Address BWM Convention, warns Poulsson

first_imgICS vice chairman, Esben Poulsson, used the Ballast Water Management Summit in Singapore to encourage IMO Member States to make use of the solutions proposed in an industry submission to the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC), which next meets from 13-17 October.He highlighted issues surrounding the lack of robustness of the current IMO type-approval process for expensive new treatment equipment; the criteria to be used for sampling ballast water during port state control inspections; and the need for fair regulation of type-approved treatment equipment already fitted aboard vessels.He observes that governments have appeared reluctant to act collectively in a decisive manner on the issues, which is causing a great deal of uncertainty for the shipping industry.”When the BWM Convention eventually enters into force, the shipping industry will be required to invest billions of dollars to ensure compliance” said Poulsson. “However, because of the unanswered questions about the Convention’s detailed implementation, much of the industry – and society at large – continues to lack confidence that the new treatment equipment will actually work, or that it will be found to comply with the standards that governments have set for killing unwanted marine micro-organisms.”A key concern is that port state sanctions could unfairly impact shipowners that have fitted type-approved equipment in advance of the BWM Convention coming into effect, only to be told it falls short of the required standard.However, he feels that legal changes needed to make the BWM Convention fit for purpose are relatively straightforward and could be agreed in principle by government relatively quickly. In conjunction with a coalition of other industry associations, ICS has made a detailed submission to the next MEPC meeting in October, reiterating the industry’s concerns and the proposed way forward.”There is now a huge amount of lobbying taking place between industry associations and governments, but it remains to be seen if the industry will be successful in making governments see common sense,” Poulsson explained.www.ics-shipping.orgwww.imo.orglast_img read more

