State Rep Dave Robertson His Colleagues Help Tewksbury Take Official Possession Of

first_imgBOSTON, MA — Below is a recent press release from State Representative Dave Robertson’s office:August 2nd, 1967 was the beginning of a long story between Tewksbury, the State, and a piece of land bounded by Livingston Street and forever deeded for recreational purposes. Transferred under Act 497, the Now, 53 years later, the parks, fields, and trails known as Saunders Field are officially part of the town of Tewksbury thanks to the work of the state delegation and town.“As a child I played, or tried to play, baseball on those fields. I watched the 4th of July there, rode my bike from the Middle School to the recreational department, and even attended the haunted house,” said Representative Dave Robertson (D-Tewksbury) upon the transfer of the deed to the town. “The entire time I had no idea that it was not officially town land until I was older, which left me perplexed. Because of this it was a special honor to work with Senator Finegold and Nguyen on getting this issue wrapped up and securing Livingston permanently for the town.”“Transferring the Livingston Street Fields back to the Town of Tewksbury was one of my top priorities upon coming into office in January,” added Senator Barry Finegold (D-Andover). “Working together with Representatives Nguyen and Robertson, we were able to resolve a decades-old issue in a matter of months. These 35 acres are invaluable to the community, and I’m thrilled that they will now be officially owned and controlled by the town.”“I am very proud to work on behalf of the residents of Tewksbury with my colleagues,” noted Representative Tram Nguyen (D-Andover). “I am especially delighted that we were able to work together to get the deed transferred and make certain that the Livingston Street Fields that the residents of Tewksbury have long enjoyed now officially belong to the town.”The Saunders Recreational Fields, often known to locals as the Livingston Street Fields, are the crowning jewel of the Tewksbury park system. Encompassing 35 acres the land is host to tennis courts, lacrosse fields, football fields, the majority of baseball fields, and more. Recently the town and state have recently made major investments into the center, including the opening of a water park and fitness court, with state budget funding allocated to the improvement and upgrade of parking amenities for those using the unimproved lots. The fields are also utilized for large-scale community events, such as the 4th of July, and are the most frequented recreational area for the town.“This is great for the town,” said Selectman Jay Kelley. “We have great programs and opportunities, and this helps secure a future for our town. I look forward to seeing many more generations of kids growing up and playing there.”Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook. Follow Wilmington Apple on Twitter. Follow Wilmington Apple on Instagram.

Electricity tariff in Karnataka hiked by 33 paise per unit

first_imgThe electricity bills will get more expensive in Karnataka as the Karnataka Electric Regulatory Commission (KERC) has once again increased a hike of 33 paise per unit in the tariff.KERC chairman Shambhu Dayal Meena said that the five electricity supply companies (Escoms) had proposed an average hike of Rs 1.20 per unit (17.37 per cent) for all the consumer categories. But the commission allowed an increase of 33 paise per unit (4.8 per cent).Meena said that the hike has been entailed due to a 16 per cent increase in power purchase cost, 20 per cent increase in operation and management costs, 12 per cent increase in interest and finance charges, 22 per cent increase in depreciation and other pending deficits amounting to over Rs 2,000 crores.The KERC also said that it was encouraging Time of Day tariff, when the tariff will see a hike of Rs 1 per unit during peak hours, both in the morning and evening. The consumers who utilise power during non-peak hours will be eligible for a subsidy ranging from Rs 1 to Rs 2 per unit, reports The Hindu.According to reports, the commission has also reduced the number of slabs in the urban and rural areas, with an increase of 25 paise. So, a BESCOM consumer in urban areas will pay Rs 3.75 per unit instead of Rs 3.50 for the usage of 30 units. And electricity consumption beyond 30 units will attract a higher slab rate.The urban areas will have to pay an additional 5 paise as per the hiked rates of BESCOM when compared to the rural areas as Bescom consumers will pay Rs 3.65/unit for the first slab, whereas other Escoms will charge Rs 3.35/unit to Rs 3.60/unit in the rural areas.last_img read more

