GPLN duo delivers CNC gear to China

first_imgThe CNC machine measured 8.4 m x 2.96 m x 3.62 m and weighed almost 50 tonnes. Heavy Logistics coordinated the transport of the over-dimensional unit, which was particularly sensitive to external forces and required careful handling to ensure it was not damaged. Intermax Logistics, headquartered in Shanghai, took care of Customs clearance, temporary storage and the installation of the machine onto its foundations at the jobsite.www.gpln.netwww.heavy.bewww.inter-max.netlast_img

US swimmer Ryan Lochte apologizes for Rio incident

first_imgUS swimmer Ryan Lochte apologizes for Rio incident SHARE Published: August 19, 2016 10:46 AM EDT Updated: August 19, 2016 11:32 AM EDT U.S. swimmer Ryan Lochte issued an apology Friday morning about an incident that occurred early Sunday at the Rio Olympics. Lochte initially said he and three teammates had been robbed at gunpoint, but Rio police discounted that on Thursday and instead said the swimmers vandalized a gas station bathroom and then paid some guards before leaving. Following is the full text of Lochte’s statement, posted to his Instagram account.___I want to apologize for my behavior last weekend – for not being more careful and candid in how I described the events of that early morning and for my role in taking the focus away from the many athletes fulfilling their dreams of participating in the Olympics. I waited to share these thoughts until it was confirmed that the legal situation was addressed and it was clear that my teammates would be arriving home safely.It’s traumatic to be out late with your friends in a foreign country – with a language barrier – and have a stranger point a gun at you and demand money to let you leave, but regardless of the behavior of anyone else that night, I should have been much more responsible in how I handled myself and for that am sorry to my teammates, my fans, my fellow competitors, my sponsors, and the hosts of this great event. I am very proud to represent my country in Olympic competition and this was a situation that could and should have been avoided. I accept responsibility for my role in this happening and have learned some valuable lessons.I am grateful for my USA Swimming teammates and the USOC, and appreciate all of the efforts of the IOC, the Rio ’16 Host Committee, and the people of Brazil who welcomed us to Rio and worked so hard to make sure that these Olympic Games provided a lifetime of great new memories. There has already been too much said and too many valuable resources dedicated to what happened last weekend, so I hope we spend our time celebrating the great stories and performances of these Games and look ahead to celebrating future successes.

Big improvements at Pom Grammar meet

first_imgROAD RUNNING Port Moresby Road Runners conducted three events on Saturday afternoon at what is fast becoming the most popular running venue in the city at the Port Moresby Grammar School campus on the corner of Bava Street and Taurama Road, Korobosea. With the gates to the car park open and a safe and secure location, just off the bi-ways of the capital, it was another bountiful bunch of eager-beaver runners and walkers of all shapes and sizes and ages who took off at 5pm. It was only five weeks since they were there last and this provided a good opportunity for those who took part on both occasions to check their form. Joshua John won the 2.5-kilometre race on June 30 in 9 minutes and 12 seconds and he repeated the dose on Saturday with a very similar time, 9.17. Skene Kiage won the 8.6km event on June 30 in 34.07, while on Saturday he won again, which was hardly a surprise as he has never been beaten since he started with Road Runners in May 2017. The big problem for those with designs on one day beating the Chimbu champion is that he keeps getting faster. His winning time on Saturday was 33.36. Priscilla Aitsi was another surfing the wave of improvement. She was in 17th place with a 44.03 in the 5.8-km event on June 30. On Saturday she was 14th in 42.05. In the 8.6km race other big improvers were the promising junior Brandon Aitsi (47.47: 44.50) and the battle-hardened super-veteran Eddie Joe (49.31: 47.43). The 8.6km course is a tough outing as having enjoyed the downhill section to the third roundabout along Taurama Road in the direction of Taurama Barracks the homeward bound sector is virtually all uphill. Added to that was a strong headwind, hundreds of wayward but fortunately not many drunk pedestrians and the penetrating glare of a slowly setting sun. No walk in the park for anyone. Falyn Buda won the female category with an excellent sub-50 minute, 49.48, while Glenda Yuwi ran with style and grit to be second in 63.40 ahead of the fast-finishing Loma Takuna (64.26). Next Saturday at 5pm the runners and walkers will be at Kila Police Barracks, between Gabutu and Taikone.last_img read more
