Donegal scientist leads project which detected mysterious radio signals from deep space

first_imgAn Irish scientist has helped design a massive telescope which has helped astronomers collect mysterious sounds from a distant galaxy.What the sounds are or why they were caused is still unknown.But the group of scientists, who are based in Canada, say the radio waves come from a staggering 1.5 billion light years away. Donegal man Jojo Boyle is a scientist and manager of the group which is based in Montreal which has helped design the CHIMES project which made the discovery.His role was to manage the construction of the telescope and the supercomputer systems.He also managed the development of the software that processes the data from the telescope.Mr Boyle gave some indication of the complexity of building such a huge telescope. He revealed “CHIME is a marvel of modern technology. It produces and searches through over 100 million GigaBytes of data per day – more data than is used by all the mobile phones in the world.“A hundred-million Gigabytes is too much data to store, so it must be processed in real time on a supercomputer that has been built inside five shipping containers right under the telescope.“Even over this short distance, it takes almost 200km of fibre optic cable to move this enormous amount of data from the telescope to the shipping containers – enough to stretch all the way from Glencolmcille to Fanad – imagine this could solve all of Donegal’s broadband issues!”Mr Boyle said he is looking forward to returning to his native Dungloe in West Donegal in March to speak to students about his work.Over the past 25 years, he has worked on and managed many world-class science projects, some for NASA and most in remote places like Arizona, Antarctica, the Arctic and now Canada. “I am looking forward to coming home in March and am excited to visit our local schools to talk my work as it is important to show young people that, even if you are from Donegal, the sky is not necessarily the limit,” he said.The CHIME observatory, located in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, consists of four 100-metre-long, semi-cylindrical antennas, which scan the entire northern sky each day.The telescope only got up and running last year, detecting 13 of the radio bursts almost immediately, including the repeater.Donegal scientist leads project which detected mysterious radio signals from deep space was last modified: January 11th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:CHIMEdonegaldungloeJojo Boyletelescopelast_img read more

Hike in Tuition and Fees Coming to WCU

first_imgThe Western Carolina University Board of Trustees endorsed a schedule of tuition and fees for the 2016-17 academic year that includes a 3 percent increase in tuition for students from North Carolina previously approved by the board last December.The proposal, unanimously approved by the board at its regular quarterly meeting Friday, Dec. 4, would mean a $114 annual increase in tuition for in-state undergraduate students.During last December’s board meeting, the trustees approved a 3 percent increase in tuition for in-state students for 2015-16 and a subsequent increase of 3 percent for 2016-17, meeting instructions from the University of North Carolina Board Of Governors that all UNC campuses submit tuition and fee proposals covering those two academic years.The proposed schedule of tuition and fees must be approved by the Board of Governors and the General Assembly to become effective.Funds generated by the tuition increase would be used to add additional classes in the high-demand, high-growth areas of chemistry, biology, physics, mathematics and other STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programs; address salary issues as part of the university’s efforts to retain faculty and staff; ;and provide support for student services and programming.Even with the increase in costs for the coming year, WCU will remain among the least-expensive institutions of higher education in the state.In addition to changes in tuition, the board approved only one modification to mandatory student fees — a $10 increase in the book rental fee, from $280 per academic year to $290, to help meet the rising costs of textbooks and educational materials. All other mandatory student fees remain unchanged for 2016-17.Phil Drake, chair of the trustees’ finance and audit committee, presented the schedule of tuition and fees to the full board for approval following an afternoon of open discussion and committee meetings Thursday, Dec. 3.The board approved increases in residence hall room rates ranging from 2.5 percent to 14.50 percent to meet rising utility costs, prepare for adding housing capacity and continue renovations of existing facilities.In addition, the trustees set rates for rooms in a mixed-used facility currently under construction. A blend of residential, commercial and dining space, the new facility replaces structures damaged by fire in November 2013 and will be named Noble Hall in honor of the Noble Nine, the group of nine trustees from the late 1800s who were instrumental in the development of the school that evolved into WCU. The trustees approved naming of the hall during their November planning retreat.The board also approved increases of approximately 4 percent in the cost of student meal plans to help meet the rising costs of food and food service personnel, and approved postponement for one year of previously approved increases in campus parking fees.The action by the trustees comes after a series of meetings by a campus tuition and fee committee, including three open campus discussions, several information sessions sponsored by the Student Government Association, and an online survey that received 757 responses.With the proposed changes approved by the board, WCU’s average total cost of attendance in 2016-17, including standard residence hall accommodations and the most-popular meal plan, would be $15,391 per year (fall and spring semester) for a typical N.C. undergraduate student, a 5.7 percent increase over current year costs.last_img read more

