Ichthys Venturer, the INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG Project’s floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) facility, arrived in Australian waters on August 14. The 336-meter-long, 59-meter-wide, ship-shaped, weather-vaning facility will be permanently moored in the Browse Basin, about 220 kilometers off the Western Australian coast, INPEX said.On July 18, the facility started its voyage from waters near the construction site in Okpo, South Korea.“The safe completion of the 5,600-kilometre, 26-day tow of the Ichthys Venturer from South Korea to Australian waters is another significant stride forward for the Ichthys LNG Project,” Louis Bon, Managing Director Ichthys Project, commented.“The FPSO has been designed to hold 1.12 million barrels of condensate and operate for 40 years in a cyclonic environment, setting new benchmarks for durability,” Bon further said.Ichthys Venturer, which is able to accommodate up to 200 people, joins the Ichthys LNG Project’s Central Processing Facility (CPF) – Ichthys Explorer – described as the world’s largest semi-submersible platform that was safely moored in the Ichthys Field recently.Once Ichthys Venturer is moored in the 250-meter deep waters of the Ichthys Field, hook-up and commissioning activities will commence, according to INPEX.The FPSO will process, stabilize and store the condensate delivered from Ichthys Explorer before periodically offloading it to tankers for export to market.The Ichthys LNG Project is a project led by INPEX alongside major partner TOTAL, and the Australian subsidiaries of CPC Corporation Taiwan, Tokyo Gas, Osaka Gas, Kansai Electric, JERA and Toho Gas. The project is expected to produce up to 8.9 million tons of LNG and 1.65 million tons of LPG per annum, along with approximately 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak.
The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), forced to suspend its operations in Côte d’Ivoire because of last week’s disturbances, said today that continued uncertainty about staff safety could have a “disastrous effect” on its efforts to aid some of the most vulnerable people, including refugees, in the West African country.Replacing food supplies stolen from WFP in the town of Guiglo would cost at least $530,000, while losses from theft and damage at its office there have been estimated at $100,000.Virtually no humanitarian presence remains in Guiglo after violent protests forced most organizations to relocate their staff, but about 7,000 mainly Burkinabé refugees are housed in one camp there and 6,000 Liberian refugees in another.“For the time being there is no possibility for our staff to return to Guiglo. It is simply too dangerous,” WFP Country Côte d’Ivoire Director Abdou Dieng said. “While we are relieved that our staff have not been physically harmed, we remain extremely concerned for those we have left behind who depend on WFP for their day-to-day survival. Who is going to provide for their needs now?”Responding to radio broadcasts, looters stripped WFP’s two warehouses in Guiglo of 683 metric tons of food and ransacked the main office, taking whatever they were able to carry, including computers, furniture and electrical equipment.WFP feeds a total of nearly 700,000 people in Côte d’Ivoire, as well as over 200,000 people displaced by the unrest in recent years in neighbouring countries. Should the situation deteriorate into a full-blown crisis, the agency said it would implement a contingency plan to meet the food needs of another 350,000 people.Overall, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs estimated about $1.8 million in losses in Côte d’Ivoire.
The “short or long but never midrange” theory of NBA shooting has been popular in analytics since at least the early 2000s. Statistically, 3-point shots have long been more efficient than long 2-point shots: The reward — an extra point — has outweighed a slightly lower completion percentage. So, the theory goes, teams should eschew midrange shots as much as possible and either take the ball to the basket or shoot from beyond the arc.Whether or not NBA players and coaches have had this theory in mind, 3-point attempts have steadily risen since their introduction in the 1979-80 season. In “Daryl Morey’s D-League Plan to Do Away With Midrange Shots,” Grantland’s Kirk Goldsberry looked at the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, the Houston Rockets D-League team that has taken the inside/outside strategy to the extreme — a staggering 47 percent of players’ shots come from the 3-point range. (If the NBA keeps increasing its long-distance shooting at the pace it has in the past 25 years, it should match the Vipers in approximately 2054.)Although the Vipers have