Mapteks Vulcan helps shape Tanami

first_imgNewmont Asia Pacific recently tested the new Vulcan Stope Optimiser on scenarios for the Tanami Operations in the Northern Territory of Australia. Current production comes from the Callie underground orebody. Exploration and feasibility investigations continue as Newmont looks for opportunities to extend the life of the mine. In early 2011 Newmont’s mine planning team used the Vulcan Stope Optimiser, available in Vulcan 8.1, to assess how cut-off grade variations may affect the orebody expansion plans.Newmont is looking to set up a haulage shaft at the Tanami which would allow the operation to reduce the cut-off grade at which stopes are mined. Improving economies of scale, and overcoming haulage and trucking constraints would mean they could extract more material from the mine. Establishing a hoisting shaft for the main Callie orebody is expected to reduce the cut-off grade by around 0.5 g/t. The Stope Optimiser was part of the process to assess the new haul shaft in terms of cut-off grades and volume of ore recovered. A dramatic time improvement was seen in getting results, over a manual design method.The Stope Optimiser was run for a range of cut-off grades and several shape configurations. The results were tabulated in a spreadsheet to obtain expansion factors for tonnes and ounces. These factors were used in the mine schedule to prepare quick estimates for shaft scenarios. “The results were enough to enable us to move on without having to re-design stopes manually’, said Nadine Wetzel, Senior Mine Planning Engineer for Newmont. ‘This is a long project, and we’re still working on it. Getting the information quickly has meant the project has not been delayed. Information from the Vulcan reports can be fed into the mine plans, and used by the geologists as well.’The Stope Optimiser was also run for the Villa orebody, which is a narrow vein type deposit close to the surface. A range of cut-off grades and minimum stoping widths were evaluated. Comparing the results in a spreadsheet helped the mine planning team to get a feel for the continuity of the orebody under a range of assumptions. ‘The benefits of the Stope Optimiser are that it is very quick, its design parameters can be changed very easily and it gives a repeatable result every time with the same parameters. In comparison, if two or three engineers did this manually, different designs would eventuate from the same parameters. And you know that the Stope Optimiser generates the optimum design’, added Wetzel.The current version of the Stope Optimiser is an output of AMIRA’s PRIMO research project. Newmont was involved in sponsoring this project and is now sponsoring AMIRA’s P1037 project which aims to continue development of the Stope Optimiser tool. Newmont is contributing experience and suggestions to the research project team, and looks forward to the results of the next stage.last_img read more

HTC One launch delayed as HTC cant source enough components

first_imgHTC pulled a clever marketing stunt last week. They sent a team to give the queue of press representative waiting for the Galaxy S4 launch hot drinks and $100 coupons for trade-ins against the forthcoming HTC One. The problem is, there’s not actually any stock of HTC One handsets to buy yet.HTC has been forced to delay the launch of its premier smartphone because it can’t get the components required to manufacture the handset in any great quantities. The main problematic components are the metal outer casing and the parts required for the camera. This has meant we now won’t be able to purchase a HTC One until late this month or more likely early April.What’s worrying for the company is the reason why it can’t get parts. According to the Wall Street Journal, HTC is no longer viewed as a tier-one customer. That means other companies are taking priority when it comes to manufacturers and distributors fulfilling orders.Unless HTC can successfully launch and see solid sales of the One, that situation seems unlikely to change. It also doesn’t help that this delay pushes the launch of the HTC One back to roughly the same time stock of the Samsung Galaxy S4 is set to appear. And with Samsung heavily marketing the S4, HTC could get squeezed out of the public’s view.All that being said, the HTC One remains an impressive phone that shouldn’t be dismissed just because HTC is having difficulty getting components. Once available, consumers are going to have a (welcome) tough choice to make.last_img read more

