New low-sulphur bunker oil popular in Rotterdam

first_imgAs of 1 January 2020, sea-going vessels on the world’s oceans may only use fuel with a sulphur content of no more than 0.5%. The current maximum is 3.5%. High-sulphur fuel will only be permitted on vessels that have scrubbers – an installed filtration system – on board. The new low-sulphur bunker oil VLSFO (Very Low Sulphur Fuel Oil with a maximum 0.5% sulphur) has become extremely popular in Rotterdam, Europe’s largest bunker port. Half of all November bunker sales were for VLSFO. This became apparent from the bunkering notifications via the Port of Rotterdam Authority’s TimeToBunker App. (Image Courtesy; Freek van Arkel/Hollandse Hoogte / Port of Rotterdam) TimeToBunker App The TimeToBunker App shows that VLSFO sales have increased dramatically over the past two months: September 1,700 tonnes, October 32,000 tonnes and November 95,000 tonnes. This means that the VLSFO percentage within total fuel oil sales grew from 1.8% in September to 51.6% in November. This separation based on fuel oil sulphur levels can only be made in TimeToBunker. The sulphur level of fuel oil is not stated in standard bunkering notifications. However, Ronald Backers, the Port Authority’s bunkering expert, suspects that this trend is representative for all bunker sales in Rotterdam: ‘The TimeToBunker App has been used since February and is a huge success. Over a third of all bunkering notifications run via the app. I see no reason to assume that companies that still make standard bunkering notifications have completely different clients with completely different fuel oil purchasing behaviour.’ Although even stricter sulphur regulations apply to shipping on the North Sea and bunker oil may only contain 0.1% sulphur, many shipping companies in Rotterdam are ordering VLSFO, because they also sail intercontinentally and not just across the North Sea.

NEOSI’s WWE Fastlane Predictions

first_img Eli Mooneyham Related TopicsWWE Fastlane Elijah Mooneyham has been a dedicated sports fan his whole life. Born and raised in Cleveland, he has his best days when his hometown teams are winning. Elijah is currently on-air talent/producer on two shows, The Main Event and The Moon Hour, where you can find on AllSportsCleveland.com. He also has an insane passion for professional wrestling, so catch his opinions on the world of professional wrestling.center_img Tonight is WWE Fastlane, the last RAW Pay-Per-View before WrestleMania. All of the Superstars will be trying to get some momentum before the “Show of Shows” and it can start Sunday. Some of the big matches on this card include Kevin Owens defending his Universal Title against Goldberg, Roman Reigns going one-on-one with Braun Strowman and Bayley defending her RAW Women’s Championship against Charlotte.NEOSI’s Matt Loede, Vince McKee, Payton Vince and I are here to predict who we think will get victories tonight. Check out our picks below:Universal Championship- Kevin Owens (c) vs. GoldbergVM: Everyone believes it is a forgone conclusion that Goldberg wins, then drops the belt to Lesnar at Mania.  Those people would be wrong.  I see Owens retaining in a shocker as Lesnar interferes to cost Goldberg the match.  Owens will defend against and beat Jericho at Mania as well.  It won’t be until the summer that Balor returns to take the strap off of KO. Winner: Kevin OwensPV: Winner: GoldbergML: Winner: GoldbergEM: As much as I hope KO defends his title and takes on Jericho at ‘Mania, it’s super unlikely because McMahon wants his big matchup of Goldberg and Lesnar to be for the top prize on RAW. Goldberg wins this match in what could be less than five minutes. Winner: Goldberg Roman Reigns vs. Braun StrowmanVM: Should be interesting to see where they go with Strowman’s character after Reigns beats him cleanly and quickly. Winner: Roman ReignsPV: Winner: Braun StrowmanML: Winner: Braun StrowmanEM: I’m going to go for a Strowman victory here, as Undertaker gets involved to cost Reigns the match and set up their ‘Mania match. Winner: Braun StrowmanRAW Women’s Championship- Bayley (c) vs. Charlotte Flair VM: The Queen of the Women’s Division Charlotte, reclaims her title and stays unbeaten in single action heading into Wrestlemania as Banks turns on Bayley to cost her the title. Winner: CharlottePV: Winner: Bayley (DQ)ML: Winner: BayleyEM: Charlotte does not lose on PPV and will not lose tonight. I think that time will come at WrestleMania, but she needs to win the belt here for that to come to fruition. Winner: Charlotte FlairSamoa Joe vs. Sami ZaynVM: I see Zayn taking this one in an upset, but much like he did last year with Owens at times, allow himself to obtain a gigantic post-match beat down.  This will further help Zayn get over as an underdog and Joe as a hit man type character. Winner: Sami ZaynPV: Winner: Samoa JoeML: Winner: Samoa JoeEM: Samoa Joe is receiving almost the same push as Balor did when he made the jump to the red brand. As talented as Zayn is, he is just here for fodder for Samoa Joe. Winner: Samoa JoeWWE Cruiserweight Championship- Neville (c) vs. Jack GallagherVM: The WWE would be insane to take the title off of Neville heading into Mania, they won’t.  This one is a gimme pick! Winner: NevillePV: Winner: NevilleML: Winner: NevilleEM: Neville is a great heel and even better staple for this division. The guy to take the belt off him is Austin Aries, who should be returning sooner rather than later. Winner: NevilleRAW Tag Team Championship- Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson (c) vs. Enzo Amore & Big CassVM: The WWE creative team is so convinced that when a guy or team is this incredibly over, then they need to lose because it won’t crush their popularity and their opponents can use the rub.  That’s why Ziggler barely ever won as a face and why Gallows & Anderson will not be dropping the titles. Winners: Gallows and AndersonPV: Winner: Gallows and AndersonML: Winner: Enzo Amore and Big CassEM: Gallows and Anderson are finally getting the respect they deserve. I think Enzo and Cass will split up before The Club loses the belts. Winners: Gallows and AndersonSasha Banks vs. Nia JaxVM: How many times does Jax need to crush Banks before it gets old?  Perhaps one more time as it will once again go the way of Jax easily Sunday night. Winner: Nia JaxPV: Winner: Sasha BanksML: Winner: Sasha BanksEM: Basic WWE logic says because Banks has been getting destroyed, she’ll get the victory here. That is all. Winner: Sasha BanksRich Swann & Akira Tozawa vs. The Brian Kendrick & Noam DarVM: Winners: Swann/TozawaPV: Winners: The Brian Kendrick and Noam DarML: Winners: The Brian Kendrick and Noam DarEM: Tozawa can get a PPV win here and will, considering he is one of the only Cruiserweights who still has credibility. Babyfaces for the win. Winners: Rich Swann and Akira Tozawalast_img read more

