Allye wants to power your job site with used Land Rover batteries

Allye wants to power your job site with used Land Rover batteries

Allye Energy BESS; courtesy JLR. A new startup is partnering with Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) on a new portable battery energy storage system designed to power your job site with used Range Rover and Range Rover Sport PHEV batteries. The startup is called Allye Energy, and its new Allye Max battery energy storage system (or “BESS“) contains fully seven used Range Rover PHEV battery packs, which have been given a second life in their new role. Second life projects like this extend the serviceable life of vehicle batteries long after they’ve degraded below an 80% operational capacity. That lost 20% will greatly impact the practicality of a family’s primary vehicle. But in a generator powering a portable office trailer or charging up a mini excavator overnight? It’ll hardly be noticed. The average Diesel generator would typically use 16L of fuel per hour, equivalent to a daily total of 129.12kg of CO2 for three hours’ usage. JLR’s Engineering team will use the BESS to power over 1000 hours of testing, saving more than 15,494kg of CO2 …

LSH facilitates sale of Southampton site to MDL Marinas

Waterstone Marine Facility has been sold to MDL Marinas in a deal facilitated by Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH). The waterside facility on Lower William Street covers 3.2 acres and comprises a mixture of office, industrial and warehouse space totalling 83,073 sq ft. It was previously occupied by the industry-funded cooperative Oil Spill Response Limited (OSRL), which is now looking to move premises to Strategic Park in Hedge End. LSH oversaw both the sale to MDL Marinas and the acquisition of OSRL’s new home. Dan Rawlings, head of South East industrial & logistics at LSH, said: “It was a great team effort to advise OSRL through our I&L team advising and negotiating in various capacities. “Securing a sale of this stature in the current market, with the process withstanding multiple turbulent economic factors throughout marketing, was a great achievement on our team’s behalf.” As previously reported, MDL acquired the 3.2-acre plot to provide expansion opportunities for Shamrock Quay Marina and nearby Saxon Wharf Marina.

Isfahan, apparent site of Israel strike, is home to Iranian nuclear facilities

Isfahan, apparent site of Israel strike, is home to Iranian nuclear facilities

Iranian state media reported that no significant damage resulted from Friday’s strikes. Reports of the blasts began appearing on social media about 4 a.m. local time in Iran. Iranian military officials said air defense networks in the area were activated and that a system at a military base in Isfahan “was used for an interception,” according to state media. The International Atomic Energy Agency, the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog, also said Friday that the attack caused no damage to Iran’s nuclear sites, including those in Isfahan. “IAEA is monitoring the situation very closely,” Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi said. He called for “extreme restraint from everybody.” Given Israel’s long-range military capabilities, the attack appeared to be only a pinprick. The Israeli official — speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive military matters — did not confirm the location of the strikes but said they were intended to send a message to Iran that Israel has the ability to strike inside the country. A person familiar with official discussions about the attack, who spoke …

Meghan Markle: Royal prankster hijacks Duchess of Sussex lifestyle brand and redirects to site for rival King Charles jam

Meghan Markle: Royal prankster hijacks Duchess of Sussex lifestyle brand and redirects to site for rival King Charles jam

Stay ahead of the curve with our weekly guide to the latest trends, fashion, relationships and more Stay ahead of the curve with our weekly guide to the latest trends, fashion, relationships and more A royal prankster appears to have spread some mischief after buying a similar domain name to Meghan Markle’s luxury lifestyle brand and redirecting to a Waitrose page for King Charles’s rival jam. Just a day after The Independent revealed one version of the American Riviera Orchard site leads to a food bank, this paper has spotted a further variation of the site name cheekily redirecting to ‘Duchy Organic Strawberry Jam’. The mischief making comes after the Duchess of Sussex launched her brand with 50 beautifully packaged jars of strawberry preserve sent to influencers across the US. Photographs of the jars were soon shared across social media with overly-sweet messages from recipients delighted with their Montecito hamper. But one prankster banking on users mistyping the mouthful of a brand name appears keen to pit the King versus the Duchess in the jam …

