Jackhammers fumes turn BC familys Panama Canal cruise into construction zone

first_imgVICTORIA – The noise of pounding jackhammers and the smell of fumes are the unwanted memories of a spring-break cruise through the Panama Canal for a woman and her family from the Victoria area.Cecilia Jenkins said a major construction project began moments after the Norwegian Cruise Line vessel left a dock in Miami, and noise, fumes and dust from the work lasted the entire voyage on the Norwegian Sun.“Grinding, jackhammering,” she said Tuesday. “Lots of noise. Lots of dust.”The voyage ended on Saturday in Los Angeles.A Facebook group called Panama Canal Sun was launched four days before the ship docked. By Tuesday, it had 330 members and some of them had posted pictures and video of renovations taking place on the ship. Several others say the cruise line didn’t disclose the renovations beforehand.Jenkins said the cruise line company provided a letter date March 27 apologizing to the passengers.“We understand that some of these enhancements have affected your experience with us, and we apologize for the inconvenience,” says the letter.In a statement on Tuesday, Norwegian Cruise Line said it is making a “significant investment” in its ships, including the Norwegian Sun.“At Norwegian Cruise Line, we continuously aim to offer the best vacation experience for all our guests,” it says.“While we do our utmost to minimize any impact on the guest experience when these enhancements are taking place, we recognize that in this situation our guests have experienced some inconvenience.”Jenkins said repairs on several of the vessel’s decks and running track started almost immediately.“I don’t think you should be doing any of this on a vacation, especially without telling us,” she said, adding she felt most comfortable when she left the vessel to explore stops in Central America and Mexico.Jenkins said her teenage daughter and husband were with her on the cruise, which cost an estimated $10,000. Her father-in-law and his friend also took the voyage.last_img read more

CNQ partners in significant South Africa offshore oil and gas find

first_imgCanadian Natural owns 20 percent of the joint venture, Total holds 45 percent, Qatar Petroleum owns 25 percent and Main Street, a South African consortium, has 10 percent.Canadian Natural says its portion of the cost of the exploration well in the Outeniqua Basin, 175 kilometres off the southern coast of South Africa, is covered by its agreements with the other partners.Total drilled a first well into the block in 2014 but had to plug and suspend it due to mechanical issues on the drilling rig. The exploration block covers an area of 19,000 square kilometres, with water depths ranging from 200 to 1,800 metres. CALGARY, A.B. – Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. says its partner in a deepwater offshore drilling project in South Africa is reporting a “significant gas condensate” discovery.The Calgary-based company best known for its Alberta oilsands production traded an ownership stake in the offshore exploration block known for its challenging sea conditions to Total S.A. in 2013, in return for the French oil giant taking over as operator and covering initial exploration costs.Kevin McLachlan, Total’s senior vice-president of exploration, says in a news release that the discovery is “a new world-class gas and oil play,” adding the company and its partners plan to acquire 3D seismic scans this year, followed by up to four more exploration wells.last_img read more

World Cup Moroccan Fans Boo Saudi Fans Insult Turki Al Sheikh

Rabat – Moroccan fans in Russia did not hide their anger towards Saudi fans in St. Petersburg, Russia. Saudi Arabia not only voted for United 2026, but also campaigned against Morocco in the vote for the host of the 2026 World Cup.Besides setting the mood, chanting, and dancing to support Morocco for its first game against Iran, Friday, June 15, at 3 p.m. (Moroccan time), Moroccan fans did not forget to remind Saudi Arabians, especially the president of the Saudi Arabian Football Federation, Turki Al Sheikh, of their betrayal by booing and insulting them.The fans perfectly represent the mood of millions of Moroccans taken aback by Saudi Arabia’s decision to vote for the trio bid of the United States, Canada, and Mexico, to organize the 2026 World Cup. While Moroccans were hoping all Arab countries would vote for Morocco’s bid, they were surprised to see that seven Arab countries voted for the United 2026 bid. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Kuwait, Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq all voted against the Moroccan bid.Upon the announcement of the final results of the vote, Moroccans took massively to social media to lash out at Saudi Arabia for “betraying” Morocco and “stabbing it” in the back. Saudi Arabia did not only vote for the United 2026, but it also embarked on a last minute campaign to pressure many Muslim and Asian countries to vote for the North American bid. read more

