The Port of Valencia has set sights on building a container terminal of the future, capable of handling ultra large containerships of up to 24,000 TEU.The port’s board of directors has given the green light to the project which paves the way for calling of the tender for the construction and operation of the facility, which once built would be the fourth and largest container terminal at the port.The port’s existing three terminals are Noatum Terminal, MSC Valencia Terminal and APM Terminals.The initiative is in line with the anticipated container traffic growth at the port of Valencia by 2050.The project has been described as a greenfield development, suitable for the concept of an automated terminal, as the port insists the terminal would have to be equipped with the latest technology for sustainable operations.Anther prerequisite is excellent connectivity to the import/export and transit markets, enabling the terminal to position itself within the mixed port market.The port authority said it would provide the future concession holder with a berthing line of up to 1,970 m long with a draft of 20 metres alongside and throughout the dock, an adjacent compacted yard of some 137 hectares, as well as a maritime access channel with a draft of 22.50 m.The quay would be granted under a concession of 35 years for partial concession occupancy bids, with the possibility of extension up to 50 years. Another option is a 50-year long concession for bids that envisage full occupation of the quay and the adjacent area necessary for the proposed terminal.The terminal must cover a minimum of 800 m. of berthing line and 49 hectares, and has to be at least semi-automated. The contract for construction of the terminal is expected to be awarded in July 2019.World Maritime News Staff
By Frederick HalleyLAST year Royal Canadian Masters (RCM) created history, becoming the first team from Canada to win a softball title in or out of the country when they captured the Pro Cup (Over-50) title, played as part of the New York Softball Cricket League (NYSCL) annual Independence Cup.Last Sunday, the feat was repeated by the Toronto Blizzards, who in a masterful display defeated New York Hustlers by seven runs in a pulsating final, played at Seaview Park, Canarsie, Brooklyn, New York.Urged on by a contingent from across the border and facing their toughest opponents in the final, the players from the land of the Maple Leaf ensured that their ardent fans received a 152nd Independence anniversary gift.MVP Shiv Seeram collects his award from a sponsor.Playing unbeaten in the three-day tournament, Toronto Blizzards were indebted to a marvellous 118-run second-wicket partnership between former Canadian international player Desmond Chumney (80) and former Guyana batsman Jaimini Singh (36), after they were rocked back at 24 for two in the fourth over, losing the key wickets of skipper Shiv Seeram (14) and Sunil Dhaniram (one), both former Guyana players.From thereon, it was the Chumney/Singh show, with the former being the aggressor, belting four fours and five towering sixes while Singh’s knock contained four fours.The entertaining and face-saving partnership was broken in the 17th over, Singh going caught off Linden Longhorne at 142 for three while Chumney departed shortly after, bowled by P. Beaton.The rest of the batting floundered as Toronto Blizzards were restricted to 162 for eight in the allotted 20 overs with Longhorne finishing with the impressive figures of three for 26 from his four overs. Two run-outs didn’t help the visitors’ cause.New York Hustlers started disastrously, losing L. Fraser (one), via run-out while the other opener N. Robertson (0) went caught-and-bowled by the wily Satrohan ‘Blade’ Balkarran in the first over as they slipped to two for two.The experienced Ken Sanichar (31) and Quayyam Farrouq (23) mounted a third-wicket recovery stand which yielded 60 runs, but once the two were separated, New York Hustlers slid to 65 for five in the 11th over.Longhorn, in a fine all-round display, rallied the lower-order almost singlehandedly, spanking an aggressive 46 (five fours), sharing an important 58-run sixth-wicket partnership with Ronald Evelyn (15 not out) as New York Hustlers fought their way back into the game.The home team was, however, undone by a hat-trick from Mike Kisten (three for 34) who grabbed two wickets with the fifth and sixth deliveries of his third over and one with the first ball of the fourth. Surprise package Mohan Harirar also chipped in with two in his first of two overs, finishing with two for 15.With 15 needed in the final over and only one wicket remaining, captain Seeram entrusted the over to his most experienced bowler in Balkarran who conceded six runs before last man Ashraf Ally failed to make his ground, attempting a second run as New York Hustlers were dismissed for 155 in 19.5 overs.The semi-final saw Toronto Blizzards win by 38 runs over NYSCL, reaching 192 for five in 20 overs and dismissing the home team for 154 in 19.1 overs. Seeram 59 (five fours), Chumney (38 not out) and Singh (28) were the principal scorers while Tony Fernandez spanked three fours and five sixes in his 62 for the losers.The consistent Seeram had earlier started the tournament in emphatic fashion, smashing six fours and five sixes in 84 and sharing a 159-run second-wicket stand with Sunil Dhaniram, whose 57 included six fours and four sixes, the two rolling back the years.Opponents Orlando Masters were left high and dry at 92 for five when their overs expired.Seeram, who totalled 212 runs in his five innings, the most by any player, was the obvious choice for the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award while Chumney copped the man-of-the-match for the final. The highest individual score (85) trophy went to Deochand Ramjattan of Rockaway Pro; most wickets (nine) to Langhorne of NY Hustlers; best bowling figures in a game (four for 10) to Ronald Evelyn of NY Hustlers while Mike Kisten of Blizzards received a monetary prize for his hat-trick.Toronto Blizzards owe their formation to businessman Nasrudeen Baksh, an ardent enthusiast and supporter of the Ontario Masters Softball Cricket Clubs (OMSCC) and were managed by Azeem Khan who is also the OMSCC president.
