NPD: Anthem was the best-selling game in February

first_imgNPD: Anthem was the best-selling game in FebruaryMass Effect 3 is the only EA BioWare game to sell more in its launch monthMatthew HandrahanEditor-in-ChiefWednesday 20th March 2019Share this article Recommend Tweet ShareCompanies in this articleElectronic ArtsAnthem was the best-selling game in the United States in February 2019, according to the latest report from NPD, and it is behind only Kingdom Hearts III in the list of best-selling games of the year so far.The only EA BioWare game to sell more than Anthem in its launch month was Mass Effect 3; the latter divided critics due to its ending, but it’s fair to say that Anthem has received a cooler reception overall.Perhaps the biggest surprise of the month is that Bandai Namco’s Jump Force was right behind Anthem in NPD’s best-seller chart. Indeed, its launch month is the third highest ever achieved by a game from the Japanese publisher.4A Games’ Metro: Exodus didn’t even reach the top five, despite launching at the very start of the month. The Deep Silver published title finished the month in eighth position, although it did set a franchise record, surpassing the launch month sales of Metro: Last Light by almost 50%.Overall, dollar sales of tracked console, portable and PC software reached $457 million in February 2019, according to NPD, up 15% compared to the same month last year. The hardware market declined, dropping 12% year-on-year to $277 million. However, while Sony and Microsoft’s platforms are fully mature, Nintendo continued to see great returns from the Switch; it was Nintendo’s best February for hardware dollar sales since 2011, the heyday of the Wii, and the Switch was the best-selling platform of the month overall.Altogether, spending tracked spending on hardware, software, accessories and game cards reached $1 billion in February 2019, up 4% year-on-year.Below is NPD’s top 20 best-selling games chart for February 2019:1.

Two new solar plants now feeding 132MW into South Africa’s grid

first_imgBioTherm Energy, which is wholly owned by Actis, an emerging markets investor, has a portfolio of five projects in Africa. The Aggeneys Solar, Konkoonsies II Solar, Excelsior Wind and Golden Valley Wind with a total capacity of 284MW are implemented under the South African Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement (REIPPP) Programme and the 100MW Kipeto Wind project is under construction in Kenya. “This is a significant milestone, that sees the first two of our four South African renewable energy power plants feeding the grid,” commented Robert Skjodt, CEO of BioTherm Energy. “There is no doubt that renewable energy offers vast opportunities and should play a pivotal role in the country’s economic recovery strategy. It will not only improve the security of supply but also deliver the many economic and social co-benefits associated with South Africa’s renewable energy programme. Both these projects reached financial closure on 23 July 2018 and commenced construction in September of the same year. Together they will generate 33.3GWh of clean energy per year, at a time that South Africa continues to face power shortages. These are the same communities that will benefit from economic development programmes through the 20-year operations period of the plant, the company noted. The focus of the economic development initiatives will include education; skills development; and environmental stewardship, in addition to others.  Read more about:Solar power Two utility-scale solar plants in the Northern Cape, Aggeneys Solar and Konkoonsies II Solar, have commenced commercial operations, adding a collective 132MW to South Africa’s generation capacity. Aggeneys Solar and Konkoonsies II Solar, are situated in the Northern Cape, the province with the highest volume of renewable energy utility power plants. With close to 60% of the country’s Independent Power Producers (IPPs), it attracts much-needed investment, jobs and economic development, placing it at the forefront of the green economic power sector.  UNDP China, CCIEE launch report to facilitate low-carbon development Generation In his State of the Province Address, the Premier of the Northern Cape, Dr Zamani Saul, highlighted the unique opportunities the renewable energy sector provided for industry, government and the people of the Northern Cape, saying that ‘as a renewable energy hub, a direct opportunity exists to realise the ideal of unremitting energy sustainability for our homes and industry’.

New analysis shows onshore wind energy potential can power Africa

first_imgFeatured image: Stock Developing Africa’s huge onshore wind energy potential can boost its transition to affordable and reliable clean energy.A new study for IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, shows that continental Africa possesses a stunning onshore wind potential of almost 180,000 Terawatt hours (TWh) per annum, enough to meet the entire continent’s electricity demands 250 times over.The analysis, carried out by Everoze, finds that 27 countries in Africa have enough wind potential on their own to satisfy the entire continental electricity demand—estimated at 700 TWh annually. Algeria has the highest resource with a total potential of 7,700 Gigawatts (GW), equivalent to over 11 times current global installed wind capacity. “This analysis has clearly shown that Africa has world-class wind potential and that wind can play an important role in bringing clean, affordable electricity to millions on the continent,” said Linda Munyengeterwa, IFC’s infrastructure director for the Middle East and Africa. “Going forward, IFC is committed to working with the public and private sector to help realise Africa’s remarkable, and largely untapped, wind potential.” Low carbon, solar future could increase jobs in the future – SAPVIA Sign up for the ESI Africa newsletter Generation “What is surprising is how distributed the wind resource is,” said Sean Whittaker, principal industry specialist at IFC. “By using high-resolution mesoscale wind models and assuming the use of tall, large rotor, modern turbines we see great potential in countries not previously considered to be ‘windy’ places, including Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Botswana, Cameroon and Mozambique.” TAGSAlgeriaEgyptEthiopiaGWECKenyaMaliMauritaniaNamibiaSouth Africawind energy Previous articleWorld Bank funds Egypt’s initiatives to reduce climate pollutionNext articleDigital dialogues: Spotlight on doing business in Africa Babalwa BunganeBabalwa Bungane is the content producer for ESI Africa – Clarion Events Africa.

