Spectrum, in collaboration with the Direction Generale des Hydrocarbures (DGH), has started the next phase of its shallow water 3D multi-client seismic acquisition campaign offshore Gabon.The campaign is focused on acquiring seismic programs in under-explored shallow water open blocks.Up to 5,500 km2 of long offset broadband seismic data will be acquired alongside gravity and magnetic recordings.This follows the 11,400 km2 Gabon South 3D survey completed earlier this year and complements over 20,000 km of 2D multi-client seismic data offshore Gabon also held by Spectrum on behalf of the DGH.Spectrum EVP of the Africa Region, Graham Mayhew said, “Large areas of shallow water Gabonese acreage remain unexplored due to the inability of 2D seismic to image structures in the pre-salt, and the lack of modern 3D data. Our new Multi-Client 3D seismic will provide oil companies with new insight into the hydrocarbon prospectivity of these open blocks. “The new 3D data will be processed with PSTM, PSDM and Broadband products with first deliveries in early Q3 2018.The survey is carried out in partnership with China Oilfield Services (COSL).

He and his family moved to Wellington about a year later where his father worked for the Santa Fe Railroad. Ernie is quoted in Zac Burtonâ€™s book as saying â€œgrowing up in Wellington was good for meâ€. Barrett learned the values of discipline and hard work from his parents and coaches. “Barrett played football and loved it but basketball was his passion. Barnett honed his basketball skills in the school gymnasium under Coaches Cade Suran and John Floyd and on the goal his father put up for him in their backyardÂ He also played at his neighbor and good friend Harold Rogers backyard court.Â There he and his buddies would spend many hours shooting baskets and playing pickup games at all times of the year.In 1947, Barrett and Harold earned All-State Honors and led Wellington to its first and to date only State Championship with a 21 â€“ 4 record.Â After high school Harold had committed to play college ball at Oklahoma State under legendary coach Henry Iba and he tried to get Ernie to go there too.Â But under the recruitment of first-year assistant coach Tex Winter, Barnett committed to play for Jack Gardner at Kansas StateHis basketball career at K-State is storied. Â He captained the 1950-51 team that opened one of America’s most spectacular basketball arenas, the fabled Ahearn Field House.Â Barrett earned All-America honors for the 1951 team that posted a 25-4 record and advanced all the way to the NCAA championship game where they lost to Kentucky, 68-58. Â He was named the most valuable player at the East/West All-Star game in Chicago following his senior year.After graduation Barrett was drafted in the first round, seventh pick overall, of the NBA draft by the Boston Celtics. Â Barnettâ€™s basketball career had to wait two years because as a member of the K-State ROTC he had to serve a two-year obligation in the US Air Force as a commissioned officer. After his service, he played one year for the Celtics then sat out a year while getting his coaching career going, then re-joined the Celtics for one more year when Red Auerbach asked him to come back.Following his NBA career, he returned to K-State as assistant basketball coach under “Tex” Winter. Â In 1961 he joined the athletic staff as assistant athletic director and in 1969 was named athletic director. He was the first Kansas-born athlete to lead K-State’s athletic program. Â Well-known for his firm handshake, Barrett was the man who hired Hall of Fame basketball coach Jack Hartman.He later spearheaded fundraising campaigns for KSU Stadium, the athletic dormitory, synthetic turf on the football stadium, the R.V. Christian Track and Field Complex, the indoor football facility, the Academic Learning Center, Colbert Hills Golf Course, and the new baseball stadium.Barrett, who is known as “Mr. K-State” has received many awards for his many accomplishments which include induction into The Kansas State University Hall of Fame and The Kansas Sports Hall of fame in 1996. “Barrett’s K-State jersey, number 22, was retired in 2005 and hangs in Bramlage Coliseum. Outside of Bramlage Coliseum, there is a Bronze Statue of him honoring “Mr. K-State.”.Â In 2014 Barrett was honored by The Blue Key Honor Society with the Outstanding Alumni Award.Dort Clark – WHS Class of 1935Clark was born in Wellington October 1, 1917, and was involved in theater and glee club while attending WHS.

