Central Asia link accord

first_imgREPRESENTATIVES from China, Kirgizistan and Uzbekistan signed an agreement in the Uzbek capital Toshkent in June for a technical and economic feasibility study into construction of a rail link into western China. According to Uzbek Vice-Premier Rustam Junussows, the three countries also signed an accord on the management of transit traffic between China and the CIS Central Asian states.Rising to over 3000m to cross the Tyan-Shan mountains, the line would link the Uzbek city of Andizhan with the Chinese city of Kashi, which will be the terminus of the South Xinjiang Railway now under construction. The first 50 km will be in Uzbekistan, taking the line to Osh, second biggest city in Kirgizistan. The 600 km from Osh to Irkeshtam will more than double the Kirgizian rail network, before the line crosses into China for a 200 km descent to Kashi.The route is seen as offering a direct link from the Pacific Rim to the Central Asian states and parts of southern Europe. As well as transit traffic, the line is expected to capture local business; South Korea’s automotive group Daewoo already sends 500 containers a month to Andizhan for local assembly. olast_img read more

Borssele Beta cable work to cost TenneT € 50 million more

first_imgWorks to install the Borssele Beta export cable in the Netherlands will set TenneT back an additional € 50 million after contractors discovered unstable soil along the cable route. Namely, the cable installation contract TenneT signed with NKT and VBMS (now Boskalis Subsea) in 2016/2017 will now be worth € 210 million, instead of € 160 million. “This route survey has been executed by an expert contractor who had extensive experience in performing similar surveys. The data of these surveys did not indicate the physical conditions of the Northern slope of the Honte. When executing the Sea Cable installation these conditions were discovered and made it necessary to apply a different working method.” The two companies installed the Borssele Alpha export cables in 2019. Although a survey to investigate the soil conditions of the subsea cable route was performed in 2015, TenneT said it had not indicated these specific physical conditions of the Northern slope of the Honte. center_img TenneT awarded Boskalis Subsea (VBMS) and NKT Cables a contract to supply and install two Borssele Alpha export cables with an option for Borssele Beta in November 2016. The option for Borssele Beta was awarded at the end of October 2017, with an additional 7-kilometre interconnector cable to be installed between the Borssele Alpha and Beta offshore substations. The reason for this is that the challenging physical conditions of the Northern slope of the Honte, part of the cable route, have been discovered during cable installation works for the Borssele Alpha platform and have now been marked as unforeseeable. last_img read more

‘Man Utd no longer attract world’s best’

first_imgOdion Ighalo’s Deadline Day move to Manchester United is proof the club can no longer attract the world’s best strikers, according to Eidur Gudjohnsen.Advertisement Read Also: Man United Move: It is now Eagles need Ighalo, Rohr“They needed somebody in. I think he was not their number one and I would be surprised if he was their number two or three as well.“He is getting an opportunity and he will definitely get minutes and we will see if he can do it.”Hasselbaink also says United’s struggles in the transfer market are even harder to understand after they sold Romelu Lukaku last summer and loaned Alexis Sanchez both to Inter Milan.He added: “They knew that they needed a new striker for a long time. I don’t know how much money that they have but it is Manchester United.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Former Watford striker Ighalo eventually emerged as United’s answer on loan until the end of the season, having earlier been unsuccessful in signing Erling Braut Haaland, who opted for Borusssia Dortmund, and Bournemouth’s Joshua King.Former Chelsea forward Gudjohnsen told the Transfer Talk podcast United were always going to struggle to recruit a top calibre striker during the January window.Asked how far back United have fallen, Gudjohnsen said: “It comes back to the time of the season of this [Ighalo] transfer as well. I don’t think any of the best strikers are available.” Loading…center_img He added: “I don’t think any of the best strikers are eager to join United anymore.”Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink says Ighalo, who has played in China since January 2017, is unlikely to have even been a third choice target for United.“He must be the luckiest man! Going to China, being away from Europe nobody seeing him for two and a half years since he was at Watford and then getting a loan move at United,” he said.“Wow. That doesn’t happen!“It says how far behind United are from Liverpool, Manchester City and even Chelsea. They have got a big job ahead. A largely uneventful January transfer window ended with United in a frantic last-gasp search for a striker to bolster their attacking options in the absence of injured England international Marcus Rashford.last_img read more

