PEWAUKEE, Wis., Nov. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Wellness Network (TWN), a national leader in actionable patient education and My NICU Network, a collaborative comprised of three respected organizations involved in professional and parent education and support of high-risk newborns and their families, have partnered to offer NICU Staff Education and Family Support.

NICU Staff Education and Family Support was developed to deliver timely hospital staff education and family support resources to hospital NICU departments across the US.  "NICU professionals do an incredible job of caring for fragile, medically complicated newborns," said Sara Mosher RN, BSN, MHA, My NICU Network co-creator and Founder of Patient+Family Care. "However, studies have shown that family-centered care and engaged parents are as critical as sophisticated medical technologies to the continued improvement and eventual home discharge of NICU babies." 

My NICU Network created a NICU staff education course called Caring for NICU Babies and their Families: Providing Psychosocial Support in the NICU based on the National Perinatal Association's "Interdisciplinary Recommendations for the Psychosocial Support of NICU Parents," published in the Journal of Perinatology. My NICU Network, a collaboration between National Perinatal Association (NPA), Patient+Family Care (PFC) and Preemie Parent Alliance (PPA), developed this 7-module online continuing education series to fill known gaps in neonatal unit staff education. The program modules, which can be taken individually or as the full course, offer CEU credit accredited by PAC/LAC. Modules provide much-needed staff training and education to improve psychosocial support of families, including family-centered developmental care. Lessons focus on communication skills, emotional and peer-to-peer support, palliative and bereavement care, discharge planning and follow-up, and staff support.

A key feature of the educational course is that NICU graduate parents were involved in content creation from its inception. "We wanted NICU staff to understand the parent experience from our point of view, to personalize the medical literature and statistics. Doing so will help them meet the emotional needs of future NICU parents thus preparing the parents to advocate for their fragile babies well beyond NICU discharge," said Keira Sorrells, Founder and President of the Preemie Parent Alliance, My NICU Network co-creator. Learning points are illustrated with quotes from parents, letting NICU staff "walk a mile in their shoes."

"Equally as important to improved outcomes are clinically accurate yet relatable tools to help families navigate the NICU experience and their transition home," noted Sue Hall, MD, Neonatologist and NPA Board member, My NICU Network co-creator, and Chief Medical Officer of The Wellness Network's Your NICU Baby neonatal video and resource library.  "It is critical to have a bridge between staff education and family-centered resources so NICU staff have the tools needed to support and engage NICU families coping with this intense and complicated environment, as they work through their baby's health challenges."

Your NICU Baby Neonatal video and resource library, by The Wellness Network, offers 66 educational videos and 45 PDF handouts that help families successfully navigate the NICU experience and transition home. These guideline-compliant educational resources help parents and extended family members understand procedures, protocols, medical conditions and infant care so they can better adapt to baby's NICU stay and prepare for taking care of baby once they head home. Personal stories and insights shared by experts and other NICU families help support the best outcomes for both baby and family. The on-demand content helps reassure them about the care baby is receiving, answers their questions and gives them confidence in their ability to help their early arrival or medically fragile baby thrive.

The collaborative is pleased to have financial support of the NICU Staff Education and Family Support Program by Medela LLC. "We are proud to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to healthy outcomes of this vulnerable population through support of advancing staff education and access to parent resources," said Susan Rappin, vice president of marketing for Medela LLC.

About My NICU Network
My NICU Network was developed when three passionate and experienced women, with the support of their respected organizations (National Perinatal Association (NPA), Patient+Family Care (PFC) and Preemie Parent Alliance (PPA)), came together to address the known gap that neonatal units still have work to do to improve their family-centered care and family support practices.  

Based on the overwhelming evidence that families of babies hospitalized in the NICU should be intimately involved in the babies' care from the moment they are admitted in order to facilitate optimal healing for both baby and family, and to ensure a strong and healthy family unit at the time of the baby's discharge and beyond, these women were determined to not only help support NICU professionals learn the importance of supporting families but also provide them the tools necessary to improve their daily practices.

With their leadership and their strategic vision, along with a team of other professionals and NICU graduate parents, MyNICUnetwork was born.  For more information, visit http://www.mynicunetwork.com.

NEW YORK, November 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Cobalt, a metal somewhat overlooked by investors, is a critical component of lithium-ion batteries used in mobile devices and essential for the operation of electric vehicles (EVs). The spot price of cobalt has experienced an increase of 150 percent since the start of 2016, largely as a result of the exponential growth in the adoption of mobile technology in emerging economies. However, the real surge in global demand for cobalt will come from the automotive industry as more countries turn away from fossil fuel-driven cars to electric vehicles. To make the most of this surge in demand, Quantum Cobalt Corp. (CSE: QBOT) (FRA: 23B) (QBOT Profile) is focusing efforts on developing its Canadian cobalt resources centered near Cobalt, Ontario.

