Warplanes from Libya's official government attacked an oil tanker docked outside the city of Sirte on Sunday, wounding three people and setting the ship on fire, officials said.

It was the third confirmed strike by the internationally recognized government on oil tankers, part of a conflict between competing administrations and parliaments allied to armed factions fighting for control of the country four years after the ousting of Muammar Gaddafi.
The recognized premier Abdullah al-Thinni has been working out of the east since losing the capital Tripoli in August last year to a rival faction. Both sides have been attacking each other with warplanes and thanks to loose alliances with former anti-Gaddafi rebels have also been fighting on several fronts on the land.
"Our jets warned an unflagged ship off Sirte city, but it ignored the warning," the eastern air force commander Saqer al-Joroushi told Reuters.
"We gave it a chance to evaluate the situation, then our fighting jets attacked the ship because it was unloading fighters and weapons," he added.
"The ship now is on fire. We are in war and we do not accept any security breaches, whether by land, air or sea," Jourushi added.
As I have said many times before, the solution will be either getting off the grid, or providing a constant base power to the grid such as nuclear.
" It's not the answer, it's one of the answers. The key is to get off the grid."
"SANTA CLARA -- Intel is turning the roof of its Santa Clara headquarters into a mini-wind farm with what it says is one of the largest micro-turbine arrays in the country.
The V-shaped formation of 58 wind-powered turbines, being installed this week, is expected to generate about 65 kilowatt-hours of power that will be used to provide electricity to the conference center in the rambling Robert Noyce Building on Mission Boulevard.
The chipmaker called the micro-turbines a "proof of concept" project.
"We are trying to understand how this type of technology integrates into Intel and where are the best locations for it around the world," said Marty Sedler, director of Intel's global utilities and infrastructure.

"We'll share the data and share the information so other people can apply it to their own businesses and homes," he said.
The micro-turbines are 6 to 7 feet tall, weigh about 30 pounds each and are positioned at the roof's edge where they can gather the most wind, which averages about 8 to 9 miles per hour in the area. They share the roof with an array of solar panels.
"This is just another prong adding to our sustainability program," Sedler said
Intel's new wind turbines arrive at a time when major tech companies are turning to green power.
That article just explains the rates are cooling off because of the long holiday weekend.
VERY large crude carriers and suezmaxes are seeing spot rates cool off, as chartering activity slows due to traders and brokers in London offices preparing for the long bank holiday weekend.
I use it and it will pay off if you are trading enough money...Tradewinds comes in at a far second. First thing I do in the morning is read tanker news and trade accordingly.
" blind from birth has no idea that there is sky, New York, Los Angeles"
The BfB individual has the reports and stories of many individuals who have been to and RETURNED from those areas.
Contrast that with God, whom even Jesus said no man has ever seen (John 1:18)
And, in the case of the BfB individual, while (s)he may not be able to *visually* experience the places you list, (s)he most certain can experience those places through sound, smell, taste, and touch.
Contrast that with things that are not themselves "provable" through sensory experience. Here folks infer purposefulness (in the universe) and the existence of a thing (God) due to the existence of another thing. This is the classic teleological argument and is employed by the writer of Rom:1:19-20
My oldest daughter celebrated Pentecost in Rome, at the Vatican, with Pope Frances[He gave the mass} last year.
dakine,then we disagree.I personally don't know any blind people.
I have however had contact with 4 or so truly blind people on this board.Some of them believe the Earth is 5 to 6 thousands years old.I don't know how stupid a person need to be to believe that..I notice you get around it by believing one year could have been millions of years.You also believe God put the stars in the sky on the 4th day.Do your have any understand of what a star is or how they evolve? Do you know the sun is a star?
As for having faith a God exist.There is zero chance the God in the ,book of myths, exists and you should be glad.That God is a terrible being not worthy of any respect,let alone worship.
Getting back to LA,NY and the sky.You can hear traffic,feel walls and even feel the air,so they become logical.
To believe in God is being truly blind.
"The Sky,NY and LA are logical."
Nothing logical at all about them to a blind man from birth Mr. lake. One would have to have faith in your explanation of them never knowing if they are real, because they are unseen? How is the sky real to a blind man who has never seen anything looking up except darkness??? vps has far more logic than you. As I explained to you long ago, God reveals himself to those who seek him. You don't seek him, so I doubt there will be a revelation to you, so much of what you say is just why I expect to see you say and thus you are fulfilling old prophecy perfectly. This strengthens my faith even more. Have a blessed Pentecost celebration Sunday.
lake- "... the secrets of the Lord is with them that fear God, which is the beginning of wisdom." If you truly want to know what the Bible says and means, you must first have faith. How do you get faith? Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
I believe you quoted only one half of the time scripture...for it actually reads- 2 Peter 3:8- ...be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
I believe this statement clearly indicates that the possibility that time as we know it upon earth does not exist in heaven. Indeed, a scientific theory of frozen time (FTT) exists. Thus, given that the emphasis of creation took place in the earthly realm, written for man's benefit, it is quite evident God provided this explanation with the traditional 24 hour time period.
Bottom line however, God created all things!
...and your post speaks well coming from a blind man. Scoff all you like lake, it's obvious you certainly never learned much from reading it.. perhaps you should give it another try!
Your comparison is not very good. The Sky,NY and LA are logical.
What you believe is void of logic. Considering the harm it done, it's tragic. Look at poor old VPS. He thinks the Earth is 6000 years old. How stupid do you have to be to believe that?At least you know better, but do you even understand how silly it is to think a God put the Stars in the sky on day 4.The Bible is truly a children's book ,in so many ways.
That's great news, I am planning a fishing trip in Silver Bay the last week of June. Warm water temps bring the walleye and lake trout to feed in abundance. Here's hoping it raises a degree or two before I arrive.
Thanks for the info.
