Normally, these fields are reduced by the onboard degaussing system, however when the magnitude of the vessels field is too large for the onboard system to compensate, the vessel must undergo magnetic treatment.Significant magnetic effects may arise in any object containing ferro-magnetic material. The strength of the magnetic field is determined by the shape and composition of the object, and the ambient magnetic field. For a ship or submarine, the field is complex and changes with heading and location. The measured field is three dimensional in nature and is expressed in terms of three mutually independent orthogonal components; being the longitudinal, athwartships and vertical fields. The total field is the vector sum of these components. Magnetic signature minimisation can be achieved by Magnetic Treatment (or Deperming) and Degaussing.Magnetic treatment involves wrapping large cables around the hull, forming a solenoid, to induce a controlled longitudinal field into the vessel. The vessel is then berthed in the Magnetic Treatment facility which also has a built in coil to generate a vertical magnetic field. By controlling the current (and hence the magnetic field) in both of these coils, significant reduction in the permanent magnetisation can be achieved.The Magnetic Treatment Facility located at HMAS Stirling, is the only facility in Australia capable of performing the deperming function.HMAS Newcastle is the first surface fleet unit to enter the Magnetic Treatment Facility since the facility underwent a period of maintenance and upgrade in February/March 2013.[mappress]Press Release, May 15, 2013; Image: Australian Navy Share this article May 15, 2013 View post tag: Naval View post tag: Defence View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Magnetic View post tag: Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today HMAS Newcastle Enters the Magnetic Treatment Facility Industry news View post tag: Newcastle View post tag: Treatment

Located at the heart of the Lake District, family craft baker and confectioner Bryson’s prides itself on preserving tea-time traditions, serving regular customers and tourists to the popular region.Founded in 1947 by John Bryson as a small bakery in Keswick, the company is now run by family descendants John and Lesley Buckley. The original bakery has expanded to include the traditional tearoom, seating around 70, plus a coffee bar for 20, and the firm has established a second site at Cockermouth as well as a thriving wholesale business.Although Bryson’s, which employs more than 80 staff, has developed a number of signature dishes over the years and makes snacks, rolls and sandwiches as well as freshly baked pies and pasties, John Buckley believes that it is the company’s Lakeland Plum Bread that has put it firmly on the map. “This lightly spiced loaf is extremely popular,” he says.To achieve quality and consistency, Bryson’s uses Carpigiani equipment, including a Pastochef at the heart of the operation. Supplied in the UK by ServEquip, the Pastochef comes in 15- to 30- and 50-litre sizes and is said to be able to make a long list of sweet and savoury items suitable for professional bakers.With eight different blend modes, the semi-automated machines are used at Bryson’s to produce confectioners custard, used in the bakery’s vanilla slices, doughnuts and various tarts. Now, the company is considering extending the range of products it makes using the machine – including lemon curd, which it has bought in until now. “Our Pastochef has a robust design,” says Buckley. “ServEquip has been helpful, both in initial training and in showing us some of the machine’s wider potential.”“Our association with Bryson’s shows how, by working together, we can help with efficient menu development and leverage maximum benefit from their equipment,” says aspokesperson for ServEquip. “We set out to provide a total solution.”
