Effluent removal

first_imgFirst Great Western has taken delivery of a mobile controlled emission toilet bowser from Wesurail, part of the Washtec Group. According to the company, the bowser ’improves environmental performance while maintaining all the technical and operational features of a fixed site CET facility, yet without the cost and structure implications of several permanent CET stations’. The battery powered vehicle services trains in situ, extracting effluent, rinsing the effluent tank and automatically refilling the water tank. It has an odour filtration system and on board facilities to sterilise hose ends. It is designed to be used as a back-up to or replacement for a fixed facility. FGW Depot Group Manager Andy Cope says the bowser’s mobility and accessibility across a large depot area has reduced the need for additional train movements and avoided any additional pipe installations, as the unit discharges to existing manholes.Wesurail Ltd, Great BritainReader Enquiry Number 142last_img read more

Rwanda genocide suspect Kabuga arrested in France

Taken on April 7, 2019. THOMSON REUTERS FOUNDATION/NITA BHALLARwanda genocide suspect Felicien Kabuga was arrested on Saturday in the Paris region, according to the French Justice Ministry.The 84-year-old has been on the run for 25 years. He is accused of financing the 1994 genocide which left about one million people dead.The French Justice Ministry said Kabuga was living under a false identity in a flat in Asnieres-Sur-Seine, near Paris.French gendarmes arrested him at 0530 GMT on Saturday, the ministry said.Kabuga’s arrest has been hailed by the United Nations International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals, which said in a statement attributed to Chief Prosecutor Serge Brammertz that the apprehension served as “a reminder that those responsible for genocide can be brought to account, even twenty-six years after their crimes.”“For international justice, Kabuga’s arrest demonstrates that we can succeed when we have the international community’s support. This result is a tribute to the unwavering commitment of the United Nations Security Council, which established the Mechanism to continue the accountability process in Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia,” Brammertz added.Kabuga was indicted by the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda in 1997 on seven counts of genocide, complicity in genocide, direct and public incitement to commit genocide, attempt to commit genocide, conspiracy to commit genocide, persecution and extermination, all in relation to crimes committed during the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda.Kabuga is expected to stand trial in the coming days.His arrest has been welcomed by Rwanda’s National Public Prosecution Authority, which says is ready to cooperate with the relevant authorities to ensure justice is served.Related France to set free Rwanda genocide suspectcenter_img France Declassifies Documents Regarding 1994 Rwanda Genocidelast_img read more

They’re coming off their best season so far and they’re playing their best basketball,” said Pirates head coach Michael Robinson. From a tightly-contested game in the first two quarters, the Pirates broke away in the third period behind the tandem of Marcelino and Nzeusseu to build its largest lead at 68-48 with 29 seconds left.

The only other change on the depth chart this week was Auburn senior receiver D’haquille Williams had the ‘OR’ removed from his name at one of the wide receiver starting positions.Barber not only had the game-winning touchdown in overtime, but had a crucial third-down reception where he broke two tackles and extended the game-tying drive. In a two-week stretch, Barber went from wondering if he would get any carries in the rotation to being the team workhorse in two straight weeks.“It gives me a lot more confidence than I had going into last week I can tell you that,” Barber said Saturday. “We just have to keep moving forward and get to 3-0 next week.”Jacksonville State Gamecocks linebacker Joel McCandless (3) tackles Auburn Tigers running back Peyton Barber (25) during the second half of the NCAA Auburn vs. Jacksonville State on Saturday, Sept. 12, 2015, in at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Ala.

Albert Cesare / AdvertiserWith his 240 yards through two games this season, Barber is currently the fifth-leading rusher in the Southeastern Conference and led all players last week with 125 yards on 23 carries against Jacksonville State.“He’s had two back-to-back weeks and it’s all about production,” Malzahn said after the game Saturday. “A lot of those were hard yards at the end. He’s in a good spot.”Auburn (2-0), ranked No. 18 in Associated Press poll, have suffered nagging injuries at the tailback position but Thomas was able to play Saturday and Malzahn said he “hoped” Robinson will return this week after both players suffered ankle injuries in the season opener against Louisville.“It’s just a matter of seeing how the game unfolds,” Malzahn said about the tailback depth. “Those other three running backs, there’s a decent chance you’ll see them on the field too.” read more

We were so locked in to having great practices each and every day, winning every play, winning every period. Just getting this win tonight, it showed what that kind of preparation can get us.”The No. 24 Rebels (6-2, 3-1 SEC) did so without safety Tony Conner (right knee) and defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche (concussion) but still received a strong performance on defense.The Aggies (5-2, 2-2 SEC) gained 2.6 yards per play and 192 yards of offense and earned 12 first downs. They also had trouble sustaining drives, converting 6 of 20 third downs on week after the Rebels allowed Memphis to convert 12 of 20.“That was the best defense we’ve played this year by far,” Rebels defensive coordinator Dave Wommack said. “You could sit up there in the press box and watch the difference in the way they’re playing. They were playing so fast it was like, ‘Oh, my gosh.’”The Rebels received a boost on offense with the return of left tackle Laremy Tunsil, who had been serving a seven-game suspension for accepting a wide range of impermissible benefits.His impact was noticeable from his team’s first drive.The Rebels moved from their 6-yard line to Texas A&M’s 27-yard line despite two false start penalties against left guard Aaron Morris. The drive, however, ended with a missed 44-yard field goal by kicker Gary Wunderlich with 5:45 left in the first quarter.The Rebels opened the scoring on their next possession, which ended with a 7-yard touchdown from quarterback Chad Kelly to Engram for a 7-0 lead about 3 minutes later. It was Engram’s first touchdown of the season and sixth of his career.Wunderlich bounced back from his earlier misses with field goals of 41 and 30 yards to give the Rebels a 13-0 lead. The two teams traded field goals to give the Rebels a 16-3 lead at halftime.Rebels offensive tackle Christian Morris was carted off the field at halftime and taken to a hospital with a neck injury that was diagnosed as a herniated disc.Wunderlich’s final field goal of the first half, a 22-yarder as time expired, came after two strange plays in a row.Rebels running back Jordan Wilkins rushed for 10 yards but was stripped of the ball as he rolled over an Aggies defender to the ground. Aggies quarterback Kyle Allen threw an interception on the next play, giving the Rebels possession on their own 24-yard line.Rebels wide receiver Laquon Treadwell caught a 58-yard touchdown for the final margin.The Rebels featured a balanced offense, posting 241 yards through the air and 230 rushing yards, the latter a season high against a Power 5 opponent.Treadwell led with 102 yards on five receptions, while Rebels running back Jaylen Walton finished with 22 carries for 97 yards, both team highs.“We haven’t been great at running the football,” Rebels head coach Hugh Freeze said. “Having Laremy back and moving everybody around gave us a comfort level. We’ll try to build on that.”Contact Daniel Paulling at dpaulling@jackson.gannett.com. Follow @DanielPaulling on Twitter.
