Chucko - inertial confinement fusion is a form of hot fusion, using lasers to generate the heat under pressure required to initiate fusion. Legitimate science (albeit hard to achieve in practice), a far cry from the cold fusion pseudoscience scam peddled by Woody's Industrial Heat.

Just in: From 16:00-17:00 the 2019 Jenkin Lecture will be given by Professor Yiannis Ventikos, Kennedy Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Head of the Mechanical Engineering Department, University College London. The lecture is titled: 'Fusion as a method of power generation: science, engineering, entrepreneurship and adventure'. Fusion power is the holy grail of energy generation - free power extracted from water. Yiannis tells the story of Inertial Confinement Fusion, an Oxford idea being pursued by spin-out company First Light Fusion. He reveals the technical underpinnings and the decision-making behind taking this into the realm of private funding. After the Jenkin Lecture I would like to invite everyone to join us for a drinks and canapés reception where you will have a chance to network with your fellow alumni and academics from the department. I wonder which will be colder - the fusion or the canapés?

There was a mention a while back about Wise Funds (based near Oxford) having a stake in Woody's funds (maybe in WPCT). They've recently produced a blog article which explains rather well Woody's philosophy about the undervalued UK-centric market. There's a lot of sense here, and it chimes with what Woody says (though not with what Woody does!!) - https://wise-funds.co.uk/news/in-the-eye-of-the-storm

discount to net assets now 46%. todays net assets 78.69p And as we all agree, that net asset price could be wrong, the figure could be much higher. What an opportunity for the brave.

Been no Holdings RNS's (eg the ITX dump at 1.10p) and strangely, no update to portfolio to 31st July yet - is still stuck on 30th June. Expecting to see LLOY in the Top 10 for WEIF when it's finally updated, but only a guess/don't know which others. Can't have put all £800m into LLOY or more housebuilders surely..

brian, Https://www.investegate.co.uk/rivington-strt-hold--rivp-/rns/correction---continuation-of-strategic-review/201205181314056742D/ And Https://www.investegate.co.uk/rivington-street-holdings-plc--rivp-/prn/resignation-of-non-board-director/20120613070000P73D9/ Not a happy parting of the ways as we all know and therefore proves my point. No "we would like to thank / wish him well blah blah". So thanks for proving my point.

More on Ultrahaptics: Neil Woodford has sold his stake in Ultrahaptics to private equity firm Mayfair Equity Partners. The troubled fund manager has faced criticism for the level of his illiquid stakes in early stage firms such as Ultrahaptics, where he owned 20pc. Mr Woodford met the firm in 2015 and led Ultrahaptics’ £10.1m Series A funding round. Tom Carter, Ultrahaptics co-founder, said Mr Woodford encouraged the firm to raise significantly more than its initial £5m target. Mayfair led a £35m funding round in the firm last year. The firm was valued at £150m after its 2018 funding. It was reported Mr Woodford was in talks to sell his stake for £20m; Ultrahaptics would not confirm the price but said he exited at a profit. Christopher Olds, Ultrahaptics finance chief, said “it’s a pity” Mr Woodford was no longer an investor “but I understand the economics. It was a good deal for him and it was a good deal for the other investors”.

How deeply involved was Woody in what seems to have gone on at BUR? The CFO left in unusual circumstances shortly after what appears to be a move to cover up BUR's fraud at INVESCO investee Napo and BUR has already spoken about how conflicted INVESCO were in this matter. Will Miriam spill the beans and throw everyone under the bus to save her own neck? All the RNS informing of her departure says is "Miriam Connole, Burford's CFO, has left Burford to pursue other opportunities." How many other senior management / directors leaving announcements have not come with the obligatory we would like to thank and wish all the best type blah and have not been indicative of a serious bust up of some form (even when you get the blah it does not mean all is well).

Woody ... the one that got away! "Silicon Valley eyes Ultrahaptics, the £150m Bristol-based tech firm that lets you ‘feel’ virtual objects" In 2015, the firm met with investors with the target of raising £5m in funding. That all changed following a meeting with investment fund manager Neil Woodford. Woodford encouraged Ultrahaptics to increase its fundraising target, and Carter recalls a “fun” meeting with the fund manager. “He was like: ‘no, no, more,’” Carter says. The company eventually closed the round at over £10m, doubling its original goal. Woodford acquired a 20pc stake in the business, but sold his shares earlier this year after he began to face criticism for the level of his illiquid investments in unlisted firms. Since Woodford’s backing, Ultrahaptics has found a wide range of potential customers for its technology. Some ideas are “really absolutely crazy”, Carter says, describing a research project that uses Ultrahaptics for targeted drug delivery, turning on tiny robots using ultrasound as they travel through the bloodstream. Carter is also keen to use mid-air tech to replace touchscreens in public places such as hospitals to stop the spread of superbugs. Have any Silicon Valley firms come knocking on Ultrahaptics’ door, keen to snap up the British firm? Carter smiles before reciting a practised line: “We are focused on growing the company to be as big as it possibly can be.” https://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/2019/08/18/silicon-valley-eyes-ultrahaptics-150m-bristol-based-tech-firm/
