first_imgAfter wrestling with the cougar, it released its grip on the child and ran away. The British Columbia Conservation Officer Service responded, finding two juvenile male cougars about 20 yards away from the family’s home. They were reportedly hungry and looking for food.

TGS finalizes Russian Sea of Okhotsk 2D survey reprocessing

first_imgThis reprocessing project is the second phase of a mission to provide greater offshore coverage of the region, following TGS’ original 2D Phase 1 Clari-Fi broadband reprocessing of 18,970 square kilometres in 2019. TGS has completed the reprocessing of a 21,631 square kilometres 2D seismic survey offshore Sakhalin Island, in the Russian Sea of Okhotsk. The reprocessing has been undertaken with the support of TGS’ Russian partner, DMNG. Following completion of the project, first data has been sent out to pre-funding customers and is now available to all industry customers. “Offshore Russia has long been an important region for TGS and the completion of the second phase of processing in the Sea of Okhotsk further strengthens our library of data here. There have been a number of significant discoveries of both oil and gas in recent years and our seismic data will be a core tool for explorers as they seek to further develop offshore hydrocarbon resources in the area in the years to come.” Kristian Johansen, CEO at TGS.last_img read more

China bans smoking in public places in Beijing

first_imgAnyone breaking the regulations three times will be shamed on government websites. Beijing will ban smoking in restaurants, offices and on public transport from Monday.This tough new law has been celebrated by anti-tobacco advocates however many say its a challenge on how the law will be enforced.Health activists have pushed for years for stronger restrictions on smoking in China, the world’s largest tobacco consumer, which is considering further anti-smoking curbs nationwide.Under the rules, anyone in China’s capital who violates the bans, which include smoking near schools and hospitals, must pay 200 yuan ($32.25). The current fine, seldom enforced, is just 10 yuan ($1.60).A branch was found to have failed to publicise the hotline to report offenders and cigarette butts were found in the restaurant’s toilet, the report said.Lighting up in open areas near schools and hospitals is also banned.Anyone breaking the regulations three times will be named and shamed on city government websites.Restaurants could be fined up to 10,000 yuan for failing to stop people smoking indoors.The moves have been welcomed by anti-tobacco advocates, but some members of the public doubt whether the new rules will be enforced effectively.Users of social media websites said they saw people smoking in office buildings and in railway stations without being stopped on Monday morning.China has over 300 million smokers and over a million Chinese people die from smoking-related illnesses every year.Smoking bans already existed in China, but have largely failed to crack down on the habit.last_img read more

Geraghty admits tough McManus call

first_img “I have a great connection there and it definitely wasn’t easy to walk away from that. “I’d hope to ride a good few for Nicky when I’m not required for JP when I’m in England. I’d hope to keep the connection going even when I’m riding JP’s horses for Nicky. “JP has a great team of horses, likewise Nicky had too. I suppose it was a win-win situation, but lifestyle is definitely the strongest factor in it. “I have a young family and had a little boy just a few weeks ago. It’s a busy house and to be away as much as I’ve been away over the last seven years, it definitely takes its toll. It’s good to have a better balance. “I’ve discussed it with AP and I’ve discussed it with Nicky. I’m more than happy with it and I’m looking forward to it. “We’re all in it for the big days. It’s nice to be riding winners any day of the week, but the big days really do count for an awful lot. “The Irish Grand National was a great thrill and riding two winners at Cheltenham on Jezki and More Of That – that season was brilliant, so I’ve been very fortunate to have ridden some great winners for JP over the years. “I had my second Festival winner on Youlneverwalkalone in 2003. I’ve been lucky to ride some nice horses for him over the years.” Geraghty named some of the key horses he is excited at teaming up with in his first season wearing the famous gold and green silks. “It will be interesting to see how My Tent Or Yours is after having missed a season. He was only touched off by Jezki in the Champion Hurdle, so if gets back to that he should be a big player,” he said. “Shutthefrontdoor won the Irish Grand National and ran well in the English Grand National. He’s a horse for the future. “Kitten Rock was impressive during the season and he should make a nice chaser. There is plenty of quality there and a lot to look forward to.” Geraghty has been sidelined with a broken shinbone since March but is now riding out again and is looking to be back in action early next month. “I’ve been off for three months with a fractured shinbone. That’s been a little bit slow and a lot slower than I thought,” he said. “I rode out yesterday morning and I was in with Gordon Elliott. I rode out three lots today. It’s getting there and I’d hope to be back early in July.” McCoy believes Geraghty is the right choice. “You want to give yourselves the best possible chance of winning and having someone like Barry on your side gives you that,” McCoy told The Times. “His record speaks for itself and you don’t ride the big winners he’s had without being top drawer in every department. “He’s got lots of experience, is good with people and there is a lot of class about him. “Barry had a very close association with Nicky and I’m sure he would have found it difficult to walk away, but wearing the green and gold colours is the best job in jump racing and one very hard not to be interested in. “There’s nothing else like it.” Barry Geraghty has admitted accepting the role of number one rider for leading owner JP McManus was not an easy decision. Press Association The speculation continued when McCoy finally hung up his saddle in April and ended on Monday with news that Geraghty had accepted the role. Geraghty has been riding principally for Seven Barrows trainer Nicky Henderson since 2008 and the pair have won most of the biggest races on the calendar together, including the Cheltenham Gold Cup with Bobs Worth and the Queen Mother Champion Chase with Sprinter Sacre, both in 2013. However, his new appointment means he will not have to commute from Ireland as often as in the past. “It’s a great job to get. I suppose discussions probably started since Punchestown. I met up with JP last week and we discussed it. It fits in really well,” Geraghty told At The Races. “Obviously I’ve done seven years riding for Nicky and it’s been brilliant. We’ve had some great success, but there’s a lot of travel involved and a lot of time away. “I have a young family here and I think it might be a better balance going forward, maybe doing two or three days in England and have more time at home. It works well on a personal level. “It definitely suits well but it wasn’t a decision I could take lightly. “I’ve had a great time riding as first jockey for Nicky. We’ve had great success and a brilliant bunch of owners, who I would be very friendly with and going forward I would consider as friends. Speaking for the first time since the news of his appointment broke, the 35-year-old revealed the job offered a better balance from a personal point of view as he has a wife and young family. As soon as Tony McCoy announced his intention to retire in February, Geraghty was favourite with the bookmakers to fill the massive void. last_img read more
