zoom India has taken a step toward increasing seaborne imports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as the country held a ground breaking ceremony for the construction of an LNG terminal in Bhadrak.Officials informed that cargoes carried from the US, Canada and Qatar would be delivered to the INR 60 billion (USD 930.3 million) Bhadrak terminal, which will be located at the port of Dhamra. Although India has import terminals in Gujarat and Maharashtra, the new terminal will be the country’s first LNG terminal.Under the development plans, the LNG terminal will have a capacity of 5 million metric tons per year and is expected to contribute to the process of development and economic growth in eastern India, according to Dharmendra Pradhan, India’s Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas.Pradhan further informed that the terminal, which will provide employment and investment opportunities, along with access to clean fuel, is expected to be commissioned by 2020-21.“Dhamra will be a vital link in connecting Eastern India to the gas infrastructure of the country and will also benefit neighboring countries,” Pradhan said.World Maritime News Staff

Los Angeles: Actor Demi Moore says she has changed her life and shifted her priorities over the last seven years. The 56-year-old actor opened up about it while speaking to Gwyneth Paltrow and Arianna Huffington at the ‘2019 In Goop Health’ summit, reports people.com. Moore said she has shifted her priorities to refocus on her health and the people around her in the “last seven years”. “My relationships are more important, and what I do comes second,” she said. She no longer looks outwards for validation. “What does it matter what anyone thinks?” she said. “Nothing is that bad.” This new outlook came after “my health took me down”, Moore said, referencing her 2012 collapse at her home. The actor, who is a mother of three was hospitalised after the incident and entered a rehab treatment for addiction and an eating disorder.
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Monday refused to grant any interim relief to Robert Vadra, brother-in-law of Congress President Rahul Gandhi. Vadra has challenged a money laundering case brought against him. A division bench of Justice Hima Kohli and Justice Vinod Goel asked the Centre and Enforcement Directorate (ED) to file response on Vadra and his close associate Manoj Arora’s plea challenging certain provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

The trial court which on March 19 extended Vadra’s interim protection from arrest till March 25, will hear his anticipatory bail plea post lunch. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has questioned him in the case several times. The agency has also requested the trial court to dismiss his anticipatory bail as it may require his custodial interrogation in the case. The case relates to ownership of 1.9 million pounds overseas assets by Vadra. It pertains to undisclosed foreign assets and entities to evade tax.
Damascus: Syria said Wednesday that Israel had attacked targets just north of the city of Aleppo and that its defences had shot down several missiles. “Army air defences repels an Israeli air aggression that targeted a number of industrial sites in Sheikh Najjar industrial zone, north-east of Aleppo, and downed a number of the hostile missiles,” the official SANA news agency said, citing an unnamed military source. A number of residents of Aleppo city told AFP that the attack led to a power cut in the whole city. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USThe Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the Israeli bombardment hit “ammunition stores belonging to Iranian forces and allied groups, and caused huge explosions.” If confirmed, this would be the first attack on Syrian territory since US President Donald Trump signed Monday a proclamation recognising Israel’s 1981 annexation of the strategic Golan Heights plateau which it seized from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War. Earlier this year in January, Israel targeted a number of Iranian installations in the country, hours after intercepting a rocket fired from Syrian territory. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 21 people, mostly Iranians, were killed in those attacks. Israel insists that it has the right to continue to target positions in Syria held by Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah. In May 2018, Israeli strikes killed 27 pro-regime fighters including 11 Iranians in strikes on dozens of targets inside Syria.
