PCN celebrates 3rd birthday

first_imgThe PCN head office is now preparing for what will be its largest member gathering to date – the PCN Annual Summit, November 17-19, 2013 in Bangkok, Thailand. Rachel Humphrey, founder and chairwoman of PCN, observed that starting a network during the global financial crisis was a calculated risk: “Having seen recessions in the past we positioned ourselves to take on the many challenges associated with managing a network through difficult times. “In working with heavy lift and project cargo specialists we have found that a company’s ability to adjust to the changing economic climate significantly affects how well it will emerge from challenging times. We were prepared and ready to assist our members to help build and develop their specialist services.” Humprey added that over the last 12 months PCN accepted 71 members; more than 80 applicants were rejected due to a lack of experience, too many of their own overseas offices, or due to a country being fully-represented. www.projectcargonetwork.comlast_img read more

Curry leads Warriors rally vs Spurs

The face is also unusually chubby, in contrast to Ronaldo’s chiseled looks.Dozens of guests and hundreds of fans were at the unveiling of the bust in Ronaldo’s native Madeira Islands. It was part of an official ceremony to rename the local airport as Aeroporto Cristiano Ronaldo.Ronaldo also attended the ceremony, but did not show any signs of being bothered by the odd look of his newly unveiled bust.The bust’s sculptor, Madeira native Emanuel Santos, said it took him 15 days to create the statue. He said he presented the project to local officials when it was about half done and received the go-ahead to continue with his work.“It’s always a great honor to work on project like that,” Santos told local television channel RTP. “I still haven’t had the chance to personally talk to (Ronaldo), but I’ll try to reach out to him to know his feedback.”Ronaldo’s full-body statue outside his museum in Funchal also does not do a very good depiction of the Real Madrid star, although it better resembles the player.