Texas Oil Regulator Says Customs And Border Protection Proposal Would Harm Industry

first_img Share 00:00 /01:15 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: X Berardo62 via Flickr / CC BY-SA 2.0The energy industry and ship builders are at odds over a Customs and Border Protection proposal.Could Homeland Security slow down the oil industry?A Texas oil and gas regulator thinks so. He says a proposal from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) could get in the way of offshore drilling.CBP wants to rethink how it interprets part of a law called the “Jones Act.” It basically requires ships conducting business along the coast to be American ships, meaning American-made.For decades, the government has allowed certain ships to be exempt from the law, but a proposal from CBP issued in the last few days of the Obama Administration would crack down on the leniency. More ships in the gulf would have to be U.S. ships.Texas Railroad Commissioner Ryan Sitton says that would be a big cost for oil companies that use cheaper foreign ships, a cost they couldn’t immediately absorb.“So you’re gonna cut off some of the markets because they can’t afford to transport the product,” he says, adding that there just aren’t enough American ships in the gulf to keep the oil business humming.“And even if you went and ordered them all today, we’re talking years to get them all built and manufactured.”Sitton wants the proposal withdrawn, as does the energy industry. But ship builders love it. They describe it as an America-first policy that would support American jobs.Which puts the Trump Administration in a tricky spot. They have until mid-May to decide whether to prioritize energy development or American manufacturing, big Trump talking points that are seemingly at odds in this situation. Listenlast_img read more

City Council Getting Back To Normal

first_imgIt was a busy week for members of the Baltimore City Council. In the aftermath of the riots they could be seen during television interviews on channels from MSNBC to CNN, talking about what is next for Baltimore, how the city is holding up and what the large peaceful rallies held over the weekend meant.Councilman Brandon M. Scott, District 2, has been at the forefront of calling on members of the community to be responsible and show one another love. He is calling for City Council hearings on the safety of the police wagon fleet. His resolution calls for Anthony Batts, police commissioner, to appear before the City Council and discuss how people transported in police wagons can be kept safer. Freddie Gray, of course, was severely injured while being transported in a police wagon. The resolution was adopted by the City Council and now goes to the Police Department for their response.The other notable piece of news from last week’s City Council meeting was a resolution introduced by Bill Henry, District 4, seeking to call on Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake to increase funding for Community Schools. There are 20 Community Schools in Baltimore in each district except for District 8. Community Schools offer additional resources for students as well as the surrounding community. These resources can range from increased mental health care and help for homeless families to health screenings, among others.Community Schools currently receive $6 million in funding and the resolution calls for an increase to $10 million.last_img read more

Echoing Silence

first_imgIt is often said that photography is about capturing souls and not smiles. “We are one!” believes Italian artiste, Attilio Tripodi who makes one introspect and visualize landscapes and human emotions in a new way as one takes a walk through his photography exhibition titled, ‘Temporary Solitudes’ at Indian International Centre (IIC) fromJuly 6-16, 11 am to 7pm in the national Capital.“We share our lives with those around us, through our thoughts, actions and emotions as human nature drives us to be sociable. We are connected to each other. We have more or less consolidated our material reality, but we are not often aware of our inner spiritual nature or worse, we deny it,” says Tripodi pointing towards one of his captures. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’ One would witness lines, colours and graphic elements synced in such a way that enhances the ability of an image to communicate. There are around 50 photographs captured in different countries. Also, you will mark only one person in every picture with prevailing landscapes and various angles to rouse emotions.Elaborating on the exhibition…‘Temporary Solitudes’ is my humble gaze of a fragment of humanity. I feel that I am a part of it. I am conscious of the invisible thread that connects the whole of humanity, and that whenever a person gets in the way of its evolution, the benefit is collective.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixI do not wish to disseminate any message but only interpret things and sounds that surround me with a tool called photography. While selecting images for the exhibition, I preferred the ones that matched my aesthetic sense – lines, shapes, and textures can be seen in all my photos.Inspired by human landscapesI always prefer ‘human landscapes’ in my photographs, an innate vision. I like to photograph people immersed in their daily lives, as I too am a part of it and especially because in my journey of inner and spiritual growth, I have learned that we are all connected to each other. I imagined that the protagonists of my photos deliberately seek the solitude required to create a contact with one’s own soul, a necessary prelude to begin a process of growth of evolution. On capturing emotions…Capturing expressions, joy, smiles, awkwardness, signs of aging that draw and redraw faces of different people excite me. I love watching people and capturing them. It paves a way to see myself, through this endless game of mirrors that is life.The journeyIt took me a year and a half to focus on this concept. The images came in a spontaneous and natural way. There were no such challenges, everything just fell in place. I also found some photos taken a few years ago that very well amalgamated with the other photos of the collection as they in sync with its aesthetic expression.Black and white huesMy photos usually express liveliness through colours. For ‘Temporary Solitudes’, I preferred using monochrome as it connects to the theme which is meditative and intimate. The images express a feeling of vitality which unites them, that perhaps have a tinge of melancholy but never sad. I preferred minimal shots without any disturbing elements to accentuate the introspective aspect.Art is never static It is not very different from my previous works. As the Talmud (central text of Rabbinic Judaism) states, “We do not see things as they are, but we see things as we are,” I believe it affirms the uniqueness of each person, despite the similarities. Currently, I’m working on a completely different collection, dedicated to symbols and contradictions of human nature, without moralizing or judging, with a touch of vibrant creativity. Photography is an art and art is a dynamic concept, always moving, never static.last_img read more

