BRAC Coming Soon Principi Says

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR A new BRAC round is closer than ever, with Congress certain to approve the next round by 2019, Anthony Principi, chairman of the 2005 BRAC Commission, said Thursday.“If I was a betting man, between now and 2019, I’d say 100 percent,” Principi, chairman of the Principi Group, told the Tampa Tribune following the monthly meeting of the Florida Defense Support Task Force.The new round most likely would be conducted in 2019, he said, although there is a chance that a grand bargain between Congress and the White House could force a BRAC to be held in 2017.Florida Sen. Bill Nelson (D), however, disagreed with Principi’s assessment. “I don’t see a BRAC happening anytime soon as there’s not enough interest in Congress for having one,” Nelson, a senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said in an email to the Tribune.Principi said Tampa’s MacDill Air Force Base is well positioned to survive a base closure round, but stressed the importance of continuing to carry out the day-to-day activities needed to support the installation.“I think MacDill will fare OK,” Principi said. “I learned as chairman of the last BRAC commission that you cannot assume any installation is safe. You have to make preparations and do the things to enhance the military value and reduce cost of operations. All those things are factors. There are low risks and high risks in every state and community,” he said.Establishing public-private partnerships, sharing the cost of operations, improving school systems and “making Washington aware of all the good things happening at MacDill” are the kinds of efforts that will help protect the installation, Principi said.“Florida is way out ahead of where other states are in being prepared. It is all about preparation. Once you make the [BRAC] list, the history is that there is an 86 percent chance of staying on the list,” he noted.last_img read more

Sen Sullivan talks erosion Donlin Mine and jobs in YK Delta visit

first_imgSenator Dan Sullivan (Photo courtesy of Dan Sullivan)U.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan visited 11 Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta villages in four days last week.Listen now“I was joking with my staff that I must have gained five to 10 pounds from all that great salmon that I ate,” Sullivan joked.Sullivan listened as villagers asked him about jobs, erosion and discussed their concerns about the proposed Donlin mine. How to prepare for and respond to erosion is one of the biggest problems facing many communities in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta for villages like Newtok, Napakiak and Chefornak. Chefornak is one of the villages that Sullivan visited; it sits near the coast.“It was a concern because some of those houses are really close to the shore,” Bernadette Lewis, the Executive Director for Chefornak Traditional Council, said.Lewis claimed that some of the houses sit about 10 feet from some bodies of water and that it’s expensive to move houses.“We don’t have funding if we’re going to move homes away from the shore,” Lewis said.Sullivan says that the main problem is getting funding that is already available delivered to those communities who need it. He says that funding was increased for the Denali Commission, a federal agency that is helping some communities move. But, he says that the best solutions will come from community members.“One of the solutions is to build our own housing with our own materials,” Sullivan said.The Y-K Delta is one of Alaska’s most impoverished regions, and that makes job growth a top concern among residents. Again, Sullivan points to community innovation as the best solution.One industry that could spur job growth is mining. The proposed Donlin gold mine promises more than 3,200 jobs at the height of its construction, and 1,000 annually.Sullivan wouldn’t say outright whether he supports the mine, but he does say that the permitting process could be streamlined.“They have to meet a very high standard. The standard is they can’t impact the natural resource that we already have out there, and that is the fish,” Sullivan said. “But the way I see, it’s incumbent on the federal government to move that along.”And Sullivan says there were concerns about the route of the proposed gas line that would provide the fuel to power the mine’s operations. Donlin Gold, the company developing the mine, plans to build a 300-mile pipeline from Cook Inlet, across the Alaska Range, to the site.last_img read more

