Shannon airport takes global award

first_imgTwitter SHANNON airport has taken another major step forward having  won a major award at a leading aviation event in Chicago.The prestigious award sees the airport, which only gained its independence in January of last year, go one step further than last year when it was runner-up in the same category.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The World Routes Awards 2014 were presented late on Monday night at a spectacular event at the Field of Museum of Natural History.  The awards are for excellence in marketing by airports globally and are divided into just four categories, based on airport size.  The Awards ceremony was attended by 3,000 delegates, representing 300 airlines, 800 airports and 200 tourism authorities.The event doubled as the Chicago Network Evening and was one of the high points of the three-day annual World Routes gathering of aviation organisations from across the globe.  The three-day event brings together the largest range of airlines, airports, tourism authorities, civil aviation authorities and more from all corners of the world. It is the largest and most prestigious such event, attracting the most senior representatives from a wide variety of organisations who wish to meet, plan and conduct business for new global routes.Speaking from Chicago, Shannon Group plc CEO Neil Pakey said, “Winning the World Routes Awards is an amazing achievement for Shannon, not least so soon after it was made an independent entity.  It’s not just the winning of the award but also the fact that the awards are decided on by the airlines themselves.  Airlines are a key constituent and this shows Shannon is turning a lot more heads now.“It has not been achieved without hard work, however, and there is a lot more of that ahead of us but the World Routes award is outstanding recognition for our team at Shannon. It sends a clear message to them that they are very much on the right track and we continue to remain there.  Also, winning this award is worldwide promotion that we simply could not buy and in front of the key decision makers for airlines across the world.” Facebook Previous articleOpening night: The Royal Picture Show festivalNext articleProspect of new 30-bed unit to alleviate pressure on Limerick A&E Bernie Englishhttp://www.limerickpost.ieBernie English has been working as a journalist in national and local media for more than thirty years.

A general criterion for the release of background potential energy through double diffusion

first_imgDouble diffusion occurs when the fluid density depends on two components that diffuse at different rates (e.g. heat and salt in the ocean). Double diffusion can lead to an up-gradient buoyancy flux and drive motion at the expense of potential energy. Here, we follow the work of Lorenz (Tellus, vol. 7 (no. 2), 1955, pp. 157–167) and Winters et al. (J. Fluid Mech., vol. 289, 1995, pp. 115–128) for a single-component fluid and define the background potential energy (BPE) as the energy associated with an adiabatically sorted density field and derive its budget for a double-diffusive fluid. We find that double diffusion can convert BPE into available potential energy (APE), unlike in a single-component fluid, where the transfer of APE to BPE is irreversible. We also derive an evolution equation for the sorted buoyancy in a double-diffusive fluid, extending the work of Winters & D’Asaro (J. Fluid Mech., vol. 317, 1996, pp. 179–193) and Nakamura (J. Atmos. Sci., vol. 53 (no. 11), 1996, pp. 1524–1537). The criterion we develop for a release of BPE can be used to analyse the energetics of mixing and double diffusion in the ocean and other multiple-component fluids, and we illustrate its application using two-dimensional simulations of salt fingering.last_img read more

Tiana Mangakahia named to Nancy Lieberman Award watch list

first_imgTiana Mangakahia has been named to the 2019 Nancy Lieberman Award watch list, presented by the Basketball Hall of Fame. She’s one of 20 players on the list, which honors the nation’s top Division I point guard each season.Mangakahia broke out last season in her first year with the Orange, averaging a double-double with 17.5 points and 10.2 assists per game en route to being named first-team All-ACC. She led the Orange in both categories as well as steals, which she swiped at a rate of 2.5 a game.Her 304 assists last season were an ACC record, which she broke against Boston College in February. She also led the country in that category. The Brisbane, Australia native racked up 14 double-doubles and came within a point of the SU record for points in a single game with her 44-point performance against Georgia Tech.The 5-foot-6 junior and the Orange will take on Sabrina Ionescu, the reigning Lieberman Award winner, on Nov. 10 when SU travels to Oregon for its second game of the season. In total, Syracuse will play eight of the 19 other members of the watch list, including three in-conference foes.
