  • Crown Estate puts Scotland’s offshore data online

    first_imgThe manager of the seabed in Scotland, Crown Estate Scotland, has made offshore spatial data relating to the organization’s offshore assets freely available for the first time.The data covers infrastructure projects and undersea cabling and can be used by a range of organizations from oil and gas and renewable energy companies to consultancies and educational institutes.Featured on the Crown Estate Scotland website, the data reveals the geographic extent and some attribute information for all the organization’s offshore legal agreements, the organization said.An interactive map showing the organization’s live agreements by sector ranging from aquaculture sites to various coastal activities, enables visitors to pan across Scotland to view the variety of activities in each locale.John Robertson, Senior Energy Manager at Crown Estate Scotland said: “As a land and asset manager, Crown Estate Scotland has a responsibility to maintain authoritative records about the status and change of the land and seabed we manage. We also want to work openly and transparently.“With a number of both large scale and smaller projects already in Scottish waters, this will give companies working in the sector the chance to scope out other opportunities to work with Crown Estate Scotland and our partners.”Crown Estate Scotland, which was formed in April 2017, is responsible for around half the foreshore around Scotland, leasing of virtually all seabed out to 12 nautical miles and the right to offshore renewable energy and gas and carbon storage out to 200 nautical miles.When it comes to tidal energy developments, Crown Estate Scotland’s predecessor organization, The Crown Estate, has invested nearly £10 million in the MeyGen tidal energy project, being developed by Atlantis Resources, to help unlock Scotland’s tidal energy potential, as part of a £50 million funding package with UK and Scottish Governments and Highlands and Islands Enterprise.Currently, Crown Estate Scotland offers the opportunity for technology developers to access seabed for wave and tidal current projects of up to 30MW.last_img read more

  • Cricket News Australia avoid 136-year low, Travis Head and Joe Burns slam centuries vs Sri Lanka

    first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Australia was reduced to 28/3 and it required a wonderful knock from Burns and Travis Head to restore the advantage for Tim Paine’s side. Burns was dropped on 34 by Dhananjaya de Silva off Dilruwan Perera and he made most of the chance. Heading into the lunch session, Australia made a tremendous fightback and Burns got good support from Head. The right-hander struck three fours in one over of Vishwa Fernando and he neared the milestone. Burns reached his century off Kasun Rajitha and the celebrations summed up the joy.Head also made great progress and he benefited from Dilruwan Perera’s drop off his own bowling and he made the bowler pay by slamming his maiden century with a drive through mid-off for a boundary. The partnership between Head and Burns decimated Sri Lanka and the duo notched up the 300-run partnership, the first time that an Australian batting partnership had registered a triple century stand ever since Steve Smith and Mitchell Marsh in the Perth Test against England.Sri Lanka continued to drop catches and concede easy runs but the 308-run stand was broken when Head missed a flick and was trapped in front by Fernando for 161. Burns continued to make great progress as Australia scored close to 400 runs in a day. The Manuka Oval in Canberra is hosting a Test for the first time. However, the venue has already provided Australia some great moments. New Delhi: The Australian cricket team have undergone a terrible time in Test cricket in the last one year. They have lost series to South Africa, Pakistan and India. In the four-Test series against India, they suffered losses in Adelaide and Melbourne as they suffered a loss against an Asian side for the first-time ever at home. Ever since the Pakistan series in the UAE, only one Australian scored a century and that was Usman Khawaja who scored 141 in the Dubai Test. In the home series against India, no Australian scored a century while in the first Test against Sri Lanka in Brisbane, the century drought continued. Ahead of the Test in Brisbane, Australia were in danger of breaching a 136-year low.The last time Australia went without a Test century on home soil over a summer of three or more Tests was way back in 1882-83 against England. However, the century drought ended in grand style as Joe Burns registered his fourth century in his 16th Test and it represented a good return for a player who has dropped frequently from the Test side. highlights Manuka Oval is hosting a Test match for the first time ever.Joe Burns and Travis Head shared a 303-run stand for the fourth wicket.Burns and Head became the first Australian batsmen to score tons at home in this season.last_img read more

  • Women’s basketball falls short in Washington road trip

    first_imgThis past weekend proved to be a difficult one for the Women of Troy, as the women’s basketball team traveled to the state of Washington only to drop two straight to Washington and Washington State. USC now stands at 10-5 with a subpar 1-3 record in conference play. “You never want to start conference this way,” senior guard Courtney Jaco said. “We wish we could have gotten a couple more wins, but we’re growing everyday and learning a little bit about ourselves.” USC’s road trip began on Friday in Seattle against No. 11 Washington. Despite an excellent performance from freshman guard Minyon Moore (18 points) and a major fourth quarter comeback spurred by Jaco (16 second-half points), the Huskies ultimately prevailed 77-67. Washington rode on the back of senior guard Kelsey Plum, a San Diego native, whose 34 points, five assists and five rebounds were instrumental in the team’s success. The 15-2 Huskies led for the entirety of the game. The Women of Troy searched for a more successful outing on Sunday, as they faced off against 8-8 Washington State in Pullman. Instead, they experienced a starkly uneven performance. Ending the first half with a 35-34 lead, USC scored just 22 second half points and went as long as four and a half minutes without scoring in the third quarter. The Cougars capitalized on USC’s offensive ineptitude on their way to a 74-57 win.“I just think we weren’t moving the ball well and sharing the ball like we were in the first half,” Jaco said, explaining her team’s second half struggles. “We found Kristen [Simon] a lot down low, and I think we got away from that coming out for the second half.” For standout junior forward Simon, it was a bittersweet game. On one hand, her team ended up with a dispiriting 17-point loss to a mid-tier conference foe. On the other, she set a new career high in points (25) to go along with nine rebounds, all while being hobbled with a recent ankle injury. “[Simon] was our motor the whole game,” Jaco said. “If it wasn’t for her, I don’t really know what we would have done. Honestly it was surprising because she sprained her ankle really badly on Friday so we didn’t know whether she was going to play or not. She came out and gave that performance and gave that fight and kind of inspired us.” USC was unable to find any consistent offense outside of Simon. No other starter scored more than 3 points, and overall, the junior accounted for more than 40 percent of her team’s total scoring output. One positive, however, was Ivana Jakubcova, the 6-foot-6 transfer from Kentucky who showed off her range with two late 3-pointers. She finished with a second-best nine points. The Women of Troy will have a few days to try to correct some of the offensive issues that plagued them over the weekend. This week, they host a dangerous Oregon team (11-5) on Friday and then No. 16 Oregon State on Sunday. The Beavers are undefeated so far in conference play and sit at 15-1 overall. “Hopeful,” Jaco said, describing the team’s mood after losing three straight conference games. “We’re still in the beginning of Pac-12 [play], so thankfully we have a lot more games to a go — a lot more basketball to be played. We’re just looking forward to the next opportunity.”last_img read more
