Acta Marine Assists in UXO Survey Projects

first_imgActa Marine has deployed two vessels on unexploded ordnance (UXO) survey projects for two future European subsea cable routes.“In preparation for offshore wind and power cable projects, operators want to have their proposed cable routes surveyed for potential unexploded ordinance,” said the company’s Commercial Manager Bert de Ruiter.Because of the shallow draft requirements of both projects, Acta Marine has deployed their vessel Offshore Phantom. However, due to a high vessel occupation rate, the company was not able to supply the second vessel from its fleet, and has thus teamed up with Marine Projects Rotterdam who provided the vessel MPR Sounder.UXO surveys are performed by towing gradiometer equipment over the seabed. The equipment is towed at a distance behind the vessel so that it is unaffected by electromagnetic effects of the vessel itself. The survey vessel also needs to be equipped with a Multi Beam Echosounder (MBE), and sonar and acoustics transducers to investigate the surface of the seabed and the positioning of the gradiometer wings.last_img read more

Gibson set for knee surgery

first_img Press Association Everton midfielder Darron Gibson is to undergo surgery after suffering anterior cruciate ligament damage, the club have announced. Gibson was carried off on a stretcher after injuring his knee in a first-half challenge during Ireland’s World Cup qualifier against Kazakhstan in Dublin on Tuesday. The 25-year-old was assessed by club medical staff on his return to Everton and, following confirmation an operation will be required, a lengthy lay-off is likely. center_img A statement on the club’s website read: “The length of time the 25-year-old (will be out for) will be best determined once the surgery is completed. “However, the scans did confirm to Everton’s medical team that no additional damage was sustained to the structure of the right knee, ensuring all treatment and rehabilitation will be focused on repairing the damaged ACL.” The injury is a fresh blow for the player after missing the start of the season with a different knee problem. His return to fitness, to feature in his first Barclays Premier League game of the season against Manchester City on October 5, preceded his recall to the international scene last week. Gibson made himself unavailable after Euro 2012 but the recent departure of manager Giovanni Trapattoni led to a recall for Ireland’s final two World Cup qualifiers by interim boss Noel King. He played 90 minutes against Germany last Friday but lasted just 37 against Kazakhstan, a match which was watched by his club manager Roberto Martinez. After the game King said the injury “wasn’t nice” and now Everton, who have made a positive start to the season mostly in his absence, will have to continue without him. last_img read more

ICC World Cup Loyalty matters most to me: Virat Kohli on MS Dhoni

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced 15-member squad on Monday for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. The team has a blend of both seniors and youngsters, with Virat Kohli to lead the side. And just three days after the announcement, Indian skipper spoke about the importance of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, and a lot more.It is known that Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni have plenty of mutual respect. When Dhoni stepped down as India’s limited overs skipper and Virat Kohli took over, he said Dhoni would forever be his captain. On the field, it is seen that Virat Kohli lets Dhoni guide and make pivotal adjustments to the field. RELATED In an exclusive interview to India Today, Kohli revealed why he had such respect for MS Dhoni.”He (MS Dhoni) is one person who knows the game inside out, who understands the game from ball 1 to ball 300 on the field,” Virat Kohli told India Today. “I won’t say it is a luxury to have him but I am fortunate to have a mind like that from behind the stumps. At the end of the day, I want to be involved in strategy with the team management with Mahi bhai and Rohit.”In the death overs, I know that I know I have to be in the outfield to try and make something work for the team because that’s my nature that I want to do something for the team rather than just be there.”After 30-35 overs, he knows that I will be in the outfield and its on auto mode. Its just about the field placements and bowling changes and we say you know the angles, you know the pace of the pitch and that’s why there is so much trust and respect between the two of us. It’s unfortunate to see so many people going after him,” Virat Kohli told India Today.Virat Kohli debuted for India under MS Dhoni. As a young cricketer, he was nowhere near the complete package he is today and Kohli said he could never forget how MS Dhoni persisted with him and let him bat at the crucial No.3 spot.”For me, loyalty matters the most. When I walked into the team he had the option of trying someone else after a few games,” Kohli said.”Although I grabbed my chances, for me to get that kind of backing, it was very crucial for me. Also, he gave me an opportunity to bat at No.3 because not many youngsters get to play at No.3.” highlightscenter_img Virat Kohli to lead India team in the upcoming World Cup.India will play its first game against South Africa on June 5. Ambati Rayudu and Rishabh Pant missed out from the final squad. last_img read more

