Get the Balance Right. Today work goes on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and is about acceleration and access. Workers need balance more than ever. This paper, written for career counselors, defines balance as encompassing emotional, spiritual, physical, and…. Sanfilippo, S. Coil-current effect in Kibble balances : analysis, measurement, and optimization. The Kibble balance is expected to become an important instrument in the near future for realizing the unit of mass, the kilogram, in the revised international system of units SI.
The Kibble balance assumes an equality of two magnetic profiles measured in the weighing and velocity phases. A recent study conducted in the Kibble balance group at the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures BIPM showed that the coil current could significantly affect the magnetic profile, which should be carefully taken into account in the Kibble balance experiment. This paper gives a deeper understanding and investigation of the effect, and discusses the magnetic profile change due to the coil current, for both the classical two-mode and the one-mode Kibble balances.
The coil current effect has been theoretically and experimentally investigated based on a typical magnet design with an air gap. One important conclusion found in the one-mode Kibble balance is that the magnetic profile change measured in the velocity phase is twice the change in the weighing phase.
A compensation suggestion, to minimize the profile change due to the coil current in a BIPM-type magnet, is presented. Reconceptualizing Balance : Attributes associated with balance performance. Thomas, Julia C. Balance tests are commonly used to screen for impairments that put older adults at risk for falls. Other measures included: self-efficacy, pain, depression, executive function, vision, sensory loss, reaction time, kyphosis, leg range of motion, trunk extensor muscle endurance, leg strength and leg velocity at peak power.
After adjusting for age and gender, attributes significantly associated with balance performance were falls self-efficacy, trunk extensor muscle endurance, sensory loss, and leg velocity at peak power. FICSIT-4 balance performance is associated with a number of behavioral and physiologic attributes, many of which are amenable to rehabilitative treatment. Our findings support a consideration of balance as multidimensional activity as proposed by the current International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health ICF model.

A new magnet design for future Kibble balances. The goal of the proposed magnet system is to minimize the coil-current effect and to optimize the shielding at the same time.
In the proposed design, a permanent magnet system with two gaps, each housing a coil, is employed to minimize the coil current effect, by reducing the linear coil-current dependence reported for the single air gap design by at least one order of magnitude. Both air gaps of the magnet are completely surrounded by high-permeability material, and hence the coils are shielded from outside magnetic fields and no magnetic field leaks outside of the magnet system.
An example of the new magnet system is given and the analysis shows that the magnetic field in the air gap can be optimized to meet the requirement to be used in Kibble balances. Regard sur les lazarets en terre canadienne. Tsiouli, Elina; Alexopoulos, Evangelos C. Modelisation de la diffusion sur les surfaces metalliques: De l'adatome aux processus de croissance. Nos calculs, plus complets et dans un formalisme mieux adapte a ce genre de probleme, predisent correctement la forme d'equilibre, qui est en fait due a un relachement different du stress de surface aux deux types de marches qui forment les cotes des i lots.
Notre valeur pour la barriere est aussi fortement diminuee lorsqu'on relaxe les forces sur les atomes de la surface, amenant le resultat theorique beaucoup plus pres de la valeur experimentale. Nos calculs pour le cuivre demontre en effet que la diffusion de petits i lots pendant la croissance ne peut pas etre negligee dans ce cas, mettant en doute la valeur des interpretations des mesures experimentales. Abstract shortened by UMI. Balance and flexibility. The 'work-life balance ' and flexible working are currently key buzz terms in the NHS.
Those looking for more information on these topics should visit Flexibility at www. We present results for the transfer spectra, the skewness and flatness factors of the velocity components, the PDF's of the angle between the vorticity and the eigenvectors of the rate of strain, and that between the vorticity and the vorticity stretching tensor. We further observe that in all the numerical measurements, the trend was for the LES field to be more gaussian than the fDNS field. Future research on this point is planned.
Identifying Balance in a Balanced Scorecard System. In recent years, strategic management concepts seem to be gaining greater attention from the academicians and the practitioner's alike. Balanced Scorecard BSC concept is one such management concepts that has spread in worldwide business and consulting communities.
