Sovcomflot NYK Line Ink Loan to Refinance LNG Carrier Duo

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: Sovcomflot Joint venture companies belonging to Sovcomflot and NYK Line have signed a new USD 176 million non-recourse credit facility to refinance two ice-class LNG carriers.The vessels in question are the Grand Aniva and sister ship Grand Elena, servicing the Sakhalin-2 project. The 145,000 cbm units are jointly owned and operated by SCF Group and NYK Line.The loan was signed for eight years with three international banks, namely Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation of Japan (through its German subsidiary, SMBC Bank EU AG); Société Générale of France, and Shinsei Bank of Japan.With this financing facility, SCF Group said that it is pioneering the adoption of provisions that enable lenders to comply with the Poseidon Principles, an environmental initiative by international banks that promotes a low carbon future for the global shipping industry by establishing a framework for assessing and disclosing the climate change impact of ship finance portfolios.Grand Aniva and Grand Elena, built in 2008 and 2007, transport LNG year-round from the port of Prigorodnoye on Sakhalin Island to Japan, South Korea and China under long-term contracts with Sakhalin Energy, the operator of Sakhalin-2 project.Since LNG shipments began from Sakhalin-2 in March 2009, the two carriers have completed 325 voyages, delivering over 46.5 million cubic metres of LNG.last_img read more

Make Google look like Facebook

first_imgWhen Google+ launched recently, the company coyly denied it was intended to compete with Facebook. Whether or not that was the intention, it’s clear that there’s more than a little similarity between the two. And when you install a newly-created Stylish theme in your browser, things get even more homogeneous.The creation of Fabio Giolito, the facelift puts an amazingly Facebookish look on Google’s circular social networking platform. One has to wonder whether Mark Zuckerberg — who has already received an invite and posted a profile — will slap the skin on so that he can explore the competition’s offering with a more familiar and comfortable UX.I’ve seen loads of web page mods like this over the years, but Giolito’s conversion is incredibly well done. The resemblance to Facebook is uncanny, and really about all that’s missing are the annoying suggestions and advertisements. Oh, and the complete lack of social gaming updates from friends is nice, too, though Google has just announced that an API is coming and that gaming companies are going to be getting on board.Of course, one of the features people seem to like most about Google+ is that it’s not Facebook. For irony lovers, however, this delicious little script is simply too good to pass up. You do have to wonder if either Google or Facebook will try and stop such themese, though. Neither service wants users changing it to look like the other rather than using the intended interface, but at the same time should they really complain as long as people are using their service rather than a rivals?You can grab the Google +: Facebook theme at Usersyles.org.More at Techcrunchlast_img read more

Weather Service Worst flooding over but rain to continue

first_imgFlooding conditions have passed, but rain will likely continue into the evening, according to the National Weather Service.Heavy rain has prompted the agency to issue another flood advisory for this morning, which was in effect from 6 to 7:45 a.m. But the heavy downpours that caused flooding last night are over, said Andy Bryant, a hydrologist.“We don’t believe we’re going to have any more flooding issues,” Bryant said. “The flooding was more of an immediate response to heavy rain last evening. It was very localized street flooding.”Rainy conditions should continue this morning with showers into the afternoon. Another storm will enter the area Friday, causing rainy conditions through most of the daylight hours, he said.“We’re not expecting any huge accumulations,” Bryant said.Rain gauges indicated that 2 to 3 inches had fallen this morning since 2 a.m. in the Hockinson and Larch Mountain area of Clark County. The weather service said the excessive water from earlier will work its way through creeks and drainage. Drainage areas that could still have flooding issues include Fifth Plain Creek, Shanghai Creek, Salmon Creek and Lacamas Creek.The wet weather slowed traffic during the morning commute, with backups on I-5, but no major traffic accidents were reported. Only 3 accidents were reported during rush hour this morning.Motorists are advised not to drive vehicles into areas where the water covers the roadway as water depths may be too great to allow safe crossing. Rainy conditions look to continue into Saturday, with clearing on Sunday. Next week into Independence Day looks to be clear, with temperatures in the mid to upper 70s, Bryant said.last_img read more

