zoom Hong Kong-listed Sinotrans Shipping Limited has closed the deal with Dynagas and CMES subsidiary, China LNG Shipping (Holdings) Limited (CLNG) to participate in the construction of five Arctic LNG carriers.Sinotrans said that it has entered into a series of agreements for the formation of five joint ventures with Dynagas and CLNG, each of which is party to a shipbuilding contract and party to a time charter in respect of an Arctic LNG carrier.Upon the JV completion, the company indirectly owns 25.5% in the deal, whereas China LNG Shipping (CLNG) holds 25.5 percent stake and Greek shipowner Dynagas the remaining 49 percent.Sinotrans announced on 21 September 2015 that it was in talks with certain parties on participation in a possible joint venture to commission the building of five Arctic LNG carriers to engage in the LNG Arctic shipping business.Construction of the vessels was commissioned by Yamal that ordered the ships with Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering and DY Shipping Limited in December 2014.In July 2015, Yamal novated the shipbuilding contracts to the JV companies, which were then wholly-owned by Dynagas. In addition, on 12 August 2015, each J entered into one time charter with Yamal, leasing the vessels to Yamal until 31 December 2045.Yamal has the option to extend the term of the time charters for two consecutive periods of up to five years for each period.The 172,410 cum LNG vessels are slated for delivery between 30 November 2017 and 31 March 2019.Yamal LNG is a joint venture between NOVATEK (60 percent), TOTAL (20 percent) and China National Oil & Gas Exploration and Development Corporation (CNODC) (20 percent). The project consists of three LNG trains with a total capacity of approximately 16.5 million metric tons of LNG per annum.World Maritime News Staff

BERLIN — A German labour union is calling on security staff at three German airports to stage a strike Thursday amid ongoing pay negotiations.The ver.di union said Wednesday that it’s urging workers to join a one-day walkout that is likely to cause disruptions for airline passengers.The strike will affect airports in Duesseldorf, Koeln-Bonn and Stuttgart.Security staff at Berlin’s two airports already staged a strike Monday that caused severe disruption to flights.The union wants hourly pay for all workers conducting security checks to rise to 20 ($22.81) euros. The employers association BDLS says this could amount to an increase of 30 per cent in some cases.The Associated Press
JUNEAU, Alaska — The state of Alaska says it’s ending ferry service to and from Prince Rupert, British Columbia, effective Oct. 1, citing an inability to comply with U.S. security requirements.The state transportation department says U.S. Customs and Border Protection is requiring that the ferry system secure a Canadian law enforcement presence to protect Customs and Border Protection personnel while they perform their duties in Prince Rupert.The department says it had been granted a waiver of that requirement through Sept. 30.Meadow Bailey, a department spokeswoman, says the Royal Canadian Mounted Police did not have resources to help. An email seeking comment was sent to a Royal Canadian Mounted Police spokeswoman.Bailey says if requirements change, or Canadian law enforcement becomes available, the state can consider returning service to Prince Rupert.The Associated Press
“Impartiality in humanitarian terms means that we provide life-saving and life-sustaining assistance to civilians based on their humanitarian needs without consideration of where they are, which side in the conflict they may sympathise with, their nationality, social status, gender, age, religious belief or any other consideration,” the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Stephen O’Brien, wrote today in a letter to the editor published in the UK newspaper The Guardian.“This fundamental notion of impartiality guides our work and is non-negotiable, in Syria or anywhere else,” he added.The UN official was responding to a recent series of articles published in The Guardian which asserted that the Syrian government ‘controls UN aid’ and that the UN has channelled funding intended for life-saving humanitarian response to the ‘Assad regime.’According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) – which Mr. O’Brien heads – Syria is one of the most complex and dynamic humanitarian crises in the world today. Since March 2011, more than a quarter of a million Syrians have been killed and more than one million have been injured. Another 4.8 million Syrians have been forced to leave the country, and 6.5 million are internally displaced, making Syria the largest displacement crisis globally. Humanitarian access to people in need in Syria remains constrained by the ongoing conflict in contravention of international law, international humanitarian law and human rights law, according to OCHA. In 2016, an estimated 13.5 million people, including six million children, are in need of humanitarian assistance – of these, 5.47 million people are in hard-to-reach areas, including close to 600,000 people in 18 besieged areas.Inside Syria, as in other countries, UN agencies must work with key government departments to support the delivery of public services and humanitarian relief, according to OCHA. Some governments, including that of Syria, insist that UN agencies work with a list of authorised implementing partners. “However, we choose our partners from that list based on our own assessments of their capacity to deliver and following due diligence processes – not because we are forced to work with any particular organisation in order to stay and deliver in the country,” Mr. O’Brien wrote in his letter. “In areas not controlled by the government, we work with local partners that may not be authorised by the government.”According to OCHA’s current figures: – 11.5 million Syrians require health care – 13.5 million Syrians need protection support – 12.1 million Syrians require water and sanitation – 9.4 million Syrians are food insecure – 1.5 million Syrians need shelter and household goods – 5.7 million Syrian children need education supportThe Emergency Relief Coordinator noted that the United Nations welcomes public scrutiny of its humanitarian operations in Syria, with details of its programmes, partners, contracting and financial details available online to the media and public alike. “However,” he wrote, “your articles mischaracterise the UN-led humanitarian operation in Syria, fail to offer a balanced perspective on the challenges of operating in Syria and discredit the courageous work of national and international humanitarian aid workers who risk their lives on a daily basis to help millions of people in need in one of the world’s most vicious conflicts.”“We cannot deprive people of aid because there is pressure to disengage from a party to the conflict,” he added. “The impartiality of the UN’s humanitarian operations is fundamental to saving lives and our focus is squarely on reaching people in need. To achieve this, we must work with all to reach all.” Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Stephen O’Brien, chats with a family on a visit to the city of Homs, Syria in August 2015.

