Forum Launches eROV Simulator Training

first_imgForum Subsea Technologies has launched the latest version of its VMAX simulator to integrate with its electric remotely operated vehicles (eROV).The XLe Spirit was the first vehicle to be launched from the new range last year and Forum has now added the eROV to its choice of vehicles within the simulator. The new eROV Hand Controller console can also be interfaced to VMAX to allow pilots to be trained in the use of the new console.The VMAX software is a 3D ROV simulation system which is used for the training and evaluation of ROV pilots. It can also be utilized by subsea engineering teams for modelling and verification of procedures involving intervention tasks for subsea equipment.Andy McAra, VMAX product director, said: “Following the launch of the XLe Spirit vehicle last year, we recognized the need to integrate the system into our existing VMAX software to provide both training and evaluation capabilities for our customers.“The demand for our 3D simulator technology is continuing to grow as the industry recognizes the value of an immersive learning experience. VMAX eliminates the need to deploy a physical vehicle for training purposes and allows pilots to interact with the eROV in a safe and controlled environment, providing increased efficiencies and reducing overall operational expenditure.”last_img read more

Fair Haven Approves Dunkin’ Application; Resident Files Lawsuit

first_imgA lawsuit filed in county court in late July by nearby resident Andrew Reger challenges the ruling made by the defendant Fair Haven Zoning Board. Also named in the lawsuit is Fair Haven Retail, LLC, owner of the River Road Shopping Center. Cole also said she fears patrons will park on the opposite side of the road and run across to get to the shopping center, which can put them in danger of being struck by a vehicle. “It might be time for Fair Haven to figure out what it wants to be because we thought we were going to be a small town,” a biker-and walker-friendly area, she said. “But it seems at least some people, in particular the mayor, have a different plan in mind.” “Everybody who wanted to be heard was heard,” the mayor said. “The process worked and it worked well.” The planning board’s decision follows determinations by the zoning board and the zoning officer that the Dunkin’ establishment is a category-two restaurant, making it a permitted use in the borough’s B-1 zone. Objectors have argued it should be considered a category-three restaurant, or a drive-thru, which would deem it a non-permitted use in the zone. Much of the conversation that night centered on revised site plans for the shopping center to address traffic and safety concerns raised by board members and residents. One idea, presented by borough traffic engineer Betsy Dolan, was to turn the eastern driveway into a right-turn-only lane but it was ultimately rejected. By Allison Perrine The approval was delivered in a 7-2 vote at the Tuesday, Aug. 20 meeting. “No” votes were cast by planning board chair Todd Lehder and councilwoman Betsy Koch, planning board liaison. Others, like resident Tracy Cole, were unhappy with the outcome, citing traffic impact concerns. At one time the borough had an ordinance banning fast-food establishments in Fair Haven, but it went missing during a recodification process in 2002. The borough is now working on a new ordinance to specifically ban drive-thru restaurants. FAIR HAVEN – Months of debate came to a head as the borough planning board approved a Dunkin’ coffee chain in the River Road Shopping Center. “I think congestion on River Road may force commuters to seek alternate routes through the residential neighborhoods at the same time of day our kids are going to school on bikes and walking,” Cole said. When asked about his feelings on the planning board’s decision, Mayor Benjamin J. Lucarelli said he was pleased that the matter came to a conclusion and that the planning board did an excellent job of exercising a democratic process. last_img read more

Watching Waterfowl and Searching for Seals Along Sandy Hook

first_imgHaines believes most people participate in the walk to see the seals rather than the waterfowl, but 8-year-old Manus Connagham was an exception. He came to see both. Photo by Patrick Olivero Photo by Patrick Olivero Families, friends and animal lovers of all sorts joined the American Littoral Society for its seal and waterfowl walk Saturday morning, led by Jeff Dement, the society’s fish-tagging program director. Haines said she typically plans four seal and waterfowl walks between January and March, with two on weekends and two on weekdays. She is considering adding an extra one if more seals continue to show up. Look for announcements at LittoralSociety.org.  Longtime friends Beth Spiro, Pat Steen, Mara Neske and Carol Cuddy, residents of Monmouth County, said they often participate in events held by the American Littoral Society. This was Neske’s first time attending this particular walk, which she admitted was not what she expected. Photo by Patrick Olivero At various locations along the peninsula during the two-hour event, Dement identified different waterfowl and scouted for seals. Through binoculars, telescopes and long-lens cameras, participants spotted the marine mammals bobbing and swimming in the water and, at Skeleton Hill Island, saw between 20 and 30 seals hauling-out, or resting out of the water on a large rock.  “There’s history everywhere you look around Sandy Hook,” he said. Photo by Patrick Olivero “We (the American Littoral Society) function as a bridge between science and the public,” he said. “Education is at the core of everything.” By Raven Rentas “It was so much more diverse than I thought it’d be. I thought, ‘Oh, he’s going to show us places to see seals and when I walk here, I can go see them,’ but that truly was not the real highlight,” Neske said. “It was the whole walk and how interesting Sandy Hook is. I mean, it’s amazing.” According to the society’s education director Nicole Haines, there are several reasons seals come to New Jersey during the winter months, including preferring the colder water temperatures of the north Atlantic. In March, the seals migrate farther north so they can continue to stay in the cold waters that suit their bodies. Dement said they also come to the Jersey Shore to look for prey.  Dement hopes events like the seal and waterfowl walk will help people recognize the importance of marine life. Manus aspires to become an ornithologist when he grows up. According to him, he “fell in love with animals” from the moment he was born. “He’s a bird watcher so we’re just always looking out for cool bird watching and nature trips,” Benson said. Besides discussing seals and waterfowl, Dement pointed out many different plants, sharing interesting facts, personal stories and historical events tied to them. Manus and his mother, Sarah Benson, traveled all the way from Brooklyn to attend the Saturday morning walk.  “I’m into marine life, reptiles, dragons and birds,” he said. The article originally appeared in the February 6-12, 2020 print edition of The Two River Times.

