SHI Unveils LNG Regasification System for FSRUs

first_imgzoom South Korea’s shipbuilder Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) has developed a liquefied natural gas (LNG) regasification system for LNG floating storage regasification units (FSRUs).The system, called S-Regas(GI), utilizes glycol to regasify LNG into gas. It was presented to industry leaders on September 21.As SHI’s latest regasification achievement, following the direct sea water regasification system, S-Regas(GI) reduces chance of corrosion from traditional method of heating LNG directly with seawater, and is another energy efficient solution saving energy by 5%, the company informed.“In-house regasification system enables not only cost savings but also improvement in schedule and quality management, further enhancing SHI’s leadership in the LNG-FSRU market,” the builder said.“SHI will continue to lead market by developing the next generation technologies in the whole LNG value chain. With proven track record and experience we will meet customer’s needs such as saving operating costs of LNG-FSRU and solid performance,” an SHI representative added.last_img read more

Crime Branch officials questioned Shekhar’s wife Apoorva for over eight hours, sources said.She was questioned about her entry in their Defence colony residence, her schedule –what she did during the day and why she did not find it odd when Shekhar was sleeping throughout the day, they said. Shekhar’s brother Siddharth and househelps –Martha and Golu –were also questioned since they, too, were present at his residence at the time of his death, the sources said.

African Union wraps up hearings aimed at speeding up Darfur peace process

25 June 2009The latest round of public hearings examining the origins of the ongoing conflict in Darfur, which erupted in 2003 and has led to over 300,000 deaths, wrapped up today, a United Nations spokesperson told reporters in New York. Michele Montas said that the high-level African Union Panel on Darfur (AUPD) enquiries, chaired by former South African President Thabo Mbeki, are aimed at advancing the peace process between the Government and various rebel forces in the western Sudanese region.Over the past 10 days, the AUPD has listened to Sudanese political parties, civil society representatives, rebel movements, Arab nomads, native administrators, tribal leaders, internally displaced persons (IDPs), women, youth, and others in Khartoum and across Darfur, as part of its third such session. The Panel is slated to conduct several additional hearings and consultations into the armed struggle – setting Government forces and their allied Janjaweed militiamen against various rebels groups and forcing 2.7 million people from their homes – before drafting recommendations to be presented to the AU and making them available to the public. Meanwhile, AU-UN Joint Chief Mediator for Darfur Djibril Bassolé paid a one-day visit to the North Darfur capital of El Fasher on Thursday, where he held a meeting with Acting Joint Special Representative, Henry Anyidoho, and other senior officials. During the meeting, Mr. Bassolé briefed on the steps taken as well as progress made regarding the peace process, and the outcome of the Doha talks between the Government of Sudan and the rebel Justice and Equality Movement (JEM).Last week, Ms. Montas said that the ceasefire negotiations had been suspended, but were expected to restart at the end of July. The hold up involves the timing of the release of prisoners, with the JEM calling for their freedom before an agreement on the cessation of hostilities is reached.On this trip, Mr. Bassolé also met with local officials, both native Darfuri and Arab, in an effort to expand mediation efforts and explore options for a way forward, said Ms. Montas. read more

LinkedIns stock falls after forecast of slowing growth higher spending upstages solid