had good results so far, Goldsberry warned against reading too much into the experiment and assuming the same strategy would work in the NBA:One troubling issue with the Vipers’ strategy is that they are significantly reducing the size of the scoring area. Let’s go back to the 1,300-square-foot apartment metaphor — the Vipers hang out only in the kitchen and bedroom. They never use the living room. By forgoing midrange shots altogether, they are telling opponents that they don’t plan on using a giant swath of tactical space relatively close to the basket. As NBA defenses evolve, the smartest ones are already finding ways to counter the smart-guy shot-selection strategy. The Pacers, who have the league’s best defense, have a reputation for vigorously defending the restricted area and the 3-point area, while being less protective of the midrange. They are the Vipers’ antivenom. And if defenses are able to take away those “efficient” areas, you better have alternative ways to generate offense.Goldsberry was describing an important limitation in the 3s-and-layups strategy: 3-point shots will only be more efficient than midrange shots so long as defenses fail to devote enough resources to defending them. Unless the best-defended 3-point shot is more efficient than a wide-open midrange shot (it’s not), saying 3-point shots are better than midrange shots is wrong. What we really mean is 3-pointers are suboptimally defended. As unwitting game-theory expert Stan Van Gundy would say, “Sometimes you’re going to get the shots the defense allows.”But there’s an even bigger issue with the back-of-the-envelope efficiency calculation at the heart of the pro-3 argument: The fact that 3-pointers are more efficient than midrange shots overall doesn’t mean the marginal 3-pointer is necessarily more valuable than the marginal 2-pointer.If you want to replace a midrange attempt with a 3-pointer, you will normally be replacing a bad 2-pointer with a bad 3-pointer. There’s no intrinsic reason those marginal shots should have the same relative efficiency as better shots of the same type. In fact, there are plausible reasons to think they wouldn’t. Average 3-point shot efficiency may be skewed by the extremely high efficiency of wide-open looks, which players probably weren’t passing up in the first place.This doesn’t mean that NBA teams shouldn’t be taking more 3s. I’d guess we probably haven’t reached that point yet.
Members of the Ohio State men’s ice hockey team came into their series against Notre Dame wanting to start the postseason fresh after ending the regular season on a sour note. The end result of two games against the Fighting Irish, however, was more of the same of what had transpired over the past two months. Notre Dame (19-16-3) swept OSU (15-15-5) in a best-of-three series in the first round of the CCHA tournament. The No. 9 seed Buckeyes fell to the No. 8 seed Fighting Irish, 4-2, Saturday night, following a 2-0 loss Friday. OSU’s season is over. The Buckeyes, who rose to a No. 2 national ranking in early January, will miss out on the NCAA Tournament, finishing the year on a 1-11-4 skid. OSU senior goalie Cal Heeter made 52 saves during the two games. Buckeye seniors, defenseman Sean Duddy and forward Danny Dries, each scored in Saturday’s loss. The Buckeyes took a rare early lead on Saturday, scoring twice in the game’s opening period. OSU had last led after 20 minutes on Feb. 11 in a 4-3 win at Western Michigan. Duddy notched his second-career goal at 4:35 in the first stanza. OSU junior forward Alex Carlson won a faceoff and sent the puck to Duddy at the point, whose wrist shot found the back of the net. Notre Dame answered at 9:20, but Dries got the lead back for the Buckeyes with a power-play goal at 17:19. Notre Dame rallied with three unanswered goals on way to their 4-2 victory. OSU had chances to tie the game in the third period, but failed to convert on two power plays. Friday night, the Fighting Irish took a 1-0 lead in the first period on a goal at 9:08. The Buckeyes had opportunities to score, but went 0-2 on the power play and Notre Dame led, 1-0, after twenty minutes. In the second stanza, Notre Dame converted on the power play at 2:50 extending their lead to 2-0. OSU trailed, 2-0, for the remainder of the game. The Buckeyes failed to execute on three more power plays in the defeat. The series capped the careers of four Buckeye seniors — Dries, Duddy, Heeter and forward Cory Schneider. Heeter finishes third OSU history in career goals-against average (2.58) and career save percentage (.915). His .918 save percentage this season is the fifth-best in the history of OSU. OSU sophomore forward Chris Crane and freshman forward Ryan Dzingel end the year tied for the team lead with 24 points.
