Safe Bulkers Picks Erma First BWTS for Its Fleet

first_imgzoom Monaco-based dry bulk shipping company Safe Bulkers has agreed with Erma First, a Greece based company, to install a Ballast Water Treatment System (BWTS) across its fleet of 38 vessels.The first installation of Erma First BWTS is expected to take place during the company’s next dry-docking scheduled for the first quarter of 2018. The installation of the system on all Safe Bulkers’ vessels and related capital expenditure is expected to be expanded over a period of five years, according to the shipping company’s dry-docking schedule.“We decided to install in all our vessels Erma First BWTS, which is designed and produced in Greece, starting at an early stage which provides us with certain commercial and financial advantages, including availability of equipment, minimization of downtime, unrestricted worldwide trading in the following years and the financial benefits of a block order,” Loukas Barmparis, President of the company, said.The shipping company added that it has worked intensively with Erma First over the previous months to optimize and adapt the system to the company’s vessels.Erma First BWTS received the United States Coast Guard (the USCG) type-approval certificate in October 2017.The Ballast Water Management (BWM) Convention entered into force on September 8, 2017. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) had adopted a similar regulation for ballast water treatment which became effective on January 1, 2016.Under the rules of the IMO convention, all ships engaged in international trade are required to manage their ballast water so as to avoid the introduction of alien species into coastal areas, including exchanging their ballast water or treating it using an approved ballast water management system.Initially, there will be two different standards, corresponding to these two options.The D-1 standard requires ships to exchange their ballast water in open seas, away from coastal waters.D-2 is a performance standard which specifies the maximum amount of viable organisms allowed to be discharged, including specified indicator microbes harmful to human health.New ships must meet the D-2 standard from September 8 while existing ships must initially meet the D-1 standard.Vessels built before September 8, 2017, are to comply with the D-2 standard at the first MARPOL IOPP renewal survey is completed.last_img read more

