Trinidad & Tobago new patrol boats to get BAE Systems RIBs

first_img View post tag: BAe Systems Vessels View post tag: Patrol Boats June 25, 2020, by Trinidad & Tobago patrol boats to get BAE Systems RIBs In addition to the standard technical features of the MKIV P24 boat, custom modifications supplied to Austal included the installation of a ground plate that will enable Austal to supply and fit its own radio communications system.  The RIBs, built and customised in Portsmouth, UK, are being supplied to Austal to equip two Cape-class patrol boats the shipbuilder is building for the Trinidad and Tobago Coast Guard. Posted: about 1 year ago The P24 is a small and agile boat that can be deployed for a variety of tasks from counter-piracy and counter-narcotics missions, to force protection, rescue and logistics operations. It is used by a number of military customers, including the Royal Navy. “It’s great to see our P24s on their way to deliver an enhanced capability for the government of Trinidad and Tobago Coast Guard in collaboration with Austal,” Brooke Hoskins, Director of Products and Training Services for BAE Systems’ Maritime Services business, said.

These include the UK’s new aircraft carriers, HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales, all its Type 45 destroyers, Type 23 frigates and offshore patrol vessels. BAE Systems has sold six Pacific 24 rigid inflatable boats (RIBs) to Australia’s Austal for new Trinidad and Tobago Coast Guard ships.

Photo: BAE Systems The P24’s seating arrangements – six passengers and two crew – will be specially configured for coast guard operations, including the ability to remove seats in order to boost carrying capacity and carry different loads including stretcher patients or different numbers of passengers. The MKIV version of the P24 incorporates the latest technologies in hull construction, including improved shock mitigation and propulsion, and provides extra safety to craft and crew by complying with rigorous Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) testing procedures.

Lessons of the Week! Cheyenne Jackson, Rosie O’Donnell & More

first_imgFriday is the best day of the week. No, not because it’s the last day before a long weekend or because the happy hour deals are amazing. Because on Fridays, takes a look back at all of the crazy stuff that happened in the last seven days! It’s Lessons of the Week time, guys. Pay attention.Cheyenne Jackson Has a Musical BedSusan Blackwell hijacked our dreams when she snuggled up next to Jackson in his hotel room at the Carlyle and somehow convinced him to sing “Feeling Good” while she felt him up. First you licked Darren Criss, then you met Lea Michele the Goat… What’s next, engagement ring shopping with Aaron Tveit?!Sienna Miller Went to Karaoke SchoolSoon-to-be Cabaret star Sienna Miller doesn’t have any formal singing training, but everything she needs to know she learned by drinking vodka and singing karaoke. Forget Juilliard! We always thought Cabaret could use a wasted cover of “Total Eclipse of the Heart” in the second act.James Snyder’s the Mark Cohen of If/ThenYou’d think Anthony Rapp would be the Mark Cohen of If/Then by default, but when you watch video blogger James Snyder sit on the sidelines and document the cast singing “Seasons of Love” with his Canon Vixia, you’ll understand. Hey, he’s already dated Idina Menzel (on stage, anyway). Now all he needs is a scarf and an extreme aversion to leases.Rosie O’Donnell Knows Olaf…IntimatelyNo one knows more about Frozen than its stars, right? Wrong. Rosie O’Donnell knows more about Frozen THAN EVERYONE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. She knows every line. Do NOT mess with her. Don’t. Seriously. She will hurt you. She almost made Josh Gad cry. Trust us on this. Seriously.Martin Short Can Sew a Mean HemIt’s Only a Play star Martin Short is a fantastic actor, comedian and impressionist, but he also has another special skill he’s been keeping under wraps: Apparently, he’s the fastest hemmer in the West. Martin Short, since you’re a man of many talents, could you sew us a coat of many colors? Preferably one like this.Rock Stars Have Secret IdentitiesWhen we got seven original Rock of Ages stars wasted and asked them to divulge their secrets, we found out so much about the “Equity cock,” breasticle autographs and more. But the most surprising thing we discovered is these guys aren’t actually rock stars. In fact, Adam Dannheisser is “just a neurotic Jew living in New Jersey.” What?! Next you’re going to tell us Caroline Bowman isn’t really green.Golden Globes & Oscars Make MistakesWell, the Academy clearly wasn’t as enchanted by the Into the Woods movie as we were. Sometimes the things you most wish for are not to be touched. But even if it’s out of the running for Best Picture, we can still hold on to our dream of Meryl Streep putting Emma Stone and Patricia Arquette under a spell on Oscar night.Sarah Brightman Is Blasting Off (Finally)After years of dreaming, original Phantom star Sarah Brightman has finally arrived in Russia for her space flight training (at the price of $52 million). There’s only one problem—she has a cold, so classes are postponed until she’s feeling better. Just remember, Sarah: there are no understudies in space.The Next Big Broadway Star Could Be YouAs Sienna Miller would say, forget Juilliard! All you need to be a Broadway star is a stage mother and a dream. The new musical School of Rock is holding open auditions for tiny rock gods. Who needs actual elementary school when you can pretend to be in fourth grade in front of thousands of strangers?Super Bowl XLIX = Nachos, Beer & BeltingQuick, name the first thing you think of when you think of the Super Bowl. Commercials? Nah. Big sweaty dudes tackling each other? Nope. A giant tub of bean dip shaped like a stadium? No way. It’s Idina Menzel, on hand for every special occasion! It’s just not a New Year’s Eve, Oscar night, All-Star game or trip to the grocery store without her. View Commentslast_img read more

