USA: Alion Wins USD 4.6 Million Navy Contract to Develop PC-Based Training System for LCS-2

first_img View post tag: Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today USA: Alion Wins USD 4.6 Million Navy Contract to Develop PC-Based Training System for LCS-2 View post tag: system Alion Science and Technology, an employee-owned technology solutions company, was awarded a three-year, $4.6 million task order from the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD) to design a high-fidelity serious game to train sailors for the Littoral Combat Ship-2 (LCS) Readiness Control Officer (RCO) position. Alion will expand its PC-based Virtual Maintenance Performance Aid (VMPA) from the current system developed for the LCS-1 RCO to an updated solution designed for the LCS-2 environment. This design approach demonstrates the reconfigurable nature of the simulation architecture and yields a more cost effective solution. Since each vessel has different training requirements, Alion’s VMPA RCO for LCS-2 trainer will include a ship-specific Electronic Control System graphical user interface, an instructor station that can control the training environment, the ability to integrate with the Surface Warfare Officers School’s LCS Bridge Training System and the virtual ship simulation that allows the trainee to learn the new equipment in a 3-D environment.Ultimately, it is intended that the LCS-2 RCO will integrate with the LCS Shore Based Training Facility (SBTF) in San Diego.“Alion is continuing its support of the VMPA Readiness Control Trainer program by building off of the existing trainer to provide a fully interactive, PC-based virtual ship environment to teach individual and team training on the LCS-2 hull,” said Rear Adm. Richard E. Brooks (USN, Ret.), Alion Senior Vice President and Manager of the Distributed Simulation Group. “Our trainer represents the capability to provide a total ship training environment, from tactical and force protection to damage control and maintenance training.”Alion will provide the updated hardware and software for LCS-2 RCO to the Surface Warfare Officers School and the Littoral Combat Ship Class Squadron. VMPA was developed in partnership with the Office of Naval Research and NAWCTSD to bridge the gap between training, skills and performance. NAWCTSD is the Littoral Combat Ship Training System Executive Agent.About Alion Science and TechnologyAlion Science and Technology is an employee-owned technology solutions company delivering technical expertise and operational support to the Department of Defense, civilian government agencies and commercial customers. Building on almost 75 years of R&D and engineering expertise, Alion brings innovation and insight to multiple business areas: naval architecture & marine engineering; defense operations; modeling & simulation; technology integration; information technology & wireless communications; and energy and environmental sciences.

Atlanta Hawks owner to sell team after saying he hates Black fan base

first_imgAtlanta Hawks owner Bruce Levenson admits he hates the fan base that populates Phillips Arena. It’s just too black.Can you believe that the Atlanta Hawks owner Bruce Levenson may have gotten caught sending an email filled with language even more racist than what Donald Sterling got kicked out of the NBA for?Levenson just announced he’s selling the team after admitting he sent an email so racist that it would make Donald Sterling smile.NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, who finally exhaled after exiling former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling for his secretly-taped and rabidly racist phone message to his flunky jump off chick, had to be choking on his breakfast cereal when he got the memo that Levenson did pretty much the same thing.When confronted by Silver, Levenson admitted he sent the email to team executives back in 2012, mandating them to figure ways to attract more suburban white fans at games. Levenson then tallied what he believes are all the problems with the Atlanta Hawks fan base, listing the following:The fan base is 70 pct black;The cheerleaders are black;The music is almost exclusively hip hop;The bars inside the arena are 90 percent black;He claims there are few fathers and sons at the games;He says the postgame concerts are always either hip hop or gospelLevenson wasn’t finished. He also had this to say:“My theory is that the black crowd scared away the whites and there are simply not enough affluent black fans to build a significant season ticket base.” He also complained that he’s told team execs, “I want some white cheerleaders … I have even bitched that the kiss cam is too black.”NBA Commissioner Adam Silver told reporters that Levenson admitted to sending the email, just two months after Donald Sterling was escorted out of ownership of the Clippers.Levenson said he is immediately putting the team up for sale.Levenson has since apologized to fans in a written statement, saying:“If you’re angry about what I wrote, you should be. I’m angry at myself too.”last_img read more

