GasLog to Convert LNG Carrier for Panama FSU Charter

first_imgOwner and operator of LNG carriers GasLog has signed a 10-year time charter related to an LNG floating storage unit (FSU) with Sinolam LNG Terminal, S.A.Under the deal, the unit would be provided for a gas-fired power project being developed near Colón, Panama.The time charter is expected to be fulfilled through the conversion of the GasLog Singapore, a 155,000 cubic meter, tri-fuel diesel electric LNG carrier built in 2010. The required modifications are such that, as well as being FSU ready, the vessel will still be able to trade as an LNG carrier following the conversion works, GasLog explained.The conversion will take place in conjunction with the vessel’s scheduled 5-year special survey in the third quarter of 2020, enabling both time and cost synergies with the vessel’s regular dry-docking.The charter commences on delivery of the FSU in Panama, which is scheduled for November 2020. The contract is for a fixed period, thereby delivering 100% utilization for the duration of the charter.GasLog estimates that the latest agreement would generate around USD 20 million of EBITDA per annum over its 10-year life.last_img read more

Angela Merkel doesn’t believe in gay marriage – ‘For me, personally, marriage is a man and a woman living together’

first_imgThe Independent 15 July 2015Angela Merkel has insisted that marriage should only be between a man and woman. The German Chancellor backed equal benefits for same-sex couples – such as tax breaks – and said that while discrimination should be “eliminated” she drew a “difference” between civil partnerships and marriage.But the committed Christian, who has been married twice, gave her personal definition of marriage as ‘a man and a woman living together’, in a YouTube interview with Florian Mundt, a YouTube known under the alias LeFloid who has a significant online following.“I’m someone who is very supportive of us eliminating all discrimination. We have come a long way; when I remember, 25 years ago, many people didn’t dare to say that they are gay or lesbian,” she said, according to the Huffington Post.“For me, personally, marriage is a man and a woman living together. That is my concept, but I support civil partnerships.”Ms Merkel went on to say stress that marriage should be strictly defined as between a man and a woman, adding: “I am for registered civil partnerships. I am for our not having any discrimination in tax legislation. And wherever we still find discrimination, we will continue to dismantle it,” according to German broadcaster Deutsche Welle.http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/angela-merkel-gay-marriage-vote-germany-10389762.htmllast_img read more

Kay tops IMCA Modified main to repeat as Governor’s Cup champ at Davenport

first_imgJustin Kay’s second straight Iowa Governor’s Cup championship came in the IMCA Modified division Friday night at Davenport Speedway. The victory paid $5,000. (Photo by Alan Goacher)DAVENPORT, Iowa (Sept. 22) – Even when you’ve won as often as Justin Kay has, you can en­joy new accomplishments.And on Friday night at Davenport Speedway, that feat was accompanied by a $5,000 check.Kay earned his second straight Iowa Governor’s Cup crown along with the IMCA Modified check­ers. His 2016 Governor’s Cup title had come with Late Models as the premiere division.“It was pretty cool. There were a lot of good cars here,” Kay said after the biggest payday of his Modified career. “It rained earlier in the week so the track was a little rough in spots, but I kept looking for the smoothest way around and tried not to let the car push.”He started fourth in the 25-lapper and passed Eric Barnes and then Kurt Kile to get to the front on the sixth circuit.Chris Simpson was running second when the final caution of the night came out, with six laps left.“I’ve raced with Chris enough in a Late Model that I was not going to give up the tires to him,” said Kay, already of the 2018 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot. “I just tried to hit my marks and not screw up.”Simpson, 20th starting Kelly Shryock, Kurt Kile and Milo Veloz rounded out the top five.Fifty-nine drivers vied for shares of the biggest Modified purse paid in track history.The 25th annual Governor’s Cup also resulted in the career-best payday for Karl Chevrolet North­ern SportMod winner Austen Becerra.Becerra started on the pole and led all 20 laps to take home $2,000. He’d made just two previous starts at Davenport, and won on Friday ahead of national points leader Tyler Soppe and defend­ing national champion Tony Olson.“It’s pretty awesome. We’ve known we had a fast car most of the season,” said Becerra, who dodged a bullet when he avoided getting caught up in the second of two lap 13 cautions. “It’s cool to be able to go to Davenport, race with those guys and win.”Becerra built up a lead of as much as a straightaway at one point. The $2,000 he earned doubled his previous career-best check.Brayton Carter and Dustin Schram rounded out the Northern SportMod top five.FeaturesModifieds – 1. Justin Kay; 2. Chris Simpson; 3.