We all know that the internet has become saturated with social networking. If you can read it on the web, chances are you can also “Like” it. It’s only natural that, if you share something, Facebook or Google will know that you visited that page. It’s also likely that they’ll use that data to sell advertising. What most of us don’t know, however, is that those same networks can track your visits to many pages even if you don’t click on any sharing buttons. Enter Priv3, a new extension for Firefox that only allows your visits to be tracked when you want them to.When a social sharing button is integrated into a web page, some code from the corresponding social network is included by that page’s designer. Therefore, if you read a news item about Lady Gaga that has a Like button on it – and you are logged into Facebook – Mark Zuckerberg and friends can track your visit to that page, without any action on your part.With Like, Tweet, and +1 buttons everywhere, you can start to see the potential for some serious privacy concerns here. Nearly everything you do on the web can be (and likely is) stored on Facebook’s, Google’s and Twitter’s servers. As it helps them sell advertising, why wouldn’t they?If you’re a Firefox user, the Priv3 extension will block this kind of tracking. So you can read up on the Lady Gaga story and, unless you choose to “Like” it, Facebook will know nothing of your visit. Unless you opt to tweet it, Twitter won’t have a clue. Priv3 will detect clicks to the sharing buttons and activate them when they are needed, so you don’t lose any capabilities here.In addition to Facebook, Google, and Twitter, the extension also blocks tracking from LinkedIn. The developers say they will add more networks later, if necessary – but it looks like they have the most important bases covered.Firefox users can check out the source link below to give Priv3 a shot, and take a little bit of your life back from those interested third parties.More at Priv3
Rare Harvest Moon Will Light Up Night Sky on Friday the 13thIndia Finds Lost Vikram Lander on Moon’s Surface Stay on target Moon watchers, look up.A total lunar eclipse, the first full moon and first lunar eclipse of 2019, will be visible on the night of Jan. 20 and into the early morning hours of Jan. 21, when Earth’s shadow moves over the lunar surface to give it a rusty orange or reddish tinge and turn it into what some call a “blood moon.”It can be viewed from North and South America. But skywatchers can also partially view it from Europe and Africa.The lunar eclipse coincides with the year’s first full moon — called a “wolf moon.” According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, “in Native American and early Colonial times, the full moon for January was called the Full Wolf Moon. It appeared when wolves howled in hunger outside the villages.”Since it’s a supermoon, when the moon appears slightly bigger and brighter because it’s at the closest point to Earth in its elliptical orbit, media outlets have called the upcoming eclipse a “Super Blood Wolf Moon” eclipse.No special equipment or glasses are needed to view the lunar eclipse, but skywatchers may want to bundle up. “It’s going to be very cold with temperatures in the single digits and teens F in parts of the Midwest and Plains,” AccuWeather Meteorologist Mike Doll said.(MORE: How to Photograph a Total Lunar Eclipse | Supermoons Are Super Dumb)Viewers will see a normal full moon at first starting at around 10:35 p.m. Eastern time, and at that time, the Earth’s shadow will begin to pass in front of the moon, blocking almost all of the sun’s light from reaching it, Walter Freeman, an assistant teaching professor in the Physics Department at Syracuse University’s College of Arts and Sciences, said in a statement.“Observers will see the moon appear to be progressively ‘swallowed up’ starting from the lower left. This process will end at 11:40 p.m., when the Earth’s shadow covers the whole of the moon’s surface; this is the beginning of ‘totality.’ This will last until around 12:40 a.m., when the motion of the Earth’s shadow will carry it past the moon, and the moon will gradually again be lit by the sun. At 1:45 a.m., the moon will be fully visible again,” said Freeman.Check time.unitarium.com for exact times of the eclipse’s phases.This will be the last chance for a whole to see a total lunar eclipse.

Asaduzzaman Khan KamalHome minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Saturday said that BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia was suffering from some chronic diseases, reports UNB.The minister, however, said that the former prime minister is now physically fit.Kamal made the comment while talking to reporters after inaugurating a new building of police station at Debhata upazila of Satkhira.The minister also said that Khaleda Zia is getting all the facilities as per the jail code and she is under regular check-up. BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia is now in jail after being convicted in a graft case. Last week she was not produced before a court as she has fallen ill in jail.Bangladesh Nationalist Party senior leaders alleged that they are in the dark about the actual state of her health.
The program was part of a Yale University study that treated children’s anxiety by teaching their parents new ways of responding to it. The first time Jessica Calise can remember her 9-year-old son Joseph’s anxiety spiking was about a year ago, when he had to perform at a school concert. He said his stomach hurt and he might throw up. “We spent the whole performance in the bathroom,” she recalls. Jessica decided to enroll in an experimental program, one that was very different from other therapy for childhood anxiety that she knew about. It wasn’t Joseph who would be seeing a therapist every week — it would be her. “The parent’s own responses are a core and integral part of childhood anxiety,” says Eli Lebowitz, a psychologist at the Yale School of Medicine who developed the training. — After that, Joseph struggled whenever he had to do something alone, like showering or sleeping in his bedroom. He would beg his parents to sit outside the bathroom door or let him sleep in their bed. “It’s heartbreaking to see your child so upset and feel like he’s going to throw up because he’s nervous about something that, in my mind, is no big deal,” Jessica says. The parent training seems to work because it lets children confront their anxieties while parents provide love and support from afar, says Anne Marie Albano, a psychologist at Columbia University who did not work on the study.

