(Photo by Harry How/Getty Images)The defending champions are back in action as Clemson hosts Georgia Tech tonight. As most fans would expect, almost all predictions involving this game lean toward the home team.Clemson lost several playmakers to the NFL Draft, such as Clelin Ferrell, Christian Wilkins and Hunter Renfrow. Yet, Dabo Swinney still has more than enough firepower to make a run toward another national championship.Sophomore quarterback Trevor Lawrence is expected to shine this season. He’ll get an early crack at making his case for the Heisman Trophy tonight when he faces Georgia Tech.ESPN released its prediction for the Clemson-Georgia Tech game, and it’s about as lopsided as it can be for a conference showdown. According to ESPN’s Football Power Index, Clemson has a 98.8 percent chance of defeating Georgia Tech.It’s not too surprising when you consider that ESPN’s FPI has the Tigers favored in every game on their schedule.ESPN's Football Power Index predicts the winner of the Clemson-Georgia Tech game.Amari Rodgers and Bryton Constantin are the only players on the roster who will miss the season opener. The rest of the team should be locked and loaded for this game.If the Tigers are going to get back to the College Football Playoff, they’ll most likely need another undefeated regular season. An early victory against the Yellow Jackets would be a good start.Kickoff for this game is at 8 p.m. ET from Memorial Stadium.Clemson fans – what is your prediction for this game?last_img read more

first_img My location 此页面无法正确加载 Google 地图。您是否拥有此网站?确定 ADPC, December 16, 2013 zoom Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC) and Abu Dhabi Terminals (ADT) have recently celebrated a record number of containers handled through Khalifa Port in its first year of operation.A million TEUs or containers have now been handled by container terminal operator ADT at Khalifa Port, since its commercial opening at the end of 2012.In October of this year, more than 100,000 TEUs passed through the port in just one month. These are very significant figures for Khalifa Port and the highest number of containers ever handled in a single month in the Emirate.Mohamed Al Shamisi, Acting CEO ADPC said: “One million containers is an important record for Abu Dhabi, not just Khalifa Port. It’s a great achievement for everyone working at the port, demonstrating that the container terminal operations are efficiently and effectively handling the growing import and export volumes that the port was designed for.”Martijn Van de Linde, CEO, ADT, commented: “We are very proud of what we have accomplished over the past year. Surpassing the one million TEU mark is very a significant milestone in the development of Khalifa Port and a clear testament to the efforts and hard work of our teams but even more so, the strong and loyal support we have witnessed from our ever growing customer base.”Khalifa Port began commercial operations at the end of last year when all container traffic was transferred from the city centre port Zayed Port, to the new state of the art flagship Khalifa Port.Zayed Port had been serving the emirate for more than 40 years, but had reached full capacity with no space to expand. When Zayed Port opened the shipping container- which has revolutionized global trade – was a very recent invention.Introduced in the 1960s, the container is a brilliantly simple idea. Loaded in a factory, the steel box can be put on a lorry to travel by road, loaded onto a railway train, or onto ship to travel by sea.The term TEU stands for Twenty-foot Equivalent Unit and refers to the length (20 feet = 6.1 meters) of one standard intermodal steel container.In recent years, the ships carrying containers have got bigger and bigger, the largest ships sailing today can carry 18,000 TEU in total, these containers are stacked 23 across and the ships need much deeper water because of their size.Zayed Port cranes are not wide enough and the water is not deep enough, but Khalifa Port is the emirate’s purpose built port of the future and can meet all of these requirements with ease.Khalifa Port also has excellent hinterland connectivity with direct access to one of the world’s most modern road networks, good connections to multiple international airports and in the near future, as the very first port in the region, direct rail connection to the GCC rail network.A million TEUs is the equivalent of more than six million camels or 18,500 medium-sized dhows. That is a lot of goods being exported and imported into the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and as the population continues to grow and the Emirate diversifies its economy, those volumes are predicted to increase.Currently, Khalifa Port has the capacity to handle 2.5 million TEU with its six super panamax ship to shore cranes, its 30 automated stacking cranes and 20 straddle carriers. This capacity will be developed as the trade increases and the market demands.By 2030, as part of the drive to diversify the Emirate’s economy away from hydro carbon revenue, Khalifa Port will be able to handle 15 million TEUs a year and together with the adjacent Kizad industrial zone, is expected to contribute 15% of non-oil GDP.