Art has the power to unite people across the globe. India believes in the culture of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam which means the entire universe is one, which is an integral part of the Indian cultural and theatrical tradition,” said Venkaiah Naidu.Speaking on the occasion Mahesh Sharma stated, “Art gives the message of togetherness, brotherhood, and friendship, and portrays social issues to convey the message to common people.

Communities flee eruption at Guatemalas Volcano of Fire

first_img<< Previous PostNext Post >> Tuesday, November 20, 2018 By: The Associated Press Communities flee eruption at Guatemala’s Volcano of Fire GUATEMALA CITY — About 4,000 residents fled Guatemala’s volcano of Fire Monday as red-hot rock and ash spewed into the sky and cascaded down the slopes toward an area devastated by a deadly eruption earlier this year.Guatemala’s volcanology unit said that explosions from the 12,300-foot (3,763-meter) high mountain shook homes with “constant sounds similar to a train locomotive.”Incandescent material burst as high as 1,000 metres (3,200 feet) above the crater and flows of hot rock and ash extended nearly 2 miles (3 kilometres) down one flank of the volcano. Hot blasts of pyroclastic material pushed down canyons on the slopes, while a column of ash rose nearly 23,000 feet (7,000 metres) above sea level and drifted toward Guatemala City to the east.Hundreds of families heeded the call of disaster co-ordination authorities to evacuate 10 communities, piling into yellow school buses for trips to shelters. The national disaster commission said 3,925 people had been evacuated by early Monday. As the hours passed, however, the intensity of the volcano’s activity decreased and many decided to return to their homes or seek shelter with friends or family.More news:  A new low for no-frills flying: easyJet assigns backless seat to passengerThe Volcano of Fire is one of the most active in Central America and an eruption in June killed 194 people. Another 234 are officially missing, although organizations supporting the communities have insisted there are thousands of missing persons.It spewed more ash and hot rock in October, prompting warnings for the nearby communities.The biggest danger from the volcano are lahars, a mixture of ash, rock, mud and debris, that can bury entire towns. On Monday, there had been no reports of such flows reaching populated areas, though authorities were taking no chances; they were harshly criticized for not calling for evacuations earlier in June.Four shelters have been set up for evacuees. Dora Caal, 26, and five members of her family took refuge under a nylon tent at a sports stadium in the nearby town of Escuintla.“Last night we heard the volcano roar, you could see fire, we couldn’t sleep,” said Caal, whose town of El Rodeo was largely evacuated.More news:  Virgin Voyages de-activates Quebec accounts at FirstMates agent portal“At dawn we said we’d better get out, we were afraid,” Caal said as the sun beat down fiercely at the improvised shelter. People like Caal are still reeling from the effects of the June eruption.“Back then I lost my job at a farm that was on the slopes of the volcano. They closed it and we can’t work there anymore,” she said.Enma Hernandez, 42, left her home in El Rodeo to evacuate, but her 20-year-old son stayed behind to protect the family home from looters. In fact, many men stayed behind in the town; there were mainly women and children at the shelter. Tags: Guatemala, Volcano Sharelast_img read more

