7th Oilfield Services Law Conference

There are no trees. Constant icy blasts of wind blow clouds of dust over the barren grassy flatlands. Welcome to Deadhorse, Alaska, population just 47, a godforsaken community on the edge of the Arctic Ocean where there are no bars, no restaurants, no bank or police force and just a single shop. Until last week, few had ever heard of this place then, last Monday, BP announced it was shutting down its Prudhoe Bay oilfield, the biggest in North America, after an oil leak led to tests which uncovered critical levels of corrosion along 16 miles of pipeline.

The news that part of the mile Trans Alaska pipeline – which carries eight per cent of America’s oil – was going rusty sent shockwaves through the world’s stock markets, causing oil prices to soar to record highs, and put Deadhorse – the frontier town that borders the oilfield – on the map. I wanted to find out what effect the closure had had on this wilderness town and the hardy souls who live there, helping BP pump , barrels of crude oil each day from beneath the Alaskan permafrost.

If, regarding Lord Lome with historical respect, I had been introduced to an unknown Lord Leatherhead, I should have respected him also as something historical.

The Nigerian dating scams target the lonely and vulnerable. The most common comment of victims who think they have found the love of their life is “I can’t believe I was so stupid! The Nigerian dating scams are hugely profitable. The Nigerians call them ‘maghas’ which is slang for gullible white people. The scammers spend their day trolling the dating sites and chat rooms for contact emails, and then send off thousands of fraudulent letters and emails awaiting the victim’s replies.

They are offering the chance of finding true love and happiness, and there are plenty of takers! However sooner or later, the vulnerable hearts receive requests that will ultimately lead to financial losses and heartbreak. The scammers choose chat rooms and dating sites because the person in love offers the chance of the biggest payoffs. How Does the Scam Work? The Nigerian dating scams are often not easy to detect as the scammers are often highly educated, have exceptional patience and they do their homework!

The scammers start by stealing a photo from an internet site.

George opposite the large Waterworks Tower that dominated that ridge. I do not allege any significance in the relation of the two buildings; and I indignantly deny that the church was chosen because it needed the whole water-power of West London to turn me into a Christian. Nevertheless, the great Waterworks Tower was destined to play its part in my life, as I shall narrate on a subsequent page; but that story is connected with my own experiences, whereas my birth as I have said is an incident which I accept, like some poor ignorant peasant, only because it has been handed down to me by oral tradition.

And before we come to any of my own experiences, it will be well to devote this brief chapter to a few of the other facts of my family and environment which I hold equally precariously on mere hearsay evidence. Of course what many call hearsay evidence, or what I call human evidence, might be questioned in theory, as in the Baconian controversy or a good deal of the Higher Criticism. The story of my birth might be untrue.

In a paper to the journal Molecular Ecology, a team of scientists from the Zoological Society of London and University of Zurich published their data on the foxes living in the Swiss city of Zurich.

Share 73 shares As part of our review we assembled a database of cases that is, to our knowledge, the fullest drawn up to date. We hope it will inform citizens about the subject and stimulate scientific research into how to manage this very new challenge to human ingenuity. The word ‘fracking’ comes from the term ‘hydraulic fracturing’. It is also known as ‘fraccing’ and ‘fracing’. Water, sand and chemicals are piped into shale rock formations deep underground. Shale is a fine-grained sedimentary rock made up of mud that is a mixture of clay minerals and tiny fragment particles of other minerals, such as quartz and calcite.

The high pressure injection causes the rock to fracture, creating fissures along which previously trapped gas can flow and be extracted. The sand and the chemicals help keep the fractures open and lubricated. The first experimental use of hydraulic fracturing was in and the first commercially successful uses were in Our survey showed mining-related activity accounts for the largest number of cases in our database. Initially, mining technology was primitive.

Mines were small and relatively shallow. Collapse events would have been minor — though this might have been little comfort to anyone caught in one. But modern mines exist on a totally different scale.

Why Workplace Safety Is Important

Questions and Answers Evolution and Early Distribution: The evolution of carnivorans appears to have been a gradual process that happened in both North America and Eurasia, making it difficult to infer when it all started. Nonetheless, taxonomists those who study how species are related to each other currently think that the carnivorans evolved from animals called miacids, which were small tree-living mammals that looked similar to modern-day civets.

At some point — by current thinking, around 42 million years ago mya , during the mid-Eocene — it appears that the carnivorans split into the two groups, or suborders, that we recognise as cat-like Feliformia and dog-like Caniformia. The evolutionary history of the dog family is still not completely resolved and may never be, as new fossil finds and molecular techniques offer new insights , but the following is a generally accepted hypothesis.

Briefly, the creature that taxonomists currently think gave rise to modern-day dogs was a medium-sized about the size of a coyote grassland predator of North America called Prohesperocyon wilsoni that appeared during the late Eocene, some 36 mya. The caniforms subsequently diverged into three lineages which we call subfamilies: During the late Miocene, around 10 mya, something important happened: This radiation was probably in response to a vacant niche opening up as the borophagines started to die-out, and not only marked the birth of all the dog species we know today but also heralded the appearance of three modern-day genera in the south-western USA:

North Central Kansas Technical College In , Kansas legislation was passed, which provided vocational-technical education. Senate Bill , in conjunction with the National Education Act SB , approved the establishment of sixteen vocational-technical schools and nineteen community colleges in the state of Kansas. Classes began in the fall of with five programs being offered.

The same locations, the same quality education, but a new name with new directions was designed to enhance the educational opportunities for the region. Our Hays Campus was established in and traditionally provided technical education to students in Ellis and surrounding counties.

From time-to-time, however, large foxes are recovered.

Sujeet Shenoi, University of Tulsa 8th March Houston, Texas This case-study-based workshop discusses techniques for attacking a number of interconnected critical infrastructure assets, in particular, Internet and IP networks, telecommunications networks, banking networks, oil and gas pipelines, coal mines, wind farms, and power distribution systems. Emphasis is placed on understanding and defending the information technology, industrial control system and physical system layers of critical infrastructure assets.

We will also highlight the importance of designing and implementing security solutions that weave science, technology and policy. Sujeet Shenoi is the F.

If someone were to ask you why safety is important, how would you respond? You may “know” that it’s important to keep safety in mind as we go about your daily activities, but how would you explain the reasons why this is the case. Here are some things to think about. Why Safety Is Important in the Workplace Companies that employ workers have an interest in keeping the workplace safe. Job-related injuries are something that responsible employers avoid.

They take the time and use company resources to make sure that the people who come to work each day are safe.

It was typical of him that, in the Pugin period he had worked at Gothic illumination; but when he tried again, it was in another style of the dark Dutch renaissance, the grotesque scroll-work that suggests woodcarving more than stone-cutting.
