NASA Contributes to Helicopter Design

first_imgBy Dialogo September 10, 2013 NASA said that the Sea Knight CH-46 helicopter collision test was one of the most ambitious ones made at Langley Research Center (LaRC) in Hampton, Virginia. The cameras, which record 500 images per second, allowed researchers to figure out the way in which the fuselage would bend, brake or collapse on impact. NASA is collaborating with the U.S. Navy, Army and Federal Aviation Administration. In addition to improving security, engineers want to increase industrial knowledge and create more complete computer models that may be used to design better helicopters. NASA engineers dropped a helicopter’s fuselage from a height of 30 feet, as part of a project aimed at improving helicopter safety. The helicopter, loaded with three collision test dummies, was elevated 30 feet in the air and dropped to the ground at a speed of 30 miles per hour, while 40 high-speed cameras were recording the event that represented a severe, but not fatal, collision, according to engineers. The final goal is to contribute to the efficiency and speed of helicopters and other vertical launch vehicles, as well as making them quieter and less polluting.last_img read more

China to join UN arms trade treaty, ‘enhance’ world peace

first_imgTopics : China will join a global pact to regulate arms sales that has been rejected by the United States, with Beijing saying Monday it is committed to efforts to “enhance peace and stability” in the world.The Communist Party leadership’s top legislative body voted Saturday to adopt a decision on joining the UN Arms Trade Treaty that is designed to control the flow of weapons into conflict zones. It comes after US President Donald Trump announced plans last year to pull the United States out of the agreement — which entered into force in 2014. It is among a number of international agreements reached under the Obama administration that Trump has moved to pull out of.The treaty requires member countries to keep records of international transfers of weapons and to prohibit cross-border shipments that could be used in human rights violations or attacks on civilians.A study in January by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute said China is now the second largest arms producer in the world, behind the US.center_img Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told reporters that joining the treaty was “another important measure for China to support multilateralism”.He added that the country would make a “continuous effort to maintain and enhance peace and stability in the world and region”, and that China has “always strictly controlled the export of military products”.China only exports such products to sovereign countries and not to non-state actors, Zhao said at a regular briefing.The US Senate never ratified the 2013 Arms Trade Treaty after former president Barack Obama endorsed it, and Trump has said he would revoke his predecessor’s signature.last_img read more

Moody’s Reaffirms Panama Canal’s A2 Long-Term Rating

first_imgThe Panama Canal Authority’s (ACP) A2 long-term rating has been reaffirmed with a stable outlook, according to ratings agency Moody’s.The ACP’s strong financial performance has resulted in better than anticipated financial metrics, driven by the successful operations of the Expanded Panama Canal, the agency explained.Moody’s also noted the canal’s strong operating track record and robust growth after the expansion.“Once again the credit rating agency confirms the great operational and financial strength of the canal and recognizes that the robust institutional structure and governance continue to be key to the success of the Panama Canal Authority,” Francisco J. Miguez, Panama Canal Vice President of Finance, said.The credit rating agency said that the canal has demonstrated resiliency in times of economic downturn, highlighting that “despite macroeconomic factors, such as sluggish economic global performance, tariff disputes, and a low demand for raw materials in Latin America and Asia, that could negatively impact the canal’s operations, Moody’s estimates tonnage to continue increasing during 2019.”In August, Fitch Ratings affirmed the ACP A investment grade rating with a stable outlook for its long-term issuer default rating and its senior unsecured notes. In July, Standard & Poor’s (S&P) Global Ratings improved the canal’s outlook from stable to positive, and also affirmed its A- rating of the waterway.last_img read more

