New Equipment for Dredging of the Danube River

first_imgBy 2020 Bulgaria will have three new specialized vessels for surveying the condition of the Danube River and new equipment for dredging the critical sections, Transport, Information Technology and Communications Minister Ivaylo Moskovski said at Tuesday’s meeting with Romanian Transport Minister Razvan Cuc in Sofia.Minister Moskovski pointed out that a project for the delivery of a multifunctional dredging vessel and the related facilities is currently being prepared, with an indicative value of $12 million with the financing to be provided under OPTTI 2014-2020.“We have selected a contractor for the exploring vessel and it is already under construction”, Moskovski said, adding that regarding the marking vessel the Commission is expected to make a decision by the end of this month.Ivaylo Moskovski also explained that within a few days there will be a contractor selected for another procedure – to carry out dredging activities in the threshold sections of the river over the next 3 years. “The Commission has completed its work and a contract is due to be signed,” he said.The two ministers discussed the acting Agreement between Bulgaria and Romania to maintain the fairway of the Danube River from 1955. The Romanian side has proposed an amendment of the document, allowing each of the parties to carry out dredging activities throughout the Bulgarian-Romanian section of the river.In the words of the Romanian Minister, this will enable the avoidance of critical situations and the interruption of navigation along the river.Minister Moskovski said that he supports the proposal, but it has to be examined whether Bulgarian legislation allows for such an amendment and that the issue is to be resolved at expert level between the two countries.last_img read more

Courtois clarifies comments about Barcelona and La Liga title

Why Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli may not be allowed to train with Team…

Powered by Firework While cricket is currently suspended amidst the novel Coronavirus pandemic, there have been discussions of the resumption of outdoor training for the Indian cricket team, even though there has been no confirmation whether any cricketing action will happen anytime soon. However, the two stalwarts of Team India, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma- might possibly be left out from the training drills, as both icons are residing in Mumbai, which has been the most affected in the COVID-19 crisis.Advertisement Image Courtesy: BCCI/PTIMumbai has seen around 27,000 positive cases, and more than a thousand affected patients have succumbed to the virus, recorded highest in the country. With an expected continuation of strict lock down in the coming weeks or even months, getting Kohli or Rohit from the capital of Maharashtra may be impossible for BCCI.“For players like Kohli and Rohit, the restrictions are there in Mumbai and might stay,”  Arun Dhumal, BCCI’s treasurer was quoted by AFP.Advertisement The two Men in Blue icons stay in Worli, Mumbai, which single handedly has registered 20% of positive COVID-19 cases in the city.The training is aimed to begin at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru in the near future, depending on the possible mitigation of the lock down. However, the cricketers are maintaining their training drills at home, Dhumal added that BCCI is reaching out to the stars via the internet.Advertisement “As of now we are working, given the lock down restrictions, through apps and online modes. The coaches and support staff are regularly in touch with the players.”He continued: “Everybody would be keen to hit the ground and the idea is whenever we are ready for cricket to resume, they (the players) are able to give their 100 percent.”However, as Bengaluru itself is still under the threat from the virus, alternative cities are also being considered for training, in case the Karnataka capital doesn’t turn out to be feasible for the resumption of training.Recently, Cricket Australia and The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) confirmed that their players will soon resume their outfield training. ECB is also expecting to host a three match Test series against West Indies in July, however, with strict regulations.If you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out Also follow India’s biggest arm wrestling tournament at ProPanja.comAlso read-Virat Kohli reveals who the best fielder in Team India isDelhi Police come up with classy gesture to celebrate Mary Kom’s son’s birthday during lockdown!

Proposed LS Winery May Sidestep Borough Approval

first_imgBy John BurtonLITTLE SILVER – The owner of a vineyard, who has been looking to establish a winery and retail operation there, is seeking to win county approval for the enterprise – which has become controversial in the borough – and possibly circumvent local jurisdiction.Seven Bridges Winery, LLC, 640 Seven Bridges Road, has applied to the Monmouth County’s Agriculture Development Board in Freehold seeking its and the state’s approval to be allowed to move forward with plans by way of a county-issued site specific agricultural management practice plan. The submitted plan requests “an exemption of municipal site plan review,” as provided for under state statute, according to the application filed last month.Seven Bridges Winery is owned by Richard DeBlasi, who also resides on the property. In November 2011, DeBlasi and his attorney met informally with the mayor and borough council to offer his proposal and seek a zoning change to make the business a permitted use in the largely residential area.DeBlasi owns 15 acres on Seven Bridges Road, with about 5 of them dedicated to a grape vineyard and approximately 7 acres as protected wetlands. About 12.7 acres on the property is assessed as farmland. DeBlasi has been growing grapes there since April 2003 when he planted his first acre and produced his first harvest in September 2005, yielding about a ton of wine grapes, according to his application.Before April 2003 the farm produced hay for sale, the application noted.Along with running a winery and vineyard, DeBlasi has said previously he hoped to sell his wine on site and possibly operate tours and tastings.That has raised concerns with a considerable number of area residents who have expressed their opposition, fearing increased traffic and activity in the neighborhood.The borough council has not formally acted on DeBlasi’s zoning change request.DeBlasi did not immediately respond to a phone call this week seeking comment.Al Natali, who owns and operates Natali Vineyards in Cape May, said he has been working with DeBlasi on his development.Natali said Seven Bridges Winery is seeking approval through the state statute commonly referred to as the Right to Farm Act.The state Legislature approved the bill in 1983, amending it in 1998.“The act protects responsible commercial farmers from public and private nuisance actions and unduly restrictive municipal regulations,” according to the state Department of Agriculture website.Should DeBlasi eventually win approval from the county board, Natali contended the municipality couldn’t deny the use. Under Right to Farm, “local zoning is pre-empted,” he said.The act is intended to protect farming activity, “but someone who’s farming still must fulfill public safety and health issues,” said Laura Kirkpatrick, a county spokeswoman.Mayor Robert Neff Jr. said he has “heard a fair amount of opposition” to the proposal as it was being debated.Neff said borough officials are “extremely concerned our residents have the ability to comment on the application and that the town retain control over its own zoning and its own destiny.”John Bennett, the borough attorney, is researching the matter, Neff said.The county’s Agricultural Development Board “handles all matters agricultural and horticultural for the county,” Kirkpatrick said. The application is currently under its review and a public hearing will be held in the coming months, maybe as early as May, she said.last_img read more
