Right On Que

first_imgIn the thick of summer (or, more aptly, in the thick of the post-Memorial Day traffic), Greenport can feel worlds away from the South Fork. I don’t mean to dissuade all of my fellow South Forkers from heading north for the fine dining options that abound, but I get how it is. Look down Route 27 at the line of cars, and you might feel inclined to turn back around and stay home.But why deny yourself the innumerable pleasures of the North Fork’s culinary offerings if, say, there is a better way of bringing them to you? In Greenport, Green Hill Kitchen & Que is now offering (drum roll, please) same-day delivery to the Hamptons, just as long as you’re mindful enough to place your order before 2 PM. That means that you can enjoy the smoky, award-wining barbecue stylings of chef and pitmaster Matty Boudreau without the traffic.In the barbecue department, you can enjoy a plethora of offerings: smoked prime brisket, beer can chicken with mustard barbecue sauce, pulled pork, smoked turkey breast turned into a sandwich and served on a pretzel bun, blackened Scottish salmon, smoked jackfruit, and hot and sweet wings with blue cheese and celery. Meals are also available. The Hungry Man feeds one to two people, while the BBQ XXL feeds three to four. The piece de resistance, Da Pit Crew, is enough for seven to eight. All the meals come with a selection of sides.Speaking of sides, Green Hill offers fries, cheddar grits, collard greens, creamy slaw, barbecue beans, yellow rice, garlicky broccoli, and beans and rice. There are also quarantine kits available, enough for either two or four people, three proteins and four sides. For dessert, indulge in a giant brownie, a “burnt” cheesecake, or a pint of ice cream (there are seven different flavors available).There are other non-barbecue items available, too, like a stellar lobster roll, a smash burger, cauliflower nuggets served with ranch, grilled garlic shrimp, and local calamari. And each day of the week has its own rotating special, which is featured online. In the true spirit of barbecue, you can get five-serving to-go order of chef Boudreau’s blood orange margarita.Daily delivery takes place from noon to 6 PM, so you can plan your meal for either lunch or dinner — an effortless family day around the pool, or a casual dinner to cap off a summer afternoon. Green Hill is open seven days a week, so there’s no end to how much barbecue you can have delivered. “Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,” to quote a most famous playwright. He was not talking about pulled pork and beer can chicken, maybe, but had he known of the possibilities of the 21st Century, perhaps Shakespeare would have seen Macbeth’s tragedy as one of too little smoked meat. The point is that you can get your barbecue delivered today — but also tomorrow, and tomorrow, and also the tomorrow after that. It’s the Greenport-to-Hamptons gift that keeps on giving, summer traffic or not.Actually, I think I quite prefer the idea of smoked meat arriving in my own pool-bedecked backyard, hassle-free, on a hot June afternoon, to the idea of traveling to eat. It appeals to my inner homebody. Why change out of my bathing suit when I can laze about in the sun, chicken wings in one hand, blood orange margarita in the other? There are no dishes to attend to, no drinks to refill. The labor, you see, has been completed by someone else, all of it, even the driving. I’ll take that order to go, if you don’t mind.

New sulphur regulations for Hong Kong and Taiwan

first_imgHong Kong’s current regulation requires ships to burn fuel with a sulphur content not exceeding 0.5 percent while at berth. From January 1, 2019 this regulation will extended to ships operating in Hong Kong waters, irrespective of whether they are sailing or at berth, and will mean that ships not fitted with scrubbers will be required to burn fuel with a sulphur content not exceeding 0.5 percent.In Taiwan, from January 1, rather than having designated domestic emission control areas (ECA), ships not fitted with scrubbers will be required to burn fuel with a sulphur content not exceeding 0.5 percent when entering its international commercial port areas, said Gard.This development aligns Hong Kong and Taiwan with China, which will implement the final step in its ECA timeline on January 1, meaning that ships not fitted with scrubbers must burn low sulphur fuel while operating anywhere within the country’s ECAs in the Pearl River and Yangtze River Deltas, and Bohai-rim Waters.Gard noted that there have been reports suggesting China will expand this regulation to apply to ships sailing within its entire territorial sea, but there has not yet been a formal announcement regarding this.The IMO sulphur cap – slated to be the biggest regulatory change the shipping industry has ever faced – is due to come into force on January 1, 2020 and will cut the allowable sulphur content in marine fuel from 3.5 to 0.5 percent.The Baltic and International Maritime Council (BIMCO) recently developed two bunker clauses to support the implementation of the sulphur 2020 regulations, as reported by HLPFI here.www.gard.nowww.imo.orglast_img read more