SATURDAY SIX 2016 Election Special: A look at how Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton as President could affect Walt Disney World

first_imgShare This!This week’s SATURDAY SIX is a very special 2016 ELECTION SPECIAL – a look at how a President Trump or a President Clinton could affect Walt Disney World. We are mere days away from a historic election here in the United States. While many are concerned with the outcome of the election and how it will impact things like healthcare, national security, and taxes, we here at the SATURDAY SIX only care about the most important issue at stake: theme parks. We commissioned an all-star, blue ribbon panel made up of political experts, former imagineers, and futurists to give us a blueprint of what could happen. Unfortunately, none of them showed up. So instead we’re going to present to you OUR thoughts of what could happen to Walt Disney World depeHnding on how YOU vote on November 8th (although, for some of you the voting date is November 28th.) Whether you’re a shill for Hill or belong in a basket of deplorables, we have the result you don’t want to see. So sit back, proudly display your I Voted button, and let’s begin our countdown starting with…# 6 – IF TRUMP WINS: We’re going to build a WALL around EPCOT’s Mexico Pavilion and THEY’RE going to pay for itSorry La Cava, but we need to protect our borders….and Arendelle’s too. (photo by Daisy Lauren and  Matt Cleary)When Donald Trump announced his candidacy for President on June 16, 2015, he made a bold promise. “I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border. And I will have Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.” Donald himself has estimated this cost to be in the range of 10-12 billion dollars, while others have estimated it would be closer to 25 billion. With that type of money at stake, we’ll probably see Disney expand the monorail to the Port Orleans resorts before Mexico pays for this wall. However, a great way The Donald can save face is by actually building a wall around Mexico…the Mexico Pavilion at EPCOT! While it may be hard to get the actual Mexican government to write a check, we feel confident that we could shake a few pesos out of La Cava del Tequila and the Three Caballeros to get this done.–# 5 – IF CLINTON WINS: Princesses to switch their dresses for smart and stylish pantsuitsPrincess Power! (photo by Matt Cleary)A couple months ago there was a brouhaha in the Theme Park Universe because of something thought unfathomable by many Disney fans: the company changed Jasmine’s meet and greet outfit. For too long Disney Princesses have been forced to wear their iconic dresses no matter the occasion, and if we have our first woman in the White House it is high time to change that! No longer will Ariel cruelly be forced to wear scratchy sea shells as a top, because now the entire Disney Princess wardrobe will consist of smart and stylish pantsuits! As strong, courageous, and powerful women, each Disney Princess will rock these outfits like nobody’s business (attire.)–# 4 – IF TRUMP WINS: Walt Disney replaced in Partners Statue with shirtless Vladmir PutinOne of the most iconic cartoon characters in the world, known for making people laugh at his outrageous antics. Also pictured: Mickey Mouse. (photo by Brandon Glover and Matt Cleary)No one is going to deny Walt Disney’s place in history. However, it’s now 2016 and with Donald Trump as President it may be time to better represent America’s new “partnership” with Russia. Who better to guide us hand in hand through this new era of glasnost than a statue of a shirtless Vladmir Putin? Walt Disney still has a whole bunch of things at WDW commemorating him, including One Man’s Dream and…, well there’s probably more, but do you know who doesn’t have anything commemorating him at WDW? Vladmir Putin.