After Chiding Apple Google also Drops Headphone Jack

first_imgStay on target iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro Have More Cameras, More ProblemsApple Arcade Launches Next Week We all had a good laugh last year, when Apple chose to drop the headphone jack on their latest model. Some (like myself) argued that this was not only a good thing, but that it would start a shift in the industry. I don’t want to toot my own horn here, but it seems like I was right.Google’s upcoming Pixel 2 won’t have a headphone jack, opting instead for a single USB-C connector.That’s particularly important because the Pixel line (as the Nexus before it) is meant to be an in-house, top-of-the-line Android phone. Moreover, it’s the standard, a metric by which to judge phones from other manufacturers. It’s likely then, that we’ll see updates to other big names down the line and, eventually, the death of the headphone jack in mobile electronics.The news comes from Evan Blass, a reliable leaker, who ran new details on the phone on VentureBeat, a site that covers the ins-and-outs of Silicon Valley and the tech industry at large. Also listed in the leaks were likely specs for the upcoming Pixel 2.Users can expect a Snapdragon 835 — the same one in other flagship phones like the Samsung Galaxy S8 — as well as 4GB of RAM, either 64 or 128 GB of storage, as well as a 12-megapixel camera. The Pixel 2 will launch in two variants — the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL — which are, essentially normal and super-sized versions of the phone.We should have all the details on the new phone later today. Google will be hosting a conference detailing some of its latest products and what to expect in the coming months.I’m still no Apple fanboy (I can confidently say I’ve never owned nor do I intend to own a Mac, for example), but it is hilarious to see a company that was so intent on slamming its rival for dropping a feature in ads, suddenly shift to doing the exact same thing. Don’t get me wrong, either, I still think it’s a good thing. The headphone jack is an outdated standard that has held us back for years. Yeah, it sucks that we’re all going to have to get new hardware, but that often happens with industry changes. Soon, we’ll have to dump all of our old USB stuff for Type-C. That’s just how tech works.Upgrade or don’t, you don’t need to be an early adopter, but having that steady update to our tech standards is fundamentally a good thing. It, over time, gives us better, more efficient gadgets, faster charging, more security, etc.Dropping the headphone jack for the iPhone 7 not only saved some room and power, but it also helped make the phone water resistant — an excellent feature to have on any portable device. Even better, the lightning connector used for wired headphones now has some serious perks. It can power its own in-line digital-to-analogue converter. That could lead to vastly superior audio quality depending on what exactly you’re using.Anyway, I’m sure most of you will be crushed by this news, but it was going to happen eventually.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

