Providence College is a private, coeducational, Catholic college located in Providence, Rhode Island. With its 2010–2011 enrollments of 3,850 undergraduate and 735 graduate students, the college specializes in academic programs focused on the liberal arts. Identify and install a security solution that was easy to implement, didn’t contribute to operational overhead and eliminated the shortcomings of signature-based detection technologies such as NGFW, IPS and AV, which cannot stop advanced malware. Solution Deployment of FireEye Web Malware Protection System 4000 Series appliance. Benefits Protection against advanced malware, zero-day and targeted APT attacks as well as immediate visibility into previously undetected malicious code and optimization of remediation processes permitted swift cost justification of project. Plus all college network traffic passes through the FireEye Web MPS appliance without latency. Ranked by U.S. News as one of the top two master’s level colleges and universities in the North for thirteen consecutive years, Providence College sits on a picturesque hilltop campus two miles west of downtown Providence, Rhode Island, the state’s capital city. Just like any mainstream commercial enterprise, the college is tasked with protecting sensitive data; relating to its students, faculty, staff and research projects. “There is some very sensitive data within the Providence College environment, but with the FireEye Web MPS appliance we know that advanced malware never makes it onto our network undetected.” – Donald J. Schattle II, Information Security Officer, Providence College FireEye, Inc. | 1390 McCarthy Blvd. Milpitas, CA 95035 | 408.321.6300 | 877.FIREEYE (347.3393) | email@example.com | www.fireeye.com Case Study The Truth Can Be Scary Recognition of the limitations of tools acting solely on signatures catalyzed an extensive period of research for Don Schattle, Providence College’s Information Security Officer, that culminated in a pilot of the FireEye Web Malware Protection System. “What we immediately saw was extremely eye-opening! The FireEye appliance was catching malicious code that had previously entered our environment completely undetected,” He recalled. The FireEye Web Malware Protection System (MPS) appliance provides automatic, real-time blocking of next-generation Web malware. Inbound and outbound traffic is inspected to confirm and capture zero-day malware and targeted attacks. Risk is evaluated through the actual execution of suspected code in a full-featured virtual endpoint environment that precisely determines core intent. Schattle noted, “The inline installation of the FireEye Web MPS was a quantum leap forward for us. Not only will it detect and block a threat, it does so in a very elegant manner; the appliance immediately lets a user know why a Web page was not delivered.” The FireEye appliance sits directly behind the firewall and is the gateway to a 5,000+ node campus-wide network. Schattle observed, “It’s never a bottleneck for the network even though all of the college’s traffic passes through it. The significant processing power and throughput capabilities of the unit just make this a non-issue.” Schattle concluded, “Any device we deploy needs to deliver what was promised with a minimum of operator intervention and with a high level of reliability and autonomy: Our FireEye Web Malware Protection System 4000 Series appliance gives us exactly that.” Time is Money ”Early in the evaluation we meticulously tracked every single FireEye Web MPS-generated alert and found that in all cases, the notification was triggered by a real threat,” said Schattle. “We instantly saw that our current security platform had missed a variety of malicious code.” This accuracy allowed the college’s IT team to dramatically reduce the time and cost associated with the detection and eradication of malware threats.

You’ve probably known for a long time that regular grinding is essential for productivity. But what you may not know is just how important it is. We decided to crunch some numbers and find out. By wearing down your button bits by a third you’ll slow down your penetration rate by 30%. But more importantly you’ll increase your running costs by at least 40%! And why? Because the hole will take longer to drill and your labour and rig running costs will escalate. And at the end of the day you’ll have drilled fewer holes. Staying sharp makes a lot of business sense Maintaining penetration can save you money. Firstly, you need good grinding equipment for a start – and you won’t find any better than ours. And secondly, you need to spend time and energy grinding your bits. But the rewards are significant. For an investment amounting to just 2% of your overall drilling costs, you can restore your worn bits to their former glory. And with these bits you cut the time and manpower needed to drill the hole. In fact, you can reduce overall drilling costs up to 30%. How? By using the market’s widest selection of efficient, ergonomically designed grinding machines for fixed installations and field operations - Secoroc Grind Matic. Get the sharpest advice There are many different types of bits, some with inserts and others with buttons – and they come in many different sizes.

