Gill leads 1-2 finish for MRF Tyres in New Zealand

first_imgWhangarei (New Zealand), Apr 30 (PTI) Indias Gaurav Gill of Team MRF Tyres turned back a 33-second deficit to win the International Rally of Whangarei, the first round of FIA Asia Pacific Rally Championship, here today. Overnight leader and team-mate Ole Christian Veiby, who eventually finished second behind Gill, led by 23 seconds at the half-way mark today after first loop of three Special Stages. But he suffered brake failure on his Skoda Fabia R5 in the very first Stage after service which cost him one minute, 22.6 seconds. The 20-year old Norwegian was then docked a penalty of one minute, 30 seconds for reporting nine minutes late to the start of the next Stage which effectively ruined his chances of scoring a win in his maiden APRC appearance. Reigning champion Gill (co-driver Stephane Prevot), also in a Race Torque-prepared Skoda Fabia R5, seized the chance and cruised home sparing two minutes, 02.8 seconds to Veiby. In the process, Gill notched his third New Zealand crown and seventh APRC win in a row, following his clean sweep of six last year when he took his second championship title. “I used tyres with different grooving which again helped me to up my pace after we had sorted out the damper issue overnight that had cost me time yesterday,” Gill said. Provisional classification (after Leg-2): APRC: 1. Gaurav Gill / Stephane Prevot (Team MRF Tyres, Skoda Fabia R5) (02hrs, 35mins, 06.8secs); 2. Ole Christian Veiby / Stig Rune Skjærmoen (Team MRF Tyres, Skoda Fabia R5) (02:37:09.6); 3. Roberter Blomberg / Lars Andersson (Mpart Sport, Mitsubishi Mirage) (02:52:52.3).

Singapore Port First in the World to Use MFM System for …

first_imgzoom The Port of Singapore is the first in the world to mandate the use of mass flow metering (MFM) system for bunkering.This was announced by Mr Lui Tuck Yew, Minister for Transport, at the Singapore Bunkering Symposium today. The bunkering symposium is one of the key events of the Singapore Maritime Week 2014, jointly organised by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and the National Metrology Centre of A*STAR.In his opening address, Minister Lui said that as the first port in the world to mandate the use of mass flow meters for bunkering, “we will set a new benchmark for bunkering practices worldwide“.He highlighted that the use of MFM system for bunkering in the Port of Singapore will not only enhance transparency in the bunkering process, but also improve operational efficiency and increase the productivity of the entire industry.MPA Chief Executive, Mr Andrew Tan said, “To safeguard Singapore’s reputation as a top bunkering port in the world, we are taking the lead in being the first to mandate the use of mass flow meters. It is a significant milestone for the bunkering industry in Singapore and it will strengthen our position in the long term as a reliable and trusted port for bunkering operations.”The MFM system enhances transparency, increases productivity and minimises illegal bunkering activities. MPA is confident that the adoption of MFM system for bunkering in the Port of Singapore will provide better assurance to both the bunker buyers and suppliers on the quantity of bunker delivered, and safeguard Singapore’s reputation as the world’s top bunkering port.Implementation of MFM system:With effect from 1 January 2017, it is mandatory for bunker suppliers to use the MFM system for bunker delivery of Marine Fuel Oil (MFO) in the Port of Singapore. All existing bunker tankers operating in port must be fitted with a MPA-approved MFM system for MFO delivery in the Port of Singapore by 31 December 2016.All new bunker tankers applying for Harbour Craft (Bunker Tanker) licence after 31 December 2014 will be required to be fitted with a MPA – approved MFM system for MFO delivery.Incentive scheme to assist the industry:To assist the industry to offset a portion of the cost of the MFM system adoption, MPA will be offering a lump sum incentive of S$80,000 for each existing bunker tanker delivering MFO in the Port of Singapore. The incentive will be given out upon MPA’s approval of each fitted MFM system.Partnerships:To ensure that the MFM system is suitable to be used for bunkering, MPA and SPRING Singapore jointly initiated a MFM Working Group to develop and validate the use of MFM system for bunkering in 2009. The Working Group, which consists of members from Weights and Measures Office (WMO) of SPRING Singapore, National Metrology Centre @A*Star (NMC), MPA and various stakeholders in the bunkering industry, had conducted extensive trials using MFM system since 2011.MPA has undertaken close consultation with the industry through the Singapore Shipping Association and the International Bunker Industry Association in implementing the mandatory MFM, and many of its members are supportive.In conjunction with this symposium, the NMC announced the opening of its Liquid Flow Laboratory to conduct further R&D in high viscosity fluids and signed a research collaboration agreement with Mogas Flow Lab Pte Ltd on the establishment of a primary mass flow standard and facilities for mass flow measurement of marine fuel oil.Bunkering remains an important sector of the Singapore maritime industry. In 2013, the Port of Singapore recorded bunker sales volume of 42.7 million tonnes, retaining its position as the world’s top bunkering port. mpa, April 8, 2014last_img read more

