Prairie Village man faces possession with intent to distribute charge after Monday arrest

first_imgWilliam Harrison MossThe 29-year-old Prairie Village man arrested Monday after neighbors heard him shooting guns in his backyard is facing two drug charges in Johnson County District Court.William Harrison Moss remains in Johnson County Jail with bond set at $50,000 four days after his arrest on Homestead Drive. Police searched the residence after responding to a shots-fired call and found a significant amount of marijuana and evidence suggesting a pot growing operation.Moss currently stands charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and level three possession with intent to distribute. That charge suggests police found somewhere between 25 and 450 grams of marijuana on the property.A Johnson County District Attorney’s Office employee said it was possible he could face additional charges — including charges for discharging a firearm — after his case is assigned to a prosecutor. Moss made his first appearance in court Wednesday, and has a no-go preliminary hearing set for March 26.Moss’s father, William Irvin Moss, was taken to Wyandotte County Jail after police came to the Prairie Village home Monday because Kansas City, Kan., officials had a bench warrant out for him. A municipal court clerk in Wyandotte County said the bench warrant was for an environmental violation, which could be related to something as simple as storage of garbage on a property. The elder Moss has a court date set in Wyandotte County for March 25. He is not longer in Wyandotte County jail, and does not face any charges in Johnson County at this point.last_img read more

Smokers’ memories could help them quit

first_imgShare Email Rather than inciting fear, anti-smoking campaigns should tap into smokers’ memories and tug at their heartstrings, finds a new study by Michigan State University researchers.Advertisers often use nostalgia-evoking messages to promote consumer products, and that tactic could be just as effective in encouraging healthy behaviors, argue Ali Hussain, a doctoral candidate in the School of Journalism, and Maria Lapinski, professor in the Department of Communication.“A lot of no-smoking messages are centered around fear, disgust and guilt,” Hussain said. “But smokers often don’t buy the messages and instead feel badly about themselves and the person who is trying to scare them.” Share on Twitter LinkedIncenter_img Share on Facebook Pinterest According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, cigarette smoking is the leading cause of preventable disease in the United States, accounting for one of every five deaths. Smoking rates have declined, but in 2015, 15 of every 100 adults were active smokers.Despite the health risks, a key hurdle for health communicators is rejection and avoidance of messages, Lapinski said.Hoping to find a solution, researchers conducted a study of smokers, ages 18 to 39, exposing some to a nostalgic public service announcement Hussain created and some to a control message.Those who viewed the PSA reported greater nostalgic emotions and displayed stronger negative attitudes toward smoking, especially women.Starting with images of childhood memories, the PSA script includes phrases such as, “I remember when I was a boy” and “I miss the simplicity of life, being outside on a warm summer night,” making references to familiar smells and tastes from bygone days. It ends with the narrator remembering when someone introduced him to cigarettes and a call to action.So why did it work?Nostalgia-themed PSAs play off consumers’ most cherished and personal memories, so they feel more engaged, the researchers said. And that nostalgic thinking influences attitudes and behaviors.“Our study, which to our knowledge is first of its kind, shows promise for using nostalgic messages to promote pro-social behaviors,” Lapinski said. “We know that policy and environmental changes have an influence on smoking and this study indicates persuasive messages can influence smoking attitudes.”The study is published in Communication Research Reports.last_img read more

‘Named and shamed’ barrister in breach of conduct code

first_imgThe public access barrister publicly named by the Legal Ombudsman in 2014 because of the number of complaints against him has been found in breach of professional conduct rules.Tariq Rehman, head of chambers at Kings Court Chambers, Birmingham, was found to have failed to take all reasonable steps to ensure his chambers were administered competently and efficiently and were properly staffed, after Kings Court Chambers delayed paying a refund of £1,100 to a lay client.A Bar disciplinary tribunal said the delay was by reason of administrative incompetence or inefficiency of Rehman or staff he managed.The tribunal also found that he had ‘failed to take all reasonable steps to ensure his chambers were managed competently and efficiently in that payments due to public access clients by way of refund of fees or compensation recommended by the Legal Ombudsman or agreed, were delayed by administrative competence of inefficiency of Tariq Rehman or staff managed by him.’A £900 refund was agreed in November 2013, but not paid until May 2014, a £450 refund was delayed by four months and a £2,900 refund was delayed from May 2014 until the present day, the tribunal heard. The tribunal deferred sentencing.last_img read more