USA Luge may also have a limited supply of used equipment available in various conditions. Q: How much does luge equipment cost? A: Prices for used luge equipment can vary depending on condition. A price guideline for new equipment is as follows: Sled: $800-$1,000 Racing suit: $100-$350 Luge Shoes: $165-$250 Racing gloves: $25-$50 Spikes: $30-$45 Face shield: $35-$45 Helmet with face shield: $250-325 Q: Do I need to buy my own equipment? A: Generally, it is recommended that beginning athletes do not buy their own equipment. USA Luge has a supply of sleds and helmets to use for athletes that are just getting started in the sport. Once an athlete determines that they want to pursue a competitive career in luge, they can begin to think about purchasing their own equipment. Before any purchase; however, a coach should always be consulted first to assure proper sizing. Member, United States Olympic Committee If you would like to be an “Official Supplier” of USA Luge, contact our Marketing Department at ext. 104 U.S. Representative, Fédération Internationale de Luge de Course UNITED STATES LUGE ASSOCIATION 57 CHURCH STREET LAKE PLACID, NEW YORK 12946 WWW.USALUGE.ORG U.S. National Team Sled email@example.com PH: 518-523-2071 FX: 518-523-4106 coach before planning to purchase a sled. Most of the time a coach will recommend that first year athletes use USA Luge equipment before making the relatively large investment in their own sled. Luge Equipment and Costs The equipment used in luge is very similar from athlete to athlete, but it is also very “ customized” for each athlete to ensure proper fit and optimum performance. Q: What equipment is a luge athlete required to wear? A: Technically speaking, the only piece of equipment that an athlete is required to wear, according to the international rules, is a helmet. There are several other pieces of equipment that sliders wear during training and competition that must meet a specified set of criteria, but nothing else is actually stipulated in the rules as “required”. Q: Where can I get a sled? A: Luge sleds are very specialized pieces of equipment. There are only a precious few manufacturers around the world that sell sleds on the “open” market. Most internationally competitive nations construct their own sleds for use by their National Team athletes, including the United States. In their attempt to gain a competitive advantage over the competition, these sleds generally contain state-of-the-art technology developed by each nation. Of course, these sleds are never available for sale to the general public because of the secretive technology involved. The main source for sleds on the “open market” is a company in Latvia, one of the former Soviet states. As you can imagine, the logistics of purchasing and shipping a sled from there can be cumbersome. Typically, an order for a sled should be submitted to this company in the spring in preparation for the coming season.
Use Safety Glasses Also use safety footwear; snug fitting clothing; protective gloves; hearing and head protection (5). Carrying Saw Carry the chain saw by the front handle with the saw stopped, finger off the switch, the guide bar and saw chain, covered with the chain protection, to the rear. maintain Chain Saw With Care Inspect chain saw cords periodically and if damaged , have repaired by authorized service facility. Keep cord clear of the chain and operator at all times. Never carry saw by the cord or pull it to disconnect from receptacle. Keep cord from oil and sharp edges. inspect extension cords periodically and replace if damaged. Keep tools sharp and clean for better and safer performance. follow instructions for lubricating and changing accessories. Keep handles dry, clean, and free from oil and grease. Disconnect Chain Saw Disconnect chain saw when not in use, before servicing, and when changing accessories and attachments, such as saw chain and guard (6). Outdoor Use Extension Cords Use only extension cords intended for use outdoors and so marked. Route the power cord in such a way that in cannot get caught in branches or other objects during sawing. Stay Alert Watch what you are doing. use common sense. Do not operate chain saw when you are tired. Keep all parts of the body away from the saw chain when the motor is operating. Before you start the saw, make sure the saw chain is not contacting anything. Check Damaged Parts Before further use of the chain saw, a guard or other part that is damaged should be carefully checked to determine that it will operate properly and perform its intended function. Check for alignment of moving parts, binding of moving parts, breakage of parts, mounting, and any other conditions that may affect its operation. A guard or other part that is damaged should be properly repaired or replaced by an authorized service center unless otherwise indicated elsewhere in this instruction manual. have defective switches be replaced by authorized service center. Do not use chain saw if the switch does not turn the saw on and off. Do not operate a chain saw that is damaged, improperly adjusted, or is not completely and securely assembled (7). Be sure that the saw chain stops moving when the trigger is released. Guard Against Kickback WARNING: KICKBACK may occur when the nose or tip of the guide bar touches an object (8), or when the wood closes in and pinches the saw chain in the cut. Tip contact in some cases may cause a lightning fast reverse reaction, kicking the guide bar up and back towards the operator. Pinching the saw chain along the top of the guide bar may push the guide bar rapidly back towards the operator. Either of these reactions may cause you to lose control of the saw which could result in serious injury to user. The following precautions should be followed to minimize kickback: Always grip each handle with the thumb and fingers encircling the handle as illustrated in (9). Device malfunction maintenance refill oil sharpen the saw chain stop transport shutdown Don't let the nose of the guide bar contact a log, branch, ground, or other obstruction. Don't cut above shoulder height (10). Use devices such as low kickback chain, chain brakes and special guide bars that reduce the risks associated with kickback. Power Supply Connect chain saw to correct voltage, that is, be sure that the voltage supplied is the same as that specified on the nameplate of the tool (11). Replacement Parts When servicing, use only identical replacement parts (11). Polarized Plugs To reduce the risk of electric shock, this equipment has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. if the plug does not fit fully in the outlet , reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install the proper outlet. Do not change the plug in any way. Wear ear protectors during operation. Before making a felling cut, remove dirt, stones, loose bark, nails, staples and wire from the tree. Secure the log so that it will not rol or move suddenly during operation. aVOID UNINTENTIONAL STARTING. Don't carry plugged-in tool with finger on switch. Be sure switch is OFF when plugging in.....
