‘THIS IS a cost-efficient solution, not a cheap solution’, notes Harald Büthe, Nexans’ Product Development Engineer, of the DuoTrack cabling application that Nexans is introducing on the Odenwaldbahn in Hesse, Germany. DuoTrack is a trunk cabling installation process that incorporates not only a cable, but also all the related cable-laying, securing and branching equipment. The pilot will see cable installed on around 100 km of line between Darmstadt, Wiebelsbach and Eberbach.The project began in September 2006 and cable-laying is scheduled for completion at the end of the month. DuoTrack gained EBA type approval in December 2006, and the Odenwald trial is designed to assess its suitability for deployment on DB’s non-electrified regional lines. Further research for DuoTrack application on a main line is being undertaken between Hamburg and Lübeck.Central to the concept is the shift away from laying cables in lineside troughs. Instead, DuoTrack has a single cable clamped to the running rail. Both copper and optic-fibre lines are integrated in a ‘figure of eight’ cable protected by a high-density polyethylene sheath, aluminium screen and corrugated stainless steel tape for rodent protection.Advances in copper cable and optic-fibre technology allow the combined cable to carry a range of communications links. The optic-fibre core will connect the electronic interlockings currently being installed by DB Netz as part of its wider refurbishment of the Odenwaldbahn, and the copper cable will carry low-voltage power supplies, signalling and level crossing controls. Development of increasingly-secure optic-fibre links raises the possibility of renting out capacity to third parties, such as broadband internet providers, offering an additional source of revenue for regional lines in the future.The evolution of DuoTrack has partly been driven by the need to cater for GSM-R communications which underpin Ertms. DB Netz has been closely involved in the three-year development programme that has culminated in the Odenwald project. Ertms roll-out will necessitate the replacement of vast quantities of outdated or incompatible communications equipment.Rapid installationNexans has worked with partner Contec to develop a tailor-made installation method that is up to 10 times quicker than conventional cable-laying. Contec’s laying train comprises a Unimog, a trailer wagon with four cable drums and a load-balancing regulator. A laying arm runs on the rails just behind the wagon to drop the cable accurately into position on the outside edge of the running rail as the Unimog proceeds at around 3·5 km/h. Nexans believes Contec’s bespoke mountings, together with longer cable lengths, will be sufficient to prevent theft and vandalism.While DuoTrack requires an additional member of staff when compared to a conventional cable-laying team, Büthe suggests the approach will generate cost savings of up to 40%, a significant margin given the financial constraints affecting many regional railways.

NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL Players Association filed a grievance with the league on Tuesday challenging its national anthem policy. The union says that the new policy, which the league imposed without consultation with the NFLPA, is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement and infringes on players’ rights. The filing met a statute of limitations deadline and will be heard by an independent arbitrator, an NFLPA spokesman said.In May, the NFL approved its national anthem policy at its owners meetings in Atlanta. The policy allows players to protest during the national anthem by staying in the locker room, but forbids them from sitting or taking a knee if they’re on the field or the sidelines.Teams will be subject to fines if players don’t comply and will have the option of punishing players.When the league announced the policy, Commissioner Roger Goodell called it a compromise aimed at putting the focus back on football after a tumultuous year in which television ratings dipped nearly 10 percent; some blamed the protests for such a drop. The union said at that time that it would file a grievance against any change in the collective bargaining agreement.The union said Tuesday it has proposed having its executive committee talking to the NFL instead of proceeding with litigation. The union said the NFL has agreed to those discussions.The NFL did not immediately comment about the union’s action.San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick (7) kneels during the national anthem before an NFL football game against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, Oct. 16, 2016, in Orchard Park, N.Y. (AP Photo/Mike Groll)In 2016, then-49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick began protesting police brutality and social injustice by kneeling during the national anthem, and the demonstration spread to other players and teams. It became one of the most controversial and sensitive issues in the NFL, with players saying their messages last year were being misconstrued, while others — including President Donald Trump — called them unpatriotic. Trump even said NFL owners should fire any player who refused to stand during the anthem.Following those comments, more than 200 players protested during the anthem that weekend before the number of protesters dwindled as the season progressed.“We’re here for a bigger platform,” Raiders tight end Jared Cook said during the spring. “We’re not just athletes. We’re people that live this. It’s people in our neighborhood, it’s people that we grew up with, it’s people that we know who are actually living through these circumstances. So when we speak on it, it’s not like we’re just speaking out of the side of our neck. It’s things that actually touch home and things that we can actually relate to.“All I have to say is, I just think it’s sad that it’s veered from something that stood for good and the whole narrative has changed into something that’s negative when that was not what it was initially about in the first place.”The NFL started requiring players to be on the field for the anthem in 2009 — the year it signed a marketing deal with the military.“We want people to be respectful of the national anthem. We want people to stand,” Goodell said at the May meetings, when he dismissed concerns about the lack of union involvement by contending the league met with countless players over the past year.“We’ve been very sensitive on making sure that we give players choices,” the commissioner added, “but we do believe that moment is an important moment and one that we are going to focus on.”The league and the Players Coalition have been working in tandem on efforts to support player initiatives in the community and for a variety of social issues. The NFL is committing $90 million over the next seven years to social justice causes in a three-segment plan that involves league players.___For more AP NFL coverage: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL In this Dec. 24, 2017, file photo, San Francisco 49ers outside linebacker Eli Harold, from bottom left, kneels with safety Eric Reid, wide receiver Marquise Goodwin and wide receiver Louis Murphy during the national anthem before an NFL football game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Santa Clara, Calif.

