Nuclear plant management becomes strategic business

first_img Suitors for halted Bellefonte nuclear project ask TVA to consider climate in reviving sale That is, it is the “potential additional value-increased power generation and reduced costs, while maintaining high levels of safe operation-that could be obtained from an average nuclear plant if it could be operated at the performance levels attained by the best nuclear plant operators in the country.” Schoenberger and Cudlin believe the new era of competition in generation requires NYPA to rethink “… the paradigm that it is best able to provide value through direct management of its nuclear plants.” Consistent with the NYPA view, Don Hintz, Entergy Operations Inc. president and CEO, said in the August issue of Electric Light & Power, “The handful of companies that will emerge as the nuclear operators will be the ones that demonstrate consistently high performance, safety performance, operating performance and cost performance.” Entergy Operations has successfully operated a fleet of five nuclear units and all have shown significant improvement since coming under Entergy Operations` management. Entergy Operations intends to exploit the opportunities to utilize its nuclear plant management expertise. In May, Entergy filed an application with the Securities and Exchange Commission (required under the Public Utility Holding Company Act of 1935) to pursue new business opportunities in the nuclear field. Specifically, Entergy plans to establish an unregulated subsidiary to provide nuclear plant management to non-affiliated companies. “It may be surprising to see the words `nuclear` and `growth` together in a headline unless it`s in an article about the Pacific Rim,” said Hintz. “There is, however, a potential for growth for some nuclear operators.” By chloecox – Facebook Twitter Facebook New Jersey utility regulators extend zero-carbon breaks for PSEG nuclear power plants No posts to display Previous articlePE Volume 100 Issue 10Next articlePE Volume 100 Issue 11 chloecox In the June 1996 issue of The Electricity Journal, Robert Schoenberger, New York Power Authority (NYPA) president and CEO, and Robert Cudlin of PRISM Consulting discuss what they term stranded value associated with nuclear power plants. They define stranded value as the antithesis of stranded cost. Nuclear Linkedin 10.1.1996 On July 31 the two strategies merged as NYPA and Entergy announced a memorandum of understanding as the first step toward a contract for Entergy to provide management services to NYPA`s two nuclear plants. The new era of competition in power generation is supposed to bring about efficiencies by forcing companies to focus on what they do best. This appears to be an early example of such a change. TAGSNYPAPE Volume 100 Issue 10 Linkedin Nuclear plant managementbecomes strategic business Optimizing Plant Performance: The April POWERGEN+ series activates today Nuclear plant management becomes strategic business RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Competition in power generation is leading many in the utility industry to rethink their business strategies. Owners of nuclear stations are particularly fearful of being stuck with huge stranded investments in these plants and are seeking innovative ways to prevent that from happening. Other nuclear operators are finding opportunities among the threats to the status quo. Here is a recent example. JOHN C. ZINK, Ph.d., p.gif., managing editor Nuclear power Twitterlast_img

“Rounding the Bases” in Orioles’ 6-4 win over Indians

first_imgWho stood out in the Orioles’ 6-4 win over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday afternoon?In the spirit of hockey’s “three stars” system with the addition of home plate for honorable mentions and other notes, we go around the bases after the 48th game of the 2016 season.1st — Darren O’Day couldn’t have inherited a much worse spot in the eighth with runners on second and third and no outs and the Orioles clinging to a one-run lead. Instead of wilting under the pressure, the 2015 All-Star reliever proceeded to retire Mike Napoli on a grounder to third and strike out both Lonnie Chisenhall and Yan Gomes swinging to end the inning with the lead intact. Manager Buck Showalter revealed after the game that he was trying to stay away from his reliever because he was under the weather, but O’Day couldn’t have come up bigger for the Orioles on Sunday.2nd — Hyun Soo Kim picked the perfect time for his first major league homer, hammering a Jeff Manship fastball into the right-field seats to give Baltimore a 5-4 lead in the seventh. In what was his fifth consecutive start, the South Korean outfielder continued to take advantage of his increased opportunities by also drawing a walk out of the second spot in the order. We still don’t know whether Kim can be an everyday player in the majors, but his .383 average and .463 on-base percentage have provided quite the argument for Showalter to continue penciling his name into the lineup.3rd — Mark Trumbo provided the immediate lift that the Orioles needed after Saturday’s deflating loss by crushing a three-run double off rookie Mike Clevinger in the top of the first inning. After scuffling for much of the road trip, Trumbo hit a big two-run blast on Friday and drove in half of the Orioles’ runs on Sunday to close out the weekend series at Progressive Field.Home — Nolan Reimold hit his fourth homer of the season in the top of the ninth off former Oriole Tommy Hunter to make it a 6-4 game. Considering Zach Britton allowed back-to-back singles to begin the bottom of the ninth, Reimold’s homer provided some much-needed breathing room. … Britton quickly settled down to collect his 14th save in as many tries this season. … Despite allowing a season-high three homers on the afternoon, Tillman collected his seventh win of the year. … In his 66th plate appearance of the season, Ryan Flaherty hit a sacrifice fly in the fourth for his first RBI of 2016. … It was downright ugly at times, but the Orioles could feel better about a 4-5 road trip with Sunday’s win to give them series wins in two of the three cities in which they played. … Baltimore returns to Camden Yards on Monday afternoon to take on the first-place Boston Red Sox with Tyler Wilson scheduled to take on knuckleballer Steven Wright.last_img read more

