Last year, Chantiers de l’Atlantique signed a EUR 1.7 billion deal for the construction of the vessel quartet.FLOTLOG ships will be built by Chantiers de l’Atlantique and Naval Group in cooperation with Fincantieri which will provide technical assistance and deliver some parts of the hull.The double-hulled vessels will ultimately replace the French Navy’s current, single-hulled LSSs and will be deployed to support France’s blue-sea combat fleet commitment to Organisation for Joint Armament Co-operation (OCCAR).With the first vessel to be handed over by the end of 2022, deliveries will be completed by 2029.Vestdavit will supply two PLD-6000 A-frame davits for interception craft and a single PL-3600R davit for fast rescue per ship to ensure safety and crew comfort in missions worldwide in unforgiving seas.Photo: Vestdavit“This is a huge breakthrough for us following months of intense engineering work and ensures an eight-year collaboration with Chantiers de l’Atlantique on this very prestigious project,” Redouane Lahsen, Vestdavit project lead and area sales manager, said.Specifically, Vestdavit’s PLD-6000 type davit is designed specifically for the flexibility and speed needed by interception vessels and can handle everything from leisure craft to work boats. It has a load-bearing capacity of up to six tons and remains effective even beyond sea state 5.Thanks to Vestdavit’s modular design, the PLD-6000 can be equipped with a docking head and guiding arms and to handle unmanned surface vessels (USVs) or underwater autonomous vehicles (UAV’s) if required. Meanwhile, the PL-3600R davit is designed for fast rescue craft and has a safe working load of 3.6 tons. Fully equipped with shock absorbers, guiding arms and a self-tension system as standard, the PL-3600R ensures stability in conditions up to and including sea state 5.With the LSS-types expected to operate for 40 years, Vestdavit project lead Redouane Lahsen says that the shipyard’s selection criteria demanded launch-and-recovery systems that would be built to last and allow easy, low-cost maintenance.center_img View post tag: French Navy View post tag: LSS View post tag: Chantiers de l’Atlantiquelast_img read more

Diehard Car Buffs Brave Rains For Ocean City Corvette Show

Posted on by

first_imgAbout 240 Corvettes line the Ocean City Boardwalk for the car show Sunday in 2018. By Maddy VitaleConstant rains pelted the Ocean City Boardwalk. It left those who ogled Corvettes on display to don umbrellas.But the rains just beaded off the pristine, glossy, gleaming displays of cars that represent the best of American motors.Now in its 28th year, the event is organized and sponsored by Boardwalk Corvettes of Atlantic City. It is considered one of the top five Corvette shows in the country, organizers said.Corvette owner Ken Mattis, of Ocean City and Upper Gwynedd Townsip, Pa., checks out the engine in this late model Vette.Carrie Dickinson, co-chairwoman of the Boardwalk Corvettes, said there were 480 cars registered but the rains scared away some owners.“On a day like this, it is incredible we had this many people,” Dickinson said. “It is a huge event. It’s a lot of fun. We do it for people to have a great time with their cars and to raise money for charities.”Proceeds from registration fees benefit local charities, including the Ocean City Humane Society.This patriotic-themed Corvette really represents the All-American car.Jim Root, a Humane Society board member and volunteer, said no matter how much or how little money would be raised Sunday, the event is about bringing the community together to have a good time and donate to good causes.Corvettes lined the Boardwalk in an awesome display of America’s supercar between Sixth and 14th streets. There was a combination of new and vintage Vettes.Peggy and Ken Mattis, of Upper Gywnedd and Ocean City, stand by their 1999 C5 Corvette.Ken and Peggy Mattis, of Ocean City and Upper Gwynedd Township, Pa., drove their 1999 C5 Corvette to be in the show.“I grew up on Corvettes. They are fun to drive. The roof comes off your hair blows in the breeze,” Ken Mattis said.“It is fun to drive,” Peggy Mattis said with a smile.When asked if they had another Corvette, Ken Mattis said with a laugh, “One is enough for now.”Dean Ferraro, of Levittown Pa., admires this 2011 Corvette.But Dean Ferraro, of Levittown, Pa., enjoys the fact that he has two Vettes – a 1970 and a 2006.“My 1970 is one of the best years for Vettes,” Ferraro said. “They are just awesome cars.”Jeff Maher, of Linwood, and his daughter Charlie, 2, admired a 2006 Corvette. Maher said he and his family come to the show every year. He hopes he will be able to get his 1985 Corvette on the road and into the show by next year.Jeff Maher and his daughter, Charlie, 2, of Linwood, stop to admire this Corvette.Mike Boguszewski, of Washington Township, N.J., wore a Jeep hat. But it was no secret he loved the Corvettes that graced the Boardwalk.He and his daughter, Layla, 3, checked out some Vettes. “I like Vettes. I just wish it was a nicer day,” he said.And while the theme of this year’s show was “Endless Summer,” it seemed nothing of the sort, with temperatures in the 60s and continual rains.Despite the downpour, Deb Harris was happy to show off her bright red 2005 Vette.“We come every year,” Harris, of Lewes, Del., said of she and her husband, Rich. “This is an awful year because of the weather, but at least the proceeds go to a good cause.”Deb Harris, of Lewes, Del., with her 2005 Vette, is in the show every year.Mike Boguszewski, of Washington Township, N.J., with daughter, Layla, 3.This is a Corvette from the 1970s.last_img read more

