Both organizers hadn’t even dared to make any predictions ahead of the auction. “An average amount of € 15,000 per lot would be great,” both Luk and Gerald assumed.But on Friday evening it appeared that Luk and Gerald had been far too cautious. Fourteen of the sixteen unborn foals were auctioned for an astonishing amount of € 282,000, which means € 20,143 on average.“Absolutely fabulous!” Both auction organizers sounded carried away. “This collection should have been auctioned in the United Arab Emirates, but even there a live audience wouldn’t have been allowed. For that reason we were forced to stay in Belgium. A sheer online auction has never been our intention. Potential buyers had been able to put bids already on our website in the two days before the auction, but tonight was the real thing and they were ready waiting for the final moment.”Auctioneer Louis De Cleene knocked down two Chacco Blues at € 32,000 (sold to Canada) and even at € 36,000. The topseller, sold to Ireland, was the Chacco Blue x Vigo d’Arsouilles, of whom the mother, Funky Music (1.60m Grand Prix), had already produced two 1.60m Grand Prix horses: the approved sire El Toreo de Muze and Bretling dus Paradis Z. The embryo sold to an undisclosed buyer in Canada was a Chacco Blue x Balou du Rouet, out of the mother of Zangersheide sire Comilfo Plus Z and the 1.50m Grand Prix showjumping horse Cobalou.Watch a video of Chacco Blue:In between auctioning, special guest Rob Ehrens, chef d’equipe of the Dutch national jumping team, shared inside information about sires such as Darco, Casall and Heartbreaker. Pedigrees in hand, he often mentioned horses which had competed for medals with the Dutch team. The Heartbreaker x Cassini I, from the same dam as the 1.60m Nations Cup horse PSG Final, was sold to South Africa for € 26.000.The Catoki x Aganix du Seigneur from a half-sister of three 1.60m Grand Prix showjumping horses was sold to Denmark for € 19.000. Three lots yielded € 18.000 each and were sold in the Netherlands (Chacco Blue x Cormint from Casall’s half-sister) and in Belgium (Chacco Blue x Harley VDL from the Ta Belle van Sombeke damline, and Conthargos x Kannan from the Qerly Chin family).A French woman, a big fan of For Pleasure, bought two embryos which are related to this top sire. The For Pleasure x Quick Star and the Eldorado van de Zeshoek x For Pleasure were sold to her for € 17.000 euro each.Flanders Embryo Auction hopes to expand shortly with an embryo auction at Desert Horse Park in Thermal, California, USA. The auction, including a VIP champagne brunch, will be organized on Tuesday, 16th of March. The collection there will be unmatched. Luk Van Puymbroeck and Gerald Lenaerts are eagerly looking forward to the upcoming event. “We are still awaiting Corona regulation, but we are convinced that, in America, again we will realize a great auction.”View the entire studio auction collection HERE.

First Accessible Submarine in the World

first_imgHMS Alliance, the only surviving British WW2era ocean going submarine has become the first accessible submarine in the world.As part of the £7m conservation project to restore HMS Alliance back to her former glory, a lift has been installed to assist people with mobility difficulties to go on board the historic submarine.Chris Munns, Director at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum said,“The lift can transport one person in a wheelchair safely into the after-end of HMS Alliance. From that compartment they have an excellent view through the submarine engine room towards the control room.“It is really marvellous to be able to offer this service to our visitors and we are all very honoured at being the first submarine that can do so!”Members of the Gosport Access & Inclusion Groups visited the Submarine Museum today to test the new lift and experience going on board HMS Alliance for the first time. They were met by a submariner who told them about the submarine and shared some of his personnel stories of life on board.HMS Alliance was designed during WW2 for service in the Far East and was laid down in March 1945, a few months before victory was achieved. She then began a distinguished 28 year career during the Cold War until she retired in 1973 and became the centrepiece of the Submarine Museum in 1982.HMS Alliance had suffered severe corrosion during thirty years on display to the public. The project to save HMS Alliance received a £3.4 million lottery grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. A further £3.55 million has been donated leaving £50,000 left to raise.As well as the physical conservation, at the heart of the project is a new education programme and dynamic interpretation scheme which will bring Alliance ‘back to life’ for all visitors.Improvements will include dressing the accommodation spaces to reflect the decades of Alliance’s service from the 1940’s through to the 1970’s with interactive soundscapes that reflect how the submarine looked and felt whilst on operations.HMS Alliance is currently open to visitors until the end of the year. After that the historic submarine will be closed for the final stage of conservation works and reopened for Easter 2014.[mappress]Press Release, October 25, 2013; Image: Royal Navy Share this article October 25, 2013 View post tag: world View post tag: Accessible View post tag: firstcenter_img First Accessible Submarine in the World View post tag: submarine Back to overview,Home naval-today First Accessible Submarine in the World Training & Educationlast_img read more

