Damen Yichang Cuts 1st Steel for Eesti Gas LNG Bunker Ship

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: Damen On March 18, Damen Yichang Shipyard in China held a steel cutting ceremony for the first of a planned series of short-sea LNG bunker vessels to be built for Estonian energy company Eesti Gaas.The 6,000 cbm vessel, ordered a couple of months ago, and its future sister-ships are intended to accelerate the wider adoption of LNG as a cleaner alternative fuel in the north-eastern region of the Baltic Sea by providing a mobile ship-to-ship distribution service for the first time.At the ceremony the first sections of the 100-meter, LGC 6000 LNG class vessel were cut from 8mm steel plate and will eventually be part of the wall separating the ship’s engine room from the tank hold. Assembly will start in May with the installation of the LNG tanks scheduled for November, according to Damen.Following sea trials, the ship will arrive in Estonia next summer and will start serving LNG clients in the autumn. The new vessel will be capable of carrying out bunker activities at designated locations both in and outside ports.The LGC 6000 LNG is designed to meet the requirements of ICE class 1A certification, allowing it to operate all year in the Gulf of Finland and the northern Baltic. It will also have a green ship notation. A dual-fuel propulsion system will be used for the management of the Boil-Off Gas (BOG) in combination with a gas burner, and the interior of the vessel will feature high-quality accommodation for her crew.Eesti Gaas will operate the vessel under a long-term charter from its parent company Infortar AS. Eesti Gaas is also the LNG supplier for Tallink Grupp’s LNG RoPax vessel Megastar.“The start of steel cutting for this brand-new vessel for Infortar marks an important milestone in the start of her construction. We are very grateful to Eesti Gaas and Infortar for choosing Damen to build their new LNG bunkering vessel,” Peter Anssems, Sales Manager, Sales East and South-East Europe, Damen Shipyards Group, commented.“With this high-tech joint venture, Eesti Gaas and our launch client ferry-operator Tallink will ascend to having the title of the LNG companies with the most competence and experience in this region,” Kalev Reiljan, a member of the management board of Eesti Gaas, said.“Eesti Gaas has performed over 1,500 port-based LNG truck-to-ship refuellings of Tallink’s LNG-powered Megastar ferry and now we are moving on toward offshore, more mobile solutions,” Reiljan added.This project is co-funded by the EU through the CEF Transport program.last_img read more

NS Student Bursary Keeping Tuition Low

first_imgA $1,283 bursary available to every Nova Scotian university student is putting a degree within reach of more families. With the bursary, Nova Scotia has the lowest undergraduate arts and sciences tuition in the Maritimes and, overall, tuition remains at, or below, the national average. “Nova Scotia has a reputation for excellent universities, which is why more than half of Maritime Canada’s students come here,” said Minister of Labour and Advanced Education Marilyn More. “While some people say it costs more to attend university in Nova Scotia, that isn’t the case.” When the bursary is factored into numbers released today, Oct. 9 by the Maritime Provinces Higher Education Commission (MPHEC), undergraduate tuition at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design is reduced to $4,549. Undergraduate arts tuition at other Maritime universities ranges from $4,945 to $7,095. Similarly, undergraduate science tuition at Saint Mary’s University would drop to $4,637. Undergraduate science tuition at other Maritime universities ranges from $5,150 to $7,257. “We don’t think the MPHEC report shows a true picture of what Nova Scotian university students pay for tuition,” says Ms. More.”Each province takes a different approach to managing the cost of a post-secondary tuition so I understand why MPHEC used the amount that appears on a tuition invoice rather than what students actually pay.” But Nova Scotia has capped tuition increases at three per cent for the past two years. Using MPHEC’s numbers, Nova Scotia had some of the lowest tuition increases across the region last year. Tuition increases in other Maritime provinces were as high as four per cent for an undergrad degree. To help keep a university education affordable for Nova Scotian families and taxpayers, the province invested more than $90 million over the past two budgets. This means students receive more assistance in non-repayable grants instead of loans, that they have more money to cover the day-to-day costs of going to university including food, rent, transportation and books. As well, the province’s debt cap limits the amount of debt for a student at $28,560, a reduction of 36 per cent. Using the latest 2011-12 enrolment data available from the Association of Atlantic Universities, there were 70,868 university students in Maritime Canada in September 2011. More than half, 44,338, were attending universities in Nova Scotia. “We’re making a university education affordable for Nova Scotian families and we need the universities to make sure they’re getting maximum bang for every buck they get from government,” said Ms. More. The province is also working with university administrations to help them permanently reduce their annual operating costs.last_img read more

