Earthquake preparedness in light of California quakes

CARBONDALE (WSIL) – Unlike tornadoes and some other natural disasters, earthquakes hit suddenly and without a warning. Business owners and workers say there is always one thing you can do and that is to prepare.  Bryan Bruner the manager at Kohl’s in Carbondale says he’s never experienced a major earthquake in southern Illinois. Despite that, he is prepared in case one does hit. “I think it’s a responsibility that any store manager should take. We care about our customers, we care about our employees,” says Bruner.  He says all natural disasters should be taken seriously, ”Knowing your store, where’s your safe zone. Our employees have their designated areas with flashlights. We’re ready to go just in case if we are to lose power.” Residents in southern California experienced a 7.1 magnitude earthquake last week. That is serving as a reminder to people living along the New Madrid fault line that earthquakes can happen here in Illinois.  Jim Simpson owns an insurance company in Carbondale. He says homeowners in our region don’t usually get earthquake protection, but he recommends it. Illinois Emergency Management A...

Text description provided by the architects. The Little Art Studio is a 1400SF addition to an existing contemporary stucco and glass residence.  The addition of this project to the site provided a backdrop and bookend to an existing desert courtyard and a gathering area surrounding a fire pit.   In order to distinguish the studio from the existing residence, the design allowed the studio to establish its own identity.  The manner in which the addition meets the ground plane was executed in a way that minimizes the disturbance to the existing desert landscape.  The steel beam floor structure and composite concrete deck, is supported by six 36” diameter concrete caissons allowing the studio to “float” over an existing wash by touching the ground in only these six locations.  By spanning over the wash, the design further distinguishes this new addition in contrast to the conventional slab on grade construction of the existing main residence. The cladding of the studio is largely comprised of standard 10 gage 4’ X 12’ tall A606 weathering steel panels.  Using the standard module for the steel panels allowed for minimal preparation and fabrication time. High thermal performing refle...

SAT (Swedish Analog Technologies) Begins Delivering Four New Pickup Arms

(function () { var s = document.createElement(‘script’); s.type = ‘text/javascript’; s.async = true; s.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://s’ : ‘http://i’) + ‘.po.st/static/v4/post-widget.js#publisherKey=47brf277f5frme7i2kbf’; var x = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; x.parentNode.insertBefore(s, x); })(); Both 9″ models share the original SAT arm’s mounting interface, geometry and external dimensions and therefore can be “drop in” replacements for those wishing to move to the new arms. The two longer arms are obviously not “drop in” replacements. The more affordable LM series brings the original’s performance profile to vinyl enthusiasts thanks to more efficient production processes and different materials that allow for less complex assembly techniques. The CF1 series expands and improves upon what the original SAT Pickup Arm achieved and is said to provide across the performance spectrum improvements mechanically and sonically. The LM and CF1 series incorporate different arm tubes and head shells and feature different sma...

Rachel Roddy’s recipe for potato, parmesan and salami cakes | A kitchen in Rome | Food

Growing up in England in the 80s, my mum used to drive to a village in Hertfordshire called Whitwell to buy bunches of watercress from Wells farm. We had a Renault 5 with a slippery back seat and lively suspension, so we would bounce as we crossed a humpback bridge to get to the farm. Through the car window, my brother, sister and I, sticky and argumentative, would often see the backs of two of the Sansom brothers as they picked watercress from emerald-green waterbeds that had been cultivated for more than 200 years. It was farms like Wells that grew some of the millions of bunches that were carted up to London in the 1800s and 1900s. In her essay about the watercress girls, Angela Clutton writes about how it was loved by the wealthy, but needed by workers, who ate it for breakfast in sandwiches, and the poor, who ate it with nothing. She also writes about the young watercress girls and their wicker baskets of green and their early-morning cries of “Wo-orter-crease, wo-orter-crease”. Back home in the 80s, Dad would stuff watercress in his sandwiches, its soft leaves and succulent stems pungent with mustard oils, making it both a salad and a seasoning as good as mustard. It was o...

McLaren 720S Debuts New Autonomous, Electric Variant … For Kids

Your kid might never own a real McLaren, but he or she can at least experience one with the new McLaren 720S Ride-On. The tiny car is available to order now, and prices start at £315 ($400 at current exchange rates). If your little tyke already McLaren’s previous P1 ride-on, this model would make quite an addition to his or her collection of pint-sized machines. The little McLaren maintains many of the features from the real thing, including functional dihedral doors. The interior even has an infotainment screen, and it comes pre-loaded with children’s songs. If kids would prefer to hear something else, there are SD card and USB ports. Pressing the accelerator pedal causes a simulated engine sound to play from the speakers since the ride-on’s electric motor can’t compare to the noise from the real thing’s twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8. There are working brake lights, too. If parents want to control where their kid is going, there’s also a remote control for the vehicle for them to use, making this McLaren practically an autonomous vehicle. At official McLaren retailers, the 720S ride-on is available in the brand’s trademark Papaya Spark orange...

While drones have been used for military purposes in one form or another since World War

While drones have been used for military purposes in one form or another since World War II, when they served as gunnery training targets,[1] their use increased greatly after the September 11, 2001 attacks. Drones are capable of highly advanced surveillance,[2] and already used by law enforcement. They can carry various kinds of electronic equipment, including live-feed video cameras, infrared cameras, heat sensors, and radar.[3] Some military versions can stay in air for hours or days at a time, and their cameras can scan entire cities, or zoom in to focus on specific small objects from far away. They can also carry Wi-Fi crackers and fake cell phone towers that can determine location or intercept texts and phone calls. Drone manufacturers themselves acknowledge that they often are used to carry weapons such as Tasers or rubber bullets.[4] The MEMRI Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor Project has been monitoring jihadis’ use of drones over the past decade, and has seen their advances in research and development culminating in the Islamic State (ISIS) Ninawa province’s release, on January 24, 2017, of a 40-minute video showing its new weaponized drones (see The Islam...
