News / DP World reaps double-digit rewards from market recovery and alliance reshuffle

first_imgBy Alexander Whiteman 24/10/2017 DP World hit double-digit growth over the first nine months of 2017, with a strong third quarter assisting the recovery of its operations in the UAE.Total container volumes handled reached 52.3m teu over the nine months to September, up 10% from the 47.5m handled in 2016.Group chairman and chief executive Ahmed Bin Sulayem said the recovery in global trade had gone beyond expectations, with economists and experts revising forecasts upwards.Drewry said: “The strong operational performance has sailed far ahead of Drewry’s growth forecast of 5.5% in 2017. Barring adverse trading environment in Q4, the company should be comfortable in maintaining its lead over the sector’s average.”Double-digit rises were recorded in the third quarter across all three core operating regions: Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMA); Americas and Australia; and Asia Pacific and Indian subcontinent.For the nine-month period, EMA volumes climbed 10.8%, to 21.9m teu, with its hubs in the UAE seeing 4.6% growth with more than 11m teu. Asia-Pacific and Indian subcontinent volumes were up 8.3% to 23.8m teu, while the Americas and Australia saw growth of 14.1% to 6.4m teu.Mr Bin Sulayem said DP World had benefited from the improved trading environment as a result of the new shipping alliances.“Our global portfolio continues to deliver ahead-of-market growth across all three regions, and we have seen an acceleration of growth rates in the third quarter,” he added.“We are pleased to see third-quarter UAE volumes continue to grow despite uncertainty in the region, and our performance in the Middle East & Africa, Americas and Europe remains strong.”During the third quarter, Mr Bin Sulayem said, DP World had added 1.5m teu of new capacity to its Jebel Ali terminal, while an additional 500,000 teu capacity was put into Port Rupert.“We continue to seek growth opportunities in Latin America, Africa and Indian subcontinent where there remains significant structural growth potential,” he said. “Given the encouraging performance so far, we remain well placed to meet full-year 2017 market expectations.”However, Drewry warned that the recent unsuccessful contract negotiation with PT Terminal Peitikemas Surabaya could “detract the shareholders’ value”.“The margin of the 2.1m teu facility could be under pressure, as evident from the financial reports of Pelindo III, which reported that the terminal had an operating margin of 57.2% in FY 2016 – down from the 58% registered in FY 2015.”last_img read more

Illegal mobile phone users to face harsher repercussions

first_img There are signs that North Korea is running into serious difficulties with its corn harvest North Korea Market Price Update: June 8, 2021 (Rice and USD Exchange Rate Only) NewsEconomy SHARE News Illegal mobile phone users to face harsher repercussions US dollar and Chinese reminbi plummet against North Korean won once again In order to block would-be defectors and sensitive internal information from escaping North Korea, Kim Jong Un hashanded down new punitive measures for those using illegal Chinese mobilephones.“The order has come down to treat Chinese cell phone usersas traitors who have colluded with the South Joseon (South Korea) puppet stateand participated in their schemes. Those who connect via phone with South Koreaare even eligible for the death penalty. This threat has produced a gloomy atmospherein the area near the Chinese border,” a source in North Hamgyong Province toldDaily NK.Sources in Ryanggang and South Hamgyong Provincescorroborated this news. Lately, she continued, the State Security Department (SSD)has been dispatching experts with state of the art equipment to conductsurveillance and monitoring through wiretapping. They have been collaboratingwith Bureau 27 (Transmission Surveillance Bureau) in order to trace mobile phone signal direction and origin. Once the signal is located, they deploy Chinesemilitary trucks and motorbikes to swiftly apprehend the offenders.According to the source, North Korean authorities havedetermined that their failure to prevent incidents such as the recent defectionin North Hamgyong Province Hoeryong City is due to their inability to block outinformation networks. In other words, Kim Jong Un is concerned that thepossibility of making foreign telephone calls has a knock-on effect that spursdefection rates. In relation to this, Kim Jong Un issued an order tothoroughly block the usage of Chinese cellphones in January of 2014. Those whoadmitted their wrongdoing were promised forgiveness; however, those who werecaught after the order was put in effect were threatened with being sent to alabor camp, kindling an atmosphere of dread.Despite the regime’s promise of clemency, no residentsstepped forward to admit past wrongdoing. Those who were caught with theillegal phones avoided punishment by bribing the  officials who initiallyapprehended them. The current order appears to be much stronger than theineffective one from the past, the source said, noting, “Enforcement appearedto tighten up around the time of the Party Congress in early May.”  In addition to the latest crackdown, electronic jammingsignals are being used to corrupt the audio quality of foreign calls thatmanage to connect. Many phone calls are suddenly disconnected, according to thesource. Furthermore, the bribe price one needs to pay to escape prosecution hasjumped in proportion to the rising severity of the infraction. Consequently, residents are keeping international phone calls as short as possible.But how much has the bribe price actually risen? When askedabout this, the source explained, “In the past, residents had to payapproximately 5,000-10,000 yuan.Now, it is hard to get out of the situation even if one pays four times thatamount. It feels like agunless, 21st century battlefield out here.”      She added, “Residents have no ability to protest this orderand are doing their best to avoid detection. Those who earn their livingthrough such things as smuggling rely on Chinese cellphones and have complainedthat it’s become even harder to make a living.”    center_img News By Daily NK – 2016.05.31 7:16am News Facebook Twitter AvatarDaily NKQuestions or comments about this article?

