Commissioned by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and operated on NERC’s behalf by the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) for the United Kingdom’s marine science community, Discovery’s wide capability will allow deep-ocean research in the remotest and least hospitable parts of our planet, from tropical seas to polar waters.Once named by Her Royal Highness at NOC’s Empress Dock, Discovery joins RRS James Cook as one of a brace of vessels with deep ocean capability that will deliver NERC’s science priorities for decades to come. Her Royal Highness also named James Cook in 2007.At almost 100-metres in length, and with a displacement of 6,075 tonnes, Discovery will carry a marine crew of 24 and has accommodation for 28 scientists and technicians. The ship is fitted with a comprehensive suite of laboratories, handling systems and sensors that will enable her to carry out research spanning a wide range of ocean issues that impact on society.RRS Discovery will play a key role in the scientific mission to understand the role of the oceans in the Earth system and to carry out research that will deliver significant economic and societal benefits – particularly in areas including climate change, ocean acidification, the impact of human activity on delicate ecosystems, mapping earthquakes and underwater landslides and investigating fascinating features such as hydrothermal vents. Scientists will be able to sample and measure the properties of the atmosphere above the ocean surface, the water column itself and the seabed of the deep ocean.The vessel will also be used to deploy submersible equipment, such as the Isis remotely operated vehicle, or NOC’s fleet of Autosub autonomous underwater vehicles, all of which are part of the MARS (Marine Autonomous & Robotics Systems) facility – one of Eight Great Technologies identified as crucial to the UK’s future prosperity.Discovery is the latest in an illustrious line of vessels bearing the name that date back to 1602 when the East India Company commissioned the first recorded Discovery to explore the waters now known as the Hudson Strait in the long search for the North-West Passage. In the 20th Century a new Discovery was specially commissioned for the British National Antarctic Expedition of 1901-04, that included Antarctic heroes Captain Scott and Ernest Shackleton.The new ship’s immediate predecessor ended a 50-year career in 2012, and was the platform for some of the most important marine science carried out during that period – truly a half-century of discovery.

The iPad offers a lot in a relatively compact package. The device can be used to watch movies, read books and magazines, listen to music and play games. That’s probably why those who travel often might carry their beloved iPad with them on the plane. That’s also why it makes perfect sense that one airline sees the iPad as an opportunity to make some additional revenue.Jetstar, a low-cost Australian airline, and also a subsidiary of Qantas, performed a trial back June in which 30 iPads were tested over a two week period on domestic flights over an hour in length. Based on the success of that trial, the airline is ready to move forward with a full deployment of the program which will allow passengers to rent an iPad for AUD$10 a flight beginning in April. The program’s scheduled launch will be dependant upon the airline finalizing license agreements with Apple. The airline hopes to use the iPads on its A320s in Australia and Asia Pacific in addition to is entire domestic and international network.AdChoices广告Airlines have already shown signs they are willing to embrace the iPad. Back in June of last year Malaysia Airlines began offering self-checkout kiosks powered by iPads and the airline’s own MHmobile app. Other airlines have also started offering iPad apps including Oneworld which is an alliance of airlines including American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Iberia, Japan Airlines, LAN, Mexicana and a number of other carriers.Read more at the Australian Business Traveller.

Posted: June 27, 2018 20 charged with drug trafficking after yearlong federal investigation SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Federal indictments unsealed in San Diego Wednesday charge 20 people with cocaine, heroin, marijuana and methamphetamine trafficking, authorities reported.The suspects — residents of Chula Vista, El Cajon, San Diego and Spring Valley — were arrested as part of a yearlong investigation involving months of federal wiretaps, numerous undercover drug and gun buys, and extensive surveillance, according to prosecutors.Many of the defendants are associates of local street gangs, and some have ties to Mexican drug cartels, officials said.Sixteen of the suspects are in federal or state custody, and authorities are continuing to search for the others. Six of the accused were arraigned before U.S. Magistrate Clinton Averitte on Tuesday.“Drugs are destroying lives and families and bringing violence to our communities, and we are more committed than ever to prosecuting these cases,” San Diego-area U.S. Attorney Adam Braverman said. “Gangs are most often the distributors of these deadly poisons, and we have a special resolve to go after them.”The case is headed by the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force, a partnership that brings together the combined expertise and unique abilities of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.The principal mission of the collaborative program is to identify, disrupt, dismantle and prosecute high-level members of illicit drug and weapon trafficking enterprises, and money laundering organizations, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in San Diego.

France’s largest, and the world’s second-largest retailer, by sales, has announced its plan to exit the Indian market.In a statement issued Monday, the French retailer, which has been operating five “cash and carry” wholesale stores in India since 2010, said that it would begin shutting its stores from the end of September.”Until that time, the company will continue to be fully engaged with all its employees, suppliers, partners and customers,” the company said, in the statement.Since March, Carrefour has been in talks with Indian companies and retailers over the sale of its Indian assets. The company is exiting India after it failed to reach an agreement over a joint venture with Sunil Mittal’s Bharti group, which had earlier partnered with Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT) in India.Franck Kenner, a spokesperson at Carrefour’s India unit, declined to comment on whether it was planning to sell any of its stores to rivals, Bloomberg reported Monday.Carrefour’s exit from India is being seen as a part of CEO Georges Plassat’s three-year revival plan.In August 2012, shortly after taking over as CEO, Plassat had called for “vigilant” cost control across the business. The company has since exited underperforming markets, including Singapore, Malaysia and Greece in order to focus on key markets in Europe, China and Brazil.The company’s five stores in India reported losses of $17 million in 2012, Business Standard reported Tuesday.Although India opened up its $500 billion retail sector to foreign direct investment, or FDI, in multi-brand retail in 2012, laws requiring mandatory local sourcing and the freedom given to each state to decide on the entry of global chains have discouraged many companies from investing in the country.Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT), the world’s largest retailer, had last year shelved its plans to open a retail store in the country. Following the Indian government’s decision to allow foreign companies to own a 51 percent stake in the multi-brand retail segment, only British supermarket operator Tesco (LON: TSCO) has announced plans to open stores in the country.
