    Princess Maria Teresa of Bourbon-Parma, a cousin of King Felipe IV of Spain, died on Thursday from COVID-19.
    The 86-year-old princess is the first royal to die from the coronavirus.
    She died in Paris, and a funeral was held in her honor in Madrid on Friday, according to an announcement from Spain's Prince Sixto Enrique de Bourbon.
    Spain's King Felipe IV and Queen Letizia have both tested negative for COVID-19.
    Only two royals have been confirmed to have tested positive for the coronavirus: Prince Charles, Duke of Wales, and Prince Albert II of Monaco.

    "It was here that in 2017 the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), in a world first, used tidal energy to split water and make hydrogen — a process known as electrolysis."

    In recent years the UK has become home to 7 of the world's 10 largest offshore wind farms, 2 of the 4 largest under construction and 9 of the 14 proposed over 1GW globally. Boris has now committed to 40GW by 2030 - for context, it's currently about 10-12GW, representing 30-40% of the UK energy mix - and Round 4 of bidding has begun with some ~13GW already being built, so I have a feeling harnessing or selling that excess power will become a big deal in the next few years
    A company called Quidnet is working on this in the US. This is going to be massive when they make it work.

    Having maximum power output at night is a great feature for electric vehicles, which overwhelmingly charge at night. If the EV ratio were something like 25% to 50% of vehicles they would soak up as much as the wind farms could deliver.

    80 percent of all Dutch corona patients treated in intensive care are overweight. Diederik Gommers, chairman of the Dutch Association for Intensive Care (NVIC), explains this on Friday Jinek.
    According to Gommers and Peter van der Voort, head of intensive care at the UMCG, there is “apparently” a link between the overweight people and their problems with the coronavirus, although this cannot yet be said with certainty.
     Van der Voort says it is striking how many overweight people experience respiratory problems after being infected with the coronavirus. Gommers suspects that it has to do with their “heavy chest, which makes it harder to breathe”. Similar reports were also reported to have come in from China.
