Weather Eye Heat should be brief in our beautiful region

first_imgNot a whole lot new in the weather department today as the summer heat continues at least one more day. Today will be the hottest of the current heat wave, with some cooling tomorrow. And as mentioned here the other day, with a more southerly flow upon us, we will see towering cumulus over the Cascades. Some of the debris from these thunderstorms may drift over the western valleys but at this time, there’s little chance of thundershowers.And our natural air conditioner, ocean air, will seep in and dominate later in the week with some morning clouds and seasonal afternoon temperatures. I had to chuckle to myself Saturday afternoon looking at the upper wind flow on the extended computer models. For August 5th, they had a flow of air coming right down from the north with a trough of low pressure over us. If that were December, we would be talking snow, folks. But then again I have had more than a few laughs this summer with the longer-range forecast models. This certainly has not been a typical year and at this point I wouldn’t be surprised what the great weather machine throws at us. Don’t worry — no snow — but maybe some very cool temperatures. We’ll see.It will be a very pleasant evening tonight to sit and watch the sunset and the moonrise at about the same time. The moon will be chasing the sun, so to speak. And it may have a warm color to it before it gets up too high.I went downtown Saturday morning to the Farmers Market and sitting there eating lunch looking at the green trees, flowers and clear blue sky, reminds me why I live here. It was a tough choice — stay in town, or head to the beach where it was clear and sunny as well. Nothing like the Northwest in summertime.Pat Timm is a local weather specialist.

