Khalifa Port Set to Handle Capesize Ships under EGA Deal

first_imgzoom Port developer and operator Abu Dhabi Ports is to welcome some of the world’s largest bulk carriers as part of a long-term port facility deal signed with UAE-based industrial company Emirates Global Aluminium.Under the agreement, EGA would use Capesize vessels to import bauxite from the Republic of Guinea in West Africa for Al Taweelah alumina refinery through Khalifa Port. The parties informed that, with this deal, Abu Dhabi Ports would be able to develop the port to become the first in the Gulf capable of directly handling these massive ships.Abu Dhabi Ports will fund and complete dredging and widening works to the Khalifa Port approach channel and basin including EGA’s berth. The dredging will deepen the channel to 18.5 metres and basin to 18 metres basis zero tide.EGA plans to use large dry bulk ships to import raw materials without the need to transfer all or some of the cargo to smaller vessels outside the port, reducing long-term shipping costs and improving environmental performance.The development at Khalifa Port is expected to lead to larger ships calling in to Abu Dhabi, boosting the Emirate’s position as a global maritime trade hub.EGA is currently constructing UAE’s first alumina refinery next to its aluminium smelter in Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi, located adjacent to Khalifa Port. Upon achieving full-production, the Al Taweelah alumina refinery will process five million tonnes of bauxite per annum.“Khalifa Port will be the first port in the region with capsize vessel handling capacity, and with EGA’s long term commitment, will give an important boost to trade and investment in KIZAD and more broadly in the region,” Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, Chief Executive Officer of Abu Dhabi Ports, said.Bauxite ore from Guinea will be transported to Abu Dhabi via the global shipping firm Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line), under a separate agreement with EGA. One of the vessels K Line will use for this service was named Cape Taweelah in a ceremony held earlier this year.last_img read more

PM responds to allegations against Kent Hehr

first_imgThe Prime Minister is responding to new allegations against his Minister for Sport, Calgary-Centre MP Kent Hehr.Following the allegations against Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown, at least two women stepped forward on Twitter and spoke about Minister Hehr and his time serving in the Alberta Legislature. One claims women felt unsafe to get in an elevator with him due to inappropriate comments, another claims a similar problem, alleging Hehr once said to her, “you’re yummy.”My poltical #metoo movement @kinsellawarren . I’ve debated this. But that’s the power of sexual harassment. My first day working at the Alberta legislature I was told to avoid being in a elevator with Kent Hehr. He would make comments. He would make you feel unsafe— Kristin Raworth (@JC4ever) January 25, 2018None of these allegations against Hehr have been proven but when asked about it in Davos, Switzerland during the World Economic Forum, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he has been unequivocal in his support for women who step forward with allegations like this.“I haven’t yet had the opportunity to speak directly with Kent, I will in the coming hours and we will have more to say before the plane lifts off tonight,” he said.This is not the first time Hehr has faced controversy over comments. He was alleged to have said to a group of thalidomide victims “we all have sob stories”, and in another incident when asked about why Ottawa continues to fight sick women, Hehr allegedly responded saying that it was a “loaded question” like “When did you stop beating your wife?”last_img read more

More talk than action on increasing caribou protection federal report

first_imgEnvironment Canada says that despite lots of talk on preserving caribou habitat little has been done.A report from the agency says not much has changed since a survey in April found significant gaps in protecting the threatened species from coast to coast.The report does list dozens of ongoing negotiations, draft plans and provincial promises to restore caribou populations to sustainable levels.But it concludes problems first outlined nine months ago persist.Chief among those is that provincial agencies that license development on caribou habitat aren’t required to follow federal environmental laws.Environmental groups say that sooner or later federal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna will have to step in with emergency protection orders for some of the vanishing herds.They also say the report shows few new areas to protect caribou have been created.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Alberta rail plan results from oil curtailment plan mistakes Husky execs say

