THE TUGS

It is a vessel between 80’ and 120’ in length and of 750 to 4,000 horsepower.It may be single screw or twin screw.It may have a Kort nozzle, and may even have flanking rudders.However,there is one sure way you can tell if it is a harbor tug:The mast will be bent and the visor around the wheelhouse will be dented.
The description that the captain gave was accurate enough,eventhough it was very general.Most harbor tugs would fall into this range of characteristics and his reference to the bent mast and dented visor is also accurate.These battle scars are the inevitable consequence of working in close quarters situations.
Most tugs are intended for general towing service,but appearance of some may indicate a specialized service for which they were originally intended of for which they were once employed.Railroad tugs have high pilothouses to give visibility over the loaded car floats.Canal boats have low wheelhouses and short stacks to enable them to pass freely under low bridges.tugs designed for shipwork have narrow wheelhouses and masts that can be lowered easily to avoid damage when working under the flare of the ship’s bow or overhang at its stern.However, the need for tugs to do shipwork increased in recent years,and it is not unusual to see tugs built for different services working side by side while docking ships.
As the tug captain quoted above implied, the tugs assisting a ship are likely to be a diverse lot and will in all probability have different handling qualities and capabilities.These are important for the shiphandler or pilot to know. Principal among them are the following…...

...TUG OF WAR RULES AND REGULATIONS EVENT OVERVIEW In this trial of strength, two teams of up to eight men or women face each other and pull on opposite ends of a rope. The winner is the side that pulls the other team 13 ft. (4m) so that a central mark on the rope crosses a marked line. Once a team has pulled, no substitutes are permitted. Each team may have a coach to direct their pulling. PULLING TOGETHER Before pulling commences, the choice of ends shall be decided by the toss of a coin. The pull will have a three-minute time limit. If there is no winner at the end of three minutes, the judge will decide who the winner is by how far the tapes on the rope are on either side. The judge gives three commands: "Pick up the rope"; "Take the strain", and after gesturing clearly that he is about to give the final order: "PULL!" The teams the tug on the rope with all there might, and throw their weight backward as far as they can. Deliberately sitting on the ground, or failure to return immediately to the pulling position results in a caution. Two cautions are given prior to disqualification; however, a team can be disqualified without caution for any offense. WINNING A PULL A pull is won when one of the white side markings on the rope is pulled beyond the center ground markings, which is four meters. APPROPRIATE ATTIRE You may wear shorts or long pants, either will be......

Spike Jonze and Hollywood's Tug-of-War

...Spike Jonze and Hollywood’s Tug-of-War “The other day, I was lucky enough to be at an event to bring the arts back into schools and got to see an amazing collaboration between Yo-Yo Ma and a young dancer in LA, Lil Buck. Someone who knows Yo-Yo Ma had seen Lil Buck on YouTube and put them together. The dancing is Lil Buck's own creation and unlike anything I've seen. Hope you enjoy.” This is the preface given by Spike Jonze, to a video he filmed in April of 2011. In this video, an L.A. street dancer named Lil Buck performs a style of dance, which is commonly referred to as “gangster walking”, while classical musician Yo-Yo Ma accompanies him on the cello. The performance cannot be compared to anything else – the blend of street dancing and classical music is truly a unique combination. It’s a combination that we don’t see in everyday life, a distortion of reality – which is most likely why Jonze was drawn to the idea. From his early days as a music video director and all throughout his career, Spike Jonze has had a penchant for escaping the confines of reality. From one of his earliest music videos, which plays in reverse, to films like Being John Malkovich and Where the Wild Things Are, in which he literally brings the viewer in to a new reality. This distortion of reality is a mirror of Spike’s obsession with straying from convention, in narrative and filmmaking technique. While Spike and his characters may seek to escape the confines of reality, what they are really......

United States V. Carroll Towing Co

...Harbor at Pier 52. Grace Line, Inc., the charterer of the tug, ‘Carroll,’ was sent to move a barge from the adjacent pier, from which the Anna C was tied to. In the process of moving the barge, the lines between the barges at Pier 52 and the Public Pier were removed. To get to the barge, Carroll’s crew had to adjust the line on the pier. Because the line was not properly adjusted by the crew members, some of the barges broke away from the pier. At the time of this occurrence, there were no crew members on the barge of the Anna C; therefore, no one realized the condition of the barge. The Carroll Towing Company tug negligently caused the Anna C to break free and drift down the pier, causing it to hit a tanker’s propeller, which caused a hole on the side of the Anna C. Since there were no crew members aboard the Anna C, no one noticed that it was slowly sinking. The contents of the Anna C, which was flour owned by the United States, sunk in the incident at Pier 52. If any of the crew members had realized the condition of the barge, the Anna C could have been saved, along with the contents. The sinking of the barge results of two concurrent causes, as stated in the case: a misadjusted mooring line and an unattended barge. The question of the case concerns the responsibility for the sinking of the Anna C. The main question of this court case is, should the fault be blamed on Grace Line, the company that chartered the tug or the barge owner who left the barge unattended? Judge......

