Understand the function of the capacitor

Understand the function of the starting capacitor used in electric motor

The starting capacitor which is installed in the electric motor is applied to the single-phase motor. Its function is simple, because this capacitor acts as an assistant at the time will be started in an electric motor.

The starting capacitor used in the electric motor mro ReelCraft D9399 can be permanent or instant use. The permanent use is used directly in the set which engages the coil of the electric motor, but without the use of a centrifugal switch or other type of relay. When the electric engine starts, the capacitor will help all match and he stays on in a set that includes a coil of permanent motor.

The flash capacitor comes into operation when the electric motor reaches about 75% of its rated speed and the switch or relay is to disconnect the capacitor.

Electric motor supply system

Electric motor supply system must be analyzed before the electric motor into operation

Two of the most important points to consider in the use of an electric motor are the selection and application of the electric motor. These two points are important because they involve many factors that relate to the installation, operation and maintenance.

The electric motor Coxreels 1125-5-50 power system is factor analysis, because the power supply has a direct influence on the electric motor and the factors to be considered are: rated voltage of the power supply, minimum, maximum variations and voltage disturbances in the which the electric motor should work; the frequency of the network and possible changes that may occur and also effects or disturbances that can be caused in the network power originated by the electric motor due to the inrush current or power conditions that are required by the load.

Electric induction motor has two sets in their composition

The electric induction motor is simple and robust. It only has two sets which are wound stator and rotor assembly. The electric motor induction name is derived from the fact that the current circulating in the secondary or the rotor are induced by alternating currents calls that will circulate in the primary or in the stator

The force that generates the electric motor motion is caused by electromagnetic effects of which are combined together with the currents of the stator and rotor. The DC electric motor idm2333t receives current through a conductor or an electrical circuit that goes in one direction.

The source of tension is continuous may vary the voltage coming out, but this will cause the polarity is maintained and if this occurs, the current will flow in one direction.

Electric motor painting is to let it free of corrosion

The electric motor of the painting is nothing more than a coating that in addition to fulfilling its finishing aesthetic function also serves to let the free electric motor from corrosion.

The painting the electric motor is usually done by applying a primer with a synthetic enamel having a base alkyd immersion. After the electric motor is assembled, the electric motor is finished with a paint of the same base and thus is given the final appearance to the color and texture that was previously defined.

Painting with alkyd based paint is recommended because it protects the electric motor from corrosion and helps withstand high temperatures.

480v 3 phase input

The electric motor for special environments receives special painting, but each electric motor is the best painting that will make him able to work in these environments.

AC motor

.Alternating current motor is one of the most commonly used when electric motors. It has a feature that differs from the others because it is the rotating equipment that runs from the electricity. They have synchronous and asynchronous models, among other features used in the differentiation of these engines.

mro supply pt0611

The engine has an AC has many other divisions to define this model. Regardless of the inner workings, its goal is to make the transformation of electrical energy into mechanical energy and to run the process to be present. An increasingly high engine and its results favor any success in the use thereof.

Today the electric motor has evolved so significantly that can be present in various segments and different end applications. It would be interesting to check the various types of engines so you could choose the one that best fits what you need.

LUANDA en måned siden, en 17 ton forsendelse af bananer forlod Angola for Portugal i hvilken statslige medier udråbt som en “første symbolsk parti” i genopblussen af ​​et landbrug, udslettet af borgerkrig.

Men at krigen sluttede for 14 år siden, og siden da Angola har overset landbrug, i stedet at udvikle en afhængighed af olieindtægter og importen det køber. Nu, med rå mindre end halvdelen af ​​sin pris af to år siden, synes landet at være i stå.

Afrikas top olieproducent har brug for mere end en container med frugt til at løse en finansiel og økonomisk krise forværres af en offentlig sundhed krise,canada goose outlet der har blotlagt manglerne i den “diversificering” mantra Jose Eduardo dos Santos, dets formand i de sidste 37 år .

Olie rigdom forvandlet Angola til sub Sahara Afrikas tredje største økonomi og en af ​​kontinentets få “øverste midterste indkomst” stater.canada goose outlet Men ud over de høje stigninger på hovedstadens Dubai stil strandpromenade, problemerne er tydeligt at se.

Kraner stå inaktiv oven halvt færdig beton kontorbygninger i Luanda, mens bunker skidt løgn opkrævede i gaderne, et resultat af kommunale budgetnedskæringer indførte i år at forsøge at balancere bøgerne.

Den elendighed er grobund for skadedyr, fluer og sygdomme, og sundhedseksperter siger, det er ikke tilfældigt, at en gul feber-epidemi, der startede i december i en af ​​Luanda enorme slumkvarterer har spredt over hele landet og videre og nåede endda Kina.

“Luanda er beskidt, ulækkert,” siger 58-årig forretningsmand Antonio Bobbe, kantning forbi en vagabond rodede gennem en bunke skrald. “Regeringen gør ikke noget. Der er ingen ansvar. Du skulle se rotterne. De er enorme.”

På toppen af ​​snavs, gør en mangel på hård valuta drive forretning hårde for alle, men godt forbundet. “Hvis du har venner, statslige venner, kan du få dollars. Hvis ikke, ingenting,” sagde Bobbe. “Vi håber, at situationen ændrer sig, men i øjeblikket er der ingen lys for enden af ​​tunnelen.”

Før uafhængigheden fra Portugal i 1974, Angola var en stor eksportør af frugt, kaffe og sisal. Så to årtiers konflikt ødelagde kommercielle landbrug og da freden vendte tilbage i 2002 problemer lige fra afstemte miner i sukkerplantager til hjemstedsfordrevne landarbejdere har frustrerede bestræbelser på at genoplive den.

Mens Angola har genopbygget en imponerende infrastruktur, at få nogen form for produktiv industri fra jorden er gået intetsteds bortset fra olien, som den har påberåbt sig for at opnå halsbrækkende økonomisk vækst.

Det junger nu ude 1,8 millioner tønder om dagen fra dens offshore felter og er Kinas førende rå leverandør. Men de petro dollars kommer til en pris.

Olie tegner sig for 40 procent af BNP, 70 procent af statens indtægter og 95 procent af valutaindtægter, efterlader nationen 25 millioner mennesker faretruende udsat for udsving i verdens oliemarkeder.

Med rå hensygnende på $ 50 en tønde, ned fra over $ 100 i midten af ​​2014, er Angola udsultet af dollars. Væksten er aftaget til 3 procent næsten en recession i lokale vilkår, mens den nationale valuta er brudt sammen, og inflationen i et land, der importerer næsten alt ramte en årlig 29 procent i maj.

For dos Santos, en sovjetisk uddannet olie ingeniør betragtes som søjle i efterkrigstidens stabilitet, kunne timingen af ​​de to kriser ikke være værre. De har ramt et år før et valg og to år før det, som 73 år gamle præsident har sagt vil være hans pensionering.

“De sårbarhed af post konflikt stat, dos Santos har bygget bliver udsat,” siger Paula Roque, en Angola ekspert på Storbritanniens Oxford University. “Det hele retorik af ‘Angola Rising” ikke længere holder. ”

Desperat regeringen slugte sin stolthed og søgt hjælp fra World Health Organization mod gul feber, men i sidste uge Den Internationale Valutafond sagde Luanda havde endt taler om en bred finansiel redningspakke.

Regeringen har ikke kommenteret og finansminister Armando Manuel ikke reagere på anmodninger om et interview.

Udover gul feber, få indikatorer er at fortælle som Kwanza valuta, ned mere end 40 procent i det sidste år over for dollaren på den officielle centralbank sats.

Udlejes kun til en heldig par enkeltpersoner og virksomheder, satsen er af ringe konsekvens for almindelige angolanere, der har til at stole på et sort marked, hvor Kwanza er værd så lidt som 570 til dollaren, mindre end en tredjedel sin officielle værdi af 165 .

“For folk bringe i noget fra USA eller Sydafrika er det meget svært,” sagde 26-årige Nadio Medina, der bruges til at importere brugte biler fra Sydafrika. Nu sælger han æg engros til fortov burger boder.