Concern Over Adriano’s Continued Isolation In Rio While Inter Waits

first_imgBy Dialogo April 08, 2009 The residency in Rio de Janeiro of the striker Adriano, and his stay in a dangerous favela, generated concern among leaders and the press, who speculated that the soccer player has emotional or personal problems that he should resolve before returning to Italy. ‘The Emperor’ has not yet set a date for his return to Milan, where he is expected by Inter’s leaders and his coach, the Portuguese José Mourinho, who is concerned and baffled by the situation which his agent, Gilmar Rinaldi, described as a “serious” problem. “Adriano has problems like everyone else. And he will resolve them before returning to Italy,” said Rinaldi, who denied that Adriano had problems with drugs or links with drug traffickers, as reported in local media. “If I had that kind of problem, I would not be safe in that area,” he said. Adriano, age 27, was cited for the matches that Brazil disputed last week with Ecuador (1-1) and Peru (3-0) in the South American playoffs, and should have traveled to Italy on Thursday to participate in Inter’s practice the next day. Surprisingly he did not, and stayed in Rio. This Monday, after rumors of a possible kidnapping in the dangerous favela of the German Complex (north) by drug traffickers, the head of the Anti-Kidnapping Department of the Rio Civil Police, Marcus Reimao, said that this was not correct and confirmed that while Adriano did spend three days there, his visit was not linked to criminals. ‘The Emperor,’ who was born in this complex, went to visit childhood friends for support after a fight with his girlfriend, personal trainer Joana Machado, age 28, who left him after learning of an alleged party that the player gave before joining the selection of Brazil. “He was very depressed and was with his friends, many of whom are known for being involved with drugs,” Reimao told local media, but Rinaldi’s assured them that the problem has “nothing to do with his girlfriend.” Even the Brazilian Confederation was forced to declare: “Adriano (…) is at home with his family in Rio de Janeiro.” He pointed out that both the green-and-yellow DT Dunga and Inter leaders have “regular contact” with him. This is the latest of various incidents caused by Adriano. The previous was in January when, after spending Christmas and New Year in Brazil, he arrived in Milan a day after his contract required. In addition, he was relegated in the team for his conduct and was the target of the press several times for his late-night activities. Inter’s discomfort with his lack of discipline and other problems could cost him extra football sanctions and fines, in addition to an eventual trade to another club.last_img read more

