NASA/JPL-CaltechPasadena’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which sent spacecraft Dawn to study Ceres in 2007, is set to reposition the probe to get different angles of the mysterious dwarf planet that lies in the asteroid belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.After eight months of observing Ceres from a low altitude and obtaining its cache of images and data, scientists decided to examine the planet from higher up, a feat that can be accomplished due to Dawn’s unique properties.“Most spacecraft wouldn’t be able to change their orbital altitude so easily. But thanks to Dawn’s uniquely capable ion propulsion system, we can maneuver the ship to get the greatest scientific return from the mission,” said Marc Rayman, chief engineer and mission director, in a statement released to the media by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.According to the statement, Dawn will begin spiraling upward until its about 910 miles from Ceres so it can get a different view of its surface. A key reason for this switch is Dawn’s lifetime, which is linked with hydrazine, a chemical propellant needed both to orient the spacecraft and communicate with Earth. By going higher, Dawn will use its remaining hydrazine in a more efficient matter, prolonging its lifespan, because it won’t have to work as hard to counteract Ceres’ gravitational tug.Ceres, one of many minor planets in our solar system, has a barren asteroid-like surface, an icy mantle and orbits the sun once every 4.6 Earth years. It was first discovered in 1772 by Johann Elert Bode, who suggested that an unknown planet may lie between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.For a more information, visit http://dawn.jpl.nasa.gov/missionMore information about Dawn is available at http://dawn.jpl.nasa.gov Science and Technology JPL Scientists Use Dawn Spacecraft’s Ion Propulsion to Lift Into Higher Orbit Around Ceres From NASA/JPL-Caltech Published on Thursday, September 1, 2016 | 5:36 pm Your email address will not be published.

José Mourinho’s handling of Luke Shaw is a head-scratcher even for seasoned watchers of the Manchester United manager.Shaw should not be immune from criticism, as no footballer is. The point is that Mourinho, as a manager trying to get the best from players for the benefit of the side, can be over the top and counterproductive with his public assessments of the 22-year-old. Share on WhatsApp Sportblog Share on Twitter José Mourinho Share on LinkedIn Read more Luke Shaw unhappy at Mourinho criticism but will not be forced out Manchester United Reuse this content Share on Facebook Share on Pinterest Topics Share on Messenger Share via Email The number of times the manager has done this also prompts the question: what, precisely, is being seen in training that causes Mourinho to keep on selecting Shaw?The manager had all week to assess the left-back, then on Saturday decided 45 minutes into the FA Cup quarter-final win against Brighton & Hove Albion that Shaw should never have been in the XI. Factor in the history of a near two years as his coach that has featured serial mistrust and Mourinho was surely not surprised at how Shaw, in his view, performed.The public criticism that followed was the latest the defender has had to wear. It moved Shaw from a confused state regarding how he is rated – after previous admonishments – to just plain unhappy.Who can blame him? Last month Mourinho said Shaw would receive a new contract “as a natural consequence” of a “big effort”. This followed a declaration in January that he was among the finest left-backs in domestic football. It all seemed to signal Shaw had responded to the nadir of last April, when Mourinho humiliated him by stating Shaw needed to “grow up” and that the manager was his “brain” in a game at Everton.Yet the high praise in January was followed by Shaw being dropped for a league win at Burnley – he has started only four matches since – and the offer of a new contract is surely in the balance after Mourinho’s weekend words.Shaw is in no hurry to leave, though. The main calculation here is that he is out of contract in 2019, so would have greater choice of destinations plus the attraction of a lucrative signing-on fee as a free agent.Against Brighton, Shaw did not seem particularly deserving of the hook. He was also hardly the prime candidate to lose his place at Turf Moor. It has become the unfortunate trope of his career under Mourinho. If there is a player to admonish, it tends to be Shaw.On Friday Mourinho opened up a new front in criticism by extending it to all of his squad, bar Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic, which he continued post-Brighton. Shaw could be forgiven for hearing this and thinking of team-mates: “Welcome to my world”, while wondering where Mourinho’s disquiet with the very people his own livelihood depends on – his players – will end.This may be a further calculation in Shaw’s determination not to be forced out. Given Mourinho’s history and current behaviour there is no guarantee he will be his manager for all of next season and so any replacement may take a near-polar opposite view of Shaw’s worth. comment

