Cloudiness and thunderstorms associated with a small low pressurearea located a few hundred miles east of the Leeward Islands continue to show signs of organization. Although dry air may hamper development, the overall environment is expected to be generallyconducive, and a tropical depression could form during the next day or so. The low is forecast to move westward at around 10 mph, and interests from the Leeward Islands and Puerto Rico to Hispaniola andthe southeastern Bahamas should monitor its progress. An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate this disturbance this afternoon, if necessary. Regardless of development,areas of heavy rains and gusty winds are expected to move across the Leeward Islands starting later today.* Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…50 percent.

Improving Plug-In Electric Cars Citation: Raptor: An Electric Car Nearly Anyone Would Want to Drive (2009, July 9) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2009-07-raptor-electric-car.html This document is subject to copyright.

I love my Prius, it’s true. But sometimes, I look at the Dodge Charger (I’m watching Burn Notice this summer) and think, “What a cool car.” And when we think of cool cars, it’s hard to keep the image of a muscle car or a sports car from popping up. But when you think of environmentally friendly, those types of cars don’t even come to mind. Perhaps the latest creation from a software engineer will changes the stereotypes. Photo credit: NBC Bay Area Explore further In order to build the Raptor, Raul Atkinson ordered a Dayton car kit and then built the necessary equipment into it. Gas 2.0 reports on the effort put into creating the Electric Raptor:”The project took 2 years and an estimated 2000 hours to complete, but the results are pretty impressive. Using a 3-phase AC induction motor and 290 nickel-hydride batteries, Atkinson’s “Raptor” reaches 0-60 mph in 8 seconds, with a top speed of 100 mph. Maximum range is about 80 miles, with a full recharge taking just 3 hours. That is much less time spent recharging than most other production electric cars can boast.”Of course, this is a kit car, and it doesn’t have the same rigorous crash test standards and other cars have. But, even at $85,000, the Electric Raptor still costs less than current incarnations of similar cars that are all-electric. But what if it were mass-produced? If car companies could figure out how to build the kinds of all-electric cars that people would want to drive, for a price that they could afford, we’d be much further down the road to independence from fossil fuels.Assuming we could switch our grid to rely more on renewables, of course. No matter how cool the car is, if you have to charge it using coal or oil generated electricity, it’s still not as earth-friendly as it could be.© 2009 PhysOrg.com
Notwithstanding a raging row over remarks crediting Pakistan for peaceful elections in the state, Chief Minister Mufti Mohammed Sayeed on Monday remained unfazed saying he stood by what he had said yesterday.”What I said, I stand by it,” he said after assuming office today in civil Secretariat. However, he appeared to have tempered his yesterday’s remark when he said “this voter slip has been given to us by Constitution of India. The people of state have more faith in this (right).” Also Read – Need to understand why law graduate’s natural choice is not legal profession: CJIAs Sayeed’s daughter and PDP Chief, Mehbooba Mufti stood by her father’s statement, remarking he had not said anything wrong, a group of PDP MLAs came out with a signed statement demanding that the Centre hand over the mortal remains of Guru, who was hanged and buried inside Tihar Jail in Delhi on February nine, 2013.She, however, admitted that there would be teething problems as both parties had diametrically opposite views on various issues. “We will have teething problems and everything can’t be hunky dory overnight”, she said. Also Read – Health remains key challenge in India’s development: KovindThe Government was on the backfoot in Parliament where the Opposition raked up the issue and asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to make a statement on the floor of the House the Centre’s stand.Home Minister Rajnath Singh distanced the government from Sayeed’s claim and said the credit for peaceful elections in the state should go to the Election Commission, people of the state, Army and the security forces.Singh said he wanted to make it clear that “the government and my party (BJP) fully disassociate themselves” from the remarks made by Sayeed. Not satisfied with Singh’s reply, the Congress walked out of the Lok Sabha saying only the Prime Minister’s clarification would matter.Leader of Congress Mallikarjun Kharge said since the Prime Minister was told by Sayeed that he feels that the credit should go to Hurriyat, militants and Pakistan for smooth conduct of J and K assembly polls, Modi should make a statement. “Only PM can explain,” he said.To add to PDP’s discomfort, party MP and senior leader Muzaffar Hussain Baig felt the coalition government has not made a promising beginning with controversy erupting due to statements on both sides.He said that he would have preferred a clear cut statement on part of the two parties in their Common Minimum Programme (CMP) about talks with Pakistan and Hurriyat and revocation of Armed Forces Special Powers Act.””Let people decide whether the clauses in CMP on these issues are clear cut or whether they are capable of two different meanings, one that suits BJP and another that suits PDP. I would have preferred a clearcut statement and more clarity on these issues,” he told PTI here.Baig said that coalition government should be based on a “good faith agreement and not on compromise”.Ram Madhav, who was BJP’s key negotiator for the alliance with PDP, also disagreed with Sayeed’s comments “we attribute it (smooth polls) to three factors, the people of state, security agencies and the election commission.”Former Chief Minister and Working President of National Conference Omar Abdullah wondered whether Sayeed and his daughter were trying to break the alliance with their remarks on credit to Pakistan.”Has Mufti decided the Modi-Mufti accord was a mistake? Are the Father-Daughter duo trying to force BJP to break off the alliance? #wondering,” Omar wrote on micro-blogging site Twitter.
This is a highly interdisciplinary project that brings together cognitive computing, spatial user interfaces and manufacturing to meet real-world challenges in medical training. To medical science, this project will lead to a holistic and objective approach to educate, train and evaluate medical students.”Dr. Vinayak Krishnamurthy, mechanical engineering associate professor, Texas A&M University Related StoriesTransobturator sling surgery shows promise for stress urinary incontinenceTen-fold rise in tongue-tie surgery for newborns ‘without any real strong data’Experts explain what happens after hip fracture in older adultsPhysically, trainees will get firsthand experience drilling into and operating on 3D printed anatomical replicas made of a bone-mimicking composite previously developed by Tai that consists of a special printable plaster and binder jetting technology. This method enables different grades of hardness and toughness to be produced in a way that resembles human bones at different ages and conditions. Along with being inexpensive, 3D printing also allows students to print and interact with simulated rare diseases – giving them a hands-on experience with disorders that may not be present in available cadavers.Virtually, data captured by embedded sensors will be used to analyze and assess the student’s performance as they conduct the simulated surgery. These sensors will record two key performance measures regarding drilling and screw placement: force and motion. As such, it will provide students and instructors alike an objective, real-time set of data from the simulator. That information can then be cross-referenced by a large dataset complied from experienced surgeons in order to objectively determine how well the operation was done.”The outcomes of this project have the potential to lead to new intellectual insights,” said Krishnamurthy. “We could discover more about how humans process sensory information and apply it during high-pressure and risky tasks. Or gain insight about how to design new types of human-computer and human-machine interactions and interfaces to enable, expand and enhance human performance in such tasks. Finally, the project will also be able to shed light on fundamental techniques for manufacturing multiscale materials with a wide variety of physical properties to emulate biological objects.” Source:Texas A&M University Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Jul 9 2019When someone breaks or fractures a bone, orthopedic surgeons can set and stabilize it by drilling and placing medical screws into the damaged area. This technique of fracture fixation enables fast healing and a quick recovery of functionality of the injured bone.With extensive expertise needed, surgeons-in-training undergo residencies to hone their skills and bridge the gap between education and application under the mentorship of practicing doctors in a real-world setting.Currently, this training consists of using either cadavers and simulant materials, such as wood or plastic, or virtual reality-based simulators to practice drilling and placing screws into a bone. However, as Dr. Bruce Tai explained, these methods do not imitate an actual, living patient very well nor do they provide realistic responses, and virtual reality systems are generally very expensive.”Additionally, in both cases, the assessment and feedback given to trainees is totally subjective,” said Tai, assistant professor and Mechanical Engineering Industry Advisory Council Faculty Fellow in the J. Mike Walker ’66 Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University. “I used to work with neurosurgeons to develop 3D-printed simulators and always felt that the assessment part was difficult (regardless of how good of a simulator they had), due to the lack of objective data.”Merging engineering and medicine, a team of researchers were awarded the Simulation Research Grant from the Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation (funded by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons). They are working to enhance the training of orthopedic residents through a 3D printed simulator and visualized performance data.The team’s project aims to improve these training modules for future surgeons by combining the advantages of hands-on physical and objective, data-driven virtual simulations.

