E. Guinea working to bring in another FLNG unit

first_imgEquatorial Guinea, expected to bring one of the continent’s first Floating LNG units in production, is now working to develop other offshore assets using the same technology.Namely, OneLNG, a company developing Fortuna FLNG project with Ophir Energy offshore Equatorial Guinea, on May 29, entered into a binding memorandum of understanding with the energy ministry of Equatorial Guinea to further explore the liquefaction and commercialisation of natural gas.Under the agreement, the company recently established as a Schlumberger-Golar joint venture will focus its efforts on Blocks O and I offshore Malabo.According to Golar LNG, agreement terms between E. Guinea – a new OPEC member – and OneLNG place obligations on both parties to find a technical and commercial solution to monetize gas that is either stranded or being re-injected in liquids production.That commercial solution is to include the provision of an FLNG vessel, associated infrastructure and the creation of an LNG sales vehicle.Golar LNG further said the parties seek to reach definitive agreements to proceed by December 2017 but no later than December 2018. In addition to this, OneLNG is also working on 3-4 additional projects, each involving one or more FLNG unit, Golar LNG said.Offshore Energy Today Stafflast_img read more

Arteta calls for title focus

first_img Lead frontman Olivier Giroud is also troubled by his own ankle problem, but could return to face Spurs. Bendtner is set for a scan on Friday, with initial fears he would be sidelined for several weeks. Wenger, though, insists he will not be rushed into any hasty transfers, with fit-again German forward Lukas Podolski another attacking option, although he looked rusty when deployed in a central role against Cardiff. Arsenal have been linked with a cut-price move for Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov. Walcott would always welcome some additional talent to boost what he believes is now a very “special” squad. “To be fair that is for the manager to decide if he wants to go out and buy anyone,” the England forward said. “It is always nice to have competition with players coming in, but January is such a difficult period in the transfer market to get players in, especially the top players. “The boss has already said that he is looking for special players and we have got a lot of special players in that dressing room.” Walcott feels Arsenal are growing in confidence as they look to mount a long-overdue sustained assault on the Premier League crown. “If you want to win titles then you have got to go to the end and the thing about this team at the moment is that we never give up,” the England forward said. “Every game that we win the belief gets stronger and stronger.” Bendtner, meanwhile, posted an update on Twitter thanking Arsenal fans for their messages of support. The Denmark striker, now back in the first-team picture having seemed set to leave the club, said: “Have a scan tomorrow that will tell us more. So happy with the 3 points. Thanks for all your tweets and concerns. #fans #arsenalfamily #23” By then, Chelsea could have gone top with victory at Hull on the Saturday while City will lead the league once again if they win at Newcastle the following afternoon. With such little margin for error, Spanish midfielder Arteta – who continues to skipper the side with club captain Thomas Vermaelen on the bench – wants Arsenal fully focused on delivering their own required performance each time they head out onto the pitch. “We are just going from game to game, because there is still a lot to play for,” Arteta said. “You can see every week there are results which are surprising and that everyone is putting pressure on each other. “It (title race) is going to go all the way to the end and we want to be there because we want to win the league.” Arsenal had to work hard for the win over a determined Cardiff side, who were watched by manager-in-waiting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer from the stands. Eventually the pressure told as substitute Nicklas Bendtner crashed the ball home from close range with just two minutes left before Theo Walcott’s neat chipped finish in stoppage time made sure of all three points. Arsenal’s victory, however, came at some cost with Bendtner having suffered an ankle injury in the process of scoring, when Cardiff goalkeeper David Marshall caught him trying to make a save at point-blank range. Mikel Arteta does not want Arsenal to lose their focus in their bid to win the Barclays Premier League title. The Gunners returned to the top of the table, one point ahead of Manchester City, after a late double salvo secured a 2-0 victory over Cardiff at the Emirates Stadium on New Year’s Day. However, following next weekend’s FA Cup third-round ties – when Arsenal host north-London rivals Tottenham – Arsene Wenger’s side will not then be in action again until Monday January 13 when they travel to Aston Villa.