Got Flu Symptoms? Stay Away from New Year Gatherings

first_imgAdvertisements Got Flu Symptoms? Stay Away from New Year Gatherings Health & WellnessDecember 29, 2009 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail As Jamaicans prepare to congregate at various locations across the island to ring in the New Year, Director of Health Promotion and Protection in the Ministry of Health, Dr. Eva Lewis Fuller, is reminding persons with flulike symptoms to stay away from public gatherings, in order to prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses such as the influenza virus.In an interview with JIS News, Dr. Lewis Fuller pointed out that there is usually an increase in influenza cases during these cooler months. “If one knows that he or she is ill then he should stay away from these gatherings because he is putting others at risk,” she advised.“The influenza virus, like many other pathogens, is spread by droplets which become airborne when people sneeze or cough or even if they talk. Talking can give rise to these droplets. In these drops, you have germs some of these germs are disease causing and we breathe in a lot of these droplets,” she explained.To those with flulike symptoms, the MOH Health Promotion and Protection Head urged that they observe proper sneezing and cough etiquette to prevent droplets from getting into the respiratory tracts of other persons.She also cited proper hand washing as an important disease prevention method. “Soap and wash the back of the hands, the nails and in between the webs of the fingers. A good wash lasts for 20 to 30 seconds minimum,” she outlined, adding that “we only really recommend the alcohol – based sanitizers when you do not have running water available.”Dr. Lewis Fuller is also appealing to event organizers to ensure that venues are properly ventilated. “Person arranging these gatherings should ensure that there is proper ventilation, because when you ‘dilute’ the effects of these droplets then the likelihood of it getting into others persons lungs is reduced,” she said.Persons with conditions considered high risk for developing complications from the flu and other respiratory illnesses, are asked to seek immediate health care if they begin to experience flulike symptoms.“If you have an underlying chronic disease such as hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, if you have any disease that would impair your immune system, if you have a young child under five, at the first sign or symptom of the flu, which includes coughing, sneezing, sore throat fever or general malaise, go to the doctor or health centre straight away,” Dr. Lewis-Fuller advised.“Do not wait to see what will happen because if you can get the medication which we have available then we could avert any adverse complications occurring,” she emphasized.She also encouraged persons, who are visibly well to continue exercising vigilance in preventing the onset of symptoms of the influenza virus or other respiratory illness.“If you suspect that someone is ill, is coughing or have other flulike symptoms, stay away from them; greet them from a distance. For your relatives coming from abroad, many of them are coming from very cold climates where they are having their seasonal flu, encourage them to get vaccinated before coming to Jamaica,” she advised.“If they have the H1N1 (Influenza A) vaccine available (where they are) then encourage them to have that before they come to Jamaica. That protects them and protects us,” she added. RelatedGot Flu Symptoms? Stay Away from New Year Gatheringscenter_img RelatedGot Flu Symptoms?

