School Earthquake Competition

January 23rd, 2012 9 comments

San Diego, CA, March 26, 2007 — Sixth-grade students from Carmel Del Mar Elementary School shrieked with unabashed amazement about 2 p.m. Tuesday at a UC San Diego earthquake-safety research complex eight miles east of campus. All but one of the seven-story buildings constructed by 20 teams of students in their classrooms toppled during Tuesday’s quake test, with K’NEX rods, connectors, and building parts scattered across the surface of UCSD’s largest shake table.

The noisy learning experience was part of a unique earthquake-safety competition organized by Philip Yu, a graduate student in the Jacobs School of Engineering’s structural engineering department, and involved more than 1,100 fifth- and sixth-grade students from schools in Escondido and Del Mar. UCSD faculty also helped, as did scientists with the National Science Foundation, the federal agency that funded the construction of the shake facility at the Englekirk Structural Engineering Center.

Old 2009 Pittsburgh Brain Connectivity Competition Overview

December 13th, 2011 No comments

http://www.BrainCompetition.org

http://llmsi.humanbrainmapping.org/index.php?src=gendocs&ref=ohbm2009con_home&category=OHBM%202009%20Conference%20San%20Francisco

Video Transcript:
Hello, I am Walter Schneider, Professor of Psychology at the University of Pittsburgh and Director of the 2009 Brain Connectivity Competition.
The goal of the competition is to advance human Connectome mapping. Based on the analysis of human MRI Structural, Diffusion, and Functional data .
That mapping will identify the Connections, Boundaries and, functional specialization of the brain.
The competition will provide: quantitative competitive assessment of the techniques, visibility to the best groups, and cash prizes
There have been dramatic advances in MRI based fiber tracking in the last two years. We can now image hundreds of thousands of fiber tacks within an individual from source to destination through multiple fiber crossing. In this competition, we will provide leading edge human imaging data on 4 individuals.
The contestants will then use that data to: segment the brains into regions, identify major fiber tracks, quantify the cross connections between areas, and provide a Connectome map of brain topology. The judging will be based on quantitative match to functional and human coded brain areas and fiber tracks.
We expect groups from over 10 countries to enter. We encourage many disciplines to contribute. Advances are needed in multiple areas.
There will be an awards and methods symposium at Organization for Human Brain Mapping meeting in San Francisco on June 22, 2009. $18,000 in prizes will be awarded including $10,000 first place.
I encourage you to monitor the competition at http://www.BrainCompetition.org, sign up to download the data, and to add your effort.
There will be a live Webinar February 9 at 10AM US Eastern Time Zone. The Webinar will be on the web site for review afterwards.
The website provides the rules for the competition, Listing of the Competition Scientific Board, and links to related resources and discussion groups.
This is the launch of n international multiyear competition to foster the growth of the research community. We hope the competition will spur advancement of the systems level understanding of the human brain.
Please join.

Spanish Mackerel fishing competition Mackay game fishing club

November 28th, 2011 24 comments

http://www.reefari.com The spanish mackerel Shootout fishing competition was on again, and reefari a keen sponsor and of course keen to put a crew together for a fish for the weekend. Fishig competitions are good fun, and great way to get keen fisherfolk out on the water for a bit of sport. The annual Spanish Mackerel shootout is run my the Mackay Game fishing club, and highlights the great Spanish Mackerel fishing Mackay has. Usually July through to September is prime Spanish mackerel time, and great fishing amongst the local islands and Whitsunday islands. Make sure you check out our other fishing videos with heaps of great how to catch these great sportsfish.
The weather forecast wasn’t the kindest unfortunately, so numbers were down, but we still had a great turnout considering. Reef fish were also available to be weighed in, so our plan was to target Spanish Mackerel and have a reef fish as well for Red Emperor, Nannygai and Coral trout.
Please see further report and details below,
Sunday 31st July 2011.
The much anticipated 2011 Hitachi Spanish Mackerel Shoot-Out was contested over the weekend of 30th and 31st July. Despite the 15-20knot forecast it was still great to see 102 anglers register for the competition.
The honor of catching the biggest Spanish Mackerel this year (and $1000 cash) went to Shaun Tencate from “Team Tackleworld” who bagged himself a monstrous 30.00kg Spanish Mackerel.
The new fishing categories of Other Game Fish and Sweetlip certainly created a lot of interest this year and the 2 new divisions accounted for over half of the 48 fish weighed in. One of the highlights of the new categories was a 10.75kg Barracuda weighed in by Jeffrey Sorrell to narrowly beat Hendrik Oosthuizen’s 10.15kg Yellow Fin Tuna.
The bottom fishing section of the competition was dominated by the crew that fished on the Reefari owned boat — Raptor 2 with Graham Brake, Greg Reynolds, Ian Meads, Jason Horton and Lee Brake all featuring in the Coral Trout, Nannygai and Sweetlip categories.
Despite the low numbers of fish weighed in 2 divisions in the competition actually resulted in a tie that had to be resolved on the count back system of who actually weighed their fish in first. Graham Brake won both the count backs with his 1.55kg trout weighed in before Dave Lester to win the Heaviest Coral Trout prize and his 9kg Spanish Mackerel weighed in before Allan Colbourne to win the Spanish Mackerel mystery weight prize.
The Fisheries research team attended the weigh in sessions and showed the public how they go about their research into determining age and sex of the fish and letting the public know how they can get involved in their research activities.
A crowd of approximately 200 people attended the final weigh in and presentations held on Sunday 31st July at the Mackay Surf Club. The crowd was kept entertained with nearly $1000 in prizes given away in the mega draw a $250 rod and reel package given away to the only person that managed to hit a wheelie bin twice with a popper in the casting competition that proved quite challenging in the 15-20 knot winds.
Once again the Mackay Game Fishing Club would like to thank all of the tournament sponsors Hitachi, Nixon Communications, 2MT Mining Products, JG Centre, Reef Marine, P&H Minepro, Tackle World, Sharps Heavy Equipment Repairs, Reefari, Sea FM, Hot FM, CQMS Razer, and Bullivants for their contribution to the event and the people of Mackay that made the event the success that is has been. No doubt we will all be lining up in 2012 to do it all again.
Happy Fishing
Ian Meads
President & Weigh Master
Mackay Game Fishing Club Inc.

Please subscribe with more great videos and fishing tips coming soon,
Cheers Greg

Operations Research

November 19th, 2011 11 comments

Operations what? In a nutshell, Operations Research is the discipline of applying advanced analytics to help you make better business decisions. But why o why should any manager care about algorithms? Because these days many major corporation, such as UPS, and Proctor and Gamble, are using Operations Research to solve their complex business problems. The good news: You don’t have to be a mathematician to use OR. The bad news: If you don’t use it, your competitors most likely will — and the competition could eat you alive!
