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_imgJudge Grube honored nationally March 15, 2003 Judge Peter Evans Regular News Judge Grube honored nationally Special to the NewsFlorida had a right to be proud when the governor of Nevada proclaimed it “Judge Karl Grube Day” in the state of Nevada.A “Legacy of Quality” became the key phrase as judges and judicial educators from across the country gathered in November in Reno to honor Pinellas County Judge Grube for his 20 years of service as a member of the faculty of the National Judicial College. Since 1983, Judge Grube has taught courses in both civil and criminal law, served as a course coordinator, and provided leadership as chair of the college’s faculty counsel.The NJC was founded in 1963, and is celebrating 40 years of service to the nation’s judiciary this year.Since its inception, the NJC has awarded more than 61,000 professional judicial education certificates. The NJC, located on the historic 255-acre Reno campus of the University of Nevada, is the country’s leading judicial education and training institution.The surprise celebration brought colleagues to honor Judge Grube from across the country. National Judicial College President William Dressel was the first presenter who lauded the judge as a “devoted judicial educator of the highest caliber.”Nevada Supreme Court Chief Justice-elect Deborah Agosti presented Judge Grube with a special order and commendation signed by all the justices of the Nevada Supreme Court, thanking him for his contribution in providing the highest quality judicial education to judges of Nevada and the nation. Justice Agosti also delivered a proclamation from the governor of Nevada declaring a day in celebration of Judge Grube’s accomplishments in the field of judicial education.On behalf of the ABA, Rhode Island District Court Judge Robert Pirraglia also recognized Judge Grube for his service in the annual education programs of the ABA Judicial Division’s National Conference of Specialized Court Judges.From the U.S. Department of Transportation, Brian Chodrow brought greetings from the Outreach Division of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In recognizing the “legacy of quality” left by Judge Grube, the award quoted Aristotle in stating: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”“It is a privilege and an honor to be selected to teach judges and see some of the knowledge that one imparts actually improving the delivery of justice in our courts,” Judge Grube said in accepting the honors.last_img read more

Ba suffered the injury during a collision with former team-mate Fabricio Coloccini during Chelsea’s defeat to Newcastle last weekend, having to be withdrawn owing to the discomfort. That appeared to rule him out of this weekend’s game with Wigan, but the Senegal international tweeted to say he was looking to have a mask fitted. With an accompanying picture of him on a plane, he wrote: “Me and the club docteur in the place (sic) going to milan to get a mask done.” Should Ba have a mask fitted to his face, he would not be the first. His team-mate and captain John Terry wore one against Valencia last season owing to a broken cheekbone, while Paul Gascoigne used one to protect a facial injury while a Lazio player. Chelsea were unable to comment on Ba’s progress or how long he may be out for when contacted. Chelsea striker Demba Ba appears to be trying to accelerate his first-team return by looking for a way around his broken nose. Press Association read more

first_imgAs the Wisconsin football team prepares for a critical matchup against Indiana Saturday, the biggest question mark is still attached to the quarterback position.Wisconsin (6-3, 3-2 Big Ten) head coach Bret Bielema focused on this issue in detail during his weekly press conference Monday, saying he will let the team know Tuesday who will earn the starting nod against Indiana (4-5, 2-3). He will not publicly announce his starter ahead of the game, leaving plenty of speculation as to whether Danny O’Brien or Curt Phillips will take the opening snap.Bielema added both O’Brien and Phillips practiced “extremely well” last week. But regardless of who lines up under center, UW’s head coach said both know what the coaches expect of them at quarterback.“They just have to do the little things well – take care of the football, move the chains, hit the guy that’s open, make the correct call at the line of scrimmage, get us out of a bad call, be able to handle the flow of the game,” Bielema said. “Those things all kind of can be simulated during practice, but you have to base a lot off what you see during the game.”Bielema added it was more the steady play of Stave than the shaky play of O’Brien that allowed the redshirt freshman to take over the starting role midway through the third game of the season.“I wouldn’t say (O’Brien) slid down as much as other people moved up. Joel proved to us he deserves the opportunity to get in there,” Bielema said. “That’s when I made the transition to where we are today.”Along with the quarterbacks, the wide receivers have also dealt with their own set of injuries. Jeff Duckworth, the hero of the Big Ten Championship game last year, and Chase Hammond, a player who has shown flashes of potential this year, have all fought off injuries this year according to Bielema.Awaiting the Badgers Saturday is a rejuvenated Hoosiers team with a high-scoring offense. In its second year under head coach Kevin Wilson, the fast-paced spread attack is moving the chains efficiently against Big Ten defenses.Indiana’s scheme is different from that of many teams the Badgers have faced so far this year, as they play at a higher tempo – one that could create problems for the UW defense.Wisconsin has four or five defensive players that rotate in the defensive tackle and defensive end positions who only play 10 to 12 snaps during the game. But the up-tempo style may not leave enough time for those planned substitutions.Indiana’s defense has also been playing well coming into this week and will line up against a UW offensive line that will have Ricky Wagner starting at left tackle after missing two games..“You’ve got to be able to get rid of the football when you’ve got pressure,” Bielema said. “By that same account, you’ve got to be sound in their protections.”Having the week off has been crucial for the Badgers as key pieces – notably Wagner and defensive end Tyler Dippel – had time to heal injuries and returned to practice during the bye week.Dippel will add depth to a defense that has generally looked impressive this year, as each of the team’s three losses this year have come by three points. But Bielema said the defense is trying to improve its reputation of giving up key scores late in games.“Case in point would be our last game [against Michigan State],” Bielema said. “You’re only as good as your last, and you only are remembered for how you finish games. We obviously weren’t able to close it out the way we wanted.”As the calendar flips to November, the Badgers are about to enter the most important stretch of the season. With the Big Ten Championship game in UW’s sights, there is not much room for error this weekend.A win over Indiana will secure the Badgers a spot in the Big Ten Championship game, while a loss will leave Wisconsin and Indiana tied, with the Hoosiers holding the tiebreaker. UW still has games remaining against Ohio State and Penn State to finish out the regular season.“Since I’ve been here and the past three years, the month of November are all big games,” Bielema said. “It doesn’t matter what your opponent is or who it is, the games in the month of November matter.”The games may be gaining importance for where Wisconsin lands this bowl season, but the head coach said it is not changing his squad’s preparation. “We have a three-game schedule that we have to complete before we move on to the next phase of our season,” he said. “And I think they’ll take it as a one-game approach, as they have every year here in November and hopefully have a positive result.”last_img read more
