Two of Acta Marine’s DP multicats have been called up for duties on the Zohr natural gas project offshore Egypt.Acta Marine said that the company’s multicats were called up to assist on the Zohr project for the second year running.According to the company, the ultra-shallow draft Coastal Discovery and Coastal Challenger will be supporting shore-end pipelay installation activities. Last year, the Coastal Chariot was the selected vessel to work off Egypt.Acta Marine’s project manager, Sinclair McWilliam, said: “We have four pipe pulling operations planned for the coming months – all taking place in extremely shallow waters. However, these two DP Multicats can work in waters as shallow as 1.5 meters.”Coastal Discovery and Coastal Challenger multicats will also be deployed in anchor handling, and logistics support duties. Also, equipped with a mass flow burial tool, they will also be carrying out seabed leveling.The multicats are multi-purpose work vessels usually built with a simple rectangular pontoon hull and a long open foredeck resembling a small pusher tug.As for the field, Zohr was discovered by Eni in August of 2015 and, with a total potential of 850 billion cubic meters of gas in place, is the largest natural gas field ever discovered in the Mediterranean.The super-giant gas field was started-up in December 2017, only 28 months after its discovery, and is producing around 400 million scf per day. The production will gradually ramp up to reach the plateau by the end of 2019.In related company news, Acta Marine’s new Ulstein SX195 walk to work vessel Acta Auriga, under construction at Ulstein Verft, completed sea trials last month.

B’ville had Formoza finish fourth in 2:03.34.The Warriors swept the throwing events, Antwan Kelly unleashing a discus throw of 152 feet, more than 24 feet ahead of any rival, while Jacob Barnes, third in the discus (123’7”), threw the shot put 47’1” to hold off C-NS’s Andrew Culver, who was second with 46’4”.Aiden Wroblewski added a third-place high jump of 5’10” as C-NS’s Rich Paparo was sixth, clearing 5’6”.

“It was definitely not the result we wanted but the performance was good and we have got to take confidence from that and take that into the away fixture,” the midfielder said.“It is half-time. We cannot be too disappointed. We created a lot of chances. If we create chances and put them away then we have got a chance.”Arsenal travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday but, with a top-four berth seemingly out of reach, Wenger will be focused on which players will feature in the Spanish capital four days later.Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin admitted Atletico are favourites to progress.“Atletico are a team that know how to make you suffer,” he said. “They know how to create chances and score goals.“It’s only 1-1, though, and the tie is still open. We know it will be hard playing in their stadium but there are positives that we can take.”An opportunity missed but we’re still in this tie – let’s learn from last night and stick together until the end ? #WeAreTheArsenal ? pic.twitter.com/ZhzukNbj7s— Arsenal FC (@Arsenal) April 27, 2018Share on: WhatsApp United Kingdom | AFP | Jack Wilshere says Arsenal can take confidence from their Europa League semi-final draw against Atletico Madrid, despite the frustration of conceding a late away goal.With the visitors on the back foot for much of Thursday’s first-leg contest at the Emirates Stadium following Sime Vrsaljko’s early dismissal, the Gunners dominated the game and looked set to take a lead to Madrid next week when Alexandre Lacazette headed them in front.But Antoine Griezmann capitalised on weak defending to convert a late equaliser and secure a 1-1 draw.Diego Simeone’s side have lost only twice at home since moving to the Wanda Metropolitano last summer, one of those a Champions League group game against Chelsea.Atletico have also gone 11 home games without conceding a goal, and Arsenal head to Spain needing two to win the game. But, ahead of what could be Arsene Wenger’s last European match in charge as he prepares for the end of his 22-year reign in the summer, Wilshere believes there is reason for Arsenal to be positive.