Inter Milan escape Juventus to stay top

first_img0Shares0000Juventus’ forward Paulo Dybala (L) and midfielder Blaise Matuidi (C) fight for the ball with Inter Milan’s midfielder Matias Vecino on December 9, 2017 © AFP / MARCO BERTORELLOMILAN, Italy, Dec 10 – Unbeaten Inter Milan maintained their lead at the top of Serie A after a hard-fought goalless draw at arch-rivals Juventus on Saturday.Luciano Spalletti’s Inter leave Turin two points ahead of second-placed Napoli, who are level on 38 points with Juventus and have the chance to reclaim top spot at home to Fiorentina on Sunday. Inter can be considered fortunate to escape the Allianz Stadium with a point after watching the dominant hosts create a series of chances, most of which were created by lively right-winger Juan Cuadrado and wasted by Mario Mandzukic.Inter started the game well but created nothing of note, and as the match wore on the away side sank further back into their own half, unable to keep the ball and in the end lucky to escape with a point.“Leaving Turin with a point and a clean sheet is positive,” said Spalletti. “The first 30 minutes were very good up until the final third.“I thought we had the potential to do more, but we gave the ball away because we weren’t determined enough in the second half. We almost seemed to rest on our laurels and be content with just keeping possession.”Despite Inter’s early domination of the ball, Mandzukic could have given Juve the lead as early as the eighth minute when a Cuadrado cross wormed its way through a crowd of defenders, but the Croat shot straight at Inter keeper Samir Handanovic from close range.Unfortunate Mandzukic went closer than anyone did to scoring just before the end of a tight first half, meeting another cross from his Colombian teammate only to to see his powerful header thwack the crossbar.The second half continued as the first ended, but Juve couldn’t capitalise on a wobbling Inter team that was struggling to get out of its own half, with the excellent Handanovic on hand to repel the hosts when they didn’t fluff chances on their own.Mandzukic — Juve’s freshest player after missing the 2-0 win at Olympiakos that secured their placed in the last 16 of the Champions League — had the best opportunity to win the match with just eight minutes left.– ‘Two dropped points’ –He was found alone in the area with space to shoot, but he slipped before he could pull the trigger and Inter escaped with a precious point.“Inter are top of the table, are a quality team and worked really hard. We were great in the second half and were only lacking a goal,” said Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri.“It’s a shame we didn’t win, but considering how much we can improve, I am happy with the performance, as Inter are competitive to fight for the title to the end.”But midfielder Miralem Pjanic conceded the draw felt like a missed opportunity for Juve as they chase a seventh straight league crown.“The disappointment of the team in the locker room was evident, as we were the stronger side on the field and didn’t take our chances,” Pjanic said.“It’s a pity, as we were superior on the night and could’ve done more to win…I see this as two dropped points, as Inter never really had scoring opportunities.”Sixth-placed Sampdoria missed the chance to close in on the Champions League places earlier after throwing away a two-goal half-time lead created by Fabio Quagliarella to draw 2-2 at Cagliari, who stay 13th on 17 points thanks to goals in four minutes from Diego Farias and Leonardo Pavoletti.Marco Giampaolo’s Samp are seven points behind Roma in fourth, who travel to Chievo in Sunday’s early match.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Visa issues threaten Huntington garden

