Introduction The pre-Cambrian hematite schist formations located at Marampa were discovered in by Major N. Junner, a geologist with the Gold Coast Geological Survey. Exploration of the Marampa deposits followed quickly between and by the African and Eastern Trade Corporation Ltd, a shipping company. Estimates suggested there were twelve million tons of hard lateritic hematite ore in the deposits. Whilst the exploration was underway the company merged with the Niger Company in and renamed United Africa Co Ltd. The mine and port equipment was built by Fraser and Chalmers Engineering Works. At Marampa, this included complete washing, screening and loading equipment for the washed ore; conveying and storage equipment for the washed fines; conveying and storage machinery for the concentrates; and the concentration plant. At Pepel, this included a storage and handling plant for the washed fines and concentrates.

In the Victorian era , many popular beach resorts were equipped with bathing machines because even the all-covering beachwear of the period was considered immodest. This social standard still prevails in many Muslim countries. At the other end of the spectrum are topfree beaches and nude beaches where clothing is optional or not allowed.
In most countries social norms are significantly different on a beach in hot weather, compared to adjacent areas where similar behavior might not be tolerated and might even be prosecuted. In more than thirty countries in Europe, South Africa, New Zealand, Canada, Costa Rica, South America and the Caribbean , the best recreational beaches are awarded Blue Flag status, based on such criteria as water quality and safety provision.
Subsequent loss of this status can have a severe effect on tourism revenues. Beaches are often dumping grounds for waste and litter, necessitating the use of beach cleaners and other cleanup projects. More significantly, many beaches are a discharge zone for untreated sewage in most underdeveloped countries ; even in developed countries beach closure is an occasional circumstance due to sanitary sewer overflow.
In these cases of marine discharge, waterborne disease from fecal pathogens and contamination of certain marine species are a frequent outcome. The soothing qualities of a beach and the pleasant environment offered to the beachgoer are replicated in artificial beaches, such as “beach style” pools with zero-depth entry and wave pools that recreate the natural waves pounding upon a beach. In a zero-depth entry pool , the bottom surface slopes gradually from above water down to depth. Another approach involves so-called urban beaches , a form of public park becoming common in large cities.
Urban beaches attempt to mimic natural beaches with fountains that imitate surf and mask city noises, and in some cases can be used as a play park.

Formation of a time charterparty , same as a voyage charter, governed by the ordinary rules of the law of contract, i. The conclusion of commercial contracts, particularly charterparties, by an exchange of emails, once telexes or faxes, in which the terms agreed early on are not repeated verbatim later in the exchanges, is entirely commonplace. Chartering of vessel for a prolonged period of time increases risks of default from either side, especially at times of global financial uncertainty.
While owners are worried about financial sustainability of the charterers in case of sharp decline in spot rates, charterers in their turn concerned about uninterrupted utilisation of vessels under their commercial management throughout duration of charter. The court held that, while parties must have considered that Managers, when signing time charters, were acting on behalf of Registered owners, the latter never gave their authorisation to fix vessels on the terms proposed by Timecharterers.
Accordingly, Charterers claim against Registered owners failed and against Managers succeeded. The charterer has no proprietary interest in the vessel, i. The ship is not leased or withdrawn. Her services and that of her crew are put at the disposal of the charterers when the charter begins and when the withdrawal of the ship is spoken of it merely means that those services are no longer supplied.
Generally speaking, the charterer benefits from commercial use of the vessel, when the vessel acting in accordance with the charterer directions as to the cargoes to be loaded and the voyages to be undertaken, assuming such orders the charterer is entitled to give under the terms of the charterparty. See also view of the Court of Appeal on “the owners agree to let,” phrase.

Therefore, existing diagnostic strategies for detecting atheroma and tracking response to treatment have been extremely limited. The methods most commonly relied upon, patient symptoms and cardiac stress testing , do not detect any symptoms of the problem until atheromatous disease is very advanced because arteries enlarge, not constrict in response to increasing atheroma.
