IMB: Global Piracy Drops by 42 Pct in Q1 2019

first_imgThe first quarter of 2019 saw fewer incidents of piracy and armed robbery against ships, compared to the first three months of 2018, a report shows.According to the report issued by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) International Maritime Bureau’s (IMB), there were 38 incidents of piracy and armed robbery at sea in the first quarter of this year.This represents 28 fewer incidents or a decrease of 42.4 percent, compared to the corresponding period last year when 66 incidents were recorded.IMB’s Piracy Reporting Centre detailed that 27 vessels were boarded, seven vessels were fired upon and four attempted attacks occurred in Q1 2019. No vessels were reported as hijacked for the first time since the first quarter of 1994.“These latest statistics from the IMB Piracy Reporting Centre are encouraging. However, first quarter statistics is too short a period on which to anticipate trends over the year,” Pottengal Mukundan, IMB Director, said.The Gulf of Guinea represented a high number of piracy and armed robbery attacks at sea, with 22 incidents reported in the first quarter of 2019.The region also accounted for all of the worldwide crew kidnappings as 21 crew members were kidnapped across five separate incidents. Incidents were reported in the coastal countries of Benin, Cameroon, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Nigeria and Togo in the first quarter of 2019.Nigeria has been a hotspot for piracy incidents over the past decade. However, in the first quarter of 2019, Nigeria experienced a decrease in reported piracy incidents.The country reported 14 incidents of piracy for Q1 2019, in comparison to 22 incidents in Q1 2018. These results confirm the Nigerian Navy’s increased efforts to “actively respond to reported incidents by dispatching patrol boats,” the report notes.Despite these efforts, Nigerian waters remain risky for vessels, especially the port of Lagos where four incidents have been reported.In Asia, Indonesia witnessed a drop in piracy activities for the first quarter of 2019. There were only three incidents reported against anchored vessels in ports in Indonesia – the fewest reported incidents since 2010 – according to the report.As with Nigeria, increased cooperation and information sharing between the Indonesian Marine Police and IMB Piracy Reporting Centre has enabled regular patrols in high-risk areas.The declining rate of piracy incidents worldwide in the first quarter of 2019 reinforces the importance of transparency, communication and coordination between vessels and coastal authorities, IMB stressed.By reporting all incidents to the IMB Piracy Reporting Centre and coastal authorities, the response can be better organized improving incident response times and prompt advice to vessels aimed at a more optimal use of resources. National governments and coastal authorities can use this data to collaborate and strengthen their piracy prevention efforts, IMB further said.last_img read more

Steyn strikes twice before rain cuts short day two

first_img(REUTERS)-A fired-up Dale Steyn removed both New Zealand openers to leave the tourists on 15 for two before rain ended day two of the first Test against South Africa yesterday..Steyn, playing his first Test of 2016 after injury, had Tom Latham (four) caught by Hashim Amla at first slip before trapping Martin Guptill (seven) lbw.New Zealand are replying to the home side’s 263 all out and will hope for better batting conditions today after the South Africans were able to find prodigious swing and movement off the wicket in what is a first ever winter test in Durban.Captain Kane Williamson and the experienced Ross Taylor, both on two not out, will resume on the third day, when early morning rain is expected to give way to sunshine for the remainder of the test.They had some good fortune in battling their way to lunch, which arrived six minutes early when rain forced the players from the field. No further play was possible.Steyn was not only threatening but miserly too, conceding just three runs from his six overs.Seamer Vernon Philander also made an impressive return to test cricket after 10 months on the sidelines through injury and was unlucky not to get the wicket of Latham when Dean Elgar dropped a simple chance in the slips.Earlier, New Zealand needed 10 overs to take the final two South African wickets after the hosts resumed on 236 for eight following a 50-minute rain delay.They were held up by a career-best unbeaten 32 from young fast bowler Kagiso Rabada, who looked composed before running out of partners.Seamers Trent Boult (3-52) and South African-born Neil Wagner (3-47) were the pick of the New Zealand bowlers.SOUTH AFRICA 1st innings (Overnight: 236-8)S.

