Alicat Workboats Delivers Iceni Conquest

first_imgAlicat Workboats Ltd. has delivered the third of class Alicat 21m, ‘Iceni Conquest’ to Iceni Marine Services Ltd., also of Great Yarmouth, Norfolk.The 21m Alicat design has been proven in service with two other sister craft working on UK offshore wind projects.‘Iceni Conquest’ has secured a charter on the Greater Gabbard offshore wind farm project with SSE Renewables ensuring the vessel leaves the yard and heads directly to work.Richard Thurlow of Iceni Marine Services Ltd said: “We have a long standing relationship with the Alicat Workboats and South Boats IOW group and with our latest two 23m vessels heading straight to O&M contracts we had a requirement for a smaller vessel to fulfil the requirements of offshore wind farm construction. The Alicat 21m fits the bill perfectly for us, it offers high quality workmanship, a hallmark of Iceni vessels, but remains cost effective to purchase and operate. With the delivery of two 23m vessel already, this has been a busy start to the year for us.”Ben Colman of Alicat Workboats Ltd added: “We are very proud to have handed ‘Iceni Conquest’ over to Iceni Marine Services Ltd. and wish the vessel well on her current and future projects.”Image: southboatslast_img read more

first_imgJonas Korpisalo and Elvis Merzlikins Photo: Jason Mowry / Icon Sportswire via Getty ImagesBoth team goalkeepers Elvis Merzlikins and Jonas Korpisalo will score in the only game of the Columbia Blue Jackets before the resumption of the National Hockey League (NHL) season, the club’s head coach John Tortorella revealed in the podcast “CBJin30”.At night on Friday at At 2:00 Latvian time, “Blue Jackets”, represented by Latvian goalkeeper Merzlikkin, will play a test match against Boston’s “Bruins”. It will be the only team test game before the official resumption of the NHL season, as already on August 3 at At 3:00 Latvian time, the team will play the first play-in game, meeting up to three winners in a series with the Toronto Maple Leafs.“The game time will be divided between them,” Tortorella described the goalkeeper’s situation in tonight’s upcoming test game. It is not yet clear at the club which goalkeeper – Merzlikkin or Jonas Korpisalo – will be the first number in the playoffs, but according to the American hockey specialist, the game against the Bruins will be the last chance to make a good impression and earn the role of the first goalkeeper in the upcoming playoffs. game series.“Which goalkeeper we will go to in the playoffs is probably the biggest question. If we didn’t have such a goalkeeper duo, we wouldn’t be where we are now, “the coach said. “We have had a lot of conversations with them. They both deserve a chance and both can play later in the season. ”“I think it will be a sprint,” Tortorella said, recalling that the winner of the play-in round will be determined in a series of up to three wins. “I won’t wait until one of them gets into the playoffs, I’ll choose the one that’s better for them.”This season Merzlikkin made his debut in the NHL. In 33 matches, he helped the Blue Jackets achieve 13 successes, repelling 92.3% of throws and scoring an average of 2.35 goals. The goalkeeper also has five dry games. During the break caused by the coronavirus Covid-19, he signed a new two-year contract with the team for eight million dollars.Korpisalo also signed a two-season, $ 5.6 million deal. The Finnish puck catcher has repelled 91.1% of the throws in 37 fights this season, but has averaged 2.6 puck in the match. Both Korpisalo and Merzlikkin are peers – both born in 1994.The third number of the team is Matīss Kivlenieks, but it is unlikely that he will be at the game if both goalkeepers are healthy.Blue Jackets for the season finale in Toronto and Edmonton:Attackers – Markus Foligno, Alexander Venberg, Kevin Stanlund, Chem Atkinson, Gustav Nykist, Pierre Lew Dibou, Luc Foudy, Riley Nash, Stephen Matthew, Neitan Djerbe, Oliver Borkstrand, Boon Jenner, Alexander Robin, Alexander Texner, Alexander , Josh Anderson;protectors – Andrew Peak, Seth Jones, Scott Harrington, Eden Clendingen, Zeck Verensky, Ryan Moore, Vladislav Gavrikov, Dean Cookan, Gabriel Carlson, David Savard, Markus Nutivara;goalkeepers – Elvis Merzļikins, Jonas Korpisalo, Matīss Kivlenieks.last_img read more

