Quick response from Volga-Dnepr

first_img“After receiving an urgent customer request, our engineers in Ulyanovsk developed a load plan and multipurpose shipping cradle to load the cargo of 19 m pipes, while the manufacturing of the cradle was organised by our Stansted team,” explained Huseyn Mammadli, logistics executive at Volga-Dnepr’s engineering and logistics centre (ELC).Whilst the cradle was being manufactured, Volga-Dnepr’s ELC arranged the renting of cranes for loading, as well as a trailer to deliver the pipes to Scotland’s Prestwick Airport. Extra loading equipment was also delivered to the UK from Leipzig in Germany especially for this flight.Despite a strong 20 mph wind in Prestwick on the day of the loading, the technical crew of the aircraft managed to successfully build up the loading complex, install the pipes in the cradle and lift the cargo into the IL-76TD-90VD freighter aircraft’s cargo hold, explained Mammadli.The oil production equipment was delivered on behalf of DHL Global Forwarding to Istanbul’s Sabiha Gökçen International Airport, and is destined for use in exploration and drilling projects on Turkey’s Black Sea shelf.  www.volga-dnepr.comwww.dhl.comlast_img read more

Massage Envy therapists accused of sexual assault by more than 180 women

first_imgMassage Envy therapists accused of sexual assault by more than 180 women Port Charlotte Massage Envy employee arrested for sexual assault Author: CBS News Published: November 27, 2017 9:32 AM EST Updated: November 27, 2017 2:29 PM EST NEW YORK (CBS) Popular national chain Massage Envy faces allegations of sexual assault – and that it mishandled those claims.An investigation by BuzzFeed News found more than 180 women have accused therapists at Massage Envy of groping and other sexual acts. Massage Envy told CBS News their therapists have done 125 million massages over the past 15 years. Still, it said even one incident is too many, reports CBS News’ Meg Oliver.Susan Ingram said her masseur turned into a sexual predator during her seventh visit with him at a Massage Envy location in 2015.“I was really in a state of shock, disbelief, fear,” Ingram said.She said it started when James Deiter began rubbing his groin against her.“He lifted up my body, groped both of my breasts roughly and aggressively. Put his hands down to the lower part of my body,” Ingram said.Too disturbed to report the assault immediately, she called the manager after she got home.“She said in a very apparently scripted response, ‘We invite you in to talk about your services.’ And I said, ‘No, no, no you don’t understand,’” Ingram said.According to BuzzFeed News, Ingram is just one of more than 180 women who “have filed sexual assault lawsuits, police reports, and state board complaints against Massage Envy spas, their employees, and the national company. … Over 100 reported that massage therapists groped their genitals, groped their breasts, or committed other explicit violations.”“What stood out to you the most in your reporting?” Oliver asked BuzzFeed News investigative reporter Katie Baker.“I think that the descriptions of the sexual assault claims that I harbor are really horrific,” Baker said. “But to me, it’s awful to be assaulted when you’re in a very vulnerable position… But I think that for some women it’s even worse to go and report what happened to you and not have it taken seriously.”According to BuzzFeed, Massage Envy only requires franchises to conduct internal investigations of abuse claims except in the few states that require notification of local law enforcement.“I just found that these Massage Envy spa employees were not equipped to handle serious allegations of sexual assault all on their own,” Baker said.Massage Envy has more than 1,100 locations serving more than 1.5 million members. In a statement, it said: “We are constantly listening, learning and looking at how we can do more, including how we support franchised locations with best practices in handling these incidents and supporting their clients.”“It should be something that they should train for and have an understanding of how to respond,” Ingram said.After Ingram filed a formal police report, Deiter pleaded guilty to sexually molesting a total of nine female clients and is now behind bars. Citing court records, BuzzFeed said “two of those women had tried to warn the spa about Deiter before Ingram had.”“Massage Envy needs to stop, needs to protect, needs to apologize…and to do the right thing,” Ingram said.Ingram is suing Massage Envy and taking other steps to make sure spa companies do the right thing. She helped draft federal legislation that would require massage spas to report sexual assault allegations to police. We reached out to the franchise where Ingram said she was assaulted, but they declined to comment.center_img Do you see a typo or an error? Let us know. Recommended SHARElast_img read more

