Micron, SanDisk rally on new Hynix fire reports, surging memory prices

Countering comments made by SK Hynix (HXSCL.OB) yesterday, Wedge Partners says the fire that broke out at Hynix's Chinese memory fab will cause at least a 2-month production delay, and that Hynix has suspended price negotiations with clients. The remarks come as DRAM spot prices jump 20% on account of the fire, and reports emerge several top memory manufacturers have joined Hynix in putting shipments on hold. There could be major downstream ramifications: TrendForce thinks 11M notebook shipments and 10M smartphone shipments will be affected within a month if "main production procedures are halted." The firm estimates it will take 6 months for all of the damage to be fixed. Prior to the fire, DRAM and NAND prices had been slumping this summer after rallying earlier this year. Micron (MU +3%) and SanDisk (SNDK +1.9%) are adding to yesterday's gains. DRAM/NAND giant Samsung (SSNLF.PK, SSNGY.OB) rose 1.9% overnight in Seoul, while Hynix fell 1.8%. 1 comment!

U.S. Poised To Hand Over Millions To Another Solar Panel Start-Up

LOS ANGELES, Sept 24 (Reuters) - A tiny solar company named SoloPower will flip the switch on production at a U.S. factory Thursday, a major step toward allowing it to tap a $197 million government loan guarantee awarded under the same controversial program that supported failed panel maker Solyndra. SoloPower has initiated a strategy to differentiate it from struggling commodity players in the solar panel industry. Still, there are several similarities between SoloPower and Solyndra - which became a lightning rod in the U.S. Presidential campaign this year after taking in more than $500 million in government loans and then filing for bankruptcy. Like Solyndra, SoloPower is a Silicon Valley start-up and uses the same non-traditional raw material in its solar panels. And, like its now-defunct peer, SoloPower is one of just four U.S. panel manufacturers to clinch loan guarantees under the Department of Energy's $35 billion program to support emerging clean energy technologies. The DOE payments to SoloPower will come on top of the $56.5 million SoloPower has collected in loans, tax credits and incentives from the state of Oregon and the city of Portland, where its first factory will be located. And, perhaps most importantly, SoloPower is entering the market at a time of cutthroat competition from cheaper solar products made in China. Though global demand for photovoltaic solar installations is expected to grow about 8 percent this year, rapid expansion of panel manufacturing in Asia in recent years - combined with a pullback in government incentives in key European markets - has left a glut of solar panels in the market, sending prices down 30 percent this year alone. Companies that make those panels are now struggling to survive. Even the world's largest solar panel maker, China's Suntech Power Holdings Inc, warned on Friday that it may be delisted by the New York Stock Exchange because its share price, which reached $90 in 2008, is now less than $1. Debt-heavy Suntech has also been hurt since it said in July that its partner in a solar development fund might have defrauded it with a bogus collateral pledge of hundreds of millions of German bonds. POLITICAL PRESSURE These struggles have heaped political pressure on the sector. Republicans, intent on taking back the White House in November's election, are using Solyndra and other U.S. Department of Energy loan failures to brand the Obama administration's green incentives a waste of public money and fountain of cronyism. Solyndra, for instance, was backed by George Kaiser, a major fundraiser for Obama. As the failures accumulate, Obama is under pressure to show better results for the program. Earlier this month, the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives passed a "No More Solyndras" bill that would phase out the program for energy loans. It is highly unlikely to be taken up by the U.S. Senate or signed by Obama. SoloPower says the comparisons to Solyndra are unwarranted. The San Jose, California company's lightweight, flexible solar panels have a unique advantage, Chief Executive Tim Harris said in an interview. They are pointed squarely at commercial and industrial rooftops that can't support traditional panels, according to Harris, who said half of the buildings in the world can't bear the weight of heavy, rigid panels made with silicon. This includes many of the buildings that house warehouses and big box retailers, Harris said. In addition, he said SoloPower panels are commanding a price premium in a market that has become increasingly commoditized. "We have way more demand than we have capacity at a very substantial premium price," Harris said in an interview. He declined to specify the premium SoloPower is able to charge, but said his company's product is best suited for markets such as Japan, Italy and Korea, which have high electricity prices and favorable incentives for rooftop systems. The company has been able to raise more than $200 million in venture funding from investors including Crosslink Capital, Hudson Clean Energy Partners, Convexa Capital Ventures and Firsthand Capital Management. "Before one dollar of the DOE loan is relied upon it will be demonstrable that this is a company that absolutely can manufacture a product that there will be verifiable demand for," said John Cavalier, a managing partner with Hudson Clean Energy Partners, which invested in SoloPower. "I don't think anyone will question the wisdom of making a