Quick Bullets:

China, Britain and France phasing out cars driven by fossil fuels in favor of alternatives

• Electric vehicles predicted to be as affordable as cars running on gasoline by 2022

Cobalt demand projected to surge from current 2,000 tons to 300,000 tons by 2030

Cobalt price forecast to rise from $60,000 per ton to $100,000 per ton by 2030

The greatest demand for the metal is likely to come from China, currently the world's top  consumer of cobalt and its  largest automotive industry. China recently announced a requirement that 20 percent of all cars sold by 2025 must operate on alternatives to fossil fuels. Britain and France have followed suit, declaring a ban on the sale of cars operating on fossil fuels by 2040 (http://nnw.fm/3uWhW). Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) is the leading manufacturer of EVs, making a significant contribution to the 2  million electrical vehicles on roads today. Other car manufacturers are scrambling to catch up. General Motors (NYSE: GM) has announced plans to launch a range of 20  EVs by 2023, while Volvo (OTC: VLVLY) is converting its technology to electric power by 2019. Volkswagen AG ADR (OTC: VLKAY) plans on investing $84 billion in car and battery production for the manufacture of 300 EV models by 2030. However, China will remain the world's largest consumer and producer of EVs for the foreseeable future. Consumers there bought 507,000 EVs in 2016, an increase of 53 percent over the previous year. That's double the sales in Europe and triple those sold in the U.S. From the current adoption rate of 1  percent of its automotive market, China is expected to see a 12 -fold increase in the number of EVs on its roads in five years' time.

Batteries account for 33 percent of the cost of manufacturing an electric vehicle. Bloomberg reports that the price of lithium-ion batteries fell by 35 percent in 2015 and is on a downward trajectory, which is predicted to make EVs as affordable as cars driven by fossil fuels by 2022 (http://nnw.fm/vzP0b). Bloomberg  also predicts that by 2040, electric vehicles will account for 35 percent of all new vehicle sales.

The major problem is that all these projects demand more cobalt than the world can currently supply. Over 95 percent of the world's cobalt is mined as a by-product of nickel and copper. As  prices of these two metals dropped in recent years, many mining companies cut production, contributing to a rising global cobalt deficit. MacQuarie Bank predicts a cobalt deficit of 885 tons in 2018, over 3,200 tons in 2019 and more than 5,300 tons in 2020. Quantum Cobalt Corp. (CSE: QBOT) (FRA: 23B) is positioning itself to take advantage of this market shortage by focusing  efforts on the development of its reserves in Canada. Currently, over 50 percent of the world's cobalt is mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The DRC presents mining companies with several ethical issues to contend with, including forced and child labor. The country is also affected by armed conflict and political instability, increasing the risk of investment. Consequently, several mining companies have divested their interests in the DRC and are turning to North America to develop alternative, safer and more ethical mining operations.

Quantum Cobalt has concentrated its efforts in the Cobalt Belt, centered near Cobalt, Ontario. Its Nipissing Lorrain Cobalt Project has produced 16,500 pounds of cobalt and 5,500 pounds of silver in the past, and historic samples show cobalt mineralization of one to 10  inches in this mine. Past assays have shown an unusually high grade of 22 percent cobalt in this play, which is exceptional when as little as 0.5 percent is deemed economically viable. The Rabbit Cobalt Project, located 55 kilometers north of Cobalt, has a rich history of both cobalt and gold production, and returned an historic assay of 8.76 percent cobalt. Quantum Cobalt is intent on conducting mapping, prospecting and sampling focused on the mineral showing on the Rabbit Lake Occurrence. Roughly 37 kilometers south of Cobalt is the company's Kahuna Cobalt Project, which comprises 77 claims over an area of 1,200 hectares and shows historic cobalt mineralization.

The company is geared up to proceed with imminent exploration and development of these properties. On October 25, 2017, the company announced that it had deployed field crews to conduct first pass exploration on both Kahuna and Rabbit Lake properties. This preliminary work entails prospecting, geologic mapping, geochemical surveying and sampling to locate and delineate mineralized structures.