Published on October 29, 2017 at 11:14 pm Contact Michael: firstname.lastname@example.org | @MikeJMcCleary Off a wide intersection, a large sign reading “Flamingo Bowl” in neon script rises higher than any of the neighboring structures in front of a gray building off Oswego Road. About 100 yards from the Dunkin’ Donuts to its left and with trees the only neighbor to its right, the facility sits silent enough so that the water flowing down a drain pipe is the predominant sound. Employees and guests sit on a picnic bench outside and greet passersby with quiet conversation and cigarette smoke.Inside the building, the tagline “A Future for the Sport” is draped in white block letter across the back wall. After years of being hosted in Las Vegas, the Professional Bowling Association’s United States Open tournament made the move to Flamingo Bowl in Liverpool this year. Tom Clark, the commissioner and CEO of the PBA, as well as a longtime Syracuse fan, says the close proximity to Syracuse is what the sport needs.“The biggest thing that I want and need to bring to bowling is rabid, avid fans,” Clark said. “Syracuse basketball has that.”In Clark’s office in Milwaukee, he said, the walls tell the story of his life growing up in Syracuse. A framed copy of the Syracuse Post-Standard from 2003 with the “Believe It” headline following SU’s national title win hangs on the wall. A picture of Clark’s son, Rory — who was almost named Carmelo, but wasn’t after Clark lost an argument with his wife — with former Syracuse guard Malachi Richardson and a large portrait of Clark with SU head coach Jim Boeheim stand front and center in the office.Clark, at the Battle for Atlantis in 2015, walked over with his son to take a photo with current-Orange assistant coach and former player Gerry McNamara. He still said he was a “geek” as he described the year to McNamara, when Syracuse won the title and Clark’s son was born.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“That was a good year,” McNamara said to Clark.Less easy to spot is his long connection to bowling. His father was a bowler, so Clark was around it for most of his life. But, PBA memorabilia is few and far between in comparison to his Orange collection. Clark loves the city he grew up in, and he goes back numerous times throughout the year to watch Syracuse games.“My number one interest in life is Syracuse basketball,” Clark said. “Jim Boeheim, other than my family, has had the most influence on my life. (I’m) not even joking.”Over the next year, Syracuse bowling centers will host three major events. The biggest is the United States Bowling Conference Open Championships, the world’s largest amateur bowling competition, which will bring more than 50,000 bowlers to the greater-Syracuse area, Clark said.Gavin Liddell | Contributing PhotographerWhen Clark was growing up, there were about 9 million league bowlers nationwide that competed in tournaments compared to about five million today, he said. Bowling alleys across the country, as well as in Syracuse, are vanishing. Most of his favorite bowling centers growing up, where the PBA used to host events, are long gone.“All of us involved with bowling,” Clark said, “we’re trying to bring it back.”Flamingo Bowl may be the end of Clark’s search for a hub of the PBA.Inside, the alley offers nothing surprising. An all-black carpet with confetti-like images surround the facility. To the left as one walks in, the front desk worker stands with the collection of bowling shoes behind him. To the right, a concession stand worker sits to the side, taking a break between orders. Bowlers and fans alike slurp from white Styrofoam cups that they ordered at the front.A public address announcer talking in a soft voice tells the bowlers to finish their warmups. One by one, each bowler grabs their suitcase-like bowling ball totes and drags them over to the right side of the alley, setting up in their starting positions. A small crowd on the left side of the viewing area gets up and walks parallel to the contestants. Despite the small crowd, the narrow inside of the venue makes moving around difficult. People pressed their backs against the wall to allow bowlers to walk by.After the bowlers are set, the announcer reads from a set of requests for audience etiquette, asking for no stray noises or encroachment on the competitor’s’ space. The bowlers start to create conversation.“Round two?” one bowler asked another sitting on the bench behind the racks of bowling balls. Leaning back on the bench, the second bowler didn’t offer a reply.