MOSCOW, May 3 — A special pipe-laying vessel that could be used by Russia to complete construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to Germany has arrived in the Baltic Sea, a Reuters witness said today.

The arrival of the Academic Cherskiy suggests that the pipeline project remains a priority for Moscow despite US sanctions on Russia.

The Nord Stream 2 pipeline was designed by Moscow to increase gas supplies via the Baltic Sea to Germany, Russia’s biggest energy customer. Russia’s energy ministry said in December that the pipeline was expected to be launched before the end of 2020.

Footage taken by Reuters from the coast showed the Academic Cherskiy idle

Substantially more money may soon flow into Harrisburg’s small business grant program

A screen shot of Harrisburg City Council’s virtual work session on Tuesday

Harrisburg is looking to significantly boost a fund that is offering grants of up to $10,000 to small businesses.

At Tuesday night’s City Council work session, city officials said that another $1.25 million soon may be injected into the Neighborhood Business Stabilization Program.

“We would look forward to expanding our partnership with Impact Harrisburg and have a round two of funding,” said Marc Woolley, the city’s business administrator.

Over the past two weeks, Impact Harrisburg, a nonprofit formed as part of the city’s 2013 financial recovery plan, has been accepting applications for the program, which offers grants of up to $10,000 to help city-licensed small businesses survive the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

While the partnership can be structured in many different ways, it’s typical that a partner is given an ownership percentage of the project’s return on investment. Of course, there are advantages and disadvantages of working with a partner that you’ll want to consider carefully before jumping in.

Portfolio loans

Conventional loans have strict underwriting guidelines and it can be difficult for real estate investors and the self-employed to qualify as borrowers.
