ExxonMobils Hebron platform pumps first oil off Newfoundland and Labrador

first_imgST. JOHN’S, N.L. – First oil has been pumped at the $14-billion Hebron offshore oil platform off Newfoundland and Labrador, officials with ExxonMobil Canada announced Tuesday.The company said the platform extracted its first oil on Monday at the Hebron field in the Jeanne d’Arc Basin, located 350 kilometres southeast of St. John’s.“Our goal since the Hebron project was announced in 2008 was to safely achieve first oil in 2017,” company president Carman Mullins said.“Today we delivered on our commitment. Hebron is an engineering and construction marvel and thousands of Newfoundlanders and Labradorians can proudly say they helped design and build the platform.”Built at Bull Arm, the massive gravity-based platform is 230 metres high and weighs 750,000 tonnes. The structure was towed to the drilling site in early June and has begun production ahead of schedule.The Hebron oil field was discovered in 1980, and it’s estimated it will produce more than 700-million barrels of oil throughout the lifespan of the project.At peak rates the platform is expected to produce up to 150,000 barrels of oil per day and has a storage capacity of 1.2 million barrels of oil.During its production phase, Hebron is expected to generate millions in annual royalties and taxes for the cash-strapped province. It’s also expected to provide long-term employment for over 600 workers.The governing Liberals have said the project will generate more than $10 billion in royalties and benefits over the next 20 years — less than half the estimated $23 billion once hailed by the former Tory government.Natural Resources Minister Siobhan Coady said it was a “great day for the province” to have its second offshore oil project in operation in addition to Hibernia.In addition to ExxonMobil Canada, project partners include Chevron Canada, Suncor Energy, Statoil Canada and provincial Crown corporation Nalcor Energy with a 4.9 per cent equity stake.last_img read more

Bombardier sues Mitsubishi over alleged theft of aircraft trade secrets

MONTREAL — Bombardier is suing Mitsubishi Aircraft in the United States over alleged trade secret misappropriation.The Quebec aerospace company alleges some of its own former employees passed on documents containing trade secrets to Mitsubishi before going to work for the company.The 92-page legal complaint filed in a Seattle court on Friday also targets Aerospace Testing Engineering & Certification (AeroTEC), which supports the Japanese multinational in the development of its MRJ airline, as well as several ex-Bombardier employees.None of the allegations contained in the court documents have been proven in court.A Mitsubishi spokesman says the allegations are unfounded and the company says it will prove so in court.AeroTEC did not respond to a request for comment on Sunday.Bombardier alleges Mitsubishi Aircraft and AeroTEC recruited no less than 92 of its former employees from both Canada and the United States.The former workers named in the lawsuit allegedly forwarded documents regarding the certification process to Transport Canada and its American counterpart, the Federal Aviation Administration.“The process is incredibly costly, time-consuming, and complex — even for the most experienced of aircraft manufacturers who have gone through that process and developed trade secrets to face it more efficiently,” the document reads.This process is essential to the process of ensuring newly developed planes are given permission to fly.Bombardier recently went through the process during the development of the CSeries program, which was plagued by delays and cost overruns. The aircraft was later rebranded A220 after Airbus took a majority stake in the program.“Bombardier has spent about a decade and several billion dollars bringing the CSeries from concept to realization and this is not abnormal for an airplane that has been imagined from the drawing board,” the court documents state.Bombardier alleges that Mitsubishi specifically recruited employees who had experience with the certification process and broke the law when it used confidential documents obtained from these employees in order to accelerate the timelines for its own MRJ airline.The MRJ, which can transport up to 90 passengers, is scheduled to enter service in 2020, much later than the original 2013 date.In one case cited in the court documents, one of Bombardier’s ex-workers allegedly used a personal Yahoo email to transfer “very sensitive” and “secret” information concerning the Global 7000 and 8000 programs as well as exchanges with Transport Canada on device certification. Other similar exchanges allegedly occurred through private accounts, this time through Gmail.“We don’t take this issue lightly,” Bombardier spokesman Simon Letendre told The Canadian Press in an email. “Bombardier intends to take all necessary measures to protect its intellectual property.”Bombardier is seeking unspecified financial damages as well as an injunction barring Mitsubishi Aircraft and AeroTEC from using confidential information allegedly obtained from ex-employees.The Quebec aircraft manufacturer is also asking Mitsubishi and its partner to stop recruiting within its workforce to get access to privileged information. read more

