Lomar Committed to Its Large-Scale Fleet Expansion

first_imgzoom Lomar has continued its large-scale fleet expansion with the addition of six container ships to its fleet, the declaration of options on its newbuilding orders as well as the placement of new orders for bulk carriers from the COSCO shipyard in China. These latest developments take the company’s fleet to over 60 including purchase options.The Boston Trader and the New York Trader are 2004 built 1,100 TEU container ships acquired from a German K.G. Additionally Lomar has added four Singaporean built 1078 TEU container ships to its fleet – the Pac Antilia, Pac Aires, Pac Aquarius and Pac Aquila.Meanwhile, Lomar has declared options on another five newbuildings and announced two new orders, all from Chinese shipyards. Two of the options are for 1,100 TEU container ships from the Yangzijiang shipyard. They are designed by leading Chinese design institute SDARI (Shanghai Merchant Ship Design and Research Institute) and ships have much improved fuel consumption and the ability to carry up to 220 reefer containers. This leaves Lomar with two options still available from the shipyard. Lomar has also declared another purchase option within its order for 2190 TEU container ships from China’s Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard bringing the total firm orders to four. This vessel is due for delivery in 2016 and the company retains two more purchase options for sister vessels from this shipyard. Finally, Lomar has significantly increased its commitment to ‘Ultramax’ bulk carriers from the COSCO Group in China by making firm two of the options that it held as well as announcing that it holds two new options to purchase. This means that Lomar now holds eight firm COSCO orders plus two remaining options.The first of Lomar’s ‘Ultramax’ bulk carriers from COSCO will be delivered in January 2014. The ‘Dolphin’ 64,000 dwt vessels are SDARI designed and meet the highest standards for fuel efficiency and environmental compliance, including the latest IACS Common Structural Rules (CSR).Achim Boehme, CEO of Lomar stated: “We are delighted to be adding to our container fleet while further asserting our commitment to the newbuilding sector with ships that are modern, efficient and well-suited to the demand profile that we see emerging in the bulker and container sectors.”Lomar is the shipping subsidiary of the Libra Group, a diversified international business group. The company has a mixed fleet of vessels including bulk carriers, container ships, LPG and chemical tankers as well as offshore vessels.

IOCs RD centre patent filing crosses 1000mark

first_imgNew Delhi: State-owned Indian Oil Corp (IOC) Tuesday said its research and development centre at Faridabad has become the first public sector oil and gas company to cross the milestone of filing 1,000 patents. The Centre filed the 1,001st patent this week, the company said in a statement here. “The R&D Centre’s IP (Intellectual Property) portfolio comprises 794 active patents, of which 542 patents were granted abroad and 252 in India. The centre has also registered a healthy commercialisation rate for its patents, higher than the global average,” it said. Also Read – Commercial vehicle sales to remain subdued in current fiscal: IcraComplimenting the R&D team for lending a competitive edge to IOC’s business through innovative products, processes and technologies, company chairman Sanjiv Singh said several quality upgradation projects implemented at its refineries for production of ultra-clean BS-VI grde fuels are based on deep desulphurisation, isomerisation and dimerisation technology patents developed in-house. IOC’s internationally-awarded INDMAX technology patent, successfully commercialised at Paradip Refinery, improves LPG yields by 40 per cent besides ensuring the highest propylene yields in its class, the statement said adding the centre’s bio-methanation technology is best-in-class in methane yields and is being implemented at the Namakkal (Tamil Nadu) plant for production of compressed bio-gas (CBG). Also Read – Ashok Leyland stock tanks over 5 pc as co plans to suspend production for up to 15 daysEstablished in 1972, the centre is a pioneer in downstream petroleum sector R&D and has received wide acclaim for indigenising lubricants technology by launching the SERVO brand. With over 5,000 formulations and over 800 active grades covering all conceivable applications, including rail-road and marine oils, SERVO has grown to be the largest selling lubricant brand in India. From being the birth place of the highly successful, fuel-efficient ‘Nutan’ kerosene wick-stove in the late 70s, the R&D centre has come a long way in the past four decades. According to SSV Ramakumar, Director (R&D), IOC, the centre has been focussing on developing high-quality, environment-friendly products and innovative refinery processes that boost resource efficiency, enhance refinery-petrochemicals integration, and offer flexibility in product pattern and yields in line with market demand. With 50 per cent of its active patents in the refining category, followed by 16 per cent in bio-technology, the R&D team has made considerable progress even in the highly IP-crowded field of Ziegler-Natta catalysts, used in production of polymers (plastics). “We have not only created white space here but succeeded in earning a rich haul of patent grants that are well recognised by global majors,” he said. In line with IOC’s business objectives, the R&D centre has expanded its research domain to cover petrochemicals, nano-technology, alternative fuels, energy storage solutions and Hydrogen-based fuel cell research, among others, the statement added.last_img read more