Madrid, Spain | AFP | Clock-watching is an integral part of any Olympic Games but even the most eagle-eyed sporting anoraks might be forgiven for missing the fact that Sunday marks 600 days until the start of the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.For most people, it is not actually a particularly significant milestone but for 160 people of 35 nationalities beavering away in a building overlooking a highway in Madrid, the pressure of organising the biggest television show on earth just went up a notch.These are the people of the Olympic Broadcasting Services (OBS), a wing of the International Olympic Committee responsible since 2008 for providing the pictures of every competition which are beamed around the world.The size of the audience is phenomenal as is the money that is generated.Over five billion viewers tuned in for the last Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016 as opposed to 3.4 billion for this year’s football World Cup.Television stations from around the world have dished out more than six billion dollars for the rights to the Games in Tokyo — broadcasting the event is a complex, lucrative business managed from the Spanish capital.“Preparing and planning for the games is an ongoing function, so as we speak we are obviously very close to the finalisation of our plans for Tokyo,” says Yiannis Exarchos, the imposing Greek boss of the OBS.“But we have already started quite detailed planning for the winter games in Beijing (2022) and we have already started engaging with Paris (2024) and Los Angeles (2028).”– A ‘burden’ on host cities –The first time pictures were beamed live from the Olympics was Berlin in 1936. It wasn’t until the 1964 Games, also in Tokyo, that pictures went live around the world.Back then it was the responsibility of the host nation to provide the coverage and that is how it stayed until 2008.“During the games we employ a team of more than 7,000 professionals coming from 90 different countries, we have 1,000 cameras, hundreds of thousands of kilometres of cables,” says Exarchos. “This started to become a big burden for the organising committee as the Games grew bigger and more complex.“As early as the Games of Atlanta (1996), it was made clear that the IOC should do something to support the cities.”So it was that the IOC created OBS in 2001 to provide coverage of all Olympic and Paralympic Games.– Infrastructure –Beijing 2008 marked the OBS’ first outing and it comes as no surprise to discover that Sotiris Salamouris, who is in charge of technology at OBS, was back in Beijing last month to discuss the next Winter Olympics in 2022.“We need to have a good number of discussions with the organising committee in terms of the infrastructures they need to make available for us,” says Salamouris. “The IBC, that is the priority.”The IBC is the International Broadcast Centre, a bustling hub set up in each host city where television channels from all over the world get the signal from OBS to broadcast back home.“We need to work quite early with the organising committee to find this facility, to secure it, to agree about timelines, additional works necessary.“This is what we have begun with Paris,” says Salamouris looking ahead already to the Summer Olympics of 2024.Given that the IOC is based in Lausanne, it may raise an eyebrow to see that the OBS is centred in Madrid.“It does not come from heaven, it comes from (Manolo) Romero,” jokes IOC member Juan Antonio Samaranch Salisachs whose father served 21 years as president of the IOC.A Spaniard and in charge of radio and television coverage of the Games since Mexico in 1968, Romero was appointed head of OBS when it was created and insisted on the headquarters being in Madrid, where he lived.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2
8 Feb 2017 International highlights in 2017 England championship schedule England Golf will host many of the world’s finest amateur players this year when it stages the European Men’s International Amateur Championship at Walton Heath in Surrey. The winner will book a place in the Open Championship at Royal Birkdale and the event will be one of the highlights of a packed calendar, alongside the Brabazon Trophy at Woodhall Spa, the Lincolnshire home of England Golf; and the Men’s Home Internationals at Moortown in Yorkshire. The 2017 England Golf championship season – for which entries have just opened – will feature events for elite amateurs and handicap golfers across the length and breadth of the country. The most southerly will be played at Trevose in Cornwall, and the most northerly at Berwick-upon-Tweed in Northumberland. There will be celebrations along the way – and not just from the winners. Two of the host clubs are marking their 125th anniversaries in 2017: South