TCP to Enlarge Paranaguá Container Terminal Capacity

first_imgzoom TCP, a company responsible for managing the Paranaguá Container Terminal in Brazil, has implemented a new integrated port operation system as part of its growth plan to increase the terminal’s capacity from 1.5 million TEU to 2.5 million TEU by 2018. The investment for the overall system implementation reaches BRL 25 million (USD 7.2 million), according to terminal operating system provider Navis, part of Cargotec Corporation.As part of the new system, the company has adopted Navis N4, which allows internal customization by the information technology team of TCP.“In order for TCP to reach its substantial growth target, a system like N4 is critical to help drive new efficiencies and operational optimization needed to facilitate greater amounts of cargo at the terminal,” Martin Bardi, Senior Director, Latin America Field Operations, Navis, said.Navis said that the migration to the new system is due to the evolution of the infrastructure and processes of the Paranaguá Container Terminal.“With Navis, TCP will achieve improvements over the previous system, including optimizing yard management with the use of automated processes, promoting a more efficient allocation of trucks that transport the containers between the equipment and the ships, and better segregating containers in the yard,” Alexandre Rubio Teixeira Pinto, CFO of TCP, said.The new system was implemented in early October and is already in operation, according to Navis.With the TCP implementation, a total of 14 terminals in Brazil adopted Navis N4.last_img read more

Al Jazeera Media Summit Tackles Digital Media Renaissance

Rabat – Al Jazeera Media Network’s “Future of Media-Leaders” Summit wrapped up Thursday in Doha, Qatar. The two-day summit was the first of its kind in the region. The intent of the summit is to provide a forum for media innovation and transformational strategies in the face of the digital news revolution.Thursday’s discussions revolved around the increased role and undeniable relevance of social media in public news perception. Keynote speaker Mohammed Nanabhai, Deputy CEO at Media Development Investment Fund, acknowledged recent change in the dissemination of information and the evolution of the audience itself. Information used to flow in one direction, from the media provider to the consumer. With the advent of digital technology, however, the flow has become irrevocably and increasingly two-way.“People on social media are now the first ones to cover events such as protests, and that in turn drives media coverage. That coverage then then drives people to take part in these events, which creates even more coverage on social media. It becomes a cycle,” Nanabhai said.Networks have witnessed a decline in their traditional connection to their audience because of social media. Yet, paradoxically, they have found themselves able to reach unheard-of levels of connectivity because of those same social media platforms.Using Apple’s model as an example, Al Jazeera’s executive Director, Yaser Bisher advised, “Put your content in a unique user experience. Understand the triggers that lead your users to go where they do for the information they are seeking. That is where the user experience starts, not when they open the app.”According to founder of South African firm, Thinkst Applied Research, Haroon Meer, there was a concern expressed that, as media organizations create deeper and more complex ties to their digital audience, the chance for “hostile” actors to take advantage of that relationship will increase.In his presentation on cyber security and the broadcast industry, Meer warned in stark terms the threats facing an industry in danger of falling to complacency.  “The threat is real,” Meer said. “Broadcast has been protected almost by accident because you have been hidden on an island, and you’re not anymore. You will be breached. The question is, how will you react?”Al Jazeera’s Mohamed Abuagla, CIO/CTO of Al Jazeer Media Network, advocated a more “holistic” approach to the challenge, “to involving people, processes and technology. To become more transformative, you need to become a service provider,” Abuagla said.Wednesday’s keynote speaker, Paul Lee, Partner and Global Head of Research for the Technology, Media, and Telecommunications (TMT) Industry at Deloitte, chose a less alarmist approach. Emphasizing that the digital renaissance is here to stay, Lee encouraged media operators to embrace the transformation. “It doesn’t have to be them versus us; it can be them and us,” he said. read more