Southern Tier veterinary practices prepare for full re-openings

first_img(WBNG) – A few days after Governor Andrew Cuomo gave veterinary practices in New York State the green light to start re-opening more fully, veterinarians here in the Southern Tier are making sure they have all their safety protocols. “We also have implemented a medication pick-up window for clients so that they necessarily don’t have to come into the building,” said Dr. Sara Shafer, an associate veterinarian. “These are trying times and we’re all doing our very best.” These guidelines include limiting clients in the building, screening staff and clients upon arrival, logging cleaning routines, and enforcing social distancing. Dr. Shafer said the practice will start taking appointments like wellness check-ups, rather than solely focusing on emergency services which they and many other practices had previously done before Cuomo’s announcement.  Veterinary care was considered an essential service in the state during the COVID-19 pandemic, and many practices across the state have been operating curbside care, which allows doctors to treats pets while limiting the number of people inside the building. Dr. Diane Wittner is the co-owner of Fur and Feathers Veterinary care, and told 12 News the practice is closely following guidelines listed under the New York State Forward plan.center_img Some pet owners, like Blake McCabe, have expressed their desire to get back to in-person vet visits. Over in Vestal, the Vestal Veterinary Hospital is taking similar measures to enforce a safe experience. “We live with our animals so we obviously have a better understanding of the nuances of their behavior,” McCabe said. “People always talk about stressed an animal gets when they go to the vet, how they don’t want to go. The owners get stressed, too.” Dr. Wittner told 12 News there is no exact time frame to when her practice will allow regular walk-ins to Fur and Feathers, choosing to take it one day at a time.last_img read more

From now on, apartments on the island of Vir can be paid in cryptocurrencies

first_imgWith ninety-six apartments that have recently been offered the possibility of advance payment and reservation of accommodation via cryptocurrencies on the Slovak blog Vir Island, and given the size of the island, population and number of accommodation units, Vir has become one of the world’s leading providers of crypto services. Source / photo: Vir Tourism; Pexels Cryptocurrencies, known as virtual or digital currencies, exist only online; they have not been issued, nor are they supervised by any central bank. Bitcoin is the most famous cryptocurrency, also known as digital gold, and is globally accepted for online payments. Today, several bitcoin ATMs also exist in Croatia – in Zagreb, Split and Rijeka, and the popularity of using bitcoin is also contributed by entrepreneurs, such as Virco, who accept it in online payments for tourist accommodation or other services. Ms. Miriam is the most influential Slovak woman from Vir and the promoter of Vir in Slovakia and the Czech Republic, so through her work and bringing the Travel Channel television team to Vir, the island has a thriving Slovak tourist market. Vir influencer and blogger is also a Slovak and Czech association of apartment and apartment owners on the island of Vir, some of whom have already started receiving payments for payments in cryptocurrencies BTC, BCH, LTC, ETH and USDC. According to Arbolet, the service is connected to the Coinbase Commerce system, whose user interface is simple, intuitive to use and above all easy to understand. “I’ve been thinking for a long time about the possibility of paying with cryptocurrencies, but I didn’t know the area well enough. Mr. Václav helped me the most”, Says Ms. Miriam, thanks to which accommodation in Vir can now be paid for in cryptocurrency, ie by booking through her blog Island Vir. These 96 apartments paid in cryptocurrency represent 2,51 percent of the total Vir accommodation capacity of 3.819 accommodation units. In fact, the percentage in foreign exchange is higher because the number of apartments is an absolute number of one hundred percent occupancy with payment by card or cash, which means that the share of cryptocurrency in foreign exchange by the summer season will certainly be even higher. Apart from the fact that cryptocurrencies are used for online payments, they are traded like any other currency. Thus, the value of bitcoin nine years ago was $ 0,003, and last year it was more than $ 9.000. Today, there are hundreds of other cryptocurrencies and new ones appear almost every day. Some survive and grow, some die out, but the growth of the crypto market is steady. That is why more and more online stores are offering cryptocurrency payments, while digital wallet owners want offers in which they can exchange their cryptocurrency units for products or services. This story was recently published by the Czech portal Arbolet, whose online team provides consulting and work services in the crypto market. Their member Václav got in touch with Miriam Kelečić, who edits the blog and mediates in renting apartments in Vir to tourists from Slovakia and the Czech Republic, so the island’s crypto market is almost immediately open to members of this large community.last_img read more

