Lawrence, president of Raytheon Missile Systems. “The SM-3’s highly successful test performance gives combatant commanders around the world the confidence they need to counter the growing ballistic missile threat.”In 2009, the administration announced the U.S. decision to adopt a new, more flexible approach to missile defense of both the U.S. and Europe. The Phased Adaptive Approach (PAA) Phase 1 began in March 2011 when the USS Monterey deployed carrying SM-3 Block IAs.“The SM-3 program’s evolution speaks to the importance of harnessing past successes to deliver increasingly capable systems to our customers, while reducing costs and delivery timelines,” said Dr. Mitch Stevison, Raytheon’s Standard Missile-3 program director.In Oct. 2013, ground broke in Romania on the first operational Aegis Ashore site, which will be capable of launching SM-3 Block IAs, IBs and IIAs. The site continues on track for 2015 deployment as part of PAA Phase 2. Along with deployed Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense ships, Romania’s Aegis Ashore site will provide additional ballistic missile coverage of NATO countries. The first Aegis Ashore test with the SM-3 Block IB and upgraded Aegis BMD Weapons System will take place this year at the Pacific Missile Range Facility, Kauai, Hawaii.[mappress]Press Release, April 23, 2014; Image: Raytheonlast_img read more

Watch moe. Cover “Winter Wonderland”

first_imgThis year has been a tough one for Rob Derhak and the rest of the members of moe. following Derhak’s diagnosis of cancer during the summer, forcing a number of the group’s tour dates to be canceled. However, after the recent happy announcement that Derhak is now cancer-free following his treatment, the group has slowly been rolling out new tour dates for 2018, including at iconic venues such as The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York; Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado; and the group’s annual Memorial Day-weekend mecca to Summer Camp in Chillicothe, Illinois.As moe. gears up to get back on the road, yesterday, the group, minus Jim Loughlin, posted a video of their take on the classic holiday tune “Winter Wonderland”, which was originally written in 1934 by Felix Bernard and Richard B. Smith. For the cover, Derhak takes on the duty of vocal leads. You can enjoy the cover below.[Video: gotmoe]last_img read more

Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Shares Pro-Shot Video Of “Terrapin”-Infused “Morning Dew” From St. Louis [Watch]

first_imgJoe Russo’s Almost Dead has shared a new pro-shot video as part of their semi-regular “RAD Tracks” series. The latest selection comes from the band’s second of two performances at St. Louis, MO’s The Pageant on February 16th, when they closed their second set with a powerful rendition of “Morning Dew” complete with a delicate duo jam by guitarist/vocalist Tom Hamilton and keyboardist Marco Benevento incorporating elements of “Terrapin Station” as a callback to the “Terrapin” suite player earlier in the set.The “Morning Dew” > “Terrapin/Dew Jam” > “Morning Dew” segment showcases JRAD’s dynamic dexterity in no uncertain terms. While they’re perhaps best known for their high-energy, technically complex musical fireworks, this clip shows off the more delicate side of the fan-favorite Grateful Dead tribute act’s abilities. At their best, “Morning Dew” and “Terrapin” were among the most moving selections from the Dead’s live repertoire, and JRAD’s fusion of the two anthems paid off handsomely in this performance. Check out the video below:Joe Russo’s Almost Dead – “Morning Dew” > “Terrapin/Dew Jam” > “Morning Dew” [Pro-Shot][Video: Produced, Directed, Shot by Sean Smith]The new live video release came along with the announcement that Joe Russo’s Almost Dead will offer pay-per-view webcasts of their upcoming shows in Albany (March 1st) and Portland (March 2nd, March 3rd).

