You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here InspirationBy Don LindseyAs a kid, I lived in an inner-city neighborhood in Dayton, Ohio on a street named Hudson Avenue.  While the area is very dangerous these days, back in my childhood, it was still a tightknit little community where everyone knew each other.I had a small group of friends that I would hang out with and any free time we got was spent playing some sort of sport or hide and seek. My best friend at that time, Tony Gibson, lived across the street from me.  A lot of my weekends and non-school nights were spent at his house where we’d spend all night playing with our toys and video games.  Spending this much time there lead to me becoming very close to the family.  His mother to this day is still family to me and his grandparents are people that I still think about and miss very much.Mr. Gibson was the typical nice old man who dressed well and always had a kind smile on his face.  I remember having a lot of conversations with him as he sat on his swinging chair on the front porch.  He had a great sense of humor and I remember laughing a lot when we talked.Not ever knowing my grandfathers (they both passed away before I was born), Mr. Gibson sort of filled that role with advice and wisdom.  When he passed away, I can remember feeling as if one of the family’s patriarchs had left.  I can’t imagine how his grandchildren and family felt.Mrs. Gibson or “Granny” is someone that I consider to be one of my all-time favorite people.  She had a stroke sometime before I met the family which led to her being paralyzed on one side of her body making movement and communication difficult. This, however, did not slow her down. I will always remember playing out in the back yard with Tony and having her call us in for lunch.  “Boys! Eat!” she’d yell out.  While speaking sentences proved problematic for her, she could say one or two words and get her point across just fine and we’d rush into the kitchen for lunch.  The things that lady did with food will amaze me until the day I’m planted and one of the best things about being married to Tammy (her great-granddaughter) is that on holidays some of her recipes will surface bringing back so many wonderful memories.Speaking of being married to Tammy, Granny seemed to know before any of us that we were compatible and had chemistry.  I can remember once when Tammy was visiting, and I was at the house also visiting that Granny kept looking at me and then at Tammy with a knowing smile.  When we were married, Granny was very much on my mind and I could almost feel her smiling down from Heaven.While writing this, I have been fighting back emotions.  From missing these wonderful people and feeling sadness to reminiscing back to happy times spent with them and feeling blessed to have met them.  The one thing that is a constant is that when I get to the grandparent stage, I hope to be half of the positive influence that these two were on the people that they were around.  I wasn’t even an actual grandchild and yet I felt just as loved as anybody in the family. If I can make those, I come into contact with feel that way, then I’m doing pretty well in life.God bless and have a great week. 1 COMMENT Please enter your name here Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 last_img read more

The site is located at the footofMt. Rokko. On the north of the site there are beautiful mountains and on the south side there is Seto Inland Sea. So that it is typical Seto Inland Sea type climate. It is hot in summer, it is relatively warm in winter. The site is a slope where there is a mountain behind to the north and national forest at further north of the mountain.Save this picture!ConceptOn the site flat part is small because of the slopes. On the north side many trees have grown exuberantly on the mountain behind the site. We designed the house to preserve the natural green environment as much as possible. We designed to fit small footprint of basement, and floor space of the 1st floor and the 2nd floor are stepwise increase. Therefore the house can coexist with the nature without damage to the trees on the north mountain.Save this picture!© Yohei Sasakura / sasa no kurashaWe had to achieve that client family can ensure their privacy and that they can enjoy the nature at the same time. So we designed a space where the sea and the mountain directly connect each other by sliding tunnel-like tube with segmented into four layers. Therefor the tunnel-like tube works as ‘brise-soleil’Save this picture!© Yohei Sasakura / sasa no kurashaThe four layered ‘brise-soleil’ can shade from strong sunshine in summer and late afternoon sun, and can take in indirect sunshine which is reflected by the light shelf to bring brightness into rooms inside. Additionally fresh air from supply air sleeve of basement is cooled by cool cement and is flowed into each room via stair hall via stair hall. And the air is warmed by each room. The warmed air is exhausted by the heat exhauster window and the fan with temperature sensor at top part of the ‘brise-soleil’.Save this picture!First Floor PlanIn winter low-height sunshine passes into each room through gap of the layered ‘brise-soleil’, accumulate the heat into cement slab on the floor. If client family uses floor panel heating system just as subsidiary system, they can have a comfortable life with less air-conditioning facilities.Save this picture!© Yohei Sasakura / sasa no kurashaThe ‘brise soleil’ gives not only framed beautiful scenery into each room but also shade function from the other line of sight. Additionally the ‘brise soleil’ can be physically adjusted (e.g. each layer can be slid as you like) for many purposes. So client family can enjoy various change of atmosphere in accordance with season, time and so on. They can also enjoy fresh air from any direction into any rooms in every season and time because they can open the apertures without any concern for their privacy.Save this picture!© Yohei Sasakura / sasa no kurashaClient family would have a nice life with feeling nature at the house. They would enjoy beautiful and fresh scenery of both sea and mountain for all seasons because they can naturally see Seto Inland Sea and the mountain through the layered ‘brise soleil’. They would enjoy brilliant sea and beautiful night scenery, too.Save this picture!© Yohei Sasakura / sasa no kurashaProject gallerySee allShow lessPolish Pavilion Milan Expo 2015 / 2pm ArchitekciSelected ProjectsPassenger Terminal Complex Suvarnabhumi Airport / JahnSelected Projects Share Slide House / y+M design officeSave this projectSaveSlide House / y+M design office Projects Area:  199 m² Photographs Japan Save this picture!© Yohei Sasakura / sasa no kurasha+ 34 Share CopyHouses•Japan Slide House / y+M design officecenter_img “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Architects: y+M design office Area Area of this architecture project Houses CopyAbout this officey+M design officeOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesJapanPublished on August 27, 2015Cite: “Slide House / y+M design office” 26 Aug 2015.

