zoom Polaris Shipping’s Very Large Ore Carrier (VLOC) Stellar Cosmo has not broken down and is not heading for repairs to Cape Town, as disclosed to World Maritime News.Holman Fenwick Willan Singapore LLP, speaking on the authority of the ship’s operator, said that the reports indicating that the ship was heading for repairs after developing a crack in the hull were not true and that the ship was in fact heading to Singapore for refueling.“Stellar Cosmo diverted from her voyage to China to the last reported site of the Stellar Daisy to take part in search and rescue operations. She has departed early from the scene and is heading to Singapore for bunkers before continuing her contractual voyage to China. The reason for her departure is to allow her sufficient bunkers to reach China and not for reasons of repairs as has been reported,” the firm said reacting to media reports.The 1992-built ship was also converted from a crude carrier to an ore carrier, a process that has been put under spotlight over the past few days as the ship’s owner faces criticism following the sinking of Stellar Daisy.The VLOC went missing on March 31 and is believed to have sunk some 1,700 miles east of the Port of Montevideo, Uruguay. Stellar Daisy was carrying eight South Korean and sixteen Filipino sailors.

INDIANAPOLIS – Health officials across Indiana are seeing an increase in the number of patients with respiratory illnesses; especially in children.The Indiana State Department of Health cannot confirm the increase is related to the recent surge of enterovirus D68 infections that has been reported in several surround states including Ohio and Kentucky.Health officials say enteroviruses are common with approximately 10 to 15 million cases occurring in the United States annually. There are more than 100 types of enteroviruses. Three people in Northern Indiana have tested positive for enterovirus/rhinovirus (rhinovirus is the common cold) by the State Laboratory. Further testing is needed to determine if the cases are EV-D68.“When evaluating patients with significant respiratory illness, it’s important to test for enterovirus because it helps healthcare providers rule out other treatable illnesses, such as influenza or bacterial pneumonia, and to know what viruses are circulating,” said State Epidemiologist Pam Pontones.“Practices such as washing your hands, covering your cough and staying home when you’re sick are more important than ever to protect yourself and others.”The State Health Department is working with local health departments and hospitals to conduct surveillance for additional cases of enterovirus. The Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC) is assisting the State with testing for the EV-D68 strain.Typically, EV-D68 causes upper respiratory illness, such as low-grade fever, cough, runny nose, sneezing and body/muscle aches. Infected individuals generally recover on their own without incident by treating symptoms. However, some individuals, especially those with weakened immune systems or underlying medical conditions, such as asthma, may experience severe complications and require hospitalization with supportive therapy.The department says enteroviruses, including EV-D68, are spread through close contact with infected people. To protect you and your family from becoming infected with enterovirus or other illnesses, follow the three C’s:Clean: Wash your hands frequently with warm soap and water. When this is not available, use an alcohol-based hand-sanitizer.Cover: Cover your cough with your sleeve or a tissue when you cough or sneeze.Contain: Prevent spreading illness to others by staying home if you are sick.
From illusion cakes to boozy bakes, there was a host of trends on display at the Cake & Bake Show held at London’s ExCeL last weekend (6-8 October).Some were displayed as part of the impressive cakes entered into the best of British competition – here’s a gallery featuring the standout pieces – while others were visible in the demonstrations and the products available to buy at the show. Here’s our pick of the trends:Illusion cakesFrom sandwiches to suitcases, corgis and even a bust of Queen Victoria, illusion cakes were a big part of the Cake Competition. It even extended to the cupcakes, with many featuring components of a full English breakfast, such as a fried egg complete with crispy edges and baked beans.Need further proof of their trend status? Contestants on the first episode of this year’s Great British Bake Off were tasked with creating an illusion cake in the showstopper.Blood and goreThis is Halloween, this is Halloween! Conveniently, the Cake & Bake Show took place in October meaning spooktacular cakes, such as the above bleeding heart or zombie cake, were not out of place. Gory cakes are gaining popularity, though, as bakers find ways of creating more realistic blood and gore for truly scary, but impressive, centrepieces.Boozy bakesBrits love a boozy bake, from G&T cupcakes to chocolate porter cakes. This is evident from the sheer volume of alcohol brands at the show, such as Aluna Coconut rum, Darnley’s Dry Gin and Mozart Chocolate Liqueurs – great for sipping, but also for baking. The latter even recommends recipes on its website from a chocolate liqueur cupcake to a boozy chocolate cream gugelhupf (a yeasted marble cake made in a Bundt mould).Edible bouquetsWhy send flowers when you can send doughnuts? Or cakes? Say sorry, say I love you, or treat that special someone with an edible bouquet. They’re growing in popularity, with many seen during National Cupcake Week, and are likely to grow further as Valentine’s Day draws near.Cake stencilsThe devil is in the detail, as the old adage goes. Bakers can add detail to their cakes and bakes with stencils, such as the ones pictured above found at the Sugar Vanilla Stencils stand. From spooky spiders to cheerful Christmas designs, beautiful flowers and more, they’re great for adding patterns to cakes with the use of lustre or royal icing.