Understanding student weaknesses

first_imgIf you had to explain what causes the change in seasons, could you? Surprisingly, studies have shown that as many as 95 percent of people — including most college graduates — hold the incorrect belief that the seasons are the result of the Earth moving closer to or further from the sun.The real answer, scientists say, is that as Earth’s axis is tilted with respect to its orbit, when on its journey it is angled inward, the sun rises higher in the sky, and that results in more direct sunlight, longer days, and warmer temperatures. Distance plays no role; we are actually closest to the sun in the dead of winter, during the first week of January.Why do so many people continue to hold the wrong idea? The answer, said Philip Sadler, the Frances W. Wright Senior Lecturer in the Department of Astronomy and director of the science education department at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA), may be found in what science teachers know.As part of an unusual study, Sadler and colleagues tested 181 middle school physical science teachers and nearly 10,000 of their students, and showed that while most of the teachers were well-versed in their subject, those better able to predict their students’ wrong answers on standardized tests helped students learn the most. The findings are described in a paper published last month in the American Educational Research Journal titled “The Influence of Teachers’ Knowledge on Student Learning in Middle-School Physical Science Classrooms.”“What our research group found was that for the science that people considered factual, teacher knowledge was very important. If the teachers didn’t know the facts, they couldn’t convey them to the students,” Sadler said. “But for the kinds of questions that measure conceptual understanding, even if the teacher knew the scientific explanation, that wasn’t enough to guarantee that their students would actually learn the science.”Sadler pointed to the question of what happens to a lamp when the power cord is squeezed.“Middle school students say if you squeeze hard you will see the light gets dimmer, even though they’ve stepped on that cord before, or they’ve put the corner of their chair on that cord before, and nothing has happened,” he said. “Their theoretical understanding of the way the world works includes the idea that electricity is like water flowing through a garden hose. If you put some pressure on the cord, you will get less electricity out the other end. It turns out that for most major scientific concepts, kids come into the classroom — even in middle school — with a whole set of beliefs that are commonly at odds with what scientists, and their science teachers, know to be true.”If teachers are to help students change their incorrect beliefs, they first need to know what those are. That’s where the standardized tests developed by Sadler and his colleagues come in. Multiple-choice answers were gleaned from hundreds of research studies examining students’ ideas, particularly those that are common — such as electricity behaving like water.For the study described in their paper, Sadler and his colleagues asked teachers to answer each question twice, once to give the scientifically correct answer, and the second time to predict which wrong answer their students were likeliest to choose. Students were then given the tests three times throughout the year to determine whether their knowledge improved.The results showed that students’ scores showed the most improvement when teachers were able to predict their students’ wrong answers.“Nobody has quite used test questions before in this way,” Sadler said. “What I had noticed, even before we did this study, was that the most amazing science teachers actually know what their students’ wrong ideas are. It occurred to us that there might be a way to measure this kind of teacher knowledge easily without needing to spend long periods of time observing teachers in their classrooms.”To help teachers hone this knowledge, Sadler and his colleagues have made the kind of tests used in their study publicly available. More than a dozen tests covering kindergarten through grade 12 are downloadable here, after completing a tutorial on their development and interpretation.Going forward, Sadler said he hopes to conduct similar studies in the life sciences, particularly around concepts such as evolution and heredity. He also plans to study what types of professional development and new teacher preparation programs help improve instructors’ facility in knowing what their students know.Ultimately, Sadler said, he hopes teachers will be able to use the tests to help design lessons that change students’ incorrect ideas and help them learn science more quickly and easily. This is particularly important as states adopt the recently released Next Generation Science Standards.“State certification for teaching science might well include making sure that new teachers are aware of the common student misconceptions that they will encounter, as well as being proficient in the underlying science,” said Sadler. “Prior to this, there has never been an easy way to measure teachers’ knowledge of student thinking, while we have probably been placing too much emphasis on testing for advanced scientific knowledge.“Everyone has had a teacher or professor who is incredibly knowledgeable about their field, yet some of them are less-than-stellar teachers,” he continued. “One of the reasons for this is that teachers can be unaware of what is going on in their students’ heads, even though they may have had exactly the same ideas when they were students themselves. Knowledge of student misconceptions is a critical tool for science teachers. It can help teachers to decide which demonstration to do in class, and to start the lesson by asking students to predict what’s going to happen. If a teacher doesn’t have this special kind of knowledge, though, it’s nearly impossible to change students’ ideas.“The best teachers base their lessons on what the American humorist-philosopher Will Rogers observed: It ain’t what they don’t know that gives them trouble, it’s what they know that ain’t so.”Funding for this research was provided by the National Science Foundation.last_img read more