ARKLESS RESPONDS TO POLICE SCOTLAND’S ESTATE REVIEW

I will support my constituents fully throughout the consultation to ensure that the police continue to meet the needs of our communities.’ AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInLocal MP Richard Arkless has described Police Scotland’s plans to streamline the number of police stations across Dumfries and Galloway as ‘disappointing’ and has urged people across Dumfries and Galloway to make their voices heard in the community consultation which has been set up to explore alternative options. ‘Although disappointing, this is about closing offices where no one works.  Police Scotland are considering a range of alternative options such as the possibility of sharing facilities which is being explored in Kirkcudbright, to maintain a police presence in our communities. Commenting, Mr Arkless said: A consultation with community groups, elected representatives, partners and community leaders is to begin to ensure that the proposals are fully understood throughout the community and alternative options are explored.center_img ‘It is important to remember in light of this news, that this review will not result in any job losses and it will not affect the police response times. Police Scotland has launched a consultation to examine the current use of police stations in Dumfries and Galloway. They have undertaken a survey of the viability of unstaffed stations with a low footfall and found that Whithorn, Dalry, Kirkcudbright and Dalbeattie in the west of the region and Moffat, Gretna, Thornhill and Langholm in the east, all meet the criteria for potential rationalisation or change of use with a view to removing them from the local police estate profile. ‘If anyone would like to contact me regarding this matter, I would ask them to email me at richard.arkless.mp@parliament.uk or phone my office on 01387 265 698. ‘Re-evaluating the resources you have and establishing whether they are being utilised correctly is a sensible thing to do however I acknowledge that the loss of any facility, even an underused one, to a rural community is upsetting and I fully understand the concerns of local people.’last_img read more

Union to request investigation from government

first_imgGeneral Secretary of the Dominica Public Service Union (DPSU), Thomas LetangThe Union representing employees of the Public Works Corporation has announced its intention to request an investigation into the allocation of road projects, in light of salary payments owed its members. General Secretary of the Dominica Public Service Union (DPSU) Thomas Letang made the announcement while speaking to the media on Tuesday, March 12th.He said the Union is satisfied that the Ministry of Finance allocates adequate finances for the Cooperation to undertake projects which will ensure that the employees are employed throughout the year.However, according to Mr Letang, notwithstanding the allocation made by the Finance Ministry, Public Works employees have not been paid since January month end.“There are a number of persons who are given projects, who throughout the entire year undertake these projects and are paid, while Public Works employees are not given those projects and even when they are given projects, they are not paid on time,” Mr. Letang noted.The investigation, he further stated, will seek to clarify what criteria is used for allocation of projects.“The union has decided to write to the Prime Minister asking for a full investigation as to how road works and road projects are allocated. What is the criteria being used to select people to undertake certain projects, because at the end of the day it is very unfair that some people continue to be employed doing the very same thing that public works people can do,” he added.Mr. Letang said this is a situation which has been going on for too long and he believes that it is time to “put an end to it”.He noted that the employees are back at work but “no activity” is taking place and the Union’s position is that, “until such time that the employees are paid; things will not return to normal”.On Monday, March 11th 80% of the staff called in sick which interrupted operations at the institution. This was in response to non-payment of salaries for almost three fortnights and one month after the Corporation’s management was given a deadline of Friday, March 8th to make these payments.

first_img Tweet Mr Baucelin presenting a copy of the DVD to director of tourism, Colin Piper (left)The City of Roseau has been featured in a DVD dubbed ‘Cities of the Caribbean’ produced by Martiniquan videographer Patrick Baucelin. Over the past three years, Mr Baucelin has visited thirty-two cities within the Caribbean, including Roseau, to produce the DVD.The seventy-minute DVD, which is in three languages; English, French and Spanish, features two minute segments on each of the thirty-two cities.

Ada Tujuh Tiket di Jaringan Perkeretaapian Jepang, Jangan Salah Pilih Ya!