HSE will need nearly €200 million extra for this year

first_imgUpdated at 11.06pmTHE HEALTH SERVICE Executive (HSE) will require a further €199 million in extra funding this year as a result of budget overruns.A supplementary estimate totalling €219 million will be discussed by the Oireachtas Health Committee on Thursday with the HSE expected to realise around €20 million through savings elsewhere in the Department of Health bring the total amount needed to €199 million.The health overrun was not discussed in detail at Cabinet today as the Minister for Health James Reilly is in Brussels, but Public Expenditure and Reform Minister did brief Ministers on the details of Appropriations Bill.This bill deals with all government departments’ spending estimates for this year and will be published on Thursday following the Health Committee meeting.The bill contains all the spending estimates for each government department for this year, including departments where there have been overruns such as in the Department of Justice where €32 million extra is needed.Separately the HSE service plan for 2014 will now not come before Cabinet until next week as the Minister was not present to present details of the draft spending plan.Ministers are due to consider the HSE’s draft plan for spending its €13 billion budget next week, before it is then considered by the Health Committee, most likely in early January.First posted at 6.19pmRead: ‘No comment to make’ on reports Kathleen Lynch threatened to resignRead: GPs warn of “chaos” in health system after HSE boss raises cuts concernslast_img read more

The PS4s most prized indie games

first_imgThough Microsoft recently rolled back its policies on self-publishing, now allowing indie games to appear on the Xbox One with ease, Sony never made such a blunder against the indie crowd. Because of this, the PlayStation 4 already has a hefty amount of indie weight under its belt. More indie games are sure to follow, but below are nine of Sony’s most prized indie acquisitions.Octodad: Dadliest CatchObviously a comedy, this sequel stars everyone’s favorite dad of a human family who is secretly an octopus. The gameplay in the series is quite esoteric; performing menial human tasks is pretty difficult when you’re an octopus stuffed into a suit, and the gameplay centers around just how difficult that’d be. The enemy in the game is essentially the controls itself, except it’s intentional, and is somehow fun. We can’t wait, perhaps even more than a game about a loving father, caring husband, secret octopus should excite us.Don’t StarveThe game has been available on PC for a while now, but continues to receive minor and major updates. It’s set in a Tim Burton-like, Johnny Deppless world that revolves around a Minecraft-style survival, but without the mining. There is still a ton of exploring, resource gathering, and collecting, so aside from making building so tall it’s an affront to god, almost all of your Minecraft urges can be satisfied. Better yet, the game actually has a loose story mode, so you can beat it instead of play it forever.The WitnessJonathan Blow’s first game to hit after Braid, The Witness takes place on a mysterious, colorful island filled with puzzles. Sounds like Myst, right? Hopefully, the game isn’t some pretentious allegory about the atomic bomb like Braid is, but at least Blow has stated numerous times that he’s essentially using The Witness as proof that puzzle-adventure games can be good. So, that might it’ll be good.TransistorFrom Supergiant Games, the guys that brought you Bastion. If you liked Bastion, then Transistor will be the game for you, in that it looks extremely reminiscent of Bastion, except replaces the male lead with a female, and replaces arguably sensible weapons with Cloud’s Buster Sword if it were in Tron.Next page: Guns, space, and ponchos VIEW PHOTO GALLERY 1 2 octoballoctoballHard to ball without bones.dontstarvecampI’ve never made a floor in Don’t Starve.thewitnesstransistorThere’s a player character in there somewhere.mkNot quite Contra, not quite Metal Slug.galakzVery pretty for a work in progress.secretponchosProbably fun even though you don’t play as a sentient poncho.raysthedeadSo punny.outlastToo ripped.divekickThe kickingest game about kicking.Hard to ball without bones.last_img read more