–# 3 – IF CLINTON WINS: Hall of Presidents animatronic to have “public” position for Value Resort guests and “private” position for Deluxe Resort guestsSeeing the Hall of Presidents reminds us that it is the absolute best attraction in WDW… for an air conditioned break. (photo by Josh Abercrombie and Matt Cleary)President Clinton being awarded a check after her rousing speech on American philanthropy. (photo by Morgan Crutchfield and Matt Cleary)Over the course of the last year, many theme park fans – including the SATURDAY SIX itself – speculated on the idea of Donald Trump being added to the Hall of Presidents in the Magic Kingdom. Other than WDI having to triple their order of orange paint, that seems like an easy fit. But getting President Hillary Clinton into the HoP means a whole bunch of things have to change. Whereas the HoP now has the same show over and over again, President Clinton would need multiple shows to fully get across her various positions. Guests staying at Disney Value Resorts such as Pop Century will be invited to the “public” show, while guests staying at Disney Deluxe Resorts such as The Contemporary, will have access to the “private” show. Moderate Resort guests are an afterthought, but there’s a good chance they’ll soon be Value Resort guests anyway. The highlight of every performance is the show stopping finale where President Clinton is given a $200,000 check for her rousing speech.–# 2 – IF TRUMP WINS: Calling women “Miss Piggy” now a compliment!Donald Trump, Miss Piggy, former Miss Universe Alicia Machado.Disney has quietly been making a great resurgence with The Muppets. Over in EPCOT, the Muppet Mobile Lab with Beaker and Dr. Honeydew was brought back after spending years collecting dust. In the Magic Kingdom, the new Great Moments in American History with the Muppets is everything we wanted it to be, and more. We’re also just two weeks away from the Muppet-themed PizzeRizzo opening in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. With the Muppets now back in a major way in the theme park world, we can make a case that calling a woman “Miss Piggy” can now be seen as a compliment. As a woman (er, pig, but you know what we mean,) the actual Miss Piggy has many character traits that we admire. She is a strong woman filled with feminine charm, but also has no problem pulling out a karate chop when needed (“Hi-yah!“)–# 1 – IF CLINTON WINS: WikiLeaks Becomes the new home of the Disney Parks BlogClick to expandFor theme park fans, the concept of a President Hillary Clinton means one thing for sure, we’ll be getting all our latest Disney news via WikiLeaks! Co-run by Julian Assange and Steven Miller, the new and improved Disney Parks Blog will mix in the latest goings on at Disney parks around the world along with hacked emails from theme park bloggers on The Watch List. What that means is, after you read about the upcoming commemerative MagicBands for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, you can go straight to a covert email from noted rabble-rouser Andy Castro where he tells Guy Selga that he actually likes the Guardians of Galaxy overlay at Tower of Terror! Not shocking enough? What about a stolen email from Tom Bricker to Seth Kubersky which covered Tom’s concerns about TouringPlans’ own Rikki Niblett? In the email, Bricker urged Seth to  “stay on her” and “lock her in,” because if he did, “eventually [Rikki] will sound like a human.” That’s right, email after email proving once and for all that theme park bloggers – once seen as the pillars of society and at the highest level of all human achievement – are just like everyone else.Erase all your current bookmarks, because come November 9th, the Disney Parks Blog at its new home on WikiLeaks will be the only place to get your theme park news (literally.)–So there you have it: SATURDAY SIX 2016 Election Special: A look at how President Trump or Clinton could affect Walt Disney World. See you next weekend for the latest installment of the SATURDAY SIX, where we’ll look at something fun from the world of Disney and Universal.

