Consumers are advised not to eat Snow Farm Creamery Baby Swiss and Baby Swiss with Mustard Seed raw milk cheeses labeled with the code “02 04 19” or purchased after April 24. Consumers with questions about the recalled product can contact Calvin Snow at 607-351-4914. No illnesses associated with the cheese have been reported, but the Department of Agriculture cautions that Listeria-contaminated products can cause serious illness. In healthy people Listeriosis usually causes mild flu-like symptoms, according to the department. Pregnant people are considered a high-risk group, as Listeriosis can result in stillbirths. In immune-compromised people, Listeria can cause meningitis and blood poisoning. The affected cheeses were sold in plastic packaging beginning April 25 at the GreenStar Co-op on Buffalo Street, Brookton’s Market, the Brooktondale Farmers Market, the Ithaca Farmers Market and the Candor Daffodil festival. Samples were also served at the Town of Caroline Board meeting on June 12.last_img read more

Maersk Drilling bags $100 million deal with Equinor

first_imgRig upgrades The contract was awarded to the low-emission jack-up rig Maersk Intrepid, the rig owner said on Thursday. In addition, Maersk Drilling will also get a framework contract with Equinor.  Namely, Maersk Drilling and Equinor have reached an agreement on the provision of integrated services for the campaign, including Managed Pressure Drilling, slop treatment, cuttings handling, and tubular running services. Framework deal Offshore drilling contractor Maersk Drilling has been awarded a contract by Equinor for the drilling of three wells and plugging of one on the Martin Linge field offshore Norway. The project is supported by a grant from the Norwegian NOx Fund, and by Equinor’s decision to introduce compensation formats to stimulate emission reductions. The contract extension is agreed as part of a new master framework agreement between Equinor and Maersk Drilling, aimed at facilitating long-term collaboration in Norway and internationally. The contract value is approximately $100 million, including rig modifications and upgrades, but excluding the integrated services provided and potential performance bonuses. In direct continuation of the rig’s current workscope at the Martin Linge field, the Maersk Intrepid will be assigned to drill and complete three additional gas wells at Martin Linge, followed by the plugging and abandonment of one well. In addition to the hybrid power and low-emission upgrades, Maersk Intrepid will be outfitted with the NOVOS drilling system. The contract extension is expected to start in September 2020, with an estimated duration of 339 days, which will keep the rig deployed into the second half of 2021. These upgrades combine the use of hybrid power with low levels of NOx emissions, adding data intelligence to further reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions. During Maersk Intrepid’s previously agreed workscope, Maersk Drilling will complete a series of upgrades to turn it into the first hybrid, low-emission rig. In the framework agreement, the parties commit to collaborate on technology advancements with a focus on digitalisation and automation, as well as further initiatives to limit greenhouse gas emissions from drilling operations. The system assists the driller in executing processes consistently and enables interfacing with third-party advisory algorithms to enhance drilling performance. The contract includes an additional one-well option, plus the option of adding up to 120 additional days of well intervention. Further, the agreement lays out a general framework for the delivery of integrated services. As part of the agreement, Equinor has designated Maersk Intrepid as a preferred jack-up rig, with exclusive access to the rig if certain conditions are met. Maersk Intrepid is an ultra-harsh environment CJ70 jack-up rig, designed for year-round operations in the North Sea. It was delivered in 2014 and has been operating in Norway ever since.last_img read more

Cricket News England achieve history in Sri Lanka series, secure 3-0 whitewash in Tests

first_imgNew Delhi: England ended their tour of Sri Lanka on the ultimate high when they clinched the third and final Test at the Sinhalese Sports Club (SSC) by 42 runs to achieve a historic 3-0 series whitewash. With this result, England achieved a clean sweep of Sri Lanka across all formats, winning the ODIs 3-1 and the one-off Twenty20 International. When left-arm spinner Jack Leach trapped last man Suranga Lakmal for 11, Joe Root’s side had secured a 3-0 whitewash in the sub-continent for the first time. England became only the third team after Australia and India to whitewash the Lankans at home.Read More |Steve Smith, David Warner are plotting Virat Kohli’s downfall in TestsResuming day 3 at 53/4 in pursuit of 327, Leach accounted for night watchman Lakshan Sandakan for 7 but Roshen Silva joined Kusal Mendis and the duo shared a 102-run stand for the sixth wicket. Mendis attacked the spinners and was confidently rotating the strike while Silva chose to drop anchor and steady the ship. However, Moeen Ali broke the dangerous partnership when he trapped Silva LBW for 65. The umpire had given it not out and Root opted for the review. Replays showed that the ball hit the pad first before crashing onto the stumps.Read More | Virat Kohli powers India to series-levelling win in Sydney T20IWith Niroshan Dickwella and Kusal Perera departing cheaply, all hopes rested on Mendis but when he was run-out for 86, it seemed a mere formality for England. However, Lakmal and Malinda Pushpakumara strung a solid partnership for the last wicket to raise hopes of a miraculous win for the hosts.Pushpakumara recovered from a blow to the side of the helmet by Stuart Broad but he continued to attack the England bowling. However, Leach, who had troubled the Sri Lankan batsmen throughout this match, spun one across Lakmal to trap him LBW and secure the whitewash.Records galoreThe 3-0 result helped the England team amass plenty of records. Root’s side secured only their third whitewash ever away from home. For Sri Lanka, there was not a single centurion in the entire series. For Leach, it was a great tour for him as he finished with 16 wickets in three Tests at an average of 21.38. For Sri Lanka, this was their third 3-0 whitewash at home in the last 18 years, with India and Australia achieving this feat in 2004 and 2017.With success in ODIS and T20Is, England became only the third team after Pakistan and India to secure success in Sri Lanka across all formats.

