Guy Albert de Chimay – On Sporting Events at Bennett Indoor Athletic Complex Becoming Even Brighter

Green Arc Energy Advisors boosted light coverage and efficiency of field surfaces inside the Bennett air dome with exceptional LED lighting.

NEW YORK, NY - May 22, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

The John Bennett Indoor Athletic Complex, a multi-sport facility operated by Tom’s River Regional School District in Tom’s River, NJ, recently got remarkably brighter with the installation of new LED light fixtures. Guy Albert de Chimay, Executive VP of Green Arc Energy Advisors, is proud to announce that the company has completed a retro-conversion of the air dome facility by replacing existing 1000-watt metal halide light fixtures with Green Arc’s patented Eclipse 495-watt LED fixtures.

With its huge field area and 200-meter, 6-lane track, the 80,000 square-foot John Bennett Indoor Athletic Complex is designed to host many sporting events, including soccer, basketball, and track and field events. Though lighting coverage and efficiency are never a concern on sunny days because of the dome’s translucent envelope that allows natural light during the day, nighttime athletic events required a much-needed lighting transformation.

“The conversion of the John Bennett Athletic Complex has been remarkable. The new lighting and improved aesthetics are even more impressive when you consider that the ESIP-based project was self-funding and cost-neutral, and will continue to provide significant cost savings for the district moving forward while enhancing a well-utilized structure. I commend our facilities team, Green Arc Energy Advisors, and everyone involved in completing this project efficiently and successfully,” said David Healy, Superintendent of Toms River Regional Schools.

In total, 67 Eclipse LED fixtures were installed to replace the metal halides, which had pretty much neared the end of their useful lifecycle. Another issue with the dome’s metal halide fixtures is that many were regularly out of service, since they required regular lamp and ballast replacements, as opposed to Eclipse LED fixtures that require no maintenance and are virtually trouble-free. The useful life capacity of metal halide lighting is generally between 4,000 and 10,000 hours compared with more than 100,000 hours with the Eclipse LED fixtures. This represents a tremendous advantage LED offers versus metal halides and other lighting fixture types in terms of lifespan and efficiency.

“With our LED lighting conversion of the Bennett dome, light distribution, coverage, and brightness are dramatically better now. And with a color temperature of 5,200 kelvin, the ability to see a sport’s ball in play is vastly improved,” said Guy Albert de Chimay, Executive Vice President of Green Arc Energy Advisors. “Equally important is the approximate 54% decrease in total energy consumption the dome will actualize compared to its previous lamp and ballast configuration. The facility will also see an annual savings of more than 50%.”

About Green Arc’s Patented Eclipse LED Lighting
Designed specifically for the demanding requirements of air dome/air-inflated structures, butler buildings with reflective ceilings, fabric-over-frame structures, and natatoriums, Eclipse is designed with innovative Controlled Light Delivery (CLD) technology to deliver brighter output, better light distribution, lower wattage, and run much cooler for enhanced longevity, making them ideal for use over all court and field surfaces. By generating 50,000 lumens (405w), 55,000 lumens (450w), or 60,000 lumens (495w), depending on lighting needs, direct energy usage can be reduced to 62%, 58%, or 54%, respectively. Eclipse LED lighting is the ideal solution for both amateur and professional sports facilities, in both direct and indirect lighting configurations. Eclipse also has sealed LED arrays, making them resistant to water and dust, which will provide years of consistent, trouble-free illumination. In addition, these fixtures qualify for energy rebates in participating jurisdictions.

TALUSTUSAN, Philippines — The American priest's voice echoed over the phone line, his sharp Midwestern accent softened over the decades by a gentle Filipino lilt. On the other end, recording the call, was a young man battered by shame but anxious to get the priest to describe exactly what had happened in this little island village. "I should have known better than trying to just have a life," the priest said in the November 2018 call. "Happy days are gone. It's all over." But, the young man later told the Associated Press, those days were happy only for the priest....

TOKYO — He sits in an office of a major Japanese sportswear maker but reports to no one. He is assigned odd tasks like translating into English the manual on company rules like policies on vacations and daily hours, though he has minimal foreign language skills. He was sidelined, he says, as retribution for taking paternity leaves after each of his two sons was born. Now he's the plaintiff in one of the first lawsuits in Japan over "pata-hara," or paternity harassment, as it is known here. The first hearing is scheduled for this week. His case is unusual in...

China ban on some textbooks seen aimed at Uighur culture

Sep 15, 2019

BEIJING — For 15 years, Yalqun Rozi skillfully navigated state bureaucracies to publish textbooks that taught classic poems and folk tales to millions of his fellow minority Uighurs in China's far western region of Xinjiang. That all changed three years ago when the ruling Communist Party launched what it says is a campaign against ethnic separatism and religious extremism in Xinjiang. Suddenly even respected public figures like Rozi were being arrested, caught up in a crackdown that critics have said amounts to cultural genocide. An estimated 1 million Uighurs have since been detained in internment camps and prisons across the...

HONG KONG — Hong Kong protesters threw bricks and gasoline bombs at police, who responded with tear gas, as chaotic scenes returned to the summer-long anti-government protests on Saturday for the first time in nearly two weeks. Hundreds of black-clad protesters armed with bamboo poles and baseball bats fought with police officers wielding batons on a main road following a march against "smart lampposts" that was sparked by surveillance fears. The chaotic scenes unfolded outside a police station and a nearby shopping mall as officers in riot gear faced off with protesters who set up makeshift street barricades. The violence...

Chinese pop stars publicly back Beijing on Hong Kong

HONG KONG — At least eight pop stars from mainland China and one each from Taiwan and Hong Kong are publicly stating their support for Beijing's one-China policy, eliciting a mixture of disappointment and understanding from fans. Many of the statements came after protesters opposed to Beijing's growing influence over semi-autonomous Hong Kong removed a Chinese flag and tossed it into Victoria Harbour earlier this month. Lay Zhang, Jackson Wang, Lai Kuan-lin and Victoria Song were among the K-pop singers who recently uploaded a Chinese flag and declared themselves as "one of 1.4 billion guardians of the Chinese flag" on...
