first_imgJEANNIE BILLINGS Nov. 30, 1944 – Oct. 5, 2020On December 28th, 1963, Jeannie Billings stood before God and promised to love Jim Steedle until the day she died. That promise was fulfilled on Oct. 5, 2020. Together, she and Jim shared 57 years of marriage, 2 children, and a lifetime of memories and laughter. Jeannie especially enjoyed the past 25 years as she lived the “retired life”.Jeannie was born Nov. 30, 1944 in California. When she was still a child, she moved with her parents to Los Alamos, New Mexico, so her dad could work at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. She met her husband, raised her children, and made lifelong friendships while in Los Alamos. After her retirement in 1994, she and Jim split their time between Los Alamos and Phoenix, depending on where the weather was nicest.Jeannie was welcomed into Heaven by her parents, Richard and Martha, and by her beloved son, Bobby. She is survived by her husband Jim, daughter Jackie, son-in-law Jason, grandson Koby, and sister Marlene. She is also survived by numerous other relatives, in-laws, and friends.There are no words to describe how wonderful Jeannie was, or the hole that her passing has left in our lives. We take comfort in knowing that someday, we will all be together again.Remember Jeannie and smile. She was happy, she was loved, she is missed.A funeral mass is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday, Oct, 15 at  at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Los Alamos, NM. Interment will follow immediately after at Guaje Pines Cemetery.  Please visit the memorial page for Jeannie Steedle and share your stories and condolences at: www.riverafamilyfuneralhome.com.last_img read more

Trusts

Posted in avadfeqk on September 30th, 2020

first_img Deutsche Trustee Company Ltd v Fleet Street Finance Three plc and another: Chancery Division (Mr Justice Vos): 9 September 2011 The claimant trustee company (the trustee) was the trustee under a trust deed dated 19 June 2007 (the trust deed). The first defendant company (the issuer) was the issuer of notes (the notes) divided into various classes constituted by the trust deed. The second defendant was the holder of €60m of the Class A1 notes. The notes were a species of commercial mortgage-backed securities and were subject to various terms and conditions contained in schedule 2 to the trust deed (the conditions). The issuer applied the net proceeds of the issue to purchase interests (the senior loans) in five term loans (the whole loans) secured by portfolios of properties situated in Germany and the Netherlands. The repayment of principal and interest by the borrowers under the senior loans provided the issuer with its principal source of funds to make payments under the notes, and the notes were subject to mandatory early redemption in the event that the senior loans were repaid. The issuer acquired the senior loans only in relation to the C, BS, O and the Saxony whole loans. In each case there were also junior lenders whose rights were subordinated to those of the senior lenders pursuant to individual intercreditor agreements (the Intercreditor Agreements) and there was also a facility agreement governing the terms of the senior lenders’ arrangements. In the case of the GSW senior loan there were no junior lenders, and therefore no intercreditor agreement, but the issuer acquired a 25% share in the GSW senior loan. Condition 6.2 of the conditions provided that if there was a ‘material senior default’ on one of the C, BS, O or the Saxony senior loans (a sequential payment trigger), the amounts received in respect of that particular senior loan were to be applied sequentially (trigger (ii)). A ‘material senior default’ was defined in that paragraph by reference to the relevant intercreditor agreements. Condition 6.2 also identified three further sequential payment triggers, triggers (i), (iii) and (iv) (see [33] of the judgment). Conditions 6.2(a) and 6.2(b) explained how the issuer would distribute the pro rata redemption amount and the sequential redemption amount respectively (see [30]-[32] of the judgment), before the happening of a sequential payment trigger. On 15 April 2010, the Saxony facility agreement was amended to extend the final maturity date of the S senior loan from 20 January 2011 to 13 July 2013. On 20 January, the Saxony whole loan was originally due to mature, but was not repaid due to the amendment to the Saxony facility agreement. On 15 February, the outstanding principal amount of the GSW senior loan in the sum of about €220m was prepaid in full (the prepayment). On 15 June 2011, the trustee issued proceedings, the immediate effect of which was to determine the proper recipients of the prepayment, of which some €24.47m remained to be distributed. The principal issue that fell to be determined was whether there had been a material senior default in respect of the Saxony senior loan under paragraph (ii) of the definition of sequential payment trigger in condition 6.2. The question turned on whether the amendment made to the Saxony facility agreement so as to postpone its final maturity date was to be taken into account or disregarded when construing paragraph (ii). The second defendant submitted that: there had been a material senior default of the Saxony senior loan under trigger (ii) because, even though the words in brackets in trigger (ii) did not refer expressly to the Saxony facility agreement, but only to the Saxony intercreditor agreement, they had to be taken as meaning that the question of whether there had been a material senior default had to be judged under trigger (ii) by reference to the state of affairs at the date of the issue; trigger (i) would still be activated if payment were not made by the original unamended final maturity date and, in the circumstances, it was obvious that the same fixed trigger had been intended for trigger (ii) as for trigger (i). He further submitted that, the words ‘based on’ were important in the bracketed words in trigger (ii) as they gave the whole parenthesis a broader meaning than simply referring to the intercreditor agreement, and required reference to the ‘terms’ of such intercreditor agreements as at the issue date, including the underlying facility agreement as they stood at that time, accordingly, references to the Saxony intercreditor agreement had to be taken as including a reference to the Saxony facility agreement, which had extended the final maturity date of the loan. The court held: It was established law that in order to correct a mistake by construction, two conditions had to be satisfied. First, there had to be a clear mistake on the face of the instrument. Secondly, it had to be clear what correction ought to be made in order to cure the mistake. In deciding whether there was a clear mistake the court was not confined to reading the document without regard to its background or context. Where a security document secured a number of creditors who had advanced funds over a long period, the instrument had to be interpreted as a whole in the light of the commercial intention which might be inferred from the face of the instrument and from the nature of the debtors business (see [45]-[46] of the judgment). On the evidence, there had not been a material senior default in respect of the Saxony senior loan under para (ii) of the definition of sequential payment trigger in condition 62. The second defendant’s argument was based upon the suggestion that the draftsman of the definition of sequential payment trigger had, in effect, made an obvious mistake. However, the wording of the brackets in trigger (ii) was quite clear. Looking at the contractual documentation in the round, against the relevant factual matrix, it did not seem that there had been a clear mistake on the face of the instrument; the definition might have intended a partially fixed approach in trigger (i) and a more flexible one in trigger (ii). Further, the words ‘based on’ could not expand the reference to the Intercreditor Agreements to a reference to the facility agreements as well. A material senior default had not occurred in relation to the Saxony senior loan by virtue of non payment on the original maturity date of 20 January 2011. Trigger (ii) required only amendments to the intercreditor agreements and the Saxony intercreditor agreement in particular, to be disregarded. Accordingly, trigger (ii) had not been activated in respect of the Saxony senior loan since the amended final maturity date had not been reached (see [63], [67], [71], [77] of the judgment). On the proper application and true construction of condition 6.2, the GSW funds were to be applied partly by pro rata and partly by sequential payments in accordance with conditions 6.2(a) and (b) (see [77] of the judgment).

