Which football shirts have the most different animals on them?

first_img“During Oxford United’s Carabao Cup tie against Manchester City, I noticed their shirts displayed four different animals: ox, puma, dragon and bull,” writes Michael Sedor. Dragon? “Has there ever been a team’s jersey with a more diverse menagerie?”If we were to allow mythical beasts to count as animals then Oxford’s shirt did indeed contain four: an ox on the club crest, a ‘dragon’ as part of the shirt sponsor, a puma (the kit manufacturer) and, to be 100% accurate, a water buffalo as part of the Carabao logo on the sleeves. Marcus McMasterFloat (@MaracasFlute)@TheKnowledge_GU Watching Final Score, I noticed Aberdeen’s logo neatly contains an A formed from a ball entering a goal, viewed from the side. It struck me, considering the action of scoring is pretty fundamental, I hadn’t seen many badges showing goals being scored…. (1/2)September 29, 2018 The Coventry City 2013-14 side can claim a particularly eclectic five, though two of them are not real. You have the elephant, griffin and phoenix on the club crest (obviously), the ubiquitous puma and an octopus on that season’s shirt sponsor, the Grace Research Fund.When Barnsley were beaten 3-1 by Blackpool in the Carabao Cup this season, the Tykes could also boast five: a falcon, a boar (there are two but they only count as one type), the water buffalo (sponsor), a griffin (mythical) and a puma (kit). There are two stoic-looking men on the club crest too, a miner and a glassmaker. And depending on whether you believe humans are just souped-up animals or not, at a stretch you could say there are six.But, if we’re going to be strict about the definition of an animal then Burnley trump the lot with five different creatures (none of which are fictitious) on their shirts during League Cup games. They’re helped out by three on the club crest – bees, a stork and a lion, while the kit is made by Puma and the sponsor’s water buffalo rounds out the menagerie.Can any team beat that?

So, on the eve of the now infamous England quarter-final, an Argentinian FA employee was sent out to scour local sports shops to find something more suitable. When he returned with a preferable set of shirts, two seamstresses were employed to sew on the badges and, according to Maradona, by the time their kit man Tito Benros had ironed the silver, sparkly numbers on to 38 shirts: “He looked like he should have been at carnival, not at Azteca Stadium.’”Knowledge archive“Which player has scored the most goals in games that were subsequently abandoned?” asked Roland Tye in December 2009.Many of you emailed in to point out that in 1961 Denis Law scored six goals for Manchester City in an FA Cup tie against Luton, before the game was abandoned with City leading 6-0.

The home kit was little better as it looked like a Tesco carrier bag with Nobo emblazoned across the chest.”Ed Barrett adds: “Borussia Dortmund produced their own kits in the early noughties. From about 2000 till 2005 they had various dull designs from a company called Goool. That company in turn belonged to the BVB group but was sold at some point (probably as the club was busy going near on bankrupt).”And there’s more. Alan Cormack, take it away: “Roma wore a bespoke kit for the 2013-14 season. Their new American owners decided that the quality of their existing Kappa kits was substandard (although the suspicion remains that they simply wanted a more high profile brand associated with the club) so they tore up their contract and agreed a deal with Nike. This did not commence until summer 2014 however so in the interim the club produced their own kit. What makes this instance perhaps unique however, is the fact that, in the absence of a shirt sponsor, the shirts were frequently emblazoned with slogan of the club’s associated charity, Roma Cares. So not only was the Roma shirt that season manufactured by the club, it was also sponsored by the club.

