Facebook3Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Adopt-A-Pet of SheltonHi! I’m Beau and I am about 8 years old and weigh 68 pounds. My time before was spent at the end of a chain. Here I have a nice roomy kennel with indoor and outdoor space. I get to run in the huge play yards without even a leash. They even take me for walks on the trails and I walk very politely without pulling too much. I really want to have a new home where I am the only dog.I impressed the people here at the kennel by responding when they asked me to do a sit and a down. I guess they can see that I really am a smart, sweet dog. I hope I am the dog you have been waiting for. I know I have a lot to learn but I’m ready to work with you if you have time and love enough to teach me how to be an even better friend and companion.We have many great dogs and always need volunteers.

Three reasons the 49ers should beat the Saints by double-digitsYou can’t say that the 49ers haven’t made it interesting down the stretch.Despite being the NFL’s last undefeated team — 8-0 not too long ago — and despite being tied for the NFL’s best record heading into Week 14, almost everything is on the line for San Francisco when they play the Saints in New Orleans on Sunday.The Niners (10-2) — who are somehow, someway, set to play in the NFC Playoff Wild Card Round as the No. 5 seed — can …
Tesla’s Powerwall battery will be installed in 500 Vermont homes next year, making Green Mountain Power the first utility in the country to offer a home battery option, SmartGrid News reports.The 7 kilowatt-hour battery, the smaller of two Powerwall options introduced by Tesla earlier this year, will provide four to six hours of backup power.Green Mountain plans to begin with ten customers in the Rutland area before offering it to customers in the rest of its service area. The price of the PowerWall battery and the SolarEdge inverter has been set at $6,500 (not including the cost of installation). Green Mountain is offering customers three payment options, including a lease that requires no upfront cost. In a statement, Green Mountain said the battery would allow utility customers to become more energy independent while allowing the utility to reduce peak demand on the grid.GMP President and CEO Mary Powell called the program a “game changer” that would move Vermont away from a century-old grid system to a more reliable and economical alternative. Three ways to payA Powerwall can be installed on homes with and without photovoltaic (PV) systems. Green Mountain is giving customers several ways of paying for the system: RELATED ARTICLES Tesla Will Sell Home BatteriesVermont Utility to Develop New Grid TechnologyThis Vermont Park Is Going Off-Grid Lease. Customers pay nothing up front for the battery, but pay a monthly fee of $37.50, roughly $1.25 a day.Buy outright. Customers would pay the full $6,500 cost.Buy but share. Customers who pay the $6,500 purchase cost and share access to the battery would get a monthly credit on their bills of $31.76. That, the utility said, “represents the value of leveraging the battery to help lower peak energy costs.”The utility said the first batch of batteries would be arriving in January, with the balance to follow over the next several months. More than 500 customers had signed up for the program by Dec. 17, the utility said.The batteries can be installed indoors or outdoors, although they’re not designed to operate in temperatures below -4°F. The 220-pound batteries come with a 10-year warranty.Green Mountain has about 265,000 residential and business customers in Vermont. It previously announced plans to run the Emerald Lake State Park entirely on solar electricity with a system combining PV panels and Powerwall batteries. Tesla has announced plans to sell the Powerwall to residential customers in Australia.

Mislintat: Arsenal striker Aubameyang too selfless to play for elite clubby Paul Vegas12 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveStuttgart chief Sven Mislintat says Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is too selfless to play for an elite club.Aubameyang has been linked with Real Madrid and Barcelona throughout his career.But former Gunners scout Mislintat, who signed the striker from Borussia Dortmund, was quoted by The Athletic saying: “He is one, maybe the only one, this exceptional top striker, who is an absolute team player.”Perhaps this attitude cost him the opportunity to play for clubs like Real Madrid or Barcelona.”A striker like Neymar or (Sergio) Aguero, for example, would never give up a penalty. I like his attitude. He is good for the team atmosphere.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
TORONTO – Rogers Communications Inc. saw its first-quarter profit soar from the same time last year as its wireless division experienced a growth spurt that exceeded analyst estimates.The wireless, cable, internet and media company’s net profit was $425 million, up 37 per cent from $310 million in the comparable period last year.Adjusted earnings grew even more, rising by 45 per cent to $477 million, while total revenue was $3.63 billion, up eight per cent from $3.37 billion last year.The net profit reported by Rogers, under a new accounting standard that it adopted for this year, amounted to 83 cents per share, up from 60 cents per share.Growth in consolidated EBITDA, earnings before taxes and other items, was 11.1 per cent — above the consensus estimate of 5.9 per cent.More than half of total revenue for Rogers was from the wireless division, which was up nine per cent to $2.19 billion.Rogers chief executive Joe Natale told analysts in a conference call after the results were released Thursday afternoon that the overall wireless marketplace, including the company’s rivals, appears to have had healthy growth during the quarter.In addition, he said, Rogers made progress in reducing the loss of customers — or churn — by proactively looking for ways to retain customers and investing in improvements at its call centres.“If you look at what we’ve been focused on, we’ve been focusing on doing a better job of managing our base of customers and really kind of looking through our base and looking at retention — proactive retention opportunities,” Natale said.He said the investments in systems “will continue to pay dividends for us.”Among the wireless performance metrics that contributed to the quarter was 95,000 net postpaid additions — compared with 60,000 a year earlier — and reduced postpaid churn of 1.08 per cent, down from 1.1 per cent a year earlier.The consensus estimate had been for about 55,000 net postpaid additions and churn of 1.13 per cent.The first quarter’s wireless results were a stark contrast to the fourth quarter, when 72,000 net subscriber additions were below estimates.Natale said estimated on a Jan. 25 analyst call that technical problems in December, during a seasonally important period, had cost Rogers about 35,000 net additions to its subscriber base in the fourth quarter.Rogers has one of Canada’s three national wireless networks, operating under the Rogers, Fido and Chatr brands.It also owns the Toronto Blue Jays baseball team through its media division and one of Canada’s largest cable TV networks, based mostly in Ontario and Atlantic Canada.Natale said revenue growth at the Rogers media division — which was up 12 per cent from a year ago to $532 million — was primarily due to sports.Companies in this story: (TSX:RCI.B)