Quantum Cobalt is led by an executive team of industry veterans and innovators. Its CEO, Greg Burns, has more than 22 years of experience in mineral exploration, holding several executive and operational management positions with mining and exploration companies in both Canada and Australia, including Goldstream Mining and Platinum Australia. He was previously managing director  of Xenolith, subsequently Coalspur Mining Ltd and taken over by the Cline Group in 2015. Burns  also headed up the mergers and acquisitions division of Capital Investment Partners, an investment bank in Western Australia.  Director Jerry Huang has held several executive positions with prominent mining companies, including TNR Gold and International Lithium, which received IPO funding from the largest battery company in China. Huang  has extensive knowledge and experience in drilling and exploration. Quinn Field-Dyte, director, has over 10 years of experience in the financial industry and currently serves on the boards of several companies in the mining and minerals industry that are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange.

Cobalt is in short supply and is a critical element used as the cathode in lithium-ion batteries, making up 35 percent of the component mix.  Current pricing of the metal is expected to soar with  Bloomberg forecasting an  increase to almost $100,000 per ton by 2030.  A massive surge in demand for cobalt is part of that forecast, predicting global growth from the 2,000 tons used now  to a startling 300,000 tons in 2030. This represents phenomenal growth in a market where Quantum Cobalt is ideally placed to meet future demand, increase revenues and develop outstanding shareholder value.

BERLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Envion AG has created a technology for the first truly mobile data-center that uses low-priced local energy to mine a broad spectrum of cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc.). By harvesting locally available clean energy right at the source, envion can operate at lower costs than competitors and at the same time reduces the CO2 footprint of the blockchain industry. Envion aims at decentralizing the highly-concentrated mining market (China holds 80% in Bitcoin mining) and at bringing control of the market back to the users. That’s why envion gives 100% of its mining profits back to its community.

Current challenges in the energy and blockchain industries

The blockchain industry is suffering from an ever-increasing energy demand. This can mainly be explained by the fact that transactions take up high amounts of mostly fossil energy. At the same time, envion sees an ever-increasing production of clean regenerative energy, which frequently gets lost due to maxed out energy grids. This results in locally available excess energy, as solar power plants produce overcapacities. These overcapacities can now efficiently be used by envion’s innovative mobile mining units.

Envion’s solutions

Envion has developed fully automated (“industry 4.0”), mobile mining units (MMU) inside standardized intermodal shipping containers that can be shipped to virtually any location in the world within days or weeks, decentralizing the blockchain infrastructure. Envion mobile mining units are designed and built to operate at remote locations near energy sources such as solar plants, wind turbines or hydropower plants. This allows envion to make use of energy overcapacities in a profitable setting. The mobility of the MMU furthermore allows for targeted placement of the units at sites requiring thermal energy and can be used for heating. This way, envion recycles energy consumed in the MMU for external heating purposes in buildings or greenhouses and achieves revolutionarily low electricity prices.

Envion’s MMUs can be integrated into a smart grid and flexibly move energy demand closer to energy supply and hence, take the burden off the grid.

Investment opportunities

Envion’s ambitious goal is to have the lowest cost structure in the blockchain mining industry. By combining GPU-based mining with ASIC mining, investors in EVN tokens receive a 161% ROI after administrative deductions, according to envion’s whitepaper. Its unique position as the only truly mobile mining operation combined with a tested, optimized and streamlined technology puts them among the top players, even in this highly competitive market - but with considerably lower risks involved. The key aspect here is that, following a community-approach, 100% of mining profits will directly go to the EVN token holder community. 75% of this will be distributed to token holders on a weekly basis, the remaining 25% will be re-invested in MMUs to keep on growing the profits for the community. The pioneering company does not stop here, however, they construct and operate mobile mining units for third party operations as well. This means that third party investors acquire envion hardware, while 35% of these profits go directly to EVN token holders.

Altogether this looks like the best way to invest into the high dividend blockchain industry and at the same time minimize risks as envion is not dependent on a single market player.

The investment period (ICO) starts Dec. 1st, 2017. Visit www.envion.org for more information.

GOLDEN, Colo., Nov. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CoorsTek, the world's leading engineered ceramics manufacturer, today announced that a team of scientists from CoorsTek Membrane Sciences, the University of Oslo (Norway) and the Instituto de Tecnología Química (Spain) have successfully completed laboratory testing of a ceramic membrane that generates compressed hydrogen from natural gas and electricity in a one-step process with near zero energy loss.  The ceramic membrane makes production of hydrogen from abundant, low-cost natural gas so efficient that it will make hydrogen the cleanest and least expensive option for future automotive fueling — surpassing both electricity and petroleum. Results of the team's breakthrough development were recently published in the prestigious peer-reviewed scientific journal Nature Energy in the research report "Thermo-electrochemical production of compressed hydrogen from methane with near-zero energy loss."

