Scouts’ Promise: Respect

first_imgSixteen-year-old Southampton Boy Scout Nicholas Maddock trudged through the grass from headstone to headstone at Section 36 of Calverton National Cemetery Saturday morning. Stopping at each one, he bent down and visually judged a four-inch space away from the white marble marker, then strategically placed an American flag on a grave, making sure not to obscure the name chiseled into the stone. It was part of a yearly ritual and something he considers his job as a Boy Scout — honoring veterans.“This is the least we can do, to come out here and pay our respects to veterans, to the country,” said Nicholas, one of about 15 scouts who travelled with Boy Scout Troop 58 from Southampton to the cemetery as part of the Suffolk County Council of the Boy Scouts of America’s annual flag placement event marking Memorial Day.Hundreds of scouts and volunteers from other organizations placed flags at the grave sites of more than 200,000 service men and women and their spouses who are buried at the cemetery.Ben Halsey, 11, said the event made him feel good “because it feels like we’re honoring our veterans that served in our country and we are giving them recognition for what they did.”Due to the volume of volunteers, parents ferrying scouts lined up in a convoy of cars for hours before the event, to make sure the scouts were at their assigned posts on time. Once inside, a pack or troop was assigned a section, and then prior to the flag placement, they said the Pledge of Allegiance and observed a moment of silence.“It’s a sign of respect,” said Paul Delzatto, 11.After the brief ceremony concluded, the scouts were each handed a bundle of flags and they spread out over the grass in a wave of blue, tan, and brown, placing flags, methodically, in front of every gravestone. The section was covered in flags within 15 minutes, giving new meaning to the Boy Scout promise of doing their best.But before the organized placements begin, scouts with family members buried in the cemetery are allowed to place flags in a private moment with their families.“It’s really special,” said Kelly Glanz, whose father, Alan Dunkirk, a Vietnam veteran, was buried at the cemetery after he died in 2009. Glanz said she has participated in the event every year since her son, Dylan, 10, has been in school.Glanz and her family also visit at other times of the year like the holidays and her father’s birthday, however, she noted the event is the only time of the year that the cemetery is congested, with cars piled up along the grass, and people spilling out on to the roadway.“It’s amazing,” she said.Calverton National Cemetery is spread out over 1000 acres of land nestled between County Road 25 and North Country Road in the wooded hamlet of Wading River. Despite its sleepy location, it is one of the busiest cemeteries in the United States. Calverton is considered one of the crown jewels of the National Cemetery Administration for both its location and design.Notable Long Islanders buried at the cemetery include World War II flying ace Francis “Gabby” Gabreski, New York City Police detective and actor Edward Walter Egan, who was the inspiration for Popeye Doyle in The French Connection, and Navy SEAL Lt. Michael Murphy, who posthumously received the Medal of Honor for his actions in Afghanistan. More recently, Air National Guard 106th Rescue Wing Technical Sergeant Dashan Briggs, who died in a helicopter crash in Iraq with seven others back in March, was interred at the cemetery.However, the cemetery is also the final resting place to soldiers and sailors who do not have name recognition and their graves are not often visited, if at all, throughout the year, let alone on Memorial Day.“[The flag placement] just puts things in perspective,” said Boy Scout Troop 58’s Southampton Coordinator Lynn Maddock, who has participated in the event with her husband and sons since 2012.“They sacrificed a lot for us. We are only sacrificing — what — two hours to do all this and then go home?” added Mark Maddock.United States Navy Corpsman Ernest Pinaud, Boy Scouts Committee Chair from Troop 91 in Ronkonkoma, who made the rounds to thank each scout for their service, told the group that when he joined the service, he did so with the intention of preserving the next generation.“You know why I joined the service? It was because of you,” Pinaud said. He explained a lot of work is involved in the flag placement. There is a great deal of planning involved, he said, and the flags only stay up for a week before they are collected again and stored away for another year.“They do a tremendous job,” he said of the scouts. “You don’t realize a lot of work is done during the winter. We do it every year, so it is easier, and next Saturday, we will be here to take [the flags] up.”The flags are carefully curated in large wooden boxes — numbered for each plot section — that are stored at the cemetery until next Memorial Day.For Caitlin Donohoe, committee chair of Troop 58, said the event reminds her that Memorial Day is really about honoring the men and women of the armed forces, not barbecuing and retail sales as it has come to be known in popular culture.“Everybody is all barbecuing, and then you come here and it grounds you and makes you realize what it’s about,” she said.peggy@indyeastend.com Sharelast_img read more

