Salvage services were requested by the owner, and the fire was swiftly brought under control and has been extinguished.“Now, General Average is formally declared by the owners of the vessel,” ONE said today.NYK has appointed Greece-based Oceana Marine Claims & Adjusting and Marine Adjusting Solutions as the average adjustor, which “will be responsible for coordinating the collection of General Average securities and all documentation required from parties with interest in cargo onboard, containers, vessel, and vessel fuel”.The 4,900 teu vessel was en route from Vancouver and around 50 miles offshore from Monterey when the fire started.The US Coast Guard responded to a request for assistance and said that its crew brought the fire under control as tugs towed the ship towards Oakland, its destination port.According to the eeSea liner database, the vessel is one of eleven 4,800-5,100 teu ships deployed by ONE on the AL5 service – which connects the west coast of North America with the US east coast and Europe via the Panama Canal.CMA CGM is a slot-charterer on the service, which it markets as the California Bridge.
GE Oil & Gas announced it has completed the assembly of the final group of subsea production trees for the Chevron-operated Gorgon Project, one of the world’s largest natural gas projects located off the coast of Western Australia.Subsea trees are a key component of a subsea gathering system, consisting of various assemblies of valves, spools and fittings, used to monitor and control the flow of production wells. They also manage the fluids and gas that are injected into subsea wells.At twice the capacity of those previously manufactured by GE, the 20 subsea trees are the first 7-inch, full bore trees that GE Oil & Gas has ever produced. The trees were specifically designed to manage production from the high rate gas field in the Gorgon development.The trees were designed, assembled and prepared for shipment in Aberdeen and Montrose in Scotland. The controls modules incorporated within the tree were designed, manufactured and assembled in Nailsea in the U.K., while GE’s operation in Norway provided the connection systems.The final shipment of trees has now begun its journey to Western Australia and upon arrival, it will be transported to GE’s Jandakot services and training facility in Perth for pre-installation testing before being deployed in the Greater Gorgon fields where it will operate at depths of up to 1,350 meters (4,429 feet).The Gorgon Project involves the development of the Greater Gorgon Area gas fields, including the Gorgon and Jansz-Io fields, located between 130 and 220 kilometres off the northwest coast of Western Australia. The Gorgon Project also is the largest single resource project in Australia’s history.GE’s subsea trees supply contract is part of a series of agreements with Chevron, valued at a combined $1.7 billion, to deliver subsea production equipment and advanced turbomachinery as well as long-term services to support the Gorgon Project.GE Oil & Gas’ Subsea Systems business has reliably served the offshore market for more than 50 years and is at the forefront of global subsea field development, with advanced system integration capabilities and more than 7,000 systems installed worldwide.Press Release, September 05, 2013

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The Southeastern Conference office gave the LSU-Arkansas Thanksgiving weekend “rivalry” the Boot entering this season in order to give LSU-Texas A&M The Boost.LSU does not want to play at home on Thanksgiving, preferring the Friday or Saturday after the holiday. But Texas A&M sure does like Turkey night football. The Tigers will learn that on Thursday at about 6:30 p.m. when the Tigers (7-4, 3-4 SEC) and Aggies (7-4, 3-4) kick off on ESPN in what may well become a real rivalry.“Any time you move a game to the end of the year, I think you’re insinuating something there, particularly on Thanksgiving,” Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said. “We’ll see.”This one makes more sense than LSU-Arkansas, which featured many good games, but it was never really a rivalry. It was a little too packaged by the SEC, and that trophy became Thanksgiving’s version of a Christmas sweater or fruitcake. No thanks.Once after LSU beat Arkansas in Tiger Stadium to keep The Boot, LSU’s players were so excited they left it on the field for hours. And no one stole it. “It’s a boot,” LSU coach Les Miles once said. I still say the LOSER of the Arkansas-LSU game should have to keep it. Win the game, lose The Boot.LSU and Texas A&M have a more interesting history. They played every season from 1986-95 before the Aggies joined the SEC whereas LSU and Arkansas had not played in the regular season since 1956 when the Hogs joined the SEC. And College Station, Texas, is much easier to get to than Fayetteville, Ark., and there’s an inviting stop along the way in Houston, which culturally and LSU alumni-wise could be in Louisiana.