Positive Consumer Ratings Led to This Industry-Leading Distinction from Caring.com LANHAM, MD--(Marketwired - November 07, 2016) - Arbor Terrace Senior Living (9885 Greenbelt Road, Lanham) is pleased to announce it has been selected as a "Caring Super Star of 2017" for service excellence in Assisted Living, in three or more years since 2012. In ratings and reviews from family caregivers and cognitively healthy older adults, Arbor Terrace Senior Living earned a 5-star consumer rating (the highest possible score) within the last year, while also having a high volume of positive reviews and meeting other qualifying criteria for this national honor year after year. Nationwide, there are only 67 Caring Super Stars in 2017, so Arbor Terrace Senior Living truly stands out as among the top senior living communities in the country. "We strive daily to delivery high-quality care for our residents, and this award helps validate our delivery on that promise," said Rita Chapman, Executive Director of Arbor Terrace Senior Living. "On behalf of our community staff and leadership, thank you to those who shared positive feedback about the services we offer, and to Caring.com for recognizing us as a Caring Star in multiple years, helping us to achieve 'Caring Super Star' status in 2017." Americans are increasingly seeking insights provided by online reviews to help guide important senior care decisions for aging or ailing loved ones. In multiple Caring.com research studies, the majority of family caregivers have indicated that they turn to the Internet and consumer reviews when researching senior living communities, and have relied on these perspectives more so than in-person recommendations from geriatric professionals or medical personnel. Now entering its sixth year, the Caring Stars annual list helps consumers reliably narrow senior living options for their loved ones to the most-acclaimed communities -- particularly as they gather for the holidays and discover increased or urgent senior care needs. "Congratulations to Arbor Terrace Senior Living for achieving this award after earning accolades from residents and their loved ones on Caring.com," said Karen Cassel, Caring.com CEO. "This important milestone speaks volumes about the positive difference Arbor Terrace Senior Living is making in serving older adults, and we join with the local community in celebrating their accomplishment."

Athena is a European X-ray observatory, scheduled for launch in (Formula presented.)2028. Athena will employ a high-resolution imaging spectrometer called X-ray integral field unit (X-IFU), consisting of an array of (Formula presented.)4000 transition edge sensor (TES) microcalorimeter pixels. For the readout of X-IFU, we are developing frequency domain multiplexing, which is the baseline readout system. In this paper, we report on the performance of a TES X-ray calorimeter array fabricated at Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) at MHz frequencies for the baseline of X-IFU detector. During single-pixel AC bias characterization, we measured X-ray energy resolutions (at 6 keV) of about 2.9 eV at both 2.3 and 3.7 MHz. Furthermore, in the multiplexing mode, we measured X-ray energy resolutions of about 2.9 eV at 1.3 and 1.7 MHz. © 2016 Springer Science+Business Media New York
