first_imgMajor Component Provider Sees U.S. Solar Growth Continuing in the Face of Trump Tariff FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:SMA Solar (S92G.DE), Germany’s largest solar group, expects the industry to take a just a small hit from import tariffs imposed by U.S. President Donald Trump this week, sending its shares to an 11-week high.Trump on Monday approved a 30 percent tariff on solar cell and module imports, dropping to 15 percent within four years. Up to 2.5 gigawatts of unassembled solar cells can be imported tariff-free in each year.Although the move was intended to help American manufacturers, some in the sector said it could slow U.S. investment in solar power and cost thousands of U.S. jobs.However, SMA Solar, the world’s largest maker of solar inverters, said it expected the impact to be small, forecasting industry growth in the Americas region would average about 18 percent per year until 2020, more than the 10 percent expected globally.“SMA’s market outlook includes a slightly negative impact from the import tariff,” SMA said on slides published during its capital market day, giving no further details on the impact.Shares in SMA Solar, which generated 46 percent of its sales in the Americas in 2016, were up 4 percent by 1000 GMT, having touched their highest level since Nov. 8. They had slipped after news of the tariff plan this week.The company also this week reported preliminary 2017 results and predicted growing sales this year.More: SMA Solar sees U.S. duties making only small dent in marketlast_img read more

Best Fantasy Baseball Team Names 2019

first_imgDOMINATE YOUR DRAFT: Ultimate 2019 cheat sheetYou can go political (“Greene New Deal”) or entertainment-related (“Assistant to the Regional Haniger”); baseball-related (“Advanced Gleybermetrics”) or crude (“Dee’s Nuts!”); clever (“Only the Good DeJong”) or something that really makes a powerful social justice statement (“Can’t We All Just Get a Wong?”). Ultimately, the best team names are going to be references to inside jokes among your leaguemates or something so crude we can’t publish it here, so we’re offering mostly PG-rated puns off player names. You have your own pool of references from which to draw, so make it count. Winning the team name battle is arguably more important than winning the league, and unlike in drafts where only one team has a shot at Mike Trout, anyone can walk away from this round of battle knowing they’ve made the best choice.2019 Fantasy Baseball Rankings:Catcher | First | Second | Third | Short | Outfield | Starter | Reliever | Top 300Best Fantasy Baseball Team Names 2019Won’t You Be My Gleyber?It’s a Beautiful Day in the GleyberhoodWelcome to the GleyberhoodAdvanced GleybermetricsBlowup DahlsDahl or NothingDee’s Nuts!

Sure, you can have a thorough cheat sheet, pore over rankings and sleeper lists, do practice mock drafts, read endless auction tips/draft strategy advice, and even memorize all of our 50 top prospects, but one elbow tweak here or hamstring pull there and you’re donezo. You can only control so much. But one thing you can control — one thing you can dominate — is your fantasy baseball team name. You can have a good one, a funny one, a clever one — you can have one. And we’re here to help.And by “help”, of course, we mean give you a hundred-plus bad team names so you know what not to pick for yours. OK, maybe there are a few good ones below, but not all are winners. We know that. We’re just trying to get your creativity flowing so you can come up with something better. We believe in you. You can beat “Boot Scooter Boogie”. You might not be able to top “Here’s My Number, Colome Maybe” or “Cron Thugs-N-Harmony”, but you can definitely do better than “I Did It All for the Mookie”. (Note, not all are references to music from 20-plus years ago…just 90 percent.).  The Big Kang TheoryDeShields UpRoundhouse Kikuchilast_img read more
