Top Canadian authors coming to Niagara for Two Days of Canada conference

Award-winning authors from across Canada will be in downtown St. Catharines this week for the annual Two Days of Canada conference and the new Festival of Readers.Two Days of Canada is an annual conference hosted by Brock University’s Centre for Canadian Studies. The conference turns 30 this year, making it the longest-running Canadian Studies conference series in the country.This year’s theme is Concepts of Vancouver, which looks at Vancouver’s “unique confluence of art, politics, and cultural policy,” says Brock English professor Gregory Betts, who is a conference co-organizer. Brock PhD students Julia Polyck-O’Neill and Andrew McEwan, whose dissertations examine Vancouver’s arts and authors, are assisting in organizing the conference.More than 100 delegates from across Canada and around the world will listen to 40 presenters explore such topics as Indigenous rights in Vancouver and its region, that area’s unique openness to experimentation in the arts, and how Vancouver uses its class-consciousness to build inclusive urban communities.The conference and accompanying festival will feature authors who have won such prestigious awards as the Governor-General’s Award, the Griffin Prize and the Trillium Prize. Two poet laureates will also be in attendance.The keynote speaker for the event is George Bowering, the former Niagara resident who was Canada’s first Parliamentary Poet Laureate, and a two-time Governor-General’s Award winner. Since leaving Niagara, Bowering has lived mostly in Vancouver, where he has cultivated a world-class literary culture and become, as Betts says, “one of the giants of Canadian literature.”Authors Richard Cavell, Roy Miki, Lisa Robertson, Michael Turner and Rita Wong will also deliver plenary addresses.This year also sees the addition of the Festival of Readers to the conference, where award-winning authors will present their academic scholarship during conference sessions and share their literary work in the evenings.Festival of Readers events run from Thursday, Oct. 13 to Saturday, Oct. 15 and include a public lecture by Bowering, a poetry reading and poetry slam, and a story illustration workshop by Rodman Hall.Gary Barwin, who is on the 2016 Scotiabank Giller Prize shortlist, will be speaking at St. Catharines Public Library as part of the festival.There will also be a special screening of “Hard Core logo” at The Film House, with an introduction by the author Michael Turner.A complete guide can be found at http://www.festivalofreaders.com/the-festival-of-readers.Festival of Readers events are free and open to the public.Two Days of Canada: The Concept of Vancouver is being held at Brock University’s Marilyn I.

Ohio State looking to hold off Michigan in Big Ten Championship finale

The Bill and Mae McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion played host to the men’s swimming and diving Big Ten Championships and OSU swimmers gave the home crowd something to cheer about on Friday.“I’ve never experienced a night like this as a coach,” coach Bill Wadley said. To find a better night in Ohio State swimming history, one would have to go back at least 50 years, Wadley said.Coming into Friday night, the Buckeyes were tied with Michigan, but by the end of the night things changed. The Buckeyes started the night off with a bang, and kept it going, wrapping up Friday’s action in first place.In the 200-yard freestyle relay, OSU was able to bring home the gold and take sole possession of the lead. The relay was made up of Joel Elber, Andrew Olson, Lincoln Fahrbach and Tim Phillips.“It’s a really good momentum builder,” Olson said.The Buckeyes lost their lead for a moment, but the Buckeyes stayed positive.In the next event, sophomore Austin Mudd placed fifth in the 400-yard individual medley while teammate Justin Farra took place sixth in the same event. Both swimmers were able to improve from their morning swim.The next event was a battle of OSU against Michigan. Both teams had three swimmers in the 100-yard butterfly. OSU performed well, but Michigan was able to outscore the Buckeyes.Even though the Buckeyes were outscored, the team was happy about the finishes by all three swimmers. Phillips finished second, Quincy Lee finished fifth and Fahrbach finished in seventh.In the 100-yard breaststroke, the Buckeyes came close to a sweep. OSU was able to finish in first, second and fourth place. Junior Elliott Keefer was able to bring home the gold for OSU while senior Sam Pelkey brought home the silver. Senior Dani Malnik was just one tenth of a second from tying for third. She placed fourth.In that same event, Michigan had only one person in the top eight.OSU finished the night off with a bang. Sophomore Andrew Elliott placed first in the 100-yard backstroke.By the end of the swimming portion of the meet on Friday, the Buckeyes had 592.5 points to take over first place. Michigan checked in second with 512.5 points.The Buckeyes may have the lead but a Big Ten Championship is not in the bag.The Buckeyes will be in the pool Saturday to try to fend off Michigan and bring home a Big Ten Championship. read more

