The college town hosted College GameDay for the first time, ahead of Iowa State’s rivalry game against Iowa.That game is threatening to really drag out. The game has now been delayed multiple times, due to inclement weather in the area.It’s really nasty out there right now, and most of Jack Trice Stadium has emptied out. The Cyclone students stayed put though…for at least a bit.Storm is right over us now in Ames. I’d bet we’re still an hour away from resuming. Iowa State’s student section isn’t bailing. pic.twitter.com/suApdL03ru— Max Olson (@max_olson) September 14, 2019 After a while, the denizens of the Iowa State student section got restless, and did what you do when you’re in college and pumped full of college football-borne adrenaline, and the stadium security clears out: you run onto the field.So the Iowa State student section rushed the field after most of the security had gone inside…There’s some standing water on the field but the sun is coming back out. pic.twitter.com/fRl0DAbWV4— Cole Bair (@realColeBair) September 14, 2019And now students have stormed the field pic.twitter.com/sVf1nyxAdK— Travis Hines (@TravisHines21) September 14, 2019We’re nowhere near a conclusion to this game, whenever the students get back into the stands and the teams come back onto the field.There are over 13 minutes remaining in the second quarter, and Iowa State has an early (read: the game kicked off over three hours ago) 7-3 lead.Iowa opened the scoring on the first drive of the game, with a 15-play opening drive that resulted in a 25-yard field goal for Keith Duncan. Iowa State answered quickly, with a five-play, 86-yard drive that took less than two minutes.After a few nice passes by Cyclones’ star quarterback Brock Purdy, La’Michael Pettway exploded for a 51-yard touchdown run to put ISU up 7-3.The two teams traded a few punts, and that is where we stand. Hopefully the battle for the Cy-Hawk Trophy will get back underway tonight. Otherwise, it may wait until later in the season, if they have to call things tonight.last_img read more

Eurogate: Giant Boxships Bring Record Volumes

first_imgzoom Germany’s terminal operator Eurogate Group increased its container handling volumes Europe-wide in 2014 by 4.2 % to all time high 14.8 million TEUs, attributed to a rising number of mega container ships calling at the operator’s terminals.8.1 million TEUs were handled at the German terminal locations Bremerhaven, Hamburg and Wilhelmshaven, equivalent to a rise of 3.5 per cent overall.The trend among shipping lines to deploy ever larger vessels is continuing, says Eurogate. Only recently, the CSCL Globe (19,100 TEUs) called at Eurogate Container Terminal Hamburg. The MSC Oscar (19,224 TEUs), currently the largest container ship in the world, is expected at Wilhelmshaven on March 6. Emanuel Schiffer, Chairman of the Eurogate Group Management Board, said: ”The forecasts have proved correct. Our customers are calling at our container ports with ever larger container vessels. In the meantime, orders to build container ships with transport capacities of 22,000 TEUs are on the point of being contracted out. We are expecting this trend to continue. It presents considerable challenges for the infrastructure of the seaports as well as the superstructure of the container terminal operators.”Operating activities at the international Eurogate locations developed positively overall. The Italian container terminals managed slight growth of 0.3 per cent. Eurogate Tanger, located directly on the Strait of Gibraltar, raised volumes by 33.2 per cent. The throughput at the Ust-Luga Container Terminal increased by 68.1 per cent to 103,521 TEUs despite the Russian crisis situation.last_img read more
