City eyeing way for water users to manage costs
November 23, 2014
It is a genuine challenge for Evansville water customers to make it very long without having a water-line break. It happens often, and seemingly too often on the homeowner’s side of the meter. If it is on the government side of the meter, it is the city’s responsibility. That rarely seems to happen. More often, it is on the resident’s side of the meter and therefore it’s the resident’s responsibility to pay for the break.

Sea State Determination from Ship-Based Geodetic GPS
November 01, 2014
FULL TEXT ABSTRACT Ocean waves have a profound impact on navigation, offshore operations, recreation, safety, and the economic vitality of a nation's maritime and coastal communities. This study demonstrates that ships equipped with geodetic GPS and a radar gauge can provide accurate estimates of sea state. The Research Vessel (R/V) Kilo Moana recorded 1-Hz data for the entire period of a 10-day cruise around the Hawaiian Islands. Solving for precise kinematic positions for the ship and combining these solutions with the ranges from the ship to the sea surface provided by the radar gauge, it was possible to retrieve 1-Hz estimates of the sea surface elevation along the cruise track. Converting these into estimates of significant wave height, strong agreement was found with wave buoy measurements and hindcast wave data.

Decision-making in a crisis: What every leader needs to know
January 01, 1970
Introduction Managing is a constant job. It's never done. There is no sense of completion, and managers just move from one crisis to another solving problems and putting out fires. Henry Mintzberg argues that managers work at an unrelenting pace; their activities are typically characterized by brevity, variety, fragmentation and discontinuity, and they are strongly oriented to action. Managers need to be able to constantly switch from highly complex tasks to incredibly mundane ones on a moment-by-moment basis. Making decisions is a large part of a manager's job since he or she is often the one with the final say. Pulling the trigger on a new project or addressing malfunctioning products are examples of daily decisions for managers that have far-reaching consequences for employees, stakeholders, and organizations.
