Toasty work for ABL

first_imgThe cargo consisted of the toaster, measuring 19.1 m x 5.6 m x 5.6 m, and nine additional cases, which were first collected from Çorlu and delivered to Martas port in Turkey.At the port, a 500-tonne mobile crane loaded the toaster and cases on board the vessel, Vega, which transported the shipment to the Russian river port of Rostov-on-Don. Here the toaster was discharged by a 100-tonne port crane and a 150-tonne mobile railway crane.From Rostov-on-Don the cargo was delivered by road to Alexeyevka on a modular multi-axle trailer, a 1,300 km journey which took six days to complete.The desolventiser-toaster is used in the agro-industry to remove the solvent from meal, which can then be used as an ingredient in animal feed compounds, for example.   www.ablforwarding.belast_img

U. in prime spot

first_imgThere was so much going on Monday morning that Utah coach Urban Meyer had to turn his phone off. And he said he may leave it off.Meyer’s phone was ringing off the hook for a couple of reasons.One, his Utes had surprisingly moved up one spot in the BCS standings into the all-important top six, which would guarantee a berth in one of the four BCS bowls at season’s end. And two, Ron Zook was fired as head coach at Florida, fueling speculation that Meyer could be a top candidate for the job.Meyer, whose 7-0 Utes play at San Diego State on Saturday, was happy to talk about the BCS situation. At least happier than he was to talk about the possibility of another job.”I just heard that a few minutes ago,” Meyer said at his weekly 1 p.m. news conference Monday. “I think it’s great. Actually my wife called me and her comment on my message machine — I didn’t get to talk to her — was, ‘You’re No. 6 — make sure you stay there.’ “Meyer then laughed and added, “That’s great coaching on her part.”The Utes leapfrogged Wisconsin to No. 6 in the BCS standings, even though neither team moved in the Associated Press or coaches poll. The Utes’ BCS average is .7217, compared with Wisconsin’s .7180. Last week the Badgers led the Utes by just .0004. Even though Wisconsin is ranked higher than Utah in both the AP and ESPN/USA Today polls, the Utes enjoy a big edge over the Badgers in the computer polls with an average ranking of five compared with Wisconsin’s 11.Although Meyer did acknowledge he “did look for it” and that “a lot of people will talk about it,” he also said it doesn’t matter if the Utes are No. 6 or No. 8 or 9 in the BCS standings right now.”Where you are now doesn’t matter,” he said. “I think we have four of our toughest games coming up. In December we can have a great big press conference or a party or whatever, but right now there are no issues with that.”Later, Meyer got a little testy when asked about the suddenly open job at Florida. Zook was let go a few hours earlier and the fact that former University of Utah president Bernie Machen is president at Florida now makes some folks believe Meyer is bound to be contacted.When asked if he’s looking for Machen’s name on his caller ID, Meyer replied, “I don’t carry a phone around with me now. I had a bunch of calls today, which was disruptive, so, no more.”When asked to describe his relationship with Machen, who was U. president when he was hired, Meyer said, “I have no comment. This is about San Diego State. If you want to ask about San Diego State, I’d love to talk about.”Finally, when asked if he was flattered to have his name mentioned as a possible candidate for the Florida job, Meyer said, “To have my name mentioned — it’s been mentioned a million other times too, so I’m not focusing on it.”Ute players don’t seem to be concerned about losing their coach.”It’s not surprising that his name is going to be thrown out for another job,” said Ute quarterback Alex Smith, who has one more season after this one. “It’s just like everything else. We can’t think about that. He’s put in a lot of time here and obviously he’s as determined to win as us.””We don’t have time to worry about stuff like that,” said Utah defensive lineman Kite Afeaki. “We’re just focused on our jobs.”Meyer has said several times over the past two years that he’s very happy in Utah and that his wife, Shelly, is especially happy to be in Utah and doesn’t want to leave. His contract has a $250,000 buyout with exemptions for three schools: Notre Dame, Ohio State and Michigan. However, if a school such as Florida really wants a coach such as Meyer, a buyout clause shouldn’t be a problem. Besides Meyer, other coaches who have been mentioned as possible candidates are former Florida coach Steve Spurrier; Oklahoma’s Bob Stoops, a former Florida assistant; Boise State coach Dan Hawkins and Fresno State’s Pat Hill. Sooners, Utes jump ahead in BCS rankings Utes have gone year without a defeat Zook fired, will finish seasoncenter_img Related E-mail: [email protected]last_img read more

He also disagreed with a suggestion that he didn’t give his best effort against Zverev.“While I do feel a bit of guilt and I’m like, maybe I could have played four or five sets,” Tomic said, “in my opinion, he played well and I was just playing terrible and I just couldn’t find any rhythm, and he deserved to win.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next MOST READ LSU title parade draws massive crowds Australia’s Bernard Tomic looks on during his Men’s Singles Match against Germany’s Mischa Zverev on day two at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in London Tuesday, July 4, 2017.
