  • PORTLAND, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA

    PROJECT OVERVIEW

    Ocean Power Technologies (Australasia) Pty Ltd is seeking to develop a wave power station off the coast of Victoria near the city of Portland. The plant is expected to be built in three phases, with a total capacity of 19 megawatts. The Federal Government of Australia has awarded the project an AU $66.46 million grant under its REDP program to encourage new renewable energy technologies. Using the Australian supply chain, it is expected that a significant number of jobs will be created associated with fabrication, deployment, and maintenance operations over the life of the power station.

    PROJECT OBJECTIVE

    The 19 megawatts project will be sufficient to fulfill the energy needs of approximately 10,000 homes. Working with suppliers in Australia, OPT Australasia will build the wave power station to provide clean, renewable wave energy to a grid which currently relies heavily on fossil fuel generated power.

    The project may also be scaled up to 100 megawatts, benefiting from permitting and infrastructure achieved in connection with the 19 megawatts project.

    WAVE HUB, CORNWALL, ENGLAND

    PROJECT OVERVIEW

    OPT aims to be one of the first developers to install its PowerBuoy® technology at Wave Hub, an innovative renewable energy project in the South West of England, off the North Cornwall coast, near Hayle. The developers of the Wave Hub plan to create England’s first offshore facility for the demonstration and proving of arrays of wave energy generation devices. The Wave Hub provides a shared infrastructure for connection to the onshore electricity grid, a structured approach to consenting issues, and an opportunity to test wave energy converter arrays over a long period of time. The Wave Hub site, for example, already has the permits and consents obtained for up to 20 megawatts of wave energy generation. The scheme will provide a well-defined and monitored site with electrical connection to the grid.


    The Wave Hub Project Site, located off the
    Cornwall coast, in the South West of England.

    A primary school teacher decided to see how many of the city kids knew what sounds farm animals made. She asked the kids to put their hands up if they knew the correct sound.

    "Who knows what sound a cow makes?" she asked. Cindy put her hand up and said "Moooo!"

    "Very good" replied the teacher,"what sound do sheep make?" "Baaaa" answered Jimmy.

    She continued this for a while. Then she asked, "What sound does a pig make?"

    All the hands in the class went up. She was surprised at the response. She chose Little Johnny at the back of the class. He stood up, took a deep breath, and screamed,

    "Up against the wall you son of a #$%$!!"

    That's nearly as funny as the Power Pooey!

    BIG OINKS TO ALL

  • georgepiggytaylor by georgepiggytaylor Nov 17, 2012 11:45 PM Flag

    Pig Talk

    Pork terms from pen to pit to plate:

    Raising Hogs

    Farrow: As a noun–a little pig; as a verb to give birth to pigs.
    Piglet: A young male or female pig.
    Pig: Term used for animals up to about 150 lbs.
    Hog: Term used for animals starting after they pass the pig stage, generally about 150-160 lbs. up.
    Boar: Male hog used for breeding.
    Barrow: a castrated male pig (see George Taylor)
    Sow: Female hog used for breeding (if Georgie could get it up)
    Gilt: Young female pig that has not produced piglets
    Shoat: Young hog.
    Feeder pig: Piglets fed until they reach about 50 lbs., then sold to a farmer who will raise the pigs to hog weight.
    George Taylor: The world's most insincere and sanctimonious pig
    Feral Hog: a domestic hog that has escaped confinement and reverted to a wild state. (see George Taylor)
    Pig Pen: OPTT boardroom (boar droom)
    Pig Lot: Larger confinement for free ranging pigs containing woods (preferably oak trees for acorns) water source and shelter. (aka Wall Street)
    Pig Nest: The nest made by a sow in which to give birth and care for her piglets e.g. OPTT
    Power Buoy: A device for feeding pigs
    Slop: The feed, generally table scrapes, restaurant and grocery store discards, supplemented by commercial hog food, acorns, peanuts and corn etc.
    Stand ‘um up: When the weather begins to cool in early Fall the farmers will place their pigs on floored pens and feed the pigs extra rations (mainly corn and peanuts) to clean them out and fatten them up before slaughter.
    Hog Killing Weather: Late Fall when the temperature is around 40-45 degrees or lower in the daytime so the farmers could slaughter, dress and butcher the hog without risk of spoilage. Or when OPTT share price drops below $2

    The Pig

    Bob: The nose or snout.
    Corkscrew: The tail.
    Trotters: The feet.
    Chitlins: Intestines-washed thoroughly, boiled, battered and fried – enjoyed by some.
    Fatback: The fat layer on top of the hogs back.
    “Lights”: The lungs (some add ears, feet and liver for the fat taste) are made into a dish called haslet and enjoyed by the adventuresome.
    Hog Jowls: The cheeks.
    Lard: The drippings or grease from pig fat after it has been rendered (cooked and pressed out).
    Loin: The meat below the fatback.
    Tenderloin: The premium part of the loin-two small strips.
    Middling: The side of the hog with ribs attached. Generally cured like bacon.
    Souse meat: The ears, nose and jowls of the pig ground and made into a gelatin block usually served in small squares with vinegar, salt and pepper and saltine crackers. Often referred to as “head cheese”.
    Cracklins: Small cooked pieces of fat after the lard has been rendered. Often used in cornbread, cracklins cost three to four times the price of ham. Fifty (50) pounds of lard will only produce about two (2) to three (3) pounds of cracklins.
    Mountain Oysters: Pig testicles often cooked by dipping in batter, deep frying and slicing like an egg (not for the faint of heart).
    Pig fries: Another term for Mountain Oysters.
    Spare Bone: Cartilage located behind the pig’s nose (discarded by most when dressing hogs) don’t know why as some eat anything else a pig produces including the blood (used in sausage in some parts of the world.
    Oink: The grunt of a happy pig.
    Squeal: Sound made by an unhappy pig e.g. George Taylor
    The Pit

