Meeting on Dredged Material Beneficial Use Set for Tomorrow

first_imgThe U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District, and Plaquemines Parish Government are hosting a ceremony on Wednesday, August 6, to recognize the signing of a partnership agreement for initiation of Louisiana Coastal Area Beneficial Use of Dredged Material projects.These projects aim to increase the use of material dredged from the Mississippi River to restore and create important coastal landscape features in Plaquemines Parish. The ceremony will be held on Wednesday, August 6, 2014, at 11:00 a.m., at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District’s District Assembly Room A, 7400 Leake Ave, New Orleans, LA.New Orleans District Commander, Col. Richard Hansen, and Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser will be on hand to sign the LCA BUDMAT Design Agreement and provide statements on the importance of this partnership. The signing of the LCA BUDMAT Design Agreement initiates the design of the first beneficial use projects and positions the program for construction in 2015, dependent on funding from Congress.The first Plaquemines Parish LCA BUDMAT project will use material dredged from Southwest Pass to restore and create approximately 300 to 600 acres of marsh habitat. This effort will provide valuable habitat for wildlife and fisheries, reduce the loss of important coastal landscapes in Plaquemines Parish, and help sustain the ecosystems of coastal Louisiana.Overall, the LCA BUDMAT program was authorized in WRDA 2007 and aims to use material dredged from federally-maintained waterways throughout the New Orleans District beneficially to create and restore coastal landscape features, such as marshes, ridges and islands. The program can execute beneficial use projects over a ten year period for a total cost of $100 million.[mappress]Press Release, August 5, 2014last_img read more

Keysight Adds Real-Time Spectrum Analysis to its MXE EMI Receivers

first_imgKeysight Technologies has announced the availability of real-time spectrum analysis (RTSA) as an option for its standards-compliant MXE EMI receiver. Adding RTSA to an MXE enables test labs to observe and diagnose transient and wideband emissions during electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) compliance and precompliance testing.With RTSA, engineers can more easily see and understand high-speed transient signals that are difficult to capture with traditional spectrum or signal analyzers. This is especially useful in applications such as radar, automotive and wireless communications that often experience fast-moving, short-duration emissions.In RTSA mode, the MXE can provide real-time analysis bandwidth up to 85 MHz below 3.6 GHz and up to 40 MHz above 3.6 GHz, ensuring image-free, over-the-air diagnostics that enable faster, easier analysis of emissions. RTSA offers 100 percent probability of capture for signals with durations greater than 3.7 µs when viewing with an 85 MHz span.The Keysight MXE EMI receiver now offers real-time signal analysis (RTSA) for diagnostics of high-speed transient signals that are difficult to capture.Frequency mask trigger (FMT) capability is also included with RTSA, allowing users to confidently trigger on signals with durations as short as 17.4 µs. In addition, time-qualified triggering capability further enhances FMT by simplifying the task of finding pulse outliers or triggering on specific communications bursts.RTSA is an upgradeable option on new and existing MXE EMI receivers as well as UXA, PXA and MXA X-Series signal analyzers. Adding RTSA enables engineers to see, capture and understand the most elusive signals, known or unknown. For deeper analysis, engineers can combine a real-time X-Series signal analyzer with Keysight 89600 VSA software to create a solution that enables thorough characterization of today’s most complex signals.U.S. Pricing and AvailabilityThe RTSA option for MXE (N9038A-RT1) is available for order and has a list price of $22,500.last_img read more

Real Madrid midfielder ‘has offers’ from Arsenal and Man United, wants…

first_imgReturning to Real Madrid after an impressive 2016-17 season with Alaves, Marcos Llorente has somewhat stagnated over the past two campaigns. Starting just 14% of games this season, the 24-year-old appears to need a move to ensure he continues to progress as a footballer, and his preference would be a transfer to England.AS report this on Thursday, explaining the defensive midfielder has received offers from Premier League sides, notably Arsenal and Manchester United.The latter of the two makes a lot of sense, especially with their need to bolster their midfield in the upcoming transfer window and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer preparing for what sounds like a mass exodus (or as much of one as possible).The problem here remains Florentino Pérez and his transfer ideas, as AS believe the likeliest way a deal could be done would be via a sale with an option to buy him back at a later date, like they did with Alvaro Morata and Mariano.Embed from Getty ImagesSince we don’t see Manchester United agreeing to that, unless the buy back clause is especially excessive, perhaps Arsenal, whose funds are somewhat more limited than the Red Devils’ (at least that’s what January suggested), might be more open to such a deal.As well as the Gunners and the Old Trafford based club, the likes of Atlético Madrid, Roma and Sevilla are all keen on the defensive midfielder.This could end up being quite a fun little saga if there’s anything in it, and we’ll definitely be keeping an eye on it.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.
