Report Urban Meyers 6 million salary ranks No 3 for NCAA football

Coach Urban Meyer stands in front of the team before the Buckeyes take the field against Rutgers on Oct. 1. The Buckeyes won 58-0. Credit: Mason Swires | Assistant Photo EditorThe enterprise that is college football continues to grow with social media branding, television deals and other sources of revenue. All factors emphasize the importance of signing one of the best play callers in the country, but that comes at a price.On Wednesday, USA Today released a compiled database of the 2016 salaries of all NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision coaches. At the top were arguably the three best coaches in the NCAA: Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, Alabama coach Nick Saban and Ohio State coach Urban Meyer.Meyer is ranked third out of 128 coaches with a 2016 total salary of $6,094,800.Meyer trails only Harbaugh and Saban, respectively, for the largest income of Division I coaches. Harbaugh tops the charts at $9,004,000, more than $2 million higher than Saban’s $6,939,395. USA Today lists Harbaugh’s maximum bonus at $1,325,000, while Meyer’s maximum bonus is $775,000.Not all of Meyer’s payment is coming from OSU. The school pays Meyer a maximum of $6,003,000, with all bonuses factored in, and Meyer received $91,800 for “other pay.” OSU said the $91,800 was meant to cover travel costs associated with outside engagements, and any leftover money was directed to the Shelley and Urban Meyer Family Foundation.The most recent outside-income form available to USA Today was due to be filed by Sept. 10, 2015, and lists Meyer as having generated a total of $801,450 in “cash and/or goods and services for charities.” That number includes $696,450 he raised for his family’s charity.Meyer had $250,000 of his possible bonuses paid in the 2015-16 season. read more

Fibre optic sensing technology detecting conveyor belt faults

first_imgFibre optic sensing technology is showing industry-wide benefits with real-time monitoring of conveyor belts to reduce costly unplanned down times. Currently, routine inspections of conveyor belts are carried out by maintenance staff, driving along conveyor belts trying to listen for malfunctioning rollers or using handheld thermal/acoustic devices to identify problems, but this isn’t proving effective.When conveyors are unexpectedly shut down due to issues with rollers or sudden faults, miners need to locate the roller fault, isolate, dispatch, tag, repair and restart the conveyor – losing valuable production hours.A team of researchers at CRCMining and the University of Queensland’s Fibre Optic Sensing Application Laboratory (FOSAL) have been developing a Conveyor Condition Monitoring (CCM) system using fibre-optic sensing technology to improve the early detection of conveyor belt faults. This technology uses optical fibre installed on or near the conveyor structure to directly sense acoustic activity in real time, at metre intervals along the length of the conveyor.CRCMining project leader Mohammad Amanzadeh said Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) hardware is at the heart of CCM. “It is exciting technology which has been successfully deployed in various industries for remote production and condition monitoring of assets such as pipelines, wellbores, boarder securities, traffic flow and railway monitoring,” he said.This advanced sensing system is capable of constantly monitoring an entire conveyor system for idler roller failures and is being further developed by CRCMining. By pairing this technology with event detection software, changes in equipment acoustic signatures can be identified to alert operators of impending roller failures and breakdowns.CCM is unique, as the sensor is flexible and robust it transforms a single mode optical fibre into a chain of microphones, measuring sounds/vibrations at discrete points along the length of conveyor system. The fibre is easily installed on the conveyor structure, requires low maintenance, and if the fibre is damaged repair is as simple as re-joining the ends of the optical fibre.DAS hardware is available off the shelf, however has not been applied to mining conveyors. CRCMining is developing the technology further through various field trials facilitating software and algorithms to address the specific application challenges.“This technology will be a game changer in conveyor condition monitoring and is set to transform the mining landscape,” Amanzadeh said.“The researchers are trialling the use of fibre optic sensing technology to identify changes in temperature and noise along the conveyor belt to help detect potentially faulty components in real-time and post processing.“The first site trial was at Queensland Bulk Handling (QBH) in 2014, and recently our team completed a site trial at Anglo American’s Dawson mine in May 2015.“In conveyors that span kilometres with thousands of rollers, real-time monitoring has the potential to significantly reduce costs in mining operations. CCM technology enables staff to prioritise maintenance repairs and identify types of faults in real-time along the conveyor belt.“This will lead to an effective strategy in maintenance during planned down times and will reduce costly down-times, prevent catastrophic events, repairs and delays in production caused by roller and pulleys,” he said.It is anticipated CCM technology will reduce unplanned down times by 20 to 50% depending on the conveyor system. If a mine conveyor currently runs at a production loss of $150,000 per hour this could escalate to millions lost in production each year due to unplanned stoppages. There are also more savings expected with improving labour, belt damage, safety incidences, and adding robotic solutions for roller change.The current stage of research is to conduct a more detailed trial and data collection using the DAS technology in an underground mine. The current phase of project is supported by CRCMining, Australian Coal Association Research Program (ACARP), Anglo American, The University of Queensland, OptaSense – QinetiQ, Machinery Automation Robotics, and QBH.last_img read more

