With an estimated capacity of nearly five to six million tonnes per annum (MTPA), the FSRU Project is expected to aid in balancing the gas network during peak demand days InfraStrata to acquire Meridian Holdings to gain access to the latter’s FSRU Project. (Credit: Free-Photos from Pixabay) InfraStrata is set to acquire Meridian Holdings, the proponent of a floating storage and regasification unit project (FSRU Project) in Barrow-in-Furness, northwest England.The UK-based company, which is engaged in developing energy infrastructure projects, has entered into a term sheet with West Face Long Term Opportunities Global Master in this regard to acquire Meridian for £8m.The acquisition will be conditional on a final investment decision (FID) taken on the proposed FSRU Project, which is expected to have a capital expenditure (CAPEX) of about £350m-£450m. The FSRU is expected to become the first such project to be developed and commercialised in the UK.According to InfraStrata, the FSRU Project’s CAPEX is anticipated to be financed by putting together a consortium of partners at the project level.The company said that considering that over 30% of the UK’s natural gas supplies arrive in the form of liquified natural gas (LNG) cargoes, the FSRU Project is ideally placed to take advantage of LNG arriving in the country and seeking storage and also regasification.The project involves the development of a floating LNG receiving facility offshore Cumbria. It will be designed to supply regasified volumes of natural gas directly into the UK market through its own National Transmission System interconnection at Barrow-in-Furness.The FSRU Project is expected to have 5-6MTPA capacityWith an estimated capacity of nearly five to six million tonnes per annum (MTPA), the FSRU Project is expected to aid in balancing the gas network during peak demand days, said InfraStrata.The company said that it has started discussions with key partners and in due course, is expected to form a consortium for developing the project. The consortium will comprise globally recognised firms involved in the development, construction, operations, and commercialisation of regasification terminals across the world, said InfraStrata.The company has been looking to acquire the project since last year and had even signed an exclusivity agreement with Meridian Holdings last June.InfraStrata CEO John Wood said: “The continued traction that we have been receiving from global players within the LNG markets since the day we announced the exclusivity agreement last year, validates our belief that this FSRU Project is strategic and crucial to the UK’s future natural gas supplies.“As we move towards a more decarbonised economy, natural gas will be the transitional fuel of choice, with LNG playing the all-important role of balancing natural gas and power markets by acting as baseload feedstock for power generation, on the one hand, and providing peak shaving capabilities on the other.”
Three.The third was the jazz man who wore a beautiful navy blue jumper. Claire (see my last blog entry) and I were on one of those wonderful dawdle days. We were looking for the museum of Walloon art but saw a sign post for “The House Of Jazz,” we looked about and walked into a bulding. After visiting the first floor and the lift, we went back down to the first floor and Claire knocked on a door. The man in a blue jumper opened the door and looked at us inquisitively. We returned the gaze, then I said– We saw the sign outside. We just walked in.He explained about the place, which was basically an office with racks full of vinyls smothering the walls and the odd photo of a man with a sax or a harp, the odd bookshelf and aged vinyl players. He told us the nights where we could listen to Jazz in Liege. His jumper was beautiful, he was not so much but that is not my problem.Four.The fourth man I’m going to mention in this episode is not a good one, as the others were indeed good ones. The fourth man is my stalker. I was putting up a Tea Time (Mondays 2PM www.48fm.com) poster, attatching it to a lamp post with sticky tape. He stopped and said,– Hello. I think you are very pretty. You go to the Haute Ecole?– Err yes I do. How do you know that?– I work in the café opposite, I see you every morning. You are very pretty.– Right.– Can I have your telephone number?– Err, well, I don’t know my number, and, well, it doesn’t have any batteries.– Oh.– I guess I’ll see you when I walk past the café!Since I have bumped into him five times, and made myself out to be in a hurry each time. The fact that he knows where I live and work, and I often bump into him leads me to conclude that I have indeed acquired my very first stalker. Of all the curious gentlemen, he is the most horrid and scary and uninteresting. And revolting. I have met many curious gentlemen. I shall tell you about four of them.One.The first was Phil, the heavy metal musician. I went for a drink in a bar with some students. Having played the tambourine with that amazing Japanese bass guitarist that plays on Cornmarket sometimes, I decided to ask him if I could join him and borrow his tambourine. He looked and me and said,– No.So I walked off, slightly disillusioned with the supposed kindness of Belgians. After a song he came back and said,– Where are you from?– England.– If you like you can sing…– No, I do not sing.We discussed Led Zeppelin and Oxford and then I went to the toilet. When I came down, my students had orchestrated me going on stage, and as I secretly wanted to anyhow, I went up and sung a Beatles song and a Dylan song. I pity the audience. Phil said I could come back next Thursday, but I’m inclined to think it is because he wanted something scrawny rather than my voice. I never did.Two.The second was an illustrator. He was sitting in the corner of a restaurant and I took my notebook to him. We talked about cheap art utensils from supermarkets, and he showed me the magazine he drew for sometimes. He’d been to the art school in Liege. I told him about my sister and her thesis on Robert Crumb, and he told me he liked to chill with Robert Crumb’s daughter. The illustrator is my new idol and I have knuckled down to the comic strips I’ve been wanting to make for a while. Earlier that day, I’d been into the FNAC, a culture shop, to browse through the independent comic books and read some really good stuff, and then I’d visited an independent comic book shop. So many coincidences!
