Microsoft refused to sell Fable IP – Report

North West Amiqus GamesJunior Video Editor – GLOBAL publisher United Kingdom Amiqus GamesDiscover more jobs in games The outlet cites multiple sources with news that Microsoft heard from a number of potential buyers during Lionhead’s mandatory consultation period, with one of the sources saying deals ultimately didn’t go through because Microsoft would not include the Fable IP with the studio sale. That same source claimed there were offers in the hundreds of millions of dollars, but “90% of the people interested just walked away” once it became clear Microsoft wanted to hold on to the action-role-playing game franchise.It was not the first time Lionhead’s hopes rested on an acquisition going through. In 2006, the then-independent studio was struggling after its PC games The Movies and Black & White 2 underperformed, resulting in 50 developers being laid off and studio co-founder Peter Molyneux beginning a search for a buyer. The developer also had multiple interested parties then, with Microsoft reportedly beating out Ubisoft and adding a Lionhead above its mantle. The acquisition talks did not turn out as well this time; Lionhead’s last day of operations was April 29.Celebrating employer excellence in the video games industry8th July 2021Submit your company Sign up for The Publishing & Retail newsletter and get the best of GamesIndustry.biz in your inbox.

Jordan: mosques and universities embrace solar

first_imgJordan: mosques and universities embrace solarA staggering 2,000 Jordanian mosques and a long list of Jordanian universities agree to electrify using solar PV, adding to the march of the technology within the Middle Eastern country. April 12, 2016 Ilias Tsagas Installations Markets Markets & Policy Share Of the 6,300 mosques across Jordan, an astonishing 2,000 of them are planning to rely on electricity generated through solar panels, government officials announced last week. It is a reduction of the country’s initial plan to install solar PV on the rooftops of about 6,000 Jordanian mosques, nevertheless the news is a positive sign that Jordan’s rooftop PV sector is thriving.Currently, there are about 400 mosques relying on solar energy to cover their power needs, said the same government official. An additional 1,600 mosques also have high electricity bills, making the PV investment worthwhile.The project to power the country’s mosques with solar PV is a collaboration between the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources and the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs, and will be funded with JD4 million (US$5.6 million) from the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Fund (JREEEF). JREEEF is managed by Jordan’s Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources and has funded similar urban and rural net metering schemes in the country.According to the available information, the JREEEF funds will cover half of the mosques’ expenditure for the PV systems and the other half is expected to be donated by charities.Systems ranging between 2 to 3 kW are expected to be installed on each mosque. For large consumers like mosques, a 2 kW net metering PV investment can be paid off in as little as two years.Solar PV’s strongest Jordanian ally: the universitiesLast month, pv magazine revealed that Jordan’s Al-Hussein Bin Talal University signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with local FB Group to build a 50 MW solar PV farm on university land and a 3 MW net-metering system also on university premises.Al-Hussein Bin Talal University is not alone, Samer Zawaydeh, a Jordan-based freelance engineering consultant, told pv magazine. “Public universities are working on developing a balanced budget instead of relying on government support. And a solar PV project is one of the main solutions to achieve this goal”, said Zawaydeh. “Jordanian Universities will soon run on clean energy with net zero electricity consumption, while large universities with enough land will be able to develop power purchase agreements (PPAs) for twenty years and sell the generated power to the grid, just like the Al-Hussein Bin Talal University plans”, he added.The following is a list of Jordanian universities that have embraced solar technology and have added, are in the process of adding, or have agreed to add PV capacity. The list is compiled by Zawaydeh’s consultancy.8.39 MW of operation PV projects:0.276 MW at Al-Ahliyya Amman University0.164 MW at Al-Zaytoonah University1.5 MW at Amman Arab University1.5 MW at Applied Science University (private)0.25 MW at Arab Open University1.5 MW at Petra University0.7 MW at Philadelphia University0.079 MW at Balqa Applied University0.5 MW at Jadara University0.03 MW at Tafila Technical University1.89 MW at Zarqa University (private)9.98 MW of PV projects under construction:Popular content Submarine cable to connect 10.5 GW wind-solar complex in Morocco to the UK grid Emiliano Bellini 22 April 2021 pv-magazine.com UK-based Xlinks is planning to build 10.5 GW of wind and solar in Morocco and sell the power generated by the huge plant in the UK.

