The power station will now start to deliver electricity to a pool of 26 power distribution companies across the country until December 2044.Under the terms of the PPAs, the project has guaranteed annual capacity payments of approximately 1.6 billion Brazilian Real ($311.1 million), adjusted annually for local inflation, together with pass-through of fuel and operating costs according to dispatch.
Cristiano Ronaldo has made winning a habit throughout his illustrious career, whether collective or individual.The Portuguese superstar’s goalscoring feat cannot be overlooked.The former Real Madrid forward picked up 3 La Liga top scorer awards during his time in Spain, including 4 European Golden shoe awards throughout his career.However, one goal scoring award seems elusive, the Serie A Golden boot.Since joining Juventus in 2018, Ronaldo has failed to pick up the award in two attempts.The just ended season saw Ronaldo register 31 goals in 32 league games – his most in a single season in the past four years.2016/2017 – 25 goals in 29 appearances 2017/2018 – 26 goals in 27 appearances 2018/2019 – 21 goals in 31 appearances 2019/2020 – 31 goals in 32 appearancesBut he still fell short, losing the title to Lazio’s goal scoring machine Ciro Immobile, who bagged 36, equalling the all time Serie A record.The 35 year old’s quest to become the first player to win the golden boot award in 3 of Europe’s top 5 leagues, after previous triumphs in England and Spain, hence continues.
Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Sharon’s answer, while rehearsed, was revealing.“The Anheuser-Busch campaign has done a number of things for Jackie Robinson and for the Jackie Robinson Foundation,” Robinson said. “Because of that campaign we got increased visibility but more importantly we’re going to be able to open the Jackie Robinson Museum this year.”The advertisement was directed by Spike Lee. Better known for his films (“Malcolm X”, “Do The Right Thing”, “BlacKkKlansman”), Lee’s ad agency Spike DDB has produced spots for AARP, JBL, Cadillac, Chevrolet, and Bernie Sanders. According to Ricardo Marques, the Group VP of Marketing, Core & Value Brands at Anheuser-Busch, the full production was a multi-month process culminating with three days of filming in Brooklyn.The ad covers a lot of ground in three minutes. It begins with a group of African-American men and women gathered around a radio, listening to Robinson’s first game with the Dodgers in 1947 (and drinking beer, of course). Black-and-white footage of Robinson – playing baseball, kissing Rachel, signing autographs – is interspersed throughout.The commercial ends with a montage of some very random people – an LGBT activist, a fencer, a firefighter, a women’s rights advocate – united with Robinson under the thematic umbrella of diversity. Tying it all together is a script read by Sharon Robinson.“When we first met with Spike’s team, they had a PowerPoint,” she said. “Somebody from the group read that script. We were like, ‘wow.’ This idea of impact: we were always talking about impact and how do you have impact? I thought it was a tremendous way to celebrate the centennial.”After that initial meeting at the Jackie Robinson Foundation headquarters in New York, Robinson took her notes back to her mom, “and relayed what the campaign is.”“We thought about it as a family,” Sharon Robinson said, “and decided to move forward with it because it would have impact on our museum.”Budweiser’s partnership with Jackie Robinson only begins with the ad.Related Articles How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Ian Fraser Kilmister, the heavy metal icon better known as Lemmy, was recently the star of a milk commercial in Finland. Fred Astaire once pitched for Dirt Devil by dancing with a vacuum. Humphrey Bogart, James Cagney and Louis Armstrong teamed up to sell Diet Coke. For each of them, death was no obstacle to starring in a commercial.So, what’s the problem with Jackie Robinson scoring a run in a Budweiser ad?That’s been a burning question for a couple weeks since a Spike Lee-directed commercial, starring Robinson, landed on the internet.The answer is, well, nothing, if you ask his family. Angels fail to take series in Oakland, lose in 10 innings A billboard featuring Jackie Robinson now sits in Manhattan. Specially marked bottles featuring Robinson’s signature alongside the Budweiser logo are available at major league stadiums and bars until the end of the MLB season. Anheuser-Busch will donate 42 cents from the sale of each bottle to the Jackie Robinson Foundation. To bridge the museum’s funding gap of $14 million, Budweiser will need to sell 33,333,334 of these bottles.There’s a meme for everything, and “there is no such thing as ethical consumption under capitalism” comes to mind. But then, we’ve been here before. The Robinson spot is far more tasteful than the sight of Ginger Rogers being replaced with a vacuum. If John Lennon can sell Nikes – “Join the human race,” get it? – then surely the family of Jackie Robinson can let their patriarch sell a couple of beers.According to the Society for American Baseball Research, advertisements for Bond bread featuring Robinson ran in the black press during his lifetime. Robinson also endorsed Old Gold cigarettes in mainstream print media, and he didn’t even smoke. “It might be said that Robinson’s national product endorsements, whose number grew throughout his career, may have led to changes in the way in which African-Americans were perceived by the majority of American consumers,” wrote Roberta J. Newman, a liberal studies professor at New York University.Robinson’s latest endorsement deal has an opportunity to extend his legacy in more ways than one. I had the chance to catch up with Sharon Robinson, Jackie’s daughter, on Monday at Dodger Stadium, Major League Baseball’s annual “Jackie Robinson Day.” Her perspective is important. Rachel Robinson created the Jackie Robinson Foundation in 1973, the year her after her husband’s death. Sharon is now the vice-chair of the foundation, which is benefiting directly from the Budweiser campaign.The foundation aims to open a physical Jackie Robinson Museum in lower Manhattan later this year. It’s a massive undertaking. Among the “Founding Donors” listed on the museum’s official website: the Dodgers’ owners, the Mets, the Yankees and Major League Baseball itself. According to the site, the Foundation has already raised $28 million toward a goal of $42 million, which includes the museum’s operating endowment.This year marks the 100th anniversary of Robinson’s birth. That helps answer the “when” of Jackie Robinson selling beer.But why beer?Hey, why not?
