Arctic R&D with ABS

first_imgAccording to ABS manager of harsh environment technology, Hun Yu, “In the last few years there has been increasing interest in floating, drilling and production operations in the Arctic and cold regions.” The 2013 Arctic workshop will take place March 19-20, 2013 in St Johns, Newfoundland, USA. Approximately 70 Arctic experts from industry and academia will come together to discuss the challenges and potential solutions to operating in the polar environments, and to identify joint research opportunities. At the last ABS Arctic workshop event in December 2012, the key areas of research identified were: the need for a global ice load model and full-scale measurement, more research and development on ice load management and mooring on ice, and Arctic regulation and standards development. James Bond, ABS director of shared technology added: “As exploration and production activity move into more harsh environments, it is even more important for us to work with industry. “Together, class, industry and academia can break down the technology barriers that constrain Arctic operations,” Bond added. ABS is a provider of classification services to the global offshore industry. www.eagle.orglast_img read more

SRA plans referral checks on PI sector

Source: Jonathan GoldbergIn advance of the visits, the SRA will write to a ‘large number’ of personal injury firms to say they are being inspected.A spokesman for the SRA told the Gazette it has not been confirmed how many firms will receive visits and when they will happen.The regulator will be keen to show its commitment to enforcing the ban after the Ministry of Justice opted to hand it the responsibility.Penalties for breach of the ban can range from a £2,000 fine to referral to the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal and revocation of authorisation to practise. Officials from the Solicitors Regulation Authority are to visit firms in person to check if they are complying with the referral fee ban, it emerged today.Chief executive Antony Townsend revealed the planned visits in his report ahead of the regulator’s monthly board meeting this week.The regulator is responsible for policing the ban, which came into force in April, on solicitors paying third parties for personal injury claims.  The Ministry of Justice has already started a written audit on claims management companies and their links with law firms.Townsend said supervision officers will assess how firms have approached the changes and whether their practices are compliant with the new legislation.He added: ‘This will include visits to a variety of sizes and types of firms, covering a range of referral schemes, and we will particularly focus on how firms obtain personal injury work, and what information and advice is given to clients about any referral arrangements.’ read more

Caribbean Endemic Bird Festival Celebrates Year of the Bird

first_img Tweet Share NewsRegional Caribbean Endemic Bird Festival Celebrates Year of the Bird by: – April 23, 2018 Share Sharing is caring!center_img Share 50 Views   no discussions Photo credit: Focus on Nature(Press Release April 22, 2018) —This spring, groups throughout the Caribbean will be celebrating the birds that are only found here. 40 events on 14 islands are already on the schedule for this year’s Caribbean Endemic Bird Festival (CEBF). More than 80,000 Caribbean residents, friends and visitors will join in the activities, led by BirdsCaribbean. Earth day, April 22, marks the beginning of the festival, which continues to May 22 – the International Day for Biological Diversity.2018 was designated “Year of the Bird” by the National Geographic Society to commemorate 100 years of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. This is a powerful document that has protected birds for generations. The 2018 CEBF theme is “Year of the Bird.”In the 17-year history of the CEBF, BirdsCaribbean and its enthusiastic partners across the region have always found fun and creative ways to connect people to our Caribbean endemic birds. The festival seeks to inspire people of all ages and walks of life to conserve our birds and our natural environment. This is even more critical in the wake of 2017’s devastating hurricanes. The recovery and the resilience of our bird populations must also be recognized in the coming month.Why is the CEBF important? Of the 565 species of birds in our region, 173 are unique to us. They are a unique part of the region’s natural heritage. The CEBF is also an expression of who we are and how we connect with the environment. It brings people together. Learning about our birds takes place in a diverse, harmonious setting. In previous years, church services, radio and television interviews, street parades, fairs, information booths, drama and art competitions have all formed part of the CEBF celebrations.last_img read more