Clean PhilHealth mess until Dec., new chief told

first_imgMANILA – Newly-appointed Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PhilHealth) chief Dante Gierran was given until December 2020 to cleanse the corruption-ridden state insurer. “Because PhilHealth was created pursuant to law, amended by the Universal Healthcare Law and it depends on the wisdom of Congress, if they feel that the legislative basis for the existence of PhilHealth should be amended, so be it, the President will respect that,” Roque said. “Nirerespeto po natin ang views, ang pananaw po ng ating  Pangulo pagdating sa bagay na ‘yan pero siyempre po kung mawawala po ang PhilHealth ay napakalaki po ng magiging epekto nito sa ating bayan,” Baleña said yesterday. Palace spokesperson Harry Roque said President Rodrigo Duterte gave instruction to “file all the cases that need to be filed” and “suspend and terminate” all erring PhilHealth officials within the deadline. “It is an ultimatum. You need to clean up PhilHealth by the end of the year,” Roque said. The spokesperson added that the President is considering the idea of abolishing or privatizing PhilHealth but the chief executive knew that it will still up to Congress to decide.center_img Meanwhile, PhilHealth spokesperson Rey Baleña said millions of Filipinos will bear the brunt should the state health insurer be abolished amid the coronavirus pandemic. “Napakagandang programa po ng National Health Insurance Program at taun-taon po milyun-milyong Filipino po ang natutulungan po nito kaya napakalalaking kawalan po kung mawawala ang PhilHealth. Kailangang kailangan po ito lalo na po sa ganitong panahon ng pandemya,” he added. PhilHealth was created in 1995 to implement universal health coverage in the country. As a government-owned corporation, PhilHealth is tax-exempt and attached to the Department of Health. Under the Universal Health Care Act of 2018, all Filipino citizens must be automatically included in the National Health Insurance Program either as direct or indirect contributors./PNlast_img read more

Calderon in Transition

first_img Share By Larry GageSpecial to the PRESSSenior Port Isabel High student/athlete Zaid Calderon is a man in transition.  He played linebacker on the Tarpon football team and is now transitioning from that sport to basketball.  The Press found Mr. Calderon at practice in Tarpon Gym Monday afternoon and he talked about it all happens. As a defensive football player Calderon brings a kind of hard-nosed physicality to the hard-court game, and that can make for a very tough defensive player in the indoor game.  “He’s a very good defensive player,” head P.I. boys’ coach Mike Hazelton said this week.  “If he goes in things are going to pick up, because you know he’s going to get after it. He’s very intense.  I know what I’m going to get when I put him in. He’s going to play as hard as he can. He brings a lot of energy when he’s on the floor.  And he’s getting a lot more playing time this year.”Defense is not complicated and Calderon explained in simple terms how it’s done; “Keep moving your feet, stop reaching in, and stay in front of them.” This year’s Port Isabel hoops squad seems to have a habit of starting games slowly, and Calderon addressed that aspect of its game.  “Sometimes we come out slow and soft.  We just need to come ready to go strong.”One thing that is surely right with this team is its sense of togetherness.“Some of us have been playing together since we were small, so we’re close to each other.  The chemistry helps a lot in a team sport.” On offense, “We’re just trying to push the ball down the court and score as much as we can.  If we go fast we can catch the other team off-guard and score on the fast breaks.” That’s what happened in last week’s win at Lyford; “At the half they were up by two points.  In the second half we just came out strong … six consecutive fast breaks. We got the lead and just kept pushing the ball.” Calderon said everyone on the team is healthy and will try to stay that way.  “We’re just working together …and we want to get that district title.” On defense; “It’s not where we would like it to be but we’ll work on it to make it better.  We’ll get there – get our defense together.” So, Zaid, what kind of a shooting is this current edition of Tarpon hoops? “We can shoot from wherever.  Anytime we have the ball we’ll look for the easy shot, but if there isn’t one we’ll take whatever we can get.  If the play’s not there you can drive in or, if they leave you open on the three, you’ve got to take a chance and shoot that.” Calderon doesn’t consider himself an inside shooter; “I’m more of an outside shooter because I don’t have the height to drive in (to the basket).” “He brings physicality and an intensity,” Hazelton told the Press.  “He’s just going at it the whole time. He never wants to come off the floor.  Sometimes I think I’m going to have to scrape him off the floor.”  RelatedSenior Hoops Player Lozano Ready to GoBy Larry Gage Special to the PRESS Senior Tarpon basketball player Dennis Lozano can’t wait for hoops season to get here.  He is one of those Port Isabel High players who never seems to stop working on his game and trying to get better.  The Press found him outside Tarpon…October 18, 2019In “Sports”Martinez, Villarreal Named All-StateBy LARRY GAGE Special to the PRESS Port Isabel High Tarpon football players Stephen L.

