The two countries are both Portuguese-speaking, but as they are separated by more than 1,200 miles, contacts between them have been few up to now. But now young people from the dioceses of Lebombo, Niassa and Angola, gathered from Nov. 25-30 at the diocesan center in Maciene, in the Mozambique province of Gaza.Full article.

Airborne Oil & Gas secures 10km TCP Flowline contract in Africa

first_imgThe firm is producing the 10 km TCP Flowline to support the operator’s brownfield, tie-back development project in the same field and region Airborne Oil & Gas secures 10 km TCP Flowline contract in Africa. (Credit: Airborne Oil & Gas) Airborne Oil & Gas has been awarded its most significant flowlines contract to date which will see the world’s leading manufacturer of thermoplastic composite pipe (TCP) deliver a record 10 km length of its technology to a supermajor in West Africa.This is the second award for TCP Flowline from the E&P organisation and follows on from an earlier successful delivery of a 4 km product, manufactured by Airborne Oil & Gas last year. The Netherlands headquartered company is producing the 10 km TCP Flowline to support the operator’s brownfield, tie-back development project in the same field and region.This repeat contract cements TCP’s position as a robust and cost-effective pipeline solution, particularly where corrosion mitigation is a major driver for clients. TCP is a non-metallic, composite pipe which delivers high levels of corrosion and fatigue resistance and therefore a significantly extended service life.Airborne Oil & Gas’ TCP Flowlines has led to approximately 40% saving on installation costs compared to traditional alternatives. The absence of corrosion has also resulted in further operational cost savings and safety related efficiencies for operators.Martin van Onna, CCO at Airborne Oil & Gas said: “The 10 km order for our TCP Flowline is a landmark moment in our company’s history, particularly given that it is a repeat order from a major operator and that it strengthens our order book on which to grow our business during 2020. Developing long-term relationships with clients fits in with our ongoing business plan and in tandem provides us with the opportunity to understand what is required, develop the best TCP solutions and support over multiple projects.”The total installed cost of TCP has proved to offer significant benefits to the operator’s pipeline replacement projects, particularly for water injection lines which often suffer from corrosion. In addition, in support of the industry’s focus on carbon reduction, TCP provides a significantly lower CO2 footprint for the pipelines.Paul McCafferty, Vice President Europe & Africa at Airborne Oil & Gas, added: “The award of this TCP Flowline project from an important client demonstrates the industry’s growing confidence in our solution, and the value added benefit TCP offers to their projects, particularly where existing field support vessels can be utilised for installation. Once again confirming that TCP offers no corrosion at lower cost.”Airborne Oil & Gas is exhibiting at Subsea Expo 2020 at the P&J Live venue in Aberdeen (11th – 13th Feb), and can be located at stand 71.

Stop the Week: online

first_imgThis week’s round-up is inadvertently animal-themed as bears and birds terrorise the bakery world. Bearing up after theftWe always thought that leaving the last one of something on a plate was a very British thing to do. How many times have you seen one olive, or one roll left as everybody is just too ruddy polite to take the last one?Apparently, the same affliction affects Canadian bears. Clearly the season of gorging is upon us as a bear broke into a bakery in Lyons, Colorado by smashing a window and climbing onto the oven. He proceeded to eat 24 pies, as well as bags of ingredients.You may assume he’d guzzle anything on offer, but it turns out he saved some for the next hungry customer. Mikaela Lehnert, daughter of the owner, told The Guardian: “He went for the apple and the cherry, but left behind the strawberry rhubarb, so he was a picky little guy.”As well as being polite and thoughtful, the bear’s midnight snack has caused much welcome publicity for the bakery, and business has boomed since, so there are no hard feelings should he want to come back.Note: It is unlikely that this is the same bear mentioned above.Greedy gullWould you consider the theft of your food a crime? Could you blame a man for reporting such a theft to the police?It turns out you can – when the criminal in question is a seagull. A peckish man caused widespread derision this week after logging a call to the police to complain about the bird. Just as he was launching into a full blow-by-blow account of the greedy gull’s scavenge attempt, the operator sharply cut him off with: “Yes, but what does this have to do with the police?”Maybe this is a valid query – who IS policing the animals? What do you do if you are chased by a badger or attacked by a ram?During a 24-hour tweetathon by Avon and Somerset Police, 41 calls deemed of “inappropriate” substance for 999 were recorded. Other examples included someone complaining of a tight taxi seatbelt offering no leeway and someone else who had been splashed by a puddle.On balance, the man with the seagull issue was making a fair point. Note: It is odd how the bird is scarier than the bear.Cat loaf loveBritish Baker purred with delight when we came across these adorable cat-shaped loaves. Admittedly, the painted-on eyes, nose and mouth were essential to recognising what would otherwise be a lumpy loaf as a cat – but adorable all the same.The loaves have cat ears added, with painted yet edible cat faces.Creator Lou, from Lou Lou P’s Delights, said: “The inspiration behind Cat Loaf is my elderly cat Marble. Marble is now 20 years old and is almost completely blind, yet she still remains content and packed full of spirit. I adore the expression ‘Cat Loaf’, that pose a kitty takes when she folds under her paws, perfectly mimicking a nice big bloomer.”last_img read more

