Lamprell to build two jack-up rigs for Saudi market

first_imgLamprell has received a letter of intent (LOI) from International Maritime Industries Company (IMI), the Saudi maritime joint venture in which Lamprell is a partner, confirming the intent to award Lamprell the contract for the construction and delivery of two jack-up drilling units.Source: PixabayThe rigs will be built collaboratively between the IMI and Lamprell for delivery to IMI’s end client, Lamprell said on Thursday.There are ongoing discussions between the end client, IMI, and Lamprell to conclude the specifications and contract terms which, once determined, will result in final contract signing for the rigs.The rigs will be built according to the Schedule G requirements for operations in Saudi Arabian waters. Lamprell will undertake most of the fabrication work for both jack-up rigs at its Hamriyah yard, in the United Arab Emirates while maximizing work in Saudi Arabia to approximately 15% of the scope of work.Christopher McDonald, CEO, Lamprell, said: “I am very pleased to receive this letter of intent from IMI for the first two jack-up rigs to be built by IMI and Lamprell. This is a significant step forward for the Saudi maritime yard.“Following Lamprell’s recent announcement regarding its ascension to Saudi Aramco’s long-term agreement program, this is a further demonstration of the importance of the Saudi Arabian market to our strategic aspirations. The developing relationship between IMI and Lamprell will continue to be enhanced as we construct these rigs and we are excited by the opportunity to collaborate with them on such an innovative and important project.”last_img read more

French Open 2018: Simona Halep beats Sloane Stephens in final

first_imgHalep defeated Sloane Stephens in the finalsBBC – World number one Simona Halep finally won her first Grand Slam title with a gutsy comeback victory over American 10th seed Sloane Stephens in the French Open final.Halep, who had lost her three previous major finals, went a set and a break down at Roland Garros.But the 26-year-old Romanian battled back to take a see-saw second set against the US Open champion.She then raced away with the third to win 3-6 6-4 6-1.“I did everything I could. It is amazing what is happening now,” Halep said.“I have been dreaming for this moment since I started playing tennis.”Halep clinched victory with her first match point, Stephens unable to return a powerful first serve.The top seed dropped her racquet in celebration, covering her face with both hands before Stephens walked around the net to warmly hug the champion.Given a standing ovation by the Court Philippe Chatrier crowd, a tearful Halep climbed into the stand behind the baseline to celebrate with her family and coaching team.Focused Halep achieves Grand Slam dreamHalep had lost in two previous French Open finals – to Maria Sharapova in 2014 and Jelena Ostapenko in 2017 – and against Caroline Wozniacki in this year’s Australian Open showpiece.Halep had lost her two previous French Open finalsThe world number one said in the build-up to this match that she felt relaxed and would not be fazed by the pressure of winning her first Slam.And so it proved as she delivered in front of an expectant crowd.Halep was the favourite to finally land her first major title against an opponent who is better known for her success on hard courts rather than clay.But she was beaten by Stephens’ brilliance, not herself, in the opening set.After that Halep took control, winning four games in a row early in the second as momentum turned.An early break in the third set, with Stephens appearing to tire, put the Romanian in command.Backed by plenty of noisy Romanian support, Halep broke again for 4-0 after wearing Stephens down with her relentless returning.She raced through a hold to love and, after taking Stephens to deuce, served out to win her first Slam at the 32nd attempt.Comments Tags: French Open 2018last_img read more

Keeping farm workers safe

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Farming is considered one of the most dangerous occupations in the United States, and the 2017 Farm Science Review (FSR) is ready to help with information to keep farm workers safe.The Ohio State University’s Agricultural Safety and Health program will offer live demonstrations during FSR, Sept. 19-21, at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center near London, Ohio, including the following farm safety displays and demonstrations.New to the Review this year is the Farm Safety Scene, a tabletop hazard hunt depicting a farm. People can inspect the mini farm scene to determine the number of safety hazards they can find, such as mishandling farm equipment or standing in an unsafe area.The Safety in Agriculture for Youth (SAY) project will offer a free bottle of water for completing a quick survey about chores teens are doing on the farm. SAY is a grant project funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture to develop safety and health curriculum for youth involved in agriculture. “The main goal is for youth to be involved in agriculture and to stay safe while they are working,” said Dee Jepsen, State Leader for Agricultural Safety and Health in Ohio State’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES).Stop by the Grain C.A.R.T. (Comprehensive Agricultural Rescue Trailer) for a live demonstration on grain safety awareness at 10 a.m., 11 a.m. and noon on all three days of the Review. Grain kept in on-farm bins or at commercial grain elevators can pose a risk if employees don’t follow safe work practices. Ohio State University Extension offers training on how to avoid that scenario and what to do in an emergency.Safety gear for ATVs will be on display, featuring a newly desiged lightweight helmet and a “crush bar” that provides protection in the event the vehicle flips over. The ATV crush bar is a small, hairpin-shaped hoop that is mounted to the tow bar to prevent the operator from being pinned during a roll-over. The bar is designed to be unobtrusive and to not catch on low hanging obstacles or limit rear cargo capacity. The newly designed ATV helmet is lightweight, has ventilation ducts and lets the wearer see and hear clearly. The helmet has been recommended for occupational use with ATV’s and UTV’s.Tickets for the Review are $7 online, at OSU Extension county offices and at participating agribusinesses, and are $10 at the gate. Children 5 and under are free. More than 120,000 people typically attend the Review, an event sponsored by the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University.