first_imgCALGARY, A.B. – The Alberta government’s decision to spend $3.7 billion to move more crude by rail was made necessary by its poorly considered move to impose production curtailments, executives with Husky Energy Inc. charged on Tuesday.The Calgary-based company, which has opposed curtailments as an unwelcome interference in the market, raised its level of criticism on a conference call to discuss its fourth-quarter results.Husky maintains that its integrated upstream and downstream operations and pipeline contracts had allowed it to continue to make profits even when discounts on western Canadian crude reached record levels last November. “In February and March … the province has said the curtailment is being reduced, but our quota went down,” he said. “So our curtailment went up when the provincial number went down. That’s why I’m a little confused as to how the math works.”He wouldn’t give Husky’s actual quota number but said the company has shut in some conventional heavy oil wells that will likely be too badly damaged to be started up again when curtailment ends.Shares in Husky Energy Inc. fell Tuesday after it reported fourth-quarter net income that missed expectations.Its results were hit by suspended production following an oil spill at its White Rose oilfield off the coast of St. John’s, N.L., a longer-than-expected maintenance shutdown at its refinery in Lima, Ohio, and lower oil prices. “For Husky, it’s absolutely a net negative because we were completely capturing the full value of the value chain prior to curtailment and all that’s happened is we’re producing less barrels now,” said CEO Rob Peabody.The province imposed production quotas as of Jan. 1 on larger producers designed to keep 325,000 barrels per day of crude off the market, supporting prices by opening space on full export pipelines and drawing down overflowing storage.Discounts quickly evaporated, leading to criticism from companies with refining and retail assets like Suncor Energy Inc. and Imperial Oil Ltd. _ who had opposed the production cuts _ that crude-by-rail was no longer profitable.Curtailment supporter Cenovus Energy Inc., however, said it would increase its crude-by-rail shipments as economics would likely improve over time.The province announced last month it would increase production quotas in February and March by 75,000 bpd due to declining storage levels.But Husky chief operating officer Rob Symonds said on the call Husky is actually being hit harder now than it was in January.center_img The Calgary-based company’s stock fell by as much as seven percent on the Toronto Stock Exchange to $14.86 in early afternoon trading.The company reported $216 million in net earnings in the last three months of 2018, versus analyst expectations of $257 million, according to Thomson Reuters Eikon.That compared with a profit of $672 million in the same quarter a year earlier.Production averaged 304,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, down from 320,000 boe/d a year earlier.It expects output this year to average 290,000 to 305,000 boe/d, including oil curtailments and the loss of production from White Rose through at least the first quarter.last_img read more

