zoom Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri and cruise company Carnival Corporation have signed a memorandum of agreement (MoA) for the construction of one next-generation cruise ship for Carnival’s UK-based brand Cunard.As informed, the agreement will become operational when all the financial and technical conditions are satisfied.The 113,000 gross ton ship will be built at the Monfalcone yard and join the Cunard’s fleet in 2022. With an accommodation space for 3,000 passengers, the cruise ship will be the 249th to fly the Cunard flag since the company’s founding in 1839.The cruise brand currently operates three ships, Queen Elizabeth, Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria.“We are very pleased to announce the fourth ship for our … Cunard brand… While today’s news helps drive Cunard’s overall strategic growth plans, we also look forward to launching this next-generation cruise ship to help meet increasing global demand and entice even more travelers to explore the Cunard experience,” Arnold Donald, CEO of Carnival Corporation, commented.“Fleet enhancement is an important part of our ongoing goal to exceed guest expectations. This includes replacing less efficient ships with more efficient vessels over time as part of our managed capacity growth,” Donald added.“For this group we have built 63 ships, representing today almost two-thirds of their fleet, with other 9 to come in the coming years,” Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri, said.With this new ship agreement, Carnival Corporation now has 18 new ships scheduled to be delivered to its portfolio of cruise brands between 2018 and 2022.
zoom Miami-based cruise liner Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. has secured EUR 2.5 billion (USD 2.96 billion) to finance construction of its two new Icon-class LNG-powered cruise ships.The loan is being provided by an international consortium led by German lender KfW IPEX-Bank. The banking syndicate also includes BNP Paribas, HSBC, Commerzbank, Santander, BBVA, Bayern/LB, DZ Bank, JPMorgan and SMBC.The ships, which will be built at the Meyer Turku shipyard in Finland, will be able to carry over 5,500 passengers each, and are due to enter into service in 2022 and 2024, respectively. They will also introduce the use of fuel cell technology, the objective being a dramatic reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.Royal Caribbean Cruises said that it will begin testing fuel cell technology on an existing Oasis-class ship in 2017, and will also run progressively larger fuel cell projects on new Quantum class vessels being built in the next several years.“Cruise ships are booming, and the aim is to shape this trend for the lowest possible level of emissions for mankind and nature. We are pleased that our financing is helping to advance LNG propulsion,” Andreas Ufer, Member of the Management Board of KfW IPEX-Bank, said.“This order will occupy our production until 2024. This not only affects our location in Turku, but also our whole supply network both in Finland and Germany on a significant scale. This combination of our successful distribution and the closely-tailored structured finance will sustainably secure jobs in Germany and Europe,” Jan Meyer, CEO of Meyer Turku, adds.This is the largest syndicate financing package that KfW IPEX-Bank has ever structured and led on its own, which is contributing EUR 686 million to the deal.The loans, granted separately for the ships, each have a term of 12 years from the respective ship delivery date.
The Sydney Tar Ponds Agency has invited residents of north-end Sydney to an open house to discuss how construction of the Battery Point barrier will affect their neighbourhood. J&T Van Zutphen Construction will begin work soon on construction of a rock barrier between the Tar Ponds and Sydney Harbour. The barrier will extend from Battery Point in Sydney’s north end, near the Cape Breton Regional Municipality (CBRM) sewage treatment plant, to Harbourside Commercial Park (formerly Sysco). A gap in the structure will accommodate water flowing through the Muggah Creek estuary. The barrier is needed to prevent the release of Tar Ponds sediment into Sydney Harbour when work begins on the big cleanup. The contractor will use slag from Sydney Steel and coarse stone from a nearby quarry to build the structure. At the same time, a soil berm surrounding the sewage treatment plant will be excavated and trucked to the CBRM landfill. This work will temporarily increase truck traffic in parts of the north end. The agency has distributed flyers throughout the neighbourhood inviting residents to the open house. Project planners will be on hand to explain the job and discuss concerns. The open house will take place Friday, May 26, at St. George’s Anglican Church hall, on Napean Street, Sydney, from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. For information on this project and all aspects of the Tar Ponds Cleanup, see the agency’s website www.tarpondscleanup.ca .