first_imgAhead of The Year of the Dog on Friday, Calgarians joined the festivities leading up to Chinese New Year.For the 26th year, Calgary’s Chinese Cultural Centre is hosted the Chinese New Year Festival on Sunday, which included performances, food and more.Tony Wong, vice-president of the centre, said events like these are not only a large part of the Chinese culture, but they also help to reduce stereotyping against Chinese people.“Slowly the attitude of the society changes and discrimination [fades] into the background,” he said.Shuyan Yu performs magic for a small crowd.— 660 NEWS Calgary (@660NEWS) February 11, 2018More than 20 years ago, Iris Cheung immigrated to Canada from Hong Kong. She said she brought her Canadian-born children to the event because it’s good for them to celebrate traditions.“At least they know their roots, yet they still get used to the western culture, but they’re still part of their heritage,” she said.When he was a teenager, Austin Liew immigrated to Canada from Malaysia. He said even though the celebration of Chinese New Year isn’t nearly as big in Canada as it is in Malaysia, he and his wife bring their children to the festival every year.Liew family enjoys the Chinese New Year Festival.— 660 NEWS Calgary (@660NEWS) February 11, 2018Ophelia Liew said she wants her children to experience their cultural roots.“Growing up in Canada with a different kind of ethnicity, it’s really important to just, kind of, like share Canadian identity, but also your own ethnic identity,” she said.Liew said growing up as a first-generation Canadian she was pushed to be a good citizen, meaning her own culture took a back-seat, but she plans to pass along a different message to her children.“I think there’s room for both your own identity and a Canadian identity and you don’t have to choose between one, or the other,” she said.last_img read more

first_imgCANADA (660 NEWS) — As the percentage of people paying for food with cash declines, businesses like Walmart are considering going cash-free. There are many benefits for grocery stores to go cashless including shorter checkout times, heightened convenience and a reduction in theft and human error.“No one wants to really wait to pay for their food items and that’s why the cashless food economy is becoming an attractive proposition for both the consumer and the industry as well,” explained Sylvain Charlebois, professor of food distribution and policy at Dalhousie University. He says cashless stores have prompted some backlash with San Francisco lawmakers even considering a ban.A recent survey by Payments Canada, 42 per cent of consumers use cash fewer than four times a month when purchasing food. A year ago, it was only 20 per cent.“Almost a million Canadians don’t have a bank account, or a credit card, or a debit card, and so that’s problematic,” he pointed out. “So, if you are to go cashless, 100 per cent you are excluding a segment of the population that has less means.”While it definitely offers benefits for consumers and businesses alike, opponents argue it discriminates against low-income shoppers who may not have a bank account.“You can basically go in and out of a grocery store without seeing anyone, without talking to anyone, and the money will be withdrawn from your bank account or will be applied to your credit card in an instant,” he said.He also pointed out that digitizing food transactions allows food service companies to increase food prices, partly because it will go unnoticed by consumers who don’t visualize money physically leaving their wallets.Amazon has said its go stores will accept cash eventually, and it also intends to launch a program that will allow anyone to go cashless regardless of their socio-economic status.last_img read more