“I’ll wake you up for the third,” the first bowler said.When the announcer finally started the round, a spattering of applause was followed by nothing but the sound of balls hitting pins. In what could have easily gone unnoticed, the start of the match served as the commencement of the biggest bowling event in Syracuse in almost two decades.For over four hours, bowlers moved from one lane to another, racking up points that displayed on a small projector on the right side of the alley. By the second hour, the crowd grew larger and applause broke out more frequently.Gavin Liddell | Contributing PhotographerBowlers took turns rolling the ball with the same motion and doing their same strut back to the benches. Competitors rarely showed any emotion with their faces, as the only thing that differentiated a good frame from a bad one was the extension of the hand to their fellow bowlers giving a silent congratulation. Liz Johnson, the field’s only female competitor, opted for a fist-bump.At one point, Walter Ray Williams Jr. left his spot in the 23rd lane and approached the front desk to notify the workers that the pin-clearing machine stopped working. The front desk operator got the machine up and running and the crowd behind the lane unleashed what was perhaps the loudest applause of the round.The tournament, despite the informal appearance, could have a sizable impact for both the PBA and Flamingo Bowl, Clark said.Inside, a few kids walked around holding bowling pins adorned with autographs from bowlers. A man introduced himself to “his hero.” A small child wearing a jersey that read “USBC youth” talked with a bowler between frames. In the bar behind the lanes, people ordered drinks and sat close to the window to watch the bowlers. The nationally televised football game between No. 2 Penn State at No. 6 Ohio State went unwatched behind their backs.“We’ve hosted tournaments like this in the past,” said Tricia Zinter, general manager of Flamingo Bowl. “But nothing this big.”It was nothing but a string of luck that landed the Liverpool venue as the host. Mike McCracken, the owner of Flamingo Bowl, said he ran into Chad Murphy, executive director of the United States bowling conference, at lunch one day. They spoke about the Las Vegas contract’s end and McCracken convinced Murphy to move the tournament to the East Coast.“They like this area,” McCracken said. “There’s a high concentration of bowlers within a five hour drive.”Andy Mendes | Digital Design EditorSyracuse remains a good location for bowling because of the weather, Zinter said, and that “80 percent” of the time, it’s necessary to take all activities inside. So, as an indoor sport, people could turn to bowling when it is too cold to be outside. Clark himself scoffs at people who say that the weather makes it difficult to host a tournament in central New York.“You have to get from your car to the front door,” Clark said. “That takes two minutes.”At Flamingo Bowl, the championship trophy, about 3 feet tall and crowned with a bronze eagle, sits unguarded by nothing more than a single rope barrier. The names of all the previous winners are written on the blue poster next to the trophy and the word “Champion” is printed plainly on the front plaque of the trophy. When the eventual winner, which gets decided on Wednesday, accepts the trophy, they will have done it in front of a Syracuse crowd on bowling’s biggest stage.Once the round ended, all the bowlers filed out and walked alongside members of the audience, making conversation and smiling wide.The monitors switched from the game scores to the home screen. The U.S. Open logo appeared in big lettering across the middle of the screen. In the bottom right corner, the words “Now at Flamingo Bowl!” were typed so small they were hardly visible to the naked eye.Flamingo Bowl was the first central New York venue to host this tournament in years, but Clark doesn’t expect it to be the last. He thinks fans will continue to help grow the sport.“I have confidence they’re going to be great fans,” Clark said. “In Syracuse, they will understand. There will be a level of respect combined with that energy…that will make Syracuse a great host for great bowling.“You get the best.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+

Sulley Muntari and Asamoah Gyan are set to be compensated by the Sports Ministry after their items were stolen from their hotel rooms while playing against Lesotho in a 2o14 World Cup qualifier last month.The Ghana Sports Newspaper has reported that the two players will be reimbursed for losing valuables in the course of duty.Gyan had his US$ 10,000 stolen and Muntari expensive jewellery was also taken away by the thief at the Maseru Sun Hotel while they were grinding out a 2-0 win last month.The CCTV footage at the hotel captured a man wearing a Black Stars track suit emerging from the hotel with the stolen items. “It was quite surprising because we were the only people on the hotel floor but in life anything can happen,” Ghana captain Gyan is quoted by Ghana Sports.“That notwithstanding, I must say thank you to the Ministry for the effort they made.”The authorities have assured us we will be compensated for whatever we lost whilst in the line of duty for Ghana.”