GaN-Based Advanced Signal Amplifiers to Enable ESA’s Mission to Survey Global Forest Cover

first_imgThese alternative transistors are based on gallium nitride (GaN), hailed as the most promising semiconductor since silicon. Versatile GaN’s ‘wide bandgap’ nature means it has the potential to provide 10 times more radio frequency output power than traditional semiconductors, while also operating at much higher temperatures. As a plus for space, it is also inherently radiation resistant, so can cope with the space environment including unpredictable space weather caused by the Sun.More than a decade ago, ESA saw the potential of GaN technology, and the importance of developing a reliable supply chain for space use. The result, in 2008, was the GaN Reliability and Technology Transfer initiative – GREAT2, working with European research institutes and industry to manufacture and test space compatible GaN microwave transistors and integrated circuits. The first GaN product flew aboard ESA’s Proba-V mission in 2013.That early flight-demonstration showed the Biomass team that gallium nitride was ready for them to take up. Then, in 2014, the hard work began. The three-year programme that followed was the most extreme set of quality control processes imaginable. The work was undertaken for ESA by United Monolithic Semiconductors, responsible for the transistor technology, and Tesat-Spacecom, overseeing their assembly, packaging and space qualification, with Airbus Defence and Space overseeing the overall Biomass mission.To begin with, the GaN wafer batches themselves underwent radio frequency and electrical testing, and were subjected to temperature extremes and squashed or pulled apart. As a next step, functional circuit samples were subjected to accelerated lifetime testing, running for more than 3000 hours with no RF power output degradation to pass ‘lot acceptance testing.’ To safeguard them from the extremes of the orbital environment, the transistors needed to be fully laser-soldered within hermetic packages, followed by various tests to ensure a solid seal, ranging from X-ray inspection to hitting them and detecting the level of echo. Once fully packaged, parts were tested at random from both the 15 W and 80 W qualification runs for a variety of trials such as vibration and other mechanical testing, microscopic inspection, endurance tests or signal output shape and character. The devices have also completed radiation testing – simulating the interaction with charged particles encountered in space – as well as for various destructive effects known to be triggered by operating high-power radio systems in vacuum.As a result, these GaN transistors are now fully cleared for integration into the final Biomass radar instrument design. Providing the right technology at the right time for the crucial Earth-observing mission and being also available for other ESA and European missions in the future. The European Space Agency’s (ESA) upcoming global-surveying mission to survey the Earth’s forest cover, Biomass Earth Explorer, is set to launch by 2022. Under the 5-year mission, the Biomass Earth Explorer satellite, with its 12-m diameter radar antenna will pierce through woodland canopies to perform a global survey of Earth’s forests – and see how they change over the course and also chart the amount of biomass and carbon stored in these forests.Trees are an integral, much-loved element of the environment; they also hold clues to the collective future. Knowing the amount of carbon bound up in forest biomass will sharpen the understanding of climate change and its likely effects on the global carbon cycle.The Biomass mission will achieve this using a ‘synthetic aperture radar’ to send down signals from orbit and record the resulting backscatter, building up maps of tree height and volume. To see through leafy treetop to the trees themselves, Biomass will employ long-wavelength ‘P-band’ radar, which has never previously flown in space. It will have its signals amplified to travel down from a 600-km altitude orbit down to Earth and back. The long-wavelength P-band synthetic aperture radar (SAR) will send down signals from orbit and record the resulting backscatter, to build up maps of tree height and volume, and sharpen estimates of global carbon stocks.In order for the signals to travel down to Earth and back, with a starting point at an altitude of 600 km above the Earth, they’ll have to be amplified. According to Biomass Payload Manager Florence Hélière, traditional amplifiers would be too cumbersome for a satellite using P-band radar. So, the team turned to GaN-based solid-state transistors for their amplifier needs. ESA’s Directorate of Technology, Engineering and Quality worked with the Biomass mission team on the advanced signal amplifiers needed to make the mission feasible, based on the most promising semiconductor since silicon. last_img read more

