But when the player in question is the son of one of the greatest NFL players of all-time, it’s going to get some extra notice.According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, UCF defensive back Rahsaan Lewis has decided to leave the Knights and enter the transfer portal. Rahsaan Lewis is the son of Hall of Fame NFL linebacker Ray Lewis.Rahsaan comes from a big family of football players as well. His brother Ray Lewis III played for Miami (FL) and Coastal Carolina, while his other brother Rayshad played for Utah State and Maryland.Lewis had four tackles in two games for the Knights last season.Ray Lewis’ son, Central Florida defensive back Rahsaan Lewis, has entered NCAA transfer portal and intends to transfer, according to a source— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) April 24, 2019Rahsaan was only a two-star prospect coming out of high school last year.Given his father’s ties to the cities of Baltimore and Miami, any school in one of those areas would certainly be worth keeping an eye on as a potential destination.Ray Lewis was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2018 following a 16-year career that included 13 Pro Bowls, ten All-Pro selections, and two Super Bowl wins. He was a two-time Defensive Player of the Year and the MVP of Super Bowl XXXV.last_img read more

Maersk CEO: We Need to Order Less Ships

first_imgWorld Maritime News Staff, October 9, 2014; Image: Maersk zoom Nils Smedegaard Andersen, Chief Executive Officer, A.P. Møller-MærskMaking money by investing into ships on speculation is limited, despite the fact that prices of ships are pretty low, Nils Smedegaard Andersen, Chief Executive Officer, A.P. Møller-Mærsk said yesterday in a keynote speech at Danish Maritime Days taking place in Copenhagen.As explained by Andersen, “ownership is a minus game” because apart of the price there are several other factors to consider when investing in new ships.“The chances are that if you buy a ship today it will cost you the financial cost, coupled with depreciation risk of technological innovation, making it obsolete. What is more, it will cost you quite a lot to stick with that ship for a while. This risk is hugely underestimated,” Andersen said.Maersk CEO said that their practice was to buy ships the company needs as late as possible, thus running less risk.One of the discussion topics of the forum was: Why shipping is not an attractive industry per se?Andersen said that blaming overcapacity, over-financing and too little scrapping was a very simplistic way of putting it. However, “ordering a little less and looking a bit further in the future, focussing much more on market leads” would be a way forward for the industry.Speaking of the future of the workforce, Maersk CEO referred to a good initiative in Denmark which saw establishment of a university study of marine transportation technology and management.“Making sure you have a pipeline of well educated people is absolutely feasible,” he said, adding that Maersk has had various education programmes so far for both high-school and university level attendees.“We have to be ready for the employees of tomorrow as they will ask more of us than just a salary.They want a vision. They want to know why are they there and feel a part of something that will change the world for the better,” he concluded.The Danish Maritime Forum opened its doors yesterday morning.The forum included group sessions, deep dives and panel discussions during which the participants were asked to come up with concrete ideas to solutions to the upcoming challenges for the industry.last_img read more