A VOTERS GUIDE To Selectman Candidate Rob Fasulo

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Rob Fasulo is one of the six candidates competing for two 3-year Selectmen seats in this Saturday’s Town Election.Below are Fasulo’s Closing Argument; his Q&A’s with Wilmington Apple; links to his supporters’ letters to the editor; the full video of the WCTV debate he participated in; his interviews with WCTV (video) and the Town Crier (written); and more.Closing ArgumentThis coming weekend folks in Wilmington will have a very important decision to make. We have a chance right now to decide the ultimate future of our town. Some may argue that our future is already set in stone, I choose to be more optimistic and say I don’t believe that it is. When I look at Wilmington, I remember the community where everyone knew everyone. I remember a community that when asked, hundreds of volunteers came out to build the town’s very first playground (Kids Place) at the Shawsheen School. I can also remember a town that was chock full of open space, woodlands and swamp lands where me and my friends played until the street lights came on. My intention on the board is to preserve that small town charm and characteristic that remain so vividly in my mind for my kids, your kids and future generations.We as a town have never had a more clear difference in direction. The question every voter should ask themselves is, what kind of community do you want your children or grand children to grow up in? My direction will control growth in a manner that will put the least burden on tax payers as well as schools and town departments. I understand the many different challenges residents face because I have aging parents that have lived in Wilmington for a very long time and wish to continue living here. I also have children that will eventually have their own children that may want to remain here.If the voters do chose to elect me, they will get the individual that they have seen on TV, have had conversations with in person, and who wrote the remarks that were printed in the paper or website. I personally write everything that has been printed, and I answer every question with a direct answer, not a “safe” politicians answer. You know exactly who I am and where I stand on an issue. That’s the real me. I will also take this opportunity to say I do not have all the answers, but my parents raised me to listen and then make the best decision that I can, and my career has reiterated that lesson. That being said, I will listen to you, your neighbors and your family for the guidance necessary to be the advocate for you that I believe is needed on this board. My desire to remain unclouded is why I have now self funded both of my campaigns and have no debts to any person that may come calling in the future.Through this election cycle, we have had to answer many questions and I’ve read them all. Suzanne and I are the only candidates that have given actual plans. Under my plans, I have said many times I will address senior housing which will by default address both a new senior center as well as add affordable housing to our dwindling numbers. I will oppose the development of the Olin site until a remediation plan is in place. I will also support legal action against Olin and others which the town has failed to do. I will continue to support and call for tax relief. Wilmington’s taxes are too high which has gotten us to where we are today with empty store fronts and seniors being priced out of town. Further, I will support a comprehensive review of our zoning throughout the town, Economic development and redevelopment will start there. I will also support the town’s acquisition of Sciarappa Farm. This parcel of land is the last large parcel left. Our town will need land in the future for schools, administration buildings, an ice rink, fire sub station, or maybe the people would like a nature preserve with walking paths among the Wildlife of Wilmington. Whatever use is determined by future town meeting votes is the limit, however we won’t have a choice if we don’t acquire the land now.By electing me, you will end the conflicts that seem like business as usual for this administration. If you think back, most of the major issues in front of the board have begun by someone recusing themselves from a discussion. This occurred during the discussion of the purchase of Sciarappa Farm and the Olin development just to name a couple. I would love to talk about the conflicts in the 362 MIddlesex Ave project however by now you know about those so I will move on. By electing me you will restore the full representation that the town lacks so often by the current board.Throughout world history those with ideas different than the status quo have been labeled as being uncivil. We have seen that word thrown about during this election like my kids throw around their toys. My ultimate statement to those that have thrown about this word while insinuating it toward me is first, a thank you. Some of the greatest figures in our history were labeled as being uncivil by those that wished to remain in power over a people, John Adams, Joseph Warren, Paul Revere to name just a few. It humbles me somewhat in being placed in the same boat as these great men. I hope that this election turns out to be a revolution of sorts for Wilmington. We can remain under the rulers that are in power today traveling the same roads and getting the same results, or we can try something new. This is an exciting time for Wilmington because everything is at stake.Suzanne and I need your vote on April 27th to effect this change.On The Issues (Q&A’s with Wilmington Apple)Is the Town of Wilmington heading in the right direction? Explain.Wilmington is a great community, if I did not believe that I would not have remained here my entire life nor would I have decided to raise three kids here. While the community is great our local government has issues that need to be addressed. Over the past year and a half we watched while the town was adamant on putting a detox in the middle of a neighborhood, only feet from a school bus stop and residential neighborhood that they were willing to violate Public Records laws to keep residents from seeing the true process that was taken. We have an $83 million dollar high school that was built with less capacity than its predecessor, our elementary school buildings are so out of date that they cannot put air conditioning units into classroom windows for our children. The town’s OPEB (Other Post Employment Benefits) account is more than $112 million in the red and the unfunded pension liability is approximately $78 million.Are we on the “right track”? These are real dollars that all of us homeowners are going to have to pay at one point or another. Eventually these bills will come due and how is the town going to pay them? With that said, developers are pocket zoning large parcels of land and the town hall knows this. Town officials are also negotiating with the developers on other projects outside of the public eye as we speak. 50 units off Butters Row (confirmed), 77 units (unconfirmed number) at Walpole Woodworkers, 57 units at the intersection of Woburn and Rte. 129 (confirmed). We won’t get into the rumored complexes on Rte. 62 in North Wilmington, Or the bus parking area on Rte. 129 or next to Burger King, or even Phase 3 of the hockey rink that I brought up at a previous selectmen’s meeting. So with all the current debt, after what’s already approved is built, we may now need to somehow make the high school larger, hire more school staff, police officers, fire personnel and apparatus, public works’ staff, and address the other school building needs. I also should mention the dwindling amount of “open space” left in town. When the undeveloped land the town has is gone, it’s gone forever leaving the future needs of the town to be filled by real eminent domain land takings.In the end when all of this is done, our taxes will be so high that they will exclude the possibility of many of our seniors remaining in town and our kids that would like to start their family here will be priced out of the possibility. The direction the town is in it’s growing too fast. When businesses grow too fast they typically fail, Wilmington will be no different and many of our residents that are here now, will not be able to remain. If we care about our seniors staying in town, or our children having the opportunity to remain here with their families we need to act now. Our town government should be advocating sustainable growth and not uncontrolled growth. It also should be working for the residents, not against.Describe your past & present involvement with Wilmington’s town government (e.g., any appointed or elected positions, serve on any committees?) AND in the Wilmington community (e.g., volunteerism with non-profits, churches, schools, youth sports, etc.).I attended Wilmington Public Schools and am a 1994 graduate of Shawsheen Tech.In 1998, I joined the Wilmington Auxiliary Police, which was a volunteer position where we were tasked with patrolling the school and town buildings and property in the off-hours. I maintained my position with the Auxiliary Police until 2002 when I became a full