Pascal Lamy Broadcaster lobby group Broadcast Netw

first_imgPascal LamyBroadcaster lobby group Broadcast Network Europe (BNE), under the banner of the Wider Spectrum Group, has called on the European Commission to provide greater long-term legal certainty that sufficient spectrum will be made available to preserve terrestrial broadcasting alongside mobile broadband.In an open letter to EC president Jean-Claude Juncker, the group called on the EC “to consider the impact of frequency allocation on European jobs and growth” and “the possible consequences for the media, creative and cultural sector, now recognised as one of Europe’s top three sectors by growth and employment”.In the letter, the group said it hoped for a consensual outcome to spectrum allocation and said there is a strong case for co-existence between terrestrial broadcasting and mobile broadband services.It expressed surprised that the EC’s reported draft communication on the Digital Single Market appears to incorporate “so few traces” of the Lamy report on the future of the UHF – 700MHz – band, which made a strong case for the continued relevance of DTT. The group said that the draft communication “appears not to make the connection between spectrum allocation and local creative and cultural jobs, media pluralism and diversity”.In an annex to its letter, the Wider Spectrum Group said that moving away from DTT would result in a loss of €38.5 billion to the European economy even before any impact on the EU’s creative industries was taken into consideration.last_img read more

Justins note America is in unprecedented territo

first_imgJustin’s note: America is in unprecedented territory.For starters, the average American is over $40,000 in debt… and that’s grown 15% over the past four years. Meanwhile, wages and the U.S. economy aren’t keeping up…Stansberry Research founder Porter Stansberry believes there is only one possible outcome: a “Debt Jubilee.”That’s why today, we’re sharing the first chapter of Porter’s book The American Jubilee. In it, he reveals the four conditions that would bring about a debt jubilee, and shows just how close we are to one taking place…By Porter Stansberry, founder, Stansberry ResearchIf you study American history, you’ll see that Debt Jubilees occur only in a unique type of extreme political environment.After all, a Jubilee is a radical measure.The government essentially steals money from one group and hands it to another.In order for this to occur, four elements must be in place… Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?We have the largest gap ever between the rich and poor…We have huge increases in violent protests about immigration and race…We have a completely ineffective government…And we have extreme animosity toward the “elites” from both the left and right.Check… check… check… and check.There’s actually a name for this type of political and social phenomenon.It’s called “populism.” And it emerges every 30 to 40 years. There must be cultural threats from those with different values or from outsiders (in other words, minority populations and immigrants). During the 1930s, just like today, the wealthy acquired a much higher-than-normal percentage of our nation’s wealth…And in both the 1930s and today, the percentage of the population who were foreign-born was higher than normal… causing animosity among the “common man.”Just like today, the economic conditions of the 1930s caused extreme income inequality.Back then, the top 10% earned 45% of all income (compared with 50% today) and owned 85% of the wealth (compared with 75% today).Even the political characters are the same…The 1930s saw a popular socialist presidential candidate just like we had in 2016. Huey Long was a former governor of Louisiana and a U.S. senator. He proposed an income cap at $1 million… a 30-hour federal work week… and 100% income taxes at the highest level.Long even established 27,000 “Share Our Wealth” clubs around the country and had a radio show that was listened to by one in five Americans.So where did this all lead?It led to America’s most dramatic Debt Jubilee to date…Regards,Porter Stansberry Founder, Stansberry ResearchJustin’s note: According to Porter, a financial revolution is already starting to take place across America. Many aren’t aware of it. But the Charlottesville riots… the burning of inner cities… the resurgence of neo-Nazi groups… and the “Black Lives Matter” protests are all signs that a Jubilee is imminent.But you still have time to protect yourself. Porter and his team of analysts have put together a presentation to explain everything. You’ll learn how the Jubilee will play out, as well as the steps you can take to survive… and prosper… once it hits. Watch it here.In Case You Missed It…On April 26, 2018, Casey Research is hosting a pivotal event… the Pot Stock Millionaire Summit.At this summit, Doug Casey, along with Crisis Investing editor Nick Giambruno, will discuss five frontier marijuana stocks set to soar as legalization gets underway. These stocks are the best ways to get in on what Forbes calls “the best ground-floor opportunity we’ve seen since the early days of the internet.” Sign up right here. Populist movements are characterized by extreme anger at the government, at the wealthy, at the establishments, and at “newcomers” and minorities.As the director of an Alabama group that tracks violence and hate crimes around the country told Newsweek in June 2017: “There has been a massive explosion of violence across the country.”I’m sure you’ve seen this yourself.The hatred and anger is like nothing I’ve witnessed in my lifetime. And it’s coming from all sides. A member of my staff went to a book reading in Baltimore by one of the most famous left-wing authors in the country.The author told the crowd that he wished he could go back in time and smother Donald Trump in his crib as a baby… or convince Trump’s mother to have an abortion.This epitomizes the political and social environment in America today.From the protests and marches… to the refusals to stand during the national anthem…From Black Lives Matter to the anti-immigration movements… to the rejuvenation of white supremacists… to the tripling of membership in the Democratic Socialists of America.It’s clear we are in the middle of an extreme “populist” period in America.Ray Dalio, one of the richest men in America, studied the political environments of the past 100 years and concluded in March 2017…The last time that it [populism] existed as a major force in the world was in the 1930s, when most countries became populist. Over the last year, it has again emerged as a major force.Look at this chart. The big spikes show when populist politicians got the most votes in America and abroad…So, what does this all mean?It proves that what we’re experiencing today is eerily similar to what happened in the 1930s… right before the biggest and most radical Debt Jubilee in American history. The economic comparison is stunning.Interest rates hit zero leading up to each of these periods…The government went into mega money-printing mode during both periods…Printing money caused the stock market and other risky assets to boom during both periods… boosting the wealth of the rich, but doing nothing for the poor… — How I almost lost $1,000,000 in 8 hours In 8 hours, I almost lost my entire $1,000,000 life savings. But by using this “secret key” technique… I saved all my money… generated a fortune… and got to retire at 42, with more security than I’d ever imagined. I’ve been quietly using it for the past 26 years to make millions. Click here and see my “secret key” in action.