first_imgKereta Cepat Shinkansen, Jepang. Sumber: wikipedia Terkenal sebagai salah satu destinasi wisata favorit nan kaya akan unsur kebudayaannya, tak ayal membuat Jepang menjadi salah satu negara yang masuk ke dalam daftar plesir orang banyak. Selain aspek kebudayaannya yang sangat kental, Jepang juga terkenal akan jaringan transportasi – khususnya kereta yang sangat masif. Seolah sudah menjelma menjadi tulang punggung transportasi di Jepang, ular besi yang ada di Negeri Sakura ini tidak pernah sepi dari penumpang.Baca Juga: Beragam Alasan Mengapa Orang Jepang Fanatik Pada Sosok KeretaNah, rasanya sayang sekali jika Anda melewatkan kesempatan untuk menjajal jaringan perkeretaapian di Jepang yang sudah sangat mendunia ini. Tapi tunggu dulu, peribahasa “di mana dipijak, di situ langit dijunjung” akan berlaku ketika Anda membeli tiket. Berbeda dengan di Indonesia, berikut KabarPenumpang.com himpun 7 jenis tiket yang dijual oleh operator layanan kereta api di Jepang, dikutip dari berbagai laman sumber. Tiket RegulerIni merupakan jenis tiket yang biasa Anda temui di Indonesia – yang membedakan hanyalah sistem perhitungan besaran tarifnya saja. Untuk kereta jarak dekat, Anda cukup merogoh kocek sebesar 20 yen atau yang setara dengan Rp2.600 per kilometernya. Sedangkan untuk kereta jarak jauh, per kilometernya Anda akan dikenai biaya sebesar 10 yen atau yang setara dengan Rp1.300. Lokasi pembeliannya pun sama seperti di Indonesia, yaitu di loket atau mesin tiket yang tersedia di setiap stasiun.IC CardIni mirip dengan kartu e-money yang biasa Anda temui di Indonesia – dimana para penumpang akan melakukan pembayaran dengan sistem prabayar. Semisal saldonya habis, Anda bisa melakukan pengisian ulang di gerai-gerai tertentu. Tidak hanya dapat digunakan untukmembeli tiket kereta api, IC Card juga dapat digunakan untuk berbelanja di minimarket atau restoran tertentu. Untuk mendapatkannya, Anda bisa membelinya di loket atau mesin tiket yang ada di setiap stasiun.Seishun 18 KippuTiket yang satu ini tidak ada di Indonesia, karena dengan menggunakan Seishun 18 Kippu, Anda bisa menikmati perjalanan selama lima hari tanpa batas untuk berkeliling Jepang dengan menggunakan kereta lokal atau kereta cepat. Per harinya, Anda akan dikenai biaya 2.370yen atau yang setara dengan Rp313.000. Semisal Anda tidak mau ribet, cukup ambil tiket per lima hari lansgun yang dibanderol 11.850yen (Rp1,57 juta). Tapi, Seishun 18 Kippu hanya dijual tiga kali dalam setahun selama musim liburan sekolah.Japan Rail PassBisa dibilang, ini merupakan induk dari tiket kereta yang bisa digunakan untuk semua jenis kereta JR dari Kagoshima di selatan Jepang hingga ujung utara Hokkaido. Moda yang dapat diakses pun tidak hanya sebatas kereta api saja, melainkan bus hingga kapal ferry yang tergabung dalam perusahaan Japan Rail. Japan Rail Pass hanya bisa digunakan turis asing yang berlibur ke Jepang.JR Tokyo Wide Pass JR Tokyo Wide Pass bisa digunakan tanpa batas oleh para pemegang paspor non-Jepang untuk kereta JR (termasuk shinkansen dan limited express train) dan kereta non-JR di wilayah Kanto selama tiga hari berturut-turut. Tiket jenis ini bisa dibeli di Bandara Narita, Bandara Haneda dan beberapa stasiun di antaranya stasiun Tokyo, Shinagawa, Shinjuku, Shibuya, Yokohama, Ueno, Mito dan Ikebukuro.Baca Juga: Istilah ‘Chikan’ Masuk Kamus Internasional Berkat Tingginya Angka Pelecehan Seksual di Kereta JepangSpecial PassTiket terusan ini ditujukan bagi siapa saja yang sering mengular dengan kereta di jalur yang sama – jadi mereka tidak harus mengantri di loket setiap hari untuk beli tiket. Dengan begitu, antrean di loket juga bisa diminimalisir, bukan?Subway Pass Sesuai dengan namanya, ini ditujukan bagi para penumpang jaringan kereta bawah tanah Jepang yang terdiri dari Tokyo Metro dan Toei Subway. Tidak seperti tiket kereta lainnya, Subway Pass hanya bisa dibeli di stasiun bawah tanah saja.

Kenai Competes For Hilcorp Parking

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享There was a scuffle at this week’s Kenai City Council meeting as the body approved a parking space lease with Hilcorp for just over $2,150. Dan Pitts has been leasing parking space to Hilcorp for about ten weeks… Because Pitt’s land is leased from the City, he had to get official approval of the lease. Originally, the City had offered $4,000 a month for their parking, so Pitts offered $3,500. Pitts: “They called me and asked for parking. They said that the City wouldn’t guarantee them 30-50 spaces for their employees.” Pitts: “Well I would have liked the City Council to recognize the unfairness of the situation and possibly reject the special use permit that they granted, but Hilcorp needs a place to park and if they don’t like parking with the City, they may come back to me. I support them. I’d like to see them do well in the area.” Pitts met with City Manager Rick Koch last Monday, after he returned from a trip out of state, to discuss the change in the City’s rate. By law, Pitts can’t undercut the City, though he could match their new $2,150 offer. Koch: “I was trying to understand where his rate came from. I was saying, ‘our rate is $7 a day, you can’t be below that,’ and he said, ‘ well I looked at the rates and there’s a $700 a year,’ so I go and look at the rates, and sure enough…” Koch said Pitt’s original lease terms didn’t include parking, but the contract was amended to give Pitts further flexibility in 2013. Koch explained that the City’s new offer actually came out of his meeting with Pitts…last_img read more