time officer for another agency.I currently have one child at the West Intermediate and one child in the Shawsheen Elementary School.Being a member of the Mass Maple Producers Association and my proximity to the city of Boston, I have been fortunate enough to be called on by many organizations to volunteer to teach children and groups outside of Wilmington about maple sugaring and beekeeping.Since my run for the Board of Selectmen last year, I have remained active in town politics attending most Selectmen’s meetings and several ZBA (Zoning Board of Appeals) and other departmental meetings. I have been a vocal advocate for transparency in our government after finding that the town was unwilling to provide public documents upon request.Do you/did you support the construction of a detox facility at 362 Middlesex Avenue? Why or why not? What do you say to residents who strongly disagree with your position?No, I did not support the 362 Middlesex Ave. project and that was no secret. I established my position during the last election that I support the idea, but in a different location and if being run by a non-profit facility that could handle the medical side of detox without adding demand for the town’s EMS services. I proposed several times during the election and since on my Facebook page, that our town officials should actively seek out a non-profit hospital looking to expand their footprint and invite their representatives into Wilmington to see all the good Wilmington can offer them. We have vacant properties in several locations which fit zoning that do not abut residential neighborhoods and could accommodate up to and including, an emergency room or 24-hour facility that would be a first line of treatment for folks in our town in an emergency. This type of facility could also house a detox where patients would be treated under the purview of a medical doctor and emergencies could be handled in-house with minimal burdens placed on town emergency services. The proposal as presented had many flaws and the process the town took in an effort to get the project passed was questionable. As I said on many occasions, had any other resident took the plans presented by the applicant into Town Hall, it would not have passed the Building Department’s desk before being denied.In the end, it doesn’t matter if you were for or against the detox, the process the town took regarding the application had no basis in MA General Laws and the liability to the town was not even a concern for the current Board of Selectmen. We heard on many occasions that “The town is going to be sued, it is just a matter of by whom,” and we also heard town counsel say “ The case would be appealed based on discrimination.” When the Board of Selectmen was asked to have a discussion in private regarding derogatory statements made by the chair of the Zoning Board of Appeals at the January 13, 2016 ZBA meeting about the protected class, only one sitting member voted in favor of discussing this matter in executive session with town counsel. One does not need to be an attorney to figure out the argument that attorneys could use in any court action, based on his statement, and to what further extent these comments will cost further taxpayer money in litigation.Finally, having a meeting with no authorization in the general laws granting the Zoning Board of Appeals authority, with the sole intention of over ruling a legal decision was chilling. How many folks reading this answer can say they have been denied a permit for a project and then, were granted a second “bite of the apple” attempt to get that project approved? I can answer that with, it’s never been done before, not in Wilmington and certainly not within the State of Massachusetts. Accommodations, when appropriate are granted by building inspectors, they are not tools attorneys have to override legal decisions made by local zoning boards.The facts I laid out here are testimony to my desire to bring the power back to the residents of Wilmington. I am convinced that the reasons so many questionable actions took place during this process is based on who is involved and what money would have been made. It certainly wouldn’t have positively affected the neighborhood that the facility was being proposed in and I stand behind any resident who is faced with such a drastic project in their backyard.In September, the Wilmington Memorial Library hosted a month-long series of programs on civility to address a growing lack of civility in today’s society. In his latest newsletter, Town Manager Jeff Hull called for more civility in town when discussing controversial topics. If elected, what will you do to create more civility in Wilmington — online, at meetings, and in the community overall?I truly believe to answer this question one needs to understand the root of the problem we have in Wilmington. Residents have begun to see that our government is not working fairly and equally for everyone.Every day I hear from people all over town about how they were denied pool permits because they were too close to wetlands or they were given a hard time because they were a foot or two too close to the property lines with a deck or addition. In the same breath, they say they can drive down the street and show me a house where the wetlands were filled in, or a house that is 3 feet from the property line. Whether or not things were done “legally,” the appearance is that there are different sets of rules for different people.A second reason for the discontent, is town officials’ lack of willingness to take comments from residents and incorporate them into their plans. This was displayed outwardly over the inclusionary bylaw discussion where residents wanted changes to the percentage of units required and a change in open space allowed. The latest draft of this bylaw shows that none of the resident comments were taken seriously and were ignored. I have seen first-hand the unwillingness of town officials to act in a transparent manner where the Secretary of State had to issue three notices of determination against the town because officials refused to turn over requested documents. When they did, they exempted a number of documents as privileged and refused again to turn these over. When the documents were finally turned over, my argument that they were not exempt was proven as a handful of them were released in the end.Finally, I would like to point out the behavior of the Board of Selectmen over the past couple of months. As a board, they have refused to answer resident’s questions when presented in a respectful manner. I understand respect is not easily earned, however it is very easily lost. If I am elected, I have been clear all along that I will listen to residents and represent them. When presented with a question, I will answer it truthfully and with respect. I live my life and raise my children to be self-sufficient, with honesty and integrity as core values. The residents of Wilmington know what they will get by electing me. I will be a voice for them, not the power behind the machine that is currently running this town. Let’s make the change Wilmington needs.What do you feel should be Wilmington’s next TWO municipal or school building projects? Why do you prioritize these two projects over other projects?Before I go into my answer for this question, I will pose a question for readers to think about. Every election, candidates claim they are looking out for seniors in our community and that they are being priced out of living in town once they enter retirement age. Once elected, has anything been done to actually address this issue? The town budget since 2015 has risen over 19 percent, Social Security payouts have only risen 5% in that same time. This year we were all shocked when we opened our tax bills to see what we would now be paying just to live here. At a time when we are still paying off the 86 million dollar high school (which was built smaller than its predecessor), we are now going to ask residents to foot the bill for two more large projects? If we are being asked this question, I have to seriously question the sincerity of those that have once said they care about our seniors remaining here.Here is my answer to this question. I have put forth several times my desire to bring the St Dorothy’s land back to the Selectmen with the intention of following through with a long term lease with a private developer where the town can negotiate as part of the acquisition of the property said developer would include a new Senior Center on that site along with a truly affordable and senior development. This is a way we can truly take care of our seniors, obtain a new senior center costing taxpayers little and take action since politicians have been promising to do something for years.The only large scale project I would entertain in the short term is to deal with our elementary school problems. Consolidation of schools is clearly the future and our elementary schools are in need of attention. A new school that could house grades K or 1-3 which would eliminate 2-4 schools may be the answer. This plan is not without its problems as we would need to find a decent size lot of land within town that we would be able to properly