No rebuilding here, Badgers in position to contend

first_imgUW has been celebrating quite a bit as of late. Wisconsin’s 17 wins are tied for 2nd nationally.[/media-credit]Eighteen games into the 2010-11 season, the Wisconsin men’s hockey team played the way it was expected to.The Badgers were 8-7-3. They were raw and inconsistent. Their inexperience was evident, and it looked as though they would have to fight all year for a final spot in the NCAA tournament. With all the talent that was lost from last year’s squad that advanced to the national title game, this was no surprise.But things have changed.After splitting a series with lowly Alaska Anchorage in early December, UW went on to win nine of its next 10 contests, with the only loss coming on the road against No.5 Minnesota Duluth. The Badgers currently hold a 10-game winning streak at home, which hasn’t been done since 1985.Wisconsin has vaulted up to No. 7 in the rankings with a 17-8-3 record. Interestingly enough, last year’s team was 17-8-4 at this point. Now, UW is now seven points away from first-place Denver in the ultra-competitive WCHA.All of the sudden the Badgers, loaded with freshmen all throughout the lineup, don’t look so young anymore.Sounding like veteransHead coach Mike Eaves has had to do a lot of talking this season with two new assistant coaches and a small senior class.During games, Eaves would dominate the conversation on the bench, motivating his players and barking out orders – something he rarely had to do last year.But after UW played Minnesota State last weekend, Eaves realized he hadn’t said as much on the bench. It became clear that this team had matured when the Mavericks scored to tie game two of the series.“It was interesting; most times when we get scored against, it’s the coaches that are saying “let’s respond, let’s respond’,” Eaves explained. “But in this case, it was the players. That is a sign of growth.”Center Craig Smith and the Badgers responded less than a minute later to retake the lead. The Badgers went on to win, 3-2, and sweep the series.Learning in the film roomEaves has noticed growth away from the ice as well.This time, the Badgers made an impression while watching video of their penalty killing effort against the Mavericks in game one. Eaves and his staff didn’t like what they saw, but more importantly, neither did the Badgers.Once again, the player’s voices were heard loud and clear, this time in the film room.“Last night we were scrambling, and we weren’t as concise as we wanted to be,’” Eaves said of the PK unit after the game last Friday. “Coach Butters did a good job, as well as the penalty killers. It was a great meeting, and the players were talking and asking questions. They got up at the board and were a part of the process. Going through that helped us to be more concise and detailed.”The Badgers held MSU scoreless on the power play the next night, and UW’s one goal with man-advantage proved to the difference.Thriving in tight gamesEarlier in the year, close games like the ones UW experienced against MSU weren’t kind to the Badgers.But after losing the first five one-goal games of the season, Wisconsin has flipped the script, winning the last five one-goal contests.This team isn’t folding in pressure-packed situations, and as a result, the wins keeps coming.“When we lose one-goal games, we try to learn as much as possible from our loss. Every one of those games we use has a learning experience,” senior goaltender Scott Gudmandson said. “We felt how bitter we were after every one-goal loss we had and now we feel how happy and excited we can be after we win.”There has been plenty to celebrate thanks to Gudmandson and the UW defensemen, who are putting the Badgers in a position to win each night. Gudmandson holds the top save percentage and goals-against average in the conference, and as a team, UW is toughest team to score against in the country – allowing just 2.04 goals a game.Wisconsin’s past four wins have all come by just a single goal.That sure sounds like playoff hockey.Sky is the limitThis unprecedented turnaround has been a result of the players’ maturation along with their film study and mental toughness. But the rise in confidence started at the practice rink, and that positive energy has translated to success on the weekends.“We saw things this weekend that we are really excited about because we worked on them in practice, and they’re executing in games,” Eaves said after the MSU series. “And as a coach, that really charges you up… when you go back and show the kids feedback, they go, ‘this stuff really does work’.”The winning may come as a surprise to those outside the locker room, but assistant captain Jake Gardiner and the Badgers’ other top performers, namely Justin Schultz and Craig Smith who have scored 29 goals combined, have consistently produced at an elite level. With that type of production, they expect to compete with the best.“At Christmas I would say I was surprised. But the way we’ve been playing lately and the way guys have stepped up… it’s awesome,” Gardiner said.They were regarded as a young, rebuilding team at the start of the year, but the Badgers’ play has earned them a new label: contenders.“Where we can go, I’d like to say it’s unlimited,” Eaves said.last_img read more

