Brookfield Floating Bridge Restricted to Pedestrian UseMONTPELIER – The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) announced May 15, 2008, that the Brookfield Floating Bridge along Route 65 over Sunset Lake will be closed to all but pedestrian traffic for the foreseeable future.VTrans closes the bridge to vehicular traffic each winter. When the Agency went to reopen the wooden bridge this spring, it showed a loss of buoyancy and settling into the water. The Agency determined it to be unsafe for vehicular traffic, but can remain open to pedestrian use.The 330-foot bridge, which uses 380 flotation devices to remain on top of the water, was last reconstructed in 1978 using a combination of new wood as well as material from the preexisting structure, which dated back to 1936.”The wood, some of which is now more than 70 years old, along with the flotation devices have become waterlogged to the point where the bridge is beginning to sink,” said VTrans Secretary Neale Lunderville.”Unfortunately a simple fix is not possible, and we will have to close to bridge to vehicles indefinitely.”Motorists using Route 65 will be detoured 2.7 miles along local streets, the same detour that is used during the winter when the bridge is traditionally closed.
Feature image and above image by Joe Foley. Would you believe me if I told you that giving people permission to “not” do something is one of the best pieces of advice I pass to people as a mountain bike skills coach? I own TakeAim Cycling, a skills company that has coached riders and new instructors for almost 10 years from Vermont to Florida. I started this business thinking that I’d be showing people how to ride bikes better but I quickly learned that I’d also be spending a lot of time letting people off the hook from the world’s pressures to perform and to help them redefine success. Here are a few conversations I often have with clients that have helped them turn their fear and frustration into flow. Speaking of struggling with expectations, let’s talk about the next scenario that a recent client struggled with. After only about a year of riding he decided to try to ride the Shenandoah Mountain 100. He came to me and we started working on an eight month plan to get him ready to have a successful race. One day he mentioned how he was really struggling on a section of the course and how frustrated he was to not be able to ride it. Once I realized where he was struggling I quickly reassured him that few people actually ride those technical climbs and even fewer would burn matches to try in the middle of a 100 mile race. Since he didn’t ride with others, he assumed that most people must ride it. We then went out and rode other tough sections of the trail together and I showed him where it’s better to get off and walk than waste energy or risk injury. This rider had no perspective on what was hard for others and assumed he was doing something wrong. Even if he had gone out with a couple riders, they may have been the 1% of those able to ride certain sections and he’d still be wondering why “everyone” can ride it but him! Often I’ll have a client beating themselves up about how they can’t stop braking in corners and that if only they could master going brakeless they’d reach some riding nirvana. Gently I’ll break the news to them that the dogma of “just letting go” will not solve all their problems. I’ll then explain that the main issue is suddenly “adding” braking forces in the middle of a corner. So we practice braking more before the corner and either maintaining or letting off the brakes through the corner. The result is they suddenly flow more through corners and then we can work on other skills that help them brake even less. Reframing what “braking” is lets us stop hating the action and begin using it with more intention to find more flow in every corner. Enjoying the process is a big part of success in mountain biking but unfortunately getting into it can be intimidating. In all of these cases I get to help people reframe their goals in a way that leads to more fun and flow everytime they ride. Let us know what you’re working on and we’ll help you tackle your goals no matter your skill level. TakeAim Cycling provides private group and individual instruction, as well as open camps and clinics. Check us out on the web and Instagram. These days access to dirt jumps is easier than ever but that doesn’t mean you have to jump them to have fun and find flow. I’ll point at a series of tabletop jumps and tell people to just ride them but not stress about jumping. So many people are blind to this option and just telling them they don’t have to jump is a major shift in their perception. I’ll have them start by rolling and pumping jumps with wheels down at slower speeds and they’ll immediately be having fun and improving skills without the worry of needing to jump. I always tell people you’ve “got to roll it to know it” and drop all other expectations.

Peter Damgaard Jensen, chief executive at Danish pension fund manager PKA, has taken over from Donald Macdonald as chair of the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC), with Macdonald also retiring as a trustee of the £46bn (€56bn) BT Pension Scheme.Damgaard Jensen became chair of the IIGCCC on 1 January.Macdonald had been its head for just over five years.PKA, which runs three labour market pension funds in the social and healthcare sectors, has been a member of the IIGCC since 2010, and Damgaard Jensen a member of its board since 2013. Commenting on his appointment, Damgaard Jensen said the IIGCC’s membership and influence had grown over the years to make it “an organisation that policymakers and governments now take seriously – as became particularly clear during the climate negotiations at COP 21 that delivered the Paris Agreement.“With the Paris Agreement in force, it is paramount institutional investors now put words into action to deliver sustainable investments both in Europe and emerging markets, where there are huge opportunities and a great need for such investments.”In addition to stepping down from his role at the IIGCC, Macdonald is this week retiring from his role as a trustee director of the pension scheme for UK telecommunications company BT.He will have been a trustee of the BT Pension Scheme for 19 years. Macdonald was the inaugural chair of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), having been its head from September 2006 to December 2010.He is staying on as a non-executive director at Inflection Point Capital Management (IPCM), an investment advisory firm focusing on sustainable investing research that is owned by IPCM and Group La Française.Macdonald told IPE he was looking forward to his retirement but that he has enjoyed the work he has done.“I’ve particularly enjoyed doing the work with IIGCC,” he added. “That’s been a considerable challenge, but we have built up the organisation, and we now have a very strong relationship with the European Commission and the member state governments, and I think we helped to mobilise investor opinion in a way that helped to shape the Paris accords on climate change.”
Swedish engineering group Sandvik has signed a contract for the supply of stainless steel tubes required for 250 kilometers of umbilicals, linking a subsea development to an existing offshore platform.Sandvik said on Tuesday that the contract value was approximately 700 million SEK (about $85.4 million) and that the delivery would take place from the end of 2017 and during the first half of 2018.The company added that the parties agreed not to disclose the name of the project nor the customer at this point. The order was booked during the fourth quarter of 2017.Michael Andersson, head of product area tube within Sandvik Materials Technology, said: “We are proud to have been selected as the umbilical tube supplier for this prestigious contract which confirms our position as the leading producer of steel tubes for umbilicals.”Umbilical systems are connections used to transport energy, data, and liquids between oil and gas installations on the seafloor to offshore facilities or platforms.Sandvik Materials Technology will also be supplying umbilical pipes for one of the largest offshore gas projects in the Mediterranean – the Leviathan. The order, announced back in April, was valued at about 44 million U.S. dollars with deliveries scheduled for 2017.
South Korean power company KOMIPO is reportedly seeking a liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo for delivery in November.The LNG cargo is for delivery between November 16 and 21, Reuters reported on Friday citing a tender document.The tender will close on July 24, the report said.In a separate report, Reuters says that South Korean imports of LNG are set to ease from record levels racked up in the first-half of the year, with appetite for the fuel from utilities seen fading as a raft of nuclear power stations come back online.The country’s imports of LNG rose nearly 16 percent year-on-year to a record 22.7 million tonnes in the first six months of 2018, boosted by demand from power firms.But with an average of only six reactors expected to be offline over the rest of the year, analysts say shipments of LNG into the world’s No.3 importer of the fuel are likely to decline, the report said.