build this size structure while continuing to educate those that are already in the system.On a smaller scale I would like to finally begin the process of a fire substation in North Wilmington as it has been talked about at least since the early 1990’s yet nothing has been done to move the idea forward. One idea I believe the town should look into is a model that was used between the city of Revere and Malden located at 3 Overlook Ridge Drive in Revere.Are there any articles on this year’s Annual Town Meeting Warrant ( that you currently plan to vote against? If so, which articles and why? And what ONE article would you most wish to bring to the attention of voters and ask that they support? To answer the question, I do not support Article 42 (Inclusionary Zoning) as written.Inclusionary zoning was first recommended in late 2001 when the Master Plan was first released. Our town administrators allowed the problem of unchecked development to fester, and in 2010 when the town was compliant with 40B they still did nothing. Former Selectman Frank West went on record at many Board of Selectman meetings to ring the bell for Wilmington to adopt an Inclusionary bylaw and was continually brushed off.Now we are on the heels of falling under the 10 percent affordable housing requirement which will open our neighborhoods up to 40B developments that do not need to abide by zoning ordinances. This means a developer can buy a plot of land next door to you and place a multi unit residential building and as long as it has 20-25 percent affordable units the town can do little to stop it. Properly written inclusionary language would have been a tool to help us when we were above 10 percent, it will not do anything for us at the present time as written.During the process of coming up with this language that we see in this article public comment was solicited. Three issues were brought up. Mr. West asked for a 25% requirement because when you do the math what is required in the article it works out to be about 11%. I personally have done research on Inclusionary Zoning and I found a common requirement is 15%. Suzanne Sullivan and I both brought up the problem that the bylaw eliminates the requirement for open space and also allowing a developer to locate an affordable unit off property is ripe for abuse as it paves a road to a “low income neighborhood”.Not one of these issues were addressed in the language presented giving the feeling that the public comments were nothing but a charade being played under the direction of the development community. A properly constructed Inclusionary Zoning bylaw would have started at a minimum of 15% affordable with a density bonus per acre, with a requirement that graduated as the project got larger ending up to 25%. It would have pertained to all new building projects not just new multi unit construction and it would not allow for offsite units in lieu of. Voting this language in at this point will not help the town as we are already under our 10 percent so it should be voted down and sent back to the drawing board to be written with language that benefits the residents.The one article I would ask the residents to support is Article 43. When a resident has a dream to give back to a community, that community should allow an environment where that individual can realize that dream. Adam has worked hard to make his dream of becoming a firefighter a reality, his age should not become a hindrance. Please vote in support of this article.An issue that our administration has recently been asked to consider, is a change in date of our Annual Town Meeting because of conflicts with other aspects of residents’ lives. I certainly hope that a change in scheduling of the meeting is done quickly because too many residents, such as myself this year are faced with the choice (or lack there of) of missing a child’s life event or attending town meeting. We need to encourage participation in Town Meeting and scheduling at a time when children are making communion, confirmation or another of life’s stepping stones does the opposite.If you are elected, what are at least three big things that you hope to accomplish during your 3 years on the board? How would you accomplish these things?I have to say, I have far more than three things I will work to accomplish in my first year, but if your going to hold me to three:My first is working for a one year holiday from ever rising property taxes. The fact is, the town has $26 million in free cash and another $11 million in the Capital Stabilization account. The C.S. Should not be touched but it is “free cash” should the town need it. With $37 million in what is essentially money obtained by over taxation, the difference between last year’s budget and this year’s is $5 million. If we leveled taxes this year we would still have $32 million in free cash. Enough is enough, residents deserve a break. We hear so often that town officials have concerns for the aging being priced out of town, this is a small way we can help those seniors “and everyone else.” The incumbents called tax relief unrealistic, under their plan your taxes will continue to rise. Third, I plan on bringing the St. Dorothy’s land back up to a vote to fulfill the reason the town spent the money on it in the first place. The incumbents have spoken for three years about doing something for the aging, yet their actions have fallen far short of the finish line. I truly believe this land is the best location for our seniors and a new senior center. I will bring it back for another vote in hopes that other selectmen will see the potential I believe is there. Our seniors of today are the parents of my friends, my classmates and my teammates growing up. Their tax dollars made Wilmington what it is today. It’s time we stop using them as tools in a campaign and start providing them with those services that they expect.I have many plans beyond this, however, as good as these ideas may sound, I need open-minded folks on the board alongside of me. Having consistent four (three) to one votes, as we have had for the past several years, will not achieve anything other than one group’s agenda. I challenge you, the reader, to go back over the past three years worth of selectmen’s meetings and see if either incumbent strayed with their vote from the other more than one or two times. We need folks on the board who are willing to work together toward common goals and not soldiers willing to take orders and vote the way they are told. Wilmington has a chance right now to make the needed changes on the board.What grade would you give to Town Manager Jeff Hull for his performance over the past year? Why? Are you looking for a change in leadership at Town Hall?I am not sure its fair to be asked to give Mr. Hull a grade, because I don’t think we have ever seen Mr. Hull do the job we have asked him to do. After having conversations with town employees from many different departments, I firmly believe that Mr. Hull is being controlled by the Board of Selectmen and what we have seen of Jeff is a result of what specific people on the board are directing him to do. Because of this belief I will give the three sitting members of the Board of Selectmen that consistently vote together a failing grade.Why? For one example, We just watched as the 362 Middlesex Ave. project was forced through town departments, and was approved without so much as a twitch from any boards or commissions, while 99.9% of residents begged the town administration to stop it, yet it came down to one vote in the last board to squash it.Both incumbents are on record in September of 2017 on WCTV as supporting the measure, Use of politically safe ambiguous language does not change the fact that they failed to represent the people who voted them in. Neither incumbent attended any of the Planning or ZBA meetings to advocate for the residents. They stayed home, they watched on TV and at least one of them communicated with Mr. Hull via text message about town counsel working behind the scenes to get the proposal approved. This project was proposed by Mr. David Ray and the chairman of the board’s brother at the aforementioned meeting.A second instance, for the past 20 years the town’s position on Olin was no development until remediation. The town has spent thousands of taxpayer dollars fighting New England Transrail pushing this agenda. We learned in September of 2018 that the town changed its position on development at the site sometime after March of 2018 after receiving correspondence from the chairman of the board of selectmen’s brother proposing the project.Change within Town Hall starts with the Board of Selectmen. Change starts when we can break the consistent four(three) to one votes that come out of every Board of Selectmen’s meeting. Change starts when the board can stop micromanaging our very well paid town manager and letting him sink or swim on his own merits. Change starts when we end the conflicts of interest that have become business as usual in our town hall. Change starts on April 27th when you cast your vote for Fasulo and Sullivan and end the “Caira Fatigue” so often talked about in private circles.(Editor’s Note: The above questions were submitted by readers.

