(Photo by Jamie Squire/Getty Images)Auburn superfan Tammy Bullard, one of the most famous regular callers to The Paul Finebaum Show, was tragically killed late last week.Bullard and her three-year old granddaughter were involved in a deadly crash with a commercial vehicle. From AL.com:Alabama State Trooper Cpl. Jimmy Harrell said the driver of a commercial vehicle carrying some kind of explosive material was traveling eastbound when he possibly blew a tire and the truck overturned on its side.It then veered into oncoming traffic in the westbound lane and collided with an SUV carrying the woman and the infant. Both have been confirmed dead. The truck driver was flown to UAB Hospital’s Trauma Center.Both Paul Finebaum and fellow SEC Network personality Laura Rutledge attended the funeral for Tammy Bullard.While in attendance, Finebaum delivered a message from Terry Saban, Alabama head coach Nick Saban’s wife..@finebaum & @LauraMRutledge attended memorial service for Tammy Bullard today.Paul: “Terry Saban called me to offer condolences from her & her husband.”Prayers to an @AuburnFootball family from @AlabamaFTBL 1st lady #Classyhttps://t.co/6PjdBa0Dbx@GregSankey @SECNetwork pic.twitter.com/olPt0UL9hp— Rick Karle (@RickKarle) November 21, 2018More on Finebaum’s appearance, from WBRC’s Rick Karle:“It was very thoughtful of Paul Finebaum & Laura Rutledge of the SEC Network to attend today’s memorial service in Columbiana, AL for Finebaum caller Tammy Renae Bullard & Tammy’s 3-year-old granddaughter (both Paul & Laura wanted to be there without fanfare). When something like this happens, Tide & Tiger fans unite, and a perfect example comes from the Southeastern Conference star himself: Paul says that he received a call over the weekend from Terry Saban. Miss Terry passed along condolences from both herself & Nick, & told Paul that they were there for Tammy’s family. Prayers to the world’s biggest Auburn Tigers fan from the Alabama Football first lady. That, my friend, is what class is all about. RIP Tammy- I hope Paul’s heartfelt words helped ease some of the pain of your family members, and remember that both Tide & Tiger fans are praying for you & those who love you. Here’s a big “War Eagle” to you!”That is a very nice gesture by Finebaum. His callers are a huge part of what makes his show a unique entity down in SEC country, and Tammy was one of the two or three staples in those ranks. Finebaum would probably be the first to tell you that.
Wrapping up an official visit to the country, Gulnara Shahinian, the UN Special Rapporteur on contemporary forms of slavery, urged authorities to take more vigorous measures to fully implement the laws and policies.“The adoption of the road map for the implementation of my previous recommendations is a clear sign that Mauritania is on its way to eradicate slavery and its remnants once and for all,” said Ms. Shahinian at the end of her follow-up visit to the country to access new developments and initiatives taken in response to previous recommendations.“I am sure that the 6 of March 2014, when the Government will adopt formally the road map, this will mark a turning point in the fight against slavery in country,” she added ahead of presenting her findings and further recommendations to the UN Human Rights Council in September.The Special Rapporteur called the passing of the law criminalizing slavery in 2007 a “milestone” and a “major achievement” for the country’s efforts to eradicate slavery practices, and noted that under the constitutional reform introduced in 2012, persons convicted of slavery can be sentenced to up to ten years in prison.She also noted that a number of legislative efforts launched in 2011 towards securing the rights of housemaids and domestic workers are an important element in the fight against slavery, but highlighted that “concerted action is required to fully realize their human rights.” Ms. Shahinian stressed the need to ensure targeted and tailored solutions for former slaves in order to avoid that the eradication of the vestiges of slavery become incorporated in more general programmes on poverty alleviation. “A prerequisite for the efficiency of these programmes is reliable information which is currently lacking, and that is why an urgent need exists to provide detailed and precise data, statistics and a thorough study,” she noted.Special Rapporteurs serve in an independent and unpaid capacity and report to the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council, by whom they are appointed.