Prison watchdog says politicians need to put McClintic transfer behind us

first_imgOTTAWA – When politicians use particular criminal cases to inflame their supporters it doesn’t help public safety, Canada’s corrections ombudsman said Tuesday.While ombudsman Ivan Zinger wouldn’t comment directly on the controversial transfer of the woman convicted of murdering eight-year-old Tori Stafford from a prison to an Indigenous healing lodge, he said he cringes when politicians start talking about crime and punishment in Canadian society.At a press conference in Ottawa Tuesday following the tabling of Zinger’s annual report, he was asked if the Correctional Service of Canada should consider preventing child killers such as Terri-Lynne McClintic from being transferred to healing lodges, a cause the Conservative opposition has been championing.Zinger said this is because historically political parties have used egregious cases as wedge issues. Political responses to those cases make for bad law, he said.“So I think we need to put this behind us. I don’t see any benefit in these kinds of debates and historically it hasn’t paid dividend to Canada.”He also said that under the previous Conservative government there was a “myriad of policies” focused on criminal laws that in the end did not improve public safety.Canadians’ priorities are employment, education, environment and health care, he said, and law and order is way down the list.Yet, said Zinger, when Stephen Harper was the prime minister, 25 to 40 per cent of Parliamentary sessions were dedicated to debating bills that had criminal-law components. “So, not what I would expect from a government that wants to focus on priorities of Canadians.last_img read more

UN investigating alleged sexual misconduct of peacekeepers in DR of Congo

The United Nations peacekeeping mission in the DRC, known by its French acronym MONUC, reported today that in keeping with the Secretary-General’s “zero tolerance” policy for sexual exploitation and abuse by UN staff, the UN Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS) is investigating possible cases of misconduct by MONUC personnel.It said, however, that information received so far is incomplete and unsubstantiated. The Mission also urges all staff to cooperate with OIOS investigators. In August, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said he was deeply troubled by evidence that several Indian peacekeepers previously assigned to a MONUC unit may have sexually abused civilians there. Mr. Ban said the Indian Government had assured the UN that the allegations would be promptly and thoroughly investigated and, if proven, strict and exemplary action would be taken as per the law. At the same time, MONUC officials said they were on track to stamp out sexual abuse by peacekeepers through measures such as establishing “out-of-bounds” areas for troops and night-time curfews as well as stopping them from going out in civilian clothes.MONUC, which was established in late 1999, is currently the largest UN peacekeeping missions in the world. On Monday, the Security Council extended the mandate of the 20,000-strong operation for another year until 31 December 2009. 24 December 2008The United Nations is investigation allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse by its peacekeepers stationed in the war-ravaged North Kivu province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). read more

New UN guide aims to boost crime prevention in Caribbean and southern

13 January 2009With homicides, property crime and sexual assault exponentially higher in the Caribbean and southern Africa than the rest of the world, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) today released a handbook on prevention policies for those regions, touching on topics ranging from parenting to policing to technological surveillance. With homicides, property crime and sexual assault exponentially higher in the Caribbean and southern Africa than the rest of the world, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) today released a handbook on prevention policies for those regions, touching on topics ranging from parenting to policing to technological surveillance.The Handbook on Planning and Action for Crime Prevention in Southern Africa and the Caribbean Regions is meant to help policymakers and practitioners reduce the burden of crime on the poor, according to UNODC. It asks why Jamaica, for example, has the world’s highest homicide rate, with 54 victims per 100,000 people per year, and why up to 63 per cent of people in some southern African countries have been a victim of crime in the previous calendar year.It draws on lessons from 40 crime prevention programmes to increase knowledge about levels of crime, successful practices in reducing crime rates in developing countries, and multi-actor crime prevention initiatives. Though under-development is obviously a factor, it finds no easy correlations between poverty, development levels or inequality and crime among developing countries themselves.In addition, it says that information on crime rates and the success of anti-crime initiatives is lacking or involves variables that make comparisons difficult in the countries in question, and the Handbook urges further research and in a variety of areas.According to UNODC, the policy recommendations of the Handbook are based on UN principles that maintain that crime prevention should enhance the rule of law and should serve socio-economic development and inclusion.Those same principles promote evidence, and not ideology, in the development of policy and partnerships among Governments, civic and business communitiesFinally, crime prevention should be community-centred and should be developed and promoted on the basis of sustainability and accountability, UNODC said. read more