WASHINGTON — U.S. home sales soared 11.8 per cent in February, aided by accelerating wages and falling mortgage rates that are improving affordability.The National Association of Realtors says that existing homes sold at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.51 million last month, a decisively sharp rebound from a pace of 4.94 million in January.The real estate market is still recovering from a spike in rates for home loans last year, which caused sales to slow as the size of monthly mortgage payments jumped. As a result, existing home sales are down 1.8 per cent from a year ago.But rates have since tumbled after peaking in early November, helping sales to recover.The median sales price in January was $247,500, a slight increase of 2.8 per cent from last year.Josh Boak, The Associated Press
The big decliners in the past 4 years include Libya, Australia, Brazil, Spain and Turkey. The big improvers include Greece, Senegal and UK. Brazil was the biggest decliner in the index, falling 5 points and dropping 7 positions to a rank of 76. The unfolding Petrobras scandal brought people into the streets in 2015 and the start of judicial process may help Brazil stop corruption.The index covers perceptions of public sector corruption in 168 countries. Top performers share key characteristics: high levels of press freedom; access to budget information so the public knows where money comes from and how it is spent; high levels of integrity among people in power; and judiciaries that don’t differentiate between rich and poor, and that are truly independent from other parts of government.In addition to conflict and war, poor governance, weak public institutions like police and the judiciary, and a lack of independence in the media characterise the lowest ranked countries. Sri Lanka is on par with China in the Corruption Perceptions Index 2015 released in Berlin today by Transparency International.Both Sri Lanka and China are ranked 83 with scores of 37 each. Denmark took the top spot for the 2nd year running, with North Korea and Somalia the worst performers, scoring just 8 points each. Transparency International said that 2015 showed that people working together can succeed in the battle against corruption. Although corruption is still rife globally, more countries improved their scores in the 2015 edition of Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index than declined. Overall, two-thirds of the 168 countries on the 2015 index scored below 50, on a scale from 0 (perceived to be highly corrupt) to 100 (perceived to be very clean).“Corruption can be beaten if we work together. To stamp out the abuse of power, bribery and shed light on secret deals, citizens must together tell their governments they have had enough. The 2015 Corruption Perceptions Index clearly shows that corruption remains a blight around the world. But 2015 was also a year when people again took to the streets to protest corruption. People across the globe sent a strong signal to those in power: it is time to tackle grand corruption,” said José Ugaz, Chair of Transparency International. Transparency International noted that in places like Guatemala, Sri Lanka and Ghana, citizen activists in groups and on their own worked hard to drive out the corrupt, sending a strong message that should encourage others to take decisive action in 2016. The Corruption Perceptions Index is based on expert opinions of public sector corruption. Countries’ scores can be helped by open government where the public can hold leaders to account, while a poor score is a sign of prevalent bribery, lack of punishment for corruption and public institutions that don’t respond to citizens’ needs.

Change is coming…for Gearlog…and for me. As it turns out, it’s time for us both to move on.Gearlog was born in August of 2005. Even five and a half years ago, the world of technology blogs was crowded–but Gearlog had a secret weapon. It had PCMag. Early on, the site bore the tagline, “from the editors of PCMag.” It was an outlet for our editors and analysts–a way to keep up with the ever-increasing pace of the Web. It became a destination place for news and rumors and quick opinions written in between the site’s lengthy reviews.Before sitting down to write this, I went into our content management system to pin point the site’s precise birthday. I found a post written on August 9th, 2006–about 15 months before I started at PCMag–titled “Snappy New Ultralight Tablet From Toshiba.” No mission statement or “welcome to Gearlog.” The site and its editors hit the ground running, and they haven’t looked back.AdChoices广告And, like the Web around it, Gearlog has proven itself a constantly evolving creature, spawning newsletters and a podcast, and surviving a number of personnel changes–including its largest shift, which occurred in the summer of last year, when the site’s long-time editor Carol Mangis left Ziff (no discussion of Gearlog’s history would be complete without mentioning the tremendous amount of time Carol put into the site).Carol’s departure and new ownership meant more changes for Gearlog, and I was asked to take the helm. And as it had in the beginning, the site hit the ground running once again. Gearlog shifted focus under my reign, taking a more newsy approach to the tech world. We brought new writers and plenty of new readers on board.When the company’s new owners took over, they stressed acquisitions as one of the company’s primary goals, and in January, PCMag purchased Geek.com, a much beloved and widely read news blog. That acquisition, it turned out, would prove the next step in Gearlog’s evolution. Tomorrow, Gearlog will become a part of Geek.com. All of the content we’ve produced for the site over the years will live on under the Geek umbrella, and the Gearlog URL will redirect to that site.A number of your favorite Gearlog writers will make the transition as well. In fact, if you already read Geek on a regular basis, you’ve likely noticed that a few already have.I, on the other hand, will not be making the move. In fact, by the time this posts, I will already be at my new gig at Engadget.com.I’ll spare you the laundry list of thank yous–which would obviously include all of the writers, PCMag editors, and people who have kept the site running on the backend. But four people certainly warrant a quick mention in this paragraph. Carol, of course, for the reasons mentioned above. Lance Ulanoff and Vicki Jacobson, PCMag’s editor-in-chief and director of online content, respectively, have been tremendously helpful for countless reasons. And Jenny Bergen, who has assisted me with Gearlog these past several months–hers is among the names that will make the transition over to Geek.And a last bit of self-indulgence: if you’d like to keep up to date with me and my goings on, please follow me on Twitter–I’m @bheater. In the meantime, I’ll see you around the blogosphere.–Brian Heater

