Northstar Vermont Yankee,Entergy Corporation reported fourth quarter 2010 earnings of $1.26 per share on an as-reported basis, compared to the same period last year of $1.64. For year-end 2010, earnings were $6.66 versus $6.30 for 2009. Entergy is the parent company of the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant in Vernon. SEE FULL REPORT HEREOperational Earnings Highlights for Fourth Quarter 2010â ¢ Utility results were lower due to an increase in non-fuel operation and maintenance expense.â ¢ Entergy Wholesale Commodities earnings decreased as a result of lower net revenue and a higher effective income tax rate, partially offset by a gain on sale of an investment.â ¢ Parent & Other results declined due to several individually insignificant items including higher interest expense.‘Once again our businesses delivered strong operational performance and for the sixth year in a row we achieved record operational earnings per share,’ said J. Wayne Leonard, Entergy’s chairman and chief executive officer. ‘Our efforts in 2010 have positioned us for future success. The Utility’s regulatory progress, including rate case settlements in Arkansas and Texas, and future opportunities for productive investments provide one of the best growth stories in the industry. The execution of the reorganization to establish Entergy Wholesale Commodities further enhances our focus on license renewal efforts. And as EWC faces challenging power markets, we are largely hedged in the upcoming years to provide certainty in a bearish environment.’Entergy’s business highlights include the following:â ¢ The Staff of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission issued its final supplemental environmental impact statement for Indian Point’s proposed 20-year license renewal, concluding that there are no environmental impacts that would preclude license renewal for an additional 20 years of operation.â ¢ The Public Utility Commission of Texas unanimously approved the Entergy Texas rate case settlement.â ¢ In January, Entergy Louisiana received the remaining regulatory approval from the Louisiana Public Service Commission for its proposed acquisition of the Acadia Unit 2 power plant paving the way for a first quarter 2011 closing.
Dwiky, 25, who married his wife in February 2019, has yet to spend Idul Fitri with his wife at their home in Subang, West Java. Last year, he could not go home for the holiday because his ship sailed to Pontianak, West Kalimantan.“I sailed too far from home last year. But this year, it was not only the far distance – it was also the pandemic that stopped me from going home,” Dwiky said. “I could have just resigned if I wanted to meet my wife so badly. But it was not just about that. The government prohibited us from going on mudik to curb the COVID-19 spread, so I should abide by the rule”.Dian, 26, who has been working on the ship for a year, said he missed silaturahmi at his kampung, also in Subang. “If only there was no pandemic, I might have asked the company for a leave of absence,” he told the Post.A family holds a video chat during Idul Fitri in Pati, Central Java, on Sunday. (Antara/Harviyan Perdana Putra)For others, this year’s more modest Idul Fitri was an opportunity for introspection.Aprilian Eka Prananca, 26, said he felt “more devoted” during his Idul Fitri prayers at home, as this allowed him to lead the prayers alongside his wife instead of following directions in mosques.“The Idul Fitri celebration is different, but its essence is the same,” Aprilian said.This year, he only briefly visited some of his relatives to drop off and exchange gifts, while avoiding physical contact and keeping his mask on. In past years, his family would usually gather in one place, have sleepovers and cook together for the big day.Private sector employee Risti Oktavisena, 28, said that although she celebrated differently this year by staying at her rooming house and calling her relatives, the pandemic did not change how she interpreted the meaning of Idul Fitri.“In fact, the pandemic has actually made this year’s Idul Fitri more solemn, because even though we cannot directly have silahturahmi with family and relatives, we can still feel the warmth of togetherness through our devices when we express our sincere apologies,” she said.On social media, Indonesians posted about their virtual Idul Fitri experience using hashtags such as like #LebaranVirtual and #LebaranDiRumahAja (Lebaran at Home) and sharing clips of their video calls with family and friends.“Been connecting mindfully to our dearest people and #virtualhugging through phone and video calls all mornings [sic],” Twitter user @_starsandrabbit wrote on Sunday.Been connecting mindfully to our dearest people and #virtualhugging through phone and video calls all mornings. Made our heart even brighter the the outside weather 🌞selamat menikmati lebaran semuanyaaa 💜— Stars and Rabbit (@_starsandrabbit) May 24, 2020 Mass prayers, big family gatherings and banquets fit for a king. In any other year, this would be the norm for Idul Fitri celebrations in Indonesia, home to world’s largest Muslim population. This year, however, the silaturahmi (communal bonds) tradition of gathering with relatives during the annual holiday was carried out virtually under large-scale social restrictions to contain the spread of COVID-19.For Adhytia Pahlawan, a 26-year-old who started his job in Jakarta in September last year, this year marked the first time he celebrated Idul Fitri away from his family in Lumajang, East Java.“I could only keep the silaturahmi through video call. My mother really wanted me to be home as she misses me, but the situation does not allow me to,” he told The Jakarta Post on Monday. Topics : Adhytia said although he felt somewhat isolated and longed for his family’s company, he wanted to comply with the government’s ban on mudik (exodus), which prevents Indonesians from traveling to their hometowns for the holiday. For him, not going home was the best option, as he did not want to risk getting his loved ones sick.To abide by physical distancing rules, regional leaders across the country held digital open house events during Idul Fitri celebrations. Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo greeted people using Zoom and interacted with his constituents on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube on Sunday. West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil also kept alive the tradition of silaturahmi through a digital open house after Idul Fitri prayers.Read also: Millions of Indonesians celebrate Eid under social restrictionsFor Dwiky Eka Putra and Dian Septi Gunawan, both crew members of an Indonesian seafaring company’s cargo ship, celebrations were quiet.
Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros “It’s tough,” Cahill said. “Today I felt like I threw better than six runs. Kind of been the story of the season. So just kind of have to figure out when I have my good stuff to get through it, a good quality outing.”Those have been rare for Cahill, whose ERA climbed to 6.92.To hear Cahill and Ausmus describe it, that number is misleading, though. Lately Cahill has had stretches in which he’s been very effective, but he’s either been pulled early — which Ausmus said is on him — or it’s gotten away from him.On Monday, Cahill seemed to be cruising for the first three innings, allowing only one run.“The first few innings he was really good,” Ausmus said. “I thought his changeup was outstanding like the last few starts. He mixed his pitches well. He got some swings and misses on his fastball up in the zone. He looked really strong the first three-plus innings.” PreviousLos Angeles Angels pitcher Trevor Cahill works against the Oakland Athletics in the first inning of a baseball game Monday, May 27, 2019, in Oakland, Calif.

(AP Photo/Ben Margot)Expand In the fourth, Cahill missed with a changeup that Jurrickson Profar hit for a two-run homer, tying the game 3-3. He then hung a curve to Josh Phegley leading off the fifth, for a homer that put the Angels behind 4-3.Two hits later, Cahill was done. Ausmus said he might have led Cahill try to work his way out of it if the Angels had a lead, but down by a run he didn’t want to take a chance. He brought in Cam Bedrosian, who retired Matt Olson but then gave up a ground-ball single to Stephen Piscotty, pushing home two more runs that went onto Cahill’s line.So far this season, Cahill has left 10 runners on base and the bullpen has allowed six of them to score.Afterward, Ausmus said he remains hopeful that Cahill can improve.“I actually think Cahill has been pretty good his last three starts,” Ausmus said. “I know they haven’t been lengthy starts, but you can blame some of that on me for taking him out. But the key has been his changeup and he’s pitched so much better. Early in the season he didn’t have a good feel for it and now he does.”Despite Cahill’s rough game, the Angels stayed in the game because of their bats.Kole Calhoun, who had a pair of doubles and a walk, drove in Albert Pujols with a second-inning double.In the fourth, Pujols hit his ninth homer of the season to put the Angels up 2-1. They loaded the bases with one out in that inning, but scored only one more on a Luis Rengifo sacrifice fly.The Angels also put their first three runners on base in the sixth, scoring twice and stranding the tying run at third.A’s relievers Lou Trevino, Joakim Soria and Blake Treinen, however, shut down the Angels over the final three innings. They had just two singles.“If the A’s have a lead late in the game it’s going to be tough to get back,” Ausmus said. “They run those three guys out there, Trevino, Soria, Treinen. You are trying to have a lead through six to keep those guys out of the game because you know it’s an uphill battle. Today they did what they normally do when those guys come in.” Related Articles OAKLAND — For a couple innings on Monday, Trevor Cahill gave the Angels reason to be optimistic than he might finally be able to string together consecutive good outings.A few innings later, though, Cahill had departed with six more runs on the board, sending the Angels to an 8-5 loss to the Oakland A’s, who have won 10 in a row.Cahill, who took a no-hitter into the fifth and gave up just one run in his previous outing, retired the first seven hitters he faced before this game fell apart.