Marketing in unusual times

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Jon Scheve, Superior Feed Ingredients, LLCWhile many farmers still doubt last month’s USDA numbers, the rest of the trade is going along with it. Export pace and ethanol grind are weakening, frost threats are declining, and 10-day forecasts are looking very good for the crops. At this point, a production surprise will be needed for a significant price rebound. Maybe a low ear weight will be identified in this week’s USDA report to give the market a boost?Reports from elevator managers throughout the Midwest say most farmers didn’t sell very much during the recent rally, because they expected prices to go even higher. So, I’m not alone in wishing I would have sold more, but hindsight is always 20/20. Following provides details on three trades I made in the last 4 months. I’ve included my thoughts and rationale when I placed the trade to show context, as well as final outcomes. Trade 1 — Sold straddleOn 4/23/19 when September corn was around $3.70, I sold an August $3.60 straddle (selling both a put and call) and bought a $3.40 put while collecting a net of 29 cents on the trade. This trade was placed on about 10% of my anticipated 2019 production. What does this mean?If Sep corn was $3.60 on 7/26/19, I could keep all 29 centsFor every penny corn was below $3.60 I get less premium penny for penny until $3.40For every penny higher than $3.60 I get less premium penny for penny until $3.89At $3.89 or higher I would have to make a corn sale at $3.60 against Sep futures, but I still keep the 29 cents, so it’s like selling $3.89.At $3.40 or lower I would collect 9 cents regardless of how low prices go but no sale is made. My trade thoughts and rationale when placing the straddle on 4/23/19This trade is most profitable in a sideways market, which I think is the most likely scenario given current market conditions and historical trends. Usually in a normal growing year, prices dip in late August. This straddle helps me gain some premium if the market stays sideways or goes lower, which I can use to help push a final sale to profitable levels down the road. If the market rallies, I’m happy selling 10% of my production at $3.89, because I’ll then “roll” the sale from September to December futures and likely pick up at least 12 to 15 cents in market carry; therefore, manufacturing a trade of at least $4 on Dec corn.Rolling a contract means moving a sale forward to capture marketing carry. I bought September futures back and immediately sold December futures. It didn’t matter what September or December futures were, only the SPREAD between the two months. My sale position remains the same. What happened?In the last 4 months, every possible market scenario happened. The market first went lower, then much higher, and finally it collapsed and settled into a sideways pattern. To say it’s been a roller-coaster ride is an understatement.At the end of July when futures were still above $4.20, I let the options execute to get a $3.60 short on September futures. With the 29-cent premium already collected on the trade, it’s like having a sale at $3.89 Sep futures. What did you do next?The trade above left me with a short September contract expiring at the end of August, I rolled it to December futures on 8/29/19 and collected 10 cents of market carry premium. This makes the sale really worth $3.99 against December futures with premiums included ($3.60 futures sale + 29 of options premium + 10 cents market carry “roll”). Trade 2 — Sold straddleOn 4/23/19 I did the exact same trade again, for all of the same reasons, except I sold a September straddle instead of August (like in trade 1) which expired on 8/23/19. What happened?On the last day that September options were trading, when September futures were about $3.59, I paid 2.5 cents to buy back both sides of the straddle and let the $3.40 put expire worthless. I was left with 26.5 cents of premium profit, but no additional sale was made.I bought back both sides of the straddle on the last day the options were trading. The reason was I didn’t want to let the short put option position execute because that would make me buy futures, and at this point I’m not sure which directions prices can go. I bought the calls backs as well because I thought there was a chance for prices to rally in the future and it would allow me to look for another straddle position to trade in the future. Trade 3 — Bought callsOn 5/28/19 September corn was $4.30, and it seemed likely there would be record widespread planting delays and significant prevent plant acres. Through other trades I already had in place, if the market rallied, 50% of my crop would be sold at $4. However, I wanted to participate if the market continued to go much higher. So, I purchased a $5.50 September call for 6 cents on about 25% of my anticipated 2019 production.I’m usually against buying calls because the market has to rally substantially to offset/justify the price of the call and the market carry. However, the market was experiencing something never seen before, which meant I needed to consider alternative grain marketing strategies and solutions. I knew I wanted to take advantage of a potential rally, but I didn’t want to “put all my eggs in one basket.” To minimize potential loss from buying a call, and having the market never rally further, I selected a higher price point ($5.50) and lower call cost (6 cents).Buying these calls was basically an insurance policy if the extreme happened and the market rallied significantly higher. What happened?The calls expired worthless on 8/23/19. The costs of the calls, were about 1.5 cents across all of my 2019 production, which reduced my profits from Trade 2 (about 2.6 cents of profit from my 2019 production) by about 60%, but I’m still ahead. With all three trades combined, I have 10% of my production sold at $4 against December futures. Considering December corn is at $3.55 today I should probably feel better about these trades now. My 2019 corn positionToday I have 45% of my anticipated 2019 production sold with an average price of $3.95 futures. I also have 20% of my 2020 corn sold at $4.14 average futures price.There has never been a year like this, and harvest hasn’t even started. In June, many thought for the first time the U.S. wouldn’t produce enough corn to meet demand. However, in hindsight, the market focused so heavily on how the widespread planting delays would affect supply, it didn’t examine how price would impact demand.Questions about acres still linger, but are fading by many market participants. The widespread good weather conditions through August and now September mean a surprise from an upcoming USDA report is likely necessary for a significant rally. Please email [email protected] with any questions or to learn more.