World Series suffers as a TV attraction especially compared to pro football

NEW YORK, N.Y. – There’s a World Series going on, television fans. Not that many people seem to care.The Fall Classic between Kansas City and San Francisco, headed to its sixth game on Tuesday night, has only served to amplify baseball’s loosening grip on armchair fans, particularly in comparison to professional football.Through five games, the Series has averaged 12.07 million viewers on Fox, the Nielsen Co. said. Currently, the least-watched Series ever was the Giants’ four-game sweep of the Detroit Tigers two years ago. None of the first five games has even topped 13 million people, Nielsen said.By contrast, three regular-season NFL games that aired in prime time last week, on CBS, NBC and ESPN, all had more than 13 million, with CBS’ Thursday night game getting more than 20 million viewers.Most likely, only a winner-take-all seventh game would help this Giants-Royals matchup avoid the dubious distinction of least popular World Series since it became a regular TV fixture.World Series seventh games — baseball’s ultimate event — have happened only five times since 1988. The least-watched seventh game, with the St. Louis Cardinals beating the Texas Rangers in 2011, had 25.4 million viewers. The 1991 game between Minnesota Twins and Atlanta Braves drew a staggering 50 million viewers.Five World Series games in prime time couldn’t help Fox win last week in the ratings, although the network led among viewers ages 18 to 49.The ABC comedy “Manhattan Love Story,” won a contest no TV show ever wants to: first new fall series to be cancelled. Its last episode last week had 2.6 million viewers, fewer than any other first-run shows last week on the four biggest networks.CBS won the week with an average of 11.5 million viewers in prime time. Fox had 10.1 million viewers, NBC had 7.8 million, ABC had 6.6 million, Univision had 2.8 million, the CW had 1.7 million, ION Television had 1.2 million and Telemundo had 1.1 million.ESPN was the week’s most popular cable network, averaging 2.95 million viewers in prime time. AMC had 1.73 million, the Disney Channel had 1.71 million, Fox News Channel had 1.64 million and USA had 1.62 million.NBC’s “Nightly News” topped the evening newscasts with an average of 8.4 million viewers. ABC’s “World News Tonight” was second with 7.9 million and the “CBS Evening News” had 6.5 million viewers.For the week of Oct. 20-26, the top 10 shows, their networks and viewerships: NFL Football: San Diego at Denver, CBS, 20.22 million; NFL Football: Green Bay at New Orleans, NBC, 18.8 million; “NCIS,” CBS, 17.13 million; “NCIS: New Orleans,” CBS, 16.13 million; “The Big Bang Theory,” CBS, 16.02 million; “The Walking Dead,” AMC, 13.8 million; “Sunday Night NFL Pre-Kick,” NBC, 13.55 million; NFL Football: Houston at Pittsburgh, ESPN, 13.28 million; Minutes,” CBS, 13.23 million; World Series Game 2: San Francisco at Kansas City, Fox, 12.92 million.___ABC is owned by The Walt Disney Co.

