FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailTim Clayton/Corbis via Getty Images(PARIS) — The French Open appears to be sidelining Serena Williams’ famed catsuits, with the tournament’s chief saying they “would no longer be accepted.”The tennis pro, 36, wore the Black Panther-inspired bodysuit earlier in May to mark her return to her first major tournament since giving birth to her daughter last year.But, in an interview with Tennis magazine Thursday, French Open president Bernard Giudicelli said Williams and other players will have to dress more conservatively in future tournaments.According to the U.K. newspaper The Independent, he singled out Williams in an interview today, saying, “I believe we have sometimes gone too far. Serena’s outfit this year, for example, would no longer be accepted. You have to respect the game and the place.”Besides allowing Williams to feel like a queen from Black Panther’s fictional Wakanda, she said the fitted suit was designed to protect her against blood clots. Williams did not immediately respond to a request for comment.After giving birth to Alexis Olympia last September, Williams revealed that she dealt with life-threatening complications related to a pulmonary embolism.At the French Open, Williams told reporters that the suit was more than just a fashion statement.“I had a lot of problems with my blood clots, and, God, I don’t know how many I have had in the past 12 months. So it is definitely a little functionality to it,” she said.“I have been wearing pants in general a lot when I play, so I can keep the blood circulation going,” she added. “It’s a fun suit but it’s also functional, so I can be able to play without any problems.”Williams, who just arrived in New York for the U.S. Open, has not yet commented on Giudicelli’s remarks. But on social media, “French Open” was a trending topic as fans reacted critically to the tournament president’s remarks, calling them misogynistic and even racist. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

NSW’s planning commission to decide on approval of Santos’ Narrabri Gas Project. (Credit: Pixabay/Anita starzycka) Santos said that its Narrabri Gas Project in northwest New South Wales (NSW) has been referred to the Australian state’s Independent Planning Commission (IPC) for approval.NSW Minister for Planning Robert Gordon Stokes has requested the IPC to carry out public hearings on the proposed project and subsequently to take a decision based on them.The Narrabri Gas Project will see the development of a coal seam gas field made up of up to 850 gas wells on up to 425 well pads over 20 years. The project also involves the construction and operation of gas processing and water treatment facilities.According to Santos, the minister’s referral of the project to the IPC is a major milestone in the independent approvals process. The company said that the next step will be for the NSW Department of Planning to compile an assessment report and submit the report to the IPC for its consideration.The commission has been given 12 weeks’ time for the IPC to decide on the project’s approval following the receipt of the assessment report from the NSW Department of Planning.As per Santos managing director and CEO Kevin Gallagher, a decision on whether or not the Narrabri Gas Project can move ahead is important for the company to determine where it will allocate investments in new natural gas developments to supply gas to the east coast over the coming decade.Narrabri Gas Project can cover half of the natural gas demand in NSWSantos claimed that the gas project in the Narrabri area can potentially supply enough natural gas to address half of the natural gas demand in NSW. The oil and gas company has committed 100% of the gas produced from the Narrabri project to the NSW market, which will be supplied through the existing Moomba to Sydney pipeline.Kevin Gallagher said: “We have applied the best science to the environmental impact statement for Narrabri. We are confident that it will stand on its merits and that the project could be safely and sustainably developed to protect water resources and the environment.“Santos will participate openly and transparently in the IPC process.“If we can develop Narrabri gas, it will be the most competitively-priced gas for NSW customers, and it will always be cheaper than LNG imports, especially when gas prices are high in Asia.” The Narrabri Gas Project in Australia will see the development of a coal seam gas field made up of up to 850 gas wells on up to 425 well pads over 20 years
Oil producers in particular have had to re-assess their capital project plans amid the pandemic (Credit: ABB) ABB has today introduced its Adaptive Execution platform aimed at helping energy customers overcome the challenging financial and logistical conditions brought about by the coronavirus pandemic.The digital virtualisation portal aims to streamline the execution process of major capital-intensive projects, by integrating the planning, testing and development phases of a new venture under one template.The Swiss-Swedish engineering giant says this can reduce automation-related capital expenditure (capex) by up to 40%, lower delivery schedules by up to 30% and start-up hours by up to 40%.At a time when capital-spending budgets have been slashed industry wide, and projects have delayed or put on hold due to lockdown restrictions, companies are increasingly seeking out cost-cutting and operational-efficiency gains.Peter Terwiesch, president of ABB’s industrial automation division, said: “2020 has been a year of disruptions across the global energy industry.“With falling oil prices, challenges induced by the current lockdowns and the rising demand for sustainable energy investments, companies are looking for new ways to reduce cost, schedule and risk for major projects in this low-capex environment.” ABB adaptive execution aims to lower on-site engineering hoursThe pandemic has forced energy companies to scrutinise their project spending decisions this year like never before, while social restrictions have made in-person collaboration and on-site visits highly challenging.The International Energy Agency (IEA) estimates capital investment across the energy industry will fall by 20% this year – around $400bn – as firms confront the financial and operational implications of the health emergency.Large capital projects across the energy sector frequently run over budget and beyond the expected timescale, which in this new environment is a risk many businesses are increasingly unwilling to take.The Adaptive Execution platform focuses on efficiency and adaptability during project delivery, by digitally centralising the various development stages for all key stakeholders, simulating operational processes using digital twins, and enabling a “remote” delivery of key milestones.ABB says this will “remove the need for engineering on site and reduce the physical hardware required for a control and automation system”, with the number of engineering hours spent on project installation, commissioning and testing able to be lowered by up to 85%.It will “change the way customers, engineering procurement construction (EPC) contractors and vendors interact”, according to Brandon Spencer, president of ABB Energy Industries.“We can create better business value for our customers by creating an environment where everyone can do his or her own part with confidence, empowering delivery teams to achieve more, in less time. This is the key to overall project success.” As energy firms grapple with capital restrictions and project delays amid coronavirus, ABB says its Adaptive Execution virtual platform can help overcome this disruption