NHL free agency tracker 2019: Full list of signings, best available playersKessel’s 82 points last season (27 goals, 55 assists) tied for the second-most in a season for his career. He was traded to Arizona on June 29 with Dane Birks and a 2021 fourth-round draft pick for center Alex Galchenyuk and prospect Pierre-Olivier Joseph.”You never know you’re going to get traded, (but) you can always sense when your time maybe has come to an end,” Kessel said. “I had a great four years there (in Pittsburgh). But I’m really looking forward to the opportunity in Arizona, looking to prove myself again, show people what I’ve got. You always want to prove yourself and have a good year and have a big year, and hopefully we can do great things.” “I haven’t really got to have that in my career,” Kessel said. “I think it’s going to be great. I’m going to do whatever I can to help these guys win and help them improve. [If] the young guys have questions or anything they want to talk about, I’m there to talk about it. Try to get our team better and them better.”MORE: Phil Kessel has the world’s loneliest home theater”He’s going to accept the role of trying to help young guys, take the young guys out for dinner,” Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet, who coached Kessel in Pittsburgh, told Kimelman. “It’s a wider range of leadership for Phil coming here because it’s a different dynamic, a different team (than the Penguins). But I still want him to be who he is. I don’t want him to come in here with a hammer and say, ‘I’m going to lead these guys.’ I just need him to be a calming influence. Because I think he’s got some good hockey knowledge that can help the young guys.”The two-time Stanley Cup winner, three-time All-Star and 2007 Masterton Trophy winner said he plans to lead by example.”I’m not a rah-rah guy, to say the least,” Kessel told Kimelman. “I just want to be a good guy. Guys can relate to me, and I like to have fun. If they want to talk hockey, I like to talk hockey, too. But all in all, just enjoy ourselves first and foremost because if you enjoy yourself you can play your best. Be loose and be prepared to play.””Everyone leads in their own way, and Phil can be a leader in the sense of grabbing young players and talking to them about those situations, what he sees, how he creates offense, how he’s done it over a number of years, been one of the most successful guys in the league at doing that,” Arizona general manager John Chayka told Kimelman. “That was a big part of it. We wanted someone that has Phil’s mind for the game and can help our young players in that sense.” Phil Kessel is looking to contribute in new ways as he begins his tenure with the Arizona Coyotes.Kessel, who will turn 32 the day before Arizona begins its 2019-20 campaign, told NHL.com’s Adam Kimelman he is “looking forward to” taking on a leadership role with his new team.

England international Nick Marsh raced up the leaderboard and forced a play-off in the Portuguese international amateur championship with a final round of six-under 66 at the Montado resort.It was the low round of the championship and it shot him from a share of ninth place, after three rounds, to a tie with Italy’s Renato Paratore on seven-under par after the regulation 72 holes.However, Marsh’s impressive challenge ended on the first play-off hole, where both players were bunkered beside the green and the Italian got up and down to win the title.Marsh, from Huddersfield, reported to his Twitter followers: “Lost in a play-off unfortunately …. Still finished 2nd. Had a great week!!”The 19-year-old was one-under par at the start of the final round and five shots off the lead, held then by Sweden’s Marcus Kinhult. The Yorkshireman charged through the field with four birdies on the front nine, before slipping back with bogeys on the 10th and 11th. But he was quickly back on the birdie trail, playing the remaining seven holes in four-under to set the tournament target on seven-under.It was matched by Paratore, who was playing in the final group, and who scored two-under 70 to take his place in the play-off – en route to the title.Marsh, who helped England win the Home Internationals at Ganton last summer, is clearly on form in 2014, having already secured a top ten finish in the South American amateur.Two other English players finished in the top ten in the Portuguese championship: Ashley Chesters, the European champion from Hawkstone Park in Shropshire & Herefordshire, tied fifth on three-under; and Luke Johnson (King’s Lynn, Norfolk) shared seventh place on two-under. 15 Feb 2014 Marsh forces play-off in Portuguese championship
