February 03, 2017 Efficiency, Energy, GO-TIME, Press Release ANNVILLE, PA – The Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (DMVA) finalized a contract to build a solar panel farm that will provide Fort Indiantown Gap, Lebanon County, with clean renewable solar energy for the next 20 years, reducing the facility’s power demand costs.“This solar power purchase agreement is a first-of-its-kind for a commonwealth agency and provides a template for other agencies seeking to implement green energy solutions,” said Brig. Gen. Tony Carrelli, Pennsylvania’s adjutant general. “Every time we introduce leading-edge technologies, cost savings and improved efficiencies, it is a win for Pennsylvania and its residents.”The solar panel farm is the latest in a series of initiatives the DMVA has taken in recent years to improve energy savings, including the conversion of most facilities on the Fort Indiantown Gap training center to natural gas.Slated for construction in the spring of 2017, the solar panel farm will reside on nearly 19 acres of land located between Service and Coulter roads on Fort Indiantown Gap. The panels are expected to generate 5,697 MWhs of solar energy in their first year, which is equivalent to providing power for 525 residential homes. The solar panel farm will also reduce the consumption of electricity from the power grid for Fort Indiantown Gap by 15 percent, while meeting federal energy standards requiring the use of clean, renewable and alternative energy.The DMVA, with assistance from the Department of General Services, is contracting with Tesla Laboratories Incorporated to design, construct, operate and maintain the solar panel farm at no cost to the agency. The DMVA will purchase energy from the farm for 20 years. At the end of the term, the facility can either be purchased from Tesla or removed from DMVA property.Tesla has a history of providing energy solutions to the Department of Defense, previously supporting a number of deployments to Iraq by producing electricity for the warfighters.The DMVA’s initiative to improve energy savings supports the Governor’s Office of Transformation, Innovation, Management and Efficiency (GO-TIME), which works with state entities to modernize government operations in order to reduce costs and improve services. State agencies already saved over $156 million and Governor Wolf challenged GO-TIME to build upon this success by achieving $500 million in savings by 2020.To learn more about GO-TIME, visit https://www.governor.pa.gov/go-time/.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf GO-TIME: Solar Panel Farm to Provide Clean Energy Savings to Fort Indiantown Gap SHARE Email Facebook Twitter read more
Duff went off injured.A point in the Netherlands would have left Fulham needing only a draw at Craven Cottage to go through.Fulham’s line-up seemed full of attacking intent, with Johnson, Bobby Zamora and Moussa Dembele all starting.But they spent most of the game defending, with Zamora man-marked up front and both Johnson and Demeble working hard on the flanks.Twente, already through to the next stage, have scored 63 goals in all competitions this season but were mainly restricted to long-range efforts by Martin Jol’s men.The dangerous Nacer Chandli was twice denied by Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer, who also did well to keep out Leroy Fer’s shot.Fulham were forced into a change 10 minutes before the interval, when Damien Duff went off after suffering an apparent recurrence of the calf injury that kept him out of Saturday’s draw at Arsenal.The Irishman was replaced by exciting youngster Kerim Frei, who created an opening shortly after the hour mark.Frei galloped towards the penalty area and picked out Dembele, who went down under a challenge from Wout Brama which referee Marijo Stahonja deemed fair.Johnson then missed Fulham’s best chance of the match, dragging a shot wide after Stephen Kelly’s pass had ricocheted into his path.Luuk de Jong was even more wasteful at the other end after being set up by John.The younger brother of former Fulham player Collins John cut in from the left and crossed for the unmarked striker, who headed wide.That miss was almost punished when Zamora nudged the ball narrowly wide after Danny Murphy’s cleverly-taken free-kick.Having defended so well, Fulham switched off and Twente were able to nick a winner.Emir Bajrami was given time to find Rosales, and Kelly allowed Janko to creep in front of him and meet the Venezuelan’s low cross with a simple finish.Johnson’s subsequent moment of madness may yet prove costly, but Fulham remain very strong favourites to progress.Follow West London Sport on Twitter. FC Twente 1 Fulham 0Marc Janko’s 89th-minute goal left Fulham needing to win their final Group K match to be sure of a place in the knockout phase of the Europa League.And striker Andrew Johnson will miss that game – at home to Danish outfit Odense – after being sent off in injury time in Enschede.AdChoices广告Fulham were on course for an important point before Roberto Rosales whipped the ball in from the right for substitute Janko to score from six yards out.The visitors were then dealt another blow when Johnson, who had already been booked, petulantly kicked the ball away after being penalised for a foul on Ola John and was shown a second yellow card.The Whites’ late lapse means FC Twente win the group – and that Fulham will go out if they fail to beat Odense and Wisla Krakov manage an upset against the Dutch side in a fortnight. read more
SALT LAKE CITY – The Warriors (1-0) just completed morning shootaround for Friday’s game against the Utah Jazz (1-0). Below are the takeaways from that session.Will Andre Iguodala play?After participating in all of morning shootaround, the Warriors’ veteran offered coach Steve Kerr some encouraging words about the tightness in his left calf.“He told me he feels pretty good,” Kerr said.The Warriors still want to verify.

