WWL ALS pipes up again

first_imgThe mill pipe, which weighed 70 tonnes and had the dimensions 7.7 m x 4.9 m x 4.95 m, was transported from Slavonski Brod in Croatia to Aljustrel in Portugal. The cargo was transported from Slavonski Brod to Vukovar, where it was lifted onto a barge and delivered to the Netherland, before being shipped to the Portugese port of Sines.

Egyptian court stops transfer of Red Sea islands to Saudi Arabia

first_imgAn Egyptian court on Monday rejected a government plan to transfer two Red Sea islands to Saudi Arabia.The Egyptian government announced the decision to transfer the islands during a visit to the Northern African country by the Saudi King in April.A maritime declaration accord would see Egypt cede control of Tiran and Sanafir.The move prompted protests by Egyptians who did not approve of the transfer of the islands.State news agency MENA reports that the court’s decision was based on “irrefutable evidence” as well as local and international practices which removed any doubt that the islands’ sovereignty belonged to Egypt alone.Two leading human rights lawyers had challenged the demarcation accord in Egypt’s administrative court system, which deals with cases involving the government and public entities.last_img read more

Pat Aaron defends decision to file lawsuit

first_imgProlific song writer Pat AaronProlific song writer Pat Aaron has brushed aside claims that his decision to sue Marlon Giraudel for proceeds of a Showdown Mas Camp, NYC Invasion show held on August 10, 2013 is based on greed.Giraudel confirmed to Dominica Vibes on Thursday morning that Pat Aaron and Burnham Stowe had filed a civil suit claiming US$ 25,000 from him.The suit was filed on 3rd October 2013 in the Civil Court of the State of New York, as confirmed by Giraudel, who stated that he will respond to the lawsuit through his lawyer and declined further comment. “This is not about money, it is about respect; it is about my respect and that of my family,” Aaron wrote in a statement to Dominica Vibes on Thursday.“We live in a civil society, at least I believe that, and when people can’t resolve misunderstandings they take the matter to court. Let me reiterate, this is about respect and not money, it’s not about grudge, I had nothing against the man as a matter of fact,” the statement continued.Aaron explained that the salary he receives from his job as a tax accountant in the US is sufficient to support his family and therefore there is no need for dishonesty on his part. In fact, he uses “a lot of that money to keep the music department going”.He stated that he continues to assist the calypso art form and artistes although “there is no net profit in this business yet I continue to do it”. Aaron, who acknowledged that his continued dedication and support to the calypso art from despite little profit, “makes me a bad businessman but I am a song writer more than a business man”.“This is all about respect; people who know me or who have dealt with me know I am not about money,” he emphasized.Aaron said further that he is disappointed in Giraudel’s behavior because he “helped him tremendously and looked out for him like a son”. “A man may get away disrespecting me sometimes, but when it comes down to disrespecting my family too, I believe a man has to rise and defend. This is not about money. It all about respect,” Aaron concluded.Dominica Vibes News 239 Views   27 comments EntertainmentLocalNews Pat Aaron defends decision to file lawsuit by: – November 14, 2013 Share Sharecenter_img Share Tweet Sharing is caring!last_img read more

Saat Terjadi Pembajakan, Inilah Sinyal Rahasia Yang Dapat Dikirimkan Oleh Pilot

first_imgDengan begitu pihak otoritas bandara dapat melakukan tindakan yang diperlukan sebagai langkah respon lanjutan. Umumnya para pembajak akan memaksa pilot untuk membuka pinti kokpit dengan ancaman nyawa kepada awak kabin dan penumpang.Tapi dalam kondisi super darurat, bila pilot wajib mempertahankan kendali pesawat, maka pintu kokpit masih cukup kuat dengan proteksi moda penguncian dari dalam. Menurut kantor berita BBC ada tiga moda untuk pengaturan kunci pada pintu kokpit. Yang pertama adala normal, artinya pintu dapat diakses oleh awak kabin yang memang sudah mengetahui password. Kemudian ada pilihan akses ‘unlocked’ dan ‘locked,’ perbedaan diantara keduanya adalah prosedur untuk mendapatkan kemudahannya.‘Unlocked’ digunakan saat seorang pilot ingin keluar sebentar dan perlu masuk lagi, sementara ‘locked’ adalah saat pilot mengganti kode password dan tetap seperti itu selama lima menit, dan mencegah siapa pun untuk mengetahui kode tersebut.Lain dari itu masih ada metode squawking, yakni kode identifikasi empat digit yang dimasukkan oleh pilot ke dalam transponder untuk setiap kali melakukan penerbangan. Squawk membantu pusat kendali lalu lintas udara mengenali masing-masing pesawat. Ada beberapa kode yang bisa digunakan untuk melaporkan keadaan darurat. Untuk pembajakan, pilot bisa menggunakan kode 7500. Untuk masalah komunikasi, pilot menggunakan kode 7600, sementara untuk keadaan darurat lainnya, pilot bisa memasukkan kode 7700 ke transponder.Baca juga: Neerja Bhanot – Mengenang Tameng Hidup Tragedi Pan Am Penerbangan 73Transponder adalah sebuah pemancar radio di dalam kokpit yang terkoneksi dengan radar darat. Ketika transponder menerima sinyal dari radar sekunder darat yang lebih canggih, alat itu mengirim kode squawk yang berisi posisi pesawat, ketinggian dan tanda panggilannya. Secara konsisten, transponder menerima ping dari radar, sehingga pusat kendali lalu lintas bisa mengetahui kecepatan dan arah pesawat.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedKenapa Pintu Kokpit Harus dalam Keadaan Terkunci dan Anti Peluru?

Melihat tren yang ada, terutama belajar dari insiden 9/11 di New York, pihak Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) lantas memberi standar pengamanan ekstra pada kokpit, salah satunya dengan pintu yang diperkuat dengan material tahan peluru dan pemberlakukan sistem kunci yang kendalinya dapat diatur dari dalam kokpit.Baca juga: Pembajakan Pesawat Terlama, 39 Hari Kelam Penumpang El Al Flight 426Baik bila pembajak sudah mampu merangseng ke dalam kokpit atau belum, saat informasi bahaya datang, maka prosedur penanganan darurat sudah wajib disampaikan pilot kepada petugas Air Traffic Controller (ATC). Seperti diungkapkan dalam situs (17/11/2017), ada sejumlah kode rahasia yang dapat digunakan pilot untuk mengabarkan kondisi pembajakan. Diantaranya saat pesawat melakukan pendaratan, pilot bisa menggunakana ‘bahasa’ isyarat lewat sayap. Seperti pilot dapat memanfaatkan ayunan  flap yang digunakan untuk pengereman pesawat sebagai kode kepada petugas ATC atau keamanan bandara.last_img read more
