Wood & Wire Concert At Fuller Lodge Sept. 7

first_imgWood & Wire quintet performs 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7 at Fuller Lodge. Courtesy/LLALive In Los Alamos News:Austin-based bluegrass phenoms Wood & Wire will open the fall concert series for Live in Los Alamos.Touring heavily behind last year’s album, North of Despair, which earned the band a Grammy nomination for Best Bluegrass Record, the quintet will play 7:30 pm. Saturday, Sept. 7 at Fuller Lodge.While Wood & Wire deserve the accolades they get for their mastery of traditional bluegrass, it is their ability to stretch the genre that has many referring to them as Americana roots juggernauts. The show at Fuller Lodge promises to have many out of their seats and dancing, but there will be some room made for those who prefer to remain seated.According to the band’s official website, “Wood & Wire considers itself fortunate to exist ‘south of rich and north of despair’, buoyed by family and friends to keep them from the bottom. Never ones to shy away from hard work, Wood & Wire rely on their humble acoustic instruments and their own hands to make music meant to last.”As front man and  lead songwriter Tony Kamel sings, “I ain’t trying to be the kingpin, I’m just trying to make a living.” An even more comfortable living could be on the horizon should the band’s trajectory continue; Los Alamos is lucky to have the band amidst that trajectory and ticket sales have been brisk. Get yours at Los Alamos Schools Credit Union for $15, at liveinlosalamos.com for $17.50, or at the door (if still available) for $20.The Texas tradition will be well represented the night of the show when Santa Fe’s Uncle DT’s Smokehouse pulls in to offer a full Texas style BBQ dinner ($10) to those who are in attendance. The restaurant won many fans when they catered an earlier Live in Los Alamos event and even turned many vegetarians on to the Texan style with their smoked tofu alternative. Beer and wine will be available from Bathtub Row when the doors open at 6:30 p.m. at Fuller Lodge.http://www.woodandwireband.com/photoshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8iz5PE1nMklast_img read more

BIMCO warns of escalating tensions in the Middle East

first_imgThe conflict between the USA and Iran is ongoing and BIMCO warned that further retaliation must be expected. The association added that “Iranian retaliation can take place anywhere in the world, on land or at sea, where Iran and their Shia proxies have the possibility to hit the US or their allies, including the Persian Gulf, the Straits of Hormuz, the Gulf of Oman, the Arabian Sea, the Bab el-Mandeb and the Red Sea”.For shipping, the most likely targets are ships, crews or cargoes with direct links to the USA, or its closest allies. “It is expected that Iran will seek options for retaliation that include an element of plausible deniability of involvement, as this will make it more difficult for the USA to justify retaliatory action and help stoke up the political differences domestically in the USA, as well as between the USA and its usual allies,” added BIMCO. The association is therefore encouraging “basic precautions”, including reporting to the United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO), strengthening the ship’s watertight integrity and firefighting capability and improve lookout and general awareness of how the situation develops.“Shipowners planning to send ships to the troubled region should carry out a thorough risk assessment and consider all relevant factors. Some shipowners will choose to stay away completely, while others will find it safe enough to carry out the voyage. Such a decision depends on the risk appetite of the shipowner and the outcome of the risk assessment,” said BIMCO.www.bimco.orglast_img read more

Dari sejarahnya, Leyland Atlantean masuk ke Indonesia pada tahun 1983. Asal muasalnya berasal dari program hibah Pemerintah Inggris. Ada yang menyebut bahwa hibah armada Atlantean terkait imbal balik pengadaan jet latih tempur Hawk M53 untuk TNI AU yang dibeli dari Inggris pada tahun 1980.Dibandingkan bus reguler, maka Atlantean dapat membawa 106 penumpang sekali jalan. Jenis yang masuk ke Indonesia adalah tipe Leyland Atlantean An 68/2R dengan karoseri Alexander (diproduksi antara tahun 1972-1984).

Officials Say LNG Project’s Steel Pipeline Could Withstand Cook Inlet’s Currents

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska Gasline Development Corporation told federal regulators that they are confident the Alaska LNG project’s steel pipeline could withstand Cook Inlet’s strong currents along the 29-mile underwater route to the gas liquefaction plant in Nikiski. “The analysis indicates that the installed pipeline would be stable and not subject to lateral movement,” AGDC said. The state team added that stability designs would be “further evaluated … when updated geotechnical information is available.” The water-crossing information is among the remaining batches of answers the AGDC owes to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), which is expected to publish its draft environmental impact statement this month. The analysis showed that any hits by boulders of the size modeled “can be easily absorbed by the pipeline steel alone,” AGDC told FERC. “The strong tidal currents of Cook Inlet could potentially move debris and boulders across the pipeline,” AGDC reported in a May 24 filing with FERC. The project team analyzed what would happen if boulders as large as 10 tonnes (22,000 pounds) fell on the 42-inch-diameter pipeline, which would be laid — not buried — on the seabed floor. The analysis also looked at the risk of 15-tonne boulders “traveling at the maximum identified Cook Inlet bottom current velocity of 4.8 knots.” BP, and ExxonMobil announced at the end of May their intent to invest $20 million to advance the state’s $43 billion Alaska gas line project. For additional protection, the 1.25-inch-thick steel pipe would be coated with 3.5 inches of concrete before the lengths are welded together and lowered to the seafloor. The pipe in Cook Inlet would be substantially heavier than the pipe along the rest of the 807-mile route from Prudhoe Bay to Nikiski, most of which would range between 0.677 and 0.862 inches thick.last_img read more
