first_imgA $35-million project for the construction of the first two onshore drilling rigs ever built in Nova Scotia was announced in Sydney today, Oct 17. Premier Rodney MacDonald said the rigs will be built for Nabors Canada by Laurentian Energy Corporation at its Sydport facility in Sydney. “I acknowledge and applaud the hardworking men and women of Nova Scotia who have proven they can take on projects such as this,” said Premier MacDonald. “This work builds on the success of the Offshore Strategic Energy Agreement between the province and EnCana Corporation and shows what happens when a government is committed to creating jobs, when businesses believe in Nova Scotia, and when a capable, well-trained and reliable work force is determined to put out a superior product.” Also taking part in the announcement were Peter Shankel, drilling manager for EnCana’s Deep Panuke project, Duane Mather, president of Nabors Canada, and James Wooder, CEO of Laurentian Energy Corporation. “EnCana is pleased to support this initiative,” said Mr. Shankel. “Laurentian has proven that it can do good, solid work on the fabrication of rig modules and here is the opportunity to step up to the manufacturing of entire rigs.” Mr. Mather said Laurentian workers did such an excellent job on the rig modules in 2007 that Nabors had no hesitation in awarding this new project to the company. “Nabors Canada is excited to participate in this project,” said Mr. Mather. “It gives us the opportunity to acquire additional drilling rigs more quickly in this very competitive market by using very qualified and experienced workers here in Nova Scotia.” Mr. Wooder said this second contract with Nabors is a big vote of confidence in Nova Scotia workers. “It will allow our employees and subcontractors to complete the rig manufacturing learning curve and position the company to continue to service the western Canadian oil industry from right here in Cape Breton,” he said. Mr. Wooder said Dartmouth company RKO Steel, will be doing some of the fabrication work. The project, already underway in Dartmouth and Sydney, will provide at least 150,000 hours of work or about 75 jobs. “What is really significant here is the fact that, in a relatively short period, we have developed the capacity to build this type of land rig right here in Nova Scotia,” said Premier MacDonald. The premier attributed this to several factors including the willingness of EnCana to take Nova Scotians to Alberta to learn the skills and technology required to build land rigs, Nabors’ foresight to expand its supply base and invest money and resources to develop the rigs in Nova Scotia, and Laurentian’s strong performance in the relationship it has forged with Nabors. The two programmable AC electric drilling rigs will have cantilevered masts that extend to a height of 42.6 metres (142 feet), with top-driven drills and a load capacity of 247,500 kilograms (550,000 pounds). They incorporate state-of-the-art technology that Nabors has developed and is transferring to Nova Scotia workers through this project. All fabrication, electrical, hydraulic, mechanical, welding, painting and sandblasting work will be completed in Nova Scotia, including final assembly and commissioning. Laurentian gained experience constructing rig components in 2007 as part of an earlier contract with Nabors, which also was facilitated by EnCana. That work involved building components for Nabors’ heli-rigs, giant onshore drilling rigs transported to remote areas by helicopter. It was part of EnCana’s commitment to the province, under the Deep Panuke development agreement, to commit financial and human resources to help develop the capability to manufacture onshore rigs in Nova Scotia. Nabors Canada, based in Calgary, is the Canadian arm of the largest drilling company in the world, Nabors Industries Ltd. of Houston, Texas. Laurentian Energy owns and operates Sydport Industrial Park located in Edwardsville, Cape Breton with direct access to Sydney Harbour.last_img read more

We rolled out our NFL Elo ratings last week, giving us a set of computer power ratings for each team, each week, going back to the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. There are a lot of cool things we can do with these numbers; for example, I used them Monday to quantify how upset-heavy Week 1 of the 2014 season was compared to past opening weeks.But one of the best features of Elo ratings is that they represent a rolling estimate of a team’s strength, informed by new outcomes and previous results. After computing them, we can measure when a team appeared to be at its strongest (or weakest). So, in this edition of “Fun With NFL Elo Ratings,” let’s pinpoint when each NFL franchise hit its all-time (well, since 1970) high and low points.For example, the Seattle Seahawks currently have an Elo rating of 1685, which is very nearly the best they’ve ever had as a franchise (their all-time high, 1761, was achieved the night of their dominant Super Bowl victory over the Denver Broncos in February). Meanwhile, Washington’s current rating of 1374 is very nearly the worst in the team’s post-merger history (a mark the team set in December after a 20-6 loss to the New York Giants). And for some franchises, such as the New York Jets, their current rating (1470) is almost exactly halfway between their all-time high (1680, achieved after a win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in 1999) and their all-time low (1250, achieved after a loss to the Miami Dolphins in 1996).We’ve summarized that information for each team in the following chart. The gray dots represent the best and worst Elo ratings achieved by the franchise since 1970, and the red dot represents the team’s current rating. It’s a good way to show where on the spectrum of its historical performance a team is residing, as well as the kind of variance it has had between good and bad teams in its history.A few observations: The New England Patriots have experienced the highs and lows of the NFL like no other team — the difference between their best (1845) and worst (1238) rating was bigger than that of any other franchise. At the other end of the spectrum, the Carolina Panthers, Baltimore Ravens and Houston Texans have had the smallest range of Elo values, which makes sense, given all three came into existence in the mid-1990s or later.Among long-standing teams, the Pittsburgh Steelers have had the smallest range; their worst-ever Elo rating (1390) was easily higher than any other team’s worst mark. That fact plays a major role in why the Steelers also have the highest midpoint between their best-ever and worst-ever ratings (1582). Meanwhile, the poor Detroit Lions have the lowest midpoint between their best and worst ratings (1431), and they also have gone the longest time since achieving their high-water mark. read more

