The first Way of the Cross under the sea in the World was officially opened in Trogir

first_imgOn Sunday, August 27, the first Way of the Cross under the sea in the world was officially opened in Jelinak Bay in Trogir.Through this unique project, it is planned to set up the entire Way of the Cross, all 14 stations of the cross, and under the sea will be laid 50 sculptures representing the Way of the Cross, and the sculptures will be life-size. Currently, only the first station has been set up, and the completion of the entire project is planned for the end of September 2017.The location for setting the entire underwater story, fell on a small bay near Trogir, Jelinak bay, which proved to be perfect due to the depth of up to 10 meters. “Jelinak Bay belongs to the municipality of Marina, which readily accepted our idea and thus enriched and expanded its tourist offer. We are convinced that the project is very important for the whole region and that it will greatly contribute to the tourism industry. ” points out Josko Kandija, one of the originators of this new and unique tourist attraction.”Cross stations will be set at a depth of 4 to 9 meters, and in this way diving will be adapted to everyone, as well as experienced divers, as well as to beginners, those who have never before experienced stunning landscapes of the depths of the sea.. The plan is to place a large statue of Jesus about 9 meters high in March, before Easter, at a depth of 18 meters, which would mark the 15th station of the Way of the Cross. Also, the plan is to illuminate the entire underwater park so that you can dive and see the Way of the Cross at night, which will certainly be another attraction and special feature of the underwater park.”Concludes Kandija.last_img read more

Boeing 737 MAX inches towards flying again

first_img“The FAA will not speculate when the work will be completed. The agency continues to follow a deliberate process and will take the time it needs to thoroughly review Boeing’s work,” the FAA said.”We will lift the grounding order only after FAA safety experts are satisfied that the aircraft meets certification standards.”The MAX has been grounded worldwide since March 13, 2019, following an Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed 157 people. That catastrophe came just a few months after a Lion Air MAX crash that killed 189 people.The MAX’s anti-stall flight system, the MCAS, was partially to blame for both crashes. But other technical malfunctions, including one involving electrical wiring, were subsequently detected during the aircraft’s modification process, slowing down its recertification.The FAA, like Boeing, is under scrutiny over its role in the development of the MAX, which has been sharply criticized by government auditors and on Capitol Hill.Representatives Peter DeFazio, an Oregon Democrat who chairs the House Transportation Committee, and Rick Larsen, a Washington state Democrat who chairs the aviation subcommittee, released a letter late Monday asking the agency to provide a recent safety culture survey of employees. “We believe reviewing the results of this survey will help our Committee properly fulfill our congressional role overseeing the FAA and its efforts to help improve the safety culture at the agency,” DeFazio and Larsen said.Topics : The public comment period will be open for 45 days.The FAA statement moves the MAX a step further on the recertification path after the agency on July 1 completed test flights on the plane.While the FAA said the announcement is an “important milestone,” the agency emphasized that recertifying the MAX was not a done deal and that there were additional steps even after the public comment period is complete.These include a final report reviewing and addressing public comments, and a review of Boeing’s final design documentation. All MAX aircraft manufactured since the crashes also will need to be personally inspected by FAA staff. The grounded Boeing 737 MAX moved another step closer towards flying again Tuesday as US regulators said they would soon accept public comments on a roadmap to recertify the jet. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said it would issue a proposed airworthiness directive for the MAX, which has been grounded since March 2019 following two deadly crashes.The listing published in the Federal Register will seek comments on suggested design changes and crew procedures “to mitigate the safety issues identified during the investigations that followed the Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines accidents,” the FAA said.last_img read more

first_imgThe U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston District, is currently conducting post-storm analyses on their federal storm damage reduction projects.The two federal storm damage reduction projects managed by the Charleston District in South Carolina are Folly Beach and the Grand Strand.“The Charleston District will perform an initial assessment of Folly Beach this week and the Grand Strand early next week to document any sand loss from the projects,” reported the Corps.Once that is completed, a detailed report will be written and sent to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Headquarters where it will be reviewed to see if the projects meet the necessary criteria to qualify for emergency funding.Myrtle Beach Renourishment UpdateThe Myrtle Beach Storm Damage Reduction Project will resume construction at Surfside Beach in the coming days. The contractor, Great Lakes Dredge and Dock, will start pumping and dredging at 8th Avenue South and will move south, as originally scheduled.USACE added that since weather and mechanical delays are built into the construction timeline, there will be no impact to the schedule. Construction on Garden City and Surfside Beach will be completed by the end of September and begin on North Myrtle Beach in October.“The portion of the project that was completed pre-Hurricane Irma successfully did the job it was intended to do,” said Wes Wilson, project manager. “The people and property behind the dunes were protected from major damage. If erosion did occur during Hurricane Irma, sand replacement would depend on funding and contractor availability.”last_img read more