Crucial to ensure credible Afghan polls stresses UN envoy

15 June 2009The top United Nations official in Afghanistan has stressed the need to ensure that the elections slated for August are credible and that their results are accepted by all, noting that the candidates can contribute to this by campaigning with “dignity and fairness.” Kai Eide, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative in Afghanistan, made the appeal today on the eve of the start of campaigning for the presidential and provincial council elections.“It is the shared responsibility of all candidates to ensure that these elections strengthen Afghanistan’s democratic institutions and people’s confidence in the democratic process,” he said in a statement issued in Kabul. He also stressed that “intimidation, inflammatory language and violence of any sort have no place in this election campaign.”The country’s Independent Electoral Commission has set 20 August as the date for the presidential elections. The top UN envoy also encouraged all Afghans to take part in the polls, stating that “the strength and legitimacy of a future government and provincial authorities depends on the active participation of the people in these elections.I therefore appeal to all voters to follow the election campaign closely and to cast their votes on Election Day,” he stated. Noting that the elections will be administered by Afghan authorities, Mr. Eide said the UN and the international community at large will follow the election process closely and give its full support to an election process that is fair and credible. Mr. Eide, who also heads the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), met yesterday in separate meetings with presidential candidates Ashraf Ghani and Abdullah Abdullah to discuss the election process. He presented them with a set of “Essential Guidelines for Conduct during the Election Process,” which have been issued by the Special Representative and endorsed by the international community. They have also been presented to President Hamid Karzai. The guidelines aim “to ensure a fair and credible election campaign in which there is a level playing field. “The aim should be to avoid illegal interference into the election process and the impartiality of government institutions, election officials as well as representatives of the international community. The guidelines are also intended to ensure fairness in the media coverage of the campaign,” according to a statement issued by UNAMA. read more

UNbacked media forum calls for concrete action on murders of journalists

“Most journalists are killed not in war zones but in their own countries as they try to shine the light of the truth into the darkest recesses of their societies,” they said in a declaration adopted unanimously at the end of a two-day meeting in Mexico City.More journalists have been killed in Mexico this year than in any other country in the Western hemisphere, many of them for reporting on drug trafficking and related corruption.According to the International Press Institute (IPI), seven media professionals have been murdered in Mexico this year, the most recent being a journalist whose body was found earlier this month, as well as a radio presenter killed last month. The murders were strongly condemned by the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), which is tasked with defending press freedom, and which called on the relevant authorities to ensure that the perpetrators are brought to justice.The declaration adopted at the Forum put the onus on governments, which it stated “are primarily responsible for the safety of all their citizens, including those in the news media? They have a responsibility to protect those citizens, pursue their killers and ensure freedom of expression.”During the Forum, Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information Kiyo Akasaka voiced the UN’s concern for the safety of journalists worldwide, while stressing the need to ensure freedom of opinion and expression, and the right to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.“Your continued vigilance in this area – and the safeguarding of this human right – is essential to the future and expansion of an information-based society,” he stated.Like its three predecessors – in Geneva (2003), Tunis (2005) and Kuala Lumpur (2007) – WEMF 4 was organized by the world’s eight regional broadcasting unions.Apart from the safety of media professionals, the meeting also addressed the relation between broadband and broadcasting, electronic journalism and citizen reporters, and the value of archives and the cost of preserving them. 14 November 2009Broadcasters attending the United Nations-backed fourth World Electronic Media Forum (WEMF 4) have called for sustained and concrete global action to address the murder of journalists in peacetime and in war. read more