CDE washing plant operating at South Australian silica sand operation

first_imgThe privately owned Tooperang silica sand mine has announced the completion of a silica sand washing plant at a new site near Adelaide, South Australia. The plant has been supplied by CDE and is producing glass sands for use by Owens-Illinois (O-I) at its glass bottle manufacturing plant in Adelaide. The new turnkey plant includes a range of equipment from the CDE product portfolio including the M2500 with integrated Counter Flow Classification Unit (CFCU), EvoWash fines recovery system, fine sand screens, attrition cells and spirals. The plant configuration also includes an AquaCycle thickener which reduces the volume of fresh water required to feed the washing plant by more than 90%.The design feed rate to the plant is 100 t/h and this produces 50 t/h of glass sand with an additional 30 t/h of concrete sand. The plant accepts -120 mm feed to the M2500 hopper and this material is then transferred to the integrated ProGrade double deck rinsing screen. The top deck removes the 40-120 mm material to a stockpile while the bottom deck sends the 7-40 mm material to another stockpile. The 0-7 mm material collects in the ProGrade sump and is then pumped to a five deck fines screen. At this point the silica sand is screened at 0.43 mm and the 0.43 mm to 7 mm material is sent to a separate EvoWash sand washing plant to allow for the production of concrete sand. Meanwhile, the 0-0.43 mm material is sent to an EvoWash fines recovery plant where following delivery to the EvoWash sump the material is then pumped to the integrated hydrocyclone which removes the -63 μm material. The cyclone overflow containing the waste material is then sent to the AquaCycle thickener.The underflow from the cyclone is delivered to the EvoWash dewatering screen before being transferred to the attrition cells. The function of the attrition cells is to assist with the removal of iron oxide and other deleterious materials from the silica sand. The iron oxide is adhered to the silica particles and must be scrubbed from the surface of the particles to allow removal later in the process. Refractory heavy minerals and iron oxide particles are then separated from the silica sand through the introduction of spiral classifiers. As these particles have a higher specific gravity than the silica sand particles, the spirals are able to perform the required separation. The rejects from the spirals – a sand product containing the liberated heavy mineral and iron oxide – is delivered to the EvoWash sand washing plant sump and is destined for the concrete sand product. The silica sand slurry is delivered to the sand sump on the M2500 where it is then pumped to the integrated counter flow classification unit (CFCU).The CFCU unit is used to remove the <106 μm particles from the sand as required by the specification.  The CFCU is an upward flow classifying unit which operates on the principle that an upward flow of water will cause the lighter particles to rise and the heavier particles to sink. This facilitates the removal of any remaining fines while the silica sand slurry is then delivered to a dewatering screen. The dewatered silica sand is transferred via an integrated stockpile conveyor.  The fine material removed in the CFCU was sent to the concrete sand Evowash for recovery into the concrete product.From an initial iron oxide (Fe2O3) content in the feed of 0.3% the glass sand is required to achieve 0.25% Fe2O3 in line with O-I’s sand specification for coloured glass.  The final product has less than 0.1% iron oxide. The Fe2O3 content in the final silica sand product is reduced to 0.1% ensuring that it meets the specification required by O-I at their Adelaide plant. “We are achieving the 0.1% figure consistently which is as important as achieving the reduction in the iron content” explains Chris McKeown, CDE Project Manager. Both the dewatered silica sand and concrete sands are subsequently stockpiled using 26 m radial conveyors which ensure a stockpile capacity of 5,000 t. From an initial silica content of 93% for the excavated material the final product achieves +99% silica. Waste water from the plant is processed by the AquaCycle thickener which recovers 90% of the water for re-circulation around the washing plant. The plant requires 400 m3 per hour of water for its operation and the introduction of the AquaCycle ensures that the top up water supply is only 40 m3/h. The sludge from the AquaCycle thickener is pumped to on-site settling ponds.The glass sands produced by Tooperang will be used at O-I’s Adelaide plant in West Croydon which produces mainly wine bottles to supply Australia’s renowned wine industry. O-I’s Adelaide plant is one of four Australian O-I facilities. Across its four production plants O-I employs around 900 people and produces almost 860,000 packed tonnes of glass products or around 3.4 billion containers each year. Following successful completion of the project CDE have obtained Preferred Supplier Satus with O-I to support future sand processing requirements. O-I Procurement Director, David Abela said “The achievement of a consistent sand specification at Tooperang Quarry in accordance with our requirements, proves CDE’s silica sand processing capabilities. CDE also delivered the project in a very professional manner through its Project Management system and it is for this reason that we will continue to work with CDE to investigate glass sand supply opportunities in other parts of Australia.”last_img read more