In A Surprising Turn Texas House Opts To Delay Consideration Of Sales

first_img Share Miguel Gutierrez Jr./The Texas TribuneState Rep. Dan Huberty, R-Houston, has tabled House Joint Resolution 3 and the accompanying House Bill 4621, which would ask voters to increase the state sales tax by one penny to buy down school district property taxes.A proposal to pay for long-term school district tax cuts by raising the state sales tax, endorsed by Texas’ top three political leaders, could be dead after the House delayed a vote on it Tuesday.State Rep. Dan Huberty, the top public education leader in the Texas House, tabled until 2021 — the next legislative session — House Joint Resolution 3 and the accompanying House Bill 4621, which would ask voters to increase the state sales tax by one penny to buy down school district property taxes. The Houston Republican’s move came the day after the Senate, headed by a lieutenant governor who had endorsed the proposal, stripped such a provision from its version of the school finance bill in what was perhaps a signal that the measure would be dead in the upper chamber anyway.Despite Tuesday’s postponement, the idea could still be revived this session; lawmakers could use a different bill as a vehicle to fund school district tax cuts.Huberty criticized members of the Senate on Tuesday who “have spent their whole careers calling for property tax relief” but did not vote for the school finance measure the day before. And he repeatedly affirmed questions by House colleagues that suggested state Sen. Paul Bettencourt, the Houston Republican who leads the upper chamber’s property tax committee, had failed to take responsibility for coming up with a viable mechanism for property tax cuts when he was part of a school finance commission last year and during the current legislative session.Bettencourt has arguably been the most vocal GOP senator opposed to the tax swap proposal, a position that has caught some by surprise since he’s closely aligned — both personally and professionally — with Republican Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, who has made clear he supports the measure. Bettencourt marked himself “present, not voting” on the school finance bill Monday, while the majority of the upper chamber approved the legislation. And on Tuesday morning, ahead of business in both chambers, Bettencourt took to Facebook to once again reiterate his opposition to the tax swap, saying there is “simply no need to raise taxes even higher.”In response to House members’ criticisms, Bettencourt said he’s long been clear about his concern that the tax swap proposal could amount to a tax increase. When Huberty proposed that the tax swap devote 80% of the new sales tax revenue to property tax cuts and the remainder to public school funding, for example, “I immediately red-flagged that,” Bettencourt said.“Emotions run high when bills fail,” Bettencourt said. “If you have the votes, pass your bill — don’t blame somebody in the other chamber. That’s just kind of a rule that I’ve learned.”Gov. Greg Abbott, Patrick and House Speaker Dennis Bonnen — considered Texas’ “Big Three” GOP leaders — have in past weeks thrown their full support behind a proposal to pay for long-term decreases in Texans’ tax bills by raising the state sales tax by 1 percentage point, which would raise about $5 billion a year. The proposal had been moving through the Capitol in the form of a joint resolution, which needed two-thirds of each chamber to pass. If the Legislature passed the resolution, the sales tax swap would then land on the November ballot for voters to decide.In a statement Tuesday afternoon, Abbott said through a spokesperson that his office is “continuing to work with the House and Senate to deliver meaningful property tax relief to Texans.” Patrick, meanwhile, said through a spokesperson that the chamber is “looking at other options to increase the size of the property tax cut for taxpayers including our ongoing review of possible cuts in our budget.”Because school districts levy the majority of property taxes in Texas, many lawmakers have been seeking ways to help reduce those portions of Texans’ tax bills. But since the state is