You can’t make the same mistakes over and over again, and I realized that I have to learn from the others who are doing it right,” he said.“As a high school player, I know that what I’m working on isn’t enough so I’m motivating myself to reach the same level as to that of my teammates here who are already in college.”ADVERTISEMENT Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netIn the company of the best basketball players in the country, Will Gozum was left in awe in the company of the best basketball players in the country on Monday at Meralco Gym.“I was starstruck,” Gozum said in Filipino after working out with the big names like Troy Rosario, Japeth Aguilar, Mac Belo, and Carl Bryan Cruz.ADVERTISEMENT ‘A complete lie:’ Drilon refutes ‘blabbermouth’ Salo’s claims NCAA football: Arellano books finals slot, San Beda stays alive SEA Games: PH still winless in netball after loss to Thais MOST READ LeBron James trains Gilas Pilipinas PLAY LIST 02:46LeBron James trains Gilas Pilipinas00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games BeautyMNL open its first mall pop-up packed with freebies, discounts, and other exclusives Ethel Booba on hotel’s clarification that ‘kikiam’ is ‘chicken sausage’: ‘Kung di pa pansinin, baka isipin nila ok lang’center_img “I’m still feeling my way with the plays, trying to figure it out because they already have a smooth transition.

Virat Kohli reveals long-term ambition: Wanted to be one of the top players in the world

first_imgIndia captain Virat Kohli was honoured with the Polly Umrigar award at the Board of Control for Cricket in India annual awards ceremony on Wednesday. Kohli is the only Indian cricketer to receive this award three times. (Virat Kohli, R Ashwin receive awards in glittering BCCI ceremony)Kohli, upon receiving the award from former India wicket-keeper Farokh Engineer, thanked his teammates and acknowledged 2016 as the breakthrough year in his career. (Virat Kohli, Ravichandran Ashwin bag top honours at BCCI 2016-17 awards).@imVkohli receives the Polly Umrigar award #Naman pic.twitter.com/eLewm11UVa- BCCI (@BCCI) March 8, 2017″It’s been quite unbelievable, the last 10-12 months. As cricketers you always have a breakthrough year. Starting later 2015 to end of last year probably I could recall, you know, when I get older as the breakthrough year in my career. All the hard-work, all the training, on a daily basis all the sacrifices I think came together nicely,” Kohli said at the glittering awards ceremony which was held in Bengaluru.WATCH FULL VIDEO”Couldn’t have been possible without the help of my teammates. At times when you don’t do well is when champion players in your side step up. Everyone has been able to do that and that’s why we are the top side in the world. Its testimony to the kind of talent we have in the team. I thank all my teammates for the support, the trust and the effort. It’s a great honour receiving this for the third time,” he added.advertisementThe ceremony was conducted by former India all-rounder and Team Director Ravi Shastri, who also asked Kohli on what triggered off the spark in him that took his game to a different level.”I always wanted to be one of the top players in the world so I understood what it would take for me to maintain my form in all three formats. Its very important in the transitional phase to be available for all three formats. The kind of position the BCCI has put me in I’m very thankful of. I take it as an opportunity, I don’t take this as a job. I’ve been put in a place that I need to do the right things, set the right examples and follow a certain path that the whole team believes in.”My early days in my career as well there have been people who doubted the way I’ve gone about with my game. Even now there are doubters and haters all around. But one thing is for sure that I’ve always believed in myself, always believed in my heart that if I work hard 120% everyday of my life then I won’t be answerable to anyone,” Kohli said.The 28-year-old was on a roll last year amassing 1215 runs in 12 Tests at an average of over 75 including a record four double hundreds in consecutive series. He scored 739 runs in 10 ODIs at 92.37 with three hundreds and slammed 641 runs in 15 Twenty20 internationals at 106.83 with seven half-centuries to his name. He is the only batsman in the world who averages over 50 in all three formats of the game.last_img read more