In 2007, NS formally organized these sponsors into the Teradata Users Group (TUG). The TUG brings together 24 business managers BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE Journal • vol. 16, no. 4 5 BI MATURITY and three representatives from IT who meet for two hours every month. The TUG chair comes from the business, and each business unit (including IT) has one voting right. The TUG creates special interest groups (SIGs) to focus on special issues, such as to drive metadata initiatives, investigate data quality issues, and select a next-generation BI tool for the company. The TUG is a vehicle for sharing information and spreading BI best practices. It allows business groups to voice opinions about BI, alter BI priorities, and provide input into BI decisions. Attendance at TUG meetings is taken very seriously, as TUG members cannot delegate their spots to others. The TUG members have learned a great deal about BI at NS through information shared by their peers. At each meeting, a subject-area expert describes existing data or applications to the TUG. These presentations raise awareness of the data that is available and suggest possible new applications. Lesson #3: Develop “hybrid” employees with both business and technical skills.

Ford Motor Company and Cruji Management Consulting (B)

... the automaker was founded by Henry Ford and incorporated in 1903. One of Ford facility in Canada is St. Thomas Assembly plant in Ontario. Opened in 1968 it produces the Crown Victoria Police Interceptor, Grand Marquis and Lincoln Town Car. In early May 1998, the company was concerned that 5 tug operators, each costing $100,000 annually over three shifts, was too many. A management consultancy company; Colin Cruji was hired to study and analyze the utilization of the tug operators and see if Ford could eliminate the number of tug operators per shift which were five operators for each shift at the time, keeping in mind that the current level of garbage collection should not be affected. In this report, an analysis will be conducted to determine the percentage of capacity utilization for each tug operator, the actual time they work , and whether or not its recommended to eliminate the number of tug operators while keeping the same standard service. Observations: After two weeks, Colin was still observing the tug operation at Fords St. Thomas assembly plant (STAP), Colin at that time had toured the plant and became familiar with its layout and operations, and had observed the tug operators at work, but he was not yet sure how to proceed, he decided to collect some data. Colin began his data collection to determine how many gondolas there were in the plant, and their locations. After he had located all the gondolas he calculated the time it takes each full gondola to......

Reducing Airline Fuel Consumption and Cost

...and spent another $100 in order to produce jet fuel. So far, the investment has paid off. According to Vinay Bhaskara, a senior aviation analyst at Airchive.com, Delta is saving $240 to $320 million per year (Zhang, 2014). Delta’s investment is also paying off for other airlines as well since, “Delta has flooded the marketplace with supply it would otherwise have purchased” (Zhang, 2014). Airport Taxiing Airplanes burn a lot of fuel taxiing from the terminal to the runway. Lufthansa is currently testing an electric tug that, “slides under an airplane's nose wheel and tows the plane, steered by the pilot moving the nose wheel just as if the plane were taxiing under its own power using its engines” (Mc Cartney, 2013). These electric tugs can help save $100 to $400 on an average 10 minute taxi depending on the model of plane. The cost for one of these tugs is currently between $1 million for the smaller tug and $2 million for the larger tug for jumbo jets (Mc Cartney, 2013).

Hensch the Knife Thrower

...confused. The minds are confused in condition of dividing up what good and bad thoughts and lusts are. Throughout the story, we are presented to the relatively disturbing, but yet relatable theme ‘’Moral Duality’’. The theme shines through by the main setting of the story, which happens to be in a circus, during an immensely thrilling performance. The theme ‘’Moral Duality’’ is for instance seen when the main person is watching the knife thrower’s show: ‘’ The knife struck beside her neck. He had missed – had he missed? – and we felt a sharp tug of disappointment, which changed at once to shame, deep shame, for we hadn’t come for blood, only for – well, something else;…’’ (ll. 58-61 P.2). forklar citatet Theme characterization support Firstly, it’s important to mention, that the theme ‘’Moral Duality’’ is supported several times in the main quote: ‘’ The knife struck beside her neck. He had missed – had he missed? – and we felt a sharp tug of disappointment, which changed at once to shame, deep shame, for we hadn’t come for blood, only for – well, something else;…’’ (ll. 58-61 P.2). Apart from the divided minds, the fact that the main persons are described in plural is really interesting. From the very beginning of the story, the narrator includes himself in a group of people, by using personal pronouns, such as ‘’we’’ and ‘’our’’: ‘’When we learned that Hensch the knife thrower was stopping at our town for a single performance on Saturday night, we hesitated, wonder......

