Your Shore House Summer Update

first_imgAs you know, living down at the shore means there will be humidity and moisture whether you like it or not. Aside from sticky skin and frizzy hair, there are other more serious consequences that can damage your home and the appliances in it. Certain appliances and ways of living create more moisture than your house can handle, leading the moisture to eventually come in contact with walls, windows, and other components of the home’s structure that will cause damage. Plus, humid temperatures are the perfect environment for the growth of mold, which you do not want to be breathing in at any time. Broadley’s wants to offer a few suggestions on keeping the moisture in your home contained to the best of your ability.1. Dry any accumulating moisture you see as soon as you discover it, and look for the source to see if there are any damages already taking place.2. Insulate your cold-water pipes to eliminate the added cool surfaces in your home.3. Tune-up your heating and cooling system to make sure they are running properly. Regular service checks from a Broadley’s technician helps the units to control moisture in the air by either reducing humidity with dry heat, or lowering moisture levels with cooler air. It is also important to make sure the units are not blocked and have a good air flow.4. Install exhausts fans that lead to the outside in rooms such as the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room, since moisture is easily formed in these areas.5. Have your home caulked and weather stripped to prevent humidity from entering and to improve energy efficiency. Broadley’s offers a free, no-obligation energy assessment for your home!6. Keep doors from room to room open to allow proper air flow.When trying to keep your home safe from moisture, remember that completely dry air is also an issue, as it causes discomfort and sometimes health issues. Keep the humidity levels between 40 and 50 percent. If you have any questions or concerns, give Broadley’s a call at (609) 390-3907 or visit them at broadleys.net. Enjoy your summer!last_img read more

Transocean rig running late to get to Phoenix South well

first_imgTransocean’s GSF Development Driller-1 drilling rig is late but on its way to drill the Phoenix South-3 well for Quadrant Energy. The rig is in the final stage of its journey from Port Louis (Mauritius) to Australia.Quadrant is the operator of the Phoenix project off Western Australia with an 80% interest and Carnarvon Petroleum is its partner with the remaining 20% interest.To remind, the rig reached South Africa where it was supposed to undertake scheduled maintenance at the beginning of February and headed to the Phoenix South-3 well location in early March.The initial plan was for the rig to arrive on location in late March in order to be ready to start drilling in early April.However, on Thursday, March 29 Carnarvon said that towing speeds have had a minor impact on the original expected arrival date, particularly the consequence of cyclone Marcus passing in front of the planned tow route.The rig is now expected to arrive on location around April 5, 2018 and be ready to start drilling around April 10, 2018.The objective of the Phoenix South-3 well is to assess the gas and condensate discovered at the top of the Caley interval in the 2017 Phoenix South-2 well. The well is to be located only some 560 meters from the Phoenix South-2 well. The Phoenix South-3 well design has been constructed to specifically allow for the evaluation of this Caley interval, unlike the Phoenix South-2 well that was designed to evaluate a broader range of reservoir intervals.The Phoenix South structure at the Caley interval is estimated to contain a gross mean recoverable prospective resource of 489 Bscf of gas and 57 million barrels of associated condensate (being 143 million barrels of oil equivalent (boe), gross, Pmean). The estimated condensate-to-gas ratio is very significant and is based on surface gas sampling from a permeable section at the top of the Caley Sandstone encountered while drilling the Phoenix South-2 well.This gas and condensate is in addition to that already discovered and initially appraised in the Roc structure, also in the Caley interval. That structure is estimated to contain a gross contingent resource (2C) of 332 Bscf of gas and 19 million barrels of associated condensate (being 74 million barrels of oil equivalent (boe), gross, 2C).last_img read more

Caribbean Airlines to end London route

first_img Share Share Sharing is caring! BusinessInternationalLifestyleNewsPrintRegionalTravel Caribbean Airlines to end London route by: Caribbean Media Corporation – August 11, 2015 Tweetcenter_img PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) – The state-owned Caribbean Airlines (CAL) says it will be ending its three weekly flights to London early next year because it is not profitable.In a statement, CAL said in addition to stop servicing the route in the first quarter of 2016, it would also be retiring the Boeing 767s from its fleet.The London service was launched in 2012, however the route performed below expectations. CAL said that the Boeing 767-300s would be returned to the International Lease Finance Corporation (ILFC).The airline, which registered a loss of US$60 million last year, said it is taking measures to suspend loss-making routes and optimise its fleet and so far this year returned two Boeing 737-800s, with two more to be removed soon, reducing the fleet size to just 12 of that model.CAL said the move will allow it to reduce operational costs while focusing on its North American prime routes – Fort Lauderdale, New York and Toronto and allowing it to compete harder for the budget-wise leisure travellers on these routes.Since 2013, CAL has been competing with increased competition from low-budget airlines such as Jet Blue and increased flights by US mainline airlines.In February, Finance Minister Larry Howai told legislators that the unaudited accounts showed a loss of US$60 million and that the airline had developed a strategy plan which envisaged it breaking even by 2017.Howai said the transformation of CAL would take three to four years following a consistent company strategy to achieve identified objectives with major milestones targeted during this period. He said this strategy plan was recently developed and completed towards the end of last year. Share 128 Views   no discussionslast_img read more

You can never know enough about the company that are interviewing you.” He also explained how important the initial hand-shake is and how first impressions can make a big impact on the outcome of the interview. “Ten seconds will be normally the time-frame it takes for people to make a judgement. Those ten seconds won’t get you the job, but they could lose you the job.

The students were amazed at his story and his drive to get to the top and it’s important that students see people who have worked hard to get to where they want to be. This illustrates what it takes to be successful and hopefully that can inspire our students to strive for greatness.” Dragons’ Den businessman tells Deele College pupils how to make their millions was last modified: October 12th, 2017 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:business studiesdeele collegeeducationPeter Caseylast_img read more
