Integrated infrastructure monitoring

first_imgTRACKWATCH integrated monitoring systems are designed to log all signalling activity, enabling failures to be located and potential problems to be identified. Suitable for mobile use or permanent installation at level crossings and large interlockings, the modular concept has been developed by Solartron.Isolated measurement pods are connected to spare signal relay contacts, and use low-current resistance measurement techniques to record transitions on up to 32 channels with 20ms accuracy. Signalling installations with up to 1600 relays can be monitored by one unit using a PC-based controller running Altair logging software.The controller has a modem for alarm reporting and data uploading, and a hard disc for data storage. Track circuit diagrams are used to display stored data using Altair analysis software centrally or on a portable computer.

Anthony Joshua to fight Pulev in December

first_imgRelatedPosts Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Dillian Whyte to face Povetkin in November rematch Anthony Joshua, Okolie plot world title double Eddie Hearn is splashing more than £5 million on his open-air but closed-doors Fight Camp, but his superstar Anthony Joshua will now have to wait until December for his return to the ring against Kubrat Pulev.So massively higher are the pay scales for truly elite boxers that while even Dillian Whyte will appear in next month’s last of Hearn’s four fan-less promotions in his (very large) back garden, even a discounted purse for Joshua cannot be met short of a crowded 02 Arena. Whyte is taking a wage cut for his world heavyweight championship eliminator against Alexander Povetkin at the end of August to accommodate the loss of a potential £1 million in gate revenue.But for Joshua to come even close to his usual eight-figure pay night will require at least a £5 million live attendance.Since crowd sizes for boxing are not expected to be raised by the government to 50 per cent capacity until mid-winter, Joshua’s defence of his world heavyweight titles has now been pushed back from October to December 5 or 12.By then he will have been out of action for a full year, since he regained those belts in his Saudi rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr.Hearn explains: “I’ve just spoken to Josh and although he’s champing at the bit to fight again he gets it. “The most we could hope for in October or November is a crowd of about 2,000. We can’t even rely on going somewhere abroad like Saudi for a big site fee because every country has a coronavirus problem.“One upside of December is that Fury will be having his trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder six days before Christmas so both events will spice things up for a fight between Tyson and AJ next year….as long as they both win.”Meanwhile Hearn is investing in helping to bring boxing back before the TV public.The garden setting for a ring beneath a Wembley-size canopy is hilltop in Essex with dramatic views over London.Tags: Anthony JoshuaDillian WhyteEddie HearnKubrat Pulevlast_img read more

Senior swimmers jump in one last time this weekend

first_imgLate January isn’t typically thought of as the ideal time for a swim — current water temperatures in Santa Monica are hovering around 60 degrees, but that isn’t keeping a certain group of elite swimmers out of the pool this weekend. Over the next two days, the USC women’s swimming team will compete against No. 2 Stanford and No. 7 California for the right to be called the best in the Golden State.The No. 5 Women of Troy (6-1, 4-0 Pac-12) are looking to sweep this weekend heading into their final regular season meet against No. 19 UCLA (6-1, 3-1 Pac-12), who will also face Stanford and Cal this weekend.

Video Tutorial: Better, Faster, Stronger Editing Tips

first_img1. Learn Your FootageKnowing everything about what you have to work with is incredibly valuable when it comes to assembling a timeline. Go through every clip and analyze its content. You can do this by putting them in a single timeline and pulling out your favorites.A great way to highlight footage you want to work with is to raise your favorite shots to the second track in a new timeline. Then, your next step will be to ripple-edit the remaining shots in the lower track.2. OrganizationBe. Completely. Organized. Label clips that are good or bad — make notes about which parts work and which don’t. Is it a drone shot? Is it an interview clip? Folders, bins, and labeling are key to a fast and successful edit.(Quick tip: if you change your browser mode to thumbnail, it can speed up your workflow immensely. You can now skim through clips without even clicking them.)3. Create ProxiesIf you’re working with incredibly large files that take forever to process, take the time to create proxies. This may eat up some time at first, but in the long run, it will make your edits way more efficient. Trust me.4. Reveal in ProjectIf you’re searching for a clip’s origin, instead of skimming through multiple bins, just right-click and select reveal in project. This can speed up the process of looking for clips, audio, assets, and sequences. You can even select reveal in finder to find the original files on your computer.5. Low ResExport low resolution files for feedback. Instead of doing high-res exports that take up space and upload time, create a smaller file. I like to set my export setting to YouTube 1080p then customize my bit rate, change VBR to CBR, then let the export sit in the 6-8 realm.And there you have it.