UN rights expert calls for independent probe into mob killings in Cambodia

In a statement released in Geneva, Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative for human rights in Cambodia, Peter Leuprecht, also urged a thorough probe of the recent grenade attack on villagers peacefully protesting renewed activities in the Pheapimex concession in Pursat province. The 13 November incident involved objections to the work of Pheapimex, a timber company. The envoy, who wrapped up a visit to Cambodia on Sunday, appealed to the authorities to “listen to the people and to be responsive to their concerns.” In a related development, Mr. Leuprecht today released a report on the human rights dimensions of land concessions in Cambodia. In a foreword to the document, he states that companies which have been given land rights display “little or no regard for the welfare of the people, and contribute little to State revenue.” read more

Roger Federer Wins 7th Wimbledon Ties Sampras Reclaims 1

WIMBLEDON, England — Once the Centre Court roof was closed, nothing could stop Roger Federer from winning his record-tying seventh Wimbledon title.The 30-year-old Federer finally equaled Pete Sampras’ record at the All England Club, and won his 17th Grand Slam title overall, by beating Andy Murray 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 Sunday.“It has worked out so many times over the years here at Wimbledon that I play my best in the semis and the finals,” Federer said. “I couldn’t be more happy. It feels great being back here as the winner.”Once Murray’s forehand landed wide on match point, Federer collapsed to the grass with tears welling in his eyes. He got up quickly and shook hands with Murray at the net.Up in the players’ box, Federer’s wife and twin daughters cheered and smiled as he took his seat to await yet another Wimbledon trophy presentation.“When the roof closed, he played unbelievable tennis,” Murray said.Federer is now 17-7 in Grand Slam finals, including 7-1 at Wimbledon. Murray dropped to 0-4 in major finals, with three of those losses coming against Federer.“It’s amazing. It equals me with Pete Sampras, who’s my hero,” Federer said. “It just feels amazing.”Besides Sampras, 1880s player William Renshaw also won seven Wimbledon titles, but he did it at a time when the defending champion was given a bye into the following year’s final.Sunday’s match was the first Wimbledon singles final to be played with the roof closed. The roof was first used at the All England Club in 2009.Britain has been waiting 76 years for a homegrown men’s champion at the All England Club, and the expectations on Murray were huge.Thousands of fans watched the match on a huge screen on “Murray Mount,” but left the grounds still waiting for a British winner.Inside the stadium, Prince William’s wife, Kate, sat in the Royal Box along with David Beckham, British Prime Minister David Cameron and a slew of former Wimbledon champions.Many of them left a bit disappointed as well.“Everybody always talks about the pressure of playing at Wimbledon, how tough it is,” Murray said. “It’s not the people watching. They make it so much easier to play. The support has been incredible, so thank you.”With his victory, Federer regained the No. 1 ranking from Novak Djokovic, allowing him to equal Sampras’ record of 286 weeks as the top-ranked player.“I never stopped believing. I started playing more, even though I have a family,” Federer said. “It all worked out. I got great momentum, great confidence and it all came together. So it’s a magical moment for me.”Murray is coached by eight-time Grand Slam champion Ivan Lendl, the only other man who lost his first four major finals.At the start of the match, Murray was the one dictating play and winning the tough points. He broke Federer in the first game of the first set, and then broke again late before serving it out. It was the first set Murray has won in his four major finals.The second set was much more even, and both had early break points that they couldn’t convert. Federer, however, finally got it done in the final game of the set, hitting a backhand drop volley that Murray couldn’t get to.Both held easily to start the third set, but then the rain started abruptly, suspending play for 40 minutes. Shortly after they returned, it turned into a one-man show.With Federer leading 3-2, they played a 26-point, 20-minute game in which Federer finally converted his sixth break point — after Murray had slipped on the grass three times. Federer lost only five points on his serve in that set.Source: AP, ESPN read more

