Power numbers for the new car were not released but we expect an increase over the standard 532 and 602 horsepower, respectively. The dry-sump pump module can withstand 1.5 lateral G of acceleration, and the oiling system has its own separate radiator to keep things cool.Audi has improved many areas of the R8, especially braking. It now stops 1.5 metres shorter than before, thanks to the tuning of the ESC and available carbon-ceramic disc brakes. Wrapped around those brakes are standard 19-inch wheels, with the option to upgrade to 20-inch fully-milled ultralight wheels.The handling is said to have improved with optional dynamic steering; standard is electro-mechanical power steering, which has also been tuned for better road feel. The front stabilizer bar can be had in carbon-fibre-reinforced polymer and aluminum, which sheds 4.4 pounds and adds more precision and stability to the handling.There are now three drive modes available to make Audi’s “everyday supercar” more usable: dry, wet and snow.

Raze Or Rebuild Bel-Aire Cove?

first_imgA debate over competing solutions for the Bel-Aire Cove Motel in Hampton Bays has ended with the Southampton Town Board agreeing to hold a public hearing next month to weigh the property’s fate.After several public comments and an hourlong debate between board members, a unanimous vote was cast in favor of Councilwoman Christina Preston Scalera’s resolution to hold a January 8 hearing to determine whether the Shinnecock Road property should be purchased with money from the Community Preservation Fund.“I feel that this parcel is appropriate for CPF purchase irrespective of the issues that we’re talking about relative to its use as a hotel,” Preston Scalera said at the board’s December 11 meeting. “Ideally, I would have loved to see it flourish as a hotel, or have confidence that it will do so in the future, notwithstanding this speculative nature of using other people’s money to fund hopes. I think it’s problematic that we have a fundamental lack of confidence that this board will enforce its codes. And I think it is well-founded, which is even more troubling to me.”The Bel-Aire Cove Motel has been the source of many complaints and was cited with code violations for overcrowding, bedbugs, and missing smoke detectors during an October 2017 raid. In an attempt to clean up the property, Supervisor Jay Schneiderman proposed what board members are touting as an “out-of-the-box” plan in August to purchase the property for $1.06 million and prepare it for development as luxury town houses or a 22-room boutique hotel.“I’ve been working for three years on this property trying to come up with a community-based solution that would get it to be a positive part of the local economy in Hampton Bays — to clean up the issues around the septic system, to have it be something that would pay a higher tax to the school district than it’s currently paying, and to have it be a hotel once again,” Schneiderman said. “We talked about revitalizing the Hampton Bays community and stimulating the economy. I feel I haven’t made my case strong enough, so this will buy me some time. I’ve got work to do.”Board members on both sides raised concerns that the property might remain a problem for the Southampton board into the future. Preston Scalera said she was afraid the town might find itself back in the same situation if the motel is rebuilt, and Hampton Bays resident Ray D’Angelo echoed her fear, urging the town purchase the property through the CPF, raze it, and preserve it. He was joined by other community members who wished to see the same thing.“My two main concerns are the residents that live there now get safely relocated, which I hope the town would help do, and that this place will be done with,” D’Angelo said. “We would really like to see this thing put to bed — have a stake go through its heart and not see it come back to life.”Councilman John Bouvier had a converse concern.“We’ve acquired a lot of CPF properties that have languished,” he said. “It’s in the heart of Hampton Bays; it’s on the water. If you acquire it with CPF funds and you leave it, then there’s a burden on the town to maintain the property because people see it all the time driving through. It has to be protected. And it could become another blight.”Councilman Tommy John Schiavoni joined his three board members who were opposed to the use of CPF money to buy the property, citing concerns it would set a precedent. Preston Scalera countered that she was just as worried about the town getting into the real estate business.“This property has been a part of Hampton Bays for 60 years,” Schiavoni said. “I am mindful of the tax base in Hampton Bays. Economic development has been one of this board’s goals. Good Ground Park was built; Edward J. Warner Sr. Old Ponquogue Bridge Marine Park and fishing pier, Ponquogue Pavilion, Hot Dog Beach, the Tiana Life-Saving Station, to name a few, are some of the development projects we have, and it would be nice to have people come to Hampton Bays as a summer resort to visit those amenities and go to the restaurants in town and contribute to the economy.”While Schneiderman, Bouvier, Schiavoni, and Councilwoman Julie Lofstad all said they were ready to vote “yes” on the resolution to purchase the property, and felt they had been “maneuvered” to vote in favor of the public hearing, ultimately, they said they would not go against letting the public speak at a formal hearing.“I’m always willing to listen,” Lofstad said. “And especially if time is not of the essence.”Because her fellow board members have already seemed to have made up their minds on the matter, Preston Scalera pleaded with them to do their due diligence in weighing public positions from next month’s hearing. “Go into the public hearing with an open mind,” Preston Scalera said. “I think the public deserves that.”[email protected] Sharelast_img read more