Infographic | How hydrogen from ceramic membranes can be cleaner and cheaper than electricity for next-gen vehicles
Infographic | How hydrogen from ceramic membranes can be cleaner and cheaper than electricity for next-gen vehicles

The research report builds on 20 years of experience in the development and manufacturing of ceramic membranes at CoorsTek. The present membrane is made from oxides of abundant materials (including barium, zirconia, and yttrium), forming a solid ceramic electrolyte that can transport hydrogen in the form of protons at temperatures from 400 to 900 °C. By applying an electric potential over the ceramic cell, hydrogen is not only separated from other gases but also electrochemically compressed. 

"Our breakthrough ceramic membrane technology makes it possible for hydrogen-fueled vehicles to have superior energy efficiency with lower greenhouse gas emissions compared to a battery electric vehicle charged with electricity from the grid," said Per Vestre, Managing Director at CoorsTek Membrane Sciences. "The potential for this technology also goes well beyond lowering the cost and environmental impact of fueling motor vehicles.  With high-volume CoorsTek engineered ceramic manufacturing capabilities, we can make ceramic membranes cost-competitive with traditional energy conversion technology for both industrial-scale and smaller-scale hydrogen production."

Hydrogen is an energy carrier for next-generation fuel cell electric vehicles, and is already an important molecule for a range of industrial processes from food processing to manufacturing of glass and semiconductors, with ammonia-based fertilizers as the single largest application for hydrogen today. While a fuel cell electric vehicle will only need about 0.4 kg of hydrogen per day for typical family use, a world-scale ammonia plant needs a million times more, from 200 to 600 tons of hydrogen per day.   CoorsTek Membrane Sciences research indicates that ceramic membranes can be a competitive technology for hydrogen production with integrated carbon capture, even at a scale required for cost-effective ammonia production.  

"By combining an endothermic chemical reaction with an electrically operated gas separation membrane, we can create energy conversions with near zero energy loss", explains Dr. Jose Serra, Professor with Instituto de Tecnología Química (ITQ) in Valencia, Spain, a leading research lab for hydrocarbon chemistry and a co-author of the report in Nature Energy. "When you have the technology to convert energy from one form to another with almost no loss of energy, this opens up new ways to think about energy systems. For example, we can use the ceramic membrane technology to produce hydrogen from water. This will require more electric power than reforming of methane, but if electricity is available from renewable sources we can make hydrogen without CO2 emissions. You can also think one step further and design energy systems that are not only low carbon or zero carbon, but even have negative carbon emissions. This will be the case if you use renewable electricity to reform biogas to hydrogen, and store the produced carbon from the biogas underground. In this way, hydrogen can one day become a negative emission energy carrier."

SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Alta Energy, a leading renewable energy analytics and procurement services provider, announced today that it has completed the installation of solar power systems at 14 campuses across California’s Poway Unified School District (PUSD). Alta Energy installed a total of 632 kilowatts (kW) on 65 of PUSD’s standard 24 by 40 feet relocatable, portable classrooms. Financed through a power purchase agreement (PPA) with no out-of-pocket costs to the district, the project reduces PUSD’s electricity expenses by nearly 15 percent and will save the district $250,000 per year.

The project is unique in its approach of installing solar panels on the roofs of the portable classroom buildings at each campus. Installing solar on these buildings enables the use of standardized designs that are quicker, less expensive and less disruptive to install than more conventional designs such as solar parking canopies. There are an estimated 80,000 such buildings in the California public school system, representing about 30 percent of all K-12 classrooms in the state.

The installations enable PUSD to switch to a more favorable electric rate from its utility, San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E). In California, major utilities offer solar-friendly rates with lower demand charges as a benefit to customers who install solar power systems. For schools, switching to these rates can dramatically cut electricity bills, since demand charges often represent more than half of a school’s electricity bill. Prior to installing solar at these campuses, demand charges constituted 65 percent of PUSD’s electricity bills. After the project, those charges were reduced to only 30 percent of the total bill.

“Placing solar on our relocatable classrooms and switching to SDG&E’s solar-friendly rate is going to yield significant savings for the district,” said Chad Koster, director of facilities at Poway Unified School District. “We are always looking for innovative ways to cut operating costs. This project will enable us to do that and have a positive environmental impact at the same time.”

Energy bills are a significant financial burden for schools in California. California public schools spend about $700 million per year on energy, which is comparable with their budget for books and supplies. By installing relatively small solar power systems that generate only 10 to 20 percent of their total electricity consumption, schools can switch to solar-friendly rates that often provide dramatic energy bill reductions.

