Colombians Travel for Hours to Receive Medical Care from USNS Comfort Crew

first_imgBy Dialogo June 15, 2009 TUMACO, Colombia – More than 800 Colombians from remote regions in the country traveled several hours by land and sea to receive medical care at Max Seidel, the main medical treatment site for the Continuing Promise 2009 (CP09) mission here June 11. The medical site is manned by crewmembers assigned to hospital ship USNS Comfort (T-AH 20) that provide general medicine, optometry, gynecology, dental, and physical therapy services to patients largely on a first-come, first-served basis for assigned days. However, patient administrators on site made an exception for the waves of hundreds of patients arriving from these outlying villages to provide the care they needed in a timely manner. “I’m happy and proud at the way we have been taking care of these patients,” said Lt. Cmdr. Daniel Daurora, site leader at Max Seidel. “To make this happen for that many people, it goes a long way to show our dedication to help those that are not as fortunate.” Funding and escorting for the transportation of the villagers was made possible with the help of host nation police, U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and the U.S. Embassy´s Narcotics Affairs Section. “It took a long time to get here, but it was well worth it,” said Juan Castillo, a patient from a remote village outside of Tumaco. “The care I received here has been amazing and everyone I came across at this site has been very caring and respectful.” Castillo was appreciative of the timeliness and organization at medical site. During his visit to Max Seidel he received an eye exam and a pair of reading and sunglasses. “I truly feel blessed to have had the opportunity to receive care from the Comfort’s crew,” said Castillo. “I’m definitely going back to the village to tell my friends and family what great things you are doing for our country.” Comfort is scheduled to be in Colombia until June 17. The next stop is El Salvador where Comfort continues its four-month humanitarian and civic assistance mission in the Caribbean and Latin America in support of CP09.last_img read more

Vaccine news unleashes new momentum in stock market as hunkered-down investors flee cash

first_img “It’s a risk on day. It’s going to be the reopening stocks and what’s going to lag is the stay-at-home stocks. We’re in a transition period,” said Doll, adding for the trade to persist, investors will need to have confidence the global economy will be able to grow at a sustainable pace.As the Dow and S&P 500 rallied to record highs, Treasury yields pressed higher, with the 10-year yield rising to 0.95%, its highest level since March. Yields move opposite price, and bonds sold off as investors focused on the potential improvement in the economy. “If you can look forward and say we’re going to return to something closer to normal life, a lot of those cheap stocks could look attractive. This could be the beginning of the rotation into value and small caps that we’ve talked about for a long time,” said Ed Keon, chief investment strategist at QMA.The small cap Russell 2000 jumped 5.5%. The high flying FANG names, however, lagged. Facebook and Amazon were both down nearly 3%, and analysts said they could now underperform if the value rotation continues.“We didn’t get a blue wave, and now we have an announcement of a vaccine, and there are people today who are capitulating. You don’t get a Dow up 1,300 points without people capitulating,” said Bob Doll, chief equities strategist and portfolio manager at Nuveen. Doll said the news has forced investors, who were waiting for the election to be over or worried about the pandemic, to take cash off the sidelines.- Advertisement – Stocks skyrocketed and bond yields surged as investors bet Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine will help the broader economy recover and revive cyclicals and other industries that were beaten down by the pandemic.The Dow was up more than 4%, while Nasdaq was up just 1% as laggard sectors like energy and financials outperformed tech. Stay-at-home plays, like Netflix and Zoom were sharply lower, but airlines rallied 16%. The S&P energy sector, still down 45% this year, was up more than 14%, and financials were up 8%.Pfizer announced earlier Monday that its vaccine is more than 90% effective, and while it will not be broadly distributed for months, investors bet that the economy will reopen and people will travel, return to work and be able to gather again in public in the next year.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – The Wall Street Bull (The Charging Bull) is seen during Covid-19 pandemic in Lower Manhattan, New York City, United States on May 26, 2020.Tayfun Coskun | Anadolu Agency | Getty Images The vaccine news comes as the coronavirus is again spreading at a rapid rate, with record levels of new cases that could result in more partial shutdowns and more months of social distancing and other precautionary behavior.But the vaccine should still help the outlook.“I think people are going to stop having anxiety everyday…I think we see the beginning of the end. That’s a big deal,” said Tom Lee, Fundstrat head of research. “I think the market was happy to wait until we got vaccine progress before we got the rotation. There was a huge amount of underperformance in these cyclicals and epicenter stocks. We could see months and months of this. This could rally for awhile.”Lee said the market is looking ahead, and is not focusing on valuations but on the prospect of earnings revisions for many companies. Cruise stocks, for instance, soared on optimism that bookings will increase. Royal Caribbean was up 25%. Movie theatre operator AMC Entertainment surged 60%.“The public mood will change, then the confidence surveys will show that. CEOs will have more visibility, and then people will start to say earnings will go up a lot,” said Lee.Lee said investors have been holding too much cash. “People have been doomsaying for so long. It’s more likely we’re going to rally for some period of time. We’re in the final months of the year, and that Santa Claus rally could kick in,” said Lee. Lee said stocks could rally another 10%, taking the S&P 500 to 3,900 by year end.Stocks also got a lift from the possible resolution of the U.S. election, with Democrat Joe Biden declared the presumptive winner on Saturday. President Donald Trump has not conceded, and Republicans are waging legal challenges to the results in some states.“Despite the Trump campaign’s commitment to more legal action, my observation is the markets are signaling the election has been resolved. The outcome has been determined,” said Michael Arone, chief investment strategist at State Street Global Advisors. “The market is moving on like this is a done deal.”Stocks rallied last week, as investors welcomed a split government, with a Democrat in the White House, but Republicans still holding the Senate. The fear had been that Biden could implement market unfriendly policies like higher corporate and capital gains tax rates if Democrats gained control of the Congress.JPMorgan strategists said the S&P 500 should be at 4000 by early next year based on the combination of the Biden victory and the vaccine. “The equity market is facing one of the best backdrops for sustained gains in years. After a prolonged period of elevated risks,” they wrote. Gridlock in Washington should likely result in no tax increase and a ratcheting down of trade wars.Analysts said there are plenty of risks remaining, including the fact that Congress has not passed a stimulus package.Lee said stimulus is a necessary bridge to help businesses and individuals get through the next couple of months, while they await a vaccine. If Congress continues to battle about it, that could be a negative.“This is not about a fiscal deficit. This is about people needing a financial lifeline urgently,” said Lee.Arone said the Pfizer news is extremely positive and the market should rally on it. The market expects change, but consumer behavior has to start to change to support the gains in leisure and other stocks. Value stocks have also had a number of false rallies.“The big question is once a solution is determined, given the environment, are we in this much greater growth, higher inflation, potentially higher rates – a global economic recovery? Of that, I’m more skeptical. I need to see more evidence of that,” he said. – Advertisement –last_img read more