Boosts for traffic and pedestrian bridge plans

first_imgBoosts for traffic and pedestrian bridge plans Horsham Rural City Council has moved a step closer to having both additional vehicle and pedestrian river crossings after recent funding milestones for the respective projects.The Commonwealth Government last week announced $100,000 in funding for Council and Regional Roads Victoria to plan for a second river crossing as part of an alternative truck route.Another traffic bridge across the Wimmera River is one of Council’s key transport priorities, and HRCC committed $100,000 in its 2020-2021 Budget for design work.Meanwhile Council at this week’s May meeting resolved to adopt a plan to fund the Hamilton Street Pedestrian Bridge using a combination of Commonwealth and Victorian Government money.It means the pedestrian bridge can move to the tendering stage, with $1.1 million to be used from an existing federal government grant via the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure program.HRCC will also apply for $1.25 million from Regional Development Victoria (RDV).Mayor Robyn Gulline said having both additional vehicle and pedestrian bridges was the ideal outcome for Horsham.A draft concept of the pedestrian bridge. “Council has recognised that a second road bridge has been an emerging need for a number of years. We know that many trucks directly service the CBD. But there are many more which arrive via all three highways but don’t need to be in the centre of town,” Cr Gulline said.“On the other hand, the pedestrian bridge will offer an alternative to car-based commuting and will also create an additional circuit for cyclists and pedestrians exercising along the river.“Horsham does not need to choose between a pedestrian and road bridge, we can achieve both,” she said.Cr Gulline said the location for the truck route and bridge would be determined during the next stage of planning work.“There are several locations being considered for the second road bridge and alternative truck route. The one place we know it won’t be appropriate is in the vicinity of the residential area of Waterlink Estate (opposite Hamilton Street), so having a pedestrian bridge there will not jeopardise plans for another vehicle crossing,” she said.“We thank the Federal Government for its contribution and look forward to working with Regional Roads Victoria to develop a solution that will give us another vehicle bridge and remove trucks which don’t originate or terminate in the CBD from central Horsham and the river precinct.”Background planning has identified that at least 800 houses, and 2000 people would directly benefit from a pedestrian bridge connecting Hamilton Street and the Waterlink Estate.“The pedestrian bridge will be much less costly than a vehicle bridge, and hence can be planned and funded more quickly,” Cr Gulline said. /Public Release.

CU-Boulder Alumna To Fly On Shuttle

first_imgNEWS TIP SHEETUniversity of Colorado at Boulder alumna and NASA astronaut Marsha Ivins is slated to make her fifth journey into space on Feb. 7, when NASA’s space shuttle Atlantis is scheduled to blast off from Cape Kennedy, Fla. Set for launch at 8:11 a.m. MST, Atlantis and its six-person crew will attach the U.S. laboratory module, Destiny, to the International Space Station. Destiny is the first lab to be delivered to the International Space Station and marks the beginning of the 2001 space science odyssey for the station and the Expedition One crew now on board. The shuttle will spend six days docked to the station while the laboratory is being attached. NASA officials estimate it will take three spacewalks by astronauts to complete the assembly of Destiny.Ivins received her bachelor’s degree from CU-Boulder in 1973 in aerospace engineering sciences. She is one of 15 CU-Boulder astronaut-alumni to fly in space.Ivins previously flew aboard Columbia in 1990, Endeavour in 1992 and Columbia in 1994 and 1997. She has logged more than 1,009 hours in space as an astronaut.The Atlantis shuttle mission was originally scheduled for launch on Jan. 18, but the flight was delayed due to electrical wiring problems. Jim Voss, also a CU-Boulder graduate in aerospace engineering, is slated to blast off for the International Space Station on March 1. Voss is scheduled to live aboard the space station for more than four months, conducting microgravity experiments and performing spacewalks to continue construction and ensure the safety of the International Space Station.For more information contact Jim Scott in the CU-Boulder Office of News Services at (303) 492-3114.

Flannery: Who Is the “Godfather” of Intelligent Design?

first_img Share Requesting a (Partial) Retraction from Darrel Falk and BioLogos As the story goes, ID sprung up recently in order to pick up where fundamentalist “creationism” had failed in a plot to inject the Bible into public school science classrooms. This is the Darwinist conspiracy theory I wrote about here the other day. Even if you are sympathetic to ID or are a fair-minded critic, you may not realize that ID’s heritage in fact can be traced back long before the 1993 Pajaro Dunes meeting, or perhaps the 1966 Wistar Symposium.Writing here, Flannery has traced the descent of ID to Anaxagoras, the pre-Socratic philosopher who lived in the fifth century BC. But why get greedy for history? It’s enough to say, as Flannery does, that the “godfather” of ID is Charles Darwin’s colleague and rival Alfred Russel Wallace. As Flannery notes, it was Wallace’s unexpected co-discovery of the theory of evolution by natural selection that, communicated to Darwin privately in 1858, compelled a panicked Darwin to rush to get his own version, in the Origin of Species, into print in 1859.Wallace subsequently split with Darwin, moving toward a position of “intelligent evolution,” in Flannery’s phrase, first over the issue of human exceptionalism. Flannery details the momentous split, and Wallace’s subsequent intellectual evolution, in Nature’s Prophet. Get it at the Discovery Institute Store now.
