first_imgChamplain Cable Corp,Champlain Cable Corporation of Colchester, Vermont announces the release of its newest product line, EXAR(R) XLE. XLE product technology combines flexibility of an elastomer and the toughness of an XLPE insulation.It is important to note that, according to a recent news release issued on the DuPont Performance Elastomers website, Hypalon(R) will “cease production” and “exit the business.” XLE fills this void and is technically superior to Hypalon(R) in most wire and cable applications.EXAR XLE is approved by UL and CUL for 1000 volts and 105 degrees Celsius ratings per UL style sheet 3657. XLE is also successfully used in 150 degrees Celsius automotive applications per ISO 6722. UL has also approved XLE for multi conductor cables and has designated UL Style 21614 as a 105 degrees Celsius 1000 volt rated cable.The insulation performance properties of EXAR XLE meet or exceed those of Hypalon(R) (see product comparison data at www.champcable/indust_controlpanels.com(link is external)). EXAR(R) XLE has a UL758 cold bend rating of -70 degrees Celsius. The abrasion resistance is more than twice the abrasion resistance of Hypalon(R). EXAR XLE has excellent oil resistance. EXAR XLE passes 45 degree angle flame tests in accordance with IS0 6722. XLE has excellent dielectric properties and allows for thinner insulation wall thickness resulting in less weight, less space, and better heat dissipation.The flexibility of EXAR XLE is excellent and compares to most elastomeric insulations. EXAR XLE is available in a wide variety of bright colors. The thinner insulation walls and increased flexibility make EXAR XLE an excellent choice for applications including but not limited to motor leadwire, back panel wiring, automotive cables as well as cable jacket insulations. EXAR XLE is targeting the Mining, Electrical Controls, Motor, and Battery markets throughout the world.”EXAR XLE is the result of extremely precise product and application research. The introduction of this primary and jacket insulation comes at a time when the worldwide supply of Hypalon(R) will either cease or will be severely limited in the very near future,” stated Dr. Koksal Tonyali , Champlain’s Vice President of Technology.About Champlain Cable CorporationChamplain Cable Corporation is the premier designer and manufacturer of high performance wire and cable.

first_img The U.S. Government awards this medal in recognition of the institution’s efforts to demonstrate commitment, collaboration and coordination in the fight against the misuse of air space, not only in Colombia, but also in other Latin American countries that have interdiction agreements for the fight against drug trafficking. THE AMERICANS AREN’T INTERESTED IN HELPING COLOMBIA FIGHT DRUG TRAFFICKING. THEY HAVE OTHER INTERESTS. By Dialogo April 17, 2013 This honor makes Colombia more committed to accomplishing its constitutional mission and continuing its work to counter the misuse of air space through new technologies and training to remain at the head of Latin America’s fight against this scourge. Air Force General Tito Saúl Pinilla Pinilla, Colombian Air Force Commander, was honored with the ‘Legion of Merit in the Degree of Commander’ award at a military ceremony in Arlington Air Force Base, Virginia. At the ceremony, the Air Force Commander General was acknowledged for the daily organization and training of crews that are responsible for safeguarding their national territory’s sovereignty, as well as for performing high-standard security operations, which make it possible for the Colombian Air Force to become the most operational institution in the continent, with cutting edge technology capable of operating 24/7 in order to guarantee the security of Colombia’s territory. The United States recognizes the efforts made by the Colombian Air Force in strengthening its professionalism and training offered to crews taking a daily part in operations to counter insurgency, which has allowed them to be recognized internationally in recent years, particularly as seen by their participation in air combat exercise “Red Flag” last year, as well as in upcoming international cooperation strategic exercises, such as “Green Flag”, “Maple Flag” and “Angel Thunder”. last_img read more