If we allow development before a plan is in place where is the town’s negotiating power to get a proper cleanup? Children as well as adults across town have died more than likely because of the contamination on site. Wilmington residents are unable to drink from their own private wells to this day and news of NDMA being absorbed through vapor during showers makes simple tasks such as showering a very dangerous game for those families effected. The fact is, we have learned through public records requests that the current chairman has sat in on all executive session meetings regarding Olin even after his brother approached the town on behalf of the project which certainly gave a window into the the town’s strategy for its opponents. Having a family member sitting in on executive sessions on the Olin matter now is akin to having the wolf watch the hen house and it cannot continue.last_img read more

Tlingit Code Talkers Honored At Veterans Day Ceremony In Juneau

first_imgSoutheast Alaska Native Veterans honored Tlingit code talkers at a Veterans Day ceremony Tuesday morning in Juneau. The families of five men who served during World War II received medals and Congressional certificates recognizing their service.Download AudioTony Jacobs’ dad and uncle were among the soldiers who used Tlingit to relay important information during the war.“The Tlingit Indians had their own Tlingit names for various places around Southeast,” Jacobs said. “And that’s what they were used for is to let the ship’s captain or quartermasters know where they were located secretly actually, where enemy forces would not be able to ID their location.”Jacobs says he was overcome with emotion at the recognition. He served in the Navy himself during 1970s, and says he’d recommend military service to anyone.“You get benefits – health benefits, education benefits – and you get to see the country and/or the world,” Jacobs said.More than 100 people attended the Southeast Alaska Native Veterans Ceremony, held at the Tlingit & Haida Central Council’s Elizabeth Peratrovich Hall.Mark Jacobs Sr., Harvey Jacobs, Jeff David, Richard Bean Sr. and George Lewis were all posthumously honored by Congress last year.last_img read more

