GPA hits the high notes

first_imgContainer tonnage was the primary driver of the cargo growth, which expanded by 14.4 percent year-on-year to more than 2.5 million tons (2.27 million tonnes), said GPA executive director Griff Lynch.Lynch said Savannah’s Ocean Terminal also achieved significant growth in February 2017, with a 9.2 percent increase in breakbulk cargo for the month led by linerboard, automotives, iron and steel.”A 38 percent increase in iron and steel is a good leading indicator of future growth in construction, as well as automobile and other manufacturing,” he said.Lynch also stated that GPA will commission a new neo-Panamax ship-to-shore crane at its Garden City Terminal in Savannah this week, in order to serve to the larger vessels calling at the terminal; three more will be brought online in mid-April. A separate, USD45.3 million order will bring four more cranes to the terminal in 2018, bringing the number of cranes available to 30.  GPA executive director, Griff Lynchwww.gaports.comlast_img read more

Then, I see this logo for my favorite Austrian Bundesliga team and I’m wondering how they got permission for the rings logo. It seems to violate all the Olympic rules, but it’s still used and good. I assume they got permission to use them (since the city has hosted the Olympics a couple times), but it struck me as strange that the Olympic rings logo was so prominently featured on a pro team’s logo. Does anybody know why and if any other cities that have hosted have the rings in their pro teams logo?

Posted December 31, 2016 I think Wacker Innsbruck invented the Olympic Rings logo in 1964, when Innsbruck hosted the Winter Games the first time. So it has indeed to do with Innsbruck hosting the Games. 1964 was also the year Wacker Innsbruck played in the first Austrian Division the first time. 315 posts 17,998 Share this post maybe because they’re all white and not in the logo’s colors?

Vessel rescued by Mexican navy cloned Cancun poachers

first_imgIsla Mujeres, Q. R. — Crew members of a vessel that requested assistance from the Mexican navy have found themselves in a fair bit of trouble. The Isla Mujeres cooperative confirmed that it is a cloning of one of its boats, which they say, also confirms that there are many clones dedicated to poaching. Baltazar Gómez Catzín, president of the Por la Justicia Social cooperative acknowledged that in his fishing group they have a boat with that registration and that name, but it is not the same as the vessel that was helped by the navy. A vessel that ran out of gas and began drifting requested rescue assistance from the Mexican navy earlier this week. After the four crew and boat were safely returned to an Isla Mujeres dock, authorities noticed a discrepancy. center_img The vessel, Los Cuatro Hermanos, was found to have a cloned registration and a superimposed cooperative logo. The discovery was made after the crew and boat were towed and officials requested documentation from its captain. Officials noted that Los Cuatro Hermanos had cloned Por la Justicia Social on the boat, a cooperative of Isla Mujeres. The cloned vessel and crew were reportedly from Puerto Juarez. Captain of the cloned Los Curtro Hermanos has been summoned to appear before a Cancun judge to prove boat ownership as well as proof of fishing permits.
