Salvors Start Removing Boxes from Grounded Kea Trader

first_imgzoom Work to extract 750 tonnes of heavy fuel oil from the grounded container ship m/v Kea Trader is now complete and efforts are underway to remove containers from the vessel.The process of removing containers could take several months to complete, subject to suitable conditions and operations on site, according to the ship’s owner Lomar Shipping.“A break in winter weather conditions last weekend allowed salvors to begin trials to remove containers using the ship’s own gear (cranes),” the company said.Six of the vessel’s 756 containers, of which 553 were being carried empty for onward shipments, were successfully transferred onto a barge that managed to come alongside.In an effort to re-floating the 25,293 dwt boxship, the salvors will continue removing containers on board, concentrating initially on those units that are most accessible and those containing any hazardous goods. This will be undertaken using the combination of a Sikorsky Skycrane heavy lift helicopter, a crane barge that is currently en route from Singapore and the vessel’s own gear.“Good progress has been made over the last week with all of the heavy fuel oil now having been extracted from the vessel. The focus has now turned to the removal of the containers on board, however the Kea Trader is in a remote part of the Pacific, which has made and will continue to make this procedure lengthy and complex in nature,” a Lomar spokesman said.Thirty days after its grounding on July 12, the Kea Trader remains in a stable position on the Durand Reefs in the Pacific Ocean.With a 2,194 TEU capacity, the container ship was launched in January 2017 at the Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard in China. The ship had been sailing from Papeete, in French Polynesia, to Nourmea, the capital of New Caledonia, when it ran into trouble.last_img read more

We Still Need To Improve Hervé Renard

Rabat- Ahead of the Atlas Lions’ clash with Uzbekistan’s national squad and following Hervé’s boys’ somewhat impressive win against Serbia, Morocco’s French head coach believes that his side still needs to improve its flow and rhythm in many departments. To counter the quick passes and counterattacks of world-class opponents, the Atlas Lions need more focus and a better ball possession, Hervé Renard said yesterday in an interview with Spanish outlet EFE.Though he is convinced  that the Moroccan national squad has the technical depth and the required individual talents to take on football’s heavyweights like Spain, the meticulous French coach believes that his team “needs to improve its ball possession, as well as its ball recuperation techniques in order to compete with other teams” at this summer’s World Cup in Russia. If you are to confront and thwart the sea of counterattacks and crosses associated with European squads, you need to “make the best of your opportunities,” which includes maintaining a good possession, Renard argued in his interview.The “white wizard,” as he is often called, went on to say that “European teams are faster;” and as such, countering them requires “that you not lose your balls”: Keeping the ball is key, Renard explained. Renard’s comments reflect what we wrote last week in the aftermath of the Atlas Lions’ victory against Serbia: “Against the likes of Spain and Portugal, where the ball quickly flows from the midfield to the sides, like a tide of an irresistible tsunami, you need an almost impenetrable defensive fortress… And so, to stop the lethal Cristiano headers, or the incessant Alba crosses, or the seamless and elegant Isco-Iniesta midfield, you need more inspiration and urgency than what the Atlas Lions displayed yesterday. Morocco shined in Turin, but it can do better; it has to do better.” Considering what he told EFE in yesterday’s interview, Renard seems to understand, three months before the Russian World Cup, that his boys are in dire need of change and adaptability, which is a good sign: you need a winner’s mentality to take on Spain and Portugal. read more