Broken Home

...with no place to turn. I’m not on one side and I’m not on the other. I’m just lost in the middle with my sister and three brothers. When I closed my eyes, I imagined that it’s all a game of tug-of-war. I am the rope that both my parent so desperate to gain. They both pull without compromise, determined to win me over. Each pull is a painful blow, a searing pain that rips at my soul. Sometimes I think the solution would be to just go to one side. To give one of them the victory, but that means that the other has to declare defeat. I’m forced to choose between the two people I love most in the world. To decide which one I want to give up. How could I willingly tear a piece of my heart out like that? As much as I just want one place to belong, I can’t choose, not with so much at stake. I’m still stuck in the middle. The longer I’m there, the more I feel myself tearing, one strand at a time. With each tug, those knots that bound our family together start to unravel. I know that if I leave things this way, then I’ll eventually break down altogether. Soon the rope will tear in half, and as a result, both my parents will fall to the ground. Then I know that I’ve really lost. I wish they’d just stop pulling. I wish they wouldn’t fight over me with so much vigor. With each tug, they seem to be telling me, “We both want you so much that we’re going to fight for you, even if it means hurting you in the process.” It sounds ridiculous when I put it that way, but it’s true.......

Tug Robot

...As far as Aethon’s TUG robot goes, questions of its discontinuity are completely out of the realm of possibilities. TUG has done a tremendous job in helping hospitals around the U.S. reduce costs and increase efficiency. Its ability to blend into the environment of a hospital and work with minimum disruption towards employees is undeniable. It has an almost perfect design and programming that leads to little advancements needed in the future. Its true advancements rely mainly on how hospital will update and improve their facilities in the future to show TUG’s true potential. Unlike other similar devices that need certain infrastructure changes, TUG requires only a programmed map done at installation. For instance, some AGV systems require dedicated hallways for the use of its machines (Aethon, 2014, para. 1). This is important for older hospitals that cannot afford to make drastic changes to accommodate such devices. However, hospitals that are able to make upgrades in technology will have the opportunity to make the most out of their investment in TUG. These improvements in hospitals can be as small as improving the WIFI system to allow TUG to communicate with doors, elevators, alarms found in all facilities (Aethon, 2014, para. 3). The most important advancements in continuing progress for the device comes from the future programming to the system itself. Smaller Improvements such battery life, size, and speed are miniscule compared to the possibilities with changing......

16.1 Specific Performance

...16.1 Specific Performance The California and Hawaiian Sugar Company (C&H), a California corporation, is an agricultural cooperative owned by 14 sugar plantations in Hawaii. It transports raw sugar to its refinery in Crockett, California. Sugar is a seasonal crop, with about 70 percent of the harvest occurring between April and October. C&H requires reliable seasonal shipping of the raw sugar from Hawaii to California. Sugar stored on the ground or left unharvested suffers a loss of sucrose and goes to waste. After C&H was notified by its normal shipper that it would be withdrawing its services at a specified date in the future, C&H commissioned the design of a large hybrid vessel—a tug of a catamaran design consisting of a barge attached to the tug. After substantial negotiation, C&H contracted with Sun Ship, Inc. (Sun Ship), a Pennsylvania corporation, to build the vessel for $25,405,000. The contract gave Sun Ship one and three quarter years to build and deliver the ship to C&H. The contract also contained a liquidated damages clause calling for a payment of $17,000 per day for each day that the vessel was not delivered to C&H after the agreed-upon delivery date. Sun Ship did not complete the vessel until eight and one-half months after the agreed-upon delivery date. Upon delivery, the vessel was commissioned and christened the Moku Pahu. During the season that the boat had not been delivered, C&H was able to find other means of shipping the crop from Hawaii to its......

A Tug of War is described as “a contest in which two people or teams pull opposite ends of a rope in an attempt to drag the opposition over a central line.” (thefreedictionary.com) In NASCAR the tug of war has become a cultural one, where drivers have claimed that the corporation’s concern was more with the rules violations and less with driver safety. (Daft) One of the ways in NASCAR the tug of war was evident was in the inspection of drivers before the race began. They also strip down the winning car to ensure there is no tampering or cheating. They also set new rules for qualifying, changing the one-car qualifying against the clock, to the new all-cars qualifying against the clock; this, in turn, excited the fans and the action but further divided some of the drivers with the corporation over the issue of safety.
