first_img December 8, 2016 The Royal Australian Navy’s mine warfare and clearance diving task group spent two weeks testing its mine warfare capabilities during the Australian Navy’s large-scale exercise Ocean Raider.During the drills, the group coordinated the location and disposal of simulated sea mines from Broken Bay, New South Wales, and in Cockburn Sound, Western Australia.The headquarters team used minehunters, HMA Ships Gascoyne and Huon, and specialised diving unit clearance diving team four to achieve the mission.Their ability to clear and secure access points allowed notional waiting forces to enter by sea and evacuate citizens affected by the conflict.Director of the maritime evaluation team, Commander Max Muller, said the test demonstrated the headquarters and its forces could carry out complex maritime advance force operations in a real time environment.“Live exercise training allows the Navy to test combat effectiveness in a warfighting environment,” Commander Muller said.“This certification confirms Navy’s capability to shape the area of operations and enable successful amphibious operations.”Held from November 14 to December 4, Ocean Raider, involved warships, submarines, aircraft and more than 1,500 Defence personnel, is designed to develop and certify fleets units in task-group-level joint sea combat and is held in locations around Australia.

first_imgAMF Bakery Systems-owned AMF Den Boer has launched an emission-free hydrogen tunnel oven.Its Multibake Vita Tunnel Oven will help industrial bakers reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 99.9% within the baking process, said the company.AMF has described it as “the world’s first emission-free, hydrogen fuelled tunnel oven”.The oven burns are activated using green hydrogen, also known as clean hydrogen, a CO2-neutral fuel that is produced from a renewable source.“We will continue to introduce breakthrough innovations like the Multibake Vita Tunnel Oven to help our bakery and food producing customers – both large and small – meet sustainability objectives, and bake the best breads or pizzas,” said Fabiano Malara, vice president of EMEA/AP for AMF.Although commercial ovens typically use natural gas as the resource for heating, the new patent-pending technology will virtually eliminate CO2 emissions from the oven while reducing the cost of utilities, said the firm.“We can even retro-fit this technology into existing ovens that are already in the field. We are confident many food producers will make the upgrade, as we see growing urgency for sustainability measures in baking,” added Remco Bijkerk, executive product manager at AMF Den Boer.last_img read more

first_img Free legal research available Visit floridabar.org to access fastcase online services Fastcase, the Bar-approved free legal research service for its members, is now up and running.The service, available through the Bar’s Web site at www.floridabar.org, went online as the Bar’s Annual Meeting opened June 22 in Orlando. The Bar had hoped to provide the program earlier in the month, but problems with the Bar’s Internet service forced a delay of several days.Fastcase President Phil Rosenthal manned a booth at the Annual Meeting explaining the service to Bar members, and said he found a receptive audience.“People are coming up and saying they just started their practice and they’re so relieved they have this free member benefit,” he said.Approved by an enthusiastic Board of Governors earlier this year, the five-year contract provides free access to most state and federal resources pertaining to Florida to all Bar members. For an additional $195 annually, Bar members can buy access to fastcase’s complete national law database, covering all 50 states and all federal courts. That service typically sells for $995 annually.“It’s really a great thing. It’s one of the best things that has happened to the Bar,” said Frank Walker, a member of the Board of Governors and chair of the Member Benefits Committee, when the panel met at the Annual Meeting.Immediate past Bar President Kelly Overstreet Johnson touted the program as a major accomplishment for the past year in her farewell address during the convention’s General Assembly.To underscore the committee’s support for the program and belief in its importance for Bar members, Walker suggested, and the committee agreed, to monitor its operation at every committee meeting during the coming year. That will enable members to evaluate the service’s operations. To assist in that effort, members also said they would ask fastcase to keep a log of calls from Bar members.Committee member Ike Iaconis, who worked extensively to bring the research benefit to the Bar, said he had a chance to try the service before the Annual Meeting. He said fastcase is providing a good basic service, but it won’t have all the bells and whistles of some expensive online legal research services.“It’s working; it’s working well. There is some fine-tuning that has been suggested,” he said. “If you try it, you’re going to really like it. It’s not a Cadillac; it’s a Chevrolet.”Fastcase, however, does provide dual column printing of opinions, Iaconis said, and its presentation on the Internet is “clear as a whistle.”Under the contract with the Bar, fastcase is providing at no cost to members Florida Supreme Court decisions since 1950, and all district court of appeal opinions since the inception of the DCAs. Also included will be all U.S. Supreme Court decisions, opinions from the Fifth and 11th U.S. circuit courts of appeal, the Florida Administrative Code, Florida Statutes, and the Florida Constitution.Access is through the Bar’s Web site at www.floridabar.org. A button on the right side of the screen will take members to a fastcase log-in page. (Bar members log-in name is their attorney number, while the password is the same as they have set up for the Bar’s storefront operations that allow members to pay dues or sign up for CLE courses online. There will be a link for members if they have not previously signed up and created a password.)Once signed in, members will go to a fastcase page that allows them to begin a search. That page has tips for conducting an efficient search and instructions, such as searching for opinions or subjects during a specific time frame. A name or subject can be typed in the search box, and all related cases, statutes, and cites will be returned.Those using the free service will automatically have their searches limited to the state and federal courts and sources listed above. Those who sign up for the $195 national service will have the option of selecting a national search or Florida-related search.“The most significant comment you’ll hear is people aren’t believing it. People don’t believe they have this opportunity,” Iaconis said. He added some people have thought the service would be free for a few weeks or months and then they would have to pay, and were happy to learn the Florida service is free for as long as they want to use it.“It’s happening; it’s terrific,” he said. “People are excited.”Iaconis said there is a link to fastcase’s Web site from the search page, and members can find a number for a help desk there. He reported that he called late in the evening and found the desk both manned and helpful. July 15, 2005 Regular News Free legal research availablelast_img read more