Staffs, which will host the English senior women’s amateur in May, and Harrogate, which will hold the senior women’s Brenda King Foursomes in October. The much sought-after Brabazon Trophy is the high spot of the early season. It will be played on the renowned Hotchkin course at Woodhall Spa in May and will attract a top-class international field. The title of English men’s open stroke play champion is one of the most prized in amateur golf and past winners include Major champions Sandy Lyle and Charl Schwartzel. It’s followed at the end of June by the European Amateur on the world-class Old Course at Walton Heath (image courtesy Charles Briscoe-Knight). This will be played immediately after the R&A’s Amateur Championship in Kent, creating a ‘double’ which should prove extremely attractive to international players from around the globe. It will be the second time England Golf has hosted this championship, having staged it 25 years ago at Hillside in Lancashire. England’s most recent European champion was Ashley Chesters, who won back-to-back-titles in 2013 and 2014 and took great advantage of his place in The Open of 2015. He tied 12th at St Andrews, springboarding his professional career and he is now playing on the European Tour. The keenly contested Men’s Home Internationals will be played in August at Moortown, which hosted the first Ryder Cup on British soil. England will take on the challenge of Scotland, Ireland and Wales and bid to regain the trophy for the first time since 2013 – when the championship was also held in Yorkshire, at Ganton. The England women’s team will defend their Home Internationals on home ground at Little Aston in Staffordshire, in a championship run by the newly merged R&A and the LGU. Other key dates for leading women golfers include the English women’s amateur at Lindrick in Yorkshire, and the increasingly international English women’s open stroke play at Woodhall Spa in August. Woodhall Spa will play a prominent role in England Golf championships for 2017 and will also host Golf Week, the showcase for a series of handicap events. The finalists in six team and individual events will be invited to Woodhall Spa to play off for their titles and be treated to the full English championship experience. England Golf runs more events for handicap golfers than for elite players and other tournaments for club golfers will be played throughout the season. These include the PING Family and Women’s Fourball tournaments, the Schools’ Team Championship, the Abraham Trophy to find England’s most improved girl golfer and the women’s Par Three championship.

Facebook12Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by Washington Department of Fish and WildlifeOLYMPIA – Clam diggers can look forward to some of the best tides of the year during a six-day razor clam dig set to begin Tuesday (Dec. 11) at Twin Harbors, then expand to include openings at Long Beach, Mocrocks and Copalis beaches later in the week.The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) approved the dig after marine toxin tests at all four beaches confirmed the clams are safe to eat.No digging will be allowed at any of those beaches until after noon.“The position of the moon in December always generates favorable tides for digging razor clams,” said Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shellfish manager. “Unfortunately, the weather isn’t always as cooperative, so diggers should dress for cold, wet conditions.”The dig at Twin Harbors will run six days, extending from Tuesday (Dec. 11) through Sunday (Dec. 16). The three other beaches will open for digging on the following schedule and evening low tides:Dec. 11, Tues., 4:51 p.m., -1.1 ft., Twin HarborsDec. 12, Wed., 5:40 p.m., -1.6 ft., Twin HarborsDec. 13, Thurs., 6:29 p.m., -1.9 ft., Twin HarborsDec. 14, Fri., 7:15 p.m., -1.8 ft., Twin Harbors, Mocrocks, Long Beach, CopalisDec. 15, Sat., 8:01 p.m., -1.6 ft., Twin Harbors, Mocrocks, Long Beach, CopalisDec. 16, Sun., 8:47 p.m., -1.0 ft., Twin Harbors, Mocrocks, Long BeachAyres noted that the best digging occurs one to two hours prior to low tide.Clam diggers are limited to 15 razor clams per day, and are required to keep the first 15 clams they dig. Each digger’s clams must be kept in a separate container.All diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable 2012-13 fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach. Licenses, ranging from a three-day razor clam license to an annual combination fishing license, are available on WDFW’s website at https://fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov and from license vendors around the state.Information about beach locations and additional digs proposed in the weeks ahead is available on WDFW’s website at http://goo.gl/ooxEO.