Mazda Recalls 65000 Cars Over Spiders in Gas Tanks

first_imgYou gotta give it to Mazda–when it does a recall, it does it in style. None of the fuel leak or brake line nonsense. Nope, when Mazda recalls a cars, it does it because of spiders. Spiders! The Japanese car maker is recalling more than 65,000 cars over concerns that spider have spun webs in car vents. The recall includes 50,000 cars in the States and 15,000 in Canada, Mexico, and Puerto Rico.The presence of the webs could clog the fuel tank’s vent, leading to fire. Mazda said that it hasn’t actually received any reports of accidents caused by the webs, but it has found more than 20 tanks with webs in them.The recall affects 2009 model Mazda6s. The car maker has no idea why the arachnids are targeting that model specifically. I mean, who wouldn’t be interested in such an affordable mid-sized vehicle?last_img read more

McGinness will serve as CEO of the new company.McGinness hopes to expand the brand’s reach by licensing its “characters” into television and film.He was not immediately available for comment Monday.”The Weekly World News is a powerful brand in publishing, entertainment and online,” McGinness said in the release announcing the deal. “The Weekly World News brand and its characters have inspired musicals, books, feature film projects and television shows over the years. We see tremendous potential for growing the brand and significantly expanding the business.”Circulation for the publication had fallen below 90,000 before AMI pulled the plug.The Boca Raton-based publisher of Shape and Men’s Fitness, like many others, has had trouble maintaining steady newsstand circulation and advertising revenue across its titles.AMI, which was acquired in 1999 by David Pecker, was said to be close to a sale to earlier this year to Source Interlink but a deal never materialized. “MAGAZINE FOUND ALIVE!”American Media Inc. has sold its defunct Weekly World News, the supermarket tabloid known for its sensational covers, to a group of New York investors, the company announced late Saturday.Terms of the deal were not disclosed.AMI shuttered the publication last August. last_img read more

As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

Porsche collects loads of fourfigure deposits for Taycan EV

first_img 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo in the real world 0 Porsche More From Roadshow Electric Cars Sports Cars Future Cars Tags Share your voice 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything bettercenter_img Post a comment We already knew Porsche planned to double output of its upcoming Taycan EV in the first year of production, thanks to overwhelming demand. Now, we have a more tangible idea of that demand, and it’s impressive.Porsche on Friday announced that it has identified more than 20,000 “people around the world with serious interest in” the Taycan. Now, before you cast this off by saying that anybody can put their name on a sheet, bear in mind that in Europe, Porsche was asking for a down payment of 2,500 euros (about $2,800). It might not be the same price for every market, but it shows people are willing to put their money where their mouths are.”The overwhelming interest in the Taycan shows us that our customers and fans are just as excited about the first Porsche electric athlete as we are — and we’ve therefore increased our production capacities,” said Detlev von Platen, Porsche’s board member for sales and marketing, in a statement.Porsche had initially planned to build 20,000 Taycans in its first year. Overwhelming demand for this Teutonic electric sports car forced the company’s hand, however, and it confirmed in January that it intended to double that production capacity to 40,000 units. It’ll be built in the same Zuffenhausen facility that also makes the 911, as well as the 718 twins.The Porsche Taycan is going to be pretty boss. Porsche estimates a 0-to-60-mph time of 3.5 seconds and a starting price between the Cayenne and Panamera, which would put it around $75,000. Its 350-kW, 800-volt charging system should add 185 miles of range in about 9 minutes, and it even has a charging agreement with Electrify America, one of the few EV infrastructure companies building chargers capable of these speeds. Its production form will be revealed before the end of the year. 53 Photos 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value More about 2019 Porsche 718 Cayman T Coupe Preview • 2019 Porsche 718 Cayman T first drive: Brilliant, but bittersweet Porschelast_img read more