Eric Lamaze Enjoys Homecoming at Spruce Meadows Masters

first_img Email* We’ll send you our regular newsletter and include you in our monthly giveaways. PLUS, you’ll receive our exclusive Rider Fitness digital edition with 15 exercises for more effective riding. SIGN UP Fresh off his bronze medal win at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, Canada’s Eric Lamaze has arrived in Calgary, AB, to contest the CSIO5* Spruce Meadows ‘Masters’ tournament running September 7-11, 2016. He is joined by fellow Rolex Testimonees Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum (GER), Steve Guerdat (SUI) and Scott Brash (GBR), who made history at last year’s ‘Masters’ tournament by becoming the first athlete to win the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping.Lamaze, who credits his success at the 2016 Olympic Games to his preparation at the Spruce Meadows ‘Summer Series’, will face another star-studded field when he contests the $2 million CP International, presented by Rolex, on Sunday, September 11.“It is a big weekend here; we are going to jump the same fences we jumped at the Olympics, and it’s the same level of competition,” said Lamaze, who added an individual bronze to the individual gold and team silver won at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. “You don’t come into Spruce Meadows taking things lightly.”Spectators at last year’s Spruce Meadows ‘Masters’ witnessed history in the making as Brash became the first athlete to win the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping riding Hello Sanctos. The pair won at CHI Geneva (SUI) followed by a second victory at CHIO Aachen (GER) before handling the pressure to win at Spruce Meadows and claim the unprecedented €1 million bonus offered to any rider able to win all three grand prix events in succession.“What we saw last year with the Rolex Grand Slam was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen in this venue,” said Lamaze, who was a two-time winner of the CP International in 2007 and 2011 with the legendary Hickstead. “I have been part of many exciting things that have happened at Spruce Meadows over the years, but this was one of the very best moments that I have witnessed. I know what it’s like to win this grand prix, and it’s not easy. We saw something that was truly incredible.”At this year’s Spruce Meadows ‘Masters’ tournament, Philip Weishaupt (GER) is the live contender, having won the last leg of the Rolex Grand Slam at CHIO Aachen. Lamaze considers the German and his partner, LB Convall, one of the riders to beat come Sunday.“I think his horse jumped very well here in the summer, and it went on to Aachen to win the Rolex Grand Slam where it jumped incredible,” said Lamaze. “I believe he is one of the favourites to win this, and I think he has his eye on the prize. We’re going to see great sport.”While Lamaze’s Olympic partner, Fine Lady 5, is enjoying a well-deserved rest following Rio, he has three horses in the stable for this weekend’s main event. Check Picobello Z is the most experienced while Chacco Kid and Houston are also proving themselves at the top level.“I think we’re going to get a nice welcome home,” said Lamaze, who is competing on Canadian soil for the first time following the Olympic Games. “The public appreciated what we did there – we brought home a medal from the Olympics – so I think we will be very well-received!“Spruce Meadows is unique,” concluded Lamaze, who is the all-time money winner at Spruce Meadows, where Rolex has been the official timekeeper since 1989. “The arena is magical on the weekend when there are 60,000 people here; as a rider it is such a special moment to hear the crowd cheer. There is nothing else like it.”Whatever the outcome, top sport is guaranteed at the Spruce Meadows ‘Masters’.

Mollie Tibbett’s father: ‘We can get her home’

first_imgFacebook(BROOKLYN, Iowa) — The father of missing University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts said on Monday that he believes his daughter may be with someone who misunderstood her intentions and created a situation that’s spiraling out of control.“It’s totally speculation,” Rob Tibbetts said, in an interview for ABC’s “Nightline,” “but I do believe that Mollie is with someone who she knows, probably someone who cares about her. But that relationship was misguided, misinterpreted and went wrong, and I think they’re in a place with Mollie and don’t know how to get themselves out of this horrible situation.”Rob Tibbetts said that as the search for Mollie continues, it’s also important to give that individual “the freedom and the space to process this, and to get themselves out of this amount of trouble because they get into a deeper amount of trouble.”His daughter’s kindness, compassion and outgoing personality may have simply given someone the wrong idea, he continued.“I do really believe that what happened to Mollie wasn’t someone that set out to harm her,” Rob Tibbetts said. “I think because they haven’t found Mollie, that Mollie is still some place, and we can get her home.”The 20-year-old Tibbetts went missing July 18. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been donated to establish a reward fund to help bring her home. Since Thursday, Rob Tibbetts said, almost 500 new leads and tips have surfaced, thanks to local authorities and to Crimestoppers. Mollie Tibbetts, a rising sophomore, was living in Brooklyn, Iowa, with her boyfriend, Dalton Jack, when she went for a jog and hasn’t been seen since. Her story, according to her father, has “struck a chord” with so many because “everyone has a daughter or a sister or a girlfriend like Mollie.” And her disappearance “is so random and senseless and scary that people have adopted Mollie and her story.”When asked what he would say to anyone who may have taken her, Rob Tibbetts responded: “You’ve made a mistake. We’ve all made mistakes. Don’t compound this. Work your way through this. Listen to Mollie.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Landlord to bar owner: You don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here