UN calls for Myanmar war crimes panel

first_imgTen Rohingya Muslim men with their hands bound kneel as members of the Myanmar security forces stand guard in Inn Din village. ReutersThe UN human rights chief on Wednesday called for a new body tasked with preparing criminal indictments over atrocities committed in Myanmar, after a similar panel was created for the Syrian conflict.The Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council has set up multiple investigations and fact-finding missions into major trouble spots, including an active one for Myanmar.But some have expressed concern over the limitations of those probes, which focus on gathering a broad range of evidence about alleged atrocities, rather than assembling specific legal cases against individuals that can be taken to court.In the Syrian case, the UN General Assembly voted in 2016 to set up an “independent and impartial mechanism” to prepare prosecutorial files.UN rights chief Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein said Wednesday that a similar body was needed for Myanmar, where senior UN officials have said the military is continuing to wage a campaign against the Rohingya Muslim ethnic group that amounts to “ethnic cleansing”.Ten Rohingya Muslim men with their hands bound kneel in Inn Din village. Picture taken 1 September 2017. ReutersZeid called on the rights council to “ask the General Assembly to establish a new independent and impartial mechanism to prepare and expedite criminal proceedings in courts.”In his annual report to the council, Zeid restated his concern that “acts of genocide may have taken place” in the Rohingya homeland of Rakhine state.An estimated 700,000 Rohingya have fled over the border to Bangladesh since an army crackdown was launched in Rakhine in August.last_img read more

Cards Bow Out of ACC Championship

first_img Live Stats  Print Friendly Version “Offensively, I thought we had good plate appearances the whole game, they didn’t always have a great result, but I thought we were doing what we needed to do to go that way,” said UofL head coach Holly Aprile. “I think we got into a little bit of a jam on a couple of plays when they loaded the bases in the fifth inning and it’s hard to come back from that… I thought overall in the game we battled and made good adjustments – that was a tough inning.” Matchup History UNC 9 – Louisville 3 (ACC Quarterfinal) Full Schedule Roster Story Links UofL broke through with a run in the second after sophomore Kyra Snyder drew a walk, took second on a passed ball and eventually scored on an infield single by Newman. Louisville added two more runs in the third behind Hensley’s two-run homer.

Hensley stepped up and launched a shot over the left field fence for her 12th home run of the season to put the Cards up 3-0. Preview Next Game: vs. Southern Illinois 5/17/2019 | 1:00 p.m.center_img Louisville (33-21) will learn its postseason fate on Sunday at 9 p.m. (ET) when the NCAA selection show airs on ESPN2.

