  • Samsung Reports on Contract Cancellation New LoI

    first_imgzoomIllustration; Image Courtesy: Screenshot from Wikimedia/Towel 401 under public domain license South Korean shipbuilder Samsung Heavy Industries informed that it has cancelled a contract for the construction of three special-purpose ships.The contract, worth KRW 415.7 billion (USD 366.1 million), was secured back in July 2018 with an undisclosed North American shipowner.Samsung said that the reason behind the termination was the shipowner’s inability to meet the shipbuilding price payment deadline.However, the company has signed a Letter of Intent (LoI) with a new client interested in taking over the cancelled ships, hence, SHI expects the impact from contract cancellation to be limited. The new deal is yet to be finalized.Earlier this week, Samsung won its first order this year for the construction of two liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers.The contract is worth KRW 419.9 billion (around USD 376 million) and has been secured with Denmark’s Celsius Tankers.The two 180,000 cbm vessels are scheduled for delivery in 2021.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

  • Unnerved by personal attacks, Tiwari firm on putting up tough fight against opponents

    first_imgNew Delhi: Even after AAP’s North East Delhi candidate Dilip Pandey sought votes for himself and asked people not to vote for a “singer-dancer” like Manoj Tiwari, the Delhi BJP chief seems unnerved by such personal attacks on his art and hard work. With just two days to go for the polls in Delhi, the saffron party has concluded that it remains unbothered by the alliance storm that both the Congress and AAP had kicked up. Irrespective of who was responsible for the alliance’s fall, the BJP has resolved to put up a tough fight against both its major opposition parties. Also Read – Odd-Even: CM seeks transport dept’s views on exemption to women, two wheelers, CNG vehiclesResponding to allegations from the AAP camp, Tiwari had said that while Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his entourage had intended the “singer-dancer” remark as an insult, the sizeable Poorvanchali population in North East Delhi has not responded accordingly. With a large part of the voting population in Tiwari’s constituency being Poorvanchali, they seem to have taken it as a challenge to elect him and prove AAP wrong. It seems that Tiwari is proving too tough for his opponents in the Poorvanchali-heavy constituency. Also Read – More good air days in Delhi due to Centre’s steps: JavadekarAccording to age-old poet Tulsidas, people of a group tend to be charged-up when their own are insulted, and this will come true in all likelihood when the Capital goes to polls on May 12. The fact that former Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit contesting against Tiwari will also not be able to sway voters in the area. This is purely because Tiwari has connected with Poorvanchali people on an emotional level that no other candidate could possibly achieve. Moreover, popular Haryanvi singer-dancer Sapna Chaudhary campaigning for Tiwari in NE Delhi has lent her support for the saffron party in large numbers. And the combined campaign efforts from both Tiwari and Chaudhary have turned AAP’s belittling attack into something Poorvanchalis can be proud of. Taking inspiration from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Tiwari has made sure AAP’s insults reach all of the Poorvanchali population in Delhi, which has resulted in massive support from the community for the Delhi BJP chief. And this is exemplified by Tiwari’s comment, saying that people of Delhi will teach Congress and AAP a lesson when the results come out on May 23. Further, it seems very clear that while both Congress and AAP are busy blaming each other, the electorate in Delhi will focus on voting for a party that can get work done, especially ones relating to outstanding development.last_img read more