Iraqi refugees in Iran held up by red tape and border closures

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) says that some 300 ethnic Arab Iraqi refugees in Jahrom camp in southern Iran have been waiting since last year for security clearance from the Iraqi authorities before they can return, while another 200 refugees in the camp have also expressed interest in returning to their home country.Complicated clearance procedures have delayed repatriation for some refugees – until recently applications were sent via Amman, Jordan, to Baghdad for processing. In addition, there have been sporadic closures of the borders at Shalamcheh and Mehran since April for security reasons.“I used to work in a cement factory for shelter construction,” 50-year-old Iraqi Abdul Karim told the UN refugee agency. “After I registered for repatriation, I sold all my equipment, thinking it would take one to two months. Now we’re hearing that security clearance has not come. How long should we wait? My children and I have no jobs. We didn’t know it would take this long,” he added.Mr. Karim is among hundreds of thousands of mostly Shia Muslims who fled persecution under the late President Saddam Hussein’s regime and sought refuge in Iran between the 1970s and the early 1990s. Many returned home in the second half of the 1990s.The fall of the Baathist regime in 2003 led to another wave of returns from Iran, most of them ethnic Arabs. “Unlike the gradual nature of the influx, repatriation took place overnight,” said Shokrollah Kazemifar, the director-general of Iran’s Bureau of Aliens and Foreign Immigrant Affairs in Ahwaz, south-western Iran, near the Iraqi border. “Once they decided to go, they demolished their homes and took everything.”Gaitrie Ammersing, UNHCR’s protection officer in Ahwaz, noted several reasons for this: “Some refugees say the security situation and job opportunities are gradually improving in southern Iraq. They also tell us it is now much easier to obtain Iraqi documents upon return.”Others say it is getting harder to survive in Iran. “Life is hard here. I work nearby but it’s not always easy to find jobs,” said Attaye Heidari, who has lived in south-western Iran’s Bani Najjar camp for the last 16 years. “I’m hard pressed and thinking about return. I believe life will be better in Basra.”More than 18,000 Iraqi refugees in Iran have been assisted home since November 2003, mostly to areas such as Baghdad and the southern governorates. Numbers peaked in 2004, with over 12,500 returns. Some 230 have repatriated from Iran to the north and south of Iraq so far this year.The UN refugee agency does not encourage returns to Iraq at the moment, due to the fragile security situation. But it provides some assistance to those who insist on going. This includes interviewing them to make sure return is voluntary and providing a cash grant to help them with transport and initial reintegration costs. And recent developments may help speed their return. “A new Iraqi consul has been set up in Ahwaz, which should expedite the process instead of going through Amman and Baghdad,” explained Carlos Zaccagnini, UNHCR’s representative in Iran, during a recent visit to the camp. “It will cost US$25 for each family to apply for security clearance there.”There are an estimated 54,000 registered Iraqi refugees living in Iran today, the large majority of them living outside camps, in urban areas. 12 June 2008The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) says that some 300 ethnic Arab Iraqi refugees in Jahrom camp in southern Iran have been waiting since last year for security clearance from the Iraqi authorities before they can return, while another 200 refugees in the camp have also expressed interest in returning to their home country. read more

Manitoba sets carbon tax at 25 a tonne as Trudeau warns feds

WINNIPEG — The federal and Manitoba governments moved closer to a clash over carbon pricing Friday, as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said his government will impose a carbon tax in Manitoba if need be.“There will be a federal backstop and if any province doesn’t move forward in an appropriate way, the federal government will ensure that the equivalent price on carbon is applied to the specific jurisdiction,” Trudeau said in Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville, just east of Montreal.“We will respect what Canadians asked us to do and show the leadership on protecting the environment and growing the economy that all Canadians expect of us.”Any carbon-tax money collected by Ottawa in Manitoba would be spent in the province, he added.Trudeau’s words came hours after Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister announced he will defy federal demands by introducing a carbon tax of $25 a tonne next year and keeping it at that rate. Ottawa has demanded provinces implement either a cap-and-trade system or a tax that would start at $10 a tonne in 2018 and ramp up to $50 a tonne by 2022.Pallister indicated he is ready for a battle with the federal government, which he suggested is using intimidation.“If Manitobans are favourable to our plan, I think it will be difficult for Ottawa to invoke theirs on our province,” Pallister said.Most provinces have already agreed to follow Ottawa’s proposal. Saskatchewan is the only one threatening not to impose a carbon tax at all.Federal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna said Manitoba will be in good shape for the first few years of the carbon pricing plan.“After that, they’ll need to up their game,” she said in a statement on her Facebook page.Pallister released a legal opinion from a constitutional law expert earlier this month that said Ottawa has the right to demand or impose a carbon tax. But the expert also said Manitoba might be able to defend a lower price in court if its tax were as effective as the federal plan in reducing emissions.The $25 avoids hitting people too hard in the pocketbook, Pallister said, and gives Manitoba credit for the billions of dollars it has spent building its clean-energy hydro-electric grid.The tax will add about five cents a litre to the price of gasoline and also apply to items such as natural gas and coal. A couple with two kids will pay about $356 a year more than they do now, government officials said.Vehicle fuel for farm operations will be exempt and agricultural emissions will not be targeted for specific sector reductions.The tax will raise about $260 million a year and there will be public consultations on how the province should spend the money. Possibilities include income tax cuts, home energy subsidies and spending to help municipal transit systems switch to electric buses.A handful of large industrial emitters, such as the Koch Fertilizer plant in Brandon, will pay an output-based carbon price similar to the plans proposed by the federal and Alberta governments. They will be given a target for emissions and pay the $25-per-tonne levy only on the amounts above that level.The province estimates its carbon tax will cut emissions by about one million megatonnes over the next five years, largely by encouraging people to cut their consumption.But Climate Change Connection, a non-profit Manitoba group, said an extra five cents on a litre of gas is unlikely to convince people to change their driving habits.“Nobody is going really to downsize their vehicle at that rate,” spokesman Curt Hull said.The Pembina Institute, a clean-energy think-tank, said Manitoba’s lower rate is less likely than Ottawa’s plan to convince people and businesses to move away from carbon consumption.“A $50 price is going to drive different behaviours than a $25 price will,” said spokesperson Erin Flanagan.Business and municipal leaders at Friday’s announcement said they recognize the need for a carbon tax and are interested to see where the province will spend its new money.“We do not want to see any of these costs downloaded to municipalities,” said Chris Goertzen, head of the Association of Manitoba Municipalities. read more