MALENY OPENS THE DOOR FOR AUSTRALIAN OPEN MIXED TEAM

first_imgThe Maleny Touch Association at Witta was full to overflowing on Friday 24 November 2006 as the Sunshine Coast Affiliate played host to the 2007 Federation of International Touch World Cup Australian Open Mixed Team.The reigning World Cup Champions traveled from their 3-day training camp base in Brisbane to play an exhibition game against a Maleny President’s 14 team on Friday evening.The small country locality turned on the hospitality and out in force to greet the Australian Team who captivated the locals with their fleet of foot and sleight of hand in a slick performance that had the crowd on their feet.400 spectators lined the sidelines to see Touch Football at its best with the Australian Open Mixed Team turning on a sharp display against a local outfit led by Senior Men’s Queensland ‘A’ representative and Maleny President, Tim Evans.Evans led a host of enthusiastic young guns that relished the opportunity to play against the best the sport has to offer in this Country at Mixed Open level.Local Sunshine Coast Australian Mixed Open products Ben Roberts and Hayley Rogerson received big cheers, whilst Australian Mixed Co-Captain Tony Eltakchi held court as the “King of the Kids” and was equally popular amongst the mum’s who clamored for an autograph.The Australian Coaches spoke to the crowd and introduced the teams, provided commentary, explained the finer points of Mixed, and aspects of the 2007 Australian World Cup campaign. The biggest cheer of the night was reserved for the Maleny team who scored the town’s sole touchdown right on full time.The Aussie players were pleasantly besieged by a sea of kids requesting their autographs and one young lady, Nicole Sommer aged 12, who found herself without a pen and paper, was given the game ball signed by the Australian Mixed Open team.Nicole’s mother Maree, whose three children all play touch, was full of praise for the Australian Mixed Team and the game.“She loves touch, she has been playing it since she was four, and she has been looking forward to the Aussie Team coming for days. She is on cloud nine, and can’t believe her luck to be given the ball. I will probably have to pries the ball out of her hands when she falls asleep, she is that proud, it’s such a great gesture. The whole town is rapt to have you all here and we will be monitoring the World Cup results in January” Maree said.Australian Co-Captains Tony Eltakchi and Mary Steele were both interviewed after the game and spoke to the crowd about how impressed they were with the response from the locals.“This is excellent, thank-you all so much for coming out and showing your support. We have a tough job ahead of us to retain the World Title, but night’s like tonight make you appreciate the responsibility you have been given to represent your Country and your sport – it’s definitely been worth the travel and we hope to come back again one day.” Eltakchi said.Mary Steele was equally pleased by the town’s response.“Definitely unexpected, everyone has been great and the Maleny team fought hard and gave us a good run, you never know, we might see some of these youngsters in the green and gold in the future! It’s a great boost knowing that you have people in the sport behind you and willing you to do well. Let’s hope we can do the job for everyone.” Steele said.The “Little Big Men” of the Aussie Mixed team, Brad “BJ” Holden and Ben “Boozer” Mc Cullen were clear favourites with the crowd.Whilst standing on the sideline next to the “Tall Timber” of Ben Roberts and Matt Tope, Boozer and BJ drew an interesting comment from a diminutive young fan to his father: “Dad, those two ‘little boys’ there can play real good, there not much bigger than me, I could do that.”Thanks to “B1 and B2” The young man now has his heart set on playing in the Maleny Junior Touch competition… but no one had the heart to tell him that whilst Boozer and BJ might have been around his height, they were just a little too old to play in his age division!Maleny Junior Touch Coordinator Tony Yorkston, who was instrumental in bringing the Australian Team to Maleny, organized a post game dinner for the players and was delighted with the response from locals.“It has been wonderful, people from all the areas up this way are here tonight. We have never had a team of this calibre here before and it is a real privilege. The standard was something of an eye opener for us, and the Aussie team have been excellent ambassadors for the sport – we’d love to do this again in the future. It really brings grass-root level touch and the elite level together. Kids can see people like Hayley and Ben, people they see around the traps, get to this level and it doesn’t seem so far away. It’s just fantastic.”Yorkston said.The Australian Mixed Open Team’s foray to the country has opened the door for the possibility of taking National camps to affiliates across Australia in the future.The Australian Men’s Open camp will be conducted in Rockhampton in Central Queensland on 15-17 December and this is another opportunity for the game to showcase the sport at the highest level, but bring the excitement and build up to the World Cup to our affiliated members and raise the profile of the game in the general community.last_img read more

Photo: Someone Sprayed #BringBackBruce On Tennessee’s Famous Rock

first_imgTennessee rock spray painted with "Bring Back Bruce."The Rock is one of the major landmarks at the University of Tennessee. According to the UT Athletics website, for decades, students have painted the rock with messages ranging from “birth announcements to memorials, break-up messages to marriage proposals, protests of war to messages of peace, celebration of Vol victories to expressions of, shall we say, disappointment.”Apparently , at least one Tennessee student decided to use The Rock as a personal billboard to advocate the return of former men’s basketball coach Bruce Pearl. Pearl enjoyed a successful six-year tenure in Knoxville from 2006-11, before being fired for numerous NCAA infractions. He is currently the head coach of Auburn University. The Vols are in the market for a new head coach after Donnie Tyndall was fired this week for…NCAA violations. Our amateur artist feels Pearl’s track record (at least the positive parts of it) make him the perfect replacement for Tyndall.#BringBackBruce on the rock @coachbrucepearl #VFL pic.twitter.com/QhYzgObwxb— Brandon Carpenter (@bcarp49) March 28, 2015last_img read more
