Following last week‘s order for two very large crude carriers (VLCC) placed with South Korean shipyard Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME), Oman Shipping Company is set on growing its fleet further.“The new additions to OSC’s VLCC fleet will be among the most technically advanced in the world,” OSC’s CFO and acting CEO Michael Jorgensen said. “They will form a key part of our expansion plan over the coming years as we prepare for further investment in oil and product carriers in 2019/2020, particularly in the bulk and container market.”Jorgensen added that the key elements of the next generation design of the two VLCCs include highly-efficient engine and fuel-saving technologies. They will also be outfitted with open loop scrubbers addressing the new SOX, NOX environmental regulations effective from January 1, 2020.“The investment comes as OSC continues to report strong growth following long-term deals with local refineries and traders. Our crude oil and product vessel portfolio accounts for more than half of the company’s national fleet. The latest expansion is a further reflection of the significant upturn in liquid cargoes, including crude, refined petroleum fuels and petrochemicals, being generated by Oman’s largely hydrocarbon-centric economy,” Jorgensen continued.“Much of the recent growth has been underpinned by major industrial and petrochemical clusters established at Sohar, Salalah and Duqm. Recent investments in mega refining and petrochemicals schemes in these clusters well for the further growth of OSC’s shipping capacity.”OSC’s fleet of 49 vessels includes 16 VLCCs, 17 product tankers and 4 chemical carriers.Image Courtesy: Oman Shipping Company (OSC)
LifeSiteNews 24 February 2015Britain’s House of Commons rejected a bill aiming to ban sex-selective abortion on Monday in a vote of 292-201.The lower chamber passed the bill at first reading on November 4, but yesterday lawmakers instead approved a measure calling for an inquiry into the prevalence of gender-based abortion in Wales, England, and Northern Ireland.Tory MP Fiona Bruce’s landmark Abortion (Sex-Selection) Bill sought to clarify “that nothing in section one of the Abortion Act 1967 allows a pregnancy to be terminated on the grounds of the sex of the unborn child.”Bruce’s bill was strongly opposed by labor unions and some Labor Party politicians on the grounds that bill would “divide communities.”A letter circulated to Labor MPs by the Trade Union Congress (TUC) said that banning sex selective abortions might leave women “vulnerable to domestic abuse,” and that “the amendment does not attempt to address the root causes of deeply entrenched gender discrimination but rather has divided communities.”https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/uk-parliament-rejects-ban-on-gendercide-abortions
The under-fire president of France’s ice skating federation Didier Gailhaguet resigned on Saturday over his handling of accusations that a former national coach raped a top skater when she was in her teens. Gailhaguet finally bowed to pressure from France’s sports minister to step down after former world championship medallist Sarah Abitbol accused coach Gilles Beyer of sexually assaulting her. Didier Gailhaguet had been under intense pressure to resign following claims that a coach raped a skater in her teens “In the spirit of conciliation, I took the sensible decision to resign with philosophy, dignity but no bitterness,” Gailhaguet, 66, announced after a meeting of the federation’s federal council in Paris. In an autobiography published last month, Abitbol alleged Beyer raped her several times from 1990 to 1992 when she was between the ages of 15 and 17. That claim led to accusations from other skaters. Helene Godard accused Beyer and another coach Jean-Roland Racle of sexual abuse when she was a minor. Loading… French Sports Minister Roxana Maracineanu Abitbol was unimpressed at Gailhaguet’s resignation, telling French news magazine L’Obs that “the entire federation where he had friends still has to be cleaned out”. “Those who remained quiet and supported his system are still there,” she added. A lawyer representing Beyer says his client is prepared to talk to prosecutors investigating claims of sexual abuse of minors. On Gailhaguet’s watch, Beyer, already Abitbol’s coach, took over as manager of the French national team. There were previous complaints of inappropriate behaviour, and in 2000 an inquiry led the sports ministry to remove Beyer from his technical role at the federation, but he remained a coach at one of France’s top skating clubs. Beyer held an executive position at the federation until 2018. Gailhaguet’s long period at the helm of French ice skating, which began in 1998 was interrupted by a three-year international ban following a judging scandal at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics .

Maryvonne Del Torchio, who heads the federation’s council, will take over as president in a caretaker capacity. Before the scandal erupted French ice skating’s reputation had already been tarnished by an investigation into US-based skater Morgan Cipres for allegedly sending lewd photographs to a 13-year-old girl. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Former skater Sarah Abitbol made the claims about coach Gilles Beyer in a newly-published autobiography Sports daily L’Equipe reported that the mother of another young skater claimed that Beyer sexually harassed and blackmailed her in 2017 and 2018 in return for coaching her daughter. Gailhaguet had initially refused calls from Sports Minister Roxana Maracineanu to move aside, saying on Wednesday that he had “absolutely not protected Gilles Beyer” and protesting that he had found out about “90 percent of these incidents in the press and in a book… 10 days ago”. – ‘Dictatorship’ – In announcing his resignation, Gailhaguet hit out at “the ministerial dictatorship and in particular the shameful threat of withdrawing support” from the federation made by Maracineanu. The minister herself hailed Gailhaguet’s departure as “a first step”. “There is no other solution than to knock things down to rebuild again,” she said, adding: “We owe it to the victims.” Promoted Content6 Extreme Facts About Hurricanes14 Hilarious Comics Made By Women You Need To Follow Right NowCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayBest Car Manufacturers In The WorldWhy Do So Many Digital Assistants Have Feminine Names & Voices?What Is A Black Hole In Simple Terms?Which Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?A Hurricane Can Be As Powerful As 10 Atomic BombsEvery Movie Starring Sylvester Stallone From Best To Worst7 Universities Where Getting An Education Costs A Hefty PennyMeghan And Harry’s Royal Baby: Everything You Need To Know8 Things That Will Happen If An Asteroid Hits Earth
Another factor could be the parents’ lack of interest in how theirchildren were faring in school, said Bermejo. Frustration reading level is a stage where “readers find readingmaterials so difficult that they cannot successfully respond to them.” According to Bermejo, majority of the frustration level readers inIloilo were between Grade 1 and Grade 6. In the Philippine Informal Reading Inventory Manual – a readingassessment tool of the Department of Education (DepEd) – there are threereading levels. These are the frustration level, instructional level andindependent level. How? The family’s socioeconomic status may also be a factor, saidBermejo. Learners from poor families were likely to miss classes more often tohelp their parents make a living. ILOILO – In this province which has almost half a millionlearners, an estimated 42,000 from kindergarten to high school are considered“frustration level” readers. “They can recognize some words but they lackcomprehension,” according to Dr. Roel Bermejo, superintendent of the IloiloSchools Division. “Posible indimatutokan sang teacher ang mga kabataanilabi pa kon madamo sila sa classroom,” said Defensor./PN Some of these learners may be special children with special needsbut enrolled in regular classes. Under the instructional reading level, readers profit the mostfrom teacher-directed instruction in reading while under the independentreading level, readers function on their own with almost perfect oral readingand excellent comprehension. DepEd’s goal is to improve the reading comprehension of these learners. There are 987 public elementary schools and 179 public secondaryschools in the province. READING BLUES. Majority of the frustration level readers in Iloilo are between Grade 1 and Grade 6. Some of these learners may be special children with special needs. The family’s socioeconomic status may also be a factor. Learners from poor families are likely to miss classes more often to help their parents make a living. IAN PAUL CORDERO/PN Gov. Arthur Defensor Jr. said the provincial government is readyto help the Iloilo Schools Division improve the reading comprehension oflearners such as getting more remedial reading teachers. There were many factors why this was so, he stressed. He also did not discount the possibility that overcrowding inclassrooms may also be a factor in the poor reading comprehension of learners. The frustration level readers must become instructional levelreaders and eventually independent level readers. According to Bermejo, they are starting with the teachers both inelementary and high school – they are being trained how to conduct remedialreading classes.