Jofra Archer to play for England in the World Cup Liam Dawson

first_imgArcher will take part in the upcoming World Cup for EnglandPaul Kane/Getty Images)After weeks of speculation, selectors of the English cricket team finally made the decision that had been anticipated. Jofra Archer, the Barbados-born fast bowler, who has been making a big mark in T20 leagues across the world, has been selected in the 15-man squad for the World Cup.Journey of ArcherHe had failed to find a place in the provisional squad of the English team that was announced earlier but the selectors had given him Archer a lifeline by including him in the team for the one-off ODI against Ireland and the 5-match ODI series against Pakistan. The 24-year old right-armer performed well enough in these matches to show that his skills and qualities can be highly valuable in 50-over cricket also.The question that bothered the English selectors was that if Archer is brought into the team, then which seamer from the initial squad would be left out? There were five pacers in the provisional squad namely, Chris Woakes, Liam Plunkett, David Willey, Mark Wood and Tom Curran. One of them had to make way for the new kid on the block. In the end, the unfortunate person turned out to be David Willey. David Willey is the unfortunate bowler to miss out in the team for the World CupGetty ImagesThe series against Pakistan saw almost all bowlers from the original squad showing their worth with decent performances in one match or the other. While Chris Woakes picked up a five-for in the final ODI, David Willey and Liam Plunkett bowled superbly in the second game to restrict Pakistan. Mark Wood’s extra pace made him special while the tricks of Tom Curran gave him an advantage. So, the English selectors were facing a really tough choice. In the end, they decided that Willey would be the least bad option for dropping a player.Other decisionsApart from the expected inclusion of Archer, there are two other changes, one forced and one surprising. Alex Hales’ ban meant that another batsman was needed in the unit. That place has gone to James Vince who has been playing in the series against Pakistan without much success. While he failed to cement his place in the Test side due to continuous failures, his record in domestic limited-overs games seems quite impressive.There is one more change to the squad. England have recalled all-rounder Liam Dawson to replace another all-rounder Joe Denly. The latter hardly got an opportunity to show his qualities and he couldn’t make much of them when they did arrive. Dawson, meanwhile, has been enjoying a very fruitful domestic season which brought him wickets and runs in abundance for Hampshire. He has been selected ahead of other contenders and may well get into the playing XI if England feel the need for another all-rounder besides Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali.England’s World Cup squad: Jonny Bairstow (WK), Jason Roy, James Vince, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (C), Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali, Jos Buttler (WK), Liam Dawson, Adil Rashid, Chris Woakes, Liam Plunkett, Jofra Archer, Mark Wood, Tom Curranlast_img read more

( — A well-insulated mug may keep your coffee somewhat warm, but now scientists have designed a high-tech mug that can keep drinks hot or cold at the perfect temperature for up to half an hour. Citation: Scientists Make Temperature-Regulating Coffee Mug (2009, August 25) retrieved 18 August 2019 from Intel, STMicroelectronics Deliver Industry’s First Phase Change Memory Prototypes Researchers Klaus Sedlbauer and Herbert Sinnesbichler from the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics have created the temperature-regulating mug using phase change material (PCM). PCM is capable of storing and releasing large amounts of heat by changing its phase, such as changing from a solid to a liquid. To design the new mug, the researchers first created a hollow porcelain shell filled with ribbons of highly conductive aluminum. The aluminum formed a honeycomb structure, which the researchers filled with solid PCM. When the mug is filled with a hot beverage, the PCM absorbs the heat and melts like wax into a liquid. This process cools the beverage down to the optimal temperature. As the beverage cools over time, the PCM slowly releases the stored heat back into the drink, maintaining the optimal temperature for up to 30 minutes.As the scientists note, different drinks have different optimal temperatures. Warm drinks such as coffee and tea are best enjoyed at 58° C (136.4° F), beer tastes best at 7° C (44.6° F), and ice-cold drinks are best at -12° C (10.4° F). Since different types of PCM have different chemical properties and melting temperatures, the scientists can make different mugs for different beverages. The downside for the consumer is that there is not a single mug for hot and cold drinks.The researchers hope that, if they can find a business partner, the PCM mugs could be on sale by the end of the year. However, despite the fact that PCM is relatively inexpensive, the mugs will still probably cost significantly more than most mugs. Besides mugs, PCM could have other interesting applications. For instance, researchers are investigating the possibility of using it to keep perishable foods from spoiling, and even putting it on museum walls to protect paintings in the case of a fire, since PCM is non-flammable. PCM already has commercial uses in construction materials, where it is embedded in walls and ceilings to maintain a comfortable room temperature. Some winter jackets also contain PCM for providing greater warmth. In addition, due to their long-term memory capabilities, PCM could be used for storing computer data without the need for an electric current.via: Spiegel© 2009 Explore further This document is subject to copyright.

Out of Africa date brought forward

first_imgÖtzi the Iceman, a well-preserved natural mummy of a Chalcolithic (Copper Age), who was found in 1991 in the Schnalstal glacier in the Ötztal Alps. Credit: South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology ( —A study on human mitochondrial DNA has led to a new estimate of the time at which humans first began to migrate out of Africa, which was much later than previously thought. Triple burial from Dolni Vestonice in the Czech Republic. Credit: J. Svoboda Explore further The new study sequenced mitochondrial DNA from fossils of ancient modern humans rather than living humans. The fossils were dated using radiocarbon dating methods. Since the samples were from humans who lived up to 40,000 years ago, mutations that have occurred in the genome since they died would be missing, and the samples provided a range of calibration points for their estimation of the start of the migration.The disagreement in dating the migration between the new study and previous genetic research could be due to underestimating the number of new mutations in a generation of living humans because of the difficulty of discriminating between true mutations and mistaken ones and because of a desire to avoid false positives. Under-counting would lead to an older estimate for the migration from Africa and other important events.The new date, which agrees with the archaeological evidence, shows that modern humans were in Europe and Asia before and after the most recent glaciation, and they were therefore able to survive and adapt to a dramatically changing climate.The paper was published in the journal Current Biology on 21st March.

