Students attend Donald Trump rally

first_imgThe night before the pivotal Indiana primary, GOP frontrunner Donald Trump filled the Century Center in downtown South Bend to capacity. “And now the biggie is in Indiana. If we win in Indiana, it’s over,” Trump said in his speech Monday night.Rachel O’Grady | The Observer His prediction came true, as he won 53.3 percent of the Republican vote in Indiana the next day, leading Sen. Ted Cruz to drop out of the race. “We then focus on Hillary, and that’s going to be fun,” Trump said. “But remember, we started with 17 and one by one by one they went off. A governor, a senator, a senator, a governor. They didn’t know what the hell happened.”Wednesday afternoon, Ohio Gov. John Kasich also dropped out of the race, leaving Trump as the presumptive Republican nominee. Senior Steve Trottier was in attendance at Monday’s rally and said everything happened as he expected. “Ultimately, it was what I expected,” Trottier said. “Trump fulfills America’s thirst for the reality TV show style of politician.  He disdains any real substance and embraces the dramatic, often outrageous phrases one would expect behind a hashtag on Twitter.”Trump was 45 minutes late to the rally, which Trottier said built up the anticipation amongst the audience. “Trump was late and the anticipation was definitely mounting for him,” he said. “As I waited I spoke to a few supporters of Trump who said they couldn’t identify with ‘lyin’ Ted’ and wanted a president who would stick up for America.”Trottier said he saw the audience consisted mostly of white, working class individuals. “Unlike what I had seen in the media, I didn’t notice any protesters or agitators — most had been restricted to outside the convention center,” he said.Rachel O’Grady | The Observer Some of Trump’s major points included his endorsements from former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz and former Notre Dame basketball coach Digger Phelps, according to Trottier. “He did his usual song and dance about winning and mentioned ‘lyin’ Ted’ every chance he got, which was met with overwhelming boos from the audience,” Trottier said. “The only real substance Trump eventually offered came in the form of building a wall and stopping America’s abuse in international trade deals.”Trottier had also been in attendance for both the Bernie Sanders rally and the Ted Cruz rally on the two days prior. “I personally don’t support Trump.  I was able to attend the Cruz, Bernie and Trump rallies this past week,” he said. “I went to the rally to hear Trump unfiltered by the media and experience the rally for myself. The difference between the Cruz and Bernie rallies and Trumps rally was like night and day. Cruz and Bernie both presented substantive policy plans to address issues such as dwindling wages, while Trump’s was devoid of any.” As far as the political climate on campus, Trottier said there seems to be a clear divide. “I can’t speak for all Notre Dame students, but I do think people are very split on the candidate,” he said “I have not experienced any uncomfortable encounters talking or debating about the issues and candidates which is ultimately good. I think people at Notre Dame are willing to listen to each other and walk away disagreeing, but with a better understanding of where each person stands.”Tags: 2016 Election, Donald Trump, Donald Trump rally, Trumplast_img read more

This Web Feature Will Disappear in Five Seconds

first_imgBy Dialogo February 04, 2013 The sophisticated electronics used by war fighters in everything from radios, remote sensors and even phones can now be made at such a low cost that they are pervasive throughout the battlefield. These electronics have become necessary for operations, but it is almost impossible to track and recover every device. At the end of operations, these electronics are often found scattered across the battlefield and might be captured by the enemy and repurposed or studied to compromise the Department of Defense’s strategic technological advantage. What if these electronics simply disappeared when no longer needed? The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) announced the Vanishing Programmable Resources (VAPR) program with the aim of revolutionizing the state of the art in transient electronics or electronics capable of dissolving into the environment around them. Transient electronics developed under VAPR should maintain the current functionality and ruggedness of conventional electronics, but, when triggered, be able to degrade partially or completely into their surroundings. Once triggered to dissolve, these electronics would be useless to any enemy who might come across them. “The commercial off-the-shelf, or COTS, electronics made for everyday purchases are durable and last nearly forever,” said Alicia Jackson, DARPA program manager. “DARPA is looking for a way to make electronics that last precisely as long as they are needed. The breakdown of such devices could be triggered by a signal sent from command or any number of possible environmental conditions, such as temperature.” DARPA has posted a special announcement for a Proposers’ Day to be held in advance of a full solicitation in the form of a broad agency announcement. Performers are sought to conduct basic research into materials, devices, manufacturing and integration processes, and design methodology that will enable a revolutionary shift in transient electronics capabilities. The program seeks to culminate in a technology demonstration that builds a circuit representative of an environmental or biomedical sensor that is able to communicate with a remote user. “DARPA has previously demonstrated that transient electronics might be used to fight infections at surgical sites,” said Jackson. “Now, we want to develop a revolutionary new class of electronics for a variety of systems whose transience does not require submersion in water. This is a tall order, and we imagine a multidisciplinary approach. Teams will likely need industry experts who understand circuits, integration, and, design. Performers from the material science community will be sought to develop novel substrates. There’s lots of room for innovation by clever people with diverse expertise.”last_img read more