The program includes, in addition to sessions of professional nautical associations and communities of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, numerous professional presentations. And on the first day and after the official opening, introductory speeches were held.

One third of that amount is spent by boaters on catering services, sports, entertainment and culture, which clearly shows that through nautical we can build all other forms of tourism and grow from a country of seasonal tourism to a destination of year-round tourism. Nautical tourism is becoming the most dynamic tourism product and has huge potential, but we need to make wise moves so that this is the last year in which we record stagnation or a slight drop of 1,2 percent in arrivals”, Said the Vice President of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce for Agriculture and Tourism Dragan Kovačević at the opening of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce Nautical Days, which are held as part of the 20th Biograd Boat Show.He also referred to the sojourn tax for sailors, which was the central topic at last year’s Croatian Chamber of Commerce Nautical Days, but also to the current Maritime Property Act. “In the future, nautical tourism should not be managed by more ministries, state institutions and more units of local and regional self-government. It must not fall victim to institutional inconsistencies and overlaps, “Said Kovačević, noting that the amount of sojourn taxes cannot be the result of administrative mathematics, but a carefully structured system that takes into account the real life and needs of boaters. State Secretary at the Ministry of Tourism Tonči Glavina  he spoke about the reform package of tourism laws aimed at decentralizing professionalisations and contributing to the balanced development of the system of tourist boards. The reforms relate to the Law on Tourist Boards, the Law on Tourist Tax and the Law on Tourist Membership Fees. “As for the nautical of the important Law on Sojourn Tax, the new Law on the Distribution of Sojourn Tax Revenues will follow the land model, which will give 65 percent of revenues to local governments, 15 percent to county tourist boards, and the remaining 20 percent to the CNTB Head Office. promotions”, Glavina pointed out. According to the current Law on Sojourn Tax, 50 percent of the funds are distributed to the CNTB Head Office, 40 percent to local self-government units and 10 percent to national parks. Glavina also emphasized that from 2020, the county assemblies will determine the amount of the sojourn tax, and not the Government as before, which will contribute to further decentralization and strengthening the development tourism potential./ / / CALCULATION OF RESIDENCE TAX FEES FOR BOATERS IN 2019State Secretary for the Sea from the Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure Maja Markovčić Kostelac presented new legislation for nautical tourism and maritime affairs relating to amendments to the Law on Harbor Master’s Offices, the Law on Amendments to the Maritime Code and the Law on Maritime Property and Maritime Affairs ports. “The reform of maritime legislation, which we are implementing through amendments to the three core laws, will lead to an increase in the competitiveness of the maritime economy, the digitalisation of the maritime system in the next 3 years,  raising the safety of navigation and the protection of the sea and the effective management of maritime assets “, emphasized Markovčić Kostelac.Growth of nautical tourism”In the period January – September 2018, more than 440.000 arrivals and more than 3 million overnight stays in nautical charter were registered, which are approximately at the level of last year, while the leading markets in terms of the number of overnight stays in nautical charter are traditionally Germany and Austria”, Said the director of the CNTB Head Office Kristijan Staničić, adding that significant efforts are being made in the CNTB’s promotional activities in the field of nautical tourism, through the Brand campaign, PPS Preseason and PPS Postseason campaigns and through social networks.RELATED NEWS:NEXT THREE DAYS BIOGRAD NA MORU IS THE CENTER OF NAUTICS OF CENTRAL EUROPE – BIOGRAD BOAT SHOWRESEARCH RESULTS PRESENTED “ATTITUDES AND CONSUMPTION OF NAUTICIANS IN CROATIA – TOMAS NAUTIKA YACHTING 2017.”last_img read more

