Maritime Museum Celebrates 95th Anniversary of Historic Vessel

Posted on by

Cracks develop in piers of Ultadanga flyover police bar traffic movement

Posted on by

first_imgKolkata: A section of the Ultadanga flyover, which had collapsed six years ago, has developed cracks, and has been closed for traffic.According to Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority (KMDA) officials, the cracks in pier cap of the flyover were found during a routine check on Tuesday. Urging people not to panic, an official of the KMDA said, “The trouble point has been identified, and will be repaired. Till the repair work is completed, traffic police have shut the flyover for vehicular movement.” Also Read – Centuries-old Durga Pujas continue to be hit among revellers “Both the flanks of Ultadanga New Flyover are closed for all vehicular traffic due to some urgent maintenance work as informed by the KMDA Authority. During the closure of the flyover, vehicles availing Ultadanga New Flyover are requested to avail other routes to avoid inconvenience in and around HUDCO crossing,” a Kolkata Traffic Police tweeted on Wednesday. Sources in the city traffic police said that experts have advised them to keep the flyover shut for three days. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari Puja According to Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority (KMDA) officials, the cracks in pier cap of the flyover were found during a routine check on Tuesday. With the shutdown of the arterial flyover that connect Eastern Metropolitan Bypass and Salt Lake City to VIP Road of the city, commuters had a tough time on Wednesday due to slow traffic movement. “Airport bound vehicles of EM Bypass are requested to take Chingrighata Flyover-New Town road. Airport bound vehicles may avail AJC Bose Road-APC Roy Road-Shyambazar point-RG Kar Road- Jessore Road. City bound vehicles coming from airport are requested to avail Newtown- Chingrighata-EM Bypass,” the Kolkata Traffic Police tweeted. A portion of the flyover had collapsed in 2013. There was no report of casualty as the incident had taken during wee hours (4:30am) of a Sunday morning six years ago. Since the installation of the collapsed section of the flyover, heavy vehicles were barred from using the flyover. An expert on construction of bridges, who inspected Ultadanga flyover on Wednesday, said, “Unlike other bridges, here the issue is not lack of maintenance. It’s not just a crack that has raised an alarm. I feel the construction quality couldn’t match the standard that it should have. We cannot forget that this bridge has already collapsed once, now it’s giving an indication that the entire bridge needs a proper health audit.” After Majerhat bridge collapsed last September, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had set up a bridge inspection and monitoring cell to carry out regular inspections of the bridges in the state. At the same time, the Public Works Department, Irrigation Department and Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority were instructed to have separate Inspection and Monitoring Cells.