FILE – In this May 19, 2011 file photo,the LinkedIn logo is displayed in the foyer at headquarters in Mountain View, Calif. LinkedIn Corp. reports quarterly earnings on Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014. (AP Photo/Paul Sakuma, File) by Michael Liedtke, The Associated Press Posted Feb 6, 2014 2:37 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email SAN FRANCISCO – LinkedIn finished last year with a strong showing, but the online professional networking service rattled already jittery investors by indicating its performance will weaken this year as management ramps up spending while revenue growth slows.The projection released Thursday with LinkedIn’s fourth-quarter results triggered an 8 per cent drop in the company’s stock price during extended trading. The shares shed $17.91 to $206.54.LinkedIn Corp. also announced it is spending $120 million to buy Bright, a startup that makes data-analysis tools matching job hunters with employers.The acquisition could foreshadow a year of heavy investment that crimps LinkedIn’s earnings. CEO Jeff Weiner emphasized the Mountain View, Calif., company will be spending “significantly” on data centres and long-term projects that may take several years to pay off.The late sell-off in LinkedIn’s stock came a day after another online networking service, Twitter Inc., disappointed Wall Street with a fourth-quarter report that revealed a jarring slowdown in its user growth. Twitter only added 9 million users during the period, well below its quarterly average of 16 million additional users during the previous year.In contrast, LinkedIn is persuading more people to set up accounts and share their job histories at a steady pace that suggests more people are interested in managing their careers than sending short messages on Twitter.Another 18 million LinkedIn accounts were set up in the fourth quarter, extending the service’s reach to 277 million users through December. That matched the average of additional accounts that LinkedIn gained in the previous four quarters. Twitter ended December with 241 million users.But LinkedIn appears to be having problems establishing its service as an alluring destination that keeps people coming back. Both the number of visitors to LinkedIn’s site and the number of total pages viewed declined during the final three months of last year, marking the second consecutive quarter of decay.That’s a troubling trend because it means fewer opportunities for online advertising, which currently accounts for about one-fourth of the LinkedIn’s revenue. The company makes most of its money from subscriptions and other fees paid by employers and headhunters.LinkedIn earned $3.8 million, or 3 cents per share. That was down 67 per cent from $11.5 million, or 10 cents per share, a year earlier.If not for certain expenses, LinkedIn said it would have earned 39 cents per share — a penny above the projections of analysts surveyed by FactSet.Revenue climbed 47 per cent from the previous year to $447 million. Analysts had anticipated revenue of $438 million.Management predicted revenue of $455 million to $460 million during the first three months of this year, below the average analyst estimate of $471 million.

Deficits Tories and pollution 3 ways Canadian politics touched us this week

by Heather Scoffield, The Canadian Press Posted May 27, 2016 3:00 pm MDT Last Updated May 28, 2016 at 7:20 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email OTTAWA – The House of Commons wasn’t sitting this week, but with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau taking a day off in Japan to celebrate his wedding anniversary, and with Canada’s ambassador to Ireland tackling a demonstrator — captured on video — there was no shortage of political huffing and puffing.Beyond the huff-puffery, there were some solid political developments that will materially affect Canadians and their political landscape: new insight into the management of the global and Canadian economy; an attempt at renewal within the Conservative party; and new information from Environment Canada on the impact of the oilsands.Here are three ways politics mattered this week:IT’S THE ECONOMY: Trudeau spent a good deal of political capital this week pushing his case internationally for deficit-fueled growth. In Japan for the annual summit of the Group of Seven rich countries, he sought allies in his plan to invest heavily in infrastructure and programs — even if it means running up deficits. But there was no rush to jump on that bandwagon, with G7 leaders agreeing instead to each look for their own ways to boost growth.Trudeau’s pitch is theoretical, even within Canada; investment in infrastructure has only just begun to ramp up, the tax-and-benefit structure is in the midst of being changed, and the actual effects on growth and the middle class are unknown.But we’re about to find out what the Liberal plan feels like. New fiscal numbers released Friday showed the federal government was in deficit in 2015-16, even before year-end adjustments are made. Officials say the government is on track to register a $5-billion deficit for the year when all is said and done. And the deficits are projected to grow before they shrink. What’s less predictable is when or if the economy will be lifted out of the doldrums and whether regular Canadians will feel the difference.GETTING TO KNOW YOU: Both the Conservatives and Liberals are holding their annual conventions this weekend, with delegates from across the country gathering to decide the future direction for their parties — and give Canadians a sense of what kind of political choices they will have in the future.The Liberal convention was a bit of a victory lap, with some back-and-forth tussling over the party constitution and assisted dying thrown in for good measure. The Conservative convention, on the other hand, marked the end of an era.Stephen Harper kicked off the convention with his first public words since his defeat in last fall’s federal election. He defended his record and said goodbye. The party he co-founded began moving on. In the post-Harper era, delegates are pushing for more say in who runs the party, debating how open they should be to same-sex marriage and other social policies, and ruminating about who should lead them next.One thing is certain: It won’t be Rona Ambrose, despite her personal popularity within the federal caucus and good reviews of her performance on Parliament Hill. Delegates defeated a motion that would have changed the rules to allow interim leaders to run for the real deal.The leadership is up for grabs, just like the nature and direction of the party itself.OILSANDS IN THE AIR: First it was global oil prices; then it was the wildfires. Now, the oilsands are hearing more bad news, this time from Environment Canada researchers.Writing in the science journal Nature this week, the researchers say Alberta’s oilsands are one of the biggest sources of air pollution in North America, emitting tiny bits of particulate matter on par with cities such as Paris and Mexico City.The secondary organic aerosol pollution was found to be spreading over a large area downwind of the oil sands. The pollution is produced when volatile organic compounds interact with sunlight or other chemicals to create particles. They have been linked to lung and heart problems, among other health problems.Much of the environmental discussion around the oilsands has been about the effect of bitumen production on greenhouse gas emissions and climate change, so this week’s research demands some new thinking. The researchers say they need to know a lot more about the process before they can start contemplating solutions.