Missing US$5M GTT shares…rather than 6-year pursuit of Hong Kong-based companyWith the confusion that accompanied Guyana’s attempts to collect the outstanding US$5 million from the sale of the State’s 20 per cent stake in GTT, some persons are wondering why recourse was not previously made to an arbitrator or even the courts. According to a source close to the original deal that saw Hong Kong Golden Telecom Company (HKGTC) snagging the shares, Guyana would have been better placed to collect the outstanding money had it gone to arbitration. The source made it clear that the $5 million was never paid at the time Minister of State, Joseph Harmon returned from China and Government said it was.“When [National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited] NICIL first advertised GTT [shares], the highest public tender was $7 million. Through Ambassador David Dabydeen, they were able to get this company to buy the 20 per cent. They pushed a high price; they got US$30 million – US$25 million upfront,” the source said, adding that after two years passed and the outstanding money was not paid, the NICIL Board began discussions on how to get the money.“The money was never paid, so when Harmon went to China and came back, and said it was paid and then they found out it wasn’t paid and then they were negotiating, they should have gone to arbitration. I don’t know what has happened, but nothing NICIL did was improper. And they got very good value, because up to (2016) very little in dividends was being paid (by GTT).”The sharesNICIL had disposed of its 20 per cent shares back in 2012. The outstanding US$5 million was to be paid by October 22, 2014, but it was never paid despite several written requests from NICIL.Minister Harmon and NICIL legal counsel Natalia Seepersaud had subsequently travelled to China with the intention of collecting the money, but were informed that the money was already paid.Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman had later announced that Harmon was able to retrieve some documents which showed that the monies were paid. But following the controversy this revelation sparked, NICIL had refuted that the monies were ever paid.To make matters worse, it was reported that former Ambassador to China, David Dabydeen, had arranged a waiver of the payment with the Chinese company. This claim was promptly denied by former President Donald Ramotar.The dealIn January of this year, NICIL Chairman, Dr Maurice Odle had told Guyana Times that an interim agreement between the State and Hong Kong Golden Telecom Company was in full force.“An interim agreement has been made to accept three million in the first instance, of the $5 million [US] that is owed,” Dr Odle had explained. “Negotiations had been continuing with respect to the remaining $2 million. The situation remains that negotiations are in place, (so) those negotiations are (still) ongoing.”The next month, NICIL CEO Horace James had said that talks were wrapping up. He had also been optimistic of a March deadline for the negotiations to end.
30 January 2004It’s not a year ago that a hand injury forced an early end to Jonty Rhodes’ international career. What’s the best ever fielder in the game of cricket getting up to now? Well he’s not sitting on his hands, as Brad Morgan discovered when he bumped into his old adversary the other day. There’s surfing to be done, after all, and banking – yep, banking – and have you heard of 20/20 cricket?Besides writing for SouthAfrica.info, I present the sports news on a weekday radio breakfast show. It’s tough going, getting up at 3.40am every morning and trying to function like a regular human being thereafter, but such a life does have its perks.Like one morning recently when one of South Africa’s favourite sons, Jonty Rhodes, was the in-studio guest. Jonty Rhodes: a story the figures don’t tell It was great for me because I have known Jonty since school days. We’re the same age, and both played provincial schools cricket and hockey – though only one of us went on to far greater heights. Being up against Jonty, whether he was representing Maritzburg College or Natal, made winning a very tough proposition.Nonetheless, he has remained a down-to-earth, friendly guy and it is always a pleasure to cross paths with him. As I told my mother after chatting to him in the studio: he makes it feel as if it was just yesterday that you last spoke to him.‘I’ve never seen a fat surfer’Jonty looks a little different these days. His hair is a minor mop, and he has a good tan. Very Durban surfer, really, which would be an accurate guess if you didn’t know any better. You see, Jonty is trying his hand at surfing nowadays.