Mammoet assists Dubai deck move

first_imgHLPFI reported on March 14 that SAL had loaded and shipped the luxury deck, which was manufactured by Admares in Rauma in six sections, ranging in weight from 415 to 740 tonnes. The consignment also included two bridge sections.Once the eight oversize units had arrived at Dubai’s Port Rashid, Mammoet discharged the cargo from the vessel and loaded the sections onto three barges for towage to the Burj Al Arab.The sections measured up to 79 m by 35 m, which resulted in an overhang on the barges of up to 25 m and required careful and precise handling of the tug boats, explained Mammoet.On arrival at the hotel site, the six large sections were installed on 90 foundation piles using a 2,000-tonne capacity sheerleg connected to a large crane barge. The barge was controlled using a dynamic positioning system, which Mammoet says ensured a precise installation operation.www.mammoet.comlast_img read more

Club and ball

first_imgTHE summer heat is scorching the asphalt, browning the greens and frying the skins. Yet it is during these times that a several sporting clinics are introduced to give aspiring athletes additional knowledge on their chosen sport and improve their skills. I’m sure there are also summer clinics for this particular discipline that traditionally caters to the affluent.I’m not well-versed, much less had played, this ancient sport that originated in Scotland in the early 1500s but I still am awed of the wide and well-maintained rolling terrain used as a playground where you can hear birds chirping during tournaments. Not everyone, in my own uninitiated opinion, can play this elitist sport.This is perhaps the only sport where we seldom, if never at all, see disgusting actions from players. We had witnessed all kinds of tantrums bordering on demonic possessions from football, basketball, hockey, baseball, tennis, motor sports, endurance sports, and even combat sports.We’re talking here of golf and why it is popular even among people who don’t play the game that they go to tournaments or watch the game on TV. If you don’t understand the game, it could bore you to death watching a player whack a ball as far as he can, go after it and then whack it some more until it sinks into a hole no more than 5 inches wide. Talking about holes, why does a standard golf course have 18 holes? I don’t know if this was the exact reason but let’s take it as it is. Sometime in 1858, members of the elite St. Andrews Club in Scotland were in a light discussion when one elder member pointed out that it takes exactly 18 shots to finish a bottle of Scotch. The Scottish gentleman figured that by limiting himself to one shot of Scotch per hole, a round of golf will be done when the Scotch ran out. As what we say in Bisaya, “Bunga sa kahubog.”Golf is a game for honorable ladies and gentlemen. The “honorable” in this case does not refer to politicians. Except for a few misguided golfers, almost all of the other sports have their regular contributions to court cases, arrests and jail time. Best of all, they don’t spit, throw coins, towels, shoes, bottles, chairs or people, at other people. And they keep their clothes on when interviewed.Professional golfers’ pay is directly proportional to the way they play. Pro athletes in major league sports get injured, don’t play for a year, yet they still get their millions. And golfers don’t hold out for more money because some other player has a bigger deal. When they make mistakes, they’re on their own – unlike the other pampered and overpaid athletes where they have some PR people to cover or back for them from their indiscretions.There’s no free agency in golf. In their prime, golfing greats Arnold Palmer and Greg Norman will happily shake fans’ hands and have a few words with them. A pro baseball player in his prime wore a T-shirt that says, “Leave Me Alone.” Have we ever seen our present basketball idols genuinely happy meeting and shaking a fan’s hand?There are no rule changes in golf to attract fans because golfers have to adapt to an entirely different playing field every tournament. Fans can watch golfers at any tournament within arms’ reach the whole day maybe from $50 to $75. A ticket to the Super Bowl that assigns you to a seat close to the flight path of an airline will cost somewhere between $500 to $2,000 from scalpers. And unless you have really deep pockets, you can easily spare at least a $10,000 courtside seat to the NBA Finals.Since we now know why golf has 18 holes, we better get to know where “caddie” came from. As a young girl, Mary Queen of Scots went to France to study. Louis King of France learned that she liked to play golf and had the first golf course built outside of Scotland for her to enjoy. For her protection while playing, Louis hired cadets from a military school to escort her.She liked this very much that Mary took the practice with her when she returned to Scotland. The French pronounced the word cadet as “ca-dey.” The Scots changed it to “caddie.”So, will I become a golfer? It’s a very remote possibility. I haven’t touched a golf club and the idea of playing with the high and the mighty scares me. My wallet is not thick enough to stop a .45-caliber bullet and besides, my skin is naturally burnt, so why broil it some more?/PNlast_img read more

