i3 Energy operations update

The 13/23c-9 pilot well on i3 Energy’s 100% owned Liberator Field has now been plugged and abandoned as planned following completion of the vertical seismic profile (“VSP”) survey and shear wave sonic logging.The Borgland Dolphin will shortly be mobilised to drill the Serenity SA-01 well as the second well in the current drilling programme. Permitting for the SA-01 well is underway and mobilisation operations will commence as soon as the consent to locate permit is obtained from the regulatory authorities. The rig has been down-manned to minimise standby costs. Once drilling begins, the well is expected to take approximately four weeks.The Company has purchased a recently processed 3D seismic data set that will be integrated into its modelling ahead of drilling the LA-03 appraisal well at Liberator. This newly processed seismic has the characteristics necessary to allow an inversion process to be applied, enabling additional interpretation of the channel sand architecture. The processing and interpretation of this new seismic data will be undertaken while i3 is drilling the Serenity SA-01 well and will be integrated with i3’s existing mapping to confirm that the planned LA-03 well, situated in the western part of the Liberator structure, remains at an optimal location.Majid Shafiq, CEO of i3 Energy, commented: “Serenity is a high value exploration target and an exciting opportunity for i3 Energy and its shareholders. The structure itself is entirely separate from Liberator and will add significantly to the Company’s resources in a success case.“Drilling the Serenity well ahead of LA-03 will provide the necessary opportunity to process our findings from well 13/23c-9. We look forward to updating shareholders on further progress in due course once the permitting for the Serenity well has been completed.” Source: Company Press Release The Company has purchased a recently processed 3D seismic data set that will be integrated into its modelling ahead of drilling the LA-03 appraisal well at Liberatorlast_img read more

Survey finds Oxford students hardest working and most miserable in UK

first_imgStudents studying in Oxford are the most miserable in the United Kingdom, according to a survey.The study, conducted by the firm Student Living by Sodexo, found that 22% of students across both Oxford University and Oxford Brookes admitting that they regret enrolling. This is 10% higher than the proportion of students at York, and double that of Cambridge.The survey assessed a range of factors, including everything from satisfaction with the education to nightlife. Whilst 56% of those students asked about their education claimed that they attended every lecture and seminar, 65% claimed that the only reason they missed contact time was due to lack of sleep.The survey follows a report recently released by the Oxford University Student Union (OUSU), which claimed that 43% of students at Oxford feel that attending the University has adversely affected their mental health.Between 2004 and 2014 the amount of students seeking counselling rose by 136%, and the National Union of Students (NUS) continues to estimate that 10% of students nationally seek such services.Sodexo have been contacted for comment.last_img read more

Students consider accessibility of campus buildings

first_imgBenjamin Bowman, director of facilities, said all buildings on Saint Mary’s campus are handicap and wheelchair accessible.The College, which was founded in 1844, by the Sisters of the Holy Cross, has several historic buildings, including Le Mans Hall and Holy Cross Hall. “With buildings dating back to 1903, meeting today’s ADA standards are an ongoing challenge,” Bowman said. “Current ADA standards are designed into all new construction and major building renovations.”Senior Bridget Dedelow has cerebral palsy and an Individualized Education Program (IEP) that provides her with academic accommodations, but in terms of housing, she said she has done room selection with all the rest of the student body. Her first year at Saint Mary’s, Dedelow said she was in a room in McCandless Hall with a full bathroom. She now lives in LeMans Hall and said the Office of Residence Life and Community Standards has been helpful, but she doesn’t get special privileges.“I chose Saint Mary’s because of the campus size, but it was one of the schools I didn’t visit.”When Dedelow went on visits at state schools, she said those campus were difficult to navigate. Despite Saint Mary’s small campus, Dedelow said there are ways Saint Mary’s could improve the experience of a student with a physical disability. While handicapped parking spots are available near the Cushwa-Leighton Library, these spots are not for student use. Dedelow said she received a ticket when she parked outside of the library.South Bend’s winter weather also creates challenges for students with disabilities on Saint Mary’s campus, Dedelow said. “I can pretty much maneuver on my own, it’s more like getting around campus, especially in the winter,” she said. “Even though I have adequate balance, the slippery sidewalks can be difficult.”Dedelow said she thinks it’s important for there to be more open dialogue about disability on the College campus.“I wish I would have advocated more for disability services and support, physically and mentally,” she said. “Sometime you just need to talk to someone because you’re tired of being of disabled. It’s odd to say, but … it takes a mental and physical toll on your body.”Angela Athletic Facility and Wellness Center, scheduled to open fall 2017, will be more accessible for students and visitors in wheelchairs, Bowman said.“The new Angela building will meet all current ADA codes,” Bowman said. “There will be ramps at both the north and south entrances. Within the building, there will be an elevator and proper restroom facilities to accommodate ADA needs.”Bowman said the College continues to budget capital dollars toward site improvements for accommodating ADA requirements related to sidewalks and roadways.Tags: accessibility, disability, SMClast_img read more

