Advance International Transport co-ordinates multi-port freight shipment for Mitsubishi

first_imgThe multi-port transit involved a freight consignment leaving Busan, Korea onboard Scanscot Shipping’s multipurpose ro-ro carrier Scan Brasil; before she collected the second part of the consignment from Kobe, Japan. The consolidated shipments were then carried to Santos, Brazil. The consignments, amounting to over 1,200 cu m, included a compressor and lube oil motor, spare rotor and cooler equipment in over 100 packages and one container. The total weight of the shipment came to some over 2,200 tonnes. Advance International President & CEO, Jawad Kamel says: “This was a straightforward collection of vital goods for Brazilian petroleum and petrochemical refineries but no less complex and well-planned for all that. The need to collect some of the equipment in Korea and then Japan created no headaches for our planners and went off as smoothly as we anticipated.” Kamel is certain that Advance International Transport has a important role to play in that Brazil’s economic and business development. He adds: “Our project freight forwarding services support companies that are active in the oil and gas industry worldwide. This is just as important to Brazil as any of the oil and gas producing countries we serve. By delivering a first rate service we help manufacturers such as Mitsubishi provide the technology and know-how the sector needs.last_img read more

Ford, Abrams shed light on ‘The Force Awakens’ at Comic-Con

(Photo by Richard Shotwell/Invision/AP) Ford, making his first public appearance since his plane crash in March left him hospitalized and injured, assured the audience and host Chris Hardwick that he was fine. The already excitable crowd exploded when Ford, the last to be introduced, walked out.Seated next to Hamill, the gruff Ford was not hesitant to talk about his reluctance to revisit the world of “Star Wars” and the character of Han Solo.“It should have felt ridiculous, it was 30 years ago,” Ford said. “I sort of grew up.”He never thought that he’d do another film after the original trilogy.“I was very gratified when I read the script because I read something that I thought was really remarkable, really well-written and with some very intriguing developments,” Ford said. “I was delighted to be involved and I was very happy to be part of the story and the cast again.”“The Force Awakens,” which hits theaters on Dec. 18, picks up about 30 years after the events of “Return of the Jedi.”Before fans were treated to the “Star Wars” veterans, they were introduced to the newcomers on the light side of the force and, for the first time, those on the dark side.Adam Driver, Gwendoline Christie and Domhnall Gleeson were on hand representing the bad guys. As the mysterious three-pronged lightsaber-wielding Kylo Ren, Driver tried to skirt any questions about his character.When pressed, he talked vaguely about the philosophy of evil.“We didn’t really have a lot of conversations about bad or evil when we were shooting it,” said Driver. “It was more the difference between being bad and being right.”Gleeson, whose character’s name was revealed to be General Hux, didn’t hesitate to say that he was evil. While talking about getting the role, Gleeson accidentally “spoiled” the name of his command station, much to the dismay of Abrams.It’s “Starkiller Base.” SAN DIEGO | The cast and filmmakers of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” debuted a new behind-the-scenes reel and teased some new information at Comic-Con about the highly secretive film to a rapturous Hall H audience.Filmmaker J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy were eventually joined on stage Friday by “Star Wars” veterans and “Force Awakens” stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher. Christie, who plays the chrome stormtrooper Captain Phasma, talked about how neat it was to be playing a character in full costume who is “not about the way she looks in the flesh.”Representing the light side of the force were Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac, who had spoken previously about their roles at the annual Star Wars Celebration event in Anaheim.Though not much else was gleaned about Ridley’s scavenger Rey, Boyega’s stormtrooper Finn or Isaac’s X-Wing pilot Poe Dameron, all offered anecdotes about their time on set.To prepare for his role, Isaac asked Ford for some advice about piloting in “Star Wars.”Ford just said, “It’s fake.”There was no new footage to be seen. Abrams is currently editing the film and has a cut, but wants to keep tweaking to make it the film “it wants to be.” He also said another trailer will come out in the fall.But Abrams did debut a behind-the-scenes reel that was made available online shortly after the panel concluded.In addition to interviews with Hamill, Ridley and others, it focused on the practical effects used in the film — a recurring theme in all of Abrams’ comments about the film, which hopes to re-create the aesthetic of the original trilogy.“Everything’s changed but nothing’s changed,” said Hamill in the clip. “That’s the way you want it to be.”Not to be outdone, Abrams and Kennedy, who had already treated the ravenous Hall H fans to coffee and doughnuts before the panel started, announced that there was one more surprise: An imminent “Star Wars” concert at an adjacent stage. All 6,500 Hall H attendees were invited.And their escorts?Stormtroopers, of course.last_img read more