Weir Minerals Africa has expanded its Cavex® hydrocyclone footprint across Africa with its most two recent orders going into the Central African Copperbelt; one in Zambia and one in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Sheldon Gabriel, Product Manager – cyclones at Weir Minerals Africa, says the hydrocyclone solutions supplied in these two countries were customised for the individual plants.A major differentiator that Weir Minerals Africa brings to its customers is the ability to assess individual application requirements and provide a tailored solution. “It is not just about providing an off-the-shelf product. The company has a full team of experienced process and metallurgical engineers who look at how to best optimise the process for the customer. The major focus is on achieving the most efficient separation with the lowest total cost of ownership.”The hydrocyclone cluster to be installed at the Zambian copper mine is an 18-way Cavex 400 CVX cluster in a mill circuit classification application. A 2-way Cavex 500CVX hydrocyclone will also be supplied for use in a densifying application at the plant. For the process plant in the DRC, Weir Minerals Africa is supplying a 14-way Cavex 500CVX hydrocyclone cluster for the SAG mill application. In this particular instance, the solution was designed to allow for future additional capacity, saving the customer future capex. The company is also supplying a 2-way Cavex 500 CVX cluster for a limestone application at this mine.Gabriel says that an important contributing factor for customers is that the significant Cavex hydrocyclone footprint in this region is supported through Weir Minerals Africa’s Zambian branch and Service Centre in Kitwe, Zambia. This comprehensive facility was expanded earlier in the year and has increased the spare (after market) parts inventory it holds, as well as expanded its process engineering support team based at the branch.In addition to the recent orders across South Africa’s borders, Weir Minerals has also expanded Cavex technology into dense medium applications with significant benefits being provided to the customers. Gabriel points to installations in diamond mining where Cavex dense media cyclones are achieving far longer wear life than competitor units, and this is in addition to proven higher efficiencies.“Test work undertaken by our customer using tracers highlighted that Ep values were on average 0.038, which was below the set maximum Ep target of 0.08 from the mine. Cut points achieved during test work revealed a 3,08 t/m3 cut point, which met the customer specified performance target of 3,1 t/m3,” he explains.Cavex dense media cyclones were operational for fifteen months without failure and achieved an additional 36% tonnage throughput over and above the target set by the mine. Gabriel says that this highlights the benefit of the Cavex laminar spiral inlet as compared to conventional involute and tangential cyclone inlet designs.Gabriel also reports that in a coal DMS application a Cavex 500 CVXT20 dense media cyclone recently replaced a 610 mm competitor unit on a coal washing plant. Here, a production yield increase of 15% was achieved, as well as a major wear life increase of 50%.“This translated into real bottom line savings for the customer, as the plant was able to reduce maintenance and improve production output,” he says. Based on these successes, the customer placed an order for another Cavex 500 CVXT20 for its second wash plant.“The rationale behind the decision from both mines was based on the performance and reliability that the Cavex hydrocyclones are already achieving in similar applications in this region,” he says. “Adding to this is the high level of service and technical support that Weir Minerals Africa is able to provide through its branch network.”“Cavex hydrocyclones have proven themselves in a heavy mineral sands application with a customer in Mozambique who placed an order for 28 classification hydrocyclones,” Gabriel says. “Again, this order followed successful test work conducted on site which highlighted the benefits of the laminar spiral inlet. This design improved classification efficiency and reduced losses of saleable product to the cyclone overflow. The results emphasised the lower total cost of ownership which could be achieved using Cavex hydrocyclones in these applications.”Cavex hydrocyclones have been supplied to a heavy minerals sand project in Sierra Leone. This forms part of a phase two expansion project at this mineral sands processing plant, and increases the Cavex hydrocyclone installed base in the West African region.Weir Minerals Africa supplied Cavex 500CVX hydrocyclones to a large copper operation in Limpopo. These hydrocyclones will replace the existing 660 mm competitor hydrocyclones on the plant’s primary mill classification circuit. Gabriel says Cavex hydrocyclone technology was selected by the plant to improve efficiencies and optimise the mill circuit operation.“Technical product and process support from Weir Minerals Africa plays an important role in providing invaluable support to the end-user. Regular interaction with the experts at Weir Minerals Africa provides customers with access to the latest technological developments and learnings from similar installations in Africa and across the globe.”
The news PSG Handball coach Zvonimir Noka Serdarusic doesn’t waste his time on his new job. Newcomer from Denmark is experienced left back, but mainly defensive specialist Henrik Mollgaard who signed contract for the upcoming season. The 30 years-old Danish NT member has great experience of playing for the national team since 2013, but also in his domestic team Skjern, with whom he won three times national Championship.Mollgaard will mainly cover the empty space due injury of William Accambray, who will be out for a while. henrik mollgaardPSG Handball ← Previous Story Fifth fantastic goalkeeper’s summer was held in Makarska Next Story → VELUX EHF CL 2015/2016 draw tonight – Barca and Kiel lead the pots