Amitabh Bachchan asking Shah Rukh Khan for bonus for Badla is basically

first_imgAmitabh Bachchan in Badla.TwitterBollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan has continued his playful rant on Twitter with superstar Shah Rukh Khan. After demanding acknowledgement for the “silent success of Badla” and a party for the film, Amitabh Bachchan has now asked SRK for a bonus! he also took a dig at Shah Rukh, calling him ‘Raja Dhiraaj’ (his nickname King Khan).Amitabh Bachchan in his fluent Hindi said on Twitter, “मान्यवर , राजा धीरज ( KING KHAN ) ,,, सुनने में आया है की “बदला” फ़िल्म आपके फ़िल्मी career की , सबसे बड़ी hit फ़िल्म है ; । तो भाई साहेब , company में जब सफलता मिलती है, या जब कोई अच्छा काम करता है , तो तोहफ़े के रूप में उसे इनाम दिया जाता है । तो लायिए , हमारा bonus “.The English translation of what Amitabh Bachchan has said could read, “Respected King Khan, we have heard that Badla is the biggest film of your career. So Brother, when your company makes profits, when someone does good work, he is rewarded. So, where is my bonus?”Isn’t this how each one of us would like to talk to our boss or the human resource professional in office during appraisals or a special performance? So, Amitabh Bachchan asking Shah Rukh Khan for a bonus for Badla is basically every employee!Badla is a film produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s production company Red Chillies Entertainment and directed by Sujoy Ghosh. Starring Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu and Amrita Singh, it is the official remake of the Spanish film The Invisible Guest. Badla released in India on March 8, 2019. Made on a budget of Rs 10 crore only, Badla has managed to collect over Rs 100 crore at the worldwide box office.Ramesh Bala, a consultant and entertainment industry tracker, tweeted the latest Badla box office figures on April 12, saying, “BADLA stays strong!

Take a look at the conversation between the two legends on Twitter over the past few days.Amitabha Bachchan had demanded on April 9, “… about time someone started talking about this silent success .. !! because neither the Producer, nor the distributor, nor the on line Producer, or any else in the Industry, in general .. has even spent a nano second to compliment the success of this film #Badla .. thk u.”To which, SRK replied, “Sir hum toh wait kar rahein hain ki aap party kab de rahein hain hum sabko! We r waiting outside Jalsa every nite!” Big B straightaway hit out at SRK, saying, “”oye .. फ़िल्म में काम हमने kiya , produce आपने किया , promotions में निस्वार्थ योगदान humne diya , अब party भी हम दें !!!??? .. outside Jalsa every night koi nahin aata!!”Shah Rukh Khan said in jest, “Sir film aapki hai…acting aapki hai…Hit aapki wajah se hai…aap na hote toh film hi na hoti.

Blizzard sues Pocket Gnome World of Warcraft bot creators

first_imgBlizzard Entertainment does not like bots operating in World of Warcraft, and demonstrated that by taking the company behind WOWGlider to court a few years ago, winning damages, and shutting the bot down. Now a new bot has appeared, and Blizzard is attempting exactly the same thing with another lawsuit.This new bot is called Pocket Gnome and is offered by Ceiling Fan Software (run by Brian Becker and Statnton Fraser). The number of players that can actually take advantage of Pocket Gnome is limited as it seems to only work on Intel Macs. Even so, due to the automated functionality it offers, Blizzard wants sales of the bot stopped and damages paid.As you can see from the interface image below, Pocket Gnome allows the player to automate a whole load of repetitive tasks in the MMO. If used effectively, you could leave WoW running all day and return to find your character has leveled up significantly without any direct input from you.Blizzard is arguing that such functionality is detrimental to the game as a whole, and “frustrating” for legitimate players. They even claim Pocket Gnome is “diverting revenue from Blizzard to defendants” in this case Ceiling Fan Software. The amount made off sales of Pocket Gnome (which includes both an up front fee and monthly charge) is speculated to be between tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars.Ceiling Fan know that Pocket Gnome is breaking the terms of service for WoW, and they even openly acknowledge it does on the bot’s website. It is followed by a warning that if you get caught you will be banned, but also that bans are avoidable if the bot is used in a smart way.With WOWGlider losing out to Blizzard’s lawyers, I suspect Pocket Gnome will suffer a similar fate. How long it takes before the bot disappears depends on how much cash Becker and Fraser are willing to spend on their defense, and if they have anything to counter the lawsuit with.We must point out that not all MMO bots are bad. In 2009 a WoW bot was shown off at the Defcon security conference that had been created to act like a human player. It was not developed further, but the API was made available for anyone interested in using it. I wonder if Pocket Gnome includes any of the tech released for that bot at Defcon?via Courthouse News Servicelast_img read more