Scientists ponder DNA from Siberiacenter_img The new study by an International group of evolutionary geneticists used mitochondrial DNA from the remains of ancient modern humans to estimate the rate of genetic mutations. Three of the skeletons were from the Czech Republic and dated at 31,000 years old, two were 14,000 years old, from Oberkassel, Germany. Another sample used was the natural mummy Ötzi the Iceman, who lived some time between 3350 and 3100 BC. The most recent skeleton was that of a man who lived in medieval France 700 years ago, while the oldest was dated at 40,000 years ago, and came from Tianyuan in China.The results suggest that the genetic divergence between African and non-African humans began between 62 and 95 thousand years ago, which tallies with other studies estimating the time through dating of stone tools and fossils, but they disagree with the results of recent genetic studies that estimated the migration began much earlier, up to 130 thousand years ago or even before.The previous studies sequenced the entire genome of living humans to count the number of genetic mutations (around 50) in newborn babies compared to the parents to determine the generational mutation rate. This then provided the a molecular “clock,” which could be extrapolated backwards to date important events in human evolution.

Spaces that weave memories

first_imgUnravelling the fascinating bond that exists between people, places and memories, ‘The Festival of Places’ is a unique event which aims to highlight the rich cultural legacy of places that exist in Indian cities, towns and villages. It explores the invaluable cultural fabric and a memory associated with places and provides an opportunity for people to share their personal narratives. The festival is also about understanding the idea of ‘Space as a Place’; about exploring ‘Places’ that form an integral part of cities and towns; about experiencing ‘places as vital and meaningful connected spaces’ through which urban life throbs; and rediscovering the lost art of creating vibrant places that nurture culture and creativity. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe Festival conceptualised by CATTS, a not-for-profit organisation working in the area of heritage conservation and management, has been envisaged as a convergence of people from all walks of life and disciplines who seek a deeper understanding of Indian culture through the places we live in as well as share an eagerness to rejuvenate them. The festival encourages participation of people of all ages and experience for developing an in-depth understanding of the places and spaces we live in, seeking people to play an active role both in the creation of new places and the preservation and sustenance of existing ones. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveIt will inspire people to enjoy and creatively engage with places in cities for meaningful action. And will motivate people to reimagine, reclaim and revitalize places especially the ones in the public realm. It will encourage people to think about sustenance and resilience, about accessibility and mobility, about the future of their cities and communities. In this sense, the festival goes beyond just being an event to becoming a community movement for reviving and re-imagining places at the heart of healthy and vibrant communities.last_img read more

The Right Ball for Playing Catch While Skydiving

first_imgRhett AllainOK, let’s get some terminal velocity values for different balls. First, there are two values that shouldn’t really change much. There is the density of air (ρ), with a value of around 1.2 kg/m3, and there is the drag coefficient (*C) for a sphere, with a value of about 0.47. But after that, the terminal velocity depends on both the mass and the radius, since the cross-sectional area of a sphere is proportional to the square of the radius.I’m going to now think of all the different balls I could drop. Basketball, baseball, soccer ball. You name it. I can find the mass and the radius and use that to calculate the terminal velocity. What about the terminal velocity of a skydiver? The terminal speed depends on the size of the human and the free fall position, but a rough estimate is 120 mph (54 m/s).Here is a chart of the terminal velocity for different balls. I looked up the mass and radius on Wikipedia (of course).[embedded content]There you have it. None of these balls would work for tossing during a skydive. Actually, it’s even worse than this. In the video above showing the two skydivers, they are in a “sitting” position. I suspect that this change in position from the normal free fall position would increase their terminal velocity to perhaps 65 m/s or something. These balls would just not keep up with the falling humans. Rhett AllainDon’t worry about the factor of 1/2 or the fact that the velocity is squared. Those are just properties of this force model that we will use to look at this falling ball.So, what happens to a falling object (let’s say it’s a ball) if you consider this air resistance force acting on it along with the gravitational force? Since the air resistance depends on the velocity, right when you release it from rest there is no air resistance force on it. With only the gravitational force acting on it, the ball speeds up and falls. But now, as it starts to move, the air resistance force starts to act on it in the opposite direction that it’s falling. With these two forces, the acceleration is now less than what it would be with just gravity. But the ball still falls and speeds up.Eventually, the velocity of the ball will increase to the point where the downward gravitational force and the upward air resistance force are equal. With equal forces in opposite directions, the net force on the ball is zero and it stops speeding up. It falls but at a constant velocity. We call this “terminal velocity” since it stops speeding up.Suppose I want to calculate the terminal velocity of a falling ball. I can do this by setting the gravitational force (mg where m is the mass and g is the gravitational field) equal to the air resistance force and then solving for the velocity. Here is what that looks like. (Math warning.) Check out this awesome video. Two skydivers are traveling downward and passing a small ball back and forth. Pretty cool, right? But what’s going on here and how can you get something like this to work? Does it have to be a special ball? Let’s get to the physics of this cool trick.

