The Port of Rotterdam has launched a new company through which it would offer Pronto, an application for standardized data exchange on port calls, to ports around the world.The company that will be known as PortXchange Products BV was launched on August 8. It will allow Port of Rotterdam to join forces with global partners in the next few years and offer the application to interested parties.Together with Shell and A.P. Moller – Maersk, PortXchange will initially offer Pronto to several ports outside the Netherlands.“Pronto will be offered in several ports in Europe and the US before the end of the year,” Allard Castelein, CEO Port of Rotterdam Authority, said.“We are moving towards a global, end-to-end digitally connected operating environment for shipping, as in the airline industry. For example, at Shell, our onshore digital center is able to analyse 500 data points a second in real time from each ship we manage,” Grahaeme Henderson, Vice President of Shell Shipping & Maritime, said.“In partnering on Pronto, we can see opportunities to extend this work to optimizing port operations.”PortXchange will aim to improve the efficiency of port calls and help reduce emissions, both in the port as well as between ports, through just-in-time sailing.“The aim of the Pronto platform, to enable just in time arrival and optimize the port stay of our vessels, enables us to achieve our end goal of reducing our CO2 emissions,” Kent Stig Hagbarth, Head of Operations Execution at A.P. Moller-Maersk, added.
Downgraded to a tropical depression, “Hanna” passed over the US-Mexico border with winds near 50 mph (85 kph), the National Hurricane Center said. It unloaded more than 12 inches (30 centimeters) of rain on parts of South Texas and northeastern Mexico. CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – A day after roaring ashore as a hurricane, “Hanna” lashed the Texas Gulf Coast on Sunday with high winds and drenching rains that destroyed boats, flooded streets and knocked out power across a region already reeling from a surge in coronavirus cases. Border communities whose health care systems were already strained by COVID-19 cases — with some patients being airlifted to larger cities — found themselves under siege from the first hurricane of the 2020 Atlantic season. There were no immediate reports of any deaths on either side of the border. (AP) A boat sinks in the Packery Channel during Hurricane “Hanna,” Saturday, July 25, 2020, in North Padre Island, Texas.

Bailly was a £30m investment for Manchester United back in 2016, but despite showing some promise, the defender has struggled with injury issues and has only made two Premier League appearances this season. With Harry Maguire becoming captain at Old Trafford and Victor Lindelof generally establishing himself as the Englishman’s main center-back partner, opportunities may be limited for Bailly when he returns from injury – and his former club have spotted an opening. According to Fichajes (via Sport Witness), Villarreal believes they can give Bailly the chance to resurrect his career back where it began to accelerate. The 26-year-old only spent one season at Villarreal, but his form in that campaign earned him a move to United, as well as a tidy profit for the Spanish club.Advertisement Villarreal are reportedly weighing up a bid to take Eric Bailly back from Manchester United, four years after selling him. The La Liga outfit are in search of defensive reinforcements, and a return for Bailly would be a high-profile acquisition for the club nicknamed the ‘Yellow Submarine’. No price tag is mentioned for Bailly, nor is United’s stance on allowing him to leave. It is worth remembering that the Ivory Coast international signed a new two-year contract at Old Trafford in January, despite his injury troubles. Arsenal and Tottenham had been mentioned as interested parties in the past, before Man Utd disappointed them by extending Bailly’s contract. read also:Villarreal want to re-sign Man United’s Eric Bailly After returning to action briefly in March, Bailly reiterated how happy he was at United, and thanked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for his faith and patience. “Now, I’m so happy to be back in action and in good health,” he said, shortly before the season was halted. “I’m happy that my training is going well and to the normal plan, after so many months out, so I really want to make the most of this moment in my life.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading…

By Amal JayasingheSRI LANKA opener Upul Tharanga on Wednesday became the first player to be grilled by detectives in a probe investigating claims that the 2011 Cricket World Cup final was fixed.The 35-year-old batsman and wicketkeeper was questioned for two hours by the Special Investigation Unit (SIU) examining the conduct of the final, which Sri Lanka lost to India.“They asked a few questions in connection with the ongoing investigation. I gave my statement,” Tharanga told reporters without giving further details.Tharanga, who scored two runs off 20 deliveries in the match at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium, was called in after investigators quizzed chief selector Aravinda de Silva for nearly six hours on Tuesday.Police said they will next interview Kumar Sangakkara, the captain of the losing side and the current president of the Marylebone Cricket Club in London, who was asked to report to the SIU on Thursday.There was no immediate comment from the 42-year-old, who last month said the allegations should be referred to the International Cricket Council (ICC).The Sri Lankan probe was launched after the then-sports minister claimed that Sri Lanka threw the April 2011 match.“I feel I can talk about it now,” Mahindananda Aluthgamage told a local TV network last month. “I am not connecting players, but some sections were involved.”Sri Lanka batted first and scored 274-6 off 50 overs. They appeared in a commanding position when Indian superstar Sachin Tendulkar was out for 18.But India turned the game around dramatically, thanks in part to poor fielding and bowling by Sri Lanka, who were led by Kumar Sangakkara.India won the final by six wickets.Sangakkara and his deputy Mahela Jayawardena quit their positions in the team after the stunning defeat.The toss of the final was also controversial as it was done twice. Match referee Jeff Crowe apparently did not hear “heads” called by Sangakkara and asked Indian skipper M. S. Dhoni to toss again.Sangakkara won the toss and elected to bat, a decision that was criticised in local media because the Sri Lankans were considered to be better at chasing at the time.Sri Lankan cricket has been plagued by several corruption scandals, including claims of match-fixing ahead of a 2018 Test against England.Last month the local cricket board said the ICC was investigating three unnamed ex-players over corruption claims.Match-fixing was made a criminal offence in November. Offenders face fines of up to 100 million rupees ($555,000) and up to 10 years’ jail.

