UVU’s Dehlin Qualifies For Utah State Amateur Championship

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailSOUTH JORDAN, Utah-Last Thursday, Utah Valley University women’s golfer Carly Dehlin became just the third women to ever qualify for the Utah State Amateur after carding a six-over-par 78, finishing 10th at Glenmoor Golf Course.Dehlin has joined BYU women’s golfer Naomi Soifua and former Oklahoma State golfer, and Highland native, Annie Thurman, as the only women in state history to accomplish this feat.Dehlin, a senior to be out of Draper, Utah and a former Alta High School competitor, got off to a solid start by sinking a birdie on the first hole of the day.After bogies on holes two and seven, she made a birdie on eight to pull even. Dehlin was able to successfully combat extremely windy conditions on the back nine to finish six over par and stay above the cut line to earn a spot in the championship.Dehlin has excelled in the spotlight numerous times. This past season, she finished in the top 25 of all but two of the Wolverines’ competitions and broke numerous records in the process.At the (Montana State) Bobcat Spring Invitational, she shot the lowest round in program history with a 67 and won the Grand Canyon Invitational last February, which was her first collegiate win.The amateur championship will run June 11-16 at the Oak Ridge Country Club of Farmington.

In high tech Britain, new homes still being built with ultra-slow broadband

first_imgHome » News » Land & New Homes » In high tech Britain, new homes still being built with ultra-slow broadband previous nextProducts & ServicesIn high tech Britain, new homes still being built with ultra-slow broadbandOne in five new-builds only has access to slowest technology, according to survey by Broadband Genie.Richard Reed28th September 202001,400 Views A “significant” number of new homes are still being build with internet access that is “barely fit for purpose”, according to a broadband comparison site.Broadband Genie examined 3,044 postcodes for new-build properties registered between July 2019 and April 2020 to see what kind of fixed-line broadband was available.Traditional ADSL broadband is slow by modern standards, with an average speed in the region of just 10Mb per second.Broadband Genie says almost everyone should now be getting access to FTTC fibre – where high speed fibre runs to the roadside cabinet, but the connection to the house is still copper phone wires – with average speeds of roughly 65Mb.New technologyNew technology such as tweaks the signal through the copper wires and is capable of offering speeds of up to 300Mb, though it is only available to homes within roughly 500 metres of cabinet.Traditionally, cable companies such as Virgin Media have also used fibre technology, but the connection to the home was via co-axial cable rather than phone wires, offering speeds of up to 350Mb.The holy grail is fibre direct to the home – known as FTTH or FTTP – which in theory can offer speeds of 1Gb per second.The Broadband Genie survey found that only just over half (57%) of new-build homes were getting FTTP, while only 8% were connected to Virgin Media.Slowest technologyEven worse, roughly one in five new-build homes (19%) were restricted to ADSL, the oldest and slowest technology of all.The government is planning to put new regulations in place next year which will mean that developers are legally required to install high-quality digital infrastructure from the outset and ensure broadband companies are on board before the first brick is laid.However the move is too late for the many thousands of new-build home-owners and businesses that could have benefited had such measures being introduced sooner.Liam McAvoy, senior director of business development at full-fibre ISP Hyperoptic, said: “It is unacceptable that one five new build homes is being built without access to full fibre.“It makes no sense to build a property and only provide the building with access to yesterday’s technology that isn’t future-proofed and can’t scale with bandwidth demands.“Full-fibre connectivity should now be an essential component of the build process. It’s time that the industry gets up to speed on having full fibre installed in a new build, from day one.”broadband speed superfast broadband fibre-based broadband September 28, 2020Richard ReedWhat’s your opinion?

Press release: Construction starts on North East flood scheme

first_imgContractor Balfour Beatty is carrying out flood protection work across Monkton and Hebburn with work expected to be complete by the end of the year. It will protect around 100 homes and businesses from surface water flooding.To minimise disruption, work that needs to take place close to local schools will be done during the school summer holidays, with construction in areas less affected by travel to and from school being completed in the autumn.The main construction work follows a project in March this year to open up a section of the Bede Burn running underground – known as ‘daylighting’ – to the rear of Toner Avenue School. This was part of the ‘Living Waterways’ scheme to restore the burn and create a green space for the community to enjoy.The Monkton Flood Alleviation Scheme is being delivered by South Tyneside Council and its partners at the Environment Agency and Tyne Rivers Trust.Main engineering workTom Pitman, Project Manager for the Environment Agency and South Tyneside Council, said: I’m delighted to see the construction phase of this project get underway. The work done earlier this year behind Toner Avenue School has created a wonderful open space, which the community will be able to enjoy once the main flood alleviation works have been completed. We would ask residents to bear with us during this short term disruption. Once complete, around 100 properties are going to reap the benefits of this scheme, with not only reduced flood risk but enhancements to the local environment too. The work in the Spring to open up the Bede Burn and create a green space was really well received by the community and we’re pleased it will be a great facility for them to use in the future. We’re now on to the main engineering work which will include improved drainage, swales to collect surface water run-off and an attenuation basin which is designed to collect water and slowly release it into the Bede Burn. While there will inevitably be some disruption while we complete this work, we are working hard to keep it to a minimum. In particular the bulk of the work we need to do near to schools will be done during the school summer holidays. ‘Delighted’ construction is underwayCouncillor Nancy Maxwell, Lead Member for Area Management and Community Safety, added: The scheme involves managing surface water where problems have been identified around the Monkton Burn, Lukes Lane Estate and Leam Lane area, Mill Lane, Lilac Walk/College Road, Devon Road, Campbell Park Road/ Thirlmere Court and Mountbatten Avenue areas.The project will have wider social and environmental benefits, encouraging local people and children to get involved in creating valuable new habitat.The project is largely funded by the Environment Agency, as well as a contribution from the local levy – which is money raised by local authorities for flood projects.Motorists and pedestrians are advised there will be some diversions. The latest information on the scheme – including details of timescales and the required traffic management – can be found at the Monkton Flood Alleviation Scheme websitelast_img read more