Installing Cork Insulation

first_imgWhat do you do if you’re a builder and your client (that would be me) hands you a material that no one’s ever heard of, let alone installed in this country, and asks you to insulate his house with it? A lot of smart builders would run the other way. Eli Gould, our partner in the Dummerston, Vermont farmhouse we’re renovating (really re-building), took it on as a challenge.Last week I wrote about the cork insulation that we’ve installed — the last of it went up at the end of last week. Here I’ll review some of the installation details that Eli and his crew figured out — including such seemingly minor issues as how to cut the stuff. Planning for the cork months agoWhen we first started talking about expanded-cork insulation last summer, we requested some samples to work with. Along with being a designer-builder, Eli has an R&D company, PreCraft, Inc., through which he works on figuring out better building systems and how advanced building components can work together. This involves a lot of prototyping, and Eli jumped at the opportunity to get his hands on some cork.Amorim Isolamentos, which manufacturers the cork insulation in Portugal, sent over several bundles of the boardstock insulation so that we — mostly Eli — could figure out how we would use it and exactly what we wanted to order. The material is available in thicknesses from a half-inch to about 12 inches and with square or shiplap edges. The exposed face of the cork we used is about 18″ x 36″. Cutting cork insulationJust about every conceivable option was tried for cutting the cork: from tools our great-grandfathers would have used to high-tech timber-frame tools. The large teeth on a two-man crosscut saw proved very effective at minimizing the kerf thickness and keeping the kerf cleaned out as they cut, but a chainsaw-like timber-framing saw proved best for bevel cuts, though it created at fairly thick kerf.One of the nice things about working with cork is that all the sawdust on the ground from the cutting is fully biodegradable. In fact, it may make a nice mulch! From an energy performance standpoint we wanted to achieve at least R-40 in the house walls and achieve that with a combination of cavity-fill insulation in the walls and rigid insulation on the exterior. We planned to use Zip sheathing from Huber Engineered Woods as the air barrier (with all edges and joints taped), allowing the interior insulation system to dry to the interior and a moderately permeable exterior insulation to dry to the exterior.Had this been new construction, we would probably have picked a very different insulation system that relied just on (less expensive) cavity-fill insulation, but we were dealing with an existing 200-year-old frame as out starting point, so we decided early on that exterior rigid insulation would be part of the system, and to meet our R-value goals we opted for 6 inches of cork.Because we had installed 6 inches of another innovative insulation material (Foamglas) on the outside of the new foundation walls, continuing the 6-inch, non-structural layer upward on the wall made a lot of sense. The 6 inches of cork would add about R-21 to the wall system. Securing the corkAs the sheets of cork were attached to the wall, the upper shiplap edge was screwed into the framing with angled screws. Once the housewrap layer is entirely installed, full-dimension, 1″ x 3″ strapping will be installed vertically and screwed into the framing with 8-inch Simpson Strong Tie screws. The screws will be countersunk into the strapping, providing a little over an inch of purchase into the Zip sheathing and framing. Horizontal clapboard siding will then be nailed onto the strapping. Alex is founder of BuildingGreen, Inc. and executive editor of Environmental Building News. In 2012 he founded the Resilient Design Institute. To keep up with Alex’s latest articles and musings, you can sign up for his Twitter feed. Complicated angle cutsThere was really tricky detailing at the window surrounds. The bottom and top edges of the surrounds (see my earlier blog on window surrounds) are pitched, so the cork insulation had to be cut with a matching bevel and slid in. We wanted a fairly tight fit for energy-performance reasons, but they had to be able to slide the cork in. And in doing so, they had to make sure that the pre-applied Pro Clima Solitex water-resistant barrier (housewrap) on the window surrounds would remain exposed so that it could be properly overlapped and taped to the housewrap being installed on the whole house. Tricky detailing indeed.Similarly challenging details had to be dealt with at the roof edge — both at the eaves and gable end, but the completed job looked great! Sadly, the cork is now hidden by the housewrap, but I loved admiring it before it was covered. Shiplap edgesIn experimenting with the cork samples we recognized that tight joints — as you can achieve with rigid foam insulation — would be hard to achieve with the product, so we wanted to avoid joints extending through the material. Installing two layers of 3-inch cork was an option, overlapping the joints, but we opted to order 6-inch material with shiplap on all edges so that through-gaps would be avoided.Working up from the foundation, the bottom edge of the first course of cork was beveled to match the drainage bevel that we created with the Foamglas foundation insulation. That first course was installed on top of a metal termite-flashing layer that our roofer, Travis Slade, made up.The shiplap was configured so that any moisture running down the outside of the cork would remain on the outside and not extend through it. At the corners of the building, the overlaps were tricky — but needed to ensure that no gaps extended through. Frankly, I’m not sure how Eli’s crew figured that out — but they did a great job.