Penumpang Keluhkan Ada ‘Kamera Tersembunyi’ di Layar Hiburan Singapore Airlines

first_imgSumber: News.com.au Jika Anda merupakan tipe orang yang selalu menutupi kamera di komputer atau laptop dengan menggunakan selotip – seperti yang dilakukan Mark Zuckerberg, maka Anda mungkin tidak akan terlalu senang jika Anda menemukan sebuah kamera ‘tersembunyi’ di layar yang terletak di belakang bangku penumpang di sebuah penerbangan. Sudah barang tentu perasaan seperti dimata-matai akan senantiasa mendampingi perjalanan Anda hingga sampai di terminal bandara yang Anda tuju.Baca Juga: Terima Airbus A350-900ULR, Singapore Airlines Siap Terbang ke New Jersey Non-StopYa, gambaran peristiwa di atas ternyata dialami oleh maskapai asal negeri tetangga, Singapore Airlines, dimana flag carrier Singapura tersebut mendapat keluhan dari sejumlah penumpang terkait kehadiran kamera pada layar di belakang bangku penumpang ini. Sebagaimana yang dilansir KabarPenumpang.com dari laman digitaltrends.com (19/2/2019), pihak Singapore Airlines menjelaskan bahwa kamera tersebut terhubung dengan sejumlah perangkat perekaman atau pengambilan gambar apapun. Penjelasan Singapore Airlines tersebut dilontarkan setelah seorang penumpang layanan tersebut mengunggah cuitan – lengkap dengan beberapa foto dan mengunggahnya ke jejaring sosial Twitter. Adalah Vitaly Kamluk, seorang pengguna Twitter yang mengunggah cuitan tersebut, dan tidak lupa ia juga me-mention akun Twitter resmi Singapore Airlines, @SingaporeAir dalam cuitannya tersebut.“Saya baru saja menemukan sebuah sensor yang seolah menatap saya dari bagian belakang bangku yang berada di depan saya. Adakah penjelasan lebih lanjut mengenai benda yang menyerupai sebuah kamera ini? Apakah @SingaporeAir bisa memberikan klarifikasi terkait hal ini?” tulis Vitaly Kamluk di Twitter pada Minggu (17/2/2019).Menanggapi cuitan dari Vitaly tersebut, pihak Singapore Airlines menegaskan bahwa pihaknya tidak pernah menggunakan kamera tersebut dan tidak memiliki rencana untuk mengaktifkannya. Anggota dari aliansi penerbangan Star Alliance ini juga menjelaskan bahwa kamera tersebut sudah ada sejak pertama kali pesawat terkait datang, alias tidak ada permintaan khusus dari Singapore Airlines untuk menambahkan fitur tersebut.Sementara itu menurut situs berita Singapura, The Strait Times, sistem hiburan dalam penerbangan yang dimaksud dibuat hasil kerja sama Panasonic dan perusahaan transportasi dan teknologi Thales, dan telah dipasang pada pesawat Airbus A350/A380, Boeing 777-300ER, dan Boeing 787-10, dimana totalnya ada 84 unit pesawat yang memiliki kamera tidak aktif tersebut.Baca Juga: Jaga Kesehatan Penumpang di Penerbangan Jarak Jauh, Singapore Airlines Gandeng Canyon RanchDampak dari kejadian ini adalah penumpang banyak yang khawatir karena mungkin saja data visual mereka ‘diambil’ oleh pihak maskapai selama mereka mengudara.Kendati pihak Singapore Airlines telah menegaskan bahwa kamera tersebut tidaklah aktif, namun satu langkah preventif yang bisa Anda lakukan jika kebetulan Anda hendak mengudara menggunakan Singapore Airlines dalam waktu dekat ini adalah, siapkan selotip untuk menutup kamera tersebut.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Relatedlast_img read more