Railway executive Hunter Harrison dead at 73 CSX Corporation confirms

Posted on by

first_imgJACKSONVILLE,, Fla. – Hunter Harrison, the plain-spoken, gruff American who rewrote the Canadian railroading book during his years heading both of this country’s largest railways, has died. He was 73.CSX Corp., the American railroad Harrison began leading earlier this year, issued a statement on Saturday announcing his death.The company attributed his death to “unexpectedly severe complications from a recent illness,” the same reason offered when Harrison formally went on medical leave earlier this week.“The entire CSX family mourns this loss. On behalf of our Board of Directors, management team and employees, we extend our deepest sympathies to Hunter’s family,” CSX (NASDAQ:CSX) said in the statement. “Hunter was a larger-than-life figure who brought his remarkable passion, experience and energy in railroading to CSX.”Ewing Hunter Harrison was born in Memphis, Tenn., on Nov. 7, 1944, and began his railroad career in 1964 as a 19-year-old rail car oiler for the St. Louis-San Francisco Railway while attending Memphis State University.His modest start gave no hint that he would eventually serve as the CEO of four major railroads: Chicago-based Illinois Central Railroad, Montreal-based Canadian National Railway, Calgary-based Canadian Pacific Railway and Jacksonville, Fla., railway CSX Corp.Harrison joined the Burlington Northern Railroad in 1980 when it purchased the St. Louis-San Francisco Railway, and he was eventually promoted to vice-president of transportation and service design.Harrison left Burlington Northern in 1989 to become chief operating officer at Illinois Central Railroad, rising to president and CEO in 1993. There, he was credited with initiating scheduled service for freight, a revolutionary concept for the industry.In 1998, Canadian National bought Illinois Central — considered at the time to be the most efficient railway in North America — and Harrison was appointed CN’s chief operating officer.He became CEO of CN in 2003, succeeding Paul Tellier, and served in that position until his retirement at the end of 2009. He moved to his estate in Connecticut, where he raised and trained horses for show jumping.In the fall of 2011, Harrison was approached by activist investor Bill Ackman, head of hedge fund Pershing Square Capital Management, and enlisted to help with a proxy battle at CP Rail. After winning the crucial vote at the annual shareholder meeting in 2012, Ackman appointed Harrison as CEO, replacing Fred Green.In early 2017, Harrison abruptly resigned from CP, five months earlier than scheduled.He gave up stock options and other compensation worth a total of $122.9 million to become CEO of CSX, a U.S. competitor, although he was later reimbursed by CSX.Throughout his career, Harrison was adored by retail investors who rewarded his cost-cutting and attention to making the trains run as efficiently as possible by bidding higher on the shares of the railroads he headed.As an illustration, CSX shares plunged nearly 10 per cent on Dec. 15, the morning after it announced he was taking medical leave and would be temporarily replaced by chief operating officer Jim Foote.Unions were enraged by the thousands of job reductions he ordered. And they complained safety was compromised when he ordered managers and office workers at CP Rail be trained so that they could drive locomotives if union members went out on strike.Institutional investors complained his compensation and perks were excessive and CP Rail moved to scale them back after he left.“Professionally, Hunter was unmatched in this industry. He will go down as the best railroader ever, plain and simple,” said Keith Creel, Harrison’s hand-picked successor at CP Rail said in a statement released Saturday.“What he has done at multiple railroads and for our industry the last 50-plus years is incredible which includes bringing CP back to its rightful place among leaders in the Class 1 space in what some have called the greatest corporate turnaround in history.”Foote — who worked with Harrison for 11 years at CN Rail and joined him at CSX in mid-2017 — said Harrison’s positive influence on CSX’s performance would continue without him.“I believe that the battleship has turned … Because the team has implemented a foundation consistent with Hunter’s vision, I do not see any reason to diminish our expectations concerning the pace and magnitude of our future progress,” he said in a statement on Dec. 14.Luc Jobin, the current CEO of CN Rail, offered his condolences to Harrison’s family and paid tribute to the railway executive.“Hunter was a giant of the railway industry for decades and a transformative figure at CN,” Jobin said in a statement issued Saturday.— By Dan Healing in Calgarylast_img read more

Tata Sponge Iron gets board approval for name change, to shift registered office to Bengal

Posted on by

first_imgKolkata: Tata Sponge Iron, a 54.5 per cent subsidiary company of Tata Steel, said on Thursday that its board has approved shifting of the company’s registered office from Odisha to West Bengal and changing its name to “Tata Steel Long Products Limited”. Incidentally, the company has made this move of shifting its registered office along with changing its name after it had completed acquisition of the steel business of Kolkata-based Usha Martin Ltd (UML) earlier this month with pending transfer some of the assets including mines and certain land parcels. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaIn a regulatory filing, Tata Sponge Iron said its board on Thursday “approved the shifting of the registered office of the company to West Bengal, subject to the approval of the members of the company and other regulatory authorities, as may be applicable and consequent amendment in the Registered Office clause of the Memorandum of Association”. The company’s 36th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of its members is scheduled to take place on July 15 at Joda in Odisha’s Keonjhar district. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highway The company, in the filing, also said its board approved the change in its name to “Tata Steel Long Products Limited” or such other name, as may be approved by the Registrar of Companies, subject to the approval of the members of the company and other regulatory authorities, as may be applicable and consequent amendment in name clause of Memorandum of Association. Notably, Tata Sponge Iron completed the acquisition of the steel business of UML on April 9 with payment of cash consideration of Rs 3468.63 crore (after adjustments for negative working capital and hold backs, pending transfer of some assets including mines and certain land parcels). UML’s steel business includes one-million-tonne steel alloy manufacturing plant near Jamshedpur in Jharkhand, an operative iron ore mine, a coal mine under development and captive power plants. Shifting of Tata Sponge Iron’s registered office from Odisha to West Bengal would be a significant development for the Trinamool Congress-ruled state. After Tata Global Beverages, Tata Metaliks and Tinplate Company of India (TCIL), it would be a new entrant of the list of Tata companies whose registered office would be in Bengal. Tata Steel, in September last year, had executed definitive agreements with the Kolkata-based UML for the acquisition of the latter’s steel business.Tata Sponge Iron’s net profit for the fourth quarter ended March 31 stood at Rs 24.39 crore, down 47.76 per cent year-on-year and its revenue from operations, during the March quarter this fiscal grew 4.34 per cent year-on-year at Rs 254.07 crore.last_img read more