Superwalk raises money awareness

Ball thought he’d had a heart attack in late 2008 when he lost use of the left side of his body.But after tests showed his heart was healthy, it only took a neurologist a couple minutes to make a diagnosis.“He said the good news is that you don’t have MS or cancer but you do have Parkinson’s. I didn’t know what it was. All I knew is that it was the Michael J. Fox shaky disease. I got smart in a hurry.”Ball and his family were among a small group of participants on Saturday at the Parkinson Canada Superwalk in Port Dover. There was also a fundraiser held Saturday at Brantford’s Mohawk Park.More than 4,000 registered walkers raised $2.25 million across Canada last year.Ball was leading Mitten Inc., makers of vinyl siding and other products, until 2012 when he was forced to leave the business because of his deteriorating health.“With Parkinson’s the more stress you put on yourself, the worse it gets. I had been travelling all over the world and I couldn’t do that anymore.“Everything hurts all the time. It takes twice the energy to do anything I used to do.” jpg, SR Gary Ball is surrounded by his family, including daughter Alyson Lindsay (left), grandsons Holden Lindsay and Jonas Lindsay and wife Mary Ellen Ball, at a fundraising walk for Parkinson’s held on Saturday at Powell Park in Port Dover. Ball was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2008. Michelle Ruby/Brantford Expositor Cathy Boose of Port Dover, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease two years ago, participated on Saturday in the Parkinson Canada Superwalk in Powell Park. Michelle Ruby/Brantford Expositor PORT DOVER – Gary Ball was the president and CEO of a thriving Brantford company overseeing hundreds of employees when Parkinson’s disease changed his life. jpg, SR Parkinson’s is a neurodegenerative disease. Movement is normally controlled by dopamine, a chemical that carries signals between the nerves in the brain. When cells that normally produce dopamine die, the symptoms of Parkinson’s appear.The most common symptoms are tremors, slowness and stiffness, impaired balance, and rigidity of the muscles. Also common are fatigue, soft speech, problems with handwriting, stooped posture, constipation, and sleep disturbances.Ball, who now lives in Port Dover, takes Levodopa (also called L-dopa) to help ease his stiff, rigid body parts.“I’m one of the lucky ones,” he said. “Without it, I couldn’t walk.”Cathy Boose was experiencing hand tremors and muscle weakness when she was diagnosed with Parkinson’s two years ago.The retired registered nurse who lives in Port Dover said she’s been able to control her symptoms with regular exercise and medication. Still, she says she has to fight through the fatigue “brain fog” brought on by the disease.“I go along and try to have a good attitude,” she said at Saturday’s fundraiser.Paul Scibetta, community development co-ordinator for Parkinson Canada in southwestern Ontario, said money raised by the kid- and dog-friendly walks goes toward Parkinson’s research, programs and services, printed educational material, and providing doctor and resource referrals to those living with the disease.Scibetta said one of the biggest obstacles facing people is the long wait time – up to 18 months – to see a specialist.Parkinson’s is the fastest-growing neurological condition in the world, prompting researchers to call it a pandemic. About 100,000 Canadians have it. Global prevalence of Parkinson’s is expected to double by 2040 from six million to 12 million.Ball’s wife Mary Ellen, daughter Alyson Lindsay, and grandsons Jonas Lindsay, 12, and nine-year-old Holden Lindsay were at Saturday’s walk to offer support.“I’ve seen first-hand what he goes through,” said Lindsay of her dad. “I watch him struggle every day. This is a man who had a business with 500 employees and was very hands on. He did everything for us. Now he sometimes can’t get out of bed, can’t put his shoes on. It’s a real eye-opener.”Ball, who used to organize fundraising walks in Brantford, said he raises money and participates in the events to help others.“I just don’t want anyone else to get it.” read more

Football Wayne Davis announces transfer from Ohio State

Redshirt sophomore safety Wayne Davis announced his intentions to transfer from Ohio State to continue his collegiate career elsewhere via Twitter on Thursday.New Chapter #GodsPlan— Wayne Davis Jr (@Waynedavis1_) May 10, 2018Davis had three years of eligibility remaining, but did not see meaningful time at Ohio State, and looked to be remaining on the sidelines for the upcoming season.A consensus four-star recruit out of high school, Davis redshirted the 2016 season, but appeared in only two games for a total of 10 snaps last season. He was listed as the 335th prospect in the 2016 class, the 33rd cornerback and No. 7 prospect in the state of Virginia, according to 247Sports composite rankings.Following Davis’ transfer, Ohio State is now down to 85 scholarships, the mandated number the NCAA requires from any college team.Davis was unlikely to see playing time given the depth of safeties at Ohio State. Junior safety Jordan Fuller, who has already been announced as a probable starter, will likely be paired up with either sophomore Isaiah Pryor, sophomore Brendan White or redshirt sophomore Jahsen Wint for the 2018 season. read more

