This presentation will demonstrate a new multiphysics-based ESD capability which allows the ESD testing process to be analyzed via computer simulation. This will save companies time and money by allowing ESD protection to be optimized during the design phase, thus reducing the number of prototypes required to be built and tested.

The effect of diffuse scattering can clearly be seen on the cross polarized components. Click here to read the full abstract. Join them to learn about their new predictive tool for simulating Full Dimension Multiple Input, Multiple Output (FD-MIMO) in urban environments. They’ll evaluate a hypothetical small cell base station employing FD-MIMO for cases using different numbers of transmit antennas. They will then analyze predicted multipath in the environment and compare performance of beamforming techniques for each of the simulated cases.

Among the names seeking Anchorage’s District 16 is Gruenberg’s widow, Kayla Epstein, who says she wants to ensure her husband’s work is completed. Epstein hopes to champion a bill which would include pets in divorce hearings and domestic violence cases. She currently sits on the Anchorage Animal Control Board. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Applications have been received for the seat left vacant by the passing of Anchorage Representative Max Gruenberg. Gruenberg died a little over a week ago on February 14th. He was 72 years old. The Alaska Democratic Party will compile a list of recommendations to forward to the Governor who will appoint a replacement.

The Kenai Peninsula could be chosen as the site for a processing plant, bringing 150 jobs and families to Kenai, Seward, or Homer. Tim Dillon, Director of the Kenai Peninsula Economic Development District, told the Borough Assembly this month that the development would also help spur the construction and retail sectors… Dillon: “What we’re trying to do is make sure that the product doesn’t go from Nome down to the state of Washington to get processed and then over to Asia. What we want is we want it to stay in Alaska. So, working with the Governor’s office and AIDEA – the Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority – with their CEO and Director of Communications, we’ve been working with several different communities, and I’m very pleased to tell you that of the four different communities that are being considered around Alaka, three of them are here on the Kenai Peninsula.” AIDEA officials say the final decision will be influenced by the amount of land which is available in each community, the utilities and infrastructure which have been built and could support the processing plant, and access to large-scale transportation options like rail or barge.
City now have an 18-day break, before travelling to Sheffield United at the end of the month.The City number four says the time between now and then will be focused on recovery, improving and working hard to cement a positive final run-in.“We’ve put ourselves in a great position,” he said. If you’d have said with ten games to go that we’d be sixth, we’d have taken it at the start of the season. There’s a long way to go still and hopefully we can nail down that spot.“When we come back it’s a really hectic schedule. We will have to dust ourselves down, recharge batteries for the last push and hopefully achieve something.”The defender was on the scoresheet in a 1-1 draw against his former club Ipswich Town on Tuesday night.Reflecting on the match, Webster said: “It was a difficult evening. The tough conditions out there didn’t help but hopefully, come the ends of the season, this will be a point gained for us.“I think it was a fair result, to be honest. Neither team edged it in terms of chances. It’s frustrating not to take all three points but there’s a break now, a chance to recharge batteries, work on a few things and go again when we come back.”Match sponsor: Hunter Selection
BATON ROUGE – Some college football fans wear suits, ties and sundresses to games. Others shake pom poms. And in certain parts of the country, fans tailgate with fine china.Not at LSU.“It’s a real working man’s kind of crowd,” said Jacob Hester, who played fullback at LSU from 2004-07. “You have people from every background and they’re there to watch football and cheer. They’re not there to be seen.”The people who file into Death Valley every Saturday play a crucial role in making it the most intimidating place to play in sports, and it’s always been this way. But why? Clemson’s Memorial Stadium bears the same nickname, a lot of college football stadiums are loud, and other venues in sports are rowdy.So what makes Tiger Stadium different?“All of them Cajuns,” said Marcus Spears, who played defensive end at LSU from 2001-04. “This state, we have New Orleans, we have Baton Rouge, an extension of New Orleans. It’s hospitality, it’s partying, it’s a family reunion every single weekend.“It’s just the fabric and the culture in the state of Louisiana that when it’s time to have a good time, we’re gonna go 10 decibels higher than anybody else. We literally know how to party harder and louder than anybody else.”Two weeks ago, LSU didn’t appear as newsworthy with two losses and a then-No. 3 Ole Miss coming to town. But the Tigers ended up winning 10-7. Coach Les Miles said this week that was the loudest game he can remember since beating Tim Tebow’s Florida in 2007. After the game, Rebels quarterback Bo Wallace admitted the stadium affected him.“It’s a crazy atmosphere,” he said. “This is the craziest place I’ve played. Actually, it (the noise) did factor (into third-down plays).”In his 10th year as the Tigers’ coach, Miles is 46-3 on Saturday nights in Death Valley. And the place is even louder in 2014 with a new addition to the South end zone, setting the capacity at 102,321.“One thing that’s different is some college students have maybe gotten too sophisticated to jump up and down and cheer for the team,” said Sam Nader, LSU’s director of football operations, who has been part of the program for 39 years. “Not here.”Saturday night, No. 4 Alabama will come to Death Valley in what is a crucial game for the Crimson Tide as they wind through the SEC West. Nick Saban, who coached at LSU from 2000-04, is one of three coaches who have beaten Miles in Death Valley at night. A win would make him the only one to do it twice.“It’s kind of easy to have a good feel for (the atmosphere) and a good perspective on it because I’ve been on both sides of the fence,” Saban said.