The former CAF official said Super Soccer is an alternative to the traditional soccer and he strongly believes that the game would become great and acceptable very soon.“One of my main objectives is for Super Soccer to have a big presence in the United States and Africa,” Asomugha said.Some of the coaches are expected to go for further training in Egypt and the United Stated later.Unlike the traditional football that features 11 players, Super Soccer features nine players and a goalkeeper, with four referees.Super Soccer was first test-run in Lagos last month at the Legacy Pitch of the National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
USC was well represented at the NFL Scouting Combine that began last week and concluded Monday, with seven Trojans participating in workouts and interviews at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis with hopes of impressing NFL teams.The Trojans were represented by junior linebacker Su’a Cravens, redshirt senior quarterback Cody Kessler, redshirt senior running back Tre Madden, redshirt senior fullback Soma Vainuku, senior center Max Tuerk, redshirt senior defensive lineman Antwaun Woods and senior cornerback Kevon Seymour, all of whom played key roles during their time at USC.Kessler ran the 40-yard dash in 4.89 seconds and posted a 29.5-inch vertical and a 104-inch broad jump, which don’t jump off the page. He showed off his throwing arm well, however, and is projected to be a late-round pick. Kessler also has been working on another aspect of his game.“For me, the mental side of it is something that is big, being able to recognize defenses,” Kessler told the Orange County Register. “Obviously everyone can throw and everyone can play at the next level, but for me, I’ve always wanted to be a step ahead of everyone on the mental side of it.”Cravens, projected to be one of the Trojans’ higher draft picks, chose not to run a 40-yard dash on the advice of his agent and trainer. He received mixed reviews, with his 27-inch vertical leap ranking worst among linebackers along with a below-average 16 reps on the bench press. Still, Cravens passed the so-called “eye-test” for athleticism and was impressive during drills and team interviews.Cravens believes that just because he’s a USC product doesn’t give him a free pass to a high draft slot.“I’ve been asked if I’m a prima donna,” Cravens told the Register. “I get that, coming from ‘SC. People think a lot of ‘SC guys are entitled, but things have changed since the glory days. I think I’m a hard-working guy.”Madden and Tuerk, who were both hampered by injuries last season, will seek to prove themselves at the next level. Madden finished second among running backs with 24 reps in the bench press, but his participation was limited to just the one event. Tuerk, who saw his season end early due to a torn ACL, posted 22 reps and weighed in at 298 pounds, 13 more than what is listed by USC.His ability to play center, guard and tackle may be an asset for NFL teams.“It was absolutely a positive,” Tuerk told the Los Angeles Times. “It shows that I’m versatile and able to play anywhere on the line.”Vainuku, who by far had the most creative haircut at the combine, also impressed with 26 bench reps, the third most for fullbacks. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.68 seconds, ranking second for his position.As for the remaining defensive players, Seymour, who received inconsistent playing time last season, recorded a 40-yard dash time of 4.39 seconds, the fastest by a Trojan in a decade. Woods did not participate but was present at the combine.The next chance the prospects have to showcase their skills for teams will be USC’s pro day on March 23. The NFL Draft will take place from April 28-30 in Chicago.
Sunderland chairman Ellis Short said Moyes was “by far and away first choice” to take control of the Black Cats and that he had tried to recruit him several times before. “He is a man whose football pedigree speaks for itself and is someone I have long admired,” said Short. “I have spoken with him on many occasions and I have always been hugely impressed.“He was my number one managerial target for the last five appointments, but his desire to honour existing contracts meant we were not able to bring him to Sunderland previously. To be able to finally welcome him as our manager is fantastic news for the club.”Moyes, who started his managerial career at Preston North End, was voted LMA Manager of the Year three times during an 11-year spell at Everton.He succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson as Manchester United boss on his fellow Scot’s recommendation when he retired after a trophy-laden 26 years in charge at Old Trafford. But despite signing a six-year deal with the then Premier League champions, he was sacked 10 months later and went on to manage Real Sociedad in Spain.Moyes was tipped to take over at Aston Villa earlier in the summer but ruled himself out of the running and the job went to Roberto Di Matteo.“I look forward to continuing the good work done by Sam,” said Moyes of the Sunderland role.He will be the club’s fourth manager in less than three years, following Gus Poyet, Dick Advocaat and Allardyce.Former Bolton, Newcastle and West Ham manager Allardyce joined Sunderland in October 2015, with the club second bottom in the Premier League and winless in their opening eight games. But they recovered to finish 17th, one place above their relegated north-east rivals Newcastle United.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram David Moyes has been appointed Sunderland manager on a four-year deal. The former Everton and Manchester United boss, 53, takes charge at the Stadium of Light after Sam Allardyce left to become England manager.“I have taken over a big British club, with a great support, and I’m looking forward to working in the Premier League again,” said Moyes.The Scot has been out of work since being sacked by Spanish club Real Sociedad in November. Allardyce was confirmed as Roy Hodgson’s successor with the national team on Friday.
