British company lands $30M contract for next-gen US Navy sub

first_img The U.S. Navy has awarded Sheffield Forgemasters, a British heavy engineering firm, a contract worth over 30 million USD for the production of submarine components.  The engineering specialist has confirmed orders for a sequence of castings for the US Ohio submarine replacement program.No further information has been released about the order specifics, but the contracts will provide a much needed body of work for the company, which has been under economic pressure after the collapse of the offshore oil and gas market and in the wake of a global economic downturn.According to British news site Telegraph, the company was recently forced to cut 100 positions from its workforce at the start of the year while the parent company’s revenue suffered a £7.6m loss.Known as the Ohio replacement program, the U.S. Navy’s newest class of nuclear ballistic missile submarines (SSBN(X)) will be named Columbia after the name of the first vessel in the class, USNI News recently reported.“Work has already started on these orders and the first parts will complete in 2016 with another tranche of components anticipated to follow in 2017, providing work for our Melt Shop, Foundry and Machine Shops. These are complex components and require detailed modeling and manufacturing to highly specific tolerances,” Graham Honeyman, chief executive at Sheffield Forgemasters International, said.“These orders provide a boost for our Brightside Lane operations as we work towards our business turnaround plan. We hope to build on the success of these orders as our teams search out greater opportunities for product diversification and services in a challenging global market,” Honeyman added.The project has been granted full approval by the UK Government.

Oxford researcher suggests Donald Trump has stronger psychopathic traits than Hitler

first_imgAn Oxford researcher has pegged Republican Party’s presidential hopeful Donald Trump at 171 on the PPI-R test for psychopathic traits.The study, which was drawn up by Oxford’s Dr Kevin Dutton, saw him and a collection of political experts estimate Trump’s response to 56 psychometric questions. The results place him two points above Adolf Hitler, who scores 169.The test “does not say whether someone is a psychopath,” explains Dr Dutton, “it scores them on eight traits that contribute to a psychopathic character.“Both great and terrible leaders score higher than the general population for psychopathic traits, but it is the mix of those traits that determines success.“Some of those traits, such as fearlessness or stress immunity, can be positive. Others, such as blame externalisation or being unconcerned about the future, are more likely to be negative. One, cold-heartedness, can contribute to good and bad leadership.”Trump scored higher than Hitler on “social influence” and “fearlessness”, but lower on traits usually considered bad, such as “Machiavellian egocentricity” and “cold-heartedness”. One trait both figures share is “blame externalisation”, a common feature of populist politics.The findings, which were published in the journal Scientific American Mind, also measured the estimated score of Hillary Clinton, who was found to have a very high score for “Machiavellian egocentricity”. On the measure for “fearless dominance”, traditionally associated with strong presidencies, Trump’s score was higher.The study is another example of the worldwide Trump phenomenon reaching Oxford, after students organised a protest against his candidacy in March. Dr Dutton, who included Trump as part of a wider study on the relationship between psychopathy and political leadership, was nonetheless keen to stress that “in the end, while both score relatively highly, it will be up to voters to decide if whether their mix of positive and negative traits should send them to the Oval Office.”last_img read more

Arsenal fear Lucas Torreira has sparked transfer bidding war after making England admission

first_imgArsenal star Lucas Torreira as admitted he prefers living in Italy instead of England (Picture: Getty)Arsenal are steeling themselves for the prospect of a bidding war after Lucas Torreira confessed he prefers living in Italy over England.The Uruguay international was the most expensive of Unai Emery’s five headline signings last summer after Arsenal beat Napoli to the services of the combative midfielder.After being eased into the starting XI, Torreira quickly established himself as an integral component of Emery’s new-look midfield and earned cult hero status by scoring his first goal for the club in November’s 4-2 win over Tottenham at the Emirates.The 23-year-old’s performance levels dipped, however, as the season went on and in a recent press conference ahead of the Copa America he confessed he has had difficulty acclimatising to life in north London.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTMore: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityAsked what parts of life in England he enjoys, Torreira replied: ‘I don’t know if there are many things that I enjoy. ‘I think it was better in Italy. England is a totally different world, a very large country.‘The language [barrier] has cost me, to be able to relate with my peers and with the people. It is very difficult when you can’t have dialogue.‘And so is the climate. You go out in the morning and it is cloudy, you arrive late to your home and it is cloudy.