Industry’s First 20 nm Space-Grade FPGA for Satellite and Space Applications

first_imgXilinx has announced the industry’s first 20-nanometer (nm) space-grade FPGA, delivering full radiation tolerance and ultra-high throughput and bandwidth performance for satellite and space applications. The new 20 nm Radiation Tolerant (RT) Kintex UltraScale XQRKU060 FPGA provides true unlimited on-orbit reconfiguration, over a 10x increase in digital signal processing (DSP) performance – ideal for payload applications – and full radiation tolerance across all orbits.The XQRKU060 also brings high-performance machine learning (ML) to space for the first time. A diverse portfolio of ML development tools supporting industry-standard frameworks, including TensorFlow and PyTorch, enable neural network inference acceleration for real-time on-board processing in space with a complete “process and analyze” solution. The XQRKU060’s dense, power-efficient compute with scalable precision and large on-chip memory, provides 5.7 tera operations per second (TOPs) of peak INT8 performance optimized for deep learning, a nearly 25X increase compared to the prior generation.Building on Xilinx’s space heritage and highly successful 65 nm space-grade devices, the launch of the first 20 nm part for space applications advances the space industry by three process node generations. It delivers a significant reduction in size, weight, and power, and is engineered with robust radiation-tolerant features. The XQRKU060 provides customers with a space-resilient device equipped to handle both short and long duration missions in harsh space environments.Minal Sawant, space systems architect, Aerospace, and Defense Vertical Marketing, at Xilinx, commented that with their extensive history in developing leading-edge, radiation-tolerant technology and deploying this in reliable space-grade solutions, Xilinx continues its lead with the launch of the world’s most advanced process node for space. The 20 nm RT Kintex UltraScale FPGA is breaking industry standards and setting a new benchmark for meeting the high compute requirements of high bandwidth payloads, space exploration, and research missions.Reconfigurable ProcessingThe XQRKU060 is the industry’s only true unlimited on-orbit reconfigurable solution. The on-orbit reconfiguration capabilities, together with real-time on-board processing and ML acceleration, allows satellites to update in real-time, deliver video-on-demand, and perform compute “on-the-fly” to process complex algorithms. The ML capabilities are suitable to a variety of problems spanning scientific analysis, object detection, and image classification – such as cloud detection – enabling improved processing efficiency and reduced decision latency both in space and on the ground. As protocols and applications progressively change, the adaptive compute architecture of the XQRKU060 allows unlimited on-orbit reconfiguration to enable customers to perform last-minute product updates before launch, as well as after it has been deployed in orbit.Performance and Resiliency for SpaceThe XQRKU060 offers rich DSP capabilities optimized for dense power-efficient compute. It is equipped with 2,760 UltraScale DSP slices and provides up to 1.6 TeraMACs of signal processing compute, more than a 10X increase compared to the prior generation, as well as dramatic efficiency gains for floating-point computations. The increased compute capability in space is paired with massive I/O bandwidth from 32 high-speed transceivers (SerDes) that can run up to 12.5 Gbps to deliver 400 Gbps aggregate bandwidth.Paul Rutt, CTO at SEAKR, commented that SEAKR Engineering has collaborated with Xilinx for 15 years to consistently achieve challenging mission objectives for advanced space communications applications. They have baselined Xilinx’s 20 nm Kintex UltraScale FPGAs with 12.5 Gbps SerDes links enabling high-throughput, flexible and reconfigurable modulation, demodulation, channelization and routing capability in our newest advanced RF Reconfigurable processor, Wolverine. The Processor leverages the 10x increase in DSP compute capability for direct RF Sampling compared to prior generation systems.The XQRKU060 also features robust 40 x 40 mm ceramic packaging capable of withstanding vibrations and handling during launch as well as radiation effects in harsh orbit environments. The architecture features an innovative design for single event effects (SEE) mitigation thereby meeting the industry requirements for all orbits, including low earth orbit (LEO), medium earth orbit (MEO), geosynchronous orbit (GEO), and deep space missions.Development ToolsThe XQRKU060 brings a new, simplified development environment with the Xilinx Vivado Design Suite. The redesigned routing architecture provides extensive routing capacity to resolve common industry bottleneck challenges. Programming with the Vivado Design Suite helps to eliminate routing congestion, allowing more than 90 percent of the device to be used without any performance degradation. With Vivado, system designers and radiation teams can maximize productivity and reduce development time, helping to enable aggressive launch schedules.Additionally, the Vitis unified software platform provides support for embedded software development on the Triple Modular Redundant (TMR)-capable MicroBlaze soft processor. Future extensions will add support for Vitis AI, the Xilinx unified software platform for AI inference on Xilinx devices and production cards.A robust partner ecosystem of compatible solutions for the XQRKU060 is available today. Ecosystem partner solutions offer an array of assets for customers to accelerate their space-application designs, ranging from prototyping boards, space-qualified power, memory and configuration solutions, and single event upsets (SEU) mitigation tools and IP.AvailabilityFlight units of the 20 nm RT Kintex UltraScale space-grade XQRKU060-1CNA1509 FPGA will be available in Xilinx Class B and Class Y test flows per the MIL-PRF-38535, beginning in September of this year.

Yamauchi wins as Fukushi stumbles in marathon debut

first_imgOSAKA – Britain’s Mara Yamauchi made a solid run and took advantage of the inexperience of full-marathon debutante Kayoko Fukushi to win the Osaka International Women’s Marathon on Sunday.Yamauchi overtook top Japanese track runner Fukushi, who had led Sunday’s race from the start, shortly before the 35-kilometer mark and held on for her first career marathon victory with a personal-best time of 2 hours, 25 minutes, 10 seconds. IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 Kayoko Fukushi gets off to an early lead in the Osaka International Marathon on Sunday at Nagai Track and Field Stadium in Osaka. | KYODO PHOTO GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMEScenter_img RELATED PHOTOS Japan’s Tomo Morimoto finished runner-up 24 seconds behind the winner while Kenyan Julia Mumbi came third in 2:26:00. Japanese runners Miki Ohira and Madoka Ogi followed in fourth and fifth, respectively.“I tried harder to run strongly this time after a poor attempt to go ahead slowed me down badly at last year’s world championships,” Yamauchi said in fluent Japanese.“It was like a nightmare when a large pack of runners followed when I ran out of Osaka Castle during the race, but I did my best until the end with a ‘never give up’ attitude,” she added.The winning time was three seconds faster than the previous career best for Yamauchi, who has a Japanese husband and is on temporary leave from her job at the British Foreign Ministry to focus on her preparations for the Beijing Olympics.The main focus of attention in Sunday’s race was how Fukushi would perform in her full marathon debut after establishing herself as Japan’s leading long-distance track and half-marathon runner.Fukushi, owner of the half-marathon and 5,000-meter national records, moved ahead of the pack soon after the field left Nagai Stadium and widened the gap to more than 600 meters after 25 km.But her inexperience and the lack of proper preparations for the 42.195-km race took a toll on her as the 25-year-old slowed down significantly and became visibly tired around the 30-km point.In the late stages, Fukushi barely jogged along and fell to the ground on the road as well as the stadium track before managing to complete the race in 19th place.“I suddenly felt discomfort in my eyes and legs after 30 km and I went blank approaching the stadium,” Fukushi said. “I can’t remember what happened to me after that. I need to accept this result and want to make a change for my next goal.” last_img read more