Minister McHugh travels with Tory Islanders on research mission for new ferry

first_imgMinister Joe McHugh has hosted a fact-finding mission for Oileán Thorai islanders as part of consultations on securing a new ferry for the island.Mr McHugh, Minister for the Irish language, Gaeltacht and the Islands, travelled to Doolin in Co. Clare with a group of islanders to learn about their transport methods.Looking back on the trip, Minister McHugh said: “I want to thank the members of Comharchumann Oileán Thorai for making the long journey south to allow me to host this consultation. “Our discussions with ferry owners in Doolin, Co Clare has enabled us to learn more about sourcing a new boat for Oileán Thorai and the process that other operators have gone through to source new boats and consider designs.”Joe McHugh, Minister for the Irish language, Gaeltacht and the IslandsMinister McHugh, Government Chief Whip, was joined in Doolin by manager of the Comharchumman Marjorie Uí Chearbhaill and a number of other members along with Pól Ó Gallchóir, chairman of Foras na Gaeilge and former chief executive of TG4.“This consultation was not only a chance to see first-hand the different modern boats that are operating from and to other islands along the western seaboard but more importantly it gives us a chance to learn more about the process involved in bringing one of these ferries into service,” Mr McHugh said.“We want to learn about how the boat owners sourced and secured these boats and to hear what advice they might like to offer the islanders on boat design and style.” Mr McHugh added: “Along with the initiatives that we are taking here with the ferry services earlier this summer my Department secured grant funding of €359,000 for works on the islands off Donegal.“We are doing works on the Lighthouse Road on Arranmore; we have plans progressing for new cranes on Oileán Thorai and at Machaire Rabhartaigh, a new cargo operation, ongoing discussions on extending helicopter services and plans to publish a revised tender for a longer-term fast ferry.“All of this is in the context of this Government’s commitment to secure a new passenger ferry boat for Oileán Thorai as pledged in the National Development Plan.“I look forward to continuing to work with the Islanders of Oileán Thorai and all the islands in order to put their interests at the heart of the decisions that are made in the Department on transport, the language, connectivity, education, the environment.“Our islands are truly at the heart of what is best loved and admired about Irish culture and these kind of investments demonstrate how highly we value their communities.” Minister McHugh travels with Tory Islanders on research mission for new ferry was last modified: September 28th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Comharchumann Oileán ThoraiMinister Joe McHughOileán ThoraiTory Islandlast_img read more

Slice potatoes to 1/8″ thickness – A mandolin works great for this. No need to peel the potatoes. The skins are so thin you won’t even notice them. Bake bacon on a sheetpan in oven until very well cooked and crispy, flipping half way through, about 20 minutes total. Move bacon to a paper towel-lined plate and let cool. Crumble into small pieces and set aside. While bacon cools, finely chop chives. Melt butter stick of butter and add it to the bread crumbs. Stir in 1/3 of the bacon bits and all of the chives. Whisk together half & half, Dijon mustard, nutmeg and salt and pepper to taste. Divide the cheese into 12 pieces. Layer the bottom of each ramekin with several potato slices. Sprinkle with some bacon and add a piece of cheese. Layer again and repeat so that there are 3 layers of cheese, bacon and potatoes per ramekin, finishing with remaining potato slices. The potato layers should be piled above the lip of the ramekin. Carefully pour half & half mixture into ramekins until half an inch from the top. Dot the tops of the ramekins with reserved tablespoon of butter. Sprinkle on bread crumb mixture. Bake for 45 minutes on a sheet pan until crispy and brown. Let cool slightly before serving.