Russia signs UNbacked Asian Highway accord

Twenty-six of the 32 countries who last November agreed in principle to the inter-governmental project have now signed, the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), said today.When finished, the Highway will ease border crossing for people, vehicles and goods and give the much-needed benefits to landlocked countries. Although covering by far the most extensive territory Russia will be second to China in the length of Asian-Highway designated routes – 17,000 kilometres compared to 26,000 kilometres. Twenty-three countries signed the agreement at ESCAP’s meeting in Shanghai last week and have now been followed by India and Azerbaijan as well as Russia. Those yet to sign are Bangladesh, the Democratic People’s Republic Korea (DPRK), Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Turkmenistan. ESCAP officials estimate that 83 per cent of the 140,000 kilometres meet the agreed minimum highway standards. An additional $16 million in investment will be needed to upgrade the remainder. read more

BC home sales slide in October but show strength in some regions

Dodge Commercial Slammed As Disgrace on Twitter for Use

The Super Bowl has aired its share of controversial commercial ads over the years, but this one was of a different variety. Fans watching the Philadelphia Eagles face off against the New England Patriots on Super Bowl Sunday caught a 30-second Dodge Ram commercial that was apparently meant to evoke patriotism through its use of a Dr. Martin Luther King speech.But most folks weren’t feeling it and Ram Trucks has issued a response.Airing on Sunday, Feb. 4, the 50th anniversary of King’s “The Drum Major Instinct” speech, the truck advertisement used portions of the speech as images of blue-collar Americans, a dog rescue and a soldier hugging his son were spliced between Ram trucks driving through the terrain.All of this as King began, “If you want to be important, wonderful. If you want to be recognized, wonderful. If you want to be great wonderful. But recognize that he who is greatest among you shall be your servant.”It didn’t sit well with fans.“That was a disrespectful Ram commercial esp during #BlackHistoryMonth,” someone tweeted.Another put it in a more visceral way.“I want to punch that Dodge Ram commercial in the face.”“Are you kidding me?” a tweet read. “This #RAM commercial cannibalizing an MLK sermon to try and sell trucks is a f—— disgrace. #SuperBowl.”Me after that MLK Dodge Ram commercial— Kameron Bonaparte (@KillaKam1947) February 5, 2018 That one Black Marketing intern at Dodge Ram coming into work tomorrow. #SuperBowl— NUFF (@nuffsaidNY) February 5, 2018Yet Ram Trucks says it worked closely with King’s estate to create the ad.“Their representatives were a very important part of the creative approval process every step of the way,” the statement released in the early hours of Monday, Feb. 5 read.Intellectual Properties Management Inc. Eric D. Tidwell, managing director of the organization which handles King’s speeches and intellectual property, added the following.“We found that the overall message of the ad embodied Dr. King’s philosophy that true greatness is achieved by serving others,” the statement from the late King’s son, Dexter King, said. “Thus we decided to be a part of Ram’s ‘Built To Serve’ Super Bowl program.”— RamTrucks (@RamTrucks) February 5, 2018The King Center tweeted earlier that Dexter King’s sister, Bernice King, nor the center itself controls the use of the civil rights martyrs words or likeness for such things.Neither @TheKingCenter nor @BerniceKing is the entity that approves the use of #MLK’s words or imagery for use in merchandise, entertainment (movies, music, artwork, etc) or advertisement, including tonight’s @Dodge #SuperBowl commercial.— The King Center (@TheKingCenter) February 5, 2018 read more