Saint Mary’s Justice Education Department hosted Maureen Parsons and Tiffany Amburg from Hannah & Friends, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and compassion for the special needs community, to speak about the organization Friday.Parsons, director of operations at Hannah & Friends, spoke about the financial difficulties that families with children who have special needs are confronting.“As soon as their child is born and they are diagnosed, their first thought is, tomorrow. How do we get through tomorrow, get through elementary school? Yet, they need to be planning for the next 15 years,” Parsons said.According to Parsons, there are funding waivers available for families of children with disabilities, but families can sit on waiting lists for more than 10 years.“Indiana has changed it so that you receive less with the waiver so more people are allowed to receive those services,” Parsons said.Parsons said resources are improving, but still lacking.“[At Hannah & Friends] we try to focus on the ability of our participants, see where they can shine and then show that to the community,” Parsons said. “Each of them have something to share, as we all do.”Tiffany Amburg, a spokesperson and participant at Hannah & Friends, spoke about her experiences there and her lifelong challenge with Down syndrome.Amburg said she likes to write songs and speeches when she isn’t working as the receptionist at Hannah & Friends.She wrote a song with Jeda Cruz, the program director at Hannah & Friends, called “She’s Made of Steel.”This song is about a girl who has her whole life ahead of her, Amburg said.“It’s about overcoming obstacles and trusting other people,” she said. “And with my ability to tell my story [about] what it’s like to be a person with all abilities that is what the song is about, overcoming all obstacles and inspiring other people to do the same thing.”Parsons said when Cruz performs the song in the community, there is always an audience member who says they were touched and truly connect to the song’s message.Amburg said she enjoys her position as a Hannah & Friends spokesperson for many reasons.“I get to go out and talk to the media about our mission at Hannah & Friends so that we can continue our future [as an organization],” she said.“It’s also important that we can come together to promote our mission.”Tags: disability, Hannah & Friends, Justice Fridays, special needs
Tickets are now on sale to see the Broadway revival of Christopher Hampton’s Les Liaisons Dangereuses. Janet McTeer is set to take on the role of La Marquise de Merteuil, reprising her performance from the production’s debut last year at London’s Donmar Warehouse. Fellow Tony winner Liev Schreiber joins her as Le Vicomte de Valmont (played across the pond by Dominic West).Performances will begin on October 8 at the Booth Theatre, where it is scheduled to open officially on October 30. Josie Rourke, artistic director of the Donmar Warehouse, helms the production, which will play a limited engagement through January 22, 2017.Based on the 1782 novel by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos, the dark comedy follows former lovers, La Marquise de Merteuil and Le Vicomte de Valmont as they compete in games of seduction and revenge. These merciless aristocrats toy with the hearts and reputations of innocents. Merteuil incites Valmont to corrupt the convent-educated Cecile de Volanges before her wedding night but Valmont has other designs. His target is the peerlessly virtuous and happily married Madame de Tourvel.Lindsay Duncan and Alan Rickman earned Tony nominations for the play’s 1987 Broadway premiere. Glenn Close and John Malkovich headlined the 1988 movie version, renamed Dangerous Liaisons. The show was last revived on the Great White Way in 2008, starring Laura Linney and Ben Daniels.Additional casting for this latest incarnation will be announced at a later date. Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery was set to play Madame de Tourvel in London, but had to withdraw following the death of her fiancé. Elaine Cassidy stepped in for her.

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Liam Denning for Bloomberg Gadfly:In Trump’s telling, the coal industry has been crushed by regulations aimed at curtailing mining and cutting emissions from burning it. And it’s true that, for example, investing in the equipment needed to satisfy tighter guidelines such as the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards does make coal less economical to its biggest customers, electricity generators, and has led to plants being closed. But the bigger threat is more prosaic: abundant natural gas from the shale boom.The trend of gas taking market share from coal began in earnest in 2009—which just happens to be when the cost of gas to produce electricity collapsed.While rolling back some environmental standards on coal-fired plants would likely help keep some more of them open, encouraging more fracking simultaneously would mean more cheap gas to keep taking away coal’s market share. That’s just competition. Now, it is possible that a Trump administration might also do its bit to encourage the construction of more plants to export liquefied natural gas, which would tend to push prices up, helping the miners. But as recent turmoil at Cheniere Energy shows, the global LNG market is glutted already. Moreover, by encouraging more fracking of shale, Trump’s policy would also tend to raise oil production, having the side effect of depressing global oil prices, which are in turn linked to LNG prices.Full item: Trump Can’t Make Coal and Fracking Great Again On the Blogs: Trump’s Simplistic Portrayal of the Coal Industry
FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:From orderly rows of solar panels in a field in the West Bank to the chaotic rooftops of Gaza, Palestinians are hoping that harnessing the energy of the sun can reduce their dependence on Israel for electricity.The West Bank only gets around three-quarters of the power its 3 million people need, imported mostly from Israel and, to a far lesser extent, Jordan.In the Gaza Strip, power generation is so paltry that, even with imports from Israel and Egypt, it gets just one-third of what it needs – so the 2 million Gazans struggle on with an average of just four hours of electricity a day.Individuals have taken it on themselves to install solar panels, trailing cables down the side of buildings to keep fans whirring or to power televisions and other appliances.The number of panels in the enclave has increased four-fold in four years and they are now dotted on most rooftops and balcony on homes, schools, hospitals, shops, banks and mosques in a place where the sun shines 320 days a year.In Gaza’s Nusseirat refugee camp, Sabreen Abu Shawiesh said installing solar panels on the metal roof of her one-floor house had changed her family’s life: “We almost had no electricity, nowadays fans are working all day.”The sun may be free, but the technology is not, and Palestinians say their ability to import solar panels has been hampered by Israeli border controls.Entrepreneurs in Gaza say they have sometimes been banned from importing various kinds of batteries – including those used for solar power – by Israel, on the grounds that they might be used for military purposes.In the West Bank, ruled by President Mahmoud Abbas’s Western-backed Palestinian Authority, the public and private sectors have launched projects to diversify power sources to get cheaper electricity and more self-sufficiency.The Authority’s Palestinian Investment Fund (PIF) plans to build three solar farms and put solar energy into 500 schools. The three new plants will generate 22 megawatts per day. The West Bank needs 1,400 megawatts but currently only 1,100 megawatts are available.Larger solar projects would require more land but it is scarce because, under the Oslo peace accords of the mid-1990s, Israel retains control of much of the land of the West Bank.“We will be in a good position if we reach 5 or 10 per cent of the required electricity supply for Palestine in general from solar energy,” said Azem Bishara, chief executive officer of Massader, a subsidiary of the PIF.Bishara said Massader intended to invest $200 million in renewable energy over the next six years to generate an additional 200 megawatts.The Gaza Strip only has one power plant, which generated 140 megawatts in 1999 when it was built but now only produces 23 megawatts. The enclave imports 30 megawatts from Egypt and 120 from Israel. This is less than a third of the Strip’s daily needs – estimated at up to 600 megawatts a day.Last week the European Union completed Gaza’s biggest solar farm which will provide 0.5 megawatts per day to fuel the Southern Gaza Desalination Plant, also funded by the EU.More: Palestinians turn to the sun to reduce their power shortfall Palestine, perpetually short of electricity, turns to solar
“We needed to help the community,” said Warren. “We decided to go ahead and do weekly pet food distributions,” said IMOD founder Rolette Warren. “At one point there were places that were actually running out,” Warren said. IMOD founder Rolette Warren said the pandemic has made it difficult for people to get pet food. “It feels good to help people that really need it.” “One of them was crying because she has never needed the help from the community before.” BINGHAMTON (WBNG) – If you see a blue tent while driving down the road, it could be “In Memory of Diesel” who is doing their part to help the community they call home. “We’ve also teamed up with CHOW these last couple weeks to pass out the five-day boxes.” Warren said they are happy to be doing it. IMOD is using its resources to make a difference. Which is what made Warren and her crew decide to take action. “We nearly depleted our whole inventory because of the calls that we were getting and trying to keep up with the demand of the help.” “Like” Jacob Seus on Facebook and “Follow” him on Twitter. At their distribution sites once a week, IMOD is passing out pet food and receiving donations, and Warren said the response has been terrific.
