Pac-10 notes: Someone call an exorcist

first_imgThere’s many plausible explanations for UCLA’s two-game losing streak and upset in the quarterfinals of the Pac-10 Tournament. But this was a strange one, indeed. After Ben Howland did his press conference at Staples Center, he talked to a group of reporters in the hallway of UCLA’s locker room. A local television reporter asked Howland how players were going to get rid of the demons and devils in their heads. Huh? Howland simply looked at the reporter. What was he supposed to say? So, the reporter repeated the statement. “They’ve got demons in their heads,” she said. “Anybody else got a question?” Howland asked. The reporter said Howland wasn’t answering her question, to which Howland said she hadn’t asked one. Then she said: “I’m asking you to respond to what people are saying (about the devils and demons).” Howland turned to another reporter, who asked a question about UCLA’s quest for a No. 1 seed and whether that was valid anymore. NEW JERSEYS: Arizona is 0 for 1 in its new sleeveless jerseys. The Wildcats debuted a new jersey, made by Nike, on Thursday. Ohio State, among other schools, is donning a similar jersey. “The thing with the current jerseys is that they’re heavy; they hold in a lot of the perspiration,” Olson told the Arizona Daily Star. “You constantly see guys pulling their sleeves up. We had asked them back when they started talking with us about the possibility of a sleeveless-type thing so we don’t have this affecting the shot.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

DD Motoring: The Next Generation – The Volvo S90

first_imgWe drove the S90 Inscription this week which is the top of the range Volvo car courtesy of local dealership in Donegal McGinley Motors. As one of the many admirers remarked this week “thats what a real car should look like” – it was the perfect description for this range topping type car.A 190bhp diesel automatic is driving at the top level. Sitting inside the car it’s not long before Volvo have made you feel very special. The car has dark soft Nappa leather everywhere with beautiful hand stitched finishing.Around the dash and the centre console of our car had sections of what looked like lightly waxed walnut wood. And the seats were just something else. Advertisement It’s not very many seats that I can say I am perfectly comfortable in but this comes close to perfect. The base of the seat had an extending front section which I thought was just class for anyone with long legs and then the two sides of the back of the seat can adjust to suit all sizes of backs.The key is not used to start the car but needs to be near hand. A switch in the middle console is turned to fire up the D4 engine. The starter switch and its position between the two fronts seats would remind me of another Swedish car the Saab now no longer in production.One thing that this Volvo made me feel was connected to the car, something other cars seem to fail to achieve. The stop start system for example gave me the most confidence of sitting stopped in traffic as soon as you touch the throttle paddle the car restarts and you’re on the move right away.When you get the S80 out on the open road, 8 seconds will take this car from a standing start to 100kmph. The 8 speed Geartronic as Volvo call it it a pleasure to drive, you have the option to change over to manually control the gear change which I tried for all of 10 seconds and I thought to myself what is the point? The automatic gearbox is far better than any human, it’s easy on the driver and its easy on the car. Advertisement Lurgy testI always head up Lurgybrack hill outside Letterkenny to see how a car is pulling in gears, something I do with a lot of the cars that I drive. This car flew up the hill and I ended up having to slow it up a couple of time to keep it within the speed limit before I got to the top of the hill.What I never done before was to put Volvo’s IntelliSafe Technology systems to the test which included avoidance technology, Lane Keeping aid and what I was interested in was Adaptive Cruise Control.For the first time in my life I came the whole way down Lurgybrack Hill outside Letterkenny with out touching the brakes.About a mile before the steep hill into Letterkenny I had the car on cruise control and as they car caught up with the lane of traffic ahead it adjusted it speed to keep me a safe distance behind the car in front of me. As we made our way down into Letterkenny, with my foot hovering over the brake paddle (for my own comfort) the car still maintained a safe distance behind the car in front, and came to a stop on its own at the foot of the hill as the traffic made its way on to the Dry Arch roundabout.A view of the Volvo from its surround camera as it makes its way through the Box Junction at the Courthouse in Letterkenny. Photo Brian McDaidThis week we were out in the new Volvo S90 courtesy of Mc Ginley Motors in Letterkenny. A while back Noel reminded me that I never did a write up on the new Volvo range. I thought I did test a Volvo recently turns out he was right. The last time I had a Volvo out for a test drive was in February, not February this year or last year but Februrary in 1990! It’s funny how it just seems like yesterday, but that was over a quarter of a century ago, 27 years to be exact, I even managed to find a photo of the Volvo I tested a 440 I think which was given to me courtesy of the late Liam Mc Glinchey who was the main Volvo dealer for Co. Donegal.“Sure take the wee car with you” That was a great saying of Big Liam’s at his garage in Convoy where he was selling more Volvos that anyone else in the country. My father gave me a look when I landed into the council estate where I lived in Glencar with a brand new Volvo car back in the 90s.“Where in under God are you going with that car? Folk will think we won the pools!” He still didn’t refuse a spin in the new car and we ended up down at An Grianan Fort where I took this picture of him standing beside the car. Little did I know that day that it would be the last photo of my father I would take as he would pass away in the following months on the 18th of April 1990.My late father Fred McDaid out with me on a test drive in 1990 in a brand new Volvo. Photo Brian McDaidThere is something very familiar about Volvos every time I sit in one. They were car makers that were always to the forefront in driver and passenger safety. You are reminded about this when you pull the seatbelt around you when you get into the car. It’s nearly 60 years since Volvo which started working on the safety of its passengers in 1959 and these new Volvos are no different.As I headed out for a run in this lovely S90 in a classy dark metallic blue, I ended up on the pier in Rathmullan where I think is just a beautiful setting to picture the car for our report.The S80 Volvo on the pier in Rathmullan this week which we drove courtesy of Mc Ginleys Motors main Volvo Dealers for Co Donegal . Photo Brian McDaidSpotting some fish boxes at the side of the frame of the picture I thought I would move the car up the pier a bit for a better picture.I hopped in and as I went to move forward the car decided it wasn’t going to budge. I went through the procedure again and the car still would move. As I looked at the dash I could see that image of the four seats with the driver seat in red. I didn’t realise that I hadn’t my seat belt on and one of the many safety devices in the car was activated.The driver of this Volvo has to have his/her seat belt on before this car will move an inch, which is only right.In summing up this fine car, Volvo always made strong cars with the safety of its driver and passengers paramount. This new generation of Volvo which we included a photo of with one of my next generation, my son Niall, has continued with that mission in life.The next generation NIall Mc Daid pictured along side the present generation of Volvo which we tested this week. Photo Brian McDaidThere’s a Volvo for everyone in the S90 range starting well under €50,000. The range includes very refined petrol and diesel and hybrids and with two wheel drive and four wheel drive.The cars are powerful but all use Volvos E-drive which minimises the emissions.The Volvo always had a personality of its own and this S90 has it in both in style and most important in safety.Happy Motoring FolksDD Motoring: The Next Generation – The Volvo S90 was last modified: April 12th, 2017 by Brian McDaidShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:dd motoringreviewvolvo s90last_img read more

