The sea trials are beginning in line with the contract schedule, just 14 months after construction started on the Gowind L’Adroit, an innovative offshore patrol boat designed for maritime safety & security missions.“The start of these first sea trials is a symbolic milestone that testifies to the remarkable teamwork between DCNS, the project’s investors and co-contractors, and the trial crews,” said Gowind OPV programme manager Marc Maynard. “Everybody has brought their knowledge and expertise to the table, and their unflagging commitment has made it possible to consistently meet the programme’s ambitious industrial milestones.”During the sea trials, more than 50 technicians on board the vessel are conducting an intensive test campaign to validate its seakeeping and other nautical qualities. After testing the ship’s fire-fighting, flood control and other safety systems, the onboard team will be running trials with the propulsion system and checking vessel manoeuvrability. Alongside these sea trials, tests will also be conducted on the ship’s navigation systems (log, position, heading), inertial platforms (positioning) and other systems.When the vessel returns to dock, outfitting of the last equipment compartments and painting work will continue. Construction is scheduled for completion by DCNS at the end of 2011.The start of sea trials with the Gowind OPV L’Adroit again demonstrates DCNS’s ability to design and build a highly innovative ship in less than 24 months and in strict compliance with budget commitments.OPV L’Adroit is being built under a DCNS-funded programme and will be made available to the French Navy for three years on completion. The three-year loan period will enable the Navy to qualify the OPV as ‘sea proven’, giving DCNS an exceptionally strong argument when promoting the Gowind family on the international market.The Navy will demonstrate the Gowind’s relevance and operational value for current and emerging missions on the high seas, from area surveillance to anti-piracy, counter-terrorism, fisheries policing, drug interdiction, environmental protection, humanitarian aid, search & rescue and maritime safety & security.OPV L’Adroit has a length of 87 metres, an at-sea endurance of 3 weeks and a range of 8,000 nautical miles. With a top speed of 21 knots, the vessel has a helicopter flight deck and can accommodate UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) operations. It is designed for reduced crewing, with a complement of 30 and space for 30 passengers.The ship features a number of major innovations for navies, commandos and coastguards: 360° panoramic visibility from the bridge, a single integrated mast for 360° radar coverage, covert deployment of fast commando boats in less than 5 minutes and provision for UAVs and USVs (unmanned surface vehicles). The Gowind family also benefits from DCNS’s extensive experience in IT and command information systems. Vessels in the Gowind family can be readily tailored for extended area surveillance and, when working in conjunction with shore-based control centres and other networked ships, for the automatic detection of suspicious behaviour by ships and other craft.[mappress]Source: dcns, July 29, 2011; July 29, 2011 View post tag: L’Adroit
The Duke of Edinburgh visited St Catherine’s college last Friday to officially open the new buildings. On his tour, The Duke met groups of students and staff as well as alumni and those who had contributed to the construction project.On his tour, the Duke arrived, accompanied by the Master of the College, at the bedroom planned for him to visit, which had been cleaned a painted for theoccasion. The door was found to be locked, forcing the company to take a detour to a neighbouring room belonging to Faizal Patel.Patel told Cherwell “My room was messy and it smelt of smoke from a shisha session from the night before. The Duke asked me where I’m from and what I do. He was very friendly and laid back.” He continued, “He then looked at my shisha pipe and asked, ’I hope you’re not involved in this sort of activity, are you?’ I think he thought it was some sort of bong so replied, ’Na, don’t worry, it’s not for weed: it’s shisha, an Arab flavoured smoking tradition.’ One of the Duke’s entourage said, ’Oh yes, I believe they call it hubbly-bubbly?’ to which I answered in the affirmative.“The Duke, then said to the Master, ’So, you allow students to do this sort ofthing?’ and the Master responded with, ’I guess we’ll have to take his word heuses it for what he says he does.’” Patel said of his encounter with royalty, “The Duke was pretty cool. It was a pretty funny situation. My biggest regret is that didn’t offer him a toke of the shisha!”Professor Roger Ainsworth, Master of Catz said, “it was a great pleasure to have our visitor His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh come to open our new buildings.” JCR president, David Craddock, said “The Duke was on good form, and seemed to be thoroughly enjoying himself. He was quick, witty and direct, and appreciated those who responded in the same fashion.ARCHIVE: 6th week MT 2005