required to ensure school districts have enough money to educate students, any effort to cut taxes would have a significant cost — requiring the state to reimburse schools if they’re unable to collect enough from local property taxes.On Tuesday morning, before the House gaveled in for the day, Bonnen told House Republicans during a caucus meeting that there would be no point in bringing up the proposal for a vote in the lower chamber if it was considered dead in the Senate, according to multiple people who were at the gathering. Caucus members at the meeting, according to those sources, largely agreed with Bonnen, who said the Senate stripping such a provision from its version of the school finance bill Monday suggested the upper chamber couldn’t muster enough support to approve a tax swap proposal.After Huberty postponed the tax swap legislation, a Bonnen spokesperson said in a statement that the proposal had been “an opportunity for lawmakers to further reduce property taxes” and sustain tax relief found in the lower chamber’s school finance bill.“Speaker Bonnen believes it is in the House’s best interest to devote the limited time left in session to our Day One priorities — passing legislation to provide meaningful school finance and property tax reform for all Texans,” the statement read.Perhaps the first major public blow to the Big Three’s tax swap proposal happened Friday, when state Rep. Chris Turner, a Grand Prairie Democrat who chairs his party’s caucus, told The Texas Tribune there were more than 60 “hard no” votes from members against it. That is enough opposition to block the House from passing such a constitutional amendment, which requires at least 100 votes in the House. And on Monday evening, the night before Tuesday’s scheduled debate, Turner and several other House Democrats in leadership positions, signed on to a letter addressed to Huberty that made clear they “cannot support HJR 3 or any other proposals to increase the state sales tax.”Democrats’ opposition to the proposal centers on the fact that the sales tax is regressive, meaning it takes a bigger portion of income from poorer Texans than richer ones. An official analysis of the economic impacts of HJR 3, which first circulated Friday, showed that the average Texas household making less than $100,000 would expect to see an increase in its annual tax bill. The average household making $100,000 and up would see a lighter annual tax bill.The future of the sales tax proposal, which state leaders first endorsed in April, appeared especially fraught after the Senate signaled it was backing away from the idea during a debate on its school finance legislation, House Bill 3. That bill originally included billions of dollars in mechanisms to cut school district taxes, contingent on a form of long-term funding, such as the percentage-point increase in the sales tax. State Sen. Larry Taylor, R-Friendswood, the school finance bill’s author, instead stripped the sales tax swap from HB 3.Instead, the upper chamber voted to create a Tax Reduction and Excellence in Education Fund to pay to lower school district taxes. A Senate working group came up with a plan to get about $3 billion from a few sources, without raising taxes, including diverting money from the severance tax on oil and gas extraction and collecting money from an online sales tax.Taylor said that could pay to lower school district taxes statewide by 10 cents per $100 valuation, saving the owner of a $250,000 home about $250 a year.“The bill before us today has no linkage to the sales tax and is not contingent upon a sales tax,” he told fellow senators Monday, hours before he successfully moved to pass the school finance bill.Beyond the tax swap proposal, Huberty told reporters Tuesday after delivering his remarks that he’s still hopeful the two chambers can reach a compromise on the school finance bill. He also said he supported some of the Senate’s other ideas for long-term revenue to cut school taxes.This piece was originally published in The Texas Tribune, a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans — and engages with them — about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues. last_img read more