Mayor Jay Gillian Dear Friends,Ocean City has a growing population of red foxes, and I want to remind everybody never to feed any wildlife you may encounter.People do not need to be afraid of foxes – they are generally harmless to humans. There are several active dens in Ocean City, and foxes are most visible in the early morning and late evening. Problems do arise when humans start feeding them, and they become more domesticated and less afraid of people. Our Humane Society and animal control officials advise residents and guests never to feed them, to use lids on trash cans and to use outdoor lighting to keep them away from back yards.Ocean City has never received any report of aggressiveness to people and has identified no rabid or diseased foxes. The species is not indigenous to Ocean City, but red foxes have lived here for decades. For the continued protection of these animals and humans, please leave them to survive on their own.On Tuesday afternoon, the Ocean City Theatre Company will present a sensory-friendly production of “The Musical Adventure of Flat Stanley” for children and families affected by autism and other sensory, social and cognitive disabilities. The children’s show includes fewer loud sounds and a reduction in flashing lights. Audience members are free to talk or move during the show and are welcome to bring their own headphones, seat cushions, comfort objects and extra support items to the show. Extra staff and volunteer support will be on hand. The city remains committed to increasing access and inclusion for all with disabilities, and this is a great example. The show starts at 1 p.m. July 25, and $10 tickets are on sale now at the Ocean City Music Pier, oceancityvacation.com/boxoffice or by calling 609-399-6111.With the arrival of hot air and warm ocean water, I want to urge everybody to follow the law that prohibits anybody from jumping off any part of the bridges in or around Ocean City. Jumping from any bridge is extremely dangerous. This local ordinance is a common-sense safety measure that will be strictly enforced.Finally, I want to wish everybody a great Night in Venice weekend. The streets will be crowded with cars, bicycles and pedestrians for the evening celebration on Saturday, so please be patient, cautious, and never drink and drive. Open container laws for pedestrians also will be enforced. Information on our parking and free shuttle service is available with this Guide to Night in Venice.Warm regards,Jay A. GillianMayor
== Matthew May ==Steering Group representative, Alliance for Bakery Students and TraineesThe world seems a relatively gloomy place at the moment, what with the global economic downturn, swine flu and the like. So let’s highlight one or two positive things happening in our industry right now.Firstly, the Alliance for Bakery Students and Trainees’ (ABST) Steering Group is making steady progress working to help deliver a relevant education and training package for the industry and, as you are probably aware, Campden BRI has agreed to become the Network Champion of the National Skills Academy (NSA) for bakery. The NSA Steering Group has been working hard to draw up a draft qualification, with a view to running a pilot course in the north of England from September 2009. The ABST group is also looking at ways to better promote the baking industry, so that the next generation is more readily attracted into it.Secondly, just as the baking industry has united around education and training, it is good to see that the bakery colleges have brought themselves together under the guise of the ABST Bakery Lecturers & Trainers Forum. This group is now working together on how best they can help deliver education and training to the industry.Finally, the ABST Annual Conference took place in Torquay last weekend. The numbers of member colleges were up, student members were up, and the conference was a fantastic opportunity for both students and trainees of the industry to meet and take advantage of the expertise offered by existing industry members, while also having a little fun.
It seems that Greensky Bluegrass has a lot of love for Colorado! The band just recently headlined at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre just last month, and now they’re bringing their jamgrass sounds back to the colorful state for three nights at the Ogden Theatre. The three Denver, CO shows are set to run from December 1st to 3rd, bringing beautiful music to the famed Colorado venue in style!The run marks the second annual trip to the Ogden for Greensky, who performed at the venue for three nights in November of last year as well. If those shows are any indication, then this year’s run is sure to be incredible.For tickets and more information, head here. You can see the show artwork below.
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas legislation that would make it a felony for doctors to provide medical treatments that help transgender youth transition is unlikely to get a hearing. The proposal from four conservative GOP members of the Kansas House has drawn condemnation from LGBTQ lawmakers and advocates. It is among measures in more than a dozen state legislatures targeting transgender youth in sports or medical treatments for them. Republican House health committee Chair Brenda Landwehr said Thursday that the measure probably will not have a hearing because the panel has too much other work, such as proposals for modernizing the state’s mental health system.