Shatter row Judges group outlines concerns for judiciary independence

first_imgA REPRESENTATIVE BODY for Ireland’s judges has backed Justice Peter Kelly in a row with Minister Alan Shatter over judiciary independence and perceived government interference.The Association of Judges of Ireland (AJI) issued a statement in response to yesterday’s Sunday Business Post report on Justice Kelly’s speech at a private dinner hosted by PWC for business leaders.During his address, which has been described as wide-ranging, he discussed judicial independence. The association said it fully supported the comments made.“The report, whilst broadly accurate, contains a number of inaccuracies,” said the AJI, which also noted that there were no journalists present at the event.“The judge pointed out that for almost 90 years of the State’s existence there had been no need for an association of judges given the mutual respect demonstrated by the executive and judicial branches of government, one for the other.  All structures both formal and informal which existed for communication between those two branches of government have ceased,” the statement continued.Earlier today, Shatter criticised Justice Kelly for his comments, stating it was “unfortunate” if pay reductions for judges – which were brought in by a referendum – were seen as an attack on an organ of the State.According to the Sunday Business Post, the judge said the judiciary was being demolished “brick by brick” by the government. He is reported to have cited the coalition’s handling of judges’ pay and pensions and the establishment of new courts as evidence.In its rebuke, the AJI said: Subsequently, legislation was passed in respect of pension provisions for new judges without notice or consultation.  These provisions extend by one third the length of time which superior court judges have to serve in order to obtain a pension which in any event is unlikely to amount to half final salary.  This has major consequences for judicial recruitment in the future.The group also highlighted the personal insolvency act, claiming it was implemented without any notice or debate. It said the recruited judges “from the ranks of county registrars” will “unlike all others” be subject to ministerial direction concerning sitting.Finally, the 10-point statement referenced upcoming referendums.“No wording concerning these has been forthcoming although they all have huge implications for the judiciary,” it said. “The AJI accepts the need for a court of appeal but is concerned as to the form of amendment to the Constitution which may be proposed.“The AJI has no information as to what the proposal is concerning specialist family courts.“The abolition of the Senate renders the removal of judges subject only to a simple majority resolution in the Dáil. At present a resolution of both Houses is required.“All of these matters have implications for judicial independence. An independent judiciary and the perception of an independent judiciary is a vital element in a properly functioning constitutional democracy,” concluded the body.The Justice Minister said today that he was “surprised” at Justice Kelly’s comments and warned that they could affect how Ireland is seen internationally.“The present government has not nor will it ever interfere in any way with the inviolable constitutional duty of the judiciary to independently hear and determine court proceedings,” he said in a statement.In additional comments on RTE Radio One’s Morning Ireland this morning, Alan Shatter said he was “sure it was not [his] intention” to suggest that the government interferes with the courts.He said that some people are “uncomfortable” with the government’s “reform agenda”, including plans to bring in a new civil court of appeal as the High Court is overburdened.Mr Justice Peter Kelly was appointed to the High Court in 1996. He has been in charge of the Commercial Court since it began in 2004 and has presided over a number of high profile cases involving property developers and the recession.Alan Shatter criticises High Court judge comments on payFLAC says ‘Jury Service’ report should include deaf and blind people At all stages judges accepted that they had to bear their fair share of salary cuts. However, as the constitutional guarantee concerning judicial remuneration was removed, they asked that an independent body be established to fix such remuneration so as to ensure judicial independence.  This request was dismissed out of hand.last_img read more

