Campur Biofuel dan Avtur, United Airlines Sukses Layani Penerbangan Trans-Atlantik Terlama!,Cathay Pacific Hibahkan Boeing 777-200 Perdana Ke Museum Dirgantara di Arizona

first_imgSebagaimana yang dihimpun KabarPenumpang.com dari berbagai laman sumber, adapun moda yang digunakan oleh pihak United Airlines dalam penerbangan Trans-Atlantik ini adalah Boeing 787 Dreamliner. “Penerbangan ini adalah salah satu dari banyak langkah yang diperlukan untuk mengurangi emisi gas rumah kaca jangka panjang,” ujar Chief Commercial Officer World Energy, Bryan Sherbacow.Seperti yang kita ketahui bersama, World Energy merupakan perusahaan pelopor bahan bakar jet terbarukan – selain menyediakan solusi bahan bakar rendah karbon untuk industri transportasi darat. Suksesnya penerbangan United di atas merupakan pencapaian tersendiri bagi World Energy. “Kami senang dapat menyediakan solusi bahan bakar rendah karbon, dimana ini akan membantu setiap pelanggan kami untuk memenuhi misi ramah lingkungan,” tandas Bryan.Selain itu, penggunaan biofuel di United sendiri merupakan salah satu misi perusahaan yang menargetkan pengurangan emisi gas rumah kaca sebesar 50 persen pada tahun 2050.Baca Juga: Kenali Dua Jenis Bahan Bakar Pesawat Yuk!Namun penggunaan biofuel dalam penerbangan United Airlines tersebut tidak serta merta diterima masyarakat begitu saja. Ada beberapa golongan yang masih kebingungan – dimana sempat beredar pemberitaan tentang bahan bakar biofuel yang tidak ramah terhadap sebagian komponen mesin, dimana lambat laun akan memperpendek umur dari komponen tersebut.Pada kenyataannya, pencampuran bahan bakar jet konvensional dengan biofuel ini sudah diatur secara global dan tertuang dalam American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) D7566-11: tentang Spesifikasi untuk Bahan Bakar Turbin Aviasi yang Mengandung Hidrokarbon ter-Sintesis. Dikutip dari laman den.go.id, standar baru ini memungkinkan pencampuran komponen sintetik (biofuel) hingga 50 persen kedalam bahan bakar jet konvensional.

Lae to play host to NSBL tournament

first_imgBasketball By KEVIN TEME The Morobe provincial capital will now be the host of the 13th National Souths Basketball League tournament. NSBL patron Johnny Yawari revealed this week that Goroka will not be hosting the tournament due to the unavailability of basketball courts. The biggest annual event that had earlier been set for this month has now been deferred to July during the Remembrance Day long weekend. “Our plan was to host the games in Goroka which was the central venue for all the highlands provinces including Lae and Madang. However because there are not enough courts to host the games, the executives have decided to take the game to Lae,” Yawari said. Lae Basketball Association will be hosting the tournament from July 27-29. “It is certainly going to be a big year for NSBL. We are expecting a big number of teams participating in this tournament,” NSBL president Silas Nicky said. Nicky said teams as far as the eastern end of Southern Highlands that include Gobe, Tapili, Erave, Kutubu, Ialibu, Mendi, Imbonggu, Pangia, Koare and Kagua are already set to send both their men’s and women’s teams for the event. “Others regular teams from Mt Hagen, Chimbu and Port Moresby are preparing to travel when they are made aware of the venue and date (of the tournament). We now know that Lae will be the hosting venue for this year’s challenge,” Nicky said. Women’s champions Kutubu Lakers will be defending their title while Mayaiwala Souths from Erave, a Port Moresby-based team, will be making their presence felt during the tournament. “We have exciting news to tell while in Lae we urge all Southern Highlanders including our respective district provincial governments to get behind their respective teams and make this year’s tournament a success,” Nicky said. Meanwhile, Nicky said registration for each club is K1000 and must be paid to the NSBL account. For account details and further information, Nicky can be contacted on 72784445.last_img read more

I’m sure we’ll see more traditional team names though – a takeoff on where they play as an ode to the schools they are playing at. Penn State = Pennsylvania Mountain Lions, etc.Then again, with the stock market being as carzy as it is, is this such a bad investment?

First 10,000 in a 80,000 seat stadium would look terrible on TV, but put them in a 25,000 seat stadium and it would look a lot better. Second do the Florida State, Penn State, and Notre Dames of the world need more money? Nope! But those I-AA schools like Towson, Hofstra, Lafayette, Portland State and many more, it would be a terrific addition to the revenue stream. They should stay clear of the I-A behemoths and focus on I-AA schools in metro areas.

