred, drop your torso to the side, take a breath and then as you exhale, come back through center and drop to the other side.6. Next, grab your pillow and place it between your thighs, just above the knees. With weight evenly dispersed between heel and forefoot, bend the legs into a half-squat, squeezing the cushion and pressing the buttocks together. Pause for a couple of seconds, then stand up, rising up on to the balls of the feet, before lowering into the next repetition. Do this 10 times, squeezing the cushion throughout – you may feel a bit silly but this great exercise to wake up the large muscles in the legs and buttocks.7. Still standing tall, let your knees slightly bend and drop your arms by your sides. Take a breath and as you exhale, draw the chin to the chest and begin to roll forwards through the neck vertebrae, the upper back, the mid back and finally the lower back, until your head and arms are hanging down by your feet. Pause to take a breath and as you exhale, ‘rebuild’ the spine by rolling back up to a standing position. Imagine the spine is like a wheel turning. Do this three times, but on the last one, when you roll down, go all the way to the floor, bending the knees and taking your hands to the floor.8. Walk your hands out until you are lying flat on the floor, face down. You can rest your forehead on your hands. Keeping your hipbones pressing down into the floor, bring each foot alternately into the bottom and out straight again. Do this rhythmically, counting to 30.9. Next, push yourself back onto your hands and knees, so that you are on all fours, hands under shoulders, knees under hips. Gently pull in the tummy and round the back up, allowing the head to drop. Pause, then arch the back – lengthening it out as much as you can – and lifting the head. Repeat this three times and then rock back to your feet and keeping knees slightly bent, roll back up to standing.10. Give your shoulders a roll, shake out your arms and legs and go jump in the shower! Although you can’t really class this as a full-on workout, it’s a great way to start the day and prepare your body. So instead of taking a few minutes for that extra cup of coffee to give you the boost – energize with a bit of exercise! Try it tomorrow and see if it makes a difference to you and your day.Real Buzz Share Share Sharing is caring! HealthLifestyle Wake-up exercise workout by: – October 9, 2012 27 Views no discussions

The Indiana Department of Transportation will begin chip sealing along S.R. 121 Tuesday morning from S.R. 44 on the south side of Connersville to U.S. Highway 52.Maintenance crews hope to complete pavement operations along the 25 lane miles of north-south highway by midday Thursday, weather permitting.Flaggers will be on site to direct traffic around state workers and equipment.INDOT officials strongly advise motorists to drive with caution and at slow speeds on roads where chip seal has been freshly applied.Chip seal applications involve spraying liquid asphalt on the roadway, then topping it with small chips of limestone aggregate. This process extends service life of the highway by sealing pavement from moisture intrusion and ultraviolet ray degradation. In addition, chip seals improve safety for the motoring public by restoring a high coefficient of friction for added skid resistance.A fog seal will be placed atop the S.R. 121 surface at a later date.Chip seal/fog seal applications are extremely cost-effective for Hoosier tax payers. Experience shows that every $1 spent on this kind of surface treatment today saves $6 to $14 in expenditures later.

London: Novak Djokovic reached his fifth Wimbledon final on Saturday with a 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (11/9), 3-6, 10-8 victory over Rafael Nadal in the second longest semi-final ever played at the tournament.Djokovic, the 2011, 2014 and 2015 champion, will face Kevin Anderson, the first South African in the final in 97 years, for the title after a 5-hour 15-minute marathon.Victory on Sunday for the 31-year-old Serb would take his career Slam tally to 13, four behind Nadal but still seven back from Roger Federer.It was a second day of epic drama at the All England Club after Anderson had needed 6 hours and 36 minutes to beat John Isner on Friday.That set the record for the longest semi-final at the tournament and became the second longest Grand Slam singles match ever played.It also meant that Djokovic and Nadal had been unable to finish their 52nd career clash on Friday night.The Saturday drama delayed the start of the women’s final between Serena Williams and Angelique Kerber.“It’s hard to pick the words. I’m just going through things, flashbacks to the last 15 months, everything I’ve been through to get here,” said world number 21 Djokovic, the lowest ranked finalist in 15 years.“To win against the best player in the world, in one of the longest matches I ever played, I’m just overwhelmed.“It’s very special. It really could have gone either way. It was clear very few things separated us.” Djokovic finished with 23 aces and 73 winners and triumphed despite only converting four of 19 break points.“Until the last shot I didn’t know if I would win. These are matches you live for and work for,” he added.Friday curfew Former world number one Djokovic will take a 5-1 career lead over eight-seed Anderson into the final.The South African won his only match against the Serb in 2008 while Djokovic has beaten him twice at Wimbledon.“Hopefully we can first of all play!” an exhausted Djokovic said of his fellow marathon man.Anderson, who knocked out Federer in the quarter-finals, has been on court for 21 hours at the tournament.“He had a day off which means a lot. I wish I could have one, but it is what it is,” Djokovic said.“I’m in the final of Wimbledon. That’s an incredible achievement.” Djokovic had been in control on Friday, leading two sets to one when the match was halted due the 11pm (2200GMT) curfew.Play in their 52nd career meeting resumed under the roof on Saturday despite bright blue skies and temperatures pushing 30 degrees.Djokovic, the 12th seed, could not convert two break points in a 15-minute opening game of the fourth set.In front of the watching Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, Nadal made him pay.The sweat-soaked two-time champion held, broke and held again for 3-0.However, back roared Djokovic with a break and was soon back on level terms at 3-3.In a roller-coaster of a set, Nadal broke for 5-3 causing Djokovic to angrily smash his racquet into his feet four times.He was even angrier minutes later when he squandered three more break points to allow Nadal to level the semi-final with an ace.Djokovic wasted another three break points in the eighth game of the decider.Nadal then squandered three break points in the 15th game before saving a match point in the 16th with a pitch-perfect drop shot.However, the pressure of serving second was relentless and Djokovic wrapped up victory in the 18th game when Nadal speared a forehand wide.