British government deems man’s art-filled apartment a historic site

British government deems man’s art-filled apartment a historic site

When Claire Jones stepped into the apartment of her husband’s late uncle for the first time, she discovered what looked like the trappings of a carnival. A giant concrete sculpture of a roaring lion’s head stood in the living room, enveloping the fireplace. Looming in the next room was a giant Minotaur head. Papier-mâché sculptures littered the hallways and colorful murals adorned every wall and ceiling, even in the bathroom. Jones and her family had known Ron Gittins as an eccentric and solitary artist. But they hadn’t realized until shortly after he died in 2019 at age 79 that he had carved, sculpted and painted his passion onto the walls of his rented apartment in Birkenhead, a riverside town in northwestern England where he lived alone. It couldn’t stay, Gittins’s landlord had said. But Jones knew she wanted to preserve the scene. “I was just kind of like, ‘We can’t just let this go,’” she told The Washington Post. For years, Gittins’s family worked to protect his whimsical life’s work, insisting that the apartment, “Ron’s …

Dozens arrested and thousands contacted after scammer site taken offline | UK News

Dozens arrested and thousands contacted after scammer site taken offline | UK News

Dozens of people around the world have been arrested after police disrupted a UK-founded website scamming victims on an industrial scale. LabHost, a site set up in 2021, tricked as many as 70,000 UK victims, obtaining 480,000 card numbers and 64,000 PINs worldwide, the Metropolitan Police said. It was created by a criminal network and enabled more than 2,000 users to set up phishing websites designed to steal personal information such as email addresses, passwords and bank details. Criminal subscribers could log on and choose from existing sites or request bespoke pages replicating those of trusted brands such as banks, healthcare agencies and postal services. Image: Person arrested in connection with the investigation. Pic: Met Police The website even provided a tutorial to cater for wannabe fraudsters with limited IT knowledge, with a robotic voice saying at the end: “Stay safe and good spamming”. Those subscribing to worldwide membership – meaning they could target victims all around the world – paid between £200 and £300 a month. Since it began, the site has received just …

Students turning to cyberfraud as huge phishing site infiltrated, police reveal | Cybercrime

University students have turned to cyber fraud to boost their income, police have said, as they revealed they have infiltrated a huge phishing site on the dark web responsible for scamming tens of thousands of people. The site called LabHost was active since 2021 and was a cyber fraud superstore, allowing users to produce realistic-looking websites from household names such as the big banks, ensnaring victims around the world including 70,000 in the UK. Victims entered their sensitive details, some of which were used to steal money, but those behind the site also made money by selling details on the dark web for fraudsters to use. The Metropolitan police said that the main victims were aged 25 to 44 years, who conduct most of their lives online. Police believe they arrested one of the site’s main alleged masterminds this week among 37 suspects detained across the UK and overseas. The Met said arrests were made at Manchester and Luton airports, and in Essex and London. Policing in the UK is under pressure to show it …

Owners of demolished Crooked House pub propose rebuilding it on new site | UK news

Owners of demolished Crooked House pub propose rebuilding it on new site | UK news

The owners of the former Crooked House pub, which was demolished after a suspected arson attack, have put forward a plan to rebuild it on a different site. ATE Farms Ltd, the company that owned what was known as “Britain’s wonkiest inn”, has said that rebuilding the pub in the same spot would “not provide a sustainable community facility”. The owners were ordered to rebuild it by South Staffordshire council in February. ATE Farms said in appeal documents that it had a “genuine and practical” solution to rebuilding the Crooked House on a nearby plot of land also owned by the company. The building began life as a farmhouse in 1765. After heavy mining in the area during the 19th century, one side of the building began to sink – creating its wonky demeanour. The Crooked House caught fire on 5 August 2023 in a suspected arson attack. Staffordshire police made six arrests in connection with the blaze, but no one has been prosecuted. It was demolished days later. In March, Stephen Levrant, who runs …