IN SPORT.ES 26/09/2018 Sepa cuánto debe pagar el Manchester United para echar a Mourinho Upd. on 27/09/2018 at 10:35 CEST Sport EN Jose Mourinho’s future at Manchester United hangs by a thread, but it is a very expensive one. The most recent results the team has suffered, including elimination from the Carabao Cup, have put Mourinho in danger. However Manchester United directors are hesitant to sack him. Mourinho renewed his contract in January until 2020, for 15m euros a season. That is the figure that they are afraid of paying him if they let him go. Even though the fans support Mou, the board are hoping he packs up and walks away, so they can save on his goodbye payment. The situation is uncomfortable.

Moody also tells the story of a female clown who showed up early to a kid’s birthday party, so she waited in her car. Quote, “She looks up and there are four police officers surrounding her. Someone in the neighborhood called in a clown sighting.” Just ask Pam Moody, president of the World Clown Association. She says, quote, “People had school shows and library shows that were canceled. That’s very unfortunate. “The very public we’re trying to deliver positive and important messages to aren’t getting them.” It’s a tough time to be a clown . . . from those real-life creepy clown sightings, to the movie “It” coming out next Friday. It’s getting so bad that GOOD clowns . . . if there even IS such a thing . . . are having a hard time making a living.
Share This!We tried the new Bird Cupcake at Creature Comforts (aka the Animal Kingdom Starbucks) and, boy, do we have news for you!First, this was just one of the many adorable birds we encountered in the Animal Kingdom. Seriously, did you see our IG video of that precious Taveta Golden Weaver bobbing in and out making a nest? If you’re not following us on Instagram, you’re missing a lot.Back to birds of the sugar variety….Our team regularly has intense discussions about food at Walt Disney World. Much of that talk time is spent talking about cupcakes and figuring out how to talk about cupcakes. After one particularly in-depth chat, we decided to take a “tern” (obligatory bird pun, FTW) in our cupcake coverage.Thus, because this is TouringPlans and not Pretty Cupcake Picture Page (dibs on the name) we have to know how a Disney cupcake tastes AND how much icing and cake we’re getting.We started with measuring the physical dimensions of the cupcake (more than one of us regularly carries around a small ruler or tape measure for such tasks). The icing plumage is about two inches tall, similar to the Carousel Cupcake we recently covered.But now, drum roll please, we’ve begun carrying a food scale with us all day every day. That’s right! This is why you click here, folks!We learned that this bright confection owes more than half its weight to icing and chocolate feathers. The entire cupcake comes at 6.1 oz; the icing and feathers weigh 3.1 oz. And yes, we did balance the scale to 0 before weigh-in and we subtracted the weight of the plate (0.6 oz). Now that you know you’ll be consuming almost half a cup of icing with just this one dessert, let’s talk about the taste.This cupcake is exactly what you’ve come to expect from most* Disney specialty or themed cupcakes. This $5.99 treat was theoretically lemon cake filled with blueberry cheesecake cream, but mostly it tasted like lots of sugar; the flavors were muted. But the bright colors make it visually delightful. And the fact that it’s sold steps away from an iconic picture spot makes it an enticing buy. If that Animal Kingdom heat is getting to you and you need a venti cold brew and a sugar bomb to power through to your Avatar FastPass in 6 hours, this is just the ticket!*Sorcerers Hat and Kylo Ren cupcakes in the Studios and anything from Amorette’s not included.