  • Lone ranger Sole Ohioan took different route to OSU

    Of the 23 players on the Ohio State women’s ice hockey team, senior forward Michele Tonnessen is the only Buckeye born and raised in Ohio. The other 22 members hail from dominant hockey domains like Minnesota, Wisconsin and Canada.The Gahanna native has been ice skating for as long as she remembers, but didn’t start playing hockey until she was 10 years old. With two older brothers who played, Tonnessen said she grew up around the sport and quickly became familiar with it.“After watching them play and having to travel around with my parents, I guess I just kind of decided I wanted to play rather than watch,” Tonnessen said.But Tonnessen encountered a dilemma many young girls face in non-traditional hockey states: women teams can be few and far between.Coach Jackie Barto said Ohio doesn’t possess as much strong talent as traditional hockey states, so the “bulk of our recruiting is up north.”“We’re looking to bring in the best hockey players at Ohio State,” Barto said. If there’s an Ohio girl who shows promise at the Division I level, “we’re going to try and make it work.”It was Tonnessen’s sophomore year of high school when college hockey became a real possibilities. After attending OSU’s summer camp, she weighed her skills against other campers and solicited advice from the coaches about her potential.“We knew she would be a hard worker, that she would continue to grow and develop while she’s here in our program,” Barto said.“Once I knew I had a chance, I knew that I wanted it,” Tonnessen said.So Tonnessen played with the boys until her senior year of high school. She switched to the women’s game after OSU coaches told her she’d need experience in the women’s game to be recruited.“It was kind of a no-brainer to switch over,” Tonnessen said.Tonnessen joined the Ohio Flames, a women’s club team, during the 2005-2006 season. The Flames advanced to nationals after becoming the 2006 Under-19 Mid-Am District Champions.Although playing the women’s game took some adjusting for the first two years, Tonnessen believes her experience in men’s hockey has helped her in the long run.“It makes you more physical, it makes you tougher, a bit faster,” Tonnessen said. “I think it just gives you an edge on everybody else. It makes you more competitive.”Even though the women’s game proved to be slower for Tonnessen, she said it took hard work to play the women’s way.“It was a lot more skill and finesse with stick handling,” she said. “You could see plays develop.”But despite the hockey program, Tonnessen said she came to OSU because it was close to home and her two brothers graduated as Buckeyes. It was more about the school and academics. Hockey was just a “bonus that ended up coming along with it,” she said.As Tonnessen’s collegiate hockey career comes to an end, Barto credits Tonnessen for being a great representative of OSU hockey.“She’s been a good teammate; … a positive influence and member of the program,” Barto said. “She’s become the best hockey player she can become.” read more

  • Opinion Michigan bringing in former Alabama coordinator Buckeye fans should take notice

    Michigan offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier (left) and coach Brady Hoke share a smile after a news conference in Ann Arbor, Mich., Jan. 10.Credit: Courtesy of MCTUnder coach Urban Meyer, the Ohio State football team has yet to lose to Michigan, but a recent big-time move on the Wolverines’ coaching staff could inflict some uneasiness into Buckeye fans.Offensive coordinator Al Borges, the same coach who helped the Michigan offense put up 41 points against Ohio State in November, was out of a job Wednesday morning. By nightfall, however, his replacement was already announced.That replacement is former Alabama offensive coordinator, Doug Nussmeier, who will become one of the highest-paid coordinators in college football.While the details of his hiring are still a bit cloudy, rumors are swirling that Alabama head coach Nick Saban was pushing out Nussmeier in order to bring in his new buddy, Lane Kiffin, to take the reigns of the Alabama offense.In any case, this somewhat-shocking hire by the Wolverines should motivate OSU players and fans.Even with the aforementioned Borges at the helm, the Wolverine offense torched the Buckeyes’ defense and was even a single play away from winning The Game. But under control of Nussmeier and a revamped pro-style offense more suitable to Michigan’s personnel coming along with him, the Michigan offense could certainly take leaps and bounds forward.If OSU wants to continue its dominance against Michigan, the defense will have to at least match the improvement of the Michigan offense.In hiring Nussmeier, Michigan might have started a domino effect that will definitely have an impact in Columbus. Should Borges have stayed, defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Luke Fickell’s job might have been safe. Now, however, Michigan has challenged OSU even further to resurrect the formerly fantastic “Silver Bullet” defense.If the Buckeyes stand pat, meaning Fickell is retained and the entire defensive outfit continues its less-than-stellar production, OSU will certainly have taken a step backward while Michigan has taken a step forward. That’s something no one involved with OSU football would be content seeing.Be it the firing of Fickell, a change in scheme, or just an overall closer examination of certain players, something needs to change defensively for OSU. Michigan made its move and is challenging the Buckeyes to answer with a counterattack.If the Buckeyes don’t take measures to improve their defense, a loss to Michigan next season in Columbus will be no one’s fault but their own.A word to athletic director Gene Smith and Meyer, in this century-long chess match between OSU and Michigan: it’s your move. read more
