It won the 1998 Supercopa de España and reached the 1999 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup Final. In 1990–91, Mallorca reached the Copa del Rey final for the first time, losing by one goal to Atlético Madrid. Argentine Héctor Cúper was hired as manager in 1997. In his first season, the club reached the 1998 Copa del Rey Final, lost on penalties to FC Barcelona after a 1–1 draw in Mestalla. However, as Barcelona won the league, Mallorca were their opponents in the 1998 Supercopa de España and won 3–1 on aggregate for their first major honour. Barcelona's double meant Mallorca entered the 1998–99 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, the final staging of the tournament – the lost the final 2–1 to Italy's S.

S. Lazio at Villa Park. In 1999, Mallorca finished a best-ever 3rd and qualified for the first time to the UEFA Champions League, but were eliminated on the away goals rule by Molde FK of Norway before the group stage. Luis Aragonés matched 3rd place in 2001, before leaving for an Atlético Madrid still in the second tier. On 28 June 2003, Mallorca won the Copa del Rey with a 3–0 win over Recreativo de Huelva in the final in Elche. Mallorca was relegated from La Liga on the last day of the 2012–13 season.

Green electricity in the United Kingdom

Green electricity in the United Kingdom. There are a number of suppliers offering green electricity in the United Kingdom. In theory these types of tariffs help to lower carbon dioxide emissions by increasing consumer demand for green electricity and encouraging more renewable energy plant to be built. Since Ofgem's 2014 regulations there are now set criteria defining what can be classified as a green source product; as well as holding sufficient guarantee of origin certificates to cover the electricity sold to consumers, suppliers are required to show additionality by contributing to wider environmental and low carbon funds. Care needs to be taken in selecting a green energy supplier. A National Consumer Council report in December 2006 concluded that many green tariffs are not delivering the environmental benefits they claim to, that consumers may not be making the positive contribution they think they are. In the United Kingdom, suppliers are obliged to purchase a proportion of their electricity from renewable sources under the Renewables Obligation and there is a danger that energy suppliers may sell such green electricity under a premium'green energy' tariff, rather than sourcing additional green electricity supplies.

In addition to selling the green electricity to the consumer, it is possible for the supplier to sell the associated Renewables Obligation Certificates to another supplier who has failed to meet their quota, rather than'retiring' the certificate from the marketplace. On several occasions in May 2016, Britain burned no coal for electricity for the first time since 1882. In April 2018, Britain burned no coal for a period of 76 hours, from 10am 21 April to 10am 24 April – the longest period since the 19th century. Non-domestic consumers can avoid paying the Climate Change Levy by acquiring Levy Exemption Certificates from renewable energy suppliers. Since these are not required by domestic consumers, it is possible for the supplier to sell the certificates to the non-domestic sector, as well as selling the renewables obligation certificate and the electricity. Prior to the OFGEM green supply regulations, some green energy tariffs involved carbon offsetting, rather than purchasing or investing in renewable energy, a practice that does not meet with universal approval.

George Monbiot, an English environmentalist and writer, has compared carbon offsets to the practice of purchasing indulgences during the Middle Ages, whereby people believed they could purchase forgiveness for their sins. Monbiot says that carbon offsets are an excuse for business as usual with regard to pollution. In June 2008, Defra announced that, with effect from the financial year 2008/9, Green Electricity is to be treated the same as average grid electricity for carbon dioxide reporting purposes, it was treated as if there were no CO2 emissions associated with it. Explaining the change, the Minister responsible said "I want to make sure that the green tariff market, which has grown over recent years, is clear for consumers and businesses about the precise benefit their tariff brings. Many energy suppliers offer green tariffs to businesses and domestic customers who want to make a contribution to environmental projects or help tackle climate change, but these differ in what they deliver."

