Indian Navy performs maiden trials of new DSRV

first_imgIndia’s Western Naval Command recently started the maiden trials of the country’s newly-delivered deep submergence rescue vehicle (DSRV).Delivered by UK-based James Fisher Defence (JFD) as part of a £193 million contract from 2016, the DSRV represents a new specialist capability for the Indian Navy.The navy will receive two such systems, both operated by a crew of three and capable of rescuing 14 personnel from a disabled submarine at one time.According to the Indian Navy, the DSRV carried out underwater mating with a bottomed submarine, at over 300 feet depth, in a test on October 15. On successful mating the DSRV opened its hatches and the submarine hatches and carried out transfer of personnel from the submarine to the DSRV.“These sea trials have proven the newly inducted DSRV’s ability to undertake rescue operations from disabled submarines at sea and has provided the Indian Navy with a critical capability,” the navy said.During the trials the DSRV also dived successfully up to 666 m. This is a record for deepest submergence by a ‘manned vessel’ in Indian waters. The DSRV crew has also carried out ROV operations at over 750 meters and Side Scan Sonar operations at over 650 meters, which are all ‘firsts’ for the Indian Navy.The ongoing trials will also include air transportation of the system by the IAF’s heavy-lift transport aircraft.The DSAR class SRV is capable of diving with a crew of 3 and up to 17 rescuees, while the medical hyperbaric complex can treat and decompress up to 90 personnel at any one time. The launch and recovery system has been designed to handle the SRV in conditions up to and including sea state 6, while a pair of self-contained generators are capable of providing a fully redundant electrical supply to the entire system.

Lincoln chapel desecrated by ex-student

first_imgA former student of Lincoln College entered the college’s chapel,disrupted the altar dressing and shouted  abuse at the choir who were rehearsing. The incidienttook place at around 4pm last Sunday.Choir member Helena Wilde said thatthe woman “suddenly stormed in, looking very angry and purposeful”. Shecontinued, “She walked straight past us towards the altar, so we all assumedshe was a chapel warden, perhaps coming to set up for evensong.”The woman’s behaviour started to arousethe suspicion of the choir as she proceeded to noisily rearrange the candles andthe cross which were placed on the altar, before throwing them and the altarcloth onto the chapel pulpit. She then approached an electric keyboard in themiddle of the chapel which Senior Organ Scholar Paul Wingfield was using forthe rehearsal.Wilde recalled that she “bangedher hands down on the keyboard to make a terrible sound then shouted ‘My parentsgot married in this chapel’”. As she left through the antechapel the womanclosed the heavy wooden inner chapel doors, which normally remain open at alltimes. She said “Burn in Hell, you Catholic” to the Organ Scholar who was bythe organ in the antechapel at the time. She then slammed the outer chapeldoors.Fourth year Lincoln chorister Johnny Shipley followed thewoman out of the chapel to the front entrance of the college, where she wasattempting to shut the main college doors behind her. Shipley said that hetried to “reason with her” but she responded with confused comments, including theremark “Where’s Oliver Cromwell when you need a war?”The conversation continued on Turl Street, whereher comments to Shipley indicated that she was a former Lincoln student. “She said something aboutnot being allowed to sit Finals, and something about  medication,” Shipley said. The woman, who someof the members of choir estimated to be in her mid-twenties, also revealed heridentity when asked by Shipley.Lincoln College declined to disclose theidentity of the woman in the interests of her personal welfare. The woman hadtried to gain entrance to Lincolnat around 9.30pm on Saturday night. She asked at the porter’s lodge if shecould enter the chapel but, as it was after visiting hours, she was deniedentry. When she returned the following afternoon, porter Rohan Ramdeen said hehad no reason to suspect her intentions and allowed her to enter. Thecollege porters have now been made aware of the woman’s identity and willrefuse her entry if she attempts to make further visits to the college. Lincoln JCR President Ollie Munn said,“I was obviously concerned for the students involved but it seems that no one was hurt and thatnothing was badly damaged.” Choir members described the incident as  surreal” and Wilde admitted that they “wereall quite scared when it happened”. Chaplain George  Westhaver said that he did not think theincident had been “a cause of lasting distress” and confirmed that no chargesare being levelled against the woman as she did “no damage at all”. He added “puttingthings back in place took two minutes.”ARCHIVE: 3rd week MT 2005last_img read more