But as the years pass, I’m going to be adapting.’AC Milan have recently hired Torreira’s former Sampdoria manager Marco Giampaolo and the 51-year-old is reported to have made the midfielder a priority target while, according to the Evening Standard, Napoli maintain an interest.Emery’s transfer budget stands at a modest £40m before player sales, but he would be loathe to lose Torreira given the impact he made, especially during the early part of last season.More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

The world awaits for globetrotting ‘Tiger’

first_img19 Nov 2019 The world awaits for globetrotting ‘Tiger’ Photography: Leaderboard Tags: England Men’s Teamcenter_img Robin ‘Tiger’ Williams is already a golfing globetrotter with almost as many air miles as a trans-Atlantic pilot.Just like Tiger Woods, the sporting icon who inspired his middle name, the 18-year-old is intent on making his mark on planet golf.So far, the young Englishman’s journey in life has taken him on an unusual path from South Africa’s Cape to the North Wales coast. From the Granite City of Aberdeen to America’s Sunshine State.Born in Stellenbosch, Williams moved to Prestatyn as a baby. By the age of eight, he’d decided he wanted to become a golfer. Having moved to Scotland’s north-east coast and aged just 11, Williams left his family home for school in Florida as he chased his dream.Now based back in England and a key member of the men’s squad, Williams still believes the world is still his oyster.And despite being saddled with high levels of expectation as the ‘new Tiger’ ever since he first picked up a golf club, the bright teenager is happy to take all the hype in his stride.“It helps me and motivates me. I am working to prove wrong those people who doubt me,” admitted Williams during a break from coaching with his England colleagues“I don’t find it pressurised. It doesn’t bring me down. In fact, it lifts me up to work harder than before.“As I see it, I share a middle name and a love of golf with Tiger. He has a different background, ethnicity, religion, parents.“If I can mimic what he’s done that’s unbelievable, but it’s just a name even if he was the reason I got into golf.”So what about his unique journey to the point where he’s rated as one of the country’s most promising amateur talents?“It’s been a good grounding for me as I look ahead to being a pro,” added Williams.“It can be difficult, but I’m used to it now playing eight, nine weeks in a row and flying from one side of the world to the other, playing a practice round and then going again.“My air miles are good. I’ve racked up a lot of them.“Moving to America aged 11 was a big thing. Learning to do your own washing and shopping at the age of 11 is unusual!“At that age you normally rely on your parents doing that for you.“It taught me time management skills to make sure that I had enough time for everything – school, golf, gym.“I don’t feel as if I missed out on a childhood because I was doing something I loved every day.”Williams’ passport can take a bit of a breather for the moment although he will combine a winter training programme in England with a couple of visits to Quinta do Lago in Portugal as part of the England set-up.He does so with a spring in his step.Last month, Williams became only the third amateur to win on the MENA Tour when he claimed victory in an event in Jordan – closing out his victory by carding five consecutive birdies to win by eight shots.That triumph, as well as a visit to stage two of European Tour school,  has given Williams a glimpse of the standards he needs to hit in the months and years ahead.“I hadn’t enjoyed that good a 2019 leading up to Q School. But then I made it to stage two and went over to play on the MENA Tour,” he added.“I wanted to suss out if I could compete with pros on that tour who are used to the weather and conditions.“It was a real confidence-booster knowing that I could do it.”For now, Williams’ mind is set on amateur events with England – the European Championships and Home Internationals the first goals for 2020.“England Golf has been a big part of my development starting out with regional squads and then going to the boys’ team and now the men’s side,” confirmed Williams“It’s an individual sport and you don’t really get the chance to be in a team environment all that often. When you do then it’s fun and you make great friendships with lots of guys.”In 2017, Williams teed it up in the British Masters at Close House and last year was part of the Junior Ryder Cup squad at Le Golf National in Versailles.Rubbing shoulders with superstars of the game has just whetted his appetite for the future.“I did meet Tiger in France and that was good,” said the teenager with a broad smile.“I’ve looked up to these guys for so long watching them on TV and YouTube – Tiger, Rory, Koepka, Dustin, Stenson.“Look at Tommy Fleetwood who has been through England Golf development stages and reached the top level.“It shows us that it can be done.“Tiger is my hero – for what he’s done for the sport and how he changed the game.“He’s the reason I play – at the age of eight I was trying to mimic him.”And does the mimicry stem to celebrations as well as the swing?“Yeah, of course you practise the fist-pump  – everyone does it,” joked Williams who hopes to have a few celebrations of his own to showcase in 2020.last_img read more
