The partnership with Zamil makes perfect sense; both companies bring their own unique strengths to create a strong client proposition. We have seen an increase in potential work opportunities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and we expect this to continue going forward. The partnership is the first step in our strategy to increase our presence and contribution in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.”Sufyan Al Zamil, Zamil Offshore President, said, “The partnership is strategic to Zamil Offshore as we continue to diversify our service offerings to our clients.

Silverstone, United Kingdom | AFP | Sebastian Vettel warned Ferrari on Friday his team needs to take a ‘significant step’ if they are to mount a challenge to Mercedes at this weekend’s British Grand Prix.The four-time world champion finished fourth behind pace-setting Valtteri Bottas, the Finn’s Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton and third-placed Charles Leclerc in the second Ferrari.“I’m not entirely happy,” said Vettel.“It was a tricky afternoon. We tried a couple of things.“Now we need to see what of the stuff we tried we keep and what we dismiss. And, hopefully, tomorrow we’ll take a significant step. FILE PHOTO: Ferrari “Mercedes looked very, very fast and are the ones to beat so we’ll see where we are tomorrow. The car was quite nervous,” he added.Frenchman Leclerc, who was faster than Vettel in both the morning and afternoon sessions, said Mercedes were emphatically faster than Ferrari.“To be honest, on my side, I expected Mercedes to be the team to beat this weekend and they confirmed that today — that they are very, very quick in race pace,” he said.“We need to work. We struggled a lot on race runs and a bit less in qualifying runs, but we still have to find pace,” he added. Share on: WhatsApp
Despite some pretty tough fishing conditions, a good number of halibut were landed out of Eureka earlier this week. On Monday, only a couple boats made it across a very nasty bar. Gary Blasi of Full Throttle Sport Fishing and Tim Klassen of Reel Steel Sport Fishing each stuck it out and landed two and three halibut, respectively. A few more boats made it out on Tuesday, and most of them landed at least one halibut. “Conditions are definitely challenging right now — the current is absolutely …
Even though I haven’t coached this century, except for coaching my boys to a bronze medal at 2014 Western Canadian U18 Ball Hockey Championships, I still have some coaching habits.I always like to watch a game a second time the next day. When Todd McLellan coached the Sharks, he allowed me to join him the next morning to watch the game with the coaches. I loved that; I didn’t love waking up at 5:30 to do it though. Even to this day as a broadcaster, I will re-watch the game I called the night …
Spot-fixing allegations against three Pakistan players and the Future Tours Programme from 2012 to 2020 are the main agenda items that the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) executive board will discuss at its two-day meet, beginning in Dubai on Tuesday.Test captain Salman Butt, Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif were provisionally suspended by the ICC after allegations surfaced that the two pacers took bribes for bowling deliberate no-balls during the Lord’s Test against England, while Butt acted as the facilitator.”The ICC board, which has a zero-tolerance approach to corruption in cricket, will be updated on the spot-fixing allegations against three Pakistan players during a recent tour to England,” an ICC release said.”In accordance with the provision of the code, all three have appealed that provisional suspension and the independent hearing will take place in Doha, Qatar, on 30 and 31 October and will be chaired by the head of the ICC code of conduct commission, Michael Beloff, QC,” it added.The board will also consider the recommendations from the ICC chief executives’ committee (CEC), which met in Cape Town last month.These recommendations seek to give context and content for international cricket within the Future Tours Programme (FTP) after 2012 and also to consider future ICC events. According to the ICC, the board will consider a lot of the recommendations including that the FTP should consist of a Test league to provide context for all Test matches.The league would determine the top four teams to qualify for an ICC Test play-off.The other recommendations include that the play-off should be held once every four years to determine the Test champion team with a request to hold the first such playoff in 2013.advertisementAnother recommendation is that the FTP should also consist of a One-Day International league, the first to run from April 2011 until April 2014, culminating in the crowning of an ODI league champion.This would run separate to the ICC Cricket World Cup. Another proposal sees the World Cup consisting of a 10-team format from 2015 and the World Twenty20 consisting of a 16-team format from 2012, with the women’s event continuing to run alongside.The board will also hear reports from the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) on cricket development in China while New Zealand Cricket, which has a principle partnership agreement with the United States Cricket Association, will report on progress in America.With inputs from PTI
A seat on the Committee decides whether a property is inscribed on the World Heritage List. Story Highlights Jamaica’s membership to the Committee will run until 2017. At the elections in Paris today (Tuesday), Jamaica received more votes than Angola for a seat. Jamaica has been elected to the World Heritage Committee of UNESCO, for the first time.At the elections in Paris today (Tuesday), Jamaica received more votes than Angola for a seat on the important Committee which decides whether a property is inscribed on the World Heritage List.The Minister of Youth and Culture the Honourable Lisa Lisa Hanna, MP – who led the lobby for support of Jamaica’s candidacy for membership of the Committee – described today’s vote as historic, important and well deserved.Minister Hanna said:“I am elated that we won our bid for membership of the World Heritage Committee. It was a difficult lobby, but we never relented as a seat at this table has exponential benefits to our country for the future as we are positioning culture as a pillar for growth. So in that respect, we can say mission accomplished.“But the work to promote and protect our heritage continues. As a member of the World Heritage Committee, Jamaica will represent the interests of Small Island Developing States that are not very well represented – or in our case, not represented at all – on the list of World Heritage Sites.”The election to the Committee for the first time was due to the consistent lobbying efforts of the Jamaican Embassy in Brussels, the Jamaica National Commission for UNESCO, the Ministry of Youth and Culture and Minister Hanna’s overtures at the recent UNESCO General Conference.Jamaica’s membership to the Committee will run until 2017. The country will be represented by Mr Vivian Crawford and Dr Janice Lindsay. Other countries represented on the Committee are: Croatia, Finland, Kazakhstan, South Korea, Lebanon, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Vietnam and Turkey.Minister Hanna said “this is a historic day for our country as Jamaica has never had a property inscribed as a world heritage site despite our culture and heritage being revered by the globe.”She asked all Jamaicans to keep interested as the progress continues.Jamaica has applied for the Blue and John Crow Mountains to be inscribed on the World Heritage List and will begin preparing a dossier for Port Royal’s nomination to the List. Jamaica will also be putting a case for Reggae music to be inscribed on the Intangible Heritage List.