UGP warns: Croatia is unprepared for tourists potentially positive for covid-19

first_imgBut the UGP also warns how to Procedure doesn’t write anything about the main problem – where will the renter of the apartment with his guests in case of infection with the COVID-19 virus? The Croatian Institute of Public Health announced on June 19th Procedure in case of illness in a guest in a tourist accommodation facility at the time of the COVID-19 pandemic. So, only three weeks after the opening of Croatian borders for the entry of foreign nationals, point out the UGP and add that the delay in publishing recommendations at a time when we have more than 150.000 foreign nationals a day in the country, is not good news. Photo: The guest must feel safe! The guest must know that in case of infection he will have medical care, that his family will be located in a specific location during the isolation, that he will be able to leave the country in cooperation with all relevant services. And all this information and instructions already had to be the main, constant and most important information on every website of all tourist boards, the Ministry of Tourism and all relevant portals that guests visit looking for just such information, conclude from UGP. The CNIPH brings the problem down to the local level, to local self-government units and local civil protection headquarters. And while the counties, cities and local headquarters of CZ agree and figure out how to organize everything, the care actually remains with the landlord himself. They would have to, like larger tourist complexes, now, quickly organize tourist clinics. Organizing means not only providing space and equipment, but also hiring medical teams, providing them with accommodation and pay, and special protective equipment and diagnostics for Covid-19. For many of the 555 local self-government units, this is simply impossible – warn the UGP and point out that it would be much more rational to, of course, strengthen the capacities of the existing subregional health centers earlier. Tourism workers remain concerned with countless questions. “So, on June 21, with 150 tourists, open borders, in the season itself, still no one answered the key questions. What should I, the renter of the apartment, do today if it is established that my guest is infected with corona? Where am I going with his family? Is accommodation organized for them? How long does the whole procedure take? Do I, as a landlord, also have to be in self-isolation because I have been in contact with the infected? Who will then bring them breakfast, lunch and dinner, even though I have no board and no registered food and beverage service at all? What about guests in other apartments? Do they also have to isolate themselves? Do I feed them at the same time? What about a guest who has already booked the same apartment tomorrow but cannot come because the accommodation is still occupied? What should I answer to my potential, future guests when they ask me a question like this? ” said Gordana Fabijanic, from the UGP Tourism Committee. If we are a tourist destination, if we have “opened” the season, if guests arrive, if we have announcements and reservations, if we have opened borders, then even before the season we should have determined the exact schedule, criteria with clear and precise procedures for solving problems with infected guests. and his family from apartments, hotels, camps.  The Government of the Republic of Croatia has not adopted an adequate timetable in case of arrival of tourists positive for the corona virus. Only three weeks after the “opening” of the borders for foreign tourists, the CNIPH issued instructions for tourist workers in case their guests tested positive for Covid-19. But even with instructions like this, little is clear. More precisely, the only thing that is clear is that there is no concrete plan for such guests.Association Voice of Entrepreneurs “Regional and local civil protection headquarters together with regional and local self-government units must organize isolation / quarantine for COVIDA patients. It would be more appropriate for such isolation and quarantine centers to be established in one place for the whole region, as was the case in the acute phase of the epidemic. This instruction creates unnecessary confusion and wastes valuable time. The ability to organize is diminished. According to the instructions of the CNIPH, an employee, ie a person in the household in which the accommodation service is provided, and who were in close contact with a confirmed infected person, must be subjected to isolation in the home or organized isolation unit. We have a few problems here. First, who will decide what close contact is if anti-epidemic measures are respected in the accommodation facility? Second, isolating employees and hosts in accommodation is a poor solution. Firstly, because in two weeks there is a suspicion of infection, so all other tourists will leave such a facility. Secondly, these people will not be able to work, so the damage to them and the household, the catering facility will be great. Third, compliance with anti-epidemic measures will have no effect, that residence is unsafe and tourist traffic is impossible. The only correct solution would be to test such suspicious employees and staff for the presence of the Covid virus 19.” said Nedo Pinezić, coordinator of the Subcommittee for Small Landlords of the Voice of Entrepreneurs Association.last_img read more
