Jalur Kereta Terpendek di Dunia, Ternyata ada di Vatikan

first_imgStasiun Vatikan sendiri dibalut dengan marmer, kereta dari stasiun ini akan mengangkut pelancong menuju ke Castel Gandolfo di Perbukitan Alban yang merupakan istana tempat peristirahatan Paus Fransiskus. Untuk diketahui, jalur kereta ini pertama kali dibuka untuk umum pada September 2015 lalu dan para pelancong yang tengah mengunjungi Vatikan bisa ikut tur naik kereta api menuju berbagai destinasi.Tur kereta ini sendiri menghubungkan beberapa destinasi favorit pelancong di Vatikan maupun di Roma selain ke istana Paus Fransiskus di Castel Gandolfo. Sepanjang jalur kereta, pelancong tidak akan merasa bosan sebab, pemandangan indah seperti taman bunga dan lahan pertanian menemani perjalanan.Castel Gandolfo yang merupakan tempat kediaman Paus Fransiskus berada di kaldera purba tepatnya di atas Danau Albano. Selain istana, observatorium, serta vila warisan Kaisar Diocletian, kota ini menampung kebun seluas 25 hektar.Kegiatan disini terbagi dalam tiga bagian, yang pertama adalah ziarah spiritual menyelami kisah Takhta Suci dan bertamu ke apartemen pribadi Paus. Kedua, ke vila Diocletian dan yang terakhir, wisata kebun untuk melihat sejumlah tanaman eksotis, salah satunya sebatang pohon zaitun pemberian Raja Hussein dari Yordania.Castel Gandolfo juga merekam episode sejarah yang menyentuh. Semasa Perang Dunia II, Paus Pius XI melindungi 12.500 pengungsi di sini, serta menyulap kamar tidur pribadinya menjadi bangsal bersalin di mana 35 bayi dilahirkan. Seperti yang mudah dibayangkan, kediaman Paus didesain elegan.Interiornya ditaburi benda yang sarat cerita, mencakup ornamen, perabot antik, serta perlengkapan upacara seperti kain dan tandu yang dulu dipakai untuk mengangkut Paus. Dari kamar tidur Paus, kita bisa mengintip Kota Roma dan Laut Mediterania di kejauhan. Selain petilasan sakral, Castel Gandolfo menawarkan kenikmatan duniawi.Baca juga: Napoli Centrale Railway Station, Salah Satu Gerbang Pelancong Menuju Pulau CapriDi kedai wine (fiaschetteria) seperti Frascati dan Marino, wine putih dan merah bisa dinikmati cukup dengan memutar keran.

To visit the Kenai Animal Shelter’s facebook page, click here. Marquis: “I was looking for a new adoptable family member and I made some trips to the local animal shelter to see what they had and what they offered and I was just really impressed with the quality of service that they provide there, how well they care for the animals, how knowledgeable the staff is, and one of the things that I though was particularly interesting that they did was that they embraced social media and they post information about the animals that they have adoptable there, and not only do they post pictures but they post information and personal stories about each of the animals.” And as for the Marquis family’s new husky mix…center_img Marquis: “If my daughter has her way it would be named Biscuit but she’s not going to have her way.” He said the shelter employees work hard to match the right person with the right animal in an effort to bring down returns and euthanasia rates.last_img read more

Cook Inlet Features Provide Oil Production Challenges

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享A new report by the Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys shows there could be more oil in the Cook Inlet but the earthen features provide challenges to commercial production. Decker says there is a “ray of hope” with those new findings and the Division of Oil and Gas is optimistic that producers might find reserviors despite the challenges. Decker: “Most traditional oil reservoirs have the oil distributed throughout the rock in what’s called the pore space, think of it as the tiny little holes between the sand grains and so forth that make up the rock, that’s where the oil is typically resident is in the framework porosity. The rocks on the Iniskin Peninsula by and large don’t have that framework porosity.”  While conducting energy related studies in 2014, scientists found oil seeping through fractures. Decker says that doesn’t mean there is oil readily available in that area. Much of the upper west and east sides of the Cook Inlet have been explored over the years but the new study suggests there could be potential further south. Petroleum Geologist Paul Decker with the Alaska Division of Oil & Gas…center_img Decker: “There’s probably a certain amount of undiscovered oil and gas in the basin. Now the thing is the easy targets, the targets of opportunity that are easily recognized using things like seismic surveys to focus the drilling activity in exploring for oil and gas, most of those easy targets have been identified decades ago now. And most of those have been tested.” The Iniskin Peninsula is located on the lower west side of the Cook Inlet, south of Mount Illiamna, where oil exploration began in the late 1800s. He says the older rock formations near that peninsula have lost their framework porosity because of cementation and alteration that happens with age.