Collaborative Robotics: Machines that Work Alongside Humans

first_imgRobotic manufacturers are building a new generation of industrial robots, robots that are more capable of working side by side with humans.  These new robots are called ‘cobots‘ or collaborative robots.  Cobots are designed to work at a slower speed and of lower force than their human partners.  They’re typically safer, easier-to-use and more flexible than the previous generation of robots.  A key advantage of cobots is that they’re able to work in environments where robots did not do well previously, and the teaming of robots with humans is allowing some tasks to be automated that never have been automated before.Olaf Kramm, general manager at Fanuc Germany, said that “collaboration is already a revolution.  The fencing we had around robots was a show-stopper. But that was for safety reasons; now we’re talking about industry 4.0 — a smart factory with no borders, where robots and humans work alongside another.”Jim Lawton, Rethink Robotics chief marketing officer, said that “environments need to be built so the robot and the worker can be in the same space safely”.Safety has been an issue that has needed to be solved in order to realize collaborative robotics.  Four possible measures that are considered in the design of robots that will work alongside of humans include:Stopped state monitoring – the robot stops working when a human comes in range and will not restart until the human leavesSpeed and separation monitoring – the robot’s speed of work slows significantly as a human approaches and may stop if a human gets too closeHand guiding – the robot slows when a human is present and training the robot by handPower and force limiting – the robot is run with low power and force so that there is little chance to inflict injuryGregg Panek, owner of Panek Precision, said that “having the robots has allowed us to move our existing workers into more useful tasks.”last_img read more

A Cross-Section of the Y Combinator Process

first_imgY Combinator founder and master essayist Paul Graham is an indispensable source of wisdom for startups whether they read his advice online or soak it in first-hand by attending YC. Recently, however, Graham felt that many misunderstood what exactly goes on at the unique entrepreneurial breeding ground, so he “wrote something explaining that in detail,” as he puts it. And by “in detail,” he means, “in the form of a massive, 8,000-word dissertation.” Here are some of the highlights from what he had to say about Y Combinator.One of the more interesting areas Graham covers in his essay has to do with the series of dinners which take place over the course of Y Combinator. At these meetings, startups are able to mingle with industry luminaries and founders of successful companies in a relaxed, off-the-record atmosphere.“Eventually we may hit some kind of limit on the number of people we can advise, but we haven’t hit it yet.”– Paul Graham“I didn’t consciously realize how much speakers at more public events censored themselves till I was able to compare the same people speaking off the record at YC dinners and on the record at Startup School,” writes Graham. “YC dinner talks are much more useful, because the details people omit in more public talks tend to be the most interesting parts of their stories. About half the interesting things I know about famous startups, I learned at YC dinners.A longer and equally interesting section (chapter?) of the essay detailed how YC deals with office hours. Throughout the year, it’s not just the companies in the current class that meet with the incubator’s advisors. With the exception of four weeks of the year, any YC member can schedule office hours at any point.“Eventually we may hit some kind of limit on the number of people we can advise, but we haven’t hit it yet,” writes Graham. “And untaken office hour slots show us that, as of now at least, we’re never so overloaded that we can’t satisfy the startups in the current batch.”Graham continues to outline what happens at Angel Day, Demo Day and other events, as well as the relationships with alumni, foundations and other groups. It’s interesting to see the ins and outs of such a successful startup accelerator program. If you’re considering applying to YC, reading Graham’s essay is a good place to start to get a feel for the program.

The two were battling over a frequency which Islandcom claimed it had exclusive right to… and one which the telecoms company said Fortis infiltrated, costing them an undisclosed bundle of the money in order to remain operating in the TCI. Fortis won the first case; Islandcom appealed at the Privy Council and again Fortis has won seemingly on the basis that the frequency was not proven to be exclusive to Islandcom. In a statement yesterday, Fortis said: “it is pleased to announce that the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council, in the matter of FortisTCI Limited vs. Islandcom Telecommunications Limited, has ruled in favour of the Company on all three grounds of appeal.” FortisTCI President and Chief Executive Officer Eddinton Powell said, “We are happy to have this matter behind us.”last_img read more
