With the addition of Bethesda Softworks, Vantiv Entertainment Solutions, Greybox and Snail Games, the US trade group representing the game industry now boasts 32 members.”Our newest members are true industry innovators, leading the development of exciting new content and new opportunities to reach and engage consumers,” ESA president and CEO Michael Gallagher said. “These highly creative companies represent the broad range of our industry’s offerings, and we look forward to collaborating with them to move our industry forward.”Related JobsSenior Game Designer – UE4 – AAA United Kingdom Amiqus GamesProgrammer – REMOTE – work with industry veterans!

In 2008, id Software left the group but offered little in the way of explanation. The following year, Bethesda parent ZeniMax Media acquired the Doom developer, with Bethesda assuming publisher duties for the id catalog of titles.”ESA has a long-standing tradition of representing the computer and video game industry at the highest level on important policy issues,” said ZeniMax Media CEO and chairman Robert Altman. “We’re proud to join the association that is the leader in promoting the development and growth of the video game industry.”The addition of four new companies to the ESA offsets the loss of two long-time members earlier this year in the form of Sega and Daybreak Game Company (formerly Sony Online Entertainment).Celebrating employer excellence in the video games industry8th July 2021Submit your company Sign up for The Daily Update and get the best of GamesIndustry.biz in your inbox.

Exosun expands tracking operations in South Africa

first_imgExosun expands tracking operations in South AfricaThe French company, a leading provider of solar tracking technologies for utility-scale ground-mounted solar plants, says it is committed to local manufacturing of its trackers, “in full aligment with the South African local content policy.” January 26, 2015 Edgar Meza Installations Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share South Africa’s booming PV sector continues to create growing opportunities for European companies. French tracking technologies provider Exosun is expanding internationally with the opening of a subsidiary in Cape Town, South Africa. Exosun South Africa’s local team will provide sales and engineering support as well as training on installation and operation and maintenance (O&M) of its products. The company said it was committed to local manufacturing of its trackers in full aligment with South Africa’s local content policy. After deploying 230 MW of solar tracking systems in Europe and the Americas, Exosun is now entering the South African market, which the company said was “booming thanks to the country’s rapid economic development and increased electricity needs.” “By establishing a subsidiary in Cape Town, we are able to optimally serve our customers based in South Africa with top-notch tracking systems and services adapted to their specific needs,” said Paula Korkie, Exosun’s business development manager in South Africa. “We are also developing partnerships with South African manufacturers to ensure high quality local production and reduce transportation costs.” Exosun co-founder and CEO Frédéric Conchy added, “In this region with high solar irradiation levels, there is a significant market for solar trackers and it was important for us to build our presence here. We are confident that our technology, scalable and adaptable to all project and land types, will answer the needs of local and international PV plant developers, owners and operators in South Africa and the surrounding countries.” In France, Exosun recently signed deals with three major renewable energy players to supply trackers for four new brownfield PV plants totaling 20 MW.Popular content The Hydrogen Stream: 20 MW green hydrogen plant in Finland, two Australian projects move forward Sergio Matalucci 20 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy want to set up a 20 MW blue hydrogen production facility in the U.K. Australia’s Origin Energy wants to build a hy… Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

Hoboken council OKs measure opposing Sacco, Stack’s Palisade Cliffs Protection Act