Veteran peace aid official Jan Egeland named as special advisor to Ban

14 March 2007Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today named Jan Egeland as his new Special Adviser, and said that he believes the Norwegian will be able to draw on his more than a quarter century of experience in peace processes and humanitarian operations in his new capacity. “Mr. Egeland will be a valuable asset to the Secretary-General on matters relating to the prevention and resolution of conflict,” Mr. Ban’s spokesperson, Michele Montas, said in a statement announcing the appointment.Mr. Egeland will be working closely with the UN Department of Political Affairs (DPA) to strengthen the Organization’s peacemaking capabilities, she said.One of his tasks as Special Adviser will be to manage a standby team of experts, currently being assembled by DPA as part of its efforts to bolster mediation support capacity, to be dispatched at short notice to support peacemaking efforts worldwide.Most recently, Mr. Egeland, former head of the Norwegian Red Cross and co-initiator and organizer of the Norwegian Channel between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization which paved the way for the 1993 peace agreement between them, served as the Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator from 2003 to 2006.He also directed the Norwegian facilitation of the UN-led peace talks leading up to ceasefire agreement between the Government of Guatemala and the guerrillas, which was signed in Oslo in 1996. He led the host delegation when the Ottawa treaty to ban land mines was successfully negotiated and adopted in Oslo in 1997. Before becoming head of the Norwegian Red Cross, Mr. Egeland was former Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Adviser on Colombia from 1999 to 2002. read more

Ban praises TimorLestes progress and consolidation of its security sector

“Timor-Leste has come a long way. You have much to be proud of,” Mr. Ban said in a press conference which he held jointly with President Taur Matan Ruak following a meeting between the two leaders in Dili, the capital. In May, Timor-Leste celebrated its 10th anniversary since its restoration of independence in 2002. The independence celebrations coincided with the inauguration of Mr. Ruak, who won the presidential elections in April. The country also held parliamentary elections last month, which were largely peaceful and held in an orderly manner, according to observers. “I commend all Timorese for the successful presidential and parliamentary elections earlier this year. The peaceful and orderly process reflects Timor-Leste’s strong commitment to stability, democracy and national unity,” Mr. Ban said. Mr. Ban welcomed the progress made by the country’s security sector, and stressed that they would continue to have the support of the UN once the UN Integrated Mission in Timor-Leste (UNMIT), which is tasked with supporting the Government to consolidate stability and enhance a culture of democratic governance, departs at the end of the year. Mr. Ban also commended Timor-Leste for its contribution of personnel to UN efforts to maintaining peace and security abroad. In May, 17 Timorese police officers passed a rigorous recruitment process to serve as peacekeepers in UN missions abroad. Currently, there are two Timorese police officers serving in the UN operation in Guinea-Bissau. Over the past 10 years, 12 police officers have served as UN peacekeepers in Kosovo and Guinea-Bissau. “For over 16 months, the national police, PNTL, have borne the responsibility for the conduct of all police operations in Timor-Leste. They are not only making a difference here in the country, but around the world. We see that in the form of police and military personnel you are now contributing to UN peacekeeping missions in other parts of the world,” Mr. Ban said. “This is a powerful testament to the growing professionalism and institutional development of your security forces – as well as your commitment to global solidarity,” he added. During his visit, Mr. Ban also visited a police academy, where he spoke to members of the national police force and encouraged them to continue to work to make their country safer and focus on longer-term development after UNMIT’s departure. “The close cooperation between UNMIT police and PNTL has been essential to ensure the continued strengthening of PNTL. We will work with you to address any remaining capacity gaps,” Mr. Ban said. In his address to the national parliament today, Mr. Ban also outlined three areas that policymakers must focus on to advance the country’s progress. These consist of promoting inclusive growth that reduces inequalities, contributing to the promotion of peace and security, and empowering women and young people. “As the UN now reduces its footprint in the country, you are continuing to set a global example of how to successfully emerge from conflict to lasting peace,” Mr. Ban said. “As we shape our new relationship, Timor-Leste can count on the United Nations’ steady support as you lead the way forward.” During his visit Mr. Ban also spoke at the opening of an UNMIT exhibit at the new Museum of the Resistance, and he is scheduled to visit a primary school in Liquiça later today, where he will highlight the role of education for the country’s development. read more

