Taylor worked in the department up until his death.Craig said Taylor never missed a day of work, even  coming in Tuesdays after receiving chemotherapy Mondays. Taylor’s work ethic and commitment to others highlighted his four years as a walk-on reciever for the Horned Frog football team, friends said.

OIT works on CIF system after Dec. crash

first_imgThe University’s Course Instructor Feedback (CIF) system experienced problems at the end of last semester, resulting in the entire student body receiving their grades at the earliest time, Erin Hoffmann Harding, associate vice president for Strategic Planning, said. “For a period of about three hours on the last night of the CIF window for most undergraduate courses, the OIT server supporting the CIF system experienced a slow down in performance,” Hoffmann Harding said. “The system never crashed, almost 1,000 surveys were successfully submitted during this time and no information was lost.” Some students who tried to access the system could not complete their CIFs, she said. Beginning during the 2009 fall semester, completing CIFs allowed students to view their semester grades seven days early. “The system slow down prevented some students from successfully submitting their CIFs,” she said. “Unfortunately, it was not possible to reopen the survey system prior to the beginning of final exams. It was also not feasible to identify which students had been affected by the slowed performance.” Administrators decided to modify the grade holding policy for the fall semester only, Hoffmann Harding said. OIT is investigating the system problems, and the early grade incentive will exist again in the spring. Hoffmann Harding said the CIF system is still in development, and the next priority is to solve the performance speed. “The system will also soon have the ability to provide more customized information to students in e-mails about which CIFs they still need to complete and when their individual survey windows close,” she said. “We welcome suggestions about other enhancements that would improve students’ ability to offer feedback to their professors.” The response rate was 78 percent for all of the fall 2010 courses, she said. This rate was lower than fall 2009, but exceeded the response rate for fall 2008. Dennis Jacobs, vice president and associate provost, said feedback from CIFs is integrated into the classroom through feedback given directly to departments and faculty. “Instructors are provided with a detailed summary report of the CIF data collected for every course section they teach,” Jacobs said. “For each CIF item, the instructor can see the distribution of student responses, a calculated mean score, and a comparison to the scores received by other faculty who teach similar courses at Notre Dame.” Professors also see the open-ended answers, but they cannot see student names, he said. This allows for anonymity. “Many faculty members reflect on thoughtful CIF feedback from their students as they consider ways to improve their teaching in future semesters,” he said. Past improvements to CIFs have provided more incentive for students to complete them, Jacobs said. “Five of the questions appearing on the CIF were written together by students and faculty with the purpose of providing more information at the time of course selection,” he said. “The results to these five items are displayed within Class Search on the Registrar’s website.” Only students who have completed their CIFs the previous semester can view these results, Jacobs said. “This enhancement to Class Search along with gaining earlier access to grades provide two valuable incentives for students to complete all their CIFs,” he said.last_img read more