Hometown basketball premieres on WRGY in Rangeley

Posted on by

first_imgRANGELEY – Live remote broadcasts of selected basketball games for the Rangeley Lakes Regional School Men’s Varsity and Lady Lakers have been added to the line up of WRGY this month, expanding the offerings of the region’s community radio station.Live broadcasts started on Friday, Dec. 7 and Saturday, Dec. 8 with the Lady Lakers’ opening games of the season, presented live from the Collins/Brackett Memorial Gymnasium in Rangeley. Two more games were aired on Dec. 10 and games will be announced live on WRGY as conditions permit.“Our play-by-play announcers have agreed to try and cover as many home games as possible, as well as considering some away games. Much of this will be governed by the logistics of their availability. This is great news for WRGY listeners who just cannot make it to the hometown gymnasium. Whether you’re in upstate New York or housebound in Oquossoc,” said Ernest Gurney, interim Station Manager at WRGY. “We are also planning on recording some of these games for repeat broadcast, since many of our listeners may not be able to listen to the game in real time. The announcers are exploring the logistics of airing some middle school games to make WRGY a community resource for all sorts of local sports.”The two announcers, Tom Danforth and Rod Smith bring years of basketball experience to the court. Local Rangeley folks will recognize Tom’s work as Physical Education Instructor and Coach, Rod brings his eye and skills courtside from years at Jay, where Rod graduated as a standout in Football and Basketball, as well as his skills as an assistant coach for the last two years in the Rangeley Rec. Flag Football program..“In just the first four games we have already received very complimentary feedback from listeners not only in the local listening range of our analog signal, but also fans of Rangeley sports across the nation, including Pennsylvania, New York and California who receive our live streaming signal from our website,” said Gurney.The programs are supported by Sarge’s Pub and Grub, Gurney said, as well as numerous community sponsors. The station is a low-watt, nonprofit community station that has transmitted from Saddleback Mountain since 2010. Broadcasting basketball games has been a goal of WRGY since it opened, Gurney said.“This has been a goal for WRGY since we started community radio,” he said, “and slowly, through individual donations and community support we have acquired the necessary equipment to make this leap. Folks can now listen to Hometown Basketball from Rangeley’s Community Radio in real time: play by play, shot by shot.”WRGY can be found on regular radio signal at 90.5 FM in limited areas. WRGY also streams its programming live around the world from its website wrgy.org. Just go to the home page and press the “play” button. Schedules of upcoming games will be announced on air in advance once confirmed, as well as announced on WRGY’s Facebook page.last_img read more

You Say You Want an Evolution?