Liverpool, United Kingdom | AFP | Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah ensured Liverpool maintained their 100 percent start to the Premier League season by coming from behind to beat Newcastle 3-1 at Anfield on Saturday.The European champions have a history of starting slowly in early kick-offs under Jurgen Klopp and only arose from their slumber after the Magpies took a shock lead through Jetro Willems on seven minutes.Mane turned the tide before half-time with a sumptuous finish into the top corner before profiting from an error by Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka for his second.Dubravka redeemed himself after the break with a string of fine saves to keep the final score down, but was helpless when Salah finished coolly from Roberto Firmino’s cute backheel.Klopp’s men open up a five-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the table, but the champions can cut that gap back to two with victory at Norwich later on Saturday.Newcastle sprung a huge surprise by claiming their only win of the season so far at Tottenham three weeks ago. They followed the same script as they frustrated the hosts in the early stages before stunning Anfield by going in front.Willems turned inside Trent Alexander-Arnold before drilling a fierce shot past the helpless Adrian.Liverpool trailed at home for the first time since March, but quickly rallied to record a 14th straight Premier League victory. Mane was furious with Salah after being substituted in a 3-0 win away to Burnley before the international break, accusing the Egyptian of being too greedy in his eye for goal.But it is the Senegalese who has more goals so far this season and he arrowed into the far corner from Andy Robertson’s pass to get Liverpool back on level terms.Firmino had been rested from the start after his travels to the United States with Brazil during the international break, but he was soon called into the action as Divock Origi limped off injured.And Firmino made an instant impact as his pass towards Mane was spilled by Dubravka for the Liverpool number 10 to roll into an empty net.Liverpool had only one scare once they were in front as Emil Krafth blasted over a great chance to bring Newcastle level again at the back post.However, it was only a matter of time before the Reds made the game safe as Dubravka saved brilliantly from Robertson and twice denied the excellent Firmino, who was named man-of-the-match despite only coming on eight minutes before half-time.The Brazilian bagged another assist when his flick freed Salah, who took his time before leaving Dubravka grounded and placing the ball into the far corner.Mane was denied his hat-trick and Firmino a triple of assists by the offside flag, but Liverpool cruised through the final stages with one eye already on the start of their defence of the Champions League away to Napoli on Tuesday.Share on: WhatsApp
BILL NEAL :10 I guess we can now put to rest those on going rumors and myths about “Kobe” being a selfish player. He passed up the opportunity to score a mere 40 points to win the NBA scoring title for a 4th time. Kevin Durrant you can now exhale…the rest of you…just shut up!!!:09 Holy Jesus, Holy Jesus, Holy Jesus…alright Rev. Mike, you of the fabulous and ever growing church on Lemington Ave., oh you know the one. C’mon man! Anyway your voice has been heard. No man, not like a voice from heaven…more like a voice from across the parking lot in Monroeville. Your quality and highly competitive time spent in the early days of the Connie Hawkins League, your legendary skills on the pool table back in the day at Raiford’s house and most importantly your marriage to one of my favorite all time ladies now puts you “In The Locker Room.” Now go forward my son, part the waters and set my people free…my bad that’s asking a lot…just get more wings for the picnic this year. Me and the Corvette boys came up a little short. You know what I am saying?:08 If you had money on the Chicago Bulls to win the NBA title or for that matter the NBA East title, by now you know Derek Rose is done for the playoffs with a torn ACL, and your money my friend is in some mobsters bank account in Vegas.:07 Speaking of the NBA East, and I was. Ya’ll know I can’t stand “LeBron” but man…“He Is A Beast”…I am just saying!:06 The Steelers got it done in the draft, but what else is new. They always get it done. They got a steal in the first round when they picked up Stanford’s David DeCastro. He is already a projected as a 6-8 time pro bowler, compared to Alan Faneca and on top of all that he’s got a bad attitude!! Are you ready for some football?:05 Here’s all you need to know. Eddie Jefferies is all-right man! I sat down and talked with him for a couple of hours the other day and was quickly reminded of what I’ve known since the Connie Hawkins League days back at the “Y”…you can’t take a “Gangster” out…“A Rankin Gangster” that is! (God Bless you Willa!):04 This just in. The Pittsburgh Bullets Pittsburgh based semi-pro basketball team is the real deal. They have to be if they beat my Champions’ All-Stars. We dropped a close one 85-77 at the Champions All-Star Classic at Penn Hills YMCA on Sunday. (Yea you missed it.) But here’s the update: Gerald Warrick lead all scorers with 24 points; Devon Knight is still a basketball phenom; Lawrence “L.B.” Baker should be playing pro ball somewhere; Griffin Able is truly the ageless wonder. He just knows how to play; “J” Hood remains one of Pittsburgh’s greatest ever shooters; Deio Daniels aka “Big Tone” still brings the thunder; Marcus Robinson still has game even on one leg; And if you play them you better design a defense that includes 2×4’s cause that’s the only way you’re going to stop Amir Johnsom and Josh Trocchio from shooting them 3’s. The Penn Hills Police fought a tough battle but lost a good one to the A.K. Valley Police Officers and their Ringers… what? Hey fellas just kidding! But the hit of the day was the Homewood YMCA defeating the Rise High boys in a great…great…great middle school boys tournament.Well played everybody…well played.:03 Let me just say this…Alia’s mom is tough, I mean tough. She just had about 20 reconstructions and transplants and controlled the admission door like a pit-bull. No not one of those TV pit-bulls. I am talking about one of those Homewood pit-bulls that ain’t been fed in six days. Hey, she wouldn’t give me my own money! C’mon Mom!:02 Here’s a Two-Fer-One for ya. (1) “Safe”, starring Jason Stathan. All you can ask for and more. Cars, guns, “fight-in” and lots of dead bad guys. I give it 3 Basketballs.