10 months agoChelsea ace Hazard: Kicking me inspires more magic

first_imgChelsea ace Hazard: Kicking me inspires more magicby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea ace Eden Hazard admits he welcomes being kicked in games.Hazard finds it a compliment.He has been one of the five most-fouled players in the league every year since he joined Chelsea. Twice he has been the most fouled (the title-winning campaigns of 2014/15 and 2016/17) and already this term he leads the way, illegally halted on average every 24 minutes.”Sometimes it’s tough. For seven years I have got kicked all the time. But now I take care of my ankles, my knees! We have one of the best medical departments in the world.”I don’t like to say I like it, but when people kick me it gives me a feeling that I am too good, or they just want to stop me and they can’t.

Auburn Basketball Now Has The No. 1 Recruiting Class In The SEC For 2016

first_imgAuburn has the best basketball recruiting class for 2016.Auburn Basketball ClassAs of roughly 12 p.m. E.T. Sunday, Auburn’s men’s basketball program has the best recruiting class in the SEC for 2016. Yes, you read that correctly. The Tigers, after receiving the commitment of five-star small forward Mustapha Heron, have rose in 247 Sports’ Team Rankings to the top of the SEC and No. 7 in the country. Auburn has three commitments in the class: Heron, three-star point guard Jared Harper and three-star Anfernee McLemore. Now, there is a long way to go before teams are done recruiting for 2016. Kentucky will surely add multiple elite recruits to its class and probably end up with the top class in the conference. But, for a little while, Bruce Pearl’s program can claim to be at the top of the SEC recruiting mountain, and that’s pretty cool.last_img read more

Mens basketball Ohio State defeats Appalachian State 8067 for fourth straight win

Ohio State senior forward Jae’Sean Tate finishes a dunk in the first half against Appalachian State on Dec. 16, 2017 at the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Ashley Nelson | Station ManagerThe last time a team from the Sun Belt Conference entered the Schottenstein Center two years ago, it handed Ohio State a crushing defeat that ended up being a major factor in keeping the Buckeyes out of the NCAA Tournament.Only four members of the team that lost to Texas-Arlington still put on a Scarlet and Gray jersey, but veterans Keita Bates-Diop and Jae’Sean Tate wouldn’t allow a night like that to occur a second time.Tate scored 19 points and Bates-Diop added 16 with eight rebounds to lead Ohio State (9-3) past Appalachian State (5-7), 80-67 Saturday evening. Freshman forward Kaleb Wesson had 16 points and eight rebounds and redshirt senior guard Kam Williams also was in double-figures, with 11 points.A week had passed since head coach Chris Holtmann’s team last played a game, which triggered thoughts of a possible letdown. The first half provided little excitement, with Ohio State unable to grasp control of the game until Bates-Diop created some momentum before the break.With less than two minutes remaining in the first half, Bates-Diop deflected an attempted pass from Mountaineers forward Hunter Seacat into the backcourt. Bates-Diop dove on the ball and passed it off to guard Andrew Dakich, who drove to the basket and left it for Tate for the two-handed slam.That play was part of a 6-0 run to close the half, and the Buckeyes led 40-27. Holtmann said that play sparked his team and picked the offense out of a drought.“That’s an expectation for an older guy to do that,” he said. “It’s an expectation for all our players to do that and I don’t think we did that every time tonight, which was disappointing. But that was a really, really special play.”Bates-Diop’s lay-in in the beginning of the second half gave Ohio State a 17-point lead. Then, following a fire alarm that caused people inside the arena to evacuate, the Mountaineers cut their deficit to nine with an 8-0 run.Leading 60-47 out of the under-12 media timeout, Wesson finished at the rim, Tate flew in for a dunk and Jackson banked in a 3 to give the Buckeyes a comfortable 20-point lead.Ohio State forced 18 turnovers. The Buckeyes shot 53 percent for the game.Entering the game, Appalachian State guards Ronshad Shabazz and Justin Forrest were averaging 21.8 and 16.8 points, respectively. Saturday against the Buckeyes, Shabazz had 15 and Forrest had 12, shooting a collective 1-for-8 from beyond the arc.“We knew we had to be active because they have a real high-powered motion offense,” Williams said. “So just getting deflections, taking it one stop at a time, one possession at a time. When we put that together, very few teams can execute against us.”Less than three minutes into the second half, prior to a Mountaineers free-throw attempt, the fire alarms sounded at the Schott and fans were told via an emergency response system inside the arena to exit the building. After roughly seven minutes, fans were allowed to re-enter the building and play resumed following a brief warm-up period.The event caused a delay of about 14 minutes.Sophomore center Micah Potter and freshman forward Kyle Young both returned from an ankle injury Saturday, after missing two games and one game, respectively. Potter played just one minute while Young played 13 minutes.Holtmann said Potter told him that his ankle was feeling “as good as it has felt” since suffering the injury on Nov. 19 against Northeastern. Holtmann added that Young played more than anticipated because of Wesson’s foul trouble.Up Next:The Buckeyes are back on the court Tuesday against The Citadel at 7 p.m. read more
