A 'flexible degression cap' was introduced, under which the degression rate could be adjusted to keep the uptake of photovoltaics within a specified corridor. The support for onshore wind improved. The initial tariff was raised, the repowering when old turbines are replaced by new bonus Repoweringbonus was increased, and an additional system service bonus was granted for specified technical contributions Systemdienstleistungen or SDL , including the ability to maintain voltage if the transmission grid fails.

The tariff for offshore wind was raised substantially. An additional 'early starter bonus' was offered for offshore wind farms entering operation before Support of biomass was also increased, with special bonuses for a number of different biomass types. Biomass must also comply with specified ecological requirements to be eligible, these requirements being contained in a separate 'sustainability ordinance' Nachhaltigkeitsverordnung or BioSt-NachV.

The hydroelectricity tariffs were raised considerably and particularly for micro and small power plants. The tariffs for geothermal energy were raised considerably too, as was the cogeneration bonus. An additional 'early starter bonus' was introduced for geothermal projects put into operation before A 'green power privilege' Grünstromprivileg was introduced, which exempted electricity suppliers with a minimum quota of renewables from the EEG surcharge under certain circumstances.

New measures allowed grid operators to temporarily limit wind turbine output in times of network congestion, with compensation payable to the plant owner for lost remuneration.

The government launched its national Energy Concept in September It was becoming clear that action on the photovoltaic remuneration was necessary. The growth in photovoltaics had exceeded all expectations. As a result, the support costs had skyrocketed. The feed-in rate itself was dependent on the system size and the proportion of demand that was consumed on-site.

Free-standing systems were excluded from using agricultural land. The PV Interim Act introduced the possibility of further downward adjustments for the photovoltaic tariffs during the year. It also modified the flexible cap to better control the growth of photovoltaics. In application of the EEG version in force at the time, [29] no further adjustment to the feed-in tariffs occurred in The new EEG sought to advance the dynamic expansion of renewable electricity generation, control the rising costs associated with the scheme, and enhance market and grid integration, while adhering to the principles of a feed-in system.

The revised system includes a market premium scheme, the market premium was intended to prepare renewables for the market and to eventually lower their dependence on explicit policy measures. The rising shares of variable renewable generation had led to concerns about the ability of the electricity system to cope. The new act included measures for the grid integration of photovoltaic systems.

Grid operators could now limit the feed-in of photovoltaics in times of grid overload, with the plant operators receiving compensation for their loss of revenue. A new ordinance required the retrofitting of photovoltaic systems to avoid the The system services bonus for onshore wind was extended and the repowering bonus was improved.

Offshore wind gained through improved early starter provisions. The biomass tariff system itself was greatly simplified, with now four size categories and two fuel categories.

The tariffs for geothermal energy were raised and the start of the degression postponed until , albeit at an increased rate. Electricity storage facilities were fully exempted from grid charges and are to be supported by a special research program. Industry privileges under the special equalisation scheme were extended to include more companies and the tariff reductions further improved.

As a result, the number of exempt firms rose from in to about in The exempted electricity load rose from Industrial self-consumption, previously exempted from the EEG surcharge, was now subject to the surcharge if the public grid was used, except in special circumstances. This measure was aimed at preventing abuse through contracting.

The introduction of an optional market premium was designed to support demand-oriented electricity generation. The market premium is the difference between the EEG tariff and the average spot market price. An additional management premium reimbursed administration costs and mitigated against market risks. An additional flexibility premium was introduced for gas storage at biogas facilities. The details of the market premium were to be provided in a following governmental directive, following parliamentary approval.

The green power privilege was also modified. The renewables targets remained unchanged and are identical to those specified in the Energy Concept.

In , after numerous complaints, the European Commission opened an in-depth state aid investigation into the EEG surcharge exemptions for energy-intensive companies and into the green power privilege. Despite the cutbacks in photovoltaic support, photovoltaic installations continued to boom. For the first time, cost control became the "determining factor" in the political debate over the EEG. This was despite the fact that the merit order effect had been depressing electricity spot prices.

The merit order effect occurs when preferentially dispatched wind and photovoltaic generation displaces more expensive fossil fuel generation from the margin — often gas-fired combined cycle plant — thereby driving down the cleared price. This effect is more pronounced for photovoltaics because their midday peak correlates with the maximum generation requirement on the system.

The merit order effect also lowers the revenues for conventional power plants and makes them less economically viable.

A study finds that "in the case of the year , the volume of the merit order effect exceeds the volume of the net support payments for renewable electricity generation which have to be paid by consumers". If new additions exceed this corridor, the degression rises by 1. The self-consumption privilege was removed for new installations, as grid parity was already met: The residual electricity could either be self-consumed or sold on the electricity market.