DIY NES controller doesnt look too tough to pull off

first_imgIt has been nearly 30 years since the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) was first released. There is probably no piece of hardware in the history of gaming that has been so universally loved. The grown-up hardware modders of this generation have fond memories of the NES, so it’s not surprising that this fabled console of yesteryear keeps coming up in various projects. This time we find an engineer that got bored and decided to make his own custom NES controller.So what does it take to make an NES controller from scratch? Well, surprisingly not that much. The modder simply threw together some extra components he had lying around from Adafruit Industries, a popular component supplier. That’s why the final product — a square-ish naked device with exposed components — eschews ergonomics.The controller is built on a single-sided 65 x 65mm PCB. On it is mounted a 5-way navigation switch to stand in for the d-pad, three tactile buttons for the A-B set up and the Start button, a few resistors, and some wiring to connect it all to a makeshift controller cable.Due to limited space, the start button is on the back of the board, and the select button is handled by the center position of the 5-way switch. All the other controls work as expected. The system seems unconcerned that the controller issuing commands bears little resemblance to the genuine article.As far as hardware modding projects go, this one is fairly straightforward. The circuit diagram is available if you want to take a swing at it, and if you’re not using leftover parts you should be able to get much prettier results.via Guillermo Amarallast_img read more

First openly gay bishop talks about religion and sexuality

first_imgBishop Gene Robinson (Courtesy of Todd Franson – Metro Weekly)The first openly gay Episcopal bishop is visiting Anchorage this weekend to kick off Pride Week. Retired Bishop Gene Robinson was consecrated in 2003 amid much controversy. Robinson says he decided now was the time to visit Anchorage because of local, religiously-fueled opposition to the city’s non-discrimination ordinance, which protects people based on their gender identity and sexual orientation.Download AudioDownload Audio.Gene Robinson: Unfortunately the conservative religious right pretty much owns the airwaves and TV stations and so on and therefore people get this impression that homosexuality and faith are sort of mutually exclusive. And so I’m kind of a symbol of how that’s not true. I’m a gay man – out, proud – and you can’t be much more bought into institutional religion than being a bishop, right? So just by showing up I make a statement about that.Anne Hillman: So what is your argument to counter the religious right?GR: I think it’s important to remember from the very beginning that the three Abrahamic faiths – Islam, Christianity, and Judaism – all three have texts within their sacred texts that at first reading and on their face value seem to condemn homosexuality. It turns out not to be the case when you read those texts in their context. I like to say, I take the Bible seriously enough not to take it literally.Let me just tell a quick story that indicates the task at hand. Suppose it’s the year 3000 and the game of baseball has been completely lost. No one plays it, no one knows the rules. It’s just been lost to the culture. And in that year 3000 you pick up a novel that was written in 2000 and one of the characters is described as being out in left field. So in the year 3000, not knowing baseball, you would think you knew what that meant because you know what left is and you know what field is. But unless you know the game of baseball, you don’t know it has become a metaphor for being out of touch, out of the loop, isolated and so on. So the texts we are dealing with as religious people are 2,000, 3,000 years old and we cannot assume that the words we read – and let’s remember, they’re translations. These texts are not written in English. These translated words may not mean today what they meant then. And so we have to actually look at context.The second thing is to understand that – and this is going to sound completely wrong – but homosexuality didn’t exist in the ancient world. Now, same-sex behavior exisited, but the notion of sexual orientation even as a category is only about 140 years old.Bishop Gene Robinson at the Captain Cook Hotel in Anchorage. (Hillman/Alaska Public)AH: Let’s talk about Orlando. What does it mean for the LGBTQ community?GR: I think for our community it means that we’re not as far along as we thought we were. That we are in more danger than we thought we were. We thought we had made more progress than that. That we had at least safe places to go and safe cities and safe states where our rights would be acknowledged and our safety would be assured. And this has just shown how that is simply not true.We see politicians who acknowledge the massacre and refuse to acknowledge that it was a gay community. Gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community that was targeted. And that most of those people were people of color. It just shows how the racism and the heterosexism are at work, even in the middle of a tragedy like this. If you refuse to name us, it is further violence against us. It just re-victimizes us.Robinson will give a public lecture Friday at 7 pm at the Lutheran Church of Hope in Anchorage and Sunday morning at St. John United Methodist Church.last_img read more