We thank the House, especially our many congressional champions like Reps. Goodlatte, Nadler, Collins and Jeffries, for their hard work and recognition of music’s massive cultural and economic significance to our country. We urge the Senate to take up this industry-supported bill without delay.”SoundExchange President & CEO Michael Huppe called this “an historic day for music creators,” and said  “This legislation stands to benefit artists, songwriters, labels, publishers, studio producers and others – many of whom are represented by the SoundExchange Companies. We are grateful that lawmakers in the House worked to update our nation’s copyright laws for the digital age, and we look forward to working with the Senate to get this legislation passed quickly. Music creators have waited long enough.” Popular on Variety In what is being hailed as a historic day for music creators, theMusic Modernization Act passed the House Wednesday, paving the way for improved royalty payments to songwriters, artists and creatives in the digital era. The bill, HR 5477, passed unanimously with 415 votes. The bill is overwhelmingly supported by the music industry, and has bipartisan support in the house, where it was introduced by co-sponsors Robert Goodlatte (R-VA) and Jerrold Nadler (D-NY).Speaking from the House floor today Goodlatte said the bill “brings early 20th century music laws for the analog era into the 21st century digital era,” adding, “music is no longer written on piano rolls, and our laws shouldn’t be based on that technology either.” Goodlatte, a driving force and co-author of the original legislation resulting in this bill, introduced the MMA in the House Judiciary Committee where it received unanimous passage on April 11. In positioning it for the full vote, he couched it in terms of economic hardship, stating “the problems and failures in our nation’s music laws have imposed real financial costs upon artists and creators.”center_img Speaking in support of the bill, Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA), emphasized the bill’s broad support. “Who would have thought that a Congressman from rural Georgia would find agreement with a liberal democrat from Brooklyn?,” said Collins, referring to NY Rep. Hakeem Jeffries.Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) noted  that the bill “doesn’t address everything” – notably omitting performer payment for radio airplay – but stresses it makes significant improvements. Goodlatte summed up those improvements in four specific areas, saying it will:Improve a dysfunctional mechanical licensing system “that seems to generate more paperwork and attorneys’ fees than royalties.”Ensure royalty protection for pre-1972 performancesProvide a statutory right to recognition for adjunct creators, including producers, sound engineers, and mixerslack of a unified rate standard for music royaltiesThe MMA combines four separate legislative initiatives into a single bill that will update how music rates are set and how songwriters and artists are paid.Key provisions of the bill is for Congress to establish the equivalent of a SoundExchange for songwriters to track credits and distribute royalties when digital services use their work. The switch to a market-based rate standard for artists and writers, closing the pre-1972 loophole that denied digital compensation to legacy artists and the addition of copyright royalties for producers and engineers are other changes embraced by the industry, including the Recording Academy and the RIAA to ASCAP, BMI, the American Association of Independent Music and the American Federation of Musicians.The MMA action now heads to the Senate, which will tackle its version of the package next month. At present, there are three individual Senate bills queued for a mid-May hearing by the Senate Judiciary Committee that like the House, the Senate may combine (either into its own version or simply taking up the House version, which is the music industry’s hope. Whatever the means, the basic tenets of the bill are expected to meet little resistance in the Senate, moving in some form to a full vote and then to President’s desk. At present, Sirius XM and background music service Music Choice represent the only notable opposition.National Music Publishers Association President & CEO David Israelite said: “The House passage of the Music Modernization Act is truly historic for songwriters and the entire music ecosystem which they fuel. The MMA improves how songwriters are paid and how their work is valued, both of which are long overdue. The bill also helps digital streaming companies by giving them access to all the music their consumers want to enjoy.”Israelite added, “I am immensely grateful to Congressmen Doug Collins and Hakeem Jeffries who have seen this process through from the beginning and have stood by songwriters through a complex and lengthy collaboration process, and to Chairman Goodlatte and Ranking Member Nadler for getting this bill to the House floor. Today’s vote sends a strong message that streaming services and songwriters can be on the same side – pushing for a better future for all. We now look forward to the Senate advancing the MMA and it ultimately becoming law.”Recording Industry Association Chairman & CEO  Cary Sherman said: “With this unanimous vote, we are one step closer to a once-in-a-generation reform of our music licensing laws. It’s a long time coming and we have much work to do, but the breadth and depth of unprecedented legislative support demonstrated over the last two weeks is illustrative. It is the result of a broken system that poorly serves creators and years of painstaking consensus-building by a many key members of Congress. This bill has advanced as far it has because its component parts reflect reforms of the entire music ecosystem. That is an essential ingredient.”Recording Academy President & CEO Neil Portnow said: “Music creators compose the soundtrack to our lives. These creators deserve to be paid a fair wage for their work. The passage of the Music Modernization Act in the House of Representatives is a historic step forward for all music creators, ensuring that they are credited, paid, and shown the respect they deserve for the impact they have on our culture and daily life. We are honored that GRAMMYs on the Hill helped to pave the way for these long overdue updates.”last_img read more