The BSC translates mission and vision statements into a comprehensive set of…. Implicit LES using adaptive filtering. In implicit large eddy simulations ILES numerical dissipation prevents buildup of small scale energy in a manner similar to the explicit subgrid scale SGS models. If spectral methods are used the numerical dissipation is negligible but it can be introduced by applying a low-pass filter in the physical space, resulting in an effective ILES.
In the present work we provide a comprehensive analysis of the numerical dissipation produced by different filtering operations in a turbulent channel flow simulated using a non-dissipative, pseudo-spectral Navier-Stokes solver. The amount of numerical dissipation imparted by filtering can be easily adjusted by changing how often a filter is applied.
We show that when the additional numerical dissipation is close to the subgrid-scale SGS dissipation of an explicit LES the overall accuracy of ILES is also comparable, indicating that periodic filtering can replace explicit SGS models. A new method is proposed, which does not require any prior knowledge of a flow, to determine the filtering period adaptively. Once an optimal filtering period is found, the accuracy of ILES is significantly improved at low implementation complexity and computational cost.
The method is general, performing well for different Reynolds numbers, grid resolutions, and filter shapes. Chemical Equation Balancing. Reviews mathematical techniques for solving systems of homogeneous linear equations and demonstrates that the algebraic method of balancing chemical equations is a matter of solving a system of homogeneous linear equations. Judicial Checks and Balances. In the Anglo-American constitutional tradition, judicial checks and balances are often seen as crucial guarantees of freedom.
Hayek distinguishes two ways in which the judiciary provides such checks and balances : judicial independence and constitutional review. We create a new database of constitutional rules in 71 countries that reflect these…. A Balance of Power? The booming economy of the Pacific Northwest region promotes the dilemma of balancing the need for increased electrical power with the desire to maintain that region's unspoiled natural environment. Pertinent factors discussed within the balance equation are population trends, economic considerations, industrial power requirements, and….
A Smartphone Inertial Balance. In order to measure the mass of an object in the absence of gravity, one useful tool for many decades has been the inertial balance. One of the simplest forms of inertial balance is made by two mass holders or pans joined together with two stiff metal plates, which act as springs. Active balance system and vibration balanced machine. White, Maurice A. Inventor ; Peterson, Allen A. An active balance system is provided for counterbalancing vibrations of an axially reciprocating machine.
The balance system includes a support member, a flexure assembly, a counterbalance mass, and a linear motor or an actuator. The support member is configured for attachment to the machine. The flexure assembly includes at least one flat spring having connections along a central portion and an outer peripheral portion. One of the central portion and the outer peripheral portion is fixedly mounted to the support member.
The counterbalance mass is fixedly carried by the flexure assembly along another of the central portion and the outer peripheral portion. The linear motor has one of a stator and a mover fixedly mounted to the support member and another of the stator and the mover fixedly mounted to the counterbalance mass.
The linear motor is operative to axially reciprocate the counterbalance mass. Load Balancing Scientific Applications. The largest supercomputers have millions of independent processors, and concurrency levels are rapidly increasing. For ideal efficiency, developers of the simulations that run on these machines must ensure that computational work is evenly balanced among processors.
Assigning work evenly is challenging because many large modern parallel codes simulate behavior of physical systems that evolve over time, and their workloads change over time. To address load imbalance, many large-scale parallel applications use dynamic load balance algorithms to redistribute work evenly.
The research objective of this dissertation is to develop methods to decide when and how to load balance the application, and to balance it effectively and affordably. We measure and evaluate the computational load of the application, and develop strategies to decide when and how to correct the imbalance. Depending on the simulation, a fast, local load balance algorithm may be suitable, or a more sophisticated and expensive algorithm may be required.
We developed a model for comparison of load balance algorithms for a specific state of the simulation that enables the selection of a balancing algorithm that will minimize overall runtime.
Consideration of Dynamical Balances. The quasi- balance of extra-tropical tropospheric dynamics is a fundamental aspect of nature. If an atmospheric analysis does not reflect such balance sufficiently well, the subsequent forecast will exhibit unrealistic behavior associated with spurious fast-propagating gravity waves.
Even if these eventually damp, they can create poor background fields for a subsequent analysis or interact with moist physics to create spurious precipitation. The nature of this problem will be described along with the reasons for atmospheric balance and techniques for mitigating imbalances.
