Australian shipbuilder ASC cuts jobs

first_img January 5, 2017 Australian government-owned shipbuilder ASC announced it would cut 130 jobs from its air-warfare destroyer project by the end of February.The cuts are due to a reduced amount of work on the three Hobart-class destroyers.The number of people required for work on the ships has been reducing since early 2015.ASC will cut some 45 trade positions while another 85 positions would be reduced in the welding, painting, operator and other trade groups.The company added that the workforce reductions would have no impact on ASC’s submarine workforce or planning for the future submarine project.In October 2016, ASC split into three businesses to better focus on the projects ahead. The split resulted in the creation of shipbuilding, submarine sustainment and infrastructure companies.

Ronaldo wins Globe Soccer Award

first_imgRelatedPosts Messi becomes football’s second billionaire + Top 10 EPL: Salah nets hat-trick as Liverpool beat Leeds in seven-goal thriller EPL: Liverpool open title defence against underdogs Cristiano Ronaldo was ­on Sunday crowned men’s player of the year at the Dubai Globe Soccer Awards, winning the honour for a sixth time. The Juventus forward, 34, scooped Best Men’s Player of the Year at a glitzy ceremony at the Madinat Jumeirah, with England’s Lucy Bronze winning the inaugural award for best woman. Meanwhile, Liverpool picked up a trio of victories, with Jurgen Klopp voted best coach, Alisson Becker best goalkeeper, and the ­European champions named best club. Ronaldo retained the trophy he won earlier this year, on the back of a fine year with both Juventus and the Portugal national team. Having moved from Real Madrid the previous summer, he scored 21 goals in Serie A to fire the Turin club to an eighth successive Scudetto. He continued also his prolific strike rate for Portugal, scoring a hat-trick in the semi-final of the inaugural Uefa Nations League as his team went on to win the title. Last month, his goal against Luxembourg lifted his international tally to 99 goals and in the process helped 2016 champions Portugal qualify for this summer’s Euros. “I have to thank my family, my girlfriend, my boy there, Cristiano, my three kids who are waiting for me in the hotel, my friends, my teammates of Juventus and the national team, my agent, all the people here tonight who support this gala,” Ronaldo said. “I have to say thank you to the Arabic community, which is always great with me. I have to thank Dubai as well – it’s a marvellous place to be, I’m coming every year and I love this place. “And finally to thank [everyone] who voted for me. It’s a great honour to be here and receive this amazing award. I hope to be here next year to receive this award, of course. Thanks to everyone, and a happy New Year.” In the woman’s category, Bronze took the trophy following a stellar season with Lyon in which she played an integral role in the club’s march to the French Championship, the French Cup, the Trophee des Championnes and the Uefa Women’s Champions League. The defender, voted the Uefa Women’s player of the year, also starred as England finished fourth at this summer’s Fifa Women’s World Cup. Bronze landed the Silver Ball in France. Of the night’s other winners – 17 awards in all were handed out – Klopp added to his Fifa Best award in September in recognition of Liverpool’s international, European and domestic dominance. After defeating Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final in June, the Merseyside club top the Premier League at the halfway stage. Last week, they clinched the Fifa Club World Cup title for the first time. Brazilian Alisson lifted the goalkeeper award for the second successive year. Elsewhere, Ryan Giggs, the former Manchester United midfielder and current Wales manager, and Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic were each given the Player Career Award. Atletico Madrid and Portugal striker Joao Felix was named Best Revelation Player, which honours players aged 21 and under. There were Arab winners on the night, too, with Al Hilal voted best Arab club for their recent Asian Champions League success and Abderrazak Hamdallah named best Arab player. The Morocco striker top-scored in last season’s Saudi Pro League as Al Nassr sealed the title.Tags: Cristiano RonaldoJurgen KloppMadinat Jumeirahlast_img read more

Harsha Bhogle takes veiled shot at ‘stupid literate’ Kanika Kapoor for potentially spreading Coronavirus

Powered by Firework In less than a month, the Coronavirus pandemic that originated from the city of Wuhan, China, found its way into every corner of the world. The primary mode of transmission were the unsuspecting tourists, who unintentionally brought the virus from the epicentre. However, despite huge number of precautionary guidelines and procedures released by WHO and the Government of India,some  didn’t bother to follow them, and as a result, the virus has now entered the country. Amongst all the woes, senior cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle has come up with a statement on Twitter, indirectly taking a dig at Bollywood singer Kanika Kapoor.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Facebook/AFPDespite the warnings and suggestions going around to prevent further spread of the virus, many have not bothered to pay heed to them, and has taken the global pandemic very lighly. This had irked Harsha Bhogle, who recently took it to social media to express his dissent towards the non-cooperating part of the population.yesterday, on his official Twitter handle, Bhogle wrote: “It is so disappointing when so many people are trying so hard and stupid, literate people coming from infected areas go around partying.”Advertisement He also indicated that despite the efforts of many, the carelessness of just a handful can cause a severe desecration in the population: A million people can do right but it requires a few silly people to lose the fight. Let us stay vigilant. We are in this together.”Mentioning the notion of people who have arrived from virus-ridden areas and then landing themselves in social gatherings, seems to be a jab at singer Kanika Kapoor, who recently came back from London amidst the global emergency from the pandemic.Even after coming back from Europe, which has seen massive infections around, Kanika was reported to hide her travel history from officials to avoid quarantine and self isolation. Even after that, she was allegedly involved in a party with her family and friends in Lucknow.After Kanika was tested positive for COVID-19, the singer has received severe reprimand from the public, and even an FIR was lodged at her. However, Kanika herself denied the charges thrown at her, stating that she had undergone screening at the Lucknow airport after landing“I was part of the scanning process at the airport. I also called the CMO to check me and filled all forms at the airport,” Kanika said in an interview with Aaj Tak.“I attended a small get together on March 13,” although she accepted that she was involved in partying, Kanika has stated she has tried her best efforts to prevent anty further spread of the virus: “I tried my level best not to contaminate others. Throughout the past week, we were all wearing gloves.”Also read-PM Modi lauds ‘partnership’ between Kaif and Yuvraj as he urges Coronavirus fightSunil Chhetri reveals which game he could beat both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi at!