Although the defense has given up some big plays i

first_imgAlthough the defense has given up some big plays in each of the last three weeks, they’ve also made big plays – in crucial situations.I don’t believe the clock has struck midnight for the Cardinals, but they are at a crossroads. At the end of last season, I wrote that my expectations are high for this team. They still are. Now is not the time to jump off the bandwagon. – / 19 The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact There was some good news. The running game showed signs of life – namely Powell and Kolb – combining for 136 of the Cardinals 182 rushing yards. The toughest thing to swallow about this one is knowing the Bills limped into University of Phoenix Stadium having allowed 97 points in their last two games, and weren’t even competitive last week (a 45-3 beat down in San Francisco). This should have been a get well game for the Cardinals. The good news is – despite back to back losses – the Red Birds are still tied for first place in the NFC West. The bad news is their confidence has to be shaken, their starting quarterback is in a lot of pain, and D’Anthony Batiste and Bobby Massie are still their starting tackles (at least as of Sunday evening). Next Sunday they visit the Minnesota Vikings, who also lost on Sunday. Like the Cardinals, the Vikings are off to a surprising 4-2 start, but have also proven to be vulnerable. The Cardinals need to remember last year’s 34-10 loss at the Metrodome that dropped them to 1-4. They also need to remember that while it’s practically impossible to play a completely perfect game physically in this league, mentally there is absolutely no margin for error. Losses hurt in the NFL. Every last one of them.But the Cardinals 19-16 overtime defeat to the Bills on Sunday stings just a little bit more than most do. There’s plenty of blame to go around, but why point fingers?Why point fingers at an offensive line that features the two worst tackles in football? If you don’t believe me, just ask Kevin Kolb’s mouth and ribs — which have doubled as punching bags in the last two games. center_img Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Oops. I was trying to avoid the blame game. But seriously, is it too much to ask Reagan Maui’a, who only played because Anthony Sherman was out, to not spike the ball after a seven-yard catch near midfield? I know Maui’a only has a handful or so career catches, but when your offense struggles to move the ball forward, you’re supposed to embrace all the positive yards you can. After the game, Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt called the delay penalty, “stupidity.” That was a lot more G-rated than what the TV cameras caught him saying to Maui’a during the game.There were also the usual suspects — dropped passes, poor run blocking (as usual), a misread between Kolb and running back William Powell on the play where Kolb got knocked out of the game and bad reads by both Kolb and John Skelton which resulted in interceptions.I hate to throw Jay Feely under the bus, especially since his 61-yard field goal with 74 seconds left in regulation tied things up, but it’s tough to not lose sleep after a missed 38-yard field goal that would’ve won it — although Feely is convinced the kick was tipped after a low snap. LaRod Stephens-Howling’s drop on a screen pass came right before Skelton’s game deciding pick. 0 Comments   Share   last_img read more

So even though they never led in the game when th

first_imgSo even though they never led in the game, when the Cardinals had the ball in the final minutes down by just two, there was no doubt on the home sideline that they would take the lead and, maybe, steal a game they didn’t deserve.“I thought we felt we would win the game the entire game, even after we turned it over on downs on the last drive,” QB Carson Palmer said. “There is a lot of belief in that locker room, a lot of trust in each other. We don’t ever feel that we are out of it.”Palmer went on to say that sometimes games like this can be a “blessing in disguise,” as it will give them a chance to respond to the kind of adversity that was bound to present itself at some point this year. While this loss puts a damper on the early part of their season, at 3-1 there is still plenty of football left to be played.And chances are there will come another time, be it in Glendale or elsewhere, where the Cardinals are in need of some late-game heroics in order to come away with a victory. Like Sunday, when it ultimately did not work out, they’ll have confidence that they will be able to get the job done.As center Lyle Sendlein said, they’re going to have to. 0 Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “One-hundred percent, we always believe it,” he said. “I think that’s the first time in a game like that we haven’t pulled it out.“So that’s something we’ll all just have to have a little more belief that we can do it. I think everyone at that time did believe we were going to. Sometimes that’s half the battle.” – / 27 Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson (31) can’t make the catch on fourth down as St. Louis Rams cornerback Janoris Jenkins (21) defends the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Oct. 4, 2015, in Glendale, Ariz. The Rams won 24-22. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact In a way, it seemed like despite all the self-inflicted wounds and mistakes Sunday, the Cardinals had the Rams exactly where they wanted them. With less than two minutes remaining, they had the ball at the St. Louis 43 yard line facing a second and two. A game-winning field goal attempt — at worst — seemed like a foregone conclusion.Then Carson Palmer’s swing pass to David Johnson was batted down by the Rams’ Robert Quinn, Palmer missed an open Jaron Brown down the field and, on fourth down, Palmer again threw incomplete while looking for Johnson.Arizona’s offense never touched the ball again.“Those type of games we’ve won for two years — it’s the first one that we’ve lost like that and it’s hard to swallow because of the fact that we have won so many in the fourth quarter here the last two years,” the coach said Monday. “I think we just anticipated we’d make the play to win this one and we didn’t get it done.”Arizona entered the game with a 15-3 record at UofP Stadium under Arians, with many of those victories requiring some late-game magic. Last season, the Cardinals needed fourth quarter rallies to beat the San Diego Chargers, Philadelphia Eagles and St. Louis Rams. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo TEMPE, Ariz. — In a game full of disappointing developments, perhaps the one that tops the list is the most obvious one of them all: the Arizona Cardinals did not win.No, the Cardinals fell to the St. Louis Rams Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium by a score of 24-22. It’s not that the Cardinals necessarily deserved to win the game, mind you, just that it seems like under head coach Bruce Arians, the team has always found a way to win close games at home.