Attention will be focused on fundamental issues rather than on recipes for various techniques. Balance Evaluation Systems. NeuroCom's Balance Master is a system to assess and then retrain patients with balance and mobility problems and is used in several medical centers. NeuroCom received assistance in research and funding from NASA, and incorporated technology from testing mechanisms for astronauts after shuttle flights. The EquiTest and Balance Master Systems are computerized posturography machines that measure patient responses to movement of a platform on which the subject is standing or sitting, then provide assessments of the patient's postural alignment and stability.
Moreover, pressure dilatation makes a significant contribution to the internal energy budget at Mach 3 and higher. The balance between these terms is critical to determining the temperature and so molecular viscosity from the internal energy equation and so, in LES of these flows, it is essential to use accurate SGS models for the viscous dissipation and the pressure dilatation.
In this talk, we present LES results for supersonic channel flow, using SGS models for these terms that are based on the resolved-scale dilatation, an inverse timescale, and SGS momentum fluxes, which intrinsically represent this Mach number effect. Is there a way I can fix it? First systemd destroys home-partition security and now this. Does no one care about security anymore? What was the point of getting rid of snap then.
Hi LinuxMint, Success!!!!! I am very happy with the LinuxMint version. Works great. God bless you. I initially thought to delay, but printed off the steps and headed into upgrade waters. This is long and complex. Point 4. I am somewhat concerned about an older relative — less tech savvy and on a far, far slower connection.
Getting them to just go to Whew — it just finished as I was typing this on my other laptop. And you just look at that — seems fine. It will take a while to test every application, but a fantastic upgrade as we have grown accustomed to with Mint!
Hello I got this error when updating, what should I do? I have a system in Russian, so everything is written in Russian, sorry. It turns out to be a metadata indexer. Whoever wrote this did not think the naming through.
Gave me a hell of a fright. Got around that from a text console with killall xscreensaver. A rescue boot stick, chroot and grub-install, update-grub fixed that, which was a googled solution. Back in the Desktop xfce4 tap-to-click was disabled, reenabled that. Works for me. Mint Team: Outstanding work from your side. This is, from my point of view, the most smoothest upgrade ever. Upgrade went smoothly but one irritation.
Why is necessary for upgrade to remove Additional Repositories? In my case these were Skype and Vivaldi. I was able to fix this for Skype by using Synaptic to remove skypeforlinux but not configuration and then installing it. Hello there! Mintupgrade check has stated that an issue pevents Linux mint 20 to use encrypted swap and that it will be disabled. Will that get restored after mintupgrade check is completed? I applied a system snapshot and it is encrypted again.
So, this is me not panicking. Made system image backup, timeshift backup, separate home-dir backup. Performed the upgrade according to instructions. Went well. But after rebooting, I get a black screen with a blinking cursor in the top left. So I used command line timeshift to restore the last snapshot. It seems the boot completes fine, but no X-Server starts up. As I said, the cursor blinks top left on the empty text-mode screen.
I can switch with ALT-F1 and log in as root and get to the shell. But cannot start the xserver there or do anything meaningful. The password issue went away after the second reboot… no idea what that was. I had to resort to a normal installation. May I suggest mintupgrade checks for needed space and possible even helps delete some cruft during the process.
Thanks for Mint! Been using it since pretty much the beginning. Everything went fine and smoothly with all of my machines so far, with one still taking its time the amount and size of applications installed from system repositories is of course what eventually defines the complete duration…. Perhaps that could be something worth adding to the upgrade tutorial?
Follow the link from this announcement to find the tutorial. I read the upgrade instructions, what a lot of futzing around, Backup this Restore that, do another backup, reboot, restore, reboot again. Getting the message: Another instance of Timeshift is creating a snapshot. Please wait a few minutes and try again. Check your timeshift settings, disable planned snapshots. Kill all timeshift processes eventually if necessary. Mirror sync in progress? Need to get After this operation, kB of additional disk space will be used.
Well done to all involved! Updated my Ryzen desktop in less than an hour, and my Celeron N laptop took much longer , both with no issues at all. The upgrade has seemed to enhance the look of the display. Everything looks so much smoother and polished. Thanks again for your work. Easy update. Great OS. Not sure if I am being sarcastic, but: Thanks for performing the Gimp 2. With all the additional snaps woes, this sounds to me as if for the next Mint upgrade you should consider a script to crossgrade from Mint 20 to LMDE5.
