Courtesy/UNM-LAUNM-LA News:In response to the extended uncertainty regarding COVID-19, UNM-Los Alamos (UNM-LA) is in the process of a strategic analysis and revision of the fall schedule of classes.With the revised schedule, most fall classes will be online, with selected classes offered as face-to-face (traditional classroom) or hybrid (face-to-face meetings and online assignments).Approximately two-thirds of the fall classes will be offered online, either as “remote scheduled” (classes meet virtually at a predetermined date and time, also known as synchronous online) or as “remote arranged” (classes are online with no predetermined class meeting times, also known as asynchronous online). The remaining classes will be offered as face-to-face or hybrid.Face-to-face and hybrid classes will be available for selected classes that rely on hands-on activities in a classroom setting. This includes laboratory-based classes such as biology and chemistry; EMT and CNA classes; selected engineering classes, and Career Technical Education (CTE) courses like welding.Building and classroom capacities will be closely monitored to allow for recommended social distancing, with some classrooms relocated to larger rooms. All faculty, staff and students will be expected to wear face coverings when on campus and in the classrooms.“We know that students have different learning styles and preferences, they have varying access to technology, and unique student support needs,” Director of Student Affairs Kathryn Vigil said. “We are a diverse campus community and our schedule needs to dynamic to meet the needs of students and faculty.”Registration for the originally scheduled fall classes began April 13. Students who have already registered may expect minor changes to their schedule.“The process of implementing changes was student focused,” Vigil said. “In the conversion from fully face-to-face to other meeting formats, we were careful to minimize changes related to days and times of classes so that most students will not have to revise their registration.”Dean of Instruction Dr. Sharon Hurley said, “The revised schedule for the fall semester allows us the flexibility of offering carefully selected traditional face-to-face classes for those courses that are best offered in a live classroom setting. By limiting the number of students in the courses, and redesigning classroom layouts and traffic patterns within buildings, we are able to provide this instruction and serve our students’ educational needs. Safety of our faculty, staff and students remains our highest priority, as we continue to provide quality educational opportunities.”These plans are subject to change as the COVID-19 situation and government recommendations evolve over the next few months.Direct questions to Student Services at 505.662.5929 or [email protected] Alamos is an innovative, rigorous, and affordable comprehensive branch community college that provides foundations for transfer, leading-edge career programs, and lifelong learning opportunities.

Peregrine Semiconductor to License its UltraCMOS® Intellectual Property to Murata

first_imgPeregrine Semiconductor has announced its intention to collaborate with Murata on a multisource arrangement for RF switches and other components based on Peregrine’s proprietary UltraCMOS® technology. Under the proposed collaboration agreement, Murata would be granted a license to design and manufacture RF switches and other switch-related components utilizing Peregrine’s technology and intellectual property (IP). The parties expect this agreement to result in an expanded source of supply for these critical RF components, and to assure global OEMs broad access to RF CMOS products. “Global OEM customers of both Peregrine and Murata have for some time requested that the companies implement an independent source of supply for the critical switching elements that are widely utilized in today’s smart phones and other wireless-communications products,” said Jim Cable, Peregrine’s President and CEO. “This agreement marks the first license of Peregrine’s core switch-based intellectual property to a third party and we look forward to entering into this collaborative arrangement with Murata.” Regarding today’s announcement, Norio Nakajima, Murata’s Vice President, Communication Business Unit, stated, “Peregrine has fundamental IP in CMOS-based switches and tuning products with its UltraCMOS technology. This IP licensing arrangement solidifies our existing relationship and future collaboration with Peregrine. We believe that the combination of Murata’s filter and packaging technology with Peregrine’s UltraCMOS switch and tuning technology is a formidable RF front-end solution.”last_img read more


Iniesta bids farewell, as curse remains

first_imgThey had a favourable head-to-head record against Russia and went into the game as heavy favourites. But Spain were unable to conquer a curse that has haunted them since 1934. For many years, La Roja were plagued by a quarter-final hoodoo at the FIFA World Cup™, with the last eight representing a glass ceiling that they simply could not break through. They finally overcame that obstacle at South Africa 2010 and duly lifted the Trophy. On Sunday afternoon in Moscow, however, another curse reared its ugly head again. Spain have still never beaten World Cup hosts at ‘their’ tournament. As if the loss were not painful enough for the Spanish fans, they then found out that the man whose goal made the country world champions in 2010 is retiring from international football. “This is the end of a long chapter for me. Everything has a beginning and an ending. Sometimes farewells don’t go the way you’d like them to,” a crestfallen Andres Iniesta told FIFA after the game. “We gave it our all, but the opposition stuck to their task and penalties are cruel. We came up short; we weren’t able to take that final step. No-one can be blamed for missing a penalty in situations like these,” he added. “It’s a tough pill to swallow, but we’ve got to all learn from this experience.”last_img read more