New Victims commissioner sparks row with prosecutors as she says policy of

Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Dame Vera said: “As Victims’ Commissioner, I cannot be expected to adhere to the official line that mobile phone data is only required when necessary to achieve a reasonable line of enquiry. “The overwhelming evidence from those who support rape victims is that the reality is so very different. This evidence has led me to conclude victims are routinely being asked to hand over their mobile phones, even in some cases where their attacker is a stranger and there could not have been any communication between them.“I want this practice to stop. I want to see a change in culture, where the current digital download form is withdrawn and where only proportionate downloads are made, and only in cases where it is absolutely necessary.” The new Victims’ Commissioner has sparked a row after accusing prosecutors and police of taking “irrelevant” personal information from rape victims’ phones that discredits them.In an outspoken attack on the policy of extracting data from phones, Dame Vera Baird warned rape victims that police would refuse to take their case unless they agreed to have their “whole mobile phone” content searched.In her tweet, she added: “If there’s anything 2 your discredit however irrelevant they’ll hand it 2 your defendant 2B used to allege you’re lying. That’s if the crime U report is rape.”The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) hit back against “misleading and inaccurate” reports, saying digital searches must not be “merely speculative” or “an exercise to find material to undermine the complainant.”“It is simply not true that material which is not relevant to the case will be shared with the defence or shown in court,” said the CPS.Dame Vera’s comments come after Elizabeth Denham, the Information Commissioner, said she had “serious concerns” over “digital strip searching” and its impact on privacy rights.A coalition of 10 civil liberties organisations has also warned police and CPS requests to download the contents of victims’ mobile phones amounted to a “digital strip search” and were unlawful. read more

Dublin boys win Lego award for robot reminding people to take medicines

first_imgA TEAM OF SCHOOLBOYS from Dublin have won a European award for building a robot and app to remind people to take vital medicines at regular intervals throughout the day.The boys from Jobstown in Tallaght took a top award at the First Lego League robotics tournament in Paderborn in Germany, beating 52 teams from 34 countries to win an award specifically recognising their team spirit.The team of seven boys – aged between 11 and 16 – designed and built a Lego robot, which worked with a smartphone app which alerted elderly people that it was the appropriate time to take their daily medication.The app, which works through voice recognition, also reminds users of their appointments and other daily tasks.The boys clubbed together at the Citywise after-school robotics club in Jobstown, and went forward to the European title having won the Irish title in January.“What really impressed the judges was the way the lads worked together, their continual good spirit and their good humour despite the pressure of competition,” said team-co-ordinator Christopher Smyth.“They were a real team,” he added.Team member 16-year-old Himanshu Singh, from Ard Mór, said the standard of robots at the competition had been very high – but that the team had learned a lot from the experience and hoped to use its new knowledge in next year’s contest.The team was sponsored by software firm SAP Ireland, which employs 1,200 people across Ireland, and whose staff helped to train the team.Read: Disney has a creepy new robot you can play catch withlast_img read more

The UK Parliament has been suspended So what happens next

first_img Share5 Tweet Email Image: Don Hammond/PA Images As the clock ticks down, get all the best Brexit news and analysis in your inbox: Tue 6:16 AM 33 Comments The UK Parliament has been suspended. So what happens next? After MPs rejected an early election once again, parliament has been suspended. THE UK PARLIAMENT is closed. After rejecting Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s second attempt to force a general election, parliament was suspended in the early hours of this morning. There were angry scenes in the House of Commons as the procedure took place. Rebellious MPs sang, chanted and attempted to block Speaker John Bercow from entering the House of Lords.  Source: past week saw a group of cross-party MPs seize control of the Commons to force through a bill aimed at blocking a no-deal Brexit, veteran Tory MPs ejected from the Conservative Party and Jacob Rees-Mogg lie supine across Commons leather. So what happens now?MPs are due back in parliament on 14 October for what’s known as the Queen’s Speech, which officially opens the House of Commons once again. Three days later on the 17th, EU leaders will gather for a crucial summit in Brussels. It should become clearer at this point if Johnson intends to take Britain out of the EU with a deal or without a deal. Johnson had promised MPs a vote on his Brexit strategy scheduled for 21 and 22 October.But, of course, there is the Benn Bill, which was passed into law yesterday. That bill is designed to extend Article 50 and prevent the UK from leaving the EU without a deal. It would push the current Brexit deadline of 31 October to next year at the earliest.One of the conditions of the bill is that Johnson must either seek MPs’ approval for a withdrawal deal or their approval for a no-deal Brexit by 19 October. Neither of those seem likely outcomes. Related Read Image: Don Hammond/PA Imagescenter_img If Johnson has done neither of these by then, he must request a Brexit extension from the EU until 31 January 2020, the bill states. Johnson, however, has said that he’d rather be “dead in a ditch” than demand an Article 50 extension. He has also said he’d follow the law, though. All in all, after a week of rejections, ejections and rebellions, today is the beginning of the calm before the proverbial. In the meantime, the Labour Party is gearing up for its annual conference which will take place in Brighton from 21 to 25 September. Two days later on the 27th, the Conservative Party will descend on Manchester for its assembly.Amidst all that, it’s being suggested the UK and EU could still do a deal, with the return to the table of a Northern Ireland-only backstop providing a possible solution to the impasse – coupled with an expanded role for Stormont.  02.08.19 Cast-iron and vital, or an anti-democratic bureaucracy: what is the Irish backstop? 24,882 Views By Cónal Thomas Short URL Tuesday 10 Sep 2019, 7:15 AM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

