Trump is a White Nationalist.

Trump is a White Nationalist. I hope the FBI has noticed. If Sanders becomes POTUS, I am sure that Trump will be added to the FBI list if they have, for some strange reason, neglected to classify Trump as a White Nationalist before that.

Thank you for posting this. The French involved in these massive protests are, unlike most Americans, reality based.

Caught on Camera: Containership Takes Out Crane in Busan, South Korea
April 6, 2020 by Mike Schuler

A major accident was caught on camera today at the Port of Busan today when a containership struck multiple shoreside gantry cranes and another ship while berthing.

The video shows the Milano Bridge approaching its berth with the assistance of tugs at Busan New Port. In the video, you can one of the cranes collapse over the stern of the Milano Bridge. Another two cranes were also impacted along with a second ship, identified Seaspan Ganges.

No injuries were reported.

Check out the incident video below:



Built in 2018, the Milano Bridge is a 13,900 TEU containership that is 365.94 meters in length overall (LOA).

The incident was also captured from a second viewpoint in the video below (which appears to be sped up):

Are Companies Doing Enough to Protect Offshore Workers from 🌊 Storms?

SNIPPET:

By Arnold & Itkin Law Firm

On September 29, 2015, the El Faro, a cargo ship owned by TOTE Maritime, disembarked Jacksonville, Florida. It was supposed to arrive in Puerto Rico a few days later. However, at the same time, Tropical Storm Joaquin was gathering strength a few hundred miles to the cargo ship’s east. By September 30, the storm had grown into a Category 3 hurricane.

On October 1, 2015, the El Faro became a household name in America.

The cargo ship, along with 33 crew members, had vanished as it sailed into the hurricane. After an extensive search, the El Faro was declared sunk. The search for survivors was called off on October 7, and all 33 crew members were presumed dead. Their bodies were never recovered.


What Happened to the El Faro?

Watch: Containership Takes Out Cranes at Kaohsiung Port in Taiwan 👀

A 316-meter-long containership took out two cranes at the Port of Kaohsiung in Taiwan.

The port reported that the OOCL Durban was being moved from another area of the port when it scraped another docked ship, pushing it into a ship-to-shore crane which subsequently collapsed. The OOCL Durban was not carrying any cargo at the time.


A second view of the incident shows workers scrambling for cover as the crane and adjacent cargo stacks collapsed on the pier.


Reporting indicates two workers were trapped inside the wreckage and were later rescued without injury. Another suffered a cut to the arm.

A statement from the Port of Kaohsiung said the OOCL Durban was bound for Pier 66, belonging to Yang Ming, when the incident occurred.

“The ship was booked to berth at Pier 66 of Kaohsiung Port, but when the ship passed through Pier 70, it collided with the bow of the “Yong Hung Ship (Gross Tonnage 32,720)” anchored at Pier 70 slightly damaged, and one of the overhead crane One GC8 bridge crane. After the collapse of the GC8 bridge crane, the adjacent GC6 crane was seriously damaged. A total of 1 collapsed, 1 severely damaged but not collapsed and 30-50 containers were damaged, and 1 GC8 bridge crane was caused,” the port said in a statement (translated in english by Google).

The OOCL Durban later docked at Pier 66 for investigation.

COSCO Ship Loses Containers During Pacific Crossing

A COSCO containership en route to Long Beach, California reportedly lost dozens of containers overboard in the Pacific Ocean last month.

The ship, identified as the 4,500 teu MV Cosco Nagoya, has returned to Korea and AIS shows its last known position in Gwangyang.

The incident reportedly occurred on or shortly after November 23rd as the vessel was sailing from Busan, South Korea to the United States, according to marine claims consultancy WK Webster, which first reported on the accident.

The company sent a surveyor to assess the damage who reported back 59 containers impacted including 27 collapsed and 32 overboard. A spokesperson for the company noted that the accident was not as serious as initially thought.

AIS data from MarineTraffic.com shows the COSCO Nagoya departed Busan New Port early on November 22. The following is the track of the voyage showing it turned around on November 24th at 09:54 UTC.

The COSCO Nagoya, built in 2008, is registered in Panama and measures 260 meters in length.

The incident follows the loss of more than 100 containers from the ZIM Kingston during a powerful storm in October off British Columbia as it awaited entry to the Port of Vancouver. It also comes nearly one year after the ONE Apus lost more than 1,800 containers overboard also while en route to Long Beach, kicking off a winter season that was marked by a high number of cargo losses on the transpacific.

Car Carrier Felicity Ace Abandoned After Catching Fire in Atlantic Ocean

A car carrier is abandoned and on fire in the North Atlantic near the Azores.

All 22 crew members of the M/V Felicity Ace abandoned ship safely and were picked up by a tanker after the car carrier caught fire approximately 90 nautical miles southwest from the island of Faial in the Azores on Wednesday morning.

The Portuguese Navy has been responding with the rescue being coordinated by the Ponta Delgada Maritime Search and Rescue Coordination Center (MRCC Delgada).

The fire in the cargo hold was still active as of Thursday.

Felicity Ace’s crew members have since been transferred from the tanker Resilient Warrior to the Horta airport by a Portuguese Air Force EH-101 aircraft.

No injuries or pollution have been reported.


The owners of the Felicity Ace have arranged for a tow of the burning the ship. The Portuguese Navy ship NRP Setúbal has remained on scene to monitor the situation.

Felicity Ace departed from Emden, Germany on February 10 and was en route to Davisville, Rhode Island when the fire occurred in the ship’s cargo hold. The ship is reportedly carrying a cargo of Porsches and Volkswagens, as reported by the website The Drive.

The Felicity Ace is registered in Panama and was built in 2005. It is operated by Japanese shipping line Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL).

The Portuguese Air Force has now released video of the rescue:


The fire is reminiscent of the Sincerity Ace which caught fire in the Pacific Ocean approximately 1,800 nautical miles from Oahu on New Year’s Eve in 2018. Five crew members died in that accident and the ship was eventually towed back to Japan.

This latest incident appears likely to join the ever-growing list of infamous car carrier accidents which include Cougar Ace (stability), Baltic Ace (collision/sinking), Hoegh Osaka (stability), Hoegh Xiamen (fire), Golden Ray (stability), Modern Express (stability), Grande America (fire) and Sincerity Ace (fire). A recently published NTSB report on the Hoegh Xiamen fire, which took place at the United States’ Port of Jacksonville, said an improperly disconnected car battery in a used vehicle started the fire.

Agelbert COMMENT: Notice the number of stability related sinkings. 👀 The stability of a ship at sea is directly related to the sea state. While it is true that a ship that has unbalanced cargo or is too high in the water can have stability problems in a normal sea state, all ships can become unstable in a sufficiently high sea state. The predicted ocean wave activity due to Catastrophic Climate Change portends routine 7 (20 to 30 ft) to 🌊 9 (Over 46 ft) sea states, so expect more stability caused sinkings unless these ships are redesigned to handle routine 9 plus sea states.
