Peach Music Festival to Return in 2015 Without The Allman Brothers Band

first_imgWith its main headliner and co-host having recently taken their final bow with a stellar run at the Beacon Theatre this past October, it has been on everyone’s mind as to whether or not the Peach Music Festival would be back in the wake of the Allman Brothers Band‘s final performance. Warren Haynes recently fielded some questions about the topic, but would not give any answer.Today, festival organizers revealed that the Peach would be returning to its home at Montage Mountain in Scranton, PA from August 13th-16th. No artists have been announced as of yet, but it looks as if Gregg Allman will be on board with his band.Check out L4LM’s Top Musical Moments from the 2014 Peach Music Festival here. Early-Bird tickets for the fest go on sale Monday, Dec. 22nd at Noon ET.Here is an official statement from the festival’s Facebook page:last_img read more

Kalinago residents benefit from nutrition training

first_img Share 246 Views   no discussions LocalNews Kalinago residents benefit from nutrition training by: – October 13, 2014 Sharing is caring! Tweetcenter_img Share Share Participants of the 6-week trainingFifteen residents of the Kalinago Territory are now better able to prepare healthy meals for their families following a six-week training programme in nutrition.The programme, which was a partnership between the Ministry of Health, Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and the Carib Council, began in July.Nutritionist at the Ministry of Health Marynese Titre, who facilitated the training, told the graduation ceremony on October 9, 2014, that it was geared at improving the health of the residents.Mrs Titre noted that the challenge of society to engage in healthy life practices which includes the consumption of nutritious foods, regular physical activity and decrease in tobacco and alcohol use continue to be of great concern to health personnel and others. “Therefore, the training of trainers programme was conducted to strengthen the capacity of the Kalinago population, to improve their own health through behavior modification”.During the programme, the participants were engaged in teaching and learning activities outlined in topics like prevention and management of Diabetes, the importance of serving sizes, the knowledge of the six food groups in the Caribbean, their sources, their nutritive value and deficiencies related to them, meal planning and preparation using the multi-mix principle, feeding the preschool child with specific emphasis on healthy snacks.Mrs Titre said learning by doing was another strategy used in the training, hence the participants were engaged in developing cooking skills.“The best part is always the tasting, but the emphasis was on using locally available foods, especially those available in the Carib Territory and secondly, preparing healthy and nutritious dishes”.Mrs Titre informed that the programme “was not without its challenges but the fact that we are here today is testimony that we have overcome and realized our objectives”.Meanwhile, one of the participants of the training said she is proud to have participated in such a beneficial programme.“Most important to us was that we learned how to use local foods in our environment in new and exciting ways”.“For example, we learned how to make farine pudding, banana fritters, fruit and vegetable kebabs, delicious fruit puffs and fruit punch. We were always reminded to use less sugar, salt and fat in our cooking to help in the fight against NCDs,” the female participant said.Ms Viville thanked the Ministry of Health, PAHO and the Carib Council for organizing the programme and said they are happy to share the information they have received.“Today we are happy to be graduating but most important to us is that we are better equipped to make healthier food choices, prepare nutritious snacks for our children, advise others on how alcohol and tobacco, not only affect the individual, but the family and community at large, that Diabetes is a disease that can be prevented and no matter how small a step we make, that’s the first step of physical activity which is the most important at keeping us healthy and active,” the participant stated. – / 13Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Multi-Beam, Reconfigurable, Phased-Array Antenna Solution for Next-Gen Satellites

first_imgThinKom Solutions has released a new phased-array antenna solution for efficient and effective land-based gateways designed to accommodate current and next-generation low-Earth-orbit (LEO) and medium-Earth-orbit (MEO) satellite constellations. The new gateway concept, which ThinKom describes as an “array of arrays,” will provide a superior alternative to the large “antenna farms” of parabolic dishes currently used for support of geostationary (GEO) satellites. It is based on ThinKom’s proven phased-array antenna technology, which is currently in use on over 1,300 commercial aircraft installations worldwide, in 10M+ hours of proven high-reliability operation.Limitations of Dish-Based Gateways for LEO Networks Current-generation gateways employ large parabolic dishes which are necessarily limited to one link per dish. Further, they are unable to repoint quickly to a different satellite, given their complex drive mechanisms. These legacy systems are large, heavy, expensive to install and maintain, and can take months to deploy. Additionally, they are adversely affected by wind, snow, and ice loading and typically require a substantial concrete foundation or reinforcement of roof structure to support the weight and uplift forces of several thousand kilograms resulting from even moderate wind conditions. These multi-dish gateway sites must allow for sufficient separation in order to avoid dish-to-dish blockages, often requiring a relatively large swath of real estate (as illustrated below). New Paradigm: An Array of Arrays ThinKom’s approach uses multiple, tightly arranged, phased-array antennas, which are coherently (and reconfigurably) combined. The antenna units work together to track multiple LEO, MEO and GEO satellites simultaneously with look angles between 5 and 90 degrees in elevation and full 360-degree coverage in azimuth. The software-defined system is reconfigurable in that a single array is capable of supporting multiple links, modifying the number of beams and radiation properties dynamically to meet the link budget and throughput demands of the ever-changing number of satellites in view. It does all this without the high-power consumption of electronically scanned arrays, which is a critical feature in areas that rely on solar power or are otherwise energy-constrained due to geographic location. The array, to be initially deployed in S-band and X-band operation (with higher frequencies brought online as the market demands), is constructed in a fixed convex shape in order to provide maximum low-elevation coverage and minimize signal blockage while promoting the shedding of rain and snow. The visual signature of an array is less than two meters tall serving to eliminate the effects of high wind conditions and the footprint for a typical array (equivalent to eight 2.4-meter dishes or three 4.5-meter dishes or any mixed combination) occupies less than seven square meters, uniquely enabling flexible deployment in areas with limited real estate, such as rooftop locations.Click here to learn more about ThinKom.last_img read more