U. survives scare

first_img Langvad gives Utes spark off the bench E-mail: [email protected] DENVER — So much for all this talk about Utah not being able to get off to a quick start.The Utes solved that problem Friday night against UNLV by jumping out to a 22-point lead. The problem was the Utes almost forgot to finish the deal.Although they improved to 27-4 on the season, the Utes had to hold on for dear life against the hard-charging Rebels to escape with a 73-67 victory at the Pepsi Center.The victory moved the Utes into the finals of the Mountain West Conference tournament for the second straight year against the winner of Friday night’s late game between New Mexico and San Diego State.For the fourth straight year, the Utes played the Rebels in the MWC tourney, the third time in the semifinals. But just when it appeared the Utes were going to cruise to victory and have a chance to rest their starters for Saturday’s final, the Rebels put on a furious rally by scoring as many points in the second half (49) as Colorado State managed the whole game the day before.Behind hot-shooting Romel Beck, the Rebels nearly erased Utah’s 22-point lead and cut the margin to three points three times in the final six minutes, However, the Utes found enough composure to hold on for the scary victory.”We were able to find a way to get it done,” said Utah coach Ray Giacoletti. “It sounds crazy, but we haven’t had to be in that situation a whole heckuva lot this year. But this time of year it doesn’t matter how pretty is as long as you have one more point on the scoreboard than the other team does.”The Utes have made a habit all year of playing a close first half and then going on a couple of second-half runs to win by a comfortable margin. This time they jumped out of the games quickly and went into halftime with a 14-point lead.”We got off to a good start,” said Andrew Bogut, who had his 21st double-double of the season with 25 points and 12 rebounds. “The media has been on us for three months about our first halves. We did this for you.”Thanks Andrew.But the second half the Utes came up with a new twist. Instead of expanding a small lead, they let a large lead dwindle to almost nothing.”In the second half we kind of relaxed and kind of got on our back foot and they came back,” Bogut said. “We had to scramble for that win at the end.”The Utes quickly expanded their 32-18 halftime lead to 22 points at 42-20 with 16:31 left in the game. The Rebels looked like they had already packed it in as they started off the second half with five turnovers, a missed shot and one make on their first seven possessions.But just like that, the Rebels couldn’t miss, scoring on six straight possessions, including three 3-pointers, over the next three minutes. That made it 50-35, but the Utes still didn’t seem too worried as Giacoletti left four of his starters on the bench.The coach acknowledged afterward that he was trying to rest his starters for tonight’s game.When Beck hit still another 3-pointer to make it 52-40 with 9:38 left, Giacoletti decided enough was enough and inserted Bogut, Marc Jackson, Hawkins and Markson back into the game, joining Tim Drisdom.However, the starters didn’t improve things much.Drisdom lost the ball, Markson missed a 3-pointer and Bogut missed the front end of a 1-and-1. Then Bogut missed an inside shot and was tied up and Hawkins had a short shot blocked. When Ricky Morgan scored inside, the Ute lead was down to 52-46 with 8:25 left.The Utes briefly pushed the lead to nine at 57-48, but the Rebels scored six straight points to cut it to 57-54 and it could have been two if Beck hadn’t missed a free throw after scoring inside.That’s when Giacoletti tried some odd strategy. He put his team in a 2-3 zone to keep the Rebels from beating the Utes one-on-one near the basket. When UNLV missed 3-pointers on three of their next four possessions, it looked like brilliant strategy as the Utes moved back to a 63-56 lead.”Certainly that had an effect,” said UNLV coach Lon Kruger.During the last two minutes, the Utes hit eight of 10 free throws and added a layup by Hawkins when he was left alone by the pressing Rebels and the Utes secured the win.”They panicked a little bit, but Utah’s a great team. We lost to the better team,” said UNLV’s Odartey Blankson, who scored 13 points.”They played 40 minutes of great basketball and we played about 12,” said Beck, who led his team with 19 points.Besides Bogut’s 25 points, Hawkins scored 14 points, Bryant Markson chipped in 12 and Jonas Langvad added 10. Langvad hit back-to-back 3-pointers in the first half to help the Utes to a double-digit lead. “You just can’t afford to dig yourselves that big of a hole against a team like Utah,” said Kruger. “I hope they play for a long time.” Related Lobos dispatch Aztecs, await matchup with Utes Utah-UNLV game at a glance Utes outshoot Cougars, reach women’s finalslast_img read more