Joe Aribo’s Title Ambitions Dented As Rangers Lose Again

first_imgJoe Aribo’s hopes of winning the Scottish Premiership suffered a severe blow on Wednesday as his Rangers side were beaten 2-1 by Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.Aribo who has scored twice and weighed in with 8 assists in 23 league appearances was on for 84 minutes before being substituted as Rangers’ rough patch continued.The Glasgow side actually went in front through a superb Scott Arfield strike in the 32nd minute.But the home side rallied in the final 11 minutes to draw level through Stephen O’Donnell 77th minute goal and then secure all three points through Eammon Brophy’s winner two minutes from time.The loss meant the chasm between second-placed Rangers who have 60 points after 25 games and leaders Celtic widened to 10 points although the Gers have a game in hand.Steven Gerrard’s side have now dropped points in three out of their last five games. And with Celtic who beat Hearts 5-0 at home on Wednesday in such rampant form, it appears Rangers’ title drought is set to extend for a ninth year.RelatedBad News For Joe Aribo After SPFL Ends SeasonMay 18, 2020In “Featured”Joe Aribo Scores As Rangers Move Within Two Points Of CelticsDecember 21, 2019In “National Team”Europa League: Joe Aribo Scores Ridiculous Solo Goal In Rangers’ Astonishing Comeback Win Against BragaFebruary 20, 2020In “Europa League”last_img read more

School distance learning application is now live

first_imgJACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – Campbell County Director of Schools Jennifer Fields announced Friday that the Campbell County Schools distance learning application is now live.  The link can be accessed at  www.campbell.k12.tn.usHere is the story from Tuesday night’s Campbell County Board of Education meeting:The Campbell County Board of Education voted unanimously Tuesday night to approve a reopening plan for all county schools on the scheduled reopening date of August 5. The plan will cover all grades in K-12 and contains provisions for any students with “qualifying criteria” such as underlying physical conditions.  Watch the meeting HERE on demand.  See the full plan HERE.Among the highlights of the plan:* Schools will open in the traditional manner on August 5, but students and parents will need to be flexible as information related to COVID-19 changes daily.* All employees and students will have temperature checks upon entry and any student showing symptoms including a temperature of 100.4 or higher will be sent home or to a quarantine/isolation room.* Hand-washing breaks, teaching and following of hygiene practices and hand sanitizer in all classrooms & common areas. Face masks are encouraged but not required and students will use individual supplies such as crayons, pencils, etc. and bring water bottles to be filled at water-filling stations.* No field trips or assemblies for the 2020-21 school year, no use of school facilities by outside groups.* Students testing positive for COVID-19 or sent home due to symptoms or a fever or having been kept out of school for symptoms must have a medical note before being allowed to return to school.* Virtual instruction will be provided as an option during extended closures or for students with qualifying criteria such as being immune-compromised.* Special intervention classes will be taught for any students falling significantly behind.* Breakfast and lunch will be provided free of charge to all students and social distancing will be practiced in serving and dining areas. Parents and guardians will not be allowed to eat with students until further notice.* Visitors will be permitted by appointment only and must have health & temperature screening upon entry.* All buses will have hand sanitizer available and sanitized after morning and evening routes. Shared family seating will be implemented where possible.Faye Heatherly asked when ipads would be available for those students qualifying for virtual instruction. Director Jennifer Fields replied, “Within ten days of signing up.”The board also voted to approve the Edgenuity Program as the virtual learning program for grades K-12. The board was told that virtual learning is expected to be in high demand but students must present proof of qualifying medical conditions.Also approved unanimously was Telehealth/Blue Life as a virtual healthcare program available for all students. The program comes with no cost to Campbell County as it has already been available through TennCare but just now being put into effect.Finally, the board also voted for an emergency suspension of school board policies during the 2020-21 school year. Director Fields pointed out that numerous policies, such as those covering use of facilities by outside groups, would need to be suspended in order to accommodate COVID-19 changes.One new policy that will need to be changed involves student discrimination, harassment and intimidation, board attorney Dail Cantrell explained. A recent ruling by the Tennessee Supreme Court involving gay/transgender students is expected to result in schools around the state getting “inundated by lawsuits” until competing protected classes are sorted out in court.      (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 07/15/2020-6AM-UPDATED – 07/17/2020-3PM)Share this:FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