I en usædvanlig ærlig indrømmelse sidste måned, dos Santos indrømmede, at oppustet statslige olieselskab Sonangol, den centrale søjle i økonomien og kilden til næsten alle sine dollars, ikke havde betalt en cent til statskassen siden januar.

“Vores land bor på import import for mad, for råvarer til nationale producenter, for industri, landbrug, byggeri,” sagde han. “Vi er nødt til at gøre andre varer at eksportere ud over olien. Det er en strategisk opgave.”

Alligevel ser forbi retorik, det eneste, sandsynligvis ændre er Sonangol.

Sidste måned, dos Santos fik sin 43 år gamle datter Isabel administrerende direktør, indbydende råb af “supersoniske nepotisme” fra anti transplantat hjemmeside Maka Angola, en sjælden afvigende stemme i et af Afrikas mest politisk lukkede stater.

Sidste år, for eksempel, 17 medlemmer af en Luanda bogklub blev fængslet for at læse en volumen beskrevet som en “blå print for ikke voldelig modstand mod undertrykkende regimer”.

Isabel dos Santos sagt af Forbes Magazine til at være Afrikas rigeste kvinde insisterede hendes udnævnelse var alt at gøre med at ryste op Sonangol og intet at gøre med en dynastiske dos Santos succession plan, som hendes fars modstandere påstår.

“. Det er ikke på grund af politik, jeg blev bragt ind i dette projekt på grund af min erfaring fra det private erhvervsliv,” fortalte hun Reuters i et interview, at udlagt hendes centrale mål: at producere mere olie for færre penge.

Udenlandske olieselskaber Chevron og BP klappede hendes planer, der omfatter har Boston Consulting Group og PriceWaterhouseCoopers som rådgivere og stripping ud Sonangol s fast ejendom, bank og luftfart enheder til at fokusere på olie.

For mange, eftersyn er det tydeligste tegn endnu, at præsident dos Santos virkelig forbereder sig på pensionering, men ikke nødvendigvis at gøre plads til sin datter.

Kim Jong un, øverste leder i Nord-Korea, har ikke blitt sett offentlig siden 3. september, da han deltok på en konsert gitt av Moranbong Band, en alt jente gruppe der medlemmene han personlig valgt. Det virker som alt er ikke normalt i en verden av moro kjærlig stalinistiske diktator, og en rekke forklaringer, de fleste som kommer fra Sør-Korea, har blitt avansert.

Det er alltid mulig, gitt den drastiske natur nordkoreanske politikk, at Kim har vært stille (som det var) maskin skutt til døde i en dynas kupp. Mer sannsynlig er han skadet eller syk. Ifølge en teori, har han blitt poleaxed av sin avhengighet til emmentaler; en annen som han har vokst så fett at vekten har forårsaket anklene å bryte. Jeg kjøper ikke det. Hvis fett folks anklene tendens til å bryte, vil vi vite om det i Storbritannia har vi en overvekt krise, tross alt. Det kan være at det ikke var hans ankler som brøt, men såler på platåsko han slites å se høyere (som deretter resulterte i brudd på anklene).

Overdrevent alkoholinntak er også skylden; og ifølge “diplomatiske kilder” (som høres ikke veldig diplomatisk), Kim “liker å drikke og feste hele natten, som sin far” som også hadde gikt.

Henry VIII var en lidende, som er grunnen til at gikt ble kalt “aristokratisk sykdom”. En moderne lidende, forfatteren Geoff Nicholson, uttrykte håp i en New York Times artikkel som noen “irredeemably hip” ville komme ned med gikt, å snu bildet av tilstanden.

Det er råttent lykke for gikt er ikke noe å le aksjonister at Kim skal ha slått giktisk snarere enn for eksempel Russell Brand. Selv om Kim er Nord-Korea, kan du faktisk bildet ham iført en skjev periwig i Pall Mall klubb med et kyllinglår i den ene hånden, et glass portvin i den andre, og en fot støttet på en pute, for å lindre smerten i stortåa (som gikt har en tendens til å konsentrere seg).

Men de av oss som ler bør huske at gikt setter sine ofre i en stygg temperament. Selv Dr Johnson mistet sin sjarm og vidd når plaget, snappishly svarer på henvendelser etter at hans helse med: “. Jeg er som jeg var” Nå kan det være at Kim Jong un ikke har mye sjarm og vidd til å begynne med. Han har en kjernefysisk arsenal, men. “Får vel snart, Mr Kim!” Jeg sier.

(CBS/STMW) A fifth suspect has been charged in connection with a two year crime spree that netted more than $2 million in stolen merchandise from tony stores across Chicago.

Damarco Darring, 22, faces felony counts of burglary and theft, misdemeanor counts of possession of cannabis and driving on a suspended license, and four traffic citations, according to a statement issued Wednesday by Chicago Police. Monday during a traffic stop in the 8600 block of South Morgan, police said. The officers realized he was wanted in connection with a burglary from 2014, and he was arrested.

Darring, of the 3500 block of South Rhodes, was scheduled to appear in bond court Thursday.

moncler jacket sale The burglaries started with gang members using crowbars to smash the windows of stores on tony North Michigan Avenue and elsewhere in the city.

But when businesses boosted their security on the advice of the police, the burglars crashed stolen cars through their doors. The thieves would seize all the loot they could carry and flee in minutes, police say.

The five men charged and other suspects allegedly stole more than $2 million in merchandise and caused more than $500,000 in damage to businesses in Chicago, the suburbs and other cities in the Midwest, police said. They gravitated from dealing drugs and ripping off train cars to so called crash and grabs, police said.

Police Cmdr. Eugene Roy said more than 40 heists have been attributed to the crew. The crash and grab incidents began in early 2014 and usually involved suspects wearing masks and gloves to obscure their identities.

But police obtained key forensic evidence from the Neiman Marcus at 737 N. Michigan after a stolen van crashed into the store on Dec. 10 and thieves made off with luxury goods, Roy said. He wouldn’t provide details on what kind of evidence was recovered.

Police have been unable to recover most of the items stolen in the burglaries, Roy said. The crew was selling the goods for discounts of more than 50 percent, he said.

The other four charged in the string of high profile burglaries include Kenneth C. Greene, 23, of the 5600 block of South Emerald; Hershel Phillips, 18, of the 5800 block of South Peoria; and Jawon Sellers, 24, and Tommie Adams, 22, both of the 10100 block of South LaSalle.

Greene and Phillips both appeared in court Tuesday and were each ordered held on a $250,000 bond, according to the Cook County state’s attorney’s office. Sellers appeared in court Sunday and was ordered held on a $150,000 bond. Adams was in court Monday and was ordered held on a $25,000 bond with electronic monitoring.

Warrants have been issued for other suspects, police said.

Other crash and grabs attributed to the crew include the Sept. 15 burglary of a Moncler boutique at 33 East Oak Street in the Gold Coast and the Nov. 26 burglary of a Cisco Nyc store in the 4000 block of West Madison, police said.

Asked why the crew allegedly gravitated to targeting stores, Roy said: “Doing burglaries is a lot easier than standing out on the corner selling drugs 12 hours a day.”

But CBS 2 security consultant Ross Rice says it doesn necessarily mean gangs throughout the city are changing their business model.

don think this that is going to be a full time endeavor for the gangs,” Ross said. “I don think we going to see them shift away from their traditional source of revenue, which is selling drugs.

“They still do the foolish stuff, they don care,” the manager said. “They don care somebody got arrested. manager tells us there have been several other less destructive burglary attempts.

New Brunswick may have the reputation as the mecca of the New Jersey basement show, having helped launch the national careers of acts like Gaslight Anthem, Titus Andronicus, and the Screaming Females. wholesale nfl jerseys from china But Jersey City has its own underground history; the pop punk band Dirt Bike Annie put on shows at a space called The Souse House back in the where MC Chris got his start; Mohawk Barbie and The Atomic Missiles played host to young bands like the Ergs, the Ex Models, and Thursday in a basement called The Missile Silo; and the indie pop band Spent shared a place in Jersey City Heights. Today, though, the action’s at a ramshackle four family house nicknamed The Barracks just a few blocks from Journal Square, where insanely original folk punk acts yowl in the basement and nobody seems to mind.

