Power is scheduled to be cut off in the Fort IRC today from about 5:15 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. The outage will be the first of three scheduled during the installation of a new emergency generator for the building.
The next power outage is tentatively scheduled for Saturday October 20, for approximately 8 hours.
The final power outage is scheduled for about 48 hours during Thanksgiving break from Friday November 23 through Saturday November 24.
The new generator will provide electricity for the entire building except for the main chiller. Occupants of the IRC should shut down all electrical equipment 30 minutes before each scheduled power outage to prevent damage to hard drives, power supplies, control panels, etc.
For questions or more information, contact Chris Couch, IRC facilities manager, at 285-3190 or via email.
Readers of The Business Journal of the Triad are getting up-to-date on Aggie research this week.
Page 1 of the weekly newspaper features an article on Dr. Ellie Fini and her research on developing an environmentally sustainable binder for asphalt from hog waste. She’s on her way to creating a company to commercialize the technology. The paper also highlighted the article in its daily email to readers this morning.
Page 3 contains a lengthy interview with Dr. Barry Burks, vice chancellor for research and economic development. Burks discusses the university’s efforts to grow A&T’s research enterprise, the possibility of mandatory federal spending cuts, and A&T’s economic development opportunities.
The Business Journal is available online and in print by subscription.
From The Business Journal:
“Some young tech companies fund themselves with research grants, while others are able to secure backing from private investors. But an event later this month will explore how one can lead to the other.
“The event, held at the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering in Greensboro on Oct. 25, will look at how a successful grant strategy can lead companies to investors.”
The U.S. Department of Transportation says researchers at the institutions will focus on the safety, accessibility and sustainability of general aviation. The group is officially called the FAA Center of Excellence Partnership to Enhance General Aviation Safety, Accessibility and Sustainability (PEGASAS).
The center will be led by Purdue University, The Ohio State University, and the Georgia Institute of Technology. The core team also will include the Florida Institute of Technology, Iowa State University and Texas A&M University.
N.C. A&T is an affiliate member, along with Arizona State University, Florida A&M, Hampton University, Kent State University, Oklahoma State University, Southern Illinois University (Carbondale), Tufts University, Western Michigan University and University of Minnesota, Duluth.
Dr. John Kizito, associate professor of mechanical engineering, will lead A&T’s work with the center. In addition to his aerospace research and teaching, he serves as advisor to mechanical engineering majors concentrating on aerospace. He is also mentoring two Guilford County Schools teachers chosen as Kenan Fellows for a project on designing safe aircraft and a group of A&T students collaborating with students at Purdue to design an experiment to be conducted aboard the International Space Station.
The NSF was up early this morning, announcing that it has awarded $15 million in grants to advance its Big Data initiative. Among the winners: A UNC-CH/Harvard/N.C. A&T team and its project, “DataBridge – A Sociometric System for Long-Tail Science Data Collections.” UNC-CH is the team leader.
Dr. Justin Zhan of the Department of Computer Science is the A&T investigator on the project. The short description:
“The sheer volume and diversity of data present a new set of challenges in locating all of the data relevant to a particular line of scientific research. Taking full advantage of the unique data in the ‘long-tail of science’ requires new tools specifically created to assist scientists in their search for relevant data sets. DataBridge supports advances in science and engineering by directly enabling and improving discovery of relevant scientific data across large, distributed and diverse collections using socio-metric networks. The system will also provide an easy means of publishing data through the DataBridge, and incentivize data producers to do so by enhancing collaboration and data-oriented networking.”
