However, the signs of stress on some of the UK’s largest firms cannot be ignored. “No sector has been immune, and we are seeing financial services firms issue profit warnings at a rate well above historic precedent, although many are coming from the smaller players.

News / More questions raised over Seaborne’s ability to operate Ramsgate ferries

first_imgID 108847934 © Christine Bird | Dreamstime.com Seaborne Freight is hoping to have completed its dredging at the port of Ramsgate by the end of the month, but questions still remain overs its capabilities to offer capacity in the event of a no-deal Brexit.A spokesperson for the ferry company told The Loadstar the work, which commenced on 3 January, was expected to bring the port back in line with its original parameters.“We are dredging to approximately 6.5 metres and the method being used involves the silt and sediment leaving on the receding tide and being dispersed at sea,” said the spokesperson.“Completion should be by the end of January, however the process is very weather dependant and that timescale could change.”Once dredging is complete, the port can cater for vessels using three berths, one capable of handling 140-metre vessels, and the others 180-metre vessels.The Loadstar understands Seaborne would initially be looking to operate two vessels, although there is still uncertainty over where it will acquire these.“Schedules will be published in due course. However, each vessel will carry out four crossings daily (two rotations),” said the spokesperson. “We are planning  increase to four vessels in due course.”Both Seaborne, which is leasing the dredger Jetsed, and Thanet District Council, which runs Ramsgate port, have said Seaborne would be picking up the cost of the dredge.Previous charges associated with Jetsed have been around £14,000 a day, meaning the Ramsgate process could cost anywhere up to £500,000.Meanwhile, speculation is mounting over a perceived delay in confirming Seaborne’s vessel chartering and whether this is linked to uncertainty over whether these ships will actually be needed.“It [Seaborne] doesn’t yet know if it has to provide these services, so it cannot go out and charter these vessels until it knows it has a requirement,” said one source from the ship chartering community.The source suggested chartering without such certainty could see Seaborne “go bust like the others” – a reference to other recent attempts to operate services out of Ramsgate.Steve Coombes, chairman of the port of Ramsgate action group – a community organisation comprising more than 1,000 local residents worried about losses at the port – argued that this emphasised the problem surrounding the Department for Transport’s decision to contract with Seaborne.“The DfT is pre-buying tickets in the event of a no-deal Brexit and the need this would create to run services into alternative ports to Dover.“But while DFDS and Brittany [the other two contracted parties] have the capacity to offer such services, Seaborne is pre-buying for non-existent ships.”Furthermore, Seaborne’s spokesperson confirmed, the operator has yet to enter into a formal agreement with Ramsgate, which also raises questions over why it is paying for the dredge.However, the spokesperson sought to play down concerns.“The draft contract is agreed and will be signed at the appropriate time. This is quite normal.” By Alexander Whiteman 08/01/2019last_img read more

If the split is completed, their plans would not pay for prescriptions filled at Walmart, which is one of the largest retail pharmacy players in the U.S., offering pharmacies in nearly all of its approximately 4,600 stores.

New government service launched to support quarantine compliance

first_imgNew government service launched to support quarantine compliance The government has launched a service to carry out further visits on people who have a duty to quarantine following international travel.It is still illegal to holiday overseas and those entering the country following international travel must quarantine for a period of 10 days at a managed quarantine site or the address listed on their passenger locator form. Compliance is critical to reduce the risk of Variants of Concern entering the UK.Those quarantining at home may be visited by staff employed on behalf of the NHS Test and Trace service. These checks will be in addition to those already carried out by police officers, who make up to 1,000 home visits per day.NHS Test and Trace staff will not have any enforcement powers, however, a referral will be made to the police if NHS Test and Trace staff have a reason to believe that an individual may be breaching quarantine rules. Officers will consider enforcement action following further investigation.Individuals who fail to comply could be issued with a fixed penalty notice, starting at £1,000 and increasing up to £10,000 for repeat offences. Mitie was awarded the contract to carry out the NHS Test and Trace visits following a government procurement exercise.These checks are in addition to the work by the Isolation Assurance and Compliance Service to contact everyone returning from non-red list countries that are staying in England and Northern Ireland.People are called in order to check their status and to provide advice on the need to self-isolate and what to do if they are experiencing symptoms. They are also given information about taking tests on day 2 and day 8 of their self-isolation period. These calls are made repeatedly, alongside text messages where necessary. Any concerns can then be escalated to decide whether further checks are needed.Those returning from “red list” countries must continue to stay in a managed quarantine site.Last week, the government has set out a framework to chart the safe return of international travel, which could resume from 17 May at the earliest. This will see a traffic light system categorise countries based on risk alongside the restrictions required for travel. /Public Release.