Singer Darren Deicide (pictured at left) moved into the Barracks about six years ago, and started hosting shows there a few years later. And noise complaints have never been a problem.

because we keep it all acoustic, and we try to finish up by midnight, he says. mostly because it’s Journal Square, and the Jersey City cops just have better things to do than worry about us. (pronounced “dee a side”) also acts as a partner in the Ever Reviled Records collective, and the label roster provides much of the talent at Barracks shows.

That includes folk/punker Deicide himself, the gravelly voiced blues singer The Old Man His Po’ Buckra (who keeps time by banging a bare foot against a cajon box), the electrifying Nathan Carpenter (seen at right; Deicide describes him as roots musician dipped in acid, the festering zombie of blues and busking folksinger Dave Cuomo. There’s also a recording studio upstairs at the Barracks, run by hippie turned entrepreneur Jonny H.

Like most Jersey City musicians, Deicide has his own ideas about why such a large city can’t sustain more live music venues, citing the recent sale of the Lamp Post and the on again/off again status of IM Automato Chino as examples of what he calls failed gentrification.

“It important to put Jersey City in its context, because we are constantly affected by the presence of New York City,” he explains. “For the past 20 or so years, there has been this concerted effort to ‘clean up’ New York and make it a playground for condo dwellers and yuppies. The unsung New Jersey boroughs of New York City have existed as a well kept secret for these people and their tacky mall culture, but they slowly gotten hip to it. the road bump of the recession, which has slowed the pace down, Deicide says the ongoing march of development has made it hard for underground culture.

reason there has been such difficulty in sustaining music venues has been this economic pressure to keep fringe elements out and replace them with bland, boxed lifestyles, he says. The Barracks is more than just a reaction to the lack of venues. The space also exists as a sort of leftist rebuke to the culture industry, in particular New York area promoters. let me be the first to lift the veil:there is a small group of promoters that have monopolized access to venues, and they are wiping their asses with hungry young artists who are so eager to play New York that they gleefully go with it.

House shows, he notes, change that equation. freed from the parasitical promoter, the artist can actually get something for their performance instead of acting as unpaid labor for someone else. as long as no one complains about the noise, there’s nothing actually illegal about inviting some friends over and playing music together. Unlike New Brunswick house shows which tend to be epicenters for underage drinking and out of control moshing the Barracks shows draw an older, post collegiate, working class crowd. And while Barracks regulars tend to tip the folk/punk equation heavily toward the punk side of the scale, the shows don’t actually get all that loud.

one thing, we avoid PAs as much as possible, Deicide explains. a logistical thing, with neighbors and whatnot, but it also an aesthetic thing:taking the amplifiers and mics out of the equation forces musicians to go back to the old standard that existed in music before everyone became electrically and digitally assisted. You going to have to be someone who can get intimate with a crowd, and you going to have to have a truly projected voice. Deicide likens the experience to old juke house way, there nothing retro or antiquated about the acts that perform at the house. cheapnfljerseysonliney like artists with strong hints of individualism, and I like them displaying their talent. shows attract audiences from all over New Jersey, Manhattan, and Brooklyn, and it’s not unusual to have a touring artist on a bill as well. Deicide says that while many of his friends live in or near Jersey City, it’s still too soon to start talking about any sort of unified music scene here. Despite the existence of many small circles of bands and musicians, he says, they often don overlap.

The circular wheat farms, half a mile across with a central sprinkler system, spread across the desert in the 1980s and 1990s, visible in spring to anyone overflying the Arabian peninsula as green spots amid a dun sea of sand.

The oilfields remain, but the last wheat farms have just disappeared to save the aquifers supplying them. For the first time, Saudi Arabia will rely almost completely on wheat imports in 2016, a reversal from its policy of self sufficiency. canada goose jacket It will become a full member of the club of Middle Eastern nations that, according to the commodity trade adage, “sell hydrocarbons to buy carbohydrates.”

The shift toward imports, which started eight years ago, is reverberating beyond the kingdom, providing business opportunities for grain traders such as Cargill Inc and Glencore Plc as well as for farmers in countries such as Germany and Canada.

“The Saudis are the largest new wheat buyer to emerge,” said Swithun Still, director of grain trader Solaris Commodities SA in Morges, Switzerland.

Ahmed bin Abdulaziz Al Fares, managing director of the Grain Silos and Flour Mills Organization, the state agency in charge of cereal imports, told an industry conference in Riyadh last month that Saudi Arabia will import 3.5 million metric tons in 2016. That’s a 10 fold increase from about 300,000 tons in 2008, the first year local crops were curtailed. An agency presentation says the kingdom will rely on imports for “100 percent” of its wheat in 2016 for the first time.

By 2025, demand is forecast to rise to 4.5 million tons as population growth drives demand for flour, positioning Saudi Arabia as one of the 10 biggest wheat buyers worldwide.

The shift is propitious as the wheat market weathers the largest glut in nearly 30 years, with bumper harvests filling up silos from Russia to Argentina. Prices for high quality wheat, which reached an all time high in Kansas City of more than $13 per bushel in 2008, have fallen to less than $5 this year.

Saudi Arabia is already the world’s largest importer of barley, used to feed camels; and among the top 15 in sorghum, another cereal used as animal feed; and of corn.

It may not be the last country to turn away from growing its own crops. Aquifers in other key agricultural regions, including northern India and northern China, are also under pressure. The stress is compounded by erratic rains, which some blame on climate change.

Depleting WaterSaudi Arabia became a net exporter of wheat in 1984 from producing almost none in the 1970s. The self sufficiency program became a victim of its own success, however, as it quickly depleted aquifers that haven’t been filled since the last Ice Age. In an unexpected U turn, the government said in 2008 it was phasing out the policy, reducing purchases of domestic wheat each year by 12.5 percent and bridging the gap progressively with imports.

The last official local harvest occurred in May, although the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization projects that a small crop of about metric 30,000 tons for traditional specialty bakery products will “prevail” in 2016. At its peak in 1992, Saudi Arabia produced 4.1 million tons of wheat and was one of the world’s top 10 wheat exporters.

In the Middle East, only Turkey, Egypt, Iran, Iraq and Syria grow significant quantities of wheat, although they often import to cover domestic shortfalls. Egypt, for instance, is the world’s largest importer because of its booming population’s demand for subsidized bread.

Bright SpotWheat traders said that rising purchases from Saudi Arabia were one of the few bullish factors in the grain market. The kingdom has become particularly important for Canada, Germany and the Baltic states of Lithuania and Latvia, from which it procures the bulk of its wheat.

“Saudi is going to need more imports but the world market can right now easily meet the increase in demand,” said Stefan Vogel, head of agricultural commodity research at Rabobank International in London.

In turn, Saudi Arabia has been investing in foreign farmland so far generating more headlines than crops and grain trading operations. www.gooseonsale.top In April, a Saudi backed company agreed to buy a majority stake in the former Canadian Wheat Board in a C$250 million ($203 million) deal that gives it access to grain exports from Canada.

Bunge Ltd., one of the world’s largest grain traders, and state owned Saudi Agricultural Livestock Investment Company (SALIC) partnered for the acquisition. SALIC was established in November 2011 to secure adequate food supplies for Saudi Arabia, according to its website.

EUGENE In the days leading up to the Rose Bowl, Oregon sent customized football jerseys to some of its famous fans, including guitarist Tommy Thayer of Kiss, Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon and retired boxer Lennox Lewis.

The jerseys were part of a social media campaign to draw non football fans to the Ducks. The attention grabbing promotion was the latest for an athletic department that is known for innovative marketing. Now the school’s academic side is joining in.

Even before the Ducks face Ohio State in the national championship game Monday, overall university efforts like the jersey campaign are translating into the “Flutie Effect.”