Then-junior quarterback Braxton Miller (5) looks for an open receiver during the 2014 Discover Orange Bowl against Clemson Jan. 3 at Sun Life Stadium. OSU lost, 40-35. Lantern file photoOhio State senior quarterback Braxton Miller will miss the entire 2014 football season, an OSU spokesman confirmed Tuesday evening.Miller re-injured his throwing shoulder attempting to complete a short pass in practice Monday afternoon, according to the release.The OSU star was in the process of returning from off-season shoulder surgery in February.The two-time Silver Football award winner said in a press release that he would like to return to the Buckeyes in 2015.“I love Ohio State and Buckeye nation, and my goal is to come back from this injury stronger and better than ever,” Miller said in the release. “I am on course to graduate in December, and I want to attend graduate school and then return to lead the Buckeyes next season. In the meantime, I want to give all the support I can to my coaches and teammates as they chase a championship this season.”Miller’s 8,346 total yards and 84 total touchdowns are each good for second in school history.Coach Urban Meyer offered his sympathies to his senior leader in the release.“My thoughts and prayers are with Braxton and his family,” Meyer said. “This is an unfortunate injury to a young man who means so much to this program and to Buckeye nation.”On Saturday, Meyer said redshirt-freshman J.T. Barrett had moved ahead of redshirt-sophomore Cardale Jones in the team’s backup quarterback battle.Barrett’s only experience for the Buckeyes outside of practice came in OSU’s 2014 Spring Game, when he finished 17 of 33 on pass attempts and totaled 151 yards through the air.Jones has the only game experience of any other quarterback on the roster as he took 39 snaps in games against Florida A&M, Penn State and Purdue last season.OSU is scheduled to take on Navy on Aug. 30 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. Kickoff is set for noon. read more

first_imgDoosan Infracore Construction Equipment has launched the new DA40 articulated dump truck (ADT), the first in a new family of Doosan ADTs offering increased engine power and torque, higher payloads, lower fuel consumption, enhanced operator comfort and faster travel speeds. Incorporating over 40 years of expertise in the ADT market and using quality components from world-class suppliers such as Scania, ZF, NAF, Parker and Rexroth, the new Doosan ADTs are optimised for extreme off-road performance, the company says.The exceptionally flexible and agile undercarriage, which is designed to ensure that all six wheels are in permanent contact with the ground, means that Doosan trucks can operate on very rough and soft terrain on construction sites such as road projects and mass excavation hauling as well as in mining and quarrying applications.The new ADTs complement Doosan’s range of excavators and wheel loaders, allowing Doosan to offer a one-stop solution for equipment to excavate, load and transport all types of materials. All Doosan ADT and heavy equipment products are supported by flexible financing packages from Doosan Financial solutions, offering ‘tailor-made’ solutions for purchasing Doosan products.    Like all Doosan heavy equipment, the new range of ADTs is supported by a regional sales and service operation with strategically located parts depots to service a worldwide network of Doosan dealers.  All the depots have fully trained Doosan service and parts specialists to support our dealers and to ensure the customer experiences maximum uptime from their machine.Powered by the six-cylinder Scania DC13 Stage IIIB compliant diesel engine with a gross power output of 368 kW  at 2100 rpm, the new DA40 offers a 10% increase in engine power compared to the previous MT41 model.  With a 22% increase in gross torque to 2,373 Nm at 1300 rpm, the torque available in the DA40 is ‘best in class’ in the ADT market, Doosan says. The increased engine power is combined with SCR technology to lower fuel consumption. Also contributing to the overall 8% reduction in fuel consumption* is the new ZF transmission offering eight forward and four reverse speeds. The new transmission improves the transfer of power from the engine to the wheels for outstanding traction. To withstand the increased power, the driveline dimensions and cooling capacity of the truck have been increased.Doosan also claims the DA40 “combines ‘best-in-class’ fuel consumption with a higher top speed of 58 km/h.” It also has an increased body capacity of 24.4 m³, and the payload has been boosted to 40 t without tailgate, an increase of more than 15% over the payload of the MT41.The DA40 has permanent six-wheel drive for equal power distribution while the free-swinging rear tandem bogie and the special articulation system offer excellent driving performance in difficult terrain. The sloping body design enhances the stability of the truck thanks to its low centre of gravity and allows fast and easy tipping, even in the most demanding conditions. The combination of the unique tandem bogie and the sloping rear frame results in ‘best in class’ rough and soft terrain capabilities and avoids the need for electronic aids such as traction control.To handle the increased payload as well as provide a smoother ride for the operator, the DA40 has a completely new hydro-gas front suspension. This independent front suspension (there is no rigid axle) is a unique feature of the Doosan ADT which allows for free movement on one side, without movement on the opposite side, providing maximum ground contact and shock absorption.The articulation hinge is positioned behind the turning ring to provide equal weight distribution even during maximum turning and ensure maximum contact between the front wheels and the ground for optimum traction.“Thanks to the high engine power and torque,” Doosan says, “the improved ground clearance and the efficient  powertrain, the DA40 delivers ‘best-in-class’ rim pull in extreme hauling conditions.  Like all Doosan ADTs, the DA40 features a powerful engine brake and hydraulic transmission retarder as standard. The wet brakes offer a long service life and sealed protection from the environment and, with oil-cooled multiple disc brakes on all the wheels, the safety of the operator is never compromised.“The DA40 has a completely new cab providing more space and improved visibility for the operator, ‘best in class’ noise levels and a fully automatic climate control system.  For easier operation, Doosan has introduced new electronic systems and simplified fingertip controls with a digital display of all desired machine functions.”The fully automatic eight-gear transmission and smooth Tiptronic gear-shifting (both automatic and manual gear functions are available) allow the operator to concentrate on working conditions. For routine maintenance and service, the cab can be tilted backwards to provide easy access to components.  Easier service access and longer service intervals result in lower operating costs. A fully automatic central greasing system and rear view camera are standard.last_img read more