Posted on by

first_img¹ OEM and ODM switches that ship with or will run SONiC in a production environment Reinvent your operating model with SONiCWhen it comes to the network operating system (NOS), there is a revolution underway. If you’re reading this blog there’s a good chance you’re a part of it—or ready to join. The traditional vertically integrated networking software stack has some inherent limitations, and it’s driving a fundamental shift in the approach to enterprise networking. And that revolution is driving an important evolution of open source enterprise networking, with Software for Open Networking in the Cloud—or SONiC.Since our announcement of the Enterprise SONiC Distribution by Dell Technologies earlier this year, we have continued to evolve this platform, improving the manageability and validation of SONiC on Dell platforms and achieving consistent API and CLI support for all features:Cables & optics qualificationPerformance & scale measurementsScale-out L2/L3 fabrics (VxLAN – EVPN Overlay)Scale-out L3 data center fabricsL2/L3 multicast top-of-rack/aggregationThe availability of a fully supported SONiC distribution with industry-leading manageability is exciting for our industry and for customers. SONiC, based on Linux with containerized microservices, was designed for cloud architecture from day one. The challenge has been to extend the benefits and flexibility of cloud to enterprise and service provider customers, who have unique requirements to integrate SONiC with their data center and network stacks. Enterprise SONiC Distribution by Dell Technologies provides the API, CLI and hardware configuration automation to create the bridge between these two worlds, and it unleashes rapid innovation and customer empowerment unlike anything we have seen in networking.Recently, I had the pleasure of participating in a SONiC industry roundtable, hosted by IDC’s Research Vice President, Datacenter Networks, Brad Casemore. We were joined by Microsoft’s Dave Maltz, VMware’s Pere Monclus and Comcast’s Yiu Lee to discuss the networking revolution that is underway, and how it’s driving the evolution and increasing adoption of SONiC. In fact, as Brad described, IDC is seeing growing demand for switches that ship with or will run SONiC, and forecasts a SONIC data center switch market that will reach $2 billion by 2024¹.Vive l’évolutionThe industry networking software stack traditionally has been vertically integrated with the hardware, along with proprietary management and telemetry features. While the integrated model provided management and support for enterprises and service provider customers, it had many limitations including a slow innovation cycle and limited flexibility to customize the software stack for different deployment options.  These limitations were significantly amplified with the transition to cloud and modern applications. Traditional networking was not designed to support an empowered developer community that requires self-serve provisioning, rapid development and implementation of features and automated application deployment.  The industry experimented with many network operating systems and open source community projects to resolve this disconnect, with mixed results—until now.SONiC has evolved into an industry software platform with a significant ecosystem and consistent growth in features and adoption. This is the result of deliberate design and investments to solve the root cause of the issues:SONiC is Linux-based NOS with a containerized architecture, which allows developers to leverage all the industry investment in bare metal automation, container management tools and lifecycle management. There is no need to develop separate tools for networking from the rest of the data center stack (compute and storage), as has been the case for traditional networks.Infrastructure managers, developers and site reliability engineering teams are able to use their familiar observability tools, dashboards and processes for networking immediately, and have direct integration with the rest of infrastructure, accelerating project timelines and improving availability dramatically.The cloud-native architecture of SONiC makes it possible to support different silicon and CPU options in many hardware form factors, which expands the use cases significantly to edge, SmartNICs, 5G, NVMe-oF appliances, etc.Additionally, the Enterprise SONiC Distribution by Dell Technologies includes support for API, CLI and hardware configuration for all the features, enabling seamless support for current data center and network deployments. Developers and infrastructure managers no longer have to choose between forward looking cloud architecture and optimization of current deployments with automation.This increasing maturity of SONiC means the time is right for adoption. In our roundtable discussion, Comcast’s Yiu Lee talked about how SONiC delivers the reliability and ease of day-in, day-out operation without additional investment in development resources, particularly as feature sets have become more mature and the SONiC community has gotten stronger.It is really exciting to be at this point in the development—in the evolution—of SONiC, and it will be great to experience the acceleration of innovation that is made possible by this new architecture.I encourage you to get some additional perspective on SONiC by watching the replay of the SONiC industry roundtable. In doing so, I think you’ll see that the time is right to evolve your network infrastructure.Related Links:Replay: SONiC Industry Roundtable Hosted by IDCDell Technologies and SONiC: Open Source Networking That Checks All the BoxesEnterprise SONiC Distribution by Dell Technologieslast_img read more