Ready for structured debate Maken on Kejriwal challenge

first_imgResponding to AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal’s challenge to BJP’s Kiran Bedi for a public debate, Maken said, “This will be a healthy tradition. I believe a structured debate should take place in a mutually accepted TV channel or agency moderated by a mutually accepted anchor.”Maken, who is also the party’s Campaign Committee Chief, said a debate will enable the leadership of various parties to spell out their vision to the public by answering “difficult questions”.“I think this is the best way for the leadership to answer difficult questions that are raised and spell out their vision to the public in the age of Internet and social media,” he said, adding that at least “2-4 such debates” should be held.Through a tweet, tagging both Kejriwal and Bedi, Maken said, “Great!

In synergy with nature

first_imgShobha Bhatia, Director, Gallerie Ganesha presents ‘Symphony of Seasons’, a solo show of paintings by Mumbai-based artist Devdatta Padekar at Gallerie Ganesha, daily.Says 38-year-old Padekar, who did his MFA from JJ College of Art, Mumbai and is in Delhi after a gap of four years: “My current series of paintings is about the Alps and the Himalayas. I have been travelling in various regions around these mountain ranges during different seasons for almost three years now. The series is about the ever changing landscapes and magnificent environment in closeness of these majestic and mystical mountain ranges.” Also Read – Add new books to your shelfPadekar has also done an MA (Drawing) from Camberwell College of Arts, London, UK in 2005 and later studied at The Florence Academy of Art, Florence, Italy in 2007. It was during 2007-2009, when he was painting a series on ballet dancers at the Florence Dance Center in Italy that he frequently flew to Florence at different times of the year. “On clear-sky days, the aerial view of the Alps was mesmerising. If the landscape was so beautiful from up above, it would be, I was certain, equally spectacular at ground level.” Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveHe subsequently travelled to the Swiss Alps in 2013, and from then on began his artistic journey in the Alps. Over the course of the next two years, Padekar has painted in different regions across Swiss, French, Italian, Austrian and German Alps at different times of the year. “I painted smaller works on location and larger canvases in my studio. The paintings on the Alps series formed a part of my solo exhibition at the Florence Dance Center, Italy, in March 2016.” Padekar’s work on the Alps goes beyond the natural landscapes. His focus suspends time; while capturing a specific day on the earth, he offers a testimony of place. He rightfully depicts nature in her most natural environment-dressed in blossoms, flowing with water, inhabited by fauna and dotted with human habitat. As he highlights that special ray of sun or refracts light from prism of brushed-on colour, we see the poetry of the world revealed before our eyes. His paintings incorporate simplicity, subtlety and innocence, qualities he uses to depict a harmonious communication between man and nature.Commenting on his work, Keith Ferrone, Director, Florence Dance Center, Italy says, “Observing his paintings, we can breathe the cold of winter, smile as the greens announce spring, feel the warmth of summer and introspectively meditate on autumn. Devdatta paints portraits of the earth in all its magnificence and re-establishes the everyday rite of passage that the world is ours to enjoy and love.”Like the Alps, Padekar is equally fascinated with the world’s youngest mountain range: the Himalaya. The two mountain ranges have different flora, fauna and also diverse cultures. “Just as I painted in the Alps, I trekked across the Himalaya painting in different regions around Himalayan terrain; this journey of mine is still ongoing.”With vast areas devoid of human presence, serenity rules in both the Alps and the Himalaya. In both places, however, the impression of the landscape always seems to be fleeting. Padekar’s aim was to try and capture the ephemeral moods of the Alps and Himalaya in his paintings. “I observed people who live in the mountains, who love their environment and live in complete harmony with nature. That is the very essence of my paintings of the mountains, to admire, preserve and live in complete synergy with nature.”When: December 1 – 31Where: Gallerie GaneshaTiming: 11AM – 7PMlast_img read more