AFD and Eskom commit to a competitive electricity sector The analysis also finds that over one-third of Africa’s wind potential is in areas with very strong winds, averaging greater than 8.5 meters per second. Seventeen of the countries analysed have particularly strong wind potential, with average productivity (as measured by their “capacity factors”) up to 46%, rivalling the most productive onshore wind sites in the world.  Fifteen other countries have technical wind potentials over 1,000GW including Mauritania, Mali, Egypt, Namibia, South Africa, Ethiopia and Kenya.  center_img Commenting on the outcome of the analysis, Ben Backwell, CEO of the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) said: “This important report demonstrates that the studies which have been published until now have significantly underestimated the opportunity that wind energy represents for Africa. There is a clear need now for governments to enact policies to take advantage of the vast resource that the report identifies and enable large scale investment in wind as a key building block for green economic recovery post-COVID-19.”IFC and GWEC will host a joint webinar on 5 October to disseminate and discuss the key findings of the analysis. IFC noted that wind is one of the fastest-growing, cheapest sources of new power generation around the world with over 650GW of installed capacity. However, installed wind capacity in Africa represents less than 1% of this capacity. The analysis reveals a total wind energy potential on the African continent of over 59,000GW—equivalent to 90 times the current global installed wind capacity. Wind energy potential RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Finance and Policy IFC worked in collaboration with Everoze, Vortex and GWEC to conduct the analysis. Everoze drew on high-resolution mesoscale data from the Global Wind Atlas and applied basic constraints for technical restrictions (i.e. slopes, elevation, minimum wind speed, land use cover) and basic environmental restrictions (i.e. population density, protected areas).

Striking new meeting room for ministers

first_imgThe construction, said to cost €160 million, will be overseen by a team of architects and engineers from Belgium, Italy and the UK. The winning design was chosen by an international jury from a shortlist of 25 applications.The proposal promises to add a new dimension to the Brussels cityscape. Until now, planners in the city have tended to err on the side of conservatism when choosing between design projects. Philippe Samyn, the winning architect, has said that his design has a symbolic value. The dimensions of the site meant a cube was the only possible structure to fit the space and the faade had to be flat, but his design still embodies an interpretation of the European project. The winning design and other submissions to the competition will be exhibited in the Résidence Palace from 28 September to 14 October. The glass that makes up the outer wall of the new edifice will be held in place by a wooden framework. Samyn has specified that the wood making up this outer framework should be collected from each member state. The architect wants a patchwork of wooden beams drawn from across the continent but assembled together to form a single self-supporting structure. “Europe too is a patchwork,” Samyn says, “that is what gives it such cultural wealth. Compared to the United States, Europe is a constant duality of unity and diversity.”Within the outer framework there will be another separate structure to house the ministerial meeting rooms. This is the structure that resembles a giant glass jar. One of the architects joked that the team was inspired by the more noble image of a pregnant goddess but whether seen as a pregnant goddess or a giant jar the architects had two objectives. They wanted to produce a structure that would make the ministers inside visible to those outside the building and allow natural light to penetrate all levels.Samyn’s building will back onto one wing of the Résidence Palace. The architect has been careful to preserve this Art Decco building in order to show that “respect for heritage is in no way incompatible with modernity”.last_img read more

Can anyone succeed as Trump’s chief of staff?

