Not only would their Elo change since “expansion” rank last among modern expansion franchises, they’re also the only team to be in worse shape after 27 games of Year Three than they were when the franchise “began.” Being a team with no past at all is better than being these Sixers.Now, the standard procession of Hinkie Stan counter-arguments. Argument the first: Expansion teams are generally trying to make incremental progress in their first few seasons, which is not necessarily what Hinkie’s Sixers are pursuing. Argument the second: The draft is an imperfect science with bad luck lurking behind every lottery pick, and the lottery itself is based on probabilities as well. When your entire team-building concept relies heavily on risk tolerance, it’s no surprise that busts are likely when the boom doesn’t come. Argument the third: The Only Goal Is Winning A Championship (And Building A Dynasty), and the Sixers remain well-positioned to draft or develop a superstar.We’ll leave those arguments to be settled another day. What this research suggests is that the Sixers have made significantly less progress than their historical analogs (to the extent those exist), and NBA fans looking to watch a decent game of basketball in Philadelphia these last three years would have been better served if the league had dissolved the 76ers and held tryouts.

Silver, of course, denies intervening (which you can hear for yourself on a special episode of Hot Takedown), and that’s practically a co-sign from the man in charge, isn’t it now? A full-on prosecution of Hinkie’s process is justified and overdue. For now, however, we’ll confine ourselves to discussing the shape of Philadelphia’s evolution in the broadest possible sense, comparing its progress during Hinkie’s reign with that of other teams also undergoing such radical, um, rebirths.We looked at this a few ways. First, we used our Elo ratings to find all GMs who took over a below-average team that got worse in the GM’s first year in control — specifically, overseeing an Elo decline of at least 50 points,1The equivalent of a 2-point drop in point spread each game. enough of a drop to pick up teams that needed more than one offseason’s worth of work. We then looked for the Elo gains or losses each made between the start of his second season and the 27-game mark of his third — i.e., where Hinkie is with the Sixers right now.We’re trying to isolate full-on rebuilding jobs: teams that were already bad and were still in demolition mode during Year One but were presumably trying (or at least should have been trying) to lay down some semblance of a foundation after that. We can then judge Philadelphia’s progress against this historical standard. Turns out, Hinkie has ruled over the biggest Elo decline of any GM under those circumstances, ever: Harry Weltman1988New Jersey1412-80-49 Elgin Baylor1987L.A. Clippers1424-21749 Source: John Nash1991Washington1416-63-31 Kiki Vandeweghe2002Denver1469-9065 Stu Jackson1996Vancouver1300-7540 The average GM in that situation saw a 62-point Elo improvement from the beginning of Year Two through 27 games of his third season, and 24 of 32 GMs oversaw some kind of improvement. Hinkie, by contrast, saw a loss of 84 Elo points over the same span — by far the steepest drop on a list littered with some of the most glaring managerial failures in league history. Adding insult to embarrassment: yes, that’s Colangelo up at the top, albeit navigating a very different NBA in 1969.You’ll notice that a few of the GMs on the above list took the reins of an expansion club. Certainly, the 2013-14 76ers featured a roster that could pass for a brand-new NBA franchise. This raises the question: How might the Sixers fare if we arbitrarily (but, let’s be honest, justifiably) assigned them an expansion-level Elo of 1300 before the 2013-14 season and compared their progress to those of the NBA’s other modern expansion teams, going back to the 1976 ABA-NBA merger?

Amy Johnsons pioneering solo Australia flight to be recreated by female pilot

Trailblazer Amy Johnson stunned the world when she became the first woman to fly solo from England to Australia in May 1930.Now a daring British pilot has begun to retrace her route from Croydon to Darwin in a vintage biplane to honour the landmark feat.Amanda Harrison, 46, packed a survival kit with shark repellent and a life boat before setting off from Biggin Hill Airport in Bromley, south London, at 12.05pm today.After overcoming severe childhood dyslexia to become a commercial airline pilot and a recent bout of breast cancer, she hopes her month-long journey across 20 countries will help to inspire women to take up the pursuit across the world.Ms Harrison, from Bromley, is flying in her 1942 de Havilland DH82a Tiger Moth, similar to the open cockpit Gypsy Moth flown by Johnson.