‘Kid’ Yamamoto ready to rumble

first_img UFC, Mixed martial arts, Norifumi Yamamoto Fight club: Norifumi ‘Kid’ Yamamoto was scheduled to make his return to mixed martial arts at UFC 184. | UFC/GETTY KEYWORDS “That was an amazing fight,” Yamamoto (18-6, one no contest overall, 0-3 UFC) told The Japan Times over the phone from Los Angeles, where he’s preparing for his bout against Roman Salazar (9-3, 0-1) at UFC 184 on Saturday (Sunday in Japan) at the Staples Center. The 37-year-old MMA legend is hoping to give his fans another amazing result to talk about as he makes his return to the sport following a three-year absence.“I want to show them that I can fight as well as I could when I was at my best,” Yamamoto said.Fans have waited for a long time to see Yamamoto at his best. He’d fought his way into the MMA stratosphere before a brief hiatus in 2007, after which he dealt with setbacks stemming from injuries and, more recently, age. Even so, his heyday isn’t so far in the past that there won’t be a large segment of fans hoping to see him deliver a vintage performance and earn his first win in UFC. “UFC has given me a great chance,” Yamamoto said. “I want to live up to their expectation.”In Salazar, Yamamoto faces an unheralded fighter who lost in his UFC debut against Mitch Gagnon on Oct. 4, after being tapped as a last-minute replacement. Standing 170 cm, he’s taller than the 162-cm Yamamoto and 10 years his junior. Salazar will be hungry for a win over a fighter with Yamamoto’s name recognition.“It’s a win-win situation for me,” Salazar told UFC.com on Feb. 23. “I’m in awe still, but I have to treat him like I would any other opponent and do my best. I’ve got to be ready for anything, and I’m more than excited and up for the challenge. This is a catapult fight here. I could put myself on the map and everybody’s going to know who I am with one fight, so I have to go out there and perform for sure. I want to make a name for myself.”Yamamoto hasn’t strayed from his normal routine during his preparation, spending time in the gym with other members of his Krazy Bee team. He’s also felt somewhat rejuvenated by training with some of the younger Krazy Bee members like Kyoji Horiguchi, a 24-year-old who will face Demetrious Johnson for the UFC flyweight title at UFC 186 on April 25.“When you’ve got young, strong guys coming up around you, you gain confidence in yourself by working out with them,” Yamamoto said.Many of those young fighters, and others across the globe, likely remember Yamamoto’s reign as one of the top fighters of his era.He was a charismatic, strong and skilled all-around fighter in his prime who often won in style (only three of his 18 victories were via decision). A slick mix of power and speed, he was a nightmare in the ring and a celebrity outside it. While he was smaller than many of his opponents, he towered over them in terms of tenacity and grit.In 2007, Yamamoto announced he was stepping away from the sport to pursue a spot on Japan’s freestyle wrestling team for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. Wrestling in many ways was the family business. His father, Ikuei, had wrestled in the 1972 Games in Munich. His sister, Miyu, is a three-time women’s world champion in freestyle wrestling and another sister, Seiko, is a four-time world titlist. Seiko Yamamoto was in the news recently after the announcement she was expecting a child with MLB star Yu Darvish. “I wish her nothing but happiness,” Norifumi Yamamoto said.His own wrestling hopes were derailed by an injury to his arm, suffered in a match against Athens Games bronze medalist Kenji Inoue during the Emperor’s Cup in 2008, and he eventually returned to MMA. He hasn’t been the same since, having also suffered an injury to his leg, and is 1-5 since returning to the sport. He took more time off after a loss in 2012, but says he’s in good condition now.“I suffered quite a few injuries,” he said. “My body had also become soft and less flexible than before. But my condition has gotten better and I’m closer to my best condition.”Yamamoto’s past heights have set a bar he may not be able to reach anymore, but the Kanagawa Prefecture native says he isn’t one to dwell on the past, good or bad, anyway.“I don’t worry about the fights I’ve had,” he said. “I only think of the future. I don’t care about what I’ve done.”Yamamoto said he “wants to keep fighting as long as I can,” when asked about retirement.“There’s been an absence of three years,” he said. “I’m enjoying this.”A former great on the comeback trail is a familiar and easy story to latch onto, though Yamamoto insists he’s focused only on getting his first UFC win, not trying to live up to, or reclaim a piece of, his own legend.“Of course there’s some pressure,” he said. “From the time I made my debut, from the time I was young until now, there has always been the pressure of wanting to win.” Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto still gets asked about the time he knocked out an opponent in four seconds with a flying knee to the head.He managed that feat shortly after the opening bell for his fight against Kazuyuki Miyata, a former Olympic wrestler who on that night was the unfortunate soul being kneed in the face, during Hero’s 5 in 2006 at Yoyogi Gymnasium. It was the fastest knockout ever in a major MMA circuit.center_img GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES RELATED PHOTOS IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5last_img read more