So named for the surge in applications at Boston College following quarterback Doug Flutie’s Hail Mary against Miami in 1984, in recent years the phenomenon has touched several schools. Cheap Jerseys from china Boise State, for example, cited a 135 percent jump in online academic inquiries, record merchandise sales and an increase in donations following its perfect 13 0 season in 2006.

The Ducks aren’t leaving their Flutie Effect to chance.

Just before the Rose Bowl victory against Florida State, Oregon launched its new academic website. That was not a coincidence, said Tim Clevenger, the university’s associate vice president for communications, marketing, and brand management.

It was decided before the season started last fall to kick off a four year overall marketing campaign using football as a welcome mat.

“As the season progressed, the Heisman announcement came out, we won the Pac 12 championship, and then we’re going to the Rose Bowl, the whole thing just steamrolled,” Clevenger said. “It was an opportunity to say, ‘The excellence that the football team and the whole athletic program in general represent is what the University of Oregon is all about.'”

Billboards went up across Los Angeles. There were prospective student rallies. And Oregon debuted a new TV spot that ran for the first time during the Rose Bowl taking advantage of the free 30 second ad the opposing schools both get during the game broadcast which will run again on Monday during the game between the Ducks and Ohio State.

The effort, which is being privately funded, paid off. In the hour after the ad aired, Oregon’s web traffic quadrupled, Clevenger said. The traffic from the school’s main home page to the admissions page was six times what it was the previous year when the Ducks beat Texas in the Alamo Bowl.

The traffic to the academics information page doubled, and an “Explore Majors” page surged with six times the hits, Clevenger said.

“So it’s very clear that the broad awareness that our team brings is translating to people checking out the university and finding out about us,” he said.

The evolution of the Ducks’ athletic brand has been an ongoing process for more than a decade, starting when Nike co founder and Oregon alum Phil Knight posed a simple question to the athletic department: “What do you need to get to the next level?”

That brought new facilities and state of the art locker rooms that gave way this season to the sparkling Hatfield Dowlin Complex adjacent to Autzen Field, with the Ferrari leather seats in the team auditorium and Italian marble in the showers. http://www.cheapjerseysz9ws.top The idea was to help lure top recruits to Eugene in a conference where Los Angeles and Seattle are more attractive destinations.

And it brought those countless flashy uniforms the team is known for.

Amid all the Nike facilitated flash, Oregon also started winning. In the past 10 years, the Ducks have the most wins among power conference schools with 106; LSU is second with 103. Coach Chip Kelly brought in an unconventional hyperdrive spread offense in 2007 that the Ducks have built upon even now that Kelly has moved on to the NFL.

And that’s key to their brand development, said Ed O’Hara, chief creative officer and senior partner at SME Branding, a brand building firm headquartered in New York.

“That’s the Flutie Effect right there. It (winning) gives validity to everything they’re doing on the branding side,” O’Hara said. “They’re proving it on the field, so it’s a beautiful harmony of these bold new brand presentation ideas and success. That’s a great, great combination.”

“It really has upset this notion of tradition, in my opinion. Change and innovation is part of their tradition.

When rookie goalie Mackenzie Skapski got called up by the New York Rangers, he expected to be in the Big Apple for a game or two. That was three weeks ago.

The Abbotsford native backed up Rangers goalie Cam Talbot Thursday against the Vancouver Canucks for the eighth straight game while injured No.1 netminder Henrik Lundqvist recovers from a neck injury.

Skapski, who had been playing in his rookie pro season for the Rangers’ American Hockey League affiliate in Hartford, is still adjusting to life in the NHL after a steady diet of long bus trips and motels in junior and the minors.

“The hotels you stay at, the travel, the meals, it’s all top notch,” Skapski said.

On the ice, there’s even bigger adjustments.

“Game wise,Canada Goose online I would say that I have to be a little more patient in the NHL than I would in the AHL everything is kind of amped up a little bit, velocity, accuracy, everything.”

The young goalie says his first two practices with the Rangers “weren’t the prettiest,” but he’s been steadily gaining confidence facing NHL shooters.

“I felt really good [last practice], and I am being more patient and seeing the shots coming to me instead of just guessing where they are going.”

Three weeks in, there are still times when the NHL experience seems surreal.

“When you get that call, initially it’s pretty crazy,” said Skapski. “A lot of things go through your mind. You’ve obviously been working really hard for this your entire hockey career and invested a lot of time in what you do and to get that call. it was really exciting.”

He’d been on FaceTime with his brother when an East Coast number appeared on his smartphone screen. He wisely took the call.

“I called my brother back and he was pretty excited and then I phoned my parents and they were obviously pretty excited.”

His parents, who were shopping at Ikea when they received the call, headed straight back to their home in Abbotsford to quickly pack their bags and rush to YVR to grab a last minute flight to New York.

“MSG is obviously a phenomenal place and the first person I saw was [Rangers coach] Alain Vigneault. I just quickly shook his hand and he said ‘Happy to have you here’ then I went into the room and they geared me all up and then I was all set to go.”

Skapski had been inside the hallowed arena before, but only as a spectator. When he returned to the dressing room prior to puck drop, an iconic Rangers blue jersey with his name and No. 70 stitched on the back was hanging in his stall.

“I wasn’t playing so it wasn’t as big a deal. It was more just enjoy yourself and enjoy everything about it,” he said about dressing for his first NHL Game.

Still, prior to stepping out on the ice he felt something he seldom ever felt: a case of nerves.

“I never really get nervous for games and I wasn’t even playing, but I felt goosebumps. Usually before a big game I’m usually pretty chill and relaxed. This was the first time I’ve been nervous slash goose bumpy.”

His parents, who’d barely made their flight at YVR, had settled into their seats and eagerly waited to see their son on the ice.

Usually, during the pre game warmup and anthems Skapski can spot them in the stands but not at the cavernous MSG.

“I honestly had no idea where they were. Usually I can pick them out in normal game but in a crowd of 20,000.”

One person he did recognize on the ice was the backup goaltender of the Boston Bruins, Malcolm Subban.

The pair had been teammates on the Canadian world junior team and had kept in touch in the minors.

“We just kind of talked a little bit [during the pre game warm up]; he was up and I was up. It was just kind of cool to see each other and what different paths we’ve taken.”

And while adjusting to the NHL is a steep learning curve, Skapski has been getting plenty of support, especially from his fellow puck stoppers.

“Cam [Talbot] has been really good with me, really interactive with me. Same with Henrik. You know everybody here seems to be really helping me out.”

ANN ARBOR Devin Funchess had made his decision. He didn need any more incentive to commit to the Michigan football program. He already done so in the spring of 2011.

Still, as a high school senior, he traveled from Farmington Hills, Mich., to Ann Arbor for a historic moment in the rivalry between Michigan and Notre Dame.

Funchess was one of the many recruits who were at the first night game at Michigan Stadium on Sept. 10, 2011, and watched UM rally to a 35 31 win on Roy Roundtree touchdown with two seconds left.

do I remember about it? Funchess said. last minute. I thought we lost the game. The atmosphere was wild. Just crazy. The last minute plus was amazing. Saturday, the sophomore tight end will be part of another benchmark in the history of the rivalry: what could be the last game at Michigan Stadium between the two teams, as the series will go on hiatus after the 2014 matchup in South Bend, Ind. Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon said Wednesday that he isn planning to contact Notre Dame in regards to resuming the series in the future.

Saturday will be Funchess second appearance in the rivalry game, this year as Michigan top returning tight end.

feel a lot more prepared for this season, said Funchess, who had two catches for 47 yards last weekend against Central Michigan. the winter, spring, summer, it about getting more reps in, mental reps, just getting ready. Cheap Jerseys china Mental reps are a lot better than physical reps, because you can go through that all day long. You know you be prepared with what you have to do. his debut last season against Air Force, Funchess had four catches for 106 yards, the first 100 yard receiving game for a UM tight end since Jerame Tuman in 1997. Funchess finished his first season with 15 catches for 234 yards and five touchdowns. He had two catches for 47 yards in the Wolverines season opening win over Central Michigan.