Average 104 tyre life increase reported by Immersive Technologies users

first_imgTyres represent a significant expense in a mining operation and are a powerful area for cost containment, we should all know that. Maximising life increases machine availability and proactively addresses issues like global tyre shortages. Immersive Technologies reports it “has worked with major OEMs and mining operations around the globe to deliver a mean 10.4% increase in mining truck tyre life using Advanced Equipment Simulator based operator training programs.”Amongst many examples, a North American based mining operation worked with Immersive to develop a continuous improvement training program aimed at increasing tyre life using simulation based training.  Results were demonstrated over a five-month period using tyre hours and tyre replacements due to damage as the metrics of interest. The training initiative resulted in a 27% reduction in tyre replacements due to damage as compared to the same time period in the previous year. Globally, Immersive Technologies continuous improvement projects focused on tyre life have resulted in increases in tyre life ranging from 3.3% to 14%. Through simulation operators are trained to identify and correct errors such as brake misuse to optimise tyre life. “Our Advanced Equipment Simulators are the only fully supported solution of their kind in the mining industry. Scheduled system upgrades are part of our service agreements.  The development of these upgrades is driven by evolving mining industry needs, using input provided by customers and equipment manufacturers. This ensures that our customers are able to continually achieve quantifiable improvement in their mining operations in areas such as tyre costs, fuel costs, unscheduled maintenance costs, spotting times, new operator training times and so on.” said Karen Joseph, Product Portfolio Manager at Immersive Technologies.The simulation based training gives equipment operators the skills and knowledge they need to operate in a productive manner while assessing and eliminating behaviours that cause unnecessary tyre wear. Properly trained operators extend tyre life without impacting productivity.SimControl, the software powering all Immersive Technologies Advanced Equipment Simulators performs detailed monitoring of operator behaviours which directly impact tyre wear including operation around spillage, dry steering, aggressive cornering and speeding.Immersive Technologies’ simulation based training solutions provide an assessment tool for managers to determine which tyre wear related operator behaviours are most prevalent in their mining operation and represent the greatest opportunities for cost reduction. The simulation based training solutions provide an assessment tool for managers to determine which tyre wear related operator behaviours are most prevalent in their mining operation and represent the greatest opportunities for cost reduction.“Our simulation based training solutions provide an assessment tool for managers to determine which tyre wear related operator behaviours are most prevalent in their mining operation and represent the greatest opportunities for cost reduction,” said Joseph.“As a company we strive to provide solutions to the mining industry and results like these further our mission to make every mining and earthmoving equipment operator safer and their employer more profitable,” said Peter Salfinger, CEO of Immersive Technologies.last_img read more

Rep Sam Farr Defense Communities Ally to Retire from Congress

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR California Rep. Sam Farr (D), a champion for defense community issues on both the national and local level since entering Congress more than 22 years ago, announced Thursday that he plans to retire at the end of his term.In a social media post announcing his decision not to seek re-election to his Monterey-based district in the state’s Central Coast, Farr recounted one of the enduring efforts he has dealt with since he first came to Washington — the redevelopment of the former Fort Ord.“When I first came to Congress, Fort Ord had just been closed and the community was going through an economic upheaval. Gangs were starting to take hold in Salinas and agriculture was slowly evolving from canned and frozen packaging to fresh-to-table.“I saw all these challenges as opportunities and I acted on them. Fort Ord is now economically stable and growing,” Farr said.To help the region successfully convert the post to civilian uses, Farr worked to provide the Army funds to clean up contamination and unexploded ordnance littering the installation, and to accelerate the property’s transfer to the local governments. More recently, he helped persuade President Obama to declare parts of the installation a national monument.Farr’s support for legislation establishing the no-cost economic development conveyance for BRAC properties and, later, legislation relaxing the requirement for the military to seek fair market value for closed bases benefitted Fort Ord and all base closure communities.Farr, a frequent speaker at ADC conferences, has served as co-chair of the House Defense Communities Caucus since it was created in 2011. In 2012, he sponsored legislation that now permits all military installations to adopt the “Monterey Model” and enter into intergovernmental support agreements with their host communities.For his long-standing advocacy for defense communities, ADC presented Farr its Senator David Pryor Special Achievement Award in 2007.“I love public service and I am proud of what I have accomplished while in office,” Farr said during his announcement at the National Steinbeck Center in Salinas. “I’m proud to have followed in my father’s footsteps, the late Senator Fred Farr, and I’d like to think between the two of us we have had a tremendous impact on this region, the state of California and the country we love so much.”Farr’s congressional district is expected to remain in Democratic hands following his retirement, reported CQ.last_img read more

Ennis was the same girlfriend who accused Foster of domestic violence last February, but later recanted her allegations in open court, which allowed Foster to avoid prosecution and continue playing in the NFL.In an interview with ABC, she now says her court testimony was a lie to protect Foster, and that he did actually abuse her. She also claims that representatives from the Niners came to the hotel room when the police arrived to investigate the latest incident and attempted to discredit her.Foster has been placed on the Commissioner’s Exempt list until his most recent legal case is resolved, but was claimed off waivers by the Redskins, and is still being paid under his contract.EXCLUSIVE: Ex-girlfriend of NFL star Reuben Foster recounts alleged assault as she speaks out to @ABC News’ @LinseyDavis.— ABC News (@ABC) December 6, 2018last_img read more