US Patent Office finds Redskins’ name offensive

first_imgIn this Sept. 23, 2012, file photo, Washington Redskins punter Sav Rocca carries a football in his helmet before an NFL football game against the Cincinnati Bengals in Landover, Md. (AP Photo/Nick Wass, File)WASHINGTON (AP) – The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office ruled Wednesday that the Washington Redskins’ name is “disparaging of Native Americans” and should be stripped of trademark protection – a decision that puts powerful new financial and political pressure on the NFL team to rename itself.By a vote of 2-1, the agency’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board sided with five Native Americans in a dispute that has been working its way through legal channels for more than two decades.The ruling doesn’t directly force the team to abandon the name, but it adds momentum to the campaign at a time of increasing criticism of Redskins owner Dan Snyder from political, religious and sports figures who say it’s time for a change.“If the most basic sense of morality, decency and civility has not yet convinced the Washington team and the NFL to stop using this hateful slur, then hopefully today’s patent ruling will, if only because it imperils the ability of the team’s billionaire owner to keep profiting off the denigration and dehumanization of Native Americans,” Oneida Indian representative Ray Halbritter and National Congress of American Indians Executive Director Jackie Pata, two of the leading forces in the campaign to change the name, said in a statement.The Redskins quickly announced they will appeal, and the team’s name will continue to have trademark protection while the matter makes its way through the courts – a process that could take years.A similar ruling by the board in 1999 was overturned on a technicality in 2003.“We’ve seen this story before,” Redskins attorney Bob Raskopf said. “And just like last time, today’s ruling will have no effect at all on the team’s ownership of and right to use the Redskins name and logo. We are confident we will prevail once again.”Snyder and others associated with the team have long argued that the Redskins name is used with respect and honor and is a source of pride among many American Indians.The ruling involves six uses of the Redskins name trademarked by the team from 1967 to 1990. It does not apply to the team’s American Indian head logo.If it stands, the team will still be free to use the name but will lose a lot of its ability to protect its financial interests. It will be more difficult for the team to go after others who print the Redskins name on sweatshirts, jerseys or other gear without permission.“Joe in Peoria is going to have a pretty good argument that he could put the ‘Redskins’ name on some T-shirt,” said Brad Newberg, a copyright law expert in Virginia.Newberg estimated that the ruling, if upheld, could cost the team tens of millions of dollars per year. Forbes magazine puts the value of the Redskins franchise at $1.7 billion and says $145 million of that is attributable to the team’s brand.The board exercised its authority under a section of the Trademark Act of 1946 that disallows trademarks that may disparage others or bring them into contempt or disrepute. Over the years, the courts have rejected arguments that the First Amendment guarantees the right to register any name as a trademark.In reaching its decision, the board drew on the testimony of three experts in linguistics and lexicography and combed through old dictionaries, books, newspapers, magazines and even vintage movie quotes to examine the history of “redskin,” looking specifically at whether it was considered disparaging at the time the trademarks were issued.The board concluded that today’s dictionaries “uniformly label the term ‘offensive’ or ‘disparaging’” – a change that took place between the late 1960s and the 1990s – and that its derogatory nature is further demonstrated by “the near complete drop-off in usage of ‘redskins’” as a term for Native Americans beginning in the 1960s.Also, the board said a “substantial” number of Native Americans – at least about 30 percent – have found the team’s use of the term to be offensive.Earlier this year, the agency rejected trademark requests for “Redskins Hog Rinds” and “Washington Redskin Potatoes.” It also turned down an Asian-American rock band called The Slants and the Jewish humor magazine Heeb.Courts overturned the board’s 1999 ruling in part because the plaintiffs waited too long to voice their objections after the original trademarks were issued. The case was relaunched in 2006 by a younger group of Native Americans who only recently became adults and would not have been able to file a case earlier.The chorus of critics against the use of the name has grown over the past year.President Barack Obama himself said last year that he would think about changing the name if he owned the team.On Saturday, a major sector of the United Church of Christ voted to urge its 40,000 members to boycott the Redskins. On Capitol Hill, half the Senate recently wrote letters to the NFL urging a change because “racism and bigotry have no place in professional sports.”Washington Mayor Vincent Gray suggested Wednesday that the name will almost certainly have to change if the team ever wants to build a new stadium in the city.Snyder, who has vowed repeatedly never to abandon the name, declined to comment as he walked off the field after a practice Wednesday.Redskins players have mostly avoided the topic.“Our job as players is to focus on what we can on this field day-in and day-out and let the legal people take care of that stuff,” quarterback Robert Griffin III said. “And when it’s the right time, then we can voice whatever it is we know about the situation.”The Redskins have responded to critics by creating a foundation to give financial support to Indian tribes. Suzan Shown Harjo, a leading figure in the trademark case, called the foundation “somewhere between a PR assault and bribery.”Supporters of a name change hailed the decision.“Daniel Snyder may be the last person in the world to realize this,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said on the Senate floor, “but it is just a matter of time until he is forced to do the right thing.”___AP National Writer Eddie Pells in Denver and Associated Press writer Sam Hananel contributed to this report.___AP NFL websites: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFLlast_img read more