The act is available in English. In turn they receive a market premium from the grid operator to compensate for the difference between the fixed EEG payment and the average spot price for electricity. The purpose of this Act is to enable the energy supply to develop in a sustainable manner in particular in the interest of mitigating climate change and protecting the environment, to reduce the costs to the economy not least by including long-term external effects, to conserve fossil energy resources and to promote the further development of technologies to generate electricity from renewable energy sources.

The EEG also contains statutory targets for the share of renewable energy in gross final electricity consumption the targets are additional to those set out in the government's Energy Concept statement [16]:. The level of remuneration is still prescribed under the EEG until However the way that new installations receive their remuneration has changed. Most plant operators must now directly market their output, for which they get an additional market premium payment instead of an explicit feed-in tariff.

This premium is the difference between the average monthly wholesale price at the EEX energy exchange and the fixed remuneration stated in the EEG. From — onwards, defined remuneration rates will be replaced by competitive bidding, also known as auctions or tenders. Those investors offering the lowest prices will then receive support. The flexible cap mechanism for expansion corridors was replaced with set annual targets for the addition of wind, photovoltaic, and biogas capacity.

The government hopes these new corridors will lead to a better coordination between renewables and the use and expansion of the transmission network , as well as improving planning security for conventional generators. The target corridor for photovoltaics is set at 2.

Photovoltaic installations beyond this upper bound will not receive funding under the EEG. The remuneration for photovolatic installations is reduced 0.

Onshore wind retained its annual target of 2. However the target now excludes repowering, effectively extending the growth cap. The management premium and the bonus paid to wind farms providing stabilizing features Systemdienstleistungen are now being phased out. From onwards, the onshore wind tariff is reduced quarterly, depending on whether new capacity tracks the prescribed target. For offshore wind, the new act defines a target of 6.

Offshore wind farms that entered service before can choose between a fixed payment for 8 years or a reduced payment for 12 years. After this period, the basic reward is reduced still further, depending on the distance from shore and the depth of the sea. The biomass target is set at 0. Only biogas plants that use biowaste and liquid manure will receive more than the standard remuneration, depending on their capacity.

Tariffs are to be reduced by 0. The BMWi also stated that the competition was high and that prices fell from round to round. It added that small bidders were able to win tenders. These results will be used to develop auctions for other renewable electricity generation technologies. These figures confirm a falling trend from auction to auction. The following explains some of the process prior to the final legislation.

The reform is being driven by three guiding principles, namely the need: The government believes that the new auction system will control costs. The new system also accords with the desire of the European Commission for renewables support to be market-based. To this end, a suite of complex calculations Referenzertragsmodell are being developed to ensure that bids are comparable and payments are fair. It replaces prescribed feed-in tariffs with an auction system for the majority of renewable technologies.

It repeats the deployment corridors specified in the EEG to control the uptake of renewable electricity over the next decade and to ensure that future renewable energy targets are honored. This corridor will be maintained by auctioning only a defined capacity each year. Each technology — photovoltaics, onshore wind, offshore wind, and biomass — will get an auction design tailored to its needs.

As indicated above, the auction system was piloted in for ground-mounted photovoltaic facilities. As a result of this trial, the Economics and Energy Ministry BMWi abandoned ' uniform pricing ' in favor of ' pay-as-bid '.

Starting in , there will be between three and four auctions per year for photovoltaics and onshore wind. Participants will submit single sealed bids and will have to provide a substantial security deposit to ensure good faith.

Bids are tied to projects and locations and cannot normally be transferred. The lowest bids will win until the capacity under auction is met. A ceiling price is to be notified in advance.

A Texas Grand Jury has brought two more indictments against Rep. Tom DeLay , in addition to an earlier criminal conspiracy indictment.

The latest two indictments are for money laundering. Department of Justice is participating in a criminal probe of DeLay for his political fundraising activities in Great Britain, an investigation that includes DeLay 's The Boeing used to fly the mercenaries to Equatorial Guinea via Zimbabwe where it was impounded.

It has been a significant contributor to the Republican National Committee. If convicted on the Texas money laundering charges alone, DeLay faces up to life in prison. The Guardian reported that the "sexual humiliation of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison was not an invention of maverick guards, but. These are all techniques long employed by Israel. As Batya Feldman of Israel 's Globes financial news service put it, the visit provided Israel i companies with "an excellent opportunity to encounter big bucks in homeland security.

The head of the American defense contracting firm implicated in the torture of Iraqis at Abu Ghraib prison has close ties to Israel and visited an Israel i "anti-terror" training camp in the occupied West Bank earlier this year. The purpose of the visit, according to a CACI press release, was "to promote opportunities for strategic partnerships and joint ventures between US and Israel i defense and homeland security companies.

According to a former top U. No laws exist to apply U. After a San Francisco Chronicle series focusing on the jail's regular and illegal practice of strip-searching inmates ran last year, some changes were made, but Bull said this and other inhumane practices in jails across the country illustrate the need for fundamental, systemic changes. People need to realize that there is an underclass in this country that suffers this same kind of institutional violence.