Semplici Donnarumma made the difference

first_imgLeonardo Semplici maintains SPAL could have mustered a point from the Milan game but for the brilliance of goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.The Spallini had taken the lead through Andrea Petagna, but Milan were too strong for them as they overturned the deficit to win 2-1 thanks to Samu Castillejo and Gonzalo Higuain“We played the game we needed to. Milan were in good shape and their strikers, including Suso, would shift the balance to cause us problems,” the Coach told Football Italia.Semplici warns SPAL as they play Atalanta tonight Manuel R. Medina – August 25, 2019 The SPAL manager, Leonardo Semplici, believes their rival tonight is “one of the strongest sides in Italy as they begging their 2019-2020 campaign.“In the second half, we really deserved a point and Gianluigi Donnarumma rescued the result for Milan at the end.“It’s disappointing because not every team comes to San Siro and plays with this degree of confidence, so leaving with a defeat inevitably creates regrets.“We had found a tactical way to shut down Suso, whereas with 3-5-2 we had struggled with our positioning. Now we go into 2019 and must secure our place in Serie A because we’ve proved we are not just passing through.”last_img read more

Vancouver woman involved in fatal Oregon crash

first_imgA Vancouver woman was identified as the driver of a fatal crash that was discovered at least 12 hours later on the Oregon Coast. A hitchhiker along Highway 101 just north of Cannon Beach, Ore. heard cries for help and spotted a crashed car 40 feet down a heavily wooded embankment Sunday evening, according to Oregon State Police. Emergency crews were notified about 8:30 p.m., and responded to find Gabriela Rayon, 21, of Vancouver seriously injured and her passenger, Ruth A. Delgado, 23, of Los Angeles, deceased. Authorities said that Rayon was driving a 2004 Chevrolet four-door south on Highway 101 when for an unconfirmed reason the car left the roadway and went down an embankment. The passenger side of the car struck a tree and the vehicle then came to rest on the ground in heavy brush among the trees and was not visible from the roadway. The crash apparently occurred at least 12 hours prior to the hitchhiker spotting the car, according to state patrol. Rayon was taken to Columbia Memorial Hospital in Astoria but was later transferred to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland where she is listed in fair condition. Oregon State Patrol is continuing its investigation into the crash.last_img read more

What were the most popular Google searches in Costa Rica in 2013

first_imgRelated posts:The 10 most popular Tico Times stories of 2013 The 10 most popular items Ticos buy online Our most popular stories from last month (March ’14) Our most popular stories last month — April ’14 Searches for the current events topic Corea del Norte (“North Korea”) finished second. “Minions”, a type of character from the movie “Mi Villano Favorito 2” (“Despicable Me 2”), placed third. “Mi Villano Favorito 2” was the most Googled movie of 2013 in Costa Rica, just beating out Iron Man 3.Three stars who died premature deaths in 2013 also made the list. They were 31-year-old Glee star Cory Monteith (No. 4; drug overdose), 41-year-old Mexican soap opera actress Karla Álvarez (No. 6; respiratory failure) and 58-year-old Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez (No. 10; cancer). Monteith and the Harlem Shake (no. 8), a series of fleetingly amusing dance videos, finished in the top 10 of Costa Rica Google searches and global searches. (The global list was topped by South Africa’s first black president Nelson Mandela and movie star Paul Walker — two more personalities who died in 2013). The most popularGoogle trends of the year in Costa Rica showed an affection for viral videos and a morbid interest in celebrity deaths — just like the rest of the world. Trends are defined as searches that saw the biggest increase between 2012 and 2013. Google released the Tico trending topics in mid-December as part of its annual Zeitgeist charts. The viral hit El Pollito Pío (“The cheeping chicken”) topped the list here. It’s essentially an animated version of “Old McDonald Had a Farm” version with an uglier twist at the end. The tractor on the farm goes “bruum bruum” over the cheeping chicken. That example of not-so-sublime entertainment garnered more than 300 million views worldwide.  center_img The most popular How To search was “How to braid your hair” (perhaps inspired by the hero of the Hunger Games series). The list also featured “How to lose weight”, “How to learn English”, and “How to kiss”. There’s no shame in the last one, which also made the last of global “how to” searches. Everybody on the Internet wants to learn the secret to smooching.The “What is…” searches appeared more eclectic. Some seemed based in hypochondria, others were downright philosophical. Topping the list in Costa Rica was the question: “What is LOL?” – Internet shorthand for “laughing out loud”. Other searches asked “What is hemophilia?”, “What is lupus?”, “What is bullying?”, “What is sexuality?” and “What is democracy?”. Finishing sixth on the list was the very meta question, “What is the Internet?”Lea Michele, Monteith’s girlfriend and Glee co-star, was the most Googled musical act in Costa Rica. She finished just ahead of metal pioneers Black Sabbath (who toured Costa Rica in November) and Tica pop star Debi Nova.Facebook and YouTube led the list for most popular websites in Costa Rica.

