Actress Skai Jackson and rapper Bhad Bhabie are feuding.Oof James Charles can't stay away from the drama...even on Tik Tok - https://youtu.be/k13H6yWm67gIt all began with a fake Insta account where Skai allegedly made a comment on her second finsta asking for someone to hook her up with rapper NBA YoungBoy, someone who Bhad Bhabie had previously dated. Bhad Bhabie took the fight to her Instagram live where she continued to rant telling Skai to keep her name out of her mouth and admitting that Skai blocked her on Instagram. The Instagram live goes on for some time and covers a range of other topics surrounding Skai. Skai responded in her own way on Twitter by listing all of the things she’s working on, all of the things she’s accomplished and ending the rather impressive list with “No time 4 negatives!” And then their moms got involved. But now the feud has ended. Legally. Because yesterday Skai filed a restraining order against Danielle. Your one stop shop for all things entertainment and celebrity!

#11 Coal power plants shutter rapidly in U.S.

Coal power plants shutter rapidly in U.S.

U.S. coal-fired power plants shut down at the second-fastest pace on record since 2009. Subscribe: http://smarturl.it/reuterssubscribe Reuters brings you the...

A comparison of the nation's power mix in 2007 and 2019 clearly shows a transition to less expensive, lower-carbon energy sources. The numbers are even more impressive considering total electricity consumption has changed by less than 1% in that span, which makes each power source's changing share a direct reflection of changing electrical output.

Power Source Share of Total U.S. Electricity Consumption, 2019 Share of Total U.S. Electricity Consumption, 2007
Coal 23.5% 48.5%
Natural gas 38.4% 21.6%
Nuclear 19.7% 19.4%
Hydro 6.6% 6%
Onshore wind 7.3% 0.8%
Utility-scale solar 1.8% 0%

DATA SOURCE: EIA.

The transition away from coal is expected to continue. Here are a few other highlights from the latest numbers compiled by the EIA:

  • Just two years ago, the EIA estimated coal-fired power plants would supply 22% of the nation's electricity in 2050. That now appears to be a gross overestimate (although it appeared that way at the time, too).
  • Due to closures and low utilization, it seems likely that July 2019 will be the last month ever that the U.S. generated more than 100 terawatt-hours of electricity from coal.
  • The U.S. leaned on renewable energy sources for 17.5% of its total electricity consumption in 2019. Zero-carbon electricity sources had a 37.1% share of the power mix last year.
  • Nuclear power plants generated an estimated 809 terawatt-hours of electricity in 2019, which was an all-time high. The nation's fleet accomplished the feat through improvements called uprates, which add capacity to existing assets. The trend is not expected to continue in face of reactor closures in the next several years, although nuclear power outproduced coal for the first time ever in April 2019. It did it again in December 2019.
  • An estimated 10,000 megawatts of onshore wind power came on line in 2019, including 3,800 megawatts in the fourth quarter. Those assets will contribute their first full year of production in 2020, which will significantly increase the share of electricity generated from wind power this year.
  • A record amount of wind capacity is expected to come on line in 2020, meaning wind power's share of the generation mix will increase further in 2021. The EIA had previously expected 14,300 megawatts to come on line in 2020, but a large share of projects expected to be completed last year were pushed into this year after a federal subsidy was extended. That could make 2020 a fantastic year for capacity additions.
  • Utility-scale solar assets generated an estimated 72 terawatt-hours of electricity in 2019, but small-scale solar installations (rooftop and commercial assets) generated an additional 35 terawatt-hours. The EIA currently excludes small-scale generation from power mix calculations. When included, solar accounted for 2.6% of all electricity consumption in the U.S. in 2019.

If anyone is interested I am Top40 online. In the real world my name is David Russell Ellenberger. I am a SWM 57 and live in Louisville, Ky. I started Internettop40.com about 4 years ago. I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted the website to be about but I liked the idea of people voting on items in ranked lists. The voting on these ranked lists will move the items up or down in the rankings you vote by clicking the + or - buttons below or next to the item in a list, refresh the page and the item will then appear in it's new ranking. IMHO voting really is one of the most important things you can do. Your vote is literally worth millions of dollars and that's one thing the politicians want you to do but don't want you to think about in that way. In other words vote for me I'm the best and I'm for this I'm for that I am for all the things that you want and that's why should vote for me. In reality what its about is control over you and money. So next time you vote you should demand to get paid. But I digress that's voting on items is just one of the reasons I started Internttop40.com. I also wanted to get my point out to the people and hopefully other people will want to use my website to get their point out or at least create their own lists. I had hoped for this to be another social media website. That hasn't really happened and I have been online for almost 5 years now. More about that later.

 

Everyone thinks just put your website up and they will come but that's not really the case. Part of the problem is search engines like Google have almost complete control of the web and all the traffic on it and they want you to pay. They also don't like other social media sites or search engine type sites they are what's known in the business as viral sites or sites that mostly contain links and not much original content which is exactly what Google is. But I maintain that links are part of the branding and the way you show your links to the world is an original aspect of any website and part of the branding and is orginal content in and of itself. But Google doesn't think so, Because that's what they are and they of course want complete control and they have it and no one seems to care. I didn't care until I started this website. But again I digress.

 

Back to the point. Why I started this website. Well another reason was to make money you can sell things or you can put advertising on your website. You can go out and sell advertising yourself or simply sign up for advertising services that have already sold the advertising and put the ads on your website for you. Services like this from Google and it's advertising service called adsense. If you read up on the internet how to make money with a website You will eventually find Adsense and various websites will tell you you can make tens of thousands with website adverting its so easy. And that may be true just from a numbers point of view but then reality sets in. More coming in a few days. Thanks for reading....
