Kentucky Power to request 23% rate increase, says EPA regs are a factor New Jersey utility regulators extend zero-carbon breaks for PSEG nuclear power plants “Environmental compliance is an expensive proposition, and we have always said EPA regulations associated with the continued use of coal would come at a high cost to customers,” Kentucky Power President and CEO Greg Pauley stated in a release. “We are trying to manage to manage those costs as best we can.” Kentucky Power announced Thursday it would file a base rate case with the Kentucky Public Service calling for an increase in revenue of $114 million, which would require a general rate increase of 23.39 percent for Kentucky Power customers. The rate increase for residential customers would be around 31 percent, an increase of around $37 monthly for an average user.

IBM CEO Arvind Krishnam and 88 University Place (Google Maps, IBM)IBM is pulling the plug on a large office space it leases from WeWork.The technology giant will leave the 70,000-square-foot space it leases from WeWork at 88 University Place sometime around Labor Day, Business Insider reported. IBM will continue to lease office space from WeWork in Chicago and London.When the two parties struck a deal in 2017, it marked a turning point for WeWork, which was trying to expand past the market for freelancers and into the market for corporate clients.But in recent months, WeWork has faced tensions with its renters, who have called the company’s continued charging of fees during the pandemic “unlawful.” The company has said it must keep offices open for those of its users considered essential. Earlier this month, WeWork’s valuation fell to $2.9 billion, a far cry from $47 billion a year ago.ADVERTISEMENTRead moreIBM to take entire WeWork building in landmark dealWeWork’s valuation drops to $2.9BWATCH: Sandeep Mathrani says WeWork paid 80% of its rent Now, as remote work grows in appeal, major companies are reevaluating their physical footprints — leading to growing concerns about the broader office sector. Mark Zuckerburg announced this week that Facebook estimates that half its workforce could transition to remote work over the next decade. Others, including Twitter and Shopify, have signalled they would move toward working from home permanently.A shift toward remote working could also upend business models such as WeWork’s, which depended on the appeal of a reimagined in-person office culture.

Senior sources say that ACP Commissioner João de Deus Pinheiro is likely to call for trade agreements with groups of ACP countries to come into force five years after the current Lomé Convention expires, ending three decades of privileged market access.Officials claim the proposals, due to be unveiled later this month, mark a radical departure from existing policy and will help ease Europe’s less developed partners into the global trading system.But development organisations have expressed serious misgivings about the plan which, they claim, dangerously overestimates the ability of developing countries to adapt. The Commission this week proposed the absolute minimum it felt it could get away with to answer WTO concerns – a new import licensing system but almost no change to its banana quotas – but may find it hard to do so next time the issue surfaces.Critics of the proposed new EU-ACP relationship believe that the Commission has not taken into account a new degree of flexibility shown by the WTO in helping the world’s poorest countries to integrate into the global market-place.“We believe there is much more room for manoeuvre,” said Myriam Vander Stichele from the Transnational Institute in the Netherlands.Stichele is particularly concerned that the proposals misjudge the special requirements of southern countries. “Free trade is not needed for Africa. What is really needed is a good chapter on trade cooperation,” she said.Despite these criticisms, DGVIII insists its proposals will help to haul the ACP out of the poverty trap which has crippled it for so long, something that trade preferences failed to achieve.“This is a real, real opportunity,” said Lowe. “Every country is calling for a new start to development policy. These countries need trade and inward investment. We must help them create the conditions to achieve that. If there are as many businessmen in Africa as we see economists in conferences, the region could have a glittering future.” Although the transition period is two years longer than the Commission suggested in the preliminary guidelines it published last year, the Brussels-based non-governmental organisation (NGO) liaison committee says it still “appears unrealistic”.“Trade has a vital influence on the fight against poverty and on sustainable economic and social development,” warned committee secretary James Mackie in a letter to Philip Lowe, head of the Commission’s Directorate-General for development (DGVIII). He added: “Discussions and proposals to date give us the impression that the Commission has not given due consideration to those aspects.”ACP Secretary-General Peter Magande was reluctant to comment at this stage, but expressed concern at the prospect of facing global competition without sufficient preparation. “We want to have free trade, but it is still unclear what measures will be taken during the transition period. How will Europe help us get ready for this?” he asked.Lowe insists that the Union is not abandoning its southern partners. “The EU should help the ACP countries by giving them assistance to meet international standards of commerce, helping them to adapt their structures to liberal trade conditions and by stimulating their trade with the Union,” he said.The EU will also keep certain preferences under commodity-specific trade protocols and allow further transition periods of up to a decade after 2005.On the face of it, the Commission has little choice.Its World Trade Organisation (WTO) partners are growing increasingly critical of inter-regional bloc trade preferences, and fired a clear warning shot across the EU’s bows with their recent ruling that its banana regime contravened international trade rules.
The Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) recently announced the spring 2009 funding cycle for the Kuwait Program Research Fund. With the support of the Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences, a Kennedy School faculty committee will consider applications for one-year grants (up to $30,000) and larger grants for more extensive proposals to support advanced research by Harvard faculty members on issues of critical importance to Kuwait and the Persian Gulf. Grants can be applied toward research assistance, travel, summer salary, and course buyout.Priority will be given to the following subjects, although applications will be considered in other areas as well:technology transferwater resources and managementoil and petrochemicalssmall country securitygovernance and transparency issuesgovernment subsidies policyvocational training modelshuman resources developmentapplied research, education, and training related to the environment and pollutionpublic health policy including disease treatment (especially diabetes) and preventionfinancial growth and foreign investmentIn addition, HKS is seeking more extensive and ambitious proposals on small country security and climate change and its impact on the Gulf. The Kennedy School is prepared to provide greater funding over a longer period of time for research in these two areas.Proposals will be evaluated based on the direct involvement of Harvard faculty, the relevance and transferability of the research to Kuwait and the region, and the quality of the work plan — which should include an outreach component. Collaborative research with Kuwaiti academics and educational institutions is strongly encouraged.To apply, submit research proposals of no more than five pages, a budget, other sources of funding, and a curriculum vitae (for senior researchers) to: Director, Middle East Initiative, John F. Kennedy School of Government, 79 JFK St., Cambridge, MA 02138. For questions and inquiries, call (617) 495-5963. The deadline for grant applications is April 17, and decisions will be announced by May 18.
Billy Strings brought his progressive take on Americana to Cambridge, Massachusetts on Thursday night for his second sold-out show at The Sinclair in as many nights. Born William Apostol, Strings played several hours of original tunes and covers that contained elements of bluegrass, folk, blues, and rock, satisfying over 500 fans who came out to see the rising star at an intimate venue tucked within the historic Harvard Square.As the multi-level room filled up on the crisp Boston night, Mattie & Debbie took to the stage for a solid supporting set. The irreverent Boston-based duo, which consists of Stash Wyslouch (guitar/vocals) and Sean Trischka (drums, vocals), provided a raw yet cohesive opening performance. Clearly bluegrass-inspired, they showed off their harmonic ability as well as an ability to experiment on the fly. The unavoidably minimalist nature of a two-piece was contrasted by their raucous attitude and lyrically deep originals that littered the 45-minute set. Notable highlights from the performance included a flamenco-inspired tune sung exclusively in Spanish, an ebullient original accented by heavily distorted acoustic guitar, and a rendition of their first single, “Piece of Paper”, which Wyslouch jokingly booed himself for playing two nights in a row.Just after 10 p.m., Billy Strings arrived on the Sinclair stage with bandmates Billy Failing (banjo), Royal Masat (Bass), and Jarrod Walker (mandolin). A loud round of applause helped to lead the band into two songs off their latest release, Home—“Taking Water” and “Running”—before a cover of “Doin’ My Time”, a traditional bluegrass tune popularized by Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs and the Foggy Mountain Boys. “While I’m Waiting Here” contained a lengthy improv section in which Walker and Billy traded solos while creating soaring peaks that crashed down to delay-infused valleys. The more spacious areas of the room were replete with flamboyant dancing as each member took turns leading the rest of the band through the exceptional jam.A “Pyramid Country” > “Little Maggie” segue led smoothly to an unfinished version of the Grateful Dead’s “China Doll”. Masat and Failing provided backing vocals before Billy added a layer of distortion to his acoustic guitar for a bluesy solo. The band continued with the “blue” theme through a cover of Townes Van Zandt‘s “White Freightliner Blues” and “I’m Blue, I’m Lonesome,” by bluegrass icon Bill Monroe. The rapid-fire staccato picking inherent in bluegrass was on full display throughout the jam section of a noteworthy cover of The String Cheese Incident’s “Black Clouds” that ended the first set in upbeat fashion.Picking up where he left off, Billy led the band into Home track “Away From The Mire”, which started off slow and showcased the frontman’s vocal range before the tempo picked up to a more brisk pace, contrasted with weighty lyrics that echoed throughout the room:Let go of the pain, hold on to the rhythmThat’s consciously held back in youYou’re drowning a sorrow that’s long been at restThe past is a Hell, it can creep up inside youSo let me remind you of thisThere’s a reason your troubles existHome track “Long Forgotten Dream” and Billy Hayes‘ “I’ll Remember You Love in My Prayers” preceded “Watch It Fall”, which paved the way to fan-favorite “Dust in a Baggie”, off the self-titled Billy Strings EP. The crowd buzzed as Strings provided sprawling guitar leads and a chromatic walk-up that catapulted the band to the peak of the improv section.Sean Trischka of Debbie & Mattie joined the band on the drum kit next for a cover of Phish’s “Back on the Train”. Vocal harmonies and a thumping bass solo by Masat brought the set to new heights. Trischka stuck around as Stash Wyslouch and Anh Phung (flute) came on for “Gold Rush” and presented an opportunity for skillful flute and acoustic guitar leads by the honored guests. All three musicians remained on stage for the rest of the set. A cover of “Haven’t Seen Mary in Years” featured Wyslouch on vocals and came before another Phish-y cover, Son Seals‘ “Funky Bitch”, kept the momentum high.Strings donned his Gibson SG for “Funky Bitch”, which brought an added heaviness to the sound. An envelope filter effect provided funky overtones while the rhythm section remained concentrated and deliberate. Billy then counted the band into the penultimate song, Jimi Hendrix favorite “Fire”, before switching back to his acoustic guitar and allowing Phung to lead the band into “Meet Me at the Creek”, This expressive jam was marked by “Sand”, “Locomotive Breath”, and “Tweezer Reprise” teases, dueling guitars from Billy and Stash, as well as flute leads and a drum solo by Trischka. The show reached its climax here, creating an interesting dichotomy between the end of set two and the encore.As fans cheered throughout the encore break, Billy finally came back to the stage alone, sans instrument. He ended the performance with a gutsy and astonishing acapella version of “Am I Born to Die”.The Billy Strings fall tour continues tonight, Friday, November 15th, at Brooklyn Bowl for the first of two shows at the NYC venue this weekend. A free webcast is available for tonight’s show via The Relix Channel.