Yearning to go pro – Guyana’s Chelsea Edghill is taking it step by step

first_imgTHESE days, Guyana’s table tennis starlet Chelsea Edghill is busy with college but playing way more table tennis now that she’s living in the United States. But a longing to make it into the table tennis big leagues is still one of her foremost desires.The 19-year-old is currently doing her undergraduate in Chemistry at Lindenwood University in Missouri, also functioning on the school’s table tennis team, training under coach David Cabreba. While training in the U.S., she’s able to participate in a lot more tournaments that she ever could while in Guyana, but the national women’s singles champion is hungry for more than that.“There’s only so much that can be done at the college level and I really yearn to play at a professional level,” Edghill acknowledged earlier this week. But of course finances play a major role in holding the Junior Sportswoman-of-the-Year back from her goal.Nonetheless, for the time being her passion for the sport keeps her going.“At times you wonder if it’s all worth it, knowing that you can be so much better, but then you remember the main reason why you’re playing – the love of the game – and that’s what keeps you going,” she expressed. “Eventually I will call it quits but that’s no time soon.”As she bides her time and waits to see just how far she’ll go, in the meantime she’s been putting together quite an impressive rap sheet of performances. So far for the year she’s already placed second in the women’s singles of the College National Districts Competition and had a third place finish in the singles at the College National Regional CompetitionShe won the women’s Open of the South Bend Open table tennis tournament, was a quarterfinalist in the Under-2450 category of the same tournament, and a quarterfinalist at the College Nationals.She’s definitely been busy! Last year she took part in 10 tournaments, including Guyana’s National Table Tennis Championships, where she won the women and women’s Under-21 singles titles.Next month she represents Guyana at the Islamic Solidarity Games and hopes are high to see how well she finishes. But following that, the former Junior Sportswoman-of-the-Year, will be slowing things down a bit, for health reasons.“I’ll be taking a break to examine my shoulder. I was diagnosed with tendonitis of the biceps and rotator cuff, and I would like to get a second opinion,” she explained.last_img read more