JUs probe panel yet to identify disparities in reevaluation of answer sheets

JUs probe panel yet to identify disparities in reevaluation of answer sheets

first_imgKolkata: The two-member enquiry committee constituted by Jadavpur University in August last year to probe procedural or other lapses in the evaluation of answer scripts of all the six Humanities subjects in which the varsity had conducted admission tests have not yet been able to ascertain the reason behind the disparity in marks during successive evaluation. The committee is scheduled to submit its enquiry report by this month. A retired Justice of Calcutta High Court and an external academician constitute the committee. Also Read – 3 injured, flight, train services hit as rains lash Bengal”The committee has held a number of hearings with different sections of people including academicians, teachers and students. The committee had earlier planned to submit the report by December but the process was delayed due to holidays during the Puja vacation and a number of persons who needed to be present in the hearing were not available. We have been informed that it would be submitted by this month but they have been unable to find out the reason behind the disparity of marks in the two evaluations,” a senior official of JU said. The committee is also likely to come up with suggestions on what should be the admission procedure. “I cannot divulge anything about the findings at this juncture,” said Ashutosh Ghosh, former Vice-Chancellor of Calcutta University who is one of the members of the probe panel. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedIt may be mentioned that there were allegations of improper evaluation of answer scripts of History and the varsity had to conduct re-evaluation with external academicians. It was found that there was a significant variation of marks secured by the candidates in the first and second evaluation. The first evaluation was conducted by professors of the History department while the second one was done by external experts. There were as many as 15 changes in the revised selection list for History. A total number of 15 candidates who were on the waiting list after the earlier evaluation, made it to the selection list after re-evaluation. There were cases where a student, who had scored 6 out of 100, got 32 after re-evaluation. A total of 344 scripts were re-evaluated. The merit list for admission was prepared on the basis of 50 percent marks in the board examination and 50 percent scored in the admission test. Apart from History, admission tests were held in English, Bengali, International Relations, Philosophy and Comparative Literature. Though there were minor lapses in the evaluation of scripts in the other subjects, the university’s ambit of probe involved all the six subjects for the sake of transparency. Bhaskar Sarkar, convener of the West Bengal College and University Professors Association (WBCUPA) said: “We have urged the university that the rules for admission should be same for all subjects — either it will be on the basis of marks in the board examinations or on the basis of marks in admission tests.”last_img read more

Turkey witnesses 31 increase in health tourism in 2017

first_imgIn addition to consolidating its position as an indispensable tourists destination, Turkey, in the recent years has created a niche in health tourism. It has primarily become a center of hair implantation by welcoming people from more than 70 countries who demanded hair implant services.Highlighting that Turkey has emerged as a pioneer and the “reference country” in hair transplantation across the world, Özlem Safiye Kurt, Council Member of Turkish Medical Tourism Development, announced that last there had been 31% increase in health tourism where more than 1 million arrivals amounted to health tourism leading to foreign exchange inflow of more than USD 10 billion.“Turkey is one of the leading countries in the world in the field of hair transplantation. Our doctors dealing with health tourism have serious hand skills attracting attention from around the world. Our achievements in this area are spreading throughout the world with every passing day. We aim to increase this figure to a much higher point by 2023. “Pointing out that Turkey has come under the spotlight in this area on a global scale. Kurt noted that demand from Middle Eastern countries like Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar are high and from equally responsive from European countries like Germany, the U.K., the Netherlands, Italy, Spain and France.According to Kurt, hair transplantation operations worldwide are expensive hence paying half the price in Turkey, along with its geographical proximity and hospitality people prefer Turkey which overall makes a positive contribution in the development of tourism potential in Turkey.last_img read more

