“No, no, no, I still have to do a lot of 800s,” he insisted. “Hopefully, they send me to the World Relays this year for the 4×8,” he projected. “But I have a couple of 800s to run at the All-Comers meets.” Those events are scheduled for May and June in the weeks leading up to the National Senior Championships. “The 400 hurdles is the main focus for this season,” said the former University of the West Indies star, “but the 800m is still in the mix.” Asked what event was his priority, he responded: “If I may say, I do prefer running the hurdles than the 800m right now.” Noting respectfully that Jamaica’s top 400m hurdlers now include Olympic finalist Annsert Whyte and two-time World Junior champion Jaheel Hyde, he said: “I have something that they don’t have, 1.47 going 800.” His best time in the 800m is 1:47.30. “We’re all in the mix going 400m which is 46-mid so right now,” he continued. “It’s just for me to perfect the technique and I’ll be right there with them.” Hibbert’s foray into the 400m hurdles continues this Saturday at the UTech Classic. MORE 800S TO RUN Jowayne Hibbert, Jamaica’s reigning 800 metre champion, is trying something new. Hibbert is experimenting with the 400 metres hurdles this season, and the early results have encouraged him. The former Kingston College athlete says his 800m strength is an asset to him in his new venture. “My coach, Mr Fitz Coleman, and I sat down and we thought about giving the 400 metre hurdles a chance this season,” Hibbert said during last week’s Inter-Collegiate Track and Field Championships. His two attempts at the event have yielded times of 52.33 and 51.99 seconds respectively. “It’s been going good so far,” he said. “I’m catching the technique,” he assessed. “I already have the strength and I have the basic speed for it,” Hibbert listed, “So it only gets better from here.” The 2012 and 2013, 2015 Inter-Collegiate 800m champion isn’t dropping the two-lap run completely.

Namibia’s deserts are rich in supplies of uranium, which are drawing increased foreign interest, especially from Russia. Uranium is used to produce nuclear fuel, which is a carbon-neutral source of energy. Yellowcake is a concentrated mixture of uranium oxides that is further refined to extract pure uranium. (Images: Wikimedia Commons)Nicky RehbockFind out more about using MediaClubSouthAfrica.com materialLucrative uranium deposits in Namibia’s deserts, which could make the Southern African country a top producer of the radioactive element, are drawing increasing foreign interest. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev will visit the nation this week to revive cooperation in uranium mining and energy production.Uranium is used to produce nuclear fuel, which is a carbon-neutral source of electrical energy.Although Russia has shown interest in Namibia’s uranium resources since 2007, “nothing has happened” since then, said Robin Sherbourne, group economist for South Africa’s Nedbank in Windhoek, Namibia. “We’ll see what happens this time.”Renewed global interestUranium exploration projects are spreading across Namibia, which aims to benefit from renewed global interest in nuclear power with its large uranium deposits, currently only mined at two locations in the country.The main mine, Rossing, 65km inland from the seaside town of Swakopmund, runs 5km long and 350m deep. It’s thought to be the world’s fifth largest primary uranium mine and its reserves are estimated to last until 2020, if production continues at the current below-capacity levels.The majority of Rossing is owned by Australian mining giant Rio Tinto with a 68.6% stake. Iran (15%), South Africa (10%) and Namibia (3%) also have shares in the operation.Rossing was threatened with closure in 2003 when uranium prices plunged as the global supply was inflated by enriched nuclear fuel from the former Soviet Union. Fears of climate change have, however, renewed the search for carbon-neutral energy, thus pushing uranium prices up again.In 2006 Rossing announced a US$112-million (R902.4-million) expansion drive, which, together with the Langer Heinrich mine, 50km southeast of Rossing, has propelled Namibia to the top ranks of global producers, behind only Canada, Kazakhstan and Australia. The country now accounts for 10% of the world’s production.Langer Heinrich is estimated to have a reserve base of 24.5-million tons of uranium, making it productive for 27 years with the potential for expansion of the reserves and mine life given the favourable surrounding geology. It is owned by Australia’s Paladin Resources.New development aheadSome 35km north of Rossing is Trekkopje, which is owned by French group Areva. The $750-million (R6-billion) project will have a shallow open-pit mine, as 80% of the uranium ore is less than 15m deep there. Production is expected to begin by the end of 2009.With this development, “Namibia could increase its production to 42-million pounds [about 19 051 tons] within five years, which could make us number one”, Sherbourne said.But to achieve this, Namibia must first tackle two major obstacles: the desert has no water needed to control the dust and radiation from the uranium mines and the country lacks enough energy to power its projects.Possible solutions include the building of a desalination plant on the Atlantic coast, so ample supplies of seawater can be converted to a useable medium for the mines. The Namibian government is also considering new coal- or gas-fired plants and has committed to a policy of supplying its own electricity from nuclear power by 2018.Do you have queries or comments about this article?

Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now Ever in a seriously foul mood? Ever find yourself in a bad mood for no reason at all (or no good reason anyway)?I was at the eye doctors’s office for a 4:30 appointment. At 4:45, one of the doctor’s assistants did the pre-examination. And then I sat for 45 minutes, the first 30 minutes unhappily stewing that “these people” would have the “audacity” to “steal my time” (something I can’t recover).Here’s my recipe to be miserable.What are you telling yourself about the situation?What you tell yourself about an experience determines what impact it has on your attitude and your emotional state.I told myself that the people at the eye doctor’s office were rude. I told myself they were stealing my time. I told myself that they were being disrespectful. And guess how that made me feel about the experience and the people?It doesn’t matter that none of these things were true. I experienced them anyway.What are you telling yourself about what it means?One great way to work yourself into a crooked mood is to tell yourself something means more than it does.I told myself that I could never reclaim the time I lost. I told myself that this time could been invested in some better experience than sitting in an eye doctor’s crowded waiting room. My life is too short to waste time!How much did the 45 minutes cost me in the big scheme of things? Not all that much. But what I told myself it meant was almost enough to make me complain (something that would have made a lot of other people share in my poor state).What words are you using to describe the experience to yourself?The words you use to describe an experience make up that experience.I told myself that this was “miserable.” I told myself that “if there is a Hell,” it looks a lot like a doctor’s office or a Bureau of Motor Vehicles office (although the BMV in my neighborhood would shame any doctor’s office).Having told myself that I was miserable, it was true.What’s Really True?What I told myself about the situation wasn’t likely true. It’s more likely that a lot of people are trying to visit the eye doctors, some to use their insurance before it expires. It’s more likely that the doctors were working hard to accommodate as many people as possible. Even if this isn’t true, this is what I decided to tell myself. I assumed good intentions.I didn’t really “lose 45 minutes of my life” either. I had my phone and my tablet with me. I set up an appointment, sent two emails, and drafted a blog post. Because I had the tools with me, I used most of that time to do something productive (I toyed with the idea of using their waiting room as my office and making calls, but thought better of it).Instead of deciding to be miserable, I decided I would choose to be productive and happy to have the time to work uninterrupted.The same tools you use to put yourself and foul and unproductive state can be used to create a positive, productive attitude. It’s a choice.QuestionsWhat’s your recipe for a foul, nasty, unproductive mood?What meaning do you give something or someone to create that attitude and emotional state?What words do you incant to create a poor attitude?How do you reverse this recipe?

Low-power circuit through parallel operation of control and detectionIn conventional MEMS accelerometers, a common electrode is used when alternately switching between control and detection operations. This method consumes much power as a high control voltage is required to switch between operations due to the short duration of the control period. In the proposed sensor, independent electrodes are provided for control and detection, and therefore control and detection operations can be performed simultaneously, and the high voltage required to prepare for control can be eliminated, resulting in a 40 percent reduction in control voltage required for the control operations.In evaluating the technology developed, it was found that the sensitivity (noise level 30ng/√Hz or less) required for sensors used in oil & gas exploration, could be realized with a power consumption of 20mW, which is approximately half that of conventional levels. As a result, it will be possible to apply MEMS accelerometers to situations which require a large number of high-sensitivity low-power sensors, such as the detection of extremely weak ground or building vibrations.Hitachi intends to apply this sensor to various applications including next generation oil & gas exploration, and infrastructure monitoring, to contribute to the realization of a comfortable, safe and secure society.

Control IC, detection IC and MEMS device in the accelerometer (left), moving mass inside the MEMS device (right). Credit: Hitachi Low-noise MEMS using a moving mass with unique perforationsMEMS accelerometers consist of a moving mass suspended by weak springs and circuits to detect and control movement. The circuits detect the movement of the mass generated by the vibration or the acceleration as electrical charge signals, and control the mass based on the signal to keep it to a balanced position, however, the noise caused by the air molecules colliding with the surface of the moving mass result in reduced sensitivity. In this development, unique perforations with different entry/exit diameters based on fluid dynamics analysis were made on the moving mass, consisting of an SOI substrate, resulting in a halving of air molecule collisions. Tiny sensor used in smart phones could create urban seismic network Hitachi Ltd. today announced the development of a high-sensitivity low-power MEMS accelerometer that can detect extremely weak ground and building vibrations by combining sophisticated MEMS technology with circuit technology. The sensor achieves a comparable sensitivity to that of sensors for oil & gas exploration (noise level 30ng/√Hz) with less than half the power consumption (20mW). Hitachi intends to apply this sensor to various applications including next generation oil & gas exploration, and infrastructure monitoring, to contribute to the realization of a comfortable, safe and secure society. Citation: High-sensitivity low-power MEMS accelerometer for detecting extremely weak ground and building vibrations (2018, February 16) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-02-high-sensitivity-low-power-mems-accelerometer-extremely.html The progress over recent years in the fusion of OT (Operational Technology) and IT (Information Technology) has led to an increasing expectation on high performance sensors, which represent a key component. For example, in oil & gas exploration, sensors with three orders of magnitude higher sensitivity than automotive sensors are required as they need to be able to detect extremely weak underground reflection waves resulting from applied artificial earthquakes. Also, power consumption of these devices needs to be drastically reduced to enhance feasibility, as use-cases such as next-generation resource exploration may need to deploy sensors in the order of one-million at sites, or may require a battery-life of many years, as in infrastructure monitoring for bridges and buildings. In conventional MEMS accelerometers, however, it was difficult to achieve high sensitivity and low power consumption at the same time since power consumption increases proportionally to the square of the reduction in noise.To overcome this challenge, Hitachi developed a high-sensitivity low-power MEMS accelerometer by converging sophisticated combination of MEMS and circuit technologies. Features of the developed technologies are as follows. Explore further This document is subject to copyright.
