Chinese shipyard Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding has hired France-based Gaztransport et Technigaz (GTT) to design liquefied natural gas tanks for two floating storage and regasification units (FSRUs).The contract is related to two dual purpose vessels, which are capable of operating as efficient LNG carriers and FSRUs, which are under construction at Shanghai, China. The vessels are being built for LNG transportation company Dynagas and are scheduled to be delivered in 2021.Under the deal, GTT will design the LNG tanks of both units, each with a capacity of 174,000 m3. The French marine engineering firm said that the membrane cryogenic containment system NO96 GW, with glass wool insulation, will be used for the LNG storage on board. Currently, 14 vessels in operation and 42 on order use this technology.“We are pleased to once again accompany the ship-owner Dynagas in its continued development in the LNG industry and to contribute to the very first FSRUs built by our Chinese partner Hudong-Zhonghua. This new order highlights the trusting relationships GTT maintains with this shipyard, which is part of the biggest shipbuilding group in China,” Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT, said.

He knew we had some hard hitters and a very talented team! “I know they will remember us for next year, we did leave an impression and that’s a good thing.” “These bigger schools are making us better and we are learning from each game.”Raiders Coach Robyn Greiwe.
Former Spurs chairman Lord Sugar also criticised Villas-Boas’s tactics earlier this week, but Dembele is standing firmly behind his boss. Asked if the recent criticism of Villas-Boas had been fair, the Tottenham midfielder said: “No, of course not. The manager is working hard to give everyone confidence. “The Man City result was not only embarrassing for the manager, but for us as well. People were laughing at us after that performance.” And there appears to be no doubt that the Spurs squad are fully behind their manager. “Of course (we are),” Dembele added. Dembele is not alone in that respect, either. His midfield partner Sandro says Villas-Boas is a popular figure among the players. “Everyone likes him,” the Brazilian said. “We have to play for him and I think everyone is doing that on the pitch. Mousa Dembele has hit out at Andre Villas-Boas’s critics and insists the Tottenham squad are fully behind their manager. Villas-Boas had to answer questions about his future last week after Spurs lost 6-0 at Manchester City. A host of pundits, including Gary Neville, Alan Shearer and Jamie Carragher, all criticised Villas-Boas and his team in the wake of the thrashing. “Criticism happens to any coach if you do not win games. He knows we are here and we showed him what are going to do. “I play for him every game. And for the club.” The pressure eased on Villas-Boas slightly on Sunday after Tottenham put in a much-improved performance to claim a 2-2 draw against Manchester United. The team’s passing was more slick, their tempo increased, and some of the players who previously had question marks over their heads turned in good displays. Paulinho and Roberto Soldado put in good shifts while Kyle Walker found the target with a clever free-kick and Sandro scored a stunning 25-yard strike which started outside the right-hand post and drifted back into the top corner past a dumbstruck David De Gea. Although Spurs still could do with a win to pull them closer to the top four, Sandro is relieved that the pain of the 6-0 hammering at the Etihad Stadium has faded somewhat. “We played well, we played together,” said the 24-year-old, who has looked good this term following his recovery from a serious knee injury. “Last week was the worst week I have had in my career. I have to take this out of my mind. “As a team we have to stay together in the bad moments and I think we are doing this. Everyone stayed together, talked and it was good.” Spurs know the next few weeks will be crucial to their chances of clinching the Champions League qualification spot that eluded them last season. The Londoners have tricky fixtures against Liverpool, Southampton and Manchester United over the next month, but they will be big favourites to return to winning ways at Fulham on Wednesday. The Whites, who sacked manager Martin Jol and replaced him with Rene Meulensteen on Sunday, have lost their last six games but Dembele, who spent two years at the west London club before moving to Spurs, expects a tough derby. “It is never easy in the Premier League,” the 26-year-old said. “I like the club very much so I hope they do good. But on Wednesday, I want us to win of course.” Press Association
Owner Stephen Curran said: “Everything has been going well and he seems in good form at home. “He’s back with Tony and we’re looking forward to his first race back after injury. “We’re hoping to get him ready for Punchestown, but Saturday will tell us a lot and we always take it one day at a time with him. “Whatever he does at the weekend he’ll improve on it.” Flemenstar stars in a dozen entries for the two-and-a-half-mile Grade Two event, with Martin also represented by Savello, last seen finishing sixth in the Queen Mother Champion Chase at Cheltenham. Sandra Hughes is also double-handed with Art Of Logistics and Bright New Dawn in contention, while Willie Mullins relies on Felix Yonger. There is a potential British challenger in the shape of Donald McCain’s Desert Cry. The Charles Byrnes-trained Arnaud, Tom Taaffe’s Argocat and Rathlin from Mouse Morris’ yard are also in the mix. Flemenstar will make his long-awaited return in Saturday’s Webster Cup at Navan. A three-time Grade One-winning chaser for trainer Peter Casey, the 10-year-old has been sidelined by injury since making a successful debut for Tony Martin in November 2013. That was Flemenstar’s fourth victory from six starts at Navan and having been nursed back to fitness, he will make his comeback in County Meath this weekend. Press Association