That type of speed is key.Here’s what he told me:Most ordinary investors miss these opportunities because they don’t know what professional investors like hedge funds and institutions are doing. But to be fair, these big-money firms work hard to keep their activity quiet – because until they’re done, it doesn’t help them if people know what they’re buying. That’s why speed is key.In his most recent Palm Beach Trader issue, Jason identified a small tech company that institutions are snapping up quickly.

Semis got smoked last year and were essentially a toxic wasteland… And we noticed a major repricing of semis earlier this month with some stellar earnings and heavy institutional accumulation.As usual, Jason nailed that call…The sector has shot up nearly 30% in this year’s first quarter – its best start ever. And the overall market has followed.But if you think you’ve missed the boat on semiconductors, think again. Jason says his system is continuing to signal institutional buying in the sector. And that means more gains ahead for investors in these companies…Big Money Is Piling InRegular Palm Beach Daily readers know that we call Jason our Wall Street insider because he spent nearly two decades as a trader (including being a partner at Cantor Fitzgerald).But few people know this: In 2012, his firm helped create Tradeworx.The name might not ring a bell. But if you’ve read about high-speed trading in The Wall Street Journal or The New York Times – or watched the 60 Minutes special on it – you actually do know about Tradeworx.It was the fastest high-speed trading system on Wall Street – making trades in less than a second. But here’s the thing…After Jason left Cantor Fitzgerald, he created his own breakthrough system – one that can spot the biggest (and most lucrative) trades on Wall Street… up to a month in advance.That same system flagged institutional buying in semiconductors earlier this year. And it’s proven to be highly accurate on a number of other occasions, too. (For example, it predicted the sell-off in February 2018 and the rally we saw at the start of this year.)

