Aiming to ensure that child safety seats are correctly installed, a free car-seat safety check has

Aiming to ensure that child safety seats are correctly installed, a free car-seat safety check has been set for June 8 at the St. Lawrence Rehabilitation Center. The car-seat safety check will be held from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the St. Lawrence Rehabilitation Center by a certified technician. The car-seat and booster seat safety check program is being co-sponsored by the St. Lawrence Rehabilitation Center, which is the lead organization of the Mercer County Coalition of Safe Kids, the Lawrence Township Office of Emergency Management and the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office. The technician will give a free inspection of the car seat or booster seat, examining it for correct use and installation. Children will receive free activity books. Under state law, children who are under 4 years old and weigh less than 40 pounds must be in a rear-facing car seat with a five-point harness. Once a child turns 4, the youngster may ride in a front-facing car seat equipped with a five-point harness. Children may transition to a booster seat when they outgrow the car seat. They must use a booster seat until they reach 8 years old and 57 inches in height. At that point, the child may sit on the s...

This novella (reading time: 2 hours) is from the collection Hieroglyph: Stories and Visions for a Better Future, edited by Ed Finn and Kathryn Cramer. It is nominated for a Locus award and a Sturgeon Award. Here’s a thing I didn’t know: there are some cancers that can only be diagnosed after a week’s worth of lab work. I didn’t know that. Then I went to the doctor to ask her about my pesky achy knee that had flared up and didn’t go away like it always had, just getting steadily worse. I’d figured it was something torn in there, or maybe I was getting the arthritis my grandparents had suffered from. But she was one of those doctors who hadn’t gotten the memo from the American health-care system that says that you should only listen to a patient for three minutes, tops, before writing him a referral and/or a prescription and firing him out the door just as the next patient was being fired in. She listened to me, she took my history, she wrote down the names of the anti-inflammatories I’d tried, everything from steroids to a climbing buddy’s heavy-duty prescription NSAIDs, and gave my knee a few cautious prods. “Yeah,” I said. “Good thing, too. I read that knee replacement’s going ...

A Summerville, South Carolina, job shop invests in HORN USA, WTO, and Doosan for large tool

A Summerville, South Carolina, job shop invests in HORN USA, WTO, and Doosan for large tool life improvements. Faced with an aggressive 400,000 parts-per-year order, a Summerville, South Carolina- based job shop needed to develop a process that would give the required cycle time and tool life to maintain the desired profitability. The task was to machine a high-volume component made from 8620 steel that was designed with a complex internal spline. The job shop owner initially purchased two Doosan lathes from Machinery Solutions Inc., a machine tool distributor in Lexington, South Carolina, (no longer representing the Doosan line) and a standard SBU105 broaching system from HORN USA Inc. Early in the project, it was observed that the broaching unit originally installed with the machines was not nearly rigid enough, so other options were discussed. “We started with a standard broaching insert, and we began to have issues with tool life because of a substantial amount of chatter,” explains Michael Morgan, application/sales engineer at HORN USA, Franklin, Tennessee. “Our tool would chatter when used in the reciprocating broaching unit, but would not chatter when using just the machi...

The Grand Paris Express project aims to improve transport arround the Île-de- France region surrounding Paris.

The Grand Paris Express project aims to improve transport arround the Île-de- France region surrounding Paris. The project will see four new rapid transit lines added to the region’s transport network, and extend two more. Overall, the project will include 200km of underground railway and 68 new stations. The new lines are scheduled to open over ten years, between 2020 and 2030. This enormous project will not only extend the metro but will also involve other urban infrastructure being upgraded and extended. The extension of the public transport network alone will cost €35bn. The growth in residential property will double at a rate of 70,000 new apartments per annum. Mediaco supplied new Liebherr LG 1750 for the project. “Like all crane contractors in the Paris area, we are expecting a healthy rate of orders over the next few years,” says Patrick Meublat, technical director for the crane business at Mediaco in Thieux, a branch offi ce of the company in the north-east of the capital city. “The jobs for our Liebherr cranes around Paris over the next few years will be dominated by assembling and dismantling tunnel drilling machines and hoisting railway and road bridges.” The new mo...

China Tests ‘Guam Killer’ Missile, Claims It Could Strike Moving Carrier

China has test-fired its so-called “Guam killer” ballistic missile, claiming the weapon could strike a moving aircraft carrier, according to a report by the state-run Global Times tabloid. China Central Television on Thursday broadcast footage of the Chinese military launching a pair of DF-26 anti-ship missiles during a live-fire exercise in northwest China, according to a Sunday report by the newspaper. The missile can carry conventional and nuclear warheads, and is capable of “both rapid nuclear counter-strikes and conventional medium-and-long range precision strikes,” Chinese defense ministry spokesman Senior Col. Wi Qian said at an April press conference, according to an official English translation of the transcript. The missile has a “double-cone structure with four fin-like flight control surfaces symmetrically built around the base” meant to help control the weapon’s trajectory, the Global Times report said. Chinese military experts say the missile’s design allows “increased targeting capability, speed and stealth,” according to the newspaper. The report, which attributed its information to unnamed experts, sai...

Ethan’s Law: Parents push for safe gun storage law after son’s death

Kristin and Mike Song are still in disbelief that their 15-year-old son, Ethan, is gone. He accidentally shot himself last year when he was at a friend’s house, playing with guns.  “They were stored in a cardboard box, along with the ammo. There was a gun lock in there but the keys were in there,” Mike Song said. The Songs had no idea the home had firearms and they said careless gun storage cost their son his life. “Ethan pulled the trigger and he was shot in the head, so he really had no chance of survival,” Kristin Song said. A recent study by Harvard researchers estimated up to 32% of youth firearm deaths by unintentional injury and suicide could be prevented if guns were properly locked and stored and ammunition is kept separately. Only three states and Washington, D.C. make unsafe storage, regardless of whether a child ever touches the gun, a crime. There is no federal law for safe gun storage. But now, the Song family is fighting for one in their son’s name. Ethan’s Law was introduced to Congress on Tuesday. It states unsafe storage of a firearm resulting in injury or death of a minor is a crime and punishable by up to five years ...

If the idea of kayaking for free and helping the environment at the same time appeals to you while on vacation, you should head to Hamburg, Bergen and Copenhagen. GreenKayak, a Danish NGO that aims to reduce the amount of waste in rivers and lakes, has just launched new locations in these cities where kayakers can borrow two-person sit-on kayaks free of charge, in exchange for collecting waste on the surface of the water. It also asks its volunteers to share their experiences from the kayak on social media with the hashtags #greenkayak and #miljøkajakken. Plastic waste is a huge problem in countries around the world, and many are taking initiatives to combat environmental pollution it causes, as is the travel industry. GreenKayak also has existing locations were kayaks can be borrowed in Aarhus, Odense and Præstø. 46lbs Electric Trolling Motor The kayaks are highly effective at collecting waste because they are extremely flexible and can get close to areas that are otherwise hard to reach.