“Proximity usually weighs into what becomes a rivalry,” Sumlin said. West-East interstate travel tends to be quicker than North-South, and there are many more players between New Orleans and Houston than between New Orleans and Little Rock, Ark. “There are a lot of guys from a region of about 300 miles playing in this game for both teams,” Sumlin said.This is why this Thanksgiving dish will forever have a recruiting roux to it. LSU recruits against Texas A&M much more than against Arkansas. “They’re after a couple of our top guys. We’re after a couple of their top guys,” Sumlin said. “One game for some people usually doesn’t matter. Some guys it does. You never know.”So let the newest Thanksgiving weekend college football rivalry begin. Just do not come up with a trophy. Here are five things to watch other than your waistline: 5. BOWL REWARD A win for either 7-4 team could enhance the bowl prize. Then again, it might not matter. Each team is headed to a second line bowl regardless. And remember, head-to-head wins and a better record by only a game often mean little toward bowl destination. 4. LSU SECONDARY The Tigers are No. 2 in the nation in pass efficiency defense with a 97.6 rating based on just 164 yards allowed a game, a below .500 completion percentage allowed and nine interceptions. Texas A&M is No. 1 in the SEC and 10th nationally in pass offense with 321.2 yards a game behind recently promoted freshman starter Kyle Allen. Allen has done very well, but his competition has been Louisiana-Monroe, Auburn and Missouri. LSU’s defense will prove better. 3. YOUTH Both teams are rebuilding and use a lot of underclassmen. So even though both have had disappointing seasons, most players will be playing for now. “This team is not really ready to put next year in the near vision,” LSU coach Les Miles said. 2. BRANDON HARRIS LSU’s backup quarterback will take significant snaps. Really. This time, it will happen. And it’s about time. 1. LSU RUN GAME The Tigers are No. 6 in the SEC and No. 33 nationally in rushing offense with 204.5 yards a game – their only decent offensive category. Texas A&M is 104th in the nation and 13th in the SEC against the run, allowing 209 yards a game. LSU will control the game with the run.PREDICTION: LSU 24, Texas A&M 20. LSU’s offensive line will handle A&M’s defensive line, and the Tigers’ secondary will contain the Aggies’ passing attack just enough.Happy Thanksgiving.
A Christmas Fantasy Parade2211112 Share This!Big, festive week at Disneyland! Runners descend upon the resort for what will be the last runDisney event out west for a while, and Christmas festivities are officially underway! Read on to learn more in this week’s Disneyland preview.Special Events and NotesPhoto by Disney PhotoPass via (clockwise from left) @Niekon, @Snacob95, @RaisingLasVegas, @Nate_WDWLots of activity this week at Disneyland! First and foremost, expect a lot of guests at the resort for Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend. The 10K is held on Saturday, and there will be a half marathon on Sunday morning to wrap up the event. The races add a wonderful energy to the resort, but they also bring a lot of people to the area, even if they aren’t hitting the attractions. Between the runners and the people there to support them, the area may feel more crowded than the crowd levels (which are based on attraction wait times) would suggest. Notably, this will be the last runDisney event at Disneyland for the foreseeable future; it was recently announced that there would not be any events in 2018 on account of the construction for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and other resort improvements.There have been holiday decorations percolating up into the resort since the day after Halloween, but the holiday season is now OFFICIALLY underway at Disneyland. The daytime parade has been replaced by A Christmas Fantasy Parade, Believe… In Holiday Magic takes over for the evening fireworks, and its a small world Holiday is now open for the season. Make sure you check out Rikki’s preview to learn more about what you can expect for the holidays.CrowdsCrowds will be notably higher this weekend for the Superhero Half Marathon event, with Saturday having the highest crowds of the week. The remainder of the week is far more modest.Full details, including park-by-park crowd levels, are available on our Crowd Calendar.WeatherRemarkably pleasant and consistent weather all week long. Highs in the mid-70s, lows in the mid-50s, and dry. Put another way, should be a gorgeous week in Southern California.As always, it’s wise to double check the weather as the day of your visit approaches. Check out the most up-to-date forecast here.ShowsReally light show schedule during the week, although both the Christmas parade and fireworks will run at least once each day. Weekend show schedules are much more full. Detailed show schedules, including smaller productions like Storytelling at Royal Theatre, can be found here. Believe … In Holiday Magic1111111 World of Color2211112 ShowSatSunMonTueWedThuFri Fantasmic!2200002 Admission and HoursGetting to that time of year when Passholder blockouts start to creep back into play: Southern California Passholders are blocked out on Saturday, while Southern California Select Passholders are blocked out on Saturday & Sunday.