Share this post Link to post 22 doafhat OK, this is something I’ve been wondering for a while…what is the motivation for all of these universities to use a “template” jersey design?I can’t speak for all the other schools, but from what I’ve been told in Oklahoma State’s case, it was a matter of Nike effectively forcing OSU to make the switch.For the last couple of years, OSU fans had been pushing for changing the “calculator numbers” on the football uniforms to something more traditional. When OSU went to Nike asking to change the number style on the uniforms and essentially roll back the uniforms to the Thurman Thomas era, Nike decided to play hardball. OSU was told that if they wanted block numbers on their football uniforms, they would have to switch to Nike’s so-called “Elite” uniforms.Since OSU is under contract with Nike, and was facing a lot of pressure from the fanbase to change the number style, the school was really forced into joining what I call the Axis of Piping. However, OSU’s contract with Nike runs out in 2007, so you can probably expect the Cowboys to go back to traditional uniforms then – when OSU either forces Nike’s hand by threatening to jump to another manufacturer, or by actually making the jump. 10,243 posts Link to post Location:Wichita, KS Location:CLE · IND · PDX SportsLogos.Net cward andrewharrington floydnimrod Share this post Posted July 4, 2006 192 wlightcap I’ll wait till I see the final product to decide if I like em.

Make them, and we’ll pay you what it costs.”Instead, now we get Wake Forest looking like Mizzou, looking like any number of other schools. And I don’t understand WHY Wake Forest would want to look like Mizzou. Is Nike paying THEM to use the jersies? I guess that would be it, but… God, the tradeoff is just too much.”here, take our piece of c#@p jersies, and we’ll float you a few bucks, and make it back on sales to fans”??? Is that really how the discussion goes?If WFU is paying for these template jersies, they’re getting ripped off. Link to post Share this post Location:NC I think you are all anti-Nike crazies….Sure they have made some mistakes, but those elite jerseys are just better to play in, and isn’t the end result? And there are two types of piping.. the nice and clean VT piping and then the over the top around the back piping, so all piping is not the the same. And I don’t know how you can call VT’s old uniforms classic… the two opposite color number combo’s were just stupid and bad design. Not to mention the “VT” logo is awful. There is no motion to it and it is blocky and dated.The bigger issue with Wake Forest, is there helmet. The WF is just terrible, there is no thought put into it. They need to put the cool Demon Deacon on the helmet, that would be great. But it is probably some stupid bible belt thing about the character… ugh.