Ohio State defense will look to slow down Melvin Gordon Badgers run

Wisconsin redshirt-junior running back Melvin Gordon (25) carries the ball during a game against South Florida at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wis., on Sept. 27. Wisconsin won, 27-10.Credit: Courtesy of TNSWhile the Ohio State football team has lost a Heisman Trophy candidate to injury, it must prepare to take on another candidate in the biggest game of the year.Redshirt-junior Wisconsin running back and Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year Melvin Gordon is on many people’s shortlist for the Heisman, as he leads the country in rushing yards with 2,260 to go along with 26 rushing scores.OSU coach Urban Meyer said that while he doesn’t know much about Gordon, he has heard nothing but good things about the Badger running back on and off the field.“Obviously we understand there is another Heisman guy going to be on the field, Gordon, who (Wisconsin coach) Gary (Andersen) tells me the best thing about him is he’s a wonderful young man, too,” Meyer said Monday. “So that’s good for college football.”OSU co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Luke Fickell said gearing up to stop Gordon will not be an easy task.“This is as good a running back they have had, and they have had some great ones,” Fickell said Monday. “Montee Ball, James White and heck, go all the way back to Ron Dayne. I don’t know that they’ve had one as electric as Gordon. Most importantly, you can’t let him get going. We have seen, you get some of those guys going, it’s hard to get them down.”Those guys Fickell talked about include junior Indiana running back Tevin Coleman and senior Minnesota running back David Cobb who combined to rush for 373 yards and six touchdowns against the Buckeyes this season.In one game this season, Gordon managed to rush for 408 yards in a win over Nebraska, which at the time broke the NCAA record for rushing yards in a single game.Despite all his success, Gordon said there is something he has yet to accomplish in his time at Wisconsin that he is hoping to achieve on Saturday.“Since I have been at Wisconsin, I haven’t had a chance to beat Ohio State yet,” Gordon said during the Big Ten players teleconference Monday. “It’s a tough team to go up against and it would be good to have my first win over Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship.”Gordon, who first played for the Badgers as a redshirt-freshman in 2011, exploded onto the national scene during the 2012 Big Ten title game when he rushed for a game-high 216 yards on just nine carries, outrushing both Ball and White.While he was successful in that game, Gordon said his eyes are on the task at hand.“We can’t think about that game because it’s not Nebraska, it’s Ohio State,” Gordon said. “It’s a different team, different players, different coaching staff, we got to think about this game because it’s completely different.”Gordon added that he has watched the Buckeyes on multiple occasions, and complimented the OSU defense’s style of play.“I follow Ohio State … they are one of the best teams in the nation. They love to play physical, they don’t shy away from contact,” Gordon said. “The linebackers, they speak for themselves. They always have great linebackers there.”The man who coaches the OSU linebackers, Fickell, said the Buckeyes must not only focus on Gordon, but other aspects of the Badger offense.“The thing that they still do is they are not just one-dimensional. You still got to know that the most important thing, they are going to rely on him,” Fickell said. “They are going to run the football. He can be one of those guys that beats you. They are good enough up front to be able to give him the opportunity to do those things. It poses a lot of problems.”In last year’s matchup in Columbus, Gordon was bottled up for just 74 yards rushing on 15 carries and was held without a touchdown.The Buckeyes did, however, give up 295 yards passing to now-redshirt-junior Joel Stave, who has yet to throw for more that 220 yards this season.The Buckeyes and Badgers are set to square off at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis at 8:17 p.m. on Saturday. read more

Du lait en poudre Guigoz retiré des magasins Intermarché

first_imgDu lait en poudre Guigoz retiré des magasins IntermarchéMercredi, l’enseigne Intermarché a ordonné à tous ses magasins de retirer un lait en poudre pour bébés de la marque Guigoz. La semaine dernière, des parents ont découvert de la limaille de fer dans une boite achetée à Montech dans le Tarn-et-Garonne.  Si vous avez acheté une boite métallique de lait 1er âge en poudre de la marque Guigoz, faites preuve de la plus grande prudence. Mercredi, l’enseigne Intermarché a procédé à un retrait des rayons et à un rappel de ce produit dans tous les magasins de France. Une décision préconisée par Nestlé, le propriétaire de la marque Guigoz suite à la découverte de limaille de fer dans plusieurs boites. À lire aussiUne femme donne naissance à un bébé cyclope en EgypteEn effet, la semaine dernière, un couple habitant le Tarn-et-Garonne s’est inquiété de l’aspect métallique du lait qu’il venait tout juste de servir à leur enfant. Le père a alors eu le réflexe de mettre un aimant au-dessus du produit, ce qui a fait remonter ce qui a semblé être des copeaux métalliques, a rapporté le Quotidien du Midi. “Il aurait fait le même constat dans une autre boîte”, a précisé à l’AFP le docteur Pascal Fabre, responsable de la cellule de veille et de gestion des alertes sanitaires à l’Agence régionale de santé de Midi-Pyrénées, qui fait remonter l’alerte au 4 octobre.Suite à cette découverte, le médecin traitant puis les services sanitaires ont immédiatement été alertés. Ce sont alors les autorités sanitaires qui ont contacté le fabricant à qui elles ont demandé d’ordonner le retrait des produits concernés. L’information est ensuite parvenue à l’enseigne Intermarché et au magasin de Montech où les boites avaient été achetées qui a immédiatement retiré les boites des rayons. Une mesure diffusée sur le réseau national d’Intermarché, mais qui concerne en fait un seul lot. On ignore pour l’instant l’importance de ce lot et s’il a été distribué dans toute la France, alors que Nestlé n’a pas répondu à plusieurs sollicitations de l’AFP. Néanmoins, “sur le plan médical, je ne pense pas que ce soit d’une grave toxicité pour les enfants”, a expliqué le docteur Pascal Fabre.Le 12 octobre 2011 à 18:02 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Karius admitted that competing with Mignolet is not easy

