Middle East Supply Chain Conference

The Middle East is assuming a pivotal role in the Chemical Supply Chain landscape.

The scale of growth of chemical markets in the Middle East over the next five years is phenomenal. However, can supply chain best practice be established and delivered in the same timeframe? The development of world-class infrastructure and manufacturing facilities needs to be sustained by first-class supply chains.

As Sukumar Narasimhan, Sr VP Supply Chain, Reliance Industries Ltd and a speaker at LogiChem Middle East says:
“The Middle Eastern chemical industry has been gifted with the best mix of capabilities in terms of the available natural resources. I perceive this to be a great opportunity for global collaboration where technology from the West and manpower from the Eastern economies can converge in the Middle East.”

Nfl Tickets – Nfc East Is Wide Open

Four weeks into the season, no team has separated itself from the rest in the NFC East. Thought to be one of the top divisions in all of football coming into the 2010 campaign, the NFC East has been a bit shaky to start the season. As of Oct. 8, the Washington Redskins, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants all sit tied for first place in the division at 2-2, with the Dallas Cowboys right behind them at 1-2. As of now, it’s tough to get a read on which teams are for real. Let’s take a look at each one.

Dallas came into the season as the overwhelming favorite in the NFC East. They were coming off of a division title in 2009 and a solid playoff victory over Philadelphia. Boasting an offense that featured Tony Romo and such weapons as Miles Austin, Dez Bryant, Roy Williams and Felix Jones, the Cowboys looked to be an offensive juggernaut in the making. However, a failure to establish the run and shaky defensive play quickly had the Boys at 0-2 and in danger of heading into their bye week 0-3. Dallas stepped things up against a good Houston Texans team, though, in Week 3 and looked like the team that so many people had purchased NFL tickets to see. The Cowboys have to dedicate themselves to running the ball more, but I still believe them to be the favorite in the division.

New York looked like it could be in for a resurgent 2010 season after a disappointing 2009 campaign. The team looked quite strong against the Panthers in Week 1, but we weren’t aware of how bad the Panthers were going to be at the time. A throttling at the hands of the Colts and a convincing loss to Tennessee left the G-Men floundering after three weeks. However, the New York defense finally showed up in Week 4 against the Bears, sacking Jay Cutler nine times in the first half on their way to a dominating 17-3 victory. The offense still needs to come around, but the Giants appear to be showing signs of life.

The Eagles entered 2010 ushering in the Kevin Kolb era, but their starting quarterback quickly went down with a concussion against Green Bay. Enter Michael Vick, who nearly led the Eagles back in that game and looked fantastic with Kolb sidelined in Week 2. Once Kolb was cleared to play most people expected to see him return to the field, but Andy Reid stuck with Vick. Vick shined again in Week 3 and looked solid in Week 4 until suffering a rib injury that knocked him out of the game. Kolb struggled a bit in replacing Vick against the Skins and will be the starter for the next couple of weeks. It’s difficult to predict how this will go.

The Redskins are 2-2, but have not looked all that great. Their big win in Donovan McNabb’s Philadelphia homecoming was an ugly one, one in which McNabb didn’t even play all that well. The team is hoping that Ryan Torain can help get the ground game on track, but I don’t think they’ve got the offensive weapons to compete for the division title. Keep in mind that McNabb still hasn’t received a contract extension from the Redskins, a sign that Mike Shanahan may not be sold on the signal caller.

NFL ? NFC East Division Review

The Cowboys’ disastrous season is being seized by the Giants that lead the Division 6-2 after Week 9, but there are some interesting Division games ahead that could change things up. 

The New York Giants finished 2009 with an even record 8-8, where they continued with their tradition of ruining the party of teams with stadium-opening games, as they added their sixth road win in a row in this type of games versus the Dallas Cowboys. Quarteback Eli Manning’s 4,021 passing yards made him the third Cowboy -Kerry Collins 4,073 and Phil Simms 4,044- in history to achieve it. It was also Manning’s fifth 3,000+ yards and 20+ touchdown consecutive season. 

