The firms signed separate heads of agreement with Aneka Tambang Tbk last month aimed at manufacturing higher value products for batteries from the state-owned miner’s nickel output, said Septian Hario Seto, deputy for investment coordination and mining at the coordinating ministry for maritime affairs and investments.

One American, Two Russians Blast off to International Space Station | Top News

By Joey Roulette and Olzhas Auyezov

WASHINGTON/ALMATY (Reuters) – A Russian Soyuz spacecraft carrying a U.S. astronaut and two Russian cosmonauts blasted off from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on Wednesday and successfully reached orbit, live footage broadcast by Russia’s space agency Roscosmos showed.

The crew members travelling to the International Space Station (ISS) are Kate Rubins, a NASA microbiologist who in 2016 became the first person to sequence DNA in space, and Russian cosmonauts Sergey Ryzhikov and Sergey Kud-Sverchkov.

The mission is the last scheduled Russian flight carrying a U.S. crew member.

Since the space shuttle program ended in 2011, NASA has relied on Russia to ferry its astronauts to the space station, an orbiting laboratory 250 miles above Earth that has housed international crews of astronauts continuously for nearly 20 years.

The U.S. space agency in 2014 contracted Elon Musk’s SpaceX and Boeing Co

Who is Rutgers’ top football recruit Tywone Malone? His 8th grade DL coach can tell you

Along with Georgia Tech and NFL running back Charlie Rogers, former Rutgers star Jay Bellamy, who had a 14-year NFL career, former Rutgers linebacker Scott Gould, and colleagues Ralph Fierro and Jamil Hill, I helped coach a stacked Matawan Huskies youth football team in 2016.

That squad competed in the AYF Shore Conference and was ranked the third-best 14U team in the country, despite the majority of the team being 13-year olds. I also got to coach the kid who turned out to be the top player in New Jersey’s 2021 class.

I hadn’t planned to coach but came to practice one day with my son, Ethan, and Rogers asked me to demonstrate offensive and defensive line techniques. Before I knew it, the coaches were working with the skill players and the linemen suddenly were parked with me. I accepted the challenge, put the time in and helped develop them.
