Wednesday April 15th Local Sports

first_imgMINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Kirk Cousins has taken a new contract into an increasingly uncertain 2020 season that keeps his place as Minnesota’s quarterback for another three years. He’ll have a lot of new teammates around him, too, whenever he takes the field next for the Vikings. An expected departure of several mainstay players was accelerated by the trade that sent wide receiver Stefon Diggs to Buffalo. Cousins wished Diggs well and was one of the first players to message him once the deal became public. He called the trade a “win-win” for what the Vikings were able to recoup for a dissatisfied player.

ANGERED ESTATE RESIDENTS PROTEST OVER FOUL WATER FLOW

first_imgResidents of a Lifford housing estate are today staging a protest to highlight a stream of foul smelling sewage water that has plagued them for over four years.The stream runs through the Hazelwood Drive estate and out onto the busy Letterkenny Road.The problem has gotten so bad that residents must avoid being splashed by cars and trucks as they pass through the flow of filthy water. At 2pm today, some Hazelwood Drive residents will hold a protest to draw attention to the conditions of the estate, which also has just 2 out of 17 streetlights in operation.A resident has expressed their anger at being obligated to pay the Property Tax, despite the poor condition of the estate.“It’s just disgusting. How can children go out and play amongst this sort of filth. They could get all sorts of diseases,” said one resident.  ANGERED ESTATE RESIDENTS PROTEST OVER FOUL WATER FLOW was last modified: September 26th, 2013 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:foul waterhazelwood driveLiffordprotestlast_img read more

I’m very thankful for the opportunity that until now, I get a chance to represent a country in such a prestigious competition like the SEA Games,” he said.“This is something we really look forward to every two years, and in the SEA Games, we aspire to prove that we’re the best in terms of basketball in Southeast Asia.” Heart Evangelista admits she’s pregnant… with chickencenter_img World’s 50 Best Restaurants launches new drinking and dining guide Ravena said that adjusting to the system isn’t really much of a concern given his familiarity with the dribble-drive system, which is almost the same scheme used in the past iterations of the national team.“It’s really not that hard for me since this is the system that we’ve been running in the past couple of SEA Games with coach Jong (Uichico) and coach Tab (Baldwin). So adjustment-wise, there’s nothing really big on it. I guess it’s more of the players, but again, I’m lucky that I’m familiar with these players who I’ve been teammates with and I’ve played against one way or another, so it’s easier for me,” he said.Ravena also isn’t going to the regional tilt as the lone veteran, with Kevin Ferrer and Bobby Ray Parks seeking their third gold medal, as well as Troy Rosario, Baser Amer, and Almond Vosotros eyeing their second.With this wealth of experience, the two-time UAAP MVP eyes to share the knowledge to SEA Games rookies, like Kobe Paras, as they seek to further extend the Philippines’ dominance in the said event.“I guess it’s very important to share that knowledge, share that glory which you could only feel in the SEA Games. It’s not gonna be a walk in the park, unlike what other people say that it’s already a sure-ball, because it won’t.

I was watching the SEABA Championships here, and from what I’ve heard and what I saw, that was their preparation for the SEA Games. So some of the teams came to the SEABA Championships not really to win but to beat the Philippines in the SEA Games. So that’s bigger target on our backs. Each and everyone of us will be playing, and we have to be aware of that, and we have to see and really accept the fact that some of the teams are already improving. It won’t be as easy as before or the previous years,” he said.“As I said before 2011, they have a program that’s really set, that one of these years, can beat the Philippines. But we won’t let that happen.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next MOST READ View commentslast_img read more

BW LPG Seals USD 150 Million Refinancing Deal

first_imgzoom Owner and operator of LPG carriers BW LPG Limited has signed a USD 150 million loan agreement with a syndicate of lenders aimed at refinancing its revolving facility maturing in March 2018.Back in November, the company said that it had received a commitment term sheet for the loan which will be used to refinance its existing USD 150 million unsecured revolving credit facility.The 5-year refinancing deal has been secured with ING Bank, a branch of ING-DiBa AG, Danish Ship Finance A/S, Development Bank of Japan Inc, Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited and Societe Generale as mandated lead arrangers and lenders.The all-in cost for this financing is LIBOR plus 1.7 percent, with an 8-year amortization profile. “We are extremely pleased with the strong support we have received from our existing lenders and have added new lenders to our banking group with this financing,” BW LPG Chief Executive Officer, Martin Ackermann, said.“Successfully refinancing our revolving credit facility demonstrates the ability of the BW LPG platform to obtain market-leading financing. With this new facility in place, we have enhanced our financial flexibility and continue to keep our financing costs low.”The refinancing agreement comes in the wake of the company’s third-quarter loss after tax of USD 26 million.The poor performance was primarily assigned to a decline in LPG spot rates and lower fleet utilization.BW LPG currently owns and operates 53 gas carriers including two VLGC newbuildings with a total carrying capacity of 4.3 million cbm.last_img read more

Indigenous consultations on TMX pipeline on schedule Natural Resources minister

first_imgCALGARY, A.B. – Natural Resources Minister Amarjeet Sohi says consultations with Indigenous groups about the stalled Trans Mountain pipeline expansion are progressing well and he still expects to wrap up the court-ordered process by May.On a conference call from Houston, where he’s attending the CERAWeek energy conference, Sohi told reporters his department has now met with more than 100 of the 117 Indigenous communities expected to be impacted by the project.The Federal Appeal Court last summer overturned approval of the project to triple oil shipments from Edmonton to the West Coast, ruling that the NEB had not properly considered its impact on marine life nor had Ottawa meaningfully consulted with Indigenous groups. Last month, the National Energy Board found that the pipeline is still in the public interest despite the risk that an increase in tanker traffic could adversely affect southern resident killer whales, hurt related Indigenous culture and increase greenhouse gas emissions.It added 16 new recommendations for federal government action in addition to the 156 conditions in its initial approval in 2016.Sohi says the recommendations, which the NEB said are not within its power to order, are already being studied by his department and will be considered in the government’s decision on TMX when consultations are complete.“The NEB report informs our ongoing consultations and those recommendations will be discussed once the cabinet is ready to make the final decision,” he said.Cabinet is under immense pressure to decide the fate of the pipeline before the federal election in the fall.There is also pressure to get the expansion built because Ottawa bought the existing pipeline from Kinder Morgan for $4.5 billion last August, after political opposition to the expansion left the company’s shareholders reluctant to proceed.last_img read more