UK in pole position in £62 billion selfdriving car race – if

UK world’s number one location for mass-market potential of connected and autonomous vehicles, with £62bn annual economic opportunity by 2030, finds new report.Massive safety benefits as driver assistance and self-driving tech could prevent 47,000 serious accidents and save 3,900 lives over next decade.Lifestyle boost for commuters as greater productivity and faster journeys give drivers back full working week every year.Success hinges on favourable Brexit agreement, with ‘no deal’ threat putting investment and safety gains at risk, warns SMMT at major industry conference.The UK is in pole position in the global race to market for connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs), with a £62 billion boost to the UK economy by 2030 up for grabs, according to a major new report published today by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) and Frost & Sullivan.Connected and Autonomous Vehicles: Winning the Global Race to Market,1 analyses the wide-ranging societal and economic benefits to be achieved by gradually increasing CAVs on our roads.The UK is in a strong position to capitalise, with more than £500 million already committed by industry and government to CAV R&D and testing. Autonomous driving trials are taking place in our major towns and cities, we are home to four major CAV test beds and three additional sites focused on highways, rural and parking, with more than 80 collaborative R&D projects underway. The next game-changing step is to move from testing CAV technologies to deployment in the real world.Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) such as Autonomous Emergency Braking and Collision Warning are already available on the majority of new cars registered in the UK.2 Combined with the gradual introduction of automated vehicles from 2021, this will deliver massive safety benefits. Over the next decade, the technology is set to prevent 47,000 serious accidents and save 3,900 lives.At the same time, some 420,000 new jobs will be created, including in the automotive industry and other sectors such as telecoms and digital services. Driving commuters, meanwhile, will gain back the equivalent of a full working week thanks to more ‘downtime’ and smoother traffic flows during their commute.Connected and Autonomous Vehicles: Winning the Global Race to Market identifies three critical areas that will help CAV rollout and in which the UK has a significant advantage: supportive regulation, enabling infrastructure and an attractive market.With the world’s first insurance legislation for autonomous vehicles already in place, the most comprehensive review of road transport underway and more miles across motorways, urban and rural roads able to be driven autonomously, the UK is already ahead of global rivals in its readiness to commercialise self-driving technology.The report ranks the UK above other major automotive countries, including Germany, US, Japan and South Korea as a global destination for the mass rollout of CAVs.To realise this potential, however, the conditions must be right, and sustained support from government will be vital – particularly if we are to meet its ambition to get autonomous vehicles on to UK roads in 2021.The report’s key recommendations for government include updating road traffic laws, improving 4G coverage across all road networks, encouraging local authorities to work with industry to implement urban mobility services and influencing future harmonisation of international regulations to ensure these new vehicles can operate seamlessly between the UK and abroad.Connected and Autonomous Vehicles on display at SMMT Connected – Mercedes-Benz Truck Actros 1853, Range Rover Sport, Volvo XC60, Oxbotica, Aurrigo pod, E-Cyclopic, Bird scooter, Bosch E-Bike and Conigital podCrucially, however, the UK’s departure from the EU must be orderly with a deal that supports both the industry and technological collaboration, especially in data. A ‘no deal’ Brexit will result in lasting damage to the UK’s reputation as a politically stable destination for inward investment, putting the benefits identified in the report at risk.Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said,A transport revolution stands before us as we move to self-driving cars and the UK is in pole position in this £62 billion race. Government and industry have already invested millions to lay the foundations, and the opportunities are dramatic – new jobs, economic growth and improvements across society. The UK’s potential is clear. We are ahead of many rival nations but to realise these benefits we must move fast.Brexit has undermined our global reputation for political stability and it continues to devour valuable time and investment. We need the deadlock broken with ‘no deal’ categorically ruled out and a future relationship agreed that reflects the integrated nature of our industry and delivers frictionless trade.Sarwant Singh, Senior Partner and Head of Mobility, Frost & Sullivan, said,The UK already has the essential building blocks – forward thinking legislation, advanced technology infrastructure, a highly skilled labour force, and a tech savvy customer base – to spearhead CAV deployment over the next decade.However, it will require sustained and coordinated efforts by all key stakeholders, especially the government, to realise the significant annual economic benefits forecast for the UK from CAV deployment by 2030 and drive the vision of safe, convenient and accessible mobility for all.Connected and Autonomous Vehicles: Winning the Global Race to Market, will be launched today at SMMT Connected 2019, the third automotive industry-led event to explore the future of mass transport and mobility. More than 450 leaders from across the automotive and tech industries, government and other stakeholders are expected to attend to discuss challenges and opportunities in future mobility innovation and deployment. They will hear from speakers including the Right Hon Greg Clark MP, Secretary of State for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy; Dr Andy Palmer CMG, President and Group CEO, Aston Martin Lagonda; and Agustín Martín, CEO, Toyota Connected Europe.On display at SMMT Connected 2019 will be some of the latest connected and autonomous mobility solutions and prototypes in use in the UK covering four and two wheels. These include: Aurrigo pod, Bird electric scooter, Bosch powered e-bike, Conigital pod, Cyclopic folding e-bike, Mercedes-Benz Actros 1853 4×2 BigSpace, Oxbotica autonomous Ford Mondeo, Jaguar Land Rover self-driving Range Rover Sport and Volvo XC60.Notes to editors1: Download the report – https://www.smmt.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/SMMT-CONNECTED-REPORT-2019.pdf2: Based on JATO data and SMMT new car registrations for 2018 – Autonomous Emergency Braking 73.5%.

(Photo by Rashah McChesney)President Donald Trump is headed to China next week. Alaska’s Governor and the man tasked with landing a deal to build the state’s ambitious gas pipeline project will be there.Listen nowGov. Bill Walker and Keith Meyer will be in Beijing with the president, as part of a larger group of corporate leaders and members of the private sector.Walker wouldn’t say if he planned to announce any deals with potential partners for Alaska’s $45 billion LNG project.“You know, it’s too soon to say. I will actually be in China a couple of days before the president arrives into China, into Beijing. So we’ll see what happens in these final few days,” Walker said.But Walker said his goal for the trip is to make a deal. He also had no details on meetings scheduled with potential customers. No one from the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation returned a phone call and email seeking more information on the trip.Walker said he sees this trip as the most significant opportunity Alaska will have to engage with the market on the project.  He said it aligns with the Trump administration’s goals of working with China on trade and energy policy.“It’s a good fit for a number of reasons,” Walker said. ”One is, it’s about a $10 billion dollar a year offset on the balance of trade issue and also what it does on the air quality, air emissions, natural gas vs. some of the other fuels that they use in those areas.”Walker will fly with President Trump to Hawaii on Friday for a meeting with four other governors on Pacific issues. Then, he’ll head to Beijing on Saturday.last_img read more