DB Schenker coasts to Burullus

Posted in avadfeqk on September 29th, 2020

first_imgThree separate 4.8 GW natural gas-fired power stations are being built in Egypt; power will be generated by eight Siemens gas turbines and four steam turbines.The individual components include turbines, generators, transformers and boilers, with single weights up to almost 500 tons (454 tonnes). Each of the three power stations requires 248 of these components in total, says DB Schenker.The construction of the Burullus power plant is a major logistical operation with oversized and heavy components and modules arriving from around the world.These could all be received at the Port of Alexandria but transport by road to the construction site was virtually impossible with many roads and bridge crossings totally unsuited for the size and weight of the components.Mammoet together with DB Schenker and local Egyptian partner NOSCO proposed a different approach: upgrading the local Burullus fishing port which is located much closer to site.
 The fishing port was turned into a heavy lift terminal by reinforcing 125 m of quay and increasing ground bearing pressure from three to 20 tons per sq m.Key in the upgrading was the installation of Mammoet’s Terminal Crane, which has a 600-ton (544-tonne) capacity, with low ground bearing pressure which has been designed specifically to turn ports and quaysides into heavy lifting facilities.Other civil works included upgrading internal port roads, widening of the port gate, preparing 6,000 sq m of laydown area and dredging of the port basin and navigation channel from 3 to 5.5 m to allow for the draft of coaster vessels.The heavy components from European and US ports is being shipped straight to the Burullus fishing port, which is 16 km from the construction site. Parts from Asia arrive at the Port of Alexandria where they are reloaded onto smaller coaster vessels that can access the port at Burullus.DB Schenker said it expects to complete the transport operations by September 2017.n 2016, Siemens, together with local partners, started construction of the Burullus power plant – one of three 4.8 gigawatt turnkey power plants in Egypt, each of them being the biggest combined cycle power operation in the world. The mega project also includes 12 wind parks with approximately 600 wind turbines. The entire project will boost Egypt’s power generation by 50%. Upon completion, the power plants will supply 45 million Egyptians with electricity.  For the Burullus combined cycle power plant logistics, specialist DB Schenker and Mammoet joined their expertise to develop a unique concept for transport and installation of 248 heavy components, including gas turbines, steam turbines, generators, HRSG modules, condensers and transformers – all within a highly ambitious schedule.
 