Welcome to yet another IoT platform

first_imgRelated Posts Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces How Myia Health’s Partnership with Mercy Virtua… Tags:#cloud#IoT#platforms#Synapse Internet of Things Makes it Easier to Steal You…center_img ReadWrite Sponsors Follow the Puck You’re probably thinking “Really?!? Don’t we already have enough?” And you’d be right. The last count I heard was there are over 125 IoT platforms in the industry. Doesn’t IoT have enough problems reaching maturity without more platforms muddying the waters?That’s not the worst of it, though. If you’re anything like me you are probably asking “What does a platform actually do?” The short answer is…. absolutely nothing by itself. However, I contend that many platforms are incredibly useful.What does a platform actually do?A platform doesn’t solve any end problem on its own. A good platform solves a set of hard yet common problems in such a way that many applications within that domain can deliver the needed functionality much more rapidly. Often, these are problems not directly associated with any unique feature of a solution, but with certain qualities such as scalability, reliability, and security.These qualities are often forgotten in the early design stages of a new product, especially in a new industry. In fact, they don’t matter at all early on, but they then bite hard as the industry attempts to reach maturity. A good platform addresses these general, yet difficult, qualities while allowing the end-solution developer to focus on a more specific set of problems.Cloud platforms are a prime example. By themselves, they aren’t very useful to anyone, but they are great enablers to just about any software application. Historically IT infrastructure has been difficult to resource, build, and maintain. This became more difficult as applications required additional scale, reliability, and security.Cloud platform vendors solve these common problems by providing the infrastructure, the networking, the compute resources, the storage resources, and the security infrastructure as services to other applications. This has allowed IT to scale rapidly in such a way as would never have been possible before because these platforms solve a set of hard problems common to that domain.So, what is an IoT platform?Simply put… An IoT platform solves a set of hard problems common to IoT. That doesn’t really help, though, so can we get more specific?Let’s start by segmenting the IoT solution into two problem domains based on the differences in infrastructure and environment; in other words, the cloud and the things. The “cloud” is the set of stuff that can be done within IT or the cloud today. The “things” refer to the physical devices performing the data collection feeding the IoT solution and the control of the IoT devices themselves.What does an IoT cloud platform do?I mentioned 125 IoT platforms. These are predominately cloud platforms. IoT cloud platforms solve common IoT problems such as large-scale data ingestion, pruning, analysis, learning and decision making. Many make it easy to represent a variety of disparate Thing types in common ways. Some even provide remote management of the Things. All of these are problems common to the IoT domain and greatly aid in bringing IoT to maturity.While solving “cloud” problems for IoT is important, there remain many important aspects of IoT solutions that aren’t handled by IoT cloud platforms. Many IoT solutions fail to launch in any meaningful scope due to the set of problems beneath the cloud… the problems of the “Things” themselves.Daniel Barnes, Director of Product Management, SynapseWelcome the IoT thing platformIoT cloud platforms rely heavily on the controlled environment of the data center to implement their solutions to scalability, reliability, and security. The “T” in IoT changes the environment drastically. Instead of commodity compute resources, ample power supply, and high bandwidth networking, the Things often run with low power, resource constrained embedded processors and wireless networking. In many cases, the networking isn’t based on reliable IP protocols such as TCP. In addition, these Things are placed