Greece mulls levy on undeclared deposits to raise cash

first_imgThe idea comes as the cash-strapped country is struggling to complete negotiations with bailout creditors over reforms required for it to get a vital 7.2 billion euro ($7.9 billion) rescue loan payment. The new, radical left-led government in Athens says that without the money it can’t make a debt payment to the International Monetary Fund on June 5.Varoufakis insisted that the payment will be made because a deal will be struck by then. “That is my new dogma,” he told a press conference , chuckling.The four-month talks have been slow-moving and at times acrimonious, as both sides have accused each other of intransigence and time-wasting.Varoufakis said Greek officials were also discussing imposing a small charge on cash withdrawals from bank ATMs and on over-the-counter transactions, to encourage electronic banking and fight widespread tax evasion. But in a sign of how fluid the talks are, Varoufakis’ ministry shortly later issued a statement saying the idea of the charges — floated by the creditors — was no longer being considered.Greece has managed so far to pay its creditors — the IMF, other eurozone countries and the European Central Bank — as well as pensioners and state employees every month by emptying its cash reserves. It has tapped a special emergency account for IMF payments and forced local authorities, hospitals and universities to make their funds available to the state. ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece is proposing to legalize tax-dodgers’ undeclared money for a fee, a way to raise money as the country tries to reach a deal with creditors to get more bailout money and avoid default.Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis said Tuesday he is considering a 15 percent levy on undeclared foreign deposits, and double that rate on undeclared deposits in domestic banks, as an enticement for tax-dodgers to legalize their assets. But failure to honor its scheduled payments could launch the country on a downward slope, forcing it to impose limits on the free movement on money, and even adopt a new, devalued version of its old drachma currency. That, exeperts say, would throw Greece into a financial Stone Age and destabilize the rest of Europe and world markets.Varoufakis said representatives of Greece and its creditors were meeting again in Brussels on Tuesday to complete the groundwork for an agreement.“We are starting again the process of recording our agreements and disagreements, so that afterwards there can be an agreement at a higher level,” he said.Varoufakis added that Greece is negotiating with Swiss officials on getting Greek depositors to voluntarily declare their secret deposits there, paying a proposed 15 percent tax in return for a tax amnesty on the sums involved, and whatever rate is agreed will apply to all undeclared Greek deposits abroad.He said a similar policy on undeclared domestic deposits would carry a 30 percent levy, but played down the risk of that prompting a large outflow of Greek deposits.Copyright © The Associated Press.

