The boxship departed DP World Southampton on 27 June carrying British exports on her return journey home, via France, Germany, The Netherlands and Singapore. The 23,820 TEU HMM Oslo, the biggest vessel ever to call at DP World Southampton, arrived at the port in the early hours of 26 June at the end of her maiden voyage to the UK. “The HMM Oslo joins around 200 other container ships that have called at DP World Southampton during the lockdown since March, keeping essential food, fuel and medicines flowing to sustain the country.” Image Courtesy: DP World Southampton/Andrew McAlpine “With two deep water ports, DP World in the UK can accommodate the world’s biggest ships both at DP World Southampton and at DP World London Gateway,” Ernst Schulze, UK Chief Executive Officer, DP World, commented. Last week her sister ship, the HMM Algeciras, docked at DP World’s sister port London Gateway in Essex. The capacities of the two variants are slightly different, with 23,964 TEU for the DSME ships (HMM Algeciras class), and 23,820 TEU for the Samsung ships (HMM Oslo class). The HMM Oslo was built by SHI and the HMM Algeciras by DSME — therefore, the Algeciras is slightly larger. These vessels are part of a series of twelve HMM Megamax-24 vessels ordered in 2018 from Daewoo Shipbuilding Marine and Engineering (DSME), and Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI). “The deployment of these Megamax-24 vessels is a major milestone for HMM, and we are delighted that the first of these to call at Southampton, the HMM Oslo, has arrived this week (26 June),” Peter Livey, Managing Director (Gt. Britain) for HMM, said. Image Courtesy: DP World Southampton / Andrew Sassoli-Walker Belonging to a new series of Megamax-24 containerships, the eco-friendly HMM Oslo features a length of 399.9 metres and a width of 61.5 metres. She is longer than London’s The Shard, one of the highest buildings in Europe. “Our ongoing investment and innovation mean that we are well-placed to support an economic recovery which is not just strong but also green and sustainable,” Schulze added. HMM Oslo arrived at Southampton from South Korea,having called at ports in China, Singapore and Rotterdam in the Netherlands. “These Megamax-24 ships are ground-breaking, not just in their size, but in world leading environmental performance too. Their optimised hull design and highly energy-efficient engines make a significant leap forward in reducing CO2 and other emissions. It’s all part of our long-term goal to achieve Net Zero carbon emissions across our container fleet by 2050.”
Courier Mail (Aust) 19 Sep 2012The alcohol industry is grooming children to drink by marketing booze-flavoured chips, chocolates, lip gloss and biscuits. The nation’s peak medical organisation, the Australian Medical Association, wants new laws to restrict alcohol advertising aimed at young people after exposing the shocking tactics. A 60 page report by the AMA, obtained by News Limited, uncovers how the alcohol industry is using online games that feature alcohol brands, secret parties with online invitations and Facebook to market alcohol to young people.The report is to be released at a conference in Canberra on Wednesday amid a continuing national debate about alcohol and violence spearheaded by News Ltd’s Real Heroes Walk Away campaign. The AMA report says alcohol-sponsored mobile phone apps that provide cocktail recipes, conversation topics or use geolocation technology to recommend nearby bars and clubs are aimed at the young.The industry has also encouraged children to develop a taste for alcohol by marketing Tim Tams flavoured with Tia Maria, chocolates flavoured with Malibu, vodka flavoured lip gloss and fudge and potato chips flavoured with Jim Beam whisky, the report says.http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/national/alcohol-industry-grooming-children-to-drink-by-marketing-booze-flavoured-snacks-ama-claims/story-fncyva0b-1226476825309
Telegraph (Aust) 3 Feb 2013A growing number of men are tackling fatherhood on their own, turning to overseas surrogates to create their “dream” families.Support group Surrogacy Australia said single men were longing to be dads and were not deterred by a commercial surrogacy ban brought in during 2010 to curb the exploitation of poor women.Jake Docker, 27, last week brought home his three-week-old twin daughters Pippa and Millie, born to an Indian surrogate on January 8.“I just wanted to be a dad as long as I could remember,” the public servant from Petersham said. Mr Docker said he had not broken the law because he began the process before the state ban on commercial surrogacy came into effect.“It was now or never, go it alone or don’t do it at all, so I only just scraped in,” he said.Mr Docker, who is gay, said there was no other way for him to pursue fatherhood in Australia.http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/men-want-kids-on-their-own/story-e6freuy9-1226567324733

The Uruguayan has had a tumultuous Anfield career and returned from a 10-game ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic with two goals against Sunderland on Sunday. Suarez was linked with a move to Real Madrid early in the transfer window and Arsenal lodged a bid of £40,000,001 for the 26-year-old after it was suggested that would trigger a release clause. Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has admitted he feared Luis Suarez would leave the club this summer. Press Association The striker made no secret of his desire to leave Anfield but is now back in the fold and Gerrard is delighted that all the speculation over his future has ended. He told national newspapers: “Every day in the summer. When you have a player as good as Luis Suarez, you know that the big clubs are going to want him. “I was waking up every morning, hoping that nothing would happen and that he would still be here. “Nobody tried harder than me to make him stay and he knows exactly what I think of him. I knew if we could keep him here, the better our chances would be. “He is a special type of footballer and he gives us something different. When the club got the message to him that they were not going to sell him, he got his head down and has worked hard. He has never given us a moment’s problem. “I think it is a credit to Luis for the way he has come back. A lot of players who have been in his position might have come back and spat the dummy out, not trying for the team. But he is not that type of guy. “He realised that the club wanted to keep him and he has respected their decision. He is here now and he wants to stay. He wants to achieve something this season and he looks as hungry as he has ever done.”
