NMED News: To use the secure file transfer service, applicants should use the new UA1 form available on the Air Quality Bureau website at https://www.env.nm.gov/air-quality/universal-application-2/. The form instructions allow users to designate that they want to use the file transfer service and provide the information for their contact who will transfer the files. Due to short regulatory deadlines, this option cannot be used for permits that must be issued within 30 days, such as any type of General Construction Permit (GCP), Notices of Intent (NOI), or technical revisions to any permit. After receipt of the paper application, the AQB will contact the applicant with an email invitation to set up the file transfer. The transfer service does not require applicants to set up accounts or use passwords in response to the request from AQB. The transfer request can also be forwarded from the recipient to another representative representing the company, such as a consultant. This option is available for permits with longer timelines, such as Title V permits, new NSR permits, and modifications to those permits. The AQB requires paper applications to include a CD or DVD with electronic copies of the application and supporting documents such as calculation spreadsheets. For some types of permits, the AQB will now allow applicants to submit paper applications and use our secure file transfer service to submit their electronic files instead of burning files to a CD. AQB is providing this alternative submission method as an option for applicants; paper applications can always be accompanied by CDs or DVDs. Direct questions about the secure file transfer process or to Kirby.email@example.com or 505.476.4322.

Service King Collision Repair Centers has announced the launch of an aggressive long-term veterans hiring initiative under the title, “Mission 2 Hire.”AdvertisementClick Here to Read MoreAdvertisementThe Mission 2 Hire initiative is a pledge by Service King officials to hire at least 500 U.S. Armed Forces veterans, their spouses or active duty personnel within the next five years. The figure equates to about 10 percent of Service King’s current staff across its network of more than 235 collision repair facilities in 21 states.“By nature, military personnel posses some of the most valuable skill sets that we look for in our hiring process,” said Service King CEO Chris Abraham. “U.S. Armed Forces veterans and their family members have bravely served our country and fought for our freedom. Now, it’s our turn to serve them as they make the difficult transition to civilian life. We’re honored and deeply humbled to provide rewarding career opportunities at Service King for these heroes through our Mission 2 Hire initiative.”As part of the Mission 2 Hire initiative, Service King is partnering with USAA and Hiring Our Heroes as well as other veteran assistance programs across the country to promote career opportunities for military veterans in the industry. Service King’s initiative launched as an extension of private equity investor Blackstone and its sweeping Veterans Initiative, which aims to hire a total of 50,000 veterans across its portfolio.Advertisement“Service King’s Mission 2 Hire initiative is a strong step forward in promoting valuable career opportunities for our military veterans and their spouses,” said Sandy Ogg, operating partner, Blackstone. “Service King offers a wealth of career paths in the automotive repair industry that coincide with the very skill sets that so many veterans already possess. This long-term commitment, in conjunction with Blackstone’s very own Veterans Initiative, is poised to make a difference in the lives of thousands of our military heroes.”In addition to its hiring commitment, Service King has launched a new website, www.Mission2Hire.careers, specifically tailored to military veterans and their families. The site aims to serve as a portal of information about Service King while operating as an intuitive platform to match existing skill sets with complementing careers in the collision repair industry.Service King will also celebrate current military veterans and their families on the official company blog, The Service Advisor, and across its social media channels throughout the month of May.