“The Poway solar project is based on a different strategy than most solar projects at schools,” said Marc Roper, chief commercial officer of Alta Energy. “Instead of maximizing the amount of solar power generation per campus with custom, one-off system designs, we used a cookie-cutter approach to install solar on existing portable classrooms. This provides PUSD just enough solar to trigger an electric utility rate switch, allowing the district to save significantly, while minimizing risk and impact on the district’s operations. It’s a great model with broad applicability, as these portable classrooms can be found in virtually every school district in the state.”

Representatives from PUSD and Alta Energy will elaborate on PUSD’s sustainability projects at the Green California School Summit in Pasadena, California on November 29th on a panel titled “Tackling Demand Charges Strategically with Solar and Storage at PUSD.” They will be joined by Stephen Kelley, senior vice president of Green Charge, to discuss PUSD’s solar and energy storage projects and share best practices for other school districts to realize savings on their electricity bills.

MATE 1

Mate 1 is VAPECCINO's first product, injecting the brand's ideas and adopting light tech to create purer tastes. The cores of MATE 1 include GCT, VIS, vCharge, Auto Process, Minimalist Design and Large Battery.

GCT for Purer Taste  

VAPECCINO MATE 1 is the first vaporizer adopting GCT for creating purer taste. GCT, an advanced Nano tech, presents strong antioxidation and keeps high cleanness by preventing ejuice's carbides from gluing to the coil, so that it prolongs the vaporizer's lifespan and keeps the taste pure.

Large Battery Capacity and vCharge

The GCT atomizer is eqippped with 410mAh lithium battery. Additionally, with the vCharge (fast charge) function, it only takes 25 minutes to fully charge. The combination of large battery, quick charge and purer taste take the vaporizer to another level, with longer vaping time and an enjoyment of taste.

VIS

VIS involves three parts: side-to-bottom airflow, perfect ejuice-intaking holes and splash proof design. MATE 1 is designed in details, to avoid leakage and condensation, and to provide larger vapor, dry burnt proof and a purer taste.

Intelligent Reminders

MATE 1 not only includes a motor reminder for vaping reminders, but also a G-sensor for smart LED to display battery status. What's more, although MATE 1 possesses dual atomizers, MTL & DL, the device is able to recognize both resistances.

ABOUT VAPECCINO

Established on December 18, 2016, VAPECCINO devotes itself to providing better vaporizers and works hand in hand with users to create a new kind of vaping lifestyle, and to produce intelligent vaporizers with purer taste.

We've spent a lot more time lately looking at the structure of U.S. power markets. Why? Because they're about to get shaken up.

It's already begun. In this episode, we'll look at how renewables are upending wholesale power markets today -- and what we can do about it.

We'll examine the issue from a few different angles.

Wood Mackenzie's Prajit Gosh describes why low-price events are becoming more common in wholesale markets than high-price events. He'll also look at the impact on other generation sources.

MAKE Consulting's Dan Shreve talks about what's driving cost reductions in wind. 

And GTM's Shayle Kann will look at the "vicious cycle" of low prices, and how to manage the wholesale market transition in the U.S.

This podcast is sponsored by Schneider Electric. Now, you can reap the benefits of a microgrid with no upfront capital through the new microgrid-as-a-service business model from Schneider Electric. Find out how it works.

The Tottori green project bond consists of a dual-tenor maturity of 1.5 years and 18.3 years, representing the initial and extended tenor respectively, within a single-tranche of the bond. This dual-tenor structure makes full repayment of the bond flexible, while enabling a potential sale of the solar power plant to Canadian Solar Infrastructure Fund, recently listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

The Japan Credit Rating Agency, Ltd. ("JCR") assigned the Tottori project an investment grade rating of "A", making it the fourth project by Canadian Solar in Japan to receive such a rating and in line with the highest ratings reported in the Japan PV sector. Furthermore, the Japan Research Institution, Limited ("JRI") independently certified the designation as a green bond, in accordance with the Green Bond Principles (2016) published by the International Capital Market Association ("ICMA"). The asset-backed, non-recourse bond was issued at par and pays a fixed coupon of 1.2725% per annum during the initial tenor and, if extended at the option of Canadian Solar, 1.3113% per annum thereafter. Goldman Sachs Japan Co., Ltd. acted as the bond arranger and Hitachi Capital Trust Corp., was appointed as trustee. 

Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Solar Inc. commented, "We are very proud to announce the issuance of a second dual-tenor green project bond at a low coupon rate.