“The increase in food insecurity has been driven by armed conflict, below-average harvests and soaring food prices as well as the effects of the annual lean season,” said the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the World Food Programme (WFP) in a joint press statement today. According to the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) update, an analysis by the UN agencies, the Government and other partners, the technical definition of famine no longer applies to former Unity State’s Leer and Mayandit counties where famine was declared in February. Immediate and sustained humanitarian assistance most likely played a significant role in preventing the Koch and Panyijiar counties from deteriorating into famine. However, hunger has flared in the nation’s north-east corner – the western bank of the Nile River – while those in the south-west are facing unprecedented levels of need. “The crisis is not over. We are merely keeping people alive but far too many face extreme hunger on the edge of a cliff,” said FAO’s Director of Emergencies Dominique Burgeon. “The only way to stop this desperate situation is to stop the conflict, ensure unimpeded access and enable people to resume their livelihoods.” The crisis is not over. We are merely keeping people alive but far too many face extreme hunger on the edge of a cliff Dominique Burgeon FAO Director of EmergenciesThe three UN agencies warned that the improvements in the worst hunger hotspots must not be lost. People’s ability to feed themselves has been severely eroded and continued life-saving emergency food and livelihoods support must continue to prevent a shift back to famine. “The gains made in the famine-affected counties show what can be achieved when sustained assistance reaches families. But the job is far from done,” said Joyce Luma, WFP’s Representative and Country Director in South Sudan. “This is a crisis that continues to get worse with millions of people facing the prospect of starvation if humanitarian assistance ceases. An end to this conflict is imperative.” “When humanitarian agencies have access and resources we are able to mount a swift and robust response, and save lives,” said Mahimbo Mdoe, UNICEF Representative in South Sudan. “And yet more than one million children in South Sudan are estimated to be malnourished.” Food insecurity is a key issue, but so is lack of health care, poor water and sanitation and, most crucially, access to those children in need of treatment. At present, too many parts of the country remain cut off due to insecurity, leaving hundreds of thousands of children on the cusp of catastrophe. Each of the agencies has stepped up its response:WFP has reached 3.4 million people in South Sudan since the beginning of the year, including assistance for 2.6 million people displaced or affected by conflict and 800,000 people through a recovery operation;UNICEF and partners have treated some 76,000 children with severe acute malnutrition and provided 500,000 people with safe drinking water and 200,000 others with access to sanitation facilities; andFAO has provided fishing, crop- and vegetable-growing kits to more than 2.8 million people, including 200,000 in the famine-affected areas, and vaccinated more than 6 million livestock to save lives through livelihoods.

Jane Goodall is among the most famous researchers in the world today, still nearly a half-century after her groundbreaking work studying chimpanzees in their natural environment in Gombe National Park, Tanzania. Back then, many have noted, the consensus among scientists was that personality traits in animals were invented by amateurs succumbing to anthropomorphism. Goodall was one of the first to suggest very strongly that this was not the case and that animals, particularly chimpanzees, had unique personalities every bit as real as humans. To offer proof, she and her colleagues took and administered tests to one another that served to classify the personality traits they found in the chimps they were studying. Each of the researchers was asked to rate each of the chimps under observation regarding their personalities for such things as how aggressive or trustful they found them. Since that time, a lot of research has been conducted regarding animal personalities and the consensus has changed—now, it is believed that most animals have unique personalities. In this new effort, the researchers have revisited the histories of the same chimps that were tested in the 1970s and have tested other chimps to learn more about the stability of personality traits as the chimps live their lives over many years.The researchers used different tests, but note the categories in the new tests could be correlated with traits on the original tests. To learn about trait stability in the original chimps (most of which have died), the researchers asked people who had studied them over the years to take the tests. In addition, they also asked other workers studying other wild chimps to take the tests at different points in time. The researchers then compared the personality scores for all of the chimps across multiple time periods. They report that they found remarkable consistency. While there were some caveats and some minor changes due to accumulation of wisdom as the chimps aged, their basic personalities, like those of humans, remained intact.