The term “cloud computing” has been around for almost 10 years, but it only entered the healthcare vocabulary a few years ago. Today, many healthcare providers are confused about what cloud computing is and especially about how it is being used within healthcare and its potential applications for the future.This is one of the findings that KLAS identified in a study released last November, “Path to Cloud Computing Foggy: Perception Study 2011.” KLAS spoke with 97 providers and found that most define cloud computing as something remotely hosted, where the data is accessible over the Internet. While those attributes are correct, the study noted that few providers understood all the other elements involved, namely, that a cloud should be virtualized, elastic, scalable, metered and residing on pooled or shared resources, to be considered a true cloud.KLAS identified three basic cloud service models: Software as a service (SaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS).“SaaS allows the user to deploy the software quickly, but restricts the customization of the application,” the report said. “IaaS refers to the provisioning or outsourcing of hardware, servers, storage and networking components, typically via the Web, and allows the user to swiftly allocate computing resources. Finally, PaaS refers to both the infrastructure and sevices to run software or to develop and test software.”There are three delivery models: Private cloud environment, public cloud environment and a hybrid cloud environment. According to the KLAS research, healthcare providers lean toward a preference for the private cloud.Cloud for the EMR and PACSMore than half of the respondents are deploying something in the cloud currently; for many, it is their electronic medical records (EMR), and it usually is in a private cloud. Respondents who said they are considering a cloud would follow a similar path, mentioning first deploying their EMR in a private cloud, followed by their picture archiving and communication system (PACS).Not surprisingly, it is the challenge providers are having with image storage that oftentimes provides a push toward the cloud. Facilities are having to store a massive volume of images from all different departments, and it’s a problem.“…the ability to put one’s PACS images in a cloud is attractive to providers who struggle to keep up with image storage demands,” the report said.Respondents who talked about putting their PACS in the cloud said their image storage capacity is filling up much more quickly than they had anticipated, said study author Erik Westerlind, a senior research director with KLAS. “One respondent said they had a three-year plan to upgrade their storage capacity, but found they were already full just 1-1/2 years into it,” Westerlind said. “This is typical. Cloud also is seen as a great solution for offloading older images.”When it comes to using the cloud for imaging, respondents also mentioned other benefits, such as off-site storage, backup and disaster recovery. “It is perceived as good in terms of business continuity as well,” Westerlind noted. “If something happens and they need to get an image, they know that it’s stored somewhere else.” Providers also like the fact that the cloud provides almost instant availability of images, which enhances collaboration between facilities and physicians.The providers surveyed see the cloud as offering cost savings that would come from reducing on-site storage and network infrastructure costs, like ongoing maintenance, labor and hardware. But the reality does not always match that perception, Westerlind noted. Some respondents found the cloud is not necessarily cheaper, especially since healthcare providers usually want a private cloud option for security and privacy. But for the price, it can provide access to better equipment and 24/7 technical resources, which is seen as a plus.Some Uncertainty for the FutureA little more than half of the respondents to the KLAS survey showed interest in using cloud technology, but only about a third plan to do it in the next two years or so. The main concerns providers have are data security and privacy. There is skepticism about whether a public cloud could provide HIPAA compliance, and providers also feel they would lose control with a public cloud. Some providers think the only solution that could ever work in healthcare is a private cloud. Providers really want healthcare-specific solutions, and that goes for everything from EMRs to health information exchanges (HIEs) to analytics to PACS and accountable care organizations (ACOs), the report noted.“Providers are more confident in complying with privacy and security regulations with images than with EMR data,” Westerlind said. “But there still is sensitive data attached to that image. There also is a security concern because things are being accessed through the Web.”Another concern about the Web access component is simply the connectivity issues, Westerlind added, “especially among providers in more remote areas. They don’t have much faith in being able to connect without problems.”In general, the report concluded that “the fog in the cloud remains,” i.e., healthcare providers are not yet ready to jump into it wholeheartedly. Questions and concerns remain.KLAS’ mission is to improve the delivery of healthcare technology by independently measuring and reporting on vendor performance.