With its home opener on Feb. 13 approaching, the Ohio State women’s lacrosse team is looking to enter the 2016 season with the strong leadership and influence from nine seniors guiding the way.Alexis Venechanos, the sixth-year coach of the Buckeyes, said she looks to use this leadership for optimal success in the upcoming season.“This senior class was my first full recruiting class, and they are bringing their leadership out in so many different ways,” Venechanos said. “We’ve been giving our seniors control of the practices, where they’re in charge of working on our energy and giving feedback to our players, giving them a voice on the field.”Senior attackman Olivia DiCarlantonio said the senior class is a special one because each player is proud to be a Buckeye.“As a grade, we try to live up to the girls older than us, so we make a lot of decisions based on what we were taught as underclassmen,” DiCarlantonio said. “Our grade wants to build a legacy of Buckeyes to come, so we felt that if we prepared the younger girls and helped them realize what an honor it is to being playing for Ohio State, then we will be a successful team.”Senior defender Katie Keefe said the senior class has skills that, when brought together, help the team as a whole.“The feelings of just coming and getting the job done are out the window,” Keefe said. “They’re replaced with the idea that there is no next year for us, so we give it our all and go out with a bang.”The Buckeyes enjoyed a degree of success in 2015, going 13-8, including a trip to the Big Ten tournament championship. Their trip to the NCAA tournament was not a long one, however, as a 13-11 loss to Notre Dame sent the Scarlet and Gray home looking forward to the next year.The next year is now upon them, and, despite graduating several playmakers, DiCarlantonio said the team has an improved amount of talent and depth, giving it high aspirations to make a longer run than its brief taste of tournament play a season ago.“As a team, the goal is to always go all the way,” she said. “(Venechanos) has us focusing on positive energy and really being locked into the moment and that’s allowing everyone to improve individually and as a team.”OSU women’s lacrosse members celebrate a win over Maryland on May 1. Credit: Courtesy of Ben SolomanKeefe said now that a good amount of the team’s starters have graduated, it has given other players the challenge of filling those spots.“It’s our job to show the rest of the lacrosse community that the Buckeyes can still be a powerful team and end with another successful season,” Keefe said. “This idea reminds us that we all have a common goal we will work for as a team, and the only way to get there is to keep our energy high and our attitudes tough.”Venechanos said the team is looking forward to finishing up the preseason and getting on the field against an opponent.“We think we’re in the best lacrosse conference in the country,” Venechanos said. “We have Northwestern and Maryland, the two dynasties of women’s lacrosse, in our backyard, so if we do well in the Big Ten Conference, we will continue to make a name for ourselves nationally.”OSU is set to kick off its 2016 season on Feb. 13 with its home opener against Detroit. Faceoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. OSU then-junior attacker Rainey Hodgson (6) during a game against Maryland on May 1.

Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee voiced his support for the Big Ten conference’s investigation into the benefits of adding a 12th team in a meeting with Lantern editors earlier this month.“I’ve made very clear that I am supportive of asking the question [of how the Big Ten would benefit from adding a team],” he said.The Big Ten Council of Presidents/Chancellors, of which Gee is a member, decided at a meeting in early December that “the timing is right for the conference to once again conduct a thorough evaluation of options for conference structure and expansion,” according to a statement issued by the Big Ten.The process is expected to take 12 to 18 months, and no action on expansion is expected in the near future, according to the statement. The conference has considered expansion several times since the addition of formerly independent Penn State in 1990, but Gee said he senses that the talks are more serious this time. “As athletic directors, we discuss it every single year. This year … we felt like the timing was right to begin to look at all the issues to see what the real pros and cons are,” OSU athletic director Gene Smith said in a December press conference.Scheduling questionsIf the Big Ten decides to add a 12th team, it raises a bevy of new questions, regardless of which school joins. At this point in the process, nobody has the answers. The Big Ten nimbly solved the problem of naming the conference when it expanded to 11 teams by subtly hiding the numeral “11” inside the conference’s logo, but the math becomes more difficult when it comes to scheduling opponents.“The dominant issue will be the fact that there is an inelegance in having 11 teams,” Gee said. “We can’t quite play each other quite like we want to.”A 12-team structure would lend itself to a format with two divisions of six teams each, similar to the structure of the Southeastern Conference and Big 12. Both of those conferences hold a championship game between the division winners as the last game of the regular season. True OSU football fans can already imagine the problem that this would create: What would happen to the OSU-Michigan game, traditionally the last game of the regular season for both teams?Along with Penn State, Michigan is assigned to a game with OSU every year, while the other eight schools follow a rotation to fill the six remaining conference games on the schedule. Each Big Ten school follows this format, with its own pair of designated opponents.