The Minnesota Vikings signed free-agent wide receiver Greg Jennings to a five-year contract Friday, after he spent the last seven years with the Green Bay Packers.The contract has a maximum value of $47.5 million, with $18 million guaranteed. Over the first three years of Jennings contract he is scheduled to make a minimum of $27 million, but could make as much as $28.5 million if he goes to the Pro Bowl, according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson.“I definitely wanted to know that they wanted me,” Jennings told ESPN.com. “I wanted to feel that they wanted me to be a part of what they are doing and a part of the future. And I got that feeling early and I got that feeling quite often.”The 29-year-old Jennings was hindered by injuries during the 2012 season with the Packers, only allowing him to play in eight games because of a torn lower abdominal muscle. He finished the season with a career-low 366 yards receiving. In 2011, he missed three games with a sprained left knee.But Jennings, who will turn 30 on Sept. 21, is confident that he can still be the same explosive and exciting player that he was earlier in his career.Jennings will be an intricate part of the Vikings offense since the team traded Percy Harvin earlier in the week to the Seattle Seahawks, after the two sides were unable to come to an agreement about a long-term contract extension. There had been speculation that Harvin would sit out until an extension was reached.“You can just get a sense that he [Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder] needed a little more around him to give him some help,” Jennings said. “Hopefully, I can help him a little bit.”The two-time Pro Bowl pick will be the No.1 receiver for the Vikings and will be expected to provide leadership to current receivers Jerome Simpson and Jarius Wright.However, Jennings must make a big transition between quarterbacks, leaving Aaron Rodgers for Ponder. Rodgers is one of the most consistent quarterbacks in the league, while Ponder has been inconsistent at times.“I had to watch Christian,” Jennings said. “I had to see what I was [getting] myself into. Very athletic quarterback, obviously his upside, his future is bright. I saw a young guy that was maturing.”Ponder said earlier this week that he was excited to have Jennings as a teammate and has admired his work ethic and leadership in Green Bay.In Jennings’ eight seasons with the Packers, he had 425 receptions for 6,537 yards and 53 touchdowns. From 2008-10 he had over 1,000 yards receiving each year, which the Vikings are hopeful he can recreate in Minnesota.
FILE – In this Sunday, Oct. 14, 2018 file photo, Miami Heat player Dwyane Wade and his wife Gabrielle Union-Wade acknowledge the cheers from the crowd during the second half of an NFL football game between the Miami Dolphins and the Chicago Bears in Miami Gardens, Fla. (AP Photo/Joel Auerbach, File)MIAMI (AP) — Dwyane Wade is back with the Miami Heat after missing nearly two weeks for the birth of his daughter.Wade went through Miami’s gameday shootaround and will play Tuesday night against the Brooklyn Nets. He said his wife and their daughter are doing well, which allowed him to feel comfortable to resume his season.“I’m going to obviously miss them,” Wade said. “It was tough leaving my little girl and my wife, but I’ve got to get back to work and I’ll see them again soon.”Wade was away from the team for about two weeks because of the birth of his daughter. Wade and his wife Gabrielle Union-Wade welcomed Kaavia James Union Wade into the world on Nov. 7. Wade had been in Los Angeles with them since then, and flew back to Miami on Monday.His return is most certainly welcome in Miami. The Heat went 2-5 in his time away, falling to 6-10 this season. They’ll play Tuesday without guards Goran Dragic (knee), Tyler Johnson (hamstring) and Dion Waiters (ankle recovery from last season).“There’s a human element to this business and to the game and it is the most important thing,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “The connection, your spirit, your emotions, everybody getting on the same page, and just seeing Dwyane back here with the guys there was a tangible boost in the energy today in the shootaround.”Wade is Miami’s third-leading scorer this season at 14.3 points per game. He was in his best stretch of the season when he got the call that his daughter was coming a few weeks earlier than planned.He said he felt the frustration level his team was going through during their current slide, and he tried to keep in touch via texts and phone calls. Wade kept up conditioning while in Los Angeles, but knows it’ll take a little time to get back to the level of a few weeks ago.