Burkina Faso party of ousted president picks new candidate

first_img Comments   Share   “I will be the candidate of the youth, the elders, the women and all generations,” Comboigo said. “We are still the majority in this country.”At least 10 politicians have so far declared their candidacy for the October vote. A new electoral law says anyone who supported Compaore’s bid to stay in office can’t stand in the election, though the party has filed a complaint against transitional authorities over the code with a West African regional court.Addressing his supporters, Comboigo on Saturday also asked for prayers for peace in Burkina Faso, which the head of the transition said in a brief statement Friday night was on the brink of “chaos and disorder.”A chief source of tension is an ongoing dispute between transition officials and the elite Presidential Security Regiment, which has called for the resignation of the prime minister — a former second-in-command of the unit — and three ministers who are also soldiers.Michel Kafando, the transition president, said any “adventurers” looking to disrupt the transition process could face international courts.A new body that includes traditional and religious leaders has been set up to try to facilitate dialogue between military officials and leaders in the transitional government.

OUAGADOUGOU, Burkina Faso (AP) — Burkina Faso’s ruling party on Saturday nominated a former lawmaker as its presidential candidate in a vote scheduled for October, one year after a popular uprising forced longtime President Blaise Compaore to resign and flee the country.Eddie Comboigo, an accountant, accepted the nomination Saturday at a packed stadium in the capital, Ouagadougou. During his speech, he asked for a standing ovation for Compaore, whom he credited with having set Burkina Faso on a path to modernity during his 27 years in office despite widespread complaints about corruption and misrule.

Virgin partnership with Etihad prospers

first_imgImage Source: Herald Sun Virgin Australia has released a statement confirming it has bested Qantas in on-time performance for the Financial Year 2012, while its current alignment with Etihad is proving to be extremely successful. According to BITRE statistics published last week, Virgin Australia branded and group airlines tallied an on-time performance rate of 82.7 percent, exceeding Qantas brand airlines (81.2 percent) and Qantas group airlines (80.1 percent). Virgin Australia chief John Borghetti was pleased with these results and excited about Virgin’s current prosperity with partner airline, Etihad Airways. “We set ourselves a target of achieving certain goals within three years,” Mr Borghetti said. “We’ve just entered the third year and we’ve almost achieved all of them.” Virgin’s domestic business in Australia has doubled in recent years thanks to its partnership with airlines such as Singapore Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Etihad and Air New Zealand, according to the Courier Mail.”In fact, it’s almost trebled, so it’s been a very beneficial relationship, as have the other relationships we have,” Mr Borghetti said on ABC-TV’s Inside Business. Etihad recently increased its stake in Virgin Australia by 5 percent, following approval from the Foreign Investment Review Board, now totalling a 10 percent share. In June of this year, Qantas Airways chief Alan Joyce expressed fears Etihad’s growing stake in Australia would undercut profitability on domestic routes and may force the airline to reduce a number of its services. Mr Borghetti has dismissed the concerns. “There’s a lot of misinformation and a lot of jumping at shadows in the market and I think people should take a cold shower,” he said. “There is no massive capacity share grab here.” Etihad Airways chief executive James Hogan labelled Qantas’ attack on the Abu-Dhabi based carrier as “disappointing” and “not representative of the market or the country or the people.” Source = e-Travel Blackboard: P.Tlast_img read more