47 proposals win Hauser grants

first_imgThe Harvard Initiative for Learning and Teaching (HILT) announced today that 47 proposals from the University community will receive a total of nearly $2 million in the inaugural round of Hauser Fund grants.The grants aim to promote effective teaching and learning by funding pedagogical activities that are innovative, evidence-based, and extendable across varied academic settings. Individual and group awards of up to $50,000 (with exceptions for larger, high-impact proposals with decanal support) are being given to faculty, students, and staff across the University.“Harvard’s learning and teaching initiative has generated enthusiasm across the University,” President Drew Faust said. “I am grateful to the more than 200 faculty, staff, and students who submitted proposals seeking to advance innovative teaching, and pleased that Hauser funds will support 47 projects bringing new ideas and practices to enhance the educational experience at Harvard.”The funded proposals aim to transform students’ educational experiences through methods and teaching tools that promote effective learning. Projects include participation from every Harvard School and cover a broad range of activities, from developing experimental, interactive classroom space to supporting experiential learning through course design and revolutionary academic technologies.“We’ve been impressed by the creative ideas generated through this process,” said HILT Director Erin Driver-Linn. “These grants have already begun to serve our broader goals of engagement and experimentation, and we are thrilled to support and document these exciting projects over the coming year.”The awards are an initial phase in a multiyear grant program. Applications and awards will be used to inform and prepare for subsequent elements of the larger program and the initiative overall.HILT received more than 250 letters of intent from the Harvard community last November for funding in 2012-13. A nine-member, cross-School faculty selection committee evaluated all letters of intent and full proposals, and provided recommendations to the president and provost.HILT, a University-wide presidential initiative launched through a $40 million gift from Rita E. and Gustave M. Hauser, aims to catalyze innovation in higher learning and expand Harvard’s leadership in the research, application, and assessment of innovative pedagogy in Cambridge and around the world. The initiative hosted a daylong symposium in February that brought together authorities and scholars from the University and beyond to debate, discuss, and share ideas in the field.View the list of projects funded by the Hauser Fund grants.last_img read more

OIT releases print quota data

first_imgNotre Dame’s Office of Information Technology (OIT), in conjunction with student government, released their Fall 2014 PrintND Report that highlights some of the key data on student printing in light of the printing quota controversy presented last semester.According to the report, 90 percent of undergraduates print fewer than 1,000 pages per semester and 90 percent of graduate students print fewer than 1,500 pages without need for additional quota.Emily Danaher | The Observer Junior Shuyang Li, student government’s director of campus technology, said findings were based on data that OIT collected from the printing systems on campus and reflects the information OIT has recollected from student printing and printer usage on campus.“At the beginning of this semester, we had a meeting with OIT to review printing metrics from last semester, and OIT provided us with all the data that came into the report,” Li said.Li said student government attempted to monitor the new system throughout the past semester and has been in constant communication regarding the print quota changes with campus technology throughout the year.“At the beginning of last semester, student government and senate formed a five-student team to get involved with and monitor the new printing system,” Li said. “We had monthly meetings with OIT as well as internal meetings to discuss what was good and not so good with the new printing system and to see how much students were using the new system.”The new print quota system was implemented last semester in response to the financial deficit OIT faced with student printing, which totaled to more than $80,000. Li said OIT is still managing other changes in the new printing systems including the streamlining of the printing queues across campus, the transition towards the point system, issues with one-sided and double-sided printing and quota rollover across semesters.Li said student government’s frequent communication with OIT addressed changes to the new quota system, such as the issues of the price raise for one-sided printing. While OIT initially implemented an increase in one-sided printing as opposed to double-sided printing, student government negotiated a return to equal pricing in one sided and double sided printing, Li said.“We thought [the change in price for single-sided printing] would be bad for students and had several discussions with OIT and pushed to change it back to the same [system],” Li said.Li acknowledged that although the Print ND Report indicated lower printing quota usage, members of student senate expressed their constituents’ complaints about the the quota’s relatively lowered limit and the elimination of rollover print quota from year to year.“There were three senators on the team who went out to their dorms heard other opinions as well,” Li said. “We heard a lot of student opinions that weren’t satisfied with the new system.”Li said OIT has not indicated to student government officials that any additional changes will be made to the print quota system.“I’m trying to make sure that everything we communicate to students at this point is accurate,” Li said.Tags: campus technology, OIT, print quota, printer, Printing, Student governmentlast_img read more

Caitlin O’Connell & More Will Star in The Killing of Sister George Off-Broadway

first_img The Killing of Sister George will feature sets and costumes by Narelle Sissons, lights by Mary Louise Geiger, and sound and original music by Daniel Kluger.  In The Killing of Sister George, gin-swilling, cigar-chomping June Buckridge (O’Connell) plays the beloved Sister George on the popular BBC Radio drama, Applehurst. When it looks like BBC executives might kill off Sister George to raise ratings, June’s precarious personal world heads into a tailspin. The drama was first produced in England in 1964, with a cast that included Beryl Reid and Eileen Atkins. The production transferred to Broadway in 1965, garnering a Tony award for Reid and a nod for Atkins. The 1968 film adaptation starred Reid, Susannah York and Coral Browne. View Comments Show Closed This production ended its run on Nov. 1, 2014 Related Shows Caitlin O’Connell (Mothers and Sons) will star alongside Cynthia Harris (Lost in Yonkers), Darrie Lawrence (Tales From Red Vienna) and Margot White (The Farnsworth Invention) in the first New York revival of Frank Marcus’ The Killing of Sister George.