Junior expands dining options for allergic students

first_imgAs a student nutritional adviser through Sodexo at Saint Mary’s College, junior Megan Steron works with Barry Bowles, director of dining services, to ensure students with allergies can access healthy options in the dining hall.Her role as a bridge between Sodexo, a food and facilities management services company, and students began her freshman year, she said.“I have celiac disease, so I have a really strict diet, and beginning my freshman year there were very few options,” Steron said, “So on a volunteer basis I worked with Barry every other week to give feedback about new things. I was heavily involved in advising the gluten free section in the C-Store and I also coordinated with students with other allergies … I had a feeling it was bigger than just me, and I was right.”This year, Steron has a table set up in Nobel Family Dining Hall in order to communicate with students who are trying to balance allergies with dining hall options.“Ideally, I would like all students with an allergy to talk to me … because that way [Barry and I] can know we have this many girls with this allergy, this many with that allergy … I want to get all the girls with allergy sensitivities to come to talk to me so I know what we’re working with,” she said.When a student approaches her table, Steron first encourages the student to set up an appointment with Barry to get a special sticker for their student ID card. The sticker allows the student to get special frozen items specifically for students with allergies, Steron said.“Then I would walk with you through the dining hall and point out areas that are easiest [to work with]. The international stir fry area is awesome,” she said, “I would … introduce key staff that are really strong with working with allergies, and then I would finish by bringing you by the corner where we have the pre-packaged items.”In conversation with the student, Steron said she would be sure to ask about their opinions on available options and ask what items the student would like to see.Steron said her mission is to talk to students and encourage them to open up about their allergies, and their input is taken seriously.“I would love as many girls as possible to talk to me so we can get a better feel of what people like, what can we change, what can we improve and what’s going to serve our community the best,” Sternon said.A significant improvement she has noticed since her freshman year is an increase in staff awareness of cross-contamination.“The biggest problem with celiac disease and some other allergies is cross contamination,” she said. “I have gotten sick from people using the wrong spoon on my food. When you have to be that concerned about cross contamination, that cuts out a lot of your options that might otherwise be safe … [but] it has gotten so much better.”As the primary link between students and Barry, she said she hopes students will feel comfortable sharing any questions or concerns with her.“If I was the only person on this campus [with an allergy] I would deal with it, but I’m not,” Steron said. “The first priority is getting everybody fed; the second priority is getting everybody fed well.” Tags: Barry Bowles, dining halllast_img read more

Among the users, 80 percent deposit a check remotely at least once a month, and 23 percent use it twice a month.“Convenience and saving time are paramount for today’s consumer, so it is no surprise that mobile deposit is gaining traction with banks and their customers,” Nessa Feddis, ABA SVP, said in a press release. “It doesn’t get much easier than depositing a check with the simple snap of a photo.”ABA also found online banking remains the top choice of U.S. consumers to conduct transactions, although mobile banking is steadily gaining ground. Mobile was the preferred banking option by 10 percent of consumers, up from 8 percent in 2013.Mobile banking sits behind branch offices, at 21 percent, and ATMs, at 14 percent, as the most popular options for consumers to do their banking.Credit unions are seeing similar numbers. In a survey conducted by CFI Group, credit union members rated online and mobile banking as “more important than any other aspect of the member experience.” continue reading »last_img read more
