The dhow’s master requested medical assistance through the emergency radio channel.As a result of the emergency call, the EU Force Commander on board FGS Brandenburg tasked HS Psara, which was conducting counter-piracy patrols nearby, to proceed towards the dhow and provide medical assistance.The doctor of HS Psara, Lieutenant Georgios Panagakis and his medical assistant, Ensign Konstantinos Athanasiou, embarked the dhow and after assessing that the crew member was suffering from febrile food poisoning, gave him appropriate medical treatment.Since the European Union Naval Force began counter-piracy operations off the coast of Somalia in December 2008, EU warships have, as well making a significant contribution in the fight against piracy, provided much-needed medical and technical assistance to a number of seafarers at sea.[mappress]Press Release, May 1, 2014; Image: EU Navfor View post tag: Greek Greek Frigate Provides Medical Assistance to Crew Member of Dhow View post tag: crewcenter_img View post tag: Medical View post tag: member View post tag: Frigate View post tag: Naval View post tag: Assistance View post tag: News by topic View post tag: provides The Greek Navy frigate HS Psara which has been deployed with the European Union Naval Force (EU NAVFOR) Somalia Operation Atalanta since February has provided emergency medical assistance to the crew member of a dhow.last_img read more

Lt. Governor Grows Indiana-Mexico Relationship

first_img Business roundtables, meetings with senior government officials and the signing of a letter of intent have netted a productive first three days in Mexico, as part of Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch’s second agricultural, economic and tourism development trip.The agriculture delegation spent Monday and Tuesday in Mexico City, with today’s business being conducted in the state of Hidalgo.“The Mexican government has shown their support for USMCA and it is now up to Congress to seal the deal,” Crouch said. “But in Indiana, we’re not waiting around. We want Mexico to know that Indiana is open for business and that we’re committed to developing and enhancing our relationship with them.”In Mexico City, the Lt. Governor and members of the delegation met with representatives within the Foreign Affairs, Economy, and Tourism ministries. There, they discussed opportunities to enhance cooperation in the areas of agriculture, economic development and tourism. The Lt. Governor also met with the Mexican Undersecretary of North America Jesús Seade, who spoke about the importance of the Indiana-Mexico trade relationship, valued at just under $10 billion.A business networking breakfast and Friends of Indiana reception also took place in Mexico City, which brought Mexican CEOs, stakeholders and government officials, who have existing or prospective ties with the state, together with the delegation.“Mexico is relationship-driven,” said Bruce Kettler, Indiana State Department of Agriculture Director. “As connected as we are today, there’s still no substitute for face-to-face conversation, so these meetings were invaluable to growing our, already strong, agricultural and economic ties.”One of the highlights of the group’s trip was the signing of a letter of intent between Lt. Governor Crouch and Hidalgo’s Secretary of Interior Simón Vargas Aguilar.The agreement, on behalf of the two states, calls for enhanced cooperation in areas like agriculture, education, and science and technology. Included in the letter were several action items, for example, organizing industry events, providing opportunities to collaborate with experts and sharing best practices.“Signing this letter with Hidalgo is a win for both states, but now the real work begins,” Crouch said. “With this agreement as our roadmap, we look forward to upholding our end of the bargain and capitalizing on this opportunity.”The agriculture group also toured several locations including the Polanco market area, Tate & Lyle and the Santa Clara processing facility.The Indiana tourism delegation also built key relationships, and will continue working towards an end goal of creating a tourism campaign in Mexico. The tourism group conducted key meetings with travel wholesalers, specialized travel media and tourism government officials.“After meeting with several tourism partners in Mexico, I am extremely excited by their interest in our tourism destinations. We’re learning there is a market for our experiences in the Hoosier state,” said Misty Weisensteiner, Director of the Indiana Office of Tourism Development. “Seventeen million Mexican tourists visit the United States per year. It is our mission to capture some of those visitors and bring them to Indiana.”For updates on the agricultural delegation, follow ISDA at @ISDAgov, or for updates on the tourism delegation, follow IOTD at @INTourismPR. Tomorrow is the delegation’s last day in Mexico.FOOTNOTE: Photo caption: Lt.

Rystad: Asian renewable energy capacity to hit 754GW by 2025, up 50% in five years

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享PV Magazine:Analysis from Rystad Energy has found the installed capacity of renewable energy in the Asia-Pacific region is set to soar from 497 gigawatts (GW) this year to 754 GW in 2025. The driving force behind the increase will be solar, with regional capacity nearly doubling from 192 GW in 2020 to 349 GW in the next five years.The jump will propel solar energy past the installed capacity of well-established onshore wind energy. Nonetheless, onshore wind’s capacity is also expected to rise 26% from 243 GW to 308 GW in the next five years, with offshore wind set to grow 50% from 34 GW to 51 GW. Storage, battery and hydrogen electrolyser capacity is likely to expand even faster, with a 60% growth rate forecast, moving the capacity from 28 GW to 45 GW by 2025.In September, Rystad Energy analysis found Australia is following a similar trajectory to the region at large, with electricity generated by solar and onshore wind farms to overtake the combined power production from coal and gas from 2026.“Renewable energy growth has led engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) service providers in the region and Asian fabrication yards to fast-track their energy transition plans to actively target low-carbon markets and tender for such contracts,” senior energy service research analyst at Rystad Energy, Lin Lin Goh, said in a press release.[Bella Peacock]More: Solar to power to drive 50% surge in Asia-Pacific renewable energy capacity by 2025 Rystad: Asian renewable energy capacity to hit 754GW by 2025, up 50% in five yearslast_img read more

Alan Mulally: Vision, strategy, implementation

first_imgACUC keynoter Alan Mulally drives success using three universal Adam MertzTo the skeptics who wondered whether an “airplane guy” from Boeing had the knowledge and wherewithal to lead Ford Motor Co. out of one of the darkest periods in its history, Alan Mulally delivered a convincing response.“The average automobile has around 10,000 parts. They’re very, very sophisticated,” Mulally said shortly after he was introduced as Ford’s president/CEO in 2006. “I might point out that the [Boeing] 777 has four million parts—and has to stay in the air.”An aerospace engineer by trade, Mulally understands the beauty and power of the design, construction, and distribution details involved in creating both of these intricate modes of transportation.But perhaps his strongest trait as a leader has been a knack for simplifying that sophistication—defining the core principles and products on which to focus and creating a collaborative, problem-solving culture in which everyone in the organization is, and feels, invested. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