The construction of the Burullus power plant is a major logistical operation with oversized and heavy components and modules arriving from around the world. These could all be received at the port of Alexandria but transport by road to the construction site was virtually impossible with many roads and bridge crossings totally unsuited for the size and weight of the components. Mammoet together with DB Schenker and local Egyptian partner NOSCO proposed a different approach: upgrading the local Burullus fishing port which is located much closer to site.
 Turning a fishing port into a heavy lift terminalMammoet and its partners upgraded the fishing port by reinforcing 125 meters of quayside and increasing ground bearing pressure from three to twenty tons per square meter to accommodate Mammoet equipment and their loads. Key in the upgrading was Mammoet’s Terminal Crane (MTC 15, 600 tons capacity), a crane with low ground bearing pressure which has been designed specifically to turn ports and quaysides into heavy lifting facilities swiftly. Other civil works included upgrading internal port roads, widening of the port gate, preparing 6,000 square meters of lay-down area and dredging of the port basin and navigation channel from 3 to 5.5 meters to allow for the draft of coaster vessels. 

Route of cargo
Components shipped from North Sea-, Mediterranean-, Black Sea- and US-ports now could be routed directly to Burullus fishing port. The HRSG-modules and condensers from the Far East, were shipped to Alexandria port, discharged and after custom clearance re-loaded into coaster vessels by Mammoet. From the fishing port, Mammoet efficiently transported the components to site and installed them at their foundation. By upgrading Burullus fishing port, and thanks to Mammoet specialized equipment, the project team was able to bypass all obstacles using a much safer and shorter route to site – meeting the ambitious schedule by significantly reducing the road transport time. The entire project is scheduled to be delivered this summer.

Honda Light Weight Super Sports concept production rumoured

Posted in avadfeqk on September 24th, 2020

first_imgRumours indicate that the Honda Light Weight Super Sports concept could enter production as the ‘Honda CBR250RR’.Another Honda rumour has gained traction on the internet once again, this time regarding the Honda Light Weight Super Sports concept that was showcased during the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show.There no doubt on the fact that the concept stood as a preview for a supposed ‘Honda CBR250RR’ model to rival against the likes of the Kawasaki Ninja 250 and Yamaha YZF-R25. Don’t be mistaken as this is not the replacement to the single-cylinder Honda CBR250R model, but instead a new parallel-twin model to go against the aforementioned Kawasaki and Yamaha rivals. (Note the extra ‘R’ in the ‘RR’ nameplate denoting a multi-cylinder model.)Honda has long been absent in the quarter-litre parallel-twin segment, allowing both the Kawasaki Ninja 250 and Yamaha YZF-R25 to thrive in emerging markets in Asia. The Honda Light Weight Super Sports concept that debuted in 2015 indicated that the mighty H-brand was about to end its absence and give both the Yamaha and Kawasaki a run for its money should it hit production.Should this rumour be true, then we can expect Honda to finally compete in the entry-level 250cc parallel-twin sportbike segment. The rumour suggests that Honda wall put the concept into production sometime in August this year.The rumour also speculated that the concept’s road-going version will not be produced in Japan, but in Honda’s other production facilities in Thailand or Indonesia instead. The move will see Honda reduce production costs significantly, thus potentially making the bike affordable in the process too.Whilst the concept, which reportedly boasted a 14,000rpm rev limit, looked stellar, you can expect the production version to undergo some changes. Besides a series of paint schemes, the model will also make do with a less intricate headlight unit, as well as the deletion of the tasty Akrapovič exhaust kit for an emissions-friendly unit, but we reckon optional Akrapovič kits will be offered too.Of course, like the rivalling Kawasaki and Yamaha, we can also expect Honda to develop a European-spec 300cc ‘CBR300RR’ offshoot as well, but this might only appear as late as 2017.Are you excited for a Honda CBR250RR? We are.Source: Visordown–Ads–last_img read more