Video Game Sequels That Didnt Deserve to Be Made

first_imgStay on target The Goonies IIThe Goonies is a bad movie that is beloved for dumb Gen-X reasons. It doesn’t deserve the love. And it definitely didn’t deserve a pretty decent NES Metroidvania tie-in that advertises itself as a sequel.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Red Steel 2The launch of the Nintendo Wii and its revolutionary motion controls was almost dreamlike. And Red Steel offered the ultimate gamer dream of precise gun and sword gameplay (as well as the dream of being a white dude killing Yakuza to rescue his Japanese girlfriend). The dream was a lie, but the game did well enough to get a sequel that was barely connected and also much better thanks to a killer art style and improved motion controls. Bionic Commando 2009The original Bionic Commando is an NES classic. It introduced countless players to the simple joys of a grappling hook. Plus you could blow up Hitler’s head. So obviously we needed a gritty grey 2009 reboot starring a white dude with dreadlocks mourning over his dead wife, whose soul lives on in his bionic arm. Really. Trade In Your Nintendo Switch For a Better Battery (With a Catch)Get Used to ‘Fortnite’s’ Powerful Mech Suits Resident Evil 6The Resident Evil series has had its ups and downs. And Resident Evil 5 was a step down from 4. But even that racist game seems like gold compared to the loud, bloated mess that was Resident Evil 6. Any pretense of horror was thrown out for dumb cinematic action, bad shooting, and a story that had nowhere to go since Wesker was taken off the board. It took the complete reboot Resident Evil 7 to fix this disaster. God of War AscensionGod of War III ends with Kratos murdering the Greek gods, and then himself, after unleashing hope on the world. God of War 2018 continues his story in a land of Norse mythology while he raises his son. But in the meantime we also got a pointless prequel because the PS3 needed another big game at the end of its extended life cycle. Bomberman Act ZeroBomberman Act Zero is like a parody of awful design trends from the beginning of the Xbox 360 era. It took a colorful classic Japanese gaming mascot and turned him into an awful generic 1990s aggro dude-bro Master Chief clone. And it also ruined the gameplay. We wouldn’t blame you for thinking this game is a hoax. Star Wars Battlefront IIThe first (well, third) Star Wars Battlefront was a pretty but empty game, clearly rushed to coincide with The Force Awakens and make a bunch of cash. There was room to grow with a sequel. But while Battlefront II did add more content like a decent single-layer campaign, any goodwill paled in comparison to the sheer ire it drew from players, and government officials, with its gross free-to-play mechanics. Final Fantasy XII-2 and 3We don’t blame Square Enix for making direct sequels to Final Fantasy XIII. Like many Japanese devs, they were blindsided by HD development. And they spent so much time and money making FFXIII they had to make some cash back with recycled assets. Plus, Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII are just hilarious names for video games. Video games, like all big media these days, love sequels. Why sell just one game when you can sell countless games in one (or several!) beloved franchise? And some of the best games of all time are sequels that build on the work of their predecessors. They make improvements without having to throw out everything that already works. There are tons of games we’d love to see get sequels.But not all sequels are created equally. Some sequels just should not have been made. Sometimes it’s a bad sequel that doesn’t live up to the legacy of the original. Or other times it’s a great game that’s still inexplicable because it’s the sequel to a bad game nobody was asking for. Whatever the reason, these are video game sequels that didn’t deserve to get made.Rage 2The reason we were so shocked to see Rage 2 leak out of Wal-Mart Canada is because no one ever needed a follow-up to Rage. At one point the next big thing from iD, Rage was technically impressive but didn’t make nearly the same impact as Doom or Quake. Fortunately, the sequel seems much more promising, leveraging Avalanche’s Mad Max post-apocalypse development talents as well as the near-perfect shooting of Doom 2016. Gears of War JudgmentEverything I just said about God of War Ascension also applies to Gears of War Judgment. Just swap out some proper nouns. Even the acronyms are close enough. Metal Gear SurviveMetal Gear Solid is one of the greatest sagas of video games, a single narrative with roots in the NES days tackling everything from nuclear deterrents to nations’ disregard for soldiers to the grave threat of tanks with legs. And each time it also delivered best in class stealth gameplay. So of course after unceremoniously firing MGS mastermind Hideo Kojima publisher Konami turned the franchise into a bland and boring zombie survival game.last_img read more