‘Curi’ Pasar Boeing, Airbus Genjot Produksi A321XLR,Pernah Minta Cebok Ke Pramugari, Pria Gemuk Ini Telah Meninggal Dunia

first_imgSeolah luput dari sorot kamera media, secara mengejutkan Airbus sudah meluncurkan varian A321XLR, versi terbaru dari pesawat single-aisle yang mampu meruntuhkan kedigdayaan Boeing dengan varian 737 MAX kebanggaan mereka. Seperti yang sudah disinggung di atas, A321XLR milik Airbus merupakan lawan yang sepadan bagi Boeing 737 MAX.Kendati tidak secara terang-terangan mendeklarasikan bahwa Airbus mencoba untuk mengambil keuntungan dari keterpurukan yang tengah dialami Boeing ini, namun dengan diluncurkannya A321XLR seolah sudah menjadi pertanda yang sangat jelas bahwa perusahaan yang berbasis di Eropa ini ingin mencuri ceruk pasar Boeing.“Saya tentu tidak mendorong perilaku apa pun untuk mencoba mengeksploitasi situasi ini, karena ini di luar batas,” ujar Christian Scherer yang mengisyaratkan bahwa Airbus tidak mungkin untuk meningkatkan produksi secara masif, dikutip KabarPenumpang.com dari laman reuters.com (18/4/2019).Baca Juga: Berikan Dukungan Pada Boeing, Donald Trump Usulkan Rebrand 737 MAXAkal bulus pihak Airbus untuk mencuri konsumen dari Boeing semakin terlihat manakala adanya rencana peningkatan produksi dari varian ini yang digalang-galang akan dimulai pada tahun depan, dari 57 pesawat menjadi 63 pesawat. Sebenarnya, angka 63 pesawat yang diproduksi oleh pihak Airbus dalam sebulan ini lebih sedikit dari rencana awal yang mereka ramu – 70 pesawat. Hal ini dilatarbelakangi oleh keterbatasan potensi dari pihak pembuat mesin yang mengaku kewalahan untuk menjabani permintaan dari Airbus. Sumber: Sam Chui Di tengah keterpurukan pihak Boeing pasca kecelakaan dua pesawat 737 MAX 8 dalam rentang waktu 5 bulan ini, ternyata dimanfaatkan dengan jeli oleh kompetitor abadinya, Airbus. Melalui Kepala Penjualan Airbus, Christian Scherer, manufaktur kedirgantaraan asal Eropa ini dikabarkan tengah menekan penjualan dari pesawat jenis A321 yang memiliki body lebih panjang ketimbang “saudara kandungnya”, A320. Ya, ini merupakan saingan yang sepadan untuk jenis 737 MAX 8 milik Boeing.Baca Juga: Di Balik Prahara Boeing 737 MAX 8, Mampukah Airbus ‘Curi’ Ceruk Pasar?Sebagaimana yang diketahui bersama, era pesawat berbadan kecil yang mampu merengkuh penerbangan jarak jauh dengan efisien memang tengah naik daun belakangan ini. Para maskapai dari berbagai penjuru dunia seolah tidak melirik pesawat wide-body hanya demi menyambung nafas kas perusahaan, karena mereka beranggapan bahwa penerbangan jarak jauh dengan menggunakan pesawat wide-body seperti Airbus A380 tidaklah seefisien pesawat narrow-body – terutama dari segi load factor.