Dunleavy selects Corri Feige as natural resources commissioner

first_imgCorri Feige (left) in her previous role as head of the state Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Oil and Gas, reading out bids during the state’s annual North Slope lease sale. Feige will lead the Department of Natural Resources under Gov.-elect Mike Dunleavy. (Photo by Rachel Waldholz/Alaska’s Energy Desk)Gov.-elect Mike Dunleavy today announced a key member of his cabinet: Corri Feige will be Alaska’s next natural resources commissioner.Dunleavy made the announcement at an industry conference in Anchorage.“We’ve had great conversations with her; very intelligent, very knowledgeable, pretty much in line with where we want to go as a state, and that’s creating jobs, creating opportunities,” Dunleavy told reporters after the announcement.Feige is not new to the agency she will now lead. She was previously the head of the Alaska Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Oil and Gas under Gov. Bill Walker. But she resigned in 2016 during a dispute between the Walker administration and oil companies over marketing North Slope gas.Feige is a geophysicist and engineer by training and has previously worked for smaller independent oil and mining companies in Alaska. She is married to Eric Feige, a former Republican state representative.In her new role, Feige will help steer the Dunleavy administration’s policies on issues including the natural gas pipeline project and the proposed Pebble Mine. Feige will also be a central voice in Alaska’s relationship with the Trump administration as it pushes for more oil development on the state’s federal lands and waters, including in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.The governor-elect also made a policy announcement: Dunleavy said he wants to freeze all new regulations across all state departments and will attempt to retroactively freeze any regulations put forth by the Walker administration after Election Day.Dunleavy said he is doing this to “assess whether they are needed or will hurt the economy.”In response, Austin Baird, a spokesman for Gov. Walker, said he didn’t believe this would result in any significant changes, as “there is no plan to implement new regulations that would restrict resource development in any way,” Baird said in an email.“The Governor-elect is effectively asking the Walker Administration to continue the work we’ve been doing for the past four years,” Baird said.last_img read more

Trump praises Xi as powerful representative of people

first_imgU.S. President Donald Trump and China`s President Xi Jinping arrive at a state dinner at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. ReutersUS President Donald Trump praised Chinese leader Xi Jinping as a “highly respected and powerful representative of his people” on Friday as he wrapped up his first state visit to Beijing.Trump showered his host with accolades during two days of meetings during which the US leader sought to convince Xi to do more to reduce a trade deficit with China and rein in nuclear-armed North Korea.“My meetings with President Xi Jinping were very productive on both trade and the subject of North Korea,” the US leader wrote on Twitter before flying to Vietnam for an Asia-Pacific summit.“He is a highly respected and powerful representative of his people. It was great being with him and Madame Peng Liyuan!” he said, referring to Xi’s wife.Trump has repeatedly congratulated Xi for his reappointment as head of the Communist Party at a congress last month where he consolidated power-raising eyebrows over the admiration of a non-democratic process.US and Chinese firms signed more than $250 billion in business deals during Trump’s visit, though analysts say many were nonbinding agreements that could take years to show any results and would do little to reduce the US-China trade imbalance.Trump, who has softened his past criticism of China, again lambasted past US administrations for allowing the $350 billion trade deficit to balloon over the years.“I don’t blame China, I blame the incompetence of past Admins for allowing China to take advantage of the US on trade leading up to a point where the US is losing $100’s of billions,” he wrote as he again circumvented China’s Twitter ban.“How can you blame China for taking advantage of people that had no clue? I would’ve done same!”China was the showpiece of Trump’s five-nation tour of Asia, which ends on Monday.During their talks on Thursday, Trump thanked Xi for his backing of United Nations sanctions on Pyongyang and China’s own restrictions on banking for North Koreans.While Xi said China was committed to the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula, he did not announce any new steps to squeeze the reclusive regime.‘Very special man’ -Xi and Trump have struck up a friendship since their first meeting at the former real estate tycoon’s Mar-a-Lago resort in April.Xi treated Trump to a lavish “state visit-plus” that included a private tour of the Forbidden City, a military honour guard and a banquet.The US leader called his host a “very special man” and showed him a video of his granddaughter singing ballads in Mandarin. The two men will be in the same room again at the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation in the Vietnamese resort of Danang.First Lady Melania Trump did not join the president for the rest of his Asian tour, staying in Beijing on Friday to continue the US charm offensive. She will see pandas and visit the Great Wall.“Melania is staying behind to see the zoo, and of course, the Great WALL of China before going to Alaska to greet our AMAZING troops,” Trump tweeted.Trump, who wants to build his own massive wall along the US-Mexico border to stem illegal immigration, did not visit the Great Wall-a usual stop for US presidents.Chinese state-run media hailed the positive tone of the state visit, though the China Daily said in an editorial that “the differences that had been pestering bilateral ties have not instantly disappeared”.last_img