Primed for pruning

first_imgThere are three main reasons to prune. “One is to reclaim a space that’s overgrown,” Westerfield said. “Another is to remove dead wood, and a third is to invigorate growth and reshape a plant.”Knowing how to prune is just as important as knowing what to prune. “Avoid shearing or hedging plants,” he said. “That will cause a heavy canopy to develop on the top of the plant and restrict new growth from inside the plant.”The best method is to carefully select whole branches to remove that will reshape the plant to the form you want. “Always make your cut just outside the branch collar of … a main branch or just behind a bud,” Westerfield said.One way to reclaim severely overgrown plants is called rejuvenation or renewal pruning. This requires cutting the main stems back to about 8 inches above the ground.”The best time to do this is when plants are dormant between now and the end of February,” Westerfield said. “This works for many varieties of plants.”However, don’t do this to conifers or boxwoods, he said, or to plants you want to bloom this season.Improper pruning can lead to problems. “Making pruning cuts incorrectly often leaves stubs that tend to become wet and decay, attracting harmful pests,” Westerfield said. “Be sure to use quality, razor-sharp hand pruners to make clean cuts and prevent fraying branches.”Get quality tools “Wait to prune early spring bloomers like forsythia, dogwood or azaleas after their blooms fade,” he said. “Pruning now will cut off the buds that have formed on the tips of the branches and you’ll lose your spring blooms.”Later-blooming plants can be pruned now through the end of February. These include summer-blooming crape myrtles, butterfly bushes, gardenias and plants that aren’t known for their flowering, such as hollies and other evergreens.Why and how to prune By Faith PeppersUniversity of GeorgiaWinter doesn’t offer a total break from garden chores. Now is a prime time to prune plants, but only if you need to, University of Georgia experts say.”Not everything needs to be pruned,” said Bob Westerfield, a UGA Cooperative Extension horticulturist.When to prunecenter_img Don’t cut corners when buying pruning equipment. “Buy quality equipment, with replaceable parts,” Westerfield said. “Be sure to maintain it by keeping it sharp, clean and oiled.”For more information on what plants to prune and how to do it, get the free UGA Extension publication, “Basic Principles of Pruning Woody Ornamentals.”Get the publication online at http://pubs.caes.uga.edu/caespubs/pubs/pdf/B949.pdf or from your county UGA Extension office.

How John Stamos Helped Me Prepare for ‘Masked Singer’

first_img“I’m going to miss that my dressing room door said SM [for Squiggle monster] and SM was all over everything. So, take that for what you will,” he explained. “They give you this sweatshirt that says, ‘Don’t Talk to Me,’ and an N95 mask and shield. It really is so top secret.”Saget added, “Also, I think a lot of the fans knew [who I was] because I do a lot of singing in my comedy shows. So, a lot of fans did recognize me. I’m doing a drive-in show coming up, and I think I’m going to add in all my Masked Singer songs, maybe ‘Satisfaction.’”Bob Saget as The Squiggly Monster on The Masked Singer Bob Saget Shares How John Stamos Helped Him Prepare for The Masked SingerBob Saget as The Squiggly Monster on ‘The Masked Singer’ on November 4, 2020. Michael Becker/FOXThe one thing that Saget won’t miss is his experience being in his Squiggle Monster costume. He said that the head is “way heavier” than he anticipated and that there was an abundance of foam inside, which made it “hot and hard to sing” and his “allergies were all over the place” during his time on the show.- Advertisement – Saget continued, “I got every song you play with a pop-rock band, [which is] my comfort zone. I had voice constraints on ‘Satisfaction.’ The helmet [in my costume] was choking me during that one! There was a dancer that popped up that wasn’t supposed to be there, so I turned and lost my voice because of construction. So, I sounded a little rough!”Saget and Stamos, 57, costarred on Full House together as Danny Tanner and Jesse Katsopolis, respectively, from 1987 to 1995. The pair later reprised their roles on the sitcom’s spinoff series, Fuller House, which streamed on Netflix from 2016 to 2020.Bob Saget Shares How John Stamos Helped Him Prepare for The Masked SingerBob Saget, John Stamos and David Coulier on ‘Full House’ in 1989 Lorimar/Warner Bros/Kobal/ShutterstockOn Wednesday, Saget was eliminated from The Masked Singer and was revealed to be the Squiggle Monster. The former America’s Funniest Home Videos host told Us what he will cherish most from his time on the show as the Squiggle Monster.- Advertisement – Getting by with a little help from his friends! Bob Saget revealed how his friendship with his Full House costar John Stamos helped him prepare for The Masked Singer.“John and I have been in a band since Full House and both of those songs [I performed on the show] I sang with John Stamos. Usually, it’s just a few guys jamming, but we love performing and then I love to hog the mic for four hours,” the comedian, 64, told Us Weekly exclusively on Wednesday, November 4, following his elimination from the Fox reality series. “So, John has really set me up for success.”John Stamos and Bob Saget in 2016 Bob Saget Shares How John Stamos Helped Him Prepare for The Masked SingerJohn Stamos and Bob Saget at Open Road Presents the World Premiere of “Mother’s Day” at TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on April 13, 2016.

In the character’s clues package, he called himself the “hyperactive voice of the people,” which fits his past narrating on How I Met Your Mother and hosting AFHV.