Seamer Janat floors Windies with five for 11 to level T20 series

first_imgLUCKNOW, India (CMC) – West Indies were floored by an exceptional spell from seamer Karim Janat as they crashed to a 41-run defeat to Afghanistan in the second Twenty20 International here yesterday, turning today’s final match into the critical series-decider.Chasing a straightforward target of 148 at the Atal Bihari Vajpayee International Stadium, West Indies found themselves pegged back early and limped to a disappointing 106 for eight from their allotted overs.Only wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin, who laboured for 27 balls over an unbeaten 24, managed to pass 20 as West Indies never recovered after finding themselves meandering on 45 for four at the half-way stage.Janat, in his first game of the series, proved sensational with a spell of five for 11 from his four-over quota.The 21-year-old entered the attack in the eighth over and accounted for the key wickets of Shimron Hetmyer (11), opener Evin Lewis (14) and captain Kieron Pollard (7) in a terrific display of fast bowling.Seamer Kesrick Williams had earlier maintained his excellent form, snaring three for 23 from four overs as Afghanistan, choosing to bat first, stumbled their way to 147 for seven off their 20 overs.Hazratullah Zazai and Janat both struck 26 while Gulbadin Naib chipped in with 24 but Williams and fellow pacer Jason Holder (2-23) combined to hurt the innings.West Indies were on the backfoot early as Zazai blasted three fours and a six in a 15-ball cameo, posting 42 off 26 balls for the first wicket with Rahmanullah Gurbaz (15) to put his side on top.But Williams intervened, removing both off successive deliveries in the fifth over – Gurbaz caught on the second attempt in the deep by Pollard and Zazai carving a slower ball to Brandon King at point.Holder, whose first over leaked 16 runs, followed up with key strikes as Afghanistan slumped to 97 for six in the 15th over. However, Naib struck two fours and a six in an 18-ball knock, pairing with Najibullah Zadran (20 not out) in a 44-run, seventh-wicket partnership to get their side to a competitive total.In reply, the warning signs were there when West Indies crawled to 17 from the first 23 deliveries and then lost King (12), bowled on the backfoot by an inswinging slower ball from seamer Naveen-ul-Haq.The left-handed Hetmyer lasted 14 balls before being adjudged lbw to Janat in the eighth over and Janat then struck twice in the 10th over to turn the game on its head. First, he claimed Lewis skying to Ibrahim Zadran at long-on after the left-hander counted two fours in a 22-ball innings, and then found Sherfane Rutherford’s (6) edge for wicketkeeper Gurbaz to complete a straightforward catch.With 103 runs required from the last 10 overs, a special innings was required from Pollard (7) but Janat brought one back sharply to hit the right-hander in front in the 12th over, and increase the Windies’ turmoil.Jason Holder arrived as West Indies’ last genuine hope of staging a late comeback but struck two fours in 13 before missing a charge at leg-spinning captain Rashid Khan, and going stumped in the 15th over.last_img read more

Smith boosts Orange with strong performance, finishes college career a winner

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ HOUSTON — Jerome Smith took the field against Minnesota for the Texas Bowl on Friday with a handful of goals, milestones and markers in mind.First and foremost, he wanted to win, but the rest were individual. He entered the game 160 yards short of a second straight 1,000-yard season. He wanted that. He watched backfield partner Prince-Tyson Gulley win the New Era Pinstripe Bowl MVP in 2012. He wanted one of his own. Running backs coach DeAndre Smith looked up the record for rushing yards in a bowl game. Jerome Smith wanted that, too.The last three, perhaps the loftier of the goals, fell short, but he got the one he wanted most. He went out a winner.“The hay is finally in the barn,” he said.Smith carried the ball 16 times for 74 yards. In his final game in a Syracuse uniform, the Orange (7-6, 4-4 Atlantic Coast) let him pound the ball. His three backups sat back as Smith ran wild during the 21-17 Texas Bowl win over Minnesota (8-5, 4-4 Big Ten).AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHe didn’t have the dominant performance he hoped for, but he scored SU’s first touchdown and displayed the solid, workmanlike running style that fans have come to expect and that he hopes will get him a spot in the NFL.“I thought it was best for me and my family,” Smith said. “I graduated, so I did my part and gave my all to Syracuse.”Smith’s decision to forgo his final year of eligibility was made earlier during the season, but he decided not to make it public because it would’ve been “selfish.”“I wanted my team to just focus on the season,” Smith said.He said leaving now was a matter of timing. He’s leaving the Orange in a good position and with the senior class that he came in with.That’s all the decision comes down to. He’s not concerned with injuries — those can happen at any level. Instead, he’s confident with the direction that SU is heading in. And without him it will be just fine.“We’e got a really good class of running backs in our backfield and I feel like I left them in good hands,” Smith said. “They’ll probably do a lot better than me.” Comments Published on December 28, 2013 at 3:01 am Contact David: dbwilson@syr.edu | @DBWilson2last_img read more

NFL: Has Cleveland finally found their savior? Joel Stave signs with Browns

first_imgThe 2018 NFL Draft was one of the more quarterback-heavy drafts in recent memory. The trend of quarterback transactions continued into this week for the Cleveland Browns who — after their addition of Baker Mayfield via the first overall pick this past weekend — signed former Badger QB Joel Stave.Stave had undoubtedly one of the most successful, winningest careers in Wisconsin quarterback history — finishing his final season with a 31–10 record as a starter. Setting several school records, Stave ended his time with the Badgers recording the third-most games played by a quarterback in school history.Throwing for 7,635 yards and 48 touchdowns, Stave solidified his mark in the history books, ranking second all time in pass attempts and completions, boasting a whopping 1,031 attempts and 631 completions. He threw for 200 yards in a game 18 times — good for most in school history. He was also the first quarterback in school history to have a 4–0 record against an opponent — a record which he reached not once, but three times, all against Big Ten teams in Illinois, Minnesota and Purdue.Bumbaca: Legacy debate about Joel Stave won’t affect how he views his careerFor all of the conversations people have participated in Wednesday arguing the legacy of Wisconsin quarterback Joel Stave, only one Read…Moving onto his NFL career, Stave was originally signed by the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted free agent after not being selected in the 2016 NFL draft. He continued to practice with the Vikings as well as the Washington Redskins, Seattle Seahawks and New York Jets. This past April, the Jets waived Stave, putting him back up for grabs.Even though Stave has yet to appear in a regular season game — battling against the recent No. 1 draft Baker Mayfield — Stave will have a shot if the recent history of Browns draft picks continues. Though it’s more than likely the highly touted Mayfield will receive the lion’s share of playing time over the journeyman — this could be Stave’s chance to finally get in on some NFL action.last_img read more