Seethroughwall surveillance with WiFi shown at UCL

first_img More information: Through-the-Wall Sensing of Personnel Using Passive Bistatic WiFi Radar at Standoff Distances, IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, vol. 50, issue 4, pp. 1218-1226, DOI:10.1109/TGRS.2011.2164411ABSTRACTIn this paper, we investigate the feasibility of uncooperatively and covertly detecting people moving behind walls using passive bistatic WiFi radar at standoff distances. A series of experiments was conducted which involved personnel targets moving inside a building within the coverage area of a WiFi access point. These targets were monitored from outside the building using a 2.4-GHz passive multistatic receiver, and the data were processed offline to yield range and Doppler information. The results presented show the first through-the-wall (TTW) detections of moving personnel using passive WiFi radar. The measured Doppler shifts agree with those predicted by bistatic theory. Further analysis of the data revealed that the system is limited by the signal-to-interference ratio (SIR), and not the signal-to-noise ratio. We have also shown that a new interference suppression technique based on the CLEAN algorithm can improve the SIR by approximately 19 dB. These encouraging initial findings demonstrate the potential for using passive WiFi radar as a low-cost TTW detection sensor with widespread applicability.via Popsci, Extremetech This document is subject to copyright.

(Phys.org) — A surveillance device that uses WiFi radio waves has been devised to see through walls to detect, in military and surveillance parlance, moving personnel targets. The device serves as a radar prototype designed by two UK scientists at the University College London (UCL). The scientists devised the radar prototype as a way to track Wi-Fi signals in order to spy through walls. Their device identifies frequency changes to detect the moving objects. An important feature of their work is that since the device itself does not emit radio waves, it cannot be detected; it operates in stealth. © 2012 Phys.org Explore furthercenter_img Researchers develop “rectenna” to convert radio waves to electricity Citation: See-through-wall surveillance with WiFi shown at UCL (2012, August 3) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-08-see-through-wall-surveillance-wifi-shown-ucl.html Karl Woodbridge and Kevin Chetty, researchers at University College London, designed their detector to be able to use these signals. Chetty is a lecturer in the Department of Security and Crime Science at University College London; Woodbridge is with the school’s Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering. The two demonstrate what is called a “passive radar system” that can see through walls using WiFi signals generated by wireless routers and access points. “Passive” radar systems detect and track objects by processing reflections from “non-cooperative” sources of illumination in the environment, such as commercial broadcast and communications signals.The scientists’ paper, “Through-the-Wall Sensing of Personnel Using Passive Bistatic WiFi Radar at Standoff Distances” coauthored with G.E. Smith, appeared in the April issue of Geoscience and Remote Sensing, IEEE Transactions. The prototype is about the size of a suitcase and it carries two antennae and signal processing unit, to monitor baseline WiFi frequency in an area for any change that would indicate movement. The device in tests successfully determined a person’s location, speed and direction through a brick wall that was one-foot-thick. See Through The Wall (STTW) technologies are of great interest to law enforcement and military agencies; this particular device has the UK Military of Defense exploring whether it might be used in “urban warfare,” for scanning buildings. Other more benign applications might range from monitoring children to monitoring the elderly. According to Woodbridge, some challenges remain which he and others involved in the research will attempt to resolve. The UCL team hopes to raise system sensitivity so that their system can pick up and detect not only people who are moving but also people who are standing or sitting still. The device, he said, may be made to be sensitive enough to pick up on subtle motions that the ribcage makes in breathing in and out.Wi-Fi radio signals are found in homes worldwide. Strategy Analytics, a market intelligence company, found in its recent study that 439 million households by the end of 2011 worldwide had WiFi network setups, or about 25 percent of all households. The same report predicts that the worldwide number of Wi-Fi households will reach nearly 800 million in 2016, a penetration rate of 42 percent.last_img read more

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.

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 Computed Tomography (CT) | January 08, 2016 RSNA Technology Report 2015: Computed Tomography Contributing Editor Greg Freiherr offers an overview of computed tomography (CT) advances at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2015.

She spoke on the theme of diversity and how to break down the barriers between various minorities, male-female, religion, national origin, etc. She gave many photo examples of how we pigeon hole people into neat categories and that we often say we have equally in society, however her images showed recent images of big political summits where there are no women present, or they were the secretaries in the background. She said in medical practice, department administration and collaboration on projects, people need to be cognoscente of bias they have engrained by culture for which they may not even be aware.She showed a slide of the AAPM membership makeup by generation and said members need to keep in mind the way each generation thinks and communicates varies by their generation’s life experience and upbringing. McCollough said understanding these differences can help bridge perceived gaps in communication. Find more news and videos from AAPM.
