JOHN, B.C. – Fort St. John City Council has approved the purchase of a special operations and hazardous materials response vehicle for the Fort St. John Fire Department.The Fire Department received only one bid for the project from Safetek Emergency Vehicles of Abbotsford. The bid for $1.4 million including taxes will be funded from money carried over from the 2017 budget and money budgeted in 2018 and 2019 since the vehicle takes 400 days to build.

Dubai: US-based investment firm Carlyle Group will buy a stake worth several billion dollars in Spanish oil giant Cepsa from Abu Dhabi sovereign wealth fund Mubadala, the companies said Monday. The deal comes six months after Mubadala scrapped plans for a stock market listing for Cepsa, Europe’s largest privately owned oil and gas company which is fully owned by the UAE fund. Carlyle will buy between 30 and 40 percent of Cepsa, the companies said. The financial terms were not disclosed, but the deal values Cepsa at 12 billion which would make Carlyle’s stake worth up to 4.8 billion. The transaction is expected to be completed by the end of 2019. The Abu Dhabi fund will remain the majority shareholder of Cepsa. Mubadala, which has held a 100-percent stake in the Spanish company since 2011, announced in September 2018 that it planned to sell a 25-percent share to raise around 2.3 billion. A planned initial public offering (IPO) was scrapped the following month. Cepsa is focused on oil and gas refining and distribution in Spain. It is also present in oil and gas exploration and production both in Latin America and North Africa.
The OSU men’s swimming team practices leading up to meets against Michigan State and the University of Pittsburgh on Jan. 20 and 21. Credit: Sydney McNulty | Lantern reporterThe Ohio State men’s swimming team is set to compete in back-to-back dual meets this weekend, starting on Friday at Michigan State and continuing in Columbus on Saturday, hosting the University of Pittsburgh.The Buckeyes head to East Lansing, Michigan, after a dominant performance against Cincinnati, setting three pool records at Keating Aquatic Center.Carrying that momentum is vital heading into a double header, graduate senior Josh Fleagle said.“It’s definitely not easy,” he said. “We just take it one practice at a time, one meet at a time and we look forward to new challenges, competition and we love racing.”It will be a quick turnaround, but Fleagle believes the team’s experience will give the Buckeyes an upper hand.“When we go to Big Tens and NCAAs, it’s four or five days of just swimming,” he said. “So two days isn’t that bad, granted we will get back a little bit later on Friday from Michigan State. But we are pretty used to it.”The Buckeyes will swim against the Spartans for the first time this season. Senior Matt McHugh said the results of the meet will give some insight into the team’s level of conditioning.“It’ll be good to see how we go up against Michigan State in a dual meet,” he said. “It’s a good indication to see where we need to improve, and what events we need to put certain people in.”In facing both a conference and a out of conference opponent this weekend, the Buckeyes are keeping the same mindset: competition is competition, said Fleagle.“I think right now the positivity is really up and obviously, the goal is to get best times in everything we do,” he said.Competition is scheduled to start at 5 p.m. on Friday and at noon on Saturday.
Can Ohio State vanquish their demons and be successful in West Lafayette? West Lafayette, Ind., has not been friendly to the Buckeyes. The last time OSU traveled to Purdue in 2009, the then-No. 7 Buckeyes lost to a 1-5 Purdue team, 26-18. The upset was not an isolated incident. The Boilermakers have actually won three of their past five home games against OSU. Coach Luke Fickell said he can recall almost every detail from the 2009 game and is very aware of how difficult it is to walk out of Purdue with a victory. “We’re 2-2 over there in the last 10 years,” Fickell said during his press conference on Tuesday. “If that’s just not enough to open your eyes and make sure you understand. It will be pounded home … it’s going to be a battle.” Which players on Purdue’s offense could hurt OSU? The Boilermaker offense is balanced, but has lacked explosiveness as of late. The team hasn’t scored more than 18 points in any of its past four games, but averages 25.9 points per game on the year. Its rushing attack, ranked 44th nationally, features junior running backs Ralph Bolden and Akeem Shavers. The duo splits the majority of the carries and have rushed for eight touchdowns on the year. Junior Caleb TerBush starts at quarterback for the Boilermakers. He’s thrown for 1386 yards and 10 touchdowns this season, but is also a threat on the ground. Overall, the 16th ranked Buckeye defense shouldn’t have any problems. With the possible return of Jordan Hall will Carlos Hyde get some playing time? It may come as a surprise, but OSU’s leading rusher this season is sophomore Carlos Hyde. Despite that fact, Hyde’s playing time has been limited when fellow running backs junior Jordan Hall and senior Daniel “Boom” Herron have both been available to play. With Hall sidelined for last week’s 34-20 win over Indiana, Hyde ran for 105 yards and a touchdown. All signs seem to indicate Hall will be available for this week’s game against Purdue and Herron will surely be the Buckeyes’ starter at running back. Fickell would not commit to Hyde receiving playing time. “Not sure just yet,” Fickell said. “We need to see how those guys practice. A lot of that stuff depends on how you practice.” Will the Buckeyes have their Big Ten Championship hopes derailed? OSU has a legitimate chance to win the Big Ten Championship. If the team can win the remainder of its games and Penn State loses twice before the season ends, the Buckeyes will win the Leaders Division of the Big Ten and appear in the inaugural Big Ten Championship Game. Purdue has other plans, but Fickell will be sure his team knows what’s at stake. Expect the Buckeyes to continue their success running the ball and rely on a defensive that has a clear athletic advantage over the Purdue offense. Barring a disastrous, turnover-plagued game from freshman quarterback Braxton Miller, the Buckeyes will take the game, which will be closer than the score indicates. Final score prediction: Ohio State 34, Purdue 21
This season hasn’t been an easy one for Chelsea but Willian still believes that they can secure the Champions League for the upcoming season – and a win against Liverpool would help them massively.The Brazilian winger is aware of the fact that by beating the Reds, they can close the gap between these two to just two points – and it is something which is not impossible to overcome at the end of the season.The Chelsea offensive player spoke about the upcoming game as he said, according to Goal:Report: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“It’s a massive game because we still have a chance of catching them and qualifying for next season’s Champions League, but to do that we have to win this game, we have to win every game.”“We are playing at home but they are a good team who are full of confidence so we have to pay great attention in every type of situation. We want to win the game and we have prepared very well.”“We have to win these two games, especially when you play at home. We cannot lose points at Stamford Bridge. We are ready to fight to try to win these matches.”