Setelah 55 Tahun, Boeing Akhirnya Lepaskan Gelar Sebagai Raja “Narrow Body”,Rute ke Hong Kong Lesu, Garuda Indonesia Susutkan Frekuensi Penerbangan Jadi…

first_imgBoeing 737 dan Airbus A320 Mungkin beberapa dari Anda masih ingat dengan salah satu predikat prestisius yang pernah disabet oleh salah satu varian pesawat narrow body milik Boeing – 737, yang didaulat sebagai pesawat terlaris sepanjang sejarah kedirgantaraan global. Namun apalah arti sebuah gelar jika tidak bisa mempertahankannya. Ya, tahun 2018 lalu, Boeing tersandung kasus Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS) pada varian 737 MAX 8 yang menyebabkan semua ‘borok’ perusahaan di balik pengadaan moda ini seolah terbongkar satu per satu. Lalu, masihkah pabrikan pesawat asal Negeri Paman Sam ini bercokol di puncak kejayaannya?Baca Juga: Boeing 737 Sabet Predikat Sebagai Pesawat Terlaris Sepanjang Sejarah Aviasi GlobalJawabannya tentu saja tidak. Ini merupakan anti-klimaks dari sejarah Boeing 737, dimana tidak hanya sekedar jatuh tersungkur saja akibat sistem anyar MCAS tersebut, melainkan juga nama Boeing kini seolah hilang pamor dan tidak lekang dari sesuatu yang berbau negatif. KabarPenumpang.com mengutip dari laman businessinsider.sg (18/11), Boeing sudah lebih dari 55 tahun menyandang predikat sebagai produsen pesawat narrow body paling laris di dunia. Sebuah rentang waktu yang bisa dibilang sangat lama untuk mempertahankan gelar tersebut. Namun seperti yang sudah disebutkan di atas, ‘hanya’ karena kesalahan pada sistem MCAS, Boeing harus mengikhklaskan semuanya. Tidak hanya predikatnya saja sebagai produsen pesawat terlaris di dunia, melainkan juga nama besarnya, sahamnya, hingga kepercayaan dari para konsumennya.Lain cerita dengan rival abadinya, Airbus, dimana produsen kedirgantaraan asal Benua Biru ini mampu dengan sangat jeli menyalip ‘kebobrokan’ yang tengah dialami oleh Boeing. Pengembangan dari dua pesawat generasi terbaru (salah satunya adalah Airbus A321XLR) membuat pamor Airbus perlahan mendongak dan menyaingi Boeing.Menurut laman sumber, hingga akhir Oktober kemarin, Boeing secara keseluruhan mencatat ada 15.136 pesanan yang masuk untuk keluarga 737 (mencakup semua model). Sedangkan di waktu yang sama, Airbus menoreh 15.193 pesanan untuk keluarga A320 untuk semua modelnya. Ya, Airbus sudah berhasil mencuri tahta dari Boeing yang disandang lebih dari 55 tahun lamanya.Baca Juga: 737-800, Didapuk Jadi Varian Paling Laris di Keluarga Boeing 737Padahal, pada akhir tahun 2018 saja, jumlah pesanan untuk varian A320neo milik Airbus masih tertinggal sekira 400 unit dari varian 737 MAX milik Boeing. Namun itu tadi, kecelakaan fatal yang menimpa Lion Air dan Ethiopian Airlines (keduanya sama-sama menggunakan varian 737 MAX 8) menjadi titik balik dari masa kejayaan Boeing.Ratusan hingga ribuan pesawat 737 MAX oleh semua maskapai yang ada di seluruh dunia menjadi momen yang sangat tepat bagi Airbus untuk membalikkan keadaan dan mempertahankannya hingga hari ini.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Relatedlast_img read more
