Shanghai Salvage Starts Removing Kea Trader Debris from Reef

first_imgShanghai Salvage Company (SSC) has started recovering debris from the reef where the ill-fated Kea Trader ran aground a year ago.The operation, during which the company would remove debris detached during storms, follows completion of a new independent bathymetric survey, Lomar Shipping, the owner of the vessel, informed.The survey determined current surface conditions and the precise location of debris, enabling shallow work vessels to move around the rock hard reef for divers to collect the metal fragments.Airbags have been used to remove larger pieces of hull structure off the reef bed and onto the logistics support & command platform Ju Li, that is now coordinating SSC operations on site. Lomar Shipping said that this work would continue and escalate over the coming months with the return of more favourable weather.The materials and debris being recovered would be recycled by local businesses in New Caledonia.Additionally, the company informed that plans for recovering more substantive pieces of hull from the reef bed are well advanced, with the intention to mobilise new heavy resources with heavy lift capabilities – the design of which is subject to complex engineering studies and final approval by the authorities.“Tremendous progress has been made in the past 12 months to safely remove the Kea Trader – however these efforts have been stymied by horrendous conditions on site,” a Lomar spokesman said.Four offshore vessels continue to work on site, whilst also monitoring the ocean for any floating debris and pollutants.The vessel’s vertical fracture last November and subsequent storm damage released a quantity of tar balls and polyurethane insulating material, as well as pieces of containers and carpet, that washed ashore in New Caledonia and the Loyalty Islands.The 2,194 TEU Kea Trader ran aground on July 12, 2017, only six months after it was delivered to its owner from Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard in China.last_img read more

Gay wins 200 at nationals with season-leading time

first_imgby Pat GrahamDES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Mentally, Tyson Gay is now in a good place. Physically, too.That’s the healing power of running fast at nationals.Once and for all, Gay put to rest any questions about his surgically repaired hip as he completed the 100-200 sprint double Sunday at U.S. track championships, winning the 200 meters in 19.74 seconds.It’s the fastest time in the world this season. Gay also beat Justin Gatlin in the 100 on Friday in a season-leading time of 9.75.“I’m pretty tired,” Gay said. “I’m just glad I’m leaving the race healthy.”With his strong performance, Gay delivered an emphatic message to the rest of the world, and more specifically Usain Bolt: The Gay of old is back. Not the version hobbled by nagging injuries over the years, but the one who captured the 100 and 200 titles at the 2007 world championships.“I’m just happy to be healthy,” Gay said. “It feels good, man.”It should be quite a show when he meets up with Bolt at the world championships in Moscow this summer. Not that Gay is thinking any farther than icing down his legs after an exhausting weekend.“I’m just focused on myself right now,” Gay said. “It’s no secret Usain Bolt is obviously the greatest of all time. He’s definitely going to be prepared.”In the women’s 200, Kimberlyn Duncan upset Olympic champion Allyson Felix. Duncan finished in 21.80, with Felix 0.05 seconds behind. Jeneba Tarmoh was third.Felix said she got a late start on training and hasn’t completely found her racing form just yet. She skipped the 100 earlier in the week to be more prepared for her signature event, the 200.“I’m lacking a little bit of speed right now,” Felix said. “Overall, my conditioning could be a little better.”Duncan did what few have done on Felix by making up ground at the end and blazing by her to close out the race.“I’m just overjoyed to having been here and to have the opportunity,” Duncan said.Gay built a lead after the curve and then fended off the hard-charging Isiah Young, who finished in 19.86. Curtis Mitchell, the training partner of Gay, was third to grab the last spot in the 200, while Wallace Spearmon, a three-time U.S. outdoor champion, wound up a disappointing fourth.It was a busy day to finish nationals, with one final after another in rapid succession. Other winners include Alysia Montano (800), Jennifer Simpson (5,000), Duane Solomon (men’s 800), Ryan Wilson (110 hurdles), Bernard Lagat (5,000), Erik Kynard (high jump), Riley Dolezal (javelin), Evan Jager (3,000 steeplechase), Dalilah Muhammad (400 hurdles), George Kitchens (long jump), Ryan Whiting (shot put), Gia Lewis-Smallwood (discus) and Tim Seaman (20,000 race walk).Olympic pole vault champion and indoor record holder Jenn Suhr cruised to a national title, setting up a showdown with outdoor record holder Yelena Isinbayeva of Russia.In Isinbayeva’s backyard, no less.“I’m inviting as many family members that will go over to Moscow as I can to help cheer for me,” Suhr said. “I think I might be the underdog there. We’re hoping to get a big crowd over there.” Tyson Gay, center, leads Isiah Young, left, and Wallace Spearmon, right, during the senior men’s 200-meter dash finals at the U.S. Championships athletics meet on Sunday, June 23, 2013, in Des Moines, Iowa.

