The unit was also presented with the Fleet Diving Effectiveness Trophy for the same event.During a visit to the unit at Devonport Naval Base, Captain Phil Milburn, who commands all Royal Navy dive units, presented both awards.He handed the Maritime Component Commander’s Commendation on behalf of Rear Admiral Ian Corder, (commander operations) to Ross for Operation Olympics (the Armed Forces contribution to security of the London Games).As tactical planner Ross was responsible for the three-month operation before and during the event to ensure the regatta ran without a security hitch. The unit provided a 24-hour counter-threat response and 24-hour deterrent to any security breaches. Ross, of Plymouth, said:“I am very pleased at being presented with this award. It was very hard work over three months for us all and I receive it on behalf of the unit as I could not have performed so well.“without the back-up of a fantastic and capable team. We were responsible for making sure the jetties and docks were always checked and safe, so the sailors and organisers had a secure perimeter within which they could feel confident in performing at their best and a successful event could be staged.’’During the Olympic regatta the divers were thanked for their work by Princess Anne, among other dignitaries who visited them at Portland Docks.The Southern Dive Group’s (which includes Southern Dive Unit 2 in Portsmouth) remit includes dealing with explosive devices (improvised and conventional) on behalf of the police and Maritime Coastguard Agency on the UK coastline from south of the River Dee near Liverpool to the River Humber on the east coast including the Channel and Scilly Isles.Their priority is public safety both above and below the high water mark.

Wenger’s dilemma

first_imgI knew being at Oxford was like living in a bubble when, in five weeks, the only live football match I’d seen was Balliol v Worcester. Stuck in my high-security college, I’ve had to turn to the newspapers, the internet and the occasional viewing of Match of the As Chelsea march on, barely looking over their shoulder to catch a glimpse of their retinue (not that they’d be able to see anyone at that distance), Arsenal proceed to lock themselves inside their sole style of play that brings about any effect.I’m not the first one to say Arsenal need to vary their style if dominance domestically and in Eeurope can be achieved. But what they really need to do is not just try and perfect the present team, but have a whole new outlook. Arsenal need to resort to imitation.Eeuro 2004, Liverpool in their Eeuropean Cup win and Porto a season ago. Martin Samuel, the Times columnist, was on the right track when he wrote earlier this season that Arsenal’s 2003-4 side, who went the full Premiership campaign without defeat, were not just great but inimitable. Only Wenger could have moulded the team that could play in the blistering style they did.Chelsea, Samuel added, are only half of that: they are great – the best in last season, I believe – but they are not inimitable. Arsenal’s style was unique; Chelsea just churn out the same old stuff we saw done by Greece when they won Except Chelsea are better at it, and that’s why they win.In the current climate, Chelsea et al are the models. If a team wins something they’ve probably employed that style. Copying it effectively leads to success.But mimicking the top-level style is not something any old team can do well. In January 2004, Liverpool beat minnows Yeovil Town in the FA Cup third round, initially struggling as Yeovil’s tight defence frustrated them, but eventually clearing up with a comfortable 2-0 victory.The following morning, Simon Barnes, another Times columnist, (you think I have time to read two newspapers?) remarked that Yeovil had shot themselves in the foot. They had tried to imitate Gérard Houllier’s team by playing the civilised style that Premiership teams go for. They tried to pass, and defend with tactical precision, and keep to a system, and attack with caution, and all the things José Mourinho probably tells Chelsea to do. But they weren’t good enough at it, so they lost. Years ago, noted Barnes, Yeovil – – the kings of cup upsets – would have abandoned any tactics or discipline and gone all out to overwhelm Liverpool with passion and hard work and the help of an intimidating set of drunken fans. Instead, Yeovil played like a modern Premiership team, the fans sat and sang “Yeovil till I die” in the sweetest voice they could, and everyone wondered why they barely came close. In a battle between two identical systems, class will inevitably prevail.Currently, Arsenal can only beat the best if they are on form on the day. To achieve bigger things at home and in Europe, Arsenal need to imitate the imitable Chelsea. But unlike Yeovil that Sunday afternoon, Arsenal have the class to live up to the system. Eeven with Patrick Vieira gone they have enough quality players to form a system to compete on equal terms with Chelsea. Arsenal must stop wondering why their system is failing and start adapting to the present. If Chelsea’s bubble is going to burst, Arsenal have to get out of their own.Day to keep up with the world of football. Otherwise, escaping the vacuum is not easy. And it seems that my team are suffering from a similar problem. Arsenal have started the season – in fact, continued from where they were in May – in a bubble that seems to have been cutting them off from their rivals.ARCHIVE: 5th week MT 2005last_img read more