Procurement office halts S-Bahn Nürnberg contract award

first_imgGERMANY: On April 28 the Südbayern procurement office of the Oberbayern regional authority cancelled the award of an operating contract for the S-Bahn Nürnberg suburban network to National Express Group.Incumbent DB Regio lodged an appeal following the decision on February 2 by Bayern railway authority BEG to name National Express Rail GmbH as preferred bidder for two parallel 12-year contracts to operate Nürnberg S-Bahn services from December 2018. According to local reports, DB Regio has informed its staff that it expects NEG to be completely excluded from any retendering process. The Sudbayern procurement office found that the documents and other evidential material supplied by NEG during the initial bidding process had not met the specified formats. It said its rejection of NEG had been made on ‘formal and substantive grounds’, but that the decision did not reflect on any aspect of the quality of NEG’s bid.In response, DB Regio said the procurement agency’s assessment was a ‘first stage victory’. However, both NEG and BEG have the right to respond to the annulment by appealing to the higher administrative court in München within 14 days.last_img read more

10 ways to reduce your technology bill

first_imgIt probably is possible to thrive in this world without technology, but it sure is a lot more difficult.If you want to be a part of the broader world, then you’ll need to be, well, connected. Alas, that technology is so important can be a little frustrating. It can have a negative impact on your finances, for example. It’s an investment that you have to make if you’re going to be at your best; you don’t get to make the rules, you just have to play with them! Fortunately, you don’t have to stay stuck with a high tech bill.There are ways that you can keep it to a minimum. We take a look at a few such ways below. Incorporate them into your life, and you’ll find that your tech’s influence on your bank balance becomes less severe.1. Keep Your Items In Good ConditionYou can reduce your technology bill by reducing the amount of technology that you have to buy. There are people who go through three or four smartphones each year because they’ve been broken or lost. And then there are others that keep the same smartphone for years on end. It doesn’t take a math genius to figure out which option would lead to a huge tech bill. So make sure that you’re keeping good care of all of your devices. You can buy protective cases, handle with care, and, in the case of your smartphone, ensure that you’re keeping it extra safe when you go for a night on the town.2. Avoid Buying NewIt can be oh so tempting to buy a brand new phone or laptop. You’re walking through the tech aisle of the store, and your resistance to the purchase is weakening with every passing moment. But if there’s one thing that you should convince you that it’s not the smartest idea you’ll have (when it comes to your bank balance, at least), it’s this: you can save up to 40% by electing to buy a refurbished model of the device instead. You’ll save a lot of money on the sticker price, and you’ll have what looks and feels like a new item. It’s not like buying second-hand, which you can understand people’s resistance to. It’s pretty difficult to tell the difference between a new item and a refurbished one.3. Buy at the Right TimeOf course, there will be times when you do want or need to buy an item new. There aren’t always refurbished options available, after all. In this case, you can help to reduce your spend by buying at the right time. There are times of the year when retailers hold excellent sales, such as around Black Friday, in the new year, and just before the summer season begins. Rather than buying your item when prices are highest, try to exercise a little bit of patience, and buy when there are good deals on.4. Sell Your Old GoodsDid you know that, on average, a UK home contains thousands of pounds worth of unused goods? And it’ll be little surprise if a sizeable chunk of that value is comprised of old tech devices. When people get a new phone or laptop, they’re usually so excited about the device that they just put the old one in a drawer, where it remains forever. Rather than just having it gather dust, look at selling your devices online. If it has been a couple of years since your last clearout, then you might raise enough money to cover the cost of your new device. Some people keep their old smartphones and laptops for nostalgia’s sake, but they’re just taking up space and losing value — sell them, and put some money into your bank account.5. Downgrade Your PlanThe hardware is just the beginning when it comes to your tech costs. Let’s not forget that a device that isn’t connected to the internet isn’t much of a device at all. But here’s the problem: when people choose their home internet and smartphone data plan, they