The issue of the CIA 's treat ment of detainees first arose after agency officials sought legal guidance on how far its employees and contractors could go in interrogating suspects and whether the law barred the CIA from using extreme methods, including feigned drowning, in the interrogation of Abu Zubaydah, the first of the al-Qaeda leaders captured by the US. He was apprehended in Pakistan in early It was in response to this reply that Bybee gave his ruling defining the scope of torture, which was later swiftly revoked when it became public.

If army officers were taking direction from contractors then we have worse problems than prison abuse in Iraq as bad as that may turn out to be. That means the Army has either given up command of its own missions or has so few intel soldiers left that they can't function anymore.

If thats the case then we can kiss the hopes of those 50 million Iraqis goodbye. That contract will likely keep Titan 's force of over 4, translators working in Iraq until September As civilians, contractors can't be tried in military courts.

Last year, the Coalition Provision Authority declared that foreign civilians in Iraq can not tried in Iraqi courts. When asked during last month's Senate hearings if the Both Titan and CACI have repeatedly denied allegations that their personnel have been involved in any illegal activity or wrongdoing.

They have said the lawsuit against them is unfounded and have stood by specific employees accused of The visitor, whom Akeel will identify only as "Saleh," explained he had been held at Abu Ghraib, Saddam Hussein's most notorious prison, not once, but twice. The first time, he said, was for opposing Saddam's regime.

After his release, he fled to Sweden. His story is among the worst told by 13 Iraqis who have filed two unusual lawsuits - longshot attempts to hold American civilian contractors responsible for torture in Iraq, allegations that they strongly deny. One of those prisoners, according to Akeel's lawsuit, was Sami Abbas Majdel Al Rawi, 56, owner of a Baghdad company involved in reconstruction contracts with the U. He was arrested with his son, Mwafaq, a year-old lawyer, on March 1 at Baghdad International Airport.

Akeel said the father and son told of being beaten, handcuffed, hooded, deprived of food and water, not allowed to use a toilet, and forced to stand on one leg for long periods at an airport jail.

Paul Bremer, neither soldiers nor private contractors can be charged in Iraq with any crime committed in the course of their duties. Although soldiers can be charged under USA military laws, those statutes contain no provisions for charging civilians Even before the words "Abu Ghraib" were on everyone's lips,.

In March the Pentagon 's Defense Contract Audit Agency discovered "deficiencies in the labor accounting controls" on one of Titan 's Iraq gigs, prompting the Army to penalize the company. The firm's most recent K report, an official document that must be filed annually with stock market regulators, acknowledges it is being investigated for its dealings overseas.

At Titan , Williams downplayed the legal issues. He added that the controversy with the DCAA "has already been solved. Whatever they've found, we've already fixed it. He characterized the various inspectors general probes as routine and said that Titan 's marriage to Lockheed was on track. At a time when other businesses continue to struggle, notably those whose fortunes aren't hitched to the war on terrorism, CACI has enjoyed growth reminiscent of the dot-com era, on.

In contrast to Titan , CACI hasn't gotten entangled with the law in more than a decade, but the firm definitely has skeletons in its closet: The companies strenuously deny any wrongdoing. By privatizing, they seek to subvert the Geneva Conventions on war and other universal standards of human rights. It is irresponsible and dangerous to use contractors in such settings given that there is a long history of repeated human rights abuses by contractors.

The Philadephia attorney charges that the use of private contractors is illegal. Robert Joseph , the man who personally inserted the infamous sixteen words about Saddam Hussein allegedly buying uranium from Niger into Bush's Robert Joseph ignored the findings of foreign intelligence agencies by reinserting the claim. If the Pentagon punished the companies, that could deter others from offering outsourcing services, they said.

Viele Indizien sprechen mittlerweile dafür, dass die Liebe zwischen Mutter und Kind vor der romantischen Liebe existierte. Etwa aus der Verhaltensforschung: Das ist bei Tieren nicht anders: Wenn ein Spatz um ein Weibchen wirbt, zittert er mit den Flügeln wie ein bettelndes Küken. Die Angebetete reagiert mit zärtlichem Füttern. Auch beim Menschen hat Eibl-Eibesfeldt viele solcher Infantilismen beobachtet. Die Trippelschritte etwa, mit denen sich traditionell gekleidete Japanerinnen fortbewegen, sind verhaltensbiologisch nichts anderes als das Zittern des Sperlings: Und wenn der Büronachbar mit der Geliebten telefoniert, wechselt er in eine höhere Tonlage, was auch typisch ist für die Mutter-Kind-Kommunikation.

