History[edit]
World War II[edit]
German forces held Poltava from 1941 until September, 1943. The Luftwaffe maintained a regional headquarters at the airfield, and Adolf Hitler visited on one occasion. When the field was evacuated, the Germans placed 12 500-lb bombs connected to a distant, concealed HF-antenna under the main building. Nearby structures had been largely destroyed. The bomb was discovered when the base was put in use by the Soviet-American forces in spring 1944.[1]

American and Soviet military personnel at Poltava Air Base during Operation Frantic

In February 1944, the field was provided to the United States Army Air Forces as a heavy bomber staging field, used by the Eighth and Fifteenth Air Forces for shuttle bombing missions (Operation Frantic). After an intense construction season with increasing American presence, the field was declared ready for U.S. bomber use at the end of May 1944. A high-level USAAF team led by General Frederick Anderson (accompanied by Colonel Elliott Roosevelt and others) inspected the base that month. The runways were Marsden steel matting imported from the United States, and the fuel depot was filled with high-octane aviation gasoline from the U.S. A Soviet fighter regiment and several support aircraft were stationed at the field.[1]
Poltava was designated as USAAF Station 559 and became headquarters, Eastern Command, headed by General Alfred Kessler. Two smaller nearby U.S. fields, also along the Kiev r

Independent Power Producer

An independent power producer (IPP) or non-utility generator (NUG) is an entity,[1] which is not a public utility, but which owns facilities to generate electric power for sale to utilities and end users.[2] NUGs may be privately held facilities, corporations, cooperatives such as rural solar or wind energy producers, and non-energy industrial concerns capable of feeding excess energy into the system.[3]

Economic situation[edit]
For the majority of IPPs, particularly in the renewable energy industry, a feed-in Tariff or Power Purchase Agreement provides a long term price guarantee.
Canada[edit]
In 2002, the BC government stipulated that new clean renewable energy generation in the province[4] would be developed by “independent power producers” (IPPs) not BC Hydro, save for large hydro-electric facilities. The role of the private sector in developing BC’s “public” resources is one of the more controversial issues that British Columbians are currently grappling with.
Taiwan[edit]
The liberalization of Taiwan electricity market was done in January 1995. Currently there are nine IPP companies operating in Taiwan.[5]
United States[edit]
Prior to the US Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act (PURPA) of 1978, NUGs were rare, and the few that existed were seldom able to distribute power, as the cost of building the conveyance infrastructure was prohibitive. Public utilities generated power and owned the generating facilities, the transmission lines, and the local delivery systems. Congress Passed the PURPA in 1978, establishing a class of non‐utility generators, called Qualifying Facilities (QF), which were permitted to produce power for resale.
PURPA was intended to reduce domestic dependence on foreign energy, to encourage energy conservation, and to reduce the ability of electric utilities to abuse the purchase of power from QFs. A QF is defined as a generating facility that produces electricity and another form of useful thermal energy through the sequential use of energy, and meets certain ownership, operating, and efficiency criteria established by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
Section 210 of PURPA now requires utilities to purchase energy from NUGs which qualify (qualifying facilities) at the utility’s avoided cost. This allows NUGs to receive a reasonable to excellent price for the energy they produce and ensures that energy generate

Distribution[edit]
The ant is found in wet areas in New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania. Specimens were found in alpine areas, alpine heath, grassland and in Sclerophyll, either wet or dry, at elevations of 2,000 metres.[2] These ants can establish nests under large stones, rotting wood, under dead piles of leaves and twigs, and workers have been found foraging in litter and alpine vegetation.[1] A large number of specimens have been collected to the Australian National Insect Collection.[3] A study this species is important for ants living in the eastern seaboard.[1]
Etymology[edit]
In Latin, alpinus is translated to alpine, which refers to its habitat the ant lives in.[1]

The length of the forewings is 13–13.5 mm. The forewings are brown, but yellow along the apex and termen and the costal margin with a yellowish spot beyond the middle and at the distal one-fifth. There is a single dark dot at the middle, at the end of the cell and near the end of the fold. The hindwings are grey.

The species name refers to the shape of the uncus in the male genitalia and is derived from Latin fustiformis (meaning sticklike).[2]

Nanne Zwiep

The Reverend Nanne Zwiep (3 August 1894 in Beemster, North Holland – 24 November 1942 in Dachau) was a pastor of the Dutch Reformed Church in the town of Enschede. He was arrested by the Nazis during the German occupation of the Netherlands and died in the concentration camp at Dachau near Munich.
Zwiep became a pastor in Enschede in 1929 and was a well-known figure in the town. On Sunday 19 April 1942, he spoke out in a sermon against National Socialism and the persecution of the Jews. The following day he was arrested by the Germans and after five months of interrogation in prison in Arnhem and Amersfoort he was transported to Dachau. On 24 November 1942, two months after his arrival at the camp, he died of exhaustion and malnutrition.
The biggest Scout group in Enschede is named in Zwiep’s memory.