After 10 soldiers killed in Kashmir in a week Amit Shah to

first_imgAmit ShahReutersUnion Home Minister Amit Shah will visit the Kashmir valley on June 30 and pay his obeisance at the Amarnath cave. However, the rising militant attacks on the security forces, cross border shelling and the casualties suffered by the CRPF and the Indian Army will be expectedly on the top of his agenda during the first ever Kashmir visit after taking over as the Home Minister of India.The State BJP unit has confirmed that Shah will also review the security arrangements in the valley especially on the eve of the holy Amarnath pilgrmage which would be a two-month long affair. After Shah was appointed as the union home minister, there have been 14 militant attacks in various parts of the valley with several CRPF soldiers as well as top ranked Indian Army officers being killed. A Station House Officer of the J&K Police posted in South Kashmir was also killed during a suicide attack on a CRPF patrolling party on the busy market in Anantnag district of South Kashmir.Bloody week in the valley In the past week, 10 security personnel were killed and 23 others injured in various militant attacks. After Pakistan shared intelligence inputs with India of a probable IED blast near Pulwama region of South Kashmir, a similar explosion was reported from the Arihal village of Pulwama in which two soldiers were killed.The object of the attack was an armoured vehicle belonging to RR Rashtriya Rifles of the Indian Army. The police and the Army later collected the wreckage of the car that was used in the IED blast. Pakistan High Commision had earlier shared inputs with the Indian and US counterparts of similar type of attack in South Kashmir. Encounter underway between terrorists and security forces in Panzgam village of Awantipora in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district.Twitter/ANITighter security norms on Shah’s agenda?The rising attacks on the security forces in the valley may figure in the agenda of the series of meetings that Shah is supposed to hold at Srinagar, according to security experts. Shah, who has been talking about giving greater autonomy to the security forces in the valley, may also bring up the issue with the concerned officials in J&K. The State BJP will also launch its maiden membership drive to garner support ahead of the crucial State Assembly polls, which could be held in few months from now.last_img read more

The longer a brain injury goes untreated, the higher the chance of permanent damage or death. And no brain injury is more insidious than the ones that cause hemorrhage. If unchecked, intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) and the edema that goes with it literally squeeze the brain to death.Although ICH accounts for no more than 13 percent of all strokes, it claims 20,000 lives annually in the United States. And it comes not just from stroke but also blunt force trauma, the kind that often accompanies car accidents and assaults.Recognizing this condition is a high priority in emergency medicine and, consequently, at vRAD, which interprets medical images for thousands of ERs across the U.S. On average, the results of emergency computed tomography (CT) of patients with intracranial bleeds are distributed, read and interpreted by vRAD neuroradiologists in 10 to 15 minutes.A smart algorithm, stoked with artificial intelligence, promises to cut that time in half.vRAD, also known as Virtual Radiologic (an affiliate of MEDNAX), is grooming the currently experimental algorithm as a traffic cop for its picture archiving and communication system (PACS) workflow. The algorithm, which has been taught to recognize the signs of intracranial bleeding in CT brain scans, is being trained to direct suspicious images to vRAD’s neuroradiologists.Shannon Werb, vRAD chief information officer, explains that the algorithm, working with vRAD’s PACS, is being developed to channel the images to neuroradiologists licensed to practice in the state where the patient was scanned. The first of these neuroradiologists to become available would immediately open the study. This could cut the time elapsed from exam to interpretation from the current 10 to 15 minutes to 5 or 10 minutes, Werb said.But before the algorithm can enter day-to-day operation, it must pass review at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The company is now preparing an FDA application, proposing to use the algorithm to smarten up its already FDA-cleared PACS. The algorithm’s patent filing will provide the basis for the application, he said.Unlike other AI applications being developed as diagnostic assistants, the vRAD algorithm is not about changing the practice of medicine. It is about making medicine more efficient, according to Werb.“This is not about replacing doctors,” he said. “We want to help physicians do a better job and do it more rapidly and more accurately.”  The algorithm will leave the practice of medicine to vRAD’s legion of radiologists, who provide preliminary interpretations during the day, and specialty and after-hours final interpretations.Contracting for these services are about 40 percent of the healthcare facilities in the United States, according to Werb, as well as facilities in ten more countries.The company orchestrates the interpretation of client images by assigning patient cases to the worklists of its radiologists. Assignments are made on the basis of radiologists’ special training or availability.“We do this 20,000 times a day across 2,000 facilities,” he said. Development of the algorithm for intracranial hemorrhage is part of an effort by vRAD to make its operations more efficient, using AI to speed diagnosis and, thereby, improve patient care. And that effort is only just getting started.Eventually the algorithm now in development may evolve to one that points neuroradiologists to specific areas in the CT images where they should look for signs of hemorrhage. And the company has plans to develop algorithms focused on life-threatening conditions besides intracranial bleeds. High on the list are pulmonary embolism and aortic tears. The goal, Werb said, is to “move technology close to the patient” so as to “tap the doctor on the shoulder a lot more rapidly.”One day the company may completely bridge the gap between exam and interpretation. Working in concert with equipment manufacturers, vRAD hopes to embed AI algorithms in the scanners themselves.This would allow the algorithms to flag suspicious images — while the patient is still on the scanner table.  Watch the VIDEO “Examples of Artificial Intelligence in Medical Imaging Diagnostics.” This shows an example of how AI can assess mammography images.