Palais told to stay focused

first_imgCoach Tietjens sees encouraging signs at final HP training camp in POM RUGBY UNION: COACH of the ICTSI South Pacific Palais Paul Tietjens has commended his team for their commitment to training especially as the last two weeks would have been quite disruptive due to the festive season. The wet weather that Port Moresby faced where the majority of his players reside would have been equally challenging. He said it would have been quite testing since the last training camp was in early December prior to the Christmas and New Year period when everybody is in celebratory mode and trying to focus on training would have required some great sacrifice and self-discipline from the players. The squad which includes three girls from Australia, Gemma Schnaulbelt, Yollanda Gittins and Anika Butler who flew into Port Moresby on Sunday, started training on Monday. Tietjens was speaking after the test results in fitness showed some marked improvement in individual fitness levels following the opening day of the high performance training camp in Port Moresby on Monday. The Palais will continue training until Friday when the wider squad of 22 will be trimmed to the 15 or 16 to continue preparations for the HSBC World Rugby Women’s 7s in February. Tietjens reminded the girls that they must remain focused to maintain training as they would be representing PNG and many people are providing their support in many different ways to enable participation of the team’s campaign in this world class event. These includes the sponsors Credit Corporation who covered the large bulk of the costs of the camp, G4S which has been providing transportation for the Port Moresby-based players training and continues to do the same for this camp, Gateway Hotel where the team is staying, High Performance Centre and Venue Management Trust Fund for the training facilities. The tournament of the series the team has its sights set on is the one in Sydney from February 1-3 whereby PNG is pooled against New Zealand, England and France. Tietjens said his players try to maintain the self-belief in themselves, work hard as possible in training this week and continue the intensity on to the next camp in Sydney prior to the 7s tournament. He reminded his team that they must be focused so that “we are not there just to make the numbers, and we want (other) teams to take notice of us”. Tietjens said this was not just on the field but off it as well as they presented themselves by adopting strict and high professional standards. Assistant coach Frank Gabi reiterating Tietjens’ emphasis on quality training, adding that as the players were going through the sessions they should maintain their concentration and be determined, by not just doing the drills for the sake of doing them but strive for the correct application of skills being practised and be mentally strong. Other players in camp include Helen Abau, Catherine Anjo, Marie Biyama, Chelsea Garesa, Lynette Kwarula, Geua Larry, Taiva Lavai, Mala Mark, Fatima Rama, Kymlie Rapila, Barbara Sigere and Gwen Pokana. Debbie Kaore, who lost a close family member recently, was excused for the early sessions but called to say she would join the camp today. Following the Sydney 7s, the Palais will redirect their attention on the next round of the HSBC World 7s in Hong Kong and depending on how they fare have the potential of being a permanent participant in the series which will be played at certain locations around the world in 2019. The interim board of PNG Rugby Football Union headed by chair Syd Yates is working hard to attract as many sponsors as possible to join this campaign or invest some of the programs necessary for the growth of the game. And sponsors like ICTSI South Pacific group of companies, Kumul Petroleum Holdings, Credit Corporation, National Gaming Control Board and its CEO Imelda Agon and Pacific Industries, G4S as transport providers, Gateway Hotel for accommodation, Tactical Solutions International, High Performance Centre, Venue Management Trust at Aquatic Centre and Sir John Guise Stadium for training facilities, have been commended for their continued support.last_img read more
