We won’t risk if the weather is unfavorable to us but once the weather improves, we will try to work 24/7 ”, Evangelista stressed.He added that the salvaging team already requested a number of lighting equipment which will be installed aboard USS Guardian so that the vessels conducting salvaging operations can work even during  night time.USS Guardian (MCM 5) ran aground on Tubbataha Reef  Jan. 17, while transiting the Sulu Sea.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, March 7, 2013; Image: US Navy March 7, 2013 View post tag: Compromises View post tag: harshlast_img read more

What is inflation?

He lives in San Diego with his beautiful wife … Web: Details Anyone with grandparents will have probably heard some yarn about the good old days; kids played outside, poodle skirts were fashionable, greased hair was actually attractive, and everything was cheaper. It would appear that products of any kind were just cheaper back in yesteryear. So, what happened? Why aren’t we benefiting from gas only costing 18 cents a gallon? Why is it that buying a house now generally costs hundreds of thousands of dollars? Part of it has to do with inflation.What is inflation?Inflation refers to a decrease in the value of a dollar. How can inflation refer to a smaller value? It’s simple. The less a dollar is worth, the higher the price it costs for any product. When the prices go up, that’s inflation. In other words, as the cost of goods is inflated, the value of the dollar goes down.Is all inflation the same?There are two kinds of inflation. There’s something called cost-push inflation, which happens when production costs go up, increasing the price for the products created. Demand-pull inflation refers to the demand for an item shooting up, which causes the price for said item to go up.last_img read more

AP source: Jason Collins to get second 10-day deal

first_imgBrooklyn Nets Jason Collins speaks during a news conference before an NBA basketball game against the Chicago Bulls at the Barclays Center, March 3, in New York. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig)NEW YORK (AP) — Jason Collins spent part of his off day on Sunday shopping at Costco.He was wise to stock up, because he’ll be staying with Brooklyn for at least a little while longer.The Nets plan to sign Collins to a second 10-day contract, a person with knowledge of the situation said Monday.Collins signed his original deal on Feb. 23, becoming the NBA’s first openly gay player, and it expires Tuesday.The Nets then will re-sign him for another 10 days on Wednesday, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the plans haven’t been made public.After that, the Nets would have to sign him for the rest of the season if they wanted to keep him.Collins played the final 2:41 of the Nets’ 96-80 victory over Chicago on Monday, receiving a standing ovation from a sellout crowd of 17,732 that included former NBA Commissioner David Stern when he entered. Collins missed his only shot.“It was cool. It was a lot of fun to go into the game,” he said. “The most important thing was that we got the win.”Collins said before the game that he wasn’t aware of any deal, leaving those details up to his agent. Coach Jason Kidd said those discussions were between management and Collins’ agent, but said his former teammate has been “great, on and off the court.”“Twin is a good friend of mine and he’s a basketball player, but he’s a great person and so that’s why we wanted him on this team and we felt he could help us win,” Kidd said, referring to Collins by the nickname he had during his original stint with the Nets from 2001-08.The Nets still practice in New Jersey even after moving to Brooklyn before last season, so that’s where Collins was Sunday after the Nets got back from their road trip that ended Saturday night in Milwaukee.“It’s kind of funny. Yesterday on my day off I’m driving around Jersey on Route 17 and bringing back a lot of memories from when I was here before,” Collins said.He’s much more famous now after revealing he was gay in a Sports Illustrated article last April. He had been out of the NBA from then until signing with the Nets.Collins said he had plenty of ticket requests from family and friends for Monday’s game, and also saw a number of familiar faces from the old days. The pregame press conference and the overall media attention are new, and Collins believes it won’t last, but understands that for now his sexuality makes him a big story.“Over time it will go down, but as far as doing interviews and talking about it, I’m getting comfortable with the microphone or the camera on me,” he said.He’s more comfortable on the court, even in the limited minutes he gets. Finally finished with his lengthy list of pregame obligations, he was looking forward to helping the Nets in whatever way he could.“Now that that’s all settled, I’ll go out there and just try to focus as much as I can on the game,” Collins said.___Follow Brian Mahoney on Twitter: read more