Bus Berdaya Baterai Listrik Hantam Jalanan Swedia

first_imgbus berdaya baterai listrik buatan Scania. Sumber: scania.com Swedia, salah satu Negara di benua Eropa ini melakukan terobosan di dunia transportasi. Belum lama ini, produsen otomotif besar asal Swedia yang berspesialisasi memproduksi truk dan bus, Scania AB meluncurkan inovasi terbarunya yaitu bus dengan tenaga baterai listrik. Adapun tujuan mengeluarkan bus berdaya baterai listrik dari perusahaan berlogo griffin ini adalah untuk turut serta berpartisipasi dalam memberikan solusi untuk transportasi umum yang lebih ramah lingkungan. Terciptanya bus ini merupakan pengaplikasian dari ide Menteri Lingkungan Hidup Swedia, Karolina Skog.Kota Östersund, yang terletak di Swedia bagian Utara dipilih sebagai lokasi uji coba bus bertenaga baterai listrik bernama Scania Citywide LF ini. Lokasi ini dinilai strategis karena memiliki musim dingin dan musim panas yang hangat. Tiga bus yang diuji coba nantinya akan mulai beroperasi pada akhir 2017.“Uji coba ini merupakan tahap awal dalam pembangunan berkelanjutan dari bus berdaya baterai listrik ini,” kata Anna Carmo e Silva, selaku Kepala Scania Buses and Coaches. Scania baru-baru ini memasarkan bus berbahan bakar alternatif seperti biogas, bioethanol, biodiesel dan bus bertenaga campuran. “Dengan menambahkan bus berdaya baterai listrik ini, kami akan lebih fokus pada transportasi yang berkelanjutan dan mulai menjangkau bus khusus untuk beroperasi di dalam kota,” tambahnya. Untuk menunjang uji coba bus ini, Scania turut membangun 2 stasiun pengisian baterai baru di kedua ujung rute bus yang berjalan 14 km di jalurnya ini. Waktu yang dibutuhkan untuk mengisi baterai adalah 10 menit. Jika baterai dalam keadaan penuh, bus ini dapat berkelana selama 15 menit. Menurut rencana bis ini akan dioperasikan sebanyak 100 kali perjalanan dalam sehari.“Pengenalan bus berdaya baterai listrik ini benar-benar menarik,” kata Project Manager Anne Sörensson, Kota Östersund. “Mereka akan memberikan kontribusi untuk tujuan kami mencapai transportasi bebas-fosil pada tahun 2030,” tambahnya.Uji coba akan dilakukan berkat kerja sama yang dijalin dengan otoritas publik, termasuk Kota Östersund dan Otoritas Transportasi Umum Daerah Jämtland Härjedalen, dan pemasok energi yang dimiliki publik Jämtkraft. Bus-bus tersebut akan dioperasikan oleh Nettbuss, anak perusahaan dari Norwegian State Railways, yang merupakan operator bus terbesar kedua di negara-negara Nordic. Saat ini Scania memiliki beberapa bus berbahan bakar alternatif seperti biogas, bioetanol, biodiesel dan bis berdaya campuran. Di akhir 2019, Scania akan menambah lagi 3 bus listrik baterai untuk diujiShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedBus Listrik Untuk TransJakarta, Antara Harapan dan Realita30/11/2017In “Bus dalam kota”Bus Listrik di Singapura Meluncur Tahun Depan, Interiornya Mirip ‘Punya’ TransJakarta19/11/2019In “Bus dalam kota”BYD K9 – Inilah Bus Listrik untuk Koridor 13 TransJakarta21/03/2019In “Bus dalam kota”last_img read more

‘Fragile’ House Majority Crosses Party Lines

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska State House’s new bipartisan majority is made up of just 22 members, including three Republicans. The group will need to vote closely together to pass any bills this session, with 21 votes required for a simple majority. Rep. Kito(D-Juneau): “Numerically it appears to be fragile, but we have strong conviction on trying to resolve our fiscal situation and that’s a very strong bond, even though it’s a small majority, our majorities stay together. I don’t see any strong motivation for people to go into a Republican-led majority, unless they had some kind of a commitment to resolve the fiscal situation, and I haven’t been hearing that.”center_img Juneau Democratic Representative Sam Kito will chair the House Labor & Commerce Committee and Legislative Council.

North Fork Fire Ready Evacuation Notice Lifted

first_imgFire crews have been able to maintain their dozer line around the North Fork Fire even as heavy winds pushed through the Homer area throughout the week. The fire remains at 59 acres as of Friday afternoon. Public Information Officer Sarah Saarloos from the Alaska Division of Forestry: “The fire is currently 75% contained, we’ve got 44 firefighters working hard to keep that contained. The goal is to reach 100% containment, and it’s remained at 59 acres for 4-5 days now.”  FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Original Post 10:00am: As of 10:00am, Friday morning, the Level 1 “Ready” evacuation notice was lifted for residents living along North Fork Road, north of the fire and in communities along the Diamond Ridge Road to the south. A low-pressure trough approaching from the north will bring little precipitation to the fires but gusty and erratic winds will again challenge containment lines. Firefighters will continue to hold the lines they have constructed and improve their perimeters, according to Saarloos. Saarloos: “We’ve been able to mop up about 75 feet in, and what that means is removing any heat along the fire perimeter. They are still finding some interior heat, that is the priority today is to seek out and destroy any heat in the core of the North Fork Fire.”  Water tenders from Anchor Point Fire and Homer Volunteer Fire departments are assisting Alaska’s Yukon Type 2 Initial Attack Crew and Washington’s Zigzag Hotshots. Continued updates will be posted as they are made available.last_img read more
