(Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)Louisville has released a number of interesting helmet designs over the last few years, but perhaps no lid was better received than the red-on-black chrome version that debuted in 2013. Since it’s the offseason (and we have to pass the time in some way), we figured we’d show you a custom helmet recently made by the guys over at JVince Custom Lids. It’s the same design, but it instead features a black cherry base. Needless to say, it’s clean.

Video: Laquon Treadwell Is Healthy Enough To Do Backflips On A Trampoline

first_imgLaquon Treadwell is upside down as he performs a flip on a trampoline.Laquon TreadwellOle Miss wide receiver Laquon Treadwell suffered a gruesome broken leg late in the 2014 season, but has since made a remarkable recovery. He was able to join his teammates for spring practice, and posted an Instagram video this afternoon of himself doing backflips on a trampoline.Yes, you read that correctly. Treadwell’s leg looks plenty healthy in these two clips, but we’re thinking Rebels’ head coach Hugh Freeze’s heart will skip a beat or two when he sees them, if he hasn’t already.

Support for Social Safety Net

first_imgThe Government has received an additional US$140-million World Bank loan support that will further bolster three key economic safeguards for Jamaica.The provision will enable the Administration to boost the country’s resilience against natural-disaster risks, support human-capital development and strengthen the social safety net for the society’s most vulnerable.A formal agreement was reached on Tuesday (April 30), following discussions led by Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness; Minister of Finance and the Public Service, Dr. the Hon. Nigel Clarke, and the World Bank Group delegation headed by newly appointed Vice President for Latin America and the Caribbean, Axel van Trostenburg.The meeting was held at the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM), following which the announcement was made during a media briefing.Mr. Holness underscored the importance of the focus areas, noting that the Administration’s sound fiscal management policies must incorporate the likelihood of all possible risks, particularly those that are weather-related.He said data indicate that Jamaica experienced an estimated 26 natural disasters between 1993 and 2003, resulting in economic losses totalling J$2.2 billion, which wiped out about 1.5 per cent of the gross domestic product (GDP).Mr. Holness said the Government, mindful of this and other climate change developments that pose potential risks to Jamaica, has been proactive in taking steps to develop financial instruments, in tandem with the World Bank and other international development partners, to provide safeguards.These, he indicated, could include catastrophe bonds and certain insurance products, adding that the latest World Bank provision “will further help us to be prepared for these eventualities”.Meanwhile, Mr. Holness said in building resilience and protecting the country’s economic gains, “we must never forget that there is still a high level of poverty in Jamaica”.“So a part of our partnership with the World Bank is to figure out how we can improve the delivery systems… not just for social safety net services but for general public services,” he indicated.The Prime Minister said the country will be advised of how this will be undertaken, “so that we can, actually, in a very targeted way, drive benefits to those who need them”.In relation to human capital development, Mr. Holness argued that part of the thrust to attain higher levels of sustainable growth and eradicate poverty, “is improving the knowledge and information that people have”.“What you want to be able to do is take that knowledge and transform it into human capital. That has to come through your education system, your training systems, and other mechanisms that translate knowledge into skills and attitudes,” he added.In his remarks, Mr. Van Trostenburg, who was making his first visit to Jamaica in his new capacity, described climate change and resilience to the associated risks as “very difficult areas” for many countries globally, noting that there is major work to be done in effectively addressing these.Regarding human capital, the World Bank Vice President said this is the “most precious resource” that any country possesses.“The challenge is how do we actually nurture, develop and translate it, ultimately, into jobs and into prosperity. We see this as a core mission of the World Bank, and we are quite excited to work with Jamaica on this long-term agenda,” he added.For his part, Dr. Clarke noted that the World Bank has been an “excellent partner” of Jamaica over the past 55 years, which “during the course of that time, has contributed to many signal achievements”.“We look forward to working with you for decades to come,” the Minister said.last_img read more

Bourbon Partners Up with Bureau Veritas on Automation

first_imgzoom French offshore services company Bourbon has inked a partnership deal with Bureau Veritas on development and deployment of automation technology.The company said that the endeavor would see the development of real-time monitoring fleet applications and digital technologies while putting a major focus on mitigating cyber risks.The partnership plans to deliver advanced automation of dynamic positioning systems in order to improve DP operational safety through real-time advisory tools for bridge operators and remote support for onshore teams.In addition, Bourbon believes the technology would result in a reduction of manning requirements and cutting of fuel and maintenance costs.In partnership with Kongsberg Maritime, Bourbon has implemented a pilot project on the Bourbon Explorer 508 operating in Trinidad waters.As informed, it collects data from the DP system and drives the development of novel decision-making and verification applications for both offshore crew and onshore support teams.In order to curb potential cyber security threats, Bureau Veritas and APSYS, an Airbus company specialized in Product Security, are working on identifying and mitigating risks linked to data collection and communication between BOURBON’s vessels and onshore infrastructure. Based on this risk assessment, Bureau Veritas is able to issue cyber security certification on products and class notations for ships meeting global industry security standards.“We have decided to innovate with Bureau Veritas in the way we operate vessels in order to bring a response to this new cycle focused on operational excellence at optimum cost. Streamlining work organization onboard vessels, this project will have a significant positive impact on our operations,”  Gaël Bodénès, CEO of BOURBON Corporation, said.last_img read more