So wies der Psychologe Seth Pollack von der University of Wisconsin nach, dass das Liebeshormon Oxytocin bei Kindern nur eine geringe Aktivität entfaltet, wenn sie keine Mutterliebe erfahren haben. Und auch Spuren im Gehirn, die ein früher Liebesmangel hinterlässt, könnten die spätere Bindungsfähigkeit beeinträchtigen. Darauf deuten Versuche mit Strauchratten hin.

Eine Trennung des Neugeborenen von seiner Mutter kam in den Sechzigerjahren häufig vor. Oft war es nicht mehr als eine Stunde pro Woche. Remember the drug plane -- the DC9 caught in Mexico hauling 5.

As we saw earlier, the plane bore the logo of Skyway , a scam company put together by Brent Kovar, a noted con artist who -- just like Brent Wilkes -- brags about his CIA connections. To read the rest, click "Permalink" below The Skyway scam is complex, as these things often tend to be.

Basically, Kovar told investors that he held the patent on a new wireless data transmission technology, which -- he claimed -- would revolutionize aircraft-to-ground communications.

Supposedly, Skyway bought the airliner to test out the communication system. But the system was a fake. That's when the plane was discovered hauling cocaine. Skyway has had a strange relationship with yet another defense contractor, Titan Corp oration: SkyWay Communications Holding Corp.

Government for use with selected military and homeland security applications. This is all very intriguing -- because Skyway 's "services" as investors discovered were bogus. This blog's first post on this topic attracted some particularly interesting commentary, including the following: Digging into the details of this patent, I'm astonished at the impudence of Mr. Kovar to declare this his invention.

All of the components are common knowledge, the arrays, the pointers, even the idea of using a time tick to syncronize data and reduce the amount of data to be transmitted this has been used in encryption for secure communciations long before. This begs the question, does Mr. Kovar have any serious background in programming or who coobled this mishmash together for Skyway s?

And pls note that nowhere in the patent the special issues of using wireless ground to air radio transmission are addressed.

Imho the problems that are asscociated with this garbled transmissions may lead to loss of syncronicity, clock signals may be lost will render this whole "invention" useless.

Even though Skyway peddled worthless goods -- and Titan must have known that they were worthless -- Titan promised to funnel millions of dollars' worth of business to Kovar's pseudo-company. Now, why have I dealt with the Kovar con in the context of a dicussion of Wilkes? Because the ever-intriguing Daniel Hopsicker has found a somewhat indirect, but nevertheless intriguing link.

Like Wilkes , Titan was a major G. Skyway also heavily contributed to Republican causes. The Titan executive who announced the strange deal with Skyway was one David Stinson. This individual, Hopsicker found, was the executive vice president of another defense firm, called Intergraph.

Intergraph is a genuine firm; they have provided software to some renown companies, including Mobil and Bechtel. Although Hopsicker says that Intergraph is based in Annopolis, Maryland, the company claims that their main office is in Huntsville, Alabama.

Can our story become even more complicated? Sorry, folks, but we're going to have to talk about still another shadowy "defense" firm. This one is called TomaHawk II. The name derives from an alleged connection to Native Americans: All four branches of the military will be covered under the contract. This is awfully confusing. Why would a document conversion firm hire a document conversion firm?

And why would Intergraph jump into the deal? Let's go back to Laura Rozen , who will help our understanding So Wade learned his tricks of the trade from Wilkes , and Wilkes learned some of his tricks, the suit alleges, from Steve Caira, the owner of a San Diego-based document conversion company called TomaHawk II.

And while Cunnigham was first Wilkes ' and then Wade's benefactor, according to this lawsuit, Caira's benefactor was Rep. What's also incredible if true is the lawsuit's allegation that Caira gave 15, stock shares in his company to the DoD official who awarded Caira's company, TomaHawk II, a Pentagon contract facilitated by Hunter on the Appropriations committee.

And who lobbied for TomaHawk II? Companies, now Pace-Capstone , back Get your head around that. Pace-Capstone represents Indian tribes and the Mariana Islands.

In other words, we are suddenly thrust back into Jack Abramoff territory. As a side note, I should mention that back in the mid-'90s, various news stories started to uncover a series of scandals involving spooks, mobsters and shady "defense" contractors, all of whom were muscling their way onto the reservations.

Using Indian tribes as a cover provides all sorts of advantages. If you are interested, try googling the names "Cabazon" and "Nichols. Among the founders was one Dennis R. Di Ricco of Portola Valley, a former attorney who resigned from the bar He was convicted later on tax and obstruction of justice charges Audre went into bankruptcy because a judge declared that the company was jointly and severally responsible for payments to Casey's ex-wife. Di Ricco testified he helped launder hundreds of thousands of dollars and supplied large quantites of cash for use as payola, in the largest record industry payola case in U.

So let's simplify matters. Let's focus on what we know. We know that Intergraph, under David Stinson, was involved in their dealings.