Trey Knight sets national hammer record, named state Athlete of the Year

first_imgTrey Knight sets national hammer record, named state Athlete of the YearPosted by Paul ValenciaDate: Monday, June 29, 2020in: Sportsshare 0 Ridgefield standout makes his mark in hammer throw and also earns recognition from GatoradeIt’s been quite the last few days for Trey Knight of Ridgefield.Knight set a national high school record in the hammer throw on Saturday, and on Monday he was named Washington’s boys track and field boys Player of the Year by Gatorade. Trey Knight of Ridgefield set another record over the weekend. He is the nation’s best high schooler in the hammer throw. Shown here with a discus back in March, Knight also was named the Gatorade’s state boys Athlete of the Year in track and field. Photo by Mike SchultzTrey Knight of Ridgefield set another record over the weekend. He is the nation’s best high schooler in the hammer throw. Shown here with a discus back in March, Knight also was named the Gatorade’s state boys Athlete of the Year in track and field. Photo by Mike SchultzKnight recorded a hammer throw of 261 feet, 7 inches at a throwers meet at Concordia University in Portland on Saturday, breaking a four-year record for high school athletes. Knight just graduated from Ridgefield High School. He will be throwing for the University of Southern California starting next academic year.And on Monday, Knight was announced the state Athlete of the Year for boys track and field for the third consecutive year.Knight had the best weight throw in the nation during the indoor season of his senior season. Due to the state’s shutdown of schools due to the pandemic, there was no outdoor spring season. Based on his indoor accomplishment over the winter, and his past excellence in the outdoor seasons, including last summer, Knight was given the nod by Gatorade.“Trey’s personal record and statistics have not changed since last year, but I can tell you they would have,” Ridgefield track and field coach Gregg Ford told Gatorade, referring to the spring season. “Trey did not skip a beat in his preparation, and there is no doubt he would have improved across the board.”Gatorade also takes into account academics and character. Knight has a 3.65 grade-point average and volunteers his time at Daybreak Youth Services and as a track and field coach for youth.In his three seasons of high school track and field, Knight won two state titles in the discus, including a meet record last year, and two state titles in shot put. He finished second in both events as a freshman.In college, he will specialize in the hammer throw.“It’s harder to be good at multiple things,” Knight told Clark County Today in March. “Disc and shot for me are not my best. If I went to college for that, I really wouldn’t do that well. But the hammer, I’m pretty good at that. That’s what I want to do. It’s my favorite event. That’s definitely where my future is. If I want to go to the Olympics, that’s what it will be in.”And over the weekend, he let the American hammer throw community know he is ready for that challenge. Note: Here is Gatorade’s full press release on Trey Knight: https://playeroftheyear.gatorade.com/poy/assets/writable/60729/2020_BTF_TKnight.pdfAdvertisementThis is placeholder textTags:Clark CountyLatestRidgefieldshare 0 Previous : Eileen Quiring says she will not honor request for her to resign as county chair Next : VIDEO: Sheriff and community participate in parade in support of law enforcementAdvertisementThis is placeholder textlast_img read more
