APD Recognizes Outstanding Service to Apopka

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Chief Michael McKinley and Rookie of the Year Officer John GiarratanaOn June 6th, 2015, Sergeant Brett Webster responded to a report of a suspicious person. Webster arrived to find a subject in front of a building. He lost sight of him when the subject walked behind a parked van. Webster attempted to make contact with the subject, but found he had armed himself with a large Samurai sword. The subject demanded to speak with the chief of police and approached Webster. Webster immediately created distance with the subject, drew his weapon and ordered the subject to drop his weapon. After repeated orders, the subject dropped the sword and surrendered. * * * In 2015, 129 police officers died in the line of duty.  Their average age was 40 years old. The Apopka Police Department (APD) suffered no fatalities in 2015, but this harsh reality stares every officer in the face every day that they are on the job.On Friday evening, the APD came together to honor those who provided outstanding service to our community at the 2015 APD Annual Awards Program. The event was held at the Apopka Community Center on Central Avenue. 4-Rivers Barbecue catered the event.Pastor Freddie Filmore of Freedom Ministries gave the Invocation, The Apopka Police Honor Guard performed the Posting of the Colors and Sergeant Steve Harmon led the Pledge of Allegiance. Police Chief Michael McKinley  gave an introduction, and Mayor Joe Kilsheimer also offered opening remarks.* * *Officers Jason Wiggins and Jason BerryOn August 8th, 2015  Wiggins and  Berry responded to a call at a local bar in Apopka. A caller had advised that a woman was drinking in the establishment, while leaving her two toddlers unsupervised outside in a vehicle. Wiggins and Berry arrived and made contact with the mother. The woman denied the accusations and was obviously impaired. Wiggins and Berry conducted an investigation and determined that the allegations were in fact true and arrested her for Child Neglect. The father of the children was out of state, so Wiggins and Berry located local family members to take custody of the children to avoid them being further traumatized. It was discovered during the investigation that the mother had an interlock device on her vehicle due to her alcoholism and the children knew how to disable the device by blowing into it.*  *  * Chief McKinley and The APD handed out over 100 awards in over 20 categories. Here are the Employees of the Year, Medals and High Honors given out:Communications Technician of the Year – Haley LovellCivilian of the Year – Holly RoellRookie of the Year – Officer John GiarratanaOfficer of the Year – Officer Ashley SullivanSupervisor of the Year – Sergeant Ed ChittendenDistinguished Service – Sergeant Brett Webster and Detective Steve LandryLife Saving – Officer Barry Brown* * *Officer Amber LovelaceOn October 14th, 2015 Amber Lovelace responded to what was reported to be a pair of missing and endangered adults. The adults had both been diagnosed as being in the late stages of dementia. The pair had left that afternoon at around 2pm in an older model black and grey Chevrolet Caprice and had not been heard from since.  Lovelace conducted the initial investigation and issued a statewide Silver Alert. At about 8 pm, Lovelace was returning to her home after an extended shift due to this investigation. While in route to her home, she saw a vehicle matching the missing persons in the parking lot of the Market of Southside in Orlando. Lovelace confirmed that it was  the vehicle used by the missing couple. A short time later, the missing adults returned to the vehicle. They were  lost and disoriented, and were about to leave the area in a further attempt to return home.  Lovelace was able to summon medical attention for the pair and have them returned safely to their home.* * * Chief McKinley closed the ceremony by praising the entire Department;“What we heard tonight was just a small portion of what the men and women of the Apopka Police Department do every day.” You have entered an incorrect email address!

That is, the city planners and leaders tell the citizens how the city will be planned, when it really should be the other way around.”According to a written report, Mayor Terry Tornek agreed with that idea.“David was passionate about Pasadena and its roots in the City Beautiful Movement of nearly 100 years ago,” said Marsha Rood. “David wanted to bring Pasadena closer to those roots in planning for its future. Pasadena has lost a great champion.”The City Beautiful Movement was a reform philosophy of North American architecture and urban planning that flourished during the 1890s and 1900s. It was a part of the progressive social reform movement in North America under the leadership of the upper-middle class concerned with poor living conditions in all major cities.The movement, which was originally associated mainly with Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland and Washington DC, promoted beauty as a means to create moral and civic virtue among urban populations.Advocates of the philosophy believed that such beautification could increase the quality of life.“Much of Pasadena’s model city reputation can be found in the City Beautiful Movement and the work of George Damon, Dean of Engineering,” Wolf wrote in his book My City: The Model to Emulate. “In creating a more participatory process during the early visioning stages of planning, community aspirations were shared, finances were measured and an ambitious set of proposals were set in motion.” Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Herbeauty6 Fashion Trends You Should Never Try And 6 You’ll LoveHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Strong Female TV Characters Who Deserve To Have A SpinoffHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty9 Of The Best Family Friendly Dog BreedsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyFinding The Right Type Of Workout For You According AstrologyHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Trends To Look Like An Eye-Candy And 6 To Forget AboutHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThe Most Heartwarming Moments Between Father And DaughterHerbeautyHerbeauty Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Community News First Heatwave Expected Next Week Community News Top of the News Business News History Local Architect/Urbanist David Wolf is Dead at 54 STAFF REPORT Published on Monday, January 6, 2020 | 8:25 pm EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Your email address will not be published.