Wide open Kentucky Derby awaits after favourite scratched

first_img(REUTERS) – The Kentucky Derby is the first step toward Triple Crown glory and this year’s ‘Run for the Roses’ is more wide open than it has been in years after race favourite Omaha Beach was scratched due to injury.The betting line for today’s race went through a big shake-up after Omaha Beach, who was installed as the early 4-1 favourite, was pulled from the event on Wednesday after developing a non-life-threatening breathing problem.The absence of Omaha Beach opens the door for Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert, who is seeking to tie all-time trainer record for Kentucky Derby wins with six and now has the top three favourites in Game Winner, Roadster and Improbable. The top choice, at 9-2, is Game Winner, followed by Roadster and Improbable, who were both given 5-1 odds.But Baffert, who trained both American Pharoah and Justify to their Triple Crown wins in 2015 and 2018, respectively, is not getting ahead of himself going into the 1-1/2 mile race at Churchill Downs. “There are a lot of good horses in here,” said Baffert. “Unless we see something different on Derby Day, this is a nice evenly matched group of horses. I don’t see someone really popping off the screen.” Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith, who rode Justify to a Triple Crown and was supposed to be aboard Omaha Beach today, was named yesterday as a late replacement for Corey Lanerie aboard 30-1 longshot Cutting Humor.Another horse to watch will be Maximum Security (10-1) as the Jason Servis-trained bay colt enters the Kentucky undefeated in his four starts. The Kentucky Derby field was reduced to 19 horses yesterday when longshot Haikal was scratched with an abscess on left hoof. As a result, the rail will remain empty as War of Will, who had drawn the No.1 post, will now break from the second gate.There is rain in the forecast today and while it may stop by the time the horses set off at 18:46hrs ET (2246 GMT) it is most certain they will contest the race on a wet track. Wet conditions will prove beneficial to some horses, perhaps none more so than War of Will (20-1), who last November raced on a muddy track at Churchill Downs in his first start on dirt and breezed to a five-length victory.But the Mark Casse-trained colt may need all the help he can get after an unfavourable draw has the son of hot Sire War Front starting from a post that has not produced a winner since 1978.last_img read more

Wiltshire was able to close him off early in the fourth set for the win.In the semi-final, Wiltshire got the better of Bermuda’s Matthew Elliot 11-4, 11-2, 11-1 while Guyana’s Samuel Ince-Carvalhal was beaten by Benn 11-6, 7-11, 14-12, 11-9.

Westhill girls lacrosse tops Marcellus, 10-8

first_img Tags: girls lacrosseMarcellusWesthill But though Vetsch had five goals and Canny added three goals, no other Mustangs player helped them, and Westhill, with more options, fought their way in front during the second half.True, Rebecca Gilhooley had three goals and three assists, but aid came from Caroline Miller and Gianna Zerrillo, who each scored twice. Also, Reilly Geer, Grace Winkler and Kendra MacCaull earned goals, negating the nine saves from Marcellus goalie Kenai Cameron.A day earlier, neither team had much stress as Westhill went to Tully and prevailed 14-5 over the Black Knights, while Marcellus dominated Jordan-Elbridge in a 19-2 decision. Not wasting much time, Marcellus steadily built a 13-1 halftime advantage on J-E and just kept going, Katy Wangnsess leading the way with five goals as Vetsch got three goals and three assists.Canny also scored three times, adding two assists as Sarah Hutchings had two goals and one assist. Casey Conklin got a goal and two assists, with Lily Locastro, Madison Green, Maisie Moses, Madeline Caron and Elena Shaw also converting.Gabby Smart and Chelsea Curtis earned J-E’s lone goals, and Gabby Skotinski was busy in the net for the Eagles, finishing the night with 12 saves.Earlier that day, Westhill had a rare game on a natural-grass surface, but still took control against Tully late in the first half, building an 8-2 advantage on the Black Knights.And the Warriors protected that lead well, with three-goal hat tricks from four different players –Gilhooley, Winkler, Zerrillo and MacCaull.  Gilhooley also had five assists, with Miller getting three assists and Winkler two assists. Franny Argentieri stopped nine of the 14 shots she faced.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story center_img With the Westhill girls lacrosse team planted at no. 2 in the state Class D rankings and Marcellus still in the no. 6 spot, a whole lot of importance was attached to Wednesday night’s meeting besides the natural rivalry the two schools share.Knowing that they might meet each other for higher stakes later in the month, the Mustangs got the best part of the early going, but later on it was the Warriors, strong on both ends, able to take charge and pull out a 10-8 victory.As it turned out, the Mustangs were a two-player attack. Anna Vetsch and Laura Canny were responsible for every single goal during an active first half, and their work was enough to inch Marcellus in front 6-5 going to the break.last_img read more