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SAN MARINO – For the construction of its new 12-acre Chinese Garden, The Huntington Library is importing key materials from China, including hand-crafted lattice windows, roof tiles and sculptural rocks. But operating in a post-9/11 world, it is now in the midst of a struggle to obtain another key element: Chinese craftsmen skilled at stone-carving.The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has denied applications for temporary exchange visas for 11 Suzhou artisans.Originally scheduled to arrive this month, the stone-carvers are needed to create bridges for the garden.“There is a lot of training and apprenticeships involved. It’s an expertise and craftsmanship you can’t find here,” said Laurie Sowd, operations director for The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens. “We really wanted that authentic feel for the garden.” Sowd said she received a standard letter of notification and is appealing the decision.The update was announced as part of a San Marino City Council meeting Friday with overseers and senior staff from The Huntington. The joint meeting marked the first time the library’s master plan was presented publicly. Officials said applications for a temporary cultural exchange visa for the craftsmen were submitted in the spring.According to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Web site, the “Q” visa is for “the purpose of providing practical training and employment, and the sharing of the history, culture, and traditions of the participant’s home country in the United States.”Created in 2003, the USCIS is part of the Department of Homeland Security. The agency performs some functions formerly done by the now-defunct U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service, which was part of the Department of Justice.The visa application is complicated by the fact that the artisans would technically be employees of contractors, though sponsored by The Huntington, an educational and research institute. The craftsmen would stay for about 2 1/2 months to design and install the stonework. It is important to have the work done on-site so other design elements, such as vistas, could be incorporated, Sowd said.Later, when work on pavilions was done, more artisans would be brought in for a longer period of time. The Portland Classical Chinese Garden in Oregon has had similar visa troubles. Two years ago, a group of musicians was denied visas and unable to perform at the garden, said Gloria Lee, executive director of the Portland garden, which was constructed in 1999. Lee said she had noticed a marked difference in the handling of visa applications since the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Meanwhile, construction continues with other aspects of The Huntington’s Chinese Garden.Phase one consists of a three-acre Summer Garden. So far, the outline of a one-acre lake has been dug out and footing for a tea house and bridges have been put in.“It looks simply like dirt has been moved around, but it’s so much more than that,” said Huntington spokeswoman Susan Turner-Lowe.The infrastructure for the garden is especially complicated because traditional Chinese architecture has to be adapted for a seismically active area. An “unbelievable amount of engineering” has also gone into water management in the form of retaining walls and pumps for the lake, Turner-Lowe said. Water will stream to the existing Japanese Garden and back.To date, $10 million has been raised for the Summer Garden. Construction on pavilions will begin after another $5 million has been raised. The garden will open temporarily after the lake area is completed; the entire garden is scheduled for completion around 2008.“It’s a complicated project and there are things that come up to make it more complicated,” Turner-Lowe said.“It is the most ambitious project in the last 10 years. We hope it will be a center for the Chinese diaspora.” [email protected](626) 578-6300, Ext. 4586last_img read more