Sign up for our daily newsletter and never miss our latest and greatest stories You may have heard something about all objects falling with the same constant acceleration. There was even that story of Galileo dropping two spheres of different masses off the leaning tower of Pisa. Not sure if it’s true, but his point was to show that both the gravitational force and the acceleration of an object depend on mass. When you put these two ideas together, the mass cancels. Any object dropped on the surface of Earth will fall and speed up with an acceleration of about 9.8 meters per second squared—except when it doesn’t. Yes, this idea is only approximately true.If you dropped a tennis ball and a basketball from a standing position and you let them go at the exact same time, they would hit the ground at the same time. If you take a rock and a feather, however, they don’t hit the ground at the same time. That is because of a force other than the gravitational force: air resistance.You probably already have some experience with the air resistance force. If you stick your hand out the window of a moving car, you can feel the air pushing against you. As a basic model, this air resistance force has the following properties (this is just a model):The air resistance force increases with the speed of the object (v).The force is in the opposite direction of the velocity of the object.It depends on the cross-sectional area (A) and shape of the object—a parameter we call the drag coefficient (C).It depends on the density of air (ρ).As an equation, the magnitude of this force looks like this: Honestly, I thought the golf ball would do the trick. It has a fairly high density compared to the other balls—the problem, however, is that air drag depends on the square of the radius, but the weight depends on the radius cubed. It’s got a nice density, but it’s just too darn small to fall fast enough.Finally, let’s go back to this skydiving ball. It’s actually a product you can buy—it’s called the Vladiball. Apparently, this is a weighted ball so that it has a skydiver-like terminal velocity. But wait! It carries extra weight that is released when the ball reaches an altitude of 1,800 feet (or so).OK, but I don’t want to talk about the specifications of the vladiball. Instead, let’s consider what it would be like to pass this ball back and forth. Since the air resistance force balances with the gravitational force, would it just be like a frictionless puck on a flat surface? It might seem that way, but no. It would still have a significant drag force in the horizontal direction. Why? The short answer is because the air drag force depends on the square of the velocity. Let me show you with a diagram.Suppose that a ball is falling at terminal velocity and then tossed horizontally. So, it’s mostly moving down, but also a little to the side. In that case, there are still just two forces on the ball. Here is a diagram.Rhett AllainIt turns out that the horizontal component of the air drag doesn’t just depend on the horizontal velocity. No, it depends on the total velocity, since the air force has a velocity squared term in it. This means that a fast-falling ball, even at terminal velocity, will still have a significant horizontal drag force on it when you toss it to another skydiver. But that just means you might have to push it a little harder to get the ball over to your friend. It should still be a fun game—just don’t drop that ball.last_img read more

Cad é an scéil Now you can translate Irish instantly with Google

first_imgThe Google Translate app has been the go-to tool for travellers, academics, and the curious alike, with its game-changing live camera translation function helping people make instant sense of signs, menus, and other foreign language text, all with just a point of their camera.To date, Google Translate has supported the conversion of almost 40 languages into English via this function, but today they have announced that 89 languages can now be translated live into the 100+ total languages supported by Google Translate. This means that translating Irish into German or Japanese is now a possibility, opening up a world of opportunity and fun.Not only is this a boon for Irish people travelling abroad, but visitors to Gaeltacht areas and others with an interest in Gaeilge can now get instant help and clarification thanks to Google Translate. For the first time, Neural Machine Translation (NMT) technology is built into instant camera translations, which produces more accurate and natural translations and reduces errors by 55-85 per cent in certain language pairs. And most of the languages can be downloaded onto your device so that you can use the feature without an internet connection. However, when your device is connected to the internet, the feature uses that connection to produce higher quality translations.A language ‘auto detect’ function has been added too. When travelling abroad, especially in a region with multiple languages or unfamiliar symbols, the first challenge is to know the language of the text. But in the new version of the app, you can just select “Detect language” as the source language, and the Translate app will automatically detect the language and translate.To round it all off, the app has got a new redesign and under-the-hood improvements, resulting in the fastest and most powerful Google Translate to date. The app is available for download now on both Android and iOS platforms.Read more here.last_img read more