Go back to the enewsletter The cuisine of Italys

first_imgGo back to the enewsletterThe cuisine of Italy’s German- and Italian-speaking South Tyrol region, near the Austrian border, is nuanced and surprising. Hearty cold-weather dishes like polenta and canederli (dumplings) blend elements of German, Swiss and Austrian cooking, but also have plenty of Italian sophistication. Now ADLER Lodge ALPE, a cosy ski-in-ski-out resort on the country’s largest mountain plateau, is offering guests a chance to fully immerse themselves in the region’s food with the “Taste of South Tyrol” offer.The program includes:A tour and tasting at the Tramin winery, which is known for its GewürztraminerCheese and beer tastings to showcase locally produced specialtiesA visit with honey producer Runggaldier WernerA trip to David’s Goaslhof, a goat and dairy farmA baking lesson with ADLER Lodge ALPE pastry chef, Elisa KostnerActivities such as hiking, yoga, mountain biking and educational botanical walks (with a focus on medicinal herbs)It’s priced at €637 per person per night, based on a three- to seven-night stay.Overseeing the kitchen at ADLER Lodge ALPE is Chef Hannes Pignater, who has won a series of international awards including the Gold Medal at the World Skills Competition in St. Gallen, Switzerland and the Silver Medal at the Culinary Olympics in Erfurt, Germany. His style is simultaneously creative and authentic, with a focus on quality produce from South Tyrol that is sourced directly from committed farmers.The pastry chef, Elisa Kostner, also has an unusual approach to creating her mouthwatering desserts, which are rooted in the traditions of the Dolomite area but also have her own distinctive touches. “I don’t think about what I want to serve, be it mousse, ice cream or a cupcake, but rather what ingredients I want to use. These could be buckwheat, dandelion, quark, chamomile or honey pollen,” she says. The chefs’ use of local ingredients not only supports the Dolomites’ farmers, but also reduces the travel distances for delivery trucks and, as a result, carbon emissions. The hotel also serves only their own mountain spring water (either flat or sparkling), to avoid the shipping and excess waste associated with plastic water bottles.Open for all seasons, the hotel consists of a main building with 18 junior suites as well as 12 private, freestanding chalets, modelled after classic mountain huts, dotted throughout the property.The ADLER Lodge ALPE is set in its own loft within the main building; it’s home to a hay sauna, fitness centre and windows offering panoramic views of the rolling meadows and jagged Dolomite peaks.For more information: https://www.adler-resorts.com/en/Go back to the enewsletterlast_img read more