“I’ve never seen a fat surfer”, he tells me.While playing for the Proteas, says Jonty, it was easy to keep fit, running between the wickets and fielding. Now he needs to do something else to keep fit. He tells me he’s never been a guy for the gym, and had considered triathlon, but that it sounded like too much hard work.So, surfing it is.He has a phobia about sharks, but says he has worked through it. He started out on a longboard, but has since progressed to a mini-Malibu, a board that is shorter than a longboard, but is not yet a short board.“I’m going to have to start going down to the beach at 6:30”, he says.Executive JontyThe reason he offers up that information is, I think, very exciting for South African cricket. “I signed for Standard Bank yesterday”, he elaborates. “I’ll be working under Errol Stewart.”Stewart was Rhodes’ long-time teammate in the KwaZulu-Natal cricket team, a diligent guy who managed to qualify as an attorney while playing both provincial cricket for the KZN Dolphins and provincial rugby for the Natal Sharks.Using his B.Com degree from the University of Natal, Pietermaritzburg, Jonty has joined Standard Bank as an account executive. He’ll be handling 50 to 80 corporate clients, and is really excited about the new challenge.He says he could have done golf days and lunches, a “token” doing the speaking circuit, but, he reckons, in five years new guys would come along out of the cricket ranks and then he would be done. Personally, I think he underestimates his status in the eye of the public, but that’s my opinion, and it’s his that counts in this instance.“My degree was fairly general”, he explains, “but it had a focus on marketing and advertising.” So, how is it going to work with his new job?“It’s three-fold”, Jonty explains. Firstly, there are those 50 to 80 corporate clients. Then, he’s going to be helping out with cricket sponsorship. Standard Bank is, at present, the national sponsor of one-day international cricket.20/20 cricketHowever, in just two months’ time, they’re going to be introducing 20/20 cricket to South Africa.20/20 cricket was introduced in the United Kingdom, and is what it says: 20 overs a side. It proved to be a roaring success, especially in attracting young people to the game. “With 20/20 cricket, I signed more autographs than in a four-month tour of South Africa”, Jonty says. But, he adds, the aim is not just to attract children, but to make it a family affair.While over in the UK, playing county cricket for Gloucestershire, Rhodes had the opportunity to speak to the men who marketed the game there, so he has returned to South Africa with some good ideas.Besides Standard Bank, the United Cricket Board of South Africa and television sports channel Supersport have pledged their support for 20/20 cricket.The run-out that astounded the cricketing world. (Photo: Jonty.co.za)The man many regard as the greatest fielder of all time is also excited about what the game means for South African cricket. It’s a great way to fast-track players, he feels, because there is a big gap between provincial and international cricket. It teaches players to perform under pressure, because in the abbreviated form of the game every single delivery counts.Surprisingly, Rhodes reckons that 20/20 cricket is not his game. He explains that he was a run-a-ball kind of batsman – “I think I had a strike rate of about 80 in 235 one-day internationals”, he says (80.91, actually) – but 20/20 cricket requires more than that. “I felt almost inadequate”, he says.Partnerships the secretSo, what is the secret to the game? “Partnerships”, says Rhodes without hesitation. Just because it’s 20 overs of batting only, batsmen shouldn’t think they can just bash because, he enlightens me, teams often get bowled out in that time.His overseas partner at Gloucestershire, Australia’s Ian Harvey, was a superb 20/20 player. “Because he could hit straight and pull.” That’s another of the secrets to the game, according to Jonty.It even led to a change in his fielding position. Due to the importance of boundaries and the fact that many batsmen chose to hit the ball in the air, Jonty played a lot of the time at long on and long off, protecting the boundary from well struck straight shots!Thankfully, this new form of the game keeps Jonty Rhodes involved in South African cricket.The third part of Rhodes’ new job with Standard Bank involves children. The bank wants to use him for marketing to youngster. I reckon they’re on a winning wicket; Jonty’s feats, and the way he has lived his life, is the kind of example any kid would look up. A lot of us adults, too.Which leads me on to another possible career. As our in-studio guest, Jonty read a sports bulletin I had prepared. To tell the truth, he wasn’t great, and I didn’t feel he posed a threat to my career. However, as host of show he was very good. He drew a great response from listeners, and the show flowed well when he did his thing.Maybe you want to consider radio, Jo?