“I don’t know why that would change,” said Shelly Poe, OSU’s director of athletic communications for football. Poe said that discussions about scheduling rivalry games would likely occur later in the expansion process.Big Ten spokesman Scott Chipman said that there were no updates to announce since the December meeting of the Council of Presidents/Chancellors.Notre Dame unlikely to joinBased in part on geography and academic quality, Missouri, Nebraska, Pittsburgh, Rutgers and Syracuse have been the subject of media speculation as candidates for inclusion in the Big Ten. The biggest name, though, is Notre Dame, which is currently a member of the Big East conference for basketball, but is independent in football.Notre Dame is a “very fine institution,” Gee said, but is not among the 62 members of the Association of American Universities, to which all 11 current Big Ten schools, as well as the other rumored candidates for inclusion, belong. “We want to play in an academic consortium in which we have like kinds of institutions,” Gee said. “That will be very important to us.”Lack of membership in the AAU would not necessarily preclude an invitation to the Big Ten, Gee said. “I would not say that it’s absolute, but we certainly want to have like-minded institutions,” he said. “For example, there could be some institutions that are really elegant undergraduate institutions that don’t meet the criteria of the AAU, [which is] made up of these massive research institutions.”Notre Dame placed 20th in the most recent edition of U.S. News and World Report’s college rankings, higher than all Big Ten schools except Northwestern.For its part, Notre Dame has stated that it does not plan on joining the Big Ten. The school’s athletic director, Jack Swarbrick, told the Chicago Tribune in December that “our strong preference is to remain the way we are.” “It’s not on the radar,” said John Heisler, a Notre Dame spokesman, in an interview with The Lantern. “When the subject was discussed, our athletic director … made it clear that the independence of our football program has been a long-standing tradition and continues to be important to us.”TV contracts figure prominentlyCollege football is tradition-heavy, but it’s also big business. Notre Dame and NBC have a contract to televise Notre Dame football through 2015. The New York Times placed the contract’s value at $15 million per year, while The Chicago Tribune reported a value of $9 million per year.By comparison, the Big Ten has contracts with multiple broadcasting companies to help fund a variety of televised varsity sports. The Big Ten Network and an agreement with Fox that runs through 2027 (with an option for five more years) could pay each school an average of $10.18 million per year if it reaches its financial projections, according to the Sports Business Journal. The network “is obviously on a very successful trajectory,” Smith said in the press conference. The conference also pulls in an average of $100 million per year from its 10-year deal with ESPN (which runs through 2016) and another $2 million per year from its 10-year deal with CBS. Combined, these deals will pay each Big Ten school about $927,000 per year over the life of the contract, according to the Sports Business Journal.Last year, OSU also signed a media rights deal with IMG College and RadiOhio worth almost $128 million over 10 years. Given the numbers involved, television contracts will undoubtedly be a major factor in determining the possibility of any Big Ten expansion.“As you look at the college landscape across the country, and look at television contracts that are coming up within the next five to eight years, this is probably the right time for us to see if there’s any value to try and add a team or teams,” Smith said.Even if a 12th team added to the conference’s television value, the conference currently shares its television revenue among its member schools. Adding another team would also mean a thinner slice of the proverbial pie for each school.“That is an issue for us; do we divide it 12 ways or 14 ways?” Gee said. “What do we do?”As for Notre Dame, the school’s decision to remain independent “has a lot more to do with our priorities than it does with business issues,” Swarbrick told The Chicago Tribune.Representatives for Missouri and Pittsburgh, the other schools subject to the most frequent speculation, did not return calls seeking comment.
It seems Manchester United star David De Gea is about to switch to Real Madrid in a sensational swap deal involving Cristiano Ronaldo.The Old Trafford goalkeeper almost joined the Spanish giants in 2015, and ever since then, they haven’t taken their eyes off United No 1 as he has been the long-term target for Real.And according to Spanish news outlet Don Balon, Real Madrid have proposed a stunning swap deal to United involving De Gea and Ronaldo, via Express Uk.Man Utd intends to bring back Ronaldo to Old Trafford this summer and Don Balon say Madrid believes they can secure De Gea and £88m (€100m) for Portugal talisman, Ronaldo, as Mourinho is willing to lose his goalkeeper if that the only way of bringing Ronaldo back to Old Trafford.Ronaldo left United in 2009 for a then world-record fee of £80m as he may be leaving Real as the all-time leading goalscorer and also guided them to three consecutive Champions League triumphs.Zidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.De Gea on his own has been vocal on his future in recent weeks, refusing to rule out the possibility of a departure from United.“My future? The important thing is the World Cup and not to think of anything else that can divert you or upset you,” said De Gea.“You have to be focused on having a good World Cup – we are all good. Hopefully, we can go far and win.“Football is football and a thousand things can happen.“But I’m always calm. Come what may, I’ll be the same. It is important to be focused and be 100 per cent.”
