January 2014 Delta Says No to Phone Calls During Flights The jury is still out on the Federal Communications Commission's decision to lift the ban on allowing passengers to make phone calls during flights. According to a poll conducted by CNET, 80 percent of the 2,051 individuals who responded say no to the question "Do you want in‐flight cell phone calls?" It seems as though Delta has paid attention to responses like this to the recent news of the possible lift of the ban. In an official memo to Delta employees, CEO Richard Anderson said "Delta will not allow cellular calls or internet‐based voice communications on‐board Delta or Delta Connection flights." Anderson also mentioned their customer research and direct feedback from frequent flyers tells them allowing voice calls during flights would ruin travelers' flight experiences. Delta is a company on the progressive front when it comes to bettering the flying experience for its passengers. This notion is backed up by the company's quick response to the FAA allowing electronic devices to be used during all phases of flights (from gate to gate). Delta was the first airline to file their plan with the FAA. Pre‐Check Application Process Launched by TSA and Customs and Border Protection agency announces Global Entry Program for International Travelers in the U.S. On Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013, The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) launched a public‐facing "Pre‐Check" airport screening program enrollment process. Since the Tuesday announcement, travelers in the Indianapolis area are able to apply and complete background interviews at the application center at Indianapolis International Airport (IND). The TSA plans to open additional application centers in the New York City, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles areas. The overall plan for the application centers is for the TSA to open 300 across the United States.

Within the mining industry an increasing trend in equipment design towards larger, more complex and more productive units is being experienced. As equipment grows in both size and capital cost, so downtime reflects not only in increasing maintenance costs, but also in greater loss of production by an idle unit. This has resulted, therefore, in an increasing interest in maintenance schemes that allow maximum operating life. The one viable solution to this is predictive maintenance - measuring machine condition and repairing when and only when measurements indicate it necessary. in a number of the vital phases of the mining operation, with some impressive results. On the s h o v e l s used for ore excavation, the condition of the motorgenerator set, the hoist and swing transmission, and the hoist's Magnetorque® drive are monitored. On the h a u l a g e t r u c k s used for transporting the ore to the primary crushing plant, the monitoring programme cov~ ers the diesel engine and generator. In the mine's c o n c e n t r a t o r , the autogeneous mills, pumps and conveyors are covered.

PURPOSE During the OBD--II drive cycle, the OBD--II system checks each emission control system by monitoring it for proper operation. It is necessary to run the OBD--II drive cycle: D After repairing an affected vehicle to eliminate a fuel--related or emission--related diagnostic trouble code (DTC). The OBD--II drive cycle will monitor the affected emission system and confirm that the repair was successful. D If the vehicle’s I/M test (“smog check”) results indicate that the OBD--II Readiness Monitors are “incomplete.” Readiness Codes for 1996--98 models are not set to “complete” until all required monitors have gone through one complete monitor cycle. OBD--II monitors could identify a failure. After that, Readiness Codes are set to “complete” after each individual monitor has been completed. Effective January 2, 2001, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will require that vehicles must have all OBD--II Readiness Codes “complete” at the time of an I/M test. This bulletin contains: S OBD--II drive cycle procedure for 1996-97 affected vehicles only (Refer to the appropriate service manual for 1998 and later model OBD--II drive cyle procedures.) S Warranty claim information for OBD--II drive cycle on all affected vehicles. NOTE: On 1996--97 V6 models, after all Readiness codes are complete, turning the ignition off will cause all the Readiness status readings to show incomplete (“INCMP”). This may require that an I/M test be performed before the ignition key is turned off.

Advertising campaigns have to have a sharp eye focused on the budgets. Audiences have to be investigated and AdWords constructed from site URLs. All are part of proactive strategies to build and cultivate a steady increase in the audience and visitors to the web location. Unique tactics are part of advertising and while everybody wants to think positive, there are few negative ideas that can save money and produce desired results. They revolve around the concept that Remarketing for Search is much more than a means of using search keywords for targeting audiences.
The Rhode Island College Early Enrollment Program is a concurrent enrollment program that offers college credit at Rhode Island College to high school students for certain courses which they take at their respective high schools. The EEP provides the means for high school students to get a head start in college by obtaining college credits at Rhode Island College and transferring those credits to the institution that they attend. The EEP is also a formal program that fosters communication between high school teachers and college professors and creates an educational relationship between the high school and the college communities. For a detailed explanation of the Rhode Island College Early Enrollment Program, transferring of credits, and/or other important information, please call the EEP office at 456-8857 or email us at email@example.com. NACEP, the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships, of which Rhode Island College is a charter member, provides guidelines and standards to which concurrent enrollment programs must adhere to maintain membership. It is the adherence to these standards that maintains credibility and excellence among programs such as the EEP and will assure its students credit transfer among many colleges and universities in the United States. The primary purpose of this manual is to document formally the policies and guidelines which govern the workings of the Early Enrollment Program at Rhode Island College to provide a clear understanding for all parties involved.
The thesis is concerned with the study of ﬂuid-structure interaction in ﬂexible tubes both from the modelling as well as the experimental point of view. More speciﬁcally, it presents the ﬁrst stage of development and testing of a novel uniﬁed solution method suitable for ﬂuid-structure interaction problems. In the conventional approach for modelling such problems, the ﬂuid and solid components are treated separately, information is exchanged at their interface and diﬀerent solution algorithms are used for the two components. The equations for solids are solved for displacement and stress and, the ones for ﬂuids are solved for velocity and pressure. The exchange of information between two solution methods that solve for diﬀerent quantities is not a trivial task and has also known drawbacks such as high computational cost and potential numerical instabilities, especially for very ﬂexible structures. In the new method presented in the thesis, a single set of equations is used to describe both ﬂuid and solid, while the interface between them is contained within the solution domain itself. This is achieved by reformulating the solid equations to contain the same primitive variables used in ﬂuids i.e. velocity and pressure. The PISO algorithm is used to handle the velocity-pressure coupling. The method proposed is fully tested for solids on a structural dynamic problem (beam bending) and the results compared successfully with the classical structural analysis. In order to quantify the dissipation characteristics of the numerical integration technique, a stability eigenvalue analysis of the proposed time marching and spatial discretisation scheme is performed in one dimension but the conclusions of this analysis were also in agreement with the results of the beam bending.