Blizzards Overwatch could seriously replace Team Fortress 2

first_imgBlizzard’s first FPS is still far from release, but that didn’t stop the company from demoing Overwatch at its PAX East booth. I got to play two full rounds of the Team Fortress 2-like shooter, and even this early (a closed beta isn’t even planned until this fall), it looks like a legit successor to TF2. Watch the video below for the full 20-minute play session.The map had a standard attack-defend layout in a Japanese castle. As an attacker, I had to stand in the capture zones long enough to take them in the first round, and as a defender, I had to kill enemies before they could capture zones in the second round. Simple, and a lot like Control Point mode. in TF2 Also like in TF2, I had my pick from several offensive, defensive, and support characters to do it.The Overwatch demo had 14 different playable characters, spread across different roles and with wildly different designs. There’s a dwarf engineer named Torbjorn who can build turrets and drop ammo packs. There’s a woman in a rocket-launching suit of powered armor named Pharah who can hover. There’s Zarya, a distaff version of the TF2 Heavy with wild pink hair and very fun gravity manipulating powers. There’s a sort-of-knight with a sledgehammer and an energy shield named Reinhardt. And those archetypes don’t even count the robot guru (Kenyatta), the cowboy (McCree), the samurai archer (Hanzo), the cyborg angel (Mercy), or the genius gorilla (Winston). It’s a bit nuts.I tried out most of the characters, and got thoroughly wrecked through the attack round as I figured out how they all played. There’s a lot of variety here, with each character getting a handful of weapons and skills, like in a MOBA. Reaper, the assassin ghost, dual wields shotguns and can spin around and attack everyone around him, or teleport to different locations within his line-of-sight, or simply become intangible and invulnerable for a time (but unable to attack). McCree, on the other hand, can fire his revolvers one shot at a time or empty the cylinder with an alt fire, dive forward with an evasive roll, and slow down time to mark and then kill enemies around him with a very Red Dead Redemption-like special attack. Reinhardt can project an energy shield forward to completely block attacks until it shatters, charge forward and slam enemies, and swing his hammer.In a very MOBA-like touch, each character has an ultimate ability on a timer they can use to sway the fight, like Reaper’s Death Blossom spin, McCree’s Deadeye mark-and-kill attack, and Reinhardt’s area-of-effect Earthshatter attack. It’s like every character has their own version of an Ubercharge/Kritzkrieg.The characters all play wildly different, again calling back to the nine unique classes of Team Fortress 2. Reinhardt is slow like the Heavy and doesn’t have a ranged attack, but he can absorb damage like a sponge and could help a team get past choke points. Hanzo and Widowmaker respectively play like the Sniper with a bow and the Sniper with a rifle, but with their own tricks to mix things up; Hanzo has trick shots and can grab ledges, while Widowmaker can use a grappling hook (with a long cooldown) to reach good sniping positions. Tracer is like the Scout crossed with the Flash; she runs extremely quickly, and while she can’t double-jump she can short-range teleport everywhere. I can see balance issues becoming a problem (Tracer players seemed to dominate from the other rounds I watched), but the variety of roles will mean some very interesting team dynamics. It’s not quite the huge selection of MOBA games like DOTA 2 or League of Legends, but there are more choices than in Team Fortress 2, and with more mechanisms to keep track of.After getting destroyed constantly in the first round, I settled on Torbjorn in the second. I play Engineer when on defense in TF2, and Torbjorn is the most Engineer-like character Overwatch has. He can’t build teleporters or dispensers, but he can build and upgrade turrets and drop armor packs. He even uses scrap — pickups that only appear to him that enable his turret upgrades — and he performs those upgrades by hitting things with his hammer. He’s really Engineery. His ultimate attack is Molten Core, which super-charges him and gives him unlimited scrap so he can rapidly max out his turret and then beat enemies to death with his hammer. It’s also a shout-out to one of the first raids in World of Warcraft.Torbjorn, the engineer.I set up a turret near the capture point, in a corner where it could target enemies coming in from any direction. It performed well when I deployed it, but it really shined when I collected scrap to upgrade it to level three. I ended up getting the play of the game thanks to the turret, which got five kills in quick succession while I ran around the map like an idiot. Hilariously, the play was displayed at the end of the round from my point of view, which showed messages of my turret killing enemies while I tried unsuccessfully to jump over a gap and ended up dying. Voice chat was enabled, and I heard all 11 other players laughing at the sight.Blizzard plans a closed beta for Overwatch this fall, but we probably won’t see open access to the game until 2016. It’s not clear whether it will be released as a full-price retail game, or if Blizzard will take a free-to-play MOBA approach. Based on what I’ve seen, however, it could be the varied, team-based, colorful shooter for which we’ve been waiting to succeed Team Fortress 2. TF2 is still a great game, but it’s been around for eight years, and we could use a new take on the idea.last_img read more