Ireland well aware of threat posed by Italy “great” Sergio Parisse

first_img Press Association “I think he makes people believe around him because he believes himself so much. “I suppose Brian O’Driscoll would have done that a lot for Ireland in the earlier days. “We’ve looked at him a lot during the week, we guessed he was going to be back and was going to do everything he could to be back. “He has everything. He catches high balls, he chases high balls, he chips, he can make turnovers on the ground, he intercepts, he’s a phenomenal carrier, if he has to go straight he has great footwork, he’s a brilliant passer, he pressurises the referee. He does it all. “He’s right up with any of the great players who have played the game.” Munster flyer Keith Earls has slotted from wing to centre for Sunday’s Italy clash, with club-mate Murray hailing the Limerick native’s resolve to fight back from a 29-month Test absence owing to a string of serious injuries. Murray and Earls starred together in St Munchin’s College’s first XV, before progressing into the Munster set-up. Scrum-half Murray said the depth of Earls’ talent was obvious from the outset. “He likes to say he pretty much won us the senior cup at school,” said Murray of Earls. “He’s a special talent and I think everyone in our group knows how lucky we are to have him. “He’s had a tough run of injuries and it’s been pretty tough on him over the last couple of seasons, but it’s no surprise to me because I know him so well to see him playing like this, but it’s great to see him doing what he does on the world stage. “In terms of his mental strength it’s incredible, that amount of time out of the game and watching those two Six Nations wins, that’s got to be tough on any player. “And to have the mental strength and durability to bounce back, it’s a long time out of the game and a lot of lonely hours with the physio. “He was obviously dreaming of this and he’s taken his chance incredibly well.” “Yes we do look at them completely differently when he’s in their team,” said Murray, when asked if Ireland must adapt to cope with Parisse’s threat. “We have to be very switched on to what he can do, but hopefully we know how to cover that. “Individually and collectively he will galvanise them, he’s a world-class player and we’ve seen him over the last few years what a good player he is and the threats he brings. “He’s an X-factor player, brings something out of nothing and can be a real magician for them. “So he’s pretty important for them.” Evergreen Munster lock O’Connell believes Parisse has the same kind of influence on Italy that Brian O’Driscoll used to exude over Ireland. ‘He’s right up there with the best,” said O’Connell. “I’ve sat with him after plenty of games because I’ve been captain and he’s been captain. He is a little bit like a Johnny Sexton, or a Sean O’Brien, or Jamie Heaslip. Ireland have a special plan to combat “magician” Sergio Parisse in Sunday’s vital World Cup clash against Italy, according to Conor Murray. Fit-again linchpin Parisse will transform the Azzurri, the Stade Francais talisman finally over the calf haematoma he had to have drained. Ireland captain Paul O’Connell believes Parisse “makes people around him believe”, and has warned his side not to underestimate the number eight’s influence at London’s Olympic Stadium. last_img read more

first_img Tags: Baldwinsvilleboys lacrosseC-NSliverpool Brendan Mancuso, Cade Clouthier and Kyle Caves each scored twice in the first quarter as Liverpool built an 8-1 advantage, and then really ended matters with 10 unanswered goals in the second period.Caves and Mancuso both finished with four goals, Caves adding three assists as Ryan McGowan got three goals and four assists. Jake Piseno had three goals and two assists, with Matt Jerman finding the net twice. Devin Dewane, Jacob Fahey, Ian Conroy, Aaron Clouthier and Ryan Earle each had one goal and one assist.That sets up a sectional semifinal between Liverpool and no. 2 seed West Genesee. These same teams had met last Tuesday, and the Warriors were in prime position until a poor third quarter messed up all of those plans and the Warriors lost, 13-9, to the Wildcats.A big second quarter helped Liverpool shake off a slow start and lead, 5-4, going into the break. But it turned around again in the third period, WG breaking out on offense in a 7-3 push that the hosts could not answer.McGowan notched four goals, with Conroy getting three goals. Caves had a goal and four assists, with Aaron Clouthier getting one goal and one assists. Dewane, Fahey and Piseno also had assists.C-NS had  needed back-to-back wins to qualify for the sectional playoffs, getting one of them last Monday against Binghamton as it rolled past the Patriots 24-8.So it all hinged on the Northstars beating Central Square a night later, and again C-NS pulled through, its offense overwhelming the Redhawks on the way to a 20-7 victory.Erasing any doubts early, C-NS bolted to an 8-0 advantage by the end of the first quarter, and nursed that margin until the second half, when it pulled further away, helped by Anthony Cimino earning a career-best seven assists.Joel Firth scored five times, with Pickard getting three goals.