The site will remain open until midnight on New Year’s Eve to facilitate those wishing to attend the New Year’s Eve Fireworks display.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up There will be a security presence at the Cleeve’s site for the duration of the parking.Limerick City and County Council is also making its 85 space staff car park behind its headquarters at Merchant’s Quay available for free parking for the next three weekends in December from 9am to 9pm. Access is from Nicholas Street and security will be provided for the duration of the free parking initiative.The spaces, called ‘Park & Strides’ are designed specifically for shoppers and other visitors to Limerick city centre to allow them to soak up the unique atmosphere of Limerick during the festive period.Both sites provide shoppers and other visitors to the city centre with free spaces and this late night availability ties in with retailers throughout the city centre who are opening late on Fridays and extra hours on Sunday in the run up to Christmas.Over recent years, the council has provided free on-street parking, either in the mornings or afternoons. However feedback indicated that it was almost impossible to avail of this offer as all of the on-street spaces were taken and there was little or no turnover of spaces throughout the day.The introduction of the ‘Park and Strides’ initiative will guarantee more than 200 free car park spaces every day and more than 300 spaces at weekends over the Christmas period.Mayor Stephen Keary said the provision of the ‘Park & Strides’ was in keeping with Healthy Ireland, the national framework for improved health and wellbeing.“The council is encouraging members of the public to be physically active this Christmas and walk the last five to ten minutes of their journey to shop in the city centre,” he explained.Limerick Chamber chief executive James Ring said the provision of free car parking sends out a positive signal that Limerick city centre is open for business.“We’re asking retailers to stay open late on Friday nights and on Sundays for the month of December and with a range of free family events in the city over the next few weekends, Limerick excels at Christmas time,” he added.As part of the Limerick sustainable transport scheme, members of the public may also avail of the bus services across the region to travel to the city centre.LEAP cards offer up to 30 per cent discount on regular fares, while the National Transport Authority has extended the city centre fare zone to encompass Ardnacrusha, Castleconnell and Clonlara meaning it is now cheaper to catch the bus into Limerick city from these areas.More business news here Print NewsBusinessLimerick City ‘park and stride’ scheme to provide free Christmas parkingBy Editor – December 4, 2017 5586 center_img Previous articleLimerick TD told of progress on laws to protect low hour contract workersNext articleImproved train journey times from Limerick Editor RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Advertisement Email WhatsApp Facebook Limerick City Christmas car parks now open to public €85 million European Bank investment boost for Limericklast_img read more

But this has not taken place due to lack of consensus among High Courts, he said.  He said that AIJS was mooted with the objecting of “infusing new blood in the judiciary”.The 14th Law Commission Report, submitted way back in 1958, had recommended the creation of AIJS, he said. He further informed that Article 312 was inserted in the Constitution by 42nd Amendment in 1976 to provide for AIJS. The 77tth and 116th Law Commission Reports have supported the idea.Even the Supreme Court, in the 1992 All India Judges Case, asked the Government why it was not implementing AIJS.”Still, this is not happening because of lack of political will”, he said.”Various High Courts have agreed. Some have agreed with changes. Few have not agreed, saying the control of HC over appointment of judges cannot be taken away”, added the Law Secretary.He opined that AIJS can solve the issue of piling up of vacancies in subordinate judiciary. At present the sanctioned strength is 24,064 against which 19,160 judges have been appointed. 4,900 vacancies are left unfilled, he shared the statistics.Last week, it was reported that the government is in the process of finalising a bill to establish an all-India judicial service to recruit officers for subordinate courts through an entrance test.A petition filed by All India Judges Association seeking to direct the Centre to check the feasibility of All India Judicial Service has pending in the Supreme Court since 2015. The HCs of Sikkim and Haryana and the state governments of Haryana, Mizoram, Sikkim and Tripura favoured constitution of AIJS. Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh are reportedly opposed to it.Five states suggested changes, with Bihar seeking major revisions and Chhattisgarh demanding that only 15% vacancies of additional district judges be filled through AIJS. Manipur, Odisha, Uttarakhand have also sought changes. Governments ofe Gujarat, UP, Assam, West Bengal, Telangana, Andhra, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Jharkhand and Goa are yet to respond to the proposal. HCs of Andhra, Maharashtra, Delhi, Gujarat, Karnataka, Kerala, MP, TN, Manipur, Bihar, Punjab and Haryana and Assam are not in its favour. The Calcutta HC has not responded, while HCs of Jharkahnd and Rajasthan are still examining the plan.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Review of modeling of losses and sources of relativistic electrons in the outer radiation belt II: Local acceleration and loss

Posted On May 9 2021 by

first_imgThis paper focuses on the modeling of local acceleration and loss processes in the outer radiation belt. We begin by reviewing the statistical properties of waves that violate the first and second adiabatic invariants, leading to the loss and acceleration of high energy electrons in the outer radiation belt. After a brief description of the most commonly accepted methodology for computing quasi-linear diffusion coefficients, we present pitch-angle scattering simulations by (i) plasmaspheric hiss, (ii) a combination of plasmaspheric hiss and electromagnetic ion cyclotron (EMIC) waves, (iii) chorus waves, and (iv) a combination of chorus and EMIC waves. Simulations of the local acceleration and loss processes show that statistically, the net effect of chorus waves is acceleration at MeV energies and loss at hundreds of keV energies. The combination of three-dimensional (3D) simulations of the local processes and radial transport show that the complexity of the behavior of the radiation belts is due to a number of competing processes of acceleration and loss, and depends on the dynamics of the plasmasphere, ring current, and solar wind conditions.last_img read more
