The recent addition of singer Lyle Divinsky, who joined the band in 2016, fanned the flames of this already hot band.

Brighton boss Hughton: Dunk return key to Everton winby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveBrighton boss Chris Hughton was happy to have Lewis Dunk back for their 1-0 win over Everton.Dunk returned to keep a clean sheet alongside Shane Duffy in the heart of defence, and Hughton was pleased to see the pair rekindle their successful partnership.“It’s important because they know each other very well, and that’s not taking anything away from Leon Balogun, who’s played well in the last few games for us.“But they’re a partnership that know each other very well, and they had to deal with a fair bit of pressure towards the end of the game.“It’s been a good year for us. We’re on the back of two really good performances, both at home against two very good teams.“That puts us in good stead, but we now go through a difficult away game on Wednesday and we’ll have to show a lot of what we’ve showed over the last two games.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
zoomIllustration; Image Courtesy: NYK Line Japanese shipping companies K Line and NYK Line have teamed up with Chubu Electric Power and Toyota Tsusho on establishing LNG bunkering business in Japan.To that end, the quartet has launched two joint ventures on May 10, Central LNG Marine Fuel Japan Corporation and Central LNG Shipping Japan Corporation, which will run the business.The talks on potential cooperation were launched in January this year as the four companies wanted to tap into the growing interest in LNG as environmentally friendly fuel.This is in particular important taking into account the role of LNG as an alternative to heavy fuel in the anticipation of the entry into force of more stringent environmental regulations on a global scale.Compared to heavy fuel oil, the use of LNG can reduce emissions of sulfur oxides (SOx) and particulate matter (PM) by approximately 100 pct, nitrogen oxides (NOx) by as much as 80 pct, and carbon dioxide (CO2) by approximately 30 pct, a joint release said.
