Ramp RFID and Woodside test first LNG Smart Tag

first_imgRamp RFID & Woodside have trialled the first Woodside LNG Smart Tag (or W-Tag). Testing of the W-Tag was a collaboration between Woodside’s Martijn Truijens and RAMP’s Alastair McArthur.The W-Tag is an IECEX certified dual technology, smart tag, suitable for the oil and gas industry. The ability to read and write to the tag memory from long distance is a key feature of the smart tag.The tag also features high visibility, long range active RFID, 5 year battery life, back-up passive RFID and barcodes, with IP68 rating, and IECEX & ATEX certified. The W-Tag has been launched at the Woodside operated Karratha Gas Plant. Woodside intends to share the results of the trial with interested parties.Ramp RFID will be participating in the research project by providing products and services to enable additional visibility into the construction materials tracking process. Ramp RFID will also implement an advanced system for research and development of RFID tracking technologies for lean construction, combining the W-Tag and Intelliwave’s powerful SiteSense software platform.During the course of the project, benefits such as the time and costs associated with errors, rework, omissions, waste, slips and lapses made by workers have been significantly reduced using this fully integrated system.“Bringing technologies and people together to provide construction productivity is core to Ramp’s mission,” said Kevin Cohen, CEO, Ramp RFID. “We are honored to be part of this groundbreaking effort that will clearly change the face of LNG construction projects going forward,” he added.Ramp RFID will be participating in a simulation activity at the Challenger Institute of Technology in collaboration with Curtin University.[mappress]Press Release, July 4, 2014last_img read more

Walter Presents: Detective Cain preview – a fun and engaging watch

first_imgAlthough new to the UK audience, Detective Cain is on its seventh series in its native France, where’s it’s a hugely popular show (where it goes under the name of Caïn). It stars Bruno Debrandt in the lead role, who many will recognise as Commissioner Brémont from the fabulous (and far darker) series, Spiral.If you want to avoid spoilers for Detective Cain, stop reading this article now.Debrandt plays Detective Fred Cain, a wheelchair-bound cop who, to my eyes, bears an uncanny resemblance to the late, great Lewis Collins of Professionals fame. Cain is based in the beautiful surroundings of the south of France – Marseilles, to be precise. He is partnered alongside Lucie (played by Julie Delarme). Their relationship is both professional and (probably) personal. There’s a spark between the two that is akin to Brennan and Booth in US series Bones.Credit: Walter PresentsEach episode is a stand-alone story, which means you can jump in and out without having to worry too much about watching each episode in order. The first show in this series revolves around a retired cop, Allard, who has terminal cancer. Dead bodies are turning up in the morgue and the connection between them is that they were all suspects in unsolved cases that Allard had investigated. He’s brought in to help with the cases, but questions are soon raised about his involvement with the killings themselves. Is he there to help the investigation, or is his interest more personal?This is relatively lightweight show – very American in style – that is lovely to watch, thanks in large part to the lovely Marseilles backdrop that looks remarkably like California at times. The lead actors are attractive and their characters easy to like, if a little shallow. There isn’t a huge amount of in-depth characterization here, to be honest. All we know about Cain himself outside of the motorcycling accident that caused his disability is that he has a son who seems to be punching above his weight with a beautiful and wealthy girlfriend. There is clearly a side story here regarding Cain’s relationship with his son, particularly after he meets the girlfriend at a somewhat frosty lunch.As you can gather, this is an easy watch. It looks great on screen, it’s well-acted and nicely written. But it’s not Spiral – not by a long chalk! Don’t expect to be challenged by anything profoundly thought-provoking. But that’s fine – it’s fun, witty and an engaging watch and there’s nothing wrong with that!Credit: Walter PresentsWalter Presents continue to find enjoyable foreign programming for us to enjoy, and Detective Cain is a worthy addition to the roster.Walter Presents: Detective Cain is available in full from Walter Presents on All 4 from today (6th September).last_img read more

Dominica on Business Insider’s best Caribbean islands list

first_img Share NEW YORK, United States, Monday February 29, 2016 – Business Insider described the Caribbean islands as “bursting with adventurous activities, clear waters, and stunning natural sites.” Yet while lauding the appeal of all the islands, the publication noted that “some have advantages over the others,” prompting it to rank them.The publication’s take on what constituted the best islands encompassed the cost of hotel bookings, the destination’s accessibility, and the range of activities available.The method used to rank the islands involved factoring in each island’s average hotel room costs using data from; the flight time from New York City; the number of attractions listed on TripAdvisor, and the amount of coastline offered per square kilometre, which Business Insider called the “beach density score.”In most instances, the publication defined a Caribbean island as a single country, republic, or territory in the region.Here’s how they placed:25.