first_imgTÁNAISTE EAMON GILMORE has said that the Irish embassy in Athens made contact with Greek police in relation to the detention of an Albanian man, married to an Irish woman, who has been convicted with involvement in a spate of burglaries in Crete.Mark Marku’s wife Julie has previously appealed to the Irish authorities to intervene in the case as she affirms that accusations her husband was a member of an armed gang that committed seven armed robberies of jewellers in 2010 are unsupported by any evidence.The man and his brother Andreas were sentenced to 18 years in prison last year and are currently appealing the conviction. His defence presented evidence to the court that included social welfare records, wage slips, flight tickets and passport stamps from Ireland though the prosecutor claimed these documents were falsified.Greek authorities will not provide informationIn response to a parliamentary question from TD Billy Timmins, Gilmore said that, on hearing of his detention, “and notwithstanding the fact that he is not a citizen of Ireland, the Irish Embassy in Athens made contact with the Greek police in an effort to convey the Irish government’s interest in this case on the basis that he is married to an Irish citizen”.It was made clear to our embassy that the authorities in Crete would not provide them with any information regarding this case as no Irish citizen was involved.Authenticated documentsHe said that the embassy has no rights of communication and contact with people in Greece who are not Irish citizens even if they are related to Irish citizens. Gilmore added that Julie Marku had previously met with the former Minister of State in his department, the Irish Ambassador to Greece and his deputy and her husbands lawyer.As a result of concerns raised at these meetings the wife of the above named has also been facilitated by the Consular Services Section of my department, she has had her documents authenticated as required.The Tánaiste added that his department had also contacted the Albanian Embassy in Athens, as they are responsible for offering consular assistance to Marku, but no response was received.“It is a sovereign matter for each country to decide what level of consular assistance it affords its citizens,” he said. “It would be inappropriate for me to comment on the Albanian Embassy’s consular services to their citizens.”Read: Department of Foreign Affairs operates 25 embassy Twitter accounts>Read: Embassy expenditure down almost €1.6m last year>last_img read more

first_imgUn martin-pêcheur bat le record de distance en vol de son espèceDes ornithologues britanniques ont récemment capturé (et relâché) dans le Suffolk un martin-pêcheur précédemment bagué en Pologne : un voyage record de 1.000 kilomètres.   C’est une découverte record qu’ont faite des scientifiques britanniques. En pleine nature, ceux-ci ont capturé un petit oiseau tout à fait spécial, un martin-pêcheur qui portait une bague dont l’avaient équipé des ornithologues… en Pologne. À lire aussiCette perruche imite à la perfection R2-D2, le robot de Star WarsRelâché dans la réserve d’Orford Ness au Royaume-Uni, gérée par le National Trust (une grande association environnementale britannique), l’oiseau a donc parcouru plus de 1.000 kilomètres et battu le précédent record de vol de cette espèce entre le continent et le Royaume-Uni, qui était de 970 kilomètres.”Ce sont des migrateurs. Nous en avons eu qui venaient d’Allemagne ou d’Espagne. (…) Nous avons un programme de baguage régulier, géré par des bénévoles. Évidemment, on ne peut baguer qu’une infime proportion du nombre d’oiseaux. Mais en le faisant sur une longue période, on finit par établir une énorme quantité d’informations [notamment sur leur longévité et leurs migrations]”, a précisé Duncan Kent, responsable de la réserve d’Orford Ness.Le 26 octobre 2011 à 15:54 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

first_imgOLYMPIA — Washington on Friday became the ninth state to raise its smoking age, following a national trend that has seen at least half a dozen Legislatures approve similar proposals in recent months.Along with restricting traditional cigarettes, the new law raises the legal age for buying e-cigarettes and other vaping products, whether they include nicotine or not, and sets a penalty for selling to underage buyers.Gov. Jay Inslee signed the bill at a ceremony in Seattle, making Washington the latest of three states to have seen age-raise bills signed into law so far this year, after Virginia and Utah, and joining a growing group of states to have made the change in recent years.In remarks before the signing, the bill’s sponsor called it an effort to attack a last avenue for cigarettes into schools — via 18 year-old students — and thus shrink the exposure of younger students.“I think it’ll make a significant difference for youth,” said Vancouver Republican Rep. Paul Harris. “We have a lot of 18 year-olds that are still in in high schools.”But while the bill had bipartisan support in the state Legislature — it drew Republican votes along with Harris’ as well as broad support from Democrats — critics called it an attack on personal freedoms.last_img read more