Derrick Hall satisfied with Dbacks buying and se

first_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Edgerrin James – 2006 – 4 years, $30 millionThe Cardinals were moving into a brand new stadium, and with money to burn landed one of the biggest stars available. With the Colts in 2005, James ran for 1,506 yards and 13 touchdowns while also catching 44 passes for 337 yards and one score, and adding him to an offense that already had Warner and receivers Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald seemed to be a great idea.“OK, it’s a risk,” James admitted at the time. “But hey, I’m a poker player. You can take it to the river. I’m not scared to make a change. I’m not scared to go out on a limb and try something different.”James’ first season in Arizona was OK, as he ran for 1,159 yards and six touchdowns. He was the first Cardinal to eclipse the 1,000-yard rushing mark since Adrian Murrell in 1998, and if nothing else, Edge heading to Arizona was a sign that the Cardinals were ready to compete for some of the NFL’s better and most sought after players.Emmitt Smith – 2003 – 2 years, $8 millionLet’s call it like it was: The Cardinals wanted some publicity and a boost in ticket sales, so they did what it took to sign a future Hall of Famer who just so happened to be a popular player with a former division rival. Mike Iupati – 2015 – 5 years, $40 millionThe Cardinals had won 11 games the previous season but were ravaged by injuries, including at the quarterback position. So, in an effort to help bolster the offensive line, the team went and signed Pro Bowl guard Mike Iupati away from the division rival San Francisco 49ers.“I really think that Arizona has a really good shot [at a Super Bowl],” Iupati told Burns and Gambo on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM shortly after joining the Cardinals. “I really think they have a really good team … they have a great organization and great coaches, so I’m excited.“There was a lot of teams [who made offers], but I didn’t think of Arizona until they really tried.”Iupati was coming off three straight trips to the Pro Bowl, and while he wasn’t seen as a great pass blocker, he was regarded as being excellent in the run game and the possible missing piece to a championship puzzle.In terms of the kind of impact Iupati made, while plenty more than just his play goes into it, the Cardinals did improve from 3.3 yards per carry in 2014 to 4.2. In 2015, QB Carson Palmer was protected well enough to start all 16 games and lead the Cardinals to the NFC Championship Game. Last season Arizona averaged 4.3 yards per run, though much of that can be attributed to how exceptional running back David Johnson played. Seth Joyner – 1994 – 5 years, $14 millionThere was a good amount of buzz surrounding the Cardinals in 1994 after they tabbed Buddy Ryan to be their head coach and general manager. A big name and even bigger personality, Ryan came to the Cardinals intent on upgrading their defense and turning the team into the kind of winner it had never been.The first part of that goal, anyway, was accomplished in year one in large part due to free agency. After inking former Philadelphia Eagle Clyde Simmons to a five-year, $14.5 million contract, the Cardinals were then able to lure in former Eagle linebacker Seth Joyner. The two shared the same agent, Jim Solano.“Clyde and I are pretty much best friends,” Joyner said at the time. “When we sat down early in the season, we pretty much knew what the situation was going to be, Clyde and I and Jim. We talked about different scenarios — Clyde and I being together, Clyde and I being separated. It was always a high priority for us to be together.”A Pro Bowler in 1993 after amassing 113 tackles, two sacks and one interception, Joyner was an impact player in Arizona with six sacks to go along with 38 tackles and three interceptions. He made the Pro Bowl in 1994, and amassed six sacks over the next two years with the Cardinals. Simmons, by the way, collected six sacks in 1994 and then 11 in 1995. Regardless, since signing with Arizona Iupati has been a quality player for the Cardinals, and at 29 likely still has many good years left in him. On March 9, the Arizona Cardinals will be able to start signing free agents.Comparable to last season, the team has significantly more apparent holes to fill, though guessing what positions they will seek to address and which players they would prefer to add is anyone’s guess.Except ours, because we’re not going to even attempt to try.Sorry if that disappoints you, but it’s not like we’re going to leave you with nothing.center_img Top Stories 0 Comments   Share   How does a trip down memory lane sound? Good? Excellent.In this edition of “The 5” we will look at five of the most notable free agent signings in Cardinals history, with the additions being chosen due to various factors, including name recognition, performance and overall impact.Kurt Warner – 2005 – 1 year, $4 millionOn This Day in 2005: A future member of the @ProFootballHOF came to the Valley, as @Kurt13Warner signed with your #AZCardinals! pic.twitter.com/BWLsjGBPPN— Arizona Cardinals (@AZCardinals) March 6, 2017The fanfare surrounding Warner signing with the Cardinals had more to do with what Warner used to be than what anyone thought he would do for his new team. The veteran was coming off a one-year stint with the New York Giants that saw him lose the starting job to Eli Manning, and was set to take the reigns in Arizona with Josh McCown as his backup.Warner’s first season in the desert was an uneven one, with the Cardinals winning just two of the 10 games he started and the QB passing for 2,713 yards with 11 touchdowns, nine interceptions and six lost fumbles.Despite that, Warner and the Cardinals decided to continue their relationship into the future, as he signed a three-year contract extension the following offseason. Though he had his issues in 2006, too, it’s safe to say things ultimately worked out for both sides, as he went on to lead the Cardinals to consecutive NFC West titles in 2008 and 2009 as well as Super Bowl XLIII. One of the greatest running backs of all time, Smith was 33 and coming off a season in which he failed to reach the 1,000-yard mark for the first time since 1990, his rookie year. His 3.8 yards per carry was also his lowest average since 1996, and his best days were clearly behind him.It’s why the Dallas Cowboys decided to cut the NFL’s all-time leading rusher. The Cardinals, however, were very willing to bring him into the fold.“I know what Emmitt has conveyed to me,” then Cardinals coach Dave McGinnis said. “He knows what he has left. He believes he can be a contributor. He will be a very valuable member of this organization, on and off the field.”The back’s first season in Arizona was a rough one, with him running for just 256 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games before suffering a broken shoulder blade against, coincidentally, the Dallas Cowboys. His second season with the Cardinals was better, with him notching 937 yards and nine touchdowns while also throwing his first career touchdown pass.While his on-field production was nothing to remember, Smith did bring some level of credibility to the organization, and his leadership cannot be discounted.

