Field bids out of the park

first_img City officials have met with the lowest bidder and the project architect to go over options for reducing the cost. After adjustments to the project, the city will put it back out for new bids in a few weeks. Eventually, the city wants to have a complex of 13 ballfields, permanent concession stands, restroom buildings, lighting and a batting cage. The baseball complex is a major component of the transformation of the 70-acre former fairgrounds at Avenue I and Division Street into a multi-use area. That effort includes the development of the Lancaster University Center in the former Challenger Hall exhibit building, the establishment of the Antelope Valley Boys and Girls Club in the former watch-and-wager building, and housing and commercial developments. The complex will not only accommodate local sports programs, but also will be available for tournaments much in the same way the city uses its soccer and softball fields to attract tournaments and sports tourism dollars. The city will receive $250,000 from the federal government for the fields. At the request of Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, R-Santa Clarita, funding for the complex was included in the Transportation, Treasury, Housing and Urban Development, Judiciary and District of Columbia Appropriations Act. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card LANCASTER – City officials will wait for another pitch after construction companies’ bids to build baseball fields at the former fairgrounds came in much higher than the $5.8 million estimate. Lancaster officials had hoped to award a contract this month for the construction of 10 ballfields for a new baseball complex, but the three bids ranged from $12.2 million to $13.2 million. The higher prices are the result of the California building boom that is keeping construction companies busy and raising costs across the state, officials said. “We might reduce the scope of the project,” said Lyle Norton, the city’s director of parks, recreation and arts. “We might leave four or five fields out.” center_img Jim Skeen, (661) 267-5743 [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Donegal fish processor fined €45,000 for tampering with weighing scales

first_imgA Donegal fish processing plant and a company director have been fined €45,000 in total for tampering with weighing scales used to measure incoming fish catches.This follows a joint investigation carried out by NSAI (National Standards Authority of Ireland) and the Sea Fisheries Protection Agency (SFPA). Norfish Ltd, based in Killybegs, and director Tony Byrne, were handed down the sentence today at Donegal Circuit Court.Mr. Byrne of Roshin Rd in Killybegs was given a six-month suspended prison sentence and ordered to pay €10,000 to a local hospice in Killybegs, and a further €10,000 to the Donegal Branch of the RNLI. Norfish Ltd was given three months to pay a €25,000 fine.The inspection carried out by NSAI’s Legal Metrology division found that an electrical switch had been fitted to the company’s flow scales used to weigh incoming fish catches. This switch could be used to turn off the scales, allowing the fish to pass over without being weighed. Tampering with measuring instruments used in trade and rendering them inaccurate as a result is an offence under the Legal Metrology Act 1996.Welcoming today’s sentencing at Donegal Circuit Court, NSAI’s Head of Legal Metrology, Paul Turner, said it is important to encourage high measurement compliance in trading transactions to support a fair and competitive environment for businesses and protect consumers.“Today’s outcome recognises the seriousness of the offence. We take non-compliance in any sector, whether it’s the fisheries sector or any other sector covered under our legislation, very seriously,” said Turner.“We will continue to be very vigilant in this sector and if we find any further non-compliance in this area, we will use the full powers of the legislation available to us to deal effectively with it,” he added.NSAI was first alerted to this case in December 2013 by the Sea Fisheries Protection Agency (SFPA).The fisheries regulator had made an unannounced inspection, during which they uncovered non-compliance at the plant. During that inspection, the SFPA noticed that fish were being carried along a conveyor belt and over the flow scales, but were not being weighed. The Sea Fisheries Protection Agency withdrew Norfish Ltd’s permit to weigh on site at this time. Legal Metrology conducted an inspection under Metrology Legislation on the 4th of December, 2013.Commenting on the verdict, Susan Steele, Chair, SFPA said it is an important outcome for the fishing industry.“Breaches such as these threaten the continuation of in-factory weighing for the entire industry, which is permitted under a special exemption negotiated with the SFPA. This facility can continue only while the accuracy and correct use of those weighing systems is guaranteed,” said Steele.“Mis-weighing distorts the declaration of catches and undermines the accuracy of data on stocks used by scientists to determine quota and could affect the long term sustainability of our valuable fisheries and the coastal communities that rely on them,” she added.The inspection carried out by Legal Metrology on the 4th of December resulted in the flow scales being withdrawn from use and Norfish Ltd was issued with a notice to rectify the detected non-compliance.“Measurement is everywhere throughout the economy and it is a system built on trust,” said NSAI Chief Executive, Geraldine Larkin.“Nobody wants to have to dispute every quantity they purchase. There has to be a high level of trust and ensuring the accuracy of all measuring instruments used in trade is an important part of that system,” she added.NSAI’s Legal Metrology division inspected over 14,200 instruments last year. The sectors covered by this public good service include food production, fuel delivery, export enterprises, taxis and local retailers. NSAI’s work in this area is complimented by a network of authorised verifiers, which supports business needs for a professional verification service arising because of new installations, wear and tear, repairs and maintenance requirements over the measuring instruments’ lifetime. The impact of the inspection regime is evidenced by the high compliance rates achieved following the first inspection.Donegal fish processor fined €45,000 for tampering with weighing scales was last modified: March 29th, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Citlink boss resigns over ‘drunk’ pilot allegations