Norway sees boom in electric cars fueled by the government

first_imgOSLO — A silent revolution has transformed driving in Norway.Eerily quiet vehicles are ubiquitous on the fjord-side roads and mountain passes of this wealthy European nation of 5.3 million. Some 30 per cent of all new cars sport plug-in cables rather than gasoline tanks, compared with 2 per cent across Europe overall and 1-2 per cent in the U.S.As countries around the world — including China, the world’s biggest auto market — try to encourage more people to buy electric cars to fight climate change, Norway’s success has one key driver: the government. It offered big subsidies and perks that it is now due to phase out, but only so long as electric cars remain attractive to buy compared with traditional ones.“It should always be cheaper to have a zero emissions car than a regular car,” says Climate and Environment Minister Ola Elvestuen, who helped push through a commitment to have only sell zero-emissions cars sold in Norway by 2025. The plan supports Norway’s CO2 reduction targets under the 2015 Paris climate accord, which nations last agreed rigorous rules for to ensure emissions goals are met.To help sales, the Norwegian government waived hefty vehicle import duties and registration and sales taxes for buyers of electric cars. Owners don’t have to pay road tolls, and get free use of ferries and bus lanes in congested city centres.These perks are being phased out in 2021, though any road tolls and fees would be limited to half of what gasoline car owners must pay. Gradually, subsidies for electric cars will be replaced by higher taxes on traditional cars.Registration tax on new cars is paid on a sliding scale with a premium for the amount of emissions produced. Elvestuen pledges that the incentives for electric vehicles will be adjusted in such a way that it does not scupper the 2025 target.“What is important is that our aim is not just to give incentives,” he says. “It is that we are taxing emissions from regular cars.”Using taxes to encourage consumers to shift to cleaner energy can be tricky for a government — protests erupted in France this autumn over a fuel tax that hurt the livelihood of poorer families, especially in rural areas where driving is often the only means of transportation.In this sense, Norway is an outlier. The country is very wealthy after exporting for decades the kind of fossil fuels the world is trying to wean itself off of. Incomes are higher than the rest of Europe, as are prices.Some 36 per cent of all new cars sold are SUVs, which provide safety in the country’s tough winters. Tesla’s SUV, the Model X – the motor of choice for well-to-do environmentally-minded Norwegians – costs around 900,000 Norwegian kronor ($106,000).“Buying a Tesla model X is not much more expensive than buying a standard premium Volvo because gasoline cars are taxed heavily. That is also the reason Teslas sell well,” says Christina Bu, General Secretary of the Norwegian Electric Vehicle Association.The premium gas-powered Volvo XC90 SUV, for example, starts at 919,000 kroner ($107,100) in Norway compared with $47,700 in the U.S.To date, with its longer battery life, Tesla has dominated the upmarket family car space for electric vehicles, but more premium marques are entering the market, like the Audi Quattro e-tron. Demand is still outstripping supply, with Norwegians having to wait up to a year to get their hands on the steering wheels of their new electric vehicles.Norway has pledged to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases by 40 per cent by 2030, compared with 1990 levels. The country has work to do: by 2017, emissions were up 3 per cent compared to the 1990 baseline. Cutting emissions from road transport will allow Norway to reduce the amount it has to spend buying up emissions certificates from other European countries to meet its target. The savings are likely to run into billions, potentially balancing out the cost of subsidizing electric cars.Norway is looking to China for help in developing the market.China has invested heavily in electric vehicles as it looks to meet its own Paris climate accord commitments, to clean up its choking cities and to get in early in a growing area of manufacturing. In October, 6 per cent of new cars were electric, according to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, up almost 50 per cent from a year earlier. The market has huge growth potential, experts say, and like Norway, the market boom has relied on government incentives.The hope in Norway is that the sheer size of China’s market will encourage the industry to develop the technology more quickly — improving battery life, for example — and force down prices.Experts say the electric vehicle market needs to develop more for sales to keep growing.Battery life on smaller vehicles is slim and the resale market is untested. Fast battery charging points are slow compared with gasoline pumps, and on Norway’s often empty mountain roads, these points are uneconomical despite government subsidies for the private companies that set them up.Even in city centres, construction of such points has not kept pace with sales. At one station in Oslo, a Tesla driver cracks open his laptop while his car charges. Another, Ida Vihovde, drums her fingers as she waits for a charging station to free up.“If the government put up more of these it would be OK,” she says beside her electric VW Golf. “Right now there are no more chargers so I have to sit and wait.”___Frank Jordans in Berlin contributed to this report.Mark Lewis, The Associated Presslast_img read more