Credit: Sheridan Hendrix | Oller ReporterOhio State sophomore wide receiver Binjimen Victor has emerged as one of the top threats for quarterback J.T. Barrett. He has caught six passes for 124 yards and a pair of touchdowns over the past two games.During Tuesday’s Big Ten coaches teleconference, head coach Urban Meyer said Victor has plenty of potential still left to reach and the 6-foot-4 wideout is continuing his ascendence.“We’re not even scratching the surface of his ability level. He’s got so much more left,” Meyer said. “We haven’t even seen near the ceiling of what he has, ability-wise. A great young man that’s just working at learning how to work all the time and go all the time. He’s a very talented guy.”Meyer drew comparisons between the jump-ball ability of Victor to a pair of past Ohio State wideouts.“Cris Carter, years and years and years ago, when we were here together,” Meyer said. “You’ve got [Michael] Thomas was good, really good at going up and getting the ball, but [Victor is just] sheer size and wingspan … and he’s got great ball skills.”Nebraska head coach Mike Riley previewed the upcoming matchup against the Buckeyes during his segment during the teleconference. He said his team is ready for the challenge of hosting Ohio State, but he is not sure how much of an impact home-field advantage will have.“It’s good to play at home for us, but you know, this is a team with a veteran quarterback that is hitting on all cylinders, very talented, well-coached and so, it is a particular challenge and it’ll be however good for our team,” Riley said. “We played a good team last week and got beat by Wisconsin and so this will be another step up and another great group of athletes and a great challenge for the Huskers.”Here are some additional notes from the teleconference:Meyer on the kickoff specialist: “We have trouble kicking it through the end zone, too. No, if it was that simple I’d [have them kick touchbacks]. It’s more complicated than that, but absolutely we’re always constantly — you don’t fit a square peg in a round hole, you do what you can do. And we’re still figuring out what we can do.”Meyer on the right guard battle: “It’s wide open. There’s three people right now in the running for it. Malcolm Pridgeon, Matt Burrell and Demetrius Knox.”Meyer on the Big Ten’s targeting call on Denzel Ward: “Well, what you do is you turn [game video] in each week, and I’ll have a guy on our staff call the Big Ten officiating, and then report back was that you know on the field, it’s a snap judgment, but the replay official was in error. And so we’re going to reward Denzel Ward today at practice for a caused fumble and he should not have been ejected. And it was a mistake.”Meyer on if the Ward call had happened in a major game: “Oh concerned, irate, all the above. And it’s not the person on the field. Those are snap judgments, those are, you can’t, I just don’t understand how that happens. But that’s, that’s for the higher-ups to figure out. Yeah, of course. Concern is probably not strong enough.”Meyer on using a tight end as a fullback: “We’re always looking for ways to make things better. And we cited a couple offenses and obviously [offensive coordinators] Kevin Wilson and Ryan Day brought this to my attention of what I thought. We ran it 20 times in the game, so we’re still working on it, it’s a new play. And obviously, once you have a play, you have to build off the play-action pass and et cetera, but it was very effective and we’re going to continue it.” read more