Once a beloved tourist destination, an island of great beauty, attracting visitors from around the world, Lesvos has been in the news for more than a year now – but not for its beauty, culture and rich history. The island has been the epicentre of the refugee crisis that has plagued Europe and inflicted the final blows to the struggling Greek economy. Thousands of desperate people have been arriving by boat to the island and many thousands remain stranded in the refugee camps set up to provide them with the basics. Faced with an impossible intake of refugees – and the humanitarian crisis that has ensued – locals have responded with overwhelming courage and compassion. Local authorities, officials and volunteers have been working side by side with the NGOs that set up camp in the island.This turn of events has not been without dire consequences. Lesvos has been transformed from a tourist destination to a large refugee camp, which has affected both the social fabric as well as the local economy, that was largely dependent on tourism. As Greece reaches its tourism high season, Lesvos has seen a steep decline in arrivals. Who would want to swim in the same waters where desperate people – among them toddlers and babies – have drowned? How can anyone sunbathe on the same seashores where the coastguard was lining up bodybags? As it happened when the refugee crisis struck the island, once again, it’s the same volunteers who want to come to the rescue of the community. Enter Rita Nikolaidou, Lida Aslanidou and Hussein Khalili; a core team of like-minded individuals, they wanted to take action to help the island retain its position as a beloved destination, all the while raising awareness for the refugees. “We want the whole world to see what we’re experiencing every day,” says Rita Nikolaidou, an actress from Thessaloniki who found herself in Lesvos as part of a theatre project and decided to stay and work with children. She quickly became an active member of the local community, and started a youth acting group, mounting a number of shows with local students. It was from this work that Symbiosis Festival was born. Along with Hussein Khalili, a Palestinian who fled from Stockholm to Lesvos to work as a cultural mediator for Doctors Without Borders, they set up ‘Hope Theatre’, modelled after the Freedom Theatre in Palestine. But the idea of the festival started in London, where Lida Aslanidou has been living. A journalist and project manager in the social sector, she envisioned an arts festival as a way of acknowledging the acts of selflessness and solidarity that the people of Lesvos have shown during the ongoing refugee crisis. The month-long festival will take place in three towns in Lesvos – Mytilene, Eresos and Molyvos – featuring dozens of projects: music concerts, theatre shows, art exhibitions, workshops, panel talks, a film festival and a food festival (Lesvos, after all, is one of Greece’s culinary capitals). Its aim is to promote the island’s cultural heritage and promote intercultural dialogue and collaboration, all the while raising awareness for the refugee crisis and establishing Lesvos as a destination for alternative, cultural tourism, being one of the Mediterranean’s architecturally, naturally and culturally richest islands. Driven by genuine enthusiasm and their love for the island and its people, the organising team didn’t bat an eyelid when they decided to undertake what is a herculean project. “Symbiosis Lesvos Arts Festival is inclusive to all the artists, musicians, painters, sculptors, photographers, filmmakers, actors who have been involved in or inspired by the refugee issue around the world. Our goal is to support the local community and then evolve to a new cultural institution of global appeal,” says Rita Nikolaidou. The main team was augmented by Mersa Anastasiadou, an artist and yoga instructor very much involved in the local artist community, and Eri Nikolaidou, Rita’s sister, who took charge of booking bands and managed to attract an impressive number of up-and-coming acts from around Europe and the Middle East, creating the kind of cultural dialogue that more established music festivals would die for. None of the team had much experience in planning events, let alone such a big one. If they had, they might shy away and try to tame their enthusiasm. But they managed to gain the trust of the community – officials, local councils, industry professionals all sided with them and offered their support. The festival will run under the auspices of the local authority, and admission to all events will be free. None of the participating artists will be paid and a small army of volunteers is already swarming across the island, setting things up. “We have secured accommodation, food and stages for the artists, we’ve got sound systems and light set up for most of the venues and we’ve also managed to cover the travel cost for some of the artists – others came on their own expenses,” says Rita Nikolaidou.“But we do need more funding to be able to go through with all this, this is why we started a crowdfunding campaign, through the Indiegogo website. The more funds, the more activities we can carry out. The more funds from individuals, the more independent we can remain from external organisations and sponsors.” Faced with a bigger project that will aim to promote multiculturalism, cross-cultural dialogue and exchange and capacity building in the community, they’re armed with what the organisers describe as “our common language”: “our bodies, our songs and our radiant smiles”.

YACOLT — No one was hurt when a loaded dump truck and trailer barreled through the intersection of Northeast Kelly Road and Northeast Lucia Falls Road and into a creek bed last month, but the crash was another flash point for some residents in their long-running dispute with Clark County.David Rogers, who lives up Kelly Road not far from the crash site, has been lobbying the county for some kind of change in the road rules for years.On Feb. 9, the date of the crash, Rogers received three phone calls about the crash before he was out the door to see what happened.“The neighbors — we’re just tired of this,” he said. “Someone’s going to get killed.”Quarry neighbors have multiple concerns about the mining in the northern parts of the county, but traffic has been high on the list. It’s an old debate.In 2004, after a hearings examiner denied a permit, county commissioners voted to overrule the denial and a Superior Court judge affirmed their reversal, the county granted a mining permit to J.L. Storedahl & Sons to develop a quarry to provide aggregate from Yacolt Mountain.
