first_imgHarvard students and staff alike were drawn to Hasty Pudding’s Man of the Year, actor and writer Jason Segel, as he took a tour of the Harvard campus on today.The Radcliffe Pitches, Harvard’s oldest female a capella group, serenaded Segel on the steps of the Memorial Church, performing numbers such as “Orange-Colored Sky” and “Peel Me a Grape.” Segel, who sang a number of songs in last year’s film “The Muppets” — including “Man or Muppet,” which is nominated for an Academy Award for Original Song — appeared delighted by the surprise performance. During the final number, the Pitches’ signature song “You’d Be Surprised,” Segel even burst into a spontaneous waltz with soloist Haley Bennett ’13.“That was amazing!” Segel said at the end of the performance. “You guys sound fantastic; thank you so much.”When two students approached Segel to ask for a picture, he immediately agreed. “He’s just awesome,” said Alex Almore ’12, who snapped the picture with her phone. “We’re really excited that he’s here — and then we were so close!”“He seems like such a personable guy, so we didn’t think that he would reject us,” said Sarah Cirone ’14. “He was so nice.”Segel waved when he saw a woman in the window wearing a handmade field-goal post on top of her headband, in preparation of the upcoming Super Bowl. “That’s not just me, right?” Segel asked, laughing. “You guys see her, too?”At the John Harvard Statue, Segel interrupted the tour guide to ask if others also saw a woman in the window wearing a handmade field-goal post on top of her headband, in preparation of the upcoming Super Bowl. “That’s not just me, right?” Segel asked, laughing. “You guys see her, too?”Patriots fan and Harvard employee Elaine Cox, financial and executive assistant, then emerged from Harvard Hall to offer Segel a Harvard knit cap. “We have a Giants fan in our office, and I just wanted to tease her,” Cox said, laughing. “I didn’t get a picture (with Segel), but I did get a hug!”Shannon Inghram, assistant to the dean, had kept watch to see when Segel arrived at the statue. “He’s adorable,” Ingram said of Segel. “I saw him on ‘Saturday Night Live’ a few weeks back, and loved “The Muppets.’ He’s such a good writer and actor, and it was great to see him on campus.”Later this evening, the producers of the Hasty Pudding Theatricals, Jyotika Banga ’13 and Mary Jane Sakellariadis ’13, hosted a celebrity roast for Segel and presented him with his Pudding Pot in Farkas Hall.

Danes Track Offshore Wind Cost Slide

first_imgThe Danish Energy Agency has launched an updated levelized cost of energy (LCoE) calculator which shows that costs to build and operate an offshore wind farm in Denmark have declined by more than 30 per cent compared to previous projections.A combination of lower initial investment (CAPEX) and declining operational costs (OPEX), as well as technological improvements that allow new offshore wind projects to harvest more energy out of the wind at lower costs, are the main reasons for the decline in LCoE.The levelized cost of energy for a Danish offshore wind project is expected to have fallen to EUR 46 per MWh excluding grid and system costs with a production start in 2020, the new calculations show.Compared to previous assumptions, CAPEX is expected to have gone down by close to 40%. Also, improvement in operation and maintenance is expected to reduce OPEX by more than 20%. At the same time, improvement in wind and powertrain design is expected to increase the amount of full-load hours of Danish offshore wind projects by 10%, giving a capacity factor of more than 50%.The LCoE Calculator is a tool to estimate and compare the socio-economic electricity production costs in a simplified manner using localized data and estimates. The tool is designed for policymakers, energy regulators and planners.last_img read more

Jack Grealish dropped and rebuked by Aston Villa boss Remi Garde

first_img Press Association Manager Remi Garde said the 20-year-old was “not professional” after he was pictured partying last weekend after Villa’s 4-0 Barclays Premier League defeat to Everton. Grealish has since been training with the Villa under-21 side and will continue to do so, Garde said at a Thursday morning press conference. Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish will be left out of the squad for Saturday’s match against Watford as punishment for his off-field behaviour. Garde’s predecessor, Tim Sherwood, warned Grealish about his behaviour after the Tenerife incident telling him that he had to ”knuckle down”, while Garde had already said he felt the winger was not playing at the level he should be. Grealish has struggled for form this season with Villa bottom of the Premier League heading into Saturday’s home game against Watford at Villa Park. Grealish has scored just one goal this season, in the 3-2 defeat at Leicester on September 13, and he has not completed the full 90 minutes of any game since the 2-0 lost at Chelsea on October 17. “He won’t be included in the squad for Watford,” said Garde. “(His actions) are not of the professional standard that I expect from my players. That is why Jack is training in the under-21 team.” ”Sometimes, players in every country ask to stay in the city where we are playing. It is not a problem for me, it can happen once or twice during a season. ”The problem for me was not him not being on the bus. ”He is not playing at the weekend and at this stage, I think that is enough. ”Jack has got a lot of ability but he needs to improve his game and work at it.” This is not the first time that Grealish has breached club discipline. The youngster was pictured earlier this year laid on his back in the street during a holiday in Tenerife, for which he was reprimanded by Aston Villa. He has also been pictured partying in Marbella and seen inhaling nitrous oxide, known as laughing gas or ‘hippy crack’, from a balloon in a photograph taken last year. last_img read more

Trump Threatens To Force Congress To Adjourn

first_imgTrump said pro forma sessions are a scam and a dereliction of duty. (Washington, DC) — We are four months away from the 2020 Presidential election and the current president still has not gotten more than one hundred appointments past Congress. Many of whom are instrumental in helping the country handle the COVID-19 outbreak.Yesterday, President Trump said he has the authority to force Congress to adjourn so he can make the crucial appointments. In a White House briefing, Trump urged the Senate to stop gaveling-in pro-forma sessions when lawmakers aren’t in town. That would allow him to make recess appointments without those officials being approved by the Senate. Trump railed against the “partisan” obstructionism he said had held up 129 appointments who could all be helping in the coronavirus response.“It’s always roadblocks or a waste of time,” he said. “If the House will not agree to that adjournment, I will exercise my constitutional authority to adjourn both chambers of Congress.”“The current practice of leaving town while conducting phony pro forma sessions is a dereliction of duty that the American people cannot afford during this crisis,” he said.“It is a scam what they do,” Trump said.Pres. Trump threatens to adjourn both chambers of Congress so he can make appointments to fill vacant positions and judicial slots.“If they don’t act on getting these people approved,” Trump says, he will have to do something “that I prefer not doing.”— ABC News (@ABC) April 15, 2020last_img read more

First home defeat for Bees boss

first_imgBrentford 0 Tranmere 2Having made such an encouraging start to the season, Brentford were brought down to earth by a surprise home defeat.Uwe Rosler’s side had much of the possession, but Tranmere took their chances and condemned the German to his first loss at Griffin Park, with goals from Robbie Weir and Andy Robinson.AdChoices广告Weir struck first, heading home the impressive Robinson’s 29th-minute cross.Rovers’ lead was preserved when goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams denied Clayton Donaldson after a mistake by defender Mark McChrystal had left the Bees striker through on goal.Gary Alexander came desperately close to equalising with a volley that struck the bar, and had that gone in Brentford may well have gone on to win the game.But they were unable to find that all-important goal and were hit with a sucker punch when Robinson’s superb 25-yarder flew past keeper Richard Lee.It was a killer blow for Brentford, who were thwarted again by a late double-save from Fon Williams, who did brilliantly to stop Donaldson’s shot and then kept out Alexander’s follow-up.last_img read more