first_imgThe head of Garuda Indonesia low-cost subsidiary Citilink has tendered his resignation over allegations a pilot on one of the budget carrier’s flights showed up to work under the influence of alcohol.Citilink chief executive Albert Burhan and the carrier’s operations director tendered their resignations on Friday, although their departure still has to be approved by the parent company.Garuda chief executive Arif Wibowo told Nikkei Asian Review he believed the resignation request was “an elegant way of taking responsibility’’ for the incident, which has generated international headlines.”But Citilink is a subsidiary of Garuda Indonesia, a publicly listed company, so the decision will require approval from our shareholders, including the government,’’ he said. “I hope the case will be concluded in the next one-two weeks.”The allegedly drunk pilot was suspended and subsequently fired after passengers claimed he was incoherent during an announcement prior to take-off on the flight from Surabaya, in East Java, to the Indonesian capital of Jakarta.The flight was delayed for an hour and passengers were taken off the aircraft while a new captain was found.  A handful opted not to take the flight.The pilot reportedly underwent tests at a Surabaya medical clinic and later in Jakarta and  Indonesia media organisations said they expected results next week.However, the Jakarta Globe reported that the airline said initially there was no indication of substance abuse or intoxication. The online newspaper said Citlink’s stance changed after an airport security video was leaked showing the pilot was unsteady and wobbling as he went through a security checkpoint. According to the airline’s website, Citilink provides more than 230 daily flights to 27 destinations, mostly within Indonesia, using aircraft A320 aircraft.  It has been a success story for Garuda in Indonesia’s competitive low-cost market since it was spun off under its own air operator’s certificate in 2012. The Globe said a 2.3 per cent fall in Garuda’s end-of-year share price was likely a result of the controversy..last_img read more

Tablets Will Surge Beyond Projections, IDC Says

first_imgRole of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology dan rowinski Yet if IDC’s predictions prove out, Microsoft might be in trouble.The research firm is calling for Windows-based tablets to have a 10.3% market share in 2016. That includes Windows RT, Windows 8 and Windows 7 tablets (what little there are). When Microsoft started shipping its newest Windows 8 slates, it was probably thinking it would control more than a tenth of the market come 2016.Yet, Windows 8 and RT sales have been poor through the first month or so of availability and Microsoft has reportedly cut its own tablet shipments. And the rise of the tablet will come at the expense of the traditional e-reader along with cutting into the sale of PCs. In the coming years, many people will be using their tablets as the primary way to access the Internet, communicate, play games and work. “Tablets continue to captivate consumers, and as the market shifts toward smaller, more mobile screen sizes and lower prices points, we expect demand to accelerate in the fourth quarter and beyond,” Mainelli said.  Tags:#Android#Apple#iPad#tablets Tablets are the hot gifts this year. If you are in the market for a new slate, options abound and people are rushing to buy. The popularity of the tablet sector is so big right now that research firm International Data Corp. has increased its tablet forecast for the rest of 2012 by nearly 5 million shipments.That might not seem like a lot, but if you consider we are already a week into December, IDC’s tablet projection is significant.The recalculation from IDC comes as tablet sales surge on the strength of Apple’s new iPad Mini along with a plethora of strong Android competitors and the release of Windows 8. IDC is now calling for a year-end total of 122.3 million tablet shipments, up from its earlier prediction of 117.1 million. “Android tablets are gaining traction in the market thanks to solid products from Google, Amazon, Samsung and others. And Apple’s November iPad mini launch, along with its surprise refresh of the full-sized iPad, positions the company well for a strong holiday season,” said IDC’s research director for tablet Tom Mainelli in a press release. IDC has also increased its tablet projection for the years to come. For 2013, the research firm forecasts 172.4 million shipments (up from 165.9 million). For 2016, IDC predicts 282.7 million units (up from 261.4 million). What IDC is saying is that pretty soon everybody you know is going to have a tablet of some sort. Your most gadget-enthused friends will likely have a couple. IDC predicts that iPad rule tablets at least through 2016, with a 49.7% market share. That means that Apple would ship nearly 140.5 million iPads in 2016, more than double what it is likely to ship in 2012. Android is expected to lose more ground to Apple in 2016, mostly due to increased popularity of Windows tablets, which will eat somewhat into Android sales.  Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Related Posts last_img read more