Students interested in receiving academic credit for studying “The Good Place” and philosophy should start trying to earn points for their positive actions.This fall, the departments of Film, Television and Theatre (FTT) and Philosophy are joining forces to create “The Good Class,” a six-week, one-credit class that will serve as an interdisciplinary study of “The Good Place,” a hit sitcom on NBC. The class will be restricted to FTT majors and students in the philosophy major or minor, and will feature a visit from television writer and producer Michael Schur, who created “Parks and Recreation” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” in addition to “The Good Place.”Meghan Sullivan — the Rev. John A O’Brien Collegiate Chair and professor of philosophy, and one of the architects of The Good Class — said the department typically aims to bring in “people who have some philosophical dimension to their jobs but they’re not philosophy professors” to speak each year. This year, someone suggested Schur.“We all love ‘The Good Place,’ students reference it in class all the time and in their writing, and it’s really creative and well-done, philosophically,” Sullivan said.So, Sullivan wrote an email to Schur, which got passed through the Notre Dame community to Notre Dame alumnus Regis Philbin, who gave it to his daughter, Jennifer Joy Philbin, who is married to Schur. From there, Sullivan said, Schur agreed to come to campus as long as he could talk to a lot of students about philosophy.In order to ensure Schur’s trip to campus was as fruitful as possible, Sullivan explained, she wanted to make his visit “a whole production” and find a group of students guaranteed to be “totally obsessed with the show” and then “weaponize them” to make the most out of a day with the creator.The idea for a one-credit class about philosophy and “The Good Place” came together between Sullivan and Ricky Herbst, the cinema program director at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center, who suggested they bring in FTT professor Christine Becker to teach the television aspects of the class.Becker jumped at the chance to be involved with the class, as “in addition to loving the show and loving Mike Schur,” it gives her an opportunity to expand her “world of teaching” in a new way.“I was fascinated by a crossover with philosophy and thrilled with the idea of being able to work with someone bringing different approaches, and then students who will have different ways of thinking,” she said. “I always love it when I have students from other majors in my FTT classes because they ask different questions, they think in different ways, they challenge me.”While Schur’s visit itself will be the main event of The Good Class, Sullivan said he will also speak to around 450 freshmen in God and the Good Life — a large class that satisfies the first philosophy requirement — and attend a larger event with the broader Notre Dame community.The professors haven’t set an official syllabus yet — although Becker said formulating the class has been the most fun she’s ever had building a course — but they know it will probably end up featuring an even blend of television and philosophy studies.“There are ways in which they’re not fully discrete. So I don’t think it will be like this day will be FTT day and this day will be philosophy day,” Becker said. “I think the goal is more, where can we find these intersections in the fabric between them and the idea of even storytelling as a notion is philosophical.”The interdisciplinary nature of the course will ultimately be beneficial to students from both departments, Herbst said.“That’s something that we should be finding in more of our classes here, because it’s the way almost every other business is trying to train its people,” he said. “It’s to give them broad exposure and cross-train.”Sullivan added that the show itself is “enormously culturally important for expanding interest in philosophy” in today’s society, which the class will explore.“Everyone does philosophy at some degree in their life, and philosophy is a very important part of everyday life — and a lot of times people don’t believe us about this,” she said. “And for good reason, because a lot of philosophy books are exceptionally boring, but art like this is the counter-example.”In addition, Becker said, this class — which will ultimately speak to “understanding how storytelling is forged” — is a natural extension of the FTT department, as it ensures its students will “be smarter consumers of film and television and have fun along the way.”“You’re not someone who just watches TV, you’re someone who can have an elevated experience of it,” Becker said. “There’s value in understanding how these things are made, how the creative process works, how the industry works, understand the economics behind it and that kind of stuff. You become a media-literate person, but it’s a blast if you like it.”The target demographic for the class, Becker said, is students who are able to hit the ground running in terms of knowledge of the show and creative thinkers. This goal, along with the idea that the class will be a small discussion group, led the professors to create an application with questions that refer to “The Good Place,” such as, “We recently discovered that no one has passed The Good Class in centuries, so please provide your suggestions for how the course should be fairly graded going forward.”“We thought, OK, well we have to have an application, and then the thought is, well, how do we vet people?” Becker said. “We said, ‘Let’s come up with “Good Place”-like questions.’ … One of our ideal students would be someone who’s seen the show, knows it backwards and forwards on day one of that class.”That application is available online — where Sullivan said the professors will likely post updates about the course so anyone who is interested can follow along with it — and is due April 7 by 11:59 p.m.In the end, Herbst said, using “The Good Place” as a case study will show students the benefits of blending two disciplines in an interesting and enjoyable way.“We can be smart about fun things, and we can have fun with smart things,” he said. “And we need to do that much more.”Tags: Department of Film Television and Theatre, department of philosophy, interdisciplinary, media studies, michael schur, philosophy, Television, The good place
