first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: Teekay Corporation/Flickr Owner and operator of LNG carriers Teekay LNG Partners has secured a new charter contract for its LNG carrier, the 2009-built Magellan Spirit.The 3-year fixed-rate contract, secured with an integrated oil and gas company, is scheduled to commence during the summer of 2019.Concurrently, Teekay LNG extended the in-charter of the Magellan Spirit until the summer of 2022.With this deal “the partnership’s LNG carrier fleet is approximately 97, 93 and 92 percent fixed for the remainder of this year, 2020 and 2021, respectively, which further supports Teekay LNG’s expected earnings growth and continued deleveraging profile over the next few years,” Mark Kremin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Teekay Gas Group Ltd, said.Furthermore, Teekay GP LLC, the general partner of Teekay LNG Partners, has declared a cash distribution of USD 0.19 per common unit for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, representing a 36 percent increase over the previous quarter’s distribution.“Our new annual distribution of USD 0.76 per unit is supported by our diverse portfolio of long-term fixed-rate LNG contracts. Importantly, our new distribution level strikes a balance between providing a meaningful increase in returns to our unitholders, while simultaneously allowing Teekay LNG to continue along its existing delevering path,” Kremin added.last_img read more

The Ed Asner Center represents unleashing creativity, and what better way of illustrating this than the world of comics?”Matt Asner said the core values and programming of the Center are based around creation of an environment that shows the limitless potential of children with different levels of ability, including autism, Down syndrome and developmental delays. “The arts are so important for instilling self confidence in people,” he said.Matt Asner still remembers his father taking him to newsstands and bookstores while his father was a star on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. “I still remember the first comic book my father ever bought me,” Matt Asner said. “It was an Avengers reprint from 1970. He sees the great, creative atmosphere around comics. He gets it. He saw the creativity, the art and writing involved, and appreciated it.“We are honored to have 70 pieces of original art from some of the brightest stars in comics in this special auction that we feel could only be done through Heritage,” Asner adds.Artists donated both individual work and collaborations, including:Alex Ross; Adam Kubert, Tom Derenick, Danny Miki, Scott Hanna and Lary Stucker; Brent Anderson; Adam Hughes; Colleen Doran; Barry Crain; Dan Jurgens; Karine Charlebois; Cully Hamner; Eric Powell; Geof Darrow; Jerry Ordway; Jim Lee; Tom Raney and Scott Hanna; Jim Valentino and Steve Montano; José Luis García-López; Kelley Jones and Kevin Nowlan; John Cassaday; Mark Bagley and Andrew Hennessy; John Heebink and Aaron McClellan; Phil Hester; John Heebink and Fred Fredericks; Howard Chaykin; José Luis García-López; Lee Weeks; Karl Kesel; Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz; Michael Allred; Aaron Lopresti; Eduardo Risso; John Romita Jr.; Michael Cho; Barry Kitson; Bobby Rubio; Mike Hawthorne; Philip Tan; Steve Lieber, Mark McKenna and Robin Riggs; Mike Norton; Nicoletta Ceccoli; Ryan Sook; Ryan Stegman; Sandy Jarrell; Fernando Pasarin and Scott Hanna; Howard Porter and John Dell; Tom Everhart; Shawn Martinbrough; Adam Kubert; Sanford Greene; Sam Kieth; Jeff Parker; Tom Derenick; Mostafa Moussa; Danny Miki; Chris Samnee; Scott Hanna and Lary Stucker; Charles Schulz; Paul Pelletier and Sandra Hope; Bill Sienkiewicz; Igor Kordey and Scott Hanna; Paul Smith; Fabio Napoleoni; John Heebink and Don Hudson; Kelley Jones; Scot Eaton and Andrew Hennessy and Kevin Nowlan.“We are very thankful for the contributions of these artists and the time and friendship of Kevin Nowlan,” Matt Asner said. “Kevin was Superman, Batman and Doctor Strange on this project. We also wish to thank Albert Moy, Spencer Beck, Animazing Gallery and Kurt Busiek for their contributions, as well.”Select highlights include, Nowlan’s original cover art to Doctor Strange #19 (Marvel, 2017), the original cover art by Lee from Scooby Apocalypse #3 (DC, 2016) and variant cover original art by Cassaday for Captain America: Reborn #6 (Marvel, 2003), published in the popular six-issue series.Bidding opens Oct. 3 for The Ed Asner Family Center Original Comic Art Charity Auction and concludes Oct. 17 at HA.com/Asner.

CES Transportation secretary skips show amid gov shutdown

first_imgLAS VEGAS — The CES 2019 gadget show is revving up in Las Vegas. Here are the latest findings and observations from Associated Press reporters on the ground.THIS SHOW WON’T GO ONThe Trump administration has some ideas about the future of commercial drones and self-driving technology, but it won’t be sharing them at CES this week amid an ongoing partial government shutdown.CES organizers say U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao has cancelled a planned Wednesday keynote address at the Las Vegas tech conference.Her decision to skip the event came several days after Ajit Pai, the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, and several other scheduled federal government speakers told CES they wouldn’t be coming because of the shutdown.Chao had planned to speak about U.S. policies affecting drones and self-driving vehicles.FRESH BREAD, NO BAKERThat smell wafting through the CES show? Freshly baked bread.Wilkinson Baking Co. unveiled a 22-foot machine that can bake 10 loaves of bread every hour — no baker needed. But a human is needed to dump the ingredients into the machine, which then mixes them, forms the dough and starts baking. Someone also needs to slice the bread, although the company says it’s working on a way for the machines to do that, too.The BreadBot, as it’s called, is being pitched to supermarkets as a way to deliver fresh bread to shoppers who are increasingly worried about the ingredients in their foods. The machine is all glass, so customers can watch bread get made. They then select the loaf they want on a touch screen, sort of like a vending machine.Three local supermarkets are already testing it. The company says a couple of big chains have agreed to try it out soon, but it won’t say which.SMART BRAIs your bra dumb? An underwear company is pitching a solution to an age-old problem for women: finding a bra that actually fits.In the past, women could get help from an expert human in finding their right size. A simple measuring tape wouldn’t do, as it doesn’t reflect other factors such as the shape of a woman’s breasts. But these old-school “bra fitters” are hard to find these days.To address that, a company called Soma has added some circuits to a brassiere and connected it to an app.The Soma Innofit has four lines of circuitry hooked up to a circuit board in the back, which then connects to an app via Bluetooth. The smart $59 bra then recommends a bra — from Soma’s line, of course.The smart bra isn’t meant for regular wearing, though it could be used again if sizes change because of pregnancy or other factors. The company says people who don’t want to buy one can use it at a Soma store.CASH FOR KIDSHow do you teach children the value of money when there is no cash around?Pigzbe is offering an electronic cash device with a digital currency called Wollo. It connects to an app that explains how money is earned and spent. Parents can set tasks that children complete to receive Wollo currency.Trouble comes when your kid tries to spend Wollo at a store. The currency needs to be connected to a card to spend as real money in the real world.And to get Pigzbe, parents also have to fork out some real money — $99.___AP video journalist Jona Kallgren contributed to this report.Matt O’Brien And Joseph Pisani, The Associated Presslast_img read more
