In order to weigh the units, ALE used SPMTs to lift the cargoes and position the load cells, which obtained accurate weights of the individual modules.This operation was the first of two manoeuvres carried out by ALE for four modules, as part of an LNG project in Australia.The client requested to know the exact weight and centre of gravity of the units, in order to verify the lashing calculations, as well as plan the transportation and installation at the final destination.Meanwhile, ALE has also executed the transportation of an 800-tonne ship-to-shore crane within Barcelona’s Port Nou.The crane was transported from its original location to its new location using 40 axle lines of SPMT and two cross beams, and placed onto the rails.The transport was completed in just one day in order to minimise impact on traffic in the terminal, said ALE.www.ale-heavylift.com

Former Tabletalk sports reporter Karl Bergemann goes through his paces during a home training session. You don’t know what you have until it’s gone, or that’s how the saying goes. Right now, every sport enthusiast and athletes from the amateur ranks to the professionals, world-wide, can attest to just that.With throngs of us now in lockdown, not just here in South Africa but abroad as well, albeit more-so here due to our strict regulations, something we so often take for granted – popping off to the gym, a kickaround with our friends at the football fields, a run around the block or even just walking your dog – is no longer available to us.Technology, however, for all its mis-intents, seems to be one of the keys to how we are all keeping it together. What was a novelty before – online workouts, video training sessions, runs in our gardens and so on – has now turned into necessity but it’s an opportunity that is being grabbed with both hands by everyone from gym owners, yogis, functional fitness enthusiasts, martial artists, your average joe couch potato and more.As an avid sportsman and professional martial artist, exercise is as much an essential part of my lifestyle as any, and although I often made use of home workouts and have spent many hours training by myself, planning my own training schedules or working off YouTube videos, the step from choosing to do a workout at home instead of the gym to being forced to work from home has been a bit of an adjustment – most notably when it comes to having to run in and around my yard and around the coffee table.Innovation has been key. Fortunately, my gym, Thaiholics Cape Town, took a pro-active approach to the Covid-19 indaba by shutting down even before the lockdown was announced in this country, scheduling daily workouts online for our members pretty much as soon as the impact of the virus began making its mark in Europe. It can be just as inspiring having group discussions and feedback about workouts you did on your own when you realise you are actually not in this alone. It’s an interesting thought – I’m alone, but I am not alone alone. Well, you have so many options available to you. The first point of call should be looking at workout videos that don’t require equipment, so bodyweight workouts on YouTube are great, or ones where they incorporate household items like water bottles, chairs and so on. You can even try your hand at something new – yoga, dance, shadowboxing drills, movement techniques. Or, if you need a more structured approach to your workouts I might recommend something like Limitless Athletics’ straight-to-your-email The Daily workout routines (check them out on Facebook) or you can opt to download their app. Apps – there’s another great way to find something instructional with optimisable structured routines. Whether you’re looking at plyometrics, bodyweight routines with videos or anything else, there’s almost always an app for it – jump on your playstore and see what’s out there.Also, if you want to feel like you’re part of something bigger, without having to be part of a club or gym, there are great challenges out there like the Mzansi Lockdown Marathon Challenge. ● Karl Bergemann is a former Tabletalk sports reporter and SA K1 kickboxing champion.