loan of this nature to this company." But some in the industry are skeptical of SoloPower's ability to succeed without having to lower its prices to compete with cheaper products from Asia. "They are flexible and lightweight. Is anyone willing to pay a price premium for that? I would lean toward saying no," said Matt Feinstein, a solar industry analyst with Lux Research, a research and advisory firm that specializes in emerging technologies. "They have to compete head-to-head with the Chinese." LIGHTER, BUT LESS EFFICIENT SoloPower must have its first production line up and running and meet other undisclosed milestones before it can begin to draw down funds from its U.S. Department of Energy loan guarantee. Harris expects that to happen later this year or early next year. Funds from the loan guarantee will pay for construction of the rest of the Portland, Oregon factory, which is expected to be completed in 2014. DOE spokesman Damien LaVera would not provide details on the terms of SoloPower's loan guarantee and said the company's technology was not similar to Solyndra's, but would not elaborate. Once completed, the plant will produce 400 megawatts of solar panels annually and employ about 400 people. There are 60 people working there currently. SoloPower will be profitable once the first line is up and running producing panels, Harris said. Many solar companies, meanwhile, have been losing money as they scramble to cut costs as quickly as the prices on their products are falling. Solyndra, for its part, drew down 99 percent of its $535 million loan guarantee without turning a profit. Some project developers, bankers and others are wary of newer "thin film" solar technologies like SoloPower's that are less efficient than traditional panels at transforming the sun's light into electricity. Thin film, a broad term for solar panels that don't use silicon as their raw material, became a darling of investors five years ago when solar-grade silicon prices soared to $500 a kilogram. Thin film makers argued that despite their shortcomings in efficiency, they could deliver far cheaper solar power than their silicon-reliant rivals. Today, however, an influx of capacity from Asia has driven spot prices for polysilicon to about $20 per kg, raising questions about the need to fund alternatives to silicon-based panels. "SoloPower is going to have to deal with the industry perception right now that thin film is a dying technology," said GTM Research solar analyst MJ Shiao. "A start-up thin film manufacturer makes a lot of developers uneasy." But SoloPower's Harris disputed that view, saying his company already has more orders than it can fill. "There is a pipeline of projects that are about ready to go that are just waiting for this lightweight module. If you want to put solar on, we're the only choice," he said. "It would be impossible to start a factory today unless you had a unique product." CHEAP COMPETITION Like Solyndra, SoloPower's panels use copper indium gallium selenide, or CIGS, as their raw material. CIGS panels have long held the promise of being cheaper than polysilicon-based panels while delivering efficiencies that are higher than other thin film technologies such as cadmium telluride, the raw material used by U.S. solar heavyweight First Solar Inc. The drastic drop in the price of traditional panels over the last few years, however, has kept CIGS manufacturers from delivering on that promise on a commercial scale. In the last year, CIGS solar companies HelioVolt and Ascent Solar Technologies Inc have sold stakes to South Korean conglomerate SK Group and TFG Radiant Group, respectively. Another, Miasole, has cut staff and said publicly that it is searching for a partner. Rival Nanosolar earlier this month said its chief executive left after just eight months. Though Solyndra is the best known solar failure of the last year, it was far from the only one. GTM Research estimates that the United States produced 281 megawatts of PV modules in the first half of 2012, compared with 561 MW in the first half of 2011. That's a big reason why a string of manufacturers in both the United States and Europe have closed their doors in the face of competition from increasingly cheap Chinese panels. First Solar, for example, postponed indefinitely its plans for a second U.S. factory in Arizona because of the weak market conditions. Start-ups are being hit too. Of the four companies that received loan guarantees for photovoltaic solar manufacturing, two - Solyndra and Abound Solar - have filed for bankruptcy. SoloPower and Lexington, Massachusetts-based 1366 Technologies Inc, which received a $150 million loan guarantee, remain. 1366 also has yet to draw down funds from its loan guarantee. Even the Chinese manufacturers, whose products are the cheapest in the world, are losing money and struggling with ballooning inventories. One of the biggest Chinese solar companies, LDK Solar Co Ltd, said earlier this month that it was looking to raise cash and may sell a strategic stake. For its part, SoloPower has hired Macquarie Capital to help it explore partnership opportunities. Such a deal could include giving distribution rights to a European or Asian partner in return for a stake in the company. SoloPower is not up for sale, however, Harris said. In fact, the company could even pursue an initial public offering next year, Cavalier of Hudson Clean Energy Partners said. "If the capital markets come back next year, I think we will be able to articulate the value that we offer to potential IPO investors," he said.