Prior to this season, offensive coordinator Al Borges said Funchess role is part of the progression of the offense.

“Because we’ve recruited to it, we feel a lot better about it, Borges said. we came in it wasn’t a position of emphasis, so we kind of made do with what we had. But now that we’ve had a chance to recruit to it, we feel a lot better about it.”

At 6 foot 5, 235 pounds, Funchess brings height and size to the position and provides a lengthy option for quarterback Devin Gardner a factor that will come into play, given that the top two receivers, Jeremy Gallon and Drew Dileo, don stand over 5 10.

His height and weight could play a role against Notre Dame and its front seven on defense, which includes nose guard Louis Nix and defensive end Stephon Tuitt, who had 12 sacks in 2012 (10 sacks, four assisted).

the blocking and play action, I feel like that will help out more, Funchess said. front seven is hard to beat, with all of their returning starters. They were good last year, and they probably going to come back better this year. is one of three players wearing “Legends jerseys,” designated prior to the start of the season. Funchess will wear No. 87 for the remainder of his time at UM in honor of Ron Kramer, a two time All American tight end in the 1950s.

Guggenheim fellowship on race, crime, and justice.

On a typical evening more than 30 years ago, Johnnie O’Neal was home watching television with his family. canada goose sale At the same time that night on March 16, 1984, a brutal crime was being committed in the Douglass Houses in Manhattan one that would change O’Neal’s life forever. The victim in that assault, a 21 year old woman, was robbed and raped at knifepoint.

In the aftermath, the woman, along with her mother, would later identify O’Neal as the assailant. He was charged with rape and robbery, and later convicted and sentenced to 10 to 20 years in prison.

“I didn’t see any hope for me,” said O’Neal.

The arrest and the subsequent quest by O’Neal, who maintained his innocence, to prove that he didn’t commit the crimes are not uncommon. But an initiative used by some district attorneys and which eventually was crucial in the outcome of O’Neal’s case is gaining traction nationwide.

But O’Neal, who was repeatedly denied parole, served 13 years in prison for the rape and robbery. And in the years that followed, O’Neal continued to fight to prove his innocence, especially for his mother’s sake.

“You know she wore the stigma that her son was a rapist,” he said, “and that just killed me.”

Eight years after his release lawyers from the Legal Aid Society filed a motion to have O’Neal dropped from a Level 3 to a Level 1 sex offender. During that time the attorneys began reinvestigating his case, and reinterviewed the victim and her mother in 2008.

They recanted their story about where they saw O’Neal and when, and the lawyers’ investigation revealed other inconsistencies with the victim’s original story.

That cleared the way in 2010 for O’Neal to contact the Manhattan District Attorney’s Conviction Integrity Unit to request that his case be given a second look. The Manhattan DA conducted its own investigation and in 2013 filed a motion supporting O’Neal’s lawyers’ motion to dismiss the charges.

And after more than 28 years, O’Neal finally had his name cleared.

O’Neal’s current attorney, Jason Leventhal, says it may never have happened if the Manhattan District Attorney didn’t have a dedicated unit to review cases like this.

“The creation of a conviction integrity unit is a model that every prosecutor’s office should follow,” he said.

O’Neal’s case is just one example of the 1,600 exonerations that have occurred since 1989, according to the National Registry of Exonerations (NRE).

Several District Attorneys’ offices across the country have created Conviction Integrity Units (CIU) to investigate post conviction claims of innocence. In New York City, Manhattan and Brooklyn are the only districts to have launched units.

The men in charge of those offices happen to be two of the newer district attorneys. Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance has been in office for five years, and in Brooklyn, Ken Thompson has been in office for only a year and a half.

Vance created the first such unit in the city in 2010. He says one goal in creating the unit was to be more transparent about how his office deals with issues of conviction integrity.

“We need to make sure that we are doing the best we can to avoid making error judgments at the beginning of a case that may lead to a wrongful conviction,” Vance said. “And we need to have a process post conviction where people or lawyers believe their case should be reviewed.”

Manhattan’s unit is currently comprised of 10 senior members who are trained in the process of reviewing and re investigating cases. Vance has recently requested funding to add another attorney to the staff. So far the unit has reviewed more than 160 cases involving serious felonies such as homicides, rapes, burglaries, and robberies. www.canadagoose2014.top/ They went on to re investigate 14 of those cases and O’Neal’s case is one of five that the office has consented to vacate.

Vance also has a separate advisory panel comprised of criminal justice experts such as former judges, former prosecutors, professors, and defense attorneys who advise the office on the best practices for reviewing cases.

“Outsiders are important because they can provide experience and input on what they think about the work we’re doing and how we can do it better,” he says.

In Kings County, former District Attorney Charles Hynes created the unit in 2011. Two years later, Hynes created a separate panel to review cases involving a former NYPD detective named Louis Scarcella after a review by the New York Times found the detective used the same witness in several cases.

Hynes said at the time that the investigations of a 1991 murder case Scarcella worked on “revealed allegations of improprieties on the part of the investigative detective, Louis Scarcella.”

After his election in 2014, Thompson expanded the office’s unit, which is now referred to as the Conviction Review Unit. It is comprised of 10 assistant district attorneys and three investigators, including former homicide prosecutor Mark Hale. Most of the units investigations are into cases that Scarcella worked on. During Thompson’s first year the unit successfully overturned 10 murder convictions for defendants who were wrongfully incarcerated due to Scarcella’s actions.

The Conviction Review Unit has taken on the task of investigating more than 70 convictions in which Scarcella was involved in the initial investigation. The cases focus mostly on human error, which can prove harder to investigate than cases involving DNA, Hale says.

“It is more of a challenge but it is more of an exacting examination then has been done anywhere in country by anybody,” he said. “We’re looking at everything, reexamination of witnesses, conduct of police officers, conduct of prosecutors even the performance of the defense attorney so that we can get a total picture not just one slice of it like the DNA cases are.”

Hale also admits there are some difficulties when investigating crimes that happened so far in the past and not relying on DNA evidence.

“Things are different now, prosecutions now are based in large part on DNA evidence, on social media on videotaped cameras that seem to be on every corner now that certainly weren’t there 10, 15 years ago going before that when prosecutions were basically built on confessions and eyewitness observations as opposed to scientific evidence and documentary evidence,” he said.

Brooklyn’s Conviction Review Unit is praised as one of the best in the country. Since 2014 it has investigated and vacated convictions for 13 individuals. Hale says a big part of the success was Thompson’s decision to have former Defense Attorney and Harvard Professor Ron Sullivan revamp the unit.

Crabs, insects and spiders living in coastal salt marshes affected by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster were damaged by the massive oil spill but were able to recover within a year if their host plants remained healthy, according to a University of Houston study published March 7 in the open access journal PLoS ONE. In one of the first studies to look at how oil spills affect salt marsh arthropods, Brittany McCall, a UH graduate student, and biology professor Steven Pennings, her adviser, sampled terrestrial arthropods and marine invertebrates at the time of the oil spill, as well as a year later.

The April 2010 explosion aboard the Deepwater Horizon resulted in a massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico that washed ashore, damaging a number of coastal areas.

McCall and Pennings received a grant from the National Science Foundation to study some of the coastal salt marshes affected by the spill. They gathered samples in areas where relatively low levels of oil were present but the plants still appeared healthy and undamaged. Cheap Jerseys china They found that in these areas, the numbers of crabs, insects and spiders were reduced by up to 50 percent because of the oil exposure.

“This study demonstrates that appearances can be deceiving,” Pennings said. “Arthropods are quite vulnerable to oil exposure. These results are very important because they show that we can’t assume that the marsh is healthy just because the plants are still alive.”

However, the fact that some plant life remained intact in these areas apparently was key to how the arthropods recovered. When the UH researchers sampled the same areas a year later, all three groups appeared to have recovered, suggesting that arthropods affected by oil may recover if their host plants remain healthy.