Smithsonian Reversal Over ID Noticed by Big Science

first_imgBoth Nature1 and Science2 noticed the Smithsonian’s flip-flop over co-sponsoring The Privileged Planet at their Natural History Museum this month (see 06/01/2005 entry).  Both noted the quandary that the Smithsonian found itself in.  They could not back out because of a contract, but under pressure from evolutionists, did not want to appear to endorse intelligent design.  This led them to return the $16,000 fee so that they would not appear to be cooperating with the Discovery Institute, and to remove their co-sponsorship while allowing the event to go forward.    Nature noted that email from “researchers and the public” prompted the backtracking, titling its news item, “Evolution row makes museum ditch donation” (even though the film is not about evolution).  Science said the Smithsonian’s compromise, permitting the film to be shown privately but without their co-sponsorship or taking a fee, allowed the Institution to avoid the appearance of endorsing the film on the one hand, while on the other avoiding giving the “Discovery Institute yet another martyrdom story.”    Both articles agreed that Discovery Institute had done nothing wrong in scheduling the film.  It was a routine procedure they followed.  Science said that museum spokesperson gave the film a clean review, even though museum policies “preclude events with a religious, political, or commercial message.”  A second review, after the hubbub, also concluded that “the film fell within the museum’s guidelines for such events.”  Their basis for claiming the film violated their scientific research policy was explained by anthropologist Richard Potts, chair of the museum’s human origins program:But it was very clear that the film was trying to situate science within the wider realm of belief.  The idea that human beings have been placed on Earth to discover the principles of the universe is not a position that stems from science; it is a metaphysical and religiously based conclusion.   (Emphasis added in all quotes.)The Smithsonian frequently accepts donations for use of their auditorium.  After the complaints by evolutionists, however, the Smithsonian is reviewing its policies to avoid confusion in the future.Update 06/24/2005: The event apparently went off smoothly without acrimony or dissent; here is an eyewitness report from Salvador Cordova.1Geoff Brumfiel, “Evolutionist row makes museum ditch donation,” Nature 435, 725 (9 June 2005) | doi: 10.1038/435725a.2Yudhijit Bhattacharjee, “Smithsonian Gives Grudging OK to Film Backing ID Argument,” Science, Vol 308, Issue 5728, 1526, 10 June 2005, [DOI: 10.1126/science.308.5728.1526a].This was clearly an episode about power politics, not science.  Notice how the film passed two reviews that agreed there was no problem with the science; the museum backpedaled only because of the noise from barking Darwin bulldogs, most of whom have probably not even seen the film.  And what a weak excuse; it’s not that the film said anything outrageous, but rather that the Darwinistas don’t want to grant any credibility to the source.  That’s the genetic fallacy – can any good thing come out of Nazareth?  Well, come and see.    Potts’ pot shot about the film putting the evidence into a metaphysical/religious context is absurd.  As an anthropologist studying evolutionary human origins, has he no metaphysics?  Of course he does: look at his chairing a series of lectures on “Science, Ethics and Religion” (in terms of human evolution, of course) for the AAAS recently; another example on National Geographic News shows him speculating about the evolution of modern human behavior (notice the absence of evidence).  Are these kinds of metaphysical dialogues forbidden by the Smithsonian?  Of course not.  Evolutionists shamelessly pontificate about the metaphysical/religious implications of their beliefs, right in the halls of science and before the mass media.    For the Smithsonian to be consistent, they would have to outlaw films like Cosmos, Origins (09/29/2004) and Evolution (09/28/2001) and other pro-Darwinist films, which are replete with religious and metaphysical claims.  The inferences drawn in The Privileged Planet are understated and balanced, many of them coming from astronomers and biologists with no connections to ID.  They speak their own minds based on the evidence, something about which the Darwinians are profoundly silent.  In Darwinian movies, by contrast, the metaphysics are dogmatic and polemical, often imagineered with reckless abandon with no opportunity for rebuttal.  In sweeping generalities, Darwinians preach their philosophy of big-bang to man-as-god in homilies that would make a pope blush.  They take an inch of irrelevant fact and spin a mile with imagination, delivering their sermon outlines to animators to fill in the gaps.    Like most institutions of Big Science, the Smithsonian has become a fundamentalist church of atheism (see next entry).  Despite the increase in its lavish facilities, it has degenerated so far from the philosophy of its first distinguished secretary, Joseph Henry, it is truly sad to see how it has been co-opted by leftist anti-religious propaganda.  Chief of the Darwinian KGB Eugenie Scott was “pleased by the swift steps the museum has taken” while other Party Faithful were even more aggressive, wanting the film canceled until they feared it would make martyrs of their political prisoners.    As long as the news media and reporters perpetuate the false dichotomy and equivocation of “science” (Darwinian metaphysics) vs “belief” (non-Darwinian metaphysics), this pathetic war of heat will continue.  The Darwinians, the “most objectionable” fundamentalists according to Paul Johnson (see next entry), had better learn how to debate the evidence when the day comes that they can no longer take for granted their power to dominate the scientific institutions and prevent alternatives from being heard.(Visited 15 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