East Hampton Town Supervisor Peter Van Scoyoc spoke at a press conference announcing the beginning of a major public works project that will bring public water mains to Wainscott. Independent/Stephen J. KotzMore than a dozen elected officials and representatives of Suffolk County and the Suffolk County Water Authority gathered at the corner of Two Rod Highway and Windsor Lane in Wainscott Monday morning, August 20, to celebrate the beginning of a project to lay 45,000 feet — about eight-and-a-half miles — of new water mains in the hamlet.The $24 million project will allow residents whose private wells are in an area polluted by perfluorinated chemicals to hook up to public water.East Hampton Town has bonded the $24 million for the project, with half slated to be paid for residents who live in a newly created Wainscott water district, and the other half by town taxpayers. The town and the water authority have applied for funding under New York State’s $2.5 billion Clean Water Infrastructure Act. If approved, the funds would be used to offset a portion of the cost.New York State Assemblyman Fred Thiele and Senator Kenneth LaValle have sponsored legislation that would allow East Hampton to use money from its Community Preservation Fund to help cover the cost of the project.“This is a very important day for the residents of Wainscott,” said Supervisor Peter Van Scoyoc. “It is the fruition of many months of work.”The water authority’s chairman, James Gaughran, said the authority often gets requests from municipalities to bring in public water, “but never to this scale.”Thiele said it was a great example of different branches of government working together to swiftly solve a problem and pointed out that Wainscott is one of only five areas on the South Fork with contaminated drinking water. “As a mom, I can say I can’t imagine anything quite as frightening as wondering whether the water that is coming out of your tap, and you are taking care of your family with, is safe to drink,” said County Legislator Bridget Fleming, who encouraged all Wainscott residents who are given the option to hook up to public firstname.lastname@example.org Share
U.S. Sen. Susan Collins and U.S. Rep. Michael Michaud welcomed top officials from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to Castine on Sept. 5 to celebrate a successful year of the VolturnUS floating wind turbine deployed off Castine. The federal officials were joined by representatives from the University of Maine, Maine Maritime Academy and Cianbro, who discussed highlights of the yearlong deployment off the coast of Castine. VolturnUS, a one-eighth scale model of a 6 MW floating wind turbine with more than 50 sensors on board, has been successfully operating and collecting data related to design capabilities for more than a year, including throughout the Maine winter.As part of the event, DOE Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy David Danielson signed a $3.8 million cooperative research agreement with UMaine to continue the design and engineering work of the full-scale VolturnUS floating hull.“We appreciate the continued support of the Department of Energy in the University of Maine’s ongoing efforts in deepwater offshore wind technology research and development,” said UMaine President Susan Hunter. “It’s through partnerships like this in the federal, state, education and industry sectors that the University of Maine most efficiently and effectively addresses the needs of the state.” [mappress mapid=”14058″]Source: UMaine, September 09, 2014; Image: Advanced Structures and Composites Center, University of Maine

EXFO and Rohde & Schwarz have partnered together to provide test and measurement (T&M) solutions for on-site commissioning, maintenance and troubleshooting of mobile communications systems. EXFO and Rohde & Schwarz – each an expert in their own field – offer complementary solutions that combine optical and wireless technologies to significantly speed up and efficiently locate and eliminate RF interference.In modern mobile network stations, RF equipment continues to shift closer to the antenna. They are usually mounted just below the antenna in order to minimize cable loss. The interconnection between the RF equipment at the top of the tower and the baseband unit is bridged via fiber optic cabling. This has increased the necessity for both fiber-to-the-antenna and over-the-air RF T&M technology.The wireless spectrum is growing in complexity and becoming increasingly susceptible to interference, which is critical to quality of service. If a service disruption occurs within a base station’s coverage area, the RF technician must quickly identify and correct the issue so that it doesn’t impact subscriber quality of experience.The combined solution from EXFO and Rohde & Schwarz provides best-in-class performance, empowering technicians to quickly and accurately troubleshoot RF interference issues and allowing mobile network operators to minimize OPEX. EXFO’s OpticalRF over CPRI/OBSAI application, supported on the compact FTB-1 Pro test platform, can be connected at the baseband unit and remotely accessed via a mobile device to provide real-time RF spectrum views and to quickly detect RF signal interference. The R&S PR100 portable radio receiver, the R&S FPH or the R&S FSH spectrum analyzers from Rohde & Schwarz can be used to easily hunt and locate the interference in the field by providing a broad view of the spectrum, not only in the station’s operating band but also in the adjacent channels. Once the potential source has been found, RF interference mitigation techniques can be used and simultaneously validated on a mobile device to determine whether the issue has been resolved.EXFO and Rohde & Schwarz are global network test and measurement leaders in their respective fields. EXFO develops intelligent, automated network test, data and analytics solutions and Rohde & Schwarz develops wireless T&M technology. By leveraging the expertise of both companies, mobile network operators, installers and network service providers have access to harmonized solutions for a variety of measurement scenarios. As part of the cooperative effort, EXFO and Rohde & Schwarz have hosted several mobile network testing workshops and are planning other similar events in the future.The RF test and measurement solutions from both EXFO and Rohde and Schwarz will be demonstrated at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona from February 27 to March 2.