Gov. Ron DeSantis on Saturday discussed Florida’s efforts to battle the coronavirus at a hair salon in Orlando.“As of last night, Florida had 581 COVID patients in the ICU statewide,” he said. “That’s the lowest we’ve had in a month, and for a state of almost 22 million people, that’s obviously a very, very small number of patients.”DeSantis also talked about the increase of testing availability in the state.“We’ve tested almost 420,000 people now in the state of Florida,” he said. “We have the seven drive-thru sites that have been operating for a while, including the one in the Orange County Convention Center, but we’re adding Pensacola, which had a soft open yesterday, large open today.”Today I’m in Orlando at OhSoooJazzy Hair Salon for a roundtable with small business owners and community leaders, including @OCFLMayor Jerry Demings. Watch live: https://t.co/ug1Qj109b3— Ron DeSantis (@GovRonDeSantis) May 2, 2020 He continued, We’re adding Sarasota/Bradenton drive-thru site, Naples/Fort Myers drive-thru site, and then a hybrid drive-thru and walk-up site at the Miami Beach Convention Center. So you’re actually going to have more opportunities if you want to test, because we just feel — if you’re putting people back to work and maybe a worker has some symptoms, they’re hopefully in these communities — an easy way to do it.”DeSantis spoke with hair stylists at the OhSoooJazzy Hair Salon in Orlando, telling them that haircuts and manicures could soon return if barber shops and salons use safety measures.Among the ideas to make that happen are barbers and clients wearing gloves and masks, closing waiting areas, and having clients stay in their cars until they receive a text message to come in.“I am confident that it’s not just a matter of ‘if,’ (it’s) just a matter of ‘when,’ but we’ve got to make sure it is safe and sound,” said DeSantis.He did not indicate whether salons would be allowed to reopen everywhere in Florida or if they would be limited to areas outside the virus’ epicenter of Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties, which makes up about 60 percent of the state’s cases and deaths.DeSantis announced last week that the state will reopen Monday, May 4, with the exception of heavily-hit Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties.At least 1,364 Florida residents have died from COVID-19, as of Saturday.Palm Beach County: 3,080 cases-195 deaths-Men: 1,516, Women: 1,502-474 hospitalizationsBroward County: 5,257 cases-204 deaths-Men: 2,605, Women: 2,522-1,044 hospitalizationsMiami-Dade County: 12,632 cases-367 deaths-Men: 6,506, Women: 5,971-1,651 hospitalizations
HASHIM Amla continued his sparkling form as Kings XI Punjab secured a dominant 26-run win over the IPL’s bottom team Gujarat Lions.South African Amla scored a brilliant unbeaten century against Mumbai Indians in defeat last time out but an impressive knock of 65 contributed to a winning effort in Rajkot. His game was marred somewhat by picking up a hamstring injury in the field.Axar Patel’s lower-order 34 off 17 boosted Kings XI to 188-7 before his left-arm spin snared two crucial wickets as the Lions’ batting order could not offer suitable assistance for the likes of Suresh Raina (32) and Dinesh Karthik (58 not out).Both sides came into the game with four points, but Kings XI’s first victory in five games moves them up to fourth in the table.The Lions won the toss and invited their visitors to bat, a move that looked to have paid off when Manan Vohra (2) edged behind, but Shaun Marsh (30) and Amla added 70 for the second wicket to put Kings XI on top.Having played the aggressor, Amla reverted to type when Glenn Maxwell joined him at the crease, but the pair were dismissed in the space of three balls as momentum swung back the way of Gujarat – captain Maxwell perhaps guilty of overconfidence when trapped lbw to Ravindra Jadeja on the reverse sweep for 31.Axar helped Kings XI overcome that wobble, however, blasting Dwayne Smith for 16 runs off three balls before holing out to mid-off.Gujarat were well on the back foot, though, and they were well behind the eight ball once Brendon McCullum (6) and Aaron Finch (13) were dismissed in the powerplay.Finch and Raina’s 40-run union was the Lions best partnership, summing up the regular intervals at which wickets fell, with Karthik rapidly running out of suitable partners to secure a fifth Gujarat defeat in seven games.(Omnisport)
