But before hitting the beach or your favorite park, here are tips from Sherri Flynt, registered/licensed dietitian, Florida Hospital Center for Nutritional Excellence, for packing a healthier picnic basket and ensuring that the only “bugs” joining you are ants.Tap into summer’s bounty. Take plenty of chopped veggies as a crunchy alternative to chips. Try broccoli slaw, tossed with a low-fat poppy seed dressing, instead of traditional slaw. Pack berries, watermelon slices and frozen grapes for a tasty treat on a hot day.Salad alternatives. Rethink mayonnaise-based salads. They’re higher in fat and calories and loved by foodborne illness-causing bacteria. Oil and vinegar dressings (less oil, more vinegar) not only cut back on fat, but the acid keeps food safer. Try out this light and refreshing English cucumber salad.Healthier indulgences for your sweet tooth. If fresh fruit doesn’t satisfy your picnic sweet tooth, bring bite-sized desserts. Angel food cake topped with fresh berries and a bit of light whipped cream, keep it onice, is also a healthier option.Grill safely. Grilling is a picnic favorite. And grilling healthfully is important. To minimizeproductionof compounds that pose a cancer risk, marinate before grilling using thyme, sage, garlic, or rosemary. Because heat and fat are the real culprits, trim all visible fat, flip your meat, poultry, or fish often, and grill at a lower temperature (below 325º F). But don’t undercook. And, be sure to wash your hands! Handling raw meat is a sure fire way to spread bacteria to other foods you may touch.Keep all food safe. According to the Food and Drug Administration, summer months see an increase in foodborne illnesses. To keep those “bugs” from joining your picnic, keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold. Cold foods should be kept in a cooler and on ice throughout the picnic. Hot foods (like chicken or hot dogs) should be covered in foil to retain the heat. And don’t let any food sit out for very long.Stay well hydrated. While enjoying the outdoors, it’s easy to get dehydrated, especially children as they don’t want to stop their fun to grab a drink. Have plenty of cool water on hand and encourage everyone to drink liberally.Also, have a plan for being active. Whether it’s canoeing, playing a game of Frisbee football, or kicking a soccer ball, picnics are a great time for families to move together.

Wärtsilä to equip five LNG gas-carriers with fully integrated bridge systems under Arctic LNG-2 project

first_imgBoth navigation bridges of all five LNG tankers will be equipped with the Multifunction Display system Wärtsilä secures contract to equip five LNG gas-carriers. (Credit: Wärtsilä) The technology group Wärtsilä was contracted to deliver a complete bridge systems installation for five ice breaking LNG-fueled tankers to be constructed for the Arctic LNG-2 project. The navigational systems are delivered by Wärtsilä Voyage, the new business responsible for digital solutions and decision support tools to enhance safety and reliability of shipping operations.The order with Wärtsilä Voyage was placed in the first quarter of 2020 and now is in process of execution, in partnership with Samsung Heavy Industries Co., Ltd shipyard.Under the contract two equivalent bridges will be placed in vessels’ superstructure; one of them is turned 180 degrees from the conventional position. This peculiar construction will allow icebreakers to move both forward and aft, thus ensuring safe vessels navigation under adverse climate conditions of the Arctics.Both navigation bridges of all five LNG tankers will be equipped with the Multifunction Display system consisting of 12 multifunction workstations with a full set of basic applications, including ECDIS, Radar, Conning navigation information display system, BAMS alarm tracking system, and Navi-Planner for advanced route planning. The scope of Wärtsilä solutions also includes VSAT and IRIDIUM satellite communication systems. The workstations are fully integrated into a unified system, which allows the main operational functions to be duplicated, thereby improving safety of ice navigation.Similar sets of equipment were installed on gas-carriers built under “Yamal LNG” project during 2014-2018 (with «Christophe de Margerie» as the lead ship in the series).As of today, all the navigational systems planned for installation are ready for integration with Wärtsilä Fleet Operations Solution (FOS) – the first solution that puts previously fragmented services under one platform to lift ship-to-shore synergies and improve operational processes.“I’m sure that our experience in Yamal-LNG project, along with the high professionalism of South Korean shipbuilders, and the advantages of integrated technologies, will make the LNG tankers under construction truly effective for solving urgent tasks and developing safe navigation in the Arctics,” said Igor Gapeshko, Managing Director of Transas Navigator product line within Wärtsilä Voyage.All the equipment installed on board is fully compliant with the requirements of the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping (RS) and Bureau Veritas (BV). It is designed and tested to operate all year-round in heavy Arctic conditions at temperatures down to 52°C below zero. The installation of the equipment is scheduled for 2020-2023.The Arctic LNG-2 project is dedicated to production, storage and shipment of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and gas condensate from the Salmanovsky gas field of the Gydan Peninsula. The project involves the construction of three LNG production lines with a capacity of 6.6 million tons per year, as well as stable gas condensate. The total capacity of three lines is projected to be 19.8 million tons of LNG per year.Since its inception in 1974, Samsung Heavy Industries Co. has successfully completed many of the world’s largest shipbuilding and offshore engineering, procurement, construction projects for polar regions. Amongst others, it has developed and built the world’s first Arctic shuttle tanker, Liquefied Natural Gas Floating Production Storage and Offloading units (LNG FPSOs), developed and constructed various Arctic icebreakers and container ships.

FIFA Slams Fresh Two-year Ban on Adamu

first_imgThe adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee of FIFA has slammed fresh, world-wide, two-year ban on former Director General of National Sports Commission (NSC), Dr Amos Adamu.The committee chaired by Hans-Joachim Eckert, banned the former CAF and FIFA executive committee member from taking part in any kind of football-related activity at national and international level.A statement issued after the committee’s sitting in Zurich, Switzerland yesterday said Adamu’s fresh ban was as a result of the investigation conducted by Dr Cornel Borbély, chairman of the investigatory chamber of the Ethics Committee, which resulted in a final report being submitted to the adjudicatory chamber on 2 December 2016. Adjudicatory proceedings were formally opened on 20 December 2016 against Adamu who had similarly been banned for three years in 2010 for breaching FIFA’s ethics on bribery. That ban led to his losing his position as an executive committee member at FIFA and CAF.“The adjudicatory chamber determined that, through his involvement in the organisation of an event in 2010, while being a member of the (then) FIFA Executive Committee, Mr Adamu violated articles 13 (General rules of conduct), 15 (Loyalty) and 19 (Conflicts of interest) of the FIFA Code of Ethics,” the statement read in part.According to FIFA, the two-year ban on Adamu took effect from tuesday, February 28, 2017.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
