ABS Joins LNG Coalition

first_imgzoom Houston-headquartered classification society ABS has joined the SEA\LNG coalition whose objective is to accelerate the widespread adoption of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel.SEA\LNG brings together players from across the supply chain, including shipping companies, classification societies, ports, LNG suppliers, downstream companies, infrastructure providers and original equipment manufacturers to address market barriers and transform the use of LNG as a marine fuel.“We bring to this organization more than 150 years of experience and a strong commitment to helping create a safer and more sustainable shipping industry. As a technology and innovation leader, ABS understands future energy demands and the environmental drivers of today’s dynamic markets and takes a forward-looking approach to helping balance those challenges with operational safety and performance needs,” said ABS Chairman, President and CEO Christopher J. Wiernicki. ABS classed the world’s first LNG carrier conversion, the Methane Pioneer, in 1959 as well as the first newbuild LNG carrier, Methane Princess, in 1964.The company also launched its Global Gas Solutions team in 2013 to support industry in developing gas-related projects.In June 2016, ABS joined forces with Arista Shipping, Deltamarin, Technigaz (GTT) and Wärtsila in the ‘Project Forward’ program to develop a dry bulk carrier concept that employs LNG as fuel.“ABS brings a wealth of industry expertise and perspectives that will greatly benefit SEA\LNG’s work to accelerate the widespread adoption of LNG as a marine fuel and promote its benefits as a clean, safe, practical and economically viable fuel for the shipping industry,” SEA\LNG Chairman Peter Keller said.last_img read more

The As Tailspin Might Not Matter Once The Playoffs Start

The Oakland Athletics, for weeks now, have been terrible. They’ve gone 27-37 in the season’s second half, with a 12-17 record in August and an even uglier 8-15 mark in September. Yet thanks largely to some atrocious play by their AL West rivals in Seattle, the A’s are about to clinch their third straight playoff berth anyway.Still, few people seem to be taking Oakland seriously as a World Series contender. Some of that disrespect comes from simple math: By having to play an additional one-game playoff just to get to the American League Division Series, the A’s face a tougher climb than MLB’s six division winners. But much of the disdain for Oakland’s chances stems from an overemphasis on momentum. If the A’s have stunk up the joint for most of August and September, why should anyone believe October will be any different?Because there’s no evidence to suggest that how a team plays heading into the postseason has any correlation with how it fares in the postseason. That’s why.Last week, we looked at teams’ regular-season road records and whether those can predict playoff success (the answer was yes, they do). Here, we used the same methodology, looking at every playoff game from 1969 through 2013 to see whether we could find a predictive link between late-season performance and playoff success.In the end, we found that full-season winning percentages were a significant predictor of postseason outcomes. But the degree to which a team was hot after June, July or August was not statistically significant when it came to forecasting playoff proficiency.Now that doesn’t necessarily prove definitively that there’s nothing to the momentum theory. As Bill James reminds us, an absence of evidence isn’t conclusive proof by itself, and it’s possible that further research using a different approach could yield different results.Still, given the hot-or-not narratives that pop up every October, and the lack of evidence to support the momentum theory, it’s probably time to take the A’s a bit more seriously as contenders. Jay Jaffe (at Baseball Prospectus) and Dave Cameron (for Fox Sports) both tested the theory by looking at playoff results from 1995 on and couldn’t find any statistically significant correlation either.Yes, the A’s will probably have to get past a stingy Kansas City Royals squad, one that’s excelled at pitching and defense all year, just to crack the ALDS. But with a pitching staff bolstered by the acquisitions of Jon Lester and Jeff Samardzija, and an offense that has struggled in the second half but looked strong in the first half, the A’s have the talent to compete for a title in a playoff field that lacks a clear favorite.As sharply as their luck turned down the stretch, it could just as easily turn for the better — starting now.CORRECTION (Sept. 26, 11:57 a.m.): A previous version of this article incorrectly said the Oakland Athletics have gone 27-39 in the season’s second half and had a 8-14 mark in September. They have gone 27-37 in the second half and 8-15 in September. read more

New Roma stadium gets the green light

first_imgRoma have finally been given the green light to start work on their new stadium project, according to the Stadio della Roma’s official Twitter account.According to Football Italia, there were confirmed reports on Tuesday that the Polytechnic University of Turin’s report on the proposed plans were positive.“The Stadio della Roma will go ahead and the proponents, if they want, can break ground as early as this year,” Rome mayor Virgina Raggi said after her presentation of the report.“We’re not against works or big works, the stadium being one of them, but rather we’re in favour of useful works that bring benefits to the city and its citizens, as in this case where a part of the city will be upgraded.The Politecnico di Torino’s independent technical report is positive: #StadiodellaRoma will be built.#LoStadioSiFa— Stadio della Roma (@StadiodellaRoma) February 5, 2019“The reduction in size won’t affect mobility. The stadium project confirms the choice of sustainable mobility is the right path to take.”Chris Smalling open to a permanent AS Roma deal Andrew Smyth – September 6, 2019 Chris Smalling can “definitely see a longer-term future” for himself at AS Roma should things work out on his loan spell from Manchester United.The project was initially given the all-clear at the end of 2017, but it was then held up by the arrest of nine people linked to the arena’s construction, among them contractor Luca Parnasi.Italy’s Deputy PM Matteo Salvini has welcomed news of Roma’s new stadium project going through. “It’s good news for Rome and all of Italian sport.”“It’s good news for Rome and all of Italian sport,” the interior minister and Milan fan told Agenzia Dire.“There’s absolutely a need for new, modern and safe stadia. Finally, a rundown area of the city will come back to life.”STADIO DELLA ROMA | 🏟️ | Councillor: ‘Everyone has expressed positive opinions on the project’➡️— AS Roma English (@ASRomaEN) November 24, 2017last_img read more