first_imgFirst, Mulvaney should keep a low profile. Kelly’s credibility never recovered from his creepy, get-off-my-lawn performance in the White House briefing room in the fall of 2017, when he smeared Representative Frederica Wilson with a false story, then refused to apologize. While Mulvaney is more polished on camera, he has so far sounded more like a Trump sycophant than a person who can tell the president hard truths, the most important duty for any chief. “This is what having a president who is nontraditional … looks like,” Mulvaney recently told Chris Wallace on Fox News, right after the president ordered a precipitous troop withdrawal from Syria and shut down the government, sending Wall Street stocks into a dizzying plunge.Actually, this is not what a nontraditional president looks like. This is what a dysfunctional White House looks like. It’s Mulvaney’s job to help the president fix the machinery of government, even if Trump doesn’t know it is broken.Second, Mulvaney must understand the scope of his job. Kelly famously declared that while he would bring order and discipline to the White House, it was not his job to manage the president. Mulvaney has echoed that view, saying that he will be chief of staff (not of the president), and will not try to rein in Trump. That betrays a fundamental misunderstanding of the job, a crucial part of which is to protect the president from himself. It’s the chief’s responsibility to keep him from acting on impulse; from making half-baked decisions; from demonizing people who disagree with him. Granted, Trump is who he is—given his personality and character, it may not be possible to “manage” how he operates as president. But it’s the chief’s job to try.Third, Mulvaney must act as the president’s honest broker of information. That means not only calling out Trump’s lies, as Kelly often failed to do, but also enforcing a well-informed decision-making process. Even more than the national security adviser, the chief must see that only the toughest decisions get into the Oval Office, ensuring that accurate information is teed up on every side—whether the president heeds it or not. Trump is someone for whom discipline, focus and process are anathema. And yet in the wake of his impulsive, seat-of-the-pants decisions to withdraw troops from Syria and Afghanistan, which triggered Defense Secretary James Mattis’ extraordinary resignation, a well-informed, fully vetted decision-making process is more critical than ever—not only for the president himself, but for the country.Sooner or later, a crisis—foreign, domestic, economic—will come. Ten years ago, staring into the abyss of an imminent worldwide depression, President George W. Bush mulled whether to do something contrary to every political bone in his body: give an almost trillion-dollar bailout to the banks that had caused the crisis in the first place. It was the only way, chief of staff Joshua Bolten and his advisers told him, to prevent world economic collapse. Bush listened, and swallowed that bitter pill, averting total disaster. Does anyone think Trump, no matter how grave the stakes, would make a decision contrary to his political interest? Not without a strong chief of staff.Fourth, Trump’s new chief must help him learn the difference between campaigning—which is dividing and demonizing—and governing, which requires building coalitions. Kelly often reinforced Trump’s worst, partisan instincts—from trashing Wilson to encouraging the administration’s “zero tolerance” border policy. Even when this White House gets something right, it has displayed a genius for squandering the moment. The First Step Act, a genuine breakthrough in criminal justice reform, which passed the House and Senate in December, was a rare opportunity to turn the page from confrontation to bipartisan cooperation. But Trump buried the achievement in an avalanche of petulance and pique over his stymied border wall. At times like that, it will be Mulvaney’s job to walk into the Oval Office, close the door and tell the president to cut it out. (Good luck with that.) It’s no wonder Mick Mulvaney, Donald Trump’s new White House chief of staff, wanted “acting” in his job title. James A. Baker III, Ronald Reagan’s quintessential gatekeeper, tells every incoming chief the same thing when asked for his advice: “Congratulations, you’ve got the worst f—ing job in government.” The position is so relentless and punishing that Dick Cheney blames his stint as Gerald Ford’s 34-year-old lieutenant for triggering his first heart attack.For chiefs, those were the best of times. These are the worst, serving a president who makes their lives miserable, and the assignment virtually impossible. How do you perform the second most powerful job in government when the boss treats you like his valet, or cruise director? Don’t ask Reince Priebus or John Kelly, who both failed in the position. In a recent exit interview with the Los Angeles Times, Kelly said he should be judged by all the terrible things he prevented the president from doing. As a metric for a White House chief’s performance, that’s unprecedented. But then, so is Trump.While it will be incredibly tricky, it is still possible for Mulvaney to improve on the performances of his predecessors, and to be an asset to Trump and the country. Mulvaney was chosen in part for his presumed political savvy; the former South Carolina congressman was thought to be a possible help in Trump‘s expected reelection bid. But the 2020 campaign should be Mulvaney’s last priority. What the president desperately needs now is someone who can help him govern—which is in both Trump’s and the country’s best interest and, after all, is the reason we elect presidents. To help Trump do that, his new chief should stick to basics. Finally, with investigators and prosecutors closing in on Trump’s malfeasance, Mulvaney must be careful to avoid the fate of Richard Nixon’s chief H.R. Haldeman, who traded his West Wing office for a prison cell after his conviction for conspiracy and obstruction of justice in the Watergate scandal.A more encouraging model for Mulvaney might be Howard Baker, Reagan’s penultimate chief of staff. At the height of the Iran-Contra scandal, with the threat of impeachment looming, Reagan stubbornly insisted, against all evidence, that he had not traded arms to Iran for hostages. Baker and his deputy, Ken Duberstein, who would later succeed Baker as chief, sat the president down and persuaded him, nonetheless, to deliver an apology on national television. Reagan’s popularity immediately rebounded; he finished his second term with an approval rating of 68 percent.Mulvaney will have to play the role of wartime consigliere for a White House under siege. When special counsel Robert Mueller’s hammer finally comes down, Trump’s chief must be prepared to present the president with a range of unpleasant options—possibly including his resignation for the good of the country.In return for his efforts, Mulvaney will almost certainly be fired. But there are worse fates, including complicity in some of this president’s shameful episodes (praising neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, attacking the free press) and misguided policies (separating migrant families, cozying up to Vladimir Putin). Just about everyone who serves this president ends up tarnished. For all of these reasons, Trump’s incoming chief of staff should take James Baker’s admonition to the bank. If I had Mulvaney’s title, I would keep the “acting” part.

