AK LNG Releases Gasline Workforce Plan

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska Gasline Development Corporation released their ‘Gasline Workforce Plan‘  which outlines training and educating an Alaskan workforce with the skills necessary to build and operate the Alaska LNG Project. The Alaska LNG Project Gasline Workforce Plan was unanimously approved by the Workforce Board in Seward last week. Governor Bill Walker: “Alaskans know how to build infrastructure, and state funding for public projects should employ Alaskans first.” AGDC Commissioner Heidi Drygas: “Construction of the Alaska LNG Project is hugely important to Alaska’s economy. Not only will construction provide thousands of jobs for Alaskans, but operating the Alaska LNG project will keep Alaskans working for decades to come.” The Alaska LNG Project, estimated at $43 billion, would involve an 807-mile pipeline, along with a gas treatment plant and LNG liquefaction plant, designed to move more than 20 million tons of natural gas per year. It focuses on six areas of opportunity, including training and technical education, developing apprenticeships, increasing the number of students and instructors in necessary fields, and focusing on Alaska Hire and Alaska Bidder preferences. Construction is expected to begin as early as 2019, with gas delivered by 2024-2025last_img read more

Secretaries of major government departments will also answer queries on how the government will “create an enabling ecosystem for start-ups”.Taking into account the significance of the event in promoting start-up culture in the country, it will be telecast live in all Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs), National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs) and central universities, Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) secretary Amitabh Kant told reporters.The live telecast will also be available for youth groups in over 350 districts of the country, according to Kant.Nearly 40 innovators, venture capitalists and angel investors from Silicon Valley, along with 1,500 founders of start-ups, will attend the event.Currently, India is home to 18,000 start-ups employing 3 lakh people, according to former director of Infosys TV Mohandas Pai. Pai expects the number of start-ups to increase to 1 lakh, creating 35 lakh jobs in the next 10 years.Modi, on his “Mann Ki Baat” radio programme’s telecast on 27 December last year, had announced the government would launch the action plan for “Start-up India, Stand-up India” on 16 January, 2016.”The action plan shall highlight initiatives and schemes being undertaken by the government to address various aspects relating to developing a conducive start-up ecosystem in the country,” Kant added.The formulation of the action plan is in its final stage, a government official who was a part of the drafting of the policy told Mint.”We have sent the policy to the Prime Minister’s Office. It is likely to be finalised by 10 January,” he said, requesting anonymity.The event will also witness workshops and panel discussions on topics including “Unleashing entrepreneurship and innovation: What do Indian start-ups need to grow and prosper”, “Celebrating women: Stories of innovative women entrepreneurs”, “How digitisation will change India’s future”, “Making Indian healthcare leapfrog”, “Financial inclusion is within reach” and “Show me the money: How do we capitalize entrepreneurship?””The objective is to reinforce commitment of the government towards creating an ecosystem that is conducive for growth of start-ups,” a DIPP statement said.last_img read more

first_imgSyed Iftekhar Alam SouravFormer state minister for home affairs Sohel Taj has called for the safe return of his nephew, Syed Iftekhar Alam Sourav, who was allegedly picked up on 9 June by plainclothes men over his relationship with a woman.He made the call at a press conference in the capital’s Dhaka Reporters’ Unity on Monday.Sohel Taj, son of Bangladesh’s first prime minister Tajuddin Ahmed, said that abduction is not expected in a country which was liberated for establishing democracy and justice.”Family background is not a big matter. The state will run as per rule of law and it will, hopefully, be applied equally for all. I want my nephew Sourav to come back alive and unharmed soon. That’s what I expect from the state and law enforcement,” he said to the press conference.Sourav went missing on 9 June on his way to Chattogram city’s Mimi Super Market.His mother, Syeda Yasmin Arjuman, in her written statement said, “Members of Rapid Action Battalion contacted my son in the afternoon and told him to go to the shopping centre at 7:00pm. Sourav did not come back from there. Since then, his phone has been found switched off.”When contacted, officials of RAB’s media branchs asked to send them the general diary filed for Sourav’s disappearance.Asked about Sourav’s connection with RAB, Syeda Yasmin Arjuman said that her son was in a relationship with a woman, Sauda, in 2017.”Her father forcefully married her off in 2018 but the marriage did not last long. Sauda’s father blamed Sourav for the break up and threatened my son,” she said. “On 7 February 2019 when Sourav was staying in Banani, was called to Uttara RAB office and asked to cut ties with Sauda. Banani police station officer-in-charge also threatened him with life on the same grounds on 12 February,” she added.last_img read more

No place for Talibani Hinduism says Mamata

first_imgKolkata: Coming down heavily on the BJP in connection to the Alwar lynching incident in Rajasthan, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said that steps should be taken to put an end to Talibani Hinduism.While leaving Nabanna on Monday evening, Banerjee said that instead of merely condemning the incident they (BJP) must rein in their leaders to check such incidents.”I heard Rajnathji had condemned it on the floor of Parliament during the no-confidence motion. But why they are only condemning it and not controlling their leaders at all levels. Such incidents are taking place just because of their hate campaign, and it is resulting in the loss of many lives. They must also control their MPs and MLAs in this connection,” Banerjee said.She further said: “Such incidents are taking place in the name of Hindu Taliban. Hate campaign by extremist religious groups should be stopped, and they are also taking the law into their own hands.”The Chief Minister reiterated that strict steps would be taken if anything similar happened in Bengal. “We don’t support such acts. Police have to take strong action when such violence occurs,” Banerjee said adding that measures should be taken as rumour mongers use social networking sites to spread fake news.Recalling incidents where people from Bengal were killed in other states when they went there for work, Banerjee maintained: “Our religion teaches tolerance and not to use the sword. They are defaming religion.”Stating that she respects all religions, the Chief Minister raised several questions that “If we can respect everyone why they (BJP) cannot? Why they are dividing (the country)?””We respect the cow. But we cannot condone violence over the issue,” she said after taking a dig at the BJP over the pandal collapse incident during the Prime Minister’s rally in West Midnapore.She said: “If they cannot build a pandal properly then how can they build a country?”last_img read more
