They are designed for Finland’s conditions and will replace the Rauma-class fast-attack missile boats and Hämeenmaa-class minelayers that will reach the end of their life-cycle by the mid-2020s. The Squadron 2020 project According to MAN, 175D is also an eco-friendly engine, being designed from the outset with compliance to the latest, as well as future, exhaust-gas-emission requirements and utilises a compact and flexible SCR system, which enables vessel designers to optimise space on board to the maximum. Categories: The MAN 175D GenSets bound for Finland have a number of technical features such as double-elastic seating, noise enclosures for silent operation. What is more, MAN 175D is said to be the only high-speed navy GenSet able to reach that power level with 12 cylinders. View post tag: Rauma Marine Constructions The first test-runs at sea are already scheduled for 2024 with all vessels projected for completion by 2028. As informed, each of the four ships will be equipped with four MAN 12V175D-MEL GenSets with a total output of 7,700 kW.

Phish Debuts ‘A Day In The Life’ Cover At Red Rocks, On This Day In 1995

first_imgWhile Phish has settled into Dick’s Sporting Goods Park for their annual Colorado visits, there was a time in the mid-’90s when the band played the beloved Red Rocks Amphitheatre every year. Making their debut at the storied venue in 1993, Phish played the venue nine times between 1993 and 1996, plus four more times in 2009. Between the magic of Red Rocks and of a Phish show, especially during the 1990s, these performances are the stuff of legends.Our Phishtory piece for the day takes phans back to 1995, when Phish wrapped up a two-night run on this day. After laying down a solid show on night one, Phish took things to the next level with a fun performance on June 10th. Any show that opens with “Makisupa Policeman” has our attention, especially when that segues into a crunchy “Llama.”The first set featured a “Prince Caspian > It’s Ice > Free” combination, before going into a rare first-set “You Enjoy Myself” that somehow found its way into a “Hold Your Head Up” segment with a vocal jam. From there, drummer Jon Fishman took the lead on a cover of “Lonesome Cowboy Bill,” a full three years before Phish would perform the Velvet Underground album in its entirety.The second set heated up with some great jams, including a rockin’ “Mike’s Song > I Am Hydrogen > Weekapaug Groove” for the faithful. The biggest surprise of the night, however, came in the encore, when the band debuted their version of The Beatles’ “A Day In The Life.” The Beatles classic has become something of a live staple for Phish, popping up in setlists a full 65 more times throughout their career. That this show featured the debut surely cements itself in the Phish history books.Listen to the full show streaming below.[Audio: fromtheaquarium]Setlist: Phish | Red Rocks Amphitheatre | Morrison, CO | 6/10/1995Set 1: Makisupa Policeman -> Llama, Prince Caspian > It’s Ice > Free, Rift, You Enjoy Myself -> Hold Your Head Up[1] > Lonesome Cowboy Bill > Hold Your Head Up, Suzy GreenbergSet 2: Maze, Fee[2] > Uncle Pen, Mike’s Song > I Am Hydrogen > Weekapaug Groove, Amazing Grace, Sample in a JarEncore: A Day in the Life[3][1] Vocal jam.[2] Trey sang verses through megaphone.[3] Phish debut.Notes: This show marked the first Phish performance of A Day in the Life.

Swedish House Mafia Reunites After 5 Years For Surprise Set At Ultra 2018 [Full Show Video]

first_img[Video: Breathe Paradise] On Sunday, March 25th, at around 10 p.m., Swedish House Mafia surprised fans at Ultra Music Festival in Miami by reuniting for the first time in five years. The house music supergroup composed of Axwell, Steve Angello, and Sebastian Ingrosso was not advertised as being on the bill (Axwell /\ Ingrosso was), though for months people have speculated that the group might reunite in celebration of the legendary EDM festival’s 20th anniversary. The reunion landed nearly five years to the day after the group’s final farewell tour performance, which also took place at Ultra Music Festival.The trio’s festival-closing set ran for around fifty minutes and included a number of the group’s popular hits including “Miami 2 Ibiza”, “Save the World”, “Greyhound, and “One”. As noted by Billboard, “The famous trio emerged from the darkness after a 30-minute production break. “I am Axwell, I am Sebastian Ingrosso, and I am Steve Angello,” they said into the mics, “and Miami, tonight we go by Swedish House Mafia.”When asked why they chose this moment to reunite, they simply said ‘it was time.’” However, what the future holds for Swedish House Mafia is somewhat unclear, given that the group’s future plans are still hazy—despite this, during the show at Ultra, Axwell boldly declared that the performance wasn’t a one-off incident but rather “This time, it’s for life.” Swedish House Mafia At Ultra Music Festival 2018last_img read more