“Salt marshes are commonly disturbed by natural events and, as a result, they may be able to also recover from oil spills if the oil disturbance is not too large,” Pennings said.

Oil spills pose a major threat to coastal wetlands, but the exact environmental costs are difficult to measure because experiments cannot replicate large environmental catastrophes.

Because each oil spill is different, McCall and Pennings cautioned against extrapolating their results to all oil spills.

“The effect of oil on the marsh is likely to vary depending on how much oil gets ashore and how much it has weathered,” McCall said. “In the case of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the marshes may have dodged a bullet because relatively little oil made it into the marshes, and the oil had weathered for several weeks.”

The bruising tone of the Conservative Party feud is raising questions about whether Cameron can unify his party even if his side triumphs in the June 23 in or out vote on EU membership.

The most prominent attack came from former London Mayor Boris Johnson and Justice Secretary Michael Gove, who used a letter in the Sunday Times to say that Cameron tactics are eroding public trust.

A Cabinet minister who backs a British exit, known as Brexit, said party leaders are too rich to understand how unchecked immigration is hurting working class Britons and another legislator said a vote of no confidence in Cameron leadership is probable regardless of the referendum outcome.

Johnson and Gove, leaders of the campaign, accused Cameron of misleading the public over Britain ability to check immigration if it remains in the EU. They said Cameron had broken his election pledge to reduce immigration because his hands were tied by the EU commitment to the free movement of people.

were promised repeatedly at elections that net immigration could be cut to the tens of thousands, they said. Cheap Jerseys china promise is plainly not achievable as long as the UK is a member of the EU. office called the letter transparent attempt to distract voters from the economic costs of leaving the EU.

Those favouring having Britain leave the EU have cited high immigration from other EU nations as the reason behind an increase in hospital waiting times, a shortage of places in state supported schools, and a softening of wages because of intense competition for jobs. Britain solid economy and job opportunities have been an enormous magnet to citizens of some other EU nations.

Conservative Party legislator Andrew Bridgen told BBC Radio that a challenge to Cameron leadership is probable because of widespread anger about the prime minister conduct of the campaign.

Soccer has been their salvation. It got them through the brutal war and eased their entry into a new life in a strange new place. It has connected them to where they’re from and has formed who they are.

And now as Bosnia makes its World Cup debut, soccer has given them hope that a still fractious country can rally around a common cause.

Mirza and Nedim Hasanbegovic don’t lay this heavy message on the lads in the Elkhorn United club. Cheap Jerseys from china Grinning, Mirza has the scrimmage losers drop, and he gives them 10 pushups. Nedim has the boys drill and drill and drill and says: “Nice and easy.”

Control the ball. Focus on what’s ahead. Nice and easy, boys.

That’s how the early years went for Nedim and Mirza in the former Yugoslavia. Nice and easy. Their mother was a corporate lawyer working for a food production company in Sarajevo. Their father was a land surveyor. Like everyone else, the Hasanbegovic boys ate, drank and slept a sport Americans call soccer but the rest of the world calls football. They rooted for the home team, FK Sarajevo. They wore the team’s color, maroon, and got new team scarves every year.

Yugoslavia won Olympic gold in soccer in 1960. Mirza and Nedim were too young to remember most of the country’s eight World Cup appearances.

But Mirza was old enough to tag along with their father, Esad, to FK Sarajevo games at a stadium so loud it gave him goose bumps. They were both old enough to kick the ball around at home with Esad. They were both old enough Mirza was 8 and Nedim was 5 to remember when their world turned upside down in the spring of 1992.

Yugoslavia, a nation of strong ethnic groups pulled together after World War I, was cracking apart. The Serbs had their own country of mostly Christian Orthodox. The Croats had their own country of mostly Catholics. And now Bosnia and Herzegovina had announced that it, too, was forming its own country. It included Bosniaks who were Muslim and Bosnians who were Croat or Serb.

Bosniaks were thrilled. Serbs were not. Soon after the announcement came the shooting. Then the bombing.

Then this life that the Hasanbegovics had built crumbled. The water was shut off. The electricity was shut off. The banks closed. Schools closed. Jobs closed.

It was not safe to play outside. With winter coming, it was cold because no one had glass anymore in their windows. You risked your life to walk to the water pump.

By November 1992, the boys were on a Red Cross bus with their grandmother and mother headed for refuge in Croatia. Their father, like the rest of the men, had to stay behind and fight, enduring 2 years of slaughter and horror.

Esad Hasanbegovic was injured but recovered, then escaped to Croatia and joined his family. Then, with their grandmother, all five joined an exodus of Bosnians. The Hasanbegovics came to Omaha, where another relative had fled.

A huge Bosnian community greeted them at the airport in Omaha.

Their mother, Edina, remembers the lights. So many lights. Lights that meant safety, normalcy and incredible relief.

Nedim, who was 8, remembers Baker’s. So much food on his first trip to a grocery store.

Mirza, who was 11, remembers soccer.

They couldn’t speak a lick of English, but someone asked if they would play for a club team. The boys found great refuge in moving a familiar ball down a familiar field.

On the field, the boys could forget their folks working two or three jobs. They could put aside the worries about Bosnia. They could lose any anxiety over learning English and just play.

“When we went on the soccer field,” Mirza says, “everything was OK.”

The brothers went to Oakdale Elementary. Their folks took English classes. Within five years, the Hasanbegovics had bought a house. The boys caught whatever soccer they could find on television and played their hearts out.

During his time at Westside High School, Mirza was named to The World Herald’s All Metro team. Youth Soccer National Championships.

Nedim earned distinction for helping his Westside Warriors earn their first Class A soccer championship in six years. His corner kick, headed into the goal by a teammate, clinched the win in 2004 over Lincoln Southeast.

Both brothers played for Hastings College. Nedim helped his team win its conference title in 2005. http://www.cheapnfljerseysonsale.top/ That year, the Great Plains Athletic Conference named Nedim soccer player of the year. In 2007, Region 3 bestowed the same honor and the Hastings coach called Nedim “one of the best players on our team.” Nedim was named to the all Nebraska team in 2009.

They both have college degrees from Hastings, and Mirza went on to earn a master’s degree from Wayne State in communication.

AMHERST Before practice Wednesday, University of Massachusetts basketball coach Derek Kellogg looked at assistant Shyrone Chatman and asked him an odd question.

you ready to practice today? Morgan and Javorn Farrell are sidelined with injuries for the foreseeable future, freshman center Izzy Freeman was in study hall and transfer Derrick Gordon, who while sitting out the season, can still practice with the team, is still on break until next week.

That left nine Minutemen dressed and ready participate Wednesday, meaning Chatman had to be ready to practice, not for practice a subtle change in prepositions that meant the former guard, who played 91 games over three seasons at Memphis, was a full participant in any sort of five on five simulations the Minutemen ran.

Unfortunately for UMass, the depth situation isn going to improve in games. wholesale nfl jerseys from china Gordon has to sit out the year. Morgan is done for the season. Farrell status is still uncertain, but he won even be re evaluated until next month. Freeman is allowed to play, but is unlikely to contribute much at this point. tipoff.

get up and down and score the ball and play a lot of guys that can handle the ball on the perimeter, Kellogg said. part of it is a concern, especially when we thin back there. lack of depth has him scaling back the team signature press heavy, fast paced tempo, but not so much that people forget it says “UMass” on its jerseys.

tend to tire a little bit more when you running and pressing for 40 minutes. We curtailed it a little bit, but we trying to keep the UMass brand and identity together, Kellogg said. reality is that we practiced a little bit less. We probably not as good in a few areas that I like to be, but at the same token, I rather the guys have energy and be fresh for the game than maybe get in two more side out of bounds plays or something against a thing you might see once a year. a new coach in Jim Ferry, the Dukes style doesn wholly differ from that of the team that UMass defeated in a run and gun 92 83 win in the Atlantic 10 quarterfinals at Mullins Center last season.

kind of similar, actually very similar, Kellogg said. playing four perimeter guys, they kind of playing a similar style of getting up and down the floor, mixing defenses up, and (Ferry) is doing a pretty good job with them for the personnel that he has. is doing his best to mix what older players like Sean Johnson, who scored 20 in the Dukes 80 69 win over UMass in Pittsburgh last season, with the new, such as freshman point guard Derrick Colter, who is tied for the team lead with Johnson, averaging 13.3 points per game thus far this season.

want to play fast, we want to play aggressively, but we have to play smarter and truly understand who each other is and who we are as a team, Ferry said. “We starting to get there, we starting to figure it out.”

