Obituary: Linda Sue Donahoo, 68

first_imgLinda Sue Donahoo, nee Downing, peacefully departed this earth on July 23, 2018. A dedicated special education teacher for more than 40 years, she leaves behind a family who loves her and legacy that will survive for generations to come.She is survived by sons, Douglas and Andrew, brothers Charles and Roger, and an extended family who will long remember Linda as a loving mother, sister, aunt, and friend.She was preceded in death by D.W. (Dennis), her husband of 43 years, and parents Harold and Shirley.A graduate of Kansas State Teacher’s College (now Emporia State University) in 1972, she dedicated her life to teaching, touching the lives of students in Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, and Connecticut. Linda married Dennis in 1973, and the two of them built a life of love, respect, and family. As William Arthur Ward noted, “A great teacher inspires.” Linda Donahoo inspired countless students to achieve greatness on their terms, both in the classroom and beyond. She helped those who in previous generations would feel dismissed or discounted find their place and success in school and in life. By far, her most challenging job as a teacher was raising two sons. With the help of Dennis, they helped Doug and Drew through the early years, angst-ridden adolescence, all the way to occasionally rocky adulthood. Throughout, we knew nothing but love, support, and tenderness. She is loved beyond measure, now and far into the future. Visitation will be 12:30 – 2:00pm Friday July 27 at the Johnson County Funeral Chapel, 11200 Metcalf followed by a memorial service at 2:00pm. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Emporia State University Foundation. Fond memories and condolences for the family may be left at johnsoncountychapel.com.Obituary submitted by Johnson County Chapellast_img read more

‘Don’t put consumers at risk’, Society tells CMA

first_imgPromoting competition in the legal sector by cutting protections could place vulnerable consumers at risk of exploitation. That was the message from Law Society president Robert Bourns as he addressed regulators on the best way forward for the legal profession.As the Gazette went to press, Bourns was due to speak at the London School of Economics about the impact of the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) study into the legal sector.Bourns was expected to address:The risks of reducing protection for consumers in the name of encouraging competition between providers: ‘We do not support – indeed we oppose – changes that undermine the standing of solicitors (at home and abroad) and risk confusion and detriment to the consumer.’The long-running conflict with the SRA about allowing solicitors to work in unregulated entities. This would involve consumers receiving advice from solicitors not bound by client rules, not able to offer legal professional privilege and not offering access to the Legal Ombudsman to raise complaints.Bourns stressed that none of what he said should be seen as attempt to ‘ossify’ the market and that the Society is open to change in the way the profession works.Last month the CMA published its report into the legal sector after a year-long study. It said legal services providers should be required to publish information about price to help consumers navigate their way through the market.The report said the current regulatory system was not a major barrier to competition but may not be sustainable in the long term.last_img read more

Kalinago Territory to benefit from Computer Center

first_imgLocalNews Kalinago Territory to benefit from Computer Center by: – December 10, 2015 123 Views   no discussions Share Share Tweetcenter_img Share Photograph of the Roseau North Computer Centre (file photo)Residents of all ages from the Kalinago Territory will now be able to access training and expertise in computer related skills offered through a computer centre in Salybia, a press release issued by the Ministry of Kalinago Affairs on Thursday 10 December 2015 indicates. In keeping with its mandate, the Ministry of Kalinago Affairs has embarked on the development of the computer centre, and with the full support of the National Telecommunication Regulatory Commission able to secure the main operative computers and printer for the project. The Community Development Officer (Youth) within the Ministry has spearheaded the initiative from its inception and garnered resources from various agencies to renovate the existing Tunubuku Reference Library in Salybia to house the centre. This initiative is projected to positively impact the youth and all members of the community with a special emphasis on harnessing the creativity endowed in our people and also develop computer literacy as a relevant part of human education.The centre is expected to focus on a variety of learning modules which will train individuals of the community in an array of computer skills, and will also provide basic information technology related services. The facility has been recently fitted with a 5.5 Kw solar system, from the wider Kalinago Solar Project, which will make it the first ‘green computer centre’ on the island.

Cree and Eta Devices to Demonstrate the World’s Most Efficient Power Amplifier (70%+) for Mobile Base Stations

first_imgCree, Inc. and Eta Devices, Inc. demonstrated the world’s most efficient reported power amplifier for mobile base stations at the 2013 Mobile World Congress, February 24-28, in Barcelona, Spain.  Current-generation mobile-base-station amplifiers employing silicon LDMOS transistors can provide amplifier efficiencies up to 45 percent. By contrast, Eta Devices’ next-generation power amplifiers are able to deliver efficiencies higher than 70 percent under a 4G LTE modulation format and are thus poised to revolutionize current industry efficiency standards. “Eta Devices’ next-generation power amplifiers leverage the performance and reliability advantages of Cree’s GaN HEMT RF transistors to realize game-changing efficiency benefits for the mobile-base-station industry,” said Jim Milligan, business director, Cree RF. “Our transistors have been instrumental in demonstrating Eta Devices’ amplifiers, which perform 50 percent more efficiently than the best incumbent silicon power amplifiers currently available in the 4G LTE market.” The world’s mobile networks consume approximately 120 TWh of electricity per year, and 50–80 percent of these networks’ power is consumed by their power amplifiers and associated components. Implementing Eta Devices’ new power amplifier solution on a global level could save mobile operators 60 TWh of energy per year, which is equivalent to the amount of power produced by more than seven average-sized American nuclear power plants. It could also save up to 50 percent of the $36.5 billion spent to power mobile base stations each year.  “Mobile operators gain dramatic advantages by adopting our new technology,” said Mattias Astrom, CEO of Eta Devices. “In addition to cost savings, our power amplifiers provide operators with a significantly reduced carbon footprint, which contributes to a more sustainable planet. In fact, if implemented on a global basis, our solution would reduce carbon emissions by approximately 36 million tons per year, which is equivalent to eliminating the annual greenhouse gas emissions produced by 7 million cars.”last_img read more