Our friends over at Palm Beach Research Group have an interesting story to share about a reversal in a little-known – but very important – sector of the market.Nick Rokke and Palm Beach Trader editor Jason Bodner explain why this reversal is bullish for stocks… indicates market health… and presents a huge money-making opportunity for investors.Read on to see what it is and what we can buy to profit today…By Nick Rokke, analyst, The Palm Beach Daily Toward the end of last year, semiconductor stocks tanked…Now, semiconductors are the microchips that make electronic devices work. (They’re also called the “brains” of machines.) From toasters and smartphones… to computers and complex networking equipment… the modern world couldn’t operate without them.And because the companies making them are the first part of the supply chain, they’re often the first to feel the pain when the economy slows down.In fact, as you can see in the chart below, the sector is so important that it’s widely considered a leading indicator of market health:In the second half of 2018, semiconductor companies crashed 24%. An overall 19% market meltdown soon followed.The carnage was so bad, Palm Beach Research Group’s Wall Street insider Jason Bodner called semis a “toxic wasteland.”But today, we’re seeing a reversal in this important sector.

For the eightandahalf years she spent in prison

first_imgFor the eight-and-a-half years she spent in prison, Kristan Kerr looked forward to one thing every month: a visit from her daughter, Chloe. Visit by visit, she watched Chloe grow from a toddler into a young adult.”I just watched her grow all the way up,” Kerr says. “One visit, she couldn’t read, and then the next visit she was reading something to me.”Convicted for aggravated robbery in 2011 – she was the driver — Kerr says she wasn’t making good choices back then, and it meant missing out on a lot.She and Chloe would talk on the phone and send letters and visit, but she says you can’t do the physical, nurturing part of parenting from prison. Even though Kerr trusted that Chloe was being cared for by her grandmother, she says you never stop worrying about your kid.There are more than 225,000 women behind bars, according to the most recent 2017 federal statistics. Half are in state and federal prisons, the other half in local jails. It’s actually a slight decrease, coming after years of ballooning incarceration among women.From 1980 to 2016, the country saw a 700% increase in the number of women behind bars. Exactly how many are mothers isn’t well tracked, but a survey of women in Texas prisons showed more than 80% of them are moms.Lawmakers across the country are now considering ways to send fewer moms with minor children to jail and prison, and to help preserve parent-child bonds when they’re locked up.In Texas, lawmakers are considering bills that would promote diversion programs, probation or other community-based sentences over jail or prison time to avoid breaking up families. Tennessee recently passed legislation to do that.There were some tough times for Chloe, who’s now 12. It was hard seeing other kids with their moms, but she says it’s been good since her mother was released in October. Not that it’s been easy, exactly.”It’s been a little bit challenging because I’ve still got to get used to her, I’ve got to learn her, get comfortable with her,” Chloe says. But, she adds, “I’m happier now that she’s here, that I get to see her every day.””Many of the women, once they get arrested, are scrambling to find someone to take care of their kids,” says Michele Deitch, who studies prison issues at the University of Texas at Austin. “So a lot of kids get shuttled from place to place, and if they’re not able to find a place for them, then many of the kids end up in foster care.”Other states are looking at incarcerating parents closer to their children, and expanding visitation so kids can see mom or dad more often. Incarcerated parents who have stronger relationships with their kids, Deitch says, behave better while inside, and are less likely to commit future crimes after they’re released.”It’s really critical for the parent to not lose touch with their child, and to stay involved and to feel like they can make a difference in the child’s life to be aware of what’s happening to them,” Deitch says.Growing up with their incarcerated parents can be damaging to their children. That’s part of the reason children with incarcerated parents are more likely to end up in the criminal justice system themselves, according to Dallas lawyer Brittany Barnett. She launched Girls Embracing Mothers, a nonprofit aimed at improving outcomes for girls and their incarcerated mothers, after her own mother was sent to prison.”Even though I was a young adult when my mom went to prison, my sister and I were devastated by her incarceration,” Barnett says. “It not only impacts the person in prison, but the children are the hidden victims of their parents’ crimes.”Kristan and Chloe Kerr took part in the Girls Embracing Mothers program. Barnett says she’s optimistic about reform legislation, but hopes it’s just a first step toward a more effective and less punitive justice system.”These women aren’t bad women, they made bad choices,” Barnett says.Texas Rep. James White, a Republican, says the crimes women commit are often different from their male peers. He heads the House Committee on Corrections, and introduced a bill to address issues faced by women in prison, including pregnancy and childbirth.”I hear a lot of offenses that are linked to domestic violence, so they may stab their spouse that’s abusing them and their kids,” White says, “young women that have experienced repeated sexual abuse from a family member, women who have fallen into the trap of addiction.”Researchers agree that a history of trauma underlies a lot of the criminal behavior that lands women in jails and prisons. Kristan Kerr says many of the moms in prison with her struggled with psychological and behavioral issues.”Women, they love their kids,” she says. “Maybe they’re stuck with addiction but that’s a sickness, but that doesn’t mean they don’t want their children.”Since she’s been out, Kerr has been working through a list of goals she set for herself to rebuild her life. She’s got a job, got her driver’s license, and she’s spending lots of time with her daughter. Copyright 2019 KERA. To see more, visit KERA.last_img read more

