Trending Videos It was only a matter of time before BMW followed-up on the two-door M4 CS edition with a four-door, M3-based variant.Like the M4 CS, the M3 CS is powered by BMW’s twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre inline-six cylinder engine with 453 horsepower, a significant bump from the standard M3’s 425 HP. The M3 CS gets a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, which is the only choice for this model, but enough for a zero-to-1oo km/h run in just 3.7 seconds. Top speed, when equipped with the Driver’s Package – available across the M3 lineup – is 280 km/h.The M3 CS gets a few cosmetic and chassis tweaks to set it apart from the standard M3, along with a 50-kilogram weight loss. The CS designation is no stranger to BMW, having adorned sports coupes ever since the Bertone-designed 1961 3200CS.   Trending in Canada ‹ Previous Next ›last_img read more

Living off-campus? Let’s be neighborly

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Published: Aug. 21, 2014 By Eileen Sherman, CUSG, Director of City and Neighborhood Relations Susan Stafford, Director, Off-Campus Housing & Neighborhood RelationsAs we kick off the school year, let’s take a moment to recognize our place in the city of Boulder community. With many of us living in neighborhoods, amongst families and individual residents, we have the responsibility to take care of the community we live in and respect the people around us. Here are a few ways we can be good neighbors to our fellow classmates and Boulder residents: Smile! Boulder is the number one college town in the U.S. Get to know your neighbors, make a connection, and give them your phone number. Be safe. Always keep your doors and windows locked. Keep the community safe by leaving your porch light on at night. Keep the community looking vibrant! If you see litter or trash in your yard or in the street, please pick it up. Be aware of the city of Boulder bear ordinance going into full effect Oct. 1. For more info, check out the city of Boulder website. Keep noise levels down at all hours of the day; there are laws about this. When hosting a party off-campus, consider Party Registration: Unlike a nuisance party ticket, registering your party is free. If you receive a noise complaint about your house, police dispatch will call and give you a warning. You will have 20 minutes to shut the party down, avoiding the police and a ticket.Let’s be conscious of where we live, who we live next to, and how we can make the city of Boulder a better, cleaner and safer place.last_img read more

FT System L.Sensor.O2 Wins SIMEI Technology Innovation Award

first_imgFacebook AdvertisementL.Sensor.O2 Non-Destructive laboratory test instrument used to measure the content of O2 and CO2 in plastic and glass containers.FT System, in partnership with the CNR researchers and the University of Padua, developed the L.Sensor.O2. The instrument is the first of its kind to utilize laser spectroscopy technology in the gaseous phase, for non-destructive measurement of oxygen in glass and plastic containers.The L.Sensor.O2 instrument includes an optical/mechanical component which positions the container for analysis and an eletronic component for the control interface and analysis software.The measurement is achieved using a low power, class 1 laser which passes a beam through the headspace of the container.The instrument is able to measure the percentage of O2 in the headspace, PPM of dissolved O2, total pressure inside the container, partial pressure from CO2 and the content of dissolved CO2 in g/l.The technology allows the L.Sensor.O2 the ability to perform the measurement independent of the color of the container.The L.Sensor.O2 is particularly safe to operate as it does not require the container to be opened or pierced, thereby removing the risk of busting a container.The test cycle is fast, repeatable and the system is simple to operate. The L,Sensor.O2 requires no consumable components and has no wear parts. The technology replaces other techniques which requires either prior preparation of the container to be tested or utilize an invasive probe.The L.Sensor.O2 allows the operator to significantly increase the frequency of samples tested and eliminates the variability associated with manual, destructive test techniques.The system is portable allowing it to be placed in the production area for fast, reliable monitoring of the oxygen that enters the container during the filling and capping process.Advertisement Twitter ReddIt Home Industry News Releases FT System L.Sensor.O2 Wins SIMEI Technology Innovation AwardIndustry News ReleasesFT System L.Sensor.O2 Wins SIMEI Technology Innovation AwardBy Press Release – November 18, 2013 93 0 Email Linkedin TAGSAnalyzerFT SystemL.Sensor.O2SIMEISIMEI-ENOVITIS Share Pinterest Previous articleAfternoon Brief, Nov. 15Next articleFT System – Oxygen Measure – Non Invasive Laboratory Instrument Press Releaselast_img read more