Gateway boys making a name as WPIAL powerhouse

first_imgby Malik VincentFor New Pittsburgh CourierEven though Section 2 of the WPIAL Class AAAA conference is filledwith some of the region’s best athletic talent, Gateway, an undefeated 6-0, refuse to sell themselves short in any way.With three players that are 6-foot-5 and taller, the Gateway boys basketball team features one of Western  PA’s tallest starting lineups.Similar to the Boston Celtics–before Rajon Rondo pushed himself into the equation–Gateway has a trio of players that they refer to as their ‘big three’.It is made up of 6-foot-7 senior Devon Cottrell and three-year junior letter-winners in swingman Tyler Scott (6-foot-6) as well as big man Barnett Harris (6-foot-10).“You can rely on the fact that two of the big three is always going to be on the court for us,” Gateway coach Mitch Adams said.That type of star-power helped Gateway to knock off St. Vincent-St. Mary’s prep out of Akron, Ohio, the school that produced the Miami Heat superstar and NBA icon, LeBron James, 62-55, at the Battle of the Borders tournament that was hosted by the Gators.“It felt like just another game on the schedule,” Adams said. “It didn’t feel much different than any other win. We have to do what we have to do, each and every game.”They’ve already defeated section rivals Penn Hills and Woodland Hills.“One thing that those two have in common is that they’re both very athletic,” Adams said. “What’s going to determine the outcome of this is focus and consistency. We’ve got to stay focused for the 30 games that we’ll, hopefully, play this year.”According to Scott, Cottrell can be compared to the New York Knicks stud Amare Stoudamire with his ability to score in many ways, rebound, and block shots in the paint.“He’s a huge asset to our team,” Scott said.Cottrell’s coach mentioned that he joined the Gateway program in the 7th grade as a ball boy, and has been a part of it since.“He’s like a son to me,” Adams added.Similarly each of the ‘big three’ have garnered a diverse amount of attention from Division-I programs.  St. Peters and Tennessee-Martin have placed official scholarships on the table for Cottrell. Robert Morris, Loyola-Maryland, Chicago, and Tennessee-Chattanooga are also displaying interest.Scott also described fellow star, Harris, as a big man who can handle the ball, see the court, and also work well in the post and can “dominate a game at will.”Harris and Scott, as juniors, have gotten official scholarship offers from Duquesne. Tyler’s father, Rod, played at Duquesne from 1979-82.Scott could be one of the WPIAL’s best scorers. He averaged 15.5 points per game as a sophomore and has already registered multiple 20 point games so far this season. With that, he gets a lot of attention, but not always the kind he wants.“There have been times when defenses have recognized how hard it is to match up with us,” Scott said. “They get frustrated quickly. We recently held Norwin to 47 points and they weren’t too happy about that. I once went up for a dunk, an alley-oop, against them and I got upper-cutted right before I got to the rim. It’s very frustrating sometimes.”Scott also has interest from Kent State, Cleveland State, Tennessee-Chattanooga, and Detroit. (Malik Vincent can be reached at [email protected])last_img read more

Leaf killer Scott Morriseau sinks Nelson in OT, Rebels one game away from advancing to Murdoch Final

first_imgBy Bruce Fuhr, The Nelson DailyMan that’s playoff hockey — not!In a game that most definitely had coaches Frank Maida and Steve Junker searching the trainer’s room for bottles of Alka-Seltzer to help cure strong cases of acid indigestion, the Castlegar Rebels somehow managed to pull out a 7-6 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League overtime victory Tuesday night at the NDCC Arena.Scott Morriseau, scoring his sixth of the series, won the game in the final minutes of the first overtime period.“I don’t know about that one,” Morriseau responded when asked about if he’s the newest Leaf killer, “but things are definitely going my way right now.”Morriseau deflected a Riley Henderson point shot past a surprised Andrew Walton to give the Rebels a commanding 3-1 lead in the Murdoch Division semi final.Castlegar can eliminate the Leafs from the post-season and advance down the playoff trail against the winner of the Beaver Valley/Spokane series with a win Thursday in the Sunflower City.“I just decided to go straight to the net and luckily the puck went off my stick and into the net,” said Morriseau, describing the game-winner at the 8:55 mark of overtime.The contest did not go according to textbook for both teams.Two teams that combined for 17 goals in three games — only three in game two— scored nine in the opening 20 minutes Tuesday. After building a 2-0 lead on goals by Brendan Heinrich and Stuart Walton 39 seconds apart, the teams traded volleys until Nick Newman finished off the scoring in the final minute of the frame.“We’re not a team that gives up that many goals, especially in the first period,” Morriseau said. “Obviously we talked about that and we have to bare down to next game.”Despite struggling with defensive zone coverage the Leafs battled back — tying the game on a goal by Patrick Martens with 35 seconds remaining in the third period —  and had two or three chances to win the game in the extra period.Nelson now must win three straight games to avoid being eliminated in the first round for the second straight year.“It’s depressing,” said Leaf forward Colton Schell“Everyone is taking it hard in the dressing room. We really needed this game.”The game was a career night for Castlegar rookie Brendan Heinrich, who finished the game with two goals and three assists.Morriseau added had four points while Henderson, Tyler Robinson, Connor Bowen also scored for Castlegar.Max Mois, having a bounce-back game as he continually pounded the Castlegar defence with several crushing bodychecks, Matthew Naka, J.J. Beitel and Carsen Willans, scoring his first career playoff goal, completed the Nelson scoring.Nelson out shot Castlegar by a 44-32 count, including an 18-4 margin in the third period.“It seems (Castlegar) is a way more energized on the bench then we are . . . everyone yelling after big hits, goal or back check,” Schell explained. “Our guys are a lot more quiet . . . we don’t have that many leaders on our team.”Game time Thursday is 7:30 p.m.GAME NOTES: One of the leaders not in the game Schell was talking about was team captain, Tyler Parfeniuk, who along with Walker Sidoni, missed the game due to sickness. Parfeniuk is hopeful to be back in the lineup for game five Thursday while Sidoni is most likely done for the playoffs. . . .The loss of Parfeniuk and Sidoni forced forward Cameron Dobransky back to the blue line core and allowed James Sorrey his first taste of the playoffs after being scratched from the first three games of the series. . . .Aaron Brewer left game in second period after taking a hit by Dallon Stoddart behind Castlegar net. . . .Nelson survived a two-man disadvantage in the second period. . . .Nelson lost the services of Nick Newman five minutes into the third after being checked to into the boards by Braydon Horcoff, who was given a five-minute major. Newman did return after being attended by the Leaf training staff. . . .Branden Amatto stopped 49 of 51 shots to lead the Spokane Braves to a 3-2 win over Beaver Valley Nitehawks. The Hawks lead the series 3-1 and can eliminate the Braves Thursday in [email protected]last_img read more