first_imgNEARLY TWO THIRDS of the country’s credit unions have some form of lending restriction imposed on them.The figure was revealed by Finance Minister Michael Noonan before the Dáil broke and in the week that Berehaven Credit Union in Cork was liquidated amid what the Central Bank called “poor governance and lending practices”.The resolution document for Berehaven says that it breached these lending restrictions twice.However, those breaches are related to two loans for €3,500 and €3,800 above the member’s shares, when the maximum allowable was €3,000 above shares.In Noonan’s parliamentary response, he says that 59% of institutions had some form of restriction on them, but the amounts varied.“Currently about 59% of all credit unions are subject to lending restrictions. Almost all credit unions with a lending restriction in place have a maximum individual loan size restriction. Of the credit unions with lending restrictions, approximately 70% currently can lend €20,000 or more to an individual member, which is a sizeable monetary amount and should cover most individual circumstances.“The Central Bank advises that it sees restrictions, in most cases, as short term in nature, to be lifted when risks have been addressed satisfactorily and necessary corrective measures embedded. The Registrar of Credit Unions informs me that lending restrictions are reviewed on a regular basis. I have introduced legislative changes so that lending restrictions are now subject to an independent appeals process.”Noonan added that he felt the credit union plays an “important role”, but said that lending had to be “constructively considered”.Blunt instrumentThe lending restrictions are designed to stop credit unions lending beyond their means, but are seen as too blunt an instrument.In many cases, they supress the demand for borrowing, shutting off a valuable revenue stream for credit unions. They are also seen as too rigid, not taking into consideration the ability of individual members to repay their loans.Some within the movement have suggested that the restriction, while not the sole cause, played a part in the liquidation of Berehaven.Read: Berehaven Credit Union to be liquidated after ‘poor governance and lending practices’>Read: The Central Bank sent €10 million to Berehaven Credit Union depositors last night>last_img read more

first_imgThe already beleaguered Vancouver-Clark Parks & Recreation Department is facing its biggest budget shortfall since the recession began, with a 10 percent budget cut, program reductions and layoffs on the horizon.A 20 percent drop in recreation center revenue, combined with a repurposing of Clark County funds away from the parks department, have combined to create a $1 million to $1.3 million shortfall in the department’s $10.5 million budget, city officials said Friday.All city employees were notified by email, and all of the department’s 65 employees (a number that goes up to more than 300 seasonal workers in the summer) have been warned of impending job losses. Just who and how many people will be lost isn’t yet clear, but will be in the next one to three months, Parks Director Pete Mayer said.“In terms of what we’ve experienced … this is more significant than other (budget shortfalls),” he said.Vancouver isn’t making the money it was from its recreation centers, Mayer said. The city has already instituted a 5 to 6 percent increase in monthly recreation center prices this year (it costs about $40 a month for a rec center pass), closed the Firstenburg Community Center an hour earlier, and also closed the Marshall Community Center on Sundays.Officials thought that losses may be due to typical ebbs and flows of revenue, but as the peak time of summer wound down, City Manager Eric Holmes said it became clear that the losses were ongoing. Cost recovery at the city’s recreation centers was above 80 percent in 2010; now it’s below 70 percent.last_img read more
