Freight Tax and ILW are being almost invariably a percentage of the Freight. The result after deducting these items from Gross Freight is called Net Freight. The Voyage Estimation result can be calculated by subtracting expenses from income and dividing the result by the number of days taken for the voyage. Gross Daily Profit gives us an easily comparable amount for any variety of different voyages. To calculate the Net Daily Profit, it is essential to include the Daily Running Costs. A shipbroker or ship manager is not concerned as to how that daily figure is made up but will simply want a lumpsum per day.

Captain Picard and his crew pursue them to ensure that Zefram Cochrane makes his maiden flight reaching warp speed. A “bare bones” DVD of the film was released on November 9, 1999. Aside from the film, the contents include the original theatrical trailer and the introduction from the “Director’s Series” VHS release. Three-and-a-half years later, a two-disc “Collector’s Edition” was released with supplemental material and the same video transfer as the original DVD release. Among other special features, it contains a text commentary by Michael Okuda and an audio commentary from director Leonard Nimoy and star William Shatner.

Two Indigenous peoples Cartier had captured previously now served as guides, and he and his men navigated the St. Lawrence, as far as Quebec, and established a base. Vasco da Gama, sailed in command of a fleet under instructions to reach Calicut , on India’s west coast. This he did after a magnificent voyage around the Cape of Storms and along the unknown coast of East Africa. Soon trading depots, known as factories, were built along the African coast, at the strategic entrances to the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf, and along the shores of the Indian peninsula. It was in the end the Portuguese, not the Turks, who destroyed the commercial supremacy of the Italian cities, which had been based on a monopoly of Europe’s trade with the East by land. But Portugal was soon overextended; it was therefore the Dutch, the English, and the French who in the long run reaped the harvest of Portuguese enterprise.
