Exclusive: Apollo bets on Clearway Energy, defying PG&E bankruptcy fallout

Yahoo Science News feed latest items - Fri, 03/01/2019 - 09:25

Apollo's move is a sign of confidence in Clearway, which cut its dividend from 33 cents to 20 cents per share last month amid concerns that California utility PG&E Corp could abandon its power purchase agreement with Clearway, a wind, solar and natural gas-fired power generation company. PG&E filed for bankruptcy on Jan. 29, citing mounting liabilities, including the possibility its equipment set off the deadly Camp Fire, which destroyed the Northern California town of Paradise and killed 86 people. Since November, Clearway's shares have lost more than a fifth of their value as investors worried that PG&E will renege on its contract.

Limited Competition: Renewal of the Aging Interventions Testing Program (U01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

NIH Funding Opportunities - Fri, 03/01/2019 - 09:13
Funding Opportunity RFA-AG-19-030 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The Aging Interventions Testing Program (ITP) tests, under standardized conditions, potential intervention strategies which may decelerate the rate of aging in mammals. The rate of aging is to be measured by lifespan extension and/or improvements in health at later ages due to the intervention. The ITP has used lifespan as its primary outcome for an intervention, with limited studies on end-of-life pathologies and selected tests of health across the lifespan (health span). This FOA calls for renewal of the ITP with the following goals: 1) Continue to test compounds for effects on lifespan; 2) Increase histology and pathophysiology analyses at time of death; 3) Increase focused studies of health span on selected compounds.

Jay Inslee: Climate change advocate announces bid for 2020 presidential race — and he’s getting a Super PAC

Yahoo Science News feed latest items - Fri, 03/01/2019 - 08:12

Washington governor Jay Inslee, a fierce climate change activist and former congressman, is joining the 2020 presidential race as a growing pool of Democratic candidates seek to unseat Donald Trump in the White House. Unlike the slate of progressives who have announced their bids before him and rejected the help of Super PACs, the governor will reportedly receive aid along the campaign trail from Act Now On Climate, a group spearheaded by Corey Platt, the former political director of the Democratic Governor’s Association. “He’ll be the person to say [climate change] is the number one priority,” Mr Platt told HuffPost about the Super PAC’s support for Mr Inslee.

Tens of thousands of Algerians rally against fifth Bouteflika term

Yahoo Science News feed latest items - Fri, 03/01/2019 - 08:00

The gathering, like other demonstrations around the large north African country, was mostly peaceful, but police fired tear gas on one occasion to try to disperse demonstrators assembling in Algiers after Friday prayers. Chanting "Bye, bye Bouteflika", "peaceful, peaceful" and some carrying roses, the crowd vented frustration at a plan by the 81-year-old leader to extend his 20-year rule in April elections. Within one hour of starting, the protest quickly drew tens of thousands, including young people, families and some elderly, the largest gathering since 2011 "Arab Spring" demonstrations.

U.S. imposes more sanctions on Venezuela amid humanitarian aid fight

Yahoo Science News feed latest items - Fri, 03/01/2019 - 07:46

The United States imposed fresh sanctions on Venezuela on Friday, targeting six Venezuelan government officials tied to President Nicolas Maduro, in its latest move to squeeze the embattled leader. In a statement, the U.S. Department of Treasury cited the battle over humanitarian assistance and blamed the six current or former security officials, who it said controlled groups that blocked aid from reaching people in the Latin American country. "We are sanctioning members of Maduro's security forces in response to the reprehensible violence, tragic deaths, and unconscionable torching of food and medicine destined for sick and starving Venezuelans," U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said after deadly violence blocked humanitarian aid from reaching the Venezuela over the weekend.