Cocaine in gas cylinder 4 years jail each for duo found

Mark Gomes and Mohammed KadirMore than three months after their accomplice pleaded guilty and was sentenced to four years in Prison, two men were on Tuesday found guilty and jailed for being in possession of 2.25kg of cocaine -which ranks found hidden in a gas cylinder- on March 29, 2018.Mark Gomes, 33, and Mohamed Kadir, 38, were jointly charged for the offence when they appeared before Chief Magistrate, Ann McLennan at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.The court heard that on the day in question, two vehicles parked in the vicinity of Sheriff Street, Georgetown were being observed by ranks attached to the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU).At about 19:45h, the ranks allegedly noticed Kadir exiting one of the motorcars, fetching a yellow gas cylinder. He reportedly moved into the other vehicle that was reportedly being occupied by Mark Gomes and Ryan Fowler (accomplice).The three suspects were stopped by the investigators who conducted a search, resulting in the illegal substance being discovered.The two accused were given the opportunity to tell their side of the story before the Court and in unsworn statements, Kadir first explained that he was called by Gomes to meet a friend that was encountering mechanical issues on his vehicle.He told the court that when that friend (Ryan Fowler) showed up at a shop on Sheriff Street, Georgetown with Gomes as a passenger, CANU ranks reportedly pounced on them.According to Kadir, he was unaware as to why he was arrested until much later.He claimed that Fowler had told him and Gomes that the drugs found belonged only to him.Gomes’s story corroborated what was said by Kadir.Their attorneys Glenn Hanoman and Mark Waldron in summing up their case stated that the Prosecution’s case is based on the reliability and credibility of one witness and called for a no case submission.However, in her rebuttal CANU’s Prosecutor, Konyo Sandiford said that the case against the defendants was proven beyond a reasonable doubt.The two were sentenced to serve four years in prison, each.Only four days ago, the father of Mark Gomes, Andre Gomes, called “Zipper,” was freed of drug trafficking charges by Magistrate Leron Daly, who ruled that the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) had been unable to support their allegations against Gomes with enough evidence to warrant a conviction.Gomes, 57, of Craig Street, Campbellville, Georgetown, had been arraigned on trafficking in narcotics charges after a search carried out at his residence had allegedly unearthed 992 grams of cocaine, a quantity of cash, jewelry, and other valuables.

Sky rail fury

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram As the Andrews government defended its record on the level of public consultation over its $1.6 billion sky rail project for southeast Melbourne this week, details emerged of a heated confrontation between Small Business Minister Philip Dalidakis and Oakleigh councillor Theo Zographos at a community consultation session.The meeting, held in Hughesdale last Saturday, was convened to gather community feedback on the plan to replace nine level crossings on the Cranbourne-Pakenham line by building three sections of elevated ‘sky rail’.During the meeting, Councillor Zographos was prevented from using his mobile phone to record video of the event by Mr Dalidakis in an exchange that Zographos recorded.The footage, later supplied to the Herald Sun, prompted southern Metro Liberal MP David Davis to call for Premier Daniel Andrews to reprimand his minister for “intimidation”.“Phil Dalidakis either wants to be a government minister or a nightclub bouncer, but he can’t be both,” Mr Davis said.Speaking to Neos Kosmos, Mr Dalidakis defended his actions, saying that Cr Zographos was the one doing the intimidating by filming people without their consent. “Artist’s impression of Murrumbeena sky rail station. IMAGE COURTESY LEVEL CROSSING REMOVAL AUTHORITY.For Theo Zographos, the local Liberal campaigner against sky rail, to film residents talking to me without their knowledge or permission is creepy and inappropriate. I am a public figure, they are not. “I asked him to either get their permission or leave. Nothing more, nothing less.”Mr Zographos rebuffed the minister’s version of events as “laughable”, saying the meeting’s public nature allowed anyone to document proceedings.“It is obvious Mr Dalidakis didn’t want scrutiny of the sham consultation process. There were at least half a dozen other people taking photos yet Mr Dalidakis’ chose to threaten only one,” said Zographos.“When Labor is desperate it is unfortunate that they engage in this utterly inappropriate behaviour. This is not Stalinist Russia.”The sky rail plan will see an 8km rail-track run nine metres above ground between Caulfield and Dandenong, which the government claims will open up 11 MCGs’ worth of space for parks, car parking and sporting facilities.Despite fierce criticism from planning experts and residents, on Tuesday Premier Daniel Andrews defended the government’s record on consultation, saying there had been a “respectful” approach to affected residents.The state opposition says the community has been kept in the dark over a plan they say will lead to increased noise and “ugly” graffiti-strewn viaducts running through established suburbs along the Dandenong corridor.last_img read more