But there are very few bead-spring model systems that you can actually visualize. That’s why this work came about.”Microscopic solids suspended in a liquid like the fat particles in milk or pigment particles in paint are examples of a colloidal system. Biswal said there has been great interest in creating colloidal molecules, and the Rice experiment is a step in that direction.To make complex colloidal macromolecules, the researchers started with commercially available, iron-rich polystyrene beads coated with a protein, streptavidin. The beads are charged to repel each other but can connect together with springy DNA fragments. The chains formed when the researchers exposed the beads to a magnetic field.“We use the field to control particle positioning, let the DNA link the beads together and turn the field off,” Biswal said, explaining how the chains self-assemble. “This is a nice system for polymers, because it’s large enough to visualize individual beads and positioning, but it’s small enough that thermal (Brownian) forces still dictate the chain’s motion.”As expected, when they made chains with short (about 500 base pairs) DNA bridges, the macromolecule remained stiff. Longer linkers (up to 8,000 base pairs) appeared to coil up between the beads, allowing for movement in the chain. Surprisingly, when the researchers reapplied the magnetic field to stretch the long links, they once again became rigid.“Our vision of what’s happening is that DNA allows some wiggle room between particles and gives the chain elasticity,” Biswal said. “But if the particles are pulled far enough apart, you stress the bridge quite a bit and reduce the freedom it has to move.”Being able to engineer such a wide range of flexibilities allows for more complex materials that can be actuated with magnetic fields, Biswal said.“This research is interesting because until now, people haven’t been able to make flexible chains like this,” Byrom said. “We want to be able to explain what’s happening across a broad range of polymers, but if you can only make rigid chains, it sort of limits what you can talk about.”Now that they can create polymer chains with predictable behavior, the researchers plan to study how the chains react to shifting magnetic fields over time, as well as how the chains behave in fluid flows.The paper’s co-authors are Rice alum Patric Han and undergraduate Michael Savory.

Marijuana Workers Now Outnumber Bakers and Other Common Careers

first_img Next Article Add to Queue –shares For an industry still in its early stages, legal marijuana already has surpassed many other businesses in generating jobs.In a new report called the Marijuana Business Factbook 2017, the marijuana industry is reported to have created 165,000 to 230,000 full- and part-time jobs in the United States. According to the report, that means there are more people working in the marijuana industry than there are bakers, dental hygienists and massage therapists.The job numbers include those working at cannabis retail stores, growing facilities, marijuana-infused product companies, testing labs and ancillary businesses such as transportation and security. The numbers represent “marijuana’s rapid transformation out of the black market and into a viable economic force,” according to the report.Related: Sorry, But No You Can’t Smoke Marijuana on the Las Vegas Strip Yet.Practical mattersThe numbers also underscore one of the two practical considerations for political leaders that go beyond the decades-old “war against drugs” debate that continues at the federal level.The first is that legalized marijuana generates huge amounts of tax income for state and local governments. For example, Oregon expects to reap $200 million in adult-use marijuana taxes by 2019, and that money will go to schools, roads and law enforcement.The tax dollars generated by Colorado and other western states have politicians in other cash-starved states, such as Illinois, hoping to legalize marijuana to help balance governmental budgets.The second, which the report focused on, is job creation. Nationwide, the numbers are expected to skyrocket as California, Massachusetts and Nevada allow adult-use sales and another big state, Florida, moves forward with a regulated medical marijuana industry.Though all the new legal marijuana markets will take time to fully develop, “they have the potential to create tens of thousands of new jobs in the marijuana industry,” according to the report.Putting it in perspectiveMarijuana also has been a boon to small businesses. The majority of the jobs in marijuana are concentrated on smaller operations that only need a handful of employees.Part of the reason for this is the fact marijuana remains an illegal drug at the federal level. Because legalization has happened in a state-by-state manner, large marijuana companies employing hundreds of workers have not materialized.Related: NBA Champion John Salley Talks About the ‘Seed to Sale’ Process for Cannabis BusinessBut the jobs continue to multiply. Assuming that most marijuana industry workers do not require a college degree, here are some other, similar occupations that the marijuana industry has either surpassed or approached in the number of workers:Short-order cooks (181,600)Electronics Installers and Repairers (136,100)Library Assistants (210,700)Boilermakers (17,400)Sheet metal workers (141,000)Again, the employment numbers will only grow as legal marijuana operations go into effect in new states. Moving forward on the debate about marijuana, expect politicians to start referencing the economic benefits of cannabis over long-held objections.