usually spend too much. They pick a plan that is more than they need. So look at downgrading your plan. You probably don’t need the fastest internet plan if all you’re doing is browsing the web. To get the right plan for your smartphone, you should take a look at Half Cooked; they outline the prices and the pros and cons of each network. Take a look around, and fight the deal that’s right for you. It makes no sense to buy for excessive amounts of data or high-speed internet if you’re not going to use them.6. Consolidate Your TechWe think that we need to have multiple devices in order to live our lives to the fullest. But in fact, this isn’t the case. It’s likely that you don’t need to have multiple different devices, depending on what you need. A lot of people like the idea of a tablet, for example, but it may not be needed if you already have a laptop and a pretty capable (not to mention large) smartphone. When you look at what you’re doing with your tablet, ask yourself if it’s really anything that you couldn’t do with your other devices. It’ll likely be the case. Then you can sell the device that’s no longer needed, raise some money, and simplify your digital life. It’s a win-win-win situation.Credit: Pexels7. Avoid Too Many SubscriptionsThere’s been a huge rise in subscription services in recent years. Indeed, it has become the business model of choice. But just as with all your offline subscriptions, you’ll find that the number — and thus cost — of your online subscriptions quickly add up to a pretty penny. If you have Netflix, Amazon Prime, Spotify, and a yoga and meditation subscription, among other things, then you’ll find that your tech bill comes in pretty high each month. You can probably whittle it down to just two or three subscriptions if you’re strict enough.8. Buying SoftwareIt’s not just subscriptions that can cost a lot of money, either. If you need software for your creative projects or for your business, then you might end up spending a lot just to have access to the software that can bring out all of the capabilities of your machine. But the thing that people don’t always remember is that there are often open-source alternatives out there, which are available free of charge. They can be a little harder to find, admittedly, and there’s rarely a slick website that guides you through every step of the process. They do, however, save you a lot of money, so it’s worth persevering.9. Shared AppliancesThere’s something about cars that is becoming increasingly obvious: we just don’t need to have one each. We should be sharing; it would do so much good for our finances, community, and the world in general. The same principle, albeit to a lesser degree, can also be applied to our tech. If we live with multiple people, then we don’t all need to have multiple devices. Everyone should have their own phone, sure, but tablets? They can probably be shared. It’ll allow you to have access to all kinds of tech, without the high bill.10. Be Happy With What You HaveFinally, one of the best ways to reduce your tech bill is to simply be happy with what you have. If you learn to love your devices, even their imperfections, then you’ll be less inclined to spend money on new items.last_img read more

Advantech Wireless Unveils C-band Low Noise Block Converter for Troposcatter Applications

first_imgAdvantech Wireless has released a new C-band Low Noise Block (LNB) for Advanced Tropospheric Scattering Transmission Applications. Tropospheric scattering is a method of communicating with microwave radio signals over distances of over 300 km, using the troposphere.The new Tropo LNB from Advantech is designed for use in troposcatter receiver applications where low noise and high reliability are critical as well as in systems that operate in the 4.4 to 5.0 GHz frequency range. These new LNB’s are addressing a new generation of tropo scattering systems that are designed to operate in the L-band instead of the traditional 70 MHz IF band.These changes translate into an overall system cost reduction by removing the need for separate frequency converters, LNA’s and multiple modems. Advantech’s highly efficient and powerful solution is ideal for tactical mobile applications where size, weight and power efficiency are critical. These advanced systems are excellent solutions for scenarios with high data rate and long haul requirements.Tropospheric communication links allow for real time communication where currently there is no satellite coverage, where satellite delays are unacceptable and where satellite bandwidth is cost prohibitive. A tropo link investment can easily be recovered in less than two years of equivalent satellite bandwidth cost. Advantech designed tropo systems take advantage of both advanced L-band Tropo modems as well as the state of the art SSPA (Solid State Power Amplifier) technology that Advantech has built its 30 year reputation on.
