Nicaragua Canal route unveiled

first_imgHLPFI reported in its Friday Flyer on January 17, 2014 that Nicaraguan president Daniel Ortega and HKND chief executive Wang Jing had revealed that the project would go ahead in December 2014. Both parties still stand by this start date.The route is expected to stretch 278 km from the mouth of the Brito River, which connects the Pacific to Lake Nicaragua, to the Punta Gorda river on the Caribbean. The proposed dimensions of the Nicaragua Canal are between 230 m and 520 m wide, with a depth of 27.6 m.The industry is rife with speculation over the likelihood of the canal going ahead, however, which has been heightened by the never-ending obstacles that the consortium in charge of the Panama Canal expansion project seems to be coming up against.Wang Jing has also not yet revealed which investors are backing the project.If the canal is competed it should be able to hander larger vessels than its rival canal in Panama.Reports in the international media suggest that there are already engineers in Nicaragua working on the project, and HLPFI will continue to follow its progress.www.hknd-group.comlast_img read more

first_imgINTRO: PublicationsTHIS ’beginner’s guide to rail freight’ from the Association of Community Rail Partnerships is intended to offer a guide to ways in which communities can help to get freight traffic onto rail, translating a ’vague idea into a practical project’.The 48-page booklet is aimed at non-specialist readers, particularly those involved in community rail partnerships (RG 12.05 p785). According to ACoRP General Manager Dr Paul Salveson, ’many people think it is really easy to put in a siding and start running freight trains. This isn’t so, and the guide offers a reality check to schemes which may, on the surface, seem like a good idea.’ú10 from ACoRP, Rail & River Centre, Civic Hall, 15a New Street, Slaithwaite, Huddersfield, HD7 5AB, UKdawn@acorp.uk.comlast_img read more

La Plaine constituency’s Christmas gift

first_img Share 784 Views   no discussions Share Share Tweetcenter_img Sharing is caring! Vehicular access to Boetica and Delices has been restored, four months following the passage of Tropical Storm Erika.Heavy rainfall during the storm completely destroyed the Boetica bridge and left a huge gorge.Attempts to build a temporary bypass and install a bailey bridge donated by the St Vincent and the Grenadines government, proved to be a challenge due to the nature of the gorge and continued rainfall.During the process of installing a temporary bypass and the bridge, residents were forced to use a zip line, installed across the gorge.“This year’s Christmas holds special significance for the La Plaine Constituency as access to Boetica and Delices was finally achieved,” Parliamentary representative for that constituency, Petter Saint Jean wrote on Facebook on 24 December.“It was a long, rough road but we made it through. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL,” he added.“The Government of Dominica is proud to announce the opening of the Boetica Gorge Bailey Bridge. We are committed to serving our people. Merry Christmas to all,” Minister for Tourism and Urban Renewal, Senator Robert Tonge posted on Facebook.Video courtesy Senator Robert Tonge’s Facebook page: Video Playerhttps://www.dominicavibes.dm/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/mp46.mp400:0000:0000:29Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.

Weightlifter Miyake sets records in taking silver

first_img GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 “It’ll take some time to catch up with Chinese lifters but this result is a confidence boost for me because I lifted 20 more kilograms than I did one year ago,” said Miyake, who usually competes in the 53-kg category.“I decided to take part in the 48-kg class this time two days ago because I needed to lose just one kilogram,” she added.Earlier, Erika Kojima won silver in the women’s nanquan of wushu for Japan’s first medal in the nine-day Games that began Saturday. Kojima earned 9.62 points, 0.13 points behind winner Huang Yanhui of Macao.In other action, diver Ken Terauchi took bronze in the men’s 3-meter springboard and the Japanese crew finished third in the men’s 500-meter dragon boat final.Elsewhere, Japan advanced to the finals in both the men’s and women’s soft tennis team tournaments while its women’s hockey team beat South Korea 2-1 in the preliminary round.

Bracketologist drops Cards post-Jones; UK holds

first_imgCBS Sports “Bracketologist” Jerry Palm dropped Louisville’s basketball team a seed line in his projections this week. As for whether he’ll move the Cardinals down more depends on how they perform without starting point guard Chris Jones, dismissed from the team Sunday. In a new bracket published Monday, Palm lists U of L as the No. 5 seed in his East Region, down from a No. 4 in the Midwest Region last week.He cited an injury to Purdue’s Robbie Hummel in 2010 as one case in which a team lost significant seeding after losing one player. But the bracket expert wrote that, “Typically, where roster issues are involved, the committee will put a little more weight on how a team did with the roster a team is taking into the tournament than otherwise, but they don’t overdo that.“Rarely is there more than a one-seed line difference between what the profile might merit and the actual seed.…We’ll see how Louisville performs without Jones. So far, the Cardinals have lost the one game he missed when he was suspended. That was at Syracuse.” Kentucky remained the No. 1 overall seed, projected to open the NCAA tournament with a pair of games at the KFC Yum! Center, in projections by both Palm and ESPN’s Joe Lunardi. ESPN’s Bracketology left U of L, as of Monday, as the Midwest’s No. 4 seed. Palm likes Indiana as the East’s No. 7 seed, whereas Lunardi lists the Hoosiers as the No. 8 in the South, quite a difference with the 8 on pace to play a third-round game against the region’s top seed. The 7 gets the 2 seed. Both experts tab the Ohio Valley Conference’s Murray State as a No. 13 seed at this point — Palm with the Racers in the South and Lunardi with them in the West.last_img read more

Southampton ‘a very interesting transfer option’ as situation changes slightly

first_imgSeveral players could be impacted and Mundo Deportivo say one is Paco Alcacer. If Barcelona don’t sign an attacker this summer than it could mean that Alcacer doesn’t have to leave, although it’s stated there’s a ‘very interesting transfer option’ in Southampton for the player.On Thursday, Sport, another Catalan newspaper, covered reported Southampton interest and stated Barcelona want ‘a minimum of €30m’ which sounds rather on the ambitious aside.Southampton interest, or at least reports of it, has been around for some time and it’s unclear whether the club are continually linked through a force of habit, or whether there’s anything genuine in the claims.Mundo Deportivo believe there could be something in it, and the story is likely to rumble on.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia我們現正尋找希望使用市面上最新幾乎隱形的助聽器的香港試用者。限50歲以上*聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoDash Living Hong KongServiced Apartments in Prime Districts – from HK$10,000 / MonthDash Living Hong KongUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!
