Sympathy (from the Greek words syn "together" and pathos "feeling" which means "fellow-feeling") is the perception, understanding, and reaction to the distress or need of another human being. This empathic concern is driven by a switch in viewpoint, from a personal perspective to the perspective of another group or individual who is in need. Empathy and sympathy are often used interchangeably. Sympathy is a feeling, but the two terms have distinct origins and meanings. Merriam Webster defines empathy as "the feeling that you understand and share another person's experiences and emotions: the ability to share someone else's feelings." Their definition of sympathy is "the feeling that you care about and are sorry about someone else's trouble, grief, misfortune, etc.: a feeling of support for something: a state in which different people share the same interests, opinions, goals, etc." See professor Paul Bloom on empathy.
In order to get an experience of sympathy there are specific conditions that need to occur. These include: attention to a subject, believing that a person/group is in a state of need, and the specific characteristics of a given situation. An individual must first give his or her attention to a person/group. Distractions severely limit the ability to produce strong affective responses. Without distractions, people are able to attend to and respond to a variety of emotional subjects and experiences. Attention facilitates the experience of sympathy, and without giving undivided attention to many situations sympathy cannot be experienced.
In technical analysis, support and resistance is a concept that the movement of the price of a security will tend to stop and reverse at certain predetermined price levels. These levels are denoted by multiple touches of price without a breakthrough of the level.
Support versus resistance
A support level is a level where the price tends to find support as it falls. This means the price is more likely to "bounce" off this level rather than break through it. However, once the price has breached this level, by an amount exceeding some noise, it is likely to continue falling until meeting another support level.
A resistance level is the opposite of a support level. It is where the price tends to find resistance as it rises. This means the price is more likely to "bounce" off this level rather than break through it. However, once the price has breached this level, by an amount exceeding some noise, it is likely to continue rising until meeting another resistance level.
Vessels is the first full length album from psychedelic rock group Wolf & Cub. It was recorded in Adelaide, Australia from April 2005 and released on 28 August 2006. The album was mixed by producer Tony Doogan after lead singer Joel Byrne travelled to Scotland for 3 weeks. Tony Doogan previously worked with artists such as Mogwai, Belle & Sebastian, Super Furry Animals, Dirty Pretty Things and The Mountain Goats. The album was mastered by Greg Calbi in New York. Vessels features nine completely new tracks from the band and a reworking of their earlier single "Steal Their Gold". It peaked in the top100 of the ARIA Albums Chart.
The album was Drum Media's fifth most favoured album of 2006 as decided by over 20 reviewers. Internet publication and magazine, Mess + Noise, voted Vessels' album artwork as the best of 2006. The album was bestowed Album of the Week by popular alternative radio station Triple J in September.
Norwegian offshore vessel owner DOF Subsea has been awarded two contracts in the Asia Pacific region...DOF will be supporting Chevron with DP vessels, ROVs, AUVs, intervention, inspection, management and engineering services.
Fugro will deploy 2009-built multipurpose ROV support vessel Edda Sun to carry out the work ... “A routine programme of inspection work is a crucial part of ensuring the integrity of the subsea infrastructure and supporting safe, reliable operations.
"Sequentially, both our first quarter ROV revenue and average revenue per day on hire decreased 4% on flat days on hire ... Our fleet use during the quarter was 68% in drill support and 32% in vessel-based activity. At the end of March, we had ROV contracts on 95 of the 153 floating rigs under contract, resulting in a drill support market share of 62%.
FarSaga will be equipped with two WorkClass ROVs from C-Innovation suitable for operating to 3000 m water depth. The vessel will keep supporting exploration and production activities in the Brazilian continental shelf ... .
UTEC mobilised a DP2 offshore support vessel in early December 2019 with work- and observation-class ROVs and a nearshore survey work boat for the as-built campaign. The anchor debris clearance campaign used the same vessel with a sub-bottom profiler, a side-scan sonar, a multibeam echosounder and a magnetometer.
... surveys using remotely operated vehicles (ROV) for McDermott. For this project, the UK-based group said it had mobilised a DP2 offshore support vessel in December last year with work- and observation-class ROVs and a nearshore survey work boat for the as-built campaign.
The system can be deployed from an ROV support vessel or construction support vessel. By eliminating the need for a rig, operator savings can reach up to 70% of traditional vessel and support costs, potentially worth US$12 million on a 30-day multi-well intervention campaign.
This improvement resulted from higher seasonal activity for vessel-based services and an increase in the number of working floating rigs for which we provide drill support services ... Our fleet use during the quarter was 63% in drill support and 37% for vessel-based activity compared to 69% and 31%, respectively, for the prior quarter.