In the NBA, foreign players try to understand social issues

first_imgBREAKING: Solicitor General asks SC to forfeit ABS CBN’s franchise View comments EDITORS’ PICK NBA: Lakers waive Chinese forward Yi Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next “It’s kind of hard for me to understand, since I’m coming from a different country,” Dragic said. “But if those things were happening in my country, of course I would have something to say while being true to the country, because that’s where I grew up and they gave me everything.”Officials in teams’ front offices and at league headquarters have had ongoing discussions with the players union about what do. Both sides appear to be more focused on developing programs to address social injustices rather than demonstrations like Kaepernick’s public displays during the anthem.READ: NBA, NBPA send players memo seeking ideas for social changesBut that doesn’t mean there won’t be protests as the league tips off its latest season on Tuesday night. The NBA has long embraced a reputation for being the most socially conscious league in the United States, but there is a rule in the collective bargaining agreement that requires players to stand respectfully for the anthem.Many of the roughly 22 percent of the league’s players who come from outside the U.S. are white Europeans or Australians and do not have the same perspectives that their African-American teammates had growing up here even though racial inequality is a problem that exists throughout the world.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Dragic had conversations with several of his black teammates before the Heat decided to lock arms during the anthem in the preseason in a show of unity. It is sensitive, complex ground to navigate and requires a deep understanding of the issues before teammates feel comfortable enough to put themselves out there.“I understand that we’re putting a message out there for society to be better,” Dragic said. “But at the same time, we don’t disrespect the flag or the national anthem and I think that’s good. We don’t want to be too aggressive but at the same time we want to let people know that something wrong is happening out there and we want to correct those things.”LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade got things started with a call for action at the ESPY awards in July, and Anthony organized a town hall forum later that month. There have been many other efforts, including the Chicago Bulls hosting their second annual basketball tournament geared toward creating dialogue between the police and the community and new Memphis Grizzlies coach David Fizdale helping revive the city’s Police Athletic League, which helps mentor law enforcement on how to become coaches in youth leagues.“I’ve thought a lot about this, and (NBPA executive director) Michele Roberts and I have talked a lot about these issues, that there may be no organization in our society better positioned than the NBA and its players to try to have an impact on these difficult issues plaguing many of our cities,” NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said last week.It isn’t just foreign players and African-Americans in the NBA who are engaging.“For me, I can’t personally understand what some other players go through,” said Minnesota Timberwolves center Cole Aldrich, who grew up in the predominantly white Minneapolis suburb of Bloomington. “I grew up differently than (Serbian Nemanja Bjelica) or (African-American) Karl-Anthony Towns or whoever. I personally love … trying to broaden my (horizons) on that.”Golden State Warriors center Zaza Pachulia, a Turkish citizen born in Georgia, said he has spoken to his new teammates about the current climate.“Draymond (Green) said it the best. We can show as much about this as we want but question is, what is going to be done to fix the problem and fix the issues?” Pachulia said. “That’s the message already sent by individuals and by groups. Now what? Whatever we do, we do as a team.”Several foreign players remain conflicted. Many left their native countries and have found great success and wealth in the NBA. But they also understand that the path some of their teammates took to get to the same place came with difficulties and still deal with issues that they could never imagine.“I understand from an African-American’s point of view or a teammate’s point of view if they didn’t want to stand and be part of that kind of protest,” Bogut said. “But at the same time, I’m thankful America’s provided a lot for myself and my family. It’s a tough one. I’m very supportive of my teammates. But at the same time, the country, much like Australia, is built on free speech. Everybody has an opinion on different types of things.” 30 Filipinos from Wuhan quarantined in Capas FILE – In this Jan. 6, 2015, file photo, then-Phoenix Suns’ Goran Dragic attempts a layup over then-Milwaukee Bucks’ Zaza Pachulia during an NBA basketball game in Milwaukee.