Fields impresses in SU’s first scrimmage

first_imgThe Syracuse football team held its first scrimmage of the spring Saturday, and in the process, debuted one of its most talked-about recruits.True freshman quarterback Joe Fields, who graduated high school in three-and-a-half years and enrolled at Syracuse in January, took part in his first organized scrimmage. Fields is competing with three other quarterbacks for the starting job this fall and it was his first chance to distinguish himself from the pack.But more importantly, it was a learning experience for the youngest member of the Orangemen. ‘I think I did pretty good,’ Fields said. ‘I got to see the real speed of the game with everybody competing and going full speed.’Syracuse head coach Paul Pasqualoni and Fields both agreed there was one thing he could definitely improve on after Saturday: his pocket presence.Pasqualoni felt that Fields needed to be more patient in his drop-back passing. When Fields was pressured, he immediately tried to step out of the pocket and run. It gave Fields a chance to display his great quickness and athleticism, but it also showed his impatience.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘He’s going to have to learn that he’s going to have sit in there,’ Pasqualoni said, ‘go through the appropriate footwork and execute the play.’Pasqualoni was also surprised with how quick Fields was. He always knew the Texas recruit had a great 40-yard dash time, but Fields ran even faster under game conditions.Saturday’s scrimmage was just one part of the learning experience since he first arrived on campus. Learning the offense and all the intricacies remains the biggest task, but initially Fields was worried about being accepted on the team.‘My confidence has grown since I first got here,’ Fields said. ‘In the scrimmage, I saw I could really play with these guys. They’re starting to respect me as a leader and a quarterback. They want the best man to win. They want to win football games.’After initially struggling with classes, Fields has adjusted well, making great use of the tutors provided to him to adjust to college classes a semester later than most freshmen.He’s also been helped out by some other members of the team, including Tommy Harris, Stephen McDonald, Steve Franklin and Breyone Evans.‘They try to help me out, see if I need anything, look out for me on the weekends and make sure everything is all right,’ Fields said. ‘They keep me on top of my work and they push me. And when I need to talk to somebody, they’re always there.’Center of attentionThis spring, Matt Tarullo hasn’t been able to catch his breath. Not to worry – the senior offensive lineman didn’t develop asthma this winter. And he hasn’t packed on too much weight.He just has to call the huddle after plays now.Tarullo, a senior who started every game at guard last fall, has switched to center this spring to replace four-year starter Nick Romeo. To replace Tarullo, Steve Franklin will play left guard, while Jason Greene, who platooned with Franklin last year, will stick at right guard. Quinn Ojinnaka will also replace departed tackle Kevin Sampson. ‘It’s a tough move,’ Tarullo said. ‘It’s no joke, man. I finally sort of mastered the guard spot, and then I got bumped over. It’s just a hard position to play.’Tarullo has to adjust to making calls, which his smarts and leadership abilities will allow him to do. He’s also learning different footwork, the toughest of which is moving left and snapping at same time.Tarullo said he misses being able to put his hand down and come off the snap with ‘reckless abandon.’ Instead, he uses his hips and lower back more, which he said is causing more post-practice soreness than usual.Despite the early bumps and bruises, Pasqualoni thinks Tarullo’s in the right spot.‘After the first scrimmage, I can say that making Matt move to center was the right move,’ Pasqualoni said. ‘He’s a leader. Very intelligent.’‘Personally, I’d like him back next to me, because we had really good chemistry,’ senior tackle Adam Terry said. ‘For the best of the team, right now he’s the most capable person to be put in that position.’Opening daySaturday’s scrimmage was situational. The coaches determined what situations they wanted to work on and then scripted plays for them. Finally, for the last 30 minutes, the coaches let the players go under more game-like conditions.The results were mixed, but given there’s only been four practices so far, Pasqualoni was pleased with the results.‘I think the kids did very well,’ Pasqualoni said. ‘We handled all the installations. The older kids were able to do a little bit more. The younger kids did a little bit less.’One player who was not surprisingly impressive was junior tailback Walter Reyes. Pasqualoni said Reyes ran ‘recklessly,’ and Reyes particularly impressed Fields.‘I played with some pretty good backs in high school,’ Fields said. ‘But with how he cuts and starts on the same speed, it’s just crazy. It’s like watching greatness every time.’Two players who looked especially strong were redshirt freshman linebacker Jerry Mackey and freshman defensive tackle Tony Jenkins.‘(Mackey) looks really good there (at linebacker),’ Reyes said. ‘He’s a big physical kid and he’s young. He’s going to be a big-time player when he’s all said and done.’Numbers gameReports have circulated this spring that Walter Reyes could be bestowed with the legendary No. 44 jersey for the fall season. Reyes wants everyone to know that’s not the case – yet, anyway.‘Why’s everybody saying that?’ Reyes asked. ‘That’s all speculation. I wear No. 39. Coach P and I haven’t spoke. I don’t know who started that, but right now I’m wearing my number for now.’That’s not to say he wouldn’t accept the honor, though.‘If I had an opportunity, I would wear it,’ Reyes said. ‘But if not, I’ve done very well with No. 39.’This and That…Some early injuries from camp: Freshman Landel Bembo, attempting to move up the depth chart at wide receiver this spring, pulled his hamstring at practice Monday. Eugene Brown is also suffering from a bruise on his arm…Saturday was the first chance for Steve Gregory to debut at wide receiver. Pasqualoni thought Gregory showcased his speed well, one of the main reasons why he’s been moved to wide receiver for the spring.