When Should You Call 911 About A Bear Sighting

first_imgJeff Selinger, Kenai Peninsula Area Biologist:  “Bears are out moving around so you know pick up the garbage and the trash around the houses and minimize the potential of having a negative encounter with bears by being aware when you’re out in the woods.” Police say if people see a brown bear in town, they still should call 911 since that is more rare. Police say most bear sightings don’t need to be called in to 911. But police do want to hear about bears that are aggressive, sick, injured, orphaned or rummaging through trash. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska Department Game and Fish wants to warn the public that bears are on the move and to be “Bear Aware”. However, Police are urging people to stop calling emergency lines to report non-emergency bear sightings. Selinger: “The Bears are going to be looking for fish as well, keep your property picked up and minimize attractants that might bring bears into a neighborhood.

Amazon Prime Air gets more planes to boost oneday shipping to you

first_img 50 surprising things people are buying on Amazon right now 50 Photos Tags Share your voice 0 Amazon’s drones and robots want to take over your deliveries In April, Amazon said it was spending $800 million this quarter to bolster its shipping infrastructure to support the change. Last month, CEO Jeff Bezos attended a groundbreaking ceremony for Amazon’s new $1.5 billion air transportation hub in Hebron, Kentucky. Amazon has also built out a network of 10,000 truck trailers.Still, this work has come with new challenges for the company. Pilots working for Prime Air have regularly complained about poor pay and lousy working conditions. Also, FedEx this month decided not to renew its Express air shipping contract with Amazon, a move widely seen as a reaction to Amazon expanding its own shipping network. 1:32 Post a comment Before that Amazon Prime shipment gets to you, it’ll probably hitch a ride in a plane like this one. Amazon Amazon on Tuesday said it agreed to lease 15 more Boeing cargo planes from GE Capital Aviation Services, helping the e-commerce titan continue growing its air fleet so it can speed up Prime deliveries.The 15 Boeing 737-800 planes are in addition to the five planes Amazon already agreed to lease from GECAS earlier this year. The company has 42 planes flying today, and by 2021 it will operate 70 planes.Amazon expanded its fleet as part of its expensive effort to transition its Prime two-day shipping program to one day in the US. That work is already resulting in packages arriving earlier at Prime customers’ doorsteps and may help Amazon maintain its competitive edge against rivals like Walmart.