Earlier last year, someone in the UK purchased a very rare Petronas FP1 superbike for a whopping £31,275, which was around RM167,000 at the time. Now, it seems that someone here in Malaysia is planning to let go of one and the bike is currently being put up for sale at one of Malaysia’s leading classified-ads website, Mudah.my.In the description, the buyer is asking for a cool RM166,000 for this rare and beautiful superbike but he/she is apparently open for negotiations. Fitted with the very rare Sauber Racing 899cc three-cylinder engine, the Petronas FP1 produces 127hp at 10,000rpm and 92Nm of torque at 9,700rpm.Apparently, this particular machine is a road-legal model and comes with all the necessary on-road registration and documents. Other details include the year of manufacture (2002), delivery mileage only (we’re guessing it’s either never ridden or very rarely) and finished in Ganache Green.The next question that comes to mind is, is it legit? We have so many questions going through our heads and one can’t really stray away from this being a possible scam (because Mudah.my and other similar websites do have the tendency to have active scammers preying on unsuspecting victims). Its enquiry email is especially suspicious which is email@example.com. If it is indeed legit and you have the money, owning your very own Petronas FP1 superbike would be a dream come true for many folks around the globe. If interested, you check out the link by clicking HERE but be wary of scams and cheats. Be smart and ask around before forking out that much cash. You can basically get a 2020 BMW S 1000 RR M Sport package + fuel money for years with that asking price.Image source: Mudah.myFoggy-Petronas FP1 – Malaysia’s Own Superbike–Ads–
Related Topics On this Rivalry Saturday, there are several scenarios that can play out and drastically change the College Football Playoff picture.For starters, let’s look at “The Game.”If Ohio State wins, they will most likely make the playoff, but not the Big Ten Championship.If Ohio State wins and Penn State loses, they will reach the Big Ten Championship Game, and more than likely would face Wisconsin.If Michigan wins, they clinch the Big Ten East and go to the conference title game, eliminating Penn State from playoff contention.For argument’s sake, let’s say Ohio State and Penn State both win and the Nittany Lions advance to play Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship.There is a decent chance that both Ohio State and the winner of the Big Ten Title would both get into the playoff.If Wisconsin loses to Minnesota, that possibility becomes less likely, but Penn State could still have an argument to make the playoff if they win the conference title.Confusing enough for ya?Let’s move on to the SEC.It’s pretty simple. Bama is in.Back to the complicated math.The ACC, Big 12, and PAC-12 are all fighting for either one or two spots, depending on how the Big Ten plays out.We’ll start with the ACC.Clemson is in the driver’s seat and it is tough to envision any way they are left out of the playoff, unless they lose either this week against their rival South Carolina or they lose in the ACC championship.If Clemson loses either of the next two games, it’s unlikely any ACC team makes the playoff.Moving to the Big 12.Oklahoma and Oklahoma State will play next Saturday to determine who wins the Big 12.If Oklahoma wins, they have a strong case (even with two losses to Houston and Ohio State) to be worthy of making the playoff. Oklahoma would have gone 9-0 in conference play and it would be their ninth-straight win.If Oklahoma State wins, although they would only have two losses, their early season losses to Central Michigan and Baylor don’t quite stack up compared to a team like Wisconsin (whose only losses thus far came to Michigan and Ohio State).PAC-12Here’s where I could see some very frustrated fans if Washington wins the conference championship game.Washington has only one loss on their resume, which came against a solid USC team.If Colorado defeats Utah on Saturday night, the Buffaloes will play Washington next week in the conference title game.If Colorado loses and USC defeats Notre Dame, the Trojans win the PAC-12 South and face the Huskies for the conference title.Regardless of who plays Washington next week, if the Huskies lose, they are out of the playoff picture and it would be tough to argue for either USC (three losses) or Colorado (two losses) to get in with a relatively light schedule compared to teams like Penn State, Wisconsin and Oklahoma.For argument’s sake, let’s say Washington wins the PAC-12 Title and finishes their pre-playoff season with 12 wins and 1 loss.PLAYOFF PICTURE1 Alabama2 Michigan or OSU3 Clemson4 Washington/Oklahoma/Penn State/WisconsinMichigan can make the selection process much easier by winning the Big Ten and eliminating the possibility of two teams making it from the conference.PREDICTIONMy prediction is that Bama, Ohio State, Clemson, and Washington will make the playoff.However, this season has been crazy from Week 1 all the way up until Week 13 and there will probably be another twist or two thrown into the mix before this is all said and done.