Spectacular line-up for inaugural Furusiyya Nations’ Cup final

first_imgHome  »  Disciplines News  »  Spectacular line-up for inaugural Furusiyya Nations’ Cup final It could hardly be more exciting as the star-studded line-up for the inaugural Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping Final has now been confirmed. Horse-and-rider combinations from 18 countries will gather at the Real Club de Polo in Barcelona, Spain next week – from 26 to 29 September – to decide who will carve their names into the history books as the very first Furusiyya champions.When the Saudi Equestrian Fund pledged its support to the new-look series during last year’s FEI General Assembly in Istanbul, Turkey it marked a turning-point for the cherished FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping concept, extending it from its traditional European base to reach out to every country around the globe. The four-year, €16m Saudi sponsorship package, and the commitment of the FEI’s new Top Partner, the Swiss watchmakers Longines who are Official Timekeepers for the series, have broken new ground and moved the sport into an exciting new era.From the OutsetAnd from the outset at Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates in February, where Saudi Arabia and Qatar qualified, to the last leg of the European Division 2 series at Arezzo in Italy just two weeks ago where Brazil won through and Austria clinched the very last of the much-sought-after qualifying spots, it has been a rip-roaring first season.A total of six countries have qualified from Europe Division 1 – France, Great Britain, Ireland, The Netherlands, Switzerland and Ukraine – while Belgium, Sweden and Austria have emerged from Europe Division 2. With the world divided into six regions, the USA and Canada qualified from the North America, Central America and Caribbean region.For some countries however it was less of a battle because, if the region was not in a position to stage a relevant CSIO, then the qualifying spots were determined by positions on the Longines Rankings. As a result, South America’s Brazil and Colombia have made the cut while Australia and Japan will represent the Asia/Australasia region. Egypt has declined the invitation to compete on behalf of the African region.Final FormatThe action gets underway with the horse inspection on Wednesday 25 September while the draw for order-of-go will be staged on Thursday 26 September. The first of the three Furusiyya Final competitions will be held on Friday 27. It will be a one-round class over a 1.60m course built by Spanish course designer Santiago Varela Ullastres, and all 18 teams will compete. Only the top eight teams will go through to Sunday’s finale.The remaining 10 teams will line out on Saturday in the Team Consolation competition which again is a one-round 1.60m class and which offers €300,000 in prize money.Sunday’s third and last leg of the Final offers a massive €1,500,000 in prize money and is a one-round competition with a jump-off, if required, to decide first place. All nations start on a zero score, and with the added incentive of an additional prize pot of €200,000 which will be equally divided between all those achieving a clear round in the first Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping Final competition on Friday, and/or a fault-free effort in the first round on Sunday afternoon, it is no surprise that so many of the biggest names in the sport are on call over this historic weekend.In fact 10 of the top 20 riders from the current Longines Rankings will be there including World No. 1 Ben Maher from Great Britain along with his London 2012 Olympic Games and PSI FEI European Championships 2013 gold-medal-winning team-mate Scott Brash. What a hat-trick it would be if the British could add the inaugural Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping title to their recent haul of loot.Looks StrongNew FEI European Individual champion, Roger-Yves Bost from France, will not line out with his great mare, Castle Forbes Myrtille Paulois, because she has picked up an injury, but the French team still looks strong with Patrice Delaveau, currently No. 13 in the Longines Rankings, and Penelope Leprevost amongst the five French team contenders.The Australian side will be led by Edwina Tops-Alexander, while the Austrian selection includes Dieter Kofler, Julia Kaysar and Stefan Eder who worked so hard to help clinch that last-minute qualifying spot in Arezzo. Like several other countries, the Belgians have opted for new faces alongside considerably older ones, 17-year-old Jos Verlooy having earned his spot with a spectacular performance at the recent PSI FEI European Jumping Championships 2013 in Denmark.Running on AdrenalinThe Brazilians will still be running on the adrenalin created by their brilliant victory in Italy two weeks ago, and with Rodrigo Pessoa and Alvaro Affonso De Miranda Neto on board they may well prove very tough nuts to crack. The Canadian side includes 2008 Olympic champion Eric Lamaze while Daniel Bluman, who won the hearts of spectators at this year’s Dublin Horse Show, is a crucial member of the Colombian side.Ireland’s Denis Lynch and Billy Twomey, Taizo Sugitani from Japan, Qatar’s Sheikh Ali bin Khalid Al Thani, 2000 Olympic champion Jeroen Dubbeldam from The Netherlands, 2012 Olympic Champion Steve Guerdat from Switzerland, 2011 European Champion Rolf-Göran Bengtsson from Sweden, Ulrich Kirchhoff who took team and individual gold for Germany at the Atlanta Games in 1996 but who now competes for Ukraine, and 2013 FEI World Cup™ Champion Beezie Madden from the USA – the cast of stars is an extraordinary one.Different PressureFor the Spanish and Saudi Arabian sides however there is a different kind of pressure. The home runners will want to put their very best foot forward on home ground so there will be a lot riding on the performances of Sergio Alvarez Moya and Pilar Cordon in particular. Meanwhile the Saudi Arabian team looks formidable, with three members of their London 2012 bronze medal winning team – Kamal Bahamdan, HRH Prince Abdullah Al Saud and Ramzy Al Duhami – in action. They will surely want to leave their mark on this inaugural Final supported by the Saudi Equestrian Fund.The sport of Nations Cup Jumping has long been recognised for camaraderie and sportsmanship matched with the fierce passion and great pride of competing for one’s country. Described by FEI President, Princess Haya, as “the jewel in the crown” of the FEI, it continues to grow and thrive 104 years after it all began. The inaugural Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping Final looks set to launch it to a whole new level, and it’s just around the corner. 20 September 2013, 10:35 Tags: Spectacular line-up for inaugural Furusiyya Nations’ Cup final last_img read more