The smiles say it all – the brand new desks and chairs funded by HOOT Holidays team are a real hit with the Pango Centre School childrenHOOT Holidays Incentive Reward Donation makes Vanuatu children smile againWhen Cyclone Pam tore through Vanuatu in March 2015 it caused massive destruction. It was regarded as one of the most intense tropical cyclones of 2015 and was the worst natural disaster in the history of Vanuatu.Whilst the initial focus was on providing food and household supplies, clean water and materials to assist with the rebuild of homes, but due to the scale of the disaster recovery is ongoing and long term. One year on and Vanuatu still remains in the minds and hearts of the HOOT Holidays team, so much so that the team unanimously decided to donate their collective $3,000 incentive reward, received in recognition of achieving their sales target, to help a local Vanuatu school.Chief Executive HOOT Holidays Joe Araullo was not at all surprised by this extremely thoughtful gesture.“One of the team suggested we use the incentive reward to assist the ongoing relief efforts in Vanuatu and it was an instant and completely resounding yes by everyone. It was so heart-warming to see such a fantastic response and I simply love how the team gets in behind supporting our island friends when they are in need, not only at the time of the tragic event but they are still finding ways to assist a year later. I couldn’t be more proud and it really is just another great example of how HOOT Holidays genuinely cares about our extended communities.”With the assistance of Vanuatu Tourism, Pango Center School was chosen following a plea for international assistance from the school principle. The school is located in Pango Village, 10 kilometres from Port Vila with a population of approximately 1,500 and the village, along with its local primary school was severely affected by the cyclone.Ironically a fundraising effort by the school was due to occur the week cyclone Pam hit.“School contributions and funding normally provided by the parents has ceased due to the severity of the devastation in the Pango Village itself, these funds are being required for their own rebuilding efforts. It was the motivation to be able to provide basic and safe conditions for the school children to learn effectively was what made George Able the school principle to reach out to the international community for help,” says Linda Kalpoi, General Manager Vanuatu National Tourism Office.Able requested funding assistance with three things: 1. Completion of toilets – connection of water pipes to the main water supplier as students need to carry water in buckets to flush the toilets after use2. Purchase new tables and chairs for years 1-3 – children are currently sitting doing their work on the ground3. Rebuild a new classroom following cyclone damage – classes are currently overcrowded due to lack of classroom spaceThe sizeable HOOT Holidays donation enabled the school to purchase 20 double desks and 40 chairs.“This is the first time the school has received such large scale help or donation, a huge gala tankiu tumas to the HOOT Holidays Team,” says Kalpoi.“To see the smiles on the children’s faces is all the thanks we need. Knowing that these children no longer have to sit on the floor to do their schoolwork and can once again have the basic materials most of us take for granted is truly humbling. The Vanuatu people, known for being the happiest people in the world are always genuine, friendly and happy and we are only too aware of the struggles that lie behind many of these faces. We are thrilled that we have made a difference,” says Araullo.For more information on how you too can continue to support the Vanuatu recovery please contact Linda Kalpoi, Vanuatu National Tourism Office.About HOOT HolidaysHoliday Specialists has more than 30 years’ experience in the wholesale travel business and is rated one of Australia’s top three producers for Fiji and Vanuatu.Its central reservation unit is divided into specialist destination cells so that each call is answered by a consultant who is part of a team knowledgeable about that specific destination that each customer is calling about.Holiday Specialists prides itself on its reservation consultants depth of knowledge about their destination and related product they represent (be it a hotel, sightseeing option, information of restaurants, shopping, specialist experiences, destinations within destinations or transfers to and from.

Unemployment,First-Time Jobless Claims Up, Still Below Expectations Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Bureau of Labor Statistics Investors Jobs JOLTS Labor Department Lenders & Servicers Mark Lieberman Payrolls Processing Service Providers 2013-08-08 Mark Lieberman First-time claims for unemployment insurance increased 5,000 to 333,000 for the week ending August 3, the “”Labor Department””:http://www.ows.doleta.gov/press/2013/080813.asp reported Thursday. Economists expected the number of claims to drop to climb to 336,000 from the 326,000 originally reported for the week ending July 27. The number of filings for that week was revised to 328,000, the lowest level since early May. [IMAGE]The number of persons continuing to collect unemployment insurance for the week ending July 27, reported on a one-week lag, increased 67,000 to 3,018,000. The number of continuing claims for the week ending July 20 was unchanged at 2,951,000.Thursday’s report on first-time claims was consistent with a trend–reflected in the Bureau of Labor Statistics├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔÇ×┬ó (BLS) Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) reported earlier this week–showing a sharp decline in layoffs and discharges, events which lead to unemployment insurance claims.This week├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔÇ×┬ós report on initial claims, though, will have no impact on the August Employment Situation report scheduled to be released September 6 by BLS. That report will be based on employment data for the week including the 12th calendar day of the month. The report on unemployment claims to be released in two weeks will cover that week.The week-over-week increase in initial claims came despite favorable seasonal adjustment factors that will continue through mid-October. Those factors, which take into account predictable, recurring events that affect unemployment insurance claims, are set at the beginning of the year. The four-week moving average of first-time claims for the week ending August 3 was 335,500, down 6,250 from the previous week.
