New Book Release – Unintended Consequences: When Adults took the fun out of Youth Sports, by Jerry Norton

Unintended Consequences: When Adults took the fun out of Youth Sports, by Jerry Norton, helps make sense of today’s youth sports and how to set it back on a course toward fun.

Ponte Vedra, FL, USA — Jerry Norton’s Unintended Consequences: When Adults took the fun out of Youth Sports is a look at the deplorable situation in youth sports through the 84-year old eyes of photojournalist, youth coach, referee and league administrator Jerry Norton. Norton makes the case that youth sports have become more about winning than playing and more about adult egos than kids’ enjoyment and participation.

According to Coach Jerry, the evidence is clear and the verdict is in. Adults–whether malicious or well-meaning–are deemed guilty of hijacking youth sports’ most noble and worthy objective–fun. Win-at-all-cost coaches and demanding parents with unrealistic expectations are responsible for horrific acts of violence as well as untold incidents of child abuse that have become common-place in youth sports. The long-time youth sports activist offers constructive criticisms as well as solutions intended to make kids’ sports fun again for all participants.

Stephen G (Jerry) Norton is the father of three sons and a retired aerospace engineer who spent nearly 60 years as a volunteer coach, referee, and league administrator and president. He is now a sports photojournalist covering youth, high school and professional sports. He has coached youth baseball, football, swimming, tennis and girls’ softball and has conducted clinics for wheelchair bound and Special Olympic tennis players. He is the founder and president of Junior Development League Football.

Future Electronics Promotes High Efficiency SOT26 Synchronous DC/DC Buck Converters from Diodes Inc.

Pointe Claire, Quebec (realtimepressrelease) February 1, 2016 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, recently announced immediate availability of high efficiency SOT26 1.5A/2A synchronous DC/DC buck converters from Diodes Incorporated.

Efficient operation combined with the standard pin-out, space saving SOT26 package are key features of the new 1.5A AP65101 and 2A AP65201 synchronous DC/DC buck converters recently introduced by Diodes Inc.

These synchronous DC/DC buck converters from Diodes Inc. are ideal for consumer electronics, including TVs, set-top boxes, computer monitors and home audio. The devices achieve maximum continuous current efficiencies up to 97% with improved efficiency at lower loads ensured by an automatic light load algorithm.

The AP65101/201 buck converters are designed for low voltage regulation, especially in distributed power architectures, and operate from 4.5V to 16V inputs while delivering adjustable output voltage from 0.8V up to 80% of VIN. A low quiescent supply current and integrated high and low side switches with low RDS(ON) both help to reduce power loss. Protection features such as under-voltage lockout, overcurrent, over-voltage and over-temperature, help prevent damage to downstream components and stress-induced premature component failure. The device enable pin also has a high voltage tolerance of up to 6V.

The high level of integration and minimal need for external components combined with the small-footprint TSOT26 package provide considerable savings in both cost and circuit board space.