Updated: You Can’t Keep ‘Em Down: Boxee Brings Hulu Back

first_imgRelated Posts Just a few weeks ago, we reported that Hulu had pulled all of its content from Boxee, a popular cross-platform media player. However, as one could almost expect, Boxee, which has yet to work out a new deal with Hulu, found an easy workaround and Hulu’s content is now back on Boxee. The company now simply routes Hulu’s public RSS feeds to a new feed reader plugin in Boxee. Update: Looks like we were wrong about Hulu’s ability to keep Boxee down. According to a statement on Boxee’s blog, Hulu has now blocked Boxee’s browser from accessing the service.Update 2 (8:20pm PST): According to the latest Twitter update from Boxee, Hulu on Boxee should now be working again, but at least for us, that was not yet the case. Clearly, Hulu and Boxee are currently playing a cat-and-mouse game, which is really a shame, because both companies are offering great services. Hulu is probably under a lot of pressure from its licensing partners to prevent Boxee from being able to display their content on a TV screen (of course, for quite a few users, that line is already completely blurred anyway). In the long run, this is going to only make Hulu and its partners look foolish, but for now, the game continues…Boxee also released a new version of its player today, which includes a new application store (the ‘App Box’) that allows users to easily install new apps and plugins. Boxee’s application is now also able to auto-update itself whenever a new version is released.Hulu is BackWe had a chance to test Boxee‘s new Hulu integration today, and while it is billed as a workaround and not quite as pretty as Boxee’s previous implementation, it actually turned out to be a very workable solution. All the shows are lined up in alphabetical order and while Boxee clearly overlays its own user interface over the Hulu flash player, you actually have to look very closely to see this. Tags:#RSS Readers#Video Services#web 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market App BoxThe main addition to Boxee’s feature line-up in this new version, however, is the new built-in app store/plugin repository. Unlike other app stores, Boxee uses a model that is similar to that of many Linux distributions: Boxee lets you add your own repositories to the mix, so that you are never locked in to the service’s official selection of application. We can’t help but wonder if this won’t allow some enterprising developers to create another Hulu app that replicates Boxee’s old Hulu integration.

LPM Insider Survey Results: Most Believe LP Did Not Use Excessive Force

first_imgAs reported recently in LPM Insider’s Breaking News, a widely circulated online video has fueled debate over whether a loss prevention associate used excessive force in an encounter with a 16-year-old girl accused of shoplifting.According to police, the loss prevention representative approached two female teenagers as they attempted to leave the store with “miscellaneous items” they allegedly tried to take from the store without payment. When they were approached, one of the teenagers began kicking and punching the loss prevention representative, later biting him on the chest, before being taken to the ground as the loss prevention representative attempted to subdue the alleged shoplifter. The other teenager fled the scene.Roughly 10 – 12 other customers gathered around the area and shouted at the loss prevention representative throughout the incident. Much of the altercation was captured on video, which can be viewed here.- Sponsor – Many have taken issue with the video’s depiction of how the loss prevention representative handled the situation, accusing him of being too rough with the juvenile. Others have criticized those seen watching the altercation, while still others are defending the loss prevention representative’s actions as warranted given the circumstances.What do you think? Was the loss prevention representative justified in his actions, or was excessive force used as he tried to subdue the shoplifter?Survey ResultsThe nature of the apprehension process always has the potential to lead to volatile situations, which is why it’s critically important to follow your training and abide by company policies.Approximately 63% of those surveyed believe the LP representative’s actions were justified based on the situation. By the same respect, 15 percent believe that the LP representative should have allowed the shoplifter to leave when she resisted.Contrarily, just 2 percent believe that while the LP representative has the right to defend himself, excessive force was used. Another 4 percent feel that the actions of the LP representative were inappropriate and excessive force was used.Others feel that they still need more information, with 16 percent indicating that they are not sure based on what was seen in the video.Here is a sampling of your comments:“Since the entire video, from the approach to apprehension isn’t seen it’s hard to say with absolute certainty. What I do find disturbingly normal in today’s society is that not one of the bystanders yells at the shoplifting subject to stop fighting. they just seem to focus on the LP agent and yell at him to let her go. I have been in similar situations and it boggles my mind that society’s initial reaction is to blame the agent, or police and never the wrong-doer.”“When a suspect begins punching, kicking and ultimately biting you it becomes a matter of self-defense. Without knowing medical issues or diseases the subject could have infected the officer with after biting him, they should be detained for examination and identification.”“The best course of action probably would have been to let her go as someone, whether the shoplifter, the LP person, or a customer could have been hurt. However, this was absolutely not an excessive use of force.”“If the LP Rep had tried to let her leave and she continued to try to fight him, then these actions were completely justified.”“Store management needed to have helped more. The shoplifter could have been removed to a back area of the store to wait for police.”“Looks to me more like the two of them stumbled to the ground rather than the LP guy “taking her to the ground”. While no one will agree that aggressive action is the best action. I would by no means call this excessive force, especially in light of the teenager’s aggression.”“First off, the video is inconclusive. It only shows what happened in the middle of the whole ordeal. Should the LP just let her go? Yes, he should have, but we also have the right to defend ourselves. To have a shoplifter come out kicking and swinging after simply being approached is going to set a ton of emotions into play that many people might not be prepared to handle.” “Where do we draw the line on self-defense vs. excessive force? Once again, this is the issue with our society today—if you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime. Stop making excuses for punks that break the law!”“The video is misleading. It does not show the initial contact between the LP representative and the shoplifter. There isn’t enough information from this video to make an informed observation. Anyone who says otherwise is incorrect.”“Good Work!” “The actions of some the “bystanders” in the video should also be questioned.”“Defending oneself is one thing but the minute things became combative and with all the attention due to shoppers and employees—and especially with the scene being caused—he should have immediately disengaged and allowed her to leave.”“This is why I left the industry. No matter what wisdom this LP agent used to address this threat, he will be patronized by the media and disciplined by his management—all for doing his job!”Do you have any additional thoughts?