Петра в Риме.На платке на просвет видно изображение лица Иисуса.Так же, как и на плащанице-изображение было нанесено не краской и не какими-либо известными органическими материалами.Ученые исследуют эти изображения до сих пор, но тайна пока не разгадана.Причем, Ватикан отказывается признать подлинность хранящейся в отдаленном монастыре итальянской деревни Манопелло иконы "Вуаль Вероники".Дело в том, что в распоряжении Святого Престола находится собственная реликвия, претендующая на то, чтобы называться вуалью святой Вероники.Если вуаль в Манопелло подлинная, это означает, что другая вуаль Вероники, которая хранится в соборе Святого Петра в Ватикане, но которую видели всего несколько человек.Плат Вероники изображается на многих картинах и скульптурах:Петр и Павел с платом.Family Group Adoring the Veil of Veronica, c. 1490, Austrian, oil on panelРимская католическая церковь причислила Веронику к лику святых, хотя нет достоверных сведений о том, что история с вуалью действительно имела место. По крайней мере в Новом Завете об описанном событии нет упоминания.Если верить Ватикану, Вероника долго хранила вуаль. Говорят, она вылечила с ее помощью римского императора Тиберия, а затем передала ее Папе Климентию на хранение.И с тех пор вуаль хранится в соборе Святого Петра в Риме.========================The veil of St. Veronica (Vera Icon).Polski: Chusta św.

Петра, с просьбой увидеть сокрытую в колонне реликвию.Отказы кардинал обьяснял тем, что "с течением лет изображение слишком поблекло".Наконец, настойчивость журналиста победила и для него сделали исключение - позволили войти в хранилище Ватикана, расположенного в Столпе Вероники.Он пережил глубокое разочарование. Льняное полотно не только не произвело на него никакого впечатления, но на нем с трудом можно увидеть что-либо-изображение больше похоже на темное пятно.Бадде подозревает, что в начале семнадцатого века, когда еще строилась новая Базилика Святого Петра, Вуаль была украдена, а на её место подложена неудачная копия.------------Вуаль Вероники-------Здесь платок изображен в виде вуали, как та, что хранится в Монапелло:Robert Campin (1375/1379–1444) St VeronicaDate 1410--------Спор о вуали из Монапелло-------======================================«Официальное признание после стольких веков молчания имело бы огромное теологическое и иконографическое значение», – заявил представителям итальянской прессы еще один сторонник подлинности монастырской иконы, немецкий священник-иезуит, преподаватель искусства Грегорианского университета в Риме Франк Генрих Фейфер.Изучив вуаль, он пришел к выводу, что она обладает необычными, можно сказать, сверхъестественными свойствами. Вуаль представляет собой небольшой кусок ткани размером 6,7 на 9,4 дюйма (примерно 17 на 24 см).St Veronica (detail)by MASTER OF FLÉMALLEОна почти прозрачная, красновато-коричневого цвета, на ней запечатлено лицо бородатого мужчины,никаких следов краски на ней нет.В зависимости от наклона лучей солнца лицо то пропадает, то появляется, что в средние века само по себе считалось чудом.Кроме того, изображение есть с обеих сторон - то и другое абсолютно идентичны друг другу.Реликвия потрясает наблюдателя своими свойствами. Она представляет собой смесь диапозитива и голограммы человека средиземноморской наружности с разбитым лицом и сломанным носом. Такие детали, как тонкая борода и выщипанные брови, выглядят почти как фотография или, по крайней мере, негатив.Bourg en Bresse eglise de brou museumПри тусклом освещении изображение теряет цвет, отпечатки становятся темнее и черты лица Христа выглядят такими, как у покойника.Если повернуть изображение против дневного света, оно исчезает, а когда за ним наблюдаешь со стороны алтаря, выражение глаз на лице Иисуса меняется и он как будто смотрит вбок.Считают, что вуаль сделана из виссона – очень качественного шелка, получаемого из нитей мидий, с помощью которых эти моллюски прикрепляются к скалам.В древности из виссона ткали одежду для фараонов и самых высокопоставленных иудейских священнослужителей.------------St Veronica-------------====================================На этих картинах не вуаль, а плотная ткань, как та реликвия, которая хранится в Ватикане.--------Master of Saint Veronica--------German Gothic Era Painter, active ca.1395-1420Одни из первых картин 15 века, этого художника так и называют: Мастер Св.Вероники:Saint Veronica with the Sudariumabout 1420, Master of Saint VeronicaSt. Veronica with the Holy Kerchiefc. 1420Tempera on oak, 78 x 48 cmAlte Pinakothek, Munichhttp://www.artcyclopedia.com/artists/master_of_saint_veronica.html--------------------------"Crucifixion Triptych (Rogier van der Weyden)"circa 1445Medium oil on oak panel-------------------Ганс Мемлинг (около 1433–1494)1470-------------------------Christ Carrying the Cross and Veronica with the SudariumDate between 1477 and 1478------------------------Angels Supporting the Veil of St VeronicaMaster of Saint Ursula Legend c 1475-1500Oil on panel, 62 x 44 cmPrivate collectionSt Veronica with the Sudarium by the Master of Saint Ursula Legend c 1475-1500---------------Dortmund, Westfalen, Propsteikirche, altar, crucifixion {Baegert}, detailбольшая:http://www.flickr.com/photos/ana_sudani/sets/72157626551167866/with/5642401431/------------Эль Греко------------St Veronica With The Sudary 1579 by El Greco-----------Скульптура и рельефы-------Sacro Monte di Varallo, Varallo Sesia, Italy - Polychrome clay statues and frescos; Chapel XXXVI, Jesus on the Road to Calvary, statues by Tabacchetti e Giovanni d'Enrico, 1599-1600Church of la Godivelle : statue (Puy-de-Dôme, France).Santo Domingo de la Calzada18th century tabernacle depicting the Holy Face of Christ.-------------Есть очень много поздних изображений, типа таких картин:Saint Veronica With The Veil - Mattia PretiИх можно посмотреть по ссылкам.Загадок и тайн нерукотворных изображений еще много.Существует целая наука: синдология, которая их исследует.На плащанице- негатив, на платах- позитив, вот и думай:)Я не компетентна в этих вопросах, здесь меня больше интересовала иконография.Буду рада, если кто-то разбирающийся подскажет, где почитать действительно хороший научный анализ. ---------Вуаль св.