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletterMSC Cruises has confirmed at its coin ceremony for MSC Meraviglia it intends to build a further two ships in the Meraviglia class. The two Meraviglia-Plus next-generation ships, as the new class of vessels is called, will feature increased tonnage and overall size, with a total of 2444 cabins and a maximum LSA of 8000. The two new units will now be due for delivery respectively in October 2019 and September 2020.Held at the STX France shipyard, the coin ceremony presented the opportunity to showcase the progress made on the work of MSC Meraviglia, which will come into service in June 2017.Pierfrancesco Vago, MSC Cruises Executive Chairman commented: “The two Meraviglia-Plus vessels will be even larger and longer as well as richer in features and amenities, thus confirming MSC Cruises as the industry’s boldest innovator when it comes to ship design and experiences we create for our guests.”At 331 metres long and with the addition of 200 more cabins, the two ships will feature a maximum capacity of nearly 6300 guests. They will also be able to call at a wide range of cruise ports around the world.In another MSC Cruises industry-first, the two Meraviglia-Plus ships will feature the first and only classic and contemporary fine art museum at sea.MSC Cruises also announced that MSC Meraviglia will be christened in Le Havre, France.Mr Vago added: “Standing here at the STX France shipyard for the coin ceremony for the 11th time is a reflection of how strong our ties are with France, which is where all the ships of our current fleet were built. This makes MSC Cruises, when it comes to export contracts, the number one foreign private investor in France – having invested over €8 billion over the period – and one of the leading overall investors.”“For this reason, I am proud to announce that MSC Meraviglia could not but be christened in France, in the beautiful UNESCO-listed port of Le Havre on 1 June 2017. From there, it will then set forth for its inaugural season to be spent in the Mediterranean, homeporting in another French port, Marseille.”The two new ships will be worth €1.6 billion, thus bringing MSC Cruises’ investment for the two Meraviglia plus the two Meraviglia-Plus ships to a total of €3 billion.Go back to the e-newsletterlast_img read more

Progress depends on Turkey says Anastasiades

first_imgProgress at the conference on Cyprus, scheduled to start in Switzerland on June 28, depended on Turkey, said President Nicos Anastasiades on Sunday.Speaking at a memorial service for fighters of Spilia-Kourdalia, Anastasiades said that everything depended on Turkey’s will on the issues of security, guarantees and territory.Regarding the Conference that will be held at the Swiss resort Crans-Montana, Anastasiades believed negotiations on security and guarantees had to be structured in accordance to international law, to ensure the full independence of an EU Member State.“Therefore, any conditions set, I do not think they are helping us in what we are seeking to achieve,” Anastasiades said.Above all, he said, goodwill is necessary “especially from those who are primarily responsible for key issues such as guarantees, security, territorial adjustments, etc.”If there was goodwill there would be a good result, Anastasiades said, putting full responsibility for the outcome of the conference on Turkey.The conference, he said, could not deal with anything other than issues pertaining to the participants, namely the three guarantors, the two communities, the Republic of Cyprus and the EU. He added that parallel talks on the other issues would not begin on the same date as the negotiations on security.Commenting on the recent statements of the Turkish Cypriot side that the Greek Cypriot position for zero guarantees and zero troops would lead to a stalemate, Anastasiades said that all sides should show restraint in view of the fact that the Switzerland talks are drawing closer.“We are going to Switzerland determined to negotiate so that we can reach a solution that is acceptable to both communities, based on a number of alternative suggestions that can satisfy everyone’s sense of security” he said.UN Special Advisor Espen Barth Eide is working on the drafting of a document which would be a guideline for the discussions on the security and guarantees chapter. It is expected to incorporate each side’s respective position on the issue as outlined in Geneva and Mont Pelerin.Anastasiades is scheduled to meet on Wednesday the European Council President Donald Tusk in Brussels on the sidelines of the EU Summit.  According to CNA they are to discuss developments in the Cyprus talks ahead of the Conference in Switzerland, Euro-Turkish relations and the Brexit negotiations.A National Council meeting, at which Anastasiades will brief party leaders ahead of the conference is scheduled for Monday.The Conference on Cyprus in which the two communities and the three guarantor powers will participate – the EU will have observer status – and will reconvene in Crans-Montana on June 28, is considered the critical, final phase of the current UN peace process which began in May 2015.You May LikeMemory Care | Search AdsLuxury Memory Care Facilities Near Rowland Heights For SeniorsMemory Care | Search AdsUndoFigLeaf Beta AppTake Online Privacy on a whole New levelFigLeaf Beta AppUndoLuxury SUVs | Search AdsLuxury SUVs For SeniorsLuxury SUVs | Search AdsUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
