Sundquist Farmington Pavilion and Riley Park in downtown Farmington.New market vendors include Chive Kitchen, a downtown Farmington restaurant that offers vegan fare. Owner and chef Suzy Silvestre said she’ll offer Arroz Gordo, Portuguese Stir Fry for $8. The gluten-free and nut-free dish consists of jasmine rice, house-made chorizo, scramble, chickpeas, mushroom bacon, scallions, and potatoes, smothered in a savory pepper sofrito.Chive Kitchen will have Arroz Gordo, Portuguese Stir Fry, at Saturday’s Farmington Farmers Market. (Chive Kitchen)“Chive has pivoted away from a full service restaurant and is specializing in on line pre-orders, catering, private events as well as special coursed dinners and brunches,” Silvestre said. “All of our specials, deli items, groceries and tickets for our special dinners and brunches can be purchased on chivekitchen.com.”Two metro Detroit businesses, Gus and Grey hand-crafted jams and preserves, and Drench clean, natural salad dressings, are also among Saturday’s new vendors.Always set in early August, National Farmers Market Week honors the abundance provided by markets across the country – and Farmington is no exception. At this week’s market, you’ll find melons, peaches, cherries, blackberries, blueberries, sweet corn, field tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, onions, garlic, potatoes, beets, lettuce, summer squash, beans and more.To mark this special week, farm stands will have information posted about their operations, to help shoppers learn more about where their food comes from.Grab a cup of coffee from Mugs Coffee and Grub of Farmington, now an official vendor offering a variety of fresh roasts, cold brews and iced tea, and listen to acoustic artist Steve Taylor, who brings music to the market at 10 a.m.While the market is open from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m., early bird shoppers will find some booths open and ready for business at 8 a.m.“I’m definitely seeing more people at market before 9 a.m.,” Market Manager Walt Gajewski said. “We’re doing this because we believe extending the hours is good for social distancing. Now, all the vendors may not be fully set up – especially, say, our food artisans and crafters, but the farmers will all be ready, the coffee will be on, and Petey’s Donuts should be rolling off the conveyor line!”Reusable bags will be available this week for a donation of $1 or more, with all proceeds going to support the market. Learn about COVID-19 safety protocols, including required masks, pre-order from vendors, and more at farmingtonfarmersmarket.com and follow the market on Facebook. Reported bylast_img read more

Telit Introduces GPS Module with Lower Power Consumption and Higher Sensitivity

first_imgTelit has announced commercial availability of the SE873Q5, an ultra-low-power, high-sensitivity GNSS module with very small physical dimensions. The new module leverages miniaturization technology to improve power saving and sensitivity, delivering longer battery life and expanding design possibilities for tracking and navigation application areas particularly in wearable devices. The multi-constellation receiver module can be set to a number of different power saving modes depending on application requirements and includes an ultra-low noise amplifier for boosting sensitivity. This allows developers to explore a much wider variety of device designs, enclosures, and relative placement inside personal devices, garments, or other space constrained electronics.The SE873Q5 (according to Telit) is the smallest flash-memory based GNSS module capable of tracking three constellations simultaneously at its power level. It integrates innovation in components and design reducing power consumption by 20%, while boosting satellite signal reception sensitivity compared to the SE873. With complete pin-to-pin compatibility, the SE873Q5 can also be applied in existing designs based on the SE873, instantly boosting device performance as well as creating opportunities for new and upgraded products with very short time-to-market.When it comes to application areas like wearables and others in the commercial and consumer spaces, there is no such thing as ‘too small’ or ‘too power-efficient. And when you add to this type of efficiency, a stellar front-end RF performance in a miniature global satellite positioning receiver module, you immediately open up new product and business opportunities because now your antenna requirements are easier to meet; and you can explore more ‘buried’ designs where the module, used with an integrated antenna, can be encased deeper into the physical environment of the consumer, commercial, or industrial application – said Felix Marchal, Executive Vice President of GNSS and Short Range Wireless.The Jupiter SE873Q5 is packaged in a 7 x 7 x 1.85 mm QFN-like package, equipped SQI Flash memory, switching power supply and integrated high-performance LNA. It is designed to support GPS, GLONASS, Beidou and is Galileo ready, delivering simultaneous tracking in two modes: GPS+Galileo and Glonass or GPS+Galileo and Beidou. To extend battery life, the module includes a low-power tracking mode as well as advanced low-power modes: SmartGNSS 1 & 2, duty cycle, push-to-fix. Because it is flash-memory-based, it enables easy firmware updates, customization of operating parameters and supports ephemeris file injection (A-GPS) for up to 14 days, resulting in faster TTFF. Navigation data is delivered using OSP binary protocol or NMEA through standard UART, SPI or I2C ports. The module supports A-GPS as well as Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) to increase position accuracy. Server generated and Client generated extended ephemeris are supported and stored in internal Flash memory. The enhanced sensitivity of the SE873Q5 is rated at -147 dBm for acquisition, -161 dBm for navigation and -167 dBm for tracking.last_img read more

Instant Analysis | UK Governor’s Cup Notes

first_imgThere were two skirmishes before and two during Saturday’s battle for the Governor’s Cup, setting the tone for an intense (and insane) Kentucky-Louisville football rivalry game. The Wildcats, who hadn’t showed much fight during a five-game losing streak, came out swinging literally and figuratively against the 24th-ranked Cardinals. They surged to a surprising 13-0 lead early and a pair of fourth-quarter leads before falling 44-40 in a heartbreaker.Quarterback Patrick Towles, who had a brutal day for the Cats, sealed UK’s fate with an interception in the final minute. Kentucky (5-6) closed the season with six straight losses and will be left out of the bowl season for the fifth straight year.What we learned in Louisville football’s game against Kentucky Play of the game – With UK down 37-33 late in the fourth quarter, true freshman tailback Stanley “Boom” Williams once again earned his nickname, busting multiple tackles and churning his legs at the goal line to push defenders into the end zone for a go-ahead, 11-yard touchdown run that gave the Cats a 40-37 lead with 5:31 to go. While the Cards came back to take the lead, that run was an all-timer.Instant Analysis | Takeaways from Louisville’s Governor’s Cup performance Turning point – Kentucky’s offense had sputtered all day. The Wildcats were only in it because the defense scored on Fred Tiller’s interception return and Mike Douglas’ fumble return — and the special teams blocked a punt. QB Patrick Towles had thrown an interception with 7:45 to go, deep in his own end, that seemed to seal UK’s fate. Towles was 11 of 25 for 108 yards at that point and the Cats trailed by four. Then he hit Demarco Robinson down the right sideline for 50 yards, and Blake Bone for 11 to the U of L. From there, Boom Williams did his thing, giving Kentucky a chance late. MVP – Tie: Kentucky’s defense forcing four turnovers and scoring two touchdowns or Williams, who rushed 18 times for 126 yards and two touchdowns. His bright future is a touch of consolation for the Cats. Live Blog | Kentucky-Louisville football updatesTakeaway – The Cats are still a work in progress and simply had no answer for DeVante Parker, whose six catches for 180 yards and three touchdowns made third-string quarterback Kyle Bolin (a Lexington native) look like an All-American. After a 5-1 start, Kentucky ended the season with six straight losses to ensure their fifth consecutive sub-.500 season, unable to secure their first bowl berth since 2010. Louisville’s Bobby Petrino improved to 5-0 against Kentucky as the Cards’ coach. * For instant updates on the Wildcats, follow me on Twitter @KyleTucker_CJ. Email me at ktucker@courier-journal.com .