Students protest outside BBC HQ

first_imgA crowd of protesters surrounded the BBC Oxford Studios to express their anger at the broadcaster’s refusal to air an aid appeal for Gaza.More than 100 demonstrators gathered on Sunday night, followed by a smaller protest the next day. Protesters, both students and locals, chanted “BBC, shame on you!” and waved banners reading “Bloody Biased Corporation.”The BBC has declined to broadcast an appeal by Disasters Emergency Committee to raise money for injured or homeless people in Gaza as they believe it will compromise the impartiality of their reporting.Amy Gilligan, a student at Exeter College, said she had joined the protest as part of a wider demonstration against the BBC, “people in London today were standing outside of the BBC studios burning their TV licences because people aren’t willing to put up with the… unwillingness to aid a humanitarian cause any more.”She accused the broadcaster of “bias broadcasting of the conflict.” She added, “so much more air time is given to the Israeli side of the story.”A spokesperson for the BBC said, “the BBC decision was made because of question marks about the delivery of aid in a volatile situation and also to avoid any risk of compromising public confidence in the BBC’s impartiality in the context of an ongoing news story.”Protest organiser, Tony Richardson of the Oxford Palestine Solidarity Campaign (OPSC), said that there were “quite a few students present” at the protest. He said, “the local PSC works quite closely with students… We were all together outside the Bodleian arguing the same thing.”Dominic Williams from St. Catherine’s college said that the protest in Oxford would “make people think about the campaign.” He said that it was important that the BBC showed the appeal because “lots of people watch the BBC and it would raise a lot of money.”He stressed that it was “a humanitarian appeal” because “people in Gaza need aid.”He argued that in an effort to show an equal representation of the conflict, the BBC had not properly emphasised the plight of people living in Gaza.Russell Ingis, a postgrad at St. Hughes, said “we all feel that this decision represents a total failure of compassion and a total lack of humanity.”The police were present but said they were not expecting any violence.last_img read more

PREMIERE: Watch Marc Ford And The Neptune Blues Club Jam In The Van

first_imgMarc Ford has become one of our scene’s preeminent guitarists, building a name for himself after joining The Black Crowes in the early 90’s. Since then, Ford has continued to build a reputation for himself as a talented musician with a fruitful career both as a solo artist following the 2002 release of It’s About Time and in the number of bands and side projects he has helped shape. Across his long career, in addition to his tenure with The Black Crowes, Ford has worked with Widespread Panic, Gov’t Mule, Federale, Booker T. Jones, Ivan Neville, and more. Most recently, The Neptune Blues Club—consisting of Ford, Mike Malone (vocals, harp, keys), John Bazz (bass), and Phil Jones (drums)—released The Vulture in October of last year. Front and center for this project are Ford’s hypnotic guitar stylings, which perfectly meld with the soulful blues numbers the group expertly tackles.Marc Ford Shows Off His Americana Credentials With This Set Of Songs From His Album “The Vulture”[Listen]In promotion of Marc Ford and The Neptune Blues Club’s latest studio endeavor, The Vulture (available on iTunes or Spotify), Ford hit up the “world’s first solar powered music discovery vehicle” for the latest live installment of Jam In The Van. The segment was shot on April 27th on their compound in Los Angeles, and during their performance in the intimate space, the group moves through three numbers off The Vulture—“Old Lady Sunrise,” “Ghetto Is Everywhere,” and “Shalimar Dreams.” Across the three songs, viewers get a full sense of Ford and The Neptune Blues Club’s range and versatility, with the group switching between a more laidback and gritty tone for “Ghetto Is Everywhere,” a twangy, Southern vintage sound for “Old Lady Sunrise,” and grinding old-school rock-n-roll for “Shalimar Dreams.” You can listen to the Live For Live Music premiere of these Jam In The Van renditions below, ahead of the videos’ official release tomorrow. Marc Ford and The Neptune Blues Club are currently on a thirty-date tour across Europe. Fans stateside are in luck, however, as Ford will embark on an extensive summer tour with The Magpie Salute—a group led by fellow Black Crowes’ bandmates Rich Robinson along with Sven Pipen, Joe Magistro, Nico Bereciartua, John Hogg, Charity White, Adrien Reju and Katrine Ottosen—once he returns from his sojourn across the pond. You can check out the dates for The Magpie Salute’s American summer tour below.