The pandemic entered Alaska in 1918 in Nome, western Alaska and Southeast. Despite efforts to keep it out of Bristol Bay, it hit the area in 1919. Historian Katie Ringsmuth of Tundra Vision organized the discussion along with Tim Troll. Troll is the executive director of the Bristol Bay Heritage land trust. He says when he lived in Dillingham, he was given artifacts from the family of a man at the center of the crisis there, Dr Linus French.Doctor Linus Hiram French with Orphans in 1919 (Courtesy of Tim Troll)Listen Now TROLL: And in particular looking at some of the photographs after I understood and began to understand the history of the region. Realized that we were looking at photographs of orphans. Orphans from this flu that struck Bristol Bay in 1919. And just from talking to people in Dillingham and in the region, there’s hardly a soul that doesn’t have somebody in their family that was an orphan. So their family history comes from, starts in many cases, from the orphans who were then transferred to Kanakanak Hospital, still in existence in Dillingham, in 1919. And French was in the middle of it. He was a doctor at Kanakanak. Founded the hospital actually.RINGSMUTH: This disease came from the trenches of World War I and made its way around the globe. Killed millions of people and then it came to Alaska and it killed more Alaskans per capita than any other place, save Samoa. Just to give you an example, in one week, 90 people were dead and that was just on the Naknek River alone.TOWNSEND: Ugashik and Naknek were hit hard but Egegik had no cases. Is that true?RINGSMUTH: Right. According to the reports, it was missed, which is one of the strange mysteries of this disease. Just to give you an example, on one of the written inscriptions, it says “Also on this date, a boat drifted near the Alaska Packers Association’s Dime-A-Doe Canary. Three small children suffering from influenza came to the beach and reported that two men were dead on the boat. The bodies were given burials and the children taken to the Alaska Packers Association’s Naknek hospital where they recovered and the boat was towed to the canneries.TOWNSEND: Tim, I wanted to ask about the involvement of the canneries. How dd they help in this tragedy?TROLL: Commercial fishing in Brostol Bay had already been going on for about 40 years so it was an entrenched industry. And a cannery was like a small town and every spring they’d load up the boats from Seattle, Bellingham, San Francisco and come north. And typically along with that would be doctors and nurses, basically to serve the cannery workers but also the local Natives and the villages that were around. So when they arrived in May of 1919, the flu was already there. The fear is that it would come in with them, but unfortunately, it was already there. And the only government presence that was there at the time was the hospital at Kanakanak, now Dillingham. But they were dealing with the problem themselves. They couldn’t respond any better. Dr. French himself was sick with the flu; the nurses were sick with the flu. And despite pleas to help, they really couldn’t so the cannery, in this case the Alaska Packers Association, which was the dominant canning outfit in Bristol Bay at the time, they were really logistically capable of dealing with it. And to their credit they did.RINGSMUTH: And one of the projects that I’m working on with Bob King and the National Park Service is to try and list the hospital at Naknek on the National Register of Historic Places as a building that can tell this story.

Xbox One sales target was originally set at 200 million consoles

first_imgThe Xbox One S we see on store shelves today is a very different console to the one envisioned being hooked up in homes back in 2014. Who remembers Don Mattrick? He’s the guy that decided all Xbox One games would only play if you were connected to the Internet for DRM checks. he’s also the guy that made Kinect mandatory, and said if you didn’t have an Internet connection the Xbox 360 would remain on sale as an alternative.Mattrick is now long gone and Phil Spencer was left to pick up the pieces of that dismal launch period. Spencer is doing a pretty good job considering, and he’s now revealed another eye-opening fact about the Xbox team’s original intent for the new console. Mattrick set the sales bar incredibly high for sales. He wanted them to aim for 200 million units.No games console has ever sold 200 million units. Top of the list right now is the PlayStation 2, which achieved 155 million. After that you have handhelds, with the Nintendo DS reaching 154 million and the Game Boy/Game Boy Color combined achieving 118 million sales. The Xbox 360 managed 84 million units. But Mattrick wanted more, much more.You have to remember that the Xbox One wasn’t being treated as just a games console at launch. Mattrick positioned it to be the hub under your TV and as much an all-round entertainment box as a games-playing machine. It really didn’t work, but the lofty 200 million sales target must have been based off of the console appealing to a much wider audience than just gamers.What we are left with 2 years on from the launch is an Xbox console Microsoft has long since stopped sharing sales figures for. Last we heard it has sold 19 million units in January of this year–half of what the PS4 had achieved. It’s clear now that the Xbox One will struggle to hit even 50 million units let alone 200 million.last_img read more