Fr. Jim Martin to offer talk on LGBT community and church

first_imgCampus Ministry, the Gender Relations Center (GRC) and the Center for Social Concerns will co-sponsor a lecture delivered by live video Monday night. Fr. Jim Martin will discuss his book “Building A Bridge: How the Catholic Church and the LGBT Community Can Enter into a Relationship of Respect, Compassion and Sensitivity.” The lecture starts at 6 p.m. in DeBartolo Hall room 101, and Martin will answer questions until 10 p.m.One of the organizers for the event, Fr. Joe Corpora from Campus Ministry, said he wanted to bring Fr. Martin’s lecture to campus to spark a discussion about how students can identify as LGBT and be members of the Church.“The way I began this whole thing at Notre Dame is that I kept running into students who were totally of the Church, had left the Church,” Corpora said. “But then I would run into other students who were on the way out or maybe quietly out but really still wanted to be Catholic. And I thought, ‘Well if they come out and leave the Church, then who’s going to be left for the Church?’”After reading Martin’s book, Corpora said he had a mutual friend introduce him to Martin, so he could ask about giving the talk.“It’s the most tame book you’re going to read,” he said. “All it’s trying to say is how the Church and a community — namely the LGBT community — might each learn to respect and value each other,” Corpora said. “I thought it’s important that we offer something for students — whoever they happen to be — to think about this.”Corpora said he received some pushback from individuals about the talk, but not from the Notre Dame community.“I will talk with anybody,” Corpora said. “But this borders on being hateful, the way the email is written: ‘We are calling for the immediate rescinding of this invitation, and this priest does nothing but promote animalistic urges inside of humans,’ which is simply not true.”Corpora said Martin’s message aligns with Church teaching.“First of all, he’s not promoting homosexuality,” he said. “Second of all, he’s not saying not to be chaste.”Corpora said a planning committee, which included individuals from the GRC and Campus Ministry, as well as four students, helped to coordinate the event.Sophomore Francesca Denegri, a member of the planning committee, said she thinks it’s important for Notre Dame to invite a speaker who will address this topic.“A lot of times, students have criticized how Notre Dame kind of isolates the LGBTQ community, but this is such a leap in actually opening up the conversation … and not just hiding behind it,” Denegri said.After the lecture, attendees will be given a piece of paper with a prayer on one side and resources such as the GRC and PrismND on the other. Two follow-up sessions will also be offered the following week for students who may want to discuss the topic further, Corpora said.Corpora said he hopes the lecture will open the conversation on campus about the relationship between the LGBT community and the Church.“If you don’t have the conversation, the Church loses, and so does the LGBT community,” he said. “It’s like everyone loses, so let’s have a conversation, at least to talk with each other. I hope it will provoke more discussion at Notre Dame on a topic that’s not going to go away, either in the world or in the Church.”Tags: Building a Bridge, Campus Ministry, Center for Social Concerns, Fr.