South Africa’s 4+1 plan to boost maths teachers

first_img25 March 2015The implementation of the 1+4 teacher development plan, aimed at boosting performance in the senior phase, will go ahead after teacher unions expressed support for the initiative, the Department of Basic Education (DBE) said on Tuesday.The Education Labour Relations Council (ELRC), a body comprising all teacher unions, had agreed to the 1+4 programme for maths teachers, the department said.The 1+4 teacher development plan has been developed to address the poor performance of learners in mathematics as well as levels of competency of mathematics teachers in South African primary schools.A recent investigation initiated by Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga into the challenges around mathematics and science and technology (MST) revealed that educator capacity was wanting at all levels.The DBE said the 1+4 model was based on and supported the concept of professional learning communities (PLCs), which Motshekga launched in August 2014.The 4+1 model works on the assumption that teachers need assistance with the entire curriculum and not just certain sections of the curriculum, which they presumably have difficulties teaching.“We need to be extremely radical and do the ‘out of the normal’ in our determination to save our children,” the department said.While training had already begun in Mpumalanga, North West and the Eastern Cape, the project gets officially under way on 1 April.The department said the model involved breaking each week into two parts, with one day dedicated to thoroughly preparing teachers for the content to be delivered in that particular week.AssessmentTeachers would be expected to obtain 80% and above in the post-test. Those who obtain less than that will be supported by subject advisors and classroom visits.“Heads of departments, deputy principals and principals in the schools will also have to play a critical role in supporting these teachers,” said the department.This model involves 23 teacher training days a year, up from the previous 10.“The training sessions that we have had up to now, which have yielded unsatisfactory results normally run for 10 days in a year. This radical approach will expose teachers to 30 days of training, development and support on a weekly basis. It turns teachers into learners, promoting the principle of a teacher as a lifelong learner,” the department said.The department said school management teams (SMTs) would have to adapt their timetables to support the model, ensuring the instruction time allocated for the senior phase is covered.SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

Pork exports struggled in 2015 but finished strong

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Despite struggling for most of 2015, U.S. pork exports posted a strong finish during December, ending a tough year on a high note. December export volume was up 3% from 2014. For the year, U.S. pork and pork variety meat exports totaled 4.7 billion pounds in volume and $5.58 billion in value, down 2% and 16%, respectively from 2014.“Without a doubt, 2015 was a difficult year for U.S. pork exports,” said Becca Nepple, vice president of international marketing for the Pork Checkoff. “The West Coast port slowdown, market-access challenges, the strong U.S. dollar and strong competition led to last year’s decrease in exports.”However, pork exports accounted for 24% of total 2015 pork and pork variety meat production. Export value per head averaged $48.31, down 23% from 2014.“With projections for increased pork production this year, the Checkoff is committed to strengthening its partnership with our international customers,” Nepple said. “The National Pork Board has allocated funding toward focused in-country promotions of U.S. pork with the U.S. Meat Export Federation during 2016.”During 2015, more than 100 countries around the world imported U.S. pork.The top five markets in total pounds of pork exported were Mexico (1.585 billion pounds), Japan (895.5 million pounds), Canada (747.5 million pounds), China and Hong Kong (443.1 million pounds) and Korea (369.3 million pounds).The top five markets in total value exported were Japan ($1.586 billion), Mexico ($1.267 billion), China and Hong Kong ($778.8 million), Canada ($700.4 million) and Korea ($470.3 million).last_img read more

Carroll’s 24 points lead Nets over struggling Grizzlies

Tagalog NPA While the Grizzlies were grousing, the Nets were celebrating, at least for one night, after snapping a three-game losing streak.DeMarre Carroll scored a season-high 24 points and Trevor Booker added 16 points and 11 rebounds. Joe Harris finished with 13 points for the Nets, who used a third-quarter spurt to put away the Grizzlies.The teams were tied at 47 at the break, but the Nets opened the second half with a 22-6 run, looking much more fluid on offense than in the opening half. Brooklyn connected on nine of its first 15 shots to build the lead, outscoring the Grizzlies 32-18.“We came out in the second half and got two big stops, scored,” Brooklyn coach Kenny Atkinson said. “We picked up our energy in the second half. The first part of the third quarter, that’s where I thought the game turned.”Memphis was able to get back in the game to open the final period, composing a 12-3 run.

(AP Photo/Brandon Dill)MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The misery remains for the Memphis Grizzlies, and friction seems to be building in the locker room.Memphis dropped its eighth straight on Sunday in a 98-88 loss to the Brooklyn Nets. The Grizzlies made a fourth-quarter dent in a Nets lead that stretched to 19, all while center Marc Gasol was in a warmup on the bench. Despite matching Tyreke Evans for the team lead with 18 points, Gasol, who leads the team in scoring, rebounds and assists, wasn’t called on to play in the final period.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