Things are looking better in 2010 for the Giants that with a 6-2 they lead the NFC East, thanks to an impressive five win strike. Their next target is their division rival Dallas, a team in a precarious situation (1-7) that has just fired head coach Wade Phillips. With 2,075 passing yards and 17 touchdowns after Week 9, Quarterback Eli Manning is on his way to his sixth 3,000+ yards and 20+ touchdown consecutive season. In his second professional year wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is having an outstanding performance with 51 receptions and 9 touchdowns, surpassing the 47 receptions and 6 touchdowns from his rookie year.

In 2009 the Philadelphia Eagles clinched wild card and fell victims of the Dallas Cowboys 14-34, after an 11-5 in the regular season. Quarterback Donovan McNabb joined Pro Football Hall of Famers John Elway, Fran Tarkenton and Steve Young as the fourth player in NFL history to have more than 30,000 passing yards, 200 touchdowns passes, 3,000 rushing yards and 20 rushing touch downs. And with eight 50+ yards touchdowns wide receiver De Sean Jackson tied the NFL record.

The Eagles march in second place in 2010 with a 5-3 record, in a season that began with a 27-20 loss to Green Bay. If they defeat the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football, the team will have a tendency of losing one followed by two wins, to then begin the cycle again. 5 of their next 8 games will be against Division rivals. With McNabb’s departure to Washington, Kevin Kolb and veteran Michael Vick have been sharing roles, with 97 of 153 for 1035 yards and 6 touchdowns for Kolb, and 76 of 125 for 1017 yards and 7 touchdowns for Vick.

The Washington Redskins had a negative season in 2009, losing 12 of the 16 regular season games. 4 of those defeats came in the last 5 games of the years. They were the only team that placed two players in the top 10 in sacks, thanks to Andre Carter and rookie Brian Orakpo with 11 each. Also quarterback Jason Campbell had 1,000 completions that made him the fifth Redskin to do so.  And among active players, linebacker London Fletcher became the fourth player with most consecutive games, 151. 

The Redskins find themselves in the third seat of the NFC East in 2010, and after 4 wins and 4 losses they went to Bye on Week 9. They will return to action on Monday Night Football whey they receive division rivals Philadelphia (5-3), whom they defeated 17-12 in Week 4. In Donovan McNabb’s first season as a Redskin he was been encountering problems with head coach Mike Shanahan, who still doesn’t trust his quarterback.

The Dallas Cowboys clinched Division and made their 30th postseason appearance in a year where they also inaugurated a new stadium, setting an attendance record of 105,121 fans against the New York Giants. Their season ended in the Divisional Round versus Minnesota with a 3-34 defeat.  Quarterback Tony Romo set some franchise records that season with 4,483 passing yards, 347 completions and 550 attempts for the most in a season. And wide receiver Miles Austin joined Michael Irvin and Terrell Owens club of 80+receptions, 1,300 receiving yards and 10+ touchdowns in a single season. Tight end Jason Witten also had a distinguished season with 90+ receptions and 1,000+ receiving yards.

It looks like the 31st postseason appearance won’t happen for the Cowboys this 2010, as they find themselves sunk in the bottom of the NFC East, with a .125 win percentage for a 1-7. Their season began with a two loss strike, then they won their first and only game of the season on Week 3 at Houston 27-13, and went to Bye Week. Coming in from the break it all collapsed, and the Cowboys haven’t known victory since then. Their outlook is a with a 5 loss strike that threatens them to turn into 6 this coming Sunday at New York, when they visit the division leaders Giants (6-2) on Week 10. And it can not be forgotten that their starter quarterback Tony Romo broke his collarbone on the home defeat on Week 7 against the Giants, a sensible casualty for Dallas as he will be out at least until December.