As of Wednesday morning, many Palm Beach County hospital ICUs were also reportedly near capacity.According to the state’s hospital bed census, Bethesda West and Wellington Regional Medical Center both reported they only had two beds available for ICU patients.Gov. Ron Desantis said this week that hospitals are seeing more patients for other issues, and then learning they also have coronavirus. The governor added that is part of the reason the positive numbers are rising.“People didn’t all of the sudden stop having heart attacks,” DeSantis said. “People were not as comfortable seeking medical care then, so we’ve been stressing, and every hospital we’ve talked to is stressing, ‘Hey, we’re open for business.’” As cases of the coronavirus continue to increase throughout South Florida, health officials are growing concerned over hospitalizations and the numbers of intensive care unit beds that are, or are not, available.Last week, the state reached more than 1,800 hospitalizations, marking the highest single-day since the beginning of the pandemic, according to state records.Some area hospitals are now taking steps to increase the amount of available ICU beds.Bethesda East, Bethesda West and Boca Raton Regional Center are rescheduling elective procedures that require overnight stays in order to help free up space for COVID-19 patients.In Broward, Memorial Hospital West in Pembroke Pines reported only two of its 40 adult ICU beds were left Tuesday, according to state records.Meanwhile, Memorial Hospital Miramar reported none available, with all 18 of its ICU beds occupied.Broward Health North in Deerfield Beach reported that it had one of 32 beds available, while Baptist Hospital of Miami reported that six out of 88 beds remained open.Throughout Florida, 56 hospital ICUs have reached capacity, while another 35 hospitals report ICU bed availability of 10 percent or less.In response to the recent outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19), we have suspended visitation for the health and safety of everyone in our care. Visitors are not permitted in the hospital (with limited critical exceptions).

Everyone has heard the commercials proclaiming “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.”While it’s true for most visits to Sin City, the No 8-ranked Wisconsin wrestling team will try to build on their strong performance at the Cliff Keen Invite in Las Vegas this past weekend. The Badgers wrestled well and finished with two wrestlers — Tyler Turner and Craig Henning — in the top five.”All things considered, it was a good performance. We had nine guys compete, four of them were backups and everyone stepped it up,” head coach Barry Davis said. “I was very pleased with the overall effort and the way we competed.”This weekend the Badgers will travel to Cedar Falls, Iowa where they will take on a formidable opponent in Northern Iowa. On the Mats, UNI holds a slim 18-16 advantage in the all-time series against Wisconsin.However, as of late, the Badgers have succeeded against the Panthers, winning the last three meetings in convincing fashion. Currently, Northern Iowa is ranked at No. 20 and has nationally ranked wrestlers at the 141, 157 and 165-pound weight classes.One of the more stimulating matchups of the weekend should be at the 133-pound weight class, where Tom Clum is expected to make his triumphant return to the Badger lineup.After being sidelined with a wrist injury all season the All-American will square off against one of Northern Iowa’s best in Chris Helgeson. Helgeson is currently the active leader in career wins at UNI with 64, and this season he holds a 13-6 record — good enough for best on the team.Players and coaches alike have been waiting for Clum to return, and there’s no doubt he will be put to the test in his debut this weekend.At the 141-pound weight class, UW senior Ed Gutnik will be facing sophomore C.J. Ettelson, who currently leads the Panthers with three pins on the year. Ettelson is 11-4 this season and has a career record of 33-16. He was a national qualifier a year ago after posting a 22-12 record as a redshirt freshman.Gutnik, who has emerged as a star for the Badgers, has just one loss on the year after being defeated by one point against Northern Illinois’s Josh Wooton.”[Northern Iowa has] got a bunch of guys ranked. They’re a talented squad and it should be a good meet,” Gutnik said. “But we always expect to win and it’s no different this weekend.”At the 174-pound class, Wisconsin’s Tyler Turner will be competing after an eventful weekend in Vegas. After losing his first match of the season in the semi-finals, Turner went on to take home third place in tournament after beating the No. 2-ranked wrestler in the country, Arizona State’s Pat Payne.Turner, who is 9-1 on the year, expects a hostile environment in Cedar Falls and will look to weather the storm.”The [crowd’s] going to be with them and the fact that we’re ranked higher doesn’t mean they don’t have a chance,” Turner said. “Anything could happen, and we’re just looking to improve on what we have so far. We’ve just got to forget about the crowd, do the little things and [we’ll] be OK.”Following their road meet against Northern Iowa, Wisconsin will return home and hit the mats for another set of matches against Northern Illinois. Back-to-back meets in different venues won’t be an easy task, but Davis expects his team to be ready.”I don’t anticipate that being a problem — we’ve had the Vegas tournament back-to-back days and then the Rock Haven tournament followed by Penn State,” Davis said. “I was wondering how our young guys would handle it but they responded well in some hostile environments. We’ve been training for these situations all season, and we’ll be ready.”Saturday’s meet will be broadcast live on Iowa local television, while the Badgers’ home meet against Northern Illinois will be available via webcast at Uwbadgers.com.”We’re getting a chance to perform in Iowa and show their fans what this program is all about,” Davis said. “Wisconsin wrestling is on the move, and when we come home, we’re going to get a chance to showcase our talent. These are two must-win situations because we’ve got to keep on the upswing before our schedule gets heavy.”
