As part of the monitoring solution for enabling EU GDP (Good Distribution Practice) compliance, it is capable of tracking environmental conditions for a variety of temperature-sensitive goods including pharmaceutical products.Accuracy, compliance and auditability of the measurements are guaranteed by combining Sensirion’s calibrated temperature sensors with state-of-the-art blockchain technology. Upon receipt of a package, the receiver downloads the cryptographically signed measurement data from the temperature logger and the signed metadata such as the individual Sensirion serial number for end-to-end traceability. All data is wirelessly transmitted and checked by shipment-specific “smart contracts” on the blockchain, a decentralized digital ledger used to immutably store and verify its compliance with the conditions previously agreed to by the sender and receiver, allowing them to either release the product or arrange corrective or preventative actions.Sensirion’s STS3x products come in a compact form factor of 2.5 x 2.5 x 0.9 mm3 and are suitable for many battery-operated IoT applications, thanks to the low power consumption and wide supply voltage range of 2.15-5.5 V. The sensors are suitable in particular for products that cannot compromise on accuracy and reliability. The sensors are fully calibrated, linearized and supply voltage-compensated, making a correction or calibration by the user unnecessary. As with all sensors by Sensirion, the STS3x is based on the unique CMOSens Technology, which integrates the sensing element and read-out electronics onto a single chip, enabling high production volume at an exceptional price/performance ratio.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components

VANCOUVER – The developer of a floating liquefied natural gas export facility proposed for Vancouver Island says it has a deal with a Korean shipbuilder for the design of two large at-shore hulls.Steelhead LNG and partner Huu-ay-aht First Nations say the agreement was signed at the Gastech Conference in Barcelona with Hyundai Heavy Industries to engineer and design the equipment for the Kwispaa LNG Project.The LNG export project, which features floating production and storage units, is proposed to be built at Sarita Bay off land owned by the Huu-ay-aht First Nations, with a final investment decision scheduled for 2020 and the first 12-million-tonnes-per-year phase to be operational in 2024.Three companies have been invited to bid to engineer and construct the project’s topsides, marine facilities, pre-treatment and onshore plant facilities.The design work under both contracts is expected to start next year.The hulls are expected to cost about US$500 million to build. Each is to be 340 metres long and 60 metres wide and feature five individual tanks that provide 280,000 cubic metres of LNG storage.
San Francisco: Facebook, busy developing more private and encrypted communication across its apps, has lost two of its top executives — Chief Product Officer Chris Cox and WhatsApp Vice President Chris Daniels, CEO Mark Zuckerberg has announced. Embroiled in data privacy scandals amid the unabated spread of fake news on its platform, Facebook has lately seen several high-profile exits, including Jan Koum and Brian Acton, co-founders of WhatsApp. Also Read – Ensure strict implementation on ban of import of e-cigarettes: revenue to Customs”Cox and I have worked closely together to build our products for more than a decade and I will always appreciate his deep empathy for the people using our services and the uplifting spirit he brings to everything he does,” Zuckerberg said in a blog post late Thursday. In a separate Facebook post, Cox said Facebook is turning a new page in its product direction, focused on an encrypted, interoperable, messaging network. “It’s a product vision attuned to the subject matter of today: a modern communications platform that balances expression, safety, security, and privacy. “This will be a big project and we will need leaders who are excited to see the new direction through,” wrote Cox, who was one of the first 15 engineers Facebook hired 13 years back.
The Ohio State men’s hockey team ended its weekend series with No. 6 Western Michigan on a high note with a 6-3 victory Saturday night. The Buckeyes earned four points on the weekend after tying the Broncos, 1-1, in the first game of the series on Friday. OSU (13-12-7, 12-7-5-1 CCHA) now sits tied with Ferris State for fourth place in the CCHA standings with only two weekends left in the regular season. A fourth place finish will give them a first-round home series in the playoffs on March 8. The Buckeyes scored first in both contests, with freshman forward Tyler Lundey scoring the team’s only regulation goal Friday night and junior forward Alex Szczechura scoring the first of his three goals Saturday early in the first period. Western Michigan (18-8-6, 14-6-4-2 CCHA) tied the game Saturday less than three minutes later as Broncos sophomore forward Justin Kovacs netted his second goal of the season. With 6:26 remaining, Broncos sophomore forward David Killip scored, and Western Michigan took a 2-1 lead into the first intermission. OSU sophomore forward Tanner Fritz scored his seventh goal of the season to tie the game with 8:26 left in the second, but a Western Michigan power-play goal put the Broncos back ahead, 3-2. It would be the final time they would hold the advantage in the game. In the second period, Szczechura scored his second of the game and sophomore forwards Max McCormick and Darik Angeli followed suit to put OSU ahead 5-3. Szczechura then completed his hat trick early in the third period, giving the Buckeyes the win, 6-3. It was the second time this season an OSU player scored three goals in one game, after sophomore forward Ryan Dzingel had a hat trick against Penn State in December. Szczechura has been coming up on Dzingel, OSU’s lead scorer, recently, with nine goals in the last 15 games. OSU’s top line of Szczechura, McCormick and Fritz recorded 11 points on Saturday to lead the Buckeyes. Fritz said the line-up is “clicking” right now. “We’ve had a lot of chemistry,” Fritz said. “I feel like we’re getting the bounces now and we’re really clicking as a line. It’s probably the best time for us to be doing that, going into the playoffs.” Visit www.thelantern.com for the rest of this story. The Buckeye offense has been impressive as of late, producing 28 goals in the team’s last eight games. Getting that kind of offensive production is something the entire team can feed off, Szczechura said. “Once we start scoring, all the boys are cheering for you and everyone has each other’s backs,” Szczechura said. “It just feels really good.” Broncos coach Andy Murray said he was less than pleased with his team and gave OSU full credit on the win. “When you don’t stay humble, you get humbled, and we got humbled tonight,” Murray said. “Ohio State was good tonight and we were not good enough.” Western Michigan earned an extra point in the CCHA standings on Friday night after winning the shootout, 2-1. The game was played tight the entire way, with both teams’ goals scored in the second period. “I thought that game, the two teams competed extremely hard,” said OSU coach Mark Osiecki after the tie. OSU is set to host Michigan Friday night at 6:35 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center in its final home series of the regular season.