Media Release Euthanasia-Free NZ 12 September 2015Euthanasia-Free NZ congratulates the UK House of Commons on rejecting the Marris Assisted Dying bill by an overwhelming 212 majority after an extensive yet respectful debate.Many MPs commended the medical profession on the excellent work they do, but remarked that doctors are unable to accurately predict how long a patient is expected to live. Such estimates are based on educated guesswork and probability, not certainty. It is therefore arbitrary to limit eligibility to people who have a certain number of months to live. One Member recalled a case in which a relative was expected to die by the weekend, but lived for another eight months.“The UK decision sends a clear message to New Zealand”, says Renee Joubert, Executive Officer of Euthanasia-Free NZ. “It is a waste of time to debate an assisted suicide bill at committee stage because no safeguards can ever be safe enough. As several MPs remarked, it is simply impossible to prevent vulnerable people being coerced or feeling internal pressure to request death.”“Such emotional pressure can be subtle and occur behind closed doors. There is no way any third party can be sure that a person has made a truly free and voluntary request for assisted suicide. Assisted suicide and euthanasia legislation lends itself to rubber stamping.”Euthanasia-Free NZ echoes the sentiment expressed by Dr Peter Saunders, campaign director of Care Not Killing: “We hope Parliament will now turn its attention to the real issues facing our country of ensuring that everybody can access the very best care, regardless of whether they are disabled or terminally ill and that we fund this adequately.”The current Health Select Committee inquiry is an important step in determining the real needs of suicidal New Zealanders and how they can be cared for more effectively. The Committee is investigating why people desire to end their lives and give feedback on the effectiveness of existing support services.

Loading… Read Also: Bonucci defends Ronaldo: Even the greatest miss penalties The second, in the 82nd minute, came after a flowing move in which substitute Alexis Sanchez found Eriksen with a lovely backheeled pass, laying on the Dane for a golden chance to take the tie to penalties. However there was another bum note for Ospina after his best game for Napoli, as his late booking for time wasting means he will miss the final. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 According to Italian media, some 8.3 million people tuned into RAI to watch Friday’s goalless draw at Juve’s Allianz Stadium, the largest TV audience for a football match this season. They were immediately thrown into the action thanks to Eriksen, whose near-post cross from a corner flashed past a host of players and squirmed under a surprised David Ospina in the Napoli goal. Inter then dominated for long stretches of the first half, and should have gone two ahead on the night seconds before Mertens struck when Antonio Candreva opted to shoot, forcing a good save from Ospina, with three teammates ready for a pass in the box. Ospina was then crucial to Napoli going ahead in the tie, as it was his quick pass which sent Insigne scurrying towards the Inter area. The Italy international drew defenders towards him before releasing a perfect pass for Mertens, who stroked home first time under Samir Handanovic. Ospina kept a powerful Inter side at bay with some super goalkeeping to make up for his early blunder, the Colombian making two excellent stops from Eriksen in five minutes towards the end.

Dries Mertens slots home his 122nd Napoli goal to become the club’s all-time top goalscorer Napoli will face Juventus in Wednesday’s final in Rome thanks to Belgium forward Mertens, who slotted home his 122nd goal for Napoli four minutes before half-time to make the score 1-1 on the night and give them overall victory after a 1-0 first-leg win at the San Siro in February. Christian Eriksen had levelled the tie for Inter straight from a corner in the second minute and the away side continued to dominate the first half, but Mertens ended a lightning counter-attack to put the hosts through at the Stadio San Paolo. “We wanted the final at all costs and we achieved that. Now we need to recuperate and be ready for the final in a few days,” said Lorenzo Insigne, who set up Merten’s winner. Mertens, 33, overtakes Marek Hamsik and moves seven clear of Diego Maradona, who scored 115 goals in all competitions and won two Serie A titles and the UEFA Cup over his seven tumultuous years in southern Italy. Although there were no fans in the stands at the San Paolo, public broadcaster RAI reported that a small number of Napoli supporters that had gathered outside the San Paolo set off fireworks throughout half-time in celebration of Merten’s goal and after the match. Mertens moved to Napoli from PSV Eindhoven in 2013 and has become so settled in Naples that fans have nicknamed him ‘Ciro’, a hugely common Neapolitan name. Sporting director Christian Giuntoli said pre-match that both club and player want to extend his contract, set to expire at the end of the month. Napoli will take on Juve at the Italian capital’s Stadio Olimpico after Maurizio Sarri’s side squeezed past AC Milan on away goals following a 0-0 draw in Turin on Friday, Italy’s first competitive football match since the country become the global coronavirus epicentre. – Ospina fends off Inter – As with Friday’s match, Napoli and Inter players gathered around the centre circle for a minute’s silence in tribute to the more than 34,000 people who have died in Italy as a result of COVID-19. There will likely be a big television audience for two of Italy’s best-supported clubs.