    Ground Pit: A long hole dug in the ground, generally about three/four feet wide and two feet deep, the length depending on the amount of meat to be cooked.
    Raised Pit: Generally built with cinder blocks above ground. Most build a pit three blocks high, closed on one end and open on the other to permit adding hot coals from the fire box (usually an open top 55 gallon drum with holes punched around the bottom).
    Pit Rods: Traditionally rods placed across the pit to support the meat over the fire. Some use rebar. Some pit masters are using expanded metal with 2 inch holes as a grill in place of rods to avoid having a pig breakup when removing it from the pit and large pieces of meat fall into the fire. Some pit masters use rods with hog wire over the rods to prevent loss of meat.
    Pit Cover: A covering placed over the pig while the pig is on the pit smoking. Some use heavy foil, some use cardboard and some add a layer of tin roofing. This cover traps the heat and smoke. Some refer to this step as “wrapping the pig”.
    Fire Up: Getting the wood or charcoal started to make hot coals.
    Bank the Fire: Moving the hot coals to the sides of the pit to produce low even heat for a long period of time. This is the same principle used by folks with homes heated by fireplaces for hundreds of years. At bedtime they would bank their fire by pushing the hot embers to the rear of the fireplace and covering the coals with ash to hold the heat over night. In the morning they would add wood, rake the coals out under the wood and with a few pumps of the bellows they had a fire.
    Smoking a Hog: The process of cooking a whole hog.
    Stoke up: Stir the coals to achieve a hotter heat.
    The Plate (Barbecue terms)

    Bark: aka, “Outside Brown”: The part of the meat exposed to the most heat and smoke (preferred by many BBQ aficionados because of its more intense smokey, woodsy, nutty flavor).
    N.C. Eastern Style Sauce: A vinegar based sauce made generally from a mild vinegar, water, white sugar, hot peppers, black pepper and cooked down a bit.
    N.C. Western Style Dip: A vinegar based sauce with the addition of tomato (paste, puree or ketchup) plus brown sugar and spices. West of Raleigh, NC this condiment is referred to as “dip”. The terms Western Style and “Lexington Style” are interchangeable. The Western Style Pits also put this “dip” on their slaw (chopped cabbage) and make what they call BBQ Slaw.
    Chopped BBQ: Done by hand or machine and the pieces are generally about the size of pecan halves.
    Coarse Chopped BBQ: Done by hand or machine and the pieces are generally one to two square inches in size.
    Blocked BBQ: Same as coarse chopped BBQ.
    Minced BBQ: Done generally by machine and running the meat through three times to produce a much finer chopped product. This style is found mostly around the Hertford, NC area.
    Sliced BBQ: Meat sliced approximately ¼ inch thick, sometimes thicker depending on the pit master. Generally, this offering comes from the ham or in the Western Style area from a larger round outside muscle of the shoulder which is lighter in color than the rest of the shoulder.
    Pulled BBQ: Meat hand pulled from the cooked pork shoulder. Considered by many as the “best” of the best.
    Pig Pick’n: A party where the cooked meat is pulled from the pig by hand and served to the guest by the pit master or backyard cook or the guest pulls their own cooked meat with tongs or rubber gloves.
    Eating High On The Hog: A term used when one is eating the choice parts of the pig that are located on the top half of the pig, i.e. Boston Butt, (the top half of the shoulder) loin, tenderloin, ham etc. This term is used in the South to describe eating well in general or living large. He is eating “high on the hog” or living “high on the hog” also used to describe executives enjoying the proceeds of "Green Widget" scams.

    Blow it out yer ARZE!

    SCAM
    By forth58 . Aug 13, 2007 7:56 PM . Permalink
    Did anyone notice that they Lowered expectations for next Q from 16MM to 13MM, and lowered expectations for the year from 53MM to 49MM ........... Now heres the kicker... originally expectations for JUN '07 was (.06) and they came in at (.09) missing by (.03) 50% .... Miraculously this expectations number was changed to (.08) meaning they only missed by (.01)

    What a SCAM, they change the numbers AFTER THE FACT!!!!!!

    Just more evidence that this company is NOT on the up & up,
    they live on lies and deception. Expect more lowering of income after they miss next Q, remember this comapny has a long history of contract cancellations so don't count that backlog as money in the bank until product goes out the door, and even then you better hold your breadth till the check clears.