state politics Published on COMMENT Telangana COMMENTS M SomasekharIn a big jolt, the Congress in Telangana suffered a vertical split, losing its main Opposition status in the Legislative Assembly and has been reduced to single digit for the first time.In dramatic developments, 12 of its total 19 MLAs submitted a signed letter to the Speaker, Pocharam Srinivas, urging him to merge the block into the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS). With this, the Congress’ strength fell to six in the 119-member Legislative.The Telangana Assembly Secretary issued a formal bulletin recognising the merger of the 12 Congress legislators into the TRS. Consequently, the Cong number has plummeted below the AIMIM’s strength — seven.Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee President Uttam Kumar Reddy had submitted his resignation to the Huzurnagar Assembly seat on Wednesday, after he won the Lok Sabha election to the Nalgonda constituency.At the same time, the Telugu Desam Party (TDP), which won three seats, has also lost two of its MLAs, who have defected to the TRS. With this, the strength of the ruling party, led by K Chandrasekhar Rao, which had won a landslide victory in the December 2018 election bagging 88 seats, increases to 103. The AIMIM won seven, Congress six, the BJP and the TDP one each.Reacting to the major setback, Uttam Kumar Reddy found fault with the Speaker for first finding time to ‘secretly’ meet the defecting MLAs and then accepting the merger even while a petition was pending in the State High Court. “He did not take my call nor did he follow the procedures”, he argued.Earlier, the attempt by leaders of the Congress to protest was foiled by the police. Uttam Kumar Reddy said “We will fight judicially” and questioned the Speaker’s decision.The background storyThe troubles of the Congress began immediately after the poll drubbing at the hands of the TRS, despite fighting under the Praja Front alliance with the TDP, the TJS & the CPI. While a few of its victorious MLAs started defecting, many others were being weaned away. Uttam Kumar alleged that Chief Minister KCR was himself openly luring his partymen Even before the Lok Sabha elections on April 11, the party had at least 10 of its MLAs in the rival camp. While the leadership was nursing hopes of a reversal after winning four 4 Lok Sabha seats, the fast moves by the defectors and their acceptance into the TRS fold has come as a shock.In August 2013, reports were rife that in Telangana, the TRS was heading to a vertical split with nine of its 17 MLAs reportedly in talks with the Congress leadership, including Digvijay Singh, to defect. It gained credence as the Congress Working Committee had announced its decision to grant a separate Statehood for Telangana.The Congress was argued that it was engineering the defections as KCR, who was leading the agitation for Telangana from 2001 with his TRS, had promised to merge the party once the it announced Statehood.When the elections were held in 2014, the TRS and KCR came to power, while the Congress faced a rout. In 2019, KCR has gone one up by successfully splitting the Cong(I) and reducing it to a pathetic state in Telangana.As things stand with 103 seats and the alliance partner MIM as opposition and the BJP, TDP with one each and a by election, KCR and the TRS emerge with a virtual non-existent opposition, in India’s newest State.