Kickoff is scheduled for 1:25 p.m. with pregame coverage beginning four hours earlier on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. Top Stories The Cardinals (3-0) scored 24 points off turnovers.Carson Palmer passed for 311 yards and two touchdowns in winning his NFL-best ninth straight start. He improved to 16-2 in his last 18 starts.Palmer’s number-one target was once again Larry Fitzgerald, who finished with nine catches for 134 yards and two scores.Fitzgerald was the Cardinals leading receiver for the third straight week.The ground game excelled as well.Chris Johnson topped 100 yards, ending with 110 on 22 carries including two touchdowns.The Cardinals’ 3-0 start is their second in as many seasons.THE GOODThe “Larry” chants began early as No. 11 was targeted three times on the opening drive, including the first two snaps of the game. Fitzgerald caught passes for 21 yards and 13 yards before the offense was forced to punt. Fitzgerald now has at least one reception in 166 consecutive regular season games (173 including playoffs), a franchise record and longest active streak in the league.Quite the first quarter for Fitzgerald, who finished with five catches for 90 yards, a career-best first-quarter mark, surpassing his previous high of 75 yards. Three of those catches—23, 16 and 17 yards—came on the Cardinals second offensive possession, which ended with a Chris Johnson six-yard touchdown run, his first with Arizona, that made the score 21-0 with 14:56 to play in the first half. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires And because 13 is considered an unlucky number, Fitzgerald recorded his 14th career score against the Niners on an eight-yard catch to make it 47-7 with 5:15 to play in the fourth quarter. It was Fitzgerald’s second touchdown of the game and fifth of the season, more than any player in Cardinals history through the season’s first three games.THE BADIt’s not often heard, but referee Tony Corrente called out No. 68, left tackle Jared Veldheer, three times, all on the same drive in the first half, because of penalties. The first was a holding call, which negated a 44-yard catch by Michael Floyd; and then a pair of false start mistakes. The Cardinals were penalized four times in the first half.A low punt plus good return equaled excellent starting field position for the Niners late in the second quarter. The punt by Drew Butler traveled 34 yards and lacked hangtime, allowing Jarryd Hayne to run 37 yards to the Cardinals 19. Three plays later, Kaepernick scored on a 12-yard rush, making it 28-7 Arizona with 2:03 to play in the first half.Let the record show Palmer finally hit the ground via a sack with roughly five minutes to play in the third quarter. Arik Armstead came off the edge, beating right tackle Bobby Massie for the sack, the first one allowed by the Cardinals offensive line in the season’s first 10-and-a-half quarters. On the Cardinals very next possession, Johnson added his second rushing touchdown, this time from a yard out on third down. Through three drives, Johnson had carried the ball 10 time for 63 yards with his second score giving the Cardinals a 28-0 lead with 7:49 to play in the first half. He finished with 110 yards, his seventh career 100-yard game. As a team, the Cardinals closed with 139 rushing yards.No team has scored more defensive touchdowns than the Cardinals since 2013. They added their 11th and 12th in the first six minutes of the game. First, Bethel, playing his first defensive snap of the season, intercepted Kaepernick and returned it 21 yards for a score; and then Mathieu recorded his first career pick-6 with a 33 yard run back. Mathieu added a second interception in the second quarter.On the first play of the second half, the Cardinals recorded their fourth takeaway of the game. It was Jerraud Powers with the interception of Kaepernick. Four plays later, Palmer found Fitzgerald in the end zone for a four-yard score, his 13th against the Niners, more than any other player against San Francisco. Fitzgerald also went over 100 yards receiving for a second straight game for the first time since 2011.last_img read more

This contribution serves to implement the priorities of the committee for the preservation of island-wide cultural heritage in Cyprus.Since 2012, with the support of the EU and UNDP, the committee has conserved, structurally supported, physically protected or restored 31 heritage sites islandwide including Orthodox, Maronite and Armenian churches, mosques and minarets, fortifications, hamams, aqueducts and watermills.Additionally, 23 sites have benefited from simple, non-structural, small-scale works such as internal and external site cleaning, removal of vegetation from roofs and walls, minor repairs, replacement of doors, fences and windows. Conservation designs for future projects are ready for an additional 40 sites.Head of the Cyprus Settlement Support Unit Kjartan Björnsson underlined that the work of the bi-communal committee was an inspiration for everybody working to preserve the common history and legacy of Cyprus, and an essential element of the efforts to promote a united Cyprus for the future“Saving the island’s cultural heritage is a matter for all those living in Cyprus. At the same time it is a concern for international organisations, because it is a part of the global cultural heritage. The Technical Committee on Cultural Heritage taught us that as Turkish Cypriots and the Greek Cypriots we can be efficient when we cooperate, work and produce together,” commented Ali Tuncay and Takis Hadjidemetriou, representatives of the committee.“In the past years, these initiatives have brought together thousands of Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots demonstrating how cultural heritage can play a catalyst role in support of the ongoing peace and confidence building process. We are looking forward to continue supporting the work the of the Technical Committee in the coming years,” added UNDP Senior Programme Manager and Head of Office in Cyprus Tiziana Zennaro.In addition to conservation designs and works, this new €3 million phase of the programme includes new educational and community engagement activities which it is hoped will increase the opportunities to bring youth and people from all communities of Cyprus together, to reconnect and appreciate their common heritage.You May LikeUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoAngels And EntrepreneursRobert Herjavec Announce Venture Could Make You RichAngels And EntrepreneursUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