OSU junior defenders Liam Doyle (5) and Kyle Culbertson (3) fight for possession of the ball during a game against Kentucky, Oct. 28. at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU and Kentucky tied, 1-1.Credit: Taylor Cameron / Lantern photographerThe penalty kick rolled to his right, but redshirt-senior goalkeeper Alex Ivanov leaned left before stopping, realizing his mistake as the shot found the back of the net.The No. 2 seed Ohio State men’s soccer team (9-7-4) fell, 2-1, to No. 6 seed Indiana (12-3-5) in the semifinals of the Big Ten tournament Friday in College Park, Md., on the back of the late penalty kick.The shot — awarded because of a handball by junior defender Kyle Culbertson with about four minutes left — was served by sophomore midfielder Tanner Thompson.Thompson — a first-team all-Big Ten selection — scored his sixth goal of the season on the play, including his second game winner.Culbertson’s handball came just minutes after the referees appeared to miss a clear handball in Indiana’s box that would have awarded OSU the penalty kick with a chance to take the lead.OSU played from behind in the score for the majority of the game, despite outshooting Indiana by a margin of 9-5 in the first half.However, OSU found itself trailing at the half, 1-0, due to a goal off a free kick by senior defender Patrick Doody midway through the half.“It was important (to score the goal). Ohio State brought a lot of pressure, we didn’t really have much on goal, so it was good to capitalize,” Doody said in an interview with the Big Ten Network after the game.Despite the shot margin, OSU coach John Bluem said he was not satisfied with his team’s first-half performance.“I don’t feel that we’ve played as good as we’re capable of playing yet,” Bluem said in a halftime interview with Big Ten Network.Earlier in the week, Bluem said he felt freshman forward Marcus McCrary could be a weapon in the game because of his speed and the fact that he missed OSU’s first matchup with Indiana, a 2-1 loss on Oct. 12, with an undisclosed injury.“The first time we played them, we didn’t have Marcus McCrary,” the 2014 Big Ten Coach of the Year said Tuesday. “That gives us someone they haven’t seen. They’ve seen him on video, but you know how fast Marcus is, he surprises a lot of people with his quickness and his athleticism, so that may be something we can use to our advantage.”McCrary indeed proved to be the weapon OSU was looking for, as he tied the game midway through the second half with his third goal of the season.The freshman was led with a header from senior midfielder Yianni Sarris at midfield, and then it was off to the races.McCrary beat the entire Indiana defense down the field, scoring with a strong right-footed strike that found the back of the net.Overall, OSU outshot Indiana, 20-12, including a 9-5 edge in shots on target. However, Indiana sophomore goalkeeper Colin Webb made eight saves to hold on for his 12th victory of the season.The Hoosiers advanced to the finals of the Big Ten tournament for the second consecutive season, after defeating Michigan State in the 2013 championship match.Despite the loss, it was not necessarily the end of the road for OSU.Bluem said earlier in the week that he believes — regardless of OSU’s results in the Big Ten tournament — his team will receive a bid to the NCAA tournament.For now, the Buckeyes have nothing to do but sit and wait to learn their fate.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp praised Mohamed Salah after the Egypt international took his Premier League goal to 50 in a 4-3 win over Crystal Palace.Salah’s brace made it 50 in 72 matches – the same as former Reds favourite Fernando Torres, an out-and-out striker – and a record only bettered by Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Andrew Cole and Alan Shearer.And German gaffer Klopp could only sing his praises after enduring a tense ending at Anfield.“Exceptional achievement from a world-class player,” said Klopp via Belfast Telegraph.“Wow, an outstanding number. I heard the names of the other players who got there a bit quicker – Alan Shearer, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Andy Cole – good strikers as well eh?“Maybe he would have scored more and earlier if I hadn’t played him on the right wing so often. My fault.Mo Salah laughs off Sadio Mane incident with a brilliant video Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Mohamed Salah laughed off his little spat with Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mane by posting a brilliant video showing they’ve made up.“But no, not bad. (He has) helped us a lot. It’s a typical win-win situation. He benefits from the style of play, and the boys benefit of course from his scoring desire. It’s cool.”Klopp also praised the character of his players after bouncing back twice to seal the victory.⚽ Mohamed Salah has scored his 50th PL goal (48 Liverpool, 2 Chelsea).Only 3 players in competition history have been quicker in reaching the 50-goal milestone pic.twitter.com/f6JRZPNhWl— Sky Sports Statto (@SkySportsStatto) January 19, 2019