Group reviews bike shop

Members of Campus Life Council (CLC) reviewed a resolution Monday proposing the revival of the Campus Bike Shop. The resolution specifies the bike shop would aim to provide a sustainable model for students to access free repair services using salvaged parts from abandoned and damaged bikes. John Sanders, residence life director for student government, said the resolution was a response to the Dec. 31 closure of the bike shop. He said the Design department moved into the space where the shop was previously housed. “In some way, shape or form, the idea is to keep [the bike shop] a free service, as well as sustainable,” he said. “The University loses something by losing the bike shop.” The shop, which used unclaimed bike parts collected by Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP), requires approximately $7,000 a year from its budget, Sanders said. The costs cover the price of tools, special-order bike parts and standard wages for student technicians. “It’s mostly a matter of space on campus,” Sanders said. “[But] it’s becoming a matter of budget as well now because NDSP has revised their budgeting for the year since [the bike shop closed].” Sister Carrine Etheridge, rector of Farley Hall, said a bike auction could generate money for the shop. “They used to just auction [bikes] off,” she said. “You would pay a certain amount and then you’d have a tier of bikes you could choose from. That’s one answer to any funding problems.” Student body president Pat McCormick said CLC will vote on the resolution next Monday. Members of CLC also discussed possible spaces in which to reopen the shop. Sanders said advocates are considering a space behind Stepan Center. “There’s the option of using the back restroom of Stepan,” he said. “It’s a disaster, but they’re cleaning it out right now. The problem is how long are we going to have Stepan?” McCormick said the resolution could represent student advocacy and make it easier for students to access a bike repair shop. “Our concern is many students, particularly freshmen and sophomores, have no means of going off campus except a taxi,” he said. “The resolution could serve as a way to indicate how we could continue a bike shop that has been a service to students and staff over the past few years.” Sanders said comments and questions can be sent to [email protected],Members of Campus Life Council (CLC) reviewed a resolution Monday proposing the revival of the Campus Bike Shop.

Love Elementary School Students Receive Treats From Retired Educator

Colquitt, or Grandma Susie as she is called, only asked that students do something nice for others that only requires a little of their time during the holiday season – she calls it “Playing it Forward.” She also included a PowerPoint presentation and an upbeat, positive letter for each classroom. Colquitt knitted 219 scarfs for Love students.Love Elementary School fourth grader Aaliyah Rivera wearing a scarf donated by Susan Colquitt.“When Grandma Susie first contacted us about her plan for us, we had no idea of the magnitude of her gift,” said Love Elementary School Principal Connie Foster. “When the three huge boxes arrived with the beautiful scarves, the gift bags, candy, pencils, erasers, the letters to the children and the beautiful PowerPoint story, we were overwhelmed. And the fact that she lives on the other side of the country in New Mexico and chose us as the recipient of her kindness and HOURS of loving tenacity, just added to the mystique. The students were so delighted to receive their scarves. I hope they will use them this winter when they are walking to and from school as well as when they’re outside building snowmen and sledding down hills. I hope they will remember this gift and her charge to each of them to ‘play it forward’ with an act of service toward someone else. And (secretly), I hope that someday I can be an awe-inspiring Grandma Susie, too.”Love Elementary School fourth grader Jabez Elvira wearing a scarf donated by Susan Colquitt.As it turns out, there was a local connection. Colquitt and Persell Middle School teacher, Annika Putney, were both Fulbright Teachers in Japan 14 years ago. They have kept in touch over the years and when Colquitt asked Putney about local elementary schools, Love School became the focus of her goodwill. Mrs. Colquitt has been spreading cheer for the past seven holiday seasons to various elementary schools across the country. “It is my hope that this holiday surprise will be positively received and that your extraordinary students will have an opportunity to understand and embrace the timeless theme of, ‘Playing it Forward,’” said Colquitt. “It has truly been an honor and privilege to celebrate the awesome, amazing and extraordinary students attending Love School.”The kids were so excited with their surprise.“Grandma Susie showed a tremendous amount of kindness to me by making me a scarf,” said Love fourth grader Aaliyah Rivera. “I am going to ‘play it forward’ by helping a homeless man. By my house, there is a homeless man on the streets. I can help him by giving him food or money. My sister sometimes helps with the homeless so instead of my parents helping her, I can help her. I can also help by doing chores around the house.”last_img read more

One-way traffic starts tomorrow on bridge from Vermont to New York

first_imgThe New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) has announced that, as a result of a bridge inspection completed earlier this year, repairs will be made to the Lake Champlain Bridge, also known as the Crown Point Bridge, spanning Lake Champlain between Crown Point, New York and Chimney Point, Vermont.Work will incorporate the use of a temporary signal system to control one-way, alternating traffic operations anticipated to begin on Friday, July 3. Motorists may encounter significant travel delays.During the inspection, completed in June 2009, several areas of steel deterioration to the bridge s truss system were discovered. The weight posting on the bridge will also be reduced to 40 tons, the legal maximum load on a New York State bridge without a special permit. Legally-loaded tractor trailers will be permitted to use the bridge; however, overweight vehicles will be prohibited.Built in 1929, the bridge consists of 14 spans totaling 2,184 feet. It is made up of a combination of a thru-truss, deck-truss and deck plate girders. It accommodates approximately 3,400 vehicles per average day.A project to either rehabilitate or replace the bridge is being progressed by both NYSDOT and the Vermont Agency of Transportation under an agreement between the states. The current project schedule calls for construction to begin in 2013.last_img read more