Is The Gathering actually working

first_imgIT’S BAD NEWS for Hollywood actor Gabriel Byrne but The Gathering may actually be working after all.The Government splashed out €5million on  enticing the Irish diaspora back to the emerald isle and promised it would attract an extra 300,000 visitors this year.Figures released today by the Central Statistics Office show between February and April there was a 56,300 increase in tourists over the three month period.The boost comes before the busy summer months and the Government expects to reach its target before the end of the year.Since 2010, tourism numbers have jumped by close to 250,000 people for the period up to April.Former Cultural Ambassador, Byrne, called The Gathering a ‘shakedown’ of the diaspora during an interview on Today FM last year.But the American public do not seem to see the Government’s initiative the same way – with  a 16 per cent increase in visitors from the other side of the Atlantic so far in 2013.There has also been an eight per cent rise in tourists from Mainland Europe but The Gathering has failed to capture the imagination of the British public with visitors down two per cent.CommunityJunior Minister for Sport and Tourism, Michael Ring, welcomed the tourism boost and said The Gathering was proving a success because local communities had rallied behind the project.“It’s working and it’s working very well.  They are coming in from all over the world and I  expect the next six months to be even better,” Ring told TheJournal.ie. The reason this is working is because it is community led. Every community in the country came in behind this.Ring added: “The Gathering is attracting them in but the other thing that is attracting them is that there is a lot more access into the country and it makes the prices cheaper. There is valuable to be got in Ireland now.Tourism Ireland chief executive, Niall Gibbons, said: “Today’s figures suggest a positive start to 2013 as we head into the high season.I particularly welcome the increase in visitor numbers from North America which suggests we could be on course to achieve our best year ever from that market  We hope to welcome over one million American visitors, spending about US$1 billion.”Read: The Gathering should be encouraged, not belittled and criticised >Read: The Gathering 2013: What to expect >last_img read more

Bumper year for tourism

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The increase in international flights to Greece is leading local tourism to another record season, as the industry’s first-quarter data, point to one more year of double-digit growth.International arrivals at the country’s main airports posted a 28.8 per cent annual increase in the period from January to March, coming to 810,750, according to the Association of Hellenic Tourism Enterprises (SETE) and the Civil Aviation Authority. Growth amounted to 28.7 per cent in January, 24.2 per cent in February and 32.2 per cent last month.The increase is to a large extent due to the 29.5 per cent rise in arrivals at Athens International Airport, while Thessaloniki posted a 22.3 per cent annual increase. The numbers elsewhere in Greece were too low to draw any safe conclusions, but it is particularly positive that the trend of extending the tourism season is continuing at several airports around the country.Rhodes has shown particular progress in developing niche tourism this spring, and is gearing up to receive 8,000 members of the Austrian pensioners’ association in the next five weeks.Commenting on the sector’s impressive start to the year, SETE stated that the target of 25 million arrivals this year is quite attainable. It added that “Greek tourism, with the strength and efforts of more than 50,000 small and medium-sized enterprises and 70,000 workers, is for another year ready to contribute toward bolstering the economy and society, both in the capital and around the country, as well as reducing unemployment.”Civil Aviation Authority data showed that the total number of flights to Greek airports last month came in at 19,922, posting an 18.2 percent increase from March 2014. This derived from a 16.1 percent rise in domestic flights and 21.4 percent growth in international arrivals. Charter flights, especially, expanded by 37.1 percent to reach up to 299.The number of passengers exceeded 1.8 million last month, growing 28.2 percent from last year. In the first quarter of the year, total arrivals at Greek airports numbered 4.9 million. Dimitris Koukis, the authority’s director, estimated that last year’s record of 45 million passengers will be beaten this year.last_img read more

