National Radio Astronomy Observatory Press Release

news-21-01-2014aThe Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) will get a new system allowing it to continuously monitor the sky to study the Earth's ionosphere and detect short bursts of radio emission from astronomical objects. The National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) and the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) signed a $1 million contract under which NRL will fund a system to capture data from low-frequency radio receivers mounted on VLA antennas that will allow simultaneous and completely independent operation alongside the VLA's standard scientific observations.

"This essentially will turn the VLA into two telescopes, working in parallel to perform different types of scientific research simultaneously," said Dale Frail, NRAO's Director for New Mexico Operations.

Byers, professor of psychology at the University of New Brunswick, has been awarded the 2013 Alfred C. Kinsey Award by the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality. She received the award at the society's annual meeting in San Diego, Calif.

Byers said the award is special because it recognizes her achievements throughout a long career. As well, she was the unanimous choice of the society - the number one sex research organization in the United States.

Fredericton Outdoor Summer Theatre brings the city and our history to life from Canada Day through Labour Day

By LORI GALLAGHER

Theatre in the great outdoors has become a staple in Fredericton thanks to the talents of the Fencibles and the Calithumpians.

The two are part of Fredericton Outdoor Summer Theatre, the group that brings locals and tourists everything from Haunted Hikes and theatre in Officers Square to events at the Guard House and tours of the downtown.

“We’ve got a neat group of kids this year,” says Peter Pacey, the founder and producer of Fredericton Outdoor Summer Theatre. “They’re so multitalented.”

Each year, the Calithumpians perform a round of four shows in Officers Square. They can be found there daily between Canada Day and Labour Day, with shows at 12:15 p.m. weekdays and 2 p.m. on the weekends.

“What I do is I come up with the ideas for the show and give some kind of content or box for the kids to kind of work within, and then I work with them to think about the messages we want to have, then set them and their imaginations free,” says Pacey. “They write their own material with me as an editorial kind of person.” His role in the company is the producer and this year, his son, Will Pacey, is taking on the role of director.