Italy police arrest cardiologists

first_imgHealthInternationalLifestylePrint Italy police arrest cardiologists by: – November 9, 2012 14 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring! Share The detained doctors are accused of malpractice and corruptionPolice in Italy have arrested nine cardiologists over allegations that they carried out unauthorised experimental treatments on patients.All the doctors arrested are linked to the Policlinico hospital in Modena. The doctors are also accused of corruption and embezzlement. The police told local media that they had seized around 1m euros ($1.2m; £0.8m).The police say their ongoing inquiry also includes an investigation into two suspicious deaths at the hospital. One of the doctors has been put in jail while the others are under house arrest.Investigators “uncovered a well-oiled organisation made up of cardiologists and representatives from companies supplying medical equipment, implicated in corrupt business affairs”, a police statement said, according to the AFP news agency.The investigation has also involved 12 firms, six of them foreign, that supply medical equipment. They have been barred from working with the state health service while the inquiry continues.The investigation began after a consumer protection group started to receive anonymous tip-offs about alleged irregularities at the hospital, the BBC’s Alan Johnston in Rome reports. The authorities seem to have become increasingly concerned as they scrutinised both the medical and financial practices there, our correspondent adds.“[The investigation] reveals – if the serious accusations are confirmed – that a number of professionals are sadly not playing by the rules,” Health Minister Renato Balduzzi said, according to the Associated Press news agency.BBC Newscenter_img Share Share Tweetlast_img read more

Ambrose pens Livington 18-month deal

first_imgRelatedPosts Derby County want Jordon Ibe Derby County lead Jordon Ibe chase Joe Aribo out of Super Eagles friendlies Former Nigerian international, Efe Ambrose, has joined Livingston on an 18-month contract. The Nigerian has been without a club since his period at Derby County came to an end. The West Lothian side are currently fifth in the league and want to ensure that they achieve a top six finish. And Ambrose will get a chance to face his former side when Celtic visit the Tony Macaroni Arena on March 4. Ambrose was delighted to get the deal agreed to join Livi. “I spoke to Marvin Bartley when I got the idea in my head to come back to Scotland,” he explained to the Media, as reported by Scottish Sun. “When he went to Livingston from Hibs in the summer I followed the move closely. I watched him play and called him up and he told me it was a really good club. “I also know what has been going on in Scottish football because I have been watching even when I was back home in Africa. And eventually I decided I wanted to come back to Scotland and play again. “So I spoke with Marv and then spoke with the coaches to see what we can do and everything progressed from there.” Ambrose will wear the number 25 shirt and goes straight into the squad for Saturday’s trip to old club, Hibernian. He said: “I thought something might happen in December but we couldn’t get it done at the time. I was disappointed, I kept asking my agent to see if we could make it happen. “And when Livingston signed another defender in January I thought the door was closed. But the chance has now come up again. And now I want to help Livingston achieve what they want to, which is the top six, and then fight for the European places. “Nothing is impossible in football,” he said. Ambrose, now 31, arrived at Celtic in 2012 and immediately became a fans favourite with his trade-mark summersaults when he scored away to St Mirren. But Barcelona – they the greatest club side in the world were due to arrive in the East End of Glasgow and Celtic were far from being at their strongest. It was no problem to Efe and Co and Messi and other superstars were kept out until finally getting a goal in stoppage time but it was too late with Celtic already two goals to the good. Ambrose went to the African Nations Cup in early 2013 and ended up winning the trophy with Nigeria and the Celtic man was named in the team of the tournament. He rushed back to help Celtic and play in the Champions League against Juventus but the Italians had noticed a weakness in dealing with high balls up the park and they ruthlessly exposed Efe’s Achilles heel. More mistakes followed and gradually the support turned on Ambrose and it clearly affected his confidence. After scoring an own goal in Dublin in a friendly against Barcelona early in Brendan Rodgers’ time at Celtic manager, it was clear from the support’s reaction, that everyone had had enough and Rodgers put everyone out of their misery by moving Ambrose on.Tags: CelticDerby CountyEfe AmbroseTony Macaronilast_img read more