Facebook Could Become World’s Leading News Reader (Sorry Google)

first_imgFrom TV to Tivo and Hulu, from the mall to Amazon and eCommerce and from newspaper carriers and delivery trucks to online syndication and subscription – distribution of goods, services and information has changed a lot thanks to the internet. Subscription to syndicated publications hasn’t changed nearly as much yet as it could in the future, though.Services like MyYahoo and iGoogle saw some traction and many readers here may have a Google Reader account, but dedicated RSS (really simple syndication) feed reading services have never lived up to their potential to become a mainstream phenomenon. These days many people say they just wait until links get shared on Twitter and they never use a feed reader at all. Late last week Facebook threw its hat in the ring and called on users to use its service as a news feed reader. There are a number of reasons why Facebook could be the strongest online subscription option yet.Update: Hard numbers have now confirmed that Facebook is already the biggest news reader on the web. In our next post on the subject, we discuss the implications of Facebook’s relatively small market share on the future of free thinking.If you publish content on the web and are looking for maximum distribution, you probably know that Facebook is the promised land. The site is about 10 times as big as Digg or Twitter but so far has been less focused on sharing and clicking links. If Facebook can become the go-to place for hundreds of millions of users to find news (and that seems quite likely, doesn’t it) then the company is going to be in a very good position.Last week, Facebook’s Malorie Lucich posted to the company blog encouraging users set up their Facebook accounts for news reading. Lucich suggested becoming a “fan” of news organizations that publish to Facebook, then adding those connections to a dedicated “list” that only displays updates from news sources. You can subscribe that way to ReadWriteWeb here for example, to the New York Times, to the Environmental Justice Foundation or to thousands upon thousands of other organizations that publish regularly, usually with RSS under the hood. Facebook could make some interface changes that would make this news-reader model all the easier, but this use case is quite compelling already. Facebook will never replace a dedicated RSS reader (or 5) for serious professional use but the fact is that the vast majority of people online have not begun to take advantage of the powerful subscription options that the web now allows. Online syndication has huge disruptive potential, not the least of which is access to larger audiences for smaller voices than they’ve ever been able to access before.Is Google Reader better than Facebook for reading feeds? Maybe. There are RSS readers that are better than Google Reader, too. But in terms of change-the-world feed-reading mass adoption – it’s most likely to be Facebook that gets millions of mainstream users on board.Here’s why Facebook could become a world-changing subscription platform. Related Posts marshall kirkpatrick Tags:#Analysis#NYT#RSS Readers#social networks#web Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Hundreds of millions of people already use Facebook to keep up with friends and family. It’s an interface they know and love. The newsfeed model has been popularized by Facebook and so encouraging news subscription through it will be infinitely easier than trying to get people to use something new.Special messages can be posted directly to readers. Facebook isn’t a rigid “publish and subscribe” only channel, it’s a broader opportunity for communication than dedicated RSS readers offer. That makes more sense to users and is compelling to publishers.Facebook provides a common area to see all discussion around news. Google Reader added a long list of social features to its service over the past few years but social just turned into clutter and weighed the service down. Social + news in Facebook makes sense.Reader interaction expands distribution into larger, social contexts. When you “like” or comment on a news item, that shows up on your profile page and in the live feeds of all your friends. Thus they are exposed to whatever publishers you’re a fan of. Likewise, as of December the pages you’re a fan of (i.e. subscribed to) have been irrevocably visible to the public at large on your profile page. While it is a major privacy problem that people are no longer allowed to have private subscriptions on Facebook, the fact that they are public increases the likelihood that new people will discover those news sources and become fans themselves.Partial feeds are good for readers. Back in the early days of dedicated RSS readers, a debate raged about whether publishers should distribute their full news stories in their feeds or whether it’s ok to publish just an excerpt and require readers to click through and view ads in order to read the whole story. Geeky early adopters clearly expected full-feeds, but imagine full feeds showing up in your Facebook interface! No way. Nice, scannable excerpts serve readers well there and the requirement that links be clicked and ads viewed serve publishers well, giving them more reason to promote Facebook subscription than many publishers ever felt they had to promote RSS subscription.The branded logo of become a fan on Facebook is more powerfully communicative than the community-standard orange broadcast logo of an RSS feed. Click on an RSS icon and most people will just get confused. Click on the logo of the monolithic Facebook and you’re subscribed. Sometimes drastically reducing choices makes them more likely to participate. That’s not pretty, but it’s realistic.Finally, “Become a Fan” is a relatively clear call to action. It’s emotionally resonate and very obviously free of charge. Most people probably don’t even know they are subscribing to updates when they become a fan of something on Facebook. Maybe that will change, though. Using the word “subscribe” explicitly harkens a different media era, though, when subscription was almost never free. Facebook is a publishing, syndication and subscription platform where the interests of the reader, the publisher and the platform provider are all in sync. That’s powerful. Subscription through Facebook may be sterile, hermetically sealed and controlled by one too-powerful communication company but it works. Facebook clearly has an opportunity to become the subscription mechanism of choice for hundreds of millions of readers and for millions of publishing organizations. That’s a good place for any company to be.You can subscribe to (and discuss the future of the Web with) ReadWriteWeb on Facebook here.last_img read more