“We certainly have a tremendous amount of respect for what you have to do to go in there and stay focused and not get caught up in all the emotion that is something that is really special in the environment in that stadium, to be able to stay focused on what you need to do to play well.”Hester scored the winning touchdown in one of the most famous games played in Tiger Stadium history in 2007 when No. 1 LSU overcame a 10-point, fourth-quarter deficit to beat reigning national champion Florida. There was a record 92,910 fans in attendance.“The electricity in the stadium that night, I don’t know if it can ever be duplicated,” Hester said. “So many things that went into that game. Florida was one of the best teams in the country, they had the whole Tim Tebow show, and then they announced during the game — because we were No. 1 in one poll and USC was No. 1 in the other — and during the third quarter they announced that USC had lost to Stanford so the whole place goes nuts.”There was also the famous “Earthquake game” in 1988 when Tiger Stadium was so loud for LSU-Auburn that it registered as an earthquake on the seismograph located in LSU’s geoscience complex.Tommy Hodson, the Tigers’ quarterback who found tailback Eddie Fuller for the game’s only touchdown in the fourth quarter for the 7-6 victory, described the sound of the stadium the moment it erupted.“You can’t hear yourself,” he said. “If you were standing next to someone, you wouldn’t be able to hear them speak. You could only see their mouth moving.”Earlier this week, Miles smiled while reminiscing about taking the field in Death Valley for the first time in 2005. His feelings toward the place haven’t changed.“It absolutely warmed my heart when I took the field,” he said Wednesday. “It’s always been an honor of mine as a head coach to do that.”Connect with Laken on Twitter @LakenLitman
AUBURN – There may not be a wide receiver in the country as dynamic as Amari Cooper, but if there is, they’re certainly nowhere near Auburn’s scout team.Trying to replicate the Alabama wide out’s skills on the practice field is an impossible task for the Auburn backups leading into the Iron Bowl.“You can put a jersey on somebody who has the same number, but to simulate one of the best players in college football, that’s probably not realistic,” Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said. “But you do the best you can.”Cooper is one of three finalists for the Biletnikoff Award as the nation’s top receiver, with 90 receptions for 1,349 yards and 11 touchdowns.Auburn has struggled mightily against the pass in the second half of the season and will double-team the 6-foot-1 210 pound junior at times in order to keep him from breaking a big play, like his 99-yard touchdown in last year’s Iron Bowl.“We’ll do it some, absolutely,” Auburn defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson said. “Of course, there’s a lot of different ways you do it. What everybody calls double-zone, just two deep, try to have somebody over the top. Try to disguise what you’re doing.“Got to get some pressure on the quarterback to have any chance; that’s got to improve.”Auburn cornerback Jonathon Mincy lined up against Cooper for most of last year’s game and they may battle it out again on Saturday. Jonathan Jones, who leads Auburn with five interceptions and 10 pass breakups, could also see time covering Cooper, as he’s matched up with other top receivers this season.Because of Cooper’s ability to find holes all over the field, Auburn’s linebackers will also be keenly aware of him.“We definitely have to know where he is at all times,” linebacker Kris Frost said. “We have to know where our coverages are rolling down to, and we have to be able to really look at our guard reads and everything and know when it is pass.”Though Cooper is far and away Alabama’s leading wide out, there are plenty of other targets for Blake Sims to throw to.DeAndrew White, who has 30 receptions for 319 yards and two touchdowns, is expected after coping with a hamstring injury and Christion Jones (15 receptions for 203 yards) and O.J. Howard also present difficult matchups for the Auburn secondary.“(Cooper’s) a great player but the problem is they’ve got a lot of great players,” Johnson said. “You start focusing on him all night long, you have to be aware of him, they’ve got a bunch of great players out there.“I don’t even know if he’s the fastest receiver they’ve got. They’ve got some burners. … As great a player as he is, and it’s obvious they’re trying to get the ball to him, there’s some other guys that can really make plays that we can’t lose the attention to them to.”Auburn also has to be aware of Alabama’s running game, with running backs T.J. Yeldon and Derrick Henry and quarterback Blake Sims.The balanced attack is part of what keeps defenses from locking on Cooper, who has six 100-yard games this season.“Amari Cooper is one of the better playmakers in all of college football, if not the best playmaker,” Malzahn said. “They’ve got other weapons that have been extremely talented in the passing game but they’re also good at running the football. It’s one of the better offenses in college football and obviously when they play at home they’ve been that much better.“You just got to strategically mix things up and try to keep them as off balance as you can but they’re a very good offense.”

All it is supposed to be is a map designating a territory for each team for something like “loyalty to where you’re from” or something like that. There’s no actual rhyme or reason to the borders/delineation, it’s just “oh, there’s a couple of teams in proximity here, let’s squeeze them in and draw a funky border that looks like it’d be an old map”. Don’t read into it more than that. If it were realistic for instance, there just wouldn’t be a Mets section. It’d be overwhelmingly Yankees everywhere. 2 Page 1 of 4 333 Posted December 29, 2012 Link to post DC in Da House w/o a Doubt 1,963 posts Members Share on other sites 0 Share on other sites 423 0 Followers 0 Share on other sites Share on other sites Share on other sites Location:Born in Palo Alto, CA – left immediately for Milwaukee, WI – then Ft.

So I thought, why not and try to see what are some of the good maps out there with sports logos on them that shows their location.Sure, some maps with logos could not be 100% accurate, but I’m probably talking more about presentations.Sometimes it’s just fun to see a map with all of the logos so you can see how far and close the teams are to each other.