Stena Line Upgrades Coverage on Baltic Routes

first_imgzoom Swedish ferry operator Stena Line plans to upgrade its services in Central Europe and Scandinavia by implementing a more frequent ferry timetable and introducing an additional ship due to the rapidly increasing demand for the ferry transport. The company intends to focus on Northern Baltic Sea region development, aiming at strengthening its market position in the Baltic Sea with two main routes to Sweden and Germany, according to Erik Thulin, Stena Line’s Trade Director Baltic Sea North.Stena Line said that Ventspils in Latvia will be positioned as the gateway to Scandinavia, thus reinforcing the route Ventspils-Nynäshamn. The ferry Stena Flavia will be permanently redirected to this route, while previously it also operated between Ventspils and German Travemünde. Stena Flavia will operate the route together with Scottish Viking and the number of ferry departures will be increased by 30%, according to the company. Starting from January 3, 2017, 24 crossings per week will be available on this route instead of the usual 18 weekly crossings.The ferry crossing from Ventspils to Travemünde will be redirected to Liepaja, Latvia. In turn, Liepaja will be the main port connecting Latvia to the western part of Central Europe. An additional ferry will be introduced to this route to Germany, increasing the number of crossings by 25%, Stena Line said.Starting from January 3, 2017, the route, to be operated by Urd and Stena Nordica, will provide eight crossings per week. The company said that Stena Nordica will be taken into operation during spring and until then Stena Gothica, operating Göteborg-Frederikshavn, will be a relief ship. The ferry crossing from Liepaja to Swedish Nynäshamn will be transferred to Ventspils.“The changes in ferry routes and schedules constitute a strategically important step in order to develop and reinforce two large and significant transportation corridors – from Ventspils to Scandinavia and from Liepaja to Central Europe,” Erik Thulin said.last_img read more

The absolute worst things about having girl hair

You don’t know our pain.It takes ages.  It takes ages.  And that’s even if you’re not doing any kind of fancy drying with multiple round brushes.Some lucky people are able to just let their hair dry naturally but for others, this is texturally impractical… also if you let it dry in the winter you’ll freeze.Product Source: goMainstreamMost girls need to use some sort of product in order to be happy with their hair, and guess what?  This product costs money!Also, most people need to try lots of different things before they find what they actually want resulting in lots and lots of waste and lots and lots of bottles taking up space in your bathroom or other storage area.

