View post tag: Navantia Navantia a step closer to fixing Spanish submarine’s weight problem Spanish shipbuilder Navantia on April 6 informed that it has completed extending the pressure hull on the first Spanish Navy S80 submarine, a move that should prevent the submarines from sinking to the ocean floor.Back in 2013, media reported that the Spanish Navy’s fleet of S80 submarines was faced with serious delays as it turned out the submarines were 70 tones too heavy to be able to float at all.Navantia, the prime contractor for the submarine program then brought in outside expertise to help deal with this problem.Part of the solution was to extend the pressure hull of the air independent propulsion (AIP) submarine that was originally intended to be delivered by 2018.However, a definitive redesign of the submarine is still not completed despite of Spanish defense officials’ claims it would be ready by 2015-end.Navantia said it would be working on the CDR (Critical Design Review) of the first submarine, the S81 Plus, throughout this year.The submarines are built under a 2004 contract between the Spanish government and Navantia (former IZAR). Four submarines were expected to cost around €1,756m to design and build, but by 2010 this had increased to €2,212m (US$700m/boat).How much the redesign efforts will add to the final submarine cost remains to be seen.

This year Openstack Summit 2016 is taking place in downtown Austin, just a few miles down the highway from our Round Rock headquarters, and once again we are very excited to be attending and talking about all the many ways we are collaborating with customers and partners to develop agile, flexible, and open solutions. Just some of what we’re featuring in Booth #D6 includes:Red Hat partnership highlightsFrom virtualization and cloud to enterprise IT optimization and performance, our co-engineered solutions blend the best of Red Hat technology with Dell’s customer-driven innovation, leading to solutions and services that address real-world needs.Dell Extreme Scale Infrastructure solutionsOur Datacenter Scalable Solutions (DSS) offerings, together with the Data Center Solutions (DCS) team, are focused on the unique needs of hyperscale and sub-hyperscale customers. Come see our solutions in action in the booth, including the extremely powerful DSS 9000.Network Functions VirtualizationOpenStack Summit draws a slew of IT professionals from the telecommunications community, where NFV has been gaining serious momentum. As a leader in both SDN and x86 technologies, and thanks to some key partnerships, Dell has been paving the way with OpenStack powered NFV solutions for telecommunications providers, cable operators and mobile operators.Not to be missed: Sessions and PanelsThe Dell team will be participating in a number of panels and sessions over the course of the conference. Here’s a handy list for your reference:Monday, April 25 Performance Measuring Tools for the CloudThe exponential growth of cloud computing services has given rise to the need for standards, specifications and workloads that can be used to evaluate the performance of various cloud offerings. This panel of cloud performance professionals from Dell Red Hat, Intel and AWcloud will focus on the various tools that have been developed to measure the Cloud and how they are being used for OpenStack Cloud implementations.Cross release themes: UpdateAs part of the OpenStack planning process, the development teams have started tracking tasks that will span across multiple 6-month cycles. The list of “Themes” was presented to the community at the Tokyo summit. In this session, we will provide an update on the status of these epics as for the Mitaka release and will update the plans for Newton and Ocata.Cinder Project UpdateDuring Mitaka, the Cinder team has made progress in various areas. In this panel session, we will provide an update on what has been accomplished in Mitaka and also discuss what may be coming in the Newton release.Tuesday, April 26Enabling, managing and orchestrating workloads in an OpenStack environmentA look at how Dell, Intel and AMI worked together on an OpenStack technology demonstration to help companies stand up, manage and orchestrate infrastructure at scale. By coupling hyperscale-inspired infrastructure running Redfish, Intel Rack Scale Architecture, AMI Pod Manager with an open-source software layer, this session will talk about our experiences and observations enabling this functionality, with a look at the challenges and pain points we ran into along the way.Three’s Company: Are you Jack, Janet, or Chrissy? How teams can work together to create better OpenStack solutionsWhen Dell realized a need to extend the Dell Red Hat OpenStack Cloud Solution to bring in a “highly available overlay network provider”, they turned to Midokura Enterprise MidoNet. How did Dell and Red Hat then bring Midokura to the table, encouraging all the different teams to work towards one single goal, to produce a “joint multi-partner solution” and deliver the solution in a timely fashion?How to strike a balance/align between your community work and your employer’s objectives in OpenStackMany of us work for a vendor, operator, or academic/research organization which has a significant role in the OpenStack ecosystem. We often face the challenge of managing our time and effort between community work and our day job. This panel will share experiences and provide recommendations on how to effectively contribute to the community while meeting our employers’ goals and objectives in OpenStack.Developing a Policy-driven, Platform-aware and DevOps-friendly Nova SchedulerThe presenters will outline the development of a policy-driven scheduler that allows the Nova administrator (as well as Nova tenant administrators) to control placement decisions by writing policy statements that dictate which VMs or containers can be placed on which hosts. The DevOps-friendly, policy-driven scheduler plugs into the existing scheduler framework, to enable people to easily and quickly express custom scheduling rules and constraints, and at the same time provide assurances related to performance, security, and data integrity.Performance Measuring with SPEC Cloud (Dell + RedHat)SPEC Cloud is a new benchmark standard for measuring and characterizing cloud offerings. What is this tool measuring and assessing? Can the results be trusted? This session will explore in detail the emerging SPEC Cloud standard. Learn how performance is measured using SPEC Cloud and how cloud solutions can be optimized to meet the conditions of the Service Level Agreements (SLA) and various performance requirements.**********OpenStack Summit is a fantastic community event, and we can’t wait to see you in person next week.