IDC ‘adopts’ 15 Dinaledi schools

first_img“The IDC’s contribution to eduation was informed by the government’s concerted efforts to address the shortage of skills, especially in the maths, science and technology sectors,” said IDC chief executive Geoffrey Qhena in a statement earlier this month. The IDC has ‘adopted’ 15 schools, and has pledged to support each with R100 000 over the next three years. 21 October 2008 The schools are from the Sekhukhune district municipality in Limpopo, the Kgalagadi district municipality in the Northern Cape, the Ehlanzeni district municipality in Mpumalanga and the Alfred Nzo district municipality in the Eastern Cape. The Department of education plans to have some 500 schools from across the country participating in the Dinaledi programme by the end of this year, with the aim of achieving 50 000 mathematics passes on higher grade by 2009. “Moreover, we have made a conscious decision to channel our efforts to schools in poorer municipal areas.” As part of its efforts to boost education in maths and science, the IDC also has a bursary fund to offer financial support for up to 100 students each year at accredited South African universities, and also supports Technology in Rural Schools, a non-governmental organisation that trains teachers in rural areas. In October last year, the Zenex Foundation entered into a R10-million partnership with the Dinaledi schools programme to increase teaching quality and learner performance in English language skills. Over and above that, the IDC will support a top student from each school, providing them with a tertiary education bursary for three years to pursue careers in maths, science and technology. South Africa’s Industrial Development Corporation has pledged over R7-million to support the education department’s Dinaledi schools programme, which is dedicated to improving mathematics and science education in the country.

Is Kim Dotcom’s New Site, Mega, The Wild West Of Piracy?

first_imgHow to Write a Welcome Email to New Employees? adam popescu Tags:#content#Kim Dotcom#privacy#security Related Posts In some ways the new site seems like just another way to provoke authorities. But Julie Samuels, a staff attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation says there’s a very real need and desire for a safe place to keep information. “There’s a place for services that allow individuals to store their data, to store their files, without fear of government intrusion,” she says.Samuels says cloud-based storage services are the modern day file cabinet. And more often that not, they house largely legal and personal items such as work documents and family photos. People want to keep them protected, and thus encrypted. “Of course there are going to be actors who may use it for purposes that we would not condone, purposes that we think are improper or illegal, but that’s not the whole story here. And I think it would be really unfortunate if we failed to take a wider look at what’s going on,” Samuels says. Photo Courtesy of Brinny D and Sam Churchill Why You Love Online Quizzes Megaupload, the hosting site that the U.S. government shut down last year over charges of copyright infringement and pirated content, is being reborn. Sort of. The new version is called Mega, an encrypted file sharing service built by Kim Dotcom, a man some call an Internet slumlord, others an online folk hero.The new site will launch on Saturday, Jan. 19, almost a year to the day after New Zealand police raided Kim Dotcom’s plush home in the suburbs of Auckland and arrested him along with three of his associates on a slew of charges.  The German-born Dotcom, nee Schmitz, is hosting the new site in his adopted New Zealand. (This after promising that country’s government that he would not resurrect the site, and after they admitted to illegally spying on him. Phew.)He’s also planning a press conference a day later on Jan. 20 at his ritzy rented pad, where he plans to introduce the site as a protected means to securely store and transfer confidential data. He says Mega will be completely in the cloud, and will protect files from the prying eyes of the government through its encryption. BackstoryIn New Zealand, Dotcom gained popularity for his luck in seemingly outfoxing the legal system. Citing a paperwork error, New Zealand’s High Court ruled that $750,000 in his assets could be returned in the raid on his home. That meant that his property had been seized without proper notice by Kiwis who worked jointly with U.S. federal prosecutors.With the search warrants invalidated, the decision on his extradition to the States was tabled until March of this year. It has since been pushed all the way to August. According to Bloomberg, authorities in New Zealand have been alerted of the new site, and as yet, have raised no objections. Dotcom is still considered a criminal by U.S. authorities, and the Department of Justice accuses him of copyright infringement, racketeering and money laundering.U.S. authorities say Megaupload, which last year accounted for 4% of the Internet’s total traffic, generated upwards of $175 million in profit from the flow of pirated content. If the U.S. gets a hold of him, tries and prosecutes him, the larger than life Dotcom could face 20 years behind bars.Pirate Or Entrepreneur?  Growing Phone Scams: 5 Tips To Avoid 7 Types of Video that will Make a Massive Impac…last_img read more