Dutch Firm Announces a New Kind of Wind Turbine

first_imgA Dutch company says it has developed a new type of residential wind turbine that is far quieter and more efficient than conventional designs.The Liam F1 is a horizontal-axis turbine that uses a revolving collector in the shape of a nautilus seashell, rather than blades, to spin a generator.The company behind the project is The Archimedes, which takes its name from the Greek mathematician credited with inventing a nautilus-like device for pumping water now called the Archimedes Screw.According to the company’s website, the turbine can operate in wind speeds of between 4.5 and 78 miles per hour (from 2 to 35 meters per second).It wasn’t clear from the company’s website what the rated capacity of the turbine is (it’s written mostly in Dutch), and the company didn’t respond to an e-mail seeking more information. But the website EnergyMatters.com reported that with an average wind speed of 11 mph, the turbine would produce between 1,180 and 1,500 kilowatt-hours of electricity per year.The company claims the 5-foot-diameter device turns with very little resistance and is “virtually silent.” A noise rating for the turbine wasn’t apparent at the website.The website Gizmodo.com said the turbines would be priced at $5,400. Their availability in North America isn’t known. Water turbines operating on the same principleThe Dutch firm may be unique in manufacturing a wind turbine with an Archimedes screw, but a company called New England Hydropower Company LLC builds and installs hydroelectric turbines of a similar design.New England Hydropower, based in Beverly Farms, Mass., says its generators extract potential energy from “large blocks of slowly downward moving water” and aren’t harmful to fish. Photovoltaic systems are usually a better investmentFor purposes of comparison, $5,400 will pay for a photovoltaic (PV) system rated at 1,350 watts. Such a PV system would produce 1,969 kWh per year in Boulder, Colorado — significantly more energy than the high estimate provided by EnergyMatters.com for the Liam turbine installed at a site with an average wind speed of 11 mph. (It’s worth noting that a site with an average wind speed of 11 mph is very rare. Moreover, for a wind turbine to operate effectively, it must be mounted on a high tower; presumably, such a tower isn’t included in the quoted price of $5,400 for the Liam turbine.)For more information on residential wind turbines, see Backyard Wind Turbines and Resisting the Allure of Small Wind Turbines.last_img read more