BDO believes there is still a strong future for mining in Africa

first_imgTough times in the mining industry are far from over. However, it is not all doom and gloom, according to Peter Toll, International Liaison Partner at BDO Australia. Toll believes that, “although it will be a tough couple of years post 2016, beyond that there are strong opportunities. I believe there are supply imbalances in certain minerals, mid cap miners with strong positive cash flows will have good opportunities for acquisitions at depressed prices. These companies are more effective at undertaking exploration programmes as a result of the resources at their disposal.”The current downturn in South Africa needs only proper analysis of supply and demand, which would most likely indicate imbalances or future shortage in supplies for most commodities, with the exception of iron ore and potentially oil. If this is found to be the case, this needs to be promoted to make sure markets are aware, and adequate steps can be taken to alleviate the pressures from the downturn.“As seen over the last ten years, it is unlikely that new developments will come to the fore. Financing new developments is tough, with equity markets reluctant to fund new deals and banks tightening up their credit requirements,” according to Toll. “Rather, the focus is really on cost control, efficiencies and potential closure of marginal operations.” Global demand for commodities has decreased significantly from the highs of the boom, and South Africa is facing an overall downturn in mining. Although the role of coal is waning, it will continue to be a significant focus if we are to achieve universal access to energy by 2030. Several countries across Africa are already scaling-up coal-fired power projects in response to power shortages and it is a relief to know that, according to The Africa Progress Panel, two of the world’s largest super-critical coal-fired power stations – Medupi and Kusile – are scheduled to enter commission in South Africa which will increase energy output.With such strong employment rates – both directly and indirectly – and significant royalties and taxes for Government, mining plays a significant role in the economy, a point that is cemented by the relevance of gatherings such as the Investing in African Mining Indaba. This platform “provides a forum for mining participants to mix and generate activity,” says Toll. “This is especially important in harder times to ensure we continue to promote the mining industry and generate deal flow.” Considering the effect of the current economy on the mining industry, “marginal producers need to evaluate their viability as current low prices might make operations uneconomic. The focus has changed from expansion to cost control, to ensure operations remain viable, and with the shortage in minerals we should be expecting future price increases.”Toll advises corporates “to focus on costs, focus on improving efficiencies, and look at opportunities to renegotiate contracts with major suppliers. If you are in a strong financial position, look out for under-priced assets.” He addss: “With the string of compliance services offered by audit firms such as BDO, including local and international tax structuring and transfer pricing, advisory services, due diligence, strategy reviews and development – including cost reviews, the mining industry certainly does have a positive outlook and future.”last_img read more

Sarri admits Eden Hazard is not a leader

first_imgThe Chelsea manager believes that the Belgian footballer has all the qualities of a world-class footballer.Chelsea’s boss Maurizio Sarri is not happy after Chelsea lost 2-0 with Arsenal in the English Premier League.And while he praised Belgian player Eden Hazard, he doesn’t believe he’s a leader.“I don’t know, at this moment he’s more an individual player than a leader,” Sarri told Sky Sports.“He’s important for us, a great player, he always can win the match in two minutes, sometimes in one minute.”“At the moment, he’s not a leader – a great player, one of the best in the world,” he explained.Premier LeaguePremier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league.

I think that he says coaches have told him that he needs to do more. I think he has to do more because the potential is higher than the performances,” Sarri continued saying about Hazard.“So he has to respect, first of all, himself – he has to do more.”“Eden, at the moment, is a wonderful player, but he is an individual player, an instinctive player,” the Italian coach commented.“For him, it’s very difficult to play in only one position. He likes very much to go to the ball, he likes the ball at his feet. But it’s very difficult for him to play as a striker, but also very difficult for him to play as a winger.”last_img read more