LocalNews Jury to determine Jimmit man’s fate by: – January 25, 2013 67 Views 5 comments Tweet Share Edward Ravalliere. Photo credit:Face BookA nine member jury will today, January 25th, determine the fate of a Jimmit man was charged with causing grevious bodily harm (GBH) to fire officer Tony Jno Baptiste in 2007.On Thursday, the state closed its case in the trial of former police officer Edward Ravalliere after four witnesses testified.It was alleged that on 12th August, 2007 Ravalliere hit Jno Baptiste with a piece of wood which resulted in Jno Baptiste sustaining injuries.Jno Baptiste testified that Ravalliere approached him on the day in question and inquired from him why his daughter [Ravalliere] was doing at the Roseau Fire Station on 10th August 2007, which is where Jno Baptiste was stationed.Jno Baptiste also testified that the confrontation occurred close to his home which was next to the defendant’s home in the presence of his wife, his two year old son and two friends who were spending time with him. He said at the time of the confrontation the defendant was armed with a piece of wood which he later identified to be the handle of a pick axe.Jno Baptiste said he did not respond to the defendant’s question and the defendant positioned himself and swung the piece of wood at him causing, therefore he raised his hand in an attempt to shield the blow. He received the blow to his forearm, fell to the ground, felt a sharp pain in his forearm and realized that his hand was broken.He said Ravalliere then hit him on his shoulder and in fear for his life, he ran to seek refuge in a neighbor’s yard while Ravalliere chased him and shouted stop or else he would “shoot” him. Jno Baptiste further testified that one of the neighbor’s spoke to him and then held on to Ravalliere who escaped, came after him and “clutched” his throat saying he would “kill” him.The neighbor then held Ravalliere and told Jno Baptiste to go to his home but on his way back to his house; Ravalliere came behind him, threatened him and his wife while he made gun trigger actions and told Mrs Jno Baptiste that it was her turn next.Police arrived on the scene moments later and Ravalliere was arrested for suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm to Jno Baptiste.An ambulance transported Jno Baptiste the Princess Margaret Hospital but on his way there he stopped at the Mahaut police station and gave the investigating officer, Andy Celaire the piece of wood he said Ravalliere used to hit him. Dr Carl Monroe, who attended to Jno Baptiste at Accident and Emergency Department of the Princess Margaret Hospital on 12th August, 2007 testified that his examination revealed that Jno Baptiste’s left wrist was deformed and there was an abrasion to the distal part of his arm.He said that a broken bone was identified during an x-ray and attempts to realign the broken bone were unsuccessful. Jno Baptiste was admitted to the Alford Ward and a few days and underwent surgery. Dr. Monroe testified further that Jno Baptiste’s injury could have been caused by a blunt object with the use of moderate force.The prosecution’s third witness, Mrs. Giselle Jno Baptiste testified that the defendant did hit her husband twice, chased him to the neighbor’s house and threatened her family by making gun trigger actions. The investigating officer, Andy Celaire was also called to give testimony.After the state closed its case Ravalliere took to the witness stand and said that he did not hit Jno Baptiste on that day.Ravalliere said his “investigations” had revealed that Jno Baptiste and his daughter had an intimate relationship and he had spoken to Jno Baptiste about this on numerous occasions but to no avail. He said he had complained to Mrs Jno Baptiste and made reports to the police concerning Jno Batiste’s relationship with his sixteen year old daughter.He admitted that he confronted Jno Baptiste that day regarding his daughter and that he was armed with a pick axe but it was only for intimidation purposes. Ravalliere said after he questioned Jno Baptiste about his daughter being at his workplace, he told him he would count up till three to get an answer but when he got to number two, Jno Batiste took off running and injured himself in the neighbor’s yard. Ravalliere said the only threats he made were to Mrs Jno Baptiste who insulted his daughter when she called her dirty name.He said he told her if she “don’t stop” insulting his daughter he would deal with her.When court resumes the nine member female jury will hear closing arguments from the prosecution and defense counsel Dawn Yearwood-Stuart. Justice Brian Cottle is the presiding judge.Dominica Vibes News Share Share Sharing is caring!

KPB Mayor Navarre: “Max is the Planning Director, Max Best, he’s also a registered land surveyor, he went down and measured and he went down and measured because we didn’t want any confusion about the fact there are multiple doors that could be an issue.” The Planning Director found the store’s entrance was the required 500 feet walking distance away from the entrance to the school and churches. Borough Mayor Mike Navarre on the decision not to oppose the store’s location, due to its proximity to nearby churches and the school… The Assembly unanimously felt the law was settled and there was no reason to further oppose a liquor license for the store. Clark: “I think anybody can come up with all kinds of different scenarios, I think we have to rely on the professionals, which in this case it’s your planning director, not ours, and they can’t be anybody else’s.” FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享It’s a matter of a few linear feet, but they ultimately allowed the Ninilchik General Store to take another step towards a long-awaited liquor license.