Mancini gives Bernabeu backing to United

first_img The consolation from his own side’s exit from Europe’s number one club competition was that the Blues chief has always felt it could be the distraction to United that aids City’s cause. And that belief was heightened when the Red Devils were paired with Real in a blockbuster last 16 tie, which will be played at the Bernabeu on Wednesday. Mancini said: “It is normal when you play against Real Madrid in the Champions League you can lose your strength. So I support Manchester United to go through in the Champions League.” Press Association The odds remain stacked against City, who have slipped nine points behind Sir Alex Ferguson’s men after drawing their last two games, against QPR and Liverpool. But Mancini is refusing to throw in the towel, given the Blues were eight points behind with only six games remaining last season and managed to turn the situation around. Mancini said: “(Manchester United) have nine points more than us. But if we can recover eight points in six games, recovering nine in 13 games will be easy. “I never remember the title race being finished 10 or 13 games before the end. Three years ago Chelsea were nine points behind at one point. By the time they played at Old Trafford two or three games from the end, they were only three points behind. “In the end, if Manchester United win all their games from now to the end of the season, they deserve to win. But I am sure we have another chance.” The possible return from injury of skipper Vincent Kompany and African Nations Cup duty in the case of Yaya and Kolo Toure offers a significant selection boost ahead of Saturday evening’s trip to Southampton. Unless City complete another great escape, they will end up with only the FA Cup to play for, but Mancini believes some satisfaction can be gained from the campaign, even if City lose their title. “It is important we are there, on the top and fighting for the title every year,” he said. “If another team is better than you, you should accept it. But I don’t think anyone has played better than us over the last two years.” center_img Roberto Mancini will be cheering Manchester United to Champions League success against Real Madrid next week – but only because it will give Manchester City more chance of retaining their Barclays Premier League title.last_img read more

Advocaat sets six-point target

first_img Advocaat told SAFSEE: “We know that we have to get results – we need at least six points in the last six games, then we have a chance to stay up, and we have the feeling that we can do something. “We have still to learn if and when you go behind, that you can still change a game, and we forgot to do that against Crystal Palace. “But this is a different game, a new game. We know there are only six games to go, only five weeks. We can show that we want to stay up, and I have the feeling that the players are really up for it, so hopefully we can show something on Saturday.” A 4-1 home defeat by Palace last time out set the alarm bells ringing in earnest, and while Sunderland have a game in hand on several of their rivals, it is a trip to Arsenal four days before they travel to champions-elect Chelsea in an intensely difficult finish to the campaign. Sunderland head coach Dick Advocaat has set his players a six-point target to preserve their Barclays Premier League status. The Black Cats sit just a point above the drop zone going into Saturday’s testing trip to Stoke and knowing their stay in the top flight is under serious threat with Leicester in particular making a late charge. However, he is convinced two wins or the equivalent from their remaining six games will be enough to prevent them slipping into the Sky Bet Championship. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Everton defender Leighton Baines could be set for first game of season

first_img And while the manager indicated the “physically ready” Baines could feature against Bournemouth, he also emphasised a key factor in the late call to be made will be the 30-year-old’s mental preparedness for a return to action. “Physically, from a medical point of view, Leighton is ready,” Martinez said. “It is just making sure that we give him the right introduction to get that match fitness – and more than anything, it is about having the confidence back in terms of being able to go into a 50-50 challenge without feeling fearful. “We need to be very careful we give him the confidence and prepare his body to be really strong. “So we’ll take it day-by-day and make a decision tomorrow in terms of being involved on Saturday. “It is just about giving Leighton exactly what he needs. “It is no good to rush him back, then lose him for the rest of the campaign. It is important we give him the right adaptation period.” Everton – who also could have fit-again midfielder Muhamed Besic back involved – head into the Bournemouth game in fine fettle, with last Saturday’s 4-0 thrashing of Aston Villa making it seven points accrued and 11 goals scored in their last three fixtures. A shining light against Villa and of late in general is Gerard Deulofeu, the Spanish playmaker brought back to the club over the summer. Deulofeu had a successful stint on loan at Everton from Barcelona in 2013-14 and returned on a permanent deal after failing to get into the Barca team in 2014-15, instead being sent out on loan to Sevilla. Amid the 21-year-old’s sparkling recent form, there has been talk of Barca triggering a buyback clause in his contract, but Deulofeu was quoted this week as saying he wants to stay with Everton “for a lot of years”. And Martinez feels Deulofeu and Everton is a “perfect fit”. “We all know the incredible, world-class talent he has,” Martinez said. “What is very impressive is his determination of becoming as good as he can be. He has the desire to become better, and looks free and happy. “He is a perfect fit – he looks around and sees the support of our fans, and there is a real chemistry and connection. A nd it is still early days in his Everton career.” Everton boss Roberto Martinez has stressed the importance of taking a careful approach with Leighton Baines as he considers whether to involve the full-back in Saturday’s clash with Bournemouth. Baines is yet to make a first-team appearance this season due to an ankle injury, but continued to step up his rehabilitation on Sunday with a 45-minute run-out for the Toffees’ under-21s. Martinez spoke last week of taking things “day by day” in terms of a decision on when the England international should return to the full Everton side, a phrase he used again on Thursday at his press conference for the Barclays Premier League game at the Vitality Stadium.