6 steps to prepare for a credit card breach

first_img continue reading » It’s the nightmare scenario: A ex-Amazon employee is arrested for stealing credit card application data for 106 million people, plus 140,000 Social Security numbers and 80,000 bank account numbers — and then brags about it online.When it happened to Capital One, the organization braced for the onslaught of media coverage and concerned cardholders. The bank is expected to incur $100-to-$150 million in breach-related costs for customer notifications, credit monitoring, technology costs, and legal support. It followed textbook crisis communications with an announcement and a detailed set of FAQs. Capital One, cloud vendor Amazon, and tech developer site GitHub are all facing lawsuits in the wake of the breach.These are well-known companies, but in reality, cardholders don’t care whether an incident is a high-profile breach or an isolated attack. They expect immediate action, fast resolution, and clear communications. According to the experts at Wright-Patt Credit Union ($4.6B, Beavercreek, OH), the best way to respond to a card breach is to be prepared before it happens. Here, they share best practices for handling card breaches and helping members avoid them. 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Rising coronavirus cases in 39 US states cast shadow over July 4 celebrations

first_imgRising coronavirus cases in 39 US states cast a shadow over the nation’s Fourth of July celebrations as health experts worried that holiday parties will cause a further spike in infections that could overwhelm hospitals.After towns and cities across the country canceled annual fireworks displays to avoid large crowds gathering, many Americans launched bottle rockets and roman candles from streets and suburban backyards to commemorate Independence Day.In the first four days of July alone, 15 states have reported record increases in new cases of COVID-19, which has infected nearly 3 million Americans and killed about 130,000, according to a Reuters tally. During an Independence Day speech at the White House on Saturday, US President Donald Trump claimed without evidence that 99% of coronavirus cases in the United States were “totally harmless.”In Texas alone, the number of COVID-19 patients currently hospitalized rose to a record 7,890 on Saturday compared with 3,247 just two weeks ago. The Democratic mayor of Austin, Texas, warned during an interview with CNN that his city’s hospitals could reach capacity in two weeks and run out of intensive care unit (ICU) beds in 10 days.Trump, a Republican, has refused to wear a mask in public and has been reluctant to encourage Americans to do so, saying it was a personal choice. A July 4 celebration he attended at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota was “mask-optional” and had no social distancing.Mixed messaging from governments has been a major factor in people not following coronavirus mitigation recommendations in Miami Beach, said its Democratic mayor, Dan Gelber.Miami Beach’s coronavirus hospitalizations have doubled in the last 14 days and hospitals now have 158 people on ventilators, up from 64 two weeks ago, he told CNN.”We’re spreading it because of this incredible activity, and too many people obviously are not taking seriously all of these admonishments to socially distance to wear masks,” he said. Florida’s cases have risen by over 10,000 for three out of the last four days, including climbing by 10,059 on Sunday, surpassing the highest daily tally reported by any European country during the height of the coronavirus outbreak there. Cases are also soaring in Arizona, California and Texas and trending upwards in Midwest states that once had infections declining such as Iowa, Ohio and Michigan.Despite the high number of infections in the state, sun seekers gathered at Clearwater Beach, Florida, which remained open on Independence Day.In Phoenix, Arizona, people gathered without masks or social distancing to listen to a speaker at a rally against restrictions to prevent the spread of the virus. Many in the crowd wore red, white and blue, and some held signs saying, “Capitalism makes sense. Socialism doesn’t. Go Trump 2020.””We opened way too early in Arizona,” Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego said on ABC. She said the city was in a “crisis related to testing,” with people waiting in eight-hour lines in their cars to find out if they were infected.center_img Topics :last_img read more