first_imgNeir’s Tavern (Credit: Google Maps)The oldest bar in the city is the latest to close its doors after a rent hike.Neir’s Tavern in Woodhaven, Queens has operated continuously in the same place for 190 years, the oldest bar in the city to do so. But the bar’s long reign as a community hub came to an abrupt end when its landlord, Henry Shi, raised the monthly rent to $3,000 from $2,000 and said it would rise again to $5,000, according to the New York Times.Shi bought the building in 2018 for $1.3 million. When the Times contacted his firm about the matter, Shi said, “Do not call this number again,” before hanging up.The bar will officially close on Sunday.Mayor Bill de Blasio, however, said he’s going to try to prevent that from happening. The owner of Neir’s Tavern, Loycent Gordon, called into the mayor’s weekly radio segment on WNYC.ADVERTISEMENTDe Blasio said he would get the commissioner of the city’s Department of Small Business Services to see if he could assist the bar, Crain’s reported.According to local historians, Neir’s Tavern opened before Queens officially became a part of New York City in 1898 and even weathered the Prohibition Era by operating as a speakeasy. An attempt in 2015 to landmark the interior of the neighborhood watering hole failed.Neir’s is hardly the first beloved bar to close due to rent hikes — Hogs and Heifers in the Meatpacking District closed in 2015 and Schiller’s on the Lower East Side closed its doors in 2017. Coogans, a staple of Washington Heights in Upper Manhattan, nearly closed in 2018 due to a $40,000 rent hike. Landlord New York-Presbyterian Hospital and Coogans reached a last-minute deal in 2018 brokered by Lin-Manuel Miranda’s father, Luis A. Miranda, Jr., a Bronx political operative.[NYT, Crain’s] — Georgia Kromrei  This content is for subscribers only.Subscribe Nowlast_img read more

The terms of that agreement haven’t been made public, but it managed to change the minds of multiple City Council members who initially opposed the project.“After decades of false starts and stops to activate the waterfront, we could not be more honored to be part of the solution,” the development team said in a statement. “Today and together, we move Flushing forward.”The development team — F&T Group, Young Nian Group and United Construction and Development Group — agreed to include 90 affordable housing units on one of the sites, which is being upzoned under the city’s Mandatory Inclusionary Housing program. The team will also engage with the Department of Housing Preservation and Development over the next three years to maximize affordable housing at the project.When asked if talks with HPD are likely to lead to more affordable housing within the district, given the scarcity of city subsidies currently available, Speaker Corey Johnson said that will likely depend on what kind of state and federal funding the city receives. He noted that he doesn’t think the city will make a full recovery from its pandemic-related economic woes in the next three years.Thursday’s vote followed approvals earlier in the week by the City Council’s Subcommittee on Zoning and Franchises and its Committee on Land Use.Flushing Council member Peter Koo praised the project as an “economic shot in the arm” that will connect the neighborhood to the waterfront. The developers estimate that the project will generate $116 million in property tax revenue and create more than 3,700 permanent jobs.The approval follows more than two decades of city officials and developers mulling the future of Flushing’s waterfront. Most recently, the city withdrew a plan in 2016, amid concerns that the height of the proposed buildings would interfere with flight patterns out of LaGuardia Airport.Opponents of the project argued that it will exacerbate gentrification in the neighborhood. Council member Carlos Menchaca criticized the development, saying that it features a privately-owned waterfront with limited public access, and consists of mostly market-rate housing.“Spending 10 years on a bad plan doesn’t make it a good plan,” he said. “It is egregious to argue that this project is for the people of Flushing.”Koo responded that Menchaca was incorrect about the limited access to the waterfront and scolded him for speaking out “when you have no idea what you’re talking about.”Community groups filed a lawsuit against City Planning in June, alleging that developers wrongfully skipped out on conducting an environmental review of the project. William Spisak, director of Housing Justice at Chhaya Community Development Corp., one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit, said his organization is considering adding the City Council to the complaint. He said the concessions made by the development team ahead of Thursday’s vote were inadequate.“It does nothing to address our concerns about affordable housing, the eventual displacement and gentrification of residents in the area,” he said.UPDATED: This story was updated with a statement from the development team, as well as a statement from William Spisak of Chhaya Community Development Corp.Contact Kathryn Brenzel This content is for subscribers only.Subscribe Now Full Name* Email Address* Message*last_img read more
