Hon Hanna-Martin shared with media it is in accordance with tradition; that as she opposed the party leader and lost it is conventional for one to withdraw from certain posts, hence her decision to vacate the Leader role in the House. Picewell Forbes, the MP for Mangrove Cay and South Andros now holds the post.

For the Liverpool manager, the lost in Belgrade in the Champions League will surely be analyzed by everybody; the Gunners play the Wolves todayLiverpool is currently sitting in the third position in the 2018-2019 English Premier League standings with 27 points, two points behind leader Manchester City.And manager Jurgen Klopp knows that his decisions are being analyzed every day by every fan and pundit in England.“We come into today’s game in a very healthy position in our domestic campaign, albeit I am not immune to some of the debate and discussion surrounding our current form or level of performance,” Klopp wrote on the Liverpool’s official website ahead of today’s match against Fulham.Report: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“I’ve been at this club and in this country long enough now to understand that a result like the one in Belgrade on Tuesday will lead to a lot of analysis, opinions offered and conclusions being drawn.”“This is absolutely fine of course and I understand that it even comes from those who genuinely care about our situation and have a desire to see us succeed,” he added.“To be clear: the performance against Red Star wasn’t at the levels we expect of ourselves. End of story.”

Explore further The 100 foot-high, one-megawatt Hammerfest Strom HS1000 is described as a “pre-commercial demonstrator.” The heavily instrumented turbine will continue to serve as an R&D platform and is already powering homes and businesses on Eday. The turbine can be monitored from the European Marine Energy Center base there; engineers can also operate and inspect the device from Glasgow using mobile connections and on-board camera.The HS1000 was developed by Andritz Hydro Hammerfest, as a “tidal power” turbine. As a version of a wind turbine positioned on the seabed, its blades spin in the flow of tides for generating power. A tidal turbine has shorter blades that rotate slower. The energy is converted in current directions by pitching the blades. The structure is designed as a tripod, which has a minimal footprint on the seabed and is held in place by gravity and additional ballast.Scotland, in the context of providing leadership in renewable energy, is eagerly exploring the concept of generating electricity from the natural movement of the tide. Scotland engineers consider it well placed to lead in turbine projects for clean, green electricity. Scotland is said to have superior tidal power resources, with a massive amount of power in its seas. Keith Anderson, CEO of Scottish Power Renewables, said the test gives them confidence to implement larger-scale projects. A 10MW tidal power array in the Sound of Islay is planned over the next few years Image: Andritz Hydro Hammerfest (Phys.org) — An underwater turbine being used for harnessing tidal power to generate electricity for homes and businesses has successfully completed its testing period in the island of Eday, one of Orkney’s northern isles. The machine marks the first to be used in Scotland’s ambitious tidal power project, with more turbines at more sites planned. Scottish Power Renewables (SPR) says that the completion of the test period is an encouraging step up in Scotland’s tidal power initiative. The turbine was lowered into position during winter storms as a test device to prove that the technology can operate efficiently in Scotland’s fast-flowing tides.

Namely, it is predictable. With its links to the lunar cycle, tidal currents can be predicted years in advance. A new Scottish Government report confirms Scotland’s commitment to generate 100 percent of its electricity needs from renewables and to “decarbonize” the electricity-generation sector by 2030.