The Oxford Union has been criticised by anti-war campaigners after receiving sponsorship from a major arms company.BAE, the UK’s largest defence company, sponsored the Oxford Union’s business debate on Thursday.Beth Smith, Universities Coordinater for the Campaign Against the Arms Trade (CAAT), stated, “It is ironic and shameful that the Oxford Union, supposedly a forum for free and open debate, is to accept sponsorship from BAE Systems. BAE, one of the world’s largest arms companies, has shown itself unwilling to open itself to public knowledge and information on its secretive arms dealing worldwide.”She continued, “By taking sponsorship from BAE, the Oxford Union enables the company to present itself as a respectable and legitimate business despite the fact that it sells weapons almost indiscriminately, including to Saudi Arabia.”On Wednesday, a spokesperson for BAE Systems said, “BAE Systems invests more than £80 million per annum in employee development, work with schools, and skills activity including supporting events such as the Oxford Union debate.”BAE said, “All defence equipment and services exported from the UK are subject to strict export licences granted by the UK Government. BAE Systems has the most stringent anti-corruption and compliance standards across business generally and we are a recognised leader in business conduct.”BAE Systems employs 35,000 people in the UK, and is the UK’s largest employer of engineers. The company is on the FTSE 100, and in 2011 had profits of £1.25 billion.CAAT’s website says, “A notorious recent deal was the sale of 200 Tactica armoured vehicles to Saudi Arabia. These vehicles were used by Saudi troops helping to suppress pro-democracy protests in Bahrain in March 2011.Until recently, BAE Systems was blacklisted by OUSU. However, OUSU President David J Townsend said this is no longer the case, explaining, “To avoid the accretion of old policies which may not reflect the views of current students, any policy passed by common room presidents and other representatives in the Council of the Student Union lapses three years after its adoption.”Some students have criticised the Union’s choice of sponsor. Ellen Gibson, founder of Oxford’s branch of the charity People and Planet, said, “BAE Systems is, in my opinion, one of the most morally disgraceful companies in the world. The arms trade is a dirty business which students of Oxford and members of the Union like myself wish to distance themselves from.”Yet Catrin Davies, a History and Politics student at St Hilda’s, said, “I don’t see why it’s practically relevant…As far as I’m aware, Union sponsors don’t exercise any particular influence over Union policy.”The Union was unavailable for comment.

With President-elect Donald Trump set to take office tomorrow, a growing number of American citizens are truly troubled by what they’ve witnessed from this administration. Anyone with a voice is left with no choice but to use it, and one of those people is Raja Kassis, a touring member of the Antibalas band and leader of Raja Kassis’ Humanbeing and Pirate’s Choice. Today, Kassis has released the song “Don’t Leave (Doumala Baayi)” through Ropeadope Records, celebrating the legacy of immigrants in America.The track was originally recorded for an album in 2014, but ultimately shelved since it was a cover of legendary Senegalese artist N’dongo Lo. They have played it live many times, and it’s always a fan favorite. “Because it was a favorite to play in the late night traditional Senegalese parties which we did in Harlem for years, we just kind of did it for fun because we loved playing it and audiences ate it up.” Kassis only decided to release the track years later, but first some touch ups needed to be done.The rhythm section on the track is true to its Senegalese roots, with a tight section composed of Mahanta Faye (lemzo Diamano) on drumset, Mor Coumba Gueye (grandson of Doudou N’diaye Rose) and Magatte Fall (Angelique Kidjo) on Sabar percussions, Arone N’diaye (who actually toured with N’dongo Lo) on marimba keyboards, Patrice Blanchard on bass and Kassis on guitar. After revisiting the track, Kassis decided to enlist a powerful horn section to bring it to life, and called on Sylvester Uzoma Onyejiaka II (Ghost Note) on baritone sax, Nadav Nirenberg (Ikebe Shakedown) on trombone, Mike Buckley (Sharon Jones/Lee Fields) on tenor sax, Jason Colby (Lee Fields and the Expressions) on trumpet and Sam Hoyt (Jorge Ben) on trumpet.The result is a lively recording that merges Kassis’ two main influences of New Orleans and Senegal. Though the song is an instrumental, this merger is symbolic of the true spirit of America and its immigrant legacy, celebrating the old and welcoming the new. Says Kassis, “I would like to say that we in fact DON’T want you to leave despite what you may hear people saying for political gain. The promise of this country has always been that no matter where you’re from, you belong, as at some point, unless you’re Native American, we are all immigrants as well. Above all else, it is the kaleidoscope of culture that is in fact the very essence of this great American experiment. That will always be something worth fighting for.”You can listen to Kassis’ “Don’t Leave (Doumala Baayi),” streaming below.<a href=”http://rajakassis.bandcamp.com/track/dont-leave-doumala-baayi-single”>Don’t Leave (Doumala Baayi) – Single by Raja Kassis</a>In keeping up with this spirit, Antibalas will perform an Anti-ball concert in Washington DC on January 21st, with proceeds going to Planned Parenthood. More details can be found here. You can also find Kassis’ debut album and more on his Bandcamp page.
