Neil Lennon said he was just concentrating on a successful end to Celtic’s season after a number of candidates were linked to the manager’s job.Lennon is on a deal until the end of the season after replacing Brendan Rodgers in February.Several names, including ex-Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas and current Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez, have been linked with the job in recent days.Speaking ahead of Sunday’s Scottish Cup semi-final against Aberdeen, where Celtic will aim to take a step closer to a historic triple treble, Lennon said speculation was “inevitable”. He said: “You can’t stop it, it’s natural and it may be the club go down that road. “They’ll make the decision, it’s their club, it’s the fans’ club and it’s important for them they’re happy with what they’re doing.“I’m just concentrating on the here and now and staying in the present until I’m told otherwise.” The former Celtic skipper hailed the Hoops’ remarkable cup record over the past two-and-a-half seasons where they have yet to lose. He said: “Fantastic consistency and mentality as well and I am just looking for more of the same come Sunday. “It is more important for the players really. The know they are one game away from another final. “They have handled these occasions pretty well over the last few seasons and obviously the cup record is spectacular. “It is important we approach the game the right way. We know we are up against a very tough opponent.”

The fellows program provides extensive, long-term financial support for basic research by distinguished U.S. university scientists and engineers. It was launched in 2008 as the National Security Science and Engineering Faculty Fellowship program and renamed this year in honor of Vannevar Bush, an American engineer and inventor who headed U.S. scientific research during World War II and later helped found the National Science Foundation.Richard BaraniukBaraniuk, Rice’s Victor E. Cameron Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is one of the world’s leading experts on compressive sensing, a branch of signal processing based on mathematical techniques developed in 2004 that enables engineers to glean useful information from far fewer data samples than would typically be required.Baraniuk holds 28 U.S. patents and six foreign patents in signal processing and acquisition, including a dozen related to compressive sensing. For example, in 2006 Baraniuk and colleagues used compressive sensing to create the world’s first single-pixel camera and they followed that up in 2015 with FlatCam, a lens-less camera thinner than a dime that can be fabricated like a microchip.“There are nearly 1 trillion Internet-connected sensors on Earth, and the resulting deluge of data from all those sensors stresses our capability to process, understand and make decisions in real time, all of which are important for national security,” Baraniuk said.“Compressive sensing is one of most exciting new approaches for solving these problems, but there are still misunderstandings and misconceptions about it,” he said. “Compressive sensing is not a panacea, but it does afford opportunities to profoundly rethink signal models, dimensionality reduction and recovery algorithms. Our Bush Fellow research program will explore, characterize, optimize and introduce new sensing trade-offs that aim to broaden the applicability of the concept, improve its performance in the wild and enable radically new sensing and processing capabilities.”Baraniuk and the class of 2017 Bush Fellows join an elite group of 58 scientists and engineers previously recognized by the National Security Science and Engineering Faculty Fellows program. These include Rice nanophotonics pioneer Naomi Halas, the Stanley C. Moore Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and professor of chemistry, of bioengineering, of physics and astronomy and of materials science and nanoengineering.Baraniuk joined Rice in 1992. In addition to his research in signal processing, he’s a well-known pioneer in open education. He founded Rice-based Connexions in 1999 to bring textbooks and other learning materials to the Internet, and in 2012 founded Rice-based open textbook publisher OpenStax, whose freely available textbooks have been used by more than 1.8 million college students.Baraniuk is a fellow of the National Academy of Inventors, the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), been thrice recognized as a Thomson Reuters’ Highly Cited Researcher, is a three-time winner of Rice’s George R. Brown Award for Superior Teaching and the winner of Rice’s 2014 Presidential Mentoring Award. His other honors and awards include the 2012 Compressive Sampling Pioneer Award and the 2008 Wavelet Pioneer Award, both from the International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE); the 2015 IEEE James H. Mulligan Education Medal; and the IEEE Signal Processing Society’s Best Paper (2015), Technical Achievement (2014) and Education (2010) awards.-30-A high-resolution IMAGE is available for download at:http://news.rice.edu/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/0805_OSX-K12-rich-lg.jpgCAPTION: Richard Baraniuk (Photo by Jeff Fitlow/Rice University)Related compressive sensing research from Rice:Random DNA + high-tech math = ‘universal microbial diagnostic’ — Sept. 28, 2016http://news.rice.edu/2016/09/28/random-dna-high-tech-math-universal-microbial-diagnostic/No lens?

Rice has highly respected schools of Architecture, Business, Continuing Studies, Engineering, Humanities, Music, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences and is home to the Baker Institute for Public Policy. With 3,879 undergraduates and 2,861 graduate students, Rice’s undergraduate student-to-faculty ratio is 6-to-1. Its residential college system builds close-knit communities and lifelong friendships, just one reason why Rice is ranked No. 1 for happiest students and for lots of race/class interaction by the Princeton Review. Rice is also rated as a best value among private universities by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance. To read “What they’re saying about Rice,” go to http://tinyurl.com/RiceUniversityoverview.
Kochi: A colourful rally accompanied by floats and folk dance performances on Monday marked the ‘Athachamayam’ celebrations, heralding the start of the 10-day ‘Onam’ festivities in Kerala. State Culture Minister A K Balan inaugurated the celebrations at nearby Tripunithura, capital of the erstwhile Royal Kingdom of Kochi. In his speech, the Minister highlighted the relevance of Onam, saying it displays unity of people beyond caste, creed and religion. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’ The state government has made elaborate arrangements for celebrating Onam this year. The spirit of Onam would give strength to the people of the state to come out of the difficulties caused due to the devastating floods, Balan said. Various folk art forms like Theyyam, Kolkali, Mayilattom, Ammankudam, Pulikkali, and classical art forms like Kathakali added colour to the Athachamayam procession. Giving a rhythmic touch to the procession, percussionists performed Chendamelam and panchavadyam. In the days of kings, the Maharaja of Kochi used to participate in the procession from Tripunithura to the Vamanamoorthy temple at Thrikkakara. According to legends, the festival is celebrated to welcome King Mahabali, whose spirit is believed to visit Kerala at the time of Onam to see his subjects.