Cosmic billions of years received another challenge. Sky and Telescope reported on a announcement by Michael R. Merrifield (University of Nottingham, England), Richard J. Rand and Sharon E. Meidt (University of New Mexico) in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society that they measured the velocity of gases in the spiral galaxy, M77, and found that they behave just as you would expect: gases toward the center of the galaxy are orbiting faster than gases farther out. “Billions of years” cosmology requires that the spiral structure of galaxies be caused by something other than simple orbital mechanics, otherwise the spirals would blur in a cosmologically short time.Merrifield and his colleagues derived new formulas and applied them to measurements of M77’s carbon-monoxide-laced gas clouds (carbon monoxide molecules emit finely tuned radio waves, allowing astronomers to precisely measure the positions and line-of-sight velocities of interstellar matter). Spiral-shaped wave patterns that are just 3,000 light-years (20 arcseconds) from the galaxy’s center whirl around the core three times as often as those 6,000 light-years out, says the team – all but guaranteeing that the galaxy’s bright inner pinwheel is destined to wind itself up into an amorphous disk. “If this result turns out to apply commonly to other galaxies,” the scientists write, “then intergalactic travelers would be well advised not to use the morphology of spiral structure to identify their homes.” (Emphasis added in all quotes.)The scientific community is not so easily persuaded:Bruce G. Elmegreen (IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center) cautions that the composition of M77’s interstellar clouds may differ from place to place, possibly fooling Merrifield and his collaborators into thinking that the innermost parts of the galaxy’s spiral pattern will outrace the outer parts after a few laps around the track. And while M77’s inferred identity as a quick-change artist doesn’t surprise John Kormendy (University of Texas, Austin), he doubts that M77’s subtle inner spiral can shed much light on the longevity of simple but bold spirals seen in prominently barred galaxies like NGC 1300 and in closely interacting ones like M51.Merrifield and his colleagues have shown with empirical evidence that spiral galaxies are doing exactly what they look like they are doing: spinning in an ever tightening wind-up that will, in a short time cosmologically, completely erase their spiral structure. This is anathema to astronomers such as Elmegreen and Kormendy who must at all costs support the 13 billion year old age of the universe. Elmegreen and Kormendy had no evidence of their own to refute Merrifield, and so resorted to attacking the quality of Merrifield’s data. Since the 1930s when this problem first surfaced, astronomers have had to come up with fanciful explanations for how the spiral structures remain in place for billions of years. Density waves are the current favorite: we are asked to believe that the spiral arms we see are just waves of higher density that propagate through the galaxy in spiral patterns, creating new stars as they progress. Computer modeling this theory has been challenging. The models must be creatively tuned to produce the observed spiral structures (see Russell Humphreys’ point #1 for young age on AiG).This entry was submitted by a reader.(Visited 13 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 read more
Lacson backs proposal to elect president and vice president in tandem LATEST STORIES Anthony sat courtside at his former home to watch Wade help Miami beat the New York Knicks 106-97.“I didn’t know he was coming.

We went out to dinner and I was contemplating retirement and Melo was one of the ones that was pushing me to come back and he was like, ‘Flash, you can’t go out like that. You got to come back and get that love, that last tour kind of.’ And he was a big part of me making that decision. I am glad he came out (to) see me play in person, you know, maybe for the last time. So it’s cool.”Anthony spent 6½ seasons with the Knicks before they traded him to Oklahoma City in September 2017. He’s still looking for a team after the Houston Rockets traded him to the Chicago Bulls, who are expected to either trade or waive the 10-time All-Star.

He told MSG Network it was important to come back and see Wade, who is scheduled for one more game back in the arena in March.“It means a lot because it was very difficult for me to come out of the house and come to an NBA game,” Anthony said, “but if there was one moment that I could come out and be here in this seat it’s to come see him finish it out here in the Garden. … It’s deeper than basketball when it comes to us.”Anthony holds the single-game record at the current Garden with 62 points, one more than James Harden scored for Houston last week in a win over the Knicks. The New York native expects to return to the arena as more than a fan in the future.“I’ve had some great years in this building and I look forward to coming back and playing in this building some more,” Anthony said.ADVERTISEMENT Mighty-PH fielding younger, more cohesive unit SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte ‘We are too hospitable,’ says Sotto amid SEA Games woes Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade, left, hugs former New York Knick Carmelo Anthony after the NBA basketball game, Sunday, Jan. 27, 2019, in New York.

We’re just a few days from Christmas, which means that by now, you’ve likely heard every holiday-themed song out there at least a dozen times. But which are the best? We’re here to let you know.Of course, everyone will have a different list. Let us know what you think.10. Andy Williams – It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The YearRecorded in 1963, it was by far Williams’ biggest hit. But it wasn’t even the promotional single on his Christmas album – instead, White Christmas got the nod. Whoops.9. Jose Feliciano – Feliz NavidadFeliz Navidad, recorded in 1970, might be the simplest Christmas song out there – there aren’t really even any verses. But it’s upbeat and fun, and the back-and-forth between English and Spanish makes it unlike any other Christmas classic.8. Bruce Springsteen – Santa Claus Is Comin’ To TownProbably the most controversial inclusion on the list. Some people love Bruce, some people don’t see what the big deal is. Regardless, his live take on this classic is one for the ages. Recorded in 1980, released in 1981.7. Brenda Lee – Rockin’ Around The Christmas TreeYou likely haven’t attended a “Christmas party hop” in your lifetime, but back in 1958, that was apparently the thing to do. Brenda Lee’s half-a-century-old classic still holds up today, regardless. 6. Bing Crosby – White ChristmasFun fact – Bing Crosby’s version of White Christmas, according to Guinness World Records, is the best-selling single of all-time. But he didn’t write it – that distinction belongs to Irving Berlin. Crosby originally released it in 1942.Next: Songs 5 – 1 >>>Pages: Page 1 Page 2 read more
