The Air Force recently awarded an energy savings performance contract (ESPC) to upgrade exterior lighting at Laughlin AFB, Texas, under an Energy Department program intended for small-scale energy conservation measures that can be installed in six months or less.The contract represents the first awarded by a DOD activity under the ESPC ENABLE program, reported Air Force Civil Engineer Center Public Affairs.“ESPC ENABLE was designed to help agencies that may have smaller buildings; facilities that are sometimes left out of the normal performance contracts,” said Kurmit Rockwell, ESPC manager at the Energy Department’s Federal Energy Management Program.“On bases with many buildings, some of the smaller facilities are included in larger, traditional ESPCs. The problem is, if you just have a building over here or over there, or don’t want to assess an entire base, it is not cost effective to do a normal ESPC,” Rockwell said.The Laughlin project includes replacing about 1,400 existing exterior high pressure sodium, metal halide and compact fluorescent wall-pack lighting fixtures with high-efficiency light emitting diode models, as well as all associated lighting controls.The new LED fixtures are projected to reduce Laughlin’s annual energy usage by 863,000 kilowatt hours, saving the Air Force an estimated $81,000 per year. Based on those savings, the $910,000 project has a 12-year payback period. The controls will include automatic sunrise and sunset programming based on local longitude and latitude, accurate to-the-minute scheduling and battery backup, according to the story.“We’re very excited about this opportunity,” said Les Martin, ESPC program manager for the Air Force Civil Engineer Center Public Affairs.“Projects like this one provide substantial installation-level savings with a relatively quick project turnaround. We look forward to many more … and, being the first ESPC ENABLE in the DOD is icing on the cake,” Martin said. Dan Cohen AUTHOR

Comment Google Stadia is a play-anywhere streaming game platform… Google announced Stadia at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco in March. The service will let gamers play standard PC games within anything that can browse the web, including a TV, a phone, a tablet and of course a PC. The games are powered by Google’s high-performance computers, which then stream the images to the web browser in a similar way Netflix streams videos. Gamers play using a controller Google designed, which connects through Wi-Fi to Stadia’s systems. Google says the service is designed as a way for people to play and watch gaming together.”Our ambition is far beyond a single game,” Google’s Phil Harrison said at GDC in March. Instead, the company sees the opportunity to give players “instant access” to a game by clicking a link.Originally published June 3, 10:03 a.m. PT.Update, 10:23 a.m.: Adds more background on Google Stadia.

Kolkata: The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has submitted its report to the Alipore Court on Wednesday in connection with the carcass meat row, highlighting that the central laboratory has stated that most of the samples were unfit for testing.CID had sent samples of the carcass meat to the laboratory for testing a few months ago. After going through the samples, the laboratory authorities clearly wrote to the investigating agency, that “the meat is unfit for carrying out test and the stale samples did not even look edible.” Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsSources said that the CID has highlighted the findings of the laboratory in its report and stated that the samples of the meat were not fit for testing. Later, an officer raised the question “how can the meat, which is unfit for test, be treated as fit for human consumption?”It may be recalled that it was April 19 when the carcass meat case came to light, when local people beat up two youths and handed them over to the police after they were caught chopping off flesh from dead animals dumped in Budge Budge dump yard. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedA case was initiated with Budge Budge police station. Later, CID took up the case and initiated a probe in this connection.Five persons who were arrested in this connection, pleaded for bail before the court on Wednesday. But their pleas were rejected and they were remanded in judicial custody. It may be recalled that the state government has set up a high powered committee to evolve a foolproof mechanism for bringing an end to the menace of selling carcass meat. The committee is headed by Chief Secretary Malay De and Home Secretary Atri Bhattacharya, while Commissioner of Kolkata Police Rajeev Kumar, Additional Chief Secretary of Panchayat and Rural Development department and Principal Secretaries of Health department, Urban Development and Municipal Affairs department, Food and Supplies department and Animal Resources Development (ARD) department are members of the committee.After its first meeting, the committee had recommended allowing police, health department officials and civic bodies to carry out raids, to ensure that no stale food and carcass meat is sold at any place.
