Whether you’re a fan or not, there’s no denying that Miley Cyrus has an incredible voice – especially when digging into some of the older classics. On Friday’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the pop-punk princess performed Bob Dylan‘s original “Baby, I’m In the Mood for You” alongside The Roots.While the song was first recorded in 1962 by Dylan, it was made famous in 1965 by singer Odetta. Cyrus performed the Odetta, more upbeat version of the song.Watch her full performance below:
Vineyard Wind has released a study showing that its proposed 800MW wind farm offshore Massachusetts, US, would have reduced emissions and saved costs in comparison to other energy sources during the Grayson cyclone had it been installed.The study, prepared by Daymark Energy Advisors, demonstrated that the wind farm would have provided 61 million kilowatt-hours of emission-free generation over the bomb cyclone period from 4 to 7 January, based on wind conditions recorded.The project would have produced enough lower-cost electricity to reduce regional wholesale electric prices by nearly USD 20 per MWh, saving New England customers over USD 31 million and Massachusetts customers almost USD 15 million, according to the study.Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from New England power generators would have also been reduced by 67,485 metric tons, and the farm would have contributed 32,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas reduction benefits that are legally-mandated by the Massachusetts’ Global Warming Solutions Act (GWSA).Continuous cold weather conditions before and during the cyclone resulted in an increase in wholesale gas prices ten times higher than the annual average price during 2017. High prices for natural gas impact the wholesale electricity market because that fuel is used to generate more than half of New England’s electricity during normal weather, Vineyard Wind said.According to the company, regional pipeline constraints cause gas prices for power generation to soar during periods of extreme cold weather because natural gas is prioritized for home heating. In turn, power stations are forced to burn emission-intensive oil to fuel their turbines, which release tons of excess greenhouse gases and pollutants.The Vineyard Wind project would have run at full capacity for nearly all four days, relieving the need to burn either natural gas or heating oil, reducing emissions and savings costs even during the coldest weather, the developer said.“The report clearly details the importance of developing offshore wind at the earliest possible date in Massachusetts,” said Erich Stephens, Chief Development Officer of Vineyard Wind.“The sooner we start building the Commonwealth’s first offshore wind project, the sooner local residents and businesses will benefit from the abundant environmental and economic advantages that are associated with large-scale renewable and sustainable offshore wind energy.”Vineyard Wind submitted a proposal to deliver power generated by its 800MW offshore wind farm some 14 miles from Martha’s Vineyard, shortly after they applied for federal and state construction permits with the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) and the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities’ Energy Facilities Siting Board for the construction of the project.By filing for construction permits in 2017, Vineyard Wind is on track to complete the permitting process in time to begin in-state construction in 2019, and be fully operational by 2021.
Bayern Munich set record after record as it sealed another Bundesliga title this season.A sluggish start under former boss Niko Kovac was almost forgotten as Hansi Flick led a charge to glory. Bayern clinched its latest silverware with a 1-0 win at relegation-threatened Werder Bremen on Tuesday, with Robert Lewandowski scoring the winner in the first half. Here is a look at some of the records and personal bests the club established in a history-making campaign:Eight in a rowBayern’s dominance reached a new peak as it extended its streak to eight successive Bundesliga triumphs.A record 30th title looked in doubt in the European autumn as the club stuttered, but it has sauntered to glory with two games to spare.Borussia Monchengladbach (1975-77) and Bayern (1972-74, 1985-87, 1999-2001) had previously achieved three in a row, but this era of dominance by one team is unprecedented in Germany.Muller, the ultimate helping handThomas Muller was the World Cup’s Golden Boot winner with Germany in 2010 and has been a regular goal hero for Bayern for over a decade, but there is more about him than an assured finish.The 30-year-old has become king of the assists in the Bundesliga this term, racking up 20 to match the highest total achieved since data collection began in 1992-93.Opta statistics showed that Muller drew level with the total set by Kevin De Bruyne for Wolfsburg in the 2014-15 season.Lethal LewandowskiLewandowski’s goals have provided the fuel for Bayern’s surge over the second half of the season. The Poland striker has recorded his best haul of 31 Bundesliga goals and notched 46 across in competitions, a personal high in his Bayern career.For a while, he even looked like he would challenge Gerd Muller’s league record of 40 goals in a single campaign, but that is surely out of reach now.Bayern clicks with FlickFlick won a startling 26 of his first 29 games in charge across all competitions, the best start by any Bayern boss, beating Pep Guardiola’s 22 in 27.Kovac lost his job after winning five of the opening 10 Bundesliga games this season, with three draws and two defeats. The required standard is higher than that Bayern, but Flick’s success to date has surpassed all expectations. Goal glutBayern has scored 93 goals in its 32 Bundesliga games, a record for that period. It’s teed up for a shot at the 34-game league record of 101 goals, set by Bayern in 1971-72.The club’s haul of 132 goals in 45 games across all competitions is also a record by a German team.Bayern has scored at least four goals in a game 12 times, a figure last achieved by Stuttgart in the 1996-97 season. It owns the record with four or more on 13 occasions in 1973-74.