Adieu, Dr. Brisbane and Other Ebola Victims:

first_imgThe Liberian nation was deeply saddened when, amidst the subdued celebration of our 167th Independence Anniversary, we learned in the early afternoon of July 26 that one of our most senior and most distinguished medical practitioners had fallen victim to Ebola.Dr. Samuel Brisbane spent a considerable portion of his career at the Firestone Medical Center where, from 1992 to 2003, he served as medical director.  He   later transferred to the John  F. Kennedy Medical Center (JFK), where he rendered services based on his nearly a half century of experience as a general practitioner.  He had already begun his medical practice at the JFK when he returned from medical studies in Germany at the turn of the 1970s.In his long career Dr. Brisbane trained hundreds Liberian medical students as well as many from foreign lands, who have gone on themselves to become medical practitioners.In his passing, Liberia has lost an outstanding medical doctor, who was in good health, ready and able to continue for many more years to come  serving his country in the  vital field of medicine.  His unswerving commitment was doggedly maintained when so many of the younger doctors he impacted have since the 1980 coup d’etat and the outbreak of the civil war sought greener pastures abroad.  Dr. Brisbane remained on the ground throughout the war making, at great sacrifices to fulfill his invaluable services to his people.President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf led the nation and people last Saturday in paying tribute to all our health and medical personnel who have paid the supreme sacrifice in service to their compatriots since the outbreak of Ebola.And these include the widow and family of Dr. Sam M. Muhumuza, the Ugandan doctor who also lost his life last week treating Ebola patients in Caldwell, Monterrado County.  We think it was appropriate for President Sirleaf to honor his widow, Mrs. Muhumuza,  during the Independence Day ceremonies last Saturday.Meanwhile, the deadly virus continues to take its toll.  Yesterday the Daily Observer Health Correspondent, Alaskai Moore Johnson, reported that Bomi Hospital in Tubmanburg, Bomi County had been shut down because the virus had affected the county’s Health Services Officer and his entire  family of 10.The US-based humanitarian group, Samaritan Purse, reported yesterday one of its medical staff, Dr. Kent Brantly, is undergoing intensive medical care after testing positive to the virus.  Also, the Sudan Interior Mission (SIM), founders of Radio Station ELWA and ELWA Hospital, reported that one of its staff in Liberia, Nancy Write Bol, personnel coordinator at ELWA, is also infected.We at the Daily Observer join in extending our deepest condolences to all the affected  families.  We wish all who have contracted the virus, by God’s grace, a speedy and complete recovery.The President, in her Independence Day Message last Saturday, declared a state of national emergency in Liberia, and ordered Liberia’s borders closed.  Suggestions to this effect had been earlier made, but the government felt that somehow the virus would be contained.  Now that it is spreading almost like wild fire, something drastic needed to be done.The Ministry of Health and Social Welfare has been proactive in putting in place measures to prevent the spread of the disease.Today, many banks and other business houses are requiring all visitors, before entering their premises, to wash their hands with soap, Clorox solution and other  detergents.  We urge ALL other businesses, public buildings, schools and other educational institutions and even homes throughout the country to do the same.  Before one enters a yard, a gate or a building, there should be water, soap or detergents available to enable all to wash hands before entrance.Yesterday, the Liberia Petroleum Refining Company, one of the nation’s leading and most forward looking public corporations, joined in the battle against Ebola.  The LPRC Board of Directors allocated US$75,000 to assist the Health and Social Welfare Ministry to acquire more gloves and other gears to protect the people from Ebola.We applaud the LPRC for this magnanimous gesture and call on all other para-statals as well as all businesses and concessions, such as Firestone, ArcelorMittal, Sime Darby, etc., to pitch in by contributing to the fight against this incurable and deadly virus which, as never before, threatens the entire Liberian landscape and far beyond.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