Anthropology professor instructs popular tap-dancing class

Posted on by

first_imgA world-renowned expert on human parenting and infancy with more than 130 published articles in medical, anthropology and psychology journals, professor of anthropology James McKenna boasts a special talent: tap dancing.McKenna, director of Notre Dame’s Mother-Baby Behavioral Sleep Laboratory, is a leading expert on “co-sleeping,” which involves conducting research on the benefits of mother and infant pairs sharing a bed together. However, when he is not knee-deep in his research, McKenna also teaches the Irish American tap class.“I tap danced pretty much all my life in one form or another,” McKenna said. “I started when I was two or three years old watching a Fred Astaire film in black and white in Boston.”McKenna said when he saw Fred Astaire dancing on the screen, his two-year old self ran to the two-foot wide hard wood space between the living room carpet and dining room carpet, looked at the television and “started tap dancing with perfect beats and rhythms and rolls.”“I just could do it,” he said. “I could always tap dance to any music that has a beat. I don’t know why, but it’s been a great joy and a wonderful thing to do. It’s like playing drums with your feet.”After this talent surfaced, McKenna said he pursued it further by taking more formal dance lessons. He taught tap for five years at Pomona College until he was recruited to be a faculty member at Notre Dame. When he arrived in the fall of 1997, McKenna said, he discovered the University did not have a dance department, so he worked on starting a tap class. After a year of preparation, McKenna taught his first tap class in the fall of 1998.Senior Allison Griffith, a current student in McKenna’s Irish American tap class, said she and her friends planned to take the class together. With majors in English and American studies, Griffith said she thought there was no better time than her senior year to try something new.“It is a blast,” she said. “At least for my friends and I, it’s what we look forward to for most of the week.”Initially unsure of what to expect when enrolling in the class, Griffith said she now knows how much time and practice goes into a tap dancing routine.“My expectation before was that it would be a class that people kind of trickled in and out of, and maybe they were just taking it for fun,” she said. “What I’m realizing is that tap is definitely a really difficult skill, and it takes a lot of time and practice to get down.”Previous students have written to McKenna saying they performed their tap dancing routine at their wedding reception with friends who were also in the class, he said. He said he believes the class remains meaningful for the students that take it.“I think Notre Dame students are usually very self-critical,” McKenna said. “There are very few classes where students are able to be non-judgemental of themselves, and to relax and be who they are without the kind of strain and struggles that all of us go through when you care about doing well.”The class has proven a less-traditional, yet still learning-focused environment, Griffith said. McKenna tells his students from the start that they will make mistakes, she said, but that it is okay because they are learning a completely new skill.“A lot of times at Notre Dame, we’re so fixated on making sure we do everything exactly right,” Griffith said. “A lot of us are afraid to make mistakes, and a lot of us are used to not failing — especially in a class setting. It’s very rare to have something to work towards that’s not a paper or an exam. We’re working towards a performance, and that’s really fun.”Griffith said everyone should consider taking the class, regardless of their dancing background.“I had not danced since like first grade,” she said. “Absolutely still take it. Probably a majority of the people in the class had never danced before, or did when they were really little.”A transformation occurs once students put on their tap shoes for the first time, McKenna said, and students should not be afraid to sign up for the class.“It is such a joyful exercise,” he said. “All your troubles blow out Washington Hall windows. It’s done in a very easy, relaxed manner. I have not had one single person — of all the people that have taken this class — that couldn’t do just fine.”The class will present its end-of-the-year recital Tuesday around 8 p.m. in South Dining Hall, McKenna said. It is free to students, and the class performs about six numbers.“It’s very raucous and joyful and really fun,” McKenna said. “These are students that never really saw a pair of tap shoes. I think they’ve all surprised themselves about how much they really learned.”McKenna said he thinks the class is so popular among seniors because they take it for no other reason than their personal satisfaction and joy in tap dancing as an activity.“It really becomes this really absolutely joyful, no-holds-barred experience for the kids, and they let themselves go in there,” he said. “It is one of their truly joyful, restful, self-assuring spaces at the University.”Tags: anthropology, Dance, Irish American tap class, McKenna, recital, tap dancinglast_img read more

Dear CFPB, here’s the reality of how regulations impact credit unions

Posted on by

first_imgPutting an end to remarks from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that its regulations are, in fact, helping credit unions, the Credit Union National Association published a detailed report that outlines exactly how the new rules have suffocated growth.CUNA is a national association that advocates on behalf of all of America’s credit unions, which are owned by more than 100 million consumer members.CFPB Director Richard Cordray has commonly gone on record to denounce doomsayers who say that new regulations are killing the banks, especially when it comes to credit unions and community lenders.In response, CUNA submitted a letter to the CFPB detailing each of the ways the agency’s rulemakings have affected America’s roughly 6,000 credit unions.The letter also includes recommendations on how the bureau can improve its regulations to provide relief to credit unions and their members.“We urge the bureau to take immediate action and implement our suggestions for the protection of credit union members, who have fewer choices and are incurring increased costs due to CFPB rules,” said Jim Nussle, CUNA president/CEO. “CUNA, our state league partners, and credit unions—the original consumer protectors—stand willing to provide the CFPB any further details or analysis necessary to achieve regulatory relief, the ultimate goal of our Campaign for Common-Sense Regulation.” continue reading » 16SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