Over 90 say pensions dashboard could help them save for retirement

first_imgNine out of 10 parents believe that an online service showing all of their pensions savings would help them to save more for their retirement, according to research by Mumsnet, the parents network, on behalf of the Association of British Insurers (ABI) and the Pensions Dashboard Project.The survey of 1,206 parents also found that 96% of respondents believe an online service would be important in helping them know what they had saved, as well as giving them a forecast on how much they would have to live on in retirement.Additionally, 70% of respondents, who have had at least one period of employment in their lives, said that they have either lost track of their pensions, or are aware of where these are but not what they are worth.Just under two-thirds (64%) of parents are worried about not having enough money in retirement.Yvonne Braun (pictured), director of long-term savings and protection policy at the ABI, said: “Despite the success of automatic-enrolment, it is widely recognised that most people are not saving enough to meet their expectations of retirement. It is encouraging that so many Mumsnet users say having access to all their pension information online would help them take action to save more.“Now that so many people are comfortable using a range of online financial services, it’s an obvious next step to bring together all the information from all the different pension schemes people have over a lifetime so they can get an overview as they head towards retirement. “Justine Roberts, founder and chief executive officer of Mumsnet, said: “We know that parents, and mothers in particular, are more likely to have gaps when they’re not able to save into a pension. This makes it even more important they have some easy way to see how their retirement is shaping up, whether they’ll have enough money to live on, and what they can do about it.“An online tool to bring all this information together should be regarded as a basic necessity and the necessary steps taken by government, regulators and all parts of the pensions industry to make it a reality.”last_img read more

How Readers Respond When a Magazine Goes DigitalOnly

first_imgWhile the forum for non-paying readers hasn’t provoked much response, the subscriber forum is blowing up. True to form, it’s primarily the people who have a problem with the decision who are posting (one reader also set up his own LinkedIn poll saying, “Maybe if the LJ staff sees a graph of their reader’s opinions they will realize how wrong they are”). Still, these posts can give other publishers a sense of what they might be facing if they’re considering a digital-only jump (and what they may need to do to make it palatable for their audience). Even a tech readership like LJ‘s seems reluctant to give up its print. “I don’t have much to say other then I am completely disappointed with the decision to go all digital,” posts one reader. “Just because we’re techheads, doesn’t mean we all walk around with friggin ipads or iphones and read pdfs on the crapper.”Others rebel against the price of a digital subscription. “This is ridiculous, why would I want to pay $30 for a digital subscription,” writes another reader. “I can already view practically all the issues online (all but the last 2). So why would I want to pay to get some silly pdf file which will likely still be full of ads. Frustrate customer, will not be renewing without print.P.S. HOW is this a benefit of digital over a physical magazine? ‘Off-line reading: you can download one article or the entire magazine and conveniently take with you. You also can print any pages you want.’ I can take my whole magazine with me as it is, no need to download anything.”Much of the frustration comes from the current digital format. “PDF has never been a proper digital format for delivering the magazine. . .” writes one reader. “’Enhanced Digital Edition’? An even worse insult to a paying customer. It’s like all the similar bad imitations of print magazines being tried on people in the last 10 years. . . A dedicated app? Yeah right, just what I need. Another app that tries to replicate something that can be achieved without one. . .Just give us a proper ePub version already. I for one do not want an imitation of a paper product. I want something done in a format meant for the eReader / iPad it’s going to be read on. In the FAQ you mention more features in the future like interactivity and video. These are things that can be accommodated by a format such as ePub and it can be used by the users in their favorite reader / management apps. It is a format specifically meant for this purpose. Bottom line. PDF or ‘EDE’ are not options. It’s either ePub* or I’ll walk.”Another is a big fan of the content, but not the format: “While the articles in Linux Journal are excellent, and well worth the subscription prices, the total conversion to ‘digital media’ negates the worth of the magazine (to me) to the point where the publisher would have to pay me to read it in a digital media format. I paid for a hardcopy magazine, and will not accept a digital-only version.”However, others are welcoming LJ‘s jump to 100 percent digital:”I for one applaud your decision to go digital,” writes a reader. “Where is it written that we must have books and magazines on paper? Time for a change, and I believe this is a change for the better — less wasteful, easy to search, active links to resources, bookmarks, etc. And as our digital technology advances, it’s only going to get better yet. Your Enhanced Digital Edition looks great! And the pdf, too. It would be nice to have in epub format as well. Keep up the good work!”Linux Journal seems to have a passionate audience that’s heavily invested in its content. Going forward, the publication’s success will depend not just on going 100 percent digital but offering a digital version that works. Just as some consumer publishers had to learn that a successful iPad app in these early days is more about quick downloads and easy navigation than self-indulgent design and spasm-inducing rich media, b-to-b publishers have to understand that good content won’t excuse a bad reading experience for most readers. The number of magazines folding or going digital-only just within the last 72 hours has us flashing back to 2009. Linux Journal–which launched in 1994 serving the Linux computing market–is yet another publication whose August 2011 issue will be its last in print. “The big computer-industry trade magazines from the ’90s have either disappeared or gone digital,” writes senior editor Doc Searls in a note to readers. “Of the big three publishers, only IDG is still intact, but relatively few of its old magazines are still in print [EDIT NOTE: IDG is quick to point out that in the U.S., only InfoWorld went digital-only, while Computerworld, CIO, Network World, PC World and Macworld remain in print]. We survived while others failed by getting lean and staying focused. But the costs of printing and distributing continue to go up. We could keep publishing in print if we could raise the number of advertiser pages, but we don’t see that happening. What we do see is a core readership that has stuck with us, along with Linux, for a generation. You, our readers, are at the heart of Linux, and always have been. We want to keep that heart beating.”Beginning with its September issue (#209), all subscribers will be offered the Linux Journal Digital Edition, which features a PDF version delivered via e-mail. Linux Journal also says it will have custom iPhone, iPad and Android apps ready by September. To its credit, Linux Journal is making the discussion around its new strategy public by setting up forums for subscribers and non-paying readers.last_img read more