Фондовые рынки Азии снижаются

Фондовые рынки Азии продолжили снижение. Ведущие индексы региона теряют в пределах 1%. Индекс Значение Изменение Nikkei 8983,78 -0,95% Hang Seng 19572,93 -1,09% Shanghai Composite 2048,63 -0,22% KOSPI 1906,38 -1,15% на 10:45 мск В Японии снижались котировки компаний цветной металлургии: замедление темпов экономического роста в КНР ставит крест на дальнейшем росте цен на металлы. Под давлением также оказалась капитализация производителей строительной техники Komatsu Ltd (-3,85%) и Hitachi Construction Machinery (-2,56%), спрос на продукцию которых со стороны горнорудных компаний также снизится. Производитель микроэлектроники Nissin Electric (-2,18%) снизил прогноз по прибыли в текущем финансовом году до 4,4 млрд иен из-за потерь, связанных с приобретением китайских активов. Снижение объемов розничных продаж в июле на 0,8% г/г снизило стоимость торговой сети электроники Yamada Denki (-4,12%) и ритейлера Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings (-1,54%).Слабые финансовые показатели китайских компаний не способствовали покупкам на китайском рынке. Морская транспортная компания Cosco объявила о чистом убытке за первое полугодие в размере 4,87 млрд юаней: тарифы на перевозки остаются низкими из-за избытка предложения. Одним из лидеров падения стала China Shipping Container, подешевевшая на 9,09%. Сталелитейные компании, включая Beijing Shougang (-3,05%), стали объектом продаж в отсутствие новостей о дополнительных мерах поддержки китайской экономики. Финансовый сектор показал положительную динамику. Некоторые брокерские компании стали участниками пилотной программы, участники которой могут занимать средства у государственной финансовой корпорации и использовать их для маржинального кредитования клиентов. CITIC Securities (+1,17%), Haitong Securities (+2,23%) и Sinolink Securities (+8,8%) завершают торговую сессию в плюсе.В Корее подешевели акции нефтеперерабатывающих компаний SK Innovation (-4,3%) и S-Oil (-2,8%): ураган "Исаак" не привел к сбоям в работе НПЗ на побережье Мексиканского залива в США. Руководство Hyundai Motor (+0,00%) смогло достичь соглашение с профсоюзом об уровне заработной платы.