New Panama Canal Brings US LNG Closer to Asia

first_imgzoom The newly expanded Panama Canal has significant implications for LNG trade, reducing travel time and transportation costs for LNG shipments from the US Gulf Coast to key markets in Asia and providing additional access to previously regionalized LNG markets, according to US Energy Information Administration (EIA).Furthermore, the canal will be able to accommodate 90 percent of the world’s current liquefied natural gas (LNG) tankers with LNG-carrying capacity up to 3.9 billion cubic feet (Bcf), while, prior to the expansion, only 30 of the smallest LNG tankers with capacities up to 0.7 Bcf, which make up 6 percent of the current global fleet, could transit the canal.With the new locks, which provide access to a wider lane for vessels, only the 45 largest LNG vessels, 4.5-Bcf to 5.7-Bcf capacity Q-Flex and Q-Max tankers used for exports from Qatar, will not be able to use the expanded canal.Transit through the Panama Canal will considerably reduce voyage time for LNG from the US Gulf Coast to markets in northern Asia.A transit from the US Gulf Coast through the Panama Canal to Japan will reduce voyage time to 20 days, compared to 34 days for voyages around the southern tip of Africa or 31 days if transiting through the Suez Canal. Voyage time to South Korea, China, and Taiwan will also be reduced by transiting through the Panama Canal.Additionally, the new canal will cut the travel time from the US Gulf Coast to South America, declining from 20 days to 8-9 days to Chilean regasification terminals, and from 25 days to 5 days to prospective terminals in Colombia and Ecuador.In addition to shortening transit times, using the Panama Canal will also reduce transportation costs, EIA informs.Transit costs through the Panama Canal for an average 3.5 Bcf LNG carrier are estimated at USD 0.20 per million British thermal units (MMBtu) for a round-trip voyage, representing about 9 percent to 12 percent of the round-trip voyage cost to countries in northern Asia.Currently, about 9.2 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of US natural gas liquefaction capacity is either in operation or under construction in the United States. By 2020, the United States is set to become the world’s third-largest LNG producer, after Australia and Qatar, according to EIA.last_img read more

Chandrayaan2 to reach moons orbit on August 20 ISRO

first_imgAhmedabad: India’s second moon mission ‘Chandrayaan-2’ is expected to reach the moon’s orbit on August 20 and land on the lunar surface on September 7, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chairman Dr K Sivan said on Monday. The spacecraft is all set to leave the earth’s orbit after two days, he told reporters here. Sivan was on the city to take part in the birth centenary celebrations of Dr Vikram Sarabhai, regarded as the father of India’s space programme. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details The 3,850-kg Chandrayaan-2, a three-module spacecraft comprising orbiter, lander and rover, which was launched on July 22, would make a landing on the moon on September 7, the ISRO chief said. “After launching Chandrayaan-2 on July 22, we did five maneuvers. The Chandrayaan-2 composite body is now revolving around the earth,” he said. The next very important and crucial maneuver will happen on Wednesday morning. “At around 3.30 am on August 14, we are going to have a maneuver called trans-lunar injection. By this maneuver, the Chandrayaan-2 will leave the earth and move towards the moon. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday On August 20, we will be reaching the moon,” he said. “Then, we will be carrying out lunar orbit insertion. By this process, the Chandrayaan-2 will be around the moon on August 20. Subsequently, we have planned to have a series of maneuvers around the moon and finally on September 7, we will be landing on the moon near its south pole,” he added. Sivan said the spacecraft was “doing very well” at present and all its systems were functioning properly. He said scientists at the ISRO will be busy in coming months, particularly in December when the space agency would take up a mission to launch small satellites. “In December, we are going to have a very important mission. It’s a small satellite launcher. This is for the first time we are going to have this mission,” he said.last_img read more

Lack of pipelines cost Canada billions in lost revenue

first_imgCanada is leaving billions of dollars on the table due to a lack of pipeline capacity.Those are the findings of a report from the University of Calgary’s School of Public Policy.The price differential of Western Canadian Select (WCS) relative to West Texas Intermediate (WTI) reflects the lower quality of WCS and transportation costs, but pipeline capacity constraints have dramatically increased the discount to historical levels.Research Associate Kent Fellows said prior to 2013, the WCS/WTI discount generally stayed between nine and 13 per cent of the WTI price but as of February 2, 2018, the differential is at 47 per cent.“The historical differential when we still had some excess capacity was sort of in the range of $10 to $15, maybe a little bit higher than that, but the current one is close to $40 so a pretty big difference,” he said.Fellows explained the larger discount means Alberta is getting lower revenues for each barrel of heavy crude exported, costing the provincial government $6.60 on every barrel of heavy oil exported to the U.S, which is an annual loss of $7.2 billion.Private companies are missing out on $5.3 billion and the federal government is leaving $800 million on the table.Fellows argued this shows why governments need to push for pipelines that are in the public interest.last_img read more