And the Fastest Animal Is…

first_imgIf you think the answer is peregrine falcon or cheetah, think again. This one skitters about under your feet.In the animal world championships, a new winner has been named in the speed category. There are strong contenders in that arena: cheetahs in the mammal tribe, falcons in the bird taxon, and mantis shrimp in the marine team. Now, a contender beats them all: a little bitty insect with a fearsome name: the Dracula Ant.Dracula ant’s powerful pincers snap shut at record speed (Nature). Even if you don’t blink you will miss it in the video clip that starts the article. “Fangs are feeble next to the fastest appendages in the animal world,” this brief news piece says. “An insect dubbed the Dracula ant is a speed champion among animals: it snaps its front pincers shut in less than 1/5,000 of the time it takes to blink.” It took high speed cameras to show this ant winning against the trap-jaw ant and the mantis shrimp. How does it work?Fredrick Larabee at the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC, and colleagues investigated this mechanism using computer models and high-speed videos. The researchers found that the ant’s front appendages, unlike those of most other ants, can bow inwards when the pincer tips press against each other, generating a spring-like tension. When one pincer slips under the other, this tension releases, propelling the pincers shut at 90 metres per second — faster than a bullet train, and the fastest-known speed for an animal appendage.Phys.org says this is faster than the 200 mph speed of a peregrine falcon.“These ants are fascinating as their mandibles are very unusual,” said University of Illinois animal biology and entomology professor Andrew Suarez, who led the research with Fredrick J. Larabee, a postdoctoral researcher at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History; and Adrian A. Smith, of the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and North Carolina State University, Raleigh. “Even among ants that power-amplify their jaws, the Dracula ants are unique: Instead of using three different parts for the spring, latch and lever arm, all three are combined in the mandible.“The high-speed action appears to be within the reach of variation, since “it only took small changes in shape for the jaws to evolve a new function: acting as a spring.”This is not evolution or speciation, but slight modifications to existing genetic information and parts. Even creationists accept that kind of variability (beak size, coloration, etc.). Still, this is a pretty spectacular example for a small animal. Dr Randy Guliuzza presents a design-theoretic model that explains these kinds of adaptations. Animals come pre-programmed to handle environmental changes, he says.