As the season is set to begin and talk of demonstrations during the national anthem continue, international players have sought counsel from their African-American teammates to try to relate to problems they never experienced growing up in their countries. (AP Photo/Aaron Gash, File)Andrew Bogut grew up in a richly diverse area of Melbourne, Australia, and has estimated that he went to school with people from nearly 100 different nationalities.He has fondly referred to his home as a tolerant and inclusive community, one largely devoid of racial tension that many of his NBA teammates faced growing up in the United States. But Bogut and other international players have been on the periphery, if not part of, discussions in locker rooms as their teammates address social issues like police brutality and racial profiling, concerns that prompted Colin Kaepernick to begin kneeling during the nation anthem in September.ADVERTISEMENT Mainland China virus cases exceed 40,000; deaths rise to 908 Smart hosts first 5G-powered esports exhibition match in PH Taiwan minister boards cruise ship turned away by Japan PLAY LIST 01:31Taiwan minister boards cruise ship turned away by Japan01:33WHO: ‘Global stocks of masks and respirators are now insufficient’01:01WHO: now 31,211 virus cases in China 102:02Vitamin C prevents but doesn’t cure diseases like coronavirus—medic03:07’HINDI PANG-SPORTS LANG!’03:03SILIP SA INTEL FUND When Bogut reported to training camp with the Dallas Mavericks and the subject of anthem protests started to surface, he said he couldn’t really identify with the plight of some of his African-American teammates who were considering joining the San Francisco 49ers quarterback and others in the demonstrations.READ: Obama hopeful national anthem protests spark a conversationFEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra teammates show love for SlaughterSPORTSWe are youngSPORTSCone plans to speak with Slaughter, agent“I think it’s a country that prides itself on free speech,” Bogut said of the U.S. “And if … they want to do that it’s more than their right.

How to Spur Innovation at Your Organization

first_imgTechnology tools are helpful, but they aren’t a substitute for human creativity. I read this from the HR Bartender blog authored by Sharlyn Lauby, one of my favorite HR thought leaders. She was talking about the best way to innovate today! Read it here! As she mentioned, the best way to innovate is to leverage the people and corporate culture that you already have in place. Those are the two pivotal factors, and any mismanagement of those can go wrong, especially when your talent has an innovative idea in the making. Here are a few things I would add to spur innovation at your organization: Start taking some riskNaturally, most employers go the direction of the less risky way and want to make sure they know what the outcome is going to be. But if they go too far in that direction, they stop learning new things and stop innovating. Get rid of the cultural barriersFear of failure can be the biggest cultural barrier. Inability to admit failure leads to inefficiencies and bigger failures. So leaders should support failures and embrace them to develop the untapped potential in employees. Create an environment where failures are accepted and encouraged. Let employees try something that is worth trying. Reward MistakesSue Shellenbarger, Work & Family columnist Wall Street Journal news editor says employers are rewarding employees for their mistakes or questionable risks. Keep in mind – not the same mistakes! For example: Grey New York, an advertising company, fosters a culture of creativity by rewarding the Heroic Failure Award to embrace the importance of trying, failing, dusting oneself off and trying again. Read it here to know more about their inspirational ideas in encouraging employees to innovate. Another example is the P&G’s Future Works Program, a separate division within the company, that invites employees to partner and to preserve a climate of innovation.Learn from the mistakesGive your employees an opportunity to openly share their mistakes and the lessons they learned from them. This will help nurture a relationship where trust, togetherness and constructive criticism are valued and appreciated. Emphasize sharing stories of failure within the organization just as much as you do with stories of success. Create a work environmentHave a focus group or committee, or a system for employees to communicate their ideas. Companies do various types of initiatives to help their employees relax, dust off their minds and to let them think of innovative ideas. For example, Grey New York has a ‘No Meeting Zone’ every Thursday morning from 9:00 a.m. to noon where they encourage everyone to do something challenging, new or unexpected. And why do you think the best innovative companies like Google, Zappos, Facebook, Twitter, etc., keep an incredibly casual work environment? Do you have any other ideas to spur innovation in an organization? Have you ever noticed a great work culture that encourages employees to take risks and innovate?
