I’ve said sorry to the lads and to the fans. I think I should have just Cruyff’d him to be honest with you but it’s not really my style!AdvertisementAdvertisement‘Daryl’s played the ball back to me and I’ve just tried to just drag it onto my left and hit it out wide and before I know it he’s bloody on me, God he’s fast. Fair play to him, he’s absolutely rapid.‘I was walking off the pitch there speaking to Bernd Leno and he said ‘it’s not your fault, he’s too quick!’ and I totally agree, it’s a good goal to be honest.‘With hindsight with players like Aubameyang, you’ve got to just get rid as quick as you can, you know he’s gonna be on you, it’s not the time to mess about. Just shell it even if it goes into row Z.‘I’m definitely not a modern goalie, I’m happy to put it in row Z, they can’t score from row Z. I just thought I’d probably had a little more time than I did and got a bit slow and lazy with it.‘Lesson learned, next time I’ll put my boot through it.’More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

MOL Develops VR Tool to Prevent Onboard Accidents

first_imgzoom Japan-based Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has developed a mariner safety education tool goggle – using virtual reality (VR) technology – to help eliminate industrial accidents. Created by Tsumiki Seisaku, the tool relies on VR technology to replicate various training scenarios and work operations, which have been a difficult task until now, offering a new level of realism and immersion.As explained, the tool works on easily portable VR goggles, which make it possible for seafarers to train safely regardless of location, onboard or in an office or a training center.“This tool will increase seafarers’ safety awareness and contribute to the elimination of onboard industrial accidents caused by unsafe behavior in actual operation by using VR technology and defining safety measures,” MOL said in a statement.Initially, the training content focuses on preventing accidental falls, a major cause of injuries, and will be expanded to cover other training needs.MOL intends to introduce the tool to more vessels while expanding the range of simulated experiences to provide more training in onboard safety.What is more, the company and Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding (MES) have been jointly developing practical use applications and commercialization of the next-generation ship management support system and the current data collection and monitoring systems, providing the basis for a new system.According to MOL, this initiative will allow enhanced operating support from shore-side systems and personnel. The two companies are working to reduce the environmental impact of vessel operation by preventing problems and reducing the oil consumption, such as bunker fuel oil, which in turn cuts exhaust emissions.last_img read more

Aecon Group receives approval to rejoin Gordie Howe bridge consortium

first_imgTORONTO – Aecon Group Inc. says it has received approval to rejoin the group selected as the preferred proponent to build and operate the Gordie Howe International Bridge.Aecon’s request to rejoin its partners as part of the Bridging North America team was approved following a review by the Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority, the Crown corporation responsible for the project.The consortium, which also includes ACS Infrastructure Canada Inc., Dragados Canada Inc. and Fluor Canada, was selected as the preferred proponent for the project in July.Aecon was initially part of the group but pulled out in May as it was undergoing a federal review about a proposed takeover by a Chinese state-owned company that was ultimately blocked by the Canadian government.Before the takeover by China Communications Construction Company was rejected, the federal government had reportedly decided that Aecon couldn’t work on the bridge for security reasons and opposition from the U.S. administration.The group’s plan for the bridge calls for a six-lane, 2.5-kilometre cable-stayed design. The cost, design details and expected construction schedule are expected to be announced once the contract has been awarded and signed in September.Companies in this story: (TSX:ARE)last_img read more