Andrew Holness, has expressed confidence that the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), under the leadership of new President, Hon. Mr. Justice Adrian Saunders, will continue to guard the rights of the Caribbean people. Story Highlights Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, has expressed confidence that the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), under the leadership of new President, Hon. Mr. Justice Adrian Saunders, will continue to guard the rights of the Caribbean people.Mr. Holness was speaking at the swearing-in ceremony for Justice Saunders at the Hyatt Ziva Hotel, Montego Bay, on July 4.“I am fully confident that based on your commendable professional experience and personal attributes, you will discharge your functions in this new role with distinction and integrity,” the Prime Minister said.Mr. Holness said the day’s proceedings ought not to be seen as a mere formality that is driven by practice and devoid of deeper meaning, but should act as the channel through which member states can pursue and facilitate a united approach to prosperity and development.The Prime Minister congratulated Mr. Saunders on his appointment and commended him for his distinguished service over the years.For his part, Secretary General of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), Ambassador Irwin LaRocque, said the appointment “represents a milestone in our judicial history” and sends a positive message to all about “the standards of our legal-education institutions”.“The CCJ represents the essence of our independence and sovereignty. It is essential to the progress of the integration movement through the certainty and predictability it provides in the interpretation and application of the revised Treaty [of Chaguaramas]. This court has proven its worth, and I look forward to the day when all our members sign on to the appellate jurisdiction,” he said.In his response, President Saunders said that as he takes on the responsibility for the CCJ, he considers himself to be very fortunate.“I have been preceded in that office by two outstanding Caribbean jurists, and I was privileged to have enjoyed a close collegial relationship with them, Justice Michael de la Bastide and Sir Dennis Byron. Both have contributed to the solid platform on which the Court now rests. I express my profound gratitude to them for their profound service, and in particular to Sir Dennis for his mentorship over several years,” he said.The new president was sworn in by Governor-General, His Excellency the Most Hon. Sir Patrick Allen.Mr. Justice Saunders is also Chairman of the Caribbean Association of Judicial Officers (CAJO).He obtained a Bachelor of Laws degree from the University of the West Indies (Cave Hill) in 1975 and the Legal Education Certificate at the Hugh Wooding Law School in Trinidad and Tobago in 1977. He was called to the Bar of St. Vincent and the Grenadines in that same year. He worked with Sir Dennis at the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court and was later reunited with him in 2011 when Sir Dennis was appointed President of the CCJ.Also in attendance at the ceremony were outgoing President of the CCJ, Sir Dennis Byron; Lead Head of Government for Justice and Governance, CARICOM, Prime Minister of Belize, Hon. Dean Barrow; Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Hon. Ralph Gonsalves, and other officials from regional governments.The ceremony was held prior to the start of the 39th regular meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government of CARICOM, which will last until July 6. “I am fully confident that based on your commendable professional experience and personal attributes, you will discharge your functions in this new role with distinction and integrity,” the Prime Minister said.
Gurugram: To decongest Old Gurugram, a challenge that has been plaguing commuters for long, The Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) has floated tenders to finalise concessionaires for installing and operating automated parking systems at the proposed mixed-use, multi-level parking facilities in Sadar Bazar and Kaman Sarai.On average, 28,000 cars are registered and added to Gurgaon roads per annum. The number of two-wheelers stands at 22,000, an MCG official said. Additionally, according to the NHAI, city’s arterial road, the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway is accessed by 4.5 lakh vehicles every day. However, the city currently has only one multi-level parking facility near the HUDA City Centre, which was opened in May.

MCG is looking for concessionaires who have experience in making, installing and operating stack parking facility, said an MCG official privy to the development. Stack parking is essentially a mechanical technique used for parking vehicles one above the other using hydraulic platforms to ensure maximum utilisation of space Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsAs per the tender documents, a copy of which is with Hindustan Times, the Kaman Sarai multi-level stack parking will cost Rs 22.32 crore, while the Sadar Bazar facility will cost Rs 10.93 crore. Each of these facilities must be built in 27 months. The estimated cost for constructing the buildings, barring the parking system, is Rs78.26 crore for Kaman Sarai and Rs 33.56 crore for Sadar Bazar MCG officials had floated e-tenders on June 15 for finalising contractors who could construct the multi-level parking facilities for each of the two locations. On July 4, the process ended and concessionaires for each of the facility were subsequently finalised. In the past, MCG has come up with schemes of free parking inside the basement of the malls to using vacant areas as parking spots. Yet, the schemes have not proved to be successful in resolving the parking woes.
