SILVER CITY ― The Silver City Museum in Silver City, New Mexico—known for its wealth of cultural heritage and history—has received accreditation from the prestigious American Alliance of Museums (AAM). “We’re thrilled to have received this accreditation and acclaim from the AAM, and we know this is a testament to the quality of our museum and to the dedication of our staff and community,” Museum Director Bart A. Roselli said. “The Silver City Museum is a gem for heritage and cultural-minded travelers, as well as for locals interested in learning the rich history and culture of our area. Whether it’s your first visit to Silver City or your hundredth, we invite you to stop by and dive into the heritage of our town.” The museum, which had been previously accredited and had not gone through the accreditation process in 15 years, now joins the seven other accredited museums in the state. One of the smaller museums on the elite list, Silver City Museum also was awarded the AAM’s Gold Standard Award. SCM News: “Under new leadership, the museum is headed in an exciting direction,” Town Manager Alex Brown said. “We applaud the staff and leadership for their dedication and hard work, and we look forward to seeing increased growth in tourism as a result of this recognition.” With revolving exhibits, as well as a wide array of historical area collections, the Silver City Museum offers engaging glimpses into the past in areas such as ranching, mining and Native American culture. Additionally, the museum hosts a variety of events, including panel discussions, lectures, workshops, and films, which offer an interactive and immersive Silver City experience. Roselli is confident this designation will increase the area’s heritage tourism—an increasing trend where visitors seek out cultural and heritage experiences such as museums, historical sites and heritage areas in the areas they visit. “We take great pride in our community in Silver City, and a fun and exciting way to see and explore that pride, our traditions and who we are is to visit our award-winning museum,” Brown said.

The consignment consisted of 32 tonnes of stainless steel and columns weighing 9 tonnes each. Four trucks and three specialised trailers were required for the transport.”Our experience with project transports was very helpful in the loading and transporting of the large OOG items for the plant,” said Johanna Hagström of Blue Water in Gothenburg.Blue Water explained that working closely with Malmberg made the job easier since it had a good understanding of what the Swedish company required.Blue Water has also recently transported five 29 m long beams for the construction of a church hall in Torshavn on the Faroe Islands.The beams were transported via ro-ro ship. “When the beams are driven onboard the ship without lifting them by crane it minimises the risk of damaging,” said Bent Rasmussen who is responsible for Blue Water in Hirtshals.The company’s operation in Hirtshals handles all of Blue Water’s transports to the Faroe Islands.”We have transported an oven for an incineration plant in Torshavn and a transformer for a new wind park in the Faroe Islands using the ro-ro method,” added Rasmussen.Blue Water has two offices in Iceland and one on the Faroe Islands, as well as three branches in Greenland. www.bws.dk

EUROPE: Agreements to establish an equally-owned company to co-ordinate the construction of the Rail Baltica standard gauge line between the Polish border and Tallinn were signed by representatives of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia on October 28. ‘This is the largest-scale joint project in the history of our country, and the establishment of a joint venture shows that all countries are taking the project seriously’, said Estonia’s Minister of Economic Affairs & Infrastructure Urve Palo. RB Rail is to be based in Riga and will be responsible for project development, approving important decisions and marketing. It will be owned by national companies Rail Baltica Statyba (Lithuania), Eiropas Dzelzcela Linijas (Latvia) and Rail Baltic Estonia, which will each make a start-up contribution of €0·65m, hold a one-third stake and appoint two board members. Each country would finance and own its section of the 728 km double-track 1 435 mm gauge electrified line, which would be designed for mixed-traffic operation. It is envisaged that 240 km/h passenger trains would run every 2 h, taking around 4 h from Tallinn to the Polish border.A 2011 study by Aecom priced the project at €3·68bn. Latvia provisionally estimates its 235 km section would cost €1·27bn, while Estonia expects to finalise the route for its €1bn section shortly, based on studies undertaken by Hendrikson & Ko. The three countries envisage up to 85% EU co-financing, which Lithuania’s Minister of Transport Rimantas Sinkevičius said would be essential. The countries plan to submit their first applications for funds February 2015. Detailed studies are to be undertaken in 2016-19, with construction to start in 2020 for completion in 2024.The route would pass to the west of Vilnius, but at Lithuanian insistence there is provision in the agreement for a future branch to its capital.The creation of the joint venture ‘is a long awaited event for all three Baltic countries’, said Latvian Minister of Transport Anrijs Matīss. ‘This important transport artery will serve as a bridge between Europe and the Baltics, and contribute to economic development.’

Champion swimmer Alia Atkinson began her 2020 season with a third-place finish in the 50m breaststroke on the opening day of the FINA Champions Swim Series at the Shenzhen Universiade Center Swimming Natatorium in Shenzhen, China, yesterday. Atkinson, the short course world record holder, took bronze in 30.63 seconds behind United States’ Molly Hannis in 30.49 seconds and winner Martina Carraro of Italy, who touched the wall in 30.38 seconds. Carraro, the 2018 Short Course World Championship bronze medallist, was 0.79 seconds off her personal best of 29.59 seconds set in 2018 in Hangzhou, China. The 26-year-old said that she was pleased with her effort and the competition format, believing that it offers a new challenge.“The result is quite OK for me as it is my second best time in the event. It’s cool to have four swimmers in the final because it’s a different type of competition. It is new and I’m happy about it,” Carraro said.Atkinson is making her debut in the competition, which is in its second year, having been specially invited to compete exclusively with the top swimmers from around the world. The first meet of the circuit, according to her, serves as a measuring tool to assess her preparations for the Olympic Games later this year. “Being the beginning of 2020 and given the field of athletes here, this competition is important to see where I am and also to measure what I can succeed at, at the Olympics, what is in reach or not,” Atkinson said.Atkinson earned US$6,000 (J$793,000) for her third-place finish and will have an opportunity to increase her total when the second day of the first meet begins today at 8:19 a.m. She will battle Carraro again, this time in the 100m breaststroke along with China’s Yu Jingyao and Canada’s Sydney Pickrem, the 2019 world champion in the 200m breaststroke and individual medley bronze medallist The second meet of the series will take place in Beijing this weekend starting on Saturday.
