first_imgDesignPro hydrokinetic technology (Image: DesignPro Renewables) Irish company DesignPro Renewables has opened an opportunity for an experienced researcher to get involved in a renewable energy project related to hydrokinetic power under the SFI Industry Fellowship Programme.DesignPro Renewables is developing and commercializing small-scale hydrokinetic turbines as part of our EU-funded Horizon 2020 SME Instrument project, having just installed a 25kW turbine variant for trials at French river test site for hydrokinetic technology SEENEOH.According to the company, the potential research project as part of the fellowship could relate to remote identification of high potential resource areas, analysis of the interaction of the turbines and their environment, or mooring design and stress modelling.For full-time fellowships, researchers can spend up to 12 months working on the project. There is also an option for part-time fellowships, according to DesignPro Renewables, which added the research project will begin in April 2019.Aside from the 25kW variant under tests in France, the company is currently in the design phase for the larger 60kW machine, which will be built at the DesignPro facility in Limerick in Ireland before being deployed at a selected test site location.last_img read more

first_img“Next.”“Good morning. We want to apply for a marriage licence.” “Names?” “Tim and Jim Jones.” “Jones?  Are you related?  I see a resemblance.” “Yes, we’re brothers.” “Brothers? You can’t get married.” “Why not? Aren’t you giving marriage licences to same gender couples?” “Yes, thousands. But we haven’t had any siblings. That’s incest!” “Incest? No, we are not gay.” “Not gay? Then why do you want to get married?” “For the financial benefits, of course. And we do love each other. Besides, we don’t have any other prospects.” “But we’re issuing marriage licences to gay and lesbian couples who’ve been denied equal protection under the law. If you are not gay, you can get married to a woman.” “Wait a minute. A gay man has the same right to marry a woman as I have.  But just because I’m straight doesn’t mean I want to marry a woman. I want to marry Jim.” “And I want to marry Tim, Are you going to discriminate against us just because we are not gay?” “All right, all right. I’ll give you your licence. Next.” “Hi. We are here to get married.” “Names?”“John Smith, Jane James, Robert Green, and June Johnson.” “Who wants to marry whom?” “We all want to marry each other.” “But there are four of you!” “That’s right. You see, we’re all bisexual. I love Jane and Robert, Jane loves me and June, June loves Robert and Jane, and Robert loves June and me. All of us getting married together is the only way that we can express our sexual preferences in a marital relationship.” “But we’ve only been granting licences to gay and lesbian couples.” “So you’re discriminating against bisexuals!” “No, it’s just that, well, the traditional idea of marriage is that it’s just for couples.” “Since when are you standing on tradition?” “Well, I mean, you have to draw the line somewhere.” “Who says? There’s no logical reason to limit marriage to couples.  The more the better.  Besides, we demand our rights! The mayor says the constitution guarantees equal protection under the law.  Give us a marriage licence!” “All right, all right. Next.” “Hello, I’d like a marriage licence.” “In what names?” “David Deets.” “And the other man?” “That’s all. I want to marry myself.” “Marry yourself? What do you mean?” “Well, my psychiatrist says I have a dual personality, so I want to marry the two together.  Maybe I can file a joint income-tax return……..”last_img read more