Cavs-Warriors Part III joins past championship trilogies

first_imgLATEST STORIES BSP survey: PH banks see bright horizon amid dark global recession clouds New York Yankees vs. New York Giants 1921-23In his second season in New York, Babe Ruth led the Yankees to their first World Series berth in 1921 against the Giants. The entire series was played at the Polo Grounds, home to both teams that season. The Giants won the Series 5-3 in the final best-of-nine matchup as a banged-up Ruth got just one plate appearance during the final three games, all won by the Giants.John McGraw’s Giants won the rematch the following year 4-0 with one tie before Ruth gave the Yankees their first title the following year to cap the first season at Yankee Stadium. Ruth had three homers in the Series, including one in the decisive sixth game. The big star for the Giants that year was future Yankees manager Casey Stengel, who hit an inside-the-park homer in the ninth inning to win Game 1 and drove in the only run in Game 3 with another homer.Cleveland Browns vs. Detroit Lions (1952-54)These teams that have spent much of the post-merger days near the bottom of the standings were the cream of the crop in the 1950s led by star quarterback Graham and innovative coach Paul Brown in Cleveland and Lions Hall of Fame passer Layne and running back Doak Walker.In the first championship meeting in 1952, Layne and Walker ran for TDs to give the Lions a 17-7 win and their first championship since 1935.ADVERTISEMENT Lacson: SEA Games fund put in foundation like ‘Napoles case’ BREAKING: Cop killed, 11 hurt in Misamis Oriental grenade blast Cayetano dares Lacson, Drilon to take lie-detector test: Wala akong kinita sa SEA Games Detroit became the league’s third repeat winner in the championship game the following season when Layne threw a 33-yard TD pass to Jim Doran with just over 2 minutes remaining for a 17-16 victory.The Browns came out on top the following year, ending a run of three straight title game losses (they also lost to the Rams in 1951). The Lions won the regular-season finale the week before the title game and scored first on a field goal by Walker.But it was all Browns after that with Graham throwing three TD passes and running for three more in a 56-10 win.Montreal Canadiens vs. Detroit Red Wings (1954-56)The first matchup of this trilogy started with one of the most memorable in 1954. In a series full of megastars like Howe, Terry Sawchuk, Ted Lindsay and Red Kelly in Detroit and Richard, Jean Beliveau, Doug Harvey and Boom Boom Geoffrion in Montreal, it was an unsung player who became the hero.In overtime in Game 7, Red Wings forward Tony Leswick got credit for the series-clinching goal when his innocent looking shot from the point was deflected by Harvey past Gerry McNeil for a 2-1 win 4:29 into OT. There hasn’t been a Game 7 overtime since in the Final.The Red Wings won the rematch in an all home team seven-game series the following year. Howe set a record with 12 points in the round and Lindsay scored four goals in a Game 2 win. Richard missed the series because of a suspension for slashing Boston’s Hal Laycoe in the head and punching linesman Cliff Thompson. Detroit didn’t win another Stanley Cup for 41 years.With Richard back, the Canadiens won the following year in five games with the Rocket getting the game-winning goal in the clincher.