Duquesne enters Thursday matchup having lost four straight games dating back to a Dec. 22 loss to Penn State, and although Ferry said his team looked markedly better in its most recent game, an 74 66 loss at home to Saint Joseph on Jan. 12., he was also realistic in his expectations.

think that if we can continue to play like we did on Saturday, we continue to see improvement and give ourselves a chance, Ferry said. coming into conference play that this was going to be difficult with such a young team.

The longer I used to talk to my salespeople, typically the more silent I would actually become.

This is not usually what sales managers do, and I certainly didn start out that way. I was always very much interested them in telling them how much I knew, and I wanted to direct them and lead them in the right direction, so instead of listening to them, I would typically not listen to them and just go on with my own agenda and what I thought that they should do in any particular sales situation.

I quickly learned that some of the best sales managers in the world do the exact opposite. Canada Goose sale That what this show here today is all about; silent might

If talking to your sales people about company strategies or goals, or interviewing your sales people, it more important to ask the right questions, than to wait patiently to get the right revealing sort of answers. Trying not to interrupt toward the end of the conversation, when they may let down their defenses and really tell you exactly what the situation is about. It helps you to discuss this critical, sensitive information.

We are going to give you 5 different techniques to use silent might to empower your sales people and enhance your own leadership.

When you are upset, you usually scold, lecture or yell. At least that is what most people do when they get upset. But try silence instead. You find that a deliberate pause makes others understand that you are annoyed. By showing some silence and blurting out an answer and letting it get the best of you. Showing silence and letting them continue on with whatever they are discussing is a great way to show concern so that they air out their grievance whatever the situation may be.

If you are always looking for chances to interrupt or talk over people, they may figure out that you are not interested in their comments at all. Keeping quiet can signal that you attentive and sensitive to others needs.

During my sales performance appraisal, I will typically allow time to be silent and let them share what they think about the performance appraisal or work contact form. This way they can air out their concerns and talk about things that are specific to them. The only way to do this is and to find out what is on their minds, is to stay silent, and you will also build trust at the same time.

By being quiet, you give them an opportunity to express their opinions at their own pace.

Silence is a good indicator of a well thought out response, instead of just shooting from the hip, because it carries more weight. That way you able to remain silent and stay patient, and it makes others realize that you intend to listen to them.

Demonstrate your curiosity and draw more out of whatever the situation is , a sales call, a sales strategy, a year end performance appraisal, any sort of given situation between yourself and your sale managers this is great opportunity to demonstrate your curiosity and at the same time underscore and reinforces your leadership.

If someone shares a tough decision that he or she is facing, your tendency is to rush in and give advice, and that is not always what the speaker really wants to hear. Silence shows that you are not trying to solve the problem necessarily. And not by saying anything, you can give someone the empathy that they are looking for. You relieve yourself of always having to come up with an answer as well.

They may figure out the answer to issue by continuing to talk. So act as a sounding

When you ask questions, purge yourself of your discomfort if you don get a prompt response. Some people need a few seconds to think about things before they speak. I would usually start my meetings by asking lots of questions and then keeping quiet. Some of my best meetings that I ever had were when I had talked very little and the group talked a tremendous amount. People will start talking once you give them the opportunity and you remain silent. http://www.canadagoosereview.top/ That gets us to a more open discussion. One of the best sales meeting that I ever had was when I had no slides, no agenda, just a wall chart with a bunch of magic markers and I said, there are some issues here, tell me what it is that is most concerning to you and then let have an open discussion on how we can collectively solve that particular problem.

Obviously me being the leader, I would help spearhead the solutions. This conversation turned from a bitch session, which I think most sales people are bound to, so make sure that you monitor this very carefully and make sure that it doesn turn into just a gripe session. go up as Tom Hanks said in Ryan they don go down, so listen to the grip from your sales people, because often behind some of the gripping you will find opportunity.

Another great thing to do as a silent sales manager, at the top of the agenda, say, you can make any complaint, and make any gripe, but there is one rule, you have to come up with at least one solution. That way you let yourself off the hook, but also your sales people will come up with some very good solutions to issues, some may not be realistic, but there might be ideas that you have never thought of. Open discussions are tremendous ways to get resolution and creative solutions to problems that you and your sales force are facing, but also it reinforces your ability to be a silent leader.

A great example of silent leadership is from James O book, A Z He talks about Michael Eisner and how he would use silent leadership and questioning to lead the remarkable transformation of Disney Corporation. The Disney that we think of now is this mammoth media power house. But there was a time, twenty or so years ago, when Disney was just an old, aged, not very fresh corporation with an aging library of movies from the 50 and 60 It was not the media powerhouse that it is today.

The man that was responsible for that transformation was Michael Eisner. He used a tremendous amount of silent leadership not only to turn around the corporation but to spurn and foster new ideas. Michael Eisner and his team had formed a design team to find out if either of these attractions could be turned into theme parks that made money.

The design team did all sorts of research for months and months, and they made a large presentation to Eisner. And Eisner listened carefully, and then asked each of the team members question after question. After he did it, it was clear to everyone in the group that he didn have any preconceived notion of what the park would look like, but he put himself in the shoes of his potential customers. What would they get for their money? How much would they spend in the park? Would they have lunch in the park? Would they make a return visit? All typical questions that he wanted to find out to determine if people would go to either of their places. Is this going to be a money making venture for Disney?

Eisner grilled the team until they had realized that they weren as far along in their thinking as they had thought because he started to poke holes in their preconceived notions of what either one of these attractions could do for the Disney Corporation.

The team back to the drawing board but they had a slightly tighter deadline that he put them on to find out if they would exercise the options that they had on these properties.

A month later, they came back, and returned in front of Eisner. As he queried them, a consensus grew and built among the team members that they didn think that any their ideas could float. They eventually decided not to move forward on these lease options on either one of these properties. They still sit in Los Angeles to this day.

One of the people in the group said, because of Eisner questioning and his long pauses and long silences, we finally got the answer to the basic questions that there was no way in hell that anyone could make a silk purse out of this sow ear! As I said, Disney passed on the option.

Let look at why this is an example of silent leadership.

During the entire process, Eisner never issued a command, he never barked out an order, he never raised his voice, never badgered or punished or threatened anybody. He didn invent the strategy, he didn contribute any usable ideas all that he used was silence and questions in order to get his team to come to a conclusion so that it would be the best decision possible.

In this particular case it was to pass on the option.

It could be said, that because of his questioning and silence, he led that effort and led it brilliantly, because he created the conditions for his team to do their best work effectively.

Instead of investing millions of dollars, and finding out later on that it was a money losing venture, they passed on the offer because of his silent leadership.

UM guard Danny Isidora, a 6 4, 308 pound redshirt freshman, sustained a broken foot that will require surgery this week, the Miami Herald learned Sunday afternoon.

Isidora, who graduated from Weston Cypress Bay High with a grade point average approaching 4.0, sat out last year to hone his craft. Cheap Jerseys free shipping He was considered by coaches so promising a talent that he was listed as the backup to preseason All Atlantic Coast Conference guard Brandon Linder on the depth chart distributed just before fall practice began Saturday.

Junior Malcolm Bunche is listed as the starting left guard, with 6 5, 320 pound junior Jon Feliciano behind him. Feliciano started all 12 games last season at left guard.

It has not been revealed how Isidora got injured or how long he will be out. His surgery is expected by the weekend.

As for the 5 11, 187 pound Crawford, he is part of a young cornerback unit that was forced to grow on the fly during an often painful 2012. UM’s pass defense ranked 102nd nationally of 120 FBS teams last season, allowing 268.5 passing yards per game.

