Time of rapid expansion at KOTUG

Over the past few months KOTUG International, which has its HQ in Rotterdam, has announced a number of additions to its tug fleet and plans for further expansion. An important component in the KOTUG fleet is the unique Rotor Tug concept invented by

Ton Kooren, founder of KOTUG. First introduced in 1999, the Rotor Tug, with its triple azimuthing unit propulsion system, has proliferated, over 30 vessels are now in use, and the number is growing.

In March an order was placed with two shipbuilders for the first four of a new generation of Rotor Tugs, designated the ART 80-32

Time of full moon

Not everyone is enamoured with pigs. I say they are an acquired taste, preferably with eggs in the morning. The Vet is ambivalent- it’s another animal and somewhere in his years of tertiary training he has learnt about its biology, physiology, reproduction, and as with such a lot of veterinary issues, its diet and digestive tract.

But for Stanley, out the back of beyond living on 20ha of organised chaos, pigs are a passion. Pretty hard to put an age on Stanley, a bachelor by choice, though not necessarily his own. It’s just no woman in her right mind would

Time in Mind

AS A SPECIES, WE ARE FASCINATED BY TIME. WE’VE BEEN MEASURING IT FOR SOME 4,000 YEARS AND CELEBRATING ITS PASSAGE FOR FAR LONGER.

We synchronize our daily activities using any number of diverse devices — ranging from the mechanical to the subatomic — and yet we rarely stop to think how it is that without such devices we still do a pretty good job of keeping time, knowing how long it will take to get back from the shops, or overtaking the car in front before hitting the oncoming traffic.

How do we do this? And why is it that

Time is as the sword coming: if you dont cut it, you will be cut.

How is the company achieving all of this? With an almost obsessive commitment to making the most of scarce time, as explains Mr. Pedawi with the aid of the ancient Middle Eastern proverb, ‘‘Time is as the sword coming: if you don’t cut it, you will be cut.’’ This appreciation of time, and the belief that every opportunity must be seized, may have been accentuated through some of the adverse life experiences Mr. Pedawi has lived through. He had to flee the war-torn country with his family in the 1970s to take refuge in the Netherlands – an experience that

TIME EXPOSURE

25 YEARS AGO

AUGUST 1984

1.

Color form: This graphic abstraction of a woman in a swimsuit was made by Japanese photographer Hideki Fujii as part of a series of images for a calendar. He used a 35mm SLR and a 180mm lens. The exposure, lit by electronic flash units, was 1 /100 sec between f/11 and f/16 on Kodachrome 64 film. The printing process rendered the image more abstract-an unaltered version ran in our 1985 Photography Annual.

The physical deep and with my camera…

The highs and lows of adventure photography.

I’ve always had an interest in art and creativity and at school my point and shoot accompanied me on most adventures. When it came to picking a university degree I decided on natural science course thinking this was my best opportunity for a career that would take me outdoors, the p ace where . I am happiest. After studying science for four years I realized something was missing. Unsure of what this was I looked for a place to get lost in introspection and the ocean seemed the perfect destination: The day after

The Next Generation

Amazingly, the Friday morning traffic was quiet for once and I arrived at the Heritage Aircraft Trust’s hangar at the historic North Weald aerodrome nearly an hour early. But I was by no means the first to arrive…

The hangar was a flurry of activity as the engineers prepared a pair of Folland Gnats for flight. As I walked through the door a cheery «Morning!» sounded from the back of the packed hangar and a youthful smiling face appeared from behind an aircraft.

As usual the ground crew and engineers were working their magic long before the aircrew got anywhere

Sunday SCHOOL

When your working week finishes, your beauty regime should be just getting started, whether you prefer time-saving marvels or luxurious, drawn-out rituals. By Nicola Moulton

Carving out a bit of weekend beautifying time has never offered more enduring rewards. Vinylux is a new “weekly polish” from CND, the maker of Shellac. There are 60 colours (30 match Shellac’s salon shades) and the secret is in the pro-light top coat that hardens in natural light to provide the protective “shell” which, according to CND, should keep you going for seven days. (Mine lasted six, but as a frustrated former nail-biter I
