Luckily, another pleasure craft was nearby and plucked them from the water.“The crew in Cape Inscription recognised the vessel fire, promptly alerted harbour authorities, and then quickly launched a correctly prepared and outfitted team to render assistance as required,” Lieutenant Jackman said.“However, despite our aid party arriving on the scene shortly after noticing the smoke, the vessel was completely engulfed in raging flames. There was simply nothing that could be done for her.”Lieutenant Jackman said continuous training ensured Navy crews were ready to respond to any situation at sea.Cape Inscription was conducting a training activity known as a work up when the emergency occurred. Work ups are designed to train a platform and her crew to meet a baseline level of knowledge and skills.Achievement of unit or mission readiness demonstrates to Navy that the boat and crew meet those baseline elements and are capable of safely undertaking exercises and other peacetime tasks.It is the second time in seven days that a Royal Australian Navy patrol boat has been involved in a maritime rescue, highlighting one of the important roles navy patrol boats play in Australian waters.It was the second recent incident when Royal Australian Navy crewed Cape-class patrol boats have lent assistance to mariners in distress.ADV Cape Fourcroy recently rescued nine Papua New Guinea fishermen adrift without food or fuel in the Torres Strait.

Trail Mix – Ed Romanoff

first_imgAny fan of John Prine is a friend of mine.That means, then, that Ed Romanoff and I could be good buddies. I count Prine as my all time favorite songwriter. Years ago, Prine’s work inspired Romanoff to learn to play the guitar, and it was Prine’s depressingly romantic “Hello In There” that he counts as the first song he mastered.A listening party might be in the offing.This month, the award winning Romanoff is releasing his second record, The Orphan King, as the follow up to his critically lauded 2012 eponymous debut.Romanoff’s work reminds me a lot of Prine’s; somber and contemplative, rich with insight and introspection. The new record features a bevy of guests, including famed guitarist Larry Campbell, who has worked with Bob Dylan and The Band, and was produced by Simone Felice.I recently caught up with Romanoff to chat about the new record, odd jobs, and our shared love of the singing mailman.BRO – You are celebrating the release of your second record. Which one was the bigger challenge? This one or the first one?ER – I think this one was a little more fun because I’d done it once before. The first record was something I never thought I’d live to see, so that seemed like a pretty tall mountain to climb. That said, I really wanted to top what we’d done and that challenge was always at the front of my mind for this one.BRO – Your working life outside of music has included some interesting trades. What job might our readers be most surprised to hear that you have done?ER – Baking Teflon onto pots in a factory in New Haven, staking hundreds of toilet bowls in Winston-Salem, or jackhammering a shuffleboard court on a ranch in Wyoming. Which do you think is weirdest?BRO – I am a longtime fan of Simone Felice’s work. How did he influence the crafting of this record?ER – Oh, man. Simone is a sly genius. He created a dark and magical space to record everything live and he was very open to all ideas. He was particularly great at capturing our vocal takes, and also the song doctoring. Plus, he knew Larry Campbell. Everything got better with his help.BRO – We are featuring “Less Broken Now” on this month’s Trail Mix. What’s the story behind the song?ER – Having gone through a pretty debilitating depression after learning my father wasn’t my father, through a DNA test, in 2010, I also got dinged in a few relationships. After that, I finally rediscovered my footing and met somebody new. So, it kind of sums up leaving a sad chapter behind and moving forward with a little bit of grace.BRO – I read that it was a John Prine record that inspired you to learn the guitar. If you could meet a character from one of his songs, which one would it be?ER – Just one? That’s tough. Either Sabu, the elephant boy, or the wise poet in “Bruised Orange (Chain of Sorrow), who knows how brutal the world can be, but even so, reminds us that anger is a useless prison.For the record, I think that stacking toilet bowls is the weirdest of those jobs listed above. Thankfully, it’s a guitar in Ed’s hands now, and not potties, and you can catch him at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC next weekend.For more information on Ed Romanoff, his touring schedule, or how you can get a copy of his new record, check out his website.And be sure to listen to “Less Broken Now,” along with new tracks from Wild Child, Lowpines, and Jim White on this month’s Trail Mix.last_img read more

Papuk Nature Park sets a new record: more than 25.000 visitors to Jankovac this year

first_imgJudging by the number of visitors who decided to visit the Papuk Nature Park this year, then we can say that Papuk has become perhaps the most desirable continental destination. With just over 7000 visitors, 2017 was the best year so far, but in just the first 8 months of 2018, the Papuk Nature Park, or Jankovac Park-Forest, was visited by more than 25 visitors.Yesterday, in the morning, this pearl of Slavonia was visited for the first time by Mrs. Nisveta Vignjević from Rijeka, accompanied by her husband, and thus became the 25.000th visitor this year. “The Count fled from Vienna, and we from Rijeka – civilization always retreats because the heart recognizes peace, beauty, simplicity, harmony of nature. Thanks for making it possible for us. “Said Nisveta Vignjević, who did not hide her delight at what she saw.”I am especially pleased with the growth of domestic and foreign nature lovers.  We are extremely pleased with this figure, which is an indication that protected areas can significantly contribute to the development of tourism and the local communities in which they are located. We believe that this growth trend will continue. The park has made multimillion-dollar investments in the past period, especially in the Jankovac Forest Park. This positive trend will continue in the next two years, where tens of millions of kunas will be raised  invest in the wider area in the development of tourist infrastructure, which seeks to provide an offer that balances the interest of visitors and nature protection, which we must preserve for all future generations. ” pointed out the director of the Papuk Nature Park Alen JurenacThis is a confirmation that even continental destinations that are not in the center of media attention can have a very good attendance if the contents are interesting to visitors. We can conclude how the number of visitors to the Park is growing from year to year, and the reconstruction of the road from Slatinski Drenovac will further facilitate access to Jankovac and that an even larger number of people will decide to enjoy the beauties of the Park, conclude PP Papuk.last_img read more

Krka National Park souvenir shop opened in Knin

first_imgThe souvenir shop at the Knin Fortress is open from 9 am to 19 pm. There is also a corner for children, to entertain while adults choose something from the diverse offer of traditional, contemporary, useful, artistic and food souvenirs. Before reaching the souvenir shops, these items are selected according to the criteria of quality and recognizability, but also the degree of connection with cultural, historical and natural heritage, originality and ecological acceptability. The history of Krka, with which the town of Knin is connected, is older than humanity. Krka and Krčić were one river in the geological past. The main and inexhaustible source of the river Krka is located three and a half kilometers northeast of Knin, on the edge of Kninsko polje, at the foot of a twenty-two meter high cliff. It is Topoljski slap (Veliki buk or Krčića slap). Sixteen kilometers from the spring, and nine from Knin, is the first waterfall on the river Krka, Bilušića buk. A new souvenir shop of the Krka National Park has been opened in the area of ​​the famous Knin Fortress, so that visitors who visit the Park from the north, but also Knin residents and their guests, can find some of the indigenous souvenirs that speak of the tradition and history of the place. The Krka National Park and the area in which it is located, with its people and customs, are one entity, created by the interaction of man and the river over centuries of history. That is why today, when talking about the activities of the Krka National Park, one cannot fail to mention local units, especially since the cities and municipalities along the border of the Park, in addition to being proud of it, cooperate with its management on numerous projects of common interest.