first_imgBy Taciana Moury/Diálogo May 22, 2018 The Almirante Sylvio de Camargo Training Center, located on Governor’s Island, in Rio de Janeiro, houses the Brazilian Navy’s (MB, in Portuguese) Peacekeeping Operations School (EsOpPazNav, in Portuguese) since 2008. The school trains MB service members who participate in United Nations (UN) peacekeeping operations or other activities as part of MB’s international commitments. According to Brazilian Marine Corps (CFN, in Portuguese) Lieutenant Colonel Bruno Kochulinski Caldas, head of EsOpPazNav, the unit was created to fill a training gap for service members assigned to peacekeeping operations, “mainly the marine operational groups which were part of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH, in French),” Lt. Col. Kochulinski said. With the new structure, CFN will be able to record experiences, organize internships and workshops that enable mission-related knowledge to be shared, and represent CFN in Brazil and abroad in peacekeeping-related missions. Specific training for MINUSTAH remained in place until the mission ended in 2017. “Brazil’s involvement in Haiti allowed for up-close experience with peacekeeping activities, and expanded MB service members’ knowledge of United Nations doctrine. The work of EsOpPazNav aims at multiplying that knowledge, enabling improvements and dissemination of new tactics, techniques, and procedures at all operational levels,” said Lt. Col. Kochulinski. The school counts with nearly 100 instructors trained in courses in Brazil and abroad, with proven experience in peacekeeping missions. “Instructors come from other military organizations within the Navy, and are deployed with priority when needed for trainings and other activities related to peacekeeping operations,” the officer explained. Courses offered According to Lt. Col. Kochulinski, the institution’s main focus is to train MB service members who are part of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), and also offers courses aimed at engagements in peacekeeping missions. The Troop Contingent Preparation for Peacekeeping Operations Internship is one of the courses offered. Held over a five-day period twice a year, the course is meant for UNIFIL’s maritime task forces (MTF) and marine operational groups. The course prepares the ship’s crew, who will travel to Lebanon, with a program that includes UN’s requirements, referenced in the Core Pre-deployment Training Materials of the UN Peacekeeping Resource Hub. “Practical training takes place at the Navy’s Almirante Marques de Leão Training Center and on the vessel where the crew prepares. It includes simulations of situations that normally occur in UNIFIL, such as boarding operations during a maritime interdiction,” Lt. Col. Kochulinski explained. The Naval Peacekeeping Operations Internship for the Contingents’ General Staff is aimed at General Staff officers who will take on duties such as directly advising the MTF’s commander. “The course is offered twice a year and is based on knowledge transfer of recently returned service members from the mission to the peacekeeping force’s future staff, especially regarding specific activities performed while on duty,” he explained. Once a year, the institution also offers a Special Officers Course on Negotiation in Conflicts with Hostages. The goal is to prepare officers to join negotiation teams or advisory groups in crisis units that involve infiltration of facilities with hostages. “Other armed forces can participate in this course, along with service members from auxiliary forces, the Military Police, and the Fire Department,” Lt. Col. Kochulinski said. He added that in 2018, for the first time, at the request of the Brazilian Army’s (EB, in Portuguese) Agulhas Negras Military Academy, a one of a kind negotiation internship would be offered to cadets, addressing practical activities of basic negotiation techniques and rules. “The school is also responsible for naval patrol related training for visit and inspection groups and detention of prisoners,” Lt. Col. Kochulinski said. EsOpPazNav service members also support the Brazilian Peace Operations Joint Training Center (CCOPAB, in Portuguese), an EB unit with theoretical and practical training for the Humanitarian Demining Internship designed for EB and MB service members, as well as partner nations. “We help set up workshops for the practical application of methods and equipment used in humanitarian demining operations, such as the live explosive deployment workshop and the demining team deployment in an area with characteristics similar to those they would encounter in a real-life scenario,” Lt. Col. Kochulinski explained. The partnership with CCOPAB is reciprocal, said the officer. The EB center coordinates essential doctrine training to deploy troops in peacekeeping operations, one of MB’s troop training stages for UNIFIL. “But EsOpPazNav intends to take over all training tasks for UNIFIL, given the mission’s naval nature, as well as the school’s capacity to provide any training necessary to deploy the Navy troops in a peacekeeping operation,” he said. Students’ approval CFN Captain Adriano Amorim Filgueiras, part of UNIFIL MTF since January 2018, prepared for the mission at EsOpPazNav. In Lebanon, he secures deployment of marines from the Maritime Task Force Command and Asymmetrical Threat Reaction Group. According to Capt. Filgueiras, during training at EsOpPazNav, he learned from instructors’ past experiences anticipating likely scenarios, as well as passing on orders already established in UN documents. “Due to the unusual conditions that a combatant is used to face, it was really important to have more specific guidance,” he said. Training involved a set of classes and lectures instructors and guest officers with vast experience in peacekeeping operations taught. “The expertise of these service members was an essential part of the training,” he concluded.last_img read more

The term may sound like the name of a spy agency file, but Bill Maynard has a more prosaic take on it.“The term ‘big data’ has become a buzzword over the past 12 or 24 months,” says Maynard, managing director for Experian’s Global Consulting practice. “It has always been there, but it has become more accessible to the masses thanks to the increases in technology and raw computing power.”The ability to quickly analyze massive amounts of data allows credit unions to “play in the ‘sandbox,’ ” he says. “That’s recently coined jargon for the ability of any financial institution to jump into a sandbox of data and analyze it as they like. In doing this, credit unions can compete with solutions that put them on an equal basis with much larger financial institutions.”Brandon Bogler, product manager at The Members Group, says credit unions often fail to understand how much data they have. “Our specialty is aggregating data from multiple disparate systems to create a single member view. We draw from different data streams, such as credit, debit, marketing customer information file systems, and core data, and then present the entirety of its relationship with a member to a credit union.” continue reading »last_img read more

first_imgIn your lifetime, you’re going to work with someone who you won’t get along with. Often, it’s a personality conflict. Usually when two personalities clash, both parties are partially to blame. If you find yourself in this situation, here are a few tips for getting past the conflict and moving forward.Keep it on the down-low: Obviously when there’s some conflict, you need to find a resolution. The best thing you can do in the process, is to not let it cause division among your fellow employees. When lines are drawn, and allies and enemies are made, it’ll make it ten times harder to resolve the situation. Don’t make it tougher than it has to be.Take five: A back in forth argument usually won’t get you anywhere. You’ll get emotional and will ignore logic and reason. Take a minute to get your thoughts organized and turn those reactions into responses. A clear head always helps when trying to resolve a conflict.Two rights make an argument: You’ve probably heard that “there’s more than one way to skin a cat.” While this phrase is weird and puzzling to small children, it’s also right on the money. There’s often more than one way to be successful at a task. Remember when you find yourself in a conflict, that people see things differently and neither way is necessarily wrong. 19SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.