Desktop system software versions being for a full year even more outdated than on the most-notorious server system… tsk, tsk, tsk. LTS or not, this is embarrassing. At least this is a positive effect which the upgrade managed to achieve for the moment. Maybe I was secretly hoping something might fail, and I would have to reinstall the OS from scratch then, but all went well, and now I am a questionably-proud Mint 20 user and at least wish to express my respect for the problem-free upgrade.
Use apt—fix-broken install Does not help. Install is broken. Hello Clem and Team! Everything went fine, but linuxmint theme for grub was gone. Many files were missing. I copied them from my personal notebook and I updated grub and Mint theme for grub is alive again. Thank you all for this release. A lilltle comment, I think that the icon theme should be updated. They feel quite old.
Thank you all again. I have a problem with the download from the new version of Linux Mint. There is one package which is not able to delete and I think this will not be the only one. And to make the update to the new version, how does it work that the systems runs on the new system? I have disabled all nonstandard PPA as per upgrade manual I tried apt get remove python-gi Then it complains about monodoc-http, mono-apache-server4 and mono-fastcgi-server4, so I tried apt remove mono-xsp4 mono-apache-server4 mono-fastcgi-server4.
Followed all the instructions and after a grub rescue prompt at system start i finally decided to give up on Linux all together, i will always be a windows user.
LOL, that figures, typical windoze user. My antique Dell laptop upgraded from My desktop upgrade had an issue Ryzen with Raven graphics. The splash screen was OK but the desktop was torn up. Is nomodeset considered a permanent fix or will some future update resolve the issue?
Remv blueberry [1. And here are my the foreigner PPA I use I have previously disabled them and used the downgrade foreigner package as recommended, but with no luck. Check out the updated article to upgrade. I know my system is in spanish, the message says: The file has an unexpected size ! The sync is in progress?? Before the migration I have tried to initiate a discussion about this wifi driver and the new kernels 5.
The new package of rtlau-dkms: 4. But after activating this driver, which is working, the mintReport tool proposes to install the rtlau-dkms module…. The system reports brings this info from the driver manager, which itself gets it from ubuntu-drivers, which itself gets it from the Ubuntu package itself. Thanks Clem for your so quick answer. Could you please validate a path for this driver, using only one git repository if no hopes for a dkms stable driver?
Thanks in advance. I repeated the installation, but same issues — went back to Mint I have noticed one annoying difference after installing Mint Now, for some reason, when I choose to shut the system down the mentioned disk is waking up before final power off. That obviously shortens disk life spawn and makes shutting down 2 times longer.
It was working fine under Any idea how to deal with it? It worked perfect, thanks a lot! Only had to downgrade Skype and Earth Google. Souhaitez-vous continuer? Suppression de blueberry 1. Luckily I have a good quality SSD, so the update went through without any freezing.
It took a while, but everything went through like clockwork. Mint-Y-Orange is my favourite and I was pleased that this is the default now. Thanks for all the help you give everyone, Clem.
Hi, could you please put a copy of your post at the begining of the entry, I just found it by chance… This post is not really intended for releasing…. Followed the directions for upgrading from 19 to 20, and after rebooting the bootup process hung. Had to go in with a rescue disc to retrieve the data the install from scratch.
How much did you contribute to this project? Did you pay anything? Do you have a service agreement that says such and such? Clem is doing fantastic work and even companies like Microsoft fail to implement clean updates, even smaller ones fail all the time on Win. So please, show a little more respect. Clem even takes the trouble to read this posts and help out.
Try to get support for your paid Windows license. Before upgrading I downloaded the Mint 20 ISO file and I did make a backup using Timeshift in case something went wrong and I had to start from scratch. Started the upgrade following the procedure step by step and ended up with a perfect working Linux Mint 20 Cinnamon OS. Did the upgrade on 6 computers and all are running like clockwork. Never had problems with upgrading mint before. Mint does contain timeshift to make up for it.
So mint is still gold. After the upgrade, if I remove the foreign package libffi6, I get a black screen after rebooting and logging in. Just did the same upgrade from Took twice as long because of the CPU differences, but hey. Will my 32bit wine libraries be available in Linux Mint 20? Also when doing the simulated mintupgrade i get a huuuuuuuge list with all kinds of files. There will be no GUI upgrade path.