What we learned from Syracuse’s blowout loss to Wisconsin

first_img Published on November 29, 2016 at 11:35 pm Contact Connor: cgrossma@syr.edu | @connorgrossman MADISON, Wis. — Syracuse fell quickly and quietly in its first true road game of the season. No. 17 Wisconsin (6-2) dizzied No. 22 SU (4-2) with its ball movement and bolted past the Orange, 77-60, on Tuesday night in the Kohl Center.At times the Orange was bit by its inexperience with the zone defense, and offensively it never gained much traction, starting with the two ringleaders in point guards John Gillon and Frank Howard.Here are three things we learned from Tuesday’s loss, the second straight for Syracuse.When Syracuse needs offense, it has to start from the point guardsThe luxury of two quality point guards has been apparent for the Orange since the season began. Howard brings an intellectual perspective atop the offense, whizzing passes most other players on the court aren’t capable of. Gillon brings a jolt of speed and is capable of jumpstarting the offense with his shot or rapid ball movement.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut when neither player could fully execute his skill set, or at least not for long enough, the offense gridlocked. SU dispatched more one-on-one action on offense than it would have liked, and the results were evident.“It starts with us,” Howard said of the offensive movement. “I wasn’t really on the floor to do a lot of that in the second half. It just is what it is.”Gillon was on the floor for 24 minutes, and the most offensive traction he could gain is when he took the ball to the hoop himself. He made only three shots, but was fouled multiple times and shot 4-of-5 from the free-throw line.The most consistent offensive action was from Andrew White behind the arc. He notched 14 points in a 4-of-9 night from 3-point land. No other player could muster anything more.The zone will not come easy, especially against lethal ball movementWith a nine-man rotation and five significant contributors playing their first year with SU, struggles with zone were anticipated. But that doesn’t make dealing with it any easier, especially losing big to a team the Orange, on paper, are supposed to compete with.To credit the Badgers, the hosts displayed some of the best ball movement of any team in the country. Wisconsin assisted on 72 percent of its 29 field goals, led by Nigel Hayes’ 10 helpers. The Big Ten Preseason Player of the Year delivered entry passes and zipped balls across the arc, consistently finding open shooters all around the half-court.But therein lied the problem for Syracuse, which was initially surprised by the Badgers’ propensity to shoot the 3 after struggling all season around the arc. So as SU’s zone stretched out, that left the inside more vulnerable. Without taking a single 3, Ethan Happ led all scorers with 24 points on 10-of-12 shooting.He swept underneath the zone, catching freshman Taurean Thompson and the entire front court off guard.“We have a lot of guys trying to figure out exactly what we’re doing,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said.Dajuan Coleman injected some life back into Syracuse’s frontcourtBoeheim was blunt after Saturday’s loss to South Carolina, saying both Paschal Chukwu and Dajuan Coleman weren’t ready to play against a top team. He still might be right, but Coleman’s performance Tuesday was a nudge in the right direction.Syracuse’s defense was tattered for much of the night, but offensively, Coleman showed more ability to get up shots than he had all season. He tallied 12 points, almost all of them coming directly beneath the basket. Twice in the opening five minutes, he backed down the 6-foot-10 Happ in the low block.He correctly timed his turns to the basket and muscled both early baskets in. While Boeheim acknowledged Tyler Lydon is best positioned to score when he plays center, SU needs the protection and physicality Coleman can provide. Chukwu’s inability to progress at the onset of this season only highlights that need. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