Smart Dog Collar Is Like a Mood Ring for Your Canine Companion

first_img Geek Pick: Fi Smart Dog Collar Sniffs Out Your PetMan Saves Dog Left Tied to Electrical Cord on Side of Interstate Overpass Stay on target Humans have a tendency of attaching very human-like motivations to the behavior of our canine companions, but what if there were a way to actually know what your dog was thinking? That’s the goal of Inupathy, a smart dog collar that aims to use your dog’s vitals to determine how he or she is feeling absent any understanding of the animal’s body language.Inupathy is a harness that slips around the dog’s front legs and rests on the back. It has an LED on the back section that glows different colors to indicate different moods — like a mood ring for dogs. The data gathered by Inupathy appears to be limited to heart rate. While that’s not enough to know what a dog is thinking, it’s definitely a useful metric to gauge behavior. Inupathy can estimate when your dog is happy, calm, excited, or concentrating. There’s also an app that can track these conditions over time.The inventor of Inupathy, Japanese biologist Joji Yamaguchi, says Inupathy has helped him learn about more subtle aspects of his dog’s behavior. For example, Inupathy indicated Yamaguchi’s dog was more agitated when the door of a room is open than when it’s closed. That’s all well and good, but most dog owners will tell you they have a pretty good handle on how their dog is feeling based on body language. For the more obvious behavioral stuff, like being excited or happy, dogs already have a built-in mechanism to help us understand them — it’s called a tail.You can’t get the Inupathy right now, but pre-orders were sold for $169 and should ship soon. That does seem high when your dog already has a tail.last_img read more

Study shows competitive swimmer bodies consistent in morphology across race event lengths

first_img More information: Christian M. Gagnon et al. Elite swimmers do not exhibit a body mass index trade-off across a wide range of event distances, Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences (2018). DOI: 10.1098/rspb.2018.0684AbstractThere is a trade-off reflected in the contrasting phenotypes of elite long-distance runners, who are typically leaner, and elite sprinters, who are usually more heavily muscled. It is unclear, however, whether and how swimmers’ bodies vary across event distances from the 50 m swim, which is about a 20–30 s event, to the 10 000 m marathon swim, which is about a 2 h event. We examined data from the 2012 Olympics to test whether swimmers’ phenotypes differed across event distances. We show that across all swimming event distances, from the 50 m sprint to the 10 000 m marathon, swimmers converge on a single optimal body mass index (BMI) in men’s and women’s events, in marked contrast with the strong inverse relationship between BMI and event distance found in runners. The absence of a speed–endurance trade-off in the body proportions of swimmers indicates a fundamental difference in design pressures and performance capability in terrestrial versus aquatic environments. The impact of extreme exercise on breathing in GB Olympic boxers and swimmers Journal information: Proceedings of the Royal Society B Explore further A trio of researchers with Hunter College of the City University of New York has found that despite swimming in vastly different events, competitive swimmers tend to have the same body mass index (BMI). In their paper published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, Christian Gagnon, Michael Steiper and Herman Pontzer describe their study of elite swimmer morphology and how it compared to elite runner morphology. Most people have likely recognized the differences in the way elite runners are built—those who run short distances very fast tend to have a lot of muscle. Those who run for very long distances, on the other hand, tend to be very thin. These differences make sense logically—carrying extra muscle or fat in long-distance running would require more energy expenditure. In this new effort, the researchers wondered if the same might be true for swimmers.To learn more about elite swimmer morphology, the researchers accessed a publicly available database that holds information for Olympic athletes. For their study, they focused on swimmers competing in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London—and only those who swam freestyle (aka the Australian crawl). For each athlete, they looked at height, weight and in which events they swam. The first two metrics allowed them to calculate a BMI for each athlete, which they used as a means for comparing morphology between swimmers.The researchers discovered that elite swimmers all tended to have a similar morphology regardless of the events in which they swam. Those who swam short 50-meter races had approximately the same BMI as those who swam much longer 10,000-meter marathons. They did note that male and female swimmers had slightly different BMI averages—23 for men and 21 for women, and that height did not appear to play a factor in different length events.The researchers suggest that the differences in morphology between swimmers and runners is likely due to gravity. Runners have to carry weight with them as they run; swimmers, on the other hand, do not—their weight is borne by the water.center_img Citation: Study shows competitive swimmer bodies consistent in morphology across race event lengths (2018, August 15) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-08-competitive-swimmer-bodies-morphology-event.html This document is subject to copyright.