Wynne promises unspecified relief for businesses amid planned minimum wage hikes

Premier Kathleen Wynne said Friday she is working on ideas to support Ontario businesses through major labour reforms, suggesting she is looking more at offsetting unrelated costs than pulling back the labour changes themselves.Many businesses and business groups have voiced opposition to the changes, in particular a plan to boost the minimum wage to $14 on Jan. 1 and to $15 in 2019. They have said a 32 per cent increase in less than 18 months will be tough to absorb.Loblaw Companies Ltd. (TSX:L) said this week that minimum wage increases in Ontario and Alberta would hurt its bottom line, estimating the wage hikes would mean its labour costs will grow by about $190 million next year.Ontario’s minimum wage increase is included in proposed legislation along with equal pay for part-time workers, increased vacation entitlements and expanded personal emergency leave.After participating in a roundtable discussion on labour in Windsor, Ont., Friday, Wynne said she has heard businesses’ concerns as committee hearings on the bill have travelled the province this month.“I have committed to bringing forward some proposals in the fall that would support business in ways that, as I say, will allow them to go through this transition,” she said.Wynne wouldn’t divulge specifics of what she is planning, but mentioned that restaurant owners in particular have cited fees they pay to the Liquor Control Board of Ontario as an issue.“There are a number of suggestions that are coming forward,” she said. “We’re looking at everything.”Economic Development Minister Brad Duguid has also suggested Ontario was looking at reducing other costs for businesses to help them cope with the labour changes.“We’re also going to be offsetting some of those costs with initiatives like either eliminating or reducing fees that businesses pay to government for some of the services that they require,” he said earlier this month.“So my expectation is we’re going to work doubly hard on reducing regulatory burden to help some of those businesses that may have some challenge adjusting.”A coalition of business groups including the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, Restaurants Canada and the Canadian Franchise Association have complained about the “arbitrary” minimum wage increase.“Many Ontario employers, especially small businesses, are now considering closing their business because they do not have the capacity to successfully manage such reforms,” they wrote to Wynne earlier this month.Business groups had been calling for the government to first perform an economic analysis, and have now commissioned their own, which the coalition said will be complete next month. read more

The new appointment increases the role Mr. Harris will play in helping to set policy direction for the growing award-winning firm with more than $9 billion in assets under administration and offices in Nassau, Bahamas and The Cayman Islands.   Mr. Harris, who also serves as director on other boards of Sterling, was recently named Canada’s number one premier since 1981, topping a field of 80, including four sitting premiers.  The honour was based on leadership, economic policies and organizational skills with votes tallied on actual results in job growth, balanced budgets and business investment. “Mike has been an excellent director in his previous roles, showing the leadership skills, discipline, wisdom and insight that made him so well-liked as well as highly respected when he was premier of a region with a population of over 13 million,” said David Kosoy, Sterling Chairman and CEO. “We are pleased that he has agreed to expand the position he will play going forward as Sterling Bank & Trust continues to recognize promising opportunities for growth on behalf of our more than 1500 high net worth clients.” Mr. Harris, the former Member of Provincial Parliament and Premier, currently serves as a senior business advisor in the Corporate/Commercial and Government Relations & Ethics Groups at the Law Firm of Fasken Martineau in Toronto, Ontario.

More Europe new interline agreements in store for Transat in 2017

first_imgMore Europe, new interline agreements in store for Transat in 2017 TORONTO — After announcing details of its new 2017 Europe and Guided Tours brochures last week, Transat hosted an industry reception in Toronto to highlight the changes in its Europe program from 2016, as well as Air Transat’s plans to adopt interline agreements in the near future.Denise Heffron, VP National Sales & Commercial, told media and industry partners that the company has recently gone through a process she refers to as “refinement.” After working with analysts for three months during which Transat evaluated its valued relationships, Transat found that there’s room for improvement in the way it sells travel.“We wanted to make sure that we’re maximizing what we’re doing so that we can be better,” she said. “We asked ourselves, ‘Are we working with the right partners at the right time with the right product?’ You’ll find that we’re going to be working more closely with you from now in, particularly with regard to marketing.”More news:  Consolidation in the cruise industry as PONANT set to acquire Paul Gauguin CruisesPart of this self-evaluation included Transat’s recent streamlining of brands.

For example, Air Transat currently does not fly to Athens from Montreal or Toronto, but “in the future we can with interline partners,” said Ringwald.More news:  Air Canada’s global sales update includes Managing Director, Canada & USA SalesRingwald confirmed that interlining will begin in 2017 and will be firmly in place by November 2017.In 2016, Air Transat offered direct flights to 27 destinations in 13 countries, from five Canadian cities.