first_img Previous articleJersey City Police Chief Kelly set to retire next month after over three decades of serviceNext articleProsecutor: Jersey City man charged with sexually assaulting an 11-year-old boy John Heinis RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Bayonne man busted with cocaine, heroin, semi-automatic handgun after fleeing from cops By John Heinis – January 7, 2021 6:47 pm 0 ” … Such legislation would have a significant and negative impact on the City of Hoboken, which would be affected in its entirety, by considerably constraining the city’s ability to address critical transportation, infrastructure, housing, and education investment needs.”The resolution also says that if the bill became a law, the Hoboken Rail Yards Redevelopment Plan, North Hudson Sewerage Authority, and Hoboken Housing Authority could all face negative consequences. Bayonne 3rd Ward Councilman Mike Russo called for the resolution to be tabled for two weeks to enable the council to have a conversation with their legislators, in particular Assemblywoman Annette Chaparro (D-33), one of the sponsors in the lower house.However, 6th Ward Councilwoman Jen Giattino, who was elected vice president earlier in the evening and the other co-sponsor of the resolution, said she thought time was of the essence and thought the vote should happen as soon as possible.The local legislation passed 5-1(2), with Russo voting no and Councilmen Phil Cohen and James Doyle abstaining. Councilwoman-at-Large Vanessa Falco was absent.“These bills will devastate Hoboken for the benefit of just a few property owners in Union City. Hoboken partners with developers on redevelopments that often include developer-funded infrastructure and resiliency upgrades, municipal and educational investments, and transportation improvements,” Fisher said this afternoon.“These proposed bills do not protect against overdevelopment or even the character of Hoboken. What they do is put the full burden of paying for critical upgrades solely on the backs of Hoboken taxpayers.”Elected leaders from Jersey City, Weehawken, West New York, Guttenberg, Fort Lee, Englewood Cliffs, Tenafly, and Alpine were all slated to receive a copy of the approved resolution, the measure says.“Hoboken only has 1.4 square miles and we have to work resourcefully within these land constraints to address the needs of our growing population,” said Giattino.“New Jersey is a home rule state and Hoboken’s future should not be determined by anyone other than the residents of Hoboken and the city leaders they elect.”In a joint statement, the two councilwomen said that previous developments in both North Bergen and Union City have caused portions of the Palisades to be “gutted entirely.”In an interview with HCV last month, Sacco said the legislation had nothing specifically to do with Hoboken and is about keeping development responsible along the waterfront.Hoboken spokesman Vijay Chaudhuri said that Mayor Ravi Bhalla has been working on attaining a favorable outcome for Hoboken behind the scenes.“Mayor Bhalla has been working cooperatively, behind the scenes with our neighboring cities and elected officials on matters of development,” he said.“He is committed to ensuring Hoboken continues to grow in a manner consistent with the scale, charm and character that makes it a great place to live and looks forward to amicably resolving any outstanding issues.”The bill sponsors could not be reached for comment on Thursday.

By John Heinis/Hudson County View“What prompted this specifically tonight is that I found out late yesterday this was potentially going to [a senate] committee,” 2nd Ward Councilwoman Tiffanie Fisher, who co-sponsored the emergency resolution, said at last night’s meeting.She said that while she has not been in contact with the Edgewater mayor or council, the  Bergen County borough is the only municipality besides Hoboken that would face a direct impact from the bill – which calls for no development on the cliffs that could exceed 10 feet below the surface of the road, as HCV first reported.The resolution contends that the bill takes away Hoboken’s “home rule.” Bayonne man pepper sprayed, arrested after punching cop in the face, authorities say Bayonne Bayonne CarePoint Health reaches deal for Cigna Health Insurance to join their network Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

National studies by MENTOR and Big Brothers Big Sisters demonstrate that youth with mentors are less likely to engage in risky behavior with drugs and alcohol, and they are more likely to develop positive relationships with peers and adults and pursue college and other post-secondary opportunities.Based on the 2019 Vermont Mentoring Surveys, more than 66 percent of middle and high school youth supported by mentoring programs in Vermont feel like they matter to people in their community, and more than 86 percent of mentors play a direct role in their mentee’s education.About MENTOR Vermont: MENTOR Vermont (formerly known as Mobius) supports 140 adult-to-youth mentoring program sites that serve 2,300 mentor pairs throughout the state. In addition to awarding grant funding to youth mentoring programs, the organization provides technical support to mentoring program staff, maintains an online program directory and referral system for volunteers, manages a quality-based program management database, raises public awareness of mentoring, works with programs to ensure they are meeting best practices, and leads statewide mentoring initiatives.

The 2019-2020 Vermont Mentoring Grants will support more than 100 new and existing program sites, and more than 1,800 adult-to-youth mentor pairs in communities across Vermont.“MENTOR Vermont and our funding partners are excited to be able to continue supporting the amazing work that mentoring programs and their mentors are doing to support youth in their local communities,” said Chad Butt, executive director of MENTOR Vermont. “Together we are building toward a future in which every young person in Vermont has the supportive mentoring relationships they need to grow and develop into thriving, productive, and engaged adults.”The Vermont Mentoring Grants are made possible each year through funding support from the A.D. Henderson Foundation and the Vermont Department for Children and Families. The 2019-2020 grants will provide continuing support for established programs that demonstrate they meet best practices and help expand mentoring programming in underserved regions of the state.All 2019-2020 grantees have committed to being partners in the Vermont K-12 Mentoring Initiative, a multi-year project, spearheaded by MENTOR Vermont, to establish the statewide program infrastructure needed to allow youth the opportunity to be matched with a mentor from elementary school until they successfully enter adulthood.Additionally, grantees beyond their first two years of operation are required to demonstrate that they are meeting best practices through the Quality Mentoring System (a program assessment system developed by MENTOR Vermont and MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership). Grantees will also continue to use common questions from the Vermont Mentoring Surveys to survey their mentors and mentees.Through the 2019-2020 Vermont Mentoring Grants, MENTOR Vermont has awarded 25 grants to agencies, schools and districts/supervisory unions, and independent non-profits throughout the state, including:Statewide: The DREAM Program; Everybody Wins!