first_img CT Angiography (CTA) | August 07, 2019 VIDEO: Walk Around of a Siemens Go.Top Dedicated Cardiac Scanner This is a quick walk around of the new Siemens Somatom Go.top cardiovascular edition compact computed tomography (CT) scanner on display at the Society Of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) 2019 meeting in July. It is aimed at cardiology office based imaging and was released this past spring at the American College of Cardiology (ACC) meeting.The system has removable tablets on each side of the scanner where the tech can adjust the machine, review scout scans and trigger the scanner. The idea is to improve workflow and allow the tech to remain at the bedside longer to be with the patient, rather tucked away in a remote control room using an intercom.The entire system is built into the gantry seen here, so there is no need for extra equipment in a closet, cabinet or server tower.It comes in a 128 slice configuration with 4 cm of anatomical coverage per rotation.It uses the Stellar detector and tin filtration to eliminate low energy photons and help lower dose. It can be programmed to aid workflow by automatically removing bone, create cured planar reconstructions, lung CAD and other post-processing features so more time can be spent on reading scans. The scanner also comes with a HeartFlow FFR-CT starter pack.Find more information on this system in these related articles:New Cardiovascular CT Technology Entering the MarketNew Technology Highlights on the ACC 2019 Exhibit Floor Sponsored Videos View all 142 items Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:00Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