Countdown to Opening Day: Reason #10 Why The 2016 Cleveland Indians Will Rock: Veteran Leadership

first_img Matt Medley is co-editor at NEO Sports Insiders, covers the Cleveland Cavaliers, Cleveland Indians and high school sports in Northeast Ohio.Follow @MedleyHoops on Twitter for live updates from games. With Opening Day at the Corner of Carnegie and Ontario just 10 days away, we wanted to start our countdown of the top ten reasons why the Tribe will rock in 2016.Today we start with reason #10. Veteran Leadership.Tribe fans know from Terry Francona’s last three seasons in Cleveland that the 2-time World Series manager loves his veteran leaders.The new Front Office led by Team President Chris Antonetti and General Manager Mike Chirnoff went out this off-season and acquired several experienced players with impressive track records over long careers.What would probably be considered the biggest off-season acquistion was the addition of First Baseman/Designated Hitter Mike Napoli. Napoli had an up and down 2015, in which he got off to a rough start, but finished strong.He started the season with Boston, hitting just .207 before getting traded to the Texas Rangers in August.Napoli was like a different player the rest of the season, helping the Rangers reach the playoffs.Whether it was just the change of scenery, getting back to the team where he played two seasons and became an All-Star between 2011-2012, or just the fact that Texas is a great hitters’ park, Napoli hit .295 in the last 35 games of the season.He finished 2015 with a combined batting average of .224 with 18 home runs and 50 RBI.But Napoli was not the only veteran added to the Tribe’s lineup.Outfielder Rajai Davis, who has done his fair share of damage to the Tribe over the years, figures to play a big role in Cleveland this season.Davis is 35 years old, but has still been productive in recent years, owning a career average of .269. Davis hit .258 in 2015, stealing 18 bases. One of his best assets is his speed, as Davis has stolen 322 bases in his 10-year career, and although we can’t expect him to go back to the days of his mid-twenties, don’t be surprised to see Davis use his legs to score some extra runs for the Tribe this year.What would probably be considered the third biggest off-season acquisition for the Tribe was the addition of Third Baseman Juan Uribe. The 37-year-old has put together a solid, respectable career no matter where he plays. Cleveland will be his 7th different team of his career, and the fourth club he will be a part of in the last two seasons. Uribe was one of the components to the Mets’ run to the World Series in 2015, hitting six home runs in 44 games after being traded to New York in July. He hit a combined .253 with 14 home runs and 43 RBI in 2015. Whether Uribe plays almost every game or does not get every day playing time, he should be a valuable mentor for Giovanny Urshela, who already had an excellent season defensively in his 2015 rookie campaign, and is hitting the ball well in Spring Training.The other big acquisition the Tribe made in terms of a veteran leader was outfielder Marlon Byrd.Although he only signed a little over a week ago, Byrd could provide some power from the right side of the plate.It’s still not a guarantee that he makes the club, but the 38-year-old hit .247 with 23 home runs and 73 RBI in 2015. He also hit 25 home runs in 2014 and 24 in 2013. For a team lacking power, Byrd could make a big difference.What all of these players can add to the team, whether they play like they did five years ago or not, is veteran leadership.The Tribe was a relatively young team in 2015, with leaders like Corey Kluber, Michael Brantley, and Jason Kipnis just approaching the age of 30. Between the Tribe’s core of Brantley, Kluber, Kipnis, Yan Gomes, and Carlos Santana, none of them have played more than one postseason game in their careers, which was the Wild Card game they lost in 2013 to Tampa Bay.Between Napoli and Uribe the pair has played in 96 postseason games. Davis has only played in three, but he’s been in the Majors for 10 years.What’s even more impressive about Uribe and Napoli is that they have played in a combined 22 World Series games. Uribe has two rings. Napoli has one. That kind of experience can only help a young team, striving to reach the playoffs and contend. Which player do you think will help the Tribe the most in 2016? Come back tomorrow for reason #9 to be excited about the Tribe! Matt Medley Related TopicsJuan UribeMarlon ByrdMike NapoliRajai Davislast_img read more