JSE expands commodity futures

first_imgAccording to Gravelet-Blondin, this will bring much comfort to investors, who will be able to access the international market via these rand-denominated contracts. 24 August 2009 As a result, the JSE will list cash-settled futures contracts for platinum, gold and crude oil on the JSE’s Commodities Derivatives Market in September 2009. The JSE has extended its existing licensing agreement with US-based CME Group, the world’s largest and most diverse derivatives marketplace, to enable South Africans to trade rand-denominated platinum, gold and crude oil futures contracts. “South Africa is the world’s largest platinum producer and third-largest gold producer, and so it made sense that we needed to offer South African investors related futures products which they could use either to gain exposure or hedge their exposure to a listed equity stock involved in the two commodities.” “Expanding the existing relationship with CME Group to incorporate these additional products is an achievement for the South African derivatives market,” the JSE’s Rod Gravelet-Blondin said in a statement this week. “Following the success of the JSE’s corn futures contract based on our [Chicago Board of Trade] settlement prices, we are pleased at the opportunity to extend our relationship with the JSE in the form of these new commodity-linked products,” said CME Group’s Rick Redding. Gravelet-Blondin explained that the opportunity to work with CME Group had increased the products the JSE could offer market participants and complemented the exchange’s growth strategy. The JSE was particularly excited about the opportunities a crude oil contract gave to investors seeking exposure to the international oil market or to organisations wanting to hedge their energy usage against the benchmark. “CME Group continues to explore new and innovative ways of facilitating effective risk management for suppliers and investors globally,” Redding said. “By referencing our global benchmark prices, the JSE is enabling its users to access new tools to further their hedging needs.” New investment opportunities The gold and platinum settlement prices from NYMEX and COMEX, two highly liquid exchanges forming part of CME Group, will ensure that locally listed contracts reference an international benchmark for final settlement.

2019 Precision University: Ag tech for in-season management

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Trey Colley, John Fulton, Jenna Lee, and Elizabeth HawkinsDigital agriculture technologies, connected devices, and sensor networks have enabled data-based decision making to be implemented at the farm level. The farm of the future will have increasing access to data and real-time analyses, allowing new insights related to in-season crop protection and nutrition management. Farmers of today already have many of these data sources at their fingertips through the use of connected smart phones.Implementation of these digital tools and services during the growing season can potentially reduce the time needed to assess crop health, scout for disease, and evaluate cropping system performance. A recent infusion of in-field sensor systems are beginning to change the game for such in-season decisions through irrigation management, real-time soil nutrient assessment, and site-specific application of cropping inputs. Additionally, advanced scouting tools such as apps with geo-location features, and aerial imagery are being adopted to assist in crop nutrition and crop protection applications.Spray technologies for in-season crop protection have also undergone recent developments even at the nozzle level. Pulse-width modulated (PWM) control for individual nozzles allow for reduction of spray overlap, skips, and drift during application at high speeds. Additionally, machine vision systems have proven see-and-spray technologies can reduce herbicide application by almost 90% in initial testing. These vision-based spray technologies use machine learning algorithms to detect both the type of weed and density of weed pressure to apply only a prescribed amount of herbicide to the identified area.How can you use these data sources paired with sound agronomic knowledge to make informed management decisions? Find out at the 2019 Precision University Event on Wednesday Jan. 9, 2019 at Beck’s Hybrids in London. This year’s focus will be related to all practices and technologies used for crop management after planting. Topics of using imagery for scouting, as-applied spray documentation, and sense-and-spray technologies will be highlighted in speaking sessions of the day. Additionally, breakout sessions of “Decision making with aerial imagery,” and “Latest in nozzle technology” headline the afternoon session. For more information and to register at $50 per person, visit go.osu.edu/PrecisionU by Jan. 2, 2019. CCA/CEU credits are available.last_img read more

We hope to show you the “geo-who” behind the “geo-what”. 🙂What is your name? Erin Yeah, but what’s your Username? OceansazulErin geocaching in the spring time!How did you come up with your username? I’ve always had an affinity with the ocean and my zodiac sign, pisces. Besides “Erin” and “Ocean” were already taken. “Azul” means blue in Spanish (which I speak), so Oceansazul just fit. What is your job title? Guest Experience CoordinatorWhat does your job title actually mean? In other words, how do you explain what you do to someone that has no idea what you do? Geocaching is headquartered in Seattle, where we are lucky enough to meet visitors from all over the world. During HQ visits, people talk all things geocaching, discover rare and cool trackables, find the HQ geocache, take some photos, ask questions, learn more, and even get some cool geocaching merchandise. It’s fun for me too because I love to laugh and I like to make other people laugh – but many people tell me I have a dry sense of humor. If you come tell me a funny story I will give you candy! Erin is Geocaching HQ’s Guest Experience Coordinator. Need we say more?Tell us about your geocaching style (exotic locations / quality over quantity)?  I don’t have a ton of finds, but I have found geocaches in a lot of states and a few countries. I love the creativity and what people come up with. I like to cache whenever I travel, I like taking newbies on their first geocache adventure, and I also love to Night Cache. There’s a Night Cache in my hometown of Puyallup that’s really cool because it’s a Multi-Cache, and I took my dad caching there. He had a blast. I just like the whole experience.Erin and friends in Kyoto, JapanWhat’s something that surprises you about geocaching – whether it’s the game itself, working at headquarters, or anything else?  The endless creativity of brilliant people. Geocachers come up with the most amazing hides. One that comes to mind is the second cache I ever found. It was a huge fallen log on the side of the trail, about three feet in diameter. But something in the middle of it looked “off”. I pulled a piece of log on the side, and it pulled out of the log. The geocache was a disguised piece of PVC pipe with part of the log on the top as the cap. I thought, “This game is incredible!” and I was hooked. That was five years ago.Erin and other Geocaching HQ employees hit the slopes for our annual snow day!What’s the best piece of geocaching advice or information you ever learned? Hmm… Take a step back and look again. And then, look again.last_img read more