Submitted by Saint Martin’s University Saint Martin’s University introduces minors in French and physics for the academic year 2015-2016.These minors were approved by the University’s Board of Trustees and the Northwest Commission of Colleges and Universities. They bring the total number of minors offered at Saint Martin’s to 28.The French minor emerged from growing student interest over the years. In the past, students had to design their own study of French, typically through directed study courses; now, students can earn the French minor, which is 21 credits and includes courses such as French Literature and French Cinema. In addition, students can count their study abroad in a French-speaking country towards the minor.“Language in general is critical to students’ understanding,” says Kathleen McKain, professor of French and director of the minor. “People talk about global awareness and global citizenship but language plays a critical role in understanding the world.”The French minor is interdisciplinary and compels students to think critically about the world. It also contributes to students’ human development—as students struggle to learn a language, they gain a greater sense of empathy for people who are learning English. The French minor complements virtually any area of study; it increases students’ cultural awareness and makes them more competitive in the job market.The physics minor stemmed from the growing number of upper-division physics classes offered by the university. Stephen Parker and John Weiss, professors of physics, began the application process for the minor a year ago, presenting their idea to the faculty, the administration and the Saint Martin’s University Board of Trustees.The physics minor consists of 34 credits, including a 2-credit capstone project that allows students to explore an area of interest to them. Although the physics minor is especially useful for mechanical engineering students, it isn’t just for engineers. A wide variety of students can benefit from the problem-solving skills that are central to physics.“Physics isn’t just useful knowledge,” explains Weiss. “It’s a way of approaching problems.” Physics challenges students to think outside the box. Rather than plugging in numbers to solve a problem, students must take the ideas and concepts learned in class and develop their own solutions. Facebook0Tweet0Pin0
FREEHOLD – A short walk down a hallway and through an entrance inside the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office public safety center in Freehold leads to the 911 communications center, a large room filled with computer and video screens. “But they want that,” Golden said. “That’s that generation. They grew up multitasking on smart phones.” Dispatchers work behind desks with six screens each, ready to receive a call that might involve a life-or-death emergency happening somewhere in Monmouth County at any hour of the day. Thanks to an internet-based application from technology company RapidSOS, first responders are getting more accurate information about the location where those calls are being made. “But now, you’re going to have to serialize and retain all of that data and storage and maintain servers,” he said, also noting the related manpower costs involved. At the police academy his office runs, officials provided recruits with iPad tablets, meaning they no longer had paper law books or note pads during their training period. Now, when a call from a cell phone comes in, dispatchers are able to locate the caller on an electronic map pinpointing a location, either indoors or out. The RapidSOS system works with iPhones using iOS 12 or later software and Android phones version 4.0 or higher, according to the sheriff’s office. In such a scenario, the 911 caller would have to give permission for the dispatcher, through a text message, to use the caller’s phone camera to view the scene. Golden’s office is in the middle of testing the technology and expects to be able to deploy it “by the end of this year, beginning of next year,” he said. 911 dispatchers like Ross Martin agree. From the safety of their vehicles, officers can check law enforcement data bases to see if someone has an active warrant or is on a terrorist watch list, among other things. “We would get people that would drive by accidents or be in a town that they’re not familiar or a shopping mall they’re not familiar with,” he said. “We would be able to ping the phone, but not to an exact location. And so, every day we would see those types of calls come into the center.” Toward the end of 2018, the sheriff’s office announced it was using RapidSOS, which grabs the GPS information from cell phones to pinpoint caller locations. Other law enforcement agencies around the country use it as well, a way to speed up response times and save lives. The sheriff’s office, responsible for dispatch services for about 150 agencies in the county, was the first in New Jersey to implement the technology. Yet for law enforcement agencies, staying current with technology has become a part of the job, along with finding the money to pay for it. RapidSOS is just one way the sheriff’s office – and the larger law enforcement community around the country – is using technology to do its job. On the same day Golden was showing how the system works, members of his department were outside the building working with a drone. The Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office Public Safety Center in Freehold. Photo courtesy MCSO “You’re talking about a state-of-the-art 911 facility, despite the lack of funding from the state of New Jersey now for over 10 years,” Golden said. “We’re at the mercy of the state with the 911 infrastructure.” Red Bank Police Chief Darren McConnell recalled that when he started out in law enforcement in the late 1980s, squad car radios were the latest technology. Asked about Big Brother concerns, Golden said, “We always keep that in mind. That’s why the policy and procedures have to be such that we address those issues before we roll out a technology like that.” 911 calls from landline phones still show the address associated with the landline, but cell phones, used in 80 percent of all service calls the county facility received last year, do not. He was referring to how the state has diverted money coming from fees cellphone users pay on their monthly bills that should be going to 911 facilities. It’s an issue Golden has raised in the past. As a result, he turned to the private sector, like RapidSOS, to fill those gaps. Golden pointed to the value of shared service agreements that his office has with other first responder agencies in the county to provide their dispatch services. He said Middletown, one of the partner agencies with his office, wound up saving almost $1 million a year by having the county handle that critical function. “In the traditional 911 system in New Jersey, we don’t have an accurate location,” for calls from a cell phone, Sheriff Shaun Golden said. “We have cell tower locations,” meaning when a 911 call came in from a cell phone, the best “address” officials would get was a geographic radius from the cell tower transmitting the call. And if a caller was driving and/or unfamiliar with the area, location information was even more difficult to pinpoint. By Philip Sean Curran In 2014 the county opened the public safety center, a 45,000-square-foot facility, at a building cost of $23.2 million. At the facility the county provides dispatch services for half the police departments in Monmouth and other agencies, processing some 780,000 calls in 2018, of which roughly 200,000 were 911 calls. “You don’t know what you’re going to get every day, you don’t know what you’re going to get from one call to another,” he said. “So this makes it easier for us as dispatchers.” “I think the challenge is for the smaller departments to keep up with it,” said John G. Comiskey, a professor of criminal justice at Monmouth University. “Monmouth County is the exception. And I think part of it is because of the money. They’re (the) 38th most wealthy county. And I think you get a similar size town in Alabama, they wouldn’t have the money to do some of those things.” In recent years, there was a push to have law enforcement wear body cameras. The devices are not that expensive, said Comiskey, a former New York City police officer. “It is a different generation, so the officers that are newer grew up that way, grew up on computers and technology,” he said. “Whereas the ones from my generation or before my generation did not. So there was more of a learning curve.” “It’s the technology that really gives you the economies of scale and efficiency,” he said. “Now we have cameras in our cars, we have laptops in our cars,” he said. “We can look up anything, practically, at our fingertips real time.” While a comparison of response times before and after RapidSOS went into effect was not available, Golden said the system has helped “tremendously.” So where does Golden’s office go next for technology? “The next tech step is looking at streaming video and photographs from scenes into the dispatcher, so the dispatcher can then get an accurate picture of what’s going on,” he said. “That’s where technology is going.”