6 top Costa Rica sports stories of 2014

first_imgFootball is by far Costa Rica’s favorite sport, so it’s not surprising that 2014 will be remembered as a year of impressive performances by both “Las Ticas” and “Los Ticos.”“La Sele,” as Ticos affectionately call the Men’s National Team, reached the quarterfinals of the FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014, an achievement that finally outmached what the 1990 team did in Italy at the country’s first World Cup appearance. At the time, La Sele advanced to the knockout stage in an accomplishment remembered this year in a film succinctly entitled “Italia 90.”But Costa Rica’s other Sele also made headlines, as the Women’s National Team earned its first qualification to a World Cup and currently are preparing for the competition that will take place in Canada next year.In addition, the country in 2014 also held for the first time a FIFA World event in March-April, when it hosted the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup.Here’s a roundup of Costa Rica’s most important sports news of the year:1. La Sele, undefeated, reaches quarterfinals at the FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 Costa Rica’s forward Bryan Ruiz (R) heads the ball to score as Italy’s goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon (2nd R) can only look on. Ruiz’s goal was the difference in the 1-0 shock victory. Javier Soriano/AFPFew teams arrived in Brazil with a bigger underdog label than Costa Rica. The World Cup’s draw in December 2013 resulted in the country joining Group D —nicknamed “The Group of Death” — with three former world champions: England, Uruguay and Italy.That label turned into a movie-like run for Los Ticos, as they ended the first stage atop the group with unexpected upsets against Uruguay and Italy, and a tie with England that quieted many critics, oddsmakers and rival teams.Celebrations over those performance even included Costa Rica’s president, Luis Guillermo Solís, who joined thousands of Ticos on the streets of San José.La Sele then achieved an even bigger upset by defeating Greece in the round-of-16 match. The game ended 1-1 in regular time and was decided by a penalty shootout.With a 4-3 lead, Costa Rica goalie Keylor Navas kept his star status growing by deflecting a shot by Theofanis Gekas. Then, defender Michael Umaña smoothly knocked in the last goal that eliminated Greece and sparked a celebration all across Costa Rica.At quarterfinals, the dream ended for La Sele with another penalty shootout that unfortunately favored the Netherlands, with the Dutch squad scoring all of their shots, and goalie Tim Krul saving shots by Bryan Ruiz and Michael Umaña.Nevertheless, back home La Sele received a heroes’ welcome and will end the year with an undefeated mark of 12 consecutive matches. They also ended as the North and Central American regions’ best-ranked team, placing 15th on FIFA’s overall list, ahead of both the United States and Mexico.To round up a great year, Keylor Navas, Bryan Ruiz, Joel Campbell are part of the Tico honorees in six different categories at the 2014 CONCACAF Awards.2. Tico goalie Keylor Navas signs with legendary club Real Madrid Keylor Navas poses with a Real Madrid jersey. AFPPrior to his outstanding performance at the Brazil World Cup, where he was one of the top-three goalies, Tico star Keylor Navas completed an impressive season with his Spanish club Levante UD that earned him Spain’s Best Goalkeeper award at the Professional Football League Awards ceremony for the 2013-2014 season.Then, in August, Navas became the first Costa Rican to sign with Spain’s world-famous club Real Madrid, on a transfer from Levante.The club paid the €10 million ($13.5 million) buyout clause to Levante that took Navas to Spain’s most succesful club. He now is competing with Spain’s national team keeper Iker Casillas for a spot on the roster.His arrival to Real Madrid, however, has been anything but easy, with Navas playing only a few official games. “No player likes to be on the bench. I practice hard every day and try to be prepared for the moment I get the chance to play,” he told members of the news media.In October, a bizarre case in Costa Rica involving illegal prying into his personal life by law enforcement officials had him in the spotlight again, for all the wrong reasons.Costa Rican Supreme Court justices reported that 24 Judicial Investigation Police (OIJ) officers and four prosecutors searched a police database a total of 51 times for personal information on Navas and two of his sisters earlier this year.At the time, OIJ Director Francisco Segura said, “we have no reason to investigate Keylor Navas or any of his relatives. We don’t know why these people did this.” Segura then confirmed the judicial branch had no open investigation of Navas and there was no legal legal justification for the snooping by law enforcement employees.With his new team, Navas won the UEFA Super Cup 2014 in August, and on Dec. 20 the FIFA Club World Cup. Three days later Navas won CONCACAF’s Player of the Year.3. Marriage of [World] Champions Costa Rica’s first — and currently only — boxing world champions on Saturday beat their opponents by knockouts. (Courtesy of Canal de Boxeo)Hanna Gabriel and Bryan “El Tiquito” Vásquez, who are