DOI: 10.1038/sdata.2017.146AbstractResearchers increasingly view animal personality traits as products of natural selection. We present data that describe the personalities of 128 eastern chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes schweinfurthii) currently living in or who lived their lives in the Kasekela and Mitumba communities of Gombe National Park, Tanzania. We obtained ratings on 24 items from an established, reliable, well-validated questionnaire used to study personality in captive chimpanzee populations. Ratings were made by former and present Tanzanian field assistants who followed individual chimpanzees for years and collected detailed behavioral observations. Interrater reliabilities across items ranged from acceptable to good, but the personality dimensions they formed were not as interpretable as those from captive samples. However, the personality dimensions corresponded to ratings of 24 Kasekela chimpanzees on a different questionnaire in 1973 that assessed some similar traits. These correlations established the repeatability and construct validity of the present ratings, indicating that the present data can facilitate historical and prospective studies that will lead to better understanding of the evolution of personality in chimpanzees and other primates. A team of researchers affiliated with institutions in the U.S., the U.K. and Tanzania has found evidence that suggests personality traits in chimpanzees are relatively stable over long periods of time. In their paper published in the journal Scientific Data, the group describes the history of the testing, the types of tests given and what they revealed. © 2017 Phys.org Credit: CC0 Public Domain Citation: Testing chimps in Tanzania over decades suggests personality types are stable (2017, October 26) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2017-10-chimps-tanzania-decades-personality-stable.html New research suggests apes have human-like personalities

These findings hold true even after accounting for type of radiation and the aggressiveness of cancer. This is the most robust analysis (meta-analysis) to date of published literature comparing surgery and radiotherapy for localized prostate cancer. The study is published in the peer-reviewed journal, European Urology.According to senior author, Robert Nam (Odette Cancer Centre, Sunnybrook Research Institute, University of Toronto, Canada):”In the past, studies that have compared the success rates of surgery or radiation have been confusing because of their methods. We have evaluated all the good-quality data comparing surgery and radiotherapy, and the results are pretty conclusive; in general, surgery results in better mortality rates than radiotherapy. Nevertheless, there are times when radiotherapy may be more appropriate than surgery, so it is important that a patient discusses treatment options with his clinician”.Localized prostate cancer — where the cancer is confined to the prostate — accounts for around 80 percent of prostate cancers. Around 400,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year in Europe, meaning that around 320,000 will suffer from localized prostate cancer. The most common way of treating localized prostate cancers are either with radiotherapy, or with surgery. The choice of radiotherapy or surgery varies according to country. For example, in England and Wales, radiotherapy is used more often than surgery.The researchers conducted a meta-analysis that compared 19 studies including up to 118,830 patients who had undergone treatment with either surgery or radiation.The analysis had to consider a variety of studies that compared different parameters (such as duration of the study). Fifteen of the studies compared patients who died of prostate cancer after surgery or radiation; they found that over the duration of the studies, patients were twice as likely to die from prostate cancer after being treated with radiation, compared to surgery, (Hazard Ratio 2.08, 95 percent confidence interval 1.76-2.47, p < 0.00001).Ten of the studies also looked at overall mortality (where the cause of death was not necessarily from prostate cancer), and found that patients treated with radiation were about one and half times more likely to die sooner than patients who had surgery (HR 1.63, 95 percent confidence interval 1.54-1.73, p < 0.00001)"Both treatment approaches should be discussed with patients prior to the start of therapy," said Nam. "The important thing about this research is that it gives physicians and patients additional, information to consider when making the decision about how to treat localized prostate cancer."This systematic review suggests that survival is better after surgery compared to various forms of radiotherapy,” said Professor Nicolas Mottet (St Étienne, France), chairman of the European Association of Urology Prostate Guideline Panel. “It deserves attention, as it is based on the best available data. However, definitive proof needs a large well-conducted randomized control trial, such as the upcoming PROTECT trial, which is due to report next year. So we certainly need to take this analysis into account, but it doesn't yet give us a definitive answer as to the best treatment. Although this paper should not change clinical practice, I agree with the authors, this analysis gives us important, additional information".References:1.