In situ measurements of Antarctic snow compaction compared with predictions of models

first_imgWe describe in situ measurements of the compaction of Antarctic snow. At three different sites in Antarctica, the rate of compaction was measured hourly, over various depth intervals, for up to two years. These measurements show that compaction at each of the sites occurs through slow, viscous deformation of the snowpack, with no significant contribution from sudden collapse of weak layers. The measured rates of compaction at the coldest site exhibit a strong seasonality, consistent with a temperature-dependent sintering mechanism having activation energy of 70 kJ mol(-1). At the two warmer sites, activation energies of 80 and 120 kJ mol(-1) provide slightly better agreement with the observations. Published models of snow compaction underestimate the temperature sensitivity. A good match to our observations is provided by a semi-empirical model, based on rate equations for lattice-diffusion (Nabarro-Herring) creep of material around pores, combined with normal grain growth. This model also provides a theoretical basis for a widely used empirical model of snow compaction. The rate coefficient for lattice-diffusion inferred from our measurements is considerably higher than published values, however, and other creep mechanisms cannot be ruled out.last_img read more

EMC World Sneak Preview: Eclipse Aerospace Saves its Intellectual Property with One Vblock

first_imgNext week at EMC World, I will present how Eclipse Aerospace was able to defeat legacy data center challenges and transform our data center into an agile, highly efficient virtualized environment.Our story started five years ago, when we purchased the assets of the bankrupt Eclipse Aviation, makers of the world’s first very light jet – the Eclipse 500. Eclipse Aerospace inherited an award-winning aircraft design, capable of flying six people 425 mph at 41,000 feet while consuming less fuel than two SUVs would for the same distance in a fraction of the time.As part of the migration team, my IT department was under a lot of pressure to seamlessly transition their technology and assets to Eclipse Aerospace. However, an entirely digital design and manufacturing operation carries a lot of weight in a data center.Eclipse Aviation’s designs and engineering diagrams cataloged tens of thousands of parts in numerous configurations stored in volumes of six to ten terabytes.  These assets, along with the company’s business and operational applications and information, were running in three computer rooms, using more than 200 servers.But big data migration was just one part of the problem. IT infrastructure had been neglected for several years during the shutdown. Not only was the IT infrastructure built for a staff six times the size of our department, but their software and hardware were generations behind and cooling failures had damaged parts of the data center. Years of advanced intellectual property were at risk in the deteriorating IT infrastructure.With the amount of data and limited time frame, I knew we had to virtualize our data center. Cloning or moving the large data sets to traditional “pizza box” hardware would have taken ages – we still would be doing it!ShareWe chose the VCE Vblock System as a cost-efficient, highly available and scalable virtualized environment. The converged infrastructure combined storage, networking, compute and virtualization into one system, running SAP business applications, Siemens Teamcenter and NX CAD Server software. We also invested in EMC Avamar for backup system redundancy, as well as VMware vCenter Operations Management Suite, Cisco UCS Manager and VCE Vision Intelligent Operations to streamline the management and operations of our virtualized environment.Read the Eclipse Aerospace Case StudyVCE and Presidio, a key partner in the rollout, helped us virtualize 100% of our company while the business was still running. VCE’s quick time to deployment helped us grab initial value from our data center, while investing in future assets. About 90% of our physical to virtual migration was completed in the first month and the entire operation was completed in just three months.The process consolidated the three computer rooms into three racks with excess capacity on the Vblock System. We have not only significantly saved on power, air conditioning and space, but we also have room to grow. My team can easy scale up or down depending on resources and business requests without worrying about capacity or performance.Even though we’re a small team, VCE gave us the ability to efficiently manage our resources like a large IT organization. We don’t have to only focus on maintaining legacy equipment, but prioritize our efforts on growing business needs. Most of our upgrades and patches can even run during business hours without interrupting operations. Most importantly, VCE’s support, availability and performance give us the confidence to enjoy our nights and weekends.Make sure you attend my session, “Vblock Systems and Eclipse Aerospace: A Customer’s Experience,” with John Lockyer, VCE Americas CTO, at EMC World on Wednesday, May 7 from 8:30 – 9:30 am PT.Sharelast_img read more