But corners such as Crawford, sophomore Tracy Howard and junior Ladarius Gunter pushed through the struggles to emerge stronger and more equipped to face this year’s challenges, they and their coaches insist.

First teamers Crawford and Gunter are wearing the coveted black jerseys now, but they realize it’s not worth their time to ponder.

“We’re all helping each other,” said Crawford, who played at Tampa Plant and covered now UM receiver Malcolm Lewis in the 2011 state title game, which Plant won. “It really doesn’t mean anything to start off camp in a black jersey.

“It’s all about what you do during the season.”

Crawford, 19, was discovered by UM, Golden said last season, as coaches were watching Miami prospects Lewis, Howard and others during the state title game.

“‘Who is this guy covering Malcolm Lewis?'” Golden said they kept asking.

“He had a really, really, really good spring,” UM defensive coordinator Mark D’Onofrio said Sunday of Crawford, who is on the same side as redshirt freshman Nate Dortch.

Crawford said he asked for Brandon McGee’s jersey number after the season because of McGee and “all the great corners who wear or wore No.21 like Deion Sanders and Patrick Peterson and Janoris Jenkins” (who plays with McGee on the St. Louis Rams). “I want to uphold that number.”

The 6 2, 196 pound Gunter transferred to UM from Fort Scott Community College in Kansas before last season. He’s a Montgomery, Ala., native who was never recruited by Alabama, but he didn’t care because he always loved UM and former safety Sean Taylor.

“He just crushed people,” said Gunter, who started five of his 12 games last season, with 27 tackles, an interception, two fumble recoveries and six pass breakups.

“Hopefully, we’ll turn those breakups into interceptions,” he said. “We’ve all settled down from last season.

“I know the playbook inside and out and won’t be thinking as much as reacting.”

Gunter has a much appreciated knack for bumping receivers off their path.

“You don’t want a receiver to get a free release,” he said, “so you throw him off his route and mess up the timing between him and the quarterback.”

Howard, the nation’s No. 1 cornerback out of Miramar, is battling for the starting spot behind Gunter. He ended Sunday’s practice by intercepting Stephen Morris and knows the depth chart is ever changing.

“I was young and got caught up into it,” said Howard of his up and down freshman year. “Now I just come out here and get better. I don’t even worry about the jersey.”

The effects of this shift will not immediately show up in harmonic distortion measurements, but will however clearly be visible in intermodulation distortion measurements. Secondly, although the distortion of an optimized class B can be kept low, it will consist mainly of higher harmonics, whereas class A has mainly 2nd or 3rd order harmonics. Finally there is the issue of PCB routing and layout.

These do not qualify as jokes, because there is nothing funny about putting people in degrading pigeonholes. Why? Because a few years ago I did a similar search and came up with essentially nothing. Those sites that talked about the illegality of polygamy basically listed where such bans were in effect but gave no reasons why, which of course was object of the exercise.

So who really killed Marilyn Monroe? For a long while I assumed it was the Kennedys who used her and abused her. And scripted the apparent ‘suicide’ in 1962. Then I swung around and started to blame her insufficiently affectionate mother. Of course some players on bad teams really are bad and no longer deserve to draw an NHL salary. But I suspect Bozak could help a team win a Stanley Cup. He had decent enough results in Toronto.

The world is on the cusp of a revolution in the use of drones with everything from crop analysis to search and rescue missions part of their potential, writes Richard Fitzpatrick

When amphibious cars were marketed in the early 1960s, it was said that they would revolutionise drowning.

It remains to be seen what impact hoverbikes will have on the drone industry and motorbikes. The hoverbike is a drone or a pilotless aircraft. canada goose outlet It flies like a helicopter, but is supposedly rugged according to the UK based engineering company Malloy Aeronautics, and easier to fly.

The hoverbike is one of several offbeat purposes that drones are being put to. They include the brilliant and the bizarre. Last year, an ambulance drone was prototyped in the Netherlands that can deliver a defibrillator to a patient suffering from a heart attack at a speed of 96kph, a development that could potentially save lives. Drones are also, for example, being used to fish instead of fishing rods.

LOS ANGELES Put away those shorts and tank tops, Chicago, and get ready for another vortex. what some people are calling the unseasonably cold temperatures expected to come to the Northern and Eastern United States next week, as a patch of cold air flows from northern Canada to the Great Lakes area and slips eastward toward the coast.

The temperature in some areas will slide as low as 15 to 20 degrees below normal, and some states are likely to see cold rain and thunderstorms as the air mass moves in, according to the National Weather Service.

The upper Midwest could see some of the coldest weather, with highs in the low to mid 60s, and parts of the Chicago area could even see lows overnight dip into the 40s, forecasters say.

Residents as far south as Nashville could feel a 10 degree drop.

The cool air isn expected to be anything like the polar vortex of this January, which brought record breaking subzero temperatures, school closures and wreaked havoc on air travel for weeks.

wouldn call it a polar vortex, Mike Gillispie, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, said of the latest temperature shift. wholesale nfl jerseys from china going to be a shot of some colder air but it not going to hang around for more than a few days. some areas could flirt with record low temperatures for July, said Andy Foster, meteorologist for the National Weather Service Central region.

The cool down will bring little relief for the Western Seaboard, which will continue to sit in a ridge of high pressure that has sustained high temperatures and drought conditions for months.

In fact, the warm air mass parked on the West Coast is helping create a trough between Canada Hudson Bay and the Southwest, where the cold air will be flowing.

Prince William jokes with his father Prince Charles after being presented with a jacket and hat from the Canadian Olympic Team Uniform at a environmental heritage event in Vancouver in 1998.

“These uniforms are so much more than just fabric and design ideas,” Marcel Aubut, president of the COC, said during the bilingual presentation. “They are the culmination of so much hard work. This uniform is not only their clothing. It is also the uniform of the country.”

More than a dozen Olympic and Paralympic athletes from across Canada modelled the uniforms, which combine vintage looking design with modern touches such as tailored silhouettes and stylized images of beavers, polar bears and loons. Cheap Jerseys china Individual items include a bright red, wool duffel coat with decorative toggle buttons and a black stripe accent at the waist, a sleek soft shell black jacket with the team crest on the left arm, a fleece hoodie with Canada emblazoned across the chest and retro chic caps and toques in the team colours.

Team Canada will wear the uniforms during public ceremonies and inside the athletes’ village. It will not be competing in them, although they were designed to foster confidence. The Paralympic uniforms were especially designed for ease of movement, said Gatan Tardif, president of the Canadian Paralympic Committee.

“I am really convinced that our Canadian athletes will be the best dressed team in Sochi,” Mr. Tardif added. “We will be the envy of the world.”

Designed by an in house Hudson’s Bay committee headed by the company’s recently appointed vice president of design, Hilary Kelley, the uniforms the athletes will wear are being manufactured in Canada, although similar items produced for sale to the public will be made offshore. Past Olympic uniforms in both Canada and the United States have been criticized in recent years for being produced outside their respective countries. Hudson’s Bay was careful to avoid that kind of controversy this time around, emphasizing patriotism.

Among the influences that inspired the collection, Ms. Kelley said, was the work of legendary Canadian painter Emily Carr. The colour blocked apparel also references Russian Constructivism, a nod to the host of the Games.

Hudson’s Bay’s association with the Olympics dates back to 1936, when Canada’s ski team wore a striped blanket coat as part of its uniform, noted company president Bonnie Brooks, wearing the stripes on a cardigan. Its relationship with the COC will extend to 2020, it was also announced Wednesday.

As for the athletes, reaction to the uniforms appeared genuinely enthusiastic. “I am looking forward to looking good at my first Olympics,” said Justine Dufour Lapointe, a freestyle moguls skier.

“The uniforms represent our country’s drive to be No. 1,” added Jean Luc Brassard, a gold medalist at the 1994 Olympics and assistant chef de mission for Sochi 2014, which kicks off on Feb. 7.