Those sold like cows and goats are known as collaborators,” he said without mentioning anybody’s name at an extended meeting of Dhaka city unit of Gono Forum.A day after Gono Forum’s Sultan Mohammad Mansur took oath as member of parliament violating the party’s decision, party president Kamal Hossain came up with the remarks, according to a party press release.Mansur, who was elected MP from Moulvibazar-2 contesting the 30-December election as a Gono Forum candidate using BNP’s election symbol ‘sheaf of paddy’, was sworn in on Thursday, prompting Gono Forum and Jatiya Oikya Front to expel him from the party and the alliance.Earlier in the day, BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said Mansur belittled himself by joining a parliament which ‘lacks’ people’s representatives.BNP along with Gono Forum and some other parties joined the 30-December election in alliance under the banner of Jatiya Oikya Front.

Block Windows 10 Updates with StopUpdates10

first_imgBlock Windows 10 Updates with StopUpdates10 by Martin Brinkmann on April 06, 2018 in Windows – Last Update: April 03, 2019 – 42 commentsStopUpdates10 is a free program for Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system that modifies some system settings to block Windows Updates on the target device.While it is usually not a good idea to block the installation of updates, as you’d block non-critical and security updates alike, doing so may sometimes be necessary as a temporary measure.The new cumulative nature of updates introduced an all or nothing approach to updates; it is no longer possible to block specific updates with issues. The only option users and administrators have is to block all updates temporarily until issues are resolved.Doing so is far from ideal as you may block important security updates when you block updates.Note: Microsoft changed the update scheme to rollup updates on Windows 7 and Windows 8 systems in 2016 as well (and Server variants).Windows 10 comes with options to delay the installation of updates. You may use the Settings app, Group Policy, or Registry for that.StopUpdates10StopUpdates10 creates Registry keys that are created when you set update related policies to block Windows updates on the device the application is run on.The application checks the current status of the system on launch and displays either the “stop Windows Updates” or “Restore Windows Updates” button in the interface based on that initial test.A click on the stop Windows Updates button writes data to the Registry that blocks updating functionality. You can verify this by opening Windows Updates in the Settings app and clicking on the “check for updates” button. It returns an error when you do so after you block updates.You may restore updating functionality at any time by selecting the “restore Windows Updates” option that the program comes with. Another option that you have is to uninstall the program as it will reset the settings during removal on the system.Administrators may run the program with command line parameters.StopUpdates10.exe /disableStopUpdates10.exe /restoreBoth need to be run with elevated rights.Program updatesThe developer of StopUpdates10 published several program updates since the initial release. Noteworthy new features up to Version 2.5.55 are:Update Windows Defender signatures and block other updates.Option to disable “end of support” notifications on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 PCs.Pause updates until 2099.Option to block Windows Update Medic service (WaasMedicSvc) to block it from reactivating update services.Translations to support various languages such as German, Chinese, Brazilian, Japanese, or Spanish.Closing WordsStopUpdates10 does what it is supposed to do: it blocks the update functionality on Windows 10 devices when it is run.One question remains: who is this for? Administrators may prefer to set the policies manually as it gives them more control and avoids having to run a third-party tool. That leaves Home users; Pro users may configure the policies as well, but it is clear that it is faster with StopUpdates10.I’d say it is a good option for Home users who want to block updates temporarily on the system.Now You: Do you install updates when they come out, or do you wait?Related articlesAre all non-Enterprise Windows 10 users beta testers?Block Windows Updates with Windows 10 Update SwitchMicrosoft releases tool to block Windows 10 updatesRebootBlocker: block automatic reboots on Windows 10Summary12345 Author Rating5 based on 4 votes Software Name StopUpdates10Operating System WindowsSoftware Category AdministrationLanding Page Advertisementlast_img read more
