An electrical cable is made of two or more wires running side by side and bonded, twisted, or braided together to form a single assembly, the ends of which can be connected to two devices, enabling the transfer of electrical signals from one device to the other. Cables are used for a wide range of purposes, and each must be tailored for that purpose. Cables are used extensively in electronic devices for power and signal circuits. Long-distance communication takes place over undersea cables. Power cables are used for bulk transmission of alternating and direct current power, especially using high-voltage cable. Electrical cables are extensively used in building wiring for lighting, power and control circuits permanently installed in buildings. Since all the circuit conductors required can be installed in a cable at one time, installation labor is saved compared to certain other wiring methods.
The term originally referred to a nautical line of specific length where multiple ropes, each laid clockwise, are then laid together anti-clockwise and shackled to produce a strong thick line, resistant to water absorption, that was used to anchor large ships. In mechanics, cables, otherwise known as wire ropes, are used for lifting, hauling, and towing or conveying force through tension. In electrical engineering cables are used to carry electric currents. An optical cable contains one or more optical fibers in a protective jacket that supports the fibers.
Cable were a British indie rock band originally from Derby, UK who released 3 albums in the late '90s: Down-Lift the Up-Trodden ('96), When Animals Attack ('97), and Sub-Lingual ('99), on Infectious Records. The band split up in 1999.
Formed in 1992 by Matt Bagguley and Darius Hinks, Cable were initially inspired by the art-rock leanings of indie-labels such as Touch and Go, Dischord, Blast First, Southern Records and Shimmy Disc, and also UK artists such as Spacemen 3 & My Bloody Valentine. The first settled line-up was Matt Bagguley (vocals/guitar), Darius Hinks (guitar), Pete Darrington (bass), Neil Cooper (drums) and throughout 1993 the band played regularly with underground acts from the U.S (such as Medicine, Polvo, Truman's Water, Rocket From The Crypt..) In early '94 their debut single "Sale of the Century" was released on 7", by Derby-based indie-label Krunch! Records. Radio 1 DJ John Peel played it immediately on his show saying it was the best thing he'd heard that week and phoned the band during the show to invite them to record a session. John Peel remained a loyal fan from that moment on, and altogether the band recorded 4 Peel Sessions.
The character's first appearance was in The New Mutants #86 (Feb. 1990). He does not appear anywhere in the issue's story, but the "next issue" teaser includes a small drawing of the character. This was followed by a full appearance in The New Mutants #87 (March 1990). Though the artist Rob Liefeld is responsible for his visual design, name, and much of his personality, it is claimed that Cable also got some inspiration from editor Bob Harras. Liefeld explains the creation of the character:
Offshore (1979) is a novel by Penelope Fitzgerald. It won the Booker Prize for that year. It recalls her time spent on boats on the Thames in Battersea. The novel explores the liminality of people who do not belong to the land or the sea, but are somewhere in between. The epigraph, "che mena il vento, e che batte la pioggia, e che s'incontran con si aspre lingue" ("whom the wind drives, or whom the rain beats, or those who clash with such bitter tongues") comes from Canto XI of Dante's Inferno.
"Offshore", when used relative to hydrocarbons, refers to an oil, natural gas or condensate field that is under the sea, or to activities or operations carried out in relation to such a field. There are various types of platform used in the development of offshore oil and gas fields, and subsea facilities.
This morning, Southern CrossCable executive Craige Sloots told the Herald that "Fintel and TCL [Tonga Cable Ltd] undertook testing yesterday afternoon which seems to confirm a likely cable break around 37km offshore from Tonga" ... caused by power outages that disabled the cable.
With regards to the full contract award and NTP, Prysmian said it is also expecting to enter into a parallel installation agreement with Jan De Nul for the subsea cable laying works, where the offshore installation activities will be performed by the company’s cable-laying vessel Leonardo da Vinci, and cable-laying barge Ulisse.

"The last cable cut [an alleged act of sabotage in 2019] took nearly two weeks to repair," Fonua said.
... SA (EBR.CENER), said it has completed the production and load-out of cables under a contract for the partial supply of inter-array cables for the 2.6-GW CoastalVirginiaOffshoreWind (CVOW) project in the US.
... construction contract to date to Melville-based HauglandEnergyGroup for the project's land-based cable and interconnection infrastructure in East Hampton ... Haugland has previously done cable work for Orsted's Block IslandWind farm, the first offshore wind project in the nation.
It is a Jack-up barge that will be used as an important step toward eventually building what would be New York state’s largest offshore wind farm, if all government approvals are ultimately granted to Equinor, a company based in Norway, with U.S ... A precise location for the cable has not yet been determined.
... (NFE) Topsides and the North FieldEast (NFE) Offshore Pipelines and Subsea Cables projects, with an option included to also award the North Field South (NFS) Offshore Topsides—representing one of the largest single contracts McDermott has been awarded in its company history.
The new plan calls for direct investment in offshore wind manufacturing and supply chain infrastructure ... A cable study will identify strategic offshore wind cable corridors and access key points of interconnection to the power grid for offshore power ... "I am proud to make New York a leader in offshore wind and renewable energy.
Her plans calls for the state to initiate an offshore wind cable corridor study to consolidate power lines needed to connect upward of 6,000 megawatts of offshore wind to New York City, minimizing impacts on the sea bed and land-based connection points — a point of contention in regions such as eastern Long Island.