Homecoming is slated for Oct. 20 against Mulvane. Not sure we’ve informed you of that fact. It is perhaps the latest date for a WHS homecoming in school history. Of course, that is a guess…  With exception to the girls tennis team that moved back into the top 5 in the latest statewide poll, the other teams dropped. Wellington’s football team was ranked in the top tier of various statewide polls after going 3-0. No such luck this week after its loss to Andale. The student section also dropped in the Varsity Kansas weekly poll. “The Red Zone” dropped from No. 5 to No. 7 in the small school division. No explanation was given for what may be the most unscientific poll in history by one individual.Roster: 87 3 70 Braiden Buresh W 9 2 6 170 4 0.5 3 1 Wellington 21 El Dorado 0 Deyton Araujo 10 1 Kenny Fehrman 11 22 2 2 210 Joe Ybarra 0.5 0.75 1 2 1 84 215 Wellington 27 Rose Hill 13 5 150 Conference 0.5 0 Away Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter. 260 68 10 250 12 9 18 Close Forgot password?

Collegiate 140 NAME 10 12 4 0 Hunter Greenlee 2 205 11 60 Karsten Gill 51 home Zane Cornejo 10 Christian Buckman by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Minnesota Twins are in the playoffs. So what does that have to do with the Wellington Crusader football team?The Twins just became the first team in Major League Baseball history to make the playoffs one year after losing 100 games. And it illustrates that each year is its own animal. The Kansas City Royals won’t be winning the World Series this year, nor will the San Francisco Giants or New York Mets. They are already yesterday’s news.So with that in mind, let’s look back at the Wellington Crusaders, who were 0-9 in 2016. But there is no telling how far this Crusaders squad can go in 2017.Wellington suffered a setback against Andale 38-0 last week. Nevertheless, the Crusaders are not any worse off than they were a week ago when the world was brighter at 3-0. That’s the difference between Andale and Rose Hill. The Wellington football hasn’t changed an ounce. And this week the Crusaders have an opportunity to pull off a big win against Wichita Collegiate at home.But it will be tough. Collegiate comes into the game with a bruised ego after losing to Mulvane 35-19. The score was a surprise because up until that point the Spartans looked like the only team who could challenge Andale for the Ark Valley Chisholm Trail League Div. IV title.In that game, Collegiate had a 19-7 lead in the second quarter, and saw Mulvane score two late first half touchdowns, thanks in part to a turnover, to take a 21-19 lead into the half. Mulvane would then score two touchdown in the second half to secure a 16-point victory.Interestingly, Collegiate won the statistical battle — with 350 yards to Mulvane’s 309. Wildcat quarterback Jayden Price accounted for 208 of those yards on nine passes, four of them for touchdowns including two for 55 and 45 yards. In the rushing department, Mulvane averaged 2.29 yard per play. That isn’t a lot. Mulvane’s success was its ability to pass.Collegiate is currently the number 1 passing offense in the league. Cody McNerney is the AVCTL DIV’s top passer with 935 yards passing. He’s pretty accurate going 54 of 114 for a 47.37 percent success rate. When he isn’t throwing, he is running and leads the team with 303 yards – fourth in the league.He has several targets. Six receivers grace the league’s top 15 reception yards. Wellington only has one with De’Andre Washington at No. 3.Despite Price’s ability to take Collegiate’s defense to the cleaners, the Spartans are still No. 1 in the AV-CTL DIV in pass defense and, yet it ranks dead last on rushing defense. That bodes well if Joe Ybarra, the league’s third leading rusher can get open. Grey Hatfield should be at full strength to help him out.Wellington still is the second rated defense despite giving up 338 yards last week to Andale. The thing about the game, if there was one positive, after the first drive, Andale’s offense had to battle for every touchdown drive thereafter, including making three fourth downs.The Crusaders also were plagued with penalties, and an ineffectual offense especially in the passing department.The Crusaders have their work cut out for them. But if they can pull off a win over Wichita Collegiate, this could make this season very interesting from this point forward.Wellington-Collegiate game at a glance:W.