first_imgChinese ambassador in Bangladesh Zhang Zuo addresses a press conference in Dhaka on Wednesday. Photo: UNBChina has claimed that they have no ‘personal interest’ in the Rohingya issue rather they are making genuine efforts to help Bangladesh and Myanmar to resolve the issue through friendly negotiations.“China has no personal interest in that issue. We are making genuine efforts to help Bangladesh and Myanmar. Our suggestion is genuine, objective and constructive,” Chinese ambassador in Bangladesh Zhang Zuo told a press conference on Wednesday.The newly appointed envoy said that there is no quick fix to the problem as it is a complicated issue having historical, ethnical and religious background.Ambassador Zuo laid emphasis on continuous friendly interactions on this issue between Bangladesh and Myanmar and finding solutions through bilateral discussion.“We will remain impartial to either side,” he said.He identified poverty as common enemy of the friendly countries and said, “We need to step up our regional cooperation (to eradicate poverty).The Chinese ambassador, who arrived in Dhaka in February, laid emphasis on promoting development to both China-Bangladesh to resolve the issue in Rakhine State.Bangladesh and Myanmar signed a document on 16 January on ‘Physical Arrangement’ to facilitate the return of Rohingyas to their homeland from Bangladesh.The ‘Physical Arrangement’ stipulates that the repatriation will be completed preferably within two years from the start of repatriation.Myanmar has so far verified merely 400 Rohingyas from the list of 8,032 for possible repatriation from Bangladesh to their homeland in Rakhine state.Ambassador Zuo acknowledged the progress made between Bangladesh and Myanmar on repatriation agreement.He said they are urging Myanmar to attach greater importance to address the first repatriation list handed over by the Bangladesh side as soon as possible and receive and settle them at an early date.Mentioning China’s contribution to Bangladesh and Mynamar, ambassador Zuo said as the rainy season approaches, Rohingyas in Bangladesh are facing new challenges. “We are willing to do what we can to help them.”Responding to a question, Zuo said China has a close attention to the development and political situation in Bangladesh.“We hope to see smooth general election in Bangladesh and we hope Bangladesh will have steady development,” he said.The ambassador said China respects the choice made by the Bangladeshi people and hopes that the strategic cooperative partnership between China and Bangladesh will move forward to new scale.The Chinese ambassador said he will do his best to help implement the important consensus on cooperation reached by the leaders from the two countries, and to promote the development of Bangladesh-China strategic partnership in a better way.Since the beginning of 2018, he said, China and Bangladesh have been maintaining frequent high-level exchanges.This year, the envoy said, Bangladesh and China will hold the 12th diplomatic consultation, the second Bangladesh-China dialogue on maritime cooperation, joint working group meeting on China-Bangladesh free trade agreement and the first round of consular consultation, among many other important bilateral events.last_img read more

The state-of-the-art clinical suite offers a soothing patient experience with imagery, sound and light, helping to put patients at ease.The Alexandria VAMC offers comprehensive acute and extended healthcare in areas of medicine, surgery, psychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation, oncology, dentistry, geriatrics and extended care. The VAMC serves a potential veteran population of over 100,000 veterans, including community-based services at Fort Polk, Jennings, Lafayette, Lake Charles and Natchitoches, as well as an active patient roster of over 32,000 patients.Unlike traditional X-rays, MRI does not use ionizing radiation to provide high quality images of the body, and includes contrast detail of soft tissue and anatomic structures like gray and white matter in the brain. While this has allowed applications of MRI technology to expand in the areas of neurology, oncology and cardiology, thus increasing demand for this modality, patient anxiety and motion still remain challenges. An MRI scan takes about 30 minutes, and nearly 35 percent of patients have claustrophobia or some considerable level of anxiety about the machine itself, with about 20 percent requiring repeat scans due to motion during the scan.The Philips Ingenia 1.5T in-bore Ambient Experience MRI installation includes several elements to improve the patient experience:Positive distraction – Minimal clutter, visual imagery and programmable lighting provide a soothing atmosphere with positive distractions for anxious patients;Personalization – Patients personalize their experience by selecting a video theme viewable from inside the MRI from an easy-to-position mirror. Combined with sound (through comfortable headphones), the experience becomes truly immersive and soothing;Information – AutoVoice gently guides patients through the procedure, announcing scan times and table movements, providing information that helps put patients at ease; andReduced acoustic noise – Noise is one of the most uncomfortable parts of an MRI exam for many patients. ComforTone automatically provides up to 80 percent noise reduction.In addition to giving the patients the perception of being in a bigger space and putting them at ease, the Philips Ingenia 1.5T offers enhanced workflow, high-quality images and a fast, comfortable patient setup. The system offers the iPatient platform, which is designed for routine and challenging patients, including large patients, elderly and kyphotic. It offers as much as a 30 percent improvement in throughput, hinged upon the FlexCoverage Posterior coil that provides neck-to-toe coverage without the need for any manual removal or repositioning. FlexStream enables imaging with fewer coils and reduces coil positioning and patient setup time.
