Craig ‘Crowie’ Alexander joins ATEC Show as ambassador

first_imgFormer IRONMAN World Champion, Craig ‘Crowie’ Alexander will be attending the third edition of Australia’s Triathlon Endurance and Cycling Show (ATEC) this September as an official ATEC Ambassador. In addition, Crowie will be bringing Sansego, his coaching platform and training community led by his personal team of coaches.Crowie is a three-time IRONMAN World Champion (2008, 2009, 2011), 2 x IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion (2006, 2011) and three-time Australian Long Course Champion (2010, 2006, 2004). Crowie has also received multiple prestigious sports awards and, perhaps most meaningfully, was lauded as ‘the first true men’s champion the sport has seen in years’ by none other than IRONMAN legend and six-time World Champion Dave Scott.“The ATEC team are delighted to have the support of Crowie and Sansego for the third edition of the show,” said Vanessa Maniatis, Exhibition Director of ATEC. “Crowie is highly regarded within the triathlon community and his involvement will be a huge drawcard for visitors and exhibitors alike.”During the ATEC weekend, Crowie will take part in a 45-minute Q&A session on the show’s main stage, two ‘meet & greet’ sessions and live coaching workshops presented by Sansego.“Endurance sports fans know Crowie best for his world champion titles and legendary performances at triathlon’s most prestigious races,” added Crowie’s Sansego partner Franko Vatterott. “But what they don’t always get a glimpse of is the mind-set in which he approaches training, racing and life balance. This is a major philosophy behind the Sansego brand, which can be universally applied to any athlete of any level. We are thrilled to partner with ATEC and excited to meet endurance athletes in September.”ATEC’s new show format is taking shape and a number endurance experts and enthusiasts have signed to become an ATEC Ambassador. In addition to Crowie, Pete Jacobs, IRONMAN Triathlon World Champion in 2012, as well as ultra-marathon Pat Farmer, and professional cyclist Henk Vogels are confirmed as official ATEC Ambassadors.

NMR&LD: Two Businessmen Guilty Of Securities Fraud

first_img“This verdict sends a clear message to other fraudsters out there that the State of New Mexico will not tolerate criminals preying on the citizens of New Mexico” Salazar said. “We are very pleased with the jury’s verdict in this case because it demonstrates the Securities Division’s commitment to ensuring New Mexicans are provided with full and complete information about investments in advance of any offer or sale. Those who seek to raise money in New Mexico must follow the law or be held accountable,” Securities Division Director Matthew Bouillon Mascareñas said. Schult and Hixon were convicted of Fraud over $20,000, Securities Fraud, Conspiracy to Commit Fraud, Sale of an Unregistered Security, and Sale of Security by an Unlicensed Agent. NMR&LD News: A joint investigation by the Securities Division of the New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department, the Texas State Securities Board, and the Travis County Sheriff’s Office revealed that Schult was in fact misappropriating investors’ money for personal use and to pay commissions to Hixon for his collaboration in the scheme. The case was prosecuted by the Securities Division of the New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department and the Office of the Third Judicial District Attorney. Schult used his companies – American Radio Empire, Inc. and American Wireless and Entertainment, Inc. – to recruit local individuals like Hixon who had experience in the radio industry in order to solicit investments from unsuspecting friends, enticing them with illusory offers of future employment. Schult and Hixon led investors to believe that the money they raised was being used to pay for services aimed at funding an initial public offering of Schult’s company. Additionally, Schult and Hixon told investors that the money from the sale of promissory notes would be used to purchase smaller radio stations around the United States and put them on the internet. SANTA FE ― New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department Superintendent Marguerite Salazar announced Monday that Dain Leslie Schult of Austin, Texas and Joel McKay Hixon of Las Cruces have been found guilty of defrauding New Mexico investors in a Pyramid scheme that promised to use investors’ money to promote “mom and pop” radio stations on the internet. The Regulation and Licensing Department’s Securities Division protects New Mexicans from fraud and financial abuse by licensing investment professionals, registering securities offering made in the state, offering anti-fraud and educational programs to the public, and investigating fraud and other violations of the state securities laws.

Rolls-Royce’s module handling system for ‘Aker Wayfarer’

first_imgRolls-Royce has signed a major contract to supply a complete module handling system to the subsea construction vessel Aker Wayfarer. The vessel was built by Vard Søviknes in 2010 and will now undergo project modification work at Kleven’s Myklebust Verft yard in Norway. The contract is with Ocean Yield ASA, and the vessel is under long term charter with AKOFS Offshore.The £24M ($38.66 million) contract marks the largest single subsea vessel project ever undertaken by Rolls-Royce, the company said in the release.The 157m long, 16,000t Aker Wayfarer will be modified by Myklebust Verft to allow for the deepwater installation and retrieval of subsea equipment; subsea trees and modules, including subsea structures and manifolds.Ståle Rasmussen, CEO of Kleven, said: “Myklebust Verft’s location, in the very heart of the maritime cluster on the North West coast of Norway, is a great advantage for all parties involved in the project, and this serves as a great example of local cooperation between Kleven, Vard and Rolls-Royce.”The Rolls-Royce automated handling system consists of a complete tower structure, skid system, deepwater lifting system as well as power units and controls. The deepwater lifting system is a Fibre Rope Deployment System (FRDS), based on our patented Cable Traction Control Unit (CTCU) technology. The equipment is due for a delivery in the first quarter of 2016.John Knudsen, Rolls-Royce President Commercial Marine, said: “This a very important contract for Rolls-Royce and it shows that the offshore industry has taken yet another step in accepting the superior performance of synthetic fibre ropes for lifting operations in deep and ultra-deep waters.”A similar system was installed by Rolls-Royce in 2009 onboard the AKOFS operated subsea equipment support vessel Skandi Santos, which has now been on contract with Petrobras for nearly five years. The vessel has successfully installed and retrieved subsea trees and modules in water depths up to 2300 meters, Rolls-Royce  said in the release.Geir Sjøberg, CEO of AKOFS Offshore, said: “Skandi Santos has been rated by Petrobras as one of their top performing vessels. Its track record makes us confident in the decision to install the handling system from Rolls-Royce on Aker Wayfarer.”Press Release[mappress mapid=”370″]last_img read more