Manger du poisson pour améliorer la fertilité masculine

first_imgManger du poisson pour améliorer la fertilité masculine ? Selon une récente étude américaine, consommer du poisson pourrait permettre d’améliorer la qualité du sperme et des spermatozoïdes. Celui-ci contiendrait certains acides gras indispensables à la formation des gamètes masculins.Si les médecins prêtent déjà à la consommation de poisson de nombreux bienfaits, c’est un nouveau bénéfice que viennent d’identifier des chercheurs de l’université de l’Illinois. Selon des travaux publiés dans la revue Biology of Reproduction, manger du poisson pourrait également permettre d’améliorer la qualité des spermatozoïdes et donc la fertilité. À lire aussiL’impressionnant repas d’un héron surpris en pleine natureLe raisonnement des chercheurs est simple : “les spermatozoïdes normaux présentent (au niveau de leur tête) une structure en forme d’arc appelé acrosome essentielle à la fécondation, car elle abrite, organise et concentre une variété d’enzymes que le sperme utilise ensuite pour fertiliser l’ovule”, expliquent le Pr. Manabu Nakamura, professeur agrégé de nutrition et son étudiant, Timothy Abbott, co-auteur de l’étude. Mais la formation de cette structure et du reste du corps du spermatozoïde nécessite un acide gras particulier appelé docosahexaénoïque (DHA). “Sans DHA, la structure vitale ne se crée pas et les cellules du spermatozoïde ne fonctionne pas”, commente Timothy Abbott cité par Santelog. Or, les poissons sont justement une excellente source de cet acide gras.  Après avoir découvert ce rôle de la DHA, les scientifiques ont donc mené une petite expérience : ils ont privé de DHA des souris mâles à l’aide d’une manipulation génétique. Ils ont ainsi constaté que les rongeurs devenaient totalement infertiles. En revanche, lorsqu’ils ont réintroduit de la DHA à l’alimentation des souris, ces dernières ont retrouvé une fertilité normale. D’où la conclusion des chercheurs qui prônent donc une alimentation riche en poissons gras tels que le saumon ou le thon. Néanmoins, outre la fertilité, les auteurs de l’étude soulignent que l’acide DHA est également présent dans d’autres tissus notamment du cerveau et de la rétine. Ainsi, ils estiment que leurs recherches pourraient aider à l’amélioration du fonctionnement du cerveau et de la vision voire pour soigner certaines maladies cognitives comme la démence.  Le 16 janvier 2012 à 11:25 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Blazers find some pride in their D

first_imgMinnesota Timberwolves’ Kevin Love (42) looks to shoot against Portland Trail Blazers’ J.J. Hickson, back, and LaMarcus Aldridge, left, during the first half Friday. PORTLAND — It started at shootaround.In the morning hours before the Trail Blazers would walk onto the Rose Garden court, players gathered at the practice facility and stood ashamed.The team defense wasn’t very good. In fact — judging by some defensive statistics — the Blazer defense was worst in the league.Coach Terry Stotts called them out. He showed the numbers, and though players confessed to feeling humiliated in the morning, by Friday evening, they had grown inspired.The Blazers shut down the Minnesota Timberwolves, 103-95, before turning the lights off in the locker room for a while.After a rather sobering loss in Phoenix on Wednesday, when the team allowed the Suns to shoot with near 60-percent accuracy — continuing a trend that has plummeted the Blazers’ defensive field-goal percentage to last in the NBA — the pride had returned.“We got embarrassed, really,” said Wesley Matthews who scored a season-high 30 points on 12-of-17 shooting (5-6 on 3-pointers). “We’ve been embarrassed.”“Teams shooting 50 percent on us. The thumping that we took in Phoenix … and coach brought it to our attention at shootaround today where we stand in the NBA as far as defensive field-goal percentage and shots at the rim — and it was ugly.”If the coach’s call out wasn’t enough, the Blazers needed one more punch in the gut by nightfall. In the first quarter, the Wolves scored 33 points with center Nikola Pekovic dictating the paint for 10 points. Another “ugly” defensive performance seemed likely but the Blazers turned the effort around and held the Wolves to just 41 percent the rest of the way.last_img read more