Internet of Things in Retail: What’s in it for Retailers

first_imgRelated Posts Ray Parker is an entrepreneur and internet marketer with over 9 years of experience in Search Engine Optimization, Creative Writing and Digital Marketing. Internet of Things is transforming and revolutionizing every aspect of our lives. Be it leisure, business, retail or healthcare, almost every industry is settling to adopt new technologies and IoT is no exception. According to McKinsey an estimated of 20 to 30 billion connected devices will be available by 2020 with a total worth of $17 billion.The above statistics clear all the doubts regarding the adoption of IoT in various industries. The growth seems to be undiminished and the overall adoption will be on par. With the competition on the rise, retailers are striving to take necessary steps to offer unique shopping experience and be more profitable, unique and efficient.There is a lot to discuss on IoT in retail, but first, let’s have a brief overview of what Internet of Thing is all about.What is the Internet of Things (IoT) and Use in Daily Life?When we talk about the Internet of Things, it is the term used to describe Machine-to-Machine connectivity, where hardware devices and sensors interact with each other on their settings and whereabouts.Knowingly or unknowingly, many of us have used IoT devices or seen it somewhere. For instance, Nest Thermostat is widely adopted by homeowners to set the temperature at the desired level. After reaching the set temperature, it will turn off automatically, saving you cost on electricity.Moreover, IoT devices have been widely integrated into home appliances such as air conditioners, refrigerators dryers, ovens and what not.Talking about the retail sector, IoT allows retailers to track customer behavior and collect data to use it in the future for business decisions. If you are looking forward to implementing IoT in your retail business, make sure to go through this article to know what IoT has to offer to the retailers.IoT in Retail IndustryBefore we discuss what is in IoT for retailers, let’s have a brief overview of benefits reported by early adopters.77% of retailers see IoT as a mean to change the customer’s experience89% of early adopters in retail benefited from the insights about customer preferences and behaviors from an Internet of Things.77% of early adopters of IoT in retail offered better opportunities to interact with new partners in delivering products and services to the customers.Digital Signage to Reach Consumer Device  With the rise in online shopping trend, retail has been largely affected by the way consumers are been affected. People tend to buy more online because the goods are offered at a cheap price. Moreover, comparison-shopping is also one of the reasons to shop online.Due to this, the traditional retailers are prone to a number of challenges. With the ability to save some money, convenience, and comparison-shopping, people still need the help of sales assistant to save some time in researching the goods they tend to purchase.The retail war is increasing at a rapid pace and brick and mortar shop owners have to set the prices to match online prices. This is quite a challenging task for traditional retailers to attract customers to the store.IoT can rescue in resolving this issue. For instance, the traditional retailers can incorporate digital signage that connects with social networks and customers feedback for the customers in the store. It would help customers to view the information about the product instead of using a mobile device.Digital signage as discussed before can also be helpful in displaying related goods, which might be of customer’s interest. Moreover, it can lead the customers in the direction of goods that would complement their purchase.Another aspect of marketing is to understand the customers’ behavior. To attract more customers, an advertisement can be displayed in the mobile phone’s notification bar when they pass the store. Retailers can also use this feature for the customers who are present in the store by displaying the products in real life and introduce them in the best possible way through sales assistant.Sales assistant, on the other hand, can check whether the product is available in stock and complete the transaction seamlessly. This is where IoT can be helpful, offering sales assistant to check the availability of product instore through their smartwatch.The smartwatch is connected to the database of all the products connected to the sensor. Moreover, the sales assistant can also show how the product works using a tablet. In the end, sales assistant could use the same tablet to complete the transaction in no time.Directing Customers to Locate Goods Retailers have to employ staff to assist customers with all that is present in the store. Supermarkets are flooded with products and searching for specific product is not an easy task. This means that customers will have to spend much of their time in the supermarket to search for products they need.However, IoT can help save the time of customers as well as retail owners to save money by hiring extra staff. For instance, by equipping the store with sensors can assist sales person and customer to locate a specific product. Moreover, digital displays with the ability to read sensors can inform the customers about the product description, its benefits and in case of the food item, the nutritional level.In case of food items, many of them have short shelf life. IoT can prove to be helpful by ensuring that the due date is correct before delivering it to the customer.Ecosystem Opportunities Most of the home improvement, general merchandise, and electronics retailers are opting for home automation or smart home sections in their store. Not only IoT is needed by enterprises, but open the opportunities for general consumer as well.Retailers are already availing this opportunity to be players in the ecosystem with service support, sales support and automated orders generated by IoT sensors in consumers’ homes. For instance, Amazon is currently working on the order method of choice for anything you might ask Alexa.Conclusion In this technological era, retailers need to understand the importance of implementing the IoT to stay ahead of the competition, grow revenue and build customers base. However, if you are not well versed in the technology, many IoT Solution providers will help you devise the strategy, plan it and deploy it.
