Microsoft is stepping up its commitment to reduce the impact its data centers have on the environment, with a goal to use 50 percent renewable energy by 2018.A wind farm in Norfolk, EnglandAs more services move to the cloud, online giants are building more data centers to keep up.On Thursday, Microsoft said it will step up its commitment to reduce the impact its data centers have on the environment.Across the tech sector, we need to recognize that data centers will rank by the middle of the next decade among the largest users of electrical power on the planet, Brad Smith, the company's president and chief legal officer, said in a blog post.Today, roughly 44 percent of the electricity used by Microsoft s data centers comes from renewable energy sources, he said.And it's experimenting with undersea data centers, which may be able to tap into offshore wind farms and require less energy for cooling.
MoreApple CEO Tim Cook waves as he attends a talk in Beijing October 23, 2014.China Daily/via REUTERS/File PhotoBEIJING Reuters - The head of China's industry and technology regulator stressed Chinese users' security in a meeting with Apple Inc's chief executive in Beijing, as the U.S. tech titan stumbles in its biggest offshore market.China's ruling Communist Party has also embarked on a campaign to promote domestic technology, which it sees as more secure, and reduce the country's reliance on foreign tech products, especially in critical industries such as finance."I hope Apple can expand its business in China, deepen its cooperation in research and development and industrial supply chains, and provide a convenient and secure user experience for Chinese consumers," said Miao Wei, the head of China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology MIIT ."China has set a clear precedent with nearly every other tech company that operating in the country comes with certain strings attached, including significant investment in China's tech sector," said Ben Thompson, an analyst who writes at Stratechery.com."Apple has largely escaped this requirement, thanks to its appeal to customers instead of big business, but it seems likely the Chinese government is trying to end that exemption."
The new documents, Muffett said, show that oil companies clearly preferred to invest in research to explain away the climate risks, instead of on technologies to reduce emissions.Burn off oil fume flames are seen on an offshore oil platform.There is no doubt that increases in fossil fuel usage and decreases of forest cover are aggravating the potential problem of increased CO2 in the atmosphere.The research included burning oil to clear areas of fog and smog, and constructing massive artificial heat mountains out of asphalt to increase rainfall.Bigger drilling rigs, Muffett said, are an example of the profound distinction of how these companies were protecting their own interests and not the public s.This week, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced that April 2016 was the 12th consecutive month to set a global temperature record.For now, the group s new searchable database allows users to identify connections between companies, research institutes and individuals.
In order to help the states meet that goal, two energy companies are vying to implement floating wind turbine farms off the coast of Oahu that could supply a large amount of the island s power needs.But for a state committed to the sanctity of both the environment and animals, building offshore wind farms isn t necessarily an ideal plan.Hawaii Wind has offered to build two separate wind farms in federal waters: one about 12 miles off of Kaena Point on the northwest coast of Oahu, and a second 17 miles south of Diamond Head.Progression Hawaii Offshore Wind proposed a single 400 megawatt wind farm that would use between 40 and 50 floating turbines off the southern coast of Oahu.Above the surface of the water, fishermen are concerned that the turbines will scare away the sea birds that alert them to fresh catches, or that the wind farms will hinder their regular fishing patterns.There are many obstacles to implementing such a large-scale renewable energy solution in real life, but the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management is currently holding meetings on the two proposals.
Supercell is a well-known name even in Tencent s home market; its Clash Royale was the only foreign-published title among the 10 top-grossing mobile games in China last month, according to research firm Newzoo.Supercell would push Tencent deeper into the fast-growing mobile segment, which now accounts for only a bit more than a third of its gaming revenue, the rest coming from desktop franchises in China.Supercell and King—maker of Candy Crush Saga —were similar last year in revenue and adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization.And mobile-game sector is vulnerable to one-hit wonders.It recently raised $4 billion in loans from foreign banks, giving it ample firepower to do deals overseas without the worry of needing Chinese regulators permission to shift cash offshore.China s largest gaming company wants to go global, and building an empire doesn t come cheap.
The world s largest operator of helicopters expects energy-related work to decline further and on Thursday said for the first time that it may cancel some orders for new aircraft.Bristow Group Inc. BRS -25.78 % s Chief Executive Jonathan Baliff said continuing uncertainty had forced it to shelve plans to provide full-year profit guidance, as oil and gas companies cut back on exploration and production, reducing demand for helicopter flights.Helicopter operators business is a leading indicator of activity in the energy industry, and Houston-based Bristow is one of two companies serving the global market ferrying workers to and from offshore energy platforms.The other, CHC Group Ltd HELIQ 1.77 % , filed for bankruptcy protection earlier this month.Bristow derives three quarters of its revenue from the energy industry, and its revenue from that sector fell 29% in the fiscal fourth quarter to Mar.Bristow plans to return some helicopters to lessors when leases expire and has been in talks with manufacturers to defer some deliveries, but Mr. Baliff said during a post-earnings call with analysts that cancellations were a possibility.
She believed she d made a series of legitimate loans to the offshore oil business of a Florida businessman she d met at a dating site - when in truth she had been victimized by an organized crime gang in Africa.Her six-figure losses were nearly 30 times higher than the average loss $8,421 reported last year to IC3, but she never received a follow-up call or any notification from law enforcement indicating that they were investigating - or were even interested in - her claim.My client knocked, and waited, but it seemed nobody was home.In terms of broader analyses, there are serious shortcomings in relying on self-reported complaints to describe the full extent of online crime, because many victims don t realize they have been attacked.Consumer-focused crimes like advance-fee frauds, fake lotteries, and social media scams are rampant.By that basis, IC3 data - with 288,000 total complainants - represent less than 0.2 percent of all incidents and victims.