He added "It is difficult to demonstrate that buying a renewable electricity tariff is offering additional carbon emissions reductions compared with what suppliers are required to source to meet the Renewables Obligation. I have therefore decided that we will change the voluntary corporate reporting guidelines to bring them into line with current best practice and provide coherent carbon accounting; this will mean that for the reporting year 2008-9, best practice is expected to be for businesses to use a grid average rate – average rate of carbon emissions associated with electricity transmitted on the national grid – unless their supplier can prove the carbon benefits are additional." This does not affect green electricity generated on site, which can continue to be reported as producing zero emissions. In 1999 the Future Energy national certification scheme for green electricity was launched, however it was closed in 2002 because too few suppliers were prepared to accept the proposed revised requirements.

In the absence of a replacement national scheme in the UK, the international Eugene Network, whose main purpose was to give accreditation to national green energy schemes, supported Ecotricity and indicates that Good Energy would be ready for accreditation should a Eugene Standard compliant scheme be introduced in the UK. The Eugene standard was discontinued in February 2009, leaving no internationally recognised means of comparing green electricity. In an attempt to end some of the premium priced offerings by suppliers which were doing no more than repackaging electricity that they had to buy under the Renewables Obligation, the UK Government's Office of Gas and Electricity Markets Ofgem proposed a voluntary scheme for independently verified energy ratings for electricity suppliers; this was intended to include a detailed analysis of the carbon content of the supply, but some critics felt that this lacked sufficient emphasis on additionality, the actual energy used by consumers from the grid was always a mix of brown and green sources.

After running a series of workshops in early 2008, their proposals turned away from a focus on the source of electricity, to look instead at whether an environmental benefit is demonstrated. Ofgem suggest that this can only be done if the supplier invests part of payment received into one of the following a

YĆ«dai Yamaguchi

Yūdai Yamaguchi is a Japanese film director who has worked in the comedy and horror genres. He has "made a name for himself by mixing goofy gore with manga-esque escapades and plain utter weirdness". Yamaguchi attended the Japan Academy of Moving Images. After graduation he won a number of awards at independent film festivals. In 2000 he co-wrote. Yamaguchi was a second-unit director on the movie, he made his debut as a feature film director with Battlefield Baseball released theatrically in July 2003. This horror-sports-comedy again starred Tak Sakaguchi and the film won the Grand Prize at the 14th Yubari International Fantastic Film Festival held in February 2003. Yamaguchi was a guest at the festival, he followed this in 2004 with Babaa Zone, a compilation of five short skits in collaboration with manga artist Gatarō Man. In late 2004, Yamaguchi was one of the directors of Takashi Shimizu's comedy-horror TV series The Great Horror Family; as with Battlefield Baseball, his next feature, Cromartie High - The Movie from July 2005, was based on a manga series.

This episodic comedy, which made its New York premiere at the 2006 New York Asian Film Festival, revolves around the hapless Cromartie High with a student body composed of thugs, yakuza look-alikes, a giant, a gorilla and an obnoxious robot. Kamiyama the only normal student, tries to improve things - but the aliens invade. Yamaguchi's September 2006 film Meatball Machine, which he co-directed with Jun'ichi Yamamoto based on an earlier film by Yamamoto, has aliens taking over human bodies and turning them into bio-mechanical monsters. In August 2008, Yamaguchi released Tamami: The Baby's Curse, a horror story about a monster-baby, a more subdued work than his previous manic comedy efforts. Along with Noboru Iguchi, Yamaguchi directed the fake TV commercials for good friend Yoshihiro Nishimura's cult horror film Tokyo Gore Police after Yamaguchi suggested that it might balance out the dark tone of the movie. In a change of pace, Yamaguchi left the horror aspects behind to direct a straight comedy in the February 2009 release Elite Yankee Saburo with special makeup effects by Yoshihiro Nishimura.

The film followed a Japanese TV comedy shown on TV Tokyo in 2007, itself based on a manga by Shuji Abe about a nerdy boy entering high school who because his older brothers were delinquents is labeled a troublemaker - an "elite yankee". The movie retained the original cast from the TV series including lead actor Hideo Ishiguro. "Yūdai Yamaguchi at All Cinema". "Yūdai Yamaguchi at JMDB". Sharp, Jasper. "Yudai Yamaguchi Interview".