Idina Menzel Is a Sellout, Bryan Cranston Doesn’t Wear Undies & More Lessons!

first_img Star Files T.G.I.F., Broadway.com readers! Before we say “so long, farewell” to another action-packed week on the Great White Way, let’s revisit all of the random, weird and totally silly stuff Broadway stars have taught us over the last seven days. Ready?Jonathan Groff Is Coming to B’way (Sorta)No, he’s not making a return engagement as Melchior (damn it), but Jonathan Groff will announce this year’s Tony nominations with Lucy Liu. Jonathan, can’t you just sneak one tiny verse of “All That’s Known” in there for old time’s sake?S-Dawg & J.J. Pizza Man Join the FightOn the Rocky red carpet, Sierra Boggess and Jeremy Jordan got creative and made up the most adorable boxing alter egos of all time. We don’t know about you, but we wouldn’t want to get caught alone in a dark alley with J.J. Pizza Man.Bryan Cranston Goes CommandoOn The Colbert Report, All the Way star Bryan Cranston revealed which of his characters wear tighty-whiteys (Breaking Bad’s Walter White and Hal from Malcolm in the Middle) and which ones, uh, don’t (Lyndon B. Johnson). TMI, Mr. President. TMI!Matilda Is a Peanut-Free ZoneWe’re not sure which member of the Matilda cast is allergic, but we spotted a “no peanuts allowed” sign backstage. What a shame…Guess you’ll just have to send all those delicious peanut butter cups to Broadway.com, 729 7th Ave., New York, NY, 10019.James Monroe Iglehart Hearts McDonald’sMost Broadway stars fall asleep on a giant pile of money after their opening night parties (at least that’s what we’ve always imagined), but Aladdin funny guy James Monroe Iglehart hit up the Mickey D’s late night menu. Nothing says Broadway glamour like large fries and a McFlurry.Wanna Be on B’way? Eat CheetosHow did college roomies Helene Yorke and Andrew Keenan-Bolger make it from the University of Michigan to the Great White Way? By skipping class, watching Paula Deen and eating Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. See, kids? You just have to apply yourselves.Ramin Karimloo Loses 3 Pounds a ShowLes Miz hunk (yes, Jean Valjean is officially a hunk now) Ramin Karimloo’s performance is so physical, he estimates that he loses three pounds per performance while playing prisoner 24601. Lose weight, gain weight—just don’t skip the part of the show where you rip your shirt off.’Locomotion’ = Jessie Mueller Pee BreakWhere is Beautiful star Jessie Mueller while the rest of the cast is groovin’ on stage to “The Locomotion” every night? In Anika Larsen’s bathroom, taking a much-needed pee break. We’re gonna stick this info in the “TMI” pile with Bryan Cranston’s undies (or, uh, lack thereof).Oops! Broadway.com Outed Matt DoyleOn Show People, Jasper in Deadland star Matt Doyle says he wasn’t publicly open about his sexuality until Broadway.com spilled the beans in a photo caption. Yikes, sorry, Matt! But we think it worked out for the best, don’t you?Idina Menzel Is a Cover GirlFrozen and If/Then star Idina Menzel made the cover of Billboard this week! The issue flew off the shelves, making it the first edition of Billboard to sell out this year. Nice work, Idina fans. First, she conquered Broadway. Then the big screen. Then the Oscars.

Developer drops plans for China Stone thermal coal mine in Australia’s Galilee Basin

first_imgDeveloper drops plans for China Stone thermal coal mine in Australia’s Galilee Basin FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The Guardian:The backer of a massive coal proposal in the Galilee Basin, adjacent to Adani’s Carmichael mine site, has quietly abandoned its plans amid growing doubts about the long-term profitability of Australian thermal coal exports.The ABC reported this morning that the proponents of the $7bn China Stone mine had withdrawn their application for a mining lease in March. Owners MacMines Austasia, a subsidiary of China’s Meijin Energy Group, has confirmed the project’s future is “under internal discussion” but otherwise declined to comment.China Stone would have exported 38m tonnes of thermal coal a year, and was among the largest of seven proposed coalmines in the Galilee Basin.The collapse of a significant proposal in the Galilee will raise questions about the viability of the remote basin, which has been promoted in Queensland as a significant potential source of regional employment. Six mining proposals in the Galilee have gained necessary approvals, while one other, the Clive Palmer-backed Alpha North proposal, is undergoing an environmental assessment. None has begun construction.Analysts have questioned whether projects are viable in the Galilee, given the lack of existing infrastructure and the cost of transporting coal several hundred kilometres to export ports. Tim Buckley, the director of energy finance studies at the Institute of Energy Economics and Financial Analysis, said the economics of thermal coal in the Galilee Basin “just don’t stack up” amid the shift away from thermal coal.“You can’t dismiss BHP, who is one of the biggest suppliers to China in the world,” Buckley said. “As those markets move, regardless of what Australia does, we are exposed,” Buckley said. “China is going hell for leather into hydro, wind and solar because it provides diversity of [energy] supply. China passed peak coal five years ago. Why, in that market, would you go and build a mine that will take you five to 10 years anyway?”More: Galilee Basin mine next to Adani put on hold amid doubts over future of thermal coallast_img read more