In years past, students who stayed at Saint Mary’s over fall break or the Thanksgiving holiday were left without on-campus dining options. Instead, they had to stock up on groceries and feed themselves with dorm-friendly foods. This year, however, Saint Mary’s offered several dinners for students, who could sign up if they were staying over the break. About 50 students signed up for these dinners, vice president of student affairs Karen Johnson said. Johnson said the Sisters of the Holy Cross hosted a Thanksgiving dinner for students Thursday night, as well as Christmas tree decorating with pizza Friday and another meal Saturday. “We truly appreciate the Sisters of the Holy Cross helping us out,” Johnson said in an email.The idea to provide dinners for students who stayed on campus for break came from the Saint Mary’s Student Diversity Board. During the transition from former College President Jan Cervelli to Interim College President Nancy Nekvasil in early October, Nekvasil met with both the student body as a whole and Student Diversity Board to discuss next steps and address student concerns. Junior and president of Student Diversity Board Bella Tillman said students came to the group to express the difficulty they faced in finding meals while on campus during breaks. This complaint inspired the group to work to provide for students that spend their break at the College. “We were made aware of the fact that a bunch of girls didn’t have anywhere to go during breaks, but also our dining hall is closed,” Tillman said. “So they aren’t getting anything to eat because they have nowhere else to go, so we decided to try and start serving meals over breaks.”Student Diversity Board raised the issue with Nekvasil at her town hall with the Board following her appointment as Interim President, Tillman said. The group met with Nekvasil and Johnson several more times to begin planning, after which Johnson took over most of the responsibility. “The first town hall meeting with Nekvasil we started, because that’s when the idea came up,” Tillman said. “And then we kept talking with her and Karen Johnson, and then everything started being planned.”Tillman said Student Diversity Board found this cause to be necessary due to the responsibility the College has to students. “The students are here, and it’s not their choice that they don’t have anywhere else to go,” Tillman said. “And also they are here for the housing and the dining, and so it’s kind of Saint Mary’s job to provide the food for them, too, if they’re paying for it.”Tags: Dining Halls, Saint Mary’s College, Thanksgiving Break

Coal India’s shipments in April slumped 25.5 percent from a year earlier after more than a month-long nationwide lockdown halted economic activity, eroding demand for India’s most dominant energy source.Shipments dropped to 39.1 million tons in the month, the Kolkata-based miner said in a filing late Friday. Output declined 10.9 percent to 40.4 million tons.Global coal demand is heading for its biggest annual drop since World War II with burning the fuel to make electricity becoming unprofitable and socially untenable in several countries. The pandemic has only served to hasten its demise. The lockdown in India has shut factories and offices slashing electricity demand by about a quarter, affecting the use of coal and causing inventories to swell to record levels.z India extended the stay-at-home restrictions for most parts of the country for another two weeks starting May 4.“Coal India’s output is expected to remain muted until demand starts picking up,” Rupesh Sankhe, an analyst at Elara Capital India in Mumbai, said before the company reported the data. “It will probably look at new customers, especially those that depend on imported coal, to shore up shipments.”Despite the demand for the fuel crashing, the miner has set a higher output and shipments target for the fiscal year that began April 1 on expectations of a revival after the lockdown is lifted, coal minister Pralhad Joshi said last week.Topics :

He was called up for the England’s T-20 squad for the Tri-series in Australia and New Zealand, but did not play a single match. However, his brother Tom Curran, who was recently seen playing for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Indian Premier League 2018, played two tests in England’s recent Ashes defeat in Australia.After losing the first test at Lord’s by a humiliating margin of nine wickets, veteran pacer James Anderson called on the team to show more fight in the final test of the series, which is set to be played at Headingley on Friday.”It’s going to take some special individual performances this week,” Anderson told a leading English daily. “If you get one or two individuals standing up, then people can piggyback on that and take confidence as well.”It’s quite easy for the confidence of the team to take a hit when you have a defeat like that. So we’ll try, as well as using our skill, to use our heart, to use the fight we have in the dressing room to show people what we can do.” New Delhi: Uncapped all-rounder Sam Curran has been given a debut call-up in to the England squad for the second test against Pakistan as a cover for injured Ben Stokes, the England and Wales Cricket Board said on Wednesday.Earlier, Stokes suffered a hamstring straing during fielding practice, but has not yet been ruled out of the second test match against Pakistan.The 19-year-old Curran, a left-arm seamer plays for English club Surrey and has taken more than 100 first-class wickets, and has an average of 27.18 with the bat.