000-year-old temple of Baalshamin in the ancient caravan city of Palmyra pursue the noble cause of responsibility to protect populations and prevent genocide and crimes and humanity and consequently its legitimacy is in serious question" he said in his remarks Akbaruddin asserted India’s view that the current system of collective international security that is sought to be enforced through the UN Security Council "cannot isolate the implementation of a concept such as the Responsibility to Protect from double standards selectivity arbitrariness and misuse for political gains"He said the requirements essential to implement Responsibility to Protect (R2P) such as a just cause right intention last resort proportional means reasonable prospects and the right authority to take a decision remain elusive and contested The responsibility to protect widely known as R2P refers to the obligation of States toward their populations and toward all populations at risk of genocide and other mass war crimes After years of discussion in the wake of the atrocities committed Bosnia and Rwanda during the 1990s UN Member States committed to the principle by including R2P in the outcome document of the 2005 high-level UN World Summit in New York Akbaruddin said India’s consistent position is that the responsibility to protect its population is one of the foremost responsibilities of every State and the right to life is one of the rights from which no derogation is permitted He however added that the ability of the international community to take appropriate collective action if a State manifestly fails to fulfill its Responsibility to Protect its population is still ridden with serious gaps that need to be reflected upon "The quest for a more just global order should not take place in a manner that will undermine international order itself "Resort to force by other States acting on behalf of the international community through intervention as a legitimate means for enforcing rights in the face of a State’s perceived inability to fulfill its responsibilities in this regard is contrary to the internationalist impulse of our age" he said He pointed out that experience shows that the implementation of the notion of Responsibility to Protect so as to prevent or stop major internal abuses within a State has been used to frame or justify interventions by external powers in several instances "These include some instances where the Security Council failed to agree to intervene…and in other instances by interpretation of mandates in a manner not envisaged by all actors The results have almost always been mixed and very unsatisfactory at best "At worst many such interventions have left entire regions destabilized and have been perceived often rightly to have been undertaken to further the strategic interests of certain powers" he said 1 Syracuse "Especially for our upperclassmen” The department said it is conducting an internal review of the incident and that the California Highway Patrol is also investigating The Sacramento Metro Fire Department transported Cleveland to the hospital chairman of Ford Motor Co at a recent automaker meeting according to Bloomberg News "We want California at the table and we want one national standard" Bainwol the president and chief executive of the Auto Alliance had struck a similar note before Congress this week citing a "regulatory nightmare" if California and allied states wind up with one regulatory system for vehicles while many other states have anotherBainwol called for the Trump administration to keep up annual increases in fuel economy standards and "incorporate California"The Obama-era standards were created under a 2011 agreement reached among the Obama administration California officials and automakers If enacted they would avert 6 billion tons of carbon dioxide emissions from vehicles sold between 2012 and 2025 according to the EPACalifornia has a separate set of standards that because of the state’s huge car market have pushed automakers to produce more fuel-efficient vehicles According to figures from the California New Car Dealers Association California’s 2048000 new car sales in 2017 represented about 12 percent of the 17 million-plus cars sold in the United States last year"My hope is that they’re going to try gently to push back today but it’s unclear that the White House is going to listen and they’re going to change the proposal" said Margo Oge a former EPA regulator who at the agency’s office of transportation and air quality helped create the standards that may now be rolled backMeanwhile environmentalists and sympathetic states are bracing for a major battle to defend one of the largest components of the Obama administration’s attempt to cut the nation’s greenhouse gas emissions"The rollbacks are irresponsible harmful and unjustified" said Luke Tonachel who heads the clean vehicles program at the Natural Resources Defense Council "There’s a robust record supporting the fact that [the standards] are good for consumers and the environment and help protect jobs"Anti-regulatory groups have pushed for the rules to be rolled back"The Obama administration’s fuel economy standards make cars smaller less safe and more expensive" Myron Ebell of the Competitive Enterprise Institute said in a statement "President Trump should expand consumer choice by telling California that it is no longer going to control what kinds of vehicles people across the country can buy A small electric car may make sense for drivers in Los Angeles but not for farmers in rural America"Author information:Chris Mooney covers climate change energy and the environmentThe Bayelsa State Governor Seriake Dickson has said that the police raid of the Abuja residence

our people it has failed The spirit of the Ijaw nation cannot be intimidated the Ijaw spirit is indomitable That is what you have shown you have taught” Dickson who lost his mother recently stated that Clark had demonstrated quality leadership for his people adding he personified what he called the indomitable spirit of the Ijaw people “We admire your courage your strength of character and personifying the indomitable spirit of our people We know that this will not sway you “In this nation the Ijaw spirit cannot be intimidated The Ijaw voice will continue to be heard” the governor said