in non-ideal environments such as orchards, factories, on livestock, and bicycles.And we still want to run software on these Things. Why? Because some decisions cannot be made in the cloud. There are a variety of reasons that decision-making logic must be implemented on the Things themselves. In some cases, decisions cannot tolerate the roundtrip delay from event to actuation. For example, a lighting application requires sub-second response times to a switch being pressed. In other cases, power conservation is necessary to reduce the maintenance costs requiring specialized logic on the Things. For example, a battery-operated sensor that wakes up to transmit data once an hour requires specialized embedded programming to manage the processor sleep cycles, wireless radio, and the reliable data transmission.The point here is NOT that all decisions must be made on the Things, but that the design of any IoT solution must consider where decision making occurs. Once software is introduced onto the Things, then all of the non-ideal environmental constraints start introducing some very interesting problems, such as specialized developer skill sets, wireless site deployments, and long-term software lifecycle maintenance.These are hard problems. However, many of these problems should have common solutions. They must be solved for IoT to reach maturity.So, yes. Let’s welcome the new type of IoT platform.

Thalassaemic IAS aspirant Sukhsohit Singh undergoes 2nd medical test

first_imgEven as civil services aspirant Sukhsohit Singh, who was rejected on medical grounds for being thalassemic in the first test, appeared for a second examination at Delhi’s Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital on Friday, the Minister of State in the PMO, V. Narayanswami, said he “will be the first person to accommodate” the youth if he clears it. “To give him a fair chance we organised a second medical test. We are waiting for the report of the doctors. It is a peculiar and first of its kind issue for us,” the minister said adding the government has “adjusted people with disabilities” in the past. Narayanswami however said thalassemia had a great impact on functioning of a person. “We understand the situation but one must factor in the hard medical assessment and the strenuous nature of the job he is aspiring for,” he added. Minister for Information & Broadcasting Ambika Soni had on Thursday assured that she would take up the matter with the law ministry and her cabinet colleagues. “The young boy cannot be denied opportunity. My heart goes out for the parents. We all need to re-look the law,” she had said. Singh had cracked one of India’s toughest examinations but was refused to be accepted for the prestigious civil services after he failed in the medical test held at Safdarjung Hospital. The matter has now also become a symbolic battle for those with rare medical conditions and against the discrimination they face. Singh has been contemplating filing a PIL in the Supreme Court on behalf of the Federation of Indian Thalassemics if the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC), which conducts civil services examination, rejects him finally.advertisementFor more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img read more

Even their highest goalscorer, Miku, who scored in the last four matches, was kept quiet throughout.It was only in the second session that Bengaluru showed more urgency, and with Udanta on the field, chances came thick and fast. Captain Chhetri missed from close range early in the second half but more than made up for that miss with a superb equaliser in the 85th minute. Left unmarked, Chhetri simply picked up a pass from Toni Dovale and gave Chennaiyin goalkeeper Karanjit Singh no chance with his half-volley.A rocket of a volley from @chetrisunil11 brought @bengalurufc level! #LetsFootball #BENCHE pic.twitter.com/AWLYpcqo9V- Indian Super League (@IndSuperLeague) December 17, 2017Chhetri appeared to have rescued a crucial point and saved Bengaluru’s proud home record at the Fortress. However, Dhanpal Ganesh silenced the crowd in the 88th minute when he rose high to meet a corner from Rene Mihelic.last_img read more