Police to go after Criminals in St. James

first_imgAdvertisements RelatedPolice to go after Criminals in St. James Police to go after Criminals in St. James National SecurityMay 11, 2010 RelatedPolice to go after Criminals in St. Jamescenter_img RelatedPolice to go after Criminals in St. James FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Commissioner of Police, Owen Ellington, has said that the St. James police will be relentless in going after the criminals, which continue to wreak havoc in the parish.He said that measures are being put in place to contain the violence including “security and stability operations in the troubled communities.”“We are going after the criminals; we have a plan of action working with. We have caught up with some of them already while some are on the run, but what I can assure Montegonians of is that they are not going to have to put up with these criminals for much longer, because we are going to be relentless in our pursuit to get them,” the Police Commissioner stated.He was speaking to journalists last week, following a meeting with Montego Bay businessmen and other stakeholders in the parish, which included Minister of National Security Minister, Hon. Dwight Nelson. The closed door meeting was to discuss the increasing crime situation in the parish and Montego Bay in particular.The Commissioner identified the illegal acquisition of money as the root cause of most of the crime in the parish, noting that whenever there is conflict between those involved, they always resort to violence to solve their problems.“They cannot come and report it to the police out of fear of self-incrimination, so what they do is resort to self-help, and self-help for them is violence,” he pointed out.He said that most of the murders that take place under these conditions are being done by persons who know each other, and know about each other.The Commissioner issued an appeal for residents to tell what they know about such activity and to talk to their friends and relatives about the risks of getting involved in criminal activity.“As long as there is one individual in any household involved in crime they are exposing the entire household to risks. Crime does not pay,” he stated.last_img read more

Stereotypical Montanans

first_imgDespite living in a country that is perhaps more connected than ever before, there are still gross misconceptions about Montana and the rural Mountain West in general. And part of the difficulty in overcoming them is that mainstream pop culture continues to present absurd stereotypes to an impressionable audience of consumers. Last week, a producer with the television station VH1, called our office and asked: “I know this is a weird question, but I’m looking for someone who might own a baby bear in your area. Do you know of anyone?”Apparently there is a perception out East that we keep cuddly baby bears as household pets. The conversation then continued, maintaining its insanity.You see, VH1 has unveiled its new fall lineup and one of the shows it will begin airing is called “Real & Chance: Legend Hunters,” which sounds like a winner. The premise is a little convoluted, but a description on VH1’s official blog reads as follows:“Man has always been fascinated with Nature’s Animal Tales. Some are real: the man-eating Catfish of the Kali River, the Mega Shark, Hogzilla, Super Crocs, and the Giant Squid. Some may be only myth: Bigfoot, the chupacabra, the Loch Ness Monster and the Yeti. But two men believe in the stories and they intend to find them all.”Those two men, of course, are Real and Chance, who first gained notoriety on the reality television series “I Love New York,” and expanded on it with their own spinoff “Real Chance of Love,” which has now been spun off into this bizarre outdoors show (if you’re curious, it premieres on Sept. 19). It suffices to say these two are not exactly wildlife biologists.Since we were unable to come up with any baby bear owners, the producer then asked if we knew of anyone who had been attacked or approached by a bear. Each summer locals encounter bears in Montana, we explained, and with a simple online search even VH1 should be able to find one of them. But I doubt any of those Montanans would be eager to spill their guts to Real and Chance.Finally, the producer asked if we knew of any “attractive” photographers to accompany Real and Chance into the backcountry. This is, after all, a reality show where even those behind the lens must be pretty. We weren’t about to recommend any local photographers who would be asked to wander into the backcountry with two men that have no business being there. The conversation ended. And apparently we weren’t much help.The phone call reminded me of a terrible movie I watched recently, in which actors Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker, who played two successful New York businesspeople, are sent to a Wyoming ranch as part of a witness-protection program.“Did You Here About the Morgans?” was actually filmed in New Mexico, but that’s not the only reason it’s a total sham. The screenwriter assumes all rural inhabitants are simple-minded, shoot tin cans, hate outsiders and their politics, square dance, milk cows and consider bingo the most fun someone has all week.I tend to agree with film critic A.O. Scott, who said: “There’s a scene where Hugh Grant confronts a grizzly bear and I’ve never rooted so hard for a predatory animal.”Before moving to Montana, I attended a small junior college in rural Wyoming. That was 13 years ago, but the town of just more than 5,000 people had book stores and coffee shops and even – I know, it’s crazy – Internet access. The Flathead, like elsewhere in the Mountain West, is home to artists, engineers, loggers, entrepreneurs, investors, farmers, retirees, students and even actors. And none of them, that I know of, own a baby bear. All of them know better than to wander into the backcountry looking for one. And for someone to assume otherwise better explains their culture than they could ever explain ours. Stay Connected with the Daily Roundup.