Fangamers Mother 3 Handbook is the best guide you can get for

first_imgEarthbound is a beloved cult classic RPG from the Super Nintendo days, developed by Shigesato Itoi and brought to North America. It was charming because of its modern, quirky humor and setting, its simple, comic-like design, and its general playfulness. It’s also a sequel to a game, Mother, that released on the Famicom and was never brought to North America until recently as Earthbound Beginnings on the Wii U Virtual Console. It also got a sequel, Mother 3, which was released on the Game Boy Advance and never brought to North America. It’s the best trilogy we’ve only seen a third of. More importantly, Mother 3 is an incredible game full of humor, darkness, and poignancy. It’s wonderful.That brings us to Fangamer, originally Starman.net. It’s a gray market video game merchandise site that produces excellent clothes, housewares, office supplies, and collectibles inspired by video games. It started as an Earthbound fan site, but has grown into one of most prominent fan design merch companies out there, with loads of shirts inspired by Earthbound and Chrono Trigger (and plenty of other games), jewelry based on The Legend of Zelda, coasters based on Mario and Mega Man, and even an oven mitt inspired by the Power Glove.Fangamer’s crowning achievement, which strikes from the core of what it was and what it is, is the Mother 3 Handbook. It’s a fan-made player’s guide for Mother 3, which remains not commercially available in North America. There is a very well-done translation patch if you have some means of acquiring a digital version of the game (don’t do crime, kids!), but Nintendo has yet to bring it to our shores. You can, however, get this player’s guide legitimately, and even if you don’t play the game it’s a fantastic book.This is a full-color, dust-jacketed, stats-filled, art-drenched labor of love known as (at least, for the softcover version) the Pork Army Survival Manual, and it has every tiny detail you could want about Mother 3. It’s loaded with maps, walkthroughs, information about enemies, and sheer charm. If you have a legitimate, legal means of playing Mother 3 (right?), you should get this book. If you can’t play Mother 3 but loved Earthbound, you should get this book (though it’s spoiler-filled, obviously). If you want a glimpse at an incredible game that never game here, you should check out this book. The softcover version is not currently available, but you can get the hardcover version for a very reasonable $32.Fangamer has other interesting fan-made books as well, including a Legend of Zelda fan art book and encyclopedia Legend of the Hero, and the Pokémon fan art and taxonomy guide Field Guide to Kanto. Fangamer also produces several indie games’ merchandise, including official pins, posters, shirts, and plushes for Octodad, Papers, Please, Shovel Knight, and FTL.last_img read more

How to disable Avasts annoying sounds and voiceovers

first_imgHow to disable Avast’s annoying sounds and voiceovers by Martin Brinkmann on February 07, 2017 in Tutorials – 11 commentsThe following guide offers instructions on how to turn off sounds and voiceover audio notifications in Avast Free Antivirus for Windows.Avast Free Antivirus is a popular security software for Windows which, even for free antivirus, is pushing extra stuff such as browser extensions, the company’s SafeZone browser, various tools, and a VPN service to user systems by default during installation.Our recommendation is to select the customize option during installation, to remove components that you don’t require from the installation process.Even if you do, you may notice a couple of irritating features after installation; one of them may be sounds and voiceovers that Avast plays by default.Disable Avast’s annoying sounds and voiceoversAvast plays sounds when it detects threats, suspicious items or potentially unwanted software, and when scans complete. It may also use voiceover sounds on top of that.If you don’t require those, you may want to disable sounds in Avast completely, or at least for the events that you don’t require them.Here is how that is done:Open the Avast Free Antivirus software, or bring it to the front if it runs already on the system.Click on the cogwheel icon in the interface to open the settings.Under General, scroll down until you find the Sounds section. You need to click on Sounds to expand it and display the preferences there.What follows is up to you. You can turn off all sounds by removing the checkmark from “enable Avast sounds”.This blocks event sounds and voiceovers completely. If voiceovers annoy you, uncheck the box “use voiceover sounds (when available)” to turn these off on your system.Last but not least, you may turn off the following event sounds individually as well:Threat detected.Suspicious item detected.Potentially unwanted program (PUP) detected.Scan complete.The change takes effect immediately. You can undo any of the changes you mad at any time by repeating the process, and checking the sound and voiceover boxes again in the program settings.Another option that you have is to set the volume of Avast to 0 using the Windows Volume Mixer. This is not required usually, as turning off sounds in Avast itself will block the application from playing sounds and voiceovers.Still, to make use of it, right-click on the volume icon in the system area area and select Open Volume Mixer from the context menu.Locate Avast under applications, and drag the volume slider all the way to the bottom to mute Avast Free Antivirus completely.Now You: Do you find sound notifications useful on your devices?SummaryArticle NameHow to disable Avast’s annoying sounds and voiceoversDescriptionThe following guide offers instructions on how to turn off sounds and voiceover audio notifications in Avast Free Antivirus for Windows.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