first_imgApple Apple COO Jeff Williams also said analysts ‘don’t really understand the cost of what we do.’ Apple Says It Does Not Want to be an ‘Elitist’ Company as iPhone Prices Continue to Rise Next Article Apple’s COO Jeff Williams told students in North Carolina on Friday that Apple does not want to be an “elitist” company.As reported by Apple Insider, Williams gave a short speech at Elon University followed by a Q&A session. A student asked Williams about Apple’s plans to lower iPhone prices, citing a recent report which claimed the iPhone costs significantly less to manufacture than its sale price.”The stories that come out about the cost of our products [have been] the bane of my existence from the beginning of time, including our early days,” said Williams. “Analysts don’t really understand the cost of what we do and how much care we put into making our products.”Williams said he’s cognizant of the iPhone’s climbing price point,which means it has fallen behind in key markets where consumers have less disposable income. In India for example, Apple commands just 3% of market share.”We do not want to be an elitist company. That’s not — we want to be an egalitarian company, and we’ve got a lot of work going on in developing markets,” Williams said.His comments come after Apple has continued to raise the price of iPhones. The average selling price of the phones has increased by nearly 27% to $793 since 2010, helped in no small part by the $1,000 iPhone X.

(Editor)Apr 12 2019The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus announced the funding of $3.4 million by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to create the most advanced living mimicry of a human lung to identify toxicity and cancer-causing potential of emerging tobacco products.To study the effects of a human smoker, the research team led by Kambez H. Benam, DPhil, Assistant Professor at the CU School of Medicine, will create the first-in-kind multi-cellular three-dimensional (3D) living structure of a human lung containing cells that naturally line our conducting airways. This includes the physiological scaffold – also known as extracellular matrix, on top of which the airway lining sits, the soldiers of our immune defense – also known as leukocytes, and the matrix-embedded stromal cells that are critical for development and resolution of organ injury.Related StoriesNanoparticles used to deliver CRISPR gene editing tools into the cellNew study reveals ‘clutch’ proteins responsible for putting T cell activation ‘into gear’Bacteria in the birth canal linked to lower risk of ovarian cancerThis microengineered human lung will allow a better understanding of the harm of e-cigarettes and hookah by evaluating the impact on genes, proteins, pathways, and cell/organ function. In the past, laboratory animals have been widely used to assess the effects of conventional cigarette smoke and more recently e-cigarette vapors; however, translation of findings to human has been challenging.”Providing the next generation of a human lung model to compare the toxicity of emerging products, particularly hookah and e-cigarettes, will help identify dangerous and carcinogenic formulations,” said Dr. Benam. “This study has an unprecedented potential to advance the available toolkits for FDA to better protect and promote public health concerns around tobacco products.”Tobacco-related products such as e-cigarettes and hookah are drastically gaining popularity; but, the biological impact of their emissions on human lung is not well characterized.This project adds unique capabilities to Dr. Benam’s work on recently developed technological platforms, namely ‘Small Airway-on-a-Chip’ and ‘Breathing-Smoking Human Lung-on-a-Chip’ published in Nature Methods and Cell Systems.With the passage of the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act in June 2009, the FDA acquired the authority to regulate manufacturing, marketing, and distribution of tobacco products in order to protect public health. As of 2016, FDA finalized a rule extending its regulatory authority to cover all tobacco products, including waterpipe tobacco.last_img read more