married, earned the country its firsts and only World Boxing Championships.Gabriel won her first title in 2009 when she took the World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight (147 pounds) World Championship. In 2010, Gabriel defeated the Dominican Republic’s Gardy Pena in Bayamón, Puerto Rico, to win the WBO junior middleweight (154 pounds) World Champion title in a fight that lasted only 11 seconds.She succesfully defended her title twice, but in 2013 she lost to Dominican Oxandia Castillo by a knockout in the second round.On Dec. 20, Gabriel regained the World middleweight title in a victory by technical knockout to Mexican Paty “Elegante” Ramírez, 36 seconds into the second round of a fight held in San Juan, Puerto Rico.That same night in Quintana Roo, Mexico, her husband “Tiquito” Vásquez also won his fight by a technical knock out against Mexican Sergio “Yeyo” Thompson, who refused to come out in the ninth round.The fight was Vásquez’s defense of the World Boxing Association Super featherweight title (130 pounds) he won in San José in 2011.However, despite winning the fight, the title will be vacant as Vásquez prior to the fight registered a weight of 133 pounds, meaning he will have to fight again to regain his title.4. Following historic World Cup performance, coach Jorge Luis Pinto quits the team Costa Rica’s Colombian coach Jorge Luis Pinto reacts during a Group D football match between Italy and Costa Rica at the Pernambuco Arena in Recife during the 2014 FIFA World Cup on June 20, 2014. Ronaldo Schemidt/AFP“I like this group. Do not be afraid. We are confident that we will do a great job. The fiercer the bull, the better the fight,” Costa Rica’s coach Jorge Luis Pinto told media following the draw for the World Cup, where La Sele landed in the “Group of Death.”But after leading Costa Rica to its greatest World Cup performance ever, the Colombian in July failed to reach a deal with the Costa Rican Football Federation (FEDEFUT) and left the team.At a press conference the coach said that despite his interest in remaining in charge of the team, several of his requests to continue were not accepted by FEDEFUT. Among his requirements Pinto had asked for the dismissal of assistant coaches Paulo Wanchope and Luis Marín. He wanted to replace them with Colombian staff.The situation then escalated when Pinto told international media that one of the main reasons he would leave the team was that one of his assistants (it was later revealed that he was referring to Wanchope) had been boycotting his job and that FEDEFUT members were looking for his dismissal from the beginning of his time with the team.Several Sele players and other team staff members came to the defense of Wanchope and said the Colombian coach kept an excessive disciplinary regime that included surprise night visits to their bedrooms to see if they were already sleeping. Others claimed that he often was verbally abusive with players and staff members.Wanchope provisionally took over as coach of La Sele during several matches following the Brazil Cup. FEDEFUT currently is in search of a new coach who will be charged with qualifying La Sele for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.On Dec. 19, Pinto was announced as the new head coach of Honduras.5. Las Ticas had a historic year Carolina Venegas (9) celebrates with Katherine Alvarado, who assisted her in scoring an impressive bicycle kick in the last minute. Gloriana Villalobos (7) runs to join the celebration. AFP/The Tico TimesAlso known as La Sele, the Costa Rican Women’s National Team had a great year, earning their first qualification to a World Cup, something Las Ticas had only achieved in youth tournaments.La Sele in October participated in the CONCACAF qualification tournament in the United States, where they took their group’s top spot with a 3-0 record against Jamaica, Martinique and Mexico. Then, in semifinals, the team beat Trinidad and Tobago in a penalty shootout with an impressive performance by keeper Dinnia Díaz, who set a national record of three penalty shots detained in a qualifier match.Díaz’s stellar job sparked a national debate following a headline used by a sensationalist newspaper that printed a cover with her photo under the word “Keylar,” a name alluding to the men’s Sele goalie. The comparison infuriated more than a few people, and even led to an op-ed appearing in The Tico Times on the issue.The controversy went viral with people commenting on the unfortunate cover with several phrases of disapproval, including a popular one entitled “Her name is Dinnia, not Keylar.”The team secured a spot for the World Cup Canada 2015 and reached the tournament’s final match against the world’s No. 1 team, the U.S. The powerful Gringa squad had no troubles taking the title with a 6-0 routing of La Sele.The match, however, was a taste of what the team can expect at the world competition, and a reminder that they have a lot of homework to do in the meantime.6. Good start on the waves Jenny Kalmbach, a Tica SUP surfer and racer, now lives in Hawaii. Ashley Harrell/The Tico TimesJenny Kalmbach in May gave Costa Rica its first-ever medal at the Stand Up Paddling (SUP) World Championship in Nicaragua.Born and raised in Costa Rica, she currently is a resident of Kona, Hawaii.