Economy suffered due to PM’s reckless decisions, says Cong

first_imgNew Delhi: The Congress Saturday alleged mismanagement of the economy by the government and that it has suffered due to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “reckless” decisions.Senior Congress spokesperson Anand Sharma said that in the past five years, India’s economy is “gasping” instead of “galloping”. “The government is destroying the credibility of Indian data by embellishing the data, fudging numbers and inflating figures. The fact is that there has been an monumental mismanagement of Indian economy under his watch. It is not galloping economy but a gasping economy, a struggling economy which has also suffered because of the reckless decision of Prime Minister Modi,” he told reporters. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’The Congress leader claimed that Modi has to be held accountable for destroying tens of millions of jobs by demonetisation. “He has to answer for a hasty imposition of a flawed GST model which he claimed to be ‘one nation, one tax’, but it is one nation, five taxes which excludes 45 per cent of the revenue, making Indian GST the most burdensome most complex,” he said. Sharma said the four engines of the Indian economy — investment, manufacturing, exports and capital formation — were down. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K”How can you keep on claiming that we are the fastest growing (economy) by not creating jobs but by destroying them. There is a huge contradiction. This economy is not creating jobs. Exports have stagnated for five years, manufacturing has gone down, gross fixed capital formation has remained hovering over zero. National investment rate has fallen. These are the facts. The government has gone into heavy borrowing,” he told reporters. Sharma also alleged that the country has played with the credibility of the country’s data. “Fudging of the data is not going to help. NITI Aayog’s job is not meant to embellish numbers and fudge the country’s data. The prime minister and his government has played with the credibility of the country’s data. They have dented the credibility,” he said. “The time has come to punish the PM and his govt for destroying the credibility of Indian data, embellish the data, fudging numbers and inflating figures. The fiscal deficit has reached an alarming point. These are the questions to the prime minister,” he said. He said if the Congress comes to power after the April-May parliamentary election, it would scrap the NITI Aayog and bring back the Planning Commission.last_img read more

Taliban kill 3 US Marines in Afghanistan

first_imgKabul: US forces in Afghanistan revised on Tuesday the death toll from a Taliban attack the previous day near the main American base in the country, saying three service members were killed but not a contractor who was initially reported among the fatalities. The U.S. and NATO Resolute Support mission issued a statement “to clarify initial reporting” about Monday’s roadside bombing of an American convoy near the main U.S. base. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack. The Pentagon said later that all three service members killed were Marines. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USThe mission said a roadside bomb hit the convoy near the Bagram Airfield, killing three American service members, and said “the contractor who was reported as killed, is alive.” The statement said “the contractor, an Afghan citizen, was initially treated along with other injured civilians, later identified as a contractor and treated at Bagram Airfield.” Three other U.S. service members were also wounded in the attack. The base in Bagram district is located in northern Parwan province and serves as the main U.S. air facility in the country. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsThe wounded were evacuated and are receiving medical care, the statement said. Christopher Slutman, a 15-year New York City fire department member, was among the three Marines killed. He leaves behind his wife, Shannon, and three daughters. “Firefighter Slutman bravely wore two uniforms and committed his life to public service both as a New York City firefighter and as a member of the United States Marine Corps,” Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said in a written statement. The Pentagon identified the two other Marines killed as Cpl. Robert A. Hendriks, 25, of Locust Valley, New York, and Sgt. Benjamin S. Hines, 31, of York, Pennsylvania. In their claim of responsibility, the Taliban said they launched the attack and that one of their suicide bombers detonated his explosives-laden vehicle near the NATO base. The conflicting accounts could not be immediately reconciled. On Tuesday, local Afghan officials said at least five Afghan civilians were wounded in the commotion after the attack on the American convoy. Four were passersby and the fifth was a driver of a car going down the road, said Abdul Raqib Kohistani, the Bagram district police chief. Abdul Shakor Qudosi, the district administrative chief in Bagram, said American soldiers opened fire immediately after their convoy was bombed. Monday’s U.S. fatalities bring to seven the number of U.S. soldiers killed so far this year in Afghanistan, underscoring the difficulties in bringing peace to the war-wrecked country even as Washington has stepped up efforts to find a way to end the 17-year war, America’s longest. There are about 14,000 U.S. forces in Afghanistan, supporting embattled Afghan forces as they struggle on two fronts facing a resurgent Taliban who now hold sway over almost half the country and also the Islamic State affiliate, which has sought to expand its footprint in Afghanistan even as its self-proclaimed “caliphate” has crumbled in Syria and Iraq.last_img read more