Thursday, June 28, 2018 Tags: Tanzania << Previous PostNext Post >> Posted by TANZANIA — There’s never a shortage of videos of dumb people in the wild, and the latest one is certainly no exception.A couple on safari in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park were seen on camera trying to pet a lion through the window of their vehicle. The video, which has been viewed over 26,000 times, clearly shows a female arm reach out of the window in an attempt to pet the wild animal, which had been resting right below them.At first the lion paid no heed, but after a few seconds it bared its teeth at the passengers and roared. The male passenger in the vehicle quickly closed the window in response.Wildlife Sightings, who published the video, said that trying to touch a lion is “incredibly stupid and ignorant of the tourist that filmed the sighting.” According to The Sun, which had interviewed a South African safari ranger, the lion had the power to tear off a person’s arm or even pull the couple out of the window and kill them.More news: Can you guess the top Instagrammed wedding locations in the world?This is just the latest incident involving tourists acting foolishly in the wild. Last month, a French couple and their young child were caught on camera trying to escape a pack of hungry cheetahs after they exited their car to snap pictures of the animals while at Safari Park Beekse Bergen in the Netherlands.The family got out of their vehicle on two separate occasions to take photographs. The first time, the cheetahs ignored them entirely. But the second time, the cheetahs are seen circling the family, after which the man runs back to the vehicle. The woman is seen picking up the child, trying to stare down an approaching cheetah, and swatting it away as if it’s nothing more than a harmless mosquito.Fortunately, the woman and child made it back to the car just in time.Park manager Niels de Wildt confirmed the authenticity of the video to Dutch radio station NOS Radio 1 News, and said, “These people have been incredibly lucky.” Share Tourist tries to pet a wild lion and what happens next comes as no surprise to anyone Travelweek Group

Salman Khan in Kabir Khan’s latest release Tubelight . Top News Composer : Pritam Lyrics :Amitabh Bhattacharya Kausar Munir For director Kabir Khan’s Tubelight a Salman Khan-starrer that has the 1962 Indo-Sino war in the backdrop the release of composer Pritam’s tunes was spread over a couple of months by the producers Although the singers used in the album deliver earnestly their voices set amid interesting orchestration the compositions aren’t as strong as one would like them to be Then there is the concept of alignment with the theme; there isn’t much The four pieces don’t capture the sense of instability the intensity of a war epic and the longing of waiting for a loved one to return We have always enjoyed vintage Pritam (think Barfi) but the composer doesn’t give us much inventiveness and creative power here The only time one notices a spark is during the preludes and interludes in the album — the taut arrangements that are crafted really well The first song of Tubelight released in the list was Radio; one of the more catchy pieces in the album Radio is an ode to well the radio when it was still a bulky box and a generation gathered around it Pritam uses an accordion and a shehnai to create the prelude just before Kamaal Khan and Amit Mishra sing this one Baal banake joota polish karwa ke naachenge hum taata thaiya sajan radio bajaiyo zara — the imagery Bhattacharya creates is interesting when put alongside the dholak and the drums But rest of the song lacks the punch needed in terms of lyrics What ripples through and works is brilliant orchestration that lifts an ordinary composition Main agar opens with a piano prelude with a violin playing in the background The prelude merges into Atif Aslam’s melancholic piece Just when Aslam is trying to raise the bar by giving his nasal voice a miss despite being on a high pitch some synths and drums interrupt him It’s an odd intrusion and throws the song for which the only section that works is the fixed melodic composition and a triumphant end Tinka tinka dil mera begins just after a prelude on a piano Then there are xylophones and powerful female vocals followed by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s voice The beats are big in the latter part of the piece Pritam adds strings and background vocals to give the piece an operatic feel But after a while Rahat begins to sound too mechanical and it’s easy to lose interest Towards the end the background vocals and orchestration are reasons why one keeps listening to this one Naach meri jaan by Kamaal Khan Nakash Aziz Dev Negi and Tushar Joshi is interesting for two reasons: Bhattacharya’s line Naach meri jaan hoke magan tu chhod ke saare kintu parantu It’s why he stands out in the current pack of lyricists And the sprinkles of Pahari folk But the song loses its sheen in the attempt to tie it all up Overall Tubelight doesn’t deliver Pritam’s finest It doesn’t even deliver his average style of compositions They are the kind one listens to in two situations — either they appear in a film or if it’s one’s