Thailand had blamed its withdrawal on “special circumstances related to Covid-19 in addition to injuries to key players”, the BWF said in a statement.Badminton Association of Thailand president Patama Leeswadtrakul said separately that the decision was triggered by the withdrawal of several players.”Despite Denmark’s strict measures and procedures applied to players… it’s understandable for some of the full-team players to withdraw because they are concerned about the pandemic,” she said.Ratchanok’s coach Patpapol Ngensrisuk told AFP that the world number five was worried about catching coronavirus ahead of next year’s postponed Tokyo Olympics. Topics :center_img “Ratchanok is very concerned about COVID-19 because she has already qualified for the Olympics.

Rolls-Royce to install energy management system on nine Havila vessels

first_imgRolls-Royce Commercial Marine has been awarded a contract to install its energy management system (EMS) across nine vessels in the Havila Shipping fleet.Illusration; One of Havila’s vessels; Image by: Mark Harkin; Source: Wikimedia – under the CC BY 2.0 licenseRolls-Royce said on Tuesday that the energy management system would be installed on four anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) ships, four platform supply vessels (PSV), and one rescue and recovery vessel (RRV).The company said that the installations on Havila’s fleet were scheduled to be up and running by March 1, 2019.The EMS was first introduced in November 2017 by Rolls-Royce as part of a suite of vessel intelligent asset management products and has since then been installed on over 50 vessels.A key benefit of the EMS is that a ship’s crew can see the effect that running machinery has on fuel consumption in real-time.The system’s sensors assess fuel consumption against, amongst other things, vessel speed, electrical load and the relationship between propeller pitch and RPM. Existing DP sensors are also used to calculate the external forces – wind speed and wave force – acting on the vessel.Olav Haug Vikebakk, deputy managing director, Havila Shipping, said: “Our vessels operate various Rolls-Royce propulsion and machinery systems, so its EMS is a perfect fit for us.“The tool allows us to implement operational changes in real-time to immediately reduce fuel consumption and reduce unnecessary running hours on equipment like generators.”Marco Camporeale, general manager of ISM solutions at Rolls-Royce, added: “The Rolls-Royce EMS allows all parties to more fully understand the performance of their vessels. The technology is applicable to any vessel-type operating equipment from any manufacturer.”“While it is too early to evaluate the operational and performance data for the first Havila ship, Rolls-Royce has EMS customers reporting annual fuel savings of up to 20%,” the company said.last_img read more

Calypsonian threatens legal action against Calypso Association

first_img Sharing is caring! LocalNews Calypsonian threatens legal action against Calypso Association by: – February 8, 2012 Share Share Tweetcenter_img Victor Bique AKA ComforterVictor “Comforter” Bique says he has taken a matter concerning his failure to be added to the list of Calypsonians to perform on the final night this year’s competition to his lawyers.The Comforter said a letter was issued to the Dominica Calypso Association (DCA) today through his lawyers, concerning information that he received from a reliable source that he was tied at number nine with another calypsonian at the Semi Finals competition.“After they receive the letter from my lawyer, if they don’t acknowledge it then they will be sued. I deserve to be in the finals and they need to make the judging public. I hear the list is still in the private care of one of the judges. The DCA will never tell the world the truth if they in fact blundered where I was concerned but I have a strong feeling that they did,” he said.Comforter told Dominica Vibes News that he when he received information that he had tied with another Calypsonian and that he should investigate the matter, he immediately called the President of the DCA whose response was; “shate a judge talk; that was his exact words over the phone to me; “a judge talk”. He said he went to the Association’s office later to receive his cheque as well as information regarding his performance as it his right to know where he was placed but was unsuccessful.“I went to the Association’s office yesterday afternoon and I met Ghost there so I asked him to see the results of where I was placed because there was a talk that me and Sye tied but Ghost is a rude man. He told me if I’m looking for any information go and look for the judges. Ghost treated me bad yesterday morning when I went to collect my cheque and to get information, we had a heated argument it even went personal and he was very rude so this tells me that somebody is hiding something.”He says there is no rule against adding lines to your song so he could not have been disqualified because he added a few lines.“There is no law saying that you cannot be flexible and just add a few words to enhance your song so there is no law against that. That was always part of my song but I saved it for the Semi’s because I kept asking in the song what were you saying, what were you saying and finally the pastor answered me.”Comforter says “I was supposed to be in the finals and because of politics here it goes”.Dominica Vibes News contacted the President of the DCA Kelly “Ghost” Williams but he did not wish to comment.Dominica Vibes News Share 54 Views   5 commentslast_img read more