Rohingyas turning lost generation

first_imgRohingya refugees make their way to a refugee camp after crossing the Bangladesh-Myanmar border in Palong Khali, near Cox`s Bazar. ReutersA humanitarian organisation has warned of a “lost generation” with more than 500,000 Rohingya refugee children in Bangladesh unlikely to receive schooling in 2018.Al Jazeera quoted the International Rescue Committee (IRC) as saying that unless interventions are “urgently funded”, the humanitarian needs of children will only increase.”Education in emergencies is a life-saving and life-changing intervention – helping children recover and cope with the continuing adversity they face,” Sarah Smith, the IRC’s senior director for education, was quoted to have said on Friday.”This is incredibly urgent for Rohingya children; no one is paying attention to their needs, and they face some of the highest levels of trauma the IRC has ever seen.”Until children’s rights to education in the Rohingya crisis are realised, we face the threat of a lost generation of what is already one of the world’s most vulnerable populations.”Less than two per cent of humanitarian funding goes towards education, the most underfunded sector in response to the Rohingya plight, Al Jazeera quoted the IRC as said.Evan Schuurman, part of the Save the Children’s emergency response team in Cox’s Bazar, reportedly said in October that schooling was particularly important for traumatised refugee children.”School isn’t just about learning,” he reportedly wrote in a piece published by Al Jazeera. “It provides routine and a sense of normality, a place where children can make friends, play and remember what it’s like to be children.”It’s also a critical form of protection from exploitation and abuse, such as trafficking.”According to the Oxford Burma Alliance, a student-run organisation at Oxford University, more than 60 per cent of Rohingya children between the ages of five and 17 have never been to school due to poverty, government restrictions on their movement, and a lack of schools in Rakhine State, Myanmar, Al Jazeera reported.More than 620,000 Rohingya have reportedly fled to neighbouring Bangladesh since August 25 in fear of abuses by Myanmarese soldiers, which the United States and UN described as “ethnic cleansing”.The ongoing crisis has been described as the biggest forced exodus of 2017.Bangladesh and Myanmar signed a deal last month for the return of hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees, but little is known of its details, Al Jazeera added.last_img