a stronger Athenian military the representatives of which argued that Melos should just surrender rather than try to fight It has become a textbook study of the tug-of-war between idealism and realism in military and political decision-making “In the History Thucydides shows that power if it is unrestrained by moderation and a sense of justice brings about the uncontrolled desire for more power” according to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy “There are no logical limits to the size of an empire Drunk with the prospect of glory and gain after conquering Melos the Athenians engage in a war against Sicily They pay no attention to the Melian argument that considerations of justice are useful to all in the longer run… And as the Athenians overestimate their strength and in the end lose the war their self-interested logic proves to be very shortsighted indeed” National security adviser HR McMaster who is one of the Trump administration’s most notable Thucydides buffs summed up the book’s point even more simply in 2013: “War is human People fight today for the same fundamental reasons the Greek historian Thucydides identified nearly 2500 years ago: fear honor and interest” Write to Olivia B Waxman at oliviawaxman@timecomIDEAS Leon Panetta served as the director of the Central Intelligence Agency from 2009 to 2011 and as secretary of defense from 2011 to 2013 Through the fall of 2011 the main question facing the American military in Iraq was what our role would be now that combat operations were over When President Obama announced the end of our combat mission in August 2010 he acknowledged that we would maintain troops for a while Now that the deadline was upon us however it was clear to meand many othersthat withdrawing all our forces would endanger the fragile stability then barely holding Iraq together Privately the various leadership factions in Iraq all confided that they wanted some US forces to remain as a bulwark against sectarian violence But none was willing to take that position publicly and Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki concluded that any Status of Forces Agreement which would give legal protection to those forces would have to be submitted to the Iraqi parliament for approval That made reaching agreement very difficult given the internal politics of Iraq but representatives of the Defense and State departments with scrutiny from the White House tried to reach a deal We had leverage We could for instance have threatened to withdraw reconstruction aid to Iraq if al-Maliki would not support some sort of continued US military presence My fear as I voiced to the President and others was that if the country split apart or slid back into the violence that wed seen in the years immediately following the US invasion it could become a new haven for terrorists to plot attacks against the US Iraqs stability was not only in Iraqs interest but also in ours I privately and publicly advocated for a residual force that could provide training and security for Iraqs military Under Secretary of Defense Michèle Flournoy did her best to press that position which reflected not just my views but also those of the military commanders in the region and the Joint Chiefs But the Presidents team at the White House pushed back and the differences occasionally became heated Flournoy argued our case and those on our side viewed the White House as so eager to rid itself of Iraq that it was willing to withdraw rather than lock in arrangements that would preserve our influence and interests We debated with al-Maliki even as we debated among ourselves with time running out The clock wound down in December and Deputy Secretary of Defense Ash Carter continued to argue our case extending the deadline for the Iraqis to act hoping that we might pull out a last-minute agreement and recognizing that once our forces left it would be essentially impossible for them to turn around and return To my frustration the White House coordinated the negotiations but never really led them Officials there seemed content to endorse an agreement if State and Defense could reach one but without the Presidents active advocacy al-Maliki was allowed to slip away The deal never materialized To this day I believe that a small US troop presence in Iraq could have effectively advised the Iraqi military on how to deal with al-Qaedas resurgence and the sectarian violence that has engulfed the country Over the following two and a half years the situation in Iraq slowly deteriorated Al-Maliki was responsible as he exacerbated the deep sectarian issues polarizing his country Meanwhile with the conflict in Syria raging an al-Qaeda offshootISIS or the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syriagained strength Using Syria as its base it began to move into Iraq in 2014 grabbing power in towns and villages across Iraqs north including Mosul and Tall Afar These were strategically important cities that US forces had fought and died to secure The news from Iraq bothered me to no end In my view the ISIS offensive in 2014 greatly increases the risk that Iraq will become al-Qaedas next safe haven That is exactly what it had in Afghanistan pre-9/11 After all we have done to decimate al-Qaedas senior leadership and its core those efforts will be for naught if we allow it to rebuild a base of operations in the Middle East

his "upbeat jokey energy" In short: lots of energy is to be expected from the Flash which is fitting considering that his superpower trades in kinetic energy The basic plot revolves around Batman and Wonder Woman uniting a team of superheroes to fight Steppenwolf The first half of the movie sees Batman as the captain of the most powerful dodgeball team ever assembled; the one scene Snyder showed the reporters depicts Bruce Wayne recruiting Barry Allen aka The Flash with the latter initially attempting to conceal his identity (he says his flashy costume is for competitive ice dancing) before