Argos Fall in Devastating Loss to North Alabama, 2-3

first_img Share Argos Fall in Devastating Loss to North Alabama, 2-3 PENSACOLA, Fla. – A heartbreaking marathon loss to North Alabama on Saturday afternoon dropped the Argos to 15-12, 5-2 in the GSC. A win looked promising for West Florida, before the Lions came back to take the final three sets (25-23, 25-15, 23-25, 10-25, 9-15). Jamie Nichols (Crawfordville, Fla./Wakulla HS) was the most efficient Argonauts, swinging at .500 on 16 kills with just one error. Chelsea Wilhoite (Jacksonville, Fla./Bishop Kenny HS) paced the Argos with 18 kills, followed by Patricia Gandolfo (Porto Alegre,Brazil/Missouri State – West Plains CC) with 17. Tricia Tirabassi (Kenosha, Wis./Tremper HS) matched her season-high 57 assists, while four Argos earned double-digit digs led by Maddie Staub (Spanish Fort, Ala./Daphne HS) with 16. The first set was all North Alabama who outhit the Argos .275 to .240, but at the last minute the Argos made a crucial change that secured the win. The Argonauts persistently battled the Lions, despite a commanding 17-12 UNA lead midway through. The serves of Kara Gonzalez (St. Augustine, Fla./St. Augustine HS) put pressure on North Alabama, and chipped away at the lead. A UNA timeout helped the Lions earn two more points, but Jesse Keroack (Gainesville, Fla./Eastside HS) stepped back to the service line and pushed to tie the set at 23. Shortly before, Nichols subbed in for the Argos, and she earned the kill for the 24-23 lead. Nichols then served up the final ball that resulted in a bad set by UNA for set point, 25-23. Wilhoite was the offensive push in set two, tallying nine kills without a single error for a .529 hitting percentage. The Argos committed just three errors as a team in the set, as Tirabassi fueled her offense to a team .386. Both Gandolfo and Nichols hit over .700 and drove the Argos to a 25-15 victory, and a 2-0 lead in the match.Set three was on the verge of sealing the deal for West Florida before a shift in momentum took its toll. It was Nichols who ran the show this time, with a total of seven kills. The Argos jumped ahead early, leading 11-9 before a run by the Lions tied the set at 12. The battle began and the set saw six more ties before a 20-20 score forced an Argo timeout. Gonzalez served the Argos to 22-20, but the Lions again staged a comeback and surged to a 23-25 victory over West Florida. The Argos faced a difficult 10-25 loss in the fourth set, forcing the match to five with a rowdy North Alabama team. UNA served an error for the first point of the fifth set, but gained control that pushed them to the crucial 8th point first. At 8-5, Gonzalez earned the side-out but West Florida couldn’t tack on more the one. Gonzalez tallied two more kills in the set, but the UNA offense was too much for the Argos who dropped the set 9-15.The Argonauts take their home court again this Tuesday, October 27th at 7pm. The match is a showdown with West Alabama, and will be the 2nd annual Black-Out match, as well as “Nica Night” for West Florida. Fans are asked to wear black, and will have the opportunity to donate to the Global Orphan Fund to support the children in Nicaragua who the Argonauts worked with on their spring international trip.