But it is probably some stupid bible belt thing about the character… ugh.No, it’s more that the Demon Deacon on a helmet would look outrageously silly…Having a great mascot logo doesn’t mean it would work on a helmet…it would look like a fantasy football helmet. Usually the best looking football helmets are relatively plain, simple logos. 0 From what I understand, the switch was voluntary by Wake. The original plan was to just switch the home for the new style to try it out (mainly for cleaning purposes and such) and keep their older white jerseys, but Groves Stadium switch to FieldTurf, so y just replaced both. I asked whether they had to change to the new jerseys, and the answer was no. I really don’t see a difference between teams choosing the piping now and when every other team started using the Bronco template. It’s just what Nike offers, and teams choose one of the choices. I’m not defending Nike; it’s just how they operate. 9 161 0 153 posts 0 Hooray baseball Ben5 By wlightcap, July 4, 2006 in Sports Logo News 0 Location:Florham Park, NJ Share on other sites Location:Belleville, ON, CA 358 0 1 0 Share on other sites TFoA floydnimrod Doggone it, these “elite” unis are getting on my nerves.

Buffalo Bisons (hockey) ’56-’70 .. Buffalo Sabres ’06-’07 alternate logo Week six featured more than it’s fair share of ruined match ups. In no particular order, Buffalo, Green Bay, Baltimore, and a few other teams destroyed what would have been great uniform match ups. (more on that later) Despite the effort by those teams to ruin the week, we still had some good match ups as well as a repeat performance of last year’s overall winner. The Color Rush game may have been the best “Close, but no cigar…” game yet. As always, the lists are just my opinion. Your mileage may vary. Comments are always welcome. Do your best to ignore the pink. Let’s get things started.

Broncos – Chargers: There was an awful lot to like in this game. Both teams should use the Color Rush uniforms in this game as the starting point for great new uniforms. We’ll start with the Broncos: The retro logo and striping pattern on the current helmet looked fantastic. It’s a huge upgrade over “robo-horse” and the dated tapered stripes. Denver’s Color Rush jersey is another huge upgrade over the weird stripes, FFFS, and panel filled nonsense the team currently wears. Long story short, this uniform is a white jersey, a blue alt,  and a white pair of pants away from being one of the best looks in football. Here’s hoping the powers that be liked the Broncos uniform as much as I did.  3. Philadelphia – Washington: Another game where I think the Eagles in all white would have been the better choice. The burgundy and gold emphasizes how poorly the green matches the colors here. (or something like that) Oh well, at least the burgundy pants are back on the shelf for a week.  Posted October 19, 2016 ARTnSocal 522 Link to post the admiral 3,534 posts Location:Southern California 13 hours ago, Rj0498 said: Members Best: dennisbergan Link to post I’m sure someone here will be able to answer but I’m pretty sure they have/had some. The Bills had the white socks in the 1st year of the back to tradition uniform change in Reeboks last season back in 2011 but they mysteriously disappeared around mid-season. These were most likely meant for the blue pants that didn’t premier that season. I thought the Cowboy and Packers game look nice. Nothing like seeing royal blue and navy blue in contrast of the second colors being silver green and athletic gold respectfully.

Colts – Texans: Last week, I talked about how certain match ups are better when one team goes with all white instead of white over color. This game is a perfect example of all white being the better choice. Granted, the Colts no longer have blue pants, but imagine if they did and they had worn them in this game. This game wouldn’t have looked as good. There are certain color match ups where one dark color needs all the room to “breathe.” Good looking game and a great helmet match up.  Blue pants weren’t broken out in the initial season of the uniform change but these would go great with the current blue pants, minus one stripe too many on the socks. jp1409 Share on other sites 522 57,915 posts Silver_Star JayMac 0 4 hours ago, jp1409 said: VDizzle12 SportsLogos.Net It really is frustrating.

A nice upgrade from the current “doesn’t know what it wants to be” helmet. I thought the yellow face mask worked really well. Loved the color scheme. The Fouts-era blue really worked. I think the current number font looked good with this set.  Unfortunately, the trip back to the Fouts era didn’t include the shoulder or pants stripes and that’s where this look feoll short. But like the Broncos, the Chargers certainly have a great starting point for a new look with this Color Rush set. Fix the shoulder and pants stripes, add both gold and white pants, and we’ve got ourselves another winner. The only thing keeping this game off the best list is the monochrome. There was just way too much blue and way too much orange. That said, I think this game was easily the best looking Color Rush game so far.  the admiral 7 minutes ago, ARTnSocal said: 522 Share on other sites I apologize for any decorum No wordmarks and no contrasting stitching would do wonders.
