As the death toll climbs, critics say the country is not testing enough — leaving many infections undiagnosed.India’s caseload is predicted to pass one million this month and not peak for several weeks. Schools, hotels, a planetarium and a stadium used to host US NBA games last year have all been repurposed, and on Tuesday four new field hospitals — including 700 beds inside the Mahalaxmi horseracing venue — were opened.The new facilities will together provide an extra 3,500 beds in the city of 20 million, where hospitals have been overwhelmed with hundreds of patients each day.Health workers have complained about severe staff shortages, with some senior doctors and nurses avoiding frontlines because of their vulnerability to the virus due to age or conditions such as diabetes.”Required medical help will be available at these four new treatment centers,” said a spokesman for the government of Maharashtra state, of which Mumbai is the capital. Topics : India’s financial capital Mumbai opened four new coronavirus field hospitals on Tuesday — including one at a horseracing track — as the nationwide death toll jumped past 20,000.Hospitals in densely populated cities such as Mumbai and Delhi are struggling to cope with the epidemic, and the country now has around 720,000 infections — the world’s third-highest. The Mumbai region, which accounts for about a quarter of India’s 20,100 deaths, has suffered a new surge in infections, forcing authorities to build makeshift hospitals and quarantine facilities.
Sailing speeds will decrease, as bunker prices continue to increase together with average vessel sizes, Soren Toft, Executive Vice President of A.P. Møller – Mærsk A/S, said today in the company’s conference call on business results.Slow steaming has been identified across the shipping industry as one of the key measures to cut costs and save fuel, especially upon the entrance into force of 2020 sulphur cap. This is even more important for ultra large containerships whose engines have far greater capacity than smaller ships or those dominating other shipping sectors.The container shipping sector has been slow steaming for the past 10 years, particularly on long trade routes like those connecting Asia and Europe.“We have solved one of the two issues we’ve had with the reliability of our services with speed reduction. One of the issues was relative precision in the industry, the other one was nominal delivery to our customers. We are not satisfied with what we are delivering to our customers, and there is a very good correlation between improving that and reducing sailing speed and becoming more reliable,” Toft said.As revealed, Maersk Line and Hamburg Süd managed to maintain top positions in the industry when it comes to reliability despite the overall worsening of reliability in the industry in the third quarter of the year.World Maritime News Staff

Here we are in the second week of March and we are still wondering whether spring is really going to come this year. Just last week at this time we were still dealing with a March snowstorm. Two years ago we had 80 degree days already. In just one week it will officially be spring on the calendar but we have no guarantees the weatherman will cooperate. In less than 3 weeks all spring sports will be scheduled to play. I wonder if any of them will be ready.Next week they have a full week of make-up days and the following week is Spring Break. Every spring coach dreads the two-week spring break decision. Even though families were told that the first week would be make-up days many of them are leaving town anyway. This means there will be two weeks of limited practice for all the sports. As soon as the athletes get back to full school, they are expected to be ready to go in their spring games.If the weather doesn’t improve quickly, most of the practice will have occurred inside. You can’t really simulate the outdoor environment, and we know a ball bounces much different on a wooden floor than it does on the ground. I haven’t found a gymnasium large enough to allow discus practice inside. Get out your overcoats. This may be one of those years!

Indianapolis, In. — A bill authored by Republican state senator from Oldenburg Jean Leising that would replace Indiana’s teacher licensing exams has passed the Senate unanimously.Senate Bill 532 would require the State Board of Education to replace the current Indiana teacher licensing exams with new nationally administered exams.“A number of would-be teachers who excelled in the classroom are repeatedly failing the licensing tests required of them,” Leising said. “This has not always been an issue. Five years ago, Indiana changed from a nationally administered licensing exam to a customized exam, and teaching candidates are struggling to pass. Not only is this keeping potentially great teachers out of the classroom, but some schools are resorting to substitute teachers, who are only required to have a high school diploma. Our students should be taught by college graduates if they are available.”SB 532 would require the Indiana Department of Education to implement the new exams by Sept. 1, 2021.SB 532 will now move to the House of Representatives for consideration.

UnikoinGold, the crypto token launched by esports dedicated bookmaker Unikrn has added Braveno and CoinHub exchanges to open more opportunities for acquisition of UnikoinGold. The release comes in a Medium post from Unikrn CEO Rahul Sood in which he addresses issues regarding the coins initial drop in price and further emphasises that the team over at Unikrn have a lot of features in the offing. The announcement reads “Today, I’m happy to bring two more exchanges into our folds: CoinHub and Braveno. Each brings uniquely valuable traits to the UKG ecosystem that we know will benefit our users now, and in the future”. CoinHub is an exchange which will allow users to purchase UKG directly with FIAT currency. Furthermore, CoinHub will allow crypto exchanges for Bitcoin and Ethereum as well as USD, Euros and SGD. The platform is new, but Unikrn places emphasis on it being a “quality regulated platform” which ties in well to the nature of the Unikrn business. The platform is available for users in the Middle East and Europe, but not the States and elsewhere. Braveno is built for companies and developers and should help platform partners utilise the Unikrn platform easily by creating UKG liquidity. Rahul places emphasis on this becoming increasingly important as the functions and experiences get added to the existing offering.Further assurances are provided by Sood, as he stated “The fact is, we’re a business with active token applications, we are continuing to improve token uses, and we are working on building a network of highly respectable exchanges. Blockchain wasn’t built overnight. It takes immense effort to create “sudden” success.” He concludes with a festive greeting and: “UnikoinGold’s foundation is strong, but I’m most excited about what we’ll be building on and announcing about that foundation for the end of this year and throughout 2018. Buckle up, it’s just about to get real! There will be more exchanges coming.”Esports Insider says: Congratulations to Rahul and the team, we wish them the best of luck for 2018 and hope to see some exciting features in the new year.