Wesley, Wiltjer lead No. 7 Gonzaga into WCC finals

first_imgGonzaga Bulldogs guard Byron Wesley (22) dribbles the basketball against Pepperdine Waves guard/forward Lamond Murray Jr. (30) during the first half in the semifinals of the West Coast Conference tournament at Orleans Arena. —Kyle Terada, USA TODAY SportsLAS VEGAS (AP) — Byron Wesley scored 25 points and led a second-half run with teammate Kyle Wiltjer as top-seeded and seventh-ranked Gonzaga defeated Pepperdine 79-61 Monday night to reach its 18th consecutive West Coast Conference tournament championship game.Wiltjer had 17 points and Przemek Karnowski added 13 for the seventh-ranked Bulldogs (31-2), who will face the winner of the BYU-Portland game for the title.Leading by two points at halftime, Gonzaga used a 30-12 run over the first 9 1/2 minutes of the second half to take a 65-45 lead. Wesley scored 13 points and Wiltjer 12 during the run.Stacy Davis scored 15 points for the Waves (18-13) but shot just 5 for 15. Jeremy Major added 12 points. After Pepperdine tied the game in the first minute of the second half, the Bulldogs scored 10 consecutive points to take control. Wiltjer and Gary Bell Jr. each hit 3-pointers, and Wesley scored on a dunk after stealing the ball from Davis.In contrast to its quarterfinal win over San Francisco, Gonzaga shot exceptionally well in the opening half, making 9 of its first 15 shots and breaking out to a 17-10 lead.But the Zags led by just two at halftime, 35-33, partially because their offense slumped over the final minutes and because Pepperdine kept pressure defensively to stay in the game.Gonzaga was successful getting the ball inside to the 7-foot-1 Karnowski, who had little difficulty scoring over Pepperdine’s 6-10 Nate Gehrig and 6-7 Jett Raines. Karnowski made 4 of his first 5 shots and had nine points at the break.ALL THE CONFERENCE TOURNAMENT ACTIONlast_img read more

I don’t know the genesis of that policy, but growing up I always thought it was weird that the home team was wearing, in my mind anyway, the color of surrender, while the away team got to wear their colors. Strangely, I’m okay with home whites in MLB though. I guess it’s due to the fact that in my mind, the cap and socks add enough [concentrated] color to the look versus the relative sparsity of most NBA uniforms.As for the logoless helmets in football, I remember thinking they were boring when I was much younger, but I grew to appreciate the uniqueness of the helmets that remained logo-less. Of course, if too many teams went logoless, I’d probably wouldn’t like it as much. 2 Posted November 9, 2011 Posted November 9, 2011 Share on other sites vmd9 IceCap 26,195 4 I’m a traidtionalist when it comes to uniforms.

I think of “classic” teams Notre Dame I will let slide since they did technically wear the shamrock before and it’s not a full time look. Now saying that I’m all for plain helmets, just has to fit the team. Hypothetically if a team with a history of having a logo on the helmet, all of a sudden takes it off it would be strange. Some teams do deserve to keep the look, but others would look just strange if they decided to for no reason… a3uge 0 Ohio State has a logoless helmet too–but you ain’t say nothin’ bout them.

Always hated it.–Any helmets with logos and letters…no matter how long they’ve been around: TCU, LSU, etc.–Indiana’s striped warm-up pants.–The horns on the vikings helmets.–The “Greenbay” “G” on the Pack’s helmets. 53 Share this post Link to post 0 Favourite Logos:Florida State’s monograms and arrowhead | Late 90s/early 2000s Washington Capitals’ eagle | Coastal Carolina’s Chanticleer | Oklahoma State Cowboys | Tennessee Titans’ Fireball of Prometheus 386 a3uge 5 Tradition schmradition Share on other sites cmm Kill em all, let God sort em out. 966 posts Members Sign in to follow this   Link to post cmm Share this post WSU151 All Activity Prev 22,645 3 Link to post Location:Somewhere on I-90 most likely Sign in to follow this   Jungle Jim piratesfan16 0 Link to post Members Tradition schmradition Sports Logos Location:Tampa, FL Sports Logos bigwalk Share on other sites 1 0 Posted November 9, 2011 The Yankees (and other teams) not having names on the back of jerseys.
