It also has a super fast boot and warm-up time, allowing it to start taking measurements just over a minute after being turned on. Moreover, there is no requirement for calibration due to temperature and frequency changes, which saves time.Another time-saving feature is the use of the wizard function that guides users through measurements in easy-to-follow steps. All settings and measurement steps can be preconfigured. Field technicians only need to execute the test sequences as shown on the display.

Ahead of Sunday’s Manchester derby, Pep Guardiola has revealed he admires the way Jose Mourinho has battled through recent adversity as his Manchester City side prepare to face rivals Manchester United at the Etihad.Mourinho has come through a tough period as United boss but he and his players received a huge confidence boost in midweek when they came from behind to beat Juventus 2-1 away in the Champions League.A run of inconsistent results prior to that game in Turin has left the Old Trafford side off the pace in the Premier League title race but Guardiola has been impressed with how his long-standing rival and his other peers have come through adversity.“I admire not just Jose, all the managers, especially when they have tough problems,” Guardiola said“The situation he lives I have lived in the past myself and when it is going bad I will be in the same position.“I want to beat all the managers. We are not all friends – it is not necessary to be friends – but I am in the same position and when they suffer I know I will be there sooner or later.“Especially I admire the managers that react in the tough moments when you lose games, and, both of us, we are similar.“The expectation of us all is so high. If we don’t win, always we fail. He reacts and still stands up and keeps going.“We have to win all the titles we play for. We are quite similar in those situations.”Victory for Guardiola’s Manchester City side on Sunday would extend their lead over their Manchester rivals to 12 points and cement their place at the top of the Premier League table.Related read more
WHITTIER – Area residents interested in owning a home, refinancing their mortgage or taking steps to avoid foreclosure are encouraged to contact a local housing counseling agency approved by the federal government for advice. A state-by-state list of these agencies can be found at www.hud.gov/offices/hsg/sfh/hcc/hcs.cfm. Government housing officials say the key to avoiding scams or being steered into accepting a risky loan is the ability to read and comprehend the fine print of a mortgage while being ready to ask for help when necessary. Housing counseling agencies can help homeowners make informed financial decision and avoid high-risk, high-cost loans that place them at greater risk of foreclosure.