Ryan Newman will drive No. 6 Roush Fenway Racing Ford in 2019

first_imgRyan Newman will fill the No. 6 Ford at Roush Fenway Racing beginning in 2019, giving longtime team owner Jack Roush a veteran presence in the seat.The team owner and driver announced the news in a joint press conference Saturday at Richmond Raceway, just hours before the Federated Auto Parts 400 (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN/NBC Sports App, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). Reports of the news first trickled out Friday. RELATED: Silly Season key playersNewman is one of 30 drivers in NASCAR history to make at least 600 starts. He has 18 career wins – including eight in 2003 – and joins Roush from Richard Childress Racing, where he’s driven the No. 31 since the start of the 2014 season. He and Ricky Stenhouse Jr., who drives the No. 17 Ford, give Roush his complete two-car lineup in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. “I’ve never wanted to stop, I never wanted to quit, never wanted to retire and want to win a championship,” said the 40-year-old Newman, now in his 17th full season in the Monster Energy Series. “I look forward to this opportunity. Obviously, finishing out this year as strongly as we both can in our respective positions, but at the same time with enthusiasm for the Daytona 500 in 2019.”Trevor Bayne was the full-time driver of the No. 6 Ford from 2015-17, then split time with veteran Matt Kenseth in the seat this year when Roush opted to bring the veteran driver back to get additional feedback.Saturday, Roush thanked both Bayne and Kenseth as the “most recent custodians” of the No. 6 ride, saying that Kenseth’s input has helped make modest improvements. Still, both cars missed the NASCAR Playoffs this year, with the No. 17 currently 20th in the team owner standings and the No. 6 sitting in 25th.“Even though the results haven’t justified the effort, we’ve had more speed in our cars and we’ve got a direction that’s going to be clear that’ll make better race cars and better racing for our fans going forward,” Roush said. “Ryan Newman has been one of the most fierce drivers that we’ve faced on the race track. … He has demonstrated himself to have good values, and one of the things that a driver has to have is a code that makes sense to other drivers.”Roush had confirmed earlier this month on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio that Bayne would not return to the seat in 2019, while indicating at the time he had a driver in mind as a replacement.Roush Fenway Racing President Steve Newmark said that Kenseth was involved in helping determine his successor. Kenseth, 46, had made 10 starts this season heading into Saturday night’s 400-lapper at Richmond, but Newmark said he indicated he was not seeking a full-time ride for next season. “He came and sat down with me and said, when he was looking at everything, talking to his family, considering at what stage he is in his life, meaning that he’s got four young girls, has been on the road for almost 20 years sacrificing a lot of family time,” said Newmark, who added that the team would meet with Kenseth in the coming days about a possible role with the organization in the future. “He just wasn’t prepared to run full time, and we talked a lot about that and he said he owed it to his family.“So we obviously respect his decision, even through this process even though this has really ramped up in the last five to 10 days. He’s been helpful on trying to guide us on the direction to go for 2019 with drivers and other things.”Newmark added that other drivers had approached RFR about the 2019 vacancy, inquiries that he called “flattering.”“For us, the clear-cut favorite was Ryan and we’re really glad that when he looked at his options, he decided this was the right match,” Newmark said. “I think at this point where we look at where we are as far as our development process, I think Jack mentioned we’ve had a lot of speed at race tracks and I think we just felt that Ryan was the right person to come in and perform immediately.“If you look at his track record, it’s as good as anyone out there. We also just felt like he could also help us take that next step based on his experience and his background.”RELATED: Ryan Newman’s career highlights in photosNewman advanced to the Championship 4 in 2014, the first year of NASCAR’s elimination-style playoff format. He finished second that season to champion Kevin Harvick. Newman also qualified for the postseason in 2015 (11th) and 2017 (16th) with the organization.It’s the latest move for Newman, who began his career driving for Roger Penske. Following eight full-time seasons with “The Captain,” Newman moved to Stewart-Haas Racing from 2009-13 before joining RCR.last_img read more