Nokia ne laisserait pas tomber Symbian

first_imgNokia ne laisserait pas tomber SymbianSelon une photographie floue qui a fait surface récemment sur le web, schématisant l’évolution de Symbian sur des smartphones, des rumeurs trainent sur l’éventuelle sortie d’un téléphone Nokia fonctionnant sous ce système d’exploitation.Avec iOs et Android, Symbian apparaît comme un système largement dépassé et Nokia le sait. La firme s’est elle-même engagée avec Microsoft pour les Windows Phone pour survivre sur le marché des smartphones. Or, la venue de cette photo de mauvaise qualité laisse planer certaines suppositions. On peut y déchiffrer une feuille de route à propos de deux prochaines versions Symbian: Carla et Donna. La première version serait la 8.0 du navigateur, gérant le Dolby Surround et le NFC (communication en champ proche) et incluant de meilleurs Widgets.

Morrissey Talks New Album Future Of Etienne Records

first_imgNews The singer previews his new studio album, ‘Low In High School,’ which is due out Nov. 17 via his Etienne Records imprintBrian HaackGRAMMYs Nov 14, 2017 – 12:42 pm Fresh off a hero’s welcome in Los Angeles this past weekend, GRAMMY nominated alt-pop songsmith Morrissey is making ready to drop his 11th solo album, Low In High School, this week.”It’s a bit like a dating agency where two people might seem right for each other, and so it is with music and words,” Morrissey told Billboard about his approach to songwriting for his new album. “As long as words behave on the page, then the song works. I don’t ever feel that it’s time to be different or new because I feel that I’ve always had so much to say.”The English singer built his own record label, Etienne, to release and distribute Low In High School, in part to avoid the sort of public meltdown that plagued his previous relationship with Harvest Records, ultimately resulting in his 2014 LP, World Peace Is None Of Your Business, being dropped by the label just three weeks after its release.Speaking on the future plans for his new label, Morrissey explained, “Whatever happens in the world, music is for eternity. It’s a great pleasure and very healthy to produce and create, and I’d love to expand Etienne and sign up music that counts.”Low In High School is slated for release on Friday, Nov. 17.  Morrissey’s 2017 U.S. tour will continue through Dec. 10, and tickets are still available from some shows from his website.UK Music Consumers Gravitate Toward Media You Can TouchRead more Twitter Morrissey Sets The Scene For ‘Low In High School’ morrissey-talks-new-album-future-etienne-records Email Facebook Morrissey Talks New Album, Future Of Etienne Records last_img read more

Google to Break Ground on LifeProlonging Research Facility

first_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Register Now » 2 min read September 4, 2014center_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Roughly one year after tendering a founding investment in biotech company Calico, Google is breaking ground on a brand new Bay Area research facility with a lofty life-prolonging aim.To this end, Calico has also forged a partnership with a Chicago-based biopharmaceutical company called AbbVie, in order to develop drugs that will tackle aging and age-related diseases such as neurodegeneration and cancer. A forthcoming state-of-the-art research and development center will house this secretive and vastly experimental work.Each company will contribute between $250 million and $1.5 billion in funding, according to a press release. The affiliation will call for Google-backed Calico’s far-out findings, spearheaded over the next five years, to be eventually tested for commercial viability by AbbVie. “Both parties will share costs and profits equally,” the companies said.Related: If You Could, Would You Want to Live Forever? Google Thinks You Might“Last fall, [Google co-founder] Larry Page and I announced Calico, a new company designed to take the long-term view on aging and illness,” wrote Calico chief executive Arthur Levinson in a Google+ post announcing the collaboration yesterday. “Our goal is to make progress on a very basic challenge: how to help people stay healthier for longer.”Levinson, who also serves as Apple’s chairman of the board, created Calico alongside Google’s Page, who notably suffers from a rare nerve condition that affects his ability to speak.Calico is by no means Google’s only stab into the health-care sector.