Critics raise doubts on NASAs arsenic bacteria

first_img Explore further A microscopic image of GFAJ-1 grown on arsenic. The findings reported last week, were that some bacteria (GFAJ-1) thrived when access to phosphate was removed and the bacteria were grown in a highly toxic culture rich is arsenate. The scientists suggested the bacteria thrived because they were able to replace phosphorus, which has always been thought vital to life, with arsenic, which is directly under it on the periodic table and has similar chemical properties. The researchers also suggested the bacteria were replacing phosphorus with arsenic within the bases that make up DNA. These findings, if correct, would mean the scientists had found a new form of life on Earth, and it would also re-write the guide book on the essential requirements for life to exist elsewhere.After the findings were published in Science, other scientists began immediately to express their doubts at the conclusions of the paper, with some even expressing the opinion the paper should not have been published at all. One of the critics was Dr. Alex Bradley, from Harvard University, who blogged that there were a number of problems with the research. Firstly, if arsenic had replaced phosphorus in the DNA the molecule would have broken into fragments when the DNA was placed in water, since the arsenic would have hydrolyzed, and yet it did not. Secondly, the paper showed there was a small amount of phosphorus in the medium and Bradley argued that even though small, this could have been enough, since bacteria metabolism is extremely efficient. Dr. Bradley also pointed out the bacteria live in Mono Lake, which is rich in arsenic but which also contains a higher concentration of phosphate than almost anywhere else on Earth, and this means there would be no selective pressure for a life based on arsenic to evolve. Dr. Bradley also suggested a mass spectrum of the DNA sequences would have shown whether or not the nucleotides contained arsenic in place of phosphorus, but this was not done.Another critic was University of British Columbia biologist Rosie Redfield, who reviewed the paper on her blog, and has more recently submitted a letter to the journal. Among her conclusions are that the paper “doesn’t present ANY convincing evidence that arsenic has been incorporated into DNA (or any other biological molecule).” She also writes: “If this data was presented by a PhD student at their committee meeting, I’d send them back to the bench to do more cleanup and controls.”Dr. Redfield also points out there was phosphate in the culture and that the authors did not calculate whether the amount of growth they saw in the arsenate-only medium could be supported by the phosphate present. She calculates on the blog that the growth of the bacteria is actually limited by the amount of phosphorus.Another point made by Redfield is that the arsenic bacteria were “like plump little corn kernels” and contain granules, which are usually produced by bacteria when they have ample supplies of carbon and energy sources but there are shortages of other nutrients needed for growth.The authors of the arsenic bacteria paper initially refused to be drawn into the arguments, saying the discussion should be confined to peer-reviewed journals, but one of the authors, Ronald Ormeland, did answer questions on the controversy after giving a lecture on the findings at NASA headquarters yesterday. He said the amount of phosphorus in the sample was too small to sustain growth, and a mass spectrum was not done because they did not have enough money, and wanted to get the result published quickly. He also pointed out that the bacteria are still there and other scientists could duplicate the work and carry out further experiments if they wished. (PhysOrg.com) — NASA’s announcement last week that bacteria had been discovered that appeared to replace phosphorus with arsenic and thrive even in the most poisonous environments, has now come under fire from a number of scientists.