first_imgAccording to House, publishers like Fast Company and Popular Science may not choose to switch to an Acquia-supported model if they’ve already customized their own systems, but Drupal users can benefit from Acquia’s testing and scalability developments. Others may want to “upgrade” to Carbon for the technical support, notifications, and other support.House says Drupal’s popularity among publishers—and other users, of course—may increase with a product company behind the system. Carbon and Spokes are slated to be available in the second half of this year. Dries Buytaert, Drupal co-developer and project lead, has co-founded a software company, Acquia, to offer commercially-supported distribution and services of Drupal’s popular open source platform. The company was formally announced this week at DrupalCon Boston—a gathering of Drupal users which included representatives from Fast Company and Popular Science magazines, both Drupal customers.Acquia’s Drupal distribution project is an “essential step in the maturation of the Drupal project,” according to Buytaert, offering what Acquia director of product marketing Bryan House calls “the innovation and value of open-source software” with “the reliability of product-company backing.” According to Acquia’s Web site, the company saw that Drupal had achieved a “critical mass” in the market, making Acquia’s development timely.The distribution service (which the company calls “Carbon”) will be available through an annual subscription along with Acquia’s correlating update notification system (called “Spokes”). House says subscriptions will be sold on a per-server basis and will cost between $500 and $5,000. It’s comparable, he says, to Red Hat and Ubuntu’s commercially-supported distributions of operating system Linux.last_img read more

first_imgAll patients on waiting lists for surgeries at state hospitals on or after March 15 will undergo the procedures in the private sector, following a Cabinet decision on Monday.March 15 marks the day nurses from the PASYNO union began an indefinite strike in state hospitals.Some patients have already been referred to the private sector for treatment, but Monday’s decision means all state health patients waiting for surgery should now be referred for as long as the strike continues.Deputy government spokesman Victoras Papadopoulos said the choice of which private hospital the patient would be referred to would be made by the heads of each state hospital’s department and ratified by each hospital chief.Referrals should be adequately justified by the heads of each hospital’s department, Papadopoulos said.“Specific guidelines were given to serve all those patients scheduled for surgery but could not get the specific service due to the strike,” Health Minister George Pamporidis said, following a meeting at the Nicosia general hospital.State doctors union PASYKI immediately criticised the decision and warned it would not allow government doctors to oversee choosing a private medical centre for a patient as it would leave them open to accusations of favouritism and bribery.At the same time, it said, the decision “blatantly violates the right of the patient to free choice of doctor”.The union added that the “responsibility for selecting the medical centre is the sole responsibility of the health ministry”.The announcement that large numbers of patients would now be receiving surgery in private clinics came after the head of a public sector nurses union warned on Monday that patients’ health could be at risk if the health ministry did not resolve staffing problems in state hospitals caused by the ongoing strike.The head of PASYDY’s nurses union, Prodromos Argyrides, said lack of staff could put patients at risk as nurses not taking part in the strike were exhausted.PASYDY members have not joined their approximately 1,900 colleagues at PASYNO who went on an indefinite strike last Tuesday.Argyrides warned, however, that the situation could not continue for much longer.“This is a serious problem we can’t hide it…I don’t think we can go on like this for many more days,” he said.“The situation is very difficult and gets harder every day. Until now the health ministry has still not managed to arrange adequate skeleton staff for every department.”The union boss said PASYDY was now considering taking their own measures, but could not reveal details until after a general meeting.Speaking on state radio, Argyrides said that as of Monday, PASYDY nurses would only be dealing with emergency situations and would handle other cases only if they could.This was firstly to protect patients but also PASYDY members. If something happened to patients, then the nurses would bear responsibility, he said.Meanwhile, President Nicos Anastasiades met with AKEL’s general secretary Andros Kyprianou on Monday to discuss the problems plaguing the health sector.Deputy government spokesman Victoras Papadopoulos said “during the meeting, there was a fruitful exchange of opinions on a series of issues plaguing the health sector.”The much anticipated National Health Scheme (NHS) was on the agenda, with Anastasiades briefing Kyprianou that he intended to have an exhaustive dialogue on a party leader level on how the NHS could gradually be implemented.“There are of course different opinions and approaches but the president believes the aim is a national consultation over the subject of health because offering quality services to citizens is necessary.”Responding to reports, the treasury in a statement said the actual hours and days for which public sector employees – including nurses – went on a strike were deducted from their paycheque.PASYNO nurses are striking in a bid to pressure the government to recognise their qualifications as equivalent to a university degree. Although they insist they are not doing it for the money, the move would automatically put them on a higher pay scale and according to the government, cost the state back some €35 to €40 million. You May LikeInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesNew Rule in Rowland Heights, California Leaves Drivers FumingInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoIcePopMan Notices A Strange Hole In This Lake, So He Gets A Drone, Flies It Inside And Captures ThisIcePopUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