I knew after the first season where I had an injury, then went back in and played a few games, went back out and then Simon did well and the team qualified for the Champions League, I knew there was a possibility that at the beginning [of the next season], he would start again in the league.”“I just worked hard in training and then the games I had, I tried my best because you can only look at yourself and try to perform well. It’s not easy for a goalkeeper to come in and out, but that was the situation and you have to take it as it is really.”last_img read more

How Augmented Reality Startups Can Change Our Work Reality

first_img This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. Enroll Now for Free Google Glass may not be dead, but it hasn’t exactly taken off as a consumer product. In January, the company killed its social media presence, ramping up its focus on its Project Aura headset instead. This decision points to the future of augmented reality technology as an enterprise solution, and other companies have already entered the market.Some companies are leveraging existing hardware such as iPads and smartphones, but others are developing innovative new products in the AR space. Magic Leap has raised almost $800 million for its “cinematic reality” device (which could be an AR contact lens, if the company’s patent applications are any indicator).And at least one reviewer has deemed Microsoft’s HoloLens “the future of computing.”Related: This Is What It’s Like to Strap a Microsoft HoloLens on Your FaceDigitally improving the real worldAlthough consumers may view AR technology as a gimmick, it could actually revolutionize the workplace by streamlining bulky processes and improving safety and communication.For example, AR technology is helping to transform employee onboarding. Instead of dispatching an employee to spend his or her entire workday training a new hire, AR allows each worker to access context-specific information at any moment. GetVu is one company leading this charge, using wearables and AR to increase efficiency and decrease packing errors in warehouses.Some of the earliest users of AR technology came from the design and construction industries. DAQRI’s smart helmet captures information about a user’s surroundings and delivers instructions and safety guidelines. In highly specialized settings, Scope AR’s Remote AR can deliver 3D instructions to technicians in the field.The possibilities aren’t limited to technical support and training, either; big data visualization has huge potential. Creating a virtual environment for data presentation may take a lot of creativity and computing power, but some early adopters have created handy tools for 3D visualization: An example is IBM and its Max Reality.Enterprise startups can light the way.AR technology is poised for a bright future, with engaged employees, knowledge-sharing and improved, automated data collection. Enterprise startups should follow these four steps to position themselves for leading the charge in this market:Survey the stakeholders. Whether you work with universities or hospitals, architects or warehouse workers, you should find out where the technology will have the most impact. The best augmented reality must reflect actual reality: If a job site is too dark or employees must always wear thick gloves — as Bentley Systems has suggested for utilizing AR in construction — AR may be effective solution. No application is too small.Related: Why Your Startup Needs Augmented Reality Business CardsThink about hardware. Don’t take legacy systems for granted. Many of the enterprise applications of AR are in physical or dangerous environments, and Google Glass or Microsoft’s HoloLens might lack the necessary durability. DigiLens, on the other hand, is in the process of designing an AR helmet for motorcyclists, a scenario in which durability is paramount. An AR application will lose relevance quickly if the hardware cannot stand up to its intended operating environment.Target motivated trailblazers. Find the industries facing big challenges at the intersection of the physical and digital. This could be manufacturers looking to drive efficiency and save money, or farmers needing data to optimize harvests. The companies with the biggest needs will be the ones most motivated to invest and push the limits of this new technology.Consider data inputs. As evidenced by a recent presentation on using HoloLens apps for tracking airline flights, AR technology needs data to function effectively. Find the most valuable and contextual data to drive the desired output. Will static information be enough to optimize the solution, or will it require real-time sensors? A great interface is useless if it lacks the necessary data.Related: 5 Magical Augmented Reality Apps You Should TryCompanies looking to invest in AR technology must ensure that their approach is driven by ROI, but there are many reasons for optimism. Innovators are creating bold new products and leveraging the existing architectures of mobile devices to drive real progress across a range of applications. And that’s creating multiple avenues for growth in the workplace. AR is no longer the future; it’s already here. 4 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.