Dr. Liam Lanigan, an Irish Research Council postdoctoral research fellow from University College Cork, spoke Friday about Irish novelist George Moore and his relation to Irish urban modernism in the late 19th and early 20th Century.Lanigan’s lecture, sponsored by the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies, focused on Moore’s critique of Irish society in his novels.Lanigan said Moore, in his naturalistic treatment of Dublin, developed an Irish mode of modernism.“Moore’s deployment of the idea of suburbanization at the end of [his novel] A Drama in Muslin . . . attempts to diagnose the problems facing society and facing the city,” Lanigan said. “He seems imaginatively incapable of imposing a solution within the space of Dublin.“There’s this sort of discontinuity between Dublin as a contained space and he ends up having to project a set of solutions elsewhere.”Lanigan said Moore’s dilemma was common among Irish writers of his time, as were themes of Irish nationalism and social decline. In his novel “Confessions of a Young Man,” Moore exposes the Francophile within himself and explores his own hostile feelings toward Ireland, Lanigan said.“It is indicative of his tendency to measure Ireland against France and Dublin against Paris, always to Ireland’s detriment,” Lanigan said. “Paris is a space in which you can get rid of all the inherited traits of language and nationality in contrast with Dublin.”Moore was interested in the aestheticism of Parisian culture, Lanigan said. He saw Paris as a place where naturalism and impressionism could flourish, whereas Dublin remained stagnant in the arts.“Dublin is revealed as a failed space, betraying a very long process of social decline,” Lanigan said.According to Lanigan, Moore’s aim was to improve Irish society through modernization. He invoked the peasantry in his work to call attention to the social and economic disparities within Dublin.“He shows the picture of a society incapable of change,” Lanigan said. “A static vision in which an alternative does not appear possible, and yet in which the end of the current system is inevitable.”Moore’s writings revealed a society marked by fundamental injustice, Lanigan said, and showed how social stagnation was occurring not only in the heart of the slums but in the more affluent suburbs as well.Lanigan said Moore provided “a street-level view of poor urban experience” by highlighting the proximity of poverty and wealth in Dublin, while also applying to the city a sense of meaning and modernity.Tags: Irish Urban Modernism

The EPA is moving forward with modifications to part of the underwater cap at the Pine Street Canal Superfund Site in Burlington, Vermont. The portion of the cap that was installed several years ago will be repaired and improved. In 2006, EPA performed a Five Year Review of work previously performed at the Burlington site and found that some portions of the cap were leaking oil and coal tar. The EPA and the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation will oversee the cap modification work.The 2003 2004 cleanup of the Pine Street Canal has largely been effective in preventing contamination from migrating into the canal, but oily sheens and globules of coal tar have been observed periodically in a 450 foot-long portion of the canal since 2005. Absorbent booms have been placed across the canal as an interim measure to prevent the contamination from entering Lake Champlain.EPA s planned modification is officially recorded in an Explanation of Significant Differences (ESD) document. A manufactured gas plant operated at the Pine Street Canal site from 1895 to 1966. Operations at the plant included disposal of wastes from the gasification process, including coal tars. Manufactured gas wastes were placed in and migrated to the nearby canal, which had been built in the mid-1800 s to serve lumber yards in the area.A remedy to remove coal tar, excavate contaminated sediments, and place those into a disposal facility to be constructed on site, was proposed by EPA in 1992. Six months later, due to considerable community opposition that proposal was withdrawn. From 1994-1998, additional studies were conducted by companies responsible for the contamination with oversight by the EPA, the Vermont Dept. of Environmental Conservation (VT DEC) and the Pine Street Barge Canal Coordinating Council, a citizen s advisory group. In 1998, the citizen s council recommended constructing a cap over contaminated sediments in the canal, and nearby wetlands, in addition to restoring the wetlands so that ecological risks would be addressed. EPA adopted that recommendation in 1998, and the cap currently in place was completed in 2004.The cap modification will address an ongoing migration of oil and coal tar (referred to as a non-aqueous phase liquid, or NAPL). In areas where the NAPL is seeping out, the cap will be partially replaced and improved with a new cap system that will capture NAPL before it releases into the canal. The NAPL that accumulates will be removed periodically and shipped off site for treatment or disposal at an approved facility. The cap modification work will be undertaken by a group of the potentially responsible parties, who agreed to clean up the site in 2000.In accordance with past public involvement in the remedy selection for the Pine Street Canal site, the EPA issued the ESD in draft form for public comment and review.
