The agreement sets a $250,000 purchase price and gives the company 60 days to submit a Planned Unit Development (PUD) application, the first step in obtaining city approvals for the project.Part of the Boji Development proposal presented earlier this month included this look at the 14-unit courthouse property and the Farmington Public Schools property not yet on the market. (file photo)In a memo to council members, City Manager David Murphy said the company will submit a $20,000 deposit that is refundable only if the city fails to approve the PUD agreement within six months or if there are issues with the property title.“However, if the Developer fails to submit a PUD application timely within 60 days, or if the Developer fails to diligently pursue the PUD approval and does not cure that failure on 30 days’ notice by the City, then the City may declare the deposit forfeited,” he wrote.Read more: HILLS DEVELOPER MAY BRING 14 NEW HOMES TO FARMINGTONFARMINGTON OFFICIALS REVIEW NEW COURTHOUSE PROPERTY PLANSANALYSIS: FARMINGTON COURTHOUSE PROPERTY NO EASY SELL Reported bylast_img read more

Batteryless Smart Door Locks Now Powered by Wireless Charging Technology

first_imgWireless power services provider, Wi-Charge together with ZK Teco USA, has launched a unique integration of a high-end multi-biometric door lock using its Wi-Charge long-range wireless power receiver. Unlike traditional smart door locks, this solution does not require a battery or power source. It uses wireless charging technology to power the lock. The offering was showcased at the MWC Americas 2018 event held in Los Angeles, California.Smart locks provide controlled, secure, and keyless access to homes and offices. They offer unique flexibility, convenience and management and are one of the key components of smart homes. But smart locks often use batteries, and thus require their owners to replace the batteries several times a year or risk losing access. In addition, device manufacturers are limited in their ability to add functionality to these locks because of limited power budget.Wi-Charge has demonstrated a solution to overcome these critical issues. By integrating its long-range wireless power system with the highly-advanced smart lock from ZKTeco USA, battery replacements are no longer required, and highly-desired capabilities can be added with ease. The stylish integration is a prototype to show the limitless possibilities from integrating leading-edge security technologies with next-generation power delivery.Wi-Charge is the long-range wireless power company, founded with the goal of enabling automatic charging of phones and other smart devices. Their patented infrared wireless power technology can deliver several watts of power to client devices up to 10 meters away. The company developed remote charging solutions that enable mobile and wireless devices to seamlessly recharge themselves without user intervention.last_img read more

Vanderbilt signees will help plug holes in roster

first_imgThe Vanderbilt men’s basketball team landed a post player and a point guard, both ranked among the nation’s top 130 players, in its 2016 signing class Wednesday.Clevon Brown, a 6-foot-8 forward from San Antonio, chose Vanderbilt over Texas, Illinois, Notre Dame and Auburn, and he gives the Commodores a highly touted athletic big man to help replace junior Damian Jones, who plans to enter the NBA Draft after this season.Brown, rated a four-star prospect by Scout.com, averaged 16.8 points, 9.4 rebounds and 3.2 blocks at Churchill High in San Antonio last season. He was rated the nation’s 126th-best player by Rivals.comPayton Willis, a 6-4 point guard, was ranked the nation’s 119th-best player by Rivals.com and the 22nd-best point guard by 247 Sports. He averaged 15.9 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.5 steals at Fayetteville (Ark.) High last season.Willis has played both shooting guard and point guard, but his recently shown ability at the latter position made him especially intriguing to the Commodores.Vanderbilt point guard Wade Baldwin set the program’s freshman record for assists (155) last season, but fellow point guard Shelton Mitchell transferred to Clemson in the offseason. Willis could help fill that void as an additional point guard option.TENNESSEE: Ensworth point guard Jordan Bone was among the signees Rick Barnes added. The younger brother of former UT guard Josh Bone, Jordan is rated by 247Sports as the sixth-best in-state prospect and the 222nd overall player in the country.Also joining the class is Jalen Johnson, a 6-foot-6 small forward from High Point, N.C., who is rated by 247Sports as the No. 5 overall player in North Carolina and the No. 152 overall prospect in the country. The Vols also are expecting a letter of intent from three-star power forward John Fulkerson on Thursday.Fulkerson hinted that another piece of the 2016 signing class could surface later this week in three-star power forward Grant Williams (Charlotte). Williams, at 6-7, 235 pounds,will commit and sign on Friday. He is considering Tennessee, Yale and Princeton.“I think he’ll be a Vol soon,” Fulkerson said last week.Three-star point guard Kwe Parker is scheduled to visit Tennessee this weekend. Parker, who decommitted from Rutgers last week, is high school teammates with Johnson at Wesleyan Christian in Wade, N.C.hree-star prospect opened Rick Barnes’ eyes not with his answers, but with his questions.At times during the recruiting process, the High Point, N.C., small forward controlled the conversation with the first-year UT coach.“It wasn’t the generic questions you would expect,” Barnes said Wednesday after Johnson signed with the Vols on the first day of college basketball’s early signing period.“(He was) just really talking about development, how we develop him,” Barnes added. “And I asked him some pretty tough questions, and I really appreciated his honesty and how he answered those questions.”Tennessee announced the signing of three-star in-state point guard Jordan Bone on Wednesday afternoon, after Barnes had met with reporters.Johnson, who committed to UT on Oct. 11, is rated by 247Sports as the No. 5 overall player in North Carolina in 2016 and the No. 152 overall prospect in the country.“He’s extremely athletic,” Barnes said. “The last time I saw him play, I was really impressed with his last workout I saw, because I don’t know if he missed a shot the entire time.”Johnson, even at 6-6, is listed at just 170 pounds. Barnes said that’s not a problem.“You have to remember,” Barnes said, “we coached a guy (at Texas) that everybody questioned how strong he was, and he turned out to be a pretty good player, Kevin Durant. People made fun of him when he couldn’t bench press 185 pounds.“Not that I’m comparing Jalen to Kevin, but in terms of what you learn when you’re dealing with young people like this, you’ve got to try to project where they will be with their bodies, physically.“We think he’s going to be a good get for us.”Bone, the first verbal pledge of Tennessee’s 2016 class, is“It just seemed too right, honestly,” he told the News Sentinel after committing on Sept. 13.Fulkerson, a 6-8 Kingsport native, became the third verbal commitment in Tennessee’s 2016 class when he picked the Vols over Charlotte and Georgia last week.“I just think Tennessee was the best place for me,” Fulkerson told the News Sentinel. last_img read more