“I was so excited for my daughter to come, but I was like, ‘Baby, you know, your dad was playing in a rhythm. You could have waited a little while,’” Wade said. “I was just getting my legs under me, but great things happened to make me miss time, and now I’m back.”The baby was born via a surrogate, which is one of the reasons why Wade felt taking a brief paternity leave was necessary.Parents of surrogate-carried babies are told the first few days after the birth are critical to forging deep bonds with their child. Lots of skin-to-skin contact and talking to the baby helps with the bonding.So Wade needed time, and the Heat supported the plan.“So much of this league is mood of the team and confidence,” Heat guard Josh Richardson said. “With him back, we’re definitely a lot more confident moving forward.”Union-Wade — who revealed she had nine miscarriages in her 2017 book “We’re Going to Need More Wine” — has taken time off work to bond with the new arrival. She’s been filming an upcoming project in Los Angeles, and when she’s back on the set, Kaavia James will be close by.“She was working right up until we got the call,” Wade said. “When she goes back, my daughter will be going back to the set with her. Her trailer is fit for everything, the baby’s safety, everything. So our baby will be there with her when she’s at work.”Wade strongly considered retirement during the offseason because of the baby’s arrival, not making the decision to return until just before training camp in September. He questioned whether it was fair to his wife and their family to still be playing and traveling while raising a baby.He also wondered if he could handle being away from his daughter for long stretches.“We went through a lot to get here,” Wade said. “My family had to come first right now.”___
While taking a drive around the C hexagon in India Gate, one cannot ignore the monumental dome of the Jaipur House which emerges amidst the rich vegetation of the Lutyen’s Delhi. It is what everyone lovingly recognises as the National Gallery of Modern Art.The resurrection of Delhi as the capital of newly Independent India, demanded creation of several cultural identities such as a National Museum, National Art Gallery and a Theatre House. This idea led to the formation of the National Gallery of Modern Art in the Jaipur House in 1954. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe museum was inaugurated by Dr S Radhakrishanan, the then Vice – President on March 29, 1954. All the prominent sculptors of the time like Devi Prasad Roy Chowdhury, Ramkinkar Baij, Sarbari Roy Chowdhury and other eminent artists had participated in the inauguration of the building and showcased an exhibition of contemporary Indian sculpture. The first prize entry in the exhibition, the iconic sculpture, ‘Triumph of Labour’ by Devi Prasad Roy Choudhury, adorns the front garden of the National Gallery of Modern Art, showing four men trying to lift a huge boulder in the heat of the afternoon sun. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThe show spoke of the painstaking preparations made by NGMA’s first curator Herman Goetz. A noted German art historian, Goetz had earlier been responsible for setting up the Baroda Museum. Since Goetz’s tenure, NGMA has had a string of distinguished Directors. In December 2016, the NGMA welcomed its first Director- General, Adwaita Charan Garanayak, an eminent sculptor and celebrated the foundation day of museum with art lovers of the city amid the historic exhibition titled ‘Itihaas’. Serving as an opulent stage to display masterpieces of art for several years, the last few months the Jaipur House was shut down to the public for much needed restoration. In conversation with the current Director General, Adwaita Garanayak, he says with great enthusiasm, “We are attempting and leaving no stone unturned to restore the building to its former glory and simultaneously the team from NGMA is preparing an exhibition befitting the space on its inaugural day to the public.” Efforts have been made to maintain the royalty of the house wherein it is intended that the building is embraced by nature in its surroundings. The openness of the Jaipur house in its original has been kept alive where the viewer will be able to savor the charm of the bygone era. The beauty of the woodwork speaks volumes about the fine craftsmanship of the era which has also been maintained during the restoration. From the ceilings to the dome till the flooring, each aspect of the iconic building has been restored with utmost finesse and craftsmanship which were once clogged with the artificial partitions and closures. The efforts to enliven the beauty and charm of the old era, the restoration of the Jaipur house mark another iconic chapter in its history. The inaugural exhibition will showcase the works of Upendra Maharathi, a Buddhist and Gandhian artist. This exhibition is on the multilayered artistic pursuit of this Gandhian artist, who was a rank freedom fighter and later a recipient of the Padma Shri award in the year 1969. The spirituality and the dedication to raise oneself to an ultimate elevated world depicted in the works of Maharathi, was decided to be a befitting theme to this celebration of the new lease of life of the Jaipur House.