first_imgPlace made in schoolsHe also said places could be made in schools across the nation for Dominican children to continue their education. “In situations like these, whatever we have available to us, we the people have always been generous, are, and willing, to share…..for the next six months, we will open our doors, our homes, our pots and I daresay out schools to the people of the Commonwealth of Dominica.” Must identify friends/family in TTThe PM said those Dominicans taking up the offer must be able to clearly identify friends or family in TT who will be able to accommodate them. He stressed that Dominicans who choose to come to the country, will not be classified as refugees.“A house is never too small for a family and I think that is what’s happening here.”Rowley said while he has not been able to speak directly with Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit of Dominica, he has been in touch with the secretariat of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). He added that TT has already provided a helicopter and coast guard vessel to assist relief efforts in Dominica, however he said TT is not in a position to contribute financially.Concerning education, Education Minister Anthony Garcia said spaces will be made available to students who were displaced in Dominica.“When Grenada was hit by Ivan, Trinidad and Tobago Government made available school spaces to a number of students. It is something I have experienced because at that time I was a principle of a secondary school. Although space would be made available, this must be done in consultation of the Ministry of National Security which has responsibility for the Immigration Department so we want to make sure everything is done properly. There are certain parameters that we must work within,” he said.Hurricane Maria slammed into Dominica earlier this week , killing at least 15 people.Skerrit, in an interview with ABS television in neighboring Antigua and Barbuda on Thursday issued an urgent appeal, saying Dominica needs all the help it can get. Trinidad and Tobago’s Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley says his administration will waive immigration requirements for residents of the hurricane ravaged island of Dominica for a period of six months while the CARICOM member state rebuilds.Rowley made the announcement on Thursday during a post cabinet press briefing.last_img read more

first_imgAnd that’s assuming Verlander needs just two weeks off before he resumes throwing. Baker said the team will reevaluate the pitcher after that time. “We don’t know,” Baker said as he responded to a question about whether Verlander will pitch again this season. He added the injury was a “shock” to everyone.Astros manager Dusty Baker discusses Justin Verlander’s elbow injury: pic.twitter.com/Rmq5GiEhNW— Alyson Footer (@alysonfooter) July 26, 2020Verlander denied an earlier report by the Houston Chronicle, which cited two sources with knowledge of the situation, that he would miss the remainder of the season.The report that I’m currently missing the rest of the season is not accurate. There is a forearm strain… I’m hopeful that with some rest it will heal and I’ll be able to return soon. Thank you for all the well wishes. 🙏🏻— Justin Verlander (@JustinVerlander) July 26, 2020Baker said the strain occurred as Verlander pitched in the Astros’ 8-2 victory over the Mariners; the manager also said that Verlander reported he felt “fine” but also that his arm was “tender.” Verlander threw 73 pitches (48 strikes) over six innings. He underwent an MRI exam Saturday, Baker said, per the Chronicle.MORE: A’s troll Astros with cutout of mascot in trash canVerlander underwent surgery in March to repair a groin injury but was deemed healthy for summer camp.The Astros were the heavy preseason favorites to win the AL West and were expected to ride Verlander deep into the playoffs. The postseason plan is now in jeopardy, but the expanded playoff field for 2020 means Houston should still get there. For the short term, here’s what the club can do to stay on track.Justin Verlander injury: How the Astros can compensateEnsure that Lance McCullers Jr. and Zack Greinke can hold up. McCullers is coming off Tommy John surgery and Greinke displayed lower-than-normal velocity in his first start, which lasted just 3 1/3 innings. They each move up a spot in the rotation with Verlander out. Even though the season is just 60 games, Houston needs to take a longer view and keep those two ready to handle heavier loads in October.Lean on the back of the rotation to pick up the slack. The fourth and fifth starters coming into the season were Josh James and Framber Valdez. Jose Urquidy (illness) is not close to ready. James and Valdez pitched well as rookies in 2018 but regressed in 2019. If they can regularly pitch deep into games now, then the Astros might not skip a beat.  Justin Verlander’s 2020 season may be finished after one start.The Astros’ ace will be out for “a couple weeks” because of a forearm strain after pitching in Friday’s opener, manager Dusty Baker told reporters Sunday. With the shortened regular season lasting just nine more weeks through Sept. 27, a shutdown followed by rehab might leave little time for Verlander to be ready to pitch in games later in the season. Replace Verlander’s spot with openers and bullpen games. Houston put 15 pitchers on its 30-man Opening Day roster and can shuttle in other pitchers from its alternate training site. It figures to be at 13 pitchers once rosters are trimmed to 26 in late August. Byran Abreu, Cristian Javier and Brandon Bailey are among the active pitchers who could move into a “bulk” role initially. Austin Pruitt, who handled the role while pitching for the Rays, could take over after he comes off the injured list. Brad Peacock would be another candidate but he’s on the IL with shoulder soreness.Get Forrest Whitley up to speed. The fireballing prospect has been brought along slowly in camp as he makes his way back from the shoulder fatigue that helped to ruin his 2019 minor league season. He still averaged 12.97 strikeouts per nine innings last year, which shows how much of a weapon he can be if he’s right.Trade for a pitcher. This will be difficult as teams deal with roster uncertainty because of COVID-19 testing. But if a team falls out of the race early, then it might be able to spare an arm before the Aug. 31 deadline. A more likely scenario is for the Astros to sign a free agent, get him to their alternate site and then get him ready